Lady Gaga GQ cover banned in the US

According to the magazine's web site, the cover has been banned by "certain U.S. chains" because Gaga is showing the lower portion of her left breast, which is apparently a big no-no. In addition, New York state law also prohibits showing any area of the breast below the nipple, which could sacrifice the magazine's additional distribution in NYC, as well.

Gagaloo has yet to comment on the cover being banned, but in a statement published on, the magazine's editors "can't help wonder what Lady Gaga herself would make of this turn of events, given her prophetic quote, standing at the start of the Q photo shoot with a dildo in her hand, 'It'd be a real f**king story, right'..."

Who knew....I didn't get the memo that Sasha Fierce died.

"Sasha Fierce is done...I killed her."

Beyoncé also told "Extra" that now that she was off the road, she was going to focus on "learning to paint and cook, and to do Broadway shows and museums. And learn just to be at home and just watch television." She even welcomed the idea of children with husband and fellow worldwide phenomenon Jay-Z. "Eventually," she said. "When it happens, it happens."


Juvenile and an associate producer have been arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana after neighbors told police they could smell pot coming from a house being used as a recording studio in Louisiana.

The 34-year-old rap star, whose real name is Terius Gray, was booked on Thursday at a jail in St. Bernard Parish southeast of New Orleans. Gray and his 42-year-old producer Leroy Edwards were released later that night on bond.


According to the rumor mill, Ne-yo was arrested over the weekend.

Whatever the problem was seems to have stemmed from a rowdy entourage member.

Apparently Ne-yo was enjoying the attentions of several comely admirers Saturday night following a performance. Reports say a restaurant patron came into some sort of physical contact with one of the young lovelies, and that one of Ne-Yo’s associates took matters into his own hands.

Somehow a bus boy ended up taking a punch.

Upon leaving the restaurant where this all went down the singer and his hangers-on were searched by Oslo authorities.

While it doesn’t appear anyone was seriously injured, the specter of lawsuits has begun floating around.

Oh no...we hear DJ Derrick Jones (a.k.a D-Nice) has officially confirmed his separation from wife, actress Malinda Williams. The couple amicably separated in October of 2009. They were married in August 2008. The couple is currently going through the process of divorce.

GV Says: Awww....we hate that.


Kanye is slowly getting back into music. Check out his latest video, Coldest Winter, from his 808’s and Heartbreak album


Director Nabil Elderkin said for “Coldest Winter,” one of the most personal records on the emotional project, based on West’s past relationship with his former fiance and the lost of his mother, the video isn’t as intense as their previous work together.

“It’s pretty minimalistic,” he said. “It’s slow and very visual. I just wanted to catch the vibe of the song and not get too literal. Because the lyrics are very close to Kanye and go much deeper than the video goes, obviously hearing the song you know it’s very emotional.”

The director wrote the treatment for the project and described the final product as a boundary-pushing effort compared to their past work. According to Elderkin, the pair experimented in the visual medium in a way they haven’t ever done before. He said the process was more challenging for him, particularly since West wasn’t a part of the editing process and only saw the final version.


I just really the Woods to sit down.

Tiger Woods, who recently apologized for catting around to a long list of people, has now issued an apology to parents.

"Dear Premier Academy parents," they wrote jointly in a note to the school in Windemere, Fla., where the Woods family lives.

"We would like to share our appreciation for your support over the past several months and offer our personal apology for any inconvenience you are experiencing due to the increased media scrutiny surrounding our children."

The Woods' daughter, Sam, is a student at the school.

"We truly understand how frustrating it can be," they wrote. "We hope that the paparazzi will find something better to do with their time in the near future."

The letter was obtained Tuesday by in nearby Orlando.

Woods and his wife were last seen in Arizona, where the world's greatest golfer was reportedly undergoing sex addiction therapy to exorcise the demons that drove him to cheat on his wife with a harem of hotties.

On Friday, Woods faced the cameras for the first time since the scandal broke around Thanksgiving and apologized to everyone from Elin to his corporate sponsors for letting lust ruin his life and threaten his money-making brand.

