There is a quote by the lovely Carrie Bradshaw that goes, “I have a style and jeweled panties aren’t it.” Well damn it, I have a sense of style (in my mind) and Trina makes jeweled panties look freaking fabulous. I know many of you are gagging right now; sue me. I love Trina and those damn bedazzled underwear (I hate the word panties, but I’m branching out today).
My favorite song is “Nasty Girl” by Vanity 6 and my favorite female rap song is “Baddest Bitch,” by Trina. Posted below for your viewing pleasure. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBhXr1U-E78] (((I want to post my favorite line, but my mom might read this 0_0)))
Judge me. I care.
Shaunie O’Neal and her new, cute, younger boyfriend, Marlon Yates were spotted out and about at MTV Movie Awards’ gifting suite. Besides a silly rumor about marriage, that’s all I have for you, folks–a boring picture.
Update: Apparently, rumors were swirling, although I didn’t hear any, that Shaunie was engaged to her new bf, Marlon. See Shaunie’s sarcastic tweets below in response:
Trey Songz & Teyana Taylor @ Summer Jam
Ochocinco and some dude
Snoop questionably blowed
Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles, put rumors to rest today confirming that there will be no Destiny’s Child Reunion or album.“Contrary to rumors online of a Destiny’s Child reunion, there are no plans for the group to reunite for a performance or album,” Knowles stated in a press release issued. “The rumors are false. Destiny’s Child made an unprecedented impact in contemporary music, becoming one of the best-selling groups of all time. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have each moved on to successful solo careers. The members remain close, but will not reunite as a group.”?
Popular blogger, Miss Jia, responds to Slim Thug’s controversial Vibe article/blog…She went “in” on him via twitter and I loved every minute of it…My top 5 FAVORITE tweets in response to Slim are here:
@slimthugga if you find you some UPWARDLY MOBILE black women, you wouldn’t have to worry about YOUR stacks b/c they’d have their OWN $

Some folks are slightly pissed at the intellectual (sarcasm), Slim Thug, who recently made some interesting remarks on white women vs. black women. Peep a few excerpts via Vibe:
Both men and women need to change their way of thinking. It’s hard to trust a Black woman [sometimes] because a lot of Black women’s mind frame is that the man gotta do everything for her? he gotta pay for this, he gotta pay for that, and if it ain’t about money then a lot of them ain’t fucking with him. If that’s what you’re here for then I don’t want to be with you.
Most single Black women feel like they don’t want to settle for less. Their standards are too high right now. They have to understand that successful Black men are kind of extinct. We’re important. It’s hard to find us so Black women have to bow down and let it be known that they gotta start working hard; they gotta start cooking and being down for they man more. They can’t just be running around with their head up in the air and passing all of us.
I have a brother that dates a White woman and he always be fucking with me about it saying, “Y’all gotta go through all that shit [but] my White woman is fine. She don’t give me no problems, she do whatever I say and y’all gotta do all that arguing and fighting and worry about all this other shit.”
My girl is Black and White. I guess the half White in her is where she still cooks and do all the shit that I say, so we make it. She just takes care of me and I like that. She don’t be begging and I don’t gotta buy her all this crazy ass shit. And she’s a smart girl too. She graduated from Columbia [University] and I like that about her so it’s cool. I’ve dated girls that will buy a $3,000 bag and don’t know how to pay it off on their credit cards. They walk around in these Louis Vuittons and red bottoms but they’re riding around in raggedy cars, so it’s just getting your priorities right.
Black women need to be more genuine and be more 50/50 [but] It should be a fair exchange in a relationship period or eventually somebody is gonna feel like they’re getting fucked over whether it’s the woman or the man. I think that will help Black relationships out a lot.
(((I do agree w/ some of his comments…No judgement, but I could care less what a man in corn-rows and gold teeth has to say. And I love thugs; just the corporate, less obnoxious ones.)))

Janet Jackson has a new haircut and a new younger, richer boyfriend, Wissam Al Mana. Wissam, a 35-year-old millionaire businessman, has reportedly spoiled Janet w/ lavish gifts (not sure what lavish is in celebrity world). Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri recently ended their 7 year relationship, but are said to still be “close.” (((Being “close” to your ex only works in celeb world like Kimora and Russ.)))
