    If anyone cares to know the real story of Aaliyah, watch the BET tribute tonight with Jomo Hankerson. Aaliyah’s cousin and creative collaborator. He knew her before anyone else in the music industry. From being his little cousin to a super-star. He hooked her up with Timbaland and Missy. Helped her choose movie roles & more. Im looking forward to watching it.

    I like this new trend for writing caoiersntvons in a Welsh accent. At least I assume it’s a Welsh accent, you could have been having your hair cut by a pirate.
