KANYE SAYS SORRY!!!!

  by    0   1648

Remember at the most recent Grammy awards when Kanye tried to crash Beck’s acceptance speech after he won Album of the Year??

Well yeah, fast forward to today…. Kanye went on twitter and tweeted the following
“I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, I’m sorry Beck.”

During an interview earlier this month, he also admitted that he had not heard Beck’s album Morning Phase until after the Grammys.

“I was completely hypocritical,” said ‘Ye. “I went to dinner and sat down with Taylor Swift, and ironically, they were playing the Beck album. I was listening like, ‘Man, this is kinda good. I ain’t even gonna lie.’”

Quesion is, will Beck accept the apology? Would you?

The news most of you have been waiting for!!! Mayweather and Pacquiao are going back to the ring May 2nd at the MGM Grand in Vegas.
According to Yahoo Sports Formal details on the agreement have yet to be announced, but it’s expected that Mayweather will have a 60-40 split advantage on revenues, with Mayweather making at least $120 million and Pacquiao, who signed the contract for the bout Thursday, earning $80 million.

“Floyd should enjoy being the A-side while he can,” Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer, said. “Because on May 2, Manny is going to put him on his backside.”

“I am very happy that Floyd Mayweather and I can give the fans the fight they have wanted for so many years,” said Pacquiao. “They have waited long enough and they deserve it. It is an honor to be part of this historic event. I dedicate this fight to all the fans who willed this fight to happen and, as always, to bring glory to the Philippines and my fellow Filipinos around the world.”

“I am glad my decision to meet with Manny and discuss making this fight happen helped get the deal done,” said Mayweather. “Giving the fans what they want to see is always my main focus. This will be the biggest event in the history of the sport. Boxing fans and sports fans around the world will witness greatness on May 2. I am the best ever, TBE, and this fight will be another opportunity to showcase my skills and do what I do best, which is win. Manny is going to try to do what 47 before him failed to do, but he won’t be successful. He will be number 48.”

TLC reached out to their fans to help make it possible for them to release one last album asking for financial support. They initially set out to raise $150,000, but they surpassed their initial goal just a few days after launching the fundraiser on Jan. 19.

4,201 people donated to the campaign, raising a grand total of $430,255. The funds will go towards the recording of their fifth and final album.

In return for their donations, fans will receive perks including a TLC digital scrapbook, autographed lyrics, photo shoot, and listening party.
Katy Perry contributed $5,000, while New Kids on the Block pitched in $20,000.
“Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude for our fans for all of their amazing support. We feel so blessed to know that not only do our fans love us, but they believe in us,” the group told PEOPLE. “We have received support from longtime listeners that attended our first concerts, plus new fans who have only just started listening.”

Starting in May, TLC will join New Kids on the Block and Nelly on “The Main Event” tour.

IGGY IS TAKING A BREAK FROM SOCIAL MEDIA

  by    0   2515

Iggy announced that she is taking a break from social media saying, “I feel the hatred and pettiness i see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that,”. “To become nasty because of the way I feel i am treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling.”
In response, she has decided to take a leave of absence. “But I also want to let my fans know i am taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining.”

She recently returned from Hawaii with her boyfriend Nick Young and discovered photos of herself online. But she was criticized for her cellulite. “Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it’s shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol,” said Iggy.

She called out the paparazzi for invading her privacy. “I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a perve with long distance lense hiding out taking pictures, everyone deserves peace.”

VANILLA ICE ARRESTED FOR WHATTT??

  by    0   1005

Vanilla Ice was arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft in Lantana, Florida today according to TMZ. He allegedly stole furniture, bicycles and a pool heater, among other items, from a vacant home in the Sunshine State at some point within the last month.

The charges are tied to an abandoned house Vanilla Ice was renovating for his The Vanilla Ice Project television show, which he has hosted since 2010.

The owner of the house did not approve of the removal of the items, leading to the arrest of the rapper, whose given name is Robert Van Winkle.

After police obtained a search warrant, they searched Vanilla Ice’s Palm Beach County residence and found several of the items in question, Variety says.

The items have been returned to the owner and Vanilla Ice has reportedly been cooperative during the investigation.
