New Muziq: Sumthin's Gotta Give

Let the chuch say Amen! Big Boi is speakin some thangs in his new song feat. Mary J. Blige called Sumthin's Gotta Give. It is real talk and it is all stuff we know and we've heard before but Big Boi is right, like for real for real, something has to give. Big is talkin to Capital Hill on this joint. And unlike Ludacris who has a new song which was intended to help Barack but he says some raw and unnecessary shit about Hillary, Bush, and McCain, Big Boi just talkin bout the issues and reppin for Barack. Come November ya'll.....I love it!

Sorry D'Angelo

It seems me and many other turned on stans who started doin their kegels while fantasizing to D'Angelo's Untitled video are the reason why D'Angelo stopped making music, gained weight, and turned to drugs.

According to an interview in the August 2008 Spin Magazine with D'Angelo's former manager Dominique Trenier, that video ruined it all.

Do you remember? I mean, how can you not. Damn...

Well it wasn't even D'Angelo's idea to get nekkid. He was kind of "pushed" into the concept of letting it all hang out. It turned out to be a blessing and a curse.

“We couldn’t get through one song before women would start to scream for him to take off something” says Hargrove. “It wasn’t about the music. All they wanted was for him to take off his clothes.”

The cat calls had an undeniable effect on D’Angelo. “He’d get angry and started breaking sh*t,” Thompson remembers. “The audience thinking, “f*ck your art, I wanna see your ass!” made him angry”.

For D’Angelo, who, as Trenier puts it, “isn’t a sexy dude” but a “real musician who wears glasses and plays video games,” the objectification appeared to do lasting damage. “I didn’t realize how vulnerable he was or how deep his issues ran.” Says Leeds. “He’s cursed now with fretting over how much of his fan base is because of how he looked as opposed to his music. It took away his confidence, because he’s not convinced why any given fan is supporting him.

“I feel really guilty, because that was never the intention” Trenier says. “Untitled wasn’t supposed to be his mission statement for Voodoo. I’m glad the video did what it did, but he and I were both disappointed because, to this day, in the general public’s memory, he’s the naked dude.”

And then he became this...

I feel bad...kind of. I mean, I definitely wanted to see him nekkid at all times BUT I actually think D'Angelo is beyond talented and more than just something to look at. I still listen to Brown Sugar. In his Brown Sugar days he was fully clothed always. I just saw those lips and heard him playin that piano, he was hittin thos Prince like notes, singing bout shit I wanted to hear about and he couldn't even look directly into the camera in his videos and I loved it. D'Angelo was that dude.

So D'Angelo if you just happen to Google yourself and find this, I want you to know this. You are incredibly talented and the game needs you. I also want you to know that if every female entertainer lost her mind because people always wanted her to get nekkid then they would all be in mental institutions or walkin around with Meth poxs. (What's Amy Wino's excuse?) Mkay boo? Luh u, bye.


Making The Band's Boom Boom Kat....She's Baaaaaack!

O.M.G. I am goin to have reality TV comin outta my ass! I can't even remember all the shit I have to watch that is premiering in the next few days, not to mention I am actually one of the few people who watch the Olympics - even shit like ping pong - and REAL TV starts back up in September. Overload! OK but back to the topic at hand. Making the Band 4 Season 3 is premiering on August 13th and Boom Boom Kat aka Laurie Ann is back! Ya'll memba the drama and the fight with BBK and you think she's back cuz she realized she needed Diddy? Clearly Diddy needs her. I think when she thought her music career was gonna blow and it didn't it was time for her to go back to what she does best...and that's Boom Boom Kat!!

I do have to say, that based on this trailer the only reason I'm watchin is to see how Boom Boom Kat comes back, how Danity Kane and Day 26 deal with the fact that nobody wanted to see them in concert and why they had to cancel all those shows, why Donnie's album still ain't come out yet and what's good with BBK. Hmmmm, I guess those are a lot reasons to watch. But I will say that the I Want To Work For Diddy trailer looks way more interesting.

Da Hell?

Do we all remember Gary Dourdan? Memba he was Shazza on A Different World and he was all islandy and hot and sexy? And I don't know if ya'll watch CSI but I do, of course, and I love when they do close ups when he's just found a clue in the lab and then his jaw gets all tight and his beautiful eyes get all sexy....mmmmmmm, Gary. OK and I'm back. Anyway, just in general Gary is a hot mofo. So please tell me why....

This is before:

And this is after. What da fuck Gary?

