Kid Sister f. Kanye West

Because you've prolly never seen this video. The early 90s swishy jackets are cute.

Sexual Eruption Dance/Pop/Electro Remix

YouTube hasn't been posting to my blog correctly (we're working on that), so here's the link to the "Sexual Eruption" remix featuring Robyn. I like it lots. Click here.

Happy Birthday Viagra

Today marks the 10th year since Viagra was approved for prescription use. There's no telling how many millions of lives it's changed (for men and women), marriages it's saved and self-esteem it's raised. Sadly, I know a few young men who can benefit from some pill poppin, know what I'm saying? Happy Birthday. Go celebrate!

Don't Front on the One Piece

This post is in response to someone who tried to play me for wearing a one piece bathing suit during spring break. The thing is, would it be better to look wale-ish on the beach or look cute, classy, and camouflaged (you know, not reveling that bit of pudge around the midsection that a two-week spring break crash diet is unable to trim)? The answer is obvious. So...I've found some sexy one piece bathing suits/monokinis for you all to enjoy (men and women alike). No, they are not pasties with a patch to place over your stomach, or ridiculous stripper ish with lots of cut outs! (amazing bathing suits!)

What I dont ever want to see on the beach...

This on top of a bathing suit! "Make Ya Mama Proud Take That Thing TWo Sizes Down!"

(who else has a vision of a plus-sized 10-year-old at the YMCA or fresh air fund camp...with one too many beads in her hair.)

And if you should be so awful as to wear this to the beach or the pool, please remove your white tee and pants before you get in the water. I'm so serious right now. There is no excuse. Has anyone been on a Carnival Cruise? You know what I am talking about if you have.

When DiD Bow Wow Lose his V-Card? Tyra Investigates.

I was in my room bored as hell when a Tyra Show rerun came on featuring Eve, Dita Von Teese, Bow Wow and Omarion. So glad after all of these years of wondering and Bow Wow saying "I'm good" to any mention of him having a sex life, we finally get the goods! I'm kinda salty Tyra got the answers to easily, but whatev! Bow Wow lost his v-card at 15 and O, at 14 with an older chick in school who "taught him some things." Nice.

Barack Obama: 'A More Perfect Union' (Full Speech)

Since everyone else blogged about this, and I do care about politics, I figured I'd add Obama's Tuesday speech to atb also. Obama's message about race relations and religion is powerful. Check out the whole thing if you have the time.

Potential Black Friends for Zoe Kravitz


I love Zoe Kravitz, but I always see her hanging out with Rumer Willis or bf Ben Foster. I say we add some color to the NOW! Here are some prospects for Zo Zo's hot chocolate buddies:

Keisha Whitaker's daughter, Autumn

Just like Zoe, Autumn is a Hollywood glamour girl (by default thanks to Mama K) with famous parents. Surely step-dad Forest can support those Fred Segal shopping trips and lunch at The Ivy so they can have all the girly fun they want.

Gerren Taylor

Teen Model Queen Gerren Taylor has already had campaigns with Marc Jacobs and Tommy Hilfiger. Although she made the unforgivable misstep of appearing on BET's wackness of a show "Baldwin Hills," and seeming as if she wants to be a typical 18-year-old, she still knows all of the right people. Though Chanel Iman has kinda taken her spot, she can still make a starring come back. And she's pretty, which is certainly a requirement to be Zoe's black friend.

Jurnee Smollett

Jurnee Smollett has resurfaced as of recent, thanks to her role in "The Great Debaters." She's stylish, elegant and talented; a great companion for Ms. Kravitz. She's been sorta famous since she was a little kid, and hopefully she sent MK and Ashley Christmas card since '93 so they remember her from those "Full House" days. Not to mention, the creole "Eve's Bayou" hair I'm sure will give her extra points with Zo Zo. They can like, discuss how they can wash-n-go and none of their other black friends can.

Evan Jackson, I mean, Ross
From what I hear, Evan is quite the ladies man in Hollytown. That said, it wouldn't hurt to have him in the friend arsenal. Famous mom...trying to do his own thing...interesting kid (I haven't decided if that's a good or bad thing)...yeah, he fits the bill.

