Apple Siri Revealed On Comedy Show, The Big Band Theory: See Video

I am actually doing this blog post because of my friend, Eric, who is in love with this Apple Siri's voice. He's always going on about "Siri this" or "Siri that" like a love sick puppy! *eyes rolling* 


Well, Eric will be mad chuffed to discover what I just stumbled upon...voila...a video of the woman behind Siri's voice being revealed on CBS' popular comedy show, The Big Band Theory!

Just in case you are confused, Siri is the (female) voice of Apple’s ground breaking and well loved voice-powered personal assistant. If you own Apple products, then you should be familiar with Siri's voice.


Siri got involved in the story when Raj Koothrappali, one of the main characters in The Big Band Theory, got himself a new iPhone 4S and inevitably fell in love with Siri and her voice. So, Raj (aka "Eric's partner-in-love"), actually gets to meet her in his dreams. LOL! 

Hmmm...could Apple have sponsored this story-line for more publicity, seeing how infectious Siri's voice has been on guys? If so, Siri deserves a huge pay rise! Hehehe! Anyway, check Siri out in the video clip below.

Eric, this is for you!!! :D

Nick Cannon Covers Bleu Magazine's "MAN OF THE YEAR"


Bleu Magazine recently caught up with Nick for their upcoming Cover Story and he spoke on his newfound sexy symbol status as well as marriage to Mariah all while flexing his muscles for the accompanying photo shoot.
On being a sex symbol
[Being labeled a sex symbol] comes with the territory of being a solid husband and good father. Women find that kind of stuff appealing and sexy. Growing up, I was always the smallest kid in the school…I was the skinny and lanky dude…So I embrace [being labeled a sex symbol] now.
On his relationship with wife Mariah Carey
Mariah and I are both hopeless romantics. We just made a pact to say that we want to be in this because we enjoy each other and we love each other…We want to be successful at being in a relationship; we want to have a good time.”
A relationship shouldn’t seem like something you have to work at; it is not a task. We always wanted a fairy tale relationship…and the drama that normally comes with it, we [can] do without.
On being a father
I was built for fatherhood. I grew up in a family with a lot of kids…I have taken care of kids my whole life. As soon as my children were born, they became first and everything else became secondary.

HOODOO LOVE (play by Katori Hall) Premieres In LA **PRESS RELEASE**


New Theater Company to Debut With Katori Hall’s Hoodoo Love
Hollywood, CA (20 January 2012)—AGS Theater, Los Angeles’ newest theater production company, is all set to stage its debut production, their adaptation of award-winning playwright Katori Hall’s dark play, Hoodoo Love. The production will hit the stage on February 2-26 at the Ruby Theater at the Complex, with an 8:00 show on Thursdays-Saturdays and a 4:00pm show on Sundays.

Set in 1930’s Mississippi, Hoodoo Love weaves a fascinating story of love, jealousy, enigma, and voodoo magic. The play has been widely-applauded for its dynamic narrative and skillful use of vivid language to capture the culture and spirit of the Blues. Many have been enraptured by the play’s dark and foreboding atmosphere and the manner by which Hall masterfully blended the tale’s dark elements into a story that is ultimately about perseverance and hope.

AGS Theater’s founder, Michelle Andrea Smith, plays the role of both producer and lead actor in this exciting production. She’ll be gracing the stage as “Toulou”, the female protagonist who escapes from Mississippi’s cotton fields to pursue her lifelong ambition of becoming a blues singer in Memphis.

She’ll be joined on stage by actor Elijah Rock, who plays the male role of “Ace of Spades,” the blues musician who finds Toulou and gives her a chance to find redemption and love. Also joining the cast are Karen McClain,  Rickie Peete,  and Mark Anthony Williams.

The production is under the supervision of renowned director, Richard Lyon, who is well-known for developing such brilliant actors and actresses as Queen Latifah, Shia LaBeouf, and Jennifer Hudson.  Hoodoo Love was the first among Katori Hall’s many plays to be presented on stage, debuting in New York’s West Village in November of 2007.

Hall, who is from Memphis, TN, has since then written a number of major productions, including Hurt Village which won the 2011 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and The Mountaintop, which went on to win the 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play.

About AGS Theater  AGS Theater is owned and founded by Michelle Andrea Smith, who named the company after her late father, Albert George Smith. It is committed to bringing quality theatrical productions in the Los Angeles area.

Amber Rose's Former Publicist Calls Her "A Liar", Says She Stole & Cheated On Kanye West.


Janero Marchand, most known for repping video vixen Dollicia Bryant, took to his twitter earlier today claiming that Amber’s story about Kim Kardashian breaking up she and Kanye’s relationship is a lie.

He says Amber was stealing money from Kanye and when he found out, he told Kanye and she got dumped. Janero added that when he booked Amber for Kanye’s unreleased “Robocop” video (where she met Kanye), Amber never cut him his 20 percent from her $100,000 paycheck.

“Set the record straight. Yes, I introduced Amber Rose to Kanye West for the “Robocop” video. She stole my 20% of her $100,000 for the video.
Amber & her brother Antonio were going to Hawaii plotting & stealing money from Kanye. I didn’t want anything to do with it so YES I told Ye. That is the real reason they broke up. I will speak more on it in my [documentary], The Michael Jordan of Models: This Is Janero drops in Feb. 2012.

Drake's Massive $9 Million Bachelor Pad !!!


Just a few days beforehand, Drizzy held a huge housewarming party at his new $9 million bachelor pad in Hollywood Hills. He reportedly moved into the $45,000/month mansion after putting two condos up for sale in Miami.

The new residence includes six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a wine cellar, tennis court, volleyball court, 24-seat theater, and pool complete with a waterfall oasis that has its very own wet bar where Drake and his crew can drink to his accomplishments.

And did I fail to mention the on-site, five-stall horse facility with a riding area for any chicks who come over and want to ride. There’s even an ATM machine if you are short on cash. Ballin’
