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:

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.”

Thanks to loyal reader Yoanna for the tip!
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?
