Music Feed: August Alsina's Craziest Moments...Thus Far

It's funny that August Alsina hasn't been on the music scene long and he has already gained notoriety for his lewd acts. The outspoken singer has feuded with Trey Songz, hung himself with rope, cursed out concert goers, and even cancelled tour dates due to slow sales, but not in that order. Get all the dirt on August Alsina before he's a washed up star. Trey Songz feud August Alsina and Trey Songz were butt buddies for a time. Then all of a sudden their relationship took a turn for the worse. August publicly blasted Trey Songz for being cocky when Trey allegedly took over a concert they were headlining, I believe that's the story. August appeared on 106 & Park and when asked about Trey Songz, he lashed out on hosts Bow Wow and Keisha Chante. When Trey Songz was asked about the beef, Trey said he decided to stay mute on it and didn't wanna go back and forth in the media with August. Understandable! Cancelled Tour Dates Ticket sales were slow for a recent August…

August Alsina Loses Hat At Concert, Threatens Concert Goers

August AssAlsina is at it again! During a recent concert performance the cocky singer stage dived into the crowd only to lose his hat. When the singer reemerged on the stage without his hat, he went into a fury cursing the concert goers out, threatening to abruptly end the show and lock everyone inside. I'm not sure if he got the hat back or not. One of those girls probably got ahold of the hat and probably didn't wanna give it back. I mean girls are crazy about this guy even though he is a complete ass. Hell, my 15 year old niece loves him.

Ray J Arrested, Meek Mill & KeKe Palmer Dating

UNDER ARREST: I woke up this morning to news that Ray J had been arrested. For what exactly? Well it turns out that he got into it with the Beverly Hills police and spit on them. Ray J was partying it up in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and started acting a plum fool when he was told to leave. Apparently when asked to leave he didn't wanna leave and the nigga in Ray J came out and police were called. The rest of the story went downhill from there. Poor Ray J. I'm wondering where the VH1 cameras present while this went down since Ray J is supposed to be on Love & Hip Hop L.A. Oh they say a girl was present with Ray J but she was unknown. Could it be Teairra Mari? Now I think the media knows her somewhat or one of Ray J's new side chicks. More on this as this story develops. NEW COUPLE: Rapper Meek Mill and singer/actress KeKe Palmer are reportedly dating. There was a picture of the pair with friends at a club then later at a studio. Meek previewed a new song and hinted tha…

Producers Speak on New Rihanna Album, Mary J. Blige Drops New Single

RIH RIH: It's refreshing to hear something regarding music with Rihanna. Usually we are hearing about her checking someone on Twitter or we're seeing her come out of a club. Well the production duo of Stargate(worked with Ne-Yo) have revealed that Rihanna is focused more than ever on her new music. They also revealed that her vocals are in top form. There is still no word on when we can expect new music from Rihanna. But if I had to take a wild guess, she may drop new music around Thanksgiving, the time in which she typically drops new albums. THINK LIKE A MAN TOO: Mary J. Blige has been tapped to headline and perform new music for the soundtrack to the new music Think Like A Man Too. The movie which stars Kevin Hart features Mary on the album's first single, Suitcase. Other guests on the album include Pharrell and Kanye West. Mary's contribution to the Think Like A Man Too soundtrack is the vein of how Whitney Houston carried The Bodyguard album or similar to Aretha …

First Love is the new single and video from J-Lo's new album A.K.A. due June 17.

Jagged Edge Returns, R&B Divas L.A. Gets Premiere Date

A JAGGED ERA: Jagged Edge is set to make their return to music. It's funny because just the other day the group popped up in my mind. I had wondered what had become of them. Well now my questions have been answered. Brothers, Brian and Brandon Casey have wrote the album's first single Hope which premieres tomorrow. The song was produced by Bryan Michael Cox(worked with Usher). Hope will appear on Jagged Edges' new album JE Heartbreak Too, a sequel to their 2000 hit album JE Heartbreak. You all looking forward to hearing new music from Jagged Edge or nah? R&B DIVAS L.A.: Yesterday during the newest episode of R&B Divas Atlanta, TV One unveiled a preview of R&B Divas L.A. which will premiere on Wednesday July 16. As previously announced the new season features new additions by the way of Chrisette Michele and Leela James. In the preview clip, Chrisette and Leila are seen chopping it up and discussing an unknown R&B Diva who is causing drama and Lil' Mo s…

