TI On Chelsey Lately

This chick is HILARIOUS! Best TI interview ever!

Jay-Z, Rihanna & BeyBey Boycott BET Awards just got an INTERESTING piece of information - Jay Z, Rihanna and Beyonce were all INVITED to perform at the BET Awards. And according to our snitch they all said NO when they learned that Chris Brown would be performing.

The insider told,"Rihanna and Jay have tours coming up that they are having trouble selling - of course they needed the exposure." But the insider continued, "It was a matter of principal, if BET was willing to support Chris after what he did - that was THEIR BUSINESS. But [Rihanna Jay and Bey] were not going to have ANYTHING to do with the show."

Stripper Claims She was at MJ's House with Murray

TMZ has learned ... Joe Jackson's lawyer will interview a stripper who not only claims Dr. Conrad Murray was at a strip club hours before Michael Jackson died, but that she was at Michael Jackson's house after being invited by the doctor.

The stripper -- who claims she was working at Sam's Hof Brau on June 24, 2009 -- claims Dr. Murray was at the club drinking just before midnight.

Now we've learned Brian Oxman, who is repping Joe in his wrongful death lawsuit, has spoken with the stripper's "rep" who has scheduled a meeting. Among the topics -- the stripper claims weeks before Jackson died, Dr. Murray invited her to Jackson's home in Holmby Hills. She claims she went late one night -- after the club closed -- and Jackson was there, however he was in a deep sleep.

In Oxman's letter of intent to sue Dr. Murray, he accused the doc of drinking at Sam's Hof Brau before treating MJ.

Dr. Murray's reps have strongly denied he was at the club on June 24. And, they say, Murray doesn't drink.

Nicki Minaj Sounds Suspect
Nicki Minaj says she’s no bi-sexual! She spoke to Vibe Magazine and said "I don’t date women and I don’t have sex with women."

Ok Nicki, whatever you say!

He took care of it quickly like the good member of our community he is. He's not your typical rapper. He's not a troublemaker."

Luke continued, "When you get a check, the results of that check ends up where your sperm donation kids are online talking bad about you after you spent millions and millions dollars in child support." Daaayum, that’s deep!

Was Michael Jackson’s Voice Fake?
Biographer Ian Halperin is claiming that Michael Jackson spoke in a deep, masculine voice but faked the high-pitched one we're familiar with in public so that he could "act like a boy." Halperin says Jackson thought it was a way for the public to like him. Reverend June Gatlin, Michael's spiritual advisor, confirmed the report, too. "His voice was not high pitched. It was deep - a real man's voice." This in no way seems like a lie.

Did Coleman Issue a Restraining Order?

The papers say that she "has shown a tendency to damage, destroy and steal my property and I believe she will continue to do so in my absence and while she is trespassing in my home." Coleman added, "I believe if she is given any warning of this pending order to require her to immediately vacate the home, she will cause more damage and destroy more irreplaceable memorabilia, documents, personal papers and other such valuables. I would therefore ask the Court to issue this order ex parte requiring her removal." He was granted the restraining order on February 19th, but never served it. If he had, maybe things would have turned out different!

Anti-Rape Condom!

"A South African doctor has created a female condom that puts teeth in the fight against rape. Literally. The anti-rape condom, called "Rape-aXe," features rows of jagged hooks designed to attach to a man's penis during penetration. Once attached, the condom can only be removed by a doctor - hopefully when authorities can arrest him, Dr. Sonnet Ehlers, the condom's designer, told CNN. "It hurts, he cannot pee and walk when it's on," she said. "If he tries to remove it, it will clasp even tighter... however, it doesn't break the skin, and there's no danger of fluid exposure." Ehlers said she sold her house and car to launch the project, and she planned to supervise the distribution of 30,000 free devices in cities hosting the World Cup soccer matches. After the trial period, they'll be available for about $2 apiece, according to CNN." - CBS

Drake is still talking about Lil' Kim! This time it was an undercover insult. He said,"If you start talking about the people I love then I do get a little bit more reactive and that's all that happened here." He went on to say, "Nicki's got records climbing the charts and today Thank Me Later is in stores, so it's just about relevant people today." Take that, take that.

50 Cent To Get In The Ring
Well, 50 Cent is taking it to the ring! He's teamed up with Floyd Mayweather for an album project! He says it will be a compilation album.

