THE DAILY TWO CENTS
What is there to say? Over the weekend, so much happened. Here are the links for what you might have missed.
Link 1 – Snoop leaves Interscope
Link 4 Classic Big Pun collaborations!
RHIANNA HAS A BLACK EYE OR ANOTHER FEMALE?
First, from what I understand Chris Brown is out of jail or police custody and has been charged with one count felony criminal threats. His bail was set at $50,000..
Nobody really knows what happened, but Chris Brown might have really messed up bad, if the rumors are right. They are saying that Brown and Rihanna got into a fight late Sunday night. In the fight, he hit her, but the person is presently listed as unidentified. Anyway, the victim identified Brown as her attacker. He rolled before the cops got there. Anyway, I am hearing that the alleged altercation has the lovely Ri Ri with a blackened eye. I am not sure, but that’s the intel that I am getting. You know we are going to hear more on this. Why is all this foolishness taking place during Black History Month.
Here is the second part of the rumor, where I will tread very lightly. My homey Rhymestyle (who I battled on Twitter) sent me a blurb that Chris and Rihanna might have gotten into a beef, because she may have given him a VD. If you don’t know what that is, its a venereal disease. In this particular case, the word Herpes has been floating around. NOW, THIS IS FALSE, until proven true at some point in the future, Right?
Anyway, I must note that there are sources that I trust that say Brown didnt hit Rihanna at all. They are saying that there was actually a car accident. I am also hearing that some girl disrespected Rihanna by hitting on Chris Brown right in front of Ri Ri. Ri Ri screamed on the girl and the girl may have gotten too hype and Chris busted clocked HER, not Ri Ri. Also, I am hearing that their PR reps are all looking to get on the same page with whatever the final story will wind up being. MAKES SENSE TO ME!
BEYONCE WANTS HER MILLION!
Apparently, in Austria there is a huge festival called The Vienna Opera Ball. It takes place on February 15th, 2009. A rich Austrian real estate mogul invites a star or starlet to accompany him to the ball every year. From what I understand, Beyonce accepted his invitation to attend this years ball, who has been escorted by some starlet since 1992. I heard that B’s management agreed to do it, but it was past the deadline. Now, it appears that Nicolette Sheridan from “Desperate Housewives” was booked instead. I heard Beyonce is LIVID that she will will miss the $1 million dollar for two days pay off. Other honorees in the past include Carmen Electra and Pamela Anderson. I don’t know how true this is, but…Damn.
FAKE SNOOP TRICKING PEOPLE!?
I hate to saying it, but some people might not have been important enough, but AHH is good to go for this. Here is what I am hearing from people other than us.
I cant believe it. Im not even important enough to get tricked by a fake Snoop Dogg. Im wack. Peep it though. Apparently, there is a person pretending to be Snoop Dogg and inviting people to Cali for his concert. Well, somebody at AllHipHop was invited too, but guess what? Its a fraud! This smoke out thingy was supposedly going to show several rappers like Kurupt, Snoop Dogg, Juelz Santana, Lil Wayne and others smoking until somebody passes out or something. I heard B-Real wants in! Anyway, nobody got any information after being strung along for several days. Poor, important people.
KANYE GOT A NEW BABY BOO?
There is this new chick named Amber Rose and shes allegedly the new love interest in Kanyes life. Who knows? Anyway, Amber has really short hair. Almost bald. Shes very pretty though so that is nothing more than her shtick. Pause. Anyway here are the images TMZ found.
Fantasia didn’t finish high school, but thats going to change. She is going back to finish whatever level she never finished in school.
Auntie Vivica Fox is going hard in the paint! She is going to be hosting a reality show called ‘The Cougar’ and she is going to help older women get a younger dude. SMH.
Lil Kim is all set for the next season of Dancing with the Stars. Go Kim and click here for the story.
You know, if Chris Brown hit RiRi or any woman thats a straight hoe move.
GOTCHA! Eddie Murphy will be paying Mel B over $40,000 a month for child support for their daughter Angel. Thats a lot of bread for the next 17 or so years.
I hope M.I.A. has that kid! Anyway, she likes to talk about the politics of Sri Lanka. Check her out here.
I guess Common and Serena are still an item. They were seen going through LAX Airport on Friday (February 6).
Rick Ross to 50 Cent, fake teeth, fake street. Only fake n***as feed on fake beef. At least he’s admitting the beef is fake.I wonder what Ross thinks of The Game “siding” with 50 Cent?
Charlie Wilson has prostate cancer. Good luck, OG. Were pulling for you.
Ne-Yo explains what happened with Jim Jones and his homey/manager.
