photo 51  KENBARBIE TV: “Dirty Laundry” (Season 3 Episode 9) – The Single Life

Last night we went live with the latest episode of, “Dirty Laundry.” For those unfamiliar, “Dirty Laundry” can be described as talk show television’s urbanized version of ‘Sex and the City.’ The show features raw, opinionated, and often times controversial hosts: of course myself and Pumpkin of radio’s ‘The P Show’ , along with the occasional special guest.

This no holds barred talk show will make you laugh, smile, cry and sometimes piss you off as we candidly discuss relationships, sex, entertainment, and even fashion…whilst pushing every button and limit we possibly can. Our primary focus on the show is differences of opinion and how things can be seen from different points of view, setting you up for a time where fun, interesting, and always REAL conversation is guaranteed.

In this episode of ‘Dirty Laundry,’ Pumpkin & KenBarbie discuss entertainment topics such as the the drama between Beyonce getting sued by her fans, Yandy Smith & Mendecees Harris celebrating his homecoming from jail, & The Game’s domestic abuse allegations , before opening the phone lines and getting into ‘Ken’s Top 10,’ which this week features “The Top 10 Reasons Why Online Dating Is a Bad Idea.”

‘Dirty Laundry’ now airs live every TUESDAY from 9-10pm on Comcast Channel 95, Verizon Channel 36. For those not able to watch live, the shows will always be posted within the following hours via YouTube. Dirty Laundry: “Where if you dont air it out…WE WILL!”

If the news is indeed true, the 20-stadium U.S. tour is slated to begin in late June and the power couple plans to bring their show to New York to celebrate July 4.

Bey and Jay have been showing up at each others shows to make surprise appearances together, but this would be so awesome if they actually do a full tour together!

Both Beyonce and Jay wrapped up their own solo tours earlier this year and they made surprise appearances, albeit separately, at the 2014 Coachella Music Festival this past weekend.

BECAUSE YOU CARE: Ice Cube is Mad; Feels He Only Lost Award to Deceased Paul Walker due to “Sympathy”
16.04.14

20140416-064228.jpg

Ice Cube is not happy that Paul Walker and his Fast & Furious 6 costar Vin Diesel won the Best Onscreen Duo at Sunday nights 2014 MTV Movie Awards and he’s more than willing to voice his concerns.

The rapper turned actor says the late star shouldn’t have won posthumously and insists he and Kevin Hart should have taken home the trophy for their performances in Ride Along.

“We was robbed,” Ice Cube told USA Today. “Shame on you, MTV.”

Ice Cube says Walker, who died in a car crash back in November, only won out of “sympathy.”

“We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy,” Ice Cube told the newspaper of himself and Hart. “We were the best onscreen duo, period.”

“They should have gave it to him before he passed away,” Ice Cube added of Walker’s win.

Walker’s posthumous win isn’t the only thing that has the hip-hop star peeved. Ice Cube also dissed last night’s MTV Movie Awards by leaving mid-show.

“I just wasn’t into it,” he said. “I have been going in and out of these things for 25 years. If you ain’t into it, why torture yourself? As soon as you get bored, get up and leave.”

First of all, it’s a popcorn award, not an Oscar chill out. Second, be tasteful, that man is dead. I get it, but some things you don’t speak on.

Pharrell Williams: “I’m Proud of All My Work, But ‘Happy’ Changed Me”
16.04.14

20140416 055136  Pharrell Williams: “I’m Proud of All My Work, But ‘Happy’ Changed Me”

At 41 years old, Pharrell Williams is doing what most people his age could only dream of.

Besides the fact that Pharrell looks like he drinks from the fountain of Youth (either that or he’s a vampire), over the past few years, virtually everything he has touched has turned into gold.

In addition to Pharrell singing on and co-writing Daft Punk’s summer smash “Get Lucky,” and producing and co-writinh Robin Thicke’s mega-hit “Blurred Lines” … the jack of all trades also landed a number one hit with his “Happy” single.

But despite all of the success Pharrell has gained, he remains humble and true to himself.

Check out a few excerpts from a recent interview Pharrell did with CBS News’ Anthony Mason, in which the musical genius speaks on his single “Happy” blowing up, The Neptunes not working out as a group, his grandmother urging him to get serious about music, his mountain hat designed by Vivienne Westwood, changing the direction of his music and more.

On his hat — designed by Vivienne Westwood — becoming famous on Grammy night:

“One of my managers says, ‘The hat has its own Twitter.’ What?!?’ … I can’t tell you why people fixated on Vivienne Westwood’s hat, ’cause it’s not mine, it’s hers, right?”

