Telephone: Lady GaGa & Beyonce

Oh dear, where do I start? Video starts out with GaGa getting arrested, stripped (at which point the guard says to the other guard, "I told you she didn't have a dick"). Then GaGa makes out with an, um, masculine female in the courtyard of the prison and 3 minutes into the video the song finally starts.
I forgot I was watchin a music video by this point, to be honest. After some binki-clad dancing, some very obvious product placements, enter Beyonce and Tyrese (I know, random). *sigh* Bey, just stick to singing. Oh, GaGa and Beyonce are supposed to be lesbians or Thelma and Louise or whatever. The whole thing is too random for me. That is all.
P.S. Yes Lady GaGa, we noticed you covering your eye. We get it. Now Beyonce doing ish with the one eye too though? SMH.

Monica Confirms Split from Rocko

Monica took to Twitter yesterday to reveal some sad news. Her and her children's father/rapper, Rocko, have ended their long-term relationship. Although Monica didn't reveal the reason, apparently Rocko cheated. Monica also says they will keep the details “personal” while keeping the kids first. Her statement:
Thank u everyone for all the love your sending. @Rocko4Realis a great father and we will continue to love and parent our children. The Rest is a private matter between @Rocko4Real and I. He is a good person. We all make mistakes. Even separated we will always be family. I say thank u again to u all. And as I live and learn I grow. Don’t feel sorry for me just pray for me. Gods got it. Have a great day.

Trying to Stay Relevant: Stacey Dash Edition

Stacey Dash has been attention whoring her 43-year-old self out lately everywhere from King magazine to Playboy. The latest news on the actress was that she had started dating Jamie Foxx.
Well, now the reason for all the, um, self-promotion may have been revealed. Apparently Dash is getting her own reality TV show. And she'll reveal all the details on the Wendy Williams Show today. Apparently the series is set to follow her life as a recently-divorced, single woman. Oh, and Dash will also address the relationship rumours about her and Jamie. She gets all giggly about how they're friends but then says that when the car service stopped to pick him up for their Oscar date it was like a first real date.
What's that stink? A publicity stunt.

Jay-Z Hopes to Strike Gold

Is it just me or does Jay-Z look all types of handsome in these photos? *swoooon*. I've also never seen Jigga smile this much in my life. Either way, Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce were both at the groundbreaking ceremony at Atlantic Yards yesterday. The property will be the new home of of Barclays Center, which will house the New Jersey Nets (to be renamed "Brooklyn Nets"). Jay-Z is one of the owners of the team. Big tings agwan for Illuminati Hov. I kid, I kid.

Swizz Beatz Goes In on Mashonda

If you haven't heard, three DJs from Hot97 (Enuff, Camilo and Cipha Sounds) in New York City have their own online TV show called "The Wizards", which explores their lives. In the last webisode, DJ Enuff stops by to see Swizz Beatz about his production. Cameras continue to roll as the conversation gets personal and the two start discussing Swizz Beatz's then pending divorce. Swizzy gets quite candid and actually goes in on Mashonda. You gotta fast-forward to the 2 minute mark to hear him go on about: the fact that he believes Mashonda thought she would get a TV show out of their divorce, that her actions were "clown things", that Alicia Keys is NOT the reason they broke up but rather there was problems for 10 years and one of the biggest reasons things actually ended was because Mashonda (according to Swizzy) wanted him to choose between his oldest son and her. These are some SERIOUS things! Wow. I'm kinda surprised as Swizz Beatz who is usually a very quiet person when it comes to his personal life.

She's So 3008

Kanye West's bald headed beauty, Amber Rose, stepped out yesterday in an attention-grabbing outfit. But then again, homegirl could rock a potato sack and people would still be in awe of her. LoL. Anyways, I'm lovin the shades, the leather jacket and the way the pink heels set the outfit off.

Is This What You Expected?

Kim Kardashian is usually pretty damn good at keepin her booty covered. But during her recent trip to Costa Rica with her boo Reggie Bush, the paps caught her from behind as the wind blew her booty wrap. LoL. Is it what you expected? It doesn't hold up as well as it does in the tights and jeans eh? I mean, it's expected because that's usually the case with big booty chicks, but meh. I guess I'm just not as impressed as I thought I would be.

