Britney’s Back in the Studio

Britney wants to give us more songs! But do we even want them? The “singer” is back in the studio recording a follow up album to last year’s kinda hit “Blackout,” and her producer/co-writer calls her “amazing.”

He must be taking about her weave or Brit’s ability to chug back 32 ounces of frapp in half a minute. Surely he can’t mean her voice, right? The dude goes on to babble about how Brit is a “true professional” and only bringing positive stuff to the table. We don’t doubt that she can deliver a solid album – she did that already this fall. The real question is if she can deliver a solid version of herself – no meltdowns, no platform flip flops, and no half-assed lipsyncing. Is it possible? [Us]

Wino Wasted, Coughing Up Blood

They tried to make her go to rehab, and she said “no.” So now Amy’s stuck in the hospital with an irregular heartbeat, as doctors try to wean her off her daily drug routine. She also apparently has a chest condition which doctors think might be tuberculosis. A hospital spy reveals that, “She?d been been suffering horrible coughing fits and hurling up blood for a while but refused to be examined. Doctors now believe it is tuberculosis and are doing more tests to be certain.”

This is Amy Winehouse on drugs. Any questions? We got one – think she’ll show up to her previously scheduled commitments, like the Mandela Concert next week?

Diddy Doing Eddie Murphy’s Ex?

Remember when Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds kinda-sorta got married, but then it turned out the wedding wasn’t official and they split immediately after? Rightttt. Well, apparently she’s run into the arms of America’s #1 ladies man, DIDDY. Who isn’t doing Diddy these days? He waxes his man area, ladies – that is a sure thing! Buzz on the gossip blogs is that they pair are definitely a couple, and have been getting close on the sly at the Beverly Hills Hotel. What do you think – is this love happening or is it just internet lore?

Soulja Boy Slams Ice-T In 7-Minute Rant

The beef is on! Soulja Boy has responded to Ice-T‘s mix tape slam, and the result is 8 minutes or straight up insults. Surrounded by two pals, the Superman dancing rapper reminds us, and Ice, that the 80′s legend is “old as f*ck” and disses him for being “born three centuries ago.” And while Soulja admits Ice-T is a “legend in the game,” his concession does little to soften his rage against the rapper-turned-actor. He even points out the irony of a guy who once say a song called “Cop Killer” now playing a police officer on Law & Order. Soulja Boy’s a smarty!

Jamie-Lynn Not Yet a Woman, Definitely a Mommy

The latest Spears tot has finally arrived ya’ll! Get that baby a Starbucks! Jamie-Lynn Spears gave birth to a healthy baby girl this morning in Mississippi, possibly via c-section. The Spears clan was present, and a pal in the know reveals that “everyone is healthy and happy.” Hurray! J-L and her boyfriend Casey Aldridge have named their new daughter Maddie Briann, which is seems perfect for a little Southern belle who will presumably spend a lot of time cruising on ATVs with her pops. Congrats to all, especially BritBrit, for being okay with not being the center of attention for once. Our girls are growing up!

Kanye Praises Someone Else’s Greatness In Shocking Blog Post

In a surprising turn of events, Kanye West has taken to his blog to praise an individual other than himself. After fellow rapper Lil Wayne‘s record setting album sales this week with his Tha Carter III, Ye took to his blog and, under the headline “A MILLION HERE… A MILLION THERE!!!!! EXACT NUMBER 1,005,545!!!!!!!!!!!!!” stated the following:

CONGRATS TO MY HOMIE WAYNE. I’M HAPPY 2 KNOW THIS GUY!!! BOW IN THE PRESENCE OF A TRUE LIVING LEGEND IN HIP HOP… LIL WAYNE THE GOD!!!

It’s unclear as to how Kanye was allowed to discover evidence of someone else’s success, as his handlers attempt to keep him unaware, so as to prevent the childish tantrums he’s known for.

The precious baby has no idea his daddy is all interested in making sweet sweet love to his mommy in the club, he just likes to hang around looking all tiny and cute. We love him! Finally Tameka did something right – maybe we judged her too quickly?

50 Cent Battling Ex Over Kid

Ugh. What aren’t Fiddy and his ex fighting about these days? After accusing the rapper of torching her house earlier this Spring, Shaniqua Tompkins stopped allowing 50 Cent access to the couple’s 11-year old son. Fiddy supposedly sent his kid, Marquise, a new cell phone after his previous one was destroyed in the house fire, but Shaniqua has not allowed him to use it. Drama! The hip hop mogul is also accusing his ex-lady of monitoring calls to his son. Blah blah blah custody drama and fighting blah blah blah. Shouldn’t these two at least TRY to get along? Not for us, but for their kid. Please! [NYDN]

Diddy Loves Waxing Down There

Cue the sexy music, ladies. Diddy loves manscaping, and he doesn’t mess around. “While I’m getting ready I like to relax with a drink ? vodka and lemonade ? and listen to some James Brown,” Diddy tells Metro UK. Damn that sounds kinda hot! What else does Diddy do to prepare for a big night on the town? “Then I’ll have a manicure and pedicure ? and yes, I wax as well,” he says (hmmm, interesting). “Men owe it to women to make sure they are well-groomed. I wax my privates. I also wear my fragrance, Unforgivable Black.”

Wait, what did Puffy just say?

“I WAX MY PRIVATES.”

Yep, Sean John’s bare down there. Ladies – hot or not?

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.?
