Times Are Hard For Timbaland



According to TMZ.com, Timbaland is having problems with paying off his debt to his local florist! Here is what TMZ is reporting:

A Florida florist wants a piece of Timbaland's mansion after the rap mogul allegedly stiffed the store out of more than $10,000 in Xmas decorations. The White Tulip Florist in Miami Beach filed legal papers required to slap a lien on Timba's Miami mansion, claiming he bought $25,850 worth of trees, flowers and lights but still owes $11,450. We're told Timbaland pitched a fit when he got the bill -- demanding to see the wholesale cost of the items he bought. The florist showed Timba the price list, but that wasn't good enough. A call to Timbaland's rep was not immediately returned.

I guess we are all going through some rough times huh?

Get To Know "Dee Vasquez"



I first want to shout out my homie, Abba, for hooking up the interview for me and Dee Vasquez. She is a very sweet girl, on her grind and the fact that she's a Latina (like myself) I was more than honored to do the interview. We need more Latina's to step up to the plate! Check out what we talked about below:



And here she is showing me love:

The Retro Kidz Interview



Last week Thursday I was invited to a "Straight Stuntin Magazine Party" hosted by DJ Kay Slay and Dee Vasquez. While I was there I got the opportunity to meet a number of artists and a group called "The Retro Kidz". I have been to a number of events and have always seen them. I see them everywhere! Even on other websites I'm always seeing photos of them. So I had to pull them to the side and find out more about them. You will notice that they are bringing back that old school flavor. I didn't know who they were but had the chance to chat with them. Check them out below:



And by the way, if you didn't know who The Retro Kidz were then here's their official video called "New Era" below:

Plies Changes Someone's Situation



I was listening to Angela Yee on Sirius Satellite radio station Shade 45 and she was interviewing Plies. During the interview Angela played back some audio of a caller (female) who reached out to Plies on V103, who was telling Plies about her situation. The caller was obviously upset and depressed and on her way to a job interview. The caller stated she was struggling and appreciated Plies' music because it brought her out of her depressive state when times were hard. As Plies was listening to the caller he asked her for her information and offered to meet up with her to help her out!! I couldn't believe my ears and I couldn't help but like Plies more as a person. Angela Yee commended him for doing such an act and spoke about it. It's nice to hear about things like this rather than hearing about beef. Plies has just won himself another fan with me!! BTW, if that's all it takes is a phone call and some tears than I need to start picking up the phone and calling radio stations cuz a chick is struggling with 4 kids. Can somebody help me out please?!

Farrakhan Speaks The Truth



I know there are a lot of mixed feelings about Minister Louis Farrakhan but I have to say that the man is speaking the truth in this video! We as ethnics have the mentality (sometimes) that when we deal with WHITE FOLKS....we are getting ahead, we are going to go far, that everything is going to be alright......and 9 times out of 10 we're not. Now, I'm not saying that all white people fit into this mold but I'm saying that us ethnics are so welcoming to them and accept them into our world too quickly.

Over the Christmas holiday I went shopping with a friend and there was a long line to take a picture with Santa Claus. Of course, my daughter, Briyah, wanted to take a picture with Santa and being I was in a rush, I told her no and wanted to get the hell out of dodge. In the midst of the rush my friend asked me a question and that question was this: "If Santa Claus was black do you think all these white folks would be standing on line waiting to sit their child on his lap?" I thought for a moment and said "Damn! That's a good question!" Although, I already knew the answer. The answer is NO! White folks would not be on line waiting to take pictures with a black Santa. Moral of this story? My child will not be waiting on line to take pictures with a white Santa and the malls should really consider having all different types of Santas to represent all the different races we are. What do you guys think? Hit me up on the email or leave me a comment. Would love to hear about it. On a side note, check out what Farrakhan had to say below:

Having Computer Difficulties



Hey everybody! I know it's been quite some time since you've heard or read anything from me but my computer has a virus and I can't do ISH!!!! I even tried connecting my internet cable to my laptop and for some reason the video card inside my laptop is burnt out! Talk about luck. Anywho, I'm using a friends computer so just bare with me until I can really bring you all of those updates you guys have been requesting. Also...............the name of the website will be changing come the new year. I don't want to tell you what the name will be but it seems that the word "GOSSIP" got everybody a little twisted...so I will definitely be taking out the word gossip from my website name. PLEASE JUST BARE WITH ME UNTIL EVERYTHING GETS STRAIGHTENED OUT. I appreciate my readers and I will be back shortly. :)

