I'm also hearing Ms.

Gilbert Arenas Is ENGAGED!+Beyonce's Having Album Issues?+BET's President Resigns

Beyonce's deadline is today to turn in her material for her new album due out Nov. 18th. But word has it she's not close to being done. And it's mainly because she's been acting in several movies and doing duets with other people like Justin Timberlake. And she's also not getting along with the VP of her daddy's Music World Company. However, the people over at Sony say she's right on track and the album is about 98% done. She's still going to release her 2 singles "If I Were A Boy" and "Single Ladies" next Tuesday. And the album will still be released Nov. 18th. Wizards baller Gilbert Arenas is dishing about his new engagement to his on again off again girlfriend Laura. And how his new fiance actually proposed to him. Here's a snippet from his engagement story: I was thinking up ways to do it, you know, maybe I’ll do like an Easter egg hunt for the ring or something. But then it came to me, I was going to kick it back old school with a “Do you like me?” note that you would do in elementary school. Only, I couldn’t write the note, because that would be like me asking her. So I got my friend to write on a piece of paper “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” in big block letters with two boxes to check off, “YES” or “NO.” Then the final step was for him to write “(READ OUT LOUD)” at the top of the note. I folded it up and had it in my pocket. So there we are at dinner and all her family is there, my dad, her dad, her friends, my friends, Antawn Jamison showed up, Mos Def and a couple people from Mos Def’s crew showed up. At the end of the meal, in front of everybody, I tell her that I have one last gift for her. I told her, “This is my gift” and I handed her the note and I sit down. She opens the note and she reads it and she says, “Read out loud,” but sort of to herself under her breath because you know, you’re always going to read something to yourself before you blurt it out to the room. Then she reads silently, “Will you marry me?” Then she flipped the note over to see if there was anything written on the back and then looked at me weird. I said to her, “You have to read it out loud.” So she goes, “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” out loud so everybody could hear her. It worked. It turns out she ended up asking me to marry her. I was like, “Oh my God!!!” and started screaming like the girl who gets asked normally does. “I can’t believe you asked me!!!! Of course I will!!! Oh my God, it’s been six long years, what took you so long???!!!??? Oh my God!!! This is unbelievable!!!!” Everyone started cracking up and laughing. But we still had the ring to take care of. It’s not like I had it and was going to get down on one knee because first of all, I only have one good knee as it is, and second of all, she’s the one who asked me. But, I had to produce the ring. I had three Ring Pops ready with three plastic red Solo cups covering them up. I took her over to the cups and told her that whichever one she picks, that’s going to be her engagement ring. So she flips over one and it’s a cherry Ring Pop. She goes for the second one, it’s a grape Ring Pop. She flips over the third one, it’s watermelon. She’s looking at me like, “Where’s the real ring?!” but I just go, “Hey, no ring gets any better than that!” Everybody was laughing. But I had really given the ring to my son. So I go, “Give it to mommy,” and my son actually gave the ring to her. So, for the record, she asked me. You can check out the rest on his blog here. Congrats to Gilbert!

Lil Wayne Is A No-Show...Again!

Once again Lil Wayne has skipped out on a show with no warning or reason. He was set to perform in Nassau, Bahamas this past weekend and didn't. The host of the concert says that he was indeed on the island, but he was "being a prick about performing". No word on whether his absence was money related. But yet again, he left his fans sorely disappointed. YBF sources in the Bahamas tell me that people even bought $20,000 suites at the venue Wayne was supposed to perform at. And the promotion company hosting the concert, Red Tottle Red City Entertainment, is not giving any refunds to anyone as of yesterday. Damn! So of course, the Bahamians are in an uproar right now and are protesting against the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism.

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."
