One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, just as one person’s favorite news story is another person’s most-dreaded, can-we-please-talk-about-something-else subject. Don’t get me wrong, as an entertainment journalist I enjoy my daily dose of celebrity gossip.
Please keep the Chris Brown-Rihanna saga and Kanye West temper tantrum stories coming. But when it comes to why the original Aunt Vivian left the cast of ”Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” over 20 years ago, or if Destiny’s Child is going to have yet another reunion, it’s like beating a dead horse.
While some stories are entertaining and add value to our lives, others have simply past the exit of relevance — #done #movingforward #letitgo #next. Take a look at seven news stories that are either overrated or over-reported below.
1. Nicki Minaj & Mariah Carey’s “American Idol” Feud
Now that season 12 of the singing-competion show is over, hopefully we won’t have to hear about the catty and unnecessary feud between Nicki and Mariah. To see two successful Black women fighting each week on a nationally-syndicated program made me cringe each and every time.

You can have your hair right and your outfit pressed. But if your feet are ashy and your toes crumpled you may as well go on back in the house. If you’ve ever been caught out having a bad foot day, you’re not alone. Check out our list of the the worst celebrity foot offenses.
Let’s all come clean for a second. No matter how much we moan, groan or complain, back in December when it was first announced that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are expecting a baby, we all knew it would be one of the most talked about pregnancies of 2013. We also knew that the attention-hungry pair would be doing the most. Although it feels like the couple made headlines every time either of them sneezed, there were some pretty cool, noteworthy moments throughout their pregnancy. For example, when it was revealed that they wouldn’t be accepting baby shower gifts and instead requested that their rich and famous friends make donations to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.
Reps on behalf of the hospital offered a public thank you to the couple for their admirable deed.
“Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for their thoughtfulness and support of the hospital.Funds donated on behalf of Kardashian and West will be directed to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Fund which will help care for the most critically ill babies and their families. We wish them all the best in the upcoming arrival of their baby.”
While Kim and Kanye may not be our favorite people in the world, we’ve still got to admit that it was pretty cool of them.
TMZ recently recovered an image of Kim’s over the top invite to the highly anticipated June 2nd shindig and we can’t say we’re the least bit surprised. The invite is an actual music box with a spinning ballerina inside. When the box is opened, details to the shower are found inside and a lullaby version of Kanye West’s “Hey Mama” begins to play.
Although some are probably gagging, it really does seem kind of sweet.
“They Will Split 30 Seconds After The Baby Is Born”: Wendy Williams Says Kim K And Kanye Won’t Make It Down The Aisle
Now you know Wendy Williams has never been one to bite her tongue when it comes to her opinion, so when she sat down with Andy Cohen on Bravo TV’s Watch What Happens Live! and was asked about “Kimye,” she didn’t hold back. The question was, what kind of mom did she think Kim Kardashian would be and did she think Kim and Kanye would make it? Here’s what she said in full, with the “Yeah, I said that ish” face on the whole time:
“She and Kanye will not make it, and what kind of mom will she be? A single mom.
(They will split) 30 seconds after the baby is born. I believe right now there is probably a plan in motion and Kris is probably helping Kim and Kim is probably asking for the help.
I think Kanye’s about sick of all of it and he might think he has invested too much into this family and he is not going to win. You are not going to pull a Kardashian away from Kardashians. They just don’t really understand what it is like to give up for other people.”

Rapper and actress Eve recently made headlines for her comments about wanting her future children with her Caucasian boyfriend Maximillion Cooper to be raised “colorblind,” which were met with some criticism from fans and critics online. “I don’t want them to see color. I never did,” said 34-year-old Philly native said in an interview with Vibe Vixen. “I grew up in the hood and my mother was very good at it not being a black thing, even though I grew up around all black people. I want them to want to know everything about all kinds of races.”
The emcee, whose new album Lip Lock is in stores now, clarified her “colorblind” statement in a video interview with theGrio, saying she’s surprised that the topic of interracial dating is even relevant to the public anymore.

