Dogs becoming thugs’ ‘weapon of choice’

This is so sad....This what causes the stupidity known as BSL (Breed specific legislation) Thousands of innocent “pit bull type dogs” have already been murdered because people are too stupid to treat animals correctly. I wonder what breed will be next....

Dogs have become a “weapon of choice” for a rising number of young thugs, senior police officers have been told.

Deputy chairman of the Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) Cindy Butts claimed she believed there had been a significant increase in youngsters using the animals as weapons or to instil fear.

Her move follows an incident earlier this month in which a 39-year-old was attacked after he asked two dog walkers to control their animals in a well-to-do west London suburb.

Speaking at the MPA’s meeting in London, she said: “I am aware, anecdotally, that increasingly dogs are being used by young people, young men in particular, as either weapons of choice or to instil fear and intimidation.

“I wondered whether any analysis had been done across London to the use of dogs by young people either to commit crime or to instil fear.

“I have certainly noticed a significant increase, particularly of young people carrying some quite potentially dangerous dogs.”

The Metropolitan Police commissioner said it was a “very important issue” for public and officer safety which would be investigated.

One man was arrested and bailed in the wake of the attack on the 39-year-old in west London. The victim was walking home when he saw the men and their dogs, which began biting his ankles.

He shouted at the men to put the Great Dane and a Staffordshire terrier on the lead, and they then followed him into nearby Kinnear Road, where they set the animals on him.

One also produced a meat cleaver and began hacking at him with it, inflicting deep head wounds.

Thanks GOD, but no thanks.

I love my current home state until the vacationers come here.  Since the ocean is just a few miles away from here, this is a very personal story to me.

Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the Archangel, found Him resting on the seventh day. He inquires of God, “Where have you been?”

God sighed a deep sigh Of satisfaction and proudly pointed downward through the clouds. “Look, Michael, look what I’ve made.”

Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, “What is it?”

“It’s a planet,” replied God, “and I’ve put life on it. I’m going to call it earth and it’s going to be a great place of balance.”

“Balance?” inquired Michael, still confused.

God explained, pointing to different parts of the earth, “For example, Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while Africa is going to be poor. The Middle East over there will be a hot spot.” God continued, pointing to different countries, “This one will be extremely hot and while this one will be very cold anvered with ice.”

The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a large land mass with an ocean as it border and said, “What’s that one?”

“Ah,” said God, “that’s the Jersey Shore, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful beaches, rivers, lakes, and climate. The people from the Jersey Shore are going to be modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, and high achieving people, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace.”

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then exclaimed, “What about balance, God? You said there would be balance! Everyone and everything seems so totally perfect in this place you call the Jersey Shore”

God replied wisely, “Wait until you see the assholes I’m sending down from New York every summer.

SNOOP DOGG REPORTEDLY ARRESTED AT AIRPORT

04/27/2006 6:42 AM, AP

Rapper Snoop Dogg and five associates were arrested after a fracas at Heathrow Airport that injured seven police officers, British media reported Thursday.

The Press Association news agency said members of the star’s entourage had hurled bottles of whisky and argued with staff at a duty free shop after being refused entry to a first-class lounge.

London’s Metropolitan Police said officers were called to “reports of a disturbance involving 30 people in a business lounge” at Terminal 1 of the busy airport on Wednesday.

When police told the group that they would not be allowed to board their flight, “a number of the group became abusive and pushed officers,” a spokeswoman said on the force’s customary condition of anonymity.

Six men were arrested on charges of violent disorder and affray and spent the night at London police stations. Police did not name the men, but said all were U.S. citizens in their 30s.

Seven officers received cuts, bruises and other minor injuries, the force said.

Snoop Dogg — real name Calvin Broadus, 34 — had been due to perform in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Thursday.

A former associate of Los Angeles gang the Crips, Snoop Dogg built his early career on recordings offering gritty details of gang life.

COUGH SYRUP

THIS IS CUTE…

The pharmacist walks into the store to find a guy leaning heavily against a
wall. He asks the blonde clerk “What’s with that guy over there by the wall?”

