Floyd Mayweather emptied two Louis Vuitton bags full of cash into the crowd at a packed Dreamz nightclub in Atlanta last night. The IRS estimates about $30,000 was thrown.

Tonight Mayweather plans to make it rain even more Benjamin Franklins when he joins Jermaine Dupri, Josh Smith of the Hawks, and Dallas Austin at Club Pure tonight.

I'm sure rainmakers Mayweather and JD will try to outdo each other tonight. As a matter of fact, I'ma put on my disguise so I can be in the house! An estimated $100K will be dropped tonight at Pure!

If you need your bills paid or just need some quick cash for Christmas shopping, you'd better get there early!

Club Pure is located at 2793 Clairmont Rd in Atlanta. Doors open at 9 PM. Call (404) 633-5020 for more info.

Guess which Obama wrote the following poetry titled "Underground":

1. Sasha Obama
2. Malia Obama
3. Barack Obama

Under water grottos, caverns

Filled with apes

That eat figs.

Stepping on the figs

That the apes

Eat, they crunch.

The apes howl, bare

Their fangs, dance . . .

If you guessed Barack Obama wrote that poetry, you are correct! :)

Obama was a 20-year-old student at Occidental College when he wrote "Underground."

Isn't he talented? :)

The same artists who helped kill the music industry turned out to bid a fond farewell to the last bastion of music TV dominance: MTV's TRL.

Beyonce, Sean Combs and 50 Cent performed live during the "Total Finale Live" taping at the MTV studios in Times Square in NYC yesterday.

I simply can't and I won't post any more pictures from the event. I get tired of seeing pics of the same boring artists day in and day out, don't you?

A Mexican newspaper has brushed aside the upcoming elections in America by printing today's papers with the headline 'OBAMA WINS'.

I realize that some of you are too young to remember the last time the mainstream media jumped the gun and incorrectly predicted the outcome of the presidential elections.

So I took the liberty of posting the famous photo of president Truman holding a copy of the Chicago Daily Tribune which boldly announced the wrong winner of the 1948 US presidential elections.

It seems the Chicago Daily Trib staff based their prediction on exit polls (lol). I guess they figured who needs election results when polls are so accurate? :)

The Chicago Daily Tribune newspaper could never live down that embarrassment and the paper went out of business shortly thereafter.

I heard John McCain's staff has already purchased several copies of the Mexican newspaper. Will history repeat itself?

Keyshia Cole celebrated her 27th birthday with family and friends at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills last night.

Keyshia partied in Mr. Chow's upscale, intimate atmosphere with her mom Frankie, new beaux, and celebrity friends Tyrese, Anthony Hamilton and Ne-Yo, who will celebrate his 29th birthday in the ATL this Saturday.

Isn't Keyshia gorgeous? She is literally glowing in these pics!

Thanks to Andrew Scott at ASA PR, and Manny Halley for the pics!

ATL superstars Keyshia Cole and Ne-Yo will celebrate their birthdays in grand fashion at separate parties in Atlanta this weekend.

Last night, Keyshia celebrated her 27th birthday at Mr. Chows in Beverly Hills with good friend Ne-Yo in attendance. Above right is a photo of Ne-Yo leaving Keyshia's party last night.

Check back shortly. I will post pics of Keyshia (and her hot new beaux) at her birthday party!

According to Keyshia's manager Manny Halley, the splashy affair was sponsored by Remy Martin Louis X111 Grande Cognac.

Keyshia will continue her birthday celebration in Atlanta on Saturday night with a private star-studded bash following the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards.

Also Saturday, Ne-Yo will celebrate his 29th birthday with a private Cirque de Soleil-themed party at an undisclosed location.

Happy birthday kids!

After mounting pressure from the media, bloggers, and anxious ticket holders, Janet Jackson finally broke her silence to ensure fans that her tour was still on.

Jackson left a brief message on SayNow.com telling fans she felt well enough to resume her Rock Witchu tour in DC tonight.

A Jackson rep told Et Online that Janet suffered from "a rare form of migraine headache called vestibular migraine, which induces the sensation of vertigo."

