Mariah Carey appeared on the "Today" show this morning and admitted what we all could this point. She's expecting.

"Yes, we are pregnant. This is true," Carey, 41, said on the Today show Thursday morning as part of a sneak peek at a three-part Access Hollywood interview. "It's been a long journey. It's been tough because I've been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy." Husband Nick Cannon, 30, joined the interview to talk about the "absolutely emotional" news, adding, "The greatest gift on earth is a child."

Carey, who also told of a miscarriage two years ago, would not reveal her due date. She would only say "it's still early" and "expecting is great." Ever-supportive Cannon said of the loss, "It strengthened our relationship so much … she handled it so well."

GV Says: I'm not mad at her. At her age, it's not something you go around telling everyone. She is considered high risk so her medical issues are not the same as a 20-something woman expecting. It's her personal experience so it's up to her when to share. Congratulations girl!

More drama for Lil Weezy. He's at the center of a new Rikers Island controversy: A veteran Correction Department captain was suspended for hanging out in his cell, the NY Daily News has learned.

"We don't know what he was doing. We know the camera picked him up," said one source.

Collazzo's explanation "did not suffice to explain the time he spent" with the rapper, who is serving a one-year sentence for a loaded gun on his tour bus, the source added.

Collazzo was suspended without pay for 10 days, said agency spokeswoman Sharman Stein, who declined to elaborate.

Patrick Ferraiuolo, president of the union for correction captains, said Collazzo has "at least 20 years" on the job, and maintains he didn't break any rules.

"I spoke to the captain and I said, 'Do you know what's going on?'" Ferraiuolo said. "He goes: 'I have done nothing wrong...I don't have any dealings with this guy.'"

Weezy is expected to be released early next month. His stay on Rikers has been eventful.

Soon after he arrived, a correction officer was canned because she was caught making an unexplained pop-in at the area housing the rapper's cell.

Correction officials say Amelia Negron got the boot for missing work. Negron claims superiors pressured her into saying she was trying to cozy up to Lil Wayne.

Earlier this month, Lil Wayne was shipped to an isolation cell - known as The Bing - after being caught with forbidden headphones and a charger for an MP3 player.

GV Says: What is it with this guy. He's got men and women losing their minds.


Mariah Carey may end her silence about her widely rumored pregnancy as early as tomorrow. She is reportedly making an announcement tomorrow on the "Today" show, and she has also scheduled an interview with "Access Hollywood" set to run early next week. The news coincides with the release of her new holiday album, "Merry Christmas II You," next Tuesday.


Rihanna turned up at a Fifth Avenue Barnes & Noble bookstore to sign copies of her new book.

The book is a photographic document of the year that followed the release of her last album Rated R and the Last Girl on Earth Tour.

"I think it was really special to have behind-the-scenes photos, you know, pictures that the fans haven't seen before, all together of a very specific moment of my life, an album of my life," Rihanna told reporters.

"They just get to see all the things that they hadn't seen that were going on behind the scenes; really cool stuff, not typical. They're really fun photos. And even for me, when I look at them, they say so much. Photos really tell a thousand words."

Her fifth album, Loud, is just weeks from its November 16 release.


Looks like Alicia is settling into motherhood nicely. She took to her blog recently...

Every moment is beautiful; delicious even! Every moment I'm learning and living in a way I never have before. Being present in a way I never have before. Existing in moments I never have before.

Never have I felt so calm, so purposeful in taking the time to truly observe the world around me, to live in it fully and watch it, discuss it, put time toward it. It feels really incredible - so peaceful, so complete and long overdue.

I'm grown, I'm confident, I'm secure, and so blessed to be these things.

I'm most enamored with anatomy at this point. The miracle of the human body. The ability to create all these small amazing machines of veins, capillaries, digestive systems, eyes, ears and noses. I can spend HOURS looking at one little EAR! Have u ever noticed how complex just an ear is? A tiny maze of art. It may sound silly but it's so true. Or a heartbeat? Everyday we wake up and in some way, take for granted the fact that this beautiful pulsating organ in our body is the reason, and yet now that's all I can think of...

