However, the title of the piece suggests that Rihanna addresses her sexting picture leaks, controversy over her video for "S&M", and why she likes bad boys, among other things.

Ice Cube Signs On To Endorse Coors Light Beer



Well from this standpoint we all can see that when it comes to alcholic beverages Ice Cube steps in ans shows everyone that he can endorse too. Now that Diddy is tied in with Ciroc, Snoop Dogg recently began endorsing Blast By Colt 45, Pitbull has become owner of Voli vodka, and now, Ice Cube is joining the party.
The west coast rap legend has reportedly signed on to endorse Coors Light beer. He will appear in ads put together by Commonground, a Chicago-based multi-cultural agency, where he will battle Coors Light bottles in a stare down to see who is colder.
According to Advertising Age, the ads hope to successfully increase crossover appeal of the brand, which may not be so far-fetched judging by the "spirited reaction" it received when presented to a test audience of distributors.
Their main goal is to dethrone Anheuser-Busch's Budweiser this year as the nation's best-selling beer, and it's already close, according to the report.
"Budweiser is going down, baby," MillerCoors Chief Marketing Officer Andy England told AdAge.com.
"Coors Light once again is the shining knight in silver armor so far in 2011," added Harry Schumacher, editor ofBeer Business Daily. "If Coors Light continues this trajectory, expect it to surpass Budweiser this year as the No. 2 beer brand."
Cube previously endorsed St. Ides malt liquor in the late '80s in a large poster campaign, paving the way for the likes of hip-hop endorsers Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur, who both appeared in advertisements for the drink.
At press time, it was unclear when the Ice Cube Coors Light ad campaigns would begin running.

Mathew Knowles No Longer Managing Beyonce


Beyonce has announced that she and her father Mathew Knowles will part ways professionally. Mathew will no longer be taking on duties as her manager. Beyonce released a statement to the Associated Press, stating the two will part ways on a professional level. Beyonce added “He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly.”
I wonder if this has anything to do with Mathew cheating on Tina? Matthew has managed Beyonce since the start of her career. He has basically built her entire brand.
Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams had separated from Matthew years back while pursuing solo careers. Beyonce is currently working on her fourth album and hasn’t announced a new management. I bet she signs on with Jay-Z’s Roc-Nation.

Lil Wayne Wants To Bank $50 Million In 2011


Lil Wayne is hip-hop superstar, and arguably the hottest rapper in the game at the present time. But, there's one list he doesn't even rank on -- Forbes' "Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artists".
While his boss Birdman (Cash Money Records founder) is worth a cool $100 million, Weezy isn't exactly broke ... and in 2011, he wants to deposit a large amount into the bank.
In an interview with Interview magazine, the New Orleans rapper explained.
"I want to bank a cool $50 million, at least," Weezy told the mag. "At the end of this year, I want to be able to say that I banked $50 million. Not generated $50 million, but actually banked $50 million."
If that's his goal, he's hard at work on making it come to fruition. The rapper has been treking across country on his anticipated "I Am Music II" tour, alongside protege Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, and Travis Barker. And also prepping the release of his long-awaited Tha Carter IV. If it's as successful as Part III, he could possibly reach his goal.
According to Forbes, Wayne took in $20 million in 2010, ranking #74 on the magazine's "Celebrity 100" list of the richest entertainers.

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes At World Premiere Of The Kennedys How Katie Transformed Into Jackie O

  

