2012 Olympic Torch

I absolutely love the Olympics....I watch any and every event that comes on tv. It just makes you proud to be an American when you see us dominating EVERY event. Lol.  The aluminium torch was created by UK design studio,   Barber Osgerby . It is perforated with 8,000 holes, each representing one of the torchbearers. Made from a golden aluminium alloy. The creative team behind the London Olympic torch has won the prestigious Design of the Year award 2012. The Olympic torch, along with the other shortlisted designs, is on show at the Design Museum in London until July 4.

Cissy Houston writing tell all Whitney book

According to the New York Times, Cissy Houston met with book publishers this week to begin plans on a Whitney tell all book.  “It’s going to be the bad, it’s going to be the good," Cissy Houston said to the Times, describing it further as "the real and definitive story of her daughter... There are so many lies out there and I want to dispel all of those lies." SOURCE I dunno how I feel about Cissy writing a tell all book, I mean does she really know Whitney's deep down secrets, will she speak truthfully and honestly about Whitney's life, or will she try to sugarcoat it and protect her image...as any mother will? Its reported that Cissy would use the assistance of a ghost writer. Hmmmm....intrigued to see how this pans out.

Star Jones wants you to boycott Basketball Wives

Star Jones is just one of the many people appalled at the behavior of the women on Basketball Wives this season. It seems as if every episode has had a physical altercation almost. Well most people displeased with the show this season simply tweet their frustration of stop watching the show, Star Jones is using her celebrity to stage a full out boycott of the show. Star vented on Twitter about the show after last weeks episode in which Evelyn Lozada jumped on and over a table in an attempt to attack Jennifer Williams. Star Jones tweeted “It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH. She further went on to say that: And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity, I’m asking

Brandy feat Chris Brown x Put It Down

Brandy new album is shaping up to be something serious!!! Her comeback is going to be beyond successful. First teaming up with Monica on "It All Belongs To Me" and now teaming up with Chris Brown on "Put It Down". The beat is sick, Brandy sings and raps a lil on the upbeat high energy song. This isnt your typical Brandy song but it bangs. Chris Brown shows of his rap skills ... I love the song. Cant wait for her album 

*New Music* BOB feat Nicki Minaj x Outta My Mind

BOB teamed up with Nicki Minaj on his new album Strange Clouds  for the single "Outta My Mind"...the beat is out of this world. It has a futuristic song. Nicki snaps on this song...she is proving that she is serious rapper still. I cant wait for Strange Clouds to come out.  My favorite line from the song is from Nicki “You know I graduated summa cum laude/ That’s why they thinkin’ I’m Illuminati,”

*New Music* Mack Maine/Talib/Kweli/Lil Wayne x Celebrate

I absolutely dig this new Weezy track...its so upbeat and happy. The song also has Mack Maine and Talib Kweli...no word whose project the song will appear on. The song first premiered on Power 105 with DJ Clue "Pop a bottle and celebrate we made it to a new day"

Glee remembers Whitney

Glee recently aired a tribute episode to Whitney Houston, and while the cast is extremely talented not everyone has the voice to cover Whitney Houston. Overall the episode was good, but in my opinion the best song by far was the opening number, "How Will I Know" which featured Mercedes, Rachel, Kurt, and Santana. Check it out below. 

@ProphPeezy x Wool Over My Eyes (TammyTalks Review)

Its about that time again....Milwaukee native Proph will be releasing his new album Wool Over My Eyes on May 1. Proph was gracious enough to send me over an advance copy of the album to review. The album is jam packed with crazy beats and bars. Proph is such a lyrical rapper but has the finesse to easily ride every beat he encounters. This is such a versatile album...there is something for everyone on there. From "Million Dolla Slave" to "Newer Bitch" to "In My 96" you are sure to find a song that suits your musical taste. There are songs for the true hip hop head, songs for the radio, and songs for the lyrical music lover.  Here is a leak off of the album...thank me later My favorite tracks Underdog paints the picture of a the plight of someone trying to create a better life for themselves. Sucka MC's is a fun yet boastful song where Proph tells of his success both in the rap game and in his everyday life. Wool Over My Eyes is true

TLC remembers Left Eye

Today marks the 10th anniversary of rapper Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes's death. TLC is still on the dopest female groups in my opinion. Chili and T Boz reently did an interview with Essence Magazine recanting the horror they felt on the day they lost their sister 1o years ago. T-BOZ : She died a day before my birthday. I remember everything. I was with security in my Porsche and I said to them, ‘I feel like I’m going to get in a wreck and I want to go home.’ The driver said: ‘Well that’s on the other side of town.’ I didn’t care; I wanted to go home. I just felt something was going to happen to me, but it wasn’t me it was Lisa. I was sitting in a rocking chair in my daughter’s room after putting her down when I got a call from Chilli. She was screaming. I had just gotten out the hospital from fighting sickle cell so I had to be careful about getting upset. Everybody was trying to keep me calm. I remember staying up all night and Patti Labelle and Missy Elliot calling m

Brian McKnight responds to song backlack

Brian McKnight has always been known for his smooth sultry voice and his gentlemen type songs...well its 2012 and Brian has had a change of heart. It what seems to be a desperate attempt to stay current and relevant, Brian released a Youtube video to a song called "How Your Pussy Works (If You're Ready To Learn". The vulgar song is extremely graphic and completely not what Brian is used to doing.  Check out the song below. Well the song didnt go over as well as Brian hoped, he has been blasted by fans, and a target of criticism on Twitter. Brian took to his Twitter to defend himself and the song, issuing the following tweets, "It's funny how we listen and let our kids listen to songs about killing people and selling drugs and calling women bitches. I wrote this song crude as it may be about satisfying all women and look what happened. It's for all those women who keep getting disappointed by their partners period it was a parody about that.

Think Like A Man Review x TammyTalks

Hundreds of thousands of people flocked to the movies on 4/20 to see Steve Harvey's movie Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man,  and yes I was one of those people. Lol. The movie was actually better and funnier than I anticipated. Without giving away too much of the movie, its basically about a group of men and a group of women who are using the tactics in the book "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" to keep their mate happy. However, we see along the way that using tactics can backfire on you if you aren't smooth enough. Now lets get to the cast: The Men: Kevin Hart aka Cedric : Kevin Hart is a man that is "happy divorced", it seems as if he and his wife are on the brink of divorce and his commentary about divorce is hilarious throughout the entire movie. He definitely is one of the highlights. Terrence J aka Michael : Michaelis a mommas boy that isn't able to tear hisself away from his mom, he does any and everything for her and often puts her before th

BET picks up "Real Husbands of Hollywood"

The Real Husbands of Hollywood was definitely the highlight of the 2011 BET awards. The 3 part skit starred Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, Nelly, Jermaine Dupri, and Bobby Brown. BET has decided to pick up the show and turn into a television series...here is how BET is describing the new show. The “housewives”don’t even know what it means to be a real Hollywood husband. The pressures of spousal stardom are almost too much to bear. Watch the House Husbands air it all out in this semi-scripted reality TV spoof of every fill-in-the-blank Wives franchise. There is no word on when the show will air or who will star in it yet.
