I was at virgin megastore today. The one in times square closed, now the one on 14th street is closing. I find it insane that the illegal downloading of music has shut virgin down. I have stood online at virgin and gotten autographs and seen performances of many of my favorite artist. I also dreamed that I would do my first autograph signing there. I thought to myself "Where will people do autograph signings now?" I heard green day did one at Freakin Best Buy!! In-sane dude! In-Sane! It's sad to me. But I guess thats the game.

Nick Cannon's Corney ass has a Death Wish!!!!.lol.

Nick Cannon Fires Back At Eminem Over Mariah Carey Dis

Cannon blogs about Eminem's leaked 'Bagpipes From Baghdad.'


Who is probably the only person in the world who can erase a smile off the always good-natured face of Nick Cannon? One guess. He's known as rap's Mr. No-Holds-Barred: Eminem.

Cannon has taken major offense to a leaked record from Em's Relapse, "Bagpipes From Baghdad," in which Em raps about takingMariah Carey "back" from Nick Cannon. (Carey has denied Eminem's claims that they dated for six months.)

"Nick Cannon better back the f--- up," Em warns the actor/musician on the track. "I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk."

Later in the song, Em leaves a parting salvo: "Nick Cannon, you pr---, I wish you luck with that f---in' whore."

Cannon had a millions things to say in response on his blog on Friday.

"A mediocre (at best) Eminem record that sounds like it was written in 2001," Cannon blogged. "At first, I thought it was old material that had been dug up from when dude 'fantasized' about having a pretend fling with Mariah. ... But all of a sudden I hear my name in the verse! My first reaction was like, 'This is his new sh--? Wow, that's too bad.' "

Cannon said that Eminem's insults amounted to "racist bigotry." "She has had enough difficulty in her life dealing with racial and ethnicity issues," he wrote. "Believe it or not, Mariah is the same racial mixture as our beloved president, Barack Obama. (Black Father + White Mother= BLACK)

"Maybe I'm going too far, but I thought we got past the days where white men could spew vulgar obscenities at our beautiful queens and get away with it," Cannon continued. "What's next? Are we going to let this trash say something horrible about our lovely first lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama? Or would Marshall have talked sideways out of his neck like this about Oprah Winfrey? This act of racist bigotry cannot go unnoticed. Calling my wife a 'c---' and a 'whore' is way worse than anything Don Imus could have ever said. So trust, repercussions will be served. Anybody got Al Sharpton's number?! LOL Let's not forget about Eminem's amateur mixtape rants of calling African Americans 'ni----' and how he hates 'black bi---es.' "

The actor basically vowed revenge on Slim Shady, joking that he would begin rapping again and threatening comedic retribution.

"So, Miss Marshall, I'm going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife," Cannon continued. "This is going to be fun! It's however you want it! Just remember, you did this to yourself! Your legacy has now been tainted from this day forth! You will now be known as the rapper who lost to corny-ass Nick Cannon!"


I Love How He Tries To Play The Race Card!!!.lol.

Yes yes yes..this is gonna be insane. i cant wait for 2010!!



Seth Rogen Confirms 'Green Hornet' Director: It's Michel Gondry!

'It will be a great combination of ... both of our styles,' the actor says of collaborating with the visionary director.

"It's f---ing crazy!" he said when we spoke with him Tuesday, accentuating the point with his trademark laugh (which was imitated by Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard backstage at the Oscars).

His new "Green Hornet" collaborator is none other than Michel Gondry, the eye-popping auteur who gave us "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Be Kind Rewind," and too many classic music videos to list here. Capping off an exhaustive search, the "Pineapple Express" funnyman said Gondry is the perfect director for his comedic take on the crime-fighting newspaper publisher who first slipped into his green mask in 1936.

"Me and [co-writer] Evan [Goldberg] have always been gigantic fans of [Gondry]," Rogen beamed. "We just like anyone who thinks outside the box, and there's really nobody who thinks more outside the box then he does; he's really a magician in a lot of ways."

Serving as writer, producer and star of the film that begins shooting soon, Rogen admitted that he had always been pulling for Gondry to land the high-profile gig — and even helped the French filmmaker get an inside track. "I've actually been e-mailing with him for a really long time, because he was involved with the project a long time ago," he explained. "With the permission of nobody, I sent him our script ... to get his input and ideally convince the studio to meet with him. They were skeptical of ... I wouldn't say his ability to make a giant budget studio movie, but hiswillingness to make a giant budget studio movie. But he loved the script, he totally got it, which a lot of [potential directors] just didn't."

Gondry loved the "Green Hornet" script so much, in fact, that he began filming it immediately. "To convince the studio to let him do it, he filmed a fight scene on his own," Rogen marveled. "He just hired stunt men and did it by himself! Just to show some of the stuff he could do, some of the weird filming techniques he has and some of the stuff he can pull off. I mean, this is something he did in two days and it was instantly unlike anything you've ever seen before. It was impossible not to hire him once he presented what he could do for it."

