Hot Mess Mondays: Not Everything Is A Publicity Stunt

Good morning everyone! As always, I hope that everyone had a splendid weekend. Now, let’s get straight to the countdown!

1) T.I. for his newest jail sentence.

Just last Friday, T.I. found out that he would be serving 11 more months in prison for drug possession back in September. Yikes! Honestly, I don’t know what to say about this one. T.I. has only been out of jail for his last crimes for a few months. Such a mess…

p.s. Even though T.I. was absolutely stupid in this matter, I think it’s also a hot mess that he gets harsher punishments than some other celebrities who have made this countdown in the past.

Here is a comment I found about the T.I. situation.

“Lindsay Lohan violated probation also and she isn’t in jail, she is in rehab. What is wrong with this picture? Paris Hilton gets busted all of the time with drugs, isn’t she still on probation? Why isn’t anyone asking these questions?” – Anonymous

Anonymous, those are my thoughts exactly. At least T.I. showed up for his court date unlike Ms. Lohan, who ended up missing hers because she was out of the country. Just sayin…

2) The American public for thinking everything is a publicity stunt.

If you’ve been following the T.I. story, then you know that last week the rapper also made headlines for helping a suicidal man off the roof of a building in Atlanta. After T.I. convinced the man not to end his life, people claimed that it was all a publicity stunt to make T.I. look good before his court appearance. Honestly, I just think that people can be so ridiculous sometimes. No one is going to stage a suicide attempt for good publicity. Also, have we really lost THAT much faith in one another? Sometimes people are genuinely good people, and I believe that about T.I. despite his criminal history.

3) Bishop Eddie Long and his church for just being an overall mess.

Apparently, the bishop is not the only one causing New Birth Missionary trouble.  Last week, Theybf.com reported that a woman by the name of Tama Colson was suing the church for failing to address her claims that Michael Caesar, a prominent church staff member, showed her inappropriate pictures of his penis as well as had other inappropriate interactions with women in the church. Smh…No words.

4) Kanye West for always complaining.

It looks like Kanye’s a little annoyed that people don’t like his latest artwork for his album cover. The cover depicts a naked Kanye being straddled by some white “phoenix.” Although, I can understand Kanye’s frustrations as an artist wanting to freely express himself,  I can also understand why some companies might think the picture is a little risky to be put on shelves…Anyways, wherever there is Kanye West, there is always controversy, and I’m a little tired of it.

5) The Situation for being a terrible situation.

 

The Situation and Pauly D

 

Jersey Shore never fails to entertain me, but last week I was completely disgusted my Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s behavior on the show. Twice, Mike failed at being a wingman for his friend Pauly D, who happens to be my fave on the show. Not to mention, Mike has proven time and time again that he is much too aggressive with the opposite sex. Not every woman wants you Mike. Get off and get over it!

With that said, I like The Situation. lol

Hot Mess Mondays: The Men Are Dominating

Not in a good way…

Good morning boys and girls!

I’m feeling a little under the weather this morning, but that’s why it’s good that it’s a Hot Mess Monday. lol Now, I know that Hot Mess Mondays usually focus on the ridiculousness that went down the week before, but I’ve come across some pretty interesting news this morning that has to make this list.

Let’s get it!

1) Any celebrity male that is accused of pedophilia.

 

Bishop Eddie Long

 

This morning on Hip Hop Wired, it was reported that Raz B, former member of the R&B boyband B2K, was speaking out against celebrity pedophiles, including Eddie Long, Chris Stokes, and Marques Houston. Marques Houston?!

 

Chris Stokes and Marques Houston

 

For those of you who are less familiar with Marques Houston’s music career, you may know him as the lovable Roger from the hit TV show Sister Sister. Now, this is the first time I have heard anything like this  about him, but who knows with these celebrities sometimes…As for Eddie Long and Chris Stokes, they both have been publicly accused of such misbehavior in the past. In fact, Eddie Long is dealing with his decision to have “Spiritual Sons” right now. Smh…

Here’s the article about Raz-B, calling out the three men. —> Raz B of B2K Calls Out Pedophiles

2) Alicia Keys for acting like she’s done nothing wrong.

It’s old news that Ms. Keys got together with her husband, producer Swizz Beatz, before he was divorced from his wife. However, now that Alicia is pregnant, she’s been seen flaunting her baby bump all over the place. Now, I know that the girl can’t escape the cameras, but the story of how her marriage and baby bump all came together equals serious judgment. Maybe Alicia should go live a quieter life for a while? Just a thought…

p.s. Ms. Keys is also a hot mess for never releasing a video for “Put It In A Love Song.” When I first started this blog, there were stills of her and Beyonce making the video in Brazil. But, where is it, Alicia? Where is it? lol

Anyways…

3) T.I. for facing 14 months prison time.

