Kanye covered and did an exclusive interview with XXL Magazine. Yeezy was the first to ever write his own cover story. Also, he was given the title of Creative Director of a 40 page section for XXL's collector's edition issue. Here's a small excerpt from his interview with XXL. For more, be on the look out for this issue to hit stands on September 28th!

“I stress that the incident wasn’t about Taylor personally. And it definitely wasn’t about race. Where I messed up is, at the end of the day, it’s your show, Taylor. It’s your show, MTV. The relationship with the public and with your fans is like the relationship with your girlfriend. How could I not, at a certain point, be like, ‘I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have been at the awards show. I’m sorry.’ Not that I don’t deserve to get beat up or change who I am inside, to make sure that that doesn’t happen again."

“I knew I wasn’t in a great spot publicly after the incident, but I would just block it out and work as hard as possible and let my work be my saving grace. In a way, I had thrown a Molotov cocktail at my own career, and it gave me an opportunity, for the first time, to go away and find out who I was. Because I felt very alone.”
The autographed picture of Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash in the lobby of the Sunset Marquis hotel in West Hollywood makes clear that more than a few rock stars have had more than a few crazy nights there. Tonight, though, the hotel is tranquil, and the star ensconced within is the same. Kid Cudi's demeanor on this summer evening in August is a far cry from what you'd expect, based on everything that's happened to the 26-year-old rapper since we sat down with him last year. Getting into scuffles with fans, being arrested in June for possession of cocaine and criminal mischief—true to his newest alter ego, Mr. Rager has indeed been ragin', though it's hard to reconcile that whirlwind of controversy with the leather pants-clad young man emerging from the lobby. We're going house-shopping with him in the Hollywood Hills (he ends up copping a plush two-story where Fred Durst and others have laid their fitteds), and he wants to confirm with a realtor that he can install custom lights. A successful album and an HBO show have treated him well, clearly.

Afterward, we settle back in his black-on-black SUV and go over everything: the good (his highly anticipated sophomore album, Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager), the bad (the night he spent in jail, which Cudi will explain was a far more serious wake-up call than he'd get at the Sunset Marquis), and the ugly (his drug use throughout the past year). As we talk, the tattoo on his forearm flexes occasionally; a person's head, split in two, divided into sides labeled GOOD and BAD. And given Cudder's year, we can't imagine a more fitting image. There's a rift between thought and action, ideal and real—and sometimes it threatens to grow so wide that a man can get lost in it. But we hope not.
Complex: Forgive me, but we gotta start with some controversy. In "Mojo So Dope," you say that you "live through words, not metaphors, so I pass to be the rest of the freshmen." What did you mean by that line?

Kid Cudi: I didn't want anybody to take it the wrong way, because it wasn't a dis. But most of the rappers that everyone loves are rappers that use metaphors. That's not my style of rap. I like to rhyme in a more poetic way. Sometimes you don't have to use these...witty ways of trying. It just sounds like somebody is overselling shit.

Complex: You're big on not having your music compared to anyone else's

Kid Cudi: Did you see that Wale interview that he just did, comparing us to sports? Let me clear this up: I'm incomparable to anybody. I don't care how people take that. No one can compete with me. I'm unfuckwittable; no one can knock me off my shit. I'm an unstoppable force, I'm a bullet. My trajectory is to the sky. Niggas got to do something really spectacular to fuck with me and my realm, and niggas be so bitter that you hear it in their voice.

Complex: Speaking of Wale, when you hit that fan at your show last December, he came out with a line about it ["Throwin' 'round wallets like the dude that Kid Cudi hit," from "Thank You Freestyle"].

Kid Cudi: It wasn't a shot, it's just a simple-ass rhyme by a simple-ass rapper. You can't let that shit faze you. That's one of those raps that just shows the world that you wack. Why would you even use that as a metaphor? Everybody think they Hov. Niggas ain't got the magic like they think they do; there's only a couple of wizards in this game. I'm a wizard and I know it.

Complex: Are your peers not seeing that?

