Rumors are circulating that Kanye West might have to enroll for classes again, only this time of the Anger Management variety after his outbursts and tantrums have caused sponsors concern, wondering what he will do next according to a UK tabloid.  Are his tantrums really that serious that he needs to be put in time out?


Jay Z is def making more fans as he continues to rock stages all around the UK. Performing to a crowd of A List celebs and sports stars the Marcy Projects spokesman rocked a 30,000 crowd in London’s Hyde Park. He was supported by Mark Ronson and Brit bad girl Lily Allen, but Jigga was who the crowd wanted to see. Performing tracks from his catalogue of albums, Jay left fans ecstatic with his performance. He had fans screaming when he displayed a Union Jack on the backdrop. England is what Jay considers to be his ‘second home,’ and there are reports that he and wife Beyonce might be looking to spend more time in the UK and shopping for a lavish townhouse in the capital.He continues to play the UK with his next show in Bournemouth on July 15th.


After his little infomercial yesterday hit the web for Absolut Vodka with the Be Kanye skit, today the news in the World of the Louis Vuitton Don is that he is working on a shoe line with the elaborate French fashion house. The announcement was made while he was in Paris for the 2009 Vuitton Spring show. He has a name to live up to I guess. Be interesting to see what he comes up with.


This is how the good folks at Madame Tussauds see Tyra Banks who was unveiled into their DC collection yesterday. Way too demure looking for me really and this has to have been based around Tyra circa 2000 as I can’t remember the last time I saw those cheek bones.

99 PROBLEMS ….again

After the sun comes the rain right…well looking that way for Jay Z. His 99 Problems might have re-entered the singles charts again this week after his performance at Glastonbury this past weekend but his staff at the 40/40 Club in NYC are still bitching and moaning that the Jigga Man isn’t going to be nominated for Employer of the Month any time soon. But I gotta say this, the wait staff and everyone are complaining that they have to work for tips, but isn’t that the case in all NYC restaurants anyway. Working for an A Lister doesn’t mean A List wages folks..obviously. Anyhow this isn’t the first time people have been screaming on Jay about the wages down there, but remember Jay is not really the owner, he is just one of the money men involved when the shit hits the fan
