Of course, Jamie did it in the only way he knows how — pure hilarity! READ MORE

The hot topic with the Jennifer Hudson nowadays seems to be her weight. In an interview with People magazine, Jennifer admitted that she didn’t know she was over weight. In fact, she said she found out she was overweight in an interview on the red carpet when someone asked her, “So how does it feel to be plus-sized in Hollywood?”. Apparently the question through Jennifer for a loop because she said, “In the neighborhood I’m from in Chicago, a 16 is normal. But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out”.

In his first interview in 5 years, Dave Chapelle gave details on a number of things ranging from a recent story that ran saying he wasn’t funny on stage all the way to why he won’t return to t.v. The interesting interview was held on the radio station 94.9. On not being funny in Miami, he stated that the REAL reason was because the entire front row at the casino gig was full of Seminole Indian hecklers. He said it was difficult trying to talk while they were talking especially when they were directly in his face. He even admitted that it DOES get to him when people start booing because he does want to do well. READ MORE

At first appearance, Attack The Block – a new British film set in the apartment blocks of South London, seems like a cheesy movie about aliens attacking earth. Upon watching the film, I was pleasantly surprised to find the movie to be witty and provocative. The film also is socially critical, highlighting many of the underlying issues that caused the explosive events in South London and across the United Kingdom. John Boyega, a 19-year-old newcomer, plays the lead, Moses – a rough, neglected teenager who leads a ragtag gang of four other boys. Born and raised in the streets of South London, Boyega easily connects with the role, leaving very little doubt as to the authenticity of the character he portrays.

Attack The Block opens with fireworks over London and in the midst of them, Moses and his crew begin robbing a woman as she walks home alone. An alien decides to crash-land on top of them, ruining the party. The alien then attacks Moses while he is trying to rob the car it destroyed in the process of landing, so he chases it down and kills it…and the trouble begins. READ MORE

Rock icon Lenny Kravitz will be featured on UPTOWN Magazine’s cover for the 2011 style issue this month. The article includes an intimate interview with Kravitz, as well as Jill Jones, a good friend and fellow musician. From the sneak peaks, I gather that Lenny is an everyday, round-the-way kinda dude. He doesn’t have security and raised his and Lisa Bonet’s child, Zöe, as a single father. He also sings the praises of the late Teena Marie as well, saying,

“She would cook a lot. It was here and Penny Johnson, Rick James’ little sister. They looked after me, fed me. She took me to concerts. She took care of a lot of folks.The big reason why I am here [is] because of this sister. She was for real. She was self-contained, a multi-instrumentalist, a writer, producer.”

He paints an awesome picture of Teena Marie, showing us a side of her that we rarely got to see. He also discusses his childhood as an interracial child in a racialized society.

Keri Hilson took a break from her tour with Lil’ Wayne, I Am Still Music, to sit down and give an interview to WILDAtlanta. They talked about a number of things ranging to her diet on tour, what separates the boys from the men, as well as how she is VERY unforgiving towards men who have done her dirty. What stood I out to me was when the interviewer asked her if it felt great to be back at home. READ MORE
