The Obamas vs The Wests

Music producer Kanye West claims his future wife, Kim Kardashian, is more “intriguing” and “influential” than first lady Michelle Obama.

West, 36, made the controversial statements in a new interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest, this week. West is still insulted that Vogue magazine cut Kim out of a photo featuring him at the MET Costume Gala earlier this year. He is also peeved that Vogue Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour passed Kim over for a coveted cover.

“There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue,” he whined. “She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday.”

Chris Brown leaves Washington D.C. Courthouse

Troubled singer Chris Brown checked himself into a drug rehab facility in hopes of convincing a California judge that he should not be held responsible for his criminal actions.

The LA Times reports that Brown, 24, checked into rehab a day after his charge for feloniously assaulting a man was reduced to a misdemeanor assault.

“Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility,” a representative for the singer said in a statement Tuesday. “His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.”

Rehab probably won’t do Brown any good. Brown’s antisocial problems stems from his lack of parental love and guidance as a boy, which caused him to mistrust adults and withdraw from society at large.

Gabrielle Union Dwyane Wade

It looks like power couple Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are trying to make another go of their relationship after she caught him cheating with a NBA groupie.

Wade, 31, helped celebrate Gabrielle’s birthday at an intimate get-together with friends yesterday. She turned 41 today. The couple didn’t announce their engagement last night as rumor mongers had said they would. Gabrielle was previously married to retired NFL player Chris Howard. Gabby has told friends marriage is an overrated experience. She believes a wedding isn’t necessary to express Love for one another. Especially if there are no children involved. Smart girl.

Ciara and Future engaged

Pop singer Ciara Princess Harris, 28, and her short term boyfriend, Nayvadius D. Wilburn, aka Future, 29, are engaged to be married. This news comes as no surprise for two reasons: Ciara is rumored to be pregnant with Future’s 3rd child, and Ciara is a love addict.

“If I’m Dreaming I Don’t Want To Wake Up..Aaaaaahhh!!!:)” Ciara tweeted Sunday.

Like most women, Ciara confuses Dopamine addiction for Love. When the Dopamine fumes fade in less than a year, she and Future will probably wonder what they saw in each other.

Dopamine addicts are easy to spot: they are the women who speed through relationships and marry quickly without allowing nature to take its natural course.

These women believe they are entitled to be loved and entitled to be married because they are special.

Chris Brown gay slur

Troubled singer Chris Brown spent the weekend in a Washington, D.C. jail cell after he was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with assaulting a man. Under D.C. law, scofflaws must sit in jail all weekend until they go before a judge on Monday.

According to a report on gossip blog TMZ.com, the incident happened around 4:30 a.m. outside a D.C. hotel where Brown was staying. Two women approached the singer and asked for a photo. While taking the photo with the women, a man photobombed the picture. A fight ensued and Brown allegedly punched the man in the face — breaking his nose.

That’s the victim’s story. Brown’s camp is telling a different story. They say the victim tried to enter the star’s chartered bus. Both Brown and his bodyguard were arrested.
