Comedian Mo'Nique and 3LW's former manager comes for "The Real" TV host Adrienne Bailon

Image
So as I was searching for a picture to post along with who I was ready to talk about today, I came across one of my favorite pictures of Mariah Carey from her "The Emancipation of Mimi" album. Now I wasn't planning on talking about Mariah today but I did read through People magazine that Mariah is back with her ex-boyfriend, backup dancer; Bryan. If you are surprised by this revelation then you are not alone. I didn't bother reading the story, I just saw the headline and thought "Wow!". Now for what I truly wanted to talk about today was singer and TV host, Adrienne Bailon of the daytime talk show, "The Real". Well her former bandmate from 3LW, Naturi Naughton appeared on the show and Adrienne apologized to her for her part in the separation of 3LW. Naturi humbly accepted the apology though upon closer inspection, Naturi seemed like she wasn't really here for it. I knew their paths would cross again because they're both in the spotlight. …

Music Feed: Female Rap Collaborations

Image
In honor of the new collaboration between Missy Elliott, Lil' Kim, Trina, and Eve on Missy's "I'm Better Remix", I decided to recall some of the most famous(and those that may of went under the radar) collaborations with our beloved female rappers. I will even dish on some collaborations that were supposed to happen and why they never happened. I will even tease a few that I know that are supposed to happen(and hopefully they will)It's all here!

LADIES NIGHT(REMIX) - LIL' KIM featuring ANGIE MARTINEZ, MISSY ELLIOTT, DA BRAT, and LEFT EYE  - This collaboration from Lil' Kim's debut album, "Hardcore"(though it never appeared on "Hardcore"), turns 20 years old this year and was recently performed on "The Soul Train Music Awards" a few years earlier. B.W.A. - FOXY BROWN featuring GANGSTA BOO and MIA X appeared on Foxy Brown's 1999 album, "Chyna Doll" and its as gutter as you can get back then with all ladies…

Nicki Minaj speaks on "dating" Nas and Iggy Azalea new album has a release date

Image
Hey guys! I'll tell you now, this is a lengthier post so I'm warning you now. So yesterday Nicki Minaj appeared on "Ellen" and she brought up Nicki's rumored new boo, Nas. While Nicki played somewhat coy, she did admit to having "sleepovers" with Nas. She also says that she's "celibate" but may make an exception for Nas. I bet she will in fact I think any woman(or man) that is celibate will make an exception for Nas. I still can't get over how people keep saying that "SHether" has been removed from iTunes(Apple Music) when I periodically check and I see it there. Nas is collecting those coins. I'm guessing Nicki doesn't feel a ways about that considering she's just rubbing in the fact that's she's "dating" Nas. Remy's not worried though. She's been married for several years. Speaking of female rappers, Iggy Azalea will release her new album, "Digital Distortion" on June 30. I w…

Brandy said to be pregnant and Drake cleans up at "Billboard" awards

Image
The word on the street is that singer Brandy is pregnant but she is denying it! Brandy's former "Moesha" co-star, Countess Vaughn(who she famously feuded with) congratulated Brandy on the news not once but twice. Brandy's own daughter came out and said her Mother had partaken in eating numerous amounts of pancakes and so forth. Well little does Brandy's daughter know that all the extra eating could mean your Mother is pregnant. Maybe Brandy is pregnant and she's just not ready to make the announcement. She did put in her bio that she is not pregnant and is far too busy to be. But Brandy has definitely been flaunting around her new man which has become a controversy in itself. Brandy hasn't had the best luck in relationships and I think people genuinely want to see her happy. But the real question is why is Countess Vaughn continually congratulating Brandy if she is saying it isn't true? Is Countess just being shady? Well, the Billboard Music awards w…

Beyoncé has a baby shower and Nicki Minaj to open up Billboard awards

Image
Beyoncé had a push party(baby shower) yesterday with several friends and family by her side. Beyoncé's due date and sex of her twins are unknown has seen much speculation. Nicki Minaj will be opening tonight's Billboard Music Awards with what is being labeled a "epic 9 minute performance". Nicki will perform a medley of her hits and I'm sure "No Frauds" will be included for good measure. :) Drake is also said to be performing among others. The Billboard Music Awards air tonight at 8 P.M. EST(Eastern Standard Time) on ABC(I believe). Snoop Dogg says he's putting out a gospel album. Why? I don't know. But hey if it makes you money then so be it. Busta Rhymes just celebrated his 45th birthday. Our 90s rappers are getting old! Speaking of Busta, he hasn't put out new music in awhile that I'm aware of. You can hear him spit some bars on Faith Evans' "The King & I" album which is currently #1 on iTunes R&B chart. Go Fait…

Azealia Banks to re-release mixtape and BET award nominee causes a ruckus

Image
The BET Award nominations were released a few days ago and no surprises at all when it comes to the nominations. Beyoncé and Bruno Mars led with the nominations. The telecast will air on June 25(I think) on BET. VH1 rapper Cardi B from "Love & Hip Hop" got her first nomination for Best Female Rapper and was ecstatic about the news as she should be. Some trolls online weren't too happy about it and pissed her off and she ranted about it. I don't think she will will but that's very big that she did get nominated. A female rapper that didn't get nominated with Dreezy(song: "Close To You" featuring T-Pain) was very upset and vocal about her not getting nominated. I get her frustration because its like you're not being acknowledged by your own people but after all its the BET awards and its not the only music award ceremony there is in the world. As expected Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj are both nominated. Fan favorite Nicki Minaj has a shot at getti…

L.A. Reid leaves Epic Records and Future posts message to Ciara

Image
L.A. Reid, the man behind the careers of TLC, Mariah Carey, and Whitney Houston has left his post at Epic Records. On top of that he is being sued for sexual harassment by an Epic employee. I wonder is that why he left? For those of you unfamiliar with L.A. Reid, he started LaFace Records with Babyface and he was formerly married to 80s R&B singer Perri "Pebbles" Reid back in the day. He was also rumored to have had a fling with Chili from TLC, something both have denied over the years. Speaking of Epic Records, Future(who records for Epic Records) has everyone talking in a good way when he posted a sentimental message to Ciara for Mother's Day. It comes on the heels of Ciara's husband, Russell Wilson catching flack for including Future and Ciara's song, Future as his "family". If you think about it, Russell is Future's son stepfather so he is his family. I don't see the big deal. People need to find something else to go on about. In new mu…
