Chrissy Lampkin Arrested For Assault

Things do not look to good for reality star Chrissy Lampkin (VH1’s Mr and Mrs Jones). Chrissy’s temper may have landed her behind bars. According to reports Chrissy was placed under arrest early Sunday morning  for allegedly getting into a fight with a girl at a New Jersey bar.
According to TMZ:

Edgewater PD tells TMZ … Lampkin was popped around 2:30 AM for aggravated assault and disorderly conduct … we’re told it was bad enough that the victim required hospitalization.  She was bloodied and doctors had to stitch up the area above her eye.

This wasn’t pure theatrics … cameras were NOT rolling.

As for what started the fight … we’re told Chrissy got pissed that the alleged victim sat on the sofa she was sitting on and accidentally bumped into someone.  Sounds like self defense to us.

Lampkin was released a few hours later … after her fiance Jim Jones bailed her out.

We all can not forget Chrissy’s  run in with Kimbella. Check it out below

#QTNA: Do you think R Kelly is truly guilty of misconduct with minors?

Despite R. Kelly dropping his new  Black Panties album, he has been receiving backlash about his past. R Kelly opened the flood gates with the  #AskRKelly hashtag. Jaw dropping details about several lawsuits with misconduct with minors began to surface.

The Village Voice reports:

The next day at the Sun-Times, we got this anonymous fax — we didn’t know where it came from. It said: R. Kelly’s been under investigation for two years by the sex-crimes unit of the Chicago police. And I threw it on the corner of my desk. I thought: “player-hater.” Now, from the beginning, there were rumors that Kelly likes them young. And there’d been this Aaliyah thing — Vibe printed, without much commentary and no reporting, the marriage certificate. Kelly or someone had falsified her age as 18. There was that. So all this is floating in the air. This fax arrives and I think, “Oh, this is somebody playing with this.” But there was something that nagged at me as a reporter. There were specific names, specific dates, and those great, long Polish cop names. And you’re not going to make that crap up. So I went to the city desk and I asked, “What do we do with this?” They said Abdon Pallasch is the courts reporter, why don’t you two look into it and see if there’s anything there? And it turns out there had been lawsuits that had been filed that had never been reported.

When you cover the courts in Chicago or any city, you go twice a day and you go through the bin of cases that have been filed and every once in a while Michael Jordan’s been sued or someone went bankrupt and it’s this sexy story and you pull it out. These suits had been filed at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Ain’t no reporter working at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve, and they flew under the radar. So we had these lawsuits that were explosive and we didn’t understand why nobody had reported them. 

 The saddest fact I’ve learned is: Nobody matters less to our society than young black women. Nobody. They have any complaint about the way they are treated: they are “bitches, hos, and gold diggers,” plain and simple. Kelly never misbehaved with a single white girl who sued him or that we know of. 

Answer our poll question below. Do you think R Kelly is guilty?

Yoncé – Beyoncé [VIDEO]

Beyoncé just does not stop. She releases her latest video Yoncé. Beyoncé bares all and flaunts her sex
sexy curves while twerking. If you look close enough she even flashes her underboob. Beyoncé gives her fans some true sex appeal. Body Licks, twerking, grinding and more can be caught through out Yoncé.

Filming this video was very interesting, director Ricky Saiz shares five fun facts about the video. Check them out below. Click play and leave us your thoughts about the video.

Beyonce plays somewhat of a madam in the video 

I think this is really straight-forward. I wanted to strip down any concrete narrative and wanted it to be more about the girls, doing the performance with Beyoncé taking a backseat as a kind of madam character.

Beyonce wanted all black models for the video 

Beyoncé wanted to push that angle — that was her request and concept initially. I think any time you can promote a sense of community and unity and that is natural, you should. All the girls are friends and it was so friendly and there was no ego on set. Everyone was so happy to be there. The girls were incredible. What a great cast. It was spontaneous and not at all contrived.

The Lick was Joan Smalls’ idea

We were going through takes and it was her and Joan and they were close. And Joan went for the lick and we got it.

Beyonce never sings in the video 

Beyoncé actually never sings in the video. She almost plays like a madam character and the girls are doing the performing for her in a sense. I think they are so important individually and have their own characters and they each really brought that to the set… [It’s] almost like this just happened and we were there with our cameras.

The video was influenced by Madonna and 90′s eroticism 

I wanted to do something sexy and provocative, but not so overt. I feel like the Mileys and the Rihannas have that covered and this was more sophisticated. There are a lot of references to nineties eroticism and Madonna videos. We shot it against one wall for the most part, so I was looking a lot of Carlo Molino photos.
