HERE WE GO AGAIN


When will they learn.... Just because noone called out Barack Obama on the fact that he claims to be a fan of hip hop yet criticizes lyrics put out by his favorite rappers Jay z and Ludacris, doesn't mean you get a pass.

Barack’s campaign is condemning a song by the rapper Ludacris that praises Obama and bitterly attacks Senators Hillary Clinton and John McCain. In true Obama fashion he buckled to criticism of the song and distance himself for the man he claimed was his favorite rapper. Through a rep he responded:
“As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to,” said spokesman Bill Burton. “This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator McCain, and President Bush, it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with the values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual he should be ashamed of these lyrics.”

Did Luda not know this would happen or is this just free publicity at Obama's expense? Note he didn't say retarded when referring to Bush. Either way Luda you are the Bama of the week for 1. going at my chick and 2. thinking the use of your name was anything more than an opp to bring in non suburbia negroes. Don't expect a call from Oprah or open arm from Hollywood.

And lets not forget they are considering Kanye West to perform at the democratic convention...Because he doesn't call women bitches **sigh**

**side note...ciara you need to do like obama and throw that nikka luda under the bus.....wtf are you in that video clip lookin like one of his 'ooooos. when 50 finally kills somebody your video will be on fox news too.***

SONG/PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: Usher duo


My fav Bey and Ursh "Bad Girl". Nothing like some simple stripper moves ...can apply to any song, slow or fast.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS...GET BACK TO THE MUSIC

Monica is trying to make a comeback...but with a reality show on local tv in Atlanta?

I always thought Monica was to be the new Whitney then she got sucked into wanting to showcase her badgirl swag and got caught (ie pregnant) by some hoodlums. One such hoodlum being that local talent Roco. So basically, she fell off. .....if you gone lose focus for a dude let it be a real artist not local wannabes. She tried to come back with snap/crunk music and that didn't work.

Looks like she will come back with classic Monica with her first single being a ballad called "Still Standing." I'm glad she realizes noone wants to hear snap or crunk music from her. I wish her the best.


IN OTHER NEWS...


The Daily Mail reports that Elizabeth Taylor has been put on life support after suffering congestive heart failure

Ciara's took a break from a photoshoot for something. They say since she got this modeling gig she's been getting real Amy Crackhouse-ish. And the messy hair doesn't help. If this is what modeling will do to you, I do not approve. Fab shoes though...


The Coke machine strategically placed in the middle of the street suggests some kind of endorsement..... And that lil stuffed animal she's playing off as a dog is tooo cute.


Getting attention is rough these days so instead of the usual exploitation of her showmance with chris brown Rihanna decided to go in public in see through so that the flashes can capture her bare boobs. Good job Rihanna.

Rap up got exclusive alternate cover for Nells new album. Excuse me while I wipe the spit off my screen.

50 Cent is reportedly filming a movie to coincide with his upcoming album titled Before I Self Destruct. His last album is set to release at the end of the year. Also, according to ShowbizSpy, 50 Cent has bought the rights to Shaniqua's life story. So now his ex-girlfriend and baby mama can't publish a tell-all-book.

Fergie unveiled the Brown Shoe footwear collection she designed in Las Vegas yesterday

THURSDAY VIDEO BLAST


Taio CruZ "She's a Star." Loved the song for a while, glad to see a video out.

Lady Gaga "Just Dance".....produced and featuring Akon of Konvict music...HAWT. tHE REAL FACE OF dance-pop and electronica music is signed to Interscope Records. And this chick can rip the stage...to think she's from good ole NY..STAND UP. Michael meets Cindi Lauper is what she is. She has dominated the world and now she is coming home to show them what real dance/pop music is all about. Seeing as how other US artist are always biting her you might as well be introduced to the real thing

Bow Wow f/ Souljah boy "Marco Polo." Souljah boy did the beat, which is really nice...clearly that's his real talent. The song is generic swag talk but I enjoyed it combined with the beat. LOL @ Bow calling himself the next Will Smith when 2 years ago he was dissing him. What a lame

Correctional officer Ross f/ Trey Songs "This Is The Life." Not for long...