It's so hard to keep Hov's business dealings, but it looks like he's under investigation.

According to the New York Post, the rap mogul's involvement with the Aqueduct Entertainment Group (AEG)—the consortium chosen to run a multi-billion dollar race track/casino at the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens and his connection with New York state Governor David Patterson —has ignited a federal investigation.

According to reports, authorities are more than skeptical about the selection of AEG to operate the new venture and what role Jay played in swaying New York Governor David Patterson's decision.

Paterson, who is known for having a relationship with the 40-year-old rapper—has a seven percent stake in AEG and according to sources, knew that Jay-Z had been trying to get involved with the investment since last year. One source reportedly told the Post that Jay eventually linked up with casino mogul Steve Wynn, who at the time was bidding for control.

According to reports [Gov.] Patterson advised Wynn that “he needed to have a minority partner” and that is when, according to sources, Wynn reached out to Jay-Z. But when Wynn pulled out, Jay-Z was without a home.

The source then claims that when Wynn's deal went sour, AEG scooped up Jay to appeal to the governor.

AEG denies that it tapped the Hip-Hop heavyweight to win the governor's favor.


So according to the rumor mill, Weezy may have a baby on the way with Shannell, none other than D. Wood's sister. Rumors started when the two were spotted snuggling about...

Shanell began as a background dancer for artists like Kandi Burress, Petey Pablo and Ne-Yo before deciding to write songs. Teaming with her high school friend and producer Bangladesh, Shanell recorded a demo tape and aimed to become an artist herself along with writing for other people. She met Wayne while serving as a back-up dancer for Ne-Yo during the Up Close and Personal Tour (which featured the rapper along with Chris Brown) and eventually passed the rapper Bangladesh's beat for "A Milli," which became a huge street hit for the Young Money leader. Soon after, Shanell joined Lil Wayne's artist enclave and began recording, touring and performing her single "Play in My Band" as well as co-writing songs for Wayne.

Now, as she preps her as-yet-untitled debut album, Shanell said the rumors about whether she's dating Lil Wayne have run rampant but have no basis in reality.

"Basically it came from a corny rumor that escalated," Shanell told MTV News. "First I was dating him, then I was his girlfriend, then we were getting married, then we were settling down and now I'm pregnant. It's so foolish we've haven't paid it any attention."

So what of the widely circulated photo where the two are hugging?

"We're taking a picture," she said.

The singer-songwriter says that the dating rumors were fine, but the pregnancy chatter was not.

"All the rest of the rumors were kinda funny except that one," she admitted. "When my mother called me like, 'Um?,' [I was] like, 'No! Are you serious?' I don't care about the rumors, but I just want people to know that I'm not pregnant. I've got an album coming out, I'm a dancer, I'm in shape and children are not anywhere in my future."

Now Weezy has jumped on the band wagon to clear things up.

"Let me clear up this rumor, man: Shanell is not pregnant from me," Wayne said in a serious tone on a Ustream video last weekend. "Shanell isn't even pregnant! Period. Clear that up right now, man. Everybody talking about Shanell pregnant by ... No, she not even pregnant. Period."


Thank you....Rihanna has finally saw the light. She's letting go of her dark ways as she readies for her new album.

"Rated R, I love the sound of it, in terms of the bass," Rihanna explained to MTV Korea. "I really like the bottom, the grime of it. But if I were to combine that with more energetic, up-tempo pop records, then I think that will be a happy marriage. And that's where we'll probably go next."

Rated R was inspired mostly by Rihanna's ordeal in the wake of her and Brown's breakup. The singer was the subject of media headlines worldwide. She kept away from the spotlight after a brief reunion with Brown following their altercation. But when Rihanna returned, she had an album that chronicled her months away from the glare.

"This album is an expression of all those feelings that I went through in the last eight months, just different emotions," she said shortly after Rated R's release. "All of it isn't angry, all of it isn't dark and sad, 'cause I didn't go through that the whole time. That was part of it. It was really a roller coaster, and you get that when you're listening to the album."


