The-Dream Addresses His Failed Marriage

All week, we've been reporting on the separation between The-Dream and Christina Milian after photos came out of The-Dream getting up close and personal with his assistant on a beach. Well, I have a feeling this is just the beginning of the drama because I bet the divorce proceedings will also be made very public, as they usually are with celebs. Either way, The-Dream has now taken to his website to lament the failed relationships. Here's what he had to say:
First I want to thank God for the trials of life, without them we can’t know purpose!

I would love to tell the truth as to why my relationship wasn’t successful, but today that is between me and Christina. Its easy to say that it’s because of another woman or a new relationship but truthfully, IT’S NOT.

I take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for misleading everyone into thinking everything was fine and okay when we knew problems existed for awhile! I wanted to speak up but we decided it wasn’t for anyone to know. I would NEVER intentionally hurt a soul and everyone around me knows that! There was so much going on in me and Christina’s personal world that I tried to deal with it as delicately as I could and tried to regain my footing. Instead of being direct in order not to cause even more hurt or hurt someone’s feelings, I carried the weight in secret!

I am Human and people fall in and out of Love all the time… This is Life. Nothing’s promised or perfect, neither am I. I am not proud that I lost something we once had…LOVE! I’ve always been a Loving Father, Hard Worker, Generous, Stern and Eager to prove myself. My faults are I can be irresponsible and an ass sometimes, but I HAVE NEVER and WILL NEVER be a malicious person or wish harm to anyone, especially those I love or the mother of my child. I’m sorry for the embarrassment to everyone involved! If there’s anyone to blame and you can’t fathom this happening, please blame me and me alone for not being upfront! Even though we were trying to overcome personal things between us, I was just simply scared and embarrassed to let everyone know we WERE FAILING and HAVE NOW FAILED!

This is not to justify anything, it’s true emotion! It’s a real thing that involves real people! I’ve cried about this for months, after interviews, after prayer and I’ve tried to take my own life at a point because of the failure that was looming.

But I was reminded by my MOTHER that I am not “Superman” and its okay to lose sometimes…

This too shall pass! And everything will be fine!

Hmmm now suicide is a VERY sensitive topic, but mentioning it in an open letter on your website...really? If he did try to attempt suicide, I sincerely hope he gets the help he needs. As for Christina, I hope she runs for the hills because this is a mess. Best of luck to both of them and I hope they keep it civilized for the baby.

Lil Wayne May Be Out Early...

Well, well, well, guess who might be saying goodbye to Rikers earlier than expected. Lil Wayne may be walking out in November on good behaviour. That means he'll have served 9 months of his year old jail sentence after going in in early March. If Weezy behaves he'll be heading home on Nov. 4. Jae Millz had some interesting thoughts about Weezy’s return:
"I hear when he comes home, he's hitting the stage. I hope they let him keep his inmate uniform. He needs to come onstage with that, the whole Bruce Leroy [jail attire] and take it off and throw all the jewels on and tear it down for everyone. 'Cause they waiting for him"

Alrighty then. In other Lil Wayne news, his manager, Cortez Bryant, announced the rapper will release an EP, “I’m Not A Human Being” on his 28th birthday, September 27. The digital release will also preview Tha Carter IV set to hit stores by the end of the year.

Monica: Love All Over Me

First of all, how beautiful is Monica? In her "Love All Over Me" video Ms. Monica (who by the way is featured in CreamWorld's summer 2010 issue) employs the help of rapper Maino and basketball player Shannon Brown to play out a dramatic love triangle. You see Maino and Monica are an item and then dude goes to jail...tells her to move on...and she does. He comes out and then...well watch it. But you're gonna be a lil irked at the ending...just warning you.

Ne-Yo's NOT Getting Married

Back in June we reported that Ne-Yo is expecting a baby. Well, since then rumours have been flying that he has also proposed to the mother of his unborn child, Monyetta Shaw, who is about 5 months pregnant. Seems that those rumours are not true. In a recent interview Ne-Yo was asked about his plans to wed and he responded by saying it's all just rumours.
Is he just throwing us off, or telling the truth?

RiRi's Reps Squash Reunion Rumours

Rumors started flying that Chris Brown and Rihanna have begun patching things up after his emotional BET Awards performance. According to Heat magazine, RiRi was touched by Chris's emotion and they spoke on the phone. Well, her camp says, simply, NOT TRUE! Rihanna's rep is denying that the two are back in touch. Annnnd we're done...

It's Not Looking Good for Kelis...

Yikes! I guess this is a perfect example of how karma is a bitch. According to Hits Daily Double, Kelis's album "Fleshtone" is a flop with a capital F! She's apparently moved 7,833 units. How mortifying, considering she did quite a bit of promo for the album. Better luck next time?

Ne-Yo: Beautiful Monster/ Champagne Life

Former CreamWorld coverboy Ne-Yo goes for something epic with his mini-movies for "Beautiful Monster" and "Champagne Life", the first two singles from his upcoming album, Libra Scale. According to Ne-Yo, "Beautiful Monster" is one piece of a long and intricate story. "Beautiful Monster" represents the love interest / arch nemesis in the story of Libra Scale", which the entire album is based off of. Interesting....

Has anyone figured out why Ne-Yo says "beautiful" so weirdly in the video, or is it just me? Hm...just saying. Teehee, Ne-Yo's a superhero fighting bad guys. AND he takes off his hat!!!

Here we get the back story of how Ne-Yo came to be in the position he is in for the "Beautiful Monster" is a prelude.

Sometimes We Have to Laugh at Ourselves...

Comedian Affion Crockett is back at it! Last time he was channeling Russell Simmons and most recently Chris Brown. Now he takes on Drake, for a second time. The first time was last July when he went in on Drake's infamous Hot97 Blackberry freestyle. Now he parodies Drake's appearance on Tim Westwood's show in England. Affion's got Drake's hand gestures and personality down 100%. Hil-ar-ious.

Here's the original so you can compare:

Why Is Christina Milian Still Sporting a Ring?

After being in the news all week since her husband was spotted frolicking on the beach with his assistant and then announcing his hasn't been with his wife since last year, Christina Milian was caught the other day, still wearing her ring. SMH. Yesterday when we reported the announcement of the split, we pointed out that just on June 29, Christina had taken to Twitter to ask fans to support her "Boo".
Apparently, Christina was blind-sided by The-Dream's announcement. According to various anonymous sources, Christina believed she was working on her issues with her husband. I dunno about you, but if I was "blind-sided" like that, the first thing I'd be doing is taking off that ring...but that's just me.

Rihanna & Chris Brown Talking?

Now, I'm not sure how true this is but if there is even an ounce of truth in it, Chris Brown better think twice before his ass ends up in jail. Remember, he's been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Rihanna for five years. Anyways, according to African magazine Heat, Chris and RiRi have apparently been in contact. A source told the mag:
“It’s been almost a year since they last spoke, but Rihanna felt like she could try to be friends with Chris again. Seeing how emotional he was on set [at the BET Awards] really touched her. She’d never seen him like that before. Chris told her that he felt like he’s grown up in the past year. He’s said he’s so happy to be back in touch with her. They were each other’s first love and he’s missed her so much. Rihanna knows that if he wanted him back, he’d be there in a second.”

What do ya'll think: true or false?

Drake Already Working on Next Album

Almost exactly a month after his first release, "Thank Me Later" Drake is already talking about his next album. Drake took to Twitter last night, with a little bit of alcohol in his system to declare:

p.s. What's up with the Zoolander face in the photo? LoL...

Sean Kingston Accused of Sexual Assault

I gotta say, I didn't see something like this coming from Sean Kingston. Then again, sexual assailants don't have a face to them. Anyways, according to TMZ the alleged incident occurred on Sunday night at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Seattle. Here's how the website is reporting it:
Sources tell us two women showed up for a party in one of the hotel rooms. Kingston was present.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the women were both intoxicated when they arrived, with bottles of vodka and beer in hand. We’re told one of the women claims Kingston had sex with her, and, as one source says, “She was very aggressive.” Kingston then left the party and went to another room on the same floor. Sources say the woman then proceeded to have sex with two other men in the room. The second woman, we’re told, also had sex with someone in the room.
A hotel manager tells TMZ “an incident” did indeed occur in the hotel Sunday night, though he was not specific. The fire department tells us an ambulance was called and transported both women — 19 and 20 years of age — to a hospital where rape tests were conducted. We’re told the women were also tested for Rufinol, but the results are not in.
Sources say Kingston, who is scheduled to perform tonight with Justin Bieber in Portland, was initially asked by cops to come in for an interview, but police have determined the case is not credible and they now say an interview is unnecessary. We’re told one of the women is going to file a civil lawsuit, and maybe both.

Um....this all sounds very odd indeed. One girl “aggressively” has sex with Sean Kingston and then two more men??? Did they mean HE had aggressive sex with her? All while her friend is getting it in with someone else. Rape is very, very serious so I won't insert my opinion here. Let's just hope the police get to the bottom of this.

Prisoners Want a Piece of Lindsay Lohan?!

