Dayum JD…stop yer yellin! *sigh* I got this video in my inbox 5 times so obviously Jermaine Dupri wants y’all to know something. He’s pissed! 😯 JD says that Billboard ain’t right…how they gonna put Usher as an “alternate” cover? “The one on the front is bought and Usher’s is for free…from the label.” Hmmmm….maybe Usher’s star is dimming. JD, you ever though of that? One hot single ain’t gonna fix what’s broke. Love or not…Tameka has put that boys career to bed. It’s a shame ain’t it? Let’s hope that the entire album is on FIRE cause he’s gotta come back swangin to get his respect back. I’m rootin for you Ursh!

FRESH off his split from Star Jones, Al Reynolds is back on the town. He hit club Home late last week with a new buxom lady friend, where he was drink ing and dancing till the wee hours. “He was at the bar with her. She was a pretty big girl,” said a cocktail waitress at the club. “They were dancing to hip-hop and bobbing their heads. He had on a white button-down [shirt], open with a diamond necklace hanging out. And he was drinking all night with his pinky in the air.” Also there was Sean Combs, who, oddly, sat in a corner reading a book. (Source)
The jokes write themselves. I promise you…I had nothing to do with this. 😕
This video is brought to you by the Southwest Dekalb High School Drum Majors….“Making fun of Bus Ridin hoes since 1988…” Those creative youngsters got together and made a song and a video making fun of people who ride the bus. I’ve never been much of a bus rider myself, but hey…I don’t knock public transportation. Unlike my last boyfriend…it’s always there for me if I need it. 😕
I know y’all thought I was about to clown the bipolar MARTA girl, but umma leave that up to Necole Bitchie today.
Ne-yo held his annual Mother’s Day Brunch for 50 single and foster mothers from the metro Atlanta area Sunday at the Loft in Castleberry Hill. The event was invitation only and was sponsored to raise awareness of the need to drastically reform the U.S. foster care system. Ne-yo’s mother was present, however Ne-yo was unable to attend this year’s event. Don’t worry though, John Legend took up the slack and gave the mothers a heartfelt performance.
On a side note, Sandra Rose is reporting that Andre “3000” Benjamin’s mother, affectionately known in the “A” as “Ma Benjamin” was also unable to attend the event due to damage received to her fayetteville home during Sunday morning’s tornados. We wish her the best and pray for all of the families affected by this weekend’s storms.
