Getting sued for $35,000 definitely does not feel so good to rapper Mase -- especially when he claims he doesn't even have any obligation to pay the money in the first place!
Mase has been fighting an ongoing legal battle with Aydin and Company, a jeweler in Atlanta, since the summer. According to legal docs filed in Georgia, they claim Mase owes them $35,000 dating alllllll the way back to 2005.
According to court filings, the jewelers haven't been able to serve Mase with legal papers after trying multiple times at his Georgia home -- each time being turned away by staff who say he isn't there. They claim he's been ducking them for months and they had a process server file an affidavit in the case ... stating Mase is "evading service."
For his part, Mase filed papers asking for the suit to be dismissed ... claiming improper service and the fact that he never signed the "alleged contract at issue in case."
Universal Music Group, which oversees Interscope Records, may be adding on to rap star 50 Cent's list of frustrations as the music empire has taken down his new "They Burn Me" music video from YouTube. It's possible that UMG found something in 50 Cent's video that would not have been good "for the sake of the artist", as they lead consumers to believe as what they want. The rapper's own Youtube account was responsible for posting this new music video, claiming it as the "official" version. Previous to this, the label had the rapper's personal website taken down. Their reasoning being that it was a pirate site. It seems that 50 Cent intended the video as a Christmasgift to his fans, being that he tried to release it on the 25th. Although, he is not the only artist with which UMG has taken a stronger management approach. They had removed videos from several other of their label artists. (MXDWN) It appears Universal Music Group (UMG)…
Hmmmm....... As I was searching for stories to post this one caught my eyes.
From BaazarDaily NEW YORK) — In a strange yet suspected twist to the story of Beyonce’s birth we received an email this morning with a rather unexpected tip. Our anonymous tipper stated this: ‘Nobodies seen Beyonce because she’s hiding out while the surrogate mother is giving birth to her baby. The big ‘Celebrity VIP’ is the surrogate disguised as Beyonce in case any of the paparazzi get too close to the hospital before and after the birth’
I believe you! Beyonce's family members are whispering throughout Manhattan! Some are saying that Beyonce's surrogate is pregnant with two babies. Expect Beyonce to drop this news on the 4th. You know how special the 4th means to her. If the surrogate gives birth on the 5th or 10th, Beyonce and Jay-Z will tell Hollywood that their child (or children) were born on the 4…

There were a lot of sexy ads this year but only one could be the sexiest. According to Advertising Age magazine, that one is Rihanna’s Aramani Jean and Underwear Campaign. Donning a bleach blonde short do’ and a lacy bra and panty set, Rihanna poses seductively in the backseat of a 1950s car in one shot taken by photographer Steve Klein. In two other photos, Rihanna’s lace bra is visible under a leather jacket with an added pair of fitted jeans as she arches her back over the hood of the vintage black ride, seemingly in ecstasy. The black and white images, with light beaming in all the right places over Rihanna’s toned body, add to the ads’ mystique, making them worthy of the crown. Even fully clothed in a fourth photo, the singer’s take-charge pose oozes sexy. Armani knew what it was doing when it tapped this sex symbol as its spokeswoman for its fall/winter 2011-12 campaign. All we can say to Rihanna is “you da one” girl. Congrats!
Here is a few juicy tidbits from the interview by Eleven8
ON HER “SOFT PORN” COMMENT ABOUT KIMBELLA… BA: You’ve done Show Magazine, King Magazine, Smooth Girl…Kimbella most recently, they touched on it on the show, did Black Men Magazine. You described that genre, with Kimbella anyway, as “soft porn”. Do you feel the same way about when you did those magazines?
EM: When I did them, you have to remember, I was new to the game but even then I was always very outspoken with things. For instance, with the “Candy Shop” video when I was doing the lead with 50 Cent I was very adamant with the director (Jessy Torrero). I had a bustier on and the scene was in a bed and it was very seductive in that sense already. I kind of spoke out and said ‘Listen, I need some jean shorts in this scene. I need to wear some jean shorts.’ I understand the booty shorts match the bustier… but you know, I’ve always been outspoken in that sense. A lot of girls don’t understand that …
50 Cent is using his online clout to get what he wants. After the success of his latest mixtape and viral videos, the rap megastar is making threats, telling his label to move forward with his album or he’ll release more free music.
