It sure took long enough: the White House has finally condemned the fatal beating of 16-year-old honor student Derrion Albert last week.

As you know, Barack Obama is flying to Copenhagen tomorrow where he will join Oprah, Michelle Obama and a delegation from Chicago in a bid to bring the 2016 Summer Olympics to Chicago, as if that city doesn't have enough problems.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs on Wednesday said the video of teens viciously kicking and striking another teen with splintered railroad ties is among the most shocking anyone can see. He told reporters they should expect an announcement on an administration response to the "heinous crime" soon.

Gibbs says, though, that government cannot regulate what's in people's hearts. He says the White House believes such crimes call for community involvement. Source

US magazine ran with a ridiuclous cover story claiming pop singer Justin Timberlake dumped his girlfriend Jessica Biel for Rihanna. But no one I know fell for that story.

Paparazzi pics of Justin and Jessica strolling hand-in-hand last night in Northern Cali hit the Internet today totally debunking the silly rumors.

Obviously someone pulled one over on US magazine's editors (or maybe they made the whole thing up like certain blogs do for hits). The magazine industry is in a slump right now so expect to see more fabricated stories in the near future.

At any rate, I can't wait to see more pics of Ri Ri and her boo Melissa walking hand-in-hand again. They make such a cute couple!

In a recent radio interview, legendary crooner Andy Williams spoke of his contempt for Barack Obama and his (failed) attempts to socialize this country.

"Don't like him at all," he said, "I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very Left-wing," he said, adding, "Obama is following Marxist theory. He's taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail." Source

Isn't it ironic that Obama has done more for the Muslim terrorist detainees at Gitmo than he's done for Americans?

Good for them:

TMZ has learned The Ludacris Foundation has partnered up with Home Depot and Sam's Club to help victims of the Atlanta floods -- which City Hall officials say caused $61 million in damages and wrecked nearly 500 homes.

We spoke to a rep for the foundation, who told us Luda and T.I. are donating $10,000 each to the cause.

The Foundation's rep told us they are planning a large food bank and a gift card giveaway that could happen as soon as Friday.

Last night Chicago police arrested residents who tore down an Olympic 2016 banner.

Score another one for the me-president. Barack Obama will fly into Copenhagen tomorrow to make a pitch to bring the Olympic games to Chicago in 2016. Obama makes his pitch despite the fact that unemployment in his political hometown is in the double digits and crime is at an all time high. So far there is no word from Obama about the death of Derrion Albert, 16, who was beaten to death last week as he walked home from school.

More children died violent deaths in Chicago this year than in any other city in America.

But all Obama cares about is bringing the Olympics to a city where basic services like water, sanitation and power often don't work. He doesn't care about the children or the residents who don't want the Olympics in their city.

Some residents are so concerned about the burden that the 2016 Olympics will place on the city's budget that they created a web page NotChicago.com. The sole mission of the website is to support the other cities that are vying for the Olympic games "because we would very much prefer that the Olympics be held somewhere other than Chicago -- anywhere but Chicago."

If Chicago does win the bid there will be plenty of police and National guards on hand to protect the International visitors. That's more than they are willing to do for their own residents.

This movie gives a whole new meaning to Two Girls One Cup. Yuck. According to Shock 'Til You Drop:

Two American girls are on a road trip through Europe. In Germany they end up with a broken car in the woods. They search for help and find an isolated villa. The next day they awake to find themselves trapped in a terrifying make shift basement hospital along with a Japanese man. A German man identifies himself as a retired surgeon specialized in separating Siamese twins. However his three "patients" are not about to be separated, but joined together in an horrific operation. He plans to be the first person to connect people via their gastric system (yay, ass-to-mouth fusion!), in doing so bringing to life his sick lifetime fantasy "the human centipede".

So in other words, the lunatic sutures their faces to the other person's rectum and urinary tract so when one goes, they all go in each other's... you get the picture. I'm assuming the head centipede will be on a clear liquid diet since the two pulling up the rear (so to speak) would be dead from dehydration in a matter of days. Yuck.

Actress/singer Jennifer Hudson was off to see the wizard yesterday at a Netflix outdoor concert and movie screening in Central Park, NY.

Chocolaty goodness Derek Luke was a guest on BET's 106 & Park yesterday.

Former child star Marques Houston dropped a new CD yesterday (I didn't know that either until someone told me). Anyway, the disc is available on Amazon.com since I don't think he's signed to a label anymore. Though I could be wrong about that. I just don't have the time to research these things. How U Doin' Marques? Awwwriiight!

