“I’m more than just a huge fan of Michael Jackson,” Lee said in a press statement. “Having the chance to actually know him and work with him, I deeply care about his legacy.”

Bad 25 was collaboratively created by Lee, as well as both the Jackson Estate and Sony Music, and is said to focus entirely on Jackson’s iconic album and the world tour that accompanied it.

He continued, “With this Bad project, I was able to uncover just what made this such a huge, important coming of age in his career and unearth compelling stories surrounding the making of the album, the long awaited follow-up to Thriller – the best selling album of all time – the short films and the tour that may have never seen the light of day.”

Spike Lee’s documentary comes just in time for the 25th anniversary of the Bad album, “which will also be celebrated with the September 18th release of Bad 25, a deluxe package featuring three CDs, two collectible booklets, and features the first-ever authorized DVD release of a concert from the record breaking “Bad” tour,” as reported by IndieWire.

Now that Nicole Murphy is raking in her own dough, she’s more than happy to ride around and spend it.  With her retired football player boyfriend Michael Strahan.  The two were spotted shopping and chillin’ around Malibu this weekend.

Nicole always looks great.

Also in L.A., Laker baller Ron Artest was spotted for the second time in one weekend with his artist turned girlfriend Shin Shin:

The two went out to Mr. Chow for some grub.  Dude looks like her daddy.

Also at Mr. Chow last night, Don Cheadle took his longtime girlfriend and mom of his two kids, Brigid Coulter, to dinner after his TCA event for his provocative show "House of Lies":

Don recently explained on "Chelsea Lately" why the twosome have chosen not to take the plunge and get married…after 20 years and 2 kids.  He also explained why he tends to call her his wife anyway:

"I say ‘wife’ because it’s just easier.  We have 2 daughters –17 and 15–and my daughter just went on a college tour.  I fee like if we’ve done this for 20 years and it aint broke, we’re not going to change anything."

He says Brigid is an actress and also designs homes.  As for how they managed to stay together so long, he said they’ve "been through some pretty major stuff."

Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Chris Brown Make Homophobic Comments About Frank Ocean?

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-07-2012

Drama just seems to follow Chris Brown everywhere he goes, doesn’t it? Breezy is in the headlines again today for making what some have reported to be homophobic comments about Frank Ocean. While in Cannes, France over the weekend, a paparazzi asked him his thoughts on Ocean coming out of the closet. Brown responded with, “Man, no homo.” Those in Hip-Hop know that the catchphrase that is popular right now and is not meant to be homophobic.

Unfortunately for Brown, the international press has run with it, and linked his comments to his beef with Frank Ocean last year. If you guys remember, Brown and Ocean got into a Twitter beef when Brown gave Frank a back-handed compliment. Frank then went on to compare Breezy to Sisqo and Ike Turner. The beef quickly turned real when Ocean and members of Odd Future were reportedly chased down in a car by alleged members of Breezy’s camp.

Anyway, Brown responded on Twitter and clarified his feelings on Frank Ocean and his sexuality. Check out what he tweeted below:

“My opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is…love who you want to love,” Brown tweeted today. “It’s your decision. People stop searching for BS.”

The 23-year-old went on to chastise judgmental people on the social networking website.

“Everyone is so quick to point the wrong fingers at each other,” Brown tweeted. “Ask yourself…Am I doing everything I can to help the world?”

The singer told his close to 11 million followers about the importance of individuality.

“The world is so bent on social acceptance that we’ve forgotten what makes us special,” Brown tweeted. “Our individuality! #I’mdone #readabook.”

In related news, we are hearing rumors that Chris Brown may be receiving the pink slip from his record label RCA if his new album Fortune doesn’t live up to their expectations. According to a label insider, RCA is planning on “trimming the fat” from its label, which means underperforming artists will be getting the heav-hoe.

RCA inherited recent Grammy winner Chris Brown after they merged with Jive Records three years ago. They were intimidated by his “tarnished image,” but wanted to see if he could produce stellar album sales. Since the merger, Brown’s only record to go Gold was F.A.M.E., and his personal life continues to be an issue for the label.

The label is allegedly giving Breezy until the end of this summer to see if his new album, Fortune, does real numbers. If not, Breezy could find himself without a label home. Breezy’s new single, “Don’t Judge Me”, the fifth single from Fortune was released over the weekend. You can check out the track below:
