Trey Songz told us a couple of weeks ago that all is well with he and fellow singer August Alsina. But it appears that there may still be a bit of frustration there. According to DJ TMillz, the “Na Na” singer recently flipped out and threw a female fans phone after she asked for a photo with him and then said, “Thanks, even though you’re not August Alsina.” T gave an account of the alleged incident through a series of tweets.

Trey’s reps have yet to speak on the alleged incident, but TMillz insists that it actually happened.
I would never fabricate no story about a celeb.. Like wtf

While that was an extremely rude thing for a fan to say, we hope that Trey wouldn’t allow a stranger to get the best of him like that.

There’s competitiveness in any field that you work in, but it’s always nice to see some camaraderie, support, and just have someone that you’re working with lend a helping hand… or a face.
In this list (which was inspired by a comment from poster Dark Child) we’re going to be bringing you musicians who appeared in other musicians’ music videos. Now, here’s the stipulation for their selections:
They have to either play the role of a love interest, they didn’t have a vocal part in the song, and/or they are merely there as a form of solidarity for their friend. So, with that said, let’s get it going with:
It seems like it was just yesterday that Trey Songz was talking about he just had to make it. Now the 29-year-old is boasting six albums under his belt with his latest release, “Trigga,” having hit shelves this past Tuesday. Not one to take days off, the R&B singer went from the BET Award stage last Sunday straight to the Essence Festival stage Thursday night where we caught up with the often-shirtless wonder to hear him talk about his longevity in the business and how he’s transformed over the course of his nine-year career. Check out what he had to say in the video up top.
‘I Aint Really Tripping Off Sex:’ Trey Songz Speaks Honestly About Why Dating Is Complicated For Him
It’s been nearly a decade since Trey Songz emerged on the scene with “I Gotta Make It.” 9+ years later and on the heels of his sixth album release, Trey confidently boasts that he did things his way this time around. Fans can be assured that “Trigga” is the Virginia native’s “most honest” album to date. We were recently able to catch up with the beloved R&B crooner with the million dollar smile for an extremely honest and straightforward interview, where he dished on dating obstacles, love, his desire to start a family and reconciling with August Alsina following their highly publicized falling-out.
MN: You had an amazing performance at the BET Awards last night. We were happy to see you and August Alsina reunite on stage. How did that reunion come about considering that highly publicized falling out you two had?
Trey: You know, with the publicizing of August’s emotions a few months ago, I never wanted to respond to that in a negative light. One thing that I’ve realized over the last couple of years, you know stepping into the game is that we gotta work together. We gotta uplift one another. We can’t bring each other down. I understood August’s frustration. As a young artist doing a million interviews and people only asking you about this other n*gga, you know? After 40 interviews, you gonna pop off at some point. He ain’t mean all of that stuff he said. We had conversations about it. So when it came time to think about how we could put together an incredible performance, it was nothing. Aside from me and August at BET, it was Chris there. It was Usher. It was the Lionel Richie tribute. Missy came out. It was so many different generations of music and R&B in the building. It just felt right.
MN: In the past, you expressed a desire to be seen as a multidimensional individual as well as for your talent, as opposed to just a sex symbol or a “piece of meat” as you put it. Does being viewed in that light make dating more complicated for you?
Trey: It does a little bit. First of all, sometimes I just wanna kick it. I wanna chill out. If I’m dealing with somebody, they wanna have sex talking about how I do this, that and the other. They’re like, ‘It’s a cut right here. What’s up?’ That’s kind of crazy. Because I am so sexually viewed, when I’m actually interested in somebody, that’s the last thing on my mind. When I feel somebody for the person that they are, I love their conversation and I love being around them and I ain’t really tripping off of sex. Sex is something that for me, when you’re viewed as a sex symbol or however you want to put it, you know it’s an object. It’s whatever. It doesn’t hold as much value—to me. When I fall in love and making love, I’m all down for that. It does get a little tricky because you don’t know what people’s motives are. But it’s cool because I put myself in that position.
MN: It was very thoughtful of you to send all of those flowers to Nicki Minaj. You sort of flooded out her studio with them. If that’s how you’re handling a business relationship, I can only imagine what you’d do for someone who you’re in love with. Would you consider yourself to be the romantic type?
Trey: Oh, most definitely. When I’m in love with somebody, you’re going to feel it. You’re going to know it. Nicki has really taken control of her destiny and she has for so long. She’s at the point where she’s the hottest she’s ever been and for us to do a record right now, it’s amazing. Outside of that, it’s her. It’s her brand as a woman. What she got going on is dope to sit back and look at. She’s literally in this predominately male-based business and she’s running sh*t. That should be applauded.
MN: Is there someone special in your life right now?
Trey: I got somebody that I care about, but we’re not at that place. We ain’t even dealing with each other like that. For me, I’m focused on becoming a legend and making sure musically, I handle mine. Outside of that, I’m not looking for love, but I do want it one day. I want somebody to fall in love with, have kids with, all of that. But I don’t wanna rush that. I don’t wanna get to a place where I rush it and that’s not it. I want to be able to have kids and watch them grow up and see them say their first words.
