Remember last weekend when the paparazzi caught troubled rapper Kanye West with his pants down around his thighs as he emerged from a chauffeured limo with bestie, Kim Kardashian? Well, Kim has an explanation for that.

From E! Online:

"He was getting out of the car and his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick and his belt was really heavy," says Kim, Kanye's frequent companion as of late, in an exclusive interview with E! News at E!'s upfronts presentation.

"It's called a wardrobe malfunction," sister Kourtney explains to her sibling.

"It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional," Kim says. "It was not scandalous."

Yeah, right, Kim. Are you sure it has nothing to do with the rumors that the show's producers predict your fake relationship with Kanye is not going to be enough to save the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians?

Last week People magazine named struggling singer Beyonce the most beautiful woman in the world, and now the person who is most criticized for stealing other writers' music wins a journalism award. Wtf?

Something called the 'New York Association of Black Journalists' recognized Beyonce for an article she probably didn't even write. That organization's credibility is now shot. All true journalists who have ever been recognized by this organization should return their awards in protest of this mockery!

From Page Six:

The superstar’s Essence magazine cover article, “Eat, Play Love,” won her first place in the Arts & Entertainment category of the New York Association of Black Journalists awards.

Beyoncé wrote about taking time away from the studio to enjoy the day-to-day pleasures of life.

“Simple things like play with my nephew, pick him up from school, visit museums, go to concerts, see some Broadway shows . . . and spend time with my husband,” she wrote.

According to my spy down at the Fulton County courthouse, there were major developments on Day 2 of the custody hearing between Usher Raymond and his ex-wife Tameka Foster. Usher is battling Tameka for custody of their sons, Usher Raymond V, 5, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 3.

Usher believes Tameka is an unfit mother and he is asking for full custody of his sons. Usher and Tameka currently share joint custody of the boys. Yesterday, the judge ordered both Usher and Tameka to hash out an agreement behind closed doors. But the two parties could not come to an agreement that suited them.

According to my spy, a court appointed Psychologist was called to give testimony about whether Tameka Raymond was mentally stable to keep custody of her two son's, however Usher's attorney filed a motion to exclude media during the testimony of the doctor, citing details of a sensitive nature that would not be in the best interest of the children if the details were made public.

We can only speculate as to what that means. Obviously, Usher is worried about Tameka spilling the beans about something personal pertaining to Usher.

Earlier today, a ridiculous rumor raced across the social networking websites shortly after Rihanna tweeted pics of herself making it rain on dancers at a NY strip club.

People began speculating that Rihanna and someone named Meek Mill were "smashing" because they were at the same club on the same night. A quick Google search turned up information that Meek Mill is some sort of rapper based out of NY.

Because I'm a blogger, I feel it is my job to clear up certain bogus rumors so my readers won't get distracted and start believing everything they read.

To get the scoop on whether Rihanna even knew this dude, I reached out to my well-placed source within her camp earlier today. But before I could even get the words out of my mouth, my source started laughing hysterically.

So there you have it. Draw your own conclusions.

As you know, once a female narcissist latches onto to her next victim she moves quickly to get him to put that ring on her finger. 2 weeks is about the average length of time she will wait for him to "prove his love" and pop the question.

From US Weekly:

Just one month after going public with their romance, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are "very serious," a source tells the new Us Weekly -- as in, ready to pick out rings.

Although the reality star, 31, has yet to finalize her divorce from NBA star Kris Humphries, she and the rapper, 34, "are talking marriage," says the source. (Over the weekend, Kardashian jetted back from Washington, DC, where she was a guest at the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday, to be by West's side for a Sunday performance of Broadway's Wicked.)

Gossip blog TMZ.com reports that former NFL star Junior Seau is dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. According to TMZ, police responded to reports of a shooting involving the former linebacker at his Oceanside, CA home this morning.

"NFL legend Junior Seau was found dead in his home in Oceanside, CA ... and a law enforcement source at the scene tells us cops believe he shot himself," TMZ writes.

Seau joins a long list of former NFL stars who have taken their own lives after the fame and bright lights fade. He leaves behind 3 kids and an ex-wife.

We spoke with an investigator in the coroner's office .. who told us they got a call to respond to the scene ... though the details surrounding the situation are still unclear.

Cops are currently at a residence where 43-year-old Junior is believed to be staying.

In October 2010, Seau denied rumors that he was trying to commit suicide after driving his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, CA.

Seau told officers on the scene that he fell asleep at the wheel of his Cadillac Escalade when it careened off the cliff.

Yesterday, Khloe Kardashian denied rumors that she and hubby Lamar Odom pulled the plug on their reality show, Khloe & Lamar.

