All On The Cover: Diddy & The Fam Cover VIBE Magazine

Diddy and the fam are covering VIBE’s Aug/Sept JUICE Issue!


In the cover story titled “Table For One,” written by Editor-In-Chief, Jermaine Hall, Hip-Hop’s most affluent playboy shares his thoughts on regrettable interviews, Lil Kim vs. Nicki Minaj, regaining respect and more.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview…

Dr. Dre said that the last beat that floored him was “All About the Benjamins.” How does that make you feel?
It’s humbling. I was in the studio with Dre the other day. He started working on a record for me. Watching him as a producer is watching greatness. We had a lot of similar traits. It was like looking in the mirror. He would ask questions like, “How you feel about this?” People don’t really understand true producers want to know how you feel about things. We are some of the most observant people on the planet.

What happened during the Martin Bashir interview on Nightline?
There were times in the interview when I had to give him an ultimatum. The questions weren’t being handled the right way. In hindsight, when I saw him I shouldn’t had done the interview because I know the style of interview that he does . . . The whole thing about giving a Maybach to my son, that’s really like a racist question. You don’t ask White people what they buy their kids. And they buy ‘em Porsches and convertible Bentleys and it ain’t no question. It’s really a racist question and put things back in perspective with money and the way that people still look at you. And I’m not saying that consciously he’s a racist. But he probably don’t even realize that he would not ask Steve Jobs that. He would be like Steve Jobs has that money and that’s the gift his kid is supposed to get.

Are the comments from Lil’ Kim about Nicki disheartening?
When I heard her say what she said, it didn’t really affect me. I didn’t get mad at her or anything like that. I knew how she felt. I ain’t agree with it. But also I know the motivation. I know that people say, “Oh, he’s trying to get a new Lil’ Kim.” I guess people will see in time. Yeah, Nicki’s had flavored wigs on, but besides that it ain’t even the same approach to the writing.

Pick up the 15th JUICE ISSUE for more on his interview, on stands August 16th.

Update: Dr. Barbara Ross-Lee Denies Being Michael Jackson’s Baby Mama

Dr. Ross-Lee slammed Mocienne Jackson’s outrageous rumors today when she told TMZ reporters that it was impossible for her to have had a baby by Michael in 1975, because she had never met him at that point in her life.

Last night, Randy Jackson told TMZ reporters that the whole thing, “sounds kinda crazy.” That’s what we were thinking when this story 1st broke.

Today, Mocienne Jackson’s outrageous claim is seeming even further from the truth.

Dr. Barbara Ross-Lee tells TMZ that M.P. Jackson, “is not my daughter.” She also told sources that the woman is “delusional.” According to Dr. Ross-Lee she responded to one of Mocienne’s emails a few years ago to inform her that she was mistaken and to wish her well. There was even a time when Mocienne Jackson, “was really harassing me at my office,” says the Doctor. She was even forced to have her employer contact the police to get the harassment from Mocienne to stop. Dr. Ross-Lee told TMZ that the entire thing is nothing short of “bizarre.”

According to Dr. Ross-Lee’s biography, she graduated from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1973. She then worked a rotating internship at Martin Place Hospital in Detroit. She also signed on with an older doctor, and after three months she left his practice and went to work on the East Side for a physicians’ group. On July 1, 1974, she opened her own practice, which she ran until 1984. Dr. Ross-Lee also married her 2nd husband in 1976.

I’d say her life was pretty full! When would she have had the time to hide a lovechild that she conceived with Michael Jackson? Remember, Mocienne was born in 1975.

Breaking News: Woman Claims to be Michael Jackson’s Love Child

This story sounds a little crazy, but if what Mocienne Jackson says is true, that would make her the daughter of the King of Pop and Dr. Barbara Ross-Lee, the first African-American woman to administer a medical school in the United States. Somebody pay up, because this woman is long overdue for her trust fund baby lifestyle!

