Dear MSN,

Please stop formatting incorrectly. You suck ass, and I refuse to read you.

Love,

If anybody hasn't seen the Tiffany Playboy pics you're missing out. It was my sole goal in life as a wee lad to be the meat in a Debbie Gibson/Tiffany sandwich. I was too young to know what I would have been doing but damn, I sure would have had a lot of fun trying to figure that part out.

For those who criticize him, let it be known that he gives more to charity (percentage of income) then most of you. With that said, let the flame war on rap begin in 3...2...1....

boring....

needs more box-kicking/shoving

Nothing says Christmas like a Ludacris fight at the mall.

/Not sure why you'd take your child to see Ludacris anyway.
 
2004-12-12 10:46:03 PM  
Oh hell no, "City Gear?" Is it that much trouble to actually spell the damn word correctly and not try to be "hip and urban?"
 
2004-12-12 10:46:57 PM  
Did some fat chick eat the line?
 
2004-12-12 10:47:20 PM  
Wow, 300 dollars, how giving.
 
2004-12-12 10:47:36 PM  
Err, that was supposed to read "Citi Gear." Maybe I should kick my own ass for lacking fundamental reading comprehension skills while I criticize "urban" culture, I suck.
 
2004-12-12 10:47:54 PM  
i saw ludacris playin a corner in seattle outside the space needle today. the accordian work was excellent.
 
2004-12-12 10:49:09 PM  
Well over 100 people had been waiting for more than 30 minutes for the rapper to arrive.

when you're less popular at the mall than the officemax black friday sale you can't be that cool

/likes ludacris

Ludacris was at the Rockets walloping last night.

Actually it's so they can get sued by Citigroup....and get ton's of free publicity
 
2004-12-12 10:55:54 PM  
Well over one hundred people? Looks like Ludacris is racking up the big bucks in 'bama.
 
2004-12-12 10:56:05 PM  
"Get out of my mall. Tiffany never started shiat here."

Sure
she didn't...

I imagine Ludacris would have behaved in a much more civil manner at a really good sale.

headline... has... nothing... to do... with article....

I am absolutely baffled as to why violent crowds tend to plague certain events, like the "You Got Served" movie premiere, or the Source Awards, or even a Ludacris meet-and-greet event. Just weird.

I don't care how much Ludacris gives to some stripper named Charity, I'm still not impressed.


"As former Phillies pitcher Curt Schilling said, "Mystique and Destiny? Sounds like a couple of strippers.""

Does Mr. Falafel have any relation to this incident?

"They clearly weren't prepared for this or had no idea how big an artist he was," said Tiffany Jones, of Montgomery, who had brought her two children to see the rapper. "Security was inadequate, and it was an unsafe environment."

Most poetic, subtle troll EVER.
 
2004-12-12 11:04:49 PM  
It's an unsafe environment when a mall security cannot handle a crowd of 100 people queueing. Where's the immediate apparent danger?

How do they cope when they have a sale on!

I'm picking up your sarcasm...
 
2004-12-12 11:06:50 PM  
They weren't prepared for 100 people to show up at a mall? There's probably 200 people in each of the anchor stores at all times.
 
2004-12-12 11:09:35 PM  
I never heard of Ludacris, but stores and malls should anticipate a crowd for ANY celebrity. Tenants planning to host book signings, character appearances, etc. in their stores are supposed to notify mall management AHEAD OF TIME.

/Used to work in a mall
 
2004-12-12 11:10:48 PM  


Ludicrous Speed!
 
2004-12-12 11:12:45 PM  
Alabama?

If by 'mall' they mean Wal-Mart, and by 'security' they mean a wall of shopping carts and Ludacris' promoter smacking people with a clipboard, then 100 people might be a problem.

I went to Walden Books once during a book signing. There were well over a hundred people there waiting to have their book signed.

No fights broke out then. I'm thinking there's more to this story than just having a crowd of a hundred or so people.
 
2004-12-12 11:16:18 PM  
Somebody had to post it...

 
2004-12-12 11:16:57 PM  
What the article doesn't say is that the people were actually there to see the new boy band Fingerbang.
 
2004-12-12 11:17:07 PM  
Course it dosn't say why the fight broke out.
 
2004-12-12 11:21:08 PM  
Weak headline.
 
2004-12-12 11:22:12 PM  
slcpunker, doesn't have to say why the fight started. you can fill in the blanks yourself.

Yeah, it's ALMOST like they have something in common, doesn't it?



/Neither trolling nor taking the bait.
 
2004-12-12 11:23:55 PM  
why did the movie theater i worked at a few years ago, along with many others, refuse to show "the original kings of comedy" due to security concerns? the world may never know.
 
2004-12-12 11:24:24 PM  
If you would just wait about two more years, you'll be able to meet Ludracris at a nearby bar for any of several dozen "Oldies" stations. You'll probably be able to buy him a beer and get him to sign any crap you want.

Do you think those guys from A Flock of Seagulls get mobbed? Hell, they'll probably re-roof your house if the money's right.
 
2004-12-12 11:24:58 PM  
wow, a whole $300. his generosity knows no bounds.
 
2004-12-12 11:25:52 PM  
I thought the Tiffany reference was related to Tiffany (I think we're alone now) pop star of the eighties.

\\why do i remember such terrible shiat from back then

Have holly Ludacrismas,
It's the best time of the year.
I don't know if it'll come to blows
but have a mug of beer
Have holly Ludacrismas,
And when you walk down the street
Get in a row with friends you know
and everyone you meet

"Ludacris donated $300 in toys to the WZHT Hot 105/Magic 97 13th annual Children of Christmas Campaign and was signing autographs and posing for pictures at the mall's newly opened store Citi Gear.

What a cheapass. I've donated more than that, and I'm a starving student.

Oh ho, the fists will go
flying where you can see;
Somebody waits for you;
Punch her once for me

Understand, the malls in Montgomery are absolute crap. Montgomery mall more so than Eastdale, but still. They're almost as bad as the mall in Selma. Duh sh*t the security was inadequate. Really, the Montgomery Mall is little more than a Vickie's Secret and a Bath&Body Works with a food court on the back.

/has tried shopping at malls in both Selma and the Gump on way to/from school
//shops at Eastchase when in Montgomery

Only a Hundred people. That is ludicras. I've helped host autograph sessions for some Country Music stars and it was something else. 2000 people showed up for Clint Black. Had to turn away half of them. Was doing David Lee Murphy. Was supposed to go from 7pm to 9pm. At about 8pm David looked at the line and told us he was there for the duration. Last autograph was at about 11pm. We had a thousand people for the Possum. (His wife has got to be one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met). So when someone says only a hundred people I kind of laugh. I would have got to go home early for a change.

p.s. I'm not a Country fan. Prefers Jimi & Bobby any day.

An unsafe environment... well duh.

Let's see -- "Macy's would like to invite the Crips and the Bloods to an autograph session for Ludacris's new album..."

OTOH I must credit the man for bringing a little laughter into my life. As I was preparing for a pool competition one Tuesday evening at Willow Billiards I set up to take a shot and heard these lyrics "I wanna li-li-li-lick you from your head to your toes"... I mean, how could anyone not laugh when hearing this segued right into a fairly tame classic rock rotation?
