Oh man!!! I’m excited about this!!! 90s R&B staple group Boyz II Men have taken up residency in Las Vegas for a new show at The Mirage, according to Yahoo! News. Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman will start performing at the Terry Factor Theatre at The Mirage starting on March 1st of this year. If you don’t already know, bass singer Michael McCary had to leave the group back in 2003 because of health issues.
Organizers say the show will feature the band’s biggest hits, including the 1991 smash “Motownphilly,” as well as some surprises.
Boyz II Men has won four Grammys and claims the title of most successful male R&B group in history.
So what do you do when an internationally known TV show approaches you to offer you millions of dollars to shoot a few months of episodes? You think about how this will affect you in the streets. According to Nicki Minaj, that is. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Nicki admitted to being hesitant about taking a seat on the judges panel of American Idol because she didn’t want lose her thug credit.
As an artist signed to Cash Money Records — home to her mentor Lil Wayne, Drake, Jay Sean and DJ Khaled and a label that has sold more than 78 million albums since its founding in 1991 — she points to “a judgmental culture in hip-hop,” where “sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”
Maybe this was a run through for the big day but I’m thinking no. E! Online is reporting that Kanye West was pulled over by the cops in West Hollywood for speeding through the streets in Kim Kardashian‘s Mercedes Benz. The cops also cited him for having tinted windows.
But Kanye must have kept his cool because ultimately the cops just let him off with a warning. Kanye‘s gonna have to watch that speeding! With a new baby on the way, he just may need to practice responsible parent driving.
What a scary moment this must have been! The New York Post is reporting that model Naomi Campbell was injured fairly seriously during a mugging in the streets of Paris. Apparently Naomi was trying to hail a cab when a group of muggers knocked her down and robbed her, causing her to tear a ligament in her leg in the process. Ouch!!
One source said, “It was terrifying. Naomi believes the assailant had been watching her, casing her out, and waited for a moment to strike when she was alone.
“Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up,” the source said. It is not known what the thugs stole from her, but it’s believed they were targeting expensive jewelry she may have been wearing.
