[THIS HAPPENED] Lil Wayne’s Seizure, Breezy+ Rih Rih Call it Quits, Ciara Returns

Beyoncé says when it comes to her sister Solange, she’s a headbussa, she’s a head bussa. She’ll know a hater out, she’s a headbussa. Okay, not quite, but I bet you all of the biscuits at Popeye’s that she can quote that song on command.

In any event, speaking with Britain’s More! magazine, Queen Bey says when it comes to Solange: "I'm a crazy person if anyone says anything about my sister. I don't even know what happens to me. I completely turn into a lunatic… I was taught the importance of being a sister and my sister looking up to me."

That’s Creole for “I’ll clock you to the ground if my bodyguard Julius doesn’t do it first.” Consider yourself warned. [Rhymes With Snitch]

Over the years, Ciara has gone from a multi-platinum selling entertainer looking to follow in the footsteps of artists like Janet Jackson and Aaliyah to another bad one-two step away from joining Mya and co. at the R&B pity party.

During her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Ciara had this to say about her missteps: “I feel like… at least from my eyes, when I look at people I really admire and respect, it’s a journey. It’s not about the short term of it all, and everyone is going to hit a few bumps in the road, you’re gonna get punched a few times, you’re gonna fall, but most importantly it’s about getting back up. For me, I went through a phase where I was kind of trying different things in life, whether it was meeting people or meeting new friends… I think that’s what you gotta do in life, you gotta try things, and find what works for you, and what doesn’t.”

Okay, whatever you say, CiCi. Meanwhile, “Body Party” is performing well so gold star for you, ma’am. [Miss Jia]

Although Mariah Carey saves her subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) shade towards Nicki Minaj at the judging table on American Idol, her hubby, Nick Cannon, has repeatedly thrown the platinum-selling rapper under the bus the moment you ask him about it. Speaking with KTLA in Los Angeles, Nick claims Mimi suspected that things wouldn’t work her between she and Ms. Minaj.

Nick explained: “The amazing thing is that my wife, foreseeing all of this, tried to tell the network. She said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work, I’m afraid.’ She said, ‘I don’t need this. I’m doing this for the brand of American Idol, which she has been a fan of and [she] loves the show, but [they're] kind of gonna take this in the wrong direction like one of those reality shows. She’s said, ’I didn’t sign up to be on Love & Hip Hop.

So Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is the best thing in life, but whatever, I get your point, Nicholas. [Necole Bitchie]

Speaking of Idol, Fantasia feels it’s time for new judges – ones who would provide more than a mere ratings boost. She said: “Bring in the legends like Gladys Knight, bring Elton John and Aretha Franklin. Bring in someone to sit on that panel with an actual ear and eye to say, ‘Yo that’s a star’ and not just people to bring up ratings.” Shout out to that midnight train to Georgia, but you can only expect so much from a televised talent show that by design is all about ratings.

Choreographer and ex-Michael Jackson playmate, Wade Robson, has come out to accuse the deceased King of Pop of molesting him as a child. In 2005, Wade testified that Michael did not touch him inappropriately, though he’s now petitioned the singer’s estate for money for childhood sexual abuse. Michael’s former attorney, Tom Mesereau called into TMZ and insinuated “Wade's accusations are motivated by money … specifically a payoff from AEG, which is currently on a mission to trash Michael's reputation.” [TMZ]

It’s been a decade since we’ve had a Big Tymers album, but according to Cash Money head and one half of the rap duo, Birdman, there’s a new one on the way. However, don’t bother getting your roll on. Birdman claims that the group’s better half, Mannie Fresh, won’t be apart of the project. So who will we get instead? Lil’ Wayne and maybe Drake. I vote no and would rather hear Justin Bieber join SWV. And for the record, if Mannie Fresh isn’t a part of the Big Tymers album, it’s not a Big Tymers album. Try again. [Miss Info]

Chris Brown recently confirmed that he’s ended his relationship with Rihanna, noting, "The way I look at it is, I am always going to love that person, but people have differences and people have different wants and needs. And at the end of the day, she's a young girl. I can't really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young.”

In response, a “source” close to Rihanna (that sounds like a play cousin or hairdresser) said to Hollywood Life: “They need to be [over]. There are only so many games a girl can play, and when it’s played out, you move on.” I could’ve sworn these two just released a song talking about their business is no one’s but theirs.

Eve claims she doesn’t want her (as of now) hypothetical biracial kids to see color, saying: “I don’t want them to see color. I never did. I grew up in the hood and my mother was very good at it not being a Black thing, even though I grew up around all Black people. I want them to want to know everything about all kinds of races. I’m a Black woman and I love being a Black woman. And I think my child should know that Black part of themselves. But at the same time, their father would be White and I would want them to know that side of themselves. And British! That’s a whole other situation [Laughs].”

Yeah, good luck with that one. [Vibe Vixen]

Though Lil’ Wayne has numerous seizures, he can’t recall any of them. The rapper reveals that if not for his family, friends and doctors, he wouldn’t even realize he suffered from them. On his seizures and battle with epilepsy: "I told them the other day, 'Y'all can tell me right now that y'all was lying', like 'You know what? We lyin' ain't nothin,' and I'd have to believe them because I don't know. I go to sleep and wake up in the hospital. I don't feel anything. I'm 100, I just hope it stops happening." [MTV News]

For those of you who have said that teenage Chicago rapper Chief Keef, who has already had some legal trouble in his young life, needs some kind of mentor in rap, I’m sorry to tell you that he’s found an older figure, though arguably not the best one. Gucci Mane, who seems to get arrested every seven tweets, announced that he’s signed the rapper to his label. Good luck and God bless. [Smoking Section]
