Happy 75th Jack Purcell

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of Jack Purcell joining the Converse family. In 1935, Purcell designed a canvas and rubber badminton sneaker for Converse. These Converse look very similar to the Chuck Taylor All-Stars, but are distinguished by the smile across the toe. Converse is celebrating by introducing updated designs from the archives and new textures. The menswear-inspired leather brogue collection features a fun purple interior, wingtip details, and fun sparkling metallic finishes! Try wearing one of these updated designs on the weekend or even on the court.

Shots Fired: Fiddy Is Back On Diddy
Buck, buck, buck, buck! Shots fired…again! Ever since 50 Cent took over his Twitter account from his record label, he has been causing straight mayhem! This time, he tweeted about Diddy, saying, “Puffys a fun boy a happy man, a fruit loop a lucky charm a skittle chase the rainbow lol.” Diddy, meanwhile, took the highroad and didn’t respond!

Young Buck Is Going After Fiddy
Diddy might not respond anymore to 50’s shots, but Young Buck is taking the bait. His new single, “Hood Documentary,” is a Fiddy diss! He’s also got a new mixtape coming out (which I am sure will have lots of Fiddy disses), called “The Rehab.”

Slim Thug And Rick Ross Hash It Out On Twitter
Another beef is heating up on Twitter! Rick Ross and Slim Thug got into it recently. Ross started things out when he put Slim’s name in the song “King Boss.” Ross rapped, "She dated Slim Thug/ Now she f**k with me/ She finally made it to the biggest boss, luckily." Well Slim took to Twitter to voice his opinion of the Boss, saying, “Just threw Rick Ross CD out of the roof of the coupe…haters get no play in my ride.” Ross responded with, “Real n*ggas pick up phones…a boss would kno better.”

Usher Speaks On His Marriage
It must be something in the water because everyone seems to be speaking their mind! Usher spoke to People Magazine about his marriage to Tameka Foster. He said, “I love her as the mother of my children, we just couldn’t be married…We’re two different people.”

What Beef? Waka Flocka & Gucci Mane
Aside from Waka’s mama saying there’s no beef between him and Gucci Mane, what better proof than them doing some good in the hood together?! They were both spotted in Queens, NY over the weekend at a community event, giving out school supplies and shooting some hoops.

TI Is On Top
Speaking of doing good in the hood, looks like “Takers” did just that! The movie did better than I initially reported yesterday. After Sunday’s receipts, it actually came in 1st place with $20.5 million, a slim lead over “The Last Exorcism’s,” $20.4 million, but a lead nonetheless!

Morning Quickie
Brandy and Vanessa Williams' ex-hubby, Rick Fox, will both be joining the cast for this season’s “Dancing With The Stars.”

Jeans For Everybody

On September 2 Levi will officially launch a new denim line for women to consider their back side. So the next time you try on some jeans consider your butt too. With Levi's new Curve ID pairs, you can choose a style that flatters your body with "slight curve" (if you have a flatter, more boyish behind), "demi curve" (if you have more curves behind) or "bold curve" ( if you have wider hips and a smaller waist) and with a fourth fit coming later this year. There will be a fit for everybody. These new fits also come in three styles skinny, straight, and bootcut with prices ranging from $58-$98. You can find these jeans and a array of washes at http://www.levi.com . Let me know what you think of them.

The New Blue Bag: Tiffany's New Handbags

This week Tiffany & Co. is launching it's first formal leather handbag collection. Tiffany & Co. have teamed up with handbag designers Richard Lambertson and John Truex to bring us their chic styles. The line includes 44 luxe pieces for the iconic brand including evening bags, weekend totes, wallets and gloves. They went for simple, timeless and clean lines. These bags are great for the women that wants a well made bag but do not want to be flashy. The cost starts at $395 and goes up to $17,500. Will you be getting a huge blue box to put one of these in?

Lenny Kravitz "Thinking Of You" Tribute To Mother

Sexy Black rocker Lenny Kravitz, one of my favorite REAL musicians, sings a tribute of "Thinking of You" for his mother, Roxie Roker, on her birthday, August 28, 1929, (she passed away December 2, 1995). Her beautiful portrait is behind him. I always enjoy watching her as Hellen Willis on "The Jeffersons." This is what music is really about!

New Music: Marsha Ambrosius - I Hope She Cheats On You

Shots Fired: Fiddy Calls Diddy A "Fun Boy"

Okkkkkk! So this FOOL Fiddy Cent is back at it! While Diddy has been using his DiddyBlog.com to promote positivity, 50 Cent has been wasting his time messing folks! He's back to his shennannigans, this time calling Diddy a "fun boy."

