Beyoncè's New Lorèal Ad

1 comment:

Beyonce is STILL on the ball with her endorsements. Check out her latest Lorèal ad which is featured in the Holiday '09 catalog .

Everything from her hair, to her make up is by Lorèal. It's good that she doesn't look like a white woman this time around being that last year it caused a ruckus in the media. She looks STUNNING! No ifs, ands, or buts. Airbrushed or not, this picture is on point.

Dimpsettes what do you think about the latest ad?

LeToya Performs "Regret" Live & Live Ustream With Latavia

3 comments:

LeToya dropped by Good Day New York to promote her album "Lady Love" which is in store now. She sat and gave a brief interview and a performances of her latest single "Regret". Check it out above.

Now, this was a better performance than the last television appearance she did. I'm still not feeling the backup girls that dance & sing! Toya should get rid of them simply because this isn't the type of song to be dancing to..unless it;s the right dance moves which CLEARLY wasn't the case here. It's to see that she's getting a little more promotion after shifting her management. LeToya's album is currently being promoted by Alicia Keys's camp MBK Management with Jeff Robinson. That deal was finalize a few weeks ago being that LeToya was unhappy with the lack of promotion. She expressed her feelings during a live ustream on Aug. 24th & was also joined by long time friend and former bandmate from Destiny's Child Latavia, which can be viewed below..(over an hour long)


It's good to see how she connects with her fans & keeps it all real It gained over 1,674 views which is great. The video is an interesting watch. I just hope she gets the shine that she deserves. Time will tell! Hopefully this new management will do justice for her.

Beyonce Set To Perform "Sweet Dreams" At VMA's

No comments:

Queen B is set to perform her latest single "Sweet Dreams" at the MTV Video Music Awards. The tv show airs on September 14th Live. Along with 9 other nominations, Beyonce is said to rock the house on that night.

Being that she didn't ACTUALLY perform this song on her tour this past year, It will be interesting to see what she will serve up. I'm hoping to have this day off from work, or at least will be able to get off early! LOL!

Jay-Z Covers XXL Magazine

3 comments:

Jay-covers the October issue of XXL Magazine and speaks about his position in the rapping game, his legacy with Def Jam and more. Peep the cover above and a few snippets of the article below...

CRITICISM OF “D.O.A.”: 
“I’m not hating on young people. Like, when people say that, I’m like, What are you talking about? It’s just stupid. I’m not hating on young people… I’m not Bill Russell, [saying] Michael Jordan ain’t shit.

I’m saying Lil Wayne and Kanye are like LeBron and Kobe. My job as someone at the forefront of the game is to leave it in a better position than when I came in. Same way that Russell [Simmons] left it to me.

’Cause this thing saved my life. Literally. So I have a responsibility to it karmically. And after that it’s on you. I did my part. I made ‘D.O.A.’ I said it. I made the statement. I made the push. Here, y’all take it from here.”


HIS LEGACY AS FORMER DEF JAM RECORDS PRESIDENT: 
“So if you ask me to grade my performance as the president, I’d say A-plus. No one can bat a 100. It’s impossible. I mean, everyone is looking at my shit.

But if we really looked under the hood [of] every single [record exec] and the acts they put out in that time, I’d be comparable to anyone.”


HIS STANDING IN THE GAME: 
“But when I say I’m the best, I don’t say that outta my ass. I say that with all my stats behind me. I put that against anybody. I mean anybody. I really believe that… I believe in a lot of things.


I believe that ‘SportsCenter’ is the best thing on TV. I shouldn’t have to prove it. But I do have these stats to prove it. I’m talking about real run. I’m not talking about years off. I’m talking about straight—boom, boom, boom—back to back.

We’re not talking about heritage acts either. We’re not talking about respect what I’ve done. I’m talking No. 1 [albums] 10 times. The Beatles is the only one [to have more 
No. 1 albums]. They got 19, and if I get a surge of creativity, I could make nine albums next year.”

