    The Diddy publicity train isn’t slowing down anytime soon. He is on the new cover of Vibe magazine. I haven’t had a chance to read the article, but far be it from me to deny the Diddy fans of America a first look at the cover. Enjoy!!



    My Boy Freezefiyah from HHNlive sent me over this editorial that was written recently by a White American that really hits hard. I am cautioning you now that this article might hit make you angry. It's a heavy piece but in a lot of ways it’s the truth. As a people we still just don’t get it, but the sad part about it is that White people see we don’t get it, so what are we going to do about it??

    Read a F**king Book!

    Help prove them wrong! Read and pass on.

    THEY ARE STILL OUR SLAVES We can continue to reap profits from the Blacks without the effort of physical slavery Look at the current methods of containment that they use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.

    Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once said, "The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in a book." We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the opportunity to read any book on any subject through the efforts of their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are numerous books readily available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.com, Not to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid blueprints to reach economic equality (which should have been their fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all.

    GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their disposal. Last year they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas, Out of their 450 billion dollars in total yearly income (2.22%).

    Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture we care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it. Being primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed. They continually want more, with little thought for saving or investing.

    They would rather buy some new sneaker than invest in starting a business. Some even neglect their children to have the latest Tommy or FUBU, And they still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house gives them "Status" or that they have achieved their Dream. They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty because their greed holds them back from collectively making better communities.

    With the help of BET, and the rest of their black media that often broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue to see huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike. (Tommy Hilfiger has even jeered them, saying he doesn't want their money, and look at how the fools spend more with him than ever before!). They'll continue to show off to each other while we build solid communities with the profits from our businesses that we market to them.

    SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the major ways we can continue to contain them. One of their own, Dubois said that there was an innate division in their culture. A "Talented Tenth" he called it. He was correct in his deduction that there are segments of their culture that has achieved some "form" of success. However, that segment missed the fullness of his work. They didn't read that the "Talented Tenth" was then responsible to aid The Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life. Instead, that segment has created another class, a Buppie class that looks down on their people Or aids them in a condescending manner. They will never achieve what we have. Their selfishness does not allow them to be able to work together on any project or endeavor of substance. When they do get together, their selfishness lets their egos get in the way of their goal Their so-called help organizations seem to only want to promote their name without making any real change in their community.

    They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels, and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best speakers, not to the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness? They steadfastly refuse to see that TOGETHER EACH ACHIEVES MORE (TEAM)

    They do not understand that they are no better than each other because of what they own, as a matter of fact, most of those Buppies Are but one or two pay checks away from poverty. All of which is under the control of our pens in our offices and our rooms. Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to read, continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are "helping" their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little other than hold lavish conventions in our hotels. By the way, don't worry about any of them reading this letter, remember, 'THEY DON'T READ!!!!

    I’m sure that I am not the only one who has mixed feelings about Jay-Z coming back after announcing retirement, But this new track from “Kingdome Come” is hot. It’s called “Show Me What You Got”. I personally don’t think he’s fallen off that much. He is a lot better then I initially thought he would be. Just Blaze is doing his thing on that track, I’m feeling the saxophone and drums in the background.

    Damn that T.I. for pulling on my heart strings. He may try to come off as a real hard type of dude, but underneath that 5'7 frame lies the heart of a really nice guy. He proved it recently when he decided to meet one of his fan(s) through the Make-A-Wish foundation.

    15-year-old Sara Labare suffers from an autoimmune disorder. She along with her family received gifts from T.I., including a digital camera, CDs, and signed posters, and sat front row during T.I.'s Orlando performance. Good for you T.I. keep it up!! This almost makes me forget about that MTV's "Punked" episode, when you started to punk out as the fake cops tried to trap you...I said almost!

    Shout out to Amanda from Atlantic Records for the pics.

    I can’t decide if this is a good thing or what, but Beyoncé is releasing a third single in a three month time frame. First it was “Déjà Vu” then there was “Ring the Alarm” and now it’s “Irreplaceable”. Can you say overexposed??

