Lil Scrappy Released, Addresses Arrest

Can you say "awkward?"

Ashanti, operating in her new capacity as a host for FUSE TV, had to sit down an interview her "unofficial" ex-boyfriend, hip hop star Nelly. Just a day after Bow Wow had to sit down with his ex, Ciara, on "106 & Park," here's another less-than-comfortable one-on-one.

[WATCH ASHANTI'S NELLY INTERVIEW HERE]

Ashanti even asked Nelly about his preference in women.

"Oh word?" Nelly replied. "Let’s talk about that. Bad breath is a deal breaker. Someone who lacks the confidence within themselves, to understand who they are. I won’t say that’s a deal breaker, but I definitely think we would at some point hit that wall, and a nice set of thighs always help."

Ray J Teaser Proves He's Mocking KimYe

Ray J. may have stuck to his story that "I Hit It First" has nothing to do with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, but the teaser for the single's music video proves otherwise.

In the clip, there are shots of a very Kardashian-looking woman in bed with Ray J wearing heels. Also, there are a couple of shots of a Chicago road sign. Everybody knows Kanye West is from Chicago.

The road sign appears when Ray J mentions in the song that the woman he "hit first" went "West." Then its shown again at the end of the clip.

Classy, Ray J.

Mr.-Vegas-lonely-music-video

I call Mr. Vegas the Propaganda King, what with his ability to take any detail of his life from the sordid to the trivial and have folks talking about it.

He’s now got folks wondering if his parisian love interest in the video for “Whenever You’re Lonely,” is his fiancee.

The MV Music boss posted a photo of himself and Sara Pariss on his official website with the caption True Love from Paris for Mr Vegas & his French belle?

He remains to confirm perhaps to wring every bit of PR juice out of this latest aspect of his very public life.

“Whenever You’re Lonely” is off his latest album Sweet Jamaica and was produced by MV Music on the Suriname Riddim.

Watch the two in action in the video below.

So are they an item??? We’re still waiting on Vegas to stop the teasing and confirm

beenie man

International recording superstar Beenie Man and his management team has inked a distribution deal with Tommy Boy Entertainment LLC to distribute three of the artiste’s more recent singles in the US marketplace.

“We have signed a deal with Tommy Boy that will see them distributing the ‘Greatest Gallis’ song featuring Sean Paul, ‘Soul Mate’, a song with Gyptian that has over 100,00 hits on youtube already after only one month and one more ‘song produced by Beenie Man’s label, MD Entertainment,” Rohan ‘Blue’ Smith, Beenie Man’s manager said in a relase.

Beenie Man recently completed a successful two week mini-tour of the United States where he tested a number of markets stateside to support the release of his upcoming EP, ‘King in Control: Dweet Again’. The tour kicked off performances in Jacksonville before moving on to Orlando, Minnesota, Tampa and upstate New York. The self-proclaimed King of the Dancehall pulled out large numbers of fans on several occasions on the tour.

“The first performance in Jacksonville was incredible, but the best feedback so far was at the Epic Event Center in Minneapolis on April 12th. Is not just any and any artiste can play at the Epic which features big hip hop acts and such, and Beenie Man locked down the show over the weekend…the tour was great, we only missed one show because of some scheduling conflicts. The shows were a confirmation that there is a big demand for Beenie Man and that is why Tommy Boy is now on board,” Rohan ‘Blue’ Smith, Beenie Man’s manager, said in a release.

FREE TO THE PUBLIC: 2013 Miss Universe Jamaica For Emancipation Park On July 7
25-04-2013, 08:25 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

miss univers jamaica 2012 top 3

New year, new approach

The Miss Universe Jamaica pageant organizers have brought event management company INTUIT concepts on board to inject some new ideas and concepts into the pageant. Owned and operated by Kibwe McGann and Sean Lyn, INTUIT Concepts has several successful lifestyle brands: Wedding Spectacular; The Collections; Kingston Bridal Week; and Lifestyle TV series SPLASH -which airs on US cable giant BET.

The duo has made a dramatic first move by opting for an open-aire venue and offering the show FREE of charge to the public. Last year’s pageant was held at the National Stadium and an indoor venue prior to that. This year’s staging on July 7th will be at the well-known park located in new Kingston.

“We desire for everyone to own a part of this experience, hence our decision to share the selection of Miss Universe Jamaica with the people of Jamaica. The title ‘Miss Jamaica’ is a property that we believe can never be truly owned by a single group. Miss Universe Jamaica is a servant and a representative of the Jamaican people.” stated McGann in a release to CaribbeanCelebs.com

“In accordance with our theme, ‘going for the crown’, we are working feverishly with our sponsors and partners to reintroduce scholarships, a car lease and a considerable cash prize with the hopes of attracting a savvy, beautiful, goal-oriented woman who can represent Jamaica and make us proud,” added Lyn.

The Miss Universe title has been elusive for Jamaica. Yendi Phillipps was first runner-up in 2010; while Sandra Foster (1989); Kimberly Mais (1991); Nicole Haughton (1999); and Christine Straw (2004), were all in the Top 10.

In November 2012 general manager of the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort and Spa, Dimitri Kosvogiannis, secured the franchise rights. It was previously owned by Kingsley Cooper — CEO of Pulse modelling agency who ended his 20-year relationship with the event in May 2009.

Miss Universe Pageant is one of three largest beauty contests in the world. It was founded in 1952.

ishawna foota hype onstage



After eight years of dating and a six year-old son, Foota Hype (Oneil Thomas) popped the question to his girlfriend Ishawna Smith and dished about it on On Stage with Winford Williams.

When asked why he took so long to pop the question Foota replied,
“Like the great ones before me said ‘take time to know her.”

Ishawna says she was caught off guard when Foota popped the big question earlier this month at an event celebrating his 12 years in the biz.

“The event was about him so it took me off guard,” Ishawna said.

According to the veteran Sound System selector and producer, the time and the moment was just right to make the big move.

He called Ishawna “special” and revealed that they shared the same values. According to Foota, he did not see himself being married before he began dating Ishawna.

The future Ms. Thoamas said that their relationship has survived “most of the hard times and [they] understand each other alot” and as such are ready for any challenges the future may bring.

The couple has not yet set a date for the nuptials…. as soon as we know, we’ll keep you posted.

David Letterman Tells Fired TV News Anchor : ‘They Should Apologize And Hire You Back!’
25-04-2013, 08:24 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

Fired TV news anchor turned media sensation A.J. Clemente continued his “You just have to laugh at yourself” press tour Wednesday night – appearing on The Late Show with (a sympathetic) David Letterman.

Letterman – who cut his teeth in broadcasting as a jokester weatherman in Indianapolis in the 1970s — seemed especially taken aback by KFYR-TV’s decision to sack him after his (unfortunate) first time anchoring the weekend evening news on the NBC affiliate in Bismarck, North Dakota.

PHOTOS: Awkward! Embarrassing School Photos That Last A Lifetime

“Now, what about these goons in Bismarck? Are they going to give you the job back?” Letterman asked the likeable Clemente, who laughingly responded, “They aren’t goons, but…”
Letterman then interjected, “You’re better than that…”

He then added, “There should be an offer, and they should apologize to you. And you should go back because you’re man enough to face the music. You’ve been on this show, you’ve been on a lot of shows, you’ve been on the Twitter and on the Facefeed and all of that stuff. If you want to, you should be offered that job back. Now, would you take it if they said to you, ”A.J., come on back, we accept our responsibility in this. Everybody makes mistakes. Let’s go forward.’”

Clemente said he’s “thought about that, but if ESPN came knocking…” to which Letterman quipped, “Look, I’m trying to get you the job back in Bismarck, forget about ESPN. That ain’t gonna happen. You’re going back to Bismarck.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Clemente’s first day of anchoring went so badly that he was promptly suspended and then fired after dropping the f-bomb on live television during KFYR-TV’s 6pm newscast last Sunday.

“F*cking sh*t,” the rookie anchor was heard whispering into his microphone as an announcer introduced the newscast. In his defense, Clemente says the newscast started thirty seconds early, and that neither he, nor his co-anchor, were given any warning that they were live on the air.

Clemente’s Wednesday’s appearance on Letterman comes on the same day he appeared live on TODAYMSNBC’s Morning Joe, and Live with Kelly and Michael.

In fact, Clemente will be back on ‘Live’ Thursday; during his appearance on Wednesday, the hosts invited him to serve as their special red carpet correspondent at the Wednesday night NYC premiere of Pierce Brosnan’s new film, Love Is All You Need.


Law & Order 90210! Chris Meloni Leases Beverly Hills Mansion: Take A Peek Inside
25-04-2013, 08:24 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

Former Law & Order: SVU star Chris Meloni unloaded his Connecticut mansion last week and headed west, leasing a Beverly Hills estate — and RadarOnline.com has all the photos of his new digs.

Meloni, 52, and his wife, Sherman Williams, are renting the 6,000 square-foot sprawling 1929 Spanish villa for around $20,000 per month, The Real Estalker reports.

Featuring four bedrooms and six bathrooms, the two-story home has an impressive master suite with a lavishly restored vintage bathroom.

It’s not clear is renting the home comes with the furnishings or not — but if so, they’re in for a treat!

According to the listing, the main floor powder room features a mirrored console with an orange velvet upholstered ceiling and crystal chandelier.

