Nicki Minaj was billed as the header for New York radio station, Hot 97’s Summer Jam 2012 concert, but Nicki backed out of her performance after a radio host dissed her song "Starships." While hosting a pre-show festival, this guy reportedly said the warm-up performances featured "real hip hop" and fans shouldn’t expect to hear any "Starships." Clearly referring to Nicki's song, the comment was not well received by anyone in the Young Money camp. Lil Wayne immediately Tweeted, "Young Money ain’t doing Summer Jam." Nicki followed up with her own Tweets, "Wow. U ninjas just f**** up history. But the President has spoken." Some of her fans were confused whether or not she was not going to appear, so she set the record straight, "I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against Wayne’s word. What he says, goes." Do you think Nicki/Young Money over reacted?
Brian McKnight wrote and recorded an X-rated song about pleasing a woman called "If Ur Ready to Learn". Remember that? Well, it turns out that a porno site helped turn it into a hit, so Brian recorded an anthem specifically for the site. And it is ten times worse than the "If Ur Ready to Learn" one. Anyway, Brian's followers started giving him flak about his new hobby of writing X-rated songs, so he ended up bashing Chris Brown, R. Kelly and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. via Twitter, "Since everyone’s so opinionated I'm taking suggestions on what I should do next. I'm thinking rent a lambo and beat the s*** outta my girl. That's acceptable these days." That was an obvious reference to Chris. Then he went after R. Kelly, "Or maybe have sex with a 14 year old girl and film it that’s acceptable these days." And here's his jab at Mayweather, "Or let the court system let me make 35 million before I do my 87 days in a private cell for domestic abuse that's acceptable these days." Floyd just turned himself in to do his 87 days on Friday. Brian claimed he wasn't starting beef, but Chris Brown wasn't buying it, "I see how this works now. When people's careers get to the 'nobody cares' stage they use my name for publicity! lol! I can't keep helping these old ninjas. It's a miracle the way I'm bringing the dead alive!”
Drew Barrymore got married Saturday at her home in Montecito, California. About 200 guests attended the Jewish ceremony, which was officiated by a family Rabbi. Drew's new husband is Will Kopelman and she is currently pregnant with Will's baby. Celebrity guests included Cameron Diaz, Jimmy Fallon and his wife Nancy, who is Drew's production partner. Reese Witherspoon and her husband were there, too, plus Busy Philipps from "Cougar Town". This is actually Drew's third marriage, and it doesn't have to last too long to be her longest. Drew was married to a bar owner named Jeremy Thomas for less than two months in 1994. In 2002, she married Tom Green, and stuck that one out for five months!
The MTV Movie Awards went down last night. Russell Brand hosted and made fun of the usual suspects. He busted on Charlie Sheen and his failed marriage to Katy Perry, among other things. Johnny Depp received the "Generation Award." Robert Pattinson wasn't there, so Kristen Stewart had to accept their award for Best Kiss by herself. She tried to get Taylor Lautner, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron to jump up onstage and take Rob's place, but no one bit. So she had to kind of awkwardly go it alone.
"Magic Mike" co-stars Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello presented Elizabeth Banks with the Best Transformation award for "The Hunger Games". And there was dry-humping.

They showed some cool new footage from "The Dark Knight Returns".
Oh, and some people won awards, too. "Hunger Games"and "Twilight", mostly. HERE is the list.
