Here's Janet Jackson looking like her Good Times character Penny Woods while keeping company with her beau Jermaine Dupri at the Prive launch party in Las Vegas in the early hours of January 22, 2008.
R&B crooner John Legend says he's tired of all the hate directed toward his girlfriend, Thai-Norwegian model Christine Teigen. "People are automatically condescending," Legend tells the New York Daily News'Rush & Malloy column. "People are automatically condescending. They expect her to be dumb and say, 'Oh you're just dating a dumb girl because she's hot.' But people judge you either way. If you're dating a girl who's kind of regular, you hear, 'Why are you dating her?' I don't get caught up in it. I'm more concerned with my happiness." Uhhh, **NEWSFLASH N!GGAH** Don't nobody want your pansy ass! I mean, really, dude.
On the flip side, the singer/songwriter also blames his beautiful girlfriend for his failure to pick up any Grammy nominations this year claiming she's so beautiful he's not taken seriously. Legend has won five Grammy Awards, but he insists his penchant for stunning ladies is stopping him from landing any more. Legend and Teigen met while casting his new video Stereo.
Below are several pics of Legend and Teigen at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Before dating Teigen, Legend was seen around town with Brazilian model Danielle Abreu. At the time, he dropped hints that he wasn't ready to give up the single life, and all of its perks. "We'll see how it goes," he told the outlet Starpulse in 2006 of his relationship with Abreu. "[As a musician], you have lots of women throwing themselves at you. You have to be disciplined and be with someone who trusts you — and who you don't want to cheat on. But there's always another woman around the corner, so it's hard to settle down because you feel you might be missing out on something. You can be a gentleman and yet still feel that way."
Legend just celebrated his 29th birthday with Teigen in Las Vegas and has a new album, Live From Philadelphia, available exclusively at Target.
This niggah, here! Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, is changing his moniker, for the sixth time. The mogul, formerly known as Puff, Puffy, Puff Daddy, P Diddy and Diddy now wants to be known as Sean John which is the mogul's first and middle names, and the names of the entrepreneur's successful clothing line. Combs better hope his latest name change doesn't cause any confusion. The mogul took on some new ventures last year, including a multi-year, 50/50 profit deal with Ciroc vodka. Combs also released a fragrance dubbed Unforgivable. "I have always evolved and taken a different name each time. It’s nothing unusual where I come from. Right now I want to be 'Sean John' because that's where I am right now," Combs said in a statement.
In 2005, Combs - who was then known as ‘Puff Daddy’, appeared on the Today Show and announced that he was altering his stage name yet again, dropping the “P.” and referring to himself simply as “Diddy,” saying that “the P was getting between me and my fans.” However, by changing his name to simply ‘Diddy’ - he upset Richard “Diddy” Dearlove, a London based DJ, who threatened to sue Combs, and an out of court settlement of $220,000 was agreed. As a result, Puff Daddy was unable to use the name Diddy in the UK.
Reggie Bush (who will soon become a former and/or retired NFL player turned- possibly-whack-ass-actor) and Kim Kardashian are now speaking about their relationship. "We've been friends for years," said Kardashian. "And the relationship just developed over time. Everything Reggie does is from the heart and that's a quality I've always loved about him." Girl, stop lying and learn how to add and subtract! Yall haven't even been together for an entire year. Do we need to remind you that it was just last January when your boyfriend at the time, Nick Cannon, dumped you over that sex tape debacle? How soon we forget. Besides, Bush has only been in the NFL league for 2 years. As a matter of fact, the two were reportedly introduced to each other last May (2007) through Kim's former BFF, Paris Hilton.
Bush, who was recently seen following Kardashian around like a little puppy dog during last weekend's Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah while they got their swag on (receiving free goodies from various vendors and sponsors at the film fest), says the only drawback to his relationship with Kardashian has been his introduction to the paparazzi. After only being photographed on the football field, Bush has had to deal with a new reality of being followed by cameramen everywhere he goes when he's with Kardashian. He's still amazed when he sees pictures of himself with her at the gas station, the mall or the airport pop up on the Internet. "I hate the paparazzi," said Bush, who plans to get into acting after he retires from football. "I honestly do. She knows I don't like it, but it comes with the territory. I deal with it. It doesn't make me view her any different, it's part of her life and so you just deal with it, but I hate it. I don't like it all. When I'm not with her, they don't care about me, when I'm with her they're all over us." Wait! What NFL top draft rookie football player do you know who goes from playing (if you want to call it that) in the league for a mere two years to making plans to retire just to become an actor? Something in the milk ain't clean.

Kardashian, a veteran of being the object of the paparazzi's attention, has helped Bush by telling him to be relaxed and ignore them whenever they're around. After all, let her tell it, the only thing worse than being followed by the paparazzi, is having a run in with the paparazzi. "I'm giving him a few tips here and there," she said. "We try not to take it too seriously. The paparazzi are really an invasion of privacy that you're never really used to and ready for but you learn to adapt to it and not really pay too much attention to it." Um, girl, you did a reality tv show where cameras were in your house 24/7... and now you wanna bitch and moan about an invasion of privacy? You allowed a camera crew into your personal space to film you while you got your horizontal hunch on with Brandy's little brother...and now you wanna scream invasion of privacy? You've become well-known for keeping the paparazzi's digits on your speed dial so that they're 'candidly' aware of where you're going to be...and now you whine and complain about your invasion of privacy? Well, guess what? WE DON'T BELIEVE YOU! YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE!
In the meantime, the New Orleans Saints baller, who is five years younger than Kim says he's never been happier. "We have a great relationship," he said. "We're both in the limelight so it's actually good for me and her. We both understand what goes with that and it's going to make us stronger in the long run. A lot of the outside stuff you just have to ignore and live your life and you can't allow people to dictate how you live your life. We're happy and that's all that matters."
Hmmm, I wonder has he seen her sex tape. I'll bet dollars to donuts that all of his boys, team mates, coaches, brothers, childhood friends, high school buddies, play cousins and even his haters have. LOL! I crack myself up sometimes with the things I say, I swear!
