After a successful run with his first book, Power & Beauty, rapper and noted author T.I. Harris, 32, released his second novel titled Trouble & Triumph. About 200 fans began lining up at 4 p.m. last night at the Buckhead Barnes & Noble in Atlanta patiently waiting for The Kang to arrive.
Both Power & Beauty and Trouble & Triumph are co-authored by David Ritz, a veteran writer who has released his own works titled XY and Z. T.I. felt good about the collaboration, saying: “We definitely have an equal collaboration. We start our brainstorming and the best ideas stick, obviously.”

The full Samuel L. Jackson “Wake the f*ck up” pro-Obama campaign ad has been released. Using Dr. Seuss-inspired rhymes, Jackson uses scare tactics, offensive language, and the aid of one bratty adolescent to badger teenagers, their parents, and even grandparents, into voting for Barack Obama in the upcoming elections.
Jackson tells a teenage boy that Mitt Romney will cut student loans. In another scene, the bratty adolescent explains to her teenage sisters that, under Romney, planned parenthood will be cut.
All of the profanity-laced scenes involve children or teens, and Jackson concludes his rants with the phrase “WAKE THE F*CK UP!”
I can just imagine how the left wing liberals in the media would howl and gnash their teeth if a Mitt Romney lackey created such an offensive ad to support Romney’s campaign for president. I’m surprised that Obama doesn’t appear at the end of this crock declaring “I approved this message.”
Actress Taraji P. Henson was the celebrity guest on “ANDERSON LIVE” today. Taraji’s dress was bursting at the seams and she had to be literally sewn into her dress on the set. Anderson brought his dog out to sit-in for Taraji while her stylists worked frantically on her dress backstage.
Anderson Cooper: Oh, my my… You are literally being sewn into your dress.
Taraji P. Henson: It happens. It happens a lot. And, um…
Anderson: Wow! Do you bust out a lot like this… so to speak?
Taraji: I’m a real woman with curves honey.
Anderson: I like that!
Taraji: Um, yeah, it happens a lot. Unfortunately, you have these designers who make these incredible pieces of wardrobe but they put these really cheap zippers in.

If you don’t know where your man is, that’s probably because it’s time for the 2nd Annual Fitness & Art Miss Pole Dance Colombia Competition. Men save all year to travel to Medellin, Colombia, where 30 of the world’s most athletic and agile strippers will battle for the title of Miss Pole Dance Colombia.
The lovely ladies will amaze the judges with their gravity defying pole tricks. Needless to say the event is already sold out.
These beautiful ladies make the pole dancing competition look easy, but please don’t try this at home. These women are professionals, and you could get hurt.
Watch the promo video after the break.
This is how Jennifer Lopez rolls when she goes jogging. Lopez (center wearing grey knit cap) is surrounded on all sides by armed male and female bodyguards. The 43-year-old singer and her choreographer boyfriend Caspar Smart, 2nd from left, went for a morning jog in Poland early this morning. If you plan on having a career as a celebrity bodyguard you’d better be in good shape.

Earlier this week I received an email from an insider who suggested that rap mogul Ludacris and singer Kelly Rowland were romantically involved. I reached out to a source within Luda’s camp who emphatically denied the rumor.
“There is absolutely no truth to that rumor,” wrote the source in a text message.
