What's Going On...Sept 10...VMA Style

The 2007 MTV Video Music Awards had no host for the first time ever and last night some of the most entertaining things took place. Were you at home watching?

The VMAs aired last night on MTV in Las Vegas at 6 p.m. (Pacific Time). There were several celebrities present including Diddy, Alicia Keys, T.I., Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Jay-Z, super-producer Timberland, and Britney Spears. The list goes on.

The talk of the night and forever more will be Britney Spears' opening performance for her new single "Gimme More," featuring a sample from T.I.'s song, "Bring 'Em Out." Spears appeared to be unsure of herself, tired, and relaxed as if she was not making a come back to the pop scene. She lip-synced the entire song and did mediocre dance routines that made you wonder if she was the same Britney who danced her heart out on the VMA stage once before with a python around her neck. The crowd watched anxiously waiting for more, but Britney gave them less than what they were used to. Just watch the audience's reaction, especially 50 Cent's who seemed to look confused. Diddy did not look pleased at all in the audience.

Even though most would expect a thriller of a performance, from Spears, at least Chris Brown did an excellent job with his performance of his hit "Wall to Wall," including snippets of his new single with T-Pain and a Micheal Jackson themed breakdown dance. Brown danced and sang the entire time. When he was finished, he received handshakes from Nelly and those sitting at Nelly's table that Brown finished his routine on.

The entire night was filled with hotel parties in Palms Casino Resort. Kanye West performed most of the night with a crowded room dancing to his music. One of the highlights of the evening was when MTV showed West and T-Pain performing his new single titled "Good Life." People were outside dancing on the see through balcony with West and T-Pain.

Did anyone notice that while Beyonce received an award for her and Shakira's single "Beautiful Liar," she kissed West and not 50 Cent, who came on the stage together? 50 looked at the camera and raised an eyebrow and Beyonce walked by to receive her award.

Word of Kid Rock and Tommy Lee, Pam Anderson's former husband, fist fighting backstage hit the stage once Jamie Foxx announced it as he was presenting an award with Jennifer Garner. No word on any injuries yet or who won.

To see clips of what happen between the two rockers visit:

Producer Timberland did a great job of MCing and DJing on his beat maker as he brought out Nelly Fertado, Justin Timberlake, and Keri Hilson.

Missed everything? Don't worry MTV said they will air it again, but it will be different because it will not be exactly the same they say. It will be remixed. Stay tuned.

What's Going On...Sept.10-Sept.16

This just in...Breaking Entertainment News! New Blog for September 10, 2007!

Sorry about no news on Monday, but it was Labor Day and I had to eat two hamburgers and some Lays chips!

Foxy Brown (nee Inga Marchand) has been sentenced to prison in New York to serve a term of one year for violating her probation. She was on probation for assault charges. It has not been determined where Brown will serve her time in jail.Brown is three months pregnant.

The rapper has yet to release the fan anticipated album Black Roses. No word yet whether or not the project is still going forward, since she has been given jail time.

Attention all 50 Cent and Kanye West fans! The beef may be a gimmick! Think about it. Kanye West has always been arrogant, so is it really like him to turn down a challenge to sell the most records during the first week of his albums release. He feels as though everything he says is relevant and believes 50 raps about things that are not conscious. There's advertising on BET for both of their release dates, magazines, radio shows, everybody is promoting this event? Now if Kanye was really beefing with 50...would this be so heavily publicized? Not unless it got out of control like Jay-Z and Nas or Biggie and Tupac! In West's new song, featuring T-Pain titled "Good Life," West says, "50 told me go 'head and switch the style up, And if they hate then let 'em hate, And watch the money pile up, the good life." Hmmm....

First comes love, then comes marriage, next comes the girl with the baby carriage...Well, actually first comes love, then comes baby, marriage is somewhere up in the air for Halle Berry! Halle Berry, 41, is pregnant by Gabriel Aubry, 31-year-old model, and her boyfriend of two years!

"Yes I am three months pregnant," Berry told Access Hollywood. "Gabriel and I are beyond excited and I've waited a long time for this moment in my life. Now the next seven months will be the longest of my life!"

Berry has made it public that she has always wanted to start a family. In April, she told Access Hollywood that she had reached a point where she was "really, really, ready to procreate."

Berry has been married and divorced twice. Her marriage to baseball player David Justice ended in 1996. Her divorce to R&B singer Eric Benet was finalized in January 2005.

50 Cent has some explaining to do...A woman with her butt cheeks out and her body aruond 50 looks all too much like R&B sensation Ciara! There are more close up pictures of the woman touching 50 and she seems to really like him whoever she is. I will post the pictures, so that you can see for yourself! Ciara's camp claims that this is a model who looks like Ciara and that Ciara did take some pictures with 50, and that she is outraged that he would put them inside of his album cover to resemble her. Hmmm...

On another note, has anyone seen the new Jennifer Lopez video? It's terrible! Watch it here! The concept is that J.Lo is supposed to be some bad-ass well-dressed investigator who comes up in the club busting people in the head, neck, kicking them...etc. She comes in the club to rescue a little boy who is alone in the club. This isn't just any club! It has a sex slave theme! J.Lo to the rescue!
