Get that limited edition Audemars, it could be
In a pivoted position, gotta pardon the fee…

Niggas be fallin’ in love with this pussy
Basting chicken and baking a couple of cookies
Dick? I’m a veteran — ain’t fucking with rookies
Shot a high school video and now we wanna play hooky
Baddest bitch, I’m the catalyst

SUPER SUNDAY Super Show and Sportsmanship!

By Stephfon Guidry

SUPERBOWL XLVI! It’s the word on everyone’s lips today, a game that produced more endorsements and commercials than almost any other event in national television. The Super Bowl is essentially a great game of football a battle of state pride, and this year did not disappoint as the NY Giants and NE Patriots took to the field with a hunger.  Constantly the names of Tom Brady, Victor Cruz—the End zone Salsa King–Eli and Payton Manning were thrown around the media hours before the game began. GIANTS took it home 21-17, they cut it close at the end but held the line and came through with a victory bringing a flash back to 2008 (Super Bowl XLII).

Super Sunday presented grand performances by Lenny Kravitz, Blake Lewis (the Voice), Kelly Clarkson, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., LMFAO, and Cee-Lo. Madonna turned out a stellar production for half-time coming on to the field carried by a Greek Legion belting out “Vogue”. Her collaborations with LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, MIA, and Cee-Lo were phenomenal. Madonna’s half-time concert included hits LMFAO’s “Sexy and I know it” “Like A Prayer” and her new chart topping single “Gimme All Your Luvin”.  She ended the vocal and visual experience of a lifetime with an electric field-seized banner of the words “WORLD PEACE”.

However the GIANTS win was overshadowed a bit by controversy over some very crude tweet of CNN correspondent, Roland Martin. Martin decided to comment on the H&M commercial featuring hunky soccer star, David Beckham, “Ain’t no real brush gonna buy some David Beckham H&M underwear! #superbowl” (Metroweekly.com) He continued his rant tweeting, “If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him! #superbowl” As fans and followers responded to him on twitter he last tweeted, “@briansmith31681 @onmysoapboxx you chose to call me homophobic when I’m cracking on Beckham because of soccer, Yes Ignorant!” His responses to criticism on twitter were remarks like, “you are out of touch with what I meant” or is this or that “slamming gays”. 

Following the astounding performance of the NY GIANTS, came the season 2 premiere of theVOICE! Christina Aguilerra, Adam Levine, Blake Lewis, and Cee-Lo Green prepare to find the most talented and unique new voice that will serenade America!

BET bans STUPID HOEzzzzz

By Stephfon Guidry

Is Freedom of Speech a reality? Or is it just an empty promise to the masses. The question arises as Platinum Recording Hip Hop Diva Nicki Minaj’s recent fashion forward and comedic couture music video “Stupid Hoe” has been yanked from BET. Much speculation about the video being BANNED comes from rumors that BET was not pleased with half naked women or it may have been the repetition of the lyrics “stupid hoe” throughout the song.  Sources from BET leaked to TMZ that the video was banned primarily due to its overall explicit nature. BET remember SHADE comes before reading.

Fans & stans, Barbie’s and Ken’s will all be anxious to see what Nicki Minaj performs for this Sunday for the Super bowl Half time show with Madonna–NBC I don’t think you’re ready.  “Stupid Hoe” was her second release of her upcoming album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and while BET pushed it out of programming YouTube and others still promote the aspiring artist.

Nicki Minaj Covers WMagazine Art & Fashion Issue!

By Melvin Browne

Hip-Hop Artist Nicki Minaj covers the November Issue of W Magazine for their ART & FASHION issue. Dressed in Haute Couture dresses by Versace and Dior, Art Director Francesco Vezzoli details his inspiration behind this 18th Century masterpiece.

