A recently single and broke Toni Braxton has lost the copyright to 27 of her favorite songs after being outbid during an auction of her back catalogue.

After filing for bankruptcy not once but twice, the 45-year old R& B singer struck a deal with the bankruptcy court to settle her bankruptcy case for approximately $150,000, spending $50,000 to reacquire personal belongings. She was also hoping to buy the rights to over two dozen of her songs through the deal.

DJ Khaled and Nicki Minaj
The rapper's marriage proposal to fellow label mate, Nicki Minaj was just a publicity stunt to promote his new single,  "I Wanna Be With You" which also features Nicki.

Minaj who exposed this on Monday while talking to Hot 97′s Funkmaster Flex says the stunt was a promotional gag to draw attention to his upcoming album;
"I was shocked just like the rest of the world and I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world 'cause Khaled is a master at what he does. 
Nobody in my real life took it seriously. Everybody just hit me like, 'LOL. Yo, Khaled is crazy. Khaled is my brother and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, ya'll, please let it go.  
He was kidding. He's not attracted to me, he doesn't like me. We're brother and sister. It was just another way for him to kinda give the world a glimpse on the feeling of this record".

Comedian, Basketmouth as released the part 2 (In case you missed the part 1 read it HERE) from his short stories about his experience with people while growing in the Nigerian entertainment industry and this time its about rapper, Six Foot Plus. Read the story below....
Fame pre-award concert in the year 2000 had Dele Olukoju and Wale Oluwaleimu as stage/project managers. I had met Wale before then and he had suggested I come perform in the bid to expanding my brand name.  
I went there with a friend of mine, we had spent the last kobo on us transporting ourselves and getting food to eat as the event didn't start early enough. My performance was done @ about midnight. 
As it was time for me to leave, I met with the show organizers hoping I'd be paid for my service. Unfortunately, communication had gone wrong somehow as they thought I was doing the performance for free. 
It dawned on me immediately that I was in trouble. My friend and I then decided to just hang around as the concert was still on and hopefully we might get a free ride.

Part 1: "Before I Write A Book" - By Basketmouth

Comedian Basketmouth is planning on writing a book but before that he has decided to share short stories about his experience with people while growing in the Nigerian entertainment industry thus the title "Before I Write A Book". Below is the first story he shares...
Back stage at the Rothmans Groove tour which held @ TBS in 1998, there I was seated with the likes of The Plantashun Boiz,Dr. Fresh,Remedies and more...I was just a young boy trying to weigh his options on what direction to go with his career as drumming,rapping,producing and comedy were few of my options.  
That night was the 1st time I met Tony Tetuila, one of those humble guys you come by,he was warm and accommodating considering the obvious fact that I was nobody in the industry.  
Fast forward a few months later, Comedy had won me over and in the course of my hustle and journey to where I'm yet to get to, I bumped into Tetuila  in Festac, just about the time his single 'you don hit my car' came out.

Actress Kerry Washington Flaunts Hot Body In One-Piece Swimsuit For Vanity Fair Magazine

Taking centre stage: Kerry Washington looks stunning in a cutaway swimsuit as she takes the cover of the August edition of U.S. Vanity Fair magazine
The Scandal Actress looks stunning as usual as she covers the August edition of U.S. Vanity Fair magazine. She also talked a bit about her role on Scandal and how white women really want her role, see excerpt below;
'One of the most profound things for me about the show is the number of white women of all ages who come up to me and say: "I want to be Olivia Pope". It's especially profound in a place like South Africa. It's called The Fixer over there and it's just started its second season. 
The fact that white women can see this woman of colour as an aspirational character is revolutionary, I think, in the medium of television. I don't think white women would feel that  way about Olivia if her identify as a woman, period, wasn't first in their minds.'

Do You Think Gabrielle Union Would Have Played The Role Of Olivia Pope In Scandal Better Than Kerry Washington?

Wondering why I'm asking? Well I just found out actress, Gabrielle Union was close to landing the role of Olivia Pope in the hit series, Scandal” but lost it to Kerry Washington who by the way in my opinion is nailing that character big time.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Union revealed that she lost the lead role on ABC's Scandal to Kerry Washington but got her own show “Being Mary Jane” which according to her is better than Scandal;
"I said to myself, Oh my God, these roles are out there. It showed me that you don't have to settle. Luckily, the success of her and the show bred more work. Just from the audition process, I knew that I couldn't go backward. 
I didn't get Scandal, but I got something better which is my own show, it's all about building a legacy. This new opportunity is something I feel that can grow."
Eerrm, I don't know if anyone can play that role better than Washington and well till I see that her new series, Scandal is still on the top for me. What do you think?

Wizkid Justifies Replacing His N15million Porsche Panamera Car After Accident

The pop star has been heavily criticized after replacing his N15million Porsche Panamera car with a brand new one less than few weeks after crashing it in an accident. During an interview with Encomium magazine, he talks about the reason why he purchased the new car. Read the excerpt below,
"I needed to get another one because after the accident, I didn't have a car and I have to move around. I started taking cabs before I decided to buy this new car to move around. It is needed for work. And I don't think there's anything wrong in splashing millions on a car. If someone works hard and decides to spend on something that he thinks is good for him, why not? In fact, I don't think there's need to justify whether its is wrong or not. I work hard and I will enjoy my money"
