Photos from his meet and greets went viral, and fans lined up at his concerts to purchase $1,000 passes, sometimes with their parents' credit cards.

"I appreciate the f*ck outta them," he wrote on Instagram, in defense of his prices.

"These are memories that will last with them forever. Unlike most of these lame-ass artists that won't even make eye contact with the people who made it possible to even have a career."

Now comes word that rapper Megan Thee Stallion is holding similar raunchy meet and greets for her fans to promote her new album.

Photos and videos from Megan's meet and greets show her posing seductively and provocatively with male and female fans.

One fan echoed the sentiments of all Megan Thee Stallion fans:

"Would quite happily exchange the last 10 years of my life for a meet and greet with Megan Thee Stallion."

Question: Would you pay for a meet and greet with Megan?

Rapper Meek Mill says eating psychedelic mushrooms, also known as shrooms, make him smarter.

The 35-year-old "Dreams & Nightmares" rapper shared his preference for the psychedelic drug on Twitter.

"I took some strooms [sic] it made me more smart more happy and have more love in my heart ... I was gone cold this shit like medicine ... micro dose vibes ... I don't know if everybody brain structured for this .. but it's some shit in these things lol."

Shrooms are hallucinogens that can distort a person's perception of reality. You shouldn't operate motor vehicles or handguns if you're high on shrooms.

According to healthline.com, shrooms can stay in your system for 24 hours. The effects of shrooms can last 3 to 4 hours.

Rappers are turning to shrooms because they are not illegal - yet. They're relatively cheap to purchase from a street dealer or convenience store. And they don't show up in routine drug tests.

Most people eliminate shrooms in their urine within 24 hours, making them undetectable by urine drug tests.

Sometimes rappers forget that they are the idolized by impressionable youths. So expect your teenager to start tripping off of shrooms because Meek endorsed it.

Nunez said his secret to eternal youth is staying busy and eating anything he wants.

"I can run a thousand miles, play 100 games of basketball, I don't need Viagra," he bragged during the interview. "I got abs 24-7. I haven't worked out. I eat anything I want and I never get tired."

About 40% of men begin to experience erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, by age 40. Nearly 70% of men will experience ED by age 70.

ED is the male version of menopause, which causes decreased testosterone that affects a man's sex drive and libido.

An erection occurs when the brain signals the muscles in the penis to relax which increases blood flow.

As men age, nerve signal pathways from the brain are interrupted and they can't stay erect.

Medications such as Viagra help to increase blood flow to the penis and restore a man's vitality and sex life.

Nunez and his wife Yulanda Simon were married in 1994 and they share two daughters, Mia and Micole.

Nunez made his acting debut at age 20 on a 1984 episode of Automan.

He captioned the video, "Today's work Cardi B" in Spanish.

One fan wrote, "Say it isn't so... You marked up that BEAUTIFUL face."

Sheree, who divorced Smith in 1995, shares 29-year-old son Trey Smith with the Oscar-winning actor.

But Sheree says she has made an effort not to "blur lines" of friendship with Jada, who shares daughter Willow and son Jaden with Smith.

Sheree says she makes their friendship work for the sake of the children.

"You have to keep the main thing and those are our children. It's about making it work for their well-being," she said.

Lizzo is engaged to Myke Wright after dating for three years.

Sources say the Grammy Award-winning singer is engaged to the standup comedian, but she's not ready to confirm it just yet.

According to MTO News, Myke popped the question and Lizzo said "Yes!"

The news comes after Lizzo admitted she's in a "non-traditional" relationship with Myke.

During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Lizzo said being in a monogamous relationship scares her. The bisexual singer prefers an open relationship.

"I think a traditional relationship [for 10 years] scares me, but love is forever. I can love somebody forever," she said.

Lizzo confirmed her relationship with Myke during an appearance on Andy Cohen's radio show "Radio Andy" on April 18.

Lizzo said she's not one to adhere strictly to rules.

"Monogamy, I think to me, is a little claustrophobic — I think because there's the rules," she said.

"I think a love relationship that's not monogamous has no rules. I think people who do poly and all that stuff — there's still rules. I don't want any rules."

But that doesn't mean I'm out here f–king and sucking and ducking," the singer explained. "It doesn't mean he is either. It just means that there are no expectations, and that way, the love gets to just be the main event."

Lizzo said Myke is a part of the "genuine" inner circle she runs in.

"Even the man I'm with, he knew me before all of this too. We were friends," she said. "It hit different when they knew you before 2019."

Rosita is canceled.

Sesame Place in Philadelphia responded to a $25 million lawsuit by removing all traces of Rosita from the park.

Sesame Place came under attack last month when viral videos showed the Rosita character apparently ignoring Black children at the Sesame Street-inspired theme park.

Viral videos seemed to show the furry 5-year-old Mexican character walking past Black and brown children while stopping to engage with white kids.

The Rosita character no longer appears in the theme's park's daily parade. But Rosita's picture is still on the website.

Sesame Place workers told a reporter the characters are instructed to remain on the floats and to avoid interacting with any children.

The move comes after a Black family filed a $25 million lawsuit against Sesame Place.

"None of the character's walk the street in the parade any more, and any meet and greets for her have been called off," an employee said, according to DailyMail.com.

"That is all because of the allegations, they don't want anyone potentially making the same claims. Essentially, Rosita has been cancelled and I don't think she'll be back any time soon."

Are you good with exotic animals? Rapper Rick Ross is looking for someone to feed his two lion cubs.

On Tuesday, the rapper took to Instagram and posted a wanted ad for a caretaker among his 15.6M followers.

