Lil B releases I Got AIDS
Making bold and controversial statements is nothing new for Lil B. He named his last album I’m Gay (I’m Happy) after all. Now the rapper has released a song called I Got AIDS.

Halloween brings out the freaks
It’s hard to say who had the best Halloween costume this year, but it’s pretty easy to say who had the worst. Gwen Stefani made a beautiful Cinderella, Beyoncé was an adorable honeybee and Jessica Simpson cleverly announced her pregnancy with her glam-mummy getup.
