Now you know I have to say congrats to my ladies of The View!!! Yay! They picked up the 2009 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host... as they should!

50 Cent Community Event Canceled

Wow I'm so disappointed in the NY Law Enforment on this one. I honestly don't think there was a problem with 50 having the community event and for them to want to postpone it to work things out better... please explain what needs to be worked out better? People get on rap artist for negative things and then want to find a problem when they try to do something commendable. But never the less... 50 Cent's community event that was to be held this past weekend in Queens, NY was canceled due to fear of violence occurring. 50's manager did confirm this. They are currently working with the Police to figure out another date. But if you fear violence now... what would make you not fear it two or three months from now when its rescheduled??? I just don't get it. 50 is quoted, "I am constantly searching for ways to give back to the community that helped create me and contributed to my success," he goes on, "I can think of no better way to do this than to help improve the lives of the young people that reside there through programs created by my foundation."

New Music Lloyd " Pusha"

Finally some new music from Lloyd. I was wondering where he was because I still listen to Street Talkin' in the car from time to time. Who didn't love "YOU" and I don't know about you but I actually love the Intro to the album... you know that 90 second intro artist do... I play that on repeat because I like it so much... Lloyd that should have been a fill single! But anyway, check out his new some "Pusha". No word on his album title yet but he did leave his label, The Inc. From what he says there is no ill feelings between them. Lloyd is just branching out looking for new opportunities to build upon. Pusha is produced by The Runners and featuring Juelz Santana.

DJ AM Found Dead

DJ AM born Adam Goldstein was found dead in his Soho apartment on friday Aug 28th. Many know he survived a plane crash last year. According to the New York Post, Cops found prescription drug bottles inside DJ AM's residence at 210 Lafayette St. after the 36-year-old's lifeless body spotted face-down in his bed at around 5:23 p.m. by a friend, who was concerned he hadn't heard from the performer in several days. DJ AM was filming a reality show for MTV surrounding drug addiction. Like I said on twitter I didn't know DJ AM personally but by all the tweets I saw from so many people he was really loved. My condolences go out to those having to mourn a good friend and family member. For those that don't know DJ AM is a "Philly Native"! Check out part of an interview he recently did and talked about Philly.

Bo Bliz: What has your connection to Philadelphia been since you moved from here?
AM: I have always stayed in touch with my Sister who still lives there and I get back there at lease every 2 months just to take a walk and remember my childhood. I love that city. Damn, bout to start crying! I am a mush ball when it comes to Philly!

CA: Being a born Philadelphia kid, what you do miss most about Philly and its style?
AM: The food, the people, and the over all energy that you can actually smell and see on the streets. Philly has more flavor and character then anywhere in the world I have ever been, other then Prague

BB: What was your reaction to the support you received at DJ Day here in Philadelphia?
AM: I was totally speechless. When Jazzy Jeff showed me the pics I was floored. I had NO idea half of these legends knew who I was, let alone how I DJed and supported me. It was like winning an Oscar.

Rihanna Covers September Couture Vogue Italia

Check out our girl Rihanna on the cover of the September Couture Vogue Italia.

Ted Kennedy 1932 - 2009

I actually found out while on a slight vacation wednesday morning. My condelences and prayers go out to the Kennedy family as they prepare for the burial of the Ted Kennedy. Kennedy died Tuesday night in Hyannis Port after a 15-month battle with brain cancer. He was 77, and had represented Massachusetts in the Senate since 1962. For those in Boston you may have been there when his cortege passed through Boston and a bell at Faneuil Hall was rung 47 times. This was to represent each of Kennedy's 47 years in office. A memorial service is to be held this evening. President Obama, who called Kennedy an "extraordinary leader" Wednesday, will deliver a eulogy at the funeral, according to several sources. R.I.P Ted Kennedy.

