Everytime I see Shar Jackson I can't help but think how fucking worthless she is becoming. I know that sounds harsh but its the awful, pitiful truth. She is like that young teenage cousin who has five kids but is always out at the club. Anyway, Shar was recently spotted making out with not only Britney Spear's ex-husband Jason Alexander but my favorite California thug Ray J. Aww wait a minute!
Superhead Back On The Prowl
Ex on the rebound: Looks like self-labeled Video Vixen Karrine Steffans has wasted no time finding a replacement for HBO host Bill Maher. It's an old boyfriend, singer-actor Ray J. The other night at Mel's Diner in L.A., Steffans, who split with Maher just before the Golden Globes, swapped spit with Ray J while Serena Williams and her entourage looked on in amazement."It was certainly hot and heavy," said a spy. Ray J's technique got a rave review in Steffans' recent memoir, "Confessions of a Video Vixen," in which the author reveals: "When Ray and I made love, we would go for hours on end, each hour more satisfying than the last." I'll draw a veil over the rest.

Aaliyah + Jay-Z Pictures?
The internet is going b-a-n-a-n-a-s over pictures that recently surfaced of Jay-Z and Aaliyah playing it close. I've seen the pictures and heard of of the gossip along with them but I think its a little tacky to talk about someone who isn't here to defend themselves. And that's all I got to say about that like Forrest.

Ray J Is About As Gangsta As K. Fed
AP: So you're a former gangbanger?
Ray J: Yeah. As a teenager ... I was young and just trying to find myself.
AP: I've read that you've been shot at so many times, you can't remember all of them. Did they ever shoot at you for being Brandy's brother?
Ray J: (Laughs) No. When you live in Carson and Compton and Long Beach and you growin' up in the neighborhood, getting shot at is just a regular thing. If you're hanging out at the school after hours with your friends and y'all shootin' dice and people are drinking and smoking and it's a gang environment and it's a party life constantly, that's where another rival gang targets. (more) Wow, I haven't heard the term gangbanger used since '95. This nigga really needs to stop having delusions of grandeur. As pointed out by Ty, he was on that damn Sinbad show back in the day. Just because you played your older sister's "gangsta" cousin/brother/whatever on Moesha doesn't give you street cred. You will always be Brandy's little brother. Learn your role like Solange.
Hey Mama, Big Mama
It's nothing like standing in front of people double your size to make you look smaller, no? I'm not mad at Nia though, she looks good to me. I'm still not too sure about the short/stockings combo but hey, whatever works. I've never come across a white woman who is referred to as a big momma, I'm still loving those look-a-likes in the back.
It's always big news around the internet when Janet decides to shows her face. These pictures are of her leaving a Sushi joint with a friend. The chubby Janet is starting to grow on me a little bit. She has that kindergarden teacher thing going on.

Due to itis that was beyond my control, I slept through the entire Jamie Foxx special. I felt a little guilty at first but once I started going through my email I realized I didn't miss much. I hate to say it but it looks like we got punk'd. How was it? Holla back.
I was able to catch Jada's performance with Wicked Wisdom on Lettermen tonight thanks to a reminder from Butta. I'm not much of a rock critic but my ears know what they like and didn't enjoy that screaming shit she was doing one bit. It was damn near a Mad TV parody. You know you've fucked up when white people are looking at you nuts.
I'm Just Saying
I like Stevie Wonder and all like the next person but this is just wrong. Somebody needs to fix this.
The Official "We Want Some Attention" Post
Quick questions: Is the poster for Killa Season supposed to look just like the one for Paid In Full? Why does Hell Rell look like the world's oldest living negro on it? And where was Jim Jones and the rest of the Big Bird Gang? Poor Juelz, that nigga looked like he couldn't believe it himself. I was waiting to see some flicks of Jim looking like he just rolled out of the bed. Pictures are worth a 1,000 words so these don't say shit. Ay!
Here We Go Again
Some ladies are proving that it might be best to think twice before creeping. If you thought Karrine Steffans' "Confessions of a Video Vixen" was causing people to talk last year, wait until you get a load of what Carmen Bryan, Nas' former girlfriend and mother of his daughter, has to say. She has an autobiography called "Sex, Drugs and Hip-Hop -- Oh, and Did I Mention Love?" coming out soon, and she's not holding anything back about her relationship with Nas or her alleged affairs with Jay-Z and NBA superstar Allen Iverson. . .
". . . Way after we kind of broke up, I asked him about Lil' Kim, Eve, Mary J. Blige. The only one Nas ever admitted to dating was Mary."As for Jay, she implied that he came along at the right time. "I was so in love with Nas at the very beginning, I couldn't even look at another man. But it began to fade. I guess I really took notice to it when I took Jay-Z's phone number." (more)

