“I Just Told Y’all Not To Ask Me That Sh*t”: August Alsina Curses At 106 & Park Host, Rocsi Diaz Comes To Her Defense
Chante: “Is there any chance that two talented brothers will bury the hatchet?” Alsina: “So you just go against the grain, and go against everything that I just…I just told y’all not to ask me that s**t when I got up in here.”Things got tense after that.
Chante: “Fair enough. I think the girls wanna know. And you’ve spoken to– Alsina: “Testimony coming out, baby. Album in stores.” Chante: “You’ve spoken on radio stations and blogs and you’re on the show and fans want to know. So I’m just asking you what fans want to know. That’s it. If you don’t want to answer that’s fine.”After that, Chante was quite peeved by being cursed at on live television, as anyone would be. So by the time he introduced his new video a minute or two later, she walked off the stage. So who was in the wrong in this situation? The feedback has been mixed. But former 106 & Park co-host Rocsi Diaz, who now works for Entertainment Tonight, has spoken out, defending Chante and saying Alsina’s behavior was unnecessary on Twitter. Forgive the grammar issues, Twitter does only provide you with 140 characters…Alsina: “I won’t.” Chante: “All right, we move on.”
“Let me go on record and say Keshia Chante did her job as a journalist. Any other Radio or TV personality or blogger would have asked to.” “2 even applaud how she was responded 2 is what’s wrong with our generation 2day. Also that language on @106andpark its not even necessary” “She Be applauded for asking the hard question not being shut down”And when someone tried to say that she used to get cursed out by celebrities on the show too, Rosci shut that down, saying:
“SWEET HEART NEVER ON MY WATCH AND @TerrenceJ wouldn’t let it happen”What’s your excuse Bow Wow? Just kidding…but not really. I think Alsina has every right not to answer questions he’s not comfortable with (more celebrities need to do it actually), but to curse at the young woman? Not a good look in my opinion, especially as a new artist, and especially when you consider the fact that Alsina was the one who brought his issues with Trey Songz to light in the media. Once you bring it up, people are going to want to talk about it. In response, just say, “no comment,” and better yet, have your publicist send a memo in advance so things like this don’t happen. I agree that this new generation of young people can be too comfortable talking to people any kind of way these days, and it’s quite ridiculous, especially when you’re talking crazy on live television. But what do you think? Check out the awkward clip below and share your thoughts.
Last night, if you were on Twitter pretty late, you might have noticed that Trey Songz was trending. And if you clicked on the trending topic, you would have quickly learned that the internets were claiming, with questionable evidence, that Trey Songz was indeed gay. And there was a tweet from his “verified account” to prove it.
Here it is:
Then there was this older, suspect picture of Trey supposedly kissing a man.
Though I knew this was probably a fake, it looked pretty convincing. But I highly doubt Trey Songz would use Twitter as a way to come out if he really were gay.
Anyway, the topic trended for hours with a slew of different reactions. Some said they suspected long ago that Trey was homosexual. Others offered support claiming that whether he was gay or not they didn’t care and would still bump his music. And then there were those who shed fake emoji tears at the devastation.
Finally, this morning, during working hours, Trey addressed the slander:
The things you people craft up with hatred in your hearts. The things people believe without question, or validity, all baffles me.

Photoshop and a retweet is all people need to believe, any and everything. I feel bad for the impressionable, no minds of their own.

When you’re an R&B singer in the limelight, often times the gay rumors will follow. There are those who swear, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Trey Songz is gay. But if he says he’s not, then we’ll have to accept that. It’s not hard to photoshop some text on a Twitter profile. And that picture, upon further reflection, is not even Trey in the first place. Personally, I don’t know why people are so pressed either way.
Valentine’s Day is here and that means boxes of chocolate, teddy bears, dates and lovemaking. But it takes more than a special day for lovers to set that mood. And that’s when your favorite love songs and baby-making music come into play. And MadameNoire has the list of smooth R&B crooners, and their best slow jams and ballads ladies (and gents too) love to listen to while getting it on. Some of these male vocalists have the looks and some honestly just have the voices, but either way, women love them.
While some big Hollywood names dominated the box office this year, the films that were based on real life people or inspired by true stories were the ones that really outshined the rest.
