My Blogging

I created the first gossip blog.

Whew! - I’ve been holding that in since I first clicked on the BEST entertainment blog out there: Crunk and Disorderly. I had been doing something much more low key (think: home spun) since 1999. Under the sickeningly soulful name of TexasFlava, I'd created a page on BlackPlanet for the sole purpose of getting my opinions into cyberspace. I had no desire to include any personal information on my page, although my pictures were splattered throughout.

Chris Alexander, a witty, smart, clever, and private friend of mine who passed away earlier this year (RIP PD), had an impersonal yet heavily trafficked page on BlackPlanet. Because I thought he was the coolest thing since Matthew Knowles, I wanted my page to be impersonal also. I did agree that it screamed of desperation to make your BlackPlanet page a personals ad, so I was never tempted to go that route. All I wanted to do, at first, was crack on wack pages on BP. Those commentaries quickly turned into celebrity and news opinions. I had a nice following, too.

A few years into it, I lucked up on Crunk and Disorderly. I was shocked! I laughed, and I went to some other celeb blogs. I quickly realized these folks were serious about blogging. My commitment just didn’t go that deep. But, I’ve tried to maintain some semblance of a blog. I have gotten pretty damn lazy about it though. Instead of the insightful musings that I was known for on BP, I’ve resorted to quips here and there on celeb sightings and events. Little news—and even fewer original ideas.

I think I’m ready to put a little more effort into this thing.

Pimp C Remembered

In a statement released late Wednesday afternoon (December 5), Bun B, Pimp C's longtime friend and the other half of UGK, said, "His genius was unparalleled. His passion was undeniable and his love was unmatched. To say that I lost a friend or brother would never do justice to the relationship we shared. I will never be the same again. Bun B."

Others Speak on Pimp C HERE

(Flipper be quick on the tribute songs…)

I don't even know what to write because there are so many things that come to mind when I think of Pimp C/Chad Butler. A die hard fan since '92, I loooooved me some Pimp C. He was so bold. creative. soulful. entertaining. crazy. real. talented. TEXAS. I really appreciated all of that. I'm glad he left a lot of material, but I needed some more. I am so glad that The Pimp got to record Underground Kingz with Bun, though. Classic material. You can hear it HERE.

West Coast rapper and labelmate Too $hort, who had performed with Pimp C on Saturday night, says his close friend left an indelible mark on hip-hop."Pimp C highly influenced the rap game," he said via statement issued to SOHH. "A lot of rappers adopted his rap style and his production techniques. He was my best friends and fortunately, I was just with him on stage Saturday night at the House of Blues on Sunset. He was in a good mood, smiling and laughing. That's how I'll always remember him."

It's kinda interesting that the last person to perform with him was a fellow "pimp". :-)

I will surely miss Pimp C. I'm Houston all the way -- I loved his beats, but that voice was so right. There will never ever be another Pimp C ...or UGK.

Keep your head up, Bun...

UHH - I wanna go to service
But I ain't been in so long,
kinda make me feel nervous (nervous)
Cause they be lookin at me funny
Watchin the plate when I tithe, put in my money (money)
I don't wanna go back to that hell
Rather be dead than doin life in a jail cell
Die young oh well (well) I had a good life (life)
They rappin 'bout it but I'm out here payin the price
-- Pimp C, Livin this Life, "Underground Kingz"

Man Tips Out on Wife After Winning Lottery



After discovering her husband hid his lottery winnings from her, a Florida woman demanded he fork over her share of the lottery jackpot.

Donna Campbell became suspicious of her husband, Arnim Ramdass, when he started to keep the television turned off and disconnected the phone line. Her suspicions rose when she found a postcard about a new home purchase.

But Campbell was unaware that her husband was hiding a $10.2 million secret from her until she Googled her husband's name and lottery number. She found a
Florida lottery press release that named 17 airline mechanics who won the jackpot, her husband was one of them.

