Trey Songz took to Twitter to refute another round of gay rumors. The R&B singer who should not rap so much wrote: “The things you people craft up with hatred in your hearts. The things people believe without question, or validity, all baffles me. Photoshop and a retweet is all people need to believe, any and everything. I feel bad for the impressionable, no minds of their own.”
If I'm gay then Tupac bringing me a ounce for this session wit Biggie tomorrow. No weapon. #LOVE

Would I be wrong to hold out for bisexuality? No? Okay, fine. A man can dream.
Christina Milian is getting a reality series on E! The eponymous-titled show will focus on the next steps of her career. You know, because she’s still trying to sing – signing reality with Young Money. Uh, good luck with that, girl, but if I were you, I would’ve gone the Kandi Burruss wrote – i.e. write some songs for other artists, join a Real Housewives franchise, and maybe drop a random song on iTunes every now and then. [EurWeb]
Meanwhile, you’ll just have to wait a while before you get a Remy Ma reality series. The incarcerated rapper, who will be out in a few months, is hoping to focus on music first before she lets a show happen. Do I believe that? I do until Remy realizes the landscape and someone offers her the right check.
In any event, she explained: “That's when reality shows weren't as ratchet as they are now. I've been getting some calls about it but I'm like, 'I'm good.' I am going to be honest, I'm scared of reality TV. That's one thing that's not on my list to do when I get out. Once I have my music solidified, then I'll consider reality TV." [Billboard]
So Keyshia Cole called into Atlanta’s V103 “The Ryan Cameron Morning Show” this week to promote her new singles, “Rick James” and “Next Time,” right? Things were going just fine until radio personality Wanda Smith asked Keyshia if she thought she is still “wifey material” amid reports of marital strife between her and Daniel “Boobie” Gibson. Not surprisingly, Keyshia was not having it, responding with, “Ya’ll really fu**ing with my shit right now. I got some other shit going on.”
Wanda tried to rephrase, but the rudeness was already laid there, so Keyshia shot back, “Are you trying to insinuate that I was one-dimensional? Now I’m ready to smack a bitch.” She laughed, though, noting that she was just joking.
I'm done wit interviews for a minute! That interview with V103 left a very bad taste. And to be honest, I don't deserve that kinda treatment

There’s a rumor going ‘round Al Gore’s Internet that Kim Kardashian and Chris Brown had a fling and it’s pissed Kanye West off something terrible. Per the “Kardashian insider”—definitely the not modeling Jenner sister, mad at her mother—claims “Even though the encounter between Kim and Chris happened long before Kanye came on the scene, being Kanye, he’s still intensely jealous.”
Allegedly, Kanye can’t stand Chris, mostly due to what he did to Rihanna. The source added, “He’s obviously someone Kanye doesn’t believe he and Kim should have anything to do with. Especially now with their Vogue cover, Kanye knows he and Kim are an A-list couple who don’t need to be tainted by associating with Brown in any way, shape, or form. Kanye gave Kim a stern warning to avoid him in the future!”

Speaking of that Vogue cover, here’s the legendary Naomi Campbell on it. I love this woman more and more each day. This is actual shade, y’all. [For Harriet]
A judge has lifted a bench warrant on Anita Baker following the R&B singer’s failure to appear at a creditor’s examination last September she was subpoenaed to attend over allegations that she failed to pay $15,351.41 for work done on her Grosse Pointe, Mich., home.
Her attorney, Jamal Hamood said: "We asked for the emergency hearing because the court had issued a bench warrant for Ms. Baker's arrest. That was the first time Ms. Baker had heard of the lawsuit that had been filed against her in 2011." Who else feels like wanting to sing “I Apologize.” [USA Today]
Despite talk to the contrary, T.I. and Tiny are not permanently breaking up. In her interview with Wendy Williams, Tiny explained that while the two do have their fights, they are still very much a couple. Good because that would ruin their cute reality show.
Tiny had this to say: "We had a couple fights and we were arguing."
"We argue all the time, though. We had this one big fallout about the Grammys. It just lingered on and it got bigger and…We're still together, there's no divorce. We're normal. We go through the same thing that every marriage goes through."
Wendy pointed out that she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring, though Tiny said her finger was swollen. Other swollen things include her butt and breasts, which she admitted were both boosted via cosmetic surgery. Good times. [Rhymes With Snitch]
Joan Smalls took it upon herself to lick Beyoncé in her “Yoncé ” video, explaining at a recent event, “That was my idea. I just got inspired by the song—[the lyric] ‘Yoncé all on his mouth like liquor’—I’m like, ‘Can we actually see what Yoncé would taste like? Can I lick her?’ And they’re like, ‘Go for it.’ I’m like, ‘Are you sure?’ And I asked her, and she’s like, ‘Absolutely.’”
She didn’t feel weird about it, noting, “I mean, I do what very few people in this world would ever do,” she said. “So Jay Z is a very lucky man.” As for how the King Bey tastes, Smalls laughed and said, “Uh, sweet,” Smalls said, laughing again. [Vanity Fair]
One of the other models from that video, Chanel Iman, also gushed about Bey, saying in a recent interview: “Beyoncé is such a great woman. So positive and uplifting. All three of us models are very successful in our careers, but because in the fashion industry ‘there’s only one Black girl allowed’, they’ve made us compete to be that one girl. Beyoncé allowed us to show the world that we don’t have to fight against each other. She gave us the chance to see that we are far more powerful together.”
She also addressed racism in the fashion industry: “It’s an issue that my industry is still working on. I think that everyone should be equal; it shouldn’t be about color. It’s unfortunate that there is still a lot of politics involved in both the acting and modeling worlds. I do think we’ve come a long way, but things could still be a lot more diverse on the runway and in films.” [The YBF]
