Bye Bye Two and a Half Men

Sometimes it's just not worth it to talk badly about your boss. Especially when you do it on a radio show and of all places TMZ!

Charlie Sheen blasted the creator saying "I violently hate Chaim Levine (Chuck Lorre's real name). He's a stupid stupid little man and a p*ssy punk that I'd never want to be like; that's me being polite."

The show was already on hold while Charlie Sheen underwent rehab in his home after a reported 36 hour cocaine bender in the company of several porn actresses. Sheen said, "All these guys told me to clean it up, well this is me cleaning it the f*ck up"

Sheen earns 1.25 million an episode. He ranted to TMZ "that piece of sh*t took money out of my pocket, my family's pocket, and most importantly my second family - my crew's pocket. You can tell him one thing {Lorre}. I own him"

Well Charlie, looks like the only thing you're going to own is something that comes in a glass pipe since CBS and Warner Bros. have officially decided to discontinue production of 'Two and Half Men'. I'm sure your families are proud!

TMZ recorded a live Ustream video of the actor at his home. I don't like calling names but uhm.... can you say "Crack head?"

Video: Birdman x Big Boy's Neighborhood

Birdman recently interviewed with LA radio personality legend Big Boy. He says some very interesting things about his money. Basically, he gets too much. This is where I am trying to be. Not as flamboyant though. He's definitely balling out.

Birdman claims to have received a check for $100,000,000...count em. ONE-HUNID-MILLI.

Oh, and as far as Jay? Baby says he has no beef with the fellow mogul. Even after Jay-Z's 'we spendin' baby money' sub-diss on Kanye West's "H.A.M." track. “I ain’t tripping--we spending Baby money," Baby said. "I don’t know how he feels, but I don’t have a problem.” check the video below. Thank us later.


New Music: Willow Smith's NEW SINGLE!!! - 21st Century Girl

Willow Smith smashed the latter of 2010 as she had grown women (and some men) whipping their hair back and forth, forcing her way into the hearts of millions. Today, on she's back with her 2nd single, "21st Century Girl," an up-tempo, pop jam off her upcoming Roc Nation debut.

The song is a girl and tween-friendly. It reminds me of a mini Ke$ha or something of the sort. It definitely shows off Willow's attitude and spunk.

Willow will officially debut the new track on this Tuesday’s episode of “Oprah.” Listen to "21st Century Girl" below and let us know what you think in the comment section. Is it as good as "Whip My Hair?"

Kid Cudi's New Ventures

Rapper Kid Cudi is making some MAJOR changes in his career, by changing his email address, phone numbers and record label.

Mr. Rager hit Twitter on yesterday, February 27th to reveal his record label Dream On has been shut down.

The rapper, who launched the label just two years ago with partners Emile Haynie and Patrick "Plain Pat" Reynolds, reported that he had a "different vision" for the label.

"Pat and Emile are doing their own thing, i wish them well. I have a diff vision, for music, for the world," Cudi tweeted of Dream On, which released the rapper's first two albums through G.O.O.D. Music/Universal Motown.

Man. This actually sucks. I thought this was like a dream team and they were working toward world domination.

Dream On released Cudi's critically acclaimed albums Man On the Moon: The End of Day and Man On the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager.

According to Kid Cudi, his new label will still be distributed through Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music imprint.

"I am still with GOOD music, with that being said im just changin my side of things up a bit. im just doing the right thing, i come from a different place. people lose sight of the mission. cant expect everyone to be built like me," Kid Cudi tweeted.

According to Kid Cudi, he has a name for the new label, but hasn't revealed it until he can lock the name in legally.

"This is a day to rejoice, this isnt bad news. things are gonna be so epic, im like a kid on xmas eve im so excited bout this new chapter."

Mmm hmm. Go for it Cudi.

#BigUps E! Television


The top 10 tweets on Academy Awards night

When big events occur, Twitter (and the likes, to be fair) go H.A.M.

Social network traffic soared during the Oscars last night. The Academy Awards might be "movie's biggest night," but it's also social media's.

