Beyonce' Gets a Ticket for Texting and Driving

Bitchie Life reports Beyonce was recently pulled over by the NYPD for driving while texting.

And if you think her global star status got her off, guess again. The 29-year-old singer was slapped with a $100 ticket.

A source revealed the ticket was particularly embarrassing for Beyonce because she just received her driver’s license. An insider on the scene said the multi-platinum recording artist attempted to charm the cop claiming she had no idea texting while driving was illegal. Really Bey?

Oprah, a close friend to the Carters is certainly not going to be pleased about this. The ‘talk show queen’ has been urging celebs to sign her ‘No Texting While Driving’ contract. Seems Beyonce may be getting a call from O very soon.


Michael Jackson's Hidden Love Child?

From TMZ:
A woman who claims to be Michael Jackson’s illegitimate love child — conceived when MJ was a minor — has filed legal documents claiming there was a diabolical plot to cover up her existence … involving murder, abduction and Diana Ross’ sister.

The alleged MJ spawn — Mocienne Petit Jackson — has filed documents with L.A. County Superior Court claiming she will surely be in line for a serious inheritance check … if a judge will give the go-ahead on a DNA test.

Here’s the story — MPJ claims back in 1975, 17-year-old Michael Jackson secretly impregnated her mother Barbara … who happens to be Diana Ross’ sister.

MPJ claims when she was 9 years old, Katherine Jackson hatched a plan to “abduct” MPJ and send her to Belgium to protect Michael’s “reputation.” She claims all 7 of her abductors were later murdered.

Now MPJ — who currently lives in the Netherlands — has decided to come forward with her story … so she can “formally claim my part of my father’s inheritance.” She also wants custody of MJ’s kids so she can give them a “more normal life.”

MPJ also claims she was diagnosed with Vitiligo … so, there’s that.

Calls to Diana Ross, Barbara Ross and MJ’s camp have not been returned.

Trina feat. Git Fresh & Flo Rida - White Girl (VIDEO)

Trina wants to get Loose and party like a “White Girl” according to her new video featuring Flo Rida and Git Fresh. Ok so this song has gotten some controversy lately in blogs and other media outlets. Party like a White Girl? C'mon now. If Katy Perry or Britney Spears or hell even the Pussycat dolls came out with a song called "Black Girls" people would be up in arms and causing a fuss. I Know the song does not say anything racist against 'white girls' but just the fact that it is labeled with the title 'White girls' I do like the song I think it is catchy and with Flo rida on the track, with his overly commercial sound, I think this is a gonna get heavy play in clubs. Perhaps the radio, but I can't imagine it going too long without someone saying something. The video is ok and I think Trina really is trying to get back on the map. What do you think about the song? Peep the video and leave a comment whether you are a 'White Girl' or not. White girls do be gettin it in though, :).The song is the third single off of Trina’s new album “Amazing”

Usher feat. Jay-Z & Ester Dean – “Hot Toddy” (Explicit)

On August 24, Usher releases the follow up to his successful Raymond vs. Raymond, the Versus EP. The Jay-Z featured track has been talked about for minute now though. Earlier today, the radio rip of the Polow Da Don produced track made its rounds on the Internet. Here’s the explicit version. Jay continues his run of impressive guest verses with another one here (and another Illuminati mention for those who care about that stuff) andEster Dean plays substitute until the final version with Ciara is released.

For those wondering what hot toddy is,it’s a drink (cider) that is severed hot and mixed with alcohol. Depending on who you ask, many believe it helps cure the cold and/or flu.

Rihanna to star in "Battleship"

Rihanna to Star in "Battleship"

According to Variety, pop princess Rihanna will make her feature film debut in Battleship, an upcoming big-budget action film based on—you guessed it—the Hasbro board game. No word on what role the Bajan chanteuse will play; though she’ll likely be the love interest of either co-star Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood) or Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), I secretly hope she’ll be a gun-toting badass in the vein of Ripley or Sarah Connor.

The film is being directed by Peter Berg (Hancock) and will be shot on the Hawaiian isle of Oahu in September or October.

Rihanna is currently sitting on top of the Billboard Hot 100 with “Love the Way You Lie,” her collaboration with Eminem from the rapper’s hit album Recovery. Perhaps we’ll get a glimpse of Ri-Ri’s acting chops in the song’s accompanying video, which should premiere sometime this week.

