Word on the street is that André Benjamin’s Benjamin Bixby clothing line isn’t selling very well, but that may soon change after it’s creator’s current nomination.

Initially, I’d decided I was gonna give Alexis a chance. I know sometimes my love for Shaq gets in the way of me being impartial and plus she’s still a woman and her side should be heard…but what I determined from wasting 10 minutes of my life listening to the interview is that this chick is a mess and need therapy. She also seems to have aspirations of being another Superhead. When asked about her “Shaq” tatt, the tattoo she’s sporting that oddly resembles Shaq’s Superman tatt, Mary Jane stated Continue Reading…
Cee-Lo Green aka (Thomas Calloway) will be partnering with Coca-Cola in their new ad campaign entitled “Happiness.” The campaign utilizes the partnership between Coca-Cola and Warner Music as other Warner artists including Travis McCoy and Janelle Monae will be joining Cee-Lo in the campaign.
Can’t wait to see what creative marketing Coke comes up with! I see Cee-Lo sitting on the back of a bus sanging the Coca-Cola song ala Tyrese. Hmmmm? Maybe they’ll take my suggestion, who knows. In the meantime, check out a lil Friday Flashback from the Good Die Mostly over Bullsh*t (aka Goodie MoB) below:
You may remember her from MTV’s Sweet 16 when she and her dad argued over what vehicle was appropriate for a 16 year old, or perhaps you’ve actually seen her chilling around the “A”…whatever the case, Carlysia Levert (now 18) is carrying her father’s legacy of vocals and is destined for stardom.
