Drake and Rihanna

Canadian rapper Drake says his brawl with singer Chris Brown in a now-defunct NYC nightclub was one of the lowest points of his career.

In a sit-down interview with GQ magazine, on newsstands now, Drake called the fight "embarrassing."

"It's embarrassing, the amount of media coverage," said Drake. "Two rappers fighting over the woman. He's not even a rapper, but still, it's the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music. But he's made me the enemy, and that's the way it's gonna stay, I guess."

    The National Security Agency (NSA) disclosed in a classified Capitol Hill briefing that it didn't obtain court orders to listen in on Americans' phone calls.

    Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, made the disclosure on Thursday to members of Congress, CNET reports. The authorization extended to emails and text messages too.

    According to CNET, "the Justice Department has secretly interpreted federal surveillance law to permit thousands of low-ranking analysts to eavesdrop on phone calls."

    In light of this most recent disclosure, it comes as no surprise that the Obama administration has quietly spent $2.2 BILLION dollars handing out free Obama phones to poor people (mostly blacks and Hispanics).

    The reason for this wasteful expenditure of taxpayers' money is simple: it's easier to listen in on phone calls if everyone has a phone.

    Chief Keef

    Chicago rapper Chief Keef was detained by Chicago police today shortly after paying a speeding ticket.

    The rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, pleaded guilty this morning to a speeding charge. He was ordered to pay $531 in fines and put on probation for 18 months. Cozart was also ordered to perform 60 hours of community service.

    "I think you think you're invincible, and you're certainly not," Cook County Circuit Court Judge Earl Hoffenberg chastised Keef. "Violate [conditions of the plea agreement] and you'll find out you're not. I sure hope I don't see you again, because if I do you better be ready to go to jail."

    "I'm really not sympathetic to people who don't listen to me," the judge added.

    Dwyane Wade Caught Cheating Again

    We all remember those days when the dopamine coursed through our veins, filling us with euphoria and causing us to believe we had found that one true love. Then reality sets in once the dopamine fades. We all know that once the dopamine wears off, one or both partners seeks out someone else to fill them with that euphoria they once felt for each other.

    Sources say the dopamine has long since faded for Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade and his actress lover Gabrielle Union. Union no longer tweets about Wade on her official twitter account. And Wade is rumored to be expecting a baby with a shameless jump off, who taunts Union from her courtside seat that Wade purchased for her. That could help explain why Dwyane has been missing in action during the NBA Finals.

    Kanye Wets's Yeezus Springs a Leak

    Kanye West is probably somewhere doing some furniture moving now that his much-antipated album, Yeezus, was leaked in advance of it's June 18 release date.

    Kanye is understandably paranoid about guarding his music from ruthless bootleggers.

    To prevent unauthorized leaks of his and Jay Z's CD Watch the Throne, West, 36, recorded and mixed the tracks in portable studios set up in hotel rooms rather than established studios where leaks are known to occur.

    The Game Fights for His Right to Sag His Pants

    Rapper The Game is speaking out against a New Jersey ban that prohibits sagging pants on the world famous boardwalk. The law bans the wearing of pants that sag 3 inches below the hips, exposing skin or underwear.

    But Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, is outraged by the anti-sagging law which he compares to slavery.

    Like most rappers, The Game is blissfully ignorant to the fact that most decent citizens do not want to see the color and brand of underwear he has on.
