K Michelle new record deal

Studio singer K. Michelle is relieved that she can drop the title “mixtape singer” from her résumé. The 26-year-old mother of 1 announced her new record deal with Warner Brothers on her Twitter page Monday.

It isn’t clear if K. Michelle is bedding the recording executive who signed her. As you may recall, the last executive who signed K. Michelle to a record deal (MempHitz) lived up to his name by slapping the taste out of her mouth whenever she got loud or stepped out of line. Neither the record deal nor their relationship ended very well.

    According to my west coast connection, Frank Ocean’s new boyfriend, French model Willy Cartier, is dating French singer Shy’m. So does Frank know about this? Or does he not care because he’s dating a pretty boy model who helps boost his low self-esteem? Also, Willy doesn’t speak English very well, so how do they communicate?

    Deanna Nolan and Dorothea Sanchez-Nolan

    Last week the news broke about the arrest of former WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw who took a bat to her ex-girlfriend’s car and fired a handgun into it.

    Holdsclaw isn’t the only WNBA player to be arrested for assaulting or threatening her lesbian lover.

    Professional basketball player Deanna “Tweety” Nolan, 33, was arrested earlier this year for beating the air out of her wife and mother of her 2 children.

    Very little, if any, news coverage was given to the Deanna/Dorothea fisticuffs.

    According to MTV and other news outlets, things aren’t going so well on her 777 Tour plane. Rihanna invited 200 of her biggest Stans, bloggers and media people to accompany her on her 7-city world tour to promote her new album.

    Without telling anyone, Rihanna decided to charter a second private jet for herself and a privileged few — leading to rumblings about “3rd world conditions” on board the 777 tour plane, where passengers have gone days without adequate food and drinks.

    Things got so bad on board the tour plane that a hungry Stan ripped off his clothes and streaked through the plane naked. Bedlam ensued which forced the Def Jam staff to leave the comfort of their 1st class section and demand that everyone riding in coach pipe down.

    Rocsi Diaz

    Rocsi Diaz can breath a sigh of relief now that she’s cashing paychecks now that she’s no longer unemployed. Diaz made her ET debut on the red carpet at this weekend’s American Music Awards. The Jasmine Brand reports that Diaz confirmed her new gig during a call into Power 105’s Breakfast Club on Monday. Diaz’s regular ET segments will air on Mondays.

    McKayla Maroney and President Obama

    A photo of President Obama mimicking Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney’s not impressed facial expression went viral on the Internet over the weekend. The White House tweeted the photo that was taken during a visit by Maroney and the “Fierce Five” Olympic gymnasts team.

    Maroney was surprised that Obama asked about her expression of disgust at winning a silver medal during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

    “He was the one who brought it up,” Maroney told The Associated Press. “We were about to leave and he said, `I want to talk to you one second about the face.’ He said, `I pretty much do that face at least once a day.”‘

    Maroney tweeted about making “the face” at the White House. “Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President.”

    Kevin Clash Elmo Sheldon Stephens

    Just as we thought: Kevin Clash, the man behind the voice of Sesame Street’s iconic puppet Elmo, bought his accuser’s silence for $125K, TMZ reports. In addition to cutting a phat check, Clash and his attorneys demanded a retraction of public statements that his accuser Sheldon Stephens made about having underage sex with the puppeteer.

    In a prelude to a lawsuit, Stephens claimed he had sexual relations with Clash, 52, when he was only 16.

    Multiple sources tell TMZ that Clash and his attorneys met with Stephens and his legal team to hand over the check — and to hash out an agreement that including only one stipulation:

    Stephens agrees that immediately upon execution of this Agreement, his counsel, Andreozzi & Associates, P.C., shall release the [following] statement … ‘He [Stephens] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship.'”

    Lil Scrappy Obama tattoo

    Rapper Lil’ Scrappy commemorated President Obama’s 2nd term in office by getting a tattoo permanently inked on his right lower abdomen. The location of the tattoo of Obama’s face might pose a problem if Scrappy ever comes down with an acute case of appendicitis. The surgeon’s knife would slice directly into Obama’s face so the surgeon could remove Scrap’s inflamed appendix.
