Bow Wow speaks out on mixed heritage and Kanye West speaks out on streaming service feud

Bow Wow says because of his mixed heritage, he's not able to actively understand the civil rights movement. But you do have some black in you correct? I think his ignorant answer to something a fan asked him was just his way of copping out and making himself sound even stupider. Bow Wow is an idiot! Point blank period! End of story. Kanye West recently spoke out on his Twitter account in regards to the ongoing beef between streaming music giants Tidal and Apple Music. Kanye feels Apple should just buy Tidal and in his words, "give the kids what they want". He says their feud is hurting the music industry and not helping it. What do you think? I think the whole making certain albums exclusive to one streaming service hurts not only the label but the artist. Even though in time most exclusive albums find their way onto the competing streaming service overtime. If I were an artist, my music would be available wherever music was sold and in every format. Music shouldn't…

Mariah Carey speaks on divorce and Phaeda Parks of "RHOA" threatened by madman with a bomb

Mariah Carey is on the latest issue of Complex magazine and in it, she opens up about her new relationship and her divorce from Nick Cannon. When asked about her divorce, Carey expresses disappointment in the relationship citing that she didn't want to get married, have kids, and divorce. She felt that she went down that road before with ex-husband, Tommy Mottola. As far as her impending engagement, Mariah says she will be walking down the aisle again sooner than we think. In reality TV news, Phaedra Parks of "RHOA"(Real Housewives of Atlanta) found her law office evaded by a madman with a bomb strapped to his leg in search of her. Apparently the man in question, who some believe may be 90s rapper, Drama was looking for Phaedra because he was upset with her. No one knows the true reason of his upset but of course social media has had a field day with the unfortunate event making various jokes. Me personally, when I first read of the story, I figured her current husband …

Mary J. Blige files for divorce and Kanye West takes jab at Taylor Swift

Amid rumors of infidelity in her marriage, its being reported that Monica is pregnant. The reports haven't been confirmed as of yet but we will have to wait and see just how true this is. If so, congrats to Monica and her family. Drake performed in Chicago last night and brought out Chicago's own Kanye West who took a dig at Taylor Swift. The outspoken rapper thanked his wife, Kim Kardashian for having Snapchat. If you recall Snapchat was where the phone call between Kanye and Taylor Swift was shown. And shocking news today involving Mary J. Blige! She is reportedly filing for divorce from her husband after 13 years of marriage. There had been reports of trouble in paradise in the past but this story is everywhere. Mary J.'s husband is also her manager. VH1 continues to make BET look like crap with yet another Black-themed show titled, "Hip Hop Squares". The show is take on the classic game show, "Hollywood Squares". The show is being executive produce…

Trina previews Tory Lanez collab and Dr. Dre spotted in handcuffs

Trina revealed through her social media today that she is in the studio with Tory Lanez. Based on the brief snippet, the song sounds nice and could be a potential single. Trina previously collaborated with Tory Lanez on "F Love" prior to Lanez blowing up. The song was really good and severely underrated. The song didn't garner the attention it deserved but its a little harder to push through the channels when your an independent artist. Speaking of Trina, I'm wondering what the hold up is on her sixth album. She needs to release it already! Dr. Dre was spotted in handcuffs after a man called the police citing that Dr. Dre was seen brandishing a gun. Dr. Dre was not arrested. A man has been arrested for touching Justin Timberlake in the face at a golf game. Justin breezed past the man and the man rubbed his hand against Justin's face. It was a bizarre act but maybe the man was fanning out! Who knows!

