Rising to the Occasion

Beyonce cheered for her boo Jay-Z the Camel as he blew the roof off at Glastonbury this weekend. The Hov also set the record straight for all those opposed to him perfoming at the festival, especially that wack singer Noel Gallagher:

Jay-Z had an answer for his toughest critic at the annual Glastonbury Music Festival in Britain Saturday. The 142,500 fans in attendance cheered as Jigga took the stage with a guitar slung over his shoulder and immediately sang along to “Wonderwall,” the 1995 hit single from British band Oasis.

Oasis lead singer, Noel Gallagher, has repeatedly voiced his frustration with Glastonbury organizers for choosing Jay-Z, a hip hop act, to headline a festival that has been traditionally rooted in rock and alternative music.

“The world should be all about mixing culture,” Jay-Z said to UK radio personality Tim Westwood. “Hip-hop is music in its art form. It should be accepted and respected. It’s all the same thing, it’s just coming from a different perspective.”

It’s About Time That….

Eddie Murphy retire from the movie making biz:

Eddie Murphy is dishing about leaving the movie business for good after the release of his latest film. “I have close to fifty movies and it’s like, why am I in the movies?” he said, adding, “I’ve done that part now. I’ll go back to the stage and do standup.”

Murphy, 47, said that while a “Beverly Hills Cop 4″ flick was in the works, he didn’t want to do it, because “the movie wasn’t ready to be done.” Murphy said he agreed to do “Cop 3″ because of the large fee he was offered. “They said this is how much we’re going to pay you. I said, ‘let’s go shoot it! I don’t care if the script ain’t right.” As for Eddie’s love life, the new bachelor [said] he is currently looking for a woman with “just honesty and some other things.”

Hmmm. Wonder if by “other things” he was referring to an adams apple and the old twig and berries?

Eddie’s most recent films have been sooo ass, he should’ve let that ship set sail years ago. The real question is: Sure, he may take the stage again, but can the brotha recover from years of doing wack ass kiddie movies ‘n’ shyte? Only time will tell…..

Jesus Take The Wheel

This is Alan Patton, Urine Connoisseur:

Police charged a northwest Columbus man with criminal mischief for allegedly planning to collect young boys’ urine and drink it. Alan Patton was recently spotted in restrooms at Sports Ohio two weeks ago. According to a police report, Patton, 56, the female employee recognized him as the same man she saw the previous week “putting Saran Wrap on toilets and cups in urinals.”

The employee called police and found Patton walking out of a restroom stall with a black duffle bag.

In 1994, Patton pleaded guilty to a charge of gross sexual imposition against an 8-year-old boy. He served four years in prison and was labeled a sex offender. Then, in 2006, Patton was caught at a Gahanna movie theater and was accused of watching little boys urinate. Police said that Patton admitted to collecting boys’ urine and even paid them for it. Patton was charged with voyeurism.

Police said that Patton would turn the water to the urinals off, place a cup inside and then collect the urine after a boy went to the bathroom.

Woah – this cat is highly deranged. Let’s get this straight, he’s a fan of the mellow yellow, who carries his contraband around in a duffel bag. Where have we heard this before?

Paris Bennett is expecting a baby girl in October and will be 20 when mommyhood arrives.”This makes five generations,” an overjoyed Jamecia Bennett [said]. Jamecia, who like her daughter and mother is a singer, is absolutely over the moon about being a first-time grandmother.

“I’m proud of how she did it. I was 16 when I got pregnant,” said Jamecia.

Who’s the daddy? “He chooses not to be in the public eye,” said Jamecia. “I respect that.” What does he do for a living? “I can’t tell,” she said.

“She has a ring,” said Jamecia, who’s hopeful that she’ll be planning a wedding for Paris.

The planning for an August baby shower is already underway. A few celebrities may fly into town for the show, including Queen Latifah.

Peep Mos Def and his estranged wife Alana Wyatt during happier times. Now the former stripper is writing a tell-all which implicates him as a wife beater. She starts by reminiscing on how they became close:

“He had asked me if I would attend a MuchMusic performance featuring Kanye West. Now, that was a little awkward because a year prior I had met Kanye in Vegas and we had a moment! NOT SEXUAL! I REPEAT, KANYE WEST and I NEVER have had sexual relations,” she emphasises in the book. She adds: “Much to my surprise, Mos introduced me as his wife.” The next day, August 17, 2005, the pair were married at Toronto City Hall. In the wedding photos included in the book they look happy and sober. “There were stories that we may have been on drugs when we go married…..it was true honest love at first sight.”

Closet Scientologists

Why O Why must they deny? Although Will and Jada’s say their new “academy” isn’t a Scientology institute, it sure does sound like one:

Called the New Village Academy, scheduled to open Sept. 3, the Calabassas, Calif.-based school will offer a curriculum of literacy and math, living skills, Spanish, karate, yoga, robotics, technology, etiquette and art that will be taught using the Scientology teaching method of study technology.

That’s not the only Scientology influence on campus though — many of the school’s teachers belong to the controversial church.

Yeah, that’s some “new” ish alright. Highly suspect indeed.

Uh oh…Could there be trouble on the homefront? Charlize Theron says she and Will fell in love while making “Hancock” Continue »
