Fight breaks out at Drake's Memorial Day party and new couple alert revealed

Image
Drake's "Views" is the number 1 album in the US for the fourth straight week. His single, "One Dance" sits at #1 on the Hot 100. Speaking of Drake, the rapper hosted a Memorial Day Weekend party which erupted into multiple fights by the guests. Some of the fights were caught on tape. An interesting revelation was revealed along with the fighting. It is being said that Khloe Kardashian and Odell Beckham Jr. were said to be coupled up at the party. Odell is a good friend of Drake's and we all know Khloe. Many took to Twitter to insist that Odell's career was ruined now due to his rumored involvement with Khloe Kardashian. The Kardashians have over the years developed a reputation for dating black men and inadvertently changing how their perceived by the public. Happy Birthday to Remy Ma who celebrated her birthday yesterday and Happy Birthday today to spitfire Azealia Banks. I hope you all enjoyed your Holiday weekend. I will be back with more stories an…

Flashback Friday: Janet Jackson - Anytime Anyplace

Image
"Anytime Anyplace" was one of the many hits from Janet's 1993 self-titled album. The album just turned 23 this month. The video was just as steamy as the song if not more. Enjoy this video for "Flashback Friday" and enjoy your Holiday weekend!

Rihanna hooks up with Dior for sunglasses line and T.I. concert erupts into violence

Image
So there's a lot to report today so I'm going to keep it relatively brief. Rihanna has paired up with Dior for a sunglasses line. Gucci Mane is out of jail. Shots rang out at T.I.'s concert. It seems like trouble follows T.I. wherever he goes even though he wasn't directly involved. Rapper Troy Ave was caught on tape shooting at who many assumed to be rapper Maino. Maino denied it was he and confirmed that the two had a great working relationship. Meanwhile Troy Ave's dumb ass shot himself and shot someone in the stomach. Three people were injured. What a hot ass mess! Keyshia Cole was seen hanging out with Floyd Mayweather who just bought her a luxury truck. Hmmm. Well guys there you have it. Thanks for reading! :)

Is Remy Ma going at Nicki on new remix and Meek Mill disses Drake again

Image
Hey all! I'm calling this blog post the "The Beef Edition" since both stories concentrate on rumored beef and beef that has been brewing for awhile now. Yesterday Fat Joe and Remy Ma released the remix to their hit single, "All The Way Up" with a feature from Jay Z and newly recorded verses from Fat Joe and Remy Ma. Immediately after the song dropped Twitter was on fire for two reasons; the first being Jay-Z alluding to Beyoncé's "Lemonade" album but also some clever wordplay. Secondly many people felt that Remy took a few shots at Nicki on her verse. People were saying they felt like Remy was getting back at Nicki for a jab she threw years earlier. Remy even spoke about this back in the day but Remy and Nicki are pretty friendly so I'm sure its nothing more, nothing less but hey there's no such thing as bad publicity. I read that Remy Ma and Fat Joe will release their joint album in July. Speaking of "All The Way Up", Meek Mill…

Mariah Carey signs on for 3 movie deal and more details emerge on Tamar Braxton's firing from "The Real"

Image
Mariah Carey is making moves ever since she got that new manager, not that her past managers didn't make things happen for her, but Mariah is really putting herself out there in a good way. The singer just signed on for a three movie deal with the Hallmark Movie Channel. If you know the Hallmark Movie Channel, they specialize in sappy movies and Christmas movies. One thing I am tired of hearing about and reading about is Bill Cosby and the never ending drama with Tamar Braxton being fired from "The Real". Now the other four co-hosts are sharing their side of the story and how they learned of the firing. I mean at this point I really don't care anymore. I think "The Real" needed Tamar more than she needed them. Now a new report has surfaced saying Tamar was "ghetto" and advertisers had a problem with her and yadda yadda. I know Tamar will be okay in the end. She has jobz, yes with a "Z". Boom! In other music news, Beyoncé and Jay Z are s…

