UK TV: CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER 2009

Celebrity Big Brother 2009 will launch his week (Friday) and thankfully the rumour that Whitney Houston would appear on the show where Z-list celebrities/non entities go to lay the remains of their once illustrious careers to rest for good was just that – a rumour. Anyway the ‘celebs’ who will enter the BB House on Friday are as follows….. Former Sugababes group member Mutya Buena. I guess abruptly leaving a successful group and going solo wasn’t the best move for old Mutya…. 90s rap []

MUSIC: STYLES P FT GIGGS – ‘ALL I KNOW IS PAIN’

Rapper Styles P teams up with UK rapper Giggs on this track, although it’s clear that his isn’t an official collaboration…… Anyway I really like ‘All I Know Is Pain’. It’s dark and moody, just how I’ve always liked my Hip Hop/Rap to sound, and I am a  Styles P fan. Your thoughts please…..

UK MUSIC: GHETTS FT GRIMINAL – ‘DON’T PHONE ME’

UK MUSIC: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY Ghetts (formally known as ‘Ghetto’) features on this single a long side Griminal. ‘Don’t Phone Me’ makes me laugh and the sound of Ghetts voice takes some getting used to….. The production isn’t bad…..hmmmmm…. well I’ve heard worse……… I wouldn’t say this is good, and I wouldn’t say it’s bad or ugly. It’s just a funny track that I would describe as being… so so…. The 11 – 16 year old demographic will love this! Your thoughts []

DID WHITE VIGILANTE GROUPS BLOCKADE SMALL TOWN POST KATRINA NEW ORLEANS AND MURDER BLACKS?

Earlier this week, A.C. Thompson of  The Nation revealed that after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005, white vigilante groups patrolled the city, blockaded streets, and shot at least eleven black men. Color of Change plans on organising a campaign to force Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and state officials to investigate the shootings, because “Louisiana’s broken law enforcement agencies have refused to investigate these crimes.” I can believe this happened.   It will be interesting to see what happens next, now that this story is all over the []
