Serena Gets Nekkid For ESPN+HIP HOP NEWS: Jim Jones, Beyonce On Kanye, Jay-Z, & XXL's Def Jam Cover
Common's girl Serena Williams is showing alllll her ass-ets on the new cover of ESPN magazine. I mean...really. Can anybody be mad at her for it?
Jim Jones was spotted leaving the Manhattan courthouse yesterday. He had just admitted to punching a friend of Ne-Yo's (Jayvon Smith) the face in a Louis Vuitton store during a scuffle that erupted back in December. Jimmy pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in his Dec. 22 dustup with Javon at the LV store on 5th Ave. Jimmy was all smiles though because he was sentenced to time served the few hours he was in custody after turning himself in to police in January. That slap on the wrist was a rough sentence...
Beyonce finally spoke out about the Kanye/VMAs incident. After receiving her Billboard Woman of the Year 2009 Award a few days ago, Gayle King interviewed her in front of the audience where she gave her take on what happened that night:
Well, I knew his intentions, and I knew he was standing up for art; and he told me before, when they said the nominees, he's like, 'You have this award,'" Beyoncé told O: The Oprah Magazine editor Gayle King after accepting her award. "And when they didn't call my name he was, like, completely shocked. And when he walked on the stage, I was like, 'No, no, no!' and then he spoke, and I was like, 'Oh, no, no, no!' "But in the end, it ended up being a great night, and Taylor Swift did get her moment — and I didn't have to make an acceptance speech."
Here's video of B accepting her Award and her sit down with Gayle. More with Jay-Z and Def Jam's hip hop heads when you read the rest...
Jay-Z was crowned the Hottest MC In The Game by MTV recently during their controversial 10 Hottest MCs countdown week. And NY Governor Paterson even got in on the congrats to the newly crowned King of rap (Jay jacked the crown from Kanye): “Jay-Z is not only an outstanding hip-hop artist, but a dedicated philanthropist as well,” Paterson said in a statement. “Having just attended his September 11th benefit concert in Madison Square Garden a few weeks ago, I can personally attest to his commitment to New York and the impact he has on New Yorkers of all ages. He is most definitely deserving of the top MC of 2009 title.” Nice.
