Diddy Sean John Puffy Puff Daddy is BACK! Who cares, right? Well, Diddy does. He’s reclaimed his former monniker via a rap on the “Check Your Coat” remix by his ex-stylist O’Neal McKnight. “They call me Puff Daddy… he’s back,” says Diddy, announcing the official name change. He then took to his Myspace to plug to song and reiterated the return of the Puff, writing, “This is your boy Puff Daddy!!! Yes Puffy Daddy, the King of the Remix…”
Meh. We like the King of Desperation better.
“I told them to go home and make babies.”
Yep, that’s the always wise Snoop Dogg, on his instructions for Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s post-wedding life. The guy’s been married for-like-EVER (ten years, three kids!), so he should know. He also offered this tidbit of advice on how to make your nuptials last: “Communication, and being able to fight and get back up. To have misunderstanding and [then] get some understanding.”
For shizzle, dawg. [People]
So much Bobby Brown news, so little time! Let’s break this down nice and easy.
1. Bobby’s claiming Usher ripped him off.
In his new autobiography, the New Edition star accuses Usher of stealing his style. “I’ve always considered myself ‘The King of Stage.’ To this very day, I still don’t think anyone can get with me on the stage. I own the stage,” the ego-less Brown writes. “I watched one of Usher’s shows and he basically did my whole show. It was as if it was me on stage. The thing about it is, I love seeing that. It’s a compliment to me as a performer.”
2. Bobby’s son Landon says Whitney was a “nightmare” to grow up with, and that he replaced Kevin Coster as her bodyguard.
Not only did Whit alleged force Landon to sleep in a guest house and kept him away from his half-sister Bobbi Kristina, she treated him more like staff than family. He says, “She decided to turn me into one of her security personnel. I was a teenager but I was walking around dressed up in all black with a Security shirt and she?d have me work for her. I was just another one of her staff.?
3. When not protecting Whitney, Landon boned Lindsay Lohan in a bathroom stall.
We’re sure this was exciting for the younger Brown, but let’s be real – who hasn’t been with LiLo on a toilet? He claims: “Me and Lindsay got really, really close. She followed me to the bathroom during a private party, and, well, we basically got together. I think she knew who I was when she first saw me. We were just staring at each other and she walked by. I walked into the bathroom and she followed me in.”
We don’t quite buy the claim that Lindsay knew who Landon was when she saw him (he’s got the same ego as his Pops!), but we bet she does now!
Woohoo! Ashanti, who performed on Good Morning America this morning to promote her new album, is clearly psyched by how damn good she looks. She’s almost as pumped as former famous dude Ja Rule is about now singing in her shadow. Ouch.
Ashanti’s Tips for a Bangin’ Summer Body
Who said a prison sentence screws stuff up? T.I., who will begin serving a jail sentence next spring for weapons charges, is busy beefing up his career before heading behind bars. The rapper just signed a three-film deal, and will begin making a crime drama with Matt Dillon titled Bone Deep shortly. But that’s not enough! T.I.P. will also be promoting his new album Paper Trails as well as his MTV documentary style reality show. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. T.I.’s all about his future as the next Tom Cruise, telling MTV, “I’m just looking forward to continuing my success in the film industry. I want to do all kinds of movies. I want to do romantic comedies, action movies, dramas ? tons of different things.”
We’re sure jail will provide the perfect inspiration for all those future roles!
The web was buzzing yesterday over a rumor that Lil Wayne (whose new album also has mouths flapping) had checked himself into a Florida rehab. It’s not that far-fetched, seeing as Weezy often raps about his various drugs of choice and is known to be a fan of sizzurp. But a Cash Money rep’s only response to the rumor, when called, was “Hell nah.”
Meanwhile, Weezy’s ex Karrine “Superhead” Steffans sent Perez Hilton a frantic message today accusing her current boyfriend, Darius McCrary (best known as Eddie Winslow on Family Matters) of attempting to run her over with his car (among other things). Eek. Such serious stuff for the former lovers. Maybe they need each other now more than ever?
Celebrities LOVE sloppy seconds – the minute some star dumps a lover, another famous freak is there to pick up the tossed trash. It’s LA’s own little green movement: Reduce the amount of single celebs out there; Reuse each other’s exes, then Recycle them when the relationship ends! They may not be saving the planet, but they sure are saving celebs from never-ending singledom (which is obvs more important).
Kanye West is the latest celeb to score off of a rejected romance, as the rap diva’s been spotted getting cozy with Nick Cannon‘s ex-fiancee, model Selita Ebanks. The pair were cuddling at the NYC club Tenjune and attempted to discreetly exit together. “They were trying to be inconspicuous,” says a token spy, “but they were smiling and walking real close, and they hopped in a waiting car together laughing and took off.”
Even worse is Cam Diaz, who had dinner Sunday night with Jennifer Aniston‘s ex-boy toy, Paul Sculfor. Jen, as we all know, is currently busy making out with Cam’s ex John Mayer in pools across America. And with that, Hollywood waste is eliminated!
Let’s give Lil’ Kim a round of applause for actually appearing somewhat human at last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards. The girl looks good -her cute dress reveals enough without revealing too much, and she opted against makeup that matches her clothes for once! Could this possibly mean that the Queen B is on her way back to the top?
Oh snap. 50 Cent‘s baby mama is freaking out about the fire that claimed her home (and almost took her and her son’s life) last Friday, and is convinced her ex is to blame. “He tried to kill me and his own child,” Shaniqua Tompkins told the NY Post, adding, “Who do I think did it? Curtis Jackson. He threatened me on Monday that he was going to have someone visit me. My kids are in the house. Who would try to kill your own kids? He’s supposed to be all about being a gangster … that’s not a gangster, that’s a coward.”The police are still investigating the fire, even if his ex has already made up her mind about what happened. Interestingly enough, the pair allegedly “got into a violent dispute Monday during a deposition in a $50 million lawsuit she is bringing against him.” File that under ‘things that make you go hmmmmm.’?
