According to, last night's Twitter feud between struggling R&B singer chris brown and former B2K singer Raz B took a violent turn last night when Raz's brother, Ricky Romance, posted a video threatening to put a "mother f**king pistol" in brown's mouth.

Last night, Brown twittered a response, "Ill be in LA REAL SOON!!!!!!"

Here in Georgia, such language would be deemed a terroristic threat -- and a warrant would be issued for Ricky's arrest. But since he's in Hollywood, nothing will happen to him.

I emailed this entire mess -- including brown's Twitter rant -- to Judge Patricia Schnegg who oversees his probation in LA.

I wanted the judge to see that brown has not changed one bit. Though Judge Schnegg lavished praise on brown during his last progress hearing, he is still very much capable of violence.

Of course she didn't respond.

Troubled singer chris brown once again showed his immaturity and lack of class by throwing another of his infamous twitter tantrums today.

It seems brown heard a rumor that teh Ghey singer Raz B was about to release another lame home video outing him on World Star Hip Hop.

So, instead of calling the man on the phone and discussing the issue privately, brown unleashed a series of angry tweets calling Raz B a homo, among other things.

That boy is so pathetic.


chris brown just retweeted this pic:

The hapless LA Lakers (21-10) continue to spiral out of control after being routed by the San Antonio Spurs 97-82 last night.

Fingers immediately began pointing at conceited Lakers star guard Kobe Bryant who fired up 27 desperation shots at the basket. Center Pau Gasol, who only made nine field goal attempts during the game, couldn't hold his tongue any longer.

"We didn't play a smart game, put it that way," Gasol said. " ... We have to recognize what's going on and understand what our strengths are against certain opponents, and try to exploit them."

"It can't be an individual effort from nobody," Gasol added. "It has to be altogether on a string, like a family." Source

According to the Daily Mail, sources close to the royal family say U.S. President Obama and his wife Michelle will not be invited to Prince William's royal wedding next year.

The prince prefers to hold the first ever "People's wedding" and invite common folk like his fiancée, Kate Middleton.

The prince's eye-opening decision to exclude the Obamas breaks with tradition of inviting heads of state to royal weddings (President Reagan and his wife were invited to Prince Charles' wedding to Princess Diana in 1981).

The royal snub might stem from the fact that Mr. Obama refused to bow to his grandmother, the Queen of England, when they met last year. Obama compounded the insult by giving the Queen an iPOD loaded with his speeches.

Just a few days later, Obama bowed deeply to the Saudi King, which sparked outrage and condemnation here in the United states.

The prince's attendant added: "It is certainly not the case that all foreign heads of state will be excluded. The guest list is still being drawn up and could change, but as things stand it’s right (to say Mr Obama will not be invited)."

A St James’s Palace spokesman said: "The wedding will not be a formal state occasion since Prince William is neither the sovereign nor the heir to the throne."

By now you've heard about the brief Twitter spat between Usher Raymond's baby mama, Tameka Foster, and reality TV personality Kandi Burruss last night.

Apparently what happened was, Kandi and her mother, Joyce, were guests on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, following the broadcast of last night's episode of RHOA.

The host, Andy Cohen, asked Kandi who she was crushing on, and Kandi responded, "Usher," because she had heard he could put it down in the bedroom.

Someone on Twitter relayed Kandi's comment to Tameka via tweet. Tameka responded, "Girl that doesn’t surprise me, there isn’t many left in town that she hasn’t so…… Go figure..."

Kandi immediately tweeted, "you on some real bullshit i see…. wow."

Tameka quickly followed up by inviting Kandi to "take it outside," so to speak. "See I like real live convos.. So anyone that wants to talk to me can DIAL or come SEE ME. I don’t play cyber games.."

Though it was snarky, what Tameka tweeted to Kandi wasn't far off the mark.

Everybody knows Kandi has been down that road with quite a few married, and taken, industry cats. It's no secret that Kandi's a slut who only pursues men in committed relationships.