Kid Cudi: The last album, I let people dis me, throw out those jabs in their verses and have their little slick remarks. This time around, I'm not fucking around. I have no time to think about other niggas. These other motherfuckers like feeding off another nigga's energy, so they mention their name. You hear me talk about niggas? I don't even talk about Kanye, and that's my homeboy! They talk about Kanye like they're bosom buddies with this nigga. Talking about "I be in Hawaii"—man, shut the fuck up, why you got to tell everybody everything? Then people like Wale get mad that 'Ye ain't give him no beats—'Ye ain't give you no beats because we ain't fucking with your raps. It's not a conspiracy theory. We don't fuck with you musically, so we're not going to provide music for you. The shit is a service, it's a quality of a certain standard. Niggas are just so thirsty it's ridiculous. I've been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an asshole. These people don't know my fucking life—now I'm going to give them something to talk about.

Complex: Is that the album's tone? Is it just about you going in?

Kid Cudi: It's explicit, but smart explicit. I'm not holding back. I have no regard for what people consider right or wrong. Some things I follow—like the law, from here on out. But other than that, I'm doing whatever the fuck I want to do. I'm not holding back. That's why I've been so excited about this move to L.A., because I just want to keep growing creatively, all over, as a human being.

Complex: And part of that is anti-metaphor.

Kid Cudi: I want my shit to be like you're reading a novel, not a Dr. Seuss book. I felt like the last album was too short. This one is a little bit longer, it's 18 tracks and counting. It's just ten times better on all levels. The story's deeper, darker, with no holding back. It's beautiful, man. It's an emotional album.

Complex: How do you feel about the "emo" label?

Kid Cudi: DMX is emo and he's one of the realest niggas in the game. Emotion is what hip-hop thrives on. Don't you want your music to have emotion in it? People like to always throw some negative cloud over it. Doesn't even make sense. Jeezy is emo. When that nigga be rapping, you feel it. You know that nigga's talking some real shit.

Complex: Do you think it keeps your songs from going as mainstream as they could?

Kid Cudi: People are quick to judge my singles one by one, and when the album drop, those be the assholes that are like, "Oh shit, I totally underestimated Cudi, this shit is crazy." I told you, dumbass: You can't look at snippets from an Oliver Stone film and be able to critique it.

Complex: Is that in general or talking about a song like "REVOFEV"? People heard "REVOFEV" and said, "This won't work on the charts."

Kid Cudi: When people heard "REVOFEV," it's like, "C'mon, that's not a rap song." I don't give a fuck. I don't make jams for the charts. My whole point is to make the music indescribable. I like baffling motherfuckers.

Complex: Speaking of which: Another song, "Wylin' 'Cause I'm Young," has crazy drug references.

Kid Cudi: Kids respect an honest motherfucker. I fuck up so I can show you about what not to do. I told you do blow? No, Cud did that, so hopefully you won't have to go through that. [Laughs.]

Complex: How heavy did the drug use get?

Kid Cudi: I started doing cocaine to get through interviews, 'cause people wanted to know a lot about my personal life and I wasn't prepared for a 60 Minutes interview every time. Doing bumps I was able to get through the day, but then I would smoke weed to calm me down—it was the only way I could get through the day without people noticing I was doing it.

Complex: Did you ever feel like you had a problem?

Kid Cudi: I never thought it was a problem, but I was definitely high-fiving death a couple of times. It took a lot for me to talk about shit like this on the album. I don't feel like I need to explain myself to anyone besides the fans. My fans don't believe shit until they hear me say it. And those are true Kid Cudi fans. I want them to know the story.

Complex: With all that's happened, do you feel like the full story still isn't known?

Kid Cudi: All they know about me is hitting somebody or being a maniac and being arrested. I never knew the media would be so interested in my personal life.

Complex: A lot of people jumped on you for hitting that fan, too.

Kid Cudi: Even Perez Hilton said some shit about me. He might be a good person and have a good heart, but he does a lot of fuckhead shit. Who are you to talk about people? That's not cool. That's why the world is so fucked up, because of hate. And he's gay? I just don't get that. The gay people I know are about peace and love and coming together. That shit doesn't register with me. He's a chump and a coward, and it's fucked up because I met dude so many times and he had nothing but love to show me. Then when that shit happened with Lady Gaga kicking me off her tour, he had to run his mouth and judge me on that shit.

