T. Pain was spotted arriving at TRL Studios today:
Looking crispy.
More ish when you read the rest...
And Lil Mama arrived too:
Yeah she wears neon and moonshoes and iridescence, but I can't even hate on this chick like most people have been doing. It's her style and she embodies it well. Everybody can't do it. Or maybe I'm just becoming immune to foolywang material these days. Who knows.

Whitney didn't want any pics of her taken at the Plymouth Jazz Festival this weekend, but:






Here's some anyway. Because YBF likes fresh music and fresh faces:

Here's semi-new artist Ray Lavender. He is signed to Akon's record label Kon Live Distribution through UpFront Records and had another single called "My Girl Gotta Girlfriend". And he's getting set to release his debut studio album, X-Rayted which is slated for a fall 2008 release. Check his newest single "Stay" right here.
And R.L. of Next has dropped a new solo track. It's called "I Love You". Check it: [audio:rliloveyou.mp3] Interesting. And here's Plies' new video ft. Ne-Yo for "Bust It Baby II":

lmao @ the comments...his

lmao @ the comments...his chain says "goon" which is possibly worse than coon, lol. plies really needs to go the hell away, he has a lot of damn nerve calling anyone a "bust it baby". the only thing i wanna bust around plies is his big ass head!! i'm mad neyo has more ass than me. and why plies giving that yt his chain?? bitchassness is really rampant, huh? i think crispy was meant as a sarcastic comment here. and lil mama will be fine once she gains some weight and her face fills out. i kinda like her.

[quote comment="79978"][quote comment="79862"]I remember a while back another girl commented in here that Natasha refers to darker skinned people as crispy. I didn't know if I agreed with that. But now that I see the pictures of T-Pain and Natasha indeed describes him as crispy, I think I'm gonna have to agree with that other girl. Why does he look crispy? Black folks, we need to get over the skin color thing.[/quote] Your right but i dont think natasha was calling him crispy because of his skin tone becuse i seen her on bet doing an interview and she's basically the same complexion so i dont think she would crack on a skin color that is her own, black is beautiful yall[/quote] Just bcuz someone has a dark complexion does not mean that they like it. I work with a girl who is so oblivious to her partiality to light skinned people and she is dark. Some self-hate is unconcious and unintended.

[quote comment="80010"]Crispy

[quote comment="80010"]Crispy is not a bad thing yu'all. It's a compliment. I checked out the urban dictionary on-line, it means: "neat,clean,trim,fashionab le,with it,very good-looking." or "To be hot.. one of a kind... confidant about yourself ..sexy.."[/quote] R u serious?! Natasha is obviously not being complimentary when she uses this term.

[quote comment="79866"]I'm all for people being unique and going against the grain if that's your thing. But Lil Mama just looks a bit...she just never looks quite...it's just something about her...SHE JUST DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT?!?! It's not the green contacts or the eccentric clothes, it's just her face. Something about it just isn't working for me, she looks man-ish.[/quote] She looks like lil bow wow and she's the spiiting image in these pictures.. look again i never seen her pic that looks so much like him as much as these ones. Her dressing attire is not the business. i think everyone is on the pity potty and tryin to pitty this girl/woman because they realise she really has no fashion sense and she really cant dress so there nice enough to look for the best in her.. well if i start seeing young girls dressin like that im takin the baseball bat to the streets and knockin some youngins over my eyes hurt and why them spice girl shoes.. natasha is to use to the foolywangery ish that Lavender is scrumptious. sexy as hell..

Natasha knows she's wrong for

Natasha knows she's wrong for that damn 'CRISPY' comment towards T-Pain because she's damn near that colour herself! Don't get it twisted. I hate how y'all always clowin' about other peoples physical features .. whoever said that comment about lil' kim is right! Cause when we go out and get surgery and it all goes wrong, y'all are still going to be talking sh*t!! Natasha this blog is supposed to be promoting black celebrities and their 'fabulousness', check yourself before you write another crispy comment because you're upsetting alot of people. I wouldn't be surprised if you lose some visitors too! You know that ish ain't right. That's why I'm mostly on CONCRETELOOP.COM these days. There's no COLORISM there !

Lil Mama's eyes can be mint green, sky blue, gray, or hazel and it won't make a lick of difference to me, it is her overall face that's just not clicking.[/quote] She really doesn't look right. And if those are NOT contacts then she need to get some brown contacts to try and soften her face up a bit.

T-Pain looks horrible, don't

T-Pain looks horrible, don't understand why he's a star. Lil Mama looks better without the crayola outfits. I like Lipgloss, but the drag queen video version is MUCH more entertaining. Whitney looks beautiful but the golden voice has been shattered.

Ugh. Plies' new song is utter

Ugh. Plies' new song is utter trash. Mediocre bull that's been done over and over. I am so sick of rap and R&B collabos. Tired of Ne-Yo too. He sings in the same boring melody. Man I wish Shyne, Dr. Dre, or Q-Tip would come back to rap. Well anybody that had some orginiality. That R.L. track is alright, but it sounds like something Chris Brown would sing. I think R.L. could do better than that. He needs to do more grown and sexy music like he used to do.

I dunno, I don't think she

I dunno, I don't think she was referring to t-pain as crispy as in "fresh"... I think she meant dark-skinned. She does it all the time (look back in the) archives when she called fantasia a crispy-mess, as well as janice combs... She constantly downs dark-skinned people and its a shame-- esp since this blog is specifically geared towards blk ppl...

T-Pain is a clown, check the

T-Pain is a clown, check the foolywang material a while back. Talented...and yet so too are clowns. lol As for lil mama, she has a strong jaw bone, hell she has strong features, she some times looks like a cute lil man instead of cute lil mama but in this go round she looks more fem; I'm feelin the hair and her style. She's kinda startin to channel MC Lyte. You know she was kinda mannish when she came out...and, well, I'm not so sure those aren't contacts in here eyes. Anyway, they do brighten her face. At the end of the day, when they are home, no fanfare, no bs, they are who they are. And, when they're out for us, they're enterainers and this gossip site, is just well...entertainment.

I must say I think yall are

I must say I think yall are being a little hard on Lil Mama. She can't help it her jaw line is extra strong. Maybe she just needs to gain a little weight. I have hope for her yet but I am proud she not out here selling her ass - lets give her some credit. It's got to be hard for a girl to always have folks saying she look like a man - she'll be alright lets leave her alone - for now anyway LOL. *Gets off soapbox as I'm done with my PSA for girl self image!*
