Rapper Drake’s new leading lady in his “Over” video is British singer Rita Ora, a new artist on Jay Z’s Rock Nation label. Rita hails from Kosovo, and her blond hair and light skin will surely place her in tight competition with Beyonce when her album drops. And Bey’s hubby Jay Z has has already taken this beauty under his wing as he did with Rihanna before she blew up.

The only difference between Rita and Beyonce (other than the fact that Rita’s hair is real) is the fact that Rita can blow. I mean, she can sing, and that’s a compliment coming from me.

Expect to hear a LOT about Rita in the coming months. I, for one, can appreciate the fact that Rita’s vocals don’t make my ears bleed like Beyonce’s warbling and screeching does. I guess the only question left to ask is can Rita dance, and is it necessary for her to be able to roll across a stage effortlessly if she can really blow?

Peep the audio below of Rita’s duet with Britain’s David Craig to hear why you should be as excited about this young lady as Jay Z is.

Pop legend Janet Jackson appeared on the Jay Leno Show last night and her shamelessly enhanced butt cheeks were very noticeable. Janet deliberately chose a two-pice skirt set one size too small to give definition and lift to her enhanced buttocks. If Janet were to perform no one would notice how bad she sounded because all eyes were on her false pads.

Butt pads, or artificial butt enhancement garments, is all the rage among female celebrities who were not blessed genetically with junk in their trunks. Butt pads have become as common place in a woman’s wardrobe as her underwear. I guess Janet figures if Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian and Lola Luv can gain fame and attention for their artificially inflated buttocks, then why can’t she?

Ignore all rumors that a wedding date for Tiny and T.I. has been set. If her own family members don’t know about any wedding date then how can outsiders know? Lol.

Here are the facts: T.I. and Tiny have not picked any wedding date yet. Tiny has spoken with designers about buying a dress or having one made and they have discussed which colors she wants for her bridesmaids.

The fact is Tiny and T.I. do plan on getting married this year, but no specific date has been set. Tameka is heavy into numerology and so the date she picks will be highly significant to her and T.I. The number of the date is very important to her, and even when it’s set it is still subject to change.

Speaking of numbers, an inside source informs me that Tiny may be a victim of identity theft and her cell phone number was either hacked or cloned recently. Meaning, someone likely got a phone with the same number as Tiny’s and has been using the phone to run up her phone bill. Anyone with a cloned phone can also intercept her phone calls or listen in on them.

Anyway, for that reason, Tiny’s phone is cut off which is why she hasn’t been updating her twitter page as frequently. The hacker even had a phone mailed to another state in Tiny’s name. The telephone company is on top of it, and hopefully the situation will be resolved soon.

Take heed if you are planning on flying RHOA cast member NeNe Leakes and her hubby, Greg, to your city and paying all their expenses to host your charity event: she does not honor her commitments.

This story will be in the NY Post’s Page Six tomorrow, but we’re giving you the scoop on Sandrarose.com first!

NeNe and her husband Greg were invited to Boca Raton, Florida by “Women On the Move” founder Leslie Harris (pictured, left) to host an event to raise funds for breast cancer research.

Harris founded “Women on the Move” to raise breast cancer awareness after her own grandmother succumbed to the disease. She planned to add a little star power by tapping Real Housewives of Atlanta diva Lisa Wu-Hartwell and Leakes to host the inaugural “Unveil Your Pink” charity auction to benefit Susan G. Komen For The Cure this weekend.

Harris, who is a millionaire entrepreneur, paid all of the Leakes’ expenses and put the couple up in a $2,000 a night room at the 4-star Brazilian Court Resort hotel. It was all good until Leakes called Harris today to inform her that she was not doing any press.

After a polite inquiry by Harris who reminded NeNe of her contractual obligations to do press, NeNe said, “Well, I’m entitled to change my mind if I want to.”

When Harris told NeNe she could go home if she wasn’t going to do press, NeNe allegedly responded, “Buh bye, BITCH!”

I’m told that Harris immediately called the airport and promptly canceled NeNe’s return flight to Atlanta, leaving her and hubby Greg stranded at the airport!

Harris then faxed over a copy of the signed contract to her attorney. A lawsuit will be filed on Monday against NeNe Leakes for breach of contract.

According to my spies, NeNe had no intentions of hosting the event or doing any press as contractually agreed.

She simply wanted a free trip to Florida so she and Greg could attend a star-studded event taking place in Miami this weekend on South Beach with such celebs as Boris Kodjoe, his wife Ari, Steve Harvey and Nia Long.

My spies pointed to this tweet posted by NeNe earlier today as proof that NeNe had no intentions of honoring her agreement with Leslie Harris in Boca Raton.

I just received word that this sweet new Mercedes Benz SLS AMG 2011 was purchased by a local rapper, whose name I can’t reveal for legal reasons. This picture was taken of the car as it arrived today at the Mercedes Buckhead dealership in Atlanta (I have spies everywhere). It was built entirely by the AMG division of Mercedes Benz.

