CONGRATS COMMON! Â» Our boy Common has scored his very first #1 on the Billboard 200 with the release of his new album “Finding Forever!” I think congratulations are in order for this man, because in the 14 years he has been on the scene, he has never gotten a #1 album. Good for him! He deserves it. The Geffen set, which features production from Kanye West and a guest appearance by Lily Allen, sold approximately 155,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
MEL B DID WHAT?! Â» Stop the presses! Raise your hand if you knew Melanie Brown was married. Yeah, that’s I thought. I had no idea! Apparently, she and the dude we’ve been seeing her photographed with so often got married in a secret ceremony in Vegas this past June. Their marriage records from Nevada were recently leaked. The couple tied the knot on June 6, according to a marriage license filed in Clark County. In a recent statement, a rep for Brown said, “Regarding the marriage, Mel and Stephen have know each other for many years and were great friends first. Now they are deeply in love. The two are very happy together.” Well, ain’t that a bitch! She was supposed to do Larry King today too, but she had to cancel due to an unkown illness. Shoot, I was looking forward to it!
OH, SO THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE CALLING IT NOW?! Â» Amy Winehouse, the singer famous for her song “Rehab” was recently treated for what her rep calls “exhaustion.” You and I may know her by her alias Amy Crackhouse. Anyhow, homegirl was admitted to London’s University College London Hospital for exhaustion, and was treated and released just this afternoon. “The doctor said she was suffering from severe exhaustion, and she was told to rest,” says her rep. Oh wtf-ever. She’s probably having withdrawal issues or something. We all know she’s on the pipe!
