Breaking news effecting Creoles all over the country: Etta James doesn’t give a fuck about a roots box.
At a recent public event, the legendary singer aired her grievances for President Barack Obama before threatening to whup “The Great” Beyonce’s ass. I can’t really be mad at the woman for having her own opinion about Obama but as far as, ahem, Beyaki is concerned . . . ha ha! Damn, I love old Black people! Take a listen after the jump!
Keyshia had a hell of a fashion fumble a couple of weeks back but she has been looking good every since. Although I’m giving that Solange-approved jacket the side-eye of death there is no denying she stepped her stylista game up this year. Andre Leon Talley would be proud! Now if she could only get Neffie’s eyebrows and nape area on board.
She performed at Power 99′s Holla-Day Jam in Camden, New Jersey last night along with Lil’ Wayne, Keri Hilson [she not gon' give up, no she ain't gon' let up] and Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes.
“A week or two after that happened [on FOX] I got invited to Prince’s house and that was such a big moment for me because I know all cool people get to go to Prince’s house. He was standing there and I was with a bunch of people and they were like, ‘You’re being such a pussy right now.’ ‘Cause I was like, ‘I’m just gonna sit here.’ And he walked up and was like, ‘I saw the FOX News thing’ and I was thinking to myself, ‘Shit even Prince is on my ass.’ And he was like, ‘And I loved it,’ and I was like, ‘Fuck yeah! Prince said that he likes me, so y’all can kiss my ass.’”
Director Alan Ferguson, Solange, Pete Wentz and his baby mama Ashlee Simpson attended the gallery opening of Pete Wentz and Travis McCoy’s ‘Without You I’m Just Me’ held at Gallery 1988 on Tuesday night.
Solange and Beyonce canceled their ‘Beyonce and Solange: Hope for the Holidays’ benefit earlier this week due to “irresolvable scheduling conflicts.” Which is really code for Kelandria and Tenitra both called in sick on the same day.
Beyaki and her tag along sis’s performances at the World Trainwreck Music Awards aired last night. As usual, Bey performed her “If I Was a Boy”/”Single Trannies” routine, but with a Michael Jackson marching band jacket and a couch to match. Solange and the Apollo Theater Rejects did their usual shit, half-lip synced.
Besides Alicia showing them how it’s done and Estelle’s Kizzy makeover [don't get me started on Kid Rock's hillbilly shit and Mimi's 10 second appearance], the rest of the people . . . I had just no idea who they were.
Lady GaGa is the pinnacle of different-ness! Since I am rocking one solo contact lens right now [long story but there was some hoe shit involved - - victory!] I thought she was the youngest Knowles sister at first.
Many of her fans believe that Christina Aguilera jacked her swag from the electropop singer. Whatever the case may ultimately be someone please notify Solange that she can turn her glow sticks in at the front desk.
More flicks of GaGa, Christian Siriano, T-Pain, Tyrese, Orland Brown [roflmao] and others at Interscope, Geffen, A&M Records’ American Music Awards after-party under the hood.
Yeah yeah, I’m mad late posting this shit but so what. I tried to avoid this mess but the Knowles have a way with people’s souls.
Break out your glow sticks because its time to get funky. Can you taste the hint of sarcasm peppered in my writing tone? Hopefully so.
The video for Solange’s third single titled “T.O.N.Y.” will leave you scratching your head and ass [or at least that was my experience] long after it has gone off. Our little Sol-AngeL struts down the city streets in dramatic cunt fashion all the way home where she later takes a pregnancy test and tah dah! Fertile Myrtle is knocked up. Full of raw emotions, she sends the results to her baby’s fav-vah who is equally devastated.
If it felt a little muggy on Sunday night it was because the planet got a little dose of global warning thanks to the party goers at Paper Magazine’s 4th Annual Nightlife Awards. Word to the wise: your sweet ass better run for cover when fever and tang collide.
Solange and her glowstick worthy outfits were no match for tangmasters such as Isis [from the current cycle America's Next Top Model] and Amanda Leopore. Factor in the Civil War proper phenomenon that is The James Gang and that bitch was virtually unnoticeable. And I didn’t even bring the Retro Kids into the equation.
