Back in 2009 former child star Amanda Bynes and rapper Kid Cudi aka Scott Mescudi had some sort of relationship. Thanks to her sexually-charged tweets, we learned way more about the duo’s sex lives than most of us would’ve cared to learn.
“It’s amazing how good it feels when someone knows how to love your body! I am having withdrawals from a certain guy lol ,” the troubled actress tweeted back when their fling was hot and heavy in February of 2010.
“So turns out i prefer chocolate over vanilla. interesting.” she added.
Talk of the unlikely pair’s relationship even made it to Cudi’s 2010 “Cudderisback” track.
“Wanna know about me and Amanda Bynes (Amanda please)Wanna know really, really, really, who I’m dating. Is she civilian or super duper famous? Is she African-American, Caucasian or Asian or maybe Spanish? It don’t matter my n—a, I love them all. As long as she don’t need stupid amounts of makeup to make up the self esteem,” the 29-year-old M.C. recites at one point in his song.
Unfortunately, their love affair doesn’t appear to have turned out so well. In a recent rant that was initially directed towards Complex Magazine, Bynes begins trashing Kid Cudi on Twitter, questioning his talent and calling him “ugly.”
Sheesh! Cudi has yet to publicly respond to his ex-boo’s verbal assassination.
Somebody come get your friend.
In Friday foolery news, just because we had to share, former Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes is back to talking crazy on her Twitter. But after basically calling Jay-Z ugly, she wants another rapper to know that he could get it. And murder it…Sorry Drake.
Bynes took to her Twitter page last night to let out one of her gems of randomness, as Twitter has allowed her to fully express herself (but not in a good way…), and Tweeted the rapper to let him know that she would like to get to know him on a more sexual level.
And it seems she was dead serious. The actress, who has been making herself over with cheek piercings, wigs and a whole lot of makeup (she recently looked suspiciously close to Tyga’s girlfriend Blac Chyna), has publicly stated on her Twitter that she thought Drake was a “hot fellow,” but how she went from saying he was attractive to high-key propositioning him, we’re not so sure. Also, this isn’t the first rapper Bynes has been with or wanted to be romantic with. Years ago she was getting really close with G.O.O.D. Music rapper and actor (and cutie) Kid Cudi. Allegedly, her penchant for being too open on Twitter made them fall out, especially when some postings like the following were supposed to be about him:
“It’s amazing how good it feels when someone knows how to love your body! I am having withdrawals from a certain guy lol
“So turns out i prefer chocolate over vanilla. interesting.”
“The guy I love is the most talented person ever!” He inspires me to be better! *heart* awww we should get married.”
Yeah, she’s been doing the most for a while now, but her statement to Drake was a whooooole lot. Murder? Really? Maybe she thought because he loves to “date” Hollywood beauties, strippers and video vixens, he might be down, and who is to say that he would turn the girl down? But I’d suggest Drizzy run in the opposite direction. I could go on, but I’ll let you add your two cents on the ratchet-ness of all of this below…
There’s a trend brewing in the world of urban music. More and more artists are complaining when their products don’t sell — albums or any of their side projects.
Pharrell Williams has filed breach of contract papers at Manhattan Federal Court and is seeking $5 million in damages against the company he partnered with on his liquor line, Qream, over slow sales. It was not long ago that Pharrell debuted the cream liqueur. But now he’s unhappy with the sales, according to Allhiphop.com, and the music producer has filed a lawsuit against the distillery Diageo North America claiming that the company “failed to produce, market and distribute his high-end Qream to the appropriate target audience.” This, he claims, resulted in low sales.
Pharrell also wasn’t pleased with the product itself. He claimed the bottles had faulty tops. Lastly, he accused the company of shutting down production without warning last July and Williams did not have time to find another partner.
And not too long ago, Kid Cudi publicly called out his record label for not shipping enough physical copies of his long-awaited rock album “WZRD.” He used his Twitter feed to voice a complaint about Universal Republic, blasting the label for only shipping 55,000 copies and not securing radio play for the LP’s lead single “Teleport 2 Me, Jamie.”
Because of this, reports Hip Hop DX, CuDi threatened to suspend the release of the third installment of his critically acclaimed Man On the Moon series until 2014. Despite, the complaints WZRD debuted at number one today on iTunes.
Finally (because three’s a trend), Nicki Minaj complained during a radio interview that Target and Walmart had failed to support the release of her album “The Re-Up” back in November. The album was a repackaged version of “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” with a few new tracks and a DVD that the retailers had no interest in carrying.
Surely, we won’t have to wait too long before the next celeb airs their personal set of grievances.