Now, Rogen and Goldberg are looking forward to blending their unique "Superbad" sensibility with a decades-old crime-fighter and a thoroughly modern filmmaker. And while he assured us that the result will prominently feature Gondry's knack for making ordinary things look extraordinary, he was quick to say that the film won't simply be the Gondry we've come to expect.

"My direct quote to [Gondry] right before he met with the studio was, 'You have to convince them they're not gonna show up on set one day and everything is gonna be made out of cardboard,' " laughed Rogen. "And he said, 'I can definitely do that.' "

"["The Green Hornet"] will be a great combination of both of our movies, of both of our styles," Rogen said of the film, which hits theaters June 25, 2010. "It should have the type of conversational tone and comedy that me and Evan have been doing — and some of the action that we have been starting to try to do — along with the wild, visual imagination and funny awkward sensibility that he's been doing."





This is gonna be so damn awsome!!!!!

Louis Vuitton is "Sprouse-ing" up their SoHo Flagship boutique on Greene Street to celebrate the new collaboration. The store front will be wrapped in a neon orange graffiti vinyl (as seen above), as for the interior, how does neon graffiti over black brick wall sound? Definitely not your mothers' Louis Vuitton! The entire collection, which features bags, t-shirts, boots, shoes, as well as the much talked about $8,250 dollar skateboard and LV monogram trunk (which only 3 where made) was available today. The complete worldwide launch will be Feb. 2, though the Sprouse Rose motif will be in Louis Vuitton stores worldwide Friday the 10th. More pics of the items below. Enjoy!

WTf!?!?!?!?!?! Mcqueen & Target!?!?!? TARGET!?!?!?!


As Isaac Mizrahi’s final collection for Target cycles through stores, the retailer is unveiling plans for a new fashion initiative. Target in March will launch Designer Collaborations, which is aimed to be an ongoing program that will bring a series of established designers to the masses at low prices. Designer Collaborations is a separate program from Target’s Go International, which focuses on young or emerging designers and, in the past, has featured names such as Proenza Schouler, Luella Bartley, Behnaz Sarafpour, Rogan and Richard Chai. Industry sources have estimated that Go International does more than $100 million in annual sales.  The launch collaboration will be with Alexander McQueen, who will create a version of his McQ collection, called McQ Alexander McQueen for Target. “Both programs are geared toward our trend-minded guests who are always on the hunt for the newest and hottest looks at an affordable price,” said Trish Adams, senior vice president of Target. “Designer Collaborations is another way in which Target brings an emporium of designers to our guests. This specific McQ Alexander McQueen for Target collection does have the potential to skew toward a slightly older guest compared to some of our other designer collections.”  The retailer said additional Designer Collaborations are planned. Each collection will be available in stores for a limited time.  Participating designers will draw inspiration from a muse, creative element or collaborative partner. McQueen chose as his muse Leila Moss, the lead singer of The Duke Spirit, a British band known for mixing noise rock and grunge in the late Eighties and early Nineties. Moss’ style gave the line its rock ’n’ roll-punk vibe and hip-Brit accents. “We believe Designer Collaborations will appeal to our fashion-forward guests as well as possibly attract new customers who are fans of Alexander McQueen and McQ,” Adams said.  McQueen, who established his secondary line, McQ Alexander McQueen, last year, said at the time that it’s “younger and more renegade [than the main collection], but always signature McQueen.” McQ Alexander McQueen for Target will feature lightweight sweaters, skinny jeans, bubble dresses, slim skirts and cuffed shorts. Signature pieces include a coated cotton poplin black trench, a rock ’n’ roll gray denim cropped studded jacket, a men’s wear-inspired tuxedo blazer and a color-blocked one-shoulder dress with bubble hem. The collection also will include swimwear and cotton voile print scarves. Price points were not yet available. The collection has a muted color palette of black, white, gray and tan with accents of cobalt blue and bright pink. Studs and mesh give items an edge. For example, a chambray sleeveless shirtdress has stud detailing, there’s a mesh wrap dress and an open yarn zipper cardigan. Graphic prints and silk-screen photographs give tunics, dresses and T-shirts visual interest. The Leila silk-screen T-shirt with a necklace collar was designed for The Duke Spirit lead singer, while other band members are immortalized on a sleeveless jersey T-shirt. A sateen strapless pleat dress in a tattoo print of mermaids, dice and anchors is an example of McQueen’s penchant for pairing feminine fabrics with tough details — in this case, a studded leather belt.  “The McQ Alexander McQueen for Target collection will be supported with an advertising strategy designed to drive buzz and traffic via innovative out of home, online, national magazines and e-mail,” Adams said.

