Serious Question: Why Do Some Women Act Like Being A Side Piece Is An Honorable Thing?

A most curious thing occurred on my drive home from work recently. As I was flipping through stations looking for some bearable music to listen to, I came across a segment on a radio show where people were calling in and giving a “shout-out” to their side pieces. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a side piece is someone you mess around with, but they’re not your significant other. You sleep with them, but you don’t necessarily involve yourself in their day-to-day life. However, the people calling in seemed proud of their other lovers.

“I wanna give a shout-out to Deandre on the East Side. I’ll see you later, baby.”

“This to my side chick Breanna. You the best!”

This radio segment really caught my attention – and turned my stomach.

Who were these people okay with being given a shout-out on the radio for being a side-piece? Has society’s morale really sunken that low? There was a time when being a mistress or a male lover on the side was not a good thing and was severely frowned upon; it was gossiped about in beauty parlors and laughed at in barbershops.

So this got me to thinking: When did being a side piece become an honorable thing?

With the explosion of Twitter and Instagram, everyone has become accustomed to seeing people do things that they normally wouldn’t do – like air out their private lives to the world. Through social media, Christina Milian has seemingly become the spokeswoman for side pieces. Her “situationship” with Lil Wayne has been mentioned in all the blogs, and not in a good way. Here’s a beautiful woman with a career and a child, yet she is happily defending a one-sided relationship to strangers online. If you’ll recall, all this mention (albeit coy at times) of Lil Wayne ended up sparking an Instagram war of words with Weezy’s most infamous and most proud side piece, Karrine Steffans.

Steffans took an indirect shot at the “Dip It Low” singer earlier this year, saying, “And most importantly, little girl, be careful not to claim a man who belongs to the world.”

Milian shot back: “It’s such a shame a woman has to settle for that mentality when no man has ever cared to claim that.”

Ironically, all of this bickering was going on while Lil Wayne hit up different events with his former fiancée, Dhea Sodano.

Even after reading up on this Instagram beef, I discovered Drake’s side piece anthem that he performed at the 2014 ESPY Awards. The melody plays out like a romantic love song, but he’s really joking about women settling for second best in the sports and entertainment world. As the lyrics put it: “This is dedicated to all of the side pieces. I know you’ll never be more. And you’ll always be less. But there’s comfort in knowing that you’re okay being second best.”

Say what now?

Look, if someone called into a radio station and gave me a shout-out for being a side piece, I would feel so low and disrespected. I can’t even begin to understand how some people think this is okay. It’s bad enough that you’re second best, but now it has to be called out? I don’t want to come across as “preachy,” but something is really wrong when you have well-known stars arguing about their side-piece status on social media.

I don’t see how you could ever win being a side piece. You’re on the outside of someone’s relationship looking in, hoping to become number one, but we all know the story rarely takes that turn. And while there are many reasons to self-evaluate if you find yourself in this type of “situationship,” there are none more greater than being shouted out, or really, put on blast, for happily settling for a second-place finish in someone’s life. Let’s do better.

Here’s What Lauren London and Lil Wayne’s Son Looks Like

Here's What Lauren London and Lil Wayne's Son Looks Like feat

We’ve known for some time that Lil Wayne and Lauren London have a son together. But that was all the information we had…up until this weekend.

Apparently Wayne and the son, Cameron were spending time together recently and he tweeted this picture.

Here's What Lauren London and Lil Wayne's Son Looks Like

Lauren London has been very clear about her desire to keep her son out of the public eye.  No pictures. And based on the fact that we haven’t seen him, it’s clear that Wayne had been following that directive.

Who knows what happened…maybe he wanted to show off his lil man or felt the picture was too cute to keep to himself. As cute as he is, I can understand wanting to share. He deleted the photo shortly after but not before people had a chance to get the screenshot.

So, how did Lauren London feel about her baby’s face all on the internet?

She took it in stride and tweeted this.

Yes! Adorable!

