Rumor Alert: Drake Takes Diddy’s Girl Cassie?


Did Drake take Diddy’s girl Cassie? The rumor mill is buzzing and word in the entertainment industry is that Cassie is allegedly signed to Drake’s OVO. Last December, I reported that Drake took his October Very Own’s label over to Warner Bros Records for distribution. The label is spearheaded by Drake and his partners Oliver El-Khatib and Noah “40” Shebib. Other acts on the OVO include PartyNextDoor and Majid Jordan.

According to celebrity blogger Necole Bitchie via an upcoming Mediabase newsletter: 

R&B singer and occasional model Cassie, who had one of the biggest 2006 rhythm-crossover hits with the minimal electro Ryan Leslie produced “Me & U” and has since then been signed under Sean Diddy Combs exclusive Bad Boy/Interscope distribution partnership, has now inked another deal with Drake and Noah “40″ Shebib’s OVO Sound, their first big signing. Riding high on the release of her new mixtape RockaByeBaby, well-received by fans and critics, Cassie is now preparing for a new single later this year, followed by her sophomore LP next Spring.”

If this rumor is true, do you think this was the right move for Cassie and Drake?

‘Single Ladies’ Actress Denise Vasi Covers BLEU’s ‘Bombshell’ Magazine


Single Ladies actress Denise Vasi covers the premiere issue of BLEU‘s Bombshell magazine (the publication’s newest magazine). Bombshell focuses on women’s beauty and lifestyle.

Adorned in throwback 1970’s inspired Vogue attire, Denise embodies the essence of bombshell; sultry, sublime, and sophisticated. Bombshell caught up with the BK born beauty to discuss her role on Single Ladies, prep for the altar, and her take on plastic surgery.” Below are some highlights:


Denise on her character Raquel:

“I think we are equally fabulous. I’m from Brooklyn and have a trucker’s mouth, don’t get me mad. Raquel is uptight in some arenas. This season you will see a lot of sass and her showing up to the table as a business woman.”

Vasi speaks on her fitness regime:

“I’m not a gym lover (but) I want to look my best for my wedding.  I make time with my trainer. We spend an hour training each day.”

Obtaining her golden glow:

“My fiancé thinks it’s crazy. I use Ghee.  Ghee is an organic butter used for cooking. I put that on my hands and feet when I have dry skin. You wake up silky soft.”

If she would ever try plastic surgery:

“If I have kids and my boobs start to sag, I might need a boob lift- why not?  If it makes me feel better, why say no? ”

First Beyonce, Now NBA Player J.R. Smith Rocks A New Short Blonde Hairdo

JR-Smith-Blonde-Hair - Copy

Is this short blonde hairdo week? Yesterday, Beyoncé showed off her new haircut and late last night NBA player J.R. Smith of the New York Knicks ablaze social sites when pictures of his new blonde hairdo surfaced on Instagram. Just like many others, I am surprised! I think there’s a meaning behind it. Does he want to be the 2013/14 Dennis Rodman? They both played the small forward position. Rodman started off as a small forward in his early career before becoming a power forward. Smith currently plays the shooting guard/small forward position for the Knicks. Speaking of the Knicks, last month, Smith re-signed with the team. The contract was reported to be worth $17.95 million over three years. What’s your verdict on Smith’s new hairdo?

Joseline Hernandez Covers Rolling Out; Believes She’s A Pop Star & Is She Disrespecting Tamar Braxton?


Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s breakout reality star and aspiring pop artist Joseline Hernandez covers the latest issue of Rolling Out. Inside, she talks about being a pop star (oh really?), working on her upcoming album, and fitness DVD, what makes her so infatuated with Stevie J, if they’re really married, and slams Tamar Braxton, “She’s been trying to come out with music for how many years? [It’s been] f—–g 20 years since her sister [Toni] was a star“. Below are some highlights:


Besides “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” what are you working on?
My album is coming out; we’ve been working on my album. I have international records on the table; we’re just working.

The last song we heard from you was “Bailar,’ is the rest of the album going to have that feel?
[It’s] reggaeton, hip-hop, pop — I do everything. I sing and I rap in Spanish. I love it, I’m excited that I can go from being a stripper to a pop icon.

What can fans expect from your upcoming fitness tape?
[It’s called] “Body by Joseline.” Honey, they not gonna do it. [Laughs] I’m just kidding when I say that. It’s one-on-one, when you guys see “Body by Joseline” the DVD it’s actually like I’m speaking to you. I’m gonna really tell a woman how to lose their weight. A lot of women don’t know you’re not gonna lose weight unless you know your body and understand what you can and can’t eat. I was like 30 pounds heavier, I lost weight [by] myself.

What is it about Stevie J that makes you so infatuated with him?
I think Stevie and I are infatuated with each other. Because things go right but I curse him out and I slap him; everybody knows that. I think he’s like my boyfriend. I guess it’s like a relationship. I guess we go together.

You guess you go together?
I mean we do go together — it just works. I never met a guy that everything just works out. I’ve had a lot boyfriends but that one — we just work out.

Are you going to take it a step further and get married?
You have to wait till the [end of] ”Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” season two. You’ll find out, you’ll see. I love him; he’s a great guy. [The couple has reportedly married.]

There are people like Tamar Braxton who have publicly dissed you. What would you like to say to them?
Well, I’m the baddest b—- out there in the streets. [They say] ”how dare this little immigrant girl come from Puerto Rico [and] just become a star.” You know I hate that s—! They’re jealous. Shout-out to Tamar Braxton, she wants to be a bad b—- like myself but she can’t be. She’s been trying to come out with music for how many years? [It’s been] f—–g 20 years since her sister [Toni] was a star. They don’t understand how a girl like me can come out and be this, but I have talent. It’s not my fault. When you got talent, you got talent. Shout-out to the haters; I love the haters. I do it for your amusement.
