Right now, @iammarkRonson is going at it with @PerezHilton. Personally I think it's off to ban Daniel etc., when your beef is with Mark. Plus any man who had slewed my sister in public the way Perez has, better not even TRY to talk to me on Twitter. Hell no!
Here's the highlights.
@iamMarkRonson Can we get rid of Wale on "Change" for the U.S. release of @DanMerriweather's album? Pretty please.
@PerezHilton um, could you get rid of my twitter address instead please? cheersabout 1 hour ago from web in reply to PerezHilton
@iamMarkRonson Ok.39 minutes ago from web in reply to iamMarkRonson
@iamMarkRonson And that wasn't meant as a bitchy remark. I truly think the song would b better without Wale. Just looking out 4 Merriweather36 minutes ago from web in reply to iamMarkRonson
@PerezHilton pardon me but you have made a career out of picking on teenagers, lesbians, etc. congrats, you can now add rappers to that list19 minutes ago from web in reply to PerezHilton
@iamMarkRonson Correct. And that's also given me a platform to talk about a lot of amazing musicians and expose them to millions of people.12 minutes ago from web in reply to iamMarkRonson
@ iamMarkRonson It's cool, boo. I unfollowed you. And I'll make sure to never mention @DanMerriweather again on my site. Because...12 minutes ago from web in reply to iamMarkRonson
@iamMarkRonson Not only am I fat, ugly, unfunny, stupid and a cunt, but I'm also petty.11 minutes ago from web in reply to iamMarkRonson
@iamMarkRonson I will try and keep abreast out of who your other artists are too, so I never mention them as well!11 minutes ago from web in reply to iamMarkRonson
@iamMarkRonson P.S. You're an overrated hack! (We have a lot in common!) xoxo10 minutes ago from web in reply to iamMarkRonson
We don't know the full story on this but apparently Perez was talking pure hype trash talk on Will I Am and the BEP on his site and Will told him to stop but Perez couldn't hear so he must feel!! (Can we just add - does Will not deserve a dissing for his 'appearance' in Wolverine? We're just saying!)
A lesson learned, wethinks...put it down to experience, Perez and remember the world is small, you WILL come face to face with your 'diss-ee's' eventually...

SMS support - BlackBerry devices are finally getting threaded SMS support.
PIN barcode scanning - Rather than find your PIN and reading or sending it, you will be able to scan a barcode to get the PIN. Just press the barcode option and another BlackBerry with a camera can scan it.
Backup/Restore Messenger list to microSD card —This is going to be huge, especially for people who change devices a lot.
Avatar support — set your own avatar using the Camera or saved photo on your device (this is displayed locally as well as shown next to your Messenger name on your friend’s buddy list).
GPS location integration — you can now set permissions so friends can always see your location, have to request it each time, or never can see it.
Proximity sensor — we’re guessing this will let you know if you’re within a certain distance of friends (pending, of course, you’re both set to share locations freely with each other).
Set conversation subjects — this will allow you to organize your convos on the main Messenger screen and label them with subjects to keep track of all your conversations.
Home screen support — you can pin/sticky actual Messenger contacts directly to the home screen for easy access!
Iphone - back to the drawing board perhaps???

Welcome, one and all to the new movie review section on LxEnts. LxEnts are lucky to have struck a deal with good old Orange (you may know it as Orange Wednesdays) whereby we spend shite loads on our monthly bill and in return on a Wednesday, when we buy a full priced ticket we get
lol oh and we mustn't forget the buy one get one free at Pizza Express...better than a kick in the teeth hey?
Anyhoo, yesterday the LxEnts team went on down to catch the new Danny Dyer and Noel Clarke movie 'Doghouse'. In one word - 'Genius'!
'Doghouse is centred around a group of mates having a 'lad's weekend away' in order to cheer up one of the guys who is in the midst of a painful divorce. Mikey (played by Clarke) decides they should go to a town called 'Moodley' known for being, quite frankly a 'shit hole' as his nan has a house there and will be away for 2 weeks. From the moment the lads arrive, it's quite clear there is something seriously wrong with this place. What do you know? It's the 'women'. Cue zombie, axe-wielding, man-hating women, blood, guts, gore and laughs for the next hour and thirty mins!
Directed by Jake West and written by Dan Schaffer, the comedic timing and irony throughout the film is nothing short of perfect. The chemistry between the actors is honest and Dyer proves that he is more than capable of stepping away from the 'East End Gangster role' to play an arrogant yet loveable scallywag who gets whats coming to him more than once yet still never really learns his lesson.
Doghouse HAS to be experienced on the big screen to be enjoyed to its maximum potential. This has got to be the first movie I've seen, period, where shouting out loud at the screen is totally acceptable and laughter isn't just a lousy attempt to show you got the joke!
Doghouse gets 5 Lynx out of 5 for being thoroughly entertaining!

First up - Skepta!
WILEY / LIE! a 'friendly' hey?
and especially this!
We all thought...'He ain't gonna last, WE HOPE!' Ice T tried to start the demise of the Soulja Boy movement and for a minute our lil Superman was nowhere to be seen and we all started to breathe easy comfortable in the knowledge that Hip Hop was 'saved'.
Can someone then please explain how/when the heezy THIS happened??
Soulja boy is credible!!?!! Metaphorically like the transition from caterpillar to butterfly! It's a good look because now we get tracks like this:
Moral of the story...what appears and sounds like a one hit wonder isn't always what it seems!
Weep at your peril!
