WEEKEND WRAP-UP! ‘King Bey’ Is Back! The Rock Smells An Oscar! + MORE!
Hey loves! I hope everyone has been enjoying the holiday weekend (especially if you have an extra day off) so far. It’ll be even better for me when I get an invite to a bbq that will have some slammin’ potato salad! Don’t everyone go commenting at one time! Anyhoo, some of your fave celebs have been having a GREAT weekend while others…not so much. Let’s see what grist they’ve given us for the mill this go ’round!
Beyonce Is Back!
If you’ve been keeping up then you know that Beyonce is back to work this weekend with four nights of shows at Revel Resort in Atlantic City, NJ. Last night was the second show and let me say that the fans have seemingly not been disappointed. From both Friday and Saturday night’s shows, fans have been tweeting this is “Bey’s best show EVER,” she sounds incredible and her body looks amazing! A few tidbits: she did tributes to both Whitney Houston and Donna summer, covered Lauryn Hill’s “X-Factor” and she showed a very quick video of her rocking Blue Ivy! Hopefully, the shows will come to dvd so we can all get a taste what others got to see up close and personal.
Sean Kingston’s Trail of Destruction
Well, a former landlord is going after Sean Kingston and his mother in court after they allegedly broke the lease and left a mansion they were renting in ruin amongst other things, according to TMZ. Back when Sean was recovering from his jet skiing accident, he decided that Miami was no longer the place for him because the sound of the ocean bothered him so he moved to Hollywood. But according to the landlord, he left broken landscaping lights, sprinkler heads, holes in the walls and a host of other things which resulted in almost $22,000 in damages. The rent on the mansion is $25,000 per month and because they left in October, they breached the contract and now owe $50,000 plus $2,450 in back rent which brings the total in which he says Sean and his mother owe to almost $72,000. If this is true, Sean you couldn’t clean up and get things fixed before you left? Figuring out the rent bill wasn’t an option? And you flee to Hollywood because the ocean bothers you? I thought they had water in Cali too.
“Men In Black 3” Taking The #1 Spot
Taking 10 years to reprise your roles as Jay and Kay haven’t stopped Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones from doing big numbers. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “threequel” is set to bring in $75 million in its opening weekend. It had been a long time since we’d seen the MIB guys and because movies and moviegoers tastes have changed so drastically, there was whispered talk that it might not do well in the box office. But in the illustrious words of Diddy…take that, take that.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Wants an Oscar
He left the wrestling world to tackle a new passion for acting and quite frankly, he’s had a decent amount of success making family films and lighthearted action flicks. But now, Dwayne Johnson has decided he’s ready to take home the gold. In an interview with Cinemacon, he revealed that he doesn’t know when but it will will happen but is sure it will come. “My production company can develop it and we’re developing small roles like that right now…I have faith that it’s gonna come somehow, someway. I’m gonna lock into that role and it’s gonna be unexpected.” Well good luck with that! Maybe he should slow down on making movies like Tooth Fairy so that Hollywood folks start taking him a little more seriously. Check out the rest on EURWeb.
Bobby Brown’s Other children Speak Out
By now we all know that Bobby B has a new album coming out and on May 28th, he’s actually scheduled to perform on “Today.” To go along with his Memorial Day concert two of Bobby’s older children, LaPrincia and Landon spoke about growing up around their dad and the drug use. LaPrincia said she never witnessed any type of drug abuse in her life by her father. Landon said that although there was apparently a lot of things being mentioned in the media, he was oblivious to all of it. Hopefully, Bobby can stay on “the good foot” and make good music again if that’s what he wants to do. Check out the full clip here.
Flavor Flav facing jail time
The New York Daily News is reporting that Flavor Flav is facing six months jail time for failure to pay $111,000 in back child support to Angie Parker, the mother of three of his seven children in Albany, NY. A magistrate recommended the jail time along with revocation of his driver’s license, calling his failure to appear in court a “willful violation.” He must appear in Albany Family Court in June or will likely face a warrant for his arrest. This isn’t the first time Parker has taken him to court; in 2010 she took him to court because at the time he owed over $63,000 in back support. How unfortunate. He had a fairly successful reality show run, has a restaurant in Vegas and is engaged to a woman and helping to raise her son but can’t take care of his own family? What a joke.
Listening to new music from JoiStarr was actually a re-introduction for me. About a year or so ago, her mixtape “Broccoli & Noodles” was introduced to me on Twitter. I figured that based on the name of the mixtape it would be quite corny and I wouldn’t like it. I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. JoiStarr had good beats, decent lyrics and the songs were catchy. Fast forward to last week, I was watching “Mary Mary” and Erica’s husband Warryn said JoiStarr was his sister and artist…surprise, surprise! Joi sounds a lot like Mary Mary and has sung background for them as well as Kanye West and others. She’s got quite a few mixtapes and singles under her belt already and her album, Magic, is scheduled to be released this summer. Check her out at joistarr.com.