''Here's a guy who for years has spent marital money on the lottery and at casinos, and he's always lost,'' said Bruce Baldwin, Campbell's attorney. ``And now he finally wins, and he's trying to keep it from his wife. That's pretty low.''

According to Campbell, when she confronted her husband, he said he bought the ticket for his daughter from another marriage.
(more here)

Aint this some ish? Dude's share came to $600,000 and he clearly didn't want to share that. That's a lot of money, but when you think about splitting it...nah... he had to make it. By the time he resurfaces he'll be broke and in rehab.

You My Girl, But...

I like Keyshia Cole -- really I do. She's no MJB, but Keyshia got a fan in me. She didn't show up for a concert in Columbus, GA, and apparently, they don't play that -ish in the G-A. So some guy(s?) and girl(s?) made a diss song about Keyshia's shady antics. The song lasts about 18 seconds too long, but you gotta hear it.

A Conversation with Jay-Z

Wonderful conversation between Jay-Z and Charlie Rose.



How can you not love this man? Jay-Z has a sex appeal that is timeless. Oh, wait, he has a mind too! Right when you think he might finish the sentence in Ebonics, he switches it up and lets you know he has a vocabulary.

Beyonce - DirectTV Commercial



Oh my.

David Banner Says Hip Hop Is Not About Politics

Sohh: Why do you feel hip hop didn’t get more involved with the Jena 6 situation?

DB: Hip Hop did….And why does hip hop have to do every damn thing? Why don’t you put that type of responsibility on your President? On your Representatives? Hip Hoppers supposed to be doing music. We need to be in the studio! That’s where we need to be.

The BET Hip Hop Awards weren't enough...?

Hollywood Writers About to Strike



Hollywood writers and studio representatives began last-ditch negotiations Sunday in an effort to prevent a strike, the writers union said.

A federal mediator called the meeting between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television producers at an undisclosed location.

The writers' contract expired October 31, and they plan to strike at 12:01 a.m. Monday (3:01 a.m. ET) if a deal cannot be reached.

The first picket lines would be seen at New York's Rockefeller Center, followed by picket lines at various locations in Los Angeles, the guild said.

The writers want more money from the sale of DVDs and a share of revenue generated by the sale of TV shows and films over the Internet.

The studios say the demands are unreasonable and would hamper attempts to experiment with new media.

. . .

The first casualty of the strike would be late-night talk shows, which are dependent on current events to fuel monologues and other entertainment.

"The Tonight Show" on NBC will go into reruns starting Monday if last-ditch negotiations fail and a strike begins, according to a network official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to comment publicly.

Comedy Central has said "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" would likely go into repeats as well.

Daytime TV, including live talk shows such as "The View" and soap operas, which typically tape about a week's worth of shows in advance, would be next to feel the impact.


Full story here
Here too


I wish the writer's were striking in response to the influx of irrelevant reality shows. Some I love, but most I hate to love...and some I actually hate.

I don't watch a lot of regular television shows, but I love Ulgy Betty, The Game, and (now stale) Girlfriends. I'd hate if the those writers went on strike. Well, Lynn is starting to look middle aged and Joan is getting more ridiculous with each episode. Darnell could stand to lose a few pounds. Bring the sexy back.

White Boy Tell Em...

My superold homegirl has been soliciting everyone under 14 years old to show her how to do the Soulja Boy. Maybe these kids can teach her....



I can't even be mad.

Serial Killer in Moscow



A former grocery store clerk who imagined he was "almost God" as he methodically hunted and sought to kill one person for every space on a chessboard has been sentenced to life in prison for 48 murders.

A Moscow court handed down Russia's harshest possible sentence for Alexander Pichushkin, 33, who mostly preyed on residents of his poor Moscow neighborhood.

Pichushkin stood in a reinforced glass cage, his hands cuffed behind his back, while the judge read out the sentence Monday. Asked whether he understood the sentence, he replied: "I'm not deaf."

