My Bum Is On Your Face!

If any saw tonight's Movie Awards you'r probably wondering was Bruno's (Sasha Baron Cohen) stunt featuring Eminem fake or real. I for one think it was a skit but the audience didnt know. Eminem DID NOT think it was funny. I didn't think it was funny either, I'm all about personal space and that just wasn't right. Who knows with MTV. If you missed it, check out the vid below.

And The Claws Come Out!


Now I think I can say Danity Kane is more than damaged. Dawn Richards must have really been betrayed she recently did a radio interview and bashed Aubrey.

"Honestly, real talk, she cool, I don't like it when people go in like that and try to pit us against each other" said Richards "Me and her [Aubrey] used to be mad cool, real talk, but this is the reality, I think we're all different personalities and you have to be a certain type of person to wanna deal with that, because if you like drama then that's your person you hang with, but I don't like drama so we didn't click long enough to hang."

Dawn then continued to say how Aubrey messed up everyones money.
"My thing is I like to be part of a business, if you're a part of a brand [then] I like to keep the brand good, ya feel me? I felt like I had other mouths to feed so I would never mess up Shannon's mouth, Aubrey's mouth, D Wood's mouth, and when you start messin' up my money and my home then I have a problem, that was my issue with Aubrey."
Aubrey responded to Dawn's rant:
"It had nothing to do with her personality, who she is, she's a talented girl, but when you're missin' shows and fans are paying for you and you're the star of the group, I knew it and I was cool with it I was riding the ticket you know, but when you're the star and you don't show up and people know you're not comin', you're messin' up the money you know, that's a problem."
And Aubrey's response:
I missed a total of 3 shows during the time I performed on BWAY! Never for my entire career with DK did I miss even a meet and greet. The days I missed were because I was sick, and so all of you understand what that means when you are in a contract with Six Flags, and actual doctor has to see you, determine you are unhealthy for travel, and then fax over all the details in order for the remaining girls to be able to even get paid. For the record, they got paid for ALL 3 shows! I was burning the candle at both ends in rehearsal and stage performances for DK and BWAY. Diddy gave me his blessing for this project, as he knew the state of DK at the time, and not every member wanted to be there. -Aubrey

Idol Judge Outs Adam Lambert?


American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi thought she should mention her thoughts on Adam Lambert's sexuality while on The View.

"I don't think that Adam was ever in the closet," she said of 27-year-old Idol alum, "I think he was always openly out."

Barbara Walters asked her if Adam's shocking loss could have been connected to his perceived sexuality, Kara said, "I hope not. Because we should be judging on talent and viability in the music industry, and they both had that."

I don't think anyone should mention if he's in the closet or not. It's no ones business.

Quincy Jones Tells Amy No, No, No


Amy Winehouse was to work in the studio with Mark Ronson to cover Lesley Core's 1964 hit, "You Don't Own Me." The song was to be featured on  Quincy Jones' tribute compilation. After waiting a whole year to hear a sample of the track and getting nothing, Quincy canceled on Winehouse.

A source told London's The Daily Mirror, "The frustrating thing is what there is of the track sounds really good, but it looks like no one will ever get to hear it."

"Mark tried everything to get her back in the studio to finish it, but he's given up and everyone else is starting to too. Quincy Jones is one of the most respected men in the music industry, so it was a huge honor for Amy to be asked to record for him. To snub him is a big no-no."

There were reports that the mega producer wanted to book the "Rehab" singer for a performance with Michael Jackson. I guess that isn't happening either. It seem Amy isn't consistent with her work. The singer has been residing in St. Lucia and supposedly working on her much anticipated album.

New Video: Kanye West Ft. Rihanna - Paranoid

New Music: Pat McGee


Pat McGee has a beautiful and powerful song called "Come Back Home." There aren't many words to describe this song, but Pat said,
"Come Back Home" was written in the wake of me losing my longtime drummer and former Army soldier John C. Williams. But the song started off as a reflection of how a military couple deals with separation. After the release of "Come Back Home", John's little brother was killed by an IED in Iraq. His name was Blake Williams. His platoon used this track as the audio to a memorial slide show presentation they did in March of 2008. It was for all the courageous men and women they had lost in the month of March. I am humbled by their service to our great country and I hope this song brings them some peace. My father served in Vietnam and I truly appreciate their dedication and bravery."




Pat's latest release is "These Days (The Virginia Sessions)" and is available on iTunes.

