Chris Brown Diagnosed With Bipolar Disorder

Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ... and that's why he has had such anger issues ... this according to new court docs.

Chris was in court today for a progress hearing in the Rihanna beating case. Documents were filed by the facility where Chris just completed 90 days of anger management therapy. In fact, Chris stayed longer, just completing 95 days.

In the legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- an official from the rehab facility wrote that ... in addition to his diagnosis ... Chris was self-medicating inappropriately.

The facility writes, "Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD." They never explain the cause of the PTSD. The letter also says Chris was diagnosed with Bipolar II. http://www.tmz.com/2014/02/28/chris-brown-bipolar-rehab-anger-management-rehab-court/

Mariah Carey Upsets Fans With BET Honors Performance

Image
Hey y'all! Mariah Carey's fans are upset after witnessing her performance at the BET Honors 2014 which aired on Monday night. Not only did Mariah cause headlines from her plunging neckline of a dress that revealed her breast but she is also under fire for her prerecorded vocals. I'm not exactly sure why fans are upset about the vocal performance part. It is no secret that Mariah no longer sings live and if she does, its because her backing track malfunctioned. She has been exposed as a lip syncer over the years and it simply is what it is. I think she chooses to lip sync most performances she is a perfectionist. I'm not making excuses for her but then too I just don't think she is a very confident vocalist since her voice has changed somewhat significantly over the years for the worse. Still love Mariah though! Her new album will be released on May 6. The album's first single, Your Mine(Eternal)(which will soon likely be regarded as a buzz single) is under per…

Chris Brown Springs A Leak, Ashanti Speaks On Beyonce Feud

Image
Hey y'all! More drama in the Chris Brown camp as if that's a surprise. This time the famed entertainer is calling out his former manager for leaking his X album. Little by little several tracks from Chris' long awaited album have leaked out to blogs. I was wondering where all these leaks were coming from! Chris' ex manager Tina Davis shot back via Twitter(which Chris made his accusations) stating he "should trace it back to RCA". Ouch! So what is she saying? The label is leaking the album? Hey! Probably so.

And in other music news...Ashanti's new album BraveHeart is available to stream via Pandora. From what I've heard, which was the majority of the album Ashanti "shat" on the album. This week Ashanti has been promoting through the Internet conducting interviews with famed blogs and speaking on her falling out with Murder Inc, G-Unit, and her rivalry with Beyonce. On Beyonce, Ashanti says her rivalry with Beyonce was always "friendly&q…

Robin Thicke & Paula Patton Separated, KeKe Wyatt To Release New EP

Image
Hey y'all! Did you all hear the news regarding Robin Thicke and Paula Patton? The famed couple is officially separating and released a statement to the public yesterday. I think many people saw this coming or knew there was discord in the marriage. Last Summer there were rumors going around that Robin Thicke was cheating. There were also rumors about his alleged drug use. I'm sure those things are some of the factors that contributed towards the couple separating. Awww poor Robin and Paula. They definitely made a good looking couple!

And in other music news...KeKe Wyatt of R&B Divas Atlanta fame is dropping a new EP to be released this April. Stay tuned for more info regarding that as it becomes available.

Image
Hey y'all! There's a rumor going around that Janet Jackson and her new husband may be headed for divorce. Allegedly Janet has confided in a few friends including her Mother regarding how unhappy she is in her marriage. This is Janet's third marriage and if the rumors are true it will be her third divorce. Say it ain't so!

In other news..Chris Brown is said to release his long awaited album X on May 5, his birthday. That means X will be released on a Monday and not the traditional Tuesday that most releases are released. X will feature a bevy of appearances including Rihanna, Wiz Khalifa, Brandy, Kelly Rowland, The Game, French Montana, Lil' Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and more. Do you all think that Chris Brown will release his new album on May 5 or continue to be in his own way with his long list of troubles? I guess we shall see soon. I will say that Loyal featuring Lil' Wayne & French Montana is one of my favorite songs right now. Depsite all his troubles Chris…

Trey Songz Reveals 'Trigga' Album Release Date

Image
Hey y'all! Trey Songz has revealed that his new album Trigga will arrive in stores on July 1. That's pretty far considering he's been dropping a bevy of songs and remixes. I guess this is what Trey usually does though when I think about it. He drops a lot of songs, remixes, and mixtapes prior to the release of his new albums. You all ready for a new Trey Songz album?

