Generations of Hip Hop

Shay and Pharrell of N.E.R.D., old head Grandmaster Flash, Nas and Buckshot attended a press conference in NYC yesterday. Sounds interesting, but the pressing question here is what is really good with Nas and Kelis? We’re starting to worry about them, they haven’t been seen together in a minute. No comment on Pharrell’s steez…

Tyler Perry is Doing it BIG

Posted by Bossip Staff

Madea’s alter ego, Tyler Perry, just made Oprah cry by becoming the first African-American person in history to own a major TV and film studio.

History was made Saturday night, when Tyler Perry became the first African-American ever to launch his own major TV and film studio. [...]A New Orleans native with a troubled childhood, Perry, 39, credited all of his guests with inspiring his life. Of Winfrey, who attended the celebration with longtime beau Stedman Graham and best friend Gayle King, Perry said, “She owns her life. I am learning that. I never would have shown this to people a few years ago. I was embarrassed by the success.” At one point, Perry unveiled a special surprise for veteran trailblazers Poitier, Dee and Tyson: each now has a soundstage named after him and her. “Is this my wall?” joked Poitier – as Winfrey dissolved into tears.

Say what you want about Madea being a minstrel act, but Tyler Perry’s got them Hollyweird folk eating out of palm of his hands.

Another Day, Another Tell-All

Posted by Bossip Staff

This time the “Tell-All” is about MiMi:

Mariah Carey wants to quash parts of an explosive tell-all being penned by her former record producer Damion “Damizza” Young, who says he’ll bare details of the “intense four-year personal relationship” they shared and “worked diligently to disguise from the world’s press.” Young tell us the songbird’s lawyer Sonya Guardo, who works with powerhouse celebrity attorney Allen Grubman, fired off a letter reminding him of a confidentiality agreement to steer clear of blabbing any sensitive information about Carey in his upcoming book, “Guilty by Association.”

We know Mariah’s crazy ass has everyone, down to the housekeepers signing confidentiality agreement to hide all of her random acts of foolishness, so this dude’s book most likely won’t hit the shelves. However, it would probably make an interesting read.

Quote of the Day

Posted by Bossip Staff

Oprah Barack Obama

Many were amazed by Barack Obama’s speech last night, Oprah especially:

“I cried my eyelashes off,” she said in the bowels of Invesco Field, moments after Obama accepted the nomination for president before an estimated 84,000 people. “I think it’s the most powerful thing I have ever experienced,” she added, calling Obama’s words “transcendent.” On the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a Dream Speech,” Winfrey compared Obama’s words to those of the civil-rights leader, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

“He’s not an African-American candidate,” she said. “He’s a candidate for Americans.” Winfrey threw her support behind Obama early — even before the Democratic primaries got under way last year. She’s stayed active since, hosting rallies and fundraisers that even Obama has acknowledged have given him a boost.

Estelle on Groupie Game

Posted by Bossip Staff

Estelle discusses groupies, he-hoes, and not sleeping with John Legend:

“Stop insulting me with that. It’s like I couldn’t have got where I am because I do good work? You lot have seen me hustle and struggle, so if someone comes along and is appreciative of my talent, guy or girl… I’m supposed to sleep with them? We’re good friends and that’s as far as it goes. Have respect for me and for him because, obviously, he wouldn’t have signed me if I was sleeping with him. Not a lot of groupies get signed. To me that’s borderline disrespectful. He appreciates my talent.”

She reveals she gets male groupies she calls ‘He-Hoes’. She laughed: “They’ll come out and say, ‘Yeah babe I really respect you.’ Then they’re also like, ‘The beautiful Estelle’ and I’m like, ‘Erh what do you want?’ And they’ll go on, ‘I have seen you a lot…’ and I’m like, ‘Because I’m a rapper and a singer and I’m on TV?’ “It’s funny. I’m like, ‘Yeah cool, nice to meet you. You don’t need my number. You really don’t. I don’t have a UK phone. I don’t live here anyway.’”

Who ever said she was sleeping with John Legend?? We all know how he gets down...