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes walked the red carpet in Beverly Hills, CA. Monday night for the world premiere of the controversial miniseries The Kennedys, and to mark Kate's turn as the iconic First Lady, With her bobbed brown hair, pearls, pill box hat and proper attire, the former Dawnson's Creek star bares a striking resemblance to the one and only Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, who she is playing in the TV miniseries, The Kennedys.
But ditching her jeans and gym wear in favour of the ladylike wardrobe of the President's wife, wasn't the tough part for Katie, who admits taking on the character was the most intimidating part.
"It's been amazing and a little overwhelming because she is such an icon and so important to our country and so many people have fun memories of her," she said. "In doing the research, I learned so much about her and my adoration for her only grew, so it's been really fun. It's always great to play a character that you love."
Katie has been snapped on the set of the miniseries - in which she stars alongside Greg Kinnear - in an abundance of clothing imitating the first lady's favorites.
But possibly the most shocking promotional picture is the image of her wearing the hot pink suit, identical to the one she wore when John F. Kennedy was shot.
Mrs. Tom Cruise isn't the only brown eyed beauty to play Jackie O however. RadarOnline.com also has photos of some of the other impressive transformations.
Blair Brown starred alongside Martin Sheen in the 1983 production of Kennedy, Roma Downey depicted her in the 1991 TV mini-series A Woman Named Jackie and Brit Joanne Whalley starred in the Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onasis: A Life in 2000.
Even Sarah Michelle Gellar played her, but as a teenager in the 1991 series A Woman Named Jackie and Jeanne Tripplehorn pulled off the hot head scarf and oversized sunglasses to play her in the documentary, Grey Gardens.
Holmes' controversial miniseries -- which was originally scheduled to air on The History Channel -- is set to screen now on the Reelz Channel in May.


Lil Wayne Renews His Love For New York At Long Island Shows

  


It's been roughly two weeks since Lil Wayne returned to the big stage with his I Am Still Music Tour. He's been tearing up venues across the country in the days that followed, but there was something sentimental about his two nights of sold-out shows at Long Island's Nassau Coliseum.  
After all, just a few months ago, a little more than 20 miles away, Wayne was doing hard time at Rikers Island, serving a one-year prison sentence on weapons charges stemming from the 2007 arrest that followed his show at New York's Beacon Theatre. On Monday night, Wayne exchanged the 8-foot cell he was housed in at the Eric M. Taylor Center for a hockey arena and thanked fans for their support during his down time.

"A few months ago, I was stuck in this island," Wayne told to the audience. "This place called Rikers Island. It was people like Drake and people like y'all who made me feel like I was in a paradise of love. Shout out to the COs I'm cool with, but tell the warden to kiss my ass."
But in reality, Weezy showed no signs of bitterness towards the state he unwillingly called home for the majority of 2010. The larger-than-life MC appeared on stage sporting a blue and orange New York Knicks cap, his signature polo shirt and black leather pants.
Wayne closed out his New York run backed by a live band, unearthing a catalog of smash hits including "Mrs. Officer," "Go DJ" and "Got Money" as well as mixtape cuts such as "I'm Single" and "Bill Gates." With appearances by Lil Twist, Mack Maine, Shanell and Nicki Minaj, Weezy continued to make the point that his Young Money movement was reminiscent of previous rap powerhouse cliques who made their marks in the hip-hop game.
"Remember how Diddy had his artists? And Jay had Roc-a-fella, and Baby had all his artists?" Wayne asked. "Well, I have all my artists."
Halfway through his set, Wayne introduced Minaj, and the Queens MC ripped through her own records for her hometown crowd. Nicki ignited the audience with hits "Roman's Revenge" to "Did It on 'Em" to the celebratory "Right Through Me" anthem, for which she donned a wedding dress. And as she assisted Wayne on "Roger That" he appeared to be stunned by Nicki's tight, ripped-up jeans.
"Make some noise for the best rapper aliiive," Nicki yelled at the crowd, referring to Wayne as she exited the stage. "Make some noise for them pants!" Wayne shot back.
Preceeding Wayne's set, Rick Ross also ignited the coliseum with his array of hits and a surprise guest appearance by close friend DJ Khaled, who joined him for "We Takin' Over." Khaled also showed his New York support wearing a New York Yankees clubhouse jacket.
The show had emotional moments in between songs too. Wayne took time to send prayers for earthquake victims in Japan and acknowledged members of the military in the audience who came out to support the MC in their uniforms.
"We got a couple soldiers in here; make some noise for these men," Wayne said, removing his tinted shades as the house lights spotlighted the warriors.
On the night of his arrest years ago, Weezy vowed to never return to the Big Apple. But judging by the diamond-studded grin he flashed throughout the night as the crowd chanted "Weezy's Home," it's a safe assumption that the MC was happy to be back in New York.
"New York always showed us love," said Birdman, sitting in his tour bus following the show. "It was just unfortunate he had to come out here and do time. But the people always showed us mad love. New York is probably one of our biggest markets. They always supported us, and we always showed them love."

