Some critics said "Idlewild is the worst hip-hop musical since the debacle of a film Carmen: A Hip-Hopera. The film is far from “wild” and more like a “mild”, less entertaining version of Harlem Nights meets Life." while others said "Here's the good news," the film "has all the wit and creativity of [OutKast's] music videos. And here's the bad news: That makes it at least an hour too long." It looks like that was the overall feeling at the box office this weekend as "IdleWild" debuted at No. 9 with $5.9 million. As you all know it only goes down hill from here. Sorry Outkast, sometimes people just dont get it, I know I didnt. But we all still love the music, so please keep that coming.FULL STORY
Damn that Foxxy, she just won’t do right for anything. I personally find her story the most tragic of all the female rappers. It’s bad enough that she is currently in a legal matter(s) over the alleged beat down she served at some nail salon, and lets not forget the "terroristic threats" against her former personal assistant Rasheeda Ellis,but now the NYPost is reporting that she has been caught shoplifting. It’s just sad Foxxy, very sad indeed. FULL STORY
Its time for another round of “Sit The Hell Down”, I am your host LT and this week’s contestant is none other then the “candle in the wind” star himself, Mr. Elton John. Elton recently told the Rolling stone that he wants to work with Dr. Dre on a hip hop album. He is quoted as saying:” "I want to work with Pharrell, Timbaland, Snoop, Kanye, Eminem and just see what happens," John says in the Sept. 7 issue. "It may be a disaster, it could be fantastic, but you don't know until you try."
See what happens when we let people like Kevin Federline have a hand at hip hop? Every white person on the planet now wants to do it. Elton we love you for your contribution to music, one of my favorite movies is the Lion King, in part because you wrote some great songs for that film and though it pains me to say this, I’m going to have to tell you to “Sit The Hell Down Somewhere”. Aint nobody trying to hear you hip hop nothing!!! FULL STORY
Beyonce has sold over a 140 million records as an artist. Over half sold outside of America. 2500 responses for a petition on the internet (which really represents often the same people responding 2-3 times) go online with a petition regarding “Deja V u”, and it's national news? Think about that for a minute. 140 million records sold versus 2500 responses about a video. Does that really equate to a major concern? The answer is No!.......MORE FROM THE STATEMENT
It’s all a bunch of nonsense if you ask me. First off any publicist will tell you “there’s no such thing as bad press”, Matthew can release all the statements he wants, but it’s my opinion that someone associated with Beyonce Knowles Inc. is leaking these stories to the media to make for a media frenzy. MSNBC was the main news source to release the Beyoncé wedding news, and a news company that big won’t release a story without going through legal first. Secondly Beyoncé hasn’t sold 140 million albums worldwide, that is an total lie, albums sold under Destiny’s Child don’t count towards her solo success. And third Beyonce, though as successful as she has become, isn’t above a sophomore jinx. It’s just all a bunch of nonsense to me.
Speaking of nonsense…..

Now that Gnarls Barkley's new album "St. Elsewhere" is certified platinum, they can really celebrate, but something tells me they already have been. I got a look at the Rap duo's concert rider fromThe Smoking Gun and by the list it looks like they can set it off on the stage as well as in back of it. According to the rider,one dressing room must be outfitted with a box of Magnum condoms, Swisher Sweets blunts, and bottles of Hennessy and Grey Goose.The rider doesnt specify which half of the the group requests the above mentioned items, but if I had to predict anyone, it would be Cee Lo.FULL STORY GNARLS BARKLEY OFFICIAL SITE

Danity Kane's newly released self-titled debut is the fastest selling album in the U.S., with 90,000 CD's sold on its first day in stores. To the surprise of music industry watchers, the Danity Kane is competing successfully with new offerings from proven popular artists such as Outkast and Christina Aguilera. Despite a lack of radio play, fans of the Bad Boy Records R&B group buzzed the singers' single online, making "Show Stopper" one of the most streamed songs on MySpace, with almost five and a half million plays. The full length album is currently the top seller on iTunes.FULL STORY

