When it’s cold outside, who are you holding? (Some of ya’ll might be too young to catch that reference.) After summer, must come fall, the leaves change colors, the temperature drops and some pick that one special person to spend the winter with. For Ciara and Khloe, they’ve decided that they want that old thing back.
According to TMZ Ciara is adamant about her son having his father on his life, so the two are now living together again and working it out for the sake of 4-month old Future Zahir. As you recall the couple called off their engagements after reports circulated that Future cheated on Ciara (with his baby mother or some random depend on who you ask.) while on tour. So… umm good luck girl!
Now, as far as Khloe’s Chinese slipper phase being over… it’s now on again. Music videos, interviews, single cover artwork and showing up at La Marina together made these two the couple of the summer. It seem as the two took a brief break during the Ramadhan holiday, but the two are back on like they never missed a beat, and Khloe even has the approval of French Montana’s nephew “ZB”. Peep the video below. Continue reading →
There was a time in 2003 when the New York Times wrote an article about whom the leading ladies of R&B were of the time, the article praised Ashanti after her 2002 self-titled debut album and said that she would take over the music game and put Blu Cantrell in second place, this was in between her hit single “Hit Em Up Style” and her flopped second album and the article said that Beyonce’s first album “Dangerously In Love” would flop…. Funny how things change in 11 years.
The most known of Jay Z ex-girlfriends, (behind Rosario Dawson, Charlie Baltimore and Aaliyah if you believe the rumors that they were dating in ’99.) since she’s went missing from music rumors circulated that she was involved in heavy drug binges while reminiscing over Jay Z and skipping out on rent in LA. Early Wednesday morning in Santa Barbra the police were called after she went running in the streets saying that someone was trying to kill her with poison. Here’s the story according to TMZ:
Cantrell went seemingly berserk in a Santa Monica neighborhood around 2 AM on Wednesday. Witnesses tell us she was screaming about someone giving her “poisonous gas.” The episode went on long enough that someone called police.
We’re told when officers arrived, Blu — famous for her 2001 hit “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)” — played the “do you know who I am card” … but also referred to herself as a “one hit wonder.”
Law enforcement sources tell us cops took Blu to a nearby hospital where doctors checked her out. We’re attempting to reach a rep to get an update on Blu’s condition, but so far … no luck.
See, this is why you can’t smoke weed with everybody. Somebody done laced auntie Blu’s weed with some 1970’s blue magic and angel dust. Hopefully she can recover soon and get any help she may need.
Nessa girl!!! That Love & hip hop reunion the other night was something else. I was down to da bar after a long day of play rehearsal when I happened to glance at the television screen and caught a glimpse of World War III. Needless to say, I was down to the bar long enough for the re-run to come on, and got a chance to watch the show in its entirety with volume. Where many were entertained, I was saddened. It bothered me how entire hour was dedicated to the cast having a round table discussion about Joseline. Here it is, half the people on the stage don’t even get along with one another in REAL LIFE, the other half that does get a long doesn’t really talk to one another in REAL LIFE, yet they have all banded together to talk all things Joseline. No tea no shade, Kirk and Rasheeda bothered me the most. Like why the f&ck are y’all even talking? Anyway, moving on. Who failed Joseline?
Something else that rubbed me kinda sideways was the fact LHHATL and a large part of the franchise as a whole was built off the back of Joseline Hernandez. Let’s just call it what it is. Yet, Joseline was offered no level of protection. K. Michelle was given protection. Within the first 5 minutes of the season 1 reunion, K, Michelle dove on Karlie Redd, BUT Y’ALL DIDN’T SEE THAT. Granted the mess that went on was far to great to totally omit, but why was the cast given the platform to completely slaughter this woman’s character and it be aired on tv? Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not taking up for Joseline or excusing the disaster of a life that she helped create, but damn y’all. Joseline was completely thrown under the bus for an hour long. It honestly left me feeling like the “powers that be” have decided that they no longer need her, and now they are getting ready to toss her out with yesterday’s trash. I’m just feeling some kind of way because the entertainment industry can really be a mutha f&cka. It will build you up, use and abuse you, tear you down, then throw you away without hesitation. Ladies and gentlemen, you are now watching the downfall of Joseline Hernandez? So who failed Joseline Hernandez? Continue reading →
God always protect children and fools is how the old saying goes, so I guess we all shouldn’t be shocked that even though Chris Brown plead guilty to simple assault, he’s still a free man. Last time Chris Brown went to court for his Washington DC case, he rejected the plea deal,(Read: Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal, Singer Will Go To Trial In September) rumors circulated all weekend that when Chris Brown returned to DC court on September 2nd, he would take a new plea deal that the District Attorney offered.
