Well, we guess this means those pictures were real!
We're talking full frontal. Full. Frontal.

Wow! She really hits the nail right on the head with this one!
Foxy Brown recently gave her opinion on the feud between Lil' Kim and Nicki Minaj, and claims that although the new rapper has been compared to her, as well, she doesn't have any beef with her, and thinks that Kim shouldn't, either!
"Nicki has always been cool with me. She and I have something online I did for her — it was a video shoot with Lil' Wayne and Rick Ross, she wasn't signed yet. And she was like, 'Foxy is the first female artist who ever embraced me.' She was classy; she was articulate. I'm so proud of her. Of course, people everywhere clearly are saying, 'She wants to be Foxy, she wants to be Kim.' Everybody's going to say that. But do I think she's doing an incredible job at branding herself? Yes, I do. When you're an icon in the music business…like Mary J. Blige. Keyshia Cole came out after her, you didn't hear Mary J. Blige starting a beef with her just because they compared her. Mary J. Blige stayed clean. She does what she does, and I do what I do. Had Lil' Kim let the people say, 'Oh, you're trying to be Kim, you're a fake Kim,' then it doesn't come directly from her. But when you're using that as a platform to bring your new album out, that's like, 'Oh my God, wait a minute.' I don't condone it at all; I don't think it's cute. Nicki clearly drew from both Kim and me. And she hasn't been disrespectful to me in any way — I haven't heard her be disrespectful toward anybody else but Kim. And at some point, it's like, 'O.K., Kim, you've had a problem with Foxy, you've had a problem with Nicki, you've had a problem with Faith, with Charli, with everybody. It's like, enough already.' I choose to stay out of it. Put out great music, and that's that."
Say it, sister!
While Nicki has definitely been influenced by Lil' Kim and Foxy, she's going in her own direction! We would like to think that everyone could be as mature about the matter as Brown is, and just be proud of the fact that they paved the way for female rappers with their success!
No need for sour grapes!
What do U think?? Do U agree with Foxy??

We hear it's pret-ty fab!
The beautiful and talented Rihanna just turned 23 a few days ago, and had herself a little birthday shindig after performing at the NBA All-Stars game on Sunday!
Not only were there red-velvet cupcakes adorned with Barbados flags, but it was a star-filled evening for the young singer!
Here's a bit about what went on:
Cee Lo Green and his crew were spotted too, noshing on some oxtail and plantains. Mary J. Blige and Jay-Z, who were "laughing and having a blast," posed for photos in a corner. Blige also "squealed with excitement" when she caught sight of Diddy, and then hugged him.
Snoop Dog and Warren G rolled in at 1 a.m. and proceeded to dance and sing along to some old-school hip-hop songs while guests cheered them on."
Sounds like a BLAST!

What a sweet surprise! It must have meant so much to her!
During the desert-themed celebration at Skylight West in NYC - with celebrities like Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Gayle King in attendance - Blige's idol, Anita Baker, even made a surprise musical appearance, and the birthday girl even got to join in!
A source explains:
"They brought in palm trees and sand. Mary J. said [that] growing up in the projects she was lost, and owes her life to being inspired by the song 'Caught Up in the Rapture' by Anita Baker. Anita got up to toast her and started to sing the song. Mary J. began crying and joined in."
That sounds like an absolute dream come true!
We can't even imagine how thrilled she must have been to be surrounding by friends with whom to share that experience!
Congratulations, bb! And happy happy to you!

Bergdorf Goodman was a mad house during Fashion's Night Out on Friday.
SJPeePee stayed for less than 5 minutes because the massive crowd was overwhelming, but Mary J stayed to hawk her new eyewear and designer Tom Ford signed books.
Posh was also there being her usual fashionable self, although we can't say we're loving her hair style.

Mary J. Blige is planning a musical expedition…and she is taking Jazmine Sullivan along for the ride!

"[She is] one of the most amazing female singers out right now in this generation, and of course, she's got to be a part of my generation. She's my sister. I love this girl's voice and spirit. Jazmine Sullivan is for real, and she's going on the road with me."
