Lil Kim To Pose For Playboy

What do you do when you are a washed up ex-convict with your music career down in the dumps? Pose for Playboy of course...well apparently Lil Kim is considering a centerfold in the magazine's December 2008 issue to try and save her fledging career.

According to reports Playboy creator Hugh Hefner has been courting the self confessed black barbie for years, "I am willing to shell out any amount for Kim, I’ve been trying to get her to do it for years! Hugh exclaims."

Ok, without a doubt this is one of those WTF? moments but in all honesty no one wants to see Kim posed in her clothes not to mention naked. There are just no words to describe the current state that Lil Kim is in due to what she has subjected herself to because of her obsession with the surgeon's knife but she needs to keep that sh*t to herself.

There is just no need for this at all, I dread to think how much over time her re-toucher will have to do because he/she will have to photoshop the hell out of those pics. I know I keep saying it but sometimes these jokes just write themselves. SMH!

Serena Sizzles In Men's Health


It seems like my prayers have finally been answered because Serena looks banging in the September issue of Men's Health Magazine. The lighting, the make-up, the hair and not to mention the body is on point. The tennis champ looks sexy as hell in this shoot and I will go as far as to say this is her best look yet. Get it girl! Major Upgrade!

Serena is rumoured to be dating rapper Common, talks about what attracts her to men:

"I’m a sucker for gentlemen, I’m old fashioned. I’m a girl who believes that a guy should take the lead. They should open doors, close doors. I also look for someone who has a good relationship with their mom. My mom always said, ‘Look for someone whom you can laugh with, ’cause it means you can have fun with that person."


Kanye West: Champion {Video}

I'm sure Champion is about the 10th single from Kanye's Graduation album. With all that aside Champion is my second favourite track on the album. Enjoy.

"Love For Sale" Premiere

Celebs hit up the Love For Sale premiere at the The 12th Annual American Black Film Festival in LA on Friday. The new Russ Parr film stars Mya, Clifton, Powell, Melyssa Ford (straight to video I see), Jackie Long and Jason Weaver.

I guess Mya's music career is finished since her album, Liberation sank without a trace but I guess she can always fall back on her blossoming acting career. She was due to make her broadway debut in Chicago in May but had to postpone it because of a broken foot.
