Well it's that time again. T.I. had his birthday party at Atlanta's Biltmore and he ran with the flapper theme again--The Untouchables Part Deux: Dammit Tiny!  It is entirely too early in the morning for me to have to deal with this ish.  I'll speak on that and all the other pics of the night when you read the rest...

Weekend Foolishness+Celebs Do Fashion Week+Left Eye's New Album

So Pretty Ricky hit up the re-opening of Karu and Y nightclub in Miami last night with fab publicist Jessyka Phorbes: These dudes look broker and broker everytime I see them.  Especially the Trey Songz knock off.  They need to stop it.  Actually, everyone involved in the above pic needs to stop.

Updates On Kanye, J-Hud, & The Stallionaires

Who gave Real and Chance from the "I Love NY" shows a damn show of their own?  And why?  "Real Chance Of Love" is kicking off on VH1 in November I'm hearing.  These dudes even have a myspace page for it.  I just don't know how much permed out barrel curled 25 inch long hair on men I can take. The tangyness is already out of hand. Make it stop VH1. Kanye will be starring in a new show on Comedy Central that's pretty much Hip Hop meets the Muppets. The project, which is under consideration for 2009, would feature music produced and performed by West and fellow rapper Rhymefest, both of whom are serving as executive producers on the pilot alongside Jimmy Kimmel. West also hosts the pilot; the idea is to have a different celebrity guest host for every episode, similar to the setup on the original "Muppet Show."A half-hour pilot has been shot for the project, tentatively titled "Alligator Boots."

Music Updates On Janet & Christina Milian+YBF Chick Demetria Mckinney's Photoshoot

And speaking of Def Jam dropping folks, word has it Janet Jackson is dunzo at the label. No word on why she's parting ways with the label, but her man JD is still head honcho over at the Urban division there. Interesting. Christina Milian is officially on the Myspace Records label. It was rumored back in January that Myspace would be her new label home after Def Jam dropped her extra hard. And now it's official. Her label debut is due next spring. The first single, "Us Against The World," is a "cinematic power ballad" and will be available via Mypace on October 6. "I've been out of the game for one and a half years, and I think I'm long overdue for a comeback, so I'm treating this album like it's my last chance to make an impression. I'm competing with myself and being very detailed," the 26-year-old Cuban-American told Billboard. "Before, I had a label telling me what direction to go in. Now, it's my choice, so I'm being very particular about it and I'm really excited." The only place she can go from here is up at this point. I mean, really. Because YBF likes fresh faces: Famed Photographer Derek Blanks recently shot a winter fashion story featuring Tyler Perry's "House of Payne" star Demetria Mckinney: Gorgeous pics.  More when you read the rest...

Gossip Bits: R&B Chicks Fighting Over Pleasure P?+Ashanti's Newish Album+Rih Rih Goes Shopping

Pleasure P must have something that these two girls want. According to insiders the two were fighting over Pleasure P formally of "Pretty Ricky". Casha (Yung Berg's new chick on his label and the hook singer of "Give me the Business") and Teairra Mari seem to have the same taste in men. Ray-J has gotten it in with both of them as well as Lil Wayne.  Even though T. Mari just giggles and admits to going out on dates with Wayne but not being his girl when asked.  According to the snitches on the scene, after 10 bottles of Ace of Spades in Club Snatch in L.A., the two girls squared off and it wasn't pretty. Yung Berg and Pleasure P were in shock as the two girls were near blows after a hug was given to P by Casha and she did "a little booty popping on P" I'm told.  I'm mad I even listened to this story, let alone typed it out.  But I'm sure some of y'all will find humor in this foolishness.  Hollywood is turning out some of these chicks and it is indeed real. Rih Rih's spending money all over Paris: She was spotted leaving out of her hotel for a day of shopping.  Fun times. I mean, do we really need 12 of Ashanti's never-heard-before early tracks released on a new album?  Apparently she thinks so and it's called The Vault. More when you read the rest...

New Album News: Rihanna & Queen Latifah

Queen's ready to hit the music scene again after finishing the Secret Life of Bees movies.  And she's going back to her hip-hop roots.  She tells the Rolling Stone about having LL and Dr. Dre work on the album: "They pretty much did the whole album," Latifah said. "My boy Kenny Flav did one track and I think might do two more. Missy [Elliott] and Swizz Beatz are the only two people I have left. But they're mixing it right now." And she's even got jokes about her possible album title saying she may name it "The L Word"  just to mess with people's heads and the lesbian "rumors": "L was gonna stand for love though or La," she laughed. "Since people want to play games, I like to jab back sometimes just for fun, but I'm like, 'Nah, that’s too much energy wasted.' " Funny funny.

And Rihanna's also gearing up for her fourth studio release.  She recently did an interview where she dished the details about what it's going to be like: Rihanna on her upcoming album: “I’m not going to give anything away,but it’s going to be very edgy.”Good Girl Gone Bad” definitely spoke to a year in my life, a year of attitude. It stood for who I am – the attitude, the edge. “My next album will take it up a notch. I want to keep growing. I don’t want to get stuck. I want to change.” So by "taking it up a notch", she means doing shows naked and in 8 inch heels this time around? Because that's really about all that's left. Work it out then Rih Rih...