Jay Z Benefit Concert September 11th

First, I would love to go to this concert! Jay-Z will play a benefit concert at Madison Square Garden on September 11, to help raise money for the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund. Now if your like me and don't live in NYC and may not be able to make it out there you can watch on FUSE TV! They will air the concert September 11th at 9pm and this is the same day as the release of Jay Z's BluePrint 3 album. I think what Jay is doing is very commendable. I know people have their opinions of him lately but you can't deny this is great of him to do. Jay Z is quoted in saying, "This charity and concert encompass the true spirit of New York City," "We are asking everyone to 'answer the call' and support and honor the families of those that lost their lives in the line of duty. There was true camaraderie and resiliency that this city showed the world in 2001, and we continue that today by taking care of our own." Also the concert is underwritten by Absolut, Live Nation and Jay-Z himself.

Remembering Aaliyah

Aaliyah Dana Haughton as well as Anthony Dodd, Eric Foreman, Scott Gallin, Keeth Wallace, Gina Smith, Douglas Kratz, Christopher Maldonado, and Luis Morales all passsed away eight years ago today in the tragic plane crash. I still remember the day... talk about shock. Just wanted to post a few of her songs so you could ENJOY her memory. We love you Aaliyah!

Aaliyah -- We Miss You


Aaliyah -- Four Page Letter


Aaliyah -- I Care For You (It's hard to pick but I think this is my favorite)


Aaliyah -- Try Again (I have to get up everytime this beat drops Lol)

Jay Z - Reminder

Coroner's Finding Says Michael Jackson Died of Overdose

Yesterday Los Angeles coroner's officially stated that Michael Jackson died of and overdose propofol, a powerful sedative he was given to help him sleep. This is according to court documents released Monday. I think most of us knew this was the case but were just waiting for the official reports. Jackson family lawyer Londell McMillan said the report "reaffirms the very sad reality that there was a tragic and gross violation of duty and care for Michael Jackson."
The publicist for Jackson's family said the "family looks forward to the day that justice can be served." Wow, Dr. Conrad Murray was the doctor treating Michael up until his death... I think it's safe to say he needs to find another career.

Lawyer Calls For Hip Hop "Morality" Clause In Contracts

If you can recall Lauren Rayson is the lawyer responsible for prosecutinr Remi Ma. Rayson has called a press conference today (aug 24th) in New York telling Record Labels to basical take some account and monitor the violence in the Hip Hop culture. Raysor plan to use the press conference to request that all labels create a morality clause in their contracts, this means an artist’s deal would be terminated for any acts seen as objectionable to society. Wow... I don't know if labels will go for this. "Objectionable to society" is a wide range range of things... this will get touchy. Hmmm... what do you think? I feeling like it's a good idea. I just don't see record labels going for it. According to a representative for Raysor, the “morality clause” concept would not be a device to target Hip-Hop artists, but a contract item to ensure all musicians consider the career ramifications for any violent acts. Good it does need to be across the board.

Tony Danza Films Reality Show At Northeast HS in Philly

Let me start by saying I LOVED "Who's The Boss" Lol. But it was just confirmed yesterday by the Philadelphia Daily News that Danza will be filming a reality show this year for A&E and they have chosen Philly's own Northeast High School as the location. So get ready for "Mr. Danza" Lol. There is some concerns about having the show filmed here in Philly. Click the link below for the full story. http://www.philly.com/philly/hp/news_update/20090820_School_panel__Danza_s_a_class_act.html?referrer=facebook

Ashanti and Nelly Call A Quits

Its circling the internet that according the NY Daily News Ashanti and Nelly have broken up. Now over the years there were always rumors of Nelly proposing and them getting married and the whole nine and it never happened. So, at this point the NY Daily News are reporting that the couple split up because Ashanti is ready to settle down and Nelly isn't. Reps from both sides have declined to comment. That kind of leads you to believe this is true. I don't find this suprising though. Nelly and Ashanti have been together so long we were either going to hear they got married or they finally let go. If the reasoning is because she wanted to settle down then Ashanti, I'm with you on this... you have been dating way too long to continue just dating. It's hard letting go when someone has been a part of your life for so long. Good luck to them both.

