T.I. tried to spread some Christmas cheer over the weekend by posting a video on his social networking site, updating fans on the recording of his upcoming album, Paper Trail, and offering remembrances of some of the friends he lost this year.

Standing in front of a fireplace, next to a towering Christmas tree in his Atlanta-area home, T.I. wishes everyone a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

"Sorry I couldn't be there with you to do it face-to-face," he tells fans. Reiterating his earlier video message, he thanks fans for their support and prayers, saying "they're definitely working, keep the prayer going up. I know God is listening."

Though he faces up to 10 years in prison, T.I. tells fans to focus on themselves and not to sweat his problems. "Don't worry about me, man," he says. "Find you something else to worry about. God got me covered."

The biggest gift to fans, though, is news that the rapper is "about 30 percent" done with the recordings for his next album and that "everything is going well; everything's going great." The one thing he does not talk about in the video is what he refers to as "the situation," i.e., his case, but he advises fans to keep a smile on their faces, " 'cause I got a smile on mine."

The clip ends with T.I. in a darkened room, reflecting on his unpredictable 2007 ride.

"One thing about adversity," he says solemnly. "It [gives] you character. And it tests your manhood, and everybody knows I'm good to last."


Since letting go of her demons, Mary has been killing them on the charts. Her last album, 2005's The Breakthrough, landed at #1 and scanned more than 727,000 units the first week of sales. This year's LP bowed at #2, selling more than 629,000 copies. That's great, but I thought it was interesting to see what topped MJB.......It seems Groban's Noël sold close to 756,600 units, pushing total sales of the disc past the 3.5 million mark. Groban's is the first Christmas album to ever top the chart for five straight weeks.
I say WTF to that....


WTF is going on with this Raz B drama?

It seems after accusing former B2K manager Chris Stokes of molesting him, he has now taken back his words. In a 30-second video posted on YouTube on Wednesday, DeMario "Raz-B" Thornton stands outside on a city street and recants the sordid accusations he and older brother Ricardo "Ricky Romantic" Thornton had made in a pair of videos that circulated over the weekend.

"This is DeMario Thornton, publicly known as Raz-B of B2K," a solemn-looking Thornton tells the camera in the video, called "The Truth About Chris Stokes B2K Part 3." "I would like to send a public apology for some tapes that were leaked without my authority. I just want to say that those allegations are not true ... with Chris Stokes and Marques Houston, [I] apologize for any hurt this may have caused publicly [or] financially."
Stokes reacted to the new video in a statement released Thursday (December 27) morning. "I'm happy that DeMario 'Raz-B' Thornton and Ricardo Thornton realized their mistakes and admitted to lying," he said, although Ricardo Thornton is standing by his claims. "I have always supported my family and have always been a stand-up person. I knew that the truth would eventually come to light."

Thornton's abrupt turnaround came just hours after Stokes told MTV News that the allegations were false. His denials were seconded by another former B2K member, Omarion.

"I'm not gay. And I'm married. And I have four kids. I been with my wife for 16 years," Stokes told MTV in an exclusive interview. "And I'm not a child molester. So those are all false allegations. I'm gonna sue them. And I owe that to my wife and kids, period. It's ridiculous."
The truce between Raz and Stokes doesn't appear to have been extended to Ricardo. After MTV reported on the apology, Ricardo told MTV News that he stands by all the original allegations and is not recanting his story. He said he hasn't spoken to his younger brother in more than a day — which he said was unusual for the siblings — and predicted that Raz will "come back around," suggesting that the apology might not have been his brother's idea.


Brandy is in the clear — according to TMZ, the Los Angeles city attorney will not be filing charges against the singer over the multi-car crash that claimed the life of a woman in December 2006.

The attorney had until the end of the day Friday (December 28) to file criminal charges against Brandy in the incident. The singer's attorney, Blair Berk, reportedly responded with a statement, saying, "These past 12 months have posed an extraordinary hardship for Brandy and her family, who have been unfairly forced to live under a cloud of suspicion initially caused by the ill-advised and premature press release sent out by the California Highway Patrol accusing Brandy of wrongdoing before the police investigation was even finished. However, Brandy continues to be mindful that she was so fortunate to be uninjured in this accident and there was a life lost that should be remembered."

Brandy is, however, still facing a $50 million wrongful-death suit from the family of the victim, Awatef Aboudihaj

I'm not mad at this. Unfortunately, accidents happen. How many times have we almost caused or even caused accidents?

Mom-to-be Jessica Alba was spotted over the Christmas holiday with a rock on her left ring finger – and the rumors are true: She and boyfriend Cash Warren are engaged, her rep confirms.

"I can confirm that they are engaged," says publicist Brad Cafarelli.

Fergie and Las Vegas sex symbol Josh Duhamel are engaged. "I feel like the luckiest girl in the world," the Black Eyed Peas singer, 32, said Saturday night after a performance at Atlantic City's Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
"I'm thrilled." News of the couple's engagement – they have been an item for three years – broke on Christmas Day. Yet when it comes to the specifics of how the question was popped, Fergie's lips are sealed.

"I'm not giving any details. I think [the fine points] are sacred," Fergie (real name: Stacy Ann Ferguson) explained on the red carpet outside club mur.mur, where she hosted an after-party. "It's just important to us."

Sooo……Omarion, has responded to the spoof interview going around the internet recent. In the interview, his close buddy, Bow Weezy is angered to the point of throwing hands when Toure rattles off a serious “odd” questions. BET informed the duo's label reps of the proposed mischief beforehand. However, the label didn't tell Bow and O because it was supposed to be for a good-natured, "Punk'd"-style show called "Hell Interview."

