Wow, this is really getting out of hand… some of these  celebs think that they can do anything these days. Hip-hop dancer Shane Sparks, a choreographer on Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” and a judge on MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew,” was arrested Friday in Los Angeles and charged with eight counts of felony child molestation.

The 40-year-old, whose legal name is Melvin Sparks, was taken into custody by detectives at about 8 a.m. at his North Hollywood home on a felony warrant.

His bail, set at $590,000, was posted Saturday night. His lawyer says he is ready to fight what he calls “extortion, Hollywood style.” Steve Meister says the charges against his client “are completely without merit” and that Sparks “knows he is innocent and will fight to clear his name.”

The investigation surrounds a decade-old incident involving a teenager. Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, says a criminal complaint was filed by the alleged victim, whose full name they are withholding because she was a minor at the time.

“There’s one victim, and it occurred in the ’90s. I believe it started in ’94 and went on for several years,” Robison tells E! News. “It’s an underaged girl. She was under 15 when the alleged crimes occurred. She is an adult now and came forward to authorities.”

Actress Brittany Murphy Dies


wenn5085471brittany__oPt

Actress Brittany Murphy passed away on Sunday morning in Los Angeles at the age of 32. People just don’t typically die at 32 of natural causes!!!!!!! So we know that in the next few weeks we will find out all of the real dirt of what was really going on.

This is absolutely devastating to me cause I was such a big fan of hers since her  “Clueless” days. But I must say this comes as no surprise! She lives in Hollywood…

Perez Hilton said we, and those who knew Brittany personally, saw this coming. That does not make this any less horrible. Murphy reportedly went into full cardiac arrest and her husbands’ (Simon Monjack) mom immediately called paramedics to save his wife. Murphy was announced dead on arrival at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after paramedics and doctors could not revive the 8 Mile actress.

My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this extremely difficult time. Here’s one of my favorite scenes.

Lady Gaga Fame Monster Deluxe Album Artwork

lady-gaga-kanye-west

This is a shot for the Fame Monster Deluxe Album artwork booklet. Dope work by photographer Dave Chapelle. I find myself lost for words as I look at all the pictures. I then ask myself, what is the artistic vision behind this shoot?

This shoot depicts Kanye West carrying the eccentric Lady Gaga.  This is an eclectic piece of artwork, but I think there is a deeper meaning to the photo. Like, why is this man holding this chic with a volcano behind him in the jungle barefoot? lol Maybe I missed the point…

Tell me what you think….What do you see when view this picture? Shot out to the homie Necoelbitchie.com for the pic’s

Sinbad_Adkins
Eurweb is reporting that Sinbad is in really deep doo-doo with the IRS. According to the Detroit News, the Benton Harbor native owes more than $8.15 million in delinquent federal taxes and the U.S. Attorney General’s office wants his house sold to help satisfy the debt, according to federal court records.

On Dec. 10, an assistant U.S. attorney asked a federal judge to foreclose on several tax liens and determine whether the 53-year-old comedian is the true owner of a $1.5 million home in Hidden Hills, Calif.

Sinbad, whose real name is Sinbad Adkins, rose to fame on “Star Search” in the 1980s before starring in a string of movies like “Houseguest” and tv shows, really owns the property, the government claims.

On Dec. 11, the day after the government filed the case, Sinbad filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in California, listing between $10 million and $50 million in liabilities and less than $50,000 in assets. That might cause a slight hiccup for the IRS in pursuit of a settlement.

The IRS claims Sinbad filed federal income tax returns for years 1998 through 2006 but failed to pay the reported taxes.

Here’s a breakdown of his IRS debt:

* 1998: $2,358,563
* 1999: $1,136,002
* 2000: $1,170,451
* 2001: $953,758
* 2002: $626,045
* 2003: $542,942
* 2004: $612,367
* 2005: $157,934
* 2006: $599,663

It’s REALLY a Different World for Sinbad now…

gucci mane jail

Atlanta rap star Gucci Mane isn’t letting his lack of freedom prevent him from planning a big 2010. MTV News recently spoke to the incarcerated emcee, who says he will be dropping two new albums next year. He states, quote, “I got an album coming out April 2010. It’s called ‘The State vs. Radric Davis: The Appeal.'” Gucci says the album is already recorded, and is currently being mixed and mastered.

Lil’ Wayne got caught in some mess the other night after his bus got pulled over when drug dogs smelled weed around his bus . The Border Patrol says Wayne and the others were questioned and charges are pending. His lawyer tells TMZ that while some people did receive citations, Lil’ Wayne was not one of them.

Lil’ Wayne, along with 11 other people, was detained yesterday in Falfurrias, Tex. by the United States Border Patrol after marijuana was discovered on board his tour bus.

Wayne pled guilty in October to attempted criminal possession of a weapon stemming from a 2007 traffic stop of his tour bus. He is set to spend a year in jail and will appear for sentencing in February 2010.

UPDATE — The Laredo Entertainment Center, where Lil’ Wayne was supposed to perform last night but didn’t, tells TMZ he will perform there tonight to make up for the canceled show.
