If there is one thing I absolutely love and admire about Ne-Yo its that he never compromises his zest game by putting it on mute. His tang is always front and center for the world to see!
The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters held its 24th Annual Communications Awards Dinner on Wednesday night.
Honorees included: Idris Elba [NABOB Entertainer of the Year in Film & Television Award]; Louis Gossett, Jr. [NABOB Pioneer in Entertainment Award], Eartha Kitt [NABOB Lifetime Achievement Award], Ne-Yo [NABOB Entertainer of the Year in Music Award]; and Nancy Wilson [NABOB Pioneer in Music Award].
In news related to Idris Elba, Variety reports that he will star in a thriller titled “Obsessed” with the queen of remy hair herself, Beyonce.
I think this just may be Bust It Creole’s first non-singing role. Now give her a hand clap like Hurricane Chris.
R.Kelly dropped a diss track titled “I’m A Beast” aimed directly at the always timeless, always tangy Ne-Yo. I’ve had enough fuckery in my world in the last 24 hours to last me until June, so I will pass.

Is CB Baggin’ An Older Woman?
An inside source tells Sandra Rose
that Chris Brown has been motorboating his manager. I heard about this around the same time rumors circulated that a 30 something year old woman was pregnant by this young crooner. Here’s the skinny:
The young girls who have followed Chris Brown’s career since the beginning will not be happy with this news.
Apparently, rumors are flying about Chris Brown and his manager. The drama behind the scenes has become so disruptive that it threatens the start of the tour. My source tells me exclusively that Chris Brown has been intimate with his manger since she met him at the tender age of 16! And furthermore, he is “madly in love with her.”
For those who are not familiar with her, Chris Brown’s manager was the Senior Vice President of A&R at Def Jam when she met the young singer and attempted to sign him. She was also instrumental in signing Ne-Yo to Def Jam.
When Def Jam merged with Roc-A-Fella Records, she was forced to resign. According to Chris, who was by then smitten with the older woman, “When that happened, I asked her to be my manager, and she was happy to. She took me to Warner Brothers and Jive to look for other deals, and I ended up picking Jive at the end of the day.”
This explains why Chris has never been known to have a girlfriend. Apparently, Chris’ mom Joyce recently became aware of the situation and is not at all happy. “That’s where the drama comes in,” says my source. They say a mother always knows – but the happy couple managed to keep their relationship under wraps for 2 years.
Something In The Milk Ain’t Clean
‘Cause it got piss in it.
According to a statement released by Go-Go’s publicist this morning the singer/songwriter has been booted from from R.Kelly’s tour. You jealous Robert?
Yesterday, Shaffer Smith aka Ne-Yo was informed that he was being dropped from the rest of the R Kelly tour after delivering two sensational performances. Entertainment reporters, music critics, bloggers, fans, and concert goers all agreed that Ne-Yo’s performances brought the heat; but maybe it brought too much heat.
“He’s written hit songs for Beyonce “Irreplaceable” and Rihanna “Unfaithful” (spending a combined 19 weeks at #1 on the Hot 100), said Tango, Ne-Yo’s business partner and manager. He’s written songs slated to be on Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Lionel Richie, and Enrique Iglesias’ new albums. In a recent article in Ebony Magazine, the king of pop, Michael Jackson, referred to him as one of the artists that impresses him most. The fans were really feeling his performances. He’s good; maybe he’s too good – that’s the problem.”
It seems like déjà vu – didn’t R Kelly have drama on his last tour. R Kelly’s camp sited the lack of a signed contract as the reason for removing Ne-Yo from the line up.
“I don’t understand their actions because I was rehearsing, doing media, promoting the tour, and performing, said Ne-Yo. In my opinion, I was doing everything possible to make the tour a success. I love being on stage in front of fans because of the immediate feedback you get. You know right away if they are feeling you; and they were really feeling our show.”
Ne-Yo expressed genuine concern regarding not having the opportunity to complete the tour. He wanted all of his fans and supporters to be able to see him live. “To my fans and ticket holders – I apologize if you are disappointed.”
Every review I have read about the tour so far has said that Go-Go did his thing. This should give you even more reason to side-eye Kellz, folks.
This Is Getting Old Keyshia, Part II
KeyLoLo pulled out all of her diva antics at a show in Columbus, Georgia. Gossip folks are saying that the singer threw a bitch fit about her dressing room area being too small and having to go on stage before Ne-Yo. So she said fuck effort and didn’t even perform!
According to my girl StyleRazzi
she wanted to be the last act to hit the stage before R. Kelly because she feels that she is more of a “star” than Go-Go. Oh really
should’ve hit that bitch in the head with a glass ash tray. I’m just saying, little shit like this will turn off fans in the long run. She better play it humble or she will be end up on the side of Campbellton Road frying fish with D4L.
Black Fran Drescher celebrated her 27th birthday this past Saturday at Cafe Dupri in ATL. If you can look beyond her limited vocabulary (“the experience was bananas yo!”) and mediocre at best vocal abilities, she is really not that bad of a chickypoo. With that being said, I’m not trying to hear her and Nelly “harmonize” together on wax.
Is it a requirement that Ne-Yo look cunty all the time? It looks like he is pondering if he should change his pantyliner or not.
