Rapper T-Pain is accusing the hip hop community — specifically rappers — of blacklisting singer Frank Ocean because of his sexual preference.
In an open letter on his Tumblr blog in 2012, Ocean wrote that he had “unrequited feelings” for another man. But rather than accept him with open arms, the hip hop community quietly turned their backs on the 26-year-old songwriter (no pun intended). T-Pain suggested other rappers were discriminating against Ocean by not featuring him on their tracks.
Former Xscape lead singer Tameka “Tiny” Harris, 38, is paying tribute to her late father with intricate tattoos of a heart and roses on her back. Tiny Instagram’d a photo of the 2nd stage of her body art which already included a crown for her estranged husband, rap tycoon T.I. Harris, 33. Words inside the heart reads: “You don’t know what it’s like to love somebody the way I love you Daddy.”
Troubled singer Justin Bieber and his father, Jeremy Bieber, were reportedly so abusive to a flight attendant that she was forced to take refuge with the pilot’s in the cockpit of a private jet Bieber leased recently.
The flight attendant and the pilots tell a harrowing story of flying a leased Gulfstream IV jet so filled with marijuana smoke that they wore oxygen masks so they wouldn’t test positive for drugs, which would put their licenses in jeopardy.
NBC News obtained an official report that documented the incidents on board the jet.
“The flight attendant stated the passengers, including Bieber and his father, Jeremy Bieber,” stated the report, “were extremely abusive verbally and she would not work another flight with them.”
Rap mogul Sean “Puffy” Combs, 44, was seen chilling in the meatpacking district in New York City, just 1 day after he supposedly proposed to his longtime concubine, Cassie Ventura, on social media. Combs tweeted a digital image of a 14-carat diamond ring along with the caption, “Baby do you like it?”
Somehow, Combs’ Twitter and Instagram.com followers took that to mean he was proposing to Ventura, a one-hit wonder whose last hit is a distant memory.

I've apologized several times for using the word "Tranny". I don't realize that it was a slur. I'm very sorry for my poor choice of words.
