Chris Brown Dragged Out of Club, BET Awards '14 Ratings Down

DRAG RACE: Chris Brown had to be dragged out the club last night after the BET Awards '14 festivities. The singer was noticeably under the influence of something, what I don't know. I'll go out on a limb and say he was simply wasted. He put one hell of a performance last night so why not go out and celebrate. His boo thang Karreuche Tran drived him home last night! BET ON IT: While we're on the subject of the BET Awards '14 they say that ratings were down from last year. 7.7 million people tuned in to last night's overlong award show. I think a little over 8 million people watched last year. Personally I think BET should trying prerecording their award show one year. They will cut all the noticeable mistakes that happen throughout the night. But then again what do I know!?!?

Beyonce The Most Powerful Celeb, Bobbi Kristina Mad At Angela Bassett

GIRL POWER: Beyoncé is the most powerful woman in the world! As if that's a surprise. That's according to a new published report from Forbes magazine. The famed singer made $115 million dollars between June 2013 to June 2014. You can thank her massively successful The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, numerous endorsements, her double platinum self-titled album and her platinum single Drunk In Love! Go Bee! ME & BOBBI KRIS: Bobbi Kristina is mad at Angela Bassett for not casting her in the biopic for Whitney Houston airing on Lifetime. I thought the Houston Family didn't want this movie made, well everyone but Bobbi Kris since she wants to play her Mother. Sounds a little odd to me but Bobbi Kris went as far as to demean Angela Bassett saying she was "manly". Ouch! 

Music Feed: BET Awards '14 Recap

If you missed the BET Awards '14 you missed a lot. But don't fret I got you covered. You can check out a list of the winners, presenters, performers, and audience sightings. I will say the women brought it with their fashion choices this year. I think many of the women looked radiant. A lot of women opted for white(Adrienne Bailon, Ashanti, Tamar). A lot of women also sported jaw dropping cleavage. The performers were top notch of course. Chris Brown returned to the BET stage in top form. Nicki Minaj threw shade at what many thought was a dig at Iggy Azalea. Why though? Is Nicki feeling threatened by the success of the new rising rap star? Beyoncé and Jay Z did a pre-taped performance. I think people were actually thinking they were there in attendance though. Silly people. We got a taste of the 90s when male R&B groups Silk, Color Me Badd, and Troop came out. Where was Shai when you needed them? Something tells me BET probably tried to get some other groups together but …

Music Feed: BET Awards '14 Red Carpet Pre-Show Recap

If you missed the BET Awards '14 red carpet preshow you didn't miss much. I'm just being honest. There were a lot of appearances on the red carpet which you can check out below with a list of red carpet performers as well. What I did notice, as far as the fashion was concerned there were a lot of trends on the red carpet. One trend was that many singers wore white ensembles. Another was that there was a fair amount of jaw dropping cleavage. Jewelry always remains an important accessory when on the red carpet and we saw that on the likes of many of the men on the red carpet. Check out the rest of what you missed below and if I feel up to it I may do a recap on the BET Awards '14 show. Hosts: Adrienne Bailon(show: The Real), Shad Moss aka Bow Wow, Keisha Chante, Lloyd Boston(stylist) Performers: Rich Homie Quan, Tinashe, Yo Gotti, Snootie Wild, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, French Montana, Juicy J, YG, Red Carpet Appearances/Interviews: MC Lyte, Ashanti, Pharrell, DeSean Jackson,…

Zendaya Coleman Drops Out of Aaliyah Biopic, Shots Rang Out at BET Awards Festivities

DROP THIS: Zendaya Coleman has dropped out of the Aaliyah biopic! The Disney star reportedly quit after receiving a negative feedback from Aaliyah's family and fans who petitioned the movie's production. It is now being reported that Rihanna is in talks to play Aaliyah. All I know is if people are unsatisfied with that choice and Rihanna gets the role, she will have no problem letting everyone have it! Rihanna will tell a person off very quickly! SHOTS FIRED: Shots rang out this weekend during the BET Awards '14 festivities. One man was shot and four were injured when cops were called to the scene at 5:17 a.m. Let's just hope that everyone else stays safe and the BET Awards goes on without a hitch. BIO-RHYTHM: Lifetime is now planning a biopic on Aretha Franklin. The famed singer wants Jennifer Hudson or Audra McDonald to play her. Aretha recently met up with Lifetime producers to discuss the film. 

