Somaya Reece is planning to return to reality TV. Namely the outspoken model/femcee says she will be back on the new season of VH1's hit reality show "Love & Hip Hop." She recently opened up about the new season and her approach to reality TV.
"It's funny because so many people have asked me, 'How does it feel to not be the villain?' [Laughs] I will say no matter who decides to come to our show, be yourself," Reece said in an interview. "Don't try to be a wh*re or act like you're going to bust a cap in somebody. Don't turn into somebody else because you're on television."
"If you're going to come on this show with a bunch of strong women, you better know to just be yourself," she added. "Especially for [Kimbella], if you're coming into a situation where you don't know anyone, be honest because neither of us on the show likes dishonesty. It's really important to remain honest and true to yourself."

Pusha T caught a lot of people's attention with his latest freestyle. The rapper's "Don't F--- With Me" features some anonymous digs at unnamed foes over Drake's "Dreams Money Can Buy" beat. But many people are interpreting some of the song's lyrics as darts thrown at Drizzy Drake himself.
"The nerve of ya, he'll sit and clip at your lines like he ain't heard of ya/ I seen it happen before that man will murder ya," T raps, in what some fans are interpreting as a subliminal diss at former G.O.O.D. Music artist Consequence. But what really got tongues wagging was the following lines: "Rappers on their sophomores, actin' like they boss lords/ Fame such a funny thing for sure, when n*ggas start believing all them encores/ I'm just the one to send you off, bonjour/ See yourself as I pull up in that mirror tint/ Skins vs. blouses, you mirror Prince, 'Chappelle's Show,' all of you Neal Brennans, sketch comedy, who is for real penning?"
Do you think Pusha T was taking shots at Drake?

Kreayshawn gave Carson Daly the low-down on exactly who she is during a recent appearance on his show. The Oakland upstart emphasized her array of 'talents.'
For everyone who didn't know.
"I'm a rapper, I'm a graphic designer, director, model, DJ and a professional b*tch snatcher," Kreayshawn said. "There's a lot of people that want to push you down. One, for being a female and one for being white. It's hard but I don't see it like that. In Oakland, that's how you grew up...The best about everything that's going on is I have my head on my shoulders, I know what I want, I know my vision and it's not like I signed this record deal blindly -- whatever happens, happens. I know that I'm a good person and that I'm smart and funny. If the music thing doesn't work out, I'm talented at a million other things."

Entertainers Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz and Ciara all helped launch the Get Schooled Foundation's "Wake Up and Get Schooled" campaign this week. Celebrities record phone calls that will be played for young students in the mornings that encourage them to start their day and get to school.
“The pre-recorded messages, running throughout the school year until June 2012, stress the importance of getting up and going to school every day," according to Executive Director Marie Groark. "Studies show that students with more than 10 absences in a school year risk falling behind. Students with more than 20 absences have only a one-in-five chance of graduating.”
“One of the key factors in students graduating and succeeding in their educational goals is merely getting them to campus in the first place," Executive Director Marie Groark, of the Get Schooled Foundation. "By using the power of celebrity and persuasion, we are encouraging students to wake up and get schooled!”

Miami's DJ Khaled defended his constant use of the N-word in an interview with DJ Green Lantern on Invasion Radio [video here]. Khaled, who is Palestinian, says he grew up using the word and thinks people should look at context. He feels he's earned the right to use the term as long as it's not negative.
"I'm a n*gga," Khaled said. "If somebody ever took that in an arrogant -- If someone thinks it in another way, they dumb. I grew up like that. It's slang. It's actually a positive word the way that I use it, the way that Ace [Hood] is using it. If you think like that, that goes back to the Internet. The hate."
"For me to say 'We the best, oooo weeee n*gga, we the best!' You know what I'm talking about," Khaled added. "N*ggas that's thinking that is dumb f*cks. Once again, I'd like to shout out the fans who love this music. What makes me mad, when I grew up, n*ggas was calling me sand n*gga. That's ignorant, because there's only one way to say it. You can't say, 'Yo what up my sand n*gga?' That's not the way we grew up in the streets -- When I say 'What up my n*gga,' I say that to Green all the time. 'What up my nig?' That's just me greeting you with love. But if somebody takes it another way, they dumb."
There's nothing like thug love. Papoose is still loyal and in love with his incarcerated wifey, fellow rapper Remy Ma. Papoose talked about how difficult it has been dealing with the fact that his woman is locked down, a gender reversal for what typical goes on in hip hop.
"Definitely, it's hard. But how we got our life constructed is as if she's there, even though she's not there. Basically, my phone line is open 24 hours a day. Just like a regular family would function, I don't make decisions that would concern our family without her," Pap explains. "She's involved in everything in our household. Even though she's incarcerated, she's only 40 minutes away. I take the kids to visit her, and like I said, I don't make any decisions that concern my life, her life or our kids' lives without her."
"Even though she's behind that wall, we still live our life like that wall don't exist," he says. "I got my closet behind the wall on one side, and her closet is on the other side, as if she's still there. All her sh*t is hung up nice and neat. There's certain times I gotta do things without her. There's definitely times when the kids need a woman's opinion more than mine."

Beyonce share some of the details of her pregnancy and what it was like hiding it for a little while. She acknowledges that it got more and more difficult but is glad that things came out as they did. Now, she's just basking in the glow of expected motherhood.
"Actually I am having so much fun, it has been the most fun time now that it has been announced and I don't have to [hide it] ... it was really difficult to conceal, but now that I can be proud and excited about it I'm having so much fun shopping -- it's great," she explained in an interview. "My mother has always told me that beauty comes from within and what's exciting about being a woman is you can say today I feel like being, today I feel really conservative, today I'm feeling classy, today I am going on a date and I want to just be a showstopper and you know; there is this variety of beautiful clothes that can bring out whatever you feel inside but it comes from here and you should wear your clothes they shouldn't wear you."
