...but some people need a little bit more convincing. So, actor-turned-rapper Drake called into the Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds show on Hot 97 in NYC to clear the air. Drake denied the rumors that RiRi is his girl. He says he has the "utmost respect" for Rihanna and he claims that Rihanna's people started the rumor to use him (Yawn).

How much you want to bet his girlfriend Bria Myles put him up to it. No doubt Drake's management is none too happy that their PR stunt didn't catch fire. Note to publicists: stay thinking consumers are dumb and they will fool you every time!


The release of Flo Rida's music video "Sugar" ends speculation that the video was delayed due to the director editing out footage of the very beautiful Natasha Majors.

Click here to read all about the racist drama on the video set. Thankfully, everything worked out in the end. The video is visually stunning and the LSLH video chicks were relegated to background status as they should be. They are not even in the same league as Natasha.

Lmao @ the sexy "dentist" holding the gas mask upside down on Flo Rida's face (inside joke).

Before you start hollering police brutality, we didn't see what the boy did to deserve being bloodied and choked into submission. Maybe he got out of pocket or drew a weapon on the cops. Sometimes you have to put your foot on the necks of these young thugs today. The situation is getting out of control in the hood.

The Kardashian sisters, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, threw a grand opening party on Miami Beach last night for their new business venture, Dah Miami at Clevelander Hotel after vandalizing the store over the weekend to gain the maximum press exposure.

Wow, Eve, do you think you have enough foundation on your face, mama? Rapper-turned-actress Eve showed off her new tranny look at the 2nd Annual Logo NewNowNext Awards at the Hiro Ballroom in NYC last night.

Radio Diva Wendy Williams hit up the Logo Awards last night in NYC looking fabuloso. Wendy returned to the airwaves at WBLS after serving out a week's suspension for allowing her hubby to run amok in the station. Kevin had been previously banned from the station for allegedly sexually harassing Wendy's former scheduler (I forget the chick's name).

TV personality Bethanny Frankel also attended the Logo awards. Beth was one of my favorite cast members on this season's Real Housewives of New York, along with Jill and the very neurotic Ramona. LOVE them! Real always recognizes real. Can't wait for next season to start.

Actor Tristan Wilds (90210) gave the cougars palpitations when he walked into the Lia Sophia Upfront Suite at The London Hotel in NYC yesterday. Here Tristan models a free pair of Solstice sunglasses. Just one of the many perks of being a celebrity.

Former supermodel, and talk show Diva Tyra Banks attended CW Network's 2009 Upfront at Madison Square Garden in NYC today. As you know, CW canceled the atrocious urban soap opera The Game. The show jumped the shark when the writers asked its audience to believe that two intelligent black women would fight over an obviously gay man.

Can Lady Gaga put on some clothes please? I'm so tired of seeing her half naked azz all over the blogs! She's about as bad as Beyonce.

Rapper/actor LL Cool J was spotted in NYC last night looking as cool as a cucumber on steroids. Doesn't LL look like he's auditioning for the remake of Whitney Houston's The Bodyguard? He should pose for the cover of a pamphlet on avoiding steroid abuse.

The fallout over the House refusal to back Obama's closing of Gitmo continues. For whatever reason (low ratings, etc.) the mainstream media is finally beginning to shine a light on some of Barack Hussein Obama's questionable policy decisions.

Obama's decision to close Gitmo, which he made on his 2nd day in office, stands out as the one decision that should have raised all sorts of red flags for Americans. Simply because it exposed Obama's true agenda, and revealed who he owed his allegiance to.

Read the following excerpt from TheAtlantic.com's post titled "A setback of his own." This excerpt mirrors everything I have been saying about Obama kissing up to terrorists from day 1! Some of you laughed it off because all you could see was the color of Obama's skin:

But the President, and his senior advisers, bear at least some responsibility for the grand gesture of promising to shut down Guantanamo Bay within a year well before the administration had begun to review the casebooks and intelligence reports about the 240 odd detainees in United States custody. The shrewdness of Obama's executive order on day two cannot be denied, nor can its targeted audience - European and Arab governments, and the broader world - be ignored in the current debate. Gitmo was a "rallying cry" for Al Qaeda - that line's for public consumption - and for anti-Americanism abroad, for European smugness, for exasperation with America by Moslems everywhere.

