Just one day after Kanye West embarrassed Taylor Swift on national television during the VMA’s, he appeared on the Jay Leno Show to apologize. West, Jay-Z, and Rihanna were set to perform on the show later that night but Kanye asked if he could sit down with Leno for a few minutes to address the issue.
Leno worked Kanye over pretty good, even bringing West to tears. But the question still remains if West was, in fact, sincere with his apology. Sure he went on stage and shedded a tear, but the guy has been trying his absolute hardest to stay in the spotlight 24/7. Now he hits a peel in the road after cracking a joke he got no laughs for and he’s suddenly a changed man?
The clip was orignially posted here at the Box but NBC Universal has since took the video off of the internet. Sorry folks, but Kanye West just has that much money.

If you like reggae music, then you probably already know about Soldiers of Jah Army (SOJA). From their inspiring start back in 1997 to their chart-topping album Get Wiser, SOJA comes back better than ever with their newest album Born In Babylon. This 15-track album is available exclusively on iTunes and it’s worth every penny.

If I have to hear one more time that Michael Vick is signing with someone by the end of this week, I may just order one of those personalized jersies with Vick’s name on the back and start my own ‘official’ rumor. It’s getting to be a little much. Does it really matter where Vick ends up? He won’t come into the season until week six, and then people expect him to take over at quarterback?!?! Gimme a break.
Vick, because I do believe he will be signed, will be used as a jack-of-all-trades if for anything at all. He may play a little quarterback, a little receiver, a little decoy, whatever — but the guy will not be a starting quarterback this year. And for those who think Vick will be a substantial upgrade to your team, think again. His input will be very minimal and he just so happens to be human, meaning his production will be minimal as well.
So, as a close and dear friend of Michael Vick and one of his many trusted advisors (lie), I have come up with a plan that will really help Mr. Vick get back on his feet. (Drumroll…) Michael Vick becomes the newest addition to the hip-hop world when he changes his name to ‘K-9’ and starts dropping platinum rap albums!
I don’t want to lie and say I thought this through, but I did spend about six seconds on it. But please, hear me out! Instead of keeping the football fanbase guessing on where the hell Vick will end up, he becomes a rapper and eliminates all 32 teams. Instead of Vick getting paid the league-minimum, he gets paid like all the other rap artists and collects royalties. And instead of struggling in the league only to be ridiculed by millions of fans, ‘K-9’ can spend his time showing you around his mansion on MTV Cribs. Doesn’t sound all that bad, huh?
I think the main problem with Mike Vick and his “comeback” is that he thinks that football is all he has — and this is obviously not true. How do I know this? Well other than the fact that I’m his friend, advisor, and all that jazz; Vick’s first interview since being released from prison was actually conducted with hip-hop mogul ‘Young Jeezy’. That’s right, instead of interviewing with ’60 Minutes’, ESPN, or sitting down on Oprah’s couch, Vick decided to hop on camera with Young Jeezy during his ‘America’s Most Wanted Tour’. Did Tony Dungy advise that?
I can see it now: “K-9 Tops Charts with Hit Song, ‘It’s Just A Dog’.”
Note: I am not a Michael Vick “hater”. I support Michael Vick and I thoroughly believe that he has paid his debt to society for being a complete frickin’ idiot. He does deserve a second chance in the NFL. However, using your rapper friends to get yourself into the hip-hop game just sounds a little easier.
That’s the recent rumor published by Fox News.
Rapper Eminem and pop-star Mariah Carey apparently had a fling back in 2001. Ever since their split, the two have been going back and forth with ‘he-said-she-said’ crap. Eminem has released a new song, titled “The Warning”, that spills the intimate details of the couple’s brief relationship and threatens to leak photos and voicemails if Carey and her clown husband Nick Cannon don’t “back-off”.
Eminem’s new song is a response to a diss track previously recorded by Mariah Carey entitled “Obsessed”. The video includes a character that appears to be Eminem (it’s actually Carey disguised something awful). Carey goes onto to call Eminem “delusional” for implying that he slept with her in his song “Bagpipes for Baghdad”.
It should also be noted that Nick Cannon reportedly “slammed” Eminem for being obsessed with his wife. This comes off as extremely funny to me. The fact that Nick Cannon thinks he can sing/rap/yelp/spit is absolutely ridiculous.

Rumor has it that singer/song writer Amy Winehouse has died. However, that rumor is false. Or so it’s rumored….
It wouldn’t be a surprise that Amy Winehouse actually died. In fact, some people may wonder how it took so long. But where the suspense draws is how she apparently died, because there are soooo many different potential causes. Emphysema, overdose, cancer, malnutrition, alcohol poisoning, asphyxiation, ugliness? Who really knows. The suspense is killing me.

She’s the wild young woman that is taking over the radio with her instant pop-classics, “Poker Face” and “Just Dance”. She has stated numerous times that she doesn’t care about her popularity or her looks, she cares only about her music and performance. Well, Lady Gaga has proven that statement true when she appeared in Malta to hold a quick press conference.
Take a look at this ‘trendy’ outfit….wow. She looks like a mummy of the future. Or like her parents were Darth Vader and a knight from Camelot. What in the hell is up with this girl?

If you were to ask me what I thought about hip-hop and its current standing within the world of music, the word “garbage” could have pretty much summed it up. It was as if every down-home wanna-be rapper was trying their hardest to find the next best catchphrase. So why am I using the past tense? Because with Jay-Z’s new song, “Death of Autotune”, he may have single handedly saved the genre….again.
