Word has it Beyonce is still on the trek for an Oscar. She's supposedly been tapped by film producer Jon Peters to star in an upcoming remake of A Star Is Born. The movie was originally done back in the 30's, then a musical remake was done in the 50's. And another version done in the 70's.

MTV & BET Get Hit By The Recession+Diddy vs. Idris Elba As James Bond

The folks at Viacom are cutting their expenses and staffers by 7% to prepare for economic changes. We received the official press release from MTV giving the details--850 people will be laid off in the company--which consists of the BET network, MTV network, VH1 network, etc. And they started this week--we hear some staple hosts have been laid off already and entire departments have been laid off.

Chrihanna's New Matching Tattoos+The Roots Go Late Night


We posted pics of Rihanna showing off her new tattoo a few days ago. And now it looks like her beau Chris Brown has a matching one. Cute. A very coupleish thing for a self proclaimed non-couple to do. Still no word on if it's Henna or permanent. More ish when you read the rest...

Whatever T-Pain+Jaden Smith Is The Next Karate Kid

T-Pain needs to recognize. Check out the rules he had his people send out to interviewers yesterday: "Please let interviewers know that Pain will only be discussing his album release on 11/11 and any other topics surrounding what he is currently doing. He will only answer one question on Wayne and upcoming projects they have.

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...
