    Nicki Minaj to quit music

    Nicki Minaj might be tired of fame. The rapper, who recently shut down her Twitter page, told Tim Westwood that she could be leaving the music game.

    “People aren’t even giving the kid props for taking it back to that essence,” she said in a British accent. “This is my fourth mixtape, really. The kid did like that to feed her fans. But really now, the kid thinking maybe she should leave the game.”

    And don’t expect her back on Twitter anytime soon, either. When asked if she ever planned to start tweeting again, she said, "I can’t."

    Mike Tyson got someone pregnant in prison

    There’s at least one big omission in Mike Tyson’s one-man show. Mike claimed that he fathered a child while in prison.

    ”I didn’t talk about getting a prison official pregnant, ” Mike told ESPN. "Oh yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby.”

    He failed to elaborate on the details, so it’s not clear whether he fathered a child during his first prison stay from 1992 to 1995, or during his six-month sentence in 1998.
