Drake Scraps Tour to Be With Sick Mom

The best woman Drake has ever known remains his mom.  The up-and-coming rapper has canceled plans to tour Europe this summer so that he can be with his ailing mom while she recovers from surgery, he said in a statement Thursday.

He had tweeted last night: "Back at my moms house...please include her in your prayers tonight as tmrw she faces a true challenge."

Despite my best hopes, it is apparent that my mother will need surgery earlier than anticipated," Drake said today. 

So that scares me a lot," he said. "She's been the most supportive person I've ever had in my life—the only person that loves me unconditionally, really. I know a lot of people love me and I love a lot of people. But to love somebody unconditionally is different." 
The 23-year-old hip-hop star still plans to tour throughout his home country of Canada beginning July 16.

Does Michael Jackson 13 year old Son Have The Same Skin Diease??

Maybe this will squash the "those are not Michael Jackson kids controversy".  Could Michael Jackson's son, Prince Michael I, have the same skin condition as his late father? Jackson's kids were photographed on the beach during a recent vacation in Hawaii and 13-year-old Prince Michael I revealed white patches of skin under his arms -- a sign that he could be suffering from vitiligo, the condition that causes the skin to lose pigment.
Jackson claimed vitiligo, not bleaching, was what caused his skin to turn from black to white.   Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Blanket were treated to a day out at the seaside in Hawaii by their grandmother Katherine.

Kim Kardashian Gets Waxed

 Kim Kardashian was immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds on 42nd Street in New York City on Thursday – but mom Kris Jenner wishes her daughter’s wax doppelganger had a little more junk in the trunk.

“The butt could be a little bigger,” Kris told Access Hollywood and Kim at the unveiling of the figure in New York. “Your butt is bigger than this!”

Kris might think Kim’s wax figure needs a bigger Ass, but Kim was overjoyed with her blow up doll/wax figure look alike.

“I’m very happy,” she told Access while admiring her wax self.  However, Kris did enjoy one in particular of the wax figure’s assets.  She doesn’t talk back,” Kris joked about wax Kim.

Weave It Alone....Niaomi Campbell Hair Raising Situation

Supermodels get stared at all the time, but Naomi Campbell probably wasn't expecting to attract this kind of attention. All that glue and sew in Weaves/extensions have left Naomi with crumbs around the side of her head (basically bald).  We know she loses her cool at times and now we also know her hair has left the building also.

During a photoshoot for designer Dennis Basso in New York City on Monday, the model inadvertently revealed a bald area on the side of her head, which kicked off loads of buzz about the potential cause of possible Naomi's hair woes. Everyone has a flaw and with her climbing number this "Bald problem" just shot to the top of the list.  She really needs to hit up HRS a.s.a.p. (HAIR REPLACEMENT SYSTEMS) yikes!!

Kaye West 6 Figure Jewelry Price Tag

When I was watching the show it was hard to see all  this jewelry with that mass of smoke produced on the stage, when Kayne West was performing his new song "Power" on top of  a Volcano at the BET Awards this past Sunday.  It appears he wasn't the only thing on the stage that caught the fans eyes it was that Gia-amorous ass "throwback Egyptian" gold jewelry look.

Jacob & Co. created a custom-made link chain and charm depicting Egyptian god Horus, as well as a four-finger pyramid ring, for Mr. West’s comeback performance. Both are made of 24k yellow gold.

According to Kanye’s blog, Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in the ancient Egyptian religion. Horus served many functions in the Egyptian pantheon, most notably being god of the sky, god of war, and god of protection.

Kanye’s monstrous chain and ring came with a larger-than-life price tag. Both items retail for a whopping $300,000, a spokesperson for Jacob & Co.

Ughhhh HATED IT...Total Pimp Jewelry!!