Lauryn Hill Comeback!! [Repercussions]



Are you still craving the soulful sounds of Lauryn Hill? Then get ready to be rewarded. After eleven years, and with only mere cameos to her credit, the former lead singer of the Fugees is hinting at a possible return to the industry that launched her into superstardom.

Hill basically revealed as much to NPR during one of her rare interviews, during which she also helped to clear the air about her disappearance from music: “There were a number of different reasons. But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it.”

She’s been seen touring lately, most recently playing at Santa Rosa, California’s Harmony Festival. Her five children are older now, which Hill claims is a reason she’s been performing more often. “The youngest is 2 now, so she’s old enough that I can leave her for a period of time and know she’s going to be OK. That’s one reason. And I think it’s just time. I’m starting to get excited again.” She also noted her desire to start recording again.

Christina Milian Says She Was Divorced & Cheated On While Pregnant

This February, Christina Milian gave birth to her daughter, Violet. She was recently spotted in a park working off the weight she gained during the pregnancy. I should say worked it off - past tense. Clearly, there isn’t an ounce that isn’t in the right places. Makes you wonder what The-Dream was thinking when he divorced her.

Oh yeah, it’s back to that story. Last week, Christina Milian filed papers in a Georgia court asking that a judge throw out their divorce papers.

In a reverse spin of The-Dream’s claim that their marriage quietly ended just six months after the ceremony, Christina Milian says their bondwasn’t irretrievably broken. Actually, the recent discovery of The-Dream’s relationship with another woman revealed that he was having an affair - that’s what deaded the marriage.

I hear that and think, cha-ching, ‘someone wants a couple of checks.’ Could be. You know what? Within reason, I don’t blame her. In the papers filed with the court, Christina Milian says that she waived any alimony rights. However, she wasn’t in the right frame of mind to make the decision, because it was nine days before she gave birth.


Think about that. The-Dream handing a pen and divorce papers to Christina, while she’s sitting there with a bulging belly, on the verge of popping out their kid. Even if their problems were sparked by Christina going Keke Wyatt on him, you would think he could wait until - at minimum - her water had broken. That’s a dirt bag move.

And again I ask, what was The-Dream thinking when he divorced her?

Maybe, during the course of a day, Christina Milian is a complete pain the ass - extra annoying. I think it’s simpler than that: The-Dream is going Stevie, you know, blind.

Evidence has revealed there is nothing that couldn’t have been worked out between them.

I give you..

His swag was undeniable and her unconditional love was what he was seeking. He approached her with his charm and after conversation he walked away knowing that this princess would one day become his queen.

Alicia Keys’ Former Management: Rip Off Reports Untrue, “We Never Had A Contract” Read more: Alicia Keys’ Former Management: Rip Off Reports Untrue,

Alicia Keys album release party - Jeff Robinson

Earlier today the New York Post published an article stating the reason Alicia Keys split with her long-time manager Jeff Robinson was because he ripped her off. According to their sources, Jeff had been charging Alicia 25% commission and upward of 33% during the beginning stages of her career. The norm for a manager is between 15-20%. Their source also goes on to say “Swizz Beatz definitely played a huge part in killing him off. She got smart — and got a smart boyfriend — after years of people around her telling her she was crazy to let this continue to happen”

We placed a call over to Alicia Keys MBK Entertainment and was told:

That story is 100% false. Jeff Robinson was like a father figure to Alicia Keys. They never had a contract. It was a huge deal because Jeff loves her like she was his own kid! This whole article reeks of damage control and its obvious. How can you rip someone off when you don’t have a contract and they can walk away whenever they want?”

They also went on to point out that Jeff Robinson has been her manager for almost 15 years and if she was getting ripped off, she would have walked away from the relationship a long time ago.

As previously reported, sources claim that Swizz Beatz played a role in Alicia firing her entire glam squad and he has also been taking an active role as her manager. When we reached out to Swizz Beatz he claimed those rumors are “not true”. “I don’t have time to fire anybody. I’m super busy working on a million things.” He also added “People must accept change and move on.”



[New Music] Jay Sean ft. Nicki Minaj - 2012



And here we go again, another potential hit record featuring Nicki Minaj. This time, they're keeping it in the family with Cash Money artist, Jay Sean.

