Hello Everybody!!!! It’s been a minute since I did a celebrity gossip and urban news post so I just wanted to update you on some things and give you my perspectives.
On May 23, Lil Wayne decided to express his feelings on Twitter about Pusha T. Apparently Lil Wayne felt like Pusha T was coming at him and his Young Money crew on his new song “Exodus 2:31.” Pusha T rhymes “contract all f’d up./ I guess that means you all f’d./ You signed to one n***a, then signed to another n***a, then signed to three n****s./ Now that’s bad luck.”
I’m actually anticipating a reply back from Pusha T because I can’t say he wasn’t coming at Young Money.I think Pusha T’s subliminal diss definitely relates to the Young Money Camp. I don’t think Wayne should have went on twitter with a rant though. But since he did he could have at least mentioned Pusha T. It just seems like Twitter has been stirring up controversy making me feel like celebrities tweet reckless things just for publicity. Lil Wayne needs to get off twitter and figure out why he’s wearing my little sister’s leggings.
Drake & Chris Brown Unreleased Track “Yahama Mama”
I remember when Soulja Boy first released this track when I was in high school a couple of years ago. I never really liked Soula Boy’s verses but I feel in love with Chris Brown’s chorus. I think I even had this as a ringtone. Well for all you Drake and Chris Brown fans there has been an unreleased collaboration version of the ‘Yamaha Mama’ song. I love the song but I can tell that these Drake verses are old. This song has the potential to be a Summer hit. Hopefully these fellas can be cordial again and officially get back in the studio together!

Deangelo’s GQ Magazine Interview
I am so excited that D’angelo is coming back to us!!! In his first interview (and magazine shoot) in 12 years, D’Angelo talks to the June 2012 issue of GQ Magazine about what he’s been up to in his time off from music, why he left the industry without warning over 10 years ago, his run-ins with the law, his struggles with substance abuse and more.(gossiponthis.com)
From the GQ June 2012 issue…
D’Angelo on the evil forces in music, and how much power music has:
“There’s forces that are going on that I don’t think a lot of motherf**kers that make music today are aware of. It’s deep. I’ve felt it. I’ve felt other forces puling at me.” He stubs out his cigarette and leans toward me, taking my hand. “This is a very powerful medium that we are involved in,” he says gravely. “I learned at an early age that what we were doing in the choir was just as important as the preacher. It was a ministry in itself. We could stir the pot, you know? The stage is our pulpit, and you can use all of the energy and that music and the lights and the colors and the sound. But you know, you’ve got to be careful.”
Angie Stone — the mother of one of D’Angel’s kids — recalls an incident where she was pushed to the side at an awards show so he could walk the red carpet with Vivica Fox, instead of her:
Stone remembers an event in Manhattan in September 1996 that was billed as Giorgio Armani’s tribute to D’Angelo. Stone-thirteen years older than D-was three months pregnant with their son. They headed to the event together in a limo, but as they neared the venue where D was going to perform, it suddenly pulled over. “He was asked to get into another car, where he would be escorted by Vivica Fox,” Stone says, her voice breaking slightly. The lissome Fox had just appeared with Will Smith in the blockbuster Independence Day. “It was a Hollywood moment. They wanted a trophy girl. I had to walk in behind them to flashing cameras. It started the wheels turning of what was yet to come.”
D’Angelo will also be performing at the Jay-Z’s Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia this September.
I think D’Angelo’s views on the entertainment industry is so real. Whether you believe it or not this is a business and with every business there are powerful forces running behind them. I also feel as though Angie Stone endured a lot with D’angelo while she was with him just because she didn’t have that typical model girl look. I think the entertainment is still in some ways forcing celebrities in situations like Angie’s and D’angelo’s. It’s now up to these celebrities to take control of their personal lives because at the end of the day the media only cares about your image not necessarily you.