Speedos don't even fit and what is really goin on wit dat hair? I understand not er'body looks hot to def after getting out of some water (I'm especially talkin to you Punk Berg) but something just ain't right here. I'm just gonna hope since you decided to possibly go to rehab and take some time for yourself that right now you are fine with letting yourself go just a lil bit and then you'll get it together and return to the hot Gary that you most certainly are, er, were. Damn.

So You Think You Can Dance? They Can. For Real, For Real!

Adam's back! My favorite judge! And speakin of judges, didn't Mary wear that damn bedazzled dress already? No seriously, isn't that like the same dress she wore like 4 weeks ago? Ugh. hour show, yes! Down to the final six which means we are this close to the end, yes! Wait, what will I do when SYTYCD is over? I'll think about that later. Here we go!

Courtney and Mark

First Dance: Viennese Waltz. This was the first waltz all season that I truly thoroughly enjoyed...for real, for real. Mark and Courtney make a gorgeous couple which I think could be why I really enjoyed it. They looked like they were dancing their first dance at their wedding. It was lovely.

Second Dance: Gotta love a sexy jazz routine. These two just look amazing together. That was hot. It was freaky and erotic and they are really off the chain together. And it was right up Mark's alley. He does weirdo odd ball dance very well. Loved it. Great choreography.

Katee and Joshua

First Dance: This is me SQUEALING! Katee and Josh are back together again!! OK but seriously, their Tyce choreographed routine was simply fantastic. Simply amazing. Can you say run and catch a bitch in a split?! They were both ridiculously on point, you can tell they love dancing together, and the talent is just out of control. Not to mention, they danced to Celine Dion. Can't nobody sing my Celine and if you dance to Celine you better kill it and they did just that. I can drop the mic right bout now. I'm done. (Ok not really, but seriously, tell me these two aren't gonna be the last two standing.)

Second Dance: Holy shizz! I just realized that I wasn't breathing that whole time. Joshua looks like a fuckin Gladiator!! He said he was gonna get nekkid on the show like Will and Twitch and he did!! OMG that Pasa Doble was out of fuckin control. I have no more words. Fuckin brilliant. It's over. I'm done. I'm droppin the mic...for real.

Chelsie & Twitch

First Dance: These two are an interesting pair. They get a Mambo. Talk about A for effort. OK, Chelsie is just amazing when it comes to these ballroom dances. She ripped it. Twitch is obviously not a ballroom dancer of any kind and it was clear that he wasn't as great as Chelsie however he seemed to hit all his marks and he was there for Chelsie. So overall it was a great was just all about Chelsie.

Second Dance: I was happy that Twitch got hip-hop! Chelsie got her thing and Twitch got his. Here's the thing tho, I loved the concept of the choreography with the fighting for the conductor stick to the orchestra music but, I wasn't extra pumped about this. I'm not sure why. I mean it was great but I wasn't on my feet. It was cute.


Chelsie: I couldn't see past that fugly ass dress she was wearin with the green shimmys shimmy-in thru her solo.

Twitch: How can you not love him? Anybody who can incorporate corny fun into their routine gets my vote. But um, did Cat really put those teeth in her mouth after he did? Yeah, Ew.

Katee: It is official. Katee should not make up her own routines. I don't want to see her do another hand around the head hair whip move. She does the same solo every week. It seems as tho she is only at her best when dancing other people's moves. I mean and that's fine. Just cuz you are a ree-diculously amazin dancer don't mean you know how to make up your own 30 sec. routine. It's fine.

Joshua: He is just all over the place and I like it! The booty pop and the toe does he do all that with that booty!!!

Courtney: She is absolutely the best with her solos. She somehow manages to make her solos look a lil different week after week. Very nice.

Mark: I wanted him to take the shirt off completely! He's like a hot rooster.

Everybody is just so good. I won't make any predictions. I'm lying....mkay, well I'm just gonna say that Mark is the luckiest mofo ever cuz he got a second chance, he got Courtney as his partner and he stepped his game up ridiculously - either that or he proved that being Comfort's partner just ruins everything. All I am predicting is that Katee and Joshua are NOT goin home tomorrow.

P.S. O.M.G. Joshua's mother. WHY LORD?!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Clearly platts, perms, and poor dye jobs is a family affair. I CAN'T!!!!

F.U. To The Rescue!

Hey F.U.!

Just one question, what is "Audrina Eyes"? Keep doin what you do! In your words, me likey!



