Jay Z, La La & Carmelo Anthony, Zoe Saldana, Common, Ne-Yo celebrate Nas’ 38th birthday

It’s been 10 years since rapper Nas Ethered his rival Jay Z on wax by implying that the illest MC was gay and a narcissist. But last night the two men, who magnanimously settled their feud years ago, came together to celebrate Nas’ 38th birthday at Catch in New York City.

La La and her husband Carmelo Anthony looked very classy and respectable last night. Ladies, pay attention: this is how you dress when you’re with your man in mixed company. Exposing your cleavage when you’re with your man around other men is never acceptable under any circumstance.

Colombiana star Zoe Saldana also attended the birthday bash for Nas. Jay Z took no questions from the media about reports that he has a secret son in Trinidad. Isa Jael is now 9 and living with his mom, Shenelle Scott on the exotic island in a palatial home that Jigga bought for them. Jay Z met Shenelle on the “Big Pimpin’” video set in New York City in 2000, before Jay Z met Beyoncé.

Remember when rapper AZ outshined Nas on “Life’s a Bitch” on Nas’ acclaimed Illmatic album in 1994? Everyone thought AZ was “The One” hip hop had been waiting for — and then he fell off the face of the earth.

L-R: Carmelo Anthony, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, Nas, Steve Stoute and Common. Steve Stoute’s book release party was also held last night. They say his party snarled traffic for hours because people got out of their cars to snap photos of the tricked out Maybach used in Jay-Z and Kanye West’s video for “Otis” was parked outside Schnabel’s West 11th Street home before it was pulled into the lobby for the Tuesday night bash.

    Ladies, don’t listen to Sandra, y’all gon’ mess ya man on some bullshe-yit… pull ya tiddy’s out randomly! Picnics… PTA meetings… aisle 5 at Wal & Mart… Gospelfest… tiddy’s are never inappropriate.

    And Nas looks the damn fool in that taffeta purple/pink/burgundy combo jacket that needs another X to support his should region. What happened to just being classy and fly? Why is fashion for us always about who can stand out the most. “I gotta be different, so I’m going to wear some 80′s glasses and a snug a$$ tuxedo jacket.” GTFOH… just do you. It takes more effort to try to piece together some awful $hit to try to look different than to just put on a regular APPROPRIATELY cut suit and match it up with a fly a$$ shirt and tie – and possibly a hat if that’s your thing.

    Everybody jockying for position on the “I’m different than everybody else” scale.

    Bye.

    Uh I kinda get Sandra’s point too :oops: … not saying you shouldn’t be sexy when you’re with your man, not saying that at all, but no man appreciates having a woman who looks like a streetwalker on his arm. He might be happy to fvck and yeah at first he’s gonna appreciate that everybody wants his woman but eventually that ish gets old. You have to know whats appropriate for where you’re going. At a restaurant, there’s no reason for her tits to be on display and she’s actually very appropriately dressed, not too dressy but not casual either. Now if they were at a club, then yeah show a little more skin, but still don’t look like you’re up for grabs. Problem is too many women don’t know the difference between sexy and trashy. And too many men will tell them that sh!t looks good to their faces while calling them trash behind their backs. You don’t need to show all your body parts to be sexy. I usually choose one thing to show off, if my cleavage is out than I’m not gonna show too much leg, if I wanna show off my legs I’m gonna cover up the girls… :shrugs:
