Rick Ross denied bail and Bad Boy artists reunite for BET Awards

Image
Well it looks like Rick Ross will be spending a little more time in jail. He was just denied bail after he was arrested for aggravated assault and kidnapping. Speaking of arrested, Diddy and the Bad Boy Family including Lil' Kim, Faith Evans, 112, Mase, and more will reunite at the BET Awards airing this Sunday. Chris Brown who is also expected to perform numerous times Sunday night is releasing a new album in the Fall. The untitled project comes hot on the heels of his recently released "X" album. The album's first single, "Liqour" was just released. What do you all think about Rick Ross? And are we looking forward to the Bad Boy reunion? I hear their all going on tour together too and if that's true that will be pretty big. And are you looking forward to seeing Chris Brown take part in the Janet Jackson preview? And are you looking forward to his new album? Thanks for reading! :)

Music Feed: Under Arrest

Image
It seems as of lately some of our favorite rappers just can't stay out of trouble but why? Is it a case of life imitating art or art imitating life? You decide. Rick Ross - Rick Ross was arrested twice in less than a month. First the rapper was arrested for marijuana possession. Now the rapper was just recently arrested for aggravated assault and kidnapping. I'm still wondering who Rick Ross kidnapped. I guess if I read the rest of the story I would know but I guess I don't care as much. And the aggravated assault was on one of his employees who he pistol whipped. Diddy - Diddy is known to "throw bows" just ask Drake. He did the same at UCLA where his son's coach was yelling at his son and he didn't like it so he went down there and gave him a piece of his mind. Next thing you know Diddy gave the coach a blow or two to the head and had him in a chokehold. Diddy was later arrested.The Game - The Game got into a heated argument with an off duty cop at a bas…

Rick Ross arrested again and The Game's new TV show gets premiere date

Image
What's going on with Rick Ross? This is the second time in less than a month that he's been arrested! This time Ross was arrested for assaulting one of his workers who was helping construct his home. I also saw something about a kidnapping charge. When I think of a kidnapping charge, I think of a child, not an adult. I didn't read that far to get the whole story but it begs the question, "What's really going on Rick Ross?". I guess that's a question for Rick Ross. And speaking of rappers, the first preview for the Game's new reality show, "She's Got Game" made the rounds Monday night. The show will feature 10 women vying for the affection of the Game. The show premieres on August 10. Will you be watching? And while we're on the subject of rappers, one of rap's once premier producers, Scott Storch has filed for bankruptcy. He is said to only have $3600 to his name. And while that is a lot of us his bills are in excess of much more…

Ciara to honor Janet at the BET Awards and Tyga surprise releases new album

Image
So its finally been confirmed that BET will be honoring Janet Jackson at this year's BET Awards airing on Sunday June 28. Ciara, Tinashe, Chris Brown and Jason Derulo will be on hand to honor the icon. Will you be watching? I think what would be really cool is if Paula Abdul played a hand in the tribute in some capacity, whether it was her performing one of Janet's routines or presenting her with an award? I mean what do you all think? Paula played a big part in Janet's career early on. Speaking of surprises, Tyga possibly found a way to stop people from talking about he and his teenage lover! Early this afternoon Tyga surprise released his album, "The Gold Album" on Spotify. I don't have Spotify so I guess I'll have to hear it in a different capacity. "The Gold Album" has been sitting for awhile on the shelves since Cash Money wouldn't release it for unknown reasons. Lil' Wayne faced the same fate causing him to fall out with Birdman. T…

BET planning rumored Janet Jackson tribute and Claudia Jordan fired from "RHOA"

Image
Happy Father's Day to all the Father's out there. And I want to give a special shout out to all readers in Russia. You guys have been showing a lot of support and I'm glad you continue to visit my blog. Now on to some music news...so with the announcement of Janet's new single, "No Sleeep" being released on June 23. It's now being rumored that BET is paying tribute to Janet at their BET awards this year. Word is Ciara is to take part in the tribute but for now everything is hush hush and nothing has been confirmed. Hey! Maybe Janet will perform her new single there as well. I guess we will have to wait and see. Something you will not see is Claudia Jordan of "RHOA" on the show's upcoming 8th season. Jordan was fired and no specific reason was given. Though many have alluded to her beef with Nene Leakes being a deciding factor to axe her. The story goes that Claudia was hired to take on Nene and she did just that. But when the executive produ…

