Over the weekend, blogger Miss Jia posted this pic of Your Beyonce Fanclub’s Natasha and then went in on her. I didn’t know those two had beef?

You know as black women we can’t support each other unless there’s something in it for us. We are the only race that continuously tears each other down out of jealousy, envy, or whatever. Sometimes we don’t even need a reason. Some of us are just pathetic like that.

Personally, I see nothing wrong with Miss Natasha. But some immature juveniles on twitter roasted her anyway. I think Natasha’s weave is on point — one of the best I’ve ever seen. And her doggy is so precious! Not to mention that she has one of the better Beyonce fan sites on the Internets!

Hiphossip.com‘s Kemi is the latest blogger to be harassed by Usher’s baby mama, Tameka Foster.

At least that psycho didn’t leave threats on Kemi’s voice mail. If Trampeka’s attorney is reading this, you should really have a heart to heart talk with your client because she is out-of-control and she’s going to mess with the wrong one someday.

Kemi writes:

What the hell, I got home and this person really did their homework as my number is listed in info. I am a public person. Tameka went to my sites, got my real name and called 411 and she called my home and at 11am this morning I ran to the computer and fielded an e-mail to Tiny’s publicist and Tiny’s cell and facebook. Wouldn’t you think that it’s her story and want it her way? That is how I practice Journalism.

My kid 8-year-old son KJ now listened to the messages while we were out and ran to me that there is a message from a woman that said “This is Tameka Foster, Usher’s wife and I read what you wrote about me, FUCK you!”

This is very shocking and uncalled for as I am the one that has always written good things about Tameka. What didn’t she like? I report from the wires and I also commented on Ryan Cameron’s interview with her. Good things as in supporting her. She really owes me an apology. I am going to change this to an MP3 and put it out there. Anyone that wants it can request it. I am really shocked that some of us Journos are fair and this is what we get. Pls advise me what to do. Should I air this message? I would like to speak to her if anyone knows her. I wanna know why she is mad at me. These are the only stories I have done of her in the last 12 months. Always supported her….

After the break is a screengrab of direct messages sent by Trampeka to another of my loyal readers on Twitter.com. Trampeka can’t seem to keep my name out of her mouth for someone who doesn’t even know me.

Over the weekend, I was on the phone with an industry friend of mine who was listening to music. Chris Brown’s song “Crawl” came on and I let it slip that I liked the song before I even realized it was him.

So despite the fact that he has a lukewarm song out right now, I still think he’s a woman beater and I hope his careers fails.

Loyal reader Wire Blahnik shares my sentiments:

How could most of the people on here, mainly females, have such immature and bad judgment. Chris brown is an abuser.
It was not the first time he hit Rhianna (for whatever reason) and it will not be the last time he puts his hands on a women in a negative way. There is no excuse for the way this 210 pd 6ft man beat down and just about choked unconscious this 135 pd woman. There is no excuse for holding her in a head lock and repeatingly punching her in the face.

There is no excuse for biting her. There is no excuse! You young ladies need to take this issue a lot more seriously. What do you think the next step would be? Murder? By intent or not sh*t happens. Chris brown is not remorseful talking about I’m human and make mistakes. NO! WHEN IT COMES TO BEATING DOWN A WOMAN FOR 15 MINS. THATS NO MISTAKE. His career is in danger and that is the ONLY reason why he’s fronting like he’s remorseful. If this beat down wasn’t made public believe me when I tell you, Chris beatem down Brown would have gone on as if nothing happened. This is his norm. This is what he knows. I have no pitty for this boy or his nose diving career. He need his azz beat on!

Get a clue black community. Its not about how cute he is or how slick he can dance. You’re out jet-sking a week after you beat down your girlfriend. Hitting up the club right after court. Man FAIL CHRIS! FAIL! And I pray you get the help you and your mother need because after witnessing her on Larry King, she could use some as well.

My girl over at Project Scoop found this pic of Ciara and T-Boz together at… well, I’ll let Scoop Lady tell it:

I usually don’t indulge in the negro blogs nonsense as they post anything in their email to fill up time. But a recent post on “one of them” about how Ciara disrespected TLC at the Justin concert comes to mind when I see this pic…. AT THE VERY CONCERT. Not to mention Tboz twiting about how UNTRUE that story was. SMDH Read More…

Lindsay Lohan’s embattled father Michael Lohan apologized to NeNe Leakes for calling her a “fat ass” after NeNe called him a toxic parent on Wednesday’s edition of “The Insider”.

Lohan said: “Do something worthwhile and promote Nutri-System… Give your chair a break and move your fat a** outta there!”

But after a moment of quiet reflection, Lohan gave this statement to The Insider:

“I apologize to the producers of [“The Insider”], the viewers and even Miss Leakes for coming back at her, for her attack on me, in the inappropriate manner I did. I do however wish I had known she was on the panel because then I would have known what I was in for and I would have handled things differently.

“To begin with, she may have children, but none in a crisis situation. Second, for her to call me a broke ass when I am not, but she had a house in foreclosure and 2 cars repoed [sic], I would have addressed that as well.
“This show was about helping my daughter and owning up to my part of her life and why I have taken these measures. Not a personal attack on Lindsay or me. I am sorry for my conduct and I hope Ms. Leakes is for hers.”

I like how he said, “and even Miss Leakes.”

Director/playwright Tyler Perry let his Madea side show on this upcoming Sunday’s edition of CBS 60 Minutes.

