    Beauty, Brains and Ambition
    Tuesday. 9.19.06 10:08 pm
    No, no, no. Sit down. I am not about to get in a long winded rant on Beyonce. Quite the contrary. Today's headline is about of a trio of women. Each of whom are noted for either their beauty, their brains or their ambition.


    She would be the beauty. After listening to Kelis Was Here, her most recent CD, I was sure Kelis would make some noise with music lovers. The album is bangin'. But every time I try to sell someone on it, I realized that I'd always have to pull out her trump card to keep their attention; her beauty. Vocally, Kelis ain't shattering glass no time soon. But her visual is quite sickening. Her new image took her sexy up about three or four notches and reinvention among black girls is a hard thing to pull off.

    Soon I began to realize that Kelis' style and beauty is her gimmick. It is her selling point and at the end of the day you can't call up beauty on your playlist. Personality-wise she is cold fish; leaving a lot to be desired. Already rumors are flying that she'll be signing with Def Jam as soon as Jive finishes chewing her up and spitting her out. Hmmm, I wonder how she tastes.

    Michelle Williams:

    Michelle is Destiny's Child's snapple. Like Ashanti, she isn't #1 (Coke) and she isn't #2 (Pepsi). She's #3... with an appeal and taste all of her own. Michelle is who I would discern is the smartest in the group. The story goes that she was pawned off on Destiny's Child by Monica whom she used to sing background for. Her real name supposedly isn't Michelle but I remember in an interview a few years back she told a reporter that it didn't matter that she had to change her name, and it didn't matter that she wasn't the lead. All that mattered to her was she got to travel the world and sing... getting paid was just a bonus. Smart girl, although I am sure that footage has been destroyed.

    Despite what is reported on other websites, the song -- "Love Thang" -- that is floating around the internet is NOT a new song by Michelle. Although she is reportedly recording, Michelle is building her own audience through speaking engagements, professional team sports ownership and staying as far away from (DING!) as possible. Kelly, are you paying attention?


    Although Ciara has proven to be both smart and beautiful, it's her ambition that keeps her afloat the most. Her voice, airy and light at best. However, her drive to succeed in an already overcrowded field helped her find an open lane. A lane that is part Janet Jackson and part Aaliyah. Janet herself even admits that Ciara's most recent video "Get Up" from the Step Up soundtrack reminds her of herself.

    Ciara, with the help of peeps like Jazze Pha, Missy Elliott and Bangladesh made a dollar out of fifteen cents. There is no way you first heard "Goodies" and thought she would have one of the most-anticipated sophomore CDs. Her upcoming album is titled Evolution. I for one am very interested in seeing if indeed she experiences an evolution. "Get Up" is very "Goodies" but it's for a soundtrack and I am sure the movie house paid for a familiar Ciara. But trust, we are watching... and waiting.

    The new joint of the day "Beautiful Transformation" is by Brooke Hogan featuring Stacks and of course it's produced by Scott Storch.

    In my opinion, Kelis should be a model.

    Michelle should keep doing what she is doing.

    And I really like Ciara, so we'll see.

    Kelis' CD is bangin'? Aside from "Living Proof" I would say, not so much.

    Good morning.

    Posted by: nova at September 19, 2006 10:11 AM

    Good morning!

    Soulman-thank you for showing Ciara love. People always have something negative to say about her but they can never say she don't work hard and like you said she is ambitious.

    Posted by: Brandi<3 at September 19, 2006 10:11 AM

    Is it just me or does it seem like Kelis doesn't even care to be a singer? She jus doesn't seem passionate about it. IDK it's prolly jus me.

    Ciara gonna do the damn thing. She has found a way to be competitive but with a style of her own.

    Once you have carved your own lane, nothing left to do but let peeps follow you.

    Posted by: SOHH Soul Man at September 19, 2006 10:14 AM

    Hey SOHH.

    I can see your point on KELIS' beauty being the one defining thing about her (aside from the extra crispy fried voice). Actually, let me go ahead and say that NOW her beauty is what people know and love her for. BEFORE it was the hair and screaming. It seems to me that I am like on of the only people on this blog that still am not turned on by her album. And refuse to be sold by it. Simply because I don't think that she has talent. I love her to death- don't get me wrong. But, if I wanted to spend money on someone for their beauty, I'd turn to my mother.

    Ciara... I think that she relies mostly on her dancing ability. I mean, the only video of hers (song) that did not get rotation, was the one that she wasn't dancing in. It was some slow jam. I don't know. As a fan, I prefer to hear her less and see her dance more.

    No comment on MICHELLE. Lol. Actually, I have a comment, but I won't say it.

    What about artists like CLAUDETTE ORTIZ that can sing and are beautiful, but still don't get shine? Yesterday, I was wondering where she is going to fit in the whole scheme of things when her album drops...

    The dude Ryan from City High is also about to drop something.