I was just talking to a coworker of mine who ran through my office door in a mild panic asking me what I knew about Kanye West marrying his girlfriend Alexis. I told her what I had read, but she looked at me with her eyes squinted, asking me “what do you really know”. I told her that was all that
I had heard about the situation and that’s when she told me people are saying homo things about Kanye. I immediately told her Kanye West = No Homo. I don’t get that vibe when I look at him; when I watch his interviews, or his flashy persona. Is he a cocky bastard? Absolutely! But no homo.
Then later on today I go to one of my favorite sites mediatakeout.com and I realized where the question my coworker asked me originated.
Media is reporting that Kanye West and John Legend have an “oddly close relationship”. They go onto report that when Kanye got word that mediatakeout were working on an Exclusive exposé about his sexuality, he quickly got engaged.
Let’s not go off the deep end mediatkeout, I mean really I don’t see a homosexual when I see Kanye. Farnzworth Bently, yes, John Legend maybe, but Kanye, nah I just don’t see it.
But Speaking of Homo....
We’ve all heard for years by the fabulous Wendy Williams, about Puffy’s “sausage loving” ways (read between the lines). But now some very suspect pictures have emerged that perhaps might in fact back up her allegations. Indiescent.com has pictures of Puffy, which are obviously older photos, in compromising homo erotic positions.
I have been as tasteful as I can in expressing my thoughts about Puff and his entire situation(s). At the end of the day the man is making his dough and that is to be commended. He's some how managed to still keep his popularity amongst an ever changing music industry, and though he doens't seem to be keeping up with the times with whack singing acts like "Cassie", Danity Kane(love you D. Woods, but it is what it is), and even himself, he's still contributing by keeping things "sexy". As far as the other stuff, well in my mind I’ve collected all the information, deliberated, and reached my own personal verdict, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out my assessment. If you cant fiugre out what I think, then look at these photo's, what do think I think? PUFFY PHOTOS
All these damn photos of celebrities leaking on the internet, let me tell you something, If I ever become a celebrity I might as well confess everything, because GOD knows I’ve been photographed doing some compromising sh*t that haters will post in a heartbeat. Well Keisha Cole is the latest celebrity victim of someone trying to hate on her game. The photo is very “call girl” esk, but other then that I don’t see anything scandalous about it. If anything she’s more appealing to me because I didn’t realize she’s got such a phat a*s. (kids it’s not appropriate to address a woman so distastefully) KEISHA COLE PICTURE
That damn Tyler Perry, anything he touches turns to platinum. TBS has signed Perry’s sitcom “House of Payne” to an exclusive 100 episode deal. The man who brought us the gun toting, feisty, quick to cuss you out, “Madea”, and who has also mastered the art of bringing big box office revenue with extremely small budgets is now turning his ambitions to television. In an unusual deal with TBS “House of Payne” will start its first “official” season in June 2007. Normally, syndicated sitcoms are already successful shows like “Friends” or “Seinfeld.” But Perry financed 10 episodes on his own last year and did a test-run in 10 cities, including Atlanta on TBS in June and July. I got a chance to watch the premiere episode, and I have to say that I wasn’t impressed, if anything I was bored, but as long as it appeals to the masses, then the hell with what I think. Congragulations to Tyler, who continues to do his thing. FULL STORY
This is just my opinion, but after watching Big Boi, Scar and Janelle Monae on TRL (while Andre 3000 watched from the sidelines), and getting an exclusive sneak peak of “IdleWild”, I am convinced that Outkast is no longer. I could be wrong, but the vibe just seems to be off, the body language and everything is off. I'm going to love the music until I die, but something tells me Outkast wont be making new music anytime soon. But make sure you go to see the movie this weekend.

