Snoop Dogg does not believe Kim Kardashian is the marrying type.
That’s the PC, G-rated version of the following video, condensed into a single, far less funny sentence than what this rapper randomly goes off about in a new message for Kris Humphries.
“The first advice is, you dumb ass n-gga, you shouldn’t have tried to wife the b-tch,” Snoop says below. “She gets around, man. Did you see when Reggie took the b-tch to Africa? She was looking at the Africans cause they had bigger d-cks than his… She’s cold-blooded..”
Man, Dogg. Kris could have used these words of wisdom months ago. WatchMore >
Jason Aldean dominated the field with six wins, including Artist of the Year, at the 2011 American Country Awards, where the fans vote and determine the winners.

Katt Williams wants to make one thing clear: he is not sorry.
The comedian got into it with a fan at a gig in Phoenix last week, telling the man “this ain’t Mexico. It used to be Mexico [expletive] and now it’s Phoenix… Do you remember when white people used to say ‘Go back to Africa,’ and we’d have to tell them we don’t want to? So if you love Mexico, [expletive], get the [expletive] over there!”
It appeared as if Williams was contrite for this outburst soon after it was made public, but he tells CNN an apology was penned by his publicist and was simply “for the Tracy Morgans of theMore >

[HMG Celebrity News] – The crushing poverty and lack of opportunity inflicted on children in Africa is beyond belief. Madonna has done charity work there, but one of her projects ‘Raising Malawi’ has run into serious trouble.
Their goal was to build a school for 400 girls in Malawi, a tiny, land-locked nation in the southeastern corner of Africa. But the whole thing has collapsed after allegations of fraud among the foundation’s bosses.
Tracy Anderson – the boyfriend of Madonna’s former trainer – was the Executive Director, and auditors brought in to clear up the mess say he approvedMore >
While his BFF continues to express disappointment in Barack Obama, Ben Affleck also stepped into the political arena this week, testifying before the House Africa, Global Health & Human Rights Subcommittee.
The actor, who founded the Eastern Congo Initiative, stated his case regarding the central African country, which is mired in violence, and why America must do more.
“If we continue to place Congo on the back burner of U.S. policy, it will come back to haunt us,” Affleck said. “The last time Congo collapsed, armies came in from across Africa and five million people died… We must learnMore >
With dangerous protests taking place in Libya, Angelina Jolie released a statement today that takes up the cause of refugees fleeing the troubled country, along with those in Africa’s Cote d’Ivoire.
Said this UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador:
“We don’t want to look back and find their deaths on our hands.

Who would have guessed when Jermaine Jackson took a trip to Burkina Faso in Africa that he would end up stuck there because of his failure to pay child support.
His passport expired and he can’t get a new one until he does.
How does that work? In 2008, Jermaine’s baby mama Alejandra Jackson (mom of Jafaar and Jermajesty), had a judge issue a support order for $3,000/month.
Jermaine has racked up $91,921 in back child support since.
Under California law, if someone owes more than $2,500 a month, the state informs the U.S. government, which often will red flag that person’s passport.
The latest issue of In Touch Weekly takes readers inside the pending divorce between Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett.
But allow THG to save you the cover price of this tabloid and do the reporting for you: there is no pending divorce between Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett. That’s pretty much it.
With no new sex tape on the market, and having already pretended to have had a miscarriage, Kendra has turned to fake relationship drama in order to remain relevant.
Just to be clear: Wilkinson has not called it quits. She has not met with a divorce lawyer. And there’s no battle for her baby.More >
[HMG Celebrity News] – As you know, some of this planet’s less momentous celebs like Alicia Keys, Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest and Lady Gaga recently agreed to go silent on Twitter to support the ‘Keep a Child Alive’ campaign.
Well, bad news – they’re back.
The disposable deities agreed to ‘kill’ themselves on all social media until the campaign raised $1-million to help fund HIV and AIDS research in Africa and the Indian continent. But when the campaign only raised half that much in six days these self-centered starlets got tired of buffing their halos and became rather upset.

Stewart Rahr did something very nice for anyone affected by AIDS today. And something not as nice for anyone who was enjoying a world without self-serving Web chatter.
The billionaire saved the lives of a handful of “dead” celebrities, as Alicia Keys, Kim Kardashian and others agreed on December 1 to silence themselves on all social networks until $1 million was donated the Keep a Child Alive organization.
There was just one problem: nearly a week into this campaign, barely half that amount had been raised.
But Rahr stepped up this morning and gave $500,000 to the charity that focuses itsMore >

Ben, 37, was among the contenders at the ‘Ante Up for Africa’ tournament which opened at Rio Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas on Monday. But he was forced to withdraw after being struck down by one of the disabling headaches caused by this ailment.
