Hip-hop head honcho Karrine Steffans is on the cusp of releasing another tell-all (The Vixen Diaries hits stores September 25), which means she’s flapping her notorious lips to whomever will listen for the sake of promotion. In this particular case, the woman best known as Superhead, dishes on her…arrangement with Lil’ Wayne in a cover story for the September issue of King. The secret of their mutual arrangement? He’s ugly and she digs it! Says Karrine:
"I always thought he was ugly…One day I Googled Lil Wayne to see what he looked like now. I was like, ‘Oh.’ The memory I had of him was this young kid coming into himself. I started listening to his music and saw that he grew into his ugliness. I don’t like cutesy-tootsie guys, I like a dude that’s a little bit ugly. I don’t want no fine ass…I don’t need no baby hair or your sideburns to be looking like a swirl."
Wow. Lil Wayne overcame ugliness only to land a woman who’s slept with everybody and their favorite rapper! Inspiring! Hip-hop hasn’t seen a triumph of the human spirit this moving since Ma$e learned to talk through rapping. [Image credit: Getty]
X17 has posted of a video (and pics!) of Brit driving away from a store blasting what sources say is a new tune from the washed up pop starlet. While it certainly is exciting to hear ten seconds of Britney moaning "Yeahhhh" over beats, the real magic happen inside the store when she realizes she’s about to be accosted by a paparazzi swarm. After appearing shocked by the onslaught of cameras, she exits the vitamin shop while groaning like a dying (but still sassy) lamb about to be butchered. It is both hilarious and horrifying at the same time – and 100% Britney. Something tells me this is how she and her sons communicate at home. One dead sheep groan means "It’s time to change your diaper," and two groans roughly translates into " Get mommy her damn cigarettes, you idiot!"
More pics of Britney making the "Holy eff I’m horrified by the paparazzi – but look at my sexy pink bikini shirt!" face can be found here.

Terror Squad rapper Remy Ma has lived up to her violent reputation, turning herself over to police yesterday after being accused of shooting one of her best friends on Friday night. According to the victim, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, the two were out partying in New York City’s Meatpacking District (which, for those of you who’ve been, is this story’s first mistake). Remy asked Makeda to hold her purse, and when Makeda handed it back to her, Remy thought that her wallet felt a bit light. So she allegedly shot Makeda twice, dumped Makeda’s purse out and started going through the contents. "What hurts me is that when she shot me she went over and dumped the bag," Maked told The New York Daily News. "She didn’t even say, ‘Oh my God, I just shot her.’"
The Mean Girl is finally free! After 45 days of rehab (complete with MySpace love letters, a birthday party in bad shoes, and lots of AA meetings) Lindsay Lohan has walked out of Promises Treatment Facility a clean woman. And where did she immediately head to celebrate her sobriety? Las Vegas. But don’t you worry – LiLo may have hit up nightclub Pure to celebrate her assistant’s birthday, but there was only water and Red Bull on hand for the rehabbed starlet. And to convince you doubters out there, Linds is going to be sporting an alcohol monitoring bracelet (which conveniently does not track cocaine snortage) as proof that she’s staying sober when surrounded by booze.
The starlet is beginning her new outpatient treatment with drama already on the horizon. In an online chat with blogger CelebSlam, a p*ssed off LiLo revealed that naked photos of her taken by Calum Best have been stolen off her computer and that she’s got her lawyers on the job. Poor Lindsay – millions of dollars in the bank and yet she can’t seem to find a hacker-proof computer. Still, can’t we just leave the starlet alone for a second so she can get her sh*t straightened out? If she has some space she’s sure to do something uber-insane again. And really, how much more bare, freckled skin do we need to see?

Jermaine Dupri has revealed that his girlfriend Janet Jackson is following in his footsteps by moving from Virgin Records (where Jermaine was the president of the urban-music department and where Janet has been releasing records since 1993′s janet.) to Island Def Jam. Unlike with Janet’s flop 2006 album 20 Y.O., Jermaine, now the president of Island Records Urban Music, says he’s keeping his hands off her next album:
“She’s on Island, but it’s more or less [Def Jam CEO Antonio "L.A." Reid's] project. I let him deal with that on a day-to-day basis…I don’t really know what he’s got in mind at this point. His past record isn’t shabby so I’m going to let him do what he’s going to do. I’m going to do [the new] Mariah [Carey album], and we’re going to make it seem like we’re in competition to see who’s going to have the biggest album of the year.“
While the release of Janet’s next disc is as yet unknown, Mariah’s follow-up to The Emancipation of Mimi has been tapped for a Nov. 20 release. The two titan divas going head-to-head is an exciting prospect, however, I get the feeling that this could all be settled with a few rounds of mud wrestling or foxy boxing. They both have the boobs for it.
But really, Jermaine is widely blamed for the failure of 20 Y.O. His lack of involvement could be the best thing for Janet’s career since

There’s no trust left in this crumbled marriage. Both Britney and Kevin have allegedly hired private investigators to dig up dirt to use against each other in their messy custody battle. And though it would be adorable and we’re sure Brit considered it – the snoops are not Jayden James and Sean Preston. So what have they learned? According to Kevin’s spy, Britney has a booze runner who goes out and picks up her bottles so no one spots her at the liquor store. Now this IS something she’s having her kids do, natch. She also reportedly walks around the house naked and doesn’t care who sees her. Come on Kev - is anyone really looking?
The naked pop star got a big pile of dirt on her ex too. Her spy reportedly says K-Fed boozes with pals, smokes mounds of marijuana, and brings home ladies galore for one night stands. How fatherly! This is parenting at its best, folks. The judge in their custody battle should do the right thing and just keep those two kids for himself. It’s doubtful Sean and JJ enjoy being shuttled between CheetoLand and the poor man’s Playboy mansion. Poor little tots. Now go get Mommy some Schnapps! [Splash News]

In what appears to be a regular column, Kelis gets her post-Imus discourse on in the latest issue of the newish, hip lass mag Missbehave. The piece titled "Kelis On…Name Calling," finds Mrs. Nas raging against political correctness. "If everyone just said what they thought, maybe we could move on, get past it all and really be free," Kelis writes in one of her more reasoned statements. One to practice what she preaches, Kelis indeed says what she thinks throughout the piece, taking an extreme stance to seemingly prove a point. "How about if a straight man calls another straight man ‘faggot?’" she wonders. "Is it more offensive if the man is gay?" That probably can only be answered on a case-to-case basis: does it hurt more as a gay man to be talked about behind your back or to your face?
Her most outrageous statement, however concerns our very own commander-in-chief.
