PEASURE P FIRES BACK…
Just days after a Twitter user put the former “Pretty Ricky” singer on blast for child molestation, the singer has fired back & denied any of the accusations!
“All of the recent rumors and accusations that are being circulated about me are 100% false… I have never met or known anyone by the name of ‘AGoldstein’ or Laura Goldstein or Ashley Goldstein, which I believe are fictitious names.”
– Pleasure P statement through attorney
Seriously? All this over a comment made through a social networking site!??? Don’t get me wrong… the whole idea of child molestation is terrible, BUT let’s double check our sources & not always believe what we READ on the internet!!!
BEP TOUR DATES…
IT’S OFFICIAL! The Black Eyed Peas have announced the dates for their upcoming “The E.N.D. World Tour”
According to KN sources… the series kicks off Feb 4th in Atlanta & travels all the way through April & ends in Vancouver (at least that’s what we’ve seen so far)
SUCKS! The only stop through Texas is on March 19 in Dallas (BOO!)
NO MORE MIXTAPES FOR 50!
That’s pretty much all we have to say… NO MORE MIXTAPES FOR 50!!!
The G Unit general has stated that his upcoming mixtape will be his last
50 claims that the mixtape was done before his latest album “Before I Self Destruct” even came out… only thing is he didn’t release it in fear of taking the attention off of his new CD. (well the CD didn’t do that great so maybe he should’ve dropped the mix!)
None the less… 50 is done w/ the mixtape game & retiring from it. (YEA… we’ve heard that before)
“I felt that my core [fan base] that really enjoys the aggressive content may enjoy the mixtape and try to compare it. I know hands down the album is better but I just didn’t wanna release it at that point. After that, I won’t offer any mixtape material.”
