Atlanta newstation WSB-TV obtained video footage of Andre 3000’s speeding arrest last month. The video shows Dre’s 1997 Porsche Carrera pulling over on the highway and his subsequent arrest by a Henry County officer. He was stopped for driving 109mph (44 miles over the speed limit) down interstate 75 and was arrested due to his excessive speed.
Dre´explained to the officer that he was in a hurry because he had to get to a friend’s birthday party. He has since paid a $1200 fine and moved on with his life. I just hope he’s speeding right now into the studio with Big Boi for that new Outkast project…
You may have already spotted the billboards all around town that features a young, smiling Usher Raymond. I even saw one myself last night as I was rolling down Peachtree Street and posted a twit-pic:
“Billboard says “Be Iconic” and has Usher’s baby pic begreatamerica.org/usher Cute! ” April 29th 8:44pm
Well today the R&B superstar officially unveiled the “Be Iconic” billboards as part of the Boy’s & Girls Club’s “Be Great” campaign:
Five-time Grammy award winner, philanthropist and Boys & Girls Club alumnus Usher today unveiled a new billboard featuring his childhood photo as part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s” BE GREAT” campaign. Usher’s theme – BE ICONIC – ties to his profile as an award-winning, multi-platinum musical icon and a positive role model. He attended the Boys & Girls Club of Chattanooga as a young boy. Usher joins the likes of Denzel Washington, Shaquille O’Neal, Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Muhammad Ali as part of BGCA’s new advocacy campaign, featuring successful Boys & Girls Club kids and encouraging every American to help young people BE GREAT.
Usher was joined at the ceremony by his mother/manager, Jonnetta Patton, Mark Lazarus (Chairman of the Marketing Committee for BGCA, and President, Media and Marketing for Career Sports & Entertainment), Roxanne Spillett (President and CEO, BGCA) and kids from BGCs and Usher’s New Look Foundation. and nope…there was no sign of Tameka.
What in the Damian Omen II Exorcist hell is going on in Cobb County? *sigh* I dunno what ole girl did or who she did it to…but one thing I know for sure is that the officer who took this shot is a got-dayum master photographer! This is one mugshot that seems to capture this suspects every evil thought and gives us insight into the depths of her soul. Shiiiiiiid….if looks could kill, we’d all be making funeral arrangements right now! I wonder if she practiced that in the mirror?
I am a complete Sex and the City Stan and Sarah Jessica Parker is my favorite person in the whole wide world. Well…not actually my favorite favorite…(wassup Twan!) but I do love me some Sex and the City. Anywhoo, the fashionable actress and her hubby, Matthew Broderick, were spotted a few days ago at the Tribeca Film Festival. The two have also released word that they are expecting twins! I know…I know. You’re probably wondering where she’s hiding her baby bump. Right? Well Sarah and Matthew have decided to utilize the services of a surrogate mother, so no bumps are necessary:
The couple is “overjoyed” to be expecting two healthy baby girls later this summer, a rep for the couple said in a statement to E! News. Congrats to the happy couple!!!
The 44-year-old Sex and the City star and Matthew, 47, also have son James Wilkie, 6. A friend of the couple tells EW that the couple has been trying to have more kids for years and this was the “best alternative for expanding their family.” (Source)
Law #7 of the The 48 Laws of Power states “Get others to do the work for you but always take the credit…” I ain’t mad at her. Not mad at all.
