Jhené Aiko Goes Nude For Peta Anti-Fur Lead
Jhené Aiko bares all as this year’s “Sexiest Vegan,” an honor bestowed on her by PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals). To celebrate this, the “Maniac” songstress posed nude for the organization’s “Drop the Fur” campaign, covering her body in white sheets.

A proud vegan, Jhené says she began the lifestyle after being hospitalized and told that her eating habits had been unhealthy. Now, she feels there are also other reasons to live without consuming animal products.

Drop the fur. @JheneAiko would #RatherGoNaked than wear fur in her new @peta ad! http://peta.vg/jheneaiko

“As human beings, we have the power to speak up for animals,” she explains in an interview with PETA. “They don’t speak our language, so I feel like it’s up to us to help them and give them a voice. Animals have feelings. They have souls. They have emotions. The way they’re killed for fur is very inhumane.”

In an explicit clip that features brutal images of animals being hurt and killed, Aiko explains why she doesn’t wear fur. “They’re electrocuted, beaten, drowned, skinned alive,” she says. “Once you know that, how could you think wearing fur is cool? It’s not.”

In 2014, the L.A. singer also promoted pet adoption in an ad for PETA2.

Last night, Jhené and her TWENTY88 co-star/boyfriend Big Sean attended PETA’s “Naked Ambition” event in Los Angeles, where her ad was unveiled

Plush Vehicles Sprayed With Bullets Outside Rick Ross's Music Studio

It is definitely an unlucky streak for Rick Ross as the rapper has been connected to yet another unfortunate incident(even though he was absent this time)that involved an actual shooting.

A shooting incident reportedly took place outside Ross's studio that resulted in the damage of some luxury cars outside a northwest Atlanta recording studio complex.According to reports,a late-model Corvette, a Mercedes CL63 that retails for over $150,000 and an Infiniti G35 were damaged by the gunfire that took place at 4 am. Ross clearly wasn't involved in the shooting as he was absent at the time it happened.



The 'Deeper than rap' rapper is opening an office in the Twelve Studios complex, which is in an industrial area off Collier Road.According to reports, two women told police they were inside one of the music studios when they "heard (a) loud noise that sounded like fireworks but were actually gunshots."One of the women told police she went to check her car when she saw broken glass on the floor in the studio.Police officers found eight .40-caliber shell casings in the street in front of the studio. Three cars were damaged by the gunfire, which also shattered a glass window of the building. No injuries were reported.


Rick Ross who is currently in trouble with the law due to several misdemeanors was arrested for assault and kidnapping late June after he allegedly pistol whipped his employee for throwing a party at his house without his consent.The rapper was also arrested when police found weed in his car and arrested him on a misdemeanor marijuana charge.

It was an embarassment when Kim was given an impromptu spelling lesson.The realty TV star went on Twitter to complain about the Giorgio Armani brand,discontinuing her favourite foundation only for her to be called out on her spelling of 'Giorgio'.Spare her the blushes next time.



Kim tweeted , "Why did Georgio Armani discontinue my favorite foundation??? I'm on my last bottle & everyone I know uses this!!! Please make it again!"

The fashion brand was more than happy to help Kim who recently threw a party at Disneyland in California for North West who just turned 2 with their famous family and friends on Monday but also couldn't help but throw a little dig at her for her misspelling! "@KimKardashian Dear Kim, let us know which one you need and we'll send it to you. And Mr. Armani's first name is Giorgio."


Way to go.

Lil Wayne Signs To Jay Z's Roc Nation

After performing at Legacy Bay Area hip hop radio station 106 KMEL's annual summer jam, Cash Money(now former Cash Money)rapper,Lil Wayne announced he is now signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation label.

A video recording reveals Wayne telling the crowd "I just signed a deal with my motherfuckin idol Jay Z" without getting into further details.

What Wayne didn't say is whether that means he'll be releasing music through Roc Nation or that he simply joined their management roster. He almost signed to the label several years ago though, and his $51m worth of problems with Cash Money have been well publicised.

