How ballers kill time at the Bet Hip Hop Awards....I won't ruin it for you, lol.
(oh yeah, headphones if you're at the J-O-B)
The other night Jimmy Kimmel spoofed Kanye's sit down with BBC 1 by having kids reenact the interview...
Needless to say....Kanye was not amused...
This is a reality for New York Page Six writer Stephanie Smith. After a playful challenge from her boyfriend, "You're 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring" Stephanie took him up on it, and decided to blog about her experience.

But here's where it gets messy, after reading her story on the New York Post's website, many readers expressed outrage that a man would make such a demand for his proposal. Others couldn't believe the lengths she went to just to stick to her plan. Check out an excerpt from the article.
Each morning, he would ask, “Honey, how long you have been awake?”
“About 15 minutes,” I’d reply.
“You’ve been up for 15 minutes and you haven’t made me a sandwich?”
..like No. 67, a scrambled egg, smoked salmon and chive creation that combined some of Eric’s favorite things to make up for my being 45 minutes late for dinner the night before.
Even after covering movie premieres or concerts for Page Six, I found myself stumbling into the kitchen to make Eric a sandwich while I still had on my high heels and party dress.
However, Stephanie describes how this is a journey they are sharing:
Making all of these sammies, I’ve learned how much Eric loves sharing cooking with me. He enjoys going to the grocery store with me, picking out ingredients and planning dinners. Though I still want to get engaged and get married and live happily ever after, I’ve also put less pressure on the race to the 300th sandwich and I’m enjoying the cooking experience with Eric.
At the end of the article we get a direct quote from Eric on what men really want:
“You women read all these magazines to get advice on how to keep a man, and it’s so easy,” ... “We’re not complex. Just do something nice for us. Like make a sandwich.”
Personally, I have to laugh at all the reader comments that call for her to leave her man to make his own sandwiches. If this experience brings them closer together and eventually lands them at the alter, congrats to them both. There is no clear cut way to navigate a successful relationship and I applaud their creativity.
DMX, talks to Dr. Phil about everything from his addiction, to his relationship with his kids and not having any regrets....think I'll set the DVR for this one.

Oh...to be fly on the wall in VIP...According to Oprah's IG, this pic was taken at Jimmy Iovine's party this weekend.
Speaking of Oprah...she recently spoke to Access Hollywood on almost having a nervous breakdown during OWN's struggling days:
"In the beginning, it was just sort of speeding and a kind of numbness and going from one thing to the next thing to the next thing. I will tell you when I realized that I thought, 'All right, if I don't calm down I'm gonna be in serious trouble.' I was in the middle of doing voiceovers, you know? And I remember closing my eyes in between each page because looking at the page and the words at the same time was too much stimulation for my brain."
"I mean, I wasn't ready to go run naked in the streets. Let's make that very clear. But I had reached a point where I just couldn't take in anymore stimulation. Ok? That's what I meant by that."
