Rihanna makes history and Iggy Azalea sounds off on ex boyfriend's baby news

Image
Rihanna just released her video for her new single, "Sledgehammer" from the "Star Trek" soundtrack. From what I saw the video looks a little trippy and Rihanna looks demonic. I read the song was written by Sia(worked with Christina Aguilera). Rihanna also just collected her 21st top 5 hit with "This Is What It's Made For" featuring Calvin Harris(I believe that's the name of the song). Congrats to Rihanna! Rihanna is currently overseas on her "ANTI World Tour" and interestingly enough Beyoncé is overseas as well on her "Formation World Tour". The Academy Awards has finally decided to "blacken" their Academy by announcing 46 new members to the Academy. This year the Academy came under fire for the lack of Black actors and black movies being recognized. This has been an issue over the years and its a good thing they took the broadening seriously. Now if these other award shows would stop being political, then we'd b…

Beyoncé's mother comes to her defense and Lil' Kim fans come for Nene Leakes

Image
Mama Tina comes to her daughter's rescue after everyone accused Beyoncé of dipping out of the BET Awards. Apparently Beyoncé had to be overseas for her overseas leg of her "Formation World Tour". Lil' Kim's fans came to her rescue after Nene Leakes started throwing shade or one of her writers for her new website. The website which Nene just launched called "The Fab Gab" deals with everyday topics including plastic surgery(which Nene has been very open about in recent years) and dating. Nene took time to address the Lil' Kim fans by saying she didn't write the article that threw shade at Lil' Kim. I wonder will Nene address what Khia said about her on her video blog. Nene is one of the few celebs who will basically responded to every negative critique she receives especially when it comes from another celebrity. Jennifer Hudson has signed to Epic Records. Jennifer has been apart of the Sony Records family since her first signing. Originally …

Mariah Carey brings out surprise guest at Vegas show and Chris Brown sued

Image
Mariah Carey has been bringing out surprise guests during her stint in Las Vegas. Just last week she brought out John Legend for an intimate lap dance for her hit single, "Touch My Body". Just a few days ago Mariah brought out none other than Blac Chyna which I thought was pretty random. I guess! Who do you think Mariah will bring out next? Congratulations are in order for Jill Scott who got married this weekend! Suge Knight is suing Chris Brown for saying his lack of security is the reason why he got shot 5 times. Chris Brown's ex manager has spoken out and says they quit because Chris was "irrational" and "on drugs". No surprise there! Justin Timberlake faced a backlash after Jesse Williams' BET acceptance speech. He has since apologized for his words which stated "we are all one" or something along those lines. Jesse spoke about the power of Black people and what we represent during his acceptance speech for his Humanitarian award. A…

Beyoncé dips out of BET Awards and Tamar Braxton shades Toni Braxton

Image
Beyoncé opened up the 2016 BET Awards last night with a performance of the song, "Freedom" and she was joined by Kendrick Lamar and abruptly left the show. Beyoncé's mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson accepted Beyoncé's awards in her honor. Someone told me at work that Bey had to leave to go to London. Is that true? While I didn't personally watch the BET Awards telecast, I was informed through social media at many of the aha moments and performances. The "other" highlight of the show was the many Prince tributes in the form of Erykah Badu, Bilal, Janelle Monae, and Jennifer Hudson who brought the house down with "Purple Rain". I was fortunate to see a :30 second clip of the performance and I need to see the rest. Elsewhere Toni Braxton was in tow with her new man, Birdman. Speaking of Toni, her sister threw some shade on IG over Toni's decision to use Tamar's ex makeup artist. Tamar is too damn dramatic for my taste. I like dramatic but not…

Azealia Banks talks plastic surgery and Keri Hilson shocks Snapchat users

Image
Azealia Banks says she plans to get a butt lift after publicly criticizing Nicki Minaj and K. Michelle for their own procedures. Azealia also plans to do a "skin lighting" video. I actually think Lil' Kim should do one since she's seem to have the "skin lighting" thing packed, just saying! Azealia also took time to criticize T.I. over his role in the remake of "ROOTS" and his disdain over Donald Trump. As far as music is concerned, Azealia says she's finishing her "Fantasea 2: The Second Wave" by summer's end. Chris Brown is being sued by his former manager who says Chris assaulted him. A few days ago Keri Hilson had Twitter on fire after she posted a video on her Snapchat of her swallowing a popsicle whole. The shocking act was meant to be funny and it was taken that way but also let people know Keri is not to be messed with it when it comes to placing things deep in her throat! Ha! Kanye West just released the video to his sin…

