Chuck Berry Collapse On Stage
January 3, 2011
Rock legend Chuck Berry is in good health after collapsing on stage during a performance in Chicago due to exhaustion, a spokesman said Monday.
Berry, 84, slumped over an accompanist’s keyboard about an hour into the performance Saturday night and was helped off the stage in front of a packed house.
He returned about 15 minutes later and tried to resume the show, but was taken off stage almost immediately to be checked by paramedics.
Berry came back out to thank the fans who’d waited for him and left the stage using a bit of his signature ‘duck walk.’
A few minutes later he walked out the stage door on his own into an awaiting limousine. He did not go to the hospital and was home in St. Louis on Sunday.
With his string of 1950s jukebox gems such as “Johnnie B. Goode,” “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “Roll Over Beethoven” and “School Days,” Berry profoundly influenced some of the biggest pop groups of the 1960s including the Beatles, The Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.
Berry is resting comfortably at home.

Tyrese Goes off on Wife via Twitter
By: Tawanda Fredricks
Tyrese and his daughter’s mother clearly don’t get along, the singer/actor sat outside her house last night and took to Twitter to complain about what a bitter bit** she is and that he’s going to see his daughter’s face when she opens her presents on Christmas day by any means necessary. It is so unfortunate when a father wants to see his child and the mother behaves in a manner such as this. We will be praying for you Tyrese!
Take a look at some of his tweets:
Hulk Hogan Undergoes Back Surgery
By: Stacy Briggs
Hulk Hogan‘s wife Ruth shouldn’t have been offended if he couldn’t carry her over the threshold.
The muscle bound wrestler is recovering after basically having his spine rebuilt in a surgery that lasted roughly 10 hours, EOTM confirms.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, is recovering from surgery and is said to be doing well.
Aside from lugging around all that family baggage recently, the Suburban Commando star needed so much work on his back to repair wear and tear from injuries sustained over years in the ring.
He also had surgery in June for an old wrestling injury and was hospitalized in September after experiencing unrelated, yet “terrible,” back spasms.
Celebrity Lawyer Gloria Allred makes a persuasive impression
By: Tawanda Fredricks – Los Angeles, California – Celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred logs a lot of time on television, and she is going to gain more as the attorney for pro boxer Christy Martin.
Allred answered all the questions for Martin at a news conference today after the boxer’s husband, James Martin, was denied bond. He is accused of attempting to kill his wife.
Allred made a forceful impression in the news conference, which Central Florida News 13 aired. Allred took her time answering questions outside the Orange County Courthouse. I don’t think she has ever been more appealing.
Could it be that news program formats limit and reduce the ubiquitous Allred? She often comes off as overbearing and humorless, but not so today. She was down to earth and charming.
“My role will be as the victim’s attorney,” Allred said. “I’m part of the case. I’ve received notification of all relevant hearings. I have a right to be present at her deposition.”
Allred said she had the right of confidentiality with the boxer, which the prosecution doesn’t. The news conference underscored that you’d want Allred in your corner.
“She can feel free to speak to me,” Allred said. “I hope that will be some comfort to her.”
Allred explained that Christy Martin had contacted her and that her law firm feels strongly about allegations of violence against women, especially in marriages. “She is a champion,” Allred said of Martin.
Allred vowed that Martin, with a bullet in her back, will start training once her doctors give the OK.
WFTV-Channel’s Kathi Belich warned viewers that prosecutors described the attack in graphic detail. Belich relayed this information: “They said Martin pulled a nine-inch knife from behind his back and stabbed her four times, once in the leg when she tried to kick him away. Then they said he pistol-whipped her, bashed her head against their bedroom furniture, then shot her.”
WESH-Channel 2’s Greg Fox highlighted Christy Martin’s intention to fight the court battle, then return to boxing and go for her 50th victory.
WESH reported that James Martin has pleaded not guilty and that his attorney said there’s no proof that he was the aggressor. But Fox noted that the judge, in denying bond, cited James Martin’s hiding from the law for a week and his statements he that stalked his wife.
The trial will be in May. The boxer has filed for divorce, and she says that the gym the couple owns will reopen Jan. 3. But Allred was doing most of the talking today. Smart move, I’d say.

