Beyoncé told MTV News that she hadn't planned to put her cover of Des'ree's "I'm Kissing You" — which she retitled "Still in Love (Kissing You)" — on her re-released B'Day - Deluxe Edition album and video anthology, but other people insisted, telling her she'd be "crazy" not to. She might have benefited from a second opinion, since now she's being sued for copyright infringement over the track.Beyonce just needs to admit that she's a biter and cough up the dough. I mean it's not like she can't afford it.
The Royalty Network — which administers the publishing on behalf of Westbury Music, owner of the copyright for Des'ree's song — is asking for $150,000 in damages and seeks an injunction to recall the album from stores, according to a suit filed Monday in Manhattan Federal Court. A hearing to show cause has been scheduled for Monday.

It looks like former Destiny's Child member Farrah Franklin may still harbor ill feelings towards Beyonce. MediaTakeOut.com got it's hands on an interview that Farrah did with a publication called N Magazine. Below is an excerpt from the interview:
Nmagazine: So Farrah, any new projects coming out
Farrah: Yeah actually I’ve been in the studio working on my album
NM: So, this would be your first solo album?
Farrah: Yup! (Very enthusiastically)
NM: You must be excited
Farrah: Very (giggles)
NM: we all know you used to be in Destiny’s Child. What’s the difference
between being in DC and being a solo artist?
Farrah: well when I was in it (Destiny’s Child) it was more focused on one
person. It’s called a group but it was more like a solo artist and her backup
singers. I don’t take a backseat to anyone and that’s why I quit
NM: is it fair to say that solo artist is Beyonce?
Farrah: (laughs) whoever you want it to be
NM: we have to ask, are the rumors true? Is Beyonce a bee-otch?
Farrah: (laughs very hard) ummmm. I wouldn’t say she’s a bitch but she is
(long pause) a perfectionist.

The Puerto Rican boy band Menudo, which gave singer Ricky Martin his start, is coming back as part of an "American Idol"-style reality show called "The Road to Menudo."I know that Ricky Martin was once in Menudo, but wasn't that kid who did "Rico Suave" once part of them too?
Dozens of Latino teenagers showed up for auditions Saturday at a waterfront market in Miami, the Miami Herald reported. Judges included Johnny Wright, the music manager behind New Kids on the Block, 'NSync and the Backstreet Boys, and Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough.
Menudo was one of the most popular boy bands of the 1980s and '90s, rotating in new talent every few years when the singers got old or their voices changed.
"We're going to make it a little different than it was before," Wright told the Herald. "The beat is going to be the beats of the street now — club, hip-hop and rock. It's not going to be something that's pigeonholed."

SHE'S insisted that Eddie Murphy is the daddy and now a full-scale legal battle with Mel B looks imminent.
The former Spice Girl has put the actor's name on Fortuna Daphne Bay's birth certificate.
And she's adamant that a DNA test will prove that the 46-year-old Dreamgirls star is her new baby's dad.
Surely when it starts laughing outrageously and acting the ass, we'll all know the truth... A source said: "Mel has no doubt Eddie is the father and she wanted to make the point." However, even though Scary's hired a ridiculously expensive lawyer, friends say she doesn't want Murphy to have any part in her baby's life.
The source adds: "She doesn't want him involved because he has hurt her too much."
I believe Mel B. She never had a rep for being a slut and she'd look really stupid if it came off that she's lying.

NASSAU, Bahamas (CNN) -- Larry Birkhead is the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby daughter, Dannielynn, a Bahamian judge ruled Tuesday.
"Everybody, I hate to be the one to tell you this -- but I told you so," Birkhead said outside the court as he smiled and threw his hands into the air.
When asked what's next, he said, "I'm going to the toy store."
Crowds applauded in front of the courthouse as Birkhead, Smith's former boyfriend, made the announcement, and Birkhead teared up as he thanked his supporters. (Watch Birkhead be the one to say 'I told you so' )
A DNA test confirmed him as the father with 99.99 percent certainty, said Dr. Michael Baird, who performed the test and revealed the results to a closed session of a Bahamian court Tuesday.
The court had ordered DNA testing to determine the father of the child, who has been at the center of a paternity dispute since she was born in a Bahamian hospital in September.
Smith had publicly identified Howard K. Stern, her lawyer and live-in companion, as the baby's father and listed him as the father on the child's birth certificate.
Stern hugged Birkhead and said he is not going to fight him for custody.

Talk about a lose-lose situation. A judge recently had to decide the custody of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Christina. While one parent typically stands out in these cases as the proper choice, Whitney and Bobby surely made it tough on the judge.
Not resorting to Option C - Neither, the judge has decided to grant custody rights to Whitney. According to Monsters & Critics, “The ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer’s divorce was approved yesterday (May 4th) by Judge Franz E. Miller in California’s Orange County court and will be finalized on April 24.”
Whitney, now 43-years-old, will have full custody of 14-year-old daughter. Houston was said to be emotional during the hearing, reportedly dabbing her eyes with a tissue before declining to comment on the proceedings as she left the courthouse.
Meanwhile, Bobby’s lawyer said the ‘My Prerogative’ singer is not happy with the judge’s ruling and plans on filing a petition to overturn the decision.
