Why does Foxy Brown insist on getting so violent about her nails? She was on probation for allegedly attacking two manicurists. Now, TMZ is reporting that Foxy apparently got kicked off a Royal Caribbean cruise for losing it after missing a manicure appointment. Do her nails have like, magic powers? Do evil spirits reside in them so she has to appease them every now and then? Because they seem to be such a trigger for her!
The deal is that she set up the appointment at the cruise salon, but supposedly swanned in three hours late. As all the nail technicians were busy, they couldn’t give Foxy time. Needless to say, she went bananas to the extent that security had to take her away. Apparently, Foxy was booted off the ship when the reached a Cayman Islands destination. Sources also say that she’s flown home now. If this is true, then we’re so over her. Forget the fact that she turned up three hours late. This sort of cray-cray deserves it’s own hall of infamy.

Congratulations, Foxy Brown! You have succeeded in two things by sporting this station wagon-leather loincloth to BB King’s nightclub last night. First, you are responsible for the psychological scarring ofÃ‚Â TheFABlife staff. Second, you have solidified your position as president of the Female Rappers Who Can’t Dress Club. We’re sure Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj are happy to welcome another member.
If the turquoise panties weren’t oozing enough classiness for you, Bossip reports that Foxy addressed her recent arrest to the crowd by saying, “This is what we tell all the haters: You canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t keep a good b*tch down, we makes bail.” Don’t forget that Foxy was arrested last week after violating a protective order. If we had it our way she would be back in the clink for this fashion crime – with no bail.
That’s one way of popping up on the radar again. Foxy Brown was arrested in New York yesterday. And the reason is that she apparently violated a protective order that was issued from a neighbor, Arlene Raymond, who had obtained a court order which asked Foxy to stay away. She didn’t, and verbally engaged Raymond, which got the handcuffs slapped on her.She’s since been released on $50,000 bail.
The rapper’s camp has a different story to tell (but of course). Her manager, Bernadette Brennan, says that Foxy did nothing of the sort. The deal is that Foxy was getting into her car to get to rehearsals a show she has coming up at the B.B. King Blues Club in NY. Wait…she’s still performing? The neighbor got up in Foxy’s face and started screaming at her. Foxy, apparently, ignored her and went inside to stop the problem. That’s when the sirens showed up and Foxy got booked.
This isn’t the first time Ms Brown’s – real name, Inga Marchand - been arrested. She was booked in Florida a couple of years ago for battery and obstruction of justice. She caused a ruckus at a beauty supply shop, supposedly throwing hair glue at an employee. She made it worse by trying to clock a cop, who came to sort the situation out. She also did 80 hours of community service back in 1997 after a run-in with two hotel employees. The beef? They informed her they didn’t have an iron. It doesn’t end there. She had to take anger management classes and was on probation for allegedly attacking two manicurists at a nail salon. Her rap sheet’s not doing her any favors here.

There’s no tradition in hip-hop more exciting than the feud. Since the earliest days of street-corner rhyme battles, MCs have been taking each other head-on, fighting to be the best on the block, the hottest in the neighborhood, or the king of the whole game. Rap beefs can originate anywhere, from a subtle slight to a full-on threat. Sometimes they’re funny, sometimes they’re tragic, and sometimes they’re just plain weird. Here, from old-school word wars to semi-automatic shootouts, we count down the ten biggest feuds in rap history. Click into the gallery below to begin. [Photos: Getty Images]
Lots of rappers say they won’t snitch, but Lil’ Kim has the perjury conviction to prove it. When her entourage got into a shootout with friends of rival Foxy Brown in downtown Manhattan following a Hot 97 interview in February 2001 (leaving one injured), the trash-talking sex freak behind hits like “How Many Licks?” and “Magic Stick,” told police she hadn’t been near the shooting. She changed her tune in front of a grand jury, but asserted that manager D-Roc, a shooting suspect, wasn’t present, and that she didn’t even know bodyguard C-Gutta, also accused. After witnesses had them leaving the scene in the same limo, D-Roc and C-Gutta were sentenced to over ten years each, and Kim was up for perjury.
Lil’ Kim claimed innocence – how was she expected to remember if her manager had shot people in front of her? But thanks to damning testimony from Junior M.A.F.I.A. members Cease and Banger, she was found guilty and sentenced to a year and a day for being less than forthcoming. [Photo: Getty]
