Swizz Beats admits loving Alicia Keys has made him a better man

Check out what Swizzy had to say about loving Alicia Keys

“It’s just a feeling,” Swizz said of he and Keys’ relationship. “Love is a word that’s powerful but the feeling is even stronger…To identify that feeling is something that’s amazing because it doesn’t only come from your partner. It comes from your love for music, your love for people, your love for a lot of things, and I think that once you identify the feeling of love, you’ll be a better person.”
“I’m a better man. I think that having love in your life, it just has that effect. Because then you spread love. You can’t enjoy love without spreading love. I just think that it all falls in the pocket.”
Doesn't that make you feel all warm and gushy?

Mariah Reveals acupuncture was helpful in getting pregnant


In the continuation of the Access Hollywood interviewt hat gave us her announcement  last week, Mariah revealed that acupunture not only helped with her getting pregnant, but relieving stress as well.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Mariah revealed that she took on acupuncture after hearing that Celine Dion had also used the treatment.

“I was [getting acupuncture] like once a day at least. It was on a schedule, everything. For the first time in my life, I spent time in one place.”
Carey then went on to explain that the acupuncture relieved her stress, which helped her get pregnant.
Wow...thanks for sharing MiMi.

TV personality Star Jones, left, LeToya Jackson, center, and NeNe Leakes (Real Housewives of Atlanta) were snapped on the set of Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice in NYC earlier this week. Their challenge was to pitch a tent in NY.

Nick Cannon buys balloons to celebrate Mariah's pregnancy!!


Mariah Carey's baby daddy...oops husband Nick Canon is overjoyed as he grabs some celebratory balloons in New York, NY on October 28th, 2010. After months of speculation by the media, the happy couple are ready to break their silence for the first time regarding this pregnancy. Only two years ago, they were close to breaking similar news when she had a tragic miscarriage.

Tiny charged with drug posession

According to TMZ:
Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, 35, will be arraigned on Monday in Los Angeles for misdemeanor drug possession — the same day her husband, rapper T.I., 30, is due to turn himself in to start serving an 11-month sentence at an Arkansas prison.
Cottle’s arraignment and T.I.’s incarceration both stem from a Sept. 1 traffic stop in West Hollywood. Police arrested the Atlanta-based newlyweds on suspicion of drug possession but only Cottle was charged. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday it would not prosecute Clifford Harris Jr., the rapper’s birth name, despite finding four ecstasy tablets on him.
That decision was reached in part because of the jail time facing T.I, 30. He was ordered to return to prison on Oct. 15 for violating his probation on weapons charges.
Wow, I feel sorry for her kids.

Kendra's TMI moment

Kendra shares that she wants the world to know she still craves Hank's sweet stuff. In a recent interview with E! the reality star spilled all her biz after being an innocent question — What does Hank plan to do after he retires from the NFL?
“Hank went to college and got a 4.0 throughout college in business,” she said. “I think he’s going to be just fine…I don’t care what he does. I didn’t marry Hank because he’s an NFL player. That was a little extra. It’s hot seeing him in those pants and the bulge in his pants, of course. That’s my taco meat right there. I call him my taco meat.
“He’s so hairy,” she said. “Right now he’s in Minnesota and he’s like a bear. He’s like, ‘Where’s my barber?’ I shave his arms and I trim his chest and everything.”
SMH. Since this is Kendra we’re talking about we’re pretty sure “and everything” means she is handling the hair on his fuzzy nutsack too!!! Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
Even though Kendra made the decision not to live in Minnesota, she makes it clear that her Hanky-poo still makes her horny. So horny they have resorted to cyber sexin’ it up!
“We’re a little bit sexually frustrated,” Kendra said about living so far apart. “We have to have Skype sex. We have to. We definitely have to.”
“I’m going to go to Minnesota as much as I can,” she said. “I don’t care if we have to spend our Christmas and Thanksgiving in a small hotel room. I don’t care as long as we’re all together as a family.”
Damn Kendra...did you have to share that much information ?? SMDH

Jennifer Lopez's Twins Make Modeling Debut!

Oh, babies!

Jennifer Lopez's 2 1/2-year-old twins, Max and Emme, make their modeling debut as the faces of Gucci's new children's line — and UsMagazine.com has your first peek.

They appear in the ads along with mom.

