John Legend - Heaven [ video ]

Umm...I don't really like this song. The chorus bugs the hell out of me. However, I really like the visuals in the video. The setting is unorginal, but still satisfying and I love the shots of the women posing in a sort of classic style of 16th century art. Nice effort by John, but it's kind of like an attempted Kanye video without the rap.

Thanks Mike!

Dwayne Wade @ GQ Party

Mokai held a party today to celebrate the release of GQ Magazine's All Star Sports Issue. Of course, Dwayne Wade rocked the cover this year, therefore most of the liquored up madness was revolved around him. Dude is gaining a lot of national ass kissing. I hope D.Wade doesn't think that just because he's hopscotching around in 95% of the South Beach coochie here, that he can get all big-headed. I don't want to hate you, man.

Consider Yourself Dumped

I can't believe I'm stooping this low...

Is Hip-Hop's supreme power couple about to fall apart? I can only hope so. After the leak of Jay-Z's new controversial track
"Lost Ones", people are starting to believe that he is using the record to dump his private pickle kisser, Beyoncé. On the second verse of "Lost Ones" Fraggle spits,

I don’t think it’s meant to be, B/For she loves her work more than she does me/And honestly, at 23?/I would probably love my work more than I did she/So we ain’t WE, it’s me and her/Cause what she prefers over me is work/And that’s where we defer/So I have to give her/free time even if it hurts/So breathe, Mami, it’s deserved/You’ve been put on this Earth/to be all you can be like the Reserves/And me?/My time in this Army is served/So I have to allow she her time to serve/The time’s now for her, in time she’ll mature/And maybe we can be WE again/like we were/Finally, my time’s too short to share/And I ask her now?/It aint fair So, yeah, she lost one.

Sounds like a really creative break-up letter, if ever there was one. What's wrong Jay? Are Bey's head skills that bad?

.. Lyric Check ..

T to the A to the S T E Y girl you tasty/T to the A to the S T E Y girl you tasty/D to the E to the L I C I O U S/to the D to the E to the, to the, to the, hit it Fergie ~ - Fergalicious

Father God, give me strength.

There is no "E" in "Tasty", Will. Do you know how stupid you sound when you say that? Everytime I hear that damn song, I wanna grab you by the throat and holler "lose your breath, bitch!". It's bad enough that you have Fergie swagger-jacking JJ Fad. Now all the 3rd grade spelling bee washouts in America are going to want lynch your dumb ass.

Play Me: Lady Sovereign - Love Me or Hate Me (remix feat. Missy Elliott)

I can always count on my girl Misdemeanor to transform an annoying record into something worth listening to. Fank you, Missy - Fank you very much.

Mariah's Not A Diva!

Mariah Carey's manager, Benny Medina, is claiming that her Hong Kong concert was not cancelled due to the singer's diva-like attitude, but because a certain tour promoter did not pay Carey money owed to her.

Yeah, right. I suppose you're also going to try to get me to believe that she wipes her own ass after bathroom breaks. Please.

The Kiss To End Them All

spotted at C+D
Umm...I need a minute to sit with my thoughts on this one.
The music industry has been throwing gay accusations at Lil' Wayne and Baby for quite a while now, and although both rappers claim that the rumors are all false, this picture is not helping their case. Now, I have two of my comrades with me who say that the picture is obviously fake - they think it is basically a Photoshop crop trick. That could be true, but I'm still on the fence, because these two have had way too many insiders calling them out for me to just pass this up as silly gossip. If 20 different people, who hardly know one another, are saying that Weezy and Baby are intimate, then they must be backstage pickle kissers. If this photo is fake, then somebody needs to provide the media with the real version.

Ciara - Promise Video

This is a nice video from Ciara. She looks very mature and extremely sexy. I love the sort of darkness in the different shots and, of course, the choreography was on point. I was really impressed with the microphone dance. The only thing that continues to get to me is the amount of Aaliyah's influence she shows in her performance. It's not bad, but it's not good either. What do you think?

New York's Favorite Flavor

Has New York really moved from Rocky Road to Vanilla? That's certainly what some people are starting to believe. There have been suspicious looking photos found on the web of Tiffany and some big burly white dude all hugged up over and over again. The guy kind of looks like the dimwitted little brother of an Italian mob boss named Joey. Defense is saying that this man is New York's manager, which I can believe, but let's be honest - if the girl slept with Flavor Flav, I think every man is eligible for some of that.

