The United Kingdom version of the reality television show "Big Brother" started yesterday (January 3rd) and this season has some hip-hop slash rap connections. "Thong King" Sisqo will join rapper Lady Sovereign and nine other celebrities as housemates in "Big Brother." You might remember Lady Sovereign as the young white female rapper who was signed to Def Jam by none other than Jay-Z himself.
Other celebrities in the "house" include actors Stephen Baldwin, Vinnie Jones and actress Stephanie Beacham, model Nicola Tappenden, MMA fighter Alex Reid, UK pop singer Dane Bowers, Madam Heidi Fleiss, record producer Jonas Altberg and the ex-girlfriend of Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones), Katia Ivanova (does that make her a celebrity?).
