Hard core fans of R&B Diva Monica are complaining bitterly online and via emails that Monica's CD, Still Standing, is sold out everywhere they go. One fan wrote:
Here in Houston we are having trouble getting Monica CD's. Best Buy only had 12-30 on the first day and they don't get another shipment til next Tuesday. Target only had 80 copies. Needless to say all Monica CD were sold out by noon yesterday. I think that this was done on purpose and I'm a little pissed about it. They don't want her numbers to look good in the first week. This is how they do real R&B.
Mo's fans have long complained that J Records does not support Monica. And there are rumors that monies designated for Mo's CD budget were reallocated to other artists projects on the label. The artists are always told how many albums will be shipped in advance.
There are also unsubstantiated rumors that J Records refused requests from Monica's camp to ship more albums to the stores. The label's refusal prompted Monica to tweet a request to fans asking them to bombard a J Records exec Twitter account.
Although the rumors of J Records sabotage efforts are unconfirmed, the lack of Monica's CDs on store shelves (and fans unable to find the CD) tells the real story.
Update, 4:20 pm:
If you are having trouble finding Monica's CD, send an email with the store name, ID #, and location to email@example.com
By now you know that reality TV personality Kim Kardashian was given the old heave ho by star NFL running back Reggie Bush. It seems Reggie now finds that life is a bowl of cherries after winning the Super Bowl. And being with a needy woman who keeps track of his every movement is the pits!
Rumors swirled that Reggie Bush was flirting with the ladies at Robin Thicke's birthday bash in NYC last week. Supposedly, Kim K warned Reggie that she was monitoring all the blogs and she wasn't happy with the rumors that she was seeing. So word is that Reggie fired back with a series of text messages advising Kim that he was now a single man.
they say Reggie gave Kim the ultimate man-whore excuse: "it's not you, it's me'."
"Reggie dumped Kim by text while she was in Miami," a pal of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. "He actually sent her three text messages that said he needed time and space and ‘it's not you, it's me'."
Ladies, any time a man tells you those words, that means it really is over and he has moved on. Do yourself a favor and don't lower yourself to begging and pleading -- or even contacting him under the pretense of calling to see how he's doing -- because men HATE needy women. That's not exactly a quality that attracted him to you in the first place. Being needy is never sexy!
Remember American Idol hopeful Tamyra Gray? Well, she and hubby Sam Watters, former member of R&B group Color Me Bad, are expecting their first child together.
American Idol was a breeze compared to Tamyra Gray’s latest endeavor: the season one alum is expecting a baby!
This will be the first child together for Gray and husband Sam Watters, who don’t want to know the sex of the baby until the big day. In the meanwhile, the 30-year-old singer is preparing for her July due date and laying low.
“I’m just trying to take care of myself and enjoy it,” she tells Entertainment Weekly. “This is way harder than Idol.”
Gray, who has also appeared in episodes of Boston Public, and Watters, a music producer and former member of Color Me Badd, wed in Sept. 2006 in Italy. http://celebritybabies.people.com/2010/03/24/american-idol-alum-tamyra-gray-expecting-first-child/
An emotionally disturbed Hollywood, Florida teenager is in a juvenile detention facility after brutally beating his 12-year-old girlfriend on a school bus when she tried to break up with him. Police say Sanchez Green, 14, repeatedly punched D'Angelique Coby, fracturing her nose.
The latest incidence of teenage domestic violence is sadly reminiscent of the thrashing that singer Chris Brown gave his then girlfriend Rihanna last year.
Just like Brown, Green attacked his girlfriend and then ran away like a coward rather than face the consequences like a man. Luckily, a school cop witnessed the attack and chased Green for several blocks after radioing for help. Green was caught and will be detained in a juvenile facility for at least 3 weeks. But the problem won't end there.
Cops are sickened by all the teen-on-teen violence. One cop said, "the response of physical violence so quickly is a part of our society now."
Once again, Barack Obama trots a poor, disadvantaged child before the media and exploits the child for his own selfish means.
As Obama signed the new health care bill into law, 11-year-old Marcellas Owens looked on. Marcellas's mother -- a crackhead -- died of pulmonary congestion (fluid in the lungs) at age 27.
According to the White House, Marcellas's mother died because she lacked health care. I call BS on that. There is no public hospital in this country that accepts government funding that will turn away a patient based on his or her ability to pay. Crackheads are notoriously difficult to treat because they are non-compliant with their medications.
As a registered nurse, I have treated homeless people brought in off the streets! Go down to Grady hospital and ask any of the patients in the emergency room if they have insurance and I guarantee you that 85% of them will say they do not.
