R&B singer Brandy cut short a gig in South Africa over the weekend after very few people showed up to watch her perform.

Female Celebrities That Have Not Given Into The Big Booty Craze

On Tuesday, Mediatakeout.com, released a video of Rihanna twerking--a dance that women perform to make their butts jiggle.  The singer doesn't le...

The Game
This week's The Game continues to pile on the drama for everyone involved, to the point where these once-beloved characters are becoming caricatures.

Malik is selling his huge mansion. Not because he's matured and realized he doesn't need it, but because it's another opportunity for him to be whinging and insisting there's nothing wrong with him. Now, this plot development would have made sense if it stood for something. But as we have to listen to "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday," it's hard to feel sympathetic for a guy who brought the situation on himself. We're suppose...
