Hip Hop Hollywood is about to “turn up” for real-very soon.
If you’ve been following the story[line] of everybody on the show (which includes ), then certainly you know what former B2K member/dancer/actor Omarion’s storyline is [on the show].
Although he does a reality “show,” according to sources, his real reality is real and is about to get “realer,” [lol].
As if it’s not bad enough when a boys mom is looking at you with a third eye, or either doesn’t like you (for whatever reason), it’s equally as tough when you give that man a baby and his mom says: ‘uh…not so fast…maybe.’
Well although the pictures of Omarion with his new baby, Megaa, and Apryl-the woman by whom he [allegedly has a child with—let his mom Leslie tell it] have been floating around getting all loved up on, the Somebody Help Me actor’s mother isn’t so convinced the child is Omarion’s.
Now although Omarion is black/is of African American decent, and Apryl is of mixed race (Asian and Black), Omarion’s mother is still not convinced that Omarion had anything to do with it-taking into consideration that Apryl’s ex boyfriend is Mexican. Either way, Omarion’s mom doesn’t feel the baby has their ‘Grandberry’ blood running through its veins at all.
As a result of this doubt, the You Got Served actor’s mother wants her son Omarion to get DNA test, and according to sources, Apryl refused to do it. This prompted whispers that he and Apryl are possibly breaking up [over her not agreeing to take the test].
The Feel The Noise actor has already gone on record stating he comes from a family of women with “strong personalities” [who pretty much no girlfriend] he has brought home has been able to handle them.
As well, he feels (in that regard), even Apryl is going to have to (and can) “hold her own.”
I’m thinking, once it’s proven they went half on the baby, all else may fall into place.
..and for those of us bloggers genuinely excited about the love of, and possibility of Missy Elliott’s return, new protégé (Sharaya J), and/or and big reveal: the unveiling of her new body [and eagerly citing] “having lost 70 pounds,” the music phenom wanted to make a correction: She originally lost 70 pounds back during the time of her “Under Construction” CD (by which one of my favorites off the CD is playing above the OSF big screen).
So whether it’s 70-30, or 60-40, we’re talkin’ bout [a] 50-50 love—and so it is.

Author-Writist@http://OTHERSIDEoftheFAME.com Celeb Blog Mag~Magnetic~PeeperAttracter~Somewhere Riding Out to Miley Cyrus' : HANDS UP or Paula Abdul's: STRAIGHT UP
I can sing and all, but I keep my lane.
‘Cause until I can do this:
…I can only ‘sing’ - not ‘sang.’
But when I master that…I’m coming to collect all mics, mane.
Our girl Mariah is still across the water doing her thing.
Despite negative reports (doing what the media can do best: building you up to break you down), and reporting back to the states that the Breakdown singer is losing her octaves-we now got proof.
With torrential downpours going on in the life Robin Thicke, and even despite rumors flying around that his ex Paula Patton is moving on with another guy, don’t quite know when, (or if) he is ever going to redeem his reincheck on he and Katie Holmes’ tentative plans to go out on a date, but Katie was spotted out shopping for Halloween goods with her daughter Suri (and another kid Suri’s age) this weekend while in California.
All smiles and fresh off this past Friday’s divorce party, Robin, on the other hand, was spotted out with his son Julian at Mr. Bones’ Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood (in California, and without Paula-who we just posted for you, is in New York right now).
Although it seems pumpkin patching would have been an ideal, innocent, low-pressure date with nothing too heavy for Robin and Katie, it didn’t quite work out like that, but hey, maybe another time-perhaps they’ll meet up with the kids and carve pumpkins over conversation, pumpkin seed baking and nutmeg shaking.
At any rate.
Suri’s still sprouting up like soap opera children we see [where on Monday they may be newborns and by Friday-they’re already five years-old].
We’ll keep you posted should we hear of any conscious coupling via their kid’s pumpkin carving party or should Katie go grocery shopping to cook up a lil' bite to eat to rock with Robin.
Jada Pinkett Smith On GOTHAM Panel at Paley Fest in NY
In case you did know, Willow Smith’s mom [Jada Pinkett Smith]’s newest project is her as starring as the imposing hothead Fish Mooney on the Fox/CW pilot Gotham-a DC Comic/Batman television series in which she plays a sadistic boss and nightclub owner and like me (lol): with street-smarts and extra-sensory abilities to read people.
As you know, Jada also starred in The Matrix Trilogy and has acted playing versatile roles in movies like Scream 2, Low Down Dirty Shame, Menace to Society, TNT’s medical drama Hawthorne (2009-2011), and countless other music video, movie, and television roles including the Bill Cosby college series A Different World (1991-1993).
This weekend, she sat on the Gotham Panel at the Paley Fest in New York where it was said Jada Pinkett-Smith told the crowd her method of snagging the role, which including showing up for the audition to meet director Danny Cannon (Dark Blue, CSI: NY) dressed in a long, flowing gown and a short, black Fish Mooney wig-complete with a young, shirtless man on a leash with “LIAR” written across his forehead and lipstick.
"I said: 'Forget it, instead of talking about who Fish Mooney is, let me just show you,'" said Pinkett Smith.
