Wayne on Jay-z and The ‘Old Guys’
There’s no competition [with any artists]. Music isn’t about competition no more. All the gangster rappers are happy, all the skateboard rappers are happy, all the white rappers are happy… Everybody just happy to do music these days. There are no problems. That sh*t died a long time ago with them old-ass rappers. We are just making music, making money and having fun feeding our families. Competition is for the old guys.
On Moving on from the show ‘Girlfriends’
I felt like we really did it. And I was always so present and aware of what a gift it was. I don’t think you realize when you’re in the grind, how in the grind you really are. I felt like a basketball player retiring from the NBA.

"I requested them to stop filming and they did,’ he said. ‘I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands. I didn’t know who was coming. If the name Rihanna had been mentioned, well no disrespect but it wouldn’t have meant anything. From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate. I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God."
Not only is she spending time with her fans overseas as a judge on UK X factor, but Kelly Rowland also manage time for her fans here in the states by performing hit song 'Motivation' and latest single 'Lay it on me' alongside Big Sean on last nights Jimmy Kimmel Live. Watch above.
"As a devout Christian, I feel it’s very important to show compassion for all of God’s creation—and adopting a vegetarian diet is the best way to keep innocent animals from suffering."

Earlier today in New York City, hip hop mogul Jay-Z made the official announcement that the New Jersey Nets will be moving to Brooklyn and they will now be called the Brooklyn Nets, there's even a color change (I don't know how to feel about that). He also said that the opening of the building will involve a few concerts with some special guests. Of course they asked about Beyonce's pregnancy and Jay had no problem dodging that bullet. Watch above.
"I'm trying to see if I can arrange that but I'm not sure if God is going for it, he has his own plan or she has her own plan.."
Now unless she's referring to God as a "she", she definitely had a slip up and told everyone that she and her hubby Jay are having a little girl! Sidenote: Jay-Z's sister Annie placed an order for some custom made Christian Louboutin booties that is clearly for a baby girl..
Watch full interview below.
Sidenote: You will get to see the wedding when Keyshia's new six episode reality show 'Family First' airs later on this year..

On his first encounter with Jay-Z
I heard that Jay-Zwas recording the American Gangster album. That same night, I made two beats and I thought it would be perfect for Jay-Z. I went to the studio where Jay-Z was recording and I waited outside for three hours. His Phantom finally pulled up. I was super timid and shy. I had the CD in my hand and I tried to hand it to Jay-Z. He looked at it and said, ‘What is this? I don’t want that. Give it to one of those other guys.’ It was crushing. That was another moment. But I snapped back to reality. I knew after that, I had to go harder. That type of rejection fuels me. I believe that greatness is fueled by rejection. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team; Jay-Z had trouble getting a record deal before Reasonable Doubt; and no one wanted to sign Kanye West as a rapper.
"I been saying my album was coming and it was, but I left Interscope and now, I'm on EMI so the album is definitely coming at the top of the year. It's called 'Lip Lock', it'll be out at the top off the year in March. I don't have a date yet."
Check out more photos and the performance below.

"The success of Heat was amazing, but why not represent a different side of a woman? Pulse represents the woman I am on stage. When I think about excitement, it makes me think about my heart racing and a pulsating beat —it’s my stage persona. Heat represents my sensual side, it’s very spicy and Southern. Heat Rush is more about the woman I am on my off time, when I’m on vacation."
Even though he had millions of supporters that called, wrote, and petitioned, death row inmate Troy Davis was executed last night at 11:08 pm. The highly controversial case that includes the shooting of a police officer that was off duty at the time brought on a lot of attention, due to the fact that the condemnation was centered around a witness testimony, one that stated they were forced by police to accuse Troy Davis. His supporters was hopeful when the execution was delayed for three hours but after Troy's life was taken away, there was a doleful tone. His last hopeful words regarding case and execution below.

On the use of the N-Word
"Why do I keep getting dissed and gotta ignore it like nothing is going on? I’ve never said it one time in my motherf*cking life… Everyone thinks I’m Vanessa [V-Nasty] and I have to answer [for her actions] every day in every f*cking interview."
