Dare we say it, but last night’s episode of LHHNY wasn’t that bad. Of course bad for these folks is like atrocious for the average American citizen, but all in all the ratchet, or shall we say royalty, was kept somewhat to a minimum. Here are some of the mildly messy moments from LHHNY Episode 7.
This past weekend, this year’s Grammy nominations were announced and as always there were some surprises, some injustices and some people, who perhaps, got too much love. And as always there were scorned artists taking to Twitter to express their outrage. Here are 10 of our thoughts regarding some of 2013 Grammy nominations.
How did TGT get on the list?
No shade but we are honestly surprised. Not because these men can’t sing..individually but collectively TGT has been struggling quite a bit since they’ve reemerged as the R&B supergroup. Ginuwine was my girlhood crush so believe me it hurts me to say that. But with embarrassing live performances , Ginuwine’s drunken tweets, Tyrese passing out in the club and an album that many of described as sub-par, it’s surprising that they made the cut. I’m happy for them though…just shocked.
The Grammy Nominations concert was held Friday night in Los Angeles and in the midst of all the performances, Jay-Z emerged as the 2013 King of music, leading the way with 9 Grammy nominations.
Although he ranked Magna Carter Holy Grail as his fifth favorite album of his long discography, competition was still for Jay and it is a bit surprising that he’s at the top of the leaderboard. His nominations include Best Rap Album for MCHG and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Part II (On The Run)” featuring Beyoncé. The latter has actually helped Bey become the most nominated Female artist in Grammy history with 46 nominations!
On The R&B side of things, Tamar Braxton came away with three nominations, including one for Best R&B contemporary album You know “SHE” will be talking about this forever. Newcomer Mack Wilds was also nominated in the same category for his mixtape New York: A Love Story.
John Legend was only nominated for one award and wife Chrissy Teigen described it as “some bulls**t. Some f***ing bulls**t.” You have to love a woman who’ll say the things her man won’t say due to music industry “politics.”
Noticeably absent from the list of nominations was Janelle Monaé. Electric Lady was pushed nonstop leading up to its early September release date and while it seemed to be popular among consumers, the Grammy committee didn’t appear to feel the same way.
K. Michelle also feels she was snubbed. After the show was over, she immediately took to Twitter:
Well, okay then, girl.
The 56th Grammy Awards will take place Sunday, January 26, 2014 in Los Angeles. Check here for a complete list of Grammy nominations.
Sometimes an artist takes the stage and blows everyone away with a great performance. And sometimes, the performance is overshadowed by an embarrassing outfit blunder. Hey, it happens to the best of them. Check out the worst celebrity performance outfits ever.
After living in the shadows of her big sister Toni Braxton, and then her other sisters, Tamar has finally stepped into the spotlight all on her own. The “Love and War” singer took to the stage at the 2013 Soul Train Awards in a risqué outfit and immediately there was a backlash on social networks. Many believed the sheer outfit, complete with black sequins to cover up her goodies, was a distraction from her singing ability. Not one to let the criticism keep her down, Braxton responded to the flack via twitter: “I’m NOT on the red carpet & if u like my performance & outfit thank u if not pray 4 me.”
Last night, BET and Centric both aired the Soul Train Awards (which were taped at the beginning of November) and during the show, there were some major wins for both Tamar Braxton and K. Michelle. While K took home the Best New Artist award, Tamar picked up the “Song of the Year” award for “Love and War,” the Best R&B/Soul Female Artist award, and lastly, the Ashford and Simpson Songwriter’s Award. It was a great night for both women, and K took to her Twitter last night to respond to all the congrats and good wishes from her fans. But she also took a moment to extend an olive branch (her final one) to Tamar after everything they’ve been through.
I’m sure you’re fully aware of the back and forth these ladies have had ever since it was alleged that Tamar spoke out against K last year after the LHHATL said that Memphitz used to abuse her (Memphitz is of course the husband of Toya Wright, a friend of Tamar’s). Since then, folks have been called Muppets, irrelevant and more. But maybe the excitement over the Soul Train Awards caused K to have a change of heart, because this is what she had to say on Twitter late last night:
I’ll try this 1mo time. Congrats @tamarbraxtonher We both been through hell fighting 4a dream. Let’s cut the shit and inspire.

Tamar hasn’t responded as of yet, and really, I doubt that she will. OH WELL. Kudos to K for trying to let bygones be bygones, but it’s best if both ladies just hush up when it comes to each other and sing. Congratulations to the both of them on picking up some major trophies at the Soul Train Awards. They better do it!
If you missed both women win their awards, you can check out video of their acceptance speeches below, and see more video of their performances over at BET.com:
Well, it looks like our girl K.Michelle is in the middle of some more drama. The good news, however, is that it doesn’t appear that she started it. Over the weekend, the “V.S.O.P.” singer took to Instagram and Twitter claiming that her ex-boyfriend, Knicks player J.R. Smith’s new girlfriend, Ashley, had been harassing her.
“Don’t call me confronting me about [your] man if you don’t have a job. [You] should be calling manpower fire crotch!” she tweeted
“Have a seat @isthather. I’m SINGLE. Get yo money stop harassing me!” she added.
She also reportedly tweeted Ashley’s phone number with a caption that read:
“Call a THOT.”
Judging by K’s response, we’ll assume that Ashley tried to question her about her relationship with J.R. During a recent interview with Karen Civil, the Love & Hip Hop star discussed her recent feud with her ex-boo’s new lady.
“I just feel like with the J.R. and Ashley situation, I don’t know if they’re a couple. I don’t care. I’m on the road. I’m trying to work and I pick up my phone, I just had a great night, a great Soul Train Awards Performance. I pick up my phone and it’s a girl randomly on my phone asking me about her man. If he’s your man, honey, you don’t have to call and ask me about it, okay? So obviously that’s not your man.”
K went on to advise Ashley that her guy’s private could be community property.
“He might be community pen*s. You don’t know. But I’m the wrong one to call ’cause you’re gonna get a rude awakening on the other end. Don’t call me about no mess, especially when I’m in a positive place.”
We certainly can’t blame K.Michelle for being annoyed after receiving Ashley’s call, but dang K, did you have to tweet ole’ girl’s cell phone number?
There’s no denying that K. Michelle is more crazy than a little bit. And she’s the first one to admit that in her new song, “He Gets Me.”
The premise of the song is that though she can be a little off center sometimes, this dude still understands and celebrates her.
I be acting all crazy. But he know that he my baby…
When I say go, I mean stay. But that’s ok cuz he know me that way
Insecure, be going through his phone
And he don’t even get mad when I’m wrong.
Yeah. It’s a bit of a mess but we won’t pretend that women aren’t out here living this life.
Musically, though it’s a bit of a softer sound for K. Michelle. It’s melodic and quite a nice little love song with minimal drama.
She released this “He Gets Me” track as a little treat as we wait for her Christmas album to drop.
Take a listen and tell us what you think about it below.
Yeah, it’s this chick again.
Almost as soon as it was announced that K. Michelle was joining the cast of “Love & Hip-Hop New York,” Erica Mena started talking ish. Though the two-season hot head would like everyone to think K. Michelle is scared of her, it seems Erica is the one who’s really intimidated — judging from how much she keeps the “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” veteran’s name in her mouth. In an interview with Djsdoingwork.com, Erica claimed that when it comes to K, “She has a lot to say about me, but she’s scared to shoot with me.”
This isn’t the first time Erica’s made this claim. Last month she made the exact same statement on Twitter, to with K. Michelle replied, “I don’t speak goat.” Now, Erica is getting a little bit tougher, even claiming she can end K. Michelle’s career. She added in her recent interview:
“She’s coming from out of nowhere. Now, all of a sudden she has some harsh opinions about me, and she doesn’t even know me…Right now, she’s just feelin’ her own s**t.
“In the Concrete Jungle, there’s definitely no Southern hospitality. Anyone who’s gotten in a fight with me doesn’t last. I’m starting to feel like I have these secret powers where I get to kill people off one by one.”
Excuse me while I go try to find the people Erica’s gotten kicked off of LHHNY.
Aside from that allegation, I’m wondering how exactly the woman who initially claimed LHH was ruining her image thinks starting stuff with K. Michelle is going to benefit her life right now. I’m not one to advocate violence, but I would not be surprised if we saw this child catch a beatdown before season’s end. But more importantly, what’s the root of this beef anyway??
Over the summer, we learned that Love & Hip Hop star K.Michelle was exclusively dating 23-year-old Indiana Pacers shooting guard, Lance Stephenson. Unfortunately, their romance was short lived. By October, we were reporting on the couple’s split. Though she didn’t originally offer an explanation for their breakup, the “V.S.O.P.” singer later revealed that Lance had been unfaithful. During a recent interview with Power 105.1′s Breakfast Club hosts, K further discussed their split.
“We’re god. I just took a step back, but we’re good. We’ve been like, communicating. I think it’s the age. Let us just be friends,” she said.
The reality star went on to discuss his alleged cheating ways.
“He wants to do what a 23-year-old do, but he still don’t want me to do—you know how that goes. So I’m just like, ‘Okay, we might as well be friends,”‘ she added.
Though K admits that it was best that the they go their separate ways, she says that he was definitely one of her better boyfriends.
“You know, I’ve had some awful ones. He actually had some really nice qualities within him other than his… You know, so we’re cool. We really are good.”
Infidelity wasn’t the only issue though, the “I Just Wanna” singer also blames their hectic schedules for putting a strain on things.
“That’s another thing. I don’t think he was jealous, I just know that we never have time. Like my tour starts Monday and I haven’t seen him since like September. The season started and I haven’t had anytime, so…”

At this point in the game, most Love & Hip Hop fans are aware that K. Michelle changes her hair just about as often as she changes her drawers, so I’m not 100% sure where Rashidah Ali is going with this, but the former redhead recently accused her new co-star of jacking her signature hair color.
“Well, I changed my hair color K.Michelle did come to New York and swagger jacked my whole entire hairstyle,” Rashidah told VH1 during the Love & Hip Hop season four premiere party.
She went on to say that the leader in her wouldn’t allow her to share a hair color with K.
“I’m a leader. I’m a person who likes to be separated from this rest. I don’t wanna be the other girl on the show with the red hair. So I intentionally changed my hair color just to be different.”
Rashidah adds that she will gladly allow K to rock the red tresses.
“She can have that. The red was last season. We’ve moved on to new and better things. So kudos to her. Rebellious Soul, right? There you go,” she sarcastically added.
We definitely sense some shade there, but maybe she was just joking? Though we could understand why some of the other ladies might resent K, as she made it quite clear that she’s not interested in shooting scenes with any of them.
