When will Skate Board P come out the closet? The world will be more than happy if he just admits that’s he’s gay. Last night (May 11th) Skate Board P and his bandmates were spotted at Victoria’s Secret “What Is Sexy?” party, celebrating the 2010 Bombshell Edition list, wanted “Hot-N-Fun.” In the pictures below, Pharrell is seen walking the pink carpet looking very homo in a rainbow monogrammed Louis Vuitton backpack .
According to Village Voice, Cash Money/Young Money rapper Lil Wayne has been caught with unauthorized contraband.
Corrections sources are telling the Voice that rapper Lil Wayne was caught today at Rikers in possession of “unauthorized earphones and a charger” during a search. An investigation is underway to find the missing device (almost certainly an iPod or other kind of MP3 player) that goes with the headphones. (Update: They found it. The MP3 player was discovered in the cell of another inmate in the unit. And, in a kind of tragic detail, it turns out Lil Wayne had hidden the original contraband–the charger and headphones–in a snack bag in the garbage can of his cell.) He’s being charged with an infraction–possession of contraband, says our source. Inmates are allowed to purchase an AM/FM player and earphones from the commissary, but what Wayne had wasn’t authorized. Before you yawn, realize that everyone in Rikers–even the celebrities–is forbidden to possess any form of non-sanctioned mobile electronics, whether cell phones, videogames, or otherwise, and the fact that Lil Wayne was found with an iPod in his cell means that someone had to smuggle it into him.
Whether it was a guard or a visitor is unknown as yet, but either would constitute a serious security breach. (Already, just a few weeks into Wayne’s year and a day term on weapons charges, a Rikers guard was fired for allegedly spying on the rapper.) Ironically, before Wayne went behind bars, the rapper told Rolling Stone that he planned to keep working while in prison: “I’ll have an iPod, and I’ll make sure they keep sending me beats.” Guess the lack of one turned out to be more a burden than he could bear–no surprise for a guy who recorded at all hours of the day and night back when he was a free man.

As I reported months ago, singer Alicia Keys and her boyfriend, producer/rapper Swizz Beatz are expecting their first child together. As of press, no word on if they are having a boy or girl, but Alicia is still in her first trimester of pregnancy. Alicia and Swizz are expected to tie the knot this summer in Dubai or France.
The homie C. Breezy was spotted in Hollywood wearing a pair of Gucci Aviator sunglasses ($220), a pair of red Bape Apesta Hi Duck sneakers ($145) with a light blue Levi’s denim jacket and cargo shorts. Chris has always been sick with the fashion. Shout-out to the boy C. Breezy.

As I previously reported, ATL Rapper Gucci Mane was released from Fulton County Jail today at 12:01 am after serving six months for violating his parole. Gooch was greeted by the press and his friend , ATL Shawty Lo, before thanking his fans.
Gooch then read a written statement where he admitted he had made some mistakes and has a new attitude.
“I have made some mistakes in my life that have hurt a lot of people who care about me. I have worked very hard to get past them, but those mistakes have brought me to where I am today, and they will not be repeated,” Gucci stated. “These past six months have been a difficult time but fortunately I have learned a great deal from my experience. I was able to do a great deal of soul-searching; I am coming back with a new attitude towards life.”
Gooch was not able to celebrate his Billboard’s Top 10 album The State vs. Radric Davis, because he was arrested about 3 weeks before it was released. Gooch now admits that he’s a role model.
“Unfortunately, my incarceration also came at a pivotal point in my career, just as my first major label album was dropping. I was forced to miss what should have been one of the proudest moments of my life,” he explained. “This is something I will make sure never happens again. My time in jail was trying, but I grew from it and am now a stronger and better person. I want to continue on a positive track and truly focus on being a role model to my fans and my community.”
