I vote. I drank. I’m supposed to stop but I cain’t.

Ciroc Obama. It’s not just Diddy’s new “AKA” moniker.
Yesterday, my girl Brokey hipped me to a new drink for the politically-minded and pop culture saturated. Yup, the Ciroc Obama! I cannot wait to mix up a yummy apertif named for our presidential hopeful b/w a vodka best known for its association with Diddy for the inauguration parties. (oh, you ain’t know we was gonna party like Chapelle’s reparations skit?)

Chambord Ciroc Obama

I asked her what was in the C.O. and she reported: Ciroc, blue caracao, lime juice, & sprite. Okay, sounds good. The blue drink makes me think of blue states, and that’s hot. I got curious and Googled ‘Ciroc Obama’ and spotted another recipe being served at a Chicago bar. That version mixes Ciroc, Chambord, Fresh squeezed lemonade, and features a sugar rim. I’on’tknow about that sugar rim, though. Are they trying to say my boy Barry is sweet? Pause.

To be honest, I haven’t had Ciroc yet but I’ve heard that it’s good. I’m wondering, is it ELITE enough to carry the Obama name?

99 – A new men’s fragrance from Rocawear. If you were watching Vh1’s Hip Hop Honors last night, you saw the commercial for 99 about 99 times. I have no real opinion on the cologne, particularly since I haven’t smelled it. Some people are hating on the fact that it’s “Jay-Z’s fragrance” like that makes it wack off top. Maybe it does. Then again, Sean John’s Unforgiveable and Britany Spears’ Curious are selling like hotcakes.

My beef is with the commercial. See it here:

You see a beautiful woman in the shower, walking around in sexy lingerie, checking her messages. BEEP! “Hey baby it’s me, gotta work late tonight. Don’t wait up.” So what does she do? She sniffs his collar (which we are to assume carries the lingering scent of 99, not neck sweat).

What part of the game is that? Ladies, do you take kindly to getting all sexified and dolled up, only to have your man say don’t wait up?! Besides, years of movies, television and bad novels has taught us that “work late” is a euphemism for bang the secretary out on the desk. I don’t think so Jigga! That commercial is so stupid. Well, stupid except for the loop of “I Know” in the background. I love that beat.

I Want to Work for Diddy – Finale!

I started out having no ego. A lot of peole see where I am now and they think it was given to me.
– The Tao of Diddy

Sorry it took a little while for me to get to this. Spent two hours watching Hip Hop Honors. Now I don’t even know why. It was alright but I wasn’t really impressed with the overall show. Now, I can get to the IW2W4D Finale!

Last week was hot because we saw the PA hopefulls flail on their first day at Bad Boy. Poprah got her shit READ by Diddy himself.

Yo. the look on Kim’s face when Diddy hit her with the, “thank you for applying for the position” line was pure confusion. She was flabbergasted. THEN, after she tried to explain herself, she came up with the real reason Diddy cancelled her: She’s overqualified for the position. Ohhhhhhhhhh. Okay. NOW the personal assistant position is a waste of her time. Poprah/Kim, spare me. You were so gung ho about this position ALL season long. Now that you’ve gotten the boot, working for Diddy is bullshit? I can’t believe how some people can convince themselves of anything. Overqualified? Continue reading
