Rihanna's performance of "Wait Your Turn" and "Hard".
New York's Anthem. Am I the only person tired of seeing Jay Z perform this song? I mean I'm just saying.
Jennifer Lopez performed her new single "Louboutins". Interesting.Be sure to catch the fall at 2:57, she hopped up fast though.
First up: Nicki Minaj, Buckshot, Crown Royyal, & Joe Budden in the cypher.
Nicki Minaj is my new favorite female rapper. There will be more posts about her soon.
Cypher #2 featuring KRS One, Wale, Nipsey Hussle, & Gsan
Gsan is a rapper from Tanzania, hip hop is so global. I love it.
But...BET saved the best for last.Mos Def, Eminem, & Black Thought
Ya'll know how I feel about Eminem. He is a freaking monster! Sweet.
The Cypher shows that real hip hop is still alive!
I'm so excited to see a new video and hear new music from him. Chris also announced via Twitter that his album will be released December 15. [the day after my birthday, and which I will be accepting all gifts ;-)] Also Chris Brown will also be doing a fan appreciation tour starting November 14 in Houston.
Of course, they start the interview off with violent & negative song lyrics from on of his songs trying to make it seem as though Nas is a hypocrite. But as he speaks he proves them wrong. Great interview and kudos to Nas.
I wonder how Tameka feels? Nah, I could careless, I'm not a fan of hers. I wish Usher & Chilli would get back together.
You gotta week to learn it thats more than enuff time...winning video will be headed to london with me
Teyana killed it in this video, I did not know the girl could dance like this. She makes me wanna pull out the old dance shoes and submit a video response. =D
[Sidenote: This event helped raise over $80,000 in proceeds for the Atlanta Flood victims. Good Job to those celebs who donated. ]
And fashionista Rihanna made an appearance at Paris Fashion week, wearing this revealing black dress. Only Rih Rih can wear something so daring & still look sweet in it.
Some of these folks [i.e, Drag-On] we have not heard from in years but they still have it! DMX is still crazy [no shade], Eve looks fab, and Drag-On is not as cute as he used to be; but they all look good and I am happy about this track. I just hope this reunion does not stop here. I need more Ruff Ryder music in my life!
2009 is officially the year of the comebacks!
Back in August I gave you all the track to Drake's new single "Forever" now I will be giving you all the video for the sweet single. I love the fact that 4 hot rappers are on this 1 hot track. Sweet!
Plies released the video for his controversial song "Becky".
The video is not what I expected it would be, but I guess he had to slightly keep it clean for TV. *side eye*
[SIDENOTE: Now I love Plies' music and I think this song is hilarious considering it is talking about a sexual act, BUT I cannot believe that radio stations have the song in heavy rotation. Even with the word "becky" being a substitute for this act you can still understand what the man is talking about. I would hate for a 10 year old child to be listening to a station and the song comes and starts singing "Gimme that Becky", like seriously what ever happened to censorship people?! ugh! ]
Who's hotter sweetz?
Beyonce has taken her I Am... tour down-under in Australia. Over the weekend she serenaded a young girl who is battling cancer. Beyonce is such a sweetheart. This video almost brought me to tears.
To those still "freaked out" about Lady GaGa's outfits and performance at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards check her out performing one of her many hits acoustic, "Pokerface", live at the Marc Jacobs after party. I'm a fan and even I did not know she could sing this well.
and saving the best for last...This has to be my most favorite performance of the month right now. Jay Z performing live at his 9/11 benefit concert in NY at Madison Square Gardens with Rihanna & Kanye West. This is Rihanna's debut performance since the 'incident' and she looks amazing and even sound great too!
The most talked about R&B mixtape, "Anticipated", was released early this summer by Trey Songz. I guess other artists saw the buzz that he was generating with his mixtape and then upcoming album "Ready" and decided to follow his lead.
Soon after Trey, the young Florida star Sammie released his mixtape "Swag & B", which did not get a lot of buzz.
But the lovely miss Mya has not had an album in years so I am looking forward to hearing new music from her as well as seeing her on the show "Dancing with the Stars" which premieres tonight, September 21, on ABC. Listen to her first single off the mixtape featuring Bun B "Show Me Something".
the very sexy and multi-talented Columbus Short celebrated his 27th birthday on Saturday, September 19.
HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY COLUMBUS!!
Columbus is starring in the new blockbuster hit "Whiteout" alongside Kate Beckinsale in theaters now. Check out the trailer.
And let's not forget that Dawn, Diddy, and Kaleena have now formed a new group Dirty Money Crew. Their new single "Love Come Down" recenlty hit radio airwaves. Check it out.
President Barack Obama has declared this week the National Historically Black Colleges & University week.
"...NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the
United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim August 30 through September 5, 2009, as National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week. I call upon public officials, educators, and all the people of the United States to observe this week with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities that acknowledge the tremendous
contributions these institutions and their graduates have made to our country..."