Pichushkin became known as "the chessboard killer" because he said he aimed to kill 64 people to match the spaces on a chessboard.

He had boasted of killing 60 people and trying to kill three others. However, prosecutors could only find evidence to charge him with 48 murders and three attempted murders.

Clearly, Moscow is on a whole ‘notha level. Take THAT, Snipers.

Not to undermine heinous crimes he committed, but damn – he got that far and didn't get that whole board???

One for the D Cups



If the Big Booties can pose with emphasis on the ass, Keyshia can definitely caress the ta-ta's. She looks really pretty, too.

Lil Wayne's "Vibe" Interview


Lil Wayne recently gave a hilarious interview to Vibe Magazine.

Does he not know that there’s a picture of him and Baby tonguing…all over the Internet? He don’t know that we kinda sorta think he might be just a little bit faggotish?

Excerpts from the interview. I have inserted Lil Wayne's THOUGHTS in brackets [ ].

Huh? Why?
Every picture of this nigga, he got his fucking shirt off! [and turnin me the fuck on!] He's looking at the camera like he's looking at a hoe [I could marry this sexy mfker for real...no homo]. I said, ya know what? Trey Songz don't give a fuck - he be like, Fuck ya'll nig*as! [am I ‘bout to nut in this bitch?!] I'm eating, bwoy! Fuck how you think I look in this picture, your hoe love this picture! [and a greasy Weezy do too Boo!] It's her screensaver nig*a! When you call your hoe, my song play, fool! Holla! Trey Songz I fuck with you, you heard me?
So you respect his gangster.
I know he a G 'cause I tried to holler at his girlfriend and she said no.

Really?
I don't even wanna put that man out there, that might not be his girlfriend, but in her mind she think she yours, dog, and she told me no for you, so you's a G. [I dream about that nigga.] And this wasn't long ago, this was recently, I was the president, I had all that going for me, bitch said NO! [he must be packin!] She sent me a picture of y'all and everything, like that new video from 50 and Ciara, that's how y'all was.

Naked on top of each other?
For real, I fuck with Trey Songz, no homo. [homo]

That's funny. Is there anything else you want to share about your career so far?
I signed my contract at 11, I put out my first solo album at 15 [Baby started kissin on me] and I'm 25 and I've been living in that ever since [nigga f'kd up]. I haven't sold a brick. I haven't had to see one unless I wanted to snort it! [You'd snort too if Baby had YO back.]

Believe me when I say Dwayne Carter is entertaining as hell. You HAVE to love him. But he’s the tightest rapper in the game. Real talk. (Hate that overused under deserved phrase.)

Apparently, this is That Nigga.

Superhead on Jamie Foxx Radio Show



This is a pretty interesting, funny, and looooong interview. No holds bared.

The gist is a lot of name calling and laughing. Karrine is ... Karrine. And Jamie is, of course, Jamie. The only somewhat serious moment is when Tigger calls and lamely defends the NASTY ASS claims Superhead makes against him. I mean, it's pretty vile, and either she's a bold faced liar or he's flaming punk. The computer got kinda hot, I must say.

The only part I don't get is: why is she so offended at being called Superhead?? Bitch, don't act brand new -- that's your name.

Bill O’Reilly Amazed at Civilization of Blacks


Bill O’Reilly and Al Sharpton recently visited the soul food restaurant, Sylvia’s, in NYC.
Reilly’s thoughts on the restaurant?

You know, when Sharpton and I walked in, it was like big commotion and everything, but everybody was very nice. And I couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it's run by blacks, primarily black patronship.

Somehow, this fool finds a way to shock me more and more. Either he’s really Bill the Totally Na├»ve White Man or he’s the most racist man on tv (Rush is on the radio).

After being "amazed" that Black people don't sit around singing Soulja Boy at dinner, Bill and another clueless caller discuss how hip hop has given America the wrong image of Black people. They agree that women of hip hop dance around “half naked and spinning around like they’re on meth”. No, BOO, the Britney’s, Lindsay’s, and Paris’ have that on lock. There is no need to put "Meth" and "Black people" in the same sentence.

