Paula Patton doesn’t know why people want her to care about Miley dancing on her husband Robin Thicke.
Cher was not feeling Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance at all. “It just wasn’t done well,” the Pop legend told USA Today. “She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.”
P!nk called the performance “tacky” and said Miley can do better. “She’s really freaking talented. She’s beautiful. She can sing her arse off and to go up there and do that? She’s cheating herself and she’s cheating the rest of us… She can do what she wants. People can like it if they want. I’m not going to buy it. She can do better. I’ve seen her do better.”

Smoking weed, loving Bob Marley and appreciating reggae music are not prerequisites to being a Rastaman, and prominent Rastafarians are not enthused by Snoop’s sudden attraction to their movement. Legendary reggae singer Bunny Wailer (photoed above), an original member of Bob Marley & The Wailers, has gone so far as to call the “187” rapper a fraud. Read More →
50 Cent released a moderately successful single featuring Adam Levine, and follows it with “Major Distribution,” a song that won’t be majorly distributed. It features Snoop Dogg, Young Jeezy and a cameo of his son wearing Gunplay’s MMG chain (as seen above).
A voluptuous vixen fake pushes Kidd Kidd’s son in a gold-plated stroller that has guns for decoration. I’m not fluent in sign language, so I can’t translate the hand signal his son is giving me. However, one thing is for sure–Kidd Kidd is a model father. Read More →

British sensation Cher Lloyd invited her quirky mannerisms onstage as she performed “Want U Back” on America’s Got Talent. Her set was complete with an ice cream parlor containing a bar with people dancing on top. It was appropriate dancing for an 18-year-old’s set.