Four Knockout Singers, But Who Was ‘The Best Of The Night’ On American Idol?
25-04-2013, 08:24 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

It was another strong night for the final four contestants on American Idol Wednesday, with one simply owning the night, while another had the judges crowing about how she’s stepped up her game as the competition progresses.

SPOILER: Who Stood Out The Most Wednesday?

On a night the singers individually performed twice — one song of their choice, and the viewer-voted “One-hit wonder” theme, it was Angela Miller‘s time to shine. (The ladies also performed a third time – in pairs.)

The 19-year-old from Beverly, Mass. dominated with her rendition of Julie London’s Cry Me a River, causing Randy Jackson to proclaim her performance “the best of the night.

“Angie wins the night, hands-down,” the veteran judge said — a point concurred by Nicki Minaj, who told Angela, “Tonight was your night.

“You came out tonight to snatch some wigs off some heads!” the Super Bass singer said, while Keith Urban described the act as “mystical and celestially powerful.”

Randy also called Angie’s rendition of Jessie J’s Who You Are “sheer perfection” and “a 10 out of 10 out of 10.”

And while it might have been Angela’s night, Amber Holcomb had her strongest showing yet with a cover of Richard Harris’ MacArthur Park.

The 19-year-old Houston, Texas native took the stage with a sense of style and swagger that brought her “star quality” to the surface, according to one Mariah Carey.
Nicki told her, “You’re blooming for the world to see — out of the four girls in the competition, you’re the one I would want to get to know.”

Randy also noted the breakout showing, telling viewers, “If y’all don’t know who Amber is, y’all should know tonight that she’s in it to win it!”

Elsewhere, Candice Glover might have been a victim of her own success Wednesday: Her performances in recent weeks have been so good, the judges’ expectations are getting harder to live up to.

Performing Drake‘s Find Your Love, the 23-year-old Beaufort, S.C. native — who said she was nursing a “terrible cold” — was called out by Randy for her inability to make adjustments.

“The vocals are crazy good [but] doesn’t mean that you have to use it all the time, full-on,” he explained. “It can’t always sound like you’re in church.”

She rebounded with her second song, the Bee Gees’ Emotion, as Mariah classified the performance as “super-duper-superstar quality.”

Kree Harrison also remains in the competition; we’ll see who gets the boot when American Idol‘s 12th season continues Thursday on Fox at 8/7c.


Busted Lying To The Cops: The 13 Biggest Lies That Jodi Arias Told The Police
25-04-2013, 08:24 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

With repeated memory lapses and conflicting tales of both love and abuse constantly spilling out in the courtroom, even murder defendant Jodi Arias has admitted that she “couldn’t keep my stories straight” in the wake of Travis Alexander‘s gruesome 2008 death.

We now know that Jodi was lying from the onset of the investigation during her initial interrogation with Detective Esteban Flores that was carried out a month after the alleged murder when she said she didn’t kill Travis, and RadarOnline.com has collected the top whoppers that the femme fatale killer told the police.

PHOTOS: Jodi Arias Murder Trial: The 44 Most Important Evidence Photos

1. She Didn’t Hurt Him

“I did not hurt Travis… I would never hurt him,” Arias claimed while still denying she had any connection to her former boyfriend’s butchering. She has since confessed to killing him, citing self defense with a black-out obliterating details of the grisly crime.

2. She Would Confess If She Had Killed Him

“If I did that, I’d be fully ready to face the consequences. I’m all for the Ten Commandments – thou shall not kill,” Arias said playing the role of a devout Christian while still not revealing that she stabbed him 29 times, slit his throat and shot him.

3. She Didn’t Kill Travis

When described by Detective Flores as “the kid who got caught stealing the candy and continue to say it wasn’t me,” Arias continued to claim, “I didn’t kill Travis… I did not take his life.”

4. She Hadn’t Seen Him Since April, 2008

As she was living in Yreka, Calif. before the murder “Arias stated she last saw Travis in April of 2008,” a police officer wrote in a document that was read to the jury during the trial. She later admitted that she drove to his house in Arizona on her way to Utah in June 2008 to visit another man.

5. She Didn’t Speak To Him The Day He Died

“On Tuesday night (I talked to him), it was brief though, 10 o’clock maybe. I’d say 10 p.m. or 9 or 9:30,” Arias told police, referring to the night before Travis’ Wednesday, June 4 death. “I was calling people because I was bored on the road. He was nice and cordial, but kind of acting like he had hurt feelings.”

6. She Called Him After She Killed Him, But Didn’t Know Why He Hadn’t Deleted His Messages

“I may have called him Wednesday, from the road, and I sent him a couple of text messages, and a couple of pictures,” she said, though Alexander didn’t pick up and his voice mailbox was full. “That’s unusual,” she said, because he usually deleted his messages. Cell phone records since proved that she reportedly called him and dialed into his voice mail system for 16 minutes, which indicated she was accessing his voice mail messages.

