Are congratulations in order for Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa?
The short-haired model, who has been linked to Kanye West, Reggie Bush and Amar’e Stoudemire, will reportedly marry the rapper this summer.
“Wiz is going on tour for the next month. But he told her when he gets back, he’s going to marry her,” a source close to the couple says. “And he was serious – he asked her to start making plans.”
No confirmation from either half yet, but Rose has met Khalifa’s mother. And the artist has been open about his feelings for Amber, recently stating:
“She’s a great girl, she’s like one of the bestMore >
We suppose you can give 50 Cent credit for trying to lighten the mood, but it was still a little soon for Japanese earthquake/Tsunami humor, most likely.
While countless celebrities Tweeted their thoughts and prayers to the victims, the rapper attempted some online stand-up comedy, with mixed results.
Some of 50′s ill-advised Twitter tsunami one-liners …
- “Its all good Till b*tches see there christian louboutins floating down da street shit gone get crazy.”
- “Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoe’s from LA,Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol”
- “Wave will hit 8am
Hyped as Super Bowl commercials may be, most are gimmicky and quite forgettable. Chrysler’s effort featuring the Motor City’s own Eminem was anything but.
Two minutes of gritty footage set to the rapper’s “Lose Yourself” served as both an homage to Detroit’s past and a look to the future in introducing the Chrysler 200.
Moving doesn’t usually describe ads during football, but it sure applies here as the iconic American brand – and city – defiantly picks itself up off the mat.
With an assist from Eminem and a gospel choir, this is a bad ass commercial …
This young blood here came up hustlin.Livin corrupted, lickin shots and f-ckin.You live to love it, once you’re Armor All-in. – Ja Rule, “Survival of the Illest”
This rapper will need to call upon all the surviving skills about which he’s rapped over the years, as MTV confirms that Ja Rule has pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He’ll likely serve two years in jail for the crime.
The artist was arrested in New York City on the same July 2007 evening as Lil Wayne. Cops allegedly found a loaded semiautomatic gun in his car.

Chelsea Handler hearts 50 Cent like she hates Angelina Jolie. If she and the rapper aren’t dating, which she insists, then they’re definitely close friends.
Like roll-around-in-bed-cuddling kind of close friends. It’s great.
Here’s the comedienne sucking on his face, taking a picture, and posting it on Twitter. That’s not the way to quelch rumors you’re dating 50 Cent …
Handler put the intimate Twitpic with Fiddy up earlier today with this cryptic tease: “I don’t know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper.”

T.I. and his wife were arrested on September 1 for the “possession of a controlled substance” and now we’ve learned that T.I. will not be charged in that arrest.
According to TMZ the D.A.’s Office:
[is] not going forward with charges because, in essence, he’s already been sentenced to prison since the arrest was a violation of his federal probation.
Law enforcement says there were simply too many probable cause issues during the arrest. For example, police officers on the scene claimed to have smelled pot in the vehicle, but no marijuana was booked into evidence. Also T.I. was removedMore >
Beyonce Knowles is pregnant with her first child.
According to Us Weekly, at least, and while we’ve heard this before – and it’s been wrong before – the magazine seems sure about it … whatever that’s worth.
No one was more stunned than Beyonce herself, apparently: “B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” says a source.
Congratulations, we think, to Jay-Z and Beyonce!
“She really wanted to get her album done and tour again,” adds the source, but she realizes, of course, that “this is a gift from God and she’s so happy.”

Whether he’s producing hit music, hijacking Taylor Swift speeches or ranting about his banned album cover, Kanye West always tells you how he feels.
Even when he isn’t feeling so great about himself.
While premiering his new film Runaway at a press event last night, the rapper revealed that he had, at one point, contemplated taking his own life.
“There were times that I contemplated suicide,” a reflective West told the crowd, adding that he is now certain, “I will not give up on life again.”
On what drives Kanye to carry on, West said: “There’s so many people that will never get theMore >
T.I. helped talk a jumper down from an Atlanta skyscraper this week, but he could not talk a federal judge into giving him another chance to stay out of prison.
Declaring T.I. “has had about the limit of second chances,” U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. sentenced him to 11 months in prison for violating probation.
He will begin serving his time at a later date.
T.I. and Tiny after his (short-lived) release earlier this year.
“I screwed up,” said T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., pleading for leniency. “I screwed up big time, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry.More >
Rapper and alleged airport gun smuggler Petey Pablo has turned himself in.
A federal judge issued a warrant for Petey for that whole “bringing a gun to an airport on 9/11″ thing. Crazy why they make rules against that, right?
Sources close to the rapper say that he immediately made plans to cooperate with authorities upon learning about his situation and the warrant involved.
Pablo was in custody for only a few hours yesterday, before being released on his own recognizance. He must now report to a U.S. probation officer.
He must report his travel plans well ahead of time, and he hasMore >
