About a "Girl" Who Refused to Just Shut up and Take Orders

You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

50 Cent, Usher to Share Their Stories on VH1

Comments (5)


While it may appear that VH1 is now the go-to cable network for reality series, the off-shoot of MTV is putting its focus back on to music later this year. Starting in September, music will make up 40 percent of the total programming.

Earlier this week, VH1 announced new shows, spin-offs and returning series at its upfront presentations for advertisers. Among the television programs announced were a few notable specials featuring some of today's celebrated music artists.

New episodes of the Emmy-nominated series 'Behind the Music' will begin airing in June. Usher, Jennifer Hudson, DMX, Eve and Jennifer Lopez are a few of the note-worthy artists who will be profiled on the show, which gives fans an inside look into the lives of these superstar performers.

'Get Rich or Die Tryin'' rapper 50 Cent will get his own 'Rock Doc,' called '50's Roots,' in which the music mogul will travel to the deep South in search of his family's slave lineage. 50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, will reunite with living family members and connect the dots on his ancestral heritage.

In December, 'VH1 Divas' will return and salute troops in a multiplatinum-artist tribute being produced with the USO. The female singers will perform songs from military bases around the world, in addition to becoming soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen for a day.

Christina Aguilera will kick off the new season of the intimate concert performance series 'VH1 Storytellers.' And the network's 2010 concert series, 'Friday Night Alright,' will resume with performances from Lady Gaga and Usher, to name a few.

Reality shows remain a big part of the network's identity.

As previously announced, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ocho Cinco will star in his own dating show. The 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant, like Flavor Flav and Ray J, will try his luck at finding a mate who can handle his superstar lifestyle. That series will premiere on July 11, the same day as the second season of 'The T.O. Show,' which follows Buffalo Bills football star Terrell Owens.

Additionally, in the spirit of VH1's new hit series 'Basketball Wives,' comes 'Football Wives,' a reality show following the women behind the men on the field. Another docuseries, 'Diary of a Hip Hop Girlfriend,' will share the stories of four women who have been associated with celebrity rappers. The eight-part series is being produced by Violator Management's Mona Scott.
