Show Me What You Got 'Lil Mama

My apologies for the re-cap of the Jay-Z concert but I was having difficulty uploading images this week. And how could I possibly tell this story without photos?

Now, friends, I want you to keep in mind that these photographs were taken with my iPhone which has no zoom we were just THAT close. One of my favorite parts about this whole experience is getting the tickets, not looking at where we are seated and then getting into the show and having the usher say, "keep going, yep, all the way down." Well where we were seated for this show, we had to get WRISTBANDS. Oh yeah, so official. Maybe that was because we were seated next to RUN'S HOUSE! Seriously, Rev Run and his girls (no Russy, unfortunately) were right next to his. In fact, his giganto security guard was sitting on my $22 Forever 21 dress for 30 seconds before I offered to move over. Floyd Mayweather was seated in front of us and his posse never even got on their feet once for this high energy show.

The couple seated in front of us (next to Jermaine Jackson) were asking us who we were there to see (to give credit, Mary J put on an amazing show as well. That girl puts so much into her performances, I swear I saw a tear run down her face during No More Drama) So yeah, I told them "Jay-Z" and she was like "Really girl?" and after going on and on about how much I love him I realized that could be kind of surprising, just based on appearances and all. See, that is why we should never judge a book by it's cover, kids. Even the whitest white girl around still loves to throw her roc sign in the air.

Enough about all that though....let's get to the goods, shall we? Highlight of the show? Um probably when he Jigga man rapped directly to me during 'Show Me What You Got'. He also taught Jenner how to two-step, speaking directly to us while on stage. I would imagine this is because we tend to stand out like a sore thumb. I'm sure Jay was like "Who the hell are these excited white kids dancing like fools next to Rev Run?" We were for sure, the most hyped out of anyone there.

For those of you that follow the gossip rags like myself, there was no ring on Hov's finger but I do believe he and B have tied the knot.

It was an unbelievable experience. That man is larger than life and yes, PY, his lips really ARE that big in person.

Knochers for Knockers Returns

Some of you may know that I joined in on The Race for the Cure last year and it turned out to be a Saturday morning well spent and an inspiring experience that I will carry in my heart for a lifetime.

I am on TEAM SK+G for SGK again this year and we would love for you to join our team in the fight against breast cancer.
Check out our site at
Or my personal page is

Get this....I am even going to RUN it this year. That's worth at least $5 to see.

One in every 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The money raised through the Race will fund vital education, screening and treatment programs for underserved women and men in our own community affected by this disease and will also support the national search for a cure.
Please join me in Knochers for Knockers either by racing or pledging in support of my participation.
Love you all.
And we all love boobies.

Top 3 Pop Culture Moments of My Life

Let's do it countdown style...

3. Jack and Kate: Congratulating Matthew Fox on his Golden Globe nomination for LOST at The Art Bar.

Story: I was at the Hard Rock one night with Nicole (yes, I realize this could have been any night from 2002-2005) and I checked my cell to find 21 missed calls from Linzi Gizzle. Desperate to get a hold of me to tell me that Matthew Fox of my favorite-show-ever LOST was at The Art Bar watching some weird goth-hippy band BY HIMSELF. I immediately left the Hard Rock and drove to The Art Bar. Now for those of you who do not know, The Art Bar is the epitome of dive bars. But yeah, in that cool way. So I get there and there he is. Smoking cigarettes in the corner, sipping on a Miller Lite. It took everything I had not to yell "JACK!" or ask him 'Where's Walt?' (this was right after season one ended for you fellow Lost fans.) Instead, I watched (like a stalker) from afar and waited until he was in the middle of a conversation with the lead singer to awkwardly approach him and stand there until they were done. I then apologized (I'm so polite) and told him what a huge fan I was of the show and congratulated him on the shows Golden Globe nomination. I did not ask take a photo (IDIOT!) and do not remember if we touched or not. I would like to think we did.

2. Katie: Justin! Justin Timberlake: Hi.

Story: Justin Timberlake is who I listen to when I am getting a root canal. That is how much this man soothes my soul. The date: February 14, 2005. Location: The Hard Rock (Surprised?) Nicole and I were meeting Brandon to do a little booty-shaking at Body English. When we arrived, Brandon was talking to some dude and Brandon said "Bro, you gotta tell my girl who you were just playing blackjack with..." Dude goes, "Uh, Justin Timberlake?" WHAT?!? WHERE?!?? Dude,"Over there." I dash to the high roller tables and my jaw drops. There, sitting 15 feet from me was JT. In the flesh. Now this is before Hard Rock got all gay on me and put up glass around the high-roller room (probably to stop girls like me from doing stuff like this...) After standing there for not nearly long enough (30 minutes or so), we go inside Body English. I made a promise to myself that if he was still there when I came out of da club, I would have to say something. Sure enough, 2.5 hours later, Justin was still playing. There was something different at this hour though, he must've lost a couple grand because he was. not. happy. He was pacing back and fourth and I eventually yelled "Justin!", you know like we were old friends and I had just run into him in Vegas. He turned and said "Hi." Justin Timberlake was my Valentine. 2005.

1. Kanye and Katie at The 2007 VMA's

Story: Through a website called, I scored tickets to a private VMA party hosted by Kanye West. Jenner and I headed to The Palms on Friday, September 7th and were escorted up to The Bowling Suite in the Fantasy Tower with about 50 other MTV kids. There they provided us with free alcohol and snacks (I LOVE SNACKS) Around 10 p.m. or so, after standing in the room for 3 hours, they led us up to The Hugh Hefner Sky Villa. This place was amazing. Outside, on the top of the Fantasy Tower, they had a runway set up where my moment would later take place. Cameras, more alcohol and Stronger glasses told me we were in for quite the experience. Kanye's Graduation album was supposed to be released the following week but I had gotten my hands on a leaked copy so I knew all the words to his new songs. He came down the stairs starting with 'Touch the Sky' and man, did I lose it. I'm sure he was wondering what this little white girl was doing shaking her thing and singing along to his unreleased tunes but HE LOVED IT. When Stronger came on, we all put on the glasses and my first appearance on the VMA's happened Time: 3 minutes, 39 seconds then Jenner and I make an appearance again at about 2 minutes, 20 seconds. The energy was something like I'd never experienced before, that man has a way of hyping up a crowd that is UNREAL (although I'm sure the alcohol helped a bit as well.) That could've been it. But it wasn't. Picture this: Outside, 80 degrees, a little tipsy, on top of the Fantasy Tower at the Palms in Las Vegas...'The Good Life'? There couldn't have been a better song for a better moment. Time: 37 seconds. Synchronized dance moves? You betcha.

And that. that moment. Topped it all.
