''It's important to have everybody represented in hip-hop, especially the South,'' said Miami rapper Trina (Katrina Le'verne Taylor), who has collaborated with rappers such as Ludacris and Missy Elliott. ''We have our own clothes and our own language,'' she said. She came dressed as Wonder Woman to the event at the James L. Knight Center. Hosted by comedian Lil' Duval, who has been a regular on BET's Comic View, the show will air in MTV Jams -- a hip-hop-oriented channel -- September 1-3.
This is the second year of the Ozone Awards, which were hosted in Orlando last year. The location for the 2008 show hasn't been decided.
What in the everlasting hell were Trina and Jacki-O thinking?!! That shit is not a good look.

I'm pretty sure she discussed her son's autism and how it has affected her and her family, but I have gotten tired than a mug and will have to give you all a summary of Jamie Foster Brown's 12-14 page interview later on this evening, cause I'll be damned right about now. Enjoy the couple of pics that I was able to post....mainly the one with her and her two sons. And I'll talk to yall later....much later. Blogging is hard work. Shit. Excuse my Swahili....cause I ain't French! Good day!
Ask Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds his feelings regarding his ex-wife accepting a proposal to marry Academy Award nominee Eddie 'I don't wanna be a pappy to Mel B.'s baby' Murphy after only 10 months of dating and a year and a half after leaving her longtime marriage to the laid-back crooner, and he'll tell you:
"I feel for Tracey and Eddie because of what they gotta go through. Everybody's on them and now (that they're engaged) they're going to be on them even more. And I wouldn't want that."
Well, at least that's what he told Lee Bailey of EURWEB.com. We don't think he meant it in a bad way, though. Keep reading:
Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds has always been looked upon as being a cool and laid back kind of brother ever since his entrance into the music industry back in the 80s. He appears to never be too high or too low, but our Lee Bailey has heard some say he can be a bit of a funny guy. In fact, he asked Edmonds about what it takes for him to let his proverbial hair down. "When I hang out and among friends," Face said. "And it doesn't have to be close friends, just in a fun environment then that's cool."
This idea of Babyface being a funny guy runs contrary to his public image. At times he appears to rarely flash a smile. The crooner says he's not trying act "funny" that's just his persona. He doesn't feel like a star at all. As a matter of fact he says he prefers it that way.
"I'm not standoffish to the point where it's ever rude, but at the same time I'm not really in that star mode most of the time," admitted Edmonds. He went on to say he feels for big time celebrities and what they have to go through with trash journalists that stoop to new lows to gain insight in their lives. It's not like I feel like a star or have ever really felt like that. A celebrity? Yeah, it gets me in restaurants and I can (go to the head of the line) at Disneyland. I like that part. But for me, I feel for Tracey and Eddie because of what they gotta go through. Everybody's on them and now (that they're engaged) they're going to be on them even more. And I wouldn't want that. That's like a little too much for me with people all in your business with their opinions of you and what your life choices are. I am kinda happy being a b star. That's OK to me. I like being a musician and a writer. I'm OK with that. I don't need to be the hottest guy or being looked at as anything other than with respect. I feel blessed to be in the space that I'm in. Even with what me and Tracey went through as far as being separated and being divorced because it was, more or less, respectful to me. The press has been pretty respectful and that's how I like to live."
Bless his ever loving heart! Don't you just wanna hug him?! Not one bad thing did he have to say about Eddie & Tracey. But then again, I'm not surprised. He's Babyface! It's good to know they're still on good terms with each other. As far as him labeling himself a 'b-list' star? He better stop playing!
A big-screen adaptation of Perry's hit stage play of the same title, Why Did I Get Married? is an intimate story about the difficulty of maintaining a solid love relationship in modern times. During a trip to the picturesque snowcapped mountains of Colorado, eight married college friends have gathered for their annual seven-day reunion. But the cozy mood is shattered when the group comes face-to-face with one pair’s infidelity. As secrets are revealed, each couple begins questioning the validity of their own marriage. Over the course of the weekend, husbands and wives take a hard look at their lives, wrestling with issues of commitment, betrayal and forgiveness as they seek a way forward.
I don't know about yall, but I can't remember the last time I saw so many good looking men in one movie! Malik Yoba, Michael Jai White, Richard T. Jones and Lamman Rucker...I thought I'd never see him again after Half & Half was canceled. For you all who don't remember, Lahman Rucker played Mona's (played by Rachael True) cutie pie of a chef boyfriend, Chase. Problem was she didn't know whether she wanted to be with Chase or her her upstairs neighbor/jumpoff. What made things worse were by the end of what we thought was the show's season finale (which turned out to be its series finale), Mona had finally decided who she wanted to share her life with, then...you know what? Ain't no need to dwell on things we can't change, right? Hell, I'm just happy at the fact that I'll soon be able to check his fine ass out on the big screen!
