A hip-hop fan who was reportedly punched by Kid Cudi over the weekend says it’s all water under the bridge. “Could be me, I got to give it to the guy”, says Michael Sharpe, whoÂ doesn’t plan on filing charges against the “Pursuit of Happiness” rapper for allegedly beating him. Sharpe states, quote, “I’m not upset, I’m not going to be that person. I just want to meet him and be like ‘I’m the guy you punched.’ I’m not going to press charges.” The alleged incident occurred during Kid Cudi’s Saturday night set at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, British Columbia. Sharpe claims that a person behind him threw a wallet on stage, prompting Kid Cudi to toss it back into the crowd. Sharpe wound up catching the wallet and heaving it behind him, at which point Cudi allegedly entered the crowd and began punching him.
Kid Cudi is currently out on the road with Lady GaGa on her Monster’s Ball Tour. The alleged punching incident took place at a special Kid Cudi show that was not part of his trek with Lady GaGa. The two will be in Las Vegas this Thursday, performing at the Pearl at The Palms.
Chris Brown lost it and really is having a hard time these days, he even deleted his twitter page. People.com is reporting that over the weekend, the singer, 20, had a mini-meltdown online after he visited a Walmart in Connecticut and didn’t find his new album, Graffiti, on the shelves. “But they had Alicia Keys album ready for release for this Tuesday,” he Tweet-griped. “BUT NO SIGN OF GRAFFITI. BS.”
He exploded on Twitter in a profanity-laced series of posts. “I’m tired of this s—-. Major stores r blackballing my CD. Not stockin the shelves and lying to costumers. What the f— do I gotta do.” To the record business, he added: “The industry can kiss my a–.” A visit with the Walmart store’s management brought him no satisfactory answers, he says.
But store employees told PEOPLE and other news outlets that particular Walmart did in fact stock Graffiti â€“ but it sold out, as one worker said to MTV News, “as soon as it hit the shelves.” I really cant say I dont blame him I know I would have done the same thing… I just hate it for his fans they really loved his twitter page… Hold yo head up pimp they are always going to try to bring you down dont let them, just take their paper…
One of the actors on NBC’s hit comedy “30 Rock” is battling a serious health issue. The “New York Daily News” is reporting that Grizzwald “Grizz” Chapman is suffering from kidney disease. The 35-year-old plays a member of Tracy Morgan’s security team on the show. Chapman is currently on dialysis three times a week for severe hypertension. The actor — who is six-foot-eleven and 378 pounds — is on a waiting list for a kidney transplant, but must lose 75 pounds to be considered a candidate. Chapman admits that he has ignored his high blood pressure and refused to take medication for more than a decade.
Grizz Chapman is scheduled to talk about his disease on Tuesday’s “The Dr. Oz Show.” Dr. Mehmet Oz discussed having the “30 Rock” star on his program saying, quote, “He’s got a winning spirit, and if we follow his story carefully, everyone’s going to learn a lot from it.” Despite his kidney disease, Grizz Chapman will continue his duties on “30 Rock.” All-new episodes of the hit series can be seen Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. Eastern on NBC.