In a 53-second message posted last night (10/14) on SayNow.com, Janet said:

"I know you guys have been hearing a lotta, lotta rumors... [that] the tour's been canceled. None of that's true. I'm actually rolling into DC right now to do my first show coming back. I feel a lot better and I want to thank all of you. I really do appreciate the love and the support. And once again, don't believe anything that you hear and you read. The tour is still on."

This comes as welcome news to Janet's hard core fans who bought tickets to Janet's shows not knowing whether Janet would show up.

Janet has the best fans who remain loyal no matter how badly she treats them. She canceled eight shows since being stricken with a mystery ailment at a sound check in Montreal last month.

The string of cancellations led to rampant speculation that Janet was pregnant.

Thanks to loyal readers Jamie, Corey and Simply Me for the tips!

Yes, that's rapper T.I. dressed as a traffic cop directing traffic yesterday on the set of his new film "Bone Deep" also starring the geeky Chris Brown. No doubt T.I.'s experience with law enforcement in recent years made him the perfect choice for this role. T.I. will be in town all next week for the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards taping on Oct. 18 at the Atlanta Civic Center.

Michelle Obama waves at paparazzi as she leaves the Time Warner building in NYC. Michelle was a guest on CNN's Larry King Live last night. Once again we ask, why isn't Michelle running for president instead of her husband who, I'm told, sought the advice of a speech coach recently to help him lose his annoying "uh" tic?

Even Michelle says she focuses intently on Barack's words to make sure she understands what he's attempting to convey. You don't believe me? Read on.

When Larry asked whether she was offended when John McCain called Barack Obama "that one" during the presidential debate, Michelle responded:

"No. No. I have to say that, you know, in these debates, I am so focused on what Barack is saying, you know, and how he is, you know, phrasing his words. And I’m really trying, you know, to listen to the substance of what he’s saying to, you know, make sure that I understand what’s going on..."

Well, if that don't beat all. It looks like Michelle needs to make an appointment with the speech coach herself, lol. :)

Sean "Diddy" Combs will be in Atlanta today to celebrate 10 years of his Sean John Collection at Macy's Lenox Square. Sean was spotted at a Madonna concert in NY on Tuesday with his left arm in a sling. Word is Sean had "minor surgery" on his arm which could mean anything knowing this guy. Sean is also scheduled to have dinner with industry friends at his Justin's restaurant, and later tonight he will lift Ciroc and Patron bottles at the Velvet Room. Ladies free all night.

I received a few emails tonight from readers alerting me to the fact that this track appeared on 2Pac's posthumous album, Pac's Life, released in 2006. Just a few minutes ago, I spoke with Manny Halley, Keyshia's manager who explained that the song was never released as a single. Here's what he said:

"It was never a single. It was just a album cut that we did for him... We didn't want to lose a hit record. We're going to drop all the big singles with it, but we wanted to keep 2Pac and Keyshia because they never made it a single. So we made it a single."
--- Manny Halley, Imani Ent. Group

Much love to Keyshia Cole's management for Blessing SR.com with Keyshia's first single off her new album which drops December 16th!

Normally I don't get this excited over new music, but we're talking about Keyshia Cole and the legendary 2Pac Shakur! The single is titled "Play Ya Cards Right" and it is HAWT! :)

SR.com readers get to hear it right here first before it hits the airwaves! Did I say it is HAWT!

Keyshia will shoot the music video for her new single in L.A. tomorrow. Then she jets back to Atlanta just in time to attend her star-studded 27th birthday party on October 15 and the BET Hip Hop Awards on Oct. 18 at the Atlanta Civic Center.

A Superstar never rests!

As you know, the Season premiere of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is tomorrow night (10/7) on Bravo network (check your local listings).

Tomorrow night, the 'Housewives' will be on hand at a private screening party which takes place at an undisclosed location. It's expected to be packed so if you have an invite, you'd better get there early. I'm sure seating is on a first come, first served basis.

As you know only two of the cast members are actually married. The rest are either sleeping with other women's men or single. Hey, this is Atlanta.

I'm only familiar with two of the cast members, Sheree and Lisa. So I'll share a little of what I know about them.

Sheree Whitfield

Sheree Whitfield is the standout among the cast -- mainly because she has a publicist who is working overtime to make sure you know who her client is. Sheree has three children, two with ex-husband, former NFL player Bob Whitfield. Her oldest child is a college student.