It's Official Sandra Bullock Divorce Is Final....Read Divorce Decree

Finally Sandra Bullock divorce is final and she can go on with life with her new African American adopted baby without that cheating adopted baby daddy/ex-husband Jessie James.  The documents, which were filed in Texas with the Travis County District Court this past Monday, indicate that "IT IS ORDERED AND DECREED that B.A.S., Petitioner (Bullock), and J.J.G., Respondent (James), are divorced and that the marriage between them is dissolved," thus ending the Hollywood union just months after James' numerous affairs surfaced in the tabloids.

Even though the pair began the adoption process for Louis Bardot as a couple, the papers indicate that "there is no child of the marriage," meaning Bullock is acknowledged as Bardot's only parent, while James retains custody of his kids he entered into the marriage with, Sunny, Jesse Jr., and Chandler.

The papers indicate that court costs would be charged to the party who incurred them, reflecting what looks like a clean break between the Oscar-winning actress and the West Coast Choppers owner.

Inside Lauryn Hill....Breaks Her Silence

After being absent off the music scene for 8 years with no new music and tons of speculations and rumors about her mental state, Lauryn Hill finally breaks her silence. Hill discuss the state of music, her 5 children and new music.  It doesn't take much for a group of 30-somethings to get nostalgic about L-boogie. Her solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, on at a bar, and it takes the crowd right back to college days or high-school summers.  NPR scored a one on one interview with Lauryn Hill and asked some of the questions that all her fans have been wondering:

Why did you stop singing music:

"There were a number of different reasons," she says. "But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it. In fact, as musicians and artists, it's important we have an environment — and I guess when I say environment, I really mean the [music] industry, that really nurtures these gifts. Oftentimes, the machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds that have a lot to do with the health and well-being of society, or at least some aspect of society. And it's important that people be given the time that they need to go through, to grow, so that the consciousness level of the general public is properly affected. Oftentimes, I think people are forced to make decisions prematurely. And then that sound radiates."

About The Music

"I'm trying to open up my range and really sing more," she says. "With The Fugees initially, and even with Miseducation, it was very hip-hop — always a singing over beats. I don't think people have really heard me sing out. So if I do record again, perhaps it will have an expanded context. Where people can hear a bit more."

The editor of this article noted when he left this interview he was overwhelmed A) because he met Lauryn Hill and got the interview.  B) Because now Lauryn Hill is doing fine. 
"I don't know if you know this, but I have five children," she says. "The youngest is 2 now, so she's old enough that I can leave her for a period of time and know she's going to be OK.  I'm starting to get excited again. Believe it or not, I think what people are attracted to about me, if anything, is my passion. People got exposed to my passion through music and song first.


Video: T.I. Flirts with Chelsea Handler....Chelsea Lately

Being a big fan of Chelsea Lately, I really love her when she interviews rappers especially T.I.  Last year before he went to prison he set down with Chelsea. Tip was back in the hot seat for the third time and more hilarity ensued. He spoke about the dirty care package he received from Chelsea while behind bars, their special “relationship,” Tiny’s reaction, and his latest projects. We can’t wait for his next visit.

Video: Chris Brown Breaks Down During Michael Jackson Tribute...BET Awards

This is the water cooler talk of the day. The  emotionally charged performance that everyone will be talking about.  Chris Brown was back on his feet as a surprise guestat the BET 2010 Awards.  While pperforming a dance tribute to Michael Jackson, Chris Brown became overcome with emotion and wasn't able to make it through “Man in the Mirror,” breaking down in tears onstage.

Breezy received a standing ovation from the audience.  This raw emotion was sincere and left the crowd thinking in this moment he's reflecting on the "Man In His Mirrior".  I hope now those who haven't forgave him will.

BET Awards '10

Nicki Minaj orange wig ..Is she going to prom??

Diddy & His Cheerleaders aka Dirty Money
The BET Awards 2010 was a night of tributes. Chris Brown nailed the tribute to Michael Jackson. The tribute to Prince was on point. And El Debarge has still got it after all these years.

Probably in an effort to make up for the highly-criticized Michael Jackson tribute from the 2009 Awards, BET pretty much did an homage to every person, every event and every thing they could think of. But with that said, I had a blast watching the awards and going back in time. For more pics videos and a full list of winners (Click Now)
