GROWN Azz Women stand up. This is the jam. I must say I fronted on this album until recently. It's way better than Akey's new album. And if you have not yet seen this woman in concert you are doing yourself a great injustice. She's on tour now with the Camel. Check it out.
Hottest body in the game. That band was the biz...And that's the band I think Yorke watching her. It's great to see she has fans like Yourke, Mic Jagger and others from the rock genre and she didn't have to change her style or self or sound. She's taking us back to "What's the 411" Mary with this outfit and hair do.
Do people really expect this chick to stay off drugs with her husband like this.
In other new, Amy is about to sign a lucrative deal with Roberto Cavalli. He wants her to wear his clothes wherever she goes to public functions and gigs.

- TI: What's that cheese you eating because you must be a rat to get 1 year for a felony charge when you're already a felon?
- REMY MA: Neither Kim nor Fox cried when she got their bid. I thought you were hard?

Okay this is not funny but.....they won't take her to prison because she's too fat? Seriously....Like our Beatniks Crew roll dawg say, if you can't take her to prison then starve her as a form of punishment...i'm saying....
Song of the day will reflect my state of mind at the time. Grown ass woman is my state of mind. You can't tell me a thang thang.....Get it MJB
The ever so fierce Madonna:
[ON PERFORMING HER CLASSICS]
"I'm not sure I can sing 'Holiday' or 'Like A Virgin' ever again. I just can't – unless somebody paid me like $30 million or something. [Like if] some Russian guy wants me to come to the wedding he's going to have to a 17-year-old, you know it."
[ON BRITNEY'S NEW ALBUM]
"I actually love Britney Spears's new album ... I usually work out to her record. I do a combination of pilates and dance aerobics."
[ON HER CHANCES ON AMERICAN IDOL IF SHE WERE A CONTESTANT]
"I went to a lot of auditions for musical theater and conventional mainstream things – and I always got cut immediately. So I'm pretty sure the same thing would happen to me."
“Bush has f-ed up so bad, that he’s made it hard for a white man to run for president. Gimme anything but another white man, please! Black man, white woman, giraffe, anything! A white man’s had that job for hundreds of years — and one guy f-ed it up for all of ya!....Each candidate tells you how humble they are. No, you’re not humble! Do you know how big your ego has to be to say you wanna be president of the United States? Do you know how much Puff Daddy juice you have to drink? How many Kanye injections you have to take?....I actually think America is ready for a woman president. But does it have to be that woman?...She’s gonna work in the office where her husband got blow jobs?! There ain’t enough redecorating in the world she can do to change that! There’s one thing Hillary Clinton’s better at than everybody else, and one thing only — and that’s forgiveness! Hillary Clinton is the greatest forgiver in the history of the world. Even Jesus knows: ‘You really good at fo’giveness. I mean, I talk the talk, but you walk the walk!’”....
....“Barack Obama, he’s a Black man with two Black names! Barack. Obama. He doesn’t let his blackness sneak up on you. As soon as you hear Barack Obama you wonder, ‘Does he have a spear?’...He’s so cool, too, man. I don’t think he realizes he’s a Black candidate! When you’re the only Black guy doing something, people expect you to take it up a notch. If you’re the only Black playing basketball with a bunch of White guys — they expect you to dunk! Barack has a handicap the other candidates don’t have: Barack Obama has a Black wife. And I don’t think a Black woman can be First Lady of the United States. Yeah, I said it!....
A Black woman can be president, no problem. First Lady? Can’t do it. You know why? Because a Black woman cannot play the background of a relationship. Just imagine telling your Black wife that you’re president? ‘Honey, I did it! I won! I’m the president.’ ‘No, we the president! And I want my girlfriends in the Cabinet! I want Kiki to be secretary of state! She can fight!’ “
Getting the same time Lil Kim got for fibbin to the feds, one year and a day. He will not start his jail sentence for another year. This delayed jail term means that TI will be able to 1)release his album this year and earn money, 2) be home for the birth of his song later this spring.
Also, we hear he will contribute to a DJ Drama (his DJ) mixtape with 50 cent.

