Her marriage has apparently been over for several years, but R&B singer Faith Evans has just now gotten around to pulling the plug. The 37-year-old filed for divorce from music executive Todd Russaw on May 17 in Los Angeles County, after almost 14 years of marriage.

Faith and Todd married in 1997, but according to the divorce petition, the couple separated in December of 2005. READ MORE
Hip-hop star Cassidy is no longer behind bars. The emcee has been released from jail after being arrested earlier this month in New Jersey for a probation violation. Cassidy tweeted last Friday that he’s “feeling better than ever” and looking forward to working on new music.

Apparently Joakim Noah didn’t take heed to the $100,000 mistake Kobe just made for using a gay slur while referring to a referee. Last night during the Eastern Conference Finals game against the Miami Heat, Noah was caught on camera using a homophobic slur. After being benched Joakim felt it necessay to say â€œF**k you, f**gotâ€ to a fan.
Noah said he expects to be fined by the league. After the game, Joakim spoke to reporters in the locker room, Noah said, â€œI apologize. The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I said some things that I shouldnâ€™t have said. I was frustrated and I donâ€™t mean no disrespect to anybody. I just got caught up.â€

The 2011 Billboard Awards aired last night from the MGM Grand Garden in Vegas. Stars were definitely in attendance but to prove to the world who’s definitely on top, go hands down to Beyonce. She was presented the 2011 Millennium Award for her career achievements. This wasn’t the usual presentation she had people like Barbara Streisand to First Lady Michelle Obama express how much the admire her.
Then to add the cherry on top she totally rocked her first time performing her new single “Run the World (Girls)”. Beyonce accepted her award from her mother and nephew but the most honorable gesture was when she thanked Destiny’s Child-Kelly, Michelle and Original members Letoya and Latavia. That was priceless.
Rihanna continues to be the competition for award winners. Justin Bieber wins award for Digitial Artist of the Year. Taylor Swift closes the show out again with a grand win for Top Artist.
Not to knock the other excellent artists that performed like the Queen of Hip/Hop Mary J Blige and Lil Wayne, CeeLo Green, Lady Antebellum, Usher, Pitbull and Neyo, Nicki Minaj, One Republic, and Ke$ha. This was definitely a star studded night.
There has been some drama over Hangover2, apparently during the sequel, the character played by Zach Galifiankis uses the N- word. Now every one knows that if you are not of African- American decent you cannot use the word. So you can imagine how my how me people who saw the movie reacted towards it when they heard it. I can hear the crickets.
In a recent interview Zach sits down with sources and defends his character’s motivation for using the word. Implying they wanted to they really wanted to push the envelop and reveal how ignorant and stupid his character is. But on the outside looking in critics wouldn’t perceive it as so.
â€œFor someone to say that word so cluelessly, itâ€™s funny because it comes out of a place of ignorance,â€ Galifianakis explained. â€œAnd Alan doesnâ€™t know any better; heâ€™s just an idiot. Anyone who would say that so loosely is an idiot. That word can be very inflammatory but Alan is such a dimwit, itâ€™s not excusable at all but youâ€™re making fun of people that would say that word.â€
So now that â€œJumping the Broomâ€ was a hit, it has catapulted T.D. Jakes abilities as a producer to have Hollywood looking to him for their future projects. The preacher/movie mogul is moving forward to co-produce with former Fox Studios head Joe Roth, a new production for Sony based on a non-fiction book.

Anyone who’s ever been hit by their better half in the middle of the night knows that snoring can be pretty frustrating for the person who isn’t the actual snorer. And anyone who’s ever done the hitting can tell you that it is about as high on the annoyance list as annoyances get.
But most tend to get over it, as their pretty little bird tweets away deep into dreamland. That said, not everyone has to share chambers with Shaquille O’Neal, all 7-1 and 300-pound whatever of him. If your better half sounds like a hummingbird, then this guy has to come off like a full blown diesel semi-engine.
