Drum-roll please…the new member of the ‘Single Ladies’ crew is …Denise Vasi!

When it was announced that Stacey Dash would not be returning to the set of Single Ladies for a second season, speculation began immediately as to who would fill her shoes. VH1 is excited to announce that veteran actress Denise Vasi is the woman for the job. Vasi has been cast as Raquel, a business woman and friend of Keisha’s. Her previous television credits include All My Children, White Collar, and she appeared in the featured When In Rome and What’s Your Number? Season two of Single Ladies will premiere in the summer of 2012.

Is Astro What The Game's Been Missing? Confident 15-Year Old Thinks He Is "I Just Want To Save Hip Hop, That's My Job" Addresses Rumors He's Signing With Jay-Z

When 15-year old Brian Bradley aka The Astronomical Kid was voted off of X-Factor last week he didn't take it as hard as some might have expected given how hard he had worked to make into the top seven.

One reason he might have been able to accept his fate much better than Drew, who cried throughout the elimination show, is because he was never expected to make it that far. X-Factor is a show designed to find America's next big singer, not rapper.

"I’m happy. I wish everyone [on the X Factor] the best of luck," Astro told the New York Daily News. “Now, I could just release music. I know I’m going to be the next big hip-hop artist. I just want to save hip-hop . . . that’s my job.”

One rumor that has been floating around is that Astro is close to signing a deal with Jay's Roc Nation imprint.

“I couldn’t tell you anything. I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said. “I’m not focused on the labels, I just got home. I’m just trying to make great music.”

Rapper And Alleged Informant Tommy ''Butta'' Hill Shot And Killed During Apparent Robbery In Philly

Philadelphia rap star Tommy Hill - a key member of the group RAM Squad - died Sunday morning, two days after being shot in an apparent robbery outside an East Mount Airy bar, police sources said.

Police say that on Friday around 1:30 a.m., a 36-year-old man was met in the parking lot outside by the bar's manager after he left the establishment without paying.

Just as the man was about to hand the manager money, authorities say he was approached by three masked gunmen.

Its reported that one of the gunmen allegedly aimed his weapon at the man while the other two grabbed him and pushed him to the ground. The manager told police that he backed away as the suspects began rooting through the man's pockets. Police tell the Inquirer that the manager then heard a gunshot, prompting him to pull out his own gun. The gunmen began firing at the manager who returned fire. A security guard from the bar joined the manager and began to shoot at the gunmen as well, according to investigators.

Police say one of the gunmen then fled down Mount Pleasant Avenue, another through the rear driveway of the parking lot and the third up Stenton Avenue towards Mount Airy Avenue.

Neither the manager nor the security guard were harmed during the shootout. The victim, however, was struck in the chest and lower body. He was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition. Police say he died from his injuries early Sunday morning.

Hill, whose given name was John Wilson, had been living in Atlanta since serving two years in prison on federal drug charges and since the RAM Squad's breakup.

Hill launched his career in the late 1990s with the help of former mob boss Joseph "Skinny Joey" Merlino, and federal authorities later pressured him to cooperate with investigations into drug dealing and City Hall corruption.

He told the Inquirer police last year he had rebuffed those overtures, but he testified in 2004 against a trio of Kensington crack dealers accused of amassing an arsenal of weaponry to protect their turf.

Hill, 36, began serving his prison sentence that same year for selling crack.

"When he came out, I had a long talk with him about what I thought he needed to do to straighten out his life," said Bernie Resnick, an entertainment lawyer who had worked with Hill since the late 1990s. "He was listening, or at least I thought he was listening."

Resnick, who said he learned of Hill's death from another client, said he told Hill to work in the background as a songwriter, promoter, and marketer of new talent. Hill appeared to have been following that advice - he started a company, 34th Floor Entertainment, and worked mostly with artists in Atlanta and North Carolina.

"Because of the nature of the testimony he gave . . . he was going to have a target on his back for a very long time," Resnick said. "Of course, Tommy had trouble doing anything in the background."

Tommy was most recently known for his online attacks of fellow Philly rapper Beanie Sigel. In one clip, he can even be seen in front of top Sigel’s New Jersey apartment taunting the rapper.

Besides that he was arrested and accused of assaulting a woman and stealing her purse in Atlanta this past February.

Local Rapper Tommy Hill Died After Shooting Outside Bar:


Looks like Madonna will heat up the XLVI super bowl halftime show on February 5th. Both the NFL and NBC announced the pop star’s performance on Sunday night.

The pop icon follows last year’s AMAZING Black Eyed Peas performance, so she definitely has her work cut out for her. Maybe she’ll accidentally lose her pasty like Janet. I’d say it’s about time to feature a naked body part on primetime TV again.


Bradley Cooper has confirmed “The Hangover” cast is set to reunite for a second sequel set in Los Angeles.

The actor shot to international fame with his role in the 2009 Las Vegas-based comedy opposite Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha, and a follow-up, The Hangover Part II, set in Thailand, was released earlier this year.

Cooper has now revealed filming on the third installment should begin next September and he believes the film will be set in California.

He tells TV host Graham Norton, “I hope we’ll start shooting next September. I know (director) Todd Phillips is working on the script. We stuck to the formula in the second one but the third would need to close the trilogy. I think it’ll take place in L.A. and not adhere to the structure.”
