Well, all those rumors of a possible break up between Janet Jackson and her music mogul boyfriend Jermaine “JD” Dupri have been put to rest – again. Without a doubt, Janet loves her man. Janet makes it perfectly clear that she is comfortable with JD being in charge of every aspect of her life, and she’s not going anywhere anytime soon!
Jermaine and his daughter Shaniah sat in the audience while Janet presented an award at the 2008 Kids Choice Awards at UCLA on Saturday (3/29). In this video posted on JD’s YouTube channel, Janet tells her fans that she is still recovering from a severe case of bronchitis with a touch of pneumonia.
“I feel a lot better,” JJ tells the camera as JD directs the video. “I was very ill… for three weeks. I was on all kinds of [medicine].”
The video also offers us the first glimpse into the relationship Janet has with JD’s daughter Shaniah. It’s a cute moment with Janet urging Shaniah to bust a move for the camera. Shaniah politely declined. Oddly enough, Shaniah appeared to be shy around Janet – observing her from across the room as if she was meeting the legend for the first time.
If you recall, Shaniah’s mother, Pam Sweat, told my readers in an exclusive email that she had never met Janet personally, but that Janet treated Shaniah “very well.”
“At the end of the day, that’s all that matters to ‘mommy,’ “ Pam wrote.
It looks like Lil’ Mama snuck into Rihanna‘s dressing room, stole her beautiful dress and totally destroyed it by pasting rhinestones all over it! Jaws dropped as the rapper sashayed down the red carpet at the 2008 Kids Choice Awards wearing Rihanna’s dress. She looked a flaming Bar-B-Que ribs with hot sauce mess!

Just when I thought I was done posting for the day: According to MTV News, rapper Papoose and convicted gun moll Remy Ma, have been lovers all along – despite denials to the media.
Wait, that’s not all: in light of Remy Ma’s conviction on assault with a deadly weapon charges, Papoose plans to ask for Remy’s hand in marriage.
“We always wanted to keep our personal lives personal, so that’s why we never went public with our relationship,” he wrote in an e-mail to MTV News. “Right now, I just feel like she gotta live through me. Yes, we were scheduled to be married on a yacht April 27th. But due to circumstances beyond our control, we are now making arrangements to be married in prison.” READ MORE…
Papoose and Remy will have to wait a long time to consummate their marriage. Remy is facing 25 years in prison.
40-year-old rapper Jay Z is the new face of an upcoming Fendi marketing campaign:
According to Dr.Jays, Jay-Z was recently seen with Fendi head Karl Lagerfeld at a New York Fendi photo shoot. But Jay wasn’t there to watch the shoot…he WAS the shoot. Apparently Jay-Z will be actually be a model for Fendi’s upcoming marketing campaign. I bet Beyonce is mad jealous. No word yet when the campaign will launch.(Source)
Meanwhile, a U.K. concert promoter says the rapper is not to blame for poor ticket sales at a U.K. music festival. Jay was blamed for low ticket sales for this summer’s (08) Glastonbury festival. But Glastonbury festival organizer Emily Eavis insists tickets are down from last year’s figures because of the bad weather at the festival in recent years.
Yeah, that’s it. A little rain always keeps die hard fans away from a huge concert event. (Source)
Rihanna welcomed Spring wearing a pretty gown that looked like a pink Chrysanthemum. The Barbadian ambassador performed for The Believe Foundation as part of A Girls’ Night Out tour in at Vision Nightclub in Chicago last night. (Source)
After spending her first fitful night behind bars, rapper Remy Ma is said to be holding up well. According to insiders, prison officials placed Remy, real name Remy Smith, on a modified suicide watch.
Corrections officers removed anything from Remy’s cell that she could possibly use to hang herself. But rather than issuing her a paper jumpsuit – standard procedure with inmates on suicide watch – she was allowed to keep her prison jumpsuit.
The first few nights in prison are always the hardest for a celebrity. But eventually Remy will settle into a normal prison routine, and before she knows it, she will be a 50-year-old woman tasting freedom again as the prison gates clang shut behind her.
Meanwhile, Remy Ma’s attorney says he plans to appeal his client’s guilty verdict on assault charges, weapons possession, and attempted coercion.
The paparazzi spotted rapper Bow Wow leaving Club Goa in Hollywood last night with an entourage of hard legs in tow. We wonder if these are the same hard legs his former friend Ashley R made mention of in her drunken tirade at Luckies Lounge in Atlanta a couple nights ago.
The paps pestered Shad with questions which he understandably refused to answer. The paps say Bow Wow’s faithful but fearsome bodyguard Big D cleared a path through the photogs for Bow Wow who climbed into a waiting vehicle without mumbling a word.
For the record, we here at Sandrarose.com don’t believe Mr. Moss is gay. But we wish he would defend his manhood by releasing a statement or something.
Yesterday I spoke with R&B diva Keyshia Cole by phone. She said the video she shot with the ATL hip hop trio C-SIDE was ready.
This video was part of the 4 videos I told you she filmed last month. But the videos weren’t all shot in Hawaii as I originally thought. “Boyfriend/Girlfriend” was filmed in Venice Beach, CA.
The song is called “Boyfriend/Girlfriend” and it is making an impact on the charts. The group first gained notoriety on their Myspace page fueled by their hit “myspace.freak”. The song racked up over 1 million plays on Myspace.com. No doubt Keyshia and her manager Manny Halley took notice of their undeniable talent.
The video for “Boyfriend/Girlfriend” featuring Keyshia Cole will premiere on BET next week.
Ciara was too sweet to help her backstabbing friend Ashley R find a date on Room Raiders. This is the episode that some of my readers referenced in the comments. Here’s the summary of the episode:
Ashley teams up with Ciara to go through the rooms of Harley, Andre, and DJ, in what both girls describe as a haunted house, at least from the outside. After breaking the guys mailbox, Ashley and Ciara go through the rooms, with Ashley picking model Harley over snake saving Andre and bedless, mosquito infested DJ. Ciara leaves before Ashley makes her choice, so we don’t get to go through her room to see her goodies.(Source)