Multitasking co-host James Franco tweeted from backstage.
Mark Ruffalo, nominated for best supporting actor in "The Kids Are All Right," even tweeted his acceptance speeches hours before the ceremony, listing his thank-you's since he didn't expect to win. LOL...

But Twitter is ultimately for the onlookers, outsiders and comedians. Like me and you. The Associated Press composed a list of 10 of the best Oscar tweets from Sunday night. You should have a seat...

— "Is it me or does it look like James Franco would cut his arm off to get out of hosting the Oscars?" — comedian Kevin Nealon

— "Watching the Oscars. Not crazy about the womb Natalie Portman's baby chose to wear." — late-night host Conan O'Brien

— "I might switch over to the Puppy Bowl." — comedian Rob Huebel

— "And now, Gwyneth Paltrow, in a tribute to the saying 'Don't Quit Your Day Job.'" — comedian Andy Borowitz

— "What I've learned so far watching the Oscars: I need to buy nicer envelopes." — "Late Night" writer Steve Young.

— "Please have the baby right now, Natalie." — comedian Michael Ian Black.

— "No African American nominees? If you're black and want to make it on Hollywood this year, you better be a swan." — TV host Bill Maher.

— "Daniel Day Lewis has the depth of commitment to the craft of acting to die just to liven up next year's death montage." — comedian Patton Oswalt

— "This night will be a waste if Anne Hathaway and James Franco don't do their hilarious 'Who's On Firth" bit.' — "Late Night" writer Paul Masella

— "Stay tuned for the official Republican rebuttal to the Oscars shortly after the show." — Satirical newspaper the Onion.

EVO Fighting Championships Philly Addition

Greetings Everyone, Although your local game head did not make the EVO Fighting game tournament this past weekend, I was still excited for it. Congratulations to those gamers who took part and to the ones who came home victorious. In honor of all Fighting games, I felt it was necessary to share with you all quite possibly one of the greatest video game moments ever.

Behold the Battle of two of the greatest fighting game players ever. Justin Wong (Chun Li) and Daigo (Ken). Anyone who is a true fan of fighting games has to truly appreciate the Round 3 victory Daigo achieved. 2004 was a great year everyone.

Good Gaming Everyone

Mortal Kombat Banned in Australia

When games are released now, they are submitted to review boards that assign appropriate ratings to them based on their content. Well WB games, the new owners of the Mortal Kombat Franchise, received some disturbing news today on Mortal Kombat. Due to the excessive gory and violence of the game, it has been banned in Australia. Now this is bad news for gamers down under, but for gamers in other parts of the world, this will only fuel anticipation to play a game that got banned in another country. I for one have 2 copies preordered.

Just to get everyone excited again for the game and for Kratos on PS3, here is the trailer again

Thanks to ABC news for the story

PSP-3000 Drops to $129.99

That is right Fellow Gamers, for all those who have held out on getting a psp, they are now priced at $130 starting February 27th. At that price I will have to pick up a second for err umm, if you know about psp then you know what I will get a second for. But all that aside this puts Sony in a great position to gain some market before the NGP comes out and provides a cost effective alternative to the Nintendo DS, DSi, and DSiXL.

Thanks to Techland for the information

For the Naughty Adult Gamer

Video Game Makers Ubisoft(of the Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed fame) are currently developing a sexy game for Adults only.

The game called We Dare, is for the Wii and PS3 systems. This game puts players in some pretty erotic and suggestive situations. In these situations through use of the controller it gives players advice on how to perform certain moves in game and suggest they be performed immediately after the game is forgot about.

Though the U.S. ratings for video games on consoles stops at M for Mature, AO or Adults Only is supported outside of the country. So for those hoping for this one, looks like you will have to import.

Special Thanks to IGN for the information

Video: Lil' Kim - Carbon Copy


Lil Kim is dead serious. She has no intention on bringing a halt to her Nicki Minaj slander. Check out the latest attack, which comes in the form of a 15-minute series of video clips, cartoon images, radio interview rips, and comparison still shots.

