Oh Really Poet v. 41

Oh Really Poet v. 41

by Poet Taylor

Well… I swear I might blink and the Grammy’s will be here. Funny even thousands of dead birds and fish didn’t stop our favorite Hollywierd familia from their normal shenanigans. Look at who needs a damn watch (Lauryn Hill), who’s just sex partners (Rihanna), who’s pleading guilty… (Lawrence Taylor 0_0), who’s breaking down at concerts (Usher) and who’s losing in love (awwww Kevin Hart)…Read on for all that and so much more of an inside look at the good, the bad and the ugly of the celebrities we love to hate and side-eye… J

EVERYTHING IS A O.K….
I guess you could say Aretha Franklin, is finally clearing up some of the rumors surrounding her mystery illness. While Ms. Aretha has gone on record saying she was hospitalized, had a successful surgery, is recovering nicely. She denounced rumors that she ever suffered from pancreatic cancer…Hmmmm even though her own family members backed the media reports stating different. During a recent interview, accord to the “Queen of Soul: “I don’t know where ‘pancreatic cancer’ came from. I was sitting there reading the newspaper and it was saying someone in my family said that. No one in my family ever said that to anybody.” She had only gone to the hospital because of a sharp pain in her side. Also adding: “[My doctor] said, ‘The surgery that you just had is going to add 15 to 20 more years to your life,” she said, adding that she’s slimmed “down to a rockin’ [size] 16-18. It’s getting better every day. I plan on keeping this weight that I have now — I’m so happy with it.” Hmmm, so no cancer then I’m gonna go with “gastric bypass” for $800 Alex…either way…Go Ms. Aretha Go!

I CAN’T SUE YOU FOR THAT…
Albert Haynesworth of the Washington Redskins is living proof that the system sometimes still works. As you recall stripper, Silvia Mena, decided to sue him for $10 million, after he dumped her. No seriously…$10million not to mention asking for a paternity test for her 2-month old baby, Ella (she says Haynesworth is the daddy). From the very beginning Hayneworth’s lawyer Brett Kimmel called the lawsuit dumb, he was quoted as saying: “You can’t sue someone for $10 million because he didn’t want to be your boyfriend,” Anyway, a New York state Supreme Court judge told Silvia Mena, not only could she not sue Hanynesworth for emotional distress because he dumped her, but also that the case in question, didn’t belong in a NYC court since their “relationship” transpired in Miami & Tennessee. I don’t think it’s over as of yet, since Mena’s lawyer Sal Strazzullo released the following statement: “The case was dismissed on jurisdictional grounds because he has no ties to New York. We will either seek federal jurisdiction or sue him in Tennessee. There is a separate paternity case filed with the Family Court in New York because the baby is here. Albert has been served with notice that he has to take a paternity test.”

ALL BETTER NOW…
The Game was in full recovery mode after a quick trip to an emergency room, late last week. The West coast rider was hospitalized after a stunt with a guitar during a video shoot. The story goes Game was shooting his video for “Purp & Yellow” along with Snoop Dogg, DJ Skee, Lakers Matt Barnes and Ron Artest. During one of the video scenes, Game smashes a guitar, it just so happens that one of the pieces slashed his finger wide open. He was taken to a local LA area hospital and stitched right up. You can check out the healing finger in these pics from Game & El Debarge’s “Fiat’ commercial… that Game sure is a rider… J

GIRLS…GIRLS…GIRLS…
Well Amber Rose, did nothing to dispel those bi-sexual rumors, while out recently with video vixen Rosa Acosta. Seems while taking a little trip to Beso’s in Hollywierd, the two were filmed playing the kissing game. (One must wonder if this was all PR for Amber’s show, which was filming at the time…sigh) Now I’m all confused since just last week Amber & Wiz Khlalifa were all booed up, in public and on Twitter, peep the tweets… more so Kanye’s “when you kiss her its me you’re tasting” alleged tweet to their tweets…HIGH-LARIOUS, but even more confusing is Wiz is supposed to be dating, Natalie Nunn of BGC, not to mention up until now Amber’s constantly claimed that “just friends” thing…I’m going with uber PR for that reality show of hers “Behind The Shades”. PS…I wonder if it’s even true that Wizzy will be the new face of her sunglasses shop being featured in her reality show…

IN OTHER GIRLS ON GIRLS NEWS…
Was Rihanna being “funny” when she made this claim, that her and Nicki Minaj are nothing more then “sex partners” on the heels of rumors that the two are about to be shacking up together. Allegedly they “fell for each other during the filming of Nicki’s “Fly” videoshoot…

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT…
Everyone’s still trying to find out what made Usher behave like this at his OMG tour stop in Germany:

Word is Usher was drinking among other things and was not looking or sounding good…Ushers management said the singer fell ill… while those in attendance claim, Usher sang “wrong and crooked”, interrupted songs and gave an excuse for the cancellation of the previous days concert. It got so bad that the sold-out crowd started booing him L According to eyes on the scene, Usher sat down and put his head on the microphone, sung for another few seconds, then abruptly left the stage. Next thing anyone knows, the lights are turned on and the concert was over…Get better Mr. Raymond….