    Though I like the video, Beyonce isnt allowing us to miss her or even yearn for another video. "Ring The Alarm" cant be 6 weeks old and she's already off to the next single. Beyonce seems to be every damn place, all the damn time. She looks great and I'm loving the horse hair (sorry I couldnt resist), but I'm even over that. Even the gay’s are over her and they love them some “B”!! Just imagine, in a month and a half we’re all going to be in Beyoncé mania all over again with that damn “DreamGirls” movie and soundtrack. Oh well I digress..Here’s the video, enjoy!

    Speaking of DreamGirls……

    I got an exclusive track from the new movie "DreamGirls" with former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson. She will be along side Jaime Foxx, Eddie Murphy and of course Beyoncé Knowles for what everyone is hoping to be the movie of the year. “And I Am Telling You” which was made famous by Mrs. Jennifer Holiday is now getting new life with Miss Jennifer Hudson. I could barely contain my excitement as I typed this up. Jennifer is tearing this song up!! Before you leave this site, check out this song. Beyoncé you better watch out, that girl can sang!!! Jennifer Hudson"And I Am Telling You"
    **I got a cease and desist email from the powers that be over at Dreamworks Studios, so if the file isnt available anymore then you know why. But if you really want to hear it there are other ways, if you know what I'm saying and I think you do!!


    Now you know it's not a Friday without Myra Panache's blind items, can you guess who they are? Oh and by the way, please stop emailing me asking me who they are. That's what makes them "Blind Items"!! You wont get me caught up in a lawsuit over some nonsense.Just post who you think it is in the "comments section", Good Luck!

    BLIND ITEM #1:

    At her peak, this black female singer had it all. A lucrative career, fame, platinum albums and awards. What few people know, between scandal and marriages, she was involved with a few mob related guys in Las Vegas and they took very good care of her. It's been rumored, between concert tours and ongoing drama, she resided in a luxurious Las Vegas suite, paid for by one of her "goodfellas." Despite her many pitfalls, she has never had money problems because her "wiseguys" advice her on investments. It's a good reason they look after her, when you figure that out, you will know her identity.

    BLIND ITEM #2:

    She's at it again...This non-black female is married to a black sports superstar. A few years ago, she wanted her non-black friends to experience a rich and glamorous lifestyle, similar to hers. She decided to set them up on dates with her husband's teammates, single and married-with a stipulation (only if the married ones were married to black women) because she has a total disregard and disrespect for black women. Needless to say, she was shut-down, early on, by a black woman. Now, we are receiving word, she is back at it, discreetly. She is determined to marry her friends off to rich sports figures or have them become mistresses at the right price. The irony of this situation, her husband is currently having an affair with a beautiful African-American woman.

    There are more blind items, cover story's and much much more on panachereport.com. Stop by my girls site and check her out. I hold Myra in high regard. I can only hope to be as popular and well known as she is in my career.

    My prayers go out to Cassidy. It was reported yesterday that rapper Cassidy was in terrible car accident that has him in critical condition. According to AHH.com the details are sketchy, but the rapper was reportedly leaving New Jersey for a recording studio, when a truck swerved into oncoming traffic and crashed into Cassidy's side of the SUV he was riding in.
    "He was the only one that suffered critical injuries," a representative for Cassidy's label Sony/BMG told AllHipHop.com. "[He suffered] a fractured skull and broken bones on the left side of his face." FULL STORY

    Call me uncultured, but I don’t know who the hell Cleopatra Jones is. As a young child I remember my parents watching her films, but I have no idea what her impact was on African-American culture. I know a lot of my readers do know who she is, so this post is for you. FULL STORY

    Another track has been released from Puffy’s “Press Play” album which hits stores on October 17, 2006. Now you all know I am not a fan of Diddy. Watching him try to compete or more appropiately keep up with todays music is like watching my dad get his ear's peirced at age 50, it doesn't make sense. But I have to admit that this track is the most bearable one that I have heard yet. I actually kinda like it (if anyone utter's one word of this to Puffy I will deny it to the end). The song is called “Tell Me” with Christina Aguilera. It’s got a lot of energy and I could add this to my Ipod work out mix. FULL STORY

    If you haven’t heard, DMX got ignorant at a concert recently. His performance was cut short and he flipped out by throwing a chair into the crowd. Find out more here. My bad for not reporting on it, hell sometimes there is so much news to report on that things slip through the cracks. Courtesy of nahright.com I got the video of DMX getting pissed and the fight breaking out. If you want to skip all the bullsh*t just go to the last 40 seconds of the video. Thats where the beat downs are being served.

