NEWS ROUND UP
I would like to quickly clarify what happened at the Kanye West show in California. Actually, it was a Common show that Kanye popped up on. Last week I said that Kanye dissed the Grammys. Well, it wasnt at the Anaheim show like I said. This apparently occurred at the Hollywood show at the House of Blues. I wasnt there so I didnt hear it or anything. Also, I heard that in a third verse freestyle, Kanye said I beat 50.Thanks a lot, Peter!! (See the pics down below)
EMINEM RUMORS FALSE
There was another crappy Eminem rumor coming out that the Detroit rapper was going to be wrestling in the WWE. Shame on you if you believed that one. It was refuted faster than any other rumor in the history of man. Eminems publicity machine shot that down like a ducked on a firing range. "Eminem has no interest whatsoever in becoming a wrestler, a statement read. Anyway, I wouldnt want to see him come out like that, even though I am interested in seeing Eminem come back.
THE TRIAL OF THE CENTURY COMES TO FILM
Trial of the Chicago 7 is the working title of an upcoming film movie directed by Steven Spielberg. For those that dont know, this flick is about The Chicago Seven, a group of activists that were charged with conspiracy, inciting to riot and other charges related to violent protests that took place in Chicago, Illinois during the1968 Democratic National Convention. Well, it is rumored that Will Smith will play the Black Panther Bobby Seale. Smith isnt confirmed yet, but he has been informed that Spielberg wants him. Others rumored to be attached include Taye Diggs, Kevin Spacey, and Jeff Daniels. I dont really celebrate Black History Month, but this is good to hear in February.
KATT WILLIAMS TOURS HITS BOWLING ALLEY
Katt Williams is one of the coolest and oddest dudes in the game. Over the weekend, I heard he was in Sacramento, CA and he held a private comedy show at the Country Club Lanes, an area bowling alley. On top of that, the show was in a secluded area. From what I understand, Katt bowled all strikes for the fans in attendance. (That was a really bad metaphor for he performed well.) This is unrelated, but I heard E-40 and Too Short rocked at a club called Zocku over the weekend.
R.KELLY IS DOING THE DO
This is so FUNNY. Remember last year when I told you all that stuff about R.Kelly having relations with the daughter of his long time publicist Regina Daniels and friend / retail O.G. George Daniels? Its all common knowledge now, but at the time, nobody really knew what it was and I got a big scoop that Kellz was sleeping with their daughter. Well, somebody shot that down, saying it wasnt true. Lo and behold, four months later R. Kelly issues the following statement:
"It's hard to take seriously the moral outrage expressed by George and Regina Daniels over R. Kelly's relationship with Mr. Daniels' adult daughter, Maxine. The fact is that they had no problem with the relationship - indeed, they encouraged it - while Ms. Daniels was on Mr. Kelly's payroll. It was only after Ms. Daniels resigned her position to avoid being fired for incompetence that the relationship became an issue for her and her husband."
I believe this is going to be a new series for R.Kelly.
BRANDY GOT A NEW DO
I have no idea why I posted this, but I like Brandy. I still think this cut is something from the 80s b-girls.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
I know fathers dont really want their daughters having sex too early with boys, but this guy took things way to far. My girl Kera from Queens hit me after reading this Daily News story. A father of three from the Bronx strangled his own daughter after he caught her text messaging a boy. What did he do? He dumped her body in their apartment building furnace. He then called the police to tell on himself. He admitted to it all. His name is Miguel Matias and he had a history of mental illness. This history of illness played out when he told the police that he dumped the body in a wooded area and couldnt remember where she was. I think this could have been avoided. Matias once poured gasoline over his own car while his two sons and daughter were in it, a failed murder-suicide. That should have been the last time he saw his kids if you ask me.
I heard a rumor that Solange is joining the Pussy Cat Dolls! I wonder if that would give you a little lift in her career.
Could Lyor Cohen be leaving Warner Music? A&R Sickamore recently departed from his post at Warner. There rumors suggesting the big man (Lyor) is to bounce later this year.
