Andre 3000 Will Star In Jimi Hendrix Biopic

Andre Benjamin, better known as Andre 3000, is set to star in Jimi Hendrix biopic. According to the Irish Film And Television Network, the Outkast rapper will play Hendrix during his time in England between 1966 and 1967, as he prepared for his musical debut with the ‘Are You Experienced’ album.

The film, set to be titled “All Is By My Side”, will be directed by John Riley, the man responsible for movies including “Red Tails” and “U-Turn”.

It’s believed the rapper has already flown to Ireland to begin filming for his starring role. Not new to acting, however, Benjamin has already had small roles in several movies including “Idlewild”, “Four Brothers”, “Be Cool” and “Scary Movie 4″.

Do you think Andre 3000 was the right choice to take on this role? In my opinion, I couldn’t have picked a better choice. Can’t wait to see how well he’ll do.

Chris Brown Performs “Turn Up The Music” on “DWTS”

Bieber Graduates High School

Eighteen year old Justin Bieber has earned his High School diploma. While most artists quit school to focus on their music profession, Bieber was able to earn his degree between multi-platinum selling albums, world-wide tours and a hectic promotional schedule.

“I just finished high school,” Bieber recently told England’s Daily Telegraph. “I passed my test – I’m free! It was hard doing school and work every day.”

Where did he find the motivation? “That was something my mom really wanted me to do, so I had to do it for her. I mean, this kind of lifestyle has given me a different perspective on life. I’ve been able to travel the world. At school, usually you have to do a lot of writing and reading. I’m really not into that stuff. I like to be out there.”

Despite his disdain for school work, that’s something to be proud of. There are a number of very successful musicians who’ve yet to make the accomplishment.
The list includes some of today’s major super stars, hence, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Britney Spears just to name a few.

You should be proud of yourself, congrats Bieber.


Five Signs Your Relationship Was Destined To Fail

Was your relationship already set up to fail from the beginning? There are many times women find themselves at the end of a relationship and mad brokenhearted. Often times taken off guard that it’s ended. But perhaps the relationship was destined to fail. Sometimes there are warning signs before you ever get into a relationship that should have told you it was doomed.

1. You Didn’t Really Know Him I’ve been a victim of infatuation. I met a man on Monday, fell in love by Thursday and was in a relationship by Saturday. Okay maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration but you get it. Essentially I was swept up in the romanticism of meeting someone who I had this instant connection with only to discover that we really didn’t have as much in common when the rose colored glasses came off. My relationship was destined to end because I entered the relationship in a whirlwind and only wound up thrown off my ass.


    Say It Ain’t So: Oprah Loses $330 Million on OWN Network

    The queen of all media, Oprah Winfrey, has suffered a loss with her OWN network. Unfortunately, the network hasn’t garnered the millions of viewers the talk show maven had hoped for.

    In a recent article; Bloomberg Businessweek, estimates suggest the network has lost about $330 million. Although not Winfrey’s money; she has no personal financial stake in the business venture, her name is on it and she is the forefront.

    OWN has seen week numbers in viewership and a few cancellations of programming, for example, ‘The Rosie Show’, after only 6 months on air. Rumors have since suggested Rosie O’Donnell and Oprah have been on the outs following the cancellation. One show still going strong, however, ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’, where Winfrey invites celebrity guests and persons of interest, such as Whitney Houston’s family, for exclusive one on ones. Despite the odds, however, Oprah says she intends on sticking it through to the end. But for now, only time will tell and, perhaps, a change in programming and good faith will save the networks efforts.


    What The Stars Wore: 2012 Costume Institute Gala

    Every year the stars flock to the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, showing off their favorite designer’s latest designs, and, of course, this year was no different. Here’s what some of your favorite stars wore.

    Beyonce was in attendance wearing this Givenchy sheer and embellished number with a purple feathery tail.

    And here’s the back of the dress.

    Not very flattering for the back but still one of the better dressed of the night.

    Sister Solange Knowles opted for this yellow Rachel Roy dress.

    She was also accompanied by the designer herself.

    Rihanna in black and leather scale design Tom Ford dress. Scalelike designs seem to be catching on this season.

    And here’s the back

    Not the best dressed of the night but she pulls of the look really well. She has the height and the long legs to make a plain gown look elegant.


    Tami Roman Scared To Lose Her Main Source of Income

    Tami Roman is speaking out against a law suit prohibiting the use of footage where her line of hair extensions can be used for episodes of ‘Basketball Wives’.

    TMZ reports, Roman has asked that a Texas court NOT ban future episodes of the reality show from airing … because, according to her, millions would suffer.

