Seems like Lil Wayne's [positive] tweets about love is not what people are trying to read. The other night, twitterville made #lilwaynedeeptweets a trending topic, which led Wayne to tweet this, this morning:
I mean, everyone had ish to say about his tweets and how random he is, but isn't that what Twitter is for? Ran-dom-ness!
People were getting too technical about the situation. Personally, I felt him. Although he gave me that he was high out of his mind and just thinking über high thoughts, his tweets made you think, and let you in on who he is.

Read the concept of the video and why Kanye didn't want to be in it here.
Video also available on iTunes. ♥
Check out Monica's new video "Everything To Me," which features Chad OchoCinco as her leading man.
In the video, Monica wears garments designed by the late, great Alexander McQueen. She dedicates the video to him in the end.
Okay, Mo! I didn't think the end would play out the way it did. I like surprises, though. It's good to see Monica stepping outside of the box. There's never really been a video that puts 'obsessed' broads on blast. And she looks beautiful!
This video was directed by Benny Boom. Nice concept, boo!
In case you missed it, here's Monica explaining the plot behind the video on 106 and Park:
Rihanna performs "Rude Boy" and "Hard" on AOL Music Sessions.
Rihanna - Hard
Love those shades, Rih! Gimme! And I love AOL Music Sessions. ♥
Yep. That thang is something serious!
Amber's photo was Kanye's first post on his newly designed blog. I love how it puts on for his girl.
FYI: The photo is inspired from the cover of Grace Jones' 1985 Compilation Album, Island Life.
These weren't posted, but here are two more Amber-inspired by Grace-poses:
K, back to reality. Love Amb, but no one can do it like my Grace. ♥
Take a sneak peek at LisaRaye's new reality show, The Real McCoy.

Local/National rap artist Curren$y gave a helluva performance Tuesday night at the Howlin' Wolf.
Opening acts included Illy, Big Dyce, Shawn Awesome, Ka$hflow, Bzy Beee, AA, Monsta Beatz, Aqua Force, and Nesby Phips. They all killed it! The local hip hop scene is taking over.
The venue was packed. Fans eagerly and patiently waited for Curren$y to hit the stage. And you know it wouldn't have been official if the Howlin' Wolf wasn't clowdy. That crowd took smoking to a whole other level; as if smoking is an art. But, if you don't know anything about Curren$y, you know that he's passionate about his doobies.
Once Curren$y hit the stage, he blew it UP. With a few special guests, he tore the Howlin' Wolf down.
Videos coming soon, but for now, peep the photos. ♥

Fans of Whitney Houston walked put in disgust during the singer's performance in Australia. last night. Whitney's voice cracked numerous times, she was off key, and could not pull it together to save her soul! Fans say it was the worst concert they have ever witnessed.
Whitney, what?! First off, WHY does her stomach look like that? She needs to GO back with that comeback. It's just all over for her. It's clear to me that Whitney is still hittin' that pipe. Case closed. ♥
Rihanna celebrated her 22nd birthday in Phoenix, Arizona this past Saturday night.
Here's a little sample of what her night was like, including a lap dance from an interesting stripper.
Rih's beau, Matt Kemp, surprised her with a dance from Bridget the Midget. ♥
So, if you're following either Lil Duval or Natalie from The Bad Girls Club, or even both, you know that they aren't the best of friends.
One night, Lil Duval took a glance at the hit reality show and knew from jump that he was not a fan. He went in. He started trending topics about Natalie and her chin, and down right called her out for being the "basic b-tch queen." LOL! Natalie got wind of his remarks and tried to give him the business. #fail.
Well, coincidentally, the two were both catching the same flight to L.A. yesterday. When Lil Duval realized he would be on the same flight as Natalie, he pulled some strings, moved seats around and conducted this "interview."
PURE HILARITY. You gotta watch!
ROTFLMBO!! Oh em gee! I died! This is the funniest video ever!
It is clear that Lil Duval can't stand her, and she just eats it up as, "you know you want me." Girl, bye! Lol. The part when he went at her chin (2:56 mark), and she was like "it's kinda cute," that face he gave her killed me!
It's so funny how he's letting her choke herself with her dumbness, especially at the end. She's so clueless. TEAM DUVAL! Lol.
Follow Lil Duval and Natalie. And if you care to know how Natalie really feels about the "beef," read about it here. ♥
With 6 days remaining until he goes "IN," Rapper Lil Wayne is going in on twitter.
He joined on Feb. 21, and within minutes his account was verified (making it official that it's him) and up to 35,000+ followers. Now, on the 3rd day, he is at 134,685 followers! But what should you expect, it's Weezy F. Baby!
FYI: Lil Tune Chi is the nickname of Wayne's first born son. ♥

Wait. What? Okay, the video was ave (average), but what was with all the hype about Trina, Eve and Diamond making appearances? Clearly you'd have to really pay attention, and have patience to see them -- in the end of the video. And I bet they were on set all day. Smh. Don't blink too fast, y'all, you might miss 'em. ♥
Peep Nicki Minaj on the cover of the March issue of Fader Magazine.

Last week, former childhood star Gary Coleman appeared on The Insider.
Check him out as he goes ape sh-t on guest panelist, Attorney Lisa Pullman, as she asks him about the his alleged violent relationship with his wife:
Oh em gee.
First off, he scares me. And not in the "omg, I'm scared he might choke me up right quick" kinda way, cuz I'll pop and throw his lil behind. But in the "omg, WHY does he look like that?!" sort of way. He doesn't look too right, but I won't get into him.
I mean, it's plain to see that she was clearly provoking him, but I'm saying tho, G, you had to get like that tho?
If it weren't true, he wouldn't have gotten that heated. Sir went OFF. Lol. He has issues, and I'ma need for that psychologist to diagnose him real quick.
I can't wait to see part two. Video coming soon! ♥
