A Prayer for Chile AND the World...

A 8.8 Earthquake has hit Chile. More and more disasters like this is happening. It's time for us ALL to unite. Wherever you are in the world today, please recite the Lord's Prayer, someone has lost a wife, husband, child, cousin or friend. Take note to stop and pay attention to the warning signs, and please take heed!!

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
(King James Bible AD 1611)

According to Channel 4 News:
TV Chile reported that a 15-story building collapsed in the hardest-hit city of Concepcion, where cracks opened up in the streets. Buildings caught fire, road bridges collapsed and residents huddled in streets full of rubble of masonry and glass from destroyed homes. Many were terrified by powerful aftershocks and desperately trying to call friends and family.

Vogue Italia shows America how it's done!!..

Italian Vogue is taking on Bethann Hardison as Editor-at-Large for a new section of the magazine’s website. Vogue Italia previously wowed us with amazing shoots during Summer ‘08 that featured all black models.

When Vogue Italia’s groundbreaking “All Black Issue” hit newsstands in July 2008, the flush-with-Black-models mag was one of the most important fashion stories of the year–perhaps even the decade. Bethann Hardison, former model, agent, writer, businesswoman and all-around fashion force, wasn’t suprised at the instant success–she’d worked closely with Vogue Italia’s editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani to help bring the idea to life. Almost two years later, Sozzani has figured out a way to continue the discussion online! “Today, a new section of Vogue Italia’s website went live that’s devoted to Black models and issues in fashion,” says Hardison, who’s serving as editor-at-large for the channel. “Every week, I’ll introduce a new Black model to the international community, starting with Sedene Blake.”

Since the success of the “All Black Issue,” Vogue Italia has made a laudable effort to support and promote Black models. Sozzani dedicated the November 2008 issue of L’Uomo Vogue to Africa (half of the advertising revenue was donated to Africa-related charities). And in July 2009, to celebrate the first anniversary of the “All Black Issue,” Sozzani produced a special supplement dedicated to the history of the Black Barbie (the first doll, “Francie” hit shelves in 1967). According to Hardison, the fact that Vogue Italia is supporting Black culture right now is huge. “Milan has always been the toughest place for Black models to be,” she says. “When I was an agent, I never even wanted to send my girls to Italy. The change is astounding.”

Bravo a Vogue Italia and congratulations to fashion maven Bethann Hardison. As we continue to MOVE ON UP!!!


Hello and Happy Friday Everyone,
Lately I've been on a quest to find me, cause honestly I've been lost and found many times. Wouldn't life be so wonderful if you were given just a few 'do overs' another chance to go back and collect that 200 hundred dollars:) Seeing friends in the midst of it all, even though it's not your situation doesn't make it any less stressful. Realizing that it does take a village, and to acknowledge that lending a hand with your availability is not always easy. The rewards will come, but it shouldn't be the reason that you proceed. In all course of action, comes a price.

Taking toll, is to tally up your score and validate the reasons that you're willing to evaluate and come up with the precise sacrifice. Whenever a lesson is taught or learned, it comes from your willingness to expand on uncertain thoughts and procedures. I believe in second chances be it love, family, religion or any other form of compromise. Of late I've explored questions that I dare not touch, and was prepared for a not so favorable answer. Family secrets will come to light, the best part is you're not alone, because EVERYONE can relate on this subject matter one way or another, and believe me a toll is taken.

When you think of the creator, such an unselfish act, but what was given up, the gain was so much greater. In life will all pay a toll, keeping inventory is the very necessary process, sometimes the equation is wrong, other times you did not have it and had to borrow it. Remember even your time is borrowed, and has a price too. Rough times are still ahead, and when they come you have ammunition to buffer the battle wounds. Making the most of any given situation is learning to divide and delegate your toll and being okay with saying, this one may not be about me, but I got you.

What are you doing with your life?

I'm Just Saying...

Fashion icons Naomi Campbell and Lady GaGa paid tribute to their late friend by turning Alexander McQueen's funeral into a somber runway in London on Thursday. Gaga didn't care that it was a funeral she was STILL trying to give a show. McQueen actually was responsible for the creation of Gaga.

Simon and Ellen over at A.I. are throwing hissy fits, well Simon is being Simon, and since Ellen has her own identity AND money. She doesn't have to kiss his ass. Kinda makes you think maybe Paula Abdul should still be a judge on the show.

Singer Patti Labelle was on the Wendy Williams show yesterday, showing a try testament to the 'black doesn't crack' theory. Patti is 65 years beautiful and going strong. Wendy still wants to make it about 'her' and not her guests. Again WENDY no one really cares about YOUR personal life with your hood husband, you're success came from spilling it on CELEBRITIES personal lives. Long short yesterday, Wendy kept interrupting Ms. Patti, so here's some advice for you Wendy, the art of being a great conversationalist, is LEARNING to be a good listener. GOT IT???

Dang it's going down in Detroit....why why why? The FBI is preparing to file new corruption charges against former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and his father based on evidence the two took hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from Karl Kado, a little-known city contractor.
Kilpatrick resigned from office and pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice charges on Sept. 4, 2008, following an investigation that showed he used city resources to cover up a romantic affair with his chief of staff Christine Beatty. He served 99 days in jail and was ordered to pay restitution of $1 million to the city. Guess he can't hmm that tune about having 99 problems and a b*tch aint one of them. I'm Just Saying..

Actor Pooch Hall and rapper Nicki Minaj are hosting BET’s upcoming "Rip the Runway" special, which tapes Sat. Feb. 27 in New York for a broadcast date to be announced.
The annual fashion event, this year dubbed "Music Moving Fashion Forward," will feature performances from Minaj, Ludacris, Estelle, Janelle Monae, B.o.B and Roscoe Dash featuring Soulja Boy.Featured designers include Tracey Reese, Tennille White, Keva Swimwear, Gavin Douglass, and Protégé.

The Holly Robinson-Pete clan showing how it's done in HOLLYWOOD, and proving that we are a part of the 'normal' family structure in America, and showing at the end of day it's all about the F A M I L Y , and a SUCCESSFUL marriage!

