Former lovers, rap icon Q-Tip and radio personality Angie Martinez (Hot 97), reminisced at the Home Cooking Thursdays event in NYC last night.
Actor/singer Tyrese Gibson cut a dashing figure at the Hollywood premiere of Warner Bros. “Terminator Salvation” at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre yesterday. They should name a candy bar with dark creamy chocolate and nuts after Tyrese.
R&B singer John Legend performed live at S.O.B.’s last night with the biggest fraud in Hip Hop, Rick Ross, who had the nerve to sport a Louis Vuitton belt after he was publicly backslapped by LV for wearing bootleg LV shades on the cover of XXL. We hope the belt was the genuine article for his sake.
Speaking of Louis Vuitton, British singer Estelle wore a LV scarf from the Stephen Sprouse collection to S.O.B.’s with shredded jeans, a cropped leather jacket and platform sandals. We’re glad to see that Estelle has curtailed her habitual Twittering over the past few days. We might even start following her again.
LOVE the shoes Estelle! Too hawt!

Actor Forest Whitaker dined with his daughter Sonnet Whitaker and anorexic wife Keisha at the “Mandela Day” Awareness Event at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills yesterday. If Forest took his wife to such dinner events 7 nights a week, maybe she would gain a few pounds. It’s just a thought.
Unemployed music mogul Jermaine Dupri made a few dollars spinning at T-Mobile’s Launch party in Houston for their new Sidekick LX 2009. Some of you know that I took off half a day on Wednesday to pick up my new SK LX 09 after dealing with the old LX’s crappy sound for 6 months. The new SK LX is a major improvement over the old one. Though the sound quality remains an issue with these phones. I still hear an echo in my phone when I’m on it. But the new features, including the free apps (mapping, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter), the 3G network, and the faster web surfing make up for the sound quality. I still don’t think the phone is worth $450 though.
Rapper T.I. (standing) and comedian Lil Duval chill at the poolside of T.I.’s rented manse in Miami last night. The manse owners could have at least cleaned out the pool for him. As you know, T.I. is throwing hella parties down in Miami this weekend before he enters the federal prison system later this month. A little birdie told me that T.I. will also host a private birthday party for his youngest son Major Philant, who turns 1 on Saturday. Photo: Twitpic
