We are back today with more of the crazy antics, gossip and updates of the rich and dumb, I mean famous. There’s no need for an introduction of the unbelievable and predictable, it’s pretty self-explanatory. So here we go.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have finally confirmed that they are expecting their first child. How sweet is that? I am very happy for them. I am sure they will have a singing, acting, bombshell little one to rival Blue and Nori at parties and Hollywood social events.
In other unfortunate and sad news, it was reported two days ago that Bobbi Kristina was found face down in a bathtub in Rosswell, GA unresponsive and while she was able to be revived, her condition, according to varying reports is bleak. We reported on it when it first happened and since then, along with other outlets, have been keeping a close eye on the situation. We are rooting for Bobbi Kristina and believe that anything is possible. Sadly, the family has announced to TMZ that drugs were found when the local police when in for a second more thorough search of her home. Her family has just moved her to Emory University Hospital which is a sign that things were getting better and something more immediate needed to be done.
This past weekend, was Super bowl 49 and the Patriots and Seahawks went head to head. But the Hawks losing because of a questionable play in the last seconds of the game is not what people are talking about (okay most people are but it’s not the only thing). The real MVP from last night is Missy Elliott who performed the last few minutes of Katy Perry’s half time show and out did the headliner. I have to hand it to Perry, her show was better than I thought it would be, but the one song she did with Lenny Kravitz upstaged her other songs and Missy just stole the whole damn show. She brought hip hop to the nation on the biggest TV audience platform of the year.
Speaking of Katy Perry, I am pretty sure the girl lip synched last night. Of course I watched the show and was surprised that she sounded as crisp and clear as she did. Then, my suspicion piqued, I looked closely at her lips as she performed and I couldn’t connect what I was hearing to what they were doing. It didn’t match. I wondered, “Is this girl lip synching?” I mean, maybe it is not that big of a deal and call my old fashioned, but I am just used to my Super Bowl half time performers doing it live. I guess long gone are the days of true artists who can dance and sing at the same damn time.
In nigga news, Suge Knight can’t seem to get his lies straight. We first reported that he was involved in a hit and run on the set of a film project in Compton. Since then he has been arrested for the murder of Terry Carter, the man he intentionally ran over… in reverse. Now sources connect with Dr. Dre, who Suge claimed to be visiting because he was told that Dre wanted to squash their beef, says that Suge had no business being on set because Dre nor anyone in his camp requested his presence. There are so many confusing reports about what happened here. Suge sources are saying that Carter called them and said Dre wanted to make peace and Dre’s people are saying it never happened. Word on the street is that they didn’t want to have Suge around at all because they believe he has a target on his back. Hmmm, yea that sounds about right.
This qualifies as a third-strike case for Knight, 49, and he faces the possibility of life in prison, the district attorney’s office said. Knight plead not guilty to charges of murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run, and then he was quickly taken to a local hospital for medical evaluations after his Tuesday arraignment.
A bit of good news, comedian Tracy Morgan continues to recover step by step from the fatal accident involving a Walmart Truck last June (comedian Jimmy Mack was killed in the crash). Morgan still needs some assistance because the accident took a major toll on his health, but he is making good strides every day. He was spotted out and about in NYC Saturday. Good to hear Tracy!
In TV news, if you have not tuned in to Fox Network’s Empire, you are missing out on the hottest show on television right now. The ratings for the Terrance Howard and Tarji P. Henson drama are crazy high which is a great sign for black Hollywood. With four episodes under its belt, we have seen everything from the murder of childhood friends, gay and straight sex, infidelity, singing, hoodrat antics, Naomi Campbell and more. It’s not too late to catch up on it. See my weekly recap here on Movie TV Tech Geeks and you will be just fine.
Finally, what is really going on with Mariah Carey? I understand that she is having a hard time going through another divorce and this time, having to deal with children through the whole thing. But she is slacking as a performer and it looks like it is becoming a normal thing. After her questionable Christmas performance in NYC over the holiday season, she once again had some singing issues over the weekend during her show at the 2015 Jazz and Blues Festival in Jamaica. She didn’t sing live but instead relied on a vocal track. I am not sure what the issues are with her, but I hope she gets it together. Maybe it all stems from her reported diva ways. She needs to lighten up and focus on her family and her voice cause this shit cray.
