Two Men Arrested in Tokyo Were Not Part of the Nicki Minaj Tour

Nicki Minaj has finally made a statement regarding the apparent murder of one of her concert goers in Tokyo last week.  The two men arrested in connection with the case were speculated by many including this blog to have been in Japan working on the Nicki Minaj tour.  Today Nicki Minaj finally addressed the rumors on twitter.

Saddened to learn one of my precious fans; found tragically murdered in Japan. My love & prayers are with the family of Nicola Furlong.

that person on your sight is NOT my dancer. We do NOT know the men in custody. Too much misleading information.

There were also reports that the two men arrested were actually on tour with Japanese-American singer, Ai. There are not a lot of updates coming out of Japan or Ireland on this story. Funeral arrangements are underway for Nicola. Her female companion on the evening she was killed is said to have very little memory of the events because the two young women were drinking heavily. Nicola’s friend has returned to Ireland to attend Nicola’s funeral. Meanwhile, details of the autopsy have not been officially released.

Rumors that Bobbi Kristina Quit For Better or Worse Are False.

Tyler Perry took to his Facebook yesterday to dispel rumors that were circulating that Bobbi Kristina had quit For Better or Worse.

I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of “For Better Or Worse”. NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finshed (sic) taping the season.

Looks like the show is already done for the season. It will be interesting to see her performance.

Nene Leakes on Fashion Police

Interesting and conflicting Atlanta fashion news today. Atlanta has been named in a Huffington Post survey as number 7 in a list of worst dressed cities, and they specifically mention the RHOA as an example of the problem.

If the flashy reality-TV stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are at all indicative of how the rest of Atlanta dresses, it’s no wonder our readers ranked it as America’s No. 7 least-stylish city. Hotlanta has one of the highest per capita incomes of any southern city, but as the TV show illustrates and the saying goes: money can’t buy taste.See More of America’s Worst-Dressed People

Meanwhile out in La-La Land, Nene Leakes just finished filming her appearance on this week’s episode of Fashion Police. The show will air on E! Friday at 10 pm. Let’s hope she didn’t do the tacky one shoulder housewife top. Joan will rip her to shreds. Could be a fun show to watch. Also Nene is doing her “looking at houses” routine on twitter. Girl, please. Nobody is going to give you a mortgage. We all know that.

Video of James Blackston, American Dancer Arrested in Japan Dancing on Train in Japan

This Youtube is going around social media of “King Tight” dancing on a public train in Japan. Check out the poor passengers’ reactions. The person who posted the video says this was days before the attack and murder of Nicola Furlong.  However, the person posting the video got a lot of information wrong on their description of the video so there is no way to know when this video was made. This wasn’t funny then, but it’s really not funny now.

Two Men Likely Part of Nicki Minaj Tour Arrested In Japan for Rape

James “King Tight” Blackston

Nicola Furlong, a 21 year old Irish foreign exchange student, was murdered in an upscale hotel room in Tokyo in the early hours of Thursday morning.  Nicola along with another female friend attended the Nicki Minaj concert Wednesday night.  Details are difficult to confirm but this is how the story is shaping up for me. Nicola and her friend met James “King Tight” Blackston, a backup dancer, and Larry Perry, a 19 year old musician at the concert. It is looking likely, but as yet unconfirmed, that the two were working on the Nicki Minaj tour. The girls were wasted. They had missed the last train out and decided to go to the hotel rooms of James and Larry.  In the car on the way to the hotel, the girl that lived, claims she was sexually assaulted. Both men are arrested on the sexual assault charge. UPDATE: There are conflicting reports on who the 19 year old is. Because in Japan you are a minor at 19 the police are not releasing the name. Most credible sources in the UK are reporting that it “Larry Perry”. Other sources have mentioned a young drummer who is on a tour unrelated to Nick Minaj. However that person is still tweeting and seems highly unlikely to be the correct 19 year old.

At the hotel the foursome paired off into two different rooms. The girl who went to James’ room lived. The girl who went to Larry’s room appears to have been strangled to death around 3 a.m. Other guests reported a loud disturbance. When security checked on the room they found Nicola strangled and Larry standing next to her. She was later pronounced dead at a hospital. Update: Reports are leaking that the deceased woman was sexually assaulted AFTER she was strangled.
Some international reports indicate that the Japanese often arrest on a lessor charge while building a case on the higher charge. It appears that one or both may be charged in the death soon. James has done previous backup dancing for Chris Brown and J-Lo in the past. Not much information on “Larry Perry” yet and the Japanese are not even officially identifying him because he is 19. Blackston is 23. Both are in deep shit.

UPDATE: The two men arrested were not affliated with the Nicki Minaj tour but were working with Japanese Hip Hop artist Ai.  Ai has not issued a statement with regard to the arrests.

Taking a Short Break

Sorry y’all. My dog, Banjo who is not even three years old suddenly became unable to walk/use his back legs. He’s 68 pounds so I’m having to help him get out to potty and give him his meds. Meanwhile, I’m having pretty much a total freak out. I’m going to try to blog again soon. Meanwhile, thanks for your concern and enjoy the long weekend!

Big Day For Nene Leakes on TV!

