Well, at least it's better than Fantasia's cover.

Am I trippin'?



''I would love to sing with her, but unfortunately all eyes are on me.'"
Katharine McPhee on WHITNEY HOUSTON


Does she know what she just said? Who did she think she was talking about? Young B? Hannah Montana? YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT WHITNEY HOUSTON. LOL YOU DIDN'T EVEN WIN AMERICAN IDOL! For real, I had to read this quote about 100 times to make sure I read it correctly because I couldn't believe it. This is just as bad as when Bow Wow went up to Ronald Isley and asked ""My album went gold in it's first week. How many gold albums do you got?"

Chart check!


John Legend debuts at #2 this week with 229,559 copies sold and even though I have no idea HOW (WHERE were his singles/videos in the radio/TV?!) I congratulate him. I find him boring but apparently he is shaping up to be one of those artists who can drop anytime and sell well.

The rest of this week's chart was a pretty abysmal showing for hip hop and R&B debuts, with Jibbs at #10, Shareefa at #20 and Lil' Boosie at #25.

In worse news, though, Brooke Hogan debuted at #28. Ouch! Not a good way to kickoff to Scott Storch's new label.

"Wait A Minute" video - Pussycat Dolls featuring Timbaland



This is the 83rd single off their album. I guess Nicole is releasing her solo album soon (with that shitty single "Steam"). Will she be able to do it without her background dancers bandmates? Probably.

Oh, and Timbaland's only been "back" for like a year and I'm already sick of him again.

YOUR GHETTO STOCK MARKET REPORT


LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! LIVE FROM THE COMPTON SWAP MEET
SPONSORED BY SWISHER SWEETS!
IT'S THE GHETTO! STOCK! MARKET! REPORT!
WITH YOUR HOST: THE DOUGHBOOYY!

What's good HotMessians? It's ya Doughboy with the creamy center serving up your weekly Ghetto Stock Market, delivering you the latest on who's dat crack and who's wack.

On her way up from that huge loss she took at the end of Flavor of Love 2 is that greasy New York. Her stock rose this week with the announcement of her show I Love New York will make it's Celebreality Debut on January 16th. Expect to see a group of down low divas scrapping to get that number one spot. I'm sure I Love New York Too will be in development soon after the first show's winner is exposed on a gay porno like ya boy Lloyd Banks.

Increasing his weekly stock is none other than the Jigga man Jay-Z. After kissing that Manhattan asphault when he landed from his world tour, Jay took time out to hit up Hot 97 with an interview and a freestyle. The Dirty Pirate, Jim Jones had been talking greasy about Jigga with his duo of disses "Ring The Alarm" and "Kingdom Done". Jigga splashed a little ether on Jim Jones tongue by saying: "Who is Jim Jones to be sayin something about me?", "That's like the 9th guy off the bench shoutin "you a bum" to the superstar puttin up 50.", "Does he have a classic album?, NO! Is he on anyones top 10 lists? NO!" D-D-D-D-D-D-D-DAYUM! You can hear ether in it's entirety along with a hot jigga freestyle to that "Grammy Family" beat down below. Oddly enough, by way of the Jay-Z ether, Jim Jones' stock moves up as well because once your name comes from Jigga's lips it's another 100,000 sold. Ethered or not, Dirty Jimmy is still BALLLLLLIN!

(props to Dat BK Nikka)
Jay-Z Hot 97 Freestyle
Part One of Jay-Z Interview
Part Two of Jay-Z Interview

Our last big gainer of the day is none other than Curtis "Interscope" Jackson aka Fiddy Cent. He gets the biggest gain of the week due to the fact that he dissed Murder INC so bad that they went from the top of the charts to a VH-1 Celebreality special. The Hamburglar himself, Irv Gotti will star in Irv Gotti Himself, a show documenting his life after beating that money laundering rap in court. You'll also see the softer side of Irv as you'll see him play with his seeds and kick it in the cut. Yes, this is what the Inc is reduced to. From running the Carters to The House of Carters. Fifty stay winning. Insider traders state that Fifty will be on his way up soon once Irv gets desperate and try to pair Inc label mates Ja Rule and Michelle Branch on a duet.

And now for what you've come here for. THE LOSSES
Starring on this week's Biggest Loser block is resident loser The Game! The Game said on BET's 106th and Park that he keeps the master of The Doctor's Advocate with him at all times just so he'll be sure it won't leak. The bootlegging community took that as a challenge and sure enough, Sunday night, the Advocate found it's way on the net. Over the weekend track after track after track leaked with stans getting their panties in a bunch over the new piff. After awhile, your internet hustlegods hooked up that retail and the world rejoiced. Sure the album is hot and will be a west coast classic for years to come, but JT, you never eva, NEVA EVA challenge a bootlegger. Niggas had bootlegs of the 9/11 Commission and Harry Potter before they dropped, you know we're getting a hold of yours. Believe that! This just in...Jay-Z is headed for loss this Saturday because my source tells me Kingdom Come will be leaking very soon. Stay tuned to the ghetto for that.