Method Man leaves social media and Marsha Ambrosius is pregnant

Congrats to Remy Ma and Fat Joe as their single, "All The Way Up" was just certified Platinum. Bryson Tiller's "Exchange" was also certified Platinum. Congrats to all these acts! Method Man has quit social media after a rare picture of his wife went viral. Method Man asked the blogger to remove the picture but they refused so Method Man decided to leave social media. Marsha Ambrosius of Floetry fame revealed that she was pregnant awhile back and she's recently put up videos as her boyfriend sings to their bundle of joy. Joseline Hernandez of "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" is also pregnant and its a question as to who the daddy may be. Joseline has stated that the baby is her estranged boyfriend Stevie J. but he insists otherwise. Young Dro, who Joseline collaborated with and had been hanging out with is another candidate to who the father may be. Keshia Knight Pulliam of "The Cosby Show" is pregnant and got married to reality TV star and …

Lil' Kim accused of being shady towards "Power" star and Joe Budden chases down fans in the streets

Naturi Naughton of "Power" fame, who also portrayed Lil' Kim in "Notorious" is still feeling the heat from Lil' Kim years after the movie debuted. It's been no secret that Kim wasn't happy with Naughton's portrayal of her in "Notorious". Then again when is anyone ever happy about how their portrayed in a biopic? I can understand Lil' Kim's reasoning but Naughton has finally shot back after years of being dogged by Kim. Apparently it was being reported that Kim was being shady toward Naughton during the VH1 "Hip Hop Honors" after party. Naughton said during a late night VH1 show that she doesn't have any beef with Kim. So what do guys think? Is Lil' Kim taking things too far? In other music news, Joe Budden is in the news again for all the wrong reasons. The rapper was seen on social media chasing down fans who approached him on foot and in a car. The gesture has influenced numerous memes. A new couple alert h…

Rihanna to guest star on "Bates Motel" and The Game speaks on infamous dick print pics

Rihanna will be starring in the last season of "Bates Motel" as Marion Crane. If your familiar with the character of Marion Crane, she is the guest at the Bates Motel on the run after taking off with a boatload of money. She meets Norman Bates who speaks of his ill mother. It's Marion Crane who suggests she be put in an asylum much to the dismay of Norman Bates. Of course this all from the movie "Psycho" which Bates Motel is based on. Are you ready to see RiRi on your TV? Speaking of TV, The Game was the guest last night on "The Amber Rose Show" where he admitted that he's slept with some of those who has sent him messages in his DM(Direct Message) on Instagram. This is in response to Amber asking Game about his infamous dick print pictures. He says the pictures are not photo shopped and if you want to see, come over! Ha! So there you have it peeps! Game's dick print pictures are real! Speaking of dick(I do apologize to some of my readers for…

Drake disses Joe Budden & Tory Lanez and Brandy gets blasted by label

Drake opened up his Summer Sixteen tour in Dallas by taking some shots at his adversaries; Joe Budden, Tyga, and Tory Lanez. Drake jokingly informed concert goers that he should of brought Joe Budden out to perform "Pump It Up". Drake also made a reference to the many artists(Tyga and Tory Lanez) that remade or ripped off his song, "Controlla". To say Drake's concert was interesting is an understatement. Personally I don't think Drake should waste his time on Joe Budden or even Meek Mill for that matter but that's just me. Brandy's record label, Chamelon Entertainment(or I think its a production company) she's with that helped her land a record deal with RCA has blasted her! After Brandy publicly complained about her label likening their business practices to slavery the label shot back saying they were reluctant to sign Brandy being that she hasn't had a hit record since the 2000's. Ouch! VH1's new season of "Basketball Wives&…

Monica speaks out husband's alleged affair and feud ignites between Waka Flocka and The Game

So yesterday I reported a story regarding Monica and her husband Shannon Brown. Well the blog that originally reported the story did a retraction today. It turns out the woman that sold the story with dick pics, baby pics, and text messages was lying all along. It's said that the woman in question is a psycho bitch to put it nice and plainly! The blog says they did all their homework before they went full blast with the story but turns out it wasn't true. Twitter was on fire this morning as news spread about the alleged affair between this mystery woman and Shannon Brown. Monica finally spoke out and apologized to the family of the baby pics that were used saying no child deserves to be placed in this mess or lie for that matter. A beef is heating up between rappers The Game and Waka Flocka. I was just scrolling down my feed on Instagram when I saw a video from Waka Flocka dissing an unnamed rapper(s) saying one minute their a garbage man, the next a shoe salesman! haha then …

