Comedian Chris Rock started rumors last week when he tweeted a photo of himself in a recording studio with an accompanying line reading, “In the studio with Em don’t sleep.” For what it’s worth the man in question is blurred enough that it may not be Eminem.
Rock was questioned about his involvement with the album after his picture. “Uh, I can’t really say,” Rock replied to Fuse TV’s inquiry about whether or not he contributed. “Hey, hey, I was on the Kanye record — maybe I’m on the Eminem record. You never know.”
Rock was featured on Kanye West’s 2010 album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”
Eminem’s forthcoming album has been shrouded in mystery. The album has been hyped for a 2013 release but has yet to be announced with a set release date.
“We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013,” Dr. Dre said of Eminem’s next project. “He’s been working on it for some time. It’s safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we’re not exactly sure when. We’ve got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we’re trying to see what else lines up.”
NBA All-Star and humanitarian Luol Deng has spent 9 years with the Chicago Bulls, leading the team in both victory and defeat. JAY Z’s Life+Times spent some time with him off the courts to get a look into a day in his life as he prepared for the team’s playoff run.
While the elder Joyner initially attended the school from 1984 through 1988, he dropped out early to build his career, according to a profile on the Morehouse website. Years later, after his oldest son had began attending Morehouse, he decided he wanted to re-enroll and complete his degree.
While his son was initially shocked by his dad’s decision, he said he liked having him around on campus.
“We used to have a support system. Sometimes he would come to my room to ask about a problem or a class or a professor to take,” the younger Joyner told WXIA-TV.
In fact, the younger Joyner, an English major, said being on campus with his father, a religion major who plans to attend law school, was actually “natural.”
J.R. Smith Responds To Rihanna’s Instagram Diss
Yesterday the internet was chirping when word circulated that Rihanna had fired a couple of iShots at Knick baller J.R. Smith on Instagram.
Being that J.R. has been playing so terribly in the playoffs this season, many sports analyst point to J.R.’s penchant for poppin’ bottles with models well into the wee hours of the morning as the reason for his poor play.
That said, Rihanna’s little dig didn’t go unheard. ESPN New York sportswriter Ian Begley asked J.R. if he heard about his rumored ex-booty call’s comments and he posted this response on his Twitter page.

The saga continues over the heated family feud involving NBA superstar Kobe Bryant (pictured left) and his mother, Pamela (pictured below), regarding a planned auction of more than 100 collectibles from the baller’s past. Pamela alleges that her son gave her the memorabilia, which she had planned to sell, and Kobe vehemently denies this, stating that he wants to pass on the items to his children. Now Kobe’s dad,Joseph (pictured below), and grandmother, Mildred Cox, are siding with Pamela and have entered the courtroom battle as well, reports USA Today.
Gemar Mills’ (pictured) resume reads like someone who is much older. At 22 years old, he was already a high school math teacher at Newark’s Malcolm X Shabazz High School, eventually creating a 70 percent standardized test pass rate; by 25, he was the school’s department chair of Mathematics. Within a year of acquiring the position, Mills improved the math department’s functioning from 17 percent to 26 percent.
With his rapid progression, Mills was able to become the school’s principal at 29, in the 2011-12 school year.
But he had his work cut out for him.

Making it clear that it was “all love,” comedian Mike Epps’ hilarious parody of Cleveland hero Charles Ramsey is sure to cause all laughs.
There has been a lot of chatter up and down the interwebs about whether or not Ramsey has been getting the respect that he deserves for his heroic rescue of Amanda Berry, 27, which led to the rescues of Gina Dejesus, 23, Michelle Knight, 32, and Berry’s 6-year-old daughter.
Epps, of course, had to put his spin on it, but made it clear that he had nothing but respect for Ramsey:
Salute to Charles Ramsey a true HERO. All respect but I am Mike Epps and you know I had to get ya! All love.
The result is pure comedic gold!

1. Check yourself before you project yourself. When you start feeling upset or resentful, stop to ask yourself what’s going on inside of yourself before taking it out on the other person. Seriously, 99% of the time your issue isn’t even with your partner; you’re just projecting something onto them. A little self-reflection goes a long way.
2. Schedule some alone time. Make sure both of you are getting a little time alone to relax and recharge: even 15 minutes can make a huge difference. Also, if you tend be really social as a couple, make sure to schedule alone time together (sounds like an oxymoron, but it’s not!) as well, where you can just focus on each other without extra people around.
The program is interdisciplinary, encompassing four principal areas: arts and entrepreneurship; technology, design and marketability; concept and business platforms; and creating a prototype. Since there is no singular focus for the curriculum, faculty will convene from several schools within USC including the USC Marshall School of Business, the Thornton School of Music and the Viterbi School of Engineering.
During a game between the L.A. Temptation and the Seattle Mist Tuesday, the “Mist have the ball on a first-quarter drive. On second, Riki Creger-Zier pulls in hitch pass and takes it five yards for a first down before being pulled down by LA’s Ogom Chijindu,” according to Fox Sports.
After the tackle, Chijindu dropped down and started twerking on Creger-Zier’s head. The showboating play was a highlight in itself.
Kelly Rowland opens up to the public in a way she never has before on her new record “Dirty Laundry.” In the revealing song produced by The-Dream, the singer bares her soul as she airs dirty laundry about her past, from her insecurity when compared to her successful, pop star sister (assumed to be Beyonce) to an abusive relationship.
Here is a sampling of the lyrics:
“When my sister was onstage killing it like a m———–, I was in rage, feeling it like a m———–. Bird in a cage, you would never know what I was dealing with. Went our separate ways, but I was happy she was killing it. Bittersweet. She was up, I was down. No lie I feel good for her, but what do I do now? Forget the records, off the record, I was going through some b——-. Post Survivor, she on fire, who wants to hear my b——-? Meanwhile, this n—- putting his hands on me. Swear ya’ll don’t know the half of this industry.”
