Star Pages: Robin Thicke covers Billboard and speaks on not being able to cover VIBE

Robin Thicke is on the cover of Billboard magazine and inside he speaks speaks on VIBE:

"When I did a recent interview with Vibe magazine I asked, “Why can’t I get the cover? This is a magazine I love. If there’s one magazine that I’d want to be on the cover of, it’s Vibe.” Their response was they don’t have white artists on the cover; that the only white artist they’ve had on the cover was Eminem. I guess if that’s what it is, it is what it is. And I respect that because I live in a house with a black woman."

Thats messed up, I've always said good music is good music and you dont need to be a certain color to qualify it. Then again VIBE has always been true to its black community, I guess they don't want to "sell out"

What do you think?

Star Tube: J-Hud attemps the Star Spangled banner

Jennifer Hudson had the honor of performing the Star Spangled Banner at the historic DNC last night. Sadly, this performance did not knock anybody out of my top five list, but it was a admirable rendition. She has so much power in her voice she has to be careful to not lose control of her songs. But anyway, you decide.....

I spy a wedding Ring - Halle Berry edition

And what do we have here Ms. Halle? She was spotted walking around L.A. with a little bling on her ring finger. I remember her telling Oprah she would never get married again after her divorce from Eric Benet, but something is going on up in her and Gabe's hood.

I aint mad....

Solange Says "Love Me or Leave Me Alone"

Check out Solange's new video blog of her setting the record straight about the recent news clip circulating web.

To honor Dr. King and the major steps we have taken toward the realization of his dream here is a clip of that historic speech:

Amen Martin.

Who did it Justice? Melody Thorton vs. Rihanna vs. Dawn

So Melody Thorton of the Pussy Cat Dolls jumped on the Herve Leger bandwagon and rocked the same skirt at a recent Pepsi Event that Rihanna and Dawn wore first.

Now thats she's in the mix, Who did it Justice?

Project Runway Recap

Project Runway was interesting last night. The remaining designers had to use car parts (yes car parts) as materials for their challenge. The guest judge was Rachel Zoe . Lets see how our three favs faired with this challenge:

This jacket is made out of all seat-belts by the way...

They all did a great job. Per my usual, I wont mention the outcome but I will tell you that all my favorites were safe this week.
Catch Project Runway on Bravo every Wednesday at 9/8 central.

Star Tunes: T.I. hits #1 and Brandy's "Throw it all away"

Billboard is reporting: T.I. establishes the mark for biggest jump to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, as "Whatever You Like" soars 71-1 in its third week on the list.

T.I.P. enjoyed A No. 1 opening on Hot Digital Songs with debut-week sales of 205,000 downloads. "Whatever you Like" is the rapper's first No. 1 as a lead artist (he was featured on Justin Timberlake's 2006 chart-topper, "My Love") and his opening-week digital sum is the best by a rap track since Nielsen SoundScan began compiling download data in 2003.

Congrats T.I.

And here is another track leaked from Brandy’s new album 'Human'. The song is called "Throw it all away." The vocals are hot, the production is a little bit different than what I’ve heard in a while. Listen for yourself:

Star Casefiles: Suge Knight, OJ Simpson, and DMX

TMZ is reporting Suge Knight has been busted by Las Vegas for allegedly terrorizing and attacking his girlfriend. The former rap impresario was busted by Las Vegas cops for assault with a deadly weapon, possession of controlled substances and domestic violence.

The girlfriend claims he punched her in the back of the head while they were driving. She claims she tried getting out of the car, grabbed the steering wheel to cause an accident so someone would notice her peril. The car struck the curb and stopped. She fled from the car and allegedly Suge chased her, caught her and that’s when the cops came. Cops say they saw Suge kick the woman in the head and was wielding a knife in his hand.

This dude is crazy…he needs to be put away.

O.J. Simpson’s daughter Arnelle fought over his girlfriend, Christie.

The source says - Cops rushed to the Florida home of O.J. Simpson after his eldest daughter knocked him to the ground in a brawl over his girlfriend Christie Prody, sources said. “Arnelle had a fight with Christie over Christie’s behavior. That’s what started the whole thing. Christie has some problems with drinking, and Arnelle got mad. O.J. said ‘Don’t talk to her like that,’ and Arnelle pushed him.”

Arnelle, 39, called 911 in a fit of guilt after she toppled the 61-year-old on Sunday, giving him a minor head injury.

O.J. doesn’t need anymore spotlight on him, he and "Christie” better chill out.

DMX’s lawyer (former “Apprentice” contestant)Bradford Cohen, just worked out a plea deal with the judge that’s includes time served and about a $483 fine. The rapper could’ve faced up to six years.

You got lucky D, now stay away from those Wal-Marts!
