Well, it’s the end of the week. It’s the last day. So, VIPs, it’s on you. Here’s what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna get my recap on for you entertainment fix all weekend long. Without any further delay, here’s what I’ve got to say.
Remember when he kicked ass on the court? Well, lately, he’s been getting his ass kicked in court. Allen Iverson is a horrific parent and on top of that, he’s now mansionless. After a family court judge signed off on his divorce from Tawanna Iverson, he has been put on a pretty tight leash concerning his five children.
The judge signed the decree, stating that Iverson “does not know how to manage the children; has little interest in learning to manage the children and has actually, at times, been a hindrance to their spiritual and emotional growth and development” among other things. He’s been ordered to abstain from alcohol for 18 months, see a therapist and attend AA meetings in order to keep visitation rights. Iverson also defaulted on the mortgage for his $4.5 million home in Atlanta. The bank sent his home into foreclosure and bought it right from under him. Damn.
Photos from Beyonce’s half time show have caught some heat. In several interviews, Bey has talked about how she turns into a different person on stage, perhaps even a trance. So, when the photos of the “unflattering” faces she made during her performance surfaced on BuzzFeed, her publicist scrambled to have them removed by sending out an email. Needless to say, those photos are still up, screwed-up face and all.
Speaking of faces, can somebody please tell Lil Kim to step away from the knife? Earlier this week, Kim revealed a brand new look to the world. Pinched nose, big cheeks and small eyes and noticeably lighter skin, I couldn’t figure out if she was going for an Asian caricature or looking like a lost Jackson child… the one they’d like for you to never know about.
Amanda Bynes called Jay-Z an “ugly face” on Twitter. I don’t care to debate whether she’s right or wrong, but she’s been tripping for a while now. She tweeted a link to a pic of Jay and minutes later, deleted the link from her feed. She already has 99 problems, I don’t think she wants a Jay-Z one
Wil.i.am is venturing in to the world of technology with his new line of iPhone camera accessories that he unveiled at the MacWorld expo called i.am+ foto.sosho. Fashioned after vintage cameras, they allow you to take photos, add filters and even have detachable lenses. They are currently available only in the UK.
Lastly, Justin Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience drops March 19 and he’s released the track list and the album cover for his fans. He tweeted “”I wanted you guys to see this first!!! #albumcover #tracklist https://stipple.com/photos/30556744″ After looking them over, they’ve definitely got my interest piqued.
“Pusher Love Girl”
“Suit & Tie”
“Don’t Hold the Wall”
“Let the Groove Get In”
“Blue Ocean Floor”
I hope this album will be worth the wait. Since we’re talking about albums, the Grammy’s are coming up on Sunday. Will you be watching? Do you think Frank Ocean is going to win Album of the year? Let us know. Well, that’s all I have for you guys this week. Stay tuned to MegaCityVIP for all your hip-hop news and be sure to check them out for all your music promotion needs.
