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.
Second Nanny Comes Forward Calling Kim Porter Out As A Nightmare Employer, Reportedly Suing Diddy For Six Figures
A little less than a month ago we told you that a woman who claimed to be the former nanny of Kim Porter, Sean “P.Diddy” Combs’ children’s mother, filed a lawsuit against Kim. According to the woman’s suit, Kim verbally and violently abused her. She also expressed that Kim frequently indulged in narcotics and other drugs around her twin daughters. Now, a second nanny has come forward claiming that Kim treated her horribly during her stint of employment as the Combs children’s nanny.
According to TMZ, nanny number two is a woman by the name of Amanda Jansen and she filed her suit against Diddy’s company Bad Boy Entertainment since she claims that’s where her checks were coming from. Sources say that Jansen is suing the entertainment company for six figures, as she claims she was simply hired to look after Kim’s children but her job quickly turned into a full-service housekeeping position. The disgruntled ex-employee says that in addition to caring for the children, she was also required to sometimes work over 100 hours per week without ever being given a proper break.
Jansen also says Kim never gave her a room with a working lock and that she was forced to live out of a suitcase because the only furniture her bedroom contained was a bed and a computer desk. In the suit, Jansen complains that when she tried to speak to Kim about her crazy schedule, she was fired.
We hear that the woman is suing for overtime compensation that she allegedly never received and wrongful termination in addition to a few other grievances.
Now that a second woman has come forward, what are your thoughts on the allegations being made against Kim?
Kim Porter Scandal Unfolds: Sources Say Disgruntled Nanny Is A Deceitful Criminal With A Record To Prove It
Yesterday we reported that a woman by the name of Dawn Drago was suing actress and mother of three of entrepreneur P.Diddy’s children, Kim Porter. Drago’s suit, which was filed by attorney Patrick Reider, accuses Kim of violently and verbally abusing her during her period of employment as Porter’s nanny. Drago also claims that Porter is an avid drug user who is not above getting high in front of her twin daughters. The lawsuit implies that Porter’s drug of choice is marijuana and goes on to suggest that she also indulges in coc*ine and pill-popping.
Since the explosive claims made headlines yesterday, a source close to Kim has reached out to TMZ, stating that the former nanny is a liar and that she’s bitter because Kim fired her. The source went on to say that Drago is a convicted shoplifter, which is something that she failed to mention on her employment application. The insider also revealed that Kim is not allowing the claims to move her and that the allegations made about her being a drug abuser are completely false. Since Diddy has taken no action (at least not that we see) against Kim in an effort to remove the twins from her home, some are taking that as proof that he does not believe the allegations either.
In response to the source’s shoplifting revelation, the firm representing Drago released a statement to TMZ, saying that her prior conviction is irrelevant” because she was not working at a shop.”
Yeah, allow that to settle for a moment.
Should a plaintiff’s prior convictions be considered in civil lawsuits?
Diddy may be a lot of things, but from appearances, it seems that one of those things is a devoted father. On Friday, he posted this picture of he and his 6 year old twin daughters, D’Lila and Jessie Combs on their way to a father-daughter dance. Being that these two are Diddy’s first girls, before Chance was born a year later, this was his first time going to this type of event.
This is the caption he wrote when he posted the photo:
On way to my 1st father daughter dance!!!!! I’m so EXCiTED!!!!!!!!
Too cute! Hopefully, Chance will have a father-daughter dance of her own to go to next year.
And never one to forget about his boys, last Wednesday Diddy also posted this pic of his son, Christian’s Algebra test.
My most important Instagram pic of the week!!!!..my son @c3so_fly got an A on his math test. I’m proud of you boy keep up the good work!!
You know Sean “Diddy”‘ Combs always has something up his tailored sleeve. When he first got into the entertainment game he has became known as the unique marketing — literally taking it to the streets when promoting the late Notorious B.I.G. and his own record label Bad Boy. Soon it became the norm to see a crowd carrying Bad Boy picket signs at all the major music industry events.
So now in this high-tech age, Diddy has turned to social media to promote his Sean John jean fashions. The hip-hop mogul recently held the first ever Instagram Fashion Show during New York’s fashion week.
“In honor of New York Fashion Week we wanted to do something that has never been done before”, said Combs in a press release (via The Huffington Post). “With Instagram technology we are bringing Sean John to the social media runway where our consumer lives.” Combs (aka @iamdiddy) posted his Fall 2013 collection in order to reach people via their smartphones. Every 30 minutes on Friday from 10 am to 5pm, he posted the images.
We’ve got a few of the images after the jump, ICYMI. Any favorites?
As an artist, finding a producer who can bring out the best in your voice and arrange hit records is hard. And for those lucky few who do, staying together can be even harder. For the artists on this list, we loved the music they made with their producers, but just like divorces in real life—some we hated to see separate, while others were clearly for the best.
Brandy and Rodney Jerkins
Although Rodney Jerkins didn’t begin working with Brandy until her second album “Never Say Never,” the musical match helped boost her into super-stardom. Together they made a unique sound and we all loved it. With hits like “The Boy is Mine,” “What About Us?” and “Almost Doesn’t Count,” the duo was on a roll. So, we were all surprised when the two went their separate ways after the success of the “Full Moon” album.
On Brandy’s fourth studio album, “Aphrodisiac,” Jerkins did not produce one song; instead she turned to producer Timberland to create the majority of the CD. The album had little success, and she returned to Jerkins and the Darkchild crew to produce her fifth studio album “Human,” but it was too late, the musical magic was long gone between the two. The reason they parted ways in the first place is still a bit unclear, but tension remains high between the two judging by the brief run of Brandy’s family reality show when they had dinner together.
You’ve already seen some of today’s most popular R&B artists and rappers when they were just tiny tots, but here are 15 high school pictures that are bound to bring back even more memories. Can you guess these faces?
We know some of today’s most famous celebs by who they are now and who they’ve become in the last few years. But, let’s take a trip down memory lane with some pictures of some of the most famous black male celebs. Here are 15 photos that are sure to make you saw “aww.”
The MTV VMAs air tonight to celebrate the music videos they hardly ever play and hopefully bring about some yearly controversy. The show promises to be an over the top spectacle just as in years past, with alleged drama to come as MTV has practically been trying to get Chris Brown, Rihanna and Drake to sit next to each other. Never a dull moment with these awards, eh? If you don’t believe me, here are a few water cooler moments that left an impression (good or bad, that’s up to you) on the audience and those at home.
Michael Jackson at the ’95 MTV VMAs
In 1995, the King of Pop opened the show. With backing from Slash, he performed for more than 10-minutes, and pumped out a medley of his greatest hits such as “Billie Jean,” “Dangerous,” “Beat It,” “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough” and “Black or White.” Once again, he showed why there was everyone else and why there was just one Michael Jackson by putting on a mini concert. His night continued with wins in Best Dance Video, Best Art Direction and Best Choreography for “Scream,” his duet with sister, Janet.

Howard University has groomed some of the best female talent in acting, literature and for the world stage, and the school has also had the same success when it comes to their male students. These 10 prominent men have studied in the school’s classrooms (and cut a rug at the Homecoming festivities…) and have gone on to do amazing things.
Sean “P. Diddy” Combs
Diddy has called himself many names over the years, but each version of himself has always been proud to hype up the time he spent at the famed HBCU. He was majoring in Business when he dropped out in 1989, but has given back to the school in various ways. He was part of the Howard Homecoming in 1995 alongside the Notorious B.I.G., he keeps close ties with current students and even offered support as students protested over housing and financial aid packages in 2009.