What's good Lu! Mkay, Audrina Eyes. Well first let me tell you that Audrina is one of the girls on the MTV show The Hills. Most people have eyes that are pretty much centered. You can make them go from side to side or roll them or whatever. Most people have a spirit behind their eyes and can show expression through their eyes. Audrina's eyes are permanently lookin up to the sky. She could be smiling but her eyes are still lookin at you like she's over it or she doesn't understand. So, when I say "Audrina Eyes" its just another way of sayin Womp Womp or I'm bored or no one gives a shit. Audrina gives crickets with her eyes everyday.

See...even her side eye is a dead eye. I recommend you catch just one episode of The Hills this season. It is way more serious in 'real life'. Especially when LC is telling her something that she clearly doesn't want to hear....the Audrina Eyes are out of control.

When Were You Born?

There was some kind of study that looked at how your birth order and the season in which you were born plays a role in determining the kind of person you are.

Only Child: Only children are the mega-movers of the world. They are task-oriented, tend to be extremely well organized, very conscientious and ultimately dependable.

First-Born: First-borns are natural leaders. They are presidents, astronauts and CEOs in overwhelming numbers. They have higher IQs and frequently live with a sense of entitlement and even superiority.

Middle Born: The middle-born tends to be a people-pleaser and usually hates confrontation. Their motto might be "peace at any price." They are usually very calm, will roll with the punches, are amiable, down-to-earth, and great listeners.

Youngest: The youngest child tends to be the world's cheerleaders. As kids they're punished less than their siblings. They have strong people skills and love to entertain and talk to others.

Fall/Winter Babies: Babies born in the fall and winter tend to be more active babies than spring babies and often live longer.

Summer Babies: Babies born in summer often grow up to be leaders and someone others look up to.

There may be some truth to some of this. For example I am the ultimate SUMMER BABY and I am a born leader. I don't know if people look up to me, prolly not, but if shits goin down, I'm there front and center and tryna run the show. Here is where things get a lil sketchy....mkay so technically, I'm the middle child but I am nobody's damn people pleaser and peace at any price my ass. I stay locked and loaded and ready for war and I've been that way since day one. Mama F.U. done had to knock my block off more than too many times cuz thanks to me, she didn't know what peace was. On the other hand, I was the youngest for 7 damn years until my mother's birth control clearly stopped working. I am most certainly a people person and love, love to entertain. And oddly enough, my youngest sibling is the complete opposite of a people person. (Luh you Weirdo!!)

So does this apply to you? Oh and if you were born in the Spring I guess they just couldn't figure you out cuz they just left spring babies out. But I know some Spring babies, let me see if I can figure it out.

Spring Babies: Tend to be really fake but usually nice to everybody and creative.

How is that Spring babies? Yes?


Maybe I Need LASIK Sooner Than Later...

I think I'm the only one who doesn't see why women find Nelly so attractive. I mean, I see the sculpted body and yes, kudos for that, but I'm clearly missing something. Like, I don't get it. Hmph....well if Nelly will make you get out there and buy your man some Sean John draws for Christmas, then well done Diddy. And for those of you who just love it, enjoy.

Fabulosity of the Day

Brandy looks fabulous! I love her hair and her easy breezy cute summer girl look. I am very much anticipating Brandy's new album and I am soooo rootin for her. I still listen to Afrodisiac (which people really slept on) but um, I could use some new Brandy in my life and by the looks of it, she's not playin. She's coming back looking good and doin what she does best. Loves it!


Are You Fuckin With This?

German Scientist Jan Vinzenz Krause of the Institute for Condom Consultancy has created a spray on condom. Here is how it works:

"The system works a bit like a car wash. The man put his penis in a chamber and presses a button to start the jets of liquid latex, sucked from a detachable cartridge. The rubber dries in seconds and is later rolled off and discarded like a conventional condom."

The aim is for the process to take just 10 seconds but at present the latex drying time is around 20 to 25 seconds. "We're working to shorten that time," said Krause.

What do we think about that? It takes a bit longer than the 5.5 seconds it takes to rip open a condom and slide that bad boy on. However, this clearly means more pleasure for both parties (I would think) and during the 30 - 35 second process of spray and dry, your lady, man, horse (you know whateva or whoevea you fuckin) can be stretchin and gettin into position. This would also mean that size would never be a problem - you know that "these condoms are too small" bullshit. It would also mean that you would never have to worry about those common mishaps such as, the condom ripped during mid-flip or searching for condoms that somehow get left up inside you and he has to do some kind of GYN exam to find that bitch.

