Say it isn't so! Shawnna doesn't come off as the desperate type who would allow a man to disrespect her. But I could be wrong.

From Myra Panache:

This rapper was only associated with scandal once. Other than that, you really don’t hear much about his life away from his career. He’s also popular in another field.

Friends are complaining behind his back that he’s gone Hollywood. His peers say: “Unless you have a new film out or a hit record out, he doesn’t want to have anything to do with you. He’s all about your current status."

What few people know, a little known female rapper (on the come up) affiliated with his crew is allegedly being pimped out! He’s her pimp despite his non-pimpish image. He breaks her abusive boyfriend off to look the other way.

The boyfriend is so controlling, when she’s not in the studio or turning tricks, he isolates her from her family. According to sources, he told her, "if your album ever gets released, don’t expect to go on tour to promote it. You’re not getting away from me that easily."

Who is the status conscious rapper?

Hint: He's not New York based.

It's beginning to look more and more like a conspiracist's dream. According to online reports, the Obama administration is steadfastly refusing to release those Air Force 1 file photos that will end up costing Americans over $300,000.

The $328,835 snapshots of an Air Force One backup plane buzzing lower Manhattan last week will not be shown to the public, the White House said yesterday.

"We have no plans to release them," an aide to President Obama told The Post, refusing to comment further.

The sole purpose of the secret photo-op, which sent thousands of New Yorkers running for cover, was to take new publicity shots of the presidential jet over the city. READ MORE...

Now you know that makes no sense, right? This is the same president who was gung ho about jeopardizing the national security of this country by releasing sensitive CIA documents and photos of terrorists being interrogated. But he classifies secret file photos of an airliner scaring the crap out of New Yorkers?

Does anyone still believe the file photos story? Who was the photographer snapping the photos? And why didn't they buzz the Pentagon with Air Force 1 right there in DC instead of flying all the way to New York? Why wasn't the mayor of New York alerted ahead of time that the president's jet would be buzzing NY? You'd think the mayor would be the first person they called to give the heads up.

We'd better start asking questions now rather than later. Obama is up to something and it ain't all good.

Celebrity stylist (ha ha haaaa) June Ambrose attended the "If You Give A Mom A Martini..." Book Launch at the Plaza hotel in NYC on Monday. June is known around the industry as a WWA -- Woman With Attitude.

This has to be every woman's worst nightmare -- seeing industry bicycle Gabrielle Union posing in a photo with their men. The guy, by the way, is Deleon Tequila Founder and CEO Brent Hocking. They bumped into each other last night at the Deleon Tequila launch party at Chateau Marmont's Bar Marmont in Hollywood.

So Rihanna is into the Goth/Punk look now? You know, it seems that Chris Brown went upside Rihanna's head one too many times, and now she can't get her mind right. It's almost as if a different woman is occupying Rihanna's body in the last couple of months.

I don't like this new change in Rihanna not one bit. The streaks in her hair need to go asap! What happened to the trend-setting style icon who would never walk out her front door looking a mess like this?

Her unique style is the one thing that kept her a step ahead of the Beyonce's and Ashanti's because Rihanna can't sing. She might as well start making funeral arrangements for her career if she keeps this madness up.

Rap artist Rasheda, left, and birthday girl Diamond, who celebrated her 21st birthday at Velvet Room this past Sunday.

I heard from an industry insider that the friends who were supposed to come out and support Diamond for her 21st birthday at Velvet Room this Sunday decided to back out at the last minute because, with the exception of Monica who had to attend a family function out of state, they were all feeling some kind of way about not getting paid. So instead of coming out to support -- as they originally agreed to do, they chose to sit at home.

The sad part is all of these artists will eventually need promo and PR for their albums, TV shows, etc. The party ended up being great anyway without them because Rasheda, Swizz Beatz, Gucci Mane, Polow Da Don, Lil Scrappy, Drake, Toya all came through and showed Diamond love.

