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.
Blink and you’ll miss it, but in this new video sneak peak for an Usher photoshoot there are a few quick shots of the most adorable little man in the world, Usher Raymond V! 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?
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]
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 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 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.
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]
Any Winehouse fainted today and is being hospitalized. Gee, we wonder why? [Seriously? OMG!]
Katherine Heigl has pissed off TV writers and fans alike, after she withdrew herself from the Emmy race because she feels she wasn’t “given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination.” Get over yourself, Heig-y! [IDLYITW]
Joel Madden didn’t marry Nicole Richie, and he’s got the blog entry to prove it. [ICYDK]
OMG, Jessica Simpson eats meat ya’ll! We get it – you’re from Texas. [PopCrunch]
David Letterman destroyed Spencer Pratt on his show. Think it’ll land him a date with Lauren? [WWTDD]
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.
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?