The blonde clerk responds:  “Well, he came in here this morning to get
something for his cough.  I couldn’t find the cough syrup, so I gave him an
entire bottle of laxative.”

The pharmacist yells: “You idiot! You can’t treat a cough with a laxative!”

The blonde clerk responds, “Of course you can!  Look at him, he’s afraid to
cough.”

The Bush administration is full of it.

These guys are full of one of two things ...
1. The administrationis full of people of high moral values.  The morals of these people are so high that they are willing to defy US law to bring attention to lies and illegal activities that the Bush administration is committing in the name of “National Security” or the “War on Terror”.

2.  The administration is full of people of extraordinary low moral values.  The morals of these scum suckers are beneath the scum that they suck.  They broadcast the names of covert individuals because they have been embarassed by reports of the lies of the administration in the name of “National Security” or the “War on Terror”.

The only thing that is for sure is that the current regime is corrupt. It is only corrupt because it has been in power for so long.  Once the current era of corruption is over, it will surely be replaced by another corrupt regime of a different party affiliation.  Any party in power for too long becomes corrupt.  Just ask the Communists.

I dare you!

There are countless questions that arise out of the CIA’s dismissal of a prominent intelligence officer, Mary O. McCarthy (no relation), for leaking classified information to the media. But one in particular springs to mind right now: Why isn’t she in handcuffs?

The CIA’s announcement of the dismissal did not refer to McCarthy by name. But its description of the officer’s conduct was unambiguous. According to the New York Times,

A C.I.A. officer has been fired for unauthorized contact with the media and for the unauthorized disclosure of classified information,” said a C.I.A. spokesman, Paul Gimigliano. “This is a violation of the secrecy agreement that is the condition of employment with C.I.A. The officer has acknowledged the contact and the disclosures.

The Times further reports, according to unnamed officials, that McCarthy “was given a polygraph examination, confronted about answers given to the polygraph examiner and confessed.”

The case against McCarthy, moreover, is said to involve not just a single illegal disclosure of the Nation’s secrets, but several. One prominent instance is reported to involve alerting the press that the CIA had arrangements with overseas intelligence services for the detention of high-level al Qaeda detainees captured in the war on terror — from whom the culling of intelligence is critical to the safety of Americans.

The so-called “black site” prisons were later publicized by Dana Priest of the Washington Post, jeopardizing not only the detainee intelligence stream but, just as importantly, America’s relationship with the cooperating governments — on whom we rely because of our global dearth of intelligence assets, and who are now incentivized to cut-off information exchanges because they believe (with some obvious justification) that our intelligence community is not trustworthy.

As a result of all this, McCarthy was fired, stripped of her security clearance, and escorted from the CIA’s premises last Thursday. Yet, she has not been arrested.

More alarmingly, according to government officials who spoke to the Washington Post, she may not even be the subject of a criminal investigation. Indeed, unnamed Justice Department lawyers reportedly told the Times that McCarthy’s “termination could mean she would be spared criminal prosecution.”

This is hard to fathom. Federal law, specifically, Section 793(d) of Title 18, United States Code, clearly makes it an offense, punishable by up to ten years’ imprisonment, for anyone who lawfully has access to national defense information — including information which “the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation” — to willfully communicate that information to any person not entitled to have it.

McCarthy had access to classified information about our wartime national defense activities by virtue of her official position at the CIA. The compromise of that information appears to have been devastating to U.S. intelligence efforts — in wartime, no less. CIA Director Porter Goss testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in February that the “damage” from leaks “has been very severe to our capabilities to carry out our mission.” The unauthorized disclosures were also, patently, a boon to several foreign nations, which have used it to put immense pressure — under the guise of international law — on countries that heretofore have been willing to run the risk of helping the United States battle terrorists.