Also kicking it on the loser's bench is the Mobb Deep. With Prodigy looking for love online and Havok getting arrested on weapons charges, you'd think God would ease up on them niggas. WRONG! In the latest XXL, the Deep reveal that they could've been Shanksvilled en route to a gig in Peru when an engine failed and they had to make an emergency landing in Tampa. When Prodigy was asked what was going through his mind, all he cared about was the fact that he was going to miss out on making alot of money! Nigga, you're about to miss out on your LIFE! Money ain't a thang if you ain't there to enjoy it. LOSST LIKE THE SERIES!

Finally, the most suspect loss of the week goes out to Johnny Gill. After years on the road, and millions of albums sold, he waits until NOW to have his first child? And apparently the child is now five months old? Yeah right nigga. We all know you and Eddie are swappin spit, you don't gotta lie or buy a baby on eBay to kick it. Your penis and a vagina are like oil and water, keep it real ol boy. Buying babies from Jamaican immigrants is not a good look.
That's all! Your ghetto stock report signing off. C'YEAH!

Tyra Banks and Chingy? What the hell?



I found this over at C&D and I had to do a double take. Fresh is right, this random hook-ups are getting crazy. I already bet money that if Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake break up he's going to get with Letoya Luckett.

Tyra Banks is wasting no tears over ex-boyfriend, Madea's Family Reunion producer and star Tyler Perry. In fact, a source tells Star that the supermodel/mogul has been busy playing footsie with rapper Chingy! The pair first met on an episode of Tyra Banks' talk show last year when Chingy revealed to Tyra that he had a thing for fine women's feet. Tyra immediately tore off her shoes and plopped her tootsies right down on Chingy's lap -- embarrassing the poor rapper! (It seems that Tyra had neglected to have a recent pedicure.)

Hoping for a second chance with the handsome St. Louis native, Tyra recently invited Chingy back to her show to tape not one but two episodes for November sweeps -- and this time, Tyra made sure to have her toes done! "On the first episode, Tyra tried to kiss Chingy, and he seemed to be taken aback by her forwardness," an audience member tells Star, "But the next day, Tyra teased Chingy, saying, 'I have a fresh pedi!" Chingy immediately rubbed and kissed Tyra's bare feet and then said, "I know I was a little taken back the other day, but now I'm ready for a real kiss!' and the two locked lips! You could see the sparks fly!"( Star )


I'm sorry but...SHE WAS DATING TYLER PERRY? I had NO idea about that! Both of these hook-ups are random to me. Tyra is pulling a Brandy - She'll date anyone!

Bow Wow Fesses Up About Ex-Girlfriend Ciara On December LP



Well Bow Wow is saying that he's going to come out with a serious record ( lol ) and be "raw and uncut" on it. He is going to come clean about what really happened with him and Ciara as well.

In particular, the junior rhyme-spitter noted a track called "System," on which he admits to having difficulties getting past a relationship with a girl he once dated. Bow was careful never to reveal her name, but a sly smile crossed his face when Ciara was brought up as the likely subject.

"It's one of the most heartfelt records that I've ever done," Bow explained after appearing on "TRL" last week. "It's about a certain relationship I was in, but how I feel about it now. And this [song] is a letter to that person. I'm finally getting the opportunity to get that off my chest. I look at The Price of Fame as a diary. And I'm just welcoming everybody into what's been going on from a year and a half ago until now with me. That song is the one that really speaks, because it's about me getting someone out of my system to make me feel good, but it's hard to do that when you really like someone."


Vh1


Whatever, he probably cheated on her with one of the girls from Cherish or that girl that Teddy Riley married on myspace.

"Tell Me" video - Diddy featuring Christina Aguilera / "All Good Things" video - Nelly Furtado

Monday, October 30, 2006


I'm mad they keep giving Diddimyer these hot beats, because he is squandering them. He better thank the heavens he had enough famous friends to turn this album into a Quincy Jones-esque compilation because without Donatella Aguilera on this song it would have been a MESS. But y'all already knew that.



Erin - lmao is this real
Erin - she sounds like brooke hogan!!
J - LOL
Erin - damn
Erin - did timbaland fall asleep on this one?

