lebron-james-doesnt-just-like-he-loves-the-new-lebron-12-shoes-from-nike

Forbes and it’s annual ranking has unveiled the top sports brands. For the third year straight Nike sits at the top and is worth about $19 billion. That $19 billion is a $2 billion dollar increase from 2013, and $2.5 billion more than ESPN. The question is who is responsible for keeping Nike on it’s throne? That answer is LeBron James. Sources say for the first time since 2007 someone other than Tiger Woods is at the top , and LeBron’s brand is worth about $37 million and brought in $53 million OFF the court last year alone from endorsements with McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Upper Deck, and Nike. The LeBron 12 was supposed to be released in October but due to cosmetic issues the shoe will be released sooner than later.

twitter-logo

Twitter is now suing the Department of Justice and FBI for the right to release information on the government’s surveillance of it’s users. The goal for the lawsuit is to achieve more flexibility regarding what the company can say about the government requesting personal information of Twitter users. Twitter Inc. claims their First Amendment rights are violated by being prohibited to share the number of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court orders the receive to give out personal information for national security reasons. Back in April Twitter sent their Transparency Report to the FBI but the Department of Justice rejected the report because disclosing information on national security letters is prohibited by federal law.

Fraud

A woman out of Georgia has been accused of filing a fake Georgia state tax return. Brigitte Jackson filed a return claiming she was owed over $94 million dollars. LOL! She never got her check and contacted the state revenue about the delay. After some calls were made agents cut her a check and told her to go to a bank inside of a supermarket to cash it. The entire tax sting was caught on tape. Jackson’s cousin Darrius White also allegedly reported $99 million in income and has been charged. Did they really think they would get away with this???

drake4

Is Drake in hot water??? Well a well known stripper named Jhonni Blaze claims that after her and Drake spent the night together she was then threatened. The Houston stripper has accused Drake and his team of threatening her life after a sexual encounter the two had. Sources are reporting that police have launched and investigation around the accusations that Jhonni was threatened because Drake’s people were worried she would go blabbing to the media. Allegedly Drake’s people from his camp were sent to her house to threaten her. Jhonni Blaze is unsure if she wants to press charges. Another side to this story circulating is that Jhonni might be pregnant with his child…but you should know not to believe everything you hear by now… moving on..

Jordin-Sparks-Jason-Derulo-split

More break ups continue to emerge as “Cuffing Season” has arrived! Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo reportedly have broken up and gone their separate ways. The two have been dating since September 2011 and were engaged last year but the two just couldn’t hold on any longer *cues awwws*. Sources say that Jason has been seen with a side chick by the name of Carmen Ortega. Although I have seen pictures of the two you never really know what is going on. Sources say that Jordin knew about the affair but decided to stay with Jason because he was her first. Girl ….

wizzzz

Wiz Khalifa finally speaks on his divorce! Pretty much Wiz is saying the divorce was over before Amber Rose caught him with another woman in bed. His statement clearly was “I just didn’t want to be married to her anymore.” Wiz doesn’t really believe he was cheating and explains how he already told his friends weeks before that the marriage was over. Amber is trying to earn over a million dollars from Wiz from a prenuptial agreement the two signed prior to marriage, she also wants full legal and physical custody of their one year old child Sebastian. Do you think telling your friends your marriage is over prior to divorcing justifies cheating??? Chile…

ja-rule1

Ja Rule says men wearing shirt- skirts is part of Hip Hop now! I know you have seen the fashion changing or repeating itself all the time, but lately in Hip Hop men have taken things a new route and embrace some sort of “feminization.” With male rappers wearing kilt skirts, painting their nails, using new words, and wearing shirt-skirts from a distance you might think something off the wall. Ja Rule addresses this topic and says “You know what? If You wanna shirt-skirt, go head get you a shirt skirt. Cause this is your generation.” Ja Rule says he does look back at some of his old pictures and wonder what the hell he was wearing then but he says it is apart of being young and growing up. Ja also adds that he doesn’t think this generation is looking at it as “feminine” but more so “fashionable.” Honey I’m all for fashion and please believe I am all for anybody expressing themselves through clothing, but grown men just should not be painting their nails anything but clear. I’m not even sure I’m okay with clear. LOL!

loveandhiphop

Love and Hip Hop Season 3 came to a close last night and the reunion show still ended with some drama. Part 3 of the reunion pretty much shows talks after fights with different perspectives. Benzino and Althea get a chance to discuss their views on their fall out from Stevie J and Joseline but Benzino kept coaching Althea to say “No Comment.” Joseline expresses that she will “beat your ass” male or female if she feels some type of way when she is upset and Stevie J asks Joseline to tell the producers that they are married. Hmm…anyway MiMi still defends her sex tape with Nikko and the audience and cast alone with viewers at home all voted and felt Nikko released the sex tape himself. Season 3 was full of drama but you just couldn’t help but watch..until next time!

