Nicki Minaj: Lil’ Kim Can Be A Nasty Character

Published by Runteldat on Monday, December 6, 2010 at 12:00 am.

In a new feature for the New York Times’ T magazine, Nicki Minaj was asked yet again but about her beef with Lil’ Kim.

Of course, Kimberly Jones is the one who started it but nevertheless it remains a topic of discussion.

The feature was centered on Nicki’s style, but the current hottest female rapper on the planet was asked if their rift hurts female rappers overall:

NYT: I thought it was also very important to show you in the studio, producing, writing on the fly, showing yourself as a creative person.

Well, it’s hard to be a female rapper but it’s more tough being credited with the work that you put in as a female rapper because people assume that you’re not the brains behind the operation or that you’re not the one doing writing these lyrics. So letting people come into my world and see that I am doing these things is good for all girls.

NYT: That brings up an interesting point because I would be pretty remiss not to mention your spat with Lil’ Kim. When she badmouths you and others doesn’t that just make it even harder for female rappers?

It does, it does. But the thing that I want to promote is that if you see someone doing their thing, give them their props. We all have it hard and face the same challenges as female emcees. Show some mutual love and respect for each other so that it doesn’t get nasty. And she can be a nasty character.

Another point for Nicki.

Nick Cannon on Mariah: May or May Not be Pregnant

Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

 

Okay, I saw the pictures just like everyone else: Mariah preforming in Brazil looking like she’s gained some weight. Baby weight? Maybe, or maybe homegirl’s just been enjoying her meals lately — nothing wrong with that!  Whatever the case, her husband Nick Cannon decided to speak on the “is she is or is she ain’t” debate yet AGAIN on the radio.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it time and time again — when my wife feels like talking about whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her.”

Honestly … I say this to you so you can tell whoever it is you’ve got to tell, we all know it’s extremely personal, and it is for a woman to deal with things with her body, and especially when dealing with the idea of childbirth and all that stuff,” he answered.

We know that we’re public figures and that’s something, but … that’s something that you want to keep near and dear … until you’re 100 percent sure in any situation,” Cannon continued.

There’s a certain time limit that you’re supposed to wait before you actually can officially say that you are. You’ve got to take all those things into factor and it gets really heightened when you’re one of the most famous people in the world because you don’t want to mislead anybody,” Nick added.

Why all the “maybe, maybe not” chatter?  People’s already reporting that Mariah’s been wearing clothes from maternity lines. Radar Online is reporting that Mariah is 4 month’s pregnant but the couple is not talking about it yet. We’ve heard these types of reports for years, but this time it seems like Nick might’ve been trying to imply that it’s a go, but that Mariah is waiting until after the first trimester to confirm, like most women do.  I feel him — if that’s the case, but if it’s not: dude, “no” is a one word sentence!  At least we know if Mariah is pregnant her husband isn’t going to be the one to tell it, so…we’re over it.  In other news, Lil’ Kim is teaming up with her cousin Katrise Jonesto open Salon Se Swa spas in North Carolina and Atlanta…. Getting your hair done at a ‘Lil Kim-owned salon? I’ll really leave that one alone!

Drake on Lil’ Kim’s Latest Diss: ‘I Really Don’t Care’

Published by Dior Noir on Thursday, June 17, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

This  Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj “beef” is getting old, just like Kim who should be secure enough in her status as a female rap icon not to be playing around arguing with youngins! Drake found himself in the middle of the feud when he called Nicki the “baddest woman to do this rap sh-t” and unnecessarily added “I don’t give a f-ck what Lil’ Kim or nobody else is talking about, you’re the baddest chick to ever do this sh-t!” Which prompted Kim to fire back and say: “How b-tchy do you look right now? You look like a straight pussy…You came at me, and I’m the f-king female.”

Of course in an effort to keep the drama going, Drake was asked in a radio interview what he thought about Kim’s comments. He replied:   

I really dont’ care. My biggest thing is sometimes I get a little impulsive when people start talking about people that I love.  I really don’t care what you say about me, you can say whatever about me, I’ll never respond to it, I’ll never react to it but when you start talking about the people I love I do get a little more reactive and that’s all that happened right there.”  He added a little jab at the end: “Like I said Nicki’s got album’s that’s climbing the charts and ‘Thank Me Later’ is out…it’s about relevant people today.”

