As if we didn’t already assume this , in Sunday's episode of Oprah's Master Class: Special Edition on OWN, Jay-Z opened up about his baby daughter and how he intends to spoil her rotten!
The 43-year-old rapper and entertainment mogul hasn’t opened up much about his new life as a father. But on the show he admitted to Oprah Winfrey that he worries over his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's luxurious upbringing.
"Well, I mean, everyone imagines they'll be a great dad," he confided."Until they're teenagers and they're saying, 'Get away from me, Dad. You're embarrassing me!' Right? Everyone imagines that, right?"
Over the weekend, Drizzy and Tyra Banks were spotted on a low-key ‘date’ at Disneyland as well as Tyra’s favorite yogurt spot, Yogurtland. Tyra and Drake are seen in fan photos, riding a roller coaster and grabbing a snack.
Tyra went super casual, with little makeup, jeans and a t-shirt paired with a jacket, while Drake appeared to be sporting a a cap, glasses, and fake mustache in some of the pics.
Unfortunately, Drake left a bad impression on one of the employees who tweeted:
“Thanks to my coworker & I Drake and Tyra got hooked up with Yogurtland tonight …He didn’t deserve it though” and continued “I told Tyra she was pretty & she said thanks & my co worker told drake he was cute & he didn’t say anything just turned his head.” He also told the employee not to take pictures. Of course Drake wasn’t nice. He didn’t want them to blow his cover and get caught creeping!
Wiz is very open about his stoner ways so it’s no surprise the rapper was ticketed for possession of marijuana after his concert in Winston-Salem last night.
Officers discovered 11.39 grams of pot after searching the rapper and his tour bus. That’s a lot of Khalifa kush! Wiz was cited and released, and is required to appear in court at a later date.
On April 21 Wiz was caught with weed in Nashville after cops received complaints about a strong odor of marijuana at a local Holiday Inn. When officers arrived to the scene, they found none other then Wiz Khalifa just finishing up a joint. Wiz allegedly tossed the "marijuana cigarette" out of the window. Most people would have done that before opening the door for a stranger, let alone a cop. That probably wasn’t his best high-dea.
Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias have announced their concert tour! Now that it's in the works the big issue is, who gets top billing?!
Lopez's manager, Benny Medina, tells TMZ, "Neither Jennifer nor Enrique care who opens or closes. What we want to do is give the fans the best show possible and whatever that means, that's what we will do." As for who opens and who follows, Medina tells TMZ it hasn't been worked out yet, but it won't be a problem.
Why is this so interesting? Because not too long ago, top billing was all Enrique cared about. Enrique even bailed on the Britney Spears’ concert tour for the same issue about a year ago!
Emily B. took to her Twitter account to say...
“There will be a 3rd Season of #loveandhiphop NY but I will not be a cast member. The show was a great experience.. Thank you Mona and Stefan.”
A few moments later she hinted that there may be an other project in the works...
“But…. You won’t miss me for long ;) hmmm.. #Vh1”
On Love and HipHop, Emily was portrayed as the sad single mother who just wanted her baby father to step up and put her and their family first. From season one to season two we watched Emily grow into an independent lady with goals that didn’t revolve around her and rapper Fab’s relationship. Recently Fabolous and Emily have been spotted out together publicly acting like a real couple! So it looks like she finally may have gotten what she wanted.
Last Wednesday marked the 10 year anniversary of the death of TLC's Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. TMZ is now reporting that her former band mates are planning a special tribute of their own.
Following a well-received performance of an eerily realistic digital Tupac created via CGI at Coachella music festival, the group's rep says TLC is currently in the planning stages of a 2012 reunion tour in the states that digitally incorporates deceased member 'Left Eye' into the show. A tour including 'Left Eye' is just one example of the new trend of deceased artists coming back to perform virtually. Other artists who have been rumored to make a hologram comeback are Notorious B.I.G and Michael Jackson.
Liz Taylor fans all over the world are upset by LiLo being cast as the star of Lifetime's Liz and Dick. In fact, the only people who seem happy with the decision are Lindsay and the movie's producers.
Amongst these unhappy people is former talk show host Rosie O’Donnell. To Lindsay's surprise Rosie spoke out yesterday on The Today Show claiming to be disturbed at the idea of Lindsay playing the role of film icon, Liz Taylor. She also thinks the star needs to spend time putting her life back together before worrying about her career.
And this nasty divorce keeps getting nastier!
On Monday the Hall of Famer tweeted that his estranged wife attacked him in front of their kids saying, “Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She’s going to jail n I’m pressing charges!” He also posted a photo of himself with two of his sons, ages 10 and 12, filling out police reports, which he later removed from the site.
Pilar was arrested a few hours after the incident, in which Deion claims she and a friend jumped him. Though Deion got a $500 ticket for the incident, Pilar didn't get off as easy. She was arrested and posed for a mug shot. Pilar was booked for the misdemeanor "assault family violence."
Well… doesn’t look like the Kardashians are going anywhere anytime soon.
Sources tell TMZ that the Kardashian Klan have signed a new $40 million dollar deal with E!. This deal guarantees them more seasons with the channel making it the biggest deal ever in reality TV.
Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kris and Bruce will get the larger share of the money, and they are each getting equal pay. Kendall, Kylie and Rob will also be paid equally, on a lower pay grade. Scott Disick and his son Mason have a separate deal and the same goes for Lamar, who hammered out a package deal to appear in both "Khloe and Lamar" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
This contract only includes the already existing shows, so if Kim and new beau Kanye plan on getting a spin off show, they would need to work out a new contract for even MORE money!
This $40 million deal also does not include product endorsements, appearances, and any other items associated with the show that Kim and the rest of the gang are able to get their money-grubbing fingers on.
Young Money star Drake insists he lives very cautiously and ensures he always takes precautions to keep his reckless behavior private. Ironically in the same interview with NME magazine he reveals that he actually collects and owns his personal sex tapes. According to Drizzy, although rather risky, he's smart enough to keep his x-rated footage in his own possession.
The 25-year-old rapper who has previously been linked to Rihanna, Serena Williams, and a bunch of strippers he put on the map, insists his naughty business will never slip out. "I don't live recklessly. I don't have skeletons in my closet. It's not necessarily me covering it up or trying to be defensive, I just don't do the dumb s**t in the first place to get in trouble. If I'm drunk, I'mma go out the back door. I ain't gonna walk out the front so you see me stumbling and dropping my keys. I'm not that guy, I'm not that dumb. I wanna be in this position as long as I possibly can. I mean, I will be honest, any sex tape I've ever made, I own it," Drake revealed in the interview with NME.
