I just don’t understand why some individuals would take the time to enhance some attribute on their body’s and then get mad. It’s either Yay or Nay. Most of the attention you gain was because of the donk.
*In Nicki Minaj’s latest fashion layout and interview for BlackBook magazine, the writer let it be known that Nicki’s publicist sent a memo saying – do not ask about her “ass”, literally, before he got started with his in depth interview with the platinum selling diva (as if it’s now a secret to her ass being real or fake). *blank stare* I mean, really Nicki???
On her “Monster” personae:
“When I started making those weird voices, a lot of people told me how whack it was,” she says, naming a few label higher-ups who warned her against straying too far from tradition. “‘What the fuck are you doing?’ they’d say. ‘Why do you sound like that? That doesn’t sound sexy to me.’ And then I started saying, Oh, that’s not sexy to you? Good. I’m going to do it more. Maybe I don’t want to be sexy to you today.”
“I’m definitely playing a role,” she says. “I’m an entertainer, and that’s what entertainers do. That’s what people pay for. They don’t pay to see me roll out of bed with crust in my eyes, and say: Hey guys, this is me, authentic. They pay for a show.”
“I do feel pressure to satisfy people now.”
On being compared to Lady Gaga:
The marijuana on the buses was detected by a drug dog, said Agent Joe Trevino. The rapper, whose real name is DeWayne Michael Carter, Jr., was among a dozen being detained from his group. They were later released.
Trevino said the buses were en route to Laredo, Texas, from a concert stop in Hidalgo.
The case has been referred to the Brooks County Sheriff’s Office.
Calls to Carter’s representatives were not immediately returned Friday.
The Louisiana native was the 2008 best-selling artist, with 2.8 million records sold, and is signed to Cash Money Records.
The rapper is scheduled to begin a prison sentence in February stemming from gun charges in New York.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta keep drama going. Rumors circulated at the end of last season that Sheree would be dropped from the housewives. Well, the DIVAS, Kim and Ne-Ne are asking for more money and it seems that their spots on the show may become available to another socialite if these two can’t come to an agreement with the producers.

“All of the recent rumors and accusations that are being circulated about me are 100% false. They are disgusting and vile; and they are being spread by individuals with their own sick agendas. The purported documents that are also being circulated are forgeries. I have never met or known anyone by the name of “AGoldstein” or Laura Goldstein or Ashley Goldstein, which I believe are fictitious names. I have never been represented by an attorney named Goldstein. For someone to go to such depths to assassinate my character and slander my good name is truly criminal.

So sad to see how far people will go to bring down someone and their career.
Nikki Minaj looks good, damn good but I don’t think her rapping skills will earn her an A+. The first female of Def Jam talks about somethings I was implying about Miss Minaj. Your attention has been gained due to your looks not your rhymes. You can call me a hater all you want but that is the truth. I hear nothing but little Wayne when she opens her mouth and that Barbie shit sucks. Why do rappers get so into character when they create an alter ego. We saw what happened to T.I and Tip. I’m sure he has been put in his place.
The following excerpt is from our favorite blogger (lol) Sandra Rose.com:
I love old school rappers who put these wack young’ns back in their lane. Most of you might be too young to remember Nikki D, the first female rapper signed to Def Jam. But in an interview with XXL magazine, she’s speaking out on a disturbing new trend of females with artificially enhanced body parts being labeled MCs.
Nicki Minaj is a lame Lil Wayne wannabe who sounds like a fool. The idiots who co-sign this tramp have no concept of what real hip hop is or they would stop looking at her fake azz long enough to actually hear her wack delivery.
No wonder hip hop is dead.
XXLMag.com: So what do you think about some of the new female MCs that are out now?
Nikki D: There aren’t any out! Who’s out? You mean, Nicki Minaj? That’s not a rapper. That’s a girl with her ass on the screen. Nice hairdo and she’s saying some things but she’s not a rapper. She’s not an MC. She’s an artist. She’s an entertainer. There’s a difference. She can go out there and open her mouth and say whatever but people ain’t listening to her. They looking at her. And rapping is about the skill. It ain’t about your fat ass. It ain’t about your set of titties. It ain’t about that long-ass weave.
I am blaming this one on twitter, only the fact that I didn’t know what was going on. I had to disconnect my twitter so I could get some work done. But it appears that legendary filmmaker Spike Lee called the Great Tyler Perry’s Tv shows and film a bunch of “coonery”. Why Black people why? I know you all have heard this over and over again but why can’t we all just get along? Tyler Perry did not like this at all.
On stereotypical images of blacks in the media:
“Each artist should be allowed to pursue their artistic endeavors but I still think there is a lot of stuff out today that is “coonery” and buffoonery. I know it’s making a lot of money and breaking records, but we can do better.
I am a huge basketball fan, and when I watch the games on TNT, I see these two ads for these two shows (Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns” and “House of Payne”) and I am scratching my head. … We got a black president and we going back to Mantan Moreland and Sleep ‘n’ Eat?”
The Dryer Buzz wrote a very good article on the situation about Spike Lee and Tyler Perry.
The Drama – In this corner we have , an Icon of his generation. Picked up the gauntlet to make movies where those before him left off . Pretty much he had to start from scratch. Spike can be credited with opening doors, perhaps doing the “cross over” thing or “multicultural” or however you want to put.
Spike goes in the history books no doubt. Therefore Spike, a voice of a movie making generation is often asked and shares his opinion about those coming after him. Here comesrepping his generation. Perry coming the stage route (already criticized by “traditional and historic theatre”, entertains an audience judged harshly by “historic” standards but coming in at a strong 60%. To a certain generation, it makes money, so it makes sense. To another generation, it can make all the money in the world but is it good for a people? We the people divided 60/30/10 will have this argument forever.
For Tyler’s work, he also goes into the history books. So when Spike said this and then Tyler said that movie goers didn’t much notice. Except the 30% watch news and read blogs where the comment was made into a spectacle. Now fans have started taking sides. But Spike had a point. However Tyler also had a point also about the under-served audience. But the argument doesn’t stop there because they both get pissed and dissed when it comes time to distribute their movies whether Madea is at the table or not.
Does this means its time for somebody else, perhaps in another generation or gender to pick up the gauntlet? Let’s figure out what’s up with that brother and distribution. Stop putting the money on the back in and get in on the front. Flip the script: What would happen if our brothers and sisters had a pot of $90 million dollars to make and distribute movies? Right now only about 10% is having that conversation in terms of ownership.
To be continued . . . stay tuned.

