Pulse Report: Amber Rose & Kim Kardashian Like Chocolate Stix, 50 Cent Vs. Kanye West Round 2, Skillz Brings His Annual Madness
Friday, Jan 6, 2012 12:15PM
In this week's Pulse Report, doggies, we find out that Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian have more in common than round butts, see whose Twitter rant won between 50 Cent and Kanye West, pay proper respect to another annual Skillz round-up and oh SOHH much more!
1. Yeezy Fever
LOL. Doggies that know me know I rarely get excited when some things from the PAST make their way into the PRESENT. Like when you get a Jaz-O talking about how he put on Jay-Z or how some RAPPER put another RAPPER on back in 1990-something. SMH. Stop it. Aight? BUTT, extra "t" on purpose, in the case of Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian, I can make a rare exception! LOL. Something about the fact that these two chicks, Mrs. Butterworth of the Year contenders, got beef. Or can we even call it beef? I mean, I kept seeing stories here and there comparing them side-to-side (literally) and even some stuff with Amber sounding compassionate for her. But now, out of NOWHERE, airing out Kim K? Is this the equivalent of a nude leak buzz? Peep what went down this week, doggies:
"Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together," Amber exclusively told Star. "She's a homewrecker!" According to Amber, she was dating Kanye when he and Kim first hooked up -- and Kim was dating NFL star Reggie Bush! "They were both cheating," Amber, 28, said. "They were both cheating on me and Reggie with each other." Amber says it was Kim, 31, who instigated the whole affair by calling, texting and sending racy photos of herself to Kanye. "She was sending pictures, and I was like, 'Kim, just stop. Don't be that person,'" but apparently Kim didn't care enough to respond when Amber emailed her for an explanation. "I thought at least she'd be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded." Amber slammed Kim for her cheating ways. "It's very important that us women stick together and we don't f**k each other over like that." (Radar Online)
However, Amber is current dating Wiz Khalifa, 24, and has credited Kim for helping her find true love. "I want to thank her," she said about Kim. "Because if she was never a homewrecker, then I never would have met Wiz, and I wouldn't be as happy as I am now." To find out how Amber got her revenge and what she thinks about Kim and Kanye dating now, pick up the latest issue of Star magazine -- on newsstands Thursday. (Radar Online)
^ Now the initial reaction most of y'all had was, "WHAT!? HOW COULD KIM DO THAT!?" But what went through my mind is, "Wait a minute, what's the 'real' story behind all of this, all of a sudden? Hmmm........" Really, think about it doggies. What reason does Amber have to just put Kim Kardashian out like that? Not only did she say Kanye West was cheating on her, but she straight up went the snitching route on KK. Where they do that at? SMH. I thought them Philly chicks were a little bit more street than that, no p-code, Amber? LOL. I guess I wasn't the only doggy thinking that b/c hours later not only did Rose confirm what she said, this chick had the nerve to DEFEND IT! LOL!!!!! HUH!?!?!?!