K. Michelle Working on New Album..Marsha Ambrosius Speaks Out on Gay Rumors

K. Michelle is firing up her new album. The singer has logged studio time with the likes of J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League(worked with Trina), Sevyn Streeter(worked with Brandy), Stacy Barthe(worked with John Legend), and Harvey Mason Jr.(worked with Toni Braxton). Are you all ready for a new album from K. Michelle? Marsha Ambrosius says "I love penis". This comes on the heels of rumors of her sexuality. For a long time the rumor has been that Marsha is a lesbian. It was even rumored that she was in a relationship with her former Floetry bandmate. I think for awhile I thought the same thing but then I thought well maybe she isn't. At the end of the day who really cares. I think Marsha makes pretty good music for the most part. Though I'm not too happy with her latest music. Hopefully her album Friends & Lovers due July 15 will be banging. 

Jay Z Under Fire For Affair..Trey Songz Surprises Nicki Minaj with Flowers

DIVORCE COURT: The Beyoncé & Jay Z divorce rumors continue to linger on. Reports are now saying that Jay Z has been having an affair with singer Mya. If you recall the two collaborated the hit song Best Of Me Remix. There was some talk then that the pair had been romantically involved but then both were single. The report also goes on to say that Jay Z has been taking care of Mya for the last few years. What do you think? Is there some truth to the Jay Z cheating rumors or nah? I say this because these rumors have legs, like its a story that is not going away. Of course this all comes on the heels of Beyoncé & Jay Z's On The Run tour. MUSIC BITS:Trey Songz surprised Nicki Minaj with a bunch of flowers. The singer was thanking Nicki for the guest appearance she provided for his latest album Trigga due July 1. Christina Milian and her fiancé Jas Prince has broke up. The rumor is that cheating was involved. Christina sure knows how to pick 'em doesn't she? Aaliyah&#…

Album Review: Pharrell - G I R L

G I R L is the debut album from Pharrell on the Columbia Records label. G I R L features the #1 Pop hit Happy also from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. Pharrell was riding high with multiple hit songs when this album was released, Blurred Lines and Get Lucky featuring Daft Punk were just some of them. He also landed production credits on high profile albums from Beyoncé & Jay Z among others. It had been a few years since Pharrell had released a proper studio album and now we have G I R L. I admit to be a big Pharrell fan but for some reason I wasn't excited about this album. Maybe it was because Happy was a little underwhelming to me and I got tired of it very quickly. Well skip a few months from the album's initial release and here we have an album review from yours truly. I found myself in desperate need of new music and I decided to give Pharrell's album a listen. I was pleasantly surprised by how upbeat and sexy the album was which works in Pharrell's favor. He…

Solange Celebrates Birthday & Engagement...Trey Songz New Album Preview

BIRTHDAY GIRL: Happy Birthday to Solange. The singer sister of Beyoncé turns 28. The singer is engaged to marry her 51 year old boyfriend Alan Ferguson. Hey! I had no idea her boyfriend was 51 years old. Well go head Solange and can't wait to hear your new album. I just know that its going to be good. SAMPLE THIS: Trey Songz will release his new album Trigga on July 1. Click here to get an exclusive preview of the same recycled songs Trey's been doing for awhile now. Don't get me wrong I like Trey but I do feel like his latest songs with the exception of Smart Phones have been retreads of his earlier hits. Just saying! 

Beyonce & Jay Z In Couples Therapy...J-Lo Chooses New Single

COUPLES THERAPY: Are Beyoncé and Jay Z in couples therapy? Well that's the story going around about the famed Hip Hop couple. There have been rumors of infidelity in the marriage with Jay Z reportedly having a wandering eye. Hey! You don't say? I think that would be quite messed up if these reports are true. We all got a glimpse of possible trouble in the marriage when the shocking video footage leaked of Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator. Ever since then Beyoncé and Jay Z's relationship has become tabloid fodder. The couple have remained mum on the rumors and are embarking on their first ever joint tour. BOOTY IT IS: Amid looming album sales J-Lo is determined to win. Plans to release the single Booty are underway. The song has already received a possible feedback so there it is. Do you think Booty will be the hit J-Lo needs to get her new album off the ground? Or do you think the album is done already? 

