politics, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH! while i enjoy the lively debates on the more serious topics, I, for one am ready for a topic that addresses all things superficial. clothes, hair, make-up, bling-bling, juicy gossip even. anyone with me?

i'll start.

in the latest l'oreal ads that feature beyonce, couldn't they have given sister-girl a better weave?

see it's easy! let the dish begin!

Original Post
Although I love to discuss the going on's of the world, I also enjoy a little gossip and superficial stuff too!(lol) But it is when it gets to a point like over on the Bet's music boards to where every post u see is one about B2k and which one is the finest that it gets to be a problem! It's ok to have one or two, but not all of them-I like a nice healthy balance!

I agree with u on Beyonce's hair. She usually has such pretty hairstyles, but that combination afro and spiral curls doo ain't gonna get it!

I read in Honey today that Q-tip and Janet Jackson may be a couple. Is this a new rumor or am I just not hip with what's going on?(I would have never pictured them two togeather!)

------------------------------
To know me is to love me!

Don't hate me b/c of the things I say, hate me b/c I have the nerve to say them.
has been rumored to be creeping with q-tip for quite some time, he is a nasty boy....and i ain't mad at her! anyone heard about a justin timberlake (nsync) alicia keys creep?

i was sure she liked carpet.....in the words of seinfeldd, not that there is anything wrong with liking carpet or anything.

and what's up with prince's ex-wife, mayte, and tommy lee? eiwwwwwww, he's a dirty looking white boy.

Then again, I didn't see the video, but I hear Tommy is 'bringin' it"!!

Onward and Upward!
WHATTTTTT is right??
I didn't even hear about their break-up. dang...

tommy lee is a dirty lookin white boy...like even his breath would carry some kind of disease!!! LOL

gossip is a funny thing...all of these people have lives-just like us, it's just that their lives are out there for us to see-or a portion of their lives. we think we know--but we'll never really know!!

those who stand for nothing fall for anything
"..WE think we know, but we never reallyknow.." And that's why this thread is called "all things superficial", right?? We're just B.S.-ing about B.S.! But, while we're on the subject smile, i also used to think that Tommy Lee was gross looking; but then I saw an interview with him and i realized that he was cuter than i had thought; but a lot uglier inside than i had known {wife abuse, drugs, etc.}
julia roberts got married yesterday!!??? she shoulda held on to that fine, ass benjamin bratt (who, by the by, is expecting a baby any day now with talisa soto).

scary how i know this stuff!!!

i'm disappointed that whoopie or b bankins hasn't made their way into this thread yet...they are unwilling to give us any juicy gossip on Dubya or his alcholic daughters.....

yaunah you are TOO MUCH!! LOL!!!

BTW - I saw a rerun of Janet Jackson's concert on HBO last night. Quick question. Any of you ladies hatin' on Janet because of all of her plastic surgery? Forget about all of the face stuff, but she clearly had some "body sculpting" done on her. She looks amazing! I'm just wondering whether it matters if you work for the body or pay for it? smile

Onward and Upward!
interesting that you would mention janet's concert on hbo...i was also re-watching it with my almost 13yr old very impressionable daughter and we discussed janet's purchased ab's.

her view (thank goodness) was there's no way janet could have "instantly" obtained ab's like that. janet or her 'people' talk about the number of lonely hours she daily spends doing crunches..and yes, she may work out to keep them tight, but they try to spin it like she's worked out to get them. we were even speculating on if she had a rib removed..the things people will do for their public image.

i was happy to see that my daughter could see through the hype, and that someone as 'large as life' as Janet didn't have her sucked in.

personally i LOVE janet (don't ask me why cuz she really can't sing), and i'm not hatin her for her purchase. i say..."show us what cha workin wit!!"

I read somewhere, where Lil Kim said she had breast implants and she had gotten a little bit of liposuction. Now she said this her self, I think it was in Sister 2 Sister or Honey.

I think Lil Kim bought those boobies a while back. remeber when she was on one of the Music Award shows wearing nothing but a pastie on very exposed, perfectly rounded breast and got felt up by Diana Ross...ya'll remember that!?!

Question--who's seen Missy Misdemeanor Elliott lately--has she shed some weight or what???

those who stand for nothing fall for anything
Yeah I have peeped Missy out. I saw her on some show and she was talking about loosing weight, she said she didn't want to be no stick figure or anything, she just wanted to slim up a little bit. I think she is looking good.


Did ya'll notice that Opera is gaining her weight all back, are is it just me?

that janet concert was taped at least 8-9 months ago (my sister was still living in Hawaii when janet was there) missy has LOST WEIGHT!!

and....speaking of janet and the N'SYNC boy...it has been confirmed--janet and justin timerlake (britney's old bo) are a couple.

that's not the nsync boy i saw her with in miami, but maybe the other nsync boy (robbie, bobby, ricky or mike) was just keepin justin's new girl company!!!

abc news dot com

With witnesses claiming the two were locking lips at a star-studded birthday party last weekend in Miami, reports are spreading that they've become the next showbiz mega-couple.
Even by Hollywood standards, this seems like an unlikely pairing: Jackson's a 36-year-old diva and a member of pop music royalty. He's a 21-year-old 'N Sync member who recently said "Bye, Bye, Bye" to Britney Spears.

