Just When You Thought It Was Over

Take a minute to reminisce on The Stinkface. Ah, Ms. Dominique Young is back. Refusing to let the loss of MTV's Making the Band 3 stop her from fulfilling her dreams of being a superstar, Dominique is heating up the studio and shopping for a record deal.

“Now that we’re nine, ten months removed from the situation and I get to look at Danity Kane, I can tell you that I don’t think that my voice, my personality would have fit into that group. I think I was meant to be a soloist. My voice is very unique and raw. With me, there’s no smoke and mirrors. I’m not taking my clothes off. I’m not dancing around on stage or anything. I’m just me, singing about what I know and love, and that’s it.” [ VIBE ]

I knew she wouldn't let me down. I hope she lifts a hind leg, and pisses all over Diddy and Danity Lame. They make my teeth itch.

Check out Dominique's Myspace page here.

Letter of Recommendation

Dear Capitol Records,

Get these chicks some stylists on the double. They look like hot garbage.


Game's Promo Pics

I find this kind of funny. The Game's sophomore LP was supposedly the most anticipated album of the year when he wasn't saying much a few months ago. Now that he's actually promoting it, nobody really gives a sky blue fuck. I mean, do you? I for one won't be purchasing this album unless there is some sort of miraculous event where $15 just happens to fall from the sky and land on my front doorstep. Even then I'd probably just save it for gas.

.. New Music ..

Here's a new track from our long forgotten crack-slinging Harlemite, Lumidee. Come on. You remember that one-hit wonder, "Uh-Oh (I'll Never Leave)" don't you?. Okay, good. After some boring controversy and a mixtape nobody listened to, Lumidee is fighting her way back onto your mp3 players, with a new record called "Like the Wind" featuring Tony Sunshine (the singer from Terror Squad of equal unimportance). You might be suprised to hear Lumi' rapping on this one. Turns out she does that too. Go figure.

Guess Who's Back

Uh, I'm not having this shit. Can someone please summon up a demon and ask it to escort Dennis Rodman's ass back to the pits of hell where he belongs? I'm sure Satan is in need of a bottom bitch by his side.

Beyoncé Speaks On Sasha

“When I feel uncomfortable about something, I tell myself, ‘I’m Sasha, I’m a diva, I’m fierce, I can do it.’ And then I can,” Knowles tells Blender. “Sometimes when Beyoncé slips through, I’m like ‘Hold up, come back!’ Sasha protects me. It’s a good way to keep sane.”

Keep sane? Be', I think you and "Sasha" have been spending way too much time together. The next thing you know she's going to be trying to bust out of your chest onstage during one of those dramatic cunt dance moves. I'll pray that the "two" of you find help.

Rubbing The Blarney Stone

I guess the kindergarten boy booty of America isn't working for Michael Jackson anymore. After leaving the U.S. at the closing of his sex charge acquittal, he allegedly flew to Europe and is making plans of buying a castle in Ireland. Not only will he be moving to the country, but he also hopes to open his own theme park there.

"Michael is deadly serious about this idea,” a source told Ireland’s Daily Mirror. “He loves the whole idea of leprechauns and the magic and myths of Ireland. It would cost around 500 million Euros [about $635 million] to do. He’s always wanted to open his own theme park and he thinks Ireland is the perfect place and it will all be built around the leprechaun theme.”

Let's just hope that Mr. Jackson doesn't go digging for some little kid's pot o' gold on the other side of the Irish rainbow, if you get what I'm saying.

The Boondocks Comic Ends

Today, recently became a bad day for me. No, Bobby and Whitney are not getting back together. While making my daily web surf this morning, I found out that Aaron McGruder's infamous comic strip The Boondocks will be ending on November 26th. *sniff*

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the comic strip, which is currently in reruns, was initially set to return with new material in October but Universal reportedly said that it could not get a commitment from McGruder on when, or if, he would return to work on the strip. [

According to reports, the strip will end in syndication, however the animated series of the same name will return to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim in a few months.

