Late Friday afternoon, word broke that Ray J was about to release “I Hit It First,” a new track that put his (s)ex Kim Kardashian on blast. We all know that Ray J almost certainly can’t back up that specific claim, but he’s not letting that stop him. Today, he released a 30-second snippet of the song to TMZ; you can listen to it above.
In what is surely the silliest news of the day, Ray J made a surprise announcement this afternoon that he’s got a new single on the way. Dropping April 9, the artwork for “I Hit It First” has got everyone on Twitter wondering who exactly that mystery, pixelated figure on the cover is. We’ll give you one guess!
Fairytales do come true in their own time. Fifteen years ago 60 million viewers tuned in to watch a young Brandy play Cinderella in the television adaptation of the Disney cartoon movie. For Brandy, real life is far greater than the Cinderella story. A newly engaged Brandy was glowing on New Year’s in Vegas when she chatted with PopStop TV about her engagement to Ryan Press. The R&B beauty also had some advice for Kim Kardashian on motherhood. Read more…
“I never was much of a romantic,” sang Kanye West on “Runaway,” the centerpiece track on his epic 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Well nonsense, we say! You’re plenty romantic, Yeezy. And here are our favorite love-lorn lyrics from all through your career to prove it. Whether it was inspired by current flame Kim Kardashian, or past lady-friends like Amber Rose or Selita Ebanks, Kanye is a modern poet spinning rhymes that will melt any woman’s heart. Just today he dropped the track “Clique,” in which he raps about Kim’s career-launching sex-tape with Ray-J. And that’s just the start of his many romantic maneuvers in song. Check out the list below and see what we mean!
10. “If we die in each others’ arms/Still get laid in the afterlife”
- “Lost In The World” on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010)
Romance Factor: Here Kanye takes a very practical (and sexy) look at the concept of eternity.
9. “I’m Yeezy, she said, ‘Hi, I’m Maria’/No, you an angel/You wave ‘Hi’ to Aaliyah”
-”Erase Me” on Kid Kudi’s Man On The Moon 2: The Legend Of Mr. Rager (2010)
Romance Factor: Yeezy once again plays on the more practical side of the afterlife, plus gets a sweet shout-out to the late R&B singer.
8. “Feeling like Katrina with no FEMA/Like Martin with no Gina”
-”Flashing Lights” on Graduation (2007)
Romance Factor: It’s not good enough to compare missing your ladylove to a natural disaster/government SNAFU. You have to following it up with a simile referencing the 90s sitcom Martin to really tug at the heartstrings.
7. “Take your diamonds and throw ‘em up like you’re bulimic”
-”Diamonds From Sierra Leone” on Late Registration (2005)
Romance Factor: With one line, Kanye shows that he knows how to treat his woman right, and at the same time so very very wrong.
Our favorite fun-fact packed music video show Pop Up Video is back, bloops and all, weekday afternoons at 12/11c on VH1! They kicked the season off with the lowdown on Katy Perry’s boozy “The One That Got Away” set. And it looks like they’re just getting warmed up with all the snark-filled glory. A little birdie told me Green Day, The Black Keys, Janet Jackson, Flo Rida and a little “Sexy Can I” Ray J action are just a few of the stars getting their turn in the hot seat in upcoming episodes.
So, in honor of the return of the show that has made me the queen of pop culture trivia over the years, I used the fabulous create-your-own Pop Up Video player to add some fun facts (read: I found them on Wiki and made the rest up) to All-4-One’s “I Can Love You Like That.” I passed it along to my friends on Facebook and Twitter, who added their own comments. Hilarity ensued. And, because we know you’re as hungry for some 1990s R&B smooth grooves as Anne Hathaway was for food while she was on that Les Miserable diet, check out our video above and add your own Pop Ups. Then head over to popup.vh1.com, if you’re feeling inspired, and show us what you’ve got.
Ray J is desperate for his own music career, but is always overshadowed by his big sis Brandy, his sex tape partner Kim Kardashian, and his menopausal sugar mama, Whitney Houston. But finally the young star has done something to garner attention all by himself! Too bad it involves some seriously sketchy drugs. The singer was allegedly kicked out of his DC hotel this weekend, after Hyatt security received complaints about partying in his room. Spies report back that Ray J was allegedly in possession of weed and something called boat, which might be PCP? The cops didn’t press charges, but the hotel did boot Ray J after he tried to bribe the staff to let him stay. His own security hand to come haul him off! How diva-like! If only he had a career that matched his attitude.

Would you date a dude who had made a kinky sex tape that was seen all over the internet? If your answer is yes, don’t be ashamed – Whitney Houston did, for a second, and now it appears that Lil Kim has fallen under Ray J’s scandal-making spell. He recently treated the pint size rap starlet to a $20,000 shopping spree (let’s hope no pasties were purchased), and just this weekend the pair walked the red carpet together at the Rodeo Drive Experience event in Beverly Hills. They were also photographed last month cuddling after celebrating the Queen Bee’s B-Day, and were caught again this weekend hitting the clubs with Ray J’s sis Brandy.