Complex: Was that tough for you?

Kid Cudi: It was. I apologized to that young man I hit—we hung out, he's the coolest kid in the world. But she's going to kick me off the tour because she didn't want that negative type of energy at her shows? Word? I never did nothing to that girl. Every time I saw her I gave her mad respect, showed her mad love. It didn't matter, I still got paid. She spent all her money on her shows, so I probably made more off her tour than she did. That's the "ha ha ha, isn't it ironic?" moment.

Complex: That's a lot to go through.

Kid Cudi: There's another thing people don't know. I have a daughter, born March 26th of this year. Her name is Vada, and she's fucking awesome. That was eating me up, and it was stressing me out that nobody knew about her. I was trying to escape from that, too. Just trying to figure it out and make everyone happy, it's a lot for somebody my age to handle. I was manning up and dealing with it in what I thought was the right way, but it was the wrong way. I want to be around for her. I can honestly say she was the wake-up call. The reality that it's bigger than just you now—you have a responsibility and there's no more time for mistakes. It's time to stop fucking around.

Complex: That's intense.

Kid Cudi: I was scared as fuck. I need to be a dad now, and I'm not with the girl—how does that work? Because having money isn't it. I just wanted to be a great dad, and I didn't think I was capable. Then I thought: When she gets here it's either nut up or shut up. She's my best friend and she doesn't even know it. That's why I always told myself I'm going to make these songs for my kids, so they can follow along and know my story, if something was ever to happen to me. No matter what motherfuckers are saying or haters are putting in their ear. She can put on my records and be like, "Fuck all that other shit, my dad was like this." But I might make sure she doesn't listen to this album until she's 40. [Laughs.] I'm excited about watching her grow, I'm excited to be a papa.

Complex: Was getting locked up after the criminal mischief arrest another wake-up call?

Kid Cudi: The "new me" happened when I was walking out of court that day. It was really just like, "Man, you got it fucking going on, and you were about to piss it all away for some bullshit." Everywhere I go, people be looking at me like I'm some type of fucking crackhead now. Nobody wants to have their fucking name attached to a maniac, to a fuck-up, so everyone distances themselves. There are only a few motherfuckers that called and checked in on me. I can count them on my hand.

Complex: Who was there for you?

Kid Cudi: Besides the fam, and Yeezy and Don C, there's one artist in this game who has always had my back and had nothing but love to show, and that's Lupe Fiasco. Every time I see that man, it's nothing but love—I saw him a little after it, and he was like "I'm worried about you, man, just checking in." He's somebody who I know really genuinely gives a fuck. Noreaga also checked in.

Complex: So is that it for cocaine?

Kid Cudi: Yup. No more blow. People do drugs to camouflage emotions and run away from their problems. Now I'm going to deal with certain things as they come, prioritize shit—man up, so to speak. Just for the record, it bugged me out that people said it was liquid cocaine. No, I'm just fucking rich, and my blow comes in a jar. There was no liquid in it—that shit makes no sense.

Complex: Going back to the album, when did you decide to switch it from a collabo album back to being dark?

Kid Cudi: When I started making records like "Erase Me." I wanted this album to be fun, but the dark shit was my life at that time. I was fighting not to write that shit. It got frustrating writing a collab album—I just lost interest, and it became more of a task, rather than something I wanted to do. That's not how it's supposed to feel. The day it becomes work, you need to retire.

Complex: Is "Erase Me" a major departure from what you normally do?

Kid Cudi: "Erase Me" was fun as fuck to make, but it's just different. It was me fucking around, just to show people I can do whatever. That's my main goal now, just to show people no matter what I do, I'm going to make shit that's in good taste. Might not be your cup of tea, but it's going to be authentic, it's not going to be forced.

Complex: How do you feel about people saying it's radio-manufactured?

Kid Cudi: When I made it, I was like, "This beat sounds fresh as hell, I want to do some rock shit"—and I did it. I came up with that shit in 30 minutes. I was feeling it, and then I was like, "This shit ain't Cudder, it's just me fucking around, let me stop bullshitting."

