Straight out of Fayetteville Lo Keys drops a live freestyle on "the wire"


Ayyyyye! Now I’m loving this addition right here! Kem is cooler than the other side of the pillow and he can sang his booty off! The Universal Motown singer/songwriter KEM will make his big-screen acting debut in a remake of the 1976 film “Sparkle,” which is set in, and currently being filmed in, his hometown Detroit, Michigan.

KEM will play the part of club owner and Master of Ceremonies, ‘Buddy’ in the musical drama. Starring in the musical drama are Grammy® nominated and platinum recording artist Jordin Sparks (“American Idol” winner, Season 6), Multi-Grammy® Award winner Whitney Houston (The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale), Derek Luke (Antwone Fisher, Captain America: The First Avenger), Mike Epps (Jumping the Broom, Friday After Next), Carmen Ejogo (I, Alex Cross, Pride and Glory), Tika Sumpter (What’s Your Number?, “Gossip Girl”), Omari Hardwick (Kick Ass, The A-Team) and Grammy® Award winner, Cee-Lo Green.


Well, not exactly but she did just ink a deal with Cash Money! The “Basketball Wives” star has scored a six-figure deal to develop literary and feature film projects with CM’s publishing division, Cash Money Content. Her first project is a book she hinted at a while ago. According to The Hollywood Reporter…

“The Wives Association” (is) a book series to be co-authored by novelist and former Law & Order: Criminal Intent writer Courtney Parker. The books will be loosely based on Lozada’s life, using the alter ego Eve Inez-Landon to fictionalize the true stories she has learned from years of dating professional athletes.

“The stories that you hear—what goes on in these relationships, and just being in that circle—I decided to let everyone experience a piece of it for themselves by writing this series of juicy novels,” Lozada said.

Producer Shawty Redd Cleared Of All Charges In Murder Trial

MTV reports: Atlanta producer Shawty Redd (born Demetrius Lee Stewart) was charged with murder last year after a fatal shooting incident occurred at his Hampton, Georgia home on New Year’s Day 2010. The “Who Dat” producer was charged with the death of Damon Martin, but MTV News has learned exclusively that Redd has been found not guilty of murder and has been cleared of all other charges as well.

On Thursday (November 3) Redd’s attorney Ashutosh Joshi broke the news."The defense [in the trial] was clearly self-defense," Joshi told MTV. "We argued that Redd's life was threatened both verbally and physically, and this occurred in his home and that he shot this gentleman as a result of that."

The bench trial, which began Monday, was decided by a judge without a jury and concluded Wednesday. On Thursday, Judge Wade Crumbly cleared Stewart on all charges relating to Martin’s death

Shawty Redd got his start producing a number of underground tracks for Young Jeezy, as well as six tracks from his platinum debut Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101. He got the most attention working with Snopp Dogg on his 2008 single "Sexual Eruption" and has also worked with Gucci Mane, Pusha T and Rick Ross.

*Oxygen has announced the pickup of a reality series that will follow fashion model, actor, producer and television host Eva Marcille.

Tentatively titled the “Eva Marcille Project,” the show will not only chronicle “the hectic yet fabulous life” of the “America’s Next Top Model” champ and recent host of Oxygen’s “Hair Battle Spectacular,” but also her three best friends as they help each other deal with love, celebrity life and the entertainment industry in the glow of Hollywood’s spotlight.

Oxygen President Jason Klarman commented, “We continue to ramp up our original production and focus on the characters and relationship driven themes that speak to our audience.”

Marcille’s group of homegirls includes Denyce Lawton, an actress who starred in Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” on TBS, Nikki Chu, an interior and product designer who has designed for several celebrities and major brands and Kelly Marie Dunn, a talent and brand manager who has worked with A-list musicians and pop stars.

Oxygen has also greenlighted “LA Style,” a reality series that follows four young, hip Los Angeles-based celebrity stylists. These two docu-series join previously announced greenlights for “The Next Big Thing,” “Brooklyn Crew” and “Tanisha Gets Married.” All five series are scheduled to air on Oxygen in 2012.


The Black community’s discomfort with The Help, a film highlighting the racially charged events surrounding Black maids in a racist small town in Mississippi, is understandable, but the sheer hate is not. Before the film even had the chance to hit theaters, bloggers, angry reporters and anyone with access to a keyboard, bashed the film’s content. “Maids in 2011?” they sneered.

Actress Octavia Spencer, who plays Minnie, a sassy, fearless maid, has previously spoken out about the importance of the film’s characters, but her most recent comment is definitely food for thought.

“There are quite a few African American leading roles in a studio film. We’re not playing prostitutes. We’re playing women with great moral strength. Some of us have flawed characters. (laughs) Myself. So the fact that people were taking such a stance against the fact that we were playing maids is rather hurtful and it’s also a bit of denial. I’m glad the rest of the country didn’t listen and went out and supported the film because they wanted to. It was astonishing to me how we celebrate the debasement of African Americans playing drug dealers with low moral values but these two women who were just trying to make it and make a life for their family and make a difference in their community are not perhaps equally embraced by a few people in the African American community.”


OMG, this is kind of hilarious. Eddie Murphy recently sat down with Eurweb to discuss his comeback role in the film Tower Heist. He says in one of the scenes, available only on the DVD outtakes, he, Gabourey Sidebe and Ben Stiller get a little kinky. Of course, producer Brett Ratner was behind the impromptu scene.

Eddie says: Then he (Brett Ratner) whispered to the DP, ‘Dim the lights.’ Then I looked around and started thinking. And then all of a sudden Gabourey’s top is off. And it’s really heated. It’s really heated. It turns into a whole different type scene. I look over and Ben’s completely nude. And I look over at Brian and I go, ‘What’s happening? What’s happening?’ And Brian goes, ‘Just go with it.’ So we go with it for about forty minutes. It’s incredible. I’ve never ended a scene like that. Then you cut. You have to get the DVD actually to see the special features because we had to get our PG-13 rating. It was pretty heated.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! Gabby goes topless? Stiller was “swinging in the wind?” We just might have to get that DVD to see this madness!

Tower Heist hits theaters today!


Toni Braxton’s brother-in-law — who also stars on “Braxton Family Values” — has been released from the hospital after suffering a blood clot in his lungs … TMZ has learned.

Vince Herbert was rushed to a NY hospital two weeks ago … and the whole Braxton fam rallied around the music producer for support … even canceling important media events.

Sources close to the family tell TMZ Toni is extremely relieved … but she considers the situation a “wake-up call” to get her own health checked out more regularly … especially because she suffers from lupus.

And fear not “Braxton” fans … we’re told the fam is back in full publicity mode … gearing up for the new season to premiere next week.