Wayne f/ Tpain "Got Money"

Snoop "Gurlz"....typical

Dwele "Cheatin". It's not new but thought I'd premiere it here. Creative video.

Charles Hamilton "Brooklyn Girl." He is a pink wearing/lovin Cleveland-born MC who's favorite video game character is Sonic the Hedgehog, he blogs daily, and his third cousin is MC Lyte.

Lil Miss Nana...use to hang with Bow Wow until he fell off. She's now dissing Lil Mama. Iunknow, I like her and have also found a new love for Mama. I'mma go with Mama on this one, she has more energy, plus she has a record deal

One of Russel's nieces with a video for that wack song she put out claiming it's for her sneaker line. They're trying to test the waters and see if she can put out a cd. Let me help you out...DON'T.

COUPLE SCOOP


Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong called it quits this weekend after a three-month romance that went public when they were spotted in Austin, Texas in mid-May, Usmagazine.com exclusively reports.

I use to like her because of her mom, now I think she's a 'loose' one.

CALI EARTHQUAKE


A magnitude-5.4 earthquake shook the Los Angeles metropolitan area Tuesday, leaving residents rattled but causing no serious damage or injuries.

See Judge Judy Court Room during the earthquake and Family Court with Judge Penny

IN OTHER NEWS


Someone leaked AARRAHH's album, dang:
While the sexual escapades on last year's Double Up were cloaked in abstruse (and awesome) metaphors involving space exploration and visits to the zoo, the ones on R. Kelly's new 12 Play: Fourth Quarter are pretty much left out in the open. In fact, Kellz makes his intentions clearer here than he has on any track since "I Like the Crotch on You.".......

Given his legendary discography, none of these tracks are in any danger of becoming greatest hits, but "Might Be Mine" is probably still ridiculous enough to earn a spot on our ever-growing iTunes playlist of completely insane R. Kelly songs.

I actually heard the song 'sign' last night and that dude actually said something about being a girl's toy/ call him lagos. In the words of Jim Jones, what a dweeb.
see full report
Puffy finally gets in Nelly in his underwear. Nelly was named the face of the Sean John underwear. This is surprising considering he has his own line and he's not a new artist. if he were to get an endorsement, I would think he would want a more high end brand.

Diddy sings Nelly's praises saying:
Nelly has the attitude, the swagger, and most of all the physique that our customers can both aspire and relate to … And let’s be honest, all of the ladies out there are going to be thanking us for this campaign.”

Although the hip-hop bad boy from America is the first spokesmodel for the brand's underwear basics and loungewear category, Nelly follows a long list of celebrity models for Sean John including Dwayne Wade, Nas, Snoop Dog, Lil' Wayne, Penelope Cruz, Cassie, and Lauren London.

Nelly's next album is due out September 2008 with guest appearances from Akon, Polow da Don, Ashanti, Jermain Dupre, Fergie, Ciara, and more.


Ciara's also eyeing an underwear gig.

Wilhelmina president Sean Patterson speaks of Ciara highly:
“She is the complete package. She is model made, with perfect size, perfect height (Ciara is 5 feet, 7 inches tall), a beautiful body and face. Take the music and dancing away, and she’s still gorgeous.”

So what do they have planed first for Ciara, who just finished her one year contract with Rocawear? Victoria’s Secret. “It’s a perfect fit,” Lisa Cambridge of Zomba Label Group was quoted as saying, since it “plays with her personality and her coming of age. It’s tasteful, sexy and beautiful, just like her.”

Her team also touched on an athletic company they are also working with but would not give up a name. They say it will show off her athletic side.

Her next album “Fantasy Ride” drops in the fall with appearances by Akon, Lil Jon, The-Dream and Ludacris.

Ciara also wants to expand her acting career but don’t look for her in a starring role on the big screen just yet. Unfortunately her “Mama, I Want To Sing” is going straight to DVD in early 2009. This is Ciara's second acting role; she made her debut with a supporting part in the 2006 MTV Films production "All You've Got," which starred Adrienne Bailon and Efren Ramirez.

WTF


Police in Michigan have arrested a man who they say tried to steal posters and other items related to the new Batman movie from a cinema lobby while dressed up as the Joker. Detective Mike Mohney said Monday 20-year-old Spencer Taylor of Three Rivers has been booked for investigation of larceny.

