Excuse me for being so vulgar but who in the blue hell keeps letting T-Pain out of his cage so he can jump his ass in front of the camera?! Son they call you Teddy Penderass ’cause you look like you crawled out somebody’s crack. Akon got folks walking around thinking they are model material and shit. I give up.
A few weeks ago I took a trip down to Florida to catch T-Pain perform live. I know what you are already thinking and the shit wasn’t by choice. The concert wasn’t at a hole in the wall club, more like a dent in the sheetrock. Damn! I thought the audience would love him regardless though since he is from Tallahassee.
Wrong, wrong. This T-Pain we’re talking about.
It was about 200 attendees at the most, and I’m being generous with the number. He performed his signature songs “I’m Sprung” and “I’m In Luv With A Stripper” while the crowd gazed in confusion.
Watching this video of him covering “I Don’t Want To Be ” on Yahoo literally brought me to tears. It’s so wrong. It’s like watching him perform all over again. Leave that white man’s song alone please. Boy stop! Big thanks K for the laughs.
Mariah Carey took home two awards last night for her hit song “We Belong Together” and Songwriter of the Year, along with Miami-based producers Bigg D and Jim Jonsin. Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and Antonio “L.A.” Reid were named BMI Icons for their influence of Chinese slippers and lip gloss on today’s metrosexual rappers. Just making sure you were paying attention. But the two were recognized for their “enduring influence on generations of music makers.”
Kanye West earned producer of the year and Jazze Pha’s “1, 2 Step” won the topped spot for BMI Urban Ringtone Award. Damn, they give away awards for that shit now? Click here to see to find out who else won awards.

Mariah Carey; Ne-Yo; Big Gipp; Ciara ; T-Pain; Johnta Austin; Rick Ross; Lil Jon
10 Macy Gray “Ain’t nobody fuckin’ with her, so we can have good clean fun. I know she’s nasty.”
08 Oprah “Oprah can get it, but only if she pays for it. It don’t have to be much. It could be a one-time thing, $100 thing, and she’d be all good.”
07 Queen Latifah
06 Peggy, The Momma On “Married With Children” “I don’t know her real name, but she could get it. The bitch on ‘Married With Children’ was fine as fuck, even though nobody was looking at her with all that makeup on.”
05 Milla Jovovich
04 Pam Grier “She could get it, but only from the back cause something’s wrong with her face.”
03 Hilary Duff
02 Charli Baltimore “She can get it just cause of her hair. It’s fluctuating. And she’s taller than me, so I can lift her up.”
01 Shawnna “C’mon. First of all, she’s Shawnna. She can rap her ass off. I would love for her to rap to me while we’re getting it on. She’s just cute as hell. She’s hood too, so sometimes if I’m real tired and can’t fight, she’d probably fight for me. That’s why she’s number one on the list.”
Ladies we’ve all been here before. Its Ladies’ Night at your favorite spot and your right hand is up and the left got a cup. “Yo song” starts to play over the speakers and you head directly to the dance floor singing/rapping the lyrics when all of the sudden some greasy, sweaty, fawn-key ass, ran.dumb nigga starts trying to grind on you from behind. He then whispers in your ear with his hawt bref (yes, bref) “Um guhl, whatchu name is?”
The one-hour long season finale of Making The Band aired last night. Yes gang no longer will we hear “boom, kat, boom, kat kat” on the 10 Spot Thursday nights, cry me a river. On a side note did ya’ll know that Lorrie Ann was a Flyy Girl on In Living Color? I sure as hell didn’t until I saw her dancing around in some acid washed jeans last night on BET. Anyways, instead of complaining about the group of girls he selected I have another bone to pick.
Miss Jones from Hot 97 fame officially pissed me off last night. I know that she is known for her gritty interview style and that Diddy wanted to give the girls a taste of what they would have to endure by people who talk smack about them but my goodness. Jonesy looked like a damn fool when she was about to crack on ol’ girl from New Orleans outfit until she realized that Hurricane Katrina took every thing from he family. Then she tried to flip the script to and started showering the girl with praises. Hoe sit down. Speaking of which . . .