In other words, this seems like a straightforward case. The Times suggests that “the C.I.A.’s reliance on the polygraph in Ms. McCarthy’s case could make it more difficult for the government to prosecute her.” That seems farfetched. Yes, lie-detector-test results — i.e., the actual findings about whether or not a person was truthful during a polygraph examination — are inadmissible in federal court. But so what? That has nothing to do with the underlying evidence of conduct. Nor should it render problematic any admissions the person makes — including any confession, such as the one McCarthy is reported to have given.

The only way a polygraph could complicate a prosecution would be if McCarthy was given immunity of some kind in exchange for submitting to it. That, however, is highly unlikely. In her sensitive job, McCarthy could no doubt be polygraphed as a condition of her employment — the government should not have needed to trade away any rights to get her to take the test.

Evidence aside, it is essential for policy reasons that this case be prosecuted aggressively. The intelligence community’s leaking of information to the media since 9/11 has been breathtaking. The Bush Justice Department’s response has not been inspiring.

Sandy Berger, the former national-security adviser who filched classified information from the national archives and then lied about it to investigators was, appallingly, given the sweetheart deal of the century: a guilty plea to a mere misdemeanor, no jail time, and even the prospect of getting his security clearance back after three years. In stark contrast, non-government persons, like the two AIPAC lobbyists scheduled to start trial shortly, face the possibility of years of imprisonment for passing information they were given by a former Defense Department official to a friendly government. (To be fair, the Defense Department official was prosecuted, although that is a long story for another day.) The public needs to know that there are not two standards of justice, and, worse, the kind of double-standard in which government coddles its own high officials while slamming ordinary citizens.

We can argue forever — and we probably will — about whether media people should be prosecuted for publishing secrets they are well aware will harm the nation and the war effort. Public officials, to the contrary, should not be a close call — they are in violation of both the law and a solemn oath.

An additional, compelling policy consideration is also at issue here. Mary McCarthy’s position — the post from which she is likely to have learned the most sensitive information at the heart of the leak controversy — was inside the CIA’s inspector general’s office. This is the unit that investigates internal misconduct. This is the unit to which government employees are encouraged to report government abuse or illegality so it can be investigated, potentially reported to Congress, and prosecuted if appropriate.

That is, it is the legal alternative to leaking national secrets to the media.

It is, therefore, the process that has to be protected if our intelligence community is to have credibility with the public and with the foreign intelligence services on which we are so dependent. If it becomes just another Washington sieve — a place where people who comply with their oaths and exercise professional discretion may nevertheless expect to find the information they confide trumpeted on Page One of the Washington Post — we are guaranteed to have much more leaking. And much less security.

Cleaning government’s own house in such weighty matters is one of the principal reasons why we have federal law enforcement.

CHILD DIES AFTER RUNNING INTO BURNING HOME TO FIND MOTHER

Heros come in different sizes, shapes and ages!

STEELTON, Pennsylvania (AP)—A 6-year-old girl who escaped a house fire early Tuesday died after running back inside to find her mother, authorities said.

The youngster did not realize that her mother had jumped to safety from a second-floor window.

Firefighters found the body of little Da-Onah Watts under a bed on the second floor.

Da-Onah and a 13-year-old cousin had been asleep on the first floor when they awoke to flames and ran from the house, said Police Chief Kenneth Lenker.

The older girl, Nesha Barely, lost her grip on Da-Onah as they escaped, Lenker said. Nesha told authorities Da-Onah kept yelling for her mother and went back in to try to find her.

A neighbor summoned help, but the heat and flames were too intense for police or firefighters to get inside. The home was destroyed.

Da-Onah’s mother, Myiaa Smith, 29, was not seriously hurt.

The fire appeared to be accidental and probably started in the laundry room, Fire Chief Gene Vance said.

Neighbor Evelyn Brubacher said Da-Onah was a sweet, well-behaved girl, and she and her mother were very close.

“Her mother watched her,” Brubacher said. “A lot of kids in this alley, they just run and run. Not that one.”

Steelton, just outside Harrisburg, has about 5,700 residents.

“This little kid played in the neighborhood. We waved at her,” the police chief said. “Everybody knew her. It’s a tragedy.”

