Lil Wayne to release jail diaries.

After having served eight months in Rikers Island for charges of gun possession, Lil Wayne has since released countless songs and his ninth studio album, Tha Carter IV.

Despite not getting particularly good reviews (even I – a self-professed ex Weezy stan didn’t rate it particularly well – read my review of it here) the album reached number one and was certified double platinum as well as nominated for four Grammy awards at next month’s ceremony, including best rap album and best rap song for Look At Me Now.

My main grievances with the album were that it didn’t provide any insight into the undoubtedly life-changing experiences Weezy must have gone through while behind bars. I was hoping to see progression, emotional insight, and what he had learned during his months of incarceration, including his reaction to the millions of fan mails he received through his ‘Weezy Thanx You’ project – in which he urged fans to send him mail which he replied to through updates on a website.

It seems my wishes have been answered, however, with Weezy recently announcing that he would be releasing a book consisting of diaries he wrote whilst incarcerated.

The book – which is called Gone Till November – is set for release on the 28th of November 2012 and will feature his thoughts on family, children and the people he has met in his lifetime, said Grand Central Publishing.

“[Lil Wayne] kept detailed journals of his inner and outer life while he was on Rikers Island, and they certainly tell a story. They are revealing,” said Ben Greenberg, executive editor at the publishing company.

November seems so far away.


Drake Fan Tattoos His Name On Her Forehead.

We all know that many artists have very, very loyal fanbases. But the fainting, shrieking girls at the front of concerts don’t seem so bad anymore.

To those who don’t know… I used to adore Lil Wayne. So much so in fact that I wrote him letters to jail, I recited every.single.lyric off by heart… I even had a necklace made that read ‘Mrs. Weezy.’

[Luckily that is in the past.]

But it seems Drake has a fan that puts all of the above to shame. Luke Wessman, a tattoo artist based in LA recently sent a photo to Complex magazine of a girl who had tattooed the artists name across her forehead. The girl even had her eyebrows shaved in order to get the work done.

Don’t believe me?

Kelly Rowland Accidentally Reveals Sex of Baby Carter.

Ex-Destiny’s Child member, X Factor judge, ‘Motivation’ singer and… blabber mouth.

It seems Kelly Rowland has let slip on the sex of Beyonce and Jay Z‘s baby while at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of the Year Awards yesterday.

“I have no idea what I’m going to buy Beyonce at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible. She won’t be spoiled but she will be very well looked-after.”


Jay has been reported as saying that if ever he had a girl, she would be named Brooklyn Carter. Lets see if he keeps his word when the baby is due February of 2012.

Kelly Rowland flee’s from X Factor drama

Misha B stirred up a whole lot of trouble in the recent X Factor shows, causing a rift between judges Kelly Rowland and Tulisa. Jumping to her acts defence when Tulisa accused the contestant of being a bully, the 30 year old got into a heated argument with Tulisa on Saturday’s live show.

Kelly has allegedly gone back to Miami to de-stress, leaving her girls in the lurch. “Its very arrogant” a source told The Sun.

The N Dubz singer has been said to be very stubborn, so any hopes for a reconciliation will have to come from Kelly’s part, although that seems unlikely. Respect your elders, T.