BET shades Billboard Awards, Prince tribute and MTV apologizes to Ciara

Image
Hey people! I know its very rare that I greet you all personally but I wanted to say this post is being labeled the "Shade Edition". A lot of shade was thrown last night and over the last few days. So I'll start with Lee Daniels, creator of "Empire" who shad some words for his dear friend Mariah Carey. He said "Mariah shouldn't do reality TV!". Mariah responded by saying her new show, "isn't a reality show". Take that Lee Daniels! Ha! On a totally different note, Madonna is facing a backlash after her Prince tribute fell on deaf ears. Madonna was joined by Stevie Wonder for a somber duet of Prince's "Purple Rain". While I feel the tribute left a lot to be desired, at least Billboard did pay tribute to Prince, had they not, people would of been upset about that. Immediately after the performance, BET shaded Madonna by posting a 15 second clip with the caption, "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We got you". …

Billboard Awards 2016 recap so far and Tamar Braxton fired from "The Real"

Image
The Billboard Awards are going on as I type this. With that being said, I will give a brief recap of what has occurred so far. The award show, hosted by Ciara and Ludacris opened with a performance from Britney Spears. She performed a medley of her hits including "Toxic" and "I'm a Slave 4 U". The Weeknd won for Hot 100 Artist. Wiz Khalifa won for his "Furious 7" song, can't remember the name of it. Fifth Harmony performed, "Work From Home". Meghan Trainor performed, "No". Oh yeah, Justin Beiber also performed. :( Nick Jonas performed and Shawn Mendes. Presenters included DJ Khaled, Kelly Rowland, Keke Palmer, Heidi Klum, Michael Strahan, etc. At this point I'm pretty much just waiting on the Prince tribute. In other music news, Tamar Braxton was reportedly let go from "The Real", the daytime talk show she hosted along with 4 other women including singer Adrienne Bailon. Tamar posted a cryptic message on social m…

Drake leads BET nominations and Whitney Houston hologram performance cancelled

Image
Drake leads the nominees for the 2016 BET Awards which were just announced yesterday. Drake leads with 9 nominations. Beyoncé has 5 nominations. The BET Awards air next month. Speaking of award shows, The Billboard Music Awards will air this Sunday on ABC. Artists scheduled to perform are Britney Spears, Pink, and Ke$ha. Are their any black performers? But there are black hosts; Ciara and Ludacris. Do you all remember when Ciara and Ludacris read off the nominee list on live TV and Ciara didn't want to read Future's name on the teleprompter? Ha! But your son's name is Future! What's the difference? Speaking of Ludacris, he is back on the set for "Furious 8" which I believe will be released next Summer. It looks like we won't be seeing the first Whitney Houston hologram performance that was set to air on "The Voice" Monday. Whitney's estate had the performance pulled after it leaked online. The performance featured a duet with the show's…

Mariah Carey shades J-Lo and Lil' Scrappy gets engaged

Image
Mariah Carey continues to deny knowing J-Lo. She was recently asked during a promo stop on "Watch What Happens Live". She did admit to coming face to face with her and shaking her hand and waving but she says she's never had a convo with her, thus her not knowing her. I get what she's saying when she explained herself but there was still some shadiness to the whole thing. Mariah also threw shade at Nicki Minaj if you want to call it that. When asked about it, Mariah pretty much refused to answer and directed the question towards Andy Cohen. On a much lighter note, she did reveal a secret behind the making of "We Belong Together". She shared that L.A. Reid was coming to listen to the song but she had not finished it. She was in a rush to finish it so instead of doing her famous ad-libs near the end of the song, she just belted out the last few notes which is what we hear and love today. Interesting! In other music news, Lil' Scrappy and Bambi from "…

Ashanti said to be secretly dating Game and the war between Ciara and Future heats up

Image
So word on the street is that Ashanti is secretly dating The Game. I read a story last night on another online blog and I believe it. I remember this same blog posted a screenshot of Ashanti liking one of Game's infamous underwear selfie pics. If that's not enough Game was said to be overheard but not seen on Ashanti's Snapchat, the same was said about Game. Both artists were visiting a club in L.A. Ashanti has been spending a lot of time in L.A. as of recently. Her sister has a place there and she's doing a lot of business over there. I think she's signed a record deal to one L.A. based label but don't quote me on that. It would be interesting if Game and Ashanti are dating though given their past history. Both artists recorded for labels that were once foes, Murder Inc. & G-Unit. While most of the beef has been patched up over the years there's still some ill feelings between Ja Rule & 50 Cent, Irv Gotti & Ashanti, and Game and 50 Cent. Ashan…

