At least one A-lister hates aging rap mogul Jay Z.
Josh Homme, the Queens of the Stone Age singer/guitarist, played Jay Z’s Made in America festival recently, but Homme says he was not impressed with the aging rapper, his festival or the champagne he is currently peddling for dollars.
In an interview with CBC Radio 2?s “Strombo Show”, Homme referred to Beyonce’s husband as a “kook”. Homme was perturbed because Jay Z’s security frisked him and his bandmates and searched their bags, like they were former crack dealers from Brooklyn.
Singer Alicia Keys was spotted arriving at a Rio de Janeiro airport with her son, Egypt, and hubby Swizz Beatz on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Alicia is in Rio to perform at the Rio festival this weekend. Alicia wore cut off denim shorts and a shirt tied casually at the waist.
Chris Brown’s main squeeze Karrueche Tran was spotted leaving Playhouse nightclub with a gay pal around 2:15 a.m. Friday morning. According to the other blogs, Tran barely missed bumping into Brown’s ex-concubine, Rihanna. That would have been an interesting dust-up. I would put my money on Karrueche winning that cat fight.

This Riley Cooper story has gone from laughable to ludicrous. The 25-year-old Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was drunk when he used a racial slur at a country music concert. Cooper spazzed out at a black security guard who wouldn’t let him backstage to meet Kenny Chesney. “I’ll fight every nigger in here,” Cooper said.
Normally when a redneck drops the n-word in a room full of rednecks, no one raises an eyebrow. But a concertgoer captured Riley’s tirade on a cell phone and uploaded it to YouTube.
The response from the professional football league was swift. Cooper was fined an undisclosed sum of money, and he was forced to apologize more than once.
But that wasn’t enough. In a tweet posted today, the Eagles front office announced that Cooper will be suspended from “all team activities” so he can “seek counseling.”
Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles, performed her single “Bad Girls” at a Brooklyn, New York Atlantis laundromat. The 27-year-old singer and DJ Looked a little dead behind the eyes — probably due to medications she allegedly takes to control a rumored mood disorder. Despite the rumors surrounding recent cancellation of Solange’s European concert tour, observers report that she was lucid and lively during the Laundromat show.
Pop singer Alicia Keys, 32, performed live in concert at Bercy in Paris, France on Monday, June 24. The mother-of-one is reportedly still struggling to lose her baby fat 3 years after giving birth to her son, Egypt Daoud Dean.
If you weren’t in attendance at REIGN Nightclub last night, you missed a GREAT show! Old skool rappers Talib Kweli and Pharcyde performed live for an intimate crowd. The monsoon that tore through Atlanta kept a few folks at home, but for the most part it was a great crowd — as you can see from the pictures! Yes, I missed the 2nd half of the NBA Finals game 4 matchup between my Miami Heat and your Spurs, but it was worth it. Talib performed for 2 hours straight, then he went over to Vanquish Lounge next door for a little relaxation with the finest ladies Atlanta has to offer! Thanks again to The Gidewon Group and Jacob York for talking good care of me.
