What’s up y’all?! Here is the dirt…
Mos Def done got his behind back in the studio to bring us a new joint called “Casa Bey.” The single came out yesterday and is available as a free download. The new CD, “The Ecstatic” will be released on June 9. Now I love Mos as an actor, but to be honest I haven’t heard a tight Mos Def joint since he was with Talib and they were Black Star. Don’t get me wrong, Mos is one of the most GIFTED lyricists ever to hold a mic, but his production could use a lil’ work. Check out the song here and see for yourself.
Who says Ciara ain’t tryin’ to take a page from the Beyonce School of Marketing?? Cici is giving away concert tickets to the best dancer in her “Dance for Ciara” contest. The Ciara camp is looking for the best 30-60 second video of you dancing to “Love Sex Magic.” She will select a winner each week for six weeks and then a grand prize winner will be selected. The grand prize winner will win a trip to see Ciara in concert with a chance to meet Ciara. Check out all of the details here.
Side Bar-If y’all recall, Beyonce did the same thing a while back and the fat dude from YouTube won dancing to “Single Ladies.” I ain’t mad at CiCi. Go’on girl, get yo’ fan base by any means necessary. If Rihanna can be a star, so can you!
Diddy caught kicking azz out in Vegas…literally and figuratively. According to my sources, Fluff Daddy got cast as a record producer in the upcoming film “Greek.” Check out all of the details here.
Side Bar-Y’all really thought Puffy was scrapping? Be for real. The man had a man to carry his umbrella for him. Did you really think he was gonna shake the juice out of that S-Curl (no ladies and gentlemen…he ain’t got “good hur”) or ruin his pancake 25 (make up) on some random dude on the street?
To all of my sistaz out there, young and old, I have an important announcement to make. DON’T DRINK THE WATER…especially if Lil’ Wayne been bathing in the lake!! There is a strange chemical in the water that comes around every nine or ten years that creates a major shift in our population and it goes by the name of PREGNANCY! If you ain’t tryin’ to get knocked the hell up…stay away from da water! I know for some, the announcement came a lil’ too late…especially for up and coming actress Lauren London. According to my sources, she sipped the water five months ago and now her tummy is on swole. However…that ain’t the dirt!! Rumor has it that Lil’ Wayne is her baby’s daddy!! Can we say YUCK?! Congrats to the new mommy…I think!
Side Bar-Lauren sweetie, all I wanna know is how you got past the smell. You know that boy don’t smell quite right. Nuff said…
What happens when you spend most of your life in Hollywood and you still don’t blow up? You call Bishop Eddie Long for some financial support. At least that is what Robert Townsend did. According to my sources, Bishop Long and Robert Townsend teamed up and created Bell Town Productions. Apparently, Robert was tired of seeing the horrible images of blacks being portrayed on television and in movies and decided to do something about it. He is the creative mind and Bishop Long was brought in for financial backing. Check out the full story here.
Side Bar-Y’all know that I love me some Robert Townsend but let’s be real. How many people other than “us” can pick him out of a line up? Nuff said…
Okay, this ain’t got nuffin’ to do wit’ nuffin’ but I ain’t know that Eddie Long was a GW Bush supporter!!
My “boo” Jamie Foxx will be hosting the 2009 BET Awards next month and I cannot wait. Although T-Pain did a fabulous job at the last minute last year and BET wanted to invite him back, y’all know T-Pain still ain’t quite right since his accident.
Side Bar-Did I mention that “Blame It” is my FAVORITE song of 2009 thus far??! T-Pain is a genius. T-Pain if you are out there, hurry up and get right ’cause the rap game is missing it’s number one hook man. Nuff said…
Every now and then I have a random outburst and here is this week’s; LEAVE WANDA SYKES THE HELL ALONE!! Y’all know she ain’t tell nuffin’ but the truth and she was FUNNY. Even the Prez had to chuckle to himself. She is a comedian and NOT a political figure people.
Side Bar-Wanda if you are out there, please know that you did the darn thing and you are still my sista! Skee Wee love!!
More D-Wade divorce drama… According to my sources D-Wade’s soon to be former ex-wife done got kicked to the curb by her lawyer and has yet to replace him. Word on the street is that he dropped her because they could not get in touch with each other and a whole bunch of miscommunication was going on. However, if you ask me…I smell something just a tad bit FISHY!
Side Bar-Siouvaughn girrrrrrl, if you are out there please know that you may have to venture out beyond Chicago to find a lawyer. The CHI loves them some D-Wade. You do the math. Nuff said…
Last but not least…FINALLY somebody heard US!! The L.A. Times did a HUGE write up on my FAVORITE television show, CW’s The Game. Make sure you all keep making noise so that we can see more folks that look like us during prime time! Click here to read the article.
Side Bar-At the beginning of last month I had the opportunity to interview Barry Floyd and not only is the Philly native hilariously funny on screen, he is just as funny in general conversation. He is MAD talented and I promised to plug his “Purple Stuff TV.” I mentioned it several times before and if you didn’t see it that last time…here it is again. Be sure to subscribe. It’s “Dave Chapelle” funny. Enjoy!
That’s all the dirt for now. Holla back at your girl…