Jessie James Interviewed By BlogCritics.com


Jessie James is all over the internet and gets rave reviews. Jessie just finished an interview with BlogCritics.com Here are some highlights from the interview.

Several sources note that you've been singing since the age of two and that you won your first talent contest at the age of nine. Do you recall the name of your victory song?
Yeah. It's called "I Want to be a Cowboy Sweetheart" and I had to yodel in the song! [laughing] It was great.

In the early years, what motivated you to pursue your musical passions? Was there a family influence or was this all personally driven?
I asked my mom about it. I had heard about the talent show. It was in Baker, Louisiana and they have one every year. I had heard about it through my grandmother. It was in the paper, I guess, and they were just talking about it happening again. I was like, "I really want to be in this contest." So my mom put me in the show. The good thing about my mom is that she was never that stage mother. It was always my decision. She never forced me to do anything that I didn't want to do. "If you want to do it, you can do it. If not, we won't do it." That was a good thing about her. I really wanted to do this talent show and it's a good thing that I did. I love being onstage.

The bulk of the songwriting on your debut album was handled by you. Of all the songs, which do you consider to be the most personal?
"Guilty" is probably the most intimate and personal to me because it's about a guy being out on tour and me, assuming—because he's a rock star—that he's cheating on me. So I'm cheating on him while I'm back at home. It's just the dilemma of the situation and feeling everything, every emotion just not feeling guilty because of my anger towards him, assuming that that's what he's doing. It's a true story and it's probably the most personal song out there, like my diary for the world to see. I cheated on somebody and it's not very nice but, you know, women do it, too.

To read more of the interview go to BlogCritics.com

Jessie's self-titled debut album is set for release July 14.

Britney Attends Cousin's Wedding In Hometown


Britney Spears left the Bahamas to fly to Louisiana. Britney was a "honorary" bridesmaid at the wedding of her cousin, Laura Lynne Covington (pictured with Brit).

"When her brother walked her down the aisle, she looked stunningly calm and beautiful," says one wedding guest. "She was very pretty, low-key. She was not the center of everything, just pretty and calm and collected.”

The wedding took place at the First United Methodist Church. Jamie Lynn, who was also a bridesmaid, brought her daughter, Maddie, along. A guest said Jamie Lynn and Brit "sat at a table off to the side and visited with local people she knew," says the guest.

"There was no fanfare," noted the guest. "With all the star power Britney and her family command, it was still the bride's day."

Are Chris Brown & Carrie Underwood Recording Together


Chris Brown's singing career may seem down in the dumps after the alleged assault, but Breezy is back in the studio.
The newest rumor to hit the net is Chris is going country!

E! News reports that the singer is considering a song titled "Trapped in a Dream" for his next album.

"Maybe we'll see an appearance from Carrie Underwood or someone like that," said Robert Allen, a writer and producer who is currently working with the singer. "It's that kind of song." Allen also said the song is "just feeling like you don't want that dream to go away. Everybody has a dream and you're in it, but you wake up and you're like, 'Oh, my God.' You feel like you're still in that dream."

Green Day Beat The Censors While Performing Live

Green Day made headlines this week by bashing Wal-Mart for not selling their new album, '21st Century Breakdown', after the band refused to edit it to meet the store's family friendly standards. Now, they're making headlines after ABC failed to bleep out the curse words in their performance. Someone is getting fired!

While the band performed "Longview", ABC didn't work fast enough to stop the 'S' word and 'F' word from getting past the censors.

Just a month ago, Green Day frontman Billie Joe complained that 'American Idol' producers forced them to play their cover of John Lennon's 'Working Class Hero' to an empty room for fear that they might blurt a curse word on live TV.

Clay Aiken Apologizes After Rant


Clay Aiken's ears didnt really bleed when he heard Idol runner-up Adam Lambert sing "Ring of Fire." An Idol runner up himself, Aiken has said he is sorry for his "choice of words".

The singer wrote on his blog that "I obviously meant it as a colorful statement to imply that I did not enjoy what I heard." He also said he didn't mean to "slam on Adam as a person."

He had blasted Lambert's take on the classic Johnny Cash tune as "contrived," "awful" and "slightly frightening." Aiken says he hopes Lambert can forgive him — but adds Lambert probably doesn't care about what he said.

Is Clay really sorry? I felt he wasn't then but maybe is now. I don't like Clay anyway.

