Katy Perry's much-hyped music video for her #1 hit "E.T." hit the blogs today at noon. While Katy is very talented I don't get why this song is #1.

The video, which features stunning CGI graphics comingled with alien sex and numerous scenes of Katy and Kanye floating through space, is visually appealing. But I was sufficiently bored enough to fast forward to the last scene where Katy is revealed to be half alien/half animal.

Sorry, but extraterrestrial sex (and Kanye's wack verses in this video) don't excite me.

Despite reports that singer Ciara, 25, is currently dating NY Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire, 28, she was spotted arriving at the New Jersey Nets vs. Knicks game with Lala Anthony's Stud cousin, Dice, at Madison Square Garden last night. This is not the first time we've seen CiCi and Dice together in public. While Ciara dating man whore, Amar'e, makes good gossip fodder, it's more likely that Dice is the one stroking Ciara's kitty at night. Rumors have swirled for years that Ciara is an undercover lesbun, but Ciara has always denied the pesky rumors.

Grand Hustle rapper Yung Dro released his first music video for "Polo Down" off his mixtape, "I Co-Sign Myself." Click here to see the vid.

In the video, Dro waxes poetic about his love for the high priced Ralph Lauren Polo line. While he is known for his lucid raps about everything from Polo button downs to home grown kush, it is Dro's sexual preferences that's raising eyebrows this morning.

Yesterday, a random groupie tweeted a series of private messages that were allegedly sent from Yung Dro to her DM box. One message in particular caught everyone's eye because it was in reference to fellow Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka.

In the message, Dro allegedly requested a 3-some between himself, the groupie and Waka. Particular attention was paid to the abnormal size of Waka's peen. Dro goes by the username @dropolo on Twitter.com.

Normally we wouldn't entertain such filth on this blog, but Dro didn't exactly deny the authenticity of the private tweets in his profanity-laced responses to the groupie on Twitter. But he did vigorously defend his heterosexuality.

Exposing online conversations that are meant to be private is par for the course on Twitter. Many a rapper's come hither DMs (direct messages) have been exposed by aspiring jump offs. You would think that rappers would be a little more cautious about how much they reveal to total strangers in the DM (Direct Message) box?

While I don't for one second believe that Dro is Down Low or Teh Ghey -- this information does lead one to wonder if men are indeed as interested in the size of another man's junk as the next woman.

What do you kids think?

Japanese power company officials have conceded defeat in their battle to contain the leak of dangerous levels of radiation from the Fukushima Nuclear plant.

Japan today announced plans to encase the leaking reactor in a tomb of concrete amid reports that the radiation fallout from Japan is affecting our food supply in the United States.

Additionally, radiation levels in seawater outside the nuclear plant is over 5,000 times the normal level. Fishermen have been warned to operate in waters at least 13 miles from the damaged nuclear plant. But that's not nearly far enough for American consumers and seafood restaurants that rely on fish imported from Japan.

According to online reports, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced very low traces of radiation particles were found in milk in Washington state and California.

Results from screening samples of milk taken in the past week in Spokane, Washington, and in San Luis Obispo County, California, detected radioactive iodine at a level 5,000 times lower than the limit set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, officials said.

But traces of radiation can build up in the body over time. Click here to read the signs and symptoms of radiation poisoning.

Exact details haven't been revealed, but Japanese officials, with the assistance of U.S. gov. agencies, plan to shut down all four crippled reactors and abandon attempts to cool down the exposed fuel rods. The final move involves pouring tons of concrete onto the reactors to entomb the reactor cores and stop the leak of radiation.

Former rapper and dancer, Kevin Federline, is about to be a father for the 5th time.

K-Fed, a former backup dancer for his ex-wife, Britney Spears, has two sons by Brit (Sean Preston, 5, and Jayden James, 4), and 2 other kids with sometime bit actress, Shar Jackson (daughter, Kori, 8, and 6-year-old son, Kaleb). Now his current girlfriend, ex-volleyball player Victoria Prince, is knocked up by the fertile 33-year-old reality TV star.

USmagazine.com reached out to Federline's other baby mama, Shar, to ask her thoughts about the new addition to the family. "If it's true, best wishes!," Jackson responded.

Federline endured a lengthy court battle with Spears that ended when she was taken out of her home on a stretcher bound for the psych ward at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Their divorce was finalized on July 30, 2007.

