There have been conflicting reports surrounding Lil Wayne’s health. TMZ claims that he is still in intensive care and being watched closely six days after being admitted to the hospital. But Birdman called into Angie Martinez’s show on Hot 97 to tell a different story.
According to the Cash Money boss, Wayne has been in the hospital since Tuesday after suffering a single seizure (TMZ reports multiple seizures). “All the stuff people is saying, there’s no truth to it at all,” said Birdman.
“He’s doing much, much better and he’s in good shape right now,” he said.
He refuted reports that the seizures were triggered by an overdose of codeine aka “sizzurp.” Instead, he attributes the seizure to his work ethic and dedication to music.
“It had nothing to do with drugs, no such thing like that. He work ’round the clock. He’s just a hard grinder for this music. It wasn’t nothing about no drugs.”
Doctors have told Weezy to take it easy. “He just needed to get some rest, relax. Take it one day at a time. He’ll be back to normal as anybody else.”
He downplayed the near-death reports. “He never was in that kind of situation throughout the whole few days we’ve been in the hospital. He never been about to die or nothing like that.”
Weezy was on his way to shoot a music video when the seizure occurred. Birdman acknowledged that Wayne had suffered seizures in the past, so they knew what to do. “This like the second or third time, so automatically we just lay him down and we called the ambulance and get him to the hospital.”
Doctors have given him medication, but there is no immediate solution. “This is nothing that they can cure. It’s out of our control. It’s something we have to live with and maintain. They can’t tell you nothing, but get some rest and change what you been doing.”
When asked about the sizzurp reports, Birdman responded, “I really don’t know, but you really don’t want to see nobody doing that or something that could be harmful to you in any kind of way. But at this point, that’s not what they’re saying the cause of what’s going on. It’s more of not getting the proper rest.”
He may leave the hospital as soon as Tuesday once doctors give the OK.
Birdman also chided TMZ for scaring his fans and family.
“He’s in great health and he’ll be home soon,” said Baby. “Thank everybody for the support and the love they’ve been giving to him.”

In a sporty colorblock bikini for the sneak peek, Beyonce and her blonde curls have landed on SHAPE Magazine’s April 2013 cover. And it’s her first shoot with the mag.

1. Cardinal Bergoglio of Argentino has been officially named the first Latin American Pope. He will be called Pope Francis.
Beyoncé made men drool with her sexy GQ cover and had the ladies admiring her style on the cover of Vogue. Now she’s showing off her post-baby body on the cover of Shape’s April 2013 issue.
In the magazine, the pop icon reveals how she lost the 57 pounds she gained while pregnant with daughter Blue Ivy. “I didn’t have a lot of time to lose the weight because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again,” she laughed.
While it may appear otherwise, Bey admits that she too has to work to shed the pounds. “I’m not a person that is naturally very thin. I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape.”
Blue’s mom credits her dance workouts for keeping her fit, while offering some sound advice to others. “I would just say, everyone is not supposed to be the same. Be healthy and take care of yourself, but be happy with the beautiful things that make you you.”
See Bey flaunt her curves in the behind-the-scenes clip below.

As she prepares to light up the big screen in Sparkle, Jordin Sparks shows of her killer abs on the cover of the latest SHAPE Magazine. In the mag, she dishes on shedding 50lbs and getting healthier. She said,
“I just wanted to be healthy. It was just before my 21st birthday. I had walking pneumonia, couldn’t breathe and felt totally fatigued. I remember thinking, ‘I’m in my prime. I should be happy and fit.’ That was the moment when I decided that changes needed to be made. I knew I had a long road ahead of me. I was barely working out, and my diet was a mess. I had to address when, what, and how much I was eating.”
So what did she do? Jordin says she starting eating smaller portions, choosing leaner foods and going hiking in the mountains. “The weight really started falling off, and I could see my muscles. It was awesome."
Up next for Jordin, she’ll be in NYC hosting an event for the US Open. She tweeted, "Excited to co-host @AAKidsDay with @iamQuddus at the @usopen on 8/25 in NYC! Are you comin?"

Transworld Skateboarding has put forth a challenge to the skate community to shoot, direct, and produce the most creative skate video. Each team is comprised of four professional skaters and two amateurs. Each team is then given a director, and a warehouse of obstacles to work with. The idea is that all teams use the same warehouse, and same obstacles, and it is up to them to come up with the most creative piece in nine days. The winner gets the cover of the magazine and will have a spot reserved in Skate & Create 2011.
In this video submission from team adidas, Mark Gonzales, Dennis Busentiz, Benny Fairfax, Nestor Judkins, Lem Villemin, Jake Donnelly, all throw down some amazing skateboarding in some extremely creative set-ups. The director Matt Irving used creative lighting and camera angles to create a truly artistic representation of the sport.