Michael Jackson Being Sick Is A Rumor



Well, it was just a few short minutes ago that I was reporting Michael Jackson was sick and in need of a lung transplant. The news source I received that information from was lying!!! Michael Jackson is not sick and is doing just fine!! All of these rumors were floating around the internet because Ian Halperin (a man that was doing a biography for Michael Jackson) was in desperate need to promote the unauthorized book. Michael's doctor had this to say about the rumors below:

"Concerning this author's allegations, we would hope in the future that legitimate media will not continue to be exploited by such an obvious attempt to promote this unauthorized biography," said Tohme.

"Mr. Jackson is in fine health, and finalizing negotiations with a major entertainment company and television network for both a world tour and a series of specials and appearances," Tohme added.

Boy! Is this a sigh of relief or what?! They had me going for a minute there!

Superhead Documentary "Kiss & Tail"



So it seems that Karrine "Superhead" Steffans is making soo much noise that somebody is actually working on a documentary about her! Would you guys sit and watch a documentary on Superhead? I know I will!!! I need to know!!! The concept is great because now you are seeing for yourself, first hand, what people have to say about her and her situations as opposed to reading it in a book! The documentary will be called "Kiss & Tail" and features guest appearances by the Bishop "Don Magic" Juan, Ja-Rule, Ma Barker (Kool G. Rap's wife), Ed Lover and Superhead herself. There will be other guest appearances but I'll keep that under wraps for now. I've had the opportunity to watch the work in progress and believe me when I tell you this is a MUST SEE!!! You wouldn't believe what Ja-Rule had to say!!

Give me some time and I'll start to put up some clips from the documentary that will make you want more!! I PROMISE YOU, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Ashanti Is NOT Doing PlayBoy!!



If you guys are being bamboozled by all of these other websites shouting out "Ashanti is going to pose for PlayBoy" then you will sadly be disappointed to know that she will not!!! Ashanti clears all of that up in this clip with Angie Martinez. She states that she will not pose for PlayBoy and has already been offered a decent amount of money and has turned it down. Ashanti states, she is not ready for all that. Go head girl! I'm with ya! Save those goods for the man you love! He's the only one who should be seeing those goods. :)

Michael Jackson Is Dying!!!



The stories and news articles are circulating the internet fast!! Very fast!! Stories that Michael Jackson is dying due to a genetic disease that is potentially fatal! This disease, which doctors are saying Jackson developed, is a rare alpha-1, anti-trypsin protein deficiency which leaves his lungs unable to protect themselves. Jackson who is now 50 years old is in need of a lung transplant but may be too weak to go through with it. Michael Jackson is also suffering from emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, which his doctors have had a lot of trouble stopping.

If this story is true than all of my heartfelt prayers go out to Michael Jackson and his family.

Steve Harvey Allegations



Steve Harvey, one of my most favorite comedians, is being put under the bus by his ex wife, Mary Lee Harvey. Mary Lee is stating that Steve Harvey is an adulterer and is also alleging child abuse towards their son!! Peep the article below courtesy of Rhymes With Snitch:

According to online reports: October 14th, Mary says her son, who lives with Steve Harvey in the Atlanta area, came to visit her in Dallas. Mary says it was during that visit when she noticed bruises and puncture marks on the child’s body. Those who examined the boy say the wounds were likely made by a belt buckle and the bruising from a paddle-like instrument. A nurse examining the child at Plano Medical Center summoned police because of the severe nature of the injuries. A police report has not been made available to Mary Lee Harvey; however, she has corroborating medical reports from a child psychologist, a pediatrician and others who examined the child. Luckily Harvey says there was no internal damage done as a result of the alleged abuse. Mary also claims Steve does not allow their son to visit her per the court order. She says she has not been allowed to see her son since mid October even though the original order calls for visitations of at least two weekends a month.

Dang! I didn't know Steve Harvey got down like that! But if this is true then I'm wondering what his new wife thinks? Check her out below:



Well.....let me take a moment here. If you ask me.....it looks like Steve's ex-wife might have a sad case of JEALOUSY!! I mean....compare the 2 yourselves and let me know what you think. Seems like somebody might be distraught over the fact that Steve has moved on and is doing a lot better now! What do you guys think? Hit me up.