As a proud student of an HBCU I am happy that we are finally gettting the recognition that we deserve.
Thank You Mr. President.
Chris recently released a statement about the previews that CNN released stating:
"There have been reports on the Internet that I didn't remember what happened that night with Rihanna. I want to try and set things straight.
That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like 4 or 5 times -- and when you look at the entire interview you will see it is not representative of what I said.
The first four times or how ever many times it was - I gave the same answer -- which was that I didn't think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night. I said it was not right for me and it really wasn't fair to Rihanna. The fifth time or whatever it was I just misspoke. I was asked, "Do you remember doing it?" and I said, "No."
Of course I remember what happened. Several times during the interview, my mother said that I came to her right afterwards and told her everything. But it was and still is a blur. And yes, I still can't believe it happened because it is not me or who I am or is what happened like anything I have ever done before.
As I have said several times previously, I am ashamed of and sorry for what happened that night and I wish I could relive that moment and change things, but I can't. I take full responsibility for my actions. What I have to do now is to prove to the world that this was an isolated incident and that is not who I am and I intend to do so by my behavior now and in the future."
Be sure to tune in to Larry King Live tonight at 9 p.m eastern to see the full interview.
In case you missed the Chris Brown interview last night on CNN with Larry King. Here is the youtube video of the interview.
I refuse to listen to any of the leaked tracks from the album. I plan on supporting Jay Z and buying the album the day it drops.
Here's the video of her live performance.
This was horrible! But I will give Mrs. Pratt an "A" for effort. It took a lot of courage to go out there and perform for millions of people watching in the world but why did she lip sync!? Come on Heidi. smh... Good Try though.
According to concert-goers the pair were performing "Best I Ever Had" when Drake did a spin move and collapsed to the floor.
As some of you may know Drake has a previous injury with a torn ACL and his doctor suggested that he take it easy on his leg.
Here's a picture a fan from the concert posted via twitpic.com. You can tell from the picture that he is in some serious pain.
This is not good for the thousands of Drake fans going to the "America's Most Wanted" tour just to see him.
Get well soon Drizzy!!
Here's the track properly named "Warning" and for you long time Eminem fans, like me, this track will remind you of the old Marshall Mathers LP. I just hate he had to go in so hard on Mariah & Nick, I love them.
How do you all feel about this apparant beef between the two? Shold Eminem be going so hard on a female, is he just a hurt lover or what?!
...And in case you missed it here's Mariah Carey's video for "Obsessed".
The highly anticipated album from Fabolous is finally here. The album includes the sweet single "Throw it in the Bag" featuring The-Dream. Loso's Way the movie, also comes with the CD.
Fab also just dropped a new music video for the song, "Everything, Everyday" which features my two new favorite artists Ms. Keri Hilson & Ryan Leslie. Check it out here...
KGB has released a very controversial commercial. The video shows Black females in a beauty shop doing hair weaves and one woman asked, "Where does natural extensions come from?", and the commercial goes downhill from there. Ya'll check it out.
How do you all feel about the commercial do any of you all females take offense to the commercial?
Karrine "Superhead" Steffans has been busy on the road promoting her new book "The Vixen Manual". She recently did a TV interview with a local news station and the interview went all wrong.
The guy reporter immediately starts the interview disrespectfully asking Karrine, "Are these the tips that you learned in all those years you did the music videos?" and you immediately see Karrine's mood change.
Check out the video...
Some say this is what she gets because after all she's nothing but a video chick, but you can definitly see that she has changed her life around, so she does not deserve to be ridiculed by these two reporters. What do you all think?
The apology seems scripted & not sincere. It would have been nice to see him speak from his heart, everyone makes mistakes though.
This is one of my favorite songs from the "I Am" album and I am glad that Bey put together a very nice video for the song.
"op-fornarina.OLD PHOTOS. I'm THAT bored @iambenlyons and @perezhilton"
So when you're bored you post topless pictures of yourself Lindsay?! Ok! To each is own I guess.
When will she be making her official comeback, I would love to see her in a new movie soon!

Whitney Houston will be releasing her first album in 7 years come September 1. The title of the album has not been said. But her first single will be released this summer! So excited to hear that she is officially back. Do ya'll think the album will be nice?
Jay Z has the internet going crazy with his new song D.O.A (Death of Autotune) it is produced by No I.D. Check out the song right here....
It is reported that the new album The Blueprint 3 will be released September 11. I am looking forward to this! I am a big Jay Z fan and can not wait to buy the new album.
For you Lil Wayne & Kobe Bryant Fans
Lil Wayne shows who he's supporting in the NBA Finals giving Kobe Bryant a new theme song.
Kobe Bryant - Lil Wayne
I'm not a Kobe fan but it's a cute song. I'm a tad bit jealous though, I want a hot song about me.
The runner-up of American Idol 2009 is the very controversial Adam Lambert. His sexuality has been under the radar since the beginning of the season. Although he has not confirmed it yet, it is reported that Adam will be on the cover of People speaking about it.
