UNEASY LIES THE HEAD THAT WEARS THE CROWN: PRESIDENT OBAMA IS TIRED.




Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


I was reading an Associated Press article this morning about how President Obama’s first year as President has left him… tired. Ya think?

"That weight was particularly striking during the president's exhaustive, three-month review of the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan. Images of a visibly tired Obama, his black hair now flecked with gray, greeting the bodies of fallen soldiers at Dover Air Force Base and walking through rows of headstones at Arlington National Cemetery sparked rumors that he was skipping meals and losing weight.

Not true, the 48-year-old Obama said. His weight never fluctuates more than five pounds and he still wears the same clothes he wore when got married 17 years ago. But the gravity of war did take its toll in other ways."
Snapshot of President Obama’s Year
1. Banking and automobile industry failout bailout;
2. Unemployment rate at a record high;
3. Resurrection of the universal healthcare bill
4. Ordering the deployment of tens of thousands of U.S. troops to Afghanistan
5. Visiting 21 countries in the span of 10 foreign trips
6. Cherry on top: failed, but dangerously close, Christmas day Al-Qaeda terrorist attack attempt on U.S. soil by an unusal suspect: a wealthy Nigerian-born, European-educated Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab

If the President wasn’t tired, I would be more than a little concerned to say the least.

The article also touches on the perks Obama has been able to enjoy as President. The biggest being the fact that this is the first time Obama has lived with his family, full-time since he began his political career thirteen years ago. The President cherishes the fact that he gets the opportunity to eat breakfast with his two daughters before they head off to school.

On a another note, in recent months some early supporters of the President have now become his main detractors. Critics say that the President decision-making since entering the Oval Office is in stark contrast to his election platform.


Whatever clever!


More than half of the President’s Snapshot Year list are problems that originated from the previous Bush Administration.


As I said in a previous post, many people expected Obama to part the red sea when he entered the Oval Office. He’s been in office less than a year, give him some time people!


In related news, Abu Bakr Al-Qirbi, the Foreign Minister of Yemen says that hundreds of Al-Qaeda militants have been planning terror attacks from Yemen.


Something to think about, it has been reported that Abdulmutalla  visited Al-Qaeda in Yemen in this past and he was even in Yemen just days before his failed Christmas terrorist attack aboard a Northwest Airline flight headed to Detroit.

*UPDATE* VIDEO OF MARY KNUCKLING UP KENDU/I LOVE THE FOOLISHNESS: MARY J. ROCKS KENDU'S JAW TO THE WHITE MEAT AT ALBUM RELEASE PARTY


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


*UPDATE* VIDEO OF MJB KNUCKLING UP KENDU




According to the New York Post, the queen of Hip-Hop Soul, R&B star Mary J. Blige (aka MJB, when she's feeling gangsta) rocked her husband/manager, Kendu Issac to sleep (ROCK-A-BYE BABY!) last night at her "Stronger" album release party.

Mary J. Blige punched husband Kendu Isaacs in the face at her record release party at club M2 Tuesday night. The singer slugged Isaacs, drawing blood, after she thought he was flirting with a waitress. "She turned to him and was screaming, 'You're not going to ruin my night,' " our witness says. "They got up in each other's faces before someone tried to separate them, at which point she shoved the guy aside, pulled back and popped [Isaacs] in the face." The source said Blige, Isaacs and their entourage were whisked through a door to the attached club Pink, which was closed. Our witness relates, "She was yelling at him, 'What are you gonna do, Chris Brown me?' Four of her bodyguards and two of the club's kept them apart." Isaacs was kicked out. Blige went to the bathroom to fix her hair and makeup, but soon fled, creating an uncomfortable scene for partygoers Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Busta Rhymes. Her rep said only, "People lie and don't know what they're talking about."

I know this may come off as insensitive, but I LIVE AND BREATHE for this type of foolishness ...ESPECIALLY when celebrities of Mary's magnitude are involved.

