Rap producer Kanye West apparently didn’t have to resort to a publicity stunt to sell his NIKE Air Yeezy 2 sneakers. The troubled rapper’s newest NIKE design was the subject of a fierce bidding war on eBay yesterday. The shoes, which aren’t available to the general public until Saturday, sold to the highest bidder for $90,300 on Wednesday. There are reports that sneaker enthusiasts are already lining up to buy the limited edition sneakers on Saturday. That’s good news for Kanye who is still heated that Louis Vuitton didn’t want his designs. But one Nike Superstore won’t be carrying the Air Yeezy’s on Saturday. A rep at the Nike Superstore at Lenox Mall told Sandrarose.com that the decision was made not to sell the Air Yeezy’s because Kanye’s fans would be too disruptive to neighboring businesses in the moderately upscale mall.

If there is any subject that Janet Jackson knows well, it’s trannies. Janet is an Icon in the lesbian, gay and transgender communities.

So it comes as no surprise that Janet is helping to put together a documentary on transgenders titled ‘Truth’.

As the executive producer of Truth, Janet will conduct some of the interviews herself. Production begins this Summer and will focus on the lives and struggles of transgender persons.

In a statement, Jackson says she is working on the project to try to stop discrimination of the transgender community.

The documentary will be directed by Robert Jason, and will feature stories from North America, Europe, Australia and Latin America.

From the mouths of babes. A 14-year-old radio talk show host is blasting homosexuality as a choice people make. Dismissing the much totuted theory that some babies are born gay, Caiden Cowger says says “people are not born gay no matter what Lady Gaga says.”

Calling homosexuality “sickening,” Cowger blamed President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for “indoctrinating” teens and “encouraging” them to be gay. “We’ve got about 30 teenagers in this county.. that are homosexuals,” says Cowger.

The teenager criticized the president for supporting gay marriage. He made the controversial statements during his radio show.

When George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, lied to the judge during George’s bond hearing, she set the stage for her own possible arrest on perjury and contempt of court charges.

Now Zimmerman, who is charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, is back in jail after Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked his bond on Friday for lying about his assets.

Shellie Zimmerman was under oath when she gave telephone testimony on April 20. She told Judge Lester that George was indigent and had no assets or money to pay his bond.

But bank records show that the day before the hearing, the Zimmermans were flushed with cash after collecting over $200,000 in public donations to his personal website.

Yesterday I told you that Rev Run’s daughter confirmed her fledging romance with rap mogul Master P’s son, Lil Romeo. Later that day Angela and Romeo, 22, were spotted shopping together at the Grove in Hollywood. Although Romeo seemingly denied a new romance with the 24-year-old entrepreneur, sources say Romeo is smitten with Simmons, who shot to fame on her father’s reality show, Run’s House in 2005.

Is that something he’s particularly Good at?” Good for her!

    According to my west coast connect, Kris Jenner, mom of Kim and Khloe Kardashian, is having a difficult time getting a spin off for her unemployed son, Rob Kardashian.

    Jenner had hoped to match Rob with celebrities, such as singer Rihanna, in the hopes of creating a reality show around them. But Rihanna was totally uninterested in Rob. So now Jenner has pinned her hopes on Rob and British singer Rita Ora.

    Jay Z’s protege, Rita, is struggling to find fame in the United States. She thought her manufactured friendship with Rob would help put her on the map in the U.S. But unlike his sisters, Khloe and Kim, no one really cares about Rob in the US. So he can’t help her.

    Getting Rob Kardashian a reality show spin off remains a difficult task for Jenner. There are no sparks between Rob and Rita, who always look bored in each other’s company. And they have failed to generate blog interest in their manufactured relationship.

    NY Knicks’ center Amar’e Stoudemire and his fiancee, Alexis, watched Boston Celtics defeat the Miami Heat in game 5 at American Airlines Arena Tuesday night. Amar’e popped the question at a romantic setting in Paris, France last week. The couple have 3 children together – 2 girls and a boy.

    The Boston Celtics pulled off a stunning 94-90 upset over league MVP LeBron James and his Miami Heat in game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals Tuesday night in Miami.

    The defeat was the Heat’s 2nd loss on their home court during the post-season. Miami jumped out to a quick 13 point lead over the struggling Shamrocks in the first quarter. But the Heat couldn’t hold on to the lead despite the much-anticipated return of forward Chris Bosh, who suffered a groin sprain in the 1st round.

    Bosh was sorely missed after sitting out 9 games in the post season. His return to the court was expected to help Miami solve the Kevin Garnett problem in the paint. But Bosh saw limited action, playing only 14 points, scoring 9 points and grabbing 7 rebounds.

    A source told the NY Daily News’ Gatecrasher that Kimora and her “Gladiator” hubby have split after a “big fight over money.”

    It seems the Dopamine faded long ago for Hounsou, 48, and Kimora, 37, who “aren’t as committed to each other as they used to be.

    “Djimon walked out on Kimora,” says the source, who adds that the split may have been prompted by Simmons’ ex-husband, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons’ decision to stop funding his wife’s lifestyle.

    If you haven’t been following the drama surrounding Nicki Minaj’s beef with New York’s Hot 97, basically what happened was Hot 97 morning show host Peter Rosenberg took the mic during a pre-Summer Jam festival and sh*t on Nicki Minaj’s single “Starship”, saying:

    “I know there’s some chicks here waiting to sing ‘Starships’ later, I’m not talking to y’all right now. F*ck that bullsh*t. I’m here to talk about real hip-hop sh*t.”

    Nicki Minaj, and her boss Lil Wayne took offense to Rosenberg’s comment. (The truth hurts?)

    Wayne, who was already feeling some kind of way after being dissed by the Oklahoma City Thunder NBA team, took to his Twitter page to complain bitterly about Rosenberg’s insult.

    This is what happens when celebrities bite the hands that feed them. Once rappers reach a certain plateau in their careers, they get amnesia and they forget that the big market radio stations (and their fans) are responsible for their careers.