I Always Thought Brandy Look Like An Alien But Damn
Brandy Norwood, the actress and musician best known solely by her first name, is extending her talents into the video game world. She will provide her voice and likeness, and help develop the story line for a sci-fi/action game that will ship in the first quarter of 2007. The game comes from Matty/Markus Games, a Los Angeles-based firm founded by director Matty Rich ("Straight Out of Brooklyn") and video game veteran Frederic Markus ("Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure.") Brandy, who has sold more than 14 million albums worldwide, also will develop an original soundtrack for the as-yet-untitled game. Besides hearing this exclusive music in the new game, the release schedule calls for the CD of the soundtrack to go on sale right before the video game ships. (more via Rich)
Were you wondering the story behind this photo?
Well, wait no more.They were taken at a convenient store in Alpharetta, Georgia and proves that the singer is back on crack or something.
The word is that Whitney Houston is back on crack. Jamal Mitchell of Marietta, Georgia emailed us photos that he took with the singer. "The once-stunning Grammy winner was photographed at an Atlanta gas station at 4 a.m. one morning last month, looking disheveled and bizarre in pajama bottoms, and a $50,000 fur coat and a messy wig.
Jamal: I was pumping gas and noticed her driving up in a Porsche Cheyenne SUV. She was alone as she pulled into the parking lot of the convenient store near GA 400 in Alpharetta. I told my partner, "Yo man, that's Whitney Houston! " She got out of the vehicle and purchased 5 or 6 packs of cigarettes. approached her and asked if I could take a picture. She said, "Sure, Do you have a camera?" I ran to my car where my camera was and she took three pictures with me. She was nice, but she wasn't the Whitney Houston I was use to seeing on TV and in music videos. She was very thin too and her breath smelled like liquor and smoke. (thanks Mo!)

Respect Will Smith's Gangsta
Lately it seems like nothing can go right for Bow Wow, the 18-year old, multi-platinum, self-proclaimed "Ohio playa", as in the last week he has been belittled by some of the game's current artists and moguls. "...Yea, Paul Wall did Grillz", the no longer "Lil" Bow Wow said on a Philadelphia radio station. But surprisingly at another time on the same show, when asked about doing his grill, Paul Wall said, "What? Nah. Ain't nothin' like that. I aint even know he old enough. I think I would still have to get his parents permission."
Another interview by another Philadelphia area radio station placed Will Smith with the "job" of answering to Bow Wow's accusations of being a bubble gum rapper. But Smith refused to respond saying that, "A grown man don't answer to no child. I'm a grown ass man. I cut records before his momma let somebody cut to have him." Smith also added, "My worst movie (Wild Wild West) grossed almost twice as your best movie (Like Mike). Check the records and read a book young man."
Do you love MASTER P? Do you love DANCING WITH THE STARS? Do you love the man also know as a Rap artist, music industry mogul and accomplished athlete? Do you also love his adorable partner Ashly DelGrosso (who thought she a goner the first week out)? Then click here to visit Keep-P-Dancing.com. Seriously.
Master P has a message for today's youth. "I wanna show kids, 'Do something else wit your life, you don't gotta [succumb to the streets]. I've never danced before. I grew up in the ghetto. I just want to show kids they can try something new. Most kids in these communities live until they're 18 or 19. If I made it out, they can make it out. I want to show them some change."
Move Over Oprah, There Is A New Black Jesus In Town
My mouth dropped like Superhead at a Murder Inc party when I saw this on Dlisted. This is what Kanye had to say about his favorite subject - - himself:
"I'm the most controversial artist this year. . ."
"I'm saying that as an observation, not as a stunt; from the outside looking in, you know?"
"You should give it to me because I'm doing my job . . ."
"I'm making good music, and it's interesting and changing the world and everything, so you put me on the cover. I appreciate it. I don't want to come off, like, ungracious, but I feel like I had to fight to get on these covers."
The sad thing is I'm probably going to buy the magazine now.
Quote of the Day"I've seen a lot of myself [recently], especially with Usher," he notes. "He basically did my whole show -- he does my whole show as if it was me [onstage].