Neither Jackson or Timberlake has denied the report Thursday in the New York Post that claimed they were getting very friendly at rapper Missy Elliott's birthday party.
***amazing how all of this ties together!!***
"Janet and Justin just started making out in front of everybody," said a witness who wanted to remain anonymous.

Apparently, Timberlake and Jackson were first spotted together two weeks ago by producer Jermaine Dupri, who allegedly saw them bumping and grinding together in an L.A. club.

I TOLD Y'ALL!!! big grin big grin big grin

This seems MUCH too contrived to be "real". What mega-celebs "make out" in public? I'm not sure I understand the objective, unless Janet is a lot less healthy than it appears (which very well may be true - maybe these are some Michael/LaToya genes coming through!), I'm not sure this pairing makes any sense beyond the PR impact. WEIRD!

Why isn't Janet going after some nice, dashingly handsome business tycoon? (Not that I'm available!) wink

They just don't go in my mind, and it's not the black/white thing either, they just don't seem like they are each others type. DiD ya'll see MTV's Icon tribute to her, Justin was there and he kept saying how fine she was.

I know ya'll heard about Mariah Carey and Eminem? WHo would have put them two togeather, sure not me! And did ya'll here that he broke up with her by leaving a message on her voice mail! ( I actually saw a story on Enertainment Tonight(i think that is the name of it!) about this, so it ain't just a rumor!

the deal is--they are NORMAL RUN OF THE MILL WHITE AMERICAN UPPER CLASS KIDS!! who seem to have this lilly white (excuse the pun) image of never getting in trouble, never using drugs, never drinking alcohol--that's left for our youth in the ghetto's and inner city neighborhoods of America!!

Somebody just told me Mystikal got arrested for attempted rape, among other things. I don't think he would have to rape someone with all the women he can get, but you never know!

------------------------------
To know me is to love me!

Don't hate me b/c of the things I say, hate me b/c I have the nerve to say them.
Mystikal was arrested early Thursday morning along with two men and
accused of raping and extorting a 40-year-old woman, police said.
According to police, the woman cashed checks written to her from the
rapper's account without his permission. Mystikal allegedly offered not to
press charges if he could have sex with her instead. At his home, Mystikal
allegedly raped the women in front of the two men, who then raped and
threatened her also. Neither Mystikal nor Jive Records commented on the
case.

You all have that radar going that can detect even the slightest bit of "fake" anything on another woman; so here's a question that has been on my mind for awhile.

Are Tyra's boobs fake? They very well look like they might be, but a brotha needs some female comfirmation. wink
I would say they are, because they look hard and fake. I saw her on some show and she said she has never gotten any work done on her and she never will! I think fake boobs look awful-unatural! I know Lil Kim has some fake ones, I heard that out of her own mouth. What do ya'll men think, do ya'll like them the same as real ones?

i don't think they're fake. vickies secrets doesn't carry much for women with bigger "girls" (the D-DD club) big grin...and tyra has always modeled bra's in our part of the catalog. so i'd say they're real--and if not, she was on the bigger side before she had work done.

Shoot she don't represent me-I'm a member of the double D club-and that's another thing I hate about Vickies is they only go up to like a C, I can buy underwear there, but not bras! mad

MBM that was funny!So u being a man how do u feel about fake ones???(honestly!)

LOL!! let me clarify--i said tyra "modeled" in our section of the catalog.
putting on a D-DD vicki bra, sitting in one spot for a photo shoot and actually wearing it all day without anything falling out are two VERY different things!!
i'm with you...if im buying for special occasions, or minimal wear, vickie is cool. but bra's for anything else..vickie's not thinkin bout us!! wink

<i>those who stand for nothing fall for anything</i>
lol@brother of the night.

cracking me up....but while we are making requests, i would like a side of watermelon (and the watermelon man, see nykkii's life cover) while were bar-b-quing!

what's up with kooky billy bob and angelina jolie breaking up, they were such a good, odd couple. i guess he got tired of kissing her dry, rhinoceros butt-looking lips.

wink
yaunah..yes i (hiding my face) watch and CALL AND VOTE for the finalists on American Idol. All of them are SO talented--it's going to be hard to pick one to win. seems like they all have off nights, but overall Kelly, Tamyra, and Justin are my fav's to win!

those who stand for nothing fall for anything
Thanks shy1 wink (at times I wish I wasn't a member of that last one!) roll eyes

My favorite is tamyra. I missed the show last night though, who did they vote off this time? I was so glad when they voted off RJ (i think is his name) last week cause he sounded terrible! What do ya'll think of simon?

Did ya'll see that Ashanti is up for an Aretha Franklin Lady of Soul award? People everywhere are outraged(b/c of her lack of a singing voice-which I have seen on 3 occasions live and I hate to agree with it but I agree she can't sing!) There is even a petition at http://www.messed-up.com/petition/ against her winning!

