When I posted the "Window Seat" video the other day I did NOT know that it was shot in a public area. I thought it was done on a closed set and the people around agreed to seeing Erykah's personal parts. I never would have thought this chic was just running through the street stripping all willy-nilly, SMH! I wonder how she would have felt if somebody was undressing in front of little Mars, Seven and Puma (yes those are her kids names). People are doing way too much these days.

Honestly, I slick like the song (or at least I like PARTS of the song LOL). Im not sure about the video. It was just too much going on with all the lights and split screens and ish. I liked the part where Usher was dancing in front of the shadows tho. However, I must point out his Ricky Martin sway towards the end of the song. NOT a good look Ush LOL. What do y'all think about the video.
BTW... his CD "Raymond vs. Raymond" is out today!
Twitter was buzzin yesterday after Kat Stacks (the 2010 Superhead) released a video giving out phone numbers of several men in the industry that she claims to have had sex with. Check the videos below.
Did that bish say "keep sending the fan mail"? OMG.... this ish here is ridiculous!
It's obvious that she doesnt realize that while she's trying to destroy other peoples characters, she's the one that looks like a dumb azz slut. I dont believe this sh*t and I better not purchase a postcard that she wrote LOL. I seriously hate to see females doing stuff like this. I mean really, does she think its cute? I was literally just sitting here in complete disbelief. She sounds and looks extremly ignorant... Whewwww, SMH at what the world is coming to.
Latin artist Ricky Martin took to his personal website yesterday to tell the world his big secret (side eye). He's GAY! Rickey stated "At this moment I’m feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share."
Way to go Ricky!! It's about time that he told the truth because honestly, that damn closet door was made of glass anyways and we could all see right through it LOL. Be you honey, nobody here can judge you.
So, who didnt know this was a homosexual?!!

A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And thisis something worth celebrating.
For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that's the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It's my vice. The music, the lights and the roar of the audience are elements that make me feel capable of anything. This rush of adrenaline is incredibly addictive. I don't ever want to stop feeling these emotions. But it is serenity that brings me to where I'm at right now. An amazing emotional place of comprehension, reflection and enlightenment. At this moment I'm feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share.
Many people told me: "Ricky it's not important", "it's not worth it", "all the years you've worked and everything you've built will collapse", "many people in the world are not ready to accept your truth, your reality, your nature". Because all this advice came from people who I love dearly, I decided to move on with my life not sharing with the world my entire truth. Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions.
If someone asked me today, "Ricky, what are you afraid of?" I would answer "the blood that runs through the streets of countries at war...child slavery, terrorism...the cynicism of some people in positions of power, the misinterpretation of faith." But fear of my truth? Not at all! On the contrary, It fills me with strength and courage. This is just what I need especially now that I am the father of two beautiful boys that are so full of light and who with their outlook teach me new things every day. To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with. Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment.
These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn't even know existed.
What will happen from now on? It doesn't matter. I can only focus on what's happening to me in this moment. The word "happiness" takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution.
I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.
The Joe Biden ish was HILARIOUS ROFL...
This fool said Beyonce is gonna look like Aretha, HAAAAAAAAA!!
I too was wondering how in the hell Columbus just walked clean off the stage LMAO.
That Latin man fell hard as hell, I can NOT stop laughing LMAO.
This got dang Ed Lover is ignant!! LMAO And yes, #deathtothelacefront

Rasheeda has been shooting videos left and right for her Boss Bi*tch Music mixtape album. Check out 2 new videos.
"Dont Let Him Go" Ft. Cherish
I havent seen the twins from Cherish in a while, didn't they look cute?!
"I Wanna Rock"
I like Rasheeda's music and I love seeing her doing it on her own.
Okay, yea... it was definitely a message in the video but WHY in the hell did she have to get tit-twat naked to convey it? I dig Erykah and always have, but this was most def a bit much for me. Listen closely to what she says at the end after she's shot.
"They play it safe, are quick to assisnate what they do not understand. They move in packs, injesting more and more fear with every act of hate on one another. They feel most comfortable in groups, less guilt to swallow. They are us, this is what we have become. Afraid to respect the individual. A single person or event or circumstance can move one to change, to love ourself, to evolve." Deep video, I would have much rather she kept her clothes on tho #justsaying.
Side note: DAMN ERYKAH IS THICK LOL!!!
We've all gone down at least once. Get your mind out the gutter, I mean gone down as in fallen down ;-). Well, Fergie took a tumble while performing in Kansas City last week. Check the video.
HAAAAAAAAAAA, that ish was FUNNY!! She fell hard as HELL! You could hear it over the music and everything LOL. Thats okay Fergie, you're still fly.