This is why Diddy is not a good candidate for marriage. Too many mixed messages and conflicting behavior. When he's not booed up with Kim, he's booed up with Cassie, and he's not kicking it with her he's twittering pictures of his daughter Chance Combs and baby’s mother Sarah Chapman. His caption: Like mother, like daughter! God is the GREATEST.

Weezy joined Twitter this weekend. His plan is to be post during his last days of freedom.


Oh Joe...It just gets worse doesn't it.

Michael Jackson's father can receive some medical records related to his superstar son's death, a judge ruled Friday.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ruled that Joe Jackson can receive his son's medical records from the hospital where he died. The judge will review the records first before releasing them to Joe Jackson's attorney, Brian Oxman. Beckloff also said the men can only receive records generated on or after June 25 - the day Michael Jackson died at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

Oxman sought the files as part of an effort to obtain a monthly stipend for the Jackson family patriarch. He said during a hearing last week that he also needs the records to decide whether to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

Beckloff's order states a medical expert hired by Joe Jackson can review the files, but not copy them. Anyone who sees the records will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement, the ruling states.

Jackson's estate had sought to quash subpoenas that Oxman issued for the files. Attorneys for the estate argued during a hearing last week that Beckloff should review the files first. They also stated the files shouldn't be released until after the results of a May hearing on Joe Jackson's stipend bid.

Oxman said he was pleased with the ruling and expects to have the records soon.

Beckloff is going to verify the records do not violate doctor-patient confidentiality. Oxman said he didn't expect that to be an issue.

"We are very certain based on prior records that we have from the paramedics that Michael was long deceased and that there were no communications (with doctors)," Oxman said.

He said Joe Jackson deserves to know more about how his son died and the records will also be important in his quest to receive an allowance of more than $15,000 per month.


For all you Hov haters, things just got worse. The rapper is considering shooting two more videos from the Blueprint 3.

"I wanna shoot 'Venus vs. Mars,' " he told reporters last weekend in Dallas. "I may shoot two — I shot 'Run This Town' [and 'D.O.A. (Death of Auto Tune)'], I been shooting two at the same time. I'll probably shoot 'Venus' and maybe 'A Star Is Born.' But I definitely wanna shoot 'Venus' — I got an amazing concept in my mind."

We hear good friend L.A. Dodger Matt Kemp planned a private bash for Rihanna who turned 22 on Saturday, Feb. 20,

It's a far cry from last year, when a splashy 21st birthday bash planned by her record label was cancelled after she was attacked by then-boyfriend Chris Brown. Rihanna retreated from the spotlight and went on a movie date with friends to celebrate the milestone.

So what does Kemp have planned for the birthday girl?

"(Matt) really wanted to do something nice for Rihanna this year since she didn't have much of a 21st birthday last year," a source told E! News. The "small get-together" will reportedly include the couple's "closest friends, good Jamaican food, a photo booth, dancing and a nice cake."

The soiree is said to be taking place at a private home in Phoenix, where Kemp is staying during spring training.

GV Says: Here's a leaked picture. Is that a "little person" as a stripper. WTF?


A Manhattan judge sentenced a man who bombarded the mom of singer Ashanti with pictures of his private parts to two years in jail.

Calling it a "completely unsatisfactory situation," Supreme Court Justice Thomas Farber on Thursday ordered delusional Devar Hurd to jail for harassing and stalking the singer's mom, Tina Douglas, with raunchy text messages and what prosecutors labeled "self-created pornography."

Hurd -- whom the judge would have preferred putting on probation and in treatment -- had insisted the pictures of him pleasuring himself were "for the ladies."

"Yes, I've sent some adult text messages, for adults only," Hurd said. "My intent was not to harm."

The self-styled hip-hop CEO, model and car salesman has been jailed at Rikers Island since being arrested in July for swamping Douglas with years' worth of cell phone filth meant for Ashanti.

"Even if he believed that Ashanti was in love with him, his conduct was not that of a man wooing a woman," said assistant district attorney Carolina Holderness. "It's not like he was sending her flowers."

