New York city officially has its first case of Ebola and already people are in a state of panic. According to the NY Times, a NYC doctor, Craig Spencer, who recently treated Ebola patients in Guinea — tested positive for the Ebola virus on Thursday.

Before being officially diagnosed, he rode the subway from Manhattan to Brooklyn on Wednesday night, when he went to the the Brooklyn Bowl, and then took a taxi home. Spencer is currently being treated at the Bellevue Hospital Center and is in isolation.

Scary.

1995 MTV Movie Awards
(TLC’s T-Boz, Left-Eye, and Chilli in 1995)

I love long-buried stories of totally random love connections like this. While this has absolutely nothing to do with anything, Chili from TLC was reminiscing on the 90’s with OK! Magazine, on the horrors of thin eyebrows, the magic of TV-VCR combos, the days of touring with MC Hammer
Then she dropped a celeb-drama bomb!

OK! Mag: Is there a movie from the 90s you can still recite the lines from?
Chilli: I’m a movie buff but I have to think about movies from the 90s. Clueless—I loved Amber’s, “Whatever!” It’s funny because I saw that movie with Prince. He took me to see that movie. I’ve never told this story! We were in Indianapolis and the theater was closed but of course they opened back up from him so it was just he and I watching Clueless.

solange jay z fight.jpg

Something very serious must have happened between Solange and her brother-in-law Jay Z during the Met Gala last week. While everyone was documented having fun at the glamourous party, the entire Carter/Knowles clan attended an afterparty at the Standard Hotel and were later seen leaving via private elevator.

In the surveillance footage you see Beyonce and Jay Z enter, as well as their security guard. Solange enters and as soon as the doors close, she starts to angrily confront Jay Z. Her anger escalates into a full on physical attack, punching, kicking and thrashing until the bodyguard restrains her. And even then she is still gesturing to Jay and trying to get at him (via TMZ).

While Jay Z reacted to Solange’s fury by grabbing her leg to prevent her from kicking him again, he never fights back or shows visible signs of anger. Beyonce does not intervene with Solange at all. All parties remain calm to prevent the fight from escalating further. And the bodyguard deftly stops the elevator to make sure the incident remains private, or so he thought.

It does not seem as though Jay is surprised. And neither is Beyonce. Both seem very calm but obviously upset. Solange did not seem drunk only because when she enters the elevator she appears calm. And when paparazzi catch the whole family leaving the building, she also seems calm. But still very angry. Beyonce gets into the car with her. At first Jay Z looks to be getting into the same car as well, but is directed to a separate car.

Family disputes are par for the course. But rarely do we see behind a curtain as ironclad as the Carters.

UPDATE: Extended footage of the altercation has surfaced, in which Solange continues her attack on Jay Z for another two minutes. At one point, as Beyonce begins to exit the elevator, Solange launches her purse at Jay before her sister reenters the elevator to try to calm things.

rob ford

By now you should be well aware that Rob Ford is not your typical mayor. He smokes crack, tramples colleagues and speaks with a Jamaican accent in fast food joints. Oh, and just this weekend he showed up at a Beats Academy of Toronto charity fundraiser function, where he attempted to make a hip-hop beat. I can’t say for sure, but I imagine this is what witnessing Pete Rock making “T.R.O.Y.” might have felt like. Can we get a Drake verse on this heat rock?

George Zimmerman has found his match. The former security guard, acquitted for the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, will go head-to-head versus DMX in a celebrity boxing match. Confirmed by TMZ, celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman reveals DMX was selected out of 15,000 applicants.

I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up,” said the rapper to TMZ earlier this month, if given the chance. A date, time, and location for the three-round fight will be announced at a press conference on Wednesday, February 12.

UPDATE: TMZ now reports that George Zimmerman and DMX’s boxing match isn’t official just yet. The fight is dependent on funding, and no contract or paper work has been signed by either party (thank God). We understand that a story like this creates an ethical dilemma, but there’s currently a petition going round to put a halt to the “celebrity” boxing match, which you can sign here.

