April 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Rhymes With Snitch reports that Chris Brown stormed out of a radio interview yesterday.

The singer was there to promote his Haiti Benefit concert,  but it all went down hill after he asked the DJ why they didn’t play his music.

“Why am I even here?”

Erm.. I thought he was there to help promote his “Hati Benefit Concert”.

Oh dear Chris….

Via The Sun

A 72-YEAR-OLD granny is having an incestuous affair with her own GRANDSON — and the pair are set to have a BABY.

Grey-haired Pearl Carter has shocked family and friends after beginning a bizarre relationship with her 26-year-old grandchild Phil Bailey.

Pearl, from Indiana, US, is now using her pension to pay $54,000 (£35,000) to a surrogate mother so they can have a child, say reports in New Idea magazine in New Zealand.

Pearl said: “I’m not interested in anyone else’s opinion. I am in love with Phil and he’s in love with me. Soon I’ll be holding my son or daughter in my arms and Phil will be the proud dad.” Continue Reading…

This is INSANE and beyond SICK if true.

UK NEWS: BBC UNDER PREASURE TO FIRE DJ TIM WESTWOOD AFTER HE ENCOURAGES DRUG USE AT FESTIVAL

April 30, 2010 5 comments

Via The Mail

The BBC was facing calls yesterday to sack a DJ who was filmed encouraging fans to take drugs as a rave festival.

Controversial Radio 1 presenter Tim Westwood, who was earlier this month unveiled by the corporation as the face of a new charity scheme, was filmed goading a crowd with a slew of four-letter expletives whilst DJing at the event last weekend.

The footage shows the 52-year-old on stage shouting over the audience: ‘Are you ready to party with Westwood? Make some noise!’ We’re going to have a good motherf***ing time at this party! You ready to party or what?

‘Damn, how many people are taking some f***ing drugs this weekend? If you’re taking some motherf***ing drugs this weekend, make some noise! Damn, how many people are getting drunk this afternoon? How many people are going to have sex tonight? Make some noise!’ Continue Reading…..

Could this be the end of the Tim “Big Dawg” Westwood?

UK NEWS: WILEY’S MANAGEMENT THREATENS MAD NEWS WITH LEGAL ACTION

April 29, 2010 13 comments

Wiley

Mad News has been threatened with legal action.

This threat comes from rapper Wiley’s management team who in APRIL 2010 requested that I remove a blog posted way back in 2008.

The story reported that Wiley had fallen out with his management in spectacular fashion.

In 2008 Wiley made a point of posting his thoughts on the RWD website, detailing the situation with his manager. HE put it out there in to the public domain that he was unhappy.

But in 2010 I have now been informed that all is well with Wiley and his management, which I am so relieved to hear because MILLIONS of visitors to this site from all over the world had been talking/speculating about this situation for 2 years.

*rolls eyes*

Anyway I was then told that the post had to be “removed straight away or further legal action would be taken”.

I have since removed the offending post because I don’t want to be blamed for ruining the career of a rising star like Wiley, and I don’t have the time, money or patience to fight over a 2 year old blog post, that people stopped paying attention to just a week after it was orignally posted.

Check out Wiley with his Roll Deep brethren below. Good Times is their current single featuring Jodie Connor (released 19th April).

Hmmm this explains a lot…

It doesn’t get anymore mainstream than this!

VIDEO: TONI BRAXTON – YESTERDAY

April 29, 2010 3 comments

Toni Braxton’s new single Yesterday will be released here in the UK on May 3rd, and her album Pulse will drop on May 10th.

The single in my opinion sounds lacklustre. Toni’s other track Hands Tied is well produced and is a hundred times better than this.

Yesterday (in parts) also sounds like Beyonce’s Halo.

The video – It looks like it was hastily put together. Toni should fire her make-up artist, and it doesn’t look like much thought went in to the video’s concept or choice of costumes and wigs worn.

Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK NEWS: PLAYRIGHT BLASTS BBC’S ‘WELCOME TO LAGOS’

A scene from Welcome To Lagos

Via Digital Spy

Nigerian playwright Wole Soyinka has branded a BBC documentary about the slums in Lagos “condescending” and “colonialist”. Aired on BBC Two, three-episode mini-series Welcome To Lagos tracked people living in the poorest areas of the Nigerian city to celebrate their industriousness.

Speaking to The Guardian, Nobel Laureate Soyinka said that the documentary was “the most tendentious and lopsided programme” he had ever seen.

Despite the series receiving critical praise in the UK, Soyinka said that it demonstrated “the worst aspects of colonialist and patronising” attitudes towards modern life in Africa.

Soyinka, who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1986, said: “There was no sense of Lagos as what it is – a modern African state. What we had was jaundiced and extremely patronising. It was saying ‘Oh, look at these people who can make a living from the pit of degradation’. Continue Reading….

Well said Wole.

I knew from the very start that the BBC’s three-part documentary Welcome To Lagos wasn’t going to show Lagos (Nigeria) in a positive light.

Why would they bother to make a documentary about affluent, educated and successful Nigerians or at least show a balanced view.

No they would rather continue to just show the world the poverty and degradation. E.g. people who live on top of a rubbish dump (see pic above).

Congratulations goes out to the BBC. A job well done! You should clean up come awards season!

I now look forward to watching your next unbalanced three-part documentary, Welcome To Kingston.

UK TV: N-DUBZ APPEAR ON GMTV – DAPPY ADDRESSES EXPOSED DRUG ABUSE

April 29, 2010 6 comments

N-Dubz appeared on GMTV earlier this week and group member Dappy addressed the recent photographs that exposed him taking the illegal substance Meow Meow (Mephedrone).

Well that was embarrassing to watch!

And what is Tulisa talking about?

“I don’t condone drugs. I’ve never touched them, never will”.

I’m sure it has been documented in the N-Dubz official book that she abused drugs as a teenager.

UK NEWS: BNP “TOO RACIST” FOR BLACK PASTOR

April 28, 2010 3 comments

Rev James Gitau

This is PURE COMEDY GOLD!!!

Several weeks ago the Reverend James Gitau was seen walking alongside Far-right/BNP leader Nick Griffin throughout the streets of Barking.

Back then the Rev was proud to say he was a BNP supporter (their one and only black supporter).

However things have now changed. The Rev has now left the political party.

WHY? because “they were too racist”.

Via The Croydon Guardian

A black reverend who defected from the BNP because it was “too racist” is standing in the general election as a Christian Party candidate for the Croydon Central seat.

Reverend James Gitau, 63 from West Croydon, joined the BNP and went on the campaign trail on April 10 with Nick Griffin in Barking and Dagenham, the constituency where he is standing.

The Kenyan, who moved to Britain in 1997, said: “I actually decided to join them when they opened up for all races. I campaigned for them to open up to other races.

“I asked them to give me one of the constituency seats in Croydon and they refused so I decided to leave. I also realised then that they were too racist.”

Rev Gitau, who is affiliated to the United Holy Church of America, said he was approached by the Christian Party on April 17 who encouraged him to leave the BNP and join their party.

However, he said he still gave advice to BNP leader Nick Griffin.

He said: “I am giving him advice and telling him that racism is not the way forward.”

Mr Gitau said he told Nick Griffin there should be immigration controls but “genuine immigrants” should be allowed into the country. Continue Reading….
