Posted by on Feb 5, 2014 in Breaking News, Celebrity Beef, Celebrity Events, Celebrity Fights, Celebrity Mugshots, Celebrity News, Publicity Stunt | 6 comments

For the past two weeks everyone has been going crazy and looking for the sign up sheet to go face to face with George Zimmerman in the boxing ring. Reportedly George Zimmerman wanted to personally fight Kanye West for whatever reason, and Kanye hadn’t responded as he shouldn’t. Nonetheless, other rappers who have been very vocal about wanting to jump in the ring with Zimmerman is rapper The Game. Recently he called into TMZ and told them that he had contacted celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman about jumping in the ring. Feldman responded by saying there were still a few others he had to consider, and it turns out that DMX was picked out of 15,000 applicants. DMX told TMZ:

 

I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up

Apparently Zimmerman has been training extremely hard, but we all know DMX’s past so he should be able to keep his word. The location and date of the fight will be announced next week at a press conference on February 12th.

What are your thoughts on this boxing match?

ESPN Fires Back; Nicki Minaj That’s Your Forehead, Not Photoshop…

I must admit that when I saw the cover of ESPN magazine featuring Kobe Bryant and Nicki Minaj, I thought something was off with Nicki Minaj’s photo, but all around it was a cute cover. Nicki Minaj obviously felt the same way, and addressed the issue via twitter with the following comment:

I love my personal un-retouched photos where my forehead doesn’t mysteriously grow in length.

Although the singer was appreciative of the opportunity from ESPN, she tweeted what most people were thinking. To prove her point she shared a few personal photos from behind the scenes of the shoot where she looks #flawless. Not sure why ESPN selected that particular picture for the cover, but they also wanted us to know they didn’t photoshop or retouch Nicki Minaj’s forehead:

While we occasionally make minor visual and cosmetic adjustments to cover images, we do not

Jim Brown Pulls Kobe Bryant’s Black Card

Posted by on Dec 15, 2013 in Celebrity Beef, Celebrity Drama, Celebrity Fights, Celebrity News, Celebrity Sports | Comments Off

During an interview on The Arsenio Hall ShowNFL legend Jim Brown, in a very polite yet controversial statement, questions Kobe Bryant’s “blackness”; basically implying that Kobe Bryant grew up culturally different overseas than many of the black American athletes. Although I hate when other people challenge how one should act as a black person, as if there is only one way to be black, I kind of feel like Jim Brown may have a little point. Oh!

He’s somewhat confused about our culture. Because he was brought up in another country…If I had to invite people to that [black athlete] summit all over,” Brown said, referring to a summit held in the early 70s regarding Muhammed Ali’s refusal to fight in the Vietnam War, “there’d be some athletes I wouldn’t call. He’d be one of them {…via USA Today}

I think Jim Brown is certainly wrong for saying Kobe Bryant is culturally confused, however

K Michelle Blames Blogs For Her Antics & Image In The Media

Posted by on Dec 11, 2013 in Celebrity Beef, Celebrity Drama, Celebrity Interviews, TV Shows | 1 comment

I obviously feel some kind of way about this K Michelle’s scene in Love & Hip Hop where she blames the blogs for her negative image in the media. Sadly I feel personally slighted considering I was one of THE first bloggers to interview her in a positive light when she was trying to break-through and get her name out in the media (you can check out the throwback K Michelle interview here).

The K Michelle I talked to over the phone was humble, down to earth, and honest to a fault, but when Love & Hip-Hop ATL came out, so did another side of K Michelle. The majority of her negativity in the media comes from K Michelle shaking tables, throwing silverware, throwing candle holders with hot wax, starting beefs, and tweeting insults to her celebrity peers.

These blogs are absolutely pathetic to me. Social media has always been a big enemy of mine, and the things that they make up, is absolutely crazy and really hurtful.

But even with all of the on screen antics, these “pathetic blogs” have been pushing her music, and promoting the mess out of her album. Not the mainstream media, which explains why K Michelle didn’t receive a GRAMMY nomination,

Damon Dash & Daughter Ava Reunite Again With Jay-Z Backstage

A few weeks back Damon Dash and Jay-Z waved the white flag and called a truce, after 10 long years of beefing over business.  Now that they’re on the road to reconciliation, we may see a lot more of them together, and that makes me happy. Damoan Dash joins Jay-Z backstage at his concert in LA at the Staples Center, and Dash brought along his daughter Ava. Remember the beef has been ten years in the making, so little Ava, isn’t so little anymore.

So much time loss, but I’m happy they’re on better terms…More pics when you continue:

Rumor Control: Are Eminem & Ex-Wife Kim Mathers Getting Back Together?

I feel like it’s an act of God that rapper Eminem and his ex-wife Kim Mathers were even together in the first place.  If you’ve heard any of his angry rap songs in which he uses his ex as his subject matters, you probably feel the same way.  Yesterday, rumors of Eminem and Kim getting back together were all over the internet.  Kim‘s mother Kathy told RadarOnline that they were getting along better than they had in years and suggested that they might reconcile.
