Two years after Sean Taylor's death, his mother and immediate family members are facing "Hardships":
It was reported that, Sean was hugely generous with his family during his life, but when he died intestate, his $5.8 million estate passed largely into the hands of his young daughter and longtime girlfriend; his mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, among others, were left out of the loop.
How can this happen? He wasn't married to his long time girlfriend and help me to understand the reasons why "his" estate wasn't passed down to his mother?

The rapper is featured in the new issue of NME. During his interview with "Ian Brown", he reveals that the "Blueprint 3" album was originated in "Manchester".
According to Jay-Z:
..Kanye West flew to Manchester in December of 2007, to give him the beats for this CD.
" That was the night 'The Blueprint 3' started...Kanye flew to Manchester to give me the beats. He gave me 10 tracks, already sequenced, like, 'Here's the album, just rap on it'. Literally, 'This is the album start, it should come on like this, and end like this'. I'm like, 'Heeey, let me have a say-so in this! A couple of them stayed on the album, laid the foundation. That was the night when 'The Blueprint 3' was born. That was the seed."

The Laker's star was recently asked why did he rush into a wedding with Khloe Kardashian and his response was:
"I’ve been a rock star. I’ve been on my own since I was 16. Doing it so fast, there were a lot of family members that couldn’t even agree, so I can imagine what it would look like to the person that is not involved in my life everyday. But I fell in love and the reason that I knew I was in love was because I knew how I felt when I wasn’t with that person or if she was no longer in my life...I’ve been in LA for 10years. I’ve never had a problem meeting women."
That feeling Lamar spoke of, was it "Love" or merely "Butterflies"?

..has been accused of violating eavesdropping laws by "videotaping a backstage conversation by former city employees at a concert in July 2000". The orginal cost of the lawsuit sought $3 billion dollars and there's no mention of the revived suit being less than the amount previously sought.
According to the Detroit News:
"The former employees -- mayoral spokesman Greg Bowens, police spokeswoman Paula Bridges and then-police commander Gary Brown --went to Joe Louis Arena to demand Dr. Dre not show an eight-minute video at his "Up in Smoke" tour concert because it contained nudity. The video wasn't shown, but tour promoters included footage of the meeting on a widely sold tour DVD. Other artists on the national tour included Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Eminem and Xzibit. The employees allege they never gave permission to record the meeting and it shouldn't have been on the DVD. The case was dismissed twice by local courts, but the Appeals Court panel ruled that a jury should decide."

Many websites are reporting that Beyonce Knowles threw Lindsay Lohen out of her dressing room because "she" wanted it for herself.
During Beyonce performance at the F1 Rocks concert in Singapore, she ordered her people to fetch the largest dressing area backstage.
As the host of this event, Lindsay arrived early and had "claimed" this room for herself. However, Beyonce ordered her staff to push Lindsay out of her dressing room because she wanted the space for herself.
Many reports are also stating that it was extremely hot in Singapore and Beyonce entourage wouldn't allow others to share her cooling fans.
Her rejection made other acts "SWEAT" and their performance suffered!
It was 90 degrees backstage and people were passing out. Beyonce's entourage refuse to switch on her personal air cooling fans because they were just for her.
A British DJ name "Seb Fontaine" actually suffered a heatstoke and he was quoted as saying, "We were told, ’No they are Beyonce’s fans.’ I wasn’t asking to play her drum kit on stage. I just wanted to keep cool."
To add, Beyonce' camp presented a 139-page request, that demanded six beauty chambers, fitness equipment, a authentic fruit platter and tea and honey!

Jay-Z's father, Adnes Reeves, left his mother when he was 11-years-old and shortly after they patched things up, he died in 2003. In actuality, Adnes Reeves isn't the biological name of Jay-Z's so-called father. Jay-Z's father is a hermaphrodite (A person who is walking around town appearing as a woman).
According to Jay-Z:
Jay-Z had discovered that the man he believed was his dad moved in with his "lover" who lived 10 minutes up the road (not his grandmother) and this man never accepted Jay-Z as his son. Jay-Z became envious of his so called step brother and so-called father. This man and his entire family was tormented by "Gloria / Adnes" and most died from their sufferings.
Jay-Z revealed to Oprah that his father's younger brother was stabbed to death, in actuality, someone stabbed his so-call step brother to death!
According to Jay-Z:
A couple of months after their meeting, Jay-Z's so-called father died.
Many websites are reporting that Kayne West is preparing to check into rehab. Several sources are revealing that he's drinking too much and it's beginning to effect his liver and he won't STOP.