Police Arrest Nude Man Stuck in Chimney

Now this is just stupid!

HAYWARD, Calif. — A man who spent five hours naked and stuck in the chimney of his stepmother’s home was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs, police said.

Police say Michael Urbano, 23, locked himself out of the house early Saturday morning and decided to get in on a cable TV wire through the chimney.

But the wire broke and Urbano fell, getting stuck about three-quarters of the way down. He was freed when a firefighter pushed him to safety.

“We get him up, and he’s naked as a jaybird,” said Hayward police Lt. Gary Branson. “He tells us he took his clothes off because there would be less friction going down the chute. We did find his clothes. So that part checked out.”

Authorities were called about 6:15 a.m. Saturday. A neighbor heard “faint, distressing” calls since about 2:30 a.m. and decided to call police.

Police say it probably wasn’t a comfortable few hours for Urbano.

“He’s not fat,” Branson said, “but he used to play football. He’s not that little.”

Man, Son, Neighbor Swallowed by Cesspool

HUNTINGTON, N.Y. — A 71-year-old man who went outside in the rain to pick up the Sunday newspaper plunged into a cesspool in his front yard, and his son and neighbor were sucked in when they tried to help.

The victims escaped, two with the help of firefighters, covered in raw sewage but not badly hurt.

Andrew Palladino said the soggy ground, soaked by two days of rain, gave way outside his Long Island home: “I walked across the lawn, and all of a sudden I disappeared.”

He yelled to his wife for help, and she threw a rope and called their son, Dan, who lives with them. The son said the scene “was like a horror picture.”

A neighbor who heard the commotion ran over to help — but the ground gave way again, swallowing him and the son. The neighbor crawled out and passers-by tried to hold onto the others until the Huntington Fire Department arrived.

Firefighters secured the ground, lassoed Palladino and his son and dragged them out.

It’s not the first time a cesspool — a pit that collects waste from toilets and sinks — has swallowed someone in Huntington.

In 2001, a man practicing archery in the backyard with his two children died when his cesspool caved in and consumed him. And in 1998, a Huntington Station man was rescued after he fell 65 feet into one.

Teens shut out on prom night at aquarium

By KRISTINA TORRES
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Published on: 04/25/06

An expected highlight of the year turned into a low point in their high school careers for a dozen or so promgoers.

Primped to perfection, almost all of them held prepaid tickets for their prom Saturday night at this spring’s hottest venue: the Georgia Aquarium. But instead of enjoying a memorable evening dancing the night away, the students were turned away at the door.

schools spokesman Dale Davis said Monday as he and aquarium spokesman Dave Santucci described the circumstances that left some students and guests of Lithonia High School still steaming after they were barred from their big night.

“I have no memories of my senior prom because they wouldn’t let me in,” said Lithonia senior Jamie Baker. He and his date, Lithonia junior Sadé Simmons, were among those who couldn’t get in. “I didn’t go to my junior prom,” Baker said. Now, he said, he’ll have nothing to tell his own children when they go to their own proms 20 years from now.

The school contracted for 740 guests to attend the prom, held from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, and aquarium officials say they staffed a security detail based on that number of people.

More people showed up, however. About 48 guests without tickets — friends and dates of students — were let in anyway, according to Davis.

Between about 9:30 and 10 p.m., the security staff balked. They told school administrators that no more people would be allowed to enter, tickets or no. About a dozen late-arriving guests did not get in. To make matters worse, they were told to clear the exit areas and wait across the street for their rides.

“We’re committed to having a safe and fun environment for proms here, so we have to have a certain ratio of security personnel to guests,” Santucci said. “We understand a prom’s special. It’s an unfortunate situation.”

The aquarium is scheduled to host 10 proms this season for schools from all over metro Atlanta.

Davis said Lithonia High students who didn’t get in the doors will be reimbursed any school fees and ticket costs associated with the prom. He also said those students who are juniors can use that money and “prepay” for next year’s prom.

On the aquarium’s behalf, Santucci offered a special makeup gift: a private dinner at the aquarium for those denied entry.