As long as she’s managed to keep him out of the public eye, we’re sure she knew the day was coming soon. We commend her for protecting her child but also can’t deny that we loved seeing his sweet, little face!

 

“We Like Those Intimate Moments To Be Our Own”: Christina Milian Explains Why Lil Wayne Barely Takes Pictures With Her

Even though Lil Wayne and Christina Milian haven’t stepped out in public and declared exactly what they are, we all know that the pair are some kind of item, despite the fact that the rapper still spends a lot of time with his ex, Dhea Sodano. And while Sodano and Wayne can often be seen hanging out together alongside the rapper’s daughter and friends, as well has with her friends and family, Milian and the rapper rarely are seen out and about as an open and happy couple (aside from being spotted leaving a few restaurants and performing together at the American Music Awards). Someone decided they wanted to ask Milian what the deal was, and she had no problem letting the fan know that some moments are for the people in the relationship–not the world.

Unfortunately, people are saying that they don’t take pictures together because she’s just one part of a group of women that Wayne entertains. But considering that Milian always seems pretty content about whatever their situationship is when she speaks to the media (“He’s my man crush everything. How about that? Is than answer”), then I guess that’s okay. You know these Lil Waynes and Diddys just have a way of persuading folks to be down with just about anything…

“I Might Give Y’all 3 New Kids From 4 Different Women” Lil Wayne Talks Drama With Cash Money And Future Plans

Lil Wayne Talks Drama With Cash Money And More

WENN

Lil Wayne is finally opening up about all the drama between himself and Cash Money Records, in a recent interview with Rollling Stone. 

You may remember late last year, Wayne tweeted that things weren’t peaches and cream with Cash Money Records and his longtime friend and father figure, Bryan “Baby/Birdman” Williams. In case you forgot, he tweeted:

“To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it.”

“This is not my fault. I am truly and deeply sorry to all my fans but most of all to myself and my family for putting us in this situation.”

“I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy.”

“I am a prisoner and so is my creativity Again, I am truly sorry and I don’t blame ya if ya fed up with waiting 4 me & this album. But thk u.”

Weeks later, he filed a $51 million lawsuit citing several financial misdeeds and alleging that Cash Money withheld pertinent accounting documents from him.

Naturally, Rolling Stone asked him about this and the affect it’s had on his relationship with Birdman.

Though he was a bit laconic, he revealed, perhaps unsurprisingly, that he and Birdman aren’t speaking.

“I have no words. I’m super-numb to it, to tell you the truth.”

Understandably, Wayne didn’t get into too many specifics about the lawsuit, telling Rolling Stone: “That’s a legal matter, homeboy.”

He did address that ‘prisoner’ tweet…sort of.

“I love being a prisoner in some pussy. That’s what I meant.”

In case you hadn’t gathered, Lil Wayne loves vagina, dearly.

After a few minutes of convo, he did admit that the whole situation has weighed heavily on him.

“I’m human. But it’s nothing that a good blunt can’t cure.”

And though Tha Carter V has been done and ready for release for ages, fans haven’t seen it because Cash Money won’t allow it. But in the meantime, he’s working on a mixtape, similar to the one Drake recently released, called The Free Weezy Album. Unlike Drake’s though, his is set to be free to the public.

While he’s spoken about it in the past, Wayne says he has no intention to retire from music any time soon.

“I’ve thought about it. But for a person like me that bleeds, eats, sleeps and shits music, it’s hard to do.”

As for relaxation?

“When I go home, I want my actual house to be a vacation. And I might give y’all three new kids from four different women. You know how I do it.”

