Singer/songwriter Babyface and his girlfriend Nikki Pantenburg are expecting their first baby at the end of the year. No word on if they’re expecting twins. The couple met while Nikki was dancing on the set of one of his early music videos. Babyface has two boys with his first wife Tracey Edmonds, who he coincidentally met on the set of one of his videos.
Most women go weak at the knees just thinking about David Beckham, so a 100ft advert of the star sporting a pair of tight white briefs was bound to drive crowds wild.
It may have been his chiseled physique that drew hundreds of screaming girls to the launch of his new advertising campaign for Emporio Armani underwear.
But once the images were unveiled, all eyes were on Beckham’s legendary Goldenballs, which appeared to have been tampered with.
The 33-year-old is pictured relaxing in his underpants against a backdrop of sand and surf on Malibu Beach in California, but on close inspection his package seems to have benefited from a little computer enhancement.
Sean “The Pen” Garrett is tired of watching other artists gain the glory off his sweat and tears. Sean Garrett wants more! Your favorite artist’s favorite songwriter-producer–behind #1 hits such as Beyoncé’s “Check On It,” Fergie’s “London Bridge,” Nelly’s “Grillz,” Chris Brown’s “Run It!,” Ciara’s “Goodies,” and Usher’s “Yeah!”–takes center stage with his debut album, Turbo 919 (Bet I Penned It/Interscope Records).
“I love when people hear a hit and know I wrote and produced it but I love being on stage too,” says Garrett. “Performing my songs, what’s in my heart, that’s been my dream since I was a kid. Creating that excitement in people with music is a remarkable high, and nothing replaces it, not drugs or sex. I’ve been planning for this my entire life.”
The second single off Turbo 919 is “Come On In”, a sultry bedroom ballad turned lyrical wet dream with Akon singing about pulling his lover’s hair and putting her in handcuffs. I wish I had the clean version. This track is strictly for the grown folks.
This is the new video from Block Entertainment’s R&B artist JC for his hit song “Nobody Gotta Know”. JC plays a high stakes gambler with a lot more than chips on his mind. College Hill‘s Dorion makes his star turn in this video as a focused card shark playing the biggest hand of his life. Serious (Crystal) of VH1’s Flavor of Love & Charm School, plays Dorion’s neglected girlfriend who joins JC in the elevator for quickie sex during a break in the card game.
The video is inspired by the movie Casino Royale and was directed by Devin Hampton. Celebrity cameos include Jody Breeze and Chingy.

Shocking video of cowardly police officers beating a detainee in jail. The detainee was a transgendered man who refused to respond to insults and threats made by the officer. The officer beat the victim with closed fists and even handcuffs. Another officer held the victim while the brutal attack took place. That officer was already on probation and has been fired. The officer who beat the victim is on desk duty and cannot come in contact with prisoners.
As I previously reported, Ryan Cameron of the Ryan Cameron Show (V-103) broke the news of arrests which led to information in the 2-year-old murder case of rap artist T.I.’s personal assistant. According to The Cincinnati Enquirer, two men were arrested today in Cincinnati.
Hosea Thomas, 34, and Pardon Thomas, 40, were each indicted on charges of murder and felonious assault in the shooting death of Philant Johnson. 4 others were injured in the May 3, 2006 shooting which took place following a dispute at Club Ritz involving rap artists T.I. and Yung Joc.
Some time after T.I.’s entourage left the club, the assailants pulled alongside their vehicles and opened fire with automatic weapons. Three men in one van were hit and a female in another van was injured in the drive by.
Philant Johnson, 26, was pronounced dead upon arrival at a local hospital. T.I.’s childhood friend was 26-years-old.
According to Cincinnati Homicide Detective Tim Gormly, solving the case wasn’t easy, Gormly said. “We had trouble identifying the suspects due to (the shooting) happening in a moving car and there weren’t a whole lot of witnesses that saw the actual shooting.”
Eventually, little by little, the pieces came together, Gormly said, but even when detectives identified the Thomas brothers, months went by before there was sufficient evidence to charge them.
Since the shooting, Johnson’s family has called frequently looking for answers, Gormly said. Wednesday night, he finally had news that may bring closure to his mourning mother.
“A family that keeps in touch over two years – you know they really care for Philant,” Gormly said. “So yeah, it feels good to give them the news.” (Source)

SHE’S JUST HIS TYPE
They say Mis’Teeq member Alesha Dixon got the thrill of her life when secret admirer Pharrell Williams surprised her with a limo Bentley to take her home. Alesha had been flirting with him all night long at his Billionaire Boys Club signing at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, England yesterday. So Pharrell did what any man in his situation would do – show off and impress her with material things.
Lil’ Wayne sold almost a million copies of that dreadful CD, the name of which escapes me right now. So what? A local DJ remembers when CDs used to ship one million units to stores. Now we’re making a big deal because a junkie manages to sell close to a million CDs.
The record label probably bought 300,000 of those units to give away or hide in warehouses. Even label execs are at a loss to explain why people are celebrating a feat that was de rigueur for the industry just a few years ago.
“There’s no logical answer,” says Universal Motown President Sylvia Rhone on why people are tripping so hard on Wayne’s sales.