You’re Hired! TI Has A New Job

T.I. has announced that he's the new spokesman for Remy Martin cognac. He said that he was recently approached by the company and he obliged. Hmmm, I wonder if he and Ludacris (who has his own brand of cognac) will start beefin!! Lol, well, I’m just saying, everyone else is!

Forget Beef, Jay-Z Wants G.O.A.T. Meat
Speaking of beef…Jay-Z opened a can of worms and apparently he’s fishing for a G.O.A.T. In his Rolling Stone magazine cover story he took a shot at LL Cool J. He said, "We've seen people like LL have longevity, and we respect the heritage of what he's done, but it's not like, right now, he's competing on the same level as Lil' Wayne." And they’ve had problems in the past, so I smell something cooking!

The iPhone Gets So Icey
Gucci Mane has joined the ranks of Lil Jon and T-pain, receiving his own iPhone app. Users will be able to see exclusive videos and content from Gucci as well as hear his signature catch phrases - "Burr," "It's Gucci" and "What it do!" No release date has been set yet!

Drake Shuts Down NYC

Drake's performance last night in New York was shut down by the police due to overcrowding. Promoters expected 10,000 people, but nearly 20,000 showed up! Drake said, "I am humbled by the crowd that showed up in support of my performance... but unfortunately the show was canceled by the NYPD due to overcrowding, leaving me without the chance to give my fans a real show." Dayum Drizzy, they said so it BIG…but not that BIG!!

More Family Business For Brandy & Ray J?
Brandy and Ray J plan to develop a sitcom. Brandy said "Right now we're just focusing on the Ray J and Brandy movement -- as a team. It's always been our dream to be like the new Donny and Marie [Osmond]." And on top of that, they plan on recording an album together! Brandy says one thing she won't do is "a reality show about finding love. You can't find love -- love finds you." Too bad Ray-J didn’t share that same thought! The season finale of Family Business airs June 27th.

Eminem: I Was Hours From Death
While promoting his Recovery album Eminem has revealed just how bad his battle with drug addiction was. He said, "[I] was certainly a couple of hours away from death," saying that he overdosed and almost died. It was at that point that he realized he needed to admit to himself that he had a problem. "It took me awhile to admit I actually did have a problem," Em said. "In the hip-hop world that I live in, it can be mistaken for weakness and the last thing you want to do in hip-hop is admit that you're weak. But if I didn't admit I was weak with this certain thing I was going to die." His new album is due out June 21st!

Randy Jackson Rushed to the Hospital
Randy Jackson - MJ's brother, not the American Idol guy - is reportedly okay after being rushed to the hospital yesterday. A family rep says that Jackson was taken to a Pasadena hospital after he suffered chest pains. There's no word on how long he'll be there, but the rep said it was just a precautionary move.

Joe Jackson Takes It Back
Joe Jackson has taken back what he said about Katherine Jackson “killing” Michael Jackson! Katherine for the death of their son. After MJ’s death last June, Joe said, he told Katherine, "this would have never happened if you had went and been with him." Katherine's lawyer, lawyers for Michael Jackson's estate, and others came to Katherine's defense, so of course he had to clean it up! Joe took his comments back on Monday. He said "Katherine did not kill my son, she isn't at fault."

Who’s Yo Daddy: The Tiger Woods Edition
Just when you thought the “Lil Cheetah” saga was finished, here comes another shocking allegation! According to an upcoming documentary “Tiger Woods: The Rise and Fall”, Tiger has a secret 5-year old daughter with his former mistress, 48-year-old Theresa Rogers. The documentary claims that there is DNA evidence that will prove that…Tiger Woods…You are the father!

Snoop Granted UK Visa!
Good news for Snoopy D-o-double-g! He can finally return to the U.K. after being banned in 2006 for fighting at Heathrow Airport. Snoop officially won the long legal battle in February after senior immigration judges determined that Snoop played a "relatively minor" role in the Heathrow incident. Snoop’s headed back to the U.K. to perform at the Glastonbury Festival that starts on June 23rd.

8 Cents And Counting: Diddy’s Adds His 2 Cents

I never thought that by me working with another artist that she would take it the wrong way... Nicki never did anything to her." He also said Kim’s anger could be caused by her being unsure about her comeback. "MCs, when they coming back out, a lot of times they like to talk crazy and do what they do... At the end of the day, everyone respects Kim for being the Queen Bee... But I ain't gonna make no apologies for working with Nicki Minaj."

