My style tip for Tiny

T.I. celebrated his bday this past weekend and while every other site will be ripping Tiny apart for her wrong choice in a dress I thought I would do the opposite and give Tiny my very own style tip. I get where she was trying to go with this, let's rock the overpriced, skin tight dress that everyone and their mama rocked to show off my curves, how can anyone call me a ghetto mess if every other Hollywood socialite has been photographed in this number. Here's the problem Tiny, it's been done one too many times and while I will always be a fan of this dress it just dosen't work for everyone. But enough talking about why this didn't work, let's focus on how we can make this better in the future.

Why not try something like this Black Halo dress. The high waistline will suck in that pertruding belly while still excentuating your bust and booty! Head over to for more looks like this!

Love it or Hate it??

DWTS is def doing Kim right! Or is it??? She's slimmed down a noticeable amount over the summer and now its starting to show! I love a curvy Kim K but I'm not mad at a slimmer Kim either! Let me know your thoughts!

Heather Locklear gets locked up

Heather Locklear has faced some hardships throughout her life and now she can add the words Jail and Arrested to that list. Yesterday afternoon the former Melrose Place actress was thrown in the slammer for driving under the influence of too many prescription meds. I mean what is there really to say about this one, what hollywood actress isn't on a zanax or two or three....

JTP,Cons,Ricky C, Wale & The Clipse

Hey guys! Soooo sorry about my delay on blogging this weekend but life has been NUTS!!! I haven't had a second to sit and chat with you all, but have no fear I will be blogging throughout the week even though it will be sparatically make sure you all check back atleast two times a day for i may be blogging at weird hours of the night or day!
Anyway thursday night Consequence, Rik Cordero and I went on a little road trip down to the University of Maryland. Cons, Wale and The Clipse were all on the bill to perform. Super director Rik Cordero did his thing might I say as Cons's special guest DJ! Who would have thought that he's a director by day dj by night lol
The show was great, and I got a super exclusive interview with Yung Chris , it was so random to see him there but when Jen The Pen's around the cameras don't stop rolling, cuz as soon as Cons and Rik got off the stage they set me up to get my interview! Thanks guys! Check back for that today! But for now check us out at The University of Maryland!

Morning Coffee

A few weeks back Kim Osorio and I sat down to discuss how Jen The Pen could become a part of the Global Grind Family.
After one meeting, and one phone conference 4 esteemed women in Hip Hop sat down to start what we call the hip hop version of The View. Morning Coffee "Drink that Shit" will be a 5minute webisode every morning. The four of us will come together under one roof and discuss all the hottest topics in Entertainment, Fashion ,Relationships and Lifestyle.
Kim Osorio is a woman in hip hop that I looked up to for years while reading The Source and it's an honor to begin something that we hope will be a phenomenon.
Angela Yee is someone who up until yesterday never had the honor of meeting, we do a very similar job on the radio and on the same mic but never once bumped into eachother. I'm excited to get to know Angela.
And then there Miss.Tionna Smalls aka the talkdatish girl. And let me tell you she defiantly talked that ish on her blog about your girl Jen the Pen! But after sitting together yesterday we were able to better understand each other. I think we will have a beautiful working relationship.

I'm beyond ecstatic for this new chapter in my book and hope you all will do nothing but support me and the 3 other women who are all a part of "Morning Coffee"

Xoxo JTP

Rhianna does it again

Rhianna does it again. This time in full blown Gucci, does this girl ever miss a beat???

Kanye and his puppets

Yesterday Kanye announced that he and Rhymefest were teaming up to bring hip hop and the muppets to comedy central, take a peep at the trailer and let me know your thoughts.... I say "Interesting" lol

Shocker! Clay Aiken is gay!

Finally Clay Aiken has decided to come out of the closet. As if we all didn't know the truth anyway. In the interview, Aiken says that he didn't want to live a life of lies with his new son, Parker.

"It was the first decision I made as a father," Aiken says. "I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn't raised that way, and I'm not going to raise a child to do that."

Aiken says that he's aware that his fanatical fans (the Claymates) might have issues with his revelation. But he wants them to "know that I've never intended to lie to anybody at all... But if they leave, I don't want them to leave hating me."

I'm sure all those bra throwing Clay Aiken fans will be highly disappointed now......

JD's Bday Bash

Like I told you yesterday Jermaine Dupri celebrated his 36th birthday alongside his beautiful girlfriend Janet Jackson. All the regulars showed up, Coco and her tits made an apperance, while the Retro Kidz never miss a photo op, Jaslene is finally getting her style right and Neyo was there gay posing it up and all! Enjoy the flicks!