Oprah has taught us a lot. With money you can make a black man a real contender for president and you can give a hood nikka a chance to beat the system...
T.I., real name is Clifford Harris, is expected to be sentenced to 1,500 hours of community service talking to youth groups around the country, followed by about 12 months in prison.
The rapper was arrested last October for attempting to buy machine guns - paying for them with cash and without registering for them, as mandated by the law.
He was charged with possession of unregistered machine guns and silencers, as well as possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
He faced a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count.
T.I. initially pleaded not guilty, and has been under house arrest since he was released on $3 million bond October 26th.
A change-of-plea hearing is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. at the federal courthouse in Atlanta today.
Convicted on four major charges -- first-degree assault, attempted coercion, possession of a deadly weapon, and felony assault.
Could be sentence for up to 25 years for shooting her friend because she thought the friend stole $3,000 in cash from her purse. You can take the *&&^& out the hood but,....[you know the rest]
Michael Jordan showed up with not one, but two hot girls on his arm at the recent Oakley sunglasses women’s event in Miami. “They were both acting like his girlfriends, like it was a menage a trois. They both had their hands on his thighs. The girls even looked alike, tan with dark hair.”
Isn't he pushing 50 by now?
- Danity Kane came in at #1 selling more than Janet in first week sales, wtf.
- This is the second highest sales debut in 2008, with 235,000 copies sold, next to Jack Jackson's 375,000 copies in his first week.
- The multi-label "NOW 27" compilation experiences holding tight at No. 2; Rick Ross' slips to No. 3; Flo Rida's debut album "Mail on Sunday" (Poe Boy/Atlantic) bows at No. 4 with 86,000. The rapper has the biggest selling digital download of all time, as "Low" has sold 3.3 million downloads since its November release; Miley Cyrus' Disney double-disc "Hannah Montana 2 (Soundtrack)/Meet Miley Cyrus" rockets 16-6 with a 137% sales boost to 61,000. Additionally, her "The Best of Both Worlds Concert" set clings to No. 10 with 51,000 (+48%); Taylor Swift's Big Machine jumped from 12-8, Sara Bareilles' "Little Voice" (Epic) droped from (7-9); Snoop Dogg's "Ego Trippin'" (Geffen) fills out the top 10,
In an attempt to have a more international pop sound (ie sound like Britney/Rihanna), and using our girl Ciara's ATL boy Polow da Don to produce, this is what she leaks from her upcoming album. She thinks Polow can work the wonders he did for Usher's current #1 single. The song is called "Beautiful Nightmare." Between the Prince-esq beat and generic lyrics, PS is underwhelmed. It's a clear attempt to produce crossover radio-friendly as oppose to a unique sound. Music is starting to sound the same from what's been released this year. Can't wait to see what Christina will do.

Wendy Williams' talent booker at WBLS 107.5 FM filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission yesterday (March 24) alleging that Williams' husband and manager, 33-year-old Kevin Hunter, tried to demand sex from her on repeated occasions.
According to the complaint, the self-professed "Queen of All Media" "aided and abetted" her husband's sexual harassment, even offering to take Spence shopping so that she could dress like a "sexy little b*tch," as Hunter demanded.
Williams has publicly refuted these claims, calling Spence a liar.
"Her allegations are totally false," the shock jock told the New York Post. "This b*tch is out of her mind."
SOHH spoke to Spence's attorney, Kate Webber, today, who along with lawyer Kenneth Thompson - known for defending former Source magazine editor-in-chief Kim Osorio in her sexual harassment suit against Source founder David Mays and Raymond "Benzino" Scott - will be representing the talent booker. Webber said she's unmoved by Williams' denial.
GAYle got a gift from her 'best friend' Oprah's deceased dog, Sophie. In January, Oprah purchased a large and expensive condo in New York under the company Sophie's Penthous, LLC. Reports have now surfaced that GAYle was gifted the pad upon Sophie's death.
[FELLOW PISCES, CHELSEA WAS ASKED ABOUT MONICA LEWINSKY AT A SPEAKING GIG]
"Wow, you're the first person actually that's ever asked me that question in the, I don't know maybe, 70 college campuses I've now been to, and I do not think that is any of your business,"
First off it's too late. Second, Busta kilt it. Third, they had to keep Ciara on that joint otherwise it would make her look like an old bitter broad.

Mariah performed for the premier of my favorite reality show "The Hills." She did well. It's a little out of sync. However, I think she should just save her voice for the studio. She's still the worst perfomer, second to 'Assie.

