Lauryn Hill is back to her old ways, she has been infamous for being late to her concerts. Sometimes she can be anywhere from one to four hours late for her shows, so what made last week’s show at the House of Blues in Chicago any different? A fan publicly called her out on it and she got pissed. Reports say that Hill was set to come on at 10:30 and didn’t hit the stage until 11:20 (that’s actually good compared to her history of being late, just saying.) The fan apparently called her out and flipped her off and that’s when she asked that he be removed and refunded his money.

Lauryn said during her rant: “I don’t play that. I don’t need to win you over and you don’t need to win me over. You can go and take all your money back. I do this because I love it, not because I owe you anything. I do this because I love it and you can get on your blogs, tweet, whatever you want to. I don’t give a rat’s ass”

Girl, you don’t do it because you love it, you do it because you still owe Uncle Sam a million dollars and you don’t want to go back to jail, but I ain’t the one to gossip so…. Ya’ll know the rest.

Apparently there was a long line of people waiting to get their money back and called Hill’s performance sloppy and rushed. Check out the video of the rant below. Continue reading

Beyonce May Have Another Sibling. Second Woman Files Paternity Suit Against Mathew Knowles

Like honestly, who the hell is screwing Mathew Knowles? I’m convinced he must be sprinkling some Creole Lady Marmalade in women’s drinks when they tip off to the bathroom. Letting Mathew Knowles raw dog in your “love jones” just proves that the struggle is real. These days, people will do anything to get a small piece of Beyonce, including having babies from her old ass daddy. Much to these ladies dismay, Mathew’s Coins are drying up, and he doesn’t have much to share. Y’all better ask his first baby mamma from 2010. Y’all see that heffa was on inside edition giving us a tour of the homeless shelter she was living in.

It seems as if Mathew Knowles was really going through some things in 2010. That is the year his first love child was born, and just so happens to be the year his alleged 2nd love child was born as well. Taqoya Branscomb alleges that in 2010 Mathew Knowles fathered  her daughter in Harris County, Texas. Branscomb is using the law to try and get Mathew Knowles to take a paternity test, secure child support, and get her legal fees paid. Continue reading

Is Nicki Minaj Guilty Of Doing To Iggy Azelea What Lil Kim Did To Her?

Way back when, when Lil Kim was so fixated on running off at the mouth about then newcomer Nicki Minaj, I always felt that it was jealousy that fueled Kim’s anger. Of course you Kim stans are going to chime in with “what does Lil Kim need to be jealous of Nicki Minaj for”, and I’m with you. I think the jealousy came into play when Lil Kim realized that she was no longer hip hop’s  “it girl.” For whatever reason the rap game has grown to a place where it seems to only be able to sustain one female rapper at a time. This is very ironic consider that the same game can concurrently sustain male rappers by the double digits. In all honesty, that’s the fight female emcees need to be fighting, not each other.

During her acceptance speech at the BET Awards, Nicki Minaj took a slight dig at Iggy Azelia saying when “you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it,” At the end of the day, everyone new that she was talking about her competitor Iggy Azelia, but why? I swear rappers are some of the most immature, mentally undeveloped assholes with their constant perpetuation of gang like thinking. In 2014, what the hell is street cred? Like seriously, because someone did not write their rhymes, it doesn’t take away from their talent. Hell Whitney Houston wrote next to non of her music, yet she is still regarded as one of the greatest singers EVER! Does it strengthen an artist’s total package if they write their own music? Yes. However, if they don’t write their own music, all the same, they are still an artist. Continue reading

Y’all know every now and again BET gets it right. I guess Debra Lee finally made a right hiring decision when she hired whomever was responsible for finding “them boys.” Yes Gawd! I’ll be the first person to tell you that I went up for Silk! Troop, awwww not too much. It was good to see them, but damn them boys have aged. My ass must have been an infant when them boys where singing, judging by the way they looked. Oh and can someone please get Robin Thicke’s ole crying ass a blow up doll. If he makes one more public outcry for that ole high heffa Puala Patton, I’m going to scream.

Check out all the performance videos and let me know what you think. Continue reading

While Jay Z & Beyoncé Were “On The Run”, Miami Ticketholders Were Stuck On The Highway.

 Wednesday night the “On The Run” tour starring Jay Z and Beyoncé kicked off in Miami, the good news? The show was pretty good, the rain ended before the show began and it was fun. The bad news? A lot of ticket holders missed about half of the show being stuck in traffic on University Drive and on the Turnpike by Sun Life Stadium. If they weren’t stuck on the highway they were stuck in the parking lot of Sun Life Stadium because there were only a few people collecting money and directing traffic control at the stadium.  Don’t worry, I won’t post any tour spoilers for those who want to be surprised when they go. I’ll just give you the deets about the good, the bad and the rumors.

Back to the traffic, many were stuck in traffic for over two hours. Traffic was so bad that some ticketholders got out there car and walked.  At 8 PM the stadium was very empty, by 9 PM it was a little more full, but not to the max like the end of the show. There weren’t enough ushers escorting people to their seats, it was basically a mess.  Jay and Bey came on at 9:36, they were set to start at 8 PM. Here’s a tip for future show goers, when Beyonce says 8 PM she means 8 PM, but when Jay Z says 8 PM, he means 9:30 PM the earliest, there were some “Watch The Throne” dates where he and Kanye didn’t come on until 10 PM.

Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal, Singer Will Go To Trial In September

Chris Brown showed up in court this afternoon (June 25th) to answer the charges of assault from an October 2013 incident in Washington D.C.  in which a fan was allegedly attacked by Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy after a heated  altercation outside of the W Hotel. Back in April Hollosy was found guilty of misdemeanor assault, Hollosy planned to appeal his verdict which lead to his refusal to testify in Brown’s trial for the same assault because he didn’t want to say anything that would hurt his chances of an appeal. The trial was pushed back until June with the hopes that Brown would accept the plea deal presented by the prosecution and Brown would not have to serve any further jail time. Well, in true Christopher Maurice Brown fashion he decided to “go against the grain” (August Alsina’s voice) and reject the plea deal.

What happened?! Plea deal talks between prosecutors and Brown’s attorney went left after discussions over the “public statement” Brown would have to make in court, this statement is basically what Brown would have to admit his part was in the incident. Prosecutors wanted Brown to accept responsibility for assault, but doing so would expose him on the $3 million civil lawsuit filed by the victim, Parker Adams. Adams suffered a broken nose as well as other injuries the night of the incident and filed a civil suit for medical bills and pain and suffering. Brown and the Prosecution couldn’t agree on the facts of that October night, so a trial date has been set for September 8th, 2014. Continue reading
