Music Feed: The TLC Biopic Aftermath

The TLC biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story has ruffled quite a few feathers in the days since its premiere on VH1. Pebbles, the former manager of TLC has been quoted saying that she would sue if details of her involvement(with TLC) were false. Pebbles own children have also spoken out defending their Mother, though I don't believe they were born when Pebbles worked with TLC. If they were they were surely much too young to remember any of it.

Pebbles
Pebbles rose to fame in the late 80s with singles like Mercedes Boy. She was also married to L.A. Reid, one half of the masterminds behind LaFace Records. She began managing TLC at the beginning of their career. She is responsible for bringing TLC together. During TLC's Behind The Music, Pebbles spoke candidly about her involvement with TLC. It was after the bad press that Pebbles received that she left the music industry.

Crystal Jones
Crystal Jones was the original "C" in TLC. She was replaced after she failed to carry a note and dance as thoroughly as Left Eye and T-Boz. Of course Crystal has also spoken out about her portrayal in the movie and now wants to write a tell all book! I don't think Crystal's story is all that interesting to warrant a tell all book. I could see if she had gone on to do something else worthwhile after TLC but she hasn't, that we know of. She is simply coming off someone who is simply trying to gain some fame from the movie, in other words she is simply an opportunist!

Aaron Reid
Aaron Reid is the son of Pebbles and L.A. Reid. We may know Aaron most famously from his 16th birthday bash on MTV's My Sweet 16. Some of us may also know him from when he awkwardly exposed himself with a nude pic. Many of us lost our lunch after the fact.

Aaron has been on Twitter defending his Mom which is understandable. Like I said though I do believe he is too young to really speak on something he has no idea about. I'm sure his Mother has told him stories but still this is TLC's version of the events. Pebbles could perhaps tell her own story which I hear she is eager to do. Wendy Williams anyone?

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…
