Diddy and Camel Told to Fall Back by Obama

Posted by Bossip Staff

According to Livesteez, the Obama Camp has asked that the entertainers to stay the hell back right now:

Unfortunately, some of Barack Obama’s biggest backers won’t be in attendance tonight for his historical celebratory meeting. The Obama campaign has reportedly asked some of his famous supporters to stay away from his rally Tuesday night in Chicago’s Grant Park, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Although the campaign is reportedly grateful for the high-profile support, several prominent celebs have reportedly been asked “politely but very firmly” to skip the rally and focus on attending the Obama inauguration in January, should that occur, as reported by MTV.com. An Obama insider reportedly told the newspaper’s Bill Zwecker that Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Ben Affleck were among those asked to stay away from tonight’s festivities. “There really only needs to be one star in Grant Park, and that’s Barack,” the insider reportedly said. “There will be plenty of time for a new President Obama to be surrounded by famous fans, all hopeful about a new administration.” However, the paper reported that early Obama supporter Oprah Winfrey is confirmed to make an appearance at the rally in Grant Park. It is also expected that Winfrey will be with Obama as well as his family and inner circle throughout the night at their hotel in Chicago.

YES WE CAN!!

Fall back right now fam. A lot of you bandwagon celebrities only stepped up when it looked like Barack was going to win, when it was “safe and cool”. SMH.

Man and Wife

Posted by Bossip Staff

Jay and Bey were spotted leaving both Diddy’s L’Uomo event and Cipriani restaurant. They haven’t even been married one year yet and they’ve already begun to look like an old married couple. Jay has that older man look around his face and Bey’s even donning a mawmaw frock. Maybe Sasha Fierce should have gone to dinner with Camel to liven things up.

Yeezy’s Listening Party

Posted by Bossip Staff

Kanye’s “808s & Heartbreak” listening party went down Tuesday night in L.A. and Bossip was in the building to witness first-hand the musical mystery that is Mr. West. The album is almost ENTIRELY singing. No cameras were allowed and to make sure some buff jughead fools were roughing up people who did snap shots. During the listening were 40 booty-hole NAKED, bad females just posted up and posing and ish. Jay-Z, Will.i.am, and Officer Ross were in attendance.

Here’s Yeezy’s thank you speech where he talks about his

undying love for autotune, and the color pink.

Although the jugheads were in full effect, we still copped an exclusive pic, take a gander below.

The Recession Hits Camel’s Stacks

Posted by Bossip Staff

You’re not the only that’s going to have to pull back during the credit crunch:

JAY-Z is finding the credit crunch is hampering his London party plans. The hip-hop superstar has found no club willing to stump up his appearance fee.

Representatives for the star, in town to watch his NBA team, the New Jersey Nets, take on Miami Heat at The O2 on Sunday night, initially asked for £25,000 for him to host a party. Even though that figure has now gone down to £7,500, no clubs are interested. A club source told theBuzz: “No club is willing to stump up the cash.

At this rate he might even have to party for free.”

Camel has enough stacks for 5 or 6 deep recessions. He will be alright.

For the Stans

Posted by Bossip Staff

Your humble queen Bey finally speaks on her “secret” marriage and bearing her soul on her new album in the latest issue of Essence:

In an intimate interview with ESSENCE, megastar Beyoncé dishes on her new album, Jay-Z, and life in the spotlight. Costarring in two upcoming films, the psychological thriller “Obsessed” and “Cadillac Records,” where she’ll star as Etta James, the Queen B is preparing to dominate the box office and the music charts. The singer says her new album, coming in November, is her most personal to date. For the first time ever, she opens up to ESSENCE about paparazzi, the wedding, the rumored engagement ring, and what we all missed!

This sounds like it could be interesting but we bet she’ll give the same ol’ non-answer answers that she and Jay are good for.

We would like to issue a cautionary advisory to the Stans: please do not mame, puncture, or assault one another before, during, or after the stampede to the news stands. We will not be held accountable for any of you catching a case behind this. SMH.

Get Your Own Swag

Jim Jones responds to being left off T.I.’s “Swagger Like Us” track ft. Weezy, Jay-Z, and Kanye:

I think it was deliberate. I really do think it was deliberate; maybe in my sick twisted mind I’m a little crazy. People know who set the precedent as far as fashion in this industry and people know who damn near changed the world as far as fashion. You look at people, they went from the urban world of clothing, back when Rocawear and Sean John was cool. And then in the past 5 years I stepped in and gave them a taste of what rock and roll looks like from my side. I guess people would say from an urban side, and it seemed to catch on like wildfire, to the point that people was going to stores and asking for that Jim Jones look. Me and Juelz had Chink do our own beat, I have Weezy’s verse in my inbox right now and we kept the hook of that song because it was a sample. So we’re going to put that as a bonus track on the album, and put it to the streets. “No one on the corner got swag like you we don’t Rocawear that’s for fags like you.”

We think it is safe to say Jim Jones is acting a little broadish right now. Maybe T.I. just forgot about you, Jim, or couldn’t find you at the hair salon getting fresh cornrows. Don’t worry, we promise not to like the song (fingers crossed).

Read the full article to see how Jim Jones really feels about Jay-Z and T.I.’s swag.
