Oooh, hot couple alert! Chris Tucker and India.Arie are rumored to be dating! I never got a chance to post this before, but I was digging India’s style at the Grammy’s. It’s nice to know there’s at least one bona fide afrobella always holding the natural hair at the forefront.
Be still my heart — The Muppets could be coming back to primetime television!!! According to Greg James of Muppet Central, “Earlier this month a short presentation pilot for a proposed Muppet mini-series recently wrapped production. The project is being kept “under wraps” right now. This presentation pilot, completed in January 2007, proposes a mini-series shot in mock documentary style that continues to follow the adventures of the Muppets as they create a new show. The short pilot uses the television syntax of a documentary (think The Office meets The Muppet Show). The series revolves around Kermit the Frog as he attempts to reassemble the Muppet troupe and launch a new Muppet show.”
First of all – isn’t that the basic plot of The Muppet Movie? Great, ’cause that’s my favorite. Second of all – The Office meets The Muppet Show??? My current favorite show meets my childhood favorite? I’m so excited! Now that I’ve completely revealed myself to be a muppet dork, you may continue reading.
Do you have any friends who watch Mind of Mencia? Lordy, I loathe that show. I always have. Now I’ve got a good reason – lo, the continuing saga of Carlos Menstealia vs. Joe “Fear Factor” Rogan. The video’s long, but worth watching. Having confronted Mencia — who apparently isn’t even really Mexican, he’s half German, half Honduran and his real name is Ned — Joe Rogan has been dropped by his agent and banned from the world famous Comedy Store. I never ever thought I’d say this when he was encouraging people to choke down bull testicles or lie in aquariums filled with snakes; but — Team Rogan all the way.
I strongly believe in the power of protest, but I’m not sure I can protest against Ludacris. I’m still listening to Freaky Thangs in the morning on my way to work. However, I agree with the main point – ‘Cris, I love you but it does look hypocritical to put Oprah on blast for not respecting hip hop, then to celebrate the birthday of a known racist complete with video evidence of her racism and liberal use of homophobic slurs. All I can say about Paris is, at least Perez Hilton hasn’t written about her in a while. After leading the Isaiah Washington charge, I hope he shows some integrity by backing completely away from the likes of her.
Another installment in the “famous people are crazy” file – according to this sizzling Radar Magazine article, Wesley Snipes is on a whole ‘nother level. We’re talking the indictment for tax fraud, extremist group affiliation, private militia kind of level. Scary.
Sometimes makeup inspiration can come from childhood fascinations. I have always loved mermaids, and since I discovered Michelle Wiebe’s art over at Just My Cup of Tea, I want her paintings on the wall next to my dresser. I’m loving the Lady with Seven Stars.
Nobody did the mermaid look more beautifully than Sade in her No Ordinary Love video.
She’s a goddess. I’ll be rocking some soft sea green eyeshadow and bronzy pink lipgloss today in homage.