Clay Aiken Rants About Idol And The Runner Up


Clay Aiken thought he needed to rant about American Idol runner up Adam Lambert and American Idol itself. There was talk about Clay collaborating with Adam on a track, but I don't think that will be happening any time soon.  A fan asked Clay what does he think about the Idol finale. Clay responded with the longest answer EVER.

"Now that it's all over, and for the record.... I couldn't be happier about the way AI ended this year. I only turn the show on once a season, and only to see what the set looks like each year. This year, I happened to turn it during the minute that Adam Lambert was singing 'Ring of Fire' and, at that moment, thought my ears would bleed. Contrived, awful, and slightly frightening! I wasn't really a fan and found myself surprised whenever folks told me that they liked him. Granted, I never saw another performance (and many folks who I trust said that he was great) but I can't imagine I would have enjoyed it. Just not my cup of tea at all. To each his own. I never saw Kris sing on the show, but whether he was good or not is really relative. It's usually a matter of taste, right? But Idol is not always a matter of musical taste only. It's about the person you like. From what little I saw, Kris seemed likable. (That's not to say that Adam isn't just as likable as anyone.. maybe more so... I don't know) When Ruben and I were standing next to each other every night (many years ago) you had two equally talented, equally unlikely, equally unpolished contestants.... so it really was a matter of taste as to who was voted for. While some may argue that one of us was hyped more than the other, I don't feel that was the case. However, this year, there was an obvious bias. Not even having watched the show, I can tell you that I was WELL aware of the bias from the judges as to who should win. In my opinion, that is awfully unattractive. I don't think I am alone."

If you think that was the final answer. Clay continued on even more.

"In my opinion, it all often comes down to that last night of voting. Until the finale, folks are voting for the contestant that they want to see continue. But, I believe that on that last night, the dynamic changes. No longer forced to choose one person that they want to see win, the audience can effectively vote AGAINST the person that they don't want to see win. In the case of season two this might have happened. There may have been some folks who voted for myself or Ruben because they didn't like the other of us. I was the nerdy little girly boy who some didn't want to see win, so they may have voted for Ruben. I don't know. .. But again, I feel that Ruben and I were fairly matched. We both had our detractors and negatives, but I feel we were both very worthy of being on that stage in that moment, and either of us would have been worthy of winning. The show was different then, and folks made it in seasons 1-3 because they were 'real' people who happened to sing/entertain well. But, somewhere along the way, AI stopped being about real people.

In a battle between David and Goliath, my money is on David!

I think many voters got sick of being 'told who to vote for'. I think many were turned off by the blatant favoritism shown towards one contestant. Therefore, on that last night, they used their votes against a contestant that they were tired of hearing about and for the contestant who had been written off. And, at the same time, I think they voted AGAINST an American Idol that has, for four years now, been more about the slick productions and polished contestants than it has been about finding the raw talent that it did in its first three seasons.


Those votes for Kris were also votes to return the show to its roots of finding 'real' contestants with undiscovered talent and giving them the chance to grow and shine. They were votes that said 'we're tired of seeing contestants who already seem to know it all'.


Will American Idol choose to listen to the resounding and clarion call that those voters gave them?.... 'Enough with the pretention. More Rubens, more Clays, more Fantasias and Tamyras and Kellys please.' My faith has always been in the voters. I think they have gotten it right every year (mine included). It's now up to American Idol to decide if it will finally REALLY listen to the folks that keep it on the air."

If you didn't read the whole thing and just skipped to the end, I don't blame you. I can't understand how he would take a simple answer and turn it into a rant. Is Clay Aiken feeling a little bitter about something? Leave your thoughts on Clay and his whole rant.

T.I. Doesn't Want To Go To Jail Yet


T.I. is scheduled to head to prison on Tuesday, but he asking for a two week delay. Yes, a two week delay. The rapper has asked to delay the date so he can be reassigned to a prison closer to Atlanta.

T.I is suppose to be heading to Arkansas on May 26. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, T.I. has asked for a two-week delay to resolve the issue with the Bureau of Prisons.

T.I.'s lawyers said he should be allowed to serve his time in a prison camp instead of a detention facility in Arkansas. T.I. was assigned to the Forrest City prison because he had a prior offense that was designated as a serious violent felony. The prior offense “amounted to little more than a ‘scuffle’ at a mall,” the motion said.

Do you think T.I. will have his way? Or should he just except what he was given?
