Oprah Won't Give Her Mother Her Phone #?

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

Well, according to her unauthorized biography by Kitty Kelley, Oprah’s mother doesn’t have her own daughter’s phone #. How does she reach Oprah? She calls Oprah’s assistant and leaves a message (to reach Oprah). Do I believe this? Besides the fact that it doesn’t matter if I believe it, I sorta do. I love all momma’s, but they do be on some other type ish sometimes. I bet if you’re reading this, you’ve probably ignored your mother’s call a time or two and you don’t even tape 3 shows a day. Not saying that I have!!!! Just sayin. Here for more alleged dirt and rumors via the new biography.


Marlon Wayans Defends Jim Carrey

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

Over the weekend, Jim Carey received flack for sharing some of his opinions via twitter. The tweet that pissed folks off, were his thoughts on Tiger’s alleged infidelity. He tweeted: “Tiger Woods owes nothing 2 anyone but himself.” And added, “I want 2 make it CLEAR that I do not condone infidelity at all, but 2 some degree the responsibility 4 it is shared by both people!”

Anywho, that apparently pissed some folks off. Marlon Wayan’s came to Carrey’s defense, noting that comedians (and I hope he feels ppl), should be able to share their opinions.

He tweeted, “There was a time when we were entitled to have an ipinion especially as a COMEDIAN. @JimCarrey is a brilliant comedian. He aint the prez.” about 4 hours ago via UberTwitter

Let’s not fry @JimCarrey for speaking his mind. U guys want 2 kno what we think. Don’t crucify us 4 havin an opinion or we’ll just STFU :( about 4 hours ago via UberTwitter

I stand on the front lines defending the voice and opinions of not just comedians but all PEOPLE. Comedians are the philosphers of 2day about 2 hours ago via UberTwitter

Would we try to silence socrates? Richard pryor? Lenny bruce? George carlin? Chris rock? Whoopi? 2 hell wit dat I’m gona speak my mind about 2 hours ago via UberTwitter

Now on a branding “handler” tip, I’d ask for Jim Carrey to shut the hell up and keep his thoughts to himself. Last I checked, women go to the box office and take their kids to his movies. Who needs them thinking that he condones Tiger’s cheating? On a personal tip, it may be a stretch for Wayans to refer to comedians as the “philosophers” of today. I mean, really. Let’s not go getting all crazy. I do agree, that we all have a different experience and opinion. We should be entitled to say whatever the heck we want (within reason).


Lady Gaga on Celibacy

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

This is funny, but dope @ the same time. Why funny? Because it’s actually news that a celebrity is discussing their sex-life or lack thereof . Why dope? Because little kiddies look up to Gaga and celibacy seems to be uncommon as of late. Good for her.

Anywho, Lady Gaga’s opening up on why she’s decided to become or remain celibate. She recently told London’s Daily Mail, “I can’t believe I’m saying this – don’t have sex. I’m single right now and I’ve chosen to be single because I don’t have the time to get to know anybody,” she said. “So it’s OK not to have sex, it’s OK to get to know people. I’m celibate, celibacy’s fine.”

“It’s OK to be whomever it is that you want to be,” she said. “You don’t have to have sex to feel good about yourself, and if you’re not ready, don’t do it. And if you are ready, there are free condoms given away at my concerts when you’re leaving!”


Elizabeth Taylor Clears the Air on Engagement

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

Last week, rumors were circulating that the lovely Elizabeth Taylor was recently engaged. She’s been married EIGHT times. No judgement. According to her twitter page (yes, Ms. Taylor tweets, boo), it ain’t happening. Peep her tweet:

The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true. Jason is my manager and dearest friend. I love him with all my heart. about 1 hour ago via web

On another note, Elizabeth cuts no cards on her twitter page. She shares her two cents on everything from Michael Jackson to “scum bag” tabloids.

It's Official, Rihanna Gave Kemp the "Label"

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

While on Ryan Seacrest’s show, Rihanna called Matt Kemp, “my boyfriend.” Well, ain’t that cute! What’s cuter is that she added, “nothing too serious. … I just want to have fun, and that’s what it’s about.” Call me lame, but I really think that they should take the Bey and Jay approach and keep things low. No one asked me though.

Listen to the audio of the radio interview, where she discusses her American Idol performance, her upcoming tour, etc.: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgxW_GciAFE]
