Kelly Rowland’s Talk A Good Game hit stores yesterday and she stopped by "GMA" to promote the album and perform "Street Life" with Pusha T. Watch the interview and performance inside…

 

Kelly Rowland stopped by "GMA" this morning where she chatted with Lara Spencer and dished on the release of Talk a Good Game, which hit shelves and digital outlets this week.

Ms. Kelly also gave a sneak peek at her “Dirty Laundry” video which gives us a look into an abusive relationship from Kelly’s past and her bittersweet admiration for her D-Child sis Beyonce.  Kelly revealed that she cried during the filming of the video, but added that the entire experience of opening up to her fans had been very rewarding.

Later, she hit the stage to perform "Street Life" with Pusha T.  And chick’s performance slayed.

Watch the interview here:

She also started going in on a hot medley of Destiny’s Child hits before they cut her off for commercial.  Ugh.

BONUS: Kelly chatted up InTouch Weekly recently where she explained that there’s NO jealousy involved when it comes to how she feels about Bey, and people misconstrued her words on "Dirty Laundry."

“I’m not saying I’m jealous of her by any means!  It’s so sad that people always go straight to that place [of jealousy]. It’s ridiculous. It’s basically about me going through some struggles in my life while she was doing her thing.”

Agreed Kel.  

 

BONUS 2: Kelly also hit up "106 & Park" last night to chat up Bow Wow & Angela Simmons (the other three co-hosts STILL haven’t returned…but that’s another story).  She explained why she named her album Talk A Good Game:

"Talk A Good Game" is one of my favorite songs off the album and that’s honestly why I named it that. Everything I’m saying on the album is true, so it’s real."

Here’s the cutie’s full interview below:

President Barack Obama CHATS IT UP On “The View” About Gay Marriage, Wall Street And Pop Culture

President Obama stopped by "The View" today to discuss a range of topics from Wall Street reform and gay marriage to fun stuff like singing at the Apollo. Watch clips inside…..

 

Earlier today, President Obama stopped by "The View" where he was initially expected to make his first public announcement about same-sex marriage (but that was later trumped by a "GMA" interview with Robin Roberts).  After a little good natured ribbing about the scoop, he talked to the ladies about a wide range of subjects.

When asked if he ever got angry with Vice President Biden for being so outspoken, he said that he appreciated honesty and persons who spoke their mind.

When speaking about gay marriage, he trumped up the importance of the word "marriage" saying civil unions made gay couples feel "different."  He added that he knows this is a hot button issue but didn’t think it would be a deciding factor in the election.  He thinks the economy will be the biggest issue.

During one funny moment, Sherri asked him if he thinks the election will be "tight" and the President joked, "When your name is Barack Hussein Obama it will always be tight!"  The crowd loved it.  

When talking about Chase bank, he said that even smart people make mistakes.

And when Elizabeth asked how he would grade his administration, he said he’d give them an incomplete.

We also learned fun facts like "sports" are his guilty pleasure, he coaches Sasha’s basketball team, he loves guacamole and chips, and the First Lady Michelle is a little bit "jealous" that other folks get to hear his singing voice.

Nicki Minaj Does Promo In Harlem + DISHES To The Breakfast Club About her Relationship With SB, That FAT Ring, & Being Street Vs. Pop

SAD AMBER! Amber Rose Breaks Down Crying, Says Kanye Fans Throw Things At Her On The Street

Amber Rose is sad y’all.  While taping an appearance for MTV’s RapFix, she broke down crying because of all the haters she encounters.  Check out the video inside…

While out pubbing her new single "Fame," Amber stopped by MTV’s RapFix to remind us about her love for Wiz Khalifa, and tell the world how Kanye and his fans treat her.

"Wiz knows that I’ve never loved a man the way I love him. He knows that, he’s very secure with that.  He knows that know matter what I would never go back to that. and he also knows that I haven’t talked in so long–so nobody really knows my side of the story. No-one knows what I’ve been through. The things that I’ve had to deal with when Kanye made his album. And he talked reckless about me on his album. And them I have people throwing things at me in the street because they’re fans of Kanye’s."

And after host Sway tried to change the subject, she cried:

"I’m just crying because I don’t deserve to bullied like that.  I’m a nice girl, I don’t bother anybody. And I keep my mouth shut because I don’t want any trouble. But to be bullied through music and through stuff like that it’s not fair to me. I don’t deserve that."

Amber is a sweet girl.  And getting negativity even when you’re nice isn’t a foreign concept in celebrityville.  There’s a difference between being a celebrity and being a musician. So if Amber has always wanted to make music like she says, but supposedly hates the negativity and attention from the public, maybe making the music without going on voluntary promo rounds or accepting "celebrity" appearances is a better idea.  Just a thought…

50 Cent Gives Santa Claus a Boost in Street King Commercial

It’s the most busiest time of the year for Santa Claus and he’s hard at work making sure all the kids will get their presents on time. But even old St. Nick can get a sluggish during the day.

Enter 50 Cent. In his new animated commercial for his energy drink Street King, the rapper finds an exhausted Santa taking a rest on a city bench. Sensing that he needs a little boost, Fiddy gives him a bottle of Street King to get him in the holiday spirit.

“Don’t be thinkin’ you be takin’ a break tonight,” says 50. After Santa takes a swig of SK, he jumps on his sleigh and fly off into the night like a bat out of hell. We are quite certain that Santa will finished the job of putting gifts under the Christmas tree. Thanks 50!

