T.I. “Axed” From Body Spray Endorsement Deal, Kanye Feuds With L.A. Times, Queen Latifah Nabs VH1 Show

T.I. has officially been dropped as a spokesperson by Axe Body Spray, a rep for the company informed TMZ. The announcement comes less than a week after Tip was sentenced to 11 months in jail for violating his probation. The last month-and-a-half have been a roller coaster for the ATLien, as he’s been arrested, sentenced, helped talk a jumper off a ledge and now lost an endorsement.

T.I.’s “Swagger Like Us” collaborator, Kanye West, was also in the news today (October 20), as he took to Twitter late last night to express his dismay with the Los Angeles Times and writer Chris Lee. Lee, who reviewed Ye’s Los Angeles “Runaway” screening for the Times, mistakenly called his upcoming album My Dark Twisted Fantasy. “I assumed a respected media source [like] the Los Angeles [Times] would send a [writer] that would at least have the respect to call the album…by it’s proper title,” Yeezy tweeted. “It’s called “MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY.” His typo-laden vent session, which would soon be deleted, also accused the writer of “giving a soulless description” of Kanye’s work. Lee later apologized for the misprinted title.

Like West, Queen Latifah is bringing something new to the screen, but she’s doing it in the form of a television show. Single Ladies, an hour-long eight-episode dramady set to air on VH1. The show, which stars Stacey Dash, was originally slated to be a movie. “Once we saw an early cut of the movie we knew right away we needed to make this a series,” said VH1 Executive VP of Original Programming and Production, Jeff Olde, in a statement. The series is set to premier in July 2011. —Adam Fleischer

    Why everybody hatin’ on a nigga lately? Yo Axe I swear nigga I’ll get off that shit nigga I SWEAR IT. Grand Hustle nigga.

    • M. Baby!

      Nobody hatin on TIP, he just making stupid decisions in his life. When u gonna get that stupid hood mentality outta u. He came home, got married, #1 film, album about to drop, endoresment deals, and he does something stupid like this… He wasn’t even out a full year and he’s headed back to prison for violating his probation in 3 ways (all in one night). That’s just stupidity. U can’t have a repeated stupid convicted felon be the spokesperson of a million dollar company. Hov said it best, “I don’t be in the project hallways talkin bout how I be in the project all day, that sounds stupid to me, if u a gangsta, this is how u prove it to me…” I love TIP, I been listening to him since In Tha Streets….but this is just stupid and he caused this on himself, so if Axe wants to drop u, then so be it. Spearmint dropped Chris Brown after his incident with Rihanna and he didn’t have a record.