They go on to say a lot of ignut ish. It’s pretty clear that O’Reilly is stuck in the 50s. Step into 2007, Bill. We's free and act reeeeal good now!

I would like to know exactly what Bill O’Reilly thought went on in black establishments? I guess he pictured everybody sitting around in wife beaters, rapping, smoking blunts, pitt bull fighting, and screaming orders at each other? Please. That’s what we do at HOME.

Kim, Sarah, and Diddy

Kim Porter vs. Sarah Chapman



I think, first of all, that Sarah looks like a light skinned version of Kim Porter. You could say that Diddy seems to have a certain taste . . . kinda like Eddie Murphy's taste in women pre-divorce. But Diddy's women are prettier. Smarter? Not. But definitely prettier.

Kim and Puff and Sarah have a triangle similar to what many baby mama's and long term boyfriends have. The only difference is, those fools were smart enough to get paid, but not smart enough to get wifed. Still, they were BOTH smarter than Keisha and Tay-nesha up the street, sharing the same baby daddy and screaming at each other on borrowed Cricket phones. Sarah and Kim can take an exotic trip to chill - on child support payments alone; Key and Tay better hope that nick sack they came up on is some kill.

It's Over O.J.


I've been gone a LONG time, but of course O.J. bought me out of seclusion.

Orenthal James Simpson (because that's who he'll be on each and every commissary note) must think it's a joke. It aint! After being hauled off to jail like he'd just been caught killing a blonde and her friend, OJ joked:

"I thought what goes on in Vegas stays in Vegas."
No, Black Man, what goes on in jail trumps what goes on in Vegas. Note to OJ: They got you nigga. No bail and no more breaks, Mr. Simpson. If you don't get a trial by judge, an all white jury in Bootuck, MS will give you every second a black man can face.

OJ will be older and stiffer than Bill Cosby when they let him out.

But what do you expect from a man who wrote, "If I Did It?"
Did OJ really think he was going to get away with confessing? When a black man gets away with that kind of double murder his best bet is to shut the ___ up and lay real, real, low. Like, almost dead. Not dance around with white women and writing about how he killed 2 white people ... and then armed robbery?

OJ is more of a nigga than I know he ever planned to be.

Don Imus: Part 2



First, who gives a ish about Don Imus? Second, what black man really gives a ish about those nappy headed hoes?

I hear black men screaming foul like they really care. And I see Al and Jesse foaming at the mouth behind Imus’ remarks — but who are you kidding? The average black man wouldn’t claim the captain of that basketball team if she was his sister. (And who could blame you? Those Rutger dykes look like they can bench press Chevy's, but that's not the point.)

Imus doesn't bother me. I don't care about the opinion of some near death white man. But I do care about black men swiping credit cards up black women's butts in videos. And I do care that the black women allow it.

I don't want to waste time seeking an authentic apology from Don Imus. (And, yes, he will die before he's fired.) I want to figure out WTF we’re going to do about this crop of disrespectful black boys coming up under a crop of disrespectful black men. And I want to talk about why the girls allow themselves to be so disrespected.

If White men had regularly used terms of degradation for their women, wouldn’t we sometimes call a White woman that degrading term, also? If we always heard white men singing about “stringy haired gold diggers” wouldn’t we start to think of white women as stringy haired gold diggers, too?

I really can’t ask - or expect - Imus to respect my sister if he's witnessing my brother spitting in her face 24 x 7.

Remy Ma Released from Terror Squad

This would be my first Remy Ma post ever. She’s below zero on my radar. Frankly, Rema Ma is invisible to me; I catch glimpses of her here and there, but never give her conscious thought. Then today I read that she's no longer with the Terrozzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Anyway, Remy's fan might drop by my page, and I wouldn't want to piss her off by not posting this breaking news:



South Bronx, NY rapper Remy Ma has officially been released from her deal with Terror Squad/SRC/Universal.