Hurd, 31, had said he and Ashanti shared a connection after their eyes locked for a split second at a Chicago concert. That fleeting moment launched his wacky campaign to contact Ashanti, in which he sang into the answering machine of hip-hop mogul Irv Gotti and rhapsodized about having sex with the singer.

"I only wish the best for her and her career," he said.

Farber said he would have preferred to place Hurd on probation and in a program to combat what he described was "a very serious mental illness."

The judge was left with few options, though, because Hurd's family recently moved to Illinois, and a hoped-for probation sentence could not be worked out with that state.

Farber ordered that Hurd's Indiana license to carry a semi-automatic weapon be revoked, shaking his head as he expressed disbelief that he had been granted a permit.

"Mr. Hurd, I realize that you don't want to hear this, but it's obvious to me that you need help," Farber said.

Hurd's lawyer, Richard Verchick, said he will appeal.


Fantasia is receiving hate mail.

The "American Idol" winner had just finished a performance of "The Color Purple" in Los Angeles Friday when the letter was delivered in a stack of fan mail, reports.

Fantasia's manager told TMZ that the singer became "alarmed" over the racially charged note, which included the n-word and a line that read "go back where you came from and die."

Sources told TMZ the letter-writer claims to have worked as a security guard for Fox during Fantasia's "Idol" run.

The incident was reported to the LAPD, and the venue, Pantages Theater, has stepped up its security measures.

Fantasia isn't running scared, however. She told TMZ, "I will not be defeated by one person's hatred."

GV Says: Maybe I'm wrong for this, but after watching her reality show I wouldn't be surprised if it was someone from her family.

Nas faces a criminal contempt charge for unpaid child and spousal support in his divorce from Kelis. NY Daily News reports:

The rapper pleaded not guilty through his attorney and was ordered back for a March hearing in Los Angeles.

Kelis' attorney says Nas is $200,000 behind on child and spousal support. He was ordered to pay more than $51,000 per month to his former wife and infant son in December.

Judge David S. Cunningham III, who is overseeing the divorce proceedings, said Friday it's starting to look like the rapper is trying to evade court orders.

One of Nas' attorneys, Anthony Ukran, told Cunningham the rapper needs more time to prepare his defense and show he's unable to pay the court-ordered support amounts.

Kelis filed for divorce in May.

So was anyone else wondering where Jay-Z was for the "We Are the World" remake?

"I have a interesting take on that," Jay-Z said Saturday at the annual "2 Kings" dinner, which was sponsored by Sprite and Bing and took place during NBA All-Star weekend. "I know everybody is gonna take this wrong: 'We Are the World,' 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 wanna see it touched. I'm a fan of music. I know the plight and everything that's going on in Haiti. I applaud the efforts: [Millions have been raised] through text [donations] to Haiti. So I appreciate the efforts and everything, but 'We are the World' is [musically] untouchable like 'Thriller' is untouchable. Some things are just untouchable. It was a valiant effort, but for me, it's gonna be untouchable."

Jay said he felt that a new song should have been written instead of re-creating the 1985 classic.

"I would have loved that idea better," he said. "As everyone knows, I have tremendous respect for Quincy Jones. Of course, I think he's genius, as everyone else does. [But] I think it's time for us to make a new [song]. I tried to do that with 'Stranded,' the song Jay, Rihanna and U2's Bono and the Edge premiered at the 'Hope for Haiti Now' telethon]. I didn't try to make 'We Are the World,' but I tried to make our take on how we felt."

GV Says: I'm not mad at you Hov.

This weekend, Lebron and Jay-Z were the key guests at Sprite’s Two Kings Dallas Elevators Mentoring Event.


What the 'H'? Tiger used no protection. SMH. The NY Daily News reports:

Tiger Woods' porn-star ex-mistress claims the disgraced golfer knocked her up twice, but her stepmother is giving her story a cold shower, describing her as a "compulsive liar."

In dueling interviews, Joslyn James said she paid the consequences for not practicing safe-sex with Woods while Deborah Siwik said her step-daughter is not to be believed.

"Joslyn is a compulsive liar and a bad mom," Siwik told

Siwik did not completely discount James's claims of becoming pregnant twice by Tiger, but added that any number of men could have left her in the family way.