Khia speaks on beef with Trina and K. Michelle sex tape leaks

Image
Khia says she has no beef with Trina despite dissing her over the years. Khia was recently asked on air during her YouTube show what the origin of her beef with Trina was. Khia went on to say that it was a "gag" and shade is naturally thrown throughout Hip Hop. In another video Khia blasted K. Michelle who was the victim of a sex tape leak out on social media. Several 10 second clips of K. Michelle engaging in oral sex and masturbation surface but K. Michelle has denied the claims. Khia took K. Michelle to task for calling out her "Love & Hip Hop" co-star Mimi Faust for her sex tape when she is now doing the same thing. What do you think? Is K. Michelle a hypocrite? I like think so but that's neither here nor there. In other music news, Kelis is in the studio working on new music. I wonder what she's cooking up? I was listening to "Kelis Was Here" last night and remembering how great an album it is. I prefer Kelis when she does R&B and I …

Lebron James' stepfather disses Beyoncé & Jay Z and Rita Ora signs new record deal

Image
Lebron James' stepfather had some harsh words for Beyoncé and Jay Z after they attended the NBA Finals, Game 6 in Cleveland. James' stepfather accused the Carters for merely wanting attention and wanting to see Lebron lose to the Warriors. Of course they #Beyhive went in! There were rumors that the Carters were buying some huge mansion but the rumor has been shot down. Currently Beyoncé is enjoying some down time in the sun with her family in Hawaii! Rita Ora has signed with Atlantic Records after her nasty split with Roc Nation. Congrats to one of the rumored "Becky with the good hair" women! Ha! Drake threw some shade at Bryson Tiller on social media when Drake posted a video while traveling on a boat. He saw a bystander strolling along the boardwalk and announced that the man was Bryson Tiller, who would be performing outside. I'm not sure if this was all in fun or if there is a beef.

Rihanna in hot water over her admiration for Lebron James and Iggy Azalea ends relationship with fiancé

Image
Rihanna has caused a storm of controversy after posting several posts on her Instagram page regarding Lebron James. Rihanna, on several occasions has referred to the married James as "bae" upon congratulating him on his win in the NBA Finals last night. A few weeks ago Rihanna posted a picture of herself with the #23 on her body, which looked like it was sprayed in whipped cream. The act was seen as sexually suggestive and very inappropriate to many. So the question today on New York's "The Breakfast Club" radio show was, did Rihanna go too far in her love and admiration for Lebron James? If you recall Rihanna has referenced Lebron on her hit song, "Bitch Better Have My Money". Do you think Rihanna is being inappropriate or simply fanning out like the rest of the Lebron James' fans? In other music news, it looks as if things are over for couple, Iggy Azalea and her NBA player boyfriend, Nick Young. Iggy posted on social media she can no longer tr…

Janet Jackson's brother admits she's pregnant and T.I. & Tiny's daughter arrested

Image
Tito Jackson, Janet Jackson's brother appeared on "Wendy" earlier in the week to reveal he found out Janet was pregnant like everyone else did. He did say he called her to confirm the news and she said "yes I'm pregnant". Wendy tried to clarify exactly what he meant by "pregnant" meaning was a child in her stomach or was she using a surrogate. Tito revealed that she will have a baby and that's that. In other music news, T.I. & Tiny's daughter Zonnique was arrested at an airport for trying to get a gun through security. Say what? In reality TV news, Kenya Moore's ex boyfriend, Matt Jordan wants Kenya back and he posted it on social media. Nene Leakes admits to having her 2nd nose job while shutting down the haters in the process. Nene also dished on her relationship with Porsha Williams while appearing on "Watch What Happens Live". She told Andy she didn't have a prob with Porsha but Porsha has beef with her as well a…

Demi Lovato called out Mariah Carey today for being rude and constantly shading Jennifer Lopez

Image
Demi Lovato labeled J-Lo as "classy". It all started with a meme on Instagram. The meme features pictures of both Mariah and Ariana Grande. The meme pokes fun at the notion of ordering a product online and once you receive it in the mail, its nothing like it appeared originally. Demi took offense and stated that the pictures should be reversed. Mariah represented the product online and her picture appeared first and Ariana whose picture was second represented getting a product in the mail and it not being what it was supposed to be. I hope you guys got that. I'm sure if you search for the meme you'd find it. As you can imagine, the Lambs(Mariah's hardcore fans) went all the way in on Demi. I will keep you all up to date as this story unfolds. If that's not enough drama for you, it went down last night when blogger Perez Hilton called out Nicki Minaj and dissed her brother for sleeping with underage guys. I'm really unsure how that all started but it was …

