Well Hov did a phone interview this morning on Shade45 radio which was pretty amusing. Click Here to check out the interview. Here are a few excerpts from Jay’s interview in VIBE Magazine:

On his marriage to Beyonce….

“I just think it’s really a part of your life that you gotta keep to yourself,”

“You have to have something sacred to you and the people around you,” the 38-year-old adds. “I shared so much of my life… I should have something to hold on to.”

On Barack Obama…

“What [Obama] represents is, we as a people are part of the American Dream,” he says. “We were left out of the dream at a certain point. Now the dream is, you can be anything – and it’s not cliché.”

Boris Kodjoe speaks…

Posted by Media Outrage on August 7, 2008

Actor/Ladies heartthrob Boris Kodjoe spoke to Essence about life in film, Nicole, groupies and more.

Via Essence:

ESSENCE.COM: Congrats on your most recent role in “All About Us,” a romantic drama about a filmmaking couple who are in search of their next big project after reaching a dead end in Hollywood. What was most appealing to you about the role?
BORIS KODJOE:
I was attracted to the script. I rarely get offered those kinds of roles because I’m often boxed up in a label. I met with the director, Christine Swanson, and discussed her vision for the film and that was it for me. Instantly, I trusted her and really admired her and her husband’s drive for getting this film done. The film is inspired by their own struggles in Hollywood as a couple. They found their own distribution and just made it happen. They live in North Carolina and are waiting for their fourth child to be born and they did it on their own terms with no regrets. So many people think you have to be in Los Angeles to be involved in the film industry and that’s not the case.

ESSENCE.COM: As part of a Hollywood couple, have you and Nicole ever felt like you’ve hit a brick wall? How does this film mirror your family life? Read the rest of this entry »

Morgan Freeman Released From Hospital

Posted by Media Outrage on August 7, 2008

Actor Morgan Freeman has been released from the hospital after being admitted a few days ago due to a serious car accident in which his vehicle flipped over multiple times.

Via People:

Morgan Freeman has been released from a Tennessee hospital – and says he is glad to be on the upswing.

“I left the hospital today just after 12 noon, Memphis time,” Freeman said in a statement released by his rep to PEOPLE. “I’m doing very well. I feel real good. I just really, I thank the staff at ‘Elvis Presley [Hospital]’ and many, many thanks to my many well-wishers. It’s great to know people care about you.”

Kathy Stringer at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis confirmed on Thursday that the Oscar winner has been released.

Freeman, 71, was driving in Mississippi’s Tallahatchie County late Sunday when the accident occurred and his car flipped over. Extracted from the wreck by emergency crews using the jaws of life, the Dark Knight actor was said to be ” in good spirits” Monday after being airlifted to the medical facility.

Also on Thursday, Freeman’s lawyer confirmed that the actor and his wife since 1984, Myrna Colley-Lee, were divorcing.

Freeman will have to wear a neck brace for six to eight months, according to attorney Bill Luckett, who added: “The doctors have said it will be six months to a year before he plays golf again. He hates that.”

Mediaoutrage– This is some great news that he’s ok. Prayer works.

R.Kelly f*#ked my sh#t up royally

Posted by Media Outrage on August 7, 2008

Singer Joe shared some interesting information with Eurweb about the sabotaging of his career which he says was spearheaded by none other than the Pied Piper himself Rrrrrruuuuh.

Via Eurweb:

*He couldn’t quite put his finger on it, but R&B artist Joe felt something wasn’t quite right with his situation at Jive Records. So after 11 years on the label and six albums, the singer decided earlier this year to bounce and give the independent route a try.

It wasn’t until after he left the label that Joe says he found out what was behind his perceived stalled progress. He says his own label mate, R. Kelly, put pressure on Jive execs and radio stations to fall back on promoting his records when the singles appeared to be getting too much attention.

“R. Kelly was very instrumental in making a lot of decisions when it came to my records being played on the radio,” Joe told EUR’s Lee Bailey Tuesday. “He would make a call to the radio station or to the label and say, ‘Hey, this Joe record is too hot right now. Yall need to pull that back.’ And they would oblige.” Read the rest of this entry »