"I went method," (method-acting) she explained.
…and so it was written (and secured).
Thus, a monster was born.
Robin Lord Taylor who plays Oswald Cobblepot, i.e. the Penguin, has a trick for remembering his character's awkward gait. Taylor recalled a wide-shot scene in which Cobblepot returns to Gotham when he forgot to limp: "We did the whole thing, and we move along and then I go back to the holding area, and I’m like, 'I forgot to limp!' And I freaked out! I completely freaked out," he told Vulture before the panel. "I immediately had someone go over to the director and the continuity person, and they were like, 'It’s okay, we’ll deal with it. It should be fine.'But then I felt like such a dumb idiot." Then, a wardrobe assistant suggested he use an old acting trick to remind him to waddle: A bottle cap in his right shoe — on the sole, near his heel. "Since then, it’s still in my shoe," Taylor added, during the panel. "It just brings that pain, and it’s a reminder." http://www.contactmusic.com/news/tax-debt-woes-for-janet-jacksons-ex-husband_1275762
Today, we can officially add Jada Pinkett Smith (Scream 2, The Matrix trilogy) to the cast roster for the show’s pilot, as written by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) and to be directed by Danny Cannon (Dark Blue, CSI: NY); the latter pair will also serve as executive producers on the comic book/cop drama-based genre series. Smith is no stranger to the landscape of TV, having previously starred on TNT’s medical drama Hawthorne from 2009-11 and – back in the 20th century – played a key role on the Bill Cosby college series A Different World from 1991-93. The casting of Will Smith’s actress wife is another intriguing development for the Gotham TV series, which sounds more and more promising by the day; now, it just needs to findits young Bruce Wayne and then the show’s major casting decisions ought to be all done.
Ciroc Pineapple and Diddy’s girl Cassie hung out in Miami this weekend for Revolt’s first music festival where she was photographed taking pics with some exclusive guests along with Diddy’s homegirl: choreographer/dancer Laurie Ann Gibson, Violator Management head honcho and Love and Hip Hop Producer Mona Scott-Young and non other that fly Mama Combs herself--all sipping on…of course: Ciroc guys! What else?
Fresh-faced, all smiles, and dressed down in fatigue-y digs, Paula Patton was spotted out leaving her NYC hotel just yesterday-waving to the cameras.
The estranged ex-wife of pop-r & b singer Robin Thicke, has been pretty much incognito since rumors of her leaving him earlier this year February surfaced (and confirmed once Robin completed an entire album dedicated to her, that ultimately fell on her deaf).
Just recently, the a divorce filing was made, citing “irreconcilable differences” and it is rumored that Paula has since moved on to rocker ____ by which she hasn’t confirmed or denied.
CirocFormer Spice Girl and baby-mama [of comedian Eddie Murphy’s] daughter ___ said “tell you what I wants-what I really really wants”: for singers like Rihanna to clean up their image and acts [before she would ever give her daughter the seal of approval to fan and idolize them or their music]
Well I guess if ones assistant can fetch coffee, and pick up dry cleaning and such, who says they can’t assist you in picking up your other things like—your man.
This album that soulful-voiced pop-ternative singer Adele has been threatening to drop (for over a year now) may finally come to fruition now that her muse has come to town.
Adele, known for keeping the focus on her album versus getting stuck with trying to name each LP-pretty much sticks with naming each one simply: whatever her age is.
Although we have albums 21, and 22 (and since no album out in four years, obviously we will be skipping about four-age albums in between), the good news is, we might be getting one really soon from the now 26 year-old singer.
You see, at the height of Adele’s success, she pulled a Lauryn Hill on us: fell back off the music scene, birthed babies and kept it movin.’
Lauryn’s situation was different in that she did a bid because of tax evasion, but she came out hitting the ground running back to the music (but on her terms and tour scheduling).
Adele however, did a bid called: farewell [for quite some time now] only to occasionally be seen with her son Angelo: no makeup, out shopping, and blending in with the other town folks…you know… living a normal life far-far away from glitz, glamour, and being “about that life” [that everyone’s chasing that the Chasing Pavement singer can clearly do without].
I mean, who needs “fame” when (without even putting an album out for the last four years) you’re raking in £80,000 a day and too, got two companies earning having earned £54 million through December 31, 2013—[remnants of the massive success of her album, ‘21’).
The Someone Like You singer (who has gone on record stating that she’d love to collaborate with Beyonce and too, is a huge fan of hers and loves everything she stands for in music) came out of her shell and stepped out when her prospective collaborator showed up in town.
Adele was first spotted at Harry’s Bar and later, was seen leaving a private party for Will.i.Am where, Drunk in Love couple Beyonce and Jay Z stayed and hung out until around 4 a.m. before waking up to what we all know what happens next: “in the kitchen saying ‘how the hell did this sh!t happen oh baby’ ”].
Adele left a few hours earlier-around 12ish
Although there’s no official word as to what, if anything, Adele and Beyonce talked about; we got proof of Beyonce’s bodyguard (Julian) guarding/near Adele so hopefully, Adele was inspired after meeting her muse.
