Hip-hop’s fashionista Kanye West was obviously absent from this year’s Fashion Week in NYC. Normally a staple of the event, known for sitting in front row of major fashion events, Weezy was no where to be found, and neither were some major designers including his friend, Marc Jacobs. Rumor has it that West will skill Fashion Week in NYC completely to launch his womenswear collection next during during the fashion shows in Paris. Rumor also has it that Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci, artwork designer for Watch the Throne, as a mentor.
Everybody’s favorite couple, Beyonce and Jay-Z, were spotted strolling around NYC. Beyonce looks to be wearing her pregnancy well.

Lil Wayne is not to played with. At a concert that took place last week in Omaha, Nebraska, Weezy decided to recite an a capella version of his song Nightmares On The Bottom. Midway through the performance an issue arose. Apparently, somebody just couldn’t contain their happiness or excitement and just continued to scream. However, Lil Wayne was disturbed by the constant interruption and told them:
“Shut the f*** up. Stop it. For real. If you were really a fan, you would shut the f*** up and listen to me. Really. Haven’t you noticed it’s like only 2 and 3 of yall doing that? Everybody else in the room is real f***ing fans. Thank you.”
Things don’t stop there either. Weezy picked up where he left off but after the performance he was sure to let that person know that he was upset by their actions and even gave them some future advice. READ MORE
Fresh out the video studio, my girl Monica has just released her newest video for Anything (To Find You) featuring Rick Ross. Set in a warehouse, the vibe of the video is classic 90’s, from the dancers to the beat to the big chains. Monica does it big with this video and takes us back to a time when R&B was R&B, if you get what I’m saying!
Lil Kim is on the original track, but Biggie’s mother wasn’t feelin that, so she’s been scrubbed and we get Missy’s vocals but no Missy, who is battling Graves’ Disease (see here).
Monica’s album New Life will drop November 8th (see here)
Check out the video and the behind the scenes footage and remember where you saw it first: READ MORE
Last week, I reported rumors about the lovely Meagan Good that she would be taking over the role recently vacated by Stacey Dash of Val on VH1’s Single Ladies (see here). Looks like those rumors were wrong. Meagan Good met up with the people over at Global Grind to talk about the show:
“They haven’t contacted me..and if they do I’d only be coming on as recurring, (like I was on The Game)..I’m not ready to be a regular on a show, although I am developing a show myself I might star in.”
There you have it ladies and gentlemen! So the question is who will play the role of Val? Better yet, who SHOULD play the role!?

Chanita Foster went off on Eddie Long’s son, Edward long Jr. while he was singing. She thought he was singing about sex, turns out ol’ boy was singing a gospel song! Once she realized she was wrong, Chanita came out and apologized and here is the footage:
I love a black woman who can come out and admit when she’s wrong! I mean fa real, you only hear about black women that get angry and think they are always right, but Chanita did the opposite. I respect it. You can download Edward’s music on ITunes.

The footage, said to take place in one of Drake’s condos, shows Ms. Williams popping and dropping it like no other.
