Ciara's video for her collabo with Young Jeezy, "Never Ever" premiered yesterday. I'm feeling it. Shout outs to producers Jasper Cameron and Big Reese who you see at the beginning of the vid.

Love the throwback reel to reel machines, the Janet Jackson vibe and the pooch eating out of a bowl bigger than he is, lol. It's the little details that makes this video cute.

The song: meh.

Puma released a limited edition shoe to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Olympian Tommy Smith's defiant "Black Power" raised fist at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.

Smith came back to the states and was ostracized and roundly criticized for his public display of defiance.

The shoes come in black suede with a pattern of tiny "Black Fists" on them.

Would you wear these shoes? And would you be offended if a company Commemorated the KKK with sneakers with little tiny white hoods on them?

I'm just sayin' why would Puma bring this back up and inflame prejudices all over again?

Defiant Olympic Gold medalist Tommy Smith (Mexico City 1968) and his family allowed a photographer to be present as they celebrated the Inauguration of America's 44th President (America's 1st Black President). 40 years later folks still remember "The Black Fist". Source

Remember that chick who who didn't wear white at Rick Ross' white-themed birthday bash on a yacht in Miami last night?

Well Fresh recognized her from the pictures. I figured the chick was trying to be seen.

Hi Sandra! I was checking out your blog this afternoon and noticed that the chicky poo that you pointed out that was not in dress code at Office Rawse's birthday party was a model by the name of Paris Morton. [Myspace]
She and her sisters who were also seen at the same table - -[Myspace]
have appeared in men's magazines and things of that nature showing their two pieces and thighs. I don't have anything bad to say about any of them because I have never encountered them personally just thought you may want to know!

Keep up the hard work!

Ludacris recently teamed up with Best Buy to do a new TSA (Teen Service Announcement) for the companies teenage-based social networking site. In the new spot Luda says “We all make mistakes, but you have to learn from your mistakes. Try not to make the same mistakes twice in life. We all have teenage years where we kind of were rebellious and just doing things that we’re finding out about life”

My apologies for the slow posts today. I had to handle something expeditiously. Did y'all hear loyal reader and talk show diva Tyra Banks shout me out today? Here's what she said according to Hot 107.9's Mz Shyneka (I missed it):

2day she was doing a show on cyber celebrities child stars she introduced this 1 little girl and said she 1st seen her on a website call SandraRose this little girl was a fierce little cat walker and it was a very good segment Tyra is gonna have the little girl on a episode of ANTM to teach contestant how to work it. I think the other kids she found on you tube ur site was the only 1 she said specifically.

Much respect to Tyra Banks, and loyal reader, Luda's mom Roberta Shields, who heads The Ludacris Foundation.

Comments Off on Obama’s Wasteful Stimulus Package Includes $4 Billion To ACORN (Anyone Surprised?)

Barack Obama's bloated $800 billion stimulus package includes billions of dollars to the Chicago community activist organization ACORN. This is the same organization that Obama claimed he had nothing to do with until the media proved otherwise.

The $4.19 billion slush fund would be “used for neighborhood stabilization activities related to emergency assistance for the redevelopment of abandoned and foreclosed homes." Right. Let's see how many abandoned homes in Chicago actually get fixed up with this money.

The legislation also removes lobbying restrictions that would include vetting by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development or state and local government agencies. That's because ACORN is under investigation by the federal government for various fraudulent activities. So Obama made sure ACORN would not be denied these funds through vetting.

According to non-profit watchdog Mathew Vadum, the middlemen -- meaning the government -- would be eliminated, "making it easier to get Uncle Sam’s largess directly into the hands of the same people who run ACORN’s various voter fraud and extortion rackets."

How exactly will this help to stimulate the economy? Isn't it great the way government works for everyone but us?

Oh lookey, another rap beef. This one is between rappers 50 Cent and Rick Ross whose career may very well be over as Fiddy says in his rap. 50 sounds desperate on this track doesn't he? The beat is tight though. I know Rick is secretly thanking Fiddy for the much needed exposure.