I heard some not so nice things about Sheree Whitfield over the weekend -- most of which I won't mention since it's gossip and you know I don't go there. But let's just say that Sheree has almost as many enemies in Atlanta as I have. That could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you look at it.

Anyway, you know the story -- she caught her husband Bob cheating. Actually I'm told he was brazen enough to bring his women home and introduce them to Sheree as clients (he has a recording studio) or simply friends. I'm told Sheree had enough of that after a few years of dealing with the infidelity (yes, I was yawning at this point).

I mean, she was married to a football player in Atlanta. What did she expect?

While in Paris, France for Fashion Week yesterday, singer Usher dropped about 20K on hand tailored Italian suits. Usher stopped by Dsquared2 for a fitting with fashion designers Dan and Dean who will be creating the suits for Usher's upcoming "Ladies Only Tour." According to That B!tch, tickets for Usher's tour are going for $100 a pop. If you can spare $150 in today's tight economy, you can go backstage to meet the crooner himself. Hey, desperate times calls for desperate measures.


Singer Mario took DC school children on a field trip to the Nationals stadium today. It would have been nice if he got a little closer to the kids for a group shot.

He's not a celebrity, but he will be when he shows off his new Bart Simpson tattoo to his kindergarten class come Monday. Why is this little boy cheesing and grinning, but tough guys like Jermaine Dupri scream in pain when they get a tattoo? Tattoos can't be as bad as these soft rappers claim if a 3-year-old can stand it.

As some of you may know, Tyler Perry is throwing an A-list Grand Opening Bash this weekend for his new movie studio which officially opens today (10/3).

Tyler Perry Studios is located behind Magic Johnson theaters in the Greenbrier Mall area.

The studio actually opened last year, but Perry decided to expand the facility without obtaining the proper permits from the city.

After a little back and forth with the city and some bad press in the local rag, the revamped studio will host the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Will and Jada Smith, and Tyler's "fiancee" Taraji P. Henson, at a grand bash tomorrow night that I'm not invited to.

Normally I don't care if I'm not invited to some foo foo industry party. But I was desperate to see my girl Jada Pinkett (I hear she's family).

So I swallowed my pride and called the studio yesterday to get my name on the guest list. But the reaction from Tyler's peeps was not what I expected. I was hung up on not once, but twice! How unprofessional!

Yes, I write some things about Tyler that he might not like. But bad press is to be expected when a star lives a down low lifestyle and lies about it. Is a blogger like myself supposed to just ignore the facts? Plus, am I lying about anything I write about him?

Anyway, the Writers Guild of America filed a complaint against Tyler Perry yesterday and plans to picket outside his party tomorrow night. At least the picketers will get to see Jada if I won't.

Jeff Hermanson, an assistant executive director for the Writers Guild, filed the complaint because Perry fired four writers based out of Los Angeles. The WGA citing unfair labor practice in its charges filed with the National Labor Relations Board, claimed the four were fired unjustly and that Payne's company bargained in bad faith.

But Perry's attorney, Matt Johnson, said that the four were fired because of poor work performance.

This might be true because the 'Payne' series initially received terrible reviews from the viewing public due to the show's wack jokes.

The Writers Guild had been negotiating with representatives of Mr. Perry's studio since April, Mr. Hermanson said. He said that the writers – Kellie Griffin, Christopher Moore, Teri Brown-Jackson and Lamont Ferrell – had sought a union contract because they felt they were underpaid and lacked benefits.

Turks and Caicos First Lady LisaRaye will dedicate her upcoming birthday celebration to raise funds for Turks and Caicos residents who are victims of Hurricane Ike.

On Sunday, Sept. 7, Hurricane Ike roared through Grand Turk island with category 4 winds causing extensive damage to about 80% of the homes. Hundreds of residents took refuge in shelters and many were left homeless.

"They got hit really, really bad," Premier Michael Misick said Sunday morning. "A lot of people have lost their house, and we will have to see what we can do to accommodate them."

Misick's wife LisaRaye who is separated from her husband and living in California, is doing her part to help the residents. According to LisaRaye's publicist Lynn Jeter, LisaRaye will celebrate her birthday at The Area Nightclub, 643 N. La Cienega Blvd. West Hollywood, on Tuesday, September 23.

