As much as I love me some Chris Brown, I can't help but feel sorry for him and his court room trips. The singer is in trouble with the law yet again. He's being sued for $3M over an alleged homophobic assault. Granted, it's the same case that he's already been to court for misdemeanor assault.
Now the accuser has made new allegations against Chris saying that he hurlled homophoic remarks at him, then procedded to punch him the face, breaking his nose as a result. See the story below.

Two years ago, the world lost the voice. Whitney Houston passed away on Saturday, February 11, 2012 in Beverly Hills, California. She was found unresponsive inside of her hotel room's bathroom. Her life and legacy inspired many and her profound voice touched the world in so many different ways.
Words can't describe how much she's missed by her fans loved ones but I'm sure her spirit lives on through each and every one of them. She was definitely one of my top favorite entertainers. I never EVER doubted her one bit, even during the bad times. I've always stood strong for her and I still do and I always will.
Below, we will take a listen to one of her final recordings. It's a reworked version of the titled track form her final album "I Look To You" and it's a duet with R. Kelly. The song was released as a promotional single from her posthumous compilation album "I Will Always Love You: The Best of Whitney Houston". The song was a perfect ending for the album and a nice wrap for the life and legacy of Whitney. Listen to it below.
I wanted to wait until the official track was released tomorrow, but I just had to see what the fuss was about. Yesterday, Mariah Carey announced that her new single, "You're Mine (Eternal)", would be released on 2/12/14 as well as the video. Her album will hit store in May. Just a few nights ago, she performed the new song at the BET Honors ceremony.
That performance will be televised on 2/24/14 on BET. However, audio from that night surfaced and that was how fans got to listen to the piano driven R&B ballad. It's said to bring people back to the "We Belong Together" days. Everything is happening just in time for Valentine's Day, hence the sweet looking artwork for the cover. Get into the live audio track below.
Letoya Luckett is still hard at work on her third studio album. It's been nearly five years since the release of "Lady Love" and we finally are treated to a new tune. The song premiered on VH1's television series "Single Ladies" which she stars in.

Yesterday, Nicki Minaj was spotted on the set of a mystery video shoot. The images you see above plagued the internet with the barbz and kenz wondering what the rapper has up her sleeve. In the shoot she revealed that she was wearing La Ruicci Body Suit by Luxe & Le’Bra, a Moschino jacket and Balmain boots.
Could this be a video for her upcoming single from the new album? Could it be her recording for a feature in another artist song? Or could it simply be a photo shoot for a magazine or something simple? We shall find out soon enough. But until then, get into the pics below.
All systems are go with Ashanti and her new album "Braveheart". It's been a long three years but the CEO of Written Entertainment is ready to launch the project. Earlier today, she revealed the tracklisting for the album which consists of a few Target exclusives.

Mariah Carey Has To Remind Us About What She's Done Eons Ago In Order To Announce Her New Single & Album
"Lets try this again......" That's what Mariah Carey is saying with this entire album process. The woman has released "Triumphant", "Almost Home", "#Beautiful", "The Art of Letting Go" and god knows what else in order to start the promotion for the album. But neither single took off deeming them buzz and promotional tracks.
So here we are now, with the announcement of her new single and album's release date. She did it all by dropping a two minute video clip telling us about all the awards and accolades she's obtained over decades of her being in the industry. All of that, plus photos and videos or her all laced on top of her "We Belong Together" track.
Then finally at the very end, we get to see the cover for the new single "You're Mine (Eternally)".