See it’s all those snide little remarks that keep this BS going! Hopefully Kim’s done with the verbal ping poing and doesn’t have to have the last word, because you  know what’s definitely not relevant? Having silly arguments over wigs and jacking styles.

What’s your take on this foolishness?

Biggie’s First Baby Mama Speaks Up About the Movie, ‘Lil Kim and Faith

Published by Dior Noir on Monday, March 15, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

notorious_big-daughter

We rarely hear a peep out Jan Jackson, the mother of Biggie’sfirst child T’yanna Wallace, 16, but Chicago’s Power 92 radio host Sam Sylk was able to get her to speak on the 13th anniversary of Biggie’s death. She had some interesting things to say about Big’s life movie and the other notorious players he left behind (here’s looking at you Faith, ‘Lil Kim and Diddy). Check it:  

What are your thoughts and take on [Notorious ] the movie?
“I think the movie was fine for what it was, two hours, you can’t put everything in two hours but I think the way the movie flowed it was OK.”

You thought that you were depicted pretty well?
“No not accurately but I think the movie flowed well.”

‘Lil Kim was a little hurt, she was a little salty about it, what are you thoughts on that?
“Well, if she’s salty I guess I should be salty too because her character they actually cleaned up and my character they dumbed down who should be more upset? I’m just saying in the movie the way it looks they had her going to work every day to this nice job with this nice white blouse on and the black skirt and they have me in a jean jacket. I’m saying I don’t have a problem with that because it’s not my movie, it wasn’t about me. Whatever Big did to me the movie flows perfectly so I’m all for it but when you’re speaking about if you’re upset about it ['Lil Kim] why? It’s not your life story and I’m sure you will have an opportunity to make your life story, unlike me, who I’m never going to get to say what the real deal was. I’m fine with that.”

What was the real deal, how did you find out about ‘Lil Kim?
“Christopher passed away. I mean, that was my daughter’s father and we had a very nice relationship, but why would he be telling me about his side chicks?”

I thought you probably just busted him about it though?
“No because I wouldn’t really care. All I would really care about are the people who would have contact with my daughter.”

Everyone wants to know how’s your relationship with Faith?
“That’s my boo boo, that’s my wife-in-law. Mmm hmm.”

Ya’ll tight, keeping it going? Making sure those kids are kicking it?
“You have to, they’re all they have, it’s just the two of them so they need to be together.”

What are you thoughts on not being able to find Biggie’s murderer?
“At this point you have to find some kind of closure in what you have.  To be honest with you I don’t see it ever being solved so I’ve come to grips with that.”

Tell me your favorite Biggie song.
“Who Shot Ya, I’m from Brooklyn, come on, of course that’s my favorite.”

Does Diddy check in on you all?
“I don’t have a relationship with him, but he has somewhat of a  relationship with my daughter if you want to call it that.” 

Does he spend money on her?
“No my daughter’s pretty well taken care of so he doesn’t need to step up to the plate, and he doesn’t, but they have a relationship.”

Does she want to be in the entertainment industry?
“My daughter wants to be a fashion designer so that’s what she’s doing. She draws, she creates, she makes, she sells so that’s what we’re focusing on her going to college and getting her fashion degree.”

Lil’ Kim’s Fan Site Shuts Down

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 at 12:00 am.

lil_kim

Lil’ Kim has always had a very dedicated following, but apparently after all these years even the most loyal fan might want to throw in the towel.

The people behind Lil Kim Fan Zone – the most popular Lil’ Kim fan site around – told the YBF that they’re officially done with the Queen Bee.

Apparently the drama started after the fan site reached out to Kim’s assistant after growing concerned about her bleached appearance and alleged odd behavior. The fans think Kim’s being brainwashed by a bunch of yes people.

Here’s what they told the YBF:

“We all know recently Lil Kim (or Ho Chi Min as you call her lol) has been wearing terrible make up and making bad career choices. So just recently (2-27-10) the fans spoke out on twitter to her assistant and new right-hand man football player Bryant Mckinnie. And they LASHED out at the entire Lil Kim Zone Forum. LilKimZone.Net is the bases of Kim’s hard core fans. We’re not some new fans. We have been holding her down for at least 15 years, and this is the thanks we get? We only expressed how we feel that Kim is the being misled to think she looks ok and it needs to stop. Not only did they get defensive but they got racial, and homophobic.