I actually like the Loose album but this track is always one that gets skipped. I thought "Maneater" was supposed to be the next single? She needs to quit with this mellow Dido shit.

Teairra Mari dropped from Roc-a-fella?


I know, I know, a lot of you out there are like "Who?" Teairra Mari came out in 2005 with the song "Make Her Feel Good" and the self-titled album came out the same year. It was a little messy but overall it was cute and I thought she had potential for growth. Apparently Jay-Z disagrees.

Teairra has been removed from the Roc-a-fella roster, and her official Myspace lists her label type as "indie". Hmmm...

One of her blogs also mentions that she's been dissed in the past by Roc-a-fella, since only "big" artists are allowed to put up new music on their Myspaces which she was barred from doing. Awwww. I just wanna comfort her cute lil' ass.

The thing I'm most mad about is of all these Def Jam-affiliated R&B chicks (including T, Christina Milian and Megan Rochell), Rihanna is the one who is getting the most attention, and she is the least talented. Ugh.

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe Split.



The couple that has been married for 7 years has announced their seperation.

We are saddened to announce that Reese & Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time."


Well I saw this one coming a mile away. I mean with him not being B- list and her being A-list, and her having that Oscar just fall in her lap, I guess she figured he was dead weight. People are saying that he felt threatened by her career and that it was just a series of things. I personally think that she saw that magazine spread he did recently and pulled a Nicole Murphy. Ryan was looking like a cupcake in that spread. This is really sad because they were together for so long.

Get Rich and Die Sewing

ULI...MUST...USE...WILD...PRINT...AGGGHH!!!
*rips fetus from Laura's belly*

Bravotv.com's "The Dish" reported the final results of the Project Runway Auction and all four finalists came away with a big payday. Laura's very coveted Green Beaded Gown went for an astounding $4500.00 with three other dresses going over the $1,000 mark. Project Runway 3 champ Jeffrey came away with beautiful Grey and Black striped gown going for $2900.00. Despite being the winner of the show, Jeffrey's collection sold third best out of the crew. Taking the number two spot with her groovy duds is Uli. Her sultry silver gown went for a total of $3,425.oo, with three other gowns selling over $1,000. Even though Michael's collection was less favored with only one dress selling over $1,000 out of his final collection and one of his pieces dipping below $200.00. Despite that fact, his high selling gown is going straight into the closet of Jennifer Lopez herself which very well could be the biggest reward of him all, celebrity co-signage.

The end of Project Runway's third season doesn't put a damper on Bravo's schedule at all. A new season of Top Chef is well underway with America's hottest chefs cooking up very beautiful dishes. According to TV Squad, Todd Oldham is attached to host Top Design, their interior design show monster that should be another success for Bravo. Hair divas need not feel left out, Bravo is also working on producing a mane event for the hair industry tenatively called Top Hair. Bravo has the idea of producing eight, one hour episodes in which the winner will recieve $100,000 to kickstart their hair design career. No host has been attached as of yet.

Tyrese - One


This one is really going to have to grow on me. It's no "Lately" but I guess it will do for right now. Tyrese is coming out with a double CD called "Alter Ego" and introduces his rapper ego "Black Ty". One disc will be full of R&B tracks and the other disc will be hip-hop. Don't really know how I feel about this and I'm not going to say anything bad about him rapping yet because I haven't heard any of those tracks. Tyrese use to be a rapper in the group Triple Impact, so maybe he can bring it? We will have to see. Production is going to be done by Scott Storch, Manni Fresh, All Star, and members from Frontline Boyz. Rappers featured on the album will be The Game, Snoop Dogg, Too Short, Kurupt, Method Man, David Banner, Lil Scarppy, and Manni Fresh.

Flavor of Love Reunion outtakes



New York and, well, everyone getting into it. This is UNREAL. Girls were running and shit. Word is Bootz got popped in the face by New York backstage, but then some other people are saying Bootz is the one who did the hitting. In any case, I know one thing - I wish I was in that audience!

Amerie talks greazy on Beyoncé!


So, since my last post about her, Amerie put out her mess of a mixtape where she mumbled some random phrases about her "struggle" and "haters" (sounds like the comments section on this blog) over some current hip hop beats. The highlight that has music fans buzzing, though, is her alleged diss toward Beyoncé, which I will admit that I picked up on right away. She's implying that Beyoncé took some of her vocal stylings and song types (i.e., working with Rich Harrison) and ran with them, especially for the B'Day album. To be fair, though, Amerie's work with Rich was NOTHING like it is now until after Beyoncé put out "Crazy In Love".