Monica's husband caught in another cheating scandal and Kanye & Kim escape lawsuit

Monica's husband, Shannon Brown is said to be caught in yet another cheating scandal. A woman claims that her and Brown share a 2 year old child. The woman has released pictures, text messages, etc. The proof is all there. You know what they say about athletes though, their known to cheat! More as this story unfolds. In the continuing saga that is The West's vs. Taylor Swift, The West's are exempt from a lawsuit. According to California law, it is not against the law the record a phone conversation unless it was said to be private. Taylor knew she was on speakerphone with Kanye cause producer Rick Rubin chimed in the conversation between Kanye and Taylor. I think its ridiculous that Taylor even considered filing a lawsuit. I personally think that is a bitch move in this type of situation. I think it only intensified her wishes to file a lawsuit because she got such a backlash on Twitter. Taylor Swift should be lucky John Mayer, Harry Styles, Calvin Harris, or the other 18…

Kelly Price under fire for "inappropriate" performance and Young Thug blasts his baby mother

What's wrong with these folks or should I say celebrities? Kelly Price has everyone talking after a performance at a Gospel Expo was deemed "inappropriate". The singer performed her hit song, "As We Lay" which is a song that was also performed by Shirley Murdock back in the day. Kelly posted a video via social media stating that she was upset and that she was asked to perform her music. Why she didn't perform one of her gospel numbers is beyond me. But after seeing Kelly on "R&B Divas" we know she is quite the diva and performing "As We Lay" is an odd choice of a song to perform at a Gospel expo. Kelly went on to say in the video that the church is filled with "bigotry" and that's why people don't attend church. If I were Kelly I'd be somewhat embarrassed at the mishap but then again she chose to sing that selection. I'm wondering did she do that to purposely get attention cause you have to know that singin…

Kim Kardashian-West blasts Taylor Swift over Kanye West song and Drake sets new record

The big news story today is the he said, she said story between Kanye West and Taylor Swift. If you recall, Kanye West shouted out Taylor Swift on his song, "Famous" which also features a controversial video. Taylor went on to say that she wasn't made aware that Kanye was name dropping her in the song but he denied her claims. Well low and behold Kim Kardashian West leaked out the video of Kanye on the phone with Taylor discussing the song's lyrics. So egg on Taylor's face! Twitter was literally on fire last night with multiple memes and overall reaction. Everyone including celebrities have chimed in including Selena Gomez(bitch!), Khloe Kardashian, and Zendaya Coleman! So whose side are you on The West's or Taylor? Taylor Swift's ex Calvin Harris has is now said to be dating Tinashe who just released her new song, "Superlove". Calvin checked Taylor a few days ago saying he wants no involvement with her any further and basically he doesn't …

Joe Budden disses Drake in new song and Tamar Braxton denies divorce rumors

Joe Budden has responded to Drake after Drake dissed him on French Montana's new single, "No Shopping". I haven't heard either song and could really care less but this whole feud is picking up stream. It all started last week or so when Joe Budden released a few dis tracks aimed at Drake. Joe Budden's "Afraid" song has been a hot topic as the song was trending on Twitter upon its release. Tamar Braxton has squashed reports that she and husband, Vincent Herbert are divorcing. The two appeared on social media all boo'd up which put an end to those reports. In reality TV news, former "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Erica Dixon has been going back and forth with Tammy Rivera over how they used to be friends or some jargon. Erica looks and sounds ridiculous right now! Your not even on the show anymore. Why do you care? I hear she's been trying to get back on the show though. Maybe she'll get her wish next season but I can do without …

Rihanna cancels tour and Tamar Braxton headed for a divorce

Rihanna has cancelled her tour in France after the attack in France. She also cancelled her performance at Lollapalooza[sp] after concern for the Zika virus. Tamar Braxton and her husband, Vince Herbert may be headed for divorce according to reports. Apparently Tamar was said to have stepped out on the marriage but there had also been rumblings that Vince also stepped out on the marriage. I'm not sure what is true at this point but stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Lil' Kim in the studio with DeJ Loaf and is Nick Cannon dating Chili from TLC?

