After spending the day playing b-ball with her family and brother-in-law, Lamar Odom in Queens, Kim Kardashian threw on her fave leather pants and her Illusion Un Bout Louboutins and rushed back to Manhattan for dinner with Kanye at N62.  
After dinner, the paparazzi followed them home and as they were getting out of the vehicle; Kanye’s leather pants were down to his thigh. Upon their arrival back at his Soho apartment...the paps caught a glimpse of Kanye's pants or lack of--since homie forgot to pull them up.

When Kanye realized that he and Kim were not alone, he quickly struggled to get his pants up…….

Roman Reloaded femcee Nicki Minaj returned to Twitter just in time for the unveiling of her “Starships” music video. (Why, what a coincidence!) 

Wearing a hot pink bikini and rolling around in the surf, Nicki Minaj filmed the music video for her single, “Starship” in Oahu, Hawaii back on March 14th.

“I don’t mind the fascination. It’s all good,” Minaj told DJ Funkmast Flex recently of her curves.  ”But I’ve said this before, it doesn’t define me. So, I try my best not to focus my energy on it."

“Like, if you guys focus energy on and spend energy on it, I don’t mind it. You know, people are sitting in the barbershop talking about my butt, it’s conversational. That’s what people are gonna do. As long as they’re talking about Nicki Minaj, I’m good."

NEW MUSIC: Brandy Ft. Chris Brown – ‘Put It Down’

It is finally here!

After 4 long years, Brandy has unwrapped her comeback single ‘Put It Down’. And she’s not alone. For, label-mate Chris Brown joins her on the first cut to be lifted from her eagerly anticipated ’2/11′ LP.


On last nights VH1's "Behind the Music ", a teary-eyed Brandy finally opens up about one of the most devastating incidents in her life.

"I would hear what people would say, and still to this day they know that that's a button," Brandy says. "They know that they can call me a murderer or call me someone that killed someone. They know that is a button for me. A murderer is someone who premeditates it. I didn't wake up that day to be involved in a fatal car crash. I didn't plan for that. And if I could take it back, I would."

In December 2006, the singer was involved in a fatal car accident in California resulting in the death of Awatif Aboudihaj. The Los Angeles city attorney's office ultimately concluded that there was "insufficient evidence" to convict Brandy of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter after a series of investigations and being hit witha $50 million lawsuit.

Brandy expands on dealing with the aftermath of the tragedy on "Behind the Music".

" I just wanted people to know that this wasn't news. It's not something that should be talked about like it's gossip. You don't like me? Fine. But don't use this situation to try to hurt me, because the guilt of being involved is enough. It's something that I'll never truly, truly get over. Ever," she explains.

Check out the full episode of "Behind the Music," starring Brandy.

Remembering Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes

In an era when being as bold as you wanna be can be good for business, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, one-rebellious-third of the iconic girl group TLC, might not have seemed like an anomaly among the Rihannas, Katys and Britneys.

 But back in the early 1990s, you were bound to arch a few eyebrows if your thing was to rock condoms as eye patches and spit verses like, "If I need it in the morning or the middle of the night, I ain't too proud to beg." 

Philadelphia-born, Lisa was just barely out of her teens in 1991, when she joined a trio under the direction of manager Perri "Pebbles" Reid, an R&B singer herself and then-wife of LaFace Records co-founder Antonio "LA" Reid. Left Eye, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas would release their debut album, Ooooooohhh ... On the TLC Tip, the following year.

With ups and downs along the way...April 25, 2002, Lisa Lopes was tragically lost in an automobile accident in Honduras, just a few weeks shy of her 31st birthday while filming a documentary. At the time, Lopes had been working with David Bowie on a solo project under the psuedonym N.I.N.A. Her charitable organization, the Lisa Lopes Foundation, continues to support youth from low income communities and diverse cultural backgrounds.

As we celibrate her legacy take a look at her talent in action in her last music video 'Block Party'

CURRENT EVENTS: Jennifer Hudson Family Murder Trial Begins

Jennifer Hudson took the stand for nearly an hour this afternoon as the first witness in the Chicago trial of the man charged with killing her mother, brother and nephew. 

Jennifer Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, 57, was the first person killed when William Balfour allegedly entered her home on Oct. 24, 2008.
Jennifer Hudson's nephew, Julian King, was just 7 years old when he was killed allegedly by his estranged stepfather William Balfour.
King, nicknamed Juicebox, was found in the back of his uncle's SUV. He had been shot in the back of his head.

"None of us wanted her to marry him," Hudson said of her sister's marriage to defendant William Balfour, her voice cracking with emotion. "We did not like how he treated her... I tried to keep my distance from William."
Crying on the stand at one point, Hudson, who has vowed to attend every day of the trial, paused for a few seconds to compose herself. 

The award-winning actress and singer choked up when asked about her relationship with her mother, saying, "I slept with my mom until I was 16 years old." 

Hudson also testified she would sign blank checks and leave them for her mother, so that she could pay the household bills. 

Balfour, 30, is facing three counts of first-degree murder for killing three members of Jennifer Hudson's family including her mother Darnell Donerson, 57, her brother Jason Hudson, 29, and 7-year-old nephew Julian King, who was also Balfour's stepson. Balfour was estranged from Jennifer's sister, Julia Hudson at the time of the killings.

Hudson, 30, described the last time she saw her mother, a few days before the killings in the family home. She said she remembered it vividly because it was one of the few times that the entire family came over to share a meal. "Thank God I got that," she testified. 

Hudson's voice cracked with emotion almost every time she spoke about her mother. At one point a deputy brought her a box of tissues and a cup of water. 

Hudson testified that she knew something was wrong on the day of the killings in 2008 because her mother didn't text her that morning as she usually did by 9 a.m.[READ MORE]