On the other hand, you literally have to use a machine to spray the condom on and machines are good for a malfunction. While your man has his meat in the car wash and you gettin all ready for an ultimate wipe down - you know joggin in place, sprayin your smell goods, etc. - the next thing you know this shit done broke down, his joint is stuck, and things done got real ugly. Talk about a way to ruin the mood. And then there is the most important - effectiveness. What if some of that stuff rubs off or what if your stupid asses didn't wait long enough for it to dry and next thing you know La'Ra'Queesha is born.

While I'm not totally sold, I like the concept and I say Jan Vinzenz Krause is on to something indeed.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Um, What's Really Good Bravo?

So Housewives of Atlanta premiers on Bravo, tomorrow July 30 at midnight. Yup, they made sure to give the ethnic folks the 12:00 am PREMIERE time slot. Also real interesting, Bravo doesn't have shit about the premier of the show on their website. What is that really all about? I mean, when a show premiers isn't there usually all kinds of fanfair and annoucements and reminders? Not a stitch of promotion. I don't want to have to boycott Bravo. Too much of my TV crack is on Bravo - but I will should I need to and mindnight premieres and no publicity is something that will just about do it. Anyhoo, until I get the official nod that I need to be done with Bravo, I'll be catching a re-run at some point cuz I'm not staying up until midnight for no housewives. And truth be told, just looking at them doesn't get me all that excited...

In an Enertainment Tonight interview with the Housewives, they each are talkin and I don't really know what they're talkin about but um, there is one...don't know her name yet, but the one with the two-toned blond weave and her chi-chis fallin out her dress talkin about "we're funner"....yup, I've made her my favorite for now. To check out the interview Click: There may be a real reason Bravo is not fuckin wit these housewives....

Tune In Tonight: Kanye West Makes A Difference

Kanye West, the man who told the world that George Bush doesn't care about black people, the man who has made one of the best albums in the new millennium, the man who lives for fashion, and the man who may throw a temper tantrum from time to time, has joined forces with MTV to give back. “CHOOSE OR LOSE & KANYE WEST PRESENT: HOMECOMING” is the one hour special that takes us into the lives of three Iraq veterans that have recently returned home. Kanye West surprises these three vets not only by visiting them at their homes, listening to their stories, and thanking them for risking their lives (for no reason) BUT he, MTV and The Dr. Donda West Foundation also provides the unexpected by paying off debts, rent and tuitions. I love it.

And as many people may say, no, I don't think Kanye is doing this just to take attention away from his all-caps rants on his blog. I mean, he's Kanye. Do you think he really gives a shit? I highly doubt it.

Be sure to check it out!!!! Tonight, Monday, July 28th at 10pm on MTV.

Take a look at a teaser from tonight's show.

Shout out to one of my bestest friends, WGB, for putting this MTV special together and working her ass off to make this one of the best Choose or Loose MTV pieces ever! So proud of you...

Make Everyday The Best Day - Live Your Best Life

Randy Pausch died this morning. I hope you have heard of him, but for those who haven't, Randy Pausch is the man who was diagnosed with terminal cancer and gave a last lecture which became one of the most watched videos on You Tube and a best selling book.

You know its funny, people take things from other people and life experiences so differently...I had heard about Randy Pausch and even watched some of his last lecture. I loved his message but it wasn't until he was on Oprah (of course I get a light bulb moment while watching Oprah) and he and Dr. Oz were throwing around a football that was autographed by a bunch of his favorite NFLers. Dr. Oz said "this is a collector's item we can't throw this around" and Randy said "what am I saving it for?" And I tell you it was in that moment that I was like wow, why does it take knowing you are going to die to become so conscious? Shouldn't we all not be saving things? Shouldn't we all be doing everything and anything we want if it makes us happy and allows us to live our best life?! Such things as using your special China only for special occasions instead of eating on those beautiful plates everyday are the kinds of things we do everyday without even really thinking about it. What if that special occasion never comes?

I was wondering how good he and his family must have felt knowing that he left this life knowing that he fulfilled his purpose here. His children will know that their father made a huge impact on people all over the world simply by telling us all that life is precious and it isn't guaranteed and if you waste it by allowing yourself to be miserable, making others unhappy, and never telling those you love that you love them then you may as well be dead already. Randy says you have to choose to be a 'Tigger' or an 'Eeyore'. He basically means are you going to be thankful for everyday, every moment and happily go after everything you want and deserve in this life OR are you goin to mope around all day waiting for life to happen to you with a cloud over your head blaming everybody and everything for the rain instead of steppin out into the sun?

