Evelyn Tearfully Speaks About Chad (Vid)

Evelyn just shared this snippet of an interview that will air on Nightline. In it she comes to tears when asked if she'll ever speak to Chad again.

You know what I think.. I think she should wait to do these interviews. Thats a huge mistake I feel people make in this business..trying to address something too soon. Anywho- peep the vid below.

Photos Of The Moment: Blue Ivy & Daddy Jay Z

As a long time Jay Z fan.. nothing in his career has made me happier than seeing him father Blue Ivy. Jay for years has talked about how the lack of a father in his life shaped a lot of his behaviors and choices and how he would be the best father he could when his time came around.

Well it has come and the world seems to be in love with watching the street poet from Brooklyn, who may be a little rough around the edges, turn into a Daddy! I love these pics that made rounds yesterday online of Jay & Blue getting off of the jet together! Look at her headphones and all of that sandy red hair!! #HelloBlue!

New Video: Nas- Bye Baby

Nasir keeps it all the way real in his latest single and video Bye Baby. The track was built around an Aaron Hall sample- and the r&b OG actually makes an appearance in the video. The visual for the song based on Nas' relationship with ex wife singer Kelis stays true to the lyrics.

The video chronicles Nas in an empty house reminscing about his relationship with Kelis. In the song he recalls their best times and their worst times..down to divorce details.

I really love this video simply because it stays true to the song- I prefer these kinds of visuals. Plus- Nas is so easy with words.. the song is great! Oh! Ladies.. Lance is in here too!!!!!!!!!

Friday Fun: Ok #TeamBreezy & #RihannaNavy lets settle this! Who has the hottest BFFS?!

So, for a few months now Ive been following some true Rihanna & Chris Brown fans on twitter. This has led me to a few discoveries. One being just how much fans love Chris & Rih's best friends!

Chris Brown and Rihanna are known hotties! I went on the longest twitter rant last night about how BAD Rih is..and Chris..the older he gets- the harder it is for me to keep this "kid brother" image in my head. What is even more interesting though is - not only are they hot, but - have you seen their Bffs?!

Though other people are around Chris & Rihanna it is clear to me that the core has always been Mijo & Keeis for Chris & Mel & Lele for Rihanna!

There are fans who literally stan for Chrianna's closest friends. Mel & Lele both  are extremely hot and arent afraid to show it on Instagram.  Then you have Mijo and Keeis who roll with Chris .. and literally have the ladies in both Rih & Chris' crew going crazy!

So.. just for fun... lets settle this once and for all.. who has the hotter BFFS?! Take the poll below the pics!!

Brandy Reveals Cover Art for New Album Two-Eleven

YES! My favorite girl Brandy just revealed this fierce cover for her next album Two-Eleven dropping  October 16th! Brandy has already released two singles and a video from the album; Put It Down with Chris Brown, and the latest Wildest Dreams!

Both records are on itunes & BANANAS!!! I am too excited about this album & YES for this cover Bran!!!

New Video- 2 Chainz ft. Kanye West - Birthday Song (Explicit)

I know Im not the only person that reads dudes name like " 2 Chaaiiinnnz" every time! This is a hood song and a hood video. Features 2 Chainz in the crib with a woman as a birthday cake.

The comedic video is full of girls shaking their booties everywhere. Kanye is in it with his couple of extra pounds. Must be that boo'd up weight he's carrying from Kim K. I definitely watched this video with a side eye the entire time. Im confused about the kids being in it so much, and the overall theme. Comedy!

This is definitely not for kids or safe for work.. 

Chris Brown Dyes Hair BLUE & gets new ink!

Chris Brown is always up to something! This photo made it's way to his instagram account last night shortly after his tattoo artist revealed he was getting a little more ink. The multifaceted artist has changed up his hair color for the moment. Keeping the blond around the edges, Chris has dyed the top a really bright blue!

While some fans made fun of the singer turned rapper, others loved the photo and his new hair color! He's got a lot of nerve to do this, but dare I say- it is working for him!!!!! Chris is just wrapping up his video shoot for the next single from FORTUNE, a ballad entitled  Dont Judge Me.

As stated Chris also got started on a new tattoo yesterday- this one on the right side of his neck. It is in it's beginning stages according to Chris' tattoo artisPeter Koskela- but it depicts the face of a woman as seen below.

