Sad news: Kanye West’s stellar music career is officially over. Kanye leaked this snippet of a track featuring Drake titled Ghetto University and it sucks worse than a broken vacuum cleaner. What happened to Kanye? At one time I used to fiend for this man’s music. Nowadays when I hear his tracks I just change the station or turn the volume down. Sad.

Loyal reader Tamara M. sent in this pic of R&B Diva and her boo, Shannon Brown of the LA Lakers strolling arm in arm together. A little birdie told me that Shannon recently met Mo’s parents Marilyn Best and Rev. Ed Best, and they both loved him!

I also hear that Shannon supports Mo in all her personal and artistic endeavors. The 6-4 guard recently made the decision to return to the Lakers to win a third ring rather than choose a team closer to his lady’s heart. Mo’s boys, Melo and Lil Rocko love the chris brown look-a-like. Expect a big announcement real soon!

Good Morning Sandra,

I did not know if [you] seen this, Monica look so happy..

Music mogul Sean “Puffy” Combs was spotted leaving the French Connection afterparty at Trousale Nightclub in Los Angeles last night. I had no idea Sean had such bad posture. Puff climbed into a waiting car with two young blondes — neither of whom were his live-in lover Cassie Ventura. Maybe he got into the wrong car by mistake?


Pharrell Williams was seen leaving Pastis in the meatpacking district of NYC after eating lunch with a friend yesterday. He was wearing loud yellow popsicle shorts from his Billionaire Boys/Ice Cream clothing line which is all the rage with fashion forward Metrosexuals.

In an interview with the Muslim network Al Jazeera, Wyclef Jean, who had high hopes of running for president of Haiti despite the fact that he’s not a resident of the island, said Haitians donโ€™t need a local president, I think we need a global president, someone that can travel.โ€ :blink:

Wyclef is so clueless that his statement would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

This evening the election council in Haiti rejected Wyclef’s bid for presidency on the grounds that he has not lived in Haiti for over 5 years. Duh…

Wyclef broke the news on his Twitter page tonight.

Only a moron would think he could run for president of a country that he is not even a resident of.

Maybe Wyclef can run for president of the United States in 2012 (or sooner if Obama is impeached).

I am proud to say that together WE made Newsweek‘s distinguished list of Most Influential Bloggers. Thanks to Newsweek‘s Kathy Jones for considering us for this honor!

I had a lengthy speech already prepared, but I seem to have misplaced it. So I’ll just say that I could not have accomplished this great feat without You, my loyal readers!

What’s that? The list is actually Newsweeks’ Most ‘Notorious’ Bloggers?

What’s the difference? ๐Ÿ™‚

Rapper Young Jeezy chose the old Fourth Ward neighborhood near downtown Atlanta to shoot his music video for “Jizzle” featuring Lil Jon 2 weeks ago.


These are your typical Atlanta breezy’s who think they are too cute to smile. I do love the fact that all — except one — are dark skinned sistas. This must be some kind of record for a rap video. Kudos to Jeezy!
