So.....I have a question for all you ladies! I just had an argument with the hubby regarding our boy, Trey Songz. Here is how the argument went:
Hubby: You know your boy, Trey Songz look like somebody.
Then he googles this and I fell the hell out!

Alicia Keys is finally coming clean about the whole Swizz Beats situation. It might not be exactly what we want to hear but at least she's addressing it! It's about time! With Mashonda sending out tweet letters and ish, someone needed to address the situation right? We've only heard from one side, so let's hear what Alicia had to say about it below via Uptown Magazine:
"I felt I had to speak out about things and clear my name," she says. "But as time went on I realized it was a waste of energy. I think it's better to just keep things moving. People will take [your business] and run with it in whichever direction they choose."
Well, she didn't address it fully but at least she had something to say about it right? Full interview with Alicia keys in Uptown Magazine will be released December 09/January 10! I know I'm coppin that one!

A few days ago, I placed a video snippet of DJ Khaled's "Fed Up" video on the site. I started to get comments on the clip via my Facebook and felt I was onto something. Next thing I know, when I went to check out the video for myself, it was set to private and I could no longer preview the clip! I'm guessing the person who put it on YouTube had an issue with everyone checking out the footage. Not really sure. Anywho, I found the behind the scenes footage of the video on Real Talk NY and decided to post it up for those who couldn't view the video snippet the day before. Check it out below:
I'm wondering if the same sucka who placed their video to private has a problem with me putting up the behind the scenes footage! I'm just saying!

Anyone who checks out this site knows I'm a Tahiry Jose fan all day! I'm still upset with the whole Joe Budden break up but I will get over it. I'm loving the way Tahiry handled herself during a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid on Shade 45. Tahiry talks about rumors of her and 50 Cent dating, the internet, the Joe Budden break up and more! Check out the interview below:
And if you think Tahiry doesn't love the single life...you've got another thing coming! Check out some more photos of Tahiry below:
This is the second photo I've found of Tahiry and Trey hugged up in a photo. Let the rumors begin yall!
I know there is something brewing in a Slaughterhouse studio right now! It's just how Joey operates!

I'm hearing (via Miss Info) that Nivea has indeed had her baby today!! Yay! It's about time! I think Nivea had the longest pregnancy ever! That baby just did not want to come out! But he did come out today and I'm hearing Nivea named him Neil. Not sure if I'm feeling that name but hey! Whatever works! She likes it, I love it!

If you didn't know where Lil Mo has been, she was last seen tearing the house down of the "80's Babies 2" Thanksgiving Eve concert! I'm hearing that concert was the place to be! Not only did Lil Mo perform but so did SWV:
Queen Pen and Jagged Edge performed also:
My girl, Queen Pen, must be living the life cuz she sure looks healthy! Ain't nothing wrong with that! Get em girl!! Pow!
Even Junior Mafia was there and did their thing! The show was presented by DJ Self:
And hosted by the lovely Free of Power 105:
Lil Mo's new album, Tattoos and Roses (the rebellion against pain) is expected to be released in early 2010. Can't wait for that real singing to hit my ears!!! REAL TALK!!! Check out this throw back from Lil Mo below:

I am totally feeling what Monica has to say when it comes to family. Sometimes people in general don't understand that my kids come before any of this hip hop stuff! If my kids ain't right....I'm not attending your event, I'm not interviewing your artist! Straight up! I can't operate knowing that my kids are not straight and because of that I have lost out on some great opportunities to interview some of the top celebrities but I can live with that! There will be other times. We can either reschedule or you don't have to deal with me. My kids will eventually get older and my job will get easier but for now I'm struggling and I'm good with that!
Peep what Monica had to say below:

Awhile back in one of Joe Budden TV clips, there happened to be an episode where Tahiry got punched in the face by a guy who disrespected her at a strip club. Where the hell was I? Why didn't anyone write about that? That's some serious accusations!! And I'm curious to find out if Joe Budden did anything to homeboy who assaulted his girl? At least she was his girl back when it happened.
I truly had no idea about this incident but DJ Vlad got down to business and asked Tahiry about the situation. Check out what Tahiry had to say about it below:
I love Tahiry!! Gangsta!!

