Vicky, DJ Snips, Chuckie and Miss Lala debate at the Jump Off Studios on what they think has happened to the MOBO awards. Has the ceremony lost credibility? Does it still represent music of black origin? These are a couple of the question raised in this discussion…
Your thoughts please…
Vybz Kartel (real name Adidja Palmer) will appear in court today to face a second murder charge.
Palmer is charged jointly with Kiro Jones alias ‘Ray Jones’, with the murder of Clive Williams.
It is alleged that Williams was led to a house where he was beaten and stabbed to death.
I will refrain on commenting further on old Bleachy’s situation until both verdicts come in.
Innocent until proven guilty and all that!

These expensive, lavish star-studded so-called charity events kill me. The celebrities who attend, most don’t even care about the cause. They just turn up to be seen and in this case also want to be seen hanging out with Elton.
But anyway well done Jamie you managed to get your photograph in the newspapers today. A job well done luv!
This is probably the popular opinion within the world of football.

The Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has said players are “out of order” to complain about being referred to by their race.
Whelan, responding to allegations against John Terry, which the England captain denies, told LBC the issue of racism in football was overblown, and that players “should just get on with it”.
He said: “If a white man insults a black man that’s big, big news. If a black man insults a white man that’s nothing, and it’s expected.
“I think we should forget colour and … you know, it doesn’t bother anybody. Sometimes a footballer, when they’re playing at such a level, with the stress there is … if they call somebody white, if they call somebody black, you’ve just got to get on with it.
“You know, I think the players who come and complain, sometimes they are a little bit out of order. Continue Reading…..
Well at least the black footballers who play for Wigan know where their chairman stands when it comes to subject of racism in football. If they suffer abuse there is no point in looking to this old fool for help. Their complaints will be ignored.
Thank you Dave Whelan for being honest. It’s good to know where we all stand on this subject matter.
Who is responsible for the marketing/promotion of this film? Hahahaha.

Usher had just arrived to the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade (hence the guy in the Elvis costume) when the woman saw U’s SUV parked in a handicap spot.We’re told the woman demanded the singer move his car — but Usher refused and she went ballistic … screaming, flailing her arms, and grabbing Usher’s hoodie. At one point she screams, “YOU DON’T BELONG HERE”. Sources say the woman’s husband eventually dragged her away from the scene — and Usher drove away not long after.

No Wale YOU “gotta do better” and THINK before you tweet.
I don’t pay much attention to Wale’s music but I always got the impression that he was considered one of the few rappers with sense. But I guess I was wrong.