The garbage man cometh. Convicted felon Chris Brown took time out of his busy schedule keeping downtown Richmond, Virginia trash-free to drop a piece of trash on us. It's his new track produced by Toucan Sam, er, Swizz Beatz and featuring Lil Wayne titled "I Can Transform Ya."

I think this track is a reject from the Transfromers movie soundtrack. The movie producers probably heard this sht and said 'no thanks.'

Oh, well, Chris Brown can get back to picking up trash on the highway. He'll find his recording career in the dumpster with the rest of the garbage.

Hopefully OK! magazine can recoup the $300,000 they lost, er, spent on this cover. Lol, they had to put Kim Kardashian on the cover if they had any hope of selling more than 100 magazines.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s publicity stunt wedding has finally reached its climax.

After shelling out $300 000, the upcoming issue of OK! mag offers all the details on the ceremony, from interviews with bridesmaids/sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian to dish on the wedding dress, ring and cake.

The issue — which strangely also features Kim and Khloe — hits shelves tomorrow. The wedding production airs on November 8 on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. (Source)

Comments Off on FanMAIL: We don’t need fake a** rappers like Nas stepping up to the plate

A few of you emailed me today asking me to post some random letter written by the rapper Nas whose entire career is based on gimmicks and sensationalism.

Here's a man (and I use the term loosely) whose violent lyrics helped contribute to the environment that bred the wild children who opened up another child's head with sticks and laughed while doing it.

And now that his rap career is just about washed up, his sorry azz writes a letter and we're all supposed to forget that this man used a derogatory term to help sell albums.

Loyal reader Shalay writes:

You know normally I don't see eye to eye with you but on Nas what you said was dead right. How can you talk about fighting the wrong war but used the N word as a gimick to shine light on your failing career? We don't need fake ass rappers stepping up the the plate we need PARENTS stepping up to the plate and taking control of their home.

Rihanna and her "assistant" Melissa have finally taken their lesbun relationship public! And not a moment too soon! People were beginning to think I was crazy for even suggesting that they were freakin' each other.

While vacationing overseas, the two lovebirds hugged and kissed in public and behaved like a couple of honeymooners.

They look so cute together.

Updated:

I just got off the phone with a source inside Rihanna's camp who told me confidentially that... [hidepost]Rihanna and Melissa always wanted to make their relationship public but her management, Jigga and her label were afraid it would hurt her career. So they manufactured a fake relationship with Chris Brown (only his dumb azz didn't know he was being used until later on).

At first Rihanna didn't like him at all, but she played along with the sham relationship to appease her management. Then a crazy thing happened: she started liking the fool for real! :confused:

That's when things really got complicated with Melissa. My source says Cb never liked Melissa from the jump and he objected to RiRi and Mel being so close. He tried to get Ri Ri away from Mel but RiRi wasn't having it. That's why he lashed out at her (out of frustration) because he knew Melissa was Rihanna's one true love.

Mel felt like she was the third wheel in that relationship so RiRi got Mel's birthdate tatted on her body to show her how much she loved her. Chris went ballistic 'cause his homies were already teasing him about Rihanna and Mel's relationship. Rihanna was caught between the two of them and it was affecting her career. Chris hated how Rihanna put Mel before him. That's why Chris punched and bit Rihanna when she called Mel from the Lambo that fateful night to tell Mel to have the police waiting.

None of this is confirmed so please don't quote me.[/hidepost]

I'm sorry, but Whoopi Goldberg is a moron. Today, she insulted the intelligence of good people everywhere by suggesting that what director Roman Polanski did to a 13-year-old girl 30 years ago "wasn't rape-rape." What the F is rape-rape?

The girl was 13-years-old and being plied with drugs and alcohol by a grown man. But Whoopi suggests that the sex between the child and the 46-year-old Polanski was consensual.

Whoopi argues the point that the world doesn't share our uncompromising views on child molestation and therefore WE are behind the times.

Roman Polanski was arrested in Switzerland last week and is awaiting extradition. There is no statute of limitations on child molestation charges.

Add R&B singer Lloyd's name to the growing list of celebs who have fallen out with pseudo singer Ciara.

Lloyd is the latest in a long line of Ciara's peers who either hate on her publicly or diss her behind closed doors.

Even execs at her own label hate working with the drama queen whose bitch fits are legendary. Her antics got her kicked off the Britney Spears tour, and top studio engineers refuse to work with her.

But very few industry types are honest enough to come right out and say they don't like working with her.

Lloyd tells Hip Hop Weekly that he cut ties with the tramp "because he's convinced finding fame has changed her for the worst." Lloyd, who met Ciara when they were teenagers in Atlanta, said "her ego has gotten the better of her."