    I am huge fan of Oprah Winfrey so when rappers decided to disrespect her I get really pissed off. So she doesn’t care for hip-hop, she’s 51 years old a lot of people don’t at that age. 50 cent has opened up this dumb a*s mouth to BET and the following ridicoulous statement.

    "Oprah's great. I just think the only misconception is that she's a Black woman. They say Oprah Winfrey's a Black woman, but she's [been] catering to a demographic of a middle-aged White woman for so long that I believe she's a middle-aged White woman."

    Though I am sure his thoughts are echoed by many in the black community, I personally love “The Oprah Winfrey Show”. She does more for the advancement of the human spirit, education the advancement of social awareness then anyone I know. If there is a heaven trust me she will be there. But something tells me that 50 cent will not!! Was that a little dramatic? I can sometimes go off the deep end.FULL STORY

    Don’t think we’ve forgotten about you R. Kelly because we haven’t!!! Friday. October 13, 2006 is the day we all get to see if you sink or swim in court. But if that wasn’t bad enough R. Kelly has another lawsuit to deal with. A disgruntled former employee has filed suit over a beat down that R. Kelly allegedly served him. Henry "Love" Vaughn said in the lawsuit that he had been a longtime "mentor and guide" to Kelly. FULL STORY I couldn resist with the photo. I just imagine him in that outfit while his cell mate, who I am assuming will be called Big Daddy or Knuckles, ties him to the bed and his way with him.

    Though I can’t tell you how I know, I can tell you that its official Deelishus wins “Flavor of Love” this season while New York is out, again! But don’t cry for New York Argentina because she is going to be on VH1’s new reality show “The Flavorette” which puts her in the decision making chair while men vie for her affection. HipandPop.com is talking about it so I will blame them if the VH1 lawyers come barking my way.HIPANDPOP.COM

    O1LT.com Billboard report..

    There is still no platinum album for Beyoncé after 4 weeks on the charts. She has also been knocked out of the top 10. I think that constitutes as a flop don’t you?? Capitol artist Chingy “quietly” released his album two weeks ago and its currently positioned at #23, so I know that’s going to be a flop. Christina A. is at # 28 and minus a Gold Plaque. My man Lupe Fiasco dropped from # 8 to #32 after just two week on the charts. Wow!! And everyone is on Janet’s ass.BILLBOARD CHARTS

    If you’re a Wendy Williams fan then I am sure you will want to know that she will coming to a city near you. I reported a few months ago that Wendy and Alize (Al Lizzz Ay) has teamed up together. Wendy is now their new spokesperson. She is also co-owner of the new George Vesselle Champagne. I have heard that her new Champagne line is really good, but currently it is only available in certain markets. I said all that to say that if you are in the following cities Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and NYC, you will have the opportunity to meet and greet with the famed loud mouth.(I say that with love, I’m loud too) Wendy's Website

    By now everyone has heard that Janet’s album debuted at number 2 this week on Billboard’s Hot 200 at the hands of Def Jam severely discounting Ludacris’s album to $5.99 to beat her. What you might not know is that this was Janet’s last album under Virgin which technically makes her a free agent. If this CD doesn’t do well it will be very hard for Janet to secure a valuable recording contract elsewhere. If you remember Mariah Carey’s situation, she got signed to Virgin for 80 million (or was it a 100 million), but when her “Glitter” album tanked she was dropped by Virgin and signed with Island Def Jam for a meager 20 million. It's also being reported that Virgin is very unhappy with Janet’s sales figures and JD himself might be in jeopardy of losing his job. Lets all see how this unfolds.