Tyler was reacting to director Spike Lee’s criticism of his coonish characters, who Lee calls “racial stereotypes.” Tyler counters that his characters are “bait – disarming, charming make you laugh, bait.”

Tyler argues that he uses his disarming bait to draw in whites who normally don’t know that these types of black people exist. At least I think that’s what he meant.

Tyler goes on to say, “I can slap Madea in something and talk about God, love, Faith, forgiveness, family,” all the qualitiess that Tyler feels whites should love about us, but they don’t know about unless he uses coons or some other stereotype to draw them in.

Sort of like what Chris Rock did with his documentary “Good Hair” to get white people into the theaters. By the way, “Good Hair” bombed at the box office.

Then Tyler loses track of the point he’s trying to make (maybe because it sounds so ludicrous?) so he goes on the attack, “That pisses me off!” he snaps. He tries to take another stab at making sense out of his response to what he knows is valid criticism.

He accuses his critics (Hollywood) of not making enough movies with coonish characters who speak to us.

Got that?

Last night I received a phone call from a local star who wanted to know if she could give my phone number to a celebrity makeup artist who said she knew me.

It took me a minute to recall who Jai Jai, of Dream Face, was. She reminded me that I met her at Lenox Square Mall last Christmas while she was shopped with her then friend, rapper Diamond, formerly of Crime Mob.

On Wednesday, another blog that specializes in tabloid style junk journalism posted revealing pictures of Jai Jai. An embarrassing move made even more humiliating by the fact that Jai Jai’s ex-boyfriend of 6 years, rapper Shawty Lo, was the original source of the photos which were taken off his Myspace page.

In captions under the photos, Shawty Lo gave the impression that the celebrity makeup artist was a random groupie emailing slutty pics of herself to the rapper. But there is always more to every story — and this story runs deep.


Jai Jai and rapper Shawty Lo in happier times

The story begins back in 2003 when the young stylist met the struggling rapper and the two fell in love. Jai Jai was there for Shawty Lo through the lean times, and provided a source of support on the outside while the rapper served a year in prison.

After they broke up, Jai Jai met local emerging rapper Oowee and had a baby by him. Tragically, the baby girl passed away and the young mother was forced to bury her only child. “Over the time I’ve actually developed from a teen into an adult and I’ve grown through many transitions and transformations,” Jai Jai said.

During their on again, off again relationship, Shawty Lo met another woman who favored Jai Jai and started a family with her. But through it all. Shawty and Jai Jai remained close, exchanging phone calls and text messages. But recently, their relationship became strained due to the insecurity of his baby mama. Jai Jai and Shawty Lo’s baby mama finally came to blows inside an Atlanta nightclub last weekend.

Black women today are more desperate than ever for love and acceptance. Our strong unnatural yearning to be more loved and desired than the next chick shows in the extraordinary steps we take to achieve unattainable beauty.

Cosmetic procedures are so affordable now that scheduling appointments for butt injections and breast implants have become as routine as seeing the dentist.

The reward in growing old gracefully comes with a sense of accomplishment and wise maturity. You are no longer concerned with what others think of you and you develop a comfortable self awareness that you never thought you possessed.

Instead of looking to others for love and approval, you learn to look within yourself and accept yourself for who you are.

In an interview with Heart & Soul magazine, actress Tamala Jones talks about her insight into the reality of our desperate search for artificial beauty through cosmetic means.

In a 2006 interview with Jawn Murray, the actress, who starred in films like ‘Daddy Day Camp,’ ‘The Wood’ and ‘Booty Call,’ talked in absolutely glowing terms about her new breast implants.

“OH MY GOD, I was going to lie at first and not say anything and act like, s–t, I’ve grown. But I was like, you know what, I was just on the red carpet with my girlfriend Jaime Pressly, and I was not plump like this. I might as well tell the truth. I’m very happy with them, and they don’t look fake to me and don’t feel fake to me… I can’t wait to get a movie part where I can show them to you guys. In the right part in the right movie, I am willing to show those babies so you guys can see,” the actress said then.

Now the 34-year-old single star wants to have her breast implants removed.

“That was a period where I didn’t quite fully love who I was. Now I appreciate the old Tamala a lot more, and [at some point] I’m going to have the breast implants removed,” she revealed.

Heart and Soul magazine is on newsstands now.

*Reposting for those who didn’t see this video the first time I posted it before Kanye removed copies for the web.

The day after Kanye pulled the vid down, someone made RIP KANYE WEST a trending topic on Twitter.com.

The chicks in this video are all visually stunning, LSLH fare. The type that we’ve come to expect in an artsy video such as this. Black chicks needn’t bother to audition anymore because we are not synonymous with class even with a head full of the best human Yaki.

Bothas like Spike Jonz, Kanye West, etc., have set us back 200 years.

There is no doubt that Barack Obama’s narcissistic arrogance is hurting him in the polls. The former Illinois state Senator is facing the worst decline in popularity since July and the steepest drop of any president at the same stage of his first term in more than 50 years.

Obama’s indecision in sending more troops to Afghanistan and his tripling of the national debt practically ensures that he will not be reelected in 2012.

Gallup recorded an average daily approval rating of 53 per cent for Mr Obama for the third quarter of the year, a sharp drop from the 62 per cent he recorded from April.

His current approval rating – hovering just above the level that would make re-election an uphill struggle – is close to the bottom for newly-elected president. Mr Obama entered the White House with a soaring 78 per cent approval rating.

The bad polling news came as Mr Obama returned to the campaign trail to prevent his Democratic party losing two governorships next month in states in which he defeated Senator John McCain in last November’s election. Read More…