Tyrese The Family Man

Tyrese is not letting a divorce come between spending quality (read civilized) time with his ex-wife Norma and their daughter Shyla. The trio was spotted yesterday in West Hollywood enjoying the sunny weather. I gotta say, good for Tyrese for being mature enough to not turn his divorce into a baby mama drama situation. It's a nice change from the regular ole' Hollywood bullsh*t.
P.S. Lawd, Tyrese makes some pretty babies!

Everything Old Becomes New Again...

What's up with the self-assured smirk on Bow Wow's face? Well, either he was happy to be celebrating his 23rd or he's happy to have the Rev's daughter back on his arm. The two have been spotted in a few cities together and have been tweeting @ each other a lot lately. What happened to Angela's supposed fiance? Hmmm interesting.

JHudson is Looking Wedding Ready

The paps caught Jennifer Hudson arriving at LAX yesterday. Although she looked a bit caught off guard I noticed two things about Jenny that have me convinced ole girl is ready for her wedding with Punk. 1) Her body looks better than before she had her baby. 2) That bling bling on her finger is shining extra bright. I'm happy for her, with all the terrible things Jen went through in the last few years with the death of her family members, she deserves all the happiness she has owed to her.

Our Family Wedding Premier

The stars were out last night to celebrate the release of Lance Gross and America Ferrera's movie "Our Family Wedding". Everyone from Forrest Whittaker (who plays Lance's dad in the movie) to Lance's gorgeous fiance Eva Marcelle were there. Also spotted for the first time since the tragic passing of his wife was Charlie Murphy. Everyone looked great.
P.S. I'm so gonna miss Ugly Better =(

DMX Not Happy With Paps

DMX was not to thrilled when he entered the courtroom after being arrest for violating probation. He was upset that a videographer from TMZ was in the courtroom and didn't hesitate to let the person behind the camera know, when the judge left the room that is. Dude started going off about, “I’m the only one got arrested today … f**king c**ksuckers do it every time man … I get my rights violated but I gotta be quiet about it … f**king b*tch man.”
Ummm, X....the cameraman is the least of your worries.

Ummm, Scott, WTF Is On Your Feet?

Ladies, if your man wanted to step out of the house in leopard-print slippers, would you be cool with it? Apparently Kourtney Kardashian is! LoL. Scott looked a mess in his slippers, I dont give a damn if they're YSL! Hot mess I say! On another note, doesn't Scotty remind if you of dude from "American Psycho"?!? yourself Kourt.

R.I.P. Corey Haim

You'll remember Canadian actor Corey Haim from his roles in classic movies such as "The Lost Boys", "License to Drive" and "Lucas". The actor was pronounced dead early this morning and Ed Winter of the LA coroner's office revealed some of the initial details of the Haim's death to Entertainment Tonight.
Ed tells ET that Corey woke up somewhere between 11:30 and 11:45 p.m. last night complaining of flu-like symptoms. He got out of bed, feeling weak, and fell to his knees. His mother called paramedics. He was pronounced dead at the hospital at 2:15 a.m.
Ed also says that no illegal drugs were found, but some prescription drugs have been identified. Chief Winter says the coroner has Corey's body and the investigation is ongoing.

Introducin' The New Kelis

Remember when Kelis looked like this....? And was "boss-ay"? LoL...

Wellllll, now she looks like this. And is....a silver fox? The photo, with its cool effects, is from a new Rankin photo shoot Kelis did. More photos to come.

The King Is Back....

T.I.'s comeback single hit the internets yesterday. It's nothing that will make you say "OMG! THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY" but it is the good ole' T.I. you either love or hate. Click here to listen and download.

Another Day Another Preview Shot...

All you Beyonce Stans, here's another screenshot from Bey's and Lady GaGa's "Telephone" video that keeps getting its release pushed back. Now it's set to drop on Thrusday on E! News at 11 pm (EST). Looks like it'll be interesting to say the least. Wonder if it'll make an appearance before Thursday though *cue suspenseful music*

Things Just Ain't The Same...

Remember the days when Usher was the man. When he was the dude whose body all the other dudes envied and the ladies drooled over? Well, a divorce to Tameka and two kids later....Usher just doesn't look the same anymore. Homeboy was spotted around L.A. yesterday looking a bit lost and in need of a friend. Let's hope he gets it together and creates some buzz before his big album drop on March. 30. How do you think the album will do?

