CelebrityMania: Rihanna has been reported getting into trouble with her record label after she poses in nothing but a skimpy pair of shorts for the cover of GQ magazine’s January 2010 issue. According to Star Pulse, the 21-year-old Barbadian beauty has faced the wrath of her record label boss Antonio “L.A.” Reid since the photoshoot was so raunchy.
The “Russian Roulette” hitmaker herself has admitted things got so steamy on the photo set that the head honco of Island Def Jam threatened to step in. “It’s very sexy,” the former girlfriend of Chris Brown recalled on the photoshoot. “At one point L.A. Reid came into the shoot and he was like, ‘Rihanna, put some f–king clothes on.’ “
Meanwhile, in the interview with the magazine, Rihanna shared that music helps her overcoming her trauma following her altercation with Chris Brown. “Really, just the music. And working. ‘Cause I really didn’t want to be around anybody, for them to stare at me and stuff, and feel sorry for me. So I just stayed in the house a lot,” she said. “Then I started to get cabin fever. I was like, I’m going crazy in here.”
The Grammy Award-winning singer was recently reported to have given Kanye West a lap dance. Breaking the report was The Daily Mirror, which claimed that the R ‘n’ B singer was seen getting cozy with the rapper at a London club Whisky Mist. The tabloid added that the twosome “flirted outrageously and dirty-danced” during the night outing.
AceShowbiz: Mariah Carey has teamed up with one of the Young Money’s artists Nicki Minaj in a music video supporting her single “Up Out My Face”. Beside making a cameo, Nicki is also assumed to lend her vocal to the track.
As a teaser, several pictures of the forthcoming video have been outed by Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon on his official website. They capture the two singers as two Barbie dolls with Mariah wearing a red long dress, while Nicki sporting a white mini skirt.
Mariah has also promised to post several stills on Twitter. “So, you all know I don’t know how to twitpic-But I WILL! Check out some pics from ‘UOMF’ featuring the fabulous Nicki Minaj! Stonewinner!” she wrote. However, it is still unclear whether or not the snaps will be new ones.
“Up Out My Face” appears in Mariah Carey’s latest studio album “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel”. The track was written and produced by Mariah, The-Dream and Christopher “Tricky” Stewart. Its music video is yet to have any premiere date.
Last night (December 21), Queens rapper Lloyd Banks performed at New York City’s B.B. Kings. The streets may have been filled with snow and slush, but the bad weather didn’t stop fans from coming out to see the G-Unit solider from putting on a great show.
Banks ran through classic mixtape cuts, including “Victory Freestyle,” before he took fans back to choice selections off his platinum debut, The Hunger For More, like “I’m So Fly” and “On Fire.” Blue Hefner balanced out the show with more solo material from his second LP Rotten Apple.
Towards the end of the show, Banks told the DJ to stop the music so he could ask the crowd a question. “How do y’all feel about the police,” he asked. In true N.W.A fashion, the audience replied with, “Fuck the police!”
Banks then got the crowd to chant “Fuck Rick Ross,” which set the stage for Banks to tear into the Miami boss’ character on “Officer Down.” From there, Banks closed out his set spittin’ his verse off crooner Joe’s “Ride With You” and G-Unit classics, like “Rider, Pt. 2.” All in all, Banks held his own and brought the heat to the Rotten Apple on a cold night.
-Big shoutout to Juelz Santana and Skull Gang who came through and ripped the stage alongside with Banks.
According to Whoo Kid, the incident took place Monday (December 21) night.
“Finally out of Nigeria!! Last show they shot Ak47s at the fans – wtf!!!! It felt so good to see a BIG MAC in Germany !!! food!!

MaShonda and Swizz Beats put their differences aside over the weekend and threw a lavish birthday party for their 3 year old son Kaseem Jr. Kaseem was a sharp little heartbreaker, decked out in a John Galliano Boys Grey Pinstripe Blazer (retail $310) and some Louis Vuitton sneakers. Such a beautiful family! And MaShonda’s glowing. It seems as though she’s found a special someone as well.. (Necole Bitchie)
