Philly TransWoman Padge Windslowe once Pumped Amber Rose Buttocks!



Philly TransWoman Padge-Victoria Windslowe once Pumped Amber Rose Buttocks!
Black Madam claims Amber Rose a 'walking billboard' for her work
A Gothic hip-hop artist charged with killing a London break dancer with an illegal buttocks injection name-dropped her way through testimony Friday, saying one of the celebrities who sought her out became "a walking billboard" for her work.
Padge-Victoria Windslowe claimed model Amber Rose started receiving injections from her before she became famous and continued until two days before the 2011 death of dancer Claudia Aderotimi.
She said under cross-examination that Kanye West dropped Rose off for one procedure when the two were dating and that she was supposed to perform a "correction" on Nicki Minaj that never happened.

Representatives for Rose and Minaj did not immediately respond to emails requesting comment.
Windslowe, 45, who returns to the stand Monday, talked of the dizzying array of names, addresses, careers and identities she has assumed in the 20 years she acknowledges doing underground cosmetic surgery on the side.
Clients from rappers to strippers to fellow transgender women paid thousands to plump their posteriors, Windslowe said.
"Amber was like a walking billboard," she said of Rose, who was raised in Philadelphia. "She brought a lot of girls from VH1."
Asked by Assistant District Attorney Carlos Vega why they would choose an unlicensed practitioner over a Los Angeles plastic surgeon, Windslowe said, "I was the best, and I don't mean that to be cocky."
Her Black Madam moniker, she said, came from many lucrative years running an escort service employing male, female and transgender sex workers.

"It's set up like a friendly date, but I'm not naive about what goes on," she said. "They're doing something. It's not just escorting."
She said she kept half their take and made good money. But she stopped after her father died in 2003 because she "didn't feel good about it anymore."

The names she used on bank cards and mail deliveries before and after Aderotimi's death included birth name Forrest Gordon, the more feminine Foreest Leona Gordon and Foreest Leona Giordani.
"I thought it sounded like a movie star name, so I liked it," she said of the last name.
She acknowledged that police found a fake passport, Social Security card and New York driver's license during searches of some of the five Philadelphia-area properties linked to her in the years before her 2012 arrest.

See report from CBS Philly!

Windslowe is charged with third-degree murder in the death of the 20-year-old Aderotimi, who was injected with low-grade silicone at a Philadelphia airport hotel.
Doctors have told jurors during the two-week trial that the syringe hit a vein and sent silicone to the woman's lungs. Two other women testified they spent months in the hospital with similar injuries after visits with Windslowe, including one who received an injection on a dining room table at a "pumping party."
Defense lawyer David Rudenstein seemingly hoped to show jurors through Windslowe's testimony that she prepped them with alcohol before and after the injections and took other safety measures.
However, prosecutors say, she mostly used nonsterile, industrial silicone, not the medical-grade silicone that is encased in implants during standard cosmetic surgeries.
"I told (clients) I've been doing this for years, I've done it to myself and my friends, and I was trained by a nurse up in Washington Heights (in New York City) back in 1995," Windslowe said Friday, explaining her credentials.
On the stand Thursday, Windslowe said she was trained by a doctor in Thailand and another in South America who performed her sex-change operation.

She said she started doing body sculpting two decades ago to help transgender friends. Transgender women often want to plump up an indent in the side of the buttocks they call "the boy pocket," she said.
Windslowe charged about $1,000 to $2,000 depending on the amount of silicone requested. Some clients, including a pole dancer she discussed Friday, saw her a half-dozen times.
Windslowe told jurors Thursday that she has worked on thousands of people, earning the title "the Michelangelo of buttocks injections" from her clients. She says she uses the same products on herself.

WOW……She’s giving up the girls!

He Lived Long and He Prospered! R.I.P Leonard Nimoy Dead at 83!



He Lived Long and He Prospered! R.I.P Leonard Nimoy Dead at 83!
Leonard Nimoy, actor who played Mr Spock on Star Trek, dies aged 83
Nimoy, who played the legendary character in the original Star Trek television series, died of pulmonary disease after being hospitalised earlier this week
Leonard Nimoy, who enchanted generations of audiences with his depiction of Star Trek’s human-alien philosopher and first officer Mr Spock, has died at his home in Los Angeles. He was 83.
The actor died on Friday morning of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in Bel-Air, his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, told the New York Times. He had been hospitalised at UCLA medical center with breathing difficulties days earlier.
Nimoy’s last tweet, sent on Monday, suggested he knew the end was near: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.”

