Wiz Khalifa Slated to Perform at MTV Movie Awards-
So far, the entertainment network has announced only two performers for their upcoming Movie Award show: Fun. and Pittsburgh rapper, Wiz Khalifa.
Young Khalifa will likely perform his latest single and first from his sophomore album O.N.I.F.C, “Work Hard, Play Hard,” but hopefully will show case some other hits. Maybe a little “Payphone” action with the dudes from Maroon 5?
We can only hope. More performers to come! You can see it all go down live on Sunday, June 3rd at 9PM EST on MTV.
Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim Continue to Feud-
The back and forth between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim has been going on since the Cash Money rapper first emerged as serious contender for the “Femcee Crown” (not that it really exists, but if it did…).
In a recent interview in New York, Lil Kim spoke on their ongoing beef, MTV reported. She explained that in trying to get to know Nicki, she was not so pleased with what she found. “The problem with her is she was very catty with it. I never had a problem with her — I was always, always nice with her, always,” said Kim of Nicki Minaj. “She was a very obnoxious person, but I was always nice with her.”
Beyond just calling Nicki obnoxious, Queen Bee also claimed that Minaj’s song “Automatic” from Pink Friday Roman Reloaded sounds a lot like an unreleased track she did with YMCMB in the past. “On her new album, she has a song called ‘Automatic,’ and the song is so similar to the song that I played for Slim,” one of the co-founders of Cash Money and Birdman‘s brother.
Those are hefty claims! Nicki Minaj has been defending her unique style against critics from every direction and this only adds fuel to the flames.
Not only is she defending her own swag, but now she has to defend against whether or not it’s even her idea to be so swaggerific.
Barbz, Nicki has it tough sometimes. We look forward to a response from her Minajesty.
We’ll keep you posted!
Russell Brand Says He Still “Loves” Katy Perry-
And now in the least dramatic break-up in the history of Hollywood, the former husband of 27-year-old pop singer, Katy Perry says he has nothing but love for the previous lady in his life according to MTV.
That’s right, Russell Brand didn’t want one bit of her money, and now he doesn’t wish her any ill-will or anything. We feel like this is almost unheard of in celebrity divorces, but the odd couple continues to amaze us.
“I still love her as a human being,” the comedian said on Ellen. “But sometimes when you’re in a relationship, I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything. I was very happy to be married with her. She’s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.”
Did you read that? He called her a beautiful human being! Is this real?
He continued on with his positive views on moving on and growing from life, “You can’t absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life,” he added. “Sometimes things are just different and then you have to just move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and with each other with any situation.”
We’ll have some of whatever he’s having. Love it!
