So, it seems that this story isn’t going away.

Recently, photos surfaced on the Net that appeared to be rapper Rick Ross wearing a correctional officer’s uniform. But the Miami rapper has adamantly denied being the person in the photo.

“My life is 100% real. These online hackers putting a picture of my face when I was a teenager in high school on other peoples’ body.,” Ross said in a statment. “If this s**t was real don’t you think they would have more specifics, like dates and everything?”

“I’m in the entertainment business and a lot of people who like to hate because I’m on top of my game…Like I said before my life is 100% real. I live by this die by this. Fake pictures are created by the fake, meant to entertain the fake.”

Unfortunately, despite his attempts to distance himself from any affiliation with law enforcement, the Department of Corrections (DoC) records show that Ross did, in fact, work as a correctional officer for 18 months. Ross (real name: William Leonard Roberts) was appointed a prison guard in December 1995 at a salary of 22,913.54, according to personnel records.

So who exactly leaked this fact….according to the rumor mill it may have been Trick Daddy.

Footage of an interview has surfaced wherein Ross was asked what he thought about Trick telling people he was a corrections officer. Ross responded by saying the allegations were false and that Trick was a "sucker" (and that was probably the nicest thing he said) for trying to falsely blow him up. The only problem is, Trick says he never did go around telling people about his fellow Miami native's past — right side of the law or otherwise.

"Me and Ross had a clear understanding 'bout the whole station," Trick said. "The video [interview] comes from an attempt to start a beef like two or three years ago. Some people around you don't mean you good. After figuring that out, those people are no longer in the situation. When this whole thing came out, it had nothing to do with me. Then all of sudden this video popped up on [the Net]. I'm a man. I don't do sh-- like that."

"The only thing I can say to that is, I'm a grown man," Trick insisted. "I'm definitely not gonna [let] nobody make me say something negative. I'm a Rick Ross fan. A lot of years ago, a lot of people wanted me and Rick Ross to have this problem with one another, and they almost succeeded from what you can see in the video. The video is very old. It's two or three years old. As far as that situation, he was given some bad advice. He's a very talented person. It seems like me and Ross was going through some type of problems. I don't have problems with nobody, period. I don't care what the video says. Me and Ross never had problems. That was somebody lying."

Trick is also supposedly upset at the rumors that he might be behind the prison-guard photos that have recently popped up. Trick said he's heard ridiculous innuendo that he was behind those pictures surfacing after all these years.

"You know how the media go," he rationalized. "I'm just surprised it comes from so many so-called professional people that they would even involve my name in that. I had nothing to do with that from day one. They don't need to make up lies like I leaked pictures or I'm beefing with Plies and Rick Ross. Definitely not Rick Ross — that's my homeboy."

Trick and Ross did speak just days ago, and everything was on sturdy ground. "He's working on his album, man," Trick said. "The media tries to do what they do. You can't stop. You gotta get money."

GV Says: Who cares. Also, why is it a bad thing that he was a correctional officer? Why is that Ross was quick to confess to slinging drugs but denies having a decent, respectable job. Wow....that speaks volumes of that genre. I'm acutally embarassed.


Snoop Dogg is never one to do the expected.

This time he has teamed up with the reigning king of Indian films, Akshay Kumar, to record the title track for the actor's upcoming Bollywood epic, Singh is Kinng. In the accompanying music video, Dogg dresses in traditional grand sardar style. According to producer Vipul A. Shah, Snoop hopes to break into the booming Indian film scene.....WTF???

"Snoop wants to do a Hindi movie with Akshay, as he is really keen on wooing the Indian audiences," Shah said in a statement. "The most interesting aspect of the song is that one gets to see two very different styles – hip-hop with Snoop and Bhangra with Akshay," says Shah. "Their chemistry was worth seeing as they're superstars from two different worlds. To say the least, the video is looking brilliant!"

GV Says: WTF????

Looks like Michelle Williams' album is being pushed back. On her blog she writes:

I am so sorry about the news of my album!!! Trust me......when they told me I was numb for two days and couldn't talk to anybody!!! I had sooooooooooooo many questions of as to why they'd push my album back three weeks before the original release date!!!! I will be honest and say that I am disappointed becuz I feel like we should've been doing more 3 months ago to promote my album instead of waiting to the last minute to change the date!!!! I have thought about EVERYTHING!!! Columbia Records is saying that they need more time to properly set up the album to ensure its success!!! So let's make some lemonade out of the lemons!!! This could very well be a blessing in disguise!!! Plus there are still many people who didn't even know my album was coming out August 12th anyway. I know you guys are LIVID but let's keep the energy POSITIVE!!!! Things will work out for the good!!!! I will still WIN!!!!!