Complex: It was a creative look for you and Kanye, though.

Kid Cudi: Can I be honest with you? I don't think anybody is fucking with what we—me and Kanye—got. Creatively, there's nobody. You can argue all day about who has the best album, there's never going to be an answer. There are other artists who are hot for God knows what reason. But as far as creativity, pound for pound, track for track, video for video, hands down, there's nobody fucking with me and 'Ye.

Complex: "Mr. Rager" is a song people will gravitate to, and it clearly means a lot to you. What's the full meaning?

Kid Cudi: This song is about someone who is fed up with reality, who looks for thrills and excitement by any means. It's just kind of how I was feeling at that point. I was just so angry. Doing coke revived me, and knowing I was so close to death every time intrigued me. I liked the thought of it.

Complex: Death is a recurring theme for you.

Kid Cudi: Yeah, but I'm at a different point in my life, and I don't even like talking about that. I've been thinking positive and keeping my mind out of the clouds. You can't take things so seriously, but I gambled for a long time. Shit was intense, it was a journey.

Complex: At the Converse show in July where you acknowledged using cocaine, you said you're going to be around until you're "old as fuck," and also said, "I'm sorry if I let you down, I love you." Did you feel like you let your fans down?

Kid Cudi: Every time I snap. I'm sitting there making songs like "Heart of a Lion" and talking about getting through anything, and rising up, and I'm up here snapping and letting people break my shell. I have to practice what I preach. I get strength, and the kids use it.

Complex: After all the shit you've been through, do you feel strong?

Kid Cudi: I'm maturing. A boy crumbles from stress, a man can take some punches. And I've been getting sucker-punched for a long time. Life's been beating the shit out of me, mentally and physically. But life is one big fucking joke, so I'm laughing inside.
Mariah Carey is already revealing that she's coming out with another holiday album and has come out with it's album artwork! This will be her first holiday-themed album in almost 15 years! I'm honestly excited to hear it because I lovedddddddddddd her last old holiday album. It's played in my house every single holiday. I know Mariah doesn't have the same voice like she used to so I'm curious to see what this will sound like. Her album is due in stores November 2. Here's the official press lease below:

As autumn leaves begin to fall, interna tional superstar Mariah Carey puts the finishing touches on MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU, her second career album of holiday tunes, arriving November 2nd on the Island Def Jam Music Group. Highlighting the long-awaited new album is a brand new recording of Mariah’s all-time standard, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

In addition to traditional yuletide fare – “The First Noel,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” “O Come All Ye Faithful” and more – MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU also contains four original songs composed by Mariah, including the new single, “Oh Santa,” and many more surprises for the fans. Producers on the new album include American Idol’s Randy Jackson, multi-platinum hit-making producer Jermaine Dupri, James Poyser (acclaimed producer for Aretha Franklin, The Roots, Lauryn Hill and more), and five-time Oscar nominee and Grammy/Tony/Emmy award winning composer Marc Shaiman.

MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU is Mariah Carey’s 13th studio album, and follows up her worldwide multi-million-selling Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel (released September 2009), her multi-platinum E=MC? (2008), and worldwide 10 million selling The Emancipation Of Mimi (2005). The Emancipation Of Mimi generated three Grammy Awards (including Best Contemp orary R&B Album), two #1 singles, and countless more honors during its 18-month chart stay. Soundscan’s biggest-selling album of 2005, Mimi featured “We Belong Together” (Grammy winner for Best Female R&B Vocal and Best R&B Song) and “Don’t Forget About Us,” Mariah’s 16th and 17th #1 career singles respectively. They tied one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard Hot 100 history, Elvis Presley’s 17 #1’s.