"Everything is good, man," he said. "You know how it is, sometimes when you're coming up in the game and you as young as we have been, sometimes people think they can — not necessarily push us around, but they feel they can play with us like that. If it had been 50 Cent or Game or any other man who would have stepped up in that interview, it would have went a lot differently. We want our respect, man. We want our respect as men. You don't just throw a man in a spoof interview and disrespect him. You have to respectfully talk to him. We didn't know it was a spoof, but I'm a little bit different when we handle situations. I'm very mild-tempered. I like to think about what I do before I do it. Bow gets upset."

O recently went on another BET program, "106 and Park," and dubbed himself "The King of Dance." He says he has plenty of ammo in his fancy-feet arsenal and knows he will definitely be scrutinized for wearing such a coveted crown, er, jacket — O announced his new title via an embroidered coat.

"It was time for me to claim that spot," he said. "It's gonna be very interesting for me to hold that name down, because I feel like I'm gonna go through something similar like when 'You Got Served' came out. When people saw the film, because it was such a confrontational film and hard-core dance film, I would get ran up in the street like, 'You wanna battle? I wanna battle you.' I felt I wanted to claim [the title]. I'm ready for the challenge. All challengers step up. ... I've been going at it in a professional sense since I was 5. I was a backup dancer at one point for a group that was on RCA. Dancing has been my life and it has been a major part of what I am today. I'mma claim it."

So, what is he claiming??? The imaginary title of best dancer. And who exactly is head of this committee? Let me stop before Bow Wow comes whip my a**


According to the NY Post, mommy-to-be Jennifer Lopez was all smiles at Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman's wedding - except when she got two blasts from the past in the form of ex-boyfriends.
Among the celebs sending warm wishes via video to Weinstein and Chapman were two of Lopez's previous beaus, Ben Affleck and Sean "Diddy" Combs. "Jennifer was laughing at all the funny tributes," said one guest. "But when Diddy and Ben gave their speeches, she went silent. She looked sort of uncomfortable and people were staring at her." Lopez attended with husband Marc Anthony.

Ciara parties it up in London last night.


Britney Spears's 16-year-old sister Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant.

Nickelodeon, which carries her TV show Zoey 101, said in a statement: "We respect Jamie Lynn's decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn's well being."
Spears and her mother confirmed the pregnancy to OK! magazine, saying she was 12 weeks along and the father is Jamie Lynn's longtime boyfriend Casey Aldridge.
"It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected," Jamie Lynn told OK!, according to the Associated Press.
"I was in complete and total shock and so was he." Spears told the magazine that after confirming the pregnancy with a home test and a subsequent doctor's visit, she told only one friend – then waited two weeks before telling anybody else, including her parents. "I needed to work out what I would do for myself before I let anyone's opinion affect my decision," she told the magazine. "Then I told my parents and my friends. I was scared, but I had to do what was right for me."

"I didn't believe it because Jamie Lynn's always been so conscientious," her mother, Lynne Spears, told OK!. "She's never late for her curfew. I was in shock. I mean, this is my 16-year-old baby."
D*mn! This is sad. What's going on in this family?


So now that Selita got her two cents of fame and Nick Cannon got the karma that was due him after being so messy with Christina Milian, the actor/ rapper/ mogul?? says they're "still cool." (Wasn't that what he said about Christina just before she dropped that diss track?? Just asking...)

For those of you who can't remember, Cannon popped the question in May with an over-the-top proposal on a Times Square JumboTron.

Now that the breakup is behind them, Ebanks and Cannon still share the occasional dinner, she tells the December issue of Esquire. But he's not the only man in her life. Page Six reports that Ebanks traded in her rapper for preppy tennis pro, James Blake. Los Angeles spies told Page Six the model has been spotted with Blake on the Left Coast. "They met in LA and have been dating seriously," said our source.

Never ones to steer clear of grisly details, the folks at TMZ have posted the eight-minute 911 call made in the wake of Donda West's collapse last month. The disturbing recording consists primarily of a dispatcher attempting to coach a panicked, unidentified caller on how to perform CPR. The post has garnered a heated reaction, with TMZ users calling it "tasteless," "insensitive," "sick," "morbid" and "worse than grave-robbing."
My sentiments exactly.


It seems Toure can get under Bow Wow's skin like no other. B got a little hot around the collar when Toure asked friend Omarion if he ever steals moves from Chris Brown. Then adding fuel to fire, Toure paid O a compliment for the video "Naked," - a track done by "brother" Marques Houston.

Toure was wrong for that.

In an interview with, Jay addressed the rumors about him leaving Def Jam. "The model of selling CDs has changed," he said. "So doing things the typical way is not in the best interests of anyone and not exciting for me. My whole thing is, how do we invest in the future? If everyone is committed to doing that, then I'm sure there's a deal to be made."
In the interview, Jigga also beamed about Amy Winehouse ("I'd love to work with her again. I hope she keeps herself together"), and revealed that he'll put out another album "if I'm inspired. I have one album left, right? If I'm inspired to make that album, then my contract is done and I'm not in the music business anymore, as far as being an artist. I can still make music. ... Who knows? The possibilities are endless — and without any pressure to sell anything, I could make whatever and do whatever with my music. Maybe the songs would just play in [my] 40/40 [Club]."


Alicia performed at the Z 100 Jingle Ball this weekend.