“I Wouldn’t Do That To Him”: The-Dream Says He Had To Have A Chat With Lil Wayne About Dating Christina Milian

The-Dream

In a new chat with The Breakfast Club, The-Dream talked a lot about love: past love, his new love, Lalonne Martinez, and what he has learned after three marriages. The singer also spoke on Lil Wayne’s penchant for going after his exes, why his marriage to Christina Milian didn’t work, and whether or not he cheated on her (I know you all remember that infamous pic of him on the beach frolicking with another woman while they were still married…). Here is the piping hot tea from that interview:

What Makes His Third Marriage To Lalonne Martinez Different From The Last Two

You know I’m a hopeless romantic. I love being married. At least this time I don’t have the drama around it. It’s the non-drama. Because I don’t call you to see where you’re at. I don’t do that. It’s that stuff. It’s that uneasy thing, especially in this business. I need to be creative and do my thing, so I don’t have time for the nonsense.

But I’m always ready to settle down. I’m built a certain type of way.

How He Met His New Wife

We met maybe years ago. She would actually remind me that we met in crossing at the office of one of my friends. I had no idea. It was just this random thing. It wasn’t like she was seeking me out and I was seeking her out. It was just one of those things: I ended up free and she ended up free. And it was like, “Aye, you’re cool. I’ve had enough drama.”

After Three Proposals, When Does He Know He Wants To Pop The Question?

I don’t think it’s a particular time. I guess it’s a feeling that kind of comes over of you wanting to or seeing yourself with this particular person, the way that you are then, over the rest of your life. It’s just at that particular moment that you feel that way. Unfortunately, for a lot of people, especially today, when two people are growing, somebody can grow left and somebody can grow right. It’s hard to maintain that particular moment you were in, even if it’s for two months or four months. I try to tell people now about maintaining exactly who you are. If that’s not you, don’t go down the aisle. More so for women, don’t just say yes because your girls are looking at you, and you want to get married because your girl got married, and there’s a guy standing in front of you with a ring in his hand. You don’t have to feel like you have to say yes just because of the moment. You can say, “You know what? I’m not ready. I’m not ready for a lot of reasons. My family doesn’t want me to do it.” In our situation, with Christina, it had more to do with a family thing than it had to do with me and her. When you have that combed out section of just you and the other person, you’re good. But when you add like four other personalities into this, it turns into something else. If the other person can’t shield that off, and they let it in, then usually you have a problem. Most marriages end in that way. You’re marrying the family.

On That Infamous Pic Of Him Cheating On Christina Milian On A Beach

Is that really how it went? Ya’ll been looking at her show. Is that how it went down?

How He Knew Their Marriage Was Over

It’s when you don’t feel happy anymore. I mean, it’s not like you’re not trying to work through whatever it is. But it’s some things you can use logic and common sense to come to a conclusion. Cheating wasn’t the reason why…

If He Ever Talked To Lil Wayne About The Rapper Dating His Ex-Wives

We had ONE conversation. We don’t have conversations about having the same taste in women. And I didn’t ask why. I don’t ask anybody why they do anything. Everybody’s grown. Do whatever you want to do, but it is what it is. He put in a phone call to me, just being a gentleman. It’s my ex. It’s still your ex. I wouldn’t do that to him, but we have two different personalities.

 

Toya Talks New Book “How To Lose A Husband” On Wendy Williams

Ooo wee. If we thought Toya was going to take the high road during this separation between she and her husband Memphitz, we might have been mistaken. In promotion for Reginae’s episode of “Super Sweet Sixteen,” she stopped by the “Wendy Williams Show.” And since her personal life is really juicy these days, she also talked about her marriage and how she’s handling things.

And child, she kept her cool for most of it but there was some drama. Check out the highlights from the interview below.

Do you think the party was too extravagant?

Reginae is a great child and it’s her sixteenth birthday. Everybody do it big for their kids’ sixteenth birthday party…if they can. If you can go all out, go all out.

What do you think about Wayne and Christina Milian?

I don’t think about that.

Then Wendy got right into the state of her relationship with Memphitz.

Why are you separated?

My husband started to feel like he was living in my shadow. When I met him he was a big music executive. He discovered talent like T Pain, K Michelle, all different types of artists. And to go from begin a music executive to being known as Lil Wayne’s ex wife’s husband…it just started to take a toll on him.