Mariah Carey's New Album Sales Fall Flat, K. Michelle Vs. Perez Hilton

CAREY ON: Mariah Carey's plans to release her new album a la Beyoncé may of fallen flat according to early record reports. Mimi's new album Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse is said to debut with 65K copies in its first full week. Note that the album is only available via iTunes at the moment. Next week the album will be available in physical form. Maybe the record sales will increase next week or stay the same. With no real hit single this go round, Mariah may take a little while to go Gold if she does at all. I heard the new album in snippet form and its not bad from what I hear. It's nothing I'm rushing out to buy or download for that matter but I still love Mimi nonetheless. PEREZ VS. K. MICHELLE: Yesterday I reported how K. Michelle sounded off on Iggy Azalea and her "Memphis" sound. Well blogger Perez Hilton took offense to K's comments and the two exchanged a series of digs and jabs via Twitter. There is no word yet if Iggy has responded to a…

Whitney Houston's Family Mad At Lifetime, K. Michelle Goes in on Iggy Azalea

HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM: The family of Whitney Houston is threatening to sue the Lifetime network for producing an upcoming Whitney Houston biopic. The biopic was to be directed by Houston's former co-star Angela Bassett. Houston's family feels that Whitney's life story warrants a big screen adaptation and I agree. What do you all think? HELL MICHELLE: K. Michelle had some choice words for new rapper Iggy Azalea. The outspoken singer criticized Iggy whose from Australia of sounding like a Memphis rapper. K who hails from Memphis makes a good point. I always wondered how and why Iggy sounds the way she sounds. Maybe she's just influenced by Southern Rap. I mean after all her mentor is T.I. so that could be a possibility. It seems Ms. Iggy can't catch a break these days. Just last week Tyler The Creator made headlines when he said that Iggy "stinks". Ouch! I'm thinking maybe she just ain't give up the pussy to him so he wanted to blast her in pu…

Mary J. Blige Releasing New Single Next Week, T.I. & Floyd Mayweather Fight

MARY MARY: Mary J. Blige will release a new song in the coming days. It is the first single to be released from the upcoming soundtrack to Think Like A Man Too. There is word that Mary J. will receive top billing on the soundtrack as if it were her own studio album. Mary teased fans with a snippet of her new untitled single. FIGHT CLUB: Early Sunday morning T.I. swung at famed boxer Floyd Mayweather at Fatburger on the Vegas strip. The swing resulted in a melee that was caught on tape. The fight in question resulted from T.I.'s wife Tiny hanging out with Mayweather at one of his events in Vegas. Apparently T.I. was hosting an event not far from where Floyd threw his. Tiny appeared at Floyd's event and not T.I.'s. No surprise there right? I say that because its been documented that there's been trouble in paradise between T.I. and Tiny for awhile. Tiny hasn't wore her wedding ring in months. T.I. was pictured with some groupie girl on Mother's Day so it's b…

Whitney Houston Biopic Directed By Angela Bassett

Interesting news. Actress Angela Bassett will direct an upcoming biopic about the late great Whitney Houston. The biopic set to air on Lifetime in 2015 will chronicle the rise and fall of Whitney Houston, her rocky relationship with Bobby Brown, and her drug use. There is no word on who will be cast as Whitney. If you all recall Whitney starred alongside Angela Bassett in Waiting To Exhale back in 1997. I think its great that Angela is directing Whitney's biopic. Speaking of biopics Aaliyah's story is finally coming to the big screen very soon. I heard that an actress had been cast as the late great Aaliyah. I believe they will do a theatrical release of Aaliyah's biopic then again it could always be a made for TV movie which has been the big thing lately with biopics.

Throwback Video: Tracie Spencer - It's All About You (Not About Me)

In 1999 Tracie Spencer returned after several years out of the spotlight with It's All About You(Not About Me). The song appeared on her 1999 album Tracie. What Tracie is up to these days, no one knows but I wouldn't mind her coming back to bless us with new music.

