...or at least his mother wants it. What do you know! Snoop has a secret son. His mother, Laurie Holmond, went to Star Magazine to put Snoop on blast for not recognizing the lovechild on his new hit E! reality show. Julian Corrie Broadus reveals he hasn't seen his father for five years and now he wants to play a big part in Snoop's life, and appear on his TV show.

He tells Star magazine, "I don't want to be an actor, I want to be a baseball player. But I want to be on the show to get to know my family."

Laurie and Snoop were boos before he wed Shante, but Julian is the product of a brief affair after the two married. He initially paid child support and visited but stopped until an order was given in the summer of this year, Laurie claims he hasn't visited since.

That's a damn shame the momma went to a tabloid and put her child out there like that...


Some dude at Club Ultra threw ice at Trey Songz...and as the infamous words of Smokey, "You got knocked the fuck out!" Word is dude was beaten and got his jewels and even his pants snatched, leaving him outside in his boxer bloodied.

LOL @his nose dive like Superman! But after the fight commenced he returned to the stage and finished his set...

Brandy learned today that she will not be charged in the December 2006 crash that left a woman dead. Spokesman for the L.A. City Attorney's Office, Nick Velasquez, said there is "insufficient evidence" for a jury to find the 28-year-old actress-singer guilty of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter beyond a reasonable doubt. The California Highway Patrol originally recommended that she be charged.

These charges have been hanging over her head for over a year now so I am sure she is quite relieved. Hopefully she'll release some new music soon and get her career back on track.


Will Smith is the king of summer blockbusters, think Independence Day, Men in Black, Bad Boys... This time he takes on a superhero role in the new film Hancock. Will plays hard-living superhero who has fallen out of favor with the public and enters into a questionable relationship with the wife (Charlize Theron) of the public relations professional (Jason Bateman) who's trying to repair his image.

This is supposed to be Nas' cover for his upcoming album titled Nigger...I just can't imagine this on the shelves.

Is this really necessary? I don't care for censorship and if Nas wants to come out with an album called Monkey-Doodle Butt so be it, I just don't think it is realistic to name an album that and expect it to fly off the shelves.

How do you report on that... it will forever be "the N-word" not "Nigger."


I can't even lie, that was not the business. She clearly tried her best and Diana isn't the best singer in the world but that wasn't a great vocal by any means. She started flat and it just carried through...It wasn't horrible, but it surely wasn't spectacular.

She looked good though in that silver...and the band was rolling!

I've been on the road most of today but apparently a lot has gone on with Raz B and his brother Ricardo "Ricky Romance" Thornton and the insanity surrounding the Chester Molester allegations against Chris Stokes... Ricky went on the radio to discuss the situation with Sacramento's 103.5 The Bomb...

Ricky also freaked when he hadn't heard from lil' brother Raz B and began saying that he was missing after that sad video was released retracting the statements. However Ricky is standing by the allegations suggesting that this needs to go to the District Attorney. In a brief interview with he gives further details on the allegations saying that it began when Raz was about 11 years old.

Later, Raz B posted the following bulletin on MySpace saying that he wasn't missing at all...he later posted a bulletin saying that he was not threatened by Bloods [LOL..right, why the hell would a gang defend an alleged gutter-butt trollop like Chris St(r)okes anyway?!].

At this point I need some authority to step in and either validate or discount the allegations because they are indeed serious. I've always thought something wasn't right at TUG, and even though Chris plans to sue, there are clearly secrets that he has been trying to keep. It's getting nuts ya' usual, I'll keep ya posted.

If you haven't seen B. Scott's response, it is a must! Nasty Gutter-Butt Trollop!

Rev. Run and Justine Simmons were blessed with a daughter this past September and will make her debut on Run's House when the show returns January 17th.

Miley Justine Simmons was adopted at a month-old by the Simmons exactly one year after their devastating loss of their daughter Victoria.
"She's brought so much energy to the house," dad Reverend Run tells Us Weekly. "My wife cried the other day when Miley busted out laughing."

"The more you mourn, the more you want to mourn. I would have landed in depression," she tells Us.

"I wanted a girl really bad, and I knew I wasn't going to try again," she says. Justine has two other boys with Run and is the step-mom to a boy and two girls.

"It's heaven," Run tells Us, "to have this baby come into our house at this time, at Christmas." [SOURCE]

She's a cutie! I am so happy for them!


