Method Man Forgets to Pay Taxes


Method Man forgot to pay his taxes but unlike many others who just make up excuses, he’s honest. He says he forgot to pay because he got high. The self-professed pot head had simply forgotten to pay his taxes since 2002 saying “It’s no secret. Everyone knows that. I go on the road and forget everything else. Sure, [the tax department] sent letters to my house saying, ‘We need this money.’ They started sending them in 2002.” Declared $52,503 in arrears on his personal income taxes, the NYPD and the repo man recently showed up to his house and took his 2008 Lincoln Navigator. It was then that the rapper realized that “I have to get all my paperwork together. That means days of going through mail, ’cause I got mail like woah.”

TI Headed for Slammer


TI has finally been sentenced and the judge says that he has to go to jail for a year and a day. An Atlanta federal court sentenced the 28-year old rapper last week on federal weapons charges related to buying machine guns and silencers. The plea deal also requires TI to be subjected to a number of requirements after his prison sentence including “an audit of his finances, drug counseling, DNA testing and random searches of his property, and he will not be able to own firearms.” The rapper must also complete 500 hours of community service after jail time. He has between 30 and 60 days to turn himself in.

Eminem Does Rain Man


It looks like Eminem is paying some homage to the film ‘Rain Man’ in his upcoming music video for his brand new single ‘We Made You’. In the Academy award winning film, Tom Cruise exploits Dustin Hoffman’s autistic genius to win big in Las Vegas. Dressed in gray suits with white ties, Eminem, Dr. Dre and 50 Cent recreate a similar-looking scene in ‘Rain Man’. The video will air on April 7th. I hope the gimmick proves to be a success for him. He needs to make up for all the time that he’s been gone. Eminem won’t get much if he delivers short.

Timbaland Lawsuit


Timbaland is going after his record label Blackground Records claiming that they didn’t say anything when he first decided to make his move from performer to producer and things are now getting ugly. In a lawsuit filed earlier this week in Federal District court, the big shot producer claims he just got too successful as a producer and the record label couldn’t contain its jealousy and hostility for him. Timbaland alleges that Blackground went on a McCarthy-esque search and destroy campaign, contacting various record labels and giving them a million reasons why they shouldn’t hire Timbaland to produce songs. Timbaland wants out of his contract and unspecified damages.

Kanye West is Complex


Kanye West is on the cover of the new issue of Complex magazine. In the accompanying interview, he talks about why he thinks there’s such a fixation on his sexuality. The rapper said “I really think it’s because society tries to dictate the way a guy is supposed to dress and the way a guy is supposed to act, and I refuse to conform. A lot of these dudes would never be accused of being gay just because they all look exactly alike. If people could just realize the amount of mundaneness and followers that lack creativity… I think people’s mentality is like, Only gay people are that creative...

Britney Spears a wreck prior to Circus tour

Now it’s out. After a successful opening of Britney Spears’ “Circus” tour in New Orleans sources near to the pop star are now willing to reveal how the 27-year old singer struggled with her confidence a week before the actual tour. Sources said a team of relaxation therapists had to be called to look after Britney Spears before she could even perform. Britney Spears’ mis-confidence is understandable considering this is her first major concert after her emotional and career collapse a year or so ago. She was not sure how people would react to her performance so she was freaking out about almost everything.

There was even a time that the people behind her were not even sure she could perform on the stage...

Jennifer Hudson’s first tour jitters


The “American Idol” winner is excited about her first upcoming tour. Jennifer Hudson said this about touring for the first time: “I’m excited to get out and meet the people and sing for the people. I always love to perform live. The only other tour I’ve been part of is the ‘American Idol’ tour, so this’ll be more intimate and personal.” What does Jennifer Hudson find so intimate and personal about singing in front of thousands of people, sharing living quarters and transportation with loads of other people, getting little sleep and other some such things. Or, no, wait, that’s not how they roll up there. Jennifer Hudson will probably have her own car, her own suite, her own “assistants”. In that case it will indeed prove a most fulfilling and self-discovering experience.

Wino May Lose $7 Million


Blake Fielder Civil doesn’t want Amy Winehouse back but he does want her money. According to Wino’s dad, Mitch, Blake is trying to squeeze out almost $7 million out of Wino. Mitch complains that “Amy’s a musical talent, but since she’s been with Blake she’s barely been able to perform on stage, let alone make a record.” He is afraid that Wino might return to the cracked out romance saying that his daughter is “guilty of loving [Blake].” Mitch further explains saying “I’m not saying she is going back to him, she just wants to talk. But I want her to get divorced. I want Blake and his family out of our lives… She nearly ended up dead thanks to him.”

50 Cent Gives Diddy a Compliment


50 Cent recently had an interview in the new issue of King magazine where he gave Diddy a backhanded compliment. The rapper said “Puffy has the best model for staying relevant, because [he does it] without a song. He’s been able to maintain an interest and stay in a space to executive produce television and film projects, and stay relevant to hip-hop culture. What was the last record that made you feel like, ‘Oh, my God, Puffy is on fire’? You don’t need it. That’s what makes his business model exciting to me. There are only three of us to look at: Jay, [me] and Puff. [We have] three totally different situations. We’ve just been a part of hip-hop culture. That’s the similarity. I still think they’ll be relevant...