"I know there has been a lot of rumors circulating the internet today. After being asked the same questions over and over in every interview for so long i had to be honest and get this off my chest ... I don't lie, i don't embellish I'm not trying to hurt anyone just setting the record straight. #FAME is a Crazy thing But I'm so thankful I have a AMAZING husband that Loves and supports me to the fullest he's my Angel and soulmate. Thank u Rosebuds and Rosestuds for understanding me Muva loves y'all so much" (Who Say)
Really, Amber? I mean, you're going to talk this reckless after having said this not too long ago:
"We're all human beings, celebrity or not, we all make mistakes. We all go through trials and tribulations in our lives and you have to overcome it. Just pray. Whatever you believe in, just pray and really keep your life very positive, that's what I do. ... With Kim Kardashian, I think a lot of people think that [their marriage] was all fake, it was all phony. You never know what goes on in someone's life, you can only really assume. You never know what happened! People judge me all the time but they don't know my life, they don't know where I come from, what I go through, or what I've been through." (Global Grind)
But, maybe these days Amber feels more comfy speaking on their behalf. "I mean, come on, like, you know. Come on! We'll keep it cute," she teased while stopping by The Wendy Williams Show. She then went into a bit of detail about the timeline of her relationship with Kim's ex, football player Reggie Bush. "I'm not a homewrecker," she explained. "I broke up with Kanye and he broke up with Kim. We met right after. We were both going through a hard time. We were each other's rebounds. It was brief, it was nice, he was a great guy!" (RapFix)
"I appreciate [XXL doing that]. When [Hot 97 radio host Peter Rosenberg] asked me that, I said, 'Yeah, I have a bigger booty than her,' but I didn't think it would be everywhere. It was everywhere! It turned out to be a big deal. Congrats Kim! [Laughs]. She's way more famous than me, she has way more followers and she's been out a much longer time than me. It's only right. I'll win next time. [laughs]" (XXL Mag)
^ Bottom line, doggies? Kanye West had BOTH of these chicks blessing him. Applaud this doggy! Also, am I the only doggy that recalls Kanye West putting a gag order on Amber? Like, huh?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
2. Call The Doctor
That's right doggies, call the doctor and I ain't talking about Dr. Dre neither. What's really hood with 5-0 Cent? I mean, are my Pulse Report opinionated umm....OPINIONS getting to him that much? I guess by now most of y'all have heard/seen, but 5-0 is really going off in the deep end. He's talking about seeing himself dying soon, looking at his legacy and going buckwild against not just Interscope Records but ALL forms of media. SMH. And then, if that's not enough, on the other side of the coin is Kanye West, a doggy that was at the VERY least piping Amber Rose and supposedly had Kim Kardashian in his sheets going on an emo-tional rant? SMH. The choice is for y'all, who had the worst rant? LOL!
"I have lost all the faith in the team I'm on. I having nothing left to say I will not be promoting my music.," he tweeted Monday (January 2). I'm going to deliver this album then. I have a film I wrote to focus on I'm not upset I'm just convinced this is not how I want to remembered. Ill be honest I don't think I'm gonna live much longer. That's why I started my street king movement. I want to mean more in other peoples lives. I mixed the big 10 because everything I do has to be the best I can make it cause other artist will create after hearing the ideas. this morning I was look out the window. I saw a bird fly right on to ledge. It felt like he was looking right at me. I hit the window he Just looked at me like he new I couldn't do anything threw the glass. I was tripping he sat there a minute then flew off. I'd like to a bird So I could fly and sh*t on the world. then you all could say 50 sh*t on me. That's luck right ? Then don't wipe the sh*t off." (50 Cent's Twitter)
"You guys might think I have some type of backing for my line but I don't. I did the first fashion show out of my own pocket and used the money I made touring to follow my passion. I've been working at this for 8 years now ...from the first offers to do urban clothing lines that I turned down... To begging Bape to do my line and never making any real headway... To having an office in LA that was shut down after the "MTV" moment along with my tour with GAGA I moved to Japan for one month after that and designed every night in my room... I had this opportunity to intern at Fendi and was also.. ...offered a position to at Versace wich I could not take due to my contract with LV which was for 2 years... I moved to Rome after I left Japan and worked at Fendi for 4 months under cover ... I was there to give ideas for the men's collection I snuck to Giuseppe Zanotti Factory still under contract and learned to design woman's shoes for 2 years before my first show in Paris After doing the first LV collection I was sure I would get a second shot to create but was never given the opportunity I designed a sneaker called the YEEZY with Nike. I'm "allowed" to design 1 pair of sneakers every 2 years. I have more ideas... Early 2011 ... I moved to Paris and opened a small design studio... the language barrier was quite difficult... I still don't have a Paris VAT number to this day... I don't know what a VAT but every time I asked why we didn't have fabrics they said... .. it was because of the VAT. In Paris I met many great people in design including the master Azzedine Alaia... Azzedine even came by my studio one day : ))) This was the greatest feeling to stand in his presence in my embarrassingly small Paris studio in a courtyard opposite Collate I remember being 5 years old picking and my mother taking me with her shopping at the discount fur spots She said I would always point to the most expensive furs even as a child LOL It's something about making clothing that always brings me back to that point. For the first 16 or 17 years of my life the only thing... I knew about my woman's clothing was what my Mom would wear. I guess some critics would joke that I still don't know anything LOL My Mom would wear blue jeans with a fur and an embellished "Cosby Show" sweater : ) to pick me up from school ... the teachers said I couldn't focus... I used to get kicked out of class for bringing dirty mags and drawing Nikeys in 4th grade Being a celebrity has afforded me many opportunities but has also boxed me in creatively." (Kanye West's Twitter)
^ LOL!!! Hope y'all doggies' eyes are insured! LOL! It hurt just to copy and paste all that!