Monkeys Never Die

My favorite little rainforest rapper, O'so Krispie is sliding back onto the entertainment scene with an online reality series called O'so TV. You might remember O'so, whose real name is Tiffany Baker, as the winner from UPN's reality talent search R U The Girl starring TLC. I was wondering what happened to the energetic zoo escapee. Apparently, she has been continuing her career as an Atlanta choreographer, working on an album, attending college, and doing tricks for some random streetwalkers. Oddly enough, I love this chick.

O'so Krispie's website is currently under construction.

.. Quick Question ..

Why the hell was Tyra Banks giving away Vaseline on her talk show's website? Slapping some little dirty looking Swarovski Crystals on the jar doesn't make it anymore precious. People use that stuff to do naughty things, Tyra. Naughty things.

BTW: I wanna wish a Happy Birthday to my homies, Monica & Mike!

Miss Cleo Comes Out

Well, I was hoping Madame Cleo would finally admit that she wasn't a psychic (or Jamaican, fake bitch), but instead she decided to exlcaim to the world that she's proud of her life as a lesbian.

From the late 1990s through 2002, the woman whose real name is Youree Dell Cleomili Harris was a late-night staple who, in a thick Jamaican accent, urged viewers to dial a charge-by-the-minute 900 number to have their fortunes read.

What those viewers didn’t know, and what some members of her own family still don’t know, is that Miss Cleo is a lesbian. Four years after the infomercials were pulled from the air under a cloud of various lawsuits and federal and state investigations, Harris says she has been inspired to come out publicly by a teenage godson.

“He and I started talking when he was concerned about coming out. He was 16. When he made the decision I told him I’d be there to support him 100%, and he embraced [coming out] wholeheartedly,” Harris says. “It’s a different vibe than when I was his age, being raised Catholic in an all-girls boarding school. But he was afraid of nothing, and I thought, I can’t be a hypocrite. This boy is going to force me to put my money where my mouth is.”

Please. Even I figured that out, lady. Tell them your not Jamaican!

.. Bits & Pieces ..

Three Six Mafia Invades L.A.
"Academy Award Winning" rap group Three Six Mafia are at work on their own reality show, Adventures in Hollyhood. The program will follow the Tennessee duo on their conquest to make a larger name for themselves in Hollywood, CA.

More Dipset Violence
Shots were fired after a Jim Jones concert in the wee hours of this Friday morning at a club in Virginia. The blasts left one person dead and three others injured. According to witness' reports, the shooting occured as the club was clearing out after Jim hit the stage. Mutliple shots were fired by several suspects, but no arrests have been made yet. An investigation is currently underway.

Usher Loves NYC
Usher has elongated his run as Billy Flynn in the Broadway production Chicago until October 28th, in order to celebrate his 28th birthday onstage. He is also looking to knock a few record-breakers off of their seats, by attempting to hold a singing note for over 26 seconds during the play. Usher has already become the youngest star to ever play the character of Billy Flynn.

.. Sit Down ..

"I've got the name Moses on my inner right arm. I can relate to this story, as far as leading people out. That's how my boys (the St. Lunatics) and I felt about the St. Louis music scene. (When we hit it big) we felt like we were leading some of the top musical talent out of there, on to broader horizons." -- Nelly on his tattoo of the name Moses.

I was hoping I wasn't going to have to do another "Sit Down" segment anytime soon, but damnit, Nelly messed everything up with this shit. Let me first say that the St. Lunatics may have been broke before you got a deal, but nigga, they weren't slaves and you weren't rescuing them from Pharoah. You just happened to be a nigga who got a bunch of his homeboys recording contracts; as if, everybody doesn't do that. Young Dro, Lloyd Banks, even Cam'ron started off as a nameless entourage member 69'ing gonorrhea infested groupies, and now they're all selling records. Besides, when it boils down to it, none of them Lunatic niggas can rap anyway. So Nelly, do me a favor and leave the Bible out of this, because until you part the Red Sea and drag Murphy Lee's high ass across it, you are simply a nigga whose fuckin' an R&B bitch. Sit your ass down.

New Ciara Single

The Sho'Nuff diva is back and her new album, Ciara: The Evolution, will hit stores December 5th. In her new slow jam, "Promise", Ci-Ci tells us that she's single again (take that Bow Clown!) and looking for someone to cuddle next to on those sweaty Atlanta evenings. The vocals were rather impressive on this record compared to Ciara's other efforts. I'm feeling this and just so you know, I'm single too, Ciara. Come get me.