...is laughing off the media reports, which state that he was hospitalized for alcohol poisoning.
According to David, he became ill after suffering a reaction to mixing meds for his so-called ear infection.
He says that pills taken to keep him off alcohol wwas mixed with his ear infection meds.
Funny - I bet he pushed those medications down with a glass of wine, that he claims has less than 2% of alcohol.
Wait - Michael Jackson was noted for doing the same thing...mixing alcohol with doctor prescribed medications.

Last Friday, Jay-Z joined Coldplay on stage at Wembley. As Chris was seated at his piano, Jay-Z appeared and managed to tackle him to the floor - playfully.
Everyone thought that it was strange for Jay-Z to grab Chris away from the piano right in the middle of his set.
Many website are reporting that Chris and jay-Z rolled around a bit and Jay-Z gave Chris a hug before he resumed his position at the piano.
Now - What if Jay-Z surprised Kayne West, 50 cent or some other rapper and the two rolled around on the floor?
Mrs. Paltrow wasn't happy about this. Immediately following this concert, Chris was confronted by his wife.
It is safe to say that Jay-Z's friendship with Chris Martin has reached a higher level and Mrs. Paltrow isn't happy about this:

There are stories circulating around the internet concluding that the Beyonce / not so - swift incident was staged.
People magazine reports that:
Matthew Knowles later reveals the following to Us Weekly:
"It wasn't my decision to bring Taylor out...It was all Beyonce's decision. I want to be clear about that. My job is to execute and come up with some ideas, but ultimately that was Beyonce's decision...I can only say it was a proud night for me as a manager, but more importantly as a father..."I've always said the thing that makes me most proud about Beyonce is not how many records she sold or how many plaques she has or how many awards; it's that she's a genuine good person...I know it's hard for people to believe that she can really be that nice of a person, but she really is."
Beyonce has no brains! If it wasn't for her father, she would've accepted her award, thanked her family and moved on.
If you only knew the truth about Beyonce. I'll post more on that later..

A gospel singer, who taught music to the schoolchildren of Minneapolis has pleaded guilty to raping a teenager from Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Park girl was 15 at the time the assaults took place in her home and his Plymouth home. The girl's mother discovered the sexual nature of their relationship after she learned he had given the girl a ring and after the mother read explicit text messages the two exchanged.
Gregory B. Washington, 33, of Plymouth, pleaded guilty Monday in Hennepin County to two counts of third-degree sexual assault.
Washington offered no statement to the court when he entered his plea but will have a "more complete opportunity" to speak about the crimes he committed when he is sentenced on Nov. 12th.
Also while on probation, Washington was a contract music teacher in three schools on Minneapolis' North Side. Nobody with the district ran a required criminal check on Washington before he was hired.
Washington was convicted in a similar incident in St. Paul in the late 1990s that involved another 15-year-old girl.
At the time of the St. Paul assault, he was the music director at Zion Baptist Church in north Minneapolis.
In February, a county prosecutor called the parallels between the cases "astonishingly similar."
"He leads a young female through the auspices of the church, had sexual relations with the female and eventually had a child with her," Assistant County Attorney Judith Cole said in Hennepin County District Court of Washington's earlier conviction.
According to Washington's online biography, he started recording with the awarding-winning gospel ensemble Excelsior, and he has shared the stage with Sheena Easton, Roberta Flack and Sounds of Blackness.

Insiders are deciding to give Kayne West one more chance to apologize for interrupting Swift's acceptance speech to argue that Beyonce deserved her award!
He apologized via his blog, but has since deleted his apology.

Kanye West's career has fallen.
His latest outburst was directed towards the fans who voted for country singer Taylor Swift and not Pop singer Beyonce Knowles. At any rate, his rude behavior was totally unacceptable. I am sure Beyonce will look at this situation as an opportunity to "go country".
Word has it that Solange Knowles informed Beyonce of the backlash posted via Twitter immediately following this outburst. To save her @ss and fanbase, she restored Taylor's "moment" through "her" acceptance of an award.
Many websites are reporting that this incident was staged. Maybe it was or maybe it wasn't. At any rate, Kayne West rants are being documented and expect sales in his music and fanbase to decline.
After every rant, Kanye West apologizes. Here's part of the apology he posted on his website to Taylor Swift:
How supportive is Amber Rose? I thought your "girl" was suppose to have your best interest at heart...
For the record, did any of the proceeds from "Single Ladies" go to the ancestors of "Gwen Verdon"?
