In this week’s Pulse Report, we’re going to tip our caps to Nicki Minaj finally taking the Hollywood scene seriously, watch in amazement as Jay-Z shows Blue Ivy Carter how to get down in Paris, drool over Vida Guerra still lookin’ stunning at 40 and oh SOHH much more!
[Editor’s Note: The views expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect those of SOHH]
1. Azz-tremely Interesting
I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but I want to see if Nicki Minaj can really act. Yeah, we’ve seen her big girl ways on the Young Money team and how she uses that whiny-sounding voice on “American Idol,” but when the cameras start rolling and there’s a multi-million dollar budget on the line, can she pull it off? I had to snatch up this goodie and spread it out.
When she’s not busy with “American Idol” and music, Nicki Minaj is prepping her first official debut on the movie screen. According to various reports, Minaj is set to appear in Nick Cassavetes’s upcoming comedy, The Other Woman. Minaj will join a cast that includes Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton, Leslie Mann, Jaime Lannister, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. The story focuses on Diaz, who finds out her husband (Coster-Waldau) is cheating on her with various women. Along with the husband’s current wife (Mann), Diaz plots for revenge. Nicki, who’s in the final discussion stages, would play the role of Diaz’s nosey, blunt assistant at law firm. Filming is scheduled to being next month in New York City. (Miss Info TV)
It’s going to take a lot for me to really believe Nicki is capable of really acting. We’ve seen the works of 5-0 Cent, Beanie Sigel and Snoop Dogg, and nothing very impressive at all. I’ll give her those voice-over props but as far as trying to sell real tickets at the box office? Show and prove!
2. Marcy To Hollywood To Paris
Is Blue Ivy Carter spoiled? LOL. I dare anyone to say no. Seriously though, is there anything that Jay-Z and Beyoncé Carter-Knowles won’t give their little boo? It looks like Jigga wanted to give the world a little bit of “Babies In Paris” and took his daughter overseas for some crepes. It’s pretty sad to think that at barely a year old, Blue Ivy Carter has more stamps in her passport booklet than most of us combined! LOL. Big props to Hova though, he knows how to be a fun dad.
Blue Ivy ALERT! On Thursday, while enjoying some short downtime during her tour, Beyonce stepped out in Paris with her man Jay-Z and her daughter, Blue Ivy.
Photographers spotted the hip-hop mogul with Blue Ivy in arm, as the family sat down for lunch at a restaurant called Septime. The sighting of Blue Ivy is the latest and a very rare glimpse of the adorable 15-month-old. The protective parents have been notoriously private when it comes to their baby. (RumorFix)
Can y’all believe we have yet to see Blue Ivy Carter really out in public? Sure, we’ve seen these paparazzi-type photos, but in regard to Jay and Bey really giving their daughter some spotlight? You would think by having the name trademarked, they’re going to have her starring in commercials soon! LOL.
3. Moment of the Week: Vida Guerra Turns Back Up
I’m not going to lie, I thought Vida Guerra was down for the count! She’s a smokin’ hot gal and when I found out that she’s 40, technically 39, but you all know what I mean. A lot of times you hear about these fallen beauties and they end up on TMZ looking pretty messed up. That wasn’t the case with Vida. This would normally be something for Mrs. Butterworth, but she’s earned a spot for the biggest moment of the week:
While tanning her ridiculous badonkadonk, bootyful model Vida Guerra nearly devoured her entire thong bikini bottom in Miami on Wednesday. Bun appetit. (TMZ)
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Vida Guerra
Nope, I’m not even going to sugarcoat this, click BACK on your computer/phone/mobile device right now! Refer to “Moment of the Week” for your Mrs. Butterworth fix!
5. Rappers Say The Darnest Things
Once again, it’s your favorite rappers saying the worst things at the best possible moments, y’all. It starts off with Rocko. Doggy, you can’t take Rick Ross off “U.O.E.N.O” and then say he’s going to be on the official remix. Now you look extremely crazy. Maybe not as crazy as Pharrell Williams who is on a campaign to make us believe Miley Cyrus is really about that rap life. LOL! C’mon! Then there’s N.O.R.E who has the nerve to judge and critque the Cruel Summer album. I can agree it’s not a classic, but what credentials do you have to speak on another man’s craft? LOL! We all remember how much of a difference those “What up Slime” skits did for your LP. LOL. I thought she was cute at first, now I can’t stand Iggy Azalea. The fact she is hyped over joining Def Jam? SMH. Finally, Nature, of all doggies, claiming he was the first rapper to put sports and music together? LOL!?!?!!?
“What I did do, for radio, all the verses I got, I got several verses from all different artists, so I said what I was going to do — every week I was going to put out a different verse with a different artist on it and just put it out clean, just for radio. If you look, on the ‘net, all the verses I put out are clean. … We spoke but we didn’t speak about that. We spoke about something else. He’s on the official remix. I’m going to go ahead and tell y’all, this is a big enough platform, I’m going to go ahead and let it out. On the official remix, he’s got another verse. … Now y’all got something to really look forward to.”
“She can tell you everything about Waka Flocka. She can tell you when Gucci Mane came out. She means it ’cause she grew up in that. She grew up listening to that with all her friends. She’s showing you the signs that she’s a different girl.”
“I’m really a student of the game and Kanye West had did an interview and he said, ‘The G.O.O.D. Music compilation’s a dope album. We got no skits, we got no intros, we got no outros.’ And if you look at my Gucci bag right now, the only album I have in my bag is the G.O.O.D. Music compilation. I love that album. I absolutely love it. This is the first time I ever said that. But the one thing that I saw that was missing was that. Like I want to be entertained in between songs.”
“Hey world. I signed to island def jam. Iam now mercury UK/ island def jam USA awesome!!!!,” she tweeted April 23rd.
“No. That doesn’t mean I’m no in hustle gang. Save it. Still in it. Still on the hustle gang album. Friendship doesn’t require contracts.”
“If this confuses you, you are welcome to read the press release on billboard later today. ?”
The most underrated is me. I’m SOHH Underrated because I feel like I was trendsetting and I was one of the first guys to really incorporate the sports world and the music world.
Everybody is so caught up in the lights, glamour and the glitter and sometimes that’s not what it is. You know what I mean? For me, you know, I was fortunate enough to come into the game and make a little name for myself in the streets.
At the end of the day, people were still not paying attention. Maybe it wasn’t dressed up right, maybe it was something else. I don’t really know. It’s not really until these days that I’m able to communicate with the fans through Twitter and see how much of an impact I’ve made.
***WEEKEND! I don’t know about y’all, but it’s New York Knicks all day, Pain & Gain all night and plenty of X-Box 360 gaming! LOL. Sports is picking up, especially when you see Jay-Z trying to sign every young potential professional rookie to Roc Nation Sports. Sit back and prepare for this nice Knicks win tonight, y’all! I’ll catch y’all on Tuesday! –BB***
