Memphitz Arrested For Bringing A Gun To The Airport

News broke earlier that Toya’s husband Memphitz was arrested at an Atlanta airport for reportedly carrying a gun inside his belongings. Once his bags passed through security and the gun was spotted the police were summoned immediately. He did have a license to carry the gun but needless to say it in no way was getting on the plane with him.

I’m not quite sure what he was thinking but we will be following the story. #notagoodlook

Beyonce Set To Perform At Michael Jackson: The Tribute Concert

If you love Beyonce then you should know how much of a die-hard Michael Jackson fan she is. Her idol and who she calls the person that influenced her to want to do music, Beyonce will be performing via satellite at the Michael Jackson tribute concert in October. The news broke today via Facebook and although she wanted to be able to perform in person, her schedule just conflicted.

The word out there now is that her performance is something never seen before. We all remember how she shut it down at the VMA’s so lets see if it’s somewhat in comparison to that. The concert was put together by Michael’s brothers and his mother Katherine. Other celebs set to hit the stage are Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson, Leona Lewis and plenty more.

Foolery: FOX News Bashes Chris Brown…Again (Video)

“Everyone’s favorite news channel (insert sarcasm)” FOX News made Chris Brown their punching bag once again for a Twitter comment.  During Halftime Report, Andy Levy issued an “apology” to Chris for a comment he made on the social networking site.  Read the text below, courtesy of Necole Bitchie:

“I want to talk about something that happened on Tuesday night. About 8 o’clock here on the east coast R&B singer Chris Brown tweeted, “No more planking for me unless it’s on a sexy lady. Lol.” So I saw this tweet and I retweeted it adding, “You spelled “punching” wrong.” Obviously in reference to that fact that Brown was arrested in 2009 for assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna.

But now in the light of day, I’d like to apologize to Chris Brown and to his fans that are known as ‘Team Breezy.’ To Mr. Brown, I apologize for referencing the fact that you beat the crap out of Rihanna. It was disrespectful of me to draw attention to the fact that you put your girlfriend in the hospital. [People in the background laughing] And further, it was not my place to make people remember that you beat a woman with your fists, leaving her with multiple facial contusions, a bloody nose, and a split lip. I know that now.

I also appreciate the fact that you tweeted me, letting me know that children conduct themselves better than I do. You are correct, and I could only hope to one day mature to the point where I can conduct myself in a more adult manner. Possibly by throwing a chair out of a window and storming out of a building with my shirt off. [Laughter] I ask only for your patience.

To Team Breezy I would also like to say that I’m sorry. Thank you for your thousands of tweets which taught me a lot about the creative possibilities of spelling, grammar, and syntax.  Possibilities I couldn’t even imagine before last night. In particular I’d like to thank the female members of Team Breezy, who have taught me that as long as you can sing, you can beat the living hell out of a woman and other women will still love you.

And lastly, I apologize to everyone for using Twitter to subtly address the fact that I think it’s disgusting that a guy who put his girlfriend can, a mere two years later, be warmly welcomed back into society and appear on shows such as Saturday Night Live, as if everything he did magically never happened. It won’t happen again.”

“Really Greg, the only thing Chris Brown is guilty of? A felony.”

I will be the first to say that Chris Brown has made HUGE mistakes in the past and still isn’t the most mature young adult.  But damn Fox News, you’re jockin’ him like it’s noone’s business.  What really upset me is the fact that he insulted Brown’s fans as well…really though??That would be okay if you were doing the same to other people in Hollywood who act cray-cray, such as Charlie Sheen.

Smh.

Watch the “apology” below:

Video: Jay-Z Recruits Affion Crockett for Rocawear Campaign

Affion Crockett had everyone laughing and quite impressed by his Jay-Z impersonations….including the man of the hour himself.  The RocNation president recruited the comedian for the Rocawear viral campaign. Affion a.k.a. Hov raps to “Death of Autotune” and then transforms into the famed Les Twins for a dance routine to “Venus vs. Mars.”

This isn’t funny.  I am just impressed.  Watch below:

 


Did Lil’ Wayne Spend The Night With A 16 yr. Old Girl??!!

Lil’ Wayne might be in all types of trouble if the allegations that he spent the night with a 16. yr. old girl are true. According to Mediatakeout.com, who we think are a bit skeptical with at times, have all this photographic evidence that make it hard not to believe.

Sarah, an 11th grader from Ottawa, Canada apparently went to Weezy’s concert in her hometown and tried to link up with him after the show but was unable to. She then took a 2 hr. bus ride to Montreal where Weezy performed again and had luck linking up with him at the afterparty.

Sarah and Lil’ Wayne at the afterparty.

After the festivities at Lemouche Night Club, Sarah says the two went to his hotel room and spent the night together.

Now, all I can say is that sure looks like Lil’ Wayne to me. The rapper is on probation and I just hope that the two didn’t take it that far. This is highly unlikely, but how was Weezy to know!? Little Sarah is looking way older than 16 years. This one’s for the books.

What are your thoughts??