LOL at Mary saying to Kendu, "[w]hat are you gonna do, Chris Brown me?" *Sidebar: Chris, you know you done phucked up when your name is used as an adjective to describe domestic violence*

Damn, witnesses say Mary's babe-bro even had to knuckle Kendu up. He's lucky her sister Tonya wasn't in the vicinty...she probably would have got to busting off her gun in that piece. Yall know she probably got at least one of dem bad boys with her at all times just in case things get "hectic."

GEORGE MICHAEL DIES AT AGE 70



Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


George Michael, the popular host of Washington, DC's Sports Machine (Channel 4 WRC-DC/NBC) died yesterday (Decemember 23, 2009) at age 70.

Washington Post: “George Michael, 70, a high-rated and hyperanimated Washington sportscaster whose extensive use of game highlights from across the country on his nationally syndicated show has now become the norm in the industry, died Thursday at Sibley Memorial Hospital. He had chronic lymphocytic leukemia.”
As a kid, I remember my family only owning one TV and my brother and I would always fight to the death over the remote. He wanted to watch George Michael’s Sport Machine (keep in mind this was before ESPN existed) and I wanted to watch anything but that.


I was about 15 when I was forced to watch another episode of Sport Machine, when suddenly………………… a young, cute, pre-tat-tat-tat-up pre-cornrow Allen Iverson's (Georgetown vs. Who Cares)  game was being featured on the show. Needless to say, I was officially hooked on him the show.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE FROM DC...(if this song "cranks!"): PLEASURE COVERS "SANTA CLAUSE IS COMING TO TOWN"

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


If you can sit through this video of this lanky bamma-ass dude doing the cabbage patch (clown stop it!) while mouthing the entire lyrics to the song…your ears will be treated to the musical stylings of Pleasure’s version (the former all female Go-Go band) of “Santa Clause is Coming to Town.”


This song as my synthetic-full-sewn-in-weave rocking (wheredeydodatat?) co-worker would say, “CRANKS!”


Translation: This is a really great song; I get super excited when I hear it; and it causes me to start dancing at work while my fellow co-workers look on in disgust/utter bewilderment as I make a complete fool of myself.

"All right now we going to send this one out to my girl Kandi and also doing it on down for Boogie too, can’t forget about Shaunie and Juanie Juan and the rest that crew, also doing it on down for Turtle, can’t forget Shelly and Toya too…and the whooooooole Stone Rigde crew."



For our readers who live in the DC metropolitan area, you know this song is played a minimum of 50 times per day on the local radio stations during the Christmas season. Enjoy!

ALANIA REED HALL-AMINI DIES AT AGE 63


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to EURweb.com, actress Alania Reed Hall-Amin, best known for her portrayal as "Rose" from NBC's hit series 227, has died at the age of 63. The cause of death was reportedly related to breast cancer.


Although Reed died in November, information regarding her death was only recently made public.


*Singing* "Where there's, no place like home, when you're family is around, you're never alone..." Mrs. Reed Hall-Amini will definitely be missed by her family, friends and legions of fans.


We need to find a cure for this disease, it's taking so many of our grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, etc...


Although I will look back on 2009 with fond memories because I achieved one of my dreams, I will also remember this year because of the many people that I lost that I truly love and admire --both famous (MJ) and non-famous (my Uncle Richard). Gone but never forgotten!

BRITTANY MURPHY DIES AT THE AGE OF 32



Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

Actress Brittany Murphy has died at the age of 32. According to TMZ,
Brittany Murphy died early this morning after she went into full cardiac arrest and could not be revived, multiple sources tell TMZ.
She was 32.

A 911 call was made at 8:00 AM from a home in Los Angeles that is listed as belonging to her husband, Simon Monjack, the Los Angeles City Fire Department tells TMZ.