Keyshia Cole To Release New Single...Aaliyah Relationship Explored In Biopic

SHE: Keyshia Cole has revealed a snippet of her new single, She which will be released on Tuesday. It is the newest single being released from Keyshia's new album Point Of No Return due this Summer. Keyshia's last two singles, Rick James and Next Time haven't performed that well but maybe She will be more successful. I guess we shall wait and see. 2ND KELLY: Though its been a lot of upheaval regarding Aaliyah's upcoming biopic for Lifetime, the producer of the movie has spoken. According to Debra Martin Chase, the film will explore Aaliyah's relationship with R. Kelly. If that is not reason enough to watch this movie I'm not sure what else is. Forget everything else. This is the story I want to hear. MUSIC BITS: Omarion and his girlfriend just had a their second baby shower. Wait! I didn't know people had more than one baby shower. And I read that Tyrese was caught trying to get at Lashontae Jennings(Nelly's ex). Whew! Lashontae gets hit on pretty regu…

K. Michelle Mad At BET & Elle Varner...Tamar Braxton Readying New Single

MAD MAD WOMAN: K. Michelle is mad! This time the singer is mad at BET and possibly singer Elle Varner. Apparently BET stole K. Michelle's song or some nonsense. Some cryptic messages have also surfaced where K. may be alluding to her disdain with Elle Varner as well, I'm not sure. I really didn't research the whole story. I only read a tidbit. I do remember Elle and K. being very good friends and working together. I see how long that lasted. More on this story if I'm even interested in learning more about this. This is yet another feud in a long list of feuds that K. Michelle has engaged in. More recently the singer had a beef with Perez Hilton, Iggy Azalea, and Tamar Braxton. Gosh! I wonder who the next casualty will be. TRIPLE THE FUN: Tamar Braxton is ready to drop a new single reportedly. With that new single the singer is on three reality TV shows as well, Braxton Family Values, Tamar & Vince, and The Real. Surely we will get our fair share of Tamar in the co…

J-Lo New Album Tanks..Danity Kane Without a Label Deal

J-LO BLOW: The estimated sales figures for J-Lo's new album A.K.A. are in and they aren't looking too good. Then again I don't think people were expecting much. Sales are estimated to be around 30K units in the album's first week. That's pretty low even for J-Lo. J-Lo has been making the rounds pretty heavy this week so maybe that will help. However she doesn't have a hit single at radio right now and they is what is ultimately hurting her in my opinion. Will J-Lo rebound? More than likely. We all know to never count La Lopez out. RAISING KANE: Many fans were happy with the return of Danity Kane, sans the change in the group's lineup. The former quintet is now a trio. Dawn, Shannon, and Aubrey revealed that even though their new single Lemonade featuring Tyga is a hit on iTunes, they don't currently have a recording contract. If that's the case the girls might as well be independent. They released Lemonade independently so why not continue in that …

Ameriie Speaks On New Albums..BET Awards Performers Revealed

Ameriie revealed that she has two albums in the works and she's now indie. Indie seems to be the way to go these days anyway. Her first album Cymatika has been in the works for awhile and will be out by years end as well as Bili. The singer gushed about two collaborations from females that's she's mum about at the moment. Ameriie recently released her new single All I Want which features Ameriie's signature sound. Nicki Minaj, Jhene Aiko, and August Alsina has been added as performers for this year's BET Awards airing on Sunday June 29. They will join previously announced performers Jennifer Hudson, Lil' Wayne, and Drake. I'm not sure how I feel about August Alsina performing. I'm just hoping he doesn't act a fool as usual.

