#TBT: Nick & Aaron Carter Don’t See Eye To Eye On Sesame Street

Nick Carter and little bro, Aaron may be trying to bury the family drama for Nick’s wedding on I Heart Nick Carter but it wasn’t that long ago that the two were arguing surrounded by the Muppets.

Check out this vintage clip of the Carter brothers on Sesame Street from 2003 where they sing “Loud & Soft” about two people who have different views on just how to sing. (Loud, soft, high, low, good and, well, good.) Here’s hoping the brothers have the same harmonious resolution when it comes to matters of their family’s beef.

Check the clip now to see baby-faced Nick belt it out with his brother by his side. We sure hope the two can make it work for Nick & Lauren‘s wedding on the season finale of I Heart Nick Carter next Wednesday at 11 PM ET/PT.

Soulja Boy Tweets That He’s Single & Releases Number To The Public

View Photo Gallery

Soulja Boy and Nia Riley didn’t appear on Love & Hip Hollywood this week but that doesn’t mean there isn’t drama happening behind the scenes. The rapper took to his Twitter Thursday morning to declare that he’s single and released his phone number to the world, simply saying, “Call me.”

This is confusing news considering that it was only earlier this month that Soulja posted a photo of Nia on Instagram, saying that she and their daughter were in a car accident and asked fans for prayers. The photo has since been deleted.

Do you think Soulja and Nia are really through for good? Do you think these are just young kids trying to figure stuff out one day at a time? Scroll through the gallery and let us know what your thoughts are in the comments!

Yung Berg Says He’s Gonna Give Teairra A Hit Record & Hazel Is “Delusional B**** Of 2014″ But He Loves Her

Yung Berg may not have made an appearance on this week’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywood but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have plenty to say about it. Berg stopped by costar Yesi Ortiz‘s Power 106 FM show to talk about episode 6 and Teairra Mari‘s live performance.

He said, “I’ll still rep for Teairra, you know, I think she deserves a hit record and I’m gonna give it to her.” When it came to next week’s episode and Berg’s relationship with Hazel E, Berg said, Hazel? You know, like I said, I call her a lot of different things. I called her ‘respectable woman;’ I call her Arica [Haze's real name is Arica Kane]; I call her Hazel but on my downtime I call her 4 AM AKA Melanie Fiona because I only hang out with her from the hours of 4 AM – I think her office hours start at, like, 4 and they end at 5:45-ish. You know, right before daybreak…She might be one of the most delusional woman. I respect her. I respect women but she’s going for the ‘delusional bitch of 2014,’ you know what I’m saying…I love her.

SMH. What do you think of Berg throwing so much shade Hazel’s way? Is Hazel really the most delusional? Do you think Berg can really help resurrect Teairra’s career? Find out on new episodes of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Mondays at 8 PM ET/PT.
