New Beyoncé video “Upgrade U”

Posted by J under Beyonce, Videos

Second video in one day. Is this BeyoncéWorld.net? I’m starting to feel like it is. Anyway, this video is MUCH hotter than “Beautiful Liar”. As much as she gets on my nerves, there will always be a spot in my heart for B because she is just so damn HOT. LMAO @ that baby alligator. That was a slap in the face to PETA. And y’all are gonna notice something in this video that will make you scream “THEY AREN’T TOGETHER ANYMORE!!” but then they’ll flip it on you, LMFAO. I’m still thinking they are done and this was their last laugh, though. LOL @ that Rapunzel twist braid she has in the car. How many Barbaros had to die for that one?

Foxy: I was on the can, yo!

Posted by J under Foxy Brown, Oh Sh*t

Foxy Brown says she is not the aggressor but the victim in her recent beauty supply run-in in Pembroke Pines, Fla. The rapper, who was violating terms of her probation by leaving the state of New York without permission, alleges she was using the bathroom at Queen Beauty Supply when the owner forcibly removed her, half naked, and dragged her out of the store.

“I was exposed from the waist down on the toilet,” Foxy said in a press conference at her local church in Brooklyn. “The only crime I’m guilty of is being a young black woman.”

The owner says Foxy was applying hair glue in the bathroom and was asked to leave because the store was closing. She then allegedly threw the glue at the man and spit on him, before police attempted to arrest her and used a “takedown maneuver” to get control of Brown-a tactic she considers to be police brutality.

Home girl is due in Manhattan court later this week for leaving the state regardless and could face jail time for violating her probation.

Foxy has said some outrageous stuff in the past, so I don’t know exactly which side to believe in this.

OK, the first time someone heard this song was 12 minutes ago and now the video’s already out. It’s kind of creeping me out because you can’t tell which one is which! I guess that was the point. They could have done a little more with the video. Like make out, maybe? I’m just sayin’…

Michelle Williams has joined the cast in the Chicago production of “The Color Purple”. Williams will play Shug Avery.

We previously reported that Williams and Fantasia would perform together, but Fantasia’s role as Celie is in the Broadway production of the play. Thanks to DJ for the correction.

Too bad… I wanted to hear about that sloppy lip lock. LMAO!

TMZ has learned Sean “P. Diddy” Combs is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department for allegedly attacking a man at a Hollywood Oscar party.

Gerard Rechnitzer was at a post-Oscar bash Sunday night with his fiancee at Teddy’s at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. At around 2 AM Monday morning, the 27 year-old Rechnitzer was on his way to the parking lot when he made a pit stop in the bathroom. When he walked out, he notice his fiancee was surrounded by six men, including Combs. We’re told the 5′7″, 140 lb. Rechnitzer watched as Combs chat up his girl for about five minutes, and then asked his fiancee to leave with him.

At that point, Combs allegedly told the woman he was having a party and invited her to come. Rechnitzer persisted and asked his fiancee again to leave with him. Combs then allegedly socked Rechnitzer in the jaw.

Rechnitzer, a real estate broker, called 911. The LAPD came out and took a report, but Combs had left before the cops arrived. An ambulance came but Rechnitzer declined treatment.

We’re told the LAPD contacted Rechnitzer yesterday and as many at five witnesses observed the incident. (TMZ)

Sean and after parties just don’t mix. First he screamed at Naomi Campbell and Terrence Howard after the Grammys, and now he’s punching dudes out? What the hell. LOL @ him chatting up some random woman. No more famous jump-offs, Diddy?

As some of you may know, Timbaland and Scott Storch are beefing. I found out about this a few days ago but I ignored it until I listened to Scott’s Diss to Timbaland “You Ain’t Built Like That”. Timbaland’s diss track “Give it to Me” Ft. Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake has a new video out now. People have been talking about this track for months because on the track Nelly is apparently dissing Fergie, Justin is dissing Prince and Janet Jackson and Timbaland is dissing Scott Storch. Make sure to click that youtube video above to watch it.

NOW listen to Scott Storch’s diss track called You Ain’t Built Like That This shit is a mess! He talks about how Timbaland has someone else doing his beats but is taking all of the credit and how he is gay. This download is a must. I was cracking up at some of the stuff that was said on here. This is gonna be a wreck because a lot of people are mad at Timbaland and are saying he sold out on them, one of them being Ginuwine who in an article said he felt hurt that Timbaland had abandoned him.

edit: I can’t find the whole song online anywhere but if anyone knows where it is e-mail us the link/mp3

Ray J boning Lil’ Kim now?

