Jay-Z's "I Know" Vid+The Academy Apologizes To Whoopi+Trey Songz & J. Holiday Kick Off Tour+Trina & Keyshia "Got A Thang For You"

 Check out Jay-Z's brand new video for "I Know": And I'm sure Papa Kravitz is so proud of his lil Zoe.  At least now we know why Zoe looked like a Chuckie doll when she first cut her hair. Or maybe not since the video isn't all that clear on that. Chick's still fabulous though. A rep from The Academy Awards has issued a public apology via press release to Whoopi Goldberg for their snubbing of her. Catch the backstory here if you're late. The producer tells People.com that they didn't mean any harm and he feels really badly about it. Boo hoo. UPDATE: And she accepts the apology. J. Holiday got out the slammer in time to kick off his tour with Trey Songz in Chicago last night.  Here's some exclusive pics: Now he know he's cold. Check out Trina's leaked new single "I Got A Thang For You" ft. Keyshia Cole. [audio:01_i_got_a_thang_for_you_bmf.mp3] I would have liked it better as strictly a Keyshia Cole track.

[quote comment="42429"]India Arie syndrome ? WTF..India Arie has such a fabulous soul..I don't understand why anybody would have anything bad to say about her..I hate to say this..but if India Arie was light skinned, people would be giving her more props...its a dang shame..Whoopi and India Arie are two different kinds of people..India Arie has more pride and respect for herself than most of the singers out now..[/quote] um.. that was her entire point, the fact that people are snubbed if they dont fit an ideal of beauty. you're not very bright.

[quote comment="42659"]Ok, I

[quote comment="42659"]Ok, I may be a little late with this, but my take on "I Know" is not that it's about a heroine addiction, but it's Jay-Z comparing the love/sex that he can give the girl to heroine. He's so good that he'll have really one big metaphor.[/quote] I agree... he mentions 9/12 weeks to 12 steps in his lyrics. For those of you who dont't know 9/12 weeks was a little freaky deaky (sp) movie that came out in the 80's with Micky Rouke and Kim Basinger... they were hooked on each other through sex.... JMO

[quote comment="42522"]*yawn*

[quote comment="42522"]*yawn* over this whole whoopi nonsense. why is everyone else beefing if she isn't? ...making a big "to do" over nonsense cheapens and weakens the struggle, and makes us look like overly sensitive, perpetual whiners. it's no wonder YT doesn't respect and take us seriously.[/quote] But is it really "nonsense"? The Oscars is part of the fabric of film and has become a historic event. This year, they were focusing on its 80 year history and for each segment, they focused on all who contributed to its history. Whoopi is part of its "hosting" history, and if they were acknowledging all members who hosted, she should have been there, regardless of whether she was later acknowledged for her acting. Those of you saying she should get over it because she was later given her props for acting...I'm sorry, but I don't agree. We ALL want to be acknowledged for the roles we serve in life--whether mother, wife, sister or whatever, and I think Whoopi (and her co-hosts) are in the right to say that she was not recognized (especially as she was the first female, black at that, to host the show) and that was wrong. She wasn't whining. Wanting to be acknowledged IS part of the struggle because not being given credit for our contributions leads to being dismissed, or worst yet, forgotten.

I agree with you Mee and Chelly's Two Cents. Notice how the exec said he "will" call her to tell her sorry. Why not call her BEFORE talking to People.com?! Seriously, seeing her choke up like that brought tears to my eyes. Damn shame.

I was there at the concert IT

I was there at the concert IT WAS AWESOME!!! So refreshing to see guys who can actually sing and have talent singing LIVE and without backup tracks! Plus their bands were HOTT, some extremely talented musicians. Good singing and great music, what more can u ask for? Trina is so played, she went out of style with the "Baddest Chick" song she no longer has relevance. I love this song by Jay-Z, video isn't special but if I get to hear the song it's worth watching. :-)

Why is it when something

Why is it when something happens to a black person somebody must insist on the light skin dark skin issue? Grow the eff up. Black is black to everybody else except black ppl. Please stop the foolishness. Something screams "I'm gay I'm a homo I like men !" about Trey Songz. He needs some meat on his bones. Although I will be going to see he and J....I just pray he keeps his shirt on.

[quote comment="42522"]*yawn* over this whole whoopi nonsense. why is everyone else beefing if she isn't? sherry brought it up on the view - not whoopi. she seemed a little uncomfortable with the entire topic. and she didn't cry because she got "snubbed." she cried because she was touched by her co-host's concern and compliments. there are much more important issues facing black americans. making a big "to do" over nonsense cheapens and weakens the struggle, and makes us look like overly sensitive, perpetual whiners. it's no wonder YT doesn't respect and take us seriously.[/quote] Thank you! Mocha, you're a genius. I completely agree. Although I did think that whole segment on The View felt a little staged. I think it was definitely talked about naturally in the makeup room before the show, and then happened again on air to force an apology.

As for Jay it kinda made me

As for Jay it kinda made me feel like the first time I saw FLASHING LIGHTS by Kanye. It makes u think out the box and the song is about that China White so I think it would be a little crazy. Ms.Trina need to go back to her old self and get off Weezy, he obviously aint worried about her ass.

I can tell you aren't dissing India I'm a fan of hers and I know she has not had as much success b/c she is not light and she won't sell out. She keeps it real. Alicia Keys came out the same time as India and you see who is shining? Alicia. Not to take anything from Alicia, both ladies are SUPER talented.

He is not rappin as a man. He's rappin as though he is heroin. She is high. She's a dope fiend- hense the hair; being paranoid when the car passes; standing on a street corner. The only places she looks half normal is when she is high- which is what most people on drugs believe- reference good old rehab Amy. When she does see the guy, he is faceless- probably because they couldn't show her actually shootin up in the video and have it make TV. Man=Drugs=what she likes and loves. Then it clips back to her being high. Watch it again and catch the metaphors...