"I have come a long way," he told Access Hollywood last year. "All of us have...my whole family. It's gotten so much better from where we were."

Atlanta police arrested a former NBA ref who assaulted former Atlanta Hawks star Dominique Wilkins following the Hawks game at Phipps Arena Wednesday night.

Rashan S. Michel, 36, told police Wilkins owed him money for 3 suits Wilkins purchased years ago.

Following the game, Michel exchanged words with Wilkins before punching him in the chest and also hitting a security guard. Michel was taken into custody by Atlanta police and charged with one count of simple battery following the incident, Officer K.Y. Jones with Atlanta police told the AJC.

Michel worked as a NBA referee from 1997 to 2001 before falling on hard times. Wilkins was not injured in the incident.

"The fan was promptly arrested and was taken into custody by the Atlanta Police Department," Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche said in a statement to the AJC. "At this time the Hawks have no additional information or comment regarding this situation."

Update:

It looks like Mr. Michel got the worst of the exchange. Loyal reader Brenda writes:

Hello, and hope all is well, just wanted to add a lil info to your post about the fight last night well, it was more like a BEAT down! It wasn't a brief as most think, I was there and I also have the booking photo that shows Rashan got his ass whooped!

Just 2 days after firing her father Mathew Knowles as her manager, burlesque singer Beyonce, 29, was seen leaving an office building in New York City. She wore a coat with a fur lined hood over her head to hide her face, and it appeared as though Beyonce had been crying. Sources say Bey is ecstatic now that the paparazzi have begun to take a little interest in her again. Bey was accompanied by her ever-present bodyguard, Julius.

Music mogul Sean Combs, 41, was seen out & about in Miami Beach with his concubine, Cassie, 24. The former singer-turned-socialite wore her hair pulled up in a tight bun and her head shaved on both sides.

The last time singer Lauryn Hill performed live in Atlanta, she left her most loyal fans feeling frustrated and unimpressed.

According to an industry insider who attended the concert for free at Atlanta's Center Stage theater in January, the 35-year-old mother of 5 hit the stage 3 hours late for her advertised 9 p.m. show.

Lauryn promptly confused her fans by announcing that she was tired of "playing the same music night after night." Hill told the shocked audience that she wanted to play something different. She then instructed her band to speed up the music, which rendered her classic hits unrecognizable.

The insider said Hill urged the audience to sing along, saying, "I want crowd participation."

"But nobody could participate because NOBODY knew the music!," said the fan. "Everybody was looking around like 'WHAT SONG IS THIS???'"

"It was new music completely," the frustrated fan continued. "The lyrics were the same, but you had to be on ecstasy to follow the music!"

Well, Lauryn Hill and her road manager, Atlanta's own sexual chocolate, Bumni, heard all the complaints and they want to make it up to enraged Atlanta fans. When Lauryn Hill hits the stage tonight in Atlanta, she promises to be on time and drama free.

Hill tweeted the following message to her followers on Twitter.com yesterday:

Professional beard Amber Rose, who is enjoying newfound fame as rapper Wiz Khalifa's blow up doll, was seen wearing a body-hugging bandage dress in NYC yesterday.

Mariah Carey's husband, Nick Cannon, was seen carrying a book called "The Genius in All of Us" as he arrived at LAX airport in LA yesterday. Nick, who keeps alarming homeland security for some reason, was forced to strip again at the security checkpoint. If you recall, he was ordered to strip down to his civvies last time he flew out of LAX. Nick was wearing a grey hooded jogging suit and his favorite Louis Vuitton backpack. Nick tweeted that his pregnant wife Mariah was fine and that he was excited about the imminent arrival of his twins. He also tweeted sarcastic responses to his Twitter.com followers who hate his new rap song entitled, "I'm So Wack". Yes you are, Nick.

Troubled singer Chris Brown showed off his new Lamborghini Gallardo automobile that he probably bought himself to compensate for his shortcomings. Brown's new album, F.A.M.E., sold just 270,000 copies in the first week, despite the fact that he has over 2 million followers on Twitter.com. Brown was hoping to sell at least a million copies.

