Kanye West Talks Porn


Kanye West has taken to his blog to address an issue with a report that appeared on AVN.com that pointed to an interview with the rapper he supposedly gave to King Magazine in which he allegedly mentioned a willingness to do a bi-sexual porn flick. I’ll spare you the headache and just let you read part of what he posted. He wrote “I CAN’T BELIEVE THE AVN WOULD POST FIRST PEOPLE BELIEVED THE TWITTER/STEVEN COLBERT THING, ROLLING STONE EVEN PRINTED IT!!!! NOW SOMEBODY HAS BEEN HACKING INTO MY MYSPACE AND SOMEBODY’S ACTUALLY HACKED INTO MY PERSONAL GMAIL ACCOUNT AND HAS BEEN EMAILING PEOPLE FROM IT…”

The Curious Case of Akon


Akon has been keeping his real age in hopes to appeal to his fans for a longer amount of time. In a recent interview, the singer said “All it’s going to do is depress me. I don’t want to know I’m getting older. Then I’ll start to think about getting checkups and insurance. I don’t want that.” There’s still debate on his actual age as different reports claimed that he’s anywhere from 25 to 35 years old. In an interview back in 2006, Akon said he was 25. Now he claims he’s 31 according to his birth certificate showing he was born on April 16, 1977. Wikipedia claims from several different sources that he was actually born in 1973. When he gets asked about his age, he gives them whatever comes to mind. He said “I feel like I’m 21 right now. And I’ll be 21 for the next 10 years.”

50 Cents says ‘Nas’ career is over

According to the always arrogant rapper 50 Cents his rival ‘Nas’ is no longer a chart competitor and feels that the veteran singer’s career is all but over. He feels that ‘Nas’ is no longer a threat and if he is to be believed then his rivals’ career is “finished”.

Speaking to the XXL magazine he says, “Nas is cold as ice. Nas is the block of ice that sunk the Titanic… I didn’t even hear his record. I didn’t even hear what you talking about… I really don’t want to talk about Nas. I think he’s at one of those points to where his career’s finished, to be honest.”

I think 50 Cents is starting to feel the heat from other singers and therefore he is trying to target some of his lower radar rivals in a bid to make his presence felt...

Chris Cornell’s long-awaited Timbaland produced album, Scream


Chris Cornell’s long-awaited Timbaland produced album, Scream, is reaching stores on March 10. Chris has been keeping busy rehearsing with his new band and talking with his fans on his blog to gear up for the release. The front man hasn’t picked up an electric guitar since the break-up of his legendary group Soundgarden back in the late 90’s, but according to his latest blog entry on ChrisCornell.com, he’s thinking of busting them out for his upcoming tour:

“Hi people. Here is an open question. Since I got my guitars back I have been considering playing guitar live again. Who thinks I should pick it up again? I play guitar all day every day as I am always working on new songs. Let me know if you think I should hit it live. The king is dead. God save the king.”

T.I. Thanks God

TI was as the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball in DC where he gave thanks in a weird but truthful way. He said “I want to thank God for somehow … I know he perfect. So I’mma thank him for everything. I’mma thank him for making me drop out of school. I’mma thank him for making me run the streets. I’mma thank him for making me sell crack. I’mma thank him for making me have shoot-outs...

Lil Wayne Cancels Show


They say that third time’s the charm but such is not the case for Lil Wayne fans in upstate New York. For the third time, the rapper has cancelled his Rochester, New York show. He was supposed to take the stage on Wednesday. Back in October of last year, he said he didn’t want to do the gig at Rochester’s Blue Cross arena because of a so-called inferior sound system. Then he just didn’t show up for the re-scheduled show in December. Lil Wayne did not release a statement as to explain why he didn’t show up for the most recent re-scheduled show. I’m pretty sure he’s never going to get another gig offer in Rochester after this.

Queen Latifah for BET


Every good event seems to be happening in Washington, DC lately, with lots of celebrities attending. The BET Honors recently went down at the Warner Theater in Washington, DC. Queen Latifah was one of the attendees. The 38-year old musician and actress looked amazing in a floor-sweeping black gown despite having to rub something out of her eyes while walking the red carpet. The BET Honors were hosted by Gabrielle Union and featured performances by Queen Latifah, Ne-Yo and Joss Stone (who knew she still works?), among others. The show will premiere on BET on Monday, February 9 at 9 PM.

Snoop Dogg Wants the UK


Snoop Dogg was banned from entering the UK for being arrested in the US so much and for getting into a little altercation with authorities in London’s Heathrow airport. The rapper is so desperate for permission to enter the UK on a visa that he’s been reaching out to A-list Brits to vouch for him. He said “I’ve called David Beckham, Sir Paul McCartney, hell, I want to get the whole of the Beatles to help me get back in.” He also said that for artistry’s sake, he needs to visit the capital saying “London was one of the first places I came to when I first made it. The people are so warm and friendly and I need to be there for my creativity.”

Death Row Sells Cheap


Last week, the assets of Death Row records were sold for a disappointing $18 million. The assets included masters of recording by Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg and other rap pioneers. In a way, I bet former Death Row exec Suge Knight must be happy about the bargain sale. He lost the rights to all the assets to bankruptcy in 2006 after one of his former partners, Lydia Harris, sued and won a $107 million case against him. Once all the lawyers, the IRS and other administrators are paid, the money left over won’t be enough to divide among any of the company’s unsecured creditors. The auction winner is a Canadian-based company called Wide Awake Holdings.

I do not know my actual age – Akon


Singer Akon has made a startling claim that despite having a birth certificate he does not know is actual age and would rather now not hunt to find the truth. There are different documents and quite a few show his age to be between 25 to 35.

Just a couple of years ago somewhere in 2006 the singer claimed his age to be just 25. But according to latest reports Akon says if the birth certificate that he now has with is shows he was born on April 16, 1977, which would make him 31.

My clear advice to Akon is that if his mother hasn’t added late to her name then he might call her up and ask her if she can remember when he was born if not the date then surely she might remember the year.

Means in some way he rigged the school records to get admission into school and later on college, I have be...