Three years later, Mariah surpassed Elvis when “Touch My Body" (from E=MC?) became her 18th #1 Hot 100 hit. “Touch My Body” spent two weeks at the top, Mariah’s 78th and 79th cumulative career weeks at #1, which tied Elvis’ long-standing all-time high of 79 weeks at #1, as calculated by Billboard. Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist in the 50 years of the Hot 100 (which began in 1958) with the potential to surpass the Beatles’ all-time high of 20 #1 hits. The success of E=MC? brought total sales of Mariah’s albums, singles and videos to more than 200 million worldwide, distancing her even further from the pack as the top-selling female recording artist in history.
They really are BFFs lol. Rihanna threw singer Katy Perry a huge bachelorette party this past weekend. They first hit up The Hard Rock Hotel Beach Club in Las Vegas on Saturday where Katy was given a cake of a man's torso along with his lower half ;). Then they headed to the MGM Grand Hotel/Casino where Rihanna gave Katy a Cirque du Soleil show. After the show, they went backstage to meet all the cast of the show before heading off to club Sapphire to end their night. Looks like Rihanna knows how to throw a pretty good bachelorette party without strippers!

Jaws dropped when Lady Gaga took the stage at the 2010 Video Music Awards last night wearing meat from head to toe. And, surprise — her VMA meat dress was made with REAL MEAT! Franc Fernandez, the Los Angeles-based designer/artist behind the dress, confirmed that it was real meat when we caught up with him this morning. But now that we know it’s REAL, we’re left with so many more burning questions for Franc Fernandez! Did it smell? Was it bloody? Was it heavy? Was Lady Gaga comfortable? So, we chatted with designer Franc Fernandez tonight to find out all the juicy details. Find out everything you ever wanted to know about Lady Gaga’s meat dress below!
What was your inspiration?
Franc Fernandez: “I was contacted by her stylist, Nicola Formichetti, and they had already shot the picture with Terry Richardson in the meat bikini for Vogue Hommes Japan. They told me that they wanted to make a main dress [out of meat], so I did it.”
What kind of meat was it?
“I don’t know what it’s called in English, but in Argentina, it’s called matambre. I went to my butcher to get it, in Los Angeles in the valley. He’s the butcher that my family goes to. I’m trying to get him a signed picture of it.”
How many pounds of meat did you buy?
“I bought a lot of meat because I wanted extra. I would say more than 50 pounds of meat. Is that a lot?”
How heavy was it?
“It was fairly heavy. She said it was the most comfortable dress of the night, though. I’m guessing it weighed around forty pounds. It’s built on a corset, so the weight is distributed on her chest, so it’s not like it’s hanging off her neck.”
Was it comfortable?
“She said so.”
Were there leftovers?
“Not very much, no.”
Did it leave a blood trail?
“No, not at all. It’s actually very clean meat, very sturdy and strong and doesn’t run at all. It’s the meat you use to make a roast, where you roll it in a tortilla and put it in the oven. Hence, the shoes — that’s why they were wrapped in butcher twine.”
Did it smell?
“Gaga said it smelled good. It had a sweet smell. It hadn’t been sitting out for more than five hours. And it’s not a heavy gross meat.”
Did you have to keep it refrigerated?
“While it was being made it was refrigerated, [worked on] and then refrigerated. It took a span of two days on and off. Maybe three with sourcing and getting materials and everything.”
Will this dress “go bad”?
“Well, yes. And it’s a dress that will dry out. The meat dries out, rather than rotting. It becomes jerky. But, it shouldn’t be worn again.”
To Everyone Who Continuously Reads My Blog,

I KNOW I've been on somewhat of a small hiatus. I think I maybe blogged twice since the end of August or something but never put it on Facebook that I had those new posts. Anyway, I've been super busy which is why I really haven't had the time to sit and just blog and blog and blog.

This year, I'm taking a full 18 credits and seem to always have some type of work to do. It took me the first week of school to even really get the hang of it all. Never have I ever had this much work to do -_______- I'm THE most unorganized person in the world and it really took me up until NOW to get myself together haha. I've stopped putting things off until the last minute. I always think I have more time than I really have which is why I haven't really had time to sit and blog (but of course, somehow I've had time for Facebook at night lol).

Anyway, I think I'm back and in action haha. My hiatus is over. I won't be blogging a lot every single day but I definitely won't be blogging as little as every 2 weeks. I'll have a steady amount of posts going :)

Oh, and MY BIRTHDAY IS SUNDAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY & THE FESTIVITIES START TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!! I'm excited to go in for this whole weekend. It's much needed and well deserved.

