If I Were A Celebrity Part 1- The Bad Celebrity

May 31, 2008

I am sure many of us, especially those who like to read up on/watch celebrities on Perez Hilton, TMZ, E! and such other sites/channels have wondered what it would be like to be rich and famous and admittedly I have also. So, what would you do if you were rich and famous?

Well I have concluded that there’s a recipe for celebrity. Not becoming one per se but how to maintain your celebrity after getting the fame. First there’s the Bad Celebrity, the Good Celebrity, the Weird Celebrity and on the fence flickering like a candle is the Boring Celebrity.

The Bad Celebrity
This category of celebrity is more effective if you were a child actor or a veritable nobody before you turned sour. Inspirations: Lindsay Lohan (Pre Rehab), David Bonaduce, Foxy Brown, Shannon Daugherty, Gary Dourdan, Martha Stewart, Jenna Jameson, Pete Doherty, Amy Winehouse, Jared Leto, and

You will need to have a penchant for drugs, alcohol and violence; no appreciation for laws be they civil, federal or traffic laws; an intimate familiarity with the criminal justice and rehab programs and not be very generous people or good role models. Can’t stop the pAArtying, and globe trotting. You will need approximately 7 publicists (resignations and firings included), 3 lawyers (for the different time zones in which you’ll get into trouble), at least 4 stints in rehab in 5 years and you will need to have your career waved over your head as a warning to stop the folly.

Kanye West Flashing Lights 2nd Video

May 27, 2008

So for those of you who were offended by the original video for Flashing Lights by Kanye West which resembled a snuff film, Yezie or however you spell it has released a tamer version of the video.

In my opinion, it is much closer to the theme of the song than the original video, but less gutsy. It still is a masterful video, great vision. Art vs. Bank.

New Ne-Yo

Closer is the single from Ne-Yo’s upcoming album Year of the Gentleman. Now, I am not a big fan of Ne-Yo but I actually like this song, then again, I like Janet Jackson’s Rock Wit U also… pick sense from nonsense.

Cool video. I still think he’s one of the ugliest black men I have ever seen.

Maroon 5 and Rihanna

May 22, 2008

Beyoncé who?

It appears as though music royalty Rihanna really IS embracing the pop/rock side of the music business. Check out the video for Maroon 5’s If I Never See Your Face Again featuring Rihanna.

The video is hot and Rihanna really gives the song some zest!

Nokia N95 8Gig Black vs. Blackberry Curve 8320 WiFi

May 22, 2008

This is a very self serving post. Not informative, just conducting a pole.

if you had to choose between the blackberry curve WiFi and the Nokia N95 8Gig Black which would you choose? Click here for a comparison.

Thanks to the people at GSM Arena for the wonderful site and its many features- Check them out.

So I have decided to go for the Nokia N95 8Gig Black, since the Blackberry Curve 8320 WiFi is so dull in terms of features as well as appearance. They both have WiFi and internet browsing but the Nokia just does more, and with 8Gigs of built in memory, I think it’s a wise investment.

And for those of you harping on the fact tat the blackberry has a full QWERTY keyboard, get over it, you still end up using it like you would a regular cell phone keypad anyway.

In More Blackberry News

May 21, 2008

Okay, so I have been trying to avoid writing about the Blackberry Bold for quite some time now, but I feel my silence need be broken.

Somebody told Blackberry THAT is a sexy phone? In my opinion, being a foremost authority on foremost authorities, I must say that is one UGLY phone, or one very sexy calculator.

Truth be told it looks like the bastard child of the Motorola C333 and the Blackberry Pearl. Oh well… no accounting for taste is there.

I give it one upchuck and thumbs down.
