Take a Moment to Soak In All of Jennifer Lopez's Glow in These Makeup-Free Selfies

Once upon a time, Jennifer Lopez came out with a remix for her single "I'm Real," where rapper Ja Rule praised her for "The way [she] looked, [her] style, [her] hair."

The ongoing feud between 50 Cent and Ja Rule has reached new heights with the rapper claiming to have used a GroupOn to buy 200 tickets to an upcoming Ja Rule concert to keep the seats empty.  “I just bought 200 seats in the front so they can be empty.

Fyre Fallout: How Much Prison Time — and Debt — Is Festival Founder Billy McFarland Really Looking At?

Billy McFarland, the promoter behind last year’s disastrous Fyre Festival, accepted a $26 million forfeiture as part of his plea deal for defrauding investors, and he faces as much as 40 years in prison. But in reality, those numbers are almost as inflated as his promises about the festival. There’s little likelihood that the injured […]

Ja Rule Is 41 and Setting Thirst Traps on Instagram for Likes and….It’s Working

In many ways, time has not been kind to Ja Rule at all. His music career has dried up, shriveled up and disappeared completely. His entrepreneurial reinvention and makeover went completely bust when his Fyre Festival went bankrupt and had to cancel at the last minute. But one area where Ja remains “blessed and highly favored” is when it comes to his body. The Murda Inc. honcho uploaded a recent shirtless pic to his Instagram account that sent da ‘gram into a dizzying spell of “damn zaddy!” excla...
