Papa Knowles Set This Up!

Papa Knowles Set This Up!

Aretha “Don’t you know who I am? I’m the Juggernaut, bitch!” Franklin tops PETA’s annual list of worst dressed celebrities.

“… you looked as if you were going to perform `I Am the Walrus’ by the Beatles,” [So ya’ll got jokes? – – Fresh]People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Wednesday of Franklin’s appearance. “You might be a queen, but you don’t know jack about compassion.”

“How ’bout some R-E-S-P-E-C-T for animals?” PETA added.

Other noted stars who made the list include Marilyn Manson, Eva Longoria, Lindsay Lohan, Kate Moss and Kylie Minogue. Like I’ve said 1,000 times, I’m surprised that Mary J. Blige hasn’t been dosed with a can of red paint yet.

Please Let It Be True, Please Let It Be True

I was checking in with The Life Files this morning and as usual they had some juicy gossip. According to radio personality Miss Jones, Fantasia has issued a sing off challenge to Keyshia Cole. If this was to ever go down you know what the crowd would be in store for: screaming, hollering, sweaty snatches, Neffe firing off her 40 cal., raw emotion, and ghetto yodeling.

I don’t know about you but I would pay good money [read: fork over a food stamp voucher] to watch.

I’m just saying, it would be even more interesting if Young Dro and Young Jeezy got involved, youngin’. Somebody call up Don King.

* I doubt it is but a girl can dream, can’t she?

I’m Not Saying It’s Right, But I Understand

Two men wheeled a dead man through the streets in an office chair to a check-cashing store and tried to cash his Social Security check before being arrested on fraud charges, police said.

David J. Dalaia and James O’Hare pushed Virgilio Cintron’s body from the Manhattan apartment that O’Hare and Cintron shared to Pay-O-Matic, about a block away, spokesman Paul Browne said witnesses told police.

“The witnesses saw the two pushing the chair with Cintron flopping from side to side and the two individuals propping him up and keeping him from flopping from side to side,” Browne said.

The men left Cintron’s body outside the store, went inside and tried to cash his $355 check, Browne said. The store’s clerk, who knew Cintron, asked the men where he was, and O’Hare told the clerk they would go and get him, Browne said.

A police detective who was having lunch at a restaurant next to the check-cashing store noticed a crowd forming around Cintron’s body, and “it’s immediately apparent to him that Cintron is dead,” Browne said.

The detective called uniformed New York Police Department officers at a nearby precinct. Emergency medical technicians arrived as O’Hare and Dalaia were preparing to wheel Cintron’s body into the check-cashing store, Browne said. Police arrested Dalaia and O’Hare there, he said.

Cintron’s body was taken to a hospital morgue. The medical examiner’s office told police it appeared Cintron, 66, had died of natural causes within the previous 24 hours, Browne said.

“He was deceased in the apartment when he was removed by these two,” Browne said. [source]

YouTube Clip of the Day

Now this is random. Cognac Jack’s alleged former love recently spoke out about their relationship, claiming that Remy Ma used to “eat the box.” Sounds delicious. I just would like to know where they found Felicia ‘Snoop’ Pearson’s stunt double at.

I’m Handing In My Resignation Papers

In the past I have talked mercilessly about Golden Brook’s dishevelled appearance at public events.

Today I decided it was due time to turn over another leaf on C+D. I officially give the fuck up on Golden. Forever. In the back of my mind I hoped she would turn things around (think Serena Williams of recent times) but I have been lying to myself for far too long; that shit is just not going to happen. I have decided to expel my energy on celebs who will actually listen and take positive steps in the right direction. Besides, what more can I say?

More flicks from Los Angeles Confidential Pre-Emmy party on deck.

Where Is The Love?

Where Is The Love?

Ha, what’s love got to do with it?

Ike Turner will have the stage, but not the day, when he performs in St. Louis in September.

Mayor Francis Slay has turned down a request to make Sept. 2 “Ike Turner Day.” The 75-year-old singer is scheduled to perform that day at the Big Muddy Blues Festival.

Cathy Smentkowski, an aide to Slay, said that when the request “was brought to the mayor’s attention, he did not feel comfortable issuing it.” She declined to elaborate.

“We were only looking to celebrate his contributions to the music industry. Many entertainers have checkered pasts,” festival director Dawne Massey told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. (source)

More Pictures 12

A fashionably dressed Barack Obama looks away from a homeless man who asks for an autograph. The homeless man said he lived right across the street from The White House on a park bench.

That’s not even right, Obama. At least he wasn’t asking for spair change! He probably thought you were Jackie Robinson or somebody. You got that fake ass Tom Arnold following behind you so that just adds fuel to the fire.

FYI: Did you know that Homeless Larry has been in several rap videos before breaking on the scene as a rapper? I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw him walking around Houston in Slim Thug’s original “I Ain’t Heard of That” clip.

Now That’s My Kinda Street Team Promotion

First my man Donkey gets called to court as a witness now this. Damn I love random ass news!

Playboy pin-up Vida Guerra is appearing on the seedy streets of Las Vegas. The 33-year-old glamour girl is popping up all over Sin City – on calling cards advertising bargain-basement hookers. The unauthorized ads show the Cuban cover-girl in a figure hugging red top and thong – under the name Lexy. The cards say an intimate brush up with the beauty will be yours for $125 – with ‘no hidden fees.’ Thousands have been spotted lining the streets in seedy areas of the U.S. gambling city. Prostitutes earn top-dollar in Las Vegas helping high rollers celebrate hitting it big. The sexy cards are left all over the city to entice drunken customers, who meet up with the girls in their hotel rooms.
Pedro’s b-boy stance is slaying me. Did you know that picture was snapped as he stood under a lamp post watching out for the long arm of the law? You know he’s seen it all before. What else can I say about dude, he gets busy.

Somebody Is Trying To Destroy T-Pain

The Wikipedia Curse has reared its ugly head once again. The target this time is none other than Mr. Teddy Penderass. This is almost as entertaining as the rumor about Khia being the new face of Covergirl cosmetics from a couple of months back. Almost.

I know one of you did it.

Convict Music

Convict Music

An Arizona jail launched its own version of American Idol – named Inmate Idle. The jailbird singing contest was developed by notoriously severe Sheriff Joe Arpaio who also makes inmates wear pink clothes. Rocker Alice Cooper will judge the inmates at a show on Friday night. (Watch video)

Six prisoners at Arizona’s Maricopa County Jail were voted through to the afternoon’s live performance contest finale. Inmates built the set for the final showdown, and 10,000 prisoners were expected to cast ballots for their favorite convict.

According to The Arizona Republic, the winner was Corey Brothers, 36, who is serving time for violating probation. Brothers said singing had always been a love of his, but he never actually expected to win. In fact, his assessment of his performance of “My Girl” was that he “did OK.”

Akon would be proud.
