Motown’s Jimmy Ruffin, who is most known for his classics “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted” and “Hold on to My Love,” passed away on Monday at the age of 78.

Ruffin’s two children, Philicia and Jimmy Lee Jr. confirmed the news on Wednesday. The family released a statement that read:

“Jimmy Ruffin was a rare type of man who left his mark on the music industry. My family in its entirety is extremely upset over his death. He will truly be missed. We will treasure the many fond and wonderful memories we all have of him.”

During Ebony magazine’s Power 100 Gala on Wednesday night, HipHollywood talked with Earth, Wind & Fire’s Verdine White, who shared his reaction to the soul singer’s passing. “He was a great singer. He did some great work. He had some really great, great songs and he will be missed like all the rest of the greats. It’s always weird when a great dies. But their music will live one,” the famous guitarist said.

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