Notice how everyone is standing around the car as if in awe of it? That’s because no one in Atlanta (and maybe the country) has seen one of these cars in person.

You can see the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG at the Atlanta Auto Show at the Georgia World Congress Center this weekend before it’s delivered to it’s owner. Only 1,000 of these cars will be available for sale in the U.S.


The spoiler is integrated into the trunk and pops up at certain speeds

Here are the specs:

  • Price – $250,000
  • Engine – AMG 6.3 Liter V8 engine
  • Top speed – 197 mph
  • 0 to 60 – 3.7 seconds

I’m told the rapper decided he had to have this car after watching the incredible video below. Yes, the video is real.

A day doesn’t go by when without news about young black men being killed or locked up. But here’s some good news out of Chicago: the entire senior class of Chicago’s Urban Prep Academy for Young Men has been accepted to college. You won’t hear about these intelligent young brothas in the mainstream press because it’s not a negative story about black men.

It’s great to see kids like the students of Urban Prep Academy achieving their goals. When I contrast them with a good-for-nothing like Chris Brown who, at age 21, is a convicted felon who can’t pull his pants up, it gives me hope for the future of our kids.



Mayor Richard Daley and Chicago Public Schools chief Ron Huberman surprised students at an all-school assembly at Urban Prep Academy for Young Men in Englewood this morning to congratulate them. It’s the first graduating class at Urban Prep since it opened its doors in 2006.

The school enforces a strict uniform of black blazers, khaki pants and red ties — with one exception. After a student receives the news he was accepted into college, he swaps his red tie for a red and gold one at an assembly.

The last 13 students received their college ties today, to thunderous applause.

Ask Rayvaughn Hines what college he was accepted to and he’ll answer with a question.

“Do you want me to name them all?”

For the 18-year-old from Back of the Yards, college was merely a concept–never a goal–growing up. Even within the last three years, he questioned if school, let alone college, was for him. Now, the senior is headed to the prestigious Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga. next fall.

Hines remembers the moment he put on his red and gold tie.

“I wanted to take my time because I was just so proud of myself,” he said. “I wanted everyone to see me put it on.” Read More…

Thanks to loyal reader Shana for the tip!

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for disgraced golfer Tiger Woods, his latest jump off has created a website where she posted all of his sexually graphic text messages from the time when they creeped together. The 100 messages includes Woods’ preference for slapping, choking, orgies and golden showers. Joslyn is just one of about 16 or 17 jump offs who came forward after Woods’ infamous car accident last year.

If you recall, Joslyn and celebrated attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference simultaneously with Tiger Wood’s televised apology on February 19.

At the time she said she wouldn’t sue Tiger Woods. But that was probably because she knew she didn’t have a case against him. It may be morally wrong, but it’s not illegal to bang jump offs.

But as Gloria surely knows, there are other ways to skin a cat — or skin a Tiger, as the case may be.

TMZ.com posted this tawdry text message that Woods sent to Joslyn James:

OK, I would like to have a threesome with you and another girl you trust.
– I want to treat you rough, throw you around, spank and slap you
– Have you ever had a golden shower done to you? … just morbid curiosity.
– You are my f**king whore. Hold you down while I choke you

And this last message to Joslyn sent on October 4, 2009, when Joslyn apparently showed up unexpectedly at a golf function.

“Don’t f**king talk to me. You almost just ruined my whole life. If my agent and these guys would have seen you there, F**k.”

It is typical of narcissists to point out the irresponsible behavior of others while ignoring their own role in the situation. Interestingly, Tiger’s wife Elin Nordegren-Woods has apparently forgiven him and taken him back. But there is no doubt that he will cheat on her again.

The Internet is buzzing today about Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock cancelling scheduled appearances because she caught her husband, Jesse James, cheating with a stripper. Reportedly, Bullock has packed her Oscar and moved out of the family home.

They say how you got him is how you will eventually lose him (or her). Sandra Bullock had to know that this was coming since she basically stole her husband from his wife. What goes around comes around and I don’t feel sorry for her. I love it when a cheating woman is cheated on. Karma is the ultimate revenge.

I bet Sandra can’t believe her husband cheated on her with tatted up stripper Michelle McGee. As if men with low morals (who cheated once already) have any type of standards or taste.

James left his now ex-wife, porn star Janine Lindemulder, for 45-year-old Sandra Bullock when Lindemulder was six months pregnant with their daughter, now 5.

Bullock, who portrays herself as the girl-next-door, apparently felt she was entitled to help herself to Lindemulder’s husband. So hopefully, she knows how it feels now that the shoe is on the other foot.

Bullock once told InStyle magazine that marriage to James was “stable and satisfying,”. She said then: “Thankfully I married someone who loves me just the way I am.”

Oh really? Here’s Jesse James’ ex-wife Janine Lindemulder. Notice any resemblance to his current flame? I don’t see any tattoos on Bullock.
