Check out a few flix of what was billed as T.I.’s final live performance before hitting the clink. Tip performed at Jet Mirage Nightclub in Vegas Monday evening and what started out as a routine club performance ended as a peep show as Tip displayed his hairy goodies onstage.
*Updated* Here’s what happened according to an email received by NecoleBitchie from an onlooker at the club:
I am a TI STAN. Love Him to DEATH!! but felt a certain way when seeing this photo of him posted over on Sister 2 Sister?s website. He was at a concert in Vegas when he wiped his ding dong with his shirt, then gave it to some girl in the crowd. I am a stan but even my groupie has it?s limits. And can you please pass the message to TI that his bird cage is not sexy. My husband makes me wax on the regular and he keeps a nice trim so it bothers me when I see hairy azz men who don?t trim their bushes. How can a female ever find his gold in that tangled web.
As I was looking through my inauguration TiVo gems the other night, I came across Usher on Larry King Live.? Mr. Raymond appearing on CNN is really no biggie, I mean…he sang for President Obama during the opening ceremonies. Right? Right. But you can never predict LIVE TV and Usher hilariously missed his que while he was jamming to the music at the youth ball. Ursh eventually caught up, but him singing while Larry King was calling his name had me quite tickled 😆
President-elect Barack Obama‘s Inauguration Celebration began today with the “We Are One” inaugural opening celebration. The star-studded event was aired live on several channels, however HBO picked up the show and added it to their Sunday evening line-up. There were several performances but a few to note were Usher, Stevie Wonder, and Shakira’s performance of Stevie’s Higher Ground; Mary J. Blige performed Lean on Me; Jamie Foxx wowed the crowd with his Obama impression and Beyonce closed out the ceremony with her rendtion of America the Beautiful.? If you missed it…check out a few clips below:

Usher’s Inman Park franchise of The Grape Restaurant has officially closed it’s doors. The location opened to widespread publicity in late 2006 but the spot ? a wine bar, bistro and wine retailer rolled into one ? did not reopen in the New Year and also did not renew its liquor license with the Georgia Department of Revenue.
Currently, three local branches of the Grape remain: in the Vinings Jubilee shopping center, Phipps Plaza and Atlantic Station. The Atlanta-based Grape Enterprise Group Inc., which both owns and franchises shops mostly throughout the Southeast, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November. Its franchise locations, such as the one in Inman Park, were not party to the filing.
When Raymond Usher IV first met with reporters at the opening of the Inman Park branch wearing a cabernet-purple blazer, he spoke of opening franchises in locales as far flung as Shanghai and South America. Those plans never came to fruition.
A request for comment from Usher?s publicist was not returned by the time of publication. (Source)
He’s the first man on my banner so it’s only fitting that my first post would be about my favorite couple Ushmeka! Obviously rumors of their demise have been exaggerated! Usher Raymond and his ride or die chick Tameka Foster Raymond have been partying it up over the holidays. Initially spotted together at Devyne Stephen’s 007 Black Tie Affair in Atlanta and finally ringing in the new year during a party at The Bank in Las Vegas. Tameka dropped that load and is back full swing on the party circuit. Little Naviyd Ely Raymond, barely 3-weeks old, is very well taken care of so don’t fret. You already know Meka is not about to sit quitely while Usher travels the world. Heck no! Kids or no kids she is all about her man! Now…THAT’s a real woman.
