A mother or a motherland? Madonna and Angelina Jolie

Via CNN

“What a choice to make: a heritage or a home. African orphans need and want parents. Well-known White Americans — Angelina Jolie and Madonna — are looking to adopt. But the way those celebrities are adding to their families raises an interesting question: Is it OK for white families to raise African children? And if it is, at what cost to those orphans’ identities?”

How do you feel about Madonna and Angelinia Jolie being mothers to African children? I think there are sound arguments on both sides of the issue. Shoot your comments, we want to hear what you have to say.

De Beers Hating on New ‘Blood Diamond’s’ Movie

Via LA Times:

‘”Blood Diamond,” Ed Zwick’s film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou and Jennifer Connelly, doesn’t open until Dec. 15, but it’s already getting more free publicity than Warner Bros. could have dreamed of. Set in the late ’90s when rebel militias seized control of Sierra Leone’s diamond mines, selling rough gems to buy weapons they used to slaughter and mutilate many thousands of innocent people, “Blood Diamond” tells a fictional tale of two South Africans, a white mercenary and a black fisherman, who find a rare pink diamond.But even two months before its release the film has spurred talk that it could turn consumers off to buying diamonds for fear their money would be supporting murderers.

De Beers, the international diamond cartel that controls the majority of the world’s diamonds, has gone on the offensive to try to distance the industry from the history depicted in the film. But according to Ken Sunshine, Leonardo DiCaprio’s publicist, those connected with the movie feel the stepped-up public relations efforts have backfired for De Beers.

“I hope they keep on publicizing the controversies and our ‘Blood Diamond’ movie,” Sunshine said…..

SMH at corporates trying to conceal the truth. I wouldn’t expect any rappers to stop blinging anytime though. Looks like a solid flick.

DMX being Sued by Baby Mama Over "She Raped Me" Comment in S2S

Via New York Daily News

DMX baby mama Monique Wayne is suing him for defamation. The rapper told Sister 2 Sister magazine that their child, Javon Micai Wayne, was conceived when “she raped me. … Because when I sleep my ‘man’ be out.” Wayne denied the allegation in a lawsuit filed yesterday in Maryland. She’s seeking $2 million plus attorney’s fees

SMH@”My Man be Out”. Stay off the rocks X and trouble will stop following you. Monique, on top on some fat child support checks coming, may get a nice little defemation bonus from a favorable judgement.

Chante Moore and Kenny Lattimore Still Going Strong

Posted by Bossip Staff

After scooping up Chante Moore from Kadeem Hardison(Different World, they have a daughter together), Kenny Lattimore is still going strong with his wife. Nice looking couple, they both seem like hopeless romantics. One of the more tame and sane looking couples around.

The husband-wife duo performed at the Groovevolt.com Presents Kenny Lattimore and Chante Featuring Jeremiah which was sponsored by Azzure and Hypnotic in NYC last night. Taking it back with the Love’s Taken Over video, they don’t make R&B like they used to. This garden variety-cookie cutter stuff just doesn’t cut it.

Negro Please: Andre 3000: ‘Prince Charles is my style icon’

Via Yahoo News:

Outkast star Andre ‘3000’ Benjamin looks to Prince Charles for fashion ideas, and is a huge fan for the royal’s dapper sense of style. The Hey Ya! rapper is well known for his quirky dress sense, and is renowned for mixing fashionable streetwear with high end tailoring. But few of his fans could have realised the lofty source of his inspiration.

He says, “It’s good to look different. To experiment. I like to take people by surprise. My style icon is Prince Charles. I like the way he wears his suits, and he has great overcoats and good buttoning.”

Note to Andre 3000: It’s also good to be different without trying to be different.

Snoop Explains the Educational Value of Crippin

Posted by Bossip Staff

In an interview with AllHipHop.com, Snoop Dogg explains why he promotes Crippin including the positive side of Crippin:

I’m just tellin’ you if you’re Crippin’, you know what comes with the territory. But you don’t see me on a poster sayin, “Uncle Snoop Dogg wants you in this here Crippin’,” like Uncle Sam. This is what I am. I’m not tellin’ you to do it, but I’m sayin’ if you do do it, these are the consequences. This is what you gotta got through. This is what I went through. I make it look easy, but it ain’t easy. I had to fight a murder case. I had to fight my homies. I had to fight Mexicans, Blacks, Whites, all kinda s**t comin’ up. I didn’t get these scars on my face from just rippin’ and runnin’ down the street. That’s real s**t I had to go through.

But at the same time, when you realize what’s right and what’s wrong you have to say as a man, “I want to do what’s right.” What’s right is to educate and to elevate. I could waste a lot of time and just put out negative music and n***as would do what I say ‘cause I’m Snoop-mothaf**kin’-Dogg. King of this Crippin’, King of whatever the f**k I want to. I could be the king of New York right now if I wanted to be. Who is it, Jay-Z and 50, that’s it? Them my lil’ homeboys. If you wanna keep it real, I could be the King of mothaf**kin’ New York and mash on n***as. But I got my hand out in peace and love because I’m a grown man and I understand that when I make peace with Jay-Z and make peace with 50 and I sincerely love them and treat them with respect and love all their homeboys, I get more out of it. The game expands more as opposed to me sayin, “I’m riding with the mothaf**kin’ West Coast, n***a. F**k y’all n***as. It is what it is.” I been on that page before. I ain’t get far. When I was on Death Row, I was on that page. It was, “F**k everybody!” And nobody wanted to see me or none of the people I was moving with, and I didn’t like that. Because that’s the reputation I was trying to get rid of as a youngster, so why would I bring that in as a musician; as a businessman. So you know, don’t be offended by this Crippin’, because this Crippin’ is very educational. This is a man trying to save lives as opposed to take lives.

Negro are you crazy? No matter how you twist it, it is GANG BANGING— there will never be any thing good about that.

Michelle Williams and Cleveland Browns Gary Baxter Dating

Via Jawn Murray at BV:

“Singer Michelle Williams, 26, of Destiny’s Child is dating Cleveland Browns cornerback Gary Baxter, 27. The two have been dating for several months and Williams is often spotted in the game box cheering on her beau and his team. Baxter has been sidelined this season after straining his pectoral muscle. Williams, fresh off an appearance on ‘Celebrity Duets,’ is currently in the studio readying her third solo album. This time, in lieu of singing gospel, Williams is recording an R&B album.”

Last year Baxter signed a six-year $30 million contract with the Browns that included a $10.5 million signing bonus. We will give this relationship a couple more weeks.