“Live long and prosper” was the Vulcan salutation which he made famous as Spock, and which he and fans carried into real life. Tributes to the actor, director, photographer, writer, poet, musician and teacher agreed he had indeed done so.

“I loved him like a brother,” William Shatner, who starred alongside him as Captain Kirk, wrote on Facebook. “We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.”
George Takei, who played Sulu, said the world had lost a great man. “And I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard. You taught us to ‘Live Long And Prosper,’ and you indeed did, friend. I shall miss you in so many, many ways.”

Even the US president took a moment on Friday to appreciate Nimoy’s most famous character. “Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy,” Barack Obama said. “I loved Spock,”
Nimoy announced last year that he was battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and attributed it to smoking, even though he gave up the habit long ago. With typical humour he tweeted last week: “I quit smoking 30 yrs ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP.”

He enjoyed an enduring and eclectic career in the arts and in film behind the camera but it was as the pointy-eared, relentlessly logical sidekick to William Shatner’s Captain Kirk that Nimoy will be best remembered.
Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, called Spock its “conscience”, a quizzical, alien and yet also humane moral sense which pervaded the original NBC series as well as subsequent big-screen outings, most recently in the rebooted films directed by JJ Abrams.
The actor, born in Boston to Ukrainian immigrants and Orthodox Jews, embraced the figure of the lone alien on the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, exploring the universe with more emotional, fully human characters.
His first autobiography, I Am Not Spock, published in 1977, said that as the Vulcan he found the best of both worlds, gaining public approval while still being able to play an other-worldly character. He published another biography, I Am Spock, in 1995.
“To this day, I sense Vulcan speech patterns, Vulcan social attitudes and even Vulcan patterns of logic and emotional suppression in my behavior,” Nimoy noted. It was not a complaint. “Given the choice, if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock.”

Tributes flooded Twitter.
“RIP Leonard Nimoy. So many of us at NASA were inspired by Star Trek. Boldly go...” said the US space agency @Nasa.

“He created a role that nobody else could play. Multitalented writer, actor, director. A terrific & sweet man,” tweeted the talkshow host Larry King.

Zachary Quinto, who plays the younger Spock in the rebooted films, said: “My heart is broken. i love you profoundly my dear friend. and i will miss you everyday. may flights…”

The music producer @kaskade tweeted: “Rest easy Leonard Nimoy. First guy to make being so weird so cool.”

The son of a barber, Nimoy’s origins were hardly exotic. He started acting in primary school and continued through community college and during a stint in the army, where he served as a sergeant and participated in shows at Fort McPherson in Georgia.
Discharged in 1955, he moved to California and worked as taxi driver, cinema usher and drama teacher before achieving notice on TV shows like Rawhide and Perry Mason before landing the role of Spock in the original NBC series, which debuted in 1966.
Nimoy was also an unlikely sex symbol. According to the Los Angeles Times, when he spoke at Ohio’s Bowling Green State University in the 1970s, a young woman asked: “Are you aware that you are the source of erotic dream material for thousands and thousands of ladies around the world?”

“May all your dreams come true,” he responded.

Spock made a rare foray into sensuality in episode 24 of the original series when aphrodisiacal spores on the planet Omicron Ceti III loosened his human side and a longing for Leila Kalomi, played by Jill Ireland.
The Vulcan salute, which Trekkers used at fan conventions and film screenings, Nimoy adapted from a gesture he remembered from attending an Orthodox synagogue in childhood.
Men chanted prayers at an altar with their arms raised and fingers parted between the ring and middle fingers and thumbs stuck out – a representation of the Hebrew letter shin, the start of Shaddai, a term for God, Nimoy said.

He embraced roles reflecting his Jewish heritage. In 1982 he appeared as the former husband of the Israeli prime minister Golda Meir in the TV movie A Woman Called Golda”. He also played a Holocaust survivor in the courtroom TV film Never Forget.
His photography book, Shekhina, pictured nude women, including a cover shot of a woman wearing Jewish ritual objects traditionally worn by men. Nimoy shrugged off complaints and said his his work was consistent with the teaching of the kabbalah. “I’m not introducing sexuality into Judaism. It’s been there for centuries.”
Only the most dedicated Trekkies embraced his forays into music, such as kitsch covers covers of songs like “If I Had a Hammer.” He titled his first album Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock’s Music From Outer Space.