What happened to his career?

He started mixing business with pleasure. He got into a relationship with his artist, K Michelle and it was a lot of allegations that he beat her and stuff like that. The person that you see right now, that’s a person who’s dealing with a lot of hurt and pain and that’s just how he’s choosing to deal with it.

Have her allegations affected your marriage?

I wouldn’t say she affected my marriage. This is how I feel about the whole situation, there’s three sides to every story: her side, his side and the truth. And to be honest with you, no one knows the truth only the people in that room. And you know, we’re all going off the information that we believe to be the truth. So we all are entitled to our own opinion.

How is he mentally right now?

You see he’s acting out on Instagram. How he chooses to deal with his stuff is how he chooses to. How I choose to deal with mine is different. I’m hurt too. I decided to write a book called “How To Lose A Husband.”

Would you like to reconcile?

I would love to work things out with my husband because here’s the thing Wendy, a lot of people get married and when things go wrong they give up on their marriage. You make a vow, it’s for better or for worse.

Did his appearing on Tiny and Toya affect his position at Sony?

Absolutely. I just feel like they didn’t accept him in a tv world. They were looking at him like, you’re more of a behind the scenes type of guy now you’re “mister tv man.” In that world, the tv industry, reality that is, is not really respected.

Memphitz asking Toya to join “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” 

Mona Scott Young asked Memphitz and I to join the show. And to me, that’s not something that I want to be a part of. And I didn’t feel that was the right thing to do for my marriage. We were newlyweds. To go on a show to go back and forth with your ex…I was like ‘No. You go on the show. I’m not going on the show.’

After Wendy and Toya had time to talk all of their grown women talk, she called Reginae out to chat about her recent birthday party, the drama between Birdman and Wayne and her future plans.

The best part was getting my car because I love driving. My security…he’s been teaching me how to drive since I was 14 years old.

I home-school now. This is my first year of homeschooling, so up to ninth grade.

Wayne and Birdman

With me, I love them both and that’s business. My loyalty belongs to my father, anything that he goes through. I love my father and I love my godfather. When my father was in jail, my godfather, he took care of me. So I love them both and I’m praying that they get through whatever they have…

Why Memphitz wasn’t in the show

Toya: He was at her Super Sweet Sixteen. They cut him out of the special, I guess because of what is going on. But he plays a very important role in her life.

Are you going to college or are you going into the industry?

I’m going to, of course, go to college still. But I am going to sing and rap. But right now, with the label goring through what they’re going through I’m on hold as well as my father.

Why did you leave the OMGirlz?

It was business . With the different labels and who to sign with…it was just a business thing.

We all saw the pictures of Reginae’s 16th birthday party and we all heard about the Ferrari and BMW she received from her parents. We saw the clips of Nicki Minaj’s performance and Reginae’s three outfit changes. It was extravagant.

But as with any lavish party, preparation is key. And thanks to the good people at MTV, we get to see all the work and the drama that went into preparing Reginae’s party during her “My Super Sweet 16″ special.

Here’s what MTV said in their official release:

Hip-Hop mogul Lil Wayne has a daughter, Reginae, and she is finally turning 16. As hip-hop royalty, the pressure is on to throw the most talked about party of the year. However, friendship drama threatens to turn Reginae’s party into a spectacle of another sort. Will Weezy’s daughter’s coming of age celebration end up being totally fabulous or totally fizzle?

Oh…As a fan of “My Super Sweet 16,” I’m here for it.

The show is set to air next Monday, February 16 at 7 PM but in the meantime, check out the trailer.

You Have No Power Here: Birdman Denied Entry To Nicki Minaj’s Pre-Grammy Party

Well if we didn’t know which side Nicki Minaj was on of the Birdman vs. Weezy battle, now we do.

