Clay Aiken Confirms He’s Gay . . . September 23, 2008

DUH!!!!  See what happens when your career is faltering.  You start fathering babies with old chicks and “admiting” the obvious.

It would be hard to come out in a more public way than new dad Clay Aiken has chosen to.

Clay Aiken is finally confirming what many people already knew: He’s gay.

The cover of the latest People magazine shows Aiken holding his infant son, Parker Foster Aiken, with the headline: “Yes, I’m Gay.” The cover also has the quote: “I cannot raise a child to lie or hide things.”

The magazine has an interview with Aiken and confirmed that he was on the cover but refused to release the article to The Associated Press until Wednesday.

The baby’s mother is Aiken’s friend and record producer Jaymes Foster.

Aiken, who gained fame as the runner-up on “American Idol” in 2003, rarely addressed the frequent rumors about his sexuality. In an interview with The Associated Press two years ago, he said: “I don’t really feel like I have anybody to answer to but myself and God and the people I love.”

The multiplatinum singer recently released the CD “On My Way Here” and made his Broadway debut this spring in “Monty Python’s Spamalot.”

ANTM Cycle 10 . . . September 10, 2008

Filed under: Pop Culture,That ish is funny to me!,TV — jden723 @ 8:33 pm

is not getting better with time.  LOL!

 

Here’s my view of the top 13:

Isis – Deep fried hot mess on a stick.  Of course you have issues with her face Miss J . . . “She’s a dude.”    I have no problem with her being a dude if she was hot.  But she is not.  So whatever point Tyra is trying to prove is loss in the sauce with this one.   I’ve seen better on Maury.

 

Analeigh – She’s aight in a “I work at Sonic”  kind of way.

 

Samantha – Hooters girl.

 

Hannah – Did she present herself in a way that legitimately caused others to view her as prejudiced?  Of course she did.  Did she pull the typical move that every white girl I have ever encountered that made prejudice remarks pull?  The crying, “OMG, they are horrible for thinking that of me,” move.  Of course she did and of course that discussion took place with other white women who don’t get it because it doesn’t effect them.  (Ok JDen, pull-up you are having flashbacks to being one of only a handful of black girls in your high school and living in college dorms where you were also one of few.)  Stepping off soap box.  I don’t find her very interesting to look at. 

 

 

Nakeisha – Ok, now come on.  I thought the big wannabe Grace Jones lookin’ chick with the bad teeth (Marveta maybe) from a couple of seasons ago was bad, but this girl is  . . . seriously. 

 

Lauren – I find her look weird.  They think she’s hot, guess we’ll be seeing her around for a while.

 

Niki – I love that comment, “Love child of Poisin Ivy and the Joker.”  So true.

 

Clark – Face is very angular. 

 

Marjorie – Just weird.  I guess her picture was cool.

 

Elina – One of my faves.  She does favor Angelina Jolie in her picks.

 

Sheena – The hoochie thing is just funny.  The whole fake boob thing – even funnier.

 

Brittany – She’s beautiful.  Not sure if she is gonna stick around.  Tyra doesn’t seem to like the pretty ones.  I mean the woman actually said she has proven she can make a million $ a year doing catalogs but not top model.  WTF!  That’s probably more than every contestant in every cycle combined.  None of them become TOP models.  Again, she has issues with the pretty ones.

 

Joslyn – Very attractive as well.  The weird baby talking is aggravating.

 

Overall favorites: Elina and Brittany.

My America’s Next Top Model contestant new season review!  I will post it asap.  I am writing it as we speak.  I started out speechless looking at this latest batch of  . . .  well, you’ll see.  Stay tuned.

 

“Stop Emailing Me Shaq!” Da Brat Goes to Prison! Say it Ain’t So! August 27, 2008

Filed under: Celebrities,My social commentary,That ish is funny to me! — jden723 @ 4:29 pm

Alexis Miller, an Atlanta hip-hop artist who goes by MaryJane, just got a restraining order against Shaquille O’Neal, alleging he threatened to hurt her and harassed her with heavy-breathing over the phone.

The docs claim following their break-up last month, Shaq “threatened to ‘blackball” [her] from the recording industry by paying established artists….$50,000 each for their agreement to refuse to perform or record with her in the future…”

According to court docs Shaq wrote her one email that reads, “I dnt no who the fuk u think u dealin wit u will neva be heard from one phone call is all I gotta make no try me. Sho me.”

The docs also allege Shaq sent her “an unsolicited vulgar and offensive illustration of a man physically restraining a woman while forcing her to engage in sexual intercourse with him.”

O’Neal is scheduled to appear before a judge on Sept. 4.    TMZ.com

What the hell?  I am just mad at him for the grammar. 

 

Da Brat got 3 years in prison, 7 years probation, 200 hours community service, substance abuse treatment, a mental health evaluation, and anger management for hitting a falcons cheerleader in the head with a half-full bottle of rum. 

