Did He Really Say That??"Shout out to the slave masters!"- Soulja Boy

Author: The One // Category: , ,

Once again, Soulja Boy Tell'em puts his foot in his mouth! And really, this time--he's making Ice T's commentary look about right. This fool said "Shout out to the slave masters!! Without them we'd still be in Africa"
That was his response when Toure, from BET asked him- Who Do You Hate Most?? Some people said Bin Laden, Hitler, Slave Masters...

The Full Story from Toure'

WTF??? I don't know what they were teaching down in good ol Mississippi-- but in Louisiana and probably in most places across the country, we learned that the slave masters didn't bring us here- they purchased us,enslaved us, humiliated and deegraded us as a people!

Bid Em In-

Does he know why we have Affirmative Action-to redress negative effects of actual or perceived, past or current discrimination that is regarded as unjust by relevant legislative bodies--> In lamens terms- because 400 years of slavery crippled our people! The years of laws being formed preventing us from having the same luxuries and liberties as other ethnicities, crippled us!

Got damn...Pleassee get him a publicist and send him back to High School because it's ignorant statements like that...that kill Hip Hop.

Between him and Yung Berg...I just gotta ask -->Does Money Make You Dumb?

Brandy & John Legend Do TRL, Nelly & Ashanti Do Wicked, T.I. Votes, and more!

Author: The One // Category: , , , ,
Yesterday, Brandy and John Legend were on TRL Promoting their proects.

Brandy performed Departed- looking gorgeous, might I say.

Ashanti and Nelly pose at the 5th anniversary of "Wicked" benefit at the Gershwin Theatre on October 27, 2008 in New York City.


T.I. Votes:

No it's not me, there just isn't a day that goes by that he and Wayne aren't in the news! Talk about staying relevant.

Via Press Release
With his prior difficulties with the law, TI made it his point to emphasize that, while he thought he was ineligible to vote, others needed to get out to the polls to make a difference in their lives and their communities. Recently, he did further research on his own and discovered he was, in fact, still eligible to vote. Going to the polls early this morning in Atlanta, Georgia, was a transformative experience for him.

“Feels like I’ve taken advantage of my right to become a part of the democracy,” declared Clifford Harris aka T.I.. “It was definitely worth standing in line and doing all the things people complain about voting. I think it’s more than worth it.”

“The significance of T.I.’s leadership should not be underestimated,” emphasized Dr. Benjamin Chavis, President/CEO of HSAN. “T.I. has emerged as an effective national leader, inspiring millions of young people to vote in the 2008 elections. “

“T.I. is an inspiration to us all, showing that you can overcome anything,” concluded Reverend Yearwood. “He has become our Harry Belafonte of the 21st Century.“

Speaking of T.I....and Wayne...

T.I. and his fiance aka his "situation" were at Strains in ATL this week and so wasToya Carter, Wayne's ex wife, and Joy Bryant- Lyfe Jennings baby momma--So I entitle this pic:

Jamie Foxx's New Album???

Author: The One // Category: ,

Like I was totally clueless as well!!
Seems as if Jamie Foxx is working on his third studio album- Man's Intuition. What's even more shocking is the album is scheduled to drop December 16, 2008. <--Who Knew?

On this album Jamie will reveal his struggles with women.

The first single from the album is "Just Like Me" featuring T.I.. And I must say I've listened to it five times already-->It's smokin!

Beyonce, Powerhouse, Soul Men Premiere, Chilli does UPSCALE..

Author: The One // Category: , ,

Beyonce and her mom- Tina Knowles premiered the Cadillac Records inspired House of Dereon dress line at Bloomingdales in NYC.

Mrs. Carter was also her husband's suprise guess at the Powerhouse concert. Bey shimmed on stage giving the crowd a snippet of her single "Single Ladies" and flashing her ring.

Oh yeah, speaking of Powerhouse in NYC... the talk of the town was Will Wayne Show. O--Yes he did!!

Word is that Jay-Z had a talk with Wayne in regards to him being a No Show @ Powerhouse in Boston.....as sources are saying Wayne opted out the show at the last moment because- he doesn't do metal detectors. Which is quite believable because he also didn't perform at Fashion Rock's for the same reason.
I am a Wayne head--so the self-proclaimed Martian does no wrong in my book, but word on the grapevine is that Wayne is missing shows left and right due to intoxication<--which sounds like B.S to me-> because people live high..so don't blame the drugs and word from Wayne's camp is-> he isn't as high as the media portrays him to be.

