Lock Him Up for Lying!

Thanks to Miss Cocoa Luv (Check her out on WBMB  every thursday 7-9pm) The Smoking Gun broke the story that Akon has reportedly lying about his time in prison. The “Konvicted Felon” is more like fraud, a fossy, a B****CLAT IDIOT! Here’s an exerpt:

“Akon’s ad nauseum claims about his criminal career and resulting prison time have been, to an overwhelming extent, exaggerated, embellished, or wholly fabricated, an investigation by The Smoking Gun has revealed. Police, court, and corrections records reveal that the entertainer has created a fictionalized backstory that serves as the narrative anchor for his recorded tales of isolation, violence, woe, and regret. Akon has overdubbed his biography with the kind of grit and menace that he apparently believes music consumers desire from their hip-hop stars.

While the performer’s rap sheet does include a half-dozen arrests, Akon has only been convicted of one felony, for gun possession. That 1998 New Jersey case ended with a guilty plea, for which the singer was sentenced to three years probation. Another 1998 bust, this one in suburban Atlanta, has been seized upon by Akon and transformed into the big case that purportedly sent him to prison (thanks to his snitching cohorts) for three fight-filled years. In reality, Akon was arrested for possession of a single stolen BMW and held in the DeKalb County jail for several months before prosecutors dropped all charges against him.

So there was no conviction. There was no prison term between 1999 and 2002. And he was never “facing 75 years,” as the singer claimed in one videotaped interview.”

Gal Bruck Out!

April 16, 2008 at 6:05 pm | Posted in Caribbean Style | 3 Comments

So this past Friday I celebrated my birthday at Gypsy Tea Room. Caribbean Fuse Team started Caribbean Fridays in Manhattan a few weeks ago, and their e-mail blast said “Celebrate your birthday, you and your entourage free all night” I always travel with an entourage of a least five of my friends, but for my b-day I had an extra twenty or so people. Well the promoters kept their word ‘cause we were all free and didn’t have to wait in line!

 

Gypsy Tea Room is a cute club with two floors. Reggae & Dancehall on one floor and Soca & Calypso on the next (I didn’t make it to the Soca room, too tipsy to make it up and down the stairs). The vibes was really nice, it was a nice crowd, no fights (there almost was though, a clumsy guy attempted to step to my friend after he spilled his own drink. I could see why he was mad though, that drink was probably $15, poor thing) Callie B from Irie Jam was spinning some nice lover’s rock and ol’ school dancehall. I felt like he really wanted to play some dance tunes, but didn’t want the party to get too outta order, seeing that it was a small space.  I’m glad they move it to Club Element on the Lower East Side the venue is a little bigger so I & I have more room to bruck out!

Met with boos upon announcement as the new Miss Jamaica Universe 2008, April Jackson remained humbled as dissatisfied patrons cheered for runner up contestant Doneika Plowright. R&B diva Keshia Cole graced the stage for a performance singing hits like “Love”, “I Changed My Mind” and “Just Like You”.

Prizes for the new Miss Jamaica Universe include $1 million cash courtesy of title sponsors WorldWise Partners; a fully loaded BMW 120i courtesy of Stewart Motors; a trip to Vietnam to represent Jamaica in the 2008 Miss Universe pageant; guaranteed modeling contract with Pulse valued at one $150,000 over two years; lifetime gym membership at Gymkhana; Miss Universe wardrobe courtesy Uzuri, and Keandra Francis; accessories valued at $100,000 courtesy of Bling Bling; and active wear from Puma Jamaica collection among other prizes

Miss Mikelah’s say: I really don’t know why she was met with boo, she seem like a good candidate. I think it was petty of the patrons to boo, she’s gonna represent Jamaica anywhere she go, so they should be proud of her regardless.

Usher – Love in this Club Video

After leaking various singles and making a hit with this one, Usher released the video for “Love in This Club” yesterday. I’m a huge Usher fan, but I have to be honest, I wasn’t crazy about the song, not because it wasn’t good, it just wasnt different enough for me. Usher is usually a trendsetter pushing it to the next level, but for me this is nothing different. However, being the fan that I am it grew on me (I still won’t be adding to my i-pod playlist, but I’d bump to it)

The Video is just like “Yeah” to me, but it is a club single so I’ll let him have that. Appearances by Diddy, Kanye West, Robin Thicke and leading lady Keri Hilson (Peep the end when he grabs her hair from behind…so sexy!)
