Taraji P. Henson snubbed on TV Guide’s cover story of her new CBS drama “Person of Interest”...

Carter_096rtifc1It was only yesterday that I posted on my Top 10 list as the #1 issue in Hollywood that needs to find an answer and resolution the apparent air of Blaxploitation needs to cease.  And now today, the current news headlines reports that actress Taraji P. Henson was snubbed on TV Guide’s featured cover story for her new CBS drama “Person of Interest”. 

I could go into a long and drawn out speech, but I don’t have the energy nor do I feel impelled to state the obvious – Hollywood is still racist in the year 2011!  Really people, this has to end.  I dunno if I was more shocked about the snub or the fact that out of the 3 leading roles in the show, Oscar nominee Taraji is easily the most recognizable face in the cast lineup.  The show also stars well-known actors Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel as two unlikely partners, who are being sought after by Henson’s character. 

“Person of Interest” is set to premiere September 22, 2011 a 9 p.m. (eastern\pacific), so please be sure to support the ENTIRE cast and hopefully the next cover article will feature ALL of its lead characters.

Justus’ Top 10 of the Day: Music, Movies & Celebrities edition(From Lil Wayne to Charlie Sheen, Chaz Bono to Beyoncé, plus more!)…

top10The celebrity blogosphere never ceases to amaze or amuse us with it ridiculousness, shock value and utter foolishness at times.  Today’s TOP 10 list deals exactly with these type of celebrity moments and happenings recently that have left me and countless others wondering – really, no really?!

Justus 10 Top 10 of the Day: Music Movies & Celebrities:

<<enter caption here>> at Siren Studios on February 19, 2011 in Hollywood, California.10. Several questions addressed to the members of Young Money…  Who is “Marvin” and why is Drake depressed in his room?  How is it that Lil Wayne can kiss his mentor Baby aka Birdman on the lips, call him Daddy, wear women’s clothing, and yet this dude is still considered one of the hardest rappers in the game? And who for one minute believes that he really sold 1.1 million albums in its first week with no “help” aka completely purchased by individual fans? Nicki Minaj… I love you, but even real Japanese girls don’t rock the Harajuku look anymore!  You making Lil Kim look real good right now!

rayj-fabolous19. Some celebrity do anything for attention, *cough* Ray J!  …really?  Who makes up a rumor about getting beat up?  Wouldn’t it be smarter to make a rumor about somebody other than a “non-factor”?  I see why you and Whitney are friends now, you need to get off that stuff homey and seek counseling.

Basketball Wives LA 20118. “People who live in glass houses, shouldn’t through stones”.  The women of Basketball Wives L.A. really are something.  I don’t understand, okay maybe I do.  First of all, why is everyone trying to dog Draya and she’s the only one who actually has a real job on the show?  Everyone talking about she a gold digger and a groupie – first of all there is only one real wife on the show, one other is a common law long-time domestic partner, the rest are girlfriend’s, baby mama’s and ex’s and yet ya’ll wanna call Draya out as being the groupie and ya’ll the ones living off men and have nothing else productive to do in your lives.  Heck even the “original” Basketball Wives cast member Tami Roman does charity work!  And even Evelyn Lozado is a business woman with investments!  All of you COLLECTIVELY need to have a seat! P.S. – That one girl who looks like Phylicia Rashad before she went on Weight Watchers kills me with her boughettoness!

fantasia-barrino-and-antwaun-cook-photo7. Fantasia… Okay… I was one of those people who rode with Fantasia through her ups and downs, but now she has just gone too far.  So we all know that she’s pregnant by a married man.  She then later went on record as to say this baby was her gift from God. *pause* and now it is revealed that she will be having a baby shower on October 1st.  No big deal you say?  Well that also happens to be the anniversary date of her baby daddy and his wife.  Fantasia, you know you ain’t right!  See you already on bed rest, but in addition, you AND you’re unborn baby BOTH need to have a seat!

amber-rose-and-wiz-khalifa6. Whiz Khalifa and Amber Rose… why?  Just why?  If there were two people who made for each other it would be these two…*deep sigh*  …and yes their picture is PURPOSELY this small because I can’t stand to see their faces!


charlie-sheen-205. Why is everyone upset that Charlie Sheen is now sober, apologetic and taking a humble approach to his whacky past year?  Really people?  That’s one less celebrity funeral we needed to see this year!  Have we not learned anything from Amy Winehouse?  Charlie was a train wreck that not only was bound to happen, but one we just knew would crash, it was only a matter of time.  I was actually proud of him during his interview with Jay Leno, and you idiots have the audacity to shun him at an industry event, really?!?! I’ll take non-neurotic Charlie for 200 Alex!

chaz-bono-dwts_620x3504.  It’s funny people are in such an uproar about Chaz being allowed to be on Dancing with the Stars, and the likelyhood of a major controversy with censors, families and the general public, however the real issue at hand is that Chaz Bono simply is not a star!  Maybe I’m just a cynic!?


