Is Rihanna a Curse for Her Baseball Boyfriend?

Rihanna_Matt_Kemp_curse.jpg

The media is turning the relationship between pop star Rihanna and her baseball boyfriend Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers into a spectacle. Ripping a page right out of the Jessica Simpson/Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys play book, the blogosphere is speculating that the outfielder is in a slump because he is distracted by his famous girlfriend. Kemp is hitting only .196 this month, and his defensive play has slipped, too.

A few years back, the media accused singer Simpson of being a hex on her quarterback boyfriend, Romo, who broke up last summer. It must be a slow news day when these stories surface.

Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj Big Winners At BET Awards

niki_minaj_alicia_keys.jpg

Billboard News
Alicia Keys and newcomer Nicki Minaj were the big winners at the 10th annual BET Awards, both taking home two statuettes during the ceremony held last night (June 27) at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. However, the evening's real buzz centered around several captivating performances/comebacks, most notably Chris Brown's surprise return to the BET stage in an emotional dance tribute marking the one-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death.

Silhouetted behind a large screen, Brown was greeted by appreciative cheers from a standing Shrine audience as he took to the stage, gliding and moonwalking across the floor to several Jackson classics including "Billie Jean" and "Smooth Criminal." Then he became choked up and unable to sing the final song in the tribute, "Man in the Mirror." Returning to the stage to accept the AOL Fandemonium award, Brown told the audience, "I let you all down before, but I won't do it again. I promise." Brown had been slated to appear at last year's BET Awards but did not appear then in the wake of his domestic violence case involving Rihanna.

Tarrus Riley petitions for peace with new single

tarrus_riley_peace.jpgTalented Jamaican Singer and Songwriter Tarrus Riley delivers a powerful socio-conscious message renouncing the scourge of violence on his latest release 'Wildfire'.

Teaming up with hard hitting producer Don Corleone, Riley's petition for peace hits a sincere note as he pleads to a higher power to protect his nation against the rising levels of violence. His chorus to "protect the people" comes on the heels of recent calls by several Jamaicans at home and across the Diaspora to take a stand against crime, "Wildfire speaks directly to existing social issues in Jamaica, the kind of issues we need to address head on. I want my listeners to understand the realities we are dealing with in our nation as well as call on each one to support their brother as we reclaim our land".

Now in heavy rotation across local and Caribbean airwaves, Riley recently concluded shooting the corresponding video and is expected to debut it in coming weeks.

Cherine Gets Busy For Cancer Survivors

Young Jamaicans Represent for Cancer Survivors

cherine_cancer.jpgSinger and Songwriter Cherine will be singing a slightly different tune this weekend. On Saturday June 26th Cherine, who takes on the hat of Team Captian, will mobilize a passionate and driven group of young Dancehall- SOULdiers (members of Team Dancehall Soul), to help raise funds for cancer awareness, research and outreach at Jamaica Cancer Society's Relay For Life.

With several activities planned, Anderson is excited about the prospects. All proceeds of Cherine's EP's "The Introduction-Dubstyle" sold at the event will go towards the outreach efforts.

No stranger to giving back to her community, Cherine started her own Reach-One Child Foundation in 2003 and has been helping need-based students with supplies and partial tuition scholarships. Working with the cancer society is a first for Anderson. In addition, she is aware of the seriousness of cancer as well as its effects on patients and their families. Cherine adds "My sister Natoya was the one who told me about the event. We lost both our grandmother's to the battle but on a positive note, I know many more people who are survivors. Early detection gives everyone a better chance at fighting this thing so I am committed to doing all I can to help with the JCS's outreach initiative especially for people who can't afford to be screened and tested."

Tiger Woods is not my grandson's dad and I have DNA test as proof, porn star Devon James' mom claims

By Corky Siemaszko
Daily News Staff Writer

tiger_woods_jacket_child.jpg

The Tampa tart who claims Tiger Woods fathered her cub might want to muzzle her mom.

She threw a wrench in porn actress Devon James' plans to get the golfer to admit he fathered her now 9-year-old son by announcing Friday that the boy's real daddy is an ex-con - and she has the DNA report to prove it.

"Tiger Woods is not the father of Austin, my daughter's child," Sandra Jane Brinling told Inside Edition. "And that's what Tiger Woods needs to know."

Brinling spoke out a day after James filed papers in Florida under her real name, Melinda Janette, asking a judge to "establish paternity" of her son - and named Woods as the respondent.

James made the move after TMZ.com reported that a DNA test done eight years ago on her son proved another man was his daddy.