The Dirty South Rapper that put Palm Beach on the Map
By: Rahn Anthoni
As I chat with Sean Chavis (Kidd Scubb The Ground Money) I found out Atlanta has been good to him…even though it’s not what it used to be when it comes to the music outlets like Freaknik and Jack the Rapper. Kidd grew up in Palm Beach County and always had big dreams. When he graduated from high school he left West Palm Beach to pursue his dreams by moving to Atlanta to attend the Art Institute of Atlanta for audio engineering. It’s like if you wanted to be a successful actor you must move to LA. When I moved to ATL it wasn’t the mecca at the time, he said..but God put him in the right place at the right time. Kidds Mom inspired him with the strength she instilled in him. He saw his mom start from nothing to the Commissioner of Palm Beach. A Power Move, is what he calls it…Do you remember that old saying “like father like son”…..Well Kidd’s pop wasn’t there so to him it was “like mother like son”.
Kidd’s motivations were to put his city on the map and that’s exactly what he did. Shout out to Palm Beach County, looking for the Kidd that’s where you will find me is what he stated in his song “Scrubb the Ground”. His band teacher at North Shore High School, Mr. Brown was a big inspiration to him as well. Mr. brown taught him how to read music and how to play different instruments. Mr. Brown tapped into the musical side of Kidd and that triggered a passion for music. That alone motivated Kidd to want to reach new plateaus.
West Palm was not known as a music haven. Kidd was the first to change that, he states “I scream Palm Beach County in damn near every song I produce, if you lived in Palm Beach and went anywhere in the Southeast region they was banging Splack Pack Palm Beach County Style from the bottom”!
I ask Kidd Money if booty music will come back and he replied, “Booty music never left that’s why they still play my music to this day, you just don’t have lots of artist that create booty music and those that do are not in the urban market. As long as you have white boys buying 50 thousand dollar car systems, bass music will never die. As long as we have dance clubs, bass music will never die and as long as we got chicks with booty, booty music will never die”.
Kidd advised me that everybody has a calling and he gives thanks to God because music is his. I advise all the readers to follow your dreams as Kidd Money did and you will reach your goals in life. Kidd Money was one of the artist that help bring the South to the forefront. If it wasn’t for acts like Splack Pack,Mc Shy D, Raheem the Dream, Kilo, Smurf, Dj Toomps, Ghetto Mafia beating down the doors it wouldn’t be a mecca in the south. Groups like Outcast and JD were under major labels so their doors swung open. When you’re independent you work harder banging on the door until it comes down. Today, everyone’s biting off the “A” .
Here’s some great advice from Kidd Money to you regarding your dreams in the business. “My only advice for an artist is know what you are getting into, this music industry is not for the weak, it will break you if you’re not aware so prepare yourself. Before you pick up a mic read Donald Passman . All you need to know about the music business is in there, thank me later”!
I had a chance to ask Kidd about The Bishop Long case and his view on groupies such as Katt Stack. “The controversy on the Eddie Long case, I don’t think it’s a good look for Bishop Eddie Long. I’m not here to judge, I do believe what you do in the dark comes to light, never put your trust in man, .always in God! There’s thousands of Katt Stacks in the industry. Katt Stacks just trying to come up off any artist that don’t know no better. You got these young cats coming up, got a little bread in their pockets, but don’t respect the game. Money attract all types of women, if you don’t know your worth you’ll end up with a Katt Stacks. I’ve never had encounters with those type of chicks I respect their hustle, but I play the game, the game don’t play me!
Listen to Kidd Money’s music on Itunes, amazom.com, Rhapsody.com, cdbaby or any retail store near you. You can find the Kidd projects with SouthEast Records, his own label venture that caters to Southern Hip Hop, R&B, Club/Techno, and Gospel. Be on the lookout for a new single and video “Splack Pack” just completed with London base Dj “Dj Deekline” called “Whip it”, movie projects, books and more.
I can say that Kidd Money has been an inspiration to all of us in wonderful world that we call home. I can say that he’s a part of history in the Hip- Hop, Rap, Booty Music in the World today. It’s been a blessing and make sure you check out that New Video. If you want to book Kidd Money please contact 561-309-0207 .

Ne-Yo —a Dadda to be…
By: Jimmy Baker
Singer/Songwriter Ne-Yo may be one of the leading artists in the industry, but now he is about to become a father at age 30.