Extra, Extra: Did you know that New York owns over 2, 000 black Barbie dolls? Explains a lot, doesn't it? I was wondering why all of her Myspace pictures look like Photoshop schematics for plastic surgery adventures.

.. Sit Down ..


First of all, nobody really knows (or cares) what you're talking about. Just so everybody is on the same page, Ryan Leslie was recently accused of creating fraudulent YouTube accounts in an attempt to create a larger buzz for his lame little channel, RyanLeslieTV. I'm sure the rumors are true, and now he's using the drama to create an even larger buzz for his dumbass channel. I don't think he has the right to even be speaking to me. The only artist he's made a career for is Cassie and, well I don't need a blowjob right now, so she's not really a neccessity.

This video is basically 4 minutes and 16 seconds of blah. This nigga must have ADHD or something, because all that bouncing and sliding around is so irritating.

Cheri Likes To Licky

I really stopped giving a rat's ass about what happened to Cheri Dennis, because...she's signed to Bad Boy, so I didn't expect to see much of her for long. Apparently, she's been out of the studio and the closet, because according to VC, Ms. Dennis loves the ladies. Yes, the gay celebrity rumors spring up all the time and a lot of the stories aren't true ( except for Big Tigga, Chingy, and Da Brat. Ya'll gay as hell! ), but a close friend of VC was allegedly hit on by Cheri at two different industry events. People also claim that Cheri attends a lot of gay clubs, parties, and parades.

So, is she a top? The girl does look like she'll shred some panties and get grizzly if you give her a chance.

Diana May Ruin Dreamgirls

Hollywood insiders are afraid that singing legend Diana Ross is planning to spoil Beyonce Knowles' chances of winning an Oscar for the film 'Dreamgirls.' Industry insiders said that since Ross reportedly dislikes the new musical, which is loosely based on her career with 'The Supremes,' she might be planning a subtle negative campaign to ruin the film's Academy Award chances.

Los Angeles Times' Hollywood insider Tom O'Nell has claimed that if Ross publicly disapproves of the film, in which Knowles plays her character, she could create the kind of negative publicity that can turn Oscar voters against the film. "A longtime friend and colleague (of Ross) tells me that Miss Ross hates Dreamgirls because she feels like she's been ripped off, like its creators changed just enough key elements of her story so they didn't have to pay her royalties and then refused to give her any input on how her story would be told," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying. [ source ]

I hope Diana goes through with this. It will be so spectacular to see her wrinkly ass bumrush the red carpet at the Dreamgirls premiere with a gang of her church's choir women. They could have a street petition with some picket signs that read "Touch Me In The Morning, I'll Beat Yo' Ass at Night" and sell crack rocks and stickers to startled onlookers. Better yet, I would pay hundreds of dollars to see Diana and Mama Tina slapbox in the middle of Times Square.

Punk Ass Promotion

I'm not too keen on the details behind the Fabolous shooting that occured last week. I'm on the "Waiting To Give A Damn" list. Anyway, I know the issue involves a snatched chain, a basketball player, and a bullet in Fab's ass. That's about it and I'm not pushing for more info.

Well, now Deaf Jam Records is pushing the nigga's album release up to December - two months earlier than the planned February release. I wonder why?

This is just another case of a pitiful rapper using foolish street drama to publicize and promote his new LP. From the rumors buzzing past my ear, Fab really shot himself in the thigh as a publicity stunt. Nigga, how about you fix that triangular ass tooth. That alone would move 50,000 copies.

Ying Yang Twinz - Dangerous

I always beat myself up when I hear about some old entertainment news really late. It makes me feel like I'm not on the appropriate level as a journalist/nosy motherfucker. However, should I really be upset that I didn't know the Ying Yang Twinz had a new single out? When I think about it, I don't really give a damn anyway. Well, for those of you who do, here are the Special Ed student's new video for their single "Dangerous" featuring Wyclef. Try to stay awake. God will punish you for being mean to retarded folk.

Fergie's Special Gift

Black Eyed Peas "singer", Fergie, loves her dogs. So much so, that in an effort to bond with the canines she drops on all fours and begins to howl with them (I'm not making this up). Last week Fergie spent approximately 30 minutes howling and barking outside her LA home with the pets. The sound was so loud and high-pitched that her neighbors thought she was being attacked and called the authorities.

