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.”
Singer Miguel got a little overexcited during his performance at the 2013 Billboard Awards on Sunday. The diminutive singer was performing his hit song “The Thrill,” when he attempted to jump over the crowd and landed on top of a fan’s head. Another girl standing at the front of the stage was also kicked in the head. But always the consummate professional, Miguel didn’t miss a beat as he continued his performance — after lifting his leg off the girl’s head. The girl reportedly suffered a mild concussion. No word on the extent of the other fan’s injuries. Watch the “thrilling” video below.

If you were sitting in the nosebleed section at the 55th Annual Gramnmys when a buzz went through the crowd last night, here’s what happened: troubled singer Chris Brown refused to stand and give singer Frank Ocean his props when Ocean won a Grammy for something or other.
Can you blame Brown? The two men recently went toe-to-toe in a recording studio parking lot in LA. So they have no love for each other.
I was waiting for Hip Hop apologist Russell Simmons to defend the latest incidence of senseless violence in Hip Hop, and Russell did not disappoint. Simmons is always quick to defend rappers who commit assault, rape and other offenses. This time he used a woman to do his dirty work for him.
In an editorial published on Simmons’ blog Global Grind, Evanka Williamson defended Chicago rapper Lil Reese’s actions in a viral video that shows him brutally beating a young woman last year. Reese is also under investigation in the shooting death of 16-year-old Chicago rapper Lil Jojo.
It’s worth noting that Lil Reese did not apologize for his violent behavior until radio program directors and DJs threatened to boycott his records.
Last week a video surfaced online showing Chicago rapper Lil Reese and his GBE associates beating up a woman after barging their way inside her residence.
The year old video surfaced on World Star Hip Hop and instantly went viral, sparking outrage from social networking users who are normally immune to such violence against females.
Over the weekend, real men in Hip Hop stood up to denounce Reese’s girlish behavior. Atlanta “goons” called out Lil Reese for fighting a woman. And HOT 97 PD called Lil Reese a “b*tch” for “knuckling up with a girl.”
Watch the videos after the break.
The young lady who was jumped by rapper/gang banger Lil Reese in a videotaped beat down released a statement via her Facebook page yesterday. Confirming that the assault occurred last year, the woman, whose Facebook username is Self Made Prodigy, described being assaulted by Reese (pictured above) and his sister.

When the news broke in July about the head butt that sent reality TV star Evelyn Lozada to a Florida hospital for stitches, one person who wasn’t entirely sympathetic to Lozada’s pain and suffering was RHOA star NeNe Leakes.
Lozada’s ‘husband’ Chad Johnson, 34, was arrested for allegedly head butting his wife of 41 days during an argument over a condom receipt in August. Johnson subsequently lost his job as a wide receiver with the Miami Dolphins football team — along with lucrative endorsements. He remains unemployed.
When asked if she reached out to Evelyn in an interview with Essence mag, NeNe said, “I wanted to reach out to her, but I didn’t.”