And breath; invisible as it may be, how necessary!

Ain't it true that things we really can't see are of the greatest importance?

I've never seen a more beautiful face in my LIFE! The most perfect eyes and beautiful nose, the sweetest lips and skin so soft and kissable!

Never have I felt such disbelief, such awe, humility, godliness, such strength, power and possibility.

I've never believed in greatness and the never ending Higher Power more than now!

And I can't believe he's mine!

Oooh! I feel a song coming on...



Rihanna is gracing the holiday cover of Marie Clare.

In the December issue of Marie Claire UK she tells readers that she doesn't regret the traumatic experience.

"God has a crazy way of working, and sometimes when stuff happens you feel like, 'What did I do to deserve this?' Why was it backfiring on me?'" she recalls. "But I needed that wake-up call in my life. I needed a turning point, and that's what God was giving to me."

"I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it. It was a different day. I felt different. I didn't feel lonely," she recalls. "I felt like I wanted to get up and be in the world. That was a great, great feeling."

And she hasn't looked back since.

"I feel like I smile for real this time. The smiles come from inside, and it exudes in everything I do," she says. "People feel my energy is different. When I smile they can tell that it's pure bliss and not just a cover up."

In case you missed Kanye's mini movie premiere.

"Runaway," is a 30 minute parable about his rebirth in response to last year's VMA incident with Taylor Swift.

In West's directorial debut, Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks plays a phoenix that falls to Earth in a ball of flame.

According to, West has said the phoenix's crash parallels the crash of his career after he bogarted the mic from Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009.

"The next day I wake up and people are saying, 'die n-gga die,' only cause you tried to make a change," the singer said at "Runaway's" New York premiere, according to "I lost my tour, I lost my clothing line, my mother passed. Even this film was shot down, but we're rockstars– f--- your opinion."

Halle Berry has stepped out with her new man Oliver Martinez. The two met on the set of their upcoming movie "Dark Tide." .....Cute....


LA prosecutors have declined to file a felony drug charge against T.I. stemming from his arrest last month on the Sunset Strip.

According to a charge evaluation worksheet released Monday, deputies found four ecstasy pills on the 30-year-old rapper from Atlanta.

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., was on supervised release after serving 10 months in prison for federal weapons charges when he was arrested Sept. 1. A Georgia judge earlier this month sentenced him to another 11 months in prison for breaking his federal parole with the latest arrest.

As a condition of his release earlier this year, Harris was ordered not to commit another federal, state or local crime while on supervised release, or to illegally possess a controlled substance. He was also told to take at least three drug tests after his release and to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program.

The deputy district attorney in LA who rejected the case cited the sentence and the small amount of drugs found as reasons drug charges aren't being pursued.

"The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office's decision to reject TI's case was the right thing to do under the circumstances," Harris' attorney, Steve Sadow, wrote in an e-mail. He commended the office for "exercising its discretion to reject prosecution in light of the legal and factual issues involved."

T.I. is expected to begin his prison term on Nov. 1.


LeBron is back and he's had enough. He knows he lost a lot of fans this summer, destroying his once-powerful likability by announcing his move to Miami in the one-hour special dubbed "The Decision."

Now the basketball powerhouse seems ready to reclaim his image, addressing the controversy he created in a glossy new ad from Nike that has rocketed around the internet since making its debut on YouTube Monday.

In the ad, James takes fans back to "The Decision," sitting pensively on a studio set that mimics where he made his infamous announcement.

"What should I do?" he asks, turning to face the camera -- and his critics. "Should I admit that I've made mistakes?"

Nike says the campaign, called "Rise," is a way for James to confront naysayers, letting him speak to "his off-season controversy head-on," according to

The ad will air for the first time on TV Tuesday, as James and his new team, the Miami Heat, take on the Boston Celtics.

Looks like the recent attention on her rock/ relationship was all too much for the singer. She's out.....

