I hate to say this but I can’t stop watching Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. The first episode had me thinking the show was scripted. However with all the drama I see around my friends and on the news anything is possibly so I keep tuning in every week.
On the show, Karlie Redd has been in the spotlight lately not for her talents, but the drama that starts with her. Every episode she comes across as an instigator and a liar. Up until this week’s episode we didn’t really hear any of her music (if that’s what you want to call that singing she did for Stevie J…smh).
Instead of getting her music career on the fast track she seems to be pissing everybody off. Every argument she gets in her age comes in to play. Joseline has mentioned Karlie is 40 while K. Michelle has even gone to say that the aspiring rapper/singer managed by Cash Money is 50 years old and is applying for an AARP card.
This has us all wondering:
How old is she?
Karlie Redd stopped by 93.9 WKYS to talk to Coka-Lani where she didn’t specifically give her age away but mentioned she was around 29 years old.
Scream Queens 2 was filmed around 2009 so she technically could have been thirty at the time. I don’t understand why she won’t reveal her age? Maybe she thinks it’s going to hurt her career. I don’t know if she knows this but I am sure that being on this show isn’t helping. We shall see as the season goes on.
Love and Hip Hop Atlanta airs every Monday at 9pm/8pm central on VH1 and new episodes are added online at VH1.com
Nicki Minaj has disappeared from over her 11 million followers on Twitter. On Sunday the YMCM rapper deleted her acount from the social network after a beef between her and her number one fan site NickiDaily.com . Apparently the site leaked her music off of her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Feeling disrespected, Minaj blocked them from her twitter page sparking a war going back and forth between the two and fans to take sides.
The responses she got from some of her fans may not have been a positive one because then she tweeted “And that’s exactly why I’m paying the barbz DUST right now! And deleting my twitter. Smdh – don’t cry 4 me Argentina.
Now I don’t know if it’s from the criticism of her album or what but I know Nicki couldn’t take something anymore. It seemed like she was having a mini meltdown on twitter. What I do know is that she has 30 days to reactive her account or she will lose all of her followers permanently. Maybe she can start over with some happy Barbz and not some hater/jealous Skippers! 🙂
I’m going to be honest. I wasn’t really feeling some of the songs on the album but you can’t lie: They are catchy. Sometimes I find myself saying the hook to”Beez in the Trap” from time to time. I guarantee you have heard her music everywhere especially since she has a different song that can fit with any genre of music for any type of radio station. I am waiting for her to make a country music debut.
Let’s just hope she calms down.
Side note: Keyshia Cole and Havoc from Mobb Deep have also recently deactivated their accounts.
I have a confession. I am a YouTube junkie. I love to see funny videos. They make up for my “lack of cable” in my apartment (The Diary of a College Student!). I came across a few that are hilarious .
I can’t stop giggling at all the videos I see by Deshawn Raw. The first one I saw was the rap battle parody with Mr. Supa Hot Fire who is “not a rapper” dominating the battle for a win. After that I had to keep clicking. His skits are hilarious. He hails from California. He has the cutest accent and face too. You just want to pinch his cheeks! To see more his videos click here.
Who knew you could keep it real and still be hilarious? @SpokenReasons that’s who. My friend showed me a video about his view on people’s extended facebook names and I was hooked. From Soulja Boy to Amber Cole, he addresses issues that make you laugh and think at the same time. I like his style of delivery as well. One person. One camera. Great editing. I could not stop laughing at the Soulja Boy parady though. As you watch, peep the BET tattoo! That was the touch that got me. See more of his videos here.
For all the men in the barber shops chatting about hopes to be with Ms. Berry, think again! Halle Berry is engaged to wed Oliver Martinez as stated in the Huffington Post. He proposed to Berry with a beautiful diamond and emerald ring during the holiday season. Martinez is a French actor who met Berry while filming “Dark Tide.” According to US weekly, they began dating in 2010.
Third Time is the Charm! 🙂
Berry has been married twice before, first to baseball player David Justice in 1993 and then to R&B singer Eric Benet in 2001. She has a three year old daughter, Nahla, from her previous relationship of five years to model Gabriel Aubry. Martinez previously dated Kylie Minogue.
