Widely believed to be Hip Hop's gay rapper (second only to Busta Rhymes), Canadian rapper Drake performed live at the Sungod Festival at UCSD in San Diego, CA on Friday (May 14). It must be hard for Drake to shake that 'wheelchair Jimmy' image from his Degrassi Jr high days. I hear that Drake's hired beard Maliah Michel is back in Texas working the pole for her sugar daddy who owns the strip club where she works. She tried her best to help defuse the gay rumors surrounding Drake. But she only had so much to work with...

How are you? I just came across this pic you posted of Larry King carrying a "vintage LV bag." It's actually an AKOO bag that Tip gave to Larry as a gift after his interview on the show on Thursday. Within the bag he also gave him an AKOO sweater and a pair of jeans.
I had no clue that singer Bobby Brown dated Janet Jackson until I read an excerpt in his autobiography “Being Bobby Brown: The Truth and Nothing But …”
“I can recall that I started drinking heavily when Janet Jackson and I broke up. Before I met Janet I would never drink hard liquor, I only drank beer. But after our break up, I started drinking hard liquor abundantly. I took the way our relationship ended very hard. Not to say we were head over heels in love, but she was someone I had a lot of feelings for. Besides, we were young and naive. I was only about 19 or 20 years old. Young love is no joke!”
Thanks to loyal reader Lisa Jackson for sending this scan of a now defunct Fresh magazine featuring lovebirds Bobby and Janet on the cover!
I had one word when I watched this video after loyal reader Debra emailed it to me last week: shocked!
The video was filmed during a dance competition in California on April 10. It shows 5 scantily clad 8 and 9-year-old girls dancing to Beyonce's hit song "Single Ladies."
Now that the video has gone viral all over the Internet, two of the parents have come forward to defend their lack of parenting skills. The two parents appeared on Good Morning America today (I guess the other parents were too embarrassed to show their faces on TV).
Cory Miller, the father one of the dancers, said the video was "taken completely out of context," and the performance was "completely normal for dancing." Sure it is -- completely normal for dancing in a strip club! I've seen strip moves that are tamer than the dance steps these children performed.
Another parent, Melissa Presch, defended the children's skimpy outfits, which she claimed were necessary for flexibility.
"The costumes are designed for movement, unrestricted movement and to show body lines," she said. What body lines???
"We're very proud of our daughters and their accomplishments," she added.
Well, I hope that in a few years these two idiot parents will be equally as proud when their daughters come home knocked up and make them instant grandparents.
Rapper T.I.'s appearance on CNN's Larry King Live last night shed new light on a man who, in his brief 29 years on earth, has accomplished and experienced more than grown men twice his age.
T.I. thoughtfully explained his recent stint in a federal prison for possessing firepower that even the police don't use. T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr., talked about the death of his childhood friend, Philant Johnson, being the force behind the paranoia that increasingly drove him to collect a stash of illegal weapons.
And he mused about the love of his life, his fiancee Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, who he plans to marry next month.
But most impressive was T.I.'s interaction with King. Though decades apart in age, T.I. easily elevated himself to King's level rather than force King to come down to his.
T.I. left an indelible impression on the minds of millions of people who tune into Larry King Live every night, who may not have realized that a thug gangsta rapper can be an intelligent one too.
The following is a glossary of all the big words used by T.I. in his guest appearance on Larry King Live last night.
Glossary of T.I's Big Words

When rapper Gucci Mane was released from the Fulton County jail at midnight on Wednesday (May 12), one of the first calls he made was to Atlanta's premier party planner Jamahl King of S.T.E.P.S. Events to coordinate his big Welcome Home dinner at the swanky Georgian Terrace Hotel.
As you can see from these pictures, Jamahl (pictured) did not disappoint! In less than 24 hours, Jamahl laid out quite a spread for Gucci and his guests inside one of the huge Georgian Terrace ballrooms.
Well-heeled guests such as R&B singers/reality show stars Monica and Kandi Burruss; rappers Big Boi, Shawty Lo and Wacka Flocka Flame; producers Jazze Pha, Sean Garrett, dined on filet mignon, miniature beef Wellington, peekytoe crab salad, pecan crusted chicken, bananas foster and freely flowing champagne!

In a revealing interview with UnsignedTheMagazine.com, actress LisaRaye gave a little more insight into her recently broken heart, her philosophy on life, making amends with her ex- husband, the former premier of T&C Islands; and her strained finances.
LR described her current status as "so on the market":
You’ve got to do something different and step out on faith. You cannot bring your old baggage into something new. Learn from that, move forward and give love a chance. Love is a wonderful thing, it’s very powerful. I’m a fan of marriage, I’m a fan of belonging to someone and I would love to belong with someone because it’s easier to fight life with a partner than not. Someone to have your back, bounce ideas off of, to encourage you and build you up, someone that’s ultimately your best friend.
Her philosophy on life and her finances:
“Prayer, and failure is not an option. I love life, I love living life, and I love laughing. I prefer to look at the glass as half-full instead of seeing it as half-empty and trust this, I had my ‘Lord Have Mercy’ Fund off to the side. That’s the money that you need to have when it gets bad, but I’m still in this economy like everyone else thinking about, ‘okay, where’s the money coming in?’ My reserves are dwindling down, so that is why I’m back to business, back to doing me, back to my career, so I’m very grateful that I have an opportunity and a place to return to, that my fans are telling me ‘we want to see you on the big screen, we miss you, welcome back.’ And that speaks volumes to me.”
