Posted By: Honey German · 8/17/2012 8:56:00 AM



No surprise here.  The fight between Drake and Chris Brown will most likely end up costing them a few MILLIONS.

The company which owns the W.i.P nightclub and its sister nightclub, Greenhouse where the artists violent altercation took place in June, is suing both artists for $16 million, reports Huffington Post.  The lawsuit claims that Drizzy and Breezy’s fight has not only ruined the reputation of the club, but it has derailed a $4 million deal to expand its brand.

The suit, filed in Manhattan Civil Supreme Court on Tuesday August 14, alleges that the two artists “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman (that would be Rihanna)” When Brown and Drake “crossed paths,” they “began to fight violently with each other,” the suit says.

The lawsuit goes on to explain that both parties “arrived with his own small ...

Talk about straight coming out yo face!!!! BLUNTLY.

50 Cent has hit Kanye West with the mother of all low blows by labeling his girlfriend Kim Kardashian just plain ol "TRASH"'.

When asked his opinion on KimYe during a recent interview with XXL Magazine 50 says: "'You know how it is? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure."

He also shared his thoughts on the Kanye's touching ode to Kim titled 'Perfect B****'.  "'I mean, if that man feel like she's perfect, then she’s perfect. He could mean it and you’ll end up singing the words to it because he’s Kanye" he says.

He also made sure to let folks know that there is no such a thing as the perfect woman saying:  "I’m not sure. The smartest guys I know have lost being a bad judge of character in that area."

Nivea Ends Rihanna’s Endorsement Deal: “We Stand For Trust, Family & Reliability”

Posted By: Honey German · 8/9/2012 12:07:00 PM

Rihanna‘s endorsement deal with skincare brand Nivea has suddenly come to an abrupt end after Stefan Heidenreich, the new head of Nivea’s parent company Beiersdorf, decided Rihanna just doesn’t go well with their core values, and has dropped her as the face of the brand.

“The advert starring Rihanna was a no go,” he told the German media. “I do not understand how to bring the core brand of Nivea in conjunction with Rihanna. Nivea is a company which stands for trust, family and reliability.”

And we must admit that the singer who appeared in a series of advertisements for the brand in celebration of its 100th anniversary,  is really not the face of “trust, family and reliability” with all those crazy wild pics and tweets she stays posting.

Rihanna who we know has no problems with expressing her distaste for folks on twitter has already tweeted a photo of ...

Frank Ocean Reveals His First Love Was A Man “I Feel Like A Free Man Now”

Posted By: Honey German · 7/4/2012 9:08:00 AM

Frank Ocean‘s debut album ‘Channel Orange’ received some great reviews earlier this week, some dared to compare him to the late great Michael Jackson.

But one thing has overshadowed the greatness of the album, his mention of bisexuality in three of his songs, which immediately prompted everyone to assume that Frank  was using his debut project to also come out of the closet as a gay man.

Now in order to clear things up and finally “free” himself, Frank took to his Tumblr on Tuesday night and posted a private letter which he wrote last year,  in which he breaks down his first same-sex relationship.


“I met somebody. I was nineteen years old. He was too. We spent that summer and the summer after, together.  Everyday almost. And on the days we were together time would glide. Until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often spend ...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Star Mimi: ‘I’m Moving On From Stevie J”

Posted By: Honey German · 7/3/2012 2:29:00 PM


One can only hope these are sincere words coming from this woman’s mouth.

I’m guessing that after having watched herself be disrespected and simply degraded on last night’s episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Mimi Faust announced that she’s finally moving on from her relationship with Stevie J.

On Monday night Mimi took to twitter to let her fans know that she is done with being cheated on, lied to and simply made of a fool out of by Stevie and his side piece Joseline.  In case you missed it, on Monday night’s episode Joseline revealed to Mimi that not only had she been sleeping with Stevie for months, but was in fact pregnant with his child.

Via a flurry of tweets Mimi goes on to say that she is in fact glad that she did the show because if she hadn’t, she would have been clueless as ...

Lauryn Hill Faces Three Years In Prison After Pleading Guilty To Tax Evasion

Posted By: Honey German · 7/2/2012 10:47:00 PM

Lauryn Hill took to her Tumblr a few weeks ago to explain that her anti-consumerism beliefs had kept her from paying her taxes for several years.

Lauryn says: “I abandoned greed, corruption, and compromise, never you, and never the artistic gifts and abilities that sustained me.” She said that she went “underground” to protect her family from the military industrial complex and the media, prompting more than a few raised eyebrows from readers of the rambling note.

Too bad for her paranoid reasoning was not a good enough excuse for the government who is now wanting the mother of  SIX to only pay thousands in fines but also serve prison time.

The singer has pled guilty to three counts of “intentionally and willingly” failing to file tax returns for the years between 2005 and 2007, where she earned $1.8 million.  According to TMZ she now faces THREE years in prison, ...

Amber Rose Subpoenaed To Testify Against Kim Kardashian In Divorce Proceedings

Posted By: Honey German · 6/25/2012 10:26:00 PM



Ohhhh my.  Guess it’s payback time for Kimmi!!!

Kris Humphries is all set to subpoena Kanye West‘s ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose.  For what? You may ask…………..well because she has previously stated that Kanye and Kim Kardashian had hooked up several years ago and not recently as Kim has been claiming.

According to RadarOnline Kris’ legal team “will absolutely be issuing a subpoena for Amber Rose to be deposed because she has very relevant information and could contradict Kim’s timeline about when she and Kanye West became romantically involved. Kris’ team hasn’t spoken to Amber yet, but they are hopeful that she will be a cooperative witness. If Kris’ lawyers determine she will be a hostile witness, they will still depose her because they just want to get to the truth,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.

In early 2012, Amber gave an interview to Star in which ...

Kim Kardashian: “Yes, My Sex Tape Introduced Me To The World”

Posted By: Honey German · 6/18/2012 1:16:00 PM



Hope you’re all happy now!!!!  Yes we are.

Five years after her sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J was released, Kim Kardashian says she understands that this had a great impact on her career.

“Would you be where you are had there not been a sex tape?” Oprah asked Kimmi on Sunday’s Oprah’s Next Chapter.

“You know, I think that’s how I was definitely introduced to the world. It was a negative way, so I felt like I really had to work ten times harder to get people to see the real me” the 31-year-old reality star said of the sex tape, which she brokered a deal with Vivid Entertainment to distribute it.

She goes on to shut down that nasty little rumor  that she in fact was the one who released the tape, saying that she’s always been concerned about “humiliating the family”.  When it was released, ...
