So here is the official new video for the new year from Jay Z and Swizzy called "On To The Next One". I love the quality and the black and white feature of the video, however, I'm not understanding the rest of it. White guys with makeup on their faces, chicks with diamond studs on their faces, bullets, rams heads.....all makes me think of something demonic. The track is hot though and can somebody bring me back some money please!!!! Check it out below:
What are your thoughts? Would love to know!

Diddy decided to get a new tattoo on his chest and the tattoo is of Muhammed Ali's signature!! I'm guessing the New Year is making people do new things! Diddy was so proud about his tattoo he decided to tweet about it. Check it out below:
And in other Diddy news, rumor is, he's supposed to be getting married to Kim Porter (2nd baby mama) at midnight tonight. I can tell you right now I don't believe that rumor to save my life!

Mario and Kid Sister have decided to go against fur with these PETA ads. Mario looks like he's been living at the gym. ;-) Here's Kid Sister below:
The cruelty that is done to these animals just to get their fur is outright inhumane!!! I still have a mink in my closet though but I have only one!!

Diddy wants to make sure that New Yorkers get home after they party it up for New Years. Diddy's "Safe Rides Program" will be distributing $15 pre paid taxi cards and one-way $2.25 MTA cards at various locations throughout NYC. I guess the whole message behind this is drink all the Ciroc vodka you want and Diddy will pay for you to get home! ;-) He's making out like a bandit anyway!!!! Peep the get home safe commercial courtesy of Diddy below:
Diddy is the modern day Frank Sinatra!!

Diamond, formerly of Crime Mob, just put out this video called "Superbad" which features Cee Lo on the hook. The video has guest appearances by Tiny & Toya and Diamond's hubby, Lil Scrappy. Even though Cee Lo was on the hook, I saw him nowhere in the video. :( I also noticed that in one scene (the one where Diamond is rockin a dark hair do with a pink streak and some lime green shades) Diamond kind of reminds me of Nicki Minaj. Something about those big shades and pink streak makes me think of Mrs. Lewinski! LOL. ;-) Peep the video for yourself:

For Urban Ink magazine that is!! I'm hearing this was just a photoshoot but it looks like soo much more. I don't know about you guys but I have a question for you. I was told Hoopz was married. I'm not sure if that's true or not but I think my readers might know. Anyway, my question is, if you were married and had to do a photoshoot with the opposite sex, would you kiss them for the cameras? How far would you go for a good shot? I would really like to know. More pics below:
Looks a little too familiar if you ask me! ;-)

So my homies, EPMD, did a show at BB Kings on December 23rd and from what I hear they tore the house down. I'm a little upset with Erick Sermon (yes I'm saying his full government) because I called him the night before to see if he needed anybody to film the performance and he never called me back! :( Instead of calling me back he puts me on blast at the 3:20 mark! Peep the footage below:
I'm sure my homie, E, will make it up to me. ;-)

According to Gossip Jacker, Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men who was also recently diagnosed with the swine flu is said to be cheating on his wife, Sharonda! I was told that the picture above is of Shawn and his wife but I have no idea who that is. I just report the news, I don't make it up! Anyway, back to the story, Shawn's jump off has had relations with him for 9 years now!! It's also said that the jump off was with Shawn before he even got married!!
Now ladies.......if you are with a man and he ends up marrying someone else....find yourself another man because he's not taking you seriously!! REAL TALK!!! Here's the full story according to Gossip Jacker below:
Sources are dishing the dirt about Boys II Men singer Shawn Stockman's nine year relationship with another woman and we know who she is!
According to the street, swimsuit model Avonte Cherie, dated Stockman before he married his wife Sharhonda Jones in 2001. The relationship continued because according to Shawn’s belief in the Israelite Faith, a man can have more than one wife.
There’s only one problem…his wife Sharhonda was clueless to his practices. The spiritual marriage between he and Avonte Cherie ended, this year, when she found out he was cheating on her with other women in Hawaii and New York.
My question is.....How you got the swine flu and boning everybody in sight?! I'm just saying!!! Enjoy a throw back joint from Boyz II Men below called "Relax Your Mind" featuring Faith Evans:

Every year Skillz blesses us with a wrap up of the things that went down during the year. All classic events, news, gossip and anything you can think of. This particular wrap up includes excerpts from Nene Leakes of Real Housewives of ATL and Kanye West when he snatched that microphone from Taylor Swift. PRICELESS!!! My favorite excerpt is from Nene Leakes at the 2:46 mark when she says "That's a low down, dirty monkey with a wig on!".....DEAD!! Check it out for yourselves below:

I really can't understand why there is a beef between Spike Lee and Tyler Perry. On a number of occasions Spike Lee has given his opinions on Tyler's movies and plays and none of his commentary was nice. Bafoonery and coonery are Spike's choice words. I'm wondering if there is some sort of jealousy going on because Tyler brings out the masses and Spike.....not so much? Long gone are the days of "Do The Right Thing" and "Jungle Fever". Although those movies are classic they are not nearly as powerful as "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" and "Why Did I Get Married". That's just my opinion.
Getting back to my point, I just think Spike Lee is talented in what he does and Tyler is talented in what he does. Both are black men in the movie industry and Spike should just embrace that fact and let Tyler do his thing. You are more than welcome to post your thoughts but for now check out the interview below:

These two beautiful ladies have movies coming out in the new year and have also done a photoshoot with Kontrol Magazine. Teyana Taylor will be in "Stomp The Yard 2" and Teiarra Marie will be in the movie "Lottery Ticket" alongside Bow Wow. Check out some more photos of the women below:
The theme of the photoshoot was rock and romance. Teyana killed the rock aspect of the photoshoot.
And you know Teiarra did her thang in the romance department!
Photos were spotted at Miss Amazin

Here is a family photo of Kourtney Kardashian, her new baby boy, Mason and scumbag, Scott. I know I shouldn't be calling anyone names but I'm going to have to side with Khloe and the Kardashian family on this one. Kourtney is a fool if she thinks Scott is going to change his ways! Just my opinion. It's always the pretty ones that don't have a clue. :( Anyway, the happy family graces the cover of "Life & Style" magazine and they seem to look really happy together.
In the most recent issue of "Life & Style" magazine, the couple open up about being parents, their daily routine and how the baby brought their family back together. For the full interview (click here).

Roca Wear has teamed up with Mattel to present the "So In Style" Barbies!! My daughter is going to go bonkers over this! She loves everything Barbie. I'm wondering if Nicki Minaj is going to be promoting anything for the Mattel company since she's screaming Barbie this and Barbie that. ;-) Check out more fashionable Barbies below:
Not for nothing but I didn't see any of these dolls in Toys R Us when I was shopping for Christmas gifts but the dolls can be bought online at Toys R Us for $14.99.

According to Roc 4 Life, the video for "On To The Next One" will be released on Thursday, December 31st on NBC's, "New Year's Eve With Carson Daily". Can't beat that with a bat!! ;-) Anyway, Jigga and Swizzy are starting the New Year off right with a new video. Jay Z will also be performing with Rihanna to do their hits "Umbrella" and "Run This Town".
Getting back to the joint "On To The Next One", I can't help but think that Swizzy came up with that title. A little subliminal message for Mashonda? Mayyyybeee. Just my opinion. If you haven't heard "On To The Next One", check it out below:
That song is soooo SICK!!!!!

I guess all good things come to an end and we are all going to have to say goodbye to Tyra's talk show! According to Yahoo, Tyra is officially going to wrap up her show at the end of it's fifth season this spring. :-( Tyra said she is not ending her show due to ratings but because she wants to focus more on her production company called "Bankable Studios" in New York.
First Oprah, now Tyra!! What's next? I wish Tyra well though. She will be missed! Where's Rickey Lake when you need her?!!!

I'm soo happy to see that Diddy is now recognizing his daughter, Chance. Diddy had this little precious gem while he was still dating Kim Porter. What goes around, comes around! That's the way of the world.
When Misa (Puffy's 1st son, Justin's mother) was dating Diddy, Kim Porter swooped right in and violated her friendship with Misa just to be with Diddy. Oh how the tables turn! ;-) Anyway, Diddy decided to tweet about his daughter singing Christmas carols for the holidays, check his tweet out below:
And now for the grand finale, Chance singing Christmas carols below:
What a cutie pie!!!

Trina really took it there when she decided to diss Khia right after Khia walked off stage. I don't know why the two are beefing but I do know this has been an on going battle. I'm thinking this beef goes all the way back to when Trina was dating Lil Wayne. I remember Khia had said some pretty harsh things about Trina. Really personal things that weren't meant for the public's ear but Khia held nothing back. I'm wondering if these two ever had a physical altercation? Cuz if they haven't it's about to come to that! Check out the footage below:
I've never really seen Trina get out of her character and act like this but I do know everyone has a breaking point and I think she's reached hers. Can you blame her? I don't!