The TMZ account is "false," a source close to the 29-year-old escort told the Daily News on Thursday.

"The DNA test done in 2001 was on a man who is a white guy, a complete white guy," the source said. "His name is Matt. The test showed he is not the father, and Tiger has never taken a DNA test."

Etana Supports Soul Rebellion's School Building Initiative

etana_soul_rebbelion1.jpgA humble and soulful Etana made her presence felt through a dynamic performance in Negril, Jamaica recently. Etana delivered a near one hour set with nothing short of stunning and electrifying music. She was in command with high-energy while the watching faces lit up with approval. The event dubbed “One Show, One School, One Love” is one part of a charity initiative which seeks to raise well needed funds to build and invest in education across several schools in Jamaica

The soul rebellion promoters also accumulate funds through their ‘Buy- A- Block’ initiative. Individuals purchase blocks, which they autograph and the funds are then diverted to school building projects. Its most recent project aids the Orange Bay Basic School in Hanover, Westmoreland. By improving the conditions of Jamaican schools, ‘Soul Rebellion’s mantra is to ultimately foster education.

Alliance deejay Bling Dawg is just a few months away from becoming a member of the Father's Club.

The 36 year old deejay has been attacked by several artistes who poked fun at him for not "breeding any gal". Out of all the deejays that poked fun at Bling Dawg in their songs the ones that connected the most were done by Vybz Kartel.
In the song "When Since" Vybz Kartel deejayed. "B*tty bowy bling still caan get a pickney, tru him bl**dclaat tongue too frisky". While in the song "A Wha Duh Dem”, he penned, "look at Bling Dawg if you want to know what a fag be,
di gal dem seh di bredda c*cky not working,
suh dem calling in pon Mutty Perkins,
Seh him a big 40-year-old virgin.

Now that Bling Dawg's longtime girlfriend is expecting a little one then the lyrics above can no longer be directed at Bling Dawg.

'Bling Dawg Summer Jam'

Residents from Bling Dawg's home town (Portland) can start preparing themselves for Bling Dawg Summer Jam which will be held on July 10, at Somerset Falls. Already several top acts have been billed for the show they are Bounty Killer, Mavado, Munga Honourebel, Busy Signal, Assassin, Aidonia, Tarrus Riley, Wayne Marshall, Spice, Bugle, Stacious and Serani.

Dancehall Producers and Artistes Take the 21st/Hapilos Highway To Success!

johnny_wonder_hapilos.jpgKingston, Jamaica -- As the reggae-dancehall economic landscape continues to slip and slide, industry-insiders have been utilizing a number of marketing strategies, including digital distribution to attract sales for their riddims and songs.

Dancehall designer and producer, Romeich Major, owner of Romeich Records and whose well-known Bank Inna Pocket Riddim has been doing extremely well locally says, "I've found that online distribution helps us save a lot of money and hassle, because we don't have to deal with the cost of getting CDs done, we simply have them marketed online by a distribution company like 21st/Hapilos."

Dancehall producer Linton "TJ" White, owner of TJ Records spoke similarly and continued by saying, "One of the things I noticed is that us, artistes or producers, sometimes only focus on the local market and forget to market the songs overseas, and buying the songs online is easier for people in other parts of the world. So far it's been going great."

Devon said, when she got pregnant she was 19 years old and Tiger and she met Christian School program. To prove this allegation she never had a DNA test, but she says Tiger was the only African American man she dated at that time.

On the other hand, Devon James’ mother says, her daughter is lying about this whole thing and Tiger Woods is not the father of that boy. She even said, James is a pathological liar, she knows who is the dad for Austin. James is out there just to lie and steal money, now all that she wants is money from Tiger Woods, she said.

Tiger Woods is again in trouble withe one more gossip about him, only he can clarify if this is true or not. But, no one would not trust his words after having so many affairs even after being married. Time will tell what is right and what is not, we are nobody to judge anyone just because someone is saying something about him or her.

Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber Walk Hand-in-Hand on the Beach

By Tim Nudd
People.com

Kim%20Kardashian%20and%20Justin%20Bieber.jpgSorry, Justin Bieber fans. Seems your boy is still hanging out with Kim Kardashian.

The teen pop sensation posted a photo Sunday of himself with the reality-TV star - with her holding a flower - taken on the beach during a photo shoot at the Atlantis Resort in The Bahamas.

"Photoshoot on the beach ... ummmm yeah. I told her to watch out ... I love my fans," Bieber, 16, wrote on Twitter.

