YOU ARE NOT THAT FANCY: IGGY IS NOT FRIENDLY ON SET

You know when you give people an inch, they want to take a mile. I not too long ago reported that the Miss Fancy rapper Iggy Azalea was going to host MTV’s House of Style. I was saying how great of any opportunity this was for and yada yada yada. Now word has it that Iggy is not a pleasure to work with on set. (Actually an MTV source spilled the beans to THR)

During a taping with Jennifer Lopez Iggy came onto the set with attitude. She would not remove her sunglasses and she was a sour puss the whole time the cameras were not on. Meanwhile Jennifer was a straight professional. She was unbothered by Iggy’s foolishness. Jen shook everyone’s hands and smiled during the whole shoot.

Iggy a little word of advice you are one single away from being a has been. When you are given an opportunity, you should act accordingly and leave a good taste in peoples mouths when you leave.

WHAT A COLLABO: NICK CANNON AND SYFY WORK TOGETHER

What does funny man Nick Cannon and the Syfy network have in common? Tough question right? Many would say nothing, until now. Syfy has joined forces with Nick Cannon’s Team NCredible to produce an improv comedy Syfy show.

The improv series will be tapped in front of a live studio audience. How are the going to make this happen. When I think of Syfy I think of green screens and lots of graphics. Nick Cannon isn’t a rookie at producing hit TV shows. His Wild n Out series is in it’s sixth season. If a show suck it usually doesn’t last six season. Nick is clearly the right man for the job.

Comedy on Syfy, this sounds so wild I have to check it out.

SHE IS SO FANCY: IGGY AZALEA GETS A GIG WITH MTV

 Rapper Iggy Azalea has been getting a lot of flak from lots of spectators and her hip hop peers for not writing her own rhymes. Say what you will about the blonde bombshell, but while all of you are talking Iggy will be adding a new title to her resume. Iggy has been chosen to hot MTV’s House of Style.

Yes House of Style is coming back. I remember watching it when I was a kid and Cindy Crawford was the host. Reviving this show has not been easy, this is MTV’s second attempt at bringing it back. During this season on House of Style, Iggy will visit the best vintage stores in LA and some music video sets as well.

House of Style will premiere on August 4th on MTV.com

Can the fancy rapper pull this off?

HUNGRY ANYONE: MTV GIVES US SNACK OFF

Don’t you hate it when you refrigerator is on E. So empty you sometimes think about eating the baking soda. Well never fear Snack-Off is here. The new MTV cooking show, allows some hungry individuals to create delicious snacks with one main ingredient. So if you just have hotdogs, you make a hotdog meatloaf. Sounds gross but when your hungry the word gross does not exist anymore.

Created by MTV’s own Rob Dyrdek Snack-Off will most certainly give you a case of the munchies.  Although not your average cooking competition, Snack-Off is one of a kind. I wouldn’t be surprised of the Food Network and the Cooking Channel cooked up their own version of this type of show. The  only qualified judge on this show is Jason Quinn he is a chef and an entrepreneur, he is joined with model Chrissy Teigen and the third seat is filled by rotating guest judges.

Besides bragging rights the winner of Snack-Off will also win a Golden Fork and a cash prize.

Do you have the munchies?

OMG! Do you remember running home after school to watch MTV’s TRL (Total Request Live). That show was the bomb. I remember seeing Jay-z and Beyonce together for the first time in matching jean outfits on that show. Ohhhhh remember when  Usher went on this random rant about his then wife Tameka on that show.