Wow, I like Wendy but this completely turns me off....Completely. Nicole Spence, the talent booker for Wendy's radio show, has filed an EEOC complaint against Wendy, the main station WBLS and Wendy's hubby Kevin Hunter (pictured above) for sexual harassment. I know these are just alegations but my pisces intuition tells me there is something to this story. This is based on my years of being a listener, hearing Nicole on the radio and the history of Kevin Hunter as a cheater. My intuition plus these facts are pretty much all I need.
Nicole contacted my roll dawg Sandra Rose and the details are on Ms. Rose's page. I'm so disgusted. Read Legal Docs Here
Get familiar with Adetayo Ayowale Onile-Ere (born to a Nigerian father and Brazilian mother) better known by his stage name Taio Cruz (Pronounced Ty-O-Cruise).
He is a British producer, songwriter, singer and performing artist. He's written for US acts like Usher and Britney Spears, as well as producers Jazze Pha and Tricky Stewart.
His new album entitled Departure was released in the UK on March 17, 2008.
Get familiar with Taio, he is the truth.
Props to 'THAT CHICK' prosecutor Kym Worthy for getting in that azz. I could have told negroes this man was a fool but you can't say anything to a negro about an educated black man, married to a black woman, financially taking care of his kids, and claiming to know Jesus.
As for the wife, far be it for me to get on her for staying with her scumbag of a hubby but the issue is not his jump offs (yes that's plural meaning more than one)but rather him stealing from his city.

Nelly is putting the finishing touches on his first album in four years, Brass Knuckles, due June 24th via Universal Records. He recently shot a video for the Polow Da Don-produced first single “Party People” with Fergie in Los Angeles, Listen Here. The video was directed by Marc Webb (Fergie, Diddy).
Rap-Up.com can exclusively reveal that the album will also feature collaborations with T.I., LL Cool J, Chuck D, Akon,and Ciara, who is featured on the Jermaine Dupri-produced “Stepped On My Js.” The track is a tribute to Nike Air Jordans, which Nelly describes as “‘Grillz’ and ‘Air Force Ones’ on steroids.”
“I love Jordans. I’ve been wearing Jordans since I can remember. Ciara loves Jordans and I thought it was a crazy fit. Ciara, J.D., and I are all from the Jordan era. The song is bananas! I can’t wait for people to hear it ’cause CiCi got busy,” Nelly tells Rap-Up.com.
Solo act, Donnie, from "Making the Band" released his new single "Take You There." I heard him do better songs on the show. I hate the song as a single. And Diddy needs to stop talking on people's tracks, although I appreciate the fact that he's still giving kids a chance to become stars even though he makes no money of music at this point. I like the fact that he has the whole 'black leather' image that is classic Bad Boy. People are comparing him to timberpuss because of the wannabe factor but Donnie is not as obvious with it, in my opinion. This song actually reminds me a bit of Omarion's "Entourage."

[ON A RECENT COUNTDOWN PUTTING HER AT #25 OF LIST OF DANCERS BEHIND DIDDY, MISSY AND OTHERS]
[ON WHO SHE THINKS IS THE #1 DANCER]
Well they did a countdown, a dance countdown…They put me at number 25 which was the last number on the list. And I just was like wow, like I put in a lot of hard work to do what I do. I rather not be the one to toot my horn like I am this, I am number one and I am whatever. But you know that was definitely crazy to me.
I love Diddy, I think he was right before me and I mentioned that he was somebody I remember was in a lower number and I’m like, “Diddy has his hop.” He has his hop that he does and he rocks, I love it because I do it sometimes too…but what is your definition of dancing? And I guess maybe they have their own way of defining it and it was just other people that were in different places. But I’m like “Okay I get number 25,” but I kept it moving. I did ask them what the 25 was about.
My judgment on dancing, I judge it to the core of what I feel is true dancing. I think what it was for them is there is a difference in entertaining and dancing. One of the ultimate entertainers is Michael Jackson and Prince; I think he’s on fire. He is one I think he may not do many dance moves, but you’re going to be locked in watching his show from the beginning to the end and if he does any move, you love it.
There’s a difference between entertainment and dancing to me, and if you’re going to judge dancing on its own, I would pick a street dancer or an artist that rocks all the way day in the streets. But one person I don’t know if they know but I think they’re aware of…is on fire when it comes to the moves, that are raw (and when I say raw, I mean hardcore), is Omarion. He is on fire with the moves; I’m not going to front. He’s clean with his moves when he does it. There’s a difference when you can get crazy and get raw and rowdy, but Omarion gets it cracking.
One person that also dances like fluid moves through him is Usher. Usher is on fire. I think once he gets a routine, he’s going to lock it in and make it look like nothing else. He’s to me for our generation, when it comes to male singer; he’s the one that really knows how to combine the two, dancing and singing. He is at this day and age, a true entertainer. He has it all to me.
.....[FOR WOMEN] I think it’s very obvious, and it’s funny because people compare us a lot. But I think Janet, to me, is one of the women that really, puts her foot in her performance and she really knows how to do both together. So she is a true entertainer.
Vivica A. Fox's new series “Glam God With Vivica A. Fox” slated to premiere in this summer, searches for the next great celebrity stylist who has what it takes to become the stylist to the stars through their ability to create a chic masterpiece using the three key elements of fashion – hair, make-up and wardrobe.
This week on the albums chart:
1, Rick Ross "Trilla" with 198,000 copies sold (more than janet and snoop with less promotion) (Slip-N-Slide/Def Jam)
2. "NOW 27" with 169,000, the lowest opening week for a regular "NOW" album since the first edition bowed in 1998 with 48,000.
3. Snoop Dogg's "Ego Trippin'" with 137,000. (lowest first week sale for him)
4. Jack Johnson's "Sleep Through the Static"
5. Alan Jackson's "Good Time"
6. Fat Joe's "The Elephant in the Room" with 46,000 copies (all that press from 50 and he couldn't pull 50k)
7. Sara Bareilles' "Little Voice"
8. Janet Jackson's "Discipline" with 38,000.
9. Erykah Badu's "New Amerykah: Part One (4th World War)" with 35,000
10. Miley Cyrus' "The Best of Both Worlds Concert" (Walt Disney) arrives at No. 10 on sales of 34,000.
Kelly has decided to follow the rest and speak directly to the fans via video blog. I know you're surprised that she has fans....but seriously Kelly is rereleasing her cd around the world and on itunes in the US so lets show support. She's is gorgeous but as boring as the wall.

