1. A Booty-ful Mind
I've never been the one to complain when it comes to booty talk, so don't expect me to scold Nicki Minaj and Karrueche Tran for doing what any normal person would think is try to get publicity over some butt-related silliness. The question is, if you had to choose, which one shocked you the most. For the sake of all things right in this world, let's start it off with Nicki Minaj:
Lord Jesus, Nicki Minaj is on fire. The "American Idol" judge has made a lot of fellas happy this Valentine's Day by sharing some sizzling bikini pics from her tropical getaway. Fresh off her "Freaks" collaboration with French Montana, the sexpot flaunts her bangin' body and big booty while dropping it low in a greenbikini, white stilettos, and floppy hat. "Happy #VagDay boyz... #JerkResponsibly," teased Nicki, who incited a riot on Twitter after posting the hot pics. (Rap-Up)
Due to limited spacing on here, you're going to have to actually go to her Twitter page to get a full screen shot of what Nicki's bringing to the table. But just when you want to give props to Nicki for getting nasty, it's Karrueche Tran who rocked my world.
Karreuche Tran seems like the sweetest most coolest girl, no wonder Chris Brown took so long to let her go. Ness Nitty got Karreuche to play a fun game guessing which booty belonged to what celebrity. (Gossip Daily)
WTF? As bizarre as it seems, something about Karrueche Tran going through pages of booties and playing the "Guess The Butt" game, well, kinda is more of a turn-on than Nicki trying to show some back shots. I applaud Nicki for trying to take part in the fun of Valentine's Day, but KT sizzles with her cool, fly and sexy swag.
2. LL Cool J's Top 5 Worst Grammy Moments
I'm not going to lie, LL Cool J is a legend. But just like we've seen with a lot of entertainers that have gone past their prime, sometimes you have to know when to hang it up. Just when we thought Exit 13 was his good-bye to the game, LL is still kicking and pushing. I came across this hilarious write-up from Hello Beautiful that I had to put it up. They actually have 12 things, but in an effort to not jack all their swag, I picked my favorite 5. Funny stuff y'all.
1. When this girl, in the audience, raised the roof
2. When this guy was so calm
3. When he thought it was still cool to hit his Dougie
4. When he made this face (cause we were thinking it!)
5. When he looked like he was dangling from the top of a pole
LL will always be known for his accomplishments, but his decision to close out what would have been a pretty special Grammy Awards ceremony in the fashion that he did just felt really, really...awkward.
3. Moment of the Week: AP.9's Butt Crunch
For the record, I would like to say I seriously doubt that AP.9 (I feel dumb for even typing out his name like he's a real rapper) is gripping onto Coco Austin's butt in the photo that's made him worthy of "Moment of the Week." Much like last week when a lot of doggies argued that Chris Brown did/didn't ink up that rant letter, this can go under review as much as you want, but it doesn't take away the principal. AP.9 is feeding off this weird attention he's received. He's made some of the most hilarious and heart-pounding accusations about what he did with Coco. Where do I start? There's the fact he claimed "she's" the one who wanted him in her room, then there's the whole having sexual relations thing and to top it off? Doggy said they had their rumble without protection. You want something even more messed up? He said he hopes she's not preggers! LOL. Say what you want, but that's a bold doggy right there. He has to get shine for being either extremely confident or extremely dumb.
The rapper who first made headlines in December after releasing a series of steamy photos with Coco Austin is speaking out again, this time with claims that the pair made a racy sex tape. AP. 9, a low budget California emcee, recently sold a story to Star magazine claiming that he not only slept with Ice-T's wife but documented the entire thing on camera. Star now says they have photos of Coco in various stages of undress. Furthermore AP.9 is shopping around a sex tape that reportedly shows him engaging in various sex acts with the star. Most recently he's released a photo of him grabbing Austin's voluptuous backside. Check out another innapropiate photo of Austin with the rapper. (Rolling Out)
Let's also be clear that if there's any shred of truth behind this photo, if this at all is really Coco, then it's a wrap. I know the photo is from far away, but the face looks a bit skinny and the booty doesn't look as big as Coco's. Then again, the more I look at it, I can see why it might really be her. Either way, AP.9 is playing with fire and at this rate, I don't think he even cares if he gets burnt. LOL. Applaud him, y'all.