Her boyfriend, actor Josh Duhamel stated:

"They're (Fergie and her dogs) are out on the porch and half an hour later she walks out to her car to get something and there's a cop with a shotgun creeping up to the house. Somebody had called the cops saying that somebody was being attacked at my house... I had a cop with a shotgun outside my house in the middle of the day. It's never boring when she's around."

I always knew that bitch was part dingo. I bet is somewhere speaking to koalas right now.

Extra, Extra: Check out Fergie's new video, Fergalicious.

Michael Jackson Returns

The King of Pop has officially returned to the studio to start work on a new album (what, is it Comeback Year or something?). Anyway, Access Hollywood held an interview with Michael to talk about his life after the acquittal and what he's working on now. The question is, do we care? I mean, I admire Mike as an artist, but it just won't be any fun to see a 48 year old phantom grabbing his berries and doing the moonwalk at this point. I mean, if he dislocates a hip on-stage, I'd laugh, but I'd feel awful afterwards. So, what are everyone's thoughts on the return of "The King"?

Okay, before I go any further, I'd just like to address an issue that has been picking at me every Sunday for the past few weeks. Deelishis, all that burnt popcorn looking shit on your back is not cute. I don't care if it's supposed to be sentimental or whatever. It's nasty.

Now, as all the CelebReality fans know, Flavor of Love 2 has finally come to a close with New York's psycho ass out of the picture and Deelishis in the arms of
Jacques Roach Flavor Flav. So, now I'm wondering if Flav's new relationship will work out or if we'll just have a repeat of the Hoopz fiasco. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do remember a ton of rather R-rated photos of Hoopz zipping about the net around the time of season one's close. Well, now Deelishis is seeming to follow the same path. So, will it work? I guess we'll find out during the Flavor of Love 2: Reunion Special next week.

More Dipset Dissin'

Just a few days ago, I announced some news on Jim Jones and his newfound resentment towards Jay-Z (whatever). Just as this young'n expected, Capo has now wrapped and delivered a diss record aimed at Joe Camel, called "Alarm". Well, I don't know if I should consider this a "diss" track seeing as how there is only a single verse and the dude only made one noticeable shot at Jay.

"Well, I heard Mike Jordan came back to ball again (Word)/He might meet Iverson, crack and fall again (it's them stiff knees)/ Yes I am'a Ballin/Executive nigga like Kev, Lyor and them (Capo)."

Can someone please serve this nigga a tall carbonated glass of Shut The Fuck Up Cola? I actually like Jimmy, but the underlying marketing ploy here is so obvious. If you want to promote your album, do it the normal way, homie.

Jim Jones: Hustler's P.O.M.E in stores Nov. 7th.
See how easy that was. Tsk, Tsk.

Lionel Is Feeling Himself

Soul great Lionel Richie fancies himself as a porn star because he is so good in bed. The hitmaker insists his bedroom expertise inspires the love songs he is famous for.

He tells men's magazine Blender, "I am a legend in my own mind, the greatest porn star I know. You can't be a love songwriter and not be the greatest porn star." [ source ]

I'm going to have to hop on Ebay and place a bid in for an Indian dreamcatcher. I need something to keep the images of wrinkly gray genitals out of my head as I sleep. Lionel, I know you trying to make a comeback and all, which is nice, but you aren't Mr. Marcus. Keep that nasty shit a mystery.

I'm Screaming Already.

Parents, you can expect your horny little children to start sucking up to you soon, because The Scream Tour 5 is right around the corner. This year's tour is being headlined by (get this) Jibbs. What, was J'Kwon too busy or are they picking niggas that don't matter at random? Also joining the tour are, Omarion, No-Yo, Pretty Ricky, Yung Cock, Mario, and One Chance.

Want dates? I got them:

LAS VEGAS, NV. Aladdin or Orleans
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 23RD – NEW YORK, N.Y.Madison Square Garden

If the Pretty Ricky boys start doing dick thrusts against inanimate objects, I'm setting the stage on fire.

I'll Beat Yo' Ass!

Big Boi & T.I.

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm a video game freak (and what, bitch?). With that said, I want to thank EA Games for providing hip-hop fans with a simulatory system where we can virtually beat the chicken-fried shit out of our favorite (and least favorite) rappers, singers, actors, and more. The Def Jam video game franchise is well known and became rather popular in 2004 when the second title, Def Jam: Fight For NY, was released. Now that gamers are in the midst of the next-generation console invasion, EA Chicago has given us a look at the 3rd installment. Def Jam: Icon will be released next spring on Xbox 360 and the new Playstation 3. With an all new fighting engine and innovative musical idea, this has the potential to be the best Def Jam game ever.