Chris just got the tattoo seen in the first pic on the left side of his neck not too long ago. Chris may be going for the fully tatted rocker look. What yall think about his expressive image?!

Ever Wondered What Really Happened Between Jay Z & Dame? Beanie Sigel tells all!

Beanie Sigel was at the top of his game and one of the hottest rappers in the Rocafella crew back in the day. His struggles with street life were later revealed by Jay Z to be one of the reasons he wasn't able to be as successful in music.

Those same struggles still haunt the Philly rapper today. Beanie was set to begin a 2 yr stint in federal prison for tax evasion this month, but was arrested Wednesday in a traffic stop. According to reports, Beanie was in the presence of pills, mary j, a load of cash, and a loaded weapon. None of which are good for a convicted felon set to start a stint in a couple of weeks.

Beanie had just released his sixth album, This Time only hours before his arrest. It's crazy to fathom how someone can go from being so hot with the Roc to this!!

Not too long ago the rapper sat down with Xilla over at Global Grind and talked about what he felt the reason for the Roc's disbanding and what exactly happened between Jay Z & Dame Dash. Crazy! I wish him the best! S/o to Xilla & GG!

New Video: PJ Morton ft. Lil Wayne - Lover

YMCMB artist PJ Morton is a household name around the country for his incredible success prior to signing to YM. Now that he's signed and ready, he's teamed up with his boss man to give you this hot new single, Lover.

PJ is known for his sultry and smooth vocals and incredibly songwriting.

The record may not be what longtime PJ fans are used to, but it's still a great song! Check out the video below that features Wayne and get PJ's EP here!

Rob Kardashian Speaks to Ryan Seacrest about Rihanna

Over the weekend, it was announced by many media sources that Rihanna and Rob Kardashian went on a day/night long date last Saturday. Even though they were out with a group of people, the media overlooked the others and pinned the two young Pisces together.

For the first time Rob is speaking out about those rumors to good friend and radio personality Ryan Seacrest.  He also spoke about his break down on the last episode of KUWTK. Rob is extremely emotional and expressive. His relationship with Kim is very interesting to say the least. 

“It’s because Rihanna’s a friend, and she is friends with my friend Capricorn, and it was her birthday. Then we all went out to celebrate our friend’s birthday. It was fun! It was a good night!”
He also answered questions about his girlfriend Rita Ora...who he's "not dating" but ok. lol Click HERE for the full interview.

Families of Aurora, Colorado shooting victims question fundraising

Family members of some of the Colorado theater shooting victims question a fundraising campaign, saying it collected more than $5 million using pictures and names of the victims, according to a report by the Associated Press

Kim Kardashian reveals wedding gown!

Kim K did some late night modeling at a fitting she had yesterday. The love bird has been seen boo'd up with producer/rapper Kanye West for months, so fans jumped on this photo of her in a white Pucci gown.

Though I doubt very seriously that KimYe is about to take that leap already, it is very interesting that their relationship is growing on me! This was definitely another Kim K, lets get them talking move.. but it worked. Im sure she'll be on every blog there is today "getting married!"

So @Rihanna is just gonna wear THIS & make it look hot?- whatever.

Ok, so, heres the thing. Rihanna pretty much wears what she wants. Some of it doesnt even make any sense to the common man, but she puts it on and BOOM.. it works. 

Rih is in London working on her line with  River Island and was spotted out this morning rocking one of those outfits you nor I could get away with. 

The ensemble includes a  Kenzo Eiffell Tower log sweater , a green Kenzo cap, a pair of denim shorts that she seems to love, Opening Ceremony's Mary Ellen leopard booties, and her new fave Gucci bag. 

All pretty much a stretch.. but she looks amazing!! Seriously..what is it about Rihanna that allows her to get away with this stuff & don't say money because Im not impressed by that. She actually brings these fits together somehow! Werrrrrk Rih!

The Kardashian Sisters Want Rita Ora OUT of Rob's Life

As a big sister- I know that my sister and I can be a pain in the rear when it comes to my brother's girlfriends.. this appears to be normal. Rob Kardashian may be experiencing the same thing with his three older sisters. Ha!