Freshly Squeezed Flicks
Last time we saw Tocarra in a Black men's magazine she was looking like a damn fool but there is always room for redemption. Photoshopped or not I like the pictures much more than her last spread. Visit CL for the flicks from her appearance in King.
I'm not sure where Naomi was walking off to. Maybe slap-a-bitch-in-the-chest-anonymous, eh? Who knows.
Solange and Elise Neal are two people I wouldn't expect to see in the club together. Were there any remotely attractive guys in the spot? From the look of things it wasn't! Check out Indmix.com for more pictures.
I'm going to hell for that.
Aretha Franklin will join New Orleans singer Aaron Neville in performing the national anthem at next month's Super Bowl. They will be accompanied by another veteran New Orleans musician, pianist Dr. John. "The combination of all three should present a very memorable performance," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Detroit Free Press. Franklin, Neville and a 150-person backing choir will sing to a taped vocal track to be recorded in Detroit several days before the Feb. 5 game at Detroit's Ford Field, the Free Press reported on its website.

Jacki-O Is One Poe Girl
Jacki-O, who scored a hit with the sexually charged rap "Nookie," has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, declaring debts totaling $144,225 and assets of only $1,340. According to the Miami Herald, Jacki-O (born Angela Kohn), filed bankruptcy late last year, not only to clear herself of debts owed to the IRS and merchants like Verizon and Bally's Total Fitness, but also to be released from her recording contract with Miami's Poe Boy Entertainment. A spokesman for TVT Records says that while Jacki-O's petition seeks to free her from obligations with Poe Boy Entertainment, she is not leaving TVT Records. "An artist would like to live a very fabulous lifestyle," the sexy female rapper told the Miami Herald. "But it takes money to look like money." The female rapper best known for battling Foxy Brown on wax as well as in a rumored studio fight, Jacki-O released her first album Poe Little Rich Girl (Poe Boy/TVT) in 2004. When I first read this I laughed to myself. This is coming from the same chick who claimed that "pussy paid her bills" right? Obviously her cooter wasn't too hot then. Poe Boy Entertainment, ya'll.
Like many of you I was glued to my television Friday to watch Oprah's interview with Jaimee Foxworth. Hated it! Oprah claimed that she didn't watch any of Jamie's movies for herself but I think that's a lie. Like my homeboy Chris told me the other night, people think that she is black Jesus but that's another post. Couldn't you just imagine Oppy and Gayle sitting down watching "Baby Got Back 53" together sharing a tub of popcorn? That doesn't sound too far fetched to me. The interview didn't really shed any new light on the whole ordeal. If you watched Jamiee's interview on 20/20 last year then you didn't miss much at all. So what did you think of the show?
Eve Can't Get Enough of That Delicious White Meat
Like I've been saying for the past few months now, white boys are the new pink. This weekend I am going in search for me one so we can play "catch a slave, freak a slave" in my backyard. Okay that wasn't politcally correct but you get the point. Anyway, Eve has come a very long way. Remember them kitchen ass braids she was rocking in her first video? Sure sometimes I forget that she's a rapper and all but the girl looks great to me. Who cares about race, y'know? Long as you're happy then I'm happy for you. Plus we've all seen the sex tape. Eve has been playing with long white objects for quite sometime now.

Picture of the Week!
That picture with Halle Berry and that dude is a fake. I use to be on this board where this chick would post pictures of herself that were 'tampered' with and since then I have had a keen eye when it comes to pictures. This is similar to the pic of Johnny Gil and Eddie Murphy.
The picture in question.
Take a look at the floor, it's slightley bent up on the left side, halle's side And it looks 'higher'. There are NO shadows whats so ever also. Its so dark outside but they come out so bright, no flash can do that. The rain coat thing that she is wearing doesnt look right. The only way it can look like that is if there was a lonnnng as slit in the middle
AND lastly, why she all dressed down and dude is all 'casual.' As a matter of fact, his left hand is cut and pasted there. To make it seem like he was wearing a long jacket. The lighting on that hand is off. And it just looks...ahh goddamit Fresh the pic is fake and its so easy to do it when everything is black.
Eddie and Johnny's pic
Its the same floor but with paint to make it look like dirty stepped on gum. Check out johnny's right leg. Bottom line...this was a bad job. - Crazy Baby