Nimoy is survived by his older brother, Melvin, his ex-wife, Sandi Zober, their two children, Adam and Julie, six grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
NBC cancelled Star Trek after three seasons, citing low ratings, but its sci-fi adventures, optimistic world view and campy humour won a growing army of devotees who turned Spock and Kirk, plus Dr McCoy, Sulu, Uhura and Chekov, into pop culture legends.

Nimoy branched into directing, including two of the Star Trek features, and the 1987 hit comedy Three Men and a Baby.
His sonorous voice narrated the History channel’s Ancient Mysteries and provided the voice for numerous animated characters. In addition to his autobiographies he also published books of poetry and photography.
Flowers were due to be placed at his star on Hollywood Boulevard. R.I.P Sir!

Mo'Nique Pens Letter To Black America On Supporting The LGBTQ Community!


#ThisIsLove: "Blackbird" Star Mo'Nique Pens Open Letter To Black America On Loving And Supporting The LGBT Community
Last week, Academy Award winner Mo'Nique made headlines after an article in THR revealed that she was ALLEGEDLY blackballed by Hollywood.  One of the main criticisms she faced (according to a conversation she recalled with director Lee Daniels) was that she refused to play the game.  That's why it's interesting that she's penned an open letter on Ebony.com about the LGBT community and Black America. 

On April 24, 2015, Mo'Nique and Isaiah Washington are starring in Patrick Ian-Polk's film Blackbird, about a young singer struggling with his sexuality and how he's treated by others in his small Southern Baptist community.

Whereas Mo'Nique has been accused of refusing to promote her projects in the past...she's promoting this one.  And with good reason...she's also a producer of the film. Aha - looks like somebody is ready to play the game now! Once those checks dry up and the calls stop coming - you do what you gotta go.  

Here's her letter:

I can remember the first time I was introduced to the gay community. I was 16 years old. It was a group of beautiful young Black men. They were friendly, kind and funny. They introduced me to the gay nighliife scene--The Clubhouse in Washington DC and The Garage in New York City-- and can I say, I’ve never partied so hard in my life! What a moment in time. It was at The Garage that I saw Grace Jones rocking out on top of a speaker, completely naked.

For as great as these experiences were, I was heartbroken to hear over and over again as most of my gay friends had the same unnerving story about being ostracized for being who they were made to be. Some of them had families rejecting them, others were simply not accepting of themselves. That made those clubs their safe haven. I found out that I had a lot in common with them, despite my own gender and sexual orientation, I was a plus-sized Black woman who knew what it was to be ostracized and rejected by both my own family and society because of my size. 
When my husband, Sidney and I received the script for Blackbird from Isaiah Washington through our attorney Ricky Anderson, we knew we wanted to be a part of this necessary and amazing film. Blackbird is our love letter not only to the gay community, but to the church community as well. We all want to be loved.

Our hope is with this movie people can start living the life that they were given and not the one someone thinks they should live.

As a little girl, I had an uncle named Donald. My family treated him different and I didn’t understand why until I got older and understood that he was gay. Uncle Donald never really seemed to be too happy, and the only time I really saw him laughing was when he was drunk. "What a way to live," I would always think to myself. Not being accepted for simply being how you were made to be. With this campaign #ThisIsLuv, maybe we can truly understand the meaning of the word 'love.' We believe the moment we practice the meaning of love, people can stop 'coming out' and simply just be who they are. Imagine having to make an announcement that you’re heterosexual. Imagine one day that to be considered normal, you must stop being heterosexual based on someone’s belief and go against everything you feel inside of you--just to survive, to be accepted!. Sounds silly, right? It is.bird 
Blackbird is a movie that allows you to come inside and see the journey that one family has to take on the road to acceptance. Julian Walker, who plays Randy, is fearless and brave to tell this story through his eyes and own personal journey. For the parents who may be struggling to accept their baby for who they were made to be, this film is for you. For the parents who are full of acceptance, this film is for you. For every LGBT person who has ever faced resistance for living their truth, this film is for you. With this film and this campaign, we are truly trying to make a difference. We hope not just the Black community, but all communities will come to a place of acceptance so people can really live their truth."
Blackbird will be in Theaters soon!

A Film On The Life Of House Music Pioneer Frankie Knuckles In The Works!



New Film On The Life Of House Music Pioneer Frankie Knuckles In The Works
A new movie about the life of legendary house music pioneer Frankie Knuckles has recently been announced.
The film, The Warehouse, named after the popular Chicago after-hours club where Knuckles came to prominence, will be produced by Bob Teitel (Barber Shop, Men of Honor), restaurateur and socialite Billy Dec (Elston Films/Rockit Ranch), Randy Crumpton (The Truth) and Chicago-based club owner Joe Shanahan (Double Door/Metro/SmartBar).

“Just from traveling all over the world and talking to people about the nightlife business that I’m in, it’s interesting to see how obsessed they are with house music and yet it blows my mind that they have zero idea of this connection that house music has to Chicago because of Frankie Knuckles,” said Dec. “Having spent decades now in this business I am just obsessed with the fact that this beautiful story about this man [and his music] has not been told.”

Known as the “Godfather of House Music,” the Grammy Award-winning Knuckles died on March 31, 2014, of complications from diabetes at the age of 59.

After The Warehouse shut down in 1983, Knuckles opened the PowerPlant nightclub to feed his growing following of “househeads.” He then moved on to New York City and continued to play a number of residences at nightclubs all over the world by popular demand. In 2004, the city of Chicago honored Knuckles with a street named in his honor, and in 2005 he was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame.

The film’s producers are hosting a launch party and Frankie Knuckles Foundation benefit to kick off the film’s production at Chicago hot spot The Underground (56 W. Illinois) on March 31 at 6 p.m. Tickets start at $20 and all proceeds will benefit the Knuckles foundation.

‘America’s Next Top Model’ Contestant Mirjana Puhar Found DEAD!
In a shocking turn of events, it was revealed yesterday that 19-year-old “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Mirjana Puhar was one of the victims in a triple homicide at her boyfriend’s home on Tuesday.
According to TMZ, sources close to Puhar say that the murder happened at the Charlotte, North Carolina, home of Puhar’s 23-year-old boyfriend, Jonathan Alvarado, and that the three bodies were discovered by a friend of the couple who visited the home after getting a call about hearing gunshots at Alvarado’s place.
The friend reportedly entered the home and found the bodies of Puhar and Alavarado, as well as money scattered across the home, and immediately called 911. However, the friend didn’t initially see the body of the third victim, 21-year-old Jusmar Gonzaga-Garcia, who was reportedly Alvarado’s best friend.
Nineteen-year-old Emmanuel Jesus Rangel was arrested for the killings and charged with three counts of first-degree murder. Although the case is still open, so far police believe that the killings were drug related.
Puhar had only been romantically involved with her boyfriend for a few months, and she had only recently moved in with the two men before her death.

The ANTM Family left their condolences
“Saddened to learn about #ANTM Cycle 21 contestant Mirjana Puhar’s murder. Remembering her fondly and thinking of all her Friends and Family. RIP #mirjana.”

“Rest In Peace to my baby girl my cycle mate@mirjanapuhar I Love You cookie! If you love someone let them know #Cycle21forever #ANTM#MirjanaArmy #AllModelsGoToHeaven”

Our sincere condolences go out to Puhar’s family, as well as her “ANTM” family.



Does NFL Star Dez Bryant's have an ALLEGED video that could DESTROY his NFL Career?
Nope, this time it isn't Ray Rice. There's supposedly a new "tape" in town....and it's explosive (at least that's what 's being alleged).

Dez.....what happened?

If you're a football fan, you know that there's huge scandal brewing around Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant.  While most scandals stem from rumor and speculation, the Dez Bryant saga is interesting because of the whole "If....when" aspect.  Here's what we can decipher: There might be a tape of Dez Bryant.  And on said probable tape, he MAY be doing something "5 times worse than Ray Rice."  If there is a tape...when will it drop?

News of an alleged tape of Dez Bryant ALLEGEDLY doing something burnt up the net when well-respected ESPN sports reporter Adam Schefter revealed that he's been working on something for months.  But he can't talk about it.
"Well listen, whatever we’ve been working on is not ready and maybe it never will be. Who knows? You’ve got to be very careful on these things. People can talk about videos, they can talk about this they can talk about that. The fact of the matter is, it doesn’t mean anything and it’s really not fair to him right now until you have all your facts in line. Which we spent a long time trying to do."

For those wondering why a tape would be surfacing now, one NFL insider links it to Dez switching agencies.  Allegedly, Dez's former agency paid off a blackmailer to keep "the tape" out of the public eye.  Oops.....nobody told that to Dez's new representation over at Roc Nation.  Once the checks stopped for whoever was being paid to keep quiet....rumors of a tape began to surface. 
Again....no one has seen the video.  No one can confirm what's on it.  And we're a bit baffled on how one can confirm a video even exists if it has never been seen.

Now that Dez's contract is up for negotiation....folks are talking even more.  Many are pissed that the Cowboys organization is so gung-ho about putting a franchise tag on him, despite his off-field behavior.  In 2011 alone, he had 6 incidents of police being called to his home in Desoto, TX.  No arrests took place. 

But, this new alleged video in question is supposedly the newest incident to be discovered from 2011.  According to NFL.com:
A report filed by the Lancaster (Texas) Police Department described the response by an officer to "an unknown disturbance" in a Walmart parking lot during the early morning of July 11. Vehicles registered to Bryant were at the scene in the parking lot, and Bryant later arrived in another car, when he was spoken to by a Lancaster PD officer. Upon further investigation, "it was determined that there was no offense" and "all parties were advised they were free to go."

Over on Dez's Twitter timeline, he wrote this cryptic statement this week:

"Just quit with the b.s. … It’s clear as day what's going on… I might need to do a exclusive interview about my life these past 5 years since the world is destined to know.  "I use to let people take advantage of my life now that I’m no longer allowing that to happen it seems to be a problem… I’m not ashamed of none of my past incidents because that’s what made me who I am today."

Something happened....we just don't know what it was.  But if/when Dez is ready to do that "exclusive" interview, we'll be twiddling our thumbs waiting...


Who stole Lupita Nyong'o's $150,000 Oscar dress?
$150,000 dress worn by @Lupita_Nyongo to the Oscars, stolen from West Hollywood hotel
Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives are investigating the theft of the $150,000 pearl-adorned dress worn by actress Lupita Nyong’o to the Academy Awards on Sunday.

Sheriff’s officials received a call about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday that a dress estimated to be worth $150,000 was stolen from a room at the London West Hollywood hotel, said Lt. William Nash of the sheriff’s West Hollywood station.

The dress was a white Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein gown decorated with 6,000 pearls.
Detectives were at the hotel Thursday morning investigating the theft, Nash said. He said the value of the dress is part of the investigation and no arrests have been made.

A call to Nyong’o’s representative was not immediately returned. The London West Hollywood hotel declined to comment. Detectives were reviewing security camera footage. I hope this gown doesn’t show up at The Awards Ball on this weekend!


Was Chrissy Teigen A Drunken Mess In Miami?
John Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen makes a scene at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival… 

From Gossip Extra
Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen acted so strangely at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami Beach that red-faced festival organizers tried to shoo her off the stage.
It didn’t work and Teigen, who was unsteady on her feet, suffered a wardrobe malfunction before hundreds of food lovers and hostess Rachael Ray at the festival’s big-deal Burger Bash.
Teigen, who wore a loose-fitting white shirt with stained sleeves under a wool sweater jacket, ended up on the stage with organizers, competing chefs, Food Network star Marc Murphy and Ray.
Teigen, 29, was giddy and giggly and kept taking bows for no reason.
At one point, she hogged the giant ceremonial checks that were for the winners of the Burger Bash, then seemed confused on what to do with them.

With more than 50 people on the stage around TV talker Ray, Teigen sat down on the floor at first then laid down for a little while as the ceremony continued.
Said one organizer: “We tried gently to lead her off the stage but she didn’t want to hear it. Obviously, there was something amiss.”

Kathy Griffin Staying Out of Dreadlock-Gate: ‘Thinks It’s Gone Too Far’
*Kathy Griffin, who has something to say about everyone, is keeping unusually quiet about the dreadlock drama between her “Fashion Police” co-host Giuliana Rancic and Zendaya.
According to Radar Online, Griffin is purposely staying out of the fray because she “thinks that this whole thing has gone way too far,” a source told the site.
“Kathy knows what Giuliana said was wrong, but she’s made some serious mistakes in her day too,” the friend tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “She thinks that these sort of things are bound to happen when you are trying to make people laugh.”
“Kathy is just playing Canada on this one,” the friend continues. “”She is staying neutral because she loves being a host on Fashion Police and she has gotten great response lately to her performance.”
The dispute overall seems to have died down since Rancic first said of Zendaya’s locs, “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil, maybe weed.” Griffin is actually the person who suggested “weed” first, before Rancic, seconds later, repeated it.
Meanwhile, co-host Kelly Osbourne had threatened to leave the show if the situation wasn’t “fixed” in 24 hours. Ozzy’s daughter has also calmed down, apparently pleased with Giuliana’s on-air apology:
Okay it’s time to move on now!


Nick Gordon Launches “PrayForBK” T-Shirts, Bobbi Kristina’s Family ‘HORRIFIED’
*As Bobbi Kristina lay in a coma, her boyfriend Nick Gordon and cousin Jerod Brown have launched a line of t-shirts bearing her image and the hashtag #PrayforBK.
Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Tina Brown told RadarOnline.com that the family was horrified to learn the news. “He’s doing it outside the family,” she told Radar. “They shouldn’t do that.”
But Jerod insists he’s only giving them away — “My own dime,” he said. His goal is so “when she wakes up and see people tagging her with the shirt she’s gonna know I played my part.”
He reiterated the claim on Instagram Wednesday:
According to Radar Online, Jerod continues to be friends with Gordon despite unanswered questions about what happened between Gordon and Bobbi Kristina in the days and hours before she was rushed to a hospital on January 31. Since then, her father, Bobby Brown, has refused to allow Gordon to visit his daughter’s bedside until he meets certain “conditions,” which reportedly include talking openly with investigators and the Brown family what happened.
Gordon pleaded Wednesday through Twitter postings for Bobby to at least play a recording of him talking to Bobbi Kristina, so that she could hear his voice. He tweeted, “If her father @KingBobbyBrown really cared about his daughter. Play a tape recorder with my voice her fav music LET HER WAKE UP.”


Robin Thicke, Pharrell, Marvin Gaye Family Start Copyright Infringement Trial
Robin Thicke, Pharrell Wiliams and members of Marvin Gaye‘s family started proceedings to determine if Thicke’s biggest hit infringes Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.”
In 2013, Thicke, Williams and T.I. filed a lawsuit against Gaye’s family to get declaration that their mega hit didn’t copy the late legend’s song. Nona Gaye accused Thicke of not only stealing “Got to Give It Up,” but “After the Dance” and turned it into “Love After War.”
Williams, T.I. and ex-wife Paula Patton, who co-wrote “Love After War” are ordered to testify in judge John Kronstadt‘s courtroom, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Gaye family’s attorney Richard Busch focused on Thicke and Williams’ inconsistency between depositions and interviews while promoting “Blurred Lines.” They credited Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up.” “They crafted, the evidence will show, a completely different inconsistent story in this case.”

Thicke and Williams’ attorney Howard King responded to Busch’s opening statement by telling jurors to focus on the depositions and forget about media interviews.
“There are many unsworn interviews of people trying to sell records,” he said. “It’s going to be easy to get distracted by the perhaps tawdry details of what goes on in the music business.”

Is It Real Or Fake?: Khloe Kardashian’s Butt 
The proof is in the photos, bruh. Khloe Kardashian‘s butt is faker than a $3 bill. 

We dipped way back (okay, to 2007) and compared photos of Khloe then, through the years and until now. The woman’s backside went from “noassatall” status to certified booming booty with no valid reason. There was no weight gain, besides her posterior, or child birth to account for the increase in circumference and diameter of her derriere.

Don’t believe us? Here’s the proof
Thoughts?


Young Jeezy THROWS Royal "Coming To America" Themed Party For Daughter’s 1st 
Cuteness overload! Young Jeezy apparently has a young daughter (news to us). And over the weekend, he threw a huge royal bash fit for a princess to celebrate her 1st birthday. Awww! How adorable is Young Jeezy’s baby girl? Loving her printed birthday dress and head wrap.
On Sunday, Young Jeezy was in full daddy-mode as he threw a royal “Coming to America” themed birthday bash for his baby girl Amra Nor to celebrate her first birthday.
It seems “Coming to America” themed parties are the new trend. "Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker’s wedding had a “Coming to America” theme. Alicia Keys threw a “Coming to America” themed bash for her hubby Swizz Beatz, Snoop Dogg’s song Cordell Broadus had one last week and now the Avion don is following suit.

The party came complete with tribal dancers, drummers and rose petals scattered on the floor. The kids also got their faces painted and participated in arts & crafts. 

Rapper and friend Ludacris brought his baby girl (not pictured) Cai Bella (after winning primary physical custody recently) to party.
"RHOA" star Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker came out to celebrate.
Tameka Raymond's ex-husband Ryan Glover (middle) and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed brought their kiddies out for the fun.
And what's a princess without her very own septor (and a change of clothes).
Little Amra posed with her party guests dressed in their costumes and face paint.
And Princess Amra took her spot on her throne alongside her pops. 
Too cute.