On his vibrant clothing style:

“I suppose I’ve always had my own way. You know, they always say ‘Never judge a book by its cover.’ But the cover does say a lot. I’ve always been, like, an extrovert. If you think color, you kind of dress in color.”

On how his grandmother and band teachers helped mold him into the musical genius he is today:

It was his grandmother who urged him to get serious about music: “She had been diagnosed with cancer. And I was turning 15. And she said, ‘You love the drums. Why don’t you learn how to play the drums?’”

So he went to summer band camp and joined the school band: “And that’s where I met my first music teacher, Mrs. Warren. And my other band teacher, Mr. Warren. And then there was Mr. Edwards and then there was Mr. Sharps.”

“You remember ‘em all?”

“Yes, I do. And Ralph Copley had taught me how to play the drum set. My story is the average story, you know. It was filled with special people.”

“You’re giving everybody else credit.”

“Well, what am I without them? Just try that for a second. Take all of my band teachers out of this. Where am I? I’m back in Virginia, doing something completely different.”

“What would that have been do you think?” Mason asked.

“Struggling art teacher. Struggling because the rest of my grades were not so good. They were like Cs and D’s. And sometimes E’s!”

On The Neptunes not working out as a group:

In beginning band class he met Chad Hugo, who played sax. They formed The Neptunes. “Group wise, it just didn’t work. We were just too weird — or I was too weird at the time. I mean, hello?”

So The Neptunes produced other artists’ music, taking spare hip hop beats and infusing them with rock and pop. Their music flooded the radio.

On changing the direction of his solo music:

One of Pharrell’s few disappointments was his first solo album in 2006, “In My Mind”: “It didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. And I blamed everybody around me but myself. And I really had to take a long study on what I was doing and talking about on that record.”

That first record was too full of ego, he says. Now 41, and married to fashion designer Helen Lasichanh, Pharrell’s new album, “Girl,” strikes a different tone.

“What changed for you?” Mason asked.

“I realized along the way that there wasn’t enough purpose in my music,” Pharrell said. “Going back and listening to Stevie Wonder songs and Steely Dan songs, you’d see that Donald Fagen had a purpose. He had an intention. Stevie Wonder was really singing about something.”

On Happy’s seemingly overnight success:

“It’s super weird. Because I’m used to being the guy standing next to the guy. I was happy being that guy! It’s weird … I’m proud of all my work and I’m thankful. But ‘Happy’ changed me.”

Released last July in the film “Despicable Me 2,” it went nowhere at first. “When they took it to radio, they were like, ‘It’s just too different.’

“So here I am, ‘Ha-pppppy!’ They were like, ‘Uh, no.’” Then in November the label released a video, and the song exploded. It hit #1 in 24 countries.

Walk down the street with Pharrell Williams now, and from all sides people approach him, people of every color and every age. “People walk up with their toddlers — ‘There’s the ‘Happy’ man!’” Pharrell said.

“Are you okay with being the ‘Happy’ man?” Mason asked.

“I’m grateful.”

“You’re going to live with the ‘”Happy” Man’ and the hat for a while. You’re okay with that?”

“What else do I have any other business being but appreciative?” Pharrell responded. “It’s not my doing.”

SAY WHAT?: Beyoncé’s Baby Brother Nixon & His Mom Alexsandra Wright Are Homeless?
15.04.14

20140415 065251  SAY WHAT?: Beyoncé’s Baby Brother Nixon & His Mom Alexsandra Wright Are Homeless?

Alexsandra Wright, the mother of Beyoncé’s half-brother Nixon, has publicly announced that she is being forced out of their home because she is having problems keeping up with the Joneses “struggling” financially … and no one in the Knowles family (including Yoncé’s daddy Mathew Knowles, who recently had his child support reduced) has reached out to help.

Alexsandra exclusively tells In Touch that she and their 4-year-old son, Nixon, are financially struggling — and no one in the Knowles family has offered to help find them a home. “Nixon deserves to know his family, and I hope one day he will meet his sister Beyoncé,” Alexsandra tells the mag.

On March 3, a judge ruled that because Mathew, 63, lost his gig as his superstar daughter’s manager in 2011, his child support payments should be retroactively reduced, from $12,000 to $2,400 per month.

The ruling means he won’t have to make another payment for almost two years. “I can’t imagine how Beyoncé feels knowing she has a homeless brother,” Alexsandra says. “I know if I were in the same position, I would reach out. Maybe she is too busy.”

Back in February of this year, Wright revealed in an interview with Inside Edition (this woman LOVES giving interviews, right?) that she had been “forced” to go on food stamps due to Mathew’s then-outstanding $32K child support debt.

At the time, Wright said she planned to pursue legal action with the hopes of receiving some public assistance from Mr. Knowles.

