In today’s Daily Rap Macy Gray takes on the fashion world and Cassidy denies being HIV positive.


Macy Gray Re-Launches Plus Size Fashion Line

Macy Gray is expanding her fashion portfolio - the R&B singer is set to re-launch her plus-size fashion range.

The I Try hitmaker unveiled her Humps fashion line in 2008, and she's been re-inspired to design clothes for "voluptuous women" after performing at the unveiling of an Esprit store in New York City earlier this month.

She tells Women's Wear Daily, “I was surprised (by the clothes at Esprit). I hadn't been to Esprit in forever."

Humps is reportedly set to re-launch next year.

Cassidy Slams HIV  Rumours

Rapper Cassidy has lashed out at rumours he's HIV positive amid allegations he passed on the virus to a female fan.

The Hotel hitmaker, real name Barry Reese, hit the headlines last week after an unidentified woman from his native Philadelphia, Pennsylvania claimed she had contracted HIV after having unprotected sex with the star on several occasions.

But Cassidy has blasted the reports, insisting he is "perfectly healthy" and has no idea who the young woman is. In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Stopactinstupid! (sic) I don't even know that lil girl... I only f**k with pretty girls... and I still don't go raw (have unprotected sex).

"I'm sick with it, but not like that! That b**ch probably mad she not my type (sic). I'm perfectly healthy, so it can't be true."