Peter Rosenberg @ The Cipha Sounds Comedy Show

Last night I headed out to the Cipha Sounds Comedy Show it was my first time attending and it just happened to be the 1 year anniversary. I thought it was so refreshing to sit in a room with mostly rappers and industry folks and just be able to have a few good laughs all together. Peter Rosenberg joined Cipha on stage for a minute, check out what I was able to catch. Everyone from Jim Jones, Ron Browz, Joe Budden,Red Cafe and 88 Keys were in attendance. I was so busy trying to get Jim Jones to give me an interview that I missed getting a good majority of bloggermercials but it's all good, 88 Keys stopped to show some love!

Pharell @The Nokia Theater

Monday night I had the chance to go see N.E.R.D. perform at the Nokia Theater, by the end of the night I found that I was pulling myself out of what was two seconds away from being an all out mosh pit. N.E.R.D. fans are NO joke. And while I had seen them perform numerous times during the Glow in the Dark tour nothing was like being right down in the mix with the people.
Check out my footage below it's a little shaky now and again but thats due to the fat girl next to me who wouldnt stand the fuck still. Pharell is an Obama supporter but thinks Sarah Palin is a M.I.L.F. Check it out

New Bloggermercail

It's been some time since we put a new bloggermercial up on
Julito aka Jay Brice from The Wire stopped by Gunit Radio to talk tv.movies and his new rap career. And not for nothing I I didn't think I was gonna be impressed by him but I was! This young boy can spit!

Happy Birthday JD

Hip Hop Mogul Jermaine Dupri turns 36 today, wow how time flys when you're making cash! He will be celebrating tonight in NYC at the very popular and trendy TenJune. I'm sure all the who's who of the industry will be in attendance.

Eva goes short

Eva Longoria has been spotted rocking a new short cut, but word to the wise, Short hair is not for everyone, and in my opinion Eva is one of those people. I do believe the new do is in efforts to make her role Gabby on Desperate Housewives look like a broke housewife....but girl when your out in the streets throw some pieces up in that head of yours.
Regardless I'm still a Eva Longoria fan I just want to see her looking fab at every possible opportunity.

Shanna visits Travis

Although the doctors have confirmed that both Travis and Dj Am will both heal completley within a years time, that didn't stop Barker's ex-wife Shanna Moakler from breaking down during her visit yesterday.

Shanna had this to say to the press: There are not enough words to express how thankful we are for the outpouring of love and support we have received during this very difficult time," Moakler said in a statement yesterday. "We can only ask for prayers as we heal and mourn the loss of our dear friends who we considered part of our family. Our lives will be changed forever,"

A source told People that Shanna "is there trying to lift his spirits. She's there for him and will be there for him as long as it takes. She loves him."

Notorious-The Trailer

The movie hits theaters January 16th, this is one not to be missed!

Marriage is in the air

Reggie Bush told that he indeed is ready to marry his #1 girl Kim Kardashian. Read below what he had to say:

How is it going with girlfriend Kim Kardashian?

“Great,” he said. “Great girl. Great friend.”

Is marriage to her in the plans?

“Yes,” he replied.


“Don’t know. But it’s coming.”


“Definitely. Absolutely. I look forward to being a father.”

Can you imagine how beautiful their babies will be???!!!!!

Also if you missed Kimmy on Dancing With The Stars last night head over to 
We know how I love Kim and all all but she only did an OK job in my eyes. She was a little to stiff for my taste, but it's only the first episode time will only tell what she can bring to the dance floor!

Dj Am and Travis Barker Update

A doctor announced Sunday morning that both Travis Barker and DJ AM Adam Goldstein are expected to make a full recovery from injuries suffered from Friday night's fatal airplane crash. Dr. Fred Mullins of the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors' Hospital in Augusta, Georgia, said at a press conference that the drummer and the record spinner both appear to be out of danger of losing their lives. Healing from second- and third-degree burns can take as long as a year, but "Since both Barker and Goldstein are in overall good health and didn't suffer from any other crash-related complications, a full recovery is expected."
Barker was burned on his torso and lower body. Goldstein's injuries were primarily to his arms and head.

