Ray J moves from sex tape to new album

ray_j.jpgLOS ANGELES - Ray J is cruising down the Hollywood Freeway in his black Lamborghini when fans in a passing car recognize him. The singer/actor/sex-tape star slows down so they can snap a photo. In an interview with AP news Ray J said his main goal right now is to get his music out there and to put his acting skills back on track. "I really know how to sing and create and put things together that it controversially or be it from music or acting," he told the web site.

The infamous sex tape, which also shot Kardashian to a new level of notoriety, was made in Cabo San Lucas on the socialite's birthday five years ago. Ray J says the two had been a couple for "four years off and on," and insists the video was made strictly for private purposes.
"We were just having fun, letting it all hang out," he says. "But I didn't think they were going to see it actually hanging out," he told AP.

He says he doesn't know how porn purveyors Vivid Entertainment got a hold of the video, but he and Kardashian filed lawsuits after its release. Both reportedly settled for multimillion-dollar sums. The experience and its aftermath inspired his new music. He says that Lil' Kim lured him into the studio, and his mom and manager, Sonja Norwood, urged him to release the album on his own Knockout Entertainment label.

Musically, things are looking good so far. The album's single, "Sexy Can I," is a legitimate hit, currently sixth on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and the video is getting play on MTV and BET.


Rob Lowe -- The Bitch Set Me Up!

lowe_rob_07.jpgWow...such strong language, but it's safe to say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Rob Lowe says he's about to be blackmailed by a former employee and he's not taking it lying down.

According to Lowe claims that a woman who worked for him for seven years just demanded $1.5 million in hush money, otherwise she's going to accuse him of what he calls "false terribles." Taking the first swing, Lowe, in a column on the Huffington Post, reveals two text messages the woman in question left for his wife, which don't suggest any "anguish" or unhappiness. Rob even asked his Rabbi for advice on how to deal with the situation. It's a shonda!

Hmm, let's see how this one plays out...interesting!

naomi-campbell.jpgSuper model Naomi Campbell didn't stop throwing her tantrums until she received her reward - being banned from British Airways! Well that has not been confirmed as yet though.

Her ban resulted from she was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer.

According to a Reuters report, the 37-year-old, released on bail pending an investigation into the incident, said she hoped the row with the airline could be resolved "amicably."

BA said it had not made any announcement regarding Campbell. When asked about a report in the Mirror tabloid saying she had been banned, a spokesman said:

"We don't comment in detail about matters relating to individual passengers.

"All incidents of abuse against passengers or staff are taken extremely seriously by BA and will not be tolerated. We deal with cases on an individual basis and will take whatever action we feel is necessary."

Campbell's spokeswoman in London added: "Naomi has been flying with British Airways for nearly 30 years and has been a good customer. She hopes this can be resolved amicably."

Well from our side, it's time she stopped behaving like a spoilt brat and act her age!