I guess Jim Jones and Vogn have had drama in the past or whatever so Vogn taps me on the shoulder like ,Look who just walked in here. Jones wasnt necessarily trying to hurt nobody he was more trying to embarrass, trying to humiliate Vogn and Vogn being who he is, Vogn wasnt going for that. So at one point it escalated to where Jim Jones pulled out his cell phone and started recording, put the phone right in Vogn face, talking bout You a punk, you a this you, you a that, recording it on some Im gonna put this on YouTube. Vogn at that point couldnt take anymore, smacked the phone outta Jims hand. [And] they got to wrestling on the floor in the Louis store.
Jermaine Dupri is enjoying the single life, I guess.
“I GOTTA SAY THERES IS NO PLACE LIKE VEGAS WHEN IT COMES TO PARTYING AND THE TITTYS!!!!! THEY NEED TO CHANGE THE NAME [TO] T#### LAND LOL” (Usher is rumored to be in Vegas with JD doing his new album. Two and Two = Four.)
GRAMMY OBSERVATIONS FROM ILLSEED
So, Chris Brown put hands on Rhianna? I wonder what they were fighting over?
So, Jay had to show up during Coldplay’s set, eh? I want Jay to show up on his own set doing “Money Goes” or something.
Al Green still has it.
Glad to see Estelle getting a nod even though she didn’t stand a chance against Coldplay.
I love how Kid Rock can flip flop between rock and other genres.
Loving the Chris Brown gum commercial. At least when he allegedly “two-piece” Rhianna, he was minty fresh.
Kanye West was straight looking like Rockwell up on stage.
The first thing I thought of with Morgan Freeman was “they used to call me crazy joe, but now they call me BATMAN.”
“Swagger Like Us” didn’t do it for me, but T.I. killed it with that last verse.
Wayne was flaggin for the Grammy crowd!
At this point uhm I became more interested in Twittering about it. If you want to see my views, check my twitter pages. Twitter.com/illseed
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
I don’t know if you all are keeping up with what’s going on the world, but Australia is going through some terrible wildfires. Here is a letter from one of my favorite Aussie readers named Luca. This is some crazy mess. Read up.
“I’m speaking of the South East Australian Wildfires that have ravished our state over the past 2 days. This is surely our worst disaster in my 26 years on this planet. My sister and her boyfriend were in the fires but were luckily saved by changing winds. The scariest thing was that no one knew the savagery of the fires (We have these types of bushfires almost every year but this year was insane), my sister called me from a local pub where families had been evacuated to (families who had lost everything, their kids ran around butt naked because they’d lost EVERYTHING to the fires) and I honestly didnt feel that she was in trouble until i heard that her shoes were melting. Its just so so sad. People who tried to escape the fires in vain jumped into their pools but were boiled alive.. People too late to flee jumped in their cars at the last minute to realise that the fuel in their cars had evaporated.. The scariest thing is that all this didnt happen out in the outback- it was 20 minutes away from the city of Melbourne, Australia pop. 3.5 million.”
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
According to panachereport.com, Micheal Jordans daddy sexually abused his daughter. She makes these claims in a new book. You know, Michael Jordans daddy is dead and gone. Hes not here to defend himself or even comment on the allegations levied at him. On the other side, his daughter probably wouldnt lie about such allegations. In my opinion nobody wins in this case so, its an EPIC FAIL.
“Please understand that sexual molestation brutally violates a child’s mind; destroying all traces of innocence. And more often than not, it takes with it their security and self-worth while imprisoning them in a painful world of silence and guilt.”
“When I finally found the courage to let my father’s deeds tumble from my lips, I did not know what to expect, but I never in a million years would have guessed that my mother would turn on me. Her words of betrayals did far more damage to me than my father’s deeds. They spoke volumes to the fact that she really did not care about me, which my father obviously knew. It is because she was so expressive with her dislike for me that probably made my father know he could get away with violating me.”
“It turned out to be true, when he told me that if I ever told, it would be he that my mother believed and me that the family hated.”
“My father confessed his actions on the same day that I disclosed them to my mother. And on that frightful day of admission, I watched my mother, looking for a sign, any sign that she cared about me.”
“I watched her as she stood in my bedroom citing their decision to send me away. Once again, I became the little girl who was always looking for her mother’s signal of affection and approval, but once again there was none!”
“The memory of my father whispering in my ear during the wee hours of the night about the beauty of my body has played over and over in my head for many years. And as if that has not been incapacitating enough by itself, having to comprehend the fact that more often than not, he had just gotten out of the bed he shared with my mother to find his way to my bedroom has just added to the realization of the painful situation.”
“It came to injure my mother’s womanhood to such a point that she came to think of me as her adversary, with her striking out at me (the other woman) every chance she could, no matter where we were and what the occasion.”