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


Say it ain't so. This fool done gone and had his God given teeth replaced...SMH.

After tweeting a picture in July that showed he had a mouth full of bling, Kanye explained on the "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Tuesday that he actually had gold and diamonds inserted to replace his bottom of row of teeth because he "just thought the diamonds were cooler."

That echoes a similar remark he made in an interview for Vanity Fair's Nov. issue, after he was asked why he had "permanent diamonds drilled into [his] bottom teeth."
"I just like diamond teeth and I didn't feel like having to take them out all the time," West said.

GV Says: WTF?


So the NY Daily News is reporting that B is preggers...Don't know how true that is but...

they're reporting she's in her first trimester. And it doesn't sound like the bundle of joy was necessarily planned.

"B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn't ready to be a mother just yet," one source told the magazine. "She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again."

Check out Willow Smith's new video "Whip My Hair." Too cute!!!


Take a look now boys. Kim says this is it....

The reality star has said that after taking it off for W magazine's November issue, she may be keeping her clothes on for good (or, at least in front of the cameras).

"I wanted to get it all out of my system before I turned 30," Kardashian told Saturday at her Tao New York birthday bash – the second one marking the happy occasion, though she doesn't officially turn the big 3-0 until Thursday.

"I'm too old for that now," she explained, adding that she "doesn't know" if she'll ever pose nude again.

Of course, this is the same person who once said she regretted doing her Playboy shoot and then took it all off for Harper's Bazaar, so this swan song might have a refrain.

In the meantime, Kardashian plans to show off something else: her new wheels.

She revealed to "Extra" that she buys herself a birthday present and Christmas gift each year and "thought at 30 I'd go all-out."

The car?

A $250,000 Rolls-Royce Ghost.


The NY Daily News reports that Eminem was bullied so badly as a child his mother sued the Detroit school system for failing to protect him.

The torment of the then 9-year-old Marshall Mathers began on Oct. 15, 1981, when he was beset by a bully at the Dort Elementary School who split his lip and knocked the wind out of him, according to court papers unveiled Monday by the Smoking Gun website.

The bully, who caused Eminem to suffer from "nightmares and anti-social behavior," was identified in the papers as DeAngelo Bailey.

More beatings at the hands of Bailey followed, including one in a restroom that left young Marshall with "sustained injuries to his head, face, back and legs," the papers state.

On a snowy day in January 1982, Bailey nailed the future superstar in the face with a "snowball containing a heavy object or a piece of ice" while they were playing "King of the Hill" before beating him up, the papers state.

As a result of that attack, Eminem's mother, Debbie, claimed her son suffered a concussion and a temporary loss of vision in one eye.

Debbie Mathers Briggs' lawsuit for $10,000 in damage was eventually dismissed on the grounds of "governmental immunity," the Smoking Gun reported.

But Eminem got his revenge against Bailey in 1999, when he outed him as a bully in a rap song called "Brain Damage."

Some of the lyrics went:

"He banged my head against the urinal till he broke my nose/ Soaked my clothes in blood, grabbed me and choked my throat."

Bailey sued the rapper for violating his privacy in 2001 but admitted in interviews that he bullied Eminem. A judge later tossed Bailey's lawsuit and explained her ruling by writing a rap verse of her own:

"Bailey thinks he's entitled to some monetary gain/Because Eminem used his name in vain."

Now 38, Eminem has been speaking out about bullying amid a plague of suicides by kids who mostly got picked on for being gay. He also also been accused of fueling anti-gay bullying peppering his rap songs with slurs against homosexuals.

NY Daily News is reporting that Justin Bieber is being investigated for assault in British Columbia, Canada, this weekend, following a 12-year-old's claim that Bieber hit him on Friday during a game of laser tag.

But sources now say that Bieber was only defending himself, and that his accuser was actually taunting him with gay slurs.

Bieber, 16, reportedly showed up at Planet Lazer with two body guards and proceeded to play a round of laser tag with about a dozen other kids, according to

The owner of the facility told the Canadian news site that the singer was kicked out of the building after the boy complained to the staff.

Canadian blogger spoke to staffers at Planet Lazer who said Bieber "accidentally" hit a boy after being cornered during the game.

According to sources who witnessed the encounter, TMZ reports that the 12-year-old repeatedly went after Bieber, harassing him and specifically targeting him.

When Bieber asked him to lay off and play by the rules, the boy said, "What are you going to do about it faggot?"

He reportedly continued to taunt Bieber, saying "You're a faggot," again and sticking his hand out, which the singer pushed away.

The gossip site reports that the assault complaint was filed by the boy's father, who had repeatedly announced "I'm a lawyer" during the incident.

GV Says: Good for you Biebs. You can't have people punking you.


So Nick Cannon flipped after E! talk show host Chelsea Handler bashed him on Twitter a couple of days ago.

"I just heard nick cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who's going to do the comedy?" Handler tweeted Thursday.

Cannon, who was preparing for a weekend show at the Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan, issued a quick response that led to a Twitter feud spanning the rest of Thursday evening.

"Wow @chelseahandler I actaully used to have respect for you as a comic. But for one artist to diss another in the same art form. #Tasteless," Cannon posted. "Soon as I get off stage tonight, I'm going in on @chelseahandler I'm about to be relentless! OFF WITH HER HEAD but right now I got to focus."

Handler responded by tweeting a picture of grape soda and the caption, "@nickcannon pls drink this before you tweet me again."

From then on, Cannon dominated the back-and-forth, running up a series of tweets demeaning the "Chelsea Lately" host.

"Everyone knows @Chelseahandler had sex with the head of E! for her show," Cannon tweeted, referencing rumors that Handler got her own show because she was dating the head of E! at the time. "So when its canceled does he get residual p---y for the reruns?"

Cannon later slammed the comic's looks, saying she looked like she got "hit in the face with a hot bag nickels" and that her recent night out with rapper 50 Cent was just so the two could share "testosterone tips."

Handler, who has a history of shooting down her critics, has yet to respond to Cannon's comments.

Cannon ended the rant with a tweet directed at Handler, shock jock Howard Stern and rapper Eminem, all of whom have insulted the comedian in the past.

"Why do all these angry ugly whitetrash folks want beef with me?" he tweeted in exasperation. "What I do? I'm a harmless corny dude!"

GV Says: What is Chelsea talking about....Nick not funny??? I thought "hit in the face with a hot bag nickels" was pretty darn funny.

So Usher has admitted that his split with Tameka Foster help put him back in the limelight?

"In an era when sensationalism is more prevalent than anything, yeah [the split helped my popularity]," Usher admitted to "Playboy" in its November issue. "People love a train wreck. Lindsay Lohan -- everybody is eager to see how that comes out. This is somewhat the same thing."

Everybody is also eager to see who will steal the 32-year-old father's heart next. We'll have to wait a little while though; Usher says he's not in a hurry to settle down again. "Seeing how marriage didn't work out for me the first time, I'm in no rush to do it again," he said. "Maybe I can find a couple of women with an open-mind. Look at how Hugh Hefner does it, with a harem of women."

She's asking for an injunction, to stop the distribution of the "sex addict" episode, as well as $3 million.

Philadelphia radio personality "Jonsey" aka Miss Jones, recently pleaded guilty to a count of disorderly conduct, after an altercation with her ex-husband in June.

Jonesy, born Tarsha Jones, shot to fame as a singer, on classic tracks like "Where I Wanna Be Boy" and AZ and Nas' song "Sugar Hill."

She has remained in the public spotlight as a radio personality, first on Hot 97 in New York and at her current gig as morning host on Power 99FM.

According to reports, Jonesy was involved in physical altercation with her former husband Kolon Patrick in which she punched him and attempted to strike him with her Mercedes.

Patrick was also arrested in the incident and also pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. Both were hit with small fines for the incident.