Although Etta James was Adele’s only other dream collaborator (but sadly died), Beyonce was next up to the mic.
"I've been listening to her since I was about 11. I adore her. I love everything she stands for."
"I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable, in terms of the length of her career and how she's grown and grown."
Guess we’ll just have to wait to see if anything will become [of their meeting?].
On another note.
Having put their mics down after a long summer tour, (and eventful year I might add)…Bey Z has been serious about their European excursion and absorbing the museum/art, and fashion culture since September—I know, right?
Perhaps the rumors are true that they may be making Europe (and new feet for socks?) their home.
I mean…they’ve bent it with the Beckhams, met prospective neighbors, met the curators of the museums—*rolls hand in a circle* all-a-dat…you know: getting themselves familiar with the townsmen, the city of Paris and the town of London while making a few friends along the way.
We’ll keep you posted!
Adelehas confessed that she would love to collaborate with Beyoncé.
The singer revealed that she has been a huge fan of the US superstar since her childhood and that she loves everything she stands for in music.
Asked who she would like to work with, Adele told French radio stationNRJ: "I always wanted to do a duet with Etta James, but sadly she passed, so I would probably say Beyoncé because she's one of my ultimate favorites as well.
"I've been listening to her since I was about 11. I adore her. I love everything she stands for."
She added: "I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable, in terms of the length of her career and how she's grown and grown."
Adele recentlyconfirmed that she will have a new song out by the end of 2012, but fans will have to wait at least two years for her third studio album.

Does the next generation have another rap spitter on their hands?
From the looks of things, baby QB (Royal Reign)-reigning heir of the Queen Bee herself Lil’ Kim was captured in a photo by her mommy in all her cuteness and slobbering splendor. Born just on June 9, Royal Reign is 4 months crowned and the most glorious precious little thing in her mommy’s life. Known for rapping about expensive gifts and accoutrements-a-plenty, in a recent interview however, according to Lil’ Kim, nothing can compare to the gift she’s be blessed with-where being a mommy and Royal Reign is concerned.
She said, about being a mom [it’s] “the most expense gift God has ever given me,” “Come on dice.”
“Come on dice.” I betcha this:
With a name like Royal Reign, I’m more than sure Lil’ Kim stayed true to the game when she herself spit the words:
“I do it big, my first kid gon' have a crib all brass.” Although weighing in a tiny 6 pounds and 9 ounces we’re more than sure Royal Reign’s mommy is doing it way big for her little princess.
The "Queen Bee" is showing off new photos of her little princess.
Rapper Lil Kim took to her WhoSay account to sharenew photosof her 4-month-old daughter Royal Reign. “Look at my little princess face!” she captioned one adorable photo.
Kim and her boyfriend, rapper Mr. Papers, welcomed Royal Reign on June 9, weighing 6lbs 5oz and measured in at 19.5 inches. Duringan appearanceon106 & Parkin September, the rapper called motherhood “the most expensive gift God has ever given me.”
“And the most beautiful gift God has ever given me,” she added. Congrats, Kim!

We pointed out to you, the other day, that Rihanna was sporting an interesting gun tote bag. Well, it seems that BadGyalRiRi aint letting it go yet. Although some things might happen to you and me (trying to get guns through the airport) if we bend it like the Bajan beauty by placing it on our shoulder we just might get away with it like the Man Down singer.
Outside of what we already know about ExtraTV entertainment news correspondent, and former cast member of Saved By The Bell Mario Lopez, we know that he is:
Has the best dimples in Hollywood
Loves boxing and even looks like one
…and courtesy of OSF:
..but there’s more to Lopez than what meets the eye.
Skinny Minny Missy. Missy Elliott unveiled her new figure right in the place where she, herself, is fit to be after an almost 70 pound weight loss: At designer Alexander Wangs H&M show in New York. “Just got off stage thanks @AlexanderWangNY and @hmusa for having me perform I enjoyed ..” While Missy is skinny enough to have walked the catwalk with all the other models the songwriting/rapper/singer/producing phenom opted to pick up where she last left off: performing on stage. Blessing the stage with a remixed/newer version of “Work it” –a kind of Missy Elliott rendition of the old Right Said Fred runway model anthem “I’m Too Sexy,” perfect for the atmosphere; Missy Elliott was right in her element-looking just that and out of this world amazing!
