Tiny Keeps Her Man Close

The other day, the blogs were abuzz with how T.I. skipped outta ATL for the NFL Draft parties without his lady love, Tiny. Not so. Cameras caught up with the couple at the 2nd Annual Celebrity Draft Classic at Amnesia NYC in New York City on Wednesday. At first Tiny seemed okay with the cameras in her face like, "mmmhmm bitches, he ain't alone" but then Clifford started to side eye the cameras and she followed his lead. Interesting though, dont think I've ever seen a peace sign with a side-eye before. LoL.

Lauryn Are You Coming Back?

Recently, Lauryn Hill was spotted making her way out of a gala event in NYC. When the paps caught up with her, Lauryn hinted that she may be coming out with new material. That's enough to give me hope! It's also nice to see her looking for normal. I seriously think there's a huge hole in music that Lauryn could so easily fill with her introspective songs. Ms. Hill's first album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hil"l was released nearly 12 years ago. Ain't that something?

Ciara Steps Out In Yellow

I dunno about you, but I love yellow for the spring. Apparently so does Ciara! Ms. Ride herself stepped out for US Weekly's Hot Hollywood Style Issue party in head-to-toe Versace. Super cute look for her!

LeToya Luckett's Alter Ego

LeToya Luckett is the latest celeb to do an "Alter Ego" photo shoot with celeb photographer Derek Blanks. Her theme was Strong Vs. Weak, as her strong ego pulls the weak one under her umbrella-ella-ella. Gotta say, she's lookin pretty fab!


What grown ass man would allow himself to be photographed this way? Apparently Donald Faison, who posed on the throne in what appears to be a hotel room and let someone snap it. SMH.

Fashion Forward or Fashion Fail: Kelis Edition

I don't get know what to make of the getup in which Kelis took to the stage last night at Santos in NYC. The outfit consisted of head to toe sheer lace and a fringy jacket with fringy heels. I know Kelis is the original bad bish and all that but is this look fashion forward or just an utter fail?

RiRi Busts Her Ass

While performing "Let Me" in Lyons, France, RiRi took a lil spill on stage. Hey, it happens to the best of artists! She fell while running on the stage and slid to a sudden stop. Props to RiRi for playing it off well. She managed to look like a rock star.

Ray J's Mom Defends His Sextape. SMH.

The Norwood's appeared on Wendy Williams to plug their reality TV show. Ms. Wendy asked Ray's Mommy how she felt about her son's sextape with Kim K and although Mrs. Norwood said she was upset she also attempted to pass the blame off to Kim. Talkin about "Did you see him on the cover of Play Girl?" Hmmm...wowzers, did you see the look on Ray J's face...poor thing.

Luda Shows Off His Lady Love....

Ludacris hosted his "Ralph Lauren Fundraiser" at the Atlanta Ralph Lauren Polo Boutique last night and brought out his beautiful lady friend. Can we just say they make a lovely couple? Luda looks truly happy.
All the proceeds of the event went to his foundation. And you can help. Ralph Lauren created a special Purple Label tie for the occasion and 100% of the proceeds of sales go to Luda's foundation. Get out and get yours today!

P.S. She's sexxy eh?

Watch Out For That Ray J

That damn Ray J! Look how he's eyeing Fantasia! Could there be a romance in the works....hmmm I'm sure it's all just friendly and ish but he's too much!

Fantasia, Ray-J, and even Brandy all hit the VH1 Upfronts for their respective shows this season. Kinda liking Brandy's outfit a bit

The Art of the Little Black Dress

Zoe Saldana is quickly becoming Hollywood's "it" girl! Last night was an example of why that title could easily go to her. Zoe looked flawless as she hit the premier of "Losers" in a lil black dress that she accented with a cute belt and dopppppe shoes. Ladies, takes notes on the art of the little black dress.

Does Gabby Union Still Got It?

Remember when all the guys used to jock Gabriel Union? Well, it's been a hot min since her name was mentioned in the same sentence as "sexiest woman", "most beautiful", etc. Yesterday Ms. Union hit Capitol Hill for Bounty's event "Make a Clean Difference". She's now sporting a lighter hair color, so we gotta ask: Does Gabby still got it?

Drake's New Love?

Sorry ladies. It looks like the Canadian boy Drake is off the market, at least for now. Drake partied the night away in ATL recently with booty model/ video chick Maliah Michel. Apparently word is that they're serious and this isn't some sort of publicity stunt. We'll see how this develops. BTW, if you dont recognize's Maliah at "work":

LBoogie Makes Her Return?

Yes, that's her. I'm not kidding! The beauty that is Lauryn Hill actually attended a red carpet event last night in NYC. She hit the pap line at Plaza Athenee, which was hosting an event for the Tanzania Education Trust New York Gala. Lauryn wore a modest outfit, and yes I know her eyebrows are a bit much but just seeing her out and about gives me hope. I still go to sleep and dream of Lauryn putting out a single and then *Lord please* a full-length album. We miss you Ms. Hill.

