I'm posting these crazy looking pics of Beyonce struggling to stay relevant during last night's MTV VMA Awards show. If I don't post these, you'll keep on emailing them to me.
I'm posting these crazy looking pics of Beyonce struggling to stay relevant during last night's MTV VMA Awards show. If I don't post these, you'll keep on emailing them to me.
I'm posting these pics of attention whores Kanye West and his hard faced beard Amber Hoes from last night's MTV VMAs. I know if I don't post them, you'll just keep emailing them to me. So here you go. That is one ugly outfit she's wearing.
Old school rapper Jay Z laughs off his fans' hopes that he will run for president one day. Jay thinks his criminal past (drug dealing) and rap career would make him an easy target for the media (LOL). But don't we already have a narcissistic president with a shadowy past in the White House now?
We don't know a thing about Barack Obama's early adult years. He has no past great political accomplishments that we know of other than community organizing. Yet Barack's pot smoking and cocaine snorting days didn't keep him from being elected president, did it?
Shawn shouldn't be so quick to dismiss his pipe dreams of one day becoming the first 100% black, narcissistic president of the United States. Who would have thought that a half black man who voted "present" 130 times in his 2 short years as an Illinois state senator would one day be president?
And who would have imagined that Barack Obama, in only 8 months in office, would have an approval rating of just 42% -- only 2 points higher than Richard Nixon's approval rating when he was impeached from office.
I say give Jay Z a running shot at the presidency in 2012. By then, this country will still be mired in a deep recession and unemployment will hover at around 25-30%. Schools will be nothing more than a training ground for Obama's Youth Corps. There will only be one bank in the entire U.S. and it will be government run.
America will be renamed the United States Republic of China -- now that Obama has gone and pissed China off by imposing a tariff on imported tires. And all television and radio stations will merge into one state run channel broadcasting anti-American music and Van Jones' Greatest Hits all day.
By 2012, Obama will have succeeded in destroying America as we now know it. Jay Z cant possibly do any worse.
Tennis superstar Serena Williams was disqualified from the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadow, NY for getting gangster with a line judge during the semifinals on Saturday. The line judge picked the wrong time to call a questionable foot fault on Serena who was already having a bad day.
What got into Serena? She must have thought she was still on the streets of Compton when she pointed a racket at the tiny Asian line judge and screamed, "If I could, I would take this f***ing ball and shove it down your f***ing throat!"
We can all agree that was probably the wrong choice of words for her to use what with 25 hot mics surrounding the court and cameras rolling all over the venue. I've never seen Serena so gully, but then I don't watch much tennis anymore either.
I recall a time back in the day when John McEnroe used to throw fits and rackets all over the court. He not only cussed out the line judges and the umpires frequently, but he verbally abused the ball boys too. Still, I don't remember John ever getting tossed from the court.
But this is 2009, and you'd best believe that if you're black -- and your name is not Barack Obama -- you're not getting a pass this year or for the next few years going forward. White guilt ended when Obama was elected. So get used to it.
According to loyal reader Kemi of Hiphossip.com, the Kanye and Taylor Swift incident on the MTV VMAs last night was a staged publicity stunt. Supposedly, Beyonce wasn't in on the stunt, but I doubt that.
I should have known. Whenever you put attention an whore like Kanye West together with MTV, some bullsht is going to occur. That's why I no longer waste my time watching awards shows.
You already know what happened last night, so I won't repeat it. But recall that MTV also pulled a similar stunt with Eminem and Borat at the MTV Music Awards back in June.
Obviously this current publicity stunt was a bold move by MTV to thrust a country music artist into the forefront of music. It's a sign of the times when hip hop artists like Kanye and Eminem are used as coons and comedic props instead of as performing artists.
Maybe it's me but it seems like this is the first major awards show in a long time where the emphasis was placed more on rock acts and country music acts than hip hop artists.
Taylor Swift has sold over 10 million albums collectively in the world this year and she holds the record for song downloads this year: 20 million. Meanwhile, Jay Z sold around 350K measly copies of his album The Blueprint 3 in the first week. And he may not go gold before Christmas.
That means there's been a seismic shift in the music universe from hip hop to more traditional acts.
Rappers and hip hoppers better realize that they are now a dying breed.
A mentally unhinged Kanye West ruined what should have been a momentous achievement for 19-year-old Taylor Swift tonight at the VMA's.
Swift had just won the award for Best Female Video when Kanye rushed on stage, grabbed the mic out of her hand and said, "I'ma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!" The audience rightfully booed his azz off the stage. You can always expect that fool to cut up at an awards show.