We all have our purpose in this life. We all go about doing things differently, have different perspectives on how to live life, and have various ways in going about doing whatever it is that we do. All I want to tell you is to just do it. Do you. Live your life. Make today your best day.

RIP Randy Pausch. Watch the Last Lecture.

When Daddy Leaves....

So, other than laughing at Foxy's XXL cover which looks like a 1989 Sears glamour shot, I didn't post anything about her actual interview where she talks about how she was Bonnie to Jay-Z's Clyde and when she needed him most - he just wasn't there. When she lost her hearing he didn't call her...which could be because he knew she wouldn't be able to hear him if he did call BUT she also said that when she was in jail, everybody came to see her except Jay. I didn't post this because, well right now I'm a bit over Foxy. That actually sucks for me to say because Foxy was actually my favorite female MC. When girls were reppin Lil Kim I was always like its all about Fox Boogie. However, while both Kim and Inga have turned into hot ass messes in their own ways, Foxy is a whole notha situation for me. She didn't have to do the jail thing and turn to beatin people up with blackberries or weave glue bottles and smackin up nail people. And she most certainly didn't have to put herself in situations where she was getting jumped by some pimp's hos. All of her energy should have gone into making dope music and hiring a personal make-up artist who would never ever allow her to wear that god awful cotton candy pink lipstick.

I also chose not to talk about this Foxy and Jay thing because I figured Foxy ran off at her mouth or did something and Jay was just over it. I felt like he prolly had just cause to stop fuckin with her. HOWEVER, now I'm starting to think it may be something more to this whole thing. After Foxy fell off and Jay moved on to bigger and better, I think that whole period of time for Foxy was really hard for her. She was obviously acting out like an abandonded child would and her split with Jay was clearly more traumatizing than we all could have ever imagined.

This revelation has come because another one of Jay's protege's has come out and said she too was abandonded by Jay. Teairra Mari says that she was just dropped and never heard from Jay ever again. In an interview with, Teairra Mari talks about how it all went to down.

AHHA: You were one of Jay-Z’s premiere artists when he took over Def Jam as president, unveiling the new Roc line-up. What happened to your deal and relationship with Roca-A-Fella/Def Jam?

Teairra Mari: I'm going to be totally honest; I don't know what happened. I just got a call out of the blue because I had gotten cut my second advance and everything to record my second album. I got a call one day. They were just like, “Yeah we're going to be letting you go. You’re young and we believe you will be able to have a prosperous career without us,” just kind of like throwing me out in the cold really. That’s how I kind of look at it, because we were all supposed to be like a close family.

I called Jay-Z my father; he was like a second father to me. Tracy Waples, I called her a second mother. So to just be thrown out – and I didn't get a call from Tracy or Jay – it was a bit heartbreaking. You know we live and we learn, but just me being that young and inexperienced I didn't know. So I took it pretty hard.

AHHA: What was going through your mind at the time and after the call?

Teairra Mari: You don't understand…my heart just dropped to the floor, because I wasn't expecting it. It came from nowhere. I'm thinking we are about to be on the road for the second album because I had already gotten my advance. It was really heartbreaking. I kept it a secret for like two or three months from everybody – my mom, my close friends – I couldn't tell anybody. I had to deal with it myself before I let it out to anybody else.

Let me tell you…that tore me down. I had 19 years of living with myself, and that tore down every piece of confidence I had. I had to rebuild from scratch. I wasn't expecting that, so when it came it was just like, damn homey. It’s cool now, I can laugh at it now. It’s pretty funny, but at the time it was pretty heart breaking; it was a lot to deal with.
AHHA: Is there still a relationship at all with Jay-Z?

Teairra Mari: There is no relationship there at all. I haven't heard from him since that time. I think I sent him a happy birthday message because his birthday is two days after mine, like two years ago and since then it's been nothing. And I don't want it to be – Actually, it's fine because I was a young girl. If you could come into a young girl’s life and then just throw her on the curb, you put this father presence on and then be like, “I’m done with it.” I don’t want a relationship like that.

This is in any situation when you have success then everybody is on it, everybody is on board, everybody is rolling with it. But when you have something that fails to succeed, then everybody is off it; everybody has something to say about it. When you have something that is successful, people they look at all of the good things of the situation like they look over the bad things. That’s why you have people with bad attitudes, because they don’t have people around them to put them in their places.

