Lil' Kim posed for a photo shoot recently in her home after being released from jail. I thought it was interesting that she'd be "reading" the book, 'The Purpose Driven Life' by Rick Warren in the photos. Excellent choice. In all seriousness, this is a life changing book people. Check out more photos from the shoot over at Crunk + Disorderly.

Venice Film Festival

Spike Lee & his wife & kids came out for the "2006 Talent Lounge" hosted by the 63rd Annual Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy Monday. I've personally never seen him out with the whole fam. Nice.

Sean PatrickThomas & his wife & actress, Aonika Laurent attended.

Everybody's advocating reading this week I see. Good stuff.

performed at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan today and was surprised when she was presented with gifts just before her performance in celebration of her birthday today. It's her B'Day y'all.

The jury's still out on the album review. Can't wait to see how it's received.

Funny that the front page of Sunday's Los Angeles Times Calendar section read, "Beyonce is back with an angry record, and a juicy film role..."
Now, why would they tag her album as "angry"?! ;)
