MICHAEL JACKSON’S DUTTY UNDERPANTS FOR SALE

Michael Jackson’s notorious tighty whities are up for grabs. A pair of size-28 Calvin Klein white briefs once belonging to Wacko Jacko will be auctioned on eBay tomorrow, with a reserve price of $1 million. The unwashed underpants have a sensational past. They were part of the evidence confiscated in 2003 by then-Santa Barbara DA Tom Sneddon, who wanted a DNA sample for his unsuccessful child-molestation case against the washed-up King of Pop. The briefs are part of a stash of Jacko []

MOTHER RECEIVES LIFE SENTENCE FOR MICROWAVING BABY TO DEATH

Mother China Arnold A mother who killed her month-old baby daughter by burning her in a microwave was sentenced to life in prison today. China Arnold’s actions were a “heinous atrocity” which was “shocking and utterly abhorrent for a civilised society”, Ohio Common Pleas judge Mary Wiseman said.

VIDEO: KANYE WEST 2008 VMA PERFORMANCE

Err no Kanye…. NO!!! What the hell were you thinking???? If he has good friends around him then they should have been honest and said to him “DON’T RELEASE THIS TRACK. LOCK IT AWAY IN A VAULT!!!. DESTROY IT!!!!!” I cannot believe that he closed the show with this mess. SMH Check out this footage before You Tube pulls it down! ‘Love Lockdown’ You know what, if a really talented vocalist (preferably female) sang this track it would work.

MTV VMA 2008 LIVE BLOG

The MTV Video Music Awards 2008 took place in Los Angeles last night, and here is a live blog covering the night’s events courtesy of Rolling Stone. READ I knew that British host/comedian Russell Brand would bomb. Russell’s crude sense of humour is just way out there, and goes over most people’s heads, so I don’t understand why they chose him to host this year’s ceremony in front of a huge American audience. I don’t think I’ll bother tuning in when it airs again here []

VIDEO OF THE DAY: THE ‘HONORABLE’ PASTOR JAMES DAVID MANNING DEFENDS BRISTOL PALIN AND GOES OFF ON OBAMA AND HIS PARENTS (LORD HAVE MERCY!!!)

Any way the “good pastor” takes this opportunity to defend Sarah Palin ( Republican Vice Presidential) and her pregnant 17 year old daughter Bristol Palin. He then goes OFF on Barack Obama, his mother and his father. [Thanks Nessa] Your thoughts please….

UK MUSIC/VIDEO: SHORTMAN – ‘A MAN WHO DRAWS SOUND’

UK TALENT: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE DAMN RIGHT UGLY Check out the music video and track, ‘A Man Who Draws Sound’ from London based spoken word artist shortMan. ‘A Man Who Draws Sound’ is a well produced track, and shortMan is a talanted artist, but admittedly I got lost listening to this track. I have trouble grasping what he is talking about, and I am still struggling to make sense of it all. Your thoughts please…..

UK MUSIC/VIDEO: KANO – ‘HUSTLER’

When I first heard Kano perform this track at the 02 Wireless Festival back in July, I thought to myself, now he has to release this as a single. I love it. As some of you already know I’m not the biggest UK Hip Hop/Grime fan, but there are a few artists here that I have time for, and Kano is definitely one of them. [Thanks for sending link Versetti] Your thoughts please…..
