Awwww. It’s so nice to get normal celeb news now and then, and Timbaland has totally come through! The rapper/producer married his girlfriend Monique Idlett this weekend in front of 300 guests in Aruba. Lots of famous friends showed up to honor the couple – Missy Elliot, Omarion, Keri Hilson – and Timbaland’s sons walked the bride down the aisle and served as the ringer bearer, respectively. How cute is that? The couple have one daughter together named Reign (like a king) who was born in November.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled crazy. [Us]
Holy crap. Have you ever met at 24-year old suffering from the early stages of emphysema? Now you have! Wino is still hospitalized after fainting last week, and she’s frankly not doing well at all. Her dad Mitch – the Joe Simpson of London – told the Daily Mail that, “With smoking the crack cocaine and the cigarettes her lungs are all gunked up. There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She’s got 70 per cent lung capacity. ” If that sounds bad, it is. “The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs, it won’t just ruin her voice,” sez Dad.” It will kill her.”
Amy is scheduled to perform at Nelson Mandela‘s 90th birthday concert, and is so determined to be there that she may do the show with medics on hand. If only she showed that much commitment to quitting crack!
What’s a controversy without commentary from Kanye West? The biggest ego in hip-hop took to his blog to weigh in on the new beef between veteran rapper Ice-T and newcomer Soulja Boy, and Mr. West is all about the teen in this tit-for-tat. Who woulda thought? Kanye even compares the Southern kid to Nas, which is a pretty hardcore hip-hop compliment. However we imagine that had Soulja Boy beat out Kanye for that Best Rap Song Grammy, he may be singing a different tune. His full blog post is below.
Soulja boy is fresh ass hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip hop is sposed to be. He came from the hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound and a new dance with one song. He had all of America rapping this summer. If that ain’t Hip Hop then what is? A bunch of wannabe keep it real rappers that ain’t even relevant, recycling samples trying to act like it’s 96 again and all they do is hate on new sh*t? N*ggas always talk about the golden age but for a 13 year old kid, this is the golden age!!! That song was so dope cause everything he said had a hidden meaning… that’s Nas level sh*t… he just put it over some steel drums which is also some Nas sh*t if you had the 2nd album cassette with the bonus track “Silent Murder” on it. In closing… new n*ggas get ya money$$$$$$$$$$ Keep this shit fresh and original…. ain’t no f*ckin’ rules to this sh*t and that’s what real hip hop is to me.
It seems like Diddy has a different A-list hottie on his arm each month. We thought women were attracted to him because he’s a super-savvy businessman who throws great parties and practices tantric sex. But we didn’t know that he had another trick up his pants sleeve: waxed privates! Diddy has played the field for so long that it’s hard to keep track of his sex buddies. Can you guess which of the women below have had contact with Diddy’s immaculately groomed body? Click each thumbnail for answers.
Rihanna looks ridiculous yet still manages to be hot. Not fair. [DListed]
Matthew Broderick and SJP‘s kid is already curious about smoking. Nice parenting, guys! [ICYDK]
Even though some think he’s hot, Mario Lopez continues to gross us out. [Seriously? OMG! WTF?]
Lindsay Lohan is super skinny and wants us all to know it. [WWTDD]
Do you think Matthew McConaughey can say his last name when he’s hammered? [IDLYITW]
Keyshia Coles looks adorable! [Bossip]
Katie Holmes sent Nicole Kidman a baby gift. Mrs. Tom Cruises, unite! [JustJared]
Ouch. Fiddy‘s ex Shaniqua Tompkins just scored a big victory in her battle against her baby daddy. She asked for and received a restraining order against the rapper, which means he will have to “forfeit any guns and other firearms.” When visiting his 11-year old sun he must pick him up at “curbside,” and may not be in the same location as Shaniqua at any time. Next up: Tompkins and her lawyer will be in court next month pushing for a permanent restraining order against 50 Cent. Everyone should just make their lives a lot easier and give up dating once and for all!
Who needs this kinda sh*t, right?
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]
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?
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?
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!
