DA BRAT WHO’S REAL NAME IS SHAWNTAE HARRIS WAS SENTENCED TO 3 YEARS BEHIND BARS, 7 YEARS PROBABTION, 200 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE AND COMPLETION OF SUBSTANCE ABUSE, MENTAL EVALUATION AND ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES.
Harris was at a private Halloween party at Studio 72, a club in Tucker, when she struck then-Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Shayla Stevens, who was working part-time as a hostess.
A police report indicated Harris and Stevens got into a squabble after they bumped into each other. Stevens walked away and moments later was hit in the face with the bottle.

YEAH I SEE ANOTHER GOLD TROPHY IN HER FUTURE BUT THIS TIME IT WILL BE FOR HERÂ MUSIC! THE LA TIMES DID A REVIEW ON JENNIFER’S ALBUM AND I THINK WE HAVE A LEGEND IN THE MAKING! MOVE OVER BEYONCE AND RIHANNA REAL AND RAW TALENT IS COMING THROUGH!
On the occasion of your upcoming recording debut, Jennifer, all I can say is — finally!
Ha ha! There was a lot of material. I recorded over 40 songs. There was a rumor going around that the original album was scrapped, but that was never the case. Some songs on there are among the first we recorded, like “We Gon’ Fight.”
That one is a gospel-flavored number, but with a futuristic beat.
It was produced by Tank [a.k.a. Durrell Babbs]. I’m a huge fan of his, and I thought the song was a great idea. I love the feeling of it. It’s very modern, but it has the elements of R&B.
Several other cuts I heard are classic ballads, and then “Pocketbook” is a high-energy throwdown.
I like the variety and flexibility of my voice [on the album]. I don’t mind stepping outside what I’m used to doing. I grew up in the church, and was always into ballads, but I’m very open to contemporary music.Â I consider my voice a tree with many branches.
Expressing vulnerability is one of your great gifts as a singer, and it’s highlighted here on ballads like “Giving Myself to You,” which reminds me of a classic mid-1980s torch song.
Everybody has a soft side, no matter how tough you may appear. I want to let my listeners in on that side of me. It’s all about emotion. To me, that comes from learning what you’re singing about. You can sing at a song, or you can sing the song. If you know what it’s about, you can really sing the song. Otherwise, you’re just making a noise. That I learned from being in church.
I hear a Whitney Houston influence on that song.
I definitely take that as a huge compliment. Of course, again, it adds more pressure! But I don’t mind it at all.
Well, Clive Davis is Whitney’s mentor too. What was his involvement in your recording sessions?
I have been discovered by the world’s greatest talent expert, but actually, he’s never been in the studio with me. He would send me a song, or I’d go see him at the office. That’s when he gives his input. He’s definitely a hands-on kind of guy.
It can’t have been easy, balancing this intense recording experience with your acting career.
It’s just a love for the art that’s driving me to do them both. I didn’t expect an acting career before a singing career. I’ve never trained as an actor. I never even thought about it. I always wanted to sing.
What are your touring plans?
We’ll start maybe in October. Or January. I’m really looking forward to it — that’s my favorite thing, performing live. My fans want an intimate setting, and it’s all about my fans. So I’m going to make it that way. (Los Angeles Times)

Tubbs Jones, 58, died Wednesday evening of a brain hemorrhage caused by an aneurysm that burst and left her with limited brain function, said Eileen Sheil, a spokeswoman for the Cleveland Clinic, which owns the Huron Hospital in East Cleveland where Tubbs Jones died.
“Throughout the course of the day and into this evening, Congresswoman Tubbs Jones’ medical condition declined,” Sheil said in a statement from the clinic and Tubbs Jones’ family.
The liberal Democrat, first elected in 1998, suffered the hemorrhage while driving her car in Cleveland Heights Tuesday night, said Dr. Gus Kious, president of Huron Hospital. The car went out of control and crossed lanes of traffic before coming to a stop, police said. An officer found the ailing lawmaker.
A brain aneurysm is a bulge in an artery in the brain. It can leak or rupture, causing bleeding in the brain.
Tubbs was the first African American woman elected to Congress from Ohio. (Source: Yahoo News)
