Mimi’s Sham Marriage Already a Disaster

Mimi better watch who she’s bossing around! Apparently pals (she has friends?!) close to the singing star are placing bets on how long her marriage to Nick Cannon will last, and they’re guessing “six months, tops.” The reason? Nick is stuck doting on his bride 24/7, and allegedly spends more time lugging her shopping bags around than he does cuddling with his older love. A source spills that,

“Mariah?s assistants and friends call him ?Whipped Nick? behind his back. They have little respect for him because he won?t stand up for himself.?

Well if he won’t, we will! Mariah, leave your man alone! Otherwise he’ll be leaving you – and fast. [MSNBC]

Simmons Kids Snag a Sh*t Load of Russell’s Cash

Our favorite almost-divorced couple is finally working out the kinks of their divorce settlement, and Kimora Lee Simmons is walking away with a phat wad of ex-hubby Russell‘s cash. Well, not Kimora exactly – their kids. Yep, each girl – Ming Lee, 8, and Aoki, 5 – will get $20,000 a month from their dad until they turn 18. That adds up to $480,000 a year for each kid – who already spend their lives living large in a $24 million mansion in New Jersey.

In case you forgot, the still amicable pair divorced after nine years of marriage. Kimora is now dating super-hot actor Djimon Hounsou, while Russ keeps busy doing yoga with model Porschla Coleman. [NYDN]

Thanks Daddy!

Kanye West’s Blog Breakdown

Is there anything more enjoyable to read than a Kanye West blog post freak out? Yeah, we thought not. The latest rant from your favorite fashion/music/ridiculous sunglasses icon about criticism from fans that he went on too late at Bonnaroo a couple of weeks ago is perhaps his finest work. A masterpiece of crazy blogging! Amazingly, this is just a tiny bit of the 700+ word rant. Get ready to be blinded by explanation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall… Why???? I understand if people don’t like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much, But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I’ve ever had in my life. This is the most offended I’ve ever been… this is the maddest I ever will be. I’m typing so f*cking hard I might break my f*cking Mac book Air!!!!!!!! Call me any name you want…. arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro, f*g whatever you can think of…. BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL! NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL!…I HAVE A F*CKING LIGHT SHOW DUMB ASS, IT’S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS! MY PEOPLE WORKED OUT A COMPROMISED STAGE PLOT AND A 3AM TIME SLOT AND I AGREED. FAST FOWARD TO THE DAY OF THE SHOW. MY PRODUCTION MANAGER TRIED TO LOAD IN FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE I WENT ON STAGE BUT THE FESTIVAL WOULDN’T ALLOW US TO DO ANYTHING UNTILL PEARL JAM LEFT THE STAGE. PEARL JAM ENDED ONE HOUR LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT THAT POINT WE’RE RACING AGAINST THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ice-T Apologizes to Soulja Boy, Then Calls His Music “Garbage”

Here we go again. Ice-T set up his video camera, pressed record, and went on a four-minute rant against his new enemy, Soulja Boy. Ice started by apologizing for telling him to “eat a dick” on that now infamous mixtape, but then went on to call his music garbage, and threatened ramifications “from hip-hop.” Ice was also pissed that Soulja Boy didn’t just shut up and accept his beef, telling the youngin’ “you supposed to take that” and instructed him to “respect your elders.” So what’s next in this battle of young vs. old? Ice is betting on a hip-hop war – not like the gruesome fights between east coast and west coast, but rather “good hip-hop vs. wack hip-hop.” You can probably imagine which side Ice thinks he’ll be fightin’ for.

Our favorite part of the 4 minute rant is the cameo by Ice-T’s 16-year old son, who tells his peer Soulja Boy to - what else – eat a dick.

Peep the clip above, and turn your volume down, Ice’s language is seriously NSFW. Obviously. [Via YBF]

Timbaland Ties the Knot

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]

Kanye Sides with Soulja Boy in Ice-T Beef

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.
