Quote of The Day

Posted by Bossip Staff

Barack Obama on smoking weed back in the day:

“I did,” the senator from Illinois said to light applause. “It’s not something I’m proud of. It was a mistake as a young man.” The question was a reference to a line made famous by former President Bill Clinton who, while admitting to trying marijuana, said he did not inhale.

“I never understood that line,” Obama continued. “The point was to inhale. That was the point.”

Republicans are already blasting Obama for setting a bad example for young people. We think someone who tells the truth and doesn’t speak sideways is setting a good example for young people.

Damn, you know some hypocritical politicians are going to play up he smoked rocks back in college. Bossip has his back!

When the Checks Stop Coming In

Posted by Bossip Staff

Marion Jones

The future is not looking bright for former track star Marion Jones:

The world governing body of athletics has handed disgraced sprinter Marion Jones a two-year ban for doping and annulled all her results dating back to September 2000, including her Olympic and world championship titles. The International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) also told Jones to return an estimated $700,000 in prize money and recommended that her United States relay teammates be disqualified and lose their medals from the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Jones retired last month after pleading guilty to lying to federal investigators in 2003 and admitted that she had taken the designer steroid “the clear” from September 2000 to July 2001. Jones won gold medals in the 100 meters, 200 and the 1,600-meter relay in Sydney, as well as bronzes in the 400 relay and long jump. She won the 200 world title in 2001. Jones has returned her five Olympic medals and agreed to forfeit all results dating to Sept. 1, 2000. IAAF spokesman Nick Davies said Jones can’t compete again unless she pays back the approximate $700,000 in prize money. Even though Jones has retired, she is officially suspended until Oct. 7, 2009. Jones would have to give the IAAF 12 months’ notice if she wants to return to competition after the ban, Davies said.

700K in payback dollars might not be that easy to come up with, especially since those Nike checks stopped coming in a while ago.

Beyonce Dancers

Here is a pic of Beyonce’s back up male dancers with their shirts off. Oh wee, if at least one of these dudes are straight, Jay better watch his back. There’s nothing like a blue-collared working man and his chiseled body to turn a woman away from her wealthy significant other with man-titties.

Magic Don Juan James Brown Tomi Rae Brown

Bishop “Magic” Don Juan and James Brown’s widow Tomi Rae Brown are dating and even exchanged rings. Tomi Rae stated:

“I gave him a ring, but it was just a gift. As far as I’m concerned, I’m the Godmother of Soul and I have no intentions of being with anybody else.”

SMH at her claiming the Godmother of Soul status. Poor James will never rest in peace, with children and wives coming out of the woodwork and now this.

She Had These ‘Cute’ Shoes

NeyoHaydenPanettier

Ne-Yo was spotted getting his hand-holding on with lil Diana Ross’s girl, Hayden Panettiere. He explains going out with the young actress:

“Hayden and I just met yesterday. We’ve only known each other for one day,” Ne-Yo told PEOPLE at the Ronald McDonald House Charity’s World Children’s Day event Tuesday, where Panettiere, 18, also made an appearance. “She was hanging out with some friends and invited me to come out.”

As for the hand holding, “I was helping her out of the car!” says the singer, 28. “She had these shoes – they were cute – but they were torture devices, so I had to help her.”

Ne-Yo probably wanted a piece of lil Hayden, her shoe game that is.

Shaunie Has Her Own Stacks: Already Worth $30 Million

ShaqShaunie9

According to the recet court documents, Shaunie may be worth $30 million and this is before she gets more of Shaq’s stacks in a divorce settlement:

The financial affidavit she recently filed shows that the mother of four kids with Shaq may be worth as much as $30 million.

Although neither former lovebird nor their lawyers commented, the paperwork shows Shaunie, who’s been hitched to the big man for five years, lists nearly $450,000 in cash and stocks as assets. The couple’s $25 million Star Island home in Miami Beach, a condo in L.A., a $3.95 million home in Orlando and another condo in Miami also figure on her balance sheet. And, if you believe the same document, she invested in several businesses, including a Virginia developer ($250,000) and a Los Angeles eatery, Liberty Grill ($250,000).

We are still waiting for a company to start selling divorce insurance plans to people like Shaq and this guy

Aliciakeus1album

Alicia Keys sold 742,000 copies of her #1 album “As I Am” this week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The #2 album only sold 223K. AK is doing it big on pure talent, no gimmicks and sexed-up marketing.

More signs that it’s time for the old man to retire, American Gangster plummeted to #8 with a 70% decrease to 131K. Don’t feel bad for Camel, his checks are never going to stop coming in.

Shady Dr. 90221 Walks Out On Larry King

Posted by Bossip Staff

Jan Adams

Dr. Jan Adams went on Larry King recently and apparently could not take the heat:

“I had come here to talk about things in the press that aren’t accurate about me,” Adams told King during the CNN show. “But I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for the West family. They asked me not to go on.” Later in the show, it was revealed that Adams had received a letter from the West family’s lawyers earlier Tuesday asking him not to appear on the show – and threatening to ask the Medical Board of California to decertify him if he spoke about the case.

“When they are comfortable, then I will be comfortable [speaking out],” Adams told King. “If they are never comfortable, then I will never be comfortable.” The doctor then removed his ear piece and walked off stage while King cut to commercial.

Ok, then why the hell did he go on the show if they asked him not to? This FUBU doctor needs to sit his ass down for real. He also tells People magazine that he is the plastic surgeon to go to:

“When people say ‘plastic surgery’ they think of me. These suits don’t represent bad plastic surgery, they represent a bad decision in terms of choice of patient.”

Right, so performing surgery in a hole in the wall spot above a Fedex Kinkos in an LA shopping center represents good plastic surgery?
