So what I’ve learned is that just because you rap it, it doesn’t make it real. It seems we all could learn a lot from the illustrious Kanye West.
In Kanye’s song Cold he raps, “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” Of course, he is referring to his best buddy Jay-Z having girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband kicked off the New Jersey Brooklyn Nets.
Today, after scoring a $24 million contract with the team, Kris Humphriestweeted, I’m up at Brooklyn! @ S_C_ ‘lucky I didn’t have Jay drop me from the team’ lol!” TMZ reports that it is a two year contract with a pretty significant raise, given that his prior contract was for a year at $8 million. Maybe Beyonce is in her team-owner hubby’s ear a little more than his rapping partner in crime…
It seems like it’s finally happening for Kimmy Kakes. She has arrived. After months of trying, she is friends with Beyonce…or Bey as I’m sure Kimmie calls her. Beyonce has broken down and now actually likes Kim. I guess you could say she (metaphorically) put a ring on it. She likes her. She really, really likes her.
The duo was spotted this weekend watching their loves perform their Watch the Throne concert in Birmingham, England. The girls even, according to an US Weeklysource, venturing into the mosh pit. All this friendliness is new for the ladies. While Kim’s boyfriend Kanye West and Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z are close friends, Kim has allegedly been getting the cold shoulder from Beyonce for a while. An insider recently told The Sun, “The girls have never really seen eye-to-eye. It’s a shame because Jay-Z and Kanye are so close. Beyonce has always viewed Kim as a reality TV star who’s not earned her fortune with a specific talent.”
It seemed like everyone on the East Coast this weekend dedicated their Memorial Day to grilling meats and seeing Beyonce in Atlantic City. Kim Kardashian, never one to shy from a bikini photo op, made it in, to make a few dollars at a random hotel pool, and also actually saw the concert. She used her Kanye West connection and got backstage and hung out with the queen.
Some random PR person from the Kardashian camp, aka a random ‘source’ tells US Weekly that the girls get along just fine: “Kim thought it was such a great show. “There’s always some random rumors there is tension between them and there totally isn’t! Kim had so much fun.”
Just one week before the finals, the 20-year-old Wheeling, Illinois native was voted off the show leaving teen singers Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina to battle it out in next week’s finale. Haley’s elimination also ensures a country artist will win this year.
After taking a nasty fall during one of her final performances on Wednesday, Hailey still managed to give great performances, even receiving praises from judges Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and guest mentor Beyonce.
Haley is however taking her elimination in stride. “This is the biggest platform anybody can ask for and I rocked it out and had a blast,” said Haley after being voted off. “It’s only the beginning,” she added. The raspy-voiced singer bid farewell with a performance of Elton John’s “Bennie and the Jets.”
And not only are Scotty, 17, and Lauren, 16, both country artists but they also become the youngest finalists in the history of American Idol!
Also, a record 95 million votes were cast this week, over 15 million more than the previous season. The finale airs next week Tuesday and a new winner will be crowned next Wednesday, so the obvious question is…

It seems Kim Kardashiancontinues to follow in the footsteps of her former BFF Paris Hilton. First came the sex tape, then the reality show, then the whole being insanely famous for nothing, and now an attempt to legitimize that fame by trying to sing.
According to TMZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been hitting the studio with top notch writer/producer/performer The-Dream. And yes, this is the same Dream that is responsible for major hits such as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”
The important question now is can Kimmy sing? A “source” tells TMZ that “Kim’s got a really good voice.”
Above is a photo of Kim, 30, who according to her, hasn’t had any work done on her face other than botox. Kim attended Heidi Klum’s 2010 Halloween party as Little Red Riding Hood.

There seems to be something about having cameras around that makes certain people just want to make absolute asses fools of themselves. Case in point, Countess LuAnn De Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York City, has decided to give Kim Zolciak some competition. For some reason, LuAnn has decided to embark on a music career despite being completely tone deaf and lacking any musical talent.
LuAnn’s first single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” hit the internet yesterday and in a new interview with PEOPLE today, LuAnn reveals she is shooting a music video for her song. A photo from her video shoot is below.
According to LuAnn, she is simply “trying to bring manners — and disco — back.” She tells PEOPLE. “When I made the song, I had dancing in Saint-Tropez in mind.”
And what does she think of the preview video Bravo has released showing her singing very off key? “I think [Bravo VP] Andy Cohen was mean to show a clip of me singing off key, but I’m a reality star; I don’t have the luxury that Beyoncé does to not show that footage.” Right LuAnn, because we’re all certain Beyonce sounds a lot like you in the studio and requires autotune to sound decent on a record.
Listen to “Money Can’t Buy You Class”
In the video, which has yet to be released, LuAnn can be seen rocking long hair (thanks to extensions) for the first time in 20 years. “There’s not really dancing,” she says of the video. “I just have very good looking men standing around. And it’s about how money can’t buy you class, so I’m taking money out of their pockets and throwing it onto the floor.”
And we haven’t heard the last of LuAnn, her next single, “Chic, c’est la vie,” is set to be released in early May.