    My boi Freezefiyah's report:
    I gave everyone the worldwide numbers and I tried to tell ya'll but no one believed me besides my partner in crime LT at O1LT.com What's happenning my nucca.....Sorry ghetto moment. Anywayz,The numbers are in and it's not looking too good for Ms. Nasty and JD aka "Yall know who this is!. It doesn't help that Luda sold his CD as low as $5 from what LT said. From what I've seen on most sites The official numbers are Ludacris 309,000 & Janet Jackson 296,000. Most of you should know that this CD is the last one under Janet's Virgin contract. After this she's a free agent.From what Miss Info told me " She's turned down a bunch of lucrative deals, but from what I hear I don't see many labels picking her up again after this fiasco.FULL STORY

    Well here is a name we haven’t heard in a minute. Mediatakeout.com is reporting that Faith Evans is broke, three months pregnant and possibly on drugs. We all remember her arrest a couple of years ago in Atlanta, GA for drug possession. And I know we all remember her last semi hit “Again”, but after her album flopped, Faith seemed to vanish into obscurity. According to the salacious tabloid website Faith is on the verge of financial destruction but I personally believe that part of the story is exaggerated. Faith isn’t just living off her money, but she is also living off the money of The Notorious B.I.G. Lets not forget that at the time of his brutal murder he and Faith were married which means that his assets are her assets. Only time will tell us what’s really going on there. FULL STORY

    **I Just got this emailed to me, shout out to MP for hooking me up with this information: Faith Evans doesn't own biggie's publishing rights, Diddy does, he bought them from B.I.G. for just $50,000 when B.I.G. needed money. Faith is not that well off financially. Diddy also reaps money from B.I.G'S merchandise as well. Faith only got what was left in B.I.G.'S bank acct (s) and split it with his mother, that money is long gone.

    Lawd have mercy Eddie Murphy is up to his silly antics again. “Norbit” is his new movie that tells the story of a African-American baby who is reluctantly raised by Asians. I can’t really find out anything more on the film then that, but if you watch this movie trailer it will crack you up. If you enjoyed any of “The Nutty Professor” films then I think you are going to enjoy this one. Shout out to Concreteloop.com for finding this one.

    Random Rumor now confirmed...

    Janet admitted to Upscale Magazine in their November 2006 issue that she did in fact date Matthew McConaughey for a brief period of time before she began her current relationship with Jermaine.

    When word broke out that former co-owner of “The Source” Dave Mays and Ray Benzino were launching a new weekly publication “Hip Hop Weekly” or “The Truth” avid writers and readers were gearing up to this new magazine in their hands. It was advertised as an urban “Us Weekly” magazine. WBLS On air personality and “In Touch Weekly” columnist Wendy Williams and former Editor and Chief of “Vibe” magazine Mimi Valdez were on board to set it off, but just weeks before its debut Mimi Valdez has separated herself from the publication. Their hasn’t been any word on what Wendy Williams plans to do.

    What was looking to be a groundbreaking and interesting magazine is now starting to look more like a disaster. I do hope they can get it together over there. I would love to see this magazine out. FULL STORY

    The infamous jeweler “Jacob the Jeweler” are among 16 people indicted by a Michigan District Attorney in May for violating federal drug laws and laundering an excess of $270 million. Jacob is accused of accepting "dirty" money generated by Atlanta-based drug organization the Black Mafia Family (BMF) and giving them jewelry in return without reporting the transactions. According to The New York Daily News, twenty one of Jacob's high profile hip-hop clients including Kanye West, who were contacted by Vanity Fair's Nancy Jo Sales, refused to offer words of support for the infamous jeweler.

    I guess I wasn’t the only not watching Spike TV’s “Blade Trinity” because its been cancelled. Despite a successful launch, Spike TV has canceled the Blade television series which starred rapper Sticky Fingaz. Blade was Spike TV's first original scripted action-adventure series, which featured Sticky Fingaz as Blade, an immortal half-man made famous by actor Wesley Snipes in the movie of the same name.

    Power 106 recently sat down with Puffy and did a round of “The Hat”…Truthfully. He dished on everything from J-Lo, Aubrey from Danity Kane, and Busta Rhymes. Pretty interesting AUDIO INTERVIEW

    Since I have seen this same information on three other sites/blogs I won’t go into detail. Sleep Brown has a new album out. If you want to know more go here.

