Apparently Sacha "Bruno" Baron Cohan, thought it'll be cool to just sit his bare a$$ & sack on a grown man's face... Uhhh No!
--Shocked in the moment Em' yelled "Get this MuthaF**ker off me", just before his bodyguards removed Bruno from his position.
MTV has a lot of A** kissing to do after this!
--For those who missed it, Check out this Clip...
Rule # 1: Keep your nude photos private or don't take them at all. I wish someone would have warned poor RiRi this important fact when she decided to show off her goods. Apparently, Rihannas "nude" pictures that surfaced a few weeks ago may have cost her the coveted cover of VOGUE magazine. A close friend of Rihanna was quoted saying
"It could have been Rihanna’s shining moment: the cover of Vogue! But when the nude pictures hit cyberspace, her once-in-a-lifetime chance was gone in a flash. Rihanna and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour had been talking for weeks about doing the cover and an inside spread, says a close friend of the singer, who adds that the two even chatted about it at the Met Costume Institute Gala on May 4. “Anna told her Vogue absolutely loves her and really wanted to work with her. Rihanna was ecstatic!” But since the photos came out, says the friend, “Anna hasn’t returned any of her calls. Rihanna’s so upset!”
Now being that there has only been 3 other black women on Vogue (Oprah, Jennifer Hudson, Michelle Obama) I would have personally enjoyed seeing Rihanna on the cover. To put it in perspective you really need to be careful of what pictures your taking, and who you are taking them with. It can bite you in the A%@ later.....
Apparently still trying to show the world his transition into a grown man, Bow Wow releases an almost X-rated video for "Pole in My Basement"-- off his recent album, New Jack City II.
Kids cover your eyes-- as we show you how "Lil' Bow Wow" has grown...
This is actually pretty interesting. It's good, yet surprising, to see Foxy Brown take another female under her wing. OJ Da Juice Man also makes an appearance at the end of the vid. Check out the full video (and Foxy Brown's face) in the On The Come Up 2009 DVD
Saturday, Kimora spent hours at a time keeping her fan followers updated on her delivery via her Twitter page. The fashion guru not only tweeted updates while at the hospital, she also twitpic'd a picture of herself in her hospital gown.
Kimora, who gave birth to a baby boy Saturday night, already has two daughters — Ming Lee, 9, and Aoki Lee, 6 — with Russell Simmons. The newborn is the first child for her new hubby, Djimon, 45.

Estelle, who is always up for a good cause, hit up H&M in NYC this week to unveil the Fashion Against AIDS collection.
I love the message on the shirt. Though sex can be important to many, It's also very important that everyone knows their status, get tested!
Spectac's bump & grind video, has definitely put all eye's on him lately-- causing the world to speculate on his sexuality, imitate his "challenge", & now make a hilarious cartoon skit on this whole closet-outing...
I can't stop laughing --Check this out...
Short, but sweet. Lady Gaga is truly an entertainer. This short interview is enough to make anybody believe that the artist is crazy as hell. But whatever her crazy ass is selling, I'm buying, because she always keeps me entertained.

When albums aren't selling & all else fails, result to fast food--just ask Ciara! She certainly has a fascination with fast food promotion. First McDonalds Now KFC?
Spotted: The Dream & Christina Milian Attend a Private Dinner for Electrik Red in NYC.
Just as I'm starting to get use to this couple, something starts to urks me about these two. I'm not sure if it's the Dream's snug-tight gear or Christina's roots. It's something, just can't quite place my finger on it.
IT HURTS ME TO SEE THE OLD AND VERY WRONG VERSION OF THE PARANOID VIDEO GET LEAKED ALL OVER THE NET WHILE I WAS ON AN 11 HR FLIGHT AND COULDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. IT'S JUST FRUSTRATING WHEN THIS STUFF HAPPENS BECAUSE I REALLY CARE ABOUT THE PRODUCT AND SINCE VIDEOS NEVER GET PLAYED ANY WAY YOU MIGHT AS WELL TWEAK THEM AND MAKE THEM AS SPECIAL AS POSSIBLE. THE VERSION THAT GOT LEAKED FROM THE CAMERA PHONE LAST WEEK IS AT LEAST A LITTLE CLOSER TO THE FINAL PRODUCT. THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR YOUR SUPPORT BUT THAT VIDEO WAS NOT UP TO MY STANDARDS. HERE'S SOME SCREEN SHOTS FROM THE REAL VIDEO
He also leaked some screenshots from the offical video...
It's quite evident whose side Eve is taking in the Rihanna and Chris Brown fiasco. After rapping the lyrics "What kind of love from a ni**a would black your eye?," in the 2001 Domestic Abuse Victim anthem, Love is Blind, the self-proclaimed “Pitbull in a skirt” has took to her Twitter this week to express her rage for Chris, who allegedly assaulted Rihanna in February.
“hold on hold on!! im just gonna reach out to some of ya’ll out there and say this bluntly, why do ppl keep tryin to protect chris browns a–

Boy she didn't hold her tongue a bit! She let him have it...
Check out the beautiful ladies of Electrik Red (dressed to the T of course) in the airport making signs.
And I'm Buying!
I'm soooo disappointed in their promotion! I recently found out that their album isn't even in some Targets, K-Marts, etc., forcing some fans to resort to Amazon to cop it!