Another Celebrity Wants To Hit Kat Stacks
Kat Stacks in amazing! This chick really knows how to make headlines! This weekend, the Internet was going crazy over Carmelo Anthony, allegedly, putting a hit on Rat Stacks via Twitter. He supposedly offered $50000 to anyone who would “slap the sh*t” out of “pigeon faced” Kat. Later though, his rep said his twitter account had been hacked. When will these celebs learn to just ignore her?

Drake & Nick Didn’t Get Married After All
Speaking of relationships and publicity stunts, Drake & Nicki Minaj announced that they got married…then announced that it was all a big joke! Nicki had tweeted, “Yes, it’s true. Drake and I tied the knot.” Even though it was a joke, I personally think they should do it!

Did Scary Spice Scare Off Her Husband?
Well just as quickly as Drake and Nicki Minaj’s marriage was over, so is Mel B. aka Scary Spice’s! Her husband, Stephan Belafonte, apparently told a newspaper in the U.K., “Dude it’s over.” And said they had been fighting a lot.

Is Fanny Preggers
Speaking of ending marriages, there’s a rumor floating around that Fantasia is preggers with Antwuan Cook’s baby!! A family friend said, “Right now she can’t show how happy she is in public.”

Serena Williams’ New Nose
While Fantasia might be gaining, Serena Williams is losing! Her nose that is! Some new pictures surfaced of the tennis star with what appears to be a new nose. And I hate to say it, but she looks cute!

Morning Quickies

Mos Def is being sued for more than $57,000 for missing a performance in Toronto.

Jay-Z has teamed up with the Yankees for a line of Jay-Z branded hats, shirts, and hoodies.

And another Michael Jackson concert could hit the big screen soon! It’s a 64 minutes worth of footage from a 1981 concert.

Box Office
1. The Last Exorcism ~ $21.3 million
2. Takers ~ $21 million
3. The Expendables $9.5 million ($82 million total)

Does Jamie Foxx Have A New Boo?

Sexy ass Jamie Foxx was spotted out, looking quite comfy with this gorgeous woman! She looks like a model...and she looks Black...which is a change of pace for Jamie! We think he needs to keep her on deck and see where this goes!

Happy Birthday To The King Of Pop or Should We Say The King Of Fashion

Today is Michael Jackson's birthday and as we honor and celebrate his life, let's also look at the influence he has had on the fashion world! It is nearly impossible to find an artist that who hasn't been influenced by his music, but the current stars seem to be equally inspired by his fashion sense. From Usher to Beyonce, Rihanna to Lady Gaga and many others in between, have all borrowed pieces of his style.

Random: Are The Lost Boyz Making A Comeback?

So....I guess The Lost Boyz are trying to make a comeback! They started following me on Twitter, so I took a look their Twitter page. I found this video...

But I ponder...can you really call it a comeback? The Lost Boyz is more than just Mr. Cheeks! Where are DJ Spigg Nice and Pretty Lou...(RIP Freaky Tah)? If you came up on hip hop in the mid to late 90s then you're intrigued...if not, you probably don't give a f#$%!

New Music: Kanye West f. Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, Rick Ross & Bon Iver - Monster

Man, Kanye West is doing something most garbage rap artists wouldn't ever think of doing, releasing G.O.O.D. music for free! Yeezy posted "Monster" to his official blog, www.kanyeuniversecity.com, as a part of his G.O.O.D. Music Fridays, where he promises he'll post a new song every Friday until Christmas!

WTF Alert: What Is 50 Cent Plotting?

(Click images for larger version)

50 Cent has something crazy planned tomorrow (8/28) at noon! He posted these crazy pictures! What do you think! Give us your 2 pennies below!

The Red Sea of Studded Soles

The celebrities' favorite shoe designer, Christian Louboutin, has out done himself with his winter 2010 collection. There are lots of spikes and studs all around...it's a fresh take on rugged, no nonsense shoes. He has even added a studded sneaker to the line, which I love, but not for everyday wear. So let me know if you will be the stud around town this season! If you need to know where to get these shoes or a look for less email me at SwankStylist@gmail.com!

Falls Feminine Touch: Not Just For The Bedroom Anymore

Another fall trend alert is layered lace. With it's highly textured look, lace on lace results in coolly elaborate patterns. Try to stick to a relatively limited palette for a quiet impact. Keep your outfit free of too much adornment. Let the lace's rich ladylike mood be the center of attention. Pearls are a nice classic touch if you must have something on with it.

