The Word: Coco wants baby girl to be a lawyer

Give us Chanel-T, Coco and Ice-T!

A good way for the world to forget that whole pesky drama of Ice-T‘s wife, Coco, canoodling with Oakland rapper AP.9 in December? For her to get knocked up with Ice-T’s baby — at some point.

“I want a little girl!” Coco tells In Touch in this week’s issue. “We already have the name — Chanel. I want her to be a lawyer!”

“Chanel-T” will have to wait a bit in the creation department, however, as Coco is filling in for the pregnant Holly Madison as star of the burlesque Peepshow at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “I want a little doll of my own!” she adds. “I could teach her to walk in heels and do her hair.”

I, for one, cannot wait. The maternity wear alone is going to be priceless.

Stars react on Beyonce lip-syncing controversy
Singers and celebrities the world over are weighing in on the Beyonce lip-syncing controversy, with most saying they respect the fact she didn’t sing live.

“Sometimes it happens when you are in certain stadiums and certain venues and things, they do pre-record stuff because you’re going to have that terrible slap back,” Jennifer Lopez told Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show.”

And Aretha Franklin, no stranger to singing at inaugurations, agreed: “I thought it was funny because the weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees and for most singers that is just not good singing weather,” she told ABC News. “When I heard that, I just really cracked up. I thought it was really funny, but she did a beautiful job with the pre-record.”

But perhaps it was Stephen Tyler who expressed his opinion best. When a TMZ cameraman asked what the Aerosmith frontman thought, he responded:  “Beyonce’s so hot she can do anything. Let’s just get real.”

Agreed.
