Everyone is buzzing about Oprah Winfrey’s long-lost sister, Patricia, whom Oprah’s mother, Vernita Lee, gave up for adoption when she was born in 1963. An insider told Popeater: “No one knows what the future holds for the family. Patricia doesn’t want a dime from Oprah and certainly wasn’t going to take money from a tabloid whose offers are now pouring in.” Sources say the starting dollar figure that one tabloid offered Patricia is $1 million.”

 

Terrell Owens cruised down Main Street in Park City, Utah, in town for the Sundance Film Festival, and stopped by the Solstice Sunglasses.com Lounge with friends. Already decked out in bright colors, Terrell picked out a pair of hot orange CARRERA Sunglasses to complete his outfit, he even made sure his bodyguard got shades before heading out to see a screening.

 

After Aretha Franklin told talk show hostess Wendy Williams that she would like Halle Berry to portray her in a bio-pic, Halle told E!Online that since she couldn’t sing, she couldn’t do the Queen of Soul justice. Aretha responded with: “I would have liked Halle Berry to portray the older Aretha in the upcoming biopic of my life based on my memoir “Aretha: From The Roots,” she was my first, but not my only choice. Everything is subject to negotiation and she shouldn’t underestimate her own talent. There are a number of other leading ladies out there that can definitely handle the role.” Franklin said she never expected Halle to sing, she’s an actress, not a singer. Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-syncing to the artist’s original recordings.

Singer/songwriter Gail Allen, who performed with the legendary female group The Shirelles for six years, will be appearing at Birdland Jazz Club, 315 W. 44th Street, New York City, at 6 p.m. on January 27. Gail’s style of singing has complimented many recording sessions and her talents have allowed her to work as an on-air radio personality and voice-over artist.

 

E1 Entertainment rapper Big Unk, a huge viral phenomenon with over 20 million viewers and break-out hip-hop favorite from Louisiana, wants to set the record straight. The rapper, who was arrested on January 15 and charged with possession of 150 pounds of marijuana and a gun, is ready to fight for his freedom. The rapper was detained on a “routine” traffic stop while out dining in Beaux Bridge, Louisiana. Finding nothing in Big Unk’s car, the authorities later went to his home, where they allegedly found the marijuana and a gun. Big Unk says neither was actually in his home. They did, however, seize $500,000 worth of jewelry and $72,000 in cash from his residence. Innocent until proven guilty, Big Unk will release a new CD in February.
