Tupac Shakur

In memory...

Monday, June 14, 2010

Toni Braxton:

On Sunday, the not-so talented singer appeared on A&E's "Private Sessions". During her set, she appeared to sing un-connecting notes...maybe it's me or maybe it's not me...but can she sing? I mean really sing?

It was a bit strange to hear these un-connecting notes during a pre-recorded session.


Should we blame LaFace Records for giving Toni her "break"?

Tupac Shakur

A movie detailing the life of Rapper Tupac Shakur is headed to the big screen.

According to Reports:

...the lawsuit between Afeni Shakur's Amaru Entertainment and Morgan Creek has been settled -- whether in or out of court is unclear -- and the latter's long-planned Tupac Shakur biopic can now finally move ahead. Training Day director Antoine Fuqua will begin shooting the film about the rapper this September, according to his statements to Digital Spy (via The Playlist): "I've been working on that for a while with Morgan Creek and Jim Robinson," he told the site. "I just got the greenlight from him and we're going in September. I've just started to prep that."

White Skin

So-called A-list celebrities such as Beyonce Knowles, Rihanna, Lil Kim and Ashwari Rai are using a skin whitening product to lighten their skin.

Hollywood's best kept secret has been unveiled by these A-listers. Maybelline came out with an innovative foundation and compact duo called ‘WhiteStay UV’ that instantly lightens your skin tone upon application.


The product lightens your skin by a few shades with a formula that is infused with skin boosting Vitamin C. The uniqueness of the product lies in the whitening bead in the foundation bottle, which is activated when you shake it just before use.

Ashley Judd

..Not sure if you all are aware of this, Ashley Judd recently graduated from Harvard University. She received her Masters in Public Administration at the John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Farrah Franklin

...Has opened up about time spent as a member of the group "Destiny Child". In a interview with Vibe, she states the following:

...Naturally, you're going to look out for your family. There's a lot of things I didn't understand at 18 and there's a lot of things I knew, that [the girls] didn't understand. [Hiring family] gives a little favoritism. [In Destiny's Child] I felt like I was put aside... Matthew [Knowles] was our manager, then Tina [Knowles] did hair and styling, then our road manager was Beyonce's cousin, then our assistant road manager was Beyonce's other cousin, then we had an attorney that was Beyonce's other cousin, and Solange that was traveling with us. Her whole family was on tour with them... If there was someone else I could've spoken to outside of the family, I think it would've been a lot better...

She went on to say:

...If you're getting in a [Destiny's Child] type group, then that's what you're getting into. But if that wasn't explained to you and there were some other things that could've been talked about like 'How 'bout some people are able to sing this part'... you have to really understand what you're getting into and what your role is. As long as everyone understands that then you can do well, but if you don't understand that it can be confusing. Then later on you prove yourself even more and if they're good people they'll say 'Hey, I know this wasn't what we talked about, but you seem like you're doing your thing and you can do this now.'

It was so crazy, because although Beyonce is who she is today, we were friends first and I was already doing my own thing. I already had a $650,000 house. I already had a Beamer and Benz. To be honest with you, my cars were better than theirs. That's how I was meeting them. My man was a manager for K-Ci & Jojo, so we were well off, plus I was working three jobs on top of that, including modeling here and there. So I didn't feel like the playing field was too much different. I've been doing this since I was 4-years-old. I was always the captain of my team, but I've also always been the new girl, being the military brat. When I got in the group I was happy. I wasn't even thinking about [being the star]. I'm 18-years-old and I&'m in Destiny's Child! I've dealt with bitches my whole life and I've never gotten paid for it. So you think I'm going to come in a group, get paid and have a problem? Oh no...