[embed] http://youtu.be/tO11XLQIqU8[/embed] Although over the past few years, Elliott has taken a chill pill, it certainly isn’t because she herself didn’t have any work or will. “I couldn’t write, I couldn’t even hold a pen,” said Missy, who revealed her illness in 2011. Since being diagnosed with Grave’s Disease in 2008, Missy’s everyday normal functioning (that we often take for granted) was compromised greatly. It wasn’t until one day, while driving, her leg started jumping…She took her foot to press the brake and barely could—her normal routine bodily functions stopped her right there in her tracks-that’s when she knew something was terribly wrong. After suffering from severe mood swings, loss of hair, and dizzy spells, Missy had undergone radiation treatment and medication, which improved her condition. In popular culture, we’ve only heard of the condition one time perhaps, back when 1992 Olympic runner Gail Devers suffered from the autoimmune disease which attacks the thyroid gland and as a result, produces an excessive amount of thyroid hormones which affects the body’s metabolic rate/temperature. Although there still is no cure for it, the symptoms (which are weight loss, muscle weakness, hand tremors, insomnia, and excessive sweating), can be treated. As yet, we do not know if Missy’s performance was the catalyst for more to come, but she has been grooming and promoting her artist Sharaya to follow footsteps for success. [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=360qsKTZLPg[/embed]
[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwkbQleKThI[/embed] Either way, Missy is alive, well, and living: vicariously. While our guy T.I. was making peace from broken pieces, mending fences, and taming Snoop Lions (from being on the attack of rapper Iggy Azalea), the self-proclaimed mermaid and Yung Rapunxel wanted to just know when the media was going to facilitate putting her back together again after being pixel-pimped by T.I. himself [like Snoop did Iggy]. Six degrees of association (and separation) is an understatement. Whisper ~~~~~~~~~~~
Whether her new bangs were inspired by Janine Garofulo “Reality Bites?”
[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNHt_KWKMbE[/embed] …or by her comparison and inspiration Tina Turner/(Angela Bassett)’s retro-60s bang like in the Tina Turner biopic “What’s Love Got To Do With It”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oj3AoYT-ru8 …or whether she was simply inspired by her self, reminiscent of her video Why Don’t You Love Me?
[embed]http://youtu.be/QczgvUDskk0[/embed] …the fact of the matter is: Beyonce has been working the historic culture/art/museum scenes in London-painting the town red with her banging presence and as well: working those bangs whether her critics like it or not. Beyonce is all smiles and laughs-either way, unbothered. I look at it like this: unless you are Prince’s Wendy and Lisa (Prince and the Revolution), other than [it being] trendy/copycattish, there is NOTHING cute, sexy, or redeeming about a side of shaved hair on one side and this big wad of hair swooped to the other guys, so if Beyonce wants to cut her bangs and wear a style (that soon-you all will be mimicking too), let her lead the way for yous already : )~
Have at her gallery of pics, obviously not caring about what her critics are saying.
I think it’s working for her, and she is working IT…especially with that black/plum lipstick. I thought only Foxy Brown, Mary J. Blige, my mom, my cousin Krista, and Rihanna were the only ones and it world that could pull black/plum lipstick off—that’s it…no one else! But Beyonce officially made my list on that list too I see. Whodathunkit!? It’s oddly perfect with her new bangs and stunner shades…I dunno why.

Talk about art imitating life. When Erykah Badu sang: “I was born under water with three dollars and six dimes. Yeah you may laugh, but you did not do your math,” although that was the “deep” way of saying “I was baptized (whether religiously or symbolically ‘baptized,’) once I come from under water, change happened—“a [complete] 360.” Well, the Window Seat singer probably never entertained the thought that she [“Erykah Badu”] would make under $4.00 performing for passersby in Times Square for street change, riffing and singing: “I need some money” –said the singer who, as well, hasn’t made an album in over two years [she says]. Curious about New York/middle America’s willingness to drop a few pennies down into her ten-gallon hat (where with on-less the glasses she eventually puts on as a disguise) she was immediately recognized. However, when she removed the hat to use it as her bucket (for tips in exchange for carrying a note or too), Badu goes on to explain that “with just a little talent,” and tenacity, you can make money. Unsure if these street diaries will be going on and on, but the entertainer makes a point, (and makes some money). So after 4 and a half 1/2 minutes, the return was approximately $3.60. Yeah, you may laugh…but I will do the math: She made $3.60 (in…lets it round up): 5 minutes.
There are 12 “5 minutes’ ” in an hour.
$43.12 per hour.
If one does this 8 hours a day, they could make $344.96 per day.
$344.96 per day for 5 days per week is $1724.80—per week.
$1724.80 per week for 4 weeks (which is one month) equals: $6899.20 per month. Yeah, you may laugh…’cause you did not do your math. Check out the footage for yourself:
“personally i only shake hands & offer my support to those i actually like & i don't post shit about others for attention to begin with.” https://twitter.com/NickSwagyPYoung/status/522283153126215680 https://twitter.com/NickSwagyPYoung/status/522218887379959809 https://twitter.com/NickSwagyPYoung/status/522217387849166848 L.A. Lakers’ Nick Young stepped into the paint—of the war between west-coast rapper Snoop Dogg and his Aussie-bred girlfriend: Iggy Azalea, that began when she posted an au naturale #nofilter pic of herself without hers. `````
The battle of the war and words between the two rappers went on from there. No need to ignore the pink elephant in the room, but fact of the matter is, the rap world is having a hard time adjusting to Pink Friday female rapper [Nicki Minaj]’s reigning crown of fame being forced to fall back (just for a little while-at least until Azalea starts picking up her accolades she is slated to be picking up this award season). For six years now, there had been no other female rapper in the game doing hip-pop in a way that Nicki Minaj had been doing it. Entre vous Iggy. …from there, Nicki got her hip-pop “competition” (as a result of Nicki resting her underground hip-hop gloves just to get out here and contend with nobody but herself out here in this rap game for six years). Although underground hip-hop is a place where Azalea probably couldn’t contend with Nicki [no, not necessarily because she’s white either-Eminem can surely give underground hip hop dudes a run for their money-being a contender and others-he surely could send ‘em home running to their mama’s] but were she [Iggy] fit in-she damned sure got in…and the results is shots fired all across in Internet over the power-shift. So while Iggy is merely in a position for collecting all the accolades and praise she’s worked for and earned (and even to the extent of setting up personal fan mail boxes at all her shows for her fans to drop their letters in for replies back), Snoop elected to go another route: post insulting Internet memes of, about, and towards Iggy Azalea.
