Celebrity Events Archives

My boy Ludacris did it big tonight at the Morehouse College Forbes Arena for the Celebrity Basketball game as a part of Luda Day Weekend. This year’s Luda Day Weekend has been bigger than it’s ever been and I’m waiting to see what they got planned for next year. It was also the best I’ve been too…and I been comin since they started. Luda also released his new line of headphones…I’m waiting on my pair and a few for those FreddyO fans.

Raising $10,000 for Morehouse College, Team Ludacris (red) and Team Bieber (blue) battled it out for 90 minutes with Team Bieber comin out on top.

The crowds and crowds of people came out to see the star-studded event. READ MORE

Justin Bieber came out to the Celebrity Basketball Game at Morehouse College and showed Ludacris crazy love. While he didn’t lead the team in points, he held his own against the likes of Carmelo Anthony and Wale.

Justin also brought out a lot of his fans, making this year’s crowd the most diverse I’ve seen!

Justin who is one of the world’s biggest celebrities, came down here with minimum security and it’s funny how he can come down here and you have no-name rappers that be coming with 20 and 40 security guards. Hint hint: rappers step your game up, be more organized and keep less people around you.

He’s a real cool dude and his managers were some of the first people I met when I first started working at SoSo Def, so I know he’s in good hands. And believe it or not,

He comes through to Atlanta regularly and actually recorded his demos here after meeting up with Usher.

I’m gonna be checkin for him while he’s down here to let you know what’s goin on with him. Check out the pictures below: READ MORE

My boy Ludacris came out to Clark Atlanta University, my alma mater with Carmelo Anthony to celebrate his birthday as a part of Luda Day Weekend.

CAU’s President Carlton E. Brown even got on the mic.

The 2011 Video Music Awards had Nicki Minaj lost for words as she walked away with her first VMA award ever.

Minaj has won for Best Hip-Hop video for her Billboard Top 10 hit “Super Bass.” As the only female in the category, the Harajuku Barbie beat out Chris Brown “Look at Me now,” Kanye West “All of the Lights,” Lupe Fiasco “The Show Goes On,” and even her Young Money mentor Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot.”

Video: Watch “Super Bass” here.

The Young Money femcee is nominated for Best Female Video for “Super Bass” and for Best Collaboration for “Moment 4 Life” featuring Drake.

During the VMA Pre-Show, hosted by Selena Gomez, Nicki Minaj, 28, showed a preview of her next single “Fly.” The track off of her platinum-selling “Pink Friday” features Rihanna.

Looks like Katt Williams is at it again! After being kicked out of his own show (see here), he got into a fight at someone else’s show!

At a recent concert in Phoenix, AZ  in which rapper Young Jeezy headlined, Katt Williams stole the show. We’ve got clips of a massive brawl and that show Katt with his shirt off, but still rocking a spiked necklace and hat.

The highlight is that during the fight, Jeezy keeps performing his song, then tells the people fighting to go outside and then asks for the lights to be turned back down so he can continue performing!

It seems Katt Williams got into a brawl with a local performer. We’re not sure exactly what went down, but we’ll keep you up when we get more details.