Dayum when they were making the deal, didn’t the prosecution consider that the bottle was half-empty?  Harvey must be so disappointed.  (I’m shaking my  head sadly.)

 

My obsession continues . . . August 25, 2008

Sorry I have been out of the loop folks.  A sista has been dealing with things for real. 

Oddly enough, my obsession with all things trash TV has continued.  LOL!

As they say on VH1, “Watch and Discuss” . . .

Gone Country 2 – Lovin’ It!  I mean really, this is CelebReality gold.  A drunk Sean Young, a bitter Irene Cara, a sad N Sync’er (what the hell is his name), Sebastian Bach, Makayla Gordon (if I wasn’t a faithful American Idol watcher, I would be saying “Who? as well), way past his prime Lorenzo Lamas, and last but certainly not least, the greasiest-headed Jackson of them all – Jermaine “I am so retarded I named my son Jermagesty” Jackson.  I mean really, how could this possibly be bad?  LOL!

Outsiders Inn – Lovin This Too!  Maureen McCormick a.k.a. Marcia Brady a.k.a. Batshyt Crazy has decided to lease a BnB.  She calls upon her friends Carnie “Reality Chunkster” Wilson and Bobby Brown to help her run the BnB.  Does any of this make any sense?  HELL TO THE NAW.  But its awesome.  Carnie is the cook.  Does knowing how to eat qualify you as a chef?  Okay.  Bobby Brown is the director of entertainment.  Now, for the record, I love me some him.  But really has Bobby actually “entertained” anyone other than with his problems since My Perogative?  Well, no matter, throw in this bag of mixed nuts, some moonshine a.k.a. Tater Water, some locals right out of Deliverance, some other C/D list celeb visitors and you’ve got real humdinger of a show.  YeeeHaaaaw!

Queen Bees:  Gold Stars all around!!!  I am a little late to the party on this one, but I am catching up on the episodes.  Think Bad Girls Club for high school girls with a live-in therapist where they take the top “Heather” from several areas and try to change them in to someone we can tolerate.  But they kick them off when they lose to many gold stars.  Last week they threw Peerez Hilton into the mix and one of them ended up being called a younger cracked out Whitney Houston.  Okay granted, even a blind man could see the girl’s weave was jacked, but dayum! 

I Love Money – Yes.  I am still watching.  Why?  I just can’t stop myself.  I need help, you haven’t figured that out by now.

I Wanna Work for Diddy? – Why?  He’s an azz.  I am trying not to watch, I really am.

 Making the Band 4 – Not sure if I will stick with this one.  One word – “Aubrey.”  If she gets hit in the face with an iron maybe.  First episode definitely confirmed to me that the rumors were true about Diddy and LaurieAnn.  Situation jumped off like a lover’s quarrel and seemed to resolve itself as one.  The relationship tension between the two was so obvious, they probably should have edited it better.  But then again him and Kim “that’s my baby daddy” Porter have broken up so he can flaunt his escapade with LaurieAnn without the nagging.  By the way, both bands are booty.  Donnie is worse.  Not sure what is worse than sounding like azz, but if you come up with something, let me know.

From G’s to Gents  – LOL!  Need I say more.

The Hills – I never have, just won’t do it.  Can’t make me even if my eyes are glued open. 

Bridezillas!  – Awesome, gets more awesome every season.  Of course nothing tops the one chick getting left at the alter.  But I am lovin this show.  My 18 month old now yells “Biiiiiidezilllas!”  I don’t know which one this season has been craziest: The bride who was trying to eat herself into a new dress; the bride who wants everyone to be miserable and have a no fun wedding; the bride who got the groom a personal trainer and ate donuts during his training (did I mention she was as big as a house); the bride who quit her job without telling the groom and drives a jaguar and lives in a nasty house that is the brick equivalent of a doublewide; or the bride who told the guests she was gonna put out a bucket for cash at the wedding to reimburse her for the rehearsal dinner.  Its crazy on top of crazy.

Big Brother 10 – Still watching it.  Say what you want, the joint was definitely more interesting with Libra in it.  Don’t know what Ollie is gonna do without April, he has been getting it on the regular the whole time in the house.  Now that his “cuddle” partner is gone, I fear he may just get with the Long Island Troll Doll.

More to come.  Any suggestions?

Its foul as he!!, but I almost wish I had thought of it. . . July 18, 2008

Filed under: ME,My social commentary,That ish is funny to me! — jden723 @ 8:22 pm

There is a site that I have heard advertised on satelite radio for a while now but until yesterday hadn’t checked out, that will help married/ “committed” people find others to hook up with!  It is a full-out “legit” pay for play service.  This mess is straight foul, but right about now a sista could use a potential big idea to make some extra $$.  These idiots (not just cause they are cheating but because they are paying $$ to find someone to do it with) are gonna do it whether I like it or not.  Now, once again, someone has scooped me on making money off of somethign people do every day but are willing to pay for the convenience of cutting out the leg work.  Once again, its foul as he!!, but I kinda wish I’d thought of it.