Actor Brian White has been cast in the romantic comedy "Politics of Love," a film inspired by the real-life romances that blossomed during Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. President O and First Lady have made good love look sexxy.

Jermaine shoe polish head Jackson is up to his usual antics, this time it involves the only remaining superstar in the Jackson family, JANET!!! To generate interest in a Jackson reunion tour, he said that Janet would be on the lineup!! NO NO NO Janet called and had a knock out scream out match with her older brother, and set him straight.

Singer Christina Millian and husband producer The Dream should be welcoming their little bundle of joy any day now. Dream said that it will happen by this Sunday.

CORRECTION Jennifer Lopez is hosting SNL this weekend!! For those of you who are remotely interested.

Remember to every rumor, there's a certain bit of truth to it.

Hey Oprah, Dave Letterman, Wendy Williams and Ellen..

Command Performance

Zhane' was a talented duo, but like so many girl groups or groups in general, for some reason they all disband. Renee' and Jean had a nice flow, and they were true singer and musicians. The purity and nuance of 'Sweet Taste Of Love' echoes the days of new love when you had all the butterflies in your stomach, you know the feeling of anticipation of the next phone call. The good times, Zhane' was a nice moment in musical history.

Whitney Houston fans in Australia are complaining about her recent performances. She hasn't toured there in 13 years, and a LOT has happened. Rumors have alluded to Houston being in poor health, which aren't true, but perhaps more thought,time and prepartion should have gone into her "Nothing But Love" tour. I'm rooting for you Whitney, that's the price you pay for setting the bar so high. Btw her vocals aren't that bad, but clearly they are not at the level they once were.

Tyrese Gibson is set to play the late great Teddy Pendergrass. Now I'm just wondering who will play the late great Luther Vandross. Truth be told if it weren't for Teddy's accident, the careers of Luther and Freddie Jackson, might not have been so successful. Ironically both Teddy and Luther had shady dealings behind the stirring wheel of their cars.

According to TMZ ... Charlie Sheen could go back to jail because he has violated the terms of his bail -- specifically by using drugs or alcohol. But sources tell us Charlie's people are confident they will dodge this bullet. Of course he will, because he's white, why you playing?

Yung Berg -- the guy who rapped on the song "Sexy Can I" -- was violently beaten and robbed at a house in Los Angeles this weekend. According to law enforcement sources, Berg -- real name Christian Ward -- was at a house party at around 2:00 AM Monday morning when four suspects entered the home and brandished firearms. Damn Damn Damn, will we ever learn?

Oh NO nothing like a good cat homo Adam Lambert slammed Grandma Moses Susan Boyle saying that her debut single, the cover of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" made him "cry with laughter." Though I agree with Lambert, Boyle is the one who gets the last laugh, her mediocre CD sold buckets, which is the best defense, so Lambert poor kitty, you've just been KO'D!!

Russell Simmons is such a little YOTCH(B*tch)...Russy gave an interview yesterday with New York’s very conservative republican newspaper, the NY Post, and in it he suggested that rapper Jay Z and the NY Governor were in some kind of CORRUPT DEALING. Here is how the paper is reporting it:
Simmons said the firm he advises -- Penn National Gaming -- and not AEG should have won the contract to operate 4,500 video-lottery terminals at the faded horse racing facility. "Why didn't the leadership just take the best deal for the people? [Jay Z’s deal] just wasn't the best deal for New York . . . Can any of my dear friends in New York government tell me where and when did it all go wrong . . . They offered the most money to the state, by $100 million, up front. They can pay the fastest because they have the money in the bank," Oh lawd hopefully this doesn't turn into another Tupac/Biggie situation.

SMH...Pole Dancing is about become a sport at the Olympics 2012 in London!!...What is the world coming to? First the add the word 'Bootilicious' to Webster's and now this. UMPH UMPH UMPH

Monica premiered her "Everything To Me" video on BET's 106&Park yesterday. The video is SMOKING hot, and the primise is basically Beyonce's movie "Obsessed" and it was styled by the late Alexander McQueen, whom Monica dedicated the video to. The song is FIYAH, and Monica is rocking hot fashions throughout the video, and her love interest is none other than..Chad Ochocinco. So a little something for everybody.

Sade's new CD 'Soldier Of Love' holds on to the #1 spot in next weeks Billboard magazine.

I'm Just Saying..

Some cell mate just got lucky....pretty boy Former NBA star Jayson Williams was just sentenced to five years in prison for the 2002 shooting death of his limo driver, Costas Christofi, and will be available for parole after 18 months.

Yesterday I reported that Jennifer Lopez is going to host SNL to support her hew feature film AND to support her new CD. Well Sony Records had other ideas, as they have decided to drop Lopez from their label. Basically what that means, is that the public was not responding to her new music. It's a hard knock life when you're over 40 and the record buying public is basically under 19.

Angelina Jolie began filming her newest flick, The Tourist, yesterday in the City of Love. Sans Johnny Depp, Angie worked on some solo scenes and looking absolutely stunning while doing so.
Oh my I certainly hope that Angelina can keep her hands to herself, usually whoever is her co-star she beds. Remember what happened when she was filming Mr & Mrs Smith with Brad Pitt....XXXXXXXXXXXXXxxxactly:)

Paula Abdul got Oprah Winfrey's stamp of approval to film a pilot for her personal network OWN! Paula you had best bring your A game cause Momma O' don't play.

Jay Leno returns to late night with The Tonight Show duties next week, and his guest list looks stellar. Jamie Foxx will be his first guest and America will be watching to see how he performs in the ratings, which I think he'll be okay. He really shouldve never had to step down to begin with. If ain't broke don't fix it.

A production company is suing celeb gossip site over the use of an interview with Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe.
F. Marc Schaffel Productions says it’s the owner of the 2003 interview with Rowe – some of which aired that year while other portions were held back as private and confidential, subject to a joint consent agreement between the interviewer and interviewee. TMZ always pushing the envelope...and some time it's NOT a good look!!

