Young Money Records owner Lil Wayne put the smack down on his employee, Drake, during a cover interview for VIBE magazine’s October/November issue, due out in October.
When VIBE asked the platinum rapper if he felt intimidated by Drake’s meteoric success, Weezy’ revealed his own insecurity:
VIBE: You mentioned how humbled you were at the success of “She Will.” Drake, who wrote and performs the song’s chorus, has now become a platinum star in his own right. Do you look at the guy and say, “Wow, I helped create a monster, I have to stay on my toes”?
LIL WAYNE: I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not [just] a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.
Celebrity twin Tia Mowry-Hardrict may have outed her bestie, Queen Latifah, on the Wendy Williams Show. ‘The Game’ star and her twin sister, Tamera Mowry-Housley, 33, appeared on The Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday to promote their reality show. We love Wendy because she’s an expert at tricking her guests into saying what we really want to hear.
Click the image above (or click here) to watch as Tia gets tongue tied when Wendy asks her if personal trainer Jeanette Jenkins is Queen Latifah’s “old friend.”
Watch as Tia laughs nervously and Tamera glares at Wendy like she wants to slap her!
The look on Tia’s face says it all! We only wish Wendy would have followed up with, “I didn’t know you stutter, Tia.”
A new song has leaked from R&B Diva Monica’s upcoming album, New Life, titled “Do It All Again”. The track is produced by Norwegian producers Stargate. According to Toya, the producers sampled the hell out of their Beyonce “Irreplaceable” track.
In the song, Mo regrets not going that extra mile to save a past relationship. New Life hits stores on November 29.
When R&B crooner/actor Tyrese took to Twitter.com, tweeting his 2 million followers about being kicked out of a radio station, we knew he was lying. The male attention whore complained that Delaware’s WJKS-FM kicked him off the air earlier this week for objecting to the location of a liquor store across the street from a school.
The station’s general manager, Tony Q, spoke up about the incident today, and, of course, his account differs greatly from Tyrese’s story.
In a long letter posted on the WJKS-FM website, Mr. Q stated that the singer was shown the door for being rude to the DJ and for promoting a concert on the air without prior authorization.
You came on lecturing our listeners, you then asked the DJ if we had any listeners. What kind of question was that if we had any listeners. Then you went right into promoting your big night at the University of Delaware. You received the full air time you deserved. We did not cut off your mike, we did not let the audiences know that the interview was over but you did. You couldn’t wait to tweet your words all over and let people believe that you were kicked off because you were talking about liquor store, that was not the reason. You got away with taking advantage of the only remaining independent station in the North East.
According to Mr. Q, Tyrese disrespected Delawareans on the air and, after the interview, he was kicked out of a Doubletree Hotel for causing a commotion. The station has retaliated by removing Tyrese’s current single, “Stay”, from rotation, as well as removing the singer’s entire music catalogue from the air.

Michael Jackson’s personal assistant took the witness stand on the second day of Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial in Los Angeles.
Michael Amir Williams testified that Jackson’s former doctor called him frantically on the morning of June 25, 2009 begging him to send help for Jackson, who lay dying in the bedroom of a rented Holmby Hill mansion.
“He said, ‘Get here right away, Mr. Jackson had a bad reaction. Get somebody up here immediately,”’ Williams said.
Williams testified that he called Jackson’s bodyguard, Alberto Alvarez, who was outside, and told him to get up to the 2nd floor bedroom to check on Jackson.
Williams said Jackson had previously given strict orders that only Jackson and the children were allowed on the 2nd floor of the mansion.
“I told [Alvarez], ‘I don’t know what’s going on, but you have to go inside the house,'” said Williams. “I remember him walking, and I said, ‘Are you there, yet.’ He said, ‘No.’ I said, ‘Well run, hurry.‘”
Actress Lindsay Lohan was seen kissing new boyfriend Philipp Plein in Milan, Italy early this morning. INFPhoto.com just posted exclusive first pictures of their long, passionate kiss outside an Italian restaurant. Exclusive photo: INF PHOTO
The couple enjoyed a romantic dinner with friends at an Italian restaruant before roaring off into the night in a 2-seater sports car. Life is getting better for Lindsay. Maybe what she needs in her life is a real man instead of dating confused chicks who think they’re men.
Recent pictures of Demi Moore show the actress looking gaunt, frail and depressed. Now we know why.
According to the New York Post, Moore and her husband, Ashton Kutcher, have lived apart for months. Word is, the former Hollywood power couple are gearing up for a nasty $290 million divorce.
A source told Star magazine that the couple were “just putting on a show until they officially split.” The ‘Ghost’ star was still wearing her wedding ring when she was spotted yesterday in New York.
The couple, who have been married for nearly six years, have been living apart after Kutcher’s penchant for cheating, Star magazine reported today.
“It was definitely a long time coming, but they’re finally done for good,” an insider told the magazine. Moore, 48, and Kutcher, 33, have been living on the opposite coasts for months.
An insider revealed that Kutcher’s cheating was what ended the marriage, saying “Demi’s finally read to move on.”
Star reported that Kutcher’s relationship with a sexy blond coed was the final straw and that the marriage had weathered another case of infidelity when the actor bedded Brittney Jones just before the couple’s fifth wedding anniversary.
Last year, Star magazine reported that Kutcher and Jones had sex on the actor’s couch after meeting at a bowling alley.
With the marriage essentially over, the couple will spend plenty of time arguing over their $300 million in assets, the magazine reported.
Diana Ross’s middle daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross, 38, covers the October 10th issue of JET magazine.
Having made her mark on the hit show “Girlfriends” Tracee Ellis Ross is making her television comeback. Her new show, “Reed Between The Lines,” which premieres October 11 on BET, features Ross as a happily married therapist and mother of three. The new gig is just one of the many exciting changes happen in Ross’ life. JET has all the details on her workout regime, her rumored beau (Def Jam’s Bu Thiam), and her famous hair. “You gotta respect the curls … I work for them,” says Ross.
Her banging body might become a new obsession for her many admirers, but for now, when you type her name into Google, the top search is for “Tracee Ellis Ross hair.” “I have so much hair it’s extraordinary,” she says, admitting no one is more obsessed than she is. “You could take half the hair on my head and cover another person’s head.” She grew out her relaxer in high school and has tested so many styles, serums and conditioners that she might put out a book and a line of hair products one day. Not a fan of bone straight hair— “I’m Diana Ross’ child… big hair is what I come from”— she has learned one important lesson in natural hair manage ment: “You gotta respect the curls,” she says. “I work for them. I can’t tell them what to do.”
Find out what else she’s dishing on in the new issue on newsstands Oct. 10th!

This photo of NBA star Carmelo Anthony, his wife, La La Anthony, and their son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, 4, out together is so rare that it deserves its own post. The career couple were able to fit each other into their busy schedules to eat together at Serendipity Restaurant on the Upper East Side in NYC yesterday. Hopefully this outing wasn’t for the benefit of television cameras.
Little Kiyan seemed so happy to have his parents together. He’s so adorable.
