LLOYD BANKS FREE
Fresh from being booked & charged w/ assault & robbery after beating up a concert promoter in Ontario, Lloyd Banks has been released on bail

Word is… the G-Unit soldier paid $50,000 to the Canadian prison & was released back into the U.S.

According to Lloyd’s lawyer… Banks will plead not guilty and…

“If it stays in the lower courts, it takes about a year and a few months to resolve. If it goes to the higher courts, it could be as along as a year and a half to bring the matter to court.”
– Patrick Duchame, MTV News

Free?  We’ll see for how long!?!

TOP OF THE FORBES
So Forbes has released it’s Top Entertainment Earner for 2009 & guess who’s on top?

BEYONCE & JAY Z (as if you didn’t know)

Yup they’re on top … as a couple, they raked in $122 million from the time of July ’08 to July ’09! (can I borrow a dollar?)

Interesting note… Beyonce’s earnings doubled Jigga’s!!!  ($87 million!)

Right behind the royal couple of Hip Hop & RnB… Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart together earned $69 million (I would’ve never guessed it)

I guess congrats? (for obviously having more money than all of us!? haha)

MELANIE ON JIMMY
Did you see Melanie Fiona on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this week?

Well in case you didn’t… HERE YA GO!

Currently, the Grammy nominated singer is on top of the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart & will open up for Alicia Keys on the “Freedom Tour”

Congrats Melanie… and GOOD LUCK on the Grammy!