Whitney and Daughter Bobbi Kristina

Jennifer Lopez On The Cover InStyle Magazine

Following her 40th Birthday Jennifer Lopez is the cover of the September 2009 issue of InStyle Magazine. You know I love Jennifer so I wanted to share some exerts from the interview and make sure you pick up the issue... above is the cover to help you find it quicker... Hehe!
Jennifer speaks about her marraige: “I’m still figuring it out as I go along. How do two totally different people come together and make one life and say they’ll do it forever and ever? I mean, I’ve tried it. This is my third time. I don’t even think I tried in my other marriages, which was immature and not knowing better. It’s been a lot of hard experiences and a lot of ups and downs and a lot of mistakes. I believe that in life you learn through experience. I’m old enough to know now that relationships take work. That it’s not an easy thing.”
Jennifer speaks about her fears: “I like the quiet, but I don’t like the dark. We have everything on dimmers, so I kind of trick myself into the darkness. Marc always turns off the lights after he comes to bed. I’m usually sleeping — or he waits till I fall asleep and then turns them off.”

Oprah Season Opening with Whitney Houston


SEPTEMBER 14th is the big day! Oprah will premiere her 24th season of the Oprah Show with HIGHLY anticipated guest, Whitney Houston! I know we all can't wait.

Go Whitney!!! Love you.

Listen as Lil Wayne confirm Lauren London having his baby.

Celine Dion Pregnant With Second Child

Can I tell you how I love this woman! As a child and even up until today I listen to her music and her songs/voice and emotion in her music many times brings me to tears. Congratulations to Celine Dion, 41 as she is pregnant with her second child with husband Rene. Celine comes from a family of 14 and has always expressed wanting more children. A rep for the 41-year-old singer confirmed the news to various outlets saying, "Celine and René are very happy," and "They are crazy in love over the news and ... they are overjoyed." I am sure they are. Celine just found out she is pregnant on Monday. I wish her a healthy pregnancy and new born baby. This will probably delay her scheduled return to Las Vegas again for 2010.... but with the sales she brings in.. I'm sure they will accomodate her. I would love to see her in Vegas.

NYPD Fear Violence At 50 Cent Community Event

50 Cent is getting some resistance from the Queens officials surrounding his event to be held August 30th. Officials say they fear violence being brought and don't want inoccent people harmed. Since 50 will be performing on the 29th at Six Flags in New Jersey he decided to have a charity event the next day at PS-30 school yard in the South Jamaica neighborhood. 50 discusses his intent... “Everybody’s gonna be there, you need to stop by there and come hang out with us. it’s gonna be a whole lot of festivities and games going on, a lot of educational stuff at the same time,” He goes on, "We will have people from the DMV, there if you don’t have your drivers or permits and stuff like that you can come do that. The clinics all kind of stuff, if you are there you can come fix it.” Great gesture on 50's part however, official voice their concerns... “Someone's gonna try to make a name for themselves," an anonymous official told the NY Post. "They're gonna take a shot at him, and they're either gonna hit him or they're gonna miss him and hit some poor, innocent kid or grandmother.” It is being said that the concern stems from 50's past beefs in the streets and the still unsolved shooting of 50 Cent back in 2000. Hmmm... sounds to me like the event will still take place but the officials had to voice their side to this... they did and now plan to take the neccesary precautions. Hope it's a successful day!

President Obama Snubbed By Russian Politicians

Shout out to @Deap215 he sent me this video and then I looked it up on youtube and it was actually posted a month ago and maybe we are late but I had not seen this on the news or anything. But our PRESIDENT recently visited Russia and this was the "greeting" line he was exposed to. I can not imagine what Obama was even thinking as this was happening... but as always... he showcases class as he continued to extend his hand to every last one of the Russian Politicians and not one of them showed him any respect. Crazy how this world needs serious prayer. I can't wait to hear all the excuses about this act.



How about I read a comment from someone saying No, Obama was just pointing people out to the other gentleman like introducing... are you kidding me!! I knew the excuses would be rediculous. Obama was clearly extending his hand... it is all over his face that he didn't know what to do but keep trying.

I have twin sons who are 3 and a son who is 19, and I want the opportunity to meet their children.”

