Struggling R&B singer Trey Song decided to come for me over the weekend on Twitter.com after I wrote a tweet congratulating him on his apparent win during the BET Hip Hop Awards which took place here in the ATL over the weekend.
It seems that one of my readers pulled a fast one on me by emailing me to say that Trey won the "BET Best One-hit-wonder Award." After tweeting a congratulatory message to Trey on Twitter, I checked with BET, and as it turns out, there is no such award.
Just as I was about to delete the offending tweet -- and issue an apology to Mr. Song, the same reader emailed me to say that Trey was "going in" on me on the social microblogging site.
In response to my tweet (which as I said was tweeted in error), Trey mobilized his half-million strong fan base of followers on Twitter.com to make my face a trending topic on Twitter.com and Google.com. I was ridiculed and disrespected by total strangers for hours on Twitter.com until my face finally stopped trending.
I am puzzled as to why Trey didn't mobilize his 500,000 (mostly unemployed and broke) Stans on Twitter to buy his most recent album, which debuted at #3 on the charts with a measly 131K copies sold. To date, Trey's CD is nowhere near going gold.
I was also clueless as to why Trey would come at me on Twitter over what was obviously an error. Then my friend informed me that Trey might be butt hurt by my constant references to his (alleged) down low lifestyle. But how can that be when I've never gone into any specific details about his sexual exploits with other industry men?
For years, the entire industry has been whispering that Trey takes it up the rear and gladly returns the favor. But I never mentioned the baseless gossip since we here at Sandrarose.com hold ourselves to a higher standard than other blogs.
In fact, from what I understand, Trey's label sank a lot of cash into remaking his soft cupcake image, in part, because of the rampant gay rumors.
They even paid a celebrity blogger to manufacture a laughable faux relationship with the struggling singer. But, lol, nobody in their right minds believed it.
Speaking of said blogger, I'm told she at first balked at the chance to help remake Trey's image, but whatever they offered her must have been too good to refuse. She can't stand the punk as you can clearly see from the following email that she sent to an industry exec (please note the date the email was sent):

Oh trust me, you don't want to get to a point where other bloggers are talking about you.
I should know. Um who's jealous of trey songz? lol. i can't....he is a nobody
Yea you are not lying about "more fake people which I can't stomach".Womp womp!
Yea twitter is fun once you figure it out. you'll be addicted in no time. just you watch!
And to those who think this email is fake, I have the email with the headers in its original form, not a copy. Of course, it could be that she thought Trey was a "nobody" until she met him. But it's interesting to see what she thought about him until he started kissing her ass.
It will take Trey a hot minute (depending upon how dumb he is) to figure out that he was used for blog hits. But then again, he used her too, right?
Oh, by the way, the person she sent this email to originally DID NOT forward the email to me. I want to make that clear! Let's just say I have my ways of getting information.
Moving right along...
