Jessica Simpson On Oprah: Talks John Mayer; Talks “Mom” Jeans

Posted by on Mar 4, 2010 in Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity Quotes, TV Shows | Comments Off

John Mayer in the now infamous Playboy interview reveals some interesting things about Jessica Simpson behind close doors. The interview was controversial for a number of reasons, but the attack on Jessica Simpson was very personal; comparing their sex life to crack cocaine, and calling her his “sexual napalm”.

Watch the video to see what she says about John Mayer. I don’t think she stands up for herself enough.

“It made me so sad and it was really discouraging, because that’s not the John that I knew,” she said. “I hope he gets his life together.”

Simpson said that while Mayer did apologize to her after the interview was published, she has yet to forgive him.

“I don’t accept it,” she said. “I don’t resent him, I’m just gonna let that go. That part of my life is over.” {Source}

Alicia Keys Says “I’ve Been Lucky With Love”; Does That Include Swizz Beatz?

Alicia keys Swizz Beatz holding hands beach Hawaii Alicia Keys Says Ive Been Lucky With Love; Does That Include Swizz Beatz?By lucky, I guess she means that the married man (Swizz Beatz) chose her over his wife (Mashonda). I guess when you’re in love, you just don’t think about the bad stuff, or the people you left hurt. If Alicia Keys has been lucky in love, then I guess Mashonda has been cursed.

In a recent interview Alicia Keys discussed how lucky she has been in the love game, and always goes after the “strong” and “confident” man:

I’ve never dated a ton of people, I’ve always been a one-guy kind of girl, but I have to say that I’ve always been lucky with love, blessed with it. Overall I haven’t had any terrible relationships – apart from a couple of little stupid ones when I was younger, but at that age you kinda can’t help it.But I’ve always had really great guys in my life, you know? They’ve been very stable men as well. I need a guy who is strong-minded, not intimidated by me – I don’t like those kind of guys.

Did she just say her boyfriends have always been stable men? I guess she discussing her past relationships, and not her current one. Not sure what’s stable about a man who cheated on his wife, divorced her to be with his mistress. By mistress, I mean anyone who’s not married to the man, yet, he’s still a married man.

In Defense Of John Mayer; N-Word & Black Women In Playboy Interview

Posted by on Feb 10, 2010 in Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity Quotes | 3 comments

mayer In Defense Of John Mayer; N Word & Black Women In Playboy InterviewSo twitter has gone crazy with people calling John Mayer a racist because he used the “n-word”. He didn’t call anyone the “n-word”, he used the word to describe the absurdity of the words “hood pass”. Today, he is the poster boy for racism, and if you don’t see him as a racist, then there must be something wrong with you. There is something clearly wrong with me because I don’t see it as racist, offensive maybe. So here is what he said in a Playboy Interview regarding black women, and the words “hood pass”:

Do black women throw themselves at you?

I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.

On black people loving him:

MAYER: Someone asked me the other day, “What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, “I can’t really have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.’”

I guess there is something wrong with me, because I am not taking the bait. I appreciate his remarks because it’s a great opportunity to prove we are not in a post-racial era where people can freely talk about race. I also appreciate it because it shows the hypocrisy of the word. Are his words offensive, sure it can be, but are they racist, I guess it depends on your definition.

If your definition is that anyone who uses the “n-word” is racist, then I guess he is. But, if you’re asking was his intent or meaning of the words racist, then my answer is NO! I guess when David Chapelle does it in a skit, it’s just pure comedy, but when John Mayer does in a playboy interview, it’s seriously outrageous.

BTW, he issued this apology. Did he really need to apologize?

I am sorry that I used the word. And it’s a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there’s no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged. And while I’m using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it’s time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews…It started as an attempt to not let the waves of criticism get to me, but it’s gotten out of hand and I’ve created somewhat of a monster.

