Lil Wayne remains hospitalized after suffering two seizures earlier this week. As previously reported, TMZoriginally reported on Friday (March 15th) that Wayne was in critical condition in the ICU of Cedars Sinai in L.A. and had been put into a medically induced coma after going on an alleged sizzurp binge earlier this week. They also reported that he had been convulsing uncontrollably, breathing through tubes and was being "read his last rites."
According to CNN Online, Wayne's rep Kia Selby said that the rap superstar is "doing well" and denied that he was in medically induced coma. Sarah Cunningham, another Young Money rep, did confirm that Wayne did suffer another seizure.
Wayne himself tweeted, "I'm good everybody. Thanks for the prayers and love."
Although they have removed the story that said that Wayne was being "read his last rites" TMZ pretty much stuck to their original story, but said that Wayne is stabilizing.
As of Sunday night (March 17th), there hasn't been any official updates on Wayne's status.
The owners of W.i.P nightclub want Chris Brown and Drake to be responsible for paying for Tony Parker's injuries if he wins the lawsuit. According to TMZ.com, the NBA star was one of the several people who have claimed that they were injured in the June 2012 bottle throwing fight -- and he filed a $20 million suit against the club.
The owners of W.i.P filed their own docs last week in NYC saying that Tony's issues should be with Chris and Drake -- claiming that they are the ones who "contributed to, instigated, participated and/or engaged" in the fight. They added that they want any and all damages award to Tony to come from Chris and Drake.
The case is still pending.
Is Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame's beef real? On Friday night (March 15), Gucci allegedly tweeted, "Waka flacka flames officially dropped off brick squad 1017. Big Guwop say give me a offer fa this disloyal lil n*gga." Waka then replied, "Somebody tell Gucci Mane 2 SUCK A **CK."

Waka later took to Twitter to tell fans that the beef is indeed real. He wrote, "Dont let da media fool u. This sh*t real Shawty"
Several blogs are speculating that this is a publicity stunt, since Gucci dropped two mixtapes Trap Back 2 and East Atlanta Memphis.
Reports say that the beef may be over Selena Gomez, since rumors have swirled that Gucci had a thing with her on a move set, and Waka has feelings for her as well.

Michelle Obama is gracing the cover of Vogue‘s April 2013 issue. Shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz, the FLOTUS dons a a midnight-blue Reed Krakoff sleeveless dress and winning smile that’s become the face of our nation.
In the cover story, she discusses the importance of family. "Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole," she tells the fashion mag. "You know, we have small kids; they’re growing every day. But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, Our No. 1 priority is making sure that our family is whole."
Michelle also reveals what she has learned from her husband President Barack Obama who began his second term a few months ago. "Well, patience and calm I’m borrowing. Or trying to mirror. I’ve learned that from my husband, that sort of, you know, ability to not get too high or too low with changes and bumps in the road. . . to do more breathing in and just going with it. I’m learning that every day. And to the extent that I’ve made changes in my life, it’s just sort of stepping back and seeing a change not as something to guard against but as a wonderful addition. . . that can make life fun and unexpected."
I'm loving Nicki's transformation....check out a few things she told Elle:
On her "make-under":
"To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes—you know, nothing—I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes."
On being bullied as a child:
"I went through a lot of bullying early on. Girls made my life a living hell. We had come to America from a different country. My brother and I had accents. It was very tough. So I’ve always put up this wall—it was a self-defense mechanism growing up—because I was almost expecting people to attack me. And I still have it. It’s sad."
Her advice for women:
"My advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want—and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, Okay, I can’t play games with her. I have to do right by this woman. That’s what it’s all about."

BEYONCE COVERS 'SHAPE'
Beyonce is showing off her post baby body in the April 2013 issue of Shape Magazine. In an behind the scenes clip of the photo shoot, Bey said about losing 57 pounds after giving birth, "I didn't have a lot of time to lose the weight because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again. I'm not a person that is naturally very thin. I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape." She continued, "I would just say, everyone is not supposed to be the same. Be healthy and take care of yourself, but be happy with the beautiful things that make you you."
Tamar Braxton has confirmed that she and hubby Vince Herbert are expecting their first child together. The singer and Braxton Family Values star admitted the news on Good Morning America. She said, "I have a love on top. I'm pregnant."
So yes...she was lying when we were all speculating on her baby bump. I totally respect it though, a lot of women want to move safely into their 2nd trimester before announcement and maybe Tamar wanted to wait until Good Morning America to make the announcement.
Kandi Burruss has finally chosen to sue ex cast member and ex friend Kim Zolciak over the song "Tardy for the Party." According to Access Atlanta, Kandi is suing Kim for not compensating her for her work. The suit was filed on Tuesday (March 12th) in the United States District Court of the Northern District of Georgia, Burruss and co-writer Rodney Richards are seeking "damages for copyright infringement due to Defendants' unauthorized and unlawful licensing, distribution and sale of Plaintiffs' creative works, namely a sound recording embodying a performance of a musical composition entitled 'Tardy for the Party. ' "
The song -- which Kim's daughter Brielle gets songwriting credit, sold 102,00 copies. In the past, Kandi and Kim have had their disagreements about what Kandi was owed for doing the song. Kandi once said that she was paid only a one-time fee of $4,000. According to a Hollywood Reporter story in 2011, Burruss "didn't have an agreement in place concerning royalties but also because she handed over rights to Bravo." She added at the time: "I know Kim was new to the music industry so I don't feel like she was purposely trying to wrong me. I just think she was misinformed."
Kandi is also suing TuneCore, which distributes music to online retailers. RHOA castmate Phaedra Parks is representing Kandi.
Three 6 Mafia rapper DJ Paul is feeling the aftershock for carrying a taser around NYC last year ... TMZ has learned, he's been sentenced to community service following his weapon possession arrest.
As we reported, DJ Paul was stopped by NYPD officers back in October after leaving a restaurant with an open beer in his hand. According to police, Paul admitted he was carrying a taser at the time, so he was placed under arrest for misdemeanor possession of a weapon. He was also charged with carrying an open container.
Paul originally pled "not guilty" to the charges -- but today, the rapper struck a plea deal with prosecutors, agreeing to plead guilty to disorderly conduct instead.
He was sentenced to 21 hours of community service.

MANNIE FRESH SPEAKS ON THE POSSIBILITY OF A HOT BOYS REUNION
Mannie Fresh has opened up about the possibility of a Hot Boys reunion. He told Vlad TV that it all comes down to money. He said, "It might happen without me. You know what I'm saying? It would take a big, hot check for me to be there. That's all I'm telling you. Maybe he [Turk] got something in mind that he wants to do, but I'm curious to see how that plays out. Because from what I understand he has some issues with Cash Money...It's just more so of you just gotta pay people. It's not like it's a hard concept, like it can never happen or whatever. You've got rockers that go on stage and it'll be like, 'I hate you and I hate you. And I'll see your ass in Cincinnati tomorrow.' And what makes it all better is, 'You know what, I'm getting my money. You getting your money. We cool.' That's the whole bottom line."
Btw....anyone check out Baby's new face tatt that he tweeted out? It says 'Rich Gang' the title of YMCMB's upcoming compilation.