The Queens District Attorney has decided not to prosecute Trey Songz for a 2012 nightclub incident involving the recording artist, The Jasmine Brand reports. In case you need a reminder, back in 2012, a woman by the name of Donna Enoe alleged that the “Na Na” singer had assault her by tossing a wad of cash in her face. According to Donna, the dollar bills caused damage to her left eye.
Although the criminal investigation was dropped, the alleged victim went on to file a civil suit against the singer. In her complaint, she alleged that the incident caused a contusion, a scratched cornea, a black eye, blurred vision, mental distress and severe physical and mental anguish. As a result, she requested money for future medical bills and the loss of the ability to continue her normal life.
Trey, however, struck back at his accuser by claiming that he was actually the victim and that Donna was the one who had to be restrained by security due to her outrageous behavior that night. He says that she did not have permission to be in the VIP section and that she intentionally preyed on him for financial gain.
Earlier this spring, the two appeared in court for a pre-trial settlement meeting. The civil case was dismissed the same day of the meeting, so we’re assuming they decided to settle and went their separate ways. We’re pretty sure Trey is happy to put all of this behind him after nearly two years of legal proceedings.
What’s better than a musical powerhouse taking the stage before thousands of screaming fans? Two musical powerhouses taking the stage before thousands of screaming fans. It is all too rare an occurrence that singers join forces for an epic concert experience for the fans that adore them. But the union of Mr. and Mrs. Carter “On the Run” together has given us renewed hope that there are years of superstar-duo tours in our future. Here are the musical duets we would love to see.
“I Just Told Y’all Not To Ask Me That Sh*t”: August Alsina Curses At 106 & Park Host, Rocsi Diaz Comes To Her Defense
On 106 & Park last night, singer August Alsina (whom we just had an interesting interview with) was the guest, promoting his new album, Testimony. While doing so, he was asked about his issues with Trey Songz, something we also asked him, but I guess at that point he was sick and tired of talking about it. Alsina claimed that he told the hosts at 106 & Park not to ask him about his issues with Trey before the interview, but when co-host Keshia Chante did anyway, he calmly cursed at her:
Chante: “Is there any chance that two talented brothers will bury the hatchet?”
Alsina: “So you just go against the grain, and go against everything that I just…I just told y’all not to ask me that s**t when I got up in here.”
Things got tense after that.
Chante: “Fair enough. I think the girls wanna know. And you’ve spoken to–
Alsina: “Testimony coming out, baby. Album in stores.”
Chante: “You’ve spoken on radio stations and blogs and you’re on the show and fans want to know. So I’m just asking you what fans want to know. That’s it. If you don’t want to answer that’s fine.”
Alsina: “I won’t.”
Chante: “All right, we move on.”
After that, Chante was quite peeved by being cursed at on live television, as anyone would be. So by the time he introduced his new video a minute or two later, she walked off the stage.
So who was in the wrong in this situation? The feedback has been mixed. But former 106 & Park co-host Rocsi Diaz, who now works for Entertainment Tonight, has spoken out, defending Chante and saying Alsina’s behavior was unnecessary on Twitter. Forgive the grammar issues, Twitter does only provide you with 140 characters…
“Let me go on record and say Keshia Chante did her job as a journalist. Any other Radio or TV personality or blogger would have asked to.”
“2 even applaud how she was responded 2 is what’s wrong with our generation 2day. Also that language on @106andpark its not even necessary”
“She Be applauded for asking the hard question not being shut down”
And when someone tried to say that she used to get cursed out by celebrities on the show too, Rosci shut that down, saying:
“SWEET HEART NEVER ON MY WATCH AND @TerrenceJ wouldn’t let it happen”
What’s your excuse Bow Wow? Just kidding…but not really.
I think Alsina has every right not to answer questions he’s not comfortable with (more celebrities need to do it actually), but to curse at the young woman? Not a good look in my opinion, especially as a new artist, and especially when you consider the fact that Alsina was the one who brought his issues with Trey Songz to light in the media. Once you bring it up, people are going to want to talk about it. In response, just say, “no comment,” and better yet, have your publicist send a memo in advance so things like this don’t happen. I agree that this new generation of young people can be too comfortable talking to people any kind of way these days, and it’s quite ridiculous, especially when you’re talking crazy on live television.
But what do you think? Check out the awkward clip below and share your thoughts.
Last night, if you were on Twitter pretty late, you might have noticed that Trey Songz was trending. And if you clicked on the trending topic, you would have quickly learned that the internets were claiming, with questionable evidence, that Trey Songz was indeed gay. And there was a tweet from his “verified account” to prove it.
Here it is:
Then there was this older, suspect picture of Trey supposedly kissing a man.
Though I knew this was probably a fake, it looked pretty convincing. But I highly doubt Trey Songz would use Twitter as a way to come out if he really were gay.
Anyway, the topic trended for hours with a slew of different reactions. Some said they suspected long ago that Trey was homosexual. Others offered support claiming that whether he was gay or not they didn’t care and would still bump his music. And then there were those who shed fake emoji tears at the devastation.
Finally, this morning, during working hours, Trey addressed the slander:
The things you people craft up with hatred in your hearts. The things people believe without question, or validity, all baffles me.

