When fans saw the images of Chris Brown and Usher all sweaty and hugged up in Jamaica, it seemed like a match made in heaven. Chris Brown seemed to have befriended an R&B powerhouse who finally had his back and he was on the fast track to a come-back after that messy Rihanna situation.
Producer Bryan Michael Cox even revealed that Chris would be joining Ursh on tour, but unfortunately B-Cox jumped the gun on that announcement because it wasn’t meant to be.
Usher hasn’t commented but anyone with sense could see that he decided his brand was a bit too pristine to associate with a convicted woman beater… and rightfully so. Why risk the fallout?
Chris recently spoke to Hot97’s Angie Martinez to “clear the air” about the dissipated tour plans and in standard C-Breezy fashion, managed to sh*t on Usher in the process.
Check out what Chris has to say about the Usher/Chris Brown tour that never was (or will be) and why he can count the number of his “industry friends” on one hand… Continue Reading…
NeNe Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been facing tough criticism regarding her decision to get a lil nip/tick here and there. The loud mouthed diva was even confronted by plastic surgery veteran Wendy Williams when she appeared on The Wendy Williams show earlier this week!

NeNe took offense recently and when she was asked by BET what the deal was on her new nose, she side-stepped the issue just like Bishop Eddie Long. While NeNe didn’t flat out deny getting her face stitched up, she basically gave the thumbs up to anyone who chose to enhance their appearance with surgery.
I’ve never said I had a nose job. I’ve never, anywhere, come out and said I’ve had a nose job. I’ve just been told that I’ve had one. [Laughs] I’m doing some things and everybody should just tune in to the show to see what I’ve had done. I know there’s been a lot of rumors saying I’ve done this and that – a lot of rumors are very false. What I have to say about plastic surgery is there’s nothing that has ever happened to me in my life that would make me do anything to myself because I love Nene. Whatever I do would just be for me, it wouldn’t be for anybody else. Nothing happened in my childhood. Anybody that wants to have plastic surgery and they can afford it – they should go out and get it.
I know, it’s kind of funny in the African-American community. But, there are a lot of African-American women that have had things done. We want to be like anybody else. If you care about yourself – you want to tune up something here or there – it’s falling. Pick it up! (Source)

A billboard near highway I75/85 in Atlanta reads, “Love Like Him, Live Like Him, Lead Like Him” The motto refers to Jesus Christ, but the smiling face next to it is that of Bishop Eddie Long in one of his signature tight shirts.
Members of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church take the billboard (and their “Bishop”) very seriously but others feel that in light of Bishop Eddie Long’s Sex Scandal, the billboard and it’s subliminal message is a bit much… Continue Reading…
Mike Epps (pictured above with his wife Michelle) hosted the 2010 BET Hip-Hop awards last weekend at the Atlanta Civic Center. The awards show went off without no major catastrophes… well, besides that Waka Flocka situation, but I’ll tell you about that later.
First things first…. the “black” carpet was covered with all of the hometown favs. From Waka Flocka Flame to Gucci Mane to B.o.B. and Big Boi. It was almost like just another day at Greenbriar Mall…
Waka Flocka played with his jewels…

Mary J. Blige brought her “Music Saved My Life” tour to Atlanta last Saturday at Chastain Park Amphitheater. New artist Miguel, joined by Jazmine Sullivan (who I’ve referred to on many occasions as “Mini MJB”) warmed up the crowd and prepared them for Mary’s show:

Usher Raymond IV was spotted at Keep A Child Alive’s 7th annual Black Ball at Hammerstein Ballroom last night (September 30, 2010) in New York City looking like he just jumped out of Ne-Yo’s closet. Are those shoulder pads? *sigh*
Alicia is even givin Ursh the *side-eye*…
What the hell is going on with this outfit? The crop pants combined with those shoulder pads all get two-snaps up in z-formation. Somebody’s been “experimenting” a lil too much on the road.
