Can somone explain to me why we’re bringing up old news and why are my readers emailing this old news to me?

For example, didn’t we already know that actor Shia LaBeouf’s people cooked up a fake story about him dating Rihanna, but no one believed the story so they dropped it? Why is he bringing this up again?

“It never got beyond one date,” he says. “The spark wasn’t there. We weren’t passionate about each other in that way, so we remain friends.” [link]

Correction: If it happened at all the way he says it did, I’m sure SHE wasn’t passionate about him in that way. I mean, she probably thought she was going on an innocent lunch date with the nerdy looking guy. I’m sure she wasn’t planning a lifetime together with him based on one date.

And speaking of nerdy looking guys and stories that should never see the light of day: why are we talking about these two again? She’s nothing spectacular and neither is he. SO they’re dating? So what? Don’t we already know that? Haven’t we talked about them for going on two years now? Am I missing something here?

Thanks to loyal readers Brenda and Shana for bringing this to my attention. But I don’t see the big deal.

Naturally people were pretty confused yesterday when on the Washington Times’ website a story about dead kids ran with a picture of the Obama children. Time for the editor John Solomon to say he’s sorry or pass the blame potato:

    Solomon says that no human individual paired the pic with the story, that a technological foul-up was to blame, and that the paper is tweaking its photo selection software to make sure this doesn’t happen again.

    “The theme engine, through automation, grabbed a photo it thought was relevant, and attached it to the story,” Solomon says, acknowledging that the photo had gone up without a person seeing it. “There was no editorial decision to run it. As soon as it was brought to our attention, we pulled it down.”

    Solomon also conceded that the automated system the paper has in place to pick photos doesn’t have a tight enough screening process, and said steps were being taken to fix that. “We regret that the technology has let us down in this case,” he said, “and are working to make sure that the [photo] matches are more relevant in the future.”

Well, they also say there’s a kernel of truth in every rumor. MTV VJ La La Vazquez upset all the femmes and set tongues a wagging when she attended a recent Hawks game in Atlanta with this cute Dom by her side (her name is Candice Dixon for those of you who were wondering).

Anyway, I totally ignored the rumors since I had never heard such a thing about La La — and me and La La go way back so if anyone should know about her going that way it should be me, right?

When this question was brought up in certain circles that I run in, I defended La La by asking a simple question: can’t a beautiful woman sit beside a cute Dom at a basketball game without sparking unnecessary rumors about her sexuality? What do you guys think?

T.I. posed with the LSLH Nuvo water girls at his going away party in Miami at a private mansion (I guess all the black chicks were busy working other gigs). I wish I had thought of packagaing filtered tap water in pretty bottles and selling them. I would be sitting on a beach in Saint-Tropez right now sipping Reisling wine instead of reading all this hate mail while blogging on Sandrarose.com.

This is how Tameka “Tiny” Cottle always rolls when she’s on the move: With a chick on either side of her. Don’t front, you know you would love to be Lil mama for one day! Tiny attended her man T.I.’s going away party at a private mansion in Miami over the weekend. I heard the party was well-attended by industry folk.

Kevin Liles attended T.I.’s party with Erika Jones — who has a lot in common with Gabrielle Union. Why is it that wealthy black men have a hard time distinguishing golddiggers from honest, decent hard working black women? If you recall, Erika once dated NBA player Shawn Marion, who almost put a ring on her finger (luckily, he came to his senses). Then she sort of bounced around the industry until she landed a Wall Street tycoon by the name of Londell something. He quickly sent her packing, and now she’s biding her time with Kevin Liles’ wallet.

No ma’am! Who does Eva Pigford think she is, Rihanna? Eva’s stylist should be brought up on charges for doing this to her!

Am I the only one thinking naughty thoughts about this picture of the lovely Dania Ramirez and industry bicycle Gabrielle Union?

WHERE’S CASSIE?
Chick magnet Sean “Diddy” Combs hosted the “Ultimate Daylife Affair” party at the Wet Republic pool at the MGM Grand Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday. Wouldn’t you love to be Diddy for a day?

Don’t get it twisted. I’m only posting two pics of Diddy from the same event because those kicks he’s wearing are tight.

Bloggers LT, aka Gyant (he named himself after a blog) and Kodak Boi (right) of KiddUNot.com attended T.I.’s going away party in Miami as well. Some of you may recall LT from this post I wrote up on him. At the time he was gainfully employed at SOHH.com, and thought he was the shit. Now he’s unemployed and still thinks he’s the shit.

Madonna looked fly as she escorted adopted son David Banda to services at the Kabbalah Center in Manhattan on Saturday. I would rock that entire outfit that Madonna has on if I could afford it.

Actor Hugh Jackman (X-Men Wolverines) and his adopted son Oscar took a stroll through Manhattan over the weekend. Hugh and his wife also adopted a daughter after she suffered two miscarriages.

Comedian/actress Rosie O’Donnell attended Z100’s Zootopia 2009 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ with her adopted son Parker, 14, over the weekend. Rosie and her life partner Kelli Carpenter together adopted 2 other children. A fourth child was born to Carpenter through artificial insemination. And an adopted daughter was removed from the couple’s home after Florida enforced it’s own law prohibiting same sex couples from adopting.

Doesn’t Keyshia Cole look like she’s saying, “Come get some,” in this pic? Keyshia is back on the road performing with Keri Hilson, The Dream and Bobby Valentino. Her ‘Different Me’ tour hit Wisconsin and Chicago this weekend. I hear she’s traveling with her steady boyfriend who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers. I wonder which one he is? No, it isn’t Lebron! Savannah has him on lock. She put that love stick on him and he isn’t going anywhere!

Keyshia Cole brings her show home to Atlanta on Thursday (5/21) where she will perform at the fabulous Fox Theater. I’ll be there! I just need to find someone to go with me since my few good friends are married with children.

PR Diva Sherri Riley (GLUE, Inc), left, attended Dallas Austin’s annual black tie foundation benefit dinner at a private residence over the weekend. That’s Dallas (center) with his Aunt Clary Austin, right.

Chilli, who has a son with Dallas Austin (Tron) attended the benefit and posed with Jazze Pha, who some of my readers have a huge crush on. They just won’t admit it, but they know they LOVE them some Jazze!

I realize Michelle Obama is not a celebrity, so please hold your emails. The First lady had a ball at the recent University of California Commencement ceremonies. I wish I could say the same for the other tired folks around her who look bored out of their minds.

Don’t you want to say, “wake up sleepy head!,” when you look at this photo of MTV VJ La La Vazquez? She’s so adorable. Hopefully the Lakers fans will be kinder to her in the stands than those horrid Mavs fans were last week. La La’s man Carmelo and his Denver Nuggets take on Kobe Bean in the first game of the Western Conference Finals tomorrow night at the Staples Center. We don’t think the Nuggets have much of a chance against the Lakers, but we’re rooting for the Nuggets anyway!

I’m trying to figure out why the ladies (young and old) LOVE them some Soulja Boy so much. Is the little homie using sign language to tell us that he is packing something serious? Soulja Boy performed during Z100s Zootopia ’09 concert over the weekend.