Photoshop and a retweet is all people need to believe, any and everything. I feel bad for the impressionable, no minds of their own.

When you’re an R&B singer in the limelight, often times the gay rumors will follow. There are those who swear, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Trey Songz is gay. But if he says he’s not, then we’ll have to accept that. It’s not hard to photoshop some text on a Twitter profile. And that picture, upon further reflection, is not even Trey in the first place. Personally, I don’t know why people are so pressed either way.
Valentine’s Day is here and that means boxes of chocolate, teddy bears, dates and lovemaking. But it takes more than a special day for lovers to set that mood. And that’s when your favorite love songs and baby-making music come into play. And MadameNoire has the list of smooth R&B crooners, and their best slow jams and ballads ladies (and gents too) love to listen to while getting it on. Some of these male vocalists have the looks and some honestly just have the voices, but either way, women love them.
While some big Hollywood names dominated the box office this year, the films that were based on real life people or inspired by true stories were the ones that really outshined the rest.
13. Monsters University
Pixar struck gold with its 2001 Monsters Inc movie, grossing over half a billion dollars worldwide. Twelve years later the prequel Monsters University did even better than the original. The animated movie tells the story of two pals, Mike and Sulle, during their time at college and how they went from being friends to enemies. The film made over $80 million opening weekend and eventually raked in over $700 million worldwide.