Janet Jackson To Release New Music Soon, Charlie Sheen Blasts Rihanna

PLANET JANET: It was just revealed that Janet Jackson has new music on the way very soon. One of her long time collaborators Bobby Ross Avila, who works very close with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis broke the news via Twitter. Are you all excited for a new Janet Jackson album? I know I am! SEEING PINK: I'm sure you all don't find it surprising that Rihanna is involved in yet another feud. Though she isn't the one who initiated it but still. This time actor Charlie Sheen has called the famed singer out for refusing to meet his girlfriend at a restaurant. Apparently both stars were in the restaurant and Charlie arranged for Rihanna and his girlfriend to meet. Rihanna turned down the invitation as she was dining and obviously didn't want to be bothered. Of course Charlie Sheen didn't respond well to this and voiced his frustrations at Rihanna on Twitter. Rihanna responded in typical Rihanna fashion describing Charlie as an "old queen with his diapers in a bunch&qu…

Ciara Gives Birth, Toni Braxton Releases Bio

Baby Love: Ciara has finally given birth! The singer delivered a 9lbs 10oz baby boy named Future Zahir Wilburn. Yes! The newborn baby was named after his rapper father's stage name.

Un-Break Her Heart: Today singer and reality TV star Toni Braxton released her biography titled Un-Break My Heart. The singer appeared on The View today and promoted her book by having a book signing at Barnes & Nobles.

Love & Dirty Money: As rumored months ago former Dirty Money singer and band mate Kaleena appeared on Monday's episode of Love & Hip Hop. The singer was introduced as a friend of cast mate Karlie Redd. The singer mixed and mingled with Karlie and Rasheeda at Karlie's makeup line launch. We will have to keep watching to see what messiness Kaleena brings to the al…

Stevie J Arrested, R. Kelly's Ex-Wife Divorced, August Alsina Cancels Tour

Love & Jailhouse Rock: Stevie J from Love & Hip Hop fame was arrested on Friday for drug trafficking. The famed reality TV star is said to face a judge on Monday. Hollywood Exes: R. Kelly's ex-wife Drea Kelly is an ex-wife again! The ex-wife of R. Kelly turned reality TV star wed her boyfriend of six months Brian and is now divorcing him after only two months of marriage. We were recently introduced to Brian via Hollywood Exes. The divorce stems from Brian being called out for asking women for money to help pay of debts and several other bills. Well the tweets were shared with Drea who at first was in denial but finally woke up and smelled the coffee. Good for her! Cancelled Tour: August Alsina recently cancelled a tour that only sold 2,000 tickets. The cocky singer figured he was too good or perhaps too big to perform her only 2,000 people. Shit! He should be lucky 2,000 people want to see him in concert. Not only has August offended his fans but the locals as well in whi…

Solange, Jay Z, Beyonce Release Statement, Rihanna Ridicules Fan

Solange, Jay Z and Beyoncé has finally released a statement regarding the now infamous elevator fight. To sum up the statement, basically the Knowles-Carter family wants everyone to respect their privacy and to know that they are over the ordeal(fight). Fair enough! Rihanna is under fire for ridiculing a fan who wore a low budget version of a gown Rihanna previously wore. Rihanna posted of herself in the gown compared to that of the girl. We all know that Rihanna is notorious for posting shocking pictures and commentary on both Instagram and Twitter. So this is not too surprising to me but it is in bad taste if you ask me. Speaking of Rihanna I saw something that said her and Drake broke up again. I really didn't think they were dating again. I figured they were just fucking again. What do you all think?

BET Awards Nominations Announced, Beyonce & Jay Z Marriage In Trouble?

