  • Parent

    What about JE?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Jermaine did his thing, when it was still a new frontier! Unfortunately, he fell way off, and never regained his career momentum!

    People only know you by what’s current!

    JD didn’t branch off like Diddy, and didn’t want to make a life with Janet!

    Hope his doc does well!

  • Rayscoty

    I thought that was Drea grandmother….

  • CookieMobster

  • Renee26

    Jermaine looks just like his momma, his daughter’s pretty

    Why is Buku outfit from the 90’s ? she should avoid all things associated with 1994-96

  • Logan Roberts

    I thought that was Remy ma at first.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    They were good. However I was a bigger 112 fan *shrug*. Neither need a whole documentary. Maybe like 4-5 minutes out of one.

I said “they call me Gillette, aaaa the best a man can get” twas my line https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a17f2105171d61a54ceddd81d81000882527021c366afb2febdadf0c74b638a8.gif for years after that, every time a dude asked my name on up through the early 2000’s.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    JD didn’t branch off like Diddy, and didn’t want to make a life with Janet!

    I thought I was the only person who has this song on my ??List. However, I was so mad when they came to NOLA and was acting like they were singing karaoke at the family BBQ. Lackluster ass performance ?

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Not really. TLC had them by a good 6 months. If not longer. Far as who did it first.

    Kris Kross just had theirs on backwards like some retards.

  • CookieMobster

    OMG so he liked Tupac? That seems like the dude was cool ? and just tryin to be down I guess, bless is old pasty white heart. I guess he can play “picture me rollin” when he pulls out the parking lot and go home and make some “thug passion” with him wife while is resume “gets around” huh?? He “gotta keep his head up”

  • Wreckognize Game

    This is too funny ? He can hang out with the guy at my job that watches YouTube videos of black comedians and uses their words in his vernacular. I passed his cubicle and saw him watching Robin Harris, Redd Fox and Eddie Murphy Raw. ?

  • Logan Roberts

    That’s a damn shame Kellz folks have on the best of Ross, while he was out here living in Trump Towers. I guess Brat will never grow up and Usher looks interesting…

  • Alextra Ballard

    ????

  • TheWildChild

    Is this what Drea spent those back child support coins on? them lopsided looking breasts?

  • Ni Ni

    best of Ross

  • Kimberly King

    Drea Kelly wrong AF for that lip Chile. The lip liner should have matched her skin tone. Horrendous.

    Brat ain’t aged a bit, but I would love for someone to tell her it’s no longer 1996.

    Everyone looks HORRIBLE.

  • kboogie

  • Angela Nicole

    Why did drea wear that and her hair never done…she always look a hot damn mess

  • grenadiadrian

    “Remarkable Rise…” Nah. So-So Def forever got lapped. Kris Kross came out…then Death Row Records appeared. Brat? Bad Boy made its debut, followed by No Limit, Cash Money, Ruff Ryders, etc. So-So was the Judy Winslow of urban record labels.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Kelly’s daughter looks absolutely amazing. Drea, you are too cute for the 90s over the boarder lip liner. Keep your head up pretty girl.
    I’ve got nothing for the rest.

  • Brooklyn23

    I never understand why females do their lips like that. When i wore lip liner around my lips i blend with the lipstick, you just dont leave like hers. Blending is everything. Furthermore the chica next to her looks crack headish. Looking like a hood Marilyn Monroe.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    that is her daughter next to her… the one who contemplated suicide from the drama surrounding her father. She is a beautiful young woman. Be compassionate.

  • Brooklyn23

    Wow i didn’t know that was her daughter. I would’ve put a zip on it I didnt even know that was a youth ?

  • Vonn

    Her stomach looks like it had a stroke.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    that’s okay. we on here to mess with people and entertain ourselves. we forget we are sometimes talking about fragile spirits. You have no idea what I want to say about Bow Wow looking so uncomfortable in that main pic. Jesus or Buddah or Zenu or somebody come bless his spirit!!!

  • Pamela

    Is Mr Dupree related to Mr Gordy of Motown ? They look like they could be.

  • Pamela

    They are just haters, period.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I get you, I thought he cheated on her, and got a stripper pregnant, a rumor I read! I know Janet gave him the gift of goodbye!

    I remember when he was on Oprah with Janet, he looked uneasy, like he swallowed a canary!

    JD reaches the top of the cliff, and only to fall down it, Mariah’s manager (“We Belong Together”), a very short stint.

    I hope he finds his worth! I loved the “Confessions” era!

  • Ladyshopper

    LOL…was thinking the same thing.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    If I was some of these chicks, I would wait and save money to get a great wig and an installer. I’d rather fix my real hair up instead of walking out with a bum wig. Drea Kelly…no ma’am

    You know whats crazy I scrolled back up to see the pic again and saw ut said her daughter. I didnt see it the 1st time because sometimes I just scroll and dont bother with the write up. But yes I googled her saying she didnt do anything and she didnt ask to be here, and how some of the kids parents dont want their kids hanging out with her. I feel for her

  • MJF

    Da Brat is childish for dressing like this at her age. That’s all I got.

  • Trace da Ace

    long sigh…..NEXT!

  • SpiceGirl

    DEAD! Lmbo…was thinking the same thing.

  • Vonn

    Yes. Sometimes with a stroke one side of your body slumps to one side & and the muscles start to atrophy & well…

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    So now Mrs Mom & “Victimized” Daughter Kelly gone now attempt to up and capitalize off the scandal..FOH!

  • Solstice

    LMMFAO but the stomach alone can’t have a stroke Vonn. I maybe under the influence of these herbal ? remedies but I swear that’s how I read it ?????!!!!

  • disqus_IyEJdAN9NX

    Why Drea look like that? Her lips, her clothes, and her hair is never done. She spends all that time trying to create baby hair don’t put effort into her clothes. Smh.

  • disqus_IyEJdAN9NX

    Damn!

  • disqus_IyEJdAN9NX

    I just posted something similar then scrolled down and read yours. You are absolutely right!

  • disqus_IyEJdAN9NX

    I just want to know where Tevin Campbell is. I want new music from him.

  • Tee Tee

    Why is Drea not on prison?

  • Rhondalousey

    Drea look a mess? What about angel brinks. She look like a fukkin carpet.

  • jujumanji

    Buku Abi looks ridiculous and Da Brat just truly refuses to dress her age. There were a lot of poor fashion decisions happening that nite.

  • Shawty

    Jermaine Dupri is so tiny.

  • Lovers & Friends

    Why can’t The Brat put on a nice suit for once? And maybe do locs or a fade? Still calling yourself The Brat at 50 (you have no legacy) is also silly.
