Willow Smith Covers Frank Ocean’s “Thinking About You”

Willow Smith took a hand at Frank Ocean‘s single “Thinking About You”. With her typically pop infused singles it’s pretty difficult to really hear the young star’s vocal ability and I have to say I was actually very impressed. A very short clip but one worth seeing. Here’s Williow’s “Thinking About You”.

For Jaden Smith and Justin Bieber‘s own rendition of the song. _______READMORE

[Official Video] Beyonce: “Dance For You”

Earlier in the week, we got a sneak peek of what was to come from Beyonce‘s fan favorite official video “Dance For You”.
The video is certainly sexy while Bey and her dancers dance for, what seems to be, a detective. But for some reason I couldn’t help but think “There’s a baby in her belly!” The thought threw my mind off a little and I wasn’t able to separate Bey the artist from the soon to be mother. I suppose the thought ruined it for me. See for yourselves, what are your thoughts?

Lady Gaga: “Marry The Night (A Very Gaga Thanksgiving)”

Lady Gaga was certainly in the holiday spirit when she put together a 90 minute ‘A Very Gaga Thanksgiving’ special last night on ABC. The special, produced by Gaga herself, showed the singer in some more intimate moments with family and friends, cooking deep fried turkey, and several performances of some of her chart topping hits.

The singer even premiered a performance of her latest single, “Marry The Night”.

Rihanna Takes Us With Her To Barbados In ‘Family Values’ (Narrated By Jay Z)

During a trip to Barbados, Rihanna spends some quality time with her family, showing us a very normal side of who she is. Forget the millions of records sold, magazine covers and the long list of #1 hits for a bit, a list that’s still growing by the way, and we meet Robyn. A day in the life of the singer, sharing a few laughs, exchanging gifts and even giving her younger brother some advise.


Rihanna on WhoSay
Lol at Rihanna’s mother telling her younger brother, “From Monday to Friday No Facebook. Textbook!” Hilarious.

Rihanna’s sixth album ‘Talk That Talk’ is in stores now!

[Official Video] Ludacris: “Bada Boom” (Big Sean & Drake Diss)

It didn’t take long for Ludacris to release the official video for the Big Sean and Drake diss track, “Bada Boom”. The record addresses Big Sean’s recent comment about Ludacris and numerous rappers taking his style, also copied by Drake, but Sean gave Drake credit while dissing Luda.
Apparently Ludacris didn’t take the comment lightly and fired back with “Bada Boom” making it clear he never copied Big Sean. In fact, “his style” of rapping was nothing new. Although, Big Sean has since recanted his earlier comments and would rather squash the beef Luda has now release the visual for the record and its quite hilarious. Check it out.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

On your Thanksgiving Day, while you may be enjoying your turkey, yams, greens and long list of traditional and non-traditional favorites, please remember to take a moment and appreciate the things you should be thankful for, such as family, friends, life and good health!

Often, we take advantage of all that we have and focus on all the things we want. There are many people today, some you may know personally, who do not have a family to spend time with, cannot afford a hot meal or even a home to call their own. Many military families are also missing their loved ones today, so appreciate those around you while they are still around. Stay blessed everyone and do have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Style Trend: Celebrities Looking Hot in Leather

Leather is everywhere this season, whether it’s a skirt, jacket, or leggings. It seems The Gap was correct when they predicted that leather would be the new denim and the stars can’t get enough! From J. Lo to Ciara to Kim K., any fashionista worth her Louboutins is sporting this tried and true staple of rock stars and bikers. And they’re taking leather out of the garage and making it fabulously uptown.

Who hasn’t seen J. Lo rocking the trend in her oft-played L’Oreal commercial? But the true devotees of this fashion statement can hardly be caught in anything else these days. Ciara seems absolutely smitten with leather – showing off her style savvy in everything from shorts to up-to-there thigh high boots to the leather staple of the season, leggings (in both brown and black!). One of the things that might make this trend so popular is its ability to play just as fresh from season to season. Ciara was killing it in leather shorts this spring, and she’s still devoted to the look as we head into winter. She and her gal pal Kim Kardashian even seem to take turns when it comes to who gets to wear leather – being snapped multiple times with one or other sporting black, leather leggings, but they never commit the faux pas of both showing up clad in the fabric of the moment (no “Bitch Stole My Look!” for these two on The Fashion Police!).

The Numbers Are In: Drake ‘Take Care’ Debuts #1

Well, he’s done it again. Drake has reclaimed the #1 spot with sophomore album, ‘Take Care’. Although earlier projections suggested the album would sell 700,000 in its first week, the album fell short, but only slightly, with 659,190. A major accomplishment for the artist. In fact, the album has sold over 200,00 more copies than his debut his, ‘Thank Me Later’. Congrats Mr. Graham! The rapper tweeted less than 24 hours ago,

“I can’t even find the words to express my appreciation..’thank you and I owe you’ is all that comes to mind…truly.”

Is Mariah Working On A New Album?

Seems like everyone’s working on new music these days, and Mariah may be one of them. The singer recently tweeted the above photo and a message that read,

“Back in the studio for a minute… like breathing. http://pic.twitter.com/r0CUsXZA

I’m a bit curious to know what Mariah’s new album will sound like. Perhaps, her children will  inspire her to take on a new sound now that she’s a mom. It’ll be interesting to see what she comes up with.

Nicki Minaj Reveals Name Of Sophomore Album

Nicki Minaj Performing At This Year’s American Music Awards

Yesterday, I reported Nicki Minaj is currently working on her sophomore album. Now, we’ve got confirmation from Nicki herself, via twitter. The rapper has even revealed the name of the pending album along with its release date.

She tweeted, “Pink Friday : ROMAN RELOADED will be released on Valentines Day, 2012. Heeeee’s baaaacccckkkkk,” she wrote. “Its not called Roman Reloaded. Its called PINK FRIDAY : ROMAN RELOADED!!!!!! 4 WORDS!!!! Love u guys soooo much!!! VALENTINES DAY biittcchh!”

As you may already know, ROMAN is one of Nicki’s alter egos she typically uses on her records. During her Roman impersonations her tone is more aggressive, a bit feisty, and anything goes.

At the moment no featured artists are expected to appear on the record. We’ll keep you posted.