Chris Rock will be hosting the BET Awards! The live awards telecast will air on Sunday June 29 on BET. The nominations have been released. Drake, Beyoncé, and Jay Z lead the nominees. Other nominees include Rihanna, Tamar Braxton, K. Michelle, Chris Brown and more. There is no word yet on who any of the performers and presenters are but expect to learn more award details in the coming days. In the meantime you can click here to check out the full list of nominees. And days after we were all shocked at the elevator fight between Jay Z and Solange new details have emerged regarding the state of affairs between the Knowles-Carters family. I guess I shouldn't say details but allegations and rumors. People are now question whether there is trouble in paradise between Jay Z and Beyoncé. I said this yesterday. Though the couple have put on a brave front at the Heat game and beyond. It still remains to be seen or heard what the real problem at hand is. Then there is the thing with Beyonc…

Artist Interview: Trey Songz speaks on August Alsina

We've all heard about the fallout between friends August Alsina and Trey Songz. Now Trey Songz speaks out on August Alsina. Check it out!

Solange & Jay Z Spotted in High End Jewelry Shop

So here we go with another Jay Z and Solange story. This time the pair wasn't fighting. They were out browsing in a high-end jewelry store. Perhaps looking for a gift for Beyoncé? This is all according to TMZ. They went on to say the pair didn't speak but browsed around with Mr. Flawless, the jeweler. I say maybe they were looking for a gift for Beyoncé because she's caught in the middle of whatever debacle was going on in the elevator last weekend. I did hear that Beyoncé was caught at one of the b-ball games and wasn't wearing her wedding ring but the next time she made sure she had it on. So that begs the question, is there trouble in paradise? There are a lot of unanswered questions and some we'll never know and maybe some we might hear about in upcoming album material. I always say if you really want to know what's going on with an artist, just listen to their music. We all know that Beyoncé and Jay Z are relatively private people probably more so at Beyon…

Solange Deletes Pictures of Beyonce, Kelly Rowland Ties The Knot

So people are still reeling from the video footage of Solange allegedly attacking Jay Z. Well now news comes from E! and other media outlets saying that Solange has deleted every picture of Beyoncé on her Instagram except one. Why one? No one knows but obviously the picture means something to Solange. What went wrong between Jay Z and Solange? No one knows! The Standard Hotel, where the surveillance video was captured sent out a statement saying their investigating(yeah right!). We all know that siblings fall out and whatever the underlying issue is I'm sure it will be resolved in time. There is speculation as to what really happened. There is word that Solange had a heated exchange earlier in the evening with Rachael Roy. So was Solange drunk, wilding out or did Jay Z say something that was foul and offended Solange? Maybe one day we'll find out. If anyone will come forward and say anything its Solange. Don't expect Jay Z or Beyoncé to speak on it. If anything Jay Z will…

Video: Jay Z Attacked By Solange In Elevator

It went down last weekend in the elevator. It was sister in law vs. brother in law. Why? We don't know but something pissed Solange off as she lunges at Jay Z. Check the shocking video that has everyone talking.

Music Video: Trey Songz - SmartPhones

SmartPhones is the new single and video from Trey Songz. It will appear on his new album Trigga due July 1(which is shown in the video) as well. July 1 is still awhile from now but still video which also serves as a mini movie can tie fans over until the album's release.

Popular Comedian Outs Famous Celebrities

Hey y'all! Earlier tonight(Saturday) I had the pleasure of getting free tickets to check out a popular comedian. I won't say his name though I'm sure he wouldn't care if I did but I'll spare him. Anyway during his stage act, he gave the audience some tea on some of the guys in the industry who are umm 'gay'. He spoke on how a lot of Hollywood is gay which I think we're all aware of. He mentioned Ne-Yo and how he is always twirling which is very true. Ne-Yo has been dogged by gay rumors since the beginning of his career and the rumors live on. See it doesn't matter how many kids you have or how many women you bed. Once people believe that your gay there's really nothing you can do to change that even if you are not gay. Another name that was mentioned which I heard about before was Jaheim. We all know Jaheim right? He's the R&B singer signed to Atlantic Records and is known for the single Just In Case. It's funny the comedian brought…

Chris Brown Sentenced To 131 Days In Jail

So Chris Brown finally got his sentencing today. It turns out that the troubled singer will serve an additional 131 days in jail. This stems from his violating his probation on the Rihanna case and freely admitting to it awhile back. It's being said that Chris will likely not serve all the days and may get off early. Well won't that be something? If it is indeed true hopefully he will get his together and stay out of jail once and for all!