No BitchAssNess Tonight

Don't forget to watch the season finale of Making the Wannabe's 4 tonight. And where is Donnie's single? Don't tell me it's that lamo song "So Over U" or "I Don't Care?"

OOOh, he said what?! Damon Dash on Jay-Z

This interview doesn't get too crunk, but it's always interesting to hear Dame
talk about Jay. Clearly the situation is a little salty, even though Dame tries not to admit it. Anytime a celebrity says they "haven't talked to" another celebrity who used to be their best friend, it's code for "f that mf...but my publist is sitting right here." Check out Bossip (another blog you should def. bookmark) for the full interview. Parts 2 and 3 are more interesting.

Amanda Luttrell Garrigus: Who is she?

For all of you E!aholics, you may have noticed "Daily 10" correspondent Amanda Luttrell Garrigus on-air a few times. She's an uber fashionable L.A. socialite and magazine editor. On the short, she was born in Tanzania and grew up in Toronto. She studied magazine journalism at the well-respected Ryerson University and was an editor at Flare magazine (read: Canadian Vogue). She has worked for Allure, Vogue and Glamour, and as a stylist for celebrities such as Mariah Carey. She achieved notoriety in L.A. as the editor of Angeleno (a fashion/lifestyle rag) and well, just being fabulous. You can catch her regularly on "The Daily 10". Love it! (source:

With her cute baby (who's now like 5) and equally hot sister.

Temporary Freedom for T.I.

A judge will allow T.I. to enjoy a whiff of non-air conditioned stratosphere this Sunday. The fallen rapper will attend an Easter service at the Georgia Dome sponsored by mega church New Birth Missionary Baptist, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

I'm sorry, but I think this is a ploy for homedude to get some press. Like, for real, does T.I. even go to church? Does he even belong to New Birth? I ain't eva heard not one person say they went to New Birth and seen any other King in there but Jesus Christ. I dare someone to ask dude to quote a scripture. I put five on it he'll be lost for words. Jesus can't help you now muda fuckaaaa!

Sadly, I'm sure a number of waynehead babies are going to make their way to the Dome anticipating a T.I. concert...not even dressed for a service. Damn shame.

Maybe T.I. will perform "Prayin' for Help"?

Or maybe he can get one of his Grand Hustle goons to kidnap all of the judges in Atlanta, drug them and threaten to kill them if they incarcerate T.I.P? But knowing T.I., he'll want to kidnap someone his own damn self. Dude will never learn. I'm done.

[Girl Stuff] Reason #1 To Visit London: Shopping of Course!


I studied abroad in London last year and came back with more clothes and shoes than I knew what to do with. As a result, while in London, I didn't have very much money to eat--the pound is a killer! But who cares when you come home with exclusive stuff no one else has, right?

But now you too can shop the London look at, which features international shipping. Now if only New Look, Office, Miss Selfridge, Oasis, Primark and every other High Street clothing store could jump on the bandwagon!

Also, and somewhat disappointingly, Topshop will be opening its first international flagship store in New York (Soho area) this fall. Not sure how I feel about the move (i.e. people having my clothes).

Photo (right): People waiting in line last year to snag Kate Moss' Topshop collection (available at Barney's in the states). Yeah...I skipped that!

Day 26/Making the Band 4--Can't Nobody Look Original?!

Someone tell me why all of these dudes look like a bootleg version of an already famous singer/rapper? Per usual, I blame Diddy.

Here is what Mr. Sean John must have been thinking:

"Bobby Valentino is a lost cause, let's put Robert in the group...

And Ginuwine done vanished. Let's put Willie in the group...

And my dude Jaheim, well he done gone back to the block. Let's put Brian in the group...

And T.I..well...this dude looks like T.I.'s questionable little brother, especially with the dookie
Waynehead skully on. Let's put Qwanell in the group...

And I ain't done nothin to support obesity, and he won't have no problem getting my cheesecake as long as he get's a taste. Let's put Mike in the group. Yeah, BadBoy."
