Materialistic Celebrities

Loyal reader Tasheena emailed her thoughts on my post about materialistic celebrities.

I agree with you 100% about these celebrities flaunting their wealth and not giving back to their people. I refuse to buy an album of someone who constantly brags on their record about how many chicks, cars, jewels, and how much money they have. I am not gonna use my hard earned money that I had to work my lil 9-5 for to buy ya CD only to hear you brag about how much money you have when I am barely making it in this economy. Shame on her and the others who brag about their wealth to their fans and their are even some who can't even stop to sign an autograph for the same people who support their brand.

    Keri Hilson tweet

    Lately, celebrities have begun leaving messages for me in my Direct Message inbox on Twitter.com. Normally I don't share my DMs with the public, but in this case I will because singer Keri Hilson thinks she's slick.

    Yesterday morning Keri tweeted this on her Twitter timeline: "It's nice when your hard work affords you the luxury of doing whatever you want, whenever you want. That's the goal, right?"

    I responded by tweeting: "Wrong. The goal is to enrich the lives of others, not your own."

    Keri Hilson

    Embattled singer/songwriter Keri Hilson walked the red carpet before performing at Pure Nightclub inside Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV, on Sunday (Mar 24). The Atlanta native blasted her followers on Twitter.com for harassing her after Beyonce blacklisted her throughout the industry. Hilson's career took a nosedive when studio technicians and producers who are loyal to Bey refused to work with her. Her official DJ (DJ Mars) says she's a sweetheart and a joy to work with. Hopefully things will turn around for her.

    Keri Hilson Dissed Beyonce

    Poor Keri Hilson. The singer/songwriter's career took a nosedive after she dissed singer Beyonce on a leaked track that never saw the light of day. Everyone in the industry knows not to try Beyonce who is so well-connected that she upstaged the president of the United States at his own Inauguration!

    Once Beyonce put the word out to studios and music producers not to work with the Atlanta native, Keri found it difficult to even book studio time.

    Keri Hilson

    There's a light at the end of the tunnel for singer Keri Hilson who was blacklisted in the music industry by Beyonce.

    Wilhelmina Models has signed Hilson to an artist management contract, the firm's PR company announced today. The contract calls for Wilhelmina Models to "explore and develop fashion and beauty endorsement, editorial and licensing opportunities for the 5’9” chart-topping beauty."

    This is good news for the gorgeous singer, who made the mistake of dissing Beyonce on a track that was never officially released.

    They say that pop singer Rihanna is being pushed by her mentor Jay Z to be the face of a new chain of burlesque themed nightclubs. Rihanna and her bestie, Melissa, partied at the swanky Mahiki nightclub until 4:30 am last night.


    Over the weekend, Keri Hilson along with Cat Deely of "So You Think You Can Dance" was invited to a private dinner at Neiman Marcus...

    I don't know how many times I have to repeat myself: stay off of social networking sites if you're a celebrity with no impulse control (or common sense).

    Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson is having a bad week. First, she butchered the National Anthem by forgetting the words during halftime of the Lakers/Hawks game on Wednesday. Then last night, on her Twitter.com account, Keri insulted her own mother in response to a tweet from a moron that she should have ignored.

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with the social networking site Twitter.com, Keri reposted (retweeted) a tweet from an idiot, and then she added her own words to the tweet, which are preceded by the arrow.

    I don't know if Keri and her mom get along, but she didn't have to go there. Would you call your own mother a b*tch knowing that the world is watching? A better question would be, why do celebrities feel the need to lower themselves to the standards of a moron's by responding to ignorance with ignorance?

    Janet Jackson, who thrilled fans with her Michael Jackson tribute on the VMAs, attended Marc Jacob's fashion afterparty at Hiro's nightclub in downtown Manhattan last night.

    Singer Toni Braxton looked quite Lil Kim-mish at the Marc Jacobs Fashion Show after party in NYC last night.

    Pseudo singer Ciara attended the Marc Jacobs Fashion Show afterparty at Hiro's in NYC last night wearing the ugliest boots I've ever seen.

    Actress LisaRaye was spotted out & about in Beverly Hills, CA yesterday wearing all white from head-to-toe. White is obviously LisaRaye's favorite color since that's all she wears. Maybe she has flashbacks to a time when she was once virginal and pure, lol. Coincidentally, Miss LisaRaye will be landing in Atlanta this afternoon. She's in town on business, including a paid appearance at an area nightclub. Make that money, girl!

    R&B singer Usher with wifey #2 Def Jam exec Grace Miguel vacationing somewhere. Don't let Chilli trick y'all into believing she and Usher are getting back together. She has a new reality show coming out. It's called a publicity stunt.

    Pseudo singer Keri Hilson, right, attended the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 Fashion Show at the Tent during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week yesterday. Next to her is industry exec Vashti Kola (Pharrell's ex).

    Would you wear this on your foot? Notice I typed "on your foot" since there isn't anything under your foot. That's right, the model is barefoot. Does this make any sense? I know, I know, fashion -- as with art, is subjective and based on personal taste. But anyone who spends money on these... air sandals, is an idiot.

    These are the hawtest bags ever! Why don't I sever see celebrities rocking them I wonder?

    In this YouTube video, a multitude of R&B and rap stars from Brandy to Keri Hilson ask the question "Who is Ester Dean?" Please don't think that I'm only posting this video because Ester is a perfect example of dark chocolate couverture. I honestly think the girl is talented.

    Thanks to loyal reader Fairley M. of UMusic for the video link!

    A rough looking Halle Berry took in a WNBA basketball game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles yesterday. She's definitely seen better days. The WNBA players looked more feminine than she did.

    I'm only posting this pic because Monica is in it.

    Could one-hit wonder Cassie be the next Rihanna? Only in her dreams. Cassie stepped out last night to attend the New York screening of "The September Issue" with her man Sean Combs (though they walked in separately). Did I tell you that Cassie's family and friends have no clue why she's with a man old enough to be her uncle?

    Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson covers Complex magazine, and we're not sure why. Does she have a hit single out and we don't know about it?

    It must be the sandals which are arguably the hawtest things on the cover! The gladiator sandals are made by Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain. They retail for $597 but they're sold out everywhere.

    Pop singer/fashion icon Rihanna and actress Lindsay Lohan think those sandals are hawt also. They can't get enough of them, though I'm going to have to ask Rihanna to give her gladiators a rest. Wear something else, sweetie.

    According to Ryan Cameron of the popular Ryan Cameron Show on V-103, Keri Hilson is set to play Usher's love interest in the video for the first official track off his as yet untitled CD.

    The track, "Love in This Club" featuring Young Jeezy, is produced by Polow Da Don and currently sits at #19 with a bullet on the charts.

    They say Usher's wife, Tameka Foster Raymond, is directing the video.

    Okay I'm kidding! But I'm sure she'll be on the set.