7. She Hadn’t Seen The Camera

The aspiring photographer told Flores that she advised Travis what kind of camera — which has since become a key piece of evidence — to buy but hadn’t seen it yet. We now know that the couple took X–rated photos of each other — plus accidental shots of the subsequent aftermath the day of the murder — and she then dumped in it in the washing machine.

8. She Said Travis Didn’t Own A Gun

“That is one of the things I am scared of. (Guns and) public speaking,” Arias cheerily revealed to the detective. “That was one of the things (Alexander) was trying to get me to do — get out of my comfort zone.”

9. She Said She Could Never Stab Anyone

“I’m not the brightest person, but I don’t think I could stab him, I’d have to shoot him … The least I could do is make it as humane as possible,” Jodi bizarrely revealed, however the bloody crime scene showed that Travis was stabbed 29 times in the most inhumane way possible.

10. She Would Have Used Gloves

“If I was going to ever try to kill somebody, I would use gloves. I have plenty of them,” she claimed, but no gloves were worn during the killing.

11. She Was Attacked By Intruders

When she finally admitted to being at Alexander’s Mesa, Ariz. house when he died, Jodi made up a story of two masked intruders breaking in and attacking the couple. “He was kneeling down in the shower, I don’t remember, I was taking pictures, and I don’t really know what happened after that exactly, except I think he was shot,” Arias said on the tape, crying and placing her face in her hands, and then rocking back and forth in her chair. “I was on my knees here and I heard this loud ring, I don’t really remember except Travis was screaming,” she said.

12. She Was Threatened And Kept Quiet For The Safety Of Her Family

Not only did she fabricate a fantastical tale of being attacked, Jodi painted herself as a heroine by saying she tried to fight back and then kept it a secret because they threatened her family. “They didn’t discuss much, they just argued about whether or not to kill me because I’m a witness, of Travis, but I didn’t really witness it, I didn’t see much,” Arias said to Flores. “They got my license and registration. My parents address was on it.”

13. She Fought Off Intruders

“She (the other intruder) was in the bathroom, standing over Travis. I charged her. I ran down the hall, pushed her as hard as I could,” she bragged, detailing the make believe attack.

Mob Wives Mayhem! Karen Gravano Says Love Majewski Was Fired From The Show Because Carla Facciolo Threatened To Sue VH1
25-04-2013, 08:24 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

Mob Wives star Love Majewski had a short-lived career on the hit VH1 show and cast member Karen Gravano exclusively tells RadarOnline.com she was both fired and uninvited to the reunion show taping because Carla Facciolo threatened to sue the network over a cat fight the two women had.

“I think Love wasn’t invited because Carla pretty much spoke to VH1 about not showing up if Love was invited,” Karen told Radar.

“Carla’s threatening to sue and VH1 wanted to avoid any lawsuits.”

PHOTOS: Reality TV’s Hottest Stars

Known as a hot-tempered mob moll who’s been engaged six times, Love attacked Carla in the season three finale episode — which is why Carla didn’t want her on the show any longer.

“The thing about it is when Drita, Ramona and I had a falling out the second season, we pretty much could talk it out without getting the police and lawyers involved,” Karen said.

“But Carla’s sue happy.”

PHOTOS: Bikini Wars: Reality Stars Compete!

After news broke of Love not attending the reunion show or returning next season, she tweeted, “I appreciate everyone’s support but please don’t blame @VH1 they did NOT fire me,I enjoyed working with @vh1,I was let go by left/right [productions].”

“At the end of the day, maybe VH1 didn’t feel like dealing with lawyers,” Karen told Radar.

“I think its unfair because everyone has the right to defend themselves so it’s unfortunate that Love wasn’t invited so that she could say what really happened.”


Ciara HOSTS Exclusive LISTENING Party In NYC, DISHES ON Why She's More OPEN, Her FEELINGS For FUTURE And SEEING Bow Wow AGAIN

Ciara hosted an exclusive listening for her Ciara album in New York last night where she opened up about her new approach to music, her relationship with Future and what it was like seeing Bow Wow at "106 & Park."  See what she talked about inside...

<!--break--><!--break-->

  photo ciar2.png

Yesterday, Ciara tweeted a pic of herself on the way to her exclusive listening party for Ciara, saying"Hittin The Streets of NY. Outchea."  The event was held at Germanos Studio and attended by an intimate group of media, including TheYBF.com.

When asked what's different about the Ciara album and her overall approach to her career, she said,

"When I did a recap you have to look at yourself in the mirror and see what you did right and wrong but people haven't got to get to know me. I can't grow as an artist until people get to know me. Embrace your imperfections to get closer to perfection."

