I’ve been informed that Eve’s man is a billionaire. CONGRATS!!! :/
I’m a hater. I admit it. Eve is pregnant and I am hating because I am not the father. LOL! HAHAHAHA!!!! That is too funny to me. Anyway, she is supposedly pregnant if you look at whatMTOis saying. They are saying that Eve and her supposed boyfriend Max Cooper are now with child. Yep. Three months in, at that. Apparently there is a “close friend” that spilled the beans. But, why would a close friend do that? So its up for grabs, whether or not this is true or not.
Max has four other kids, apparently. Eve pregnant? “Dats that sh!t Stevie J don’t like!”
Super-producer Rick Rubin is sharing in on the success of Adele, who was recently named the first artist of the 21st century to receive a Diamond Award in less than two years.
Adele’s critically acclaimed album 21 was officially certified as having sold 10 million records, landing a Diamond Award certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
“We are thrilled to honor Adele with an RIAA Diamond Award marking her enormous 21 sales success,” said RIAA chairman/CEO Cary Sherman. “Selling more than 10 million albums in the United States, in less than two years, is an achievement unparalleled by any other artist in the past decade, let alone just a few in all of history. Adele’s unique talent is a gift to music fans, and her success is certainly cause for a celebration of Diamond magnitude.”
In the digital realm, eight of Adele’s songs have already amassed over 19 million downloads in the United States.
Rick Rubin, who is co-chairman of Columbia Records produced five of the songs on Adele’s hit album 21.
“She’s the real thing, and at a time when so much music is made through a more manufactured process, she is a self-contained, real artist who writes her songs and sings her songs and uses her vocal instrument in way we don’t get to hear a lot,”Rick Rubin told Billboard in June of 2011.
According to data released by the RIAA, Adele is the only British or European female solo act in history to earn an RIAA Diamond award.
According to the publication, the West Coast veteran roped in $110 million in pretax earnings largely thanks to his Beats headphone line. “The brands are so aligned, Dre and Beats, it’s just who he is,” says former Def Jam president Kevin Liles. “If you look at the biggest earners, the guys have been doing it for 20 years … what’s happening now is people are really telling their truth.”
Additional artists to make the cut include Rihanna, who ranks at No. 12 with $53 million, and Diddy, who ties with Katy Perry at No. 15 with $45 milion. Beyonce and Jay-Z come in at No. 18 and 20, respectively, with $40 million and $38 million. Kanye West makes the cut at No. 22 with $35 million, tying with Adele for the same position.

Joe Budden asks security to escort a concertgoer out of his show following a series of ill comments they made via Twitter.
A concertgoer in Oakland, California was unexpectedly escorted out of a Joe Budden show yesterday (November 28) after Tweeting about how “dead” it was at the New Jersey rapper’s concert. HipHopWired.com reports that the woman, who was attending the show with a friend, sent numerous Tweets expressing her disinterest with seeing Budden perform.
She even went so far as to post a picture of a package of NoDoz caffeine tablets on her Twitter page along with the caption, “For the Budden concert tonight.”
Budden somehow discovered the less than enthusiastic Tweets and reportedly informed security that he would not perform unless the woman was escorted from the venue.
"So we are upstairs at VIP [and the] security asks me if I'm Paige," said the woman via Twitter, according to HipHopWired.com. "I said, 'yes.' And they say 'Joe Budden wants you out. I feel flattered though, they said they showed my twitter picture and found me in the club."
The Slaughterhouse spitter has yet to respond to the incident via Twitter or through any other public outlet.
50 Cent says that his beef with Floyd Mayweather began over a $2 million debt.
While 50 Cent is hardly a stranger to beef, perhaps his most surprising feud in recent history involves his former friend and TMT Promotions partner Floyd Mayweather. Now, in a recent interview with Power 106 FM, Fif reveals the origins of his beef with the famed boxer.
According to Fif, the feud began over a $2 million debt Mayweather owes to Fiddy for starting their TMT Promotions company prior to Mayweather's recent prison sentence. Fif explained that after his release from jail, Mayweather neglected his debt to the rapper and instead spent his fortune on jewelry and cars. Eventually, tensions boiled over and Mayweather lashed out at the rapper on Twitter at the behest of his entourage.
"[Mayweather] changed his mind…as he was actually going in to jail, he asked me to help him with Mayweather Promotions," Fif recalled. "As he actually got in and I took a look, I realized there is no Mayweather Promotions: there's no LLC, there's no seals, there's no 'incorporated'…technically, Floyd is a Golden Boy fighter [for Oscar De La Hoya's promotion firm]. He fights on every Golden Boy card, they do all the footwork…so when he says, 'Help me with Mayweather Promotions,' and it's not there, I go, 'Okay, I know what he means: he wants me to put it together for him.' So I do TMT Promotions, I get it all the way together…he comes home, and there's the, 'Let's get Floyd back in pocket' campaign that goes on, where there's $300,000 chains being bought and buying him the new Lambourghini…and I'm sitting there going, 'When are you going to give me the money?'…It's about [$2 million owed] at that point. When he finally does bring up the actual situation, he acted like he didn't know anything. Like, 'I didn't tell y'all to do that.'"
He added, "That's not Floyd [on Twitter or Instagram dissing me]; Floyd don't Tweet…he's got somebody next to him. See, everybody around him is co-dependent, so they gonna roll with what he says regardless…they'll tell him what to say. As soon as he gets confused, he's gonna go, 'Okay, okay, um, just call out [50 Cent].'"