Beyoncé hasn’t responded to the situation yet, and likely won’t, but Wright’s recent comments to In Touch Weekly are a clear contrast from her Inside Edition interview when she said she didn’t expect the Pop superstar to take “accountability ” and raise her son, which was something she said Mathew once suggested, even though he himself has never even met his own child.

“I don’t expect Beyoncé to take accountability. It’s not her problem. It’s not her situation,” Wright said. “Beyoncé and Jay Z have never attacked me. They’ve [never]done anything wrong to me. They’ve never been negative at all.”

Alexsandra and Nixon were pictured looking emotional as they packed their belongings into boxes earlier this month.

Nixon could be seen comforting his mother as she cried while sitting at the edge of their driveway opening letters, before packing boxes in the garage. The two also looked at photos together on their balcony before they finished packing.

HEARTBREAK HOTEL: Floyd Mayweather & Shantel Jackson Call It Quits After 4 Years
15.04.14

20140415 064740  HEARTBREAK HOTEL: Floyd Mayweather & Shantel Jackson Call It Quits After 4 Years

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is as single as a dollar bill right now…

The boxing champ and his “ex-fianceé” Shantel Jackson have called it quits after being together off-and-on for 4 years.

Floyd proposed back in 2013 and surprised Jackson with $10 million diamond rock, but things have since gone sour between the two, and Shantel’s rep confirmed the news to TMZ Sports over the weekend that the couple are no longer together.

“Miss Jackson has moved on with her life from Floyd and is saddened that she has had to deal with many problematic and dramatic situations from the media since their break up.”

Jackson’s rep says Shantel’s Instagram account was mysteriously shut down in the wake of the split — and she suspects it was a hit job from someone she knows personally. We’re told Shantel is currently trying to get her account up and running again.

As for what happened to the $10 million engagement ring — so far, no word on what happened to it.

Her Instagram account now appears to be up and running — she posted this photo Friday (Apr 11) with the caption: “Because I’m Happy…..”

20140415-064458.jpg

…But still no word on that $10 million ring, which we doubt she’s really going to give up willingly.

WORDS FROM THE HURT: Naya Rivera Accused Big Sean of “Stealing” Rolex Watch That Actually Belonged To Him
15.04.14

20140415 062807  WORDS FROM THE HURT: Naya Rivera Accused Big Sean of “Stealing” Rolex Watch That Actually Belonged To Him

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

The break-up between Big Sean and his now ex-fiance Naya Rivera is getting nastier than ever.

Naya claims Sean stole an expensive Rolex watch from her home and took to her Twitter account to call out the G.O.O.D. Music rapper.

Naya quickly deleted the tweet (it’s not clear whether this was before or after she unfollowed Big Sean), but not before we screencapped

20140415 062650  WORDS FROM THE HURT: Naya Rivera Accused Big Sean of “Stealing” Rolex Watch That Actually Belonged To Him

But wait a second before you go around calling Big Sean a “Big Thief.”

Sources close to the former couple claim that the watch actually belonged to Sean. It was the first purchase he made after he became successful, and he gave it to Naya to wear (likely as a memento) …. however, it was never hers to keep.

We reported days ago … Sean called off their engagement and upcoming wedding because he was scared off by Naya’s “violent fits of anger and jealousy.” The couple had been engaged for the past six months.

As the old saying goes, “all good things come to an end.” And in the this case, it’s a very, very, sad ending.

OH YOU MAD HUH?: Rapper Trina Reportedly PISSED Over French Montana & Khloe Kardashian Dating Rumors
15.04.14

20140415 061552  OH YOU MAD HUH?: Rapper Trina Reportedly PISSED Over French Montana & Khloe Kardashian Dating Rumors

French Montana’s “roommate,” rapper Trina, is reportedly PISSED over the fact that he is obviously banging Khloe Kardashian.

Ever since they were first spotted out together publicly, folks have been wondering whether Khloe and French are dating, and according to TMZ, Trina is mad that people are speculating about a possible relationship between Kardashian and her kinda-sorta man.

TMZ reports:

Trina and French weren’t officially BF and GF — but we’re told they were living together in New Jersey — sources close to the couple say she was devastated after seeing video of Khloe/Montana all over each other last week at a strip club.

We’re told Trina feels like she got played — She and French were talking regularly up until a few weeks ago when he started working in L.A. on his next album … and now it’s radio silence.

There’s no official confirmation that Khloe and French are a couple or romantically involved. But from the looks of it, we wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve hooked up a few times.

Poor Trina! Maybe French didn’t know you two were actually in a relationship, considering it seems like y’all were just roommates with benefits.

Let’s hope French’s penis isn’t small, I definitely see Trina making a song about him in the near future.
