foxybrown2_edit.jpgRapper Foxy Brown is out of jail! Fans greeted her on Friday as she made her exit outside Rikers Island where she was.

According to reports Foxy said the first place she wants to go is church. "I've fot to get on my knees" she was quoted as saying. But things didn't go according to plan, the rapper instead went shopping in Harlem, had some soul food and was driven to her childhood home in Brooklyn...according to reports.

Her mother, Judith Marchand, presented her with smiley-face balloons and the two hugged outside the family's home in the Prospect Heights neighborhood. A VH1 crew captured the reunion for an upcoming reality show."I did almost a year in prison, a year in prison, just because my name is Foxy Brown," she said.

Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was sentenced in September 2007 to a year in jail for violating the terms of her probation after she was accused of hitting a woman with a cell phone. She was on probation for an August 2004 attack on two manicurists at a Manhattan nail salon. She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault in the 2004 incident.


Mariah ticks off fans

Mcare_edit.jpgFans of Mariah Carey booed the pop superstar at an autograph signing on Thursday when she showed up two hours late and left before signing albums for devotees who had waited eight hours to meet her.

The singer, who was promoting her new album E=MC2 at Universal City Walk in Los Angeles, left tired fans fuming when she stopped signing and "went home."

Carey fans, who waited in line to meet their heroine, have flooded the Internet to slam the diva, claiming she showed up two hours late and didn't stay around long enough to meet and greet the 1,000 devotees who were promised time with the singer.

One angry fan says, "The first 1,000 people who bought her album from (record store) FYE got a guaranteed meet and greet (wristband), but she left with more than a hundred people still waiting. Some fans booed and others even trashed their copies of Mariah's new CD and yelled profanities at her."
