Sneak Peek At Common's "I Want You" Vid+Def Jam Hits Ne-Yo's Party in Bulk

Common's new video for "I Want You" sparked the rumorville when Kerry Washington signed on to co-direct it. While those two are in a much rumored romance, Alicia Keys, Kanyeezie, Will.I.Am, and Serena Williams are all up in the vid too. Common's people hit YBF with some words from Mr. Sexy himself:
"Kerry and I have always admired each others work and always wanted to collaborate on a project. When we began planning for the video for "I Want You," I reached out to Kerry to star in it and it developed into her directing. She had a strong vision for the song that grabbed me from the start so we got our cast and crew together and made it happen," states Common.
Mmmhmm. I'll be watching. And it doesn't hurt that the track is uberly hot. The Def Jam offices clearly sent out a memo to everybody on the label to go hit up Ne-Yo's b-day party at Tribeca Rooftop last night: ne-yo-his-mom-rihanna.jpg His mom and good friend Rih Rih were there. ne-yo-and-his-mom-2.jpg Damn those lips.... rihanna-and-ne-yo.jpg ne-yo-and-rihanna.jpg ne-yo-and-rihanna-at-his-birthday-party.jpg Cuteness. beanie-sigel-and-dj-clue.jpg melyssa-ford-and-beanie.jpg Beanie Sigel, DJ Clue, and Melyssa Ford all came out. janet-and-jd1.jpg jd-and-janet-ne-yo-b-day-pa.jpg JD and Janet got their cute couple on. laurie-ann-gibson-and-bj-co.jpg Laurie Anne and BJ Coleman were there. Damn Laurie Ann... ll-and-chingy.jpg Chingy and his new beefed up status kicked it with LL. ne-yo-3.jpg ne-yo-and-chrisette-michell.jpg Chrisette Michele was there to sing to the birthday boy. Too bad folks at Def Jam played her on the promo tip. Good to see she's not bitter. ne-yo-21.jpg The Pres. came out out of course: ne-yo-and-jay-z.jpg ty-ty-ne-yo-steve-stoute.jpg Did Ty Ty, Ne-Yo, Steve Stoute, and Jay do this on purpose? ne-yo-and-his-mom.jpg Fun times. And y'all know Rih Rih had to get in a few "candids" leaving the party: rihanna-in-tribeca.jpg rihanna-in-tribeca-2.jpg Chick stays walking that fine line between night club and strip club.  Regardless...outfit is still hot.  And either that arm tat from a few days ago is hiding under a ridiculous amount of makeup...or it was all fake to begin with. Hmmm... Here's some exclusive pics from Tuesday night's R&B Spotlight Live event in the NYC: ne-yo-at-spotlight.jpg Ne-Yo is definitely publicity slut of the week hitting up everything and anything. Are we really rocking red leather right now? joe-budden.jpg Where you been Joe Buddens? judge-hatchett.jpg Judge Hatchett was in the place. eric-nicks-slim-shanti-da.jpg Eric Nicks, Slim from 112, and Shanti Das kicked it. antonio-pierce-chingy.jpg And Chingy kicked it with Antonio Pierce. Hello there boys. The Randomness:
  1. Bobby Brown's country ass is about to try to become a country music star...for reals.
Stay fab!

I don't think Rih really got

I don't think Rih really got a tattoo cause in the other oic it just looked like the stencil they put down first before they ink u...so maybe she got that put on so that she could think about it b4 going through with making it permanant. AND I wish I could pull off her look with them tall boots.

[quote comment="4738"][quote comment="4706"]@Mardou Fox Co-sign, as short as it is it's a weave honey some people dont wear weave for the length, they wear it for convience or to achieve a certain hair style. Rihanna's real hair may be shoulder length but she wears weave to get her bob. GET A CLUE[/quote] GET A CLUE? Ummm okay, yeah...it's that serious... The truth is, neither of us knows if that's a weave...her hair is dyed jet black, so with a professional straightening and a deep conditioning, unless it were just exorbitantly long, it would be virtually impossible to tell the natural hair from weave. So, I'll stick by what I said, IMO she seems to be bravely wearing her own hair. *sighs* weave, weave, always a touchy subject...[/quote] Sorry....It's a WEAVE. As a person who always wears weaves I can tell you that her natural hair would not lay that flat. She needed to add weave to it to get it to sit right.

that Common video krew, looks

that Common video krew, looks like that real down-to-earth krew that you've been rollin' with since undergrad. they look like they can get together and have hecka grown-ass people fun without all of that teeny-bop, superficial nonsense in the industry. you know that moment when all ya'll in your krew look up in your late 20s - early 30's and everyone is at the tops of their games, they're hip hop stars, tennis pros, directors, artists, etc. OR all of ya'll are now lawyers, doctors, professors, principals, running non-profits, junior execs, etc., then you get together and you're like dang ya'll look how far we've come - but ya'll are still down-to-earth and still about using your talents and blessings to uplift our community and put out a positive product and messages. That's the truth right there. And that's what the gathering of that group in the Common video reminded me of.

The tattoo is a fake. Look at

The tattoo is a fake. Look at how blue it was. When you get a tattoo the area around it is red for at least a couple of days. Plus you have to keep it wet with medicated ointment for a while. Her are has no signs of redness or ointment.

Ohhh, almost forgot... As for Common and Kerry...yeah, they're together...she's never been "black" so much as she has this month lol And, if you're going to call my comment ignorant, I've seen her at TONS of events back when she was with the white actor dude...Her new "interest" in the African American scene is just that...new lol
Mardou Fox's picture

As someone else said,

As someone else said, Rihanna's tat looked, from day one, like a stencil...she probably had it applied and later decided against going through with it... What I think is lamest about it, is I'm sure she went outside with it exposed that way and then read all the blogs and decided against it... If you've got that way of thinking about it, you should NEVER make permanent changes to your body.... Now, as for her outfit, she looks GORGEOUS. I see nothing at all "stripper-esque" about it... I think it's merely her size, the realness of her size (which is gorgeous too), that makes her wearing this mini dress "risque"... Then again, it might be all the conotations we go to immediately when seeing thigh-high boots (stripper, hooker) but nah...she looks stunning! I'm just in awe of the fact that she's brave enough to wear her real hair...no other mainstream star does that...WOW...

Saying Rihanna looks strip

Saying Rihanna looks strip club is not a bad thing, damn yall try to read into everything Natasha say.
Anon's picture

I don't think that Rhianna

I don't think that Rhianna tattoo was real in the first place. Just look at it. When I saw it the first time I knew it was just the ink from the paper the tattoo artist applies before getting started (unless they hand draw it). There's no makeup covering it up on those pics. Maybe she changed her mind or something about it at the last minute. Good thing too cause it wasn't too cute.

First of all, it's painfully

First of all, it's painfully obvious that the tatt on Rhi Rhi's arm last week was fake. I wouldn't even call it a tatt, she just got bored and started drawing on her arm with an ink pen, you can tell from the color of it...DUH! I can't believe y'all thought that tatt was real. Oh and BTW, chick looks FAB, I remember when she was busted...Jay hooked her up with the "Beyonce makeover".

You can tell that Rhi's arm

You can tell that Rhi's arm tat is covered from makeup because of how that flash is reflection off of it. It's similar to how the flash comes off her face. That's how you can always tell someone is wearing too much make-up at night (or when you look at your collar after hugging them the next day). In the first pictures you can clearly see her hiding the arm on the closeups or it being completely cropped out of the picture. That is what you call having a good rep that calls the photogs hiring company to edit the shots prior to printing. :-)
