Here’s a double dose of MJ news this morning. The late King of Pop’s iconic glitter glove and fedora from his 1980’s “Bad” tour was auctioned off this weekend. The glove went for $330,000 alone, and the fedora for $72,000. Without a doubt, these will make excellent Christmas presents. Below is a sneak peek at his latest single, “Hold My Hand” featuring Akon, from his new album, “Michael,” which hits stores December 14th. [TMZ]
Rihanna is oozing sex appeal in the January issue of GQ magazine. Not only is she on the cover, but there’s a huge spread of her in nothing but a bra and panties. She’s heating up the holiday season with this shoot. Check out the racy photos. [Bossip]
Nicki Minaj just can’t seem to keep Lil’ Kim’s name out of her mouth. In a recent interview with T Magazine, Minaj said, “We all have it hard and face the same challenges as female emcees. Show some mutual love and respect for each other so that it doesn’t get nasty. And she can be a nasty character.” Ouch! She sure knows how to fuel a fire. [EurWeb]
Wyclef says that fans on Twitter call him “the modern-day Fela or Marley or Dylan, you know.” He understands that those men were symbols of their time. He goes on to say, “The vibe you get from Bob Marley or Fela Kuti, that’s the kind of legacy I want to leave.” Is he on his way to being that figure for this generation? [Gawker]

Diddy is coming under fire because two breast cancer charities have not received their money from an event he hosted. The Long Island Plastic Surgical Group Foundation and 1 in 9: The Long Island Breast Cancer Action Coalition both claim they’re owed cash from an agreement with a nightclub promoter. Here’s what Diddy said in response, “I didn’t know what the [club] owner promised — that had nothing to do with me… when the event was booked, it was just for an appearance. I agreed to let him add the charity because I thought it was a good idea.” Should Diddy hand over the $80,000 he received? [YBF]
R. Kelly is back in the news and not in a good way. Clutch Magazine has released a very interesting opinion piece about his appearance on the Soul Train Awards. The writer is asking, “Why, as a society, Black men and women, do we continuously support Black male artists who commit crimes against our women?” That’s a great question. Check out all she had to say. Do you still support R. Kelly? [Clutch Magazine]