Here are some lyrics to "Because I Love It":

Six months, and y'all done checked my style
Thinkin I was M.I.A., that's wishful thinkin', child
It's obvious to see,
Chickens try to bite it,
But they can't cop my delivery.
My style, my aggression on the track,
When y'all chicks know yall wasn't singing like that, yeah!
...
Go and chase that track.
Pay a hundred stack,
But you can't buy my sound,
Can't take my flow,
Can't bag my swag,
No, *Nooo-ooo-ooo*


*sung like Beyoncé's "Green Light"*

Listen to Amerie getting brolic here.

Diano Ross doin the damn thing.





I don't know where Diano is going but by the look on her face you can tell that she doesn't give a damn what people think about her. I guess she's smiling like that in the second picture because she's plotting her revenge on Beyonce. Those boots have to go though! I didn't know people were still where still wearing those.

New Fantasia Cover?

This has been floating around the net, and I don't know if it's true or not, but you be the judge...



I don't know how I feel about this -- it's like Grace Jones-ish. The "feel" of it doesn't jibe with the music she sings, ya know? Maybe if it was a disco-themed gay-club record, then sure!

But for soul R&B, with a dumped-single called "Hood Boy" (Sidenote: we know you changed it up Fannie when people was like, "WTF kinda song is this!?" We love you though), this record cover just doesn't get me happy in the pants ya know?

Fannie, BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD.

However, it's GOT to be better than Ruben's album, talking about he sexy and ish. Ruben, BOY STOP.

'Simple Life' on hold while Nicole Richie seeks help with weight gain



Nicole Richie is taking a break from The Simple Life to seek help in her own life.

The 25-year-old reality TV star is in an undisclosed private facility, her publicist exclusively tells E! News, "to undergo diagnostic treatment to determine why she's not been putting on any weight."

"She is working with a team of doctors and specialists whose focus is nutrition," says the rep. "It is important to Nicole that she achieve this goal in a healthy way, [but] this is not a treatment for an eating disorder."

Richie's treatment means work on the new season of The Simple Life, which will find Richie and recently reconciled pal Paris Hilton as camp counselors, is temporarily on hold.

In a joint statement, show producers 20th Century Fox and Bunim/Murray said, "Everyone...supports Nicole and wishes her well. We consider her a part of our family and look forward to resuming production on The Simple Life when she is ready."

(E!)


It's not for an eating disorder, y'all! I mean, what is it for then? Rehab on how to lift food and put it to your mouth? Knowing where to go to find food? In all seriousness, though, I'm happy she is seeking SOME sort of help because she is about one pound away from disintegrating. Get better soon, Nicole.

"Promise" video - Ciara

Wednesday, October 25, 2006


This is sexy! Ciara is giving me what I need on this one. Since everyone has been telling us we are "haters" you will all be happy to hear I am feelin' her hardcore. ESPECIALLY after some of these dance moves. Damn.

"The Evolution" is in stores December 5th.

Jay-Z on the December cover of XXL


I guess he is gonna address his "beef" with Cam'ron or whatever, as well as the new album. This gets a big *YAWN* from me but I know there are people out there checking for Fraggle Rock (shoutout to MiamiGreg). For someone who had such great potential he really is throwing it away. Oh, and XXL fell off so hard! They don't even try to be innovative anymore. There was a time when I used to think it was much better than The Source but now all the hip hop magazines are rags. I'm sticking with AllHipHop.

JERMAINE! YOU AIN'T GOT NO JOB!!!!

JD: "Money ain't a thang? Right?"
Janet: "Pussy ain't a thang, either. *snap*"


The world was good for one Jermaine Dupri In April. He was relaxing, enjoying the success from Mariah Carey's Emancipation, Dem Franchise Boys snap dancing across america and the fact that he gets to lay in Janet Jackson's arms like a toddler in heat. Fast forward to today and it seems our favorite monchichi is on the brink of taking an insurmountable amount of losses. After the bleak sales of Janet Jackson's 20 Years Old (Not 20 Y.O. illiterate journalists), turning Monica into Dem Franchise Girl and generally sucking the life out of Virgin's Urban Music development, Jermaine announced that he would be stepping down from the position. Instantly rumors were started by intelligent people who can add 1+1 (it's two Deelicious) that Dupri was forced out of his position due to his lack of performance and the fact that he thought it was a good idea to have Janet do a song with this lovely lady.

JD decided to release a statement to stop the talk of more losses. "Since there are so many rumors running rampant about my position at Virgin Records, I feel that it is necessary to set the record straight," Dupri said Wednesday in a statement released to the AP. "I was not forced out of the company, I made a decision that it was in my best interest to leave." Which leads everyone to believe it was one of those "You can't fire me, I quit!" fits employees pull when they get in trouble at Wal-Mart.