Because they think things are going good, just on board as a “yes man.” But then you have people that fail to succeed that people believe in, that’s me. I’m in that situation, I see both sides. I see how people can be on you one second and then totally off of you and not even call you to see if you’re still living or not.

For her to be so young and for them to just call her up and be like, yeah we're not fuckin with you anymore but um, good luck with that...that's rather harsh. And then to not hear those words with a plausible reason from Jay himself is what clearly hurts the most. I wasn't a fan of Teairra so other than the one song I know she had, I don't know how well her music did but I don't think she deserved that. I wonder what that is really all about. I mean other than the fact that the music industry is full of people who only love you when your hot and will definitely kick your ass to the curb when you're not, these people had what sounds like real relationships with Jay and he threw them away without a thought. I can't help but look at Jay with the side eye now. I mean, nothing Foxy or Teairra Mari can say will make people feel any differently about Jay-Z but I think it does allow us all to see that people - especially people in the entertainment business - feel like they don't owe anybody anything. I think she was supposed be happy she got her second advance OR just happy that Jay and whoever else even allowed to have the little success she had.

In any case, it seems like Teairra is still trying to make a career for herself on her own and if nothing else, she has learned a major lesson. This experince, I'm sure has only made her stronger, wiser and better. Foxy on the other hand, maybe now that she's with a former correctional officer, he'll keep her in line and she can figure out how to make a major come back.

Just For Giggles...

This is a sneak peek at New York's new show on Vh1 and some commentary from her I Love New York suitors and other VH1 randoms. SMH.

SYTYCD Result Show: A Night Full Of Surprises

WOW. I did not like last night's show. At all. Um, my first shock of the night came because I didn't really like the opening number. What followed was Cat telling Will that he was in the bottom two. Will was clearly surprised that his James Brown solo didn't save him. Then Cat tells Mark that he was safe. Mark couldn't believe it! Me neither boo. I want to be happy for him but my mouth is agape because I realized that either Twitch or Joshua would be in the bottom- and Mark wasn't as good as any of them. And I knew it would be Twitch just because I think overall, while they are both audience faves and have these great personalities, Joshua is the better dancer. When Twitch heard he would be in the bottom he was brought to tears. Cat had to go rub his back and make sure he was OK. Just wow.

What I wasn't so surprised about was the fact that Comfort and Courtney were in the bottom two - at least one of my predictions turned out to be right. And we all know it was so time for Comfort to leave and thank goodness America got it right. I'm actually happy knowing that I don't have to see Comfort in a sports bra doin the same solo over and over again.

Anyway, I just can't believe that we had to say goodbye to Will. It was that damn orange hat.

This is another example of how even the best of the best don't always take home the prize when America is voting(Jennifer Hudson anyone? Will's orange hat is Jennifer's aluminum foil cat suit and curly mop head hair). It is so much more than technical skill. If America had got it right and went based on performance ONLY, Mark would have gone home - even he knew it should have been him. But you have to have the whole package and America has to relate to you. America has to really like you. Will isn't cute and bootylicious like Joshua, he isn't yummy and hot to def like Mark, and he isn't fun and entertaining like Twitch. And I should have known. I just knew it would be Will and Katee in the end but I was thinking that based on skill. The silver lining is that WE got to witness the pure talent that is Will and we know Will is going to be dancer extraordinaire professionally...this is beyond just the beginning for him. Luh u Will...bye.

As for the final I think its anybody's game. With Will gone, I would like to say that it is going to be down to Katee and Joshua BUT America loves girls who look like Chelsie and Joshua's perm may be his downfall. It's all too much. I can't attempt to predict anymore.

P.S. I need for L.L. Cool J to please stop making music. Please. Continue to get hotter as you get older....that you can do.

Are Those Really Shirley Temple Curls?

Sherri know what, in this case words aren't even necessary. I can't. It's not that baby's fault.


Tyra Gets Waxy In NYC

OK so memba when Tyra's Madame Tussauds wax figure was revealed in DC? Well they just unveiled Tyra's newest wax model at the Madame Tussauds in NYC. I have to say that NYC waxy Tyra looks like a tranny Barbie....and she looks just like Tyra! Even more so than DC waxy Tyra. NYC waxy Ty's forehead is poppin and they have the lacefront down. I think its pretty dope that Tyra has two waxys. The nice, cute one with a sensible bang, and subtle make-up and the fierce tranny version with the serious eyebrow arches, more than enough make-up and a serious weave. I love them both but I think I'm really lovin NYC waxy. Do you see her givin DC waxy Tyra the side eye?

