Lawrence Fishburne's Daughter is Now a Porn Star

Out of all the careers to choose from, 19 year-old Montana Fishburne is breaking into the movie industry. Not the elite movies her father, Laurence Fishburne is widely known for, but the adult film industry.

One thing, Montana or "Chippy D" said that bothered me to the 10th degree was: "[this movie] is a step in a direction," for joining the industry. Wait...let me take a second before I continue reporting instead of going on a rampage...............[pause] Matter fact, just watch the video below. You'll see how eagerly she watches her co-star, Brian Pumper and be warned of his foul and somewhat vivid language.


Vivid Entertainment, which also distributed Kendra Wilkinson and Kim Kardashian's sex tape, will handle the release of Montana Fishburne's self-titled video, which is due out August 18th.

Fishburne told TMZ she was inspired by Kim Kardashian, who shot to instant fame after her own sex tape was made public several years ago.

"I've watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape by Vivid," Fishburne said in the press release." I'm hoping the same magic will work for me. I'm impatient about getting well-known and having more opportunities and this seemed like a great way to get started on it."

Gone are the days of auditioning or submitting an acting reel. I can't see this ending well.

Irv Gotti says Nicki Minaj is just as Talented as Lauryn Hill

In a recent interview with VIBE, Gotti claims that “Nicki Minaj is just as talented as Lauryn Hill“.

His full quote after the jump…

The world has yet to see the best of Nicki Minaj. What she’s delivering to the world now is basically what they want. But I know that she’s a super talented superstar who can do anything at a high level—rap, sing, act, whatever she wants to do. This is just the beginning of Nicki Minaj. Her best is yet to come. In my opinion she is as talented as my other girl Lauryn Hill. They have completely different styles. But as far as the talent is concerned they both can do it all. Nicki just isn’t showing it yet ’cause she doesn’t want to. But world be prepared ’cause she’s the truth.

Is this a ploy to get his once influential label back on dry land? Hmmmm excellent start. [Insert sarcasm here]

Legos Are Our Lifesavers

Lego blocks are the playtime favorite for kids everywhere and many adults obsession. What is so sweet about the similarity between an adults restricted mind and a child's reaching one is the ability to create and be creative. Hillel Cooperman's lecture at the TED convention takes us through seeming subculture of the legos featuring CAD, open-source robotics and a little adult behavior. After watching this video, I'd urge you to become an individual that strives for creativity and self-actualization.


Show Your Crown

I had lunch the other day with a friend of mine who was born with the genius gene. He's a complete obnoxious specimen, but his clarity brings my life clarity. He said plainly, "Antoinette, this week, don't be afraid to show your crown."


I know I've been blessed with different talents, different qualities, and a level of success at the age of 24. All my accomplishments have happened because I made them happened--no hand out's here. But sometimes I allow my intelligence to get stifled as in attempt to make others comfortable during meetings and conversations. And although my next sentence will make me send like a Pompus Billboard I'm going to say it anyway: I also know that my beauty can be offsetting in a professional setting as well. Somehow young, intelligent, and beautiful are ingredients for women to spew malice and make my life a living hell.

So, when I heard, "...don't be afraid to show your crown" I stopped my fork (filled with yummy brown rice and veggies) mid air as if a light switch went on. BING!!! There are a certain few that carry royalty both from an organic and hereditary well and it's OK to give people a drink from it every once and a while.

This week, I have allowed my crown to shine, and I urge you to let your royalty show--no matter what. Don't be afraid by what other's may think or how someone may feel based on your natural genius and God given abilities. Continue moving down your own individual plan of righteousness. Be the best writer, painter, chef, plumber, designer, architect, or caregiver that walked the face of this earth.

While Christina Milian takes a leisure stroll with 6-month old baby Violet, the Dream
choose to go on holiday with his assistant Melissa Santiago.

The Dream's rep has released a statement saying that he and Milian are separated! The statement via Us Magazine reads: "Terius 'The-Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful. The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward.




While The Dreams reps are busy releasing statements, the only bit of news from Christian Millian's camp is from her twitter page, "
'Whatever you think... believe it."





Now if beauty's like Halle Berry and Christian Millian get cheated on...what's in store for the rest of us.


Feliz CumpleaƱos, Kahlo

Today we celebrate the memory of Frida Kahlo on her birthday, July 7th. Kahlo was perhaps one of the most prolific painters of her time. She was a mixed-heritage Mexican girl with a Hungarian and Jewish father, and Mexican Spanish mother. Born in 1907, she lived through the Mexican Revolution, dodging gunfire and riots, only to be shot with polio at age 6. Because of the polio’s effect on Frida, she wanted to study medicine and unlock the mysteries of the body. However, when she was 18 she was hit by a trolley. An iron rail went straight through her uterus; her foot was crushed and dislocated, and her spinal column, collarbone, ribs and pelvis were all broken. Alive, but trapped and crippled, she was given a special easel and some paints to entertain herself during the long and painful convalescence. And so Frida was confined to her bed for years; it was there, in that state of isolation, Frida made two discoveries-- that she had an amazing gift with oil based colors and that she would love Diego Rivera almost 20 years her senior for his ideals in politics and art. Kahlo is most known for depicting herself in various shocking visuals—especially for that time. She has said, “I paint self-portraits because I am the person I know best.

At 22, she wed painter Diego Rivera following a tumultuous ten-year union where both artists carried on numerous affairs. They soon divorced but some say you cannot truly divorce the heart as they ultimately remarried before Kahlo’s death in 1954.


Since her death, Kahlo's celebrity has only grown. In 2001, she became the first Hispanic woman to have her face put on a U.S. postage stamp, and her 1943 work "Roots" set the record for the highest-selling portrait by a Latin-American artist in 2006. She also had a movie based on her life titled "Frida" directed by Julie Taymor (Broadway's "The Lion King"). The film stars Salma Hayek as Kahlo and Alfred Molina as Diego Rivera, and was nominated for six Academy Awards, including a Best Actress nomination for Ms. Selma Hayak.



To put the icing on the memory of Frida Kahlo, Google as replaced their icon with one of Kahlo complete with vines interlocking around Google’s embloom.


Happy Birthday, Frida
