Rapper, Ludacris Proposes and Gets Married in One Day

The traditional regimen of getting engaged and planning a wedding one to two years later, was the total opposite of what Ludacris had in mind.  He and Eudoxie Mbouguiengue, his long time girlfriend of 6 years, showed us that it can be done differently.

The rapper surprised Eudoxie with his proposal, while on a private jet and also gifted her with a white dress that would serve as her wedding gown that same day.  After tying the knot, close friends and family (including singers Monica and LeToya Luckett) met them and jetted off to Cost Rica for a group honeymoon.

What a way to solidify love! Kudos to Ludacris for thinking outside of the box and showing Eudoxie that she is your queen.  CONGRATS and MANY BLESSINGS!

Did Drake Go Too Far During His Latest Rant?

Drake

All of you know that I am a die-hard Drake fan and secretly believe that we will get married one day or at least have a very hot and steamy love affair.  However, putting my personal feelings aside, his latest rant not only gives off an heir of Kanye West-like behavior, but it seems a little misplaced and ill-timed.  Drake was slated to grace the cover of Rolling Stone, but the untimely death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman put those plans on hold, as the magazine paid homage to the late actor in their latest issue by giving him the cover.  Of course, Drake is entitled to feel “some type of way,” but come on; let’s at least be classy about our venting sessions.  The great rapper has also been accused of slamming Kanye West (how ironic) during his interview by calling some of his music “questionable”.

In true celebrity fashion, Drake hit the Tweet button and expressed his emotions by sending messages out for the world to read.  His tweets went something like this… “I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone.  They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue…I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil…I’m done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”

Drake was on a roll I guess because he also addressed the infamous Macklemore text that was sent to Kendrick Lamar after he was snubbed at the Grammy’s.  Drake stated, “I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message?  Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better – make better music…’ It felt cheap. It didn’t feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?…To name just Kendrick? That sh*t made me feel funny.  No, in that case, you robbed everybody.  We all need text messages!”

It will be interesting to see the unraveling that takes place after his interview is addressed by all parties involved or those effected by his words.  I can’t fault him for being honest, but I do believe that he could have used better judgement in bringing Hoffman into the rant.