"This was more of a misunderstanding and a disagreement over something minor," Kevin Hexstall, Jones' attorney, told The Philadelphia Daily News.

Kolon and Jones finalized their divorce last April.

The NY Dailyl News reports that Mimi didn't exactly squash pesky pregnancy rumors at husband Nick Cannon's 30th birthday dinner at Lavo NYC on Friday night.

Upon arriving, she refused to pose for pictures outside the club and insisted on entering Lavo through the back door.

Once inside, she spent much of the evening shrouded in a black trench coat, and only after the festivities were well underway was she coaxed into taking a few photos.

According to the spy, "Mariah wasn't really mingling," our source observes. Instead, she sat in the same place "practically the whole night."

The 40-year-old Carey didn't even try Cannon's birthday cake, which took the form of a large No. 30. And, despite her reported love of Champagne, she stuck strictly to cranberry cocktail juice, further fueling rumors that she's carrying Cannon's child.

The "touchy feely" couple departed directly after dinner, although not before more drama ensued.

Carey, we're told, wanted to exit as she entered - through the back door - for an unusual reason. Leaving via the front involved traversing two steps, and, our insider overheard the singer's handlers discussing that "Mariah doesn't do stairs" - perhaps because of her sparkly, skyscraper-high black heels.

When it was determined, however, that paparazzi had amassed at Lavo's rear entrance and that the front door was the most secure way to exit the building, Carey braved the two-step descent and she and Cannon made their escape.

Toni Braxton has filed for bankruptcy....again!!! WTH..

According to, the singer has filed for bankruptcy this week, which is the second time in 12 years.

Braxton, who filed the paperwork in California, reportedly claimed her worth is between $1 million and $10 million, but she has allegedly up to $50 million in debt.

She lists nearly two dozen creditors whom she may owe money to, including AT&T, Tiffany & Co., Neiman Marcus, Flamingo Las Vegas and Cedars-Sinai Medical, according to TMZ.

Braxton, who turns 43 today, has had a number of health problems in recent years – she has suffered from heart disease and had a benign tumor removed from her breast in 2008.
The one-time Las Vegas headliner may also have unpaid debts to DMVs in Nevada and California.

Braxton filed for bankruptcy for the first time in 1998, and was hit by the IRS with a $396,000 tax lien earlier this year.

On how long he was thinking about divorcing Tameka
“During our disagreements, that’s when I really began to contemplate marriage and if this is someone whom I’m compatible with. Anytime we had a disagreement or an argument, I began to contemplate: Wow, is this really gonna work out? I’m going through hell right now, given the fact that people have an opinion about our relationship. I can’t be unhappy at home and fighting the wars or the opinions outside… ‘You should’ve handled things this way,’ ‘I wish you would’ve said this,’ ‘You’re handling me wrong,’ ‘I don’t like the way I’m feeling about this’—it could be anything, man.”

GV Says: Usher is a real kiss-and-tell type dude. NOT cute!!!

Mario was arrested in Baltimore Friday for allegedly assaulting his mother, reported.

Mom Shawnita Hardaway reportedly told cops that Mario was "throwing and damaging property" and pushing her with his hands and forearms. Police found several broken items in the apartment the 24-year-old singer shares with his mother, including a smashed mirror and a broken china cabinet, according to TMZ.
Police also reportedly found a hole in the closet door. Hardaway, a former heroin addict, reportedly told police that her son had assaulted her earlier in the week as well, an instance where he pushed her eight feet across the room into a wall. The singer's relationship with his mother has been a cornerstone of his career. In 2007, an MTV documentary titled "I Won't Love You to Death" chronicled his efforts to help Hardaway curb her addiction.
Mario was officially arrested Friday morning for second-degree assault and released on $50,000 bond.
GV Says: Now there's never a reason to assualt your mom, but I gotta say a heroin addict may push you over the edge. Plus, I did watch that MTV special and you could tell that he really loved his mom. Hope everything works out.