    Claudette was hot in that song with Wyclef... what was it called? "Two Wrongs Don't Make It Right" or something like that.

    LL Cool J's Def Jam Dis Falling on Deaf Ears
    Tuesday. 9.19.06 10:04 pm
    For the record, Todd Smith was wack. And that horrifying lead single, no matter what old-school jumpoff they reworked, made that tired broad's singing skills look even worse than what I had first perceived.

    Sometimes, when your time is done, your time is done. And there's nothing you can do about it. He's been on it since '84, which makes him a legend, so all reverence is due in that aspect of it. But when your prime has passed, your prime has passed, and when all fails, there's no one else to blame but yourself.

    I almost fell over laughing in my seat when I read about LL Fool J standing next to 50 Cent, sucking him off, blasting Def Jam's promotional skills. While I agree that Def has failed to properly market more than a few of their artists, LL received all the "TRL", BET, and street team promo he could possibly get. And what's funny to me is that back in July, the next set of vinyl distributed nationally for LL was the 50 Cent-featured "Bump This," which was ... wack. Even after the second single, "Freeze," bricked and froze off into nonexistence, Def still took the risk of pushing yet another single. So blasting Def? Blasphemy.

    Hmmm... Sit and ponder this one: Is it the label's fault that the DJs didn't want to play this poor excuse for a club banger? No. Was it the label's fault that the program directors didn't want to add the stupid song to radio rotation? No. It is, however, LL's fault that Todd Smith had absolutely nothing to work with. So while he's blaming the label for his flopped LP, I haven't a clue. But then again, he is from Queens, so I guess this is where the 50 Cent dickriding comes from. Give me a break.

    Someone by the name of Dare Lewis wrote to me:

    "I'm kinda salty about LL rolling with 50. Over the years, I've found that he's always down for someone to pull his ass out of the fire but has never helped anyone get on in his entire career. For a guy who's been out since 1984, he's never put one rapper on. Even Heavy D put a nigga on.

    Todd Smith has to be one of the worst LL Cool J albums behind 14 Shots To The Dome & Walking With A Panther [excluding the more recent garbage]. LL is very critical of Def Jam, but he's acting like he gave them a 'hot' album to work with. He released a 'club' record as his first single with no street single.

    This negro is so disconnected with the streets it's not funny. LL is no longer street or pop. He's straight Hollywood. This dude doesn't even do mixtapes. Negro Please."

    Nigga please. If you think 50 cosigning you is making you look "cool" to the youngn's who only remember you from Phenomenon, then you're sadly mistaken. And I'm not saying this because I can't stand duke, but if you think 50 can save your career, then you've clearly lost your way. 50 can't even save the artists on his own roster. That corny single -- that did nothing -- should've said it all.

    Man up and take responsibility for your own or sit down and shut up. Why can't legends ever be satisfied?

    WTF Is A Ms. Peaches? Jay Putting Other Def Jam Folks On Backburner?
    Tuesday. 9.19.06 9:44 pm
    New video from Ms. Peaches, "In The Tub"

    SOHH Fam, we need to have a discussion. Now, I passed up the opportunity to really blast this "chicken noodle soup" foolishness because I thought if we ignored it, it would simply go away. I thought to myself that this was simply a slight detour that not just hip-hop, but the music industry in general, was taking for shock and entertainment value. And while this is months later, and that "song" is blasting all over airwaves everywhere, I still have faith that the foolishness will cease. Enter Ms. Peaches.

    Who the f*ck is the genius who took the time to actually write garbage like this? Who are these people who made a conscious decision to finance videos (this is the second from Ms. Peaches -- the first is "Fry That Chicken") for this nonsense. Better yet, who are the clowns in radio who actually add this mess to the station's playlist? We have to stop the foolishness people. Not only for the sake of hip-hop, but for the sake of people's sanity. People have begun to add Ms. Peaches and "Chicken Noodle Soup" as the new faces if hip-hop and hip-hop can become simply a joke. And no, it has nothing to do with "It's the South's fault since this Ms. Peaches is from Shreveport, Louisiana." The maker of "Chicken Noodle Soup" is from Harlem and damn if these two pieces of foolishness aren't cut from the same cloth. Wait, did Ms. Peaches just spit a whole line talkin' about "Here duckey duckey, here duckey duckey duckey?" Do better my people. Do better.

    So Jay shot a video for his new single yesterday supposedly releasing at the beginning of October. But word on the street is that even though his album is dropping after some of his Def Jam artists (like Nas), none of them have a single or video planned for release. Being the Hov fan that I am, I don't think it's intentional. But you never know.

    Check out pics from Jay's videoshoot yesterday in Monaco:

    You can listen to Lupe Fiasco's full new album over at AOL.

    The Jibbs "Chain Hang Low" Remix,
    Tuesday. 9.19.06 9:38 pm

    I've got the remix to the Jibbs' "Chain Hang Low" joint. But first I gotta defend mine for a minute, when I said Jibbs had some skills yesterday, I meant it. He possesses what it took/and takes to HOOK the generation that he's aiming for.