One thing you can count on is the enduring, everlasting love that Janet Jackson will have for JD. With that said, I give them another six weeks before they break up. I've got five on it, any takers?

Dominique: Fighting (Talent) Barriers

Who is Dominique? Damned if i know. But her PR people are on their grind trying to get this Ceely/Countess Vaughn clone some face time. Normally in interviews, the artist would do us the favor by revealing a bit of theirself or their future plans. But this isn't your normal interview. When you read this, imagine you're walking down your block and you see Ceely here and some random dusty Ride or Die fool having a conversation on a street.

Wassup Dominique. How are you doing?

Dominique: Hey - I'm doing well.

Have you been having a busy schedule lately? (Your English Teacher Lost)

Dominique: Yea. I've been focused on the inside things like going to the studio and personal training; just getting my whole situation together. (like getting off of my baby daddy's couch).

Do you plan to keep incorporating a lot of dance into your routines?

Dominique: No I don't. Actually, you never know what happens when you go to a label, but I would prefer it if I didn't have to dance at all just because I want my audience to be focused on my vocal performance. Not my appearance or dancing ability. (She doesn't want to get winded on stage. You don't see Angie Stone booty clappin' do you?)

What's going on with you in regards to your career?

Dominique: I'm in the studio right now trying to get my own project together to present to labels. I'm focused right now on making sure that what I have to present is quality work.

When did you start singing?

Dominique: I started singing when I was 2. I never pursued a career until Making the Band. My whole life has been dedicated to my education and making it to college. Once I was there my mom made me audition for the show and I made it, and that was it. Once the show was over that's when I decided to pursue my career.

You heard about Making the Band through your mom?

Dominique: Yea (laughter). (Mom was trying to get that money.)

When you went to audition did you think that you would win?

Dominique: I took it one day at a time to be honest with you. In the beginning I was only doing it because my mom asked me to. I had confidence in myself, but I was not expecting to make it past the first stages because over 10,000 girls auditioned. So out of 10,000 you don't necessarily feel like your going to be one of the 20 girls that end up in the House.

What city did you audition?

Dominique: D.C.

Are you a D.C. native?

Dominique: No. I'm a Bronx native.

You're a Bronx native but you auditioned in D.C.?

Dominique: I live in D.C. now but I was born and raised in the Bronx.

(this interviewer needs to get his/her head wrapped around the definition of "native")

Is the industry what you dreamed it would be?

Dominique: No. I don't know if I ever dreamed about what the industry would be like. I never really had anything coming into it that I assumed. I never had any presumptions or anything like that about the industry. It's smaller than I expected and a lot harder to break into.

What was it like working with Diddy and Bad Boy in the studio?

Dominique: The studio was actually my best experience. I had a lot of fun with the producers and the artists he put us in with. That was probably one of the best experiences of the show, being in the studio.

What's the name of your project?

Dominique: I haven't got a name for it yet.

Do you have creative control over your project or are there people from Bad Boy who handle the direction you're going in?

Dominique: Oh no. My affiliation with Bad Boy is really done. After the show they offered me a demo deal and I didn't accept it. After that I decided it didn't make sense. If I wasn't going to take the deal then it didn't make sense to be there. (She narrowly escaped the basement that Dannity Kane, Young Joc, Chopper, The Lox, Loon, Black Rob and all of the other Bad Boy Detainees are chained. Good job Seely.)

Are the songs that you are writing for your album from personal experiences? Are you doing a lot of the songwriting?

Dominique: I am doing a lot of writing. I'm working with some great writers as well. It's definitely a collaborative effort but a lot of it is just my own experiences. I've been through a lot in life but I haven't necessarily been through a lot of bad things. So I think it's going to be a new sound because a lot of people have a lot of heartache to talk about. I don't necessarily feel like I encompass a whole bunch of that. (Wow i didn't know the concept of heartache was new? I guess Keith Sweat was just faking it, right?)

During the show Diddy used to raise questions about your figure. Did that ever discourage you in any way?

Dominique: In the beginning it did because…to be honest with you for my whole life I looked like the rest of the world. But I guess in terms of the industry I have a few more pounds than everybody else. To me it took getting used to because in regular society I'm considered to be regular. I have a few friends that are thick and they call me skinny all day. So it was weird in the beginning to have him say that but I had to really get used to the fact that people in the industry are like 10 times skinnier than the rest of the world. Once I got used to it I tried to slim down but I don't want to be a size zero - you know what I'm saying? It's not where I want to be. If that's going to affect me…then I got to figure that out later. (We'll see you on Psuedo-Celebrity Fit Club on BET, right after BEEF the Series)

Where do you think you're going be in three years? (In a porno)

Dominique: Hopefully, I will have a phenomenal record deal at a label where I'm happy with - at least one album out by then and a huge fan base. Also, in 3 years I really want to be deep into charity, community service and fund-raising. So, if I can get my money up then I can start giving back, and that's really what my goal is. (Lets get real. The only community service she will be handling is keeping Flava Flav's dick occupied long enough to keep him from getting another ho pregnant. Get a grip mothasucka!)