Beyonce & Jay Z Tour Selling..Kelly Rowland Doing A Visual Album

RUN OF THE MIL: Amid reports that their tour was not selling so well, a report has now been published by Billboard that Beyoncé & Jay Z's tour is indeed selling well. It is selling so well that it will be one of the highest grossing tours this years. Well take that! In other Beyoncé news she will return to HBO with a special of performances airing every Sunday before True Blood. The performances were recorded during The Mrs. Carter World Tour which ran for an entire year. COPY CAT: Kelly Rowland says her next album, which she is currently working on with her pregnant belly and all will be a visual album a la Beyoncé's latest offering. She is still in the early stages of the album right now though. I mean are you even excited? I like Kelly Rowland but her albums are hit and miss for me. I like her first two albums though. FAMILY TIES: Aaliyah's family is going as far as to block the use of any of her music in the new Aaliyah biopic for Lifetime. Did you know that singe…

Brandy & Fantasia Working On New Albums

BRAN NU: Brandy is in the early stages of recording a new album. The singer is opting for a more "melancholy" sound as that's her current mood. The singer was speaking in regards to the recent engagement that was called off. In other Brandy news Brandy will appear on "Where Are They Now?" on OWN in the coming weeks. MORE SIDE EFFECTS: Fantasia is working on the follow up to last year's The Side Effects of You. The singer is keeping in tradition of her last record, the rock soul sound she has created. She is working alongside producer Harmony Samuels who helped her helm her last album. In other news: T.I. and Azealia Banks revisited their beef which reached a fever pitch yesterday when T.I. threatened to end Azealia. Ice Cube & Dr. Dre has unveiled the cast for their upcoming movie Straight Outta Compton due next year. Kim Kardashian's nanny says Kim would say that Nori is cuter than Blue Ivy. 

Angie Martinez Resigns...Monifah Gets Married

STEPS DOWN: Angie Martinez has stepped down from her hosting gig on New York's Hot 97 radio station. The radio host/former rapper has been with the radio station for 25 years. She started as an intern before going on to host her own radio show and interviewing everyone from J-Lo to Jay Z. The radio host penned a letter detailing her resignation and how she plans to move on to bigger and better things in life. This is quite shocking to learn and I had no idea Angie has been with Hot 97 for 25 years. R&B DIVA: It's been revealed that R&B Divas Atlanta star Monifah Carter got married back in February. The cameras were rolling for the event which I'm guessing we will see before the current season is over. Monifah invited all the ladies to the wedding and according to reports they were all in attendance. Monifah married her longtime girlfriend Terez in Hawaii. Congrats to the couple! You can catch R&B Divas Atlanta on TV One on Wednesday 10 P.M. EST. 

Aaliyah Biopic Halted By Family...The-Dream Speaks On Abuse Rumors

NO BIOPIC: I reported this before but Aaliyah's family is not happy about plans to make the Aaliyah biopic. The family says Lifetime never contacted them in regards to the movie. So in turn they will do everything they can to block the movie. Like the Houston family, Aaliyah's family feels her story should be one for the big screen. THE ACCUSED: Producer The-Dream has spoke against allegations that he's an abuser. The famed producer simply states that because of his money and clout he's a target. That is true but abuse is a serious matter and people don't just say that if its not true. It would be really vicious of the accuser to have made up such a vile thing. 

Album Cover: Michelle Williams - Journey To Freedom

Check Michelle Williams out as she will take us on her Journey To Freedom, her new album being released on September 9. The album features the first single Say Yes featuring Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. Michelle appeared this morning on ABC's Good Morning America where she revealed the album's cover art. So guys what do you think about Michelle's new album cover? Will you be supporting her on September 9?

Cassie Pregnant..Aaliyah Biopic Petition..Beyonce & Jay Z Tour Drama

Lots of news today! That's always a plus so that means there's a little more to read but its juicy, I promise! I wanted to take time to thank all my readers, visitors, and supporters. Means a lot! Now for the news: BUN IN THE OVEN: Did Diddy(or whatever he's calling himself these days) finally knock up his longtime girlfriend Cassie? Well that's the word on the streets! Cassie posted a picture of herself and later cropped the picture when there was a noticeable bulge in her stomach. Just a few weeks ago Cassie posted a picture with a more toned belly and physique. So what do you all think? Have you seen the photos? Do you think that Cassie is finally pregnant? I guess we will have to wait and see. ROCK THE VOTE: Low and behold a petition has already been filed against those making the Aaliyah biopic. Obviously fans are not happy with the choice of Zendaya Coleman playing the late star. I guess it was just a matter of time before this happened though I didn't think…

