Stage Husbands


Posted by Fleur Delacour | Posted in Anita Baker, brew commentary, Brew Love N' Stuff, faith evans, kourtney kardashian, mary j blige | Posted on 29-12-2010

Scott Disick reportedly tried to play hardball with E! to have his son Mason appear in “Kourtney and Kim Take New York”. He wanted $5,000 per episode, while E! was only willing to pay $1,000 per show. Disick pressed and E! threw up the deuces, so now you won’t be seeing Mason at all. Can we all just agree that Disick got into the creepy line twice?

Anyimjustridingthistrainuntilitstops, this story got me thinking about the strangeness about Stage Husbands.

Let’s review Exhibits A, B & C:

Kendu Issacs

What is it you do again? That’s right you sat in the studio with the crew were a record “producer” when you linked up with Murrry, but what have you done lately besides wrestle with Ms. Blige in the club and take her Madison Square Garden tickets? On top of that, something about your eyes is mad scurry to me! Plus, I like the heartbroken, visible panty lines Mary. Better music. Sorry! Next…

Stephen Belafonte

This movie “producer” has a soap opera sounding name and mad sketchy past. Something about you screams former Amway/pre-paid legal/cricket salesperson, you pretty muthaf#cka (spoken in my Wesley Snipes voice)!

Todd Russaw

Faith needs “One More Chance” after being with you. Beside getting busted for riding dirty and adding to her potpourri of offspring. What is it that you do again? Oh, your a producer too? You know Kendu?

Random observation fellas: throwing “producer” after your name don’t make it right! Now I truly hope these marriages last, Lord knows we need some examples of good relationships, but I can’t help but think about Anita Baker. Her ex, the O.G. of stage husbands, is fighting for HALF of her royalties… all because she got caught up in the rapture! If the roles were revered the woman would be called a gold digger. #justsayin

Note To Self: DO NOT Piss Off @questlove


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in questlove, the roots, Twitter, Twittervention, You Mad? | Posted on 28-12-2010

When you go innnnn on a celebrity on Twitter, be prepared for said celeb to return the favor. That’s what one Roots fan found out today.

The weekend storm delayed The Roots from getting to their Washington, DC show on time last night. One pissed off fan tweeted about her pissed-off-edness that she had to pack up and leave the show early:

I'm pissed at @questlove and @tariqtrotter for pulling a lauryn hill last night. I had to leave and can't get my $ back or go tonight.

You mad, boo?

Anyway, she got one helluva response from Roots drummer Questlove who retweeted her comment and then went on a tirade:

RT: catirah "I'm pissed at @questlove and the @tariqtrotter for pulling a lauryn hill last night. I had to leave (cont) http://tl.gd/7p7et2

Questo of The Roots

pulling a lauryn hill.

let’s examine that:

lauryn hill like shoveling myself out of a foot (tariq had 3 feet) of snow?

lauryn hill like tourbus breaking down mid trek?

or lauryn hill like waiting at amtrak for 3 hours?

or lauryn hill like exhausting EVERY outlet until all 8 Roots had to troop down 95 flintstone bald foot style and independent of each other?

lauryn hill like me taking one for the team and djing from 7pm for 3 and a half hours because i knew that people would be on their feet for 4 hours BEFORE the show started?

lauryn hill like me on a consistent basis TWEETING that due to a horrible snow storm that we been trying to escape since 12pm (philly is just under 2 hours from dc, which should explain alot) that the show would be delayed?

lauryn hill like me announcing every 30 mins the status of the missing roots members struggling to get to the venue?

lauryn hill like us putting on a 2+ hour show despite the fact we had spent the last 13 hours in hell without shower/rest/food/energy trying to get to a show any other person woulda cancelled?

lauryn hill is your term for me and tariq being inconsiderate assholes because an act of god prevented us from being onstage when we should have been.

well in front of the whole twitter community. let me be the first to apologize for letting you down. next time i promise to walk on the amtrak tracks should we be put in that position.

matter of fact DC…..i offer extended apologies for disappointing you.

I love how “Lauryn Hill” has become a verb.

Thanks Benevere for the tip

Brew Bits: DMX Moved To Mental Health Unit


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in brew bits, DMX | Posted on 28-12-2010

It’s been quite the rough patch for DMX. (Sidebar: at what point does a rough patch just become life?) The Phoenix New Times reports the incarcerated rapper has been moved to a mental health unit at an Arizona State Prison Complex facility. Earlier this month, Earl Simmons was sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty to violating the terms of his probation. When he was sentenced, the judge said she believes he has “an undiagnosed mental condition,” possibly bi-polar disorder. Apparently, Dark Man X tried to beat up some reporter years ago who dared ask about the state of his mental health. So, I’d say the judge is probably on to something here, huh?

This is the 13th jail/prison stint for DMX. Maybe he’ll get the help he needs now.

Obama Is “Team Mike Vick”


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Barack Obama, Brew News, michael vick | Posted on 27-12-2010

President Obama is riding the Michael Vick bandwagon. The President called Jeffrey Lurie –the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles– and congratulated him and the team for giving Vick a second chance after his prison stint for dogfighting.

NBC’s Peter King says Lurie told him that “the president was passionate about the fact that it’s rarely a level playing field for prisoners once they leave jail. And he said the message was, what the Eagles had done with Vick was important for society.” Um, okay, I’ll agree with the prez but you can’t just go hiring prisoners all willy nilly and such. Anyway, critics say (cuz they always got somethin’ to say) that Obama’s call should have come a year ago when the Eagles first signed Vick.

Meanwhile, a White House spokesman now says the President called Lurie in the first place to talk about using alternative energy at Lincoln Financial Field, where the Eagles play, and Vick came up during that conversation. Sounds like there’s some damage control going on there…darn PETA people…