~~~ “I could post a million more memes about snoop dogg making fun of the way he looks too, thats easy.” Now while the rap wrangle sparked an Internet mic-storm, Azalea stands firm on the podium of indifference and asserts she is not “fuming mad” at this situation (as many are assuming and writing). She just feels it’s odd that to her face, Snoop is friendly towards her yet, out of nowhere, [via that damned Instagram], he began taking shots at her and won’t quit.
~~~~~ Although the post she wrote to Snoop @SnoopDogg why would you post such a mean pic on insta when you send your body guards to ask me for pictures every time we are at shows together?" …was deleted shortly afterwords, Azalea left it at this instead:
“its like the guy that asks for your number and then says you ugly and a bitch when you say no…”
Snoop had this to say about it to Iggy:
..and Iggy wants to end it all, on this note: ima be the bigger man in this situation and leave it be.
…Let’s see what happens. Award season is upon us and yesterday, Good Morning America did the honors of announcing American Music Award noms (by which from the looks of things) the Aussie-bred Fancy rapper Iggy Azalea will be the lady of the night and the one to watch. Azalea is up for six nominations followed by John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams who are up for five. Iggy, up for the “New Artist of the Year Award” and too, “Artist of the Year” for her single Fancy, is up against some pretty heavy hitters like Beyonce, Eminem, Katy Perry and One Direction just to name a few. Click here to cast your vote for “New Artist of the Year” which will be presented and known on November 1.

The Fault In Our Stars Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Vol. 1
We kept it cool the day that we wrote Amber Rose pouring her heart out to the world [about since breaking up with Wiz Khalifa-how mornings are so hard and she was feeling like she lost her best friend—yadi yadi yah]. Well, for the record, reporters and trained journalists see a story from a completely different (typically objective) angle that the average person writing a story will just completely miss and fail to deliver…
That is because we are trained to get the story out from all (objective) angles and with all information we have to work with. And then as a writer, conversationalist, and storyteller, I lace (most blogs I write up), by presenting it as a story (on top of “reporting” it). That’s just my ‘thing’ in most of my write ups. But in addition to that being my case (when I write a story), being a naturally intuitive person connects me to what I see, and read in ways that sometimes I will ignore in blog writing, that unlike when I write books-I will not.
When I write books, I let it all flow and hang out.
Here, on my blog magazine, (believe it or not), I’m more tamed (than I could be)… For example:
I say that because the day that I wrote that very story/passage quoting Amber Rose, it was ironic to me that Kanye stuck his head out that same day (and felt the need to post some comment about somebody in fashion returning to fashion)--AS IF we all know Kanye for being some fashion connoisseur and fashion savvy dude (rather than the rapper we all know who rants a lot). https://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/519063328023257088 https://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/519063062184083456 https://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/519062807136849920 When he poked his head out and posted that, I almost interjected [his doing so] by interjecting in my write up: “…and see…this is the sh|t that would get my dude, or even my husband of
….left. Left like what we had was all but a dream.” Sure, I saw it, but I left it alone. Yet, my intuition (as a writer and reporter—not that I care personally) sent my antennae beeping and raised. But I left it alone. …Then I come upon this story today. But before I tell you what prompted me to say all this before the write up and source that inspired this write up, let me explain this (about “intuition”). I’ll let you in on a little secret:
It’s painful to be intuitive (sometimes).
As an intuitive person, (who too, is logical and rational), sometimes I think being intuitive is a test to teach us lessons on how (or if at all) we should act or react to certain situations (and as well, with the power in knowing the unspoken/unrevealed—playing chess with it)… Although we all have and use [what we believe to be] our intuition, I’m one of those people who feel that a person shouldn’t “trust their gut,” trust settling on another’s “negative vibes,” or [what they believe is their own] intuition…if they would ever lie to themselves about what they feel, or think about a subject, situation, or person.
A person shouldn’t trust settling on intuition and “gut feelings” if they would lie to themselves about their judgment or thoughts things (or people) if they would lie to themselves about what’s really going on (about why they feel the way they feel)… In a nutshell, my thing is: if you won’t tell the truth to yourself, then you can’t possibly tell the truth to other people, and therefore, you probably shouldn’t trust your own judgment or rely on [what you believe to be] your “intuition.” [So] how is it you can settle on what you think you see or feel—if you would lie to yourself? You know what I mean? Well…my intuition reporter’s antennae was raised that day [Kanye posted] because although it could have been ironic that Kanye (who hardly never posts) posted something [that looked as if] he just wanted to post something, anything-(ironically around the time it was publicly reported Amber Rose was going through her divorce filing)…it was just weirdly [ironic?] altogether. Well low and behold, I came across a blog post this morning where the source is alleging Kim Kardashian has Kanye under a tight leash now that Amber Rose is single. In case you don’t know, there is a four square situation (involving Amber Rose, who, at the time) was with Kanye West.
