A pregnant Alicia Keys fell during her performance at the Essence Music Festival Saturday evening. From the video footage, it doesn’t seem like it was a serious tumble. She was doing like a back-up and sing towards the piano number and fell on her bum (yes, I said bum). Here’s the video, compliments of World Star Hip Hop.

Did you hear the girl in the background say, “Did she mean to do that?” ;-)

During the 2010 BET Awards, Vivica Fox expressed that she was not too fond of Monica’s wardrobe. Don’t quote me on exactly what Vivica said word-for-word, but we can guess she was referring to those wings/shoulder pads. Monica took to twitter and made a subtle slick comment to Fox, referring to her as an ‘old lady.’ She tweeted, “Thank u guys for having my back but I’m not offended at all by that older ladies comment. U must be fashionable to judge fashion. LMAO…”

A few days ago, Monica tweeted that she had contacted Vivica to clear the air and all is well now. She tweeted, “Hi guys…on yesterday I had a negative outburst towards Vivica fox after she commented on my outfit. I am human and find myself still Affected when I’m being judged. However there is NO wrong u can’t make right, so like a woman I called Vivica and found we have mutual Respect for one another. And in true lady form she told me that she has nothing but love for me and was there to entertain and do a job. And that I can respect. everyday, I learn & I grow. This was just another great lesson. Much love to Vivica. Real recognizes real. :)”

Did Rick Ross Skip DC? Ross Tweets Why.

Scroll to the bottom for the update…Word around town is that Ricky Ross, also known as Rick Rozay or “Biggie of the South” if you ask Diddy, skipped the party at DC’s Ibiza Night Club (Saturday night), and instead partied it up in Atlantic City. Everyone, including a DC radio station promoted heavily that Ross would be in the building; some folks bought tickets and spent a pretty penny on table service. Problem is, Ross never showed. We hear, some folks at the club were a little pissy after dropping $$ to see him. A few altercations erupted due to frustration. I’m not sure if an announcement was made or not, but party-goers were understandably upset. Attendees threw some entertaining tweets about it:

 @keepitrealphyll @rickyrozay what happened to u last night at IBIZA …. #noshow = #nobueno

@MsStilettoStona finally up.ibiza was crazy last nite until the riot broke out!!uggh @rickyrozay didn’t show up!!

@MeCherryB Good thing I didn’t make a trip to 18+ Club Ibiza…my boo @rickyrozay didn’t even go! He was w/my uncle @iamdiddy n Atlantic City!

In his defense, we ‘hear’ Ross did make it to a pool party out Maryland. Ross tweeted that he pulled up to Ibiza, but he did not arrive because of management.

He tweeted, “Rescheduling club ibiza asap..club mgmnt decision…I fucks wit dmv 4life!!!this traffic crazy!!the luv feltabout 13 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

He didn’t really expand beyond that. We hear that Ross was partying it up in Atlantic City w/ Diddy and Dirty Money later that evening. Not sure how Ross coulda made it up to AC that quick, but he’s a jet-setter now, right?

In other news, Layla was a hood fest. Steve Francis, along w/ some d-boys and a camera crew were in the building. Not saying I didn’t love it, just sayin….nevermind.

His new album, Teflon Don drops July 20.

Update…Rick Ross stopped by the Russ Parr Morning show moments ago to promote his upcoming album. The “why did you skip Ibiza” subject came up and he basically said that it was ‘money issues.’ So, no it wasn’t ‘traffic’ as some say he tweeted; it looks like he didn’t get paid either in advance or someone effed up the agreement. Death to promoters ;-) I’ll find the audio shortly.

Knicks vs Nets, the Battle of Ads

The Knicks don’t seem to find this New Jersey Nets ad too amusing. The Nets’ owner (Prokhorov) purchased space to hang the ad near Madison Square Garden, on 34th Street & 8th Avenue in Manhattan. There’s also a mural of Lebron James @ Rucker’s Park, commissioned by folks that want James with the Knicks.