Kandi's baby daddy, entertainment mogul Russell "Block" Spencer, had a girlfriend and kids at home when he sired Kandi's daughter. The chick has no morals, yet she calls herself giving advice to other clueless baby mamas online.

Over the weekend, rapper Nelly vented his frustration at his record label, Universal Records, for failing to promote his latest album, Nelly 5.0. Allegedly, Universal only shipped 200,000 albums to record stores.

I touched on this subject last week in this post after a well-connected industry source reached out to

The source, who is close to Nelly's camp, told me confidentially that Universal Records allocated most of Nelly's marketing budget to promote newcomer Nicki Minaj's debut album, Pink Friday.

The source said Nelly was frustrated with the lack of promotion by Universal which led to decreased consumer awareness of his album. The source also said Nicki's album took top priority over Nelly's even though the critics say Nelly's album is much better than Pink Friday.

Nelly 5.0 was released on November 12 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart, selling 63,000 copies in the first week.

The source claimed some of Nelly's promotional budget also went to maintain Nicki Minaj's "image," which I took to mean her extensive plastic surgery, including hydrogel butt injections.

At the time I was asked to keep this information under wraps because Nelly didn't want to appear to be crying foul about the situation.

But on Saturday, Nelly took to his Twitter page to lash out in a very public way at Universal Records (and by extension, Nicki).

In a tweet that contained a stealthy dig at his label mate, Nelly wrote: "When an artist doesn’t deliver sufficient material they (the artist) gets [his] budget cut for [the] next [artist's] album, or worse, dropped from the label!"

Read Nelly's tweets after the break!

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick scored 6 touchdowns on the hapless Redskins in a memorable Monday Night football game last night.

The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback who lost his job when he was convicted of running a dog fighting ring, did everything right last night.

The MVP candidate led the Eagles to a convincing 59-28 win over the Redskins. He finished the night with 333 passing yards that resulted in 4 touchdowns, and he rushed for 88 yards and 2 more touchdowns.

Any other quarterback would have been celebrated on all the network morning shows today. But Vick's riveting performance on the field was buried under the news of Prince Williams' engagement to his girlfriend of 8 years, Kate Middleton in London.

Many blacks who thought racism would vanish completely in America after they helped elect Barack Obama to the presidency, expressed dismay on social networks facebook and Twitter this morning.

Outraged nationally syndicated Morning show host Rickey Smiley, who can be heard locally on Hot 107.9, lashed out at CNN's Tony Harris, calling him a "house nigga" and a "sell out" for "doggin'" Vick on the network today.

Despite the fact that Vick has paid his debt to society, that same society seems unwilling to forgive him for his past behavior.

Vick was released from prison in 2009 after serving 2 years for torturing and killing pit bulls. He was subsequently dropped by the Falcons after attempts to trade him failed.

He signed with the Philadelphia Eagles and was reinstated to play in Week 3 of the 2009 season.

You can watch Vick's historic performance on the field after the break!

This morning, troubled producer/rapper Kanye West took to his Twitter page to once again rant and rage at an enemy for injuring his fragile ego. This time his imaginary antagonist was the Today Show's Matt Lauer.

"Man I'm heading to Abu Dhabi finna go to Ferrari Land YESSSS!!! But before I take off let me tell you how they did me at the Today show... I went up there to express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist…. While I was trying to give the interview they started playing the “MTV” under me with audio!!!!!!! I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show … and that’s a very nice way for me to put it! HE TRIED TO FORCE MY ANSWERS. IT WAS VERY BRUTAL AND I CAME THERE WITH ONLY POSITIVE INTENT. I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused. I don’t trust anyone but myself! Everyone has an agenda. I don’t do press anymore. I can’t be everything to everybody anymore. I can’t be everybody’s hero and villain savior and sinner Christian and anti Christ!

