Jay talks about the last time he wrote lyrics down.

Posted by Media Outrage on November 26, 2007


Jay talked about the last time he actually wrote lyrics down on paper and how he has inspired others to use his process of not using a pen…

“I’ve inspired a generation of bad writers,” Jay jokingly said.

Jay says the last time he wrote lyrics down on paper was for his ’96 debut “Reasonable Doubt” the song ‘Can I Live’.

“What happened was, I was doing that song with someone else, and they heard the first verse and they was like, ‘Man, you take that song. Finish it, ’cause it sounds like you got a lot more to say,’ …you know, that type of thing. So I just wanted to get it down quick, I didn’t want to keep going over it. It was like [the album] mastering time, so I just sat down in the booth and wrote that [verse].”

He wanted to write lyrics down for the Black Album….

“It just felt better [the way I do it now],” Jay said. “In my mind, I wanted to sit down and write and do this thing a certain way. But your natural process is your process. It’s difficult to go back to what you were doing when you were 15 or 16, but my process is different [now]. It sounds great on paper, ‘I’m gonna sit down and write this entire album like I did before.’ But once you get back in the studio and you been doing this process for years and years, it just felt natural to do it the way I been doing it. No paper, no pen, just listen to the music and do it.

Chris Brown a victim of domestic violence as a child.

Chris Brown

“I don’t want to mention the person’s name – it wasn’t my real father – but somebody hurt my mom and me, I had to deal with that from seven all the way to 13. It affected me, especially (my behaviour) towards women – I treat them differently. I don’t want to put a woman through the same thing that person put my mom through. I was scared and timid when I was little. I used to pee in my bed… I think it was me being nervous, and scared to get up (out of bed) and see what was going on. My mom used to try and hide it from me and my sister, but we knew. Anybody that’s going through it, just try to deal with it, talk it out.”

Breaking News:Redskins safety Sean Taylor shot in Florida, in critical condition!!!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 26, 2007


Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor was in critical condition after he was shot at his Florida home Monday, police said.

Officers were dispatched to Taylor’s home at about 1:45 a.m. He was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital, police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said. He didn’t know what part of his body was injured.

Taylor’s family asked that no information about his condition be released, hospital spokeswoman Lorraine Nelson said.

Taylor has a home in the Miami suburb of Palmetto Bay that he bought two years ago. The 24-year-old player is in his fourth season with the Redskins after playing at the University of Miami, where he was an All-American in 2003. He leads the team with five interceptions but has missed the last two games because of a knee injury.


Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor was shot in the leg at his home Monday and was bleeding heavily, and police said he was in critical condition. They are investigating a possible robbery.

Officers were sent to Taylor’s home at about 1:45 a.m. after his girlfriend called 911 and said he was shot in his lower body, Lt. Nancy Perez said. He was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital, she said, but did not disclose how many times he was shot.

Richard Sharpstein, an attorney who represented Taylor in a criminal case, said the player’s father told him his son had been shot in the leg and there was much bleeding because the femoral artery was severed.

“It could have been a possible burglary; it could have been a possible robbery,” Perez said. “It has not been confirmed as yet.”

Somebody’s after Oprah???

Posted by Media Outrage on November 26, 2007


Via Page Six:

Last year, Keifer Bonvillain was hit with a federal extortion charge after he allegedly tried to sell Winfrey audiotapes for $1.5 million of a high-ranking Harpo employee bad-mouthing her. But the charge didn’t hold up in an Illinois court.

Now Bonvillain, 37, who touts himself as a Louisiana-born “civil-rights activist,” has launched a Web site in a bid to get a publisher for his exposé, titled “Ruthless.”

His breathless pitch reads: “An office manager at Harpo broke his silence and his confidentiality agreement when he spoke freely about Oprah Winfrey’s private life and business affairs. Keifer Bonvillain underestimated one of the world’s most powerful women when he, armed with clandestinely recorded tapes, decided to write a ‘tell-all’ book unmasking the famed celebrity. Within days of Harpo learning about the book, two men were attempting to break into Keifer’s home – presumably to get the tapes. Oprah was desperate to keep the truth from being revealed . . . The fallout was Keifer’s highly publicized arrest.”

Bonvillain vows to disclose that Harpo may have been involved in “blatant discrimination . . . This CEO not only knows about these practices . . . she condones them . . . Hours of taped conversations . . . reveal what they don’t want the public to know about [Oprah’s] private life, and a business that prides itself on its diversity.”

Eva LongoriaTyler Christopher

We just learned that Eva Longoria was married toTyler Christopher who plays Nicolas Cassadine on General Hospital for 2 years about 8 years ago. It’s interesting because as much as we have heard about Eva in the media we have never heard that she was married before. She was an actress on Beverly Hills 90210, and The Young and the Restless. She married Tony Parker this summer.
