‘Love And Hip Hop’ Chrissy vs. Yandy [Part II]

Chrissy and Yandy are at it again, and this time, it’s during the reunion special where none of the ladies can actually sit down together in the same room. Like I’ve mentioned before, the special have been filmed separately because tension is high and many of the ladies of the show refuse to be in the same room together. Following the big blow out between models Kimberlla and Erica Mena the producers ban and glasses from being on set. Now, although months have passed and they haven’t seen one another Chrissy and Yandy are throwing shots at each other again.

Check out the below clip where Yandy addresses the “real problem” between Chrissy, Jimmy and herself and Chrissy talks how she feels Yandy stepped out of line and that she’s actually paved a way from Yandy to be relevant on the show. She even goes as far as saying “Bow down b*tch”. Wow! Can’t wait to see how this all pulls together.


Drake Sued Over “Marvin’s Room”

No song in 2011 glorified the ‘drunk dial’ like Drake’s “Marvin’s Room.” Now it seems that drunk dial is going to cost Drake a lot more than hurt feelings.

The mysterious woman who asks the famous “Are you drunk right now?” line at the beginning of the song is in fact Erica Lee, Drake’s ex-girlfriend. She’s now suing the super star for use of her voice on the song. During their romantic and business relationship last year, Eric contributed ideas and her voice to the song with the idea that she would receive credit and payment for its creation.

According to Billboard, “Last year, Drake allegedly agreed to work with Lee on “Marvin’s Room” and split the proceeds. Lee says she was asked to record the song’s “hook” as well as the opening monologue that would serve as the thematic framework for a song about Drake’s yearning for an ex-girlfriend and how his fame interfered with his love life. “Plaintiff’s contribution is highly significant to the overall work,” says the complaint.”


Madonna Reigns As Queen During The 2012 Super Bowl Halftime Show

Madonna‘s still got it! Queen Madge proved just why she has reigned for nearly three decades in the entertainment industry, pulling off a great halftime show during Sunday night’s 46th NFL Super Bowl, The New York Giants vs. The New England Patriots.

Madonna performed new single “Give Me All Your Luvin’”, for the first time, and brought along rappers Nicki Minaj and M.I.A who are also featured on the track. She joined forces with LMFAO with a remix of the duo’s hit ‘Party Rock Anthem’ and ‘I’m Sexy And I Know It’. She also performed classics such as ‘Vogue’, ‘Music’, and a medley of ‘Open Your Heart’ and ‘Express Yourself’, ‘Like a Prayer’ joined in by Cee-Lo.


Willow Smith Goes Bald!

Eleven year old Willow Smith has gone bald! Although she’s wanted to do so since she was 9 her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, refused to let her take all her hair off. She’d been rocking a long fringe with the sides shaved for a while but Willow finally got her way. All gone!

Willow also released this photo with the caption “Dance your feelings out….”

Although there seems to be some controversy over letting an 11 year old shave all her hair off, I commend her confidence and individuality. Many women, especially in the African American community, spend hundreds and thousands of dollars a year on their hair because their identity is warped in how the style their hair, whether its theirs or not.
Besides, it’s hair and it will grow back. So, what’s the hang up? Is it because she’s 11 or because she’s gone bald, ore even both? Would love to hear your thoughts!

Ne-Yo Leaves Def Jam To Become CEO of Motown

He says, “I’m honored that I’ve been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility; terrified because I know that playing this role in the fashion of one of my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson — these are big shoes to fill.

[New Music] R. Kelly: “Share My Love”

R. Kelly is back with new single “Share My Love”. He’s anticipated to drop his 11th studio album, ‘Write Me Back’, some time this Spring. The single is reminiscent of that of his last album, ‘Love Letter’. Check it out.

R&B music at its finest. R. Kelly is perhaps the best artist at writing genuine “make you feel good” love songs and I’m glad he’s coming out with another album. He’s talented. Gotta give him that.

Kelly is said to also be working on a second album he may also drop this year titled, ‘Black Panties’. While ‘Write Me Back’ shares his loving and romantic side ‘Black Panties’ may take us back to his “Bump N’ Grind” days. Either one, I’m we’ll all love it. Bring on the music Kelly!