This legendary soul man is extremely well known in black communities across the country. In his prime, he had a string of platinum hits and women flocked to his sold-out concerts. He became a household name and he became wealthy in the process. He has been guarded regarding his personal life and he has never discussed his children.
What fans don't know: This man has a frightening dark side and that's why he surrounds himself with scandalous women (mainly street hookers or female ex-cons) because if they went to the police on him, it's doubtful anyone would take their word over his.
This man has beaten women so brutally through the years, it's surprising that he hasn't killed a woman. Only once, did a magazine (Jet) report on a domestic violence incident regarding him. To appease his family, he married a church woman from his hometown. On the night of the wedding, he presented her with diamond earrings (heir looms) from a close relative.
She thought she had married her prince charming. The next morning, for no apparent reason, he started in on her and ended up punching her in the stomach and ripping off the earrings from her ears, leaving her ear lobes bloody in the process. The unprovoked beatings would continue and she lived in fear of her life. She would escape while he was out on the road. This singer has also had run-in's with other artists. One of his background singers got a message regarding a family emergency, when he told the singer, he had to leave the tour because one of his parents was gravely ill, the singer said, you "leave and you're fired." The background singer was stunned but quit on the spot. A soul group who once opened for him, stole the show, in return, he did everything in his power to sabotage them. He made their lives so miserable, they quit the tour. This man is so complexed, he reads the bible and prays constantly despite his demons. Hint: This man is "NOT" James Brown or R. Kelly.
KIM PORTER "BEST BABY'S MOTHER OF THE MILLENNIMUM"!!!!
Hands down Kim Porter should be given a trophy for “Best Baby’s Mother of the Millennium”. If you thought she was financially set, with having Christian, the second heir to Bad Boy Records, and Sean John clothing, then she is doubly set now that it’s been confirmed by Sandra Rose that she is having Puffy’s twin girls, that’s right Kim is pregnant with twin girls. Puff is reportedly "ecstatic" that his boo is having twins!
I’ve said it before that Kim Porter is legendary in the entertainment industry. She has successfully mastered the game when it comes to horizontal positioning (read between the lines) to get the finer things in life.
Kim Porter has never been a rookie when it came to being the girlfriend of a superstar. She came to NYC from Atlanta in the early 90's where she was a receptionist at the now defunct Uptown Records. At that time she was dating the hottest R&B artist of the moment AL B. Sure, they have a child together, but when AL B. Sure’s star started to descend she quickly locked horns on another rising superstar-now the world famous Sean “Puffy”, “P. Diddy”, “Diddy”, Combs.
Since giving birth to Christian, Kim has stood by while Puffy has continued to live his life as a bachelor. Puffy has dated Jennifer Lopez, and is rumored to now have another child (newborn) by someone here in Atlanta, but I haven’t investigated that enough to know the details (at the end of the day I have my own damn problems, and I can’t be searching this city for information on baby’s mothers, I’m not the National Inquirer). Kim has also stood by Puffy even when he (allegedly) wouldn’t pay up when it came to supporting her, and her children. There have been recent reports that Puffy has proposed to Kim and that they will soon wed, but don’t hold your breath on that one.

CBS is playing with a loaded weapon for their new season of Survivor. The hugely successful show, where they take contestants to a remote island to compete for a million dollar prize, has decided to “switch” things up this season by pitting races against each other. The will have a Asian Group, Hispanic Group, and African American Group, and Caucasian group(note I was very politically correct in describing the different ethnic groups) competing against each other for the top prize. They may think this new idea may give them the edge on reality TV, but I think this could severely back fire. It’s 2006 and though we have made progress in dealing with race relations, the idea of separating people by race and have them compete against one another makes me a bit uneasy The host Jeff Probst is calling it a "Social Experiment", but I don’t think it’s a good idea. If anything this may attract a lot of viewers, because although I have never watched Survivor, I’ll be watching it this season to see all what’s a doing.FULL STORY
Christina Aguilera leads a charge of debuts in the top five slots of The Billboard 200 with the double-disc RCA set "Back to Basics." The set sold 342,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, giving Aguilera her first No. 1 album since her 1999 self-titled debut. The first-week sales for "Back to Basics" are the most for a solo female artist since Mary J. Blige moved 727,000 in December with "The Breakthrough." Aguilera's current single, "Ain't No Other Man," has peaked at No. 8 on the Hot 100 thus far. Lyfe Jennings opens at No. 2 with his sophomore Columbia effort "The Phoenix," which sold 136,000 copies. The set also bows at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.FULL STORY