Remy Ma first requested that she be released shortly after the release of her debut album, There's Something About Remy, but due to legal hang-ups and bitter negotiations her status as a free agent was not made official until today (Apr. 9).

"I felt that I had out grown them I had been dealing with Joe and Steve since I was 18 years old," Remy Ma told AllHipHop.com. "We no longer had the same goals. They're used to me being 'little' Remy who wanted all the fly sneakers, a nice whip and the biggest chain you ever saw on a girl."

Incidentally, Remy’s wearing House of Dereon. Remy makes it look like something you'd steal from the Flea Market, huh?

Houston Nurse Kills 3 in Fire


Firestarter and Mobile Home Owner, Misty Ann Weaver



A licensed vocational nurse has been arrested and accused of starting a fire in her office that killed three people and injured six others.

The March 28 fire spread throughout the fifth floor of a six-story building. Three firefighters were among the injured.


Misty Ann Weaver, 34, was scheduled to make her first court appearance Tuesday, charged with three counts of felony murder and one count of first-degree arson. Weaver, arrested late Saturday, remained in jail Sunday in lieu of $330,000 bail, said Harris County Sheriff's Department spokesman Lt. John Martin.

Authorities alleged that Weaver started the fire because she had neglected to finish an accreditation audit that was due to her boss, a plastic surgeon. "She was fearful of being discharged by the doctor," Fire Department investigator James Snowden said. "Therefore, she figured that by starting a small fire, it would more or less postpone the audit information."

Investigators did not say how the fire was started. Martin said Weaver did not appear to have an attorney to speak for her yet. There was no telephone listing for her in local directories.

What, really, can you say about this? Ms. Nurse had the option to 1) WALK OFF THE JOB, 2) SHRED THE EVIDENCE, or 3) 'FESS UP. I've done all three and life goes on. But she chose to start a fire and run? What a LOSER.

More here, but I had to dig this piece out:

She had worked for Capriotti for about eight years and her duties included "a little bit of everything," he said from his home in Tanglewood.

"She was a wonderful employee," Capriotti said. "She has always been top-notch as far as performance and attitude. It's just a total shock. It's just almost beyond our comprehension."
He said he was aware that Weaver had ongoing financial trouble — she filed for bankruptcy protection, apparently to prevent foreclosure on her mobile home — but did not think the trouble was "pressing." He said that she had no access to office funds.

As for her behavior, it did not change before or after the fire, Capriotti said. She continued to work in his relocated office.

After reading the whole piece, I almost feel sorry for her. Almost.

Calling all Nappy Headed Hoes and Jiggaboos

IMUS in the Morning is apparently suffering from dementia, because he went absolutely crazy a few days ago with the racial insults.

To be honest, I don’t expect old white men to consider black women anything other than nappy headed hoes, but I still think Imus should get the boot. I’m offended at his remarks, yes, but I'm also singing with joy because his super boring morning show may FINALLY come to an end!!!



“That’s some rough girls from Rutgers,”
“Man, they got tattoos...”
“Some hardcore hos,”
“That’s some nappy-headed hos there, I’m going to tell you that,”
^^ I'm trying not to agree!

R. Kelly - FLIRT

R. Kelly - FLIRT



No for real, I LOOOOVE this song. I hated the R'uh for a long time, but this one won me back over.

Does Jay-Z Have a Kid or Not?


According to US mag he just might... but who cares? R. Kelly pissed on that little girl and I'mma still Flirt. And as long as Jay keeps making good music, he can keep making $1m dollar babies on the low.

Ok - let's suppose Jay did pay the girl $1m to keep his name off the birth certificate. And let's suppose he kept it quiet because he'd just snagged Beyonce and didn't want anything to spoil that magical union. (Let's keep in mind that the Knowles' don't play about illegitimate kids. We all know they made Solange marry her baby daddy just to save face. Too bad Sonja Norwood couldn't pull that one off... but I'm drifting...)