Pop singer Rihanna seems to be at a crossroads in her life. After releasing her first single, "Pon De Replay," at the tender age of 17, she has worked nonstop on the road touring to support her 7 albums. Her hawt body and keen fashion sense draws stares and compliments from males and females alike. But her infamous temper and personality disorders have combined to make her the loneliest girl in the world -- literally.

To promote her platinum album, LOUD, Rihanna's camp hatched an idea to bring a widely read urban blogger out on the road with her to document Rihanna's life behind the scenes.

The blogger was one of Rihanna's personal favorites (if not her most favorite). Rihanna once told a label exec that reading this blogger was one of her guilty pleasures. She confessed that she was "turned on by the negativity" even as she railed against it publicly.

So when that blogger turned down Def Jam's all expenses paid invite to join RiRi on tour, Rihanna took the rejection very hard.

At age 23, Robyn Rihanna Fenty is chronically single, desperately lonely and wealthy beyond her wildest dreams. Her friends -- including her ever-present and calming life force, Melissa -- are all bought and paid for with some of Rihanna's millions.

It is on this backdrop of despair, loneliness and fear that Rolling Stone magazine paints a raw, revealing look at Rihanna's personality disorders, hidden demons, and her life after Chris Brown.

On the cover of this week's Rolling Stone (on newsstands Friday (April 1st), Rihanna looks disapprovingly over her shoulder at photographer Mark Seliger's camera. She wears delicately tattered, barely there shorts made of a fragile material called chainmail -- tiny metal squares inked together to form clothing that looks almost painted on.

She told her 4 million followers on Twitter.com that before she put the shorts on she had to heat up the cold metal links with a blow dryer.

"I hate the sound of metal on metal. And if something isn't even, it weirds me out – like if my girlfriend hits me on the right side of my butt, it feels numb on the left," Rihanna says, revealing her obsessive compulsive disorder for the first time. She admits to habitually cracking her knuckles and she's a compulsive boob-grabber.

On lifting the restraining order against Brown:

"That's my decision It doesn't mean we're gonna make up, or even talk again. It just means I didn't want to object to the judge. We don't have to talk again ever in my life. I just didn't want to make it more difficult for him professionally. What he did to me was a personal thing – it had nothing to do with his career. Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can't perform at awards shows – that definitely made it difficult for him. That was the only thing it was going to change, so I didn't care. But you can never please people. One minute I'm being too hard, and the next minute I'm a fool because I'm not being hard enough."

On her song "S&M" and experimenting obsessively with sex toys:

"I like to take charge, but I love to be submissive. Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your shit. That's sexy to me. I work a lot, and I have to make a lot of executive decisions, so when it comes to being intimate, I like to feel like I'm somebody's girl."

"I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned – you gotta stop [and go] get the whip from the drawer downstairs. . . . I'd rather have him use his hands."

Troubled singer Chris Brown just moved into a luxury condo last month, but his new neighbors already wish he would move.

According to Radar Online, Brown, 21, is very disrespectful of his neighbors who live in the 2 year old condo on Fountain Avenue in West Hollywood, California.

Brown paid $1.6 million for the 3,000 square foot, 3 bedroom penthouse which occupies the two top floors. The condo boasts stainless steel appliances, an open floor plan, 10-foot ceilings, a spacious patio with "incredible city views" and direct elevator access. Its listing brags that the condo is "A perfect place for entertaining."

But his neighbors aren't entertained by the loud racket caused by Brown and his friends who come and go at all hours of the night.

“He just moved in around a month ago and he’s already received a warning," a source told Radar Online. "The tenants are just really worried – if he’s like this straight off the bat, they wonder if it's going to get any worse."

“The building isn’t meant to be some kind of party house," the source continued. "Residents don’t want that and they don’t want to live in that kind of environment. The tenants are complaining about him and the noise he’s generating, they’ve even had to give him at least one warning. He needs to keep the volume down – people are sick of his behavior.”

“Chris Brown is a problematic tenant, to say the least,” the source says. “He has his posse traipsing around until the late hours of the night, he’s loud and totally disrespectful of his neighbors. He’s driving the other tenants in the building crazy."

Why didn't he just buy a house instead?

Yesterday, pop singer Rihanna excitedly retweeted a message from a rabid follower who announced that her Minneapolis show had sold out in just 68 minutes. The apparent sell out comes after reports surfaced that Rihanna's U.S. concert dates were selling slowly. Too bad Rihanna didn't check with the Target Center in Minneapolis before posting that tweet.