Jermaine Dupri Sets Us Straight



Rumors are being put to rest by Jermaine Dupri. He is stating that Janet Jackson, his longtime girlfriend, is NOT PREGNANT and they did not break up!!! Jermaine can't believe how people can really listen to what blogs and other websites are saying about him and Janet's relationship. So Jermaine wants you guys to log onto his website, Global14.com, and if you hear anything about him or Janet he'll let you know if it's true or not!

I really don't know how he will be able to keep up. Every time I turn around I'm hearing something about those 2. Good luck Jermaine with all of your correspondence!

If you guys thought that Tru Life has disappeared then guess again! Tru Life is back with his antics and letting yall know that he's never been missing!



Did you peep how Tru Life's been living it up? Wondering where did he get his money from since there's no albums? Well, the reports are that Tru Life has left Def Jam for a whopping $300,000!! Tru Life was smart enough to add a clause into his contract with Def Jam stating that if he didn't put out an album he would have to be paid $300,000. That's one smart business man if you ask me!

New Boots For The Winter



I was on the internet looking around for some new boots when I came across these bad boys. Not only do I think these boots are cute but they look comfortable too.

So if you are looking for some really cute finds go on over to Bakers and check out their new boot selection and let me know what you think.

Jim Jones Is Married!!!



According to the YBF and my girl Jen The Pen, Jim Jones of Dipset is a married man! Jim is being reported to have married his long time girlfriend, Chrissy, this past July over in the Bahamas! Congratulations to Jimmy! I love the fact that a big time celebrity can tie the knot to the chick who actually thugged it out through thick and thin. She's there for Jimmy and not the Dipset dude all these females are in love with. A lot of times chicks can't tell the difference between reality and showcasing! Shouts to Jim Jones for this one! He has a cute chick on his arm and I'm sure this is real love!

P.S. I heard that Juelz Santana is a married man as well!! But you didn't hear that from me! Ya dig!

Well, let me take that back.....I don't know if it was recently but I was watching an episode of Judge Karen and said Dang!! this girl looks very familiar. That's when it hit me! This girl was on the Flavor of Love show. I guess times are really hard when a Flavor of Love chick has to take someone to court over $250! I thought taking back shot pictures and attending parties paid well........I guess I was wrong! ;)

Rainbow Is Going Out of Business



Today when I was in Queens heading to my physical therapy session my aunt and I noticed a Rainbow's on 108th Street that was going out of business. We stepped inside and to our surprise they had some really nice things in there and for exceptionally low prices!!! I mean I actually did some Christmas shopping! Got some things for my little ladies that I probably wouldn't have been able to get elsewhere for the prices I got them for. I bought some perfume sets, lotions and body wash sets and the prices ranged from $3 to $9.99 with an extra 25% off!!! How could I have passed that up?! Couldn't do it! Not with the holidays right around the corner. So if you get a chance and are in the Queens, New York area....stop in and catch yourself a deal or two!! Let them know who sent you!

Obsessed With Beyonce?

Damn! Oh Damn!! This movie trailer looks good as HELL!!! Beyonce and Idris Elba seemed to have done their thang on the movie screen with this one!!! The movie is called "Obsessed" and I'm loving the concept of the white girl going crazy for the mandingo!! Isn't that how it goes anyway in the real world?! On the other hand........Idris needed not to shave the goatee off that he is sooo famous for! I'm soo used to seeing Idris as his HBO's "The Wire" character...can't seem to picture him any other way...how about you ladies?

I'm definitely at the movies to support both Bey and Id!

The photo above was recently shot as Mike Tyson was presenting the Game Of The Year award at the Video Game awards! I guess money makes you comfortable cuz I know he's eating well! Ya dig?

Doug E. Fresh Has Problems Like Us!!!



According to Rhymes With Snitch, Doug E. Fresh is having financial problems just like the rest of us! Peep the article below:

According to the NY Post: Rap icon Doug E. Fresh - best known for his 80s hit "The Show" - has been socked with 3 foreclosure actions by banks looking to collect more than $3.5 million in unpaid mortgages on a trio of his Harlem homes.

The rapper, 46, also is being chased by American Express for nearly $60,000 in credit-card debt, and the IRS just slapped him with a $367,000 tax lien on top of more than $40,000 owed to the state tax collector, records show.


After hearing all of that it makes me rethink about the debts I owe.....well,.....for one......I don't owe anybody that damn much money and after careful thought...........I ain't doing that bad!!!