Here’s a kat I haven’t talked about in a long time, and that’s a good thing. I love what Lebron James is doing with his game and how he handles his personal life. You don’t hear anything about the 6”8, 240lb basketball star, and if you do it’s always something positive. It’s never anything negative that we can latch on to and dissect, well unless you count his mother and that DUI situation earlier this year, and even that was swept under the rug so fast that no one seemed to notice (but of course I did).
Lebron James was in Japan recently promoting his two new shoe designs by Nike. In a very candid interview, Lebron discusses his attempt to go global with his image, and how he plans on being the first billionaire athlete surpassing the much successful Michael Jordan.

The man who received the alleged “beat down” by Busta Rhymes is planning a civil lawsuit against the rapper, who still has failed to reach gold status with his newest album. Robert Lebron claims that he accident spit on the vehicle the lyricist was driving.
"Me and my friends were walking across the street. I spit on the street and it landed on a moving car. It was a Maybach. That car stopped, along with two black SUVs," the 19-year-old told The New York Times.

One of the most important parts of being a writer is having the inspiration to write. I get excited reporting news, and entertainment information, putting the “o1lt” spin on it to make it interesting, but when it comes to Beyoncé, Star and “Gal” I lose the inspiration to keep it attention-grabbing. Beyoncé’s reports are about to be banned from this site like I’ve banned Star Jones and Gal Reynolds gay rumors. It seems like I’ve been talking about Beyoncé everyday for at least a week and half, and frankly I am tired of talking about her. From the”Déjà vu”, and “Ring the Alarm’s” lack luster appeal to the masses, to her album “B-Day” receiving bad reviews, it’s all become too much and I’m done.
The latest report is that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are planning a three million dollar wedding in late November. Every body is talking about this rumor. In my car on my way to school this morning, that’s all the radio was talking about, and all I can do is sit back and look dumbfounded because has everyone forgotten how private Beyoncé is? Since when has she ever told anyone, anything about her personal life, especially when it involves her hip hop beau Jay-Z. People just grab a rumor and go full force with it, and its crazy. I know we here at the “Hot and Black Experience” contribute occasionally to the hysteria of the rumor mill, but we also keep it real on this site. And if I can keep it real for a moment, when Beyoncé and Jay make that move to become united in spirit and love and all that bullsh*t, something tells me we wont know much about it.FULL STORY

Irv Gotti is poised to sign a joint venture with Universal Motown for his Inc. Records. Gotti will ink a three-year deal with $10 million in advance for future revenues and payments of overhead expenses.

As you all know I love me some Janet, but dammit I have to say enough is enough. Janet keeps talking to the media about her 5 year relationship with Jermaine Dupri.At first it was nice to hear that she found someone, though Jermaine is the last person you would ever have expected Janet to be with (no disrespect Jermaine, but you know you’re a lucky bastard) I was happy to know that through all the her past rocky marriages (Renee Elizondo, and one of those damn Debarge brothers) that she could emerge and love again, “God I sound like a Hallmark Card”. But now that she has started talking about her sex life with Jermaine, I just want to tell her to shut the hell up. Janet recently told Vibe magazine:
"I love stripping because I know he loves it." Jackson adds, she'll try almost anything sexually with her man. "I'm way more open and I know that probably sounds crazy but he's taken me places I haven't been before.”
Am I the only one who gets the shivers just getting a mental picture of that? I miss my shy, reserved Janet who didn’t share those intimate details. It’s all a little bit creepy to me.
Dallas Austin tells eurweb that the cocaine incident that had him in a Dubai prison was blown way out of proportion.
“I wasn’t in prison, it was nothing like that,” he clarifies, adding that the facility where he was kept had plasma TVs and other creature comforts. “Knowing that I was gonna leave this place, I had one of the best experiences I could ever have.”
I wish could post my facial reactions when I read bullsh*t like this. This is exactly why I do what I do, because I have such a strong opinion, and my thinking isn’t any different from most. Let’s cut the crap, Dallas Austin was in a PRISON!!! I don’t care if they had Burberry sheets, diamond encrusted urinals, and was being served Cristal Champagne; he was confined and couldn’t leave the country over drug possession, nah scrach that, cocaine possession. My web-girl Sandra Rose (a well respected photographer here in Atlanta) posted an article on her website blowing the lid off the entire Dallas Austin cover up formed by members of his camp, so please Dallas cut the bullsh*t. Dallas can dance around the issue all he wants, but he and Whitney have the same drug of choice(allegedly).