According to TMZ, Birdman and his huge entourage were turned away from Nicki Minaj’s Pre-Grammy party in West Hollywood early Sunday morning. Apparently, Birdman and his crew showed up to the party at 1:45 am to be turned away with an explanation that the club was about to close.  It could be as simple as that, but you would think that Nicki would make a way for the CEO of Cash Money Records, the parent company of her mentor Lil’ Wayne’s label, Young Money. Maybe Birdman was just too tardy for the party, or maybe Nicki is making it known who she is siding with in the beef Birdman is currently experiencing with Lil’ Wayne who wants to cut all ties with him and is rumored to be suing him for the advance of the delayed Carter V album.

In other news, Grammy weekend is shaping up to be pretty crazy. TMZ also reports that someone was shot to death outside of Hollywood’s Supper Club where Snoop Dogg, Schoolboy Q and Wiz Khalifa were partying inside. The rappers had nothing to do with the shooting, but police report two men were involved in an altercation which resulted in one man being shot in the head and rushed to the hospital where he died. Cops have a suspect in custody and say it looks like the men may have been gang-affiliated.

We hope these Grammy festivities can turn down just a tad so these celebs can win some awards, party safely and go home.

“I Want Off This Label!” Lil Wayne Sues Cash Money For $51M

WENN

Lil Wayne is at his wits end! The Got Money rapper is suing his record label, Cash Money Records, for $51 million in damages, Billboard reports.

Cash Money Records, co-founded by Birdman, reportedly breached a contract with Weezy — the label promised an $8 million advance in December (when Wayne allegedly started working on the “oft-delayed” Tha Carta V album) and an additional $2 million when the album was completed.

And well — Weezy reportedly got nada.

The financial dispute between Wayne and Cash Money bubbled to surface when, in December of last year, Weezy released a few revealing tweets detailing his rift with the label, according to Rap Up:

“To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it.”

“This is not my fault. I am truly and deeply sorry to all my fans but most of all to myself and my family for putting us in this situation.”

“I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy.”

“I am a prisoner and so is my creativity Again, I am truly sorry and I don’t blame ya if ya fed up with waiting 4 me & this album. But thk u.”

The ironically-named Cash Money label has been the subject of bankruptcy rumors since last November. According to Design&Trend, Birdman’s record label has the IRS breathing down its neck, and if they can’t fix the mess, Cash Money may be forced to file for bankruptcy protection and liquidate their biggest assets, who happen to be Drake and Nicki Minaj

Unfortunately for Cash Money, with Lil Wayne threatening to walk away, Weezy says he’s also planning on taking Drake and Nicki Minaj with him, too, according to the Daily Mail.

“Cash Money has jeopardized the ability of the Young Money label [Wayne’s label] to properly and successfully conduct business and has improperly committed waste to the assets of the Young Money label,” the lawsuit stated, according to CourtHouseNews.

The Lollipop rapper isn’t the only one who has expressed his frustrations with his label lately. Back in October, Tyga — signed to Cash Money and Young Money — tweeted: “Gold album been done. My label holding me hostage so I can’t release nothing. Might just leak it for my fans then let them make $ off it.”

Lil Twist, a Young Money signee, tweeted:  “I swear I gotta have the worst management team in the history of management teams.. Like wow this [expletive] crazy.. All I wanna do is drop music.”

Just when you thought the peculiar situationship between Christina Milian and Lil Wayne couldn’t get any more awkward, they turn around and do this. Last night, the unlikely pair debuted their remix to Jay Z and Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love,” and it’s pretty graphic.

On the track, which has been included on the rapper’s newly released Sorry 4 the Wait 2 mixtape, Wayne and Christina get straight nasty with him rapping about her “p—y” being “warmer than a Northface” and her singing about riding his “skateboard.”

The song was released on the heels of the premiere of Christina’s new reality show, “Turned Up,” which seems to perfectly describe her lifestyle right now. We can only imagine what Nivea must be thinking right now.
