Oh my gosh- what is going on here? Nope, it’s not what you might think. Ashanti hasn’t gone and pulled a Lil Kim or Foxy Brown or Eve or Vivica- ok you get the point (lol). No, this sista has only gone loco on camera and the faux mug shot to your right is a newly released image from the new/remix version of Ashanti’s single “The Way That I Love You”. Word has it the first version was not the “official” but rather just a leaked version to peak interest in the song. Whatever the case, Ashanti tells MTV that her inspiration for this new video was the show “Snapped” which comes on the Oxygen Network. Snapped is about abused women who- you guessed it- SNAP and take matters into their own hands. Expect the new version of the “The Way That I Love You” to debut tomorrow and you have to give it to Ashanti and her camp- they know how to peak the interest off fans and non fans alike. Can’t wait to see this…
Singer Keke Wyatt, best known for taking a knife to her husband’s throat, is back with a new album entitled Ghetto Rose and two new interviews guaranteed to get tongues wagging. AHHA first interviewed Keke who took a swipe at not only Beyonce’s vocals skills but looks as well. Keke laments “If you notice, I’m yellow. My natural hair is the color she dyes her hair. I have the little waist with the big booty. It’s all the same thing but I sing better, so it was their loss. Say I don’t sing better than Beyonce?“ Not content with making ridiculous comments to just AHHA, Keke then took her act on the road and decided to share her brainless ideas on race, skin color and the N word with Essence Magazine writer, Kenya Byrd. You can read both the Essence and AHHA articles on the next page, but I cannot and will not be held responsible for any brain cells you might lose during the course of reading them.
Today’s random celebrity sightings post consists of some of my favorite brown sistas. From Janet Jackson to Melyssa Ford, we have Black Women from all walks of Hollywood life covered. First up however is Keyshia Cole who held her album release party last night. Keyshia is sporting a new shorter do that I really like and it reminds me quite a bit of Rihanna’s new shorter style. Hopefully both these ladies will usher in a less in more look for celebrity sistas when it come to their hair.
It was a busy weekend for Black Hollywood as several celebrity sistas came out to show their support for charitable causes. Beyonce helped feed the homeless while Vivica Fox showed up to lend her time and energies to the Allen Iverson celebrity baseball challenge. But before we get to those events, check out the pics below of Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, and her new significant other. I have no idea what is happening in the pics below, but it looks like one heck of a
fight conversation was going on at the time they were snapped.
Janet is currently in the UK and attended the launch of an exclusive perfume at the Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair, London on Friday evening. Janet, accompanied by her boyfriend Jermaine Dupri, arrived in a white ball gown. The perfume is reported to cost thousands of pounds per bottle. The event organizers went to the trouble of hiring a group of general photographers to snap Janet as she arrived but they were made to sign a disclaimer saying they would not sell any images. One of Janet’s fansites however got their hands on a few and you can check them out below. After the event, Janet returned to her hotel in Mayfair where she changed and went clubbing until the early hours of the morning. It is not known whether Janet will attend any more events whilst in London or how long she plans to stay.
