*It may sound strange, but “Love & Hip Hop” creator Mona Scott-Young knows as much about the $50 million copyright infringement lawsuit over the hit VH1 reality show as we do.
The Monami Entertainment founder made the confession during an interview with Sway Calloway, saying “I read about it on the blogs just like everyone else did.
“I haven’t been served anything…” she added. “The only people they’ve served are TMZ and Bossip.”
*50 Cent may enjoy being in a crew of one, but he is aware of what brought him to the table. Namely, his alliance with fellow rappers Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo as part of G-Unit.
As much as fans want to see the trio reform, it just isn’t in the cards for 50, who has apparently moved on to bigger and better things. Yayo made his feelings known as he expressed his views on the lack of unity in G-Unit via Instagram.
“50 ain’t rocking with me and Banks the same; I layed my life down for the unit but you live and you learn.” Yayo stated.

*People are always accusing Kanye West of having an “angry resting face,” but it’s safe to say that Ice Cube wrote the book on looking perpetually pissed off.
“It comes naturally,” reveals the entertainer about a look he’s taken straight to the bank, whether it punctuated his rap hits back in the day or puts someone in check on the big screen, like Kevin Hart’s Ben Barber in “Ride Along.”
The 44-year-old rapper/actor/producer says he had the same mean mug expression as a child.

Apparently he violated a judge’s order by getting booted from the rehab facility where he’s been living for nearly 4 months.
Here’s what TMZ is reporting:
*Tyler Perry‘s latest film, ‘The Single Moms Club‘ is out today!
The movie follows five single mothers, brought together by tragedy, as they create a support group to help them find comedy in the obstacles of life.

*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 Obamacare promo train has just picked up LeBron James in its push to remind folks of the March 31 deadline to enroll.
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.
Also found guilty were Palmer’s associates, Shawn Campbell (a.k.a. Shawn Storm), Kahira Jones and Andre St. John; a fourth associate, Shane Williams, received the sole non-guilty verdict.
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.
Promoting his two projects Blackbird and Blue Caprice, he was quite candid about a number of topics including his relationship with Shonda Rhimes, his biggest regret in Hollywood and of course being axed from Grey’s Anatomy.
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.)
