R.Kelly in the new issue of Hip-Hop Soul:

“My greatest competition is, well, me . . . I’m the Ali of today. I’m the Marvin Gaye of today. I’m the Bob Marley of today. I’m the Martin Luther King, or all the other greats that have come before us. And a lot of people are starting to realize that now.”

New York Times discussing Akon and suggesting Verizon has a double-standard:

Many music fans know that Pete Wentz, the bassist for the rock band Fall Out Boy, found himself overexposed last year when sexually explicit pictures of him surfaced on the Internet. Many also know that Keith Urban, the country superstar, recently endured a stint in rehab. Akon’s raunchy onstage dancing with a teenager concerned Verizon. Despite the bad publicity, both acts have received a marketing push from Verizon, through promotions as “featured” artists on its mobile network or elsewhere.

Quote of The Day: Akon

Posted by Bossip Staff

Akon in a recent press release:

“First, and most important to me, I want to sincerely apologize for the embarrassment and any pain I’ve caused to the young woman who joined me on-stage, her family and the Trinidad community for the events at my concert in Port of Spain on April 12th. It was never my intention to embarrass or take advantage of my fans in any way, especially those under the age of 18. That is why we tried to make sure that the club did not admit anyone under 18 in the audience. Somehow, that standard was not met.

Again, I apologize to those concerned and to all my fans and I pledge to all that we will strive to make sure this type of incident does not happen again.”

Quote of The Day: Snoop Dog

Snoop responding to Imus-related criticism regarding the women in his videos:

Who’s to say that these women in videos are ho’s? They are classy women, and if you really try to mack to them, they’ll tell you, “Well, I have a man” or “I’m not into that” or “I don’t do that.” Not every girl in the videos has sex with the rappers or lays out her body and does whatever the rapper says. A lot of these women do this as a means of modeling or being appreciated for their looks.

Beyonce in the new issue of Vibe Magazine:

“I think I am intelligent”

“I absolutely do not (go on the internet). I have my Blackberry, but unless I’m approving videos or approving song mixes, I don’t go. I don’t buy anything online. I ‘m scared. I don’t want to just give ‘em my credit card. I don’t wanna be hacked.”

“I don’t mind when people don’tlike something because that’s their opinion. I don’t like everything I hear or everything I see and that doesn’t make me a negative person or a hater.”

“If it’s something about my sister or my nephew or it’s something evil, then yes, I’m upset. I wanna kill somebody.”

Snoop is now banned from entering two countries, the U.K. and Australia. Australian Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews explaining his decision to deny Snoop Dogg entry into the country:

“The reality is in relation to this man, that he was given a warning the last time, he has a whole string of convictions, and, just two weeks ago I was told he was convicted on a number of charges again and sentenced to three years’ imprisonment on two, and three years’ imprisonment on another, with five years’ probation and a suspended sentence,” Mr Andrews told 2GB.

“He has been denied entry into the United Kingdom because he was caught with others causing affray at Heathrow Airport. He doesn’t seem the sort of bloke we want in this country.”

T.I. and Tiny were spotted ‘making it rain’ over the weekend at Body Tap, a strip club in Atlanta. T.I. recently told MTV:

“If you want to fix America, you have to start at George Bush and work your way down – you can’t start at hip-hop and work your way up.“Me, I got children and I’m with my children every day I can be there. They know if they call somebody out there a name, if they disrespect a woman, if they do anything to imitate a 50 Cent or a Snoop Dogg or a T.i. or what they see on Mtv… they gonna have to deal with Daddy. “(Some) parents let their children blame it on hip-hop. I think that’s the beginning of the problem, personally. I think hip-hop is being used as the scapegoat.”

Lionel Richie talking about celebs checking into rehab:

“I think it’s a cliché to say, ‘I’m going into rehab. I bumped my foot today — rehab; I hit my head on something — rehab,”.

Quote of The Day: Snoop Dogg

Posted by Bossip Staff

Snoop talking about the recent Imus drama:

“(Rappers) are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We’re talking about hos that’s in the ‘hood that ain’t doing s**t, that’s trying to get a n**ga for his money. These are two separate things. First of all, we ain’t no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC going hard on black girls. We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them muthaf**kas say we are in the same league as him. Kick him off the air forever.”

Ouch, this Rutgers Captain Essence Carson is competing with Imus and Angela for the Fug of The Day award. She made sure to step to the press conference without 1 nap. Essence spoke at a press conference today:

We’d just like to express our great hurt, the sadness that he has brought to us

Stop trying to act like your feelings were hurt, looking like a broke low rent Dwayne Wade , you have been talked about before. Your team lost, that’s why you’re “hurt”. Everyone is a media-whore nowadays.