We're told Murphy was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Murphy starred in such films as "Clueless," "8 Mile," and "Don't Say a Word."
Story developing ...
Wow, this is such a shock! I’ve been a fan of hers since she starred in Clueless (“rolling wit da homies…”).

Besides the fact that Brittany had lost a considerable amount of weight in the last couple of years, I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there was definitely a change in her demeanor.

Brittany seemed to have such a promising acting career, starring in such successful movies as: Clueless; 8 Mile; Just Married; Sin City; and Happy Feet, but in the last few years you saw less and less of her on the big screen.

We here at The Chick Fix, would like to send our condolences to all of her family, friends and fans. She was a shinning star whose light was put out much too soon.

WHEN IT ALL FALLS DOWN: CHRIS HENRY'S AUTOPSY REPORT REVEALS "BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA" CAUSED DEATH


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to Essence.com,
An autopsy conducted by the Mecklenburg Medical Examiner reveals that NFL wide receiver Chris Henry died of blunt force trauma to the head due to falling from the truck driven by fiancee Loleini Tonga.

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police spokeswoman says Tonga pulled over after Henry fell off to assist him. Though the incident was deemed an "accident", police have not yet cleared Tonga, reports USA Today.

Meanwhile a friend of Tonga's is stepping out in defense of the 25-year-old mom. "I know people will say, 'Why didn't she stop?'" Lori Williams told the paper. "We don't know ... but in the times that I knew Loleini -- and I knew Loleini -- she would not harm anyone."
Wow, it’s amazing how life can drastically change within the blink of an eye. Chris and his fiancé Loleini went from planning an upcoming wedding to Loleini and Chris’ family now having to plan Chris’ funeral arrangements. This is such a sad situation and our hearts and prayers continue to go out to Chris’ family and friends.

FBI TO RELEASE MICHAEL JACKSON'S CLASSIFIED FILE TO THE PUBLIC


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to TMZ, the FBI is set to release classified files they kept on musical icon, Michael Jackson spanning a decade, this Monday, December 21, 2009.


Jackson’s file reportedly contains 333 pages of documents dating back to 1993. The documents are said to contain information relating to Jackson’s molestation cases in 1993 and 2004 as well as numerous extortion attempts.


The FBI has been known to release classified documents that they keep on “persons of interest” once that person has died.


Similarly, they released a classified file they kept on Coretta Scott-King shortly after she died.


Many say the FBI started keeping tabs on Scott's every movement after Martin Luther King Jr.'s was assassinated because they thought she may retailate or be conspiring with the communist movement to avenge her husband's death.


The FBI's Atlanta office later noted in reference to their monitoring of Scott that "no information has come to the attention of Atlanta which indicates a propensity for violence or affiliation with subversive elements..."


The alphabet boys probably got us all under surveillance. Shout out to Jeezy, ha!


Seriously, when will we FINALLY let this man rest! I mean come on, this file will only rehash discussion on those infamous molestation allegations. I have to admit, I’m only pressed slightly interested in reading about some of the extortion attempts against Michael.

*UPDATED* IT WAS ALL GOOD JUST A WEEK AGO: TINA FILES FOR DIVORCE FROM MATTHEW


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to CBS News, Celestine "Tina” Knowles, mother of singer Beyonce and Solange, has filed for divorce from her husband Matthew Knowles. Matthew also manages both his daughter's careers.
“…papers were filed in Harris County, Texas, last month to end their 29-year marriage. The documents state that the couple "ceased to live together as husband and wife on or about January 5, 2009."

The news comes after Matthew was hit with a paternity lawsuit in October, in which a then-six-months-pregnant Los Angeles woman named Alexsandra Wright claims he is the father of her unborn child.


The celebrity news website [TMZ] speculates that large amounts of money could be up for grabs in the divorce, as Matthew has been Beyonce's manager for years. Tina is involved in her daughter's lucrative career as well - she was the costume designer for Destiny's Child and she and her daughter created the "House of Dereon" clothing line.