Foxy Brown robbed at airport and Juelz Santana facing foreclosure on his home

Image
Foxy Brown says her luggage came up missing while on a recent trip to Palm Springs. The reclusive and always controversial rapper says she had $100,000 worth of merchandise in her luggage which included several high end shoes from Gucci among other things. The thief remains at large. In other music news, T.I. just released the video for his new single, "Dope" featuring Marsha Ambrosius. Juelz Santana's home is said to be in foreclosure as well as Lil' Kim's after both artists allegedly stopped paying their mortgage. Juelz Santana has came out and denied the claims, though the paperwork leaked out. Just a few days ago, Juelz said he was returning to music after being absent from the music scene for over 10 years. I find it pretty ironic that he is returning to music now then again he has that mortgage to pay. I ain't mad at him though. People are mad though that Madonna has been chosen to honor Prince at this year's Billboard Music Awards. I really don…

Azealia Banks apologizes for rant and Keyshia Cole meets biological father

Image
The ever controversial Azealia Banks has apologized for her homophobic and racist rant. Her Twitter account remains suspended. In other music news,  Keyshia Cole has met her biological father. Future has a song with Jay Z in the works that he gushed about on social media. Tyga and Kylie Jenner have broken up and Tyga has already been seen with Karlie Redd from "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta". He contends that they are not dating though. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I did. I went to Chicago and I got see Trina live in concert. She was amazing and she looked absolutely beautiful. Thanks for reading! For more music news, gossip, rumors and my personal commentary, check back later!

Azealia Banks loses gig after racist comments and Nicki Minaj sued by her ex

Image
On the cusp of Azealia Banks ranting and raving about Zayn stealing her style, Disney star, Skai Jackson interceded in the feud with a comment of her own about Azealia. That comment prompted a Twitter exchange between Azealia Banks and the 14 year old Skai Jackson with many rooting Jackson on for reading Azealia her rights! Many felt that Azealia was out of line for arguing with a 14 year old but Skai was just as wrong for going back and forth with an adult, no matter how ignorant she may of been behaving, maybe one little read would of been good, but she shouldn't have gone back and forth. If that was enough Azealia went on Periscope and blasted Zayn some more as well as Skai Jackson. She also blasted UK rappers for their style and compared their style to that of the US rappers. Azealia's actions cost her, her headliner slot at a festival she was set to perform at. This is just another incident in an already long list of incidents that has involved Azealia Banks. Leave it to…

Game and 50 Cent said to reunite and Toni Braxton dating Birdman

Image
Is there a possible G-Unit reunion in the works? According to one of the famed DJ's associated with the group, The Game and 50 Cent may be reuniting. The two have been beefing over the years. Let's see how true this is. I feel The Game has been wanting to bury the hatchet for quite some time but 50 wants to keep the beef alive or he was simply not ready to forgive The Game for whatever reason. In other music news, Tamar Braxton may or may not have revealed that her big sis, Toni Braxton is dating Birdman. Toni Braxton famously worked with Birdman on her forgotten 2002 album, "More Than A Woman" on a track called, "Give It Back"(which was one of my favorite songs from that album). I would say they make an interesting couple if this is indeed true. I think we'd all agree that Toni could do much better but hey if she's happy I'm happy. I like Toni Braxton and I always have! You should read her memoir, "Unbreak My Heart" if you haven'…

Nicki Minaj shades ex and Azealia Banks calls out singer for stealing her style

Image
I'll call this blog entry, the "Fight Club Edition" as all the stories are primarily about fights that have taken place on social media today. First I'll start with Nicki Minaj since I'm using her "Anaconda" album cover. Nicki had some choice words for an unnamed person on Twitter with many assuming she's talking about ex, Safaree Samuels. Nicki tweeted that "poorting" gets upset seeing her happy or something to that effect. Safaree caught the shade and clapped back allegedly that Nicki relies too heavily on Percocets, a narcotic used to treat severe pain. Ouch! I wonder is it to treat the pain in the ass that is Safaree or her butt job! Ha! If that's not enough beef for ya, Kevin Mccall who famously guested on Chris Brown's, "Dueces" has been beefing with the singer for quite some time. Kevin is obviously upset over Chris not supporting him and some other jargon. Kevin has been feeling the heat lately in addition to his…