Monday night, Adam was seen holding hands with his boyfriend leaving "Guys & Dolls" nightclub in W. Hollywood. They are a very fashionable couple.
I find it interesting that America fell in love with this guy but yet America is still against homosexuality. It should be interesting to see how his popularity & fame plays out with his new music that is supposed to be releasing at the end of the year. Will he be the newest gay pop star?! I believe so, hey the guy is talented and an amazing singer. I wish him much success with his career.
Watch live video from Bow Wow on Justin.tv
Now I don't know anything about the music business but what Bow says does make sense about Columbia not promoting rappers hard. Just look at who his labelmate is, BEYONCE. She is everywhere, world tours, U.S concerts, concert DVDs, double albums, they do it all for Beyonce. Yes her audience is broader, but if they promote Bow more maybe he could be gain a larger fanbase, instead of the little kids who love him. Because as we saw on the video that I posted last week "Pole in my Basement", he's definitly all grown up!
What do ya'll think?
2009 is the year of the comebacks & great new music. Black Eyed Peas reunited this year and dropped a sweet hit "Boom Boom Pow" & now their new single "I Gotta Feeling" will be blowing up the airwaves as well.
Check out the video...
OH NO! Not Again!
Last week I gave ya'll the video of Sexy Spec challenging some of our favorite male artists to a 'grind' off. In the video he was dancing and grinding to Pretty Ricky's new single "Tipsy". All the talk was finally dying down until Sexy Spec released part 2 of his very controversial video. SMH...But this time he's now dancing in his boxer briefs and saying that it's specifically for the ladies.
SMH again ya'll! What are ya'll thinking?
It's still a little questionable to me. And I want to know who is recording the video because I'm thinking it may be another guy! Just my opinion.
“It’s time !! No turning back! At hospital in labor right now!! Love &
She's still FABULOUS even during labor!!
Rihanna is looking sweet in this video! So glad my girl is back...
But she's not the only one starring a new YouTube Video.
Chris Brown broke his silence
Her ex-beau Chris Brown just released some videos with his pal Bow Wow by his side. He spoke about his new upcoming album & new single that will be released this summer.
I'm not too sure about this video. He doesn't seem too sincere, especially the way he refers to his "real fans". What's that about? So your not a "real fan" if you think he's a woman beater?! I don't get it? What about ya'll?
“The Tyson family would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks for
all your prayers and support, and we ask that we be allowed our privacy at this
difficult time,” the boxer said in a statement.
A tragedy like this should show us all that we do not need to take life for granted. My prayers go out to the family. R.I.P Exodus.
Mike Tyson's 4 year old daughter was found beside a treadmill with a cord around her neck today in Phoenix. The little girl's 7 year old brother found her in the room on the treadmill and immediately called for their mother. The girl was taken to the emergency room, by ambulance and was stated to be in extremely critical condition. There is no word on how she fell and the cord became wrapped around her neck, but officials are sure it was an accident.
This is a very tragic story my prayers are with the Tyson family and hope that girl has a speedy recover.
Today, I confronted my fiance and told him I knew his 'little secret'. I
had suspected that he had been ruining his wedding diet by eating pizza at
the office. He replied that the affair with his secretary had only been going on for
a couple of months. FML

Today, I was on the bus home and on the phone with my best friend discussing my sex life with this new guy I'm seeing. I was telling her all sorts of raunchy sex things we've done until someone taps my shoulder and says "I'm sure he doesn't appreciate you saying this in public." It was his mom. FML

There are many more stories like this. The site has topics such as: work, kids, money, sex, life, and love and more.
Skys The Limit (Featuring 112) - The Notorious B.I.G.
Also R.I.P to Atlanta rapper Dolla. He was shot & killed earlier this week at Los Angeles mall. Dolla was signed to Akon's label Konvict Music and had the sweet hit "Who the F*** is That" last summer that blew up the airwaves. This is such a tragic story because he was only 21 and a rapper with a promising future. This violence has got to stop!
What a better way to start the daily sweet accessory than with the beautiful Bey! She was in Barcelona, with the hubby Jay, rocking a sweet diamond encrusted signature "B" chain! A nice simple item like that can add so much to your outfit. Pure sweetness, I would love to have a "R" chain that big around my neck. What about you? Sweet or Sour?

I just recently stumbled on a unique clothing site modcloth.com and found that they have really nice clothes and very unique accessories. While I was looking at the accessories I noticed they had an umbrella very similar to the one I own & love. I purchased mine at a boutique in SC and it is very similar to this except my handle is clear and makes a very odd circular shape. The "Strawberry Shortcake" umbrella is sold out on the site and was priced at $27.99. I love unique things that stand out! Whenever I carry this umbrella I always receive many compliments on its uniqueness.
It is OFFICIAL that THE GAME has been cancelled:( Just got the call from Mara! I am sad to bring this news!