Sandra,

First let me start by saying that I am a very avid reader of your site. I feel that I keep coming back because I never know what I will find and I definitely like the sometimes investigative side that you put into blogging (which others do not), along with the various political perspectives that you take. I want you to know that I definately stopped drinking the kool-aid, but I beg to differ on a number of your conservative views although I find some thoughts refreshing and definately disgustingly hilarious that you faithfully watch Hannity's show. Anyway, I wrote this email to let you know that I feel that your post on Desiree Roger's was extremely disrespectful!!!!!! As Wendy Williams would say "LOOK DOWN!" lol, Im shocked and appalled that you would take it upon yourself to disrespect another black woman, who definitely has her shit together and label her as a "jump-off!" Where is your proof Sandra???!!!! Please I would loooooove to see it!!! As a black woman (like so many others) who continues to bust her ass to get ahead, and definitely not on my back or knees, but with my brain, I have to say that it is encouraging to see black women who have made it. SO, maybe you should think about that before you start throwing dirt, because we ALL reap what we sow!!!

Peace and Blessings,

Denee'

Nothing says LOVE more than seeing a man spending quality time with his baby. Not the two-legged kind -- the 4-legged kind that sits on dubs. On average, ballers spend more time and money on their rides than they do on any other prized possession.

While perusing the Internets this weekend looking for wheels to spruce up my Jetta, I came across a gallery of celebrities posing with their favorite rides outfitted by rim specialists, Lexani. None of the rims pictured cost less than $2,000.

Extravagant over expenditures notwithstanding, even I have to admit these ballers look sexy alongside their whips. I realize I haven't put up a Morning Wood post in a minute, and some of you are getting antsy to see one. So hopefully this post will suffice.

This morning I received an email from a registered user requesting that I reinstate Charles to the SR community. As some of you know, Charles has been banned twice. She asked if I had a 3 strikes rules, and the answer is no. But I have reinstated certain banned members in the past.

So, in the interest of fairness, I put this question to my registered users only: should I reinstate Charles?

The celebs were out in full force last night at the Staples Center in LA for the 1st game of the LA Lakers vs. Houston Rockets Semi-finals last night. Too bad LA lost, lol. Is old man Jay Z ready for fatherhood? Here he is pictured with a kid who may or may not be a family member. We know he isn't Julez because he's busy keeping his mom Solange out of trouble over in Europe.

Jay Z, left, greets Ron Artest of the Houston Rockets. This pic is giving off mad homoerotic vibes.

Lakers star Kobe Bryant, right, greets Sean COmbs, who always gives off homolicious vibes.

This photo of actor Mario putting his tongue all down the throat of his date at the Lakers vs. Rockets game would be perfect for the cover of an STD clinic brochure. Him and Derek Jeter sling D everywhere they go.

She can't sing worth a hoot, but Keri Hilson's style game is always on point. LOVE the bag and galoshes.

Singer Johnny Gill (New Edition) participated in the National Kidney Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic at the Lakeside Golf Club, Toluca Lake, California yesterday. Doesn't he look great for 43?

Actor Terry Crews showed off his hawt bod at the Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup's "The Winner's Circle" Gala Dinner in Beverly Hills over the weekend. No, there weren't any kids in attendance.

Here's a rare pic of actor/comedian Anthony Anderson and his gorgeous wife, Alvina. The couple have two children, a boy and a girl.

This year's Costume Institute Gala theme, "The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion" held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, was a major disappointment! Last year the ladies came with IT! Everyone looked stunning on the 2008 red carpet, from Victoria Beckham to Janet Jackson. Maybe it's the recession, but the gowns at this year's gala were yawn inspiring at best.

BEST DRESSED

I have to give it up for Miss Tyra Banks! The former supermodel was runway ready on the red carpet last night wearing a black gown and upswept hairdo. Her makeup was a bit overdone, but all in all, she was a spectacular beauty to behold!

