That date was arrived at after Brown suffered an alleged mild heart attack in October and was unable to attend his wife's deposition. In new court papers, obtained by "Extra," officials note, "The relationship (between Brown and his lawyers) has deteriorated to the extent that effective communication is no longer feasible."

Oh-Uh, Michael Jackson has removed Paul McCartney's voice from a recording of their 1982 duet "The Girl Is Mine", according to reports. The 49-year-old King of Pop has remixed tracks on his Thriller album for its 25th anniversary re-release in 2008 — with some radical changes. The music legends were friends at the time but fell out after Jackson bought the publishing rights to around 200 Beatles songs for $A54 million in 1985. King of pop Michael Jackson is set to stage a comeback next year after the new Thriller release in February and a Jackson Five reunion tour.

Chart topping R&B Artist Neyo was one of the artists that performed on Last night's Larry King Live Christmas special on CNN. He did "Because of you." and another track. Enjoy it!
The suit also names as defendants Viacom (VIAB) and BET, which produced and aired the television show. James Prince, who also goes by the name J Prince and who's head of Rap-A-Lot Records, and employee Thomas Randle claim that their pictures were shown on American Gangster promotional spots with the word "murderers" stamped over the photos. They further claim that an episode of the show that aired October 10 falsely linked them to a notorious Chicago street gang called The Gangster Disciples. "Neither Mr. Prince nor Mr. Randall [sic] has ever been convicted of any felony offenses, let alone murder," an attorney for Prince and Randle states in court papers filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Houston. After the show's original air date, Apple, BET, and Viacom "caused the show to be made available for purchase by digital download on the iTunes Store provided by defendant Apple," the suit claims. Prince claims the show's widespread distribution on television and over the Internet has damaged a reputation he's worked hard to build through various community endeavors in the Houston area. Prince and Randle are asking the court to order Apple, BET, and Viacom to cease distribution of the American Gangster episode and are also seeking unspecified damages. The defendants, including Apple, have yet to file a formal response. However, the very fact that a lawsuit has been filed over content available through iTunes may cause Apple to take a hard look at its procedures for vetting material offered for sale on the store. The suit highlights how the digital download business has placed tech vendors like Apple, and rival Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT), in the unfamiliar position of facing the same content-related liability issues that traditional publishers have stared down for years.

Here's Bishop Don Juan at Pimp C's funeral. Jay-Z who asked Pimp C to jump on the Big Pimpin’ track was noticeably absent. We hear Jay and Snoop did not attend because the police said they could not provide extra SECURITY for them. That's sick! Here is how the AP described Bishop’s entrance to the funeral service:
The funeral attracted a heavy police presence, including FBI agents. It also attracted Pimp C’s fellow rappers, including Bun B, Slim Thug, Chamillionaire, Mike Jones and Willie D of the Geto Boys.
Bishop Don Juan, a self-described pimp and spiritual adviser to the stars, arrived just minutes before the ceremony ended, causing a stir as he sauntered down the aisle with an entourage of women scantily clad in gold and red while he gave a fire-and-brimstone sermon. He was holding a pimp cup and wore a foot-tall crown and a blue velvet cape.
I guess that is how you send a pimp off to heaven.

Take a look at the video and look closely at the baby bump.............Is that why she quit the group? I have a long lost interview with her that's in my other computer which is abroad. One day, we'll play it.
On the cocaine scandal shown on Croatian TV: 50 Cent was caught in the middle of cocaine scandal after he was captured on Croatian national TV allegedly snorting cocaine backstage at a concert in Zagreb, Croatia. Croatia Radio Television reporter Ante Batinovic was supposed to wait outside the rapper's dressing room for an interview, but it appeared that he misunderstood a request to stay where he was and walked into a backstage area during a local channel's live news show during which he accidentally found Fiddy and two members of his posse, as claimed by Croatian news, snorting lines of cocaine off a table.
Iran has declared rap music illegal and says it will hunt down rap artists who attempt to reach local audiences. There is nothing wrong with this type of music in itself," the official for evaluation of music at the culture and Islamic guidance ministry told Iran's IRNA news agency. "But due to the use of obscene words by its singers this music has been categorized as illegal," he said. The CBC reports.
LA Times' Robert Lloyd talks about Snoop's reality show "Fatherhood" which premiered this past Saturday.
Like Ozzy Osbourne, the George Washington of the genre, Snoop has no problem playing the butt of the joke: He's the father as child. Although coming attractions suggest that we will eventually see him at work, in the first episodes he's as randomly occupied as Ozzie Nelson, and, like Ozzie, spends a lot of time thinking about food. Sneaking fried chicken, which wife Shanté has cut from his menu, is about as bad as he gets.
We heard nothing about Snoop's real adventures in porn and pimping, his near-divorce in 2004, his early incarceration and ongoing brushes with the law. Some kinds of reality are more appropriate to this venue than others, obviously, and with a name out of "Peanuts" and a manner to which the word "laconic" barely does justice, the star can seem darn near cuddly. Shanté, for her part, has a spark and an ease that suggest she might do well playing someone other than herself, in some other, wholly, unashamedly invented context.

