done anything. #Relax." Continue to keep her and the family in your thoughts and prayers.

Tamar Braxton made sure she was done up before she delivered her baby boy Logan. During her appearance on Chelsea Lately, Tamar revealed to guest host Loni Love: “I made sure that I had my hair and makeup done and I had diamonds on, because I really wanted to meet my son the right way. I didn’t want my hair all over the place. I don’t get that! Why does your hair need to be all over the place? It’s just pushing.” This is exactly how I would expect Tamar Braxton to give birth. I’m sure right after the umbilical chord was cut she shouted out, “She did that!” [Necole Bitchie]

A rapper named Liv says Jay Z was trying to get his life back in 2008 – right before he married Beyoncé. As the story goes: “I was on the set hanging out with my sister and he sat right next to me. He literally moved his chair from next to the director’s next to mine. He was nothing but a gentleman. It was one of those things where we really connected. We talked, and left each other on that note. Then one of his bodyguards approached me and said, ‘Jay wants your number. He’s gonna call you when he’s back in town. I was like, that’s so wrong. One, that’s really immature to send the bodyguard to get my number. Two, I’m not somebody that would just get a call when he’s in town.”

She added, “I wasn’t going to disrespect B like that.” She went on to say that Solange looked at her crazy. Funny, that makes two of us. [Radar]

Another random rapper, Ransom, recently said on a track called “Man Alone,” "Before Nicki was wearing those crazy wigs, I was doing verses for her, just hoping she made it big." Some misconstrued that as a dis towards Nicki and insinuation that he wrote her rhymes. So yeah, Nicki Minaj didn’t take that so well. When trolled by TMZ about it, Nicki said, "Yo, I'm not even a man and n**gas got my d*ck in their mouth.” Then she pointed out that she’s better than him and many male rapper. Ransom himself tweeted in response, "As far as I know she writes her own [lyrics]." Yes, now let’s all move on before Nicki curses someone else smooth out. Love you, HB! [TMZ]