Honestly, T.I. is just making some pretty stupid decisions. He’ll be on this list until he gets it together.

4) Lil’ Wayne for also making stupid decisions while already in jail.

Not too long ago, Wayne was ordered to solitary confinement for being caught with an mp3 player at his latest home on Rikers Island. Wayne will remain in solitary confinement until he is released on Nov. 4th. A mess….If anything, Wayne can take pride in the fact that he still continues to sell plenty of music while incarcerated. Unfortunately, his success on the Billboard charts does not excuse his behavior.

5) Christopher Columbus for having a holiday.

Okay, so this entry is a little extra…lol However, seeing as though today is Columbus Day, I think it’s a hot mess that after all of the truth that has come out about Christopher Columbus that we still honor him with his own holiday. Sure, he discovered the Americas for Spain, but let’s not forget that plenty of people (i.e. the Native Americans) had reached America long before Christopher. Not to mention, Christopher and his men were outrageously cruel to the people they came into contact with.

Today there’s an article in The Huffington Post about Columbus Day, and I think it’s worth a read.

Check it out. —> Columbus Day? True Legacy – Cruelty and Slavery

Thoughts?

**And, with that, today’s Hot Mess countdown is over. Sadness I know…Hopefully, some of these celebrities get their acts together/ some psychological help.

Hot Mess Mondays: Have The Celebs Been On Good Behavior?

Of course not. lol With that said, it’s not Hollywood that made the number one spot today. It’s…

1) Mark Zuckerberg – For having a being a hot mess.

UPDATE: I have to change my hot mess description because maybe Zuckerberg’s life wasn’t all bad. With that said, he’s still a hot mess and has made some hot mess decisions without the consent/knowledge of the ones most being affected by them.

**Original post: That description might sound a little harsh, but if a fraction of the The Social Network is true, then Zuckerberg is a hot mess personality, who made hot mess decisions.

With that said, he’s the youngest billionaire in the world. BUT, we all know that money does not buy happiness.

2) The Situation – For being absolutely terrible on Dancing With The Stars.

Last week, Jersey Shore‘s The Situation had his second go at the dancing competition, and from what I saw it wasn’t too good. We all excused him for the first week when he didn’t have as much time to rehearse as the other contestants. Saving him for a second time, however, might have been a bad idea America. The kid doesn’t even know what musicality is…

I do kinda like his haircut though. lol

3) Angelina – For being the least liked member of the Jersey Shore.

Living in a house full of characters, both good and bad, how is it that you manage to become the least liked cast member? I don’t know, but that’s the question I want to ask Jersey Shore’s Angelina. Even though Angelina’s departure was supposed to be the highlight of Thursday night’s episode, I think I was more entertained by Pauly D and the boys’ “It’s TTT-shirt Tiiiiiiime!” than with anything involving Angelina…

4) T.I. for possibly getting his probation revoked.

Earlier last month, I reported that T.I. and his wife Tiny were arrested in West Hollywood. Now, it looks like T.I. will be facing a federal judge next Friday. He better get down on his hands and knees, and beg not to have his probation taken away. Geez…

5) Calvin Harris for making a big deal out of nothing.

On my last Music Tuesday, I posted a link to Chris Brown’s new single “Yeah 3x,” unaware of the controversy surrounding it. If you go on YouTube and read the comments under “Yeah 3x,” you will see a lot of support for UK singer and DJ Calvin Harris. Apparently, Mr. Harris accused Chris Brown of stealing his beat from “I’m Not Alone.” Now, I listened to both singles, and it’s true. Chris’ beat is beyond similar. With that said, the beat is not Harris’ original work. If you do a little research, Mr. Harris took his own beat from The Chemical Brothers. Honestly, who cares about any of this stuff anyways? ALL music is sampled nowadays. Smh…

Hot Mess Mondays: Celebrity Stupidity

Now, it’s time for the real news of the day. There were a lot of celebrities fighting for the Hot Mess crown last week, but not everyone can make my top 5 Hot Mess list, and only one can win the Hot Mess title. Let’s see, who’s been messing up lately.

1) German Pop singer Nadja Benaissa for giving her boyfriend HIV.

This story still irks me. How can a girl, who has known her HIV status for years, just have unprotected sex with her boyfriend??? I wonder how many other lucky men have contracted the virus from her…This is why Nadja is the Hot Mess queen.

2) T.I. for getting arrested again.

I reported T.I. and Tiny’s arrest the morning after it happened. Celebrities really don’t get it sometimes. I don’t want T.I. to go back to jail, but if he’s that stupid, then maybe he deserves to. With that said, weed should be legalized. Just sayin…And, I don’t even smoke.

3) Ne-Yo for talking about T.I.’s arrest.

