Slick Rick moved one step closer to putting constant threats of deportation behind him with his full and unconditional pardon Friday by New York Gov. David Paterson. The rapper, born Ricky Walters, was convicted of attempted murder in 1991 and spent over five years in prison. The 43-year-old faced numerous attempts to deport him, even though he has lived in the U.S. since he was a child. Rick spent over five years in prison after his 1991 conviction of attempted murder. Although he finished all of his probation requirements, he kept facing threats of deportation by INS officials. He was arrested again in June 2002 by Immigration agents who stopped him after he returned to Miami from a weeklong Caribbean cruise, where he was a featured performer. The arrest stemmed from a 1997 Immigration and Naturalization Service warrant that had not been pursued earlier, and he spent 17 months in jail. In announcing the decision to pardon the artist, Paterson noted that Walters is now a rap artist and landlord in the Bronx who has not had any other criminal problems since his release from prison and has volunteered at youth outreach programs to counsel against violence.


According to a report, super stud and bad boy, Ray J was told in no uncertain terms to take his business elsewhere. The establishment telling him to get to packing was the Hyatt Regency in Washington, DC this past Saturday. Allegedly he was told to leave because hotel security found a stash of marijuana and a drug called “Boat” which TMZ says is “kinda like ecstasy.” Apparently Ray J got “busted” after he returned from partying and someone dropped a dime to hotel management. When hotel security went to his room they allegedly found all the weed and the “Boat” drug. Additionally, according to the report, Ray J acted a complete fool with the hotel, but eventually his own security stepped in and took him to another hotel, reportedly a Holiday Inn nearby.


Both Sean “Diddy” Combs and Tracey Edmonds are denying reports in a UK newspaper that they have been secretly dating. U.K.’s Daily Mail even quoted Edmonds as saying: “Diddy is the funniest man I ever met” and that she’s “so lucky to find someone so soon after Eddie.” She was also quoted as saying that Diddy is more of a man than Murphy, whom she broke up with in January. “Tracey Edmonds never uttered the words quoted in the [tabloid],” her rep tells People magazine in a statement calling the Daily Mail story “a complete fabrication.” A rep for Diddy tells E! News: “Sean is very single. He and Tracey have known each other for over 10 years.”


Chris Rock entered history books recently for performing before the largest comedy audience in UK history. The 43-year-old told jokes to a crowd of 15,900 fans at London’s O2 arena in the first of two shows back in January. Guinness World Records officials were on hand to ensure their rules were met, and the promoters announced the attempt had been successful after the show. The record was measured by the number of ticket stubs taken at the venue’s box office. Those who arrived late were not counted in the total. The previous record of 10,108 was set by British comic Lee Evans at Manchester’s MEN Arena in 2005.


An article in Monday’s New York Times points out various signs that Oprah Winfrey’s pop culture dominance is beginning to weaken. Writer Edward Wyatt notes: The average audience for “The Oprah Winfrey Show” has fallen nearly 7 percent this year, according to Nielsen Media Research — its third straight year of decline. “Oprah’s Big Give,” an ABC philanthropic reality show, beat every program on television except “American Idol” in its premiere week this winter, but steadily lost nearly one-third of its audience during the rest of its eight-week run, according to Nielsen. The circulation of O, The Oprah Magazine, has fallen by more than 10 percent in the last three years, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, and the magazine is now seeking a new editor in chief after the announced retirement of its longtime steward, Amy Gross.
And while Ms. Winfrey still displays a Midas touch when it comes to the endorsement of books and products, some of her latest picks have attracted criticism from longtime fans as she has strayed into new-age spiritualism and, perhaps more dangerously, politics. Her endorsement of the presidential bid of Senator Barack Obama appears to have alienated some of the middle-aged white women who make up the bulk of her television audience, many of whom support Senator Hillary Clinton.
