It’s no secret that rapper Wale wears his heart on his sleeves. Although the DC native has achieved much success it seems as if he isn’t comfortable at his level of artistry and in his most recent interview with Billboard he gets candid about it. The rapper also gets personal while sharing stories about taking pills, going through a miscarriage with his ex and more.
These are the things you are most likely going to hear about on his new album The Album About Nothing.
Get into it below.
What are you talking about on this album that hits closest to home when it comes to your life?
The music industry. You can say I’m sensitive, but music is why I live. Other people have kids or a strong woman in their lives; all I have is my music. I constantly work my ass off and I’m not in these magazines — all I can go by is the people and what they say. People ask, “Why do you check social-media comments?” But what else do I have, bro? I don’t get no major articles. Nobody talks about Wale like that. So what do you do when you’re busting your ass and taking pills to stay up and be able to provide the right energy, and you’re not seeing the proper response?
What kind of pills?
My confidence was shot, so I’d be taking whatever to keep me in a good mood, to get me in the right mood for an interview. I’m not going into the details as to what I was taking, but there’s definitely something for that. Just like there’s a fuckin’ app for everything, there’s a damn pill for everything. Or something you can pour in your glass. I was depressed not being where I wanna be in my career when I’ve put the work in. I wasn’t sleeping. I was drinking all day and I didn’t have anyone to go to. I couldn’t fight it. Those are some of the demons I talk about on the album.
On “The Matrimony,” you rap about going through a miscarriage… (more…)
Most people don’t joke around when it comes to owing them money, but in this instance it was all fun and games!
Yesterday in the wee hours of April Fools’ Day, Rihanna teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel’s camera crew to give him a taste of his own medicine. While Jimmy was sound asleep Rih and the crew crashed into his bedroom with confetti and plenty of dolla’ bills to throw around. Dressed up in all black like a martian, the singer put on an unforgettable performance for Jimmy to her new single Bitch Better Have My Money. After Jimmy woke up and realized what was happening to him he said:
It seemed like a UFO had landed

The turn up was so real on the Breakfast Club Monday morning. One too many shots had Sevyn Streeter gushing over her rapper boyfriend B.O.B. The singer says the two were really great friends in the beginning and she believes the chemistry that they share musically is what brought them closer together. Now that Sevyn has taken that eggplant off the market you don’t have to worry about her killing the fun in the bedroom.
She believes in not saying no when it comes to performing sexy activities. With the exception of anal of course. Ha!
I think that when you commit to somebody and you take them off the market. I don’t think you should ever say no. Anal sex I’m not into. But I mean like if you’re tired. If somebody’s tired and their like ‘oh I don’t feel like it’ , no! Because at the end of the day, you took that person off the market and they can’t go and be with somebody else because they’re with you. Sooooo don’t you ever say no!
Do we agree?
Sevyn also says that because they share such a valuable friendship that even if the relationship were to end tomorrow they would remain great friends.

Wow! It’s already been two years since I created Ihatemypublicist.com. I literally was just talking about it one day, six months later I was on my way down 85 south making my way to Atlanta.
I literally had no idea what I was getting myself into when I first started out. It was so easy in the beginning, I assumed that things would remain at a steady pace. Chaaaa no! Ha! I was so wrong. The kid has faced more hardships than a little bit. But with God, faith, family, friends and the power of the universe on my side I’ve been able to beat the odds.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak on Simply The Dime’s Blog Talk Radio show. It was actually my first time being on any sort of radio show. I’ve sat in and watched other shows but I’ve never done one myself up until now and it was super fun. We talked a lot about myself, how I got started with the site, the journey leading up to now and more. I dropped a few gems along the way as well.
Everyone that tuned in really enjoyed the show so I thought it would be a great idea to share it with those of you who missed it. Well I won’t beat your eyes up, ha. Listen to the full interview below. (more…)
Guess Chris Brown hasn’t quite gotten over the breakup between he and his model ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Fed up with the ongoing and blatant disrespect Karrueche left Chris immediately after finding out that he was the possible father of a 9 month old girl.
This past Saturday Karrueche’s interview with Iyanla aired on OWN where she opened up to fans about the ups and downs she endured while dating the famous singer. A source tells Hollywood Life that Chris watched the interview but it was pure torture for him to see his ex like that. The source says:
He’s not mad at anything she said in that interview. He just wants her back.
After seeing just how hurt he made her feel, he vowed to never let her down again if they got back together.
He came to the reality that he’s the problem. Not Karrueche. Not Rihanna. Not Nia or another woman. He concluded that he’s the one with the emotional and commitment problems and if he doesn’t get those issues in check, he’s going to severely damage ever woman he comes across throughout the rest of his life.
Sounds believable. Especially after he released this photo on Instagram and minutes later deleting it. (more…)
I like my girls BBW!
Chaa this is tea to us. Now we know what all these women are going crazy over.
So about a month or so ago, the former Flava of Love reality star Deelishis stopped by Kandi Burruss’ Kandi Koated Nights online talk show. While there Deelishis was asked who was the best she ever had and we were shocked to find out it was the 6 God. She mentioned that because they strictly share a friends with benefits relationship that enables her to sit on it whenever she wants to. Ha!
According to The Shade Room, her conversation with Kandi went as follows:
Kandi: So what’s the best you ever had
Deelishis: There’s this guy…this rapper guy..he sometimes sings in his raps.
Kandi’s Co-Host: He’s a rapper from Toronto
Remember how souped we all were when Evelyn Lozada sat down with Iyanla after her break up with Chad? Chaaa this might be better! HA!
Karrueche has chosen to break her silence and is spilling tea on what it was like dating her longtime singer boyfriend Chris Brown. In an emotional heart to heart interview Karrueche will sit down with Iyanla Vanzant to set the record straight. For the first time ever Karrueche is opening up about Chris cheating on her, the decision to date Chris after the Rihanna “beating” and on what the break up was like after she found out about Chris’ alleged 9 month old baby.
Karrueche agreed to do this interview only because she was promised that things would remain positive. But when she felt like Iyanla didn’t believe her and was hounding her for answers Karrueche’s manager kicked Iyanla and the OWN crew out the “daw”. HA!
We’re told that things cooled down after a few hours and they were invited back into the home to finish up with the interview.
The show is set to air this Saturday on OWN at 8 pm.

Baby Royalty and her mother Nia Guzman were pictured in Houston on Monday in front of Chris Brown’s tour bus.
According to TMZ the two were picked up in a limo from the Houston hotel they were staying at to meet Chris for some “father-daughter” bonding. Nia and her half-sister were escorted to the bus by Chris’ bodyguard where they met with him so he could spend time with the baby.
This only fuels rumors that the baby is his. And if this is true why did they have to meet him on the bus? He couldn’t arrange something classier? -___-
