Troubled singer Rihanna premiered her music video for her 2nd single "U Da One" off her album, Talk That Talk. TTT has managed to sell only 320K units after 4 weeks on the charts, despite the fact that Rihanna has over 10 million followers on the social networking website Twitter.com.
The Melina-directed video is more of the same from Rihanna, slutty imagery juxtaposed with elementary lyrics backed by a simplistic track, and Rihanna's dependency on pot (see screen grab above).
Floyd Mayweather loves to brag about his unlimited supply of cash and his million-dollar collection of flashy jewelry and timepieces. But the boxing champ won't be able to take any of that with him where he's going.
Yesterday a judge sentenced Mayweather to 90 days in jail for beating down his baby mama in front of their kids in September 2010. Mayweather, who thought he was untouchable until yesterday, will be given credit for 3 days served, but he will have to do 87 days of hard time behind bars.
When the judge announced Mayweather's sentence, his knees buckled and his eyes blinked rapidly as if he was fighting back tears. He turned and looked at his high-priced attorneys who can't save him. Celebrity gossip blog TMZ.com reports that Mayweather was sentenced to 6 months in jail, but 3 months of that sentence was suspended.
The judge was especially perturbed that the cowardly Mayweather threatened to beat his children who begged him to leave their mother alone.
The judge also ordered Mayweather to pay a $2,500 fine, complete 100 hours of community service and enroll in a 12-month domestic violence program.
Floyd has until January 6 to turn himself in to prison -- where Bubba awaits.
Take a peek at some of Mayweather's ostentatious bejeweled watch collection after the break.
Just as we suspected: those pics of a bloated, baby whale Beyonce shopping at Bergdorf Goodman were not her. As you can see from the pics below of Bey shopping at Curve in NYC, her nose is not spread across her face, and she hasn't picked up a pound anywhere other than her midsection.
In her shameless, never-ending campaign to stay relevant, Beyonce covers this month's issue of Jones Magazine. Her baby bump is not visible in this cover shot, meaning she removed her prosthetic -- or she knew she was going to be pregnant when these pics were taken. It's interesting that she's talking about motherhood when she isn't even pregnant in these pics!
“I believe that parents prepare their kids for the moment that they’re on their own: at this point, I am taking everything my dad and my mother have taught me, and I’m able to do things my way,” she says.
The cover was shot on the terrace of the Maurice in Paris, France by photographer Greg Gex.
The editor-in-chief of Jackie magazine, which referred to troubled singer Rihanna as a "Niggabitch", has stepped down.
Eva Hoeke cited the relentless attacks from Rihanna's Stans on social media as the reason for her departure. She explained that she used the term "Niggabitch" to describe the ultra slutty personal style that was influenced by Rihanna herself. Hoeke points out that the term was imported from America where we in the black community routinely use "nigga" and "bitch" as terms of endearment.
But since when does a journalist (or blogger) let Stans influence what they write? The article obviously was not a personal attack on Rihanna. Oh, I forgot, Freedom of Speech is only upheld as a constitutional right here in America.
If Rihanna wants respect maybe she should start by respecting herself?
Because of the enormous pressure from social media, I can promise improvement in terms of language used in future issues of Jackie.
Previously, I offered rectification. As I now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution, I am departing.
"The term 'nigga bitch" has come over from America and we have only this to describe this particular style of clothes that we can try to interpret.
"After eight years, with my heart and soul, I have worked for Jackie. I realize that these errors - although no malicious intent - is a reason to leave."
An anonymous reader sent in these pics of Beyonce shopping for baby girl clothes at Bergdorf Goodman yesterday. The images appear to be screen captures from a video monitor. The reader was shocked to see how much weight Beyonce had gained in just a matter of days. But we're not surprised because Beyonce will go to any lengths to fool the public into believing she's pregnant. It is already a foregone conclusion that Beyonce is not pregnant -- but her surrogate is. If and when Beyonce "delivers" her "baby", it won't be in a legally sanctioned hospital or clinic. And the "doctor" who delivers the "baby" will be on Jay Z and Bey's payroll.
