The bee hive is hysterical right now.
Facing up to 10 years.
Big Freedia thanked his fans for their support as he walked into court with his reality TV crew in tow and wearing his purple hair long and straight over a black velvet jacket, with sequins shoes and glittery fingernails.
He then pleaded guilty and admitted to taking vouchers he knew he didn’t qualify for. He was released on a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to be sentenced on June 16. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, as well as having to pay back the value of the stolen vouchers.via

Hov speaks on his music streaming service Tidal in a new blistering freestyle.
When asked by Sway on his relationship with Jay Z, Dame unloads on Jay Z’s close relationship with a Desiree Perez who is a known DEA informant and according to reports works closely with athletes in Roc Nation Sports. Perez is the wife of longtime business partner OG Juan, who is rarely seen and never does interviews.

Court records obtained by The News show Perez was part of a massive cocaine distribution case in 1994. Following her arrest, she became a key government cooperator, going undercover to help the DEA build successful cases against major traffickers in Puerto Rico and Colombia.
Cooperation with the feds won her supervised release, but she went on the lam and then served nine months in prison.
Perez was a 26-year-old mother of young children in 1994 when she was arrested in New York for possession with intent to distribute 35 kilograms of cocaine, according to court records reviewed by The News.
SKIP to 54:30 for his stance on Jay Z.
Federal authorities charged she was part of a drug conspiracy stretching from New York to Florida to Puerto Rico.
She and co-defendant Amaury Lopez faced at least 10 years in prison (Lopez was supposedly one of at least three men to marry Perez since the late 1980s).

In his song, “Young Forever,” Jay Z envisions a life where “you never get old and the Champagne’s always cold.” He may not be able to do much about aging, but he may be able to help with the chilled bubbly.
Just days after the British beverage giant Diageo swapped whiskey for tequila, taking control of the Don Julio tequila brand from Jose Cuervo, a new company led by Jay Z has acquired Armand de Brignac Champagne from Sovereign Brands.
This lady’s letter was very heartfelt and though she calls out Kanye for being MIA when it comes to the important issues going on in Ferguson and across the country, to which even our President has had to discuss on occasion, she did it with intelligence love and with no judgement. Sadly Ye’ seems to be more concerned with the worship of Kim K. and making sure she is viewed as a fashion icon, his own problems behind the scenes within the lily white fashion industry, and being viewed as a genius than the plight of the black community. Hopefully his silence is just temporary and he makes some strong statements in his new music releasing sometime soon.

You have spent much of your career defying naysayers and the standards people have set for you. You refused to be intimidated by guys on the South Side of Chicago for your creativity. You broke free of being only a producer when you proved Jay Z wrong and became one of the biggest names in rap music. When music executives tried to control the content of your music, you released the now-infamous “Jesus Walks.” When Nike would not give you creative control over Yeezys, you took a deal with Adidas instead.
You are, by definition, defiant. And I love that about you.
It get’s worse.
11:33 AM PT — TMZ has obtained an EXTENDED VERSION of the elevator footage … showing Solange continuing her attack on Jay Z for 2 more minutes.
At one point, Solange even smacks Jay with her purse … spilling the contents all over the floor of the elevator.
Eventually, the group exits the elevator … but not before Solange takes a few last shots.
Oh shit. Let’s give Jay Z major kudos for having the ultimate restraint and not striking her back.
Jay Z was ferociously assaulted by Beyonce’s sister Solange … who was wildly kicking and swinging at him inside an elevator … and the attack was captured on surveillance video.
Born Justice Allah, who became a part of the Five Percent Nation when he was 15, explains some of the basic concepts of the Five Percent Nation and questions Jay Z’s affiliation.
Little do they know that the Nation has been influencing Hip Hop since the beginning, I guess it took global superstar Jay Z for them to take notice.

Black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, white men are the devil, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost and only a small percentage of people understand the world.
These are just some of the beliefs behind the bling — the gaudy Five Percent Nation medallions worn by Jay Z and Carmelo Anthony.
We get the CDQ of the ‘Drunk in Love’ sounding ‘Good Morning’ from Future featuring the Durrty Boyz.
Based on what he says before he performs it, he had something major to do with the interpolation medley of this song which magically turned into Beyonce’s hit record “Drunk in Love”. I could see Beyonce hearing the original song falling in ‘love’ with it and it being rewritten for her. This is the music industry people and this type of sh*t happens everyday. If you want more details (no pun intended) go HERE..

He makes his case that Jay Z has for the past few years, has been riding the coattails of Kanye West. I caunderstand his points but I don’t necessarily agree for a bunch of reasons. The fact Hov will forever be in the conversation for Greatest MC ever and though Kanye is a megastar, his name rarely if ever comes up in those debates. But without a doubt Hov has reinvented his self a bunch of times and he is smart enough to ride the wave of new trends instead of fighting them. The fact he took his former artist Young Chris’s flow and ran with that and pretty much shows how he can take something and make it his own. He himself said “you made it a hot line, I made it a hot song”.
Check out Jon Stewart and the Daily Show’s take on the shitstorm Jay Z has been hit with since it has been discovered that Barney’s his newest corporate sponsor has been racially profiling its black customers.

The little lady—who has already made music history, is in the process of having a her name trademarked and was creatively honored and represented by her mother through blue nail polish—finally has a face. Bey-Bey and hubby Jay-Z set up a Tumblr account dedicated to their beautiful baby girl, and it includes the greatest Kodak moments you could ever think of! “We welcome you to share in our joy,” the handwritten note on the website reads. “Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives,” signed “The Carter Family.” Continue reading

Well here is the gorgeous Beyonce singing to kids at a cancer center in Singapore. Looks like a great time was had by all and probably is what she wants to talk about instead of her Kanye and Dad’s recent transgressions. Source
She visited the kids in the cancer ward this afternoon before F1 in Singapore. (: It was really sweet of her. And the ward invited a few previous patients and a lot of current patients and their family to see her. She even signed a few autographs and went to talk to a few of the patients in the ward.
There were a lot of people singing along and screaming, it was so funny! The doctors and nurses I think were the most excited. 😉 There were a few people who even stood on the counters. LOL.
Sorry for the shaking, there was someone behind me who was pushing me. 😛 Also, I’m not going to disclose which hospital she visited because I’m afraid peole will start to swarm the place… *cough* But it’s a good hospital. I really like that hospital, all their nurses and doctors are really friendly and caring! 🙂
Not a good look for Mr.Knowles.
We’ve learned Alexsandra Wright filed the case in L.A. County Superior Court. Wright lives in L.A. — she works in the name-branding business. We’re told she’s in her late 30s.
Wright, who is 6-months pregnant, filed the case last week, alleges Knowles is the father. Sources say Wright is repped by Neal Hersh, who is currently repping Lamar Odom in the prenup negotiations with Khloe Kardashian.
Mathew has been married to Tina Knowles since 1980.
Mathew could not be immediately reached for comment. Ditto Neal Hersh.

Kelly Clarkson unsuccessfully fought her record label not to release “Already Gone” as the third single off her new album, as the music is the same as the music from Beyonce’s hit “Halo.”
Clarkson co-wrote the lyrics and was provided the track by producer Ryan Tedder who had, unbeknownst to her, given the same track to Beyonce. By the time Clarkson heard Halo and realized what had happened, her album had printed and shipped and it was too late to omit the track.