chrisbrown

Okay so Chris Brown is on the cover of Billboard magazine! Pretty much Chris has come to the realization that his past actions were pretty bad on his character and his music. The headline on the magazine reads “Maybe I Was Out Of Control.” and Chris goes on to elaborate on jail, Rihanna, and his new album X coming soon. Chris was quoted saying …

“I realize that what I do for a living opens my life to public scrutiny and that I have a responsibility to everyone because of that exposure… I can say that I am only human and I have made mistakes. I can say that I try to live my life in the most true, honest way that I can. I am not perfect, no one is. No one is harder on me than me. No one can please everyone. No one can live in the past and expect to grow. I have been moving forward and hope that I am not defined by just a few moments in my life but all of the moments that will make up my life.”

Chris will be releasing his sixth studio album X on September 16th!

migossssss

The Migos are living up to their song “Fight Night” after getting into a brawl with fans at a recent show in Nashville.

thisis50

We all know G-Unit is back together now with the exception of The Game and Olivia. 50 Cent decided to air out his former member Olivia by saying that she used to sleep with Missy Elliot. 50 decided to go on The Breakfast Club and during his sit down the Queens native told Charlamagne ..

“Nah, I didn’t have no problem. Missy started hitting it. If you really wanna know. See, it’s her fault for actually saying that to you. Trust me.”

50 sure knows how to stay relevant. Check his recent interview with G-Unit HERE!! <–

To sum up what has been going on with Kevin Durant..his contract with Nike expired and Under Armour offers KD a huge about of money to sign with them. Nike has the chance to resign Kevin but has to match Under Armour’s offer. Nike was taking their time until Jay Z added pressure to Nike to hurry up with their offer. Nike matches the offer, Kevin Durant resigns with Nike for a cool $300 million dollar contract. Kevin Durant is signed to Jay Z under Roc Nation Sports which is why the story is amazing. Now adding to the amazement Nike is also offering Durant $25 million dollars after he retires. Perfect timing while KD’s new sneaker hits stores on September 10th!

Honey did you see the 2014 MTV VMA’s last night????? If you didn’t you missed a good eye blessing! Let’s get right on into it…kicking the show off was Ariana Grande with her song Break Free and then transitioned into Nicki Minaj performing Anaconda! Nicki came out in what looked like an ode to Poison Ivy. There was no six foot long anaconda that was rumored to be out during the set, but there sure was a WHOLE lot of BACK from BABY …OKAY?! Next after Anaconda came “Bang Bang” and Jessie J proceeded to sing her heart out with Ariana Grande, but this time Nicki Minaj had a wardrobe malfunction which she held together very nicely. There was a ghost whispering some where saying “let it go” as she held on to her dress for dear life.

The evening was pretty much decent. I must give an applause to Iggy Azalea for not moving around to much. Nobody really wants to see her dancing so her team did a good job of keeping that toned down. Iggy sticks to poses when she performs. Chile….moving on Usher came out dancing like a machine honey. I wanted to jump into tv land and give him oxygen myself. The R&B singer delivered a great performance of She Came To Give It To You and brought Nicki out for the feature.

Is is just me or did Rita Ora seem very “hype” last night? Wonder what that was all about. Taylor Swift gave some yawns although the crowd loved her performance. There could have been more excitement, and what’s with people wearing leotards. At one point I thought I was watching gymnasts at the Olympics. A great highlight from last night had to have been Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels serving Dumb and Dumber.

There were some moments when the urban community probably turned the channel but everyone was anticipating the Beyonce performance. Beyonce came through and did songs off of her album but teased everyone with not even 10 seconds of Flawless remix which would have been the best part of the night for the women. Beyonce pranced on stage, threw her hair, and let everyone know who Queen B is. Of course MTV put the camera on Blue Ivy and Jay Z during Beyonce’s performance and you could see that Blue is the spitting image of both of her parents but don’t you think shes really starting to look more like Jay Z now? Anyway Jay Z presented his wife with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award and had Blue Ivy on his arm.

beyoncevma

The two kissed to show the world their marriage is fine but it kind of seemed awkward like the Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley kiss that seemed like a publicity stunt.

…….Remember that? Beyonce teared up when she accepted the award, said a few words and dashed off the stage. Chile…I needed more drama and scandal but I was satisfied with what I saw! Mtv you sure did come through! Yasssss!