Fresh off her performance at the VH1 "Hip Hop Honors", DeJ Loaf who paid tribute to Lil' Kim is now in the studio with the Queen Bee. The two posed in a picture that made the rounds today via social media. So there are a few questions I'm curious to know. When will we hear this collaboration, that's one and whose album will it be featured on? I know DeJ Loaf said she was working on her first album and who knows if Kim will drop an album any time soon. We can however expect Lil' Kim to drop a song or a mixtape but what about an album? I believe that's what the fans really want but for now they'll take Kim however they can. In other music news, Nick Cannon is reportedly dating Chili from TLC. When asked about it, Nick told ET(Entertainment Tonight) to "ask her"(Chili). I'm not sure if Chili has been available for comment since she's typically touring with T-Boz. We see Nick Cannon a lot more since he hosts like 20 different shows so h…

Beyoncé nominated for Emmy awards and Christina Milian upsets fans

Beyoncé has been nominated for 4 Emmy awards for her "Lemonade" movie which premiered back in April. Congrats to her! People are mad at Christina Milian for not coming to the defense of Blacks when she tweeted #alllivesmatter Now many were upset because in the past Christina has dated Black men and after all she is of mixed heritage. She later apologized for the oops and tweeted #blacklivesmatter Now was that so hard Ms. Milian? J-Lo suffered the same criticism when she tweeted #alllivesmatter and not #blacklivesmatter namely because she's dated Black men and mixed heritage men in the past and currently. J-Lo later deleted her tweet.

Foxy Brown, Angie Stone blast VH1 and Lil' Kim signs on for "Celebrity Big Brother"

Foxy Brown is mad at VH1 for leaving her out of the "Hip Hop Honors" tribute that aired Monday. She went on to include how Lauryn Hill was also left out. In VH1's defense they did have a picture of Foxy Brown up in the background during the finale performance. Foxy promised her fans once again that she has new music and plans to return. She's been saying that for years so I'll believe it when I see it. I do feel like Foxy should of been honored though but maybe next year would of been her year. But she might of cost herself a shot now since she's blasted VH1. Angie Stone was also upset at VH1 because she felt that the misrepresented her group, Sequence. Sequence was one of the first female rap group and VH1 made many believe that Salt-N-Pepa were just that. VH1 featured a picture of Sequence as well in the background during the finale performance. I think most people know of Sequence but a lot of people don't know who they are. I don't think we can r…

VH1 Hip Hop Honors recap and Ciara's son calls stepdaddy "Papa" in video

Last night's VH1's "Hip Hop Honors" went down last night! If you missed it, it was a tribute to some of the Queens that paved that way and are icons in Rap & Hip Hop. The honorees included Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Lil' Kim, and Missy Elliott. Perhaps the highlight of the night or some of the highlights included Teyana Taylor who paid tribute to Lil' Kim. Also Rich Homie Quan performed with Lil' Kim and forgot the lyrics to "Get Money" which prompted Twitter to go all the way in. Ashanti, Eve and Keke Palmer paid tribute to Salt-N-Pepa. Rah Digga, YoYo, Da Brat paid tribute to Queen Latifah. Trina, Nelly Furtado, Monica paid tribute to Missy Elliott. Other appearances included Suga T, Babs Bunny, Diddy, Keyshia Cole, Heather B, Monie Love and many more. Oh let me not forget, Faith Evans introduced the Lil' Kim tribute which surprised many but Kim and Faith have patched thing up awhile back so that was nice to see Faith in that respect…