What Does A Million Dollar Girl Look Like?

I have no idea when the video for Trina's "Million Dollar Girl" is droppin but here's the behind-the-scenes footage. The video looks very on point (read "like it had a proper budget) and Trina looks great! Diddy and Keri Hilson also make appearances.

Teairra Mari (ft. Gucci Mane & Soulja Boy): Sponsor

If you remember back to the times RiRi first came out, Teairra Mari was supposed to be the breakout star and then RiRi trumped her. So, then Teairra released a song called "No Daddy" and now she's looking for a "Sponsor"? Makes me raise an eyebrow. The girl channels her inner gold digger in the video, but to be totally honest the song isn't something I'd sponsor, or even download. P.S. is it just me, or do the animated faces she pulls remind you of a certain female rapper who's blowing up the game right now?

Mr. Songz on Gay Rumours + Making Girls "Squirt"

Mr. Panty Dropper himself, Trey Songz hit "The Morning After" with Angela Yee to address a few things. Watch the video below to hear Trey address the gay rumours, talk about making girl's squirt, Toni Braxton's divorce and more.

The Oscars: Red Carpet Arrivals

As with every award show, there were hits and there were misses. Just which dresses were put into the two categories is in the eye of the beholder I suppose because the Twitter peanut gallery was split on many of these. Before I get to the dresses though, let me apologize to the fellas. Ya'll are not nearly as exciting as the ladies, so there's no "Males Red Carpet Arrivals"...throw on a kilt and I'll consider it next time. Without further delay, here are some of the most talked-about looks of the night.

This is probably the most talked-about look of the night. Zoe Saldana's Givenchy creation is the first of two love it or hate it looks. And, I am so torn. On the one hand she rocked it effortlessly and finished the look with purple suede Givenchy heels. Layers frills, a slit, a metallic strapless bodice together in one dress are a fashion risk that I'm not sure worked.

This was definitely another love it or hate it look. I personally wasn't crazy about it and thought it looked like bubble wrap. But a lot of people were diggin it. The Armani Prive' gown was a great match for Jenny's skin but, overall, I didn't love it.

Nicole Richie hit the red carpet in a metallic blue, black and silver design by Reem Acra. I found the look very Old Hollywood chic. Love the wide sleeves cause they give it a vintage feel.

I felt like Mo'nique played it safe in this classic look. However, Mo did impress me with her well-thought out speech. Although our Twitter peeps did notice two things. One, she didn't thank God. Two, she didn't thank Director Lee Daniels. Hm. Interesting.

Queen Latifah was the definition of elegance for me last night. From her hair and makeup to the lovely one shoulder gown by Badgley Mischka, everything was working in her favour.

Paula Patton in all her pregnant glow glory chose a vibrant orange dress. Paula is always very elegant and well put-together in my eyes.

I gotta admit, some of the outfits they put Gaborey Sidibe make me cringe. But last night she made a great choice by wearing this dress Marchesa and looked simply lovely.

Is Mimi trying to hide a tummy? Lots of pregnancy rumours flying around recently and she does look a bit thicker than usual.

New Couple?

With rumours swirling that Stacy Dash is going through her third divorce, you know tongues are gonna wag about the fact that she showed up with Jamie Foxx to the Oscar festivities. Not sure if we can call this a new couple alert quite yet but it's something to keep an eye on. I personally think they're cute together.

Jeff Chery Gets in the Zone

We've been fans of Jeff Chery since we heard his catchy song "Milf", now the Brooklyn-born, Atlanta-based singer is back with another single. The song is called "Zone Out" and features a theme of Jeff being in his own world where things are done his way and he can get into a zone. This young man has a bright future ahead of him if he continues to put out catchy and thought-provoking songs.

Shiloh the Tomboy

Quite a bit has been written recently about the way Angelia Jolie and Brad Pitt have been dressing their daughter Shiloh. The little girl has been sporting a "boy" haircut and lots of "boy clothes". Many people are upset or wondering what the heck is going on. I'm not sure how I personally feel about it, or if I even care. She looks like a happy kid and what business is it of mine how someone raises their child? *shrug* Do you have an opinion on Shiloh's transformation?
