Ear 2 tha streetz

Overactor of the Year Denzel Washington and his wife Pauletta attended the American Gangster premiere in Hollywood last night. Denzel is definitely getting chastised for rockin the Blood Diamond Russ white sneaker look. Them thangs ain’t even crispy at all…he could’ve at least threw on a fresh pair. They look like two deflated rugby balls. And did Pauletta accidentally grab a pillow off the Huffman Koos in haste thinking it was her clutch?

Trio Bizzarro: Madonna, Sting and Tupac - circa 1995

A new book “Madonna: Like an Icon” mentions that Madonna was dating Tupac:

“Madonna, in her mid-30's, “desperately wanted children and had various relationships with unlikely men.” The singer’s friend Alison Clarkson recalls when she was briefly dating Tupac Shakur, one year before his death.

“She was going out with him … but homegirls were saying to him, ‘I can’t believe you’re going out with a white girl,’” - so she got dumped! ”

Some 11 years since anyone gave an ish about the dude, cluelessly doomed Oxygen Network has greenlighted an unscripted series starring rapper Coolio that will follow his “trials and tribulations as he tries to balance his work with his role as a single parent raising six teenagers.” The network has ordered 6 half-hour episodes of the series, titled “Coolio & the Gang,” set to air in second-quarter 2008. Ummm, wow. Lest we forget, NBC Universal is buying Oxygen for $925 million.
Coolio, whose recording career took off in 1995 (and ended a year later), boasts three platinum albums and six top 10 hits, including "Gansta's Paradise" and "Fantastic Voyage." The series will show him balancing his life as a family man with his rap career and launching his own clothing line. ”