- THE GOOD:
The first single "Damaged" (video seen here) is fiyah, with a catchy hook, hard knock beats, and relatable lyrics, it sets WHD up to be a crossover pop album that will make some noise this year. Other album highlights come from the mid and up tempos. The Missy produced "Bad Girl" seem perfect for DK. Missy lays an impressive verse as well. Brian Michael Cox's "Sucka for Love" stands out as one of the best tracks on the album. Dawn writes "Lights Out" which is pretty descent. Despite these attempts, the filler up tempos and boring ballads really hurt WHD.
- THE BAD:
The ballads on WHD carry on with high pitch screams and ad libs that go on forever (perhaps the downside of a 5 member band with no lead). "Ectasy" with Rick Ross starts wonderfully with a great verse from the hip hopper, then 4 of the girls sing and sound like one person for the rest of the song. With the exception of Dawn, none of the voices are distinct or have any swagger to carry what could otherwise be potential hits. As a result, the songs seem to blend together and become one big bore.
Lets not forget the fillers. Up tempos like "Pretty Boy" and "Strip tease" should not exist on this album. They were completely useless and forgotten soon after hearing. "2 of You" and "Key to my Heart bring nothing to the album either.
For these reasons, the album did not accomplish the mission of making DK more relevant or impress a wider audience this year than they did with thier first album. It will likely debut at #1 and die off shortly before it goes platnum.
As a group, if they manage to stay together, they certainly have potential. An upgrade from the Pussycatdolls, but leap years away from an En Vogue. They will have to carve a stronger attempt and not be so obviously focused on making fluffy pop sounds for the masses. They need to understand that pop music can last only if created in a quest to make good music, not just to make a catchy tune. We still look forward to seeing what DK has in store for the future.
- Grade: B-
[SPEECH AFTER RECEIVING HER ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTION]
"Thirty-five years later, people are still encouraging me to believe in my dreams...What more could I ask for? Even the people who "said I was talentless, that I was chubby, that I couldn't sing, that I was a one-hit wonder, they helped me, too,....They inspired me because they made me question myself repeatedly and pushed me to be better."
We love Madonna because she knows who and what she is and represents in the industry. She knows her limitations and embraces her strengths. She also embraces the new/future and doesn't compete with it but incorporates it into who she is today. This is why she can remain relevant and coexist when whoever is/was hot and still have a lane to maintain her respect. Long live the Queen of Pop.

I've grown respect for this audience in the past few months. These negroes try to go overseas and do things they would never attempt here. He was bullsh*ting during a concert so they threw bottles. Rightly so. Let that crackhead know.
Brit's new single "Break The Ice" has been remixed by F.A.B.O........ And yes, she just made it official. Good for you Brit Brit. In addition, the princess of pop will also be on the TV series "How I Met Your Mother" this week.

I heart Snoop Dogg. My uncle in my head....People need to lay off snoop about his comment that ugly women don't sell records. When people speak the truth, negroes wanna get mad. If you idolize every black chick with blonde hair and a record deal than guess what, you're the reason why he can make such a statement. When was the last time Macy Gray went platnum? I'm saying though...
The video is a little off but you'll get what's going on. His 10th album Ego Trippin is in stores now