Every year the blogs wait anxiously for the Kardashians to release their annual Kristmas Kard so they can over analyze it to death. And this year the Kardashians didn't disappoint. But do they even know what Christmas means? The photographer is Nick Saglimbeni, and the Photoshop graphic artist is unknown.
Kim Kardashian posted the Kristmas Kard on her blog this morning. She will probably be happy to know that she was recognized for yet another honor. She can never get enough attention.
The backlash against Kim Kardashian following her 72-day-marriage has earned the reality TV star a formal title –'Most Ill-Mannered Person of 2011.'
Kim was awarded the rudeness crown by the National League of Junior Cotillions (NLJC) for 'making a private matter public and disrespecting the institution of marriage'. Source
It's still a mystery to me why anyone would spend their rent money on a ticket to watch a goat sing.
While performing her hit single "What's My Name," in Lisbon over the weekend, 23-year-old Rihanna forgot the lyrics to her own song, and slurred some of her words. At about the 1:32 mark, Rihanna gestured to someone in the audience indicating that she was about to hurl.
Moments later Rihanna disappeared into the darkness off the side of the stage. Rumors began to swirl almost immediately on Twitter that the singer was stumbling drunk and vomiting during her concert. Later that night, Rihanna took to her Twitter page and admitted that she did indeed throw up the contents of her stomach offstage, which consisted of a half eaten hot dog and about a quart of alcohol.
We broke the story months ago that Rihanna's record label was concerned about Rihanna's drinking and rumored substance abuse problems. Sources say Rihanna has been on and off the wagon in the past month as she deals with her personal issues, including chasing after a man who is already in a long term relationship.

Socialite Kim Kardashian was spotted boarding a private jet with her family bound for Las Vegas, where she attended the grand opening of her Kardashian Khaos boutique at the Mirage Resort Hotel and Casino yesterday. Talk show maven Barbara Walters conducted an interview with Kim, her mother, Kris Jenner, and her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney back in September. Walters basically told them they had no talent and they won't be around next year. It was a reality check that the family wasn't expecting. Photo: STARPICZ / Splash News
Earlier today, troubled singer Chris Brown premiered his video for his latest single "Strip" featuring K-Mac. I know you don't care about this guy, but some of his Stans still hold out hope that he will make a comeback.
Beer hall singer Beyonce, 30, was spotted shopping with her mother, Tina Knowles, at the Agent Provocateur store in West Hollywood yesterday. Beyonce is on the west coast with her husband Jay Z who is currently performing with Kanye West on the Watch The Throne tour. This means that Bey, who is due to deliver something this month, is still flying on planes in her third trimester.
Any real mother knows that flying at high altitudes in her 3rd trimester puts the fetus at risk, not to mention it can be life threatening for mother and baby.
Gawker.com ran a Blind Item today about a surrogate mother who is living with her toddler in a Lower West Side apartment in Manhattan. The woman is reportedly 8 months pregnant, and looks bigger than Beyonce, who is supposed to be 9 months pregnant. Her rent is being paid for by an unidentified couple. The woman is described as "in her late twenties, and has thick, dark brown hair and medium-colored skin." And there is reportedly a "a full-time staff person and there is always a doctor or nurse on call."
Talk show maven Barbara Walters was a guest on Late Night With Dave Letterman on Tuesday. Letterman grilled Walters about including the Kardashians on her 'Most Fascinating List', even offering to remove them from the list himself.
Walters saw the opportunity to brand the most hated reality TV family as liars:
"They were the first ones we interviewed and we did them in September," Walters explained. "We said, anything going to happen? 'No no no, you can do it now because nothing's going to happen.' Then Kim gets married. Then Kourtney gets pregnant. Then Khloe's moving to Dallas. You cannot trust the Kardashians."