"I don't f**k with Hollywood b*tches and she's like one of the chicks that's just changed along the way with the fame and the money and all of that.

"I don't really get down with her anymore on some real sh*t. The truth hurts, but it will set you free. But I wish her all the best."

Comments Off on Stop emailing me about Nas

I'm not interested in anything Nas has to say. So spare me with the "Nas is so positive" emails. He wasn't so positive when he used the word "N*gger" as a marketing tool to sell his album.

And now that Hip Hop really is dead, I see he's abandoned that gimmick. My, how quickly we forget.

After butting heads with the show's producers over unauthorized endorsement placements, TLC has decided to take Jon Gosselin off Jon & Kate Plus 8.

The show will focus on Kate as a single mother of twins girls and quintuplets in Kate plus 8.

I've only seen one episode of the show (just to see what the hype was about) and Jon comes across as an overbearing jerk who would much rather be chasing skirts than minding his own kids.

Moments after TLC announced the news that the show was moving on without him, Jon's attorney submitted paperwork to a Pennsylvania court requesting a delay in his divorce proceedings. The reasons are obvious: 1. Jon loses any say so over his family's appearance on the show if the divorce goes through, and 2. Jon doesn't have a job.

According to USA Today, Jon's attorneys submitted this statement to a Pennsylvania court approved arbitrator asking for a delay:

“Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That’s why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family — not destroy it.”

I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon.”

These are not my words, but I can relate. I found this post on AOL Black Voices Entertainment board. You may not agree with the message because your sons wear their pants saggin' and they immerse themselves in that criminal culture called Hip Hop. Or they idolize these thug rappers, who but for the grace of God would be behind bars or dead themselves.

But the reality is that the innocence of youth has been rudely snatched away by the violent and destructive imagery of Hip Hop despite what music mogul Russell Simmons and others who benefit from Hip Hop say.

The death of Derrion Albert..more fruit from the tree of thug worship.

Jay Z, a professed former crack dealer was on Oprah last week. Snoop Dogg is a cultural icon. Tupac is an iconic figure. Need I mention, 50 Cent, the Game, and the whole plethora of drug dealers, rapists, burglars, and other felons that black America worships.

Young black boys want to be them…
Old black men want to reclaim their youth by sagging by them…
Young black women, educated and non educated, want to F them and have babies by them..
Older black women consider them to be “real men”

Thug worship.

Until black America quits worshipping thugs, this violence will not end.

Some of us are still reeling from the images of school children killing one of their own in Chicago last week. 16-year-old Derrion Albert died from brain injuries caused by blunt force trauma to the head after being jumped by other students from his high school. Contrary to numerous erroneous media reports, there was no gang activity involved.

The confusion stems from civilized adults trying to make sense of uncivilized behavior.

There's a classic book written in the 1950's called "Lord of the Flies" about a group of British boys stranded on a deserted island in the Atlantic ocean following a plane crash. The adults didn't survive the crash so the children were left to govern themselves. Eventually, in the absence of adult supervision and with no social rules to conform to, they turn on each other like savages.

In this video found on What About Our Daughter's blog, Central City High School Principal Ras Baraka tried to make sense of an off-campus shooting involving a high school student from his Newark, New Jersey school.

"This is not normal!," he tells an audience of the injured student's peers.

"You're living this life like it's normal. This is abnormal to talk about your friends dying, to not be able to walk home safely from school... this is not normal to be wearing t-shirts that say 'Rest in Peace', to be writing 'Rest in Peace' on the wall. This is not normal! Nobody else's children do this!

Sadly, he's right. Only in the black community are our children killing each other off at alarming rates. What's wrong with our people?

At the end of the book "Lord of the Flies," the children who have already killed two of their own, are in the process of killing a third boy when a naval officer lands on the island, interrupting them. The naval officer's ship was attracted to the island by a fire the kids had set.

The officer expressed surprise at the children's behavior, telling them he expected better from them. The officer who was unaware of the two murdered boys assumed the children were playing a game.

His confusion stemmed from a civilized mind trying to make sense of uncivilized behavior.

I did a double take when I saw this magazine cover on another blog. I had to make sure that I was seeing the words "Life & Stye" instead of "OK! magazine", which reportedly shelled out $300,000 in cold cash to Khloe Kardashian and her mama for the exclusive rights to Khloe and Lamar Odom's wedding.

Yet there she is laughing it up on the cover of Life & Style magazine in her white Vera Wang wedding dress -- and OK! magazine's editors are not amused!

