key key doesn' look the ledt

key key doesn' look the ledt bit sexy. She just looks uncomfortabe and cold. If she didn't have that eye make-up on, she would be in trouble. BTW,the photog should hav told her to keep her mouth closed.

Serena, next time a little

Serena, next time a little less shine on the legs and ankles (looking like Crisco-Kid) - get some "grown folks" shoes to ROCK that cute little dress.. Keisha, not yet... Keep singing (cause you have a good voice) and know your SELF WORTH - you are still a baby in this here thing we call the "game" - don't put your goodies out there sweetie...

Okay being half naked and

Okay being half naked and being completely naked are two different things. Whenever Beyonce does a cover she always looks classy. Keyshia does not look classy to me on this cover. Like someone said this is more of a KING magazine cover than a VIBE magazine cover. Come on KeyKey you can do better. U don't have to be naked to sale. Why can't some of these chicks let their talent do the talking.
For Real's picture

Keyshia Cole? Why? Really I

Keyshia Cole? Why? Really I get mad when chicks with real potential like K´s do covers and photo sessions selling they body like that. When you have a voice like the one she has you don’t need to show half of your breasts to increase your sales in a magazine cover! Leave that to “studio singers” like Rihanna. Not a good move Keyshia! SERENA Good to see her looking fine like that! With all that money she has is her obligation too look normal or great, not that hot mess she looked like. Keep stepping your game up. I love her hair! Natalie King Cole is slaughtering 17-18-23-25-28 old chicks! She is banginggggggggggg. Love it.

[quote comment="7894"]Love the new site...natasha please don't switch back just because these fool can't take an upgrade. I love not having to scroll down through the whole damn web page and wait for everything to load. Now it's just a click of a button.I would not be mad if Chudney got plastic surgery done to her face, it can't get any worse than it already is.Damn that was mean of me to say...but hey it's the truth...maybe they can push her eyes further into her sockets. She must get a lot of shit up in her eyes.[/quote] FUNNY BITVH!

I happened to come across

I happened to come across this site, and I assume this is mostly a site where women check out the latest in hollywood affairs, but, I had to respond right quick...lol---to the Serena Haters, lol --- from a BROTHA's perspective, she is looking RIGHT...and remember, she is a professional ATHLETE...not a model or dainty wimpy "I broke a nail" chick (not that anything wrong with them, dainty is good, ;-)...plus, say what ya want, but girl is thiiiiick...I know, I know, her arms are mad cutt...yeah yeah, so what... but da breasts, legs and butt :-D - yep yep (and hope I ain't offensive)...she right (and not strictly in a sexual way either)-she curvacious, lol...AND SHE DIDNT TAKE STEROIDS, lol...goodness. If you followed her career, she has ALWAYS had the athletic look since she was a young girl. Mad props to her and Venus, all around...

Chudney Ross is lacking

Chudney Ross is lacking something. I don't what it is. But it something her mother and sister Tracee possess... She tries to be stylish but can't do it.. I guess you either have it or you don't!

ashanti = stunning! keyshia

ashanti = stunning! keyshia cole = beautiful! serena = fabulous! paulette = beautiful black woman, haters! if he was with a white or damn near white woman you would have nothing to say about her looks. she is a refined beauty, stop hating!
kisha's picture

To Eh bay bay, who cares what

To Eh bay bay, who cares what Beyonce would do. Keyshia rocked that cover and that's all that should be said. Keyshia is her on person and in my opinion, Beyonce might not take a nude picture but she would be half dressed and have suggestive poses. Am I right or am I right.
phatkitten's picture

Go Keyshia! Girl you did

Go Keyshia! Girl you did that. Ashanti looks nice, she made a come up once she started messing with Nelly. I have to give it to her though, her hair is always on point. Natlie Cole is always gorgeous and, don't talk about Denzel and Pauletta, I love them!
phatkitten's picture

I love Keyshia. IMO Keyshia

I love Keyshia. IMO Keyshia is very beautiful, but a very classless artist. Yes I said it! Bet you will never catch Beyoncé nekidd on the cover of a magazine just to raise her album sales. So is Vibe the new playboy or what? I think that cover would have been better for KING magazine. I just don't think she had to go that route.

I THINK KEISHA IS TO TALENTED

I THINK KEISHA IS TO TALENTED TO BE POSING LIKE THIS. I MEAN, WHEN YOU HAVE THAT MUCH SWAG AND TALENT, YOU DON'T HAVE TO SELL SEX. EXAMPLE: ALICIA KEYS. LET'S KEEP IT CLASSY LADIES..NOT TRASHY!