Atlanta, get ready: Karrine Steffans, noted author and master of oral ministrations - not to mention the type of woman your grandmother warned you to keep your man away from -- is moving to Atlanta!

I don't think y'all heard me... I said Karrine Steffans - is - MOVING - TO - Atlanta.

If you Atlanta chicks thought fighting over the few available scraps of single men was bad enough -- it's about to get much worse.

Men -- single and taken -- are already talking about Karrine and her party at Studio 72 this weekend.

I was at a record label yesterday and the men were talking in code around me. But the code was so easy to decipher, a baby could crack it. Of course I teased them unmercifully once I figured out who they were talking about. One label exec cracked that he wasn't thinking about no Karrine Steffans -- until I told him I had her cell number. Then he quickly dropped his macho act and asked, "do you really?"

Men are so EASY here! Separating them from their wallets will be a piece of cake for a seasoned jump off like Karrine. I almost feel sorry for them.... almost. :)

Much thanks to Zedi of Dimewars.com for the link!

Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has named Hillary Clinton the headline speaker for the second night of the Democratic Convention later this month in Denver.

Clinton will speak on Tuesday, August 26 - the 88th anniversary of U.S. women's right to vote.

This announcement is key for two reasons: 1) the man (or woman) Obama selects as his running mate will speak on the first night of the Democratic Convention. And 2) this shuts the door on any talk of Obama naming Clinton as his running mate.

Yeah, I know, choosing Clinton would sooth the savage beasts within the media -- and a lot of blacks are praying that he will pick Clinton, too. But hopefully Obama is not that stupid.

Clinton is a snake in the grass waiting for an opening to strike. By giving Clinton the podium on the second night of the Convention, Obama closes that opening.

Disgraced rapper Rick Ross is in Miami stuntin' like he isn't the biggest fraud in Hip Hop. Rick Ross' Be Out Day is in full swing today in Carol City, a suburb of Miami, Florida. Recording artists like Sammie (I know, lol), Trina, DJ Khaled, and Trick Daddy are confirmed to attend. Be Out Day is an annual charity event (now in its second year) designed to assist parents and students in preparing for the school year.

Rick Ross (who is such a liar he won't even admit he stole his name) and his celebrity friends will hand out free backpacks and school supplies to underprivileged children. The kids will also get good food, health screenings, music, and family-friendly entertainment.

There will also be a presentation of the Rick Ross Charities, Inc Scholarship Award.


The Jackson 5 will reunite next month in Los Angeles where will be honored with a lifetime achievement prize at BMI's Urban Awards on September 4.

A BMI spokeswoman said all the Jackson brothers except Michael have confirmed they will attend the ceremony at Beverly Hills' Wilshire Theater. The group will not perform. Instead, a star-studded collection of music acts will pay tribute to the band with a medley of the brothers' greatest hits.

The Jackson 5 were the first band ever to have their first four singles ("I Want You Back", "ABC", "The Love You Save", and "I'll Be There") reach #1 on the pop charts. The J5 was also the first black teen idols to cross over and appeal to white audiences. (Source)

Jermaine Dupri's team celebrate their win at the So So Def Summerfest Celebrity basketball game yesterday. Photo: Real Talk NY

On Friday night, a single popping sound heard during Jermaine Dupri's "Welcome To Atlanta" party in Decatur was transformed into a man down situation with multiple wounded and gunmen "shooting up the club."

Every media outlet in Atlanta reported wildly varying accounts of the popping sound. But not one media outlet got the story right.

A NY Daily News reporter reached out to me yesterday to get the accurate story. I told her the popping sound was just a speaker malfunctioning. But in the end, she decided to go with the more melodramatic story provided by WSB 2 Action News which reported that "three people" were treated for gunshot wounds at local area hospitals. I guess my account wasn't gory enough.

Celebrity blogger Necole Bitchie at least reported what actually happened without sensationalizing the story like the "real journalists" did.

By yesterday afternoon, the casualty list had been downgraded to just one security guard who was "grazed on the elbow" by a bullet. That story is even more ludicrous than the first one.