Swizz-Alicia-Mashonda3.  …try sleeping with a broken heart! #SUBLIMAL SHADE





beyonce-kelly-rowland2. The Women of Destiny’s Child.  First of all, why is Jay Z’s baby bump bigger than Beyoncé's? And why does her “baby bump” keep appearing and disappearing every other day? Second, I am so sick of people sleeping on Kelly Rowland.  Now she’s reverting to selling sex in every song, video and photoshoot and I am tired of seeing it.  Motivation was not even one of her better songs and it’s the one that has given her the most success. *Kanye shrug*

blaxploitation1. In the year 2011, the masses are are still capitalizing on Blaxploitation, i.e. “The Help” being the #1 movie in the country for multiple weeks beating out other heavy hitters, Naturi Naughton as the token black girl in “The Playboy Club”, the token black girl on the new “Charlie’s Angels”, people trying to discredit Leila Lopes, the former Miss Angola and the reigning  Miss Universe 2011 or any one of the current season of any VH1 reality shows… Time to let this stigma go!

YouTube comedian LaBelleOfTheBall2’s hilarious parody of Patti LaBelle and her diva friends…

389904590I have been following a hilarious YouTube series for a while, featuring parodies of Patti LaBelle and her celebrity friends and enemies, like Beyoncé, Fantasia, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and Maya Angelou just to name a few.  The young lady behind the series is so funny and every new video she puts out is even better than the last. 

This time around she parodied Patti’s god-daughter Mariah Carey with a spot on speaking voice and singing parody you literally won’t believe when you view it!  Check out the video below, and be sure to subscribe to user LaBelleOfTheBall2 on YouTube [] and follow her alter-ego on Twitter @PattiLaHelle [!/PattiLaHelle].  Be sure to check out the other parody video’s on her channel that will literally live you laughing out loud, crying, gasping for air & maybe even an asthma attack!

New Video: Monica–Anything (To Find You) featuring Rick Ross…

monica_anything%20ft%20rickrossHip Hop\R&B Princess, Monica has finally released her official video for new single “Anything (To Find You)” featuring Rick Ross.  Reminiscent of something both old(90’s) and new, this video gives us a feel of that old school Monica that we’ve been missing from the “Miss Thang” era. 

Personally, I love this version sans Lil Kim.  Originally when the song leaked a few months ago it featured her rap vocals, but controversy soon ensued because the song samples the Notorious B.I.G.’s song “Who Shot Ya”.  

If you are a Hip Hip fan, you now that Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace, has a had a longtime feud with Lil Kim, and as executer of his estate, she used her power to put a motion to not allow the sample to be released for commercial use if Lil Kim stayed on the song.  Yep, Mrs. Wallace is gansta, and who can really blame her? But I digress!  Check out the video below and be sure to check out Monica’s new album “New Life” slated to be released November 8, 2011.  And for the latest Monica news, be sure to check out her official website,

Actor\Comedian Eddie Murphy will host the 84th Academy Awards(Oscars) ceremony on February 26, 2012…

em It’s been officially announced via the official website for the Academy Awards aka the Oscars (, the film industries most prestigious award ceremony, that actor\comedian Eddie Murphy will host its 84th annual ceremony on February 26, 2012.  Falling in line with a recent trend of theatrical musical numbers from its hosts over the last couple of years, I think Mr. Murphy will prove the perfect fit for the 2012 telecast given his wide range of musical, comedic and dramatic performances over the years. 

As a former Oscar nominee, Mr. Murphy is also only the 6th African-American(Black) host of the program but the overall 12th time there has been an African-American(Black) host, following in the footsteps of Sammy Davis Jr. (who hosted twice), Diana Ross, Richard Pryor (who hosted 3 times), Whoopi Goldberg (who has hosted a whooping 4 times) and Chris Rock.  One thing is for sure, the 2012 Oscars will be full of comedy, music, theatrics and over-the-top antics we have come to love from Eddie’s illustrious career!  Hmm, I may just to have to host an Oscars party next February, because I know we will be entertained!