The SK Christmas commercial is endearing and the animation is really good. The ad follows the hilarious ‘Hangover’-parodied commercial featuring Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather. Remember, a portion of the proceeds from Street King will go to famine-relief efforts. 50 Cent is still on his mission to provide a billion meals to impoverished children in Africa over the next five years.

So for the holiday season, give back by supporting Street King.

50 Cent and Mike Tyson Recreate ‘Hangover’ Flick in Street King Ad

YouTube

Rapper 50 Cent has teamed up with boxing legends Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather to shoot a promo ad for his energy drink Street King. The video parodies the hit movie ‘The Hangover,’ which also co-starred Tyson.

In the hilarious clip, Fiddy and Mayweather wake up from a night of debauchery to find that their Las Vegas suite has been trashed. As they tried to figure out what happened, Tyson steps out of the bathroom energized and ready to go.

Apparently, the night before, the trio drank too much of 50?s Street King drink and they end up partying all night with a group of hot models from the club. Tyson must still be high off the SK because he’s the only one still revved up like he’s ready to go 12 rounds in the boxing ring.

This is only Part 1 of the story, so we can expect more mayhem as this installment continues. Tyson also gives a great comedic performance as well and we are quite sure there will be plenty of funny moments with him in the series.

All jokes aside, 50 Cent’s Street King energy drink is part of the rapper’s ongoing famine-relief campaign to provide a billion meals to impoverished children in Africa over the next five years.

SAY IT LOUD: Russell Simmons & Kanye West Join “Occupy Wall Street” Demonstrators

As their movement gains nationwide attention, the Wall Street protestors have also caught the attention of several celebs who have popped up downtown in the Financial District to lend their support AND and get some face time with the throngs of media.  See pics of Kanye West and Russell Simmons occupy Wall Street inside…..

The Wall Street protestors have gained the attention of the White House and……

The attention of Hip-Hop heavyweights Russell Simmons and Kanye West.  Russ has been in and out of the protest meditating with the folks who are standing strong for their cause.  And he brought Kanye along today:

Russell tweeted: 

I just walked @kanyewest thru the #occupywallstreet. I love how sweet and tolerant he was to the crowd

And Uncle Rush let the world know that he supported the protests later tweeting, 

The ny post has crossed the line framing the protesters as criminals. They are peace loving activists whose education level is far beyond average tea party people

Before they left, Russell and Kanye spoke about the protests with Rev. Al Sharpton on his radio program.  And Russell told the listeners, "I’m happy to pay a little more taxes if it means better education for our children.  I don’t pay enough taxes and I know it."

Good to know….

And in case you’ve been wondering exactly what the Occupy Wall Street (and beyond) folks are protesting about, here’s a summary:

The participants of the event are mainly protesting against social and economic inequality, corporate greed, and the influence of corporate money and lobbyists on government, among other concerns.

Liberal commentator Michael Moore had suggested this protest represents a variety of demands with a common statement about government corruption and the excessive influence of big business and the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans on U.S. laws and policies.

Jessica White’s Mysterious Fiance REVEALED — Wall Street Banker Bruce DeWitt

Folks were shocked when supermodel Jessica White showed up sporting a large Mauboussin ring at Beyonce’s Pulse perfume launch a few days ago.  We confirmed then with Jessica’s rep that she is indeed enagaged.  And now the identity of the man who laced Jessica with the huge ring has been revealed. Find out about Jessica’s fiance’ inside….

According to the NY Post, supermodel Jessica White is engaged to British-born Wall Street banker Bruce DeWitt.

A source close to the couple recently said,

“They’ve known each other for a while, but have kept things very low-key. They got engaged last week and want to get married as soon as possible. Jessica is really happy.”

The source continued,

“Her past relationships have suffered from being so public, so she wanted to protect this one.”

Jess was seen wedding-dress shopping yesterday at Vera Wang. And the couple hosted an engagement party last night at Co-Op in NYC for their close friends. I see she’s not wasting any time.  Her fiance’s identity is still laced in secrecy…for now.

Congrats to Jessica!

It looks like 50 Cent is on the road to feeding a billion people in five years. The altruistic rapper announced that he has fed over 2.5 million people off the initial sales of his new 6-hour energy drink Street King.

With the launch of Street King, Fiddy hopes to achieve his goal of providing meals for hungry kids and, ultimately, end world hunger. “Every time they purchase SK [energy drink], a child is being fed,” he said on his own radio program G-Unit Radio. “I went to Africa. When you see it up close, it’s a whole different thing from when you see it in commercials. You’ll be affected by it.”

The New York native hopes his venture will spark new business models for other artists to pursue entrepreneurial ventures that relates to helping the world. “If just one percent of business was given to charitable organizations, we would alleviate all of extreme poverty around the world,” he says. So far, pop stars like Usher, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Drake and have expressed interest in 50?s campaign. “So we’re looking forward to building bigger and better things,” he says.

50 also stresses that his hunger relief campaign is a reflection of his growth as an artist and entrepreneur. “You can see I’m growing in different areas. I’ve been exposed to different things,” he says. “I’ve traveled. I’ve been able to interact with people of different ethnic backgrounds. It’s given me a different insight and perspective on different things.”