Kim Kardashian (who, at the time) was with Reggie Bush. Bottom line: They (Kim and Kanye) were both cheating.
*say this Scandal fast*
Amber Rose insists [and has gone on record several times] stating Kim Kardashian was a homewrecker and one of the reasons she and Kanye broke up and that Kim was cheating on Reggie Bush--sending Kanye nudies and all other kinds of inappropriate pics and texts, all the while Kanye was her [Amber Rose]’s boyfriend from 2008-2010. *catches breath*
*deep sigh* So of course you know and as the story goes (eventually), Kim ended up with Kanye, Amber moved on with Wiz Khalifa [Reggie ended up with some girl that looks like Kim], Wiz and Amber are now broken up, and well…Kanye’s making use of his Twitter account now https://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/521069610138079232 At any rate.
According to the Ok! Magazine, Kim (who stole Kanye from Amber) is now worried that because Amber is now single, she will try and reconnect with Kanye.
According to Ok!, they quote their source as saying:
“Kim has told Kanye that she trusts him, but doesn’t trust the other women. She told him that if he even thinks about contacting his ex, he will pay dearly.” *deep sighs*
Just…sitting this right here.
Not even decades apart can time separate something as universal as music or art, and life will soon echoing:
Close enough but not too far,
Maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire, huah
All wet, hey you might need a raincoat
Shakedown, dreams walking in broad daylight
Three hundred, sixty five degrees
Burning down the house
[embed] http://youtu.be/J91ti_MpdHA[/embed] In an uncanny and ironic twist of fate, [the] “Girl on Fire” (Alicia Keys) will be joining musical forces with 2002 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee-“Burning Down the House” frontman (David Byrne) of the 80s group called The Talking Heads. [embed] http://youtu.be/g8D4AsLzlM0[/embed] The two will be performing for the annual Black Ball fundraiser for Alicia’s charity: (KCA) Keep a Child Alive, which since inception, has raised more than $18 million dollars for children and families in African who are affected by the countries HIV/Aids epidemic. Byrne, who has released six solo LPs between 1989 and 2004, has been collaborating with various artists, wrote a stage play with Fatboy Slim’s Norman Cook, and too, contributed to two songs on Anna Calvi most recent EP. He said that when organizers for the event asked if he would like to be involved with Alicia’s event (and performing with her), he immediately said “yes” and was “flattered and excited.” Keys, said to be a long-time fan of Byrne’s, referred to this pairing of theirs [as] “an honor,” and stated, “I’ve always been inspired by David Byrne and his ability to combine music and art. We have been talking about his new music and what we’re going to perform and just the thought of it is amazing!” This is Alicia’s 10th Black Ball event where past performers have included the likes of Bono, Sade, Jay Z, Baaba Maal and Sade. As with Byrne, (this year) Alicia has performed with other artists (past and present) like David Bowie, Pharrell, and Adele.
Just 2 months away from giving birth to [the] baby #2 addition to the Dean’s list, Alicia Keys and Swizzz Beatz celebrated their 1st born’s fourth birthday in style—his style. Although we can pretty much be rested and assured the baby with artists for parents: A music-producing dad and a mommy who’s a musician [by traditional/real meaning: one who plays an instruments]; Egypt a.k.a. “Egy” has no choice but to have musical DNA running through his veins. But for now, he’s already put them on notice that he likes running: CARS.
Just this past weekend, along with Carmelo Anthony in attendance and other close, personal friends; Alicia and Swizzz threw Egy an intimate, modest, car-themed birthday party with a specially designed (car shaped) birthday cake courtesy of Mashonda Tifrere—Egypt’s older brother’s mother/Swizzz’s ex. Although Alicia is about due [December], it’s still business as usual for the mom-to-be.
She also guest-starred as a mentor on last night’s NBC show: The Voice along with funkuristic phenom and weekly The Voice Judgementor: Pharrell.
While Demi Moore’s ex (Ashton Kutcher) and his fiancé (actress Mila Kunis) wait with baited Similac breath on taking up Demi’s offer to be available for help with their new baby Wyatt Isabelle, Moore isn’t exactly waiting by the phone for their acceptance offer either. Just last week, October 8, Moore was spotted looking hot, fresh-faced, and alive and well from having bounced back from the emotional cocoon she was rumored to have been in for quite some time now. In a long, flowing, Donna Karan cocktail dress with a sexy, plunging, neckline, Moore, (51 looking every bit of 31) attended the PSLA Autumn party all smiles and obviously back out of the scene, single, and ready to mingle.
