AllHipHop.com caught up with Vida Guerra about her ongoing beef with The Game. The Queen of the Laddie Mags goes into extreme detail about how Game didn’t get anywhere with her at his infamous pool party, and how she’d take a lie detector to prove it. She also talks about becoming the next Fergie, why the Game has none, and why she’s still single, but my favorite part of the interview is where she talks about playing pool with rapper Too $hort. I love that the Oaktown legend is still hittin’ the scene at 40. (Random, but here’s a prom photo of Mr. $hort. High school doesn’t get much more hyphy than that, people.)
Meanwhile, MTV News caught up with the Game and asked him about Guerra’s rapping. "She can’t rap worth s**t," Game said about Guerra’s attempt at a diss track. "It’s more comedy than anything." Agreed, Game. Kinda like a bigtime MC picking a mic fight with a swimsuit model.
Maybe they were moved by Blades of Glory‘s Humps. Or maybe they see the crossover potential of Ice Cube, Ice-T or Vanilla Ice. Whatever the case, one of the world’s top figure-skating pairs wants to cold kick it by bringing beats and rhymes to the rink.
After getting a positive response to a routine that included some Justin Timberlake, U.S. ice dance champions Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto announced that they’d like to take it one step further and use hip-hop in their routines. "We’re trying to push hip-hop and it’s never been accepted in the current international community,” said Belbin. "Hopefully someday we’ll be able to spice up the competitions." "Hip-Hop is a huge part of (American) culture," added Agosto. "We’d love to tap into it."
Tap away, guys. And bring home some Olympic bling while you’re at it.
Did two of hip-hop’s biggest names impregnate women they worked with? Diddy and Jay-Z both say no, yet both thought enough of the rumors to address them in the press.
Diddy has been dogged by reports that Danity Kane singer Aubrey was pregnant with his child. Diddy recently talked to Hot 97 about the rumors.
"Check this out, she’s not pregnant, I’ve never dealt with that girl, I never even looked at her for more than ten minutes," said Diddy. "I just called to let you know you can move onto somebody else’s stuff."
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Jay-Z recently denied rumors that Jay-Z paid model Shenelle Scott $1 million to keep Jay’s name off of Scott’s baby’s birth certificate. "There is no truth to these ridiculous rumors," the spokesperson told AllHipHop.com. Scott and Jay-Z met on the set of his video for "Big Pimpin’."
Jay-Z is also reportedly down with Usher … to collaborate on a new track on the R&B star’s upcoming album. Hova’s spokesperson has yet to squash these rumors.
Box Set: Jay-Z
Radar points to an interesting – if also confusing – Fox News segment about the Eighth Annual Most Foolish American poll, which this year was won by Britney Spears in a landslide. (The winner of the previous four polls? Michael Jackson.) In the Fox segment, however, something’s gone wrong: Britney’s listed at capturing 33% of the vote, while President Bush held onto 40%. Clearly something’s up here, and it’s not just foreign policy or an aversion to underpants. We want to know what you think: Does Bush beat Britney for brainlessness? And will someone at that Fox affiliate been asked to go “hunting” with Dick Cheney?

Phil Spector Trial Takes Another Twist
New claims allege the producer said ‘all women deserve to die’. [NME]
As stupid (and sexist) as Simon’s, "You’ve got nice legs" comment to Haley Scarnato was, it probably saved her from elimination last night. Because, let’s face, Haley (who shared the bottom three with Gina Glocksen and Phil Stacey) does have nice legs, and while Gina may have nicer vocal cords, one of the most important lessons we’ve learned on this season of American Idol is that people aren’t moving on in this competition according to singing talent. So it was Gina’s time to go.
Mariela may not have been the best singer in the competition, but she was by far the most limber.
It sucks to see her go!
