Word Up: Da Brat Tat Tat

Recently released from jail after doing a 2 1/2 years stint for aggravated assault at an ATL nightclub, Da Brat has hit the ground running. In a recent interview with CNN, Da Brat discussed her autobiography, how the entertainment industry has changed and the possibility of landing a reality show. When discussing the reality show, she says, “I’m working on getting one now. The sad thing about it is most of these networks want the fighting, they want the drunkenness, they want the confrontational and that’s not me anymore. I’ve outgrown that and I don’t want that to be the main focus. Been there, done that and been through hell because of that. I want to show people who I am, introduce them to my family, where I’ve come from, how I’m helping people with my charity work. I know it sounds boring, but that comes with a lot… of bumps in the road. So I’m currently shopping for a deal now.” She has also released a mixtape, “Life After Death,” which can be downloaded from Global14.com.

Looks like Da Brat is trying to get her grown woman on, think she can pull it off?

Jill Scott On Being Dickmatized

Nope, I didn’t mean to say mesmerized but indeed dickmatized. Jill Scott confessed to Jamie Foster Brown from Sister 2 Sister that she was once dickmatized.

What exactly is “dickmatized”?
“Where you get caught up in the whole sexuality of your relationship but it’s not going anywhere… Just somebody giving you the goods but not necessarily giving you the rest—or not expecting the rest from them. What I’ve discovered is, although it may be a lot of fun, it is also a waste of time and you might be blocking your blessing—blocking somebody who wants to be more to you than just a great time in your life.

How did you become un-dickmatized?
“Just realizing what I have to offer. I’m so much more than my flesh!” .

It seems like Ciara is making her way back home. According to reports by Billboard, Ciara has left Jive Records and will now be joining forces with L.A. Reid (that’s who originally signed her back in 2003) under the restructured Epic Records. This looks to be a great business move for Ciara because then she would be top priority for Epic Records.

Ciara’s career is going nowhere but up now that her career will be under Reid’s direction. If you didn’t already know, Reid is responsible for helping artists like Mariah Carey, Usher, Toni Braxton, and even Kanye West reach multi-platinum sales. Sounds like my girl Ciara is in good company and I wish her nothing but the best! Do you think this is a good business move for Ciara?

R. Kelly Home Foreclosed

R. Kelly’s new album “Love Letter” must not be selling it needs to because he is now facing a $2.9 million foreclosure on his mansion located in Olympia Fields (a southern suburb of Chicago).

Supposedly R. Kelly hasn’t paid his mortgage on the 11,000 sq. ft. Mansion because he was trying to force the bank to modify his loan…well at least that’s what his people are claiming. Too bad his former managers over at Prospect Park LLC are saying a completely different story. READ MORE

Amber Rose Gets A Wiz Tattoo !!!

Amber Rose has added yet another tattoo to her ever growing collection. Rose has gotten Wiz Khalifa’s  name tattooed on her body. Although she is known for showing off some of her more voluptuous body parts, the tattoo is not on any of those. Instead, it is on her finger.

Amber got 3 letters that state CAM which is short for the rapper’s real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz.  Interestingly enough Wiz got AMB tatted on his hand back in May.  In my opinion, tattoo ink symbolizes forever. I don’t think that’s a good idea because of the industry that she’s in where most artists tend to only be together 2-3 years. READ MORE

Just so yall know Whitney Houston has ditched her toy Ray-J for R&B singer Tyrese Gibson or should I say that’s the false rumor!  They saying Tyrese and Whitney met at a pre-Grammy party that was hosted by Clive Davis on Valentine’s Day and it has been on since then. True to cougar standard, Whitney called Tyrese after the party and asked him out. Of course, Tyrese is denying all of this according to his tweets.

Tyrese Gibson doesn’t want to have any romantic connection with Whitney Houston and is now laughing off recent claims that he is secretly dating the Whitney, Tyrese stressed the word “Never” in a clarifying message on Twitter about dating her.

“Negative blogs, press, blurbs, people spreading negative things. Rumors. I rest WELL at night cause none of these things matter anymore..,” the 32-year-old first reacted. In another tweet, he posted a link to the dating story by Rumor Fix and wrote, “Man if ya’ll don’t GTFOH w this dumb s**t.. Hahahahahaahahaa… #NEVER… I repeat.. NEVER..!!” READ MORE
