Jermaine Dupri Is Acting The Fool+Other Ish

So Jermaine Dupri thinks he's 21 again. He threw up all over his girlfriend Janet Jackson at his birthday party a few nights ago. And we hear she was NOT pleased:
The other night, Dupri and his squeeze, Janet Jackson, went to Tenjune, where, spies say, they shared bottles of Jay-Z's Ace of Spades Champagne and Patrón tequila with Ne-Yo, Busta Rhymes and Ice-T - until Dupri "vomited in Janet's lap. Ms. Jackson bolted out of the scene and sped off in her chauffeured Maybach." A rep for Jackson and Dupri didn't return calls. A rep for Tenjune declined to comment. Meanwhile, we hear Dupri is under some stress at work. The head of urban music for Island/Def Jam put out his lady's last album, "Discipline," which flopped. Our insider said, "[IDJ head] L.A. Reid had wanted to make changes to the album, make it fresher with some newer artists added in, but Janet said no - and Jermaine backed her up. He looks silly right now."
Wow JD.  Get it together. And a lil something for my fellas: Lil Wayne is now blogging for ESPN. He claims he never watches anything but sports, so this is the perfect gig for him. And y'all already know his take on the NFL and other sports are hilarious. Check out his first entry here. More ish when you read the rest...

Give It Up MiMi+Rih Rih Jet Sets To London

So Mrs. Cannon still hasn't gotten the memo that her ass can't act. As if Glitter wasn't bad enough, she's making folks suffer through her upcoming film Tennessee. And now she's set to star in a new movie called Push as the director of that movie was reportedly so impressed by her Tennessee role. In Push, she'll plays a Harlem social worker ministering to an obese, HIV-positive woman impregnated twice by her father. Oh, but there's more. MiMi wants to grace us with her acting presence yet again in a Holiday musical based on an upcoming holiday album of her. According to the Daily News: It's about a town outside a city - perhaps not unlike Mariah's hometown of Huntington, L.I. - where a ruthless developer wants to turn it into one big mall. "Mariah doesn't want to let that happen," says her producing partner Benny Medina. "Her character uses song and love to keep the Christmas spirit alive." I can't even front...her first Christmas album stays in the the cd changer around the Holidays because that ish is classic. But those shenanigans she calls acting really need to stop.

Jay-Z Answers Teairra Mari & Foxy+Floyd Gets Robbed For $7 Mill+R.Kelly's Got To Pay Ne-Yo $700k

  Jay-Z has responded to his former Roc princess Teairra Mari about her statement that he was wrong for not firing her personally.  Apparently she had to find out through other folks she was dropped from Def Jam, and she wanted hear that from Jay's mouth as she saw him like a father figure.  He has also responded to Foxy's claims that he was wrong for not calling/visiting her while she was in lock up since...in her head...they had a special bond.  He told Allhiphop.com:   As far as Foxy or Teairra Marì, these are people that I have given chances to. It’s understandable that they would be upset, but you got to look at it from my point of view as well.  I gave Teairra Marì the same shot I gave Rihanna. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.” You know that stuff is going to happen, eventually it’s going to happen.  What I’m happy about is, that no matter what people say, no one has ever said that I am dishonest or that I have taken one dime from them…I’ve never cheated anyone out of a dime. No one’s ever said that, right?” In other words, he really could give a damn what those two have to say.    Ne-Yo was awarded $700k in his lawsuit against R.Kelly.  Last year, the R pulled out the diva stops and dropped Ne-Yo from their nation wide tour with no warning.  Apparently R was jealous of Ne-Yo's stardum and he didn't want to share the flashing lights with him, but he let Keyshia Cole stay even though she was cuttin' up with her own diva antics.  Ne-Yo said he would sue the dude, especially since he's now lost respect for him as a man, and that he did.   More ish when you read the rest...

Foxy Brown Talks About Her "Clyde" Jay-Z+Event Fab+Movie Fab

  Foxy Brown (that's one of her pics from her Sept. 08 XXL spread) is talking about how her relationship with Jay isn't what it used to be and how she missed him.  And if there was any doubt he ever tapped that, gone ahead and erase it.  Here's a snippet from her XXL cover story: It's often been speculated that Foxy's heart belonged to a former partner in rhyme who went on to become her boss. She remembers when Brooklyn producer Clark Kent rolled up to her block in a white Lexus and introduced her to a tall, skinny guy with a cane. "He was so smooth. His swagger was just incredible," Foxy says. "From that moment on, Jay and I became Bonnie and Clyde," she says. Fifteen years later, on Broken Silence's "Fallin'," she raps, "If I was to die, be too many cowards alive/Fox Brown, Bonnie minus the Clyde." "IT WAS LIKE 'I NEED YOU TO HELP ME SAVE MY LIFE,' AND [JAY-Z] JUST WASN'T THERE." "A lot of things have happened over the years between Jay and I," she says of the man who signed her to a multimillion-dollar deal at Def Jam in 2005, nine years after their classic duet "Ain't No N*gga" gave him his first radio hit. "But there's an unbreakable bond that will never die. 50 wanted me to be part of his team so bad. He was like, 'Look, I'll do it with Jay, half and half.' And, of course, Jay said no. At one point, 50 asked, 'Why do you have so much loyalty to this N*gga?'  Jay and I have history. There are things that he could have done better, as far as his loyalty to me, and I'm sure I've made mistakes that he felt he could've prevented." Foxy chokes up. "When I lost my hearing, Jay gave me the respect to go heal myself. He stuck with me along the way. But there are times when I just really needed him, and it wasn't even about Foxy Brown and Jay-Z. It was just like, 'I need you to help me save my life,' and he just wasn't there." The tears are streaming down her cheeks. "I would never denounce him in public. That's just how I feel. But I've been incarcerated for eight months, and Jay's been everywhere, and he hasn't mentioned one thing about, 'Tell her I love her. Tell her to be strong.' That broke my heart more than anything. When they sent me to jail, I just knew he would be there-everyone came. But he never showed up... My mother always says,jay also said this,in the tru life freestyle 'Inga, when a person shows you who they are, believe them. Been showing me all through the years and you just don't wanna believe it.'"   Oh Inga.   Pics of Terrence Howard and Jaslene at events and the new Soul Men movie when you read the rest...
