Today’s LOWDOWN for Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Bobby Brown SIT DOWN!! The Bad Boy of R&B is back to his ol’ tricks again. He was in court in Massachusetts yesterday to answer to some drug charges. That’s because Bobby was arrested last December outside of a hotel there. They found some ‘Yayo’ on him—that would be cocaine. I hear Bobby begged the officers not to charge him. No word yet on what authorities will do with him in court.

I know what they’re doing at TVT Records—firing just about everybody. The home of Lil’ Jon, Pitbull, Ying Yang Twins and more fired all but 15 staff on Monday and is expected to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy by the end of the week. The label does plan to continue to promote Pitbull’s and Ying Yangs singles.

If you think you’re the next big thang when it comes to writing, Ludacris is looking for you. I hear he’s launched a website to find talented songwriters. Go to

Meanwhile, T-Pain is going country!! He’s thinking about doing a song with country star Toby Keith. T-Pain says he sells a lot of records—he’s rich and he just wants to be friends with him. Look for T-Pain’s next project due sometime in September.

Look for Janet Jackson’s new album “Discipline” to drop next Tuesday. And to push it, she’ll take over ABC’s Good Morning America with a live performance and on MTV’s Total Request Live. It all goes down next Tuesday. Listen to win the CD on Illegal Mondays with Romeo & The Bad Boy Broadcast on 98.5 The Beat!

In rumors gone wild, I hear Kanye is adding to his family—supposedly he and his fiancé Alexis Phifer are expecting a baby. I hear she’s already started maternity shopping by the thousands.

Speaking of babies, Jennifer Lopez hasn’t even given birth to her twins yet and already the price tag for pictures of the babies are off da chain!! I hear “People” magazine is paying $6 million to sang rights to the photos. The magazine paid $4 million for photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s baby girl.

It’s baaaaack—“America’s Next Top Model” will be on and popping tonight with 14 wannabe models vying for the title. It’s Tyra Banks 10th season of the reality competition. The show is back in New York. Judge and legendary model Twiggy has been replaced with supermodel Paulina Porizkova. Look for “Top Model” to air 7 o’clock on the CW.