Rick Ross called up Angela Yee on Shade45 Morning Show to discuss his beef with Fiddy and his upcoming album.

Rick Ross: ExclusiveAccess.net

Nobody loves impeached Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Yesterday, his fellow legislators and (co-conspirators) voted unanimously to kick him out of the governor's mansion. Blago will never work in Illinois government again. But does that mean the book is closed on him or will he start talking now that he has no incentive to keep his mouth shut?

Rick Ross threw a Boujhetto white-themed birthday bash for himself in Miami on board the Princess Lady yesterday. All of Liberty City turned out but only a select few made it on board. The reason is the gift bags were some of the most expensive ever. Thanks to ExclusiveAccess.net for the pics!

In addition to bottles of liquor worth hundreds, each bag contained stacks of cash ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. As you can see DJ Khaled got the one with 10 stacks! Lucky him! I'm just wondering who paid for all that?


Rick's daughter is beautiful.


I hear Shawty Lo was on board asking if anyone's seen T.I. I'm just kidding. But I see Lo refuses to let go of that fake ice.


Rick had a fancy Maybach birthday cake.


There's always one in the bunch who ignores the dress code at every white party because they think they're special.

In addition to cash, each money green gift bag contained one of these. They say Rick's gift bags were the most expensive ever. See one of the bags in the rear?


I see DJ Khaled ignored the dress code.

Comments Off on Photo of the Day: Obama Tries To Walk Through Window

Barack Obama lost his bearings at the White House on Tuesday and attempted to walk through a window to get into the Oval office. The door was several feet to his right.

Note to Obama: the doors are the ones with the door knobs.

Rapper Young Jeezy remixed his "My President is Black" track to include a diss to Bill O'Reilly of Fox's O'Reilly Factor.

Among the lyrical gems: "Bill O'Reilly Eat A Dick." Now that's class. No wonder Jeezy won't go on O'Reilly's show.

Something tells me Barack Obama would probably give Jeezy a high five for that one.

Sandra,

You need to school some of your users by doing a medical minute on fetal alcohol syndrome. The ones saying that a little alcohol is OK while pregnant are so wrong. My doctor emphasized that NO amount of alcohol is safe while you are pregnant. That is just old advice that doctor's used to give patients a while back before the full affects of fetal alcohol syndrome were realized and now any doctor that advises their patients that a small amount of alcohol is OK can be considered negligent. Please ladies do your research. Any range of problems a child has can be caused by FAS. So, it is better to be safe than sorry. I LOVE your blog Sandra!

This is disgraceful.

From Wedoitrightmag.com:

Recently Kanye West’s email accounts have been targeted by a group of hackers. The deviant’s first stunt caused mass hysteria through out the world by claiming that West was open to doing bi-sexual pornography. However, apparently, the hackers were dissatisfied with the damage on West’s image, and have attacked him again.

The hackers clearly intended to satirize West’s “Where Are You Yeezy” blog posts - a popular feature on his blog. The attack also included ridicule of West’s new shoe with high-end fashion designer Louis Vutton. READ MORE...

UPDATED: (scroll down)

According to Gawker.com and other online reports, Michelle Obama is pregnant with her third child.

But why was she drinking last week at the Inauguration? Rumors of Michelle Obama's pregnancy have been swirling around D.C. for weeks.

Yet neither Michelle or Barack have denied the rumor leading to more rampant speculation. It isn't like they aren't aware of the rumors. We know Michelle reads the blogs.

Anyway, congrats to them. And I might add that if it's another girl: Sandra Rose Obama has a nice ring to it.

UPDATED:

The NY TImes reports that the Obamas are flying in their own private chef from Chicago to cook Michelle's meals for her while she's prego.

Also, Barack Obama keeps the White House thermostat at a toasty 77 degrees so Michelle is comfortable. (LINK)

But his staff is complaining to the media about the insufferable heat which prompted his mouth piece to say, “He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?”