Back in the day Whitney did damage control by marrying Bobby broke ass Brown, and now Alicia HE's is doing it by marrying Swizz Beats. UMPH UMPH UMPH....well Alicia your latest CD offering is whack, and what you're trying to sell, WE ain't buying. It's just a smoke screen boo, and we're ON to you.

50 Cent has to lose 65 pounds for her latest film roll, and NO he's NOT playing a crack head:) We will watch the movie if he can achieve this goal alone! Randall Emmett the co-producer of Curtis Jackson’s upcoming movie Things Fall Apart tells Variety the rapper will lose 65 pounds for his role despite heading off on tour of Europe for the next month and a half. Once he achieves his new look Fifty will play a a football star who is suffering from cancer in his senior year aside Mario Van Peebles and Lynn Whitfield.

Remember to every rumor, there's a certain bit of truth to it.

I'm Just Saying..

Golf Superstar Tiger Woods press conference on Friday, was VERY scripted and not so heartfelt. I personally feel that he didn't owe the world an explanation. He owes his wifey the apology. If she's okay with it, then he needs to KEEP IT MOVING!!! After watching the press conference It was clear to see that Woods has NO personality or charisma. Could be that he saves all of that for the Golf course and the Bedroom!!

Leonardi DiCarprio's new flick "Shutter Island" was the #1 movie at the Box Office bringing in over 40 million dollars.

Actor Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish have split after their four year courtship. Now maybe he and Reese Witherspoon can get back together and STOP bullsh*tting. They were a great couple.

Angelina Jolie and her once-estranged father, actor Jon Voight, were photographed together in Venice! Voight joined the Jolie-Pitt clan on a boat down the Grand Canal on Sunday afternoon, and the entire crew was all smiles! Nothing like a Family Reunion, in all families the drama and dysfunctions exist, clearly they are no different.

So it looks like late night talk show hostess,comedienne and actress Mo'Nique is going to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for "Precious". I'm curious to see if she'll still do her late night talk show, or will all the buzz go to her head. I've said this before, I personally don't want her to win. White America rewards us for work that's degrading and animalistic i.e Halle Berry in "Monster's Ball", Denzel Washington in "Training Day". On rare occasion we're rewarded for a great performance like Louis Gossett Jr in "A Officer and A Gentleman", Whoopi Goldberg in "Ghost" and Cuba Gooding in "Jerry McGuire", oddly enough after those three won their Oscars their careers were never the same, so it's like you're damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Superstar Whitney Houston who is on tour in the UK, threw a hissy fit when her car arrived at the airport two minutes late. Ms. Houston declared this is some "Bullsh*t". Hmmm really Whitney is it that serious Ma?

Rihanna celebrated her birthday this past weekend with a bunch of midget strippers, maybe that's an indication of how 'short' her career will be. Hmm I'm Just Saying.

NFL baller Chad Ochoconco just put his EX Maya on BLAST!!!
Apparently Maya, who is of Middle-Eastern descent, was talking real RECKLESS on Twitter - implying that Chad cheated on her.
In response, Chad ADMITTED to having multiple jump offs while he was with her. According to Chad he needed the jump offs because Maya wasn't "handling her business." Oh Lawd please don't let one of those KKK sisters hear that news, you know how much they love black d*ck AND he's a rich football player. Chad beware...if one of them Ho's get you....they won't let you go!!

Jennifer Lopez is geared to host SNL in March and she's guest starring in a episode of the CBS hit show "How I Met Your Mother". Seems like ole girl is trying to get her swag back.

Punk rocker Ke$ha song "Tik Tok" has been number one for nine straight weeks, even fighting off the whack remake of "We Are The World" which debut last week @ #2 on the Billboard charts. If you put the needle to record on "Tik Tok" you will bounce, the song is catchy, simple and fun.

Remember to every rumor, there's a certain bit of truth to it.

Happy (TGIF) Everyone,
Lent is here, which can be used as another form of a New Years Resolution, but of course it holds a deeper meaning because of the religious foundation. Ironically we're barely into the new year, and some of you have already lost your focus. Lent gives you a reprieve. This time you only have to refrain from bad habits for forty days. When you think of the sacrifice that our creator did for us, isn't it worth it?

Fortitude speaks to strength of mind that enables one to endure adversity with courage. Hurdles and obstacles are road blocks laid for obstruction, but you are the one who holds the power to divine devotion and redemption. I can merely suggest things, but with all things, presentation and a solid fail proof plan has to be executed. In this world their are more follower's than leaders. Don't be afraid to use your autonomy to direct your course. Without a clear direction in life, you will continue to go round in circles.

In the trenches to greatness, hard work and consistency is a must. Staying steadfast eventually the shackles will come off, and when they do it's your chance to shake loose the constraints that has held you down. We're at the stage in our lives when we know, that we can't place fault or blame on others. Seeking truth is ABSOLUTE to knock the walls down, that you've somehow managed to build up.

Idle is another word to rid yourself of. Idle means to stay put, to merely exist. You cannot accept complacency, much work is needed. Another's loss is somebody else's gain. You can sit on the sidelines and watch, or be a part that conquers and divides. It's up to you decide if you're to be weak or strong. One or the other, just know your mission. Once you can navigate your way in your decision, the path and direction becomes vividly clear.

What Are You Doing With Your Life?

I'm Just Saying...

The color of the medal mattered, not the color of his skin. All Shani Davis was thinking about was gold. With a furious kick on the final lap Wednesday, Davis stuck his skate across the line and won his second straight Olympic title in 1,000-meter speed skating, the first skater to win this event twice at the Winter Games.

“That race depleted me 100 percent,” he said. “I never want to leave anything on the track.” “Those last 200, 300 meters were very difficult,” said Davis, who usually leaves his left arm on his back until the final straightaway. “I was just trying to carry my speed. I could feel it leaving me. It doesn’t matter what it looks like, just as long as you get across the line as quick as you could.”
When he won this race four years ago, Davis became the first African-American athlete to win an individual gold at the Winter Games. This time, he simply wanted to be known for his skating.