In addition to being more open musically, she was also forthcoming about her relationship with Future.  She revealed that the storyline for her "Body Party" video was very similar to the way they hooked up in real life.  She said he was very upfront about liking her and she's very happy with him.

She also talked about running into her ex-boyfriend Bow Wow on "106 &  Park" saying it wasn't awkward at all because she was more focused on the fans and talking about her new video and album.  

While working on the Ciara album, she revealed that she felt very "free" and she's been in a very creative zone.  She added that she's "turned up" about heading back to Atlanta to prepare for her upcoming tour because she really wants to perform her new songs.

During the session, she previewed several tracks for those in attendance.  The songs ranging from bouncy pop tunes to ballads and R&B.  The disc will also feature production from Mike Will Made IT ("Body Party"), Future ("Where You Go"), an appearance by rapper Nicki Minaj on "I'm Out" and an ode to oral sex called "Read My Lips".

On the passionate balled "DUI" she croons,  "Im driving under the influence of your love, I might have to pull over".

AWKWARD??!! Ashanti INTERVIEWS Ex-Boyfriend Nelly About The "TYPE OF GIRL" He Likes And Working With Chris Brown
24-04-2013, 12:25 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

Ashanti sat down with her ex-boyfriend Nelly to talk about his relationship dealbreakers, working with Chris Brown, and the type of girl he likes.  And surprisingly...the ex-couple were so warm towards one another it's hard to imagine why they ever split!  Watch the interview inside... 

<!--break--><!--break-->

 

In her new capacity as the host of "FUSE News", Ashanti landed her ex-boyfriend Nelly for one of her first major interviews...and the segment went over exceptionally well!  As the ex-couple dished about Nelly's career and the state of hip hop, they laughed and giggled and even talked about the type of woman Nelly is looking for.  

Though that might have proved awkward for most former lovers, the pair laughed through it and Nelly revealed that he liked a nice "pair of thighs" while looking right at hers!  Here are the highlights:

On the type of girl he likes and dealbreakers:

Bad breath is a dealbreaker.  I don't want someone who lacks the confidence in who they are. I think we would hit the wall. And a nice set of thighs always helps!

On the state of hip hop:

It's not my position to judge whether it's in a bad situation. Obviously hip hop is created for the youth by the youth, and it has to make the same mistakes we made.  I think it's on a braoder scale as far as globally.  It's the most dominating music around the world.

On how he's evolved since Country Grammar:

I've been through so much in my personal life, I'm just here to celebrate I ain't where I could be.  

On "Merry Go Round" with Chris Brown:

I was working with Da Internz and we called Chris up.  At this time, he needs to know who's riding with him or not.

EXCLUSIVE: Tamar Braxton REVEALS Her "BLUEPRINT" For Child Rearing, How Pregnancy FEELS, And What She CRAVES

TheYBF.com caught up with Tamar Braxton on the set of her upcoming video "The One", where she dished on being named one of the best dressed pregnant women, what she's craving and how she plans to raise her child. Find out what she said inside....

<!--break--><!--break-->

 photo tv2.jpg

While shooting the video to her follow-up single "The One", Tamar Braxton, who hit it big with "Love And War",  "delivered" an exclusive interview to TheYBF.com's correspondent Lauren Smith  where she shared her candid feelings about being pregnant, what she's wearing, what she's eating and if she's packed a bag for the hospital!  She also revealed a "few" deets about her upcoming album. Here are the highlights:

On what it "feels" like to be pregnant:

I don't think any pregnancy is easy...people don't talk about that a lot. Everybody's like omg it's a gift, it's a blessing...it is! But it sucks!

On being named one of "Best Dressed Expectant Mothers":

I just dress to my liking. It's nothing that I'm doing purposely. Right now, I refuse to wear maternity clothes. You go through a bit of denial. I just think there are other things to wear rather than big t-shirts and clothes that make you feel unflattering. When you're pregnant, you want to feel as sexy as you can....and that is my goal!

On who she's wearing:

I call it my "maternity" McQueen...because a lot of his things are stretchy. A lot of BCBG. I refuse to wear anything uncomfortable.

On her cravings:

I still like sweet stuff. I'm like greedy Gonzales now (and she still loves Dunkin Donuts apple fritters).

On what she will take to the hospital:

It won't be anything high fashion...it will all be comfortable clothes. (And she hasn't packed a baby bag yet!)

On how she will raise her child:

I think if I follow her blueprint (her mom Evelyn) I'll be alright. My parents did a great job raising us. We've grown up to respect our parents and respect others. We get into little tiffs but we always make up. Those are the values I'd like to instill in my child.

On her next single:

This single...I love it so much. It's a throwback single...it's one of those summertime anthems.  As so as you hear it....you'll love it.

