There are whispers that Janet could be planning the wedding of the century. According to One News, Janet is planning to jump the broom in the most extravagant style during a $24 million ceremony.
"They have tentatively set a late 2013 wedding date," a source reportedly told The National Enquirer. "They are still working out the details and the exact day."
Such a wedding wouldn’t be hard to pull off for Janet’s billionaire beau and she’s built up a nice bank account for herself as well. Reportedly the couple will fly in 500 of their loved ones for $3 million. And Wissam is said to be giving each guest a $10,000 Rolex watch as a wedding favor as a sign of appreciation.
"Wissam is going to splash big when he marries Janet. It’s going to be the wedding of the century,” the source explained.

I just read Andrea Reiher’s Zap2It article in which she documents racism, misogyny, and homophobia that’s already emerged in the Big Brother 15 house. Feed watchers have watched Spencer call women “cunts” and spit the word “fag” in Andy’s face. Similarly, Aaryn Gries complained that Andy would most likely get next week’s MVP because “people love the queers.” Aaryn’s also demanded Candice, an African American woman, say “asked, not axed” and suggested Helen, the season’s sole Asian American houseguest, should “go make some rice.” GinaMarie also wondered if they could make Helen’s eyes straight. And this is only WEEK 1! Imagine what will happen when they forget about the cameras.

Originally, it was reported that the 1 million copies of Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail paid for by Samsung would not count in Billboard charts. Well, the RIAA has since changed its policies. The “#NewRules” will accomodate those copies that Samsung will be giving away to their customers on July 4th, so Hov’s new LP will be certified platinum upon its release. Read the RIAA’s statement below.

'Being Mary Jane' review: A complex career woman by David Wiegand
Being Mary Jane: Made-for-TV film. 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 2 on BET; Series starts in January 2014.
"Being Mary Jane" is BET's first-ever original film, and by the time it's over, you'll be in love with the title character and find yourself thinking, "Wow, this should be a series."
And that's exactly what BET has in mind in the story of a career woman named Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union) who has it all - and by "all," we mean the responsibility of taking care of her family, pursuing her career and trying to find meaning in her life through Post-it reminders bearing words of wisdom from Kathie Lee Gifford and Dante Alighieri.
She also has a boyfriend who says he loves her, but keeps his wedding ring in his pocket when he pays late-night booty calls.
The film, airing Tuesday, is notable for many things, including a solid cast and a script that's willing to take the time to explore character in a realistic way. At the start of the film, Mary Jane, a popular TV newsmagazine anchor, is playing hostess to her drunk boyfriend, Andre Daniels (Omari Hardwick).

Songwriter Ernest Lee Straughter joined more than a dozen protesters Monday outside NBCUniversal Studios to demand the reality show judge on "The Voice" reach an equitable settlement.
"I just want a reasonable amount of money, then I'm gone," said Straughter, 62, of Riverside, a songwriter/pianist from Los Angeles who has played with the likes of Earth, Wind and Fire, Barry Manilow and Herbie Hancock, who had sued Usher for plagiarism in 2008. "I lost my house and everything, because I had to represent myself.
"I wrote the music," he said outside studio Gate 3 in Universal City. "Usher wrote the words. I just want my fair share for my family.Straughter, who had originally sought 20 percent, or roughly $80 million, said he is now willing to settle for less. He lives with a fiance and three of his four children.