3. Doggy of the Week: Skillz
This was a no-brainer for me, doggies. Yeah, you can make the argument that 5-0 Cent and Nas were heavy in the headlines, even Kanye West, but the one thing that makes Skillz a hotter emcee/rapper/entertainer in the first week of a new year is that "Rap Up" record. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Just think back to last year and how much backlash he got for not dropping it ASAP a.k.a. January 1st. I mean, can a doggy breathe a little bit? And this year's "Rap Up" went hardbody too. Not only did doggy keep it gully on the rap tip (Gucci Mane's face tat, Lil Wayne's jeggings, Ray J/Fabolous beef), but he kept y'all up on the Kobe Bryant divorce, politics, even Steve Jobs passing away. Big ups to RapGenius for having the whole record transcribed, too. Pay y'all's respects and cop the record for $.99!
Well excuse me, take a few minutes to mellow out Your boy Skillz on the mic back to tell about The year 2011, who else gonna spit it to you? Since you keep asking, I guess (I'm gonna give it to you)

In the housekeeper?/ And every girl in the world went crazy/ When Beyonce announced she was having her baby/ That's power! But ladies, you can calm down/ It's not like you getting invited to her baby shower!/ And Kim K said the wedding wasn't fake/ Her marriage? That was shorter than the East Coast earthquake/ And yeah we watched the throne/ But Lil Wayne's jeggings? Man, them pants had a life of they own/ A couple Twitter beefs got escalated/ But the best one was Ray J and Fab in Vegas/ They had me laughing out loud/ I wonder where Ray is..(I'm with the Money Team right now)/ Protestors got deep, and people went from/ Occupying Wall Street to occupying all streets/ Technology? Full-blown/ Cause if you don't have an iPhone/ Well.. you don't have an iPhone/ RIP to Steve Jobs fasho/ Cause that's how you change the world before you go/ Conrad Murray tho?

The one with the radio voice!/ Hoes keep winning tho, and you ain't gotta be a wife/ To be on a wife reality show/ A lot of deaths this year, was a shame to see/ From Amy Winehouse to my man Heavy D/ We lost a lot of people, to say the least/ And they will all be missed, may they rest in peace/ Y'all take care of yourselves/ And make sure you celebrate life in 2012
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Angel Luv
Let me honest with you doggies, LOL, I really thought Angel Luv and LoLa Monroe were two different women for about three years. LOL. It wasn't until I really started to get on my Mrs. Butterworth tip that I discovered it was the same chick. I mean, what type of Superman/Clark Kent, Batman/Bruce Wayne type stuff is that though? Video vixen and model by day and then a rap chick by night? LOL! Well, since it seems like the only time we'll see her flashing the goods in a music video will be in her own (thanks A LOT Wiz Khalifa, SMH....LOL. J/K), I thought it might be nice to go down memory lane. Kick back and relax, doggies.
My eyes hurt, doggies. Any of y'all with me on that? LOL. LoLa, uh Angel, uh, Miss Monroe.....errrrr......this week's Mrs. Butterworth has plenty of quality videos too! LOL!
^ Whatever you call her, just make sure y'all don't call her wack! LOL!