Swift, a country music superstar, has combined album sales of 10 million worldwide and has sold over 20 million song downloads.
In a move that's sure to anger the Big Cahoona (pictured above), the Census bureau cut ties with the community organizing group ACORN yesterday after the group's criminal activity was brought to light in hidden camera videos that hit the Internets earlier this week.
As most of you know, Barack Hussein Obama trained ACORN members in community organization tactics when he was an Illinois state senator.
What you probably don't know is, after Obama was elected president, his chief of staff, Rham Emanuel, attempted to seize control of the census bureau from the Commerce Department, but the power grab was shot down after a public outcry.
Shady Obama then announced ACORN as a "national partner" in the 2010 census. Obama and the Dems also funneled over $8 billion of your tax dollars to ACORN in the last stimulus package.
Part of the loot would have gone to hiring staff and training volunteers to "collect" census data in 2010.
The Democrats (and Obama) were counting on unscrupulous ACORN members to tamper with the collection "data" that would magically inflate the number of Democrats in urban districts and give the Democrats control over Congress in 2010.
But that won't be happening now, thanks to a very brave man who heads the Census bureau.
Robert M. Groves, Census director sent a letter to the National Headquarters of ACORN yesterday informing the group that it was severing all ties for the 2010 census work.
Citing "sufficient concern" from the public over past investigations against ACORN for multiple acts of voter registration fraud, Groves wrote:
“Unfortunately, we no longer have confidence that our national partnership agreement is being effectively managed through your many local offices. For the reasons stated, we therefore have decided to terminate the partnership."
Meanwhile two more ACORN workers were fired in Washington DC Friday after they were caught on tape advising a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute how to evade federal taxes and set up an illegal brothel in the city.
Less than 24 hours earlier, ACORN fired two Baltimore city workers who were also caught on hidden camera giving the same couple tips to evade taxes and smuggle underage girls into the country to be exploited as sex workers.
Not surprisingly, HotAir.com has learned that Baltimore City State’s Attorneys Office is initiating an investigation -- not into ACORN's criminal activities -- but into a possible eavesdropping violation against filmmaker James O'Keefe (the fake pimp) because the audio portion of his videos "could possibly have been obtained in violation of Maryland Law."
Coincidentally, the State Attorney is a Democrat who donated the maximum amount to Obama's presidential campaign last year.
A shook Virginia Councilman today took back every word he said to a TMZ.com reporter about Chris Brown's community service hard labor.
Councilman Doug Conner told the reporter -- in great detail -- how the convicted felon and woman beater would report for work at 8 a.m. where he would be bussed to a roadside site to begin pulling up weeds and clearing brush.
Bloggers anticipated the moment when we would see the images of Chris Brown wearing a bright orange reflector vest -- sweat dripping from his brow as he toiled in the blazing sun with that dumb expression on his face.
Ah, but it was too good to be true. The Councilman denies saying any of it.
Here is his press release:
"The statements and information ascribed to me yesterday in the article on the celebrity news website TMZ regarding singer Chris Brown are inaccurate and untrue.
I have no personal knowledge of, or information regarding, the singer Chris Brown. In speaking to a TMZ reporter, I simply related my experience with my own individual monthly District Cleanup Project in which I utilize the services of a community service program administered by the Richmond Sheriff's Office.
Some points I want to make very clear are:
I have no knowledge of any legal arrangements regarding Chris Brown.
Richmond, Virginia does not have a 'hard labor program.'
Virginia Commonwealth University does not have gang graffiti.
I have no knowledge of any clothing attire regarding the singer Chris Brown.
I have no knowledge of any times or schedules regarding anything to do with the singer Chris Brown.
I have no knowledge of any purported duties regarding the singer Chris Brown.
I have no knowledge of any purported management or supervision regarding the singer Chris Brown.
Richmond does not have a 'Department of Corrections.'
I am unaware of any purported transportation arrangements regarding Chris Brown." Read more...
Jermaine Jackson shed a tear when he found out his Michael Jackson tribute concert in Vienna was canceled. Supposedly the concert will take place next year, but don't count on it. Jackson can thank TMZ.com and other online media for ruining his big payday. Everything was fine until the media outlets started asking around and found out the concert was one big scam, and the "headliners" didn't even know they were headlining the show! What will Jermaine think of next?
Singer Solange Knowles was spotted in Bryant Park in soggy NYC today with her son Daniel. They were both attending a NY Fashion week event, which explains the bored look on their faces.
