Beyonce, 30, and her inflatable baby bump device attended the premiere of her ‘Beyonce Live at The Roseland’ DVD screening at the Paris Theater in NYC on Sunday, Nov 20. While most of the fawning public has accepted that Beyonce is pregnant, it’s hard to ignore the disparities in the above photos, which were taken just days apart. My attorney, Precious Anderson-Scott of the Anderson Firm, is due to deliver her baby in February — just like Beyonce. But unlike Beyonce, Precious’ baby bump is consistent in size and shape, whether she’s sitting or standing.

Anyway, the entire concert is now available on VEVO. But if you want your own keepsake copy, the 2-disc DVD of Live at Roseland: The Elements of 4, will be in stores on Nov. 29.

Watch Beyonce perform “End Of Time” and “I Was Here” from her Live at Roseland concert after the break.

Love was in the air last night 2011 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theater in LA. Lovebird couples such as singer John Legend and girlfriend Christine Teigen, (above), and Mary J Blige and her hubby/manager Kendu Isaacs (below) couldn’t keep their hands or lips off each other.

After performing “Mr. Wrong”, Mary paid tribute to rapper Heavy D, who passed away on November 8, of unknown causes.

“Rest in peace to my dear friend, my loved one, my brother, the loveable and great Heavy D,” Mary said. “I miss you so much, brother. God bless.”

Cartoon rapper Nicki Minaj walked away with two trophies during last night’s 2011 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theater in LA. Nicki pulled a stunning upset over Jay Z and Kanye West by winning Best Rap/Hip-Hop Album for Pink Friday, easily defeating the much-hyped album, Watch The Throne.

The 29-year-old rapper, wearing a shiny speaker suit, performed her hits “Turn Me On” and “Super Bass” backed up by DJ David Guetta.

The night’s other big winners included Taylor Swift (Artist of the Year); Beyoncé (Soul/R&B Female Artist), Bruno Mars (Pop/Rock Male Artist), Rihanna (Soul/R&B Album) and Jennifer Lopez (Latin Music Artist). Unfortunately, Rihanna’s abusive ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, didn’t win a thing as he had hoped.

Brown, who has over 5 million followers on the social networking site Twitter.com, deleted his entire timeline after a follower questioned him about Rihanna last Thursday.

The troubled singer tweeted “Don’t say s*** to anybody and everyone feels its cool to attack me. GROWN ADULTS!!!! That s*** happened three years ago.” He followed that up with other angry tweets, including a reference to last night’s American Music Awards, where the delusional singer had hoped to finally earn some respect.

“I wake up thinking of living my life….. YOU wake up thinking of me! NOW I REALLY CAN’T WAIT FOR THE AMA’s! U dont have to respect me now… but u will.”

Troubled singer Chris Brown performed last night, but he lost the Soul/R&B Album trophy to his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown had hoped that the AMAs would redeem his fractured image and gain him the respect that he thinks he deserves. But that will never happen. Sales of Brown’s album F.A.M.E. has stalled at around 700,000 copies sold, and it doesn’t appear to be even close to going platinum. All of this leaves Brown very frustrated and in need of mood altering medications. The 22-year-old went on another one of his patented rampage on Twitter.com last Thursday that ended when he deleted his entire timeline and appears to have left Twitter for good.

If you thought U.S. President Barack Obama was the most hated Democrat in the country, think again. The first lady Michelle Obama received a rude reception in Florida when she was booed at the final NASCAR race of the season at the Homestead-Miami Speedway yesterday.

Mrs. Obama shared the honor of calling the start of the race with Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden; and Sgt. Andrew Barry and his beautiful family on behalf of ‘Joining Forces’ – a group that helps military families. But the race car fans started booing before Mrs. Obama could even utter the traditional words, “Gentlemen, start your engines!”


The last post I wrote on Body Image Disturbance (BID) profiled a 23-year-old woman who died of complications related to her sixth breast augmentation surgery.

Despite the increased media focus on botched butt enhancement injections, many women continue to put their lives at risk.

Miami Gardens police have arrested a man (pictured above) who posed as a fake doctor to conduct unauthorized plastic surgery procedures on a woman who required hospitalization afterwards.

Cops say 30-year-old Oneal Ron Harris injected a substance consisting of cement, “fix-a-flat,” mineral oil, and “super glue,” into his victim as a butt enhancement and then sealed the incision with “super glue.”

The injections resulted in what police called a “serious medical condition,” requiring the victim to be hospitalized.
Miami Gardens Police say Morris also performed a similar procedure on himself. Source

Body Image Disturbance (BID), or Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a mental illness that is on the rise in the black community. Celebrities such as Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian help to perpetuate the myth that bizarrely altering a woman’s body parts will bring them riches and fame.

Rather than improve a woman’s low perception of herself, the illegal butt injections often results in depression, serious illness or death.

According to Star magazine, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s alleged open relationship may have doomed their marriage.

When Ashton and Demi first met 8 years ago, the fires of passion (fueled by Dopamine) burned inside them. Often when two people are sexually attracted to each other, they confuse that sexual attraction with love. For most people, the reality usually sets in between 6 months to 2 years when the Dopamine stops leaking.

According to Star magazine’s sources, Ashton and Demi agreed to an open relationship in hopes of keeping the fires burning. There are also reports that Demi was bisexual.

“Everyone in Hollywood knows about their arrangement, but they’ve managed to keep it a secret from the general public,” a source told the magazine. “Demi is attracted to women just as much as men … She was cool with Ashton having flirtatious relationships too. Somehow they made it work all these years. Both of them were respectful of each other. It was a lot of fun for them.”

The writing was on the wall when two women came forward with stories of passionate sex and wild nights spent with Ashton. At first, Demi and Ashton denied the rumors on their Twitter pages.

But yesterday Moore announced that her marriage to Ashton was finally over.

According to celebrity blogger Tami of Talkingwithtami.com, Lady Gaga’s ex-choreographer, Laurieann Gibson, is dating local promoter Juan Farmer, cousin of has-been music producer, and compulsive womanizer, Dallas Austin. Who hasn’t Dallas Austin dated? I bet he’s on a first name basis with the staff at the local STD clinic. Anyway, according to Tami, Laurieann and Farmer arrived together and she spotted them holding hands at one point. But when she crept closer and asked to take their picture, Farmer acted all shy.

I agree with Tami, “If a guys looks uncomfortable/awkward being seen out in public with you ladies, run like hell! #fail”

The original post was edited to reflect the fact that Laurieann is dating Juan Farmer, not Dallas Austin. Juan hit us up just now and said, “Why do I have to be Dallas Austin?”

Here are more pics from last night’s 2011 Soul Train Awards held at the fabulous Fox Theater in Atlanta. These pics are courtesy of celebrity blogger Tami of Talkingwithtami.com who took better pics than the so-called professional photographers.

How embarrassing that singer Miguel looked prettier than most of the females on the red carpet?
