Will Nicki Minaj say yes to DJ Khaled’s online proposal? Doubtful, since the two aren’t even dating.
In a MTV News UK video, the Miami spin master presents the American Idol judge with a diamond ring he claims cost $500,000.
“I want to be honest with you,” DJ Khaled says. “I love you. I like you. I want you to be mine. The only reason I’m not telling you this face to face is because I know that you’re busy.”
The kicker: “We have the same symptoms. We suffer from success.”
DMX knows the drill. The rapper was arrested and released Friday in South Carolina and charged with driving under the influence. Greenville County jail officials say the 42-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was also charged with not having a driver’s license. The D man was arrested in a Phoenix suburb in 2011 after a trooper clocked him driving at 102 mph. He had recently finished a stint in prison on probation revocation for failing to submit to drug testing.
Ted Nugent lashed out against news media portrayals of him as racist for his recent remarks about the Trayvon Martin case. On Tuesday, the outspoken guitarist appeared on Nick Cannon’s podcast, describing the slain teen as a “gangsta wannabe.” And on Wednesday, he told a Boston radio station that Stevie Wonder was “brain-dead” for boycotting Florida over its stand-your-ground law.
“I don’t think you’ll find another person where the term ‘racist’ – that vicious, hateful term – is leveled at a guy that has probably done more to promote black artists, specifically, than pretty much anybody this side of (Atlantic Records founder) Ahmet Ertegun,” Nugent told the Detroit Free Press.
A court rejected an appeal by a member of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot against a previous court ruling that denied her an early release. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova has served a year and a half out of her two-year prison sentence and was appealing for parole. Along with two other bandmembers, she was convicted of hooliganism following a performance against President Vladimir Putin in Moscow’s main cathedral last year.
