D.L. Hughley: What can I say? He's not that funny to me so my commentary on him is - he was there. The funniest thing he said all night was about Young Buck crying. Damn. I need to go back and listen to that. It's still funny to me. OK, I guess he wasn't that bad since I did chuckle at that one.

Niecy Nash Toccara


Usher: His performance was sort of dry. It may have to do with the fact that the only reason I like "Love In This Club" is because Jeezy is on it, but since he performed it without him, I was left thinking, "Is that it?"

Just before the commercial break the cameras cut away to Ne-Yo who looked thoroughly unimpressed. His look seemed to say, "That was weak." LOL

Jeezy & Kanye West: "Put On" a decent performance.

Ne-Yo: I did enjoy his performance. At this point I realized the show seemed to be moving a bit quickly as if they were rushing. He sang "Closer" which is my song, so I was bopping along with it and enjoying the dance breakdown at the end.

Gabriel Union Jordin Sparks


LL & Ashanti: They presented Chris Brown with the Male Artist of the Year award. LL looked just like candy (old school pun intended), but I don't know what was up with Ashanti's dress, but I'm guessing the dress so short and the heels were so high that caused her to do the Diana Ross-like waddle off the stage. Chris Brown could lose the blond streaked mohawk, but other than that, he's as adorable as usual.

Morris Chestnut: He looked so scrumptious that I almost didn't realize he was there with his fellow cast mates of "Boz In The Hood," Nia Long and Cuba Gooding, Jr.

Full commentary on the MySpace page.


  1. Usher was boring. I saw the Ne-yo look. My daughter did too. She was like look at Ne-yo he hated it.

    I liked T-Pain's little ring master bit.
    Seeing En Vogue.
    Keyshia should never sing live.
    I can't think right now.
    And Maxwell.

    Your daughter was right. NeYo was not impressed with Usher and neither was I. I can't believe that's all he had to give when he has bee claiming he is back to redeem his crown.

  3. At first I was like, "What happened Usher?" Then I remembered him saying he got his his current swagger from his wife and I thought... Oh boy, Tameka strikes again because IMO he lost his Ursher swagger.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Fat? Please...

Jennifer Love Hewitt fans have been dogging her out on the Net saying they can't believe she's let herself go and 'oh my God she's SO fat!'

Oh I get it, they've finally seen some pics of a celebrity that weren't air brushed and they couldn't handle it.... let me explain: What you see on TV, in magazines and online is a bunch of lighting, air brushing and hair & make up trickery. There, carry on please.

Michael Jackson: Before & After Thriller

As you may know by now, Michael Jackson will be on the December 2007 issue of Ebony Magazine. They are showcasing him 25 years after "Thriller".

I commend him on still trying to be out there after years of controversy and court cases, but I wish the man had stayed out of the plastic surgeon's office.

Here's Micheal Jackson before "Thriller"

Here's Micheal Jackson during "Thriller"
