I am a little disappointed by these women who think its okay to date, have sex, and consider a married man her boyfriend. More disappointed that she’d publicly announce it. Shouldn’t she have some shame in such a situation? I can see, maybe you made a mistake, but to carry on and take it public knowing when this man has a wife at home. Now to take it to a level of an imaginary status doesn’t irk me as much as does amuse me. See, that is a reflection of one seeking some type of validation and lacking self worth because it wasn’t good enough to be sleeping with the man, but it has to be this fairytale romance and that I’m” better than his wife” mentality that you have to pretend to be “more than.” Maybe “more than” should have gotten you the ring. You actually should be grateful to me that you did not have to suffer a failed marriage since women like you are like predators lying in wait. Don’t mind the children! We know that NOTHING will stop you.
I am disappointed that my marriage failed and with the women who participated with my husband to ensure that it would. I am thankfully through the pain and shame of having been with such a person who had no regard for his family.
Now the part that will make me rise is that you are now dishonoring the fact that there are children involved; MY CHILDREN! Do not think you will continue to belittle my marriage in the public eye without some recourse especially when my children are watching. They have and were a product of a marriage based upon love. I do recognize that word love is used in my behalf only so again; don’t twist the situation to benefit you. See children watch and they question, as mine are doing now wondering. The lack of consideration for them is making me emerge from the shadows and speak. You should have left well enough alone by keeping your affair what it is supposed to be; a secretive dishonorable act. Many of the other “more than” mistresses did. I didn’t find out about this “Price As Right Model” until after I separated but I am now completely aware of the fact that she knew about me. She knew I was living in Michigan in a home with my husband and children.
The fact is I married Dec 14, 1996 and did not separate from my spouse until 2005. Anything within those years is what they call an affair, fornication, cheating, etc. Pick a word of your choosing, it doesn’t matter, just another addition for the thesaurus. After the separation there were many of talks for reconciliation but without trust of my spouse and women, it was a waste of time.
I am coming forth to show my children that their mother did not allow these women and their father to do these things, and to let them know that I thought I was in a relationship with an honorable person. I did not find out about all these affairs until I separated and many started revealing afterwards. Thank goodness because the pain of what I did know was enough and God knew I probably was not ready for all the dirty details that were to unfold. My children need to know that I am not a doormat and that I have kept quiet to protect them and honor their privacy. I am a quiet, private individual who wishes not to indulge in these public displays of idiocy, but I am a MOTHER who will battle with anyone whom opposes the pride of my children.
My marriage vows meant something to me and I did whatever it took to make it work. I believed my husband when everything sounded so unbelievable. I stayed; I tried over and over again. My children are going to be left with the truth that I did what is right to save my marriage and it did not work out for us. My girls will know the blessings of being a good wife and the shame of being a Jezebel. My sons will learn how to be good husbands and the shame of entertaining Jezebel’s. What happened in my marriage is unfortunate but it will not be a trouble you have to constantly through in their face whenever you get a chance to sit down and write or talk about their father. If you’ve heard the word home wrecker consistently when people are describing you, then maybe you need to look in the mirror and instead of denying it, face it and deal with it. God forgives all and through him, I can forgive but again, I am a warrior and in my battle stance for as long as its necessary.
The individuality. People were in their own groups. They didn’t ball and steal styles. You had to be unique to make it. Now, you gotta be cookie cutter to make it.
I actually seen a kid with a jheri curl the other day. It might be on its way back. You’re laughing but I’m serious. I think sooner or later, it’s all going to be back. It’s gonna be Hammer time once again.
Me! Phillip Michael’s shit was dry. He had an afro curl. My shit hung in back!
Don't get elated because something had gone up or depressed because it went down. If I knew the facts, and it went down, I bought more of it. He also taught me that famous lesson about a margin of safety, that you don't drive a truck that weighs 9,900 pounds across a bridge that says "Limit 10,000 pounds" because you can't be that sure. If you see something like that, go a little further down the road and find one that says, "Limit 20,000 pounds." That's one you drive across.
And for me, it's that truth, finding the truth of the moment, of where I am at the time, not trying to cater to a certain demographic or being something I'm not, not driving the truck over a 10,000-pound bridge. There are so many similarities in what he was just saying. So for me, it's just having the discipline, and the confidence in who I am. If I go into a studio and find my truth of the moment, there are a number of people in the world who can relate to what I'm saying, and are going to buy into what I'm doing. Not because it's the new thing of the moment, but because it's genuine emotion. It's how I feel. This is how I articulate the world.
Around three months before the celebration of New Year, Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas casino-resort has secured two big acts Jay-Z and Coldplay to ring in the upcoming 2011. The rapper and the Chris Martin-fronted band are set to play their own materials before joining forces for a live duet.

"...A lot of people don't know I wrote all the hooks on the album. I arranged the music, did the transitions. [Other female rappers] are told what to do, but I run my entire empire; I don't think people would expect that..." Quoting: Nicki Minaj
Cassius is doing what the does best: dropping tin at expensive, trendy designer stores. The lucky retailer of the day is Barney’s, New York. Today, his outfit is impeccable, topped off with high-end Italian designer shoes. In the midst of shopping, a man approaches Cassius, taps him on the shoulder, and tells him that he really, really loves the footwear. Cassius looks up; it’s Kanye West. Cassius keeps it cool, thanks him, and introduces himself. The stars align; history is made. (This moment will almost certainly be reenacted dramatically on Behind The Music.)
The two get to talking as they shop. Kanye loves Cassius’ style, his attitude, his patrician hipsterdom. They talk for over half an hour. Kanye begins to reveal a little more about himself: his reinvention in the wake of the Taylor Swift disaster, and his thoughts on life, art, philosophy, hos (maybe), etc. Cassius advises the rapper on his day’s purchases. Eventually the two leave the store, shopping bags in tow, and exchange phone-numbers and emails. Kanye promises to keep in touch. And oh, does he.
The summons was signed Thursday by U.S. District Judge Charles Pannel Jr., who sentenced T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., for firearms violations.
The order, signed by T.I.'s probation officer, lists three possible violations of his bond: possession of ecstasy on Sept. 1, testing positive for opiates on Sept. 2 and associating on Sept. 1 with Cortez Thomas, a convicted felon.
Several pills confirmed to be a "controlled substance" were found on Grammy award-winning rapper and his new wife after they were stopped Sept. 1 on a Hollywood street after making an illegal U-turn, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
...the pills were found on T.I. and his new wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, and not in the Maybach, the luxury car they were in.
"...(Wife Beyonce Knowles and I) would have to spend much more time in London. Beyonce knows how much I love sports and has known about my interest in Arsenal for a while...I never want to be a back-seat investor. I want to be on the board, involved in the decision-making...I’m at the stage of my career where I am ready for another investment like this. I have really got into soccer over the last 10 years and I’ve been saying for some time I want a percentage of Arsenal."
...We started with an idea of creating piano software that felt like home to me...I've played many different software instruments of all kinds of keyboards and pianos, but none of them felt like home for me. I have my own studio, and it's this very special place where Ann and I are really able to create the sounds that we want and take the time to develop them. I wanted to be able to take my piano sound on the road with me as well as have it any time I wanted to record. Ann thought it would be interesting to bring in Thomas Scarbee because he created some bass sounds that we love and use often, but he hadn't done a virtual piano sound. We all got together in my studio and started to create it by going through this long process of sampling, recording every note, sound and expressive nuance. We ended up with my entire piano in virtual form."