According to the NY Post, Lindsay Lohan has good reason to be terrified to serve her 90 days behind bars. The newspaper is reporting that "lesbian gangs" are ready to have their way with Lilo. Eeeeks.
According to Tamara Haley, a 38-year-old currently at Lynwood doing time for heroin possession and prostitution, Lindsay can expect quite the reception when she arrives at the bing: “Everyone will want a piece of her. It will make them famous if they hurt Lindsay Lohan. Or if you get her to cry, the whole ward will laugh and people will love it — even the guards.”
Speaking of satisfaction, Haley warns that lesbian gangs are always on the lookout for fresh fish and Lindsay is liable to end up somebody’s prison b*tch if she’s not careful: “The gay inmates wear their shirts inside out to let others know they are available. So if Lindsay doesn’t want someone to grab her ass she’d better keep her shirt on straight. Women grab each other like animals when the guards aren’t looking. It’s disgusting.”
Lindsay may not have to serve more than 23 days of her 90 day sentence due to jail overcrowding, and because of her celebrity status she’s likely to be held in the segregation unit for her own safety.
Haley added: “She’ll be segregated from the general population but where she’s going it is even worse. It’s the wing where the murderers are. I don’t think they will actually be able to get to her, but you never know. At the very least some of those hardcases will try to scare her. They’ll scream stuff to her from their cells. I’ve been in segregation and it was rough. The lights are on the whole time. You hear people screaming all night long. The cells are filthy and kept brutally cold. You get one tiny blanket and that’s it. There’s an infection going around now. You can barely sleep at night from all the coughing. And there are girls with body lice.”

W-O-W-Z-E-R-S!!!!! That is all.

Christina Milian & The-Dream Have BEEN Separated?

Yesterday the Internet was ablaze with photos of The-Dream happily frolicking with his assistant on the beach after flat-out denials that anything was wrong between him and Christina Milian. Well, hours later a statement was released by The-Dream's people that him and his baby mom's have actually been separated...SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR! Here's how it reads:
Terius 'The-Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful. The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward.

Well, this wouldn't be strange, except that just a few weeks ago Christina tweeted this:

Hmmm now why would she be doing that? Is this "break-up" for album sales? Is she still just friends with him? I dunno but it's kinda fishy. Christina should've gotten out when The-Dream wore knee-high socks for their wedding photos. SMH.

A-Game: Airplanes

In May, we showed you some behind-the-scenes images from Toronto rap duo A-Game's video shoot for "Airplanes". Well, now here's the video.
The dance-friendly record was produced by T-Minus and the video was directed by Aaron A (whose resume including directing for Nelly Furtado and Down with Webster, among others. Filmed at an airport hanger and other Tdot spots, the video features airplanes, cars, shots of the city and, of course, some sexy chicks. Did I mention there's a super cute dance? Well, there is. Watch some Tdot dancers show em how to do the Airplane!

Jeff Chery: They Get Around

We told you about hip-hop artist Jeff Chery as few times in the past. Last time, Jeff was dropping his mix-album "Going Against the Grain", now he's getting ready to release his next project, titled "The Transition" on August 29. One of the records on that album will be "They Get Around." It's the tale of what two bothers go through over a young lady, and the consequences they face afterwards.
Jeff claims that people think "money is the root of all evil" but he disagrees. According to him, however, it's women. His reasoning? "In the world we live in now, more people are dying and fighting over women than money". Not sure if I agree but it's still a dope record. Enjoy.
By the way, Sam Sneed on production.

Hey Dream, That's NOT Christina...

Hmph....I don't even know where to start. As you know, there have been A LOT of rumours that The-Dream and Christina Milian, who gave birth to their daughter 5 months ago were on the verge of splitting. Those rumours were then denied.
But I guess these photos of The-Dream happily frolicking on the beach with a woman who turned out to be his assistant, Melissa Marie, are enough confirmation. According to Internet reports Ms. Marie is known for ummm getting around a little bit. It's always the assistant or the secretary isn't it? (see post below).
Damn shame. We hope Christina does the right thing and gets rid of this loser, if she hasn't already. The-Dream is officially a punk in my eyes. Yeah, I said it. Can't respect any man who treats the mother of his child like that. If you're a public figure, release a statement and do as you please because, whether you like it or not, you're in a fish bowl and eyes are on you at all times. Have some respect.

Halle's Bisexual Lover?

*le sigh* According to some websites, Halle Berry walking down the street and linking arms with her personal assistant is an indication that they're lesbian lovers. Are you serious? I link arms with my friends sometimes. One site went as far as to report that they were whispering "sweet nothings" into each other's ears. Really? That's what you're gonna go with? Anyways, there have been rumours for years that Halle is bisexual. Whatever. Power to her if she is.

Lala & Carmelo's Wedding Bells...

Lala Vazquez is finally more than just a basketball girlfriend...she's a basketball wife! Yaaaay. Carmelo Anthony and Lala tied the knot this weekend in New York City. A lot of celebs were present for the ceremony and it was taped for an upcoming VH1 reality series. I am not surprised. Either way, they look fab and very happy together.

Rick Ross (ft. Styles P): B.M.F

You know for the most part, Rick Ross videos are productions. B.M.F (Blowing Money Fast) is no different. Ricky and his goons (or comrades as he calls them) chill in the hood talking about the good life. There's also a lot of showing off of diamonds and thangs. Then Ricky joins Styles P cruising around NYC in style and there's some cameos...of course.
P.S. Being the dork I am...I googled Big Meech and Larry Hoover. HAHAHA....they were both gangsters, if you're curious. Big Meech founded the Black Mafia Family and Larry Hoover is the leader of the Gangster's Disciple gang, although he's been in jail since 1973. Interesting.
