Word on the street is the newest inductee into the Ratchet Hall of Fame, Miley Cyrus, may make a guest appearance on Kanye West’s remix of “Black Skinhead.” Page Six is reporting the twerker-lite bailed on going to her own MTV VMA afterparty so that she could rendezvous with Mr. West in the studio. The remix is due later this year.
Beyonce gets some help from her Houston peeps in the remix to “I Been On.” Bun B, Z-Ro, Scarface, Willie D, Slim Thug and Lil Keke give the track some street cred but there’s word she may need more people. News on that after you press play.
Word on le curb is that former Brownstone songstress Nicci Gilbert will have plenty o’time to work on her Fat Avocado Curvato clothing line because she’s been axed from the cast of R&B Divas. The YBF got an exclusive tip that Gilbert (a co-creator of the show, by the way) got the boot because research of viewers showed that she just didn’t connect. 95% of viewers polled said Nicci was their least fave diva. There’s evidence of this if you go to the show’s website, where Gilbert’s profile has the most comments of any diva, many of them calling her judgmental and rude with a poor attitude and issues! No word yet from TV One or the producers about the firing but Gilbert all but confirmed it in her tweets. Taste The Brew for more
Queen Mother Creole Warbler Beyonce Knowles has reportedly signed on to be the halftime talent at the Super Bowl. A “source” tells the Associated Press that Mrs. Carter will hit the stage in New Orleans on February 3, 2013. The official amazing announcement is expected tomorrow.
Kim Kardashian is reportedly “honored” to be Kanye Kardashian’s West’s perfect bitch. (Were you expecting anything else?) Ye tweeted Monday that his new song, “Perfect Bitch,” off the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music album, “Cruel Summer,” IS indeed about his boothang. The album doesn’t come out until September but Ye played the song in a New York club last week and it was reportedly well-received. Well, we now know (okay, TMZ knows but they know errythang) that Kim is receiving the song quite well too, telling friends “I love it. I know he doesn’t mean it in a negative way when he says the word ‘bitch.’” Kim says the song refers to how Kanye has been with other women but never found the “right one until he met me.” There are reportedly some references to Amber Rose in the track too.
Seems to me that if you have to explain the tone and context of what’s supposed to be a term of endearment, then you might want to re-think it. “Plastic soulmate,” “Ray J’s love muffin” or “questionably talented Armenian snookums” would have worked too, right?
Here’s more on Kanye’s new song and the album:
By the way, Kanye’s tweet has since been deleted. But you know we got it.
