Beyonce and Jay-Z spend NYE in St. Barts where Beyonce is performing

How are the A-Listers spending their New Year’s Eve tonight?  They’re getting money.  Mariah, Ciara, Rihanna, etc. are all performing for some serious dough all over the world tonight.  And Beyonce’s no different.  She and her hubby Jay-Z just arrived into St. Barts yesterday as she’ll be performing for a reported $2 mill for a New Year’s Even concert tonight.  Jay-Z cancelled his appearance at his BFF Lebron James‘ 25th birthday party last night in Cleveland to jet off to the French island.  We’ve got the pics of the couple chillin’ on a yacht yesterday like they love to do.

Last year, Mariah performed on the island as well for NYE for the same reported amount thanks to the Libyan dictator Colonal Gaddafi’s son Saif’s request.

Are We Feelin’ This? The Klumps 2.0?

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-12-2009

Well look who TLC got to replace the Gosselins. They are the Coles and some foks are calling them the new version of The Klumps. According to the folks over at Celebitchy:

Called “One Big Happy Family” it chronicles a family of four in North Carolina, The Coles, in which everyone is obese. Hearing about this concept made me uncomfortable as it sets off “exploitative” bells. Savannah resident Ruby Gettinger has a reality show on The Style Network and from what I’ve seen it’s a sympathetic look into what a very large person has to go through. If handled well this show could be similar. It’s probably full of scripted moments meant to highlight their “otherness” however, like the clip available on Radar in which the Coles realize they’re too big to go on a ride at a water park. I think we can safely assume that the outing was set up by producers to ramp up the drama.

The show has really changed the Cole family’s outlook and health and they’re all losing weight and eating more fruits and vegetables now. In an interview with Radar, they talk about their new healthy lifestyle. The Cole family is made up of mom Tameka, 36, 380 lbs, dad Norris, 41, 340 lbs, daughter Amber, 16, at 348 lbs and son Shayne, 14, 308 lbs.

While I’m excited to see a black family reality show (who is not a celebrity family) on tv, many black people are rantting that this is just another stereotypical exploitation of the black community. Overly obese and the typical “fat and happy” blacks being portrayed with comedy. Check out the clips and speak on it.

TIDBITS: Flavor Flav+Ms. Tina Knowles Loves The Tabloid Gossip+Tiger Loses AT&T Sponsorship

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-12-2009

Check out the foolywang king of VH1’s new video:

WTF Flavor Flav? Just WTF?? This ish just CANNOT carry over into 2010. It just can’t. You’re like 75 now. Auto-tune does not cover that ish up. Just stop.

News on Beyonce and Tina Knowles and their love/hate relationship with gossip and Tiger loses a deal when you read the rest…

Beyonce and Tina Knowles

And who woulda thunk it. Tina Knowles is apparently a gossip junkie. I knew she was just like me and you when that House Of Damnitstillwrong creole glitter isn’t taking up her oxygen. Beyonce revealed in a recent interview that her mama is all into the tabloid fodder…and she’s kinda embarrassed by it:

“You know what? My mother loves to read celeb magazines, especially the racy tabloids!” said the star. “I can’t believe it sometimes. She’ll go to this magazine store in New York and buy 20 magazines while I’m standing next to her.

“I’m just praying nobody recognizes me while my mom is stacking up those magazines! But she loves reading the gossip about celebs and movie stars.

“I tell her a lot of the stuff isn’t true, but she says she gets a kick out of reading all the nonsense that gets printed, even about me!”

Even though Tina — who filed for divorce from Beyonce’s father Matthew this month — likes to laugh about the false stories written about her daughter, Beyonce couldn’t cope without her, particularly when she is on tour.

“My mom and my cousin are the leaders of my entourage,” she said. “They’re with me to help me stay grounded and relax and avoid going out on the town, which is something I rarely do anyway.”

Tina just moved up on my LOVES HER belt a few notches….

Tiger Woods loses AT&T sponsorship

And in other news, 2010 just isn’t off to a great start for Tiger Woods. After reports hit this week that he caused about $12 BILLION in losses for his advertisers after they stuck by him through Tigergate….AT&T just announced they are dropping him and will no longer be his sponsor. According to BBC News:

The company joins Accenture and Gillette in dropping support for the golfer after he admitted to “infidelity” to his wife.

AT&T’s logo appeared on the golfer’s bag. The company did not comment on its reasons for dropping Woods.

The company was also the host of the AT&T National PGA event in July – something it says it will continue to sponsor.

In a terse statement, AT&T said: “We are ending our sponsorship agreement with Tiger Woods and wish him well in the future.”

Could be because of Tiger’s “infinite break” announcement…or maybe they just didn’t feel like taking any more heat from their customers. Either way…Tiger’s going to have to find a new calling card….

O-M-G! Teddy Riley Beats Down His Daughter With A Guitar AND Tweets He’ll Do It Again!

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 29-12-2009

This ish just got crazier. Reports broke earlier today that Blackstreet singer and megaproducer Teddy Riley beat up his 18 year old daughter Taja Riley and her sister with a Rock Band game guitar.   Taja was just granted a restraining order against her father.  But what’s more shocking is the Tweet Teddy put out today.

Read that and more under the cut…

Teddy’s entire page was taken down afterwards. But that mighty Twitter search function still has his Tweets….

According to TMZ:

Teddy’s 18-year-old daughter Taja Riley was granted a temporary restraining order against her dad — claiming 43-year-old Teddy abused her and her older sister by “stomping, punching and bashing them” in his L.A. home on December 23.

In the documents, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Taja claims at one point Teddy, “lifted a Rock Band guitar and threatened to kill person(s) w/ it.”

Taja claims she suffered several injuries in the alleged altercation — including “bashes to temple, contusion on face” and “pain in knee.”

Teddy has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Taja. The next hearing is set for January.

What most people don’t realize is Taja is also one of Janet Jackson’s dancers. She is the only black girl in Janet’s new “Make Me” video. I get spanking a CHILD, but beating up an 18 year old in the face with a GUITAR? SMDH at Teddy. What’s really hood these days??

Ciara Gets $2 Mill For New Year’s Eve Gig+Ballers Love The Kids

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 29-12-2009

Ciara is headed to the country of Kazakhstan to do a New Year’s performance for a cool $2 million dollars, her management confirms. That’s the going rate for her goodies these days? Damn. Hats off to her.  Her team has been tweeting lately about prepping for the big trip. They are headed there today, and then CiCi’s off to Moscow. Nice.

On a side but related note, supposedly Kazakhstan paid Whitney Houston the same amount back in July of 2008. Womp.

Toy drives from a few ballers when you read the rest…


We don’t want to focus only on the well known names doing it up for their communities. We also like to show folks who fly under the radar who do great things:

Back in my hometown, Morris Peterson of the New Orleans Hornets (and a 9 year NBA vet) reminded the kiddies of the true meaning of Christmas. He hosted his 2nd annual Toy Drive benefiting the Morris Peterson Foundation in his current home of New Orleans. He brought tons-o-gifts to the kids at the Desire Street Youth Center. Sweet.

And Dahntay Jones of the Indiana Pacers showed the kids he cares by hosting his first ever Toy Drive benefiting the Dahntay Jones Foundation last Wednesday. He brought toys galore to the hundreds of terminally ill children at the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
