Yung Berg's Chain?

First off, for those of you who don't know Yung Berg's chain was stolen months ago and it seems to have made it's way around to quite a few people. The story is so confusing it's hard to really comment on it. Above is a performance from rappers Trick Trick and Royca Da 5'9 and guess what? They have Berg's chain! I just think it's amazing how this chain is just going around from person to person.

So It's Like That Now Mary J and Jay-Z?

Well it seems like Mary J Blige and Jay-Z are in the hot seat for stealing a beat. Jermaine Jumpp and Michael C. Adams have accused them of taking the beat for Mary J's hit single "Enough Cryin". They have now filed a lawsuit against Mary J and Jay-Z. Jumpp and Adams claimed that they gave Rodney "Darkchild" Jenkins who was the producer on Blige's album "The Breakthrough" a disk titled "On My Grind" back in 2001 which later appeared on The Breakthrough as "Enough Cryin". What does Jay-Z have to do with all this? He was a co writer on the song, so yes his ass is getting sued too!

That's crazy, "Enough Cryin" was my jam!

Whitney Houston Sued!

For some reason every time Whitney Houston is in the news it's never really about anything positive. Multiple sources report that her father had a 1 million dollar insurance policy which Houston's step mother (Barbara Houston) says that she improperly kept. Houston was suppose to take 723,000 of the money from the insurance policy and pay off her father's mortgage on his Fort Lee Condominium. Whitney has not returned the remainder of the money to her stepmother which she is now being sued for.

Well what can I say the typical life of Whitney Houston.

A few months ago the video of Soulja Girl on the Atlanta Marta train taunting a 65 year old women was circulating all over the internet. The video was just filled with craziness!

The latest news currently is that all charges have been dropped agains Soulja Girl who's real name is Nafiza Ziyad who is bipolar and may have been having one of her "episodes" that day on the train. Well I definitely hope that she gets the help that she so desperately needs. I have included the video of the entire event below just in case you've never seen it.

Will Kelly Rowland Split From Under Matthew Knowles Management?

It seems like Kelly Rowland is thinking about kicking manager Matthew Knowles to the curb for American Idol producer Simon Fuller! Unlike in the U.S. in Europe Kelly is a huge star. She topped the charts in Europe with her last album titled "Ms Kelly" and the re release "Ms Kelly Deluxe" also went straight to the top. Simon Fuller is the current manager of artists such as the Spice Girls, Carrie Underwood, Victoria Beckham and David. It is said that the change may take place at the beginning of next year.

I am so proud of Kelly. It's about damn time! Her last album was amazing and everyone slept on it, great album! No disrespect to Beyonce because she's an amazing artist but Kelly has been stuck in the shadow of Beyonce her entire career. Kelly is beautiful, talented and has the same potential but she is completely overlooked. Oh please let's not forget her album being pushed back for the release of Beyonce's album B-Day! In my opinion breaking away from Matthew Knowles is the best decision to make as far as her career is concerned. I've never liked Matthew Knowles every since back in the day when Latoya and Latavia were kicked out of the group and he tried to cover the shit up saying they left on their own. At the end of the day under the Knowles management it's all about Beyonce. Now Kelly really has a chance to spread her wings and show the world what she really has to offer, good for her.

Hudson Murders Seem Too Suspicious

In recent news William Balfour who is married to Jennifer Hudson's sister(Juila Hudson) has been charged for the murders of Hudson's mother, brother and nephew. According to the Associated Press Balfour has a very troubling past. He is said to be a high school drop out and has been arrested for possession of marijuana many times in the past dating way back to 1996. He married Juila Hudson back in December of 2006 and the marriage has went down hill since then.

I have been following this on going story every since it started and something just doesn't seem right to me. I honestly believe that Balfour was not the one who did the killings and if by any chance he was involved he definitely had some help. The whole situation is just was too suspicious and Jennifer's sister Juila she seems a bit suspicious also. Sooner or later the truth will come out because I think someone knows more than what they are telling the police and investigators.

Solange Wants To Adopt

R&B singer Solange Knowles is talking adoption and finding a new man. Solange already has a son Daniel Jr. With ex husband Daniel Smith which she divorced in October 2007. In a statement from Solange she says, "If there are two people devoted to nourishing and growing and developing their love for a child that is a beautiful thing. Kelly grew up with me since I was about five years old, so she is my sister. She didn't come from my parents, but there is nothing I feel differently for her than my sister. I have definitely explored that option. But I've got to find a man first!"

Solange has also stated that she would even like to have more children of her own.
