Eric Holder

Eric Holder

President-elect Barack Obama has his sights set on Washington attorney Eric Holder to serve as his attorney general. According to the Associated Press, Obama’s transition aides have gone so far as to ask senators whether he would be confirmed. Holder, a former U.S. attorney who served as the No. 2 official in the Justice Department under President Bill Clinton, would be the nation’s first black attorney general. Also a former judge and U.S. attorney in Washington, Holder is widely respected in legal circles and among Justice Department career lawyers. He has been on Obama’s short list to be attorney general since before the election, and already has had private conversations about how he would run the department. A potential snag in Holder’s confirmation would be his involvement in the 2001 pardon of fugitive Marc Rich by Clinton at the end of his presidency. Rich was a wealthy commodities dealer who had spent years running from tax charges. Holder said he was “neutral, leaning toward favorable” on the pardon. Clinton later cited that as among the factors that persuaded him to issue the pardon. Among Holder’s fans is Rev. Al Sharpton, who issued a statement Tuesday praising Obama’s attorney general choice as “a great step toward bringing responsible change to this country at this juncture in history.” “When he served as deputy attorney general we worked with him on his review of the Amadou Diallo police shooting case in New York and other civil rights cases down through the years,” said Sharpton. “He has been balanced in his support of law enforcement as well as his support for accountability of law enforcement. I think that his appointment is one that both the law enforcement and the civil rights community can exhale and says that someone that is fair and open will take the top law enforcement seat in Washington.”




Prince and his music publisher Universal are being sued for breach-of-contract by the makers of his 3121 fragrance for failing to help market the product as both parties had agreed, reports the Associated Press. In the lawsuit, filed Monday in New York, Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics Inc. claims it spent $2.5 million on the product and agreed to pay Universal half of profits made from sales of the perfume. According to the company, Universal and Prince have not participated in promotions since the fragrance was launched in July 2007. Universal spokesman Peter LoFrumento calls the claims “completely without merit.” In other Prince news, Monday’s “Late Show with David Letterman” featured Prince tribute band Purple Reign performing “Let’s Go Crazy,” marking the first time the show has ever invited a cover band to play.



Snoop Country

Snoop Country

Snoop Dogg finally got his wish to be a guest of Martha Stewart on her daytime talk show. Ever since the two met backstage at the “Late Show with David Letterman,” Snoop has been e-mailing her regularly about getting a spot on the program. On Tuesday afternoon, Stewart got a kick out of reading some of those correspondences, which were laced with his particular gangsta slang. While helping to prepare mashed potatoes using a recipe from Stewart’s mom, Mrs. Kostyra, Snoop shared with the host his five essential vocabulary words to get through life, which included ‘fo-shizzle’ and ‘crack-a-lackin.’ He also admitted that “in the hood” he doesn’t make mashed potatoes with an electric mixer… or know how to peel potatoes.




The newly-reunited Labelle – Sarah Dash, Nona Hendryx and Patti LaBelle – will kick off their first national tour since 1977 at Harlem’s Apollo Theater in support of their new album “Back to Now.” The Apollo gig is on Dec. 19 and is followed by stops in Chicago, Atlantic City, Detroit, Los Angeles, Oakland, Washington D.C. and Atlanta. The Los Angeles Times last month called Labelle “a phenomenon whose music helped change the very idea of what pop and the artists who made it — especially women singers previously confined to ‘girl groups’ — could be.”
Billboard says it’s the combination of “LaBelle’s soaring sass, Hendryx’s rock-edged stance and Dash’s earthy accents” that make for a unique and electrifying combination not to be missed.

Below are Labelle’s “Back to Now” tour dates:

Fri, Dec. 19 – New York, NY at The Apollo Theater
Sat, Jan. 10 – Chicago, IL at Chicago Theatre
Sat, Jan. 17 – Atlantic City, NJ at Taj Mahal
Sun, Jan. 18 – Detroit, MI at The Fox Theatre
Thurs, Jan. 29 Los Angeles, CA at Nokia Theatre
Fri, Jan. 30 – Oakland, CA at Paramount Theatre
Fri, Feb. 13 – Washington, DC at Constitution Hall
Sat, Feb. 14 – Atlanta, GA at the Civic Center