Although he's still prepping for the release of his The Darkside album, Joey Crack's been cited for owing the government $139,000 in federal and state taxes.

In addition to the back taxes, he was also hit with a $71,611 mortgage bill from his bank for his $2 million Florida mansion that recently went up for sale.

After reviewing public records, The Detroit News reports that Joey took out a $250,000 mortgage with SunTrustBank four years ago but was sued by the institution in January.

SunTrust was awarded a default judgment of $71,611 and the $139,000 bill for the government is reportedly still pending.

Additionally the DN reports that the IRS filed a $31,987 tax lien against him in New Jersey in addition to a $2,200 tax lien the state filed against him and his Terror Squad Productions Inc.

Joe has yet to comment on his reported tax woes.

Kid Cudi Arrested
Kid Cudi was arrested in NYC and charged with felony criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance! Word is that Cudi took a 24-year-old woman’s phone and slammed it so hard it smashed into pieces. He also allegedly broke the door of her apartment off its hinges. Daaaaayyyyuuum! Cops arrived and found a glass bottle of a controlled substance. Hmmm…I wonder what it was! I’ll keep you posted!

Nicki Minaj’s Subliminal Shots
Lil' Kim has finally given of an explanation for her beef with Nicki Minaj. She said, "For the last year, she has been subliminally taking shots at me. Subliminally taking shots at the other girls in the industry... She said, 'Being that the other rap chicks in the game ain't got [nothing] to do right now, when I'm by the pool, they can feed me grapes'... I keep my ears to the street at all the time." She also took shots at Drake, calling him a p*&%y for coming at her!

Dre’s Chronic Flame is Ashed
A California judge has thrown out Dr. Dre's claims that Death Row's release of The Chronic Re-Lit violated his rights of trademark and publicity. Last week, Judge Christina Snyder applied the so-called Monty Python rule, after a 1976 case where a defendant extensively edited the comedy series to air it on television. Snyder ruled that unlike in the Monty Python case, the alterations to the new release were "minor and inconsequential." Snyder did allow Dre's claim that he hasn't been paid royalties on the album since splitting from Death Row in 1996.

Joe Jackson Blames Katherine For Michael’s Death
Michael Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson, blames MJ’s mother, Katherine Jackson, for his death! Hoe told Britain's News of the World he'd been telling Katherine for months to get MJ into drug rehab. He says, "If she'd done what I asked, Michael would be here today. I am incensed with her. She could have made a difference."

Who’s Yo Daddy: The Brian McKnight Edition
Miriam Lee filed paternity and child support documents in Orange County, FL last year claiming that Brian McKnight is the father of her 14-year-old son.
Because Brian never responded to the claims, the judge ruled that he is the father and he's been ordered to pay over $341,640 in back child support. Brian’s rep, said however, "The judgment in Florida was a default judgment made without Brian present." He's still looking to establish paternity, and is awaiting the results of a recent test." Maybe she should have taken him on Maury! Can you imagine…“Brian, you ARE the father!”

Cleveland Show Returning
Even though the second season hasn’t aired yet, Fox has renewed the third season of “The Cleveland Show,” the “Family Guy” spinoff! The upcoming “Cleveland” second season will feature guest voices Justin Timberlake, T-Pain, Tony Hawk, Snoop Dogg and the cast of “Glee.” I’m not a fan of the show, but those that are should be happy!

Box office Report
The Karate Kid kicked butt this weekend, brining in $56 million, more than double The A-Team's disappointing $26 million. And Shrek Forever After came in third with $15.8 million!

WTF Alert: REAL HIV Emergency in Virginia

Ladies and gentlemen, there is an UNOFFICIAL HEATH EMERGENCY going on in Virginia. has learned that police arrested an HIV POSITIVE Virginia prostitute for INTENTIONALLY having unprotected sex with THOUSANDS of Virginia men.

Here's how it all popped off. Last July two undercover police officers busted a 45 year old CRACKHEAD named Patricia Ann Curry for prostitution. During the bust, police realized that Patricia was willing to have UNPROTECTED SEX with the officers for $20.

