I’m Published!!! :::: Michael Jackson For the Soul: A Fanthology

31 January 2011 at 4:59 pm (Book Reviews, Campaigns, Celebrity, Entertainment, Movies, Music, Raves, Thank You's) (, , , , , , )


Some of you may remember that roughly just over a year ago I was approached by someone on here to publish my written piece on Michael Jackson.

When Michael Jackson passed on June 25, 2009 the entire WORLD mourned and there was a collective gasp of shock. I immediately took to my blog to write about what he meant to me. To my childhood. And what he meant to humanity as a whole.

A bit later a woman by the name of Lorette Luzajic wrote me expressing interest in my piece and wanted to know if I’d be interested in submitting it to a project she was going to be working on. She was compiling a “fanthology” of written works on the late King of Pop by bloggers, writers and fans such as myself.

I was of course, flattered and honoured to be included and told her I would LOVE to be a part of this. On January 9, 2011, I received an email saying the book was finished and ready. I haven’t received my copy as yet, so I can’t do a book review but as soon as I do, I will definitely be doing a write-up. I just wanted to share this with you all so that you may show love and support and purchase your own copy.

The book is available for purchase on Amazon.com. please click >>> here <<< to buy it now! It’s only $20.00 and $1 donations from each book sold will be going to the Kids Help Phone, keeping in spirit with Michael Jackson’s legacy and love for the children of the world.

Thank you, Lorette, for working so diligently to get this book completed. I also  thank you for including me in such a special project. Also, many thanks to Eliza Lo for the beautiful front cover artwork.

We still miss you, Michael. I hope your family and fans will find justice.

Big News! Suge Knight Arrested For the Death Of Tupac Shakur

29 December 2010 at 8:14 pm (Celebrity, Music, News, WTF!?) (, , , , , , , , )


UPDATE: Apparently this video is fake. I thought it was weird because of the 2 different news stories but I figured it was just bad editing on the part of the person that uploaded it. SMH. People have way too much time on their hands =/

This story is still developing but watch this:

Be sure to check back for updates! If this is true, they can go on ahead and throw the book at Suge Knight. Far as I’m concerned he didn’t just kill Pac, he killed hip hop.

R.I.P To the Legendary & Soulful Ms. Teena Marie

26 December 2010 at 9:59 pm (Celebrity, Entertainment, Music, Throwbacks, WTF!?) (, , , , , , , )


CNN has just confirmed what so many of us have been worried about on twitter for the past couple of hours. Teena Marie has died.

This story is still developing. Please check back.

May her family and loved ones be embraced by God’s love at this time. God bless her. Rest in Peace, homegirl.

 

UPDATE:

(CNN) — Teena Marie, a celebrated R&B singer-songwriter, was found dead Sunday at her California home, her manager said.

Born Mary Christine Brockert in Santa Monica, California, the 54-year-old artist famously paired with late funk legend Rick James and was nominated four times for a Grammy Award, according to her official website.

Marie was found dead by her daughter after apparently dying in her sleep, manager Mike Gardner said.

“Teena was a black voice trapped in a white body,” said Cathy Hughes, founder of Radio One, a broadcasting company that targets African-American and urban listeners. “I would always tell her that she was one of the greatest vocalists of our time.”

Among her songs were “Lovergirl,” “Portuguese Love,” “Ooo La La La,” and “I’m a Sucker for Your Love.”

While no cause of death has been released, the singer’s publicist Lynn Jeter said that Marie suffered a grand mal seizure — a neurological event, marked by loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions, according to the Mayo Clinic — a month ago.

“Luckily, someone was there,” Jeter said of that seizure. “The ambulance took her to the hospital, and on the way she had another seizure.”

The publicist said that she had a “great” conversation on Saturday with Marie, who told her that she was excited about heading to Atlanta to perform this week — in what would have been her first performance since the seizure.

Marie sang under various record labels, including Motown, Epic and Cash Money Classics, since bursting on the scene as a 19-year-old, according to her website. Her most recent album, Sapphire, features collaborations with Smokey Robinson, Kurupt and Gerald Albright.