India.Arie Comes To The Defense of Comments Made About Blue Ivy's Hair

BLUE MAGIC: Last week it was revealed that there was an outrageous petition going on surrounding Beyoncé's baby Blu's hair. Thousands of people signed the ridiculous petition and many celebrities spoke out as well. Those celebrities included KeKe Wyatt(R&B Divas), Tamar Braxton, and Syleena Johnson(R&B Divas). Of course all ladies caught hell from the Beyhive(Beyoncé's stans). While many may have forgotten what had been said, what Syleena Johnson said has had an everlasting effect. Apparently singer India.Arie got word of what Syleena Johson said about Blue Ivy's hair, likening it to ODB(Ol' Dirty Bastard), India.Arie took offense and went on Twitter. Mind you this is the same woman who bragged about her "brown skin" for years. Then last year she was criticized when she lightened her skin allegedly on the cover art work of her single. Not that this has anything to do with Blue Ivy but I'm just saying. People need to learn when to choose their…

Actress Chosen To Play Aaliyah in Upcoming Biopic

AGE AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT A NUMBER: The big story today is that an actress has finally been chosen to portray the late great Aaliyah. Zendaya Coleman(Dancing With The Stars, Disney's Shake It Up) will portray Aaliyah in the film airing on VH1 this Fall. A biopic of Aaliyah has been in the works for quite some time. The idea of who should play Aaliyah has sparked many debates over the years. Interestingly enough there have been an onslaught of  biopics to come out of the woodworks in recent months. TLC, whose lives were chronicled in their own VH1 biopic was a hit with audiences and fans. Lifetime is producing the Whitney Houston biopic and 2 Pac's life will be chronicled on the big screen. The companies are seeing green with biopics right now so expect more of them in the future.

Chris Brown in Studio with Justin Beiber & Akon, Day 26 Returns With New Single

Chris Brown is still working diligently to get his new album X out before he possibly hits the slammer again. This time Chris has logged in studio time with Justin Beiber and Akon. By now Chris has likely recorded roughly a 100 songs for his new album. When will we get to hear it in full is anyone's guess. Day 26 is back! Their new recording(I say this because I'm not sure if its an album or EP) The Return will be available on June 26. The lead single is titled Bullshit. I'm not sure what label the group is on. At this point though does anyone really care? I mean I think Day 26 is a talented group of guys but I think more people are excited about Danity Kane's return than Day 26. Just being honest! 

Tamar Braxton Snaps At Sisters, Jennifer Lopez on 'Wendy'

BRAXTON FAMILY CURSE: There is a new season of Braxton Family Values coming soon and the teaser has leaked out. I, myself haven't seen the clip except for a :15 second preview via Instagram. From what I saw there is a lot of drama involving Towanda and Tamar. Speaking of Tamar, the singer was fuming at her sisters. Apparently the sisters surprised Tamar by appearing onstage during her concert and twerking for the gawds. Tamar kept it cool during the surprise impromptu performance but backstage was another story. Tamar allegedly cussed out her sisters and vowed for them to never show their ass like that again. I read there was also a water bottle thrown in for good measure. What I want to know is, was the cameras rolling for the Braxton Family Value show when this happened? I like the Braxton Family I do but I do feel like some of the lesser sisters are just vying for attention however they can get it. I say that because their popping up onstage randomly, doing other reality TV sh…

Keyshia Cole Going on Tour, Chris Brown In Studio With Tyga

TOUR DE FORCE: Keyshia Cole is going on the road to support her upcoming album Point Of No Return. The album due this Summer will feature the songs Next Time and Rick James. The tour will go for a little over a month starting on July 12 in Rochester, New York and ending August 25 in San Diego. Will you be supporting Keyshia this go round? STUDIO SESSIONS: Chris Brown is back in the studio this time with Tyga and Wizkid(Who?). I saw a picture of the group and thought I'd let you all know. I'm guessing while Chris is out of jail for the meantime he will try and get his long awaited album X released. 