Dare I call him arrogant? Serious...9 albums next year? I could bet any kind of money he wouldn't be able to do that. He rate his time in the Def Jam position an A PLUS?? Come on Jay..and claiming to be the BEST just because of your statz behind you...THAT I can agree on lmao! Roc-a-Wear, Roc Nation, The 40/40 Club, 14 Studio Albums, Married to the baddest chick in the game...lol I think he deserves that title for the simple fact that no one else in the game has done or is doing all that he's done or is doing. He is about to be the shit now! LOL. SO he can be arrogant for now. He just can't put out 9 albums next year if e even tried. So that shouldn't have even been stated by him. GEEEEEZ!

Dimpsettes, is Jay-Z the BEST?

BLAST from the PAST: H-Town - "Knockin' The Boots"

4 comments:

Dimpsettes, this weeks BLAST from the PAST is brought to you by an R&B trio from the early 90's called H-Town. Peep some info from them lifted from Wikipedia.

The vocal group that was formed in 1992 by Keven "Dino" Conner, who was the lead singer, his twin brother Solomon "Shazam" Conner, and their longtime friend Darryl "G.I." Jackson. They took the local nickname for their home city of Houston, Texas as the name of their group.

The group, as a trio officially released 3 studio albums from 1993 - 1997. The group was working on a 4th album in 2003 until tragedy struck killing the group's lead singer Dino on Jan. 8, 2003.

Dino was killed in an automobile accident in Houston, Texas. According to police, Dino had just left a recording studio and was a passenger in a car being driven by his girlfriend, 22-year-old Teshya Rae Weisent. Their vehicle was struck by an SUV that ran a red light, and both Dino and Weisant were killed.

Three people were in the SUV, all of whom fled after the accident. One of them, Juan Diaz, was later apprehended, however, and faced a felony charge of failure to stop and render aid.

At the time of Conner's death H-Town was said to have just finished what would become their fourth album. They eventually released their reunion album Imitations of Life on October 12, 2004.

H-Town still tours and performs as a duo comprised of the two remaining members, G.I. and Shazam. They are set to release their fifth album Child Support later this year.


So good to hear that the group is still together as a duo. It's such a shame that Dino was killed. He was the best looking one out of the 3. Even though he had a twin, they weren't identical, lol Dino would've made a straight guy go gay lmao! I didn't even know there was a video to this song. I know my aunt and I used to listen to this song ALL THE TIME! We made our own remix to it and everything when I was growing up. She used to always babysit me and we listened to this song. I wonder if she saw the video? They were a true R&B group & I really enjoyed this song, now I'm enjoying the video lol!!! I hope you all enjoy as well.

LeToya Predicted To Sell 30,000-35,000 Copies First Week

2 comments:

Reports are showing that based on LeToya's first day album sales, it's expected to sell between 30,000 - 35,000 copies within the first week. Which will put her at either number 5 or 6 on the Billboard's 200 albums. That's DEFINITELY NOT GOOD! I was hoping it would do so much better. LeToya did a hell of a lot of promotion for this album. She did so many radio interviews, concerts & performances. I guess it would've helped if she got on T.V. and performed, gave a show interviews and performances on Ellen or Tyra or The View anything. Good Morning America, there's so many opportunities. Even if those sale predictions are true, I feel that her album has potential to sale a lot more within it's fist few months or so.

Most people believe it's because the entire album is almost strictly R&B. She has no mainstream pop songs like she did when she was with Destiny's Child which is surprising being that she helped write most of Destiny's Child's songs. I know LeToya can pull off up-tempo songs. She did it with "She Ain't Got..." but it's just a song that I'm not feeling. To me, it wasn't the right kind of up-tempo song to release, and I'm sure millions of other people agree with me because the song STILL hasn't charted on any of the billboard charts. IDK, I like her album, and feel it has great potential, I jsut hope others feel the same. LeToya deserves her shine.

Fresh Music: Drake - "Forever" feat. Kanye, Lil Wayne & Eminem

1 comment:

Drake is doing it BIG. He's already worked with a ton of the big name rappers in the game & now he can add Eminem & Kayne to his lengthy list. This is called "Forever", check it out below.



