…”I’m sure there are people who thought it was a mistake to fight the Civil War to its end and to insist that the emancipation of slaves would hold,” Rice said in the new issue of Essence magazine…
…”I resented the notion that the President of the United States, this President of the United States, would somehow decide to let people suffer because they were black,” Rice told the magazine. “I found that to be the most corrosive and outrageous claim that anybody could have made, and it was wholly and totally irresponsible.”…
….”I took a strong stand to get away from Sony Records,” X explained, detailing how he believes the label failed to promote his two most recent releases. “I sold 2 million records on Loud, which was one-tenth of the size of Sony [2000's Loud release Restless has been certified platinum by the RIAA]. Going over to Sony, they can only push my records to gold [500,000 shipped]. And I’m not going to sit here and believe it was the music. It was the people behind the music….
WYCLEF Jean is not a fan of President Bush – or of savoir-faire. The former Fugee went on a drunken tirade Saturday night at Mixx in the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Vegas after performing with Nelly Furtado at Taj. At Mixx, Jean proclaimed, “President Bush needs to smoke marijuana . . . [Bleep] Bush!” He then leapt into the crowd – which started chanting “[Bleep] Bush!” – and proclaiming, “I’m not Diddy, I don’t need no security,” as he pushed back 500-plus people with the mike in one hand and a glass of champagne in the other.

American Idol season one finalist Tamyra Gray married Sam Watters, a songwriter and producer who was in the early ’90s R&B group Color Me Badd, in Capri, Italy, on Saturday, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Gray, 27, and Watters, 36, wed before 45 guests on a cliff overlooking the ocean. After the ceremony, “They walked through the city and townspeople were opening their windows and cheering for them,” Gray’s manager, Lisa Braudé, tells PEOPLE.
The couple have been together for two years. They got engaged on Valentine’s Day when Watters proposed with an antique diamond engagement ring in a platinum setting.

Tyson tells TMZ he’s recently spoken with Oscar winner Jamie Foxx, who is rumored to play The Dynamite Kid in a big screen version of his life. Tyson says he doesn’t understand why Foxx would be interested in portraying the embattled star.
“I don’t … see myself in the perspective that everyone else seems. I think the 40 years of my life have been a waste.”
Awww Mike don’t be so hard on your self I mean you were once the heavy weight champion of the world….. I was trying to think of something else but couldn’t come up with anyhting so you may be right.
Nibblez also gets the boot. Sorry for ruining it for everyone. Looks like “Becky Buckwild” is a certified wigger, you know it is evident early when a girl is acting more ghetto than girls from the CPT and projects. SMH, what set is she throwing up in the pic with pops? The video below may take a sec to load.
LMAO@”good housewife skills”
From PEOPLE (CON’T):
What are the first things you look for? She’s gotta be pretty. Gotta have good brains on her shoulders. And she has to have good housewife skills.
What’s your ideal first date? I’m a Benihana person. Take a walk on the beach, bottle of Moët and some strawberries.
If a woman wants to catch your eye, what should she do? No. 1: Have on some nice clothes. No. 2: Smell good. No. 3: Don’t be obnoxious. No. 4: Have good character….
…”It’s a really tricky situation,” she told us this week, as she test-drove a Mercedes SLK 280. “He is my dearest friend. But I’m not saying it’s romantic. We won’t know what it is till we’re ready. “There’s a wife and children involved,” the single mom went on. “I don’t want to wreck any marriages. But if a marriage is already wrecked, that’s not my fault.” So she and Bobby have been intimate? “It’s none of your business,” she scolded. “I’m still celibate. And if you believe that, I’ll tell you another one.”
“Look,” she said, shifting the Benz into a higher gear, “there are way bigger things in the works than a romance. I’m a businesswoman. Bobby and I are working together on some things.”…
Page Six reports:
ANDRE 3000 sure knows how to treat a lady. The rapper turned actor had been seeing his film manager, the mono-named Eufala, at least until last Monday. Eufala was said to be incensed when Andre showed up late to the premiere of his movie “Idlewild” at Guastavino that night – and then ignored her for DJ Sky Nellor. To make matters worse, he left with Nellor, not Eufala. Watch for a repeat of the drama at the party Jet One Jets president Anthony Ottimo is throwing for Andre, Big Boi and “Idlewild” at the Soho Grand tomorrow.