After she was arrested, learned that police began questioning Patricia and were SHOCKED at what she admitted to. Patricia told detectives that she was diagnosed with HIV in 2007 and, since then, has had unprotected sex with about 50 people each month.. Using those numbers, she would have exposed more than 1100 MEN in Virginia to her DEADLY VIRUS.

But here is where the story gets even CRAZIER, Patricia wasn't even convicted of a SERIOUS CRIME. The judge found that there was INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE to put this woman in jail for ATTEMPTED MURDER. So they gave her azz a MISDEMEANOR - meaning that she might NOT GET ANY JAIL TIME!!

First off, ladies if you live in Virginia get yourselves CHECKED IMMEDIATELY!!! Also, make sure to EMAIL or FACEBOOK this article so that any of your girls in Virginia can know about this MESS!!

Second, this judge is OUTRAGEOUS. If you think that this decision is as OUTRAGEOUS as we do, let the judge know about it. He still hasn’t sentenced Patricia yet, so maybe we can get him to go HARD ON HER!!!

Gary Coleman's Ex Files New Will
This is just getting ridiculous! It’s like something out of a Lifetime movie! Gary Coleman's ex-wife Shannon Price has filed a new will in a Utah court, and not surprisingly, it leaves everything to her. It’s hand-written and dated September 4th, 2007. According to the alleged will, Coleman signed everything over to Price if he died! Mind you, it’s not signed! Price is also saying that she and Coleman were common-law husband and wife! Um, yeah, keep digging that hole…

Jada Puts Her Career on Hold to Help Willow
Jada Pinkett-Smith said she put aside her own music aspirations aside to help her daughter's singing career. Willow, Jada's 9-year-old, will be releasing an album soon. She started a metal band called Wicked Wisdom in 2002 but sacrificed it when her kids' careers started taking off. And of course Willow's older brother Jaden is starring in the remake of The Karate Kid, which came out today!

Diddy's Done With The Lavish Lifestyle
First Timbaland is trying to make organic music, now Diddy says that he's so over his lavish lifestyle. "People have this perception of me - which is my fault - of maybe a rapper or champagne-sipping and Hamptons and white fur and just cliché type of things that are just kind of old and dated and corny, which isn't how I am today, you know?" Diddy says that the image he created is old and now he wants to change it. "You evolve," he explained to the L.A. Times. "Like, I need to retire my diamond necklace and fur jacket now. Things change. Times change." I’m wit it…as long as he doesn’t break out the shiny suit as replacement for the fur coat! Take That, Take That!

New MoviesTHE A-TEAM (action) Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Gerald McRaney. The '80s TV series gets a rehash with a new gang of mercenaries.

The Lowdown for June 9, 2010

Slim Thug Says Black Women Ain’t Shizz!
Slim Thug probably should think before he speaks. He told Vibe Magazine, “It’s hard to trust a black woman because a lot of Black women’s mind frame is that a man gotta do everything for her.” He also said, “My girl is Black and White; I guess the half White in her is where she still cooks and do all the stuff I say, so we make it.” Sound to me like Slim Thug is an idiot! Moving on to important people…

Lauryn Hill’s Comeback
All you L. Boogie fans will be pleasantly surprised; she’s crawled out from under her rock and she’ll be hitting the stage soon! She’s officially joined the line up for the 7th Annual Rock the Bells Show.

50 Cent’s 2 Cents On The Barbie Beef
50 Cent chimed in with his 2 cents about the Barbie beef between Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj. He said he thinks Kim is more heated about the whole situation because Diddy is working with Nicki. He also took a dig Diddy, saying he’s working with Nicki and other artists because his music sucks right now! Sounds like more beef is on the way!

Mariah Gets Replaced

Is Kim Kardashian The Next Lara Croft?
Kim Kardashian may replace Angelina Jolie in the next Tomb Raider movie. Sources are saying Kimmy Cakes is at the top of the director’s list! Hmmm…That’s an interesting choice! We’ll see what happens.

Chris Brown’s Visa Declined
Well, Chris Brown’s visa has been declined! I’m not talking about his credit card, but his work visa to get into the UK. He was planning to perform over there, but that pesky felony assault conviction from last year is getting in the way. UK officials said, “We reserve the right to refuse entry to the U.K. to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offense!” Ouch! That’s gotta hurt!