The two have been married since 1980…”
Update: Tina and Matthew Knowles have released a joint statement regarding their pending divorce.
"The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one. We remain friends, parents, and business partners. If anyone is expecting an ugly messy fight, they will be sadly disappointed. We ask for your respect of our privacy as we handle this matter."
I sure didn’t see this one coming. Although it has been rumored for years that Matthew has had more than his fair share of loose booty industry women trying to get ahead, I really never thought Celestine (Come again? With a name like Celestine, you sure you ain’t Nigerian Mama Tina?) would ever divorce Matthew.


I guess Mama Tina is "on to the next one" for the new year, I ain't even mad at ya!

I'M IN TROUBLE, NEED BAIL MONEY: LIL WAYNE AND 11 OTHERS DETAINED BY U.S. BORDER PATROL


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to Billboard.com, Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter and 11 others traveling with him, were detained in Texas on Friday, December 18, 2009, when U.S. Border Patrol officers found marijuana on two of Carter’s tour buses enroute to a concert venue.
The tour buses were stopped in Falfurrias, about 80 miles southwest of Corpus Christi, where the rapper is scheduled to perform Sunday night.


Lil Wayne played in Hidalgo on Thursday. A few minutes before the doors were to open for his show in Laredo on Friday, it was announced that the show was postponed. A marketing manager for the venue told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times that it would be rescheduled.

A drug dog initially detected the odor of narcotics on one of the buses, the CBP said in a news release. Marijuana was found during secondary inspections, the agency said.

Lil Wayne's music manager Cortez Bryant and talent agent Cara Lewis did not immediately return phone messages left at their offices.


The good news is that Wayne was later released and was not cited. He is also said to be performing tonight in Corpus Christi to make up for the concert that was cancelled yesterday due to his detainment.


Come on Wayne, even if you weren’t in possession of the marijuana and/or were unaware that people was gettin’ blazed © Jodi from Baby Boy of the presence of an illegal substance on your tour buses, you gots to be more careful!


You’re already going to the pen in February and you really do gots kids to feed, so smarten Weezy F Baby, please don’t have no’mo babies say the baby!

Supposedly reps for Universal recording artist, Kid Cudi released a statement regarding his early departure from Lady Gaga’s "Monster Ball" tour.

"Kid Cudi has decided to take an early leave of absence from Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour, in order to balance his schedule surrounding the recording of his next album and acting commitments.

Recently rocker Courtney Love lost custody of her daughter Frances Bean Cobain (her father is the late grunge phenom Kurt Cobain). Supposedly Frances chose to live with her grandmother, Wendy O’Connor (Kurt’s mother).

Well according to New York’s Daily News, Love did not take too kindly to her daughter’s decision and did what any basehead with a computer parent that lost custody of her child would do…get her shit together and prove she is a fit parent (that would be too much like right) bitch her daughter out on facebook.


Love wrote, “I hate to spund cold but any kid of mine who pulls this s— has lost her position. She was deceptive she lied and shes lying to herself … my daihgter is not always honest.”


Good Golly Miss Molly! As Tupac once rapped, “you wonder why they call you psycho bitch…”


Courtney, please get your act together and learn how to use spell check, STAT! I commend Frances for being mature enough to make such a tough, but brave decision.

The cast of "The Game" will likely be on Monique's show to announce they are moving to the BET Network (they finally got something right).


YES!!! As Miss Sophie so eloquently said, "...I know'd there is a God. I know'd there is a God..."


Now if we can work on getting some kind of decent Girlfriends finale, all will be right in the world!

PART II OF RIHANNA'S INTERVIEW WITH DIANE SAWYER



Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



In this 2nd snippet of Rihanna's interview with Diane Sawyer (which airs tonight on ABC's 20/20 at 10:00 p.m. ET), Rihanna goes further into detail about the domestic violence incident that occurred between her and Chris Brown this past February.