Yet those patients will be seen by doctors and treated like every other patient regardless of their inability to pay. Once again, Obama and the Democrats have used scare tactics and outright lies to push their socialist agenda on the American public.
This health care bill is not about saving lives or providing health care to all. It's simply about Barack Obama's legacy as the first president to get a bill passed. Sadly, this bill, in its current form, will do nothing to improve health care. In fact, it will make it that much harder for you to get the quality health care you need when the doctor and nursing shortages worsen.
Expect even longer waits in doctor's offices -- that's if you can get a doctor's appointment. And in 2014, when the insurance mandate kicks in, expect to pay excessively high premiums. It's almost a guarantee that most of you won't be able to afford the premiums even with the government subsidies.
If you can't afford to pay an extra bill now, how will you be able to afford it in 2014?
There's a funny thing about narcissists: no matter how much success they achieve in life they are never satisfied. So this is an empty victory for Obama, who after signing the health care bill into law, probably went outside for a quick smoke break.
Newark police have announced the arrests of two men in a mystery missing persons case that spanned three decades.
The case of the five missing teenagers baffled Newark, New Jersey police detectives for almost 32 years after they simply vanished one night without a trace. The five boys -- all 16 years old -- were last seen alive on Aug. 20, 1978 at the corner of Clinton Avenue and Fabian place in a working class neighborhood in Newark.
According to police, Lee Evans, 56, and Philander Hampton, 53, murdered the five boys in retaliation for stealing their marijuana.
The two men and a third accomplice herded the boys at gunpoint into an abandoned house within blocks of where they last seen. The teenagers were tied up, gagged, doused with gasoline and set on fire. They were burned alive. The intensity of the flames destroyed the abandoned house they died in and the two houses on either side of it.
The families of the teens reported them missing the next day. But the fires and the disappearance of the five teens were never linked.
The mystery was finally solved last year when one of the killers broke down and confessed his part in the slayings to a family member of one of the dead teens. A third suspect in the crimes died of natural causes in 2008. At the time of the murders, Hampton was 21 and Evans was 24.
According to myFox News, the five teens had broken into one of the suspects' apartments and stolen marijuana. Evans was immediately suspected since he was the last person to see the boys alive. The contractor had routinely hired the boys to do odd jobs around the neighborhood. He was repeatedly interviewed in the months after the disappearances but was cleared as a suspect after passing a lie detector test.
The site where the abandoned house once stood is now home to Mattie Williams and her grandson, Kenan. She said police arrived on her doorstep last Summer with search warrants and a ground penetrating sonar device. "They were looking for bodies," said Williams. "But they found none."
God has blessed Beyonce Knowles with a new family addition -- a baby boy named Nixon. Although this baby wasn't exactly planned, I'm sure his sisters Beyonce and Solange will welcome him with open arms. Even though the newborn's very existence proves to the world that their father Mathew Knowles is a shady, immoral, sneaky, dishonest, lying adulterer and male slore.
The girls should accept the baby anyway because, after all, he is a gift from God:
Beyonce Knowles is officially a big sister again -- a DNA test has confirmed that Mathew Knowles is the father of Alexsandra Wright's brand new baby boy ... sources tell TMZ.
With the DNA test a match, we're told lawyers for Knowles and Wright are in the final stages of negotiating a settlement for baby Nixon's child support.
Wright filed a paternity suit last October against Knowles -- who was temporarily ordered to pay $8,200 in monthly child support.
Wright claims she had an 18 month affair with Knowles. Read More...
A loyal reader called my attention to the fact that singers such as LeToya Luckett, Monica and newcomer Dondria have begun featuring obviously down low men as leading man in their music videos. Has anyone else noticed this trend? Are down low men the new music video accessory?
A loyal reader writes:
Remember Dondria the youtube singer chick signed to Jermaine Dupri's label well she has hot Springy feel love single called "Your The One" that's been blowing up on radio airwaves for some time now. The video just came out and guess who she picked to be her leading man.... You guessed it Trey Songz alleged ex-lover Brandon Hines. Just thought I'd let you know.
And what's up with all these ladies picking closeted men to be their love interest in videos? First Letoya Luckett with Keston Karter and now Dondria with Brandon Hines. Is a good straight man that scarce out there?
Ever since teen heartthrob Justin Bieber emerged on the scene, his fans have wondered which lucky girl has the key to his heart. Justin broke hearts everywhere when he finally revealed his mystery woman. Isn't she beautiful?! The couple were spotted on their way to lunch at the Boston Market after Justin's interview on 'The View' in NYC today. The young lady ignored the paparazzi's questions and refused tell them what her name was.
Update, 10:26 pm:
Her name is Melissa Victor and, judging by the company she keeps, she's well-connected. Get it, Biebs!
