Well look what sweet little gift we just got. YBF just received these flicks of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz sharing intimate kisses…back in January of 2008. Interesting since that was the same period of time Swizzy was vocal about growing out his beard (as seen in the above pics) and still had his wife Mashonda on his arm at all the events:
Just in case you needed to compare the profile shots. This should be a lesson to all cheaters–don’t snap cell phone shots of you and “the other”. They always get sent somehow…
It was just a week ago that singer Tiffany Evans spoke out against Rihanna’s Russian Roulette as well as the satanic side of the music industry. Singer Omarion was recently asked for his opinion on Rihanna’s song and he too revealed a few things about the dark and shady side of the industry:
I don’t personally know Rihanna’s beliefs but I think there’s a very dark and very sinister part of the entertainment business and I think it’s very visible,” he said. “This is something that a lot of people don’t look at [but for example] Michael Jackson used to be a Jehovah’s Witness and I remember hearing that he wanted to separate from the religion — and this was during the time that he was doing ‘Thriller’ [which ended up being] his biggest album.”
Fast forward to now [and] it really made me think that there is a [time as an artist] where there’s going to be a choice. The[entertainment] world [dictates] that you have to be with three or four women, or do this in order to get that [and] I think it’s really interesting. With God and the industry, it’s really dark. The dark side is having to get in, there’s a certain submission you need to have. Just like a gang [initiation], so to speak. You might have to do something against your moral code. I’m not saying that it’s always this way, but when you’re someone that is young and you’re coming up in the industry and you really don’t have a grip on your morals it can be very dark. The game is just about over saturation.
I don’t know if Rihanna [has fallen victim to those pressures]. I’ve never really heard her speak about it. I hope that she doesn’t believe in that stuff and I don’t think that she does, but I don’t know. It’s not just been a Rihanna thing, [there’s has been religious speculation] about a lot of artists.
I guess these type of things can happen no matter what industry you are in but I have to wonder if it is all worth it? People want fame, money and riches so bad that they’d sell their soul to obtain it. I do think that some of the satanic rumors about the industry are exaggerated a little however this can be very discouraging to an aspiring singer or rapper especially if they don’t have a strong team in place.
Facebook has won yet another massive judgment against a spammer who already owes $234 million to MySpace.
A California federal judge on Thursday granted Facebook’s request for a default judgment against Sanford Wallace, who is known to have been involved with spamming since the mid-1990s and with junk faxing before that.
Court documents indicate that Wallace and an associate who was later dropped from the case spammed Facebook users with phishing messages. Those who clicked on the links and submitted login information to phishing sites allowed Wallace and his associate to then spam the phishing victim’s friends, in turn generating more potential phishing victims. Facebook claims that Wallace also received payment for redirecting some spam recipients to Web sites that pay for referrals.
Facebook sought damages of more than $7 billion dollars, as allowed under the CAN-SPAM Act and the California business code.
Expressing skepticism in his ruling that such a figure would be proportionate to Wallace’s offences, Judge Jeremy Fogel instead awarded Facebook $710,737,650.
“The record demonstrates that Wallace willfully violated the statutes in question with blatant disregard for the rights of Facebook and the thousands of Facebook users whose accounts were compromised by his conduct,” Fogel said in his ruling.

Victoria Beckham confided in the UK Harper’s Bazaar that she works out seven days a week to keep herself so tiny.
‘I didn’t want to rely on retouching,’ she said. ‘I wanted to look at those pictures in 20 years’ time and say, ‘Wow, look – after three kids – I didn’t look bad.’ “
Seven. Days. A. Week. Wow. I guess being married to David Beckham gives her encouragement, too. It would motivate me!
Victoria also talked about her fashion line.
‘I felt beyond vulnerable,’ she said. ‘I’d never known nerves like it in my life. The night before, I got nodules in my throat.
‘I’d never felt such anxiety. I was very aware that people were expecting very short clothes, probably quite revealing, and I really went against that and showed the other side of me.’
Victoria said fashion suits her better than singing.
‘I just want to learn as much as I can,’ she said. ‘ I was always pushed into the theatre and dance – it’s just taken me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do.’
And in a frank admission she dismisses her attempts at a solo career, which were panned by critics.
‘People never believed the solo singing career, and it wasn’’t the real me – I was a little bit lost at the time. I don’t mind making mistakes. I just can’t live with anyone else’s mistakes.
I think that is a great philosophy to live by: make your own choices so you can live with the results!
But… is Victoria trying to say her photos aren’t airbrushed at all? Well, you can’t argue that she is tiny and has quite a sense of style! What do you think of her designs?