Below you can find a small visual taste of what to expect from Icon, with a brawl between Ludacris & Big Boi, and T.I. & Big Boi. Cliff is knockin heads off. Why you wanna go and do that, nigga?

Scary Murphy Expecting?

TMZ has learned that former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, is four months pregnant with Eddie Murphy's baby. The news comes amid rumors that the couple will marry next month.

A source tells TMZ that Brown came into the hip Le Bra Lingerie boutique in West Hollywood on Saturday and was gushing about her impending birth.

Brown, who has a 7-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, is a frequent shopper at the store and admitted the pregnancy had her feeling tired. Brown added that she was concerned she may be carrying twins since, she noted, they run in Murphy's family.

Father God, I pray that you bless these two eccentric ass niggas and any crazy extraterrestrial babies that they bring into your world. I have nothing further to say. In Jesus name I pray,


You Mad?

Jim Jones recently did an interview with his homie (and mine) Miss Info to talk about his upcoming reality series on VH1 (seems like they're giving everybody their own show these days). Anyway, somehow the conversation zig-zagged into the topic of Jay-Z's new video for "Show Me What You Got" which premiered yesterday. It seems Capo feels that Old Hov swagger-jacked his style and "Ballin" dance for the creation of the video. He sayed,

"...dude just basically copied my Ballin video and did a more expensive version! I guess they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!"

Right. That's what it was. Jay-Z was so amazed by the brilliant innovative nature of this video that he flew to Monaco and tried to film one just like it. Negro, lay off the ganja. Sean Carter is too busy harvesting Horny Goat Weed in Africa with his chick to be worried about you. Have a seat.

Jacki-O Pops Off

These southern rap females are annoying the hell out of me with these pathetic beefs. Jacki-O just released a new diss record aimed at fellow Floridian rapper Khia called "Pop Off". The fuel to this fire was all the shit-talking Khia was doing in the various magazines she was featured in these past months.

Honestly, I barely even listened to this record. Jacki-O makes me itch. I don't know why she's beefing with Khia, anyway. They're both equally broke. I mean, Jackie got caught stealing lipgloss out of Niemen Marcus and Khia's last video looked like it was directed by an autistic 2nd grader named Larry. Boo to both of you bitches.

Jacki-O - Pop Off (Khia Diss)


On another note, Trina is tantalizing her fans with an oncoming mixtape titled Rock Star: The Baddest Bitch Reloaded, which is expected to also be the name of her actual album. The mixtape, featuring DJ Ideal as the host, will be available next week.

Black Movie Bomb

Sheryl Underwood @ The TNT Black Movie Awards

Bitch, what the hell? Sheryl looks like one of them damn Jehovah Witness' that sell peach cobbler and weed on the side to make ends meet. This is why everyone needs at least one honest friend in their lives. You have got to have someone to pull you to the side and let you know when you look like a swamp slave (i.e. this heifer above).

Melle Mel & Saigon ; The Legends ; The New School

Here are a few pictures from the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors Celebrity Basketball Game this weekend. I haven't heard much about it, except for the fact that Chris Brown was tearing the court up. Maybe I'll find some footage later.

BTW: Grandfather Melle Mel, we get it. You're 46 years old and you have a bodybuilder physique. Everyone's real proud, but can you please stop coming to these events shirtless? It's starting become really creepy. He probably picks his grandchildren up from school like that.

Ali Screams Police Brutality

Rapper, Ali of the St. Lunatics, is accusing a Missouri officer of overusing a taser on him when he was pulled over in Hazelwood this past Saturday. The town's police department has stated that Ali resisted arrest and even kicked the officer who then decided to stun him. According to Ali, the cop tased him 46 times.

"My back is a mess," Jones told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He tased me repeatedly over and over."

Now, I don't know much about tasers, but 46 times, nigga? If that's the case, I'm thinking you should be dead.

Of course, the rapper also claims that the officer made a bunch of racial comments to him during the incident. At the end of the day, Ali was arrested and later released with charges of resisting arrest, third-degree assault on an officer, and damaging a patrol car.

It's Ciara Time!

