Rumor has it, Kim and Kanye gave a false due date on purpose to throw off the media. Makes sense. They were bound to have a circus around them anyway, but the open revelation of a due date would have only added to that.

I can openly admit that up until now, I have not marched through the trenches with the rest of Rihanna Navy. Her radical behavior, though as carefree and radical as mine, wasn’t really appealing.

The Obama Effect? Beyonce Drops From Clint Eastwood Film!
10/10/2012 10:13:42 am by Beatscore 
According to Variety, Knowles was too busy to make the scheduling work — but A Star Is Born doesn’t have a start date or leading man cast yet, which makes some wonder if she dropped from the buzz worthy project because of Eastwood’s recent diss of her buddy Obama at the RNC. In case you missed it, Eastwood called Obama the “greatest hoax” in history, and used an empty chair to claim that Obama was an “invisible” president and even told “invisible Obama” to “shut up”! Whatever the reason, East... more...

I’m not buying into the faux foes that are Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj and neither is Queen Latifah. The Queen appeared on “Anderson Live” with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen and when asked about the girl on girl drama, Queen claimed that not only does she not buy into the fight, she doesn’t want to take sides.