SONG/PERFORMACE OF THE WEEK: Usher Performance Duet


Ursh perform with Akeys

ANOTHER SNITCH AMONG US


I mean, we know Fox News is for the Repubs and we all know who the Dems have in their pockets. Media is the imaginary 4th branch of this government. Why is dude snitching on our favorite gangsta Bush? Lets not act like we don't know how corrupt this country's political and legal system is.

In developing countries they put it on blast and act like America is the blueprint or moral high ground of democracy but most of us with some sense know better. You can listen to an American jounalist and know their political bias. Watching American news is just a matter of who you'd rather be brainwashed by. This is not new information. Fox is not the only bias news channel so CNN needs to give me a freakin break.

JIM JONES STAYS GOING AT KANYE

And I love it. Don't get me wrong, anyone affiliated with Dipset sucks. Jim Jones is the worst rhymer in history but when you go at Kanye I want to hear what you gotta say and he's exactly on point. And all those homothugs he got with him...all garbage. But apparently Kanye didn't close at Hot 97 summer jam as a thought and he got mad but said some slick ish on the low until Jim (who actually closed) got wind of it. Kanye knows who to bring that dumb ish to.

I still say 50 got these lames doing his dirty work these days.

IN DONKEY #2 NEWS...


The New York Post says Denise accused Charlie of molesting their daughters.

A source said, “Denise’s accusations were vile. She was basically trying to say Charlie [manipulated] the kids and acted inappropriately with them. It’s disgusting and totally untrue. Charlie is furious . . . Denise has really pushed it too far this time.

NEW MUSIC TUESDAY


Tboz "You Got Me Open"

Possible new joint from Whitney, submitted by RKelly. She better do this song. It's much better than that joing with Akon, which has been taken off youtube.

Neyo does vocals on Rihanna's "Take A Bow," a song he wrote for her.

Mario "I Chose You." Produced by Stargate. Great
Ha. AArah has the nerve to do a song called “Heaven Chose You.” Chi town Imma let yall shake ya heads on this one.

PIC OF THE DAY: Billboard Banks on Ciara


Ciara graces the August 2008 cover of Billboard Magazine. Interesting that she would get a cover without an album out when they got Neyo, Nelly, TI and others with albums before her. They even let Usher share a cover with producer Danja, yet they gave Ciara her own cover. Maybe they are predicting something. Either way good look Ci...You betta bring it.

In the issue Ciara talks about her modeling contract with Wilhelmina, her new movie Mama I Want To Sing, and her new album, Fantasy Ride (LaFace/Jive), which is scheduled to drop November 2008.

ANGELINA: they want her to play catwoman in the next batman installment...LET THE HATING AND PROTESTS BEGIN
LIL WAYNE: studio gangsta of 2008. over at Sandra Rose I found a video recorded on camera phone, supposedly of wayne running from some Crips in LA.

First off those grown azz men/ so called gang members need to get a job, second, wayne had no business in the hood. we all know you got shot playing with your daddy's gun. You aren't a gangsta.

HOT MESS OF THE WEEK


Raven Simone in concert from the outfit to the amount of people inthe audience. I hear she canceled her tour for poor ticket sales. And this just in...she's just been droped from Hollywood records where she's signed. In other news...the bish is still a freakin multi millionare. please believe it

Mugly Gyllenhal... I'm still trying to figure out how this bish became a star...if they are soooooo particular about beauty and all that jazz. She had no business playing a love interest in Batman....she should have been the joker. More like a foot with facial features.

Mugriah Carey visited MTV's TRL in her usual ho garm...and her lipo treated stomach

SATURDAY PERFORMANCES


LL and The Dream on SYTYCD performing single "I'm Your Baby" for the first time. They could have given Dream some face time dang.

In her greatest accomplishment as a solo artist by headlining at T4 On The Beach festival in the UK. Here she does her single "Work" and "Delema". I felt a Diana moment during Dilema.

This is also her biggest audience as a solo artist although they weren't all there to see her. Congrats to Mathew for getting her the headline gig. Kelly's song "Work" is top 10 in the UK, Australia, Paris and a few other countries so let it be known.

