Ashanti Talks New Movie Roles, Aretha Franklin Upstaged in Restaurant

AWWW BABY: Ashanti greeted fans last night with a live feed of UStream. The singer discussed everything from her upcoming video for Early In The Morning, which she is vying to shoot this weekend. She also discussed briefly the movie she is working on now, Stuck, where she plays Eve, a woman stuck on a subway train with several other characters. She says the movie will be released next year. She is also starring in a movie on Syfy to be released in October. Ashanti also said she has another movie in the works that she will begin shooting in November. Hell! It truly sounded like Ashanti has abandoned music for movies. This is music to some people's ears I'm sure. But I like music Ashanti and I'm all for the movies, but the snail pace release of this Early In The Morning video is simply ridiculous. But her movie schedule has her pretty booked and she's only off on the weekends. Bummer! Guess we will just have to wait and see. BURGER QUEEN: Aretha Franklin, known for her diva antics was upstaged this time when she visited a Johnny Rocket's restaurant. Apparently the Queen of Soul ordered take out and sat at an empty table awaiting her order. That was then when an employee approached her and told her she couldn't sit at the table unless she was dining in. She replied "Fine I'll dine in!" and that was when the employee said she couldn't since she had already paid to have it taken out. That's when Aretha got up and stormed out the restaurant not before telling the employee to "eat the burger and pay for it". Ha! Of course Johnny Rocket's came out and issued a statement saying they will have to review their policies regarding take in and carry out orders. What y'all think about this story?

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…