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon sporting new boos and Rob Kardashian comes out of hiding

Image
Has Mariah Carey finally moved on from Nick Cannon? Well its looking that way according to recent pictures that has spotted the singer with an Australian billionaire. The guy, James Packer is said to be the 4th wealthiest man in Australian, said to be worth 4.6 billion dollars. Talk about an upgrade from Nick Cannon. And speaking of Nick, he has also moved on as he's been spotted with a much younger looking girl. The two have been seen walking and holding hands at an amusement park. In some other totally unrelated music news, Rob Kardashian, the brother of the famous Kardashian clan was seen out and about, late at night on a burger run. Rob has been in hiding a lot since his weight has skyrocketed. He was looking pretty unrecognizable but if you looked long and hard you could tell it was him. Whatever he is going through hopefully he gets through it. And I apologize for being so late on reporting this because I don't think I have and if I did, I don't remember; Cynthia Bai…

Rasheeda opens new store and Cee Lo readies new album

Image
Boss chick Rasheeda finally opened up her store in Atlanta called Pressed. A who's who of Atlanta showed up for the store's opening festivities including RHOA's Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss. Speaking of Atlanta, ATLien CeeLo Green is working on new music I'm happy to report. The album titled "Heart Blanche"(?) will find the singer hooking up with Mark Ronson(worked with Amy Winehouse) and Charlie Puth(worked with Wiz Khalifa). It's funny because my Mother was just asking what's CeeLo been up to and now I can tell her. I'm actually looking forward to CeeLo's album. I have a feeling he's going to give us something good. Last but certainly not least, Janet has released a snippet of a new song, "Love" dedicated to her fans. I'm not sure if its a full song or was it just recorded for appreciation purposes. Either way the song has a lot of potential if it is a full song. Meanwhile I'm waiting to her Janet's new single &q…

Madonna calls on Beyonce for new video and Ne-Yo added to list of performers for BET Awards

Image
Madonna is going all out for her new video to her new single, "Bitch I'm Madonna" featuring Nicki Minaj. The video is said to feature Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rita Ora(l), and Miley Cyrus. The video is set to premiere any day now and its being touted as an answer to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video which featured a handful of pop starlets. Are you all looking forward to new Madonna video? Kanye West and Kim K. West celebrated North West's second birthday party complete with the Kardashian clan and Tyga. Drake and The Game have been hanging out shooting the video for the single, "100". Ne-Yo, Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj are just a few of the performers at this year's BET Awards airing in 2 weeks(can't remember the date off top). And Happy Birthday to the late great 2 Pac Shakur. He would of been 44 today! Many artists alike paid their respects to the entertainer today.

Janet Jackson announces new world tour

Image
Janet Jackson has revealed the first dates for her new world tour, "Unbreakable". The tour will begin in Vancouver, CA on August 31. The tour will also stop in L.A., Memphis, Chicago, Atlanta, Cincinnati, and more cities. Janet revealed the tour artwork on her Facebook in the wee hours of Monday morning. It's been revealed, by not Janet but that her new single is titled, "No Sleeep"(yes with three 'e's). The single is said to be available at the end of June. While I'm sure this is likely from a reliable source, I'll wait until Janet confirms it. Because she has been confirming everything via her Facebook. And if she ain't saying it I'm not believing it all the way just yet. As for Janet's new untitled album, its said to be in stores this Fall. Will you be going to see Janet on tour? And are you excited about her single and album?