It was nice talking to you. Do you have a date when the album will be out?

Dominique: It's still undecided. I don't even want to make up a date for you. But it was definitely good talking to you. (She hasn't walked into a studio since Making The Band 3)

My advice for anyone else who wants an interview posted, BE ABOUT SH*T! Don't give some vague answers like you're a ten year old on Star Search! Talk about your hustle, come with a demo and keep it moving.

Edit: What's the odds on the probability she's going to release a snap record? I say 5 to 1.

Cory Kennedy dating Vincent Gallo?

Over at PageSix, the shithead that is Vincent Gallo has been quoted saying that he is dating 16 year old Cory Kennedy. Cory Kennedy is an up and coming fashion icon thanks to the hipster site The Cobra Snake.Vincent said to PageSix,
"With the psychotic, middle-aged Madonna out there on the loose buying up all the stolen Negro babies in Africa, I felt it my social and humanitarian duty to take in any young, beautiful and sexy orphaned Jew teens running wild in Beverly Hills. Cory's a great kid, and I'm proud to be her daddy."

This just kills me because when Joss Stone was dating Beau Dozier ( He was 25, she was 17 ) people were shitty bricks and she got kicked from Gap ads and everything but 16 year old Cory can date 45 year old Vincent. That dude is a fucking tool anyway. I was too through with him when he was on eBay trying to sell his sperm for One Million Dollars and I don't mean Monopoly dollars either! and specifically said "No blacks or red heads."

Diddy Runs The Soundscan Report

Burger King: "I Run This NY Sh*t."

Diddy knows what it is. In the era of the "hip hop flop" you have to pull out all of the stops. By appearing everywhere from YouTube to Myspace to jumping from behind the dumpster near Starbucks on Broadway shouting "PRESS PLAY!" to little Armenian ladies. This week his omnipresent PR campaign paid off as he landed the number one spot on the billboard charts this week with 176,332. As everyone knows with Hip Hop albums though, the real test comes next week when almost every hip hop album posted a decrease of 30% or more after high first week sales. Diddy should hold off on celebrating for a hot minute. Fellow producer Pharrell kicked off his first week sales with 142, 000 and has yet to go gold. I'm personally holding out for Diddy to pay me to be in my top 8. $5,000 a day Didds, holla atcha boi. Goths with seizures, Evanescence followed Diddy at number 2 with 107,000 sold.

Jojo took time out from her Teena Marie Debutante classes to sell 105,770 and capture the number 3 spot. Justin Timberlake is still hanging in with another 95,697 who will never know the joy of "Atlantic Records for T.I. clearance". 81,298 were disappointed when they found out the hard way that Dirks Bentley isn't a new Cee Lo Greene project but a boot-in-a-terrorist's ass country western singer. RUUUUBENNN STUDDARD is still getting his ass kicked by Clay Aiken in sales as he enter's this week's top 200 with 69,769. Rube, you need to start being sexually ambiguous dog, i'm just saying, relax the wrist. Rod Stewart, Tony Bennett, The Killers and Hinder also made top ten appearences this week.

The more noteable story comes from Lloyd Banks. The G-Unit stiff's album Rotten Apple was ripe last week landing him in the number three spot. This week the flop squad was waiting to see how much of a drop the Banks was going to suffer. After sporting a 68% drop in sales posting 48,534 everyone is getting their flopped stamps out. G-Unit stans are furious over the comedy of errors that was Rotten Apple's promotional budget. After the numbers came out, it looked like the most famous member of the flop squad, the Ga(y)me had his Mr. Microphone ready and recorded a fresh diss for that ass to hear.

The Game - "Soundscan" (zshare link, more like Soundstan, amirite?)

Apparently the Game's infatuation with G-Unit continues all the way to his obsession with sales numbers. He does hit some punchlines hard by christening members of G-Unit with new monikers like Jay Leno, Tony Homo and Young F*ck. Isn't that special? He also bites off a little more he can chew by asking Young Buck a personal question: "Young Buck, when your album coming out/Nah for real Go ask 50 when your album coming out". Lloyd Banks has nothing to say to the opportunistic Game because he has a point. With lackluster promotion, production and hunger, this album shows Banks as a shell of the rapper he was. He needs to get hungry again and come out with a better effort than this.

