P.Diddy scuffle With J.Cole At The VMA After Party

On Sunday night, P.Diddy and J. Cole went at it at the VMA after-party hosted by the entrepreneur and Jay-Z. The celebration was held at PH-D rooftop lounge in lower Manhattan, and was attended by top artists such as Pharell Williams, Rihanna, Drake, Justin Timberlake and J.Cole.

Drama started after J.Cole said somethings to Diddy and his girlfriend, Cassie, the NY Post reports. Whatever J. Cole said to Cassie, Diddy did not like it. Diddy got angry, and there were shoves as bottles ended up on the ground and partygoers were knocked over. “We were all dancing and the fight breaks out, and it happened so quickly and bottles were crashing everywhere, and everyone was screaming. People got pushed into bottles,” a guest told the New York Daily News.

On Tuesday, P.Diddy took to Twitter to address the situation, saying that the altercation was not physical, which various reports claimed. “I usually don’t address rumors but I got too much respect for my bro @JColeNC. We are friends. We just yell in public sometimes LOL #Fam,” he wrote.

But Jay-Z allegedly had to yell at the two artists and told them to stop fighting. “It was mayhem. Beyoncé was yelling to stop and Jay Z was separating people and getting people away from Bey,” another source said. Regardless of whether or not the fight became physical, it seems the two artists have moved on.

Beyoncé Cuts Her Hair and You Better Love It

Goodbye, flowing caramel-brown waves. Hello, peroxide-blond pixie cut. Beyoncé posted images of her new hairstyle on Instagram on Thursday, and she looks amazing, and everybody loves her. Loving Beyoncé is divine law, like loving thy neighbor, except so much easier. We adore not only the woman but everything she sings, doesn’t sing, says, does, touches, sheds impossible golden light upon, or otherwise ennobles with her presence. So, right, the hair. “Short, sweet, and pretty,” raved the Cut, a site actually named after Beyoncé’s latest move. “This is a mandatory haircut now,” Vulture announced. “Who Has the Best Short Hairstyle, Beyoncé or These Other People?” BuzzFeed asked, before concluding, in all caps, “STOP COMPARING BEYONCE TO ANYBODY ELSE BECAUSE SHE IS LITERALLY ON A WHOLE OTHER LEVEL.”

Watch Jay Z’s ‘Picasso Baby’ performance-art piece

20130808-151224.jpg

The cover for “Magna Carta… Holy Grail” by Jay Z, who turned “Picasso Baby,” a song on the album, into a piece of performance art last month.

Was it really a performance-art event, or just a glorified plug for his new album?

Probably some of both. In July, hip-hop monster Jay Z took over New York’s Pace Gallery for several hours to stage a marathon version of “Picasso Baby,” a single from his album “Magna Carta… Holy Grail” produced by Timbaland & J-Roc ,which was released last month.

The singer billed the gallery event as a performance-art piece, and the crowd included artist Marina Abramovic, director Judd Apatow and actors Alan Cumming, Rosie Perez and Taraji P.

Mark Romanek, a music-video veteran, fashioned a short documentary of the event, which ran on HBO last week. For art scene-sters who don’t subscribe to the premium cable channel, Jay Z has uploaded the short movie to YouTube.

“Piccaso Baby” riffs on the performer’s appetite for collecting art, including his desire for works by Jeff Koons, Mark Rothko and others.

Jay Z is going strong and still building his empire! Roc Nation!

What you think about this move Jay did?