The paps spotted actress Queen Latifah on the set of her new film Valentine's Day in Los Angeles today. Big girls LOVE Queen Latifah. She's a role model for all women who love the skin they're in!

According to Popcrunch.com, a spurned request to join him in group sex led to NFL player Shawne Merriman choking and battering tiny reality TV personality Tila Tequila. Yea, he's mixed.
According to 10News.com, the fight that lead to Merriman’s arrest last weekend after Tequila walked into his bedroom she found him with two other women. After the NFL asked her to join them, Tequila stormed out and threatened to have sex with one of his friends, that’s when Merriman allegedly tossed the 4-foot-11-inch star to the ground and began violently choking her.
Merriman denies attacking his girlfriend of two months and insists he was simply trying to keep a very intoxicated Tila from driving under the influence.
Actress LisaRaye was spotted out & about in Beverly Hills, CA yesterday wearing all white from head-to-toe. White is obviously LisaRaye's favorite color since that's all she wears. Maybe she has flashbacks to a time when she was once virginal and pure, lol. Coincidentally, Miss LisaRaye will be landing in Atlanta this afternoon. She's in town on business, including a paid appearance at an area nightclub. Make that money, girl!
R&B singer Usher with wifey #2 Def Jam exec Grace Miguel vacationing somewhere. Don't let Chilli trick y'all into believing she and Usher are getting back together. She has a new reality show coming out. It's called a publicity stunt.
Pseudo singer Keri Hilson, right, attended the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 Fashion Show at the Tent during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week yesterday. Next to her is industry exec Vashti Kola (Pharrell's ex).
Would you wear this on your foot? Notice I typed "on your foot" since there isn't anything under your foot. That's right, the model is barefoot. Does this make any sense? I know, I know, fashion -- as with art, is subjective and based on personal taste. But anyone who spends money on these... air sandals, is an idiot.
These are the hawtest bags ever! Why don't I sever see celebrities rocking them I wonder?
Earlier I posted a photo of R&B crooner Mario and "his significant other" out & about in NYC last night. A label rep emailed me expeditiously to identify the man in the photo with Mario as being his manager, J. Erving III, son of legendary NBA player Julius Erving.
Mr. Erving is quite legendary here in Atlanta (as Wendy Williams would say). But he isn't known as a back packer. Let's just say that "ladies man" would not be an inaccurate description of him.
But, Mario, on the other hand... uh, how U doin' Mario? Awwriiight!
I was viewing your site, and got the Mario story and noticed you pointed an arrow towards the guy that was standing behind Mario.. That is J. Erving, son of Dr. J the basketball player. He is Mario's business manager, and handles a lot of his business dealings. I should know, as I have worked with Mario and his business manager in the past. He was actually on the cover of Black Enterprise Magazine a few issues back(as I have attached for you)..
Yes, I realize there are other actors in the movie, but does it matter? Let's be real, the main reason everyone will be going to the theater is to see T.I., not Chris Brown (who I hear has a tiny part anyway). But doesn't this movie come out in February of 2010? I've heard of advance promo, but this is ridiculous.
Speaking ofd ridiculous, here's the totally Photoshopped movie poster. Hayden Christensen's neck is black. There's a lot of fake images floating around the Internets lately.
I know you don't care, and I'm only mentioning this because celebrity blogger Perez Hilton was in Atlanta yesterday. But did you know his very popular blog was hacked today? In fact, it's still down. I bet I know who did it. While the cat is away, the mice will play... hmmm.

By now you've heard about the two Baltimore ACORN workers who were fired for coaching a fake pimp and his prostitute on tax evasion.
A worker is seen on undercover video footage advising the prostitute to list her occupation as "performance artist."
When the pimp told the ACORN workers he planned to smuggle 13-year-old prostitutes from outside the country, one worker advised him to list 3 of the underage girls as independent minors on his income tax form!
ACORN fired the two workers claiming the two workers "did not meet ACORN’s standards of professionalism.”.
But ACORN has come under fire recently for blatant acts of fraud including voter fraud and helping to rig the results of the last presidential election. Last week, Florida law enforcement officials rounded up 11 ACORN workers and charged them with knowingly falsifying voter registration cards and registering ineligible voters in 2008.
You can exhale now, after months of exhaustive detective work, Destiny's Child Rumours blog has finally located Beyonce's ex-boyfriend, who is currently working as a chef in Houston.
His name is Lyndell Locke and he's 29. I'm sure Beyonce is anxious to keep him under wraps because, as you can see he is definitely a far better looking man than the homely camel she's with now (what happened to her taste in mens?)