The big secret (not) around town ever since Jay Z's latest artist Rita Ora hit the scene is that she and Kim Kardashians little brother Rob have a thing going on. Though they deny it in official interviews, the two have been seen together all over the world. They send each other sweet I love yous over twitter, and Rob promotes her like he's being paid.

Well, it seemed to me that the Kardashian sisters would be all for Rob dating someone like Rita, but this may not be the case. Saturday night Rob went out with a group of friends inluding Lauren London and Rihanna. In the wee hours of the morning Rita took to her twitter raving about missing Rob..

 Where is my baby @RobKardashian ! I need some of him NOW!!!

Though she quickly deleted and claimed to be hacked it didnt go over too well with the twitter world. The next morning Rob's oldest sister Kourtney   tweeted " a ho is a ho is a ho is a ho" which was retweeted by his other sister Khloe with a little extra added on top.

Some assumed this was a diss towards Rihanna after media made up a story about the two spending the night together...but come on- the girls know better! Rob & Rihanna are just friends..they were out with many others enjoying a mutual friend's birthday.

 We may have gotten the answer to who they were actually talking about last night. In a very smart PR move Kim Kardashian tweeted out a photo of herself with little brother Rob.

 Just the day before an epsidoed of their show Keeping up with the Kardashians showed Rob in tears over how his family doesn't support him amongst other things. As to not stop with just the photo she then randomly tweets the following:

That tweet was immediately retweeted by Khloe who doesnt follow Rita anymore.  Hmm.. did something happen between Rob & Rita causing big sisters' claws to come out!? We probably will have to wait on the next season of KUWTK to find out. In the meantime.. Rob re- followed Rita and tweeted about her album...

#CouplesWeLove Diddy Turns Up for Cassie's Birthday

Diddy and Cassie were lowkey with their relationship for so long that I think many people still have no clue that they really are an item. Well, if you needed any proof you surely got it this weekend! Diddy went all out for his extremely BADD girl Cassie who celebrated her birthday yesterday.

He tweeted her happy birthday a billion  times, posted pics of her and the extravagant gifts he gave her on his instagram, and helped her party party party (and we know Diddy can party).

This weekend Cassie was spotted with some of everybody. Just last night the model/singer turned greystone night club out with the likes of Diddy, Tyga, Chris Brown, French Montana, and others. This looks like a birthday she'll never forget!

Chilli still loves Usher? AND They Start Following each other on twitter

The beautiful, talented, sweet Chilli has been quite busy lately taking time out to be with her fans and give back. Amongst other things she held her camp for girls, "Chilli's Crew" this summer, giving young women the heads up on everything from health and fitness to marketing and business! The set up for success is what it sounds like to me!

Chilli also stopped by Lenox Mall the other day to Face the Fans and it proved to be  great experience to many of the fans who got a chance to see or meet the music legend. Fans couldnt help but tweet their photos and how beautiful Chilli is while rubbing shoulders with her. 

Yall may not be surprised by how beautiful she is- she is easily one of the baddest women in the game, and lets not forget she doesnt appear to be aging any time soon. What may surprise you though is an answer Chilli just gave to one of the many questions fans asked her.

Chilli does a great job interacting with her fans on twitter - she gets loads of questions. What I realized in interviewing Chilli is that she's a straight shooter. So, when a fan asked her about loving Usher still her answer was short and sweet- "4ever n ever." 

 To make it even more sweet for some of you Chilli Usher hopefuls... they just started following each other on twitter... mmmmhmmmmm..... 

Now- don't read into that too much- you can't help the love part. As much as I wanted to see these two back together Im forced to think it'll never happen. At least we know the love is still there!! 

Check out a video of what the girls at Chilli's Crew camp got to experience and a few fan photos from Face the Fans below!

WHAT?! @Joan_Rivers Threatens to Slap @Rihanna - Will that not make you an abuser Joan?

When will people learn when enough is enough!? This is the craziest thing Ive seen all week. Comedian/ Actress Joan Rivers took to her twitter page today to say some pretty ridiculous things. First off can we discuss that she is like  just minutes younger than dust- why is she on twitter?!

