A few years ago, Keke Palmer was the fourth highest paid child star on television, and now she's making even more waves in the industry! Earlier today, it was announced that the 20-year-old media maven recently linked up with BET and Telepictures for a new show. And this time, she won't be acting. In the new series, tentatively titled "The KeKe Palmer Project," Keke will be following in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks, and Queen Latifah with her very own talk show aimed at young adults. She revealed in a statement: I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling. If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind as they are very uplifting to me. I started posting these quotes on my twitter page and the fans responded so positively! I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us. After her followers started saying that she should have her own show, Judge Mathis' company, Mathis Productions, reached out to make it happen. On her desire to be a talk show host, Keke revealed: I come from a very small, poor town just outside of the Chicago area and I know what it's like to dream and accomplish some of your goals, but I would never want to do a show where I am preaching to anyone because I do not like being preached at. I want to learn right along with my audience and every show will be a collaborative effort. I am so thankful to Debra Lee and everyone at the BET Network for providing me with this unique opportunity and platform. This is amazing! We need more positive young females on television that young women can look up to. I still miss 'Teen Summit' back in the day! When the show premieres in July, Keke will become the youngest talk show host in history. The title is currently held by Ricki Lake, who was 25 when she began her show.

Funnywoman Simone Shepherd has revealed that she's the woman who filed a police report against Mike Epps. More inside..... Previously, we told you that Sparkle star Mike Epps is being investigated for allegedly punching a woman in the face And now we know THAT woman is Simone Shepherd. TMZ reports that Simone (who's semi-famous for her Beyonce and "Basketball Wives" spoof videos) said that she and Mike's wife Mechelle got into a heated argument at Lucky Strike in Downtown L.A. (after the Haunted House 2 premiere). According to Simone, as Mike tried to separate them, he punched her in the face. Although cops called to the scene didn't see any visible scars, Simone posted a selfie of her swollen face and sent it out. Now...there are a lot of loose ends. As we piece together this story, we're wondering why Simone told the cops (and our own source) that she and Mike had a previous relationship...and dated? Mike and Mechelle have been married for eight years and were a couple for a very long time before that. It's not impossible, but it does leave some questions about possible side chick status....

French Montana linked up with Khloé Kardashian and has been spotted wining and dining her all over LA. Last night, the new couple were spotted leaving dinner at Crustacean, just hours before Khloé posted a poem to her Instagram: And in the end, we were all just humans drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokeness Khloé is currently getting over her breakup and pending divorce to Lamar Odom. Meanwhile, sources close to Trina have revealed that although she and French weren't officially boyfriend and girlfriend, they were living together in New Jersey and had been talking regularly up until a few weeks ago when he started working on his new album in LA. She's apparently devastated by the news that he's doing whatever he's doing with Khloé. Trina has hung out with Khloé's sister Kim quite a few times, but you know how Hollywood friendships are. You can't really tell what's real and what's for a photo opp. If it was real, this situation is way awkward.
The rumors of a crowd that lacked energy at Coachella were fueled even more as Nas continued his 20 year celebration Saturday night at the Coachella Music Festival. He performed Illmatic in its entirety and brought out Shawn Carter (10 minute mark) and Sean Combs (34:52 mark). Tough crowd.
Coachella brought out the good and the bad during OutKast's set last night. The good news is that after nearly a decade-long hiatus, the Hip-Hop legends FINALLY reunited Friday night as part of one of the world's biggest music festivals! And the entire musical event was especially special since April marks the 20th anniversary of the duo's debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik! Fans, stans and onlookers watched as André 3000 and Big Boi rocked the stage for 90 minutes, performing a collection of 27 of their hits spanning over five albums, including "B.O.B." ("Bombs Over Baghdad"), "Ms. Jackson," "So Fresh, So Clean" and a list of others. The group also performed some of their lesser-known, deep cuts, including, "Hootie Hoo," "Elevators" and "Skew It On The Bar-B." This was a real treat for TRUE OutKast fans! Not just fans of their commercial hits. The guys also performed their solo joints as well. Big Boi with "Shutterbugg," "GhettoMusick," and "Tightrope" with Janelle Monáe, as well as "The Way You Move," with Sleepy Brown, while André performed fan-favs "Prototype," "She Lives In My Lap," "Roses" and a few others. He also brought out fellow ATL artist Future for a performance of "Benz Friends (Watchutola)," a new track found on Future's upcoming Honest album. Now, here comes the bad: Due to scheduling, the group had to cut their set short by four songs and weren't finished by the scheduled end time of 1AM, so the organizers cut their mics. The crowd was also low-energy, and seemed partially uninterested which affected André 3000′s energy. He kept asking, "Y'all still here, are y'all alive??"Are you not entertained?" and "Are y'all tired??" He also said, "I feel like I'm out here by my goddamn self!" At one point, he seemed to have given up completely and performed his biggest hit "Hey Ya!" with his back turned towards the audience. After their mics were cut, André thanked fans for (half-assingly) rocking with them for the 90-minute set: I really appreciate y'all coming out. I know it's kind of weird 20 years later.

All is fair in love and war, or is it? Yesterday, we were hit with the news that celebrity couple Big Sean and Naya Rivera had called off their engagement, and now more details have made their way online. According to sources, Big Sean broke off the engagement to Naya Rivera earlier this week because she was way too controlling in the relationship and would fly into jealous rages — even breaking furniture in his home. She was very insecure in the relationship, due to his studio schedule and him always being on the road and she would say things to emasculate him during arguments such as, "If you don't listen to what I say, I'll ruin your career." According to TMZ: We're told she was suspicious whenever Sean was with other women and would work herself up into jealous rages … once breaking an expensive lamp during a rampage in his home. We're also told Big Sean and Naya went to couples counseling — which apparently worked because Sean realized how much he HATED being a couple … and decided to get the hell out. Sources close to the couple also tell us that Naya was pissed when Sean decided to get out of the relationship, so her reps leaked the story to Star Magazine that Big Sean had cheated on her to create a sob story. She also tweeted that he stole jewelry from her house, to paint him as a thief, when he actually took back a Rolex watch that he gave her as a gift. The watch was the first piece of jewelry he bought when he made it big. We are told that the relationship was bliss before the engagement, but with any relationship, over time, you get to know the real person. Big Sean takes the concepts of family and "forever" very serious so he decided that getting married may not be the best decision to make at this time. He's also hurt by what has transpired because he was deeply in love with Naya and never would have expected things to turn out this way. As far as the two getting back together, after the tweets, planting stories and accusations of thief, it's highly unlikely. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! In 2010, Naya was accused of keying Glee co-star Mark Salling's car after flying into a jealous rage and accusing him of cheating with other women.