[quote comment="7951"]Oh,

[quote comment="7951"]Oh, damn, does Chudney really have to look like Beetlejuice every time I see her? Lawd help. Somebody needs to tell her to try leaving off the dark black eyeliner. She does NOT need to draw attention to those eyes. It's the eyes...Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice!![/quote] I laughed so loud when I read this... I think I might get fired!!!

[quote comment="7907"] Denzel

[quote comment="7907"] Denzel and Pauletta have been together FOREVER! Don't be surprised...this is what marriage can do to you after 20-30 years...look at ya parents! quote] It is called years of Denzel stepping out with other women and having babies with other women. Nip Tuck premieres tonight ya'll

Roberta flack/carrot

Roberta flack/carrot top?..lol ashanti is starting to give beyonce a run for her money...now if she could only sing and dance the washingtons are funny...i don't like pauletta's bag though @Serena, you can tell when a girl's got a boooyfriend! You go girl, lookin' better for ya man i see( i would too though, he's pretty fly) Neicy will not let that flower go...we need a prayer circle for that Funny comment about Joy Bryant Irv Gotti is not hard, despite the looks he tries to give, he looks like a big teddy bear to me Keisha Cole looks nice, doesnt totally look like her...but nice

I'm a BLOGaholic, so I get

I'm a BLOGaholic, so I get ALL the blogs I read daily (no less than 15) delivered to my Google Reader. The old format had all the content there for me in once place of course so the bum in me LOVED it for that. The new format is ok, but that one click turns to 8 when it's a very busy post day, and it is slightly anoying. However, I will deal with it because it isn't too big of a deal. Honestly, no matter the format, I will still be an avid reader of YBF, as I have been for about a year and a half. Keep bringing us the JUICE, Natasha!

[quote comment="8065"][quote

[quote comment="8065"][quote comment="8018"]ok now to comment on the American Gangster movie. I've seen it & it definitely wasn't action packed but it was good for what is was. 'The Godfather' movies are the favorite movies of alot of folks & the Story Of FRank Lucas was about him doing what any other 'MOB' boss does, but he fell off because he didnt instill the values in his own family members that the other 'families' have. Near the beginning of the movie a man told Lucas that order is more important than one mans life & he did not instill that in his family & his drugged out cousin pulled a move that was recently perfected by T.I's body guard & wore a wire to bring him down in order to save himself.... Crime dont pay especially when you run with a crew of unloyal screw-ups![/quote] *sighs deep* Thanks for giving us the movie plot. I really like knowing what is going to happen first before I get a chance to watch.[/quote] Actually the plot is not a secret because this actually happened in real life, just took awhile to make a movie about it...so calm down:-)

Natasha, I LOOOOOOVE the new

Natasha, I LOOOOOOVE the new layout. It's fresh, eye-catching and very easy to use. I don't know WHAT these other people are talking about. About Serena: she looks good...and is that her real hair (gasp!)?? I agree, Michelle needs to put some weight on her. But I think she might just be naturally skinny. And John Legend is slowing losing my interest, now that I see he only dates (white) models. And, please tell me: Is there something wrong with Niecy's ear? Why does she always have that damn flower over it??

Ashanti looks okay, there's

Ashanti looks okay, there's nothing FAB about the dress; Michell looks like a bobble-head doll; Patti finally looks her age and her breasts aren't choking her; Robert Flack is Roberta Flack, she has always dressed a little off; Natalie Cole looks good; Serena looks good but I will have to say them feet need some work done and she's made enough money to afford it; Chudney should lose the raccoon look and play down her beautiful eyes and yes, I loved her dress; Star looks funny like her head can just fall off her body at any moment; Keyshia Cole is doing her and i love it; Denzel is aging beautifully while Pauletta is just aging; Damon Wayans looks good with the salt&pepper beard; i'm almost 10 years older than Kelly Ripa and she looks older than me, and Niecy need to give that flower a rest and take that dress back to the eighties.

I love your site natasha, and

I love your site natasha, and I have often e-mailed you with questions and other stuff like who ran it or whatever. However, I don't like your new format either. I know that it is one click, but it does take a long time for the page to load at my office (and you know that most people are looking at your site from work). Unlike my home computer I can't download or upgrade anything on YTs computer so your site is now very un-user friendly. When I click the read the rest links, often the pictures will never load. I don't want you to think I'm hating, because I love your site, but you have to think about the people looking at the site at work too and may not be able to upgrade. As far as others saying that "most site have read the rest links", the only other blog that does this in Concrete Loop. Every other blog I go to does not have this format. Thanks you Natasha for all your hard work.

