Beyoncé hit the naysayers hard when she opened up for her Super Bowl press conference this afternoon. Live on the NFL network, the diva opened by belting out the national anthem and finished off by asking "Any Questions?"
She also tackled questions about the famous lip syncing at the inaugural ball last weeks ago and she admitted to singing over a pre-recorded track due to the weather and the importance of the event.
Lastly she revealed that she has a 12 minute set list and a big surprise for her fans after her super bowl performance. She encouraged fans to stay tuned to find out what it is.

You'll never know what to believe now a days. The media is so crazy, but personally, I believe what comes from the horses mouth. For years, there have been rumors that Whitney Houston lip synced her career defining "Star Spangled Banner".
Well, according to her mother Cissy Houston, it didn't happen. She said that Whitney SANG the song, and she sang the hell out of it. In an interview with Insider, she simply said that Whitney wouldn't do it. Check it out below.

Looks like Michelle Williams has been caught in a big fat lie. Weeks before Beyoncé's highly anticipated Super Bowl performance, news leaked that Destiny's Child had planned on reuniting during the show for a performance. More fuel was tossed into that pit after a photo of LeToya Luckett and Mathew Knowles surfaced online indicating that she was apart of that reunion.
Well, since then, Michelle has done a few interviews to promote her upcoming new musical FELA in which she stars in.

Beyoncé has been the talk of the nation over the past week due to her alledged lip syncing at the inaugural ball. I wouldn't be surprised if she's not invited back to do anything with Barack and Michelle Obama since she stole their attention. But I digress....
On February 3rd. she will again become the talk of the nation because she will grace the stage of the Super Bowl during the halftime show and give a performance of a lifetime. Above is a snap shot of her rehearsing for the gig and you can check out another after the break.
As reported yesterday, here's the official video for Nicole Scherzinger's newest single called "Boomerang". The clip was shot last year in London and the song serves as the first single from her upcoming sophomore effort.
While I still don't really care for the song, the video for it is actually pretty addicting. Yes the concept and visuals are cheap, but the outcome of it looks pretty good. Not to mention how great she was looking. Check it out below.
Solange is currently in Europe performing and promoting her new E.P. "True" which was released last year. The crittaclly acclaimed effort drew so much attenton and reciveved praise that she decided to tour for it. First stop was Europe and then next month she will be hitting the U.S.

