Exclusive: Bow Wow Explains Name Change



106 & Park host Bow Wow shocked fans earlier this week when he announced via Instagram that after BET weekend he’s dropping his stage name.

“I’m going by my real name ‘Shad Moss.’ We made alot of history as Bow Wow. Now it;s time for the next chapter and challenge. Bow Wow does not fit who I am today. I’m a father, businessman, TV host, actor and rapper! Time for Mr. Moss to take over,” he wrote on the social media network.

On Thursday night, HipHollywood caught up with the rapper/host while at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards to talk about the big announcement, and one thing the 27-year-old made clear was that he didn’t technically “change” his name.

“I’m laughing at how everyone’s reacting to it because it’s me, Shad. That’s who I am. I didn’t know people would blow it out of proportion like that. I never changed my name, I’m just going by my real name,” he told us.

“I don’t think Bow Wow can handle the things that Shad Moss can do. It’s two totally different guys. I’m embarking on so many different things now and it’s the moniker I want to do. People can still call be Bow, I don’t mind that, but Shad is what it is. We accomplished a lot as Bow so it’s time to accept this new challenge and this new role. I can’t wait.”

The rapper, who will be hosting events throughout BET Weekend also revealed to HipHollywood that fans can expect new music in just two weeks.


Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy



Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
