Trina is a little pissed off that us bloggers were writing about her possibly being pregnant. Now, if anyone read my story about the issue, they would know I clearly said I didn't know if the rumor was true or not. I also said that the photo provided by MediaTakeOut.com was not sufficient enough evidence for me to start congratulating anyone yet. There was however, a photo that made me say Hmmmm? But that didn't last long and last I checked, Trina being pregnant by anyone didn't make or break me in anyway.
So if Trina is pissed, it's with MediaTakeOut.com because they had an article on their site "allegedly" confirming Trina's pregnancy......NOT ME!!! I like to say my site is a very reputable site and if I post something that is not true I'll say "I have no idea if this is true or not" or I'll correct the post. Simple and plain.
I really like Trina and have went out to the stores to buy her albums in the past. No bootlegs over here! So I say all that to say this, I'm a little disappointed with the way Trina decided to address the rumors via Twitter.

Mindless Behavior is a group a lot of my little cousins are in love with. 4 young boys singing their little hearts out has always been the key to success. Just ask Immature, B2K and ABC. However, I noticed a little something more with this new group. They seem to have a bit more swag to be such a young group. I can't seem to put my finger on exactly what it is that they have, but they've got it. Although what that "IT" is, I have no idea.
Their newest visual titled "Mrs. Right" includes a feature from another hot young star, Diggy Simmons. The video was directed by Brett Ratner and will feature L.L. Cool J as their school teacher and Mike Epps as the school janitor. I really enjoyed the video, so watch it for yourselves below:

Kim Zolciak decided to debut her newborn son (Kroy Jagger Biermann) to "Life & Style" magazine. I'm guessing the magazine was willing to pay the price Kim Zolciak was requesting for the exclusive photos. I will say Little KJ is absolutely adorable.
Little KJ came into the world on May 31st and joins sisters Brielle who's 13 and Ariana who's 9. Although Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann are not married yet, Kim says she would like to have another baby before she walks down the aisle!!!
Check out Kim's commentary as well as another shot of the baby below:

According to MediaTakeOut.com, Trina is pregnant with Kenyon Martin's baby. Now, I'm not so sure if this rumor is true because judging by the photo above, Trina does not look big or swollen and the shot could've captured a light breeze passing by making Trina's shirt look out of place. However, I did find a photo (also from MediaTakeOut.com) that may make me reconsider my judgement.

You can now catch Alicia Keys over at the Madame Tussauds wax museum as she has been remade as a wax figure!! Although I'm not so sure if the wax figure completely resembles Alicia Keys, I think they did a good job nonetheless. Besides, it seems as if Alicia Keys is happy with the finished product. And at the end of the day, that's all that matters.

Last night, out in Brooklyn, Pete Rock and Smif N Wessun celebrated their album release. The album is titled "Monumental" and is out in stores now. However, during the album release party, things took a turn for the worst when NYPD showed up at the venue telling folks to leave and get out.
I just want to put it out there that in no way was there any fights, beefs or controversy taking place at the venue. People were enjoying themselves while listening to some classic Hip Hop music. So many are wondering why the NYPD showed up in the first place?
To make a long story short, NYPD started wilding out on the crowd and were even filmed beating up a woman outside of the venue!! Footage of everything that went down is below:

There are always those people who are going to make a big change in this entertainment industry and I think I may have found one. Recently, I had the chance to meet a new friend that is about to make her mark in the industry. A lot of you may not know who she is, but you will want to in the near future.
This dynamic woman I speak of is Ms. Angela aka Angie LaLa. She recently started her own webseries which discusses different everyday life topics. The show also features guests who come on the show and make it more entertaining by giving their opinion on the topic. Here's how the interview went down below:

On last night's episode of "Basketball Wives", Shaunie O'neal and Jennifer Williams wanted to get Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada together to see if they can somehow reach a compromise about Evelyn's t-shirts titled "You Are A Non-Muthaf*ckin Factor". Both parties (Tami & Evelyn) agreed to meet with each other to see what they can come up with.
I, personally thought the two were going to bump heads again, but to my surprise, they actually came to a compromise with each other that I thought was fair. Tami even joked that she will forget about everything if they all whooped on Meeka Claxton's ass which I thought was hilarious!!
You can watch the full episode of "Basketball Wives" and see how everything went down below:

This right here is an interview for those asses!!! As always, Star & Buc Wild never disappoint me with their interviews. Just recently, Star and White Trash Helene sat down and interviewed Olivia (of Love & Hip Hop) and asked her about everything under the sun including the rumors about Olivia sleeping with 50 Cent, her beefs with Somaya Reece, Emily B and Keyshia Cole, what's next from "Love & Hip Hop" and soo much more!
Star then proceeds to tell Rich Dollaz that if he smashed Somaya Reece, there would most likely be no more problems between her and Olivia!! The interview is complete comedy, but worth a listen. Find out how everything goes down by clicking on the "Read More" button below:

While everyone was tweeting and blogging about last night's BET Awards, I was more caught up with the drama over on Vh1!!! On last night's finale of "Mob Wives", Drita D'Avanzo and Karen Gravano went head to head and blow to blow!!
If you missed it, let me give you a brief rundown. Drita wanted to clear the air with the ladies about her relationship and how she got hooked up with her husband Lee. For those of you who are not aware, Lee was Karen Gravano's boyfriend back in the day. However, Karen seems to think that Drita was scheming behind her back trying to get with Lee when she was with him. So with all of that said, Drita wanted to let Karen know that that was definitely not the situation.
So........let me show you guys what went down during that conversation below:

I spotted this tweet over at RhymesWithSnitch.com and thought it was rather interesting. It also made me wonder who Cassie was referring to? I think it's safe to say that we all know Cassie has been creeping with Diddy for some time now so she could very well be talking about him. However, I'm curious to find out who you think she's talking about.
Feel free to leave your comments!!

I have been coming across some really great artists who will kill the music scene once given the chance to do so. And this new artist, Hugo Da Boss has what it takes to go far in this industry.
This talented rapper who plays the piano and sings too is ready to live up to it. The music that the Son of Harlem is doing now for his debut CD is called “Swag Music”, but if you think that Hugo Da Boss is just about rap music you would be seriously mistaken. His “Swag Music” is about flavor and musical instrumentation, plus some strong musical intelligence.

I just received Coco's new song in my email inbox titled "Shoe Freak". In the new joint, Coco goes on a shoe name brand dropping spree. Coco names shoe brands from Christian Louboutins, Fendi, Gucci, Ferragamo, Jimmy Choo, Yves Saint Larent, Giuseppi and many more!!
To be quite honest, I'm not sure if this is a song or just a snippet towards the bigger picture like Coco coming out maybe with her own shoeline? Wouldn't that be dope?! She could name them "Coco's", but that's my idea so if she does come out with something like this know that you heard it here first!!

It's that time of week again. Shoeicide Wednesdays!! However, this week, I'm going to be doing something a little bit different this time. The shoe I'm going to feature is definitely budget friendly and is the CapeCoral shoe from Aldo retailing for about $80 online.
I, personally, got a pair of the same exact shoes and only paid $30, but I cannot reveal where I get my shoes from because it's a really big secret type of thing and the person will kill me if I told! Anywho, you can compare the Aldo shoe to my own personal pair and tell me if you can tell the difference between the two below:

I just received an exclusive interview from TT Torrez and Meeka Claxton in my email inbox. Normally, when I see the name Meeka Claxton, I delete or just ignore, but something told me to check out the interview and see what it was all about. Not to mention that the title of the interview caught my attention. The title of the email read: “Basketball Wives” Star Meeka Claxton Reveals to TT Torrez That Tami Roman Did NOT Punch Her In The Face!
I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised with the way the interview turned out. TT Torrez was a little harsh with Meeka (but that didn't bother me because I felt the same way TT Torrez felt), however, Meeka seemed to take it all in stride and answered every question.