I loved Ashanti, I have her CD and I am all for supporting my fellow sisters, but after hearing her real singing voice, I just don't feel she deserves that award.

Ladies, any advice for me??? Help!!

i mean, how could she resist you dear moderator? me and nyk will handle that for you if you need us to!

although, i have similar problems with benjamin bratt and shamar moore.....geez, they won't give me a break, harassing me, wanting to buy me diamonds....those bastards! big grin
I can not believe Tamyra just got voted off-I am so pissed off and disappointed! Just another plot by the white man to keep a black person down!
mad mad mad mad mad mad mad(Just joking wink wink) I can't believe Nikki is still there and she beat out Tamyra! I guess I got to go with Kelly now.

Report: Biggie Involved in Tupac Hit
E! online 9/6/02

This just in: The Notorious B.I.G. has been fingered in the murder of Tupac Shakur.
That not so earth-shattering revelation comes courtesy of Friday's Los Angeles Times, which spent two years investigating the slaying.

Of course, the theory that Biggie, aka Christopher Wallace, might have had something to do with Tupac's murder is far from novel. Within moments of the Las Vegas drive-by that ultimately claimed Shakur's life in September 1996, the prevalent hypothesis was that the West Coast rapper's archrivals from the East Coast played a role.

The idea went something like this: Tupac represented the major California rap faction, Death Row Records, and Biggie was the biggest star in Sean "Puffy" Combs' Bad Boy empire, the key New York hip-hop house. Tupac and Biggie frequently dissed each other lyrically and in interviews, but most wrote it off as typical rap posturing. Somewhere along the line, their boastful machismo crossed the line into bloodshed.

Such speculation seemed even more valid when Biggie himself was gunned down in Los Angeles in March 1997. Both the Tupac and Biggie murders remain unsolved.

The Times again rounded up the usual suspects. Orlando Anderson, a card-carrying member of the Crips, is once again said to be the trigger man. (Police investigated the Anderson angle but never declared him a formal suspect; he was later slain in an unrelated shooting.)

Anderson had been roughed up by Shakur's posse in Vegas' MGM Grand Hotel following a Mike Tyson fight there. The beat-down was reportedly in retaliation for an earlier incident, in which one of Tupac's bodyguards (a group made up primarily of Crips-hating Bloods gangbangers) was mugged by Anderson and his cohorts.

To be fair, the newspaper adds some new wrinkles to the hoary story, claiming it was Biggie who provided the murder weapon--a .40-caliber Glock pistol-- and a $1 million bounty on Shakur. Biggie was in Vegas at the time of the murder, met with Anderson and agreed to underwrite the hit, according to the Times.

Hours later, a Caddy reportedly carrying Anderson and his fellow Crips, pulled up alongside the BMW driven by Death Row rap mogul Suge Knight. Tupac was in the passenger seat. The assailants opened up on the Beamer and sped away.

Six days later, on September 13, Shakur was dead, and, according to the Times, Wallace paid his first $50,000 installment to Anderson's Crips crew.

Of course, with the trio of principals dead, there's no way to corroborate the Times story. Biggie was killed on March 9, 1997 as he sat in his car following a post-party for the Soul Train Music Awards. (At the time, it was reported that L.A. police were trying to link Knight to the crime, suggesting he might have ordered the hit on Biggie to avenge Tupac's death.) Anderson, meanwhile, was shot dead in May 1998 in a gang clash.

However, the Times also asserts that three other, unidentified Crips who allegedly accompanied Anderson in the Tupac drive-by still live in the L.A. area and have never been questioned by authorities.
now i love cedric the entertainer, but---
the variety show that premired tonight, will not be on my must see tv list. i turned it off half way through because it was OFFENSIVE and just plain STOOPID!! i'm down for silly mindless funny shows...but CED, who are the writers?? call your attorney and fire them!

did anyone else watch...what did you think?

those who stand for nothing fall for anything
What do you think about the drama in MJ's "private" life? He was being blackmailed about an elicit affair (and love child?) that he had awhile ago. I guess he promised the woman some hush money and then she came back for more! Tsk Tsk Tsk!

Michael Jackson: Spider-Man

by Julie Keller
Dec 3, 2002, 4:15 PM PT
The bizarre courtroom saga of Michael Jackson continued Tuesday with an attack of a wicked spider.

The pop oddity returned to court today, several hours late and, on crutches wearing only one shoe, to continue his testimony in a $21 million breach-of-contract flap over canceled millennium concerts. Once again, he took onlookers by surprise as he limped into the Santa Maria, California, courtroom.



"It is a spider bite. It is real bad. If I showed it to you, you'd be shocked," the hobbled moonwalker told reporters. "It hurts very much right now as I speak."

He quickly explained that the attacking arachnid was not one of the pet tarantulas holed up at his nearby Neverland Ranch but a common spider smoked out by a routine fumigation