Students Baker and Simmons, who spent more than $500 on clothes, grooming and gas to get ready Saturday, weren’t sure what to make of the offer, however.

“I’m not going to get my prom back, am I?” Baker said.

Bush Eases Environmental Rules on Gasoline

I’m going to be honest I already keep my car tuned up and with ATL traffic in the morning and the evening I’m driving at an already snails pace now.  As far as car pooling goes, no one works where I work in my neighborhood or has to be at work/school as early as we do. So what other suggestions you got man?  I’m also concerned that we won’t be using additives such as ethanol to meet clean air standards! Until this gas gouging is over, all workplaces that can should institute a work from home policy for their employees to save the environment!

By NEDRA PICKLER

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — President Bush on Tuesday ordered a temporary suspension of environmental rules for gasoline, making it easier for refiners to meet demand and possibly dampen prices at the pump. He also halted for the summer the purchase of crude oil for the government’s emergency reserve.

The moves came as political pressure intensified on Bush to do something about gasoline prices that are expected to stay high throughout the summer.

Bush said the nation’s strategic petroleum reserve had enough fuel to guard against any major supply disruption over the next few months.

“So, by deferring deposits until the fall, we’ll leave a little more oil on the market. Every little bit helps,” he said.

Wholesale gasoline futures prices for June delivery dropped 8 cents a gallon to $2.10 on the New York Mercantile Exchange immediately upon Bush’s remarks.

Easing the environment rules will allow refiners greater flexibility in providing oil supplies since they will not have to use certain additives such as ethanol to meet clean air standards. The suspension of oil purchases for the federal emergency oil reserve is likely to have only modest impact since relative little extra oil will be involved.

The high cost at the pump has turned into a major political issue, with Democrats and Republicans blaming each other for a problem that is largely out of Congress’ control. Republicans are worried that voters paying more than $3 per gallon would punish the party in power. Democrats want to make that happen.

Bush said that high gasoline prices are like a hidden tax on consumers and businesses, although he said the nation’s economy was strong. He urged Congress to take back some of the billions of dollars in tax incentives it gave energy companies, saying that with record profits, they don’t need the breaks. He urged lawmakers to expand tax breaks for the purchase of fuel-efficient hybrid automobiles.

The president said Democrats in the past have urged higher taxes on fuel and price caps to control fuel expenses, but he said neither approach works. Instead, he called for increased conservation, an expansion of domestic production and increased use of alternative fuels like ethanol.

Bush said high energy prices are disturbing.

“Our addiction to oil is a matter of national security concerns,” the president said in a speech to the Renewable Fuels Association, which advocates alternate energy sources. “After all, today we get about 60 percent of our oil from foreign countries. That’s up from 20 years ago, where about 25 percent of our oil came from foreign countries.”

Bush said gasoline prices are expected to remain high throughout the summer and “that’s going to be a continued strain on the American people.”

Bush said the Federal Trade Commission, the Justice Department and the Energy Department were investigating whether the price of gasoline has been unfairly manipulated. The administration also contacted all 50 state attorneys general to offer technical assistance to urge them to investigate possible illegal price manipulation within their jurisdictions.

During the last few days, Bush asked his Energy and Justice departments to open inquiries into whether the price of gasoline has been illegally manipulated.

It’s unclear what impact, if any, Bush’s investigation would have on prices that are near or at $3 a gallon or more. Asked if Bush had any reason to suspect market manipulation, White House press secretary Scott McClellan responded, “Well, gas prices are high right now, and that’s why you want to make sure there’s not.”

The administration sent letters Tuesday to state attorneys general urging them to vigorously enforce state law “against any anticompetitive, anticonsumer conduct in the petroleum industry.”

“Consumers around the nation have expressed concerns about what they have perceived as anticompetitive or otherwise unfair conduct by the world’s major oil companies,” said Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Federal Trade Commission Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras. Their letter said federal agencies had substantially increased efforts to monitor, detect and prevent any violations of the law.

