Kanye & Jay-Z Perform A Brand New Track From BluePrint 3+Celebs Do Vernon Davis' Weekend+Lauryn Hill's Story Featured In People

Kanye West and Jay-Z hit the stage together last night at Madison Square Garden for a surprise performance of a new track Kanye produced for his big brother.  It will appear on Jay's now confirmed Blueprint 3 album releasing sooner than we think.  No name was given for the track, but check the video to watch them perform it.  Nice.    Celebs hit up DC a few weekends ago to celebrate NFL baller Vernon Davis' Weekend: Vernon looked nice in his suit at his event at The Park on Fourteenth.   Neicy Nash was in town to party it up.  Looking fab even with that damn flower.  And um, I have a feeling her new man "Wood" has nothing to worry about in regards to that last pic.   More pics when you read the rest...

Nelly's Still Bringing the Sean John Swexy+J-Hud Covers Upscale+The Obamas Cover Essence+Llyod's Album Release Party

Diddy has up a new vid with some behind the scenes footage of Nelly's swexy Sean John Underwear photoshoot. Nice. YBF chick Jennifer Hudson is looking fabulous on the October '08 cover of Upscale magazine.  Hot.   The Obamas are covering the September '08 issue of Essence magazine.  And here's a snippet from their feature story: Despite all that has changed for them publicly, the Obamas insist that little has changed in their private lives. Their friends are the same. And Fafily treats them the same, as at their last Thanksgiving. “Everybody came over to our house just like nobody was running for president,” Michelle says, laughing. And sometimes, the Obamas find ways to merge their two lives. At the end of the day in Butte, Montana, the family returned to the local Holiday Inn Express where they were staying, ordered dinner in from a local restaurant, ate cake, and cranked up birthday girl Malia’s favorite music: Beyoncé, the Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana. “We just spent about two hours dancing and singing, rocking out,” Barack told the reporters on his campaign plane the next day. “Malia said it was the best birthday she’d ever had.” He pauses, then adds wistfully: “I don’t know if she was just telling us what we wanted to hear, but I can tell you from my perspective, it was one of the best times I have had in a long time.” Loves this family.  And the Oprah effect has been calculated (not too scientifically though) and apparently her support of Barack will give him over 1 million votes.   More ish when you read the rest...

Don't believe the hype.  Chrihanna is still in effect:   They were spotted shopping it up around L.A. on Melrose yesterday as Chris carried around one of Rihanna's pooches.   And TMZ sources say Toni Braxton will most def be a contestant on this new season of Dancing With The Stars.  Of course, the DWTS producers aren't confirming anything yet.  But she's dealing with her heart problems well and will likely kick ass on this show.  Team Toni!   More with Michelle Obama and Tyra when you read the rest...

Tracy McGrady's Child Support Case Wraps+Cassie Covers <i>Complex</i>

Tracy with his daughter Layla (5) and son Layman (3)
  Another one for the He's My Baby's Daddy Files.  Tracy McGrady had a daughter with a woman named Pearl Vega back in November of '05...while he was engaged to his now wife Clarenda.  He and Clarenda had been in an exclusive relationship since '96, but that didn't stop T-Mac from having a baby with this Pearl woman.  Last year, she took him to court demanding child support in the amount of $204,000/year.  But the judge just awarded her $54,156 a year a few days ago instead.  Apparently Ms. Vega was trying to use the extra mula to support her college education, a lavish lifestyle for herself and for her other two kids according to T-Mac's lawyers.  But Pearl's lawyers say her daughter needs the same lifestyle Tracey's other children have: McGrady shares a six-bedroom, 23,000-square-foot house with a pool outside Houston withhis wife and three children. He spends $5,000 per month on a chef and $1,732 for a housekeeper. One of the children had a $16,000 birthday party for about 40 children, with a magician, clown, face painter, games and music. McGradyand his family spend about $45,000 per month for personal travel, sometimes on private jets. The children went on trips to New York, to North Carolina a dozen times -- to Florida about the same number -- and to Atlanta, California, the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Bahamas, Mexico, the Virgin Islands, and Rio de Janeiro. They stay at Ritz-Carltons, have private preschool and tutors, and get thousands of dollars of clothes every month. And clearly the judge sided with Tracy's team.  This money is supposed to be for the kid...not her.  So maybe the $54k just might be fair.  Or not.  Either way...chick better count her blessings.  Ask Curtis' baby mama Shaniqua.   EDIT: I gave the wrong info earlier.  It is indeed $54,156k A YEAR that Pearl Vega will be receiving.    Here's Cassie's cover shots for the new Complex In preparation for her upcoming album, Cassie speaks out about her past mistakes and claims that the second time will certainly be a charm.  "Based on my past and how my last album came out, I really need to come back much much stronger," she says in the new August/September issue of Complex.  "I wanted to have more personality.  Before, I had tracks delivered to me; you pick and you choose, and there's no personality behind it, nobody knows who you are.  I really want to tell a story when I'm doing a song.  Vocally, either you like my voice or you don't.  I'm not trying to blow like Mariah, back when she was doing that."   Um, "Back when she was doing that"?  B*tch please.  I talks ish about MiMi but never about her talent.  And Cassie for damn sure needs to shut that sly ish talking down.  The August/September issue of Complex hits newsstands August 12th nationwide.    Cassie's Complex outtakes (slightly NSFW) and quotes when you read the rest...

Punk & J-Hud Display Their Couple Status...Again+Other Ish

Jennifer Hudson's trying to hide her relationship with David "Punk" Otenga.  But she's not doing a good job:   Snaps for the kid.  But real talk....that's one of the fiercest murses/hair tool kit fanny packs I've ever seen though.   J-Hud and Punk were spotted at an Atlanta Hair Show sponsored by BET J this weekend and Jenny was a celebrity guest.  And, of course, Punk was there tagging along like his multi random appearances with Jenny aren't suspect.  TheYBF.com has these exclusive pics from the event...and yes, we now can officially confirm that these these two are a couple.  Jenny and her "people" were overheard saying at Friday's event that she wasn't ready for them to go public yet.  Hence the separate pics they insisted on taking.  But clearly she doesn't know we put 2 and 2 together several weeks ago.  By the way, I also hear from YBF snitches on the scene that they were caught kissing when they thought no one was looking.  And video of that should mysteriously appear online soon...   Photog: Freddy O   More with Wendy Raquel Robinson and Beyonce when you read the rest...