He recently traveled home to Atlanta to attend an ultrasound session with his girlfriend, reports Ebony. Apparently there is no word on what sex the baby is, but he stated, “I am 30 and I do have my first child on the way, and I’m very, very, very excited about that. It’s a New Year’s baby and I’m just in a really good place right now.”
Congratulations to Ne-Yo and his girlfriend!

Live, reuniting Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and the rest of the cast amid throngs of screaming fans.
The Twilight die hard fans who’d been camping out for days lined the red carpet — OK, it was a black carpet, matching the campers’ wristbands — along with media types from all over the world. Wish EOTM was there, maybe NEXT premiere.
The fans went wild and so did we!

The Lakers Dominated the Celtics & take the Lead
in this best of seven series
By: Carla B.
Game 1: Lakers 102, Celtics 89
June 3, 2010
The Lakers had something to prove in game one of the NBA Finals. They needed to show the Celtics just how much they learned over the past two seasons. Lakers came up with the hustle plays tonight and made a strong statement for the team! Game 1 was most definitely a blow out. I thought it was an excellent game overall, the team had lots of energy. It was obvious Kobe was stressed to the max with the pressure to take game 1, I don’t think I saw him smile all night. And what about Lamar Odom? His second crack at a title with the Lakers is here, but so is a huge question of his impending free agency. This is added stress no player needs going into the finals. Other added pressures for the entire Celtics team is going into game two and trying to avoid a perilous 0-2. We will see if home court advantage will work to their benefit in game 2.
The Staples Center was packed well before the opening tip for the Lakers’ third straight appearance in the NBA finals, and several thousand fans actually deigned to put on the giveaway gold T-shirts handed out by the team. The Lakers have made it to 31 of the 64 NBA finals, including 25 since moving to Los Angeles in 1963.
Will the law of averages rule in Boston’s favor throughout the finals? I’m sure we can pinpoint valid arguments for picking either team in this series. This isn’t quite the offense vs. defense matchup we seen two years ago, but the Lakers are still the stronger defensive team in my opinion. And in the end, defense wins championships. What’s your take?
Dolphin uses iPad as way to communicate with Humans
By EOTM Staff
Last week, a young bottlenose dolphin named Merlin became the first of his species to join the growing number of enthusiasts using the Apple iPad. Dolphin research scientist, Jack Kassewitz of SpeakDolphin.com, introduced the iPad to the dolphin in early steps towards building a language interface.
“The use of the iPad is part of our continuing search to find a suitable touch screen technology which the dolphins can activate with the tip of their rostrums or beaks. After extensive searching and product review, it looks like our choice is between the Panasonic Toughbook and the Apple iPad,” Kassewitz explained. “We think that once the dolphins get the hang of the touch screen, we can let them choose from a wide assortment of symbols to represent objects, actions and even emotions.”
Kassewitz explained the requirements of the technology. “Waterproofing, processor speed, touch-sensitivity, anti-glare screens, and dolphin-friendly programs are essential. As this database of dolphin symbols grows — we’ll need fast technology to help us respond appropriately and quickly to the dolphins.”
The research was being conducted at Dolphin Discovery’s dolphin swim facility in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico, along the picturesque coast now referred to as the Riviera Maya. The dolphin, Merlin, was born at the facility and is only two years old. “Merlin is quite curious, like most dolphins, and he showed complete willingness to examine the iPad,” said Kassewitz.
For now, the researchers are getting Merlin used to the touch screen by showing him real objects, such as a ball, cube or plastic duck, then asking the dolphin to touch photos of those same objects on the screen. “This is an easy task for a dolphin, but it is a necessary building block towards our goal of a complete language interface between humans and dolphins,” Kassewitz said.
I guess dolphins are too good for the blackberry.
Then & Now - Hollywood Girl Gone Bad
Before and After of Lindsay Lohan
By: EOTM Staff
When we first saw Lindsay she was a cute little kid, everyone loved her. Whether she was playing a pair of red heads in a remake of a Disney classic, the daughter of the boss, a preacher’s kid, a Mouseketeer, or an outspoken high school student, we found something compelling about Lindsay that made us fall in love.
Now she’s all grown up and we can’t help but watch and love her even more, except for totally different reasons now.
Disney fans will remember the original Parent Trap starring Hayley Mills. Remaking such a classic is difficult; the main character(s) has to be able to play two roles and make us fall in love with both of them. Young Lindsey Lohan was the perfect kid to take on the role in the 1998 version of the Parent Trap.