I can’t take anymore advice!!! I create, I’m creative, I have a good heart, everyone will see and understand one day. Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone! Very judged very scrutinized very criticized! I want everyone to know I have lows all the time but I make it through them! Yo I really wonder if Matt Lauer thought that shit was cool to play the “MTV” clip while I was speaking about Bush?

He played clips of Bush and asked me to look at his face while I was trying to talk to him. I wish Michael Jackson had twitter!!!!!! Maybe Mike could have explained how the media tried to set him up!!! It’s all a fucking set up!!!! This is rock and roll life my people… you can’t stop the truth you can’t stop the music and I have to be strong or “they” win!!!! Sometimes it’s not simple, some days it’s not easy… I just want to create. I love you guys, thanks for the support!

Kanye's upcoming CD, "My Beautiful, Dark Twisted Fantasy," which has already leaked online, is due in stores Nov. 22. Rolling Stone magazine gave the project a "classic" 5 stars.

In a recent interview with Matt Lauer, former president George Bush says Kanye West's 2005 post-Katrina rant: "George Bush doesn't care about black people" -- cut him deep.

In the "Matt Lauer Reports" interview, which will appear on Monday, November 8 on NBC, Bush said Kanye was the racist when he uttered his now famous words on live television.

"I didn’t appreciate it then. I don’t appreciate it now. ... I resent it, it's not true, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency," said Bush.

Lauer replied, "You’re not saying that the worst moment in your presidency was watching the misery in Louisiana. You're saying it was when someone insulted you because of that."

Bush, who is promoting his new book, quickly clarified his statement that Kanye's publicity stunt was just one of the "tough moments" of his presidency.

"I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well," said Bush. "There's a lot of tough moments in the book. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple."

Everyone is talking about the alleged assault charges pending against pop teen idol Justin Bieber.

According to online reports, Justin is accused of assaulting a 12-year-old boy at a laser tag centre in Canada over the weekend.

Bieber, who was in Canada visiting his dad, was allegedly cornered inside the laser tag center by an "aggressive" 12-year-old boy who taunted him and called him a "faggot."

When the boy extended his hand to him, Bieber shoved the kid's hand away and left the area. The boy had no visible injuries.

Bieber was subsequently thrown out of the Planet Lazer Entertainment Centre in Richmond, B.C. by its owner on Friday afternoon, according to one report in Canada. The "Baby" singer was said to have been with two of his bodyguards at the time of the incident.

The boy's father, who told witnesses that he was a lawyer, later complained to police, who are now investigating the claims. A spokeswoman for The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said: "We are investigating an alleged assault at the venue."

Ever since Bieber took the teen world by storm with his high pitched voice and bubble gum hits, he has been the subject of gay rumors.

He surrounds himself with effeminate looking men, and the 16-year-old loves to play with little kids.

His best friend is Will and Jada's son Jaden Smith -- who is not the most macho boy in Hollywood.

And Bieber has never been seen with a girl -- unless you count those staged photos of him kissing his music video co-star in the back of his mom's Honda.

According to TMZ, Bieber will be going public -- probably within the next week -- to lend his support to the anti-bullying campaign.

With all the depressing news about gay teens ending their lives after incidents of bullying, wouldn't this be the opportune time for Bieber to finally come out of the closet?

Correction: I just got off the phone with Waka Flocka's mom Debra Anteny who denies reports that he son and her artist Gucci Mane are beefing. She explained that Waka and Gucci Mane were trying to get Waka's brother and producer Lex Lugar into the club. They were not beefing. More on this later.

Well, the love fest didn't last long.

Just two weeks ago it was all love between rappers Gucci Mane and Waka Focka at a MTV Awards after party in Hollywood.

When they returned to the A from the west coast, Gucci even walked Waka over to his personal jeweler, Fezi, and the two men purchased identical custom chains in the shape of a camera dipped in the best quality diamond chips.