Usher Collaborates With Chris Brown On New Album

Usher is collaborating with Chris Brown on his new upcoming untitled album due in September. The album features the first single and video Good Kisser. I think people have been wanting Chris and Usher to collaborate for awhile and they've finally got their wish. Now as far as a video happening, don't hold your breath! Usher says he hasn't spoken to Chris since he's been in jail. Speaking of Chis Brown word is he's engaged to longtime girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Since it seems like Chris is never getting out of jail, maybe they'll get married in jail. What do you think?

Album Cover: Mariah Carey - Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse (Japan Cover)

Hail Mariah! Mariah Carey releases yet another album cover for her upcoming album Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse. Though this cover is for the Japan release, I think it should of been the album's initial cover. I admire the simplicity of the cover and it doesn't feature Mariah all photoshopped down as usual. Anyway Mariah's new album is available for pre-order now on iTunes and will be available on May 27. So what do you all think of the Japan album cover? Yay or nay? 

Artist Interview: Mariah Carey Talks Dem Babies On 'David Letterman'

Mariah Carey reminds us how kooky she is and how much she rambles on in this interview from last night on The David Letterman Show. The singer briefly talks about 'dem babies', her new album, and more. Check it out! P.S. I can't help but notice how much fuller Mariah is in the face lately. Her current body doesn't match that of what her new album cover entails. We all know Mariah loves to use excessive photoshop on her photos especially her album covers. The only other explanation as to why Mariah doesn't look the way she does now on her album cover is because she may of shot it a long time ago when she was a little more fit. Either way I still love Mariah, I'm just saying!

John Legend Scores First #1 Pop Hit With 'All Of Me'

John Legend scores his first #1 Pop hit with All Of Me. It is his latest single from his album Love In The Future released this past August. The song knocks Pharrell's Happy out of the top spot. John Legend's previous hits including Green Light featuring Andre 3000 and Ordinary People which both peaked at #24 on the Pop charts. Congrats to you John!

Rihanna Signed To Roc Nation?, J-Lo to be Honored At Billboard Awards

Rihanna is rumored to have signed to Roc Nation! Roc Nation currently manages Rihanna so it makes perfect sense if this rumor is indeed true.

J-Lo will be honored at The Billboard Awards on May 18. Teyana Taylor will release a new single Maybe featuring Pusha T on June 19.

Tiny Denies Divorce Rumors Again, K. Michelle vs. Tamar Again

So Friday I was out and about and missed the Arsenio show! The guest was Tiny Harris who sported no wedding ring during her second TV appearance. Her first TV appearance without her wedding ring was on Wendy and you know Wendy questioned her about it. Tiny insisted that her and T.I. are still indeed married! Sure your married but is there trouble in paradise? That's the question and its been the question for a minute. Tiny admitted on Wendy a month ago they had a falling out but they were still very much together. So do you think Tiny is telling the truth or simply saving face? How long does your finger stay swollen? Any nurses or doctors wanna comment on that? Anywho..the war of words between reality TV stars K. Michelle and Tamar Braxton rages on. The two are still trading insults towards one another on Instagram and Twitter. I mean really ladies? Enough already! This beef is stale and very old. Both ladies are a success! Why is that never enough? I think K. Michelle and Tamar&#…

Ashanti Mentioned In War of Words Between Nelly & Floyd Mayweather

Ashanti is caught in the middle of some drama once again. This time its between her ex boyfriend Nelly and boxer Floyd Mayweather. Nelly called Mayweather out on Instagram revealing that Mayweather hit on Ashanti and flew her out to Michigan for one of his boxing matches. Nelly says he wasn't invited and is confused over Mayweather's claims that he and Nelly are friends. If that's not enough Mayweather is airing plenty of dirty laundry first starting with his ex as well as Nelly. He claims that Nelly borrowed a huge sum of money from Ashanti to support a rumored drug habit. This isn't the first time I heard of Nelly have money and drug problems. Interestingly enough Ashanti has a new song on her album titled, Count which I always thought was in reference to Nelly. After all Ashanti states that Braveheart is her most personal album to date. Ashanti hasn't spoken out regarding any of the accusations but just last week a woman Nelly was romancing had also been hangin…
