A FAN GETS A “KICK” OUT OF MIGUEL’S BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARD PERFORMANCE……LITERALLY!!

miguelperformanceGif

Miguel‘s performance tonight during the 2013 Billboard Music Awards definitely left a mark for at least one fan.

The soulful singer was giving a great show while singing his hit “Adorn,” and even did a sexy little spin into the jazz splits, but when he attempted to do it again, he first decided to try and jump across the crowd, to the other side of the stage.

And, well, that didn’t work out too well.

Instead, he clipped an audience member along the way, when he accidentally kicked her down before landing (and boy does it look like it hurt). Luckily, no one was seriously injured, and the young girl, who was later seen icing her arm, was all smiles afterward.

“Got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay,” Miguel tweeted.

Well, there’s one move he knows never to try again.

SPOTTED @ ROLLINGOUT.COM

A fallen Kris Kross rapper and Hip-Hop trendsetter was laid to rest Thursday, May 9 while his family and friends looked on. Chris Kelly, 34, was funeralized in Atlanta, Georgia at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church. As previously reported Kelly passed away from a drug overdose.

Rollingout was on hand for the service and noted that the bereaving featured a number of celebrities. Attendees included Xscape singers LaTocha and Tamika Scott as well as So So Def founder Jermaine Dupri and his father Michael Mauldin. Both played pivotal roles in Chris Kelly’s musical career. The pair marched in with Kelly’s family, alongside his rap partner Chris Smith and DJ Nabs. Tiny Harris attended the funeral as well.

A grief stricken Da Brat was in attendance and refused to speak with the press. Keke Wyatt was also on hand and shared a few words with Rollingout about her first memory of Kelly. “‘Jump, Jump!’” said Wyatt. “I got in trouble for singing that [song].”

Wyatt later gave a soul stirring rendition of “His Eye Is On The Sparrow” after LaTocha and Tamika Scott sang an a capella gospel tribute for the rapper.

The service also featured reflections from several individuals closest to the rapper including Michael Mauldin and Kelly’s cousin LaToya Wise who shared a poem she’d written in his honor.

A pivotal moment came however when Chris Smith,  Kelly’s Kris Kross rap partner, struggled through a heartfelt speech.

“This morning when I woke up this peace came over me,” said Smith wiping tears from his eyes. “I knew that Chris is with our father in heaven.”

He then recounted his final performance with Kelly at the recent So So Def Reunion concert in Atlanta.

“Right before we go on, Chris runs over to my side and says, ‘stay focused.’ […] He didn’t sweat nothing, he wasn’t all anxious, he just walked to his side. That’s the Chris that I knew. He was a true friend, he wanted to see if I was alright.”

“I just wanna say I love you man and I love you dearly, ” he added. “I hope our legacy for Hip Hop is never forgotten. I’m gonna do my part to make sure Chris’ memory lives on.”

Kelly’s mother attended the funeral in a cream colored frock and was seen being comforted by her husband as the rapper’s casket was brought out.

Rick Ross got fired from Reebok…HE AIN’T EEIN KNOW!!!

Rick Ross will no longer serve as a spokesperson for Reebok. The Miami-based rapper faced criticism over lyrics he rapped on Rocko’s song “U.O.E.N.O.” On the song, Rick Ross rapped “Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it, I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.”

Rick Ross gave two apologies that some believed wasn’t sincere. He tweeted that the lyrics were interpreted as rape.
Several groups against female abuse protested Rick Ross and Reebok.

Reebok also believed that Rick Ross never put forth an effort to apologize for his discrepancy. On April 11, the shoe company released the statement “We are very disappointed (Ross) has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue.”

THE FAT LADY HAS SUNG!!! NENE LEAKES HAS INVITED KIM ZOLCIAK TO HER WEDDING…FIND OUT IF KIM ACCEPTED THE INVITE!!

VIA: THEYBF.COM

“RHOA” star Nene Leakes has big plans for her summer wedding to ex-husband Gregg Leakes.  During an exclusive interview with In Touch, “The New Normal” star announced plans to lose weight among the many deets.  “I will try to lose 10 pounds, but I don’t want to be a skinny-ass bride – I wanna be curvy!’ So what type of dress will she wear?  She told the mag, she’s “… ‘still interviewing designers. They’re sending me sketches.”

But Nene doesn’t have much time to lose the weight and pick the dress as the wedding is right around the corner!

