O1LT.COM "HOT AND BLACK" NEWS RECAP-JAY-Z/THE GAME/JANET/TYLER PERRY/FOR SISTERS ONLY/BOW WOW/PUFF DADDY!!!!!
This weekend was one of those weekends where I didn’t have one moment to myself. I spent the entire weekend at Atlanta’s annual “For Sisters Only”, a large trade show where over 300 exhibitors come to sell, display and sample their products to the public. Atlanta’s own V103, a popular radio station was instrumental in the getting the people involved. This year an estimated 26,000 people came out to engage with their favorite On Air Personalities, check out the hottest performances from Ciara, TI, Heather Hedley, Chingy, Tyrese, Rueben Studdard, Monica, JD, and many more, and check out interesting vendor(s) who were selling almost any and everything. This was my second year in attendance and I had a great time just being a fly on the wall. If you’re in Atlanta and you missed it this year, you need to look out for this momentous event next year, and if you’re not in this city, look for something like it in your area. It’s a great family fun time. As you know I am a reporter by nature, and with all the celebrities I was sure something was going to pop off so that I could bring you something salacious, but I have to admit there was nothing to report. It was just a fantastic time.
Myra Panache has a blind item for us, can you guess who it is?
This black male singer is so talented with superstar potential but his demons keep holding him back as he continues to struggle with drug abuse and 'closeted' homosexuality. He is so unreliable in regard to his career that promoters are reluctant to book him. His representatives say his depression is so severe, that he's currently having suicidal thoughts.
Janet Jackson talks to Billboard.com and she doesn’t hold back on any questions asked. Though the questions were very tongue and cheek, it’s still a pretty interesting read. I was over Janet the week before last, but with her new video where she is bringing sexy back (I know, I know that saying has being overused). I am now back on the Janet Train.FULL STORY
Damn, after three weeks on the Billboard Album Charts Outkast’s “IdleWild” has yet to go gold. The Prohibition-era American South inspired album debuted at number two, and is slowing trickling down the charts with its current position at number 12. This is a first for the extremely successful southern hip hop enthused group. Their last album Speakerboxx/The Love Below was certified diamonds by the RIAA. It’s looking like this album is going to be a flop.FULL CHART
Shout out to Sandra Rose for bringing the new single from Bow Wow feat. Chris Brown the masses. I heard this single on the radio on Friday. But I have one question, how many show boxes are they going to have Bow Wow stand on when they shoot the video. Chris Brown is 6"1/6"2 and Bow Wow is 5"7/5"8. Its going to be pretty interesting.Shorty Like Mine
Now you all know I respect Jay-Z alot but that cant get in the way of what I do. This picture is straight up ugly! This is a face only a mother could love. My question is why in the hell would he allow them to publish this picture? I hate to say this, I really do but I got to quote a verse from Nas dis track "Ether" : "When KRS already made an album called Blueprint
First, Biggie's ya man, then you got the nerve to say that you better than Big
D*ck suckin lips, whyn't you let the late, great veteran live"(Dont look at me like that,it is what it is!!)
After conflicting reports that Fat Joe's seventh release Me, Myself & I would drop either independently or through Virgin Records, SOHH has learned that the album will emerge via a mix of independent and major label partners within EMI Music.FULL STORY
Im so over The Game getting his album pushed back. First it was 6/6/06, then it was 11/07/06 and now it’s being pushed back again to 11/14/07. It’s not looking good at all for The Game. His new single “One Blood” is getting little to no airplay. Does 50 cent have the power to shut The Game down?? I don’t know, but its looking to be that way.FULL STORY
Can we say scraping the bottom of the endorsement deal barrel? Letoya Jackson is now the spokesperson for “Star Ice” an Australian beer product. All I can say is wow!FULL STORY
Tyler Perry has opened up in Atlanta Studio for his production deals.FULL STORY
Damn that Puffy Combs. His CD cover has just been released, and I got to tell you, this is looking to be the biggest bomb of his career. Have you even heard his new single anywhere on radio? I cant even think of the name of the damn song. Lets see if I'm right about this.