I send you this email because this needs to be exposed, Kim needs help, this could be the beginning to her intervention. We as the fans honestly believe she is being brain washed, and that she is surrounded by YES men. We dont want her to end up like Michael Jackson or Anna Nicole Smith, because we are lead to believe drugs are involved.”

Kim’s current assistant tweeted: “hurting herself with her own actions its people like you that f*ck up her pictures n post them on there site! If u r for her”

Those grammatical failures aside, the fans aren’t responsible for Kim’s face, she is. A former assistant countered these claims by reiterating the fan site operators’ sentiments.

As you all may remember, Kim doesn’t like to be asked about her appearance so I doubt this will matter either. But are her fans in the wrong or is there something to their allegations?

Lil Kim’s Getting Lighter

Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, February 3, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

lilkim-mess369
No, that’s not ‘Lil Kim on her way to join the “We Are the World” ensemble, that’s ‘Lil Kim arriving in Miami yesterday to get the party started early for Super Bowl weekend. A little bit of fun in the sun might do the Queen Bee some good!

Kim is getting much lighter these days. She might just need to get familiar with the right shade of MAC but rumor has it  she bleaches her skin. Is she ever going to finish morphing? She already had the plastic look on lock hard enough to secure a retirement career as a back up Barbie for Nicki Minaj.

Let’s just hope ‘Lil Kim drops an album soon. In a minute we won’t even be able to recognize her!

Weekend Fix: Chris Brown, 50 Cent, ‘Lil Kim

Published by Dior Noir on Friday, November 13, 2009 at 3:00 pm.

Wendy Williams Chris Brown

Chris Brown had to know it wouldn’t be an easy road back into the public’s good graces, but he thinks people are perceiving him wrong.  The notorious singer sat down with Wendy Williams on her show today to debut his new music video “Crawl” and told the daytime diva: “I think the steps that I’ve taken to show that I’m sorry probably have been perceived wrong,” Chris admitted. “Certain things that I’m doing in different interviews – how my posture is, how I’m acting. At the end of the day I’m definitely remorseful; it’s not something I take lightly – thinking like it’s under the rug.

Rihanna fans sure aren’t ready to sweep the incident under the rug.  The New York Post posted a video of a Chris Brown appearance at a Foot Action Store yesterday where one bystander had some words for him: “fu—ing beater!” and “I hope someone beats the fu–ing s–t out of you!” Ouch!

Reunited?

50 Cent told Houston radio station 97.9 Vivica Fox will be back in his life. The rapper told that the actress is going to be in his next music video and said the two are still “friends” although he wouldn’t confirm whether or not they’re together  again (he did say for the 50 million time he’s not with Ciara).  Fiddy and Ms. Fox had a short romance back in 2007. Wonder if they’ll be an item again? If he wants to have a “baby by” her though he might want to get on that soon, Viv is 45!

About the Benjamins

‘Lil Kim may be a lot of things but her people want to you to know that trifling is not one of them. Earlier this week TMZ reported that the rapper bailed on six gigs in London after pocketing a $20,000 fee and blamed it all on a nosebleed. Today AllHipHop.com reports that ‘Lil Kim’s people shot back and said she never saw a dime of those Benjamins from the company who claims to have paid her up front. “We do not have a contract with Abstrakt Visions Entertainment and never received any money from them,” a spokesperson for the rapper said.  “Abstrakt Visions Entertainment is in the wrong for falsely promoting Lil Kim in London and will be dealt with accordingly. This matter is in the hands of our legal team.”

Uncle Sam Wants YOU Chris Tucker and Diddy

Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 3:00 pm.

did
Haven’t we all learned by now that the IRS doesn’t play when it comes to getting their money (Exhibit A: Wesley Snipes and Ron Isley)?  Apparently not.

According to the Detroit News the state of California filed a $3,594,409 lien against Chris Tucker last week for four years worth of unpaid taxes!  No wonder we haven’t seen him around lately, he’s probably busy ducking the tax folks like their name was Big Worm.

Chris hit a career jackpot with the Rush Hour franchise pulling in $20 million a flick, so not really sure what the problem is but considering  the state of California is in a $31 billion debt crisis you know the “Governator” Arnold Schwarzenegger and his people will be back for those ends.