*UPDATED* Music Feed: Janet Jackson's Most Sexualized Songs: REVISITED

Image
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 …

Tyga sued and Chris Brown and ex battle it out on social media

Image
Your looking at an old banner above, in case you were wondering but anyway on to the music news! Tyga is being sued by some video vixens after they say he and his team sexually assaulted them and some other jargon. Actually this was all settled out of court earlier this year, but one of the girls has said she was shorted on her money. I guess this is a case of "bitch better have my money". Pay up Tyga! And the neverending saga between Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran came to a head again today. Chris Brown called out his ex for continuing to do interviews about him. Chris' ex retorted saying she was asked about him and she answered the question but he was not all she was talking about. She went on to say how Chris was trying to lure her back with him with gifts, car, etc. Chris responded back this time a bit gentler and wished his ex well. Something tells me though this is not the end of these two. Maybe they won't be back together again(anytime soon) but I'm sure …

YG shot and The Game sued and Zendaya graduates

Image
Here are some news tidbits: YG was shot 3 times in the hip in L.A. Game is being sued for $12 million dollars by the cop he threatened to kill. Zendaya Coleman graduated high school. Bow Wow says he is responsible for his wife, Erica Mena's new and improved image. Safaree Samuels, Nicki Minajs' ex says Nicki made a whole album about him and he subliminally admitted to cheating in recent interview. Beyonce is being sued for $7 million dollars by background singer for the song "XO". I don't know the specifics of the lawsuit and I really don't care. We all know Beyonce steals songs and ideas by now. "Orange Is The New Black" season 3 has been released and early word on the new season is that it sucks. Have you watched?

Music Video: Faith Evans Featuring Keke Wyatt - Make Love

Image
Faith Evans unveils her new video for her single "Make Love" featuring KeKe Wyatt. "Make Love" appears on Faith's album "Incomparable" which was released last year. If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. It's really good!

Rick Ross arrested and Raven Symone named permanent host of "The View"

Image
Rick Ross has been arrested in Atlanta for weed possession and also for his windows being tinted too dark on his car. Oh Ricky!  Raven Symone has officially become a permanent host on "The View". Congrats to her! Kim Kardashian-West says she's not having twins, she's carrying the baby(and not a surrogate), and they haven't revealed the sex of the baby just yet. Reports were saying otherwise and she spoke on it! Sherri Shepard formerly of "TheView" got in a little hot water today when she posted on Instagram that she thought about butt implants. She said unfortunately she's always reminded of what many have faced when they've decided to get the butt implants illegally, like in what they call "back alleys". Anyway as she posted a picture of a botched butt implant she threw a little shade at Khloe Kardashian saying she got a legal butt implant. This was just one day after Khloe claims she didn't have any work done and she worked her a…

The Game released from jail and Khloe Kardashian speaks out on plastic surgery rumors

Image
The Game is a free man now after turning himself in for threatening a cop. And after his release he cuddled up with his assistant and sent out a lengthy tell off to all the haters. He had some pretty valid points in there. You'd have to go to his Instagram though to read it. And speaking of The Game, his close friend Khloe Kardashian(who I usually never talk about unless she's beefing with a musician) swears up and down that her new body is from all her hard work but still people aren't buying it. Many believe Khloe got some butt shots and I believe she did too. Have you seen her lately. And Khloe's sister, Kylie Jenner says she's been independent since was 14. She said her pimp Mother, Kris Jenner cut her off at 14. Since then Tyga she pays all her bills, gas, mortgages, etc. Way to go Kylie! :) And Miley Cyrus says she told her Mother that she was bisexual at 14. No surprise there now is it?

Katy Perry tweet angers Azealia Banks and Young Thug speaks out on Caitlyn Jenner

Image
Azealia Banks is at it again, you could say! After Katy Perry tweeted that she was on her way back to the "trap house", Azealia took offense and tweeted. But I feel her though. To quote the famous Paul Mooney(look him up), "Everybody wants to be a nigga but nobody wants to be a nigga!". In all honesty why would she(Katy)even say anything about a "tra house". Has she ever been to one? I highly doubt it. I could see Miley Cyrus at a trap house before I ever saw Katy Perry there. I'm just saying. Well enough of that! Young Thug spoke out on Caitlyn Jenner and his comment has raised more than a few eyebrows. Young Thug referred to Caitlyn aka Bruce Jenner as a "bad bitch" and he would put the moves on her if given the chance. While this comes as no surprise to me that he said, this further cements the rumors of him being gay or whatever he thinks. Maybe with Young Thug's comments about Caitlyn Jenner, maybe Ne-Yo will decide to come out once…

