In a recent interview with a radio station in Baltimore, 50 Cent does not hold his tongue when speaking of Diddy.
If the guy doesn’t have significant savvy with the actual business or with the actual culture he’ll be out of here. You’ll see Jay around as long as he’s been around. What he’s on like 11 albums? Puff’s still out there. He don’t even need a record. Cause he don’t got one. Like you know Puffy ain’t got no music that you wanna hear. That “Big Homie” s**t is garbage. I’mma keep it all the way real with you, because the guy says, “Don’t worry about if I write my rhymes, I write checks.” And then sings to you, but this is why we got rid of Milli Vanilli.

I know she was feeling a certain way when he snapped at her like that, but she was professional and kept it calm. Watch below!

Tori Spelling plans to clear all the rumors about her and her family and tell the true life story her self in her new Lifetime docu-series “True Tori.”
Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott have been battling rumors and gossip surrounding their marriage and McDermott’s infidelity.
The first episode will air in April, just three weeks after the show began taping. “Since viewers will be seeing events almost immediately after they occur, nobody knows how the drama will unfold — not Tori, not Dean — and only time will tell if Tori and Dean’s marriage survives,” a press release for the show said.
The couple have been the center of many reality shows, including Oxygen’s “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.” Spelling and McDermott have been married since 2006 and have four children together.
The new series begins April 22 at 10 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
Brandy Norwood and her fiance Ryan Press have reportedly called it quits.
“They are no longer together. The engagement is off, but the friendship is still on,” the 35-year-old R&B singer’s rep told Us Weekly. “They decided to take a step back and reevaluate the relationship.”
This would have been Brandy’s first marriage, though she has a 12-year-old daughter named Sy’rai with her ex Robert Smith. Despite her recent split, the singer’s rep says Brandy is still looking for love. “Brandy has a daughter and she still wants to be married and have more kids but she is working on so many other things right now. They haven’t ended things on a bad note and they still speak all the time.”