“When you’re a world champion or an Olympic champion, you get this little thing on your back called a target,” Davis said. “To go out there and win the 1,000 meters twice is truly amazing. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Golf Superstar Tiger Woods will break his silence tomorrow at a press conference about his infidelity. Tiger you're a brave man, if it were me, I'd say stay the phuck out my business. If his gold digging hussy wifey is willing to take him back, who are we to judge? THERE I SAID IT!!! LOL Everytime I say something positive about Woods, I get so much mail from females who think that I must creep too, well you're WRONG!!

Mr. little pee pee Levi Johnston is headed to court. Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol is taking her scum ex-boyfriend to meet the judge. Apparently he owes his monthly child support payments of $1,688.42. Levi posed for Playgirl magazine, I'm sure he made some kind of money. Don't be a deadbeat Father.

Actor Nicolas Cage is blaming his accountant on his financial woes. Well Nicky baby, it's up to you for pay attention to your OWN money. In Hollywood it's a charmed life. Most people will never see a 20 million dollar paycheck. Your life is a charmed one, but seriously if you can't budget five hundred dollars, how the hell are you going to budget 20 million. I don't feel sorry for him. Hopefully next go round you'll be wiser about what you're doing with your money.

Jermaine JD Dupri has come up with what could turn out to be a pretty good idea. He’s recruited Usher, Robin Thicke, Tyrese and Trey Songz for a cover version of Quincy Jones’ classic 1989 smash hit “The Secret Garden (Sweet Seduction Suite).” The late great Barry White's voice will still be a part of the record, which is genius, only glitch, I wouldn't use Thicke, why not Rahsaan Patterson, Kenny Lattimore or Eric Benet? The remake will appear on Q's next CD release.

Wouldn't it be amazing if Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Missy, Mary J and Eve got together to remake the Hip Hop classic 'Ladies Night'? All of those ladies are in need of a hit. Put your petty differences aside and get the money.

Late night talk show hostess Mo'Nique continues to step her game up. Once you get past her monologue, her show is top shelf. She highlights African Americans, who arent' getting air time on the 'other' shows. Recently her guests have been grade A such as Pattie Labelle and Anita Baker, BeBe and CeCe, Jill Scott, Lela Rochon, Jaheim, Joe, Kid and Play, India Arie, Will Downing, Director Lee Daniels, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Regina King, Boris Kudjoe, Stephanie Mills, Miki Howard, Laura Izibor....and the list goes on and on. Tune into her show, I promise you it's truly worth it. Mo'Nique you're making me eat my words. I'm proud of you ... because the show is quality!!

Rihanna is set to star in Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon with Samuel L. Jackson. I'm not excited, about this movie, because it was a weak story, but the eye candy was good back in the day.

Remember to every rumor, there's a certain bit of truth to it.

Hey Oprah, Dave Letterman, Wendy Williams and Ellen..

Command Performance

Pink is incredibly talented, and for some reason she flies under the radar. She's been a solid ticket draw for over ten years. Other's come on and go, Pink is quietly consistant, and she ALWAYS speaks her mind. She's got the goods, not only is she a terrific singer, but she's a great songwriter too. I love this performance because it's campy and fun, also the 'Get The Party Started' is one of my favorite songs by her.

I'm Just Saying...

Since Lady Gaga and after Pink's recent kick ass Grammy Performance, does anyone really care about BRITNEY SPEARS anymore? Wasn't it less than 18 months ago, when she was pulling ALL kinds of crazy, and on every magazine cover? Apparently being crazy ISN'T in Style this week HOLLYWEIRD!! When I look at Spears ad for Candy's ... I'm stomped with a WHY?

An L.A. judge just ordered Ol G Mattie Knowles to pay $8,200 a month in child support, retroactive to February 1. Knowles must also pay 100% of uninsured medical costs.
Alexsandra Wright claims she had an 18-month relationship with Knowles and he's the baby daddy of Nixon -- born February 4.
Wright's lawyer, Neal Hersh, went to court today asking for support and the judge granted it. Knowles will take a DNA test March 1 ... and the long-term support issues hinge on the outcome. It's interesting -- Knowles has not flat out denied he's the daddy. And in fact, he gave Alexsandra $10,000 in January to cover uninsured medical costs and baby stuff.
UPDATE: The Judge ordered Knowles to pay Wright $20,750 for the month of January. Now that's what I call G A N G S T A.....the mistress is on the come up. That Ol G, shouldve put on a jimmy!!

Question so if you're a part of Hollywood doesn't the sex, drugs and alcohol go hand in hand? Or is it a excuse for poor behavior? Charile Sheen has been in and out of the law for years, which (white) America seems to give hima pass, because that's considered 'sexxy'. Sheen has abused two wives, again, acceptable. Chris Brown abused Rihanna, but (white) America deems him a animal. Lindsay Lohah, Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse ALL drunks and dopers, again ACCEPTABLE!! Whitney Houston battled drugs and addiction, she's rediculed for it. Hmmm I'm lost, so what gives? I can talk about this subject and give comparisons all day. We're in 2010, and change isn't really happening. I'm JUST Saying..

Labron James was seen hanging out with Kanye West's eraser head 'girlfriend', but I think the bigger story is what is really going on with Kanye West, Labron and Eraser Head. Yes that's the real story, I could throw some other names in the mix, but just like with Gumbo, you could almost throw anything in, and it works.

Rocker chick Avril Lavigne and wannabe star Brody Jenner are a new item of late, amazingly no one has told Lavigne that he divorce ISNT final yet, because the two have been getting 'IT' in lately.

Rapper Drake wanted to work with Sade on his upcoming 'Thank You Later' CD, but the lovely lady wasn't feeling the love. Guess that's the luxury of having the #1 CD in the country with sales of over 480.000 copies in your first week, AFTER being away from damn near ten years, now that's what I call SWAGGER!!

