I really hope people are as concerned about their own children as they seem to be concerned about the welfare of Will and Jada's kids.

Eleven year old Willow Smith created a internet firestorm when she tweeted an Instagram picture of herself with what appeared to be a tongue ring in her mouth.

Articles upon articles sprung up all over the place where people offered unsolicited advice as to how the Smiths were raising or in this case not raising their children.  Many pondered whether or not Will and Jada had given their children too much creative freedom and now this was the result of their lack of parenting.

Now nevermind none of these people live in the Smith household, but yet they think they have the authority to tell someone they don't even know how they should raise their kids.

So in order to calm down all the outrage over Tongue Ring-Gate, the mother of the other girl in the picture sent an email to to explain what was going on.

Here is a snippet of what she wrote:

“Those are not actual piercings, they are magnets, I know this because the other female in the photo is my daughter.”
Willow Smith then went on to confirmed what the mother said by writing, "It's fake...Sorry" under the Instagram photo.

Phew...catastrophe averted!!!!  Now the world can keep spinning and people can go on about their business now that we know Will and Jada did not allow their 11 year old daughter to get a tongue ring.

Rumors hit the internet yesterday that Pat Houston was not feeling Ray J. sitting next to her family during the Billboard Awards and forcefully tried to have him removed.  Well,'s Kevin Frazier caught up with Pat and she completely denied the rumors.

Here is how the story is being reported:’s Kevin Frazier spoke to Pat to tell her side of the story, and how the events transpired; since she was the one with the tickets to the seats surrounding this controversy.

Pat explained that she had possession of six tickets for seats near the front of the stage at the Billboard Music Awards Show. Sitting in those seats were, Bobbi Kristina, her boyfriend Nick, a friend and two seat-fillers. At some point, Ray J moved from his original location to an open seat near Bobbi Kristina.

The production staff saw Ray J move and asked him to please return to his original seat. We’re told Ray J refused. Hotel staff/security witnessed Ray J’s refusal and stepped-in to ask him to return to his seat. Ray J again reportedly refused. After multiple attempts to get Ray J to return to his seat with no success, the Las Vegas Police were called by production staff to remove Ray J. Upon their arrival, Pat Houston was made aware of the situation, and told her security to inform the Police to “Stand-down” and that as the ticket holder, she would allow Ray J to remain in the seat.

Pat did not want Ray J removed and says all claims are completely FALSE, telling us, “I’m a woman of order and dignity, I would have not had anything to do with that.”

We reached out to Ray J’s camp for comment. They stand by initial reports.
I don't know who to believe on this rumor.  Both parties are shady in my opinion, but if I had to choose a side I think I'm going to ride with Pat on this one.  I just find it hard to believe that production security and the police would have gotten involved if Ray J. had a ticket for his seat.  And honestly what has Ray J. done that would warrant him being up front at an award's show anyway?  It's normally the people who have some involvement in the show that gets to sit up front.  I'm just saying... 

So as much as it pains me, I'm going to side with Pat Houston.  I think she's telling the truth in this instance.

Lauryn Hill took to her website to write a letter and dispel the rumors that have been surrounding her relationship to one Rohan Marley. Here is what she wrote:

Mr. Marley and I have a long, complex history in which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning. To speculate without the facts can only cause people to form WRONG conclusions. We both value privacy and for that reason defend and preserve our right to it. Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child. We have long periods of separation over the years but our 5 children together remain a joy to both of us. Thank you for your concern and I appreciate all of the well wishes regarding the birth of my new son.

Until next time,

Ms. Hill

Now I'm even more confused because she said 5 children and not 6. I guess Rohan is not the father of this last child. Oh well, last time I checked it was her business and she's a grown woman. I don't care whose the father or her kids. I just want her to get focus and start creating music again.

Playboy boss Hugh Hefner has denied reports that he is dead and said the rumours were 'greatly exaggerated'..

There were recent rumours on the Internet that the 85-year-old had passed away after suffering a heart attack.

A story claimed Playboy magazine would be printed as usual after his death and a Playmate even spoke out about his life.

But soon after the story started to be picked up by several different news outlets, the Playboy founder took to his Twitter page to confirm he is still alive.

He wrote: 'The rumours of my death are, as Mark Twain observed in a similar situation, greatly exaggerated. I'm very much alive & kicking.'

And to prove how much alive he was, he added: 'I'm lying in bed next to Shera with a big smile on my face, reading tweets about my unexpected demise.'

Shera Bechard is his 24-year-old girlfriend.

Many confused tweeters sent messages about his apparent demise with @WolfesMother writing: 'Weird rumour doing the rounds...Hugh Hefner has gone to the big mansion in the sky?! Prob just a rumour, cause he's immortal right?!'
Moments after his 'death' was reported, the ageing lothario's name was a trending topic on Twitter.