Chris Brown Sued For $3 Million Dollars

Hey y'all! It looks as if Chris Brown just can't catch a break. Read below about his latest run in. 
Chris Brown is being sued by the guy who claims the rapper berated him with the words, "I ain't down with that gay s***" and then beat him and broke his nose. Parker Adams claims in his new, $3 million lawsuit .... he was outside the W Hotel in D.C. last October when Brown went nuts on him. This is the same incident for which Brown is currently being prosecuted for misdemeanor assault. Brown has denied any misdeeds and we're told he claims Adams was the aggressor, trying to strongarm his way on his tour bus. Adams is suing both Brown and Christopher Hollosy -- Brown's bodyguard. Adams wants $1 million from each of them for his injuries, and another $500K from each for punitive damages, to teach them a lesson. http://www.tmz.com/2014/02/20/chris-brown-lawsuit-3-million-washington-dc/#ixzz2ttbRfFNi

Sevyn Streeter, Beyonce To Release New Singles

Image
Hey y'all! Sevyn Streeter is releasing nEXt as the newest single from her EP Call Me Crazy But...I'm not a big fan of Sevyn but much success to her. It Won't Stop was and still is very huge on Urban and Pop radio.

In other single news Beyonce is releasing Partition as the newest single from her platinum album Beyonce released back in December. If you recall Busta Rhymes and Azealia Banks did a remix to Partition that was later taken off the internet due to copyright infringement. That boggles me because there's all these unofficial remixes and renditions of Drunk in Love. But I digress.

Pharrell Readies New Album, Chris Brown Featured On New Single

Image
Hey y'all! Pharrell and Columbia Records, his new record label are wasting no time capitalizing off the buzz that Pharrell has had within the last year. The singer, songwriter and producer will release his new album G I R L on March 3. The 10 track album will feature the hit single Happy. Though I'm not a huge fan of the song Happy I'm a Pharrell fan so I will be checking the album out. This is already shaping up to a be a good year for music. A lot of my faves are back and releasing new music so I couldn't be happier.

In other music news...Chris Brown will be featured on the proposed first single for Meek Mill's new album. The rapper recently announced his guest list on the album including Rihanna. Chris may be going through a lot mentally and emotionally but one thing is for sure, his pockets aren't hurting.

Joe To Release New Album This Summer

Image
Hey y'all! Joe is back with a new album Bridges. The album's first single is Love & Sex Part 2 featuring Kelly Rowland. The video has been released. I just never got around to posting the video because honestly I've been sick and lazy.

J-Lo To Star In New Movie

Image
Hey y'all! J-Lo is keeping busy not only with her music career but also her movie career. The famed entertainer will star alongside Viola Davis in Mothers of Lost Children. The film follows two women who avenge the death of their children. The film is being described as Thelma & Louise meets Fight Club. Sounds interesting? Look for the film in late 2014 or early 2015.

J-Lo Hooks Up With Big Sean, Trey Songz Announces New Album

Image
Hey y'all! J-Lo was recently spotted on set filming a top secret or not so top secret video with Big Sean, Tyga, and French Montana. As we all know J-Lo has been working on a new album and she's gone back to her Urban roots. Her new album has already spawned the songs Girls and Same Girl. You all loving J-Lo's return to Urban music or do you think she should stick with the upbeat dance music she's been churning out? I could care less either way as long as the music is good. I do prefer Urban J-Lo over the dance mess.

In other music news...Trey Songz has revealed that his new album Trigga will be released on June 30. The singer can currently be heard on a variety of songs including the Mariah Carey collabo Your Mine(Eternal) Remix,Ordinary feat. Young Jeezy, NaNa, and Looking Ass Nigga. U all ready for a new Trey Songz album?

Image
Hey y'all! Ms. LeToya Luckett, who can currently be seen on VH1's Single Ladies is currently in the studio. The singer is working with Future for her new album Until Then due hopefully later this year. You all excited for a new album from LeToya?

In other music news...Rihanna has revealed that she was damn near broke back in 2009 just when her star was rising. Due to mismanaging of her money, she sued some of her former accountants and handlers. Now the singer is more hands on when it comes to the managing of her money and assures that she won't be going broke again! Rihanna is currently working on a new album which will likely be released either this Summer or this Winter.

