Keyshia Cole Keyshia Cole

Keyshia Cole recently stopped by at The Breakfast Club Morning Show to clear up some things as well as promote her new record, “Rick James.”  The singer also explained her beef with Michelle Williams as well as her criticism of Beyoncé.  She also talked about divorce rumors and her relationship with her family.

Why made Keyshia criticized Beyoncé’s “Bow Down”?  She said:

“I love Beyoncé. Well the thing is I met Beyoncé a few times and she’s a sweet girl. I just felt like that [song] wasn’t her thing. Like dude said, she switched it up or something. That’s just not what I know of her.”

How did her beef with Michelle Williams actually start?  The singer revealed:

“She started that [whole thing] and it really hurt my feelings too because she’s Christian and a church girl and all of that. We talk on the phone and you apologize for taking the tweet down that you said about me in the first place. I just felt like everybody jumped on me because I’m from Oakland, I’m the ghetto chick and I’m always starting stuff in actuality I’m just saying how I feel. I don’t feel like I was starting nothing with her, I was just getting her back for what she said to me.”

“I felt like, ‘Damn, everybody going in on me!’ You got ol’ boy ‘Hamburglar’ (The-Dream) up here talking. You got Rico Love up here going in on me and everybody defending her but in actuality she called me and apologized. She said she never should have tweeted that or whatever.”

Will they ever be friends again?

Ashanti On Breakfast Club Ashanti On Breakfast Club

Ashanti recently visited The Breakfast Club Morning Show to talk about a lot of things including her decision to become independent.  Additionally, she also explained her beef with Irv Gotti.  The singer was also asked if she has been dating NFL star DeSean Jackson.  Did she really cheat on Nelly?  Is her Braveheart album all about him?

What makes her decide to go independent?  Ashanti said:

“Between 2009 and 2012, I got offered seven deals from majors and each of them involved a 360 [deals] and for me, the integrity of that, I just couldn’t sit with me because that was before they were offering carve outs. And I feel I just built too much to have them dig that much into my pockets. So it was kind of like a choice and a push. And it was scary, super scary. I remember being in L.A. and thinking ‘Damn, did I just commit career suicide?’ You know what I’m saying? But we went into survival. I have an amazing team. And I felt like this is what we need to do.”

Irv Gotti expressed that Ashanti was not loyal at all.  What can she say about this?  Ashanti replied:

“Of course he did… and it’s crazy. Irv is very emotional… But you know, Irv, that was a lot of stress he dealt with and I feel like a lot of things, a lot of statements he made came from an emotional place instead of the truth.”

“Because it was very obvious…I rode ’til the wheels fell, the car caved in, the windshield blew out, the mufflers- you know what I mean? I rode out the whole time. I went to the trial. I was in Canada shooting a film and it specifically stated in my contract that I could not leave [and] I came to the trial 3-4 times.”

“So for him to say, ‘Oh she’s not loyal, she ain’t wanna throw up the Ms,’ that’s not true at all. So I feel like now is kinda like my chance to be ‘brave’ enough to talk about the situation. Because I’m kind of like on a whole new page, a whole new movement now…”

Was she really cheating on Nelly?

Rosie Perez and J. Lo Rosie Perez and J. Lo

Actress Rosie Perez talked about her previous beef with Jennifer Lopez in her new memoir.  The disagreement started when they were still together in ‘Living Color‘.  In her new book entitled, “Handbook for an Unpredictable Life” she exposed that the creator of the show, Keenan Ivory Wayans, does not really like J.Lo since she was ‘chubby and corny‘. She states that:

“All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage.”

She also pointed out about one particular incident wherein J.Lo was in rage and said:

“some ghetto biatch, screaming and pounding her chest! You pick on me, me and only me, every f–king day! Every f–king day! I work my ass off, deliver and you keep pushing me aside, treating me like sh-t! I know I’m good! I’m better than any of these girls, and you know it.”

Rosie also recalls that when J. Lo left the show, she made ugly remarks about her saying:

“I was blindsided. I’d thought we were cool. I called her up. She wouldn’t pick up. Frustrated, I left her an irate message on her answering machine. Instead of calling me back and hashing it out like friends do, she went on a major talk show and reiterated my lashing.”

What can you say about Rosie’s revelation?

Towanda Braxton Towanda Braxton

The viewers of Braxton Family Values have observed that this season is all about the beef between Tamar and Towanda.  What is the beef about?  It all started when Towanda threw some comments towards Tamar’s husband Vince.

Some of the viewers think that she was jealous of the success of her younger sister.  The fans started to send tweets towards Towanda.  However, there is one particular comment which made her react.  The tweet said:

“And she can’t help it that her husband is a multimillionaire and yours is a bum! #bvf @towandabraxton # jealous”

Tamar, Vince and Logan Tamar, Vince and Logan

During this time, Wanda brought up the tax problems of Vince by tweeting:

“Check the web boo! He also owes $3.3 million to the irs…guess I’m jealous of that too huh?”

Most likely, this is Towanda’s way of retaliating when Tamar made some comments with regards to her alleged relationship with Kordell Stewart.  According to the singer, Kordell is not a good catch for Towanda.  But this does not mean anything anymore since Kordell already denied having a relationship with Towanda.

Is Towanda jealous of Tamar?
