While Joe Budden was performing at S.O.B.’s last night, Jay-Z stopped by Angela Yee, Mike Kyser, andDierde Maloney‘s bowling party at Chelsea Piers in NY. He didn’t come alone. In the house, was Chris Paul, Usher, Robin Thicke, Beyoncé…and French Montana. Bizarre, right?
Meanwhile, MTV’s Jayson Rodriguez celebrated his born day and Beyoncé heckled my bowling skills. The nerve. Ha! Additional flick of the lovely Angela Yee and Deirde after the jump. What a night.
Jeezy spoke with MTV News earlier today to deny that he was taking shots at RickOfficer Ross on his new track, “Death Before Dishonor”. He also spoke about his upcoming mixtape, 1000 Grams & explains that all of the songs are over other rapper’s tracks.
“It’s not a dis,” Jizzle told MTV News via phone from ATL. “First of all, I’m not gonna get nothing out of dissing that guy. That’s one. What am I gonna get out of dissing him? I think sometimes people can read into things too deep. They trippin’ man. They crazy out there. Basically, if homie takes that as a dis, he’s insecure, and anybody else out there who does, they are insecure.
Young also described Ross’ “(B.M.F.)” as “dope” and said he was bound to jump on the record one way or another, either officially or through the mixtape circuit, which he ultimately did. On 1,000 Grams, Vol. 1 he also flips Soulja Boy’s “Pretty Boy Swag” into “Dope Boy Swag” and Kanye West’s “Power” into the record & #8212; so aptly titled for the #1 Trap Star & #8212; “Powder.” Records by the Clipse and Young Money also get their instrumentals borrowed for the tape.
Hours after reports surfaced that former "American Idol" champ Fantasia Barrino was admitted to a North Carolina hospital for a drug overdose after an apparent suicide attempt, Barrino's father and manager have said the singer is already on the road to recovery.
"She's doing fine," Joseph Barrino told RadarOnline.com from his home in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Manager Brian Dickens confirmed reports that the cause of Barrino's overdose was due to her ingesting too much medication, a combination of aspirin and a sleep aid.
"Her injuries are not life-threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time," Dickens told People magazine. "Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon."
The incident is said to be part of an ongoing investigation, and it comes just after Barrino was named in a court filing alleging that she was having an affair with Antwaun Cook, a married man. Last week, Cook's wife Paula filed court documents that allege that her husband and Barrino began a "covert adulterous affair" in August 2009 and that the two made a sex tape, which led to the couple's divorce. Barrino denied that she was responsible.
Late Monday evening, local authorities were called to a home in the Glynmoor Lakes neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina, after Dickens reported that something was wrong with the former Broadway star. According to police sources, the officers who arrived on the scene found Barrino in a closet. The fomer "Idol" champ was immediately taken to Mercy South Hospital at Carolinas Medical Center in Pineville, North Carolina.
