Last night, celebs and those orbiting their stars, were on hand at The Wiltern in Los Angeles for the launch of DJ Hero. Anyone that had difficulty doing the whole pretending to be a rock star thing, can now simulate the skills of DMC Champs like The X-Ecutioners, Invisibl Skratch Piklz, or DJ Octo Arms. ← That’s a made up name, but aspiring turntabalists feel free to thief.more..
If you were going to a party this weekend, last night was the night to do so. Tyrese and Toni Braxton were among many people celebrating Memorial Day — Sunday night style — at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Tyrese must have had one hand on a drink and his Blackberry/iPhone in the other. Only one hand necessary for him to caption the picture up top.. “Poppin with Sexy Ass Toni Braxton!.. Damn I Love my life!.. She has unbroken my heart!.. LoL!..”more..
From could be to reality, last Thursday, Taraji P Henson was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button; look for her in the Best Supporting Actress category. The next morning Taraji was interviewed on The Early Show on CBS. She was ‘knocked out’ when the Oscar nominations were announced.. “I was comatose. ... I have a great group of friends, and they knew that I was gonna be angst. And they took me out the night before for a fabulous dinner. And then we went out for music and dancing just so I could have a light night and not think about it. And the tactic worked, because I got home. I was wiped out. And I was knocked out.”more..
You know the places, certainly know the faces. Last night Will Smith and Rosario Dawson were all smiles at the Mann Theater in Los Angeles. The red carpet was rolled out for the premiere of their new film Seven Pounds. Remember that? I wonder what seven pounds refers to. Does it tie into the surprise twist in the movie? If you have any interest in seeing this, you better be in a theater this weekend; once that quirk gets out you’ll find yourself, let’s say week two, watching the credits roll and thinking that was it? Kind of like knowing that Bruce Willis is Casper the Ghost in Sixth Sense or The Village is just off a six lane highway.more..

Representing la neighborhood, Eve and Ludacris were winners of the orange and gold statuetes; Tyrese and Tichina Arnold were on hand to cheer them on.more..