This track is hotter than that THANG! Drake can really sing his ass off. I love his voice. Eminem definitely did his thing on this track. He rapped like it was no one's business. Kanye his featured on everyone's everything LMAO from Jay-Z to Jamie and now Drake. He knows how to keep his bank and pockets heavy. Lil WAYNE has did the dayum thing by signing the most anticipated rapper in the game. Everyone is looking for Drake. Everyone is talking about him wondering who he is and where he came from. I know Wayne is loving it cause I sure in the hell would be lol!

Fresh Music: Jay-Z - "Venus vs Mars"

2 comments:

As we draw closer and closer to the release of Jay-Z's "The Blueprint 3" album, more and more tracks are surfacing. Check out the latest which was produced by Timbaland called "Venus vs Mars". Listen to it below..


Though it sounds as if it's unfinished. I still like it. I wonder if he'll change the track listing again, because he said every time a song leaks, he goes back into the stupid studio to record more new ones, then switches up the track listing. I can't see him doing that too many times being that his album drops in less than a month. I may just get this cd, so far all the songs I've heard are pretty decent to be coming from Jay. Me likie!

Dimpsettes, is Jay-Z's "Venus vs Mars" HOT or NOT?

Here's another track from JoJo, who is currently still in the process of suing her record label. The song was produced by The Jam. Check it out below..


I like it. I'm just curious as to who it is that's constantly leaking her music...could it be her? Or her record label. One of the 2. Anywho this song sounds pretty nice. I don't like it as much as i like "Forever In My Life" but this song can stand pretty much on it's own. The vocals are nice and again, that melody from the piano just draws me in.

Chris Brown & Rihanna Details EMEGRE!!

2 comments:

The official documents of Rihanna & Chris Brown's case were obtained by the one and only TMZ. It reveals what happened the night Rihanna was attacked, blow by blow, punch by punch, bite by bite. Take a look at the lengthy actions that took place that night.

"The victim said she became enraged and slammed both of her fists against the dashboard on the passenger side of the car they were in. She reported that the defendant then pulled the vehicle over and reached over her with his right hand. He opened the car door and tried to force the victim out."

According to the report, Brown was unable to shove Rihanna out of the car because she was wearing a seatbelt.

The report continues, "When he could not force her to exit, he took his right hand and shoved her head against the passenger window of the car. "

"The victim then faced the defendant and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then continued driving."

"As he drove, he continued to punch the victim in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand."

Rihanna told cops the "assault caused her mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter over her clothing and the inside of the car."

Rihanna told cops after Brown "stopped his first assault .. she looked in the mirror and saw her eye beginning to swell.

[Brown] looked at [Rihanna] and said 'I'm going to beat the shit out of you when we get home! You wait and see!'"

Rihanna told police she tried to call her personal assistant, but she didn't pick up -- but Rihanna says she "pretended to talk, saying, 'I'm on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there.'"

Rihanna says she pulled the act "because she did not want to get beat anymore."

But after Rihanna's fake phone conversation, she claims Brown "looked at [Rihanna] and said, "You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I'm really going to kill you!"

Rihanna told cops that Brown unleashed a second wave of punches, "during which time [Rihanna] interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face." He continued to punch her on her left arm, which caused a contusion on her left tricep.

At that point Rihanna tried texting her assistant. Brown threw the phone out of the car, stopped the vehicle and Rihanna then tried opening her door to get out, but Brown sped off and the door shut with Rihanna inside.

Brown placed Rihanna in a headlock while he drove, then bit her on her left ear. The car eventually stopped and Rihanna took the keys out of the ignition, and Brown began to punch her again in the face and arms. He placed her in a headlock and started applying pressure to her carotid artery. She couldn't breathe and began to lose consciousness. She tried freeing herself, and Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released her.

Rihanna took off her shoe and tried breaking the passenger window, and he continued to punch her.

Eventually, Brown got out of the car. Rihanna opened the door and continued screaming. Brown began punching her again. He got back in the car and screamed "Where are my f***ing keys?" He got out, looked for the keys in vain, and when he could not find them removed several CDs and walked away.