Nicki Minaj returns with new song and Nene Leakes talks "RHOA" season 9

Image
So Nicki Minaj is featured on a new song featuring Jeremih and DJ Mustard. The song titled, "Don't Hurt Me" is currently trending on Twitter. Nicki references NBA superstars Lebron James, Steph Curry, and Michael Jordan. She also name checks the late Rick James. Fans are saying Nicki went in as normal and I can say her verses are cool but the song overall in my opinion sucks. In reality TV news, Nene Leakes sort of confirmed her involvement in season 9 of the "RHOA" which just started shooting last week. Joseline Hernandez of "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" just posted the results to a polygraph test about husband boyfriend Stevie J. Joseline alleged he watches gay porn and the polygraph results which she posted on social media confirmed she was telling the truth. My thing with this is, he watches gay porn and it obviously wasn't an issue to you because you still were involved with him. Joseline is just being really hurtful and spiteful right now bu…

Lil' Wayne suffers seizure and Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott to be honored by VH1

Image
I want to first start by saying prayers go out to the families, friends, and loved ones who lost someone due to the Orlando club shooting. It is a very sad and unfortunate event. Now on to some music news, Lil' Wayne suffered a seizure during a flight and had to have an emergency landing. Lil' Wayne tweeted from his Twitter account informing fans "thanks for the prayers". VH1 has revealed that they will honor Queen Latifah and Missy Elliott for this year's "Hip Hop Honors". The telecast this year will honor women in Hip Hop. No offense to Queen Latifah and Missy Elliott but they already have numerous accolades and awards. I'm not sitting here saying they are not deserving of this honor either. I just feel like female rappers like Da Brat, Lil' Kim, Foxy Brown, and Trina deserve to be honored as well. I'm interested in seeing who else they decide to honor. "The Hip Hop Honors" airs on July 11 on VH1. I did some reading and its been…

Azealia Banks apologizes and Usher gets brushed off

Image
Azealia Banks has finally seen the light, at least that's what I'm hoping. After some not so memorable Twitter rants, Azealia issued a lengthy apology to her fans that's she offended recently and over the years. I was very happy to see her apologize and I hope this is the end of the craziness but only time will tell. I hardly ever agree with Azealia and her messiness. I love her for her music though and I hope she continues to put out good music. Usher attended the Cavs game last night and got brushed off by Lebron James but he did receive a hug from Stephen Curry; who won last night! Ha! There were videos of this all on the Internet so I thought I'd share. It was pretty funny! Whew! It's hot here! Is it hot wherever you are! Last time I looked at the weather it said it was 95 degrees. Well luckily for me I'm sitting under the A/C(air conditioner). In reality TV news, Kenya Moore of "RHOA"(Real Housewives of Atlanta) recently broke up with her rent a…

Nick Cannon denies holding up divorce to Mariah Carey and Justin Beiber involved in fight

Image
As we all know Mariah Carey is still legally married to Nick Cannon and the rumor has been that he is not willing to sign the divorce papers. Nick Cannon is denying this and says he wants Mariah to be "happy". Well then, sign those damn divorce papers! Justin Beiber was seen on camera fighting in Cleveland at the Westin Hotel after a man and two women asked for a picture. Justin replied "no" and went to lunge on the man. What is Justin smoking? He really needs to get over his self in my opinion. Bobby Brown's tell-all interview has some people reeling particularly mother of Whitney Houston, Cissy Houston. And we all know Cissy don't play. Cissy talked to People magazine and blasted Bobby's claims about Whitney. In the interview, if you missed it, Bobby says he caught Whitney doing drugs on their wedding day; which is pretty believable. Whitney herself says the drugs started around 1992. He also alleges that Whitney had a same sex relationship with frie…

Future sued and Bobby Brown speaks out Whitney Houston

Image
Future is being sued for 10 million dollars by Rocko. Do you all remember Rocko? He used to date Monica back in the day. Well Future was signed to Rocko's A1 Entertainment back in 2010. Future allegedly went behind Rocko's back and cut a side deal with Epic Records which resulted in a huge payout for Future. Now Rocko is wanting what's owed to him. #teamlitty Bobby Brown appeared on ABC's "20/20" last night for an emotional interview regarding Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina. Bobby has a book being released next week aptly titled, "Every Little Step". Bobby spoke in detail about his tumultuous relationship with Whitney Houston detailing their drug use over the years. Most of what Bobby spoke about was things that I heard previously from him and Whitney Houston. He did deny spitting on Whitney which she claimed in an interview with Oprah during her "I Look To You" album release. He also accuses Nick Gordon of Bobbi Kristina's death.…

