Serena Gets Nekkid For ESPN+HIP HOP NEWS: Jim Jones, Beyonce On Kanye, Jay-Z, & XXL's Def Jam Cover

Common's girl Serena Williams is showing alllll her ass-ets on the new cover of ESPN magazine. I mean...really. Can anybody be mad at her for it?

Jim Jones was spotted leaving the Manhattan courthouse yesterday.  He had just admitted to punching a friend of Ne-Yo's (Jayvon Smith) the face in a Louis Vuitton store during a scuffle that erupted back in December.  Jimmy pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in his Dec. 22 dustup with Javon at the LV store on 5th Ave. Jimmy was all smiles though because he was sentenced to time served the few hours he was in custody after turning himself in to police in January.  That slap on the wrist was a rough sentence...

Beyonce finally spoke out about the Kanye/VMAs  incident.  After receiving her Billboard Woman of the Year 2009 Award a few days ago, Gayle King interviewed her in front of the audience where she gave her take on what happened that night:

Well, I knew his intentions, and I knew he was standing up for art; and he told me before, when they said the nominees, he's like, 'You have this award,'" Beyoncé told O: The Oprah Magazine editor Gayle King after accepting her award. "And when they didn't call my name he was, like, completely shocked. And when he walked on the stage, I was like, 'No, no, no!' and then he spoke, and I was like, 'Oh, no, no, no!' "But in the end, it ended up being a great night, and Taylor Swift did get her moment — and I didn't have to make an acceptance speech."

Here's video of B accepting her Award and her sit down with Gayle. More with Jay-Z and Def Jam's hip hop heads when you read the rest...

I have no idea why. I've never said anything to Braylon at all. But for him to do that is very childish. My friend is 130 pounds. Seriously. It's like hitting one of my kids. It doesn't make sense.