Reports say there were some early boos but her performance shut them up quickly. Despite all the talk she has been performing for over 10 years now so offcouse she's not terrible at it.

And how hot is the outfit and the body? Here she does a DC Melody. I must say though she needs to get a new performance style cause throughout it was very beyonce-ish. Even her facial expressions when she sings is pure B.

Jasmin Sullivan performs her buzz hit for Seventeen. See more HERE

Jhud performs at the GMA. Vocally she's always on point although at times still yelling and giving me a dang headache. She looked bored at one point, reminded me of amy whinehouse, lol. The song has a 70s feel to it. I'm loving this song by the day. Here's Another Performance

Nas on Kolbert...

I guess he took notice of her freestyle and invited her on stage to perform the song. This may have actually saved your rap career Lil Mama......we may actually pay attention the next time you put out an album. Just remember none of that 'lipgloss' bull.

And omg that lil 2 step weezy does is so cute

The wackjuice that is Jessica Simpson w/ that fake accent.

"YOU KNOW I ...THUG EM, FUG EM, LOVE EM, LEAVE EM, CUZ I DONT' FUGIN NEED EM..."

The headline is a Quote from the one and only Jay Z. A man he is not...

I give you several stories and excerpts from various interviews regarding Camel as a friend.


(Pictured: Dame and Aaliyah and Jay and Aaliyah)
1. Dame
Jay was discovered by Dame Dash whom he met through Foxy Brown's cousin Clark Kent. Dame was a savy business man from Harlem with an idea for a label, and they went on to create an independent label called Rocafella records along with a silent partner, Kareem Biggs. They managed to get a distribution deal through Def Jam.

They had some disagreements along the way. Early on there was some tension in a triangle among Jay Dame and Aaliyah at 19 years old. Later, creative differences came about. Jay did not want Dame to sign Kanye West on the label as an artist and now Kanye is highest selling or only selling artist on Rocafella. Such creative differences came at a time when their deal with Def Jam was about to be up, and all decided to sell their share in the roc to Def Jam. Even though Jay agreed, he went behind their backs after they did what was agreed upon negotiated to own Rocafella without his long time friends. Dame explains in an audio paraphrased below:
"He made a request to maintain control without us and that's what he got. It's a shame what happened. It hurt our feelings. The only people that can hurt you are the people closest to you. Then he went to artist and told them to choose a side. I didn't see it coming because I read the rumors and didn't believe it because that was my brother. It was a betrayal. But it is what it is, I'm sure he felt he was right. If that's what he thought of our relationship then that's what it is. It was disloyal and embarrasing to the Roc brand that we built. Now the brand is falling apart because I handled the business he was the artist..... A real boss is about his company not himself. "

[As for his "Lost Ones" song referencing us]....I didn't know that's how it was. I don't know what's on his mind....... I'm disappointed, said Dash. He could've just pulled me aside and told me. That's what grown men do. Me and Jay made history, there's no need for beef. He's not the same person that he was. ..................

He's the best but right now he's not at his music is not.... You have to know when to quit.
Pictured: Foxy and Jay performing
2. Foxy
When Jay and Dame couldn't get Def Jam to look at them or a radio station to play their music through their then independant label rocafella. Foxy Brown (already signed to def jam at 16 years old) was introduced at 16 years old to Jay through her cousin, Clark Kent. They hit it off and she went on to record music with and put in a good word for them with Def Jam. The song was a hit (ain't no) prompting Def Jam to sign with rocafella and the rest is history. The 2 dubbed themselves the bonnie and clyde of rap. Their relationship had it's ups and down. Some say became personal but there's no proof of that. They had a falling out when he signed Amil whom he had a personal relationship with, but soon Amil was dropped. Years later when he signed as president of Def Jam, Jay renewed Foxy's soon to expire contract, but this time he signed her to Rocafella/defjam. Soon after, she had issues with her ear and going deaf as well as legal issues. She explains how Jay was not there for her:
“A lot of things have happened over the years between Jay and I,” ....

"Jay and I have history. There are things that he could have done better, as far as his loyalty to me, and I’m sure I’ve made mistakes that he felt he could’ve prevented.” Foxy chokes up. ..........

