You better stop playing!

Beyonce's little sister, Solange was spotted hanging out with Cee-Lo at the New & Improved Miami Live at Santo in Miami Beach, Florida on Wednesday night. Word around the web is Cee-Lo is working with Solange on her new album. Why in the world does she even bother? The same goes for Kelly.
Here's Usher at Macy's department store in Macy's Herald Square in New York City once again peddling that toilet water that he calls a fragrance. Dude...come on now...
You better stop playing!
And look! Fans actually came out to see him this time. I bet that made his day, bless his heart. FYI, Usher's in-store appearance at Macy's in his hometown of Atlanta last week was pretty much...well, let's just say more people showed up to this time around.
Last Tuesday night, Keyshia Cole celebrated the release of her sophomore album, Just Like You--in stores now-- at Club Avalon in New York City. Hmmm, for some reason, I thought I'd see more celebrities there. The un-star studded event was hosted by NYC's Hot 97 host Angela Martinez.
Well, well, well, well, long time no see I say! Look yall! It's JT Money. Former member of Luke Campbell's raunchy Miami-based group, The 2 Live Crew. There also was a half-Black/half-Chinese dude in the group as well, but I can't think of his name right about now...and I sure don't feel like looking it up.
Video vixen-turned-radio and television personality, Melyssa Ford graces the September-October 2007 issue of BlackMen magazine. The former vid vixen can now add actress to her resume. She has a small role in the sequel to 'Two Can Play That Game' called, of course, 'Three Can Play That Game.' Vivica A. Fox produces and stars in the film along with Terri J. Vaughn, Jazmine Lewis, Tony Rock and Kellita Smith.
Because I consider the pic I have of Bootz in Smooth magazine to be NSFW (Not Safe For Work), for those of you who want to see it, it's after the jump.
Ughhhhh, what the hell is you trying to do, Bootz?!
Usher and his uncle Tameka were snapped by the paparazzi as the left their Manhattan hotel on Wednesday. As I mentioned before, Usher has revealed that he and his hubby are expecting a boy in December. Although this will be Usher's first child, it makes son number three as well as celeb son number one for Tameka. Speaking of which, I came across this hilarious comment made by a poster on Usherforever.com regarding Usher's soon to be celebrity seed: "I'm reminded of comedian Adelle Givens when she said when you have a baby by a celebrity and you also have other kids, that celebrity kid gonna get special treatment. "Yall shut ur lil asses up ...except for you Usher Junior. You talk all you want to and can have some ice cream too..yes we can go to Disneyland in the morning...HELL NAW the rest of yall can't go! Care yall lil asses to school!"
Talk show host/former model, Tyra Banks was spotted leaving her home in New York City yesterday. Is it me, or does it look like Tyra has joined the celebrity baby boom brigade? We all know, Usher's hubby is pregnant, but damn Tyra, is there something you want to share with us? LOL!
Diddy can sell clothes. Diddy can sell fragrances. Hell, Diddy can even sell a couple of monotone-sounding records. But one thing Diddy hasn't been able to sell lately, is a tantalizing plate of collard greens, crispy, buttermilk-dipped fried chicken, savory yams and a nice hunk of melt-in-your-mouth cornbread--and I ain't talking about Jiffy--at a reasonable price. This and a host of other factors are to blame for the shut down of Diddy's restuarant, 'Justin's in the Flatiron District of New York City.
On Tuesday I reported to you guys that there was a rumor claiming Diddy's Justin's restaurant in NYC had closed its doors. Well, that rumor has been confirmed. Yes, Diddy's restaurant has served its last meal...and yes, the neo-soul eatery has shut its NYC doors. However, according to a spokesperson for the media-mogul, although the building in the Flatiron District is closed, Combs is looking to 'relocate elsewhere in Manhattan.'
"Bad Boy is seeking a larger footprint for the restaurant in the New York City area, as the size and location of the restaurant no longer fit the Justin's brand," an official statement said. "The company sees the larger Justin's Restaurant in Atlanta, which takes up most of a city block, as the prototype for the new New York City location. Bad Boy representatives are evaluating a number of options for a larger space in some of New York City's prime traffic areas."
The restaurant, named after Combs' first-born son and inspired by Combs' grandmother, Jesse Smalls, served its last meal Sept. 24, but will be open for previously booked private functions.