    Just so we are all clear I have heard the news report that Nas and Kelis may be doing a reality show, but I haven’t reported on it because, who cares?!?

    I love Tmz.com! They always have the hottest celebrity pictures and exclusive video(s). I love to watch celebrities getting denied from clubs, and restaurants in Hollywood. This time they have Bobby Brown getting denied from trendy celebrity patron restaurant “Hyde”. In this clip Bobby approaches the restaurant and the paparazzi are in full affect. At first Bobby loves the attention. He’s signing autographs and chatting with the common folk, but when he is denied access to restaurant bobby demands that the camera’s stop videotaping him. Of course the paparazzi refuse! VIDEO HERE

    Whose bright idea was it for Monica to release another whack single? Monica performed “A Dozen Roses” on “Regis and Kelly” recently and I have got to say her performance and the song is not even worth talking about.

    To be honest with you her first single was lame, but I just assumed that she was trying to pay homage Atlanta with the snap music thing. But now with this single it looks like my inner feelings are correct, it’s not even worth getting for free. Sorry Monica but it looks like your career is over. And we all know acting isn’t your thing, if you saw her on that MTV movie a few years back then you know what I am talking about.

    I wish people would stop with the Frenchie and Eva lesbian rumors. This picture which I know for a fact was taken for Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride event this year has been the source of all the speculation. This is why a lot of artists and top tier entertainers are very reluctant to take part in pride events. I think people really need to grow up!! It’s obviously an artistic photo taken for artistic purposes.

    I am not a hater I just ask a lot of questions and challenge anything that seems suspicious. By now I am sure that you all know that Janet Jackson and Ludacris have been battling it out for the number one album in America and it seems that Ludcaris won barely edging ahead of Janet selling 314K to her 301K according to hitsdailydouble.com

    Not taking anything away from Def Jam or Luda's success, but they can’t really be proud of this victory seeing they decided to drop the retail sale price of Luda’s new album to $5.00. Janet kept her CD retail price the same as any other artist who releases an album the first week. It’s deplorable what some will do just to have a number one album. "OK thats a little dramatic" I’m not a business major but I understand money, so it would seem to me that Ludacris would had to have lost money just to claim the number one album. After twenty years of music making, Janet still has a victory and Janet fans look out for her tour early next year.

    In the end, Ludacris’ Release proved to be just the right Therapy for retailers. The Def Jam South/IDJ rapper-turned-actor’s new album debuts at #1 with 314k in sales, more than enough to turn back the challenge of Virgin queen Janet Jackson’s 20 Y.O., which finishes #2 with 301k. It was a battle to the end, with Jackson’s quick start thanks to her appearance on Oprah counteracted by late-week action on the Atlanta hip-hop icon. FULL STORY


    Myra's got a Blind Item for us.

    This black actress is average looking (but not bad looking) by Hollywood standards and she was determined to make it. When she arrived in Hollywood, she was humble and approachable. When she got the part on a weekly series, she became arrogant and aloof overnight. She became so big headed, she mistakenly thought, since she now has "a name" she could get her publicist to call around and arrange dates with desirable black actors and athletes. Her ego was shattered when these men refused to go out with her. To pacify her feelings, she began having one night stands, no strings attached, with pretty boy actors or male models. Her self-esteem is so low, just the thought of sharing a bed with a famous good looking man is complete fulfillment. In her mind, "this really is making it." Hint: This actress is currently on a television series that is very popular in the black community. PANACHE REPORT

    Everyone is paying close attention to Janet and Ludacris's albums. My partner in crime freezefiyah over at hhnlive.com is reporting that Janet Jackson’s new album is a international Flop. She failed to sell in major worldwide markets like UK, Germany, Australia and Ireland, which are the biggest markets in the world. They are 2/3 of the world's music sales outside of the US. Here are the chart positions for those countries in the first week as of October 1st 2006....

    UK - # 63 (3K SOLD ) Ironically this is just one place higher than Justin Timberlake's re-entry at #64 with his 2002 album Justified!!!!