The tears are streaming down her cheeks. “I would never denounce him in public. That’s just how I feel. But I’ve been incarcerated for eight months, and Jay’s been everywhere, and he hasn’t mentioned one thing about, ‘Tell her I love her. Tell her to be strong.’ That broke my heart more than anything. When they sent me to jail, I just knew he would be there-everyone came. But he never showed up… My mother always says,jay also said this,in the tru life freestyle ‘Inga, when a person shows you who they are, believe them. Been showing me all through the years and you just don’t wanna believe it.

Pictured: The Then Roc Familia including Amil
3. Amil
After Jay kicked Foxy to the curb the FIRST time..he picked up a hoodrat named Amil (19 years old) whom he had a relationship with and signed her to Rocafella alone even though she was a part of a group, forcing her to abandoned her friends. She soon released a solo album with a first single featuring a then supposedly 19 year old Beyonce (which the media doesn't realize was when Jay and Bey became what it is). Soon after Jay dropped Amil. She touches on it at times:
"I just learned a lot from that experience and that's the only way I can look at it....I have no regrets."

[on jay dissing her in concert] "It didnt' really bother me. It was expected. They did it for a while before doing it for the Fade to Black DVD. What can you do? "

I don't talk bad about him. I've never to this day done that. It's not my nature. People do what they do for their reasons. Karma is something I take seriously.....

I don't communicate with any of them.


Pictured Tierra Marie and Jay Z
4. Tierra Marie
Tierra Marie at 17 years old was handpicked by Jay Z as the first singer signed to his rocafella records. He had a choice between Tierra and Rihanna (who was discovered and brought to him by Def Jam president LA Reid), and opted to sign Tierra to his personal label. As a result, LA Reid had Jay sign Rihanna to Def Jam as his first order of business as president. Tierra was crowned the princess of the Roc and marketed more even getting a remix with Jay Z on the track.

Despite unfair treatment Rihanna still managed to beat out Tierra in sales and work ethic by pumping out album after album after album each year. As a result, Jay had someone call Tierra and tell her she had been dropped and went on to work with Rihanna even sometimes having her throw up the Roc sign and forgetting that he passed up on signing her directly when he had a chance. Here's what Tierra had to say:

"I called Jay-Z my father; he was like a second father to me. Tracy Waples (a rocafella exec rumored to be one of Jay's jumpoffs), I called her a second mother. So to just be thrown out – and I didn’t get a call from Tracy or Jay – it was a bit heartbreaking. You know we live and we learn, but just me being that young and inexperienced I didn’t know. So I took it pretty hard.

Teairra on her current relationship with Jay-z
"There is no relationship there at all. I haven’t heard from him since that time. I think I sent him a happy birthday message because his birthday is two days after mine, like two years ago and since then it’s been nothing. And I don’t want it to be – Actually, it’s fine because I was a young girl. If you could come into a young girl’s life and then just throw her on the curb, you put this father presence on and then be like, “I’m done with it.” I don’t want a relationship like that. ….I see both sides. I see how people can be on you one second and then totally off of you and not even call you to see if you’re still living or not."


Up next: Kanye Rihanna, Memphis and dare I say Beyonce...Time will tell

TOP SONG/PERFORMANCE OF THE DAY: Top Female Groups

She calls herself explaining the injustice that is not giving that man's hard earned money to her lazy azz.

'Assie just posted the following on her official blog:

"Another Day… Another Rumor

HEY! This blog is simply to clear up a rumor. The newest one is that I am engaged. That rumor is completely false and I have no clue how it came to be or why it got so big, but it's not true, real talk. I am not engaged. Whether or not you've heard about it, thank you for your time Stay Blessed!


Bachelor Matt Grant and fiancée Shayne Lamas have ended their short and often-rocky relationship, they tell PEOPLE.

"We tried hard to make it work but we realized that we were both heading in different directions," the two said in a statement to PEOPLE. "We truly care about each other and will remain close friends."

Neither would elaborate.

