Beyonce Tiffany Riddick

Normally Beyonce runs a very tight ship. It is an extremely rare occurrence when an insider breaks rank and speaks to the media about the Beyonce's inner sanctum. Getting information from behind Beyonce's iron curtain is like pulling teeth (I know because I've tried on numerous occasions).

I had no clue that singer Bobby Brown dated Janet Jackson until I read an excerpt in his autobiography “Being Bobby Brown: The Truth and Nothing But …”

“I can recall that I started drinking heavily when Janet Jackson and I broke up. Before I met Janet I would never drink hard liquor, I only drank beer. But after our break up, I started drinking hard liquor abundantly. I took the way our relationship ended very hard. Not to say we were head over heels in love, but she was someone I had a lot of feelings for. Besides, we were young and naive. I was only about 19 or 20 years old. Young love is no joke!”

Thanks to loyal reader Lisa Jackson for sending this scan of a now defunct Fresh magazine featuring lovebirds Bobby and Janet on the cover!

I had one word when I watched this video after loyal reader Debra emailed it to me last week: shocked!

The video was filmed during a dance competition in California on April 10. It shows 5 scantily clad 8 and 9-year-old girls dancing to Beyonce's hit song "Single Ladies."

Now that the video has gone viral all over the Internet, two of the parents have come forward to defend their lack of parenting skills. The two parents appeared on Good Morning America today (I guess the other parents were too embarrassed to show their faces on TV).

Cory Miller, the father one of the dancers, said the video was "taken completely out of context," and the performance was "completely normal for dancing." Sure it is -- completely normal for dancing in a strip club! I've seen strip moves that are tamer than the dance steps these children performed.

Another parent, Melissa Presch, defended the children's skimpy outfits, which she claimed were necessary for flexibility.

"The costumes are designed for movement, unrestricted movement and to show body lines," she said. What body lines???

"We're very proud of our daughters and their accomplishments," she added.

Well, I hope that in a few years these two idiot parents will be equally as proud when their daughters come home knocked up and make them instant grandparents.

Ciara

Ciara must be forgetting that she's not living in Bankhead Courts any more? Local residents in LA called the cops on CiCi to complain about her loud music. Narcissists typically don't consider the rights of others:

Singer Ciara had a brush with cops on Tuesday night (May 11) when a playback of her new songs prompted complaints from local residents.

The Goodies hitmaker was celebrating a pal's birthday in Los Angeles when they decided to continue the party in a nearby parking lot.

Ciara insisted it was the perfect time to unveil her latest recordings to her friends - but their raucous reactions resulted in a visit from police officers. Read More...

She even posted pics of herself with the cops on her Twitter page (I know, slow news day).


They say that pop singer Rihanna is being pushed by her mentor Jay Z to be the face of a new chain of burlesque themed nightclubs. Rihanna and her bestie, Melissa, partied at the swanky Mahiki nightclub until 4:30 am last night.

Usher's live performance on the Oprah Show today was spectacular! He performed his entire routine without losing his breath or his step. That's the mark of a consummate professional!

Usher and Will.I.Am performed his #1 hit "OMG" while Oprah giggled like a school girl on the side of the stage. At the end of his performance, Usher tossed his sweaty sunglasses over at Oprah who caught them and put them on! Great performance!

Christina Milian and baby

Right off the bat, new mommy Christina Milian is showing her tendency to be a hands-off mom by using a nanny. A lot of new moms are timid like that. Plus, Christina has a fading music career to resurrect (if that's at all possible).

Christina Milian and baby
Christina is looking fine as I don't know what with all that white on. While shopping yesterday, I picked up a few all white outfits for myself. LisaRaye is starting a new trend!

From London's bio:

LONDON
Among the many hopefuls who attempt to make it big in the music industry, only a chosen few obtain the goal. Even more elusive are those who exceed it. They’re the ones who have that elusive "it" quality – the ones whose genuine talent and ability to engage an audience and deliver a song with a matchless style sets them apart from the masses. The ones like London. Armed with years of preparation and an abundance of talent, this burgeoning singer-songwriter is destined to stand out in a sea of “next big names” in R&B music via his Universal/Motown debut, Man of My Word.

A native of Oakland, California, London’s talent for singing was initially discovered as a child. He sang in his church choir and he eventually joined them. As an adolescent London set his sites on a career in music but like many of his peers in the hip-hop generation, singing didn’t strike him as a particularly masculine hobby. Instead, he opted to make his professional foray into the industry as a rapper as a member of the eight-man crew Keep It Clean. The group had begun to see moderate success but sought to add an element that would give them that unique edge.