Officers were called and observed numerous contusions and abrasions to Rihanna's face and forehead, as well as bruising on her left arm. There were other injuries as well.

Investigators determined Brown was wearing a large ring on his right hand which caused several of Rihanna's injuries.

OMFG! Reading this makes me dislike Chris Brown all over again. BUT this still doesn't say WHY Rihanna was enraged. What made her slam her fists into the dashboard. What happened?! The pic posted above is from the SAME NIGHT of the incident. They were leaving the pre-grammy party. Witnesses said Rihanna & Chris were arguing the entire time while at the party. in the pic, Chris does look aggravated and irritated. But from what? I"m sure he didn't just BEAT her for slammin' her fists into his dashboard. Something else happened. Even so, she still didn't deserve to be beaten and bit like that. Headlocks and shit, ALL WHILE DRIVING. He's gotta be pretty dayum talented to do all that while driving. Shit I can't even listen to the radio and drive. lmao I thought this situation was over and done with, but once word gets out about the entire ordeal, it'll start up gossip all over again.

New Kelly Rowland Photo Shoot & New Album Info

2 comments:

Pictured above is the beautiful miss Kelly Rowland. She was photographed with USA Today. Kelly also spilled to beans on a her album and a future release date...peep another pic plus the report below..

“Here [In America], sometimes it’s like my music didn’t quite work, but overseas it’s on top of everybody’s chart. I’ve had more international success than domestic success, and I think that opens my eyes up to music. I mean, I just got back from performing in Lebanon. Lebanon!” she says.

“I have a new boost of energy. All the creative juices are flowing, and I’m having so much fun in the studio because I’m making dance records. And I’m working with producers who are just as curious about the sound internationally, too.”

“I don’t ever want to get in a box to where I’m thinking that this is the only place that can ever exist,” she says. “I love being overseas just as much as I love being home."

According to Kelly, the album is due out late 2009/Early 2010.


These pictures look stuninng. I love them! I'm happy that Kelly has found her niche. Question remains, will her next album do exceptionally well over here if it's gonna be more of a dance album? Michelle's album was mostly dance and it tanked. So I don't know. Then on the contrary, you have people like Lady Gaga who did extremely well with her dance album. The industry is TOUGH! There's no telling what will happen with who! Nevertheless, I'm rooting for Kelly!!

Beyonce Interviews Aaliyah

3 comments:

Check out Beyonce giving Aaliyah an interview, which was back in 2000 at the MTV awards I believe. Two of my most cherished female artists, together, talking and laughing just having fun. I love them both. It's good to know that Beyonce was a fan of Aaliyah. That makes me happy, and that she was acknowledged as one of the hottest female artists.

I bet Beyonce won't hold a mic to interview ANYONE now-a-days! Hell she'll probably charge for that lmao!! I still love her though!

Aaliyah Performs "Journey To The Past" Live

No comments:

This was in 1998, Aaliyah was then the YOUNGEST African-American to perform on the Oscars. She sang "Journey To The Past" which was music from the motion picture "Anistacia" which was also nominated for an Oscar that night. Peep it above.

This is one of the many performances that proved Aaliyah could really sing if given the right material. This was one of the only 2 power ballads I ever heard from her. I'm sure she would've done plenty more of them had she'd still been here with us. This is why I hate when people compare Ciara & Cassie to this woman above, because Aaliyah actually had a voice. She could sing the hell out of a song. Where as someone like Cassie couldn't dare pull off these kind of vocal notes. Ciara, I've never heard her attempt a power ballad. I've never heard Cassie attempt one as well but I know she wouldn't be able to do it. Ciara could possitlby have potential but I digress...Lets celebrate Aaliyah and watch this video above.

Christina Milian Speaks On Race & Hollywood

2 comments:

C. Milli dropped by the "Today's Show" and brief chit chatted about her race and issues in hollywood about her not looking "Hispanic enough" to take on latina roles in films. Peep it above.

