#ShermanHemsley STILL NOT BURIED!!!

Actor Sherman Hemsley passed away in his home back in July and over 3 months later, he has YET TO BE BURIED!!

What is the hold up you may ask??

The holdup, according to Reuters, is coming from the beneficiaries of his will, as well as questions about his exact cause of death.

A worker at the Eastside location of the San Jose Funeral Home in El Paso, Texas confirmed to FOX411’s Pop Tarts column that Hemsley was still at the home, and that they were waiting for a court order telling them what to do with his body.

Hopefully the body has been embalmed at least.

It was revealed in August that Hemsley’s body had not been buried amid a legal dispute between his former manager and self-proclaimed business partner and live-in best friend Flora Enchinton – who was named as the sole beneficiary in his will – and a Philadelphia man, Richard Thornton, who claims to be the actor’s brother. Thornton filed a civil lawsuit disputing the validity of the will, signed by Hemsley one month prior to his death.

Hemsley had said in media interviews that he was an only child. His estate is reportedly valued at $50,000.

It is a SHAME that these people are squabbling over a small amount of money and this man has still not been laid to rest!

#NickiMinaj in Nottingham!! [pics]

Nicki Minaj is a veteran when it comes to wardrobe malfunctions.  We all remember her infamous NIP SLIP while performing on GMA a few years ago.  It appears those darn nipples of Nicki's just do not want to behave because they've poked out again--this time while she was performing in England.

The "American Idol" judge was kicking off her Roman Reloaded European Tour in Nottingham, England wearing a black bustier when the darnedest thing happens...her nipples wanted their CLOSE-UP!

Peep the NIP SLIP----


This time NICKI came prepared...WITH TAPE!  SO those pesky Nipples didn't get too much EXPOSURE!  Now that's the consummate professional right there!  Tape those NIPS DOWN!!!


WOW! #TaylorSwift moves a MILLI 'RED' units in a week! #KendrickLamar debuts at #2!

Gammites, do you guys still buy/download Cd's??? Apparently you do!  This weeks numbers shows that there is still POWER in CD buying!

Taylor Swift has done it again!  Swift easily manages to go PLATINUM in a week pushing 1.2 million units of her 'Red' disc!  And you know a great percentage of the dividends from the album go back into her pocket because she WRITES upwards of 90% of her songs!  WOW!

Hip-Hop showed some staying power as well, as West Coast newcomer Kendrick Lamar moved 242k units of  'good kid, m.A.A.d. city', landing him at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and #1 on the Hip-Hop chart!  These are indeed impressive numbers and congratulations to BOTH!!!


Star Tracks:#Beyonce in the studio with #Miguel!

miguel beyonce e1351674520551 Hot Shot: Beyonce Hits Studio With...Miguel

Musically, Beyonce has been rather quiet, but we all know King B is busy in the 'kitchen cooking' up a comeback for 2013.  With the Super Bowl gig locked down, you;d better believe Bey would use that platform to showcase some a new project, right? Of course!  

Word from the curb is that Bey has been spending many nights hauled up in a NYC studio crafting her 5th solo project.  Mrs. Carter was snapped most recently in the lab with trendsetter and break-out new artist Miguel!  Miguel has crafted hits like 'Adorn' and other hits for other artists, so a nice pairing of he and Bey is sure to churn out a smooth jam, right?

 Beyonce is experimenting with many different producers ans sounds for he next outing.

…woah. creating for Virgo’s all weekend

I am eager to see what these two superstars cook up!