Beyonce announces lifestyle change and Drake signs on as spokesperson for Apple Music

Image
Well it just so happens that Beyonce wants us to become vegans and she told us how to do in so many days. That was her big announcement on "Good Morning America" this morning. Who was surprised? I was expecting something much different but I guess. They say people reacted negatively to the news and flooded Beyonce's Instagram page with pictures of food! People are ignorant and petty and I mean that, in this case, in the best way. :) In honor of Kanye Wests' birthday today, wife Kim Kardashian-West rented out Staples Center for her husband and some of his best buds to play ball. Awww ain't that sweet? Drake has teamed up with Apple for their new streaming service Apple Music. Drake was reportedly paid around $20 million dollars. Helping Drake kick things off was The Weeknd who also performed his new song, "Can't Feel My Face". The Apple Music service will cost $9.99 a month and the first three months will be free along with many other incentives. Wil…

Beyonce to make huge announcement and Summer Jam erupts in NYC

Image
So its been revealed that Beyonce will reveal some very big news tomorrow via ABC's "Good Morning America". What could it be though? A pregnancy announcement? Or her 130th tour? Or maybe her joint album with Jay Z? We shall know by tomorrow morning and I guarantee you that will be all people will talk about. New York City's annual Summer Jam concert is in live effect. The concert brings together the hottest entertainers in R&B/Hip Hop music along with surprise acts. Performers included Omarion, Trey Songz, Fat Joe & Terror Squad featuring Remy Ma, 50 Cent featuring G-Unit, Chris Brown, Fabolous, Teyana Taylor, Fetty Wap, Travis Scott(who got into an argument with a camera man) and many more. And are you watching the NBA Finals? Who do you think will take tonight's game? Cavs or Warriors? Sound off!

Ne-Yo addresses gay rumors again and Lil' Kim dissed by baby daddy

Image
Ne-Yo has come out again, no pun intended :) to deny rumors that he's gay. He informed his followers on Twitter not to believe everything you read and questioned why people are still talking about his sexuality. Hmm makes you wonder though! If he's not gay he's bisexual. It's just something about him that comes off as gay. I mean I could care less either way but it doesn't matter how many women you marry or how many children you have. If people think that your gay, they are always going to think that. There's no changing their mind! I do think it would be in his best interest not to address this again though. He has numerous times and it shows that the rumors do bother him. Speaking of people being bothered, Mr. Papers, Lil' Kim's baby daddy is throwing more shade on Instagram. He posted a meme saying "the real deadbeat is the woman who keeps her child from a loving father". Mmmm this is not the first time Mr. Papers has thrown shade at Lil…

Chris Brown is brushed off by ex and upsets Kylie Jenner with insensitve but true meme

Image
In honor of Flashback Friday, I posted this picture of myself in 5th grade circa 1995. My hair looks nothing like that anymore. I'm damn near bald now. I still wear bifocals. I had one ear pierced then and I let it close up. I got both ears pierced again years later only to let the same thing happen. Ha! On to the music news, it has been an interesting week for Chris Brown who doesn't just make the occasional headline, he's making headlines practically everyday for something different everyday. This time, Chris Brown caught his ex at the club and he proceeded after her to which she turned away. He chased after her and it was all caught on camera. Of course the media is having a field day with this coverage. This is all over the blogs! And in other Chris Brown news, Kylie Jenner is mad at Chris for being somewhat insensitive towards her father Bruce Caitlyn Jenner. Brown posted on Instagram a meme about Akon donating money to Africa and how its not news but Bruce Caitlyn Je…

