Rest In Power: Heavy D


Last night, I went to see "Tower Heist" and much to my delight Heavy D makes a cameo as a security guard. I instantly felt butterflies in my stomach as if I was 13 again watching the "Now That We Found Love" video for the first time. His performance on the BET awards had me jumping on the bed in my hotel room screaming every word. I apologize to the folks in the room below me but it was HEAVY VONDIDDLEE DIDDLEE DIDDLEE DEE!! For some reason, Heavy D always made me smile. He had an amazing energy & charm about him even without me ever having met him. 

Throughout the rest of the movie I thought, "Look how far Heavy D has come, from Hip Hop to movies grossing MILLIONS". It made me proud and honored to have spent many an allowance payment on his tapes... yes... cassette tapes. The songs, Sprite commercials, TV appearances, movies... *Sigh*

Dwight Arrington Myers, you were the best to do it. Thank you for the music, memories, and butterflies <3

Bubbz Reviews: The Help

Last night, I attended a screening of Dreamworks new movie "The Help". The movie is based on Kathryn Stockett's book of the same name and tells the story of Black maids working in White households in 1960's Jackson, Mississippi. 


Abilene (Viola Davis) & Minny (Octavia Spencer), the maids, were easy to relate to even if you weren't raised in the 60s. Skeeter (Emma Stone) didn't play the typical "White girl helping the poor Black folks". Her motive was to establish herself as a writer and when consequences for that success arose she didn't abandon the ones who helped her, she stood and fought with them. Hilly (Bryce Dallas Howard) is a southern bell & socialite determined to keep her community as lily white as possible & truly ignorant of how much "The Help" do to keep her relevant. 


And I cried... ooooh I cried like a baby! 

There were some great one liners that are sure to take over Twitter when it opens August 10th. Bryce Dallas Howard's Hilly was sooooooooo evil and clueless it truly made you hate her character. Viola Davis & Octavia Spencer were genius as always. Cicely Tyson's appearance was amazing because...well... she's like 175 years old! YOU GO GIRL!! 


"The Help" was excellent, both as entertainment and a history lesson.


We were treated to goodie bags from Liquid Soul Media which featured a church fan, pocket mirror, and a delicious cupcake from Southern Girl Desserts.

Extreme Couponing: A $300K house for $16!!!

Thanks to a little-known provision in state law, enterprising Texan Kenneth Robinson -- either a hero or a squatter, depending on your point of view -- has taken possession of a foreclosed $300,000 house for a mere $16. That's the amount he forked over to file a claim of "adverse possession" of the property with the Denton County courthouse.

Robinson contends that the abandoned house is his for the taking, since neither the original owner nor the bank is likely to go to the trouble or expense of kicking him out. If he can manage to stay in the property for three years, he says, the law grants him the right to petition the court for title to the house.

In Case You Were Wondering...

Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher are here to give you some advice on life


Oh...

The #Struggle 4 Relevance

King B *yawns* released her video for "Best Thing I Never Had" and the web is a flame with praise.

But here's the thing...

1) This really sounds like a bitter bitch anthem- Lamenting on how glad you are the dude you were in love with "blew it" is just... backwards. Maybe she & Drake can get a BOGO with a therapist to help them get over it... 

2) If she "never had" him, how could he blow it? Obviously, she was into dude because she's singing about how much she loved him and he hurt her ... this is making my head hurt...

3) Beyonce in LINGERIE!!! Like... wait... WHAT?!! This is the leader of the Creole Ladies Auxillary club! You can't be writhing around in your unmentionables like that Bey... BEY!!




I understand this album is a flop for an artist of Beyonce's caliber, I just don't think running around in her draws is going to change the game. She's got 4 singles out & 2 videos from an album with 10 tracks. At this point, cut your losses and executive produce another movie so you can star in it.

And let the blond hair go...please!

Damn Son! Literally

Bryson Bryant aka NeNe Leake's bad ass son got popped yesterday for boostin' out of a convenience store.


*Blank DAMN Stare*


Bryson spent the night in the clink after getting arrested around 9pm last night. He's being held for shoplifting and already has a probation violation from getting busted with marijuana last year. 