Rih-Rih, explains how their relationship blossomed from being best friends to quickly becoming a couple.


Rihanna says they're relationship was so intense that they became "OBSESSED" with it, which is never a good thing when two people are as young as Rihanna and Chris.


You couple that with one (or both-- Sawyer eludes to Rihanna possibly opening up tonight for the first time about growing up in an abusive home) of the parties in the relationship coming from an abusive home life; then you add the constant spotlight; each party involved being the object of not only their millions of fan's affections, but also their peers; you throw in a little jealously (in the coming days after the February 2009 incident, many speculated that the incident was triggered when Rihanna saw a series of text messages between Chris and an up and coming Canadian R&B star); and you have all the makings for an incident like the one that occurred this past February.


When Diane asked Rihanna how she feels about Chris today, Rihanna says, "I love and care about him. I'm concerned about him. I want him to do well. I want him to grow up."


I know I mentioned this in a previous related post, but I have to STRESS how IMPRESSED I am with Rihanna speaking so candid and HEARTFELT about the situation.


I think that was one of the biggest problems people had with Chris' interview with Larry King. Many spectators commented that Chris' interview was pointless because he never really addressed the REAL issues during his interview. They basically said that he didn’t tell the public anything that they didn’t already know.


I really feel for this girl, I mean like she is a family member or something. She seems to be as Diane noted, extremely, "STRONG." All I will say is (lol, like I haven’t written a phucking dissertation above...what can I say…yall know I'm long winded like that!), "THIS TOO SHALL PASS."


Being the nosey little Chick that I am, I’ll be dissecting her entire interview tonight...from her body language to the movement in her eyes...aint nothing getting past me in that interview!

JAY-Z ANNOUNCES BLUE PRINT 3 TOUR DATES



Posted: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to Jay-Z's official facebook page, Mr. Z as THICK WANKSTA aka Rush Limbaugh so affectionately referred to him, will kick off his North American tour in the hometown of Ms. Toni "I specialize in results" Childs (dag I miss Girlfriends), Fresno California!  


I see Jay will ACTUALLY be stopping in D.C. this time around.


 *mimicking Jerome from Martin* POLOGIES TO YOU B-More readers...but I'm still a little salty about that one. How do you  do a show in Baltimore and NOT in D.C...that's BLASPHEMY (I kid)...but you get my point.


Oh and I'm O-SO-SICED that the show is far enough in advance that not only may I be able to afford some tickets...but I might be able to even splurge on some good seats! Let the church sing, "JESUSSSSSS is Lord, he won't let you down." LOL!

NEW VIDEO FIX: JAY-Z'S "EMPIRE STATE OF MIND" FEAT. ALICIA KEYS & GHOSTFACE'S "BABY" FEAT. RAHEEM DEVAUGHN

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne




Check out new videos below from Jay-Z, Empire State of Mind featuring Alicia Keys and Ghostface, Baby featuring Raheem Devaughn.








Empire State of Mind: I like the concept of the video, but I was expecting the video to be high energy. Put it this way, that song knocks so HARD in my car (it has been on HEAVY rotation in my car for the past month, (e.g. I play the song INCESSANTLY that now the CD skips)), that once when I was driving and blasting the song so loudly while simultaneously singing the song just as loudly, that the Officer Ross (the cops) pulled me over...NO LIE...lol!


 Baby: I REALLY like the video. Maybe I'm bias, but you put Ghostface in a video and it's usually a winner in my book...*mimicking Jay* "just my thoughts man...just what I was feeling at the time." Question: Raheem, you're a sanger (e.g. you can really blow), you don't need that WACKA$$ autotune sh*t. In my opinion, it messes up the flow of the song.