T-Pain Calls Out Rappers Failing To Work With Frank Ocean

Image
Hey y'all! T-Pain is speaking out against some unnamed rappers who won't work with Frank Ocean! First of all I don't think Frank Ocean is hurting in the money dept. He gets called on to appear on songs from Jay Z and Kanye, two of the biggest rappers in the world. Who needs these other rappers when he has Jay and Kanye calling him. I'm just saying. But anyway, I was supposed to save my rant for the end. So what do you all think? Do you think Hip Hop is and will always be homophobic or will they give in eventually?

Mariah To Premiere New Song, Ashanti To Premiere New Video

Image
Hey y'all! Based on the news I got for you all today, it seems as if next week is premiere week. It looks like Mariah will be debuting her new single Be Mine next week on The View. Be Mine is the newest single from Mariah's upcoming album The Art of Letting Go which currently has no release date. Let's just hope that Be Mine doesn't end up like The Art of Letting Go, the single. Remember when Mariah released the song and the response was rather lukewarm and plans to release the single were canned. On a much lighter note Mariah will perform at this year's BET Honors alongside Tamar Braxton, Janelle Monae and others. Honorees include Aretha Franklin, Ice Cube, and Berry Gordy. All I know is Mariah better deliver with this new song and the accompanying live performances. But as we know Mariah's live performances are pretty hit and miss these days.

In other music news...I'm reading Ashanti will finally release the video for her single I Got It featuring Rick R…

Rihanna Back In The Studio, Missy Collaborates With Faith Evans

Image
Hey y'all! It comes as no surprise that Rihanna is back in the studio. The singer has logged in some studio time with hit maker Alex Da Kid(worked with Nicki Minaj). A new Rihanna album is due later this year. I think we all were shocked when Rihanna didn't release a new studio album last year as she usually releases every year. Maybe the break in between albums was needed. Don't plan on waiting too long though. Rihanna is Def Jam's cash cow!

Speaking of new albums...Missy Elliott says we may have to wait a little while longer for her album but she has collaborated with Faith Evans on her new album Incomparable due later this year. Missy and Faith has collaborated in the past on Faith's Burning Up Remix.

Ashanti & Nelly Back Together

Image
Hey y'all! Are Ashanti and Nelly back together? Well that's what the blogs are saying and even Wendy Williams. The two were spotted together at several Grammy parties and only added fuel to the fire. Ashanti subliminally addressed what many may of tweeted her about saying "it was just a party y'all lol". But that still doesn't answer the question. Nelly has recently moved on from Ashanti(or has he) with The Game actress Tae Hackford. Hmm something tells me that all this talk is press for Ashanti's new album BraveHeart dropping on March 4. Keep em talking Shanti! So what do you all think, do you think Ashanti and Nelly are back together or just reunited with a friendly hug and "how you doing" at the parties?

Album Cover: Ashanti - BraveHeart

Check Ashanti out the cover of her new album BraveHeart. According to UBG, this is the official album cover. The album features the new red hot single I Got It featuring Rick Ross. BraveHeart will be released on March 4. Mark your calendars. We're only one month away to #BraveHeart I'm excited! So what do you all think of the new official album cover for BraveHeart? http://urbanbridgez.com/ubgblog/2014/02/04/ub-first-look-ashantis-official-braveheart-album-artwork

Timbaland To Produce Jodeci, Diddy & Cassie NOT Engaged

Image
Hey y'all! It looks like Timbaland will be producing a new Jodeci album. Say what?? The 90s quartet are currently working on a new album. So what do you all feel about that? I'm all here for Timbo but I'm not sure about Jodeci as a group. Only time will tell.

In other news..it was being reported that Diddy engaged to longtime girlfriend Cassie but turns out that was just a rumor. Diddy and Cassie have been together since 2007. Diddy did however buy Cassie a huge ring which started the speculation. Diddy and Cassie most recently collaborated on Cassie's mixtape Rockabye Baby released last year. Hey! I was excited for the two but something tells me that Diddy might end up marrying Cassie when its all said and done, unless another P.Y.T.(pretty young thing) catches his eye. I don't know though, seven years is a long time. So you never know.
