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.
