Denzel Washington Spotlight
Denzel Washington has hailed sultry actress Angelina Jolie as one of the sexiest women in Hollywood. Washington insists Jolie once joked, ‘the best sex she ever had was with his paraplegic character in the thriller, “Bone Collector.” Denzel responded, “Well what can I say! She’s very sexy-there’s a unique appeal about her, there’s just something about the way she moves. She’s like liquid.” Denzel Washington has slammed reports he advised actor Terrence Howard to avoid performing a controversial song at the Oscars earlier this month. Washington allegedly teamed up with Sidney Poitier and Will Smith to urge Howard to reconsider his performance of “It’s Hard Out Here Being A Pimp,” because black Hollywood stars could be offended by his crude lyrics. However, Washington insists he knew nothing about the song. He says, “No, that’s nonsense. That was in the press? Really? I didn’t even know he was singing that song.” (PanacheReport)
Three Six Mafia Explains Their Oscar Toting
Three 6 Mafia say they weren’t stunting when they were seen in Los Angeles carrying their Oscar around with them everywhere for two straight weeks. They were just being cautious.”We was in L.A. for two weeks and we didn’t get a chance to go home,” Juicy J explained during a trip to NYC last week. “So we had to carry the Oscar everywhere we went because they said we should get insurance for it because somebody might try to take it or rob you for it. It’s gold. It weighs eight and a half pounds.”The Juice says rolling with Oscar paid off immediately.”I couldn’t get in a club, so I pulled out the Oscar and they let me right in,” he revealed with a chuckle. “When I got back to Memphis, I put the Oscar in a fireproof safe. So if you try to burn the house down, you can’t burn the Oscar.”Three 6′s homies weren’t fazed by the group winning such a prestigious award. Heck, some of them didn’t even know what exactly the Mafia won.”A lot of my friends don’t even know what an Academy Award is,” Juicy said. “They thought I won a Grammy. I said, ‘N—a, you crazy. This is an Oscar, one of the biggest awards you can get.’ ” … (MTV)
TV Johnny & Wife: It’s official, grills are so played out now.
Ashanti recently shot the video for her new song “Still On It.” I must admit that I am feeling this joint. But from the looks of things I don’t know if I’m going to feel the same about the video. As long as she doesn’t attempt to dance we’re cool.
A Must Have For The Game Fans!
Stop Snitchin – Stop Lyin is the most controversial DVD in hip hop history. Multi-platinum rapper The Game is in rare form giving the world an inside look at what really went down after leaving his popular “unit” and dropping “300 Bars,” including the beginnings of the “G-UNot” movement. In “Stop Snitchin – Stop Lyin,” The Game candidly talks about his rap career, personal life, ex-label mates, and exposes the truth about the fall out with his former crew with help from the Black Wall Street camp and numerous other celebrities. There are no secrets kept inside this DVD, The Game exposes the whole truth and then some along his mission to hunt down “five-0″ that takes him from Los Angeles through New York City (including a stop to the G-UNot billboard in Jamaica Queens), finally ending in Farmington, Connecticut outside of 50′s house in a final show down between The Game against the unit you must see to believe!

“I’m not tryna be like Will Smith cause Will Smith is not a real rapper. He was more of a bubble gum rapper. The only real rappers out there right now are Me, Kanye, 50, and maybe Jay. But Jay ain’t in it like that no more.” – Bow Wow
Everyone from Diana Ross to Tyra Banks has one now. I’ve been thinking about trading mine in for one of the new models as well.

Investigators believe a faulty light fixture started the fire that damaged much of the church on Wednesday.The youth center was built with donations from Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child.
But what’s new? Anyways, gotta run watch Superhead on “Tyra.” This should be good.
I’m Having Testicle Difficulties!
Haloscan is working once again. Sorry for the inconvience.
There is currently a debate on different message boards about Halle Berry appearing in one of R.Kelly’s videos back in the day. Rumor has it that Halle was the video vixen crawling on the kitchen floor while Kelz fed her milk in the video for “Honey Love.”According to AOL Music the rumors are true. On the 11 Things To Know About R.Kelly (other then the fact that he loves girls 16 and under), Halle Berry’s appearance in the video is rank number three. Damn I learn something new everyday.
- Soul veteran Aretha Franklin threw lavish parties at a hotel in Detroit, Michigan last week for survivors of Hurricane Katrina. Approximately 40 survivors enjoyed the festivities. Franklin performed, chatted and posed for photographs with guests. She says, “It’s the right thing to do. Hopefully some of the other performers in town will follow suit.”
- Actress Gabrielle Union has so many relatives; they have their own parade each year. Union hails from Omaha, Nebraska where her family is legendary for its size. She says, “I’m actually from the largest black family in the state of Nebraska. We have our own parade in downtown Omaha every year.”
- At first glance these 13 year old twin sisters remind you a lot of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. But what remains unsaid is their message of hate and racism through their music. (More)

Can you keep up? I bet in this picture Beyonce is thinking “I was dancing in one of these in the video for “Naughty Girl” but it was a lot bigger. Hmmm?”
Let the congregation say “hell to the nah.” Its Passa Mase, ya’ll. I’m laughing at the fact that his stretch marks remind me of Star Jones’.
and Adam Levine
of Maroon 5 on the set of “Heard Em Say.” Although I listen to the album on the average of once a month, this is my favorite track off “Late Registration”. Its about time Kanye did something I liked!
There is a rumor buzzing around the internet that Mysterious (aka Psycho Bitch 3000) from the original season of Making The Band is pregnant. “Who in the blue hell is tapping that?” you might ask. From what I heard it was apparently Aaron Hall. Hell to the nah! Say it ain’t so! Rumor or truth the fact remains that this shit is just wrong.
Beyonce White Washed?
Beyonce Knowles, who appears on the cover of this month’s Vanity Fair, is the first African-American woman to front the glossy since Tina Turner flashed her gams in 1993. But is she too black for Graydon Carter? Publishing insiders have been whispering about the cover girls strangely pale visage ever since the November issue hit newsstands. Now, a high-level source at Vanity Fair is alleging that the mag digitally altered Beyonce’s image to appear several shades lighter. African-American entertainers have long complained about being ignored by mainstream magazines, which often avoid covers featuring black celebrities for fear that they will underperform on newsstands. Vanity Fair, which has drawn some of the sharpest criticism, has has not featured a solo black person on its cover since the late nineties, when it showcased Michael Jordan, Will Smith, and a clown-faced Chris Rock. (continue)
In my opinion I don’t think she appears any lighter than normal but my beef with Vanity is why did they put her on the cover of a hip hop issue? Beyonce ain’t hip hop! (Sorry I couldn’t help it. I’m still on my Making The Band kick. Remember that episode when they’re were giving Sara a hard time?)
Troll Cole Clears The Air Keyshia sat down with Angie Martinez’s non-rapping ass for an interview on October 7 . In the interview the two discussed her problem with Lil’ Mo (there is none, but very interesting to hear Keyshia’s side), the Kanye West tour, and how she and Ciara are the only two new girls doing their thing. Um, WTF? Bitch you just went gold. I’m not saying Uncle Ciara is better vocally (cause I personally think Keyshia has got her beat) but that girl is double platinum.