That cute little kid now personifies bad girl in more ways than one. Still cute as can be, the young star has made family friendly movies even though her life has been anything but family friendly. Whether it is too many nights partying, the drugs, alcohol, or any combination of the three, Lindsay Lohan makes being a bad girl easy- and the media can’t get enough.
Check back next week as we share insider tips on Rihanna, another good girl, gone bad!
Why Did 50 Cent Lose 50 Pounds Unexpectedly?
New Movie Role ”Things Fall Apart”
By Saytue Saye
May 31, 2010
Before starting his role as a cancer patient for “Things Fall Apart”, 50 Cent posted amazingly thin photos of himself online. The role he is playing is a tribute to his best friend who died of cancer.
Before his weight loss, he was 214 lbs. After his weight loss, he was 160 lbs. During his interview with Parade Magazine, he tells them, “The photograph that they see of me is day one of shooting the second half of ‘Things Fall Apart.’”
“The weight started coming off and my manager told me, ‘You better get yourself to a doctor!’ I just didn’t want to go because I had to match the look in my mind. “I was so into what I was doing that I wasn’t really concerned with that. I just kept looking at myself in the mirror feeling like I had to be smaller. I had to match.”
“I had so much muscle on me that it was hard for me to lose definition even as I got lighter and slimmer. I started running to suppress my appetite. Towards the end it was really difficult. It was like, if I don’t get close enough to what my best friend looked like to me at that point before he passed, then I’m not doing the story any justice.”
“I think the world took note because people kept making comparisons with great actors like Tom Hanks in “Philadelphia” and Christian Bale in “The Machinist”. There is no way to play a role like this without really committing to it.”
Surprisingly, this is not 50 Cent, aka Curtis Miller first time losing a lot of weight in a very short nine weeks of time from liquid dieting. When he was shot in the jaw in 2000, he drank only liquids and his weight dropped to 157 lbs.
The successful rapper said that it was much tougher for him this time around, because he had to discipline himself.
Curtis miller is gaining his weight back. He is currently 198 pounds.
Will 50 Cent determination and hard work win him an award for this movie? Do you think this movie will turn his career around and earn him more money than his rapping career?
Stay tune for the release of his fourth album, “Before I Self Destruct,” in November.
Dennis Hopper Dies at 74
By: Jimmy Eotm Baker
May 29, 2010 — Dennis Hopper dies after long cancer battle. The two time oscar nominee had a wildly successful career spanning over 50 years.
Hopper died Saturday at his home in the Los Angeles beach community of Venice, surrounded by family and friends, family friend Alex Hitz said. Hopper’s manager announced in October 2009 that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
He was a two-time Academy Award nominee, and in March 2010, was honored with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Hopper was best known for writing, directing and starring in “Easy Rider” and for his roles in “Blue Velvet” and Hooisers.”
He married five times and led a dramatic life right to the end. In January 2010, Hopper filed to end his 14-year marriage to Victoria Hopper, who stated in court filings that the actor was seeking to cut her out of her inheritance, a claim Hopper denied.

Eminem “Recovery” has 2 Ablum Covers?
By Saytue Saye
Which one you like better?
Eminem has proved himself loyal to the rap game and made a name for himself through his unpredictable behavior and hip hop lyrics. During April 2010, he tweeted to his fans letting them know that his follow up album to Relapse was going to be called “Recovery,” which he claims will be very different from the last one. The first single, “Not Afraid,” was released on April 29th and the full album is due out June 22.
The album covers for the disc have been released on his website, blowing up two versions; I’m still wondering why there are two different images. Don’t get me wrong, they are HOT! But, I just don’t see the point in having two covers. Why not use the other cover for another album? Sure thing, this dope lyricist will have his fans buying both, because if you are a true fan, you’ll consider having both in your collection. Looking at the disc covers makes me indecisive. In my honest opinion, they both go so hard that I guarantee fans will buy both.
The King Of Hip Hop Birthday- Lil Cease -
Reminisce on The Good Ol Days
By: Saytue Saye
Sitting back thinking of great memories of his late friend; Lil’ Cease love the memories he has of Biggie. One memory he has though is when he lost the ring Faith got for Biggie for his birthday. It was about $15,000.
Sometimes Cease wore Biggie’s jewelry onstage while performing. With this particular performance in Texas, Cease throws Biggie’s gift in the crowd with the money while performing “Gimmie the Loot”.
