Whitney Houston's Family Messing With Sparkle Movie Premiere

“Sparkle,” the movie that marks Jordin Sparks‘ big-screen debut and Whitney Houston‘s movie swan song, is set to open August 17.

A red-carpet premiere is planned for the film — Sparks tweeted that she’s getting a dress custom-designed for it — but a report suggests that Houston’s family is making things difficult in terms of scheduling.

While premieres normally take place at least a week before a movie opens, Showbiz411.com claims that the film’s premiere is tentatively scheduled for the day before the movie hits theaters because of Houston’s family’s demands.

Sources tell the website that the family doesn’t want the premiere to be held on any date that’s near August 9, which would have been Houston’s 49th birthday.

In addition, sources tell Showbiz411.com that the question of which family members will be attending, including Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, and her mom, Cissy Houston, is also “very much up in the air.”

On top of that, the location of the premiere is upsetting the family. “I’m surprised they’re having it in Los Angeles, where Whitney died,” said a source. “They should be having it in New York.”

Album Spotlight: Ne-Yo - In My Own Words

It's probably starting to look like a Ne-Yo fan site here with all the recent posts mentioning him; but I assure you it is not. The hype behind Ne-Yo's debut album; "In My Own Words" reached a fever pitch thanks to the debut single; "So Sick". The song was a huge success including its singles; "Sexy Love", "When Ur Mad" and more.

Ne-Yo definitely plays up on his buzz by writing and producing many of the tracks. This album would lead to Ne-Yo being a very sought after songwriter and producer. It is the album of his I favor the most. I think as he progressed as an artist; I somewhat lost interest.

*UPDATED* Music Feed: Janet Jackson's Most Sexualized Songs: REVISITED

You all, my readers, my visitors; my supporters; you have made this post one of the most successful posts on my blog. I kept wondering what it was about this post, that made it so successful; one word: JANET! The fact that Janet has new music on the way makes this post even more of a hot topic. As its been said before, no one sings about sex quite like Janet Jackson. Her songs, ooze with the right amount of sexuality perfect for a night of steamy sex. Take a look back at a number of songs Janet is responsible for delivering her in trademark breathy delivery. I took the liberty of adding a few other songs that didn't make the list before. 

"Warmth"
This song begins with echos of Janet saying "...in my mouth". By then you should already know what this song is about. Janet sings about the "warmth" of her mouth and how she pleases her lover; Jermaine Dupri at the time. This is a very sensual song and it is one of the most explicit Janet has ever recorded …

Album Spotlight: Beyonce - Dangerously In Love

If you were in love in 2003, it wasn't official unless you were living "Dangerously In Love". It was the title of Beyonce's 2003 breakthrough solo album which spawned the singles, "Crazy In Love" featuring Jay-Z, "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul, "Me, Myself, and I", and the title track. The album would serve as a precursor of what was to come from this bonafide superstar. Unlike her later albums, "Dangerously" was deep-rooted in southern soul and R&B melodies. This album also showed a more gentler, sultry, and relaxed(voice wise) Beyonce. As opposed to the last few years her style has been more abrasive and in your face. Never one to be outdone, Beyonce was set to release a follow-up to this album titled, "Dangerously In Love 2" featuring unreleased songs but it didn't happen. From the seductive "Speechless" to the cautionary tale of "Me, Myself, and I", "Dangerously In Love" is m…