Outkast is working. Now, I dont know how true this is, but I heard collectively the group will release three CDs this year. Andre 3000 is dropping one, Big Boi will drop a solo and then the both of them will do the Outkast thing later in the year.
I want to shout out the Highbrid Nation crew. Ya'll know why ;)
Amy Winehouses hubby allegedly overdosed on drugs recently, narrowly escaping death!
The Spice Girls are finished! They arent linking back up to record after their tour ends. I think its because nobody really cares, but I heard they have been infighting.
Diddy defending himself again assault charges:
"Instinctively, I outstretched one of my hands, which hand was not closed-fisted, to shield myself. Any contact between Mr. Rechnitzer and myself was caused by his forward motion against my stationary open hand."
MoNique on sex after 40:
"I'm experiencing something so different and liberating. Everybody says 40 is the new 20. But I don't want it to be the new 20. Everything is so better now. At 20, sexually, you don't know what you're doing. You look for it, you find it, you lose it a few times."
Janet on threesomes:
'Discipline' is about the experience of having sex with multiple partners. I think whatever you're into, as long as you both are into it, it's cool." [Illseed note: I just hope for JDs sake, the third person is a female.]
Barack Obama supporter Tom Scholz of rock band Boston to Mike Huckabee for using their song:
"Boston has never endorsed a political candidate, and with all due respect, would not start by endorsing a candidate who is the polar opposite of most everything Boston stands for. By using my song, and my band's name Boston, you have taken something of mine and used it to promote ideas to which I am opposed. In other words, I think I've been ripped off, dude!"
On her booty, Coco tells playboy.com its all real, baby!:
Ice will let women touch my butt, feel it, grab it, whatever they want to do, to prove that theres nothing in there.
Dave Mays on his partnership with Ray Benzino (eureweb.com):
"Here's what I can say and I'll say it to the day I die, the man is a genius, he's brilliant and he's been a critical person to our generation. He and I are going to accomplish things beyond anyone's imagination over the next 20 years. It's very ignorant for people from the outside to look at us and see the white guy from Harvard and assume (I'm) the brains of the operation."
I dont usually promote and push commercial products, but I have to say this movie looks good. Kudos to Common and The Game.
MIKE TYSON DEDICATION!
I know this to be a blasphemous statement, but the raw brutality of Kimbo Slice reminds me of Mike Tyson. (click here for the FULL illseed Tyson dedication page)
THE KIMBO SLICE FIGHT
If you are a fighting fan, you probably saw this already. Its only about 30 seconds of fighting, but Kimbo Slice downs Tank Abbott easily.
HUH? 40 GLOCC BEATS UP HOMELESS MAN?
With all this talk of KOs, Id be remiss if I didnt mention 40 Glocc, an affilate of Mobb Deep. I dont know what Mr. Glocc got out of this promotional move, but apparently he doesnt like derelict homeless people braggin about their red rags and cop daddy. At least it wasn't over food...
TRAVIS BARKER VS QUESTLOVE
Thats what up! These two percussion titans go at it something fierce! This is Hip-Hop!
COMMON TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW ALBUM
SHAWTY LO HES SPECIAL!
There is something about this dude that people love.
Nobody in this world is perfect, but I have to say that Megan Goode is rapidly approaching the there is none higher status. Now, if we can get her in a perfect movie
Hope Lily Allen ain't going the Winehouse way. She might want to roll with Common more often.
Speaking of Winehouse, it looks like she is getting back to normal. Cleavage? Crackheads don't have cleavage!
Speaking of Common and Lily. Here are some pics from The House of Blues in Hollywood Cali.
Then Kanye comes in to rock it like Herbie Hancock!
And then there was Jay and LeBron, who partied over the weekend in New Orleans. I wish I sold crack like Jay! (KIDDING) Jay-Z stays laughing super hard. Must be nice!
Another super happy picture. Steve Stoute is like, "What the hell is so funny???"
Gabeyonce looked really good at the party. Shout out to all the people displaced from New Orleans. Give back!
I know you all don't care about this babe, Mary Kate "Pucker Lips" Olson. This chick is a nut. I was told she hasn't shown teeth since she was 12.