Fantasia has been going through the ringer lately with all the accusations of her having a relationship with a married man. In an article (not sure with who), Fantasia denied those claims. Anywho, Fantasia recently did a photoshoot with Upscale Magazine and looks terrific! I haven't seen her look halfway decent in quite some time! Just my opinion. Check out some more hot shots below:
That blue dress is the business!!!!
By the way, does she have an album coming out or something? The girl's got a helluva voice on her! I miss her music! Check out 2 of my favorite joints from Fantasia below:
The first one is "Free Yourself"
The second one is "Truth Is":
I miss AJ & Free on 106 & Park!!!!

I spotted these pics over on Real Talk NY and thought to myself when is enough, enough? I have no qualms about Wayne tatting up every part of his body but I just thought in general, when is it enough? Hell, if Wayne likes it, I love it! No hate over here! I'm just wondering what makes him tick? What makes him do the things he does? Why is he such an extremist? I would love to ask him those questions in person. One day! I promise you I will have that chat with Wayne!! You watch!
Check out another snapshot of Wayne, his new tat and his Daddy below:

Here's a little sneak preview into DJ Khaled's new video and song, "Fed Up". I'm guessing they put out Drake's version first since he's the hottest thing out right now and would generate more hits? *shrugs shoulders* Either way, I'm siked about it! The video kind of reminds me of Biggie and Diddy's joint, Hypnotize. Check it out for yourselves below:

A few days ago I brought you a video snippet of Snoop Dogg's video "I Wanna Rock". I also told you that I couldn't wait for the full length version of the video since it reminded me of Rob Base's "It Takes Two". Well, I have finally found the full length version and am premiering it here! Check it out below:
What are your thoughts? Me? I likes!

For the last two nights, Young Jeezy and his not for profit organization, Street Dreamz, took the time out to share and encourage kids in their dreams! Last night Jeezy went door to door passing out boxes of turkeys and all the fixings to go with it so that those who wouldn't normally have, would have a good Thanksgiving dinner. Jeezy even picked up the kids from the "Street Dreamz" organization and took them to the Hawks game! From walking in with them, buying them all kinds of snacks and even kicking it with them in the stands. Jeezy made sure the kids had a great time and left them with some parting words of wisdom before the night was over.
Some people talk about giving back and others just give back! I'm all for supporting the good deeds that these celebrities do because more times than not, those good deeds go unrecognized! It's apparently not that interesting to hear about someone doing something good for someone else! I beg to differ! I think Jeezy did a great thing for those kids and I hope he continues to do so! Peep the footage below of Jeezy and the "Street Dreamz Kids":

Here is some footage that I haven't released of Erick Sermon talking about his clothing line that was supposed to come out. He also tells us how Redman was supposed to have a reality show wayyy before Flavor Flav! Now that's news to me! Who would've known? Erick also tells us he has a new documentary coming next year focusing on how Hip Hop evolved. Check out how it all goes down below:
Happy Turkey Day folks! Stay blessed!

Caught this video on Necole Bitchie and thought it was such a great idea for an artist to dedicate a song and video to his fans! Showing appreciation to the ones who make you who you are! His P.R. people are on their job!! The fans will love it and just watching it gave me a stronger appreciation for the person they call Trey Songz! Peep his video for "LOL :-)" below:

Busta has landed a deal with Venom Energy Drinks and is coming out with his own! Now, not for nothing, I like Busta and his music but hasn't he put on some weight? Doesn't the public usually associate energy drinks with folks who work out? I'm just saying. Here is a shot of the drink below:
Now, according to some research I conducted, I found this article below on Busta Rhymes. Please remember these are not my words but was found on a gossip website called Gossip Jacker. Peep the Busta story below:
Not like it is a surprise but Busta Rhymes is having major financial issues. He is grasping for straws right now trying to hold it together. He is living on his and his moms credit cards, and doing any show he can get now as long as the crowd (or lack off) has a pulse.
His cc got declined at a 5 star hotel some months back when he was checking in. A member of his hanger on's (to what I don't know) had to use their card.
He has about 6-7+ kids and there are countless numbers of women he has cried, begged, and threatened to have abortions from him which is his method of birth control. He doesn't like to use condoms despite the fact that he has herpes which he doesn't disclose up front or at all. Anytime he is accused of passing on an std he flips it on them and will accuse them of giving him something.
From a VERY realiable source there is a sex tape floating around with him and a well known tranny. He is the top. Heard from many, many first hand sources that he is dl/bi/gay. He acts like he hates women, doesn't like them wearing weaves, and passes on std's. They usually all look like men/butch, have short cuts, i.e Laurie Ann, his first baby moms. As long as his ass has been in industry have you ever really seen him in a relationship...no.
He is very abusive to people, lies, and is just all around nasty. He burns people, literally, and figuratively. That is why his movie career never took off. No one is checking for him anymore and he is washed up, bitter, and angry. It really is just bad karma catching up to him.
Whoa! That was a mouthful! I don't believe it but I thought it was interesting enough to post. Check out Busta and his Venom energy drink below:
Will you be one of the folks to try the drink? Would love to hear about it!!

Man! Timbaland and Drake have released a part 2 snippet from their new video together called "Say Something". They are really promoting this video heavy for the 8th of December. I'm guessing this video is going to be a big deal. Check out video snippet part 2 below:
The song is crazy!!! I can't wait!

So it's official! Allen Iverson has officially retired from basketball! Here is his retirement statement below:
NOV. 25, 2009
TO ALL OF MY FANS:
I would like to announce my plans to retire from the National Basketball Association. I always thought that when I left the game, it would be because I couldn’t help my team the way that I was accustomed to. However, that is not the case.
I still have tremendous love for the game, the desire to play, and a whole lot left in my tank. I feel strongly that I can still compete at the highest level.
Stepping away from the game will allow me to spend quality time with my wife and kids. This is a reward that far exceeds anything that I’ve ever achieved on the basketball court. I have prayed for this day and I see it as my greatest gift.
I want to thank the people of Reebok International Ltd., for always allowing me to be me and for supporting me my whole career through all the ups and downs. I have enjoyed 13 wonderful seasons in the NBA, and I am grateful.
I want to first acknowledge my fans everywhere, who have been with me throughout my entire career. Without you, there would be no me. You should all know that I appreciate your support from the bottom of my heart. Thank you!
To Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Isiah Thomas, Charles Barkley and Larry Bird, you guys gave me the vision to play the game that will be forever in my heart.
To my Mom, who encouraged and inspired me to play every day, and to all of my family and friends who stood by me from the beginning. Thank you!
To my high school coach, Michael Bailey, Coach John Thompson at Georgetown University, Coach Larry Brown and to all of my other coaches, teammates, administrators, owners and staff who’ve been a part of my career, Thank you as well!
I’d like to give a special thanks to the people of Memphis. I never played a home game for your beloved Grizzlies, but I want you to know how much I appreciate the opportunity given me by a great owner in Michael Heisley, and the support of the city. I wish the Memphis Grizzlies’ organization all of the success that the game has to offer.
And finally, to the city of Philadelphia: I have wonderful memories of my days in a Sixers’ uniform. To Philly fans, thank you. Your voice will always be music to my ears.
God Bless all of you,
This is truly a sad day for basketball fans everywhere! Allen Iverson was no joke on that court! REAL TALK!

With the holidays just around the corner, there are lots of gifts to get for the ones you love! Queen Latifah is hoping that you add her fragrance, "Queen", to your Christmas list or at least purchase it for a loved one. The perfume (by itself) ranges from $49 to $59 dollars. If you are looking to get the whole box set which includes body lotion, body butter and the perfume....you are looking at a price range of about $135. Not too bad in price but since we are in a recession, I'll settle for just the perfume....THANK YOU!
That smile on Queen Latifah says "I'm gettin paid this holiday season!"

