Around the Web: Foxy Brown Breaks Down, Bow Wow Tweets for Oral Sex, & Russell Finds a New Model

FOXY ON FOXY


While Nicki Minaj may be the hottest female MC on today's music scene, some have questioned the whereabouts of Foxy Brown and Lil Kim. Look no further, one of the two former rivals has resurfaced this week.

Brown made an appearance on BET's 'Mo'Nique' show, alongside the original Foxy Brown, Pam Grier, to discuss various topics, including her decision to take on Grier's iconic moniker.

"I love her so much, and I have always idolized [her]. She epitomizes what black women should stand for," she said. "Intelligence, beauty, strength, tenacity. I couldn't find a name and I was 14, 15 years old and Jay-Z and I was in the studio."

"We had this hit record and he says, 'What's your name gonna be,' and I didn't know what I to say. And I was always a fan of Pam so they were like why don't you be Coffee or Friday Foster or Sugarbaby, and I was like 'No, I have to be Foxy Brown, baby.' The one and only!" (Necole Bitchie)

HOLLYWOOD PLAYBOY

It appears actor-singer Jamie Foxx may hold the key to unlock the hearts of committed women around Hollywood. In the past, Foxx has been known to swindle an impromptu kiss from some of the industry's hottest women, including Academy Award-winner Halle Berry.

Now we can add Victoria Rowell to Foxx's growing list of victims.

Judging from recent photos taken of the two this week, the pictures may tell a different story.

As you can see, Foxx and Rowell have redefined the term "platonic friendship." However, before the rumors begin to spread, 'The Young and the Restless' actress is married to Atlanta artist Radcliffe Bailey. (Essence)

FLO-RIDING WITH A STRIPPER?

Although various sources stating that ring-tone chart topper Flo-Rida and R&B songstress Brandy are officially an item, the Miami rapper may have another chick to help comfort him during those hot South Beach nights.



According to popular celebrity gossip site Young, Black, & Fabulous, Flo (born Tramar Dillard) is rumored to be "cheating" on the 'Brokenhearted' singer with local Miami stripper, Laeann Amos (pictured above), who is also known for her hosting duties on the city's television show 'Access Vibe.'

Sources tell the site that Dillard has been dating the voluptuous dancer on the low for quite some time, in addition to requesting Amos during photo shoots because he feels more "comfortable" taking flicks around her.

I guess it's time for Brandy to invest in some "Apple Bottom jeans" and "boots with the fur"... (The YBF)

GOT "DOME"?

As of late, actor-rapper Bow Wow has been making his rounds in the media detailing his sexual preferences in the bedroom. The former protégé of Jermaine Dupri is featured in Ozone magazine's sixth annual "Sex Issue" in which he opens up to the idea of purchasing sex.

Now the pint-size MC is making headlines for allegedly requesting oral sex from a fan via Twitter.

The screen cap Tweet showed Bow Wow asking; "How much for some dome? How far are you from Richmond?" (Translation: Dome = Oral Sex)

According to Bow Wow, the screen shot is a fake Photoshop image.
"The Tweet that was posted was Photo-shopped," he revealed to AllHipHop.com. "Just recently I did an interview on how I never pay for sex, so I guess someone felt the need to write some bogus Tweet before my original Tweet."

"I have damn near 500,000 followers on Twitter. If I were to Tweet such foolishness, it would have been all over Twitter in a matter of seconds. I don't know why people feel the need to try to s**t on my name or what I represent. All I want to do is please my fans, make more millions, make sure my family is straight and have fun."

Hence, "All I want to do is please my fans." (All HipHop)

RUSSELL'S NEXT TOP MODEL

Who would've thought that yoga could attract beautiful women to men? Apparently, that's Russell Simmons' technique on keeping up with his stock of women.

It's no secret that Uncle Russ has a fetish for young, virile models and not to taint his rep, the mogul has found another flavor for this month, or should we say week?

The multitalented philanthropist was spotted out this week at New York's SESAC Awards with model Heidi Allende.

Sources stated the two were not afraid to hide their affection for one another.

Play on, playa! (Bossip)
