Monica and Brandy reunited last night during a “surprise” performance onstage. The pair performed “The Boy is Mine” for the first time together in 10 years and the crowd went wild. I actually enjoyed the lil bit of the performance I saw while fighting with the crowd to get flix. I’m still p*ssed about not getting my footage but I’m not even going to hate on the event or the event staff…let’s just say they were less than accommodating.
Soulja Boy Tellem made a special announcement online today stating that he is promising to portray a more positive image for the kids who look up to him:
What’s up, This ya boy Soulja Boy Tellem. I’ve got an announcement that I wanna make to all the parents out there whose kids are in love with me and all my fans who listen to my music. I just want to tell y’all that I apologize to all of the parents that have heard me say anything that they wouldn’t want their kids to hear coming from me.
Over the past few months, I’ve had a chance to meet a lot of my fans face-to-face and it made me realize that I’ve got a large fanbase of kids who look up to me. I realize now that I have a greater responsibility to the kids that want to be just like Soulja Boy. I need to set a positive example for them. I wouldn’t say a “role model” because I think that the parents or the guardians should be a kid’s main role mode but from now on, I’m gonna make sure that the kids who look up to me will get a positive image that the kids and the parents can trust.
Most celebrities try not to use the word “role model” but I don’t think I can help it though. When I meet parents and they tell me every city I go in ‘Soulja Boy my kids love you!’ I realize- you know – that I gotta do my thang…I gotta set a good example. I ain’t in no way perfect but I am clear that I gotta set a perfect example for all the kids that look up to me.
Wow…I feel like I’m being Punk’d right about now. Ashton…did you send me this email??
Young Jeezy and his entire CTE staff hit up the Walmart on Old Nat-L last weekend for Hittmenn DJ’s 6th Annual Toyz N Da Hood toy drive. Jeezy, along with V-103′s Greg Street, shut the toy section down as they competed against each other to see who could pile up the most toys in 60 seconds. Young Jeezy overwhelmingly defeated Greg Street and Street demanded a recount, stating that Jeezy cheated but it was all in fun. The toys will be distributed to underprivileged children. Soulja Boy will add to the shopping spree on Friday at the same location.

I’m sorry to report that Tip won’t be releasing his “Swing Ya Rag” due to protests of copyright infringement from Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
“We spoke to them. The video, it’s done. But I guess it’s one of those corporate things where they don’t wanna be associated or affiliated with a certain type of brand. A T.I. video ain’t the best look in their eyes right now. No harsh feelings.”
“At the end of the day, it’s gonna be a time when somebody is gonna have to sit at my table, and we gonna have the same type of conversations. It might be something as simple as just a party or endorsement. One thing is, the world goes around and comes back. I can take it when it’s my turn.” (Source)
Diddy recently announced his “I Am King” contest and is asking all you “KINGS” out there to submit a 90 second video describing your kingly attributes. He even gives an example of what you might say during those 90 seconds.
“I am a King cause I’m a child of God and my mother is a Queen. That’s the way I was raised to be a King. I am a very responsible person. I’m a leader. I’m confident…and I’m very respectful of others.”
Diddy’s gonna personally choose the 3 best kings from the video submissions and will fly them out to New York to be treated like a king. Uh-huh. Ummmm. Okay… Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about Kings and sh*t but I smell another reality show coming on.