K. Michelle says she's not dating and The Weeknd said to appear on "Empire"

Image
K. Michelle says she's not dating Safaree, ex boyfriend of Nicki Minaj. The rumors have intensified based on the constant interaction between the two via social media. Safaree sent K. flowers and she posted it on Instagram. There were several other examples but I've had a brain freeze. But like K. said she's not dating Safaree. Can't say I blame her. I always thought he was gay. :) Speaking of gay, Lee Daniels, creator of "Empire" is eyeing The Weeknd to appear on season 2 of the hit show. What do you all think about that? I would say his hit single, "Earned It" played a big part in that. But can The Weeknd act? I guess we shall see. And at this point it seems like anyone whose anyone is being considered for "Empire" must be nice. I remember when they ran that contest for the viewers about a walk on role on the show. You know I applied! And Chris Brown was being blamed for yet another fiasco, this time on a plane. The story was that Brown …

Janet Jackson announces label news and Amber Roses says she was drugged

Image
Janet Jackson has revealed more details about her forthcoming project due this Fall. A new single is said to debut within the next 30 days and the accompanying album will be released through Janet's own record label, Rhythm Nation Records. BMG will be distributing the album. Janet and both BMG both released statements today regarding their partnership. So as far as Janet's new single, what are you we expecting to hear? A slow groove or an uptempo number? Whatever it may be I hope Janet delivers. But something tells me this album will be good. What do you think? While you think about that, Amber Rose says it was possible she was drugged on the night she revealed that ex Kanye West uses a ghostwriter. First she said she was drunk, now she's saying she was drugged. Chick if you were drunk, you were drunk. How all of a sudden do you think you were drugged? Anyway Amber Rose is now dating Cleveland rapper and actor Machine Gun Kelly aka MGK.

Azealia Banks rumored to be collaborating with Nicki Minaj and Janet said to drop new music soon

Image
Is Azealia Banks and Nicki Minaj planning a collaboration? It's been a rumor for quite awhile. It all started when Azealia teased and tweeted about who was featured on a remix to her single "Ice Princess". Many were quick to say that Nicki Minaj was the featured guest but Azealia never confirmed if the rumor were true or not. A few weeks later, Azealia revealed that Rick Ross was on the remix and another guest, but she wouldn't say who. Then there were a series of tweets that Azealia and Nicki have been "favoriting" on twitter. When Azealia thanked everyone for the birthday wishes and that she was "headed to set", Nicki favorited the tweet and that only ignited the rumors of a possible collaboration. Still if there is a collaboration in the works between the ladies, they are keeping mum. But more than enough hints have been thrown. We're just now sure in what capacity we will hear this collaboration. If it is true and does happen, it will be g…

Iggy Azalea gets engaged and Kim Kardashian-West sounds off on pregnancy rumors

Image
Iggy Azalea and her boyfriend Nick Young have gotten engaged! Iggy showed off her new ring via Instagram! Congrats to the couple! Iggy recently cancelled her "The Great Escape Tour" citing that she would tour again next year when she releases a new album. And Kim Kardashian-West says that she's not using a surrogate to carry her child as it was indicated on "Wendy" on Monday. Kim tweeted that she can't wait to do a live video feed to sound off on the haters, not her exact words but you get the drift. But my thing is why take the time to address every story and rumor about you? I don't think people are all that pressed about whether you did use a surrogate or not. In other Kim K. West news, she says that Pharrell and his wife Helen saved her butt last night as feathers on her dress caught on fire. Speaking of Kardashians, Caitlyn Jenner formerly known as Bruce Jenner made his/her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair, I'm sure you all seen it by now. Any…

Lil' Mama called out for new video and Lil' Wayne gets in fight with referee

Image
Happy Monday everybody! Kim Kardashian-West has announced that she is pregnant with her second child! Congrats to her and Kanye! Speaking of announcement, the creator of Lil' Mama's new song, "Sausage" has called out the rapper saying the song belongs to him. He goes on to say that he recorded a video awhile back and it went viral. Lil' Mama and her team got wind of the video and that's how Lil' Mama's version came to friction, allegedly. He also says that he had been in contact with Lil' Mama and her team and they asked him to be in the video but he said he couldn't afford to. That was when the said her team told him to catch a Greyhound(bus). But I'm not sure what Lil' Mama's team is saying about this just yet. Check back for more updates! And Lil' Wayne got into a shouting match with a referee at a celebrity basketball game. The shouting match turned physical and things soon turned into a melee between Wayne and the opposing…
