Rhymes With Snitch reports that megastar Beyonce Knowles now has her own comic book.
SHE’S ALREADY A STAR, NOW BEYONCE’S A COMIC-BOOK HERO
She’s already a chart-topper. She’s married to rap royalty. She’s an actress. Now Beyonce will add one more feat to her already impressive resume: She’s set to become a comic-book hero.
Bluewater Comics this January will send its latest biography comic, Fame: Beyonce, to comic-book shops across the country. Readers will also be able to order the comic directly from online retailers such as Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com.
The comic, written by CW Cooke and featuring pencils by Alex Lopez, will trace Beyonce’s rise through the music business, from her early days with Destiny’s Child to her booming solo career.
The 32-page comic will retail for $3.99. To make sure you get your copy, contact your local comic book store to pre-order it.
According to writer CW Cooke, for a person seemingly always in the public eye, Beyonce has led a relatively private life. Even the most avid Beyonce fan, then, will learn something new when reading Fame: Beyonce, Cooke said.
Working on Beyonce was quite an experience, Cooke said. Everybody knows who she is. And yet, there are so many little things and tidbits of knowledge that seem to be passed up when people talk about her in the media.
Getting to dive into her story and piece together her life was exciting, Cooke added. She’s accomplished so much in so little time. She’s had so many ups and so few owns. Telling her story wasn’t so much of a roller coaster, but more of an exciting elevator ride.
Writer CW Cooke says that “everybody knows who Beyonce is“. Really Cooke? do you even know WHAT SHE LOOKS LIKE????
And is that supposed to be Jay-Z on the bottom left???
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
Rapper T.I (real name Clifford Harris) was sentenced to serve 11 months in prison today for drug possession. But I hear that his legal team plan on appealing the decision.
Yeah good luck with that! *sarcasm*
Before the judge announced his sentence Harris had this to say,
I screwed up. I screwed up big time, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry. I don’t want and I don’t need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life.”
But Judge Pannell was unmoved.
“The worst thing is this case was an experiment,” Pannell said. The judge said he hoped the extraordinary sentence Harris initially received would work and could be adapted for use in other cases.
But then Pannell looked at Harris and said: “You certainly dumped a lot of smut on the whole experiment.”
Pannell had sentenced Harris to a year and a day in prison for his 2007 arrest on weapons charges. The unprecedented deal shaved almost four years off a potential sentence, provided Harris perform 1,000 hours of community service. The service, which he completed, consisted largely of visits with schoolchildren to speak out against violence, gangs and drugs. Continue Reading….
T.I is a born idiot. He got what he deserved. He blew it.
Oh dear more scandal over at FIX-Factor
What a complete and utter farce. It’s hilarious.
CRISIS-hit X Factor is today plunged into a fresh scandal – wildcard Treyc Cohen has a secret management deal and has already released a single, we can reveal. It means the comeback singer – who mentor Cheryl Cole last night brought back as her fourth girl – has breached strict competition rules and shouldn’t be in the live finals. Continue Reading….
I wonder if the shows producers will stand by her like they’ve done for fellow contestant Katie Waissel, who also has a management deal and links to Sony BMG.
It will be really interesting to see what happens here.
Check out Treyc’s debut single below, released in 2009.
This track should have been entered in to the Eurovision Song Contest.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, N-Dubz group member Dappy will end up single-handedly destroying everything the group has strived to achieve.
If Tulisa and Fazer have any sense in their heads they will start working on solo projects outside the group ASAP! At least they will have something to fall back on after the group disbands.
Anyway check out behind the scenes footage from the “Sex” video shoot.
I can’t decide which is funnier/worse, Dappy rapping complete and utter trash in to the camera or the three stooges behind him, twisting up themselves and attempting to dance like Miami strippers.

X Factor bosses have admitted to using vocal enhancement processes on the ITV talent show.
Fans had claimed after the opening show that “autotuning” had been used to improve some contestants’ voices.
It is used in recording studios to improve performances by correcting pitch and disguising off-key mistakes. Continue Reading…
How come they failed to enhance Jedward’s and Miss Frank’s vocals on last years show?

A bridegroom in Turkey has accidentally killed three relatives while firing an AK-47 in celebration at his own wedding, Turkish media reported.
The groom lost control of the weapon as he tried to fire in traditional celebration in the air at the ceremony in the village of Akcagoze in south-eastern Gaziantep province.
The guests were sprayed with bullets and the groom’s father and two aunts were killed.
Well… that’s what happens when you attempt to lick shots using an AK-47.
How will this man be able to live with himself now?
Rest in peace to all those you lost their lives.
On Monday night Channel 4 aired the first episode of N-Dubz’s new documentary Being.. N-Dubz.
Rapper Lethal B who claims the group stole a track from him, was featured on the documentary arguing with group member Dappy at a ‘celebrity’ football match.
Lethal, who we must remember is a GROWN MAN, has now taken it upon himself to set the record straight about the incident and gives Grime Daily “the real story”.
This is just getting ridiculous now. If it’s not Lethal attacking the group via YouTube, it’s some random artist called UK Worries (cousin to Reggae star Beenie Man) that I spotted over at The Lala Report.
I have no clue what this man’s ‘beef’ is, but my message to UK Worries would be to focus less on what N-Dubz are doing, and focus more on developing your own musical style/ persona/image.
The world does not need another Beenie Man.
Check out the videos below. Once you get past the pointless rantings you will see exactly what I mean.
Two grown men acting like their still in the school playground.
What a sad state of affairs folks!
These are our role models.
So the mighty J-Hova is “King Of America” now is he?
Complete and utter nonsense!
BNP (British National Party) leader and racist Nick Griffin was out and about today canvassing the streets of Barking for votes, with black pastor Rev James Gitau by his side.
Griffin claimed the charade proved that his organisation is “no longer racist”.
Rev James Gitau joined the far-Right party after it was forced to change its constitution to allow non-white members.
Griffin went on to add “There will be others. Although obviously the vast majority of our supporters are native Brits.”
When I came across this story in The Evening Standard all I could do was shake my head and laugh.
The BNP is “no longer racist” Nick? That has got to be the funniest statement EVER!
But I’ve just got this niggling feeling that the Rev James Gitau (of the United Holy Church), who moved to the UK from Kenya in 1997 is a vulnerable man with psychological issues.
There can be no other explanation for this level of foolish.
For those of you living outside of the US, who know nothing about baseball (like myself) and therefore not so familiar with Sammy Sosa he is a former major league baseball star. Click here for more information about Sammy.
I decided to post this story because it’s hilarious, sad and pathetic.
Sammy who hails from the Dominican Republic recently turned up to the Latin Grammy Awards ceremony with lighter skin, straight hair and wore coloured contact lenses.
He was obviously keen to remove the Afro-Latin from out of his system….
When accused of using a skin bleaching agent a close friend of Sammy’s leapt to his defence saying,
“He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson. He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin. Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting. He is in the middle of doing a cleansing process to his skin. The picture is deceiving. He said, ‘If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture.’ People who saw him in person did not react the same way. He can’t believe it is such a big deal. He has always been concerned with the way he looks. Probably just bad timing going to an awards show.”
But today Sammy admits to bleaching his skin….
“It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some. It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily.” Sammy would not name the cream divulging only that it came from Europe and that, “I’m going to market it, I’m a businessman.”
Sammy self-hatred is a terrible thing my friend. Seek help before it’s too late.
As for marketing this poison because you’re a “businessman”, you deserve a bitch lick across your ridiculous bleached face.
Sammy was once quoted as saying ”I’m not black. I’m Dominican”.