Lil' Wayne suffers another seizure and Omarion and girlfriend calls it quits

Lil' Wayne has suffered yet another seizure. This is the second seizure he's had in two months. People are starting to get concerned and rightfully so. Omarion and his baby mama Apyl Jones have broken up and Jones has taken her thoughts to social media. Jones' words prompted Omarion to issue his own statement. Jones also says the #BlackLivesMatter movement had nothing to do with their breakup in a video via social media. Sources say Omarion's unwillingness to tie the knot played a party in the demise of the relationship. Apryl sees herself as more than just a baby mama and certainly she should. Everyone is baffled over this and some think its a merely a publicity stunt and/or story line for themselves for the new season of "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood". What do you think? If that ain't enough Omarion's friend, Bow Wow continues to make news for all the wrong reasons. He called out Omarion today after the breakup news saying they should go out and g…

Lil' Kim celebrates a birthday and deets on the VH1's "Hip Hop Honors"

Happy Birthday today to the Queen Bee, Lil' Kim! She turns 41 or 42 depending on various bios online. If she were to tell it, she'd say she's still in her 30s but that is an untruth. I'm not sure why Lil' Kim doesn't want to ever admit to her age. Think about this, Lil' Kim was featured on Biggie's debut, "Ready To Die" in 1994. Okay, that was 22 years ago so clearly Lil' Kim had to be 19 or 20 around that time so my guess is, she's either 41 or 42. Again Happy Birthday Lil' Kim! You can see her tonight on VH1's "Hip Hop Honors" which pays tribute to Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, and Salt-N-Pepa. Pretty much every female rapper in the last 20 years has some part in it except for Foxy and Azealia Banks. Azealia is currently on tour and I don't know what Foxy's deal is but I do think she should of been honored or attending in some capacity. Rah Digga, Trina, Eve, Remy Ma, Mia X, Da Brat are just a few of the fe…

Rihanna and Drake go double platinum and Chaka Khan checks into rehab

Rihanna and Drake are not only collaborators but also they have tied for most successful albums of the year so far. Their perspective albums, "ANTI" and "Views" have both been certified double Platinum for sales and streams totaling 2 million. Congrats to both! In other music news, Chaka Khan and her sister have both checked into rehab for addiction to prescription pain medication. Sources say Chaka was touched by friend Princes' death and his addiction to pain medication that she prompted to get clean. Good luck Chaka! You are in our prayers! It's funny because Chaka has a history of drug and alcohol abuse over the years. It hasn't seemed to affect her voice though, I will say that. On the reality TV front, Porsha Williams of  "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" has an arrest warrant out. If you recall back in December, Jami Ziegler; an one time associate and employee of Porsha's was beaten down by Williams during a Christmas party while fi…

Beyoncé speaks out on Dallas shootings and Birdman and French Montana join "Empire"

Beyoncé has spoken out and sends her condolences to the officers who lost their lives during the Dallas protests. More stories of officers getting shot has plagued the news in the last few days. #StopTheViolence #StopTheHate Snoop Dogg and The Game have teamed up in L.A. to band together with the LAPD to start an open dialogue about all the violence. Snoop, The Game, and hundreds of other people marched alongside the men. Elsewhere in Atlanta, there was a protest that spanned several streets. More celebrities have spoken out and still some remain silent but again that's their choice. D.L. Hughley, Sarah Jessica Parker, Angela Simmons, Tyrese, Jourdan Dunn, and Tyga have all spoken out over all the incidents that have been in the news. When will it stop? On a lighter note, "Empire" is shooting their third season and spotted on set was none other than Birdman and French Montana. People were clowning French Montana in a video where it appeared he had makeup on and low and …

Janet Jackson, Beyoncé and Ashanti speak out on the recent killings among black men

