Ice-T on Soulja Boy: He Killed Hip-Hop!

Ice-T knows a lot of curse words, ya’ll. The veteran of the rap scene unleashed a verbal beat-down on Souljay Boy while chatting on DJ Cisco’s Urban Legend mixtape, blaming the young artist for ruining hip-hop with his Superman dancin’. His quote is below, and it’s totally NSFYourEyes. Ouch!

?F*ck Soulja Boy! Eat a dick! This n*gga single handedly killed Hip Hop. That sh*t is such garbage man. We came all the way from Rakim, we came all the way from Das EFX, we came all the way from motherf*ckers flowing like Big Daddy Kane and Ice Cube, and you come with that Superman sh*t? That sh*t is garbage. Hurricane (Chris) take them f*cking beads out of your hair n*gga! Man up. You n*ggas is making me feel real f*cking mad about this sh*t.?

Jamie-Lynn’s About to Pop

Jamie-Lynn Spears is about to pop out a cousin for Sean and Jayden, and Britney is so excited she’s ditched Los Angeles to be by her sister’s side. J-L is due at the end of June, which means her tot could be born at anytime over the next month or so. That leaves a lot of time for some serious sister bonding. There’s nothing like a game of Skeletons in the Closet played over a super-size bag of Cheetos with your big sis!

The baby couldn’t come at a better time for Britney, as her dad is selling her Studio City home so the “singer” can escape to a new crazy house in the Valley, full of pools and flat screen TVs and enormous garages. Somewhere, in a grimy studio apartment, Sam Lutfi is reallllllllllly pissed he screwed his BFF-ship up.

Mary J. Blige Buys Fans Fancy Things

There are a billion reason to love Mary J. Blige, so let’s start the day with just one. The singer was shopping recently at the Diane Von Fustenberg stores in downtown NYC, and overheard a customer freaking out about a dress she had on hold that she thought was $500 but turned out to be $900. Mary J. swooped in and asked to pay for the balance on the dress. “I know what it’s like to want something and not be able to have it,” Mary J. said when the customer tried to deny her offer. “I insist.”

Awww! Aren’t you just swooning at her kindness? She even declined the lady’s offer to repay her the balance on the dress, saying, ” “Just enjoy it. I’m blessed, so let me do this.” Other celebs out there – are you listening? Buy us stuff we can’t afford!? [NYP]

Fashion Failure: Rihanna’s Rough Rocker

RiRi performed at the MuchMusic Awards last night, and the normally adorable songbird committed every fashion offense in the book:

  • Cheesy officer cap? Check.
  • Ruffled top that really belongs in the sale bin of your local Fashion Bug? Check.
  • Lindsay Lohan skank leggings? Check.
  • Patent leather hooker boots that probably cost over $1000? Check.

The only thing that could have made this look better? A little arm candy by the name of Chris Brown.

Bow Wow’s Got Beef with Video Hotties

New beef alert! A couple of super hot video vixens – Rita G. and Dollicia “Doll” Bryant – hit up a radio show recently where they dished dirt on Kanye and talked trash about Bow Wow, ragging on his short stature and claiming he macked them while he was still with Ciara (WATCH the video of their trash talking sesh here). Ohhh snaps!

But Bow Wow’s not one to get walked all over, so he’s taken to the web with his own video (watch it above), refuting the gals’ claims. He’s even got recent footage (allegedly) of Dollicia hanging out with him and his boys. In his vid Bow Wow taunts the girls, saying, “You ain’t gonna win this game, you can’t play chess with Bobby Fischer, baby!” When discussing Rita G., who starred in Kanye’s “Flashing Lights” video, Bow Wow claims that “Nobody knows her!”

Well now we do! So who do you think won Round 1 of this battle?

Ashanti Might Marry Her ‘Good Friend’ Nelly

Everyone knows that Ashanti and Nelly are a couple – and every knows that every one knows, except the lovey-dovey pair. So when Ashanti spoke about her man this weekend, she of course kept it vague and unclear, even though we all know what’s going on. “Me and Nelly, we’re good friends. We kick it ? hang out a lot,” the singer coyly revealed. “The industry is very hard, so it’s good to have fun and lighten it up.”

But wait! Ashanti kept going, and she dropped a tiny info bomb when asked he she and her man might be marrying soon. “”Oh no. Noooo! No engagement. But definitely in the future. Ha! Ha!”

Is she teasing us or telling the truth? Either way, we hope there’s a ring involved. [People]

Chris & Rihanna Make Sexy Juice Together

Chrianna, the golden couple of hip-hop that has yet to reveal their love to the public, were spotted snacking on Jamba Juice together on Friday. How romantic and normal! With everything fast food joint they visit, we love Chris and Rihanna more. And you know what they say – the couple that juices together, stays together! If only they’d just admit that they’re a couple.

West Drops Diva Performance, Crowd Chants “Kanye Sucks!”

It’s not like Kanye‘s trying to make new friends, but you’d think he’d at least go after a few new fans. But after his craptastic performance at Bonnaroo, all he got was a crowd of haters. The rap-diva had been scheduled to perform at 2:45 AM on Sunday, but didn’t take the stage for almost two hours, thanks to his ridiculous stage set that apparently takes hours to set up. Hey, if Kanye wants a fake spaceship named Jane to talk to during his show, than that’s what he’ll get! According to comedian Aziz Ansari, West even complained to the inanimate object about his love life as part of the show, saying, “I been away too long. I ain?t had a woman in so long Jane. I just need some p*ssy.? Surely that kind of performer-spaceship interaction made the wait worth it, right fans?

Once on-stage, Kanye never addressed his delayed start, and later that day angry fans banded together for a “Kanye sucks!” chant, which probably would have been more effective during his actual concert. Oh well, they were probably tired (among other things).

Mariah Doesn’t Want To Wed Off-Camera

If an already married celebrity re-weds her youthful husband of two months and no one’s there to film it, does it count? Apparently not! Rumor has it that Mariah Carey has canceled a second round of nuptials to Nick Cannon because of a lack of public interest. “Mariah was willing to pay for the wedding, but the way she hoped to pay for the wedding was through the sale of photos. No one was interested,” says a snitch.

Wow, she’s running these personal decisions tied to her emotional life by the media before she proceeds. Bascially, she’s leaving things up to us! Us! Who’s a good celebrity? Who’s a good celebrity? That’s right! Mariah’s a good celebrity! Now roll over, play dead and write us some more No. 1′s! [MSNBC]