On her leading man:

He's yummy right? He's kind of yummy in a creepy way cause he looks like my brother and my brother's son.

On her album:

My album comes out soon. It's done. It's ready. (She doesn't want to give a date because it keep s changing).

On who she's listening to:

Fantasia, Kelly Rowland, and Miguel 

 

Check out a few flicks from the set:

Wilbrent "Gonk" Bain, the brother of "Here We Go" rapper Trina was shot and killed in Miami, Florida this morning.  Find out more about the shooting inside...

The brother of famed rapper Trina, Wilbrent "Gonk" Bain was shot and killed in Miami, Florida this morning.  According to police reports,  Gonk, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was murdered by Ron Dobson, a neighbor he'd been feuding with.   

A neighbor named "Trimel" told the local NBC affiliate, 6 South Florida, "It hit me hard because I just talked to him. This killing has to stop. It has to. All of us grew up together and that's just senseless."

Trimel suggested that easy access to weapons is an ongoing problem in the area.  "It's a gun problem more than anything because anyone can just get a gun. I guarantee if you walk around this neighborhood now I bet you you'll get it."

Though little has been revealed about what ignited the argument between the men, it was reported that Gonk survived a 2008 shooting and had a record of gun possession, burglary, drugs, and domestic violence involving strangulation. 

Police stated that Ron has confessed to the killing and is charged with second-degree murder.

So far...Trina has not spoken publically about her family's loss.

Trinidad James Sports New Hairstyle

Trinidad James is determined to keep you all talking about him.

The "All Gold Everything" rapper made an appearance on Power 106's "The Breakfast Club" this week and he was sporting a new look. The Atlanta-based star has switched from his infamously lop-sided Afro to a straightened 'do.

James said he was getting his hair cleaned and he felt good about it--and doesn't care about any criticism.

"I just do me all the time," said the Def Jam Records signee.

Say what you will about Trinidad James--he is definitely an individual.

Kim K. Talks Kanye, Marriage & Haters

The whole world seems to be watching Kim Kardashian during her pregnancy. The reality star and her boyfriend Kanye West have endured a significant amount of media scrutiny, and she was grilled about her current relationship during an interview with Angie Martinez on EXTRA.

She was again asked if she and Kanye were planning marriage.

"Don’t you think I should slow down? I think I should slow down," she said of her prospects of getting married again. "I’m just really enjoying my time with Kanye right now and we want to have the baby. When you know how it’s going to be in the end, it’s no need to rush it right now."

Kim also addressed the criticism she's taken from those disapproving her maternity wear.

"It’s pretty ridiculous. I love fashion, I love experimenting with fashion so for me to try all of these new things, pregnant or not pregnant, it’s been fun for me, whether they like it or not," she said. "It’s so funny because people would say, “Take a cue from Kourtney, she looked so good pregnant!” So, I would borrow her clothes and that’s when I would get dogged out the most. We have such different bodies and the things that would look great on her, didn’t look great on me."

"My boyfriend also gets so defensive and he’ll call and say, 'Who’s saying mean things?' and I’m like, 'Don’t worry about it.' I’m so used to it," she added.

Ciara Opens Up To Jenny McCarthy

R&B star Ciara made an appearance on comedic actress Jenny McCarthy's VH1 talk show and opened up a little bit about her personal life. As to be expected, the conversation immediately went straight to Ciara's relationship with rap star Future.

Jenny asked if she saw a future with Future.

"Absolutely.[...]I’m tappin’ that," Ciara replied, but got shy when McCarthy if black men are as "well-endowed" as believed. "I’m not saying anything!"

And she wouldn't talk about how long she and Future have been "official." "I don’t like to say the exact time. It is less than a year but it’s so funny because time is going by so fast we’re close to it.",?p>

And how long is too long to wait?

"I think you wait until it feels right," Ciara said--too which Jenny suggested eight hours. "Eight hours is too soon. Then you go home by yourself and do some naughty things. You have to refrain from the temptation."

Pharrell Vouches For Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has been hanging out with a lot of hip hop notables lately. While some skeptics dismiss the former Disney star's hip hop cred, friend and collaborator Pharrell Williams vouched for Billy Ray's daughter in a recent interview with Hot 97.

"She can tell you everything about Waka Flocka. She can tell you when Gucci Mane came out," he explained. "She means it 'cause she grew up in that. She grew up listening to that with all her friends. She's showing you the signs that she's a different girl."

Miley's been kicking it with 2 Chainz, Lil Kim, Juicy J, Pharrell and Tyler, the Creator over the last few months.

