Amy Winehouse dissed Kanye West during her performance at the Glastonbury Festival over the weekend. Amy told the crowd, "at least I'm not opening for a c*ck like Kanye!" We hear you, girl. Isn't it a shame when even a crackhead singer from across the pond knows you're an arrogant obnoxious jerK?
Bow Wow hosted So So Def Radio Saturday night on V-103 for Jermaine Dupri who hasn't been back behind the boards since his very public spat with V-103 jock Greg Street 3 weeks ago.
Bow Wow held it down for JD, dropping the exclusive joints like the new 50 Cent and Game. That one hour between 9-10 PM on Saturday nights is the best hour in radio if you love real Hip Hop served up hawt and spicy the way it used to be! Greg Street does his thing on Saturday nights too, but JD drops the exclusive joints.
Of course Freddy O was there in the studio doing his production thing (oh, you didn't know?)

They say T.I. was in the studio putting the finishing touches on "Paper Trail", his much anticipated follow up to "T.I. vs T.I.P."
According to Noel Gallagher, front man for legendary British rock group Oasis, Jay Z is the #1 reason the Glastonbury rock festival did not sell out for the first time in its history. Rock fans, including Gallagher, protested the choice of Jay Z as the headliner of the festival.
So what does Jay Z do for his opening number? He mocks the legend by attempting to sing the group's hit song "Wonderwall". The result was a major embarrassment for Hip Hop.
Jay Z came off sounding like little Lil' Darryl forgetting the words to the song and playing with his daddy's guitar. Thank God the crowd knew the words by heart and drowned him out. The rock fans who bought their tickets did so knowing Jay Z was the headliner. So of course they were polite to him. But the true guitar heads stayed home in protest of Jay Z as the headliner - and I can't say I blame them.
I could do that when I was her age. What's the big deal? But why is a ball girl running out on the field in the place?
According to loyal reader ThatCarmen, this video is a successful viral ad for Gatorade.
At this time the creative team from Element 79 responsible for creating the "Ball Girl," ad and concept was not givent he green light to talk about the project. The "Ball Girl" video was shot on location during and after an actual game between the Fresno Grizzlies and Tacoma Rainiers. The footage was shot on HD and later edited to look like a Grizzlies batter had hit the ball a out past the left field foul line. The shot and catch was completely choreographed with the ball girl played by stuntwoman Phoenix Brown having marks to hit, and the ball being added later in post. The ball girl was attached to wires was pulled up the wall by 2 stuntmen off to the side.
“It was so low-tech,” Smith said of the stunt. "We had her run, and she would jump, and they just gave her a little extra oomph. It was really very, very simple."
Whoever hacked Sohh.com's website also helped themselves to personal info of everyone connected with the site (staff and users). That means passwords, sensitive information, emails, etc., are all floating around the Internets as I type this. Someone sent me lists of personal information culled from Sohh.com's servers, but I quickly deleted the email. I want no parts of that.
Sohh.com is still down but hopefully they will survive this attack. We all need to eat.
A loyal reader just sent me this pic with the caption, "is it just me or does Idris Elba have the dreaded Noassatall disease?" I really can't tell since Idris' jeans are sagging so low. Noassatall disease is rare in black men. But what do you ladies think?
Kobe Bryant wasn't thinking about losing the NBA championship to Boston when he took his daughters Natalia and Gianna Disney Land for a fun day on the rides. Studies show that every parent has a favorite child among their brood who they lavish the most attention on. Can you tell who Kobe's favorite is?
Former lovers Jennifer Lopez and Sean Combs face separate multi-million dollar lawsuits according to online reports. Jennifer Lopez was subpoenaed to appear in court to provide testimony in a $130 million lawsuit against Sean Combs and his former artist, Jamal "Shyne" Barrow. Shyne is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence for a shooting that injured two people at the now defunct New York Club in December, 1999. Combs was acquitted of all charges in the shooting.
The civil lawsuit was filed by victim Natania Reuben, who was shot in the face. Combs gave a deposition in March, and now Lopez who was dating Combs at the time will give her side of the story. A judge will decide if Combs is liable for the damages caused by his former employee.
Meanwhile, Lopez was slapped with a $5 million lawsuit by a flight attendant who said J-Lo's dog Floyd "lunged" at her when she walked past him during a flight in 2006. According to TMZ.com, Lisa Wilson filed suit in a NY court yesterday (6/26) claiming she fell over and injured her back during the attack.
The $5 mill is to cover her mounting medical expenses following surgery due to "debilitating" back pain.
If Wesley Snipes gets his way he'll be leaving the country for good rather than face federal time. According to WENN, the troubled actor begged a judge to return his passport so he can shoot two films outside the country.
Snipes, 45, was found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to 3 years in prison in April. He's currently free on appeal and is seeking the court's permission to shoot two films in Britain and Thailand.
In court documents, Snipes' attorney assures the judge his client won't flee. "Were he to abscond under these circumstances, it would destroy his ability to earn a living for the rest of his life," said attorney Daniel Meachum.
Meachum adds, "Mr.Snipes will, of course, voluntarily return after his work on this film - as he has done each time he has been granted permission by this court." Maybe his attorney forgot that time in 2006 when Snipes failed to return from Nambia?
When Jay z performs at the Glastonbury festival in England this weekend, he will have a lot more on his mind than The Today Show mistaking him for Joe Budden. Jay's appearance in the Glastonbury festival lineup has drawn heavy criticism from locals and artists alike.
According to festival organizers, this year's festival has not sold out for the first time in its history. Noel Gallagher — guitarist and chief songwriter for Oasis - thinks the reason is clear: Jay Z.
"If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it," Gallagher complained back in April. "If you start to break it, then people aren’t going to go. I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance."
Jay Z responded in an interview with U.K. radio host Tim Westwood on Wednesday, saying, "At the end of the day, these barriers that they have are only put up to separate us. There is only good music and bad music."
"The world should be all about mixing culture," Jay-Z said. "Hip-hop is music in its art form. It should be accepted and respected. It’s all the same thing, it’s just coming from a different perspective."
But critics insist rap fans would not approve of rock bands appearing at Hip Hop festivals.
