Lil Wayne is arguably the #1 rapper in the country right now. His platinum touch on records combined with his talent-laden Young Money artist roster, which includes rappers Nicki Minaj and Drake, the rap mogul can do no wrong – even when he releases the most God-awful rap ballad in the history of Hip Hop.
Talking about the song, he told MTV in a recent interview, “I can tell you that I’ve never had a single like it, and it’s an amazing song. It’s an amazing song.” He added, “When I listen to it I get goose bumps. And I feel like the song is gonna take me somewhere that I’ve never been musically.”
The song is recorded for Weezy’s new studio installment “Tha Carter IV” which is coming out in the U.S. on June 21. A week before the album release, he will kick off the second leg of his I Am Still Tour at Comcast Theater in Hartford, CT with Rick Ross, Keri Hilson and Far East Movement. Source
Remember yesterday I told you how singer Chris Brown
rearranged his trailer/dressing room got a little upset during the Spring Fest concert in Miami? My inside source stressed that Brown was well within his rights to be angry about the disorganized Memorial Day concert at Bicentennial Park on Saturday.
Brown, I’m told, arrived on time for his scheduled 7 p.m. performance, but the concert organizers kept delaying his start time, which made Brown “flip a gasket”, and, well, you know what happened then.
Singer Keri Hilson was one of the artists whose set was shortened to accommodate Brown. The “No Boys Allowed” singer performed only 3 songs. Here’s what she had to say on Twitter after her short set:
Not too thrilled abt my time being cut on stage. But I’m sure the other artists weren’t either. So I hope u still enjoyed the [short] show!!
Curvy R&B singer Ciara has an obsession with nudity and she’s not ashamed to admit that when it comes to dressing herself: less is always more. The sexy siren tells US Weekly that the moments when she feels most comfortable is when she’s walking around in the nude.
“I feel the sexiest when I’m by myself, walking around nude,” she told Us Magazine. “I have this new obsession with nudity, it’s really weird. It may sound weird, but I just really love embracing the body.”
The 25-year-old keeps her body in shape by working out fives times a week with celebrity trainer Gunner Peterson, and eating what she calls “clean” foods. Despite her slender physique, the singer explained that her goal is to maintain a healthy body type, versus being skinny. “I can lose weight easily and I don’t like to do that,” she revealed. “I’m not trying to lose and get small. I just want to keep shape and I just want to focus on abs and glutes. I would never advise somebody to be so strict to where you don’t enjoy yourself.”
With all the death and mayhem that occurred over the Memorial Day weekend, at least one celebrity enjoyed her holiday weekend in the arms of TWO men. Rowland has been dating man #1 for at least a year now. We have no clue who man #2 is.
From Splash News:
The singer and new ‘X-Factor’ judge, Kelly Rowland, was spotted at the beach in Miami Beach, FL, in the afternoon with friends. Kelly wore a purple bikini, silver sunglasses and a straw hat on her day at the beach. She spent most of the time taking a nap. Before leaving, Kelly put on a tunic and was seen affectionately kissing a mystery male.

Unable to come to terms with her pastor’s secret lifestyle, Bernice King has left her position at New Birth Missionary Church, according to the AJC.
King, 48, the youngest and only surviving daughter of the late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, left her position as an elder on Sunday just days after Bishop Eddie Long and the church settled lawsuits brought by 4 men who say he coerced them with gifts, clothing and trips in exchange for sex.
King was an impassioned opponent of gay rights and gay marriage in particular. In 2004, King and Long walked side by side during a march against gay marriage that ended at the Martin Luther King grave site. It is well known in the lesbian community that King is not empathetic toward gays and lesbians. Especially since it has long been rumored that Bernice, who never married, is an undercover lesbian herself.
Both Long, 58, and Elder King made the fight against gay marriage their personal crusades. Conflicted church members looking for guidance from Long and King were often instructed to seek Jesus to rid themselves of their “sick” homosexual urgings. Meanwhile, Long and King battled their inner demons in seclusion, only to emerge bitter and broken people.
In a report written by the Southern Poverty Law Center, Long was called “one of the most virulently homophobic black leaders in the religiously based anti-gay movement.” In one sermon, he says to gays and lesbians, “God says you deserve death!”
Long’s New Birth Missionary Baptist megachurch once had a membership of 25,000. But at the 8 a.m. service on the Sunday following news of the settlement, the congregation numbered in the hundreds.
Yesterday I told you that I would spill the tea about what happened in Miami at the annual Spring Fest concert at Bicentenniel Park, when singer Chris Brown threw a fit in his RV trailer.
According to my inside source, the Spring Fest concert, which normally features 15 or more established acts, was unusually disorganized this year.
My source said the line up changed several times during the evening after the gates opened at 5 p.m. The featured artists included Brown, Marsha Ambrosius, Rick Ross, Trey Songz, Keri Hilson, Lloyd, Miguel, Jeremih, Travis Porter, Big Sean, and others.
In defense of Brown, my source said he arrived on time for his set which was supposed to begin around 7 p.m. But the source said that Brown “flipped a gasket” after cooling his heels in his trailer for 3 hours while waiting to go on. “The show was behind and he got there on time. Then he was like, ‘what the f*ck is going on?'” said my source.
Even Miguel’s mic stand was glowing neon rainbow colors at the Spring Fest concert in Miami.