Last week, the Associated Press reported Ne-Yo’s opinions on T.I.’s recent arrest. According to the article, Ne-Yo argued that T.I. has made many “poor choices” and has had “enough chances.” Although Ne-Yo claims that he was misquoted, I’d say he’s a hot mess for even commenting on the matter. Keep it to yourself Ne-Yo.

p.s. Didn’t Ne-Yo also get arrested once before?

4) Kanye West for apologizing to Taylor Swift again for last year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Don’t worry Kanye. We all know that you can be an ass. Honestly, even though people tried to act upset over the incident last year, no one actually cared. You just made the VMA’s that much for memorable and comedic with your comments. I’m sure MTV appreciated it as well…lol

5) Paris Hilton for telling authorities that she thought her coke was gum.

This hot messness was reported right after Paris’ arrest. Come on Paris… You knew good and well that the little baggie of cocaine falling out of your purse was not gum…Stupid.

**And, that wraps up all of this Monday’s Hot Mess winners. Stay tuned for next Monday’s list. I’m sure I’ll have plenty of celebs to choose from by Friday. 🙂

True Thursdays: T.I. Hasn’t Gotten The Message

At first, I wasn’t sure about what approach I should take with True Thursdays. Celebrity gossip is always updating itself. I must say that I am glad that I waited until this morning to find out the latest news because it’s oh so good!

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore

Well, it looks like Star magazine is under some Ashton Kutcher fire. Recently, the magazine reported that Ashton cheated on his wife, Demi Moore, with a younger woman. Kutcher is denying all allegations, and is looking to sue the magazine for defamation of character. Access Hollywood reports that Kutcher vented on his twitter account about Star‘s story.

As of right now, Demi is standing behind her husband of almost 5 years. Let us hope that Kutcher is telling the truth. The only thing making me believe Kutcher is the fact that the magazine is Star. If People magazine had reported the same story, then we would really have something to talk about. Sorry Star

Moving on…

T.I. and Tiny

Last night in West Hollywood, rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, from the 90s R&B group Xscape, were arrested on suspicion of drug possession. Apparently, police stopped the car that T.I. and Tiny were driving before smelling marijuana smoke. Both stars were arrested and then released on $10,000 bail each. Good job T.I.!

Read the full story here. —->Rapper T.I., Wife Tiny Arrested on Drug Charges

Personally, I just think that this entire thing is a HOT mess. It was just this past Monday that I praised T.I. for producing Takers, the #1 movie in the country. It’s a shame that celebrities always achieve something great only to follow it with something potentially disastrous. Hopefully, T.I. is not sent back to prison…

p.s. I’m starting to think that I should retire Hot Mess Mondays, and just do Hot Mess Week. Because clearly…

Film Fridays pt. 2: My Take On Takers

Technically, it’s not Friday, but let’s just pretend for the sake of this post. lol As promised, I saw Takers, and there’s much to talk about.

If I had to describe Takers in one word, I would simply say that this movie was FLY.  Immediately after the opening scene, I was hit with a series of shots highlighting the glitz and glam of Los Angeles. Whoever styled the characters in this movie, especially Hayden Christensen, did a fantastic job!

My love for Hayden definitely went up a level after watching Takers. He was the epitome of fly, and definitely played more of a major role in the film than I anticipated along with T.I.

Speaking of T.I., I cannot forget about the stylishly tailored suits worn by him, Idris Elba, Michael Ealy, and Paul Walker. These guys’ clothes were so nice that throughout most of the movie my attention was drawn more to the characters’ looks and dress than to the actual plot. lol Is that a bad thing? I don’t think so. Let’s face it… You don’t get an ensemble cast of Hollywood’s most beautiful men, so that people will see the movie for the story. Just sayin…..

Anyways….

Because this is the opening weekend for Takers, I will not give away the plot. However, I will commend T.I. on his performance as Ghost, a former “taker” and convicted felon, whose gamble plays a major role throughout the film. Also, T.I.’s  really not too shabby of an actor, and got to show off plenty of acting chops in this movie. I also want to applaud Chris Brown for his running and jumping skills. Even the audience whooped and hollered for him as he dashed through L.A. traffic, which everyone knows is DANGEROUS. lol

Side note: I never paid attention to Idris Elba until this movie. Now, Mr. Elba will definitely be on my watch. 😉

Anyways, if I had to sum up Takers in a  four line review, I would simply say……

“Filled with enough style, action, and drama, Takers is your classic heist film. With a star-studded ensemble cast, Takers does not have enough time to develop a backstory for each individual character. However, the  overall storyline does allow the audience to experience a fun-filled ride that for the most part seems neither rushed nor forced. And, if there’s one message that Takers is going to leave you with by its end, it’s that money is always up for the taking.”

Check it out! It’s always fun to root for the bad guys. lol

p.s. Shout out to T.I. and Michael Ealy for also helping to produce the film. There’s a reason this “mainstream” movie has a lot of black faces…. 😉