Growing Up Obama

People Mag features The Obamas and gives us an inside look on what life is like for the future First Daughters, Malia and Sasha.

PEOPLE: Someone told me today that you don't do birthday presents.
Michelle: No, because we spend hundreds of dollars on a birthday party and movie tickets and pizza and popcorn ...
Barack: That sleepover is enough. We want to teach some limits to them. And their friends bring over presents.
Michelle: They get so much stuff that it just becomes numbing. Malia believes there is still a Santa Claus even though she's a little wary because some of her friends are non-believers. But Malia says, "Ma, I know there is a Santa because there's no way you'd buy me all that stuff." [Laughing]

So what does a slumber party at the Obama house look like?
Barack: They're pretty noisy.
Michelle: The older they get, they just talk a lot. But they're at the age where they're pretty self-sufficient. [For Malia's birthday] we're going to go swimming, see Wall-E, make pizzas, have sundaes.
Barack: I usually go for the swim but this time I want to go to the movie just because Wall-E has gotten great reviews. I find actually that children's movies are the best movies these days. But I'll probably, after that, peel off until the cake.
Michelle: [Laughs] "Peel off."

How cute are they? I can actually see Michelle laughing at Barack for saying "Peel Off"...Peel off Barack? HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Do you give your girls an allowance?
Michelle: Sorta, kinda. [Laughs]
Barack: I'm out of town all the time, so Malia will say, "Hey, you owe me 10 weeks!" ... Originally, we were giving her a dollar a week as long as she did all her chores. It turns out that she's been doing her chores even without prompting from the allowance, which makes me feel guilty that she's been carrying on her end of the bargain and I haven't been as consistent.

What types of chores?
Barack: Setting the table, rinsing the dishes.
Michelle: They have to clean up their half of the third floor where they play. They have a closet of toys they have to clean up. They have to practice their piano every day.

What does discipline look like in your house?
Barack: Mommy raising her voice.
Michelle: It's usually a lecture. It's a lot of conversation. Or it's separating them. Or it's saying if you guys can't decide nicely what program to watch, then you don't get to watch anything. It's sort of pulling away a privilege. But in all honesty, we don't have to discipline –
Barack: If you ask them to do something, they're like any other kid ...
Michelle: They'll whine a little bit.
Barack: They'll test boundaries. But if you say, "Guys, this is what we need to do ..."
Michelle: An example of this is one night I was going out, I had to do a fund-raiser, and I told Malia, "You guys really need to have an early bedtime because you've got to get up tomorrow and have a busy day." So my mom was there, and my mom doesn't adhere to bedtime. She's kinda, "Well, maybe you wanna start taking your bath..." But that night, she said she sat down to watch TV with them and they both got up, turned off the TV and left. And my mom was like, "Where are you going?" And they said, "We have got to go to bed early today, Grandma." And they went downstairs, took their baths and went to bed, and my mom was just stunned.

I love them. To read more of the interview click: Daddy, I don't care who you are. You owe me $10.

So You Think You Can Dance? The Top 8 Make It Do Wut It Do

Ok so we're down to the final 8. The best of the best (wait, I'm not sure Comfort fits into that whole best of the best thing but just roll with it) and it is getting beyond exciting! Here is the thing tho, since we are down to the best dancers the show doesn't need to be two hours. All we need is the dancing. The practice clips were way too long and a bit annoying. The clip before the solos were great but the couples practicing....couldn't we at least take a half hour off the show? Other than that, I simply love So You Think You Can Dance and here is how it all went down.....

Will and Courtney

First Dance: It must be a gift and a curse to get Will as your partner. A gift because anything Will does is amazing and it makes you, as his partner look better...a curse cuz does anybody even see you when you are dancing next to Will? They got the Samba for their first dance. I was really focused on Will watching him shake but then I started watching Courtney and she was workin it...and her big bird yellow costume was zexy. I think this was an excellent way to start the show. They were both hot and I thought they meshed well. Me likey.

Second Dance: (I want Will to burn that orange hat...the shit doesn't even fit. Of course when you pop the hat falls was never really on.) OK. So song choice....perfect. They dance to Alicia Key's 'Like I'll Never See You Again' and it is a slow hip-hop dance. It was great. Just great! The steps were so intricate but it was really about them telling the story of holding on to the one you love. Through hip-hop they did that. I don't think it showcased any beyond fabulous skills BUT the performance was beautiforous.

