The whole point is that writing has a pattern and life hasn’t. Life is so untidy. Art is so short and life so long. It is not possible to have perfection in life but it is possible to have perfection in a novel.’- Elizabeth Taylor

R.I.P. Elizabeth Taylor February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011


Elizabeth Taylor passed away at 79 years old of congestive heart failure. She is a mega star to me and always will be one of many inspirational women in this industry. Her life was a little bit “out there” but I believe she led an honest and adventurous life and no one should judge her. She married and re-married many a time and had her self in the scrutiny of public eye because of her celebrity relationships. She was known for her beauty as a model and her character as an actress from her childhood to adult years.  She was an author as well writing children’s books and books about her perceptions in life. The style of jewelry she wore from the pear shaped diamond to the extravagant head pieces made a wave in the fashion circuit. Her fragrance line became the favorite for many  women. She was an outspoken female who stood up for what others were too scared to believe in. Instead of throwing negative perceptions of a legend around people should take the time to learn what she went through and who she really was. She was truly an icon in Hollywood. My next photo shoot will be dedicated to Elizabeth Taylor. We are all human, and Elizabeth Taylor was as real as they come.

First everyone is wondering where Amber Rose was going and who she was meeting with, then they also ask Rosa Acosta who she is there to see. Rosa was wearing a newsprint dress and comes across as very girlie…yet as soon as the doors open these two ladies kiss for the cameras. I think it was a publicity stunt because there was no real emotion in it, or tongue…having watched both Amber and Rosa’s dating habits I say they may have wanted some spotlight back and planned this… what do you think??

Watch that video!

Via “Latin Gossip” Eva Longoria is in a legal mess. Beso, the Las Vegas nightspot she invested in, is bankrupt and now her business partner is suing her for fraud! (this is crazy). He claims that Eva loaned him one million dollars with the expectation that he would pay back over 4 million in two years. He now thinks that isn’t ethical. It is a big return and since things have turned sour, he is now suing her for 4 million dollars himself. (Or maybe he just doesn’t know how to run a business and is attacking her for his losses?) Hmmmm I wonder.

Interview with The Corp Cartel

Written by Leena – Edited by Jackie da Model

Author info for Leena




The trio The Corp Cartel hailing from the Washington Heights section of Manhattan is bringing their funky futuristic sound and style to the streets. Jonathan “Jaywise” Perez 27 , Mark “Tana” Melendez 27 and Alex “Chaos” Dore also 27 make up The Corp Cartel.

They were known individually for their MC skills in their own hoods and when they met they took it to the next level and created a mega group. “Originally The Corporation was the real name of our team and we just took over in every aspect of the way and while doing that we figured we had everything else on lockdown why not take over the music game as well. so with that being said we started a new addition to the
Corporation and shortened the name to The Corp. and added the Cartel due to our take charge attitude.”

The Corp Cartel has won the Latin Hip Hop Artist Award at the New York Underground Music Awards, they have performed at the Tribeca Film Festival and the 10th Annual New York Latino Film Festival presented by HBO.

“We had the inspiration, drive and dedication to take it to the next level and refused to be taken lightly.”

They have been working extremely hard and have a lot to show for it.

In 2005 they released their first mix tape installment entitled Unsigned Heights Vol. 1 with the late DJ Carl Blaze followed by Vol. 2 and in 2008 their single “Do You Want Me,” hit the independent charts.

Within the last few years they have had the opportunity to work with DJ Enuff, the late DJ Carl Blaze, DJ Prostyle, Crowdmover LBoogs and DJ Green Latern . Producers: Rockwilder, Kane Beatz, Michael “Seven” Summers and XV and as well as a few clothing lines such as: Sabit, Lavie, Gifted Elite, Kid Robot, Brian Wood, Dirty Jax and Orisue to name just a few of the ppl they have worked with in the entertainment and fashion world. The grind never stops with The Corp Cartel they continue to give Hip Hop a new sound and look.

This year The Corp Cartel plans to drop the their first album “The Corp Cartel on Deck: The World Series,” where the single “On Deck,” has been a hit.

In between working as a group they will also be working on solo albums. Jaywise currently released his single “Foolish Things,” and the video and song can be found on

The grind never stops with The Corp Cartel they continue to give Hip Hop a new sound and look.

November is Hip Hop History Month and I had the pleasure of attending an official Zulu Nation 37th Anniversary event at The Hip Hop Culture Center at Magic Johnson Theater in Harlem NYC.

