Etta Says She Was "Just Playing"

Etta James says she was just playin' in that now infamous audio attacking Beyonce and Prez Obama. I guess she felt bad about making ya girl cry. She tells a media outlet today:
"I'm a comedian besides a singer," James said in a telephone interview from her home on Thursday morning.

Morning Perks

Vivica Fox says the Psychic Friends Network is full of B.S. She told Black Voices that Dionne Warwick's friends are "using her unauthorized likeness, footage, voice and photographs as an endorsement of their service." And she's ordered them to cease and desist immediately. Um, this ad we saw yesterday didn't really seemed pieced together. Just sayin' Viv. I mean, were you having a conversation with a friend about your Psychic Friend and they tapped your conversation--and put videos in your home? Because that would be some crazy ish. Whatev. Viv is pretty much livid and denies signing on to endorse the PFN. But there's no word on where all the footage came from. Womp. Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubrey say they're ready for more kiddies. Now that Baby Nahla is almost a 1 year old, the couple say they are "absolutely" ready for more babies. According to Hollyscoop:
When asked if they would be expanding their broad to 8 kids, like Gabriel's own family, he said, "[We're going to] keep it under 4."
Expect to see Halle on Preggers Watch sometime in the near future. More morning perks when you read the rest...

Taraji & Friends CELEBRATE!+The Dream IS NOT Christina Milian's New Boo

Taraji P. Henson got together with some friends at Mastro's Steakhouse recently to celebrate her Oscar nomination: Sanaa, Tyrese, Nia Long, and other were all there to kick it. And The Dream is debunking "rumors" that he and Christina Milian are a couple now.  After these pics hit the net yesterday of the two partying it up together, certain people jumped to conclusions just like we knew they would:

But Dream tells MTV.com it's strictly a work relationship and they're just friends.  He's producing some tracks for her.  And this time I def believe it.  I doubt Chris dumped Gumby for Mr. Falsetto. More pics of Taraji and friends when you read the rest...

Morning Perks...

Kelly Rowland is speaking out yet again.  A rumor spread that she's having some financial brokeness and foreclosure issues--thanks to her slashing the price of her Miami home that's on the market by $500k.  But her publicist insists that's false and it has nothing to do with a financial crisis.  Kelly is just ready to get it off her hands since she has actually relocated to Europe:
"Reports that Kelly Rowland’s Miami home is in foreclosur

In Case You Care...

Dawn Richard of Danity Kane has confirmed what TheYBF.com broke first several months ago. Danity Kane is o-vah and she's pretty much the last one standing. Which-- naturally--leads to a solo career we all know Diddy is about to exploit.

CONFIRMED: Kelly Rowland Has AXED Mathew Knowles!

TheYBF.com reported LAST MONTH that Kelly Rowland was axing Mathew Knowles as her manager.  And despite other folks acting like they were breaking exclusive news saying the same thing this week (as usual), our YBF sources were first...and correct.