"It's the first time I have worked with my kids in that way," Lopez, 40, tells the new Us Weekly (on newsstands now). "It was a totally special experience."
In honor of the collection (with pieces ranging from $80 to $1,600, in stores in November), Gucci donated $1 million to UNICEF's Schools for Africa initiative and $50,000 to Lopez's charity the Maribel Initiative, which promotes greater access to health care for women and children worldwide.

"It's exactly why I'm excited to be a part of this," says Lopez, who admits she and husband Marc Anthony were hesitant to have their kids participate until they learned of the charity connection. "Now there are two Gucci spokesbabies for a beautiful cause!"
Lopez tells Us the twins "had fun" posing.
"I did a photo shoot when they were 3 weeks old, but now that they are 2 1/2, it's totally different!" Emme is already showing signs of a fashionista. Says  mom, "Emme picks out her own outfits and likes to sleep in her princess dress." As for her son, Lopez admits, "It’s hard to get Max dressed. He prefers to run around the house with no clothes on."

Is Fanny still capitalizing off her "suicide" attempt? Say it aint so...

Fantasia's got a lot to talk about these days: Season 2 of Fantasia for Real only has 3 episodes left; she’s on tour; she still needs to make “Back to Me” move some units. And all this adds up to her talking about…
The one topic she said she was over talking about. Except now, she’s saying it was never her idea to talk about it in the first place.Here’s what she told Russ Parr about her little ordeal this morning:
Russ: You’ve been through a lot, and I, personally, I even said it on the radio, I just felt like you were put back out under fire a little soon. Do you feel like you needed a little bit more time to get yourself together?
Fantasia: Oh, of course! Of course I did, but the crazy part about it is that it always falls back on the commitments that you’ve made and agreed to. When it comes down to this business, and I hate to say it like this but it’s so true: they don’t care about what you’re going through. “Get yourself together, we’ll give you 2-3 days, when you come on back, we need you to tough it out and get in there.” And that was kinda like the whole prep [sic] talk from everybody.
For six years I’ve always taken everybody’s advice and wanted to do what everybody felt should be done, or best for the career. And now I’m at a point where I know for a fact that I’m [rebelling] right now. I don’t really wanna do anything crazy, but it’s my life and I’m gonna live it. I’m good now. I’m very very good, and ready to go back on the road, but doing me. And not even taking anybody’s advice like that.
Yea? We don’t buy that. The label can make you do interviews, but you can just as easily and forcefully refuse to talk about certain sh*t.
And for those of us who were wondering how little Zion is taking all this adultery and suicide talk, Fantasia says she’s got this.
To be honest with you, my daughter is totally clueless right now to everything. She only watch Disney Channel, ’cause there’s a lot of things going on the TV right now that I don’t want my baby to see. So we keep her on Disney Channel… Even with my Lifetime movie, my daughter hasn’t seen that yet. And I don’t want her to til she gets a certain age where she’ll be able to swallow some of the things that I’ve done.

NPR fires Juan Williams over anti-Muslim remarks

Veteran journalist and political analyst Juan Williams was fired by National Public Radio yesterday for making what they called “anti-Muslim” remarks.
In reality, Williams was merely expressing the sentiments of many Americans in this post-9/11 era when he said that he gets “worried” and “nervous” when he sees people dressed in Muslim-style clothing on airplanes.
Williams, 56, made the comments Monday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor”.
Bill O’Reilly, who made news himself when he told the ladies of ‘The View’ that Muslims caused 9/11, said, “The cold truth is that in the world today, jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”
Williams, who is a frequent contributor to Fox News, agreed, and added:
“I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country,” he said. “But when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they’re identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
In a statement released by NPR, the company said Williams’ comments “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”
NPR needs to get in touch with reality. All of a sudden it’s considered politically incorrect to express realistic fears now that we have a Muslim president in office?

Monica and Lebron James encounter bullying and racism online

Just weeks after admitting that racism still exists in America, NBA superstar LeBron James retweeted several racist “tweets” posted by one of his followers on social networking site Twitter.com.
According to ESPN.com, LeBron said he just wanted people “to see what type of words that are said toward me and towards us as professional athletes.”
Stars like LeBron expect to be treated with kid gloves by those around them.
But with the emergence of mini-blogging networks like Twitter.com, they openly expose themselves to negativity, harsh criticism and vulgarity from bullies who enjoy unprecedented access to the stars.
Gone are the days when celebrities were protected from the harsh realities of life by their handlers and publicists who monitored all forms of communications between their star clients and the public.
Two nights ago, R&B Diva Monica announced to the world that she was quitting Twitter after being bullied by a psycho who frequently targets urban celebrities on Twitter.com.
Monica’s BFF Keyshia Cole was able to convince Mo to make her Twitter page private. But the problem won’t end there.
Ironically, Twitter.com claims to have a policy in place for dealing with harassment. Maybe they will put that policy into action one day.

