In this week’s Pulse Report, we’re going to take a moment to look at some of the most suspect photos of Mister Cee, especially since he’s “straight” as an arrow, contemplate whether or not Charles Ramsey would go gold or platinum if he sold music, shake our heads at Ja Rule’s quiet return home from prison and oh SOHH much more!
[Editor’s Note: The views expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect those of SOHH]
1. Catch Me If You Can
I have one question for the women out there.
Do you find Mister Cee sexually appealing?
I keep having a hard time trying to figure out what “women” think of this situation. For any and all fellas out there, let’s be honest, Mister Cee could have a leak sex tape with Kim Kardashian, Stacey Dash filming and we’d still give him that Frank Ocean “bisexual” tag at best. Blame it on hip-hop being so masculine, but like Treach said back in the day, we just see the headlines, no one has time for the lengthy write-ups or the stories that are in an article.
Mister Cee’s been busted too many times and it’s going to take a lot before people can really say they think he’s straight. But in his defense, who cares?
Butters does! LOL.
I couldn’t pass on this gem. Bossip came up with the most suspect-looking shots of Mister Cee. Let’s “Cee” if this plays any part in your opinion:
SMH. That was rough. I’m not going to spend time on this, I’d rather keep it moving, but let me just say that no matter whether Mister Cee likes women, men or aliens, it shouldn’t matter but when crimes are going down, there’s no other way but to address it. SMH.
2. Ramsey Tunes
If you have no idea who Charles Ramsey is this week, then you obviously were too busy on your X-Box 360 and not paying attention. I think the sad part is the fact that we only know he did a “heroic” thing (helping captive women finally be freed) and makes for a lot of laughs. The memes and videos sealed his fate this week and while I’ve seen some worthy contenders, it comes down to SOHH and this “Dead Giveaway” video that have to receive props! LOL. Tell me Charles couldn’t get a deal off these:
^ LOL!!! DEAD!
3. Moment of the Week: N.O.R.E. Announces Ja Rule’s Freedom
LOL! Forget the Associated Press or even TMZ, it turns out N.O.R.E. can really live up to that CNN title after all. LOL. With no one anticipating Ja Rule to come “home” until late July, N.O. broke the news that his pal (think God’s Favorite days) was free from jail. You gotta admit, Ja’s worthy of national attention, maybe not so much anymore on the rap blogs, and for N.O.R.E. to have the scoop on this was pretty amazing. Give props, N.O. was on his game!
“Welcome home @Ruleyork,” N.O.R.E. tweeted, referring to Ja Rule’s Twitter account.
“Just spoke to @Ruleyork everybody tell him welcome home!!!” (N.O.R.E.’s Twitter)
SMH. Still can’t believe we all found out that Ja Rule was a free doggy courtesy of a rapper’s Twitter page. SMH. And why not someone like Irv Gotti or even someone in Ja’s Mpire music group? SMH. Regardless, that was pretty impressive, Noreaga. Now if he can only do the same for C-Murder, Lil Boosie and Young Buck.
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Kat Dennings
LOL, SHUT UP! I don’t care if she’s probably the whitest girl ever featured in Pulse Report, let alone Mrs. Butterworth. The fact thought that Drake probably gave her the Drizzy Stroke when they hooked up is validity enough to feature her as a Mrs. Butterworth candidate. She’s got a kiddy face, but Hollywood enough for you to take her serious. She’s got knockers that are begging to be seen in a “Celebrities Exposed” website page, but they’re perky enough to be respected. Her name is Kat, and for the longest we’ve waited for another Kat that didn’t have the last name “Stacks.” There’s too many things to love about Kat, so suck it up and applaud this beauty.
SMH. Now these are just wrong! LOL.