Over $11 Million In Claims Filed In Young Buck Bankruptcy Case

  


In addition to Young Buck‘s tax problems, the rapper is now being sued by his record label, G-Unit Records for $10 million.  The label filed the claim in Buck’s bankruptcy case in the event that he breaches his contract.
A claim was also filed for $171,000 relating to a $300,000 loan from 50 Cent in 2005.
A total of 14 claims have been filed against Young Buck totalling over $11 million.
Young Buck’s lawyer, Robin Mitchell Joyce, says that Buck’s largest problem was that he was unaware of many of the business deals he was involved in.
“One of the biggest problems with Buck’s situation is not only that it’s so complex, but also that he didn’t understand it,” Joyce said. “The money went in and the money went out and Buck’s universe of knowledge about his financial state is a balance on an ATM receipt. … Buck never knew at one point, at several points, that he was a millionaire.”

Trouble in Paradise! Bradley Cooper & Renee Zellweger Split

  

Bradley Cooper and Bridget Jones actress Renee Zellweger have split. The couple, who had been together almost two years, have not commented on the surprising news and reps remain silent on multiple reports detailing the major trouble in paradise.
Multiple sources have told UsMagazine Cooper and Zellweger’s romance is officially over, following photos which emerged that would reportedly ‘break’ Zellweger’s heart.
Star Magazine revealed how Cooper had betrayed Zellweger by sneaking around with other women, including Hollywood darling Sandra Bullock and Justin Timberlake’s ex-girlfriend Jessica Biel.
In one photograph, Biel and Cooper were snapped sharing an intimate moment on the Los Angeles set of their new film New Year’s Eve on February 26, during a break from filming.
Reps for Cooper and Zellweger did return RadarOnline.com’s request for comment on Friday, hot on the heels of the most recent break-up report.
Earlier this week, the leading man was quiet on his romance with Zellweger when shock jock Howard Sternquizzed him on his show.
“I’m not going to talk about that,” Bradley told Howard, when asked about Zellweger.
“I just don’t talk about it… certain things are just — you understand that.”
The notorious shy couple made few outings together but were spotted on a rare outing last October, attending the CAA Young Hollywood Party at Los Angeles hotspot MyHouse.
They haven’t been seen together since leaving a hotel in downtown New York City, where they had stayed; they left in separate cars, as these photos show.

US begins assault against Libyan air defenses

  


The U.S. military attacked Moammar Gadhafi's air defenses Saturday with strikes along the Libyan coast that were launched by Navy vessels in the Mediterranean.
A senior military official said the assault would unfold in stages and target air defense installations around Tripoli, the capital, and a coastal area south of Benghazi. That's the rebel stronghold under attack by Moammar Gadhafi's forces.
Complete details were not immediately available.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss sensitive military operations.
Hours after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton attended an international conference in Paris that endorsed military action against Gadhafi, the U.S. kicked off its attacks on Libyan air defense missile and radar sites along the Mediterranean coast to protect no-fly zone pilots from the threat of getting shot down.
A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to discuss sensitive military operations, said the Obama administration intended to limit its involvement — at least in the initial stages — to helping protect French and other air missions.
At a news conference in Paris, Clinton said Gadhafi had left the world no choice but to intervene urgently and forcefully to protect further loss of civilian life.
"We have every reason to fear that left unchecked Gadhafi would commit unspeakable atrocities," she told reporters.
Clinton said there was no evidence that Gadhafi's forces were respecting an alleged cease-fire they proclaimed and the time for action was now.
"Our assessment is that the aggressive action by Gadhafi's forces continues in many parts of the country," she said. "We have seen no real effort on the part of the Gadhafi forces to abide by a cease-fire."
President Barack Obama announced on Friday that he had given the go-ahead for U.S. forces to participate in operations designed to enforce the provisions of a U.N. Security Council resolution demanding that Gadhafi cease firing on civilians. At the outset of a visit to Brazil on Saturday, he spoke briefly about Libya, noting the Paris talks.
"Our consensus was strong and our resolve is clear," Obama said. "The people of Libya must be protected and in the absence of an immediate end to the violence against civilians our coalition is prepared to act and to act with urgency."
Among the U.S. Navy ships in the Mediterranean were two guided-missile destroyers, the USS Barry and USS Stout, as well as two amphibious warships, the USS Kearsarge and USS Ponce, and a command-and-control ship, the USS Mount Whitney. The submarine USS Providence was also in the Mediterranean.