Maybe you should try Mayberry



I'm sure everyone has heard about Shaquille O'Neal's moonlighting gig as a deputy while he's not on the court in Miami. Well, if you didn't think it sounded like a bad idea when you first heard it, here's some more evidence for you.

In a botched child pornography raid in Bedford County, VA, Shaq and his cohorts with the Blue Ridge Thunder Unit reportedly kicked down the door of the wrong house and held the family inside at gunpoint and "taunted" them while they confiscated their computers.

Though it was later discovered the IP address used was incorrect, Shaq denied that he had been involved, saying simply "it wasn't me" even after the sheriff's office confirmed the story. Sure, it was that other 7'1" 325 lb. black dude.

Throwback of the Day: "Kissing You" by Total (1996)


LMAO @ Kima playing that guitar. I'm surprised Raphael Saadiq didn't put on a dress and get all up in the video since he produced it. He would have looked more feminine than Pam, anyway. This video doesn't make no type of sense! But that's Bad Boy videos from this era for you... who remembers Faith's clip for "You Used To Love Me" with some chick calling up Biggie and about to jump out a window over a cat or something?

John Legend and Janice Combs attends the opening of The Ralph Lauren Men's Shop at Saks Fifth Avenue

I just about fell out when I saw this. This is just so bizarre! What is she doing there? She looks like she caught this wig at a Mardi Gras parade ( Moonpie! ). If she has any sense of fashion then damn, she sure as hell knows how to keep it a secret. I'm mad at Diddy for letting her just walk around like this. This is almost as bad as when Jay-Z admitted to selling drugs to his mother.

New music from Amerie


Amerie's third album Because I Love It (?! yeah, I dunno either) is set to drop January 2007. A few tracks have leaked off this album, and what I like about Amerie is even though she doesn't have the best voice, she tries new stuff. That song "Some Like It" (Edit: snippet here) that leaked a few months ago straight up sounds like a Maybelline commercial - and I like it (no pun intended)! Anyway, this is the latest:

"That's What U Are" - Amerie


powered by ODEO

Edit: Odeo is acting up, so you can listen to the song here, as well.


I like this, but it could be better - also keep in mind it's an unfinished version. Some more info on the album: Amerie will be collaborating with Rich Harrison as usual, as well as Cee-Lo and The Buchanans, who produced some stuff for Jay-Z during the Black Album era.

Baby Flav is on the way!!


Lord! Just found out that Flavor Flav has "a shorty in Lag Vages" pregnant with his child. I'm amazed. He confirmed this on The Tom Joyner Morning Show recently and yes, he is still "with" London Charles. Flav has a new CD coming out next week also.

Is Cheri Dennis a lesbian? Probably.



Well the people over at Vibe Confidential are saying that a reliable female source tells them that Cheri tried to pick her up at two music industry events. I can see this being true because since she's gay Diddy can't fuck her and this is why most of you have never heard of her. Apparently she goes to a lot of gay clubs and lives the life openly. I can't hate on that! At least she's sort out there with it, unlike Usher, Missy, Mario, etc.

Snoop Dogg ready to throw down in the airport



Prosecutors are considering charges against Snoop Dogg after authorities discovered a 21-inch collapsible baton in his bags as he boarded a New York-bound flight, authorities said Monday.

The rapper, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, had the baton in his laptop case as he went through a security checkpoint at John Wayne International Airport on Sept. 27, sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino said.

Snoop Dogg, 35, told sheriff’s deputies that the baton was a prop for a movie he was filming in New York, Amormino said.

“He had a collapsible baton and it is classified as a dangerous weapon,” Amormino said, adding that the stick collapsed to eight inches.

District attorney spokeswoman Susan Kang Schroeder said her office received the sheriff’s report on Monday. She said prosecutors had not yet decided whether to charge Snoop Dogg, who was not arrested.

It wasn’t the first time the rapper has had a problem at an airport.

In May, he accepted responsibility for using “threatening words or behavior” in an April brawl at Heathrow Airport in London. Snoop Dogg and five other men were arrested on charges of violent disorder and starting a brawl after some members of the rapper’s party were denied entry to British Airways’ first-class lounge.

Seven officers received minor injuries — mainly cuts and bruises — and one suffered a fracture to the hand.

British Airways has banned Snoop Dogg from future travel on the airline, it said last month.