Beyoncé is being sued and Angela Simmons' fiancé caught in cheating scandal

Image
Beyoncé is being sued by a guy who claims her "Lemonade" video ripped off his video. He is alleging that he had been in contact with Beyoncé's reps; including Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. They were interested in a treatment for her "Lemonade" video but ultimately didn't use him to direct the piece. Instead the guy is claiming that Beyoncé stole his video concept evident in her trailer for "Lemonade" which was released nearly two months ago. Angela Simmons of "Run's House" fame and an entrepreneur is feeling the heat as her fiancé has been alleged to have cheated on her. Angela; who is currently pregnant with her first child is being ridiculed up and down on Twitter. Apparently its been said that Angela was a virgin prior to becoming pregnant. Many are shocked by Angela's choice of fiancé who is an ex-con. More as this story unfolds and I'm sure there's more to this story that I haven't even mentioned.…

BET Awards hosts revealed and Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose officially divorced

Image
Hello all! So the hosts for the 2016 BET Awards has been revealed and its none other than "black-ish" stars, Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson. I swear I read that Mike Epps was the host this year but maybe that was just a rumor. In reality TV news, Toya Wright and Mickey "Memphitz" are now officially divorced. We all know Toya from the BET show, "Tiny & Toya" fame and for being Lil' Wayne's former wife. Memphitz is famously known for his volatile relationship with K. Michelle which has played out over the years on the blogs, the court room, and TV. Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose are also now officially divorced. The former couple celebrated by going to a strip club together. Happy Birthday to Prince! The singer would of been 58 years old today! R.I.P.

Future unable to peform at Summer Jam and Tyrese reportedly dating Sanaa Lathan

Image
New York's yearly Summer Jam festivities happened last night not without some drama though. Apparently one of the headliners, Future wasn't about to perform on the main stage for some reason. Fat Joe and Remy Ma performed and brought out Ashanti. I didn't see much else footage from the show except for that. In other music news, Tyrese has been seen cuddling up with actress Sanaa Lathan. Sanaa had most recently been linked up with French Montana and before that Denzel Washington. In reality TV news, Joseline and Stevie J of "Love & Hip Hop" fame have been beefing on Twitter and airing out each others personal business. Joseline has accused Stevie of being gay and liking trans girls among other things. Stevie on the other hand has alleged that he and Joseline were never married and that she's a "hoe". This is getting messier by the day and by the time the reunion comes, its going to be one for the books. You know they always say, more drama goes …

Toni Braxton goes pubic with new beau and Tamar Braxton sued by Warner Bros.

Image
So I got some news today about the Braxton sisters. It's a lot of news and I want to keep it as short as possible. I'll start with Toni Braxton first who brought out Birdman at her concert last night. There had been rumors of Toni and Birdman dating and her bringing him out last night seemed to confirm those rumors. If that wasn't enough, Toni warned everyone to "put some respeck on his name". If you didn't know that's the famous quote from Birdman during his 2 minute interview with "The Breakfast Club", a radio show based out of New York(in case you didn't know). Tamar Braxton is still feeling the heat after her exit from "The Real". Warner Bros. is threatening to sue or have already began legal proceedings against WeTV and Tamar and Vince Herbert; Tamar's husband. Warner Bros. alleges that Tamar faked scenes on her reality TV show, "Braxton Family Values" when news spread that she got fired. Immediately after news …

Image
Drake is said to be dating a 19 year old girl. Pictures of the new couple are floating around. This news comes on the heels of the fight that broke out at Drake's Memorial Day party. In more couple news, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian have signed on for a 6 part reality show to air on E! The show will document the whirlwind romance and birth of the newest Kardashian baby. Will you be tuned in? On the new album front, Fantasia's new album, "The Definition Of..." has been pushed back to July 29. The album was originally set to be released on June 10. Multiple singles have been released but none have stuck on the charts thus far. Fantasia recently released, "Sleeping With The One I Love". Moving on, Snoop Dogg asked everyone to boycott the premiere of the remake of "Roots" and I agree with him and Big Boi suffered a backlash on social media after a meme he posted with Florida Evan from "Good Times" comparing her to Mothers of today which fe…
