Quick and Early Start for Blacks

Posted by Bossip Staff

Blacks are getting an early start to this year’s presidential election, according to Livesteez.

Americans are voting early in large numbers this year — and African-Americans in several states are turning out in disproportionate numbers. Some fear that polling places in predominantly black neighborhoods will be overwhelmed by a record turnout on Election Day. Others are voting early to be certain the chance to elect the first black U.S. president doesn’t slip away. Lorene Smith was in her twenties when she marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. She witnessed first-hand all kinds of history-book images — the fire hoses, police dogs and flailing billy clubs. Now, at 65, she has graying hair and a bad back that prevents her from standing too long. She is taking no chances with a ballot she once believed could never be cast — a vote for an African-American presidential candidate.”We gonna have two little black girls in the White House running up and down the hallways to find their dog,” she said as she voted Tuesday

No one has united the black community the way Obama has, since Martin used to come on in the early to mid 90′s. It’s been a long time coming and we are elated to see the type of support shown for Obama. YES WE CAN!!!!!

Rodney King On Addiction

Posted by Bossip Staff

Rodney King and his Dark & Lovely texturized kitted up crop talks bout his stint on the Celebrity Rehab show:

Rodney King is swigging a beer as he talks with TV’s “Dr. Drew” Pinsky. “Every day I wake up with a beer is a good day,” he says as he drains the bottle. King, whose on the second season of VH1′s “Celebrity Rehab,” is still dealing with drug and alcohol dependencies.  King calls his participation on the show and new found sobriety “a blessing.”

King: It felt like I was, in one way, helping a generation before me and a generation coming up after me, to let them see a good, fairly decent human being struggle with this disease. After a while, I didn’t even really notice the cameras. I threw that out of my mind and just focused on me and what I was there for. What I was there for was to help myself, and at the same time I knew that by me being upfront with this thing that other people would see and they might think, ‘It’s not so embarrassing, let me go get myself some help.’

Although Celebrity Rehab ain’t sh*t, we can’t knock him getting help. Besides, anything is better than getting shot in the face.

An Extra Stupid Rapper

Posted by Bossip Staff

Livesteez reports Lil Boosie got popped with dank and burners after he pulled up next to one-time flossin’ in a brand new Challenger:

The East Baton Rouge Parish deputies arrested Boosie, born Torrance Hatch, at 4 p.m. after he pulled up next to the deputies at Government Street and Interstate 10 in Louisiana, according to the arrest warrant. The deputies smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the rapper’s white Dodge Challenger. When the deputies approached the vehicle, Hatch refused to get out and attempted to drive away, reports 2TheAdvocate.com.

We can’t tell if these stupid maneuvers are an attempt to get some street cred, or just simple acts of idiocy. You must be retarded to roll up on one-time blazing, or you are trying to sell more records. SMH

Getting Right Down to Business

Posted by Bossip Staff

The Red Light District could be coming to a city near you very soon according to a report by Livesteez:

Prostitutes could soon walk the streets without fear of arrest in San Francisco, CA, if voters next month approve Proposition K, a measure that forbids local authorities from investigating, arresting or prosecuting anyone for selling sex. San Francisco would become the first major U.S. city to decriminalize prostitution. The ballot question technically would not legalize prostitution, since state law still prohibits it, but the measure would eliminate the power of local law enforcement officials to go after prostitutes. Proponents say the measure will free up $11 million the police spend each year arresting prostitutes and allow them to form collectives. “It will allow workers to organize for our rights and for our safety,” said Patricia West, 22, who said she has been selling sex for about a year by placing ads on the Internet. She moved to San Francisco in May from Texas to work on Proposition K.

Sending meaningless text messages every hour and pretending to care about how her day was could be a thing of the past, gentlemen. If things work out with this piece of legislation, you can put the ‘Dinner & Movie’ money right in her purse and head straight to the bedroom, and cuddling is optional after! Jackpot.

Recidivism: Look It Up, Lyfe

Posted by Bossip Staff

Here’s an update on the Lyfe Jennings situation we reported about yesterday:

Jennings, 30, was arrested Sunday on gun charges in Smyrna while trying to locate the mother of his children, police said. The singer/songwriter kicked in the door of a residence on Springwoods Drive in Smyrna while looking for Joy Pound, according to an arrest warrant. He fired the gun in the street and later tried to run from the Smyrna police when they arrived, police said. Smyrna police chased Jennings after receiving a call about a gunshot fired. Police followed Jennings in his red Corvette along Concord Road, where he was going about 70 mph according to the warrant. Once he was stopped, Jennings refused a field sobriety test. The warrant said he “had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage” coming from his breath. He posted a $50,000 bond Monday night. In addition to the gun charges and trespassing, he has been charged with eluding police and driving under the influence, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Having your albums go platinum is something to strive for. Getting back to jail so no one takes your prison ID number; not so much. Did he just negate all of the positive messages that he tries to put out there with his music?

Oprah is living out Biggie’s famous words. Livesteez is reporting that another nut job is trying to sue her, this time for $180 million:

Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey is being sued by a Louisiana man for $180 million, after claims the popular talk show host gave false statements to the FBI, which led to his being arrested in 2006. Keifer Bonvillain says that he was wrongfully accused of attempting to extort Winfrey. Bonvillain was arrested in December at his home in Houma, after allegedly recording a phone conversation with one of Winfrey’s production company employees and saying he wanted to publish a book using the information from the recorded material, as reported by Vibe.com.

Touch the link for the rest of the grandiose statements that that Bonvillain character gave in his defense.

Natalie Cole Is Still Kickin

Posted by Bossip Staff

Natalie Cole’s most recent bout with Hepatitis C was nearly fatal but she pulled through:

It’s been a bumpy road lately for Natalie Cole – the singer recently revealed she has been struggling with Hepatitis C, a disease she thinks she contracted in her drug-ridden past, and has been in and out of the hospital. And now she has a new health battle to fight. “They told me… ‘Your lungs have filled up with fluid and your kidney is functioning at 10%,’ ” Natalie reveals to Entertainment Tonight about a recent health scare in NYC. “They would have found me either unconscious or dead. I think I was on my way out.” The “Unforgettable” singer is still battling Hepatitis C, and she’s now on dialysis.”I was in denial that I was close to dying until after 3-4 days of being hospitalized and them putting me on dialysis,” she says. “I had a lot of time to think. The first thing I knew is that I will never work the same way again. Three hours a day, three times a week (during dialysis) I just sit there and am glad that there is something to keep me going.”

Natalie’s next step to wellness could involve a serious step – an organ transplant.

Ms. Cole’s messy past coming to haunt her should be a warning to all people. Do not do drugs. The side effects may take their time to come back and f*ck you up. FACT