Popcann hit the stage right before the power outage and performed hits such as Head Bad, Get Gal Easy and Only Man She Want,

Dancehall artiste Khago, who has been in a much-talked-about disagreement with judge Skatta, came out with “Blood A Boil”, saying, “from yuh know seh no man nah mind yuh, go so.” Likely referring to comments made recently that Skatta spends more time with Downsound Records head Joseph Bogdanovich that Joe’s own wife.

He later said, “Mi waan big up some people. Big up yuhself Professor Nuts, big up yuhself Miss Kitty … mi fi continue? Big up yuhself Skatta.”

He then went over to where Skatta was seated, held the producer’s hand in the air, saying, “Skatta big up yuhself.” Dude was NOT feeling the gesture….

Khago later did his more popular songs like “Nah Sell Out” and “Nah Sell Out Part 2″ that had the audience singing along.

Last year’s winners Tally (formerly Taliban) and Deep Jahi also
touched the stage performing “Gotta Make It” and “Punching Bag” respectively. Renegade, a crowd favorite and runner up the 2012 staging also performed.

Guyanese Doctor Makes Time Magazine’s 2013 World List of ‘Top 100′ Influential People
24-04-2013, 07:10 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

dr deborah persaud 1

Time Magazine recognized the pioneering work of Guyana-born Dr. Deborah Persaud and listed the HIV/AIDs expert in its annual world List of ‘Top 100’ Influential People!!

Persaud, a top researcher at Johns Hopkins Pediatric, was propelled into the spotlight in early March when she and colleagues Hanna Gay, M.D., of the University of Mississippi Medical Center, and Katherine Luzuriaga, M.D., of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, announced the first functional cure of HIV in an infant.

From News Americas Now:

A virologist and an infectious disease specialist, Persaud is being recognized for her research and clinical work in pediatric HIV and AIDS.

Time’s annual list, now in its 10th year, honors scientists, writers, politicians, economists, activists, innovators and artists whose work has inspired, changed or challenged their fields, according to the magazine. Past honorees include President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Johns Hopkins patient safety expert Peter Pronovost, M.D., the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, and satirist Stephen Colbert.

A functional cure occurs when a person is able to keep the virus at clinically undetectable levels over the long term even after stopping treatment. While Persaud and her colleagues cautioned the infant’s unusual case requires further study and people with HIV should not discontinue treatment, they also hailed it as a potential game-changer supporting the notion that very early treatment quashes the formation of the viral hideouts that make the virus impossible to clear. HIV’s ability to form such hideouts shortly after infection is one of the virus’s most vexing quirks and one that stymies cure. The newborn was treated with antiretroviral therapy unusually early, which the experts believe prevented the development of reservoirs and led to the child’s eventual functional cure. In contrast to a sterilizing cure — a complete eradication of all viral traces from the body — a functional cure occurs when viral presence is so minimal, it remains undetectable by standard clinical tests, yet may be discernible by ultrasensitive methods.

“Debbie Persaud’s work has sparked renewed interest in finding a cure for a disease that was some time ago chalked up as incurable,” says Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Director George Dover, M.D. “Her perseverance and passion have paid off and illuminated some new strategies to improve both prevention and treatment of pediatric HIV.” Even though Persaud’s work gained mainstream attention only recently, she has been active in the field of pediatric HIV for nearly two decades. Her research has focused on understanding some of HIV’s most complex behaviors, including its ability to mutate and to develop resistance to drugs.

Persaud’s other work has focused on strategies to prevent mother-to-child transmission in underdeveloped countries, where children have been hit the hardest.HIV is a daunting, shape-shifting virus in its ability to mutate quickly, Persaud says, and its tendency to form viral reservoirs and become impervious to both drugs and immune defenses not only hinder vaccine development, but also require periodic changes to the life-long treatment to ensure the virus is kept in check. The viral sanctuaries develop when HIV sets up camp in tissues and organs where the virus lies dormant for years. As soon as antiviral therapy is stopped, HIV emerges from hiding to reignite full-blown infection.“Solving these challenges will require a far more precise and far more profound understanding of the basic biology behind HIV’s most intricate maneuvers and the tricks it uses to highjack a child’s immature immune cells and linger on — that is the focus of my work,” Persaud says.Persaud spearheaded much of the early research in this field in the late 1990s and early 2000s by conducting some of the first studies of viral reservoirs in infected babies, children and teens at Johns Hopkins.

In fact, Persaud’s lab at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center is a world leader in the study of HIV reservoirs in children. Persaud uses Hopkins-developed ultrasensitive molecular tests that offer unmatched accuracy in detecting such viral hideouts.Persaud grew up in Guyana and came to the United States as a teenager. She received her medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine and completed a residency at Babies Hospital at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York, where she also served as chief resident. Persaud completed her fellowship at the New York University School of Medicine. She is the scientific chair of the HIV Cure Committee of the International Maternal, Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical (IMPAACT) network, a consortium of researchers and institutions that was critical in leading the earliest clinical trials of mother-to-child transmission and early treatment of infants 15 years ago. More than 300,000 HIV-infected babies are born each year worldwide despite ongoing efforts to prevent mother-to-child transmission in the first place. An estimated 34 million people worldwide, 3 million of them children, are currently living with HIV or AIDS.

