Word For Word - May 23, 2008

    "They've already agreed to give Beyonce a cameo appearance. But (we're) hoping that (she) could be written in for a recurring role, or possibly even a permanent one," -- says a source in Beyonce' Knowles camp, talking to MediaTakeOut.com, on her upcoming appearance on the tv hit "Desperate Housewives."

    "I've always had a weird thing about it (having kids) because my parents divorced when I was three and I didn't really have many examples of what was the norm."-- Mariah Carey on having kids.

    "It's just kind of poking fun at the fact that this queen image has prevailed for so long. It's having fun with it and saying I was out of the picture for a while but she's back." -- Donna Summer on her new LP entitled, "Crayons."

    "I don't know how good I'll be at it, but it's something that I want to try." -- Rihanna,the "Umbrella" hitmaker is reportedly set to star in upcoming film Mama Black Widow - the story of a black family's migration from the South in the 1930s.

    ''There was one perfect person, and they called him Jesus Christ,'' Chapman said. ''You have to ... realize that everyone is human, and you can err.'' --Dog "The Bounty Hunter."

    "It's a vicious rumour. And it's run amok." --Rod McCrew tells XXLmag.com about the condition of Nate Dogg who has been recovering at home since he was hospitalized in December.

    "I heard this CD in its entirety for the first time just days ago and was devastated. Riddled with grief over an album that was seemingly so carelessly orchestrated, I sat down with the president of Koch (records) to come to a decision on how to make the best of this situation. In another phase of my life and career, I would have dealt with this situation with litigation, but for the benefit of my fans and in the wake of the profound spiritual cleansing I recently underwent in prison, I made the decision to settle our creative differences amicably. My fans have waited seven years for an in-store release and deserve my very best." -- Foxy Brown tells Allhiphop.com about her new CD.
