Twitter timelines were off the chain Wednesday afternoon as former B2K band member, Raz B began a war of words against R&B singers Eric Benet and Chris Brown.
While Benet didn’t bother to respond, Brown launched a vicious attack against Raz B that quickly escalated from disrespectful to offensive and shocking as he began to reference Raz B’s molestation accusations against former manager, Chris Stokes. Brown continued to post homophobic statements and doctored photos of the singer for several hours.

I compared this situation to the infamous T.I./Shawty Lo Beef where Tip compared Lo to a dog howling at the Moon.
In that classic clip of Tip’s response (which you can revist HERE), he smoothly let Shawty Lo know that no response was really necessary by providing an analogy of a dog howling at the moon.
The dog constantly barks at the moon, but the moon is so far away and shining so bright that the moon doesn’t care about that dog. Eventually that dog (Shawty Lo) will have to sit and admire the moon (T.I).
He ends the analogy with: “Just admire the moon dawg!”.
But Chris ain’t that slick. He couldn’t just let it ride and now he’s issued a public apology… Continue Reading…

Usher is being accused of stealing from cartoon star Homer Simpson.
The morning deejays at Y101.7-FM in Jackson, Mississippi claim that they’ve discovered the true origin of Usher’s hit song “OMG” and it comes from a very unexpected place.
According to the deejays, the song closely resembles a Christmas carol that Homer Simpson came up with in an episode of The Simpsons.
In a 2003 episode of the show, Homer sings “Christmas in December, wow, wow, wow. Give me tons of presents, now, now, now!” Meanwhile Usher’s “OMG” goes like this: “Honey got a booty like pow, pow, pow. Honey got some boobies like wow, oh, wow.”
Is it simply a cute coincidence or were Usher and his team (Will.i.am wrote and produced it) inspired by Homer’s songwriting skills?
Listen to the songs side-by-side in the video mash up below and compare the similarities for yourself… Continue Reading…
A second teen has been arrested for breaking into the home of actor-producer Tyler Perry.
Seventeen-year-old Kamisha Boozer, a teen mother and a senior at Atlanta’s Grady High School, appeared in court Thursday morning (December 30) on charges of prowling and criminal trespass at the home of the media mogul.
A public defender assigned to the case, told the judge that Boozer said she wasn’t actually there during the incident and that another defendant gave her name to authorities.
Atlanta police arrested another teen, 18-year-old Chloe Ware, last week on the same charges. She was has since been released on bond and is awaiting trial.
Perry took to his online message board to vent about the attempted break-in at his Buckhead mansion, which happened just days before Christmas and vowed to prosecute the teens to the fullest extent of the law.

Police said there were three women caught on surveillance video at the actor-producer’s home on Paces Ferry Road in northwest Atlanta. Authorities say they are still seeking the third teen.
TLC’s Rozonda “Chili” Thomas is still on the hunt for her perfect mate. After an unsuccessful attempt to find her dream man on the first season of her hit VH1 reality show, ‘What Chilli Wants.’, Chilli returns to the small screen for a second season of searching.
Included on her list of potentials this season is the hot male model she had on her arm at the 2010 BET hip hop awards, as well as boxer Floyd Mayweather but this time around, Chilli plans to ditch the blind dates, noting that her 13-year-old son Tron is on her mind as she searches for Mr. Right.
“I can’t imagine bringing someone around my son who is not an extraordinary man. He already has an active father [ex-husband Dallas Austin], so whoever is going to be my husband has to be a good figure for my son and add to our family.”
Chilli also admits she’s hoping to find a man soon because she wants more children and she ain’t getting any younger!
“I’m straight up and told all the guys this season I wanted kids. It probably made some of them nervous, but it shouldn’t. I just need to know if we’re on the same page or not because I want more kids.”
Check out a sneak peek trailer from the new season of “What Chilli Wants” + a recent Q&A with Chilli: Continue Reading…
