Frenzy Friday. Everything’s scattered to get the day started, so why not begin with Diddy teaching the world a new dance move? The new Harlem Shake 2.0? Speaking of moving and shaking, it seems Ciara is running into some trouble after ditching a gay bar event? He might not be old enough to legally drink, but Chief Keef is finding himself in plenty of grown-up situations, including a new beef in Washington, DC? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Do The Diddy Dance
Has Diddy ever not had a genius marketing plan on deck aside from the Vote or Die campaign? It seems like he’s up to his usual antics and started a new dance movement called the #DiddyJetDance. There’s way too much explanation needed for this, so Rap-Up has the scoop:
First he brought us the Harlem Shake, and now Diddy is hoping to start a new dance craze with the #DiddyJetDance. In an iPhone-shot video released online, the jet-setting mogul introduces us to the newest sensation that’s sweeping tarmacs across the nation. He sets up an iPod speaker on the floor of the runway and begins to dance to Problem’s “Like Whaaat.” While looking fly in a blue suit, he slides, shuffles, and spins while the airport staff looks on. He makes his way up the stairs and onto his private plane, where the party continues (Look for a cameo from his bad girl Cassie). “When you’re living THIS high, you can’t be afraid of heights!! Learn how to FLY with me!!” tweeted the Bad Boy boss. (Rap-Up)
Could this be legit? Diddy is widely known for being a jokester and yet it shouldn’t be long before tons of kids start making YouTube clips trying to emulate the dance. Are you going to be #DiddyJetDancing this weekend? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Happy & You Know It
Is Ciara too big to not show up at a Hollywood gay bar? She’s made millions and sold plenty but are there some limits she’s not willing to go to? That appears to be the case after allegedly agreeing to appear at an event for $10,000 this week. TMZ is all over this:
Ciara is being sued by a West Hollywood gay bar … which claims the singer left them high and dry when she backed out of a gay event during L.A. Pride week … TMZ has learned. The nightclub going after Ciara is “The Factory” — which, according to one Yelp reviewer, is always packed with “gays” who “know how to party.” According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Ciara signed a $10,000 deal to appear at The Factory on June 7 (tonight) … one day before she’s supposed to perform on the main stage at the 2013 L.A. Pride parade. Factory says Ciara had mentioned that she couldn’t “perform” at Factory due to restrictions in her contract with the L.A. Pride event … but made it seem like making an “appearance” would be totally kosher. But Factory says … Ciara unexpectedly pulled the plug on the whole thing on June 3, leaving the nightclub without a star for its big Friday night pre-gay parade bash. Now, Factory is suing Ciara for breach of contract — and want her to pay for all the money the club spent to promote her appearance PLUS the cash they’re losing out on thanks to Ciara’s last-minute bail. (TMZ)
Could Future be part of the blame for this? It’s no secret she’s grown very close to the rapper/singer/producer and could have been swept off her feet before this all went down. Ciara’s never made too many headlines about legal woes, hopefully this isn’t the start of a new trend. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. What’s Next
Is Chief Keef really going down the wrong path? It seems he just can’t stay out of trouble despite reaching so much mainstream success. Even though he’s only 17, could Chief have ripped off some people for $8,000? All Hip Hop Rumors is on it:
Now, I will give you some info on what seems to be a “beef” brewing for Keef. Mind you when you talk beef about this dude, that generally refers to guns blasting and the potential of having your kids napped. So, this is more like “MF’s got gipped.” I am going to show you below an “article” on it but I know most people cannot or don’t want to read. I’ll summarize for you. Basically, two rappers from Washington DC are saying that they gave young Keef $8,000 for 12-bars. DAMN, they couldn’t get 16? Sheeesh! Anyway, guess what happened? They didn’t get a damn thing. They got jerked and Keef is $8,000 richer. These guys only did this about a month or so ago, but who knows. It looks like now they will be chasing their paper like:Damn, so they already are planning a diss record for Keef. That will definitely get their money faster. Honestly, that’s not a lot of money to Keef so I won’t doubt that he’ll blow it off. (All Hip Hop Rumors)
Is there any chance Chief Keef could just be providing a late verse? It seems like for a mere eight bars, he could come up with something. If not, should he be wary about performing in Washington, DC? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