Wow! She changed her last name from Flores to Milian. It sucks that the industry can be so harsh. If she isn't normally "Hispanic enough" then isn't she could ACT like she is..isn't that's what acting is all about? I can see if that was the case for a MAJOR ROLE like in the movie Selena or something like that. Then I can see where the Hispanic nature falls into place. But for minor roles...come on now.

Beyonce To Receive Billboard's "Woman of the Year" Award

2 comments:

It was officially announced today that Beyonce will receive Billboard's Woman of the Year award on Oct 2nd due to her major success over the past 12 months. Peep the interview below..

Billboard announced today (Aug. 25) that Beyoncé will be accepting its Woman Of The Year Award at the 2009 Billboard Women In Music Event, taking place on Oct. 2 in New York City.

The honor, given to a female recording artist that has inspired the music business with her success, leadership and new ideas, will be awarded to the singer for her accomplishments over the past 12 months.

In the last year, Beyoncé kicked off her world tour "I Am..." in support of her third solo album "I Am...Sasha Fierce," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in November and features the hit singles "If I Were A Boy," "Single Ladies," "Halo," "Ego" and "Sweet Dreams."

The tour also showcased Beyoncé's philanthropic side as she gave 2,500 tickets to families affected by the auto industry crisis in Detroit and joined forces with General Mills Hamburger Helper and Feeding America to deliver 3.5 million meals to local food banks.

"Beyoncé is multi-platinum artist and a multi-talented woman who clearly embodies the qualities of excellence and achievement that the Billboard Woman Of The Year Award was created to honor," said Bill Werde, Billboard's Editorial Director, about Beyoncé, who is the only performer in the 51-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 to top the chart for 10 weeks or more with a group and as a solo artist. "She has not only influenced pop culture with her hit songs and signature dance moves, but has inspired women everywhere with her unique style, business savvy and dedication to charitable causes."

The Billboard Women in Music Event celebrates the most powerful and talented women in the music business and is also held in conjunction with the Women In Music Power Players List issue, which recognizes the top female music executives who are leading the industry with their artistic and business vision.

Beyonce is very powerful and talented. She also has accomplished A LOT within one year! Once multi-platinum selling album, 7 music video, 2 hit movies, her rapidly growing clothing line, 110 tour dates, commercials..I can go on and on and on. I think she deserves it!

Miss Kelly Rowland & David Guetta stopped by the Miss Universe Pageant and gave a live performance of "When Love Takes Over" while the hopefuls walked their walk and strutted their stuff to the hit song. Peep it above.

Kelly sounded great as always while performing this song. Just one quick question. What is up with this constant blue she's been wearing lately? It looks good but that's all I've been seeing her in. Blue this, blue that, blue blue blue lol. That's my favorite color!

Fresh Music: Alexandra Burke - "Bad Boys" feat. Flo Rida

2 comments:

Take a listen to Alexandra Burke first official single which debuted earlier today on the radio stations in the U.K. The song is called "Bad Boys" feat. Flo Rida which is lifted from the starlets debut album currently untitled but has a fall release date. Check it out below..


I actually like this. I didn't think I would but i really do! Her vocals are on point in this song. The only thing that I'm baffled about is this doesn't sound like the kind of music she was saying that she was doing. She's into the urban songs, but this sound so mainstream and popish. I she Beyonce was her idol, but this is far from something that Beyonce will attempt to sing. This is along the lines of Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, or Britney Spears. It just doesn't fit her persona. But it's a dayum good song. I like it. If this is what she was going for then more power to her! Flo Rida's rapping part kind of reminds me off Nelly and Fergie's "Party People". It's good to see someone's dream come true right before their eyes. Just a few years ago, she was dreaming of this moment and now she's living it. Go ALEX!!

UPDATE! Youtube keeps removing the videos, so to listen, the link is posted in the Dimpsette Lounge under "AB-BB", you can listen and download it..

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that today's posts will be filled with a lot of Aaliyah's videos, pics, & performances. Here's one of them. Aaliyah can SANG! She actually had a voice unlike people that's compared to her like Cassie! Check it out above, hope you like.

