Overprotective Dads Set Dating Rules For Daughters

25 07 2008

There are good reason for the words: “daddy’s little girl.” But the mantra can also become a burden for some grown girls. Many young ladies who have the privilege to have their father around can sometimes find it frustrating when their so-called Dads become nuisance to their relationships.

As parents, there should be a boundary to how nosy fathers can be to grown-up kids’ affair. Full monitoring is perfectly fine when kids are young but at college-age (17-up), I think parents should back off a little bit. Being overprotective or helicopter parents can backfire. Some kids would just rebel and start doing things contrary to what their parents want.

The father of American Idol star, Jordin Sparks (both inset), once said he would kill any guy who tries to date his 18 yrs old daughter. For such statement, I’d say he is an example of a jerky parent. He definately can’t be with his daughter 24/7.

The video below show another example of an over-zealot father setting the 9 rules for dating his daughter

Unwanted VA Beauty Becomes New York Queen

22 07 2008

This is a typical classic case of “one man’s garbage is another man’s treasure.” Obviously New York has good eyes for beauty than other cities in America. It is widespread seeing small-town hotties making it big, beyond their widest dream, after settling in New York. Leigh-Taylor Smith is a 22 yrs Virginia native who moved to Manhattan after losing some beauty contests in Virginia, for two consecutive years. Within a year in New York, she was crowned “Miss Brooklyn” last February. And yesterday, she won the State Crown for “Miss New York.” Not too bad for perhaps a village girl who relocated to NY last year. She’s vowed her next win would be Miss U.S.A, a title held by another small town girl, Tara Conner from Kentucky.

As this fate unfolded, many Virginians are proud of her. So exited they are that a major news headline in Virginia exclaimed: She’s from here!! She’s from here!!! Yeah right! losers; after you dumped her? But Ms Smith might not be getting too much love from many New Yorkers. There has been some residency issue since she won Miss Brooklyn. Luckily, she’s not an illegal alien; otherwise, some people could have asked for her deportation right away. Brooklynites had legitimate reason to beef on this. Why would they swallow the fact that someone who lives in Manhattan, another borough, and for less than a year could take away their crown just like that?  At the time, Ms. Smith couldn’t understand what the ado and hatred is all about. She once said: “I can’t believe all the ‘controversy’ of me taking the title back to Manhattan, I really didn’t expect it.” She told a Brooklyn news outlet.

The Brooklyn organizers came to her defense and issued a statement that they allowed outsiders to participate because there wasn’t enough interested candidates from Brooklyn. – OK, that is a lame excuse for the birds because I have seen better looking women in Brooklyn. – So what happened that this same lady went on to win the State title? Here is another reason from an executive of the New York pageant: “contestants must meet one of three prerequisites constructed by the Miss America Association: have permanent residency, be a full-time student or a full-time employee.”

That said, so out of sixteen contestants across the state of New York, there weren’t enough beautiful chicks? Or could we say because of the huge population here, native NY beauties have melted in the crowd that only  out-of-state hottie would stand out of many heads? Are we really looking closely enough? In my view, these successful non-NYKers (girls) have unparallel swagger that beats most NY beauties hands down. So, the judges must have been impressed by the girl’s attitude – that alone can make any lady stand out from a “sea of beauties.”

Hence, it’s no surprise that some city politicians, such as Anthony Weiner, want to enact laws that would allow easy flow of foreign beauties into New York show/fashion industry.  My advice to New York gals is: Polish Your Swagger!! Notwithstanding, I still love my NY girls; they are fun to be with and I wouldn’t trade them for some beautiful “country pumpkins.”

Tommy & Pamela: A Disgusting Marriage Model

2 07 2008

Feminists would argue that “what’s good for the goose is good for  the gander.” But when it comes to women sexing around, that rule shouldn’t be applicable. It’s a serious moral issue, especially when kids are involved, but not for Pamela Anderson.

Celebrities, by default, are the most salacious animals of humankind – with their druggy and pornographic lifestyles available for public consumption. Who are you going to blame in this tabloidly paparazzi-infested society? Lewd exposure of stuff that should be private abounds every where. CelebX sleeping with celebY and celebXX doing it celebYZ. Who really cares about what horny celebrities are doing except that they overdo it under the magnifying lenses of media jackals.

Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson’s marital-orgy is a ro-ro (roll-off, roll-on) which reignited again after years of divorce with back-to-back relationships with various sex partners. In the Rolling Stones Magazine, Lee said: “Pamela and the kids have moved in with me, it’s awesome, man. It’s definitely working. You can tell on the kids’ faces – they’re happy.” Of course, the kid would be happy. But that is not the full story behind the reunion, Mr. Lee. “We do it for the kids” is a cliché better saved for stuck-on stupid married couples. What would happen when the kids become adults and leave home. Break up again?

Lee-Anderson’s relationship exemplifies a real messed-up affair which has no moral value especially for their kids. Here is a lady who, during her first divorce, got involve with five men (there could be more), married two of them and divorced in sequence. Now she is back with her first beau. Her “tasted Johns” include estate developer Laurence Hallier, actor Stephen Dorff,  model Marcus Schenkenberg, singer Kid Rock, and Rick Salomon whose only major accomplishment is the porno tape he co-starred with Paris Hilton. I doubt if Tommy Lee had much luck in getting laid as his wife during the course of their break-up.

If there is any pain for a man in Tommy Lee’s situation, it is psychological. Men are neither wired like women nor could stand their women being banged by other men. Making it worse for Lee, Pamela’s sexcapes were well publicized. It would have boosted the man’s pride or overlooked if she did her thing privately. Tommy Lee really looks like a wimp right now. It is like saying is okay for married couples to divorce, sleep around with various partners for few years and then renew their marriage again.

Apparently despite his rock-star status, Tommy Lee is not a man of sexual ego or prowess. It’s no surprise that Pamela once said she is yet to meet a man who had it all sexually. Physically, Pamela Anderson hasn’t been all that dented with her free-for-all sex galore. But mentally, Tommy Lee would have to deal the s#*t she brought from ex-flames. She could say she carries nothing over from these men, but on a man’s mind it would be there.

It is this type of thought that wouldn’t let most men take back adulterous women. How can I knowingly take back a woman who has been decked – not by one motherf*rk@r but many? Please…there are “plenty of fish” – fresh ones: legally blondes with naturally endowed breasts, including virgins.

Ice T hit Soulja Boy: State of Rap not in ‘Ice Age’

26 06 2008

Isn’t it dumb for legendary Ice T, 49, who built a solid reputation in two decades, to ignite flames that could melt him? Or is Ice (T) too cold lately (being a retired rapper) that he thinks the best way to heat-up is to start a brawl with a hot rapper, Soulja Boy, 17? In what appeared to be (another) brewing rap-war between generational-gapped rappers: ‘old school’ Ice T accused ‘new school’ Soulja Boy of single-handedly killed hip-hop – in reference to Soulja Boy’s super-man lyric which Ice T dismissed as garbage. And then he told the boy to “eat a dick.” In entertainment industry where beefing between rappers has become a means to huge record sales, one who have thought that rivalry with fresh-face Soulja Boy would come from some new generation rappers but iconic rapper like Ice T.

No doubt, Ice T got it made even before Soulja Boy was born. And he (Ice T) bragged he is not looking for money – because he has all the money he could make. True, his success can not be disputed with eight albums and over thirty films under his belt; he is surely a force to reckon with in entertainment world. But it’s a colossal error for him to dis a rising artist like Soulja Boy. Among many reasons why “Ice” shouldn’t have melted so low are:

  • The two rappers are generations apart – 32 years difference is no joke. What worked in hip-hop during Ice T’s music career peak [hip-hop’s “Ice Age”] does not work nowadays, and vice versa.
  • Ice T should have been a mentor to the boy. Why not call the teenager and give advice instead of ranting him out publicly on YouTube.
  • For the fact that Soulja Boy was nominated for 2008 Grammy, Ice T, a music vet, should have known better the kid’s s#*t is tight – i.e. Soulja has huge following, at least among the youths, which could solidify him as a future mainstream rapper.
  • Ironically, Ice T is like “a ‘pot’ calling ‘kettle’ black.” Throwback, he helped pioneer raunchy lyrics mixed with gangster rap that glorify guns violent and degrade women. So on moral ground, little Soulja Boy beats Ice T.

