Morning Coffee 8.22.08

OMG! First a live performance- albeit I was not present but I can learn to forgive- and now Maxwell has announced his first US tour in six years. You can bet Steely D will be there for his Radio City performance on October 9. Heart. Full dates after the jump.

When following your instincts go wrong: A South African man who FED HIS CO-WORKER TO A LION is being released from jail after three years and must serve probation. You know you’ve thought about doing this- don’t lie! [BBC]

THE GOSS: MissInfo scanned a few pages of Faith’s new autobiography, Keep The Faith, that deals with that pesky rumored infidelity with Tupac. Read for yourself here, there, here again and one more time– quickly before someone shuts the links down. Lol at Faith fretting about being judged by Whitney Houston- THAT’S rich. [YBF]

Republican President hopeful McCain slipped up and mentioned that he owns about seven houses. Only problem is he’s trying to relate to the common man, you know, the one who’s suffering foreclosures left and right? hm…[CSM]

I love when NYMag shows off the coming fashion season’s spoils. Here you go with pics of shoes, shoes and more shoes! [NYMag]

This Maxwell news is better than hearing that John Legend is opening the DNC on Monday. Hotness! I’m so excited I don’t know what to do!!! **cues up “Urban Hang Suite”**- Happy Friday!