Ashy off key singer Ashanti is STILL trying to get her Hollywood ON. Even after her rapper ex boyfriend Nelly dumped her. Now she's spreading that 'good good' to the likes of Dr. Dre who we know ISN'T interested, and YOU know why:) and the Game, who might hit it. Both rappers are producing tracks for her upcoming CD. I'm amazed she still has a recording contract. Wouldn't she be better off selling cosmetics at the Nordstroms or Macy's counters?

Remember to every rumor, there's a certain bit of truth to it.

Hey Oprah, Dave Letterman, Wendy Williams and Ellen..

Celebrating Black History Month!!!

Two Entertainment Legends, the first lady of song Ms. Ella Fitzgerald, and the candy man Mr. Sammy Davis Jr. These two show biz legends, paved the way and open the doors for other African Americans to walk through. Though the road was not a smooth one, as they both faced adversity, racism and bigotry. Somehow they survived it all, and did so with dignity, style, integrity and class!! As we celebrate Black History Month, we thank you for your efforts and we SALUTE you, on a job well done.

I'm a MUSIC LOVER,and I'm STILL trying to find a way to bring retailers back into record stores. Call me a dinosaur, but I think we need to continue supporting music and NOT downloading. And FYI....that's SOME of my music collection.

Earvin 'Magic' Johnson is getting his business on, now ol boy is the NEW owner of EBONY Magazine. He continues to grow his empire. Congrats Magic!!

Talk show big mouth Wendy Williams has gone soft. I'm not interested in her show that much anymore. It's all wholesome granola. Being a campy witch is what's gotten on her on TV, now she's been reduced to being a fan of all the celebs that she talked shit about for YEARS!!! Word to Wendy, no one really cares about your personal life, and what you did over the weekend. Step your game up, or you will be CANCELLED and a thing of the past...can you say H I S T O R Y!! I'm JUST saying!!

Production on 24 has come to a brief halt this morning as star Kiefer Sutherland is in need of immediate surgery for a ruptured cyst near his kidney. Kiefer we're wishing you a speedy recovery.

Big Ups goes out to Momma O'. Racist bigot John Mayer wanted to go on her show to redeem himself for his dumb ass racist statements last week. Oprah said HELL TA THE NAW!!!

Old bitty Barbara Walters will have a final Oscar special. Barbara's last special will air on the same night as the Oscars, March 7 and will have interviews with both Sandra Bullock and Mo'Nique. Walters interviews are very stale and passe'. She wouldn't know what is relevant or not.

So getting the milk for free, must have been worth it, because now Joel Madden has proposed to girlfriend socialite Nicole Richie, and the ring is HUGE!!

Sade returns to the #1 spot on the Billboard charts next week. The fans have spoken. Welcome back beautiful.

I'm Just Saying...

It was haute couture for a high cause. Supermodel Naomi Campbell summoned her famous friends last night to put on a star-studded fashion show to raise money for quake-ravaged Haiti.

Fantasia is up to her old tricks again, I went to see the Color Purple in Los Angeles this weekend and the line was around the corner, anticipation was high. Only a few weeks ago, Tasia promised Momma O' (on her show) that she wasn't going to cancel, well apparently she forgot that conversation. Folks who were in line for refunds were PISSED to say the least. Get it together Fantasia, or your career will be over, just as quickly as it began.

Valentine's Day was the #1 movie at the Box Office this weekend, bringing in over 52 million dollars. America's Sweetheart Julia Roberts was in the movie all of six minutes, and received a staggering 3 million dollar paycheck. Success does has it's rewards.

Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie premiered their new version of 'We Are The World' 25 years later, this time a new array of stars, MOST not worthy, and the one's who were invited were NOT showcased, like Gladys Knight, Natalie Cole, Usher, Toni Braxton and Faith Evans were all reduced to being background singers to the likes of Nicole Scherzinger and Justin Bieber. Will we 'ever' learn to get it right?

BOOOOOOOOO's go out to NBC for showing the raw footage of the death of Olympic hopeful Nodar Kumitashvili, who was only 21 years of age. NBC showed their footage over and over during the Opening of the Winter Games!! At what point does human compassion come into play? NBC shame on you. Our hearts go out to his family.

Movie critic Roger Ebert took to his Twitter to call out John Mayer's racist comments by simply Tweeting: "To John Mayer regarding black women: What's not to like?"Ebert is married to Charlie "Chaz" Hammel - Smith who happens to be a black attorney.
Face it, John Mayer is a racist idiot asshole, and he's allowed to his opinion, now we all know where he stands.

Remember to every rumor, there's a certain bit of truth to it.

Secrets of A Sparrow/TGIF

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone,

Love is in the air. Love is always a sacrifice. The emotions of life and love. This is Valentine's Day weekend. Some of us have a special love in our lives, while others are hoping to find someone who will complete them. Love is never an easy journey to embark on. Communication, though it should be easy, is very hard to stay proactive in pursuit. In love there will be peaks and valleys, and struggle will exist, as temptations are always persistent.

Love is a pantheon that we aspire to have in our lives. Show me someone who have never been in love before and I'll show you someone who hasn't lived. A broken heart will heal, but rest assure you will forever be changed. If life is like the secret of a sparrow, we ask the universe to lead us, then love is the aspiration of visualization to some of life's greatest achievements. Believe it or not, heartbreak is the ultimate test of boundaries on a leap of faith. We don't know what the future holds, everyday begins as a mystery.

When someone shows you their true colors, believe it!! Good, bad or indifferent, don't try to make an excuse for them, either you accept someone or you don't. With that said, I can say that I find love to be the greatest emotion, the highs and lows, all worth the gallant effort to allow someone to come into your life, and love and care for you. To have your heart racing with exhilarance that you never knew existed is, in my humble opinion, one of the cherry bonuses to life.

What are you doing with your life?

I'm Just Saying..

Singer John Mayer used the 'N' word in a recent interview, and now he's crusading for forgiveness. With his I didn't mean it like that..and blah blah blah's!!! HO BAG your said it, AND apparently meant it. White folk have it so easy, they can say and do ANY damn thing. ENUFF!!!

Boxer Evander Holyfield recently thought he was Ike Turner, when he bitch punched his wifey for not paying enough tithes to Creflo Dollar. UMPH UMPH UMPH...what' next?

