Oprah and Jay-Z Tour Brooklyn

Talk about worlds colliding! In an upcoming episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Jay-Z and The Mighty O, hung out in the rapper's old neighborhood in Brooklyn this past Sunday. The duo took a little trip to Hova's grandmother's home and then went by the infamous Marcy projects which the rapper immortalizes in songs. The episode is all part of a show where Jay will talk about how his childhood in the projects, becoming a rapper turned mogul, his life with wife Beyonce and his assistance with helping disadvantaged children.

I guess this will put to rest all those haters saying Oprah vetoes rappers coming on her show.

Is Hayden Panettierre Trying to Play a Little Ball?

The gossip blogs are ablaze with reports that Heroes starlet Hayden Panittiere (ex-Lizzie, Guiding Light; ex-Sarah, One Life to Live) was spotted flirting and exchanging digits with Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom after a Jay-Z concert at the Palladium this past Wednesday. Now of course this could all be innocent. No need for Panittiere's beau/co-star Milo Ventimiglia to panic. Maybe she just wants a little help with her jump shot?