Since I kept receiving emails asking me how I felt about Cam's verbal assault on Jay-Z I'll give my little opinion. But before I set this post off let me say something about Rich:
1. You stole the "Ultimate Hustler" concept from Dame . . .then gave it back
2. You 42 years old and you rocking Jeezy the Snowman shirts
3. You got some kitchen ass braids
I know you.
See how stupid that was? Yeah, exactly.
So I finally took the time out of my day to download Cam's little song. If I would've known that he called Jay-Z "Fraggle Rock" I probably would have downloaded this shit last night. I love Jim Henson! But like someone said earlier, Cam's a little too Shug Avery for me with all the "you shol is ugly" disses. Thanks Cameron Giles for telling us something we didn't know. It's not like he was exactly gorgeous when he first came out. He can thank that little stomach problem 'cause Killa shed some weight and came out all chistled faced and what not. Don't get it confused, I still think he looks good, but c'mon now. That ugly shit is a little 4th grade.
And he had Beyonce singing about slanging crack? Big fucking deal. Raise your hand if you brought that second album Cam is talking about.
One thing that I am glad about all of this drama is no one is talking about 50 Cent for once.

While I was watching Skating With Celebrities (more on that later) last night, all hell broke loose over the internet! I haven't heard the track yet but from the look of things it doesn't sound too interesting. If you're a former crackhead life is good for you right now. Flava's Flav has a guilty pleasure on his hands, Bobby may go on tour with SWV, and Todd Bridges in on television ice skating with a white woman. It don't get no better. Hate it or love it, crackheads got their swagger back!
Wendy: Do you go to church? Bobby: I am a church.
- Now there is a debate of sorts about Diddy's new ad campaign for his fragrance. I could care two broke dicks about it personally but some people are taking offense due to the lack of sisters in the ads. The thing that makes me mad is that dude wants someone to pay $300 for 2.5 oz. for some shit that probably smells like 3 day old sink water. Now this is nothing to a baller but for the average Joenelle like myself this is a hell nah. So please Mr. Diddy take a seat. Thanks in advance. - The word for Michael Jackson today is J-O-B (thanks Elliott)

My Two Moms
My girl Aja hit me with this picture of Star + Al from the couple's official website. Apparently the two hired a graphic designer to retouch the photos but the designer only touched (I had to type that) one of Star's breasteses. I have got to meet this person and shake their hand! Anyway, once word got that one of Star's tit-tays were jacked up, the photo gallery was shut down for "maintenance". Don't cry yourself to sleep just yet, its back up. Once again Al looks as gorgeous as ever. Did you know that his middle name was Scales? Oh the irony. Mini I'm Just SayingWhy does Al look like Star's cabana boy?

Ah Hell To The Nah! Whitney and Bobby To Divorce?
Are Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown finally ending their troubled 14-year marriage? A Lowdown spy reports that the 36-year-old Brown - who shares a 12-year-old daughter with the 42-year-old R&B superstar - has been telling friends and acquaintances they're splitsville. The weekend before last, during a visit to the Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., Brown was spotted chatting up pretty women backstage while the all-girl group SWV (which stands for Sisters With Voices) performed along with male groups Guy and Blackstreet.
"While flirting with a bunch of women, they asked, 'What's up with your wife?' Bobby said, 'We ain't together no more. We're getting a divorce,' " says the spy. (more via Eskay)
Once again I hope that this is a rumor. Local law officials take notice: I will yell "Radddddddiooooo" and throw a trash can inside of my town's racist pizza parlor if Nippy and Bobby ever split. There is light at the end of the tunnel for fans of B.Brown such as myself. A possible tour with SWV? Christmas all over.

The Denzel/Sanaa Rumor Makes Its Way To The National Enquirer
Denzel Washington and his wife of 22 years may be headed for trouble -- and insiders say it's because of the fear that the Oscar winner is a serial cheater! Sources have told The National Enquirer that 50-year-old Denzel's long-rumored extra-marital activity -- particularly rumors of a relationship with pretty actress Sanaa Lathan, 34 -- have caused major upheaval in what was once considered one of Hollywood's most rock solid marriages.
Said a friend: "People have speculated about Denzel having affairs for a long time. But I wouldn't be surprised if the recent reports about Sanaa have gotten under his wife Pauletta's skin like nothing else has." Indeed sources say the couple could be headed for divorce after a furious bust-up that ended in Denzel moving out of the couple's $10 million house in California.Pick up this week's issue of The National Enquirer to read more.
