What happens when you put two tackheads together for an interview? Someone is bound to say something that makes us sane folk cringe a little bit. Well, this is what happened when Tyrese decided to pay Chelsea Handler a visit in promotion of his new film Fast & Furious 6.
Chelsea, who I’m convinced fetishizes black man, is known for her line of inappropriate questioning. And Tyrese is known, these days, for talking out the side of his neck. So as you might guess, these two produced quite the soundbite when she started asking him about his new single “Sex Aint Never Felt Better,” with Tank and Ginuwine.
Chelsea asked Tyrese, what constitutes good sex for him and Tyrese, never one to shy away from speaking on women’s issues, had this to say:
“Well see they [women] got this thing about minute men. And so, when you’re a minute man, women get mad. But it’s actually a compliment because if you’re in the bed for like 45 minutes and nothing is happening, you should get your life together.”
Ok Black Ty. It might be a “compliment” but as a woman, speaking on women’s issues, it’s also selfish as hell. Most women are going to need more time than that. And while I’m sure that “one minute” thing might be flattering every once in a while, eventually, she’s going to be looking at you crazy.
But maybe that’s just me.
Ladies when a man is one his one minute steez, do you take it as a compliment? Let us know. Also if you want to see Tyrese explain it in his own words…

Pass Or Play? TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine And Tank) Release Video For Raunchy Track, “Sex Never Felt Better”
With a title like “Sex Never Felt Better,” you would think the video was going to be a Not Safe For Work type of situation, but in the video for the TGT single, Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank keep it PG visually, and rated R with the lyrics. Directed by Matt Alonzo, the men can be seen in the video hitting the stage to perform the track for their “fans” (aka, extras) in all black leather as the crowd goes wild. Later in the clip, you also catch a backstage glimpse at the men preparing for the show, and after the fact, dressed to the nines in suits and having drinks with some lucky ladies.
I would have loved to see a little more skin from these men (sans Tyrese because his hot factor has fallen thanks to his mouth), but Tank indulged us with a quick ab shot. The supergroup dropped the track and video to promote their upcoming album, 3 Kings, coming out for the fans on July 23. I don’t know about you, but we were over here jamming to the song, which despite a few questionable lyrics (“I wanna swim in it all night long”) is a must. Check out the video for yourself and groove to the song and let us know if it’s a pass or play for you. Enjoy!

Is it just us or are celebrities these days making more headlines with Twitter shade than talent? These celebrities have made drama and pot stirring part of their personal brand.
When I first started on my weight loss journey after having my daughter, I remember updating one of my sisters on my progress. After I hit the 15 pound loss mark she was excited for me. Though she was happy, I couldn’t really embrace it because I felt that even though I had made a dent in the large amount of padding that was on my body, it wouldn’t be good enough because to the outside world I was still fat. Plan and simple. Until my body went back to its normal size, I felt worried that every pound or inch loss would be in vain until reaching my coveted size before being seen as appropriate to the public.
Recently, we’ve discussed the increase of “fat shaming” in the world, from insensitive quotes, airlines contemplating to over charge overweight individuals, and the discrepancy of pay wages based on weight. There is even an article on The Huffington Post where a woman addresses the discrimination that she felt by her boss over her size and how she was forced to quit. While discussing this with one of my best friends she tried to encourage me with: ”Well, you might not be at the size that you’re comfortable yet, but at least you still have a pretty face.”
Maybe it’s because with the increase of our social media, that requires people to use a photograph of themselves that is causing people to become more image conscious. But all of this made me wonder, which is the lesser of the two, being over weight, or being unattractive?
So let’s discuss this weight thing. I remember when we posted the article on Tyrese‘s criticism on overweight individuals, and reading the comment section and some of you all were going IN on dude. But, it made me remember the comments on the airplane wage suggestion of having obese flyers to “pay what you weigh,” and there were many people who agreed with it (making me feel that people might have agreed more with Tyrese than what they wanted to put on). It seems that the common thread of how people saw obese and overweight people were that the discrimination was warranted due to the fact that for most people it’s a controllable condition with a solution.
But does that mean that unattractiveness is something that can be forgiven? Now me, personally, I don’t believe that anyone is ugly, because beauty is subjective. Even if you don’t find someone attractive, there are others that do. We see this all the time. Things that have been criticized on black women (big lips, hips, and butt) have been celebrated on more European figures. Also, if I have to gauge someone else’s beauty then I have to gauge my own, and honestly, I’m too sensitive to try to figure out if I’m pretty or not. But, there are certain facial features that almost universally convey trust and appeal to others (which is why in cartoon movies, all the villains tend to look alike). Things like how far set your eyes are, how symmetrical your face is, the shape of your face, and for men, the appearance of facial hair has also played a part in wage differences.
But with each factor, weight, and your perceived attractiveness seems to play a part in how people treat you. Is it right? No. People should be treated by their character, and usually that ends up happening… after you get to know someone. However, sometimes you have to endure people judging you and your abilities on superficial reasons. People can assume horrible things about you, whether you’re overweight, thin, attractive, or not regarded as so. But, let’s have an open discussion, readers. What do you think that society, or you yourself favor? Do you feel you treat one better than the other?
Reunited and it feels so good!
One of our favorite on-screen couples from the ’90s have found themselves back in each other’s arms. Well, almost.
Clueless stars Stacey Dash and Donald Faison — better known as dysfunctional couple Dionne and Murray — will be starring side-by-side again on an episode of the TV Land comedy, “The Exes.”
According to reports, Dash will play Dana, a recommitted virgin who is currently dating Faison’s character, Phil.
The episode is slated to air in July, but until then, lets take a look at 10 other couples from television and the big screen that we’d love to see work together again.

Sometimes celebrities make it hard to get on their team. These stars’ recent comments have left their fans confused between the crazy advice, rants and shade that have come out on Twitter, in interviews and on the streets. Here’s the best of the best.
Man! It’s no secret that there’s a severe lack of real R&B out these days. But R&B veterans, crooners Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese are fastening their capes to swoop in and save the day. The trio, known as TGT, have collaborated on a new song called “Sex Ain’t Never Felt Better.” And it’s poppin’, in a seductive, rock your hips kind of way. I’ve always felt I shared a connection with Ginuwine since childhood, (We share a birthday.) so it was good to hear his voice again. Really, no one else sounds like him. And as much trash as Tyrese talks on Twitter, his vocals are still on point. Then for the final verse, Tank comes in with a serious falsetto. It took my ears a minute to adjust but it was pleasant once I settled in. All in all this is a great look for these guys and if this song is indicative of what’s to come, I’ll be more than happy to listen and support. The group, which formed in 2007, signed a deal with Atlantic Records this past September. They expect to release an album later this year.
Check out the track below and let us know what you think. Is this a hit?
