Timbaland tells People magazine what's up

Along with all the artists we mentioned in the previous post, Timbaland also performed with Missy Elliott wearing a black sweat shirt with "Ching A Ling" spelled out in gold letters on the front. Missy led the crowd in a happy birthday song to Tim, who's real birthday isn't until March. The former frontman of Soundgarden and Audioslave, Chris Cornell also performed at the event. As it was first reported in Scratch Mag, Timbaland produced Cornell's new solo album saying it was the best work he had ever done.

Well it seems, and as always I say seems because the press LOVES to spin these stories out of control simply to get readers, Tim's entire entourage wasn't let in to his own party so Timbo got on stage and let People Magazine know what was on his mind. "Next time I have one of my homeboys in line, let that (expletive) in!" "I don't like to see my people turned around for some (expletive) magazine ... (expletive) y'all!" adding that he was a "people person." This was close of the party as people started to wrap it up.

Apparently Tim had been frustrated with security issues as well as production mishaps and didn't mean to lash out at the magazine. People Mag's representatives apparently were confused by the tirade since they thought the night was a complete success. Plus, (and this is my favorite part of this "story" being run by the Associated Press) Right before Tim went on his rant, he threatened to outdo Kanye West's rants.

Come on now? This is really the story that the AP is running that media outlets have been reporting since yesterday? As we've proven more than once here on The Chronicles don't believe everything you read. In today's day and age of controversy and an insatiable desire to bring those at top crumbling down, read this story with a huge grain of salt.