As the Huffington Post explained; Khloe Kardashian can't be blamed for moving to Dallas with her husband, Lamar Odom, who was traded to the Mavericks by the LA Lakers on Saturday.
Twitter.com was in a frenzy last night when news broke of a 3-team deal sending New Orleans Hornets star Chris Paul to the Lakers in return for Pao Gasol and Khloe Kardashian's husband, Lamar Odom.
Before the deal had even been confirmed, Laker haters set their sights on Khloe Kardashian's Twitter account, which was uncharacteristically silent --until word came down that the deal was off.
That's when Khloe took to Twitter.com to proclaim her love for her man -- and to prove that she is nothing like her narcissistic sister, Kim Kardashian. It was amusing to see Khloe subtweeting her own sister, who selfishly refused to follow her husband to Minnesota where he was training in the off season.
Khloe tweeted that she would follow Lamar anywhere, even to New Orleans, which is still rebuilding in the wake of that hurricane.
Pseudo-pregnant singer Beyonce, 30, caressed her baby bump as she exited Sakura Nails in NYC last night with her fiercely loyal bodyguard, Julius, and her stone-faced mom, Tina Knowles (not pictured). Beyonce and her tiny entourage made their way to her waiting custom coach on a rainy evening in NYC's East Village. Beyonce got her nails polished in a bright blue color that matched her Christian Louboutin heels.
Maybe I'm just being picky, but does anyone else notice that Beyonce's bump looks a lot bigger than it did last week on Katie Couric's TV special?
Did anyone watch 'Kim & Kourtney Take NY' last night? The episode took up where last week's episode left off -- after Kim's new husband, Kris Humphries, packed his bags and moving back to his home in Minnesota where he could live in peace.
It seems that the show's producers saw no problem with a grown man sharing a hotel suite with his wife, another couple and their screaming kid. So when Kris left, the producers urged Kim to follow her man to Minnesota and bring him back. Because, after all, didn't she marry him for the show?
When Kim arrived in Minnesota, Kris said, "I've missed you: I haven't missed living with everyone -- crying babies, weirdo yoga teachers. I've been able to focus here ... I'm chilling."
When Kim insisted that Kris return to NY with her, the NJ Nets player explained that in the off-season he still had to train to keep in shape. And his trainer is there in Minnesota.
We watched the manipulative Kardashian use her feminine wiles to goad Kris into returning to NY to live in a cramped suite with his wife, his sister-in-law, Kourtney Kardashian, her baby daddy, Scott Disick, and their kid.
There's a reason the show is called 'Kim & Kourtney Take NY' rather than 'Kim, Kourtney & Khloe Take NY'. It's simple: Khloe has way too much respect for her husband, Lamar Odom, to ask him to leave the city where he trains in the off-season, to live in a hopeless situation just for television ratings.
It was one of those astonishing moments when a celebrity is caught on national television like a deer in the proverbial headlights. It occurred when ABC anchor Katie Couric, who was interviewing the cagey singer Beyonce, reached over, and without warning rubbed the baby bump that has been at the center of controversy for months.
Beyonce appeared startled as she reached down reflexively when Katie copped a feel. "I'm sorry, am I allowed to do that?" Katie asked as she snatched her hand back.
When a woman caresses another woman's baby bump, the moment usually passes quickly between the two women.
But Katie's hand returned to groping Beyonce's baby bump a second time -- as if Katie wasn't confident that what she felt the first time was actually a human baby.
It was clear that Katie was performing a tactile examination of Beyonce's baby bump, which was first introduced to the world in September at the MTV VMAs. Prior to that, no one knew the 30-year-old was pregnant.
Judging from Couric's reaction afterwards, it was clear that she still had her doubts that Beyonce's baby bump was real. But Couric never expressed those doubts on the air. We wish we could have been a fly on the wall when Katie told her friends what she really thought about the baby bump!