Nene Leakes was on a couple of shows today. First Wendy Williams, then Glee. Let’s discuss. This morning my damn yard guy shows up RIGHT DURING THE NENE INTERVIEW!  le sigh.  So I had to take enough time to say, “yes, please do everything”  (well we know that is not what I really said, but anyway, it all got done). So a few of you wanted to know what I thought about Nene saying that “Kenya Moore is not a new housewife” on WW today. So here it is. She didn’t say that. Nene continued with her whole “I don’t know her” thing which is a lie. Then she said ” I still haven’t seen her” in response to WW asking if she was on the show. None of that is important. My source is golden. My source says that Nene has been campaigning for Kenya for ages. I have never been let down by this source. Also, I know other sites are saying filming has started, but  … I don’t think much if any shooting has happened. I’m still saying you will see Kenya who just very recently followed and is followed by Nene on twitter. Y’all believe what you want.

On Glee tonight, Roz had a short scene with Sue Sylvester but what really impressed me was seeing her name in the opening credits of the Glee finale. I’m not “team anyone” but it did irk me that WW referred to Nene as a “guest star.”  She is not a guest star, she has a recurring role which is way better. Sometimes you need  to just recognize. I think WW is jealous of Nene and I was surprised that Nene came bearing gifts and being all professional considering how WW seems to slam Nene when she is not around. I honestly think that Nene not copping to the Kenya Moore thing was her getting back at WW. We shall see. At any rate, it’s clear that Ryan Murphy loves him some Nene. Nene said on WW today that she did not have to audition for the role of Rocky on The New Normal and I do believe that. Nene’s acting still needs a bit of work, but there is no better way to do that than to be on yet another primetime show. She just needs some experience and a bit of coaching. I’m not convinced that she will be a Hollywood star, but she is, and that is half the battle.

Usher Child Custody Case Continues


Image courtesy of @HipHopEnquirerMag
The child custody case between Usher and his ex-wife Tameka continued today with Usher on the stand again for the majority of the the day. Yesterday, Tameka’s attorney, Lisa West, caused Usher to cry on the stand when she alleged that Usher is more interesting in partying than taking care of his kids. She also asked him about drug and alcohol use. Usher also testified about taking his child back to Tameka with his new sidepiece in the car. Tameka noticed that he had parked down the street rather than in the driveway and she had gone out to the car to confront the other chick. An incident involving Tameka throwing a plate of food at the car was described. However, when I heard the story I had a hard time visualizing the incident the way Usher was describing it.  There may have been a reason for that because today West asked Usher if the reason he did not report this incident to the police is because it never happened. After rehashing that incident, West returned to her strategy of attempting to show that Usher’s busy schedule is not conducive to child rearing. Usher has issues with Tameka’s attorney because she doesn’t let up. Usher became non-responsive to West’s questions and ticked off the judge.

Also, Usher stated he did not recognize emails sent from his account that contradicted his previous testimony regarding his schedule. He is not winning any points with the judge.

Then just after 3p.m., all media were kicked out of the courtroom. Not sure what to make about that. They were allowing people to tweet from the gallery (@HipHopEnquirerMag) and then suddenly, everyone had to go. Then about an hour later everyone was let back in.

Pat Houston and The Billboard Awards Part 2

There are a few interesting updates from the Billboard Awards. First, Bobbi Kris and her boyfriend were gambling at the MGM. Which is fine for the boyfriend but illegal for Bobbi Kris. The main tea is that Pat Houston tried to have Ray J throw out of his seats. Apparently, they were sitting on the same row and Pat was unhappy with that. One of Pat’s body guards (because she’s very famous and needs them) told Ray J he had to get out. Ray J had a ticket for the seat he was sitting in so he just sat there. The body guards involved the hotel security and the police. This was all just before the tribute to Whitney was set to begin. It seems that someone convinced Pat that she was making a huge scene and that cameras were present so she needed to stop.  Pat’s assistant (because she is very famous and needs an assistant)  told TMZ that it was all Billboard’s fault because they suddenly wanted her to move to the seat that Ray J was already sitting in. That would not even be believable if this family had not done the exact same thing to Bobby Brown and his family at the funeral. Ray J was upset by the altercation and had to be taken from his hotel room to the hospital the next morning. He was treated for “exhaustion and dehydration.”

Pat is doing a great job getting that publicity for her reality show.

Teresa Giudice On Wendy Williams

I don’t have a whole lot to say about Teresa’s actual appearance on Wendy Williams today. She came on, she told us that she and Joe have a fabulous sex life and that she would never stay with a man who cheats. She implied that she was a virgin when she got married. She watched Wendy sample huge platters of food she claimed had almost no calories. She managed to correctly identify chicken, green beans and cookies so her culinary skills are clearly improving.  The only reason I am even blogging this is because I need y’all to explain the magic of television to me. Because Wendy came on and talked about last night’s Billboard awards and who won so it seemed like it was taped today, but we all know Teresa taped her interview last week. So did Wendy really put the same get up on this morning for hot topics and just pretend with another audience that she was about to interview Teresa? Did anyone else watch this show? I really could not pay attention to the guests because I was half asleep, half hung-over and trying to wrap my head around how the taping happened. Anyone?