I was always feeling this song! I thought it was just soo sexy. Who knew that Timbaland and Drake were working on a video for it? Can't wait until the full length version of the video comes out. I'm hatin on these video snippets, although the marketing strategy behind it is bananas!! I'll be waiting and watching out for it!!
Peep the snippet for "Say Something" below:
And for those of you who didn't know, check out the album cover for Young Money's "We Are Young Money" which will be on sale on December 15th!!! Go and cop it!

Something definitely had me asking myself if Kim had some work done on her face but I couldn't pinpoint it. The change even caught the eye of some gossip magazines such as Star Magazine! I knew it wasn't just me! But, as always, Kim Kardashian is denying those rumors as well. Check out what she had to say about the nose job rumors below:
“Star Magazine is saying I had plastic surgery to make my nose and lips smaller! Why would someone want smaller lips?! LOL, in the first photo I am about 15 lbs heavier than the second photo! Your face always looks different when you lose weight (the pics above aren’t the ones from the mag), plus with the contouring on my nose it gives the illusion of a thinner nose… it’s no secret I contour my nose now to make the bump go away…I guess it’s a compliment to my makeup artist that he does such a good job contouring my nose that it appears smaller.”
My question to you is.....Do you believe Kim's denials? Or does she need more people?

My girl, D. Woods, formerly of Danity Kane and the only one in the group worth watching, has ventured out on her own and has a new video out called "Legalize Me". Now, in watching the video, I think it's safe to say that "Legalizing" means having sex? I could be wrong so I'll let you guys be the judge. Check out "Legalize Me" below:
What are your thoughts? Was I right? By the way, D. Woods' solo debut album, “My Favorite Color” will be released on April 27, 2010, on her own label, Woodgrane Music in joint venture with Bonzi Records/Fontana (UMD), but before its release, she will be giving back to her fans with the release of “The Gray Area Experience” which features new and exclusive material released individually through iTunes. The first single will be “Legalize Me” which will be released on December 8, 2009.

Yes, yes yall! My girl, Keyshia Cole, is about 7 months pregnant and I couldn't be happier for her! Keyshia Cole has had her fair share of men who have done her wrong (Young Jeezy) but I'm hearing Boobie Gibson is doing her right! It's about damn time and she deserves her happiness.
According to Necole Bitchie, Keyshia Cole was seen this past Sunday at Bethany Baptist Church giving away turkeys and groceries to families in need! Get it Keysh! And since there is no new music for me to provide you with, here's a throw back joint (and one of my personal favorites) from Keyshia Cole below:
Another photo of Keyshia and Boobie below:

And check out a cameo appearance by Lance Gross in part 2 below:
Stay busy homie!! By the way, I have a quick question for the fellas and for the ladies who love ladies. Are women with excessive tattoos attractive? I need to know. Or is there a limit to one's madness? Hit me up!
Posted by GossipViv Billings at 7:49 PM
First she hit you with "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", now she's hitting you with "Change Gonna Come" courtesy of the BATHROOM! Brandy is killing the singing acapella scene boy! I'm wondering how these other young ladies in the R&B world sound singing in their bathroom? Maybe people should start building studios in the bathroom cuz obviously that's where the magic happens! No pun intended! ;-) Check out Brandy's vocals below:
She sounds damn good if you ask me!

I told you guys awhile ago that Kelis was back in the lab and doing her thing! I told you guys this already so don't act as if you didn't know! ;-) Kelis has a new joint off of her highly anticipated album (which should be coming soon) called "Acapella". Kelis is back with a new sound, new look and even a new label! Check out "Acapella" below:
What do you think of the new joint? Can you dig it? I'm going to need to hear this a few more times, with a shot of vodka and some glow sticks to really get used to the vibe of this song! This joint is screaming "Webster Hall" on a Friday night! LOL.
Kelis has also released a message to her fans! Check it out below:
