Destiny's Child sang on their 2000 hit "Independent Woman" that they depend on themselves to pay their own bills. Perhaps founding member Kelly Rowland is taking that motto to heart.
The singer announced in a joint statement Wednesday (January 28) with Matthew Knowles that the two are severing their working relationship. Knowles is Beyoncé's father and manages her, in addition to her sister Solange , and Destiny's Child. He also oversaw Rowland's career since she her first solo LP, 2002's Simply Deep.
"Mathew Knowles has been a positive influence in my career," Rowland said in the statement. "I have had great success under his guidance — both as a member of Destiny's Child and with my solo projects. Although we have decided to part ways professionally, the Knowles family and the entire Music World Entertainment team will always be my family."
Destiny's Child split in 2005 but have maintained the split is not permanent.
Of course this is all Beyonce's fault. Kelly never got a chance to shine on her own in Destiny's Child and Beyonce could've featured Kelly on one of her hit singles after she went solo--I mean that's what friends do, right? I say for her next record Kelly needs to record a diss track and put Bey on blast.

Remember Amy Fisher? The now infamous woman, who at the age of 17 shot the wife of her then 35-year old lover Joey Buttafuoco, is currently starring in a pay-per-view adult film.Damn, once a skank always a skank I guess. But I saw this whore on some talk show not too long back with her husband and two kids saying that she'd really turned her life around. And is she on drugs with that nonchalant "none of this seems like cheating" line, or just stupid? Most likely both.
Fisher, 34, told Fleshbot.com she has "a fascination with the adult world," and thinks "it's very cool."
The film titled “Amy Fisher: Totally Nude & Exposed” became available January 12 and will run through February.
Fisher isn’t new to the adult industry. In October 2007, Amy's then estranged husband Lou Ballera sold a sex tape of the couple to a Los Angeles based adult entertainment company. Despite legal bickering between the two parties, the video was eventually released in January of 2008. Coincidently, Fisher and Ballera reconciled by the film’s launch. (Sounds like a publicity stunt to me.)Fisher's current pay-per-view special has its limitations. In an interview, the adult star says the film solely contains female-only scenes because to her husband, Ballera, “that doesn’t seem like cheating." Amy adds, "To me, none of it seems like cheating---it’s just having a good time. And there are a lot of great looking guys out there who I would love to work with."

Despite critical acclaim for Naturi Haughton for her portrayal of Lil Kim in “Notorious, the Queen Bee is still not having it.
A war of words erupted in the weeks leading up to the release of the Biggie biopic, with Lil
Kimvowing to “expose” Faith Evans and Big’s mother, Voletta Wallace.
In a new statement that appeared on Bossip, Kim stated that she was in love with the late Christopher Wallace, and the feeling was mutual.
“I feel like I was not portrayed how I should have been in this movie," she said. "I was in love with BIG and he was in love with me. I was never a JUMP-OFF, I know this and BIG knew this. I wasn’t even able to choose who I wanted to portray me in this movie. I would have never picked Naturi, she doesn’t have a Lil Kim aura at all! She looks nothing like I looked back then. We have NO similarities.”
Kim went on to call Haughton’s performance “dreadful” and hinted at legal action over the film.
“Another thing is, I have been dealing with legal matters as far as them not wanting to pay me and shit for this movie, got a lawyer involved, so everything is cool with that, but it still doesn’t change my views and feelings. This is truly Faith and Ms. Wallace’s movie. And Ms. Wallace is right, this isn’t a Lil’ Kim movie and it’s not about me. I didn’t want it to be about me, I wanted it to be REAL though. And that it is NOT. I take no part in this movie and have nothing to do with it.”
Personally, I don't blame Kim for being pissed. Haughton gave a decent performance in the flick, but she clearly had no business playing Kim due to skin tone alone. Clearly this was a slight by Faith and Ms. Wallace to start up a beef that most folks probably thought was long dead. As for legal action tho, I'm no lawyer, but from the little I know Kim would have to prove that the flick damaged her career or rep or something like that before she could take 'em to court for say, defamation. And considering her career is pretty much in the toilet these days, much less her rep and her grill, all in all I'd say it'd be a waste of time going anyway with this as far as legal action. Now if Kim dished all the Biggie, Faith, Junior Mafia and whatever other hip-hop dirt she's got in some huge tell-all or something, that'd be somethin', maybe even make the NYTimes best-sellers list. Shit, I know I'd cop it.

Actress Eva Mendes has been crowned the Most Desirable Woman in the world by a new online survey.
The star topped a poll that received more than 10 million votes, beating the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Bajan beauty Rihanna, who could only manage seventh and eight place respectively.
The sexy actress also beat Megan Fox who last year was crowned the Sexiest Woman in the World by FHM magazine.
And Mendes is ecstatic she beat such tough competitors to be named the favorite on AskMen.com.
She says, "Of all the qualities I find attractive in a man, paying me such a compliment tops my list. Thanks, guys."
Beauty. Brains. Activist. Role model. Scene-stealing actress. Classy. The kind of woman your mom would love. What more can a man ask for? My only gripe is Rihanna being on this list. I mean, Rihanna?!? Anyway, congrats to Eva for an award that's well-deserved!