Twitch and Katee

First Dance: I knew they were gonna get each other. And how cool is it that they knew each other before the show. And even better, they get a Mia Michaels. LOVES IT!!! Ummmm, that kiss....Twitch is now my new boyfriend. Mkay. But the theatrics of this piece was fantastic. The boyfriend/girlfriend with the Twitch not caring and Katee tryna beat him down but the chemistry is off the it. They KILLED IT. The moves were amazing, the choreography was amazing and their use of the door was out of control. Who knew a door could be so entertaining????!!! And here is the bottom line, KATEE IS DOPE!!!!!!!!!!! I fuckin love her. She is fierce!!!

And did ya'll hear Nigel tell Mary that he wasn't talkin bout her when he said that he was in the same situation as Twitch....those two need to just fuck already. BUT wait, that's a lot of teeth. Neva mind.

Second Dance: Broadway!! Very cute! Tyce just has a way of creating numbers that are just so fun and entertaining. I wasn't overwhelmed with this piece but I truly enjoyed it and I think Katee makes Twitch a better dancer. However, Twitch brings something that none of the other dancers bring. His energy is palpable. Thumbs up!

Mark and Comfort

First Dance: I didn't want anybody to be Comfort's partner. Mark is already hangin on by a thread and gettin Comfort is not gonna help! At least they got Hip-Hop to start with. And you know what.....I really liked it. Those two were giving it their all. I felt it. Mark was beyond cute with his hood look. He makes me giddy, seriously. His boyfriend is soooo lucky. Anyway, he didn't really hit it like Comfort did but he did the damn thing. For Comfort, this was even better than her Hip-Hop piece with Twitch last week and I thought that was the best she had ever done. So I'm happy with my boo and Comfort. Yay!

Second Dance: We knew this ish wasn't gonna be good and it wasn't. The Fox Trot or the waltz or anything that isn't hip-hop isn't doable for Comfort. Mark, in my opinion - and not just cuz I love him - tried to hold it together for the both of them. Again, Comfort learns the steps and she does the routine but she's just not believable. If Comfort isn't officially off this show tomorrow, I'm done. And Mark, my love, I think this is the end of the road for you too. *slow tear just hit my top lip* Not really, but if I could cry, I would shed a tear for you my love.

Joshua & Chelsie

First Dance: Joshua's booty is still the star of the show...even more so than his perm. These two did an Argentinian Tango. I think technically (you know cuz I'm an Argentinian Tango expert and all) they worked it. The leg movement, toe points, and arm extension looked perfect to me. I like them together and it worked. Wasn't my favorite or anything but I like the routine. Definitely liked it.

Second Dance: I think you all know that I don't like Disco. At all. Just. No. Joshua and Chelsie made Disco a lil fun for me! I enjoyed them...alot. Had me headin out for the night singing and askin people if they would grab my arm and and my ankle and swing lots of *crickets* one dude gave me serious *Audrina Eyes*.....well OK then. Anyway, the choreography clearly had a lot to do with it but I think Joshua and Chelsie brought a whloe notha zsugsh to Disco for me. Excellent.


Comfort: More of the same. I'm over it. At least she wore something slightly different than her usual sports bra, jacket, and jeans. This time there was a tank top. (P.S. maybe you should have spent more time paying attention in ballet class instead of krumpin on the ballet bars and gettin in trouble...I'm not sayin, but I'm sayin.)

Will: Love the James Brown wig and dance. Wished I could see more. Great way to show some personality.

Katee: Not the bestest ever but definitely a good one.

Mark: It's prolly cuz I'm in love with him but I like his weirdo moves.

Chelsie: Happy B-day! Great song choice. Cute solo.

Joshua: He did a split wit all that booty....

Courtney: I enjoy watching her dance by herself more so than with other people.

Twitch: Yup, Twitch is definitely my new crush.

F.U.'s SYTYCD summary.....I thought all the routines were fantastic with the exception of that Fox Trot. Again, if Comfort doesn't go home, I don't know if I'll make it. She is going to make a great hip-hop video choreographer one day but um, she can't hang with er'body else and really, it's almost not fair anymore. But what girl will be in the bottom with her? That is a hard one. I'm going to have to say it will be Courtney. Only cuz it couldn't or shouldn't dare be Katee and it was Chelsie's birthday and she's cute and er'body loves her. I don't know. What if it is Katee tho? Not everybody likes Broadway...but no. That can't happen. I'm gonna just say I don't know. All I know is Comfort is goin home. As for the guys, it has to be Mark goin home and I think it could very well be Twitch or Joshua in the bottom with him. This is getting to be too much!
