Former ‘Moesha’ star Fredro Starr, who played ‘Q’ on the popular sitcom has revealed that he was…well…’serviced’ by Brandy during his time on the show. The explosive revelations came during Starr’s interview for the ‘C.O.D’ DVD. Check out theclip below (skip to 3mins 20 for the Brandy part):

Damn lol. How old was Brandy when ‘Moesha’ was on, again? Regardless, it was still pretty lame of him to start opening his mouth now about the supposed occurrences. Considering he has a project coming out, I guess that was the free publicity was rationale behind his loose mouth. It’s worked too. SMH…

The video for Mariah Carey’s latest single ‘I’ll Be Loving U Long Time’ premiered literally within the hour. Vid quality isn’t the best, but you now where you saw it first lol. Check it out:

I may be slightly partial to this one as I’ve been feeling the DJ Toomp produced cut for the longest. The video was pretty good; Mariah looks great too. With early radio spins being real healthy, Mariah looks like she may be onto a winner with this. Having felt kinda let down by the first two singles from ‘E=MC²’, this is definitely the most deserving of success from the LP’s releases thus far.

Random tidbit: Does anyone else smell a re-release of ‘E=MC²’ coming on, considering T.I.’s was put on the official video?

'Hancock': Will You Be Seeing It? Will Smith’s much-anticipated new superhero flick ‘Hancock’ was simultaneously released in both US and UK yesterday. Though generally receiving a ‘so-so’ response from most critics, the film is poised to deliver Smith’s highest grossing debut to date, with early projections touting somewhere in the region of $80 Million being grossed in its first weekend.
So with that said, That Grape Juice wants to know if you’ll be going to see ‘Hancock’. If not, why? If you’ve seen it already, your view?

Kanye West Teams Up With Louis VuittonThe self-titled ‘Louis Vuitton Don’ Kanye West has collaborated with the fashion house to produce his own line – for both men and women. Check out the report via NME:

The rapper showed up at the Vuitton show in Paris’ Jardins de Bagatelle on Friday (June 27) and told wwd.com ”I’m here for Louis” before revealing that he is working with the fashion giant on designed a men’s shoe line.

West, who was dressed entirely in his own clothing designs, also told the fashion site that he is working on a women’s wear collection which will debut this fall.

After all that free promo, it’s about time!

Any thoughts?

Re-affirming the fact that he’s he a complete a**, Bow Wow called out former collaborator Omarion on a remix of Hot Stylez ‘Looka Boy’. Dissing Omarion for, among other things, his ‘tight jeans’, it’s hard to believe it was just a few months ago that he was touting him as the Prince of R&B. Bow also takes a dig at the Raz-B/Chris Stokes situation. Check it out:

A mess. I’m assuming the terrible performance of their joint LP ‘Face Off’ may have been the cause for this break-up rift.

Pharrell To Have Tattoos Removed According to Now Magazine, rapper/producer Pharrell Williams is set to have his tattoos removed:

Pharrell Williams plans to use skin grown in a test tube to cover the tattoos on his arms. The N.E.R.D. frontman is bored of his existing designs and hopes to start afresh with the help of a pioneering graft technique. ‘It’s going to be pricey, but f*** it, it’s worth it,’ he says. ‘I got fire on my arms. I don’t need fire on my arms! I’m a grown man.

Good on him. I think some are going a lil’ overboard with the tatts and not really thinking what it’ll look like/or mean to them when they’re older.
