Isn’t it obvious why I decided to post “Goodies” as todays flashback? It isn’t? OK I’ll explain: I did it because I want you guys to reminisce about way back when…to a time when y’all used to actually like Ciara so that you can go cop that album. 😕
Usher got his own post so I guess it’s only fair that Tameka gets some shine today too. A friend of mine has a great blog that reveals her secrets to success and longevity in Atlanta’s music scene. She’s seen it all and has shared some of the most outrageous stories of her experiences coupled with what she’s learned from them. One of my favorites is a post she wrote about an experience she had working with Mrs. Usher:
That’s right…Tameka Foster, Glover, Raymond once made me cry on the set of a video for a short lived group called the ATL. We were already 3 hours behind and she was not allowing the group to get dressed because…hummm…her creative vision AS A WARDROBE STYLIST was being compromised! I believe that was the line she gave me! I was the second assistant director and my SOLE job for the day was to the get the Artists’ and the models to set, and of course they couldn’t get there… if they didn’t have their clothes on! I begged and pleaded with Tameka which seemed to only fuel her fire.
My twitter friend Ms. Stylistic tried to get me to watch this yesterday but I saw the title and promptly refused. There is no way I could possibly watch a video called “Turn My Fag On” [an obvious spoof to SoujaBoy Tellem’s “Turn my Swag On”] and get any work done at all…but then I saw it posted over at Fresh’s house I was perusing for links and I couldn’t resist pressing play.
“Hop up out the bed, turn my fag on…took a look in the mirror said ‘what’s tea’…eowwwww. How U Dewin” Yeah!”
*sigh* All I know is…y’all need to come get Tyler Perry’s lil brother before he hurt himself!
‘Tis the season. It’s getting hot and several celebs are getting rid of that extra baggage just in time for summer. Usher Raymond #4 and #5 were spotted on the beach in Malibu a few days ago minus Mommy Tameka, who was still here in the “A”…chillin. Am I the only one who noticed that Mr. Raymond hasn’t been rocking his signature custom designed wedding band? Hmmmm? *scratching head* Could there be trouble in paradise? Sources say Usher and Tameka have been living separate lives for quite some time now and it’s possible that he’s been spending daddy time with lil Cinco in preparation for joint custody arrangements. But you ain’t heard that from me…
As is the norm, several A-town celebs hit up Philip’s Arena Wednesday night for game 5 of the Hawks v. Miami playoff series. T.I., Polow Da Don, Jeezy and more were spotted chillin in the “good seats” as the Hawks walked away with a 106-91 win. Check out a few courtside photos from the game:

Heyyyyy Mr. Jenkins!! *drooling*
Polow flashed his brand new $20,000 diamond ring as he posed with Teyana Taylor.
DJ Bishop from Zone 4’s Hittmen DJ’s sent over a video from their suite at the game. In it, Polow’s flossin his new jewelry and countin the stones. Hmmph. I was NOT phased by Mr. Jones’ blatent display of his wealth, I am, however, amazed by the lack of female presence in that suite! Wassup with that? Y’all didn’t even callllll meeeee!!! 😕
