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.

EMPIRE STATE OF MIND


It's no secret that Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter is at the top of his game. Earlier this week, the 'Forever Young' rapper announced that he'd be launching a line of headphones, a la Lady Gaga, later this year. Now, comes news that Beyonce's hubby is chummy with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The two men, along with developer Bruce Ratner and New Jersey Nets majority owner Mikhail Prokhorov, visited Gracie Mansion on May 19 to discuss their basketball team, which is headed to Jay's hometown of Brooklyn. Prokhorov, the first foreigner to own an NBA team, said he's hiring a new coach and new players in an effort to get the team to the playoffs next season and to win a championship in five years. The Brooklyn arena is going to be called the Barkley Center and is currently under construction and set to open for the 2012 season. [Rap Radar]

SHAQ'S NEW BOO


While Shaunie and her new boy toy have been hitting the luxury resorts of Hawaii, her soon-to-be ex-husband, Shaquille O'Neal, has been boo'd up with a lady friend of his own. According to the New York Daily News, the Cleveland Cavalier center is dating former Sony Music executive Lisa Ellis. A few months back, various sources claimed that Ellis and her former client Wyclef Jean were having an affair, however it looks like Shaq is the real apple of her eye. Insiders say the two have been secretly seeing each other since the O'Neals headed to divorce court. Ellis previously dated former Congressman Harold Ford. [NY Daily News]

PRETTY SKETCHY

The boys of Pretty Ricky are continuously fighting rumors of homosexuality. Group member Spectacular was accused of being gay after he put up a striptease video on YouTube. Now one of the group's quieter members, Slickem, has a picture on the Web of him with another boy's head in his lap (while on a couch with no shirt or clothes on). The photo leaves a lot to the imagination for his fans. Slickem has yet to justify what the pic is all about. [Bossip]

HARD OUT HERE FOR A PIMP

Guess Terrence Howard was tired of his playboy lifestyle. It's hard to keep Hollywood weddings under wraps, but Howard was able to tie the knot in a small ceremony with commercial production worker Michelle Ghent-Howard this past January. Howard, who previously split from his ex-wife, Lori McComma in 2005, is busy promoting his new movie 'Winnie' in which he plays Nelson Mandela, opposite Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson. Howard told CNN's Anderson Cooper during an interview at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday that he was a married man again. "To come here and be with my wife, it's the best feeling in the world," he said while promoting 'Winnie' in Cannes. His wife is of Asian descent and 33 years old. Howard has three children from his previous marriage to McComma. [US Magazine]

NOSE JOB GONE WRONG

'Real Housewives of Atlanta's' NeNe Leakes is rumored to have had a little cosmetic surgery recently. The Bravo reality television star arrived at her co-star Sheree Whitfield's 'Dance With the Stars' event sporting what looks like a new nose. The new nose is much slimmer than her first one, but already the Internet is up in arms that it isn't a good nose job. There's also talk that she's gotten some other work done. Either way, NeNe's new haircut is bangin'. That's something she can still say "BAM" about. [YBF]