Mercy's Top 10 Albums of 2008

2008 was a weird year for music people say. I say it was a weird year for the music BIZ not actual music...there were alot of dope albums this year. Im upset I cant put em all up.


10. T.I. - Paper Trail
T.I. came back admist all the legal troubles and a subpar "T.I. vs. T.I.P" album. He pretty much semented his place amongst the tops in hip hop. "Swagger Like Us" was the BEST rap track this year. I dont wanna hear the word "swagger" in 2009....at all!!!! LOL T.I. also had two of the highest charting singles this year with "Living Ya Life" feat. Rihanna and "Whatever You Like".
Other Notable Tracks: "Swing Ya Rag" feat. Swizz Beatz, "What's Up, What's Happening"


9. Santogold- Santogold
When I first heard of her it was in some Diplo mix and i was hooked. Check out the EP, I was hooked. Waited for the self titled debut album, again.....I was hooked. Santogold's music was no genre, its a term that I like to call "alternative heat"!!
Notable Tracks- L.E.S. Artistes, You'll Find A Way, Shove It


8. Vampire Weekend- Vampire Weekend
"Kids Don't Stand A Chance" is my shit!!!!!!!! This is such a fun album. I KNOW everyone has heard "A-Punk" and you probably didnt even know it. Listen to the album.....now! 'Nuff said!
Other notable tracks- Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa (Illest song title for 2008), Walcott


7.  Raphael Saadiq- The Way I See It
I was ready to get my hair conked to the side, throw on a double breasted pinned stripped suit and head to the Cotton Club when i heard this album! Raphael Saadiq channels his inner 50's lounge singer on his latest effort. This is genuine Motown-esque music. Sam Cooke must be smiling right now. Oh, peep Hov on "Oh Girl" (Remix) too!
Other notable tracks- Sure Hope You Mean It, 100 Yard Dash


6. The-Dream- Love/Hate
The-Dream is a hell of a songwriter. He has a nack for writing a hit song, he has many, MANY hit records that he penned for other artist. Now, we have a album full of his own. The structure of the album is dope also, almost ever track continues seemlessly from the last, making for smooth listening. And I checked my iTunes, I listened to The-Dream's album 46 times!!
Notable Tracks- Fast Car, She Needs My Love, Purple Kisses, Falsetto


5. N.E.R.D- Seeing Sounds
Pete and I agree. This is N.E.R.D.'s best album. Hands down. The sounds and structure of the songs made this one of my favorite albums. There live show is mean!!! Why this album was overlooked....I have no clue. But take my word...its CRAZY!!!! And the video for my favorite song "Sooner Or Later" is my favorite video of 2008.
Other Notable Tracks- "Anti-Matter", "Love Bomb", "Spaz"


4. Q-Tip- The Renaissance
THE....BEST....HIP-HOP....ALBUM...THIS YEAR....PERIOD!!!!! The Abstract returned with this scorther that he produced entirely except for 2 tracks. Tip is the fucking man! "Getting Up" was on the most played song this year for me. I couldnt get enough it the song, or this album.
Notable Tracks- "Move", "We Fight/Love" feat. Raphael Saadiq", "Official"


3. Kanye West- 808's and Heartbreak
This is the one album upon hearing it....i hated it! I was disappointed. I mean...Autotune? 'Ye singing? I was intregired yet turned off at the same time. One day, I dont know what I was doing, what I was going through but I was listening to it and it all made sense. The songs, though lyrically simple, had an impact as you can hear the pain, the stress Mr. West was going through. He made an album that strikes human emotion and suddenly the megastar Kanye seemed human. "Heartless" is my shit!
Notable Tracks- "Say You Will", "Welcome To Heartbreak" feat. Kid Cudi, "Paranoid"


2. Coldplay- Viva La Vida
".....since Parachutes been a fan of Coldplay."....oh where was I? Yes, I remember hearing Viva La Vida for the first time and thinking, yo somebody need to RAP over some of these tracks!! You can definetly hear the hip hop influence in this album. Chris Martin never fails to impress me as a songwriter. It is in my mind there most complete and interesting album to date. The album artwork is also my favorite this year.
Notable Tracks- "Lovers In Japan", "Violent Hill", "Lost!"


Mercy's Number 1 Album of 2008 is........


Radiohead- In Rainbows
Sonically....this album is perfect. Lyrically...this album is perfect. Lead man Thom Yorke and the gang put this album out for free download only to later sell it as a regular release. Clicque or not...this album left me speechless. My words wouldnt do the album review any justice, you MUST listen to it for yourself. It is an event!
Notable Tracks- "Nude", "Weird Fishes/Arpeggi", "Jigsaw Falling Into Place", "House Of Cards"

Hope you enjoyed The FreshMen's music choices for 2008. Peace...and have a Happy New Year!!!!