13. Monsters University
Pixar struck gold with its 2001 Monsters Inc movie, grossing over half a billion dollars worldwide. Twelve years later the prequel Monsters University did even better than the original. The animated movie tells the story of two pals, Mike and Sulle, during their time at college and how they went from being friends to enemies. The film made over $80 million opening weekend and eventually raked in over $700 million worldwide.

Well, Trey Songz is back again. After staying pretty lowkey this year in terms of new music (besides “Sensational” which he released over the summer), Trey delivered on his promise to release something new on Christmas Day.
While the “Angels,” his terms of endearment for his fans (the full name is Trey’s Angels) were probably hoping for a full EP or even a new album release date, Trey instead dropped a new song called “Nana.”
The song, produced by DJ Mustard, is a typical Trey club knocking track. In the song, he’s talking to a woman who he seemingly met at a party and of course, the way she’s dancing is turning him on, making him spend his money on drinks and at the end of the night, she’s ready to go home with him. See, typical Tremaine:
“Baby I’m the one you like, yeah/I’ma give you what you like, yeah/Oh yeah, I’ma give it to you right there, best time of your life, yeah/Baby when you ready tell the waitress get the check/Girl Ii know you ready, I ain’t even gotta check/You been through the worst, let me show you who the best/You know I’ma get you right throw them boys to the left”
We all know that most of Trey’s songs that start in the club end up with him taking the young lady home for the evening. It’ll be interesting to see how fans react to this song because for a while now, many have been looking for him to pull a new card and switch up his music style.
But what do you think: Pass or Play? (By the way, whatever you think you’re seeing in the above picture is exactly what you’re seeing.)
The-Dream: “We would be missing one new, big a** voice. It’s like, where’s the big voice? Nobody really has that anymore. Like, that thing. Nobody has that Johnny Gill s**t. That just go to church, just come on…there’s no go to church voice now if you really think about it. I’m looking for ‘em. It’s hard to find ‘em.”It’s an interesting thought, right? While I can appreciate the voices of some of my favorite male singers of today, including Miguel, Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake, and more, the reality is, they don’t have the voices that ring out and leave those goosebumps like I get when I listen to Aaron Hall’s “I Miss You,” or Jodeci’s “My Heart Belongs To You,” or something from folks like Case, Luther, Johnny Gill, D’Angelo, and Michael Jackson. Do you agree that those powerhouse voices are missing?Interviewer: “That’s true. R. Kelly had that definitely.” The-Dream: “R. Kelly still wasn’t purely like, ‘go to church’ though. He was more relying on tone. Which he has a great tone. K-Ci and JoJo, was that part of that group. Those big powerhouse things. They don’t really exist anymore. Maybe everybody stopped going to church and stopped getting whippings. Whippings usually create a great voice.” Interviewer: “That pain, huh? That pain and fear!” The-Dream: “That switch or getting beat with a rose stem. [laughs]” Interviewer: “Jennifer Hudson I guess for the female side kind of has that.” The-Dream: “Yeah. Bey. A lot of voices over there.” Interviewer: “But not male voices, huh?” The-Dream: “Yeah.” Interviewer: “Is that how you got your start? From the church?” The-Dream: “I’m quite sure some type of way, man I’m from the South. Everybody go to church and sing there first. You can’t sing nowhere if you don’t sing in church. It wasn’t like there’s a choir, you’re in the choir if you just come to church. It’s like, ‘Come one buddy! Let’s go.’ It was what it was.”
And he’s not the only one showing love. Trey Songz even showed up in D.C. today to support Brown at his arraignment. Of course, Brown has been held in jail since he was arrested because he had to see a magistrate first. But his arraignment was delayed for a while because of an over-packed courtroom, and information on it (if it’s finally started and the end result) still hasn’t been made public yet. An overflow room for fans wanting to listen in has been made in the court basement, and some of Brown’s family had to be put in a separate room because of the courtroom presence. Even outside, as Trey Songz entered, it seemed more like the red carpet of an awards show as fans who stood outside for hours with signs saying “Leave Chris Brown Alone” screamed “OH MY GOD, IT’S TREY SONGZ!!!” It’s all a bit too much for a courtroom appearance for a serious charge that could come with serious time (four years). We will keep you posted on what comes of his arraignment, but I know he must be appreciating the support right now…because he definitely could use it. UPDATE…Been homies since day 1. Im talking bout got money together so much like bros if you aint have it on you my ni**a it was nothing i got you! Same on both ends! Keep yo head up stay focused you got a gift that your fans appreciate. Dont give these people no more reason to talk. Deliver them hits and focus on what YOU gotta do! Love my G #Freemyhomie! Hood & @wackstar yall scream at me let me know the 411! Hit me on the hip! Yall stay up too!”
