Did Trey Songz Really Slap one of the Kardashians??



According to my sources, Rob Kardashian, Scott Disick and reality show crew were filming in the VIP section of London's MOVIDA nightclub. Trey and his entourage arrived into VIP and took over the joint.

When Trey and his company learned that there were video cameras recording just a few tables away, Trey went over and told them to "Get the fck out!" Apparently Rob thought Trey was joking and stood up, thats when Trey slapped his face off.

Kardashian and his crew quickly packed up shop and left the premises. 



Roy Jones Jr Set to Fight in June



Roy Jones Jr., the former pound-for-pound king who won titles in four weight classes from middleweight to heavyweight, will fight in the cruiserweight division at a contract weight of 185 pounds, the CEO of Jones’ promotional company told ESPN.com from Poland.
The one division Jones has never won a title in is cruiserweight. Now, even at 43, years past his best and having lost three of his last four fights (two by brutal knockout), Jones is fighting on in hopes of claiming a title in the division.
At a news conference on Wednesday in Lodz, Poland, Jones and Polish light heavyweight Dawid Kostecki announced that they will meet in a scheduled 10-round bout on June 30 Atlas Arena in Lodz.
John Wirt, the CEO of Jones’ promotional company, Square Ring, told ESPN.com, that he had hoped to finalize a fight between Jones and cruiserweight titlist Krzysztof Wlodarczyk of Poland, but Wlodarczyk was not available because he has a mandatory rematch due against Francisco Palacios.
So Wirt began working with Kostecki’s handlers a couple of weeks ago to put the fight with Jones together.
“Roy has set his goal to win the cruiserweight title. That is his new thing,” Wirt said. “He wants to win the cruiserweight title, and with Wlodarczyk not available right now because he has to fight Palacios again, he wanted to stay active. And now Poland has pay-per-view and Roy is a huge star here. His fights were all shown here for many, many years, so he is one of the few big American stars here. There’s a market here and Kostecki is a pretty big fighter here too. So this fight, knock on wood, should do very well on pay-per-view here. So that’s what we’re doing.”
Pay-per-view in Poland began in September with Vitali Klitschko’s heavyweight title defense against Polish contender Tomasz Adamek, the country’s biggest boxing star.
“If this fight does well on pay-per-view in Poland and Roy wins, and if Wlodarczyk beats Palacios again, there is a possibility we could come back here and Roy could challenge him for the title. His goal is to win the cruiserweight title. It’s the only belt he hasn’t won (from middleweight to heavyweight).”
Kostecki (39-1, 25 KOs), 30, who counts himself as a big Jones fan, has never faced a top opponent and is unknown outside of his country. The fight is taking place on June 30 because, according to Wirt, Kostecki faces a jail sentence shortly after the bout.
After Jones (55-8, 40 KOs) defeated John Ruiz to win a heavyweight title in 2003, becoming the first former middleweight champion to win a heavyweight title since Bob Fitzsimmons did it 106 years earlier, his career quickly went downhill.
Jones returned to light heavyweight — taking off nearly 20 pounds, much of it muscle — and struggled to a majority decision against Antonio Tarver in November 2003. In the rematch in May 2004, Tarver badly knocked Jones out in the second round.
Including the knockout loss to Tarver, Jones has gone 6-7 with four hard knockout losses in his past 13 fights. But he ended a three-fight losing streak in December with a 10-round unanimous decision against club fighter Max Alexander, a former participant on “The Contender” reality series.
One notable aspect of the fight is that Jones is going to fight in Poland when for years during his heyday, he never faced Poland’s Dariusz Michalczewski, who was widely regarded as the best light heavyweight in the world besides Jones. Michalczewski, who fought mostly in Germany, was undefeated and a match with Jones was talked about for years. But they never met, in part because Jones was unwilling to go overseas as he is now, and Michalczewski retired in 2005 (48-2, 38 knockouts) after losing his last two fights.

Scientists Make Huge Breast Cancer Breakthroughs


Scientists have made huge breast cancer breakthroughs including mapping 21 cancer codes and discovering how the disease evolves. These breakthroughs are critical for not only diagnosis of cancer but treating it as well. Read more below.
Scientists have mapped the complete genetic codes of 21 breast cancers and created a catalogue of the mutations that accumulate in breast cells, raising hopes that the disease may be able to be spotted earlier and treated more effectively in future.
The research, the first of its kind, untangles the genetic history of how cancer evolves, allowing scientists to identify mutational patterns that fuel the growth of breast tumours, and start to work out the processes behind them.
“These findings have implications for our understanding of how breast cancers develop over the decades before diagnosis in adults and might help to find possible targets for improved diagnosis or therapeutic intervention in the future,” said Mike Stratton, who led the research team.
Breast cancer kills more than 450,000 women a year worldwide and is the most common cancer among women, accounting for 16 percent of all cases, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
A study last year by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in the United States found that global breast cancer cases have more than doubled in just three decades, from 641,000 cases in 1980 to 1.6 million cases in 2010 – a pace that far exceeds global population growth.
“This is the first time we’ve been able to delve fully into breast cancer genomes in such a thorough way,” said Peter Campbell, head of cancer genetics and genomics at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge, where the studies were led.
The work had given scientists “a full panoramic view of the cancer genome” and helped them identify “mutational patterns rather than individual mutations in specific genes”, he added.
DNA MUTATIONS
“We’ve known for many years now that all cancers are due to abnormalities of DNA…that occur in every single cell of the body over the course of a lifetime,” said Stratton.
“But although we’ve known that, it’s remarkable how rudimentary our knowledge is about what the processes are that cause these abnormalities, these mutations in our DNA.”
Stratton’s team sequenced the genomes of the 21 breast cancers and catalogued all the mutations. They found five major processes that cause one letter of code to be changed to another letter. Genetic code comes in four DNA letters, A,C,G and T.
Stratton said one of the most exciting findings was that one of these processes is characterised by small pockets of massively mutated regions of the genome.
This sudden “storm” of mutations is often seen in breast cancers, he explained in an audio briefing.
While his team don’t fully understand the process behind these storms, they think it may be down to components of the cell whose normal function is to edit, or mutate, DNA.
“What we believe…is that sometimes in normal cells…this stops functioning properly and over-functions. It causes too many mutations and the accumulation of those mutations pushes the cell along the line to become cancer.”
The team found that these and other mutations accumulate in breast cells over many years, initially slowly, but picking up greater momentum as genetic damage builds up.
By the time the breast cancers are large enough to be diagnosed, they are made up of a number of genetically related families of cells, with one family dominating the cancer, Stratton explained.
Mark Walport, director of the Wellcome Trust which helped fund the work, said the results showed how scientists are starting to see the landscape of mutations in breast cancer “in something approaching its full complexity”.
“As this work continues, we can hope to understand how breast cancer develops and thus how it might be treated more effectively,” he said in a statement.

Will Smith slaps reporter who tried to kiss him


                                            
 Will Smith slapped a male TV reporter who tried to kiss him before              yesterday's Moscow premiere of Men in Black III.

A reporter from the Ukrainian television channel 1+1 approached Smith on the red carpet, put his hand on the actor's shoulder and tried to kiss him -- and it was all caught on tape.
Smith pushed him away and then slapped him lightly across the cheek with the back of his left hand. "He's lucky I didn't sucker punch him," said a laughing but surprised Smith.
TMZ reports that the reporter, Vitalii Sediuk, is known for his odd practice of kissing celebrities.

RIP Donna Summers



It has been reported that disco legend Donna Summer died this morning in Florida at the age of 63 after a battle with cancer. Summer achieved stardom with such singles as "I Feel Love," "Love to Love You Baby", "Last Dance", "Hot Stuff", and "She Works Hard for the Money". Sources tell TMZ that as of recently, Summer was finishing up a new album and attempting to keep the extent of her illness a secret.
Born LaDonna Andrea Gaines in Boston, Summer moved to Germany in the mid-70s. She began collaborating with producer Giorgio Moroder, resulting in such groundbreaking classics as "Love to Love You Baby" and "I Feel Love", which inspired generations of electronic music to come. In the late 70s and 80s, she scored mega pop hits with "Hot Stuff", "Bad Girls", "On the Radio", "She Works Hard for the Money", "This Time I Know It's for Real", and more. She won five Grammys, and was nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She continued to release albums and tour up until her death. Her last album was 2008'sCrayons.

Drake Reveals Doubts About Making Hip Hop In His Thirties


Drake surmises that he'll bow out of the Rap game before he hits middle age.

Much like Eminem and Lil Wayne before him, Drake has misgivings about rapping into his later years. And though Shady, who turns 40 in October of this year, has yet to hang up the mic, Drizzy sounds fairly certain that he will exit the Hip Hop game earlier than some of his fellow emcees.
In an interview with i-D Magazine, the Young Money emcee addressed the matter without putting an expiration date on anything.
The topic came out of a discussion about balancing relationships and making music. "I personally think that when I find that person and when it is established that we're gonna enter a serious relationship-I mean I don't even know if I'll still be making Rap music. I don't know how long I necessarily want to make Rap music for."
"You know, there are artists who are thirty-five and up that still make Rap and that still works for them," continued Drake. "I don't know if I want to be that guy. A lot of my music is about being young and figuring it all out. I don't know if I can still make my brand of music when I'm up there. Maybe I'll be just acting or whatever it is.
"I plan to make as much music as I can until a story from Drake doesn't impact you as it used to. I guess I'll find my way someone else."

T.I. Contemplating Retirement??


T.I. explains his problems with the Hip Hop game.

It's been over a decade since T.I. dropped his debut I'm Serious, and he's thinking about leaving the game. During an interview with Power 105's The Breakfast Club, Tip said that he's built a Hip Hop empire with Grand Hustle and that if his artists begin to outsell him, then he has good reason to exit the game.
"This is what everyone fails to realize. I want out. I want out, man," he said. "What the game is going to and what has evolved into from a personality standpoint, it goes against what I represent. What I embody, this game contradicts that. I want out. I’m in it because I love music and I have obligations, contractually."
Tip addressed how the content of music has changed over the years, and how a rapper can spit lyrics about a life they don't actually live and succeed. He says that if those artists begin to outsell him, then he has no problem ducking from the game.
"It was at one time, this music was about speaking to the people who felt like you feel. Now, the people I’m speaking to, they don’t necessarily feel like how I feel. In my day, if you were rapping about something you weren’t really living, that was a strike against you. You were held accountable. Nowadays, nobody even expects you to live up to the things you rap about. That goes against what I represent, what I stand for. So if they outsell me, then that’s just all the more better for me to fade to the back and cross my legs on my desk."
