Not really feeling the facial hair on Kanye at all. Maybe he is hoping that some sponsor will see him as a worthwhile figure to endorse their shaving products or razors or something. This was him back stage at the VMA Awards last night in Los Angeles where all sorts of odd things took place, Brit getting 3 VMAs, T Pain making his entrance on the back of an elephant, Fatman Scoop turning up in his draws, the list goes on and on.
After partying the night away at the VMAs over in Los Angeles last night, Weezy obviously didn’t mind how much it costs in gas to get him across country via private jet to make sure he kept his date this morning. He was due in court in Manhattan to answer charges relating to weapons posession this morning and surprisingly enough, he made it. I dont think the judge would have allowed him a pass after being seen all over the TV last night and then failed to show up today so Weezy gets the attendance star today.
OK so rumors are circulating that TI got a little heated with Rhianna’s boo Chris Brown when he interrupted he and Rhi Rhi’s rehearsal before the VMAs. Various media outlets are indicating that Brown had to be escorted from the stage area to avoid Tip getting a lil heated as he goofed about. However a source who was inside the staging area as Rhi and Tip rehearsed their duet had this to say,”There was no near face off, these gossip blogs be bugging the f**k out with this stuff man. Chris popped in to say what up and that was it, there was no cursing, no holding TI back.” The two performed TI’s new song Live your Life at the VMAs which took place in Los Angeles last night.