#AffionCrockett SPOOFS #2Chainz in 'Enunciation' [video]

All the Gammites and friends to the blog KNOW that I am a HUGE Affion Crockett fan.  This comedian is BRILLIANT!!  FOX, you didn't give his show a FAIR CHANCE!!!! I am sure Affion will be back on TVs really soon.  Crockett is known for his spot on celebrity impersonations, namely, Jay-Z, Lil' Wayne, Drake and even the late great Michael Jackson.  Now it seems Affion has set his sights on another rapper-- 2 Chainz.  2 Chainz is everybody's favorite 'new' rapper on the block and a personal fave of mine as well, but sometimes I am like, 'What is the n*gga saying?  Where'd he come up with that ish!?"  Crockett takes that to the full out extent in this spoof entitled 'Enunciation'.  Check it out:

#Madonna gets BOOED in N.O. for PRAISING #PresidentObama!

Well I guess we know which way Louisiana is voting in this year's election.  Pop ICON, Madonna got the crowd off to a bad start in New Orleans over the weekend.  She drew a round of 'BOOS' when she spoke about the election to her sold-out audience for a tour stop on the 'MDNA Tour'.

"Who's registered to vote," she asked concertgoers, and then followed with, "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama."

After the crowd took issue with her remarks—in the form of boos—the Material Girl went on to say, "Seriously, I don't care who you vote for. Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote."

Well, at least she recovered well from that guffaw.

We know who MADGE is voting for!!!

ROCK the VOTE people!!!

#HurricaneSandy FLOODS NYC! Lower Manhatten BLACK OUT! [pics]

New York City was perfectly positioned to absorb the worst of Hurricane Sandy's storm surge — a record 13 feet.

The effects of the superstorm that flooded parts of the city are lingering into Tuesday and likely will for much longer, with a large swath of the city out of power, subway and vehicle tunnels flooded, and the financial district closed for a second day.

The storm was once Hurricane Sandy but combined with two wintry systems to become a huge hybrid storm whose center smashed ashore late Monday in New Jersey.

"We knew that this was going to be a very dangerous storm, and the storm has met our expectations," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "This is a once-in-a-long-time storm."
Water lapped over the seawall in Battery Park City, flooding rail yards, subway tracks, tunnels and roads. Rescue workers floated bright orange rafts down flooded downtown streets, while police officers rolled slowly down the street with loudspeakers telling people to go home.

Late Monday, an explosion at a substation at 14th Street and FDR Drive contributed to the power outages. No one was injured, and ConEd did not know whether the explosion was caused by flooding or by flying debris.
Earlier in the day, another 1 million customers lost power in New York City, the northern suburbs and coastal Long Island, where floodwaters swamped cars, downed trees and put neighborhoods under water.
Three people in the area were killed by falling trees.
The storm had killed one New York City resident by Monday night, a man who died when a tree fell on his home in Queens. On Long Island, falling trees also killed a 39-year-old man in Lloyd Harbor and an 84-year-old man in Roslyn.
On coastal Long Island, floodwaters swamped cars, downed trees and put neighborhoods under water as beachfronts and fishing villages bore the brunt of the storm. A police car was lost rescuing 14 people from the popular resort Fire Island.


Devastating!  We pray for the city of NY!

NEW YORK, NY –November 8, 2012 – VH1’s beloved, popular franchise VH1 Divas is throwing the hottest dance party of 2012 LIVE on Sunday, December 16 at 9PM/8c with Grammy Award-nominated host Adam Lambert. This year’s show will celebrate the dance-inducing music that is the vibrant soundtrack to every major blowout bash, unforgettable party and night out on the town. VH1 is bringing together Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Jordin Sparks to pay homage to the greatest divas of dance music with performances featuring current and classic dance hits.

“This is going to be one hell of a party! We are extremely thrilled to have the extraordinarily talented Adam Lambert as our 2012 VH1 Divas host,” says Lee Rolontz, EVP, Original Music Production & Development, VH1 and VH1 Classic. “The world has truly been inspired by dance music and what better way for VH1 to pay tribute than by honoring legends Whitney Houston and Donna Summer through song and dance.”

Additional performers and presenters will be announced as the show approaches.

Sources close to production have revealed that they not only have the approval of Houston's family and former record label, Sony, but her musical director Ricky Minor has even signed on as an executive producer!