"It's possible she got pregnant by Tiger Woods, but she was involved with a lot of other men, too," Siwik said.

"He's no saint," she said of Woods, "but I don't envy him getting involved with Joslyn James - she is a bad person who only wants to be famous."

In an interview with "Inside Edition" that was to air Monday night, James, 32, insisted Woods got her pregnant twice.

The first pregnancy, she said, ended in a miscarriage and the second was aborted.

She said she never told Woods about the pregnancies, which coincided with the two pregnancies of the golfer's wife, Elin.

"The first one was when [Elin] was pregnant with Sam," said James, referring to Woods's 2-year-old daughter.

The second time she got pregnant, James said she quietly had an abortion, explaining, "Elin was pregnant with Charlie at that time. I just didn't want to ruin anything.

"I feel bad for [Elin]," added James, who says she carried on a steamy three-year affair with Woods. "She didn't deserve this and she didn't deserve being humiliated."

James - whose X-rated movies include "Porn Star Brides" and "Top Heavy 4" - claims she got pregnant because she and Tiger never practiced safe sex.

"It was never talked about. It was never protected," she said.

Lending credence to her claims she had Tiger by the tail, James shared a series of old racy text messages with "Inside Edition" from an amorous-sounding Woods.

"Baby I'm not going anywhere or doing anything. You please me like no other has or ever will. I'm not losing that," Woods purportedly texted James.

In another saved text from Tiger, the Grand Slam-winning golfer professed his enduring love: "Great thing is we have a lifetime of this."

"He said that we would always have what we had because he couldn't trust other people and there was nobody who made him feel like I did and that he wished he had met me before he met his wife," James said.

GV Says: SMH....Elin better get tested.


So this hooker is determined to make a name for herself. The NY Daily News reports that:

Hell hath no fury like Kim Kardashian scorned. Video vixen Carmen Ortega is accusing KK of quickly squashing the affair she had with Kim's man, Reggie Bush. "Reggie and I had a brief, short-lived relationship almost one year ago. During that time, we both were in serious relationships with other people, but we had an 'understanding,' " the stunner explains. "Unfortunately, things hit the fan when [Kim] found out. She immediately ran to the Internet to throw me under the bus."

What do people with too much buy each other? The NY Daily News reports:

How about a $18,500 tree?

Angelina Jolie gave Brad Pitt a 200-year-old olive tree, worth close to $20K for Valentine's Day, London's Sun reports.

Jolie, 34, reportedly plans to plant the tree on the couple's $60 million estate in the south of France.

"Ange bought it from a nursery called The English Garden Centre in Valbonne, near their house. It's a very special tree and cost her a fortune," an unnamed source tells the British newspaper.

Traditionally a symbol of peace and reconciliation, the olive branch will no doubt lead to further rumors about the couple's supposedly testy relationship.


If you haven't seen it, here's the infamous "We Are the World" remake for Haiti.


Finally...the perpetual couple head to the alter.

The couple has just sent out Valentine's Day-themed, heart-shaped save-the-date cards for the July 10 ceremony in New York City, urging invitees to "Get Into A New York State Of Mind."

"This is a really exciting time," Vazquez, 30, and Anthony, 25, say in a statement. "We are looking forward to this summer to celebrate our love with our close friends and family." The couple has a 3-year-old son, Kiyan, together.

LaLa enlisted celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss, and guests for the star-studded soiree will include Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, Kobe and Vanessa Bryant, Ciara and Michael Jordan.

Bad news fashion fans.....

Alexander McQueen, the iconic British fashion designer with an A-list clientele, was found dead Thursday inside his London home after reportedly killing himself.

The 40-year-old McQueen, the son of a taxi driver who wound up making suits for Prince Charles and gowns for Oscar-winner Kate Winslet, committed suicide, according to the London Daily Mail.

"At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated," his family said in a statement.

His company spokeswoman, Samantha Garrett, confirmed the death of the four-time "British Designer of the Year" winner but declined to provide any details.

"We don't have any information in terms of circumstances," she said.

