Sayyy What!: Kim Kardashian- West


It seems like there is something always entertaining and interesting

going on with Kim! Wedding bells are in the air....again

 

 

The picture above was posted on Kim's twitter late Wednesday night. It is Kim posing for a picture in a wedding gown. 

 

Sources have told publication "Kim and Kanye are serious - they want to get married as soon as possible."But Kim figures that if Kris is going to drag their divorce on for as long as possible, then she'll put her wedding plans on hold and concentrate on starting a family with Kanye first."

 

"The truth is that Kim, 31, and Kanye, 35, have known each other for a long time and first met over ten years ago, so it's not a rush decision for her at all."

 

Maybe they are serious and this marriage will be the real thing, it might even last forever.

TREY SONGZ NEW ALBUM 'CHAPTER V'


 

 

 

On August 21, 2012 Trey Songz released his fifth album titled 'Chapter V'. The word on the street is that the music on this album is typical Trey. However, with hits like

"Heart Attack", " Dive In" and "2 Reasons", it is clear that no matter how predictable Trey may be, he can definitely produce hits. By far Chapter V is a fan favorite!

 

Recently, there has been some talk that the young R&B singer is starting to portray an R.Kelly-like image. The title of his song "Without a Woman" and the use of his vocal pitch on Chapter V is stirring up some questions amongst listeners. In the past Songz has stated that he admires Mr. Kelly and is one of his biggest fans.

Denard Robinson vs Usain Bolt in a race!! Who would win?


 

The Olympics may have ended yesterday but there is one more race we may want to see.

Usain Bolt  became the first man in history to repeat as a gold medalist in both the 100- and 200-meter races. He is regarded as the fastest man in the world. But Michigan quarteback Denard Robinson thinks he's faster!!

When asked if he could beat Bolt in a race, Robinson said "I think I could get him. I think I could get Usain Bolt in the 40-yard dash. I watched his start the other day, and I think I could get him in the 40."

Robinson has been clocked at 4.32 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Robinson ran track for the Wolverines track team, as well. He won the 60-meter dash with a time of 6.81 seconds -- .12 seconds ahead of the second-place runner -- in a meet against Ohio State.

How does Robinson think he would do against Bolt in the 60? "The 60? I don't know about that," Robinson admitted. "He'd probably pull away from me. But the 40, I think I could get him."

Robinson Vs Bolt....who you got?

Kelly to headline the cruise and he agreed to play two shows during a five day in October, sailing from Miami to the Caribbean.

R. Kelly says that he never got paid for the cruise. His rep said, "R. Kelly had been looking forward to the cruise and was ready, willing and able to perform for fans. He is sorry for any disappointment but plans to see his fans very soon on a U.S. tour."

 

Concerts Cruise sent an email to customers informing them of the cancellation and saying they will "handle all applicable refunds at point of purchase."

Meagan Good Covers Upscale Mag


 

Sexy newlywed Meagan Good is making the most of her good publicity from her wedding, hit movie Think Like A Man and the upcoming sequel, and her new NBC show she's set to star in.  Check out the fab chick covering the August 2012 issue of UPSCALE, and what she had to say about her equally sexy God-fearing hubby and being typecast....
 
She's set to star in a new network tv mystery series, and she just got laced with a wedding and beautiful ring from a great guy.  What else could a girl want? 
 
Meagan Good, star of the upcoming NBC series "Infamous", opened up to UPSCALE Magazine about what true power is in her eyes, and how her husband, DeVon Franklin, brought love and healing into her life.  And the gorgeous 30-year-old is determined to show people she hasn't been typecast as the sexy girl every man wants.
 
On being typecast: 
"There were a couple times where the director said 'We really like you, but you're a little bit too sexy.' And I'm like, 'Well, what do I need to do? Wear a turtleneck? You know, loose-fitting clothes?' And they're like "Nah, it's just something that you give off." I don't know that I necessarily believe that. I believe that people, when they have a pre-conceived notion of who you are, and things you've done in the past, sometimes they forget that as an actor you're able to shut off whatever you need to shut off, and you're able to turn on whatever you need to turn on."
 
On her love for her husband:
"To me there's nothing sexier than a man that loves the Lord. I can't imagine anything more attractive. And then, we just get each other, we don't judge each other. He understands me. His love has brought a lot of healing to a lot of areas that have been really painful for me. "
 
"Being with someone who is a preacher as well, people tend to try to sensationalize everything you do. So that's definitely been a different experience for me..."
 
On what true power is: 
My definition of power is being able to move, and live, and do the things that you aspire to do and that you believe are part of your purpose to do, without letting other people's opinions or judgements manipulate your direction, without getting discouraged when a door closes, and just kinda having a good sense of self, and knowing who you are, and being strong in your walk with God. All of that, to me, is what power is.
 
Loves her.