Ross explained that he's interested in acquiring pet lion cubs for his Promiseland Estate in Fayetteville, Ga. near Atlanta.

"I'm looking to hire someone to feed both my CUBS once they are delivered from SENEGAL," he captioned a video clip.

He shared a video showing a hunky and fearless zookeeper playing with the cubs.

"Hi guys! Rick Ross, today I am here with the baby cat. Your baby cat is here, they are ready. Yeah, you can see them here in Senegal, West Africa. Yeah, Rick Ross, they are ready for you."

The problem is, lion cubs tend to grow big fairly quickly. Technically, they're still cubs even though they're the size of fully grown lions.

The other problem is the cubs play rough and they sometimes eat their caretakers by mistaking them for food.

Ross would feed them himself, but he needs both of his hands in his line of work as a famous rapper.

So, Ross is looking for a fearless person who won't panic if the cubs get a little aggressive in their play.

So far Ross hasn't found someone willing to feed his exotic animals. I'm told he's holding off on delivery of the born killers animals until he does find someone.

Hopefully, the gig offers excellent health and life insurance benefits.

Serena Williams announced she is retiring from tennis after the 2022 US Open tennis championships later this month.

Her announcement took the tennis world by surprise.

Williams has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles — the most by any player in the Open Era. She is second only to Margaret Court who has 24 singles titles.

But the 40-year-old mom-of-one has been plagued by injuries for most of her career.

In an op-ed piece she wrote for American Vogue magazine, Williams suggested she's tired of chasing the Grand Slam singles record.

Williams wrote that she was unable to discuss retiring with anyone but her therapist.

"I've been reluctant to admit to myself or anyone else that I have to move on from playing tennis," Williams wrote. "Alexis, my husband, and I have hardly talked about it; it's like a taboo topic. I can't even have this conversation with my mom and dad. It's like it's not real until you say it out loud. It comes up, I get an uncomfortable lump in my throat, and I start to cry. The only person I've really gone there with is my therapist!"

Williams said she isn't comfortable using the word "retirement," even though she's going through with it.

"Maybe the best word to describe what I'm up to is evolution," Williams wrote in Vogue. "I'm here to tell you that I'm evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me."

British pop star Rita Ora is a married woman. The 31-year-old singer married New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi, 47.

They reportedly tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in her native London, England.

Rita will not take her husband's last name. She will go by Rita Waititi-Ora.

A source told The Sun, Rita is planning "A big, showbiz-style bash to celebrate."

Best Image / BACKGRID

"Rita's already back in the studio working on her third album, with her latest session being with Ava Max and Noah Cyrus' writer Rollo," the source said.

The marriage surprised Rita's fans since she and Waititi became engaged in September 2021 after dating less than 6 months. They announced their engagement 2 months ago.

BACKGRID

Fans are concerned about the age difference, and they fear Rita is moving too quickly into marriage with a much older man.

Waititi finalized his divorce from his wife of 11 years, Chelsea Winstanley, a few months ago. They share two daughters.

Waititi also dated New Zealand actress and writer Loren Horsley for 10 years until 2011.

Judge Mathis says Ashanti should hit Irv Gotti with a cease & desist for spilling intimate details about their relationship.

Ashanti and rapper Nelly started dating in 2003 and broke up in 2014. Irv, who dated Ashanti in the early 2000s, found out that she was cheating on him with Nelly while they were still together.

Rob Rich/WENN

Irv said he was heartbroken because he was "in love" with the beautiful R&B singer.

At the time, Irv was still married to his then-wife.

Irv shared intimate details about his extramarital affair with Ashanti during a recent "Drink Champs" episode.

He even said he was inspired to write Ashanti's 2002 single "Happy" after they finished sleeping together.

Judge Mathis is among those who believe Irv was out of line. Mathis bumped into TMZ while out & about in NYC Monday. He told TMZ's cameraman he'd advise Ashanti to send Irv a cease & desist or even go to court for a gag order to shut him up.

Mathis said even if Irv's claims are valid, he should stop putting Ashanti's business in the streets. On the other hand, if Ashanti feels she's being slandered, she should do something to stop it legally.

If anyone knows about using the courts to shut Irv up, it's Judge Mathis.

Ashanti hasn't reacted publicly to the drama yet. But she did join her old flame Nelly onstage on Friday, Aug. 5, for a playful rendition of their 2008 song "Body On Me."

Kanye West finally deleted his "Skete Davidson" Instagram post following reports that the former SNL comic is in "trauma therapy" over his online bullying.

As you know, Kanye posted a fake NY Times headline on IG that read: "SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT 28".

BACKGRID

Kim Kardashian, who broke up with Pete after 9 months, was reportedly furious and demanded that he take the post down.

But the post was not removed until a story broke on Monday that Pete was in trauma therapy over Kanye's online bullying. That's usually the first step towards a lawsuit of some kind.

BACKGRID

A source tells PEOPLE Davidson "has been in trauma therapy in large part" due to the rap icon's incessant bullying since April of this year."

"The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he's had to seek out help," the source said.

But Kim and Pete's hands aren't clean either. Both of them relentlessly mocked and bullied Kanye online throughout their relationship.

In fact, months before Kim announced her break up with Pete, they dined on a pizza called Ham & Yeezy pizza at Jon & Vinny's restaurant in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, the couple ate a pizza named after Kanye. She even posted an Instagram photo that showed them cuddling at the table with half eaten slices of pizza on their plate.

Fans speculated it was part of a coordinated campaign to drive Kanye crazy by taunting him with photos of her and Pete's PDA.
