10:20: I’m thinking Mary J’s Chevy tune is hipper than T.I.‘s Chevy tune.

10:24: Diddy rocking Teddy. If you think he’s red-zoning, punch up “My Prerogative” and pretend you’re back in the Arsenio era.

10: 50: Anyone here ever mix that wild style mess that Tracy just talked about? Ketchup?

10:59: Lots of old school everything in the Wild Style nod, but leave it to KRS-One to bring Jena 6 into the action.

11:07: Brooklyn is in the house. What’s the cooler WHODINI joint, “Friends” or “Freaks”?

11:11: How many Mr. Magic fans out there? Give mom a call and find out what the story is.

Phife Dawg Fights the Good Fight

A Tribe Called Quest is being celebrated for their ingenuity and creativity tonight on Hip Hop Honors, but one of its members, Phife Dawg, gets extra respect for the courage he’s brought to his battle against diabetes. The ailment afflicts a big chunk of the African American population; reports tell us that 13 percent of blacks over the age of 20 suffer with the condition. Phife, one of the Tribe’s founding members, is fighting the condition with dialysis, and a recent switch in treatments has made him feel much better, one of the reasons he was able to participate in the Honors show.

Diddy Wants to be a Daddy – Again

by (@katespencer)

diddy1008.jpgDiddy should maybe consider going back to the name Puff Daddy, seeing as he’s got more babies than he does bling these days. The hip hop mogul just officially added another kid to his brood, 15-month old Chance. Diddy fathered the little girl with Atlanta-based hottie Sarah Chapman, and the baby was born while his live-in girlfriend Kim Porter was pregnant with their twins D’Lila Star and Jessie James. DNA tests have confirmed that Chance is indeed a Combs kid, and Diddy has now said, “At first, I wasn’t sure if this was my child. Now that it has become clear she is, I will take care of her for the rest of her life.”

Isn’t Chance lucky? She probably already has a fridge of Cristal chilling in preparation for her 21st birthday. Her crib is now encrusted with diamonds. The next Making the Band boys will have to walk to Atlanta just to bring her cheesecake from Brooklyn. Maybe Diddy has room for another kid to add to his pack? Sure I’m not related by blood or anything, but I’m really well behaved, look adorable in Sean John clothing and appreciate the value of a (thousand) dollar(s). Think about it Diddy! I mean – Daddy.

Brit Runs for the Border After Intervention

by (@katespencer)

What did the Spears Clan have in store for this wonderful weekend?

  • Thursday morning: Britney blows of her kid’s visit because she didn’t want a parenting coach present. Mothering at its best!
  • Friday night: Mom Spears and Sister Spears arrive in LA to visit Crazy Spears
  • 3 AM Saturday morning: The Spears women reunite and cry, hug, eat – repeat.
  • Saturday afternoon: Mama, Sister and Fed-Ex gather at Brit’s house for an apparent intervention. Brit runs out at around 7PM and drives around LA all night like a lunatic
  • Saturday night: Brit and her Sis head out to Taco Bell for girl talk and farts. Intervention forgotten!?
  • Sunday afternoon: Britney and Jamie-Lynn get in a fight with a crazy woman and it’s all caught on tape! Check it out above. The price these poor celebs pay for their Starbucks addictions.
  • Sunday night: Mama Spears cooks the whole gang a dinner! Did that intervention even ever happen? Maybe it was just about her outfits. No more t-shirts as dresses!

Will The Real Snoop Please Stand Up?

by

Snoop DoggWhen you get next to a superhero like Snoop Dogg, you just naturally start taking on some of his mannerisms. The king of South Central has a distinct fashion style (Willie Nelson is the only other pop dude sporting pigtails, right?) and a lingo all his own. No wonder Nelly, Bow Wow, Q-Tip, Ciara, , LL, Tracy Morgan and others took a shot a doing their best Snoop impersonation at our Hip-Hop Honors show. Crackalacka, nephew – check out these clips.

Which one does the best job?

B and her group of girls got down at an NYC burlesque show. So this is why Jay likes her. [NYP]

J.Lo Keeps Baby Bump Under Wraps
J. Lo stayed silent on her rumored pregnancy and chose only to belt out songs at her NYC show. An announcement on that baby bump probably would’ve sounded better. [NYDN]

Britney Goin? Broke
Brit’s blowing through her cash stash like a pile of good nose candy. Maybe it’s time to put down the tacos and go back to work. [NYP]

Christina Gets Ready for Baby
The singer and her hubby registered for baby goods over the weekend and they adorably rubbed her belly the whole time. So when is she gonna reveal her pregnancy? We can’t buy her gifts until she does! [People]

Paris is a Party Hog
Big surprise – the heiress took over the mic and her sister’s b-day bash like it was her own shindig. Is it possible that jail actually made Paris a worse human being? [TMZ]

Jamie Foxx wears clip on earrings. It’s bling for grandmothers – and Oscar winning playboys. [DListed]

Heather Graham bravely poses in a bikini on a mag cover with a mysterious shadow on her thigh. Girlfriend’s got balls – literally! [CityRag]

Is she melting? Courtney Love‘s face looks like a mushy bowl of dip. Pass the crackers. [Seriously? OMG! WTF?]

Ice-T’s wife CoCo makes us coo coo for something. Maybe her booty? [DListed]

Ice T – Keep The ‘N’ Word To Yourself

by

Ice-T
Rappers have never been afraid to put their opinions out there, and last night at our Hip-Hop Honors show, after helping celebrate his South Central bud Snoop Dogg, Ice T answered a volley of queries from the press, passionately erupting on a number of subjects. The most compelling flurry had to do with names – the way we identify ourselves and each other. Delivered in a lightning bolt speed, it was an impressive spiel, And it went a little sumpun like this…

N*gga?s not a bad word. My father said n*gga, so I?m not gonna get rid of the word. It has no relevance. I feel there are inside words and outside words. If you?re gay, you can say gay stuff, if you ain?t gay, don?t talk about it. If you?re fat, don?t talk about nobody skinny. If you?re skinny, don?t talk fat. If you Italian, same thing. I come from the hood where n*ggas is, so I can say n*gga. But if you ain?t from that, don?t say that. You dig?

Britney Cries Into Her Quesadillas

by (@katespencer)

lolbrit.jpgWell, you’re about to hear it straight from the ho(rse)’s mouth. Britney says she is: “So happy!” She asks us, “What would I have to be sad about?” Also, she wants you to know: “Quesadillas!”

That’s what the sad singer revealed as she chatted away aimlessly to the paparazzi last night as she left a Mexican restaurant in LA. Surely she is smart enough to be throwing down a little sarcasm when the paps ask why she’s upset. She had been spotted crying earlier in the day and almost had a meltdown at a movie theater, so we’re gonna guess that’s she’s teetering on the brink. Before she hopped in her car she hooted, “Party on me!” What kind of celebration could she be inviting people too?

  • Ya’ll my kids are finally the hell outta my house party!
  • Check it out ya’ll, I’m wearin’ new boots party!
  • My hairs extensions is lookin’ real today ya’ll party!
  • It’s 6AM and I just ya’ll had McDonalds party!
