My personal highlight of the evening for the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was Kanye Omari West’s diva meltdown during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech. For some of you, this is probably completely random, but since there was a “leaked” list earlier which listed Beyonce as the winner of this award, some are speculating that MTV may have changed a few of the winners to avoid the embarrassment of having a mole amongst them and of course to save the surprise factor of the popular awards show.
Just as Taylor began telling MTV viewers how much winning best female video meant to her, Kanye West ripped the microphone from her grasp and gave an outraged shout out to Beyonce.
“Taylor, I’m really happy for you. I’ll let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time! One of the best videos of all time!”
Cameras cut to Beyonce, who sat in the audience with jaw dropped in disbelief:
Meanwhile, Taylor was literally speechless as Kanye gave her the microphone back and marched off stage:

This speculation has led me personally to believe that Kanye’s outburst was merely his reaction to truth of the matter. Beyonce was robbed. I think MTV figured she’d had enough over the years and could take the fall this time. Just an observation.
The Goodie Mob is holding a reunion show September 19th at the Masquerade. I posted the first 2 of the 4 TV spots announcing the show last week which featured Big Gipp and Khujo Goodie. Now the 3nd drop has been released which features T-Mo discussing what the reunion means to him. Stay tuned for the remaining spot featuring Cee-lo.
Check out Goodie Mob’s Reunion commercial (Part 3) ft. T-Mo Goodie below:
I spotted Alphonso Ribeiro a few days ago during the Atlanta screening of “Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself.” Ribeiro, best known for his antics as Carlton Banks alongside Will Smith on The Fresh Prince of Bel Aire, has been in television since he was knee high to a grasshopper. He’s even starred alongside the Jackson’s during their Pepsi commercial days:
I got a chance to catch up with Alphonso to find out what he’s been up to lately. As you know, Alphonso also starred alongside LL Cool J and Maia Campbell on “In the House” so of course the major question on my mind was if he’d seen that infamous Maia Campbell video. Alphonso graciously answered and even shed some light on his Tyler Perry connection: Continue Reading…
Keyshia Cole’s big sister Neffe gave birth to a baby girl yesterday. Neffeteria Pugh and her fiance Soullow welcomed their darling little princess into the world and her BFF/Stylist Dariel quickly spread the word via twitter. Neffe is said to have gone into labor around 2 a.m. when she realized that her contractions were about four minutes apart, but her water wasn’t broken at that time. Neffe, co-star of BET’s Frankie & Neffe show, wanted to deliver her little girl by cesarean section, however mama Frankie encouraged her to go with natural childbirth. The healthy baby girl was finally delivered at 5:05pm at 5 pounds 7 ounces and 17.5 inches. Neffe’s fiancé Soullow was by her side at the hospital along with with her mother, sister and several other family members. Continue Reading…
The entire case of The Real Housewives of Atlanta hit up the Ellen Degeneres show season premiere and all I can say is DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA. Ellen seemed to have brought out the worst of the group live on stage. Kandi Burruss held her own as a RHOA freshman, while Sheree Whitfield, Lisa Wu-Hartwell and NeNe Leakes brought their craziness to daytime television. Kim Zolciak is clearly the most hated this season as she’s still going at it with most of the crew. I love it!
Ellen asks about the wig-pulling episode that aired last month betweenKim and Sheree and it was on & poppin!
“Kim’s a habitual liar,” Sheree explained. “She was saying things personally against me like I bounced checks.”
“She did,” Kim said.
Sheree: “Can you provide a bounced check?”
Kim goes for the playground-level argument tactics: she shifts to a new topic, followed by a reiteration of the original accusation: “Who pulls someone hair? Real classy — at 40… I don’t care if you bounce checks all day long. Just don’t do it to people I hook you up with!”
“Are you kidding me?” Sheree said. “I shop at three places in Atlanta…”
“How do you know she bounces checks?” Ellen said.
“She wore the dress Valentino to the premiere party then returned it,” she said. “You bounced a check to them, then they called me.”
“But that’s not my business,” Kim said. No. It’s all our business, isn’t it?
“Grow up!” Kim said, getting back to the wig pulling (or “shifting,” as Sheree dubbed it). “You’re 40 and a mother!”
Ellen looks in the camera with a gleeful look as if she just won $1 million dollars. Cat fight!