According to the arena's website, tons of tickets are still available for Rihanna's June 16th concert with featured guest, Cee Lo Green. Now Rihanna is looking pretty dumb... again.

And, oh, by the way, a loyal reader just sent this...

The news came as a shock to friends of Corey McGriff, better known as DJ Megatron. The popular BET 106 & Park DJ was found lying face up in the street in the early morning hours of Sunday near his Staten Island brownstone.

According to police, McGriff was on his cell phone with a male friend when he was accosted by 3 unknown males who shot him in the chest and fled the scene on foot. The unidentified friend told police that McGriff said he was on his way to buy weed when the phone went dead. The friend said he didn't hear a gunshot.

Police confirmed the 32-year-old DJ had been walking when he was shot once in the chest, but a motive has not yet been established. McGriff's cell phone was found near his body.

According to the NY Post, McGriff had $1 in his jeans pocket when he was found dead in the street. His bills had apparently been paid by a "female gal pal."

The shooting may have been witnessed by McGriff's 4-year-old son, who, wide awake at 2 a.m., stood in the doorway of McGriff's brownstone and watched his father cross the street as the 3 males approached him. The boy had been left home alone.

Twitter has a new star joining its ranks. The Bronx Zoo's missing cobra joined Twitter yesterday, and he already has over 35,000 followers. Worried zookeepers don't know how the wily cobra slipped out of its enclosure in the reptile house on Friday, but the poisonous snake doesn't plan on being recaptured any time soon.

In addition to keeping the zookeepers off his trail, the cobra humorously narrates his adventures while on the loose in the Bronx.

After the Bergdorf Goodman store invited the @BronxZoosCobra to visit, it tweeted, "If I recognize a single belt..."

For its part, the zoo is working overtime to find the snake and restore confidence in an alarmed public. In a statement released yesterday, zoo director James J. Breheny noted, “We understand the interest in this story and that everyone wants us to find the missing snake. As this may take days or even weeks, daily updates should not be expected.”

R&B Diva Keyshia Cole was spotted yesterday arriving at the same Beverly Hills medical building that celebs often frequent. The building houses doctors offices and a pharmacy. Celebs photographed leaving the medical center in the past include the late Michael Jackson, Halle Berry, Whitney Houston, Ciara, Diddy and Usher, among others.

Keyshia had mentioned in the past that she was thinking about getting her ample breasts reduced to lessen the load on her lower back. The part time Johns Creek, GA resident is gearing up for a special live performance on April 30 at the New York EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women. Keyshia has a son with NBA star Daniel "Booby" Gibson.

Just days after shocking photos of a stricken and pale Beyoncé surfaced online, comes word that she has fired her dad, Matthew Knowles, as her manager.

Most of us thought she fired him already. But, according to Bey's longtime publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, the termination is for real this time.

The news comes a year after scandalous reports of Matthew's infidelity, money laundering and drug abuse hit the blogs. In addition to Beyoncé, her sister Solange and their half-sister, Kelly Rowland, Knowles is also the daddy of a 1-year-old boy by actress Alexsandra Wright ("Scrubs").

Matthew released a prepared statement last night complete with shameless self-promotion, which I have deleted since no one cares:

The decision for Beyoncé and Music World Entertainment to part was mutual. We did great things together, and I know that she will continue to conquer new territories in music and entertainment.

In Music World's repositioning it will not continue its label/management role with Columbia/Sony artist Tiffany Evans.

Business is business and family is family. I love my daughter and am very proud of who she is and all that she has achieved. I look forward to her continued great success.

Maybe now Beyoncé can get her stalled career back on track?

Pregnant songstress Mariah Carey is bored waiting for her twins to be delivered so she can exploit them to the world. So she painted a butterfly on her swollen tummy and tweeted the pic to her 4 million followers. That was after she tweeted about her false contractions and dramatically rushed herself to the hospital only to be sent back home yesterday.

I fear for these babies when they are finally born.