The recording will compete in the rap performance by a duo or group category with tracks from Common featuring Kanye West, Fat Joe featuring Lil Wayne, Shop Boyz, and a partnership among West, Nas and KRS-One.
"While this nomination is bittersweet to say the least, I am thankful for the acknowledgment," Freeman said in a statement. "And as this was a lifelong dream for Chad, it warms my heart to know that he has finally gotten the recognition from the powers that be that his talent, passion and relentless drive for music so rightfully deserved."

Rumors of a label change have been rife in the music industry after Jay-Z was reported to be unhappy with Def Jam following the appointment of producer/performer Jermaine Dupri as the president of their urban music division in February this year. But now the rapper could have the decision made for him as his contract with Universal is due to expire at the end of this month and negotiations for a renewal have so far proved unsuccessful.

Who's animating Weezy? OMG, Rap superstar Lil' Wayne will make his animated debut next month as a character on the season finale of the Award-winning cartoon, The Boondocks. The rapper will play a character named 'Nique' in episode #212, which is titled "Invasion of the Katrinians" and focuses on arriving survivors of Hurricane Katrina.
Who in their late minds doesn't know that former gangster Snoop Dogg is now a Snooperhero as he has mained streamed his life. In a predominantly white female audience, he was cheered as a role model as Ellen Degeneres was doing a show about dogs yesterday. At first I was like......I hope she doesn't ask for another dog and that Iggy fracas starts all over again. After the SPCA guy was done showing her so many different dogs, she goes........"we'll be right back with one more dog" and out come Rapper Snoop Dogg very well dressed, suit and all! The audience full of women went BONKERS! Great job the Producers did there.
Snoop then talked about his reality show on E! Fatherhood and bought Corey, his lovely daughter with him. She was so funny. He then performed his latest single "Sexy and Sensual" from the upcoming February 2008 album. What a blast on the Ellen show! Oprah won't have any Rappers on her show. She's missing a lot! Kanye West has been the exception. You all know why......

The set will also house a DVD with Jackson's Thriller short films, which have been digitally remastered — "Thriller," "Beat It" and "Billie Jean" — as well as his Emmy-nominated performance of the latter song on 1983's "Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever" TV special. Lastly, it will also have an exclusive Jackson-penned greeting to his fans. While the Thriller deluxe edition doesn't drop until February, the Jackson action actually starts in December when he releases a new single and launches a new global-marketing campaign.......I know he misses his mom Donda so much but life has to go on.
"The drama behind the scenes has become so disruptive that it threatens the start of the tour," blogger Sandra Rose wrote this week, referring to Brown's Up Close and Personal tour, scheduled to launch Dec. 6 in Cincinnati.
She continued: "My source tells me exclusively that Chris Brown has been intimate with his manager since she met him at the tender age of 16! And furthermore, he is 'madly in love with her' . . . apparently, Chris' mom Joyce recently became aware of the situation and is not at all happy."
"Normally I wouldn't report a story like this without solid proof," Rose wrote. "But my source is well-placed and very credible. This is the same source who gave me the scoop on Tameka Foster's pregnancy before anyone else reported it. I have learned never to doubt my source."
In denying the allegations, Brown's camp released the following statement:
"Chris Brown and his manager, Tina Davis have a strictly professional relationship. Ms. Davis has been instrumental in helping Chris achieve success as a multi-talented singer/dancer/actor. Rumors that the relationship goes beyond a working one, are not only patently false; they diminish her efforts and his undeniable talents."

"Beyonce wants to try something completely different," a source tells British newspaper The Sun. "She's a fan of country music and thought that would be an interesting and exciting way to go. She contacted Amanda early this week and she is going over to work with her.
Thursday morning shot to death while her small children were there. "A 42-year-old mother of two young children was shot and killed late Wednesday night in her Algiers home while her kids were there. The children were not physically harmed, according to police."
Police said Bryant’s husband was out of town when she was killed, but he arrived at the scene before noon and was visibly upset. Carrie St. Cyr, the mother of the victim, told Eyewitness News Reporter Jill Hezeau that Bryant just got married in October. She said Wednesday was her birthday and the family had gone out to dinner to celebrate. Imagine being killed on your own birthday. VERY SAD!
