Timbaland Does Karaoke


Timbaland got married on a private island in Aruba last weekend but don’t think that the rapper and mega producer went all out with the fancy stuff. Spies at the wedding site says that the music mogul’s wedding, which the hotel called the code name of ‘Heaven on Earth’, actually featured open mic karaoke and $50,000 worth of flowers. If you compare that to Mariah’s weddings, it’s practically peanuts. Oprah, Madonna, Missy Elliott, Beyonce, Jay-Z and Prince were said to be invited but there’s no official word on just who actually showed. What, Justin Timberlake wasn’t invited? I was kind of imagining him as the wedding singer.

Snoop Dogg was on Big Boy’s Neighborhood on LA’s Power 106 on Wednesday where he said that he recently recorded tracks for Dr. Dre’s highly anticipated and long-delayed new album ‘Detox’. Snoop said “That record is real, it’s coming. You know me, I was starting to doubt it myself and then I went up in there and he played so much music for me it knocked my head off. I see what he got them waiting for, it’s on and poppin. He got records, he got heat.” Snoop has also confirmed that the 10 years in the making project was finished and the Dre was already selecting tracks for the final product.

Jill Scott Takes a Walk


It has recently been confirmed that soul diva Jill Scott is engaged to drummer Lil Jon Roberts. The singer made the announcement on June 20th while celebrating her Carnegie Hall debut. She got the sold out crowd cheering at the news. Jill was just divorced last year from ex-hubby Lyzel Williams. Here’s to hoping that this marriage turns out better. In a recent interview, Jill said “I’d get married because I want to share all of this with someone. I just mean who I am and the blessings that I have, I want to share it. That’s why I would get married again.”

Kanye for Soulja Boy


Kanye West has recently gone to his blog to publicly announce that he’s on the side of the marginally talented and highly annoying Soulja Boy. Kanye wrote “Soulja boy is fresh ass hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip hop is supposed to be. He came from the hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound and a new dance with one song. He had all of America rapping this summer. If that ain’t Hip Hop then what is?” I’ll tell you why Kanye was in great support of Soulja Boy – it’s because they’re both just way too into themselves.

Promising Katy Perry


It looks like things are getting serious between Katy Perry and her boyfriend Travis McCoy. The Gym Class Heroes lead singer has reportedly given her a promise ring. Travis recently opened up in an interview saying “We’re going to spend the whole summer together. She’s going to be on Warped Tour with us, she’s going to be performing. It’s going to be a good time.” He was asked what he like about Katy and he said “She’s super hot, for one. But when I first heard the song, I was like this is going to be a smash. The next thing you know it’s No. 1 on iTunes.” He likes her for her number 1 then? Travis has bought her a diamond ring already by just as a promise ring that she wears on her middle finger. He even adds that he has one too.