So XXL came up with an ingenious list of reasons why we all think Bow Wow is a whiney baby and don't like him...He clearly has the spoiled brat syndrome going on, did you see the bafoonery on Road to Sterling Silver Platinum?

I couldn't have come up with a better list myself!

8 You seem like an ingrate cause you’re always shitting on the dude that put you on.

11 You made an album with a nigga from B2K.

12 Lil girls love you. No, they really love you.

John Legend just sneaks up on you and drops videos, this is the video for his newest single "Show Me," from the Once Again album. Which is a great album by the way, if you don't have it, you need it. Very musical!

Love the video, love videos that have meaning...


Word on the curb is that New York [Tiffany Pollard] is now engaged to Tailor Made after he proposed at the taping of the I Love New York 2 reunion show, which airs Jan. 6th...

How coincidental that this "news" leaks right before the aring of the reunion show. Call me when she makes it to the alter!


Rihanna has teamed up with H&M to promote AIDS awareness with a new line...

The collection, dubbed "Fashion Against AIDS," is also supported by well-known designers, musicians and artists, including Timbaland, Jade Jagger, The Cardigans and Ziggy Marley. It will be available in stores in February.

The collection comprises T-shirts, tank tops and hooded sweaters featuring specially designed prints. H&M developed the campaign together with nonprofit group Designers Against AIDS.


Raz B posted the above video retracting his statements and apologizing for the allegation that Chris St(r)okes molested him...

Omarion also came out and defended Chris with the following statement:
"I want to be on the record as saying that "Raz B" Thorton and Ricardo
Thorton are lying regarding Chris Stokes. Chris is a father figure to
myself, and many others in the industry. He's guided us, helped raised us
and is nothing more than an inspiration and someone I respect to and look
up to. I have spent countless hours, days, weeks and months with the man
since the age of 5 and have never once seen him behave inappropriately.
He's married to my aunt and I know this man very well. I stand behind him
with no question whatsoever," said Omarion.

"I have grown up around Chris and this is crazy to me. These people
have damaged me, and my reputation and I won't stand silent and will do all
within my means to speak the truth about this matter," said Omarion.

Do you believe it? Or did Chris throw some cash to zip their traps?! I agree with B. Scott, he tells it like no other!

Remy Ma and Universal Records have been named in a civil suit by the victim of Remy Ma alleged shooting debacle for $10 million...Remy Ma is due to stand trail next year on charges of gang assault and witness tampering stemming from an August incident in which prosecutors say the rapper ordered a group of men to attack Barnes-Joseph's boyfriend.

Why the label? Because they "encouraged the rapper to engage in violent behavior as part of her image."

This comes after the judge just denied her travel request to Europe for a 5-date tour for $40,000, "which she very much needs."


...and I almost forgot CiCi had an album out. It took forever for this single That's Right to drop, but it another dance banger. Teaming up with Lil' Jon works well for her. It was filmed this summer, check out a behind the scenes look at the video here. Oh and look quick, you'll catch Monica's cameo at the beginning.

Chris Stokes isn't going out with out a fight...He released the following statement:
“The accusations that Demario “Raz B” Thorton and Ricardo Thorton have made are vehemently false and hold no merit. I have recently stopped financially supporting both individuals along with assisting them with their criminal and legal matters which leads me to believe they are resentful and looking to benefit financially from this. My family is my first priority and the reason why I have been so supportive of them. In bringing these false claims, they have not only slandered me, they have also put me in a position to ensure that the truth is known and I will take all legal routes to protect myself, my family and my four children," said Chris Stokes, CEO of The Ultimate Group.

"It’s also quite ironic that these statements were made only 2 weeks after they were denied admittance by a venue for an event I hosted in Beverly Hills ," added Stokes.
Funny thing is, this isn't the first time that people have called out Chris for being a sick nut. There have been rumblings for years that he's not liked in the industry, that he's a shady ass dude, and even pedophile behavior. Check out a little history on the B2K/Stoke love affair.

All I'm saying is...this is suspect:

For all of those that thought Chris Stokes was a suspect ass just might be right! Raz-B, former member of B2K, and his brother have just dropped a jewel of hot-mess-ness this holiday season with accusations that Chris Stokes pulled some Chester Molester foolery, among other things.

Now I always thought Chris Stokes wasn't right, but this is just beyond me...I just love how Raz-B talks about the Lord, speaking in tongues at the tender age of 2 *DEAD* and cussin' all in one sentence! Read Ricky Romance's letter about the situation here.