But to look atDemi Mooreon the red carpeton Wednesday, October 8, you'd have no idea what she's been through in the past few years. The 51-year-old stunner was all smiles and flawless skin at the PSLA Autumn party and didn't look like she had a care in the world other than to enjoy herself immensely.
Her ex-husbands may be all about the babies right now (Bruce Willis and his wifeEmma Heming-Willis welcomed their second daughter together last May, and of course Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are busy doting over 1-week-old babyWyatt Isabelle), but this mom of three grown girls herself didn't look like any of that bothered her a bit.
Let them change diapers, I can imagine her saying in her head. Here's a head-to-toe view of Demi.
Meghan Trainor self-love single “All About That Bass” remains the No. 1 song in the country, more than 12 weeks after it entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Although its success has given Trainor the attention she previously didn’t receive behind the scenes as a songwriter, she has revealed that the song was originally shopped around to artists including Beyoncé.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, Trainor, who had previously written songs for Rascal Flatts, Sabrina Carpenter, and R5, confirmed that the track could’ve ended up in the hands of another artist. However, she points out that it’s possible that Beyoncé and the other artists never heard the demo for themselves.
“I’ll bet some of them didn’t even know the song was being pitched to them,” she said. “Some artists get thousands of songs pitched and they never know, so Beyoncé herself probably never heard it.”
Trainor goes on to explain the process of shopping the track, saying that label representatives had trouble identifying an appropriate artist to record the song.
“Most of these other artists’ A&R teams said they couldn’t do anything with the song because they didn’t have [the right] artist. That was the problem-there weren’t any singers at the time [who fit the song]. Adele was the only one, but she wasn’t rapping and singing sassy songs with swears in them. But I’m down-I get all the performing royalties!”
Elsewhere in the interview, she talks about her views on feminism, overnight fame, the criticism she’s received, and the direction of her upcoming album. (Music Times)
Robin Thicke has had one (literal) hell of a summer, and although it was riddled with reflection (his behavior during his “Blurred Lines” success), honesty (after having lost his wife because of-and then completing an entire rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “Here My Dear”—album of songs expressed wholly for the love of, and hopefully getting his wife back), and as well, by end-summer; riddled with confessions (of his state of being induced my being high on painkillers and other things that blurred his lines of self and reality).
“Cheating is not why we’re apart. We’re apart because we just couldn’t be together anymore…there’s a hundred different reasons...there isn’t just one, there’s a long list. I changed, and I got a little too selfish, too greedy, and too full of myself.”
Although Robin honestly admitted those factors contributed to the walk-out of his wife Paula Patton, his efforts did not win her back (after walking out last February) and after promoting her last project through last May, Patton sort of went M.I.A from the Hollywood scene until one appearance late August-and from there, she disappeared again.
Last week however, reportedly, after 9 years of wedded bliss + the blurred lines of his 1 year during his most successful album in all his twelve years of making music, despite the four year-old bundle of joy (Julian) that had come from it; Paula officially filed for divorce. Citing, yes, that dreaded Hollywood norm: “irreconcilable differences,” and stating has official date of separation was February 21, 2014.
Paula is seeking joint and legal custody of their son Julian, and has since-moved on.
No one had seen her for quite some time, and now (since the divorce filing), word on the street is that she is and has been dating another singer who goes by the name of Zak Waters and the two have been boo’d up for a while now.
Zak Waters is a soul-pop singer (like Robin) who remade the Ginuine song “Pony”
Since Paula’s divorce filing, Zak posted (allegedly, from Paula’s new humble abode) this pic and captioned it: “My New View.”
If you’re a mommy then you know that October is Pumpkin Patch month pretty much all over the world and some of the mommy’s of Tinseltown like JLo, Jessica Alba and Fergie (this weekend), and Halle Berry (along with Nahla and her dad) were definitely out this month in full swing for the festivities.
This weekend’s outing turned out to be better for Jennifer Lopez who (along with Jessica Alba and Fergie) took her “Coconuts” out to a Mr. Bones’ Halloween Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood, where she was looking everything but scary.
Dressed in a blue, waist-cropped plaid shirt, a white raked-ripped jean, and wedge-heeled designer short sneaker boots-after getting dropped off (by the most enthusiastic driver ever)
SHONDA RHIMES Covers@THRTalks About Being Tied to@ABC, Her "No Assholes Policy," & the "Odd" Misogyny of NYT Writer
in a white Bentley, adorable little Max and Emme got their faces painted, rode ponies, and slid down slides while JLo looked on through a pair of white Ray Ban-styled stunner shades, clutching her Chanel bag and striking a pose with her—“Booty” plopped down on a bale of hay.
Despite their public wrangles, earlier this month (in most pictures) actress Halle Berry appeared to adjust well to her baby-daddy Gabriel Aubrey accompanying she and their child Nahla to the fun. Considering the fact that had Halle gotten her way, she, Nahla and hubby Olivier Martinez probably would have been out of the country visiting some pumpkin patch across the water, of the words “trick” or “treat,” and “Boo!”, there’s no need in belaboring the obvious what this [court-approved] outing probably felt for Halle who, as well, was court-ordered to pay child support to Aubrey.