Janet Jackson is one of the many artists who is speaking out against the recent killings of innocent black men by police officers. Janet posted a video to her Facebook account called, "Can't Be Stopped" featuring several hashtags dedicated to the those whose lives were lost.  Beyoncé had a moment of silence during her "Formation World Tour" and listed all the names of the various victims that have lost their lives over a big screen. Other stars that have spoken out during this genocide include Ashanti, Demi Lovato, Pink, Taraji P. Henson(show: "Empire"), etc. Many are upset at those artists who have chose not to speak up but that is their choice. It doesn't mean they don't care or are not personally affected by this genocide, but we should keep that in mind. But I think as a public figure nowadays when their all practically very active on social media posting business ventures, trips, music, etc, you would think they would take the time to po…

Ciara gets married and Wendy Williams under fire for comments

Kelly Rowland's friend, Ciara tied the knot today in England. Guests include Jennifer Hudson. Congrats to Ciara and Russell! Now go away for awhile! I know by now we have all heard about the unfortunate killing of Alton Sterling. The 35 year old father was outside of a store selling CD's where he was killed by police. The shocking video has made its rounds on the Internet. The police involved in the death of Alton Sterling have been placed on administrative leave until the investigation is done. Justice for Alton Sterling! In other news, Wendy Williams has come under fire for comments she's made on her show. She said something along the lines of white people should be offended by organizations such as NAACP. I didn't see the video of Wendy. I figured it was too cringe worthy so i saved myself the embarrassment of watching it. I personally think Wendy went too far this time but what else is new? People say and do anything these days and it doesn't matter who they o…

Ciara thinks Future might kill her fiancé and Cynthia Bailey of "RHOA" gets divorce

Mariah Carey was one of the many artists that performed at this year's Essence Festival held down in New Orleans. Other artists that performed included Da Brat, Jermaine Dupri, Maxwell, and Kandi Burruss. Speaking of Kandi, her "RHOA" co-star Cynthia Bailey says she is officially divorcing husband, Peter Thomas. She says she doesn't wish to be married anymore. We have seen the two's relationship play out on TV ever since Cynthia joined the show in season 3. Expect to see more drama on the upcoming season is which is said to be filming. LaTavia Roberson, formerly of Destiny's Child is said to be hospitalized after having some pregnancy complications. This is the second pregnancy for the star. Reports say that LaTavia was in critical condition. Hopefully good things will be in her favor during this difficult time. The big story today is about Ciara. There are stories going around that she secretly tied the knot overseas then there are other reports that sugges…

Azealia Banks addresses skin lighting controversy and Brandy forced to cancel European tour

Azealia Banks has the internet talking again! This time she's taking on the whole skin lighting controversy which has plagued the black community in recent years. Many stars have been accused of lighting their skin either for financial gain or for their own personal insecurities. In typical Azealia Banks fashion she shot back at critics who has criticized her. Azealia posted several videos on her Facebook and Instagram account explaining her decision to lighten her skin and what it means to her. What do you think about stars lighting their skin? Most recently Lil' Kim came under fire for a much lighter complexion. Are stars getting out of control? Brandy has been forced to cancel her European tour due to vocal strain. She was advised to take a vocal rest or she would severe her vocal chords and we can't have that. Brandy thanked fans for their support and promised to make up the dates in the future. How unfortunate! I know Brandy was performing her ass off every night and…

Lil' Kim pull out of performance and Chris Brown thrown out of rented pad

Lil' Kim was set to perform at tonight's Essence Music Festival but had to pull out due to "unfilled business obligations" her representative said in a statement. However, you can expect to see Lil' Kim front and center when she is honored by VH1 later this month during their "Hip Hop Honors" which airs on July 11. Chris Brown has been kicked out his Ibiza pad that he rented! According to the landlord vomit, knife marks, and urine were all over the pad. The landlord called the cops saying that Brown refused to leave after his check out time. This has been quite the week for Chris Brown who has been sued by Suge Knight. His tour manager alleged that he was punched by Brown. But in typical Brown fashion, he is taking all the nonsense and rumors in stride. It's not hard to believe some of this stuff though given Brown's history as being volatile. What do you all think? Tami Roman of "Basketball Wives" and Amber Rose has come to the defen…