The single will be available on 2/12/14 and album is set to be released on 05/06/14. All dates are subject to change... Check out the video announcement below.
I'm sure that we are all very familiar with Scandal and Olivia Pope. For those of you who aren't Scandal is the name of a hit television series that see's a woman sleeping with the President of the United States. Now, lets flip back to reality and the purpose of this story.
Word on the street is that The Washington Post claimed to have hardcore evidence that President Obama and singer Beyonce is having a hot and steamy love affair. They have since denied such allegations. A french photographer who goes by the name of Pascal Rostain says he will publish the story and the evidence tomorrow online.
The latest rumor floating across the inter-web today is about Drake and Jhene Aiko. Word has it that the two are expecting a child together. She's reportedly two months pregnant and this would be her second child. She already a daughter from O'Ryan who is the younger brother of Omarion.
The news broke today as the two apparently have been on the road together for Drake's "Nothing Was The Same" tour. It's believed that they're romance sparked because of so much time spent together rehearsing, in the studio and on stage. They're said to have had a hot and steamy relationship while they were on the road and the result is that she's two months pregnant.
Welcome the return of "Best You've Never Heard". Again, it's a segment which embraces unheard songs that we love. They could be leaked songs, failed or scrapped singles or songs that just linger on an album and does not get any airplay. So today we're focusing on three lovely ladies. There is also commentary from my friend B who runs Can You Dress and Thirsty Blog.
Among the three, my picks are Jennifer Hudson & Fantasia. No, it's not the duet "I'm His Only Woman" from Jennifer's debut album. My song of choice is "Gone" which is lifted from her sophomore effort "I Remember Me". As for Fantasia, we will take a look at her failed first single from her album "Back to Me". The song is called "Even Angles"
My good friend B chose a song from the legendary Whitney Houston. It was from her final album "I Look To You" and the song choice was "Call You Tonight". That is also one of my favorite songs. It was produced by Stargate and penned by Jonta Austin. Lets dig in below shall we!
I know that I am about a good week and a half late with this post, but it's better late than never. Jennifer Lopez dropped a new music video for her song "Same Girl". There's no word if the song or the video will be apart of her new album that's due out later this year. She's been in the studio with Chris Brown, Future and a few other artists and producers.
In the video, she portrayed that she's still Jenny from the block. We get to see her walk down the streets of the Bronx waving and talking to fans, ride the subway train, dancing in the streets with her girls and a lot more. See if she got your approval below. Also, my good friend B from Can You Dress and Thirsty Blog will be sharing his thoughts about the clip as well. Check it all out below.
You know how they say that people get better and better with what they do as time goes on? I will say that's the case with Ashanti. Todahy she revealed yet another album cover for her upcoming album "BraveHeart". This marks the third one and I'd say that it's the second best one.
The also has a new release date of March 14th. That marks it's 192nd push back since it was announced back in 2011. The project seems to be pushing forward as the fan favorite song "I Got It" which features Rick Ross. The video should premiere within the next few weeks. Until then, peep the sneak peek below.
Mama to be Ciara debuted this song at the "official" Grammy after party a few weeks back. This pregnant mama was on stage singing her heart out and dedicated this song to her fans. The track features her baby's daddy Future and is said to be featured on her upcoming album.
She confirmed that a new one was in the works and will see the light of day this year. It is believed to be the lead single from the project. The song is called "Anytime" and way produced by Boi-1da and Katalyst. Give the song a listen below.
It's tax season and the IRS is out to play. We've seen our share of celebrities get slapped with tax liens by the IRS for not paying or reporting taxes from the income that was generated of the years. Keyshia Cole now joins that list.
After a year of down playing a few of the girls from Destiny's Child, it seems that her nose should have been else where. The singer was smacked with a tax lien of $162K for not paying taxes in 2009. It looks like she needs to get back into BET's good graces or drop an album to fix this. Peep the report below.
Shakira's new album will be released next month and she's enlisted the help of Rihanna for it's lead single. "Can't Remember To Forget You" serves are the first release from the self titled project and it's video premiered a few days ago. We saw a sexy side from both woman and I will say that it was hot.
Joseph Khan directed the clip and the girls had to spice it up because the song itself isn't all that. I feel that the video could have been even sexier and more raunchier. They could have did more groping and touching or even planted a few kisses on one another...Rihanna kind of did but not really.
Lastly, I am going to introduce my good friend B who is from the website Thirsty Blog. He will give commentary and thoughts about a few topics that are posted right here on Dimp-Zone. Within the next few weeks we will do videos so this is just the start. Peep it all below.