BREAKING NEWS: Drake & Nicki Minaj Married?

Nicki Minaj & Drake took to Twitter to profess their love for each other and supposedly announce that they're married! We highly DOUBT that they got legally married, sounds more like a good publicity stunt. These two have had some money well spent on media training, so we doubt that, realistically, they would be THIS willing to confirm it! But we aren't mad at 'em for pimping the system...why not? It worked for Jay-Z & Beyonce...And there really is no HIP HOP power couple! While we don't believe the hype...it might not be a bad idea! What do you think? Leave comments below!

Here are the Tweets:

"U scurred? @drakkardnoir u ready to make the announcement or wha?" - @NickiMinaj

"@nickiminaj Baby I am never scared. PROUD is more the word I would use." - @DrakkardNoir

"Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot. > RT @drakkardnoir @nickiminaj Baby I am never scared. PROUD is more the word I would use." - @NickiMinaj

"Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She's finally mine. :)" - @DrakkardNoir

New Music: Lupe Fiasco - Go To Sleep

WHOA: Black Rob Apologizes To Diddy!

Sneaker Alert: Can You Say 62 - 20?

Whoooo! Team Jordan and Nike have decided to bring out not only the flint grey Jays, but also the white and red and all black Jays for the 2010 Holiday Season! Both of these shoes were the historic shoes Jordan wore during 97 - 98 season, when the Bulls went 62 - 20. As a sneaker head and basketball lover, I know I'm going to do my best to get all three! So keep an look out for these shoes this holiday season. Legion Of Fly Approved!

Prototype: Will Ochocinco Have An Official Shoe?

Chad Ochocinco posted pictures of these PE Reebok Zig Slash that were custom made for him in orange. With him being such a popular brand franchise right now, we can't help but wonder how long it will be before he has his own official shoe in a store near you!? Would you buy these?

Rapper Nicki Minaj: I'll show you more (From CNN)

Three years ago, Nicki Minaj was getting fired from jobs more often than she was paying her rent on time.

The Trinidad-born, New York City-raised artist has written lyrics about having an alcoholic father who once tried to burn down the house with her mom inside.

Certainly, Onika "Nicki Minaj" Maraj seems to be an unlikely candidate to become one of the most intriguing hip-hop artists of today.

The Dirty Laundry for August 27, 2010

The Dirty Laundry

Suge Knight And Kanye West Agree…To Disagree
Suge Knight is not necessarily the person that you want to disagree with, but Kanye West doesn’t care! Suge is suing Yes for more than $1 million dollars because Kanye hosted a party in Miami where Suge got shot in the leg. They held a mediation session yesterday, but couldn’t agree, so now they’ll most likely go to trial!

Wyclef Makes A Diss Record
Speaking of disagreements, Wyclef is on a rampage, now that the Electoral Committee in Haiti wouldn’t approve his bid for president. He just released a diss record called “Prison for the CEP.” How mature!

Mariah Finally Speaks On Baby Bump
Mrs. Mariah Carey has finally spoken about her growing stomach! She took to her website to address the rumors that she’s preggers. Based on her non answer, I would say she is TOTALLY knocked up! She wrote, “I appreciate everyone’s well wishes. But I am very superstitious. When the time is right, everyone will know.” News flash Mariah…we already know!

Fabolous “Pumping” Up New Beef
Fabolous also has some beef brewing…or should I say NEW beef brewing. He’s been going in on adult film star, Brian Pumper, on Twitter. He started a trending topic, #BrianPumperJewels, making fun of the chains Brian wears in his movies. Brian responded with the trending topic #FabScaredLike. Ok, maybe it’s just me, but who cares who wins this battle?!?

Nicki Minaj Explains Lauryn Hill Comparison
Nicki Minaj finally explained the statement Irv Gotti made, comparing her to Lauryn Hill. Everyone thought he was reaching on that comparison, but Nicki says, “Irv has been privy to hear things that I've done that the world hasn't heard. Based on the music I have out now, that sounds like an absurd comment, but when Pink Friday comes out, you will completely understand why Irv made that comparison.” Hmmm, yeah, I guess we’ll take your word on it Nicki! (Pink Friday is out November 23)

Call Him Professor Knowles
This fall, Beyonce’s pappy, Mathew Knowles, will be teaching a class about the entertainment industry at the Texas Southern University School of Communication in Houston.