 “We are going to have a big fantasy wedding, probably in Atlanta this summer. My granddaughter Bri’asia will be there. She can’t walk yet but we’ll pull her down the aisle!’

She also gave a little of the backstory about why she and Gregg divorced saying, “When I started living my dream, things changed. I started making more money than him. He’d say “You don’t need me anymore,” but I really did.”

But as Nene made waves in Hollywood on “Glee” and “The New Normal”, she and Gregg realized that they still loved each other.  So naturally…Gregg popped the question, for a second time!

“We were with our son – Gregg somehow got him out of the condo and had a big heart made of Hershey’s Kisses on the bed. It was sweet! I said yes right away.”  

And while Mrs. Leakes twice over hasn’t revealed if the wedding will play out as a big Bravo special, she did reveal that ALL of her tv castmates will be invited.

‘I will definitely invite every castmate from every show I’m on. I don’t know who’s available but they’re all on the list! RHOA’s Cynthia [Bailey] will be a bridesmaid. And Kim [Zolciak] will be invited as well.’

‘She’s invited to my wedding, and I believe she will come. I’m extending an olive branch.’

And Kim Zolciak recently confirmed to In Touch that she plans to attend the wedding saying!

“I have always been and I continue to be happy for NeNe, and I look forward to being invited to the wedding. NeNe and I started this journey together and although we have had our ups and downs, I am excited to get our friendship back on track.”

She added, “We were friends long before RHOA, and we will be friends long after RHOA if it’s up to me.”

The Vicks made it a date night as they partied it up with 49er’s QB Colin Kaepernick, Allen Iverson and T.I. & Tiny last night.  Check out the celebs having some fun inside…

Former Atlanta Falcon Michael Vick returned to Atlanta last night to party at Mansion Elan.  And he brought his wifeKijafa along with him.  The NFL baller recently cancelled his Finally Free autobiography book signings due to violent threats.  But he was all good with the clubgoers.  And the book tour is now back on–in a different way he says– as of yesterday.  He visited an ATL church to sign books, instead of the bookstore appearance in the city that was previously cancelled.

All the profits from Saturday’s signings were donated to a charity that works with young males serving time in detention centers.

IT’S ABOUT TIME!!! KANDI BURRUSS TELLS US WHY SHE IS NOT GOING TO THE SO SO DEF REUNION!! ALSO SAYS WHY SHE DOES NOT GET ALONG WITH REMAINING MEMBERS OF XSCAPE!!!

Kandi Burruss explains why she’s against an Xscape reunion

As a number of fans await this weekend’s So So Def Reunion, one of the famed members ofXscape is explaining why she won’t be hitting the stage. Kandi Burruss, who led the group in the ’90s, stopped by V-103 Wednesday to promote her “Kandi Koated Nights” U-Stream series. While there, however, Big Tigga asked if she would be willing to reunite with her former bandmates.

“I don’t think it’s just an issue with me and Tocha [Scott], it’s the whole group,” said Burruss. “I don’t really wanna have that conversation right now, I don’t wanna feel like ‘oh we’re talking because you want me to do something this week.’ Like if you really wanna fix the situation or have a real conversation then, OK.”

And when asked directly if there was any hope that she’d make a surprise appearance at the forthcoming show, Kandi politely stated that she’d be unavailable. “I have a prior engagement,” said Kandi. “I ‘m heading to Baton Rouge, [La.], I have to speak at a college. No, I will not be running back, I’m sorry. They don’t need me for the show, they’ve done the show without me before.”

Prior to Burruss shooting down reunion rumors, Xscape’s LaTocha Scott told Egypt Sherrod that she doesn’t understand Kandi’s reasoning and urged her to reconsider for the fans’ sake.

“The only unfinished business I can think of is the fact that we didn’t go onto the other albums that we were supposed to do. Other than that, I don’t understand where the unfinished business comes in at,” said Scott. “I don’t know what she’s talking about. I think we owe it to the fans, to the people. They put us all here … This whole 20 year reunion is big for me, but to say you’re not going to do it because you feel like we have unfinished business is … I don’t want to say it’s insulting to the fans, but it’s like come on, it’s not even about that. Let’s get out of self and let’s think about what we did for music.”

Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def reunion will take place Saturday, Feb. 23 at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre. Confirmed acts include Da Brat, Kriss Kross and Jagged Edge. There are also rumors that Mariah Carey will make a surprise appearance.