Snoop Dogg was convicted in 1990 of cocaine possession and was charged with gun possession after a 1993 traffic stop. Facing a possible three years in prison, he pleaded guilty in exchange for three years’ probation and his promise to make anti-violence public service announcements.

He also was acquitted of murder in 1996 following the death of an alleged street gang member killed by gunfire from the vehicle Snoop Dogg was traveling in.

Well, I'm sure this is just another case of "pre-album release promo", and at least he had the sense not to shoot himself like Fabolous did. But the thing I really love about these stories is how they have to bring up all this old shit. "Snoop Dogg was arrested in 1988 for public urination. Oh, and one time he almost hit a cat in the road in 1984."

JoJo at Hyde Nightclub

Monday, October 23, 2006




It kills me that Bobby Brown and Chyna had to wait in lines to get into this club ( I don't even know if they got in?! ) and someone that was born in 1990 can just walk in and have her picture taken. That's rough!

and how come no onee told me her and Freddy Adu broke up?

Kevin Federline lands movie role.


KEVIN FEDERLINE will make his Hollywood debut in an upcoming hip-hop movie directed by rapper STICKY FINGAZ. Federline, the husband of pop superstar BRITNEY SPEARS, will star in musical CAUGHT ON TAPE. Fingaz, who stars in the TV series spin-off of the BLADE franchise, says, "This is a hardcore musical - lots of violence, sex, action, drama, plus sentiment and romance as well. "It's Kev Fed's (movie) acting debut. He's really cool."

( Contact Music )

This is killing me! I feel so sorry for Kevin Federline because I really think he's getting punk'd by Ashton Kutcher. I fell out when he got that role on...what was it? Law & Order? CSI?

File this under 'things J never wants to see'


The world knows him as boy wizard Harry Potter. Now, Daniel Radcliffe wants the world to see him differently.

Next summer, the 17-year-old will take to a London stage in the Tony Award-winning drama “Equus” and will perform nude during one scene, according Newsweek magazine in editions that will hit newsstands Monday.

“Part of me wants to shake up people’s perception of me, just shove me in a blender,” he told the magazine in an exclusive interview on the set of the fifth Harry Potter film, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.”

(MSNBC)

Ugh! Now that is just foul. Can't we get Christina Milian to do a role like this? I know she needs the money. I'll even take the girl in the Harry Potter movies. Wait, she's legal, right?



The year wouldn't be complete if Paris Hilton didn't have something hacked. The heiress' Myspace friends are getting hit with a scam intended to put them on spam lists. The message from Hilton that is sent to her fans lures them in with the opportunity to meet her, but after filling out pages upon pages of information, all these losers get is a mailbox full of "MAKE YOUR P33N BIGGER!!" Sucks to be you if you filled this out. In more ways than one.

And in "sit down, your 15 minutes were over 10 years ago" news, former members of BLACKstreet, AZ Yet and Silk have formed a supergroup of mediocrity entitled The Blays. If the name isn't enough to have you on the floor, check out their Myspace for more LOL.
Edit: Wow, Marc Dorsey, one of the members, actually had a song called "15 Minutes". This is just too easy.

"Fergalicious" video - Fergie featuring will.i.am



I have a soft spot for Fergie, she seems like she is down-to-earth and fun to hang out with. I like the Candyland theme and Fatima's choreography is crunk. Oh, and the "Give It All You Got" sample is taking me back! will.i.am doesn't touch Da Backwudz on the Willy Wonka tip, though.

Wendy "Noxeema Jackson" Williams and Kym Whitley at an Alize promotion for The Wendy Williams Experience, which airs Fridays at 11:30 pm on VH1. Everyone watch, Wendy is hilarity!





Keyshia Cole showed up to perform and spend some time with her formerly incarcerated mama, Franky Lons.





"My forehead is bigger than that." Rihanna promotes a new perfume from Clinique, happy.







What in the hell is Wilmer Valderrama, seen here making an appearance on MTV Tres, wearing?



Here begins the section of this post I call "Famous White Chicks Dyking." New BFFs Fergie and Ashlee Simpson look like Michael Jackson and his oft-veiled daughter, respectively, going to grab a bite at Mr. Chow's.



Rumer Willis really needs to start doing something other than being Bruce and Demi's daughter, because I'm getting sick of seeing her. I guess she's starting by indulging in a kiss with Lindsay Lohan. Whatever.


Throwback of the Day: "Candy Rain" by Soul IV Real (1995)



What was the production budget for this video? $100? I like the glittery streamers from Party City hanging in the background while they break it down like a poor man's Jackson 5. This song (and a few other songs they put out) were hot but you could tell they were gonna be over as soon as the youngest one (and lead singer) went through puberty. Enjoy!
