Producer/rap artist Missy Elliott hasn't been on the scene in a minute. But she stepped out last night to attend the How You Rock It 3 party at M2 Ultra Lounge last night in NYC with Mona Scott (Violator mgt.), left, and Sylvia Rhone (Exec. VP of Universal Records), right. Missy's makeup is on point! I'm not sure if that's her lacefront cascading down her back or someone else's weave behind her. Photos: Wireimage/Getty
Rapper Soulja Boy Tellem also attended the party at M2 Lounge in NYC last night. I was talking to an industry vet yesterday who told me that rappers no longer care that we know they're bling is fake. He said they hold it up in pictures anyway. Here is Exhibit A. Photo: Wireimage/Getty
Former child star Tatyana Ali (Fresh Prince of Bel Air) was spotted out & about shopping in Beverly Hills today. Don't you love it when young ladies (under 30) dress with such style and grace? She knows that a woman doesn't have to take it all off or show their wares to get a man's attention. Photos: Splash News Online
Hunky singer Seal was spotted shopping for camera equipment at Samy's Camera store in L.A. today. I'm perspiring just looking at him. Photo: INF DAILY
Remember last week I told you about Barack Hussein Obama flip flopping on releasing torture photos and reversing his decision to close Gitmo? Well, now it turns out that he did so only because he found out his own party (the Democrats) were about to flip on him.
Apparently, Obama is one of those cats who thinks everyone will fall in line and have his back no matter what ignorant decision he makes -- even if that decision impacts negatively on them. That feeling of superiority in the face of failure is one of the classic hallmarks of a narcissist by the way.
The U.S. Senate today voted overwhelmingly to block funding to shut down the detainee center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, dealing another blow to one of President Obama's signature national security issues.
In a 90-6 vote, the Senate followed in the footsteps of the House of Representatives and passed an amendment deleting $80 million in funds from a war funding bill earmarked to close the Guantanamo Bay prison.
Republicans have been raising alarm bells for weeks about the prospect of Obama's planned Guantanamo closure.
Where will the detainees go, they've asked over and over. Will they be tried in the United States? And will former detainees, if cleared of the charges against them, be walking the U.S. streets?
Democrats have answered by rejecting Obama's request for money to start the base closure. Read more...
Shouldn't this be what's her name posing with 50 Cent instead of Oprah's significant other, Gayle King? I already know the answer to this question, but what kind of woman would date a man who totally ignores her in public -- even when they're at the same events? And why would this same woman continue to claim a man who refuses to claim her? Photos: Wireimage/Getty
Don't you wish you could tell actress/rocker Jada Pinkett-Smith to have some french fries and a shake? Jada appears to be wasting away before our very eyes. I could say more, but I won't out of respect for her. Photos: Wireimage/Getty
I spend quite a bit of my time on forums that cater to caucasian women. And what I've noticed is they harbor the same unhealthy hostility for Hugh Jackman's wife Deborra-Lee Furness that some of you have for Tiny. If you think Tiny gets it bad, you should see the nasty things they say about Deborra, who is a few years older than Hugh. It's a good thing that both Hugh and T.I. are good men who realize that most of the women who disrespect their women also don't think very much about themselves and could never lift a candle to Deborra or Tiny.
Rumor has it that CW has canceled "The Game." I can't say that I blame them.
Sorry y'all. I realize some of you are loyal fans of that show but it lost its magic once the budget was cut. The Game was worth watching in its first season. But this past season was simply the worst. Yes, I'm basing that assessment off of the one episode that I saw. But it's routine for investors to decide whether to invest their money in a series based on one episode called a pilot or test episode.
That one show I saw was horrible. The acting was atrocious and the show moved at the pace of a turtle. When two of the female characters started fighting over an obivously gay man, I knew that show was toast.
How do rumors get started, they're started by the jealous people, and
They get mad seein' somethin' they had that somebody else is holdin'
According to Allhiphop.com, T.I. will do that year (or a little more than half of it) in a minimum security prison in Arkansas. I keep telling y'all to stop believing these stupid rumors you read on these blogs.
When The Associated Press reported on Sunday that T.I. — due to report to the Forrest City low-security federal prison in Little Rock, Arkansas, on May 26 — had been given credit for 305 days of home detention, "so his stay at Forrest City prison will likely be only two months," the news agency may have misread the sentencing report. The story has since spread on the Internet, but according to Charysse Alexander, a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Georgia, it is not accurate.
According to Alexander, the rapper was indeed given credit for the 305 days of home confinement he served while awaiting trial in the case, but that has nothing to do with his prison sentence. [link]
Yankees pitcher Alex Rodriguez returned his daughter Natasha to her mom Cynthia after their visitation yesterday in NYC. A-Rod and Cynthia separated after she learned he was sacking 50-year-old Madonna. Isn't a man spending quality time with his daughter a beautiful thing! All you see in the malls here in Atlanta are men shopping solo with their daughters as more and more women turn to other women for sexual gratification. Yeah, it's a mess here in Atlanta, chile. If you're planning on moving here, you have been warned. Photos: INF DAILY
X-Men Wolverines actor Hugh Jackman was spotted strolling with his biracial adopted son Oscar yesterday in NYC. Photo: INF DAILY
The day before that Hugh spent time with both of his adopted kids, Oscar and Ava Eliot. Aren't they cute? Makes me want to run out and adopt a couple of kids for myself. Photo: Wireimage/Getty
*Yawwwn* My bad, it's early in the morning and I haven't had my shot of espresso yet. Anyway, former American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and British chanteuse Estelle attended BMI's 57th Annual Pop Awards held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills last night. Not sure if they won anything.
R&B crooner Anthony Hamilton and Estelle displayed their best prison poses at BMI's 57th Annual Pop Awards held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills last night. Aren't they crute?
Super producer Polow Da Don didn't look too thrilled to win a BMI award last night. Congrats to him!
Up-and-coming singer Steph Jones was flanked by two lovelies Kiely Williams (Cheetah Girls, 3LW), left, and Sabrina Bryan at the BMI Awards last night.
Playwright/director Tyler Perry was cheesing hard while posing with actor Will Smith at the 2009 Turner Upfront at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC last night. They say Will Smith won't star in any of Perry's films because he already has enough problems with those persistent down low rumors.
Rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs attended Tiger Woods' Tiger Jam 2009 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Saturday (5/16) in Las Vegas.
Now watch the conspiracy theorists among my readers start emailing me about Diddy and Tiger's secret Masonic handshake which looks like a typical ordinary handshake to me. But what do I know.
Rapper Fabolous on the set of his video for "Loso's Way" in NYC on Monday.
Producer/singer Ryan Leslie, aka Drake II, visited the video set of Fabolous' "Loso's Way" on Monday in NYC.
I laughed my azz off last night when a close industry friend asked me if DJ Unique was the same one who married Talib Kweli, lol! She screamed, "OMG! THAT'S A MAN?," when I told her that DJ Unique was a Metrosexual male, and that it was DJ Eque who married Talib Kweli. (I'm still laughing!!)
I was listening to my R&B survival kit in the car yesterday and I realized I haven't posted a throwback video in a minute. This is one of my favorite Jodeci cuts. You old heads will remember when we used to do the slow drag to this.
