Not to be outdone by rappers T.I. (who is currently serving time in an Arkansas prison) and Ludacris who each donated $10,000 cash out of their own wallets for flood relief, rappers JD and Nelly plan to get other celebs to donate to flood victims.
Jermaine Dupri, Nelly, & V-103 join forces for a charity celebrity bowling tournament entitled, Atlanta Stand-Up. JD and Nelly have invited all their celebrity friends to come out and bowl (and hopefully open their wallets) tomorrow night (10/1) at Red Carpet Lanes located at 4500 Satellite Blvd., Duluth, GA 30096.
Expected celebrity guests include: Big Boi, Bryan-Michael Cox, Zaytoven, Devyne Stephens, Polow Da Don, Lil’ Ronnie, Nitti, Mike Bigga (formerly Killer Mike), Sammie, Rozelle, NBA superstar Derric Anderson, Grand Hustle Records and many more celebrities, athletes and entertainment professionals.
Doors open at 8PM, and of course the Red Carpet begins at 9PM.
Here's the music video for Whitney's single "I Look To You" off her #1 album by the same title. Whitney will appear on Oprah's show on Monday and Tuesday. I hope she kills this song. She needs a strong performance to dead all the rumors that she's a has-been whose voice is shot.
Michael Jackson's older brother Jermaine is busy trying to salvage his Michael Jackson Tribute concert in Vienna after online media floated rumors that the two biggest names on the lineup won't appear.
According to to Reuters, Jermaine, 54, confirms that Mary J. Blige will be busy at a fashion event in Italy that same day. But he claims she will fly in to perform the second half of the concert, which is scheduled for Sept. 26.
We already know that Chris Brown is a convicted felon who probably can't leave the country without permission from his probation officer. But Jermaine says, "He wants to be here. It's just up to what he's going through with his court case right now. "He's definitely going to be here."
Jackson also denied rumors that his family refuse to throw their full support behind the tribute concert.
"I invited my mother, I invited my brothers and sisters as well," he said during a news conference in London. "I am not happy with the talk being said in the press about the support isn't there. My mother from the very start supported this."
Of course he's referring to TMZ's report that his mother, Katherine Jackson, and brothers question why Jermaine is holding a tribute concert in a city that has no connection to Michael.

Propaganda video from the racists at www.keepmidtownsafe.com who are vehemently opposed to the new Vision Nightclub opening in midtown. The racists who own the website have started an online petition that implies that a hip, urban crowd is synonymous with high crime and violence.
What they are really opposed to is the sight of young, hip black professionals who actually have jobs and can afford to drop a couple of hundred dollars in a black establishment every night. The Atlanta City Council should slam this opposition as race based and without merit!
The racists compiled footage of scenes that took place outside other Atlanta nightspots that cater to the younger crowd, but they attributed the scenes to the Velvet Room which is run by the same owners of the new Vision.
Where is the video footage from outside Opera nightclub, which is around the corner from the new Vision Nightclub but caters to a rowdy, non urban, college crowd? Opera stands to lose business if Vision reopens. So I wouldn't be surprised if the owner themselves were behind the effort to keep the new Vision from opening.
If the midtown residents are so opposed to the new Vision why don't they move out to the quiet suburbs? Don't they know they live in the city traffic and noise are inevitable?
While construction workers removed the boards that had covered the exterior of the new and improved Vision nightclub yesterday, about two dozen disgruntled neighborhood residents voiced their opposition to the club at a neighborhood planning meeting.
At the meeting, the club owners and attorneys outlined their plans for the new Vision nightclub and Lounge, which is about 95% completed. The residents, all white, were opposed to the new club that draws a mostly hip, urban crowd.
Much time and money has gone into making the new Vision the jewel of the South in terms of nightlife. The interior of the old Cotton Club and several storefronts were gutted a year and a half ago to make way for the new club. Those who have seen the inside (including myself) agree that it was worth the wait!
So if all goes well, the new Vision Nightclub and Lounge will open as planned on Labor Day at its new location at the corner of Peachtree and 11th streets.
Attorney DeWayne Martin, who represents the club's owners, said the new club will abide by all noise ordinances. “We will do everything we can to be a good neighbor,” he said.
Martin called the opposition to the club "curious," while noting that there are other clubs -- such as Opera -- which operates in the same area, and no one seems to have a problem with the unruly crowds that those clubs draw.