Tonight was the premiere of season five of “The Game.” Usually the show is great, but tonight it really kept me on my toes! It was full of so twists and turns. Jason got married. Malik is in love with a drug addicted model. Melanie had an abortion. Derwin punched Tre. Say what???
I don’t know about your twitter, but my timeline was filled with commentary on the show. I can’t wait for next week’s episode.
Nick Cannon might be able to leave the hospital today. According to the L.A. Times Blog, Cannon was in the hospital for kidney failure while vacationing in Aspen, Colorado earlier last week. He was transferred to an undisclosed hospital in L.A. where he had surgery that required no sedation.
Mariah Carey has been there every step of the way for her man. Queen MiMi posted a picture of her laying by her man’s side (literally) on her official website a few daysalong with a few thoughts about the situation her husband is going through.
“We’re trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful.” Mariah writes. “They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C.” No cause of the kidney failure has been reported.
Thanks to Rihanna, everyone now has confirmation that Beyonce has given birth last night and not earlier this week as it has been falsely reported. Rihanna tweeted earlier, “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih.” for all her fans to see.
Beyonce and Jay-Z now have a baby girl by the name of Blue Ivy Carter according to The New York Daily News. It is reported that the couple paid almost $1.3 million to rent out an entire floor at Lenox Hill Hospital. They also mentioned that employees were forced to hand over their cell phones as they showed up for their shift andsecurity cameras were covered with tape to maintain the couple’s privacy.
According to the NY Daily and several other press outlets, a staff member of the hospital claims Beyonce checked in the hospital as “Ingrid Jackson” for a scheduled c-section.
It’s finally 2012. January 1st is the day when we all say we are going to change something about ourselves then three days to three months later some of us start slacking. Let’s try to keep up to good work this year.
Don’t make a resolution. Be like Nike’s old motto and “Just do it!”
What are your goals? Do you plan to stick with it (them) all year?
Just when you thought that the Bieber drama ended, Mariah Yeater is back again. Though she has dropped her lawsuit with Justin Bieber, she is still demanding a paternity test outside of court.
“I dropped my lawsuit, but never my claim. I still definitely want a DNA test and I want to refile my paternity case — I do believe he is the father,” Yeater told the Chicago Sun-Times.
Last year Yeater claimed she conceived her son, Tristyn Anthony Markhouse Yeater, with Justin Bieber after a 30 second fling with the pop star at his October, 25 2010 concert at the Staples Center.
In November, when speaking up about the allegations on The Today Show, Bieber said “I know I’m going to be a target, but I’m never going to be a victim. It’s crazy, every night after the show I’ve gone right from the stage right to my car, so it’s crazy some people want to make up such false allegations. But to set the record straight, none of it is true.”
Another person claiming that Yeater is lying is her ex-boyfriend Robert Powell.He claims that baby Tristyn is his, not Bieber’s. He told RumorFix, “She lied.” This was a scheme for them both to make money for their child.“She just picked him, because she thought he was famous and all and thought she could get a lot of money by telling the magazine Justin was the father. She just saw him as an opportunity to make a lot of money,” She sold her story to a tabloid for $50,000. She has still not put down a name for a father on her son’s birth certificate either leaving everything a mystery.
Maybe the late Michael Jackson was right. Some people will do anything for money…
Another auto-tune record is out by a “Housewives” star.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Sheree Whitfield is keeping her relevance with a song titled “Who Gon’ Check Me boo,” her catchphrase from last season after an incident with her party planner. However the song seems to be directed towards co-star Linnethia “NeNe” Leakes.
If you tuned in for the first episode of season four, the two seem to have severed all ties with each other as Sheree went below the belt with Leakes over a club appearance. References to Leakes’ teeth and income are mentioned in the song.
The single is on sale at iTunes for 99 cents.
I’m not down for people over 40 making diss records, but if NeNe makes a response I am hoping for the title to be called “I’m Very Rich Bitch!”
