A good friend just alerted me to some exciting news–Janet Jackson is performing @ Essence this year. This is her first time @ Essence too, so folks are hype-city. If you don’t love Ms. Jackson, that’s coo, but if you do, this is a pretty big deal. In addition to Janet Jackson, this year the festival is featuring Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Chrisette Michelle, De La Soul, Earth, Wind & Fire, Jill Scott, the list goes on and on. Visit Essence for ticket info. Shout out to Nikk’once for the info.
NeNe Leakes’ son is in some drama…again. He was was arrested on Tuesday in Lawrenceville, Georgia and released @ 3 a.m. this morning. Apparently, homeboy had an outstanding warrant. As you’ll recall, her son was recently in the news on a minor marijuana possession charge.
In other news, NeNe was in Dallas this past weekend & got up on that stripper pole again. Oh, don’t act like you don’t remember that episode.
Visit TMZ for more “pole” photos.
It’s the return of the subliminal celebrity tweets? This one comes from Bow Wow…He recently tweeted: My morning just started with a call from my “EX” . But atleast she kno how to still keep contact n be grown. Least she dont act like you 21 minutes ago via Echofon
Could this be a subliminal tweet to a public celebrity ex (like the Simmons doll or Ciara) or is this a random attention seeking tweet? I’m sure we will find out shortly. None of us really care yet, but its fun to speculate.
Global Grind has a short YouTube clip of your favorite rapper’s rapper, Jay-Z, being cool and nodding his head to his “Blow the Whistle” song in Tao. Coming straight from his BP3 tour…cigar in hand, champagne flute in the other, while fans snap pix. He’s too cool for school and I love him. “So tall and lanky/my suit? It should thank me.”
Kimora Lee Simmons is now “officially” on twitter…meaning I believe she actually tweets herself. She’s yet to be verified, but peep her recent tweets. They sound like KLS and all her fabulous glory.
Just so you know all my babies, if you down, you down, if not, that’s cool2! But I don’t like the LANGUAGE ppl! You WILL get the GAS FACE! 13 minutes ago via UberTwitter
@KentashaD ooh thanks girl! Ima big ole thang! But I’m not the poster child for the skinnies! So I can live with it! ?kls
She tickles me. My favorite KLS quote is still, “I wear fur and if somebody throws shit on me I’m gonna whup your ass! I wish somebody would throw shit on me.” It’s nothing deep about it, it’s just that I feel the same way. I’m no bill bad ass, but I’m certainly not above wreckin shop on protestors. The new season comes on Sunday’s @ 9/8c on Style.
I love Trina! My favorite rap song is “Baddest B^%[email protected]” (yeah, I said it. It’s an ignorant song and I love it. Sue me). My favorite song in the entire world is “Nasty Girl” by Vanity 6 (and yeah, I said that too). Be nice. Anywho, here’s the new Million Dollar Girl video.
Behind the Scenes:
In the mini-twitter battle Kim Kardashian vs. Demi Moore, the controversial blogger Perez Hilton-takes sides. And who’s side? He’s all team Kim Kardashian. For the back story on why & how Demi vs. Kim started, click here. Long story short, Kim jokingly used the phrase “big pimpin”, Demi wasn’t really feeling the use of the word and a back and forth tweet exchange ensued. The ladies calmly resolved, but good old Perez had some choice words for Demi.
