Prince will be making a special guest appearance on the hilarious TV show “New Girl” starring Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson. He will be performing one of his hit songs at the end of the episode. The cast dishes that Prince is a very talented man not only in music but as an actor as well.  Zooey expected Prince to appear out of thin air like a supernatural god. But no he into rooms like a normal person.

Prince has allegedly dropped his 22 million dollars case, against bootleggers that recorded one of his concerts and put it on Facebook and other video sharing websites. Without Prince’s permission he opened a case and demanded at least 1 million dollars per bootlegger. After the case went public Prince dropped the charges because the anonymous fans took the videos down off of Facebook. No longer engaging in piracy, Prince has dropped the case, but he can reopen it at any time he wishes.

Will Smith and Jay Z are on their third collaboration before they even released one song together. Today (January 22nd) it is being reported that Jay Z and Will Smith are once again working together as executive producers of an upcoming electronic music comedy show on HBO.

According to Variety, the half an hour comedy show, “Higher” is  being developed by UK DJ phenom Calvin Harris and will be based on the inner workings of the electronic music scene. Harris, whom grossed $46 million last year, ranked higher than his executive producer, Jay Z.

In addition to Smith and Jay Z, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, Tyran Smith, Miguel Melendez, Mark Gillespie and Dean Wilson and Harris himself are also executive producing the upcoming comedy. This would mark Jay Z’s first attempt at working with a television show.

The Real Housewives of Atlant's Kenya Moore joined Arsenio Hall on the couch tonight and didn’t hold any punches when talking about her co-stars, Phaedra and Porsha.

When asked about the cheating rumors between her and Phaedra’s husband, Moore responded with, “Whatever woman would believe that lie, especially a woman that’s supposed to be an attorney, has to be the dumbest attorney I’ve ever seen in my life.”Moore also admits that, after passing up seven marriage proposals in her lifetime, she’s over needing a man to have a kid. She talks with Arsenio about considering IVF and scouting out sperm banks.

No one will be able to really see the event — only hear or read about it.  The White House didn’t allow any cell phones to Michelle Obama‘s birthday bash this past Saturday evening out of fear the photos would leak.
So great was the secrecy surrounding the party,” the Chicago Tribune reported, “that guests were handed an invitation — on their way out.”  Any of the guests who brought cell phones had to cough them up before entering the party.

Signs at the party told guests: No cellphones, no social media,” People magazine reported, citing anonymous sources. “Guests had been greeted by a ‘cellphone check’ table where they deposited their camera phones on arrival and it was understood that this was not an occasion for tweeting party photos or Facebooking details.” 

The White House wasn’t playing that. Outside of a few social media posts, there have been no photos posted of the birthday bash — taking the concept of an intimate engagement for celebrities and public figures to whole new level. Byron York, from Washington Examiner, says the Obamas probably just wanted some privacy for the first lady and birthday guests.

The White House felt photos of a champagne-soaked, star-studded party would be somewhat off-message. But the Obamas are well-off, accomplished people. They can have a big party if they want (and if they pay for it). Why hide it?” York asked. As reported, celebrity and political guests included Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Angela Bassett, Samuel L. Jackson,  Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Jennifer Hudson, Kal Penn, Vice President Joe Biden, Bill and Hillary Clinton and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Funnyman Eddie Murphy is not laughing at the aggravating situation he finds himself in with a young comedian named Brando Murphy.  You’re probably wondering if this Brando Murphy guy is related to Eddie? Well, that’s a very interesting question. In fact, it goes to the heart of the matter.  Young Mr. Murphy is basically passing himself off as Eddie’s son and Eddie is non-too pleased.

According to TMZ, Eddie’s lawyer fired off several threatening letters to Brando Murphy, claiming the comedian has told anyone who will listen that he’s Eddie’s son.  In one letter, Eddie’s lawyer, legal pit bull Marty Singer, threatens to sue him for millions if he doesn’t back off.  According to the letters, these are some of the things Brando has done:

Changed his last name to Murphy
– Performing with Richard Pryor’s son, Mason, in the “Sons of Comedy” tour.
– Showing up at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Eddie frequents and screaming, “My father won’t talk to me!”

But, get this. Brando ain’t scurred. Dude reportedly sent his own threatening letter to Eddie, insisting he’s never presented himself as Eddie’s son and calling Eddie’s accusations “vile, base, contemptible, miserable, wretched and loathsome.”  Brando says he’ll sue Eddie for defamation if he continues what he calls a campaign of intimidation.  If you wanna see what Brando Murphy can do with a mic and some jokes, check the video below.