ALBUMS IN PROGRESs


The Overhyped seemingly overgrown 10 yr old Chris Brown is working on a third album just after releasing and rereleasing his current album all in one year:
Graffiti is the third studio album by American singer Chris Brown, which is still currently in the recording process. Chris started recording in June 2008, the album is slated to be released during the first quarter of 2009. Brown has a line up of guest to work with for the album, including: Bow Wow, T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Ciara, Rihanna, Pharrell, Bryan Michael Cox, Danja, Polow da Don and others. Chris also stated he would like to do a track with his nephew "Scooter". This album would consist of more ballads and slow songs rather than his usual high energy dance tracks. Chris Brown has stated that this album will be more "Secular", saying he is becoming an adult and would like to go to that next level. However, he has stated that he intends to try and keep his younger audience also.


The wackness that is Cassie (aka carrier of Diddy's Lollipop) is also slated for an album release this year:
Cassie's second studio album is scheduled for release in September 2008. The album features production by Seven, Mario Winans, Bryan-Michael Cox, Eric Hudson, Sean C and LV, Ryan Leslie,[2] and Danja. Cassie has said that she had "[grown] up a lot" since her first album, and that "you can hear [her] vocals better this time around. There's real emotion and a much realer connection with fans." She also said the album's first single would be "a club record" and "fun and danceable".[2] The album includes credits from Ryan Leslie, Swizz Beatz, Bryan Michael Cox, Rodney Jerkins, Kanye West,[3] and Danja. Cassie announced that Ciara will be on the album.


The oversized overproducing sell out dweeb Timberland thinks he's an artist as well:
Timbaland still can't find the right category to classify his smash album Shock Value. He better figure something out quick — the producer is planning to go into the lab and make another one. "Right now, I have a song with Madonna that I didn't put on her album. I saved [it] in case I wanna do one for me," he revealed. "Of course I'mma do one with BeyoncĂ©. Of course I'mma do one with Jordin Sparks, Rihanna. It's a lot of people. I'mma do one with Jonas Brothers. I'mma try to have 10 major ones."


The overrated rapper yet excellent producer Missy is coming with some wacky ish as usual:
Missy Elliott told Entertainment Weekly she hasn't decided on an album title but she and Timbaland are "always gonna take it as far left as possible without losing people or having them thinking we’re on drugs." She also revealed producers Danja, Polow Da Polon, T-Pain and DJ Toomp will be on the album. As far as cameos, she said Keyshia Cole and Ciara will make appearances.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: LL Cool J

LL still doing promo for his single. But he's doing something very strange by not dissing anybody before he comes out. What's up with that? Anyway here he is weighing in on the Souljah Boy v. Ice T war of words.

SONG/PERFORMANCE OF THE DAY: Top 5 Female Groups

#2 SWV
Urban swag yet classic melodies, SWV were round a away girls representing the regular chick with a lead singer who could sing her butt off. They sold millions of records without crossover appeal and remained true to their sound. The success of this group inspired the influx of similar groups such as Xscape, Jade and others. Because of their mark in Urban music, they get the #2 spot. Check out one of their most successful records:

NEGRO PLEASE: Elisabeth Hasslebach

Joy hosted Larry King ( I hope she takes over the show when that fart dies) and discussed the whole incident on the View regarding JJ's use of the N word. That bish had the nerve to call in because guest Fran made a comment about her crying. See part one for the background and Part two for the call in from that two faced bish.

NAS ON KOLBERT REPORT

Dude is one of the best and my personal favorite of all time. After over a decade in the business he's finally getting crossover exposure because he's speaking up against Fox News for racism? If anyone from hiphop can fight this battle it will be him but.... Nas you criticize artist for using commercial products to sell albums, i can't help but to think this is stunt to sell albums. Here he is on the show. Kolbert had the kids do great research to act like he actually knew who Nas was:

I STILL NEED A JOB FROM 50


This is what you get to do if you work in the office of this high school drop out turned millionare. I'm glad to see the team's in good spirits considering the flop of TOS.