    Mic skills, don't put food on the table or else there would be alot of starving cats eatin' right now. We all know some. Like it or not, Jibbs' skills are AIMED in the right direction and the fish are bitin' like crazy. It is what it is.

    But yo, here's that remix ft. Young Joc, Lil’ Wayne, Rich Boy & Lil’ Mont.

    Speaking of Weezy F-Baby''' he's got that joint with Fat Joe "Make It Rain" out now.

    He might be the hardest working artist in the south right now. He's definitely the hardest working former Cash Money member by far. If B-Gizzle had Wayne's work ethic, the pendulum might be tilted differently right now. But BG, is still that ni66a though.

    The video for "Make It Rain," shot straight out of the MIA, is in the works now and being directed by Chris Robinson.

    On the MIA tip, err'body in ATLanta might as well get prepared to make your reservations for late January/early February and grab you a Vick jersey because It's Going Down...

    Flavor of Love: Beautuful's Clean, Dammit!
    Tuesday. 9.19.06 9:17 pm
    Ron Mexico doesn't see any cold sores. Do you?

    SOHH.com correspondent Anthony recently had the pleasure of conversing with the since-eliminated Kelly Jay, better known to us as Beautuful. Much to our advantage, reading and listening pleasure, Ant chops it up with the fellow Chicago native and gets her to come out of her shell more than even Flavor would have liked in the first official interview since her departure.

    As her namesake suggests, homegirl was for damn sure one of the prettiest girls to grace the series. I was well surprised that she got the boot. Unfortunately, ain’t enough misspelled beauty in the world to endure the herp if that indeed is what was poppin (or otherwise festering) on her grill.

    “I really don’t think it was fair because, you know, he said it may have had something to do with this whole cold sore thing. Now, if there was any truth to me having a cold sore everyone in the house would have had one. So I think that he should have probably looked into that situation before he just cut me and said that I wasn’t aggressive.”

    Agreed. I would have investigated before I sent Kelly Jay packing just based on the word of a few scallywhops playing The Housewife Game (and all failing miserably, if you ask me). This leads me to believe that he had other motives for sending The Beautuful One packing.

    The model/actor who do hurr (hair) on the side tells SOHH.com that she joined the show with the sole intention of getting to know Flavor better and hopefully walking away from the series with his affections. I know better than to base opinions on appearance, but what a mismatch this would have been had she gotten her wish.

    “Flav said that I wasn’t aggressive enough, or aggressive like the other girls. Well… I’m not the other girls and my approach is totally different—”

    Kelly drove home the point that she wasn’t standoffish, but refused to resort to ho-tactics to win Flavor Flav over. Unlike others who ass-clap morse code and give stooch facials to any man that still has at least 3 of his 5 senses, Beautuful maintained her reserve and is proud to say that she was able to walk away from the ordeal with her dignity intact.

    Contrary to a couple of accounts we received last season, she claims that the show is most certainly unscripted and spontaneous. However, completely in line with what we’ve already established, she feels the editing is slick as all get out and has purpose. On the subject of keeping shit real and respectful, she had a finger to point. One of the girls won her vote for "Fake Bitch of the Year."

    SOHH Anthony: Who would you say is the biggest drama queen?

    Kelly Jay: I would probably have to say Krazy.

    Strangely enough, she, Krazy and Shoulder Lean (Buckeey) hosted a party together in the Houston area this weekend. I wonder if there was any ill will at the affair.

    SOHH: In retrospect would you have done anything differently to stay on the show or maybe get to know him a little bit longer?

    KJ: Absolutely not because I feel like I’m real person and I was being myself and that’s all I can be.

    Real talk… I would hope.

    She cites having more hits on Myspace due to her involvement on the show. However, she wisely downplays how much being on the show will help her modeling career and other endeavors. Because well… it very well may not help. Shit, FOL alumnae have tried beefing with Ronaldinho to help their careers. It’s hard out there for a… FOL contestant.

    SOHH: If it wasn’t you who would you say… would be the person that you think was like, really there for Flav and the person that most deserving of winning.

    KJ: Honestly, I really couldn’t pick anybody... I think he would have to do the show all over again.

    That’s right. She said it, folks. Notta nann notta bitch would even fit besides her!

    Kelly still keeps in contact with Bootz and has had a few myspace hollerations with other contestants. Look for her in a couple of independent films in the near future. She's featured in Twista's calendar that will be released alongside his forthcoming album and she can also be seen cheesing it up on your favorite no-lye relaxer box.

    Oh, I wish I were joking. Peep her Myspace flicks.

    [email protected]

    Expect quite a few more of these. We appreciate Anthony taking care of this one for us. Daddy Mexico, however has interviews on-file with some of your favorite contestants… and much like last season, the shit is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