The Black Friday promo is INSANE. Thanks Nicki. I don't think Kim has worked this hard since... ... ...

Sorry, I drew a blank.

UPDATE: Honestly, this video clip shows just how much Lil Kim has influenced Nicki Minaj's style...or at least her approach to the game. And for the record, I added this update because I accidentally made that statement out loud at the Team Headquarters and all I heard was "You need to add that! Add that!" - Ms. Parker, who, judging by the endless debate, might just serve as a Kim's legal representation.

Steve Stoute On The Grammy's With Gayle King

The Grammy Awards catch a lot heat. From industry insiders and outsiders. The prominent award's board and "behind-the-sceners" have been criticized for years over their picks. Steve Stoute was pissed and as some of you know, penned a letter to the New York Times the following Sunday. Check the letter in FULL after the JUMP.

He most recently took to The Gayle King Show to discuss the matter. For the audio...

NFL Franchise/Transition Tags

Yesterday wasn't just the NBA's trading deadline. It was the NFL's deadline for hanging a franchise or transition tag on a player as well. Here are all 14 of them. Tag! You're it!!


Kalil, Harris, and Woodley each signed a 1-year tender.

What's interesting is the Packers' best inside pass-rusher is not on the list. Jenkins has been quoted as saying he doesn't expect to return to the team.

NBA Trade Central: The Full Breakdown

Ok, it's a lot of shit going on in the league right now, being as though today at 3pm was the trade deadline.

In my attempt to cover all trade info, I'll probably lose my paying job...but nonetheless...HERE WE GO...

The first blockbuster was
The Melo deal that we reported on twice...and had been following since October.

Then, Chicago traded forward James Johnson to Toronto for the 2011 first-round draft pick Toronto acquired from Miami.

After that, or early yesterday afternoon, Sacramento traded Forward Carl Landry to New Orleans for Guard Marcus Thornton and cash considerations.

Then came the shocker. Deron Williams.
We already told you about that though...

Today, some serious exchanges unfolded...

The Los Angeles Clippers traded point guard Baron Davis and their 2011 first-round draft pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon.

Just before Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, the Boston Celtics agreed to ship center Kendrick Perkins and guard Nate Rob to the OKC Thunder for forward Jeff Green and big man Nenad Kristic, two league sources said.

The deal also gives the Thunder something for Green, who becomes a restricted free agent this summer. Green had rejected a contract extension offer from the Thunder earlier this year.

For the Celtics, they take a big risk that their lone big men -- Shaq, KG and Krstic -- can lead them. But with O'Neal out with an Achilles injury, this is an interesting play for a Celtics team trying to win a championship.

Green is a young talent who can play both the 3 and the 4 positions and could be part of a longer rebuilding strategy. Krstic is an offensive talent down low, but isn't known as a rebounder or a tough defender.

Check back for updates, as more details are revealed.


Toyota Recall!!!

Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 2.17 million vehicles in the United States to address accelerator pedals that could become entrapped in floor mats or jammed in carpeting.

More than half of the vehicles are being added to a massive 2009 recall that fixed gas pedals getting trapped in the floor mat.

Toyota has now recalled more than 14 million vehicles globally over safety problems since 2009. U.S. regulators said earlier this month that electronic flaws were not to blame for reports of sudden, unintended acceleration.

Calvin Klein Goes Digital

The Calvin Klein brand will roll out an amped up project in ck one, March 1, and it is predicted to be the brand's largest, most intricate digital initiative to date. It will be a global, multi-platform campaign that includes online, mobile, print, outdoor and plenty of social media. Sounds dope, and I'm sure you'll notice. The campaign is designed to transform ck one, previously the name of a line of unisex fragrances, into a global lifestyle brand that includes jeans, underwear and fragrances. It also aims to introduce a younger demographic to the ck one brand, which debuted in 1994. A ton has changed since then. The way we, the consumer, communicate with each other and interact with businesses in addition to the way we shop. reports the heart of the initiative will live on, where visitors will be able to explore the brand, shop its products and learn about the more than 30 cast members featured in the campaign. CK designed the website to be highly interactive, promoting consumer feedback and involvement with the project.
The company will invite users to contribute to the campaign by uploading their own videos to the site and and discussing the brand on-site and also off-site using Facebook, Twitter and other popular social networks (such as Ren Ren and Weibo, which are popular in China). The cast also will ask users questions.