Ciara - Promise

Trick Daddy Runs Florida

Miami rap veteran, Trick Daddy, has always been known to be an outspoken man. At last month's Ozone Awards, the 305 thug had a few on-stage words for his fellow Floridian rappers, saying, "Let's set this record straight/ Nigga, I run this whole state/ There's only one mayor of Dade/ And y'all niggas is my protégés." The sharp words were a sample from his new single, "Breaker Breaker", off of his upcoming LP, Back By Thug Demand.

Trick has been rumored to be fueding with his labelmate, Rick Ross, lately and the lyrics he spit only added fuel to an uneccesary fire. However, in a recent interview with MTV News, T-Double D denied the allegations.

"A lot of people try to make it seem like that song is about this person or that person. Listen, man. I'm the first [person] that told anybody that Rick Ross was good at what he do ... And one thing about me: I don't sneak dis. So nothing was about Ross or nobody in particular. That was for anybody who didn't think that I ran this whole state, who didn't think I was the Dade County mayor."

He also expressed his frustration with the repetitive nature of today's Hip-Hop music.

"People aren't trying different things with their music ... Remember how when you were little and you'd be crazy about a Snickers bar? But it don't really do nothing for you right now. That's how the albums have been lately to me. I mean, with the exceptions of some."

A Snicker bar, Trick? Jesus...

The Bullshit Times

After The Source's rejects, David Mays and Raymond "Benzino" Scott realized that they weren't getting their beloved magazine back, they started talking about establishing a new one. Unfortunately, the bastards are actually going through with it.

As SOHH previously reported, Mays and Scott have teamed with former VIBE Editor-in-Chief Mimi Valdés to create an entirely new magazine. Hip Hop Weekly has been billed as the world's first weekly entertainment news & celebrity lifestyle publication for readers who identify with hip-hop culture. Covering film, TV, music, fashion, sports and celebrity news, the magazine will also include weekly columns from radio personalities Wendy Williams and Star & Buc Wild. [ source ]

Okay. Dave Mays, Benzino, Wendy Williams, Star, and Buc Wild; these fools are all partnering up to generate the black Enquirer. So, you can expect the publication to be filled with endless pages of hate, lies, more hate, more lies, a bunch of bullshit, and a dash of nonsense.

Hip-Hop Weekly launches on October 16th.


Are you tired of seeing Beyoncé's face everywhere all the time? Do you feel like watching her twirl that weave on-stage again may cause you too go insane? If so, then I have a place for you. Check into the Beyonce Overload Recovery Program.

Honestly, I think someone created this group as a poor attempt to make some Beyoncé haters laugh, point, and continue to hate. I'm a little tired of the world's B'Day fever myself, but don't you think starting a group where people can talk about how much they despise the woman is only adding to the hype? Help me out here.

Jay-Z Shoots His Video

Ashanti Defends Herself

Ashanti made a court testification yesterday stating that she never held money from record producer, Genard Parker. Parker recently filed a lawsuit against the R&B singer claimin that she owes him $2 million for his assistance in the making of her first 3 albums. However, Ashanti says that she and Parker ended their business relationship when he failed to get her a recording contract at 16 years old.

"I wanted to be a singer and the situation that we were currently in I wasn't able to do so, so we were trying to be released," she told jurors in Manhattan Federal Court.

This man needs to just leave Ashanti alone. We all know the bitch doesn't have any money left. Let her enjoy her last few months of fame and fortune, jerk.

Suspicious Kisses

I think there might be a few secret romances going on in the entertainment industry. The 'razzi have been catching some of your favorite celebs slobbing each other down behind the scenes of recent events.

50 Cent was caught recieving a little lip action from lead Pussycat, Nicole Scherzinger, at this year's VMAs in NYC. I don't know what that was about, but I'm praying that the smooch was somehow an innocent one. Nicole is too sexy and smart to be affiliated with Hip-Hop's top gorilla. She can do much better.