According to the Washington Post, district prosecutors lowered Brown’s felony assault charge to a misdemeanor. As court papers stated, Brown says that he didn’t strike the man who says he broke his nose at all. There was initially confusion as to who threw the first punch, because Brown’s security guard was also arrested and charged (and his charges were lowered too), so that could be why Brown caught a break. Where are security cameras when you need them? Anyway, according to TMZ, Brown was released without bail and was told to stay 100 yards away from the victim.
Despite recent reports that Baggage Claim was a bit of a flop at the weekend box office, director David E. Talbert took to Twitter to celebrate the film and praise it for being the number one comedy in America.
Thanks EVERYBODY for making Baggage Claim the #1 Comedy in America! Let’s keep it going and rock the box office this week!

It’s great that David has chosen not to allow naysayers and negative reviews to rob him of his latest accomplishment. In case you missed it, earlier this week we told you that the Paula Patton film debuted at number four at the weekend box office, grossing only $9.3 million, though Shadow and Act estimates that it will earn at least $20 million in the coming weeks. $20 million isn’t exactly a bad thing, since the film’s budget was reportedly only $8.5 million. Hopefully the romantic comedy does better in the coming weeks.
Did you check out Baggage Claim yet? Do you plan to?
No, really. It’s not what you think it should be: a stale Jumping The Broom-type of comedy (no offense Paula). Instead, it’s a surprisingly hilarious film where Patton shines through (without being too bubbly in an annoying way) and literally embraces physical comedy. Folks are jumping in garbage cans, running through airports, getting hit by cabs and more–all in the quest to help Patton’s character of Montana Moore get a man. What would you do for love?
Mad Eye CandyThis might be an understatement. Damn near every guy in the movie has been in somebody’s wet dreams over the years (probably without clothes). Taye Diggs, Boris Kodjoe, Terrence J, Trey Songz, Derek Luke, Djimon Honsou, and more are just a few of the gorgeous guys I ogled on-screem. From every shade of the chocolate rainbow your eyes will be blessed with, and a few of the brothas will show you what their working with in bubble bath and bedroom scenes. *Drools*
The Supporting Characters Are EverythingIf there wasn’t already enough reasons to love Jill Scott, this movie might give you another. She’s absolutely hilarious as the bus+y and flirty Gail, who gives terrible advice on love while trying to keep her own dating life afloat. And then there’s Adam Brody of The OC fame who plays Sam. He’s saucy and will literally have you damn near in tears with his comical observations about the men in Montana’s life. And the interactions between Scott and Brody are just as funny.
See A New Side Of Taye DiggsWhen I see Taye Diggs, I don’t see funny. Honestly, I see the Broadway play Rent, and there’s nothing funny about that. However, in this film, Diggs plays a pretentious politician (a Republican at that) named Langston who’s all about being in charge and keeping his lady in the background. With his toy dog Juicy and his speech-giving tactics everywhere he goes, Diggs manages to keep you in stitches as the pompous political player the whole time.
Support Black FolksRomantic comedies are making a comeback. And while they’re not like some of our favorites from yesteryear, ones like Baggage Claim are refreshing and entertaining, and deserve your eyes and dollars. It’s been promoted well and the end result is actually pretty well done. Go ahead and support some good looking black folks.
Hell No We Won’t Go: Artists Boycotting Florida Increases As JT, Rihanna And More Reportedly Take Stand
According to D.C. publication The Hill, the list of of artists joining Stevie Wonder in boycotting Florida over the state’s “Stand Your Ground” laws is growing, and doing so fast. After George Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder of Travyon Martin, at a concert soon after, Wonder announced his boycott of that state and other states with “Stand Your Ground” until these laws are struck down:
“I decided today that until the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again. As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world. The truth is that — for those of you who’ve lost in the battle for justice, wherever that fits in any part of the world — we can’t bring them back. What we can do is we can let our voices be heard. And we can vote in our various countries throughout the world for change and equality for everybody. That’s what I know we can do.”