R.I.P. Fashion Designer Alexander McQueen Dies, Cause of Death Unknown. His mother passed last week, he probably couldn't bear it anymore.

It's Valentines Day weekend everyone...any plans? any new loves? Here in Los Angeles this weekend, I'll be attending the Color Purple featurning Fantasia, and I'll be hanging with Ms. Square Biz herself Teena Marie. I'll keep you posted on what and who I see this weekend as I always do. Remember what you do in the dark ALWAYS comes to the light.

Command Performance

In all her naturalness:) Jill Scott came on the scene shortly after Erykah Badu, and challenged her for the thrown of Neo Soul Queen. Luckily for us, both of these ladies along with India Arie decided to share the title. Artistry is so beautiful, but it's freedom of expression and interpretation. 'Golden' is a movement and it yelps empowerment. Enjoy!!

Only in HOLLYHOOD. A reprieve Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated? court date and sentencing was pushed back until March 2nd allegedly because he needs to have time to surgically remove his diamond grill from his mouth. The surgery is scheduled to take place on February 12th in Miami and in court today the judge told the rapper to hurry back to Miami and take his 10 days to recover.

Our hearts go out to Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr, who is battling Prostate Cancer. He's undergoing medical treatment. We will him well. Prostate Cancer is one of the cancers that can be beaten, with early detection.

As much as I love Ellen, it's time for her to come up with some new dance moves, or a new monologue opening, it's past stale.

Jay Leno's last prime time show aired last night, and he had Kanye West on it...and no fireworks. Guess both men, know what lies ahead of them. The world will be watching both of their comebacks. I'm rooting for Kanye West, because he's amazingly talent, and I kinda like his big mouth...he damn sure makes you pay attention:)

How ironic that Superstar singer Pink has been in the business for ten plus years, yet people never fully take notice to her, then all of sudden the Grammy show comes on and you're feeling that Lady Gaga,Black Eyed Peas or Beyounce' will give the performances of their lives....and tried tested and true Pink STEALS the show with her incredible performance, and we're once again reminded of what 'true' talent and entertainment is all about. BRAVO Pink you made it rain on them ho's LITERALLY!!

Oscar winning actress Julia Roberts made a HUGE mistake by turning down the movie "The Blind Side" has a new movie opening this weekend called "Valentine's Day" we wish her MUCH needed luck with this movie, because it will never make the movie that Sandra Bullock's BLIND SIDE has made, and I will also go record to say that Bullock WILL win the Best Actress Oscar this year.

I'm Just Saying..

It seems Usher will NEVER learn. His Raymond VS Raymond CD has been pushed back YET again, the new release date is March 30TH. Raymond severed ties with his Mother back in November 09. Once again, trying to cover up his dl get down, he was trying to date a label represenative, and that's when all hell broke loose. This is a similar situation to his last CD release "Here I Am" when he let his ex-wifey manage his career, and you see how that turned out. Usher if you know what's best, you'll beg your mom's pardon, so she can continue making your brand LARGE, after all it was SHE he helped you to get this far.

Today Sade's "SOLDIER OF LOVE" CD drops....FINALLY and I know the world is going to love it. She took her time, but it was well worth the wait.

A-Rod certainly gets around now his mashing Cameron Diaz. And let the cook begin ticking, and we'll see how long this one lasts.

Actress MAIA CAMPBELL is out of rehab, and we wish her well. Not so long ago, she was on the streets doing everything and anything to survive. Good luck babygirl, we're rooting for you.

CORRECTION...a few weeks back I reported that Ol G' Matty Knowles had another daughter to add to his family tree, it's NOT a daughter but he has a SON, and his name is Nixon!

One of the coolest Super Bowl commercials was David Letterman, Momma O and Jay Leno. Now that's what I call a GREAT promo campaign. Seems the two late night rivals, have buried the hatchett. Conan now it's your move...what you gon do bitch? LMAO I'm JUST saying..

Rapper Lil Wayne a date today to JAIL, scary ugly begins his one year sentence today. Hopefully no prisoners will drop the soap around him, you know he's loaded and ready to shoot...everyone he touches gets prenant.

Beyonce' Knowles and Russell Crowe have signed on to do a remake of 'A Star Is Born', why? why? why? does HOLLYWOOD want to phuck up the classics. It's being reported that Knowles will have a full ON love scene with Crowe. So for the folks that are interested there you have it!!!

Singer Faith Evans returns to the scene of music this year, and will have a reality series showcasing her return. The reality show will air on E! Entertainment television. I for one and SICK of reality shows. Will it EVER end? With that said..I'm glad that Faith is getting back to her business, and that is MUSIC!

I'm Just Saying..

Okay already for the complaining females readers who say I cater too much to showcasing beautiful woman for eye candy, here's a HAPPY MONDAY to you.....this ONE is for you. Hopefully you guys(ladies) are happy now:)

FINALLY a new #1 Movie "Dear John" KO'd "Avatar" @ the Box Office this weekend, ranking in over 32 million dollars.

Super Bowl talent booker got it wrong AGAIN!!! Why in the hell did they have The Who performing for Half Time? Goes to prove that programmers more so than not..are STILL getting sh*t wrong.

I love me some Carrie Underwood, and God knows that I do, but if she's trying to make America forgot about bambi girl Taylor Swift, her performance of the National Anthem at yesterday's Super Bowl, is NOT going to win her favor. Her performance was AWFUL!!

Cable news religious beauty pageant Carrie Prejean has gotten engaged to her NFL star boyfriend, Rams quarterback Kyle Boller. Good for her! Apparently she's not as dumb as she seems.

Top Model winnner Eva Pigford and her actor boyfriend Lance Gross got into a little tiff this weekend in Miami. Gross was getting too much attention from female groupies, and the model fiance' got pissed and stormed off. Talk about 'drama'. I always thought their being a couple was a sham...I'm probably right. I'm JUST Sayin..

