This has been a week of random stories, don’t you think? This one is no different. 23 year old dancer James Jamari Blackston, who has reportedly worked with Jennifer Lopez, Chris Brown and The Black Eyed Peas, was arrested in connection with the death of 17 year old Nicola Furlong, who attended a Nicki Minaj concert in Tokyo, according to E! Online.
James Jamari Blackston, the dancer, and a 19-year-old male who has been referred to as a musician, were reportedly both in the suite where Furlong was found unconscious at around 3:20 a.m. A hotel staffer came to the room after receiving a complaint about loud noises and, per authorities, found the teen in the room with Furlong, while Blackston was in another room with the victim’s friend.
Mariah Carey and her sister, Allison, have been estranged since 1994 due to a custody battle over Allison’s son. Mariah’s sister has lead a hard life dealing with addiction, prostitution, while being diagnosed with HIV. According to Allison during an interview with The Sun, she is now clean and wants to reunite with her famous sister, and meet her niece and nephew, Moroccan and Monroe. Allison, as seen in this video, has a beautiful voice like her sister but life choices lead her down a different path.
When Mariah did not have food, it was me who came and filled up her fridge. When she did not have clean clothes, I would pay for her laundry. “Mariah and our mother were so broke once they got kicked out of their apartment. I paid for a new place. I also rented the vintage Rolls-Royce that took Mariah to her first audition aged 16 or 17.

Flaming Lips‘ Wayne Coyne has teamed up with Erykah Badu for a re-make of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face originally performed by Roberta Flack. The song will be featured on the album Heady Fwends (to be re-released June 26th). During the making of the video, Wayne Coyne tweeted nude pics of Erykah Badu from the set. At least that’s what many people were reporting. However, the naked woman featured in the video is not Erykah Badu (this time); it’s her younger sister Nayrok Udab.
Those nude photos posted by Wayne (flaming lips) are of the beautiful Nayrok my lil sister and bestee. We do look alike. Video looks cosmic.

Tyler Perry addresses rumors that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of For Better or Worse! He even goes as far as to call the rumors lies, which were started this morning by Radar Online. Here’s what Tyler Perry wants you to know about the situation:
I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of “For Better Or Worse”. NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finished taping the season.
So who’s ready for a brand new celebrity fragrance to try? It seems like that’s the new go-to business expansion for a lot of celebrities. The next person to toss their perfumed ring in the hat is Rihanna. The songstress will bring us Nude this year, which is a follow-up of her perfume that was released last year, Reb’l Fleur. Her stylist, Melissa Forde, posted this set of behind the scenes pics of the Nude photoshoot.
No surprise that there’s a sexual element to the shoot at all. She appears to be wearing little or no makeup at all, which is nice. Hopefully they won’t photoshop it up! You’ll have to wait a while to smell like the R&B princess yourself, however.
