LOVEY DOVEY: Diddy's Done Womanizing Women?+More Pics From Essence Atkins' Wedding

Diddy says he's giving up on his womanizing ways.  According to Black Book: In an interview with Black Book magazine, Puffy said: "I guess the things that used to thrill me don't thrill me so much anymore. Intimacy is more important to me than sleeping with hot chicks. I don't even know if I really savored every menage a trois I had. I don't want to do it all over again." He added, "Love is something I strongly connect with, but it's not something I've conquered. I really can't sit here pretending to be the premier expert on love." This is your chance Cassie.  Better get while the gettin' is good...

And here's more pics from Essence Atkins' wedding to Jamie Hernandez:

My friends were all different from me,” Mariah told StyleList.com of her childhood insecurities. “No one knew how to fix my hair. My facial features stood out. And I know we [mixed people] all say that. But even though I’ve grown since, some of those things still remain with me.”

Would Somebody PLEASE Get Kanye Some Damn Chicken?!+More Flicks Of Rihanna Overseas

If you thought Kanye was a changed man, think again. He was wildin' out at Common's benefit concert he performed at several days ago at the Hollywood Palladium. All over some chicken. Here's what VIBE had to say about the incident: The rapper was allegedly upset over his not being offered food while in the dressing room backstage. After spotting a man eating chicken, West blurted, "Why wasn't I offered chicken? You want me to perform for free, [and] everyone is eating... why am I not eating?" When the waitress explained that he never asked for food, 'Ye yelled, "Well, I'm asking now!". After receiving chicken, he allegedly proceeded to take a bite and then throw the rest in the trash. Meanwhile, the rapper's beau Amber Rose, stood silent, while other celebrities backstage watched in awe. What you said? He aint no diva??

Mr. and Mrs. Smith are hosting the Nobel Peace Prize concert going down in Norway in December.  Wyclef and others have already been slated to perform.  Congrats to them.

Tyson Beckford said what now?   He was recently asked if he had to spend the night with one man, who would it be and why?  *LMAO at this question*  His response: "I don't actually go that way, though I notice a lot of people think I do. But umm, you know what, if Imma do it, I'm going for [Barack] Obama. If I got with him, I could run the country. If I was that way, Obama, I'd be gunning for you brother! I'd be the one in control. That's if I was that way. Who you gonna go for? Will Smith? Somebody pretty like that? Not to say Obama's not pretty. But I'd go straight for Obama because you got power then. You could run red lights and just wild out. And I'd have Michelle [Obama] hold the camera!" Whoa. More when you read the rest...

Joy Bryant Dishes On Her Weave+Kerry Washington Gets Fab

Joy Bryant wrote a blog over at Essence.com. And she's being half sarcastic and half real about her own addiction to weave. ANd how Tyra's "real hair" realization has no effect on her:
As the threads of the grown-out tracks were being snipped, I broke out my laptop and began my ritualistic daily web search. I go from news of the day to articles/blogs about the news of the day, ending up on entertainment/gossip/fashion stuff. But that day, something caught my attention and trumped all of the glowing reviews of President Obama’s health care speech: It was Tyra’s hair. National Real Hair Day? I missed that one...In fact, on National Real Hair Day, I was calling Extensions Plus in L.A. to make sure they had enough of the 20” "relaxed roots" texture hair that I love oh so much (and that keeps selling out like crazy!), and making an appointment to get my hair, I mean, my weave, hooked up. So Tyra, while I didn’t take part in your observance, I just want to say: "WOW!" You are such a brave woman for breaking the chains that bound you since your teenage years! What courage that took, for you to expose yourself to millions of people! Such fearlessness! Oh, how I wish I had the guts to do that. I guess I’m much too much of an insecure, self-loathing Negro for all that self-acceptance foolishness. I’m glad we got down to solving the mystery of what’s under your lace-front, though. I mean seriously, it was "THE" question that has perplexed the world over. And now we see that there’s a beautiful head of hair underneath it all, hair that was surprisingly relaxed and ready for the world. Whodathunkit?! If I had the same length and fullness of hair that you have, I might take my weave out too. Ha!!!! I’m just playing! Even if I DID have your "real" hair, I’d still be wearing a few tracks or clip-ons up in there. Why? Because I’m straight weave fo life, kid!!! Ima ride ride wit this weave, die die with this weave!! Let me break it down for you: See, I loooooove taking new hair out of the bag, combing through it with my fingers, holding it up with my two hands, and burying my face in it. Mmmm, mmmm, mmm! Nothing like a new batch of zig-zag curly to get your self esteem out of the dumps! The feeling of getting my hair, I mean, my weave done over. I feel human again. I feel sexy. I feel powerful. It makes me feel...it makes me feel...it makes feel like a natural woman!!! I can be whatever, whoever I want to be with the stroke of a sewing needle... With long brown tresses and a tan, I’m Pocahontas, 'cause I got Indian in my family. With easy waves, I AM bohemian rhapsody goddess personified. And now that I got blond highlights! What!? I know I look like Beyonce! You can’t tell me nothing! Uh oh, uh oh... And then I looked up from my computer, and caught a glimpse in the mirror of my head minus the long weavy locks. I looked crazy! Awww hell naw! I looked over at the new batch of hair sitting off to the side waiting to join forces with me. Damnit, I’m trapped, I thought to myself. I can’t let it go. I am powerless over it. Just when I think I’m done, it pulls me back in! Now I guess I can get help for my self-loathing addiction. I can learn to accept myself in my entirety. I can emancipate myself from that which keeps me locked-up. I can embrace the natural state of things. Yup, I can do all of that… But don’t hold your breath! Hi, my name is Joy, and I’m a weave-a-holic.
Hilarity. Pics of YBF chick Kerry Washington when you read the rest...