"2012" is nothing more and nothing less than a party record for dance clubs all over the world. Like an updated version of Prince's "1999", Jay and Nicki are singing and rapping around the idea that in two years, the world is going to end and therefore one must party like the world is going to end. Nicki, for all the work she gives to other people's songs, sounds particularly excited to be on this record, and as always we're more than excited to hear her. Her rapid flow is as crisp as ever, even though it's light on the quoteworthy lines we've grown used to. Still, this song right here (this song right here!) a smash. All day.

M.I.A. on Oprah & Lady GaGa


M.I.A. Had some choice words about Oprah and particularly Lady Gaga. This isn't the first time she has vocally expressed her opinions about the "Fame Monster" This is what M.I.A. recently had to say.

M.I.A:

‘…Oprah seemed like she was giving me the cold shoulder. She was with Iman (Bowie). Iman was always dancing with me, hugging and kissing me, but Oprah seemed really pissed off with me. Also she made this huge speech at the ball praising Lady Gaga and about how she (Lady Gaga) is helping Americans to be the best of themselves. There’s millions of other Americans who represent that for me. Is (it) about numbers? About how much you’re selling? Is it truly about the journey? Because (Lady Gaga’s) journey isn’t that difficult: to go from the fucking Upper East Side to a fucking performing arts school and on to a stage at the museum of fucking wherever. That journey’s about four miles.’

She is sounding a bit sour at this point. I am a fan of both artists and they both have unique sounds and I don't think there is any need to hate.

Swizz Beatz: Wedding Details




Earlier this week, reports circulated the internet suggesting that Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz would be getting married this coming weekend in the Caribbean. OK! Magazine caught up with Swizz who claims those rumors are false, but he will be getting married to Alicia Keys very soon. Via GG

Swizz Beatz On The Wedding Date
Well its not this weekend!” Swizz Beatz says. ”But you know, were excited. Our union is amazing. Our union is pure. Our union is positive no matter what people say or what people think, time will tell everything and you know, silence is the best thing. We just keep it private and we do our thing and just have fun with it.

On Planning The Wedding
“Yeah, you know, I’m a planner!” he tells OK!. ”I like getting into the detail of things. I’m inspired by fashion, I’m inspired by art, I’m inspired by architectural things so [I like] being involved with the wedding. I’m not the person who sits back and goes, okay, well I’ll just show up. I’m actually spearheading certain plans but it’s a nice blend, a nice partnership.”

On The Wedding Not Being A Gimmick

“Just an amazing day,” he says. “Very intimate. It’s not a superstar wedding. It’s not a gimmicky wedding. It’s a true bond of love, you know, that’s not based on having the most famous person sitting there while you’re doing it. It’s about having the closest people who really understand you as a person and that really have love for you. So it’s a small situation.”

On the New Baby
“I’m very excited about that! Children, you know, they’re a blessing and I’m very excited.” And his older children feel the same way. “They’re excited as well. We keep the energy positive. Everything surrounding kids should always be positive. That’s the number one rule.”

He also reveals that he is working with Coldplay and Lenny Kravitz and he will be dropping a single with Mary J Blige later this summer.

Christina Aguilera's new Video: You Lost Me



Treating fans to a brand new music video, Christina Aguilera debuted her latest creation in "You Lost Me" on Thursday morning (July 22).

From her recently released Bionic album, the singer/actress showed off her vocals in the power ballad while offering up a tamer, softer look.

The video release comes amidst questions as to whether her latest album release was blundered.

With Christina having pushed back her accompanying tour, sales were rather low despite the album receiving high acclaim from critics/fans.

The Dream filed for divorce before Christina gave birth




I don’t know what’s worse, getting caught in the Caribbean with your (NASTY) assistant when you are supposed to be married, or people finding out that you filed for divorced from your child’s mother right before she gave birth. SMH…

According to TMZ, The Dream filed for divorce in February, just 9 days before Christina Milian gave birth to their daughter Violet. The court documents state that the marriage was “”Irretrievably broken” and there is no hope for reconciliation. The document also states that the two, who were married on September 4, 2009, separated prior to the divorce filing and are currently living in a “bona fide state of separation”.I guess my theory of this being a huge publicity stunt is almost out of the window but best believe someone ordered up them paparazzi photos and it might have been a scorned wife :)

Now that we’ve learned that the Dream filed for divorce before he was caught “so-called” cheating, Is he now off the hook? Click the jump to check out the divorce papers