Oddly enough, Nene hasn't made a comment about this but she just tweeted:

"My day just got started off wrong! Damn."

Pretty Little Liars

Maci, Catelynn, Farrah, & Amber from MTV's hit show "Teen Mom" got together to record this nice little PSA


Cuddling is better than sex?!! Since when?!! Well... Maybe in Amber's case because Gary is... well...

In all seriousness, I appreciate what they're trying to do but they had the chance to "just cuddle" and didn't. We also know good and damn well they are loving the MTV paycheck shine they're getting. My only question is: Why does Farrah look like a muppet?

While Trump was looking for a birth certificate.....Obama went and found a death certificate! -Angela 

GOP response “ We have evidence that Bin Laden is not Dead we have exclusive footage of him on vacation in Roswell, New Mexico with Elvis, Tupac, and Biggie”. -LeVone

I Can't Rock Witcha on This

Bobby V & Bobby Brown got together to update Brown's classic "Rock Witcha". 

Who deemed this necessary?

Why is Bobby V STILL singing through his nose? Why is he still singing period. 

Yeah, I'm ignoring the fact that Bobby Brown sounds like he smoked a box of cigars because that's what crack will do to you so...

Remy Leans Back...Into Her Cell


New York's top court decided to keep Remy Ma in the pokey for shooting a friend she accused of stealing $3000 out of her purse.

The Court of Appeals rejected arguments that a judge didn't properly inform jurors before they rendered a guilty verdict. Remy will serve 8 years in prison for criminal possession of a weapon and two counts of assault.

Tiny Does T.I. In Prison

That sounds... I mean it happened but ... 


Ok so Tiny- T.I.'s wife not a big hairy man with an ironic nickname- went to see her prison prone husband & got a little touchy feeling in the visiting room. 

While inmates are allowed to hug & kiss their loved ones at the beginning & end of visits, Tameka took it to a HONUVALEVA and gave the Kang's thang hand hugs in rapid succession. Unfortunately, for Tip's testes the couple was caught & TI was sent to a higher security area where he can't make calls or have visitors. 

 

While I commend Tiny for trying to help a brotha out, she makes some really bad decisions behind this dude. She constantly risks getting herself locked up to please him. Who's gonna raise the babies if both of them are in the clink?

I Aint Heard Of That

Guess Who's Back

LINDSAY LOHAN!!! 


You know the old saying:
Everytime a rapper goes to jail & white girl leaves rehab!

In Lindsay's case it took TWO.

Lindsay Lohan has left California’s Betty Ford Center after 90 days of treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. The 24-year-old underwent court-ordered treatment at the rehab center after violating probation several times for a 2007 driving under the influence conviction. It was unclear where Lohan was headed when she left the treatment center early yesterday. She is due back in court for a progress hearing February 25th.  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

The Beehive Turns 50! 

 
A 92-year-old Illinois woman credited with creating the beehive hairdo is being honored on the 50th anniversary of the style. Margaret Vinci Heldt of Elmhurst is being honored by SmithBucklin Services, manager of trade association Cosmetologists Chicago, for her 1961 creation, which she said was inspired by a hat she owned at the time. Paul Dykstra, vice president of SmithBucklin Services, said the beehive ‘do “revolutionized styling and created a decade-long fashion trend.” Dykstra said the trade association has created a scholarship in Heldt’s name to commemorate her contribution to the world of hairstyles.
 

Is It That Bad?


Kelly Rowland was partying in Vegas with her store bought titties out.

Now Kelly is far from broke & had a couple - and I mean TWO- hit records last year, so what is this about?

Kelly, I need you to get it together, get it in a studio with a good team behind you, & get an album out. 

DO NOT sign to Bad Boy or Cash Money... I know you've been thinking about it but DON'T!!

Peace Out!


But you just got here! You're only 2 albums & a few features in! 

..."Smoking Gun" is my shit! ...

Conspiracy Theories anyone? 
Maybe J. Sulli is pulling a Dave Chapelle... Maybe her label told her to lose weight... Maybe she doesn't have anymore "violence against men" songs to write because men think she's psycho and won't date her anymore. 

*Shrugs* 

Whatever the case maybe, you'll be missed Jaz, just don't take too long. 

You aint Beyonce!