Tomorrow I'm going puppy searching and am tooooooo excited because I can't wait to get a puppy and dress it up in frilly sparkly pink things and spoil it like it's my own child :) Updates on that will be coming soon!

As far as makeup goes, I've gotten hitups via Facebook messages about doing people's makeup. I WILL BE DOING MAKEUP STARTING NEXT WEEK. I know I'm starting kind of late but better sort of late than never right? If you need your makeup done, let me know through here, via Facebook, bbm, or however you feel you want to contact me :)
People ask me where I got this neutral look from and I got it from the Urban Decay 'NAKED' Palette (which I've totally been neglecting up until recently). I used 'half baked' all over the lid and 'hustle' in the crease I believe. For those who ask what foundation I use: the foundation I use is from Makeup Forever HD Foundation. It's my absolute favorite favorite favorite on this planet, so go get it if you're looking for a new foundation :)

Ok, that's about all I have to say for a semi-quick update!

Yours truly,
This boyyyyy killeddddddddddddddddd it. If Nicki saw this, I think she'd have to take pointers
from him lmao. WOW WOW WOW WOWWWWW. Leave it to a dude to killlll what Nicki
is doing lol. Watch & be AMAZED.
Am I the only one who isn't even feelin' this photoshoot? I can't be the only one.

I've been following this story for a little while now because it would always pop up when I'm checking my email. After much controversy and investigation, player Reggie Bush is the first man in the Heisman's 75 year history to return the hard earned trophy. There has been many rumors that the Heisman committee was eventually going to strip him of his trophy some time in the near future. All of this started when NCAA officials determined that Reggie and his family accepted "improper benefits" from the University of South Carolina's athletic program while he was still in school which would make him ineligible for the trophy. I suppose this is the best thing that Reggie could have done. Instead of having it officially taken away from him, it's better to just voluntarily hand it back to end the speculations, rumors, and drama surrounding it all. Here's an official statement that Reggie issued regarding his decision:

“One of the greatest honors of my life was winning the Heisman Trophy in 2005. For me, it was a dream come true. But I know that the Heisman is not mine alone. Far from it. I know that my victory was made possible by the discipline and hard work of my teammates, the steady guidance of my coaches, the inspiration of the fans, and the unconditional love of my family and friends. And I know that any young man fortunate enough to win the Heisman enters into a family of sorts. Each individual carries the legacy of the award and each one is entrusted with its good name.

It is for these reasons that I have made the difficult decision to forfeit my title as Heisman winner of 2005. The persistent media speculation regarding allegations dating back to my years at USC has been both painful and distracting. In no way should the storm around these allegations reflect in any way on the dignity of this award, nor on any other institutions or individuals. Nor should it distract from outstanding performances and hard-earned achievements either in the past, present or future.

For the rest of my days, I will continue to strive to demonstrate through my actions and words that I was deserving of the confidence placed in me by the Heisman Trophy Trust. I would like to begin in this effort by turning a negative situation into a positive one by working with the Trustees to establish an educational program which will assist student-athletes and their families avoid some of the mistakes that I made. I am determined to view this event as an opportunity to help others and to advance the values and mission of the Heisman Trophy Trust.

I will forever appreciate the honor bestowed upon me as a winner of the Heisman. While this decision is heart-breaking, I find solace in knowing that the award was made possible by the support and love of so many. Those are gifts that can never be taken away.”
You were just gettin' it when you could get it huh?

The gorgeous Megan Fox is covering the October issue of Elle Magazine! In her interview and spread with Elle, Megan opens up about marriage and what she feels people think about the fact that she is married. For the full interview, wait for this issue to hit the stands!

On being married: "When I talk about my husband [Brian Austin Green], I feel as if people roll their eyes. It’s like when you’re 16 and order a martini, and the waiter says, ‘Do you think I’m stupid?’ They can’t grasp that I’m old enough to be married."

