Idris Elba SLAMS Tyler Perry!?

Idris Elba has been fastly becoming that leading male actor in Black Hollywood as of late.  Elba recently made the news for some comments he made about Tyler Perry!  After the BET Awards 11, Cheri Saunders of Black Press radio asked Elba to chime in on the recent Spike Lee v Tyler Perry feud.  Well, apparently Elba must have been feeling 'some sort of way' and had this colorful statement :

“Can I be candid? I don’t like all of Tyler Perry’s films. Yes, I did work with Tyler for ‘Daddy’s Little Girls’ because it portrayed a positive image of a black father. I am happy for Tyler’s success…we need Tyler Perry…by going to support his movies, we need to show economic strength. But we are also responsible for elevating film. I’m not with buffoonish characters like Madea or Big Momma.”

 Wow!  Seems like Elba had some things on his chest he needed to release?  Well, in essence, he is pretty much siding with Spike Lee, wouldn't you say?

Well, I guess he needs not even THINK about auditioning for "Tyler Perry's  Madea's Big Happy Day at the bank as she deposits all the money she's made from all her movies, plays, and dvds" Movie. LOL.

Amber's 'ROSE'. -- Did Amber leak her own pics????

Another day another set of nude pics hit the net.  Well the net is all abuzz over socialite, model, Amber Rose's nude pics!  For those that have been living under a rock and have yet to see them has all the explicit nudes.  And for those that happen to visit my spot here, we have a few pictures as well.



Well, we NOW see why all the rappers are after Amber's 'ROSE'! LOL.

Amber  addresses the leaked pics issue. Here is what she had to say:
I was gonna wait until my radio show to address this but I want to say this now. I trusted someone that worked 4 me & allowed them to use my laptop a million times, I caught this person sending my pics to themselves and I fired this person immediately Wiz & I & both of our families have known about this for 2 months now. We tried to prepare ourselves for this day. Those pictures r 2 1/2 years old just sitting in my computer. I’m really hurt & embarrassed because I have so many young girls that look up to me. I would never put those pics out of myself.

Well, any publicity is good publicity, right?  Hmmm, we'll see how this plays out.....

The Wonderful World of MISSY!

Hip-Hop pioneer, trendsetter, and mega-producer Missy Elliot has been in the news a lot lately, and its not for her music.
People Magazine  revealed recently that Missy Elliott had been battling with Graves’ Disease, an autoimmune disease that leads to overactivity of the thyroid.  Rumors began swirling around that the innovative artist was ill and that the disease has strickened her and her fans and people that were not 'in the know' began to worry about the star.  'Is she okay?', 'Will this disease stop the music?', 'Where is Missy?'  The artists addressed the rumors:

“I was diagnosed with Graves’ Disease about three years ago, but it really hasn’t slowed me down at all. I rocked my performance on VH1 Hip Hop Honors tribute to Timbaland last year. I’ve written and produced a bunch of Grammy-nominated, #1 hits for artists like Keyshia Cole, Monica, and Jazmine Sullivan. I toured the U.K., Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. And on top of all that, I’m working on my new album. I feel great. Under my doctor’s supervision, I’ve been off medication for about a year and I’m completely managing the condition through diet and exercise.”

So Missy is still in the game and knowing her, she is preparing to change it in a BIG WAY as only Missy can!  We look forward to new material from SUPA DUPA FLY Missy 'Misdemeanor' Elliot.  Until she graces us with the new project, let's revisit some of her BEST, cutting edge visuals!

'She's a BITCH'

'Get Ur Freak On'

'Better without you'

Food Stamps for Fast Food!? Now say it four x fast!

What are your thoughts on being able to use Food Stamps to purchase fast foods?  Think of the inherent problems this will compound.  America's poor, who are more likely to be plagued with poor nutrition and obesity issues than higher income groups, statistics show, are also more likely to get their meals from fast food restaurants.  It's a vicious cycle: Children who are raised in households in which they receive low-quality food are more likely to be poor themselves, in addition to suffering from diet-related diseases and struggling in school.

There's even evidence that high-calorie, low-nutrient-value diets (think sodas, french fries and low-quality proteins like hamburgers and chicken nuggets) contribute to aggressive risk-taking behavior.

Low income leads to unstable homes, unfortunate health outcomes and poor nutrition; unstable homes, unfortunate health outcomes and poor nutrition lead to lower incomes. And while we're at it, the circumstances of low income and poor nutrition are related to high debt (from health care bills) and poor success in school and criminal convictions.  And what portion of the population is more likely to be effected--African-Americans and Hispanics.

While most states allow food stamps to be used for soda, candy, ice cream and Doritos but not for hot prepared food meant to be eaten at the establishment where it's sold, a few states allow SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) recipients to use their benefits for fast food. Arizona, parts of California and Michigan already let food stamp users buy ready-made food at fast food restaurants, including Subway, KFC, Jack in the Box, Burger King, Pizza Hut and El Pollo Loco.

The idea here is that many homeless SNAP recipients, as well as those with unstable living conditions don't have a place to prepare food. And, the theory goes, it's better to let  this portion of our population to  buy fried chicken and burger as opposed to candy bars and cold burritos from a convenience store.

What do you think?  Should more states allow the use of Food Stamps to purchase Fast Foods?

Yum! Brands, owner of Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and KFC, thinks it's a great idea, however, and is lobbying the state of Kentucky to join its fellow fast-food-accepting states and allow the use of SNAP benefits in its restaurants.


PRINCE performing at Canal Plus in France last night!

