Kanye West Jay Leno Interview

0 comments
SO KANYE READ MY BLOG AND DECIDED THAT HE NEEDS TO GO TO BITCHASSNESS REHAB LIKE I SUGGESTED. HERE IS HIS IMPROMPTU INTERVIEW ON JAY LENO BEFORE WHAT WILL PROBABLY BE HIS LAST PERFORMANCE FOR AWHILE. THIS APOLOGY WAS ENDEARING AND I ACTUALLY FEEL BAD FOR HIM. I HOPE THAT HE IS ACTUALLY REALIZING THAT HE NEEDS TO TAKE A STEP BACK AND REALLY TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIS ACTIONS. THESE MELTDOWNS AND OUTBURSTS ARE NOT HEALTHY! TAKE A LOOK! BACK 2 BASICS! ~LA JEFA~





HERE IS THE PERFORMANCE OF "RUN THIS TOWN"

Music MONDAY:VMA'S

0 comments
SO THE TALK OF MUSIC MONDAY IS CLEARLY THE VMA'S...FOR ONCE I CAN ACTUALLY SAY THAT THEY DEFINITELY KEPT ME WATCHING. AFTER A LACK LUSTER COUPLE OF YEARS THE VMA'S REDEEMED THEMSELVES!!!

FIRST AND FOREMOST JANET JACKSON'S OPENING TRIBUTE TO HER BROTHER MICHAEL JACKSON WAS AMAZING. THE CLOSING NUMBER BY JAY-Z AND ALICIA WAS CLASSIC, UNFORTUNATELY, ALL OF THAT WAS OVERSHADOWED BY A BUNCH OF RE-TARDS (IN THE SPIRIT OF THE HANGOVER)!!!

FIRST UP!! BITCH ASS KANYE WEST...

THE POSTER CHILD FOR DIDDY'S BITCHASSNESS MOVEMENT. WHEN KEEPIN' IT REAL GOES WRONG...

I MEAN LET'S CALL A SPADE A SPADE ;REGARDLESS OF WHAT HE FELT FOR THE CONSTANT YEAR TO YEAR UNJUST CHOOSING OF VMA WINNERS...HE WAS COMPLETELY IN THE WRONG!!! KANYE VIES FOR ATTENTION DAY IN AND DAY OUT. HE HAS A NEED FOR THE WORLD TO HEAR EVERYTHING THAT IS ON HIS MIND, REGARDLESS OF THE CONTEXT. HE GOT A PASS WITH THE GEORGE BUSH THING, MATTER OF FACT, I WAS ROCKING WITH 'YE ON THAT SO WE AREN'T GOING TO COUNT THAT ONE. HE GOT A PASS FOR THE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS WALK OUT FOR NOT WINNING, HE GOT ANOTHER PASS FOR HIS STUNT AT THE EUROPE MTV VIDEO AWARDS, YET ANOTHER PASS FOR HIS BACKSTAGE RANT AT THE 2007 VMA'S, NOT TO MENTION ALL THE OTHER PASSES FOR THE COUNTLESS RANDOM CRAZY ISH HE PULLED TIME AND TIME AGAIN AT DIFFERENT VENUES AND EVENTS, BUT HIS PASSES ARE OFFICIALLY DONE. IF DAVE CHAPPELLE WAS DOING HIS RACE DRAFT 'YE WOULD BE BANISHED...NOBODY WANTS YOU! YOU HAVE SET US BACK MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. JUST WHEN WE THOUGHT THINGS WERE GETTING A TAD BIT BETTER YOU HAVE RICH EXECS SAYING, "SEE THEY ARE GETTING TOO COMFORTABLE."

THE ONLY SAVING GRACE FOR KANYE'S BITCHASSNESS MOVE WAS THAT FOR ONCE IT WASN'T ABOUT HIM. HE WAS ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE BUT NONETHELESS, HE MADE IT ABOUT HIMSELF BY DOING IT THE WAY HE DID. 'YE TOOK THE MICROPHONE FROM, 19 YEAR OLD TAYLOR SWIFT AND SAID, "TAYLOR I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU. I'LL LET YOU FINISH BUT BEYONCE HAD ONE OF THE BEST VIDEOS OF ALL TIME. ONE OF THE BEST VIDEOS OF ALL TIME!" IN HIS HEAD THIS SOUNDED AND FELT GOOD. HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF, I CAN REDEEM ALL MY PAST TRANSGRESSIONS BY STICKING UP FOR BEYONCE, BUT IN HIS HEAD HE CONVENIENTLY LEFT OUT...WINNER ON STAGE, CORRECTION FIRST TIME WINNER ON STAGE, MICROPHONE NEEDS TO BE SNATCHED OUT OF FIRST TIME WINNER'S HAND, CAMERAS ROLLING, BEYONCE DIDN'T CO-SIGN, AND YOU DON'T RUN ISH!!

HOPEFULLY MTV WILL BAN HIM FROM FUTURE AWARDS UNTIL HE GOES TO BITCHASSNESS REHAB!! HE RELEASED TWO APOLOGIES SINCE THE INCIDENT BUT I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT POSTING THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE PURE BS! AT THIS POINT YOUR APOLOGIES ARE POINTLESS!

NEXT UP: LADY GAGA I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO COMMENT PICTURES ARE WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS IN THIS CASE A THOUSAND BAD WORDS...TAKE A LOOK...






LAST BUT NOT LEAST LIL MAMA!!


