HUDSON’S HISTORIC PART
WOTS… Jennifer Hudson has been cast to play Winnie Mandela in her next movie

According to KN sources… the film will be a biographical portrait of the wife of former South African President Nelson Mandela

The offer to play the role really means a lot to the singer & in the new issue of “Variety” magazine she says…

“I was compelled and moved when I read the script…  I’m honored to be the actress asked to portray her… This is a powerful part of history that should be told.”
– Jennifer Hudson, Variety magazine

BUT movie making ain’t it!  Word is, J.Hudd is also recording the movie’s THEME SONG!  (good look!!!)

As far as the film is concerned… production on it is set to start next year in May

CONGRATS JENNIFER!

JACKSON’S DENIAL
Did you see Janet’s interview w/ Robin Robert’s?

Well in case you missed it… Ms. Jackson talks bout her brother’s use of drugs & his denial that he was abusing

According to Janet… she & other family members tried to reach out to Michael many times hoping to stop MJ from using drugs

“Those are the things that you do when you love someone. You can’t just let them continue on that way. And we did a few times. We weren’t very successful.”
– Janet Jackson, ABC Interview w/ Robin Roberts

Since we’re on the topic of Michael… Word is, the father of the boy who accused MJ of molestation has committed suicide!

Even Chandler was found in his NJ apartment earlier this month w/ a gunshot wound to his head & his gun in his hand

Apparently the dad was suffering from a metabolic disorder called Gaucher disease & was also bipolar… There is no evidence suggesting that Chandler’s condition was the reason for his death

Our hearts & prayers go out to EVERYONE…

EXPLOSIVES @ GRAND HUSTLE!!!
Now this is CRAZZZZY!

WOTS… 2 Molotov Cocktails were found in front of the Grand Hustle offices in Atl!

According to Allhiphop.com… a SWAT was sent out to the location to remove the explosives & investigators were on hand talking to witnesses & testing the actual contents of the bottles

There is no word on anything… WE’LL KEEP YOU POSTED!

NO MORE DIPSET!!!!
From a person that was once a fan, I gotta say… “I KNEW IT WAS COMING!”

In a recent interview former Dipset member Juelz Santana it’s all about “BAD BUSINESS!”

Now Jim, Hell Rell, Freaky Zeeky & Juelz are down to make it happen… but it looks like Cam isn’t on the same page!

“If you really look me and Jim [Jones] been shouting out the Byrd… My whole thing for not being next to Cam at this moment was ‘cause we had a bad business situation…I didn’t understand how I person that I thought was my brother could put me in a situation like that… If Cam feels like for whatever reason he is too big to get over whatever happened, or he’s too stubborn or whatever the case may be, so be it.”
– Juelz Santana, Eric B and Friends Morning Show

WOW!  Sounds like Cash Money all over again!!!

Will this crew ever work things out & get back together?  If it concerns $$$… I really doubt it!  (it was prolly never bout the “brotherhood”)
