Singer Ashlee Simpson cleverly avoided saying whether she was pregnant while appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday.
Simpson, 23, recently engaged to rocker Pete Wentz from the band Fall Out Boy, danced around Ellen's question of whether she was expecting. Here's what Ash said:
"Well, that has been going on for quite a while," Simpson said. "That is something that I choose personally not to discuss."

There may be a new hot couple to tackle the Hollywood scene. The word is spreading like cancer that pop superstar Mariah Carey is dating actor and rapper Nick Cannon. The two reportedly hooked up after Cannon was hired to appear in Carey's new music video, E=MC2. When they asked Mariah she said she didnt know how to answer that! lolll That means she fuckin wit Nick. She needs to stop frontin with her secretive ass! If you wanna get her groove back like Stella, then go on then girl! Nick's a shorto, I can't blame her.
Hip-hop is not without its unique ironies: Who could have guessed that one of today’s most self-consciously futuristic artists would hail from the storied borough of the Bronx, where the music was born, way back in our 1970s Kodachrome past? The coincidence is not lost on Mickey Factz.
“I’d like to think I’m everything that Afrika Bambaataa would’ve envisioned hip-hop to be in 2008, 2016, or 2030,” says the lanky 22-year-old former paralegal. A lofty ideal, but Factz’s thoughtful, easygoing manner is far from arrogant; what’s more, he’s got the neighborhood bona fides to back up his claim to be the famed hip-hop forefather’s progeny. He attended Bambaataa alma mater Adlai E. Stevenson High School in the East Bronx, which also counts MCs Remy Martin and Drag-On as alumni. The experience was formative for the tricky lyricist and fashion plate, who fiends for kaleidoscopic skater streetwear.
“It was the competition,” says Factz, slouched on a leather couch in a Lower Manhattan restaurant. “A lot of other schools came to ours to battle. Big Pun came by to check us out. If you were somebody in the Bronx, you had to have stomped through Stevenson at least once or twice.” Like Bambaataa, Factz — who grew up on gospel and then graduated to hip-hop as a teen — dismisses the usual musical boundaries. “I want a cross-pollination of all genres, from electro to techno to pop to rock, because the urban communities aren’t listening to just Jay-Z anymore,” he explains. “They’re listening to Linkin Park, Spank Rock, the Cool Kids, Kid Sister, and Panic at the Disco.”
Factz’s 2007 mix tape Heaven’s Fallout demonstrated that eclectic curatorial taste. Few rappers would rhyme over tracks from the Prodigy, Röyksopp, and Mark Mothersbaugh’s score for The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou; fewer still possess such a presence and versatility so early in their career. On the Internet-only song “I’m Sean (50 Shots More),” Factz raps from the perspective of Sean Bell, an unarmed man killed by New York police in 2006. But he also jokes about being “too Zoolander for ‘em.”
“I’m just trying to have a good time while bringing a little bit of positivity back,” he says, grinning. And what could be more old-school B-boy than that?
Factz’s name derives partially from Natural Born Killers character Mickey Knox: “Mickey loves Mallory Knox and would do anything for her. Hip-hop is my Mallory. And facts are all I try to talk about.”
Factz was suspended from high school for inciting a riot during an MC battle. Later, the principal invited him to rap over the school’s loudspeaker.
Now you know you can't miss this event!

So fellas bring an extra T-shirt, and ladies break out your best Batty Lick Shawts, because its going down. Prepare to SWEAT!

