While plenty of ladies may dream of former B2K frontman Omarion as their Valentine, they may never get their wish. It seems Omarion cites “spiritual reasons” for not celebrating Valentine’s Day or any other holiday.
“I actually don’t celebrate any of the holidays…it’s more a spiritual thing. I have to go with my conscience. I just decided not [to] involve myself in Pagan holidays.”
Public Enemy’s Flava Flav might owe over 63-thousand-dollars in back child support. Then again, he might not. The mother of three of Flav’s kids, Mary Parker, successfully amended an appeal last month to a 1996 agreement.

Parker started the process of adding the third child to the original child support agreement in July of 2008.
Now that the agreement has been approved, Flavor Flav’s weekly child support payments have increased from 117-dollars to over 800-dollars. READ MORE

Jay-Z is reacting to the new “We Are The World 25 For Haiti” single saying, quote, “some things are just untouchable.” The rapper tells MTV.com, quote, “I know everybody is going to take this wrong…I love it, and I understand the point and think it’s great. But I think ‘We Are The World’ is like [Michael Jackson’s] “Thriller” to me. I don’t ever want to see it touched.” Jay-Z adds that while he appreciates the efforts made through the song to help the victims of the January 12th Haiti earthquake, he adds that a new song should have been written for the occasion. The legendary emcee says the track’s producer, Quincy Jones, is a “genius” who he respects very much. But he also points out that he made an effort to write a new song for Haiti.
Jay-Z says, quote, “I tried to do that with ‘Stranded’…I didn’t try to make ‘We Are The World,’ but I tried to make our take on how we felt.” Jay-Z’s “Stranded” was unveiled on the George Clooney-hosted “Hope For Haiti Now” telethon last month. The song features Rihanna, along with U2’s Edge and Bono. The video for “We Are The World 25 For Haiti” premiered before the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver last Friday.

Over the weekend Usher hit the stage for the All Star Games and as I watched his performance I was left with only one question, “did Usher lose all his swagger”. I don’t know if it was the fact that I didn’t know or like the songs that he preformed, or if it was the bad lip singing, — what ever it was I hated the performance. I hope the other songs on his album are better than the one’s he did on stage. I think he is so talented and one of the best entertainers alive, but Â for some strange reason been making poor song choices.
Ush let me know if you want me to come a listen to the album cause I will keep it real.
