*UPDATE* The 'KING'-UNCAGED-- Well.. Almost... T.I. "in transit" to Atlanta to serve out the rest of his sentence!

We reported earlier that rapper T.I. was NOT going to be released from incarceration today, but it appears that he is indeed ALMOST HOME.  Apparently the rapper was released BUT is on his way back to Atlanta to serve out 30 days in a halfway house or home confinement.  So 'The King' is UNCAGED, ALMOST but not quite.

Chris Burke, spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, says, T.I. was released at 7:29 AM local time ... and is "in transit" to begin the next leg of his sentence.

T.I. is already back on everybody'd FAVE sounding board, Twitter:
6:50 AM: T.I. is already back on Twitter -- and just fired off a message saying, "The storm is over & da sun back out. IT'S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!"

He also wrote, "Feels great to be back where I belong...Back in the arms of those who need me the most."

9:09 AM: T.I.”s attorney, Jonathan Leonard, tells TMZ ... the rapper will serve the remainder of his sentence in a halfway house in Atlanta.

'KING: STILL CAGED'- T.I. NOT to be released from PRISON TODAY!

Rumors have been swirling around since Tuesday that rapper/actor T.I. was set to be released from FEDERAL PRISON today.  Well according to the rapper's lawyer, those rumors are FALSE.  The 'King' is still CAGED at least until late September. 

According to T.I.'s lawyer, Jonathan Leonard, who has represented the artist since 2002, T.I.'s Sept. 29 release date has not changed.

"The Bureau of Prisons they won't give you the information [of his release] until the very last minute," Leonard told XXL.

"The Bureau of Prisons makes all the decisions once [someone goes] into the federal system then the federal prisons is the governing body as to when he's released, the judge has no control over it," he continued. "And you don't have any real contact with them, they don't communicate with you and they don't tell you when exactly he's gonna be released ... They don't even cooperate with me and tell me much of anything."

T.I. is currently housed in Forrest City Federal Prison in Arkansas, serving out an 11-month sentence for violating his parole back in September 2010, when he tested positive for ecstasy.

"He's doing great," Leonard said of his client, whom he claims to have spoken with on Leonard spoke with on Monday (August 29). "He's certainly looking forward to getting this behind him."

Hopefully the rapper has learned his lesson THIS TIME and indeed will stay focused and out of prison.  We hope to see the rapper return to form and regain his 'King of the South' title he so boldly tauts.  Family, music and his fans should be his main focus and of course, keeping his 'nose clean'.  No pun intended.

Dancing with The Stars NEW CAST REVEALED!!! #DWSTCast

It's about that time again!  ABC's hit show 'Dancing with the Stars' roars back September 19th and take a look at this seasons competitors!!!!

Part 2


Hmmm, there maybe a SLIGHT ratings drop from last season.... JUST SAYING.....

#SteveStoute says:"No one is on his level..." [Jay-Z] in reference to #LilWayne- #JayZ Beef!


Tongues have been wagging ever since Lil' Wayne issued a few choice words possibly aimed at Jay-Z in his song, 'It's Good' from "Tha Carter IV".  We've all heard the track and know just what I am talking about.  But, here is the rub.  Record executive, rap connoisseur and author Steve Stoute had this to say about the proposed 'beef' between the two hip-hop heavy-weights.  In a recent interview with Jas of JASFLY, Stoute weighed in on the situation:

@KellyRowland reacts to #Beyonce baby news!

Kelly Rowland and former bandmate to Beyonce chimes in on Bey's pregnancy and how hard it was for her to keep the news under wraps! caught up with the diva who is a huge star in her own light, and they asked her thoughts on the unexpected pregnancy announcement:

“I have known for quite a while, and she’s happy, and Jay is happy, and that’s all that counts. She’s always been so motherly,” Kelly said during the House of Hype VMA afterparty. “I think that she takes after so many traits from her mother. And I just think it’s going to be so natural for her. It’s natural for her now!”

Kelly Rowland's new disc 'Here I Am' is in stores now and doing quite well I might add.  It's good to see that Kelly and Beyonce are still quite close and support each other.  The media often tend to allude to trouble between the friends, but in the past few months they have shown that they are indeed as close as they have always been.

Hollywood Scoop caught up with Rowland and this is what she had to say:

Michael Vick back on top! Nabs $100 Mil contract extension!

It seems that Michael Vick is indeed back on top! Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles agreed on a six-year contract on Monday that again makes the Pro Bowl quarterback one of the highest-paid players in the NFL.

A source familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press the deal is worth $100 million, including about $40 million guaranteed.
Michael Vick has had a long and arduous journey back into good graces since spending 18 months in federal prison on dogfighting charges. He led the Eagles to the NFC East title last year, was the starting quarterback in the Pro Bowl and was the AP Comeback Player of the Year.

Vick was due to earn slightly more than $16 million this season after the Eagles designated him the franchise player in February. He'll make a little less, possibly giving the Eagles salary cap flexibility to give Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson an extension.

The 31-year-old Vick joined the Eagles in 2009, and played sparingly as the third-string QB behind Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb.

He started last year as the backup, but forced his way into the starting role with his exceptional performances after Kolb got hurt in the season opener.

Vick guided the Eagles to an 8-3 record in 11 games as a starter in his first season playing full-time since 2006.

Jay Glazer speaks on Vick's contract extension:

Congrats are definitely in order for the star quarterback. 

#Beyonce's baby bump breaks records and boosts sales! Say it 5 x fast!