Not only did Life & Style get the wedding dress money shot, but so did X17online.com's paparazzi as well as numerous helicopter bound paparazzi in the skies above the Beverly Hills mansion where Khloe's quickie marriage to NBA star Lamar Odom took place on Sunday.

According to ContactMusic, the magazine bosses are furious at Khloe for allowing her wedding to turn into a 3-ring media circus. But that's what media whores DO, and OK! magazine should have already known that!

No doubt, the Kardashians made a few side deals in addition to the one they had with OK! mag. At this point, Khloe Kardashian needs to stack as much loot as she can because her sister Kim Kardashian -- the other media whore in the family -- wants her spotlight back.

In the meantime, OK! mag is out $300,000 and clear pictures of Khloe in her wedding dress are all over the Internets.

A guest at the wedding told OK! mag, "There were so many helicopters overhead, you couldn't hear the vows. The Kardashian family had assured OK! the ceremony would be at a secluded location, but in the end it was a circus."

Speaking of magazine covers, First Lady Michelle O covers Prevention magazine this month. Inside she says, "Life really gets good when you're 40 or 50." I bet she'll sing a different tune when she starts going through menopause!

Actress Essence Atkins joins a slew of Hollywood celebrities who tied the knot this weekend. Essence met her husband Jaime Mendez on the Internet dating site Match.com. The two tied the knot at the Ambassador Mansion and Gardens in Pasadena, California on Saturday.

Essence says his rugged good looks in his profile pic is what drew her to him. "I wrote him a quick little note that I had read his profile, and then I signed off, Happy SAD Day – that's Single Awareness Day," says Essence, 37, Essence tells People.com.

Now see, all this time I thought she was a lesbun. How desperate do you have to be to look for a husband on the Internet? Essence always did come across as a LSLH version of a dumb blond. Good look to both of them.

It must be nice to have a filthy rich daddy like Baby of Cash Money who gives you million-dollar gifts on your birthday.

Last year for his 26th birthday, Baby gave his "son" Weezy a suitcase stuffed with a million in cash. This year Lil Wayne received a custom jewel encrusted watch worth $1 million from his pops!

Baby, who gets a nice percentage of Weezy's music sales, can afford to give a little sumthin back! Wayne celebrated his 27th birthday in a Miami hotel room with a few family and friends over the weekend.


Even his birthday cake was diamond studded!

According to the Chicago Tribune, 3 teens have been charged in the brutal beating death of 16-year-old honor roll student Derrion Albert as he walked home from school through the Roseland neighborhood of far South Side Chicago last Thursday (9/24).

The three teens charged with first-degree murder are Silvanus Shannon, 19, Eugene Riley, 18, and Eric Carson, 16, according to the Cook County state's attorney's office. All 3 will be tried as adults.

The three were caught on video wielding 2-by-4 wooden boards which they used to strike Albert repeatedly about the head causing massive head injuries during a melee involving students from Fenger Academy High School. Albert was pronounced dead three hours later at a local hospital.

Four others are being questioned in the assault. Joe Walker, Albert's grandfather who helped raise him from a baby, said police expect to arrest 6 or 7 people in the case.

Beyonce showed out something terrible in Singapore this past weekend. She must have been PMSing, according to ContactMusic, which said Beyonce had A-list actress Lindsay Lohan tossed out of her own dressing room so she could have it.

And she also made the poor stage hands and crew sweat it out in 90 degree temps backstage because Bey's entourage commandeered the only fans for her. What an evil heifer.

Beyonce Knowles reportedly had Lindsay Lohan thrown out of her own dressing room because the singer wanted it for herself.

The former Destiny's Child star was performing at the F1 Rocks concert in Singapore over the weekend and had ordered her entourage to get her the largest dressing area backstage.

However, Lindsay - who was hosting the event for British TV network Channel 4 - had already claimed the room for herself as she arrived before and was left upset when she was told she would have to vacate it.

In the lead up to her performance, Beyonce made her support acts sweat as she wouldn't allow them to use her air conditioning.

Although temperatures backstage approached 90 degrees and people were passing out, Beyonce's entourage refused to switch on her personal air cooling fans as they were just for her.

British DJ Seb Fontaine - who suffered heatstroke - told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "We were told, 'No they are Beyonce's fans.' I wasn't asking to play her drum kit on stage. I just wanted to keep cool."

In her 139-page rider, Beyonce also demanded six beauty chambers, fitness equipment, an authentic fruit platter and tea and honey.

NBA Cleveland Cavs star LeBron James and Nike hosted a celebrity basketball game at Hollywood & Highland Courtyard in Hollywood over the weekend.
