Alex Gidewon’s The Gidewon Foundation and T.I.’s K.I.N.G. Foundation joined forces to bring a bit of holiday cheer to 300+ underpriviledged kids from the Atlanta area. The 4th Annual Christmas Holiday For Kids event was held at the Cascade Skating rink yesterday and all were treated to a day of celebration which included skating, games, music, food, clothes, and toy giveaways.
“With the state of the economy, I’m glad I’m able to continue in my efforts with providing a Christmas experience for children that would not have one otherwise. It really means a lot to me to be able to put a smile on a child’s face,” states Gidewon.
Y’all dragged me off of my Christmast vacaction with this one! I’ve received emails, phone calls and knocks on my front door of people asking me wassup with Monica. Apparently word on the street is that Monica and her boo Rocko have been living in wedded bliss for some time now and haven’t told anyone…*cough* “Anyone” meaning me! Monica, the mother of two of the cutest kids I know, and her perpetual fiance Rodney Ramone Hill, Jr., aka Rocko Da Don. are rumored to have tied the knot.
Super producer Bryan-Michael Cox let the cat out of the bag during a recent interview:
Question: Back in the day Brandy and Monica were sort of the touted R&B/Pop queens, much like you have let’s say Rihanna and Beyonce today. Working with Monica, who now has children and a family life, was the experience of producing for her new album a challenge?
Bryan Michael Cox: Monica, she’s a mother, a WIFE and all of that right now and she’s a young woman. She was really open. She didn’t want to make a “Oh I’m married and I have to do this” type of album. She still wanted to make a young and fly album. (Source)
Monica herself has also been known to call Rocko her hubby and indicated that they were married in an interview earlier this year. I, for one, am happy for the couple but disappointed that I didn’t receive my INVITE. Wassup with that MO?? 😕
Gorilla Zoe didn’t waste anytime releasing the video for “Lost”. The video (above) is described as a conceptual view of Zoe “losing it” throughout the “A”. Side note: The video is missing Lil Wayne’s portion…*scratching head* …Don’t ask…I dunno why. 😕
I kinda feel like I’m losing it today being as though I’ve hit up 3 malls in the course of 4 hours! Dontcha just love gift giving…?

Ludacris also did a brief interview recently where he discussed how he started in the music business. He also addressed the historic meaning of this presidency where he notes that we as a people have “no more excuses” not to succeed. None…Zero…Zip…Nada! Video below: Continue Reading…