--Okay, Tiny is acceptable... even expected, being T.I.'s just been locked up-- but Toya!?... Besides the mother of Weezy's oldest daughter Reginae-- Who the f%#k is she??...
The kidd F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S is back on the scene, premiering his new video "It's My Time"--& scooped up rising artist Jeremih on his way.

Who even spends big buck$ on designer duds anymore? While it’s true that I've cut cost due to the economic woes, which has caused havoc in my life, the reality is that there are still a few good finds out there--ask Moses Landrum IIII. As the recession takes us through it's course, a lot of people are cutting costs more & more when it comes to their budgets, but Mr. Landrum, who knows all too well about economical woes, wants to pass word that it's encouraging to know you can still maintain an unapologetic appearance while struggling through the financial crisis.

Harlem's own DJ Webstar is back at it, after he had the world buzzin off his "chicken noodle soup". --He's now teamed up with Jim Jones & Juelz in his latest video, "Dancing on Me".
--It's Definitely a club banger!...But can this wonder make another hit...?
--So with all the recent side talk on Spectac's grinding abilities, he apparently decided to clear up any suspicions... I think?-- & speaks with Kendra G, about all his swivels and shakes in this recent video.
He goes in on explaining why he couldn't be gay, & ask why men are tuning in to watch him twist & turn in pink briefs...
He also states this is the first of many to come-- Wow!...
My question is-- Wasn't the video a "challenge" directed towards male dancers... So who'd he expect to watch?... & Since when were Bow Wow & Trey Songz dancers? ...Hmmm
Check out the interview, & tell me How You Doin?...