An ambulance called to a London address at about 10:40 a.m. found McQueen already dead, police said.

The designer was reportedly despondent over the death of his mother last week.

McQueen was one of the fashion world's biggest design stars, traveling in the same circles as top models Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.

His list of superstar clients included Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, Fergie, Cameron Diaz and Katie Holmes. McQueen was born in London's East End, and took to fashion at a young age - dropping out of school at 16 to apprentice on Savile Row.


Rihanna held a press conference in Seoul, South Korea yesterday to promote her Rated R album. Fans gave her cakes and gifts as she answered questions.

Actress talks about dating Dwyane Wade, her biggest fear and what’s next

On the surface, it seems that everything is just about perfect in Gabrielle Union’s world. She’s playing a lawyer on a hit TV show; she’s in love with a hot, younger man and she’s a spokesperson for a major skin care company. But the actress says she’s the first to admit that her self-work is nowhere near completed. “There are some things I personally want to improve upon in my own life,” she said. “I’m working on personality and character traits that I know need to be tweaked. So yes, I do want more.”


So after his publicity attempt with Rihanna backfired (guess you could say after people pull up your violent past), Matt Kemp is once again maintaining he's ONLY friends with Rihanna.

Despite his romantic trip to Mexico last month with Rihanna, the center fielder says he's focused on spring training and helping his team make it to the World Series.

"I can't get distracted by that," Kemp says in an interview on the L.A. Dodgers Web site of the paparazzi frenzy surrounding the Cabo San Lucas vacation. "When it's time to play baseball, that's my job. No distractions."

Though Kemp, 25, and Rihanna, 21, were spotted smooching and snuggling together, the hunky jock says the Grammy winner is "just a friend, a good friend of mine." He adds, "We went down to Mexico and had fun together."

The 25-year-old baseball pro has a lot riding on him. Considered one of the best center fielders in the league, Kemp was just rewarded with a two-year, $10.95 million contract after he won Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards.

But will his playing the Hollywood field get in the way of his professional game?

Dodgers manager Joe Torre, who has worked with Derek Jeter during his high-profile hook-ups, doesn't thinks so. "When I see or sense it's become a distraction, that's when I'll say something. I don't like to anticipate problems."

GV Says: We desperately need Rihanna to get it together.

During a recent visit to New York, her husband Nick Cannon got a jumpstart on his Valentine's Day shopping, stopping by the Renaissance Hotel's "Sweetest Suite," where he picked up some edible gifts for the two to enjoy together. The room was packed with more than 300 lbs. of treats provided by Dylan's Candy Bar, and Cannon indulged— dipping pretzel sticks into a white chocolate fountain.

While there, Cannon also stocked up on giant Rice Krispie treats, gummi worms, Runts, and Now and Laters, which he told people he was planning to take home to Mariah.

So nevermind dissing Jessica Simpson, John Mayer's interview gets worse as he references to African-Americans:

PLAYBOY: If you didn’t know you, would you think you’re a douche bag?

MAYER: It depends on what I picked up. My two biggest hits are “Your Body Is a Wonderland” and “Daughters.” If you think those songs are pandering, then you’ll think I’m a douche bag. It’s like I come on very strong. I am a very…I’m just very. V-E-R-Y. And if you can’t handle very, then I’m a douche bag. But I think the world needs a little very. That’s why black people love me.

PLAYBOY: Because you’re very?

MAYER: Someone asked me the other day, “What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, “I can’t really have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.’"

PLAYBOY: It is true; a lot of rappers love you. You recorded with Common and Kanye West, played live with Jay-Z.

MAYER: What is being black? It’s making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted. Taking something that’s seen as a struggle and making it work for you, or you’ll die inside. Not to say that my struggle is like the collective struggle of black America. But maybe my struggle is similar to one black dude’s.

PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?

MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.

PLAYBOY: Let’s put some names out there. Let’s get specific.

MAYER: I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She’s superhot, and she’s also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she’d be like, “Yeah, I sucked his dick. Whatever.” And you’d be like
, “What? We weren’t talking about that.” That’s what “Heartbreak Warfare” is all about, when a girl uses jealousy as a tactic.