Rihanna came in a distant second wearing this extremely weird looking Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 tuxedo suit with high water pants and puffy shoulders. Sorry y'all, I'm not feeling her style anymore. Rihanna ain't been right ever since Chris Brown went upside her head. That short cropped hairdo with the blond streaked highlights didn't do it for me. I could use stronger words to describe my disappointment in Rihanna, but I'm trying to be nice. The only thing that works for me is Rihanna's makeup, which is on point. And, is it just me or is Rihanna subconsciously -- or consciously channeling Michael Jackson's "Thriller" look?

Note to Rihanna: if you're going to rock the tuxedo pantsuit at an A-list affair, do it the way actress Lake Bell did: with understated elegance.


Speaking of understated elegance, ex-supermodel Iman was stunning in this shimmery satin gown


WORST DRESSED

Who else? Ciara took last prize in this horrid 'Night of the Living Dead' ensemble by Emilio Pucci that looks like the designer stitched it together at the last minute after running out of black material. As my friend would say, "no ma'am, put that back!"

Madonna, on the other hand, knew she was wrong for this ridiculous outfit complete with bunny ears. But still, she came in second to Ciara. I thought Madonna understood that it wasn't that kind of costume ball? Save that ish for Halloween, lady!

Oh, no ma'am, Kerry Washington... who did this to you? Nevermind. I forgot Marc Jacobs organized that mess last night. Kerry's dress is from the Louis Vuitton Spring 09 collection.

Jessica Alba came in a close third as Worst Dressed. Can you believe Michelle Obama's favorite designer Jason Wu designed this frock? I just know Jessica was joking when she paired this frock with black stockings and platform shoes. The top half of her strapless dress goes perfectly with the sequined skirt Bey wore in Paris the other day. Not a good look.

Victoria Beckham, who killed the competition last year wearing just a house coat, looked utterly ridiculous this year in a polka dotted Louis Vuitton mini dress with long train. Posh looks hotter sashaying through airports than she did last night. The shoes look like they belong on a horse. And, no, your monitor doesn't need adjusting. Posh's tan came straight out of a bottle. Why pay for tanning sessions when you can spray it on in minutes and be out the door?

Kanye West and Amber Rose look like they should be wearing each other's outfits. Why were they there anyway? Do they let just anybody come to these costume galas? Oh, I forgot, Marc Jacobs is responsible for that mess last night. No wonder the real stars stayed away.

Model Chanel Iman is too beautiful to let a dress wear her like this.

Songwriter Keri Hilson -- who really should stick to what she does best -- performed a live version of "Knock You Down" with Kanye West on Late Night With David Letterman last night. Her performance was subpar - like something you would see on amateur night at the Apollo. Would I be wrong if I said Keri sounds worse than Beyonce did on that fake audio tape of her singing on The Today Show? Sorry, Keri fans, but if you don't want the truth about your idols don't come to my blog.

Rapper Foxy Brown looked Hawt at AG Ent's Secret Society Thursdays party held at a private location in Atlanta last week. We're surprised to see Foxy looking so fabulous! Whatever she's doing she needs to keep it up because it's working for her!

I'm told that Foxy was in town working with Grand Hustle co-owner Jason Geter, who they say is coaching her in preparation for her upcoming VH1 reality series. Foxy, real name Inga Marchand, was released from Riker's Island prison back in April 2008 where she served time for violating her probation following a 2004 conviction on assault charges. Foxy has managed to stay out of trouble since then, and word is she might be signing to Grand Hustle -- but you didn't hear that from me!

Thanks to Prince Williams of ATLPICS.net for the exclusive pics!

Among the emails I received in response to my earlier post on the over-hyped rapper Drake, was one from a reader who points out that Drake could not be getting tapped from the back because he's tapping video vixen Bria Myles.

Maybe my reader has never heard of the term "bisexual" -- aka, 70% of the black male population in Atlanta? My reader apparently doesn't realize that DL industry men routinely use well-stacked chicks like Bria as a cover for their risque behavior with other men. Especially an up and coming rapper who wants to immediately dispel any and all rumors that he might be a card carrying member of the meatpackers club.