Anyway, here's an excerpt from the blog:
We have tracked down the real Lyndell. One of our loyal snitches sent me the information! And guess what.. it is him. We have reached out to him for an interview but do not know how long that is going to take or whether he had to sign a secrecy paper thrown in by Mathew Knowles. I will keep you all updated.
Lyndell is still living in Houston, is currently 29 and is working as a Chef. These are the only pics I am allowed to use at the moment. One of him singing and the other at a fancy dress party.
I just received an email from an inside source who claims the singer Mario is very much "How U Doin' " and he stepped out with his significant other in NYC last night. I could be wrong (as I so often am), so please don't quote me on this. But I'm trying to figure out who is the top and who is the bottom. What do you think?

Not to brag, but my readers are so perceptive and intelligent. One such reader, N.D., found it peculiar that Hollywood socialite Nicole Richie named both of her children after characters in activist Sister Souljah's books.
Coincidence? Read on...
I would love to read your readers comments about Nicole Richie naming her children after characters in a book by Sista Soulja "The Coldest Winter Ever." She named her daughter Harlow Winter and I didn't think much of it, but now she named her son Sparrow James Midnight. I wonder what the heck is going on in this chic's mind? This book must be the only book she's ever voluntarily read or something. What's even worst is these fictional characters are notorious drug dealers and murder's. I wonder what it is about these character that Nicole felt constituted naming her children after them? Not to mention Winter and Midnight were lovers in the book.
Bruised and battered reality TV personality Tila Tequila made her first public appearance yesterday since being choked and beaten by her boyfriend Shawne Merriman last week (yea, I thought she was supposed to be a lesbun too).
As TMZ first reported, Tequila met with investigators from the San Diego District Attorney yesterday to discuss the altercation, where she alleges the Chargers star "choked and physically restrained" her last weekend.
I'm not a fan of Tila Tequila (or reality TV) but bitch made men who beat up on women need to be exposed and dealt with. Hopefully, we'll see Shawne picking up trash by the side of the highway like the felon Chris Brown will soon be doing.
I know I wrote just yesterday that I was going to cut back on Rihanna pics, buuuut I shamelessly take that back! Ri Ri looked HAWT last night wearing a hooded black ensemble with futuristic shades while partying at Intermix during fashion week in NYC. I know the paparazzi lost their minds when they saw her. Is there another female in the biz more fierce than this chick right now? She could be a school crossing guard and she would still be a star!
Oscar winning actress Halle Berry looks so calm and collected when you see her out & about shopping in Beverly Hills.
But this is what you don't see -- the hordes of paparazzi who eat off her by selling her images to tabloids worldwide. Imagine walking out your front door every morning and being chased around all day by these guys. Now you see why she doesn't have a bodyguard -- she doesn't need one. These guys will go upside anyone's head to protect their meal ticket. Still, it ain't easy being an A-list celebrity.

I thought 50 Cent retired from the biz after his last couple of CDs flopped? Here's new music by Fiddy featuring Ne-Yo off his upcoming album Before I Self Destruct, dropping in November.
Grammy award winning producer/singer Ne-Yo shows off his singing skills on this smooth track, but it's 50 Cent's annoying half-singing that kills the mood: "Have a baby by me baby, be a millionaire," he begs. Awful!
18-year-old South African runner Caster Semenya may get to keep her medals despite reports by an Australian media outlet that confirms she has both male and female organs.
According to a report in the AP, The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) won't release the official results of gender testing until November.
The IAAF ordered a battery of gender tests on Semenya -- including a CT scan -- after Semenya dominated a race prior to entering the Berlin World championships, and IAAF officials had a chance to view videos and images of her physique.
An Australian newspaper reported the test findings on Friday, which indicate Semenya has no ovaries, only a vaginal pouch and internal male testicles (where her ovaries should be), which are producing 3x's the normal amount of the male hormone testosterone in her blood.
The extra testosterone gives Semenya her secondary male sex characteristics such as facial hair, a ripped muscular physique and deep voice.
"We would like to emphasize that these should not be considered as official statements by the IAAF," the federation said in a statement regarding the reports that first appeared in News Limited and Fairfax newspapers.
The IAAF went on to say Semenya would likely keep the gold medal she won at Berlin because there was no cheating or deception involved.
"Our legal advice is that, if she proves to have an advantage because of the male hormones, then it will be extremely difficult to strip the medal off her, since she has not cheated," Davies wrote to the AP.
But experts say Semenya's stellar track & field career may be over due to her unfair advantage over the other women. Online reports indicate that other female runners may refuse to enter races that she is in.