At one time Beyonce Knowles was the reigning queen of Pop -- until she stumbled and was forced to give up her crown to Rihanna. Apparently she has never fully recovered from that public humiliation. Slowly, the paparazzi who once famously stalked Bey, stopped showing up at her appearances. Now I'm told that Bey's people frequently call the wire services with Bey's schedule, but to no avail. The paparazzi just aren't interested in her any more. These pictures surfaced online over the weekend. They show a pale Beyonce with no makeup walking to her waiting limo with her loyal bodyguard, Julius. These new pictures have ignited old rumors that Beyonce is ill. I hope she's okay.

Socialite Paris Hilton, 30, posed with a black baby at the Starlight Children's Foundation 2011 "A Stellar Night" Gala in Century City, CA over the weekend. Hilton is still reeling from accusations of racism after shocking quotes attributed to her from an upcoming book surfaced online last week.

According to the LA Times, a book entitled "Everyone Loves You When You're Dead: Journeys Into Fame and Madness" by Neil Strauss contains an encounter he had with the party loving heiress in 1999. Supposedly, Hilton met a biracial guy at another party the previous evening.

Hilton pointed the guy out to Strauss and said, "We were making out, but then we went somewhere where it was bright and I saw that he was black and made an excuse and left. I can't stand black guys. I would never touch one. It's gross." When Strauss asked Hilton, "How black does a guy have to be?" she allegedly responded, "One percent is enough for me."

Remember the days when pop singer Rihanna was wholesome and classy and would never strip for the cover of a national magazine just to sell records? Well, apparently those days are over.

Rihanna, 23, poses practically naked on the cover of this week's Rolling Stone magazine, which hits newsstands on Wednesday (Mar 30). The artsy photos were shot by famed photog Mark Seliger exclusively for RS.

Rihanna's management is still scrambling to dispute news stories that suggests Rihanna's tour is not selling well in the U.S. Why is it so hard to believe that she's not selling tickets here? It's no secret that here in the US Rihanna is known more for her looks than she is for her singing ability.

She may be hawt overseas, but here in the U.S., she simply doesn't pack huge arenas -- even if she poses half naked on magazine covers.

Today is Lil Wayne Day over at Interview magazine blog. For some reason, the music giant decided to honor the troubled rapper by making every story on their front page about him.

In one post, my favorite rapper, Drake, reminisces on the day he met his idol -- and future boss -- Weezy. Drake's demo tape somehow made its way into Lil Wayne's personal iPod, and the rest, as they say, is history.

"The music was played to him by someone I knew at the time who was around him. I assume it was played on the tour bus, you know, but I never really got the exact story. Two songs into it, he stopped the CD and asked the person to get me on the phone. I showed up to Houston and I was staying at the Hotel Derek, I remember. They brought me to my room and I was just in disbelief, like, "What am I doing here?" You know? For me it was surreal.

I got a knock on the door and it was E.I., who later went on to become one of my closest friends. He was just like, you know, "Wayne wants to see you on the bus. And I'm his, I'm his road manager." So he brought me on the bus, and Wayne was getting like the most painful tattoo in the world. He was getting these huge wings on each side of his body. I'm a very observant person, you know, and when I haven't met somebody, and I get the chance to actually see them in person, I try not to talk too much. I speak when spoken to. I'm just staring around taking in little things, you know... ashtrays and cups, what that person's eating, what that person's hobbies are, if I can tell by looking—I really study an individual by their surroundings.

Then he proceeded to play me Tha Carter III—of course I was blown away at the time, 'cause nobody had heard it yet. I heard it front to back and it was, it was amazing. I just remember like little anecdotes, like somebody came on the bus like, "Yo, Kobe Bryant wants an iPod so he can play it tonight." It was just like crazy, crazy things that [went] on in Wayne's life every day. Everybody's a Lil' Wayne fan.

Troubled singer Chris Brown tweeted this pic of his new 'do after cutting the blonde out of his hair this past weekend. The blonde dye was growing out anyway, but I'm sure Brown got tired of all the teh Ghey jokes.

But that's not the big news that has CB Stans excited: rumor has it that Brown and his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, will have a sit down chat with Robin Roberts to make up for his chair throwing tantrum the other day inside his 'Good Morning America' dressing room.

Of course, like all dumb rumors, this one will soon fade into oblivion.

We all know that Rihanna is too selfish to help CB promote his new album by granting a joint interview on ABC. And Brown is too narcissistic to share the stage with Rihanna -- especially since any interview agreement would involve him apologizing in some form to Rihanna. And that's never going to happen.