The reasons list could go on. My view does not mean I am a fan of Soulja Boy, as I am too old for his lyric. Needless to say, I have Ice T’s music collection but none of Soulja Boy’s. I’m analyzing from Ice T fan’s standpoint which I am, but no too deeply. Ice T, a retired rapper who is now a full-time Hollywood actor should know that there would always be audience for any kind of music: good, shitty, cheesy or whatever. Music entertainment is a big pie, so to speak; and creative artists would always get their bites. Saying one rapper killed hip-hop is an understatement. Soulja Boy re-innovates hip-hop to his own style; otherwise his music wouldn’t be exploding. Word up!!

Cameron Diaz, P Diddy: ‘D’ Beauty playing with ‘D’ Beast

9 06 2008

This past week, the Media buzzed about Cameron Diaz’s latest companion who happened to be a ‘playa’ we all know too well. The dude born “Sean Combs” aka “Puff Daddy” aka “Bad Boy” aka “P. Diddy” aka “Sean John” aka what next…? – Phew!!! I’m having headache here. If a guy can have numerous aliases in his life time, then you need to wonder who this guy really is or just conclude that he is man of different characters.

Consequently, it would only be logical for someone like Diddy to thrive on varieties. Some people would say: So what? “Variety is the spice of life.” But variety could be a self-centered and exploitation behavior of seducing women, especially when a music mogul like P.Diddy is involved. Borrowing wisdom from John McCain’s book, “Character is Destiny,” It could be better said that “Character is Integrity.” Undoubtedly, P. Diddy must have gotten integrity in his business dealings otherwise he wouldn’t have been so successful. However, he has “zero integrity” as far as “love deals” are concerned.

Throwback, P. Diddy and his cohort, the late Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie, had lifestyle patterns of being circled by groupies [2 smartest-ass groupies of such encounters are Lil Kim and Faith Evan; both of whom made it big; thanks to Biggie]. Just as B.I.G. was allegedly dating the two aforementioned ladies simultaneously, he had a baby-mama which some claimed to be his common law wife.

This same approach has been a norm for P. Diddy who fathered two children from two different women [ex groupies? Possibly!], while having affair with Jennifer Lopez (J. Lo). When J. Lo became bygone, the Bad Boy was back cripping with one of his baby-mamas, Kim Porter. Two more babies, he was out on the street again looking for more lame chicks. Since his newest babies were born, there has been many reports of him romancing some ‘white chicks’ on the French Riviera and God knows where else… It was also buzzed that there are other faceless jump-offs includes his protégé turned singer, Cassie. And the most recent hi-profile babe attempt before Diaz was Eddie Murphy’s quickie wife, Tracey Edmonds.

Therefore, how in this world could Cameron Diaz hook with P. Diddy? If nothing else, the Bad Boy appellation is enough to make any woman [in her right sense] to run for the hills. If the Diddy-Diaz love-affair materializes, it could be the same old factors of ‘money’ and ‘power’ which can draw even A-listers women to suboptimal men. P. Diddy is what he is. Old habits of womanizing don’t die easily, and many times they never did. In my view, P. Diddy is not slowing down anytime soon in his escapades. He is out to taste very “woman race” on the surface of this planet. He had black Latino, and white chicks. It is only a matter of time before he goes hunting for some ‘Asian’ and ‘Eskimos’ chicks.

As for Cameron Diaz, the best way not to have a broken heart is not to expect anything much from a “rolling stone” like P. Diddy. Hey Cameron, “they say half bread is better than none.” So have fun baby, while it lasted and dust off your skirt when it is over; pretend as if it never happened.