My personal VIP invitation came from no other than Supreme Selo and Lord Yoda of Zulu themselves. The event was a peaceful unity among all that believe in what Zulu has to offer and Hip Hop in our society. We were accompanied by all our friends such as Afrika Bambaata, Black Spades, Gustapos, DJ Johnny Juice, Cheesecake RSC, BPS Productions, Straightman, Elijio Rivera “Jinx the tee shirt king”, Ness, Pop Master Fabel, Ice T, Coco Chanel, Beenie Siegel, Big Daddy Kane, Immortal Technique, The Cold Crush Brothers, and so many more.

I got to catch a tag on a soon to be piece of memorabilia from the event..


I made myself useful for a while helping Jinx the Tee Shirt King with his vendor table and convinced a kid to buy the last shirt in a size small.. he changed on the spot proud to rep for the anniversary!

It was packed to the tee with vendors selling Zulu memorabilia, artwork, good food, hip hop gear, drinks etc. I had some rice and peas, mac and cheese and jerk chicken ..and umm a nutcracker SHHHHHHH 😉

I also got some shirts courtesy of Jinx the Tee Shirt King.. it was a great night!

A new liquor by Ice T was on display and came in all different types of bottles or containers shaped like everyday items such as a cane that easily slides open to reveal the drink, or a high heel shaped bottle..DOPENESS!!!!

Performances ensued thru the evening and I have photos to show coming up soon.. let’s just say it was the illest lineup and if you missed it your probably under a rock! I wont get too crazy with details.. but I will say someone made a statement “You wont hear any of that young money-lil wayne or nicki minaj up in here .. this is TRUE HIP HOP!” and I lost it laughing to myself.. there are so many people who idolize Young Money lately and have no idea about Hip Hop History.. I appreciate the old and the new but I LOVE The true!!

So much to write so little time I will be back with an update and edit this post JUST FOR YOU!!

Peace and Blessings .. Jackie da Model aka BABY J! 😉



According to our interview here is a little bit about each individual…you may also google them!

Perdomo now 28 years old, has been a male model for ten years. He began modeling after going to a phat farm casting with a friend and being chosen. It wasn’t planned. He started work with Diddy (Sean Puffy Combs) 6 years ago for Sean Jean Men’s Wear. His First agent was Drew..he moved on to 2 others after that. He is now with Ford Models Agency. YES as you can imagine he has been hit on by both women and men in the industry who tried to intervene with his work! “There are some Flames out there on the low” he said. His favorite shoot was the Louie Vuitton shoot in Dominican Republic because he got to visit his country of heritage plus flew his entire family to go with him. He was paid over 25k, that didn’t include the accommodating flights for himself and family. He does not speak to anyone directly for work, everything must go thru his manager. “Its all politics”-said Perdomo. The young Miguel Perdomo invested his time in Boxing and Basketball, now that he has an image to uphold the boxing had to be put on hold. He loved to fight in the ring or on the streets, but cannot risk any flaws to his face or body given his career. He is now waiting for a decision after a recent shoot for Polo done a lil over a month ago. When asked, he confirmed that he too is always anxious and doesn’t prefer to wait on getting pictures back..he enjoys being able to show them almost immediately (LIKE ME!) lol. In his spare time he works out a lot, and plays basketball when able. He has to control his weight gain and loss periodically so its very important that he attends the gym. He is also a fit-model for Foot Locker Corporate and Sean John. He agrees that most of the people in the industry have day jobs, because we need em!..Taxes are what kills you, and needing health insurance etc.. He and Johnny Medina met in 2008 when Johnny tried to sell him a tee shirt out of his trunk..they spoke about each others talents and then began working together Johnny for his music, Miguel for his Fashion and guidance..they are part of “The Justice League” a personal crew among their peers. Miguel Perdomo is single when asked his reply was “I’m always single”, “Moneys my girl” .. but also said “I am seeing someone, nothing serious yet”.

Johnny Medina has 2 singles out “Sunglasses at Night” and “Novella”. He says “You have to be really cool to wear your sunglasses at night”, Miguel adds “Yea, No white shoes guys” (to the uptown cats. Johnny calls himself “J. McFly” he has been doing music for 10-11 years now. He feels his single Novella was inspired by everyone who lives a “movie” like life, and women are also an influence to the song. Johnny is currently seeing someone..aaawwwww GIMMIE $20! lol.