NOT TO MENTION THAT SHE HAS NO BUSINESS JUDGING ANYBODY'S SHOW BUT NOW WE THINK WE GOT IT LIKE THAT TO GET UP ON STAGE WITH JAY-Z AND ALICIA...ULTIMATE FAIL!!!



SHE PULLED A T-PAIN!! SHE IS ANOTHER ONE THAT IS OFFICIALLY BANNED FROM DAVE CHAPPELLE'S RACE DRAFT. YOU KILLED THE CAREER THAT YOU NEVER HAD. I'M SORRY, MAYBE RANDY JACKSON HAS BEEN GIVING YOU TOO MUCH PRAISE AND HAS GASSED YOUR HEAD UP! SMH! AFTER THE INCIDENT AND THE TWITSTERIA, (TWITTER HYSTERIA) LIL MAMA RELEASED A STATEMENT:

"I did not mean any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys," the statement reads. "I admire them and look up to them as role models. 'Empire State of Mind' had my emotions running high. In that moment I came up onstage to celebrate my two icons singing about NY."

WE NEED TO GET BACK 2 BASICS AND LEARN HOW TO ACT RIGHT!! GET YOUR LIVES TOGETHER PEOPLE!

QUICK NOTE: I WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT NOTHING WAS MENTIONED ABOUT TUPAC AND THE ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH EVEN A R.I.P. TUPAC WOULD HAVE BEEN SUFFICIENT :( UNTIL NEXT YEAR!!

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: R.I.P. Aaliyah

0 comments


On August 25, 2001 the world lost a beautiful and talented R&B singer, Aaliyah Dana Haughton. It is hard to believe that 8 years have already passed! Today's Throwback Thursday is dedicated strictly to her! Enjoy her life through her music!! May you be Enjoying Heaven!

In the summer of 1994, Aaliyah introduced the world to her talent with her debut hit "Back and Forth", she continued to Bless the Music game with hits such as, "Age Ain't Nothin But a Number", "One in a Million", "Hot Like Fire", "If your Girl Only Knew", "Four Page Letter", to name a few. She was taken all too soon, but she continues to live on through the talent that God gifted her with...her Angelic voice! Take time out and enjoy the hits!! Bless! Back 2 Basics!

HERE IS THE VIDEO TO AALIYAH'S DEBUT SONG: "BACK AND FORTH"


IN 1996, AALIYAH TEAMED UP WITH SUPER PRODUCER TIMBALAND AND MISS ELLIOT TO CREATE A CLASSIC ALBUM THAT STILL GOES HARD IN MY CD PLAYER TO DATE..."ONE IN A MILLION" NO SOPHOMORE SLUMP HERE!! I LEAVE YOU WITH THE VIDEO TO ONE OF THE HITS OFF THE ALBUM "4 PAGE LETTER"




HER FIRST MOVIE APPEARANCE WAS ALONG SIDE JET LI IN "ROMEO MUST DIE" SHE NOT ONLY ACTED IN THE MOVIE BUT CONTRIBUTED TO IT'S SOUNDTRACK PRODUCING A HIT SINGLE WITH "TRY AGAIN"




IN 2001, AALIYAH MADE SURE TO SHOW HER TRANSITION FROM A TEENAGE TOMBOY TO WOMANHOOD WITH THIS HIT OFF HER HER SELF-TITLED THIRD ALBUM "AALIYAH"




UNFORTUNATELY WHILE WRAPPING UP FILMING FOR HER SECOND SINGLE, "ROCK THE BOAT" OFF THIS ALBUM IN THE BAHAMAS, AALIYAH AND 8 OTHERS WERE KILLED IN A PLANE CRASH SHORTLY AFTER TAKE OFF.




TOMORROW IS NOT PROMISED! BE SURE TO LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST AND TELL YOUR LOVED ONES THAT YOU LOVE THEM! R.I.H. (REST IN HEAVEN) AALIYAH!

CHRIS BROWN INTERVIEW ON CNN

0 comments
CNN aired the Larry King Live sit-down with Chris Brown, his mom Joyce Hawkins, and lawyer Mark Geragos. TWITTER was in full effect mostly harping on his bow-tie...SMH. Here is the interview...




CHRIS SAYS HE IS STILL IN LOVE WITH RIHANNA



LARRY KING TRIES TO GET THE DETAILS OF THAT NIGHT, BUT TO NO AVAIL


"THAT'S NOT WHO I AM AS A PERSON"


CHRIS'S EXPLANATION ABOUT THE JET SKI'S AND CHILLIN' AT DIDDY'S


"I'M NOT A MAN FULLY YET"



"PEOPLE FEED OFF NEGATIVITY IT'S LIKE A DRUG TO THEM"


I KNOW THIS INTERVIEW WAS SUPPOSED TO BE BIG BUT NOTHING NEW WAS REALLY DISCUSSED, NO NEW DETAILS REVEALED...IT WAS MORE OF A REITERATION OF HOW SORRY AND REMORSEFUL CHRIS IS AND ON A LIGHTER NOTE, A DEMONSTRATION OF HOW HE CONTINUES TO DISTRACT US WITH HIS FASHION CHOICES (LOL). CHRIS BROWN'S BOWTIE IS A NUMBER ONE TRENDING TOPIC ON TWITTER RIGHT NOW SMH.

HEADLINES READ, "CHRIS BREAKS HIS SILENCE", BUT WE'VE HEARD FROM HIM ALREADY! WELL HOPEFULLY WE, OR BETTER YET, THE MEDIA CAN MOVE ON!! LET'S GET BACK 2 BASICS!
