Jessica Simpson Pregnant with baby #2

Rumor has it…well it’s not quite a rumor. Jessica Simpson is expecting baby # 2 with fiance Eric Johnson. The couple are proud parents of 8 month old Maxwell Drew Johnson.

With Christmas less than a month away, this is an early present for Simpson…Us Weekly exclusively confirms. Simpson gave birth to baby Max this past May.

A source reveled to Us, “It definitely wasn’t planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again.”

I wonder what Weight Watchers is thinking, Simpson slimmed down the 60 of the 70 lbs she put on with baby # 1.

This will definitely be a Christmas to remember, congrats Jes!

T.I. Joins Kelsey Grammer In Starz ‘Boss’

AJC

 

Deadline.com reports that Atlanta rap star and actor T.I. has joined the cast of “Boss” on pay cable network Starz starring Kelsey Grammer as the mayor of Chicago hiding the fact he has a degenerative neurological disease.

Production for season two begins in Chicago Monday. His part will be in a season-long arc as a former gangbanger with an eye on a political career.

According to the story in Deadline.com, “he is the conduit between a local Alderman and the only group powerful  enough to function as a grassroots organization in the projects – gangs.”

Starz, like other paid cable networks that rely on subscriptions rather than advertising, doesn’t necessarily focus on overnight ratings but more about pleasing its subscribers. “Boss” was quickly renewed last fall despite modest numbers. (It opened at 659,000 viewers, then fell to 319,000 viewers week two. With repeated viewing, the debut drew about 3 million viewers over its first three days.)

Grammer won a Golden Globe earlier this year for his role on ‘Boss.”

T.I. has acted in three major films: “ATL,” “American Gangster” and most recently 2010’s “Takers.”

He is currently on a reality show, “T.I. and Tiny,” on VH1, which averages about 2.5 million viewers a week. Though the network has not said anything about a renewal, if T.I. is willing to move forward, I can’t imagine VH1 would say no for a second season.

Rihanna Explains Why She Collaborated With Chris Brown

From HelloBeautiful.com

Everyone questioned Rihanna’s judgment when she picked ex-boyfriend Chris Brown to be featured on her “Birthday Cake” remix and in a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest, Rihanna explained why she chose to collaborate with Chris Brown.

“The first song that came about was ‘Birthday Cake.’ I mean we ended up  recording them at the same time and executing them together, but I  reached out to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only  person that really–it made sense to do the record. Just as a musician  despite everything else that was going to be the person. You know I  thought about rappers, and I’ve done that so many times, and the hottest  R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the  track, and then in turn he was like ‘Why don’t you do the remix to my  track?’ and it was a trade off. We did two records. One for my fans. One for his fans, and that way our  fans can come together. There shouldn’t be a divide. You know? It’s  music, and it’s innocent.”

Yeah, Rihanna, I think you’re right…only Breezy could be the only one to speak these misogynistic lyrics laced with profanity.

 

 

Legggo Girl I wanna fuck you right now (right now) Been a long time, I’ve been missing your body Let me-let me turn the lights  down When I go down, it’s a private party Ooooh, it’s not even her  birthday But I wanna lick the icing off Give it to her in the worst  way Can’t wait to blow her candles out I want that cake, cake cake….

Ooh baby I like it, it’s so exciting Don’t try to hide it I’mma make  you my bitch

Cake cake cake cake….

Ooh baby I like it, it’s so exciting Don’t try to hide it I’mma make  you my bitch

Cake cake cake cake….

Doggy want the kitty Give me a heart attack and throw it  back Now watch me get it And I knew thiss but you the shit Damn, girl  you pretty Blowing out your candles, let me make a couple wishes

American Idol: Jessica Sanchez Covers Whitney Houston

Sixteen-year-old Jessica Sanchez covered the late Whitney Houston’s version of “I Will Always Love You” during last night’s American Idol “guys vs. girls” performance round.

“Not only are you one of the best singers tonight — I think you’re one of the best singers in the whole competition!” raved A.I. judge Randy Jackson. Take a look a her performance…the song starts at the :57 mark

She did an amazing job and sounded beautiful. Ashanti please take note, this is how you cover a Whitney Houston song!

Daddy Dearest: Ronald Fenty

Rihanna’s dad won’t be getting any father of the year awards, judging from a new interview.

Not only is Ronald Fenty taking credit for Rihanna’s sleek physique, saying that he prodded her to workout by calling her “fat,” he also revealed that he would be fine if Rihanna were to rekindle her romance with Brown, who plead guilty to assaulting the singer in a lover’s quarrel turned physical in 2009.

”Chris is a nice guy and everybody’s entitled to make mistakes in their life. God knows how many I’ve made,” Fenty tells the new issue of Heat magazine, when asked about the singer collaborating with her ex on two songs. “She’s her own woman now.”

Before attending the 54th annual Grammys with his daughter, whose given name is Robyn Fenty, Ronald Fenty had last seen the singer when she visited Barbados in August. He said that, at the time, the “Birthday Cake” singer was not looking her best and that he wasn’t shy about critiquing her body.

Where did he want her to lose weight at?

“I actually thought she was a little fat the last time I saw her,” he said. “When I saw her at this year’s Grammys, I thought she was back to her normal size. I used to joke with her, ‘Robyn,you’re getting too fat.’ But I think she’s fine. I think she looked excellent, as everyone saw, at the Grammys. She’s dieting, she’s working out.”