I Am Pure singer of “Body Talk” single is currently finalizing editing on the music video for the song. The video was directed by Tat Wza of Hot 97 and Druski. When asked how long hes been doing music, he said awhile but he just recently dropped “Body Talk” in June and the feedback was remarkable. Body Talk was the hit that took off for him in his hometown NJ. He kept grinding, and had every NJ DJ playing the song so much that the on air DJs from out of town had no choice but to play his record. “In order to have a club poppin, you gotta play a PURE record”. The opening DJs would get such a crowd reaction that the closers (headliner DJs) asked the openers/hometown DJs about PUREs record personally. Getting the record played in all nightclubs is what lead to the radio play that he has today, the interviews, and the performance bookings. He looks like a rapper but is actually a singer, and loves that image. His inspiration for “Body Talk” record was for “Freedom of Expression” for all people of all types and ages. There is a possible remix in the works.. I predict a female on the track.. but right now we gonna have to say ALLEDGEDLY until he surprises us. PURE states ” People I stood in line for to buy their albums recognize me and have asked to work together, legendary people”-cant drop names on it tho. DJs that opened up for FLEX of HOT97 felt proud when the record was broken on air, as they had it and played it first..they felt as if they “made it” in a way thru the industry. “My people who held me down will get the remix and or next track first” said PURE. His hobbies include basketball, he is very aggressive on the courts and talks smack at 5’6” believe it or not. I challenged him live on air lol. He says Basketball is so NOW.. you have to play offense, defense and just act on it w/o time to stop. Pure is fresh out of a relationship, which he did value and is not looking but doesn’t deny that he would be interested if it came his way. His song was released and had nothing to do with his breakup FYI.

when we chatted about Facebook..the guys all agreed with my idea for a “Punch you in the face” option. Miguel wants a “I hate you” or a “dislike” button.







Jackie Heard What?! August 29th 2010

Christopher Von Uckerman made the recent cover of Para Todos Magazine.

Alejandra Guzman accidentally hit a fan in the eye during her last concert with one of her drumsticks, that fan a young girl has been reported as blind in one eye.
Drake and Nicki Minaj were on Twitter going back and forth about being married!!!..don’t worry it was all a publicity stunt. I don’t see why they need it tho considering they are 2 of the biggest names in the game at the moment..but to each is own!
Toya is allegedly engaged to Memphitz from BET. Lauren London is seeing Trey Songz. and Weezy is still Locked up..I wonder what he thinks about his Baby Momma’s Escapades…
Soulja Boy denies use of cocaine. To sum up that situation.. Kat Stacks allegedly took video of Baby Powder NOT coke, and is being an attention whore. Soulja Boy’s reps say he didn’t do it.. now if they’d only answer about Kat Stacks being pregnant or not?.. hmmm
 Paris Hilton caught with coke in Vegas after recently being caught with Weed at world cup.. and again FREE at last ??..Celebs get away with too much
Tiger Woods ex-wife Elin Nordegren plans on opening a clinic for mental health counseling for the underprivileged families in Florida and I guess for everyone that she feels she can help..considering she was in the nations biggest marital drama (CELEB WISE) she can def give a few pointers right?.. the 65 million settlement comes in handy..

“Jackie Heard What!?”

Some industry Gossip and News!

by Jackie da Model

In the latest lawsuits for “Its not yours its mine!” debates, and temper tantrums from hollywood:

Hip-hop star Pharrell Williams is battling an Italian fashion firm over his Ice Cream clothing line. He’s suing the Gilmar Group for blocking a trademark application on his brand name on grounds that it’s too similar to Gilmar’s Ice and Iceberg labels. The acclaimed music producer claims that adding the word “cream” — street slang for money — “creates a vastly different sound, appearance, meaning and overall commercial impression.” (AP)

Madonna and daughter Lourdes are being sued for her new “Material Girl” fashion line for teenagers by a California clothing company that says it has been using the name since 1997. They don’t want Madonna selling in same retail outlets nor at similar prices they wined about it not being fair! They told the judge they want her to fork over all teh profits asap! (Can you believe that..WTH!) Madonna teamed up with 13-year-old daughter Lourdes to design the 1980s-inspired line, which came from the pop star’s punk-girl style when she rose to fame and recorded the 1985 hit “Material Girl.” If anyone should have the name branded I think she should, hey Madonna.. just buy them out boo!