But today, the rumor was confirmed by People magazine. Khloe, who appears on the cover of the current issue, told People why she and her hubby were stepping back from the limelight.

If you recall, I told you that a little west coast birdie dropped the scoop that Lamar put his Dallas Mavericks teammates on the back burner to reshoot scenes for Khloe's reality show. At the time Lamar claimed his father was gravely ill and he had to take a leave of absence to tend to him.

But the truth was soon revealed. Lamar's love for Khloe forced him to make the difficult choice between his team and the show. And that didn't sit well with team management.

Khloe has all but confirmed those rumors as well.

Fire investigators continue to sift through the charred rubble this morning to determine if arson sparked a 4-alarm blaze at the renowned Tyler Perry Studios in southwest Atlanta Tuesday night.

"The fire's out, but the cause remains under investigation," Capt. Jolyon Bundrige with the Atlanta Fire Department told the AJC just before 11 p.m. Tuesday.

As many as a dozen fire trucks lined Continental Colony Parkway around 9 p.m. as 100 firefighters battled the blaze that caused one building to collapse inside the massive complex.

No one was injured and the structure was empty at the time of the fire.

A nearby highrise was evacuated as a safety precaution.

Perry arrived on the scene after the fire was extinguished Tuesday night and spoke with Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran, according to the AJC.

Beyonce's sister Solange's days as a singer are far behind her. The celebrity DJ is in high demand at A-list events. She is so popular as a DJ that her schedule is booked through 2012. Solonge was Monday night’s DJ at Gucci and GQ‘s private cocktail party at Gucci's NYC flagship boutique. She wore "a one-of-a-kind black and beige textured zebra-printed jacket over a white georgette satin drapped body suit, leather mini skirt, and t-strap" according to JustJared. Solange was spotted chatting up James Franco at the party.

The 25-year-old sometime model accessorized her outfit with a pair of Gucci 'Ophelie' t-strap high heel sandals featuring black suede and gold color leather trim, antique gold metal chain detail, ankle strap with buckle closure and a leather sole on a 4.5 inch heel. The dainty sandals retail for $1,500.

Why do men punch walls out of frustration? I posed this question to my male followers on Twitter.com last night after news broke that the NY Knicks star was treated in the lockeroom by paramedics for punching something.

It turned out that Stoudemire required 15 stitches after punching a fire extinguisher case in the hall outside the Knicks' locker room.

Stoudemire was clearly frustrated after his team dropped a 2nd straight game to the blazing Miami Heat in the first round of the Eastern conference playoffs last night in Miami. Stoudemire will probably be out for the first round -- and maybe the rest of the playoffs.

There is a trend among certain celebrities who have decided to go without makeup after years of hiding under layers of foundation.

Troubled singer Rihanna, 24, has been seen in recent days wearing no makeup in public. The results have been mixed so far. But Rihanna herself concedes that her nude face looks washed out and anemic under certain lighting conditions. Earlier today the Bajan beauty tweeted:

Meanwhile, Rihanna was spotted on the streets of New York today arguing with a fan who wanted her to autograph a court document. RiRi happily autographed a poster of herself, but she told the guy she wasn't signing the document. I wonder what it said?

Her t-shirt reads: "If I were riding a horse I'd wear flanel but I'm going to the disco so I wear Channel." The words "flannel" and "Chanel" are intentionally misspelled.

Beyonce's sister, Solange Knowles, found out the hard way that she has to transition out of her makeup very slowly. Her fans on Twitter.com, and on this blog, went IN on Solange when she dared to attend a recent event with a naked face.

At least 17,500+ VH1 viewers are sick and tired of VH1's scripted violence against black women. The show, Basketball Wives, which pretends to follow the troubles and tribulations of a group of "friends," is actually a scripted TV series with non-actor cast members who are encouraged to stage fake fights to boost TV ratings.

One woman, Alexis M., is tired of the ongoing violence, and the show's perception that black women are crazy and angry.

Alexis created an online petition to get Evelyn and Chad's spin-off show canceled before it has even aired.

Not satisfied with just presenting signatures to VH1 (who is probably enjoying the free pub), Alexis M. is going after the show's advertisers, too. Alexis said one of the show's sponsors, Burger King, didn't even know what "Basketball Wives" was.

Have you ever attempted to swallow food and it feels like it's stuck in your throat (or somewhere in your upper chest)? Panic slowly begins to rise as it seems like your throat is starting to close and you feel like you can't breathe. You feel like you're choking until you drink something to get the food moving again.

If you've ever had that choking experience with food -- and it occurs quite often -- you may have cancer of the esophagus.
