It’s been 10 years since we lost one of the most beautiful, influential and warm-hearted artists this music world has ever seen. To celebrate her life and remember all of her achievements BET will be airing a special entitled “Aaliyah: One In A Million”. Close friends and admirers to the singer such as Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Patti Labelle and Kelly Rowland will speak during the special.

The special is in conjunction with the networks “25 Days Of Aaliyah” and will air Aug. 25th at 8pm.

Video: ‘Red Nation’ Game ft. Lil Wayne

We told you earlier this week that the MTV and BET networks had banned Game’s video for “Red Nation” due to its gang affiliated overtones, but thank God for the internet.  Game leads a red army in the Parris-directed video; doesn’t this remind you of Jay-Z’s “Run This Town?”  This is the first single from Game’s upcoming album R.E.D. album.

Game’s statement prior to the video’s release:

“No love is lost for BET and MTV,” said Game. “I know they have standards for all ages watching the networks. I didn’t want to change the artistic integrity of the music video and with the amount of people watching videos online, I know that all my fans will still be able to find it.”

Nice way of putting things, Game.  An ignorant response would have been disasterous.  Watch the video below. Do you think it’s too hot for t.v?

The Game Gets Renewed On BET For Season 5!!

As if we all didn’t know that this was inevitable, the hit TV series “The Game” has gotten a renewed contract for 22 episodes on BET for season 5. The show made BET history when they debuted season 4 and a astonishing 7.7 million views tuned in (including myself).

The plot thickens as Melanie has major explaining to discuss with Derwin, Tasha Mack’s estranged love life, Malik’s trouble in paradise, Jason’s wild teen daughter Brittany, and the infamous question that I want answered…will Kelly ever return? This show makes me happy and I’m super excited season 5 is in the works.


Police: DJ Megatron Shot During Weed Sell

It was a very sad yesterday as the world learned about the death of DJ Megatron. A well known personality often seen on BET and heard on Hot97. Police are speaking on the case and saying that DJ Megatron real name Corey McGriff was shot during a marijuana buy. McGriff was merely talking on his cell phone on his way to buy a cigar as well as marijuana when the event occurred.

It’s unknown at the time if the crime was just by chance or a drug deal gone wrong. Police are looking for 3 males that fled the scene and most likely had major involvement in the crime.

Here today, gone tomorrow. R.I.P. DJ Megatron


Tia Mowry Shows Off Her Baby Bump

Tia Mowry-Hardict was spotted looking cute as a button on Access Hollywood.  The soon-to-be mama talked about how she told her husband she was pregnant, being pregnant, and of course, The Game.  Check the highlights:

How are you feeling?

I actually feel great. The first trimester was insane; the nausea kind of got the best of me. I actually wear these nausea bands, they’re bands that people wear on cruise ships and stuff and they’ve been my best friend. They’re in my wardrobe now.

What do people believe you’re having?

Everybody has been saying a boy, boy, boy, boy just by the way I’ve been carrying. Nobody has said a girl, so I can’t wait to find out what’s inside?

How did you tell your husband?

We we’re actually separated at the time because he was shooting the movie “The Day” and I was shooting “The Game.” I just called him up, well actually I sent him a picture of the pregnancy test and it said pregnant of it. He didn’t believe me, he was like no, so I took about 6 or 8 other pregnancy test and he finally was like “ok it’s a done deal.”

Will the child’s name start with a T since all your siblings name does?

No, we’re actually looking at C’s for Corey because that’s my husband’s name.

How much is Kelsey Grammar involved in with “The Game”?

Kelsey is great. He’s showed up on set several times and been apart of the casting process and all that good stuff. He’s such a great, cool, laid-back kind of guy.

On the CW canceling the show and fans campaigning to bring it back

Yeah, that’s the reason that we’re back, it’s because of our fans. They started twitter accounts, they started facebook accounts…Now the woman that actually started the facebook account has been hired by BET and that’s her job. She’s following the show, all the articles that the cast members do and we got to meet her. It’s all because of the fans, that’s the reason why we’re back. I’m still in shock. It’s unbelievable how many viewers we got in out first airing. Our second airing we kind of stayed in there, we had like six million.


Next time one of my favorite shows is being canceled, I’m starting a campaign.
