How Metta World Peace’s Daughter, Diamond, Inspires Me

FIRST LISTEN HERE: Diamond Artest – “Fighter” [KHANversations.com Exclusive] I’d never been inspired by an eight-year-old until I got an email from Metta World Peace (yes, the basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest.) Sure, I had been inspired by the tweenage Justin Bieber when watching “Never Say Never” – but never someone under the age of …

Keri Hilson…Don’t Hate Her Cause She’s Beautiful

I interview a lot of people. Famous people, in fact (which, I’m assuming you know, since well…you’re reading this blog.) And…I don’t get star struck. But every once in a while, I can become a little…“fan-like.” This usually happens whenever the person is from the 90’s, or related to music or basketball. Why? Because I …

Do You Remember….My Night w/Jay Sean?

OK so let’s cut the BS. You know it, I know it, we all know it. I just haven’t well, addressed “it.” I’m brown. South Asian. From the Indian “subcontinent.” Rather, my parents are from there. Mom raised in Pakistan, dad raised in India. One arranged marriage and 30-something years later, their 24-year-old daughter is …

“Crash” Course on Jocko Sims

Yes… it’s another tweet about…ME. First it was Rob Thomas, and next? One of the stars of “Crash” on Starz Channel, Jocko Sims. Jocko plays Anthony Adams aka Panic, Dennis Hopper’s right hand man in the show. There, he plays an aspiring hip hop artist. What’s kinda cool? Reality sort of imitates art. In fact, …

IS This It?? One Step Closer to Michael Jackson.

Alex Al… never heard of him? Well even if you haven’t, he has a pretty cool name, so that warrants a blog entry in itself. But no in all seriousness, you may not know him, but if you’re one of the thousands that have checked out MJ’s concert movie, “This is It,” you’ve at least …

I got 99 Problems…But Getting into a Party Isn’t One. Jay-Z/Eminem Private Concert.

Jay-Z. Eminem. Together…on the same stage. Yes, it happened weeks ago, but I’ve been on blogging hiatus and instead of recapping older events and going chronologically, I’d rather talk about the most exciting one. June 1st. 2009. So basically it’s the launch of “DJ Hero,” a new videogame like Guitar Hero…well, without the guitars. DJ …

It’s 3am, I Must be Lonely… Or, Hanging with Rob Thomas.

Hanging out at the Raffles L’Ermitage – this swanky suite in Bev Hills. Meet Rob Thomas, we sit down, what do we do? Immediately tweet. Yes. Tweet. Of course I @reply-him, and his response? He twitters about me. This is kind of a big deal. I think this is the moment where Twitter officially beats …

Cranking…Kissing Through Phones…Swag… Just another Day with Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em

As mentioned elsewhere, I covered Wango Tango 2009.  I also mentioned a “fiasco” that occurred at this event.  Cliffs notes version? I had fabulous interviews with some of music’s biggest names… and then, the tapes went missing. But as the cliche saying goes, memory lives in the heart (not on digibeta tapes.) So now I’ll …
