"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
A Tribe Called Quest Is Getting all Their Just Respect these days…
We sadly lost Phife Dawg just a couple weeks ago. And Tribe has already taken over a Street in Queens, and gets Tribute performances all around, just as Busta Rhymes paid tribute to Phife at the KOD World Cup last Friday Night at the Honda Center in Anaheim
Well, just a couple days later Busta posted a pic from a pretty High Power Birthday Dinner for Q-Tip to his Instagram, one headed up by recent Oscar Winner Leonardo DiCaprio himself… and he brought along his old homies Kevin Connolly of Entourage and Lukas Haas who co-starred in The Revenant with Leo.
Leo’s always been a big fan of Hip-Hop, even doing his best to get Hip-Hop into his films…as Jay-Z was Executive over the Tunes for “Gatsby“.
And Tip’s and Leo have been homeys for a while so no doubt he did the reach out in a time where they’re still missing Phife

Mischa Barton was steady mobbin with the moms at Mr. C’s on Wednesday Night for Zapato Domingo’s Oscar Art Show.
Nuala Barton, who herself is a photographer, showed off her daughter with pride. Then said daughter posed in front of one of the many ridiculous Fisker Karma Electric Luxury Sport Vehicles.
Mischa, since your mama gave you life, and she showed you off like her art… you may as well buy her a Fisker Karma. She deserves it.

Lupus LA held their annual Celebrity Poker Tournament and Party, “Get Lucky For Lupus LA” at the Petersen Automotive Museum last night, and quite a bit of Hollywood turned out for the cause.
The event was sponsored by Coca-Cola, and brought out folks from all four corners of the Industry. Some of the guests included Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, Kim Lee, Melissa Molinaro, Shanna Moakler, Verne Troyer, Quinton Aaron, Slash from Guns N’ Roses, Ryan Cabrera, Camryn Manheim and Melissa Joan Hart.
Other folks included Josh Altman from Million Dollar Listing with his girlfriend Heather Bilyeu, Borat star Ken Davitian, Omar Benson Miller from Eminem’s 8 Mile and 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, Shaun Toub from Iron Man and The Last Airbender, James Denton from Desparate Housewives, Jose Canseco Industry newcomer, Rochelle Vallese from Alien Armageddon and a slew of others.
One expected celeb that everyone was hoping for, but never showed, was Jennifer Love Hewitt.
And while all came out to support such a great cause as the fight against Lupus, I couldn’t help but have a moment of remembrance for Christopher Wallace, more greatly known as the Notorious B.I.G., whose life came to a close in front of the Petersen Automotive Museum on March 9th, 1997, and putting a close to the East Coast / West Coast War which also caused the loss of Tupac Shakur.
Yet another night to remember.
Oksana Grigorieva swarmed by paparazzi leaving Court after custody settlement with Mel Gibson.
Mel Gibson will pay $750,000 to his ex-girlfriend and continue to provide housing and financial support for their young daughter to resolve a bitter legal fight that followed sexist, racist rants attributed to the actor. The dollar amount is a huge dropp from the reported $15 Million That Oksana could have walked away with last year, but refused.
The settlement disclosed Wednesday is intended to end the bickering and accusations that have permeated the case handled in mostly secret proceedings for more than a year, Superior Court Judge Peter Lichtman said.
Gibson’s payments to Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva are dependent on a lasting truce.
As part of the agreement, their daughter will receive support equal to what the actor-director provides for his other seven children. The former couple will split custody of the girl, who turns 2 in late October.
In addition, Gibson will keep paying for a multimillion dollar house he purchased for Grigorieva and their daughter. The house will be sold when the girl turns 18 and she will receive the proceeds.
As a result of the settlement, Grigorieva cannot pursue a civil case against the Oscar winner, and both sides were ordered not to speak or write about their relationship or allegations of domestic abuse.
Lichtman specifically said neither side could release any audio recordings, an apparent reference to the series of rants that were leaked to the celebrity website RadarOnline.com.
“You look like a (expletive) bitch in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of (N-word), it will be your fault,” the voice is heard telling Grigorieva in one tape. “You provoked it. You are provocatively dressed.”
In another snippet released by the website, Grigorieva is heard describing how Gibson hit her in the face, and she questions his manhood. The response: “You know what, you … (expletive) deserved it!”
Gibson has never publicly discussed the recordings and his attorneys did not refute they were the actor during a May court hearing in which Grigorieva agreed not to introduce them as evidence in the custody case.
Grigorieva’s payments were divided into thirds, with the final payment occurring in 2016 if the agreement is not breached.
Gibson spoke a handful of times during the hearing, mainly to acknowledge he understood terms of the settlement.
“I’d like to say thanks your honor for bringing this matter to a reasonable conclusion,” the “Braveheart” star said.
Grigorieva also thanked the judge and said she hoped the resolution meant Gibson’s career could resume.
She previously accused Gibson of striking her during a fight in January 2010, and the actor-director pleaded no contest to one count of misdemeanor domestic battery earlier this year.
Sheriff’s detectives also investigated Gibson’s claims that Grigorieva attempted to extort him, but prosecutors declined to file charges.
Gibson’s attorneys are still working to finalize his divorce from his wife of nearly 28 years.
Laura Wasser, who represents Gibson’s wife Robyn, told a judge Tuesday that they were putting the finishing touches on the divorce judgment and it should be completed in a few weeks.
Props go out to the beautiful Penelope Cruz, who is one of the few Latin celebrities to get her very own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, solidifying her as one of the most recognized actresses of our day. It’s not easy to cross over into this industry to this level as a minority, and Penelope has done so with style and grace.
Not only is Hollywood giving her just dues, but it seems so is life. Penelope finally found love in fellow actor Javier Bardem and the two wed last year in July in a small ceremony in the Bahamas. The two also welcomed their baby boy in January of this year after she (more…)