The Premiere For SOUL MEN kicked off this week- the movie will be in theateres everywhere this FRIDAY!

Soul Men stars Samuel L Jackson, the late Bernie Mac and the late Isaac Hayes.
Directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the movie is about the reformation of a legendary soul singing band after the death of their leader.

The Premiere had a nice turn out- John Legend, Malik Yoba, Bernie Mac's wife and Daughter......

Chilli of TLC is featured in the upcoming issue of UPSCALE magazine. I wonder what's up with her album...at one point it was all buzz and now..not so much...

Talk about aging well...gosh

I'd Wrock It Wednesday!!!

This week the one celebs closet I'd raid would have to be.....Rihanna,

Did you see her in the "Live Your Life" video-> HAWT!

Just adorable!Loves me some Ri-Ri...

I know ya'll have seen these ads pop up every where..GREATGLAM.com...The Best Online Store being the curious person I am....the dress loving woman I am....I did the unimaginable..I CLICKED IT!
Sure did!! And suprisingly enough, there are some cute designs..the only thing that scares me about online shopping is the material. I'm a touchy-feely person, so when I shop I have to like the way the material feels.

This is a cute little club dress! As far as dresses are concerned, I am attracted to unique and bold cuts. And that's why this one jumped at me--> Cute in the front and the back.

The Footwork:

This is a BCBG peep toe ankle bootie. And it is fierce! Accented w/two gold adjustable buckles and a smooth leather outsole.

The Bag Game:

MICHAEL by Michael Kors: Black patent leather satchel. goldtone hardware. Shoulder straps.

We look Hawt! Don't cha think?

My President Is Black-->Barack The Vote!!

Author: The One // Category:
I voted today...HOW ABOUT YOU?

Every generation has its movements and its motivators--> This is ours! Our great grand parents had Megar Evans, G.W. Carver. Our grand parents had Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. And our parents had Al Sharpton(BOO)....well they had the opportunity to elect some of the first black mayors in to office in major cities- Carl B. Stokes- Cleveland, Dutch & Marc Morial-New Orleans, Maynard Jackson Jr.- Atlanta. The point is, we all have causes that are relevant an unforgettable that transcend time and electing the FIRST African American into presidency is ours. Not only because he's black, but because he is qualified, he's a democrat and the other option on the ballot..well lets just say--it's too much of the same ol politics.

A graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he served as president of the Harvard Law Review, Obama worked as a community organizer and practiced as a civil rights attorney before serving three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004.

He's a democrat...sorry the nation has failed miserably as an all republican nation for six years (Both house were majority republican for that amount of time plus the republican wack job we call a president which = a republican nation). And we won't even speak on the destruction that having 8 years under a republican president has caused- how many lives destroyed by greed, war and stupidity!

This is my "Go Barack" post. And believe it or not--> I am in good company!

Team Obama

Diddy says "Ain't No Line, Too Damn Long!"

And he has his twins talking to ya'll!

This action packed thriller is like a snippet from a Max Payne movie. I had to watch it 3 times to totally grasp the end(which is the beginning)<--yes I'm a short bus passenger.
But non the less it hot shit and it in some way re invents the song- for me.

I started not to post this, but it was funny as shit, so why not!
T.I. recently was on the Chelsea Latley show...I know he's been on every damn show-right! Well if you don't know who Chelsea Lately is, just know she's funny as hell, so trust she had Tip showin all 32's while he discussed his"SITUATION", his forth coming jail stint and his kids.

Seems to me Ms.Lately trynna add some sugar to Tips cappiciono! Heyyy--> I ain't even mad at her.

Comedian D.L. Hughley's CNN Premiere

Author: The One // Category: , ,

Yeah boy!! This is the funniest ish EVER!!! CNN gave Comedian D.L. Hughley his own show. CNN announced Wednesday that it will premiere a new, "unconventional" weekend show hosted by comedian D.L. Hughley. "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News," as the show is currently titled, will feature Hughley's humorous take on the week's events.

"D.L. is a news junkie who is bursting with things to say about what is going on in the world -- most of them funny, all of them thoughtful, none of them predictable," said Jon Klein, president of CNN/U.S. "When you watch as much news as our audience does, there comes a time you just want to stop and laugh -- and that time will be Saturday nights at 10 on CNN." CNN reps say.

The show premiered this weekend and is off to an awesome start.

So your wondering what was Hughley's first assignment?? Interview Palin supporters at a republican rally ,of course.
And D.L. did not disappoint!

Gosh her supporters are just as clueless as she is!
"Palin/Hughley 2012" LMFAO
