(NEW HEAT) Pee Wee Da Kidd – “Like A Villain” (VIDEO)

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Like A Villain (Explicit) by Pee Wee Da Kidd on VEVO.

Young, vibrant and charismatic, Louisiana artist Pee Wee Da Kidd is an up and coming artist/songwriter who definitely bears watching. His latest offering, the visuals to his song “Like A Villain”, chronicles everyday life and struggle Down South.

Hailing from a small Southwestern Louisiana town nestled between Lake Charles and Lafayette, Pee Wee Da Kidd is proof positive that being from a tiny area does not mean you can’t make it. In fact, it only makes him grind harder so he can be the shining star he is destined to become.

“Like A Villain” gives an up close and personal look at Pee Wee Da Kidd’s street side, but make no mistake about it – Pee Wee has definite crossover appeal. He is also the epitome of hard work paying off. He recently inked a distribution deal through Empire by way of entertainment powerhouse Starvin Lion Entertainment. Pee Wee is most definitely working up the ranks of independent artists.

Former Hollywood child star and “America’s little darling” Shirley Temple Black has died from natural causes in her California home late Monday night.

She was 85.

Publicist Cheryl Kagan released a statement on behalf of the family, saying, “We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife for 55 years of the late and much missed Charles Alden Black.”

Private funeral arrangements are pending.


Evelyn talks about incident with Chad Johnson

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

Reality TV star Evelyn Lozada, the estranged wife of NFL player Chad Johnson, said she still loves her husband “more than anything,” but she is “afraid” of him and believes he “needs to get help.”

“It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love,” Lozada told “Nightline” in an exclusive interview. “But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself.”

In her first interview since she filed for divorce from the former Miami Dolphins receiver, formerly known as Chad “Ochocinco,” after an argument between them became physical, Lozada talked about ending her six-week-long marriage to Johnson, what she says happened the night they argued and how she is coping. She said she will not get back together with Johnson and refuses to talk to him.

“I believe he loves me. I believe he needs to get help,” she said. “He’s a good guy that made a bad choice. He loves football and he’s very driven and a great dad. He made a bad choice that destroyed his life, and I hate that I’m connected to that.”

Johnson’s publicist declined to comment on what Lozada said in the interview.

On Aug. 11, Lozada was taking groceries out of a car that Johnson used to drive to football practice when she said she found a bag in the backseat with a toothbrush holder and a Walgreens receipt for a box of condoms inside. The receipt was dated July 20, she said, three weeks after they were married.

When Johnson came home later that evening, Lozada said she got into his car to confront him about the receipt and threatened to leave him.

“And then the next thing I know, he grabbed me by here [pointing to her head] and he head-butted me,” Lozada said. “I felt blood coming down my face… and I looked at him and I said, ‘You just head-butted me?’ And it just — everything just felt if it was in slow motion.”

The 36-year-old reality star said she tried to remain calm during the exchange because she said Johnson was angry, and denied he had done anything wrong.

“He was gone to me, like, it wasn’t him,” she said. “He got out of the car, really, really quick and ran into the house, and I said to myself, ‘I need to get out of here.'”

Lozada said she ran to a neighbor’s house where she hid outside until the neighbor came home and called the police. She then went to the hospital where she said she received six stitches on her forehead.

Johnson, 34, was arrested that evening and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. He spent the night in Broward County, Fla., jail, and was released on $2,500 bond, according to jail records. Following his arrest, the Dolphins cut the six-time Pro Bowl receiver from the team.

Just two days after the incident, Lozada filed for divorce, ending the couple’s 41-day “fairytale” marriage.

“I said to myself, ‘I’m never going to go through that again, ever,'” she said. “I don’t think any woman should ever have to feel like that or be fearful of her husband.”

Johnson denied that he head-butted Lozada, and in fact, told police Lozada head-butted him. An avid Twitter user, Johnson has used the social media tool to air his feelings about these past few weeks.

“I made the bed now I gotta lay n it,” he tweeted to his 3.7 million followers on Wednesday.

In response to a fan who asked why he deleted his bio off his Twitter page, Johnson tweeted, “I got to start life over and create a new one.”

On Aug. 14, just a day before Lozada filed for divorce, Johnson posted a statement on his official website, OCNN, saying, “I am going to let the legal process run its course. I wish Evelyn nothing but the best, I have no negative words to say about her, the only thing I can say is I love her very much.”
“I will continue to be positive and stay training hard for another opportunity in the NFL. I appreciate all my fans and supporters and if I have disappointed you in any way, you have my sincerest apologies. Once again I will continue to stay positive and appreciate all the support during this tough period in my life,” Johnson said.

Lozada was a cast member on the VH1 reality TV series “Basketball Wives” when she was engaged to former Celtics player Antoine Walker. The couple broke up in 2009, and she began dating Johnson the following year.

After a whirlwind engagement, Lozada and Johnson married on July 4 and their much-publicized wedding in St. Maartin was the subject of VH1’s reality TV show, “Ev & Ocho.” The show, which was slated to premiere on Sept. 3, has since been dropped.

Because their marriage only lasted 41 days, some skeptics claim that it was just a publicity stunt for reality TV, but Lozada said that was not the case.

“I was a very good fiancé and wife to Chad. I did everything I could to make his life better,” she said. “The person on ‘Basketball Wives’ is not the person at home. I don’t think he would marry me if I was.”