She's never claimed to have taken them, but a women’s body doesn't get as big as hers was from exercise. One has to wonder if she's suffered any of the side affect of steroids: reduced breast size, enlarged clitoris, growth of facial and chest hair, menstrual irregularities, high signs of aggression, male pattern baldness, and deepening of voice. Y'all know steroids cause the female body to look manly and Serena was looking very much like a man. I hope she wasn't using them because most of the affects are irreversible.[/quote] Honestly. Some women's bodies just react differently to exercise. and she exercises A LOT.

Doesn't it look like Serena

Doesn't it look like Serena peed on herself? In the first pic of her, look at the wet spot on the ground and then her feet being all shiny/glossed- looks like an accident. Is Michelle's slip showing and if so, why is she wearing one? She looks funny!

I like the new layout.

I like the new layout. Michelle should eat something. Auntie Pattie look great as usually ( She likes her prints and is not changing for anybody! ) Serena looks great but thoes feet, LAWD HAVE MERCY!!!!

[quote comment="7974"]On the site commentary.....I just wanted to let you know Natasha, I love your new website. The layout of very professional and aesthetically pleasing for savvy internet browsers/users. For those of you complaining, Natasha is just bringing the site up to standards that are competitive and on the level of the other major internet blogger websites. Please go and visit a few of the other MAJOR sites and they all have this type of "Read the Rest" linkage. It makes it easier for frequent viewers to see if a new blog has been posted because scrolling is quicker. Please save your comments for me, as I have a degree in Information Systems and am a technical writer with many years of experience in creating User Interfaces -- this is one of the best I have seen in a while.[/quote] Despite your background in IT, I am still a reader and these blogs should be customer friendly, no? True, other "major" blogs are in a 'READ THE REST' format. Its a valid point. But then again, other folks are also wearing red tapered leg jeans...Matter fact, I do believe I saw some dude in the street with straight-up Gumby haircut. And Kanye just recently took off those insane glasses. Other folks do all kinds of things, but some stuff is suspect as hell and really shouldn't be duplicated simply because the masses like it. Natasha is doing fab new things, so why should she just follow the pack? I am simply saying perhaps she should consider the readership's requests. Whether or not she chooses to, the blog is still hot and I will keep coming back and telling friends, whatever the format. And please save those comments for moi as well. I have a BA in Marketing and MA in Journalism, not to mention years of experience as a writer, editor and consultant. Basically, writing, formatting and messaging are things I think about everyday.

Please God - let the time

Please God - let the time come when Black people see how wonderful you made us. ESPECIALLY our hair. I am sick to the teeth seeing every Black woman with dead hair, false hair, hair murdered by frying, hair murdered by chemicals. The day some confident woman come forth with wonderful style whether, kinky or curly will be a day for rejoicing! I am not against anyone wanting something different for a change - but, but for goodness sake let up do something creative witb our natural hair sometime. Or do something really outstanding - free it. I want to see some beautiful alive kinky, curly hair!

Tasha the formatt is

Tasha the formatt is wonderful, i ued to couldnt post any comments and i didnt read them because it was fustrating and i couldnt figure the old one out this is much easier and clearer, it like a whole new level of njoyment of this site for me cause i always have something to say and im at work and i cant tell my customers i dont want them to know im not paying attention to them. with that being said patty looked like a geisha but it was very cute and i loved her hair. keisha looked very fab indeed even nekked, you so wrong for talking about neicy but so right i havent seen a dress like that since the 99 famu homecoming at cpa(for all you rattlers) and chudney looks good her dresss is beautiful, she just needs to tone the smile down and go to atl and get a good black hair stylist(shouts to jakki colors on peach tree)and hit up mac, not the drag queen at the counter but the black girl.

Ashanti looks great as

Ashanti looks great as always, Serena stepped her game up too better than usual, but I'm still not impressed she comes of manly to me. Keyshia, you can't pull that off,leave those poses for people who are actually sexy and don't have GHETTO BODY ART. Lastly, HATERS please do your research before you start hating, because that is so not the same dress that J. Lo wore. I mean if you don’t like Ashanti that’s cool, but if you want to be a hater at least be good at it. Here are links to J.Lo with the dress you guys are trying to say is exactly the same. http://justjared.buzznet....lopez-oscars-2007-002.jpg They are obviously not the same.

I saw Niecy Nash at the Cheesecake Factory a few months ago, and she wears that damn flower religiously. Keyshia cole looks fab. Kelly Ripa, them kids are starting to age you girl! Boo84: yes, there is something sexy about Irv Gotti. I am ashamed and embarrassed to say, but watching his show, I find myself strangely attracted to him... *covers my face with my hands*