IT WAS ALL GOOD JUST A WEEK AGO EDITION: BEANIE SIGEL DISSES JAY-Z WITH "AVERAGE CAT"





Now I took my precious time transcribing the lyrics (literally lost sleep…me tired!), so if you re-post these lyrics please credit the source…which would be MOI!
This aint no diss record, this a real record
How it feel to get exposed, don’t you feel naked
I was the fly on the wall

The sh*t I witness
I could say shit that make B look at you different
And my gangster was never on trial, but I was,
Stood up tall, no snitching
But the rapper Shawn called the police on me,
Cause I was front row at the Blue Print 3
Sheesh!
I just wanted to see him MC
And reminisce when we was the R-O-C
But he called the C-O-Ps (*mimicking Gucci mane* WELL DAMN!)

Not only that he brought in the F-E-Ds (Dag Jay, say it ain’t so!)
So that’s telling me F- U-Si
So F-U too
And F Bleek three
Beanie's ranting after the song goes a little something like this...
See I think I held my tongue long enough… about this whole Roca-a-fella situation…I brought the street cred to that…I fought all them battles me…that’s who…Jadakiss, Nas, Dipset…

This ain’t about a dollar or me hating on you cuz…cause I never asked you for a dollar


When I came home from jail doing my year and a day and you ain’t never come ONE DAY (Beans seems to be pretty hot about this particular occurrence...his voice is cracking and it's giving me just a hint of tears forming in the upper corner of Beans eyes) to see me… not one picture day…a letter


You even asked me did I want some money and I told you I don’t want your money…but you was in a position to make me get my own money…


How Tupac say…”I ain’t mad at cha.”


And don’t get it phucked up, this aint a green light for everybody to start making a diss Jay-Z record..Nah I still got love for a n****…I got a knot in my chest that need to get unloosened…when you got love for motherphucker it don’t go away that easy…many people going to walk in and out of your life but only real friends leave footprints on your heart dawg but I think yours is fading in the sand…”
Listen to Beanie's "Average Cat" Diss to Jay-Z HERE!


Dag Jay, what happened to ...If every nigga in your clique is rich your clique is rugged. Nobody would fall cause everyone would be each others crutches..."


Incidents like what the Broad Street Bully is alleging in this song regarding Jay is one of the primary reasons why I could NEVER be a Jay-Z stan because there have been FAR TOO MANY claims of disloyalty against Jay-Z by people some may call disgruntle ex-employees and who others feel were loyal soldiers in Jay's army.


Is it just me or does Jay just seems to have a long history/pattern of literally being “on to the next one” when it comes to person(s) who either help him get put on (Jaz-O, DeHaven, Dame/Biggs and Foxy, just to name a few) or to person(s) in his Roc-a-fella camp who helped defend the "Roc" when everybody and they grandmamma was firing shots at the Roc (Peedi Crack, Tru-Life, Amil, and NOW… Beanie Siegel).


You know what they say, where there is smoke…

I LOVE THE FOOLISHNESS!: ANNUAL PRE-HALLOWEEN DRAG QUEEN RACE IN DC!

Run girls, RUNNNNN!

Haaa!

Yaaasss!!!

I can't and I won't!

The annual Drag Queen Heel Race took place this past Tuesday, October 27, 2009 in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C. and the race was BEYOND entertaining to say the least!

Your girl Roxxanne Roxxanne loves you Chicks and Dicks somethin' terrible because I risked life and limb for you guys the other night in the rain (Translation: my fresh press out was ruined because my edges and roots got all wet and sweated out trying to take as many pictures as I could you guys in the rain.), so enjoy!

The Drag Queen Heel Race is traditionally held the Tuesday before Halloween. The annual event features drag queens decked out in elaborate costumes as they race up 17th Street in Northwest, DC. 

The race always attracts a large crowd eager to cheer them on and this past Tuesday was no different, despite the rain.

Enjoy the ALL the pictures Chicks and Dicks, and have a safe and happy Halloween!


You took the words right out of my mouth!

The hair on "her" chest looks like taco meat!
Check out MORE pictures, after the break!