She hasn’t been back to the couple’s home since the incident, Lozada said, and believes that being away from each other is the “right thing” for both of them.

“I still love him,” she said. “I feel bad for him because his life is now a mess.”

D.C. Go-Go legend Chuck Brown passes away at 75

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Chuck Brown, the legendary musician who is known as the “Godfather of Go-Go,” passed away Wednesday,  his daughter confirmed to ABC7’s Sam Ford.

Brown died Wednesday at Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore. Hospital spokesman Gary Stephenson confirmed Brown had died after a hospital stay that began April 18.

His publicist says the cause of death is multiorgan failure due to sepsis.

Brown’s passing comes about a week after the Washington Post confirmed that the musician, considered  the pioneer of Go-Go music, had been hospitalized with pneumonia.

Brown’s 1970 hit, “Bustin’ Loose,” hit #1 on the MCA charts. The song was later sampled in the 2002 Nelly song, “Hot in Herre,” which won Nelly a Grammy.

He had recently postponed numerous shows due to his failing health.

“Go-go is D.C.’s very own unique contribution to the world of pop music, and Chuck Brown was regarded as Go-go’s creator and, arguably, its most legendary artist,” D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said in a statement. “Today is a very sad day for music lovers the world over, but especially in the District of Columbia. Without Chuck Brown, the world – and our city – will be a different place. What a loss.”

Thanks to Brown and his deep, gravelly voice, go-go music was uniquely identified with Washington. That’s where he continued to play the city’s club circuit late in life.

Actor Russell Brand arrested in New Orleans over incident with iPhone

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

TMZ and WDSU (New Orleans’ NBC affiliate) are reporting that actor Russell Brand was arrested by New Orleans police today.

Brand was reportedly arrested on a charge of simple criminal damage to property valued at $700. Police spokesman Remi Braden could not immediately release details of the incident, which apparently happened on Monday.

Celebrity website TMZ said the charges stem from a confrontation with a photographer who was trying to take Brand’s photo from a car. TMZ is reporting that Brand allegedly grabbed a photographer’s iPhone and threw it through a window of a law firm.

In a Twitter posting on Wednesday, Brand wrote, “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”

Neither Brand nor his publicist have been reached for comment.

Reggie Dominique of Perfect Publicity

Reggie Dominique – that’s a name to remember if you are in the entertainment industry.
Reggie is a publicist, handling media affairs for several rising stars, including beautiful singer Coline Creuzot. He not only handles his clients’ affairs with kid gloves, but Reggie makes sure he follows through until the last detail has been attended to, where his clients are concerned.
The Heat recently caught up with this hardworking young man and here’s what he had to say:
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell us about yourself.
REGGIE DOMINIQUE: As a self-starter, I have been recognized as someone with sound judgment and ability to lead a team towards its goal. I have gained valuable knowledge about the field and have developed effective communications skills by leading several team projects to successful completion. Currently a graduating Senior at Texas Southern University majoring in Radio, Television, and Film Broadcasting with a Minor in Journalism, I can say that I have already accomplished a lot at my young age. My communication, negotiation, and leadership skills are well above average as a result of my interactions with very diverse populations and individuals of all ages through various jobs and club affiliations. My motto is, “I am Obsessed with Success!” & I won’t stop until it is mine.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell us how you got into this industry.

REGGIE DOMINIQUE: I stumbled upon myself in this industry. I always knew I wanted to work in entertainment, but just didn’t know what branch. Once I started college, Radio/TV/Film was my love, but I wanted to learn the ropes of a few other jobs. I started interning at Music World Entertainment, a record company started and run by Mathew Knowles in Houston, Texas. There, I was an assistant to a few a people. I learned how to interview with business clients to gather facts and put these facts into written materials; interpret rules, regulations and policies; plus function positively as part of a team. In addition, I was also exposed to PR & Publicist work with a few more internships I landed. At that point, I built relationships with others just networking and getting my name out there – and I took it from there. Now, today I am building my brand, Perfect Publicity©, as a Personal Assistant/Publicist with a growing clientele day by day.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What do you hope to accomplish?
REGGIE DOMINIQUE: The sky isn’t even the limit for my accomplishments. I intend to work my way to the top in this industry by making a name for myself as one of the best Assistants and/or Publicist.  Being from Baton, Rouge, Louisiana, sometimes it is so quick for the world to ostracize you because of the “Southern perceptions”. It is important to think outside of the box and follow your dreams, which is exactly what I intend to do. So far so good.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Where will we see your career in the next 5-10 years?
REGGIE DOMINIQUE: In the next 5-10 years, I see so much for myself. Being ambitious is an important trait to have in life; it fuels you & that is what continues to push me to my goals. I would like my radio career to be at a high by that point as well. You will hear me as an On Air Personality soon! I’m sure to be one of the hottest DJ’s on your radio. My clientele will have definitely grown by then as well – more Personal Assistant & Publicist work in the near future.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How important is education to our youth?
REGGIE DOMINIQUE: Education is the KEY. You MUST stay focused and determined. I try to out do myself at all times. Challenge yourself. If you did something good the first time, try to do it great the second time! Without education, you can be transparent. So, I encourage the youth – our future – to STAY IN SCHOOL!

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Do you have any tips for our young readers who may be pondering entry into the entertainment industry?
REGGIE DOMINIQUE: This industry is forever changing. I suggest you start to educate yourself early with a lot of knowledge and get yourself out there. Do not be afraid to show your face, ask questions, network, and market yourself.
