RR Rumor: Red Cafe’s A Bad Boy

My homegirl Angela Yee went down to Atlanta for the Core DJ’s conference this past weekend, and Diddy pretty much scolded all the turntable assassins for being copycats and afraid to embrace and break new music. Yup, Yee got some Flip Cam on the way, but Puff advises: “Don’t be afraid to clear the dance floor.” Um, ok. Good advice.

Anyway, according to a Bad Boy promo guy who couldn’t resist Yee’s charms, Red Cafe is the newest member of the Bad Boy team. And he’s gonna make that nigga Puff… nevermind. Hey if you’re still scoring at home, you’ll recall Cafe is signed to Akon’s Konvict label. But supposedly, this is gonna be some kind of big business co-venture. The lengths Combs will go for A level lyrics for his Last Train to Nowhere. Smh. “What else?” Nothing. That’s it.

UPDATE: Joni Mitchell YN never lied.

Ron Howard Explains “Blame It” Cameo

Richie Cunningham Ron Howard talks to EW (No Elliott Wilson) about his appearance in Jaime Foxx’s video, “Blame It“.

“We were at the inauguration, and there was this tent full of showbiz people and their families. Jamie came over and said, ‘Hey, I’m shooting a video in L.A., will you come by?’ I was picturing a sort of ‘We Are The World’ thing. So I showed up, and Jamie said, ‘It’s this party scene, and you’re going to drive up with Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker and me. The only thing is that you’ve got to wear your party face.’ I said, ‘I don’t think you want my party face, because this is it . That may not be what you want.’ Jamie and the director, Hype Williams, said, ‘No, we want your game face, very serious.’ So we’re getting ready to roll and all we hear from the director is, ‘Uh, hey Ron, no smiling, remember, real serious, real serious,’ and, ‘RON, NO SMILING, NO SMILING,’ and, ‘RON, NO SMILING!’ and, ‘ACTION!’ So we did that a couple of times, and then we went in and sat with the girls and toasted champagne. I had no idea what in the world it was or what I was doing. I do not have a secret night-clubbing side. I’m the opposite of a big pimpin’ kind of dude. Probably the last time I was in a club was doing research for Night Shift in 1981. Discos, they were called then. When I saw the finished result I did ask around: ‘Is it okay that I did this?’ I mean, I am one of the whitest men in the world. I like singer-songwriters. But I thought it was funny that I was in it. Jamie sent me a case of champagne and I asked him if I could now blame everything on the a-a-a-alcohol. I haven’t heard back from him on that.”
