The hot sheek new Club Obsessions (4525 Glenwood Rd. Atlanta, GA) was off the hook for their grand opening last week. Don’t sleep on the eastside! Believe me this is the new party spot in the ATL. Trina of Slip n Slide Records along with DJ Greg Street of V-103 put it down and had the crowd swagging. Also spotted in the crowd was model/rapper Angel Lola Luv. Check out a few flix below. It’s how we do it in the “A”!!
A very pregnant Neffe and her gay BFF Dariel were spotted in the Atlanta airport a few weeks ago. Dariel is good for youtubing all of their exploits and honestly, it’s way better than television! So get your Keyshia Cole’s big sis right here right now. I’ve got 3 clips for your ghetto viewing pleasure.
Neffe and Dariel strut through the Atlanta airport chopping it up with fans and clowning for the camera in the first clip and in the 2nd clip Neffe shows how good she is at scratching lottery tickets. In the 3rd and final video, Neffe speaks candidly about her new book, “My Happiness Is My Sanity” and shares some secrets from her past.
The last video really should have been the main topic of this post, but the other two were just so dayum cute! Anyway, get your ghetto reality fix for the day below:
Chris Brown was joined on the set of an upcoming video shoot with a few “A” town favorites, Monica, Keri Hilson and super producer Polow Da Don. Some say that this was a Keri Hilson shoot, but my sources tell me that this was the shoot for the hot new track I shot y’all last week (Ester Dean’s “Drop It Low” ft. Chris Brown). I dunno who’s right or who’s wrong, but I heard they’re keeping us guessing cause Polow doesn’t want Ester’s image out there yet. Whatever the reasons behind his decision, he’s dead “A”zz serious about it. Dontcha think that’s a bit strange? Even I can’t find a pic of that heffa no dayum where… Wassup with that Polow?
Chris, Polow, Melody Thornton, Omarion
Keri’s looking great as usual. She’s scheduled to be at the grand opening of Carol’s Daughter in Lenox Square Mall Sunday August 23rd at 12 pm. Y’all need to check that out.
Word on the street is that Nelly & Ashanti have parted ways:
A source close to the couple told the New York Daily News that they two split up because she was ready to get married, but he wasn’t willing to put a ring on it. Reportedly he’s been having a good time as a single man, and he’s recently been seen in Las Vegas and Miami with video vixen Jessica Rabbit.
So far, neither Nelly nor Ashanti have said anything about the alleged split. (source)
I dunno how true this is, but it has been quite some time since we’ve seen the two actually kickin it as a couple. Nelly was spotted recently chilling at Chris Brown’s skate party alongside Polow Da Don and a ton of groupies:
Did y’all even pay attention to the words of Big Rube’s “Love’s Deceit” poem while you were drooling over T.I. (or Lauren London)? Peep game:
Pleasure turns to the pain of lessons learned from the strain of the questions burned in my brain about whether love is humane in its touch
These thoughts are like salmon swimming upstream in the tears of your deceit
Fighting a current hurt that kills more than is created by the chaos of our intertwined emotions
Chaotic because the anchor of Eros’ arrow has been plucked from the vessel of my undying infatuation
Separation not as simple as the distance between us
My mind no longer possessed by the demons that had been the overseers of my enslavement to your lies
The seeds of these lies rooted so deeply they’ve cracked the foundation of what we once shared
Allowing the faith in us I had sealed inside to gush out like a river
Ripping the image of our future together from my thoughts as violently and as brutally as if it were a child being taken from its mothers arms
I’m left surrounded in darkness but I refuse to be swallowed by it
My loneliness like night air; invisible to the eye obvious to the touch, in its cold uncomfortable ness
Yet If I could do all over again I’d do it in the same skin I’m in
To lay down and let love die, just stay down and let love lie
No, no, no, no, not I
I’ll stay around and let love fly
Even though I’ve seen its darkest form; deceit
Nothing else could tastes this warm or feel this sweet
Tameka Foster Glover Raymond’s “Pretty For A Black Girl” Blog Post caught mad flack the moment it was spotted. Sad thing is, in what appeared to be a sincere effort on TFGR’s part to garner sympathy during this trying time, may have actually been nothing more than a good cut & paste job.
Friend in my head, Freshalina, sent over Jawn Murray’s revelation that Tameka has been accused of stealing her idea from a published book entitled…”Pretty For A Black Girl.”
The book’s author, Aisha Curry, hit up Black Voices to shed some light on how she feels her work may have been ganked and used by TFGR without consent:
My heart sank into my stomach. All the hard work, all the sleepless nights I had endured was playing back in my head as I read this article written by a woman I didn’t even know,” Curry told BV Buzz.
“Why did I feel so connected to this article? Suddenly, it came to me. It was my work! It was my work, my voice, but in her words. I was frozen. Tears began rolling down my face as I read line after line after line. I couldn’t believe it. The idea that someone could gain notoriety from an issue that I first brought to the forefront is mindboggling. People were praising her for tackling an issue that had never been exposed. Hello?!? I wrote the book on it and started it years ago. The only difference between her article and my book is she used ‘dark-skinned’ and I used ‘Black.'”