R.I.P. Guru

Sad news is coming outta the hip-hop scene today. Keith Edward Elam, better known as Guru from the hip hop duo Gang Starr, died on April 19 after a long battle with cancer. He was 43. Guru wrote a letter for his fans while in the hospital, according to his collaborating partner Solar:
"I, Guru, am writing this letter to my fans, friends and loved ones around the world. I have had a long battle with cancer and have succumbed to the disease. I have suffered with this illness for over a year. I have exhausted all medical options. I have a non-profit organization called Each One Counts dedicated to carrying on my charitable work on behalf of abused and disadvantaged children from around the world and also to educate and research a cure for this terrible disease that took my life. I write this with tears in my eyes, not of sorrow but of joy for what a wonderful life I have enjoyed and how many great people I have had the pleasure of meeting," said the statement released by Solar.

With all the drama surrounding Solar before Guru's passing, Im not sure how much of the letter I believe except that he relly is gone. RIP Guru, you will be missed.

How Adorable Is He???

Wowzers, Kimora Lee Simmons sure makes pretty babies!!! The fashion mogul took her baby boy, Kenzo, for a jet-setting day of plane rides out of LAX. For his part, Kenzo looked uber happy to be chillin on mommy's hip. Looks like a happy baby!

Who Pissed Off Ciara?

So yesterday CiCi released this lil viral that's causing quite the stir. The song is called "Basic Instinct (You Got Me" and for the first part of the video CiCi takes a stab at rapping and a stab at SOMEONE in the industry. She raps ish like "See I was out buying Chanel bags, while I was doing that you turned up your swag (you got me)/ Yup, caught me slippin’, but get your hustle on shawty I ain’t trippin’/I let ya in the game free / shawty whole album sound just like me/ Say you weren’t talkin’ bout me, but I know that you was talkin’ bout me!"
Ugh....okay CiCi! Apparently people say she's goin in on Keri Hilson. My question is: why now??

Kelis Wants Her Papers ASAP

Kelis is taking a page from Usher's book and demanding her papers...divorce papers that is. She filed papers with a judge recently demanding that the divorce with Nas be sped up and the additional details (custody of their child, financial info, etc) be worked out later. Here's how TMZ reported it:
According to documents filed last week, Kelis said in a declaration, "... it would be in the best interest of both of us if our marital status is terminated as soon as possible."

Because she fears that the legal proceedings could take years to figure out, Kelis has requested that the judge immediately terminate their marriage -- and wait until a later time to resolve "all other issues."

As for the odds that the two will rekindle their romance -- Kelis stated, "I believe their is no possibility of reconciliation with [Nas]."

Grace Jones Calls Out Gaga!

I dunno about you, but I never realized just how similar Lady GaGa's style was to that of Grace Jones! Well, now the pop icon is calling out Lady GaGa for swagger jacking. Ms. Jones recently spoke to the UK Guardian and had this to say when asked about allegations of Lady Gaga being a copycat and on working with GaGa:
"I just don't play with other acts as a rule," she says, with rare discretion.

What does she think of her? "I really don't think of her at all. I go about my business."

Has she copied her? "Well, you know, I've seen some things she's worn that I've worn, and that does kind of piss me off."

Is she talented? "I wouldn't go to see her."

So, did she ask to play with her? "Yes, she did, but I said no. I'd just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually.

Drake's Wins & Juno Performance

Last night at the Juno Awards (Canada's version of the Grammys for you Americans) Drake snagged two awards: Best New Artist of the Year and Best Rap Recording of the Year for "So Far Gone." Really happy for Drake but what was up with the air hump? LoL. Peep it below:

Drizzy also took to the stage to perform "Over." Dude even dropped the mic. Ow!

Lil Wayne: Single

The Young Money leader is releasing videos from prison now? We see you Wayne! The DJ Scoob Doo-directed video for “Single” is from Lil Wayne’s "No Ceilings" mixtape, which was released last year. It was apparently inspired by Martin Lawrence’s "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate."
P.S. What's up with the exchange between him and Nicki at the beginning? To me it sounds like she confirms he's got a wife?? WTF?

Does RiRi Have Skills on the Drums?

Apparently RiRi took drum lessons from Travis Barker and put em to good use recently as she kicked off her "Last Girl On Earth" tour in Europe. Does she have more singing skills or drum skills? You decide:

Oh, and if you're wondering what Rihanna's next single is, it's "Rockstar 101", for which she recently filmed a video. I can honestly say I wouldn't be able to sit through an entire RiRi concert. Watch the video and then try to argue with me:

Kim Regrets Doing Playboy

Apparently Kimmy K now regrets the photos above. Here's what she had to say about her Play Boy shoot:
“I’m sorry I did Playboy. I was uncomfortable,” she remembers, though at the time she was excited. “Go for it,” she recalls her mother saying. “They might never ask you again. Our show isn’t on the air yet. No one knows who you are. Do it and you’ll have these beautiful pictures to look at when you’re my age.” basically mommy is living vicariously through her daughters AND pimpin em out for fame?? Are we surprised? Typical Hollyweird parent. SMH.