I still can not get over the fact that the only two survivors were these two men. Crazy!!! There def was an angel watching over them and thats God's way of telling them they still have work to do on earth. My prayers go out to them

The 2008 Emmys

Although the Emmy Awards taped last week the show aired last night. They tend to be overly boring so I opted to watch back to back episodes of Army Wives. (Whoever is not up on it already needs to get up on it) Anyway here's some pics from the show!

Eva and hubby Tony Parker looked fab on the carpet
Love the sleek look on Hayden, not so sure about Jennifer's hair do
Heidi Klum showed off those amazing legs!
And why was L.C. in attendance???

When booty shaking goes wrong

I'm just shocked I seriously have no words for this... lol so you guys please do the talking for me

Hollywoods Richest and Poorest

According to a new report in In Touch magazine, the wealthiest actor in Tinseltown is Will Smith. Smith is now the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, earning $80 million a picture and making $80 million last year. But hip-hop producer and artist Jay-Z has Smith beat: he made $83 million last year. His wife, Beyonce, made $80 million, making them the “Richest Power Couple” on the list.
Former model and mini-TV mogul Tyra Banks was named “Biggest Cheapskate,” (ha!), and Katie Couric, believe it or not, is still the “Richest News Anchor,” while actress Cameron Diaz beats both Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston as the “Richest Actress.” Mysteriously enough, Diaz made $50 million last year. And of course, Madonna tops the list of “Female Pop Divas,” making more than $72 million last year.
Of course Oprah ranks in with her 260mill for the year!!!

And on the broker side of town, Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” was the hottest song of the summer - but by the time fall rolled around, she still hasn’t seen a dime from it. On Howard Stern’s Sirius radio show, Perry admitted that “the money is still not coming in yet.”

Lindsay Lohan has raked in $15 million as an actress and a product pitchwoman. But Lohan has managed to spend a lot more than that. With expenses like $1 million on beauty treatments, $1 million for stays at the Chateau Marmont, and $10,000 a night on drinks during her pre-rehab days (rehab alone cost more than $310,000), it’s no wonder she is now on a strict budget.

5 things to buzz about

1. Experts say when you're very hungry, your brain views food as tastier and you risk overeating. So make sure to include small snacks into your daily routine like a yogurt or a banana, this will help curb your appetite but still leave enough room for lunch or dinner.

2. Forty five percent of young women say they feel stressed frequently as opposed to 32 percent of men. I'm guessing we women stress more because we go off of emotions while men go off of logic. (Or so they think)

3. Not getting enough shuteye?? They say to lighten those circles just slice up a potato and place em over your eyes.

4. Nineteen percent of guys have blown off a girl after seeing negative stuff about her online. Hmmm...this has to be a tough one since so many of us put our personal biz out there via myspace,facebook and blogs.

5.So you're significant other is going on a long trip and you're worried about missing them?? Just ask him/her to leave the last item they wore with you, studies show just being able to smell your partners scent can make you feel happy!!!

Diddy Steps in Shit.... Literally

Hahahahahahahahhaha they say stepping in shit or a bird shitting on your head is good luck, well Puff must have stepped in a hell of alot. The paps caught Diddy step right into some doggy do do on the streets of LA, I chuckled to myself as I clicked through the photos watching Diddy go thru the motions of trying to clean the bottom of his sneaker. LMFAO @ the bottom pic, check his bodyguard backing off like 'Don't get that shit on me" Hahahahahahahhahahahah

Josh Howard...Officially a Moron

Dallas Maverick player Josh Howard thought it was funny to disrespect our countries National Anthem while being filmed by some nobody rapper named Los out of Baltimore. The media nor did the public find it very funny and now these young boys are under pressure. Peep the videos below the first one is Josh being a moron and the second is the dude Los on Sports Center being questioned about their motives.

Kim K shops H&M

I know I know I did a Kim K sighting twice this week, this now being the third.But as I am sure you have all figured it out by now she's my absolute favorite "IT" girl of the moment. So please excuse my obsessive ways every now and again.
Kim was caught shopping at H&M yesterday with her film crew in tow. Looks to me like Kim was doing some shopping in the men's dept, Im gonna take a wild guess here and say she dresses in nothing but designer from head to toe but throws her "I can't get fresh man" in some everyday H&M rif raf. Ehhh he's an athlete and hella good looking so noone expects him to know how to dress anyway.
But what I loved most about this pic are those Christian Louboutin's Kim is rocking! You must click on the pick and zoom in because these shoes are fierceeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I headed over to their site which happens to be under construction, so I proceeded to head over to Bergdorf's to find these pricey little puppies. Unfortunatley I didn't find the ones I was looking for but if you scroll down I did find a pair just as fly..well almost as fly, the Airella Python ankle boot for a whopping $1555.00. I swear I'm ready to step into the good life, I promise I'll be a good little star!!! Haha