5. "STFU" Honors
It's 2012 and things ain't done changed. LOL. 12 months later and doggies are still talking out the side of their necks, but eh, without them doing so we wouldn't have this section, right? LOL. Leading things off has to be Jadakiss. Jada, let's be honest, I put you in my Top 5 Dead or Alive list any day but you haven't been scorching hot since 2004. Call a spade a spade. Longevity is an accomplishment? Ehhhh. Who are you kidding? Kool G. Rap has longevity put his bank account doesn't look like Jigga's. Next? Nas. C'mon Nasir, saying that you thought 2Pac was your brother is like us thinking that LeBron James and Delonte West were playing Word W/ Friends on their iPhones back in the day. LOL. And Somaya Reece? Beyonce and J. Lo status? LOL!!!!!! NEXT! Even though Charli Baltimore gets my respect for getting that love from Notorious B.I.G., saying her pen game is nice isn't convincing. If you got talent, doggies see/hear it. What have we heard on a consistent level since your Murder Inc. days? And last? DMX. C'mon doggy, don't jinx yourself! LOL! In case y'all didn't know it, you've entered "SHUT THE F*CK UP" Honors!
"Longevity is an accomplishment within itself. Sometime people overlook how long you been in the game. This is a game that deals with a lot of bullsh*t, you gotta be happy, take care of your family and bask in the glory of your loved ones. Sometimes the glory you see, the outside world don't see that. You have to use that as motivation to keep going. There's a lot of artists that's scorching hot right now, that won't have a five year career, or 10 years, nothing. At the end of the day I just feel blessed to be here."
"See, I was always into 'Pac early before his controversial side blew up all over America and the world. I was already into his music," Nas said in an interview. "I saw him as a kindred spirit, I saw him as a brother, so it was like beefin' with your brother. Not even beefin', it felt like, your brother over there's a little mad. This is an issue right now, so you gotta deal with it."
"I've always been acting. What people don't know is I started out in commercials," Reece told SOHH. "I started out doing commercials and then I moved onto doing films. I'm just like a lot of people who started out at the bottom. I was doing a lot of extra parts [in films/television] and then I moved onto one-lines, two-lines and now being offered roles. I feel so blessed. I'm never going to stop acting. I've been training and acting for ten years with Aaron Speiser [acting school] and I took courses over at UCLA. I'm never going to stop. I want to be a full brand like Beyonce or J. Lo. They're actresses and they have music and they have branding of merchandise, clothing and things of that nature. So you can definitely expect that from me and I'm going to work harder to push a positive image because that's really what I'm about. That's what I'm about, giving back. This is my thing, I love to do it, I love to act."
"My personal life overshadowed a lot of my music, which is kinda sad because I know for a fact that I can write really well," said Charli. "But, you know, at this point in my life I feel like that's in the past. The stuff happened so long ago that it's not really relevant to anything that's going on now, so hopefully the music can speak for itself and all of my personal life, stuff that went on that people are kind of intrigued with, will stay behind the scenes."
For the first time in who knows how long, DMX had a run-in with police that didn't result in another mug shot -- but it'll still cost him ... Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, X was pulled over in Hollywood last week for not wearing a seat belt. Cops ticketed him and his assistant ... and the two were let go. In case that wasn't clear, DMX WAS LET GO. No handcuffs, no jail, no nothing. Just a small slap on the wrist ... followed by sweet, sweet freedom. X tells us, "Just a minor ticket no biggie. A quick learning lesson about not wearing a seat belt. I will handle and pay for it." The rapper adds, "This would be the only reason I come in contact with the police because I am a changed man."
***Hey doggies, is it just me or does 2012 feel NO DIFFERENT than 2011, 2010 and 2009? LOL. Just kidding, the new year feels great and glad y'all are still rocking with the doggy. Don't believe that New Year's resolutions hype. If y'all want to change something in your life, you can do it at any moment. Aight? That's straight from Bulldog Butters' mouth! With that said, I'm going to jump on that
New York band wagon and ride with those punk Giants Saints this weekend. Until Tuesday, stay warm and safe, doggies! Team Kim Kardashian, too. LOL! --BB***
