The Daily Roundup for June 1


Janet Jackson Talks With Prevention Magazine.
Here are some of the things janet had to say in her spread by Prevention magazine.
On being the spokeswoman for Nutrisystem:“I think people really connect with the idea of someone who’s gained and lost weight in a very public way, and also someone who’s an emotional eater.”

On being an example to her niece Paris, Michael’s 14-year-old daughter who landed her first film role in Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys:

“We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once. I think there’s a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college—or not—but wait till she turns 18. She’s a very tough, smart girl. But it’s a cutthroat industry. I wouldn’t want my child to do it.”
On the dichotomy of being 5’4, sweet and soft-spoken and her identity as a five-time Grammy Award-winning artist who’s sold more than 100 million records:

“My songs are normally about what’s going on in my life at the moment. I don’t need to keep a diary.”

Donna Summer Lithographs Art Gallery Goes Way Up After Singer’s Death
According to TMZ: Death = $$$ … at least when it comes to art … and a gallery in Vegas is proving the point, ’cause it immediately upped the price of Donna Summer pieces when she passed away.
The Jack Gallery in Las Vegas worked with Summer in 2003 to create limited edition lithographs … printing 750 hand-signed prints of 4 different art pieces (designed by Summer), which sold for $550 each BEFORE she lost her battle with cancer.
But days after the Disco Queen passed away earlier this month, the prices went up AT LEAST $100 a pop … with the cheap ones going for $650. Donna’s most popular piece — The Winter Melody — was raised from $550 to $1,000.

The gallery tells us that Summer’s work is in high demand since her death — Winter Melody is almost sold out — and her art is effecting people like never before. We’re told when one couple came in to admire the legendary singer’s art, they broke down and cried.
The gallery is currently planning a memorial exhibition for all the pieces that will go up in September at one of their Las Vegas locations.
When asked about the price increase, a rep for the store says it’s just the nature of the business … “Prices are determined by availability.”

Ciara Announces New Single & Album Title
Following a lengthy spell of silence and suspicion, R&B star Ciara has lifted the curtain on the title of her 5th studio album.
The moment, which also saw the singer gift the world the title of the project’s lead single too, came during an MTV press run today for new movie ‘That’s My Boy’ – the Adam Sandler comedy the 26 year old cameo’s in.
What are you waiting for? The goodies (cheesy we know)
In the event you didn’t get that, Ci’s revealed that her Epic Records debut has been christened:
‘One Woman Army’
…while the single is titled…
And there, folks, you have it!

The ‘One Woman Army’ “era” is officially underway. And by the sound of the praise we keep hearing heaped on the finished project from our trusty insiders, many will be saluting Ms. Harris very soon. I guess.

IRS Holding Sean Garrett’s Paychecks :Owes Uncle Sam Over $700,000
I guess when one owes the Government over $700k they have no choice but to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The government has orded BMI to hold all the money hip-hop producer Sean Garrett makes until they have been paid back in full. Garret, who’s been in the music industry since he was 17 years old and began successfully writing and producing in 2003.
And according to reports, Garrett owes the IRS $732,553.57, in back taxes. Sounds like a pretty piece of change, but with producing hits for artists like, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Usher, Teairra Marie, Mario, Ciara, and others, we’re confident he can bounce back financially.
No official word from Garrett or his camp, but he has been on twitter, sharing just how dope he and is work ethic are:
So tired of motherf*ckers thinking cause u fuck with a click yo music hot! That’s what got the game shot! Errbody sh*t sounding the same, and n*ggas think they poppin! 17 number 1′s is way different than having sh*t on the radio!!stop getting sh*t confused!! u can never outwork [me].

Alright-y then.

