Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm going to keep it short this week because I'm still recuperating from the Tyrese Gibson's MAYHEM! launch party. Tyrese, you are the muthafuckin' man! It was an amazing event filled with celebrities, great people, beautiful women all around and good food and (did I forget to say beautiful women all around?) I kicked it with the MAYHEM! creators Tyrese Gibson, Mike Le, William Wilson and the legendary Mr. Tone Rodriguez at Lucky Strike (LA Live). I even had an opportunity to sit down one on one with my friend, director/executive producer Micheal Bay (Transformers 1 and 2).
I won't lie to you, I was suppose to cover the event, but I was too busy being interviewed by the press and partying. I let you down, Complex readers (blame it on the alcohol), but in my defense, you have not partied until you've hung out with Tila Tequila and ElectrikRed (I just couldn't help myself...could you?). Tyrese, you sure know how to throw a party, my brother!. I can't wait for the Tyrese Gibson's MAYHEM! party at San Diego Comic Con JULY 2009—it's going to be off the chain. Now, readers, although I was slacking because of macking, I still didn't forget you (we're family): I have some wonderful shots from the event for you to check out. Enjoy...
P.S.: Tila, if you're reading this, I'll see you and your "Army" at San Diego Comic Con. Thanks for the goodbye kiss ; )

RELATED RUMOR ALERT!!
There's rumors brewing about a meeting between Avi Arad and Tyrese Gibson at a trendy LA eatery named Cecconis on Monday. Well, here is the PROOF! I just obtained these photos of Mr Gibson and Mr. Arad (an a unidentified guest) leaving the restaurant from www.humormillmag.com. It's assumed the dinner meeting was about Mr. Gibson playing as Luke Cage or Black Panther and there's some rumbling of him being courted to create a comic book for MARVEL. I'm not sure what was exactly said yet, but I will personally contact www.humormill.mag, since they were on the scene and see what I can get for you. If anyone get updates, please post them here. Thank you.