Serena Williams Opens Up About Depression

  




The tennis champ has been off the courts since winning Wimbeldon in July; shortly after she cut her foot on a piece of glass and had to go through two surgeries. "I definitely have not been happy," Serena Williams told USA Today. "Especially when I had that second surgery (on my foot), I was definitely depressed. I cried all the time. I was miserable to be around."
In addition to her foot injury and surgeries, Williams was hospitalized with a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the lungs) in February of 2011. She then underwent surgery for a large hematoma in her stomach late last month.
Despite her recent health concerns, Williams has hopes she’ll return to the game eventually. "I don't know what's realistic," said Williams. "I really don't know. I haven't put a date on it yet. I know how to play tennis. I've been doing it for a long time—longer than I can say. So I figure that will work out.”


Meagan Good Chats About Her Upcoming Projects

   


Meagan GoodTasha Smith, and newcomer Ty Hodges made an independent film called Miles From Home, about a homeless teen that falls into the world of drugs, violence, and prostitution on the street. It took five years, but the movie is finally coming out on DVD April 15, which was cause for celebration at a Hollywood party at Supperclub on Tuesday night.
“You could say it’s a Black art house film,” begins Good, a producer on the movie. “How do we market it? We waited and waited and finally decided to do it ourselves. It’s not only a labor of love, but it’s important. The story talks about a lot of things that are going on right now.”
Good is equally excited about her next movie Jumping the Broom, which comes out May 6 and casts her as Blythe, best friend to Paula Patton’s bride, Sabrina. “I’m a character who doesn’t believe in love, but then I find that maybe I’m wrong.  Maybe I need to approach love in a different way,” she says. Does a man cause that change of heart? “Maybe,” she added with a coy smile.
She has great memories of the shoot in Nova Scotia, except for one thing: Mosquitoes. “They were chasing us like it was The Birds or something,” Good recalls, referencing the Hitchcock horror flick.
She has two more independent films due out later this year. “In 35 and Ticking, my character is a young, unassuming girl looking for what she’s going to do with her career, and she ends up falling for Kevin Hart’s character, who turns out not to be who he says he is. It’s about their love affair as they try to work it out.”
The comedy Dysfunctional Friends “is about a young millionaire who passes away and leaves his money to all of his friends who have to stay in his mansion for a week and none of them get along. But they have to figure it out to get the inheritance.”  The ensemble cast includes Stacey DashPersia WhiteTatyana AliTerrell Owens,Hosea Chanchez and Essence Atkins.
Good will also reteam with Ty Hodges in Video Girl, about a video vixen.


Wesley Snipes Denied Bond Pending Appeal

   


Wesley Snipes had better start making friends in prison because it looks like he’s going to be there a while!
The 48-year-old actor filed a motion on January 28 in the United States Court of Appeals For The Eleventh Circuit requesting bond while his petition for certiorari is pending before the United States Supreme Court – on Friday, his request was denied the judges’ order.
Circuit Judges Edmonson, Marcus and Pryor denied Snipes request for bond citing “it is outside of the scope of this appeal.”
In addition, the Circuit Judges also denied his move for bond pending his appeal from the denial of his motion for a new trial, stating that the actor “has failed to demonstrate that he qualifies for such relief.”
Earlier this year, the actor’s lawyers filed a petition asking the US Supreme Court to examine claims that he was wrongly tried and that prosecutors should have met a higher standard of proof.
In December, Snipes began serving a three-year prison sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution McKean in Pennsylvania for failure to file income tax returns.
Snipes was convicted in 2008 on three misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file income tax returns.
He filed several last minute appeals in an attempt to delay his incarceration but they were all denied.