Francesco Vezzoli was asked what perked his interest when it came to working with Nicki Minaj, to which he replied, “I wanted to play with the public image of a female hip-hop star. During my entire career, I have always been fascinated by powerful women in history. I have spent a lot of time researching the ways they were represented in art and how their images were used to mold the public imagination—and to convey aesthetic and philosophical ideas about beauty and sexual desire. My main interest has been to link the historical artistic approach to female representation to contemporary icons of the media era. For W, I wanted to turn the lovely Nicki Minaj into a powdered 18th-century courtesan.”

He also details how he was able to transform Nicki Minaj into the perfect image, Francesco said, “In her performances, Minaj makes very explicit and ­challenging use of her beauty and her body, so I thought of comparing her to some of the most famous courtesans in history: the Marquise de Montespan, Comtesse du Barry, Madame de Pompadour, and ­Madame Rimsky-­Korsakov. My idea was to reproduce four iconic portraits of some of the most fascinating females of the past in a series starring an American pop-culture role model. We tried to re-create those original portraits using similar furniture, props, and clothing, à la Visconti. Luckily enough, the result came out as surreal as it could be, just as I wished.”

Nicki Minaj is really advancing her career and revolutionizing what it means to be an Artist. W Magazine is recognized worldwide as Fashion’s Bible with pictures. Recognize and Appreciate her TALENT… Enjoy!

No Shows at the Award Show

By Stephfon Guidry

BET Hip Hop Awards entertained, opened ears and made you laugh; it mended a friendship that was long overdue for some forgiveness.  Truly da King of the South is the rubber band man, as T.I. bounced back with flexing (iHope he didn’t FLEX too much in jail) rhymes and his classic swagger the crowd welcomed his return. Atlantic Civic Center opened its doors to urban hip hop legends Heavy D, DMX, Da Brat and more.

First let me dish out all those tweeting #WINNING from their velvet seats last night:  Chris Brown took four awards all for his club banging, douging hit “Look at Me Now”, Lil Wayne scored meager two awards #IdemandAreCOUNT, Nicki Minaj won two as well and Kanye West, Jay-Z, Waka Floka Fame and more. Rap titan himself nominated for a dominating 18 nods receiving only two, Lil Wayne aka Lil Tunchi, gripped the coveted Lyricists of Year and Best Live Performer awards.  Rihanna found the love enough to comment positively on Chris Brown’s night of #WINNING, “It’s incredible to see how he pulled out the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him.”  (Msn.com) Performances that turned heads and kept the crowd fresh on the beat from the most notable Cyphers: Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Ludacris, Maybach Music Group, and Chris Breezy himself.   As the heavyweight lover grabbed the mic it took the show back to 1988 hits, beats, and a groove Heavy D a Hip Hop legend rocked the mic right.

“It ain’t a red carpet. It’s a sidewalk, bloody from the wolves eating red meat, and these spotlights don’t come with money — they come with police,” spoke LL Cool J to a rapt audience hanging on every word. LL Cool J challenged the newcomers to the game to use their mic for a message leaving the award show and hip hop with a charge of a new direction GLEE.

BET New Sitcom “Reed Between the Lines”

Following the Hip Hop Awards or Hood Honors premiered the black sitcom “Reed between the Lines”, featuring the talents of Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Tracee Ellis Ross. Daughter of the Diva and the quintessential only son of the most iconic African American family in television history (the Cosby Show, if you don’t know you have lived under a rock for eons!) come together to create their own merging of laughs, love and life lessons on a show all about the black family of today facing its problems together. Reed Between the lines l isn’t an open book or a NY Best seller and it needs some time to grow—yet the actors’ chemistry flows through the screen.  The show provides some comedy, casting that gives young and seasoned black actors a chance; Ross gives a convincing psychologist and Warner plays a professor eloquently.  I predict, Reed between the Lines potentially may tackle everything from maintaining marriage intimacy, raising children, keeping a family together, and life with friends as well as life with family—Ross and Warner just snagged a viewer in me. So tune in to BET on Tuesdays at 10 ET p.m. and catch “Reed Between the Lines”.