5. Rappers Say The Darndest Things
There’s too many rappers and not enough sense. LOL. I’ll skip all the quirky lead-in stuff and just jump right into it. I was never a huge Big Tymers fan, but you can’t say there’s going to be another Big Tymers album WITHOUT Mannie Fresh. Even worse, saying Lil Wayne and Drake are going to replace him? SMH. No way. Then there’s Chris Brown. So he might not be a rapper, but the logic he has in breaking up with Rihanna is just dumb. Age? Really, Chris? LOL. Then there’s Lil Wayne predicting the Miami Heat will go all the way? Did he forget about Bulldog Butters’ New York Knicks!? Then there’s Tyler, the Creator with his defending of a plain ol’ racist Mountain Dew commercial. SMH. Lastly, Eve saying she had to prove she wasn’t a groupie back in the day? LOL!!! Y’all already know what time it is!
But everyone wants to know: Will Mannie Fresh be involved? “No. Nah. Not at all,” Birdman confirmed when he appeared on a special episode of “RapFix Live” in Miami on Wednesday (May 8). Nothing for the project has been recorded yet. Actually, it just started as an idea, but according to Wayne, it is definitely on the way and all parties involved seem pretty excited, including Drake, who wasn’t present for the interview. “You can’t even tell him an idea,” Wayne said of Drizzy. “I just told him that we were thinking about it, and he just hit me and said, ‘We’re lookin’ for some music today.'”
Those who wondered if something was up with Chris Brown and Rihanna after she was unable to join him on his May 5 birthday might have been right! In a new interview with the Australian radio station 2DayFM, Chris admitted that he was split from RiRi and flying solo. “I’mma do it solo,” Chris told the Aussie DJ. The R&B singer seems to intimate that his and Rihanna’s schedules unfortunately got in the way of their relationship, and that her inability to make it to his birthday celebrations may have been a factor too: “I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her own thing, she on the road. It’s always gonna be love. I’m a grown man, just gotta move forward.” Though Chris said he is “always gonna love” Rihanna, he talked about how he’s more focused on himself right now. “People have differences and people have different wants and needs,” he says. “At the end of the day she’s a young girl. I can’t be focused on wife-ing somebody that young… and I’m young too.”
With his beloved L.A. Lakers out of contention, the South Beach resident now believes that LeBron James and the Miami Heat are the clear-cut favorite to take the basketball crown. Clearly his past spat with the team hasn’t affected how he analyzes the game. “C’mon man, you know you can’t beat that machine out here in Miami man. Nobody can beat that machine. I have yet to see someone beat that machine,” he said. “I think the [San Antonio] Spurs will give them a run for their money but, that machine, the Miami Heat.”
“I guess people are claiming that it’s racist, which… you know, that wasn’t even portrayed in that commercial, there’s no type of hate being portrayed in that work of art at all — which I’m confused by. But this older black dude, Dr. Boyce Watkins, I guess he found it racist because I was portraying stereotypes, which is ridiculous because, one, all of those dudes [in the line-up] are my friends. Two, they’re all basically in their own clothes. It was originally supposed to be just two dudes, but Garrett from Trash Talk came with his friend and other people had showed up, so I just put all of them in that line-up, if you really wanna know the truth. Three, no [commenters] saw that commercial and said, this is racist. Everyone either said, “Wow, this is ridiculous, it’s a goat talking,” or they said, “Wow, this is the dumbest, why would they even make this?” So for [Watkins] to nitpick and notice that, clearly shows his state of mind is on some other sh- that I can’t comprehend, for him to actually sit there and for him to notice that it’s all blacks [in the lineup]. That wasn’t my intention.”
“If anything, I probably overcompensated as a woman. With dudes, you have to snatch the respect. You earn it, gain it, snatch it. I also was adopted compared to everyone else. They’re from Harlem and Yonkers and here’s this girl from Philly, so I had to prove that I could write like them or better than them. I had to prove that I wasn’t a groupie. I did whatever I could to gain that respect and let them know I didn’t need them to carry me.”
***WEEKEND TIME! I’m not even going to lie to y’all, those Boston Celtics had me shook last Friday, and with the Knicks bringing back Amar’e, there’s no question they can make a big push to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. And those Yankees are doing good and so are the Rangers. Plenty of good things to look forward to. Hope y’all caught that Iron Man 3 flick last week, one of the best Marvel flicks I’ve ever seen. I’ll catch y’all on Tuesday! PS…don’t hate on Kat, y’all know you would smash too! –BB***