After two years of not speaking, Rihanna and Fenty only started communicating again in 2010. At the time of their reunion, Fenty said, “Maybe we’re not as close as we were when she was growing up here … But we are blood, we do not stay angry.” SOURCE

PAUSE!

 

So Mr. Fenty is ok with his daughter getting back with a person that has an anger issue.  Have you read the police report? I did and there is no way in all completed his probation, community service hail that I would allow my child to be put back in potential harms way. Being a nice person does not negate the fact that Chris has lashed out before in different way…remember this.

Did you forget about this incident Mr. Fenty?

Daddy Fenty, if I were you, I would keep my mouth shut because you’re not helping your daughter’s cause. The picture of her recent behavior is now clear.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Scroll II From The Greatest Salesman In The World

I will greet this day with love in my heart

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

For this is the greatest secret of success in all ventures. Muscle can split a shield and even destroy life but only the unseen power of love can open the hearts of men and until I master this art I will remain no more than a peddler in the market place. I will make love my greatest weapon and none on whom I call can defend against its force.

My reasoning they may counter; my speech they may distrust; my apparel they may disapprove; my face they may reject; and even my bargains may cause them suspicion; yet my love will melt all hearts liken to the sun whose rays soften the coldest clay.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and I will be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I speak? I will laud mine enemies and they will become friends; I will encourage my friends and they will become brothers. Always will I dig for reasons to applaud; never will I scratch for excuses to gossip. When I am tempted to criticize I will bite my tongue; when I am moved to praise I will shout from the roofs.

Is it not so that birds, the wind, the sea and all nature speaks with the music of praise for their creator? Cannot I speak with the same music to his children? Henceforth will I remember this secret and it will change my life.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I act? I will love all manners of men for each has qualities to be admired even though they be hidden. With love I will tear down the wall of suspicion and hate which they have built round their hearts and in its place will I build bridges so that my love may enter their souls.

I will love the ambitious for they can inspire me; I will love the failures for they can teach me. I will love the kings for they are but human; I will love the meek for they are divine. I will love the rich for they are yet lonely; I will love the poor for they are so many. I will love the young for the faith they hold; I will love the old for the wisdom they share. I will love the beautiful for their eyes of sadness; I will love the ugly for their souls of peace.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

But how will I react to the actions of others? With love. For just as love is my weapon to open the hearts of men, love is also my shield to repulse the arrows of hate and the spears of anger. Adversity and discouragement will beat against my new shield and become as the softest of rains. My shield will protect me in the market place and sustain me when I am alone. It will uplift me in moments of despair yet it will calm me in time of exultation. It will become stronger and more protective with use until one day I will cast aside and walk unencumbered among all manners of men and, when I do, my name will be raised high on the pyramid of life.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I confront each whom I meet? In only one way. In silence and to myself I will address him and say I Love You. Though spoken in silence these words will shine in my eyes, unwrinkle my brow, bring a smile to my lips, and echo in my voice; and his heart will be opened. And who is there who will say nay to my goods when his hearts feels my love?

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart. Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh; rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation. Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather I will uplift it with the knowledge and wisdom of the ages. Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer. Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

Henceforth will I love all mankind. From this moment all hate is let from my veins for I have not time to hate, only time to love. From this moment I take the first step required to become a man among men. With love I will increase my sales a hundred-fold and become a great salesman. If I have no other qualities I can succeed with love alone. Without it I will fail though I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world.

I will greet this day with love, and I will succeed.

 

Hello World: I’m Blue Ivy Carter

The first pics of Blue Ivy Carter are here. Beyonce Jay-Z just posted these absolutely gorgeous pics of their one month old baby girl. The Carter’s declined magazines offers for the Blue Ivy, instead they took control of her debut and created a tumblr account. 

helloblueivycarter.tumblr.com

Jay-Z shared the imtimate photos through his website, lifeandtimes.com, and posted this message to the fans:

We Welcome you to share in our joy.

Thank you for respecting
our privacy during this
Beautiful time in our lives.

The Carter Family

 

Isn’t she a beauty…whether she’s theirs biologically or not. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!!!!!

What’s In A Baby Name

Beyoncé and Jay-Z filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on January 26th to trademark the Blue Ivy name. This follows fashion designer Joseph Mbeh, who submitted an application to trademark ‘Blue Ivy Carter NYC’ just four days after the baby was born.

THIS IS GOING TO START A TREND…MAYBE I SHOULD TRADEMARK MY CHILDREN’S NAMES 😀

That request, along with another filed on January 20th, were rejected by the trademark office as they said the name belonged to a “very famous infant ” and customers would be tricked into believing that any product bearing the name would be associated with Jay-Z and Beyonce.

One Wisconsin boutique is in luck, though. The owners of a clothing store named Blue Ivy filed for a trademark back on Jan. 19, 2011, and the request was approved in August — well before Beyonce ever announced she was pregnant. (I’d sell the name for that MONEY!)

There have been some concerns raised by how quickly federal officers acted on the Carter’s trademark filing. Usually it takes several months for those applications to see the light of day, but Blue Ivy’s has seemingly been fast-tracked. (Money does talk)