Aaliyah's 8th Year Anniversary

No comments:

Exactly 8 years ago today, we lost one of the most beloved and talented artists in the industry. I remember my reaction just like it was yesterday. I cried for weeks, one of the most beautiful & great hearted person in the world has left. I loved Aaliyah, more than Beyonce. I was an Aaliyah STAN! She was all I knew and listened to. I had dreams about her like crazy. I even told my sister about a dream that I had the night she died. Basically, in my dream I saw Aaliyah, in all white body suit with a ponytail in her head. A few months later, the "More Than A Woman" video was released and she looked the VERY SAME WAY she did in my dream. I was really wowed by that. I felt as if she was speaking to me in some sort of way. Just for that to happen was amazing for me. I'm sure many of you loved Aaliyah.

She was very talented and up & coming. She scored her first number 1 on the Billboard charts with "Try Again" in 2000. She started acting & getting lead roles. She was starting a movement, a transition but it was cut short in the end. This post is intended to e a good note, instead of mourning, I will celebrate and share 2 of my favorite videos and songs that Aaliyah did."Journey To The Past" from the Anistacia Soundtrack & "The One I Gave My Heart To" from her sophomore album "One In A Million". Enjoy. I love you Aaliyah.

"Journey To The Past"

Drake is not ugly, lol he's weird looking. LOL. It's not a bad thing. He says that he's an honest man which reflects in his music and he wants women to know that. Almost as if he's rapping on a positive note, which he is. He's not shooting down women or calling them hoes and bitches and saying that they suckin' on his knob and what not, unlike label mate BOW WOW! LOL! Enuff of that...check out the interview above.

Leona Lewis Titles Her New Album & Eyes Nov. 17th For Release

2 comments:

Sensational singer Leona Lewis has officially titled her new album and gave a release date for the highly anticipated project. It is the follow up to her platinum selling album "Spirit" which was released internationally in 2008. The new album is called "Echo" and will be released on November 17th. Peep the report below..

Simon Cowell protégée Leona Lewis has decided on a title and release date for her new album. Echo, the follow-up to Lewis' platinum-plus 2008 debut, Spirit, is due Nov. 17.

"An echo describes a big, organic sound," Lewis says of her choice.

Lewis is recording in various cities, including New York and Los Angeles. Though one track called Don't Let Me Down has

leaked online, neither the lineup of songs nor the list of contributors has been finalized. "I'm working with incredible songwriters and producers, and my music has really evolved," Lewis says.

Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote and produced Lewis' chart-topping breakthrough hit, Bleeding Love, is one confirmed collaborator, and a number of top artists have joined her in the studio, including Justin Timberlake, Ne-Yo and producer Timbaland.

I'm excited. I really didn't like "Don't Let Me Down", well I guess I gotta wait to hear the finial version of the song to judge. But "Strangers" & "I Got U" are nice and on point. I bet that will be all that we hear from the album until it's actually released. Simon already has launched a criminal investigation on the hackers who are responsible for leaking Leona and Alexandra's new music. He's all about business!! I also think the album's titled "Echo" is pretty cool. When you think about her explanation of it, an echo is really a big organic sound, as well as her voice. It's HUGE & I LOVE IT! I can't wait to see an album cover. Now her last album was released in the U.K. before it made it's way to the USA, I wonder if it will be the same case this time around?

Fresh Music: Bow Wow - "I Love My Cash Money"

4 comments:

Bow Wow just signed with Cash Money Records almost 2 weeks ago and he already has an official mixtape coming out caleld "Green Light". Last week a song was leaked called "Love Struck" which was an ode to Pussycat Doll member Melody Thornton. This new track is called "I Love Cash Money". Check it out below..


