UK Celebrity Big Brother has again returned to our screens to brighten our January, pretty much the only event to look forward to this month.
One of this season’s housemates, the rapper Ray J brings an early season “bang”, to the surprise of literally no one.
The rapper’s fame essentially peaked during the mid-to-late-noughties with some mediocre hip-hop and a sex tape with Kim Kardashian in 2007.
The rapper felt that he needed no introduction when was interviewed by UK CBB host, Emma Willis before entering the Big Brother house last night, clad in a Union Flag print shirt.
I’m Ray J and you may remember me from my dick!
The rapper appeared surprised that some on God’s Earth were still yet to see the 30minute long recording and immediately encouraged them to do so; “Go download it” and “put some more money in my pocket!”
To be fair, Ray J’s surprise isn’t entirely misplaced. His sex tape with Kim Kardashian (now married to rapper Kanye West), is PornHub’s most searched-for video… Indeed, PornHub value the home-made content to the extent that they actually offered a cash reward for anyone with info following Kim being robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

This year, Channel 5 producers are getting much more bang (pun intended…) for their P, as Ray J is reportedly raking in $1million (£810,000) for his appearance, making him the highest-earning resident in the long running television reality show’s history. CBB-veteran Jasmine Waltz is making a comeback too, returning to the Big Brother house just hours after her contentious sex tape went viral… again.
Meanwhile, in Tinsel Town, the eldest Kardashian daughter has made her very own return to the spotlight, posting a photograph to social media captioned, ‘Family’.

After around six whole months of silence many have suggested that the photo may have been shared at the opportune moment. It sure appears to highlight Kim’s relentless successes alongside Ray J’s failures twinned with his current spell in a well-lit jail for fame-seeking D-listers. If you ever needed evidence that a “momager” can do wonders for your career after your sex tape goes wild… This is it.