Snooping... this can be a big issue in some relationships. Tyra did a show about this one time and of course, the snoopers were the women LOL. Now, I HAD to laugh at that one cuz baby, I used to be Snoop Doggy Dog back in the day. For example.. When I was wit my ex we took a trip to ATL. It was actually me and my girls but he rode down with us to go chill with his cousin. So we're all on the road tripping and having a good time, until we stop for gas. He goes in the gas station to get some snacks and I immediately tell the girls "let me know when he's coming out" ROFL (it's funny just thinking about it). So I proceed to go through the cell phone.. BAM, I'm now MAD AS HELL!! He gets in the car and I'm hot as fish grease but guess what... I CAN'T SAY SH*T cuz I shouldn't have been in the phone in the first place. Now I gotta ride another 3 hours wit this mofo and I'm ready to slap fire from him, SMH.
Check MORE DISH for the rest
As women, we are just naturally nosey (you know it's true LOL). But honey, that snooping will get yo feelings H-U-R-T and I mean BAD. On the show, Tyra kept suggesting that the women had "insecurity issues". Give me a break Tyra, that's not always the case. Personally, when I start dealing with a guy I have no reason not to trust him and he will have my trust until he does something to mess that up (so please believe I checked that phone for a reason back in the dayLOL). But IF/WHEN a guy messes up with me, its a wrappioli. From that point on, anything he says I'm gonna try and figure out if it's a lie. Maybe that's wrong, but hell..... He brought it on himself. With that said, I'm totally different now that I've become a grown woman. I don't go looking for things because when you do more than likely you're just going to find something that's goin to piss you off, even if its not really something for you to be pissed off about. Looking for stuff is usually a sure fire way to get yo feelings hurt and possibly get yourself locked the hell up ROFL. Now don't get it twisted.... If some information comes to you or is laid out for all to see, then feel free to say whatever the hell you want about the situation. My suggestion ladies (and gentlemen), stay out ya folks sh*t!! Your thoughts please.
M-Town stand up!! K.Michelle, the new artist on Jive is shooting her very first video today for her single "Falling". It's a beautiful song and I'm sure the video will be great. Kay is a character at heart so whatever they ask her to portray I'm sure she'll pull it off, LOL. Check her out performing the song.
Check out some behind the scenes footage from todays shoot
Sometimes I think I'm a little too sensitive, or maybe it's just that I truly love seeing people shine. I'm so proud of her, she's been doing this for a while and shes really doing her thing. As you heard, the girl can BLOW. I'm just listening, rocking and smiling. You betta werk Kay!! Y'all know the video will be posted as soon as its available. If you missed my interviews with her you can check MORE DISH to watch and learn more about her.
And the UNCUT clip LOL
CONGRATS AGAIN KAY!!!
I've never heard this song before, but "Nothing" is from the "Why Did I Get Married Too" soundtrack. J.D. is behind the scenes with he ex boo (I slick think they are still boos) Janet, check it out.
Janet has always been such a pretty girl, but more importantly she seems to have a beautiful spirit. I was tripping when she ate that orange and started dancing, I do the exact same thing when I eat. That's some inner fat girl ish LOL. Check MORE DISH to hear the full song. BTW, I hate that freakin wig, me no likey.
Tip has finally left the half way house that he was sentenced to after being released from the Forest City, Arkansas prison in December. While he can return home to his lil mama, Tiny and their children he does still have a curfew (ain't that some BS?). He has to be in the house by 11 p.m. and when he is working he can bust a move and stay out until 1 a.m. He'll also be on probation for the next 3 years. I believe he's changed and I honestly don't think we'll have to worry about him doing any more dumb ish.
Now that he's REALLY back, I'm sure he's about to shut some ish down again. WELCOME HOME TIP!!! BTW, Tiny announced on Twitter yesterday that her honey was officially on Twitter. Follow him @Tip...
I just thought it was apprpriate to add this song ;-)
Just cuz this mf had me at my desk rocking and LITERALLY LMAO, I decided to share. Please check this video out HAAA!!!

Y'all know I love me some Gabby (Gabrielle Union) right? Well she hit up the Jimmy Kimmel Show rocking a new hair color (which I love), acting silly and of course talking about her new show "Flash Forward". Gabby is always a joy in her interviews, but this is the first time I've ever heard her speak on her relationship with Dwayne Wade. Check out the videos below.
Awwwww, I love black love ;-)!
I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it LOL. It was a cool video tho. Did you y'all catch Ciara's cameo? I almost think I saw Jamie Foxx too, I could be wrong tho. What do you guys think about it?
Side note: The first chick that came out behind Nicki at the beginning (and at the 5:14 mark) is from Memphis. I love to see Memphis people doing the damn thang, work it Brandy!
Diva Dish would like to congratulate Mickey "Memphitz" Wright!!! Today he'll be receiving the key to our/his city. Memphitz grew up in Memphis, TN. (with a bomb azz family might I add LOL) and is now the Vice President of A&R at Jive Records as well as the CEO of Hitz Committe Records. Not only is he holding it down in the office, Memph is also the host of BET's show "The Deal." He's recently been linked to Ms. Toya Carter in the media. You never know, he might be getting the key to the city and the key to somebody's heart. ;-)
I'm SO VERY proud of him and his accomplishments! You see the motto, "DO WORK"!!!

