- Yesterday Jay-Z and Kanye West’s long-awaited “Watch the Throne” album was finally released and early sales predictions indicate that it could sell nearly 500,000 copies in its first week. That would make it the second highest debut of the year, behind Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way.” [Billboard]
- Mega-hottie Boris Kodjoe took to his Twitter page to give the fellas some advice on manhood. His suggestions? “Embrace your imperfections; Laugh at yourself. A woman likes a man who doesn’t take himself too serious; Fix or build something with your hands. It’ll show her that you are capable of taking care of a home; Treat a woman the way you would want your daughter to be treated. Anything less is unacceptable.” We agree with that advice 200%!
