Check out why we're having nutmeg spiced flavored coffee this morning:

  • Eddie Murphy will be honored with the Comedy Icon Award at the first annual Comedy Awards. With a career spanning nearly 30 years he most certainly deserves it — he's done stand up, TV, movies and more. He was even a cast member of "Saturday Night Live," and many of today's comedians owe him for opening doors. [BV]

  • Spice Girl Mel B is preggers with her third baby! Congrats to Mel and Stephen Belafonte on their first child together. "We're really excited. We wouldn't have planned and waited for four years to have a baby if we weren't really excited about it and ready for it," she says. "Even though you can never really be truly ready." [Eurweb]

  • Cedric the Entertainer is the latest star to get on the game show bandwagon. He's set to host NBC's "It's Worth What?" It's said to be a cross between "Pawn Stars" and "The Price is Right." [Eurweb]

  • According to the NY Post, Rihanna's manager is advising her to cancel concert dates in America due to poor ticket sales. Riri ran into this problem last year with her "Last Girl on Earth" tour. Why won't people buy those tickets?! [NY Post]

  • Soulja Boy is suffering a loss this morning. His brother was reportedly killed in a car crash. "At home crying my eyes out I can't believe my lil bro is gone... today is not my day... RIP lil brother love you always," he tweeted. [Perez Hilton]

  • Janet Jackson will reveal in an upcoming ABC news special that she too holds Dr. Conrad Murrary responsible for her brother's death. "He was the one that was administering. I think he is responsible," she told Robin Roberts. [Vibe]

  • Loleatta Holloway has died. The Disco queen was 64 and suffered a brief illness. She's responsible for mega hits like "Love Sensation," "Hit & Run," and more. [Urban Daily]