Jay Z claimed that he could have signed Wayne but didn't want to ruin his relationship with Cash Money's Baby.
Last year during an interview with Hot 97 Breakfast Club, Jay Z revealed how he almost signed Lil Wayne to Roc-A-Fella Records in 2008.

"The truth is after I had a meeting with Wayne, I had a relationship with Baby, when I used to go to New Orleans I would meet up with him," Hov said.


Weezy has been having issues with his Cash Money label boss,Baby for a while because his new album Tha Carter V which was scheduled for release on December 9 was delayed.The rapper went on a very public rant on Twitter about his grouse with the label.


"To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won't and hasn't been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it," Lil Wayne Tweeted.

To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won't and hasn't been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it.


Lil Wayne might join the likes of Vic Mensa, J. Cole and Rihanna on Roc Nation's artist roster or Big Sean, Meek Mill and Kanye West in tapping the Roc for management.

Jennifer Lopez Sued In Morocco For Provocative Performance

It was reported that Jennifer Lopez has been sued by a Moroccan group for indecent exposure and could spend two years in prison if found guilty.

According to the suit which was filed by an education group after the Latin singer performed at a concert that was aired on television, Ms. Lopez "disturbed public order and tarnished women's honor and respect."

J Lo's big ol butt in all its awe and perfection might have been inappropriate for the Moroccans as it was aired on public tv.Reports claim the concert featured all the hallmarks of a typical J.Lo show - skimpily clad dancers,provocative choreography and a lot of body emphasis.The 'I Am Real' singer who is no stranger to Morocco except their laws has performed in Morocco in the past without any issues but she has never had a performance that was aired on TV before.

Minister of Communication Mustapha Khalfi spoke on the seriousness of the charges.Complaints from viewers were mainly about the Latin singer's "suggestive poses" and "visible undergarments."


It wouldn't be out of place to alert Nicki Minaj to tick Morocco off her list of countries to visit.

It is a sibling for Nori as she is fondly called.It is no longer news that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting another child together. Kim made the announcement of her pregnancy in a clip following the mid-season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.


Unfortunately for the reality tv star,she is getting flack from people who think she is faking her pregnancy and has a surrogate on standby.This accusation didn't go down well with Kim as she went on a Twitter rampage and blasted her detractors in a couple of tweets.


Among people who think Kim Kardashian is faking her pregnancy is popular TV talk show host,Wendy Williams.Wendy told her audience on June 1 that she thinks Kim and Kanye West are going to use a surrogate and Kim "will buy prosthetics to baby up for every month.Wendy further said that Kim and Kanye "could possibly be using a surrogate from Thailand who's allegedly is living in Kanye's Manhattan Beach home,".

 

As expected,Kim fired back at Wendy and cleared the air on her pregnancy and the speculations that she is lying about her pregnancy because she's "worried about ruining her body."

Lil Wayne's tour bus allegedly attacked by Young Thug's road manager

According to reports,Lil Wayne's tour bus was allegedly shot up by a guy who has been linked with Wayne's rival, Young Thug.The suspect is named Jimmy Carlton Winfrey and he has been charged with several criminal offences including possession of a firearm by a felon and criminal gang activity.

Reports claim that Winfrey has been Young Thug's road manager which is incredibly relevant since Thug has been rivals with Wayne for months. Thug released a mixtape called "Tha Carter 6" mocking Wayne's long awaited album but changed it to "Barter 6" when he was threatened with a lawsuit.

Lil Wayne's tour bus got shot back in April as he was leaving a club gig in Atlanta. Police claim Winfrey is the man who shot up Weezy's bus in Atlanta last month and is actually Young Thug's road manager who was trying to gain status in the Bloods by "committing a high profile shooting of a rival rap artist."


Reports further claimed that the Atlanta Police Department arrested the suspect after securing an arrest warrant on May 21, 2015.