Ah hem. Tyra and all of the girls from this season along with some familiar faces from panel were all at The Avalon out in La La Land tocelebratethe season finale of America’s Next Top Model Wednesday night. Coryn (who actually looked like she was born with a vagina!) and Ebony (I’m so glad those braids are gone…it wasn’t a good look) were way more lovely in those flicks than on the show in my opinion. Like I told the Dealer, just because you don’t win the entire competition doesn’t mean a damn thing. Please believe this isn’t the last time we’re going to see any of the girls. Winner or loser the show provided them all with one vital thing, exposure.
Check out what Rich had to say about this whole debacle.
Fresh’s Two Cents
As I watched the video for “Be Without You” last night a light bulb in my head turned on. The media always gives Madonna credit on being the mother of reinvention but never seem to mention Mary J. Blige. Mary has had more hairstyles than a drag queen in Las Vegas over the past decade and a half. With every new album that she drops a new look always accompanies it. I think she has the Material Girl beat. You be the judge. Either way Mary has been too strong for too long to let these new chicks try to even attempt to put their paws on her crown.
Dumbass Fugees Opening Act Gets Dissed By Stage Dive
The Fugeess really love their Norwegian fans. Not only did the band reunite and kick off their world tour in Scandinavia, they also provided some fine comedic relief by the way of one of their opening acts. The nameless chick had delusions of grandeur when she thought the best way to end her set was to take a flying leap off of the stage and land into the arms of her adoring fans. Sadly all the people attending the sold out show were there for the Fugees only, not to catch some no name nobody. Listen closely to the THUD!!! as the crowd parts and then the aarrrggghhh…. as she lands on the cold cement floor- and then the customary laughing as the crowd acknowledges her stupidity. That must have been a really shameful walk back to the artist lounge. Warning: You have to suffer through a few seconds of screaming before the event- Sorry. (via Gossipish.com)
Click here towatch. That bitch thought she was on that kryptonite.
Sorry about the late post gang. I was tied upat the last minute.
Jay-Z took a break from his job as Beyonce’s purse watcher and was honored along with Mariah Carey for outstanding work that embodies excellence and intergrity at The Recording Academy Honors last night. Speaking of awards, the nominations for the Grammy’s were announced today. Artists reading nominations this morning included Natasha Bedingfield, Big & Rich, Mariah Carey, Chad Kroeger (Nickelback), Patti LaBelle, John Legend, Carly Simon, Sway (I’m not putting his name in bold, sorry), and CeCe Winans. Kanye West and Mariah Carey (surprise surprise) topped list with eight nominations while 50 Cent, Beyonce, and Alicia Keys received six nominations each. Ludacris,Mario, John Legend, Common, T.I., Ying Yang Twins, Destiny’s Child, Yolonda Adams, and Stevie Wonder are just a few of the many artist who were also nominated.
Of course I have a beef with a few of the nominees, one especially being The Black Eyed Peas who were nominated for the song “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” in the Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group category. What in the hell have the people at the Academy been smoking? They might as well put that fucking “Humps” song on there. At any rate the show will air Wednesday, Feb. 8 on CBS.
- Rod tipped me off this morning that in the new issue of Complex magazine Usher denies gay rumors in his cover story interview. When asked if any homosexual activities went down in those oh so famous orgies everyone’s heard about Usher had this to say:
There was women-on-women but never man-on-man. Shit, nowhere near that! Hell no! No one that I ever roll with or would ever roll with would get down like that.
Yeah fuckin’ right! Rod breaks it down so damn good about everything from anal action to relationship rumors with a trainer in ATL that I’m not going to even going to attempt to put my own twist on it. Lets just say that I was left clutching my pearls like Miss Jay.
- Ashanti has been making moves like Lil’ Kim before her trip to the big house. Murder Inc’s first lady has taken a break from performing at Bat Mitvahs to promote her new CD. She’s been popping up every place from 106 and Park to Regis and Kelly. Yesterday she appeared on TRL along with Dip Set enthusiast Lindsay Lohan. Shanti then partied the night away with pal Ja Rule, that kid from The Ultimate Hustler who looks like Shock G, and T-Pain. No comment on any of the aforementioned.
Busta Rhymes also made an appearance on TRL looking sick. Not the good sick but the “you got some ‘Tussin I can borrow” sick.
