Stringer Bell…oops! I mean Idris Elba was spotted behind the DJ Booth at Uptown last Saturday night. We hit the spot mad late so I’m not sure if he was actually DJ-ing or not but I’m sure DJ Trauma had it on lock. I couldn’t help but drool over Idris’ sexy “A”zzz swag with or without his glasses. I personally think that the glasses make him look distinguished and polished, but he seems to have somewhat of a complex, stating on the mike that “Nobody better say nuffin else bout my glasses!” 😆
Actress/Comedienne Niecy Nash‘s celebrity filled birthday bash was held at celebrity photographer Derek Blanks‘ studio Saturday night. Niecy, star of Comedy Central’s “Reno 911” and host of The Style Network’s “Clean House” was all aglow as she showed off her svelte new figure with silver sequins. Niecy lost a ton of weight while on Jenny Craig and I think she’s still one of the spokespersons for they were one of the sponsors of the party.
The Atlanta housewives stopped through and totally stole Niecy’s thunder, all the while keeping the guests more than entertained. NeNe told me she hated bloggers before realizing I was one but I think we kinda bonded after she, Sheree and I had a conversation about how they feel bloggers hate on them all the time and only write negative things. I immediately took offense and explained how all press is good press and told them to stand strong in knowing that we (or I since I can only speak for myself) only write about things I care about. So there! My new BFF NeNe’s response? “Keep on hating and keep on blogging!” Celebrity hairstylist Derek J even managed to jump down my throat for asking him to tell the readers who he was (on camera).. I LOVE HIM! 😆
Anyway…everyone knows that The Real Housewives without husbands of Atlanta is my sh*t and I would never say cruel things about them. *cough* [Help! I’m choking.] Moving on….Kim Zolciak came through for about half a second and walked the red carpet before fleeing out the front door (as if we cared)..and before you ask…there was no sign of new housewife Kandi Buress.
Slim of 112 recently shot the video in Atlanta for his next single for his solo album “Loves Crazy”, which is in stores now. The new song is called Apologize and Slim is shown in the video serenading us in front of an all female band. Great concept for this smooth ballad!
“Apologize” ~ Slim
I so hate I missed the shoot…it was the perfect time for me to reshoot my lost Slim old school memory footage! Oh well…Maybe next week!

I caught up with Gorilla Zoe at the Atlanta Zoo last week during his”Don’t Feed The Animals” listening session. He shared his Old School Atlanta Memories or well…actually he shared a list which included Atlanta during the Olympics, the Braves championships seasons and of course Willie B ~ our infamous Gorilla. 😆
Outkast’s infamous Stankonia studio was the location of an exclusive listening session Wednesday night. Jeron Ward and Rick Wallk, the super producing duo behind Royal Flush Ent. hosted a top knotch event and laid out the red carpet for up and coming singers, songwriters, producers, and music industry professionals. Some of you may be wondering ‘who are these dudes?” Well, in case you’ve been under a rock or just plain in the dark, these two are the masterminds behind Big Boi’s recent grammy nominated song, “Royal Flush” featuring Andre 3000 and Raekwon.
Just to refresh your memory…
I also found this recent Rolling Out video of Jeron and Rick describing how it felt to be nominated:
These are two really cool, down to earth dudes who work hard to make great music. I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from them REAL SOON.
Danity Kane alumni D. Woods performed live in Atlanta Tuesday night. The show was held at Sambuca and was packed wall to wall with fans. Since I was only there to support my girl Dee, I had no idea that Janelle Monae was going to perform (I know I’m slow). Each performed two songs and Janelle was somewhat of a pleasant surprise….that is, until she jumped on my table and almost broke my camera! That chick is hilarious! Click Here to watch her performance (fast forward to 4:15 to see her ‘table dance’) 😆
I was live TWITTERing and filming at the same time. Check out a few of the pics my followers got during the show..
@JanelleMonae is up next… D. Woods totally rocked it out! 1:02 AM Mar 4th
Sound check takin way too long… Plus I gotta go to the ladies room and don’t wanna lose my seat. These Bastiids! 12:34 AM Mar 4th
