Super producer Vaushaun “Maestro” Brooks and celebrity photographer Joi Pearson threw a celebrity filled birthday bash for their 1-year old son Brenton a few weeks ago.
Brenton, aka @LilBBreezy on twitter, has only been on this earth a lil over 12 months and he’s already listed amongst the who’s who in Atlanta.
[Sidebar: He probably even has more twitter followers than you! 😆 ]
Like seriously, Brenton’s kiddie party could rival just about any “grown folks” party and was attended by the likes of Toya Carter, Memphitz, DJ Judgemental… and more!
I swear it was like a celebrity filled Super Sweet 12 month celebration!

While I was napping at the beach last weekend, Dr. Ian Smith and his crew converged on Atlanta to promote healthy living and weight management. Thankfully my girl Joi held it down for the A-Team and got some great photos!
Dr. Ian enlisted the help of RHOA’s Kandi Burruss and Congressman John Lewis as they walked the “Makeover Mile” along with several health conscious Atlanta area residents.
The event kicked off the CVS “To Your Health” program in Atlanta with a one mile health walk that ran from Fair Street near the AU Center to CVS on Joseph Lowery in West End.
More than 1000 Atlanta residents came out in an effort to fight obesity, walking toward a healthier lifestyle.

Remember when R.L. was dissed by one of the Jagged Edge twins?
Well a few weeks ago, R.L. was insulted when Kyle of Jagged Edge refused to pose for a picture with him, so what does he do? He Bogart’s Jazze Pha’s interview b*tchin’ about it. (Click HERE if you missed it.)
RL & Kyle reunited recently and… ummm let’s just say that old school beef dies hard. 😯
Q Parker (of 112) held a birthday bash at Atlanta Justin’s restaurant where all of the 90’s crooners took to the stage. Kyle, who apparently wanted to get a message across to RL, managed to grab the mic to make the following statement:
I don’t give a damn what yall saw on that Twitter page, but RL don’t mean a got damn thing in ATL….
Lawd… will it ever end?

Lauryn Hill’s last concert in the “A” was a major disappointment after she hit the stage 3 hours late and proceeded to sing the same songs over and over again.
Even the most diehard fans felt ‘some kinda way’ about Lauryn’s actions and some even crossed her off their list of favorites for good.

Well apparently Lauryn knows she acted an “A”zz so she’s coming back to town and wants to make it all up to you guys.
Hill hit up her twitter account recently to send her Atlanta fans the following message: Continue Reading…
Last week, I had the distinct honor of being invited to speak to the youth of Sugga’s Industries International, Behind The Scenes in Sports & Entertainment after-school program.
Held at Atlanta’s Turner Middle School, the program provides training to high school students in an effort to assist the sports and entertainment industry in diversifying its audience and talent pool.
Anyone who knows me is quite aware that I’m not a “public” speaking type of girl, so it was initially uncomfortable but because I was talking about something I love to do, the information flowed freely.
We discussed blogging, advertising, event coverage, video editing… just about everything that entails StraightFromTheA.com. Including social networking via Twitter, Facebook, etc…. we even touched on a bit of industry gossip (and you will be pleased to note, I kept it strictly P.G.).
[Sidebar: I almost fainted when told the others that Phaedra was my lawyer and I was at her wedding… you people really do pay attention, huh? 😆 ]
I’d like to take a moment to thank Tiphanie Watson and Suggas for inviting me out to speak to the kids. Hopefully, I shared some insightful information about this crazy world of entertainment blogging.

Polow Da Don and Mary J. Blige… oops I mean Keri Hilson were spotted at BMI’s intimate, invitation-only mixer, held to honor the Grammy Award-winning producer for his musical and humanitarian accomplishments.
Looking at the photo above, I can almost understand how The New York Post made THIS mistake.
…but I digress.
Immediately following the mixer, Keri Hilson hosted a Symmetry Live “new music” night in conjunction with Polow’s Zone 4, Inc.
The photogs always manage to catch Keri with a cup in her hand… [Sidebar: I see a liquor endorsement in her future.]
Artists featured on BMI/Zone IV’s new music “afterparty” included Lloyd, Timothy Bloom and a female artist who eerily resembled RHOA’s Lawrence Washington.