We all know about those crazy stories over the years about Keri Hilson beefing with Ciara, and Beyoncé. Then reports were flying around that she's been blacklisted throughout the industry because of her disdain for certain people. But the singer herself just cleared rumors about it all.
Recently, she partnered with Gillette for a new social experiment called "Kiss & Tell". She was interviewed by a few media outlets and was quesitoned about the mysterious beef between other female acts and she spoke on it. Check out the short interview below.
Beyoncé set the world on fire a few days ago when she sang the Nation Anthem for President Barack Obama's inauguration. She received nothing but rave reviews about the performance. Some of her delusional fans even deemed it greater than the legendary Whitney Houston's performance. All was fine and dandy, until the news broke about the entire performance being lip synced...which I'm sure you've heard about by now so I won't even go into detail.
That alone, as you know, set the world on fire again. It was breaking news on several news outlets. I was watching the news and the anchorwoman broke the news right after she reported someone being shot on Chicago's south side. I was like okay, this is bizarre. The fact that she lip synced was talked about more than the actual inauguration itself and Michelle Obama's fashion choice & new hair due put together.
Celebrities even added their two cents. Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Lopez and ex band mate Michelle Williams all got a few seconds of fame from the hiccup. There have been conflicting reports of statements being retracted. People are saying it was lip synced, others are saying no it was live, some people are saying that she sang over the recorded track at a low tone. But I want to know what do you think...hell or even if you care for that matter. But first, here's what I think.
Hit-Boy shows the groupies love on the remix to “Fan” which features a brand new verse from 2 Chainz. The original cut appears on his debut album HITstory. The “Ni**as in Paris” producer has partnered with Interscope to launch his own label, Hits Since 87, Inc.
The first release will be his compilation "All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of" featuring his signees Audio Push and K. Roosevelt. “#AllIveEverDreamedOf coming soon. #HS87 The production is the best i’ve ever done and i’m excited for y’all to hear the new raps,” he tweeted.
Additionally, Hit-Boy will perform along with Naughty by Nature, Solange, Trinidad James, and more at the 6th Annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia on June 1. He was recently in the studio with M.I.A. and Britney Spears cooking up some new material. Check it out below via Rap-Up.
T-Boz from the hit 90's group TLC just released a brand new single entitle "Champion". The song comes after the songstress wrapped up her four part reality television show "Totally T-Boz". With the show closing, a new single was birthed.
The empowering and uplifting anthem has been released on iTunes and all profits and proceeds from the sale will benefit sickle cell and leukemia foundations, which is a condition the singer suffers from.
With the release of this new single comes news that she and Chilli will be releasing a brand new music together this year to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of TLC as a group. They will record two new songs and remix one of their older hits. Exiting huh? Any who, listen to the song below.
Rihanna and Chris Brown are gearing up for more new music together. According to Rap-Up, the two were spotted leaving the same studio in West Hollywood last week and are said to be recording a new song together.
Currently, Chris is working on a brand new studio album, "Carpe Diem" which shold be out sometime this year so the song could end up on his project...but with the way Rihanna releases album, she could just as easlily be working on a rerelease or somehting...who knows.
But it is for sure that the two are cooking up new music together. So if "Birthday Cake", "Turn Up The Music" and "Nobody's Business" wasn't enough, then get ready for more.
Jennifer Hudson was another one of the stars that was tapped to perform for the President. She singer belted out her version of Al Green's classic "Lets Stay Together" for President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Despite what other blogs say, I think she did well. It was a typical Jennifer Hudson performance. Nothing loud or obnoxious about it. Check it out below and you be the judge.
Today was a day to go down in the history books. We saw President Barack Obama get sworn into office for the second time as he was re-elected for another four years. It marks the first time that an African American man has served a two-year term as president.

As I stated before, Mike Will I Made It is doing being things in 2013. I wouldn't be surprised if Beyoncé hopped on one of his tracks because all the females are doing it. The latest being Kelly Rowland who just released her brand new single on her official website.
The track is called "Kisses Down Low" and yes, it's another sensual pleaser...only it has a heavy urban production behind it. It's the newest single from her upcoming album "Year of the Woman" which is due out sometime this year. Check out the song after the break.
Rapper Fabolous is ready to make his return to the rap game. He's so ready that he's enlisted Chris Brown for the first single from his upcoming album "Loso's Way II" which is due out later in the year. The track is called "Ready".

Earlier this evening, the world saw Tamar Braxton premiere her highly anticipated video for her hit single "Love & War". The track was released about a month ago and made it's way to the top of the iTunes music chart.