Will all procedures there are risks and complications involved. Gabby’s costs were reduced in exchange for providing valuable advertising to the clinic.

Is Mariah suffering from an illness?

For months,there have been rampant, unconfirmed rumors, that songbird Mariah Carey is pregnant with her and hubby Nick cannon’s first child. Well, it should be evident that Mariah is in fact suffering from some sort of illness.
 The industry grapevine has it that Mariah is suffering from “a serious medical problem” that could potentially threaten her career.
The rumors and innuendoes took on new life over the weekend when Mariah, whose face was pale and bloated, flew into Singapore on Friday (Sept. 24) to perform at a Formula 1 event.
A listless Mariah gave a lackluster performance in front of 110,000 screaming fans in Singapore. But as fan videos clearly show, Mimi had to sit to catch her breath numerous times during her show. Even if she was 6 months pregnant she wouldn’t be that short of breath.
Then she slipped and fell onstage — and had to be helped to her feet by assistants. Mariah couldn’t even remove her own shoes without help! None of this sounds like a pregnancy that isn’t even showing.
 Many of us have seen the photos of Mariah leaving a Beverly Hills doctor’s office in recent months. And Perez Hilton posted pics 2 months ago of Mariah’s grossly distended belly.

Could Mariah be suffering from bleeding fibroids, an enlarged uterine cyst or some other gynecological problem that is sapping her strength?
While it’s obvious that she is not pregnant, we can only speculate what the “serious medical problem” could be.
Let’s face it, if a narcissist like Mariah was pregnant, she would have announced it by now so she can reap the benefits of all the attention her announcement would bring her.

Chris Brown accused of stealing a beat for his new track!

Chris Brown is in hot water for stealing the beat of another track for his own club single “Yeah 3x”.
Calvin Harris was stunned to hear the similarities between his single “I’m Not Alone” and brown’s club-tinged song off his upcoming “F.A.M.E.” (Forgiving All My Enemies) album.
Over the weekend, the Scottish musician took to his Twitter page to complain about brown hijacking his beat: He has every right to be pissed: brown’s synthesized beat and Harris’ are nearly identical. Though the track was produced by a DJ, it behooves chris brown and his label to make sure the music is free and clear of samples or rights.
Harris plans to take legal action against brown and his record label.

Chris...that was not a good move hun.

Jermaine Jackson can't pay his child support! Time to put in a call to baby sis Janet!

According to a TMZ exclusive, MJ’s older brother Jermainejust asked a judge for a break on the amount of child support he has to pay for two of his son’s, Jermajesty and Jaafar.
Jermaine just filed new child support papers in L.A. County Superior Court — obtained by TMZ — grousing that he’s expected to pay $3,000 a month in child support for sons Jaafar and Jermajesty … even though his average monthly income for the last year has been under $1,100.
Jermaine claims his baby mama Alejandra not only earns more than him … but she gets a free ride along with his kids at the Jackson compound, thanks to Katherine’s generosity. Katherine has asked Alejandra to move her family into a nearly Jackson condo but Alejandra has refused and Katherine won’t put her foot down.
Maybe Katherine is going easy on Alejandra ’cause she added to the family tree on two branches. In case you missed it: she’s Randy’s baby mama too.
So what CAN he afford? Jermaine wants the judge to reduce his payments to $215 a month. SMDH
We wonder if Janet would come to his rescue.

Suge Knight Pulled Over In L.A., Car Searched

Embattled former CEO Marion “Suge” Knight can't seem to keep himself out of trouble.
But considering he was recently arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, taken to court for child support, and facing a $6 million tax lien, he can mark this latest run in with the law as a slight win.
According to TMZ sources, the former Death Row head was pulled over in L.A. around 3 AM for a traffic violation when police realized he was driving on a suspended license.
The cops put Knight in the back seat of a patrol car while they rifled threw his car and belongings.
After the search came up empty, Knight was given a ticket for driving with a suspended license and released.
This will add another court date to the already hefty judicial schedule for Knight.
As recently reported, Suge is suing Kanye West for $1 million after he was shot in the femur during a 2005 VMA Awards after party that Kanye was hosting.
After a failure to mediate the matter last month, the case could go to trial.
In July an arrest warrant was put out on Knight for missing a court date for, ironically, driving on a suspended license.

