Yesterday I posted a quote from a speech given by T.I. in which he thanked God for touching his life. Here is the full video of the speech T.I. gave during an inaugural event in D.C. I hope you agree that the quote sounds different when shown in its proper context.
Thanks to loyal reader (and client) Hannah for the video link!
Gorgeous actresses Sanaa Lathan and Taraji P. Henson skipped the chaos in D.C. to attend the Svedka “The Future Starts Now” Inauguration Party on Tuesday (1/20) in LA. I’m not trying to start any rumors mind you, but don’t they look cute together?
WHO WORE IT BEST?
They both looked a hawt mess! Rihanna especially. She’s my girl and all, but lately she’s been copping attitudes with the press — specifically the photographers. Some celebrities get to where they are and they forget who helped get them there. Before she was a star she wished photographers would notice her. That’s why I love Monica because she’s humble and she’s nice to everyone — even if she’s tired and doesn’t want to be. That’s called professionalism and discipline. Being a celebrity is a job, and as with any job a little professionalism is required. Everybody has a job to do including those photographers. They have to eat too. A lot of these young celebs could learn a little something about professionalism from the veterans.
Actor Samuel L. Jackson and a youthful looking Michael Jordan attended Jordan’s Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament At The One & Only Ocean Club in the Bahamas yesterday (1/21). Be careful guys! Bodies have been dropping in the Bahamas lately. I don’t know if it’s something in the water or what. But if I hear of one more celebrity dying in the Bahamas… Did you hear John Travolta is being extorted by a Bahamian ambulance crew? They’re attempting to sell pictures of his dying son to the highest bidder. Shameful!
Actors Boris Kodjoe and Idris Elba also attended Jordan’s golf tourney yesterday. Wouldn’t you love to be sandwiched between these two hunks?
Someone needs to whisper in Chris Tucker’s ear and tell him his jeans are way too tight. Love the LV belt.
Sexual chocolate Omar Epps arrived at the “House” 100th episode party in his Audi last night in LA. That’s his tag number gold diggers. You know what to do. 😉
Bill O’Reilly and Dennis Miller are in rare form dissin’ my husband Young Jeezy and Jay Z like it ain’t no thang. I don’t care what O’Reilly says about Jigga, but leave Jeezy alone!
Jeezy can’t help it, he just got caught up in the rapture like the other Kool aid drinkers. Hopefully, Jeezy will accept O’Reilly’s overt invitation to appear on his show. Publicity Diva Tracy Nguyen can make that happen!
By the way, the Inaugural rap by Jeezy, Jigga and others was taped at Alex Gidewon’s Inaugural Bash at LOVE nightclub in D.C. “Deep Pockets” Gidewon and AG Entertainment did it up big for the Inauguration!
After fumbling the oath of office yesterday, Barack Obama took the oath again at the White House tonight without the pomp and circumstance of yesterday’s affair.
Amid Constitutional concerns, Chief Justice Roberts was ushered into the Map Room of the White House at 7:35 PM where he administered a second oath to Obama in front of the press pool.
A White House official said:
“We believe that the oath of office was administered effectively and that the president was sworn in appropriately yesterday. But the oath appears in the Constitution itself. And out of an abundance of caution, because there was one word out of sequence, Chief Justice Roberts administered the oath a second time,” (LINK)
It is the first time in history that a new president had to retake the oath of office.
According to some of my readers, two previous presidents — Calvin Coolidge and Chester Arthur, retook the oath before Obama.
“I want to thank God for somehow … I know he perfect. So I’mma thank him for everything. I’mma thank him for making me drop out of school. I’mma thank him for making me run the streets. I’mma thank him for making me sell crack. I’mma thank him for making me have shoot-outs. I’mma thank him for allowing me to watch my partners die in my arms, So I’d be fearful enough for my life and paranoid enough to go out and cop machine guns and silencers so I catch a fed case and I have to put up $3 million for my bond so I have to spend seven months of my life in my house, so I have to spend a year of my life in prison just so I be validated enough to get out there and touch the youth because they know that I done been through it, and if I say it, it means something. You know what I’m saying?” (LINK)