Posted by J under Brandy, D-List, Dating, Kim Kardashian

TMZ.com is reporting that Ray J has moved on from Whitney Houston (who herself is rumored to be getting back together with her recently-jailed ex Bobby Brown) straight to Lil’ Kim. Lawd, Kim looks like Chucky with a weave, doesn’t she? Pretty soon she’s gonna look like that damn Cat Lady. Ray J is using this whole Kim Kardashian sex tape thing as a spring board to get his career started again, I guess. He told Vibe a few months ago that he spent all of his Moesha money on tacky jewelry, and with Brandy fighting off new lawsuits with the toll of every hour, I’m guessing the funds are running a little low these days. I’m pretty damn sick of seeing him in 2007 and this Lil’ Kim mess is taking me straight back to 2001 when they did “Wait A Minute” together and Ray J was infamously dubbed “Brandy’s lil’ brother.”

Jennifer Holliday at the pre-Oscar show

Posted by J under D-List, LOL, Trainwrecks

Sweet Mary. This is just… LMFAO!! Her faces, OMG. Mamacita. STOP. And don’t any of you dare come in the comments talking about “this is real performing” because the singing was not even up to par either. I’m falling out because she is butchering that shit on that rooftop and no one’s really paying attention.

“When my mom told me Jennifer Holliday was on a roof at the Oscars, I said ‘OMG, did she jump??’” -someone on ONTD

Why are they famous?: Lumidee

Posted by J under Why Are They Famous?

Now, as you can probably guess by our last “Why are they famous?” feature (Tila Tequila), I will be throwing around the word “famous” lightly because I could probably get into most of the parties these people are attending, but you get my drift. My next pick is Ms. “Uh Oh” Lumidee. Most of y’all probably remember this chick for her annoying ass song that was inexplicably a hit in the summer of 2003. I don’t think there’s been anyone on the musical landscape in recent years with less talent than this one and yes I’m including Cassie in this assessment. She SOMEHOW got a second chance to put out another album and prove all of us wrong and what does she do? Gets Tony Sunshine (the Kelly Rowland of Terror Squad) to sing a cover of Patrick Swayze while she stands around posing.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-UDDkmsxm0]

I shit you not - he’s actually singing “She’s Like The Wind”. And what is Lumidee doing? Lookin’ hot! You may remember back when “Uh Oh” came out they were hiding her face in the video because she was chunky. Well she’s making up for lost time! I think she “raps” about three lines in this whole video and the rest of the time she does semi-turns while Tony belts.

Apparently this song is really big in New York. If anyone out there is reading from New York, y’all need to get it together. This is inexcusable.

Murphy a sore loser?

Posted by Erin T. under Awards Shows, On the DL

Is Eddie Murphy a sore loser? After failing to nab the award for Best Supporting Actor to Little Miss Sunshine’s Alan Arkin, Murphy tried to brush off the loss, telling Us, “It’s fine. It happens. It’s OK.”

But clearly it wasn’t. Shortly thereafter Murphy, 45, and girlfriend Tracey Edmonds left the show in a huff and didn’t return. Thanks to the early exit, the actor didn’t see any of his Dreamgirls castmates perform and missed out on costar Jennifer Hudson’s win for Best Supporting Actress.

US Magazine

I can’t even hate on this. I’d be pretty upset too if I was nominated for an Oscar and lost. Being an Oscar nominee is a great thing but winning is even better. After a few days i’m sure he will realize that for the rest of his career he will be known as “Oscar Nominee Eddie Murphy”. Let him cry a bit! I’d be crying too! This is such a rough year for him though. He loses the Oscar, he lost his boo Johnny Gill and now he has to shove himself back in the closet with Tracey Edmonds. Y’all know after Eddie lost that Oscar she was probably batting her eyes at Forest Whitaker but you know his wife Keisha ( who looks like she just took the S.A.T.! How old is she? 16? ) was NOT having that!

Whew, this song takes me back! I miss Heavy D. I can honestly say I wouldn’t mind to see him make a comeback. He still produces, which is cool - still stackin’ that paper, Hev! For a big dude he was gettin’ it on the dance routines in this video.

Well, I’ll be damned. These ’90s rappers are just coming back like they were never gone and shit. I know technically speaking both of them have had albums out this side of the new millenium but really though. It seems like it’s been forever, huh? Erin and I were falling out at Eve just COMING IN on that Kelly Rowland song like “And what?” This song leaves a little to be desired, but I’m thinking maybe this is not the finalized version. Here I Am is supposed to be coming out this summer.

“Fire” Eve

I don’t know about this Ja Rule song. If Ashanti were on the hook instead of Yummy Bingham, I would think this came out in 1999. I really think he needs to update his software if he wants to try and get back in the game. The Mirror is due in-stores June 26.
