Actress Gabourey Sidibe covers the January/February 2010 edition of V Magazine. The “Precious” star looks amazing in the black & white shots and shares the cover of they’re SIZE issue with a teeny tina Dakota Fanning. You may cock an eyebrow at her weight, but Gabby could care less what you think and admits to loving herself just the way she is:
“I love the way I look. I’m never going to be a size two. I’m just not structured in that way. I am not worried about Hollywood trying to change me. They haven’t changed me yet — for now people seem to like me as I am.”
I love her confidence!

Former boxing champ Mike Tyson was spotted with his wife Lakiha Spicer out shopping in Milan, Italy. The two shopped dropped mad dough and then found a moment to swap spit for the papps:
Why are we being subjected to this bullsh*t? *says the Asian lady in the background*
Now I don’t know what Mike’s financial situation is at this time, but I almost titled this post, “How to go broke in 30 days”. I guess the Oprah Effect worked on his pockets BIG TIME after his tearful appearance!

Antwan “Big Boi” Patton recently announced that his Big Kidz Foundation, an Atlanta youth organization aimed at “positively affecting literacy, mathematics, public speaking, and artistic inclination through use of humanities,” plans to open a new chapter in Savannah, Georgia.
It is my hope that the children in these undeserved communities officially become part of the national conversation that we have been left out of for years. The efforts within this program will not only stress education, but will stress exposure to culture.
Big visited Savannah High School last week while he was in the city filming a few new videos. He spoke with the students there and shared memories of his childhood:
I was born in Savannah and grew up here, I remember growing up and not knowing there were a lot of things for our youth and ever since then I’ve been speaking to them and I think that Big Kidz will get them prepared as well.”
I’m so proud of Twan! Always doing good in the hood!! Big Boi’s long-awaited solo album ‘Sir Luscious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty’ will be in stores on March 23.

Shawty Lo’s on the grind! Not only has he just finished shooting his second video this YEAR but he’s been working overtime putting the finishing touches on his sophmore album I Am Carlos.
Lo, who shot the video for Atlanta, GA a few weeks ago with The Dream and Ludacris (CLICK HERE if you missed it), shot the video for his single WTF last night with Lil Wayne, Rocko and a slew of power players. Both videos were directed by Mr. Boomtown.
The video was shot in plain view on Peter St. in Atlanta and drew a ton of attention. For those of you who don’t know, Peter Street is one of the hot spots in ATL with several key restaurants and bars.