Let's hope that Reggie Bush who get punk'd yesterday on the field, wont be a punk in his real life. It's time for him to dump his porn star hustle whore, and come back to his own. There I said, and I MEANT it!!

Anne Hathaway has revealed that she and her family made the difficult decision to leave the Catholic church when Hathaway's brother came out."The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out," Anne revealed in a recent interview with GQ. "Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?" Now that's what I call brotherly and sisterly love! Let's hope that God see's it the same way.

Chris Brown FINALLY got some love from the industry. Friday he got to perform two songs for the SOS Haiti Telethon, and he brought the house down. It's time to more on people...DAMMIT it's time.

This is a SMH and WTF moment, read on.....The opening night speaker at the Tea Party convention suggested a return to a “literacy test” to protect America from presidents like Obama a segregation-era method employed by southern US states to keep blacks from voting.
In his speech Thursday to attendees, former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo invoked the loaded pre-civil rights era buzzword, saying that President Barack Obama was elected because “we do not have a civics, literacy test before people can vote in this country. Well my question is...what clause excludes "Hillbillies and Red Necks"?

Golf Superstar Tiger Woods will make his return to the Golfing World March 22/23 and you can best believe all EYES/CAMERAS will be on him.

Happy Friday it's..,Superbowl Weekend...GEAUX Saints

The Time is NOW!! No more sitting back waiting for your desires to come to you. Procrastination was a part of the last decade. Stepping up to the plate, claiming all that you can attain. You and you alone hold the power for self. We can always find fault in why things haven't happened for us. It takes real ownership to acknowledge your role in why things aren't exactly as you would like them to be. This subject never gets old, as we will revisit from time to time.

Stars fall from the sky every day without question. It doesn't matter how or why, your opportunity should be to make a wish on it and reap the benefits. This course of your life can illuminate your manifestation, Some view lemons as sour, what you do in your life can make sweet and beautiful things which turns that sour into lemonade or meringue, however you want to spin it.

Waiting around, gets you nowhere, you must take action. Time is never still. We aren't guaranteed tomorrow, yet we take it for granted that it's ours. We're all on borrowed time. A five year plan is good in the big scheme of things, if you live to see five more years. Today represents the 'right' here and the 'right' now. We must see manifestation. Think about the situation in Haiti a hundred thousand lives gone, no second chances, they weren't afforded opportunities to correct wrongs, but we can. It's a horrific reality, but it's true.

What have you sacrificed? You can no longer 'hide' behind excuses. God see's and knows all, don't fool yourself. Take you place in the world, to be the person that you were led to be, your call of duty is to take a stand to lead a group that you were destined to direct. Unfamiliar territory should become your new best friend. Accepting a pure existence is boring and ordinary, especially when you're born to be extraordinary. Breaking manifestation down to it's simplest terms, you came into this world crying, was it tears of joy or out of fear of what you've gotten yourself into?

What are you doing with your life?

I'm Just Saying..

Vanity Fair has always been a racist magazine. If the world were correct this vision by the talented Quincy Hussein LeNear could be a reality. I'm JUST Saying...

The King of Pop lives on with sales of his THIS IS IT home DVD moving over 1.2 million copies its first week in stores – SETTING a record for a music DVD release. The movie was even the #1 Blu-Ray movie release last week as well. Can't stop, Won't stop, that's how Michael always put it down...we miss you!!

I'm Just Saying..

R&B star Jill Scott was sued Wednesday by her longtime record label, which is accusing the multi-platinum songstress of skipping out halfway through a six-album contract and potentially owing millions of dollars in damages. As much as Jill enjoys grits, toast, and scramble eggs, she better get it together, because when you go up against a record label, few win. Good luck!!

Ever wonder why director Lee Daniels always attaches himself to such dark vehicles to direct? He directed Halle in "Monsters Ball" Cuba Gooding and Helen Mirren in "Shadow Boxer" and Mo'Nique in "Precious" makes me question his upbringing. Must have been a crazy life. Whenever I see him, looks like ole boy has has a few substances up in that system of his.

Sometimes he's black and sometimes he's white....The ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy is really about to be a wrap! General Colin Powell, who was one of the main opponents of allowing gays to serve openly in the military back in the ’90’s, publicly addressed the policy today saying he’s changed his mind.

OH HELL NAW....Cancer-stricken Elizabeth Edwards is telling pals that the former Senator John Edwards beat her during a horrific marriage-ending fight, “John lost his temper big-time,” revealed a close friend of Elizabeth. “She has the divorce papers drawn up, but she can amend them to charge John with domestic violence. “She’s holding that over his head right now – and he’s scared. Elizabeth is in control.” Elizabeth privately disclosed all the shocking details of the alleged attack, says a close friend. The friend spoke in detail about the terrifying incident – and passed a lie detector test regarding the shocking fight.

Hollywood is going to make a movie about Milli Vanilli, and I'm wondering why. Perhaps they can get Omarion and Robin Thicke to star in it, because both of them cats should stick to lip syncing. The Milli Vanilli story was gangsta, they took Hollywood's money, and beat them at their own game. And let's not forget how the made the Grammy committee look like complete IDIOTS, when they awarded them the Best New Artist Grammy!

Singer/Actress Brandy got cozy with rap superstar Flo Rida at Haze Nightclub at Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. “The two arrived together holding hands and having an intimate conversation,” Oh my Brandy trying to become relevant again, and NOT for selling Indian hair.

Fantasia was on Momma O's show yesterday, telling us what we already knew, that she was so broke that at one time she didn't have $20 to buy a pizza. When I look at her reality show, it makes me sick to my stomach, her family is trifling from her mother on down, to her dumb ass brother Tee Tee. If we're to continue to support her music, we are giving her family a pass to be unemployed and dead beat.

White people save the day least in their mind. CNN's Anderson Cooper has decided to adopt a Haitian baby. Awww .... UH NOT!!! Another kid will grow up confused, asking daddy why do I have two daddy's and why am I black AND you're not!! SMH .. I'm Just Saying..

Anyone who missed the BET Honors show, it airs again this Saturday Night!! Great performances and true black star power.