Janet Jackson's ex husband claims she has a secret child and Lauryn Hill apologizes to fans

Image
More Janet baby news: Janet Jackson's ex-husband, James Debarge has come out claiming that he believes Janet has a secret child from him. He says he was recently contacted by an unnamed woman claiming to be his child. He goes on to say that the woman in question says she was adopted and her adoptive parent(s) revealed on his or her deathbed the revelation that she was birthed by Janet, allegedly. Rumor of Janet having a secret child and passing it off to her older sister, Rebbie have ran rampant over the years. But the interesting thing about this rumor is it is one that hasn't seemed to go away. It wouldn't be totally shocking if Janet did have a child already because she is known to be very private and we find out things about her years later, like her marriages, the fact that she was blind at one and countless other things. I don't know what to believe to be honest. I always believe there is some truth to a rumor. Maybe she was pregnant and miscarried. Who knows!? …

Ne-Yo's ex-wife makes shocking claims and allegations about Prince's drug use come to light

Image
Ne-Yo's ex-wife make some shocking claims earlier this week. She said while she was married to Ne-Yo, they engaged in threesomes but she didn't lick the kitty. Monyetta Shaw, Ne-Yo's ex is still likely butt hurt after Ne-Yo made her get her tubes tied and then he divorces her, gets married again, and has more children. Well Ne-Yo's new wife Crystal Remay(sp), clapped back at Monyetta but I'm not sure what she said. I guess I wasn't interested enough in her clap back. I was more interested in Monyetta's claims and I believe them. Speaking of allegations, Arsenio Hall is suing Sinead O' Connor for $5 million dollars after she claimed that Arsenio fueled Prince's drug addiction. Sinead went on to say she hates when we lose singers to drugs. Prince famously penned the hit "Nothing Compares 2 U" which was a hit for Sinead but was also a song that Prince covered himself. These claims may seem outrageous but they are not all that surprising if i…

Music Video: Janet Jackson - Dammn Baby

Image
"Dammn Baby" is the second video release from Janet's album, "Unbreakable" which was released back in October. With the news that Janet is expecting her first baby, what better way to celebrate than to release the song that collects everyone's initial thoughts, when they found out Janet was pregnant, "Dammn Baby". "Dammn Baby" is one of my favorite songs on "Unbreakable" so I am glad to see it get the single treatment. The song gets shipped to radio on May 17.

Janet Jackson pregnant and Jay Z said to be working on new album

Image
It is being reported that Janet Jackson is indeed pregnant! News of Janet's impending pregnancy spread when the singer posted a video postponing her tour. How far along Janet is is anyone's guess. Knowing Janet and how private she can be, she may be farther along than we think. Janet will be 50 in two weeks! This is the first child for Janet! In other music news, Jay Z is said to be working on a new album detailing his side of the alleged cheating allegations that have plagued him. Beyoncé's "Lemonade" album is #1 and it sold 485K in pure album sales. The figure is much larger when the streaming is factored in. I can't remember what that number is right now. Not one to be outdone, Drake's new album, "Views" is said to have done a million or so streams in its first week and is now #1. I may be off a lot when that number but the streams were really huge for Drake. Expect a review of the new Drake album from me soon. And the Met Gala was the talk …

Tinashe mad at Rihanna and Beyoncé and more details on infamous Jay Z elevator fight

Image
Rihanna News: Tinashe is mad!!! The singer took to social media and disclosed that her album, "Joyride" which was set to be released in the coming weeks is not being ripped apart. The title track was given to Rihanna and will be included in a rumored "Anti" re-release. Tinashe took a jab at Beyoncé claiming she was the first to use an inspired makeup idea that Bey debuted in the video for "Sorry". Sounds like its been a bad week for Tinashe or should I say a bad last week. If that ain't enough, Chris Brown blasted her after she spoke out against him for disrespecting Kehlani. Oh shucks! Stuff like this happens all the time. Songs are passed around left and right in the industry. So good luck to Tinashe though. Maybe she should go independent. What do you think? And more on the whole Beyoncé debacle. It is being reported that Rachel Roy is indeed "Becky" and that's what Beyoncé allegedly referred to her all along. During the infamous fig…
