Does marrying Beyonce mean no haircuts?

Jay-Z with Alex Rodriguez at tonight's Cavs-Magic playoff game

Jay-Z said it himself, "I got the hottest chick in the game wearing my chain," referring to Beyonce.

However, does that mean you don't have to get haircuts? 

This isn't the first time we've seen the Jigga man rockin' the "it's been months since I been in a barber chair" look. 

But cameras caught you at tonight's Cavs-Magic game in Cleveland and the hair was definitely NOT poppin.

Some would argue who cares because you're married to Beyonce.

But for the sake of the viewers at home, get a haircut.  It's only right.

We'll see if LeBron James gets his buddy Jay a ticket for game 6 in Orlando.

Jay-Z appeared this way at other events earlier this year including inauguration festivities and the Grammy Awards, pictured below.


Celebrities do some crazy things for attention or publicity, but this one might take the cake for being one of the most ridiculous.

Spectacular (pictured above) from the R&B group Pretty Ricky laid down a "questionable" challenge to some of his musical counterparts.

Not singing. Not rapping. Not dancing. But "grinding?" challenging other R&B/rap artists to see who can "grind" the best?

His list of challengers included R&B group Day26, rapper Bow Wow and crooners Trey Songz, Omarion and Chris Brown. What is he thinking!?

All of this was done to promote Pretty Ricky's new single "Tipsy."

My only hope is that Spectac was tipsy when he made this video.

Juelz Santana going to PROM??

Rapper Juelz Santana certainly didn't look like he was going to a prom and maybe he wasn't.

But he sure did pose for pictures at tonight's pre-prom 'Show Off' for Teaneck High School seniors in Teaneck, N.J.

The annual pre-prom 'Show Off' is hosted in the parking lot of Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck as an opportunity for students to feel like celebrities modeling their fancy dresses and stylish tuxes.

Only a metal barricade separates the students from the general public -- many who were videotaping and taking pictures with cameras and cell phones.

Juelz gladly posed for pictures and quickly walked around the 'Show Off' with this Teaneck High School senior. But then he was spotted leaving without her.

It turns out that the girl who he was walking around with was his niece, Charisma.

Nonetheless, Juelz had the crowd buzzing.

The last celebrity to appear at the Teaneck High School 'Show Off' was former student R&B singer, Mario.

SHOCKER: Lil' Kim kicked off Dancing With the Stars

Bye, bye to the "bionic booty" as the judges often referred to her.

Tonight, rapper Lil' Kim was sent packing on Dancing With the Stars, just a week shy of the semifinal round.  The news was received with boos that could be heard in the live studio audience as well as around the country on Facebook and Twitter.

"CLEARLY, you know im pissed, that bull riding cowboy can't put one foot in front of the other and he made it to the semi-finals," Sterling Staton wrote on Facebook tonight.

Keyonna Summers shared her displeasure.

"What???? It's a conspiracy," she wrote on Facebook. "The country dude with the cowboy hat should've been gone."

While Lil' Kim may not have been early favorite to go all the way, her weekly performances continuously wowed the judges and surprised America.

Personally, I was surprised to see her doing so well.  She made it to week 9!  I don't think anyone would have expected that!

If anyone should have been sent home, it should have been that stiff Cowboy Ty Murray. It's clear "America" got this one wrong. The 9-time rodeo champ should have definitely gotten the cowboy boot.

Tonight's elimination was probably one of the biggest upsets since Tamyra Gray was booted off American Idol in the first season.

Nonetheless, the Queen Bee should have nothing to be ashamed of. She was absolutely amazing.

Even though I have to question why the judges were constantly referring to her "bionic booty."  It seemed like they were doing it to make her less of a competitor. Yes, Lil' Kim has a reputation for being raunchy, but this time around she was about as watered-down as a cup of soda from Yankee Stadium.

As she gave her farewell she made reference to an important point that she brought a new audience to Dancing with the Stars saying that people who never watched the show before were watching it because she was on it.  True indeed! I could give you a whole laundry list a names.

Regarding the rest of the show -- I, like many others, will NOT be watching. After all, there aren't even any stars left. The rest the remaining four competitors are relative nobodies.

The season ends here for me and I'm sure I'm not alone.

Check out her last performance that ultimately led to her departure:

Late night booty slap

A booty slap was the last thing I expected to see when I stayed up last night to watch Keri Hilson and Kanye West perform "Knock You Down" on Late Night with David Letterman.

Kanye had already said the word, "bitch" in the performance. Although it's in the song I didn't expect to hear that on the show, but I guess anything goes on late night TV.

The biggest surprise came at the end when the always controversial Kanye gently slapped the booty of singer Keri Hilson.

It was definitely planned. Probably as planned as Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl when the infamous "'wardrobe malfunction" happened.

In my eyes, this "booty slap" was for this purpose -- so people would talk about it the next day.

Perhaps this is an effort to get people to start talking about Keri Hilson so her album can go platinum. I wouldn't really be surprised because it's clear that people will stoop very low to get success in this business.

Hilson's album -- In a Perfect World -- came out at the end of March and it's a really good debut album for the young singer from Atlanta.

Overall, the performance was pretty good. Keri could use a few lessons from Beyonce on giving more emotion in her performances, but she'll get better with time.