This is one of the reasons why I dislike most rap artist & their music. Because of the stupid ass lyrics. Yes, I posted this just to say that. Bow Wow, we understand that you're grown and what not, but there is no need for to to be saying people sucking on that thing of yours while you're playing your X-Box 360. Seriously..suckin pipe? All of that is NOT needed to sell records. Jay-Z not running around saying bitches sucking on this and that, nor is Kayne, Drake, Kid Cudi or none of them. Granted I can understand a few curse words here or there, but when it goes as far as this song has...then man, it shouldn't be made. If you think that sells records then come again. Mentioning Drake, Lil Wayne and the entire Young/Cash Money crew in this song is not gonna help it progress. Nice try. No one raps about those thing anymore Bow Wow. As Jay-Z & your label mate Drake said, we "OFF THAT". Get wit the program G, it's 2009, if you keep this up, you won't be around too much longer to rap about how much you love money. Simply put, in my opinion, this was an "ASS KISSING" song.

Ciara has been in L.A. for quite some time now. I'm glad she went back to the long weave. The short hair looked nice, but I like it long. As mentioned previously, she has been in and out the studio with Justin Timberlake. Rumor has it that she's planning on re-releasing "Fantasy Ride" & is collaborating more with Justin Timberlake to create more songs on the same lines of "Love, Sex, & Magic". Many also believe that this is why she pulled from Britney Spears's "Circus" tour bcause she's working on new music. Also she has been hinting on her twitter for a while now about a musical surprise. But who knows, these are all rumors. So hey, maybe Ciara can make a comeback....Wishing her all the best on trying to do so.

The song is nice, the video..not so nice lol! These film makers stretch the HELL out of MOVIES don't they? This is like the 5th or 6th "Bring It On" movie lmao, that DIDN'T make it to theaters. Waste of money and time in my eyes.

LeToya Performs "She Ain't Got" Live

3 comments:

LeToya stopped by KTLA and give a performance of her current single "She Ain't Got" as well a s a brief interview. Check it out above..

Now, times for MY 2 cents...I didn't like it. Hands down. I don't even really like this song. The background vocalists we're OUTRAGEOUSLY off key, and weren't keeping up with eachother. The dancing was kinda odd with the microphone stands in place. IT also sucked that LeToya sang over her record instead it it all being done live, instruments and all...meh...I wish she would've gave alive TV performance of "Not Anymore" which is STILL being played on the radio. I have heard "She Ain't Got" not ONE time on a station here...and from the looks of this probably never will. Lets move on to the next single LeToya! But Big ups to her for trying something different.

Fresh Video: Mary J Blige - "Stronger"

4 comments:

Above is the video for Mary's new single "Stronger" which will be featured on her new album which is also called "Stronger" that's due out in Nov. The video is also the lead single for the movie "More Than A Game". Check it out above.

The song is okay...not something that I'd personally listen to. The video looks great though. Mary still looks good. Her voice is definitely still there. I'm just hoping the album serves more than this...

Dimpsettes..any comments?

JoJo Sues Record Company

No comments:

Singer JoJo has had enough with her record label and the delay of her new album. She's so fed up with the situation that she's taking the record company to court! Peep the report below..

In a lawsuit just filed in NYC courts, JoJo claims her record company shoved her into a musical "limbo" because they wont let her out of her contract -- and they won't let her record a new album either!

JoJo, real name Joanna Levesque, now wants a judge to force Da Family Entertainment to cut her loose -- plus she wants at least $500,000 for her troubles.

JoJO, I ain't mad atcha. Do what you have to do. Why aren't the letting her release her album that ALREADY DONE?! That is kind of messed up. She spent money and time on this new project and her label won't let her release it. That's not right. She already released a youtube video and vented about her frustrations but it hasn't helped. Hopefully this will get it going. I would've asked for more than $500,000 LOL. But sue them JoJo, sue the shirts right off their backs! I'm with you the whole step of the way.

The Simpsons Gone AFRICAN!!

9 comments:

Oh YES! You read it right and your eyes ARE NOT playing tricks on you. In the above pic, it features America's favorite family, in African Decent. Yup, The Simpsons recently under went a make over for the launch of their show in Africa. Peep the report below..

Don't have an elephant, man: The Simpson family have been turned into Angolans for the launch of the show in the African continent
Angolan advertising agency Executive Center have taken an original animated promotional shot of Bart, Homer, Maggie Lisa and Marge sitting together on a couch and altered it to show them as Africans.