UPDATE #2: Straight from the horses mouth: DMX finally speaks on the proposed “celebrity” boxing match. Interviewed by FOX in South Carolina, Earl Simmons says that he has yet to make his decision about the fight, but if he did agree to it, George Zimmerman’s earnings would have to go to charity. Despite boasting that he’ll “gladly beat the shit out him,” X clarifies that the fight is “not a done deal yet.” Let’s hope it stays that way.

george zimmerman kanye west boxing match

I don’t even know where to start with this, but here’s what we know so far. Last week it was reported that George Zimmerman had agreed to a celebrity (the term “celebrity” being used very loosely) boxing match. The racist, child murdering piece of shit former security guard was offered money to fight from boxing promoter Damon Feldman and, needless to say, the line for potential opponents was longer than people camping out for the Air Jordan Gamma Blue 11s.

The Game (as in the 6’5″, 240lbs former Blood gang member) and DMX (no introduction necessary) have both come forward hoping to get in the ring (or “beat the living fuck out him,” as X put it). But according to TMZ, it’s Kanye West who Zimmerman wants to fight. Promoters tell TMZ he wants to fight Ye because he attacks not only paparazzi, but “defenseless people.”

Reason #712 George Zimmerman should be rotting in a cell right now.

ice cube it was a good day

Aside from being Ice Cube’s highest-charting single in his career and a seminal West Coast hip-hop record, “It Was a Good Day” was also one of rap music’s biggest mysteries: when was Cube’s good day? Two years ago, stand-up comedian and skateboarder Donovan Strain appeared to have cracked the code, working out that January 20, 1992 was the date Cube rapped about on his smooth, summertime anthem. Yesterday, Strain sat down with Complex TV to walk us through his meticulous process (which he claims took 15 minutes on his iPhone).

Even though he denied basing “It Was a Good Day” off a specific date, Cube went along with the story. 22 years after supposedly celebrating his “good day,” Goodyear flew a blimp with the rapper’s name on it across South Central, Los Angeles yesterday. The lights may not have read “Ice Cube’s a pimp,” but the little stunt raised $25,000 for A Place Called Home, a non-profit organization which works to provide a safe, positive, family environment for at-risk youth.

dennis-rodman-vibe

I’m still scratching my head at this. On yet another diplomacy mission in North Korea, Dennis Rodman was interviewed this morning on CNN, and when asked about U.S. captive Kenneth Bae, the former NBA star went on a crazy rant. Other former NBA players on the trip include Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson Vin Baker and former Knick Charles D. Smith.

Things got ugly when CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked about Bae’s release.

“The one thing about politics, Kenneth Bae did one thing. If you understand — if you understand what Kenneth Bae did,” Rodman said. “Do you understand what he did? In this country?”

“What did he do?” Cuomo said. “you tell me.”

“You tell me,” Rodman said. “You tell me. Why is he held captive?”

In a more comedic response to last week’s Kanye West scream-a-thon on Shade 45, Sway Calloway is embracing the “YOU AIN’T GOT THE ANSWERS SWAY!” rant and turning into a profit, literally, by promoting his new “I Got The Answers” capsule collection.

The new t-shirt (available at his site), also came with a short intro statement from Sway, clearing the air about his relationship with Yeezy and saying that the two are known for having back-and-forth’s all the time. MTV also showed a variety of memes that were posted as a result of the interview, and the “first TV” he received from Kanye even flashed the infamous phrase across the screen.

IT AIN’T RALPH, THOUGH!

As part of his Real or Magic special on ABC last night, David Blaine wowed celebrities with his jaw-dropping stunts. In this clip, the Brooklyn native pierces his hand with an ice pick (amazingly, without bleeding!) before asking his volunteers — Kanye West, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, and Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul — to pull it out. Cue priceless reactions from some of our heroes.