Tom Cruise’s “Raunchy Photos” with Women Set to Ruin Katie Holmes Marriage

“Raunchy photos” are set to destroy Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, according to the National Enquirer.
In a “bombshell world exclusive,” the tabloid describes racy pictures that will drive Holmes “wild with jealousy and tear the couple apart.”
The magazine’s cover screams about Cruise being “Half-Naked in Bed!” with another woman.
Where are these allegedly “ultra-steamy” photos? What’s Cruise doing in them? Who’s already seen them?
Um, we’re guessing everyone.
Yes, the pictures that have the Enquirer all hot, bothered and frantic about the future of Cruise and Holmes are from the stylized pictorial in W Magazine featuring the actor, in character as rocker Stacee Jaxx from Rock of Ages, cavorting with models Abbey Lee Kershaw and Edita Vilkeviciute.
Talk about an utterly shameless bit of bait-and-switch sensationalism.
The Enquirer, however, thinks the W pics are “sure to provoke a bitter battle” with Holmes.
“Katie will be devastated by the erotic and explicit nature of the pictures,” shrieks a so-called “close source,” later adding, “It’s certain to spark a shocking blowup between them!”

A blowup is “certain” — over totally innocuous photos that Cruise, Holmes and millions of others have known about for weeks?
The Enquirer goes on to pad its cover story with “marriage experts” chiming in about how horrified Holmes will be with the pictures and a comparison between Australian model Kershaw and Cruise’s ex-wife Nicole Kidman.
“Katie is sure to be jealous of Abbey Lee from the photo shoot,” a “source” tells the tabloid, adding, “It must be in the back of Katie’s mind that Tom might become smitten with his latest co-star.”
No she’s not.This is pure ridiculousness.
The Enquirer has been pumping out speculative nonsense about Cruise and Holmes since they got married.
Back in 2010 the magazine wrongly claimed the couple was “battling” over baby plans, and last spring Holmes was falsely said to be “at the end of her rope” and mulling divorce.
Meanwhile, year after year, Holmes and Cruise remain together and happy.
Sources say the latest Enquirer cover “bombshell” is “made up and completely false.”

Kevin Hart Gets A Dope Gift from Atlantic City Mayor, Keys to the City 
32-year-old comedian and actor Kevin Hart is having a helluva year. Over the Memorial Day weekend, was laced by Atlantic City’s Mayor with the keys to the city. 
The Philly comedian was actually in town to attend a Youth Explosion Event, in honor of The Boys and Girls Club in Atlantic City.
He had no clue that the city had planned to give him this honor and at the closure of the event, Alantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford and Councilman Marty Small announced that the day was “Kevin Hart Day”. Sweet surprise!

Country Singer Willie Nelson Smoked A Joint With President Jimmy Carter!
Will Nelson was on top of the white house smoking that Kush!!! Lol
When Willie Nelson visited the White House last December, it was just days after the singer’s arrest for possession of 6 ounces of pot. The 77-year-old singer, who is on the advisory board for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), has never bothered to hide his famous habit.

It had been 30 years since the first White House sleepover for the man who wrote ‘Crazy,’ ‘Night Life,’ ‘Hello Walls’ and many more of country music’s most enduring hits. In 1980, in the waning days of Jimmy Carter’s administration, the former peanut farmer from Georgia invited his old buddy to perform and stay at the White House. Nelson and Carter had grown friendly during the president’s 1976 election campaign, when the Texas native sang ‘Georgia on My Mind’ at several rallies for the candidate.
To relieve the stress of being the leader of the free world, Carter, an avid fly fisherman, sometimes retired to the presidential study to tie flies while listening to Willie on “the hi-fi,” as the former president recalled when the two appeared together on a CMT special in 2004.

In one of Willie Nelson’s books, he freely admits stealing away to the roof of the White House, where he lit up “a big fat Austin torpedo” while members of the Secret Service looked on. Apparently, it wasn’t the first time that particular law was broken at the White House: In 1977 — also on Carter’s watch — David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash are said to have burned a fatty of their own when they were left alone in the Oval Office.

“The Middle”
What I need to know is while you were in the store, what the hell happened to the middle part of your jeans? I mean, it has to be a crazy story because I refuse to believe anyone in the entire world would do that shit on purpose.


This Lil' Butch Queen ain't playin'. Now he's Outing EVERYBODY!

DeMario “Raz-B” Thornton New Tell All Book : Outing Chris Brown, Ray J, & Others
DeMario “Raz-B” Thornton from the early ‘00’s boyband B2k is set to release his memoirs in late fall.
WOW raz-B really got guts…
Titled “This Boy’s Life” and published through Corona Sky Production, Raz plans to discuss in detail the molestation he alleges he suffered from the hands of manager and Cousin Chris Stokes.
In 2007, Thornton made claims that he was molested by Stokes circa 2000-2004 and even uploaded video on YouTube where Stokes is recorded admitting to the molestation.
After receiving cash payment of $10,000, Raz-B went on video and refuted his initial claim.
In 2011, during the Eddie Long case, Raz-B returned with his claims but this time went into even more graphic detail about the abuse he received. At that time, according to his soon to be released book, World Star Hip Hop paid him $3,000 per video he released.
Each video had some “revelation” or secret about B2k and alleged molestation. Raz went on to claim IMX (formerly known as Immature) front man Marques Houston also molested him.

According to Raz B, Chris Brown, Ray J, and others are all outed in his new tell a book….Here’s excerpts, were Raz B hold’s nothing back(we do not know if this is truth, only letting you know whats on the net) and outs some of your favorite R&B hip hop singers.
Raz B talks about B2K:
“There were no girls; there were no breaks, and absolutely NO meat.
Our diet was so strict that I remember passing out during rehearsals because of our heavily restricted diet.”
Thornton goes on to say, “More important than the food was girls.
Girls were not allowed to even have our number.

Chris(Stokes) would say that girls were a distraction, but in reality, it was just for his own sexual desires.
“Chris was gay- he tried his best to hide his sexual appetite from his family, but we knew.
Chris would make us (members of B2k) go into rooms and have oral and sometimes anal sex.
He often time would take pictures of us engaging in sex acts.To this day, I think he still has those images.”
“Me and Boog (Jarell Houston, known as J. Boog) resisted the most. Fizz and Omari (Omarion) however seemed a lot easier to take advantage of. I suspect it was because Fizz was so much younger and Omari was just gay.”
Raz B talks about Ray J:
“Ray J was cool at first.
I was under the impression that he wanted to help me. But just like with Whitney (Houston) he was just looking for someone to use.
Ray J said that he was mad about how Chris did us and other artist, but Ray J just wanted airtime.”
He went on to say, “Ray J made a diss song about Chris being gay, but that’s the kettle calling the pot black.”
Raz B talks about Bow Wow:
“Bow Wow was younger than all of us, but the record company figured his affiliation with us (B2k) would be great.
I didn’t see it for myself but I was told by Fizz that Bow Wow and he got involved with each other. I didn’t put a lot of stock in it then.
It would be a few years until I realize that Fizz wasn’t lying.
In 2005 Bow Wow and Omari became “inseparable”. It wasn’t until rumors forced Bow Wow to end the relationships. The gay talk was hurting Bow Wow’s business.”

Raz B talks about Chris Brown:
“They say you never k
now who knows who. Chris Brown didn’t think about that when he attacked me online.
I have a friend that’s very close to Chris’ camp who told me that Chris was involved with an up and coming songwriter Andre Merritt.
So when Chris started going in calling people ‘gay’ and ‘fags’ I just dropped Andre Merritt’s name.
I knew it was true when he decided to shut up.”

Well Chris Brown fired back at Raz B for the gay accusations in his new tell-all book entitled “This Boys Life”. Raz B calls out Chris, Bow Wow, Ray J and others and accuses them of being undercover gay men.
C Breezy responded on twitter by saying:
Well Raz ends it like this:
This is about to get FIERCE and SHADY...STAY TUNED!