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Katy Perry
You'll never hear me singing, "I Kissed A Girl" or one of her more up-to-date records, but you can see my hard drive loaded with photos of Katy Perry. I didn't really get it when she first hit the scene. Mad people were just going crazy over her musical talent (Ehhhhhh) and her facial features (Ughhhh) but then it was one cold winter night that I discovered her twins. Yes, nearly Siamese, it it weren't for a bit of space to separate them apart. Katy's been getting love on the low-low in hip-hop for a minute now and I figure why not joing the public wave and give her some shine in here. Now this is a white girl that's got fellas a.k.a. doggies howling for more:
^ LOL! The facial expression from Ellen Degeneres is hilarious. If it weren't for the fact there is no sign of hip-hop at all in that photo, it would have made SOHH Cap Diss for this week. LOL.
5. Rappers Say The Darndest Things
Why do some rappers open up their mouths? LOL. Don't they realize it would be much better to just say "NO COMMENT?" I have been preaching this to you all for a minute now but they still don't seem to get it, therefore, the show must go on. Waka Flocka Flame, there's no such thing as "fake" and "real" beef. None. Beef is beef. That's as bad as 2 Chainz making us think he was really going to show off some acting on "2 Broke Girls." SMH. You played yourself, double entendre. I really mess with Freddie Gibbs hardbody, but calling out any rapper that's doing reality shows? C'Mon. Respect a hustle when you see it. And just when the Kat Stacks is out of the bag, she's actually doing something she's never done before....apologizing. LOL. I can't even make this stuff up. Lastly, Big Sean, you know I ride out to you, especially trying to get my "Guap" up, but we're a month away from spring, don't try to build up hype for a Cruel Winter album. Now an EP, you might have something, but an album? LOL.
"It's 2013, like, I'm like, f*ck it, you know what I mean," Flocka said in an interview. "All fake beef and real beef, I'ma spread 'em apart. Like that fake beef, I got real sh*t going on right now. Real sh*t I got to focus on right now. No sh*t you put in metaphors, no sh*t you put in bars. It's real right now. None of that. So I'm gonna cut every throat right now, I don't want a n*gga to block no door but the one he's standing in. ... I'm looking at this n*gga like, 'This n*gga ain't do nothing remotely dangerous to me, when it could have been something, it was nothing.' It was dead then. So that's why I never pressed it. Later on in the year, lame n*ggas just don't got nothing to talk about so they're talking about the same sh*t. N*ggas getting money though. So I'm like, 'If I punch you in the face, I might lose this endorsement deal.' I'm like Ochocinco, I can't go out like that."
After hooking up with a big-time music personality, Max got a hook-up of two tickets to the Grammys and a free trip on a private jet. Ironically, the jet they wound up on happened to be the one Caroline used to own. It even still had the same pilot. It also happened to pick up one more passenger in the form of 2 Chainz himself. He and Caroline hit it off pretty well -- after she freaked him out by posing with her butt next to his face while he was sleeping. He didn't seem put off by her rap skills at all, joining her in an impromptu take on that "Birthday Song" single. Unfortunately, a mechanical problem separated the girls from 2 Chains, who caught another flight to the Grammys. They had to settle for a cheap motel in the Midwest and their memories of flying high.
"I think that's wack. I think you weak if you're on a reality show, really," Gibbs said when asked for his take on rappers landing starring roles in reality television shows. "You know what I mean? I think you should just do your music and do your thing and if you're mad at me saying that, come see me."
"The only reason I even spoke of Juelz was because I was looking live on Ustream and my fans were asking me on the chat what was going on, on Instagram and I answered about it. That's all. So I don't know how people took that out of proportion and claimed that I was back 'exposing' rappers and that I lied to the federal immigration judge."
"Yeah, I hear it's coming," Sean said in an interview with radio host Jenny Boom Boom when asked about the LP possibly being delayed indefinitely. "I don't want to spill the beans. I'm pretty sure, I'm pretty sure you're gonna get it soon, sooner than you think. You know, who knows? It's gonna be an awesome project and like I said, you're gonna get my project, you're gonna get Pusha T's album later on this year, Teyana Taylor's album, Common."
***It's NBA All-Star Weekend and the way my New York Knicks have been playing, it couldn't have come at a better time. The Knicks are losing some cheap games and the Miami Heat are looking scary. Baseball season is right around the corner too. We've got another solid month of nasty weather, so weather the storm and know that warmer conditions await. Too many predictions to make but I'll give a couple shots right here: Steve Novak wins the three-point contest and James White will take that slam dunk contest. Who cares about the skills challenge? LOL. Peep y'all on Tuesday! --BB***
