Ever since I heard the slowed beat of Ghost Town DJ’s “My Boo” drop, I instantly had Ciara’s latest single “Body Party” on repeat. I knew the video would feature her slithering and sliding in moves that would keep EMTs busy for weeks as women across the country blew out their backs and pulled hamstrings trying to imitate the moves for their men.
I wasn’t disappointed when Ciara scissored her legs in the air for boyfriend Future as they play out how they first met for the video, but it was like deja-vu as I saw her relationship slowly steal the spotlight from her first two singles. Is it me, or does something happen to a recording artist when they fall in love and choose to flaunt it in their work? After watching Ciara’s steamy video for “Body Party,” I couldn’t help but wonder if she’s risking the buzz she’s worked so hard to build back by allowing boyfriend, Future, to make so many appearance.
Mixing business and pleasure is a risky move. There’s something about when celebs turn the camera on to their personal lives that causes their careers and their relationships to fall apart. Here are a few celebs who might want to think about leaving their boo behind-the-scenes in the future.
J.Lo had a pretty good buzz going as a singer even if her “hits” were only heard in the clubs, but as soon as Ben Affleck took J.Lo from the block to the yacht in her Jenny From the Block vid, Jenny’s singing career went man down for a minute and she was left man-less and a little embarrassed. Not to mention Ben credited the cameo with almost ruining his career. And who can forget how clearly sprung she was on the track “Dear Ben,” in which she sings,” I love you, you’re perfect.” Well apparently the feelings weren’t mutual; Ben quickly married another Jennifer after their break up and made like 11 kids with her. Sting. Word of advice for the former fly girl: You can sing all the love songs you want about your boo, just don’t name them after him and throw said boo in all your videos.
Forever 21 revealed its Spring 2013 campaign girl, Cassie!
The model and
wannabe singer posed for the brand 90s L.A. inspired collection. Full of geometric prints, crops tops, some overalls and other form fitting pieces the 26-year-old looks youthful. The collection is divided by the West Side that has laid-back pieces with abstract prints, vibrant sneakers and crop tops, and the East side that has 90s urban Los Angeles style with vintage and alternative style pieces.

Earlier this week rumors swirled that hip-hop bigwig Sean “Diddy” Combs and Sports Illustrated supermodel Kate Upton are involved in a “hot and heavy” whirlwind romance. Sources told Daily News gossip column, Confidential, that the pair were seen making out at club LIV in Miami Beach.
“They were kissing, they weren’t hiding it,” the snitch claimed before going on to say that the two disappeared into VIP and partied together until the wee hours of morning.
Sources also say that the duo were spotted “having dinner” at Gemma in the Bowery Hotel. The story didn’t seem far-fetched, as 43-year-old Diddy seems to have a thing for the youngins and Upton is only a few months shy of her 21st birthday. Diddy, however, came out last night stating that the rumors are false.
Kate also took to Twitter to deny rumors.
A representative on behalf of Upton also denied the rumored love connection to TMZ, saying that the two “barely know each other” and that they aren’t dating.
We imagine Diddy’s long-time rumored girlfriend Cassie Venture is letting out a sigh of relief. The two have been rumored to be carrying on an Ashanti-Nelly styled relationship for the past 5 years. Only last September did Diddy semi-confirm their coupledom when he Instagramed a photo of the singer with a caption that read:
“I’m a very lucky man #knowthat.”
So, what do you think of all of this?
Pshh, Crying? I Just Had Something In My Eye: Ryan Leslie Talks Getting Emotional On Stage And Losing Cassie To Diddy
Mega producer and Harvard graduate, Ryan Leslie recently paid a visit to New York’s Power 105.1 studio for a quite interesting interview with the Breakfast Club. The shows hosts, Angela Yee, Charlemagne and DJ Envy of course asked Leslie some pressing questions that many have been itching to learn the answers to. Charlemagne wasted no time asking about the dramatic triangle that Leslie found himself in with Cassie and Diddy.
“Man, I don’t think anyone of those people, with them not being here, would want me to broach that subject. I mean, I already had a conversation with him. [Diddy].”
He also revealed that he and Cassie had a conversation a little over a year ago. When asked what he thought of Cassie and Diddy’s relationship, Ryan replied:
“It’s life man, people have to do what they wanna do to be happy.”
He was also questioned about a viral video that has been circulating for some time now, which depicts a distraught Leslie crying on stage and burning a copy of the New York Post during one of his concerts.
“Actually, I didn’t cry on stage… I did burn the New York Post and I know what video you’re referring to… I live in a world of viral media. You know what I’m saying, that’s what I built my career on. When that video got more distribution, because everyone thought I was crying on stage, you know, that’s good for the actual message that I had in that video… I was wearing a leather cap on stage, you know, I’m sweating and whatever it was. You know what I’m saying? There was no crying on stage.”
In case you may have missed it, back in 2010, Leslie’s laptop was stolen. He publicly came out and offered $1 million to the person who returned his laptop to him. A man from Germany actually returned the laptop, but when it came time to pay up, Ryan was reluctant. The man took Leslie to court for the reward money and a judge ruled in his favor, ordering Leslie to pay up. After the judge’s ruling, the New York Post published a cover story on the case, where they referred to Ryan as a “rap weasel,” which is why in retaliation, he burned a copy of that issue on stage during a performance.
Peep footage of Ryan’s emotional performance below. Does he look like he was shedding tears or “sweating” like he said?

If Alicia Keys’s “Brand New Me” video wasn’t enough for you today in the “Pass Or Play” department, I thought I’d share this newest joint and video by Cassie called “End Of The Line.” Still going strong trying to make this music thing work (I’m sure most would kick back and let Diddy take care of them), the singer with her still half-shaven head sings about a relationship that’s no longer worth it to make work. Standing in the middle of nowhere wearing a chain-linked halter, white jeans and boots, Cassie does more high fashion as opposed to showcasing serious vocal skills. Seriously, it’s like watching what probably was a gorgeous photo shoot, and then someone decided to stop and make a music video with their free time. While I was hoping it was a hoax, this is the clip that has been circling around the Internet, and it’s definitely tagged as the “official” joint.
As for the track, it’s definitely a little slow and sad for my taste. Slow in the sense that not only are the vocals like someone singing in slow motion stuck in molasses, but the track in itself is kind of depressing. It almost feels like it’s not done being put together in the studio. But I respect Cassie’s hustle, it’s just that she’s so much better at being a beauty and model than she is at trying to be a respectable musician in this rough and tough industry. I appreciate the attempts, but man, I can sooooo do without “End Of The Line.” What about you though? Check out the clip below and let us know what you’re thinking.
Joseline has been making friends with all sorts of people since getting her shine on on Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta and it looks like she’s not only making friends in high places (Hi Cassie), she also upgraded her ‘do. We see you!
Even though Jos already added her own caption to this Instagram pic she posted of her chilling with Cassie — “I Luv my Bad B***h @cassiesuper Bad B***h Crew,” we can’t help but wonder what kind of conversation’s going on between these two. Even though Cassie’s man is the head of Bad Boy and Stevie J used to crank out some hits for the record label, this still seems like an odd pair to to be getting chummy on during their down time don’t you think?
Caption this pic of Joseline and Cassie and tell us what you think they’re talking about.
Hope you’ve had a fashionable week, because the stars were out and about trying to start trends and stay off the “Worst Dressed” lists. Some succeeded, others? Not so much. Let’s take a minute and figure out if these ensembles are steal worthy or if it’s best that they never be duplicated and done again. Shall we?
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “New Normal” star stepped out for the TV Guide Hot List Party in West Hollywood in one of her usual form fitting ensembles and her signature blonde hair. She wore a polyester or possible nylon blend dress that she rocked off the shoulder, and the dress had long sleeves and hugged her around the hips and thighs. To accessorize, Leakes wore open-toe mule heels with pink and red feathers. She also walked out with a circular sparkly clutch, black rings, diamond and silver hoops, and had her signature bang flicking.
While I don’t think she looks bad, I’m kind of bored with the look. Plus, the shoes are horrific, but I do think the dress is a good look for her body shape. Plus, her makeup is pretty, so I’ll give it a pass. Steal.
These lovely, talented ladies started out on the right path. They had legitimate careers, bright futures. And then something happened. Something awful. Whether a questionable romance sidetracked them (Chris Brown, I’m looking at you!) or some odd behavior around town landed them on Bossip, they became hotmess gossip fodder of the Lindsay Lohan variety. Sure some of them have dug their nails into fame, refusing to let go, but others have fallen off Hollywood’s radar, and maybe that’s a good thing for all of humanity. So let’s take a look at some of the singers, actresses and TV personalities who seem more concerned with making headlines than focusing on the talents that made them famous in the first place.
Acting, singing, doing something for a good cause…these are all some perfectly good reasons to become famous. Unfortunately, these don’t apply to the people on this list! It seems like sex tapes, being related to a famous person or hanging out with famous people were the way to go for these women. Somehow, they’ve managed to stay in the spotlight despite having no real skill or talent, unless you consider looking pretty a talent. If you don’t, then these women should not be famous!
There was a time when everyone used to just call Amber Rose Kanye West’s girlfriend…why? Because that’s all she was known for! Then she was known as the women with a blonde buzz cut who was still dating Kanye West. Then she was known as Kanye West’s girlfriend, the one who wears freaky outfits. Notice a trend here? To make matters worse, just when you thought she was falling off the map…then BAM, here comes Mrs. Wiz Khalifa, with a baby to boot!
I don’t know exactly what’s going on in this song or video but there’s a ton of color, a lot of touching, and quite a few bootay shots. But what do you expect from Nicki Minaj and Cassie?
The two ladies joined together for a new single off of Nicki Minaj’s upcoming album, “Roman Reloaded,” titled “The Boys” and in the video they’re experimenting a bit with role-playing and seemingly making fun of all the things men in the industry do — I think. It’s an interesting hip-pop track that will probably get a lot of play in the club and could possibly even boost Cassie’s career. And there’s a funny nod to Joseline and Stebie’s relationship in Nicki’s second verse that the Barbz and “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” fans will love.
Take a listen and tell us what you think.
Do you say pass or play?