Eddie Levert, founder of the vocal group The O’Jays, praised Marie as both a singer and mother.

“There are a lot of black people who swore by her and believed in her, as far as her music was concerned,” he said. “She was a good mom, and to me, that is saying a lot.” SOURCE

Lyfe Jennings Back In Jail

23 September 2010 at 2:26 pm (Celebrity, Entertainment, Music, Videos, WTF!?) (, , , , , , )


R&B singer/songwriter Lyfe Jennings was apparently sentenced today (Sept. 22) to three-and-a-half years in prison for a case in which he drove drunk and shot in the air after an argument with his baby mama and former manager, Joy.

His sentence allegedly started today in Cobb County. After his sentencing, Lyfe reported requested a trip home to say goodbye to his children, which was denied by the judge.

In case you weren’t aware, Lyfe Jennings shot to fame after completing a 10-year life sentence at the age of 19. So, unfortunately, this is round two for the talented artist.

A call to Cobb County jail wasn’t returned and the label wouldn’t confirm the situation.

In the meantime, check out Lyfe’s latest vid for the very emotional and pertinent track “If Tomorrow Never Comes.” Source

Chris Brown On BET

28 June 2010 at 10:56 am (Celebrity, Entertainment, Music, Videos) (, , , , , , , , , , )


The internet was ablaze last night with talk of Chris Brown’s performance and tribute to the late legend Michael Jackson. There is NO ONE in entertainment today more fitting to do this tribute (and do it RIGHT) than Chris Brown. In all honesty, it should’ve been done last year but ….well … we all know what happened. This year, Chris had a chance to tribute HIS idol. And man, he did an AMAZING job. It was on point, it was heartfelt and while there’s NO doubt in my MIND his PR team and BET set it up that way, I believe in my HEART that the emotion that came during the end was real. The heavy symbolism last night would make anyone emotional. I truly feel CB is sorry for what he did and he’s worked hard to try and move on. He deserves another chance. The media killed Michael Jackson and they did a hell of a job trying to kill Chris. The lyrics for Man In the Mirror would break any man down given what Chris has gone through to redeem himself and his name. He never said he was innocent of what he did but he definitely said he wanted to be rid of the past and move on. BET was giving him that chance to move on and you add all that onto having the HONOUR to tribute the King of Pop? Let that man have his moment. I don’t think for a second he was crying for show. He was crying as much for his situation as he was for a legend gone too soon. And I could care less if anyone agrees with me. This is just my take on it. Chris Brown won back the hearts of many last night. And for fans like myself who never left, we love you even more, boo.

If you missed the performance, here is a youtube of it. Many are being taken down quickly so once it’s gone, it’s gone. But enjoy if you get to see it:

Hoe to Housewife Back To Hoe – Kendra Wilkinson Sex Tape Trailer

26 May 2010 at 8:34 pm (#Kanyeshrug, Celebrity, Entertainment, Funny Things, Oh You So Nasty!, Videos, Why Is This News?, WTF!?) (, , , , , , , , )


If you want to see the trailer for Kendra Wilkinson’s Sex Tape then click her pic below:

P.S. Please be advised the trailer is most definitely NSFW!

Hank Baskett LOSES. WHY did he wife her? I mean, sure people can change but rumour has it she’s the one that was actively shopping this tape around Hollywood before she met him and tried to hide it from him. AND, apparently, there is a SECOND tape being shopped. WTH!? Is her new found love and family worth some more MONEY!? Fame comes with such an ugly price but if the rumours are true then she did this to herself. She made her bed, now she can lay in it. Pun absolutely intended.

What say you, readers? Can a hoe really be turned into a housewife?

50 Drops About 60

26 May 2010 at 8:01 pm (#Kanyeshrug, Celebrity, Entertainment, Movies, WTF!?) (, , , , , , )


GOTDAMN. 50 doesn’t even LOOK like himself upon first glance!

This second picture almost looks photoshopped …

50 Cent lost a lot of weight for his upcoming movie “Things Fall Apart”. In the movie 50 Cent plays a football player diagnosed with cancer. He dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks.

“I was starving.” Now he’s back on tour and says, “I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time!”
