Lil Mama’s such a doll
Lil Mama does more than judge dance contests and crash VMA performances, she raps, too. Remember? After several years out of the booth, the "Lip Gloss" artist is back with new material that she’s about to drop in a mixtape.
Lil Mama rocked the dollhouse in her new video for the first track, "Scrawberry," where she seemed to have a lot of fun playing dress up. Take a look!

Amber Rose disses ‘Watch the Throne’?
Has Amber Rose hurled the latest online insult in her beef with ex-boyfriend Kanye West? The model, who is now dating Wiz Khalifa, may have let it be known that she’s no fan of Watch the Throne or Yeezy’s bedroom skills via Twitter today.
Someone posting from Amber’s account tweeted earlier today, “Congrats to @TheGame for having the number 1 album. Watch The Throne is as wack as Kanye’s Di*k anyway.”
The tweet was quickly yanked from her feed. Amber and Kanye have been taking snarky little shots at each other for months, but Amber is claiming that comment didn’t come from her.
"WTF!!! I shut my phone off and changed my password how the hell are they still HACKING me???" she tweeted this morning.

Erykah Badu tweets love for Drake
Maybe it was an inside joke, but Erykah Badu took to Twitter yesterday to express her admiration for Young Money’s Drake. She referred to him as an inspiration and described him as “brilliant.”
It’s always nice to see artists express admiration for one another. Strangely, Erykah’s sentiments went unacknowledged. So far, Drake hasn’t tweeted anything about Erykah.
Maybe he direct-messaged her.
See Erykah’s tweets.
Alicia Keys still ‘Unbreakable’
Singer Alicia Keys joins actresses Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore on the cover of October’s Glamour magazine.
The three, who worked together on the upcoming film Five, each spoke about their wishes for their families.
Alicia seems to be as happily married as she was the day she married Swizz Beatz, the ex-husband of “Love & Hip Hop” star, Mashonda.
“We’re such a bonded happy family, and I hope that we’ll always be able to be that," Alicia said. "For me, the most important thing is that we always take the time to understand each other and grow together. We’re all going to change. Otherwise, it’s boring. Who wants to stay the damn same all their life?”
It’s not clear whether “we” included Mashonda or whether Alicia was just referring to Mashonda’s children.
