Hailing straight out of Argentina, Basilio Silva is gaining much-needed momentum in the U.S. as a photographer that makes miracles happen. His catalog is big, brash, bold, and as European as those coffee shops we've all come to love so much. Share
A new video of Youtube seems to show the aftermath of a rainstorm in River Ridge, Louisiana -- and an oily residue is all over the streets. Don't know how true it is, but it seems to portray the idea that oil has somehow gotten into the water system.
For the past few weeks, I've been working on the new site, Popwife.com, and have turned this one into a blogspot blog, still potent, just not as funky. I'll still update this one every few days, but for that daily crack juice, check me out at the new site, popwife.com! Share
Your favorite rapper without an album, Nicki Minaj has been nominated fiddyleven times for a BET Award recently. Minaj, who's done everything for BET, including hosted a fashion show, ramped up ratings for "106 & Park" and more, is finally getting the love in return.
In addition to three nominations with her rap supergroup Young Money, Minaj is up for Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.
Also just when you thought things couldn't get any hotter for Nicki Minaj, there's rumors about a sex tape scandal. Whether it's rumor or not, Minaj has chosen not to confirm or deny the allegations which surfaced on a number of gossip sites.
The sex tape, if it exists, is said to be on sale for $100,000.
We doubt it.
Anyway, Minaj, whose debut album is yet to surface, is busy making hits, guesting on a slew of radio singles in play.
NFL player Dwayne Bowe has given the game away for NFL players everywhere. He recently told ESPN Magazine that players jump from hotel to hotel room. What's in the rooms? Women. Lots of them.
Bowe said having a groupie seek you out is played out. Now, the players coordinate through Facebook, Myspace and Twitter and arrange for the women to already be in the room.
"My rookie year, we were playing in San Diego," Bowe says. "You hear stories about groupies hanging out in hotel lobbies, but some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room. The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it importing."
Former coach Herm Edwards, who coached Kansas City three years ago, basically said Bowe is going to get jumped on.
"That's on Dwayne," Herm said. "I've always said that generally what happens in the locker room or on the field or around the players, it stays there."
Not no more.
A former NBA player has went on record about the rumor to end all rumors, saying Lebron's mother "absolutely" slept with his Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Delonte West.
So says NBA legend Calvin Murphy, who shared the tidbit on ESPN Radio. "Unfortunately, my sources in the NBA tell me that it's absolutely true. My sources, and they're legit, tell me that the only people that didn't know it was happening was LeBron and me."
If the rumor is true then the King is most certainly headed out of Cleveland, far, far away from his mother, West and anything that reminds him of Cleveland. (Finally, this would explain Lebron's cavalier performance in two games against Boston).
West, who was a decent shooting guard in recent years, has seen his playing time diminish as veteran point guard Mo Williams has caught on. West, who made headlines last offseason for a weapons charge blamed on his bipolar disorder, is still with the team as of now, but don't expect that to last long.
Meanwhile, he better hope Lebron doesn't want any getback. Things could get serious. Check the audio here. Share
ATL's princess of Crunk, Ciara, has released a video so hot, apparently that BET has even banned it.
How explicit does your video have to be for BET -- BET! -- to say it's too much???
Ciara is doing a bevy of suggestive dances in the video, and grinds constantly, but, BET -- the purveyor of skin videos banning this?
I don't know. Bey and Riri both have gotten away with some stuff. Although the song is clearly sexual, they haven't touched Trey Songz' video, and you know that's in the same lane.
What do you think? Watch the video here.
Toni Braxton is back with a new album, "Pulse" which debuted in the top 10 last week in album sales.
She's been through a lot lately, with a divorce, an autism diagnosis for her son, and a scandalous stage kiss with Mr. "I Invented Sex."
Braxton said the divorce from Keri Lewis, her husband of 8 years, sent her into the doldrums. "I turned to Bridget Jones and Rocky Road ice cream when my marriage ended. I'd watch the film, cry and sing All By Myself and eat a massive tub every day for two months. I gained 12 pounds,' she told the Daily Express.
In a recent interview Braxton said her stint as a Vegas performer gave her an opportunity to hang out with two music icons.
‘Vegas was wonderful – my run was supposed to extend to two years. Prince was across the street at the Rio, we’d hang out with Céline Dion and send flowers to each other,’ she told Metro. ‘But then I found out that my youngest son had autism and I had a little health scare and thought I’d never be able to record again. It was pretty bad because I had chronic fatigue and the doctors said: “Yada yada yada… you need a heart transplant."
Braxton said it was a false alarm.
‘Then they came back a few days later and said: “We misdiagnosed you – you actually have microvascular angina.” So I was like: “I’ll take that!”’
We'll take that, too, Ms. Braxton. Share
Singer Kelis has released the album cover art for her album "Fleshtones," which will be her fifth album to date. Since signing to the Will.I.Am.Music Group, Kelis has ramped up her public appearances in anticipation for a big album push.
Her divorce battle with rapper Nas has simmered down for the moment, giving the singer the time she needs to prep for the album release. Her single "Acapella," has been met with decent reviews so far.
"Fleshtones" features collabs with David Guetta, who made Kelly Rowland a star overseas. Kelis is actually bigger than Kelly is over in the U.K., despite limited marketing.
She's got her detractors, including PETA, which has went after the singer for her penchant to wear furs. But Kelis is making a big run for that Rihanna money and Beyonce money, pulling off the outfits, the weird photo shoots and outlandishness associated with it.
Can she be stopped? We doubt it.
