Giving Back Jay-Z Throws A Carnival For College Kids' Scholarships

New York State Of Mind on Thursday night, Jay-Z without his pregnant wife Beyonce, hosted a carnival at the Hudson River Park pier for his Shawn Carter Foundation. But it wasn't all Ferris wheels and funnel cakes — unfortunately Momofuku doesn't make those. The event was called Making Ordinary Extraordinary, and it sought to raise funds for college scholarships.

Jay said two of the worst things in life are a waste of talent and a person who applies him- or herself but is unable to advance due to financial hardship. He hoped this foundation would help ease such burdens and assist people in recognizing their potential.

"Just providing opportunity and seeing what people do with that opportunity. If you want to go further and you want to further your education, just giving someone that extra little push [so] that maybe you'll turn out to be someone special," Jay said.

Jay-Z And Mom
Jay and his mother, Gloria Carter, started the foundation in 2002 to help those facing socioeconomic difficulties further their education at institutions of higher learning.

The foundation started with one student earning a full ride through college and grew to offer 50 scholarships to students in 50 different states annually from 2003 to 2005.

More than 750 students have been awarded scholarships totaling in excess of $1.1 million, and nearly 500 kids have taken part in the foundation's college tours — some even rode the bus with Jay's mom.

"My mom has been running this for a number of years," said Jay. "My mom gets on the bus and takes the kids and takes them to their orientations and she's been riding around the college

Way to give back Jay-Z we salute you!!

Real Housewives Of Atlanta Kandi Bururss Gets A Music Spin-Off Show

Bravo is very generous, first Kim Zolciak was given a new spin-off show and now one of the most boring housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss has got the green light for her new brain child "Kandi Factory", not the sex talk or toys that she has been known to promote as of late.

“The Kandi Factory,” a new special following “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star and multi-platinum songwriter Kandi Burruss.

Quoting a Bravo press release, “Burruss will give two protege's the opportunity to come to Atlanta and learn the fundamentals of pop music success. … Burruss and her team of experts at ‘The Kandi Factory’ will work with the two contestants in order to turn them into music superstars.”

Bravo didn't release any pesky who-what-when-where info, but it did supply this tasty morsel we can all chew on till that magic moment arrives.

“Ever since Burruss turned Kim Zolciak‘s single ‘Tardy for the Party’ into a digital download phenomenon, she has been bombarded by thousands of wannabe artists desperate for her popstar secrets. Burruss believes she can turn anyone with raw talent and drive into ’something hot’ and wants to give aspiring artists a shot at their dream.”
Although she's boring on the show, this is where Kandi shines, with writing credits from groups like TLC "Scrub", we think this is a good look for her.  No word on showing date.

Video: T-Pain Ft. Wiz Khalifa & Lily Allen – ’5 O’Clock’

Autotune king T-Pain the Erik White-directed video for “5 O’Clock,” the Lily Allen-sampled single from his upcoming album rEVOLVEr. 

“The song is basically about me being where I am at a club. I’m just taking too long and Lily wants me to come home right now,” explained T-Pain. “And it happens a lot with me in real life, so why not make a song about it? She doesn’t care where I am or what I’m doing, she just wants me to come home. But she needs me, she needs her hubby.”

Demi Moore & Aston Kutcher Are Splitting... ($290 Million Dollar Divorce)

Does having Two And A Half Men, mean no more wife?  Well according to Star Magazine Instead of celebrating his sixth wedding anniversary (which was on September 24), the new star of Two and A Half Men spent last Friday flirting with scantily-clad women at Fluxx nightclub in San Diego, Star reveals, where he looked nothing like a happily-married man.

"Demi just couldn't take it anymore," an insider says. "She didn't deserve to live that way. It's a painful time for Demi." And if that wasn't enough Demi recently tweeted  to her 4 million fans a hint of distress.

Kutcher is accused of bedding 23-year-old Sara Leal at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego later that night. "Ashton and Demi have separated and the marriage is over," a source close to the pair told Star. "The relationship ended because of Ashton's serial cheating. It's a painful time for Demi. It was definitely a long time coming, but they’re finally done for good.”

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher’s relationship has crumbled, and according to Star magazine the couple will be battling it out in a bitter $290 million divorce. As a result of the cheating, sources reveal that Demi and Ashton had been living separate lives and during Ashton’s recent trip to NYC to visit Demi, it became clear that the marriage was beyond help.

Kutcher 33, and Moore, 48, have not responded to RadarOnline.com's repeated requests for comment. Ashton stars on Two and a Half Men, which airs Mondays at 9/8c on CBS.

Mary J. Blige Covers Paper Magazine + Video Performance at The 7th Annual Night Life Awards

Set to appear as Justice Charlier in Rock of Ages, about the film Blige says, “”All I can say is I had a blast. Tom Cruise was always just so helpful and constantly giving. Just watching him and Catherine Zeta-Jones transform into their characters, it was like, OMG these people are incredible!”

Blige is also gearing up for her role as Nina Simone in the biopic about her life, she confesses, “Nina was different from me in a lot of ways. She was courageous and confident. I’m just growing into that, but she was like that ever since she was a little girl — she was never afraid during a period when there was so much racism. She was always bold. I have a lot to draw from — all the trials and tribulations and battles. But my God, I hope I can do the work and pull it off.”

Janet Jackson Attends Michael Jackson Manslaughter Trial & Shocking Photo Of MJ Dead!

More than two years after Michael Jackson's death, the manslaughter trial of his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, opened in a Los Angeles courtroom Tuesday (September 27).  Murray, who was working on a $150,000 a month retainer, faces four years in prison and the loss of his medical license if found guilty.

In addition to laying out story lines the prosecution and defense teams will follow, the trial quickly provided a shocking opening chapter when prosecutor David Walgren kicked off the proceedings by showing a previously unseen, graphic image of the 50-year-old pop icon's body on a hospital gurney following his death.

According to TMZ, Walgren meticulously set out the people's case against Murray, a cardiologist who was hired by Jackson to be his personal physician in the lead-up to the "Thriller" singer's planned 50-show This Is It comeback attempt.

Walgren told the just-seated jury that Jackson put "misplaced trust" in Murray's medical skills and that the prosecution planned to show that Murray repeatedly acted with gross negligence and incompetence. He pinned the cause of death as an overdose of the powerful surgical anesthetic propofol, which he claimed was administered by Murray, who had made arrangements with a pharmacy to purchase very large quantities of the drug that chronic insomniac Jackson allegedly used to get to sleep.

In addition, Walgren said more than a month before Jackson's death, the doctor made a voice recording on his iPhone in which Jackson, heavily slurring his words, is clearly under the influence of "unknown agents," which he said proved Murray knew the star's state and what the drugs were doing to his client.

"He died rapidly, so instantly he didn't even have time to close his eyes," Chernoff said of Jackson's quick demise from the alleged combination of tranquilizers and propofol taken without Murray's knowledge.

Jackson was described as cold, shivering and rambling in the weeks before his death, but Walgren said the doctor continued to give him propofol and, when Jackson was clearly struggling in his final moments.

Among those attending the first day of the trial were Jackson's father and mother, Joseph and Katherine Jackson, as well as siblings Janet, Jermaine, Randy, Tito and LaToya.