More Drama Surrounding Gary Coleman’s Death
Gary Coleman’s ex-wife, Shannon Price has been kicked out of their Utah home, and she say’s its Gary’s former manager’s fault. She says she gave him some money to hire a lawyer because she wanted to make sure Gary’s wishes were respected…and all she got to show for it was to get kicked out of their house. Humm…Maybe that was what Gary wanted!

Is Allen Iverson Back In Love?
Word is that Allen Iverson and his wife Tawana are getting back together! Also, actress Tamala Jones was spotted looking real comfortable with Dallas Cowboys safety Ken Hamlin!

I’m Yasmin Young and that’s the Lowdown for today June 9th. For all the dirty dirty details tune in to The Maddhouse at 7:10 am.

She claims that Bart, one of the goons, and Bow Wow are best friends saying, “You even took a picture with him a day after the incident. How stupid could you be?” First Fab now Bow Wow…this chick is wreck less!

Sara Stokes Wants T-Pain To Buy More Than A Drink
T-Pain is being named in a lawsuit by Sarah Stokes. Remember her from Making the Band 2! Well, she produced and co-wrote two songs with Pain and says she ain’t been paid yet!

Gary Coleman’s Death: Accident or Foul play?
Well moving on to even more family drama, this whole situation surrounding Gary Coleman’s death and his ex-wife is just getting more and more suspicious. Shannon Price hired a production company to take pictures of Gary in his hospital bed while he was hooked up to a ventilation. Word is that at least one picture has been sold. And, his former manager is challenging Gary’s new will, saying Shannon is taking advantage of his death. His former manager says the new will from 2007 was declared null and void when Gary and Shannon got divorce. This whole thing just seems real suspicious! I’ll keep you posted!

Pregnant and not sayin!
B.S…humm, that reminds me of Mariah Carey. She can B.S. us all she wants but mama is pregnant. I just watched a video of her performing for the Wal-Mart shareholders and um either she better ask her trainer for one hell of a refund or just admit that it’s baby weight!

Blacks Are Being Blocked From Southern Juries Recent Study Shows

According to a recent study, Southern states have been excluding Blacks and other ethnic groups when selecting juries:
While jury makeup varies widely by jurisdiction, the organization, which studied eight Southern states — Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee — found areas in all of them where significant problems persist. In Alabama, courts have found racially discriminatory jury selection in 25 death penalty cases since 1987, and there are counties where more than 75 percent of black jury pool members have been struck in death penalty cases.

An analysis of Jefferson Parish, La., by the Louisiana Capital Assistance Center found that from 1999 to 2007, blacks were struck from juries at more than three times the rate of whites.

In North Carolina, at least 26 current death row defendants were sentenced by all-white juries. In South Carolina, a prosecutor said he struck a black potential juror because he “shucked and jived” when he walked.

Studies have shown that racially diverse juries deliberate longer, consider a wider variety of perspectives and make fewer factual errors than all-white juries, and that predominantly black juries are less likely to impose the death penalty.

Excluding jurors based on race has been illegal since 1875, but after Reconstruction, all-white juries remained the norm in the South.

“It really made lynching and the Ku Klux Klan possible,” said Christopher Waldrep, a historian at San Francisco State University and the author of a forthcoming book about a lawyer who was able, in a rare case, to prove jury discrimination in Mississippi in 1906. “If you’d had a lot of black grand jurors investigating crimes, it would have made lynching impossible.”

In one Mississippi case, a black man, Curtis Flowers, was sentenced to death in 2004 for killing four furniture store employees. The jury was made up of 11 whites and one black after prosecutors used all 15 of their peremptory strikes on black jurors. Montgomery County, where the crime occurred, is 45 percent black. The Mississippi Supreme Court reversed the case, noting that “racially motivated jury selection is still prevalent 20 years after Batson.”

At a retrial, in which prosecutors did not seek the death penalty, the jury of seven whites and five blacks was split along racial lines, resulting in a hung jury. At the second retrial, prosecutors sought the death penalty, which eliminated more blacks from the pool of qualified jurors. The jury, nine whites and three blacks, hung again when one black member declined to convict, said Andre De Gruy, the director of the state’s Office of Capital Defense Counsel.

The Equal Justice Initiative study argues that jury diversity “is especially critical because the other decision-making roles in the criminal justice system are held mostly by people who are white.” In the eight Southern states the study examined, more than 93 percent of the district attorneys are white. In Arkansas and Tennessee, all of them are white.