But if Drake isn't gay, I extend my sincerest and humblest apologies to him and the lovely Bria, who just might end up being the subject of an upcoming Morning Glory post.

Last week, Fox News refused to broadcast Barack Obama's prime time press conference live on its network channel, so Obama retaliated by refusing to take a question from Fox News White House correspondent Major Garrett (pictured above left).

I see no problem with Obama's actions. Everyone knows that Obama expects all media to defer to him in obedience and servitude. Those in the media who do not show deference to Obama don't get special favors in return.

Fox News White House correspondent Major Garrett has accused the White House of blackballing him during President Obama's press conference last week by not allowing him to pose a question. "That was retribution for the Fox network, broadcast network, running with its regularly scheduled programming instead of taking the White House press conference," he told the TVNewser website. (The Fox News cable network did carry it uninterrupted.) "I was warned that [the broadcast network's decision] might be considered as part of the overall consideration as to whether or not I'd be called on," Garrett added. He predicted that the other broadcast networks will eventually follow Fox's lead and stop interrupting their primetime programming once a month to televise presidential news conferences and ask themselves, "'Are we becoming a news organization or are we just becoming a megaphone for the White House?' ... I wouldn't be surprised if some of the other networks peel off following Fox's lead."

Rumors have abounded for years that celebrities hire bodyguards and train them as back up dancers so they will never be left unprotected onstage during concerts.

Over the weekend, we saw one of Britney's bodyguard/dancers -- a fine one too -- spring into action when a drunken male fan attempted to get up close and personal with Britney in Norwich, Connecticut.

Watch at the 2:17 mark as Britney, who was momentarily distracted, screams in terror as the fan, Kyle King, suddenly appears in front of her during her "Womanizer" number. An alert female bodyguard/dancer quickly checked him with a stiff forearm and pushed him offstage, while a male dancer assisted.

It's interesting to note that you don't hear Britney scream, which means she was lip syncing and her mic was tuned off during the number. Britney appeared to be a little shell shocked as a result of the brief encounter, but she quickly recovered and continued the show.

King was arrested and charged with breach of peace -- a misdemeanor. He was released on $250 cash bond. This story is all over the Internets. You would think a fan has never jumped onstage to dance with their idol before. The real story here is the fine bodyguard who handled her business! Can we get a little info on her?

Over the weekend, a Beyonce Stan posted this video from her show in Rotterdam The Netherlands, where she cussed out an engineer for not turning the stage lights out fast enough. Bey can be heard on the video firing the poor guy who likely has mouths to feed at home. The girl is brutal!

Maybe Bey's attitude has something to do with the fact that her hubby is alleged to have gone back to the arms of his former flame and roommate? Click here to see who it is.

I think I read somewhere something about Bey not being man enough to satisfy Jigga's healthy sexual appetite. But I could be wrong about the exact wording, so please don't quote me on that.

I bumped into the rapper Drake over the weekend while out & about in Atlanta. The fact that he was surrounded by a massive entourage of hard legs with thick necks didn't conceal his gay tendencies not one bit.

Naturally, me being as out of the loop as I am, I had NO clue who this Drake was. So I turned to someone on the fringes of the chaotic scene, who chided me for not knowing this dude was up next. "Miss Rose," he said. "Drake's the next R.Kelly. He's Lil Wayne's protege... he's..." -- All I needed to hear were the words "Lil Wayne's protege" and he was dismissed.

It figures that Drake is just another skeleton in the Hip Hop boneyard who achieved fame by following the same lame formula: get co-signed by the biggest name in the business and you're on top just like that with 15 minutes to spare.

A little background on 22-year-old Drake: he's a biracial, Jewish Canadian who grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth in a wealthy enclave of Canada. Not exactly the hardscrabble life that Hip Hop heads typically glorify. But of course his privileged past will be conveniently swept under the rug in light of his affiliation with Lil Wayne and other pillars of the Hip Hop community.