I have finally read an article on Soulja Boy’s eviction notice from his landlord. This is typical and of course the media blows the situation out of proportion. Come on yall, $9,376.10 was probably 2 months of rent and I guarantee someone forgot to pay. The landlord used this opportunity to bring the issue to light so the media could get wind of it. The issue being Soulja Boy having to many parties at his house. Of course they say he is broke and Soulja Boy goes and flex all his money.
Soulja Boy if you need a PR, i got you son!
The landlord of Soulja Boy Tell Em’s Los Angeles apartment has had it with the rapper.
TMZ.com got hold of a letter addressed to the artist late last month which states, “We have received complaints of noise disturbances and guests wandering the hallway and Observation Deck. This is a direct violation of your Lease Agreement.”
The letter continues, “Additionally, we were notified that you had over 10 cars parked in guest parking on the evening of September 25th. This is a violation of your lease … which states, ‘You may have no more than two overnight guests at a time unless we provide specific approval.’”
Within days of sending the letter, the landlord followed it up with a bill for $9,376.10 in unpaid rent and late fees.
The landlord situation follows reports last week of Soulja Boy’s arrest in an abandoned house in Georgia.
A glum Lil Wayne said little as he admitted illegally having a loaded gun on his tour bus in 2007, moving to end a case that had churned along as he collected and gold records. He’s expected to get a year in jail at his sentencing, set for February.
The plea, which came as he boasted the country’s No. 1 pop song, makes Lil Wayne the latest in a long line of rappers to face incarceration after topping the charts.
Arguably rap’s most popular artist,answered his judge’s questions with “yes, sir” and “no, sir” as he pleaded guilty to a of attempted criminal possession of a weapon.
He acknowledged he had a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun when the bus was stopped shortly after a Manhattan concert on July 22, 2007. His lawyer had previously disputed the gun was the rapper’s, in part by questioning the reliability of a highly sensitive DNA test that prosecutors said tied him to the weapon.
State Supreme Court Justice Charles Solomon warned Lil Wayne that he wouldn’t be able later to withdraw the plea, as some people try to do.
“I’m not one of those people,” said the rapper, who sat in court in jeans and a hooded parka. He pulled up the hood and didn’t speak as he left the courthouse with members of his entourage, who piled into four black SUVs. He’s due back in court Dec. 15 before his sentencing date, which has yet to be set.
He had faced at least 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted of the original weapons-possession charges against him.
Lil Wayne, 27, also is scheduled for trial in Arizona in March on felony and weapons charges stemming from a January 2008 arrest at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint. He has pleaded not guilty in that case.

Well, well 50 Cent is at it again. 50 Cent has place a banner on his website of Fat Joe ridiculing the amount of albums he has sold. SMH. Fat Joe only sold 8,000+ copies of his newly released album, J.O.S.E. 2 the first week. 50 Cent says plain and simple “Fat Joe you suck”.
I am devastated by the loss of AJ. His death comes on the heels of the death of my beloved Uncle Ralph and with both of them gone, my heart is heavy with grief. I had spoken to AJ two hours before I got the call that he was in the hospital. Never in a thousand years did I think it was going to be the last time I heard his voice. He was taken way too soon. There are so many things that I should have said to him, wanted to say to him.
But now it’s too late.
I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of my family and friends — and that means my twitter and facebook friends as well — for the beautiful words of encouragement, prayers, and the sweet condolences. I make it through these difficult days because of you. I know this is cliché’ but I urge everyone to treat each day as if it’s your last and tell that special someone you love them today. Don’t wait. It may be too late.
Please pray for his children, his family and Riley – they too are grieving the loss of an incredible man, son, brother and father. I wish you all had gotten to know the AJ we all knew and loved.

What I got from the interview was confusion, diva and somebody isn’t ready or wanting to have kids. I am sure there are enough nephews and lil’ cousins around to keep the Carters occupied. Is that what Bey was trying to imply on one answer?
From the maker of Concrete Loop. Too Funny:
Gumbo Heffa told a Polish magazine (!!?!?) about her marriage to Joe Camel and the interviewer asks if they’re thinkin’ about having kids and this was her response:
“Q: Since we’re on the subject of children, your husband Jay-z said recently: “Most of the people dream of having children, I am no exception.” Are you both plan, to start a family soon?
Beyaki: Someday, when the time is right but not in the near future.
Q: Jay-z is probably the most important men in your life. What are you doing together in your spare time?
Beyaki: (laugh) I dont know if he is.
Q: But I thought…
Beyaki: ([rudely] interrupts) Well, I love my nephew to death and he’s my everything.
Q: Are you and Jay live together?
Beyaki: Sometimes. (laugh)”
and Mama Tina immediately went to the voodoo chamber:
hee hee hee, I’ll make sure that reporter WON’T interview her ever again….”
