Ludacris did an interview lately where he was asked if he’d ever made it on Oprah. Duh! Yeah! We all know about the Oprah Winfrey fall out! Don’t we?? In case you forgot…Ludacris appeared on Oprah way back in 2005 with the cast of CRASH. Luda appeared as a cast member but Ms. Winfrey didn’t like the fact that he cussed and used the word “nigga” in his rhymes. At the time, Oprah had a policy of not promoting rap or rappers on her show, but since then has had both Diddy and Kanye posted up on the couch. Luda explains the issue and states that they’ve made peace, but he has yet to be invited back to the show.
On a lighter note…Luda, Nelly and Snoop tore down the stage at the TRL finale. Check out the performance: Continue Reading…

Seventeen Magazine named Beyonce 2008 Style Star Of The Year and the star attended the unveiling of Dec08/Jan09 cover. In the issue, she talks about her new double-album, I Am…Sasha Fierce, her marriage to Jay-Z, and explains how SHE is her worst competitor:
On finally settling down with Jay-Z: “I was 18 when we first met, 19 when we first started dating. There was no rush — no one expected me to run off and get married. I really don’t believe that you will love the same thing when you’re 20 as you do at 30. So that was my rule: Before the age of 25, I would never get married. I feel like you have to get to know yourself, know what you want, spend some time by yourself, and be proud of who you are before you can share that with someone else.”
On competion from other artists: “I feel like I’m my competition. I don’t try to compete with other people. I just try to better myself. I go and watch everything that I’ve done. I have my YouTube days, when I watch every performance, and I listen to my music, and I watch my videos to figure out what I need to do, what I need to fix, and how to become a better singer.

I dunno Bey…You may need to check a few other YouTube performances before you rule anyone out:
“More testimony is expected today in a murder trial that will bring a big name in music back to Cincinnati. Rap artist T.I. is expected to testify on Friday about what happened the night his personal assistant died. 35-year-old Hosea Thomas is accused of killing Philant Johnson in May of 2006. The incident apparently started with a fight at a Roselawn club where T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, performed.”

To keep yall in the loop or the ‘know’ … Im just being STILL … I have a Radio Agent in Seattle, WAS… So Im just waiting for him to do what he does … Still doing Comedy …been in and out of town ..and just really ‘Being Still’ to see what the LORD has for me next. What Ive noticed in this time of clarity is that GOD is not like man …if he says something …its done …I often laugh at people who keep praying about the same thing …to me its almost like you dont believe The LORD heard you the first time (and now youre bothering him) …Im being silly but you know what I mean.
What Ive learned is that his Promise is HIS Promise …its no one elses…. (More)