Drake got his start in show biz as an actor on the popular Canadian TV series Degrassi, where he played a disabled teen. Since 2006 he's been putting in work on mixtapes -- the last of which, So Far Gone -- made a little noise before being crowned "Mixtape of the Year." Drake is currently in the studio working on a full length album with Wayne, struggling R&B singer Trey Songz and old man Jay Z.

Drake's Internet presence is strong, but that presence apparently doesn't follow him offline. They say Drake's Atlanta concert sold out in 8 hours on Saturday. But only 500 tickets were sold, and only 200 bodies attended his Atlanta after party. Those figures aren't exactly major considering that the Velvet Room nightclub packs in 5 times that many on an average night.

If you had any doubt about Oscar winner Halle Berry being back on that stuff, let this shocking photo remove all doubt. An irate Halle swore and raged at the paparazzi outside a restaurant in LA over the weekend. Halle displays all the signs of a woman under the influence of a powdery substance -- mood swings, spontaneous angry outbursts, emaciated appearance, that dead behind the eyes look, dark bags under her eyes, dry mouth, etc. Hopefully she gets it together for her baby Nahla's sake. Nahla is such a cutie. Where's the daddy by the way?

IS actress Halle Berry pregnant again? It sure seems like it from the looks of her belly in this photo. I wonder how those blogs that regularly make up ish about supposedly pregnant celebs missed this one? LOVE the sandals.

Sean Combs' jail bait girlfriend, singer Cassie looks downright bored at the TAO fight after party. It seems that even Diddy's family are objecting to him dating such a immature young thing. Let's just say their whispers are getting too loud to keep it all in the family.

Troubled singer/producer Kanye West was spotted entering Bungalow 8 nightclub in NYC over the weekend. One of my readers emailed me on Friday to say she saw a line of Kanye sneaker aficionados snaking around a building in her neighborhood. She assumed they were they anxiously awaiting the release of his sneakers. But I told her she was mistaken because I was pretty positive those ugly NIKEs he's wearing were the same ones that debuted last month somewhere. It turned out that I was wrong and she was right. So what else is new?

I knew there was a reason I liked rap artist Maino so much. Apart from the fact that he's a true lyricist in every sense of the word, he's also a manly man who isn't afraid to get in touch with his feminine side onstage in front of a rowdy crowd.

Maino recently performed his hit "All The Above" at the White House nightclub in Hampton Bays, NY, where he broke down on stage after telling the crowd his best friend was shot in the back by cops and the kid may not ever walk again.

Even when dissolving into tears, Maino is more man than Bow Wow will ever be.

Barack Obama continues to exert his will and control over the liberal White House press corps by ordering them to stand at attention when he enters the press room. And like the lap dogs they all are, they obediently comply. George Bush never made such preposterous demands on the press corps. But then he didn't refer to himself as "The One" either. Next, Obama will be ordering the press corps to bow down to him.

Fashion icon Victoria Bekcham must have a thing for seeing herself in uniform. Posh was spotted marching through LAX airport yesterday dressed like a cop in Christian Louboutin pumps (or an airline pilot, take your pick). We've seen this look on Posh before, and only she can pull it off. So please don't try it at home.

Remember when Rihanna used to look this hawt strolling through airports on her way to exotic ports of call around the world? Then she started feeling herself and acting badly around the paparazzi until she caught a beat down from woman beater Chris Brown. Now Rihanna is just a shell of her former beautiful self. Sadly, she's damaged goods now. But we can still reminisce.

To the media savvy among us, Desiree Rogers has never been considered anything less than a brilliant power player. Here's a woman who is crafty and cunning enough to be the (alleged) jump off to the most powerful man in the country -- and no one bats an eye.

Have you ever seen a jump off play her position so perfectly? And why shouldn't she parlay her prominent position into a more lucrative one? Especially now that it's clear Barack Obama won't be leaving his wife anytime soon for her. Desiree may as well start stacking her chips since she's not getting any younger.

Her first power move since making herself comfortable in Michelle Obama's house was to ditch her corny sounding "social secretary" title for one with a more international flava: "Cultural liaison."

