Ashanti Might Marry Her ‘Good Friend’ Nelly

Everyone knows that Ashanti and Nelly are a couple – and every knows that every one knows, except the lovey-dovey pair. So when Ashanti spoke about her man this weekend, she of course kept it vague and unclear, even though we all know what’s going on. “Me and Nelly, we’re good friends. We kick it ? hang out a lot,” the singer coyly revealed. “The industry is very hard, so it’s good to have fun and lighten it up.”

But wait! Ashanti kept going, and she dropped a tiny info bomb when asked he she and her man might be marrying soon. “”Oh no. Noooo! No engagement. But definitely in the future. Ha! Ha!”

Is she teasing us or telling the truth? Either way, we hope there’s a ring involved. [People]

Chris & Rihanna Make Sexy Juice Together

Chrianna, the golden couple of hip-hop that has yet to reveal their love to the public, were spotted snacking on Jamba Juice together on Friday. How romantic and normal! With everything fast food joint they visit, we love Chris and Rihanna more. And you know what they say – the couple that juices together, stays together! If only they’d just admit that they’re a couple.

West Drops Diva Performance, Crowd Chants “Kanye Sucks!”

It’s not like Kanye‘s trying to make new friends, but you’d think he’d at least go after a few new fans. But after his craptastic performance at Bonnaroo, all he got was a crowd of haters. The rap-diva had been scheduled to perform at 2:45 AM on Sunday, but didn’t take the stage for almost two hours, thanks to his ridiculous stage set that apparently takes hours to set up. Hey, if Kanye wants a fake spaceship named Jane to talk to during his show, than that’s what he’ll get! According to comedian Aziz Ansari, West even complained to the inanimate object about his love life as part of the show, saying, “I been away too long. I ain?t had a woman in so long Jane. I just need some p*ssy.? Surely that kind of performer-spaceship interaction made the wait worth it, right fans?

Once on-stage, Kanye never addressed his delayed start, and later that day angry fans banded together for a “Kanye sucks!” chant, which probably would have been more effective during his actual concert. Oh well, they were probably tired (among other things).

50 Cent Demands Rent on Ruined House

It would really suck to be 50 Cent‘s baby mama. One minute you’re fleeing your house as it’s engulfed in flames, and the next minute you’re being forced to pay rent on the leftover ashes. A judge has forced Shaniqua Tompkins to pay $4500 in unpaid rent on the ruined mansion. The former couple is locked in a legal battle over a breach of contract suit, and when the judge learned that Tompkins has refused to pay rent since May, she demanded: “She better pay it by the end of the week. Do you understand?”

Fiddy’s ex tried to win over the court’s sympathy, stating that “We lost everything. All we have is the clothes we jumped out of the window with.” But after learning that she was getting $6,700 – which includes money to rent a new place – the judge ruled with the uber-rich rapper.

Even though this pic of 50 with the Kartrashian sisters has nothing to do with this story, we had to post it anyway. BFFs!

Timberlake Shows Off His Sh*tty Personality

I have no idea who Chuck the Movie Guy is (should I?) and judging from this one video he seems like a bit of a tool, but he’s nowhere near as big of a jerk as Justin Timberlake! Watch and cringe as Chuck asks stupid question after stupid question, while JT gets more and more pissed off at the interview. You’d think with all the millions Justin’s making he could pimp his new flick without getting pissy. Guess not.

In conclusion, my heart goes out to Jessica Biel, who has to date this douche. He seems like a real barrel of laughs.

Queen Latifah’s Hearing Wedding Bells

queen-latifah.jpg

Fun with rumors time! Queen Latifah is allegedly planning on marrying her supposed longtime girlfriend Jeannette Jenkins this summer, after gay marriage is legalized in California. The only problem is that Queen’s never come out – about her sexuality or her relationship with Jenkins – so all we can do is speculate (and we do it well). The National Enquirer says that the couple is “?planning an intimate ceremony with close family and friends.? Latifah has said she would like to adopt a child, particular an American baby, and this may be the first step toward showing her commitment to Jeannette and to providing a stable home life.?

Last year Queen bought Jeannette a new Range Rover, which she had delivered as a surprise during a lunch out. Will she surprise her “trainer” this year with a diamond ring? Stay tuned! [Bossip]