Prince is still making the rounds performing and doing what Prince does--JAM OUT for his fans.  Last week it was revealed that Prince had rehearsed 300 songs with his band for his European tour which will feature (at least) three hours of music a night. Last night, he played 30 minutes worth of those songs live on French TV station Canal Plus during a show called Le Grand Journal.  Die hard Prince fans like my big brother would sit through the 3-hour set and still not get enough of the 'Purple Rocker'.  Here is a taste of what to expect during the European leg of the tour. from Tellme Mag on Vimeo.

Camaro, Charger, Challenger? What's your FAVE???

CARS, CARS, CARS.  In the last decade we've seen the reemergence of the big 'muscle' cars.  The Vintage style has been amped up with the sleek new aerodynamic shape and design for this decade.  The 3 that come to mind right out the gate are the Camaro, The Charger and The Challenger.

SO?  What's your fave?
I am partial to the Camaro because my Dad had one way back in the day....

Well, don't set your DVR just yet.  This is a skit that ran during Sunday night's BET Award's 11, and I thought it was hilarious.  The writers of this segment are to be complimented for the comedic genius that was touched on in these sketches.  BET might want to look into this concept.  Hmmm, something to think about.

'TWIT Pic'n (Yo Nose)': Chris Brown, Justin Bieber & Big Tigger #BETawards Edition

The Homies definitely held it down last night at the biggest awards show that EVERYBODY has been talking about since LAST NIGHT!!! THE BET AWARDS 11 was filled with OMG moment after moment, but before the hoopla began, check out the homies Chris Brown, Big Tigger and Justin Bieber chillin' by their trailers before the red carpet was underway!

Twit Pic this ONE!!!!!!!!!

WTF Moment: Lil' Wayne & DJ Khaled #betawards edition

 Last night's BET AWARDS was filled with many WTF moments, but this one stood out to me.  CAN SOMEONE PLEASE CAPTION THIS FOR ME?

I was like, wow, MONSTERS! The song and performance was on point!  One of my favorite songs of the summer so far.  But this image just scares me just a bit.  It looks like a BIG OWL trying to feed a little hatchling fresh out the egg some food it had regurgitated in it's mouth for its young!  That was some vivid imagery i just came up with right!?  Maybe it's too much drugs on my part.  And when I say drugs, I mean pharmaceutical, OTC drugs, not the other stuff.  I am sure you guys know how annoying it is to have a cold in the summertime.  It's the worse!!!!!  So you take any and everything you have left from the winter to get over it.  So now I am 'high' so to speak, so whatever else comes out of my head, I am going to simply blame it on the Dayquil. 

Yeah, back to the pic. WTF is going on here?  Readers, let me know... LOL I am going to put my head down on a cold pack of chicken breasts.  Good night/afternoon.

BET Awards 11---'The most talked about PERFORMANCE-Kelly Rowland'

Out the 'shadows' emerged a STAR!-Kelly Rowland

By far the must see performance of the year.  FOR YEARS, I had been telling people that there is another stand-out performer in Destiny's Child.  DC does not end and begin with 'B'.  Beyonce fans please do not bombard me with email and comments, because this is not in no form a dis to your leader.  Beyonce is a tremendous talent, a remarkable person and  a true business woman.  But so is Kelly.  Now, it seems we are seeing the real Kelly Ro that had been somewhat stifled under the mega-watt spotlight that was directed at Bey.  Last night at the BET Awards 11, Kelly stepped into her own spotlight--a spotlight that she is well deserving of.  A spotlight that has eluded her solo career to date.  But not anymore.  The performer from last night's fete seemed to transform before our eyes into a true bonafide solo act to be reckoned with.

 The vocals were on point, the choreography was precision.  Kelly is poised to soar!  Let's take a look in case you missed it.

Kelly Rowland-Just stunning!

Kevin Hart- The host with the most! Pants a bit tight in the thigh area for my liking, but he swagged it up well during the show.

Nick Cannon- Nice, crisp look.  I could rock this---MINUS the white band shoes.

Nelly- Pretty Dope. I think Nelly stole my vest!

Game-Simple-crisp.  Good look with the LV belt.  I'd rock this look!

Estelle- Love the new single, but you BROKE my heart with this get-up.  I can't rock with you on this one.  Still will iTune your song though.

Drake-  Nice swag with this look. I was rocking with it...until the shoes.  Change them, and you are still in the game Drizzy!

Diddy-Dirty Money- Hmm?  *Turning page sideways, then upside down. Then putting silly putty on it, then looking at it again.  Umm, white is nice in the summer.  And that's all I am going to say about that.
Diddy is looking at her like he thinking "I wish you would say something crazy?"

Keri Hilson- Beautiful girl, but I have seen her look 100x better.  She looks like she dressed to go get her nails done, get some Ajax, slim jims, and a plunger from The Dollar Tree, then put some gas in the jeep, then go back to the house and REALLY get GLAMMED.  A bit of a downer for me.  Face still on point.

Traci-Ellis Ross-Wow, there are some good genes flowing in the Ross family.  Traci looks really good.  Nice shoe game-can't go wrong with red.  The body is bananas.  Who knew 'Joan' was holding like this?

Tika Sumpter- Wow, her black is beautiful.  That's what the BET slogan says.-LOL- Legs, body, face on deck! A+

Rick Ross- BOSS!  That's all needs to be said!

Willow & Jaden Smith- Great to see kids doing positive things in life. Yes I get it.  But I am tired of these two. LOL. I am Glad your parents let you express yourselves and wear whatever the HELL you want to. WE GET IT! Now go sit down.  You two look like you represent the lollipop guild.  Yeah I said it.  But keep doing your thing! You got more money than me...for now... *Sinister GRIN*

Chris Brown- The man of the hour, sweeping the BET Awards last night.  The thing around the neck--I don't get it- but hey do you.  Congrats on all your trophies.  Now just be good for the next 90 days.

Patti Labelle- Timeless beauty. Enough said.