Urban Decay just came out with a new palette called The Black Palette and I'm completely lovingggggggg the colors. The palette features 6 eyeshadow colors, a travel sized 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner pencil in Zero, along with a mini Eden Primer Potion. The cost is $36 which isn't horrible. Whenever I get home up to Commons Way Mall, I'll definitely be picking up this bad boyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Lately everyone's doing something drastic to their hair. Lloyd recently cut off his long gorgeous hair and Amerie went completely platinum blonde. How do we feel about this?
I loveeee this cover art. I loveeeeeee her red long hair. I loveeeeeeeeeeeee the new sound she's going for. This song is supposed to be off her new album "Loud!". I'm interested to hear more of what's on the album after hearing this song. If you haven't heard it, listen below!
Gaga poses with raw meat for Japan's new September 2010 issue of Vogue. Of course PETA wasn't happy at all. Here's what the President of the organization had to say about Gaga's bold move for the cover:

Lady Gaga’s job is to do outlandish things, and this certainly qualifies as outlandish because meat is something you want to avoid putting on or in your body, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk says. “No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal. Meat represents bloody violence and suffering, so if that’s the look they were going for, they achieved it.
I was honestly shocked when I heard the rumors that Will & Jada Smith's little girl Willow got signed to Jay-Z's label. Then I heard her song 'Flip My Hair' and definitely could see why. I really do like her song lol. She actually has talent (who would've known!). Jay-Z sat down with Ryan Seacrest and confirmed the rumors saying: 

I heard the record first before I knew that it was recorded by a nine year old and I was like man that record’s a smash. I believe in superstars. I believe on big records on superstars and I think she has both.

We at Roc Nation are excited to work with Willow. She has an energy and enthusiasm about her music that is truly infectious. It’s rare to find an artist with such innate talent and creativity at such a young age. Willow is about to embark on an incredible journey and we look forward to joining her as she grows in all aspects of her career.

Listen to her song below!
I always thought Rihanna had a nice body but I didn't realize how bomb her stomach is! I don't know why I didn't take her as a person to really really workout but it looks like it did it's job! Rihanna went to Hawaii this past monday and enjoyed the beach and sun with her other girlfriends. How cuteee! Oh, and those new tattoos (the gun and the half sleeve) ARE NOT real. They're for an upcoming movie she's working on.

Every girl honestly should own a pair of simple, yet sexy nude pumps. Steve Madden's Caryssa Pump in Blush does the trick. I think it was in Menlo Mall that I tried this shoe on and completely DIED inside. This shoe was pureeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee sex on my feet. They're a nice 5 inches and are honestly perfect in every way. This shoe came in patent leather as well as in a suede-like material. Patent leather is honestly the way to go. If you saw the other Steve Madden shoes I bought (the all glitter one), that's the shoe that I walked out the store with instead of with BOTH that shoe and this nude shoe because although 8.5 fit in the nude pump, it was a little tight and they didn't have the next size up :( So I'm currently about to order these bad boys online from Bloomies :) The price is only $89.95 which really isn't TOO too bad haha. Anyway, I honestly really recommend that everyone get this shoe. We all need a little nude in our lives ;) Click here to order!
Pardon me with this late post, but how on point is Rihanna's wax figure? It looks AMAZING. Even the hair color of her bangs looks exactly like how it was when she had her hair colored blonde. The only thing that I don't think is too too accurate is her boob size lmao. Those babies on the wax figure look so much bigger than what Rihanna is really working with. Agree?

Also, can we just feign over Rihanna's new long hair red look? I didn't know if I liked the big red bang before but I definitely like the head full of red. That's saying something especially since I don't think red looks good on everyone. Only a handful can pull it off and she's one of them.
AND this fool JUST got out of prison. SMH.

This past Wednesday (Sept 1), rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny got pulled over and arrested after police smelled Marijuana and also found Ecstasy and Meth in their Maybach. They were arrested on the grounds of "possession of a controlled substance". T.I.'s probation officer has been on the move to find out what exactly happened and where the drugs came from. T.I. was ordered by his probation officer to come back down to Atlanta immediately.

This is so sad ... and almost irritating. This man is fresh out of jail and now he wants to have drugs in his car? I think it'll be a hard thing trying to get his probation officer to let this one go unless he has one hell of an excuse as to why he had meth and ecstasy in his car.
