The BV Newswire has exclusively learned that Ray-J is in the final stages of completing his memoir, tentatively titled ‘Sex Machine.’
The book, due out next spring via Karen Hunter Publishing/Pocket Books, will detail the hip-hop soul crooner’s rise to fame (as a chart-topping recording artist) and infamy (as the co-star of a no-holds-barred, hard-core adult video with alleged Hollywood socialite Kim Kardashian).
Tales of having sex with more than 1,100 women will definitely raise eyebrows for the 26-year-old heart-throb who has been romantically linked to Whitney Houston, Lil’ Kim and fellow author Karrine Steffans (a.k.a. Superhead).
Former pop superstar Brandy’s little brother will continue to prove he isn’t little anymore with his foray into the literary world.
Family affairs – including his sister’s fatal car crash – will also be documented, along with a full exploration of his sexual prowess dating all the way back to his first experience at age 10.
Ray J is really beyond a joke now. A mess.
ESSENCE.com: As you know there’s a lot of mystery surrounding your relationship with your husband, Daniel Smith, so let’s just go ahead and get that out of the way. Are you still married?
Solange Knowles: Well, I am no longer married, but I think it’s very important not to dish details. We are friends and we coparent our son. When he gets older I don’t want him to read anything about me saying anything about his father or vice versa. When there’s a child involved I think the less information given is best.
ESSENCE.com: Let’s address some of the rumors out there. Apparently, folks believe you left your husband for Lil Wayne. Is that true?
S.K.: (Laughs) That’s absolutely not true. Yes, we know each other but I absolutely did not leave my husband for him.
ESSENCE.com: There’s also been some buzz that you had cosmetic surgery—a nose job.
S.K.: (Laughs) Not true. I’ve heard that one, too. That one actually cracked me up. I mean if I got some surgery, I would wait until I’m older and pop out a couple more kids.
ESSENCE.com: So even if you had had cosmetic surgery, you wouldn’t be ashamed to admit it?
ESSENCE.com: What’s the craziest rumor you’ve heard about yourself?
S.K.: I think the craziest rumor was that my dad paid my son’s father $1 million to marry me. That was everywhere at one time, and that was really funny. I always joke that I wish we had it like that: “Here, take a million dollars, marry her…”
Considering the immense success of Soulja Boy’s debut single ‘Crank Dat’, it was always given that he’d have to follow-up with something good – if he wasn’t be a ‘one-hit wonder’. Though I don’t know if he’s managed to do so, ‘Soulja Girl’ is a decent attempt. I’m liking the song’s hook and the video serves it’s purpose as well. However, ‘that’ dance and the constant “Yooooouuuu’s” are getting tired real quick. The 17 year old’s album ‘SouljaBoyTellEm.com’ is in stores now.
What do you think of the video?
Supermodel Naomi Campbell is currently a contestant on the Italian version of ‘Dancing With The Stars’. Check out her performance on a recent episode of the show; I remember her appearance in Michael Jackson’s ‘In the Closet’ video all them years back, but I didn’t know she could move like this.
What do you think of Naomi’s performance?
Kanye West continued the along the promotional trail for his already Platinum selling album ‘Graduation’ – this time performing a mini-set on ‘Saturday Night Live’ this past week. Check out videos from Kanye’s appearance below:

The performances were great. That 106 & Park skit had me rolling lol.
R&B star Ciara made an appearance on the Tyra Banks show last week Friday. In typical ‘Tyra’ fashion, the ‘Promise’ singer was grilled on numerous issues including her rumored romance with 50 Cent and as well as her ‘tom-boy’ image. It was a real funny interview, which saw Ciara teaching Tyra ‘the dance’ from the ‘Get Up’ video.
