Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa
Amber Rose filed for divorce from Wiz Khalifa on Wednesday because she thinks he's been cheating on her for months, but he's not the only one who has reportedly strayed.

The rapper kicked off his tour in July, and Rose started suspecting he was hooking up with other women, a source told TMZ.com.

The model attempted to join her husband on tour but he reportedly shut her down, saying she should stay home with their one-year-old son Sebastian while he earned money for their family.

Meanwhile, Rose has recently been linked to Nick Cannon, who is in the process of divorcing Mariah Carey.

Wiz Khalifa Takes ‘Blacc Hollywood’ To The Top: This Week in Music

August 28th, 2014 7:45am EDT
Wiz Khalifa, 'Blacc Hollywood'
Wiz Khalifa has been high many times in his life – he’d probably say the same thing – but he’s never been #1 on the Billboard 200. This week, after two previous albums, Wiz Khalifa’s latest album Blacc Hollywood sold 90,000 copies, easily sufficient for #1. While Wiz had never debuted at the penthouse, both his previous albums actually moved more copies their first week. 2011 effort Rolling Papers sold a robust 197,000 copies, while 2012 LP O.N.I.F.C. sold 148,000. Each album by the kush lover has sold less. Still, Wiz should celebrate…then again maybe he should ease up on Mary Jane. ...

Fashion Fail: A Nearly Naked Amber Rose Wears Nothing But Chains
Sunday night may have been all about the Video Music Awards, but Amber Rose has landed our award for Worst Dressed on the red carpet.

Rose arrived with husband Wiz Khalifa, who didn't stay for the ceremony at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., as he was scheduled to play in nearby Irvine, arrived wearing a very tacky Laura Dewitt chain-link dress that covered, well, pretty much nothing.

The outfit was a throwback to the 1998 MTV VMAs, when actress Rose McGowan left nothing to the imagination in a see through mesh dress and a tiny g-string when she accompanied then boyfriend Marilyn Manson to...

Review: Wiz Khalifa Brings More Of The Same On ‘Blacc Hollywood’

August 20th, 2014 9:21am EDT
Wiz Khalifa, 'Blacc Hollywood'
If nothing else comes across on a Wiz Khalifa album, the MC’s love of weed does. It seems as if no Wiz song is a go without a reference to smoking. While the honesty is appreciated, it is often overplayed, growing tiresome album in and album out. On third album of note, Blacc Hollywood, weed definitely remains part of Wiz. His shallowness as an MC as well, dominates his latest album. Ultimately, Wiz Khalifa is who he is, and nothing more.

“Hope” opens Blacc Hollywood, featuring up and coming artist Ty Dolla $ign. Chevy Woods provides a lengthy intro before Wiz ever spits one bar. Ulti...

Megan Fox was ready to take on Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon in a game of celebrity Pictionary – it's just too bad she couldn't remember what a frog looks like.

Fox and Fallon were joined by Nick Cannon, who paired up with Fox, and Wiz Khalifa, who was on Jimmy's team. For the first drawing, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress had to draw the phrase "frog in your throat." While she was able to portray a throat, she claimed "I don't remember what they look like" when she had to draw a frog. It's too bad she didn't star in Teenage Mutant Ninja Frogs, then.

6 of Today’s Most One Dimensional Music Artists

November 3rd, 2013 2:00pm EST
John Mayer Paradise Valley
Some artists constantly change up their formula, while others are content.  There is nothing wrong with being content, but sometimes it puts your artistry into serious questioning.  There are many artists I could characterize as ‘one dimensional’, but I chose five who truly epitomize this description.  And yes, some of these are artists I highly respect and listen to.  I’m a meanie, I know.

India. Arie

I really do respect and enjoy India. Arie’s music, but I feel that she hasn’t truly ‘spread’ her wings for a couple of albums.  I’m all about “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but stil...

Progressive Themes To Keep Pop Music Fresh

July 25th, 2013 5:30pm EDT
Wiz Khalifa
The acceptance of formerly taboo themes in music serves as a contrast to music of the past.

An argument could be posed that musically, we live in a ‘post-innovative’ period.  What does  that big, fancy label mean in simple terms? It means that at least a majority of new musical ideas have already occurred and now music is basically in a period of recycling trends.  A generalization? To an extent, BUT after centuries of gargantuan innovation in music, it is certainly hard to invent something that somebody else hasn’t already done before.  I have a rebuttal to the argument though.