Normally I don't post this sort of smut on my family oriented blog, but this post ties in with my previous post about Lil Wayne's manager, Cortez Bryant, getting himself busted in DeKalb County, Georgia on DUI and possession charges this weekend.

While Bryant, 30, was cooling his heels for 2 days in the DeKalb County lockup, Lil Wayne's "I Am Still Music" tour, featuring Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross (who also got himself arrested for weed possession this weekend) continued on at the Nassau Coliseum in New Jersey last night.

A fan caught this footage of Nicki giving her boss, Lil Wayne, a freebie onstage.

"Celebrity Apprentice" and "Real Housewife of Atlanta" star Nene Leakes tried out her new iPad 2 while sitting at poolside in Miami, Florida yesterday. She was wearing a loud neon green string bikini that got everyone's attention.

Remember when Kanye West's former beard Amber Rose was sexy and hawt? Now she looks like Kanye's sloppy seconds. She at least had a sense of style when she was with Kanye. That's because she could afford the best stylists, including Kanye himself. Now she walks into stores such as Bebe and she's styled on the spot by whoever is working the cash register. I'm not making that up. Amber recently took to her Twitter page to dismiss rumors that she's slept with half of the music industry. "I have never slept with Fabolous, Drake or Chris Brown," she duly noted. Interestingly enough, Amber didn't mention any of the female celebrities that she's been with.

Despite the rumors of infidelity, Wendy Williams and her husband Kevin seemed happy as they arrived at the Helmsley Park Lane hotel to celebrate Aretha Franklin's 69th birthday in New York City last night (Mar 26).

Narcissist Wyclef Jean hosted a party and live performance at Haze Nightclub located inside Aria Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV last night. Wyclef posed with his lovely wife Marie Claudinette. He wore a replica of the Haitian flag on his right wrist where he claims he suffered a gunshot wound.

Former "America's Top Model" contestant Eva Marcille was spotted at The Cotton Club in Los Angeles for R&B Live. According to Allen over at Upscale Hype fashion blog, she was wearing Brian Lichtenberg Black Angular Patchwork Sliver Glitter leggings ($218), which are a combination of glitter, sheer hosiery and fishnet pieces. She was also rocking pair of Gucci “Kills” Peep Toe Platform Booties ($990). Notice the white couple in the background? That is a rare sight in Atlanta's urban nightclubs. For a Metropolis with a population of 6 million that passes itself off as a "City of courageous firsts" -- Atlanta's nightclubs are still segregated. Whites and blacks do not party together in Atlanta where racist attitudes remain stuck in the 50's.


Rev. Run's daughter Angela Simmons attended the Knicks game in New York City on Friday (Mar 25). Angela, who made millions off of her Pastry shoe line, wore a modern day version of the 1920s fringe flapper dress. She accessorized the dress with a black cropped leather jacket, Christian Louboutin pumps and a Chanel tote.

"Celebrity Apprentice" cast member Star Jones and Kim Kardashian's mom, Kris Jenner, both have the same gaudy taste in faux Chinchilla fur. Miss Jones was spotted leaving the Helmsley Park Lane hotel after celebrating Aretha Franklin's 69th birthday in New York City on Saturday (Mar 26).

Miami Heat stars Dwyane Wade (2nd from L with sons Zion and Zaire) and LeBron James, right, pose for photos with Kei Nishhikori, left, of Japan and Rafael Nadal of Spain during the 2011 Sony Ericsson Open at Crandon Park Tennis Center in Key Biscayne, Florida yesterday.

Wade was recently awarded full custody of his sons, Zion and Zaire, both of whom arrived in Florida 2 weeks ago to live with their dad full time. Men like D Wade and LeBron serve as excellent role models for the young brothas in our community who are leaving the street corners in droves to raise their children. All I see are young black fathers with their kids at South DeKalb Mall and Greenbrier Mall on the weekends. It's a beautiful thing!

Remember when Solange Knowles promoted her new line of Hip Hop toys called Baby Jamz, which she said were inspired by her then 4-year-old son, Juelz?

Well, now she's releasing a t-shirt line also inspired by the budding 6-year-old tycoon. Solange says that when Juelz heard about the earthquake in Japan, he was so moved that he was inspired to create a line of t-shirts to raise money for relief efforts...