This month, Ms. Rogers appears on the covers of both Wall Street Journal and Women's Wear Daily magazines looking FAH-bulous! She's quite the Diva. With all this exposure she's been getting lately, you would think she was the First Lady, but isn't that the whole point?

Anyway, Gawker.com, which refers to the Second Lady as "Socialite-in-chief" -- goes in on Desiree for having the audacity to expand her man Barack's brand. Yes, I know: they have PR people to do that. But in addition to wealth assessment and management, PR is listed among a good jump off's specialties.

I'm sure you have all read or heard about Bow Wow's idiotic and inflammatory homophobic statements regarding a gay barber. If you didn't, click here. Well, Shad posted a response video on YouTube after a BET blogger put him on blast and referred to him as homophobic. That loud flushing noise Bow Wow heard after BET posted that blog was his career spiraling rapidly down the proverbial toilet.

In what has to be one of the most ill-advised videos ever posted by a pubic figure on the Internet, Bow Wow lies about his homophobic statements and offers up sad excuses as to how his words were misconstrued in the first place (snitches, etc.) The video was quickly removed from YouTube -- probably by Bow Wow's mo-manager who obviously has no control (parental or otherwise) over him.

But aside from his manipulative lying, watch his body language. His effeminate mannerisms and gestures, such as constantly twitching one shoulder, rolling his head, and touching his face with one finger, give some insight into Bow Wow's inner turmoil and struggle with his repressed homosexuality. You can say a lot of things about Bow Wow, but "manly" isn't one of them.

According to various online reports, Barbadian beauty Rihanna has officially moved on with her life after dumping woman beater Chris Brown. The two singers haven't been seen in each other's company in a long while, and word is Rihanna was finally forced to decide between her career and him.

But Rihanna hasn't exactly been chillin' during their separation. She's been recently spotted on romantic vacations with a bevy of beautiful men -- and women such as her BFF Katy Perry, leading to speculation that she's bi-curious (we wish). Rihanna's family has revealed that she is re-kindling her romance with a hawt dark chocolate Barbadian hunk named Negus Sealy, 24 (seen pictured above in an old stock photo).

A friend revealed: "Negus was a shoulder to cry on. He's a really smart guy-clever, good-looking, very cool. All the girls adore him and call him the Love God! He and Rihanna were seeing each other before she hit the big time."

Now, after falling back in love with Negus, 21-year-old Rihanna is telling friends and family that Brown, 19, is definitely "history". Our source added: "Rihanna and Negus both realised there was still a strong sexual attraction between them and became inseparable. Whenever Rihanna went to the beach or out partying, Negus was always there.

"They were very careful not to be seen too closely together though as they're trying to keep their relationship secret."

But one of Rihanna's relatives, who asked not to be named, confirmed: "The family are delighted about her seeing Negus again." READ MORE...

Can you guess which one of these doesn't belong here?

One of my favorite Sesame Street songs goes:

    One of these things is not like the others,
    One of these things just doesn't belong,
    Can you tell which thing is not like the others
    By the time I finish my song?

Oh, come on, don't front like you don't still watch Sesame Street. You have kids don't you? Anyway, Fashion Critic posted these photos of Hollywood starlets posing in the same 3.1 Phillip Lim winding zipper ruffle dress that Solange wore to some event. Poor thang sticks out like a sore thumb. Everyone can't wear Couture and make it work.

Normally I don't do this, but since I posted James T. Turner's photo on my blog earlier (with Fantasia), I figured I could do him one small favor.

Hey sandra whats going on....I'm the guy in the picture with fantasia...i was wondering did someone say Fantasia and I were beefing or something? If so, it's not true at all... we took that picture while she was in Baton Rouge for a concert... I'm not sure where that came from though lol... But you can help me out... I'm vying to be the next face of Sean John... I'm currently on the 3rd page of www.seanjohn.com/contest I keep jumping between page 3 and page 2. My name is James on there.... Currently on page 3. Thanks so much!!
