2009 Soul Train Awards

November 5, 2009
2009 Soul Train Awards - Show

Beyonce stunned on them after taking three top prizes at the ceremony : Best Female R&B/ Soul artist,Song of the Year : Single Ladies, I Am… Sasha Fierce : Album of the Year.

Neither of them desserving the price, i was bewildered by the fact that she lost out on the “ Prestigious Record of the Year “ tittle that went to Jamie Foxx for T-pain autotune collaboration” Blame it”.Is that a joke ? I mean are they really serious ?Then they wonder why the music industry nowadays lacks soul on the top of being a corporate piece of trash.

Meanwhile Keri Hilson was a double winner walking away with the Best New Artist award and Best collaboration for Knock You Down, her hit with Kanye West and Ne-yo.

Soul star Maxwell, who was nominated in four categories, only managed to win one, for Best Male R&B/Soul Artist, beating competition from the likes of Robin Thicke and Raphael Saadiq.

Angie Stone, Erykah Badu and Fantasia collaborated with rap pioneer Melle Mel to honour Khan, singing her hits Through the Fire and Tell Me Something Good. 
They weren’t the only singers to bring the audience to their feet – Chico DeBarge, Boyz II Men, Johnny Gill and Estelle hit the stage with actress presenter Taraji P. Henson to belt out a medley of Motown hits to mark the label’s 50th anniversary.


The awards show, co-hosted by actor Terrence Howard, will air on U.S. TV on 29November (09).

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Levi Jonhson- set to show it all before the camera the middle of next month “in order to get the pictures out for the holidays- really has nothing to offer. His stories are really lame, and he’s milking what mild oddities he has for everything he can get out of it.Every time he opens his mouth about Sarah Palin and every time she responds, it moves her further away from the Oval Office.Two famewhores who will use anyone in their obsession for attention. They were made for each other.Ken Kupchik from Air America compiled a funny list of potential bomshells..

  • 10) Sarah was the one who gave Kanye West that bottle of Hennessey before the VMA’s.
  • 9) Sarah Palin threatened to beat up Joe Lieberman if he doesn’t filibuster health care reform.
  • 8) She donated the $150,000 worth of clothes from the RNC to Michelle Obama’s sick wardrobe.
  • 7) She voted for Barack Obama during the 2008 Presidential elections after watching this.
  • 6) Even she thinks Glenn Beck is an idiot.
  • 5) Levi got the idea to pose for Playgirl after finding Todd Palin’s secret magazine stash.
  • 4) She really could not see Russia from her house.
  • 3) She de-friended John McCain on Facebook after the campaign.
  • 2) Palin is the one who leaked the Republican health care plan to Alan Grayson.
  • 1) Sarah Palin actually wrote her book Going Rogue.

Bronson Pinchot on Tom Cruise’s Homophobia and Denzel one of the most unpleasant human beings!

October 22, 2009

Hilarious interview with Bronson Pinchot, who claims Tom Cruise made ‘constant’ homophobic comments as a 20-year-old.Let’s join him as he recalls the Risky Business set:

Risky Business (1983)””Barry”

BP: We didn’t know it was going to be a big hit. We thought Tom [Cruise] was the biggest bore on the face of the Earth. He had spent some formative time with Sean Penn”we were all very young at the time, Tom was 20, I was 23. Tom had picked up this knack of calling everyone by their character names, because that would probably make your performance better, and I don’t agree with that. I think that acting is acting, and the rest of the time, you should be you, but he called us all by our character names. He was tense and made constant, constant unrelated homophobic comments, like, “You want some ice cream, in case there are no gay people there?” I mean, his lingo was larded with the most There was no basis for it. It was like, “It’s a nice day, I’m glad there are no gay people standing here.” Very, very strange.

Years and years later when people started to torment him with that, I used to think “God, that’s really fitting, because he tormented a lot of people as a 20-year-old.” He made such a big deal about it. Same thing with Eddie Murphy”I remember somebody calling and saying, “You’ll never guess who was just caught with a transvestite!” [Laughs.] And I remember thinking that seemed fitting, because there are certain people in showbiz who make it an agenda, every third sentence has to have something knocking that life choice, and you think, “What are you doing?” Like, these women came up to me in a restaurant”I was wearing a bright red shirt, and I was with some friends, and they said, “Would you like to join our club? We wear red.” What kind of choice is that? If you spent many years in the theater, and then you show up in movies, and people have on their to-do list for the day that they’re going to make a comment every third sentence, it strikes you as very strange. I just thought it was very funny that years later, that became his bugaboo. Which is a nice 1930s term I thought you’d enjoy.

AVC: Do you think he was just insecure? Or that he was young?

BP: I really don’t know. It is what it is; there’s nothing I can add to it. If someone’s 20 years old and every third line out of their mouth is anti-something specific, then draw your own conclusion. I thought it was very weird. Similarly, there’s a certain type of middle-aged woman that will tell you within 20 seconds of meeting you that she can’t find anyone to take her to bed. And that really strikes me as strange, too, like, “Why are you telling me that?” I don’t like any kind of conversational agenda; it makes me uncomfortable. I just think it’s weird. Unless you’re with your very best friends and you’re being silly. Then you can do whatever you want.

Anthony Mackie Talks ‘Hurt Locker,’ the Oscars and Upcoming Projects

October 21, 2009

4956_93841778497_93609688497_1854056_7703321_n

Dr. Cole Abaius from Filmschoolrejects.com sat down with  the star of The Hurt Locker and All he has to say : he loved talking with Anthony Mackie.

“If there’s one thing I hate about reading, writing, and conducting interviews, it’s when the subject gives canned responses that seem like they’ve been sped through a publicist-run car wash to make sure nothing controversial, close-to-controversial, or interesting gets said. I’m even a fan of boring answers just as long as they’re original and boring. It’s the scripted bullshit that really seems like a waste of time. In fact, I’ve even written features when someone was so fake that it become culturally fascinating.”
