Here’s what we’re talking about:
- Brandy continues to make it rain on “Dancing with the Stars.” She scored a whopping 36 points last night, making her the night’s highest scorer. Go Brandy! All bets are on Brandy walking away the winner this season! [Radar Online]
- Nicki Minaj and Will.i.Am have released their video for “Check It Out.” We’ll admit it’s a catchy song and the video’s Harajuku theme is way cute, but it just doesn’t get the blood pumping. It’s worth a gander though… “Check it out.” [YBF]
- “For Colored Girls” star Omari Hardwick has some interesting words about his character’s double life in the movie… plus he’s dishing on how it was to work with Janet Jackson. We don’t want to give the plot away, but it’s a shocker, ladies. [Black Voices]
- Is T.I. getting off easy? Well, just a tad. He still has to go to jail, but won’t be prosecuted on felony drug charges from his September arrest in Los Angeles because the amount of drugs found wasn’t significant enough to press charges. [EURweb]
- Jamie Foxx is switching gears these days and making magic happen behind the camera. The actor/ comedian/ singer/ talk show host — we can’t keep up — recently sold a show to NBC called “Tommy’s Little Girl.” He co-wrote and directed the series which is said to be a “Sopranos” meets “Le Femme Nikita” mix…[Vibe]
- Word on the street has it that NeNe is already causing problems on the set of “Celebrity Apprentice.” Perez Hilton is reporting that she clashes with Star Jones and La Toya Jackson, but she may be changing her ways. NeNe enlisted Omarosa Stallworth as her new life coach. Two strong-headed women in that close proximity? Good luck, Omarosa. [Perez Hilton]
- Rihanna had a legitimate reason for not showing up at BFF Katy Perry’s wedding: she was in the studio putting the finishing touches on her album. We just knew there had to be a good reason, didn’t you? (*side-eye*). Would you miss your best friend’s wedding to work? [Pop Eater]
