Former American Idol loser Corey Clark is now a street vendor, peddling copies of his CD and posters on the streets of L.A.

On Tuesday night, May 23rd, during finale filming of ‘AI’, Clark was a few streets away hawking goods.

Corey, I hope this little venture is lucrative and improves your cash flow for now, but I feel that falafel and corn dogs would sell a whole a lot better.

Semi-Fresh Falafel! Corn Dogs! Corey Clark CD’s! Here!!

No moving on up for you Mr. Jefferson.

This Mr.Jefferson froze $90,000 in $10,000 increments in food containers and aluminum foil and $10,000 is still missing from a $100,000 bribe.

Congressman Jefferson, who represents the great state of Louisana, has been caught on videotape accepting money from the Feds; the bribe money was apparently to secure funds for Nigerian business deals.

You finally found a piece of that pie, now pray it has a file in it.

The legacy of New Orleans has fallen into the hands of mouthy, yet passionate Mayor Ray Nagin once again.

Beating Mitch Landrieu by a 52-48% margin, Nagin will continue to strive and face a long journey of restoring the once thriving commerce of the Big Easy, bringing back the exodus of people displaced by the evil hurricane Katrina.

Charlie Sheen: Lying, Cheating and Racism

By Melanie Woodroffe

1. Lied about knowing Brothel extraordinaire Heidi Fleiss, yet #1 on her speed dial.
(We don’t care about that!)

2. Cheated on various girlfriends and wives, latest being Denise Richards.
(Slept with over 5000+ women, STD central!)

3. Reported as using the “N-word” (as Denise describes)on several occasions.
( Now this is where we draw the line!)

As insipid as this may sound, it requires vilification.

Keep it up Charlie and some “N” is going to crack your head, might be Denise.

Lupe Fiasco is a brilliant guy. Emerging as a HipHop artist without being showy with the glitz and brandishing a “piece”, he is refreshing and uplifting.

For those of you who were skeptics of this skateboarding beat mixer, pull a ‘fakie’ and check out the “Food & Liquor” debut LP, it is ‘sick crazy’.

‘Poser’ he’s not. Check out his video….

Runaway Hedge Fund Manager, Kirk Wright was found in a Miami hotel Thursday; no, not Mexico, Switzerland or the Caymans, but on good old American soil.

$184 million dollars missing, NFL clients P.O.’d and he goes to Miami?

I think hedge hogs are a lot smarter, at least when they hide, they can’t be found that easily!

No thanks