Beyonce's 'Baby bump' naturally stole the show at Sunday's VMA's.  But what could fastly become the most famous unborn baby in quite some time also had some other effects aas well.  According to   after her crowd-rousing performance of 'Love on Top' this past Sunday at the VMA's, Beyonce's '4' LP has found its way back into the top 10 on the iTunes chart!  Also the single, 'Love on Top' has out-paced her current single 'Best Thing I Never Had', as well as the girl power-amped 1st official single 'Run the World (Girls).  And to think, 'Love on Top' isn't an officially released single from the album.. Well the people have spoke and I am sure TEAMBEYONCE will be sure to listen.  Expect to see this song get some major radio airplay in the very near future.  And also Beyonce's uber famous baby has also set another record as well.

Chris Brown the Acrobat! #MTV #VMA 2011

A Lot of talk has gone around about Chris Brown's performance at Sunday's MTV VMA's!  I will give it to them, the production and the infusion of Wu-Tang and Nirvana was genius.  MTV is above the curve on the production side of things.  The presentation was impeccable.  However, I just wished Chris would have sang SOMETHING.  At least a few ad-libs, but there were no original vocals in the entire dance sequence.  And the  acrobatics was a nice touch, but at one point he was just flipping around in the air just because.  I guess MTV wanted to get their money's worth for the harness and safety crew on board for this performance.  LOL.  But really, Brown has the dancing thing on lock.  But with artists like Janet, Michael and Beyonce doing intricate choreography while still singing, i just expected Brown to attempt to do the same. Nonetheless is was still a good performance.

So what did you think of Chris Brown's performance Jay???

"Chris Who?"

LOL.... But really though...

I think Jay-Z is just TOO COOL TO CARE.  There has been talk about him purposely not applauding for Brown, but no one can get into this guys head to see why he does what he does.  I am sure there was no ill-will meant towards the young pop star.  D'ost protest too much....

'Living LARGE': TLC premieres 'Big Sexy' Reality show TONIGHT!

"Not Every Fat girl wants to be SKINNY!"  Well at least that is what one of the cast members from TLC's new reality series 'Big Sexy' had to say.

TLC is poised to break the mold when it comes to the general population's perception about plus-sized ladies and their place in the fashion industry, with the premiere of a larger than life new reality series 'Big Sexy'.

The show will follow five New York women—Leslie, Tiffany, Audrey, Nikki, and Heather—who are on a mission to mainstream plus-size fashion modeling.  Move over Tyra, there are something new coming to the catwalks!  The release says:

From designing clothing to booking modeling gigs, BIG SEXY will follow the ladies as they take over Manhattan to make plus-size sexiness more mainstream. Weight bias is notoriously rampant in their chosen industries, and it is their mission to prove that a bigger girl—the girl that most Americans can relate to—can break the mold and change the fashion and cultural norms that have restricted and rejected them for so long.

Throughout the series, the women will attend fashion industry events and the viewer will get a behind-the-scenes peek at each of the women's personal lives—including dating and family life.

The show debuts TONIGHT @ 10pm on TLC.

Janet SNUBS Michael Jackson's Tribute Concert!?!?!

Not all of the Jacksons will be at the Tribute concert on Oct 8th in Wales!  Janet SNUBS the tribute!?  But it is not for the reason you may think.

 On what would have been Michael Jackson's 53rd birthday, the pop ICON, announced that she WILL NOT be taking part in the tribute to her brother.  Janet states:
“Because of the trial, the timing of this tribute to our brother would be too difficult for me."

Janet who has said in countless interviews that she and Michael shared a most special bond, would be the one Jackson people would expect to take part in the trinute, but because the date of the concert coincides with the trial of a Dr.Conrad Murray; charged in the King of Pop’s death, Janet has opted out of the tribute.

Anyone would imagine that it would be extremely hard for her to take part in a tribute when the man accused of taking her brother's life is to appear in court.  Janet most likely feels that seeking justince is more important at this time.  You can not fault her for that at all.

New Video: Nicki Minaj 'Fly'-featuring Rihanna

The long-awaited visual for Nicki Minaj's 'Fly' has finally seen the light of day.  A sneak peek was unveiled at Sunday's VMA's, now you can see the entire video.  The visual was directed by 'SuperBass' director Sanaa Hamri.  Minaj won 'Best Hip Hop Video' beating out her own mentor on Sunday, so if that is indicative of what Hamri can bring to the table, why not enlist her for another video?  'Fly' was shot earlier this year and is just now seeing the light of day.  The visual was well done, but my concern is that the artists' [RiRi & Nicki's] have clearly changed since the filming of this, so the visual comes off somewhat dated to me.  Also in light of some many tragedies involving fatality of great musicians in plane crashes, ie Buddy Holly, Aaliyah, & Patsy Cline, I would have taken a different approach in the visualization of what appears to be an inspirational song.  The 'doomsday' look of the wreckage of a plane comes off depressing to say the least.  But it does have a happy ending where we see flowers blooming from the wreckage.  Nonetheless, the visual is here for you enjoyment:

'Questionable' #MTV #VMA fashion through the years!!

The VMA's is about music, but also very important is THE LOOK.  On the Red or in this year's case 'Black' Carpet, the stars are often asked, "What are you wearing?"  Sometimes the question should be posed, "What in the HELL are you wearing?"  Let's take a look back at some questionable fashion at MTV's annual fete.

"The dry cleaners was closed."

"I smell like TEEN SPIRIT!"

"Latex means safe sex, right?"

American Idol ain't ready for that 'jelly'!
"Is my slip showing?"

"Fly Away...please!"

Send in the CLOWNS! LOL

If you see this near any MTV stage, swat it with a broom or stick!

You know TINA made this MESS!

"I was tryna look like the MOON MAN."

Whips and chains may excite her too.

"My dress is about to spoil."

One of the most TALKED about outfits...Lil' Kim and the lil kim pastie!
No malfunction here, this was INTENTIONAL!
