KANYE OR JD?
There is a rumor that Kanye West is going around by an alias called the "Tokin' Black Guy." I have to admit that I don't believe this rumor to be true, but I thought I would let it entertain us anyway. Tokin Black Guy has released a few songs, more notably "Body Clock" and "Turn My Music High." Anyway, I heard that this "Kanye West" is actually Jermaine Dupri in disguise. Who knows! Anyway, whoever keeps emailing me and claiming to be Kanye West, keep doing it. It makes me feel important and stuff like Kanye knows who I am!
R.KELLY: WHY HE GOT MACED?
Do you remember, once upon a time, Jay-Z and R.Kelly toured together as the Best of Both Worlds ? Do you remember that? Anyway, that was indeed a very ill-fated tour. One of the highlights was when Jay-Zs boy Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith maced R. Kelly in the face, a move that required Kelz to go to the hospital. But, I heard Kelly might have does something to disrespect Beyonce and then got the biz-ness. What he may have done, I dont know. That was so long ago, I forgot.
CONGRATS TO RYAN LESLIE!
I heard that Ryan Leslie has finally once and for all- gotten rid of the memory of Cassie! I have been informed that RL is now officially off the market. He is an engaged man to a fine young lady. I mean, thats a winner right? Congrats dude!
THE END AND NEW ERA IS HERE:
Mathew Knowles has been a positive influence in my career. I have had great success under his guidance - both as a member of Destinys Child and with my solo projects. Although we have decided to part ways professionally, the Knowles family and the entire Music World Entertainment team will always be my family.
After a very positive meeting between Kelly Rowland and myself, we have amicably agreed to end our professional relationship. My company, Music World, will continue to manage Destinys Child as a group. As an artist Kelly has incredible talent and I only wish her the best. We will always be family first and foremost, and as a dad I only have love for Kelly.
WILLIE D OF THE GETO BOYS TRICKS FOX!
Geto Boys member Willie D's group has tricked Fox! From what I understand, his rap group Huntzville (for context they are three white guys) The group performed their new single "Backpack Fulla Gunz" Friday on Fox TV in Houston morning show. The group pissed somebody off because Fox issued an apology on their website, stating "Fox 26 apologizes to those viewers who were offended by the musical group Huntzville's performance during Friday morning's show." Here is what Willie D had to say about that: "In over 20 years of working in the music business, I never seen a television station or network apologize for a group's lyrics. Huntzville performed a song about school shootings, warning the public of an extreme consequence of bullying. We have nothing to apologize for."
Willie also said, "Not so long ago, the repercussions for bullying another student meant you got sent to the principal's office or sent home. Today, bullies are being sent to the cemetery."
Big Joe, former muscle of Dip Set, is doing a book called "Interview Of A Diplomat." He's going in on a lot of people I heard. Wow. He said, "There ain't s**t you can do about it."
JACKI-O'S NEW DRAMA
I am hearing that Jacki-O is having some label drama, even though she is on the cover of magazines looking pretty fresh. Apparently, she's recorded enough songs to release at least four or five album. I don't know who Gracie Productions is, but they seem to be a company that works closely with Jacki-O. I am being told that they picked six older songs to be released on the album along with 5 new ones. I heard Jacki-O may not be pleased with the way things are going down. I can't call it!!!
BIGGIE'S KIDS ICHAT
This is very weird, but cool to see Big's kids chilling and normal.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
This story broke yesterday and I know everybody saw it, but I HAVE to put it up. Ervin Lupoe killed his entire family, including five kids and his wife. Ervin Lupoe killed them all and then took his own life. They were found shot to death in the upstairs of the family's home.
"The reaction on their faces was not a pretty sight," neighbor Jasmine Gomez told CNN. "There was an officer who came out of the house throwing up."
Ervin Lupoe went off after both he and his wife lost their jobs. Lupoe and his wife worked at Kaiser Permanente's West Los Angeles Medical Center and they were both let go. The 40-year-old Ervin Lupoe was in the midst of a dispute with his job and claimed, in a suicide note, that his boss told him to kill himself. The medical center denies this.
Lupoe wrote in the suicide note that was faxed to a local news station, "after a horrendous ordeal, my wife felt it better to end our lives; and why leave our children in someone else's hands ... we have no job and 5 children under 8 years with no place to go. So here we are."
They were only fired a WEEK or so ago! GOOD GOD! Anyway, this is insanity and it's becoming more and more frequent. No matter what, its never hopeless! Hold on!
Here are the dead-Ana Elizabeth Lupoe was 38; the children: 8-year-old Brittney Nicole; 5-year-old twins Jaszmin Lissette and Jassely Lisbeth; and 2-year-old twins Christian De Shawn and Benjamin Ryan.
Final sign: Ana Elizabeth was reportedly pregnant with twins, according to her mother.