But on Friday night my spies tell me that Gucci and Waka almost came to blows at a pre Hip Hop Awards party in Atlanta thrown by Alex Gidewon and Belvedere Vodka at ESSO nightclub.

My spies couldn't hear what the argument was about, but they say the former friends are at war again.

The shouting match started when Gucci and his crew entered the VIP inside Club ESSO where Waka and his peeps were chillin'. Words were exchanged, then Waka stepped to Gucci Mane. The two crews were quickly separated by security, but the verbal sparring continued minutes later.

Security once again stepped between them and made sure that no fists or jewelry flew.

Can't we all just get along?

Over the weekend, the social networking website was all atwitter over an alleged "hit" put out by one of the NBA premier superstars, Carmelo Anthony.

The drama began unfolding on Saturday (Aug. 28) when Carmelo tweeted this message to his 300,000 followers:

Apparently, a mentally challenged woman who calls herself Kat Stacks sent private messages to Carmelo, who then responded in kind. Maybe 'Melo didn't realize who @iHateKatStacks was and that she would make his private tweets public.

In a panic, Carmelo tweeted the "hit" to his Twitter followers in an overblown macho attempt to prove to his wife that he wanted no parts of the Stack -- and that he was even willing to have the troubled woman roughed up to protect his marriage.

Carmelo then tweeted a photo of the $5,000 hit money in crisp $100 bills for anyone who doubted his word.

Not surprisingly, the tweets and the photo later disappeared from his account followed by a tweet from Carmelo yesterday claiming his Twitter page had been hacked. He also stated he was in China -- as if he had no way of tweeting from China.

We would probably be inclined to believe him were it not for the fact that his wife, LaLa Vazquez (@lala), co-signed everything he tweeted on Saturday!

Do you recall back in 2008 when I told you that fading R&B singer Ciara was being blacklisted in the industry?

Well, nothing has changed much in two years; Ciara's career is still on pause. And now comes word that Ciara's vocals are being scratched from an Usher track off his upcoming EP. The reason, Ciara's stank attitude -- what else?

Singer-songwriter Nire AllDaihas has dampened the hopes of Ciara fans everywhere by implying it’s highly unlikely they will ever hear Usher’s new single ‘Hot Toddy’ with the singers vocals on it.

She claims that Ciara “murked it” on the song, and cited music “industry politics” as the reason why the song may never get released. “To those who are asking about the Ciara version, sadly it will probably never be released” she explains with much regret “I happened to be in the lab the weeks they were mixing the song”.
This is confirmation that the R&B songstress DID contribute to the song and her version was set to appear on Usher’s EP ‘Versus’. The tracklisting cited both Ciara and rapper Jay-Z as having features on the track. However, it was later confirmed that Ciara would no longer be appearing on the cut, disappointing fans in the process. Those who were hoping the song would appear in a remix could very well be in for a rude awakening. You read it here first!  Read More...

Yesterday Young Jeezy dropped a new track titled "Death Before Dishonor", which is a remix to Rick Ross' B.M.F. (Blowing Money Fast).

[audio:Jeezy - Death Before Dishonor.mp3]

The track goes hard with Jeezy throwing lyrical barbs at Ross like, "Got damn hoe/ You got dem massive titties/ might as well roll with me/ to Magic City."

Apparently Jeezy is irritated by Ross' false machismo boasting about his bogus affiliation with the Black Mafia Family whose leader, Big Meech, is currently incarcerated in a federal pen for life.

   How you blowin' money fast?
   You don't know the crew
   Are you part of the fam?
   Shit I never knew

Obviously Jeezy isn't feeling Rick Ross' latest fairy tale. But is he also going in on the South's preeminent club promoter Alex Gidewon (pictured above right with Jeezy)?

Minutes after Jeezy dropped his new track, phones started blowing up all over the ATL as friends of AG wondered aloud if there was beef between the two friends. (I'm told there is no beef).