Taylor Lautner The “Twilight” teen actor is claiming “emotional distress,” fraud and “annoyance” after a $300,000 trailer he ordered to use while shooting a new movie failed to arrive on time. Lautner, 18, is seeking unspecified damages for the no-show vehicle, which was reportedly promised to him by June 21. Apparently, the trailer wasn’t “tricked out” to Lautner’s liking nor was it delivered on time. The RV was to be used while the actor filmed the movie “Abduction,” which co-stars Sigourney Weaver and Alfred Molina. (VIA AP)

CMON!!!!! This kid has more money than any 18 year old I know, is he really serious?… If I sued people every time they annoyed me I would be labeled Jackie the B*tch! I am envisioning a bunch of people attempting lawsuits over losing a game of checkers, hearing a baby crying or dog barking from neighbors house, and or having to work with an ugly co worker typical ANNOYANCE! HA..good luck sharkboy aka werewolf..
Celeb Suicide Attempts/Scares back to back!! :
Fantasia Barrino attempted suicide and said it was NOT an accident, after trying to overdose herself on August 9th with a bottle of aspirin she stated: “I was tired of people doing me wrong, constantly, over and over again, dealing with my family — my father, dealing with men and their [expletive] — I was tired,” she said. “My head was hurting me. I was over it.”

Timbaland scared the hell out of his family and fans! He text a family member while he was driving and said he was by a cliff and “tired of the stress”. He later called up Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and said he was not suicidal….wheeewwwwwww… stick around Tim we need you here in the music world!


Kimora Lee Simmons

Just days after Kimora released a statement saying she was moving on from Baby Phat, new reports have surfaced saying she was actually FIRED! Kimora Lee Simmons was “unceremoniously dumped” from Baby Phat, sources close to the ex-model said of her abrupt exit from the clothing company she founded with ex-husband Russell Simmons. Sources said Simmons is mulling a possible lawsuit against owner Kellwood. “She was blindsided that Kellwood fired everyone,” said one. But another Baby Phat insider it could have been a way to slash costs: “Kimora was going over-budget. She’d pay herself a fee to be in the ads, plus she paid her children fees to appear in ads. It costs thousands of dollars to airbrush her because she’s a size 10. Plus, they spent a ton of money on body doubles. They would shoot another model in the clothes, and take Kimora’s head and put in on her body.” Kellwood had no comment.
(written article via AP)

My take on this?.. She chose to leave because she knew there was trouble ahead you cant blame her, whether she was alledgedly fired or quit it was for the best because there are obviously some issues behind the scenes at that company. As for her children and herself.. they modeled for Baby Phat case closed. Whether pictures were shopped up to perfection or not they were still considered employees / models. I dont think anyone works for free, I believe that term is called VOLUNTEER work! So off to better endeavors! Go Kimora.. show us what you can do and gain americas hearts again.

Heidi Montag: Old news but reader worthy the famous Nip & Tuck Surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan passed away Aug 18th while tweeting and driving. He would have been the one his client Heidi Montag would run to for this new plan! She stated yesterday how she wished she hadn’t done so many surgeries. She said that her surgeries are part of what ruined her and Spencer Pratt’s marriage because he always had to take care of her and aside from that she looked horrible after going under the knife so much. She wants a breast reduction at this time and is considering going down to a semi normal size to balance out her body, after all big breasts come with drama! (I SHOULD KNOW)..back pain, oggling, custom clothes etc.. “My Boobs are crushing me” she told Life & Style. This woman went thru over 10 hours of surgery for perfection, and almost died from a Demerol OD during recovery. Demerol=Meperidine is used to relieve moderate to severe pain, it is in a class of medications called narcotic analgesics. A group of pain medications similar to morphine. At this time she doesn’t want to be in the lime light as a celebrity she said shed like to just “get out of Hollywood” and that she really doesn’t have any friends or family back home, its time for this chic to go on hiatus.. She also said she wont get anything done again, at least not for a long time.

Nicki Minaj: being compared to Lauren Hill (as a female emcee that sings and raps), Lil Kim and Foxy Brown (attitude, wigs, lyrical genre and carribean twists).. Who’s next?.. I think she has a little bit of every influence but at the end of the day she is Nicki Minaj and she is on the rise so let the girl rock!

Miss Universe / Jimena Navarrete: You can look but you can’t touch! She has a man so back up!!!! What did you think a strong, smart Latina like her wouldn’t be snatched up!? Think again fellas 🙂
Shakira: Is on thin ice for being a latin diva in the streets of Barcelona, she rode a motocycle without a helmet, danced in a public fountain and disrupted traffic while filming for her new video.