Somethings just shouldn't happen, like getting arrested in the airport for attempting to check in with a fully loaded gun...You can't through with mouthwash, let alone a gun...

Joc, born Jasiel Robinson, was popped at the Cleveland Hopkins Airport airport early Sunday morning was stopped during the routine airport security check when employees discovered a semiautomatic handgun and ammunition in his bag. He told authorities he didn't know it was in there.

He is currently free on a $50,000 bond and his arraignment has been scheduled for Wednesday in Cleveland Municipal Court.

I just think some things could be avoided...*SMH*

The internet is buzzing that Jay Z and Beyonce secretly married while on his birthday vacay in Paris. The pair were spotted with matching tattoos of the Roman numeral "IV" to mean "forever" on their ring fingers...As you can see before she jet-setted off to the City of Romance to meet her beau, there was no tattoo, however while in Milan promoting Armani's Diamonds we caught a glimpse of it. Jay Z also has the same tattoo on his ring finger...

No confirmations either way, if they did that was pretty slick and well...about damn time!

Amidst rampant rumors of being pregnant [for Young Dro supposedly] and numerous absences from her role in the musical The Color Purple, her people has released the following statement:
"Fantasia is not pregnant and the Internet rumors are entirely untrue," Barrino's rep confirms to Us.

"It is true that she has missed some performances because she has gotten sick from time to time over the nine months, but doing eight shows a week is a lot so she missed a few."
So there you go...someone who isn't pregnant! It seems to be in the water these days.

TMZ has confirmed that a judge entered a bench warrant for singer R. Kelly -- because he did not show for a court hearing today in Chicago.

We're told Kelly's tour bus was delayed in Utah, so he was a no show. The judge in his child pornography case entered the warrant but won't enforce it just yet. But if R. Kelly doesn't show up tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM, the judge will tell the fuzz to arrest his butt.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Cook County prosecutors pressed the judge, noting he had already shown considerable leeway in letting Kelly travel outside Illinois. "This is just an abuse of the process. It's disrespectful of your honor," said Assistant State's Attorney Shauna Bolicker.

Kelly's lawyer said singer was "detained because of some snow." The judge said a trial date will be set on Thursday.


Just the other day I was having a conversation about the amateur night at The Apollo which some how led to Charise, the YouTube star famous for belting out "And I am Telling You" and "Listen."

This website, OC Weekly, posted a fictitious yet friggin' hilarious interview with Lil Wayne and Zac Efron [one of the chirren from High School Musical] and took the world by storm...blowing up blogs and my email box.

Funny thing is, reading it, if you know New Orleans or Lil' Wayne, he sure doesn't talk like this:
“Zac and me was both in San Francisco a few months ago for a comic book convention or something, and we met at an afterparty at some bar,” he says, pausing to break down pieces of pungent pot to roll into a joint. “To get away from these girls that was chasing him, he ducked into the bathroom and I followed him in there. I was like, ‘What’s crackin’, my brother from another mother?’”
LMAO @ comic book convention...Seriously? The genius that wrote this bafoonery gets a hand clap [and a Rick James wit it] for his creativity.

It gets better...or maybe worse!
“What’s up, my nigga?” Efron says, giving Wayne a pound, a hug, and then, to my astonishment, a full-on kiss, reminiscent of the one Wayne famously gave his surrogate father Baby last year. (Obviously, Efron is going to have to work harder to squelch rumors surrounding his sexual orientation.)
And the best of it all...
“Hell, no! This is how I live! I get up in the morning, get my dick sucked four times, drink a Molson’s, and then hang out with Zac. What, do you want me to go to Hawaii for a vacation? You got a job, but this is my vacation right here.”

Adds Efron, “Word!”
Ha ha ha...

While everyone was running behind Britney Spears and her antics, they forgot to keep an eye on her little sister Jamie-Lynn who just confirmed that she is pregnant at just 16. Hot damn, who thought 2007 could get anymore foolish?

Now I was a teenage mother so I am not going to talk greasy about her, but damn somethings, like say a gig on cable television and a sister that is the perfect example of what not to do, you'd think you'd be able to avoid ish like this.

Word is mother Spears was pissy...but now supportive. Real talk, she must feel extra poo-poo-esque right now.

Oh and to make you laugh, Lynn Spear's parenting book has been put on hold indefinitely...You think?