Maybe he’s just going through pre-baby emotions. Or Kanye has lost his whole a** mind.
Okay, where to begin? First of all, Kanye and Kim Kardashian looked like they were coming out of a parking garage and on their way to a little eatery when the paparazzi showed up as they always do. We know that Ye has gotten more and more aggravated by the paps so when he saw them, he put his head down and kept walking.
While Kanye wasn’t looking, a “mysterious” car sign popped up out of “nowhere” and Yeezy ran right into it. Kim tried to console him but you can clearly tell he was annoyed. Don’t believe us just watch the video on TMZ.
We’re surprised he didn’t show his full child-like personality, but he just yelled at the paps to “stop taking f**king photos” and walked into the shop.
Ohh, but it doesn’t end there.
It seems as though after Kanye realized he really hit his head and that it was on tape, he came right back outside and went “ape s**t” on another photographer. As you can see in the video, again posted by TMZ, he snapped on a guy who was yelling that he’d just arrived:
Don’t taking a f***ing nother photo, man! Don’t take a f***ing photo! When will you muthaf***as stop?!”
Yeah, that’ll be NEVER, Yeezy. I mean, your girlfriend is the queen of getting some publicity and now you’re attacking the very people who played a huge part in giving her some shine.
We know the paps can be annoying and most of us aren’t famous but they’re only taking pictures. There are some thing you just have to get over and ignore!
Well, let’s hope that slam into the sign doesn’t leave a knot!
Just when we think Ray J can’t become any more disillusioned than he already is, Brandy’s little brother goes and one-ups himself.
I know everyone talks about Kim Kardashian on a nearly daily basis, but it seems no one keeps her name in their mouth more than the man who so proudly hit it first, Ray J Norwood. In an interview with the Jasmine Brand, the singer — term used loosely — talked a bit about his new gig as the host of Oxygen’s Bad Girls All-Star Battle, but inevitably the conversation turned to his relationship with Kim K. when he was asked about he and his old boo thang’s success with reality TV. He told the site:
We been there kinda from the start; like I think when reality first started people were a little bit afraid of it, but ya know now it’s the new wave, it’s the new TV, it’s pop culture. It’s everything in one as far as entertainment. It has its own space now and I think we saw it from the beginning and I think now it’s just evolved. It’s so big–everybody wants to do reality everybody wants to have a show about their life or their family and a lot of people think it’s easy but it’s not. I think people are really hand picking the right people to fit this space, and I just think we always kept it real always kept it 100 and we still here.
Where exactly is “here” Ray J? picking random women to date and sleep with on VH1? Say what you will about Kim, but her reality TV game is quite different, and I don’t think I’m going very far out on the limb when I say she’s the only one “still here.”
But Ray J also thinks he’s the sole reason Kim is famous and that he legitimately hit it first so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by this nonsense either. Oh wait, one more joke from Ray J. When asked what he thought of Kim’s odd Met Gala dress, he (straight up lied) and told The Jasmine Brand:
“I haven’t got a chance [to see the dress], I don’t be on the internet like that. I got to step my internet game up. I don’t know, I’m sure she looked good though.”
Oh you don’t be on the Internet like that? I want him to stop playing. Do you consider Ray J a reality TV pioneer?
It’s safe to say Kim Kardashian isn’t have one of her best weeks. After Kimmy Kouchgate blitzed the Internet with a string of unflattering memes and Robin Williams jokes (he said he looked better in his Mrs. Doubtfire dress) Kim is taking another fail for her Met Gala floral Givenchy gown.
And in the latest blip of bad press,Kim was photoshopped out of Vogue’s Special Edition Best Dressed slideshow. Kanye West is featured in his Givenchy ensemble gone right, clutching Kim’s gloved hand. Burn.

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.

If you were following the Metropolitan gala via twitter last night, you may have heard that rapper Kanye West performed and premiered some new music.
The annual star studded-event brings A-listers from all parts of the entertainment world, and while Kanye was with his very pregnant girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, no one was expecting Yeezy to surprise the audience.