The video for “Put Ya Hands Up,” a cut off 50’s mixtape The Big 10, has racked up 3.2 million views in four days. In response to its popularity, 50 delivered an ultimatum to Jimmy Iovine, the CEO of his label Interscope Records. “I got 3,500,000 views in 3 day on hands up. Ok I need a record deal jimmy iovine , call me early tomorrow or I’m putting out another mix tape,” threatened 50, adding, “Anybody want to sign me I’m a young hungry artist and I work harder then everybody in hiphop call me tomorrow.” This is not the first time 50 has publicly called out his label on Twitter. In a recent tweet, he chastised Interscope for prematurely announcing a release date for his single, “Girls Go Wild” featuring Jeremih. He is reportedly not happy with the wa…
80’s soul singer Vesta Williams was found dead back in her hotel room on
September 22nd, 2011 due to what seems to be of natural causes.
Singer/producer Norwood Young, a close friend of the Williams family, has
revealed to EURweb.com that Williams apparently died from complications of an
enlarged heart. Autopsy results were released earlier this week, and they
contradict rumors of the singer dying from an overdose of sleep medication.
Williams was in the midst of taping her episode of TV One’s ‘Unsung’
episode when she passed away. There will be a special dedicated to the late
songstress airing on January 2, 2012 and will feature interviews with Young,
Vivica Fox and Vesta herself.
During her music career, Williams had
six top 10 hits on the Billboard R&B chart, including "Special" and
Tami Roman is a bona fide reality star, but that’s not to suggest she doesn’t see where the genre has gone off course a bit. From damaging friendships to reinforcing negative stereotypes, she offers Sister 2 Sister her insight on how shows, like “Basketball Wives,” affect people’s real lives. So maybe a new venture, like her own reality series, will help Tami turn the tide and offer a more positive image of Black women to TV. Is that something she’d consider? Find out. *** Tracy: NeNe Leakes said reality shows ruin relationships. As a reality TV star, what's your take on this? Tami: I think there is a bit of truth to that in the sense that reality shows serve as a mirror. You are watching your life play out with your family and friends. All of a sudden you start to view things differently. You find elements of yourself that may need to be addressed and sometimes you see things in other people that you never noticed before. It brings everything to the forefront. Tr…
Love & Hip Hop" star Kimbella Vanderhee tells TMZ, Erica Mena wasn't edited to look like the bad guy during their massive hair-pulling cat fight in this week's episode -- Erica WAS the bad guy ... and VH1 just showed her for who she truly is.
As we first reported, Erica claims VH1 editors clipped the show to make her look like the villain -- when she appeared to unleash an unprovoked verbal attack on Kimbella, accusing her of cheapening the video vixen industry by agreeing to work for pennies.
Kimbella flipped, throwing a glass at Erica ... and the fight blew up from there. You've all seen the fight footage ... it's awesome. But now, Kimbella's coming to the defense of VH1 -- claiming producers didn't misrepresent Erica on the show ... the fight happened exactly the way everyone saw it on television.
Kimbella tells us, "VH1 didn't do editing on anything with [Erica]. That's who she is" -- insisting she's using the fight for public…

Ben's video, which his family found just hours after his death, showed him revealing a series …
NYPOST Now Jay-Z has only 98 problems. The hip-hop mogul is off the hook for an $18,000 judgment, slapped on him by state workers’-compensation regulators, officials said last night. A Manhattan judge had ordered the “99 Problems” rapper to fork over $18,000 for allegedly failing to pay workers’-comp insurance for employees at his plush TriBeCa pad, court records showed. Jay-Z’s camp insisted all day yesterday it was a big misunderstanding. And by last night, officials in Albany agreed. “After consulting with the employer’s insurer, the board expects this matter to be resolved in the next few days, resulting in the judgment being vacated,” said Brian Keegan, a spokesman for the New York State’s Workers’ Compensation Board. The state had previously claimed Shawn Carter, 42 — Jay-Z’s birth name — failed to pay insurance from Sept. 30, 2009, to Dec. 30, 2009, for staff at 195 Hudson St. The complaint was filed in March, and the board secured a Supreme Court judgment on Nov. 22. Jay-Z’s reps c…
