Over the weekend everyone and they mama came out to support Haiti at Club Obsessions. Shout out to Ikonik Relations, Kind of a Big Deal, Rubicon, Antwanette McLaughlin,Â and Grand Hustle all came togetherÂ and hosted the event to help raise funds to rebuild Haiti. All proceeds are going to Haiti immediately by way of The Haitian Alliance who sponsored the event. Bree D’Val, Princess, Xtaci, Mac Breezy, Usivercity, Bam, Pastor Troy, Yung LA, and many other local artists came out and supported the cause. There was a surprise performance by the homies Sir Will, Rasheeda, and Nivea as well.
The cast of Jersey Shore is negotiating with MTV for a second season of the hit show, but they won’t settle for what the network is offering! MTV reportedly offered each cast member a $10,000 signing bonus and $5,000 per episode with 12 episodes scheduled for the next season. The entire cast rejected the first offer and demanded a higher payday. Well now MTV put a new offer on the table, but it appears it’s the final one! Supposedly they already have lined up replacements if the original Jersey Shore cast doesn’t accept their new offer of $10K an episode.
The cast had planned to stick together on the negotiations, but MTV has said they are willing to take the cast members that DO agree with the new negotiations and mix them with a new batch of guidos and guidettes if they don’t accept the offer by today.
Take the money, Snooki and company! You’d be stupid not to!
Without Jersey Shore your star will fade faster than it rose!
Well, well, well, it seems like everyone decided to drop a new song this week!
First Up Jamie Foxx
Jamie Foxx, who’s album has been put on the TBD (date to be determined list), went to hit makers The Dream & Tricky Stewart in search of a single that would put him back on the map. Personally, I don’t think this is it…and I LOVE JAMIE FOXX.Â The song is titled “Quit Your Day Job.”Â Â Maybe I’m just trippin…do you like it?
Also out is Sean “The Pen” Garrett, who seems to keep putting out songs, but doesn’t want to put out an album???Â His new joint features rapper Nicki Minaj (who was recently spotted playing date to Diddy’s son Justin for his 16th birthday party).Â The song is titled “Get It All.”Â So Mr. Garrett, can we get an album out of anytime soon???Â I’m so looking forward to it!!!
Diddy and Misa teach their son Justin how to be the ultimateÂ baller for his 16 birthday… The two threw an extravagant party for their son, Justin, Â at club M2 night club in new york over the weekend. Diddy made sure his son was the ultimateÂ player for the night letting him be boo up with Nicki Minaj . At the party Â Diddy announced that he was giving Justin $10,000 to start his own bank account. Justin then decided to give his $10,000 away as a donation towards Â Haiti Â relief. I was told that MTV is pissed after the media leaked the video ofÂ Â Justin’s Party. The party which was taped for the MTV show “Sweet Sixteen”, not to be seen by anyone until it aired on TV. Only pictures were to be released but some how video was let out and now itsÂ all over the blogs… Well their goes that surprise show… LOL
Rihanna been getting Â it in lately trying to make sure her and her new boo say off the radar… She was spotted at the 2010 NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, France, on Saturday in a Jean Paul Gaultier gown where she won the Best International Female Artist award and performed â€œRussian Rouletteâ€.
In other news Rihanna’s unconfessed Â ‘boyfriend,’ who is said to just be a good friend, had some explaining to do after a restraining order placed against him in 2008 surfaced this week. Requested by his his ex-girlfriend Felicia Terrell, who claimed to have feared for her life after their breakup, the restraining order was later dropped.
In a statement released through his rep, Kemp disputes claims that he has been violent or has violent tendencies.
“Matt dated Felisha about two years ago and decided to end their relationship. She chose to file a complaint and shortly thereafter, on her own accord, decided to drop it based on the fact that the statements made within were false,” says the rep. “She has very recently said that she has no issue whatsoever with Matt and that she and Matt consider this to be a nonissue. Matt Kemp is a consummate Midwestern gentleman who has never displayed any act of violence towards a woman.”

Hip-hop diva Trina is looking to get involved with the Haiti relief efforts. The emcee recently spoke with AllHipHop.com and stated that she would like to adopt a Haitian child. Trina explains, quote, “I would like to contribute on a higher level for more personal reasons,” adding, quote, “I am in the financial position to adopt; therefore I am taking it into deep consideration at this time.” Trina says adopting a child from Haiti is “even more significant” to her because she has family members who are from the country. The rap starlet adds that she has always admired people who have adopted children because of, quote, “the nurturing and invaluable change and joy it will bring to a child’s life.”
Trina’s last album was 2008’s “Still Da Baddest.” The record opened at number one on the Billboard Rap and R&B charts. Trina’s next release, “Amazin’,” is expected to hit stores on May 4th.