IT’S OVER NOW….
Kevin Hart has officially filed for divorce from his wife of 8 years, Torrei Hart. Friends say the couple seems so happy on the outside, but apparently that wasn’t the case at all, since Kevin, cited irreconcilable differences in his divorce papers. The comedian is seeking joint custody of their kids, 5 year old, Heavenly and 3 year old, Hendricks. On the juicer side, KeVs requested that Torrei be barred from taking his kids out of state and be denied spousal support. (I wonder if she cheated because that seems major) Guess that explains Kevin’s recent outing to a Lakers game with a chica that was not wifey…and for those just curious…

I NEED LOVE…. (CUES LL)
Shout out to Tocarra Jones, who’s next up to bat in season 2 of ‘Donald Trump’s “The Ultimate Merger.’ She’ll be looking for love via TV ONE, summer of this year… tell me how that works out for you…

SAD TO SAY IT…
Sad to say, what was thought to be just rumors is true, Etta James who was already battling Alzheimer’s disease, has now added leukemia, a blood infection and MRSA to her growing list of health woes. Family members say the Blues great now needs help eating, dressing and with her personal hygiene. Her sons have power of attorney over her estate and finances, but recently Etta’s husband of 41 years is now seeking to have power of attorney…sigh at all this drama over $$$ and not over what in the best interest of Etta… I’ll keep that in prayer and keep you of course posted!

SOMEBODY NEEDS A WATCH…
Ummmm what the hell Lauryn, for the second time I’m told of Ms. Hill showing up to a sold out show 3 HOURS LATE. She was slated to hit the stage at 9pm and didn’t grace the crowd with her presence until 12midnight. According to those in attendance at ATL’s Center Stage, they waited for hours for what turned out to be an unimpressive, downright disappointing show. In what’s becoming her norm, she hit the stage and made the announcement she was sick and tired of “playing the same music night after night and had something different in store for them, with that said she had her band speed up the music, which left everyone in attendance in the dark. Numerous times Ms. Hill asked for the crowd to sing along but they couldn’t, eyes on the scene said the band was too loud, plus the speeded up songs, made her hits damn near unrecognizable. Needless too say, concertgoers booed the singer before simply walking out on the show. Oh Lauryn…

TED GATE…
The man with the golden voice has checked in to Origins Recovery Center in South Texas, sources say the center had to add additional screen paneling to block the paparazzi. Now with the average 3 month stay at Origins running around $49,000…the question is who’s footing Williams’ trip to rehab since word on the street is its all-expenses paid…but not out of his pocket…

SOMEONES GOT SENSE…
Amber Portwood and ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley will have to wait a little longer to have their ‘no contact’ order ended. The Indiana judge in overseeing their case went on record, saying he believes its best for everyone involved if the on/off couple needs to spend time apart for right now. Good sense the order was only put in place last month, I agree with the judge’s denial.

GUILTY AS CHARGED…OR MAYBE NOT…
Ex-Bad Boy member G. Dep is facing a murder charge after walking into a police station and confessing to a 1993 murder case. The rapper pleaded not guilty to charges including murder and manslaughter, regarding the shooting of John Henkel. (If you’re curious about his plea, I was told defendants generally plead not guilty early in their cases, even if they’ve confessed, to allow evidence-gathering, legal arguments and any plea negotiations to proceed) Good luck G!

EQUAL RIGHTS….
So while everyone else was staring at the pink elephant in the room. BET co-founder Sheila Johnson gave her take on Oprah’s OWN network ad its lack of diversity, specifically Black faces. According to Shelia: “The only advice that I say, let’s open up your circle a little bit more. You know, we love the Dr. Phils. We love the Suze Ormans. Let’s open up. There are other people. And there are also African-American experts out there that I think she should start bringing on her show that can reach even a wider audience.”When asked if she thought the, “whiteness on the programming and lack of diversity is a bit confusing to some Oprah fans: “No and Yes, I think she really should do that and not be afraid to do it. There are really a lot of great experts out there that really know the businesses at hand. And I’d like to see her open up her circle to them…” Well, what do you think of Oprah’s OWN network, could it use a splash of color?

HOWS THAT FOR THROAT ACTION…
Kim Kardashian showed fans in Las Vegas, she’s more then talk. Rumor has it she debuted her fist official single over the weekend…so what do you think?

WHERE’S THE BEEF…
Didn’t he just owe some money on something else… or is this back in the news because it’s tax time… either way Swizz Beatz owes Uncle Sam $2.6 million in back taxes, that’s including the $1.2 million owed from last year…well that’s not fancy at all…

OOOOH I’M TELLING…
Remember when Lil Kim partnered up with her cousin Katrise Jones to open up “Salon SeSwa” in Charlotte, NC. Well what if I told you rumor has it, that the salon is not only $60, 000 in debt but owes back rent as well as back pay to employees who claim they were paid with bad checks. Seems Katrise Jones who co-owns the salon, is behind on her house mortgage and Range Rover payments to the tune of $15,000, which is also the amount she’s supposedly passed in bad checks… SMH…
