**BREAKING NEWS** USHER SAYS "HELL TO NAW" TO TAMEKA!!!
By L.T. Dinwiddie It was just announced onSOHH.comthat Usher has backed out of his wedding to Tameka Foster, just hours before he was set to walk down the aisle.
According to the Associated Press, Patti Webster (W&W Public Relations) has released the following statement.
"It was announced today that the wedding ceremony for Usher Raymond, IV and Tameka Foster was canceled. No additional information will be given regarding the circumstances of the cancellation, but we hope the privacy of this matter will be respected."
As shocking as this is – and I will admit I was very shocked – I’d have to warn everyone against casting judgment without learning all the details, which I’m sure will be leaking within the next few days. I’ve got the strangest feeling that this entire “proposal” was cooked up to drum publicity Usher’s way. I don’t have any facts to back up my sentiments, it’s just that voice in my head. However, one thing is undeniable, this is great grist for the mill.
By L.T. Dinwiddie The Maneka, and Usher drama continues to unfold as The National Inquirer has just revealed that they have police records that show’ Tameka Foster’s criminal history. Apparently she’s been arrested for welfare fraud, and petty theft.
But guess who’s rumored to be releasing the scandalous tidbits? Maneka’s own sister, Valencia Foster. This is the police record that was found on the Internet earlier today. Whether or not Usher knows about his faience’s sordid past isn’t clear, but what is clear is that this chick isn’t a good look for him or his career.
Usher and his ambiguous counterpart are set to walk down the aisle this weekend in the Hamptons.
OH GOD MAKE IT STOP, SHAKE A CAN OF PENNY'S AT IT!!
By L.T. Dinwiddie Could the most over hyped reality show moment on MTV been nothing more then a publicity stunt to push choreographer Laurie Ann into the spotlight? That’s what it looks like, as she’s preparing to debut her own spin off show tentatively called “The Laurie Gibson Show”
Her new reality television series will chronicle the famed dancer’s climb to become the next big thing in music. There’s just one problem, isn’t Laurie Anne in her mid 30’s?
IT LOOK'S LIKE IT'S TIME FOR ALL OF US TO BAND TOGETHER!!
LEND YOUR SUPPORT TO AN EXECUTIVE PRESIDENTIAL PARDON FOR THE LEGENDARY RON ISLEY AKA MR. BIGGS.
Join Def Jam today in helping to spread the word for the pardon of legendary American musician Ronald Isley. As a member of The Isley Brothers, Ronald Isley's career spans over 50 years, with countless accomplishments and a legacy of uniquely American music that has influenced everyone from the Beatles to Notorious B.I.G.
In an effort to protect Mr. Isley from incarceration for non-payment of taxes, we urge his fans to call, fax or email the White House immediately to help Ronald stay out of prison. The situation is especially urgent because Mr. Isley is currently scheduled to report to begin serving a 3 year sentence on August 7th of this year. In lieu of the recent charges brought against Mr. Isley, he is currently in the process of a total restitution of his financial obligations to the IRS. Mr. Isley has also offered to perform for troops at various military bases to help heal the country and show his support for their tireless efforts to protect this country. It is important to point out that Ronald Isley has no prior criminal record, and has been a law-abiding, taxpaying employer since 1956. There is also concern that due to a variety of health issues, (Mr. Isley suffered a stroke in 2004 and was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2006) without proper care Mr. Isley's health could decline further and there is genuine concern as to whether he could survive a lengthy incarceration.
Ronald Isley & The Isley Brothers are an important part of this country's musical history and a part of the Def Jam family so let's band together to keep one of our living legends out of jail.

THE "WHAT IN THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING" PICTURE OF THE DAY!!!
By L.T. Dinwiddie If Sean Kingston wants to be truly successful I'm going to need him to learn how to control his mannerism's. And might I add, hire a nutritionist/personal trainer. Something tells me that beautiful girls really isn't his thing.
WHY I NOW CAN OFFICIALLY CLAIM MY HATRED FOR YOUTUBE.COM!
By L.T. Dinwiddie
It’s disgusting to me how youtube has become yet another corporate extension practically overnight. What was once a uniquely conceptualized video sharing website where you could find obscure footage as well as music videos, concert footage etc. Has metamorphosised into just another corporate machine.
Youtube has taken aggressive tactics recently to combat the amount of copyright infringed material that was being played on millions of blogs around the internet. Who could argue with that right? But now a day’s youtube.com is taking it upon themselves to be a bit overly aggressive removing anything and everything that not only violates copyright laws, but also embarrass celebrities.
Beyoncé Knowles made headlines earlier today as fans who attended her Orlando, Florida concert captured a disastrous accident that left B falling down a flight of concert stairs. The crowd gasped as the Multi-Grammy winning singer plummeted. As shocking as it was, miraculously the pop star bounced right back up and kept the performance going like any professional world. However, her after concert antics have been everything but unprofessional as Beyoncé, Matthew Knowles, and Sony BMG have made it their priority to conceal the dramatic fall from the world.
The footage that was all over youtube and dailymotion have all but mysteriously disappeared. Instead of watching her accident with your own eyes, what you will now see when you attempt to play the video is “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Sony BMG”. What copyright claim? And if that’s the case why doesn’t Sony BMG see to it that all their artist concert and video footage are removed and not just their golden girl?
This footage, as shocking as it was, was extremely important for fans and foes alike to see. It show’s that the superstar is just like any of us. She falls down’s, but most importantly she gets back up and keeps it moving. It was a very symbolic moment that has now been ruined by Music World’s undying effort to shine Beyoncé in the brightest, and positive light possible. Funny, how they didn’t seem to act so swiftly when Kelly Rowland was crashing to the floor due to dehydration and exhausting.
What makes Beyoncé so god damn special all the time? In a statement released by Beyoncé’s publicist Yvette Noel-Suchurer "Beyoncé's fall on stage last night in Orlando, Fl. during her performance of 'Ring The Alarm' was a mere spot on an otherwise sensational, flawless show,” If that’s the case then why try and hide it from the world?
I don’t know about you, but I will no longer support Youtube.com with my videos. I will only use video sharing websites that wont baulk just because an entertainer circum to an human emotion — embarrassment.
Ok, so let me just tell you at the impact my fellow blogging brethren SoHH Soulman’s blog has on the world.
He runs a post at 9:45 A.M. posing the question “Where the hell is Jennifer Hudson?” And by 12:25 P.M. not only does he get the answer, but he also receives a very intimate video of the Academy Award winner answering his question.
I don’t care what y’all say. Nobody does it like the Soulman. Concreteloop, try to take notes!!
Check out Soulman’s hottest blog, well right nexttomine,onSOHH.com
And he does pose a very interesting question. Why in the hell isn’t she wearing a seatbelt?
Who are these people you ask? Over 1,500 CPDRC inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines at practice! Yeah, you read it right. This NOT the final routine. They did a pretty damn good job if you ask me!