Brandy on 106

Brandy's new album "Human" hits stores in November and I seriously can not wait! Her new single "Right Here" is incredible. Everytime I listen to it, it feels like the first. The pics above are some new promo pics and she looks amazing this girl is not skipping a beat this time around.
She appeared on 106 last week, she was soooo sweet and humble. It's great to see a superstar like Brandy be sooooo excited to be on 106 &Park to meet Rocsi and Terrence.

People Magazine's 10 Best Dressed

Yesterday People magazine revealed it's top 10 best dressed woman, Sarah Jessica Parker and soon to be first lady Michelle Obama topped off the list, followed by Kate Hudson,Fergie,Charlize Theron and Rhianna.

Stars they're just like us

Even Kim Kardashian finds time in her day to pick up her own dry cleaning.

Aubrey O'day sure is a sexpot

WoW WoW Wow!!!! Aubrey is sure putting her sex kitten out on the prowl for her spread in Complex Magazine, but what I'm trying to figure out is why the hell she didn't just go and do playboy I'm quite sure Grandpa Hugh would have put up some real bread for Aubrey and her fake ta ta's. I mean to me the pictures are soft porn, I'm not completley mad at her only because we all know Diddy ain't cutting those checks so these chicks have to get out here and work what they got. Butttttt last time I checked Aubrey you are in a pop group and there's little girls out here looking up to you, there is a way to be sexy while keeping your clothes on.
Scroll down for Q&A's from the interview

Aubrey On Her Love Of Porn:

“I usually watch black guys doing white girls, that’s my little fetish, even though in real life race isn’t a factor for me. Really, I’m more turned on by watching the girls than the guys. I love someone who looks like they’re really into sex.”

Do you think a guy could ask to use the back door the first time?

For females in general, sex is so much bigger than the physical feeling. It’s so emotional for us. I’ve known tons of girls who’ve had tons of sex with different people, and it’s the same thing across the board. So in order to let somebody go to that degree of sex, you have to really 100-percent trust them.

Well, when you’re out at clubs, you must get approached in an aggressive way.
I think urban guys look at me and are like, “Here’s the white girl I’m gonna f*ck.”Like, I met a famous basketball player the other night.

Who? What team?
Aubrey O’Day: I can’t, he’s too big. And, like, married.

LeBron! Carmelo! Yao Ming?!?

[Silence.] So this nasty guy came up to me and says, “Come here. I’m the man, haven’t you heard?” And I said, “Well, I’m the woman, haven’t you heard?” And he was like—this is the third thing out of his mouth—“Well, I have a hotel here, so when are you going to come by to my room?” It was so embarrassing and corny. I was disgusted. It’s funny that they think they can talk to me like that, like it’s so easy. “There’s that ho from Danity Kane, let me get her off tonight.”

All this porn talk raises the question: Would you ever be in one?
Aubrey O’Day: I wouldn’t. I’d like to keep my sex life personal. I’ve had sex on camera with my boyfriend for fun, though.

Damn, you know those things can leak, right?

Aubrey O’Day: I’ve made all of them delete it right after we watched it.

That’s what you think.
No, I’ve watched them delete it. But let me tell you the key to that. If you do a live feed through the TV, you can watch it on the TV while you’re doing it and it never records

Paris,Not France

Because being the heiress to the biggest hotel chain in the country, branding yourself as a this century's #1 socialite, a sex tape, two reality shows now under her belt, a book and a perfume line weren't enough Paris Hilton had to make sure to go and get some up and coming director to do a documentary on her for shits and giggles. But whats even more pathetic is the attention the film director and the documentary is getting from CNN.
Clearly Americans need a break from the recession, politics,and the sinking stock market, so that's why CNN found it important to reveal these "Who Gives a Fuck"(my wording) tidbits about Paris Hilton from her documetary "Paris,Not France"

Hilton states that she loves to sleep as much as she can, continuing to snooze in bed in the morning while her hair and makeup are done.

She reveals some of her scary dreams, including one where her teeth fall out and one where her brakes fail while she's driving the steep hills of San Francisco.

While strolling with her cell phone pressed to her ear, Hilton confesses to the camera, "I pretend to be on the phone all the time so people don't talk to me."