Well Lindsay's been sprung out of jail!

LiLo is a free woman yet again. Just hours after being denied bail by Judge Elden Fox, LIndsay’s lawyer Shawn Holley Chapman appealed that decision.
According to TMZ reports:
“Judge Fox ruled earlier Friday … Lindsay could be held without bail. But apparently the Judge’s ruling flies in the face of California law, which gives defendants the right to bail in misdemeanor cases.
Judge Patricia Schnegg, Assistant Supervising Judge for the L.A. County Criminal Courts, just threw Judge Fox’s bail decision out the window. Judge Schnegg has set bail at $300,000.”
Lindsay’s bondsman posted bail around 10 PM last night and she left Lynwood before midnight. She will be expected to abide by a number of conditions following her release, including:
Lindsay will have to get a SCRAM bracelet (this will be her third) within 24 hours — and under the terms of her bail, she is not allowed to be around known drug users … and must submit to search by law enforcement at any time. Also, nightclubs will be a major no-no … Linds has to stay out of places where alcohol is the “chief item of sale.”
This is not teaching her a lesson at all . I'm team Lindsay but she walks away from this thinkingher celebrity is what gets her out of trouble. We're rooting for you mama, but I don't know about this one.

Actor Gary Dourdan dodging creditor!

Despite a steady 20-year acting career, Gary Dourdan owes one company a lot of money.
According to TMZ reports Dourdan owes one company nearly $100,000. And since their attempts to get the money from him has yielded nothing, they’re heading to court.
HSBC filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court — obtained by TMZ — claiming Dourdan owes $88,024.95 for credit card purchases over the last four years … plus cash advances.
According to the docs, HSBC has tried several times to get its money — but Dourdan isn’t answering those annoying calls. I guess when you're out of work, that stuff happens. We've been there boo.

Bye Bye Lindsay



Lindsay Lohan posed for mugshot number four this morning after being taken into custody immediately upon arriving at her probation hearing.
As expected (and almost to our surprise), Lindsay arrived in court for a probation hearing this morning after having failed two drug tests last week. And as TMZ reports, it seems Judge Elden Fox was out to teach Lindsay a lesson no one saw coming.
Lindsay Lohan is in custody … after Judge Elden Fox shockingly denied her bail … and Lindsay could be sitting there until October 22. But LiLo’s lawyer just told us, the judge was dead wrong.
Judge Fox did not hear any arguments from the lawyers before making his ruling. Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, told TMZ on the way out of court … the judge had no legal basis for denying her client bail.
Lindsay was handcuffed in court before being taken into custody.
It’s shocking because the underlying offense is a misdemeanor, and people connected with the case were telling us the judge had to offer Lindsay bail.
As for Lindsay’s reaction … she was shocked when the judge remanded her into custody. Lindsay looked at her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, before being taken out of the courtroom. She was taken from court in a single Sheriff’s vehicle, covered by a blanket.
A spokesman for the LA County Sheriff’s Office says Linds will be in “administrative segregation” for her safety and the safety of the jail system. This time though, there will be no early release unless the judge says otherwise.

Wire Talk: T.I. & Tiny Heading to Jail?

Rumor has it that Rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris is going back to Jail to serve three years & that his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle will be doing a year. According to a statement released by Atlanta U.S. Attorney Sally Yates, the self proclaimed “King Of The South,” could be going back to the place he was in just a couple of months ago.
U.S. Attorney Sally Yates told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a statement released Friday:
“We are very disappointed in Mr. Harris’ recent conduct, we will make our sentencing recommendation at the revocation hearing.”
The rapper and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle could face up to a year in California state prison, after they were found with ecstasy in West Hollywood on September 1st.
To make matters worse, not only did T.I. fail a drug test when traces of codeine were found in his system, but he was also traveling with a convicted felon named Cortez “C-Rod” Thomas.
All infractions are violations of the terms of T.I.‘s three-year probation for attempting to purchase machine guns and silencers just before the BET Hip-HopAwards in October of 2007.
This is what MediaTakeOut.com stated:
MediaTakeOut.com has some SAD NEWS to report. While nothing is set in stone a person close to Tiny told us that both SHE and her new husband TI are making preparations to GO TO JAIL . . . for an EXTENDED TIME!!!

