Pitbull talks Pants-gate, Rick Ross shedding pounds, but how?

Good to know Pitbull has a sense of humor about those pants: the white high waisted floodwaters that were all the buzz after the World Cup opening ceremonies. Last week while appearing on The Tonight Show he told host Jimmy Fallon, while in Orlando: “Who would have ever thought that the talk of the performance would have been some rolled up pants? If I would have known that, I would have been rolling up my pants for many years already.”

Fallon, who donned a white pair himself to commiserate, congratulated Mr. 305 on being selected to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.

Biggest loser

Rick Ross is the incredible shrinking man. The rapper has been showing off a slimmer physique lately. It’s no secret that Ross has long been battling the bulge. In April, he said in an interview with Washington, D.C., radio station 93.9 WKYS FM that he had no specific goal weight, just wanted to get healthy.

New on the agenda: CrossFit workouts and eating well. Imagine that! “You know, the most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money,” Ross told London celebrity journalist Tim Westwood last month. “But now, they [his trainers] give me fruit to eat. I forgot what fruit tasted like. I eat pears now and s--t like that.”

There may be another reason for his appearance: the gossip website reports that the entertainer underwent lap band surgery.