Paris Hilton's ho-ish ass decided to give Kanye West's neck some special attention at a Best Dressed party. The funny thing is, all this undercover love was being expressed right behind the back of Kanye's fiancé, Alexis. Then Paris acted all friendly when the wifey showed up seconds later. See, even famous people can be sideline hoes.
This one is very wierd. The picture shows R&B singer, Chili, passionately kissing her son Tron on the lips like she had a mental relapse from the "U Got It Bad" video. I'm going to need her to provide an explanation with the quickness, because this is disturbing.
What are you all thinking? Are these celebrities getting busy off-camera or are these pictures being misinterpreted?

Trina & The Chicken Noodle

You know what, I'm upset about this. Of all the damn songs to remix...anyway, all my fellow Trina fans can definitely prepare for a new album from The Baddest, because when she starts jumping all over remixes, that usually means her new LP is right around the corner. It's called self-promotion. The girl is smart.

I must say I'm pleased that she got on an East Coast record instead of sticking to the South. We really don't need a "Walk It Out" remix at this point.

New So So Def Music

I had to give posting this tremendous thought, because I don't think there is anyone who would jump higher at the opportunity to run this kid over than I would. Regardless, music is music, entertainment is entertainment, and reporting it is what I do. Bow Wow recently took a minute to pull his head out of the yeasty vaginal cavities of his prostitute cronies, and got in the studio to record a new song. With the R&B vocals of the younger yet far taller heartthrob, Chris Brown, a track called "Shorty Like Mine" was slapped together. If you're hoping for a sui generis effort then you'll be quite dissapointed, but if you want to snap yourself to sleep tonight, you're in luck. This is just another silly "Crunk & B" record with some bumping bass accompanied by an 18 year old rapper trying to suck the talent away from Twista. Anyway, I'm sure that no matter what I think, this song will give your local 7th grade girls something to scream and get pregnant to.

Thanks for the tip, Mike

Bow Wow // Shorty Like Mine (f. Chris Brown)

Kelis Throws Nas Suprise Birthday Party

Nas' lovely R&B wifey, Kelis, suprised him last night with an old-school Hip-Hop themed birthday party at Canal Room in NYC. Guests included Slick Rick, Usher, Quest Love, Jim Jones (?), Kwame, and tons of others. Some people rocked their 80's hip-hop wear (i.e. Kangol hats and gold dookie rope chains).

"You are the last one [upholding Hip-Hop]," Dougie Fresh said prophetically to Nas, "We cancelled a [another] show to do this."

The stage was later on blessed by Hip-Hop greats such as, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Bizzy Bee, Monie Love, Just Ice, Dana Dane, and Nasir himself.

What the hell has gotten into Tracy Morgan? Nigga, the world did not need to be introduced to your stretch mark covered beer belly and all that dusty ass armpit hair. Go home!

Ron Artest Shoots Video

Ron Artest of the NBA's Sacramento Kings is planning on shooting a video for his single, "Fever", in Las Vegas this weekend. The track is pulled from is upcoming album, My World, which will feature guest appearances by Mike Jones, DJ Kay Slay, Juvenile, Azzure and others. Athletes turned rappers; I never supported that movement.

In other Artest news, I've been hearing that the baller is going through some extreme baby mama drama. He recently went to court with his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Palma, and filed a motion to gain full custody of their young son, Jeron. Now from what I'm hearing, this case was made out of spite. The old couple had gone through their share of intense fights, including chokes, punches, and death threats. However, according to a close friend of the two, Artest continued to have sex with Jennifer even though he is now married to a woman named Kimisha. Now, when Jennifer found a new man and decided to stop sleeping with Ron, he felt scorned and not only started a custody battle for their son, but he also began to withold Palma's $2,800-a-month housing support.

I just want to hear what this nigga is going to say when the judge asks him what the grounds for his case are.

"Uh, well your honor, that bitch wouldn't give me no pussy. So, I figured what's the point of paying child support when shawty don't wanna fuck. I'm not gettin' nothin' out of it. You feel me?"