The insider explained, “At first I though they were just making plans ‘in case’ they both [got locked up]. But no, they’re acting like they’re both going away.” The tipster continued, “Tiny’s already got a drug possession case in Georgia, and the lawyers told her that they hand out jail time in LA like it’s nothing, so she’s preparing herself.”


Who gets custody of the children if and when the couple get LOCKED UP. The insider explains, “Tiny’s mom.”


This is such a sad story. We don’t even feel sorry for TI or Tiny, it’s the kids who will be

WITHOUT parents for months and possibly years that we feel bad for.

Rihanna faces legal troubles!

According to legal docs filed Thursday in New York -- and obtained by TMZ -- a Brazilian promotion company called Unique Sports and Marketing signed a $1.7 million agreement to book Rihanna for three Brazil shows in November.

Problem is -- Unique claims the people who said they signed the contract on Rihanna's behalf -- a company called Vegas Style Entertainment -- never repped Rihanna ... never ever.

Unique claims Vegas Style hatched a fraudulent con scheme  -- and by the time the Brazilians figured it out  ... they had already forked over $825,000.

Unique wants $4,685,000.  Calls to Vegas Style were not returned.

LiLo tests positive for Cocaine...she faces 30 days in the slammer

According to TMZ.com, troubled actress Lindsay Lohan failed multiple drug tests — including testing positive for cocaine — in the days since she was released from a UCLA drug treatment center.
This means the doctors at UCLA were wrong when they recommended early release for Lohan.
Lohan was originally sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in a drug treatment center for violating probation on a DUI charge. She ended up serving only 13 days behind bars due to the overcrowded jails.
Following her release from jail, Lohan checked into the rehab facility at UCLA, where star-struck doctors determined she was not a chronic substance abuser, and recommended an early release from rehab.
Of course that was a mistake. But there is something odd about people on the west coast who continue to coddle and pamper spoiled, rich celebrities like Lohan.
This story won’t end until Lohan kills herself or someone else. I’m glad I don’t live in LA.
Lindsay, please clean up your act mama.

TI had more than X-pills

Superstar rapper T.I. is back in the feds’ crosshairs with new allegations he had more than Ecstasy when he was busted earlier this month. The Grammy winner, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., had codeine and marijuana and tested positive for opiates, according to a petition signed by his probation officer.
On probation from a gun-possession case that landed him in federal lockup for seven months, T.I. could end up back in jail because of the extra violations. “We are very disappointed in Mr. Harris’ recent conduct. We will make our sentencing recommendation at the (probation) revocation hearing,” U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said Friday.

Katherine Jackson files lawsuit


Katherine Jackson filed a lawsuit in LA  against promoters AEG Live for failing to take care of her baby boy MJ as he prepared for their tour. Ms. Katherine’s lawsuit – also filed on behalf of Michael’s three kids – claims AEG promised to provide life saving equipment and a doctor to make sure the King of Pop stayed healthy as he got ready for his This Is It concert series in London.
“AEG’s representations to Jackson were false because in reality AEG was merely doing whatever it took to make sure that Michael Jackson could make it to rehearsals and shows and AEG did not provide a doctor who was truly looking out for Jackson’s well-being and did not provide equipment,” the lawsuit stated.
An AEG rep says he hasn’t seen the suit yet, but if it exists, Ms. Katherine’s barking up the wrong tree. He says at the time of Michael’s death, he hadn’t officially agreed to the agreement she says they broke.
AEG Live President and CEO Randy Phillips said after Jackson’s June 2009 death that Murray was enlisted to act as Jackson’s personal physician and was to be paid $150,000 a month by AEG Live as the singer prepared for the concerts.
Jackson, however, died before signing the agreement. As a result, Phillips said it was not binding.
Still, the new lawsuit says agreement or not, Dr. Murray was AEG’s employee.
The suit also said AEG Live was responsible for the actions of Murray in the care of Jackson. Murray, however, was not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
“At the time of his death, Michael Jackson was under the immediate care of a doctor selected by, hired by, and controlled by AEG; indeed AEG demanded and required that Michael Jackson be treated by this particular doctor to ensure that Michael Jackson would attend all rehearsals and shows on the tour,” the complaint stated.

