MARIAHS REAL MEANING?
Somebody hit me with this as an explanation as to the title of Mariahs new CD, E=MC2.
Just to clarify your Mariah E=MC2 comment it has nothing to do with Eminem. E stands for Emancipation(as in the title of her last album) MC is self explanatory and the 2 or squared simply means part 2. Emancipation of Mariah 2 but doesn't E=MC2 sound alot better.
Ddot the King hit me with that.
Charlamagne from Wendy Williams said this:
Come on illseed! Mariahs album title is E for Emancipation the MC for Mariah Carey and the 2 represents the Sequel - Emancipation Part 2.
LMAO! I didnt really think that the E meant Eminem, but its more interesting that way. Sorry Mimi!!
RUNS DAUGHTER DOING A LISA BONET!?
The homey B Eaze hit me up and told me that he came across some info regarding Vanessa Simmons and how she is doing a nude scene for an upcoming movie, with Guess who? Quentin Tarantino! I am not a big fan of that dude in fact I am not a fan at all. The movie is called Inglorious Bastards and it comes out in 2009. The rumor says that shell be doing a graphic nude scene. I know she wants to be regarded as a serious actor, but Angel Heart messed Lisa Bonets career up. Read our interview with Vanessa while you are at it! She discusses the FACTS, not conjecture.
FLASHING LIGHTS PREVIEW!
WHEW Kanye put his foot in this one. Look at the preview! This is real sweet for a Valentines Day special. I love it.
ARETHA IS GOING TO DISS BEYONCE AND TINA TURNER
There were a lot of little petty incidents at the Grammys I ignored a lot of them. You know, the whole thing with Rihanna pulling Beyonces man on stage like it was her man or something. Anyway, Aretha Frankin is universally regarded as the Queen of Soul. So, when Beyonce called Tina Turner the Queen before they performed, Aretha had to to issue the following statement.
"I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyoncé. However, I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy. I thank the Grammys and the voting academy for my 20th Grammy and love to Beyoncé anyway."
Also, I heard that Aretha refused to perform song with Mary, Alicia or any of the young bucks out there. Good for Aretha. No need to have anybody trying to upstage her.
AND POPPA KNOWLES TO THE RESCUE!
Poppa dont take no mess! He has promptly fired back at Aretha on the charge that B did something disrespectful to the Queen.
Im not even going to take this to [Beyonce]. Something this ridiculous, its childish, its unprofessional. And its a sad day when egos get bruised because somebody used the word king, queen, prince or princess.
Hes kind of right right?
AMERIE FINALLY GETS DROPPED?
Getting dropped is not always a bad thing! TRUST! When you arent making any forward progress, something has to give. With that said, I heard Amerie has been let go by Columbia Records. As you know, shes quite an international star, but never quite caught ablaze in the United States. Her album Because I Love It never got a release date in the States. I am hearing Amerie is already about to sign to another major label, but well see. Also, she has a nice lil diddy bop song (even though I had this up back in the summer!). Check out the video again.
I knew this, but Jye reminded me. The CW network has ended Girlfriends, a long running show that had all the fly ladies. We saw it coming.
Martin Scorsese will be directing the definitive biopic about Bob Marley.
I am hearing the Lil Troy, the H-Town rap legend, recently announced his retirement.
By the way, the KKK supporting Barack is and was a satire (aka a joke by a website), but hes on such a roll it seemed like it might be true.
Another rumor gets busted. I heard that Jason Fox and his Aunt Jackie are OK. Now, if he just could get J.D. and Def Jam to give him a release date.
YO! Gary Coleman was a virgin before this marriage of his came along. A true to life 40-year-old virgin.

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?
SPRINGDALE, Ark. -- A Springdale day care teacher raped a 4-year-old girl in an incident caught on tape, police said.
Cesar Monarrez, 18, had worked at the Royal Children's Academy part-time for about three or four months, officials said. According to an arrest warrant for Monarrez, the alleged victim described how he inappropriately touched her.
She told authorities that her privates were burning because "Bubba" touched her with a knife inside his pocket. Police identified Bubba as Monarrez, and investigators said closed-circuit video shows him pushing his hands beneath the girl's waistband while she was asleep.
Monarrez has been charged with rape.
OHHH...NO...Time to turn into a vigilante if that's my kid.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
What do you want for dinner? How about some cloned meat, eh? Would you like the rare, medium rare or well done? Well, these are the options soon to face people. Now, this might sound crazy, but it is actually happening. What is crazy to me is that, not only will these products be available in the supermarket, but also it will not carry any special labeling. Read on:
Last month, after years of debate, the Food and Drug Administration declared that meat and milk from most cloned livestock, and from their conventionally reproduced offspring, are as safe to eat as food from any other animals.
Wary of consumer backlash, some large grocers and restaurant operators say they plan to shun such products whether from clones or their offspring and will make sure their suppliers help them keep that vow. (Dallas News)
I dont really believe in cloning unless they are going to clone and illseed to help me personally live another 100-300 years. Read the full report right here.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, THUGS!

LIL ROMEO GETS A REALITY SHOW
Lady Drama says:
Damn they just give anyone a show now a days! I'm working on getting you a show Illseed right now as people peep this ish! LOL :-) What it would make for good TV!
Jay-Zs not mad. He recently told MTV something about him and Def Jam still being cool.
"I got so many different options. I wanna continue to push the envelope, represent the culture well. Make the people proud. The next thing is gonna involve a little bit of everything. It has to involve music, 'cause I love music. But I have so many other skills as an entrepreneur I can add to that. Even with the decline in CD sales, music [consumption] is at an all-time high. ... People still love music as much as ever. I'm trying to help other artists figure that out so you can make beautiful music and you don't have to pay your bills with your CDs. You're making money in so many other places. I'm just trying to figure that out."
Got Milk? The LaLa Edition...Lady Drama hit me with this. LaLa is the bomb! No disrespect, 'Melo! (This is from Sports Illustrated)