Pregnant R&B singer KELIS celebrated her impending motherhood with a baby shower in New York at the weekend, surrounded by friends and family.
The Milkshake hitmaker, who is expecting estranged husband Nas' child, held a bash at the Big Apple's Soho House on Saturday (23May09), with guests gifting her with designer baby gear, including a Louis Vuitton diaper bag, reports the New York Post.
Kelis, who is due to give birth this summer (09), filed for divorce from rap superstar Nas in April (09), citing "irreconcilable differences" for the breakdown of their four year marriage.
Both stars are seeking joint legal and physical custody of the unborn child.
I love Rihanna in this video. I like how it's based solely around her.
She killed this performance of "Home."
Eminem sits comfortable at the throne-- landing on top of the Billboard 200 sales chart this week, selling sold over 608,200 copies of his comeback disc Relapse. Em has broken many records and this time, Eminem has broken the record for the highest selling album of ’09. According to Nielsen’s SoundScan, the disc has already gone gold after it's first week in stores. That being said, where does this leave Asher Roth? Is there any room for him anymore?
With Eminem's return, Asher Roth may have one of the shortest lived careers in hip hop. Asher went from internet superstar to the bottom of the barrel in a matter of months. Much of his downfall is believed to have came after his reference of Don Imus’ infamous line about “Nappy Headed Hoes,” which caused a bit of controversy in the hip-hop community. Is there any recovery from this type of injury? Are the Eminem comparisons hurting his album sells as well?
No matter how much Roth tries to distance himself from that of the “Eminem clone,” he can't shake the Eminem comparisons. Since debuting on all the hip hop blogs, that's been their main focus--comparing his sound to that of Eminem's.
When Eminem spoke on the comparisons last month with XXL mag, this is what he had to say-- "The stuff that I’ve heard from him honestly, which certainly isn’t enough for me to make my own opinion and say, ‘Yeah, he does sound like me’ or ‘No, he doesn’t.’ But the couple of songs I’ve head, I don’t really think he does. You know what I mean? He’s doing his own thing. I can respect it, too, because at the end of the day, I think he’s dope."
Me personally, I don't think that their rapping styles are even close to the same, they just audibly sound exactly alike.
Despite the comparison, Soundscan shows the rapper's Asleep in the Bread Aisle, released April 21, has sold 112,100 copies in 4 weeks. And that's not half bad, considering 50% of his following is digital--online. But still, is that enough to keep Asher in the game? Can he solidify himself as a solo artist, and not a clone? Or has the hip hop community already cast him out and it's simply too late?
It’s gonna be interesting to see how this one plays out.
I'm only giving you a taste of what's to come on KidduNotTV....
Let's just say, I've been with the homie P.M.T. this weekend...& we seem to make magic man, Roy & Siegfried. Listen as P.M.T. sings live on an elevator. He puts on a show any & everywhere he goes, there's no shame in his game.
We've discussed a few things for our show--I love the ideas we've come up with...Without giving too much away, here is a clip of what to expect. This video was not shot with the Hv30. We were intoxicated & just felt like playing around with the digi cam....enjoy & feel free to give feedback.
KidduNotTV coming soon!
Episode: Follow Maestro & his friend Kellen as they make their way to Las Vegas visiting UNDFTD & The Hard Rock, find out about Jermaine Dupri's new venture "The Ocean's 7" and hear Nelly preview a new verse in the elevator.
Soulja Boy finally makes it to The View. You can't hate on this kid's success, you just can't.
His songs are like my hidden guilty pleasures. I randomly love his song "Kiss Me Thru The Phone", which he also performed on The View, along with Sammie. Check it out
Wow, I'm lost for words after watching this damn video. From the spin in the beginning to the swirling of his hips..What is wrong with Spectacular? Is this how industry has-beens attempt to get there buzz back??
Okay let me just explain something, first of all, 'dudes' are not grinding out here, Spec! Only in Miami do you see that. And to be quite frank, Bow Wow, Trey Songz, Chris Brown or anybody else who were called out in this video would probably have NO IDEA what it means to grind.
I'm not sure if this is an act of homosexuality or a true R&B challenge...Who issues' a grind challenge to his male counterparts?
Someone please weigh in & help me out...
This is the most creative video Ive ever seen. Oren Lavie is the artist behind this song titled "Her morning elegance", as well as the director (along with Yuval & Merav Nathan). Not many artists can deliver a solid record and an even better video to go along with it. It really only enhances the song. Videos like this force you to expand your mind and start thinking outside the box. It is very inspiring for the artistic minds. We all search for inspiration in many different ways and places. This video definitely leads you in that path.....
Check it out.
Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson lost his 4 year old daughter (Exodus Tyson) Tuesday May 26th, 2009 in Phoenix Arizona. Exodus reportedly got her neck caught in a treadmill cord at her Phoenix home, according to police.
According to reports Exodus either slipped or put her head in the loop of a cord hanging under the console. Her 7-year-old brother found her and told their mother. Exodus was taken off the cord, and her mother called 911 while trying to revive her.
Responding officers and firefighters performed CPR as they took the girl to the hospital. The young angel had been on life support and was pronounced dead just before noon. After investigation it was shown that this was an "tragic accident".
“There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Exodus,” the family said in a statement. “We ask you now to please respect our need at this very difficult time for privacy to grieve and try to help each other heal.”Let me be the first to say that this is a tragic lost. And lets keep this family in prayer. I'm sure its hard losing not only someone close, but your own seed.

“I was being paid to host a party and when I showed up, the money I was promised for that simple task was short,” he wrote. “The promoters were asking me to ‘just do one or two songs’ and leave but I am an artist and I take pride in the show I’ve put together. I refuse to step onstage and allow people to believe that I am okay with them paying $40 dollars to see me rap over two records that my DJ plays.”
“I apologize to anybody in L.A. that was deceived and I promise that when I return I will drain my body of all its energy when I hit that fuckin’ stage and give you all the best performance I can,” -Drake on not performing at Element in Cali
When I hear of stories dealing with an artist not performing, due to the amount of money being offered, I usually attack the artist. But in this case, after hearing the situation according to Drizzy, I don't blame him--you have to know your worth. $40??? C'mon that's some bullsh*%. He has the heaviest buzz in the industry right now, and you expect to paid him 2 dubs? F' outta here!

Ok, I'm trying to get focused from a long weekend of partying on Miami beach & what better to kick start my week, than with a video of Charles Hamilton getting chin-checked by a female. Charles Hamilton decided to make a not-so-clever move by putting their sexual relations on front street in a freestyle battle. The battle didn't last very long, before the chick decked him in the mouth mid-sentence.
The chin-checker (who happens to be Kendu’s daughter--Mary J’s husband) took to her blog to explain the ordeal:
We seriously have a sick, dysfunctional, high school relationship. But… It is what it is. Like I said earlier: I DID NOT MEAN TO DECK HIM. I was holding it back but the more I thought about what he said the more I wanted to hit him. Sorry Grandma. I felt justified, but the more I think about it now, it is an unfair situation for him: I’m a female so he can’t hit me back with out a bunch of ppl talkn crap, and he still gets talked about if he doesn’t hit me. We ALL know that if a woman feels she’s man enough to hit a man, she’s probably man enough to take a punch. I’m not sayin thats right either
Matter of fact, let’s say this:
Even tho it was a “rap battle” and that’s the only reason he was going so hard…I would do it again in a heart beat. Somebody’s gotta shut the kid up sometime!!! But I got love for him tho.
I don't condone violence, but you gotta admit this is some funny ish....

