  1. LOL on Donnie. I guess Diddy can't claim number 1 openings for all of his acts. Uggh, he's no good anyway. I've been watching MTB and I have been completely underwhelmed by Donnie--he's just not smooth AT ALL. Just kind of a Justin Timberfake....

  2. Damn Donnie! I think he's going to be dropped from the label REAL soon

  3. Poor Donnie, I love Pink so so so much!!! good on her