    AUSTRALIA - failed to chart in top 50 albums (no chart position given as sales less than 1000 copies)

    IRELAND - failed to chart in top 100 no position given (sales of less than 750 copies)

    NETHERLANDS - #34 (roughly sales of 5000 copies) FULL STORY

    Friend in my head Jawn Murray sat down to talk with Marques Houston (MH) recently about his new album and who he’s dating. It’s the first article that I have read in a long time that actually told me something that I didn’t already know. Am I the only one who didn’t know that MH possibly dated or jumped off with Beyoncé and Brandy, WTF? I guess I don’t pay attention to him seeing that he’s just so damn corny. In the article Jawn says regarding his music: “he's at a stage in his career where his music is too mature for the kids and adults aren't quite sure if they're ready to embrace him.” I can’t say that I agree with that statement. MH hasn’t evolved as a singer. If you listen to his music, particularly his newest song “Favorite Girl” it all sounds the same. There is no growth in his vocals. It’s the same thing with Omarion. That’s why he’s in a “weird” place which is just another way of saying that he’s not selling records. FULL STORY

Wendy and co-host Charlagme the God will be bring us all the “How You doing”, “It is What it Is”, “Owwww” and “Heeeeeyy” we can take. If I had to give you an idea of how this show is going to flow, think of Howard Sterns show on "E" just less explicit. MORE INFO

    I have been paying close attention to Outkast’s movie and soundtrack since their debuts in August. I was one of the first ones to report the flop of both projects, but many tried to put a positive spin on the lackluster movie by saying that the main reason(s) that it didn’t do well was because it wasn’t available in many theaters. Whatever the reason I knew it wasn’t going to do well.

    It seems that Outkast is just disappointed as the rest of us because they have fired their manager, “Mr. Manager” Michael Blue Williams. Was it his fault or is Universal and Jive to blame? FULL STORY RELATED STORY

I have seen him perform many times and whenever he takes off his shirt or pops his pelvis, people scream for him. I just don’t get it. I don’t see the hype, I mean no homo but he’s not that muscular, he’s lost his hair, so why do ladies (and some men) love him so much? I will never understand but on of my favorite websites Sandra Rose has posted a picture for all you Marques Houston fans. MARQUES HOUSTON OVERATED PICTURE

    Say what you will about my entertainment column but you can’t call me bias. I am not a hater I just ask alot of questions and challenge anything that seems suspicious. O1LT.com supports all black entertainment even if I have personal beef with the particular artist or entertainer. Case in point one Mr. Bobby Valentino. I have had bad experience(s) with DTP artist Bobby Valentino. When you live here in Atlanta you run into artists virtually everywhere. I ran into Bobby Valentino at a private gym in Vinnings, an affluent suburb of Atlanta, GA. When I approached him in an attempt to congratulate him and network he was real dismissive, yet when the females ran over to him he showed them all the love in the world. I bumped into him again at an event and he was shadier then the first time I met him. Though I realize that his core demographic are women, he still could have engaged me in a little conversation. You never know who you’re talking to or what impact they will have in your life.

    Though he has turned me off as a fan, I can’t hate on his new song
    "Turn the Page", his lyrical ability has grown A LOT and I caught myself blasting this song in my car this weekend. He recently sat down to talk about this new album and I got the video for you. MORE ON BOBBY VALENTINO

    Def Jam damn sure hit Virgin below the belt as both record labels competed with one another for the number slot on Billboard this week. Ludacris had the balls to come out with an album on the same day as ultra popular Janet and what did he do to secure a number one album? He's selling his CD in retails stores for $5.00. As we all know a new CD usually costs between $9.99 and $14.99 at most major retailers. Occasionally you will see a CD sell for $7.99, but never $5.00. Will a number album really count as a success when you had sale it for half the price?

    Speaking of Albums......

    I can’t decide which is sadder, the fact that Monica’s album comes out tomorrow yet nobody cares, or the fact that Robin Thicke and Sleepy Brown both have albums coming out yet I haven’t even heard singles. If you care to listen to each of the albums, AOL has your back. You can listen to all their albums here.

    Wow! (I decided to take down my orginial comment. If I offended anyone it wasnt my intent.) Shout out to Crunk & Disorderly for finding this video.

