*Ok, they’re not exactly a-list or even b-list celebs at this point, but Dru Hill’s Sisqo and Kyle from Jagged Edge squared off backstage over the weekend at an Old School show at the Concord Pavilion in Northern Cali.
Well, from what we can see, it wasn’t much of a fight. More like grabbing, pulling and shoving. Hell, we’ve seen better catfights.
In any event, check it out:
It’s not clear what the problem was, but some say it was just a continuation of bad blood between the two that goes back several years. In fact, Kyle discussed it when Jagged Edge visited “The Breakfast Club” back in June to promote their new album. Yes, Jagged Edge has new music out.

Oh yeah, who do you think won this classic “battle of the century?”
*It may be a little too late for Michael Brown, but hopefully going forward it’ll help to save lives in Ferguson.
Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.
The policy has the support of scores of law enforcement agencies and the American Civil Liberties Union. Opponents say the cameras could be an invasion of privacy and deter people from approaching police with a tip.

*Ashley Jackson, the fifteen year old Love-child of Reverend Jesse Jackson and Dr. Karin Stanford, has posted a sneak-peek of her music on her Facebook page under the name “AJae.”
Miss Jackson is said to be more than just a triple threat. She considers herself one who can do it all: she sings, raps, writes music, acts, and dances.
AJae’s sound is a mix of pop, R&B, and hip hop. Through her music, she wants to promote positive messages, like what you will hear in her song “Just Do Me.”
It looks like AJae has set her sights on greatness and hopes to point her generation in that direction as well.
Ashley’s mother, Dr. Karin Stanford, who had a four-year affair with Rev. Jackson, calls their daughter her “miracle baby.” She told ABC News that she had no regrets over her relationship with the civil rights leader.
“I’m convinced she is supposed to be here, and I am supposed to be her mom,” Dr. Stanford says of her daughter, Ashley. “And I’m very proud of that.”

*With all the (un)healthy heapings of trouble on his plate, President Obama cleared said plate, so to speak, for the White House’s head chef’s wedding Saturday night.
The President and First Lady Michelle Obama (and daughters) were guests at the nuptials of Sam Kass, their devoted family chef, and MSNBC host Alex Wagner.
The well-connected couple tied the knot at a trendy farm-to-table restaurant in Westchester County called Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills.
Obama and Kass have a close relationship, which Obama highlighted earlier this month by spending hours at dinner at Kass’ apartment amid the turmoil in Iraq, Ukraine and Ferguson, Missouri.
It’s long been said that time is a president’s most precious commodity. That Obama would spend five hours at Kass’ home on one of the aide’s final evenings as a bachelor was a testament to their bond.
Obama’s rounds of golf are often his only other outings that last as long – and those games sometimes include Kass.