Here’s the deal, Mocienne Petit Jackson has filed a claim in Los Angeles County Superior Court asking a judge for permission to conduct a DNA test to prove she is Michael Jackson’s biological daughter. Mocienne Jackson claims that back in 1975, when Michael Jackson was a 17-year-old he secretly impregnated her mother Barbara. Barbara, is the sister of legendary, pop diva Diana Ross! MPJ says that when she was 9 years old, Michael’s mom, Katherine Jackson, devised a plan to “abduct” her and send her to Belgium to protect Michael’s “reputation.”  According to Mocienne, all 7 of her abductors were later murdered. She is currently living in the Netherlands and has now decided to come forward with her story, so she can “formally claim my part of my father’s inheritance.” Mocienne also wants custody of Michael Jackson’s children so she can give them a “more normal life.”  She also made it a point to state that she was diagnosed with Vitiligo, the same skin condition Michael Jackson suffered from. At this point, The Jackson and Ross families have not responded to the allegations.

So what do you think? Could this woman be the offspring of these two individuals?

Celebrity News: Christina Milian Says The-Dream is Lying

Two days after TMZ released court documents filed by Terius Nash, aka The-Dream, Christina Milian breaks her silence. The documents posted on TMZ‘s website on July 22, 2010 were divorce papers filed by The-Dream just nine days before Christina gave birth to Violet. In the documents, The-Dream claims that his marriage to Christina is “irretrievably broken,” and he declares, “There is no hope for reconciliation.”

The document also states:

However, in a legal response filed last week, Christina says they were not legally separated at the time and that she and her husband had “marital relations on numerous occasions,” after he filed his claim. She wants a judge to throw out the divorce papers filed by her hubby in February, because he lied about the status of their relationship. She admits that she signed a settlement agreement with The-Dream in which both parties waved any alimony or ownership right’s to the other person’s property. However, she claims the only reason she signed the document was because The-Dream brought them to her bedside when she was 9-months pregnant and in no condition to sign such important papers.

If the court does grant the divorce Christina feels it should not be based on The-Dream’s claim that the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” but rather, because the The-Dream was cheating on her.

We’ll find out the real deal as this story continues to unfold, but for now, check out Christina looking hot as ever as she goes for a jog!!!  July 23, 2010

Movie News: ‘Latin Kings’ A Street Gang Story

FILM: Latin Kings: A Street Gang Story

FILMMAKER: Jon Alpert

Reviewed by: Katy B. Jones

Filmmaker Jon Alpert takes a camera and follows King Tone, the “Inca” of the Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation in New York, a street gang. King Tone runs an organized, tightly knit group, holding regular congressional-like meetings where representatives from other Latin King districts gather to pay their respects and pledge their allegience. He preaches to his Kings and Queens that they should not shoot, and they should stay away from drugs. He takes his message of Puerto Rican pride to his heart, and delights in his family. He’s got a chance as a grassroots hero.

Unfortunately, the story ends unheroically. It’s easy to see why King Tone is a natural leader. He wants to be a person who does something really great with his life. He’s infectious, playful, heartfelt, organized, and an excellent fiery speaker. Unfortunately, he’s also unable to resist the temptations of drugs. When he’s finally locked behind bars, his world comes crashing to an end. Jon Alpert watches all of this unfold with an unflinching one-man band that doesn’t look away from the good, the brutal, or the bad. That the camerawork is somewhat uncreative is totally fine. This filmmaker earns his value by walking in a world few would dare. He earns the trust of his subjects, and obviously feels a great responsibility to paint the story fairly. There are no villains here.

Mr. Alpert also serves as our de facto narrator, peppering Tone with questions that the audience who doesn’t understand this world needs to know. He’s got balls, he’s got commitment, he’s got fairness, he’s got story, and there is definitely something at stake. For a low-budget film, it impressively dynamic. It’s rare that I watch a feature film all the way through and didn’t wish it was a short. This kept me in it. It was interesting, and I definitely walked in another world. It did lag a bit, and, as mentioned, the low-budget one-man band camera style can be a little wearing. All in all though, a good movie.

Three out of five cheers

P.S. Among the many morality tales of this film – please make a special note of one lesson Tone learned the hard way. Don’t go cheating on your woman just before you get locked away, even if it might seem like a good idea at the time. Prison is real lonely when she takes your kids, smashes your stuff, and moves to Connecticut. None of the other girls come visit you later, and neither does she. Or at least not without a whole lot of work on your part.
