After posting this story about Kandi Burress’ new boo, Willis McGahee of the Baltimore Ravens, I received quite a few anonymous emails clarifying the number of children that Willis has.

Initially, I posted that Willis has two children, because at the time that is all that I could confirm. This blog is simply for entertainment, and although I’m no journalist, I check my sources, which is why I rarely post anything that I’m emailed anonymously.

With that said, a few women are saying the exact same thing about Willis.

Peep TWO emails that I received after the skip, along w/ a pic of him with 4 of his children.

This may be a bad joke, but it’s BET’s Hip-Hop Awards, so it probably isn’t.

Ne-Yo Gives Hackers the ‘Middle Finger’…”Hackers, Die Slow.”

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

Ne-yo has a message for hackers, Fuck you very  much. Yes, on an early Saturday morning, we bring you the vulgarity.

Those weren’t his exact words, but he is pissed to the 10th power with how half his album has already leaked.

Friday morning he took to twitter to vent: “ALL HACKERS DIE SLOW!! It’s stealing plain and simple! There’s places where they cut people’s hands off for less! Y’all SUCK!!!!!To be clear, twitter hackers don’t effect me. I’m talking about hackers leaking more than half my damn album!! It’s STEALING. Damn shame…I work my ass off when it comes to my music! Blood, sweat and tears, I pride myself on it! Only for somebody to hack in and steal it!?!” (On the low, someone did email me like 4 songs off his album…cringe. Guess I won’t be posting ’em now!)

On a non-relevant note, I eff w/ Neyo, but that twit pic profile pic (above) is absolutely disrespectfully terrible.

Alicia Keys gave some very real advice about the tragic death of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers student who recently committed suicide after his roommate posted a video online of him and another man engaging in sexual activity.

At the annual Keep a Child Alive fundraiser, Keys told MTV News, “That’s really heavy and really, really sad. It’s really important to maintain and keep close to people that really love you. And if you ever feel taken advantage of or bullied, turn it off, and go towards God and people that love you. Make sure that you hold onto them. Anyone else, get them the fuck out of your sphere.”