(Video) Gabourey Sidibe Mom Singing For Money In The Subway

Posted by on Feb 9, 2010 in Celebrity Family, Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity News | Comments Off

Gabourey Sidibe is making her way on red carpet events, while her mother, Alice Tan Ridley is singing in subways for money three days a week. Quite a contrast! Ms. Ridley’s voice is what actually lead to Gabby playing the part of Precious. Read the details below:

When asked why she is working in the subway now that her daughter is break-through success, Ms. Ridley simple said:

“My name is not on Gabby’s paycheck. For a while, I was teaching and doing the singing, burning the candle at both ends to support my family.”

She eventually made subway singing a full-time job. “When I come home at the end of the day, I have enough to pay my bills and feed my kids,” she said.

“People always say, ‘Why don’t you sing in clubs?’ I tell ‘em, ‘This is my club.’ ”

Her singing helped pave the way for her daughter’s breakout in “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.”

Four years ago, they asked me to play the part of the mother,” Ridley said. “But being a mom and teacher, I just couldn’t play that part. It was just too hard. …I read the book, and I gave it to Gabby. Her friends encouraged her to try out for ‘Precious,’ and she got it,” she added. {Source}

Melanie Brown: Nearly 3 Years Later Eddie Murphy Still Hasn’t Seen His Daughter Angel Iris

Posted by on Feb 8, 2010 in Celebrity Beef, Celebrity Exes, Celebrity Family, Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity Magazine | 9 comments

Melanie Brown did an interview with OK! Magazine, where she talks about her family, and more importantly Eddie Murphy and his relationship with his daughter. Black Celebrity Kids has the scoop and the pictures.

On whether or not Eddie Murphy plays a role in Angel’s life:

“No. I have full custody of Angel, and that’s about it. He doesn’t want to see her. That’s just the way it is. But Angel-she calls Stephen daddy. her sister’s her sister, not her half sister. She’s very content. She doesn’t know any different.”

On whether or not Eddie pays child support:

“All that’s legal stuff that i don’t even really care to talk about. Those are personal and legal matters. Everything is what it is. And Angel’s a very happy kid.”

Let me just say, it’s sad that Eddie Murphy refuses to see his child because he felt he was tricked into having a baby. His daughter, Angel Iris, has nothing to do with how she was conceived. Taking it out on the child, shows his level of maturity.

I also have a hard time understanding this baby’s hairstyle…

Celebrity Fit Club: Kevine Federline Thought Fat Tabloid Picture Was Altered

Posted by on Feb 5, 2010 in Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity News, TV Shows | 1 comment

Kevin Federline and ex-girlfriend/baby mama, Shar Jackson will be appearing on Celebrity Fit Club together. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, K-fed blames his wait gain on the stress of his highly publicized divorce from pop singer, Brittney Spears, and his old age. The blogs nick-named him K-fat after a tabloid picture surfaced showing how much weight he had gained. (Don’t forget Bobby Brown will also be on the show, too)

“I went through a lot of things and I definitely say that those things contributed to me gaining weight for sure,” says Federline, referring to all the media scrutiny he underwent as a result of his much-publicized split from ex-wife Britney Spears.

“When I saw this picture, I did not think that I was that big,” he said. “I thought it was Photoshopped. You know? And, then I realized that I was just letting myself go.”

“There is a little bit of stuff you will hear between me and Shar,” he says, “but, I mean, I really went there focused on my weight and my health for the sake of me and my family.”

Celebrity Fit Club Shar Jackson Tanisha thomas K Fed Celebrity Fit Club: Kevine Federline Thought Fat Tabloid Picture Was Altered

I also noticed that people were shocked by how much weight Shar Jackson gained on the show. In real life Shar Jackson only gained 30 pounds. Certainly a lot of weight for her frame, but not enough for the obese comments I read on twitter. Then it hit me that they are confusing Shar Jackson with Tanisha Thomas of the Bad Girls Club, who is also appearing on this season of Celebrity Fit Club.