   Kept the lights on in Visions
   N*gga, Alex know
   Made him famous
   F*ck you think they call him Alex for?

And here I thought I made Alex Gidewon famous? :shrugs:

Fans of Jamaica's Barbee are in an uproar over the way American Barbie Nicki Minaj landed on the island and immediately pulled rank over a sexy singer who also goes by the name Barbee.

Scenes featuring Barbee were left on the cutting room floor during the final edit of Sean Kingston's "Letting Go (Dutty Love)" music video, much to Barbee's fans dismay.

Obviously Nicki Minaj was intimidated by a true Reggae queen who doesn't need butt injections or fake accents to get attention.

I much prefer the original version of the video with the real Barbee in every scene. Sean Kingston is a true punk for giving in to Nicki's tantrums.

Loyal reader Anastasia Rose writes:

I'm vacationing with some friends in Ocho Rios, Jamaica when I see the infamous *NICKI MINAJ*. I was so excited when I realized that Sean Kingston's new video Dutty Love was being shot by my hotel. However, while scoping out the set, I realized that although Ms Nicki was featured in the song, she definitely wasn't the one everyone was paying attention to.

In all actuality, *the lead of the video, Barbee,* was the star of the shoot. Nicki looked *PISSED* and she was very standoffish to those around her.

Now, I've never heard of Barbee until that weekend but apparently she's a hotshot Reggae artist from the island. So i was really shocked when I saw the release of the video and she was cut out of all the scenes. I know Nicki is known as a Barbie, but was she that intimidated by Barbee.

Heres the *video of Barbie in every scene* I was searching on the web and found the original video with Barbee in all the scenes [view above] and here's the *video that has hit the web with out Barbee*

The family of the Real "Teflon Don" John Gotti, has expressed outrage at the former corrections officer for using the former mob boss' name for profit or fame.

This is not the first or the last time this fraud has helped himself to someone else's identity. A judge recently dismissed a lawsuit against Ross by former crack dealer Ricky "Freeway" Ross, who accused the rapper of hijacking his name and image.

Rick Ross is a man with very low self-esteem who lives in a fantasy world where he assumes the identities of real gangsters who are larger than he will ever be.

Ross has lied about his real background for years. He lied about working as a corrections officer despite the fact that the state produced his official time cards proving he punched a clock in an officer's uniform. Ross lies about his past mainly because his past is boring and doesn't fit in with his grandiose fantasies of the drug lord he wishes he really was.

Last night, after LeBron James announced his decision to play for the Miami Heat, Clevland Cavaliers majority owner, Dan Gibson, released a scathing poison pen "open letter" to the Cleveland Cavaliers fans.

To call the contents of this disturbing "letter" hateful, vicious, revolting and vile would be an understatement. Clearly, Mr. Gibson was pretty darn upset about losing his franchise player.

But Gibson should have known that LeBron James was nothing but a narcissist who cares only about himself. After all, didn't Gibson help to create the monster?


Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight.

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his "decision" unlike anything ever "witnessed" in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don't deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.

You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:


You can take it to the bank.

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our "motivation" to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.

Sorry, but that's simply not how it works.

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown "chosen one" sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And "who" we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called "curse" on Cleveland, Ohio.

The self-declared former "King" will be taking the "curse" with him down south. And until he does "right" by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Cleveland.

Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day....

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue....

Dan Gilbert

Majority Owner

Cleveland Cavaliers

My loyal spy over at Good Morning America emailed me a blurb about Canadian rapper Drake which I casually ignored.

I should have paid more attention because now comes word that Drake was rudely rebuffed by the network brass who clearly had no clue who he was. I wish I could post the email, but I have been warned that the network Gods would not look kindly upon me if I did.

It seems that my blog is more well known over there than Drake is.

Anyway, the gist of the email was that the network wasn't really interested in booking Drake because they considered him to be "just another gangster rapper" -- who was not worth paying the extra security for.