Chris Brown Calls Nude-Photo Leak 'Disappointing'

  


Even with full-frontal snaps of him circulating on the Net, Chris Brown wants everyone to know that, like a certain fired sitcom star, he's still ... winning!

Earlier this month, a newly blond C.Breezy was preparing for the promotional run of his March 22 release,F.A.M.E., when photographs of the heavily tatted pop&B singer — completely in the buff and facing an oblong mirror with phone in hand — leaked to the Internet. Brown quickly took to Twitter, where he unleashed a salty post before removing it: "WTF!!! Here we go!!!"
On Friday (March 18), Chris stopped by MTV News for a sit-down and he explained what really got him hot under the collar about the incident.
"Let me be honest with you. I didn't want to put no pictures out; that's not my intention. A lot of people were saying, 'Yo, he leaked the pictures, he was trying to get promotion,' " the "Deuces" singer said. "For me, I was always a singer, so unless I'm planning on trying to do porn, I don't think I'd want to just leak my wang out to the world before my album comes out."
While leaking photos might be the go-to for celebutantes and wannbe stars famished for fame, Chris was bothered that critics would accuse him of deliberately passing along provocative pictures for publicity's sake.
"It was disappointing to me that it was out, because I was like, 'Man, now it's gonna [look like] a gimmick behind it,' " he said of the pre-release push for his album. "And I don't want a gimmick behind anything that I'm doing."
Although Brown was mum about the girl on the receiving end of those racy pics, we wondered if the experience would make him more cautious with his iPhone in the future. But it turns out Chris found something oddly liberating about it.
"Nah, I'm just living life, I'm just gonna have fun," Brown said, adjusting his Billionaire Boys Club knit cap. "At this point, there's no more insecurities with me. Everything's out on the table. You've seen everything! Also, as an artist I'm free with my music. I get to talk about the subjects I want to talk about and also reach people. So I'm just gonna live my life, man. There's nothing to be upset about, nothing to be angry ... where I'm at creatively and mentally is great so I'm not gonna let anybody or any naysayer or hater mess that up," he said before adding with a toothy grin, " 'cause there's no point, I'm ... winning!"


Nicki Minaj Lead Role In “Charge It To The Game”?




The evolution of Nicki Minaj continues as she exploits her talents as a singer and explores her passion as a writer. Nicki is considering several acting roles which includes playing the lead character of Erica Payne in the film adaptation of the six time Essence’s bestselling novel “Charge it to the Game” by Michele A. Fletcher.
While Fletcher does have a past history with Lil Kim growing up in Brooklyn and running with Junior Mafia, she feels either lady could bring a new kind of intensity to the street-lit character very much like Denzel Washington in Training Day. Other actresses on Fletcher’s wish list include Eve, Keri Hilson, Tasha Smith and Evelyn Lozada.

Donald Trump Talks His Uninformed Sh*t About President Obama’s Foreign Policy

  


Potential presidential candidate Donald Trump says he’s already better at foreign policy than President Barack Obama – and he’s not even in the White House yet!
Last week in an exclusive ENQUIRER interview, The Donald blasted Obama for not having sent troops to Libya to prevent killings at the hands of madman Moammar Gadhafi.
In a blistering new attack, Trump tells The ENQUIRER that Obama is “clearly in over his head” and says he grades him nothing better than a “D+” in his dealings with foreign governments.
And the billionaire real estate mogul has backed up his words with actions.
On March 10, Trump welcomed President Mikheil Saakashvili of the Republic of Georgia to Manhattan’s Trump Tower to formally ink a deal that calls for the building of two new Trump properties in the Eurasian country.
The Celebrity Apprentice boss is investing $300 million to build a residential tower and a luxury hotel as part of Georgia’s effort to bring tourists and businesses to the former communist country.
Trump, 64, told The ENQUIRER: “You see what’s happened with the Republic of Georgia and you see what’s happening to our country. You see what can be done with proper leadership.
“We don’t have that leadership – we’re being badly decimated in this country.
