Star Tracks: Grace Jones

I’m not going to tell ya’ll that I thought this was Lil’ Mama at first. Nope, I am just going to keep that to myself. StrangĂ© went on an afternoon stroll with a pal in Soho earlier this week. Grace used to the scare the hell out of me when I was a child but you can’t help but love her. I wish all models were as wonky as she is.

What’s New Pussycat?

What’s New Pussycat?

While many folks may have thought that Al B. Sure had a permanent position in the wig crypt he has been cooking up new ways to supplement Kim Porter’s income.

And what about the man himself? Just because he hasn’t had a record out in ages, some think he fell off, but he’s been busier than you think.

“And we’ve got Al B. working on the new album, which is called ‘Honey I’m Home.’ It’s been quite a while, but its coming. Everybody I run in to, from Anthony Anderson to Michael Jackson [Uh huh. – – Fresh], are asking me ‘When’re you going to come with the new album. I really love it and appreciate it. It’s about time now. I’ve lost all the weight and it’s time to do it.”

He lost the weight? Some of his female fans may be a little upset at that. Some liked the teddy bear look, but to each her own. He’s currently a popular radio show host from 9 am to 12 pm on LA radio station Hot 92.3. It’s a job Al B. Sure says he enjoys greatly. By the way, radio and CDs aren’t the only mediums he’s dabbling in these days.

“Definitely, Hot 92.3 has been a blessing to me. I talk to (millions) of people everyday. I’m definitely keeping the radio gig. But I’m also in a new straight to DVD film with Blair Underwood. It’s called ‘The Hit’ and it’s on CodeBlack/Universal. It also stars DeRay Davis and James Russo from ‘The Godfather.’ It’s a nice little joint.” (source)

Milk And Cookies!

Milk And Cookies!



Iron Mike stocked up on Santa’s favorite treat at a liquor store in West Hollywood. Milk and cookies! I don’t know, I always thought that Mike was more of a pork rinds and RC cola man myself. That must have been one hell of a blunt.

Since it is Halloween today this YouTube clip of the Mike and Bobby Brown singing “Monster Mash” on Jimmy Kimmell is like a good bra holding up Aretha the Body’s tittayballs, so necessary.

Question of the Day


The lovely RuPaul signed autographs of his new ‘Starrbooty’ DVD yesterday at the Virgin Megastore. I will never understand how someone can upstage hoes for 20 years+ and never get a snag in their swag Which brings me to today’s question (not really). Who would win in a shank off between RuPaul and Gaymonn?

ABOUT ‘STARRBOOTY’

…Armed with a video camera and an imagination, RuPaul’s ultimate goal in creating Starrbooty was to spoof the blacksploitation films of the 1970s like “Cleopatra Jones,” “Foxy Brown” and the television show “Get Christie Love.”

Once he completed the film and rather low-budget editing process Starrbooty was born.

Fast forward 20 years to the present and you just might catch a revamped version of the eccentric character on the big screen.

Trick or Treat?

Trick or Treat?


First the Fat Boys break up, now this. Fresh braids, clean skin . . . the fuck? What type of CGI effects is this?! Is this like a dirt oasis? Is he actually going to look like Swamp Thing in his article spread? I’m locking myself in the bathroom, turning the lights off, and yelling “Bloody Mary” three timesto re-correct this shit.

Whatever Jermaine



Jermaine Dupri is attempting to stir the waters of conflict so that his autobiography will sale. Just plain ol’ thirsty behavior! The above “leaked” video clip featured a pissed JD going off about being asked by different press outlets about his comments about Justin Timberlake. This shit looks like a bad church play. Is Tyler Perry holding the camera? You need more people, and Janet is not one of them.

Jessica White, Who?

Jessica White, Who?



Not too many people can stand next to Amanda Lepore and hold their own. Gaymon’s long, silky weave is a delightful contrast to his scruffy beard. He unleashed his zest during the Night Life Awards at Spotlight New York City on Monday. Tell the truth and shame the devil, you wouldn’t hit that?
