*Is Lamar Odom’s stint with European basketball a done deal?
Just weeks after joining Spanish basketball team Baskonia (a.k.a. Laboral Kutxa), the athlete has returned to the States with a back injury — and at least one source tells Us Weekly he may not go back.
Odom, 34, flew out of Spain on Monday, March 10. A rep for the team says he had the team’s consent to seek additional treatment, saying, “He will visit his doctors in New York who have treated him throughout his career in the States, to check with the medical tests and receive a second opinion about his back injury.”

The Miami Heat player speaks about the importance of health care coverage in a 30-second public service announcement that will air throughout March Madness and during NBA games.
It is similar in style to the ACA television spots featuring former NBA stars Magic Johnson and Alonzo Mourning, each of whom has dealt with a serious health issue—HIV for Johnson and kidney disease for Mourning.
*Jennifer Lopez made sure the video for her new single “I Luh Ya Papi” was full of scantily clad men…to make a point.
The clip begins with J. Lo and two of her girls meeting with a label rep to go over concepts for the video. The rep suggests several ideas — shooting at a zoo, water park, or a carnival — that the ladies immediately laugh off. Eventually, of the friends ponders, “Why do men always objectify the women in every single video? Why can’t we, for once, objectify the men?”
That leads to the giggling ladies riffing on a few scenarios pulled straight out of the typical rap video, but with a little role reversal. This time Lopez and her crew play the dominant figures, surrounded by half naked papis.
*Dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, was found guilty today of the August 2011 murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

The incident allegedly took place at Kartel’s home in Havendale, St Andrew. Williams’ body has never been found.
*Prior to meeting Deion Sanders, love for Tracey Edmonds was something meant for those who enjoy quality time on their own.
Nowadays, she can thank God and Sanders for restoring her faith in the feel-good emotion.
“I always kind of hoped and pray[ed] and I’m always optimistic about love. I did go through those ups and downs after post divorce and you try relationships and certain relationships don’t work and you do sometime reach a point where you’re like, ‘You know what? I’m tired of forcing it, searching. I’m just going to focus on my kids and my work.’ No sooner did I do that then miraculously God puts someone in my life,” she said.
*Some critics might have felt a certain way about it, but the Zach Galifianakis and President Barack Obama mock interview definitely got the point across.
The humorous interview had three million views within a few hours after its release.
But the stunt garnered criticism too. But they were aiming for that.
*Weeks before it was announced that Isaiah Washington would return to Grey’s Anatomy, media partner theJasmineBRAND.com chatted with the 50-year-old actor.

Check out excerpts from the interview below.
*With Lil Boosie‘s return from jail, all kinds of interesting stuff is poppin’ off down in Baton Rouge.
One of the developments is a reality show featuring all four of Boosie’s baby mamas or “Boosie’s Babes” as TMZ refers to them.
It seems Walnita, Tracey, Trivia, and Gerlissa — have been putting together a pilot episode over the last few months while the rapper’s been locked behind bars. Together, they’ve mothered Boosie’s 7 children (aged 4-11). (Scroll down to check out the trailer.)