Update on Vibe Magazine

As I blogged about in June Vibe magazine had to shut its doors due to the economy and sales not being enough to keep the magazine going. There was rumor of it becoming an online magazine. Well looks like that is just what's going to happen. Get ready for a re-launching of Vibe Magazine as InterMedia Partners have confirmed their purchase of the defunct company’s assets. “Vibe is the preeminent brand in R&B and Hip-Hop. We feel privileged to purchase and resurrect such a storied brand,” explained David Koff, a Senior Partner at InterMedia Partners. “Together with the re-launch of Soul Train this fall and the rapid expansion of Uptown Magazine, a reinvigorated Vibe enables us to serve a broad spectrum of the African American audience with high quality entertainment and information." With it's already established name recognition the new owners are hoping to bring Vibe back to the success it had in the 90's. Vibe.com is set to officially re-launch in November or December 2009.

Nia Long Posses for Peta Ad

The add makes the statement that Nia would rather go naked than wear fur. From what I understand this photo is actually photoshopped and airbrushed but never the less, Nia looks good. Nia is now 39 years old and has a son. She explains her feeling about wearing fur...

“In being a responsible adult and really understanding what happens for one fur coat and how many animals are killed and slaughtered for one fur coat, it just isn’t worth it to me.
When I became a mother, I started to really understand the importance of all living creatures in a way that I didn’t ever think about before. And I’ve realized how important it is that we really take responsibility for … treating animals with love and care just like we would any human being. There’s no difference, in my opinion, [between fur and] slavery or the Holocaust. It’s just that we’re not dealing with human beings, we’re dealing with animals, but it’s still a living thing.”

Always nice to see sisters promoting something together. Beyonce and Solange were in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan on Monday at the Tokyo Disneyland hotel promoting Samantha Thavasa & Disney Collection which they both have been the face of Thavasa bags and accessories since 2008. I like Beyonce's dress and I am loving the skirt Solange has on.

Oprah Hanging Out With Jay Z


People probably thought you would never see the day Oprah would be seen out with a rapper... but of all of them... why wouldn't it be Jay Z. Lol... From what I've seen she loves Beyonce so I would think she has had opportunities to meet Jay Z and get a feel for who he is behind the rap. Oprah was interviewing JayZ for an upcoming feature in O Magazine. Jay was showing Oprah around his old stomping grounds so she could have a better sense of where he comes from. These photos were taken outside Jay Z's grandmothers house. I would love to see Oprah do a show with Jay Z as a guest. It's good to see her taking an interest. She did an interview with best friend Gayle King and is quoted, “I have some disagreements with the music. But I love him,” Oprah explained. “He was so charming and delightful and he smelled so good. It’s that kinda thing where you hug a guy and his scent is buried in him.” (Ok Oprah! Lol) She goes on to tell Gayle “Everyone says how smart he is. He’s really gifted and talented,” she stated. “At the end of the day, I felt that I made a friend.” Awww so nice! I will definately read this issue of O Magazine.

Oh I found the audio on youtube... it is soo funny to hear Oprah giddy over Hov Lol.

Taraji Henson Posing for Men's Fitness Magazine


Now you know this is my girl! Taraji looks great in her pics. She is killing the game with these! Lol During the Photo Shoot for Men's Fitness Magazine she also speak about dating... I agree with everything. Tell 'em Taraji!
Have a Gentleman’s Touch “A woman is gentle, soft, delicate, and a man’s position is to protect her-help her up stairs, make sure she’s in the car safely first. Take good care of your woman, and the sky’s the limit!”
Avoid Mama Drama “Date a woman with children only if you are ready to man up, because it’s a position that comes with responsibility. If you don’t want anything too serious, then stay with women with no kids.”
Keep in Touch-Even WhenYou’re Out With the Boys “The worst excuse you could ever use is, ‘My phone broke.’ Did the 10 other people you were with not have phones? Just make it happen. Even the Bat Cave has a phone!” (AMEN!)
Be Her Safety Net “When I meet a person and that chemistry is there, I cannot hide the electricity. I need to learn more about him, and once I feel safe, I’m gone, I’m in love, and I give it my all!” (EXACTLY)

Detriot Man Accused of Threatening Celebrities

This is scary. A Detroit man has been arrested for sending threats to stars that include Jay-Z and Beyonce. Leon Desmond Barrett allegedly wrote more than a dozen letters between December 2006 and April 2009 and sent them to celebrities including former NFL star Jerome Bettis. According to police some of these letters include threats of violence. At this point Barrett denies the allegations. Hmmm... we shall see. Random thought: Don't they look cute in the pic I posted??!!
