On Saturday we learned the happy news that Kanye West and his babymama welcomed the birth of a baby girl whose name has yet to be announced. Actually, rumor has it that the couple are having “difficulty” deciding on a name for their daughter because of a difference of opinion … but rumors like this tend to be grossly over-exaggerated or completely false. As soon as news of the baby’s birth was announced, an onslaught of congratulations came pouring in … including a personal note of congrats from Beyoncé herself. More »
"Me and him got one of the craziest records ever made"
So … is the world ready for Gucci Manson? Cuz … it sounds like we are in for a very interesting treat from BFFs Gucci Mane and Marilyn Manson who have collaborated together on a new track. In a new interview out this week, Gucci Mane reveals that he and MM are super close friends and they have come up with “one of the craziest records ever made” called Fancy Bitch. Now, normally I wouldn’t put much stock in this seeming exaggeration but … knowing how these two guys work, I think I can believe that they have come up with something crazy. Click below to read more of Gucci‘s comments on his collab with Manson and check out a photo of the buys in the studio. More »
Help is on the way?
Earlier today we learned that Amanda Bynes decided to launch a new attack on model Chrissy Teigen by calling her “an ugly old model” just a day after Bynes launched an attack on Courtney Love who deigned to reach out and offer a bit of friendly advice (I know, C. Love offering advice … I’m still having a hard time processing but … whatevs). It turns out that Courtney seems pretty intent on offering Amanda as much help as she can, particularly because Courtney says that she’s “been in [her] shoes”. Additionally, actress Alyssa Milano has piped up and reached out to Courtney so that the pair of them might possibly help Amanda as a team with whatever is going on with her. It’s kind of getting convoluted but read on and let’s see if we can sort it all out. More »
This is NOT a Destiny's Child Song
“Ladies, y’all wanna do it again?” This is the opening line of a new Kelly Rowland song titled You’ve Changed that features her former Destiny’s Child groupmates Beyoncé Knowles and Michelle Williams. Make no mistake, tho, this new song is NOT a D. Child song … it’s a song that will be featured on Kelly‘s new album Talk a Good Game, due out next month. As I understand it, the song was recorded by the ladies separately … that is, each singer recorded her vocals in the studio and then the song was put together afterward. Click below to give the song a listen and hear what it sounds like to have Kelly Rowland backed-up by Bey and Michelle. More »
So … earlier today we learned that Justin Bieber got his ass booed at after his acceptance speech at the Billboard Music Awards last night, seemingly because folks have grown tired of his annoying behavior. It would appear that his fellow tween popstar peers have also grown a bit tired of the lad and his shenanigans. Video was captured backstage at the Billboard Music Awards that shows The Biebs smooching up on his on-again girlfriend Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift‘s reaction to seeing the kiss up close. LOL. The video is a MUST SEE to brighten up your day. Check it out below. More »
Madonna was among the celebs in attendance at the MET Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute last night and she rubbed elbows with quite a few famous folk who were clamoring to just be near her. Frank Ocean was one of those famous folk who got to hang out with Madonna and it looked like the both of them enjoyed one another’s company very much. The pair posed for photos together all night long, you can see some of them below. More »
"Chris Kelly was my Best Friend. He was like a brother."
Yesterday we learned the very tragic news that Chris Kelly, one half of the 90s duo Kriss Kross, passed away at the far too young age of 34. Today we hear from Kelly‘s musical partner Chris Smith about the death of his friend. Naturally, having to release a statement about the death of a loved one is never easy but I think the nice things that Smith had to say about Kelly are worth passing along. Click below to read the full text of Chris Smith‘s official statement about the death of Chris Kelly. More »
“She is just living her life"
While Amanda Bynes‘s erratic and odd behavior has been a cause of concern for many, actress Nikki Blonksy tells In Touch Weekly magazine that there is nothing wrong with her friend at all. Blonsky and Bynes co-starred in the film adaptation of Hairspray and have, apparently, remained close. Nikki says she is in constant contact with Amanda and she sees absolutely nothing wrong with Amanda‘s behavior … at all. Just last night, Amanda started posting creepy photoshopped photos of herself which doesn’t really mean anything bad … under normal circumstances. But coupled with Amanda‘s recent odd behavior, I can’t help but see this latest behavior as just more of the same worrisome stuff. More »
Magneto will Marry Professor X
OK … now this is pretty damn awesome. Sir Patrick Stewart, the actor famous for playing iconic TV and film characters like Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Professor Xavier in the X-Men films, is getting married … and he asked none other than his BFF and co-star Sir Ian McKellan (Magneto, also in the X-Men films) to officiate at the wedding. According to reports, McKellen has officiated other weddings before but I believe Stewart‘s nuptials will be his most high profile. I mean … c’mon, is this not the coolest thing you’ve ever heard EVER in your life?! More »
"spoiler alert" / JUSTIN CONFIRMS
Justin Timberlake will release his new 10-track album The 20/20 Experience tomorrow but his BFF ?uestlove has spilled the beans that JT will be releasing a second album later this year. According to ?uest, another 10-track album will be released in November … which will equal in 2 volumes the 20/20 experience. Thus far, there has been no official confirmation from Timberlake that another album is due out later this year … but considering how close ?uestlove is to JT, I’d bet good money he’s 100% right about this supposed second album.
