O1LT.COM "HOT AND BLACK REPORT-CIARA/JOHNNY GILL/DIDDY/RICK FOXX/WENDY WILLIAMS/MONICA/MAXWELL/SAM JACKSON!!!!!
By L.T. Dinwiddie Are Micheal Elay and Ciara a couple? I don’t know all the details yet but I like it!! I can see them more as of a couple then I could see her and Bow Wow. There isn’t anything wrong with Bow Wow but, when I would seem them as a couple something about them just didn’t make sense to me. Maybe it was the extreme height difference? I don’t know—but either way I like it. FULL STORY You know what? Damn that Rick Fox—how are you going to leave that supple, sensual, beautiful woman Vanessa Willimas—the mother of your children for a rail thin, pasty skinned Sharon Stone, are you f*ing kidding me? Tmz.com is reporting that according to their extremely reliable sources Sharon Stone and Rick Fox are in fact a couple. The whole idea just turns my stomach! Damn you Rick..and Vanessa if you need some consoling, holla at ya man! FULL STORY I’ve finally found The Wendy Williams Experience on the internet and DAMN was it a struggle. If I had to tell to how many websites I had to search to bring this to you all –you’re lucky I love you like cooked food. If you watched the show this Friday @ 11:30 then you saw it was going DOWN between Charlamagne and Andrew Dice Clay. They were going at it for at least 60 seconds which on television is long time. Wendy (true to form) sat back and let it go down until she looked bored and stepped in to get the interview over. I am telling you all do not sleep on this show, its perfect “gangsta TV” right before you go out for the night to get into trouble. Try to watch this clip quickly because I am sure I will get a cease and desist letter from the powers that be over at VH1! We haven’t heard from Sam Jackson in a minute and when we hear from him he’s talking the same ole sh*t. I n a recent interview with Playboy magazine, Sam is still expressing his distain for rappers wh o decide they want to act. "I have this thi ng about acting being a craft, something some of us spent time learning to do," Jackson tells Playboy magazine in its December issue. "When they ask me to validate the career of somebody who comes from another venue by co-starring in a film with him, the No. 1 insult is to say this other person is the actual star of the film." The man has a point but he has already expressed his views on this topic before. Get over it Sam! FULL STORY Ladies you better listen up, fellas you too—you would hate for this to happen to your chest (women) or your balls (men). FULL STORY Friend in my head Jawn Murray is reporting in the BV Buzz that Johnny Gill is the proud father of a new bouncing baby boy. His new son is 5 months old and lives in his hometown of Washington, D.C. I don’t care if Johnny has a thousand children he’s not fooling me! Everything about this news story is as suspicious as Star “Damn” Jones husband (make the connection). What—you know you’re thinking it too! FULL STORY One of the things I have had to learn about becoming a writer is to remain objective. There are times when I fail miserably but today I am not going to. Bobby Valentino’s new video has been released and though I have had my personal issues with the Webster of DTP I can’t hate on his new single, its good! I personally feel that’s when you know you got something hot—because no matter how much somebody wants to hate on you—they just can’t. When I first heard “Don’t Turn the Page” on the radio I didn’t know who was singing it and I instantly starting moving my lips to the chorus. It definitely reflects Bobby’s growth as a vocalist. Good job Bobby!! Well look who's come back from the dead—neo soul artist Maxwell. At the height of his popularity Maxwell abruptly disappeared. The word orginally was that he was working on a trilogy album but when nothing seemed surface, we as his fans have moved on. I won't even begin to go into details about what the steets are saying about the alternative singer. In away I am excited and still somewhat interested in his music but, a small part of me doesn’t really care. Whether you’re a fan or not—his talent is unparallel and it’s my opinion that his absence has allowed artists like John Legend to have a singing career. "Black Summer's Night" will be Maxwell's first release since 2001's "Now," which has sold 1.7 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan and spawned the singles "Lifetime," "This Wom an's Work" and "Get To Know Ya." FULL STORY Oh Lawd Irv Gotti has been given a reality show on VH1. After being investigated for three years by the federal government on charges of money laundering and acquitted, rap mogul Irv Gotti is now attempting a comeback with his label The Inc while also juggling his responsibilities as a husband and father. My verdict isn’t on this idea yet. It actually might be “must see TV”. I will keep you posted as I learn more about it! It’s time for another BillBoard/O1LT CD sales report to see who’s buying Bentleys and who’s buying Kia’s!!! Will Puffy’s new album Press Play remain in the top ten this week? My sources say don’t count on it. After coming in at number one with a disappoint 176K sold, this week it looks like nobody’s “Pressing Play” on Diddy’s musical project. I don’t care how much of spin his people are going to try and put on it—that’s a flop! Can you believe that after ten weeks on the charts Christina Aguilera new album Back To Basics has yet to go platinum? She hasn’t even gone gold!! I guess I wasn’t the only who wasn’t feel the 30-40’s inspired music. I’m sorry but I get very upset when everybody gets on Janet’s a*s for not selling albums when there a lot of other top-tier artists that aren’t selling albums either. Def-Jam’s southern golden boy Ludacris hasn’t brought a gold or platinum album yet. And that’s after they under minded Janet’s CD sales by dropping his Release Therapy album sales price to $6.99. I can’t talk about CD sales without talking about my girl Janet Jackson. Janet has fallen from number 2 on billboard—all the way down to number 28 in only 4 weeks. Though I hate to say it Janet’s over! You people just can’t absorb her anymore—and I say you people because I bought her album, I actually brought two. If I had to think of which artists has it the worse right now and is probably feeling the most pressure (don’t fool yourself she is)—is Snap Music queen herself Monica Arnold. After a making a tiny splash on the charts 3 weeks ago coming in at number 8, The Making of Me has plunged all the way down to number 48. That album fell faster the Nick Cannon could fall to his knees at board meeting (read between the lines). Look out for more CD information in Wednesday’s Billboard/O1LT report! FULL CHART LISTINGS My boy freezefiyah over at hhnlive.com put me on to this video. It's Dame Dash running off at the mouth about the demise of Rocafella Records. Listen--did what went down between the top moguls seem shady on Jay-Z's part? Yes! Does it look like money, power, and respect trumped their friendship? Yes! Is time for Dame to move on and stop bitchin about it ? HELL YES!!!