Was Gabourey's Elle Cover photoshopped?

Critics are outraged and claim that actress Gabourey Sidibe not only seems to have been digitally lightened, but that the plus-size star was not depicted in the same type of full-body photo as the other three cover models and that her hair style is unflattering. But a statement from Elle says these critics are analyzing the situation way too much.Elle said, “Nothing out of the ordinary was done. We have four separate covers this month and Gabby’s cover was not retouched any more or less than the others… If you take a look at the portfolio, each of the women were shot in different ways and for different reasons.”
What do you think? Was this a conspiracy to make Gabby more acceptable to Elle’s readers? Or just the latest case of Photoshop gone wrong? What are your thoughts?

LeAnn Rimes Fires back at Wendy Williams

LeAnn Rimes is firing back at Wendy Williams after the daytime talk show host called her affair with Eddie Cibrian “sloppy.” On her syndicated talk show Thursday, Williams, 46, discussed Rimes’ recent Shape interview in which she justified why she cheated on husband Dean Sheremet. “It’s all very sloppy,” Williams said, adding that Rimes also shouldn’t have referred to Cibrian’s sons as her “boys.” Said Williams: “The boys have a mother, and her name is Brandi [Glanville].”
Rimes, 28, quickly shot back (via Twitter): “All I know is Wendy Williams done pissed my mamma off! I don’t wanna be in her path. To say, ‘I’ve reserved myself a place in hell?!’ I’m incredibly disappointed to see someone with that kind of platform use it for such negativity and could be so mean and judgmental about a situation they know nothing about…I don’t like how it happened either, said it a million times, but this is out of control.”

Kimora Sad About About Split From Baby Phat

Kimora admitted last night that her partying ways with Baby Phat was unexpected:

“It’s over. It’s absolutely over. It was very abrupt and sudden. I was shocked,” she told the Daily News last night at Macy’s Herald Square. She wouldn’t confirm that she was pushed out, but said: “It’s very, very sad for me. It was totally unexpected.”
But the mom of three, who was greeted at Macy’s juniors department by hundreds of screaming fans, is still very much in command of the rest of her empire. She’ll relaunch her KLS Collection soon, and Kouture by Kimora, her under-$40 line exclusively for Macy’s, has got her feeling positive. “It’s onward and upward, and I’m very happy, and I’m very excited,” she says. “Sometimes, you’re thrown a curve ball in life.”

There's no doubt that Kimora will definately pursue other projects to keep her busy!
 

Taylor Swift To Debut Song About Kanye West At The VMAs


OK, when will this end? It seems that lovely Ms,. Swift will perform a song relating to the unfortunate incident with Kanye at last year's VMA's Let's hope this is put to rest for good after this.

Aretha Frankin wants Halle Berry to play her in biopic! Ummmmm yea....

Damn, Aretha was fine in this throwback pic above, but Halle Berry still hasn’t signed on to play her in her biopic. ReRe has been quite adamant about using Halle for the part and is not backing down…this has been going on for 3 years now, SMH:






Aretha Franklin wants Halle Berry to show her some R-E-S-P-E-C-T and sign on to portray a younger version of the Queen of Soul in an upcoming biopic. The 68-year-old singing legend sent out a press release this week revealing her choices for Hollywood stars to play top roles in a planned film about her life and career.

Besides Berry, Franklin says she wants another Academy Award winner – Denzel Washington – to play her father, the late C.L. Franklin, a prominent Baptist minister and civil rights leader in Detroit.


Her wish list also includes Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard as Motown star Smokey Robinson. The movie, for which Franklin says she’ll be reviewing the script next week, will be based on her autobiography, “Aretha: From These Roots,” a best-seller a decade ago. Messages seeking comment were left by The Associated Press on Friday for representatives of Berry, Washington and Howard.


In her release, Franklin says the actors in question are “enthusiastic about the project and have agreed to take on these roles, subject to further negotiation.” The statement says Washington, for one, “was very interested in the role,” and Franklin “also had a very positive response from her in-person conversations with
Terrence Howard and others.” Franklin is one of the most honored musicians in American history, having won numerous Grammys, including a lifetime achievement award; the National Medal of Arts; the Presidential Medal of Freedom and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame





If Halle still looked like this, and ONLY played the role of Aretha when she was younger…this idea might have actually worked…but Halle is 40 years old. Ummmmmmmm Ree Ree, let's rethink this boo.