Bobby Brown Speaks Out on New Whitney Movie, Mila J To Release EP

BOBBY SPEAKS: Bobby Brown feels that he can play himself in the upcoming Lifetime biopic for Whitney Houston, to whom he was married to. He jokingly says he'd have to lose a few pounds. When told that no music of Whitney's would be featured in the movie, Bobby frowned at the idea noting that they were very much a music couple. The Houstons are playing hardball here especially fact being they don't want this movie made. Despite the Houston family's feelings the movie is still being made. Back to Bobby though, he did say his daughter, Bobbi Kristina would be spending Father's Day with him and she is not married contrary to popular belief. Well now there you go! SMOKE TO THIS: If you listen to the radio frequently then you've likely heard the new song from singer Mila J, Smoke Drink, Break Up. The song will appear on Mila J's upcoming Motown debut EP MadeInL.A.(M.I.L.A.) due in September. The singer recently hosted a studio session of some new material that w…

Throwback Video: Janet Jackson - Come Back To Me

It's hard to believe but its been 24 years since Janet released her single Come Back To Me. It was one of the many singles released from Janet's 1989 album Rhythm Nation 1814. Janet is currently working on new music and hopefully we will hear new music before the year is out.

Petition For Blue Ivy's Hair to be Styled, Robin Thicke Names New Album

SO BLUE: Believe it or not there is a petition that has been created for Beyoncé to finally do something with Blue Ivy's hair. We've seen pictures around and Blue's hair never looks styled. Let's be honest. I don't think a petition is needed though. However we can all agree that the girl is well taken care of. I mean after all her parents are two of the richest entertainers in the world. So people let's try and focus on more important things in the future. DEAR PAULA: Robin Thicke has revealed that his new album, his seventh is titled Paula. Paula Patton, his wife and Robin announced their separation back in February after Robin was caught hugged up with some groupie girl. Robin has been pleading to win Paula back with various performances of his hit show Lost Without U. Robin ins scheduled to perform at this year's BET Awards airing on June 29.

Rihanna Logs Studio Time with Big Sean, Keyshia Cole Family Coming Back to TV

STUDIO NEWS: I was skimming through my Instagram feed and I spotted Rihanna in the studio with Big Sean. The duo is likely cooking up new music for Rihanna's new album. There is still no release date in sight for Rihanna's new album but I'd say we'd have a new Rihanna album by the Winter Holidays. You all excited for new Rihanna music? Keyshia Cole is not only dealing with the fallout from her husband but also her family. ALL IN THE FAMILY: Keyshia's family, her sister and her Mother are trying to get back on TV through Keyshia's name. Keyshia is not having it though! Apparently the family wants some type of mediation to bring the family closer. So the question is why would Keyshia be against it? After all she is the one responsible for bringing them on TV. So why be mad that they want to return to TV? GAYDAY: Ne-Yo is finding himself the subject of more pesky gay rumors. This time a video model, Crystal found her social media pages hacked saying that Ne-Yo was…

Kelly Rowland Pregnant?, Ciara Mad At Future, Rihanna

ROWLAND, PREGNANT?: Kelly Rowland gave some not so subtle hints to rumors her being pregnant. The singer posted pictures of adult size and kids size Jordans prompting people to believe that the singer is indeed with child. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet but Kelly has been sporting some really baggy clothes lately. NO FUTURE ENGAGEMENT: There is trouble in paradise between Ciara and Future reportedly. While Ciara has been adjusting to motherhood, Future has been out partying with Ciara's nemesis Rihanna. Ciara was also spotted without her engagement ring. That's all it takes nowadays for the media to go into a tizzy, seeing a celebrity not wearing their wedding ring. That's usually the first and biggest sign that something is wrong in a relationship. Ciara gave some subliminal hints as to her current situation but people could be making something into nothing as far as the tweets are concerned. As far as Rihanna is concerned she posted a meme(a picture with a caption)…

Stevie J Arrested For Non Child Support, R. Kelly's Daughter Comes Out

LOVE & CHILD SUPPORT: Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's Stevie J aka Steven Jordan was arrested earlier this morning for back child support. He owes upward of over $1,000,000. Wasn't it just last month that Stevie J was arrested for marijuana possession? My gosh! These reality TV stars. As far as the children situation, you got to take care of your kids. No wonder why he made Joseline get an abortion. He knew his ass already had enough children! NO LONGER 'TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET': R. Kelly's daughter has come and revealed that she wants to live life as a trans gender male. She know wants to be known as simply Jay. Jay's Mother Andrea Kelly of Hollywood Exes fame has come to the support of her child. Now everyone is just waiting on R. Kelly's response. SAMPLE THIS: Jennifer Lopez has released the snippets from her new 10 track album A.K.A. due on June 17. The album features the singles I Luhh Ya Papi featuring French Montana and First Love. Click here to get …

Single Cover: Kelis - Friday Fish Fry

Kelis unveils the new single cover art for her new single Friday Fish Fry. Friday appears on Kelis' latest album FOOD released back in April. Kelis has also announced her 4th single which will be Forever Be. What do you all think of Kelis' new single cover?

