Rumors began swirling tonight on micro-blogging website twitter.com that R&B Diva Keyshia Cole was in labor in a local Cleveland hospital. Apparently, a TNT sportscaster mentioned on air that Keyshia’s fiance, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson was at the hospital with Keyshia.

Gibson later returned to the arena to help his Cleveland Cavaliers take on Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat.

But is Keyshia really in a hospital in labor?

Now, here’s where things get a little murky. I reached out to Keyshia Cole’s rep tonight for a comment. The rep said — among other things — “no comment.”

I was also told that no statement would be released tomorrow since her rep does not respond to rumors.

So, there you have it. Read between the lines.

Apparently, rapper Nicki Minaj made an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman today in NYC. I have no clue why. I’m sure Dave has no idea who she is. A booking error maybe?

Well, I spoke with that sexual chocolate Sean Garrett last night and he told me Nicki is a beast in the studio. I can just imagine…

Sean G also says Nicki Minaj is next up. But is there any other female rapper on the scene besides her and Lil Kim? Sean says his new single with Nicki should be dropping any minute now. Maybe tonight…

If I get one more email from reader’s claiming the chick in all black is Dwight Howard’s baby mama Royce Reed, I’ll scream. Anyone with eyes can see it’s not her. And why would she need to enter a bikini dance off contest to win Clippers tickets? C’mon son, get a clue.

UPDATED:
It is her according to this tweet (via ATLien):

Damn, I lost another bet. When will I learn?

In these tough economic times, does it make sense for a C-list R&B singer like Solange to take up Djing and rob real DJs of a paid gig? Well, DJs are making their voices heard by complaining to bloggers such as myself. I can’t post their emails because they are in sensitive positions working for radio stations and fear losing their jobs.

Hopefully, Solange will read this post and realize that while she thinks DJing is cute, she is selfishly taking gigs away from real DJs who have families to provide for. Solange can always depend on her sister Beyonce for financial assistance if times are hard. Maybe she should try recording a new album instead of taking the easy route and taking food out of babies mouths?

Loyal reader Grace writes:

Solange is a messs. Djing has turned into something that unsuccessful artists get into because they can’t bring in paper doing their art. And Solos a shame to all the other hard-working DJs out there, like The Knowles clan hasn’t enough paper for a decade already. SMH

Besides the declining polls, here is more evidence that the honeymoon is over for U.S. president Barack Obama. US NEWS describes another prelude to Obama’s fall from grace:

This time last year, the Obama Store was teeming with customers. Ideally situated in the basement of Washington’s Union Station, the store was filled with consumers eager to buy anything with Obama’s likeness while others took pictures of the life-size cut-outs of the president and first lady. Now, the Obama Store is boarded up.

How quickly things change in a year.

Beyonce is still considered A-list (for now), but superstar Rihanna is commanding (and getting) more money than Beyonce to sit front row at the prestigious fashions shows when she attends New York’s Fashion Week next week. Beyonce Stans will not be happy to hear this. But such is life. They’ll get over it!

The NY Fashion Week excitement begins on Feb. 11.