House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., urged Bush in a letter Monday to order a federal investigation into any gasoline price gouging or market speculation.

“There is no silver bullet,” Frist said Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” but “we need to make sure that any efforts at price-gouging be addressed and addressed aggressively.” Meanwhile, Frist said, consumers should take steps to conserve gasoline — drive at slower speeds, tune up car engines for maximum efficiency and carpool.

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada dispatched his own letter, calling for a multi-pronged approach to restrain gas prices.

A survey of pooping techniques at the workplace.

Normally I just make an announcement on the intercom and offer money to whoever can stand the aftermath.

We’ve all been there but don’t like to admit it. We’ve all kicked back
in our cubicles and suddenly felt something brewing down below. As much
as we try to convince ourselves otherwise, the WORK POOP is inevitable.
For those who hate pooping at work, following is the Survival Guide for
taking a dump at work.

CROP DUSTING: When farting, you walk really fast around the office so
the smell is not in your area and everyone else gets a whiff but doesn’t
know where it came from. Be careful when you do this. Do not stop until
the full fart has been expelled. Walk an extra 30 feet to make sure the
smell has left your pants.

FLY BY: The act of scouting out a bathroom before pooping. Walk on in
and check for other poopers. If there are others in the bathroom, leave
and come back again. Be careful not to become a FREQUENT FLYER. People
may become suspicious if they catch you constantly going into the
bathroom.

ESCAPEE: A fart that slips out while taking a leak at the urinal or
forcing a poop in a stall. This is usually accompanied by a sudden wave
of embarrassment. If you release an escapee, do not acknowledge it.
Pretend it did not happen. If you are standing next to the farter in the
urinal, pretend you did not hear it. No one likes an escapee. It is
uncomfortable for all involved. Making a joke or laughing makes both
parties feel uneasy.

JAILBREAK: When forcing a poop, several farts slip out at a machine gun
pace. This is usually a side effect of diarrhea or a hangover. If this
should happen, do not panic. Remain in the stall until everyone has left
the bathroom to spare everyone the awkwardness of what just occurred.

COURTESY FLUSH: The act of flushing the toilet the instant the poop hits
the water. This reduces the amount of air time the poop has to stink up
the bathroom. This can help you avoid being caught doing the WALK OF
SHAME.

WALK OF SHAME: Walking from the stall, to the sink, to the door after
you have just stunk up the bathroom. This can be a very uncomfortable
moment if someone walks in and busts you. As with farts, it is best to
pretend that the smell does not exist. Can be avoided with the use of
the COURTESY FLUSH.

OUT OF THE CLOSET POOPER: A colleague who poops at work and is damn
proud of it. You will often see an Out Of The Closet Pooper enter the
bathroom with a newspaper or magazine under their arm. Always look
around the office for the Out Of The Closet Pooper before entering the
bathroom.

THE POOPING FRIENDS NETWORK(P.F.N): A group of co-workers who band
together to ensure emergency pooping goes off without incident. This
group can help you to monitor the where abouts of Out Of The Closet
Poopers, and identify SAFE HAVENS.

SAFE HAVENS: A seldom used bathroom somewhere in the building where you
can least expect visitors. Try floors that are predominantly of the
opposite sex. This will reduce the odds of a pooper of your sex entering
the bathroom.

TURD BURGLAR: Someone who does not realize that you are in the stall and
tries to force the door open. This is one of the most shocking and
vulnerable moments that can occur when taking a poop at work. If this
occurs, remain in the stall until the Turd Burglar leaves. This way you
will avoid all uncomfortable eye contact.

CAMO-COUGH: A phony cough that alerts all new entrants into the bathroom
that you are in a stall. This can be used to cover-up a WATERMELON, or
to alert potential Turd Burglars. Very effective when used in
conjunction with an ASTAIRE.

ASTAIRE: A subtle toe-tap that is used to alert potential Turd Burglars
that you are occupying a stall. This will remove all doubt that the
stall is occupied. If you hear an Astaire, leave the bathroom
immediately so the pooper can poop in peace.