It looks like Kim Kardashian has set the record straight regarding the relationship between her and Beyoncé. Since Kanye West and Kim began dating, rumers began swirrling that Bey couldn't stand being around her, hated the fact that she was so public with her life and all..
But Kim has stated that it's simply not true. She said the people love a good catfight and that Beyoncé couldn't be more sweet. She said that the topic never comes up when they're together...So there you have it. Watch the interview below.
Lmao! I CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH!
Today marks the what would have been 34th birthday of the late, great Aaliyah. We lost the singer over a decade ago in a horrific plane crash that killed her and eight others. Her music, style and legacy still goes on and on and on. With every new artist that hits the scene, we see bits and pieces of her in each of them. This year is set to be an interesting one for her. She may not be here but new music is definitely on the way.
Last year, her return came sooner than expected with the help of Drake and Noah who are executive producing the brand new posthumous Aaliyah album. The lead single "Enough Said" generated buzz, public interest and it reintroduced her to older fans, it also gained her new ones. People who have never heard of her, learned about her story just last year and became big fans.
It's just so interesting to see how she's still impacting the lives of music listeners even in death. When they see her videos or hear her music, they immediately go do research and find out her story. She will clearly never be forgotten as her music made a lasting impression on people across the world. It will go one for more decades to come. Happy Birthday Babygirl.
Who in the blue hell told Kenya Moore from Love & Basketball, The Real Housewives, Bad Girls Club, Love & Hip-Hop, The Family Hustle, or whatever reality show she's on, to put out a damn song? "Gone With The Wind Fabulous"? If she can record that then I should be able to cut a damn record.
This rusty trick also had the NERVE to perform this whack track on BRAVO. Of course it would be on the station that her show airs on because no network in that right mind would book such awful talent. The damn hosts were more entertaining than she was. Those back up dancers was just doing way too much.
Nicki Minaj is still hot and heavy with her promotional trail for American Idol, which premieres tomorrow. Last night she did The Tonight's Show with Jay Leno and earlier today she stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres show and had a grand ol' time. More light was shed on the whole Mariah Carey blow up.
Nicki stated that she can't hold grudges against her and that she always loved her. She also chatted about working the extensive hours on the talent show an admitting that she didn't know what she got herself into.
Ellen also tried to get the inside scoop on Nicki's boo thang, but of course, she remained very tight lipped about who it is and just cheesed the entire time. Later, she took to the stage to perform her hit "Freedom". Check it below.
Ester Dean is working very hard on her debut album which is currently titled "Story Never Told". The singer / songwriter who was penned hits for Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Katy Perry and others has been embarking on a solo venture and in my opinion is doing oh so well with it.
Before she drops the album, she will put out a mixtape this Winter. The first single from the upcoming album is called "How You Love It" and it is said to feature Missy Elloitt. But until then, Ester holds us over with a fresh video from her club banger "Bam Bam". It's very "MISSY"-fied.
R.L. from the former R&B group Next is still keeping his fans up to speed with releasing new tracks. Last year he dropped "Ain't You", which was one of my favorite songs of the year. Then, he was supposed to be working on a new mixtape.
Aside from his mixtape, he's been penning tracks for Lloyd, Mindless Behavior and others, but I think it's safe to say that he's still working on a project of his own. A new album is due out this year and it's titled "5:15". A new track hit the inter-web.The song is called "Boo'd Up". Listen to it after the break!
American Idol will be hitting your screen in just a short day and Nicki Minaj is still doing her promotional rounds for the show. Last night, she stopped by the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and give a comical interview.

A$AP Rocky’s debut studio album "Long. Live. A$AP" is in stores tomorrow (January 15th). And despite the extensive leak of the album more than three weeks ago, he continues to officially release records in hopes to luring in his dedicated fan-base and outsiders to purchase the album. “Wild For The Night” is one of our favorite records, and pure standout cut from the actual album.
Featuring production from Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam, the record maintains it’s overall high energy feel throughout the entire 3 and a half minutes of it’s journey. If you ask us, it’s a smart single choice considering the rise of EDM in the US – but support Rocky and cop his album tomorrow. Listen below via This Goes In.
The Smith clan is still doing their music thing....together. For those of you that don't know, Jaden Smith is a rapper and Willow is a singer. The brother and sister teamed up for a track called "Kite".
The track was produced by Téo and has a very spacey production as Jaden comes to terms with his emotional side. Give it a listen below.
Rihanna has made it clear that she's a force to be messed with throughout the years. She's made it clear time after time that she simply doesn't give a flying fuck what anyone think about what she does or says. To celebrate that, she was commemorated By Complex magazine who gave the singer seven covers for thier Feb./Mar. issue of the magazine.
The reason being was to celebrate the release of seven albums in seven years. Clearly they're celebrating her quantity and not quality.

It looks like Mike Will Made It is one of the go to producers. His signature sound is even making the females in music want productions from him. First Brandy, Kelly Rowland, Rihanna and now Ciara has jumped on one of his beats. The track is called "Wake Up, Turn Up".
The song is NOT an offering from her upcoming album "One Woman Army" which is due out later this year, but will be included on a mixtape that rapper Future is working on.

Britney Spears has threw in the towel as a judge on the singing competition show. Earlier today, the singer announced her departure from X-Factor, indicating that she won't return for another season. She state that she want to put her focus on her new album and that seeing the people on stage week after week made her miss what she loves doing the most.
There hasn't been any reaction from the other judges not have there been any reports on Demi Lovato returning or leaving. But time will tell.
