‘House of Dereon’ Unveils New Beyonce Ad

The House of Dereon, a clothing line by Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles, is gearing up for their fall advertising blitz. The ad will feature none other than Beyonce. The photos were shot in New York City by photographer Terry Richardson. The picture features B wearing form-fitting cocktail dress and a headwrap and with her hand on her stomach. I don’t think that’s a coincidence, in fact it’s a great marketing scheme, as Beyoncé broke records when she announced she was pregnant (see here)

T.I. Back In Jail Because Of VH1 Reality TV Show

It appears that T.I. getting put back into jail was not because of his tricked out bus, as his lawyers claimed, but because prison officials found out that his manager and a VH1 producer on board the bus to talk business! According to Bureau of Prisons documents obtained by CNN,

“such people were not authorized to travel with him in the conditions of his furlough. [T.I.] further indicated he was discussing a new reality series and a book with those individuals.”

Because T.I. broke the rules of his probation, in which he was to stay in a halfway house until the last day of his sentence on September 29, he will stay in a federal penitentiary until that date. Lawyer Steve Sadow still say that the feds are wrong and that “no business was conducted on the bus,” and goes on to say that even those accusations aren’t a violation,

“The provision itself speaks in terms of conducting a business or conducting or directing an investment transaction. The purpose of that provision is not so that people can’t talk about their business, it’s so that you don’t run a business while you’re in the Bureau of Prisons.”

This much we know for sure: T.I. will be getting out of the big house by the end of the month. READ MORE
