Notorious woman beater, Chris Brown, finally released a prepared statement through his publicist. We know he didn’t write this statement (the publicist did) so the words are meaningless. But this is a blog and we do aim to entertain. So here it is for what it’s worth:
“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writing under my name are frauds.” [LINK]
Meanwhile, industry insiders are scratching their heads and asking how did Rihanna go from a man (Jay Z) to a geeky, silly, immature boy?
I know Jordin Sparks is counting her blessings that CB hooked up with RiRi instead of her!
Jay Z refused to be pulled into the middle of the drama surrounding his protégé RiRi. He told HollyScoop.com,
“It’s not a soundbite, this is a real situation. You have to have compassion for others. Just imagine it being your sister or mom and then think about how we should talk about that.”
But he added, “I just think we should all support her. She’s going through a tough time. You have to realize she’s a young girl, as well. She’s very young.”
Police say the body of a black male found inside a Ford Explorer over the weekend is that of missing nightclub promoter Marc Stewart.
A passer-by spotted the truck parked on a side street in unincorporated Gwinnett County Saturday night, and called police.
Stewart’s wife, Andrea White, reported him missing on Feb. 11 when he failed to return home from work.
Stewart was last seen leaving his Stone Mountain home Wednesday morning at 8:30 AM in a silver 2005 Ford Explorer. Friends say Stewart’s ATM bank card and cell phone had been used in the days following his disappearance.
White told police she received an email alert from Bank of America warning of “irregular check card activity” on Stewart’s account 3 hours after Stewart called White to say he was on his way home.
Stewart, a native Jamaican, was a well known nightclub promoter and party planner who specialized in events with a Caribbean flavor.
Stewart was president and chief executive officer of Island Coast Entertainment, an event planning firm based in Atlanta.
Police have classified Stewart’s death as a homicide.
Here’s a video from D. Woods, formerly of Danity Kane, to all you Grinch’s who just want this day to be over with. If you don’t have a Valentine, you have work to do in the ’09. If you do have one (or two), why are you on the Internet today?
Sri Lankan star M.I.A. (“Paper Planes”) gave birth to a boy, according to online reports via Contactmusic.com:
Indian gossip website DesiHits.com was the first to report the Paper Planes hitmaker, who performed on her due date at the Grammy Awards (08Feb09), gave birth to a baby boy on 12 February (09).
In a recent interview, the singer/rapper revealed she thought her child would be a boy, stating, “It doesn’t matter to me if it’s a boy or a girl. If it’s a girl she will be a tough girl, but I think I may have a boy because I have a pointy stomach.”
M.I.A., real name Maya Arulpragasam, was so worried about going into labour at the Grammys, she had an ambulance, stretcher and golf cart on standby – and her fiance Benjamin Brewer used a stopwatch to time her contractions shortly after she came off stage following her performance with Jay-Z, T.I, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.
The baby’s dad, Ben Brewer, is the biracial son of Edgar Bronfman Jr., CEO of Warner Music Group, who comes from one of the wealthiest Jewish families in Canada.
Bronfman Jr.’s marriage to Brewer’s black mother, Sherry Brewer, was a source of contention between Edgar Jr. and his dad, Edgar Bronfman Sr., the wealthy heir to the Seagrams liquor fortune.
Bronfman Sr., considered by some to be racist, wrote in his memoirs:
“I very much wanted for him to end the relationship, because I told him, all marriages are difficult enough without the added stress of totally different backgrounds. Sherry offered to convert [to Judaism], which though well intentioned, was not the point.”
Edgar Jr. and Sherry had two more children before divorcing in 1991.

Talk about school spirit. High school student “Brody” says:
I think it’s ridiculous that they want to change the name to Barack Obama High School! What has he done so far? Until he does something as president, we can’t say that he’s the greatest president there ever was. He hasn’t done anything yet.
