Sean “Diddy” Combs is definitely a man of many talents. He has given new meaning to the word “Entrepreneur” having launched several thriving brands in his name over the course of his career.
One of his most profitable brands is his premium vodka “Ciroc”! Ciroc started out in 3 flavors (Red Berry, Blue Dot (original) & Coconut) & with the help of partner Atlanta superstar Jermaine Dupri was able to launch a fourth flavor (Peach) in late 2011.
The peach flavor definitely made a splash in the alcohol market because it was selling out in distributors all over the country. Apparently the success of the new peach flavor has sparked a new scam on the black market that could be potentially harmful to consumers.
By now everybody and their mama has seen the video of this dude called Fendi who is claiming he is responsible for making Nicki Minaj who she is today, as well as, he had some not so kind words to say about our favorite Manager/Mama Debra Antney.
Ms. Antney wasted no time in blasting this dude for his ridiculous rants and Hip Hop Enquirer got the exclusive on what she had to say.
â€œIf Fendi in fact had an issue with me or my associates Nicki Minaj or Brian â€œBabyâ€ Williams, making a video is not the proper forum to start a conversation. Just for the record Fendi did not discover Nicki Minaj, Bow Legged Lou and Anthony of the legendary group Full Force actually discovered Nicki Minaj. So letâ€™s be clear on one thing, Full Force birth her, I raised her and YMCMB married her and now she is a grown woman.â€
Â Looks like dude is trying to peddle his DVD so why not throw a little salt to up his sales anyway right? Funny part of the interview is that Antney said she would even buy one of the DVD’s if he needs the money that bad. Well one thing is for certain, she is not shy for words and if I were him, I would leave the “Suge Knight” of hip hop alone. Just saying.
Aretha Franklin wonâ€™t be getting fitted for that Vera Wang wedding gown after all. CourtneyLuv.com reported that Aretha called off her engagement to her longtime boyfriend. A statement released Monday by her representative said Franklinâ€™s wedding to Willie Wilkerson wasnâ€™t going to happen. I am a little confused. Aretha weren’t you all friends before dating? Just to think I was thinking about being the photographer at her wedding! LOL. Franklin said Wilkerson was the one for her and that the relationship was particularly strong because they had been friends first. â€œWeâ€™re very compatible, and he supports me and I support him a lot, and he has given me specialized attention that I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve received from anyone else,â€ she said. Come on ReRe get it together. He gave you R-E-S-P-E-C-T!
Miss PrincessÂ Blue Ivy Carter (Better known as IV) just arrived to this cold and mixed up world Saturday and the Media is Dangerously in love with the married couple’s 1st child…. or was it there second?
Jay-Z just revealed that Beyonce suffered a miscarriage before conceiving their daughter Blue Ivy.
The rapper dropped the bombshell in his newest song “Glory” — which he released today in honor of Blue Ivy’s birth this weekend — rapping, “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you’d disappear/But nah baby you magic.”
The song was produced by Pharrell — and even includes an audio sample of Blue Ivy crying just moments after she was born.
Among the proud fatherly lyrics — “The most amazing feeling I feel, words canâ€™t describe what Iâ€™m feeling for real / Baby, I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you.”
Expect the remix with Mr. West in a week or two… lol
A black church, New Beginnings Baptist Church, is theÂ owner of a building that was used as a KKK museum, “The Redneck Shop”.
It was a long legal battle. The interesting and also controversial end was ruled by a judge.Â According to sources, the ownership of the building was given to Rev. David Kennedy in 1997 by a Klansman who was fighting with others inside the group.Â The original ownership includedÂ John Howard, a KKK grand dragon for the Carolinas.Â Howard thought he would be able to legally operate his store inside the building for as long as he wanted.
After trying for years to have the property inspected, the Church finally took it to court back in 2008, three years prior to finally being ruled in their favor.
In this regard, Kennedy said that it has been a long time coming. “We knew we had done everything right. â€¦ The court knows that we have suffered,” he added. He also said that some of his congregation members are afraid to stand up for racial justice.Â Kennedy said to have told them that it was part of their faith to endure.
