So last nights Super Bowl 51 may have been a triumph of sport for some, and a crushing defeat for many other fans, but the one team that didn’t fail to deliver was Hollywood.  The Super Bowl commercials have become infamous for outrageous commercials, and exclusive looks at summer blockbusters, so no matter which team you rooted for, all movie fans won.  Check out a recap of all the Super Bowl movie spots from last night.

Cap vs. Ironman… Move Over, Now It’s Nathan Deal vs. Disney.


Georgia’s governor, Nathan Deal, has until May 3 to either sign or veto a bill that proposes to allow a faith based organization to refuse property and service to anyone who “violates such faith based organization’s sincerely held religious belief” according to CNET.

This is a bill that supporters say defends “religious liberties” but others point out that all it really does is legalize discrimination, particularly toward gay people.  And this issue is more than just letting a bakery refuse to make a cake for a gay wedding, this “protection” reportedly extends to hiring practices as well.

Disney and Marvel, who do a lot of business in Georgia have thrown their weight around with this statement:

Disney and Marvel are inclusive companies, and although we have had great experiences filming in Georgia, we will plan to take our business elsewhere should any legislation allowing discriminatory practices be signed into state law.

This is a pretty big deal, ‘Captain America:Civil War’ was made in Georgia and the latest ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is filming there now.  Big budget productions spend a lot of money and they aren’t the only ones threatening to find an alternative location. According to Variety, AMC and Viacom are also not so subtly suggesting that Georgia better not sign that into law. AMC said this:

As a company, AMC Networks believes that discrimination of any kind is reprehensible,” a company spokesman said. “We applaud Governor Deal’s leadership in resisting a previous version of this divisive legislation and urge him to reject the current version as well.

And Viacom issued this statement:

Viacom is proud to champion diversity and acceptance, which are core values of our company. We have enjoyed doing business in Georgia for many years and we urge Governor Deal to continue to resist and reject the patently discriminatory laws being proposed.

So many productions potentially leaving the state could mean huge economic losses and a growing film industry would be shattered. But lets thank Captain America and Disney for standing against injustice.

Tyler The Creator x Waka Flocka.


At the Odd Future concert in Atlanta, GA recently, Tyler the Creator brought out Waka Flocka to perform ‘Karma’.  Just the sight of these two, young, unconventional artists on stage was enough to bring the house down.  Check out the footage below.

Kaaydah Marie.


This model post has a bit more gravity than most of the other models I’ve posted up in the past.  I want to address some issues with this one.  Now, friends, fans, clients and colleagues all talk to me with the impression that I’ve got an inoperable ‘jungle fever’ tumor somewhere in my brain.  I just want to make it clear that this is very untrue.  I don’t care who you are, or what your into, there’s no denying that Kaaydah Marie is 19 types of ridiculously hot.  Kaaydah grew up in Ontario Canada and is of Jamaican and English descent. She graduated from high school at the early age of 16 and proceeded to college for DePaul University on her freshman year on a full scholarship for the 100M.  Sexy, athletic and intelligent, she has graduated from IADT Downtown Chicago in Fashion Merchandising Management Major and she is starting her Pre-Med program this year. Kaaydah definitely has many goals and luckily she models on the side for fun to share her beauty with her audience.  Kaaydah has been featured in Fabolous Feat. The Dream “Throw It In A Bag”,  SHOW Magazine, Twista “Wetter”, the cover of Damn Girl Magazine, and the Fabolous Feat. Jeremiah “It’s My Time” video.  But look out for miss Kaaydah in more shoots, videos and magazines.

Gucci Mane’s Ice Cream Tattoo.


So the internet has been a-buzz with searches for pictures of Gucci’s new tattoo, I’ve got it, but lets start from the beginning… Less than six months after his release from prison, Gucci Mane checked himself into a rehab facility for an addiction to cocaine.  According to Ozone Magazine, members of the rapper’s entourage were involved in an hour-long stand-off against Gucci outside the Riverwoods Southern Regional Psychiatric Center in Riverdale, GA in October of last year. The group, which included his manager and lawyer, begged him to enter the facility for treatment, apparently interrupting a Narcotics Anonymous class that was taking place at the time of his arrival.  After coaxing from his lawyer, who convinced the ‘So Wasted’ rapper that failing to get help for his drug addiction could land him right back behind bars, the 30-year-old turned himself in for 28-day treatment. The facility, which specializes in alcohol and substance abuse released Gucci Mane a few days ago, but it looks like they released him too soon.  Check out the ice cream tattoo he got from Tenth Street Tattoo in Atlanta.

T.I. Making Records, And Saving Lives.


T.I. played Superman today, talking a suicidal jumper off the ledge.  According to TMZ, cops responded to a 911 call about a man who was threatening to jump off a building in downtown Atlanta … the same building where Ryan Cameron’s Radio Show on V103 is based.  T.I. heard about the jumper on the radio — and called Ryan Cameron to see if there was anything he could do to help out with the situation.  Ryan Cameron tells TMZ … he told T.I. to roll over to the building, where the rapper met with police and recorded a heartfelt video message which cops then played for the man on the roof.  After the man saw T.I.’s video he agreed to step off the ledge … and met T.I. in the lobby, where the two were able to talk things out.
