Beyoncé & Jay-Z Head To Lunch With Baby Blue

According to Theybf:

It’s B.I.C.’s first outing caught by the paps!  New parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z were spotted holding their new baby girl extra close while heading out to lunch in New York City this (Saturday) afternoon.

The Carters may have already revealed their personal pics of Blue Ivy to the world, but they had the 7-week-old bundled up head to toe this afternoon to protect her from the nipping 40 degree weather:

Mama Bey rocked her black sneakers while carrying their precious cargo.  Jay-Z and security guards remained extra close as the family headed to the West Village to chow down at Sant Ambroeus Restaurant.  Cute!

Beyoncé isn’t letting mommyhood slow her down–she’s already got two new projects in the works (including a new album) and just released a preview of House of Dereon’s Spring 2012 collection.  And Papa Jay just returned from a whirlwind trip to London to help his Roc Nation signee, Rita Ora, debut her brand new track “Party & Bullsh*t.

According to theybf:

Jim Jones is up to his old hood tricks again.  But to his defense, he didn’t throw the first punch.  After a night of partying at Diddy‘s event at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Connecticut, the night ended with Jimmy getting maced and in cuffed.  Deets inside…

What’s a Diddy party without cops showing up?  Reports just emerged saying “Ballin” rapper Jimmy Jones got into an altercation with a random ish talking guy who approached him at the Connecticut casino & resort.  Jimmy ignored him, but when dude hauled off and hit

TMZ reports:

…A guy, who seemed intoxicated, came up to Jones and started talking smack to him, which Jones tried to ignore.

According to our sources, the guy then hit Jones in the face and Jones fought back in self defense. Then the guy’s friends jumped in … then Jim’s people jumped in … and IT WAS ON!!!

We’re told Jones had no idea who the guy was or what triggered his beef with Jones.

Sources close to Jones say he was arrested and it took the aforementioned cops and mace to bring him in. We’re told he has since bonded out and is headed back home soon.

Goodness.  In the wee hours of this morning, Jim took to his Twitter to say he’s going to try to make his bond money back at the craps table:

40k in bonds 1 night had a ball lets see of I can get tht 40 back on th crap table wooord #vampirelife

No word on if his “Love & Hip Hop” fiancée, Chrissy Lampkin, was by his side during the bruhaha.

‘Terrorists’ Target Tyler Perry’s ‘Good Deeds’

According to ATLien:

Tyler Perry‘s Good Deed’s movie’s not even out yet and someone has already staged a protest about the mega producer/screenwriter/director/actor’s leading man debut!

 And by “protest” I mean they vandalized TP’s brand new billboard with a message… (the nerve!)

Dang… didn’t he just bring Madea outta retirement? What more do you people want from him?!*sigh*

Find out what the “Xpo Terrorist” has to ‘say above’

The above billboard, inscribed with the plaintive plea ‘Stop letting him make movies,’ sits at the corner of Fountain Ave. and Landa Street. For those unfamiliar with LA, we’re talking smack-dab in the middle of a proudly Bohemian burgh, where the music conservatory is owned by Flea and the nearby middle school has an environmental magnet. (source)

BTW… Perry just had the screening/red carpet premiere of the film in L.A. just last week (click HERE for the photos).

Perry’s latest flick, in which he stars as a married businessman who crosses paths with a struggling single-mom cleaning lady (Thandie Newton), opens this Friday (February 24, 2012).

Miami DA Considers Arrest Warrant for Chris Brown

According to, a woman’s story about troubled singer Chris Brown snatching her cell phone was credible enough for the DA to consider taking out a warrant for his arrest.

According to TMZ, Christal Spann, 24, filed a police report Sunday for “robbery by snatching.” She claimed she followed Chris and rapper Tyga as they were leaving Cameo nightclub in Miami early Sunday morning. She said she got close enough to snap a picture of Chris and Tyga as they sat in his Bentley.

That’s when, according to the police report, Chris flipped out, rolled down his car window and grabbed her cell phone, saying, “Bitch, you’re not gonna put that on the Internet.”

According to the police report, Chris then rolled up his window and sped off, taking the $500 iPhone with him.

There is no indication in the police report what Chris Brown and Tyga were doing in the picture, and why it was so important for Chris to jeopardize his probation status to prevent Crystal from uploading the photo to the Internet.

The most important thing is: if Brown is arrested, he will violate his probation in California for the Rihanna assault case — and he will be thrown in jail to serve out his sentence!

DDMMX Talks RAP BEEF With Jay-Z, Says He’s Not Feelin’ Drake Or Rick Ross Either

Promoting his upcoming album Undisputed (March 27), DMX stopped by The Breakfast Club where he talked about Jay-Z being jealous of his talent, why he never recorded an album with Ja Rule and what rappers he likes and doesn’t like.  Listen to it inside….

During his interview with TBC, it became apparent that DMX is actually pretty funny.  He’s surprisingly quick witted and had a joke for everything.

But when the subject of beefs came up, he became extra serious.  He said he thinks Def Jam stopped focusing on him as an artist AFTER Jay-Z took the reigns.  He pretty much said Jay was jealous of his talent and wanted to take out the competition.

He said the album with Ja Rule never happened because of their egos.

And he jokingly said he doesn’t like Rick Ross lyrically….and added that he talks about food entirely too much.

He then dissed Drake saying, “I don’t like anything about Drake.  I don’t like his voice.  I don’t like anything he talks about.  I don’t like his face…..”

Damn.  Everybody’s hating Drizzy these days.  Also, X told a funny story about the time he impersonated a cop.

Meagan Good REFLECTS On Her Friendship With Whitney Houston And Hints That Biopic May Still Happen

According to Theybf:

Before her death, Whitney Houston was considering turning her life into a movie with Meagan Good in the lead role.  See what Meagan had to say about Whitney’s sassy spirit and if the film will still happen ….

Meagan Good recently revealed to E! Online that she and Whitney previously discussed a possible movie for Meagan to star in….based on Whitney. Meagan recently talked about the flick and what she remembers about Whitney.

“We were fairly in the beginning stages,” Meagan said at the Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture’s Vanities party at Siren Studios in Hollywood this week. She said a big concern was how the movie would end.

“My feeling is because she has the film Sparkle coming out and she’s brilliant in it and she looks beautiful and healthy, my feeling was that’s how we should end the movie—as a new beginning for her.”

If the movie does get made, don’t expect Meagan to do any singing.

“I don’t think we’ve ever had a singer in history that I remember that could sing like her.  Plus, when people see someone’s life story they want to hear that person’s voice because they connect with it, in their spirit and their soul. So you would have to use her voice.”

While discussing Whitney (in the present tense) Meagan began to get emotional saying,

“For anybody spending time around Whitney, she’s so much fun.  She’s got just like a sassy attitude and is very funny and funky. She’s definitely a fun person to be around.”

Star Jones RETURNS To “The View”, Says Her Departure Was UGLY (VIDEO)

Image via Wikipedia


According to Theybf:

After a five year absence, Star Jones returned to “The View” today, as a guest, for a semi-uncomfortable interview about her weight, heart disease and why she left the show.  Watch it inside…..

It wasn’t always pretty, but Star Jones faced the ladies of “The View” today helping raise awareness about heart disease, gastric bypass and talking about her departure 6 years ago.

Barbara Walters commented: “I say this genuinely: I am so happy to welcome back Star Jones.”

SIDEBAR:  How geniune it came off is up for debate.

Star commented on the past five years saying, “You’ve got a new  new couch…you’ve got two black girls. Sherri and I are not the same person. Elisabeth had more children. Joy got married!”

Star tried to stop Ms. Walters when she tried to talk about the past saying, “Are we really going to go here, Barbara? Do we care at this point?! I honestly don’t.”

But Star went ahead and said the reason she left the show the way she did was (in addition to her contract just not being renewed), “It was ugly. … It was a bad emotional time.  I made the decision that I wanted to go out on my own terms.”

Then Barbara talked about Star’s gastric bypass saying,

“Just to clear it up, we tried to protect you.  We did lie! (Joy Behar also interjected that Star asked them to lie about the gastric bypass.) We were very worried about you.

Babs later added, “You look great. You look healthy. And we really are happy that you’re back.”

Also, Star’s book Satan Sisters, is being made into a VH1 movie that will be produced by Suzanne de Passe.