On Friday, Ashanti stopped by The TODAY Show to promote the Broadway musical The Wiz, where she makes her theatrical debut as Dorothy.
This is typical, things like this usually happen during Bey season...I'm just sayin!
Anyway, the musical will run June 12 through July 5 at New York City Center.
P.M.T., the most sought out person on my contact list, has finally come out of hiding. Me and the homie linked up & kicked it last night on South Beach, after he went missing for countless months. After catching up, I learned that not only has he been overseeing the direction for his career, but he's also been on the grind in & out of the studio, putting beginning touches on his debut album. You probably remember P.M.T. from this post, as we featured him in our "Crank it or Yank it" segment, well the homie is back on KidduNot and we have video for your viewing pleasure.
IT SEEMS LIKE EVER SINCE DANITY KANE SPLIT , THESE GIRL GROUPS ARE JUST POURING OUT.
MY MONEY IS ON "RICHGIRL". THEY JUST MIGHT BE THE NEW "IT" CHICS!!
CHECK OUT THEIR FIRST VIDEO "HE AINT WIT ME NOW THO".
Tryin to stay relevent, Trina graces the cover of Bleu mag Spring issue to discuss her raunchy image, being in love with Denver Nuggets basketball star Kenyon Martin, and the direction of this new upcoming album.
After seeing this photo spread from Bleu mag, seems like Trina has been hit with the Keri Hilson swine flu with that hairdo of hers.
Apparently, after seeing this billboard (below) last night, she has decided to name her album "Amazing", and is preparing to release her new album in the 3rd quarter.

I figured, since Jay-Z severing all ties from Def Jam, we'd take you back down memory lane where it all started... for Jay-Z's career that is. Our Flashback Friday joint comes from the year 1996-and features a, then, young Jay-Z who would eventually be crowed a 'mogul' in this thing called Hip Hop.
Now that Hov is an independent artist, there is no word yet on when we can expect to see the highly anticipated release of his Blueprint 3.

Okay, her videos are starting to look the same to me now...That's one thing I miss about Missy, if not anything else, she always had innovative videos that always seem to catch your attention. Everything now-a-days is so lack luster!
Neo-soul vet- Maxwell just revealed the cover to his long-awaited new album, BLACKsummers’night, via his official website. BLACKsummer’snight, in stores on July 7th, features the single “Pretty Wings.”
I'm overly hype for this project...
Clip: Gina and Pam put their best feet forward to be accepted into an exclusive women's club, but their plans of impressing the women are jeopardized when Sheneneh and Laquita show up and turn their dreams into a nightmare.
Over the pass few years I settled with shows like Friends, Will & Grace, and Girlfriends--which I ultimately fell in love with in the end. But from all those shows, I have yet to find a character quite like Sheneneh Jenkins. The stereotypical mouthy "ghetto girl" , played by Martin, will forever reign in my mind as the "la-a-a-dy" she proclaimed to be.
With shows like The Game recently being cancelled...& a shortage on good black sitcoms to watch on television, we'll be posting a few of our favorite Martin clips until we feel completely comfortable enough to watch a black sitcom that holds us to our seats.
Neffe and her best friend, Atlanta hairstylist- Dariel, fly out to Baltimore and clear up a few rumors, all while demanding $60 from a gas guzzler. In the video, Neffe admits that she is pregnant by Sollow. Though she won't disclose the baby's name yet, she has confirmed that its a baby girl. She also touched on the "Frankie & Neffe" show coming in June, despite this KC's interview with S2S's Jamie Foster Brown.

MC recently used the social networking tool, Twitter, to unveil the title of her new album.
What can't you do with Twitter? Do people even check their Myspace pages anymore??....I don't think so, that's so late!

"Dash Miami launch party was a huge success! I LOVE YOU MIAMI! Going to bed now while they all party away at LIV!" - Kim Kardashian via twitter
A success indeed! Just one day after we learned the Kardashians' new Dash boutique had been defaced, Kim K., along with her two sisters Khloe and Kourtney, were all smiles Wednesday night. The girls threw a launch party for their new South Florida boutique at The Clevelander on Miami Beach--and I was there to party with them. It was an awesome turn out & these girls are not Hollywood, contrary to popular belief, they are down to earth-- I F***'s with these chicks! Scott Storch was also on hand to showed his support.
But enough of my booty chatter....