Obama -- who has never run a lemonade stand much less a government -- came into office with a full blown superiority complex, making dangerous ill-informed decisions that put this country's national security at risk. He ran roughshod over the Defense Dept., and the CIA without nary a working plan in place to implement his wacky agenda. A white president making the same parallel gov. moves Obama has made would have been run out of Washington by now.

Last night Rihanna was presented with a huge plaque to commemorate her 12 millions albums sold since her debut on Island/Def Jam Records by Chairman L.A. Reid. The honors took place during Def Jam's Spring Collection party at Stephen Weiss Studio in NYC. Reid also premiered the video for The Dream's "Walking On the Moon" ft. Kanye West. It's actually a pretty hot song. You can watch the video by clicking here.

Our girl looked so HAWT last night didn't she?

Legendary songwriter Babyface came out to give Rihanna her props!

Words you will never hear Beyonce say: "I feel better when I'm at my best." Leave it to Miss airhead to attribute her entire reason for being to her curves. Bey tells Self magazine:

"I'm not one of those people who doesn't have to work at it, I can't eat what I want, and I can't not go to the gym.

"I'm trying to do as much cardio as I can, so if I have a really long day of dancing [in rehearsals], then I'll run maybe three miles. If not, then I'll run 6.

"I'll put on a song that I really like and do [biceps curls with] 5-pound weights [for] the whole song and just try to burn out,"

Bish, stop lying. The paparazzi follows your every move and we have never seen any pictures of you anywhere near a gym!

Here's how Bey covers up for the fact that she has never been spotted going into a gym:

"To me, sexier [is] when it doesn't look like you go to the gym. If you look like you've been spending a lot of time in the gym, then it just looks like you spend a lot of time in the gym."

DUH! Really, Bey? It doesn't look like you spend time in the gym because you don't! Just come clean and admit that you're ever changing curves are courtesy of butt and hip pads.

In this interview with Jamie Foster Brown, publisher of Sister2Sister magazine, Keyshia Cole says she probably won't approve of her mother and sister starring in their own show. Let's hope she means it.

As you know, Frankie & Neffe are set to star in a spin off from Keyshia's well-received "Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is" reality show on BET.

Some of you are too young to remember the blaxploitation flicks from the 60s and 70s that portrayed black people in a stereotypical light as mostly pimps, whores, heroin addicts, etc.

We are headed down that road again thanks to the popularity of Bravo's Real Hot Mess of Atlanta and this new show featuring Keyshia's kin. We already know these shows will be chock full of scripted fights and buffoonery, and we hope Keyshia will put a stop to Neffe & Frankie's show and bring some dignity back to urban TV.

By the way, I am really impressed by Keyshia's mature new look and attitude. She is really doing it, and she is a great role model for young ladies in our community!

Her name is Dawn Ostroff, and she is President of Entertainment for the CW Network. Apparently Ostroff knows a thing or two about quality because she rid the CW network of two shows that never really should have seen the light of day: The Game and Eve.

Complain if you must, but it really is sad that we as a black community always tend to settle for less than the very best for ourselves.

Now the challenge is on for an urban production company to pitch a quality black TV show to the networks that we can all watch with pride and without cringing.

Thank God for syndication, TV Land and YouTube where we can watch reruns of Girlfriends, Half & Half, Martin, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Family Matters, Moesha, Good Times, etc.

I heard that Beyonce got Jay Z on the phone and chewed him out shortly after stories began circulating on the blogs about him partying stateside with his ex-roommate Larry Johnson like he was single again while she was off touring in Europe.

They say Jay Z didn't waste any time packing his Viagra and an overnight bag and rushing to Beyonce's side in Barcelona, Spain. His plan is to take in the sights in Barcelona with Bey while making sure the paparazzi trail along to get all their shots so he can get back to the states and begin his tour.

I LOVE that vest Bey is wearing. I wonder who she borrowed it from? Certainly someone with style and impeccable taste. I tried to buy a vest like that one last month but it was sold out everywhere.

By the way, I hear that once Jay Z saw Ciara's dismal CD sales, he cut half of her dates on his upcoming tour. That's what I heard but please don't quote me on that.