Kardashian, 29, then posted her own photo showing her running her hands through Bieber's famous locks. "My dream! I messed up Justin Bieber's hair!!!" she Tweeted.

Some Bieber fans will surely get riled up by the images, having already strongly objected to Bieber's friendship with Kardashian after they met at the White House Correspondents' dinner in May.

Kardashian, who admitted to having "Bieber Fever" at the time, said she even received death threats. Bieber tried to calm things down, calling Kardashian "a very sexy friend but a friend. No need 4 threats. Let's all be friends and hang out often."

Chris Brown Denied Visa Over Rihanna Beating, UK Tour Postponed

chris_brown_sad_tour.jpgLONDON (CBS/AP) There's never a right time to say goodbye.

Those lyrics from Chris Brown's 2005 self-titled debut album could be the mantra for the R&B singer's international touring woes, after Great Britain denied him entry. According to the Associated Press, the British government's Home Office rejected Brown's visa request due to his previous criminal record.

Brown, 21, was convicted of beating his former girlfriend, R&B songstress Rihanna, prior to the 2009 Grammy Awards. Last year he was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community service.

Brown was scheduled to perform in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London. Tuesday, promoter SJM Concerts informed the public that Brown's tour was postponed "due to unforeseen circumstances." However, SJM prompted fans to hold on to tickets.

They seem to be holding out hope that at some point Brown will get to say goodbye to the U.S. and hello to the U.K., to sing his signature tune for British fans.

Macka Diamond - "A Brazil mi ting dey"

macka_diamond_world_cup.jpg

With all the rave in the sporting arena being about the much anticipated 2010 FIFA World Cup Competition, the premier international football tournament, scheduled to take place between June 11th and July 11, 2010 in South Africa, it comes as no surprise that Jamaica and the entire dancehall community is revved up and ready to go; but what is surprising, is just how involved the females are; namely, The Money Goddess herself, Macka Diamond.

"A Brazil mi ting dey, if anuh Brazil a mus Argentina," states Macka who was quick to make it clear that she wasn't just familiar with the names of teams, but was familiar with even the coaches, history and specific players.

"I wish I was going to South Africa," declared Macka in a rather disappointed tone, but was fast on the draw with, "but dat nah go stop me from watching as much of the games as I can, because this World Cup is going to go down in history as the greatest one yet!"

Spoken like a true fanatic, but only time will tell if Macka is on the money with her predications, but one thing is for sure, Macka like so many of her co-workers, are geared up and ready for kick off.

Beenie Man Charged for Assaulting L.A Lewis - Granted $250,000 Bail

OutAroad.com Writer

Beenie Man was released from the Hunts Bay Police station yesterday evening after he was granted bail in the sum of $250,000.

The Grammy Award winning artiste Beenie Man has been charged with assault after he allegedly punched Jamaica's #1 graffiti artiste L.A Lewis in the jaw.

Several years ago both Beenie Man and L.A Lewis had a serious rumble during which Beenie broke his hand after punching Lewis in the face. However, the two recently had a rematch with an almost similar verdict which leaves L.A Lewis nursing injuries once again while Beenie Man escaped broking his arm again.

Beenie Man is now on a plane heading for Europe where he will be doing a short European tour. He’s scheduled to appear in court shortly after his tour.

Lil Kim vs. Nicki Minaj Feud Gets Ugly

By Henry Adaso

nicki_minaj_lil_kim_vs.jpg

I've tried to ignore this feud, but it just won't go away. First, Lil Kim tossed some nasty barbs at her doppelganger Nicki Minaj. Drake fired back on behalf of his labelmate. Now Kim is dissing Diddy, who happens to be her former boss and Minaj's current manager. Is your head spinning yet?

Is it an ego issue? You bet it is. "It's all about respect," Kim says in this YouTube video. Huh? Respect? Nicki Minaj has paid Lil Kim the utmost respect by emulating Kim in more ways than I count. It's almost embarrassing how much of Kim's swag Nicki has jacked at this point. She dresses like Lil Kim, raps like Lil Kim, and even went as far as reenacting Queen Bee's Notorious KIM album cover in a photoshoot. Imitation, they say, is the biggest form of flattery. Lil Kim is exactly what Nicki Minaj wants to be when she grows up.

Lil Kim hasn't had a relevant record in years. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj has been gathering reams of buzz ever since she signed with Lil Wayne's Young Money. By hurling insults at the younger, flashier version of herself, Kim comes off as a cantankerous ol' head who's simply envious of Minaj's success. And that thought is bizarre, since it's Kim who has the platinum plaques and enviable catalog that Minaj could only dream of for now.