That's right. So people don't talk to her. Because clearly Paris Hilton hates attention.

Move over Swizz, AZ wants your side piece

So this is what rappers are forced to do when their second or third shot at the rap game goes belly up and album sales go under??
Instead of making videos about what chicks you wanna "Smash" hows about you go put a pen to a pad?? Not a half bad idea now is it.

"Straight From The Source"

Two weeks back I promised you all that as I read "Straight From The Source" a expose written by Kim Osorio (former editor in chief) of the Source magazine that I would indeed supply you all with excerpts from the book that I found interesting. I have to admit I've been a slow reader trying to juggle so many things, but not slow enough to miss chapter eight "California Love"

"Right before 50 went out to L.A.,we became friends. Industry friends, of course. Then one day he asked me to be more then that. Initially, I was caught off guard. It happens in the music industry. One minute you are working, then the next minute you are in a full blown relationship,or atleast that's what you think it is until it's over. Our conversations would start off with SoundScan numbers, the recording industry's weekly synopsis of album sales, then end with what sounded like a song line. I used to hit the speakerphone button while he was talking just so someone in the network could see me mouth the words as he said them because I always knew what he was about to say. Sometimes I would hear words in songs that I swore I'd heard before. "Will you be my best friend" he asked me once during a late night phone call. I think 50's everyday conversation is just constant practice for his next album."   -Kim Osorio

Sex and The City in Stores Sept.23rd

Lynne Spears sets the record straight

When I first heard the mother of Britney Spears wrote a book titled "Through the Storm" I thought to myself look at this woman here, trying to milk that cash cow one more big time. But after watching Lynne tell her side of the story this morning on the Today show with Meredith Viera, I am now able to better understand Lynne Spears and why she felt so strongly about writing the book.
We're all human beings at the end of the day, no matter what your status is, and with being a human being we all just want to protect what's close to us and have the opportunity to tell our side of the story and defend ourselves. I found the interview rather interesting.. let me know your thoughts!

Want more Jen The Pen???

Hey guys! Sorry for the delay on posting today, I had a meeting in the city today that just happened to be a HUGE waste of my time!!! And as if my time wasn't important enough I got to spend money on parking, gas and tolls for an hour worth of b.s. Don't you all just hate that!!!!
Anyway.....My new video blog is up so head over to 
StreetzonFire now to see my 5th video blog!!!


"Change. We don't like it, we fear it. But, we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, anyone who tells you different is lying. The more things change the more they stay the same. Sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything."

I brought my baby Talula Belle home almost 4months ago. When I made the decision to get another dog it came at a time when change was definitely present in my life, I chose to bring Miss. Lu Lu into my family because I needed something to care for, something that I could love unconditionally and that would love me back that same way. Flaws and all. What I didn't know about bringing Lu Lu home was that she was about to become the tiny blessing that would then save my relationship. She was a good change a very good change. Change is now getting ready to make it's big impression on me once again, but this time I'm not so sure if Lu Lu will be the one to save me now, see Little Miss. Lu Lu had a big change herself this past week. She went from a spunky little puppy to a PMSing little lady over night. And I mean that literally. 
What I'm trying to say is you're never quite ready for change( I highly doubt Lu Lu was ready for her change) no matter what it is good or bad, most of us out here, we're creatures of nature , we like what's close to our hearts to stay the same and never change. But change is happening everyday. And in the blink of an eye your whole life can be upside down. So I guess the best thing you can do when "Change" comes knocking on your door is to jump on and hope the rides not too bumpy.

Solange gets real with Tyra

Solange appeared on Tyra Banks and honestly I think it was the best interview I've seen of her thus far. After watching this any poor or negative thoughts I had towards Solange have all disappeared. She really allows you to see a vulnerable side to her, she talks about her son Daniel and losing a good friend to an act of crime.
Watch here DimeWars

Weezy tops BET HIP HOP Nominations

BET recently announced their picks for the BET Hip Hop Nominations and Lil Wayne has scored big time!!! With 12 nominations Weezy will take atleast 8 of those home, easy! Kanye was nominated for 8 while Jigga man got a wack 6. Who's the king of hip hop now?????

Kardashian Spotting

The Kardashian Sisters were spotted having lunch together at The BLVD in Beverly Hills as they filmed some scenes for their upcoming season of Keeping up with The Kardashians. Between this show, Chelsea Lately and Denise Richards the E! channel has become my favorite bad habit!