According to "The Insider", Jennifer Hudson is NOT expecting!! A rep for Jennifer Hudson had this to say about the rumor:
"Contrary to what has been falsely reported, Jennifer Hudson is not pregnant. Jennifer leaves in April for South Africa where she will portray Winnie Mandela in the feature film, 'Winnie'. It is a commitment she is excited about and takes very seriously. Jennifer is currently in the studio recording her second album and this is the only delivery she is looking forward to in 2010."
Hudson welcomed her first son, David, this past August and told People magazine, "I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy. Who better to devote my time to than my own child?"
So I'm guessing all those pregnancy rumors can be laid to rest now.....that is until we start seeing another baby bump! ;-)

Just last week I brought you guys some behind the scenes footage of the new joint by Amerie featuring Fabolous called "More Than Love". The clip below is the full length version of the video and I do mean full length! I mean for the first minute or so....it's just Amerie talking. That's when the song comes on and I'm loving the song!! I bang it in my truck wherever I go!!! Nevertheless, the video quality is excellent and it's a sweet love video. I'm such a mush!!! Enjoy it below:

The other night Mary J. Blige and friends came out to celebrate the release of her new album called "Stronger With Each Tear". Anybody who is somebody in the industry was there! From Jay Z to Angie Martinez of Hot 97. Even Irv Gotti was there having a good time. By the way, what has Irv been up to these days? I'm just saying. Anyway, there seemed to be an altercation between Mary J. Blige and her hubby (so they say). From the clip below, it looks like all she did was shove him but nothing major.
Rumor has it that Kendu was flirting with one of the barmaids and Mary caught him and put him in check. Nothing wrong with that in my eyes. But there has been another statement made saying that Kendu and Mary's brother got into it and Mary was just trying to stop the altercation. I have no idea what's true or not, I'm just reporting it. You can check out the slight altercation below but it's really nothing major! I'll let you guys be the judge of this one!

Rapper T.I. was released from prison yesterday and put into a halfway house. T.I. has already served 7 months and will serve the remainder of his sentence at the halfway house. I'm sure he's happy he can be home with his family for the holidays.
T.I. is able to leave the halfway house for medical needs and of course anything that has to do with his career. Isn't God good?!!! Check out the news broadcast below for more details:
And just in celebration of T.I.'s release, here's one of my favorite joints from him below:

Will Smith's son, Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan have teamed up for their own version of the "Karate Kid". Will and Jada make some pretty babies don't they? Anywho, the trailer looks interesting although I'm from back in the day when I saw the original movie in the theatre. There's nothing like the original but the new one seems to have gotten the same point across. Enjoy the trailer and let me know if you will be heading out to the movies to see this:
Karate Kid will be out in theatres in June of 2010. By the way, what little boy you know does this?
I'm just saying!!

MTV has been releasing footage of Lil Wayne and his new project called "The Nino Brown Story". I don't know if I would consider Lil Wayne any type of Nino Brown but he's definitely a force to be reckoned with in this music industry. Nevertheless, Lil Wayne is very entertaining to watch and we all know by now his work ethic is off the chain. Watch Wayne in action as he records "Banned From TV" a hot Queens anthem by Nore and friends below:

The Kardashian sisters decided to do a photoshoot with the "Single Ladies" theme. I really thought this photo was cute but I have to ask "Who did it better?". The Kardashians or Beyonce? Check it out below:
I don't know about you guys but for some reason Khloe Kardashian reminds me of the wrestler Chyna from WWE!! Does anyone agree with me on that one? Your thoughts please!

As Lil Wayne prepares himself for his jail time, he's definitely keeping busy with promoting his new album "Rebirth". Although the album did leak, I think his album sales are going to do quite well. I'm still an old school head and I need a CD for my car! So I will be getting myself a copy and my kids love Lil Wayne so they have to get their copy too! Check out the commercial for "Rebirth" below:

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were caught celebrating the album release for "The Element of Freedom" in NY. It's actually the same day that they were photographed doing some Christmas shopping over in West Village. The album release party was held at club M2 and Swizzy looks like he had a great time supporting his boo! Check out the footage below:
AJ, formerly of 106 & Park, was the host for the evening and Funk Master Flex was on the 1's and 2's!! Everyone seemed to have a good time except for those bodyguards. Those guys were really on their job!!