Word is that Drake's camp took offense to that. It seems that Drake's name was brought up in a programming meeting and that someone in the meeting had to clue the other folks in on who he was. Lol.

“We were interested in having Drake perform, but he was never officially booked,” a network spokesperson said yesterday, noting safety concerns. I'm told that the "safety concerns" excuse was floated around as a way to help Drake save face.

Drake's camp disputes ABC by claiming that a booking was indeed n place. But I bet they can't produce the signed paperwork.

The email goes into more juicy detail, but my attorney, Precious Anderson is still out on maternity leave and I just don't want to deal with the drama.

This is the 2nd time in as many months that Drake has been denied a chance to sing off-key in a NYC outdoor concert. Drake's June 15 concert at the South Street Pier was also cancelled after fans of former boy band Hanson began running amok in the streets.

According to online reports, actor Mel Gibson has come under fire after his most recent racist rant was caught on tape.

Gibson's estranged baby mama Oksana Grigorieva recorded an argument between the two that turned ugly when Gibson said, "You're an embarrassment to me. You look like a f--king pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n---ers it will be your fault," has heard the tape, which also includes Mel telling Oksana he would burn down her home.

Mel's profane outbursts are littered with references to Oksana being a "whore" and "c**t". first broke the story about how Mel, 54, and Oksana, 40, filed dueling restraining orders against each other under seal.

Published reports say Oksana is alleging Gibson punched her in the face twice during a fit of rage, giving her a concussion and knocking out two of her front teeth.

A source close to the situation says Oksana claims she was forced to tape Mel after he made a series of death threats.

Said the source, "Mel is doing everything he can to suppress this... they are the rantings of a mad man."

Earlier today, BET aired footage of actress Vivica A. Fox critiquing the fashions displayed by celebrities on the red carpet at the 2010 BET Awards last night.

Vivica wasn't very flattering when it came to her assessment of Monica's avant garde gown. Mo responded to the perceived insult by taking to her Twitter page this evening, and ever so politely, slammed Vivica's age and fashion sense.

I reached out to Vivica for her response to Mo's diss, but she is on a flight to Atlanta at this moment. Vivica will be landing at Hartsfield airport shortly. As soon as she lands, I hope to bring you her response to Monica's diss exclusively!

Once again, I slept through the BET Awards -- or as my loyal readers call it: the EBT Awards.

I swear I had every intention of watching this year's show, especially since the good folks at BET always take such care to send me a credential request form every year, even though I never request one. One year they even filled out the form for me and sent me the credentials with a little note saying "your credential request has been approved," lol.

The BET Awards is the singular urban spectacle of the year that manages to bring together such diverse artists as Nicki Minaj (who has zero talent), El DeBarge, Kirk Franklin and Tyrese, and make it all work.

Judging from the tweets in my timeline from last night, the 2010 BET Awards was the best in years. Since I didn't get a chance to watch the show, the only Ugly moment for me was Chris Brown's fake tears. So I'm posting some of the highlights of the #BETAwards tweets from instead:

The BAD: I searched but I couldn't find a single tweet on my timeline about pseudo-singer Ciara's awful black and gold Balmain frock paired with ankle booties. Why did she even show up when BET dissed her azz by banning her "Ride" video?

I guess NBA bench warmer Matt Barnes felt some kind of way about how his manhood was crushed on the Basketball Wives Reunion last night. In case you aren't familiar with him, Barnes is engaged to BW cast member Gloria Govan, who, according to Hello Beautiful, continuously brags about their "perfect" union.

My regular readers know that when a woman brags too much about her perfect man, she's actually trying to convince herself because she knows the truth is the exact opposite of her life. Remember that insecure women are attracted to insecure men because they think they can change him.

In the video below, at 3:09, Gloria says, “I just want women to know that you can respect yourself and be in a healthy relationship at the same time. And you don’t have to put up with infidelity.”

