About a week ago, Kanye West launched a new, more, um, interesting blog of his own. The blog is actually really original and creative, in a Kanye West sort of way. Anyway, today he posted a long and rambling diatribe about creativity and what it means to create. I actually found it to be a really good piece of writing. It might sound corny, but the same kind of pain-inspired material we saw when ‘Ye made 808’s and Heartbreaks is felt again here. Hit the jump for the full statement… (more…)

Some things in life really aren’t fair. For example, why does some undeserving/played out/guido/tan/loser/chump with a 6-pack and a good nickname get to do a photo shoot with one of the hottest supermodels on the planet? Regardless, The Situation posed with Bar Refaeli for Interview Magazine. To see another picture of both in their underwear, click more. (more…)

The name Marquis Daniels probably doesn’t mean much to most of you.  He’s a mediocre-at-best shooting guard for the Boston Celtics, but more importantly, he is the proud owner of the most ridiculous piece of jewelry ever sculpted.  The necklace consists of 1,300 grams (or 2.9 pounds) of 14-karat gold and is smothered in white and cognac diamonds creating an exact replica of the player’s head, or possibly Whoopi Goldberg.  God, that’s amazing. He must have dropped billllllllsssss on this thing.  Click more to see it being made: (more…)

This video is seriously comical. Juelz and Birdmans conversation was super far from english. Diddy happends to be sitting on the hood of his lambo when he received the phone call, and I dont know if you realize but somebody is sitting in the driver seat. I don’t know what Lil Kim was talking about. Fabo was the only one who was somewhat normal engaging in conversation. Regardless, I bet that birthday celebration is going to be WILD. Its going down in NYC at M2 and expect to see a ton of other celebrities including Chris Brown, Al Harrington, Wilson Chandler, and many others.

Gary Coleman don’t take kindly to questioning. Which is why we’re not really sure why he agreed to appear on The Insider, which is basically the worst talk show any self-respecting man can appear on, second only to The View. After repeated questions concerning rumors he abuses his wife, Coleman blew up and started dropping f-bombs with a quickness. Don’t feel so bad Gary, talk shows have a way of unraveling even the toughest of people, like Bill O’Reilly. Read more to see other great moments in talk show meltdown history… (more…)

Male enhancement endorsement deals are like Nike contracts for celebrities over 60. Take the latest example of ex-coach and sports personality, Jimmy Johnson. Seems like this one was a no-brainer when you look at pictures like the one above. Anyway, Johnson is just one more star to get beaucoup money from making sure older gentlemen and college students on ecstasy can still get it up.

Producer Scott Storch’s Miami mansion was sold to Rockstar Energy Drink’s CEO Russ Weiner for a cool $6.75 million. Storch definitely took an L on this one considering he copped the double-pool 305 crib for $10.5 million. You can’t help but feel a little bad when you see these hotshots who spent years living beyond their means finally get buried in their own debt. Although it does make for entertaining news.

I didn’t even know Beyonce had a sister until I stumbled upon Solange Knowles’ remix of Dirty Projectors’ ridiculously hot single “Stillness Is The Move” off last summers’ Bitte Orca.  She took a perfect song, and re-perfected it with the head-nodding beat from Dr. Dre‘s “Xxplosive” and a sexy ass voice.  Over the weekend, the Dirty Projectors invited the singer on stage for their performance at a NYC Fashion Week party, where they put on a dope performance of “Stillness.”  See a video of the performance, downloads of the two versions of the song, and more on Solange after the jump.

John Mayer The Bigot: When Celebs Get Caught Being Racist 02/10/2010

Pretty boy and music’s resident tool bag, John Mayer, looks like even more of a douche bag in light of the recent racist comments he made during an interview with Playboy. The interview is riddled with Mayer dropping n-bombs, talking about “the black struggle” and saying how his dick is a white supremacist. Good thing the only people who listen to Mayer are little white girls. Maybe the worst part is, Mayer is far from the first celeb to show his true (racist) colors.

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly: Controversial Magazine Covers 02/03/2010

Lil’ Wayne is covering the February issue of Rolling Stone, and when I saw the cover (above) I was reminded of Vanity Fair’s recent controversial cover featuring Tiger the Convict. Apparently the Stone’s reporter touches on Wayne’s upcoming prison bid, which may somehow explain why RS chose a picture of Weezy flashing a gang sign. However they try to “artistically” explain it, I think it’s in poor taste. But Rolling Stone is hardly the first magazine to try to boost sales through controversial covers.

“IF WE DON’T DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS THE SHIT, YOU BEAT US UP VERBALLY AND MENTALLY, LIKE A CATHOLIC SCHOOL TEACHER BEATING A CREATIVE STUDENT INTO SUBMISSION.”