The youngest member of Junior M.A.F.I.A. did not realize the money was gone until they were back stage.
Cease said Big wasn’t angry, he just told him he had to deal with Faith.
Cease also laughed when he looked at a picture of Biggie blowing out birthday candles with Puff Daddy at a party, circa 1995. When asked how B.I.G. would celebrate his 38th birthday, Cease said:
“Today, he’d probably just be with the family,” Cease said. “We had our experience on the road: performing, doing shows, big parties. He definitely would have had a big party. A celebrity affair. But he also would have done something private with the M.A.F.I.A., close friends, wife. He kept it together with everybody he dealt with, and I’m sure they would have all came out and shown their love for Big and kept everything else under the carpet, whatever it was. Big had that type of heart, that everyone would wanna come out and show their love and spend that day with him.”
Friday, May 21 2010 was the King of Hip Hop birthday. I’m sure his fans would’ve loved to spend it with him. All we can do is reminisce about the astonishing music he produced to the world and bop our heads as we listen.
What is one of the greatest memories of Biggie that you can think of? Answer in the comment section below. Please reference, “The Good Ol Days”.
Lebron James Mom & Delonte West Rumored Affair
By: Stacy Briggs
Did this alleged affair cause the Cavaliers the Championship? Some say, YES! According to a sports gossip blog — Lebron James teammate Delonte West has been having an affair with his mom, Gloria James. A source told the infamous blogger Terez, “My uncle is the general contractor at the Q and has been for the last 7 years. He’s good friends with a lot of guys at the Q, including some of the bigger boys in the organization and knows Dan Gilbert personally.My uncle has been told that Delonte has been sleeping with Gloria James (Lebron’s Mom) for some time now. Somehow Lebron found out before game four and it destroyed their chemistry and divided the team. I am not making this up, I wish it wasn’t true but it happened,” says source.
In my opinion, the story seems a little far fetched. We’re relying on the word of an anonymous guy’s uncle here and gossip blogger “Terez” – but could it explain why Lebron didn’t play as well, resulting in a loss gainst the Celtics in the Playoffs?
Following Thursday’s game, Lebron said, “A friend of mine told me, ‘I guess you’ve got to go through a lot of nightmares before you realize your dream.’ That’s what’s going on for me individually right now.” Is he talking about his personal problems from an alleged affair between his teammate and his mom, or could he just be referring to the extraordinary pressure he feels from the city of Cleveland?
Why would Delonte West go after Gloria James in the first place especially when he most likely has a bunch of Cleveland groupies pursuing him? Something just doesn’t add up. Why would these two decide to hookup in the first place? Could it be true love? NOT!
Will & Jada Smith on ‘Oprah ‘ – How Saucy Can These
By: Saytue Saye
Will Smith and his georgous wife Jada Pinkett Smith were on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ on Monday and the conversation turned a little too censored for this surprised hubby.
“I want to know what you do to keep this flame burning,” Oprah asked. Will immediately became shy and embarrassed of her unexpected question, drinking from his cup while shaking, Jada jumped right in with no hesitation ”How saucy do you want to get, Oprah?” “Hey, we got kids in the green room,” Will outbursts.
Feeling a little to relaxed, ”I always surprise him,” she said. Now, if you are like me, I’m sure you are probaly burning inside and anxious to hear what she said. Sending him a sexy picture of some sort through the phone is definetely a spark mode. Shoot, who men do you know of wouldn’t want to see Jada naked? And if that’s not a gully look on her part, while on the set of ‘Hawthorne,’ “we might take a little break” she said. Hearing those words come out of Jada’s mouth reminds me of how real of a real woman that knows how to take control of her man’s needs! You go girl, put it on him! (lol)

Usher says: “American Idol is Killing Music”
R&B star Usher has accused TV talent shows Like “American Idol” of killing the music industry. “The true art form of music is being lost, because it seems so easy that everyone can do it, and that it can happen overnight. Television is a lie. It can’t happen overnight. The artist who thinks that it can just comes and goes. The reason why great singers cannot exist in this time is maybe because they’re not properly managed, and maybe they don’t understand the full gamut of what being an entertainer is.”
“We’re dealing with an industry that is slowly but surely dying, every day. There’s the record companies that are mass-producing these versions of these people; versions of this broken art. While it works, because it sells records, it damages the business.”