Leah Remini & Holly Robinson Peete will not be returning(fired?) to CBS’ “The Talk” next season…

leahAfter much speculation and industry rumors it has finally been confirmed that two of my favorite celebrities Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete will not be returning to CBS’ “The Talk”.  Seems to me the the two ladies were let go, fired, given the axe, whatever way you wanna call it, because clearly neither one wanted to leave a show that helped awaken popular celebrity status for the both of them.  It really disgusts me because these two ladies, in my humble opinion, made the show!  Leah was wacky and up to date on pop culture, showcasing her sassy comedy made famous on “The King of Queens” and Holly was able to give a very classy, motherly but still very hip vibe to the show that appealed to an audience that grew up with her from the “21 Jump Street” era to a younger generation who grew up watching her on TV shows like “Hanging with Mr. Cooper”.

hollyWhile I do love Sara Gilbert, these two ladies were the only reason I really watched “The Talk” in the first place.  Who needs to get the axe is Mrs. Sharon Osbourne who seemed a bit off her rocker at times, and of course head host, Julie Chen.  But of course, you can throw your weight around when you’re married to the boss, sooo yeah!  This show could be so much better if they would remove the pretentious air of Chen-Bot, who seems more robotic than Rosie the housekeeper from “The Jetsons” and don’t get me started on that forced “I’m real” act that she tries to play to fit in with the other ladies.  It just seems at times that ”The Talk” is more scripted than these so-called reality shows of today, all under the careful eyes of the wife of the head of CBS.  Personally, I feel like there was much shade thrown around.  And this is not a bias opinion, I am not the only person who feels like Leah and Holly were the two most popular hosts on the show, and having the power to do so, I believe that Chen was behind their um, “exits”!

I will truly miss seeing Leah and Holly together on this show!  Even more so now after they released official statements on their websites about their departures, and how it was not their decision to leave!  And yet they spoke with no hatred, animosity or subliminal shade!  Now that’s what you call some classy dames!  I hope to see more of them in the future, even better, how about Leah & Holly talk and/or TV show?  They had such a great Lucy and Ethel chemistry, would love to see that played on even more!   CBS should be ashamed of their selves really!  How do you go from class act celebrities like Leah and Holly to Sheryl Underwood and Kris Jenner?  Really?!  Sheryl is not really all that funny anymore, I know her so called comedy routine better than she does and she is definitely gonna have to have a filter with that raunchy mouth of hers.  And Kris Jenner aka Mother Kardashian?  I can’t! …end of article!

Rapper T.I. Back in Federal Custody After Being Released from Prison in Less Than a Day!

tiIt’s taking all my restraint to hold back from going in right now, so I will just report the news!  So Day 1 after being released from a year long prison sentence, *pause*, rapper T.I. is already back in federal custody.  It seems he violated yet another federal guideline and did not report to the halfway house per the directions of his release in a low key manner. 

Now any idiot knows, that when you report to any facility or place where offenders are transitioning, you would be respectful and as already described in your parole release information to do so, but rather T.I. took upon himself to challenge the authorities yet again and report in a luxury tour bus with a multi car entourage in tow.  What does he not get?!  I am so done with Mr. Clifford Harris, because I just feel he ought to have greater respect for himself, wife and children after this whole ordeal!  As fan, I just don’t appreciate his poor example, especially because he has such an influential voice in the industry and to the youth culture!  To you sir, you got the frown face! No bueno!


Get Back Up…

Missy Elliott, Where Fore Art Thou?

missyMy late night insomnia usually equals the same remedy; taking a trip down YouTube memory lane!  After surfing through video after  video, I soon found myself seeking out one of my absolute favorite artists of all-time Missy Elliott’s greatest video hits; which are far too many to name. 

After looking at a dozen videos, I pondered to myself, Missy where are you boo?  Really though!  The music industry needs you!  Missy is that type of artist that truly paved her own way and didn’t accept any boundaries that people tried to label her with. 

From crazy hair to crazy outfits to those unforgettable videos, but most importantly, some of the best Hip Hop and R&B tracks in the last decade!  We surely are missing you in the game, Missy. so please hurry back as soon as you can!


Check out some of my favorite Missy Elliott videos below, courtesy of YouTube!