Looks like Spider-Man 4 will reach the big screen in May, 2011.The Lizard and Carnage? What about Spidey's greatest villain IMO, the Hobgoblin?
Actor J. K. Simmons -- who stars as J. Jonah Jameson, publisher of The Daily Bugle, tells MTV News from Sundance that he's been told to be ready to go next year.
Star Tobey Maguire is set to play Peter Parker and his webslinging alter-ego, and Kirsten Dunst has said she's ready to talk about re-upping as Mary Jane. Sam Raimi will be back to direct the fourth installment.
Though no villains have been announced, speculation has The Lizard as the main bad guy (his alter ego, Dr. Connors, was introduced in Spider-Man 2) with Carnage as support (think Spider-Man 3 Venom, only in red).
Simmons says he doesn't expect his role to be enlarged -- and, frankly, hopes it isn't. "I have no desire to make Triple-J more of the focus of those movies," he said. "The amount that I did in 1, 2 and 3, is just exactly right. Like be the wolf. Come in, blow in, do a week, blow out, be the comic relief, and hit the road. And let Tobey and everybody else do the heavy lifting."

Any dude who would pay more than a $100 to have sex with this chick is certifiably insane. First of all, she's not hot and what if she's done everything under the sun with dudes, but let one enter her garden--does that still make her a virgin? Then too I doubt this chick even goes through with the exchange. This whole thing smells of a fraud--I mean why is she using a fake name? Plus, she's already signed a book deal. Whatever comes of this I wonder how this chick will feel about whoring herself out in 20 years?
A San Diego woman who is auctioning off her virginity said she has now received a bid of $3.7 million, according to a published report.
Natalie Dylan, a 22-year-old San Diego woman, said she got the idea for the auction after her sister was able to pay for her college education after prostituting herself for three weeks, according to the London Telegraph.
Dylan has a degree in women's studies. She told the paper she hopes to pay for an advanced degree in family and marriage therapy with the proceeds from the auction.
She told the Telegraph that she doesn't think she's the only one who will be benefit from the auction.
"I think me and the person I do it with will both profit greatly from the deal," Dylan told the paper.

Damn, I can't count how many CDs and DVDs I bought from Circuit City over the years. Sorry to see it go, even sorrier for the 30,000 employees about to lose their jobs:
Circuit City became the largest retailer to fall victim to the expanding financial crisis Friday, announcing it will shut down its remaining 567 U.S. stores at the cost of 34,000 more jobs after failing to sell the business.
The closure of the nation's second-biggest consumer electronics retailer spells more trouble for the nations malls, and is the latest casualty of an unprecedented pullback in consumer spending that has claimed KB Toys, Mervyns LLC and Linens 'N Things.
"Very, very sad," said Alan L. Wurtzel, son of company founder Samuel S. Wurtzel and himself a former chief executive of Circuit City. "I feel particularly badly for the people who are employed or until recently were employed."
Richmond, Va.-based Circuit City had been seeking a buyer or a deal to refinance its debt, but the hobbled credit market and consumer worries proved insurmountable. Negotiations for an acquisition extended past midnight Thursday before finally falling through, Circuit City lawyer Gregg Galardi said.
Two potential buyers -- Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego, who controls a chain of electronics stores in Latin America, and the Golden Gate Capital private equity firm -- considered a shrunken form of the business, retaining as many 350 stores or as few as 180. But Circuit City couldn't secure the necessary financing or support from vendors.
"This is the only possible path for our company," acting Chief Executive James A. Marcum said in a statement. "We are extremely disappointed by this outcome."

How bad is the current economic crunch? Even "American Idol" winners are being affected:
Fantasia Barrino's Charlotte home is set for debtor's auction at noon Monday, according to a report Wednesday in the New York Post - and officials say the "American Idol" winner seems to be ignoring the loss.
The problem stems from a $65,000 loan Barrino received from a Florida credit card company in 2006. Aside from a $10,000 payment in 2007, Barrino has failed to repay the rest of the loan, prompting the company to auction the Piper Glen house.
The Post reports that Mecklenburg sheriff's deputies have tried several times to reach the singer by phone and at the home, but to no avail. The story also said Barrino hasn't responded to court documents or had a lawyer appear in court to represent her. Barrino's attorney declined to comment for the Post story.
Now we all know Fantasia had some hard times on the come up, having been raped, pregnant as a teen and barely able to read her kid bedtime stories, so something has to be amiss for her to be ignoring this mess. I mean, maybe she couldn't read the court documents or something like that.
