VIDEO: TIONNE WATKINS (T-BOZ) RECALLS THE TIME TLC HELD MUSIC MOGUL CLIVE DAVIS HOSTAGE

TLC group member Tionne Watkins aka T-Boz recently appeared on comedian/actress Mo’nique’s new show and recalls the time TLC threatened music mogul Clive Davis with a gun. The group sold millions of records and made the label $75 million, but they only received $50,000 each.     T-Boz, Chilli and Left Eye (RIP) later walked in to Arista Records and held Davis hostage while demanding to know the whereabouts of their ‘muthaf**kin money’. The music industry really did shaft TLC.

UK TV: BNP LEADER NICK GRIFFIN SET TO APPEAR ON QUESTION TIME TONIGHT!

British National Party leader Nick Griffin will appear on Question Time tonight (Oct 22nd) and I for one will definitely be tuning in to watch this debate!   People are getting themselves all worked up over Nick’s appearance on the show tonight, and the BBC has been put under immense pressure to ban him from the proceedings.  But I personally don’t see what all the fuss is about. There is no point in pretending that the racist British National Party doesn’t exist. They already have a following that is steadily growing []

VIDEO: TYRA BANKS SHOW – ‘ WOMEN WHO ABUSE THEIR MEN’

Disgusting! If the abusive women featured on this show were men the audience would be baying for  blood and Tyra’s line of questioning wouldn’t have been so “gentle”. You can just sense an air of sympathy for these women throughout their interviews, especially when they put on the water works. But I don’t have an ounce of sympathy for those disturbed monsters (who both deserve to get their faces slapped off) and I’m glad that both men saw sense in the end and dumped them.

KANYE WEST VICTIM OF HOAX

This morning the news (posted on a fake FOX News website) of rapper Kanye West’s untimely death was the top trending topic on Twitter. But all you Kanye fans out there will be relieved to know that the man is still in fact living and this was just some sick joke. Hours later Kanye’s girlfriend the remarkably talented Amber Rose, took to her Twitter page and expressed her disgust and outrage. She basically went on about it not being funny and standing by []

NEW MUSIC: RIHANNA – ‘RUSSIAN ROULETTE’

Via Pinboard Blog Yes Rihanna has taken a break away from traipsing up and down the streets of New York City like it’s a catwalk, looking like mutton dressed as lamb (on the odd occasion) to release her “highly anticipated” new single Russian Roulette. In my opinion it sounds like a mid 1980s Pop ballad. Mad News Verdict: Dry! Russian Roulette is nothing to write home about. Click here to listen. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
