TFGR can’t catch a break! After being outed for “borrowing” content for her essay on being a dark-skinned woman in America, Tameka went on a twitter rampage where she blasted the author who accused her of stealing her words:
The one quote that I found most interesting was:
“To steal ideas from one person is called PLAGAIRISM, to steal ideas from many is research.” ~ Unknown Ppl seek claim & fame by any means!
Someone please tell Tameka that to steal ideas at all is still STEALING! It’s really like a half-assed confession to say “yeah… I stole from you and several others but it was RESEARCH not plagairism…” *sigh* Just give the chick her credit and move on…
Meka also wrote a full explanation over at Global Grind where she gave the credit for her inspiration to several well-known Black authors including Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, Alex Haley, Susan Taylor, Khalil Gibran, Langston Hughes, Frederick Douglass and Zora Neale Hurston. She still failed to mention Aisha Curry but I guess her pride stands in the way. Stay tuned….

Usher Raymond IV was at the Playboy Club in Vegas last night hosting a party for Vegas Magazine Men’s Issue. If you recall, Usher is featured in the magazine in his a photo spread promoting his upcoming project:
Usher is sporting a brand new tatt, which he proudly revealed while on the red carpet of the Vegas Mag event. The streets are buzzing that he may have done it as a message to his future ex-wife, Tameka Foster Glover Raymond.
Check out the new tatt below: Continue Reading…
I’ve been working on a few projects around town and my posts have been few and far between (I’m sorry!). I certainly haven’t been sitting on my hands waiting on Tameka Foster Glover Raymond to issue a response regarding the emailed threat against me. Truth be told, I’ve been advised to seek a restraining order against Usher’s soon to be ex, but decided to let sleeping dogs lie for a while. Being who I am, I figured Meka didn’t need the added drama during all the divorce proceedings, so I just sat still and remained quiet. Unfortunately for her, the drama has continued online and off.
A reporter by the name of LaShonda Matlock hit me up with a copy of an emailed interview between she and Tameka. In it, Tameka addresses the threats against me and also took time to spew a few untruths. I sometimes wonder if Meka even knows she’s lying. She may be one of those people who actually believe their own tall tales. Whatever the case may be, I’m here to tell you that the “interview” is totally bogus (no offense LaShonda). It’s only meant to draw attention away from the fact that Tameka is way out of control.
Those of you who follow me on TWITTER know that after I received the original email from “Margeaux” aka Mrs. Raymond, I hit up my tweeps first before even going in on a post. Not long after I put it out there that I’d gotten a threat, I received another email from “Margeaux” calling me paranoid. The 2nd email is what prompted me to reveal the original threat on the site. Now she’s calling this a “rumor”? Don’t worry. I’m totally documenting this paper trail.
So…follow me as I break down Tameka’s “interview” in true native ATLien “truth serum” fashion:
Ok…is it me or is Usher showing ‘fever’ in his cover shot for Vegas Magazine? The necklace, the v-neck…that look. *sigh* The July/August issue hits stands next week and Ush is the first male on the cover of mag in its entire six years in production (I guess that explains the pearls 😕 ). In the issue, Usher talks about his new fragrance Usher VIP (his third fragrance with Elizabeth Arden), recording sessions in Vegas, and his upcoming album and more. He even discusses how he plans on being back real lovemaking music for the masses:
“The sex in music, the good sex in music, the lovemaking in music, we’ve begun to depart from it. Right now it’s all about hitting it and quitting it. I think there are a ton of women out there who want to be made love to and want to have that song going that they really want to make love to.”
“In time I’m going to grow older, but I hope that I can be remembered for being a great father to my sons, a gentleman, a renaissance man.”

I’ve been keeping kind of a low profile after the threat I received the other day, but my media buddies have all been standing by me in my plight. Recently, I was awakened my a slew of phone calls after AOL Black Voices columnist, Jawn Murray mentioned the emailed threats I’ve been receiving during his gossip segment on The Tom Joyner Morning Show. I finally got a chance to listen to it online and almost fell out of my chair when I realized he said my REAL government name on air. I ain’t mad though. Those of you who know me know I ain’t never hid my true identity.
In case you missed it, check out what Jawn had to say about it below:
