GOSSIP: Chris Brown & Frank Ocean TWITTER Beef!!!

Another week equals another Twitter tantrum thrown. Last week Rihanna went on a verbal tirade against a fan and this week was Chris Brown’s turn. Yesterday, the ‘F.A.M.E.’ singer traded jabs with Tyler the Creator of Odd Future and ‘Novocaine’ singer, Frank Ocean.

In Breezy’s defense, the tweet that started it all was a compliment Brown paid to Ocean saying,“I fuck wit Frank Ocean! Reminds me of a young James Fauntleroy or Kevin Cossum.” Clearly it was seen as a diss by Ocean who replied, “i fucks wit chris brown, reminds me of a young sisqo or ike turner,” Ocean went on to say, “i just dont like underhanded comments. thats all im saying.”

That’s all that was needed to ignite Brown’s short fuse. Should Chris be going back to anger management classes?!?! I never understood this whole twitter beef thing. Between Rihanna & Chris Brown maybe these slight anger issues played a part in why the two could not keep their relationship solid. Watch the shameful drama unravel below.

Tyler the Creator, who was also in on the beef, goes back and forth with Brown as well:

 It’s official- Actress Nia Long and former NBA forward Ime Udoka are expecting their first child later this fall.

In a recent interview with People magazine the happy couple gushed,

    “This is the most exciting time in our lives. Words can’t explain how thrilled we are by the new addition to our family. We feel truly blessed and appreciate all the well wishes and prayers.”

Forty year old Long has an extensive back ground in the movie industry, having starred in a myriad of films including, Boiler Room (one of my personal favorites), Friday, and Are We There Yet.

Check out Maxwell in his entirety as the soul singer takes fans through several of his hits, while revealing the inspiration behind his music. The show, which he performed for an intimate crowd of 150 people in New York City back in May, finds the Grammy-winner rolling through fan favorites from 'Sumthin' Sumthin'' to 'Fist Full of Tears.'

The 38-year-old beamed with pride for being asked to record an episode of the show, whose past performers have included Sting, Elton John and Kanye West. "You have this dream as a kid and the next thing you know you're at 'VH1 Storytellers' and the crowd is singing along to your songs," he told the audience. "It's a blessing."

Since releasing his debut, 'Urban Hang Suite,' more than a decade ago, the Brooklyn native has sold over three million records worldwide. His most recent album, the critically acclaimed 'BLACKsummers'night,' which dropped in 2009, earned him two Grammy Awards at this year's ceremony.

Busta Ryhmes Celebrates His Birthday With Drake at Greenhouse, New York City [PHOTOS]

Greenhouse Nightclub in New York City was packed with celebrities and socialites for Busta Ryhmes‘ birthday party on June 16. The Thursday night soiree featured guest Drake, DJ Kid Capri, and more.

GOSSIP: NICKI MINAJ receives Bad Reviews for opening night of Britney's 'FEMME FATALE' Tour

According to Rolling Stone, Minaj’s own set lacked Spears’s budget or sharp choreography. Instead, the rapper tottered around on lime green platform shoes that threatened to tip her balance. Although she’s styled as a dance-pop diva, Minaj did little dancing — or singing, or even live rapping. Like Spears, much of her vocals were clearly prerecorded, which got a little too obvious during "Monster." Obviously she doesn’t have Kanye West with her, but throughout even her part in the song she sat nearly immobile, not bothering to hold a mike or move her lips.

Minaj clearly has stage presence, and the fact that fans cheered through abbreviated versions of her hits means that she’s doing something right by just showing up. But as a showcase for her considerable talents, her Thursday night performance lacked the commitment of her records. Surely the wild woman of "Did It On’em" can do better.

According to a Facebook post made on June 11, 2011, Minaj will not be touring with Spears outside of the USA. She later made another Facebook post to correct herself and say that she will not be touring with Spears outside of the USA and Canada.  

Britney Spears' 'Femme Fatale' Tour Kickoff [PHOTOS]

Britney Spears is a dozen years into her career, and yet the kickoff of her Femme Fatale tour at the Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento last night managed to propel her forward.

She's wisely focusing on the present – she sang nine songs from her latest album Femme Fatale and snagged Nicki Minaj as her opening act – while offering possibly her flashiest, fastest moving, and most entertaining production yet. 

Taking her entrance atop a moving platform in the first of many skimpy and sparkling Barbarella-esque outfits, Spears kicked off her performance with "Hold It Against Me."

SNEAK PEEK: Maxwell "Fistful of Tears" [VH1 Storytellers]

“‘Fistful of Tears’ was definitely inspired by the war,” Maxwell told the audience. “I hate the fact that we’re fighting. I can’t wait for the troops to come back. The fact that we’re fighting a religious war is crazy to me. I mean everyone should believe in whatever they want to believe in, just don’t mess with me.”

VH1 offers a sneak peek at the intimate show, which airs Friday at 11 p.m. EST/PST. Watch more below and make sure to tune in tomorrow for the premiere.