Honestly, her being on twitter at this age probably wouldn't be such a problem if she exercised some wisdom while using it, but that may be too much to ask. As the old adage goes.. age does not equal wisdom.  Today, in an effort Im assuming to be funny and factual she tweeted that she'd heard Rihanna say she still loves Chris on Oprah and that it's now her turn (Joan) to slap Rihanna.

Now, this is where I get a bit irritated with everybody having such a strong opinion on their reunion (that was not revealed to be true on Oprah..btw- so I dont know why Joan is mad)..but it's the mere fact that you can not fix hate with hate. IS this woman kidding me?! How dare she threaten to slap Rihanna "again". That is in no way comical or helping the plight of eradicating domestic violence. It's just Joan being ignorant.

After Rih clapped back at Joan with a "slow & old" tweet.. Joan attempted to clear it up by telling Rih to check the statistics and come on her show.. Seriously?!

YES statistics do say that most dv offenders will abuse again, but there are exceptions to every statistic. Hell if statistics had their way- I as a 26 yr old black woman should be HIV positive with 3 children all conceived by the age of 20...but I am none of those things.

There are exceptions whether people want to accept it or not. Either way Joan was way.. WAY out of line for saying its her turn to slap Rihanna.

If you want to do something in the fight against domestic violence here are a few things that will NOT help you do it:

1.) Sending Chris Brown hateful tweets/comments/energy every time you see his name/face.
2.) Threatening to hit a woman who has experienced it for saying she loves a man.

Everybody who does these things needs to grow up! Seems she's no better at darn near 80 yrs old in 2012 than a 19 yr old was in 2009. Abuse is abuse! ITS THE SAME THING!

Judge Awards Primary Custody to Usher.. Not Tameka

Today after a long and emotional custody battle, the judge ruled in favor of R&B singer Usher. Tameka and Usher have been in court for a while now defending and accusing left and right.

Usher was said to have been MIA as a dad according to Tameka, and Tameka did not attend as much as she could according to Usher. It's been a very public battle for the two sons that Usher & Tameka have together, but that has finally come to an end according to TMZ.

No details on just how the arrangement will work but it is certain that Usher has been given primary custody. I pray he is the best option for the boys. 

Sad news: Shooting outside Empire State Building came from workplace dispute

Lance Armstrong Speaks on Being Banned From Cycling/Stripped of Titles (Full Statement)

Well- this is sad. I have great memories of Lance winning his titles in Cycling, beating cancer, being with Cheryl Crow.. all of these moments were overshadowed by one thing- the investigation he was under. For years now he's been under investigation for using illegal/enhancing drugs to win the seven Tours he has won in Cycling since 99.

Lance has released a statement that explains more than I can & it's lengthy so I wont say more.. but this is sad. His statement below:

There comes a point in every man’s life when he has to say, “Enough is enough.” For me, that time is now. I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999. Over the past three years, I have been subjected to a two-year federal criminal investigation followed by Travis Tygart’s unconstitutional witch hunt. The toll this has taken on my family, and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today – finished with this nonsense. 
I had hoped that a federal court would stop USADA’s charade. Although the court was sympathetic to my concerns and recognized the many improprieties and deficiencies in USADA’s motives, its conduct, and its process, the court ultimately decided that it could not intervene. 
If I thought for one moment that by participating in USADA’s process, I could confront these allegations in a fair setting and – once and for all – put these charges to rest, I would jump at the chance. But I refuse to participate in a process that is so one-sided and unfair. Regardless of what Travis Tygart says, there is zero physical evidence to support his outlandish and heinous claims. The only physical evidence here is the hundreds of controls I have passed with flying colors. I made myself available around the clock and around the world. In-competition. Out of competition. Blood. Urine. Whatever they asked for I provided. What is the point of all this testing if, in the end, USADA will not stand by it? 
From the beginning, however, this investigation has not been about learning the truth or cleaning up cycling, but about punishing me at all costs. I am a retired cyclist, yet USADA has lodged charges over 17 years old despite its own 8-year limitation. As respected organizations such as UCI and USA Cycling have made clear, USADA lacks jurisdiction even to bring these charges. The international bodies governing cycling have ordered USADA to stop, have given notice that no one should participate in USADA’s improper proceedings, and have made it clear the pronouncements by USADA that it has banned people for life or stripped them of their accomplishments are made without authority. And as many others, including USADA’s own arbitrators, have found, there is nothing even remotely fair about its process. USADA has broken the law, turned its back on its own rules, and stiff-armed those who have tried to persuade USADA to honor its obligations. At every turn, USADA has played the role of a bully, threatening everyone in its way and challenging the good faith of anyone who questions its motives or its methods, all at U.S. taxpayers’ expense. For the last two months, USADA has endlessly repeated the mantra that there should be a single set of rules, applicable to all, but they have arrogantly refused to practice what they preach. On top of all that, USADA has allegedly made deals with other riders that circumvent their own rules as long as they said I cheated. Many of those riders continue to race today. 
The bottom line is I played by the rules that were put in place by the UCI, WADA and USADA when I raced. The idea that athletes can be convicted today without positive A and B samples, under the same rules and procedures that apply to athletes with positive tests, perverts the system and creates a process where any begrudged ex-teammate can open a USADA case out of spite or for personal gain or a cheating cyclist can cut a sweetheart deal for themselves. It’s an unfair approach, applied selectively, in opposition to all the rules. It’s just not right. 
USADA cannot assert control of a professional international sport and attempt to strip my seven Tour de France titles. I know who won those seven Tours, my teammates know who won those seven Tours, and everyone I competed against knows who won those seven Tours. We all raced together. For three weeks over the same roads, the same mountains, and against all the weather and elements that we had to confront. There were no shortcuts, there was no special treatment. The same courses, the same rules. The toughest event in the world where the strongest man wins. Nobody can ever change that. Especially not Travis Tygart. 
Today I turn the page. I will no longer address this issue, regardless of the circumstances. I will commit myself to the work I began before ever winning a single Tour de France title: serving people and families affected by cancer, especially those in underserved communities. This October, my Foundation will celebrate 15 years of service to cancer survivors and the milestone of raising nearly $500 million. We have a lot of work to do and I’m looking forward to an end to this pointless distraction. I have a responsibility to all those who have stepped forward to devote their time and energy to the cancer cause. I will not stop fighting for that mission. Going forward, I am going to devote myself to raising my five beautiful (and energetic) kids, fighting cancer, and attempting to be the fittest 40-year old on the planet.

@ChrisBrown Puts HUGE Smiles on the face of Special Needs Kid- Plays 1 on 1 bball game + @MomBreezy Clears Rumors

If you know anything about Chris Brown's management/business you know that his adorable mom Joyce Hawkins  "Mama J" has played a huge role. If you follow her on twitter or know anything about her you also know that she LOVES her son. Everyday on twitter she sends out positive messages to and about him.

She has many reasons to be proud of her son. Most recently he took the time out to play some ball with a few special needs kids. They look like they're having the time of their lives. Chris is known for having great basketball skills, and seems to recently have a passion for helping out wherever he can with special needs people. I think this is adorable, and really gives Mama J something to smile about and be proud of as well. Watch the video of Chris balling with his buddies below!

While she's always flashing that huge smile, "Mama J" also does not come off as someone you want to cross. She is known for keeping it all the way real on her twitter account. The most recent example of this came when blogs and tweeties assumed she was throwing shade at Rihanna post her recent sit down with Oprah. 

Now, it is very clear to me that Mama J has a strong relationship with Rihanna. The two have publically shown love to one another on more than one occasion. So, it didn't seem that Ms. Joyce would take to her twitter account to send subliminal messages Rih's way. Well, it appears my take on this was right, just moments ago, Ms Joyce responded to the rumors that she was throwing shade at her son's ex girlfriend with one simple tweet:

You have to love how real she is. Not that she had to clear that up, but I like how she did it. People will believe anything.

While mama is clearing up rumors, hopefully Chris is keeping that smile on her face. Watch this cute video of him giving back below. Can we discuss WHY Chris is SO talented.. like this dude REALLY balls! lol

Do you think these shoes are worth $315?

The latest shoes in the LeBron James collection come at a hefty price, and they will be released by Nike later this year. 

Republican party tries to focus on economy amid inflammatory comments about abortion

If you haven't kept your eyes or ears on the news this week, you may not have seen this nonsensical phrase from a Republican congressman -- "Legitimate rape."
