This may be a bad joke, but it’s BET’s Hip-Hop Awards, so it probably isn’t.

Antoine Dodson was spotted rehearsing for the awards show. I. Can. Not. Wait.

Ne-Yo Gives Hackers the ‘Middle Finger’…”Hackers, Die Slow.”

Written by thejasminebrand in Blog
Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

Ne-yo has a message for hackers, Fuck you very  much. Yes, on an early Saturday morning, we bring you the vulgarity.

Those weren’t his exact words, but he is pissed to the 10th power with how half his album has already leaked.

Friday morning he took to twitter to vent: “ALL HACKERS DIE SLOW!! It’s stealing plain and simple! There’s places where they cut people’s hands off for less! Y’all SUCK!!!!!To be clear, twitter hackers don’t effect me. I’m talking about hackers leaking more than half my damn album!! It’s STEALING. Damn shame…I work my ass off when it comes to my music! Blood, sweat and tears, I pride myself on it! Only for somebody to hack in and steal it!?!” (On the low, someone did email me like 4 songs off his album…cringe. Guess I won’t be posting ’em now!)

On a non-relevant note, I eff w/ Neyo, but that twit pic profile pic (above) is absolutely disrespectfully terrible.

Alicia Keys gave some very real advice about the tragic death of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers student who recently committed suicide after his roommate posted a video online of him and another man engaging in sexual activity.

At the annual Keep a Child Alive fundraiser, Keys told MTV News, “That’s really heavy and really, really sad. It’s really important to maintain and keep close to people that really love you. And if you ever feel taken advantage of or bullied, turn it off, and go towards God and people that love you. Make sure that you hold onto them. Anyone else, get them the fuck out of your sphere.”

Spotted. Stalked. Scene. Patricia Field, Paul Wharton, RHODC Cast

Two words. Patricia Field. While running with my girlfriend Brigette Namata, of DC’s Examiner, at the All Access Fashion VIP Show at Tyson’s Corner, coordinated by the Aba Agency, I met THEE fabolous Patricia Field (Rihanna ain’t go shit on her red hair…she’s the original dun-datta…). Field is an Academy Award nominated, Emmy Award winning film and television Costume Designer and a boutique owner with her own clothing label. She’s been around forever, but lots of folks heard more from her when she costumed HBO’s Sex and the City.


Guess who else we spotted? DC TV personality and socialite, Paul Wharton. Although most of us discovered Paul on the new season of Real Housewives of DC (..that can sometimes be quite frankly–a yawn fest…), he’s been on the scene for a while.

More after the skip.

Stalked. Beyonce’s Pink “Black Ball” Dress

We’ve found the dress that Beyonce sported at Thursday evening’s Keep A Child Alive annual gala. The dress is by Paris-based designer Andrew Gn.

Amongst my gf’s, i seem to be the only one that liked the dress. The jury’s still out about her hair. It kinda reminded me of her early Destiny’s Child Days, where hair was not her friend. She’s from Texas. She can’t help it.

Ear Hustlin…Rachel Zoe Preggers?

Preggers. I hate that word, but thought ‘knocked-up’ was un-lady like. According to NY Daily News, Rachel Zoe is 3 months pregnant.

“Rachel never really told anyone close to her that she and her husband Rodger were trying for a baby,” the mag’s source said, “and because of her ultra-skinny figure and habits as a workaholic it was the last thing on anyone’s mind.”

(my bff says that I’m just as excessive about my brand as rachel zoe is–roll your eyes if you like. there’s hope for me yet!!!)