Last night, during the boring game 3 of the NBA Finals, I logged into my Twitter account to check my DMs and I noticed a few "tweets" debating if a certain celebrity Twitter account was real. The fake account was in the name of the Queen Bee, Lil Kim.

When I checked the page, I saw that she had about 26,000+ followers, but her tweets were extremely juvenile. So I tweeted other celebrities on Twitter, Monica (@MonicaMyLife) and Free (@MissFree), to see if the account was legit. But neither of them knew.

Finally, J.Peak of Peak Publicity (@PeakPublicity) got in touch with the Queen herself via text and she denied the account was hers.

But wouldn't it be truly awesome if that account really was her and she really was going in on other celebrities? Twitter would have experienced a melt down similar to the one that the Boston Celtics experienced on their home court when they lost to the LA Cry Babies.

Two weekends ago, I had drinks with industry insiders at a local bar. Everyone at the table agreed that it really was a young, confused Nicki Minaj in this video claiming she ate Remy Ma's box.

Though she will never admit it (and we don't really need her to since it's been confirmed) -- it shows just how easily Nicki can morph into different personalities like she changes her underwear.

The reign of one of Hollywood's biggest box office attractions is apparently over. Today's big gossip news is actress Megan Fox being booted from the cast of Transformers 3.

Her infraction: bad mouthing Transformers director Michael Bay, who plucked her out of obscurity and launched her career,

In an interview last year, Fox told Wonderland Magazine:

"He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he's a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he's not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he's so awkward, so hopelessly awkward."

Bay reportedly forgave Fox for her snide remarks. But that was back when Megan was on top of the world. One movie flop later (Jennifer's Body) and Megan's star quickly fizzled.

It wouldn't surprise me if Bay pretended to be cool with Fox while waiting in the cut until he could publicly humiliate her in a huge way. If so, it worked.

US president Barack Obama's former pastor Jeremiah Wright is at it again. He is protesting loudly to anyone who will listen that The One threw him under the bus. Haven't we heard this song and dance already?

It seems that back in February, a group calling itself Africa 6000 asked Wright to use his influence with Obama to get Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to fork over some of the millions of dollars in Haiti earthquake relief funds.

But according to Hot Air, Wright told the group he was "toxic" -- and he then vented his frustration against Obama:

In his strongest language to date about the administration’s 2-year-old rift with the Chicago pastor, Wright told a group raising money for African relief that his pleas to release frozen funds for use in earthquake-ravaged Haiti would likely be ignored.

“No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am ‘toxic’ in terms of the Obama administration,” Wright wrote the president of Africa 6000 International earlier this year.

“I am ‘radioactive,’ Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally!” he wrote. “Any advice that I offer is going to be taken as something to be avoided. Please understand that!”

As Hot Air write Ed Morrissey writes: "Does this tell us anything we don’t know about Barack Obama?"

Legendary supermodel Iman called in favors and pulled rank to get "dance music performer" Kelly Rowland kicked off of Bravo's The Fashion Show.

From NY Mag:

Alessandra Ambrosio was rumored to take Kelly Rowland's spot on Bravo's The Fashion Show, hosting alongside Isaac Mizrahi, but Iman got the job. We don't feel bad for Alessandra, who has plenty of other work, but what about Kelly? How will she get attention now? Hopefully Miss Universe is hiring dance-music performers again.


Remember back in the days when singer Trey Songz was 3X harder than he is now -- or at least he pretended to be. I dug deep into the SR archives for this video jewel.

Back in 2007, Trey was performing in a hole in the wall club on the chitlin' circuit when a hater tossed a couple of ice cubes his way.

"Who throwin' ice?" Trey demanded to know. When a chick raised her hand, Trey and his bodyguard leaped off the stage and beat ol' girl beat down! Trey would probably look back on that azz whippin' as the highlight of his career.

I bet some of you ladies yearn for the good ol' days when Trey at least pretended to hard as a rock.
