50 CENT – THE MONEY AND THE POWER “REALITY” SHOW TRAILER

50 Cent’s new MTV “reality” show ‘The Money And The Power’ will debut in the US on November 6th. When it does eventually air in the UK I doubt that I will be tuning in on a regular basis. I’m tired of watching fake, scripted “reality” show vehicles. It’s just lazy television. But I am loving Fifty’s new pearly white teeth! I might just tune in to stare in to his mouth. Will you be tuning in?

THE FOUR TOPS STAR LEVI STUBBS DIES

All the greats seem to leaving us…… Levi Stubbs, whose distinctive, rough-hewn voice and pleading vocal style elevated the Four Tops’ soul classics to masterpieces, died today at his Detroit home. He was 72. The Michigan native had been in ill health since being diagnosed with cancer in 1995. A stroke and other health problems led him to stop touring in 2000. Stubbs was born in Detroit and grew up with the future Tops in the city’s North End. Stubbs and Abdul []

PICS/LIVE RUN DOWN: MOBO AWARDS 2008 (WEMBLEY ARENA – LONDON)

I am sitting here watching the awards ceremony right now. So far…..  Mel B and Rev Run are doing a decent job of hosting the ceremony. They have good chemistry. John Legend opened the show. His performance was surprisingly weak and he was failing to hit the high notes. Estelle won Best UK Female. Congratulations! But her dress looked like it was designed by Tina Knowles and she has now developed an annoying transatlantic twang. Leona Lewis won Best Album (‘Spirit’). She wasn’t there to collect her []

QUOTE OF THE DAY: DAMON DASH

“I wouldn’t blame David if he was jealous. I was hanging out with his beautiful wife all the time. I think he thought there was something going on between the two of us. I know they had a conversation about it. ‘Everyone knew we were just friends. But who can blame him? I’m a fly guy!” (Damon ‘ bruk pocket’ Dash talks about his past business relationship with Victoria Beckham (when he attempted to reinvent her as the next big R&B star), and implies that []

QUOTE OF THE DAY: CHRISTINA AGUILERA

“I’m here to support all the good that comes out of Africa, rather than all the negative things we’re always  hearing about the country (The London Paper)”. (Christina talks about her then up and coming appearance at The Africa Rising Festival which took place at the Royal Albert Hall last night in London) Somebody really should of told Christina before she agreed to appear at this event that Africa is a CONTINENT, not a country……

FIRE YOUR STYLIST: BEYONCE

Beyonce was photographed outside MTV’s TRL studios in Manhatten New York yesterday (October 14th). What goes through her mind when picking out outfits for an event? She never gets it right. If its not the outfit then it’s the choice of accessories that let her down. Anyway what is this? Her new alternative ballerina look? I have a sneaking suspicion that her mother, resident stylist/seamstress, Tina Knowles is responsible for this mess. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, the woman deserves to be locked up for her heinous crimes []