Their yellow skin has been replaced with a much darker brown skin while Marge's blue hair has been switched for a jet black afro hairdo. Lisa's hair is now braided and the entire family are shown wearing Angolan-inspired clothing and flip flops.

The family cat has completely disappeared from the new shot. Also missing are a lamp, table and telephone which have been replaced by huge stereo speakers.

And the picture on the wall of a yacht on the ocean is now a picture of Serengeti elephant scene.

Underneath the family are the words: 'The Simpsons now in Angola.'

However, it is believed the family will keep their traditional yellow look when the series airs on digital service DStv next month.

I think this is pretty dayum cool...too bad it won't air in America. I guess I can always watch it online...

Omarion Asked To Leave Young Money For A Better Offer

4 comments:

Last night rumors were flying all across twitter nation saying that Omarion was dropped from Lil Wayne's "Young Money" label, following a tweet from a label associate saying "Omarion is no longer Young Money ... the song they leaked ft. Wayne is not official .. good luck 2 him in his future." Well, today Omarion has released a statement on big brother, Marques Houston's, official blog stating that he wasn't dropped and that he asked to be released from the label. Check it out below..

“I have a lot of respect and admiration for the genius of Lil ‘Wayne and the entire Young Money family. I asked to be released from the label to pursue other opportunities that were recently presented to me.

Because of our relationship, Lil’ Wayne had no issue with us ending our business relationship and released me from the label. Lil’ Wayne and I have nothing but love for each other, there is no Beef.

I also wanted to make it clear that my company nor did I, leak the song, “I Get It In” and I want to dispel any rumors that have surfaced.

I appreciate my relationship with Young Money/ Cash Money and look forward to doing business in the future.


There will be a major announcement regarding my career and my new album, “Ollusion” coming next week. Stay tuned…” –Omarion

If there's not an announcement next week about an official label HOME for Omarion, then in my opinion, he was DROPPED from Young Money. Unless he works hard and try to get signed to another label within this next week. This seems kind of fishy to me. Well, I'm sure we'll hear from Lil Wayne pretty soon and he'll speak on what went down. Maybe Omarion really was offered better opportunities from else where. Who knows. All I know is that he was previously signed to Epic Records, he was then dropped. Then was supposed to sign with Timbaland, that never happened, then comes Young Money, which is no longer apart of. Tsk Tsk Tsk..Things went from BAD to WORSE for him. Good Luck O!

Fresh Music: Mariah Carey - "100%" (Snippet)

2 comments:

Check out the snippet to Mariah Carey's rumored lead single to the movie "Precious". The Tyler Perry & Oprah production is set to it theaters this November and this will supposedly serve as the movie's official lead single. Check it out blow, it's a 30 sec clip.


This is what I like to hear! Something I can definitly listen to on a regular basis. Even though it's only a 30 sec. snippet, I know I'll like the full version, cuz from the sounds of this clip, it has ipod written ALL OVER IT! I don't know if it's true that this will serve as the lead single for the movie "Precious" or not, but this type of song doesn't really fit that type of movie. But regardless it's a good track. Maybe there's hope for Mariah after all! lol!!

Fresh Video: Jay-Z - "Run This Town" feat. Rihanna & Kanye West

2 comments:

Check out the much anticipated vidoe above of Jay'Z's "Run This Town" feat. Rihanna & Kanye West.

I love it! Rihanna's fashion is OFF THE CHAIN! Her voice is so amazingly strong and she looks good in this video. Jay-Z is definitely representing ROC-NATION to the FULLEST! They Roc Symbol was done over a million times in this video, Rihanna was even doing it. I wonder if she'll cross over to Roc-Nation? Kanye West...2 video premieres in under a day, he's doing the dayum thing like I said earlier. The theme of this video fits the song perfectly. I think I like the track more now that I've seen the video for it. The protests, the fire, the people, the bandanas, the dressed in all black like the omen look. 2 thumbs up from me.