The features in full will not be fully available, however, until March 1. A teaser for the initiative debuted yesterday on

Although Team Calvin Klein has used technology creatively for marketing purposes in past ventures, this campaign is designed from a completely different foundation. Users are connected to their networks and each other at every facet of the campaign. I see you shining CK...

So, I guess this is what we do now, huh? A player leaves "your" team and you find/buy his jersey and you burn it? Solid.

Well, y'all go right ahead and do that. I'm going to be over here...

LOL, at dude's commentary though. He's killing me.

NOTE: Melo will NOT be wearing No. 15 (Denver Nuggets) nor will he be wearing No. 22 (Oak Hill Academy). Both jersey numbers have been retired by Dick McGuire (15), elected to the Knicks Hall of Fame in 1993 and Dave DeBusschere (22), was also retired by the Knicks in 1983. So, we'll see...most likely by the day's end.


What If Your REAL Name Was "Facebook?"

While American parents (President Obama and his Better Half, First Lady Obama in particular) worry about their kids being on Facebook, Egyptian parents are actually naming their children “Facebook” to pay homage to the events surrounding the #Jan25 revolution.

According to Al-Ahram (one of the more popular newspapers in Egypt) a twenty-something Egyptian man has named his first born daughter “Facebook” in tribute to the role the social media service played in organizing the protests in Tahrir Square, and the surrounding areas.


A New Day

Man Names His Newborn Girl Facebook

A young man in his twenties wanted to express his gratitude about the victories the youth of 25th of January have achieved and chose to express it in the form of naming his firstborn girl “Facebook” Jamal Ibrahim (his name.) The girl’s family, friends, and neighbors in the Ibrahimya region gathered around the new born to express their continuing support for the revolution that started on Facebook. “Facebook” received many gifts from the youth who were overjoyed by her arrival and the new name. A name [Facebook] that shocked the entire world.

There are approximately five million Facebook users in Egypt. That totals more than any other country in the Middle East/North Africa region. The Facebook organization has reported an increase in Egyptian users in the past month, with 32,000 Facebook groups and 14,000 pages created in the two weeks after January 25th.

Facebook seems to be transforming into something more than a Social Network, it seems to be the representation of social liberation and expression. You really need proof? How about the main picture for this article, which to some might just look like some random graffiti, but in Cairo, it means much more. Imagine our ancestors spray painting a red line through the name "TOBY" at Grand Central Station or something like that. Or how about Google MENA (Middle East and North Africa) Marketing Executive Wael Ghonim, himself personally expressing his gratitude to Mark Zuckerberg on CNN. Yeah, I said Google and yeah, I said CNN.

The temporary military government has even begun using Facebook to reach out to the Egyptian youth, that's right on Facebook [

Who would have thought Facebook would have been capable of this? I mean, I knew there was power in words...that's why we started this? This is something new, and honestly, we should be afraid. We should be proud. We should feel empowered. And we should embrace the movement. Because that is exactly what the Internet and social networking has become. Are you ready to move with it?

More #POWERMOVES for 50

Rapper, businessman, controversial image...whatever you want to label dude...50 Cent is set to further his acting career in the Jessy Terrero-directed film Freelancers. Curtis will portray the son of a late New York Police Department officer welcomed by his father’s former partner. The film, written by Phillipe Cassius, is set to begin filming on March 28 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Mr. Jackson and his Hollywood imprint Cheetah Vision made serious headlines when they inked a $200 million partnership deal with Lionsgate Films. Freelancers is the second title in that 10-film deal. Setup, the first film under the Lionsgate deal, will star Bruce Willis and Ryan Philippe alongside 50. A few months back, 50 announced that he and Floyd Mayweather Jr. were set to launch another film company named Mayweather Productions.