Here's the music video for Whitney's single "I Look To You" off her #1 album by the same title. Whitney will appear on Oprah's show on Monday and Tuesday. I hope she kills this song. She needs a strong performance to dead all the rumors that she's a has-been whose voice is shot.
From Talking With Tami:

Don't you hate it when young ungrateful punks show a lack of respect for those veterans who helped paved the way for their success?
As I told you earlier, Chris Brown arrived at JFK today and tweeted that one of the photographers "looked like Wendy Williams."
As many times as the Diva Wendy Williams played this punk Chris Brown's records on her show, he had the nerve to disrespect her? Well Wendy responded today in her own unique way. But if I were her I wouldn't have responded to that convict. Once a woman hater, always a wonan hater.
Notice how he's talking sht about successful black women lately? I bet he wouldn't disrespect Larry King on Twitter -- or anyone he thinks he needs to resurrect his flopped career.
CHRIS BROWN V. WENDY WILLIAMS - On Friday's episode (9/11/09) of THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW, host Wendy Williams responds to today's "tweet" from R&B star and former Rihanna flame Chris Brown (whose Twitter name is Mechanical Dummy). According to Williams, Brown told followers that when he arrived at JFK, that, "one of the guyz looked like wendy williams or was it the other way around....lol." Not willing to let that one slide without a response, Williams, who was taping her talk show when the Brown tweet went 'round the world, used her television platform to set the record straight. Commenting on the tweet, she said..."in other words, he's calling me a man. Well you know, at least if I was a man then I would spend my time bullying other men, perhaps, and not..women."
Taped live in New York, The Wendy Williams Show combines the latest buzz and hot topics with a diverse mix of celebrities from the arenas of film, music, sports and television. Williams' bold personality and irreverent and witty commentary on life make for a groundbreaking talk format that entertains viewers and quenches their thirst for honest, enlightening and entertaining television. A successful radio personality and author, Williams' show delivers even more Wendy to her loyal fan base across the nation and introduces her to an even broader audience. Whether she is offering real advice during her "Ask Wendy" segments, providing her take on the latest headlines during the always surprising "Hot Topics," or getting up close and personal with headline makers, celebrities or everyday people, Williams' fresh approach and love of life and laughter shines through in every hour.

At some point celebrities are going to figure out that Twitter is the devil -- just like when they found out that Myspace wasn't all that great for their careers.
Brown arrived in NYC today sporting 3-day old stubble on his chin and looking haggard and disheveled. He was met by hordes of paparazzi and he immediately took to his twitter to tweet that they were "rude," and that one of them "looked like Wendy Williams." Should Wendy be insulted?
Hopefully Chris won't need to promote his wack album on her popular TV show any time soon.
One day the paps won't care about Chris Brown (like I don't now), and his punk azz will be just another washed up, has-been singer with a criminal record.
According to ContactMusic.com, Jennifer Hudson's sister Julia Hudson is pregnant with her second child.
New mum Jennifer Hudson is to be an aunt - her sister is pregnant. The happy news comes almost a year after a family murder tragedy, in which Hudson's sibling Julia lost her seven-year-old son Julian.
The boy was shot and dumped in the trunk of an abandoned car on the outskirts of Chicago, Illinois.
The Oscar winner's mother and brother were also killed in the 24 October (08) killing spree. William Balfour, the estranged husband of Hudson's sister, has pleaded not guilty to charges of first degree murder and home invasion.
Hudson gave birth to David Daniel Otunga Jr. last month (Aug09) and now insiders tell Star magazine that Julia is four months pregnant. The source tells the publication, "When Julia found out, she called Jennifer right away. They're both ecstatic.
"They know they can never replace Julian, but this new baby has brought the family a lot of joy."
Beyonce's sister Solange knowles drew stares as she strolled down the street in NYC today. Solange is in town for Fashion Week. I don't know what the hail she's wearing, but I LOVE the shoes.
I was on Solo's Twitter today and all her followers were praising her and telling her how pretty she was. But I didn't see one Tweet praising her for putting texturizer in her hair -- so I left a tweet saying just that (I hope she reads it).
I'm beginning to warm to her Solange's news tyle, although her receding hairline still snags my eye, but I'll get over it. See, ladies, that's what happens to your hairline when you wear weaves and extensions.
Stars in their own right, actress Taraji P. Henson, singers Mary J Blige and Gladys Knight were spotted outside their hotels in NYC today. The celebs are in NYC to promote Tyler Perry's new film which hits theaters on Friday, Sept. 11th -- Taraji's 38th birthday.
