Rap icon Lil Kim went from 0-100 on R&B singer and reality star K. Michelle yesterday. Before we get to the roasting I should mention that K. Michelle’s current album, Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart? (Atlantic Records), is on pace to top 100,000 in record sales next week. That puts her in very rare company as only 2 other urban artists — and no other female R&B singer — sold more than 100K records in all of 2014!
Furthermore, I listened to K. Michelle’s album yesterday and it’s actually pretty good. So put aside your personal opinion of her and go support our urban artists by copping the CD!
Now on to the roasting!
R&B singer Ginuwine reluctantly confirmed rumors that he is separated from his wife of 11 years, American rapper Tonya M. Johnston, aka Solé.
R&B Singer August Alsina passed out and fell into the crowd of stunned women during a performance at Irving Plaza in NYC Monday night. Video taken by a concertgoer shows Alsina’s legs going limp as he fell into the crowd. Word from Alsina’s camp is the lanky 22-year-old singer hadn’t eaten after smoking too much “Knockout” — a strong Grade A++ strain of medical marijuana.
Singer August Alsina is shaping up to be the biggest jerk in all of hip hop. He is known more for his erratic and disrespectful behavior than for his music. The latest incident involving the 21-year-old “Testimony” singer occurred at a concert in Little Rock, Arkansas, where Alsina became unhinged over the loss of his cherished hat.
The son of 1980s R&B singer Miki Howard claims to be the illegitimate son of pop icon Michael Jackson. Brandon Howard, 31, will release DNA evidence today “proving” he is Michael’s son on a website that is affiliated with gossip blog TMZ.com. By coincidence, this bizarre report originated on TMZ. But other, more credible media outlets are picking up the story as if it is a fact.
Brandon, a struggling R&B singer, claims to have culled Michael’s DNA from a dental device. He claims the DNA proves he is Michael’s son.

R&B singer Ashanti is catching heat for what her fans are saying was a “homophobic” tweet. The singer, who once dated rapper Nelly, asked her Twitter followers to pick the winner of the upcoming Super Bowl, the San Francisco 49ers or the Seattle Seahawks.
After one rude fan tweeted: “Your flop single”, Ashanti clapped back by tweeting: “don’t be mad at me cause u in the closet… Flop that ya lil b#tch lmao!”