So, if Jay is guilty of all of this (he denies the "ridiculous rumors" here), does this make him a sorry dad? Yes. Does this make him a deceitful liar? Yes. Does this make him crazy behind Bey? Possibly. BUT - does this detract from his skill and business savvy? Nope. I really don't understand why this is such a shock to everyone. Image-minded Jay-Z has never wanted anything to spoil his image. And most importantly - don't we love him for his selfish arrogance?

Beyonce is really not playing with y'all. Nice video. Shakira got a nice lil Upgrade herself with this one. I've noticed that Beyonce has to do more and more to keep that shock factor, though. Next step is soft porn for real.

OSCAR POST

CONGRATULATIONS to Jennifer Hudson for winning the Best Supporting Actress award!!!


Yes, she did that. Initially, I didn't believe she deserved an Oscar for her performance -- how hard can it be to play an angry, black woman...? But, Jen's voice and her "extra something" made Effie very memorable. I would have voted for her. Congrats.


Not really sure how I feel about the jacket, but I thought the dress was OK and she looked really pretty.


"I'mma put a root on you, Big Girl!"


This is at an Oscar's event. Not the best look, Mr. Latifah. Kimora looks lovely. Puff is Puff.


JHud and the other girl from Dreamgirls chatting at a party in Jen's honor. No, Beyonce wasn't there.


Beyonce in her Armani dress. ~sigh~ The pale green is uninspired and the thick rope sleeve looks dated.


Kim Fields is pretty damn pregnant, isn't she?


Nick and his new Victoria's Secret model wife. Wow. Let's see if he can get his Will Smith on now that he has the one thing white folks respect more than money: marriage and family.

Update: I hear he's not really married. OK dammit.


The man on the far right is responsible for JHud wearing that space fantasy flight jacket to the Oscars.

The Dreamgirls performance @ the Oscars.



I'm really happy for Jennifer. She's a super talented, gracious singer. I have always loved Beyonce, too, but she sang so hard in this performance. They did a nice job overall, though. Both can really sing, but have different styles. Jennifer...my God that girl has a VOICE. Akoni, Akina, Noni Juice...whatever the cute little Dreamgirl's name is...has a great voice also.

Supposedly, Beyonce knows all about the baby mama and the son.

I guess this is pretty interesting. I do wonder why the baby mama agreed to a measly $1M to keep Jigga's name off the birth certificate, though. That's just a birthday gift for Bey.

But seriously -- if the kid has been hidden and ignored, that's real dead beat.

Update: I hear it's all just another Jay-Z rumor. Oh well. Maybe a video of Jay and Bey boning will surface and soothe the disappointment that Jay isn't really a deadbeat dad?

K-Ci Contributes to "Who's Got Jokes?"

At the bottom of this post is K-Ci's performance on TV-One's "Who's Got Jokes?" Apparently, K-Ci got all the jokes.


He starts out gently lowering himself onto some grown man's shoulders.


I think his "carrier" even caresses his knee.


Then, ya boy tries to get the ladies hot by sticking out his tongue. Definitely misses his mark.


How does a grown man tell another grown man, "Ok, put me down"?


Not even Mo'Nique is turned on by this seductive shitty mess.


Of course he wouldn't be K-Ci without taking off his shirt. Check it out though -- he's updated his style: naked and leanin and rockin with it.

My review of the vocals:
Out of four stars, this is a 1.5 at best. Halfway through, Jo Jo shows up and confirms that he, too, is either flying real high or drunker than Mel Gibson. K-Ci sounds like that old black man in the choir who can't hear nor see and definitely can't sing. And didn't Jo Jo used to be able to sing?

K- Ci better clean up his act and get next to MJB so he can catch her if Kendu lets her fall.

Watch and laugh here:
