Happy New Year KidduNot!!! And Just to think this was made off the strength of my people who encouraged me to do this! We've made it thru the year...and now we're on to 2009! So lets quickly move forward....Guys, I going out tonight to celebrate!!
I will give pictures afterwards
Hip Hop's Big Momma-Queen Bee , Lil' Kim is not pleased with the performances and writer's for the film, Notorious, and she has a few words for Faith & Ms. Wallace, the two who are supposedly behind the film.
HHW: What are your thoughts on the Biggie movie?
LK: I want the world to be clear; I have NOTHING to do with that movie. That movie is Faith and Ms. Wallace's story. Most of the story is bullshit especially the way my character is being depicted. There are a lot of lies in the movie. I had no idea it was even going into production, until one day I got a call from my manager at the time, Lance "Un" Riviera, and he said " Yo! You know they caste this girl Naturi [Naughton] to play you in the Biggie movie," I was outraged. I was upset, because to me, to do an autobiography about someone's life, you want it to be as authentic as possible. I was not involved in the movie. They never came and asked me anything about Biggie, but again this was Faith and Ms. Wallace's movie.
HHW: So it's safe to say you didn't approve of the casting?
LK: I couldn't believe it. I was outraged.
HHW: So what did you do?
LK: I went with my lawyer and my manager over to the production company's office in downtown Manhattan, (I never went to the set) and I demanded to see the script along with the audition tapes to see all of the people who auditioned for this role, and find out why they didn't contact me to help pick who was gonna play me. When I viewed the tapes, Naturi was the worst out of all of them. Regardless of the fact she looked nothing like me, when I saw the audition tapes, she was the worst and I had no idea why they picked her. It seemed she was the total opposite of what I am. In my opinion a really seasoned actress would have contacted the original person they are portraying to deliver their best performance ever. The only two people who know me are God and myself so the audience is getting jiped in this movie.
HHW: Who was involved in selecting her?
LK: I have no idea. Again this is Faith and Ms. Wallace's story. I would've never picked Naturi to play me, but I think they were just trying to depict me a certain way and that was so wrong. At the end of the day, if you want a damn good movie, you're supposed to go to the sources themselves. I mean, you got Cease and some of the other mafia members playing themselves, but they didn't want me to play myself 'cause it would've been to real. They didn't even ask me as a common courtesy or out of respect, and the reason why is because they wanted to lie and make up a story. In Naturi's defense though, I feel really sorry for her because they totally used her.
HHW: Did they ever approach you to be involved?
LK: No, Never
HHW: What are some of the discrepancies with the movie?
LK: There were so many. They were disrespecting me terrible in that script but the one that sticks out to me was in a scene allegedly when Ms. Wallace came to see one of Biggie's shows for the first time and I was supposed to be so mad at him about something that I pulled my panties off on stage and mooned the crowd with my p----. What the f---?! Come on, don't you think that would've been in the history archives? They're using Lil Kim to sensationalize their bulls--- lying'-a-- story. That was the last version of the script I saw, which somebody had snuck to me, 'cause people didn't want me to see it.
HHW: How did you feel about who they cast to play Biggie and the other characters?
LK: Personally I would've never picked Gravy either, that's not my baby as I knew him. I'm a realist. If he gave me that Biggie aura I would've been able to separate. But, there's nothing that comes off of him that says; that's Biggie to me. I know Biggie is like "come on, how they gone do me like that?" The only person who came close to who they portrayed in my opinion was the girl that Faith picked to play her. But again this is Faith's story. I could never tell you what Faith and Biggie's relationship was like so how in the hell can Faith or Ms. Wallace or anyone say what my relationship with Biggie was like?
HHW: What happened next?
LK: My lawyer told them they were going to have to do something, and in order to even use my likeness or my name they had to pay me. On top of that they got the writer to talk to me. I knew something was fishy about them having the writer call me, when I spoke to the writer I felt like he was trying to play me so I wouldn't give up anything. I knew I wouldn't have control of how I was depicted.
HHW: Did you tell them any other stuff they used?
LK: I corrected the writer about Biggie's nickname for me. He had written that Biggie called me Big Momma. Biggie never called me Big Momma. As a matter of fact, he didn't even like that name for me. He used to call me "Mookie" I told the writer that and he was like, "I didn't know that." I was like, "yeah, it's a lot of things y'all don't know 'cause y'all ain't come and get the real from me. He even tried to get me to say things to go along with their story line, but I wasn't having it, 'cause I peeped this bulls--- from the beginning.
HHW: Did you see the King Magazine with Naturi on the cover?
HHW: How did you feel about how she was made up to look like you?
LK: Although it was supposed to be a tribute to me, I didn't like it because I didn't feel like they captured the essence of that time period
HHW: Have you spoken with Faith and Ms. Wallace?
LK: No. Honestly, I don't have no words for them. But, one thing I will say is, I've had enough and I'm about to expose them both. That's it. I've been quiet for a long time. You don't hear me talking about none of them, and to be honest with you I'm really disappointed in Faith. I remember a few years ago she did a magazine interview where she talked about having a lot of respect and love for me. She said, "Kim was Biggie's girlfriend and I was Biggie's wife," and how that was hard for her to deal with. Then later on she writes a book and in it she tried to change it and say some stupid s--- about how I was his jump off. I laugh at her because I remember years ago being in the studio with my then boyfriend at the time, Scott Storch. We're in the studio, Faith was in another room and she called Scott's phone and said "Oh Kim's with you? Tell her I said hi and that I got love for her and hope that her and I can talk soon and be friends." I was like "wow!" I thought that was really big, considering that I'm a woman who her husband was in love with. I felt like that was real big. Me and Scott even thought of doing a record with her, thinking about how big it would've been for hip hop and for the Biggie family. She even sent her daughter China, who I love and took care of sometimes down to me, and China was like, "I love you Kim and my mom told me to tell you she loves you and hi." But, here we go years later, I guess the funds must be low; because somebody told Faith, "you gotta write a book and you gotta come at Kim in the book." It shocked me, 'cause I thought we had come to some kind of unity. I thought it was really tasteless. She could never play poker because she already exposed her hand. Faith, you know me, I'm an extremist I go hard. Once I start I don't stop. Why would you wake up this sleeping giant?
HHW: And, what about Ms. Wallace?
LK: There's nothing Faith or Ms. Wallace could do to stop me from reppin' B.I.G. all day. I'm gonna always do that. They want to talk about people exploiting Biggie, to me this is the worst way you could exploit his name; by disrespecting people who was around him who he had major love for. The truth is gonna be known. Like how a while back Ms. Wallace was on the radio talking about how we never mourned together and that she never knew me. It's crazy 'cause she and I lived together in Biggie's house for almost eight months after Biggie died. On top of all that, out of the kindness of my heart and the love I had for Biggie, I share five percent of my publishing with Ms. Wallace; just out of love, making sure that if I ate, she and the kids ate. And at the end of the day, this is how she repays me? It's time for Ms. Wallace to be exposed.
HHW: Will you go see the movie when it comes out?
LK: Hell No! I might watch it on bootleg, for legal reasons. I don't mess with Cease and them at all, but even they know this is not the real Biggie story. If they say something different, I ain't mad, 'cause I know they're rolling along for their little three minutes of fame, doing what they gotta do to hold on. I just want people to know, I have nothing to do with the film and I'm not supporting it. I'm Currently working on my life story where people will get the Naked Truth about Kimberly Denise Jones a/k/a Lil Kim.
I totally agree, I feel Kim....To do a TRUE STORY, they should have reached out to the real members of the cast, like Kim.

Beyonce (pictured above as Sasha Fierce doing something "Sasha Fierce"-esque) has another reason to celebrate over the holidays. On Christmas day, "Single Ladies" landed at the No. 1 spot on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. This single is now at its third and sixth week atop them both, respectively. The track sold 149,000 downloads in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
There's not much movement in the top 10 of the Hot 100 this week, as T.I.'s "Live Your Life" featuring Rihanna holds at No. 2 and Lady GaGa's "Just Dance" featuring Colby O'Donis remains No. 3. Kanye West's "Heartless" is the chart's greatest airplay gainer and rises 7-4.
Britney Spears' "Womanizer" is up 6-5, Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold" jumps 8-6 and Taylor Swift's "Love Story" climbs 11-7. Swift's "Fearless" (Big Machine) is in a third non-consecutive week at No. 1 on The Billboard 200.
Another West song, "Love Lockdown," moves 10-8, while T.I.'s "Whatever You Like" falls 5-9 and Beyonce's "If I Were a Boy" falls 9-10 to round out the top portion.
How well do you think "Diva"/"Halo" will do on the charts??? If you've seen those new videos then you know things are looking good for Queen Bey!
This is what the guys at Oscar-watch are reporting... The clear front runner for Best Picture is Slumdog Millionaire... this is a definite must-see. It's in indie flick so you might have to actually search for a theater, but trust that it's worth the search. Of course, Dark Knight is not doing too poorly either. Heath Ledger will probably take the best supporting actor win... Another must-see that is currently out right now is Milk. It's about the first openly-gay politician, Harvey Milk. Sean Penn is the front runner for Best Actor because for his role in that movie. Make sure you notice that our girl Taraji P. Henson is being considered for an Oscar for her role in the Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Even if she doesn't win, this will definitely increase her visibility. And you must admit that she has come a looong way since Baby Boy. I have yet to see The Wrestler, but apparently it has some really good reviews and is front-runner in several categories.
The number that is next to the movie denotes the amount of awards that it has won already

The iconic Eartha Kitt died today from colon cancer at the age of 81. The legendary performer won two Emmies and was nominated a Tony and a Grammy. For a great article about the original cat woman and self-proscribed "sex kitten," check out this article by the Washington Post.
ikidduNot, New York was filled with like a thousand Santas of all shapes & sizes running around the city. Crazy right! It was fun tho, the Santas had the whole city on lock!! Me and the homie A.C. hit up the city, but clearly we didn't know what to expect one we got there. Certainly it wasn't this, lol.
[video] These Santas be jamming! : )

We made sure we had a good ass time nevertheless.
We got some bad news to report out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Reports indicate that an unfortunate accident took the life of a little girl on Christmas eve. Supposedly a 2-year-old child was visiting the home of rapper Lil Boosie’s and was accidentally struck & killed when the girl's father backed his car over her. Sad sad sad! Lets keep this family in our prayers.

Guess who's back? Fat Joe is, and he's brought Man of The Hour Ron Browz and Lil' Weezy with him.
Remember I was telling you guys about BBQ's? Well I went back, this time I dined with more friends and caught up on some good times! I ordered their infamous "sticky wings", which were covered in their honey basted sauce and a Mango Margaritia. Mmm Mmm good! Shout out to the homie Ryan for rocking with me for the weekend!
She will really say anything out of her mouth... but that's why we love her.
Sometimes I love it... Sometimes I hate it... But I NEVER MISS AN EPISODE
Saturday Night Live
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made this year the funniest that SNL has had in a few years. Even the white guy that plays Obama is funny... Plus with performances by Kanye, Adele, Beyonce, T.I., and Mariah it became impossible to miss an episode.
Again... Tina Fey is one of the best comediennes of our time. Team her up with Alec Baldwin and funnyman Tracy Morgan and you've got a must-see!
It's like the only Black tv show that is actually worth watching... How could this not be on the list?
The Real Housewives of Atlanta
A guilty obsession for many of us, this tv show may not help the image of Atlanta, but its entertainment value is incontestable.
Weeds is reason enough alone (and it's about the only reason) to upgrade your cable service to include Showtime! A MILF who sells drugs and never gets caught is always a good look...
Two golden globes, six Emmies, and it's only been around for one year and a half. Mad Men is cable television at its finest.

Ganguro literally "black-face", is a Japanese fashion trend among many Japanese girls which peaked in popularity from the late 1990s to the early 2000s, an outgrowth of chapatsu hair dyeing. The Shibuya and Ikebukuro districts of Tokyo are the center of ganguro fashion.
I guess its cool to look like a broke down bag lady that's 10 year old. Check out hello Kitty.