Kid Cudi let off some steam on Twitter Tuesday night, slamming his record label for not getting his work on the radio. The rapper, born Scott Mescudi, noticed that two of his songs, “King Wizard” and “Just What I Am,” had roughly the same amount of video views as Trinidad James’ “All Gold Everything.” The James track is a radio standard, while Cudi’s songs apparently aren’t in rotation all that often.
The tweets — which include some colorful language — are available below. Cudi’s comparison is perhaps only semi-valid. James was an unknown artist before “All Gold Everything” lit up blogs and subsequently the radio, so it’s more notable that he was able to drum up the same number of video views as a relatively well-known act like Cudi. Also, the James single is perfect for the radio: lyrically and sonically unchallenging with a hook that’s much more jingle than poem.

Earlier this week, it was reported by multiple news outlets that rapper Kid Cudi, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, voluntarily gave up custody of his daughter Vada after being involved in a very bitter and exhausting year-long custody battle with her mother. The report which originally came from TMZ implied that the rapper “gave up” custody of his daughter as a result of a “history of violence and drug addiction.”
The Grio is reporting that Mescudi’s attorney Lauren Blair is now coming out stating the claims are false and insisting that Scott and the child’s mother reached an “amicable agreement” back in August of this year and that the agreement is reflective of the fact that ”both parents are fit and proper persons to have custody of their child.” While Blair says that the terms of that agreement will remain private, she did release a formal statement regarding the controversy. Check out some of the statement below.
“There has been several reports that “Kid Cudi gives up full custody of daughter” which several gossip sites re-ran under the headline “Kid Cudi Gives Up Full Custody of His Daughter Due to ‘History of Violence and Drug Addiction.’” The statement that Kid Cudi gave up full custody due to a history of violence and drug addiction is simply false. The truth is that in August 2012, Kid Cudi and his daughter’s mother jointly reached an amicable agreement on the issues of legal custody and parenting time. While Kid Cudi’s lawyer, Lauren Blair of the Chicago-based law firm, Pedersen & Houpt, will not comment on the details of the parties’ custody and parenting agreement, which are private, she did state that the final custody judgment in Kid Cudi’s case expressly acknowledges that “both parents are fit and proper persons to have custody of their child.”
Ms. Blair also made clear that allegations of a purported history of drug and alcohol use and violent behavior that were made in the early stages of the case were based on “stale” information from internet videos, interviews and other “unreliable hearsay sources” about alleged isolated incidents with unrelated persons as far back as December 2009, June 2010 and July 2010. In fact, Kid Cudi voluntarily agreed to take a drug test to dispute those allegations and to dispel any notion that he was unfit to parent based on allegations of illegal drug use, and the test results came back negative for drugs.
Kid Cudi was also never proven to be an “absentee dad” or a deadbeat dad who didn’t want to be involved in his child’s life or tried to shirk his parental obligations. The court formally acknowledged that Kid Cudi had, since his daughter’s birth, “attempted to establish a relationship with the child and visit with the child when not on tour, or when he is in Chicago or in the state of Ohio where both parties are originally from.” The court also recognized that Kid Cudi had voluntary provided financial support, including child support, rent and other monthly payments, for his daughter since her birth until the time that a child support order was entered as part of the normal course of the case.
“Both parties, as well as the judge and the parties’ lawyers, worked very hard over many months to reach an amicable resolution because everyone saw that it was in the child’s best interest to do so and saw two parents who both deeply love and care about their child.”
We’re happy that the two parents were able to reach an agreement for the sake of their child — and that he’s not a violent drug addict.

Being a New Yorker I am used to living in a city where everyone is mixed with everything. If you walk the streets and ask somebody what their ethnicity is be ready for a response like ,” Well on my dad’s side I’m ….”. It’s always interesting to me to see what people say when you ask them what their ethnicity is. When it comes to celebrities we we can’t help but want to know every little detail about them. Here are some celebrities that you didn’t know were Latino. Some of these may surprise you. Despite their African- American looks, these celebrities are proud to be of Latino heritage.
When you think of Jim Jones you think of Dip Set, Harlem, Chrissy but you would never guess that he is Latino. He is actually Puerto Rican and Aruban. If that doesn’t sell you, his middle name is Guillermo. Even though he is Latino, his Spanish isn’t too good, so don’t expect him to appear on any reggaeton tracks anytime soon.
The men on this list fly in private planes, throw parties at the Hamptons, and have millions, literally millions, in the bank. While your man might not have all that (pat yourself on the back if he does!), doesn’t mean he can’t dress like these G.Q. brothas. They are the best dressed black male celebrities in Hollywood–well, according to moi. After a few glances over their stylish photographs, I’m sure you’ll agree. If not, let us know who you’d like to add to the list, or unapologetically delete.