VH1 President Tom Calderone says:

"We all felt that if any show could pay tribute to Whitney's music, it would be 'Divas.' December felt like enough time where it wouldn't be sad anymore, you'd want to celebrate her music."

#SugarRayLenonard speaks on past SEXUAL ABUSE at Pennsylvania Conference!

Yesterday Sugar Ray Leonard spoke about his personal experiences of abuse at the Child Sexual Abuse Conference in State College, Pa .

The retired boxing champion said he cried for Jerry Sandusky’s accusers after hearing of the former Penn State assistant football coach’s arrest on child sex abuse charges nearly a year ago.
An abuse survivor himself, Leonard said he hopes the accusers can draw from his own story and willingness to speak out about a problem that garnered national attention following the Sandusky scandal.

“What I had heard about Penn State — I cried for those victims,” Leonard told reporters after speaking at Penn State’s inaugural Child Sexual Abuse Conference. “Because I knew what they’d dealt with, what they lived with … It’s such an awful thing that eats away at you, that makes you feel that you’re to blame.”
Leonard said he didn’t plan to reach out to the accusers. But asked what advice he would pass on, Leonard said it would be to “surrender. And surrender means, ‘Yes it did happen,’ but now deal with it. Speak up, speak out.

It'd be interesting to get the full details of Leonard's abuse. I am sure if I dig deep enough I can find out some more info and when I do, I'll bring it to you!

Caption This: VP hopeful #PaulRyan with #StaceyDash!

You can vote for who you like, you can support whatever you wish, but this display just shows how desperate some people are.  Celebs when they feel their 'light' is dimming will go to great lengths to stay relevant.  Case in point--'Clueless' actress Stacey Dash shows her support for the Republican ticket by posing with Paul Ryan!


I am not going to bash Stacey for her choice, but it just SMELLS of attention-seeking.  The sad part of the whole matter is I am QUITE sure Paul Ryan nor Mitt Romney even knew who she was before her publicly supporting the two.  IJS.

More pics of #Zoesaldana as #NinaSimone surface!

Some people are ecstatic that Hollywood is finally doing a moving on the legend, Nina Simone.  However, some critics are appalled at the actress chosen to take on the role.  Some critics have even taken to the Internet to post petitions AGAINST actress Zoe Saldana playing such a legendary figure.  Well, the petitions were to no avail because production has already began on the biopic and we have another pic of Saldana as Nina Simone.  Do you care to see???  Take a look and weigh in on what you think??

This flick has the potential to be a career-defining moment for Zoe--if she can pull it off.  It can also go horribly wrong as well.  Let's cross our fingers that its the 1st option.

Premiere: #Ludacris-'Representin' feat. KellyRowland [video]

The sultry, simmering over visual for Ludacris' 'Representin' is finally here!!  I must say, I was a bit skeptical about the 'Ludaverse' project after the 1st single, 'Jingalin' failed to impress, but Luda came back HARD with this one.  And of course Kelly helps AMP up the 'sexy factor' on this slow burn.  Look closely, the chemistry between the two is uncanny..... But  don't let me talk you to death--see for yourself.

Get That Look: #Beyonce rocks #Obama earrings-demand goes through the ROOF!

You want to get that look and make a statement as you cast your ballot on next Tuesday??  You TOO can look like Beyonce--well at least you can rock the same earrings as her.

Beyonce was seen donning a set of Obama earrings created by designer, Erika Pena.  Since then the demand for the ear gems has gone through the roof.  Initially Pena only made 5 pairs of the handcrafted earpieces.  Since Beyonce rocked the earrings on last week, Pena has sold over 13,000 pairs.

Pena says she received orders almost immediately from all over the world -- England, Switzerland, Chile, and Argentina. She reports that her biggest order came from London.

The earrings currently sell for $32 a pair, but I am sure with the increased demand for them, they are sure to GO UP!
