Christoper “Ludacris” Bridges was spotted at the Highline Ballroom in NYC (April 4), where he hosted the Magnum Live Large Project’s freestyle contest, in a search to find the next best MC.
Ludacris is all about rap–and wrapping it up, for as you know he’s been the spokesperson for Magnum Condoms for almost a year now.
As for as his involvement with the Magnum Live Project, Luda combines spreading safe sex awareness with assisting aspiring artists.
It’s a chance for aspiring artists to get their music out there and be heard and win $5,000 and a chance to perform on stage at Spring Fest.
For a long time, I’ve been spreading the awareness about HIV and AIDS and getting people to understand how important it is to be safe. I can also relate because I remember being an aspiring artist and wishing I had opportunities like the one that’s being given right now.
Luda’s currently working on his new album “Ludaversal” and will also be appearing in a new flick, Fast and Furious 5.

The line between hip-hop and fashion is getting more and more obscure as Nicki Minaj covers Elle magazine’s music issue.
She is joined by fellow music stars Gwen Stefani, Robyn, and the legendary Aretha Franklin, who each will be honored with their own cover of the mag.
Nicki toned down her famously outlandish outfits and wigs for the shoot and opts for a more conservative (for her) look.
In her interview, Nicki also reveals that she has never had any desire to be ‘Bonnie’ to a male rapper’s ‘Clyde.’ Ms. Minaj had bigger aspirations than that.
“I always wanted to play with the boys,” Minaj says. “I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character – a superhero.”

Wendy Williams covers the May 2011 issue of Essence Magazine, the magazine’s first-ever “Girlfriends Issue,” dedicated to female friendships.
I’m also proud to not that the duel cover as well as Wendy’s photo spread for the article, was shot by Atlanta’s own Derek Blanks!
Williams talks to ESSENCE about friendship, family and the driving force behind the talk show queen’s appeal.
I know I make some people cringe.
But I also know my willingness to expose myself, warts and all, is part of the reason people are drawn to me. With me, what you see is what you get…
On TV (and as well as in her radio past), Wendy is known for saying things no one else will (remember when Wendy kicked Tameka Foster (Glover Raymond) out of her studio?). She even recently went as far as to post photos of her bunion ridden feet online!!
But when the spotlight goes off Wendy is a whole ‘nother person! She explains it all in the issue, which hits stands April 13th.
And in case you were wondering about Wendy’s stint with Dancing with the stars, click HERE to watch her graceful exit during the eliminations last night.

So errr ummm…. yeah. There’s this lady on the streets of Atlanta who says that she’s the “A”‘s oldest stripper.
The gray haired granny is more geriatric than bootylicious but claims, “I’m 70 but people think I’m 25!”
She also says she used to work at the Blue Flame and that “they be making it SNOW not rain baby”…
[Sidebar: I’m not sure exactly what that means, but my strip club lingo is a bit rusty.]
Spyda may be 70 but she’s definitely not down for the count! The only thing missing in that parking lot was a stripper pole.

With Spring revving up into high gear and the pollen flowing freely in the Atlanta air, just about everyone is sniffling and sneezing but who knew blowing your nose could get you locked down?!?
I’m almost certain Alfred Murphy didn’t. Murphy’s runny nose is the cause of him sitting in jail right now on a slew of charges.
Murphy was arrested yesterday at an Atlanta public rail station after using a few “government issued” paper towels to blow his nose.
That act and the actions that followed got Murphy a one way ticket to Fulton County Jail.
Murphy, suffering from a runny nose, took paper towels from a maintenance cart at the Ashby Street MARTA (Metro Atlanta Transit Authority) station…. MARTA police got involved and things spiraled way out of control! Continue Reading…
