Here is the cover for Jay Z’sThe Blueprint 3 album.
Jigga man is also said to write a book titled “Decoded”. The book is suppose to be reveal more about the Blueprint trilogy and decoding his rhymes, what they really mean and what’s their significance. However, rumors have circulated that Jay is also said to reveal a little about his life behind the scenes with wife Beyonce Knowles.
To much dismay, during an interview with Extra and while doing a 4 day stint in Vegas Beyonce’s only response was, “I think he’s doing a book — it actually is not a biography.” When asked if Jay would ever write about their love story, Beyoncé replied, “It’s never gonna happen.”
Vivica A. Fox was spotted at the Toronto night club Muzik over the weekend where she celebrated her 45th birthday. Who knew Vivica was 45?! Just think, in 5 years she’ll be 50. I think the woman is in excellent shape!
Vivica’s birthday which was actually Thursday July 30th recently disclosed in an interview, with media mogul Wendy Williams, that she swore off rappers after the humiliation she faced after dating rapper 50 cents when asked if she was currently dating rapper Flo Rida.
After Drake’s fall during a performance during Lil’ Wayne’sAmerica Most Wanted tour Chris Brown was called in to fill his shoes. I know Chris was excited to be performing again after the infamous Rihanna beat down. He even did a Michael Jackson tribute by performing his hit single “Bille Jean”.
At his Camden, NJ concert last nightDrakefell on stage when his knee gave out from a previous injury. Drake tore his ACL not long ago and was advised by his doctor to stay off his knee and not perform. However, Drake defied doctor’s orders and decided to go through with his concert with Lil’ Wayne. And well, there you have it. The doctor was right.
Drake later tweeted this message: Drakkardnoir: All is well…on the bus laying down…getting surgery this week but I’m walking. Thank my whole YM family for the help! Lion Hearts!
Kanye took to his blog to clear up a report that had the rapper claiming to be the next ‘King Of Pop’ earlier this week . Here’s what he said.
“I was just listening to Wendy Williams’ [radio show] and heard some quote about me saying I’m the new King of Pop,” he wrote. “Not only did I not say that, I haven’t said anything. It makes me feel bad that obviously I made people feel that I would be corny enough to say something so whack after the passing of an idol, a legend and, more than that, a human being with feelings and family.
“It scares me to think what people will believe, without even a source,” he continued. “Any random person can type something on the internet and then the world believes it. I don’t talk to press or do TV or do promotions of any sort. I’ve stopped chasing and buying into fame. Fame is like cigarettes with no surgeon general warning. It destroys most people as it did to the true and only King of Pop. We exploit ourselves and eat our own egos ’till there is nothing left. I have a feeling that this won’t be the last false statement with my name on it, but this will be the last time I defend myself. I’m done.
I’m actually glad he took time to clear this rumor up. I was originally annoyed and frustrated to think he would have the nerve to make such a claim.
Yesterday during the 2009 Summer Television Critics Association Press tour, R&B singer Monica discussed her pending television show titled ‘Monica’ during the cable portion of the tour. The event took place at the Ritz-Carlton Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, California.
The show is said to debut this fall, October 27th, on BET at 10pm. It will be an eight episode series that follows the singer’s journey to record her fifth studio album ‘Still Standing’ , her clothing line Regions of Rock and how she tackles motherhood. The show is executive produced by Monica and James.
I commend Rocsi for doing this. So many people think these diseases affect young white women, and she is bringing attention to these diseases and the affect it has on the black and hispanic communities. Here’s a quote of what she said,
I just wanted to be skinny. That’s all I wanted. And it’s hard even now in this industry. God! We go through so much. All the women in this industry, this is so not us guys. When we wake up in the morning, this is not what you see. And it’s even hard with the blogs… Recently I wore my hair in a ponytail and they were talking about my ears. They were like “Keebler Elf” and this that and the other. And you try not to make it hurt, but it hurts and your appearance is everything.
The only reason why I came out. Alot of minority women go through this. I used to think that it was a “white” syndrome. I thought only white people were anorexic or bulimic and I didn’t think that anyone like me or that looked like me would go through this.
While taking an afternoon stroll in New York City yesterday Kelis was spotted with her and Nas’ newborn son Knight Jones. I’m actually surprised by this because she just had him a week ago. Howevr, she did a very good job of shielding him from photogs.
Here is what Kelis tweeted about her son recently.
I feel great. My baby is happy and healthy and I am no longer a host for a force stronger than me. Its breath taking.I had no reverence for pregnant women or really mothers before my experience. Not that I didn’t care. But it truly is something unrelateable until it becomes you. Its life, larger then life. I’m in awe of the whole process. And of course now. Like every other mother madly in love with this little guy.
Kanye’s big ego has some how convinced him that he should be called the new “King Of Pop”. He’s reportedly gone as far as trying to make contact with members of the Jackson family to obtain official permission to use the title, but haven’t received any response.
Here’s what Kanye had to say:
“You know everyone loves and respects Michael but times change. It’s so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I’m willing to take that on. There’s nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael’s crown and become the new King,” said West. “First there was Elvis, then there was Michael, now in the 21st century its Kanye’s time to rule. I have nothing but respect for Michael but someone needs to pick up where he left off and there’s nobody better than me to do that. I am the new King of Pop.”
To be honest, I am a little annoyed at the nerve at Kanye. You have a long way to go before you can hold the title of “King of Anything”. He’s obviously forgetting Michael’s legacy and his power and intrigue as a performer, song writer, producer, singer, entertainer, business man, empire etc. Kanye may have a successful music career but he will never be the charismatic performer Michael was. He will never be the humbled star Michael was. So Please….. get off it Mr. West. His title was earned not asked for.
In fact, through this article I just learned that, Michael was given the nickname the “King Of Pop” after a comment made by longtime friend Elizabeth Taylor.