What a feat! Congrats to Dr. Persaud!!!!

Guyanese Doctor Makes Time Magazine’s 2013 World List of ‘Top 100′ Influential People
24-04-2013, 07:10 | Category: All Gossip Sites | Author: Dumary

dr deborah persaud 1

Time Magazine recognized the pioneering work of Guyana-born Dr. Deborah Persaud and listed the HIV/AIDs expert in its annual world List of ‘Top 100’ Influential People!!

Persaud, a top researcher at Johns Hopkins Pediatric, was propelled into the spotlight in early March when she and colleagues Hanna Gay, M.D., of the University of Mississippi Medical Center, and Katherine Luzuriaga, M.D., of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, announced the first functional cure of HIV in an infant.

From News Americas Now:

A virologist and an infectious disease specialist, Persaud is being recognized for her research and clinical work in pediatric HIV and AIDS.

Time’s annual list, now in its 10th year, honors scientists, writers, politicians, economists, activists, innovators and artists whose work has inspired, changed or challenged their fields, according to the magazine. Past honorees include President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Johns Hopkins patient safety expert Peter Pronovost, M.D., the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, and satirist Stephen Colbert.

A functional cure occurs when a person is able to keep the virus at clinically undetectable levels over the long term even after stopping treatment. While Persaud and her colleagues cautioned the infant’s unusual case requires further study and people with HIV should not discontinue treatment, they also hailed it as a potential game-changer supporting the notion that very early treatment quashes the formation of the viral hideouts that make the virus impossible to clear. HIV’s ability to form such hideouts shortly after infection is one of the virus’s most vexing quirks and one that stymies cure. The newborn was treated with antiretroviral therapy unusually early, which the experts believe prevented the development of reservoirs and led to the child’s eventual functional cure. In contrast to a sterilizing cure — a complete eradication of all viral traces from the body — a functional cure occurs when viral presence is so minimal, it remains undetectable by standard clinical tests, yet may be discernible by ultrasensitive methods.

“Debbie Persaud’s work has sparked renewed interest in finding a cure for a disease that was some time ago chalked up as incurable,” says Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Director George Dover, M.D. “Her perseverance and passion have paid off and illuminated some new strategies to improve both prevention and treatment of pediatric HIV.” Even though Persaud’s work gained mainstream attention only recently, she has been active in the field of pediatric HIV for nearly two decades. Her research has focused on understanding some of HIV’s most complex behaviors, including its ability to mutate and to develop resistance to drugs.

Persaud’s other work has focused on strategies to prevent mother-to-child transmission in underdeveloped countries, where children have been hit the hardest.HIV is a daunting, shape-shifting virus in its ability to mutate quickly, Persaud says, and its tendency to form viral reservoirs and become impervious to both drugs and immune defenses not only hinder vaccine development, but also require periodic changes to the life-long treatment to ensure the virus is kept in check. The viral sanctuaries develop when HIV sets up camp in tissues and organs where the virus lies dormant for years. As soon as antiviral therapy is stopped, HIV emerges from hiding to reignite full-blown infection.“Solving these challenges will require a far more precise and far more profound understanding of the basic biology behind HIV’s most intricate maneuvers and the tricks it uses to highjack a child’s immature immune cells and linger on — that is the focus of my work,” Persaud says.Persaud spearheaded much of the early research in this field in the late 1990s and early 2000s by conducting some of the first studies of viral reservoirs in infected babies, children and teens at Johns Hopkins.

In fact, Persaud’s lab at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center is a world leader in the study of HIV reservoirs in children. Persaud uses Hopkins-developed ultrasensitive molecular tests that offer unmatched accuracy in detecting such viral hideouts.Persaud grew up in Guyana and came to the United States as a teenager. She received her medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine and completed a residency at Babies Hospital at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York, where she also served as chief resident. Persaud completed her fellowship at the New York University School of Medicine. She is the scientific chair of the HIV Cure Committee of the International Maternal, Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical (IMPAACT) network, a consortium of researchers and institutions that was critical in leading the earliest clinical trials of mother-to-child transmission and early treatment of infants 15 years ago. More than 300,000 HIV-infected babies are born each year worldwide despite ongoing efforts to prevent mother-to-child transmission in the first place. An estimated 34 million people worldwide, 3 million of them children, are currently living with HIV or AIDS.

What a feat! Congrats to Dr. Persaud!!!!
