Take ‘N It To Da Tweet



Both Tahiry Rose and Joe Budden have dated their share of people since their über toxic on-again-off-again relationship ended back in… well, the two have broken up and hooked up back so many times that it’s hard to say when they actually called it quits for good, but you get the point. Their relationship should certainly be old news by now; however the public just can’t seem to get enough of their very public disputes and tid bits of information surrounding their relationships that get leaked through Budden’s detailed songs and their infamous YouTube videos of personal arguments.

Because of all that, the former couple has been rumored to have landed slots on the next season of VH1?s Love and Hip Hop New York and those rumors were made facts this morning when Tahiry took to Twitter to put her ex-boo on blast for still doing interviews and songs about her. She tweeted:

Flattered that @joebudden keeps rapping about me … Acting like I can’t get over him. knowing that I keep him relevant

@joebudden feed the audience what u want I fight VH1 every episode they try to feed me with your sorry a**. U need me more than I’ll ever need u!

Sheesh. I guess we don’t have to wait for a formal announcement from VH1 regarding Tahiry and Joe’s participation in Love and Hip Hop New York‘s upcoming season. Something tells me the two new additions will make things very interesting.



Trapped in Broadway Closet


And no, we’re not talking about that one street in your city that is Broadway, but the Great White Way in NYC. The real Broadway, which has brought you classic plays like “RENT,” “Les Miserables,” “FELA!” and other classics just might be bringing you the hilarity that is the “Trapped In The Closet” saga, brought to you by the R-uh.

While at a screening in NYC to showcase the newest episodes and twisted plotlines of “Trapped In The Closet” earlier this week, which debut on the IFC channel on Black Friday, R. Kelly said that he had been offered the opportunity to possibly take his characters and storytelling to the big stage, and he says, “To transform it into a Broadway version, that’s what I’m working on.” R. Kelly will also appear in a few performances, and he says that he had always wanted to act; so doing “Trapped In The Closet” allowed him the chance to do so:

“I’m just having a lot of fun. I don’t have a job, so I sit in the studio all day and think of stuff to do and this is just something stupid I’ve done that’s been successful for me,” he said. “I’m having a lot of fun with it.”

So, you’re probably going to have fun watching the newest episodes in what they and Kelly call his “hip-hopera.” The plotlines include everything from characters with HIV, folks fighting against a mob boss, and a pimp (ya’ll remember Lucius) trying keep his business going. And if these new episodes aren’t enough for you, I’m sure you will be geeked to know that Kelly says he has more than 50 new chapters coming and he’s ready to milk this cow and drive this car until the wheels fall off. Yay.

As he said to reporters.

“I want everybody to know I’ve got 85 chapters of ‘Trapped in the Closet’ waiting in the studio for y’all,” he said. “The chapters that are coming – the show, we call it – is going to exceed every chapter that you have ever seen.”



The Kiss Goodbye

According to people who say things on the Internet, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are already “cooling things off.” I know. Apparently, the couple who eats fro-yo in leather together does not stay together. Despite each featuring the other one in their songs, TV shows, tweets, and interviews, rumors abound that the pair are drifting apart.

“Friends are wondering if things are cooling off between Kim and Kanye West, who appeared in her life just in time to take the attention away from her disastrous marriage and divorce with Kris Humphries. While Kim is in Miami, Kanye has been living it up at Paris fashion week … Another source tells us that things between Kanye and Kim are “cooling off’ because “he’s getting tired of the constant press and promotion. He’s not as tight with her as he was.”

Okay, you had me up until Kanye’s “getting tired of the constant press,”  But, guys, if this is true — we have a big problem.


Live ‘N LRG


You can now add “fashion model” next to Gucci Mane’s resume after the “trap star” entry. The Atlanta rapper with the infamous ice cream cone tattoo on his grill appears in the 2012 Holiday look book for Southern California based clothing brand LRG

Remember that Instagram photo that was floating around of Gucci LaFlare fishing in a jacuzzi? Well it turns out it was for this very shoot. There is also a photo of the “Lemonade” rapper going to town on a gang of hamburgers, with a fork. This all while Gucci is rocking the latest in Lifted Research Group Apparel, of course. Also featured are graf artist POSE, snowboarder Chris Grenier and pro skaters Felipe Gustavo and Chico Brenes.