With Karrueche by his side Chris Brown plead guilty to one count of simple assault. After the guilty plea Chris Brown said “I’m Sorry” to the judge and the court and his lawyer said that Chris’ career was derailed for the last year and he would like to go back on tour. Prosecutors told the judge that Chris Brown admitted that he punched the victim with a fist and broke his nose.
The judge gave Chris Brown credit for the two days in DC lockup as time served, he will receive no probation and has to pay a DC court fee of $150.00.The judged said today (Sept. 2nd) in court “I feel he has suffered the consequences.” He was facing 180 days in jail if he would’ve went to trial.
Chris Brown is still under mandatory drug testing twice a week for LA probation and there is still a civil suit in this DC assault case pending.
Chris Brown’s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, who was found guilty back in April for assault, is still fighting for a new trial in this case, based on new evidence. When asked about the new evidence he said “Stay tuned, there’s more to come, I want to keep you busy for a few more weeks.”
You Beygency/BeyHive children do not play any games when it comes to Beyoncé and Blue Ivy. As we reported yesterday, Karrueche Tran was a guest co-host on BET’s 106 & Park on Monday and made a tasteless joke about Blue Ivy’s hair. (Read: BET Sets Karrueche Up By Having Her Insult Blue Ivy On 106 & Park) Well, Stephen G. Hill, President of music programming and specials at BET, also creator of 106 & Park took to his twitter account to clear any confusion on what happened on Monday night’s show and to issue a public apology to the Carter Family:
Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child. We apologize publically to the child’s parents (and have done so privately) and we have taken punitive actions with those responsible. It was very bad judgment and we will serve you much better in the future. Oh and please don’t hate on Karrueche; it was NOT her fault. We also apologize to her for putting her in that position.
Karrueche (who has probably been crying her eyes out since her mentions have been taken over by Beygency and Beyhive members as well as shea butter twitter members.) took to her Instagram to formally apologize:
Past two days have been extremely draining. As I geared up for a big day for myself- hosting a live show.. I never expected things to turn out this way. I apologize to any and everyone who felt offended in any way by the comments made by BET executed through me.. I would never disrespect anyone’s child in any way and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyoncé. My comments have been in complete shambles.. yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes.. But all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot.. Definitely a lesson learned from here forth.. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies <3 #BeyHive Continue reading →
Football season is approaching and ESPN is full of preseason coverage. We all know that Michael Sam is the first openly gay player in the NFL, he was the 249th pick in this year Draft. While the story should be will Michaela Sam make the St. Louis Rams’ final roster, ESPN can’t really get over the fact that he’s a gay man working in the sport.
For some odd reason someone in the ESPN newsroom thought it would be a good idea to do a segment on Sam’s adjustment to St. Louis Rams. Josina Anderson reported from Earth City, Mo where the Rams are having training camp, before discussing Sam, she talked about various St. Louis Rams’ story and then went on to talk about how Sam is adjusting to the team. One of his teammates, Kendall Langford, said that Sam is “just one of the guys.”
For whatever reason after that Anderson decided to quote an “unnamed” Rams player discussing the same topic:
“Another Rams defensive player told me that ‘Sam is respecting our space’ and that, from his perspective, he seemed to think that Michael Sam is kind of waiting to take a shower, as not to make his teammates uncomfortable.”
Anderson shared other team memebers’ answer to her irrelevant question. Both Kendall Langford and Alec Ogletree informed the ESPN reporter they weren’t exactly tracking his shower habits.
AS. THEY. SHOULDN’T.
After backlash from sports fans and players alike (especially from Sam’s teammate Chris Long, he sent out a tweet saying Dear ESPN, Everyone but you is over it.) ESPN issued an apology for the segment in the following statement:
ESPN regrets the manner in which we presented our report…Clearly yesterday we collectively failed to meet the standards we have set in reporting on LGBT-related topics in sports.