Pay close to attention to this video. New York doesn't show New York love in the Hip Hop community. When you look at the South, Midwest, and West Coast, you see them holding each other down! Why don't New Yorkers hold each other down? New York won't come back until we support each other! The best talent comes from New York, but you would never know because niggas are too busy cosigning other states before we cosign our own. When Artists such as Mickey Factz, Curtains, Smoke & Numbers,Skyzoo etc.. have videos shoots, you should see other artists from New York there showing love. What about producers?? Niggas should be getting beats from producers such as Hasan Insane, Precize, and Clyde & Harry Productions
Usually I'd wake up on a Friday morning and yell TGIF! Today I woke up saying "R u Fuckin Kidding Me". Before I even turned on my television this morning, I had already received many text and instant messages saying that the officers who gunned down Sean Bell with 50 shots were aquitted today of all charges.
Shit like this pisses me the fuck off. This just proves to me that there will never be justice or peace in this world. Here it is we as minorities are trying to live in a world of SHADES of GREY, but we are forced to still live in a BLACK & WHITE world because we are the constant targets in society. We look at it as murder, they look at it is as one of us out of the way. I'm far from racist, but I have to call it like I see it, and I see and smell Bullshit B!
They announced the verdict, expecting us to act like "niggers" and wild the fuck out so they can beat and lock us the fuck up so they can have more of us in the system! They know what the fuck they doing... trust me they KNOW!
R.I.P Sean Bell
FUCK THE PO LICE (Po lease)
Mickey Factz wrote a song last year title i'm "Sean 50 Shots", where he takes the place of the victim Sean Bell. I hit my brother Mick up today and told him I'd be puttin the song up. So ofcourse Mickey sent it to me with a message to you guys. So here it is:
As some of you may or may not know, Sean Bell of Queens, Ny was murdered senselessly by 3 undercover police officers. Today the case that was supposed to send these cops to jail were acquitted on ALL charges. So basically, the justice system is not labeling discharging 50 shots as a crime, but as a procedure. Which means that every minority walking the streets of America is liable to get pummeled by a barrage of bullets. Me being an artist, I wrote this song in January 2007 and it is clearly as relevant as it was then as it is now. I ask people to listen to the song and pass it along as a testament to the death of Sean Bell. May he rest in peace and condolences go out to his family and friends.

Check Out Kasual's new song "Lean" Featuring Bizkit & HP! Produced By Joe Milly representing Strong Island ! Owwwww
This track is Hot, gotta a bitch leaning now! Owwwwww!
After an on and off relationship from 2002, Kanye West and fiance' Alexis Phifer have called it quits.
Here's what Alexis said:
“It’s always sad when things like this end, and we remain friends. I wish him the best in his future and all of his endeavors. He’s one of the most talented people I’ve ever met.”
Remy Ma originally expected to get sentenced on April 23rd, but now it has been moved to May 13th (Atleast she will be able to spend Mothers Day with her son). It's been said that she will be getting a 3-5 sentence, a 3-5 is better than 25. Shit her sentence is kind of light.
This Brawd kills me! Talkin about she had ONE Mega Hit!! Keyword is ONE! Lmaoooo! Where da fuck the hits at??? SMH!
"Aint No Bitch Aint Did That" lollll! Looks like she was on that short yellow bus with the rest of them. SMHH!
Here's Khia's "MEGA" hit she was talking about. i can't front the shit was poppin in the club back in the days, but you need some more heat baby girl.
LL Cool J feat. Redman, Method Man, Cannibus, DMX & Master P . This was the hottest track and the best collaboration in 1997. I remember recording this song on my tape recorder when they played it on Hot 97 and trying to memorize the Lyrics
so i can go to school and spit it back to my homeboyz in the hallways, and of course my ass got caught by security and had to go back to class.
Here's a little history on this Track and the Rivalry between LL & Canibus :
In the original version of the song, Canibus rapped "Yo L, is that a mic on your arm? Lemme borrow that", referring to LL's Tattoo of a microphone on his arm. LL heard the verse, interpreted it as a diss, and responded to it with his own verse. This essentially created a battle between two MCs in the same song. In an attempt to calm tension, LL later called Canibus to say he saw the line as disrespect, and asked him to change it, to which Canibus complied. LL did not remove his verse, believing that with Canibus' verse gone no one would know who he was referring to in his verse. However, the original version of the song was leaked to the public. This would set up a rivalry .Canibus released his single "Second Round K.O.", containing lyrics dissing LL, who later responded with "Ripper Strikes Back." In this song he not only dissed his producer Wyclef ,but went on to berate ex-friend Mike Tyson for appearing on "Second Round K.O." LL did another diss, with "Back Where I Belong" featuring Ja Rule .Canibus replied to both tracks with his "Rip the Jacker" using LL's "I'm Bad" backing track.