Having said that, although probably quite the treat for Nahla, “Booooo!”
This outing probably felt like the worse trick being played-ever.
Jennifer Lopez and her adorable twins Max and Emme went to the Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood on Saturday, and J. Lo wasn't even TRYING to be sexy, and she was still hands down the hottest mom there.
The 45-year-old singer/actress wore a plaid shirt, a pair of booty-hugging jeans and high top sneakers, and seeing as she wore a super short leopard-print dress to the Variety Power of Women lunch the previous day, this outfit is waaaaay tamer!
J. Lo and her kids rolled up in a white Bentley, and after their driver dropped them off, Max and Emme got their faces painted, went on the slide and even went on pony rides. J. Lo didn't get on the slide (perhaps she was worried about getting dirt on her white pants?), but we did snap her looking oh so sexy sitting on a bale of hay...

Now, in its second week and $26.8 million in ticket sales as of today, although the girl’s been gone from his life for quite awhile now, the movie Gone Girl must have made Ben Affleck’s ex and Gigli co-star curious to see what it’s all about.
JLo popped in the blockbuster and made it a Redbox night by twitpic’ing her dancing feet up on her theater chair in a pair of Doc Martin’s-in preparation to see the thriller based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn, about a man whose wife goes missing.
“There's a mystery that's surrounding this movie. To have an adult drama like this hold up so well for two weekends in a row is really unusual," said box-office tracker Rentrak’s senior media analyst, Paul Dergarabedian.
Other movies’ numbers behind Gone Girl’s $26.8 million are as follows:
“The diversity of choices at theaters is making for robust post-summer ticket sales.
We’re making up a lot of ground after a summer season that was down 15 percent,” said Dergarabedian.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Four new films couldn't catch "Gone Girl" at theaters this weekend.
The Fox thriller starring Ben Affleck as a man whose wife goes missing is poised to top the box office for a second week with $26.8 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday.

"There's a mystery that's surrounding this movie," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. "To have an adult drama like this hold up so well for two weekends in a row is really unusual."
Universal's "Dracula Untold" opened in second place with $23.4 million. The Disney family romp, "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," debuted in third with $19.1 million.
Two Warner Bros. films round out the top five. The horror "Annabelle" claimed fourth place in its second week of release with $16.3 million, followed by the Robert Downey Jr.-Robert Duvall drama, "The Judge," which debuted with $13.3 million.
Lionsgate's erotic thriller "Addicted" opened in seventh place with $7.6 million.
The diversity of choices at theaters is making for robust post-summer ticket sales, Dergarabedian said: "Were making up a lot of ground after a summer season that was down 15 percent."

Unsure if the rapper was working on changing his m.o (in that regard) by attempting to have the tryst with the stripper kept under wraps and instead, ducking off and having done unthinkable thing with the night-club stripper that obviously, he preferred to sweep under the rug and duck with (that could possibly leave some other unsuspecting dame stuck with), according to our sources, Rihanna, 26, had a lot to say about her Bae-thang [Drake]’s recent wild adventure and her disappointment about hearing such news.
According to Hollywoodlife.com Rihanna hopes that charges allegedly filed by the Houston stripper are false because she doesn’t want to see Drake get hurt but feels he should know better and hopefully learns something from this messy situation.
Rihanna’s stance on the situation is quite strong considering it is being alleged Drake threatened the stripper after having a sex with her (should she go public and tell it).
Although the source reports Rihanna (prefaced or concluded her) thoughts about it with by stating “no shade though,” they reported (and is quoting as saying):
“It’s a terrible situation for him and its not even funny-that’s the sad part. She (Rihanna) wants to laugh at it but it’s so serious, she can’t.

Super Bowl 2015 is near and lots of rumors have been going around about just what acts would be playing at the half-time show. It had been said that CBS/the NFL had their sights set on Coldplay, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Eminem but since we reported that, Rihanna most probably got ex’d out like a subject of interest disinterest on the light boards at the offices of Olivia Pope and Associates [due to her “fu@k you” comment to network giant as a result of their pulling her song “Run This Town” from the festivities for sensitivity reasons and Rihanna having been a victim of domestic abuse as well. Because of the Ray Rice elevator scandal occurring at the time, it was rumored that CBS didn’t want flack from viewers making the correlation Ray Rice’s actions and Rihanna have once being reported as the victim of domestic abuse.
Were sure Rihanna will be cheering her old chum Katy Perry along however, because as reported today, Katy is in the starting lineup slated to perform during the half-time show at Super Bowl 2015.
I know we reported that (as a result of Beyonce and Bruno Mars’ successful tours, popularity, and income increasing even more right after their half-time shows) the NFL proposed that going forward, whomever they selected to perform for the show would be asked to make a financial contribution to the league in exchange for how (afterwards) they would be sure to blow after their half-time show. As you know, Super Bowl is a yearly monumental television event in which even its commercial space is prime real-estate.
Well Katy may be the kind of girl that’ll ask [a quarterback, Trevor Knight] to call her-like she did during ESPN’s College Game Day, but she knows her worth. Katy also said: [but] “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl”...for the record.