FASHION: Beyoncé’s Pulse Fragrance Ad

Beyoncé‘s latest fragrance, Pulse, hits stores in September, and the sexy, just-released ad already has our pulses beating faster. The seductive scent — a follow-up to the singer’s perfumes Heat and Heat Rush — features notes of pear blossom, peony, midnight blooming jasmine, Madagascar vanilla and for the first time in a fragrance, bluebird orchid.

“Pulse is a fragrance you can wear all the time,” Beyoncé tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I love the idea of a signature scent that lets a woman leave her mark wherever she goes, so I always try to make my scents appropriate for any occasion.”

The fragrance comes in an upside-down chrome-and-blue bottle, neatly tucked into a holographic carton. The bottle’s topper, a chrome cap, was inspired by her stage costumes.


She gave a brief preview to fans tonight on 'So You Think You Can Dance' Results Show.

GOSSIP: Beyonce Plans to Sell "4" album for .49 Cents

Word on the street is Beyonce's marketing team is rushing to cut last minute deals with either iTunes or Amazon to sell Beyonce's "4" album for a mere .49 cents. Using the same strategy as Lady Gaga, who sold 400k records for .99 cents on Amazon, Beyonce is looking to go platinum despite her album being leaked a week ago. 

GOSSIP: LIL MAMA says Nicki Minaj Swagger jacked her?!?!?!

VIBE hopped on the jack with Mama to dish on why you should stop hating on her new futuristic style, her next music moves and still not getting enough love from female rappers.

Check out a few excerpts from the interview below!!

Interesting thing is that leftfield style is actually becoming more of the norm. How do you react to folks saying your biting Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga? Come on, let's be real okay. You have all these people wearing different colored hair. At the end of the day I'm a bombshell, so I'm going to do me. If I want to go platinum, I'm going platinum. Let's not forget that we have had people doing these things way before the people who are doing it now and let's also not forget that the black community sometimes we really hang ourselves because every time another black female gets up there and does something that may be current, we criticize each other and try to put each other down, but when Katy Perry and Lady Gaga do it, they all eat. But I'm not going to be a part of that. I'm going to do me, regardless.

Very valid point… I think the biggest style criticism was thrown at you this past MTV Movie Awards. Bunch of people thought you jacked Nicki’s haircut.But my cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am. I'm a trendsetter. The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I'm flattered. I understand the universal law. I'm not confused, I don't feel like a follower. I started so many things that new artists are doing now anyway –my style, the way I'm aggressive on a track, the way I come through, the way my beat bangs. There are so many things that were borrowed, that I influenced that's happening in music right, so I'm far from discouraged.

Well there you go. Wait, Nicki through to one went to one of your shows?Yeah, she was a guest on America's Best Dance Crew and immediately afterwards, everywhere she went, she was wearing the haircut, the same exact way. But that doesn't make me feel like ‘Oh she's trying to be down’ like how I said about our culture. I'm actually flattered because she imitated me and it felt like something that I was doing was cute and in time for the fashion and for the season, so it's like let's live, let's do it.

When I first interviewed you back in the day, you mentioned how other female rappers didn’t embrace you much. Has that changed or stayed the same?It hasn't really changed. You know what, let me catch myself. MC Lyte definitely embraces me. Jada Pinkett Smith embraces me. Those are two people that I can call and get advice. Those are two people that will call me to see what I'm doing. I think that everybody else that's still on the radar like Missy and [Lil] Kim, feel so challenged right now. The root of female rap now is all about your swag and doing things independently. Everything is just boosted up to where these females who created the platform for us feel imitated. The kind of in that position right now where they feel like ‘Don't get it twisted because I will drag you…’

Ha! Were you and Nicki at least able to chop it up after her episode of ABDC?We didn't really get a chance to vibe out like that after the show. It was just business. It was a level of respect though. Despite of what anybody might hear or have to say through the web, internet, music, subliminals, or whatever, when people see me in this industry I am respected and I will be respected. Anything else goes under the rug so I don't see it. Whoever it may be, it's always a level of respect because I respect myself and I will be respected.

Word. I know your thing back in the day was being very mindful of your younger fans. Should we expect to hear some 21+ lyrics now?I guess my sound has changed a little bit; I'm evolving. Lauryn Hill might have cursed a couple of times in her music and Missy Elliot definitely just doesn't care. I'm really more inspired by their creativity more so than just the cursing. I’m really impressed by clean music. I have a thing for it, but if I have to go there, I think I'm going to go there. It has to be something that you want to do. It can't be peer pressure. You have to be yourself… and that’s what I do best. 

Interesting to say the least. Let's see where this 'BEEF' goes...

NEW MUSIC: Hamilton Park - 'Thing Called Us' [Audio]

In the 1990’s America got its first taste of down-home R&B with groups like 112, H-Town, and Jagged Edge that featured youthful soul singing placed over rhythms that made you move.
The New Generation of that tradition is “HAMILTON PARK”! They are four guys from the peach state that honed their harmonizing skills and developed chemistry by singing in church, on Marta trains and buses around the City of Atlanta looking to be discovered.

The group’s vocal texture and ability is reminiscent of a period in music when the artist had to have Showmanship, Great Songs, Real Vocals and be more than just Handsome Faces. Their songs are infectious expressions of youth that you can feel that’s often abandoned in today's disposable pop environment.
