Nas performed dayum near his entire catalog at Thursday night’s BMI Unsigned Artists Showcase. In the clips that I’ve posted below, he’s performing “Black President” “I Want to Talk To” and “My President is Black” as well as “Street Dreams” & “If I Ruled the World”. His performance was amazing but my videos are lacking. Blame that loud “A”zz speaker I was standing next to… 😆
I just spotted this video of Kandi Burress and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle discussing what it would be like to travel into the future and had to post it. In the vid, Tiny says she would love take a secret peek into the future grown lives of her children. Speaking about her daughter having grandkids and visualizing King as a superstar like his daddy. Kandi desires to visit the past for a visit with her brother who passed a year before Xscape got a deal.
Model turnt Actress turnt television host, Tyra Banks is due in court this week to testify against a Georgia man accused of following and harrassing her from Los Angeles to NYC. Banks, photographed above during the “Broadcasting Reality: Show Me The Money!” Luncheon is scheduled to testify in a Manhattan courtroom where Brady Green goes on trial on charges of stalking her.
Green, a resident of Dublin, Ga., is accused of following Banks from coast to coast since January of last year. He was arrested in a McDonald’s near the Manhattan building where “The Tyra Banks Show” is taped after he attempted to see Tyra on March 18, 2008.
According to the criminal complaint filed against Green, he had been stalking Banks since January of the 2008 and had attempted to contact Banks by appearing at both her Los Angeles and NYC studios, making repeated phone calls and sending multiple letters to her workplace and even having flowers delivered to the runway star. At the time of his arrest, he was found carrying a large duffel bag full of magazine clips of the model, along with notes he had written himself that documented several of his attempts to contact Banks.
Banks told the Manhattan District Attorney’s office she was “in fear of physical injury, serious injury or death” as a result of Green’s actions. Shortly after the incident, she was granted a restraining order against him. Green, 38, has pleaded not guilty to stalking, harassment and criminal trespass and faces up to 90 days in jail if convicted by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge James Burke, who is hearing the case without a jury.

At the end yesterday’s episode of Oprah, the talk show host addressed two pressing questions from all of her Twitter People…aka “Tweeple.” First was “Am I tweeting myself or is my assistant writing for me?” and the second was “Am I wearing a weave? Everybody’s like, ‘Oprah, we love your weave.’
She clarified that she is in fact, in charge of her own twitter by stating, “I tweet myself, that’s why you haven’t seen that many tweets. I can’t tweet all day, okay?” Then addressed the weave question via twitter (above) and also on the air with “This is not a weave, this is my hair!”
I always say that a hit dog will hollar, but hey, she may be telling the truth. I just don’t understand what all the hoopla is about if she is. Anywhoo, check out the photo she displayed on air of herself pre-makeup with her hair unstyled below: *Warning* It ain’t pretty!
