Lil Wayne covers the October/November 2011 issue of VIBE magazine where he pays homage to the legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix.
The 28 year old megastar captures Hendrix’s style game to the tee… from the badass black hat; a “Purple Haze” era Technicolor military jacket; black leather pants; and Jimi’s signature orange, black and white Fender Stratocaster.
“Jimi’s just one of my favorite artists,” says Wayne, who a few years ago decided to pick up the guitar himself. “Everything Jimi stood for, I believe in.”
Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter is more than just Beyonce‘s boo/father to-be, he’s the mutha-flockin “KING” as one of GQ’s MEN OF THE YEAR for 2011!
Jay was recently given the title of “King” by Gentlemen’s Quarterly and is listed amongst their 2011 Men of the Year. He sits down with GQ’s Alex Pappademas to dish about Fatherhood and more.
At 42, he remains, precedent-defyingly, a rapper people still care about, because he’s managed to frame all his achievements—his front-office stint at Def Jam, his ownership stake in the NBA franchise soon to be known as the Brooklyn Nets, the $150 million deal with LiveNation that’s said to rival Madonna’s, even the pop star he put a ring on—as we-shouldn’t-be-here victories for a kid from public housing, and for hip-hop, too.
The 2nd episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Season 4) aired last night, and it was apparent (at least to me) that the hot catch phrase this season is “I’m rich bitch!”
NeNe Leakes, the “originator” of the new phrase hit up Bravo’s What Happens Live after show last night and attempted to explain her statement to the masses, all while referring to the great city of Atlanta as “Haterville”…
“Sheree still broke and Kandi is still paying both sides of the fence… ain’t nothing changed.” ~ NeNe
For some reason the fame has really gone to her head. Am I jealous of NeNe? Are you absolutely kidding me? She yelled out that she’s “rich” if that’s rich, I don’t want no parts of it. I’m looking for wealth.
You’re rich… but you’re missing teeth, you wearing Louboutins… red bottoms and all that.
Before you do that… work on your hygiene. That’s all I’m sayin…
When Harris popped the question to his girlfriend, his new fiance’ may have already known he was a convicted felon who had served his time, but the diamond ring(s) he slid on her finger probably erased any doubts she may have been having.
That soon changed when police tracked down the ‘bride-to-be’ and literally snatched her new bling from her fingers!
Yeah… her man had finally asked her to marry him, but her ex-con boo had asked her to share the rest of their lives together with rings he’d stolen elderly crime victim!
Super producer Tyler Perry was NOT a happy camper when the lights in his southwest Atlanta area studio abruptly went off in the midst of a busy work day.
Perry was smack dab in the middle of filming for his new TBS show “For Better or For Worse” when a “blackout” occurred and he and his film crew had been patiently waiting for the power to resume.
After an hour or so without lights, the media mogul hilariously decides to call the Georgia Power company to complain about the situation.
Perry initially gets caught in a loop as he battles with the dreaded automated answering system, but then gets transferred to a live person only after getting frustrated and threatening to ‘whoop some “A”zz’!
He’s Tyler Perry dammit!! And he knows he paid that dayum light bill….
