T-Pain - "She Said" [Video Inside] Has the industry gone to far with this one???

This is T-Pain's latest single "She Said". If you're an adult this isn't a bad song, and it's not even the song it's self that's the problem in this instance. The Problem is the video...the visual. The hidden but not so hidden subliminal suggestions. The head bobbin is half way justified at the end of the video but whatever that was going down on the stairs still didn't look right to me.

Beyonce f/Drake - 'Mine' [Video Inside]

She sold 600,000 albums in 3 days and never even told anybody the album was coming. No promotions what so ever. People like to hate on this sista and they'll just have to hate me too, because one thing's for sure, we KNOW that 600,000 people like her enough to spend their money and buy a CD they didn't even know was coming. I gotta give props to where props is due. Beyonce did her thing! AND I really like this song! Check out the video…

NEW MUSIC: John Legend f/ Seal - We Loved It

Just a beautiful song as well as a perfect union. This is track number 18 off John's album "Love In The Future". They sound great together. Here's the song...

Here are the lyrics...
Come sweetly, stab me through the shadow of an open door
Wait quietly now, take us to the helplessness of it all
And I wonder as I watch you slip away somehow
Wonder if the only thing left is love
Wonder if I ever will wait
Will I ever love again?
Will I ever love again?

NEW MUSIC: Tyga f/Justin Bieber - Wait For A Minute

Well now.....THIS is an unexpected union for sho' and it actually works. Now honestly Im not a Justin Bieber fan in the least but I have to admit that young boy did his THANG on this track. I can see what Usher saw in him now. lol

NEW MUSIC: Lady Gaga f/R.Kelly - Do What You Want

 Lady Gaga just released another single from her forthcoming album "Artpop"which is due out on November 11th. The Track "Do What You Want" features R. Kelly. In a recent interview about her new album Lady Gaga said, and I quote:
"For Artpop, I, in the most metaphorical explanation, stood in front of a mirror and I took off the wig and I took off the makeup and I unzipped the outfit and I put a black cap on my head and I covered my body in a black catsuit and I looked in the mirror and I said: 'OK, now you need to show them you can be brilliant without that.' And that's what Artop is all about. Because I knew that if I wanted to grow, if I really wanted to innovate from the inside, I had to do something that was almost impossible for me."

NEW MUSIC: Eminem f/Rihanna - The Monster

Eminem is back again with Rihanna and a brand new song. This thing is called "The Monster" and it is the prelude to what is yet to come. This is the first single released off his next album "Marshall Mathers LP2" due to come out on November 5th. We haven't heard anything from Slim Shady and Ri Ri since their last song together, "Love The Way You Lie". Hit the "Read More" link, take a listen to this track and tell me how you REALLY feel.

NEW MUSIC: TLC - Meant To Be

 I don't know if you happened to catch the TLC Movie that aired on VH1 last week but in spite of all the negativity about the actresses, it was a pretty good show. They told the story but everything wasn't told EXACTLY the way it was but just know, those girls were Gansta with a capitol G! When they went into Clive Davis's office to talk to him about their money, the movie didn't show that they rolled up on Clive strapped. TBoz explained it in detail when she was a guest on the Monique Show. I might post that video up on here later. lol

NEW MUSIC Just Blaze & Baauer f/Jay Z - "Higher" [Music Inside]

Personally I think this song ROCKS! The beat is knocking' and it just feels good. It definitely makes you want to turn your music up "Higher".  Just Blaze & Baauer did their thing on this one for real! Turn up your speakers and let this one bang.

Drake - "The Motion" [Music Inside]

 I just really like this song by Drake, which says a LOT for me because Im not really what you would call a "Drake Fan"…I mean yeah I like some of his work, but I wouldn't be the one standing in line to buy his new album as soon as the store open on the Tuesday it's released. Do people even do that anymore?

Stevie Wonder Will Not Back Down As Other Artists Follow His Lead

Okay so if you didn't already read it here (Stevie Wonder Boycotts Florida in response to the Zimmerman Not Guilty Verdict) you've probably heard it somewhere else by now that Stevie Wonder was the first to stand up and openly state that he would no longer perform in Florida until they get rid of the 'stand your ground' law. When I wrote my piece I said it would be wonderful if the rest of the celebrity performing community would follow suit. Well guess what! Since Stevie made his announcement, O'Jays lead singer Eddie Lavert said on his Twitter account:  
“I, Eddie Levert will not play Florida until they change their gun laws, I’m going to join Mr. Stevie Wonder in his boycott of Florida."

"Bow Down B!t@he$"....Beyonce Has the Media All Fired Up & Jumping Off The Deep End Again....Which Has Keyshia Cole Speaking Out On The Twit Again.


Okay so if you don't know what's going on with the drama behind this new song Bey just released, get comfortable because Im gonna tell ya'. Alright, a few days ago Beyonce released the first single to her new album....which by the way (the album) is entitled "The Mrs. Carter Tour". The title of the song is called Bow Down/Been On. Well in the song, Mrs. Carter is telling all the haters a thing or two. "I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world." Then she tells them not to forget it and to respect that. Now that kinda knocks out my theory that MAYBE she wasn't specifically directing the phrase "Bow Down B's" to woman, because you know a man can be one too, if we're going there. But we're not because she clearly points out "little girls". I can't even help her clean it up a little. LOL There's no doubt she telling female haters to Bow Down.  Click 'Read More' to hear the song....