That sentence really sums up Kanye West‘s rambling, all-caps spazz out of a blog post today.  He includes the above pic with his girlfriend Amber Rose and there is a small hint at a new album, but the whole thing uses different scenes to basically say the same thing: “Fuck you for not appreciating my style. Stop talking shit. Fuck you.”  It’s awesome.  Click more to see the full post.

Radiohead held a benefit concert on Sunday night in LA to raise money for the disastrous earthquake in Haiti.  The show raised $572,754 as tickets were sold through an online auction with the top bid reaching $4,000 for a pair.  Justin Timberlake, Drew Barrymore, Flea, and Maggie Gyllenhaal were just a few of the celebrities spotted in the crowd.  The show was a  memorable one, as the occupancy of 1,300 is the smallest space Radiohead has played in LA in over thirteen years.  See below for more:

Jersey Shore On Jay Leno 01/24/2010

These fist-pumping guidos and guidettes may be unskilled at trivia games on Jay Leno’s TV show but they know what they’re doing when it comes to getting paid. The cast of Jersey Shore has reportedly turned down an offer from MTV of $5,000 per episode for a potential Season 2. With some members of The Hills making over $100,000 per episode, turning this offer down was a no-brainer.  MTV came back with an offer of $10,000 to which the cast has not yet responded, but I expect the two sides to eventually reach an agreement at a price much higher than $10,000 per episode.

Celebrity Endorsements We Hate To See 01/20/2010

It seems like yesterday brought nothing but disappointing news. Haiti is still bring ravaged by aftershocks, Democrats lost a crucial senate seat and on top of all that, Bible-thumping Tim Tebow announced he will be appearing in a Super Bowl ad endorsing Focus on the Family, a non-profit Christian group that opposes abortion in every single case (rape included). Regardless of your stance on abortion, I’m already sick of attending Sunday School every time I see Tebow’s eye black and don’t care to see precious SB ad space wasted on pushing some religious agenda. But Tebow is far from the first case of celebrity endorsement gone wrong, hit the jump to see a couple others…

Tiger Woods In Sex Rehab 01/19/2010

Tiger Woods checked into a sex rehabilitation clinic in Mississippi today. I couldn’t help but laugh initially because what exactly defines a sex addict?  Everyone loves sex, but I guess if loving it too much costs you your marriage, millions of dollars  in endorsements and your overall public image, then sex rehab may be a good call. I view this as another PR move by Tiger and his people, the second PR move in recent days after Russell Simmons tweeted earlier this week that Woods was to donate $3 million to the Haiti relief effort.  The Tiger Woods Foundation donated only $100,000 to the tsunami relief effort in 2004 and $200,000 to Baton Rouge Area Foundation for Hurricane Katrina. If Tiger’s camp can help portray him as a man with an addiction who is getting treatment and a humanitarian, they may be on their way to helping restore his image.

Jay-Z + Beyonce = Highest Earning Couple In Hollywood 01/14/2010

According to Entertainment News, Forbes and Billboard.com, Jay-Z and Beyonce were the most wealthy financially from 2008 to 2009. The couple unified for a whopping 122 million dollars between all of their endorsements, music and other sponsors. Believe it or not, Beyonce lead the way with $87 million including payments from Nintendo, General Mills, Crystal Geyser, L’Oréal, Giorgio Armani and Samantha Thavasa handbags. On the flip side, Jay-Z brought in a respectful $35 million primarily from music and private investments explicitly the struggling New Jersey Nets.

Making Guido A Business 01/12/2010

So I just started immersing myself in the amazing absurdity that is MTV’s Jersey Shore. If you don’t watch this show you should congratulate yourself for either living under a rock or not succumbing to the ugly face of pop culture. Anyway, to cut to the chase: It’s been reported that Snookie, the guidette who takes a fist to the face, just got paid $10,000 to host a fist pumping contest at the Hard Rock at FSU in Florida. To add insult to injury, Snookie’s gelled-up counterparts only make $7,500 for their club appearances. Guess being a guido isn’t the worst idea after all…

Mr. Douthit??? 01/08/2010

Patrick Douthit, aka 9th Wonder, has been invited by Duke University to teach an African American Studies course for the spring semester. The course will review songs from the Civil Rights & Black Power Movements, 9th focusing on “sampling soul”.

“The class is studying soul music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, the neighborhoods it came out of and where was the influence for this song to come out of,” Wonder said in an interview, “I’m excited man, it’s a new frontier for me. I’m always excited for new frontiers.”

But don’t get it twisted, this is not Wonder’s first time in the classroom. He previously taught a class on hip-hop at North Carolina Central University. I would love to take a class with Wonder as my teacher!