WATERMELON: A poop that creates a loud splash when hitting the toilet
water. This is also an embarrassing incident. If you feel a Watermelon
coming on, create a diversion. See CAMO-COUGH.

HAVINANOMELET: A case of diarrhea that creates a series of loud splashes
in the toilet water. Often accompanied by an Escapee. Try using a
Camo-Cough with an Astaire.

UNCLE TED: A bathroom user who seems to linger around forever. Could
spend extended lengths of time in front of the mirror or sitting on the
pot. An Uncle Ted makes it difficult to relax while on the crapper, as
you should always wait to poop when the bathroom is empty. This benefits
you as well as the other bathroom attendees.

FOXX ON THE PROWL IN LONDON

In town to promote ‘Unpredictable’ album, singer/actor keeps playboy image alive.
image

*Jamie Foxx is keeping the British tabloids quite busy during his stay in London, where he has been promoting both today’s European release of his J Records/RCA album, “Unpredictable” and his player/pimp image among the ladies. 

The Mirror reports of his antics during a release party held by RCA at London’s Cafe De Paris, where the actor reportedly had an extra special VIP room backstage equipped with four double beds covered in red velvet sheets and rose petals, all accented in matching red, low lights.

During the concert, Foxx reportedly got his slow grind on with British rapper Estelle after pulling her on stage and demanding that she kiss him. He told the audience: “Check out her lips. Kiss me, keep your lips there, mmmmmmm.”

With a number of black entertainers in the audience, including singer Sade, actress Caroline Chikezie and host of BBC’s “T4” June Sarpong, Foxx announced his love of “chocolate ladies.” However, at least two of the four women he escorted back to his special VIP area were Italian and South American. When reporters asked what he planned to do with them, his handlers told The Mirror: “What goes on in the boudoir, stays in the boudoir.”

With much Cristal on hand, Foxx and his harem remained behind closed doors for about an hour before he emerged, looking “disheveled” and grinning “as he did a quick victory dance,” the paper reports.

After the private party, Foxx and his 11-member entourage moved to Pangaea nightclub, where he reportedly kept company with Sugarbabe singer Keisha Buchanan. He left the venue, however, with another woman, the paper noted.

Meanwhile, Foxx told The Sun newspaper that he is destined to save the R&B music genre. 

“I am the savior,” he said. “I’m definitely going out there with my mic and my shield to declare: ‘I am here to save R&B’. I will have the people saying: ‘Sire, there is a man at the musical gates saying he is here to save R&B.’”

BOW WOW BITES BACK

Rapper responds to verbal bullets fired last week by Lil’ Romeo’s daddy, Master P.

*You knew it was coming. Rapper Bow Wow wasn’t about to sit quietly while the father of his rival, Lil’ Romeo, talked smack about him and suggested that success has gone to his 19-year-old head.

“I can’t understand all this, but I guess that’s how it is when you ain’t getting no attention,” Bow Wow told AllHipHop.com. “You can hear me on the radio all day, every day. You [Lil’ Romeo] can’t sell no records, and your daddy is on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’”

The beef apparently has roots in Bow Wow’s last single, “Fresh Azimiz,” which proclaims that he’s “18 and making more than your dad.” Master P felt that line was aimed directly at his son. 

“The crazy part is the line that got them all bent outta shape was an old LL line (from 1987’s “The Do Wop”). That shows how much they know about hip hop.”

As previously reported, Master P confirmed to AllHipHop.com that the artists ran into each other backstage at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Award show, on April 1. According to the No Limit mogul, Bow Wow refused Romeo’s efforts to discuss their tensions and instead, went back to his trailer. 

In P’s interview, he suggested that Bow Wow step into a boxing ring with his son and settle their beef in an old-fashioned fist fight to be aired on Pay-Per-View, with all proceeds donated to charity.

In response, Bow Wow said: “If Romeo wanna make some real money, come sign with me. Then, he wouldn’t have to pull these stunts ‘cause there ain’t No Limit over here.”