GV Says: SMH...that this boy has gotten so comfortable. He's smelling himself. Apparently, he thinks he can say anything about anybody and experience no consequences.


The video for Rihanna's "Rude Boy" has hit the net.


NY Daily News reports that John Mayer is putting Jessica Simpson on blast:

According to John Mayer, Jessica Simpson is "crazy" in bed. got a first look at Playboy magazine’s March issue, in which the singer kisses and tells about his high-profile relationship with Simpson.

Calling her "a drug," Mayer, 35, claims that sex with the busty blond singer, whom he dated from 2006 to 2007, was highly addictive for him.

"And drugs aren't good for you if you do lots of them," he says. "Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me."

"Sexually it was crazy. That's all I'll say," he adds. "It was like napalm, sexual napalm. Did you ever say, 'I want to quit my life and just f-----’ snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f--- you, I would start selling all my s--- just to keep f------ you.'"

Mayer’s TMI-interview is almost as revealing as his recent Rolling Stone cover, where he spoke at length about masturbation.

In the Playboy spread, however, he becomes much more reserved in describing his failed relationship with Jennifer Aniston, even denying his song "Heartbreak Warfare" is about her.
"That woman would never use heartbreak warfare," he tells Playboy. "That woman was the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person."

The singer also insists his penchant for Twitter was not the cause of their breakup last year.
"There was a rumor that I'd been dumped because I was tweeting too much," he says. "That wasn't it, but that was a big difference. The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she's still hoping it goes back to 1998.

"She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, 'These are the new rules.'"

Despite his ill-fated romances, Mayer admits to keeping busy between the sheets since becoming single.

"I'm going to say four or five. No more," he says modestly. "But even if I said 12, that's a reasonable number. So is 15. Here's the thing: I get less a-- now than I did when I was in a local band. Because now I don't like jumping through hoops."

For now, he says he is trying to keep his name out of the tabloids and avoid breaking any more hearts.

"I hate being the heartbreaker. Hate it," he says. "If I date somebody and it doesn't work out, it's another nightmare for me."

GV Says: Wow he put Jess on blast. I might have to go Chris Breezy on him for that one. It was so absolutely uncalled for. How long have they been over....Seriously.

Looks like Weezy just bought himself some more time as his sentence has been postponed until March 2.

With the news being announced first from Twitter, reports are stating that the reasoning behind the pushback came as a result of dental surgery that Lil Wayne will have done. Really???

Reports say the rapper has a cracked tooth that needs to be repaired before doing his bid.

Amid shouts of "murderer!" from the onlookers, Michael Jackson's personal physician surrendered today to a courthouse to face a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Dr. Conrad Murray, 57, who once was paid $150,000 a month to treat Jackson before a major comeback concert series, pleaded not guilty to the charge filed earlier in the day by the Los Angeles District Attorney.

Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz set bail for $75,000 – rejecting prosecutors' request for $300,000 – and ordered Murray to surrender his passport. Murray was granted permission to continue practicing medicine as long as he doesn't administer anesthesia.

"I'm talking about deep anesthetic, where you put somebody to sleep," the judge said. "You can be in a room where another doctor is doing it, but you can't do that."

The county coroner says that Jackson was given an overdose of the hospital-strength anesthetic propofol that Jackson was using for insomnia. Jackson was under Murray's care at the time.

The Caribbean-raised physician was driven up in an SUV at the court building near Los Angeles International Airport. Sheriff’s deputies escorted him inside as the crowed yelled.

GV Says: Involuntary manslaughter....are you kidding me? Giving someone anesthesia at their home is straight murder.

Looks like Randy Jackson was also pissed:


Beyonce was spotted waving at fans this morning on her Brazilian balcony sans the makeup and wig.

GV Says: Dang....and this chick still looks good.


Looks like Rihanna is shooting the video for her next single "Rude Boy" - one of my fav songs her her Rated R album.

Big prints, bold colors and a green screen....looks like it may be interesting. A break from her recently over-sexed flavor may be nice.
