Jay Z Stans fans who received the special casino slot machine invites to his NYE bash at the 40/40 are disappointed this morning. For instance, Ne-Yo was showing off his invite which adorns his desk at his studio. Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Jay-Z’s new 40/40 club in Las Vegas did not pass their inspection.

That’s too bad for Jay Z and his Stans fans. I’m sure some hotel in Las Vegas will be happy to cancel someone’s New Year’s Eve plans to accommodate the jigga and BeYaki who had planned a concert to ring in the New Year. Pardon me as I stifle a yawn. This is all very boring, but some of you care so I’m posting this story.

The venue won’t open as previously planned, throwing a major curveball to the rapper and entrepreneur.”Unless Jay-Z and his team miraculously come up with certain licenses and certificates by Sunday, then they won’t be able to go on with their New Year’s Eve party plans,” a source familiar with the situation tells us.

Not only that, Jigga and his team have to refund all tickets for the opening, which will add even more costs to their starting on the wrong foot Sin City venture.


I like Jia. Years ago Jia and I used to spar on the Black Voices boards where she was a very popular poster. If you’re not familiar with Jia, she’s an ex-porn star – well, I don’t know about the ex part, lol – and she lives in Atlanta.

In this video from her Jia TV channel on YouTube, Jia speaks the truth on the sordid Raz B affair. Thank God there are a few people out there who can see through the bulls*t.

Caution: strong language.

In 2008 it’s going to be harder for America’s Most Wanted criminals to disappear in a crowded city. The FBI and Clear Channel have teamed up to display images of criminals on Clear Channel’s digital Billboards in 20 major cities across America.

The 200 billboards will display 3-story high images of fugitives’ mugs, missing children, or public safety info in real-time in cities such as Atlanta, Miami, New Jersey, LA and Las Vegas. (Source)

Reverend Run, 43, and his wife Justine Simmons adopted an American-born baby girl in September, who they named Miley Justine Simmons. Miley was one month old when they brought her home and will make her debut on the family’s MTV reality series, Run’s House, in January.

Awww, she’s adorable!

Now that Calvin has a hit reality show, one of his secret kids has been revealed. “I should be with him on the show, but I’m not,” his secret son, nine year old Julian Corrie Broadus tells Star Magazine which acquired the exclusive rights to the story of Snoop’s other baby mama, thirty-four year old Laurie Holmond.

Laurie tells Star magazine: “We had a great relationship-until June of 1997, when I suddenly heard on the radio that he had gotten married. Calvin told me I wouldn’t understand, and he was right, I wanted nothing to do with him,” Laurie tells Star Magazine.

But three months later Laurie ended up back in bed with Snoop. The two hooked up at the Le Reve Hotel in Hollywood, and nine months later, Julian was born.

“When I told Calvin I was pregnant, he said, ‘I don’t know how I’m going to tell Shante.’ But when Julian was born, Calvin was right there, and he took responsibility like a man.” (Source)

Reports are that actor Eddie Murphy and his fiancee, producer Tracey Edmonds will tie the knot in Tahiti tomorrow. As you know, Tracey and about 14 of her close friends celebrated her upcoming union with a bachelorette bash held at TAO Asian Bistro on December 8 at The Venetian Hotel and Casino.

A 20 ft. tall Buddha statue presided over the party as the ladies dined on Chilean sea bass, lobster wontons and slices of a sugar rose-covered cake. Tracey proudly flashed her 8-carat yellow diamond engagement ring as she twirled on the dance floor.

Murphy and Edmonds, who divorced singer/songwriter Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds in June of this year, want a casual ceremony on the South Pacific island. An insider says, “They’re getting married on 28 December in Tahiti. The wedding will be intimate, with just immediate family and a few friends.”


Word has reached my ears that Hip Hop’s “Diamond Princess” Trina is going around Miami introducing NBA star Kenyon Martin as her new boyfriend. This must be news to his wife and baby mama Heather Martin. I hadn’t heard that they got a divorce. Which probably explains why Trina’s name is nowhere on the invitation.

My sources tell me Trina is busy organizing a big New Year’s bash (which also doubles as her new boo’s birthday party) at a spectacular mansion in Miami. Believe me I tried to get in there to get all the exciting shots for you but I was informed Trina already hired “a camera crew.”

If you’re thinking about heading on down there, you should be aware that the event is invite-only. I’m told Kenyon is flying all his NBA and Hip Hop pals down to Miami. Hardly anyone outside of his tight circle of friends are invited. So the only way you’re getting in is if you are on the arm of a baller.

But there is another way you can attend: Trina is going to great pains to make sure this NYE bash goes off without a hitch. So to that end, Trina has taken out ads on Craigslist and Ethnicity Talent advertising for models who are willing to put up with NBA ballers and rappers feeling them up all night for $200-300.

Of course, this is all hush hush and you didn’t hear it from me.

Trina “The Diamond Princess” & Kenyon Martin NEED MODELSModels needed to host new years party in Miami.

Remember Ohsoadd who posted this video on YouTube in response to B. Scott‘s gettin’ dirty to Janet’s “Feedback”? Well, he’s back and he’s pissed. His name is Michael and he wants my readers to know he is a gay man – not a tranny boo boo.

Michael wants to correct my statement on why your men don’t come home at night. He makes sense but sometimes a woman can do everything right at home and her man will still creep.

Oh, and I want to welcome B. Scott to my blogroll! He emailed me today and I told him I am a big fan of his. Double kisses B. Scott!