New Janet Jackson Video

Janet's latest video, "So Excited", puh-puh-premiered on last night's episode of BET's Access Granted. So, here it is just in case you missed it. Ms. Jackson loves getting naked, doesn't she? Not that I have a problem with that, but damn. I mean, her breasts aren't as enticing as they used to be seeing as how we all know what they look like (well the right one anyway). Regardless, the video is very impressive in my eyes. Some of the costumes and settings seem a bit reminiscent from her old joints, but the choreography was crazy and the special effects added a unique flare. Plus, we only had to see Khia's ass a good three times, and it was only her head. I like this one.

Janet Jackson's album 20 Years Old will be in stores on September 26th.

Trina @ Olympus Fashion Week

It looks like The Diamond Princess has trimmed a couple pounds off her waistline. She's looking pretty good, except for the 45 layers of swap meet eyeshadow she has on her damn face.

.. Nigga of the Month ..

I was going to name Ricky Williams the Nigga of the Month , but when I saw this I had a change of heart. September's top nigga is Ann Iverson, mother of the NBA All Star MVP, Allen Iverson. I don't even know what to say about this one. A.I.'s mom is ballin'. Congratulations, Ann!

Whitney Files For Divorce

Whitney Houston has filed for divorce from her husband Bobby Brown, her publicist told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Publicist Nancy Seltzer declined to reveal where or when Houston filed the divorce papers, and said the singer had no statement to make.

"I can just confirm that she has filed for divorce," Seltzer said.

Houston and Brown, who married in 1992, have had a sometimes tumultuous marriage, and rumors of their breakup have surfaced often over the years.

The couple have one child, 13-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
[ Source ]

This is kind of disappointing because they were the perfect dysfunctional couple. I know we all loved seeing them dance, sniff, and sweat together, but it's about damn time. I mean, the world knew this shit was gonna happen, we just didn't know it would take so damn long. Kudos to Bob and Whit for sticking it out all these years. I'm doing the Cabbage Patch in your honor.

New Cassie Video

Cassie's new video for "Long Way 2 Go" premiered on TRL recently. You can see she used her musical climb on as a gag for this one. Although this video is much better than her first, I'm still not feeling her. When she learns how to sing, let me know.

Excuses, Excuses...

This is what 50 Cent had to say about Olivia's album Behind Close Doors never being released.

"Because we didn't want to drop the album just to drop it. We want to drop a successful one. And we got a certain blueprint that we follow to make sure we know that the artist is fully, fully seasoned. And she's coming to that point, so her album wil be dropping this year too."

In the words of my boy Riley Escobar, whatever nigga! Everybody keep in mind that he has said Olivia's album will be out this year. I'll see you on December 31st, bitch.

New Rihanna Video @ AOL

Rihanna's new video for her single "We Ride" is now on AOL Music's First View. Check it out here. The Bajan Beauty is looking good in this one. I'm not too disappointed. Oh, but just for the record, I hate this song. Okay, I'm done.

Lil Fizz Doesn't Like...

First of all, I'd like to say that Lil' Fizz was expected to open the UCP concert yesterday, but was a no-show. What's that about, man? Anyway, on today's episode of 106 & Shit, Fizzo stopped by to premiere his new video for "Fluid". As he introduced it he said, "There's a new Mr. 106 & Park in town." As even I know, Bow Wow was dubbed Mr. 106 & Park quite a while back, so that comment got me to thinkin'. Also, Fizz has a line in his new single that goes,

Right, and even better
I be in Atlanta Green Phantom,
eatin dinner wit Ciara (woah)

We're all aware of who Ciara used to date and when Rocsi asked Fizz about this, he responded, "I just think she's hot and I wanted to shout her out." Riiight. I have a feeling Lil' Fizz isn't a Bow Wow fan. Hmmm.

NFL Kickoff Concert @ South Beach

Here are a couple flicks from yesterday's NFL Kickoff Concert featuring Bad Boy Entertainment's main artists. I wasn't there for the show, because it was free and Miami people who like their asscheeks without bullets in them usually don't attend free events in that area. Besides, I had to go to the Chris Brown show. I haven't heard anything about the concert because my friends and I share the same feelings and none of them went either, but I'm sure I can make a good guess of what happened. Yung Joc did his motorcycle dance, Danity Kane ran around looking like kids with A.D.D., Cassie tried to lip-sync and started to hyperventilate, and Diddy did The Shuffle. How exciting.