Chris Brown's mother apologizes for Twitter comment

Obviously the comment didn't go over well with MJ fans or fans of Chris Brown, so the harsh statement was removed from her page, but not before damage was done.

After receiving harsh criticism over the comment, Ms. Hawkins issued a statement to USA Today and explained what she meant by the insensitive tweet.
In her brief statement, Ms. Hawkins states that she meant to express her son's love for the late icon and that she hopes that Chris Brown will carry out his legacy in music.
“I'm so sorry that the tweet I sent yesterday was misunderstood,” Ms. Hawkins wrote. “What I meant to say is that Chris has always been inspired by Michael Jackson's music and his career.”
Although the backlash has seemed to relax a little, Ms. Hawkins did tweet this to haters:
"Angels continue to lift ur heads ever so high and ask God to guide and lead u throughout the good and the bad. Stand strong on his word!!!"

Awww look how cute they look! JHud looks like she is settling nicely in the role of motherhood!

Fantasia Says 'Nobody Was There To Help Me'

It's been one month since Fantasia's suicide attempt and it seems the pain of that experience is still fresh. The singer has been steadily promoting her new album, Back to Me, and when she visited "The Wendy Williams Show" on Friday (September 10) she opened up about her recent drug overdose and said many members of her professional entourage had left her side.

"At the time, I wasn't really thinking about anybody," Fantasia told host Wendy Williams when asked whether she had considered daughter Zion.
"Nobody knows how heavy it gets. You see the glitz and the glamour and you think, 'They got it, they got it all,' but a lot of times when you come into this industry you have people that say that they are there for you, but a lot of times they are just there to get what they can get or because money is involved," she said, starting to cry.
The single mom revealed that many of her supposed confidants were nowhere to be found during her time of need.

"I am 26 years old, and so many times, I've looked around and noticed that everybody that started with me is now gone and nobody was there to help me clean it up. So I had to do it all by myself."

Fantasia's overdose occurred shortly after a lawsuit was filed by the wife of Antwaun Cook against the songstress charging that she had been in an adulterous relationship with Cook. Cook's lawyer, Nicole Sodoma said the singer was not responsible for breaking up the marriage. "He knew Fantasia Barrino but the failure of his marriage can in no way be blamed on anyone except the two people that were a part of the union — Paula and Antwaun," Sodoma said in a statement.
The singer is focused now on moving past her dark period by speaking openly about her story in an effort to connect with her fans. The "American Idol" alum's recent LP debuted on the Billboard 200 at #2.

What do you think about how Fantasia is handling promotional appearances in the aftermath of her suicide attempt? Share your thoughts below.

Tiny's little "problem"

This week alone, Paris Hilton was arrested (again) for drug possession and Lindsay Lohan shuffled home after she’d finished serving two weeks of her 90-day jail sentence, as well as in-patient residency in rehab. As a society, we’ve become numb to these kinds of occurrences. Another day, another celebrity arrest, right?


Still, it’s hard to pretend as if T.I. and Tiny’s arrest Wednesday night does not disappoint.

Police allegedly smelled marijuana emanating from the $400,000 Maybach (which T.I. bought as a “gift” to himself after leaving jail this year); then, they arrested the lovebirds at a traffic stop on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood.

T.I. who was just released from prison in March on weapons charges, clearly wasn’t thinking about his probation.

Was smoking weed all that necessary for him if he just got out of jail, has six kids, and a probation hanging over his head?

And, what about Tiny? The poor thing seems so in love with T.I. that she can barely put her foot down and tell him no. No, baby, you cannot ruin your life, especially after having narrowly escaped a longer jail sentence last year. No, baby, we do not need to be smoking weed right about now.

Sigh.

While I’m tempted to get supremely annoyed at the stereotype of ignorance that these two are perpetuating with this arrest, Clifford Harris and Tameka Cottle do not represent all of the community, nor do they represent all celebrities.

If we take every arrest and/or bad action of celebrities—black, white, Asian, Latino—as our own we’ll never get anywhere “as a people.” Thank goodness I don’t wear black celebrity lives as my personal scar.

As for you, T.I. and Tiny—and you, DMX and Mischa Barton and Charlie Sheen, I know you’re performers, but sheesh…the act is getting old.