T.I.'s Mama Calls Out Tiny, Groupie Girl Claims Jay Z Hit On Her

TIP OF THE ICEBERG: T.I & Tiny is still going through it. On Instagram T.I. threw shade at Tiny's friend Shekinah and Shekinah clapped back. If that weren't enough, T.I.'s mother called out Tiny on Instagram urging her to make things right with Tip. I'm just curious if we are ever going to see any of this drama on The Family Hustle. Or will the family continue to make us believe that everything in their family life is perfect. I guess we will see since A Family Hustle is returning in a few weeks to VH1. Sighs. LIV & CLYDE: The Beyoncé & Jay Z saga continues. There is a woman by the name of Liv, a rapper and groupie girl who claims that Jay Z hit on her during a commercial shoot. Liv says she turned Jay down due to her respect for Beyoncé. Like my friend says "I don't put nothing past anybody" and this applies to this situation. Now people are saying Liv is what Solange was fighting Jay Z about. I swear that whole story about what the fight wa…

Whitney Houston Biopic Star Revealed, Monica To Release New Music

IT'S NOT RIGHT BUT ITS OKAY: The Whitney Houston biopic being produced by Lifetime finally has a star! YaYa Dacosta of ANTM(America's Next Top Model) will star as Whitney and the movie will chronicle her tumultuous years with ex-husband Bobby Brown. If you recall this is the move that Houston's family doesn't want made. They prefer that her story be shared on the big screen. Personally they can also do a big screen adaptation as well. The Lifetime movie is being directed by former cast mate from Waiting To Exhale, Angela Bassett. I remember watching Wendy and she was interviewing Kimberly Elise(Hit The Floor) and Wendy asked her, her thoughts on the biopic. Kimberly stated that the network "should respect the wishes of the family". I do understand and agree with that but wasn't this the same family that exploited not only themselves but Whitney on their own Lifetime show, The Houstons: On Our Own, or whatever it was called. NEW MONICA: I meant to share t…

Usher Defends Justin Beiber, Danity Kane On 'Love & Hop Hop L.A.'

BE-LIEBER: Usher has come to the defense of his protégé Justin Beiber. After the videos of Justin using racial slurs, Usher has spoken out insisting that Justin is not a racist! I do feel at 13 years old or however old Justin was in the videos, he knows well enough that the gesture wouldn't go over with people. I'm just saying! KANE & ABLE: I read a rumor that Dawn and Aubrey of Danity Kane fame may be close to signing up to appear on VH1's Love & Hip Hop L.A. Ray J is already signed up as well as Teairra Mari and Ray J's other sidechick. There have been so many rumors regarding who will actually be joining the cast. All I know is that Love & Hip Hop L.A. is shaping up to be as messy if not more than Love & Hip Hop L.A. Are you all ready for the ratchetness when it debuts in September? R.I.P.: Sad news in Hip Hop JayAre of Cali District Swag passed away after a battle with sickle cell. He is the second of the quartet that has died. R.I.P. Cali District …

J-Lo Single Again, Rihanna Vs. TLC, Shanice & Flex Broke

SINGLE AGAIN: J-Lo is reportedly single again. Yes! You read it right. But it is being reported that its not because of the rumors going around about her boyfriend Casper. If you missed it there were rumors going around that Casper had dealings with a trans girl. Yeah right! In other J-Lo news I read that the Bronx labeled her a "sell out" after her hometown performance. Why? I don't really care to know but I can pretty much imagine why they would say that. Personally people should be over J-Lo and the whole "Jenny From The Block" thing anyway. NAKED AMBITION: Rihanna is not one to be messed with and I feel we learn that at least every two weeks. When asked about Rihanna's latest fashion choices in reference to her see through gown at the CDFA, TLC had choice words for Rihanna. Chili and T-Boz both agreed they never had to take off their clothes to sell records. Hey! It's been the same thing Brandy has said before as well as a host of other singers. It…

Chris Brown Has Homecoming, Aubrey O'Day Calls Out D. Woods