Ciara is peparing to hit the road for a 20-city tour to give her fans a preview of her sophomore album. Of course, she won't be stopping in Miami, which figures. Here are the dates:

BET will feature behind-the-scenes footage of Ciara's new video, "Promise", on Access Granted on Oct. 25th.

Growing Pain

Michael Jordan was nice enough to throw a party for Chris Brown, celebrating the success of his Up Close & Personal tour. Why? I don't know, but I don't think it's fair that Chris can get into all the clubs in the country when he's only 17 years old and I can't. It's because he's light-skinned, isn't it?

BTW: Do I see some facial hair sprouting up on that chin, Young Chris? They grow up so fast.

You Go Girl!

I know I've been posting a lot of Anti-Game news lately and I told myself I was going to stop for a while, but let's be honest - would you pass up a chance to laugh at this shit publicly. Me no think so. This is why I just can't take Jayceon seriously. Yeah, he may have a bunch of tattoos and wear gang colors now, but back in the day he was looking a little zesty. I can't seem to figure out if this woman was his girlfriend or his "girlfriend", if you know what I'm saying. They look like they spent their weekends eating marshmallow creme out the jar and crying while watching Lifetime. Mr. Taylor's ex-love, who appeared on Change of Heart with him, did make it seem like he was a little too in touch with his feminine side. Whatever.

I hate when certain artists debut and give me these high hopes and expectations for them, only to completely let me down and show me that they're just as pathetic as their peers. I used to be a Rihanna fan when she was singing from her island roots and embracing the dancehall rhythm, but all that admiration I had for her faded away when she started doing super powered pelvic thrusts on-stage (click the pic for an example). I thought it was just the bitches who couldn't sing that acted ho-ish, but I guess I was wrong.

You know you're doing well in the music industry when you record your first Christmas tune. That's just what Rihanna has done. Of course, it's just another song about winter blues and how much she wishes her man was with her (blah blah blah). At least her voice sounds really angelic. All I want for Christmas is for Santa Clause to paste a gingerbread cookie on that big ass forehead.

Trina's Making It Happen

For some reason when I saw this picture I had a brief flashback of Kaa the Snake from Jungle Book. I'm just saying, if a python wore a lacefront...

Anyway, Ms. Trina is still working hard, I hear. She has a new album in production, a new perfume out, and she's even working on a reality series.

I also got wind of news that her old project With Friends Like These has been released on DVD as a full length film. Some of you may remember how she was trying to shop the flick as a sitcom about a year ago, but it never got picked up because...well, it sucked. The movie is available on and comes with a list of bonus features that is sure to have Trina Stans shaking their moneymakers by the TV set.

.. New Music ..

Cam'Ron has been disappointing me lately. From the childish feud with Fraggle Rock to that pitiful excuse for an album he just dropped, the Dipset king just hasn't been himself these days. Mariah Carey's pussy must contain some kind of psychoactive venom that fucks with men's mental stability. Anyhow, I've been told that Cam's next album, Killa Season 2, will be released this coming winter and like his last, it will launch alongside a DVD movie of the same name (the sequel to the first). His potential first single is a track called "Weekend Love", which is somewhat of a hip-hop remake of the 1980's record "Weekend Girl" by The S.O.S. Band. Fortunately, I like it. The song kind of floated me back to Confessions of Fire, which is good. Hopefully, Mr. Giles will satisfy me this time around (no Chingy).

Negro, Shut Up!

"When (50 Cent) looks at himself in the mirror at home he probably drops tears 'cos no matter what he does I'm flat out better than him. G-Unit is dead as a brand. People just aren't into wearing their stuff anymore because I came out and dismantled their whole crew, record label and a group. God bless him and his whole crew because I'm gonna get money and I'm gonna stump a hole in their face until they're finished." -- The Game tells MTV News

Jayceon sure knows how to promote an album, doesn't he? It was less than a month ago that he got on the radio pratically begging 50 Cent to end their fued and now all of a sudden he's back to talking trash. All I'm saying is, either Game is using the stale beef as a publicity stunt or the nigga has a severely powerful case of bipolar disorder. I just wish he'd hop off of Curtis' head and shaft. That "G-UNot" mess has been tired.

Speaking of 50 Cent, the rap/gorilla man has teamed up with Ciara to record a track called "Dope Boys" (produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins) which will appear on her upcoming album in November.