I have an idea. Ladies, take this to the studio and let the music do the talking.

American rapper Nicki Minaj broke throughin 2008, but Web rumors are that before she hit it big, she made a sex tape. Now the tape is reportedly for sale for (gulp) $100,000.

The sex tape is rumored to be full of Nicki "doing all kinds of freaky stuff". This rumor is gathering even more steam than the one about her wearing butt pads, which she totally denies.

You'll be able to check her butt pads out on the upcoming BET Awards, since she's nominated four times. However, she's up against Justin Bieber for Best New Artist. Better luck next time, Nicki. Beating the Biebs may be tough.

Snapped: Chris Brown looking hot in Miami & more…

chris_brown_sexy_miami.jpgWell, damn. Chris Brown certainly is growing up to be one fiiiine young man. And he IS a man now, for the older female admirer (myself included). His younger female fans will be glad to know that the singer officially declared himself a single fella yesterday on his Twitter. The 21-year-old was snapped last night (May 27th) at the Mia Ultra Lounge (Mia at Biscayne) which was hosted by Fast Life Fast Money.

Breezy is also on his way to the Islands. In July, he’ll be jetting off to Jamaica for his very first time performing at a Reggae Sumfest gig. Reportedly, he will grace the same stage as Sumfest favourites such as Shaggy and Beenie Man, just to name a few. Reggae Sumfest starts on July 18th and continues on until the 24th.

Peep some more sexy flicks after the jump.

Jamaican Manhunt May Target 'Passa Passa' Parties

ding_dong_passa_passa.jpgIt's been about a week since Jamaican authorities blasted into Tivoli Gardens, the stronghold of Christopher "Dudus" Coke who is wanted in the U.S. for drug trafficking. Coke is no where to be found.

But now authorities have got their sights trained on a new target: "Passa Passa," the famous outdoor dance parties that Coke and his friends used to frequent, along with most everyone else in Tivoli Gardens.

The fabled parties are where Jamaica's newest dancehall tunes are played well to the crack of dawn.

Jamaican police are only talking about ending them between midnight and 2 a.m. But the mere suggestion of reining in the parties at a press conference last week with Jamaica's top military and police brass drew murmurs from a crowd of local Kingston reporters, and even a couple hisses. The police said it would be an uphill battle: Riots might break out, one frustrated official admitted into the microphone.

Passa Passa started up around 2003 in Kingston and takes place on the capital's streets as throngs of young Jamaicans dance to the island's up-and-coming artists of "dancehall," a genre that fuses traditional reggae with hip-hop, electronica and R&B beats, among other influences.

Nick Cannon: Mariah Carey Will Confirm Pregnancy "Personally"

mariah_carey_connon.jpgIt's a mother's prerogative: Mariah Carey will announce her pregnancy on her own timetable, not anyone else's.

A pal recently confirmed to Us Weekly that the diva, 41, is "in the early stages of pregnancy," but wants to wait until after the first trimester to share the news.

PHOTOS: Adorable snaps of stars familes' newest arrivals

Yet even her husband of two years Nick Cannon let it slip on May 30 when chatting with fans in Malibu. "Her bump is bigger," he gushed. "You can almost see it now...I'm very excited!"

But Cannon, 29, is now defending his wife's silence on the subject. "If & when my wife is ready to make ANY announcements about private matters she will do it personally," he wrote on Twitter Wednesday night. "Thanks for being respectful GodBless."

3 Kingz For The Ladies

3kingz_group.jpg3 Kingz, the new Jamaican group to emerge from the city of Kingston, consisting of three members: Ramone, Curt and Craig bringing to the tables a mixture of melodies, harmonies and hardcore Jamaican flows.

Being raised in Jamaica their whole lives amongst each other, they have been together through most if not all turning points in their lives and always had a strong interest for music. Determined to let their voices be heard, they strive towards excellence as the youths of proud parents. Curt and Craig are related by blood and Ramone being so close to the family that blood would make him no closer than he has become. They shared the true meaning of brotherly hood. Curt and Ramone, being childhood friends, went through highschool together in Jamaica writing songs, and expressing their talents amongst their peers. They both had the interest of producing and composing music for years while singing for the fun of it not realizing it would grow to be something way pass their expectations, and Craig was a determined “deejay” focused on carrying out the sounds and melodies of the hardcore, retro, dancehall music being greatly influenced by Super Cat.