    Back in March, Roman was sued by Crème de la Crème hair company for allegedly bailing on her endorsement duties and then promoting her OWN hair line instead. The company asked the court to stop VH1 from showing any segments where Tami promoted her line instead of theirs.

    However, Roman claims, in court documents, that she is, in fact, the victim because Crème didn’t pay her on time, thus breaking any obligation she had to them or their hair extensions. She has since asked the court to let the show air as is and have Crème remove her name and any likeness from any products and even pay her court costs.

    At the moment a judgement has not been ruled.

    I guess they haven’t realized by now Tami’s no joke.

    On another note, ‘BBW’ may be in jeopardy for an entirely different reason.

    Bag Lady: When Your Past Relationships Keeps You From Finding Mr. Right

    The Emotionally Slutty & The Bag Lady
    By: Dee Rene

    “Bag lady, you gon’ miss your bus. You can’t hurry up. Cuz you got too much stuff.” – Erykah Badu, “Bag Lady”

    If you’ve ever dated someone longer than 20 minutes, it’s likely you’ve also encountered heart-break. With each heart-break, hopefully you learned some nugget of truth to pack away in your emotional baggage. Sadly, many of us are also packing the bricks of pain from that heartbreak too. Slowly but surely we become the bag lady Erykah badu was singing about.

    Our baggage contains many things – daddy issues, weight problems, self-esteem breakdowns, financial burdens and everything in between. Although each and every experience should shape you and give you some valuable lesson, you cannot take all of that with you to a new situation. There is a limit.

    Everyone is allowed to have baggage but you are only allowed two carryon items. When we enter into a relationship dragging a 10-piece-matching-luggage- set of hot pink pain and despair there’s no way for us to truly be with someone new. You crowd out love and miss out on opportunities to love and be loved with all of that baggage.

    Does this mean you need to be a perfect person who has never been hurt to get a man?

    Absolutely not.

    But you owe it to a new man to enter the relationship as a whole heart, not broken pieces in a zip lock bag. If you are curious why you can’t seem to attract love, it may be your huge bags getting in your way. Men only like to fix up cars – not women. He is willing to help you carry your issues but everyone has a breaking point. Trust me, no man is helping you with that 10-piece-matching-luggage set. You’ve got to downsize on your own and enter the relationship whole.

    Women also tend to enter into relationships being emotional sluts. You are essentially doing too much, too soon, and too often.

    Chris Brown: FORTUNE Album Webisode, Toy Collection Launch

    In preparation for his album release later this month, Chris Brown has delivered another webisode showcasing the first debut of his toy collection “Dum English”. He presented the collection to his fans at the TAG boutique in Melrose, CA last week. He also debuted his first art collection thereafter. Very impressive for the just turned 23 year old, right? The singer celebrated his 23rd just this past Saturday. Congrats Breezy.

    On another note, are we liking that nose ring? Not so sure, I am. The only man ever to pull that off and still look masculine was Tupac. I don’t know about that but congrats on everything Mr. Brown.

    Nicki Minaj Pepsi Commercial (Extended Cut)

    Nicki Minaj has jumped aboard the pepsi endorsement trail and , perhaps, a hefty payout. Smart move if you ask me. She’s now joined the ranks of Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Britney Spears and more to promote the brand. Here’s the extended version of the long awaited commercial, featuring the rapper’s hit single “Moment For Life”.


    Mayweather Still Undefeated In Fight Against Cotto

    In one of the most challenging fights of his career, Floyd Mayweather Jr. battled Miguel Cotto ,Saturday night, and was once again named the undefeated champion of the world in his win of the WBA super welterweight title.

    Although Mayweather gave, not one, but two post fight interviews and even made up with interviewer Larry Merchant after a public fall out concluding his then fight with Victor Ortiz last September, Miguel Cotto made a quick exit not providing any post fight interviews. He’s since been called a sore loser.

    Cotto may be a bit down and in the outs, at the moment, but he certainly gave Mayweather a fight for his money, going round for round, for the entire 12 rounds. To say the least, the fight had everyone on their toes pondering if Cotto would be the man to finally defeat THE Floyd Mayweather Jr. When asked during his post interview if he’d been challenged Mayweather admitted Cotto had been an excellent boxer but he had to give the fans a match to watch, some form of entertainment. Was that his pride talking? Perhaps. But he’s right, the fight was entertaining and also very intense. So yes, we the fans, enjoyed every round of it! Although the numbers indicated the two boxers were neck and neck on the score card ultimately Cotto only won 3 out of the 12 rounds and by unanimous decision Floyd was once again named the champ.

    *Side Note:* Was it just us or did Justin Bieber’s presence seem a tab bit out of place alongside The Money Team. If you ask me, he even looked a bit scared at times.

    Overall, great fight!