THURSDAY VIDEO BLAST


Danity Kane "Bad Girl" f/ Missy. Hot....nothing original though. I see Diddy trying to show the similarities between Shannon and Britney...That bike scene was a total "toxic" jack. Note cameos from Tallan of "Lugana Beach" fame and Q from Day 26

The chick who is on the "hottest chick in the game" throne right now...a title given not just from her boyfriend, is still doing her 'i'm different i'm edgy thing.' Once you get past the fact that Christina, Madonna, Pink and others have already done a video like this (however she provide an upgraded version of beyonce's 'ring the alarm'); and her movements are still stiff...i like it. MTV will eat it up and European market will love this from her. Beyonce, you betta come real hard to get it back mama.

Amy Winehouse "Just Friends." Another label made video. Now that her "Blake Incarcerated" has been sentenced for 27 months, might as well start writing the obituary

Jeezy f/ Kanye "Put On." I guess....I like the song but he's trying to talk about something yet the lyrics of the song is not really talking about anything. Another one of those on the surface/ I'll say a line about the recession to look like i care/ like kanye and then I'll add Kanye for some surburban appeal/ although it's the same ole rap song bragging. Having said that I love the song and the video is aight.

YUCK

Trey Songs "Missing You". Okay

Gnarls Barkly "Who's Gonna Save My Soul." Always different.

Plies f/ Jaimie Fox and The Dream "Please Excuse My hand". **rolls eyes**

NOTABLE AND QUOTABLE: Amy Winehouse

[ON HER GODDAUGHTER...THE BLACK GIRL SHE'S ALWAYS WITH...AND HER ADVICE TO HER]
Dionne is definitely the nuts. She’s better than I was at that age. The way she plays guitar and accompanies herself is something else. When I was that age, I didn’t want to do it for a profession but it was something I knew I had and I could always rely on. It’s all very well being good at music but you need to have a trade. Dionne said to me before she just wants to get a degree and then she’ll think about music, which is the loveliest thing I could ever hear.

In all seriousness, what do I know? I’ve said to her: “When you feel so strongly about something, write it down.”

[ON HOW SHE CAN TRUST PEOPLE]
I’m a good judge of character. Me and Dionne, I’m like: ‘Do we like that person?’ and she’s like: ‘No way!’. [Smiles] She’s good, she’s good.

[ON THOUGHTS OF COMPARISONS TO BRITNEY]
I think she’s been tormented. [I'm not] I’m in love with my husband.

[ON HER HUBBY]
When me and Blake met we were best friends. And I knew he had a girlfriend. And he tried to hide it from me but I don’t think he realized that I wasn’t bothered actually. To be in love with someone is to be able to let them go and do what they want pray they’ll come back to you. I didn’t know that we were in love. Everybody else knew, apart from us. I didn’t know we were destined to be together but I thought I’d die without him. I thought I’d never see him again. But everybody else around us knew we’d be together

[ON RUMORS OF HER CHEATING ON HUBBY]
[Sighs] I dunno, theres loads of bollocks printed. Me and my husband are so close that I think it doesn’t really matter. But maybe it does? But I swear it don’t. It doesn’t mean bollocks.

[ON HER HEALTH]
I’m eating loads of healthy food, sleeping loads, playing on my guitar, making music. And writing letters to my husband every day.

[WHERE SHE SEES HERSELF IN A YEAR]
I’ll have dusted off my third album. I’ll be pregnant, hopefully…

SONG/PERFORMANCE OF THE DAY: Top 5 Female Groups

#3 Xscape
As far as the south they made a mark for their market. Great albums, great singles and an urban flare. Check out "Who Can I Run To"

LESBO FIGHT


WNBA brawl gone wild. Whatever happened...they should do it more often for some ratings.

IN OTHER NEWS


Kanye West is set to visit veterans of the Iraq war for a new documentary to be shown on MTV. Wishful thinking that somehow he stays over there for good.

Will launch his Pimp Juice line of energy drink in France and Sweden.

Will do an HBO comedy special, titled 'Chris Rock: Kill The Messenger,' which premieres Sept. 27. It will feature footage from three different performances; at South Africa's Carnival City Casino, New York's legendary Apollo Theatre and the Carling Apollo Hammersmith in London.

Mariah debuted her new video with TI. I think she's meant to be fat. Perhaps this is why she looks so awkward.

Amy Winehouse wax figure in London. All they're missing is snowflakes on her nose. ....Also, her hubby was recently sentenced to 27 months in prison.