Country star Carrie Underwood will be taking on a role in the indie drama Soul Surfer based on Bethany Hamilton, the 13-year-old girl who lost her arm in a shark attack and went on to win professional championships. Carrie is the true country star, which can't be easy to watch little bambi Taylor Swift get all those accolades. Hang in there Carrie, I'm rooting for you to come out on top.

It's BLACK HISTORY MONTH...know your struggles, so you can make History...Frederick Douglass, Louis Armstrong, Patricia Harris, Martin Luther King, Coretta King, Reverend Dr. Joseph Lowery, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Jane Pittman, Ella Fitzgerald, Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Dr. Robert Scott are just a few of our greats, in which have played a part in our equality. BRAVO!!

This man paved the way for Michael Jackson to do his thing. We can never forget the heroes who allowed us to stand and be giants on their shoulders. Sammy Davis Jr. was a class act!! You must know your history and lineage to get to the future that is rightfully yours. Thanks for a job well done Sammy!!!

I'm Just Saying..

Looks like the King Of Pop's doctor is going to be tried for the death of the Superstar. I'm a little stomped about this one. Yes from a ethical stand point. He should have been smarter about the dosage that he provided to his patient/client. On the flip side, his employer was paying him a hefty 150.000 grand a month. I think greed clouded his judgement, but at the end of the day, he was following orders. So we'll see how this plays out. The worse part of all is that the Pop Legend is gone, and that's the saddest part of all.

Grammy winner Taylor Swift, won four Grammys, appears she's a little bit clumsy, she dropped on of her Grammys which fell to the floor and broke. My hunch is the one that fell to the floor was her 'Album Of The Year' Grammy....which I think speaks VOLUMES. Perhaps that Grammy was meant for someone else. Hmmm...I'm Just Saying.

After all the hype and the theatrics of Lady Gaga, weren't you a little disappointed in her Grammy Performance? I was impressed without any media hype, at the end of the night the best performance honors goes to Pink....who is proving that she has the extra stuff of a lasting superstar.

Say what you will, the Grammy tribute to Michael Jackson should have been SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better, and the true person who could have saluted him in the spirit in which he lived is Chris Brown. Hollywood it's time to forgive and forget.

Speaking of Michael Jackson, Hova Jay-Z thinks the next person in line for the King Of Pops throne is Usher....UH Hova dont' quit your day job. Usher's time is UP...and again the person who should be in line is Chris Brown, who dances circles around Usher AND the rest of the lot!!

R.I.P. Boston Legal actor Justin Mentell was killed this morning in a one-vehicle accident near Madison, Wisconsin. Mentell was pronounced dead at the scene after his Jeep went off the road into an embankment hitting two trees. He was only 27 years old.

.....Lets get it cracking...Sources suggest Madonna's boytoy Jesus Luz is finished with the Material Girl and now the two have parted ways. In an alleged not so amicable break-up, Jesus blamed their age difference and "overall lack of mutual interests" for the end of their relationship. Well NO kidding!!!

The Oscar nominations came out this morning, and all I will say is this Sandra Bullock is going to win for Best Actress for 'The Blind Side' and Monigue will win for Best Supporting Actress for 'Precious'. However I don't want her to win, it seems that win America will only award us trophies when we're doing somethine degrading. Guess it's easier to think that we're animals. UGH

It's OFFICIAL Beyonce' has a new little sister. Alexsandra Wright, the woman who filed a paternity suit against Mathew Knowles months ago, recently gave birth to a daughter. And word is DNA tests just came back - confirming that the child is, in fact, a Knowles. As we reported earlier, Beyonce's mom Tina OFFICIALLY filed to divorce Mathew in November. Mathew How YOU Dewin? LMAO You old dirty birdie.

A new version of 'We Are The World' was recorded yesterday, and it's a who's who guest list for Haitian relief. Again I will say, while I can appreciate the sentiment. No ONE make a video for Katrina, know things that HAPPENED in America. So basically the clear message is they care about Africans, just as long as they aren't from AMERICA!!

Sean Puffy Combs had a very human side to him last night @ The BET Honors show. He was presented his Award by his ex-Andre' Harrell. Combs spoke about what a great Mother he has. He said she instill great work ethic in him, and that she worked very hard to provide a good life for her two kids. Sometimes she would only get two hours of sleep, and he said that he promised her one day, she would never have to work again. What a great story.

I'm Just Saying..

So the Grammy Awards were last night, and Friday I predicted how it would play out...and I was only off by one. Every year African American artists dominate the music industry, and when the Award ceremonies roll around it goes a little something like that this: ALBUM OF THE YEAR - Taylor Swift/RECORD OF THE YEAR - Kings Of Leon/BEST NEW ARTIST - Zac Brown Band/RECORD OF THE YEAR - Single Ladies.......does it sould like a even playing field?
Beyonce' had a very big year, she was nominated for 10 grammys and won 6 which is exciting, but NOT really in the major categories. At some point we need to STAND up and declare 'bullshit' when we see it. Big UP's to Kanye West, who in spite of his mouth went home with ANOTHER Grammy!! One of those GOTCHA BITCH moments, because I know that it killed the Academy to give it to him. LOL

Pink's performance was the highlight of the evenings live performances, and the heartfelt tribute to Michael Jackson, which I felt wasn't long enough.

Mel Gibson had to find out the hard way that you shouldn't piss off the Jews. His return to movie making tanked miserably this weekend at the Box Office. His movie 'Edge of Darkness' only grossed 17.5

In white people crazy Rip Torn, decided he wanted to the sequel to "Set It Off"....Torn was busted after he allegedly broke into a bank in Connecticut, while carrying a loaded gun. He was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief.

Usher is supposedly dating singer Mya, which is completely false, she likes hoods boys, and so does he....hey I'm Just Saying.. You know what they say...any publicity is good publicity. Hopefully this helps his upcoming Raymond Vs Raymond CD.

Congrats goes out to a new African American Ms. America....Miss Virginia, Caressa Cameron, was crowned Miss America last night at the 2010 Miss America pageant.