Rumors have been flying for months about ATL housewife Kim Zolciak's relationship with DJ Tracy Young, but personally I never believe what some websites say so I just brushed it off. No more brushing it off cuz Kim has finally admitted to being bisexual and talks about her relationship with DJ Tracy, check the video.
Well, I guess there is no more Big Poppa. Kim now has herself a Big Mama, LOL! I wonder if they'll showcase this on season 3 of ATL Housewifes.
Kim is saying that she and DJ Tracy Young are no longer an item. Although she and Tracey were in a relationship, Kim says she is now back with Big Poppa. *kanye shrug*
First Monica and Rocko, now Eva and Lance. These breakups in 2010 are really starting to get to me, SMH. Essence broke the story yesterday when they released a statement from the couple's representatives.
"Lance Gross and Eva Marcille have mutually decided to end their relationship. The split is completely amicable," the statement reads."
Ughhhh, I really liked these two together. They made such a beautiful couple, and now its over. I wonder what happened because they were due to wed in July. Check them out in this video from their happier days. They looked so cute and happy together :-(
Oh well, sad situation but it is what it is. I know a lot of men and women in the industry aren't upset cuz its now two beautiful individuals back on the market.
Got damn that Lance Gross is FINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

LOVES those booties!!!
If you didn't get your copy, you might be short for a minute. The stores were selling out like crazy yesterday. When I went to get mine I saw that there weren't many left so I went ahead and picked up a copy for my sister (cuz I was NOT sharing LOL). I've heard many people say "man I hope Monica doesn't disappoint us." If you haven't heard it, let me tell ya..... SHE BROUGHT IT!! I'm LOVING the entire CD!!! Congrats Monica, you have a banger honey and you'll be Platinum soon!!
Monica also held an instore "Meet and Greet" yesterday at DTLR in Atlanta. My cousin that lives in ATL says she passed by DTLR and the line was ridiculous. Monica prides herself on never "leaving her fans hanging", she had to leave and head to NYC so she's doing the meet and greet all over again on Thursday for the fans, gotta love her!
She always has them looking so cute... They were too clean on the back of the album cover ;-)
Mommy was there too
As if I haven't said it enough.... GO GET THE ALBUM!!

WOW, I seriously can't believe Matthew Knowles was this stupid. According to TMZ, Beyonce and Solange have a new baby brother. The paternity test for Matthew Knowles and baby Nixon supposedly came back showing that Matthew is the father. Ok so sure, I know men cheat. Personally, I think most (if not all) men will cheat if presented with the opportunity. But what I don't get is how in the hell they are retarded enough to leave little ones behind. WHO DOES THAT? The child's mother filed a paternity suite back in October and has been receiving $8,200 a month in child support since then. $8,200 BEFORE THE DAMN TEST?! Can you imagine what she's about to get now that they have confirmed paternity. SMH, slap yourself Matthew.

When Monica went to Twitter to confirm the internet stories of her breakup with her fiance' Rocko, many people wondered why. She spoke to VIBE about the breakup and why she chose to tell the world through Twitter. Check out what she had to say below.
“I chose Twitter as a forum to say what I felt at that time because there was no other way for me to say it once,” Monica told VIBE. “Had I been on radio, had I been interviewed, it would’ve been over and over again. That was just a quick way to say, ‘I know what’s taking place on the Web sites. I want you to know that I’m okay.’ But it really is a private matter. You just lose the privacy once you become an artist. So I'm not upset about it in any way.”
Prior to the announcement, rumors floated that Rocko had been cheating on the singer, 29, who said she was aware of all the hearsay and felt confused with what was happening.
“It was a situation I didn’t ask to be in, so to speak. Once something is put up on a Web site and things about your personal life are spread all around, it’s unfortunate,” said Monica. “I don’t even know specifically who they spoke to, but I do know that I never felt so… I guess the word would be confused more than anything else. If you go to sleep and you wake up and you see something for the first time, it’s a little scary, you know. I’m too grown now to go investigating leads. The reality is that I have to play my position as their mom and do what it is that’s best for me.”

“When I met him, I was only 19 years old and the good definitely outweighed the bad over the years so we don’t have any hard feelings towards one another,” said Monica. “Anything that involves children is gonna be more emotional. I think that’s the area that makes it more difficult… My priority is to make sure that whatever is done is best for them. I’m secondary in the picture and so is their dad and we have a close bond for over a decade. So regardless of what takes place in the media, there’s still certain things that will happen amongst the four of us for the rest of our lives and that’s just never gonna change.”
I still hate that this happened, SMH. Like she said, it's always much harder when there are children involved. It's easy to let someone go when there is nothing holding them there, but they will forever be in each others lives since they have the boys. I'm sure whatever the outcome Monica will remain the wonderful mother shes always been. BTW, her album drops tomorrow y'all so be sure to go get it.
Tiger gave his first interview since all his trolips ratted his azz out. He gave ESPN 5 minutes to ask whatever they wanted, check it out.
Okay forreal, leave Tiger's azz the hell alone LOL, it's over. But am I the only one that LOL when dude asked him "how well does the world know you now?" I hollaed, cuz we sure as hell do know a lot more. I really could have gone without knowing he tries to piss on people tho. SMH
