TMI! TMI!

TMI! TMI!

Janet Jackson confesses she enjoyed sex more than her lovers did – until she met Jermaine Dupri. “I feel like I finally met my match,” she tells Essence magazine. “In relationships it was always the guy telling me, ‘OK, hold on, wait a minute.’ I’d ask my girlfriends, ‘Aren’t we supposed to be the ones who say, ‘Wait, not tonight, I have a headache’? This happened through two [marriages] for me. I thought something’s not right here. But with Jermaine I don’t have to say anything; he knows I’m ready. Any time, any place.” (source – – spotted @ CL)

It is also reported that Jermaine has also said that he “likes to receive oral more than he likes to give.” Well, I don’t know about you guys but this is a way too much information.

It should be a very sad day for Star Jones. Whenever a little kid gives you the side eye, you soul should ache. Kimussell #2 is so cute. Kids like that make me re-think this whole baby thing. But then I come to my senses.

Another Damn Petition

Another Damn Petition

Petitions have been popping up all over the internet lately. I’ve been thinking about composing one my damn self. What the subject will be is still unknown at this point. But when I think of something, you’ll be the first to know.

There seems to be some debate over MTV possibly blacklisting the video for “Call On Me.” People are speculating that the infamous “nipple gate” incident is where things stem from. Here’s the petition:

To: American Media

It is blatantly obvious that MTV is refusing to support its first ICON, Janet Jackson, due to the Superbowl mishap. As music lovers and viewers of MTV, we find this very offensive because Janet Jackson and the Jackson family are landmarks in African-American history, popular culture, and in American History as a whole. 20 years ago, Janet Jackson was one of the pioneering artists who helped make the music video what it is today, and, consequently, contributed to MTV attaining the international musical status it currently enjoys.

Janet is an inspiration to all people, but she especially inspires women and African Americans. But while Janet’s work is noticeably absent from MTV’s programming, Justin Timberlake, the other participant in the Superbowl incident, receives heavy promotion from MTV, despite his relatively minor stature in popular culture compared to Janet Jackson. It is disheartening to see someone who has inspired so many people to succeed receive blatantly disparate treatment. This observation is even more troubling given MTV’s prior history with race and gender. Janet’s mistreatment threatens to undermine much of the progress the network has made on race and gender issues over the last 25 years.

Janet Jackson remains a musical powerhouse after 20 years at the top of the charts. Her current song sits at number 25 on Billboard’s Top 100 — above the tracks of many younger “stars” in rotation at MTV — and it is among the top played songs at Urban and CHR radio formats. MTV’s failure to play and promote this beautifully artistic video, despite the song’s success, makes the network’s disparate treatment of Janet Jackson even more apparent.

Please join us, in signing this petition to stop this horrible and unjust blacklisting of one of the music industry’s most accomplished and legendary artists.

Fans of Janet . . .

So what do you guys think?

Trick Still Loves The Kids

If you growed up (his words not mine) the way he did, you gotta understand Trick love the kids. T-double-D took a break from throwing money at my local hoes and gave away school supplies. Pitbull also came out in support.

Now, if we can only get Trick to take a shower.

Rihanna @ The World Series Of Poker Party At The Rio

I know what you’re thinking. There is a reasonable explanation to all of this. Trust me on this one.



You see, Rihanna’s luggage was lost at the airport on her trip out to Las Vegas. The only items in her carry-on bag was her Slimming Shaper and red belt. So she decided to make due with what she had. That’s talent! If you guys are going to hate on her then go on. But I would like to see you do that shit. Not only does that take courage, but it shows her growth as an artist.

Ha ha ha! If only that shit was true.

Rumor Control : Did Trina Have A Miscarriage

Rumor Control : Did Trina Have A Miscarriage ?

The webmaster at Trina Fan just sent me this email over. I’m not really buying it but if it is true (which I highly doubt) then my prayers go out to Trina. But if it isn’t, then I’m going to need for people to stop making up shit! First Steve Urkel kills himself and then a month later Kel Mitchell (from the Nick show “Kenan and Kel” dies mysteriously.

Miami born Rap Princess “Trina”, who’s real name is Katrina Taylor, was hospitalized on June 28, 2006, which was one month ago. According to the private nurse who has asked to keep her name “unknown” to the public said, “The rap star was rushed into the emergency room due to internal bleeding”. The nurse said “that she felt very bad for the 5 foot 2 raptress as she cried for non other than her “beau” and fiance Dwayne Carter known as Lil’ Wayne” . . . Trina’s ultrasound revealed that she was expecting a baby boy! According to the nurse, Trina cried “God please take me and save my baby” . . .she was released 2 days later from the hospital to family members. In all due respect, our hearts go out to Trina and her family.
