Last night, the Queen Bee, Lil Kim took the stage at M2 Mansion in NYC, which attracted a cast of characters and adoring fans that know and love her from the indelible Bad Boy era. It has to be nice to still have name recognition in the industry — Lil Kim was a big hit on Dancing with the Stars — but for her actual music career to be on a flat line? That’s something else. Her last album The Naked Truth was released nearly five years ago. Wiki word is in 2009 Kim was working with the Trackmasters (Poke and Tone), but the project crumbled over creative differences.more..
On Thursday, Lil Kim and Derek Hough, her Dancing with the Stars partner, were spotted at the LIV club in Miami. The night before, they were unceremoniously voted off the show. As the picture confirms, Kim said the end of prime-time exposure wouldn’t put an end to their ‘friendship.’ What’s next for Lil Kim? Album? No. Movie? Yeah, right.
Kim is hopping on a laptop to write a tell-all-book about the 10 months she served between 2005/06 for perjury in the Philadelphia Federal Detention Center.more..
Missed her last week, but last night I checked to see how Lil Kim was doing on Dancing with the Stars. Turns out she is doing just fine. With a 50’s Jive theme, Lil Kim and Derek got the highest scores of the night 10-8-10 = 28 points! One of the judges, Carrie Ann (?) said, “I don’t know how you do it, you bring such pizzazz.. That was just mindblowing!”
I don’t think she’s ever seen the “Lady Marmalade” video: Kim’s been dancing for years. She’s not Lawrence Taylor or David Alan Grier stepping in someone else’s shoes.more..
Last night, for the first time ever, I watched Dancing with the Stars. Only for 30 minutes, but it was enough time to catch Lil Kim do her thing. For me, it was one of those happened to be in the kitchen and it was on kind of things. Before dancing, Lil Kim explained how she first came to watch the show..
“The first time I ever watched dancing with the Stars is when I was in prison. In prison you have to agree on what to watch and Dancing was the number one show. We watched it faithfully and we were so into it.”more..
A SpotLight Live employee has confessed to the murder of 24-year-old Ingrid Rivera. A quick wrap: This past Sunday night, Ingrid Rivera was partying at Spotlight Live for Lil Kim’s birthday. Her family hadn’t heard from her since then. On Wednesday night a maintenance worker found her beaten body in an electrical room on the roof of the club.
This morning a club employee, Sayed Rahman was questioned for hours and has confessed to the murder. No charges have been filed against him yet.more..
Last night Booty Collins and his band of merry men (and women) performed at the 2008 Milwaukee Summerfest, where they paid tribute to the Godfather of Soul. Yeah, James Brown passed over a year ago, but the concert series is Bootsy Collins way of acknowledging the man that taught him the basics of funk.
“Bootsy Collins joined the James Brown band at a ripe old age of 17. After the Godfather taught him to play on ‘the One’, he let Bootsy loose to do his thang. As long as it was James Brown tight, he could play all night.. Bootsy, and the original JB’s will play along with Catfish Collins, Jabo ‘on the one’ Starks, Clyde ‘the funky drummer’ Stubblefield, and Johnny ‘the Afrikan Groove-ulator’ Griggs.”
I’ll stop there because very few people know any of those names. However, with this ghostly picture of Vicki Anderson.. I couldn’t resist this clip.more..
Last night was one of the most fashionable events of the year, The 2008 Council of Fashion Designers Awards. This event was held at the New York Public Library. Most celebs that attended dressed to impress, but of course there were a few that were fashion challenged.
