Hot off the press this week, Jennifer Hudson finds Prince Charming, Kanye West has a Twitter tantrum, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz take their love to the streets and Lala loses her temper.
Taking it to the Tweets
The latest social networking craze to catch fire is Twitter, the place where regular folks can stay updated on their interests, friends and yes, even their favorite celebrities, but more than a few controversies have erupted thanks to fake celeb Twitter accounts and Kanye West decided to take his beef with his fake Twitter account public on his blog this week:
I DON'T HAVE A FUCKING TWITTER... WHY WOULD I USE TWITTER??? I ONLY BLOG 5 PERCENT OF WHAT I'M UP TO IN THE FIRST PLACE. I'M ACTUALLY SLOW DELIVERING CONTENT BECAUSE I'M TOO BUSY ACTUALLY BUSY BEING CREATIVE MOST OF THE TIME AND IF I'M NOT AND I'M JUST LAYING ON A BEACH I WOULDN'T TELL THE WORLD. EVERYTHING THAT TWITTER OFFERS I NEED LESS OF. THE PEOPLE AT TWITTER KNOW I DON'T HAVE A FUCKING TWITTER SO FOR THEM TO ALLOW SOMEONE TO POSE AS ME AND ACCUMULATE OVER A MILLION NAMES IS IRRESPONSIBLE AND DECEITFUL TO THERE FAITHFUL USERS. REPEAT... THE HEADS OF TWITTER KNEW I DIDN'T HAVE A TWITTER AND THEY HAVE TO KNOW WHICH ACCOUNTS HAVE HIGH ACTIVITY ON THEM. IT'S A FUCKING FARCE AND IT MAKES ME QUESTION WHAT OTHER SO CALLED CELEBRITY TWITTERS ARE ACTUALLY REAL OR FAKE. HEY TWITTER, TAKE THE SO CALLED KANYE WEST TWITTER DOWN NOW .... WHY? ... BECAUSE MY CAPS LOCK KEY IS LOUD!!!!!!!!!
Rebel Talking... I actually understand Kanye's beef - with an ego like his - there's only room for one Yeezy. It took him a long time to get our attention and he's clearly not trying to share it.
Jennifer Hudson covers the June issue of ESSENCE magazine looking completely beautiful, inside the interview she explains that her happy glow is thanks to fiancĂ© David Otunga - aka Punk - the lawyer turned pro-wrestler that tried to get it on with VH1 "celebrity" New York:
David is very family-oriented...I love that," Hudson says. "And he is such a gentlemen, like, I sit in the car waiting because I can't touch the door. I am not allowed! And he is so serious and so focused, but yet, just like me, so playful. We are very similar and I just love the balance."
Rebel Talking... Um, sounds sweet, but slightly um, deranged. You are not ALLOWED to touch the door? Glad she's happy, but it is lookin like J-Hud is a prisoner of love.
For over a year it's been speculated that Alicia Keys was the straw that broke Swizz Beatz and Mashonda's back, but with Swizz denying everything and Keys playing low key the story stayed largely under wraps. But this week the musical couple were snapped together looking very cozy in Miami and Swizz no longer seems to be trying to hide anything, particularly in the lyrics to his remix of Drake's "Best I Ever Had":
"Wake up in the morning and my baby cooked me breakfast Ass naked wearing nothing on, but a necklace yeah she be shining on ya She be gleamin on ya She be SINGING on ya I know you love her don't ya And we be travellin our ass off You can see the proof it's all in our passports Yeah, she say she wanna treat me like a king I get big gifts the money aint a damn thing She gave me a PARTY AT THE GUGGENHEIM Y'all should've seen them haters they lost their mind Only God can judge me What's next? The Ring? the baby? She really loves me!"
Rebel Talking ... Hope you got a good pre-nup Swizz, cuz last time I checked you're still married and I don't think God is going to be the judge deciding how much Mashonda makes off with in the divorce settlement.
Lala Goes Loca
After footage aired showing her angrily cursing out several women as she left a game, Carmelo Anthony's fiance LaLa Vazquez, who is also known for her role as an MTV and VH1 personality, released a statement claiming racial taunts and violent threats from Dallas Mavericks fans incited her at an NBA playoff game Monday:
"Obviously the play-off games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs/threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was unacceptable. The fans were totally out of control. What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn't show the abuse that was taking place."
But that was just part of the story. Lala took to her Twitter to get real specific about what happened:
"u cant harass a person,callthem&their fam n*gg*rs,call kiyan a b*st*rd,push me in the back of thehead cuz ur drunk and not expect a reaction"
"im human guys! thats my son. not a game! all the cameras caught was me going off on the 3 women behind me but never showing why, of course! 4:37 PM May 12th from web"
"im prob 1 of the coolest,humble,down2earth chicks u will ever meet (my friends can vouch 4 that)but racial stuff&kiyan attacks is goin 2 far"
Rebel Talking ... Can't blame Lala for crying foul on that one - but it wasn't the best look getting caught on camera up in arms. Mel, looks like you gonna have to spend some of that dough on a bodyguard.