Star Jones’ Ex Lover Reinvented, Displays Some Body-Asset

6 06 2008

Two years ago, we all know how one of The View’s talking heads, Star Jones, got involved with a “pretty ricky” called Al Reynolds (1st left inset) Some probably thought: why she is so crazy about the allegedly gay boy-toy. Well, this is it!! Now that their marriage is over, the loverboy is putting himself on the market again; Thanks to UnderArmour underwear brand, he got a shot at being a model, at least to display part of his natural asset that put Star Jones under his spell at first sight. Clearly, he is no Tyson Beckford or Djimon Hounsou [the two Calvin Klein poster boys]. But he got the ‘abs’ that could dazzle some lonely hearts. Who knows, the dude might be lucky to attract another famous lady, to further his agenda.

Fame aside, it’s obvious that the brother like them ladies “thick”; when his marriage broke up, all we could get from him and Jones is: “he said, she said” but one fact that was ignored by most people is that this guy was married to “fat lady” Star Jones. And when a black man married a fat chick, he would want her to remain fat because that ‘meaty’ figure is one reason he wanted the woman in the first place. Experiences have shown that confident ‘full-figure’ women could be really sexier than the ‘skinnies’. Perhaps, the untold story of their break-up is that Al Reynolds missed that ‘fleshy stuff’ after Jones shed her weight. And that “bony shape” is a no-no!! to a guy who has gotten used eating full flesh.

Despite what happened in his matrimony, there is no doubt that the guy would never lack; there is a lot full-figure women out there. But if he is really looking for another celebrity babe, Monique (above right inset) could be a perfect match and should be at the top of his targeted-list. The reasons are:

1.        He won’t miss his deflated ex-wife much because Monique looks like the real Jones’ twin sister.

2.      Monique is one hell of a “thick madam” who would never disfigure.

3.        Monique is more accomplished in show business and has fewer enemies than Star Jones.

And oh! and the brother has ranted out who he really is too, in some AP articles.

The “real” Star Jones turned “bony”

Tyra Banks: Beyond The Exposure Limit

2 06 2008

I am sitting right here and looking @ this curvy chick. I can’t take my eyes off her hips; I am thinking: is that her natural hips or padded? It surely looks like part of make-ups to me. Anyway, if I am privileged to have to see her completely nude, I could think otherwise. Enough of that distraction, the NY Times did a lengthy profile on Tyra Banks over the weekend. Thanks to a smart NYT’s reporter, Lynn Hirschberg, who must have spent days or a whole week at Tyra’s Villa. Imagine over 10 pages of articles plus ton of pix with different postures. Then, light + camera + action = minivideo. In short, the setup is enough to make ‘Tyra’ a monthly magazine enterprise.

Frankly, the whole ceremony looks like a special advertisement for Tyra Banks. Perhaps, a sign of bigger things to come. When I hit NYT site yesterday, I wasn’t really feeling the Tyra’s caption because I felt there is nothing new to know about her. But for hours, between NYTimes.com and other sites I visited, Tyra Banks’ picture just remained featured permanently on the front page competing with the New York Times logo. Then, I figured this must be something special and clicked through the entire pages. In fact, there was nothing more spectacular about her pictures. We all know she’s beautiful, what she did here-there, and how she got it made. Literally, it’s mostly the same tales she’s been telling in the media for years.

Personally, I suppose NYT should have used their good ‘publishing resources’ – spent on Tyra Banks – to promote those struggling models on “American Next Top Model” or those wannabes that line Madison Avenue. I mean, what more publicity could a power-house lady – with [inter] nationally syndicated shows – like Tyra needs. I suspect since the article emphasizes on ‘Brandability’, New York Times might be the brand consultant to promote Tyra Banks’ s signature. If that’s the case, it would only be ethical for NYT to give full disclosure to the public.

There is no doubt, the whole article is well-written and the video is cool, featuring her 275 made-up smiles. But I wonder how come it did not make it to the site’s ‘Most Popular’ list. Perhaps, some viewers saw the minivideo and thought she’s ‘unreal’ by giving Martha Stewart praises without mentioning Oprah, given the fact that her show is more similar to Oprah’s than to Martha’s [actually, she’s one of the few black chicks who pretend not to give a bam!!! about Oprah]. Or, it could be like I felt initially: some ignored the ‘featured profile’ because they think she’s too-every where. This means it’s not impossible that Tyra Banks’ over exposure could be reaching the point of “diminishing return.”