How does a gunman fire into a crowded club - from a distance of a few feet - and only one person is "grazed" on the elbow? Where did the bullet go after that? OR was it one of those magic bullets that turns corners and avoids hitting everyone in the room only to magically disappear into thin air?

Here's Webster's dictionary definition of a "graze":

    "to touch or rub something lightly, or so as to produce slight abrasion, in passing..."

That's right, "a slight abrasion" - you know, like the type of scratch that one would receive in a crowd where there's pushing and shoving going on?

Do you really believe the police would allow a party to continue until 4 AM if someone had been shot inside the club?

I agree with the inside source who surmised that these wild shoot-em-up stories are the work of individuals bent on "sabotaging" Jermaine Dupri's Summerfest weekend.

If you recall, there was also a "shooting" at the So So Def Summerfest Finale party last year at a now defunct club in Decatur. No charges were ever filed in that "shooting" either.

By the way, tonight's So So Def Grand Finale party is at the Velvet Room. But don't worry, the only sound coming out of the Velvet Room's high end audio speakers will be music.

Comments Off on Monica, Still Standing: Interview

Fellow celebrity blogger Style Razzi hipped me to an exclusive Monica interview conducted by StraightFromTheA.com's ATLien, who is a member of this community. Monica touches on her life as a mother and soon-to-be-wife and she talks about the night her baby daddy Rocko proposed to her.

But Mo had a few words to say about a message left on a blogger's voicemail that was quickly turned into a video viral sensation (the video received 25,000 views and sparked interest from media types like Wendy Williams who wants Mo on her new TV show).

Wow…a video? I had no idea it was THAT serious! It’s not that I even care that it was posted on all those sites cause I don’t. I said what I said because I felt that the truth had to be told. No matter how small the lie. I reached out because I wanted to clear up any misconceptions about my relationship with Beyonce. Any time you can stop a lie you do yourself a favor by speaking the truth.

Monica stated that she personally did not even see the original post that implied she was beefing with Beyonce…but her family and friends notified her about it. For the record, she didn’t even mention Beyonce’s name but a few bloggers simply speculated that she was speaking of her. READ MORE...

This party isn't for every one. If you're not a mover or a shaker, this night is not for you. If you don't call the shots, this night is not for you. If you think ballin' is a pick up game of basketball with your boys, this night is not for you.

I hear the vibe of the event is gonna be real LA, you know, red carpet, elite people and slightly bourgeois. Botchey and Pat are kicking it off big this Tuesday (2/5) at 10pm.

UPDATED: Def Jam Chairman LA Reid is in town to attend this party tonight. They say there will be no replacement for Jay Z for months. I think I will stop through the party to get the info straight from the horse's mouth :)

Wednesday's night most memorable and star studded exclusive party known as "The Hollywood Hide Out" has come to an end at the spot that Mr. Plush of Plush Blue Ent and Juan Farmer aka Jebron F. Kennedy from Rowdy Records, made famous - "The Royal Lounge" in Atlanta, GA.

Mr. Plush and Juan Farmer were killing it on Wednesday nights - but it ain't over!

From the expensive cars and stretch limo's, huge stars to the most exclusive parties with entertainers from Nas, Terrance Howard, Tony Rock, Chris Tucker, AKON, Allen Payne, Keyshia Cole, Jermaine Dupri, Young Jeezy, Chingy, Joe Johnson, NSYNC, New Edition, The Dream Listening party, the Glenn Twins Lingerie b-day party with Rich Boy and Slim Thug in attendance, Chris Webber & Evan Ross just to name a few have all been spotted partying with Mr. Plush & Juan Farmer at the Royal on Wednesday nights.

I guess you can say that the Hollywood Hide out just outgrew the Royal Lounge.

The Good news is, the party has been moved to the new, sexy and more spacious spot NOIR Lounge on Peters Street. NOIR has two rooms - an all white room and a separate VIP Lounge and it's right up the street from Royal Lounge on Peter St. Word is, NOIR is now the new spot on Wednesday's starting this Wednesday (1/23) for the grand launching of the Hollywood Hde Out.

This Wednesday's Grand Launching will be hosted by Jermaine Dupri and the entire Def Jam family. Rumor has it Ludacris and Jeezy will also be in the house along with several other major stars.

Don't just hear about it, BE about it!