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, I love mediatakeout.com. Their reporting is so dramatic, and if you read any of their exclusive’s, the way they can make a glass of spilled milk, more then just a glass of spilled milk is truly hilarious to me. I read their site daily, and I know they read mine (how you doing, media).
Mediatakeout.com is reporting that due to two mediocre singles from Ms. Beyoncé Knowles that her father and manager Matthew Knowles is trying to have the album delayed to rework tracks and make the album more marketable. Though the article makes for an interesting read, I don’t see this happening. Record labels pay a lot of money to release an album, especially acts like Beyoncé. Her album is slated for release on September 5th which if you look at your calendar its less then 14 days away. To pull the album now would be a financially catastrophe, and Sony BMG has to know that. Let’s see what happens, but I seriously doubt it.FULL STORY

Yesterday I reported that Busta Rhymes was arrested over the weekend. Now there is more information on his situation. While in custody, the NYPD questioned Rhymes about the February murder of Ramirez, his bodyguard. It is Busta's refusal to cooperate with authorities that his lawyer says is the police's motivation for booking the rapper.
"He was eligible for a desk appearance ticket. But what happened here is that they put in the system as a payback," Leemon told reporters. However, police insist the charges were simply too serious to issue an immediate desk ticket.
Listen I know its really not respected to talk to the police, "popo", "pigs", whatever you want to call them, but it is what it is. To me if you know something, anything that will bring justice and peace to the Ramirez family then why not do so? Karma is a bitch, and the more he continues to avoid doing what is sensibly the right thing to do, won’t no good come to him.FULL STORY
What in the hell is this? Kevin Federline, Britney Spears husband, performed on the Teen Choice Awards last night? I’m speechless…. Why does everyone think, that just because they have embraced the hip hop culture by wearing baseball caps, timberland boots, and smoking weed, that they are in fact hip hop?* Note to be considered hip hop, you have to possess this little thing called talent. His performance was so bad that I can’t even form the words to formulate my thoughts. After shopping his independently produced album to every major record label, and ultimately being turned down, he has decided to distribute it on his newly formed and independently owned “Federation Records”. That right there is a major indication of how bad it has to be if no other label will touch it. CLICK HERE

First he was released on house arrest pending a new trial, then he was released from house arrest, but after prosecutors appealed that decision, the Louisiana higher court ruled over the lower court and now he is back on house arrest.

Myra Panache has another blind item for us, can you guess who it is??
This soul diva's career has cooled down and she is desperately trying to hang on to her marriage. Earlier this year, her husband asked for a divorce and she begged him to stay. He's having second thoughts about his decision to stay and he acts distant towards her. He seemed to be the perfect mate when her career was on fire, since it cooled off, he wants to move on. Despite her career shortcomings, she still struts around like a diva and she continues to order people around and scream at her background singers. Behind her back, people are whispering, "she's such an has been and everyone realizes it but her." If her husband does eventually divorce her, despite him having a career, expect him to ask for alimony because she stays financially aflot due to publishing rights.