Diddy also owes the IRS back taxes, reports DrewReports.com, though his amount is much smaller at $7,373. Apparently back in 2007 Sean underpaid the federal tax for his Atlanta branch of Justin’s restaurant. Diddy’s people say that it was an address mishap and the IRS was mailing the business papers to an address that the producer hasn’t used in 10 years (right, because snail mail is the only way that the IRS gets in touch with folks?).  Diddy’s reps also say that when he found out about the debt he wrote a check for the amount which should be arriving to the IRS “shortly.” Until that check is signed, sealed, delivered and cashed (hopefully it’s not of the rubber variety), I’m sure the IRS won’t be too impressed with that statement.

Why do celebrities, think that they can escape paying taxes with some having the audacity to let the debt roll on for years (Exhibit B: Lil’ Kim, Foxy BrownMethod Man, Robin Givens, Xhibit, Ruben Studdard, Damon Dash, the list goes on)?  If you have time to brag about your bankroll, party about town, go on shopping sprees and vacations you have the time to dial up your accountant and settle your debt by April 15th.  Priorities people!

Weekend Fix: The Game Disses Jay and Bey; Plus Lil’ Kim and Lil’ Wayne News

Published by Dior Noir on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 3:00 pm.

game-jay-z

The Game is not playing! For years the Compton rapper has been taking shots at Jay-Z, but he upped the ante recently (guess he really, really needs some publicity?) taking the drama overseas.  In a  concert in Madrid The Game repeatedly chanted “Fu–k Jay-Z….old ass ni–a” (and even got the crowd to join in!) before spitting a diss rap over Hov’s “D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)” beat. He let the low blows roll and even took shots at Beyonce rapping:

This isn’t about Beef/This isn’t about Destiny/I’m in Madrid banging the c-p-t/You got a bad b–ch word?/Ain’t no pu–y like hers?/Just ask the Mavericks, Rockets, and the Spurs/ I mean… I mean my b–ch don’t slang p–sy like that.”

Wilin’!  Now Jay has previously said that he won’t be responding to The Game’s taunts, but I wonder what he’ll have to say now that Bey’s name has been dragged into the picture?

In other crazy performance news: Lil’ Kim is scheduled to take the stage with Cyndi Lauper at a concert to honor South African President Nelson Mandela’s 91st birthday. All I want to know is who approved that!? While I’ve been know to get down to a Queen Bee song or two, somehow I can’t imagine the elderly Mandela rocking to “Big Momma Thang” overseas. Other performers include Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, Wyclef, Aretha Franklin, will.i.am and err T-Pain (doesn’t he seem a little out of place on this bill too? He better not wear that “Big A– Chain” he’s been rocking as of late!). Should be an interesting production to say the least.

Meanwhile, Lil Wayne’s being sued yet again for blowing off a concert. TMZ reports that Red City Entertainment is coming after Weezy for $432,000 for failing to appear at his own concert in the Bahamas (police went to check on the rapper when he didn’t show and found him unconscious). Wayne just canceled a European tour citing “health problems” earlier this month and has been sued for flaking on concerts in the past. I don’t know what’s wrong with this man, but I know one thing: with all these baby mamas and new tots on the way, he needs to stop playing and make that money. Those child support bills are about to start piling up real soon!

Kim Wants To Be Hardcore Again

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 11:50 am.

lilkim23

I love it when it suddenly dawns on artists that they might want to stick with the sound that made them popular several years after most of their fan base has been chased away.

Such is the case for Lil’ Kim, who now claims she will be taking it back to her Hardcore days on her new album.

On her new project, Kim said:

“Album should be out in a few months. We don’t have a set date yet but the song ‘Download’ is featuring T-Pain and Charlie Wilson is doing very well and I’m excited about that ’cause it’s been a long time since I made my rounds. But I got another song that’s with a producer named Detail, he’s a Konvict Music producer and I love this song. I can’t tell y’all the name yet ’cause it might be the next single but just know that this album, I’m feeling real sexy and nasty y’all, so it’s gonna be an upgrade of Hardcore.”

For much of Kim’s core fan base, the opening line to “Big Momma Thang” was a life changer, so it makes sense for her to go back to the sound that made her a household name.

Here’s to hoping she goes back to a grittier flow, too. With respect to the Queen Bey, rap-singing isn’t what made her popular. Spitting hard like dudes was. Brooklyn bombshell in, Malibu Barbie out.

Speak your piece: Can Lil’ Kim make a comeback if she takes it back to 1996 or is it too little too late?
