What up doe! It’s freezin’ cold in the D, but I’ve got some hot tea to warm you up.
When it comes to tea, music icon Quincy Jones spilled a lot of it in an interview with Vulture magazine. Jones allegedly said the comedian Richard Pryor was one of the sex partners of “Godfather” legendary actor Marlon Brando. Word has it that Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Pryor, reportedly backed up the claim saying it’s true. She said drugs were off the chain back in the 70s. They weren’t watered down. “If you did enough cocaine, you’d f*** a radiator and send it flowers in the morning,” she explained. She also said that Pryor didn’t stay locked up in the closet but openly admitted to being bi-sexual. Pryor allegedly told of his experience with a transgender woman, who looked like Josephine Baker, while under the influence of cocaine. Someone shoulda checked him into a rehab instead of a hotel.
Moving ahead in time, R&B singer Frank Ocean is reportedly not hiding in the closet as well. Rumor has it that he and his longtime boyfriend Memo are engaged. He reportedly put his personal life into song on his album Blonde and released a coming out letter that told about his first love being with a man.
This week must be a week of Confessions. Rapper Cardi B says don’t get it twisted. B doesn’t stand for blue cause she’s been reppin’ Blood since she was 16. The word “blue” isn’t even her vocabulary and has been replaced with “flue”. She reportedly said that the only way she’ll leave her gang is to get killed. Now, that’s either dedicated or stupid. Meanwhile, she better watch her back, cause word has it that the Crips don’t appreciate her comments.
Instead of watching her back, Cheryl Elizabeth Clemons AKA Coko, lead singer of the 90s R&B group SWV (Sisters With Voices) may have to watch her purse. The 47-year-old singer recently announced that she is divorcing her husband Mike Clemons. The couple have reportedly been married 15 years and have a son, Jaylon. “We always thought we’d be together forever,” she said. “Through the good, the bad, the ugly, the ups and the downs…we’d still, be married. But, things don’t always work out the way we plan or hope. Our fairytale has come to an end. I’ll definitely miss him! But life goes on and I have to make the best of it. I wish him all the best in his future. I pray that he will lack nothing! For the sake of our son we will do our best to co-parent. We’re not enemies, we’re just two people that fell out of love. Life after divorce kind of scares me, but I have to be strong for myself and my son. God got me and I’m surrounded by a great group of family and friends that hold me down. My Village! I am blessed and highly favored!” Let’s hope her village is ready to protect her assets. Rumor has it that her net worth about $10 million.
And, on that note, we’re outta here. Peace out!
