A-Town favorite Usher Raymond IV sends a message to all of his fans…he says he loves y’all! No for real…Usher was probably just sending a friendly shout out to an annoying pap who’d been tailing him all day for this one photo. Thumbs up Ursh! At least this proves you still have a lil testosterone left in ya! 😉
Check out these flicks of Rihanna at Saturday night’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. Stunning and fly as usual, Rihanna posed for pics as her rumored boy-toy Chris Brown avoided all contact and photo ops. They each walked the red orange carpet separately and sat apart from each other during the event.
Brown, who picked up the favorite male singer prize, kept his distance from the Barbados beauty as they both took separate turns waving to the throngs of screaming fans.
Chris even went as far as telling reporters, “We’re not in a relationship or anything,” before making his way inside…(Source)
I don’t understand 😕 …if they were “just friends,” from the get-go…why all the drama?
Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, Janet Jackson and more also participated in the annual show. See more flix from the event after the jump!
Chase Tatum was found dead 6 days ago of an accidental drug overdose. Tatum, pictured above in a promo pic from the film Who’s Your Caddy along with Faizon Love, Big Boi and Finesse Mitchell, formerly worked as a road manager and personal assistant for OutKast. Tatum was also well known as a professional wrestler, which apparently is where he developed the back problems which lead to his addiction to pain-killers. Tatum was 34.
Chase Tatum had been recovering from back surgery to repair a degenerative disc. His father said the former wrestler had been fighting a dependence to painkillers for years but had been planning to enter a rehabilitation center.
“He was in the process of getting his life back together,” Roy Tatum said Monday. “He was confident he was going to turn things around, to live a normal life again without those painkillers.” (Source)
It appears that singer Rihanna was not the first choice for the hit single “Umbrella.” Singer/songwriter Taio Cruz originally offered the song to Mary J. Blige and Britney Spears and both turned it down. 😕 Mary didn’t think the song was right for her (I agree) but Britney’s camp said merely that “it didn’t work for her.” I guess it was fate for Rihanna because “Umbrella” …Ella…Ella is considered to be her breakthrough hit!

Watch this video! Please…I beg of you! It’s not as crunk as the Punk of the South (no one is…he/she’s the Queen of this Bi*sh!)…but I promise it’ll put a smile on your face. Loyal reader Harlem Hussey sent me this video of a group of party-goers called “The Inner Circle” who composed a lil’ line dance to Mary J. Blige’s “Just Fine.” I wish it were brighter and clearer but from what I COULD see I’m really impressed! All them Kangols, silver pumps and french rolls were really doin tha dayum thang!
Don’t sleep…they even have written documentation of the steps for this dance and some dude even did an instructional video! 😯 I know you wanna learn…hell, you’ll be cuttin the rug at Big Momma’s birthday party before you know it.