Ne-Yo Was Married....Who knew???

What's Up With Lauryn Hill? Tax Evasion...Eviction....Threats?

If you've been hearing rumors that Lauryn might be going to jail because of tax evasion then you've heard right. If fact she goes to court for her sentencing TODAY (mon april 22,2013)! They say (reports have it that) she owes the IRS 1.8 million dollars. During her hearing, the 37 year old singer pled guilty to three counts of tax fraud, stating that she intentionally failed to file taxes in 05,06 & 07. Huff Post reports that if she's found guilty today in court she faces up to a year in prison and up to $100.000 in fines FOR EACH COUNT! 

Now remember, she already pled guilty. But she did ask the judge to take into consideration her reason for not paying. What was her reason you ask? Well this is what she said on her tumblr account last year: 
"Over-commercialization and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual. I did not deliberately abandon my fans, nor did I deliberately abandon any responsibilities, but I did however put my safety, health and freedom and the freedom, safety and health of my family first over all other material concerns! I also embraced my right to resist a system intentionally opposing my right to whole and integral survival."

She also stated in closing:
"My intention has always been to get this situation rectified. When I was working consistently without being affected by the interferences mentioned above, I filed and paid my taxes. This only stopped when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family."
Lauryn also talked about how she has rejected pop culture's "climate of hostility, false entitlement, manipulation, racial prejudice, sexism and ageism." When Lauryn filed her court documents she simply stated that her reasons for failing to pay taxes was because she "withdrew from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family." She never said what kind of threats she'd been getting nor from whom. She asking for probation instead of jail time, stating that it would be much easier for her to pay her debt if she wasn't locked up behind bars.

On top of all this mess, TMZ reports that Lauryn's landlord has recently filed suit for her failure to pay rent and he is evicting her. She's been renting the South Orange, NJ mansion since 2009. If nothing else we will see how everything turns out today after she sees the judge about this tax evasion matter. Be on the look out for the update.
In the mean time, let's go back and remember when things were a little bit more simpler for Miss hill and her career.... Taking a line from one of her own songs, I say to Lauryn...."It could all be so simple, but you'd rather make it hard...."

Good luck Lauryn, I still have your back! Pay those bills though girl, save yourself all the drama!

Magic Speaks Out About his Son being Homosexual, Athletes Coming Out and How Important it is to Support Them.

Recently TMZ had a sit down interview with Magic Johnson about his son EJ. It was weeks ago that TMZ cameras caught up with EJ while he was out and about with one of his friends. That was the day he outed himself to the world. It was a day of emancipation for EJ because after that day he could TRULY do what his father told him...."Just Be yourself."

Fantasia Barrino New Single 'Without Me' f/Kelly Rowland & Missy Elliott [Song Inside]

It's been about 9-10 yrs since Miss Fantasia Barrino was first introduced to the world as an American Idol. Since then we've watched as she went through learning how to read, crazy relationships, an attempted suicide and even a second child. Lord knows she been through trials, but she made it through it all and came out even better than she was, STILL committed to her music, her God AND her fans. In a recent interview on Fox News South Carolina Fantasia said that people sometimes ask her if she'd change anything that she's done. Her response was no. She said she probably wouldn't do some of those things again, but she wouldn't change anything, because those things are what make her who she is....those things are her testimony. She also said that "there are a lot of things said out there, but this is coming from MY mouth. You don't have to hear it from anyone else. It's coming from ME, and it's on that CD. Everything that I thought, everything that I felt, I wrote it."

On April 23rd, Fantasia will grace us with yet another album titled 'Side Effects Of You'. She wrote most of the tracks on this album or at least had a hand in the writing. The first single released is called "Lose To Win". The second single (just released) titled 'Without Me', features Kelly Rowland & Missy Elliot. Take a listen....

You can find Fantasia on the April cover of Sister2Sister Magazine and the full story of where she is now with the whole Antwaun Cook scandal. And for the record, in case you were wondering she and he are no longer together. She's free and single right now and she's right where she needs to be.
Here's another little tid bit you'll read in that Sister2Sister article.... Fantasia says she's done crying over and worrying about the promotion of OTHER American Idol winners in comparison to the treatment that she's gotten over the years. She says: 

"I used to get angry and get upset but now I don't even put my feelings into that because that's where I messed up, coming into this game with feelings. Because this game don't care about your feelings. I say God bless them. I'm going to stay over here in my lane."

You can watch Fantasia perform Lose to Win on American Idol on Thursday Night April 18th. She'll also be appearing on The View & Good Morning America....and be looking out for a tour around the end of the summer. She back ladies and Gentlemen! Tougher, Stronger and Better!!

"Never let anyone stand in the way of your destiny. Always fight for what you want and stand for it."
~Fantasia  Barrino
