Oh Azealia Banks, why can’t you keep your beef between a bun or with a side broccoli? The uber talented by ultra argumentative rapper took to Twitter once again to air out her grievances with one of her peers. This time, it was Lady Gaga, who ticked Azealia off when she started to tweet about Swine Fest.
In response, Azealia wrote: “hmmmm sounds alot like Azealia Banks' mermaid balls. Of COURSE gaga wants to play mermaid again….. Pffft. Not picking a fight. Just all looks soo familiar…. To me. It's just …. Late.”
Somewhere Bette Midler, who called Gaga out for biting her mermaid bit is fighting the urge to tweet, “Whatever an Azealia Banks is, tell it, ‘Girl, bye.’”
Speaking of people who stay in trouble, Lil’ Scrappy was caught on video getting arrested following a fight at a gas station in Atlanta. There’s not really much to see, but know that those cuffs were placed on those paws and Scrappy’s girlfriend, Bambi from Basketball Wives: LA, was caught slipping on once those laws appears.

On a lighter note, Scrappy’s co-star, Rasheeda, just delivered a baby boy. As for how things are going with her husband, Kirk, who embarrassed the hell out of her all season long, she was quoted saying: “It’s an everyday thing. It’s a work in progress. When the child comes into play, it’s a feeling you can’t explain. Although a lot of things had been shown and seen, I already knew that when it comes to be a father, this would be a role that he’s always known to play. Things were put into perspective on television that he was not a good father but he’s a great father and my older son Kai is extremely happy to have this little brother. It’s a good time for us and I don’t want anything to get on my nerves.” [Necole Bitchie]
Although both Diddy and J. Cole swear they didn’t fight at a VMA after party as reported, sources tell Complex that they did have a confrontation, only not over Cassie. Pour their sources, an allegedly drunk Diddy tried to pour liquor on Kendrick Lamar over his “King of NY” declaration on Big Sean’s “Control” and was blocked by J. Cole. This sounds like a hip-hop version of Basketball Wives. I’d watch it, though. [Complex]
Sorry to soil the dreams of all 12 of you dying to watch Kris Jenner every morning, but it’s been said that Kris has been cancelled. Why? “Kris did get a ratings bump for her last show when Kanye West revealed the first baby pic of daughter, North West, with Kim, but that was a one time shot in the arm and it wouldn’t be indicative of what the ratings trend would be,” says a source. Don’t cry for Mama Kardashian. She’ll find her way back. [Radar]

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the legendary Debbie Allen and her thoughts on Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance.
Johnny Gill has no time for the bull, especially if it interferes with his business. The singer and Eddie Murphy homeboy filed a suit in LA, claiming that the Beverly Hills Four Seasons failed to stop a drunk white dude from hurling racially charged language with him before ultimately trying to go upside his head – leaving him unable to perform at an event in 2011. Universe, avenge this man. He gave us “My, My, My.” [Crunk + Disorderly]
Congrats to Eva
Pigford Marcille and Kevin McCall. The Top Model winner and actress announced that she is five months pregnant. On her baby on the way with the singer-songwriter, Eva said, "Being able to bring a life into the world is every woman’s dream but for me it’s more than just a dream it is a magical, mystical journey which I get to share with this amazing man. Kevin is the only man who I would share this moment in life with.” [BET.com]
Tyrese took to Twitter to complain about his child support, claiming that the system in California is “set up to make you become a victim of your success.” Isn’t he a movie star and singer? Can’t he afford to swing a few extra dollars? Never mind. [Rhymes With Snitch]
Justin Timberlake stopped by Sway In The Morning and talked about his upcoming album, Kanye West’s critique on some of the work from his earlier 2013 release, and that girl who can’t dance but is getting all of the credit for it.
On Kanye West's critique of "Suit & Tie": “At the end of the day, it’s just music. I love 'Suit and Tie,' it reminds me of the music I grew up listening to. I respect his opinion because I think he’s a genius… but I don’t share that opinion. It’s just not a big deal deal… to do it at SNL too… it’s not that big a deal. I don’t know that he fully understands what I can do, and that’s ok… as a matter of fact, Jay said the same thing."
On The 20/20 Experience Part II: “The first half was the freshman love, so you wanna go to her house and impress her parents. Then you realize she has an older sister, that’s a senior, dark hair and tattoos and she’ll give you that look, ‘I’ll turn you out.’ That’s the second half. Sonically, it sounds darker.”
On Miley: “She’s doing what 20-year-old girls do. The difference is she’s got a microphone, she’s on stage at the VMAs…Take it easy on her, she’s 20-years-old, she’s a young adult and she can do that.
That last bit sounded mighty White of you, Justin. [The YBF]
