[Taken Straight From OhNoTheyDidnt]

An insider just informed me that Shannon from MTV’s Making The Band “Danity Kane” quit the band. This comes off of the heels of Diddy firing of Aubrey O’day and Dwoods.

You remember Shannon, the nice, quiet, married girl who was a great team player. Well, guess little momma has more balls than all the rest of them! Tired of the drama, cat fights and Diddy, she hands in her microphone and tells Mr. Badboy Worldwide where to stick it!

Now, this does make for a great new season of the “Making The Band.” Stay tuned!

Say what? Please discuss what you think here.

Ciara Comments On 'If I Were A Boy'

In an interview with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez recently she was asked how she felt about Beyonce’s “If I Were A Boy” song in which she replied: “I mean it’s a cool song…The Song Is Different But It Does Have The Same Concept Of Mines She Looks Beautiful In The Video I Will Say That”. She also revealed that her album will be pushed back to late January or early February of next year.

Quick Updates: FOB,

Pete Wentz's well-known gift of gab will come in handy as he and Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump attempt to break a Guinness World Record of most radio interviews by a pair completed in 24 hours. 

The two band members will attempt to hit as many radio stations as possible across America on Oct. 31 beginning at 3 a.m. PST at Premiere Studios in Los Angeles, the band announced Friday. 

The current record is 57 radio stations in 24 hours, completed in May 2008. 

Fall Out Boy will release their third album, Folie A Deux, on Dec. 16.

Nelly has teamed up with Akon, T-Pain and Pharrell Williams to form a rap super-group. The Hot In Herre hit-maker, who was previously rumored to be working with T.I., revealed his plans to join forces with his fellow rappers on a new record. 

He tells MTV's website, "Me, Akon, T-Pain and Pharrell are talking about doing a project. We got a host of things we're trying to do - possibly put together this new 2009 (Bell Biv DeVoe) type of thing." And Nelly isn't worried about conflicted schedules getting in the way of the collaboration. 

He adds, "I don't think you try to put things together with people you don't think you can accomplish (them) with. With 'Kon, with Pain and Pharrell, I know it's more about the music than anything. It's about leaving something. I think we're all OK as far as the money thing goes. I don't think anybody is hurting. You wanna do things you can be remembered by. Make a mark. I think that's something that's foremost on all our minds." 

However, Williams is keeping quiet the project: "Those are all my boys. I'm kinda like the only one that adheres to the oath of secrecy. I don't wanna break that," and refuses to reveal what direction the sound will take, adding, "Well, seeing as though I'm supposed to be upholding my end of the bargain of upholding my oath of secrecy, I'm not so sure of how to answer that question."

Jennifer Hudson's Mother & Brother Found Dead

CHICAGO (AP) -- The mother and brother of Jennifer Hudson were found shot dead Friday at a South Side home, and police were seeking a missing child who is the nephew of the singer and Oscar-winning actress. "We can confirm that there is an ongoing investigation concerning the deaths of Jennifer Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson," Hudson's personal publicist, Lisa Kasteler, said in a statement. "No further comment will be made and the family has asked that their privacy be respected at this difficult time."

Police spokeswoman Monique Bond said the deaths appeared to be the result of domestic abuse.

Deputy Chief Joseph Patterson said a family member entered the home around 3 p.m. Friday, found a woman shot on the living room floor and left to notify authorities. Responding officers found a man shot in the bedroom, Patterson said. There was no sign of forced entry.

Police tape blocked access to the large, white house, where a crowd gathered outside.

Authorities issued an Amber Alert for 7-year-old Julian King, and were seeking a 1994 white Chevrolet Suburban. The child was the grandson of the female victim, Patterson said.

The alert said the child was possibly abducted, and accompanied by a man — considered armed and dangerous — who was a suspect in the double homicide investigation. Records with the Illinois Department of Corrections show the man, who has not been charged with a crime, is on parole and spent nearly seven years in prison for attempted murder, vehicular hijacking and possessing a stolen vehicle.

The two could also be in a teal or green Chrysler Concord with a temporary license plate, a left front headlight hanging out and scratches on the left side of the vehicle, police said.

The tragedy comes as Hudson, who grew up in Chicago, continues to reach new heights in her career.
