Birdman Gets Sued

Fool a concert promoter once, shame on you. Allegedly fool a concert promoter thrice, you’re getting sued. The guy who runs Cash Money records, Birdman, is being sued for allegedly taking $275,000 to put on a Lil Wayne concert in Miami and then backing out of the deal several times over. Since there’s still no concert, the promoter wants his money back. The best part of the suit though is that Birdman is accused of backing out of one of the shows because the weather was supposedly too cold. Do consider that this was in Miami. It never gets cold in Miami unless there’s a hurricane.

No London Appearances for Jay-Z

The next time any of you start saying a little prayer, would you mind saying one for Jay-Z too? The times have really gotten hard over in London and the rap mogul can’t find any clubs that are willing to pay his host fee of $45,000. The London Paper says that Jay has already lowered his fee to $15,000 but there are still no takers. It really is a hard knock life. And yet they still pay for Amy Winehouse to appear for them even though it’s pretty much a lost cause. If they had saved whatever they paid her then maybe Jay would have gotten some gigs.

    Ne-Yo and Marilyn Manson

    Talk about the odd couple. Music maestro Ne-Yo has revealed some interesting stuff at the LA premiere of the movie ‘The Secret Life of Bess’ recently. The music man is apparently set to work with rocker Marilyn Manson. Ne-Yo said of the collaboration that “It’s going to be interesting. I have no idea what we’re going to do, what it’s going to sound like. Just Ne-Yo and Marilyn Manson in the same room—we’re going to figure something out.” For some reason, imagining those two in the same room together made the words ebony and ivory pop up in my head, even milk and coffee. I can’t wait to hear what they come up with though.

    Battle of the Queens – Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin

    Whether Beyonce meant to do it or not, she initiated an epic battle of the divas by dubbing Tina Turner as the queen during the Grammy Awards in February which set Aretha Franklin into an indignant frenzy. Aretha called Beyonce’s comment a “cheap shot at controversy.” Tina remained silent at the time but USA Today got a response recently where she said “She’s the queen of soul, and I’m the queen of rock ‘n’ roll. There were so many kings and queens there that night. Her ego must be so big to think she was the only one. That’s how queens are!” Aretha was quick to retaliate proving that today’s celebrity feuds don’t have anything on the certified divas. Aretha said “I never figured her to resort to tacky press just to sell a few tickets...

    Lil Kim Gets Sued

    Lil Kim must be so sick of having to pay for lawyers. The female rapper has once again been sued, this time for $2.5 million for not delivering on a contract. The suit was filed by a recording company called Brookland Media recently. The suit claims that the company struck a deal with Lil Kim this year and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on recordings, equipment and advance payments when the rapper and her people tried to change the contract and refused to continue recording unless Brookland agreed. Brookland wants the court to declare the contract valid and bar Lil Kim from recording for another company.

    Rihanna’s New Sound

    The international superstar that is Rihanna is gearing up to extend her reign as queen of the charts by releasing her fourth album in 2009. Though she says the album is going in a more techno rock direction, it will have a couple of eclectic tracks. One of the three that she is writing completely on her own is going to be more punk rock. Of course, it’s going to be process through a pop lens. Just think of ‘Disturbia’ and not ‘Hate That I Love You’. Overall, Rihanna wants her next album to be edgier than ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’. It is also being said that she is in the process of synthesizing a new hotter look for herself.

    Lil Wayne is Rich

    While most people are getting more and more desperate with the fall of economy, Lil Wayne has ice sculptures with money in them. To celebrate the Lil Wayne’s 26th birthday, rapper Birdman threw him a huge party in Miami hotspot Mansion nightclub. They really went all out for the event. There was a large Cash Money Records ice sculpture in the room which held 30 bottles of Cristal. Other ice sculptures had $100 bills frozen inside. Lil Wayne also got one heck of a gift from Birdman – a Luis Vuitton briefcase which was filled with a million dollars in cash. I hope they both have good accountants. I wonder if anyone stayed around and waited for the sculptures to melt.