    A family judge ordered Bobby Brown arrested if he steps foot in Massachusetts after he failed to show up at a hearing Monday over delinquent child support payments. Brown's attorney said it's a "very difficult time" for Brown, 37, whose tumultuous marriage to singer Whitney Houston is coming to an end after she filed for a legal separation earlier this month."Whether or not he's going through a divorce doesn't negate the fact that he still owes child support relative to his two children that he had prior to his marriage," said Norfolk Probate and Family Court Judge Paula Carey.

    Kim Ward, of Stoughton, the mother of two of Brown's children, says Brown owes two months' support, or $11,000.
    Brown has a history of legal troubles with those support payments.
    In June 2004, Brown was sentenced to 90 days in prison for missing three months of payments. That sentence was immediately suspended after Brown made back payments totaling about $15,000. Brown's attorney, Phaedra Parks, would not say where Brown, a Boston native, is currently living."It's just a very difficult time for him, as you can well imagine," said Parks, an Atlanta-based entertainment lawyer. "The media is very aware of this very public divorce that's going on right now. It's unfortunate we find ourselves back in Boston on this matter." SOURCE

    Could Janet Jackson's anger towards Justin Timberlake be a publicity stunt? Are there plans for the two to reunite on national television? According to the NYPOST that’s exactly whats about to happen. It wouldn’t surprise me. Both have albums out now and a “reunion” might be a good idea. We all know about Janet and Justin falling out after Justin “accidentally” pulled a piece of her costume off during the Super Bowl. It would seem that even though Janet and Justin both claimed it was in “accident”, Janet got all the heat while Justin fell way back. Recently Janet was on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and said that she and Justin had not spoken since “Nipple Gate”. She said that she valued loyalty and that he wasn’t loyal to her. If they can pull this off it would be a genius move. Let’s see. FULL STORY


    Myra Panache has posted some blind items for us. Can you guess who they are?

    The downlow syndrome is rapid in the music industry, including the hip-hop genre. This famous rapper loves to verbally abuse and degrade gays. He often refers to them as queers, sissy's and queens. He says homosexuals are "unnatural sinners" who are going to hell!

    His sentiments seem to change behind closed doors.

    Our source in Monte Carlo informed us, last year, the rapper hired two very good looking male escorts to service him while he was on holiday.

    When he was recently in Monte Carlo, his credit card declined prior to the male escort arriving and the date was cancelled by the agency.

    This same rapper tries to keep up with the hip-hop elite by taking out huge (five to six figure) record company advances. He's always in St. Tropez, Star Island and Monaco despite being broke.

    He's also known to be abusive towards women.

    To get additional clues to this blind item, click on the following podcast link which also includes additional entertainment news, including the "back story" to the alleged Sanaa Lathan, Terrell Owens romance and the reunion of a popular old school group, etc. Podcast: Tinsel Confidential™

    Just when the gay rumors were starting to die down about Alicia Keys, mediatakeout.com starts them up again. They have posted several shots of what looks like Alicia chillin with a female friend. I will admit that I used to have my eye on Alicia Keys back in the day and hell I still do, but when I look at the pictures obtained by the very popular news media site I just don’t see it.

    It’s funny how the media has turned on Beyoncé Knowles Inc. In this media clip a CBS news affiliated station is shown interviewing Beyoncé and her mother Tina Knowles. But when the questioning turned to negativity regarding the improper sizing of their “House of Dereon” clothing line, things quickly turned ugly as Tina immediately ended the interview. It’s very bizarre at how we have all seemed to turn on Beyonce over the past few months. I am personally over her. She has maximized her exposure so much to where I just get sick of looking at her. And just think we still have the media blitz of “Dream Girls” to look forward to.WATCH VIDEO HERE

    Though I am sure this comes as a shock to anyone, The Game is talking about whats really going down over at Aftermath Records. If anyone has been paying attention to the drama unfolding over at Dr. Dre’s record label, then you would know that The Game was taken off Aftermath’s roster and sent over to Geffen Records. Though publicly Aftermath and The Game said it was all love and were insistent that Dre was still very much involved with The Games new album “Doctors Advocate”. It would seem now the truth is coming to light as The Game gave Hot 97’s Angie Martinez the real deal. LISTEN TO AUDIO HERE
