RIRI SPOTTED IN MEXICO


NEW VIDEO


Jaimie Foxx "Blame It". The song is hot, the video not so much. It starts off epic with big names like Ron Howard Sam Jackson and Jake Gellynhall etc but it goes nowhere. All he's doing is standing/dancing with a chick and singing. There was nothing to it. Hype Williams has been falling off as of late.

CICI VLOGS

Yet another celeb to add the the vlog phenom. This is all to begin promo for her album. Here song "Never Ever" has finally debuted on the hot 100 also debuted in Germany and Swedan. She is just too adorable and stunning. And her dad....Imma hold my speech on him. Okay maybe not...if he were 10-15 years younger, her mom would have a problem with me...... okay. The whole family is cute. Here mom is a total fly girl. And her assistants Jennifer and Erica seem cool. Check her out in the vlog 1 in Orlando after the superbowl; vlog 2 acting foolish in her car headed somewhere; vlog 3 at the basketball game; and vlog 4 headed to the Hello Kitty launch.

50 SHOWING COMPASSION...TAKING BACK FUNNY REFERENCE TO CHRIAHANNA DISTURBIA


"I thought that was something you could use for humor, like any other comedian would utilize current events to put into their actual [presentation], being humorous a little bit," 50 explained while promoting his new video game, "50 Cent: Blood on the Sand," which hit stores Today. "I put [reference to the incident] in a 'Pimpin' Curly' (+ Cartoon Here) skit a little bit. From the perspective of the character, I mentioned it."
50 says those comedic references were made prior to TMZ posting a photograph of a badly beaten Rihanna. He immediately changed his mind about making light of the situation.

"After I saw the photograph, that wasn't funny anymore," 50 said. "I didn't have any information on it. You're just going on what the public actually had. It shifts the whole thing. Even if you're saying you're in a dysfunctional relationship, I understand that. There's a point when you're already past a woman fighting you back. You look at [the picture], and it's obviously past that point. There's some issues there that definitely gotta be addressed. Not to take any shots at Chris or Rihanna or take sides in any way, [but] it's really not cool. It's not funny anymore, so there will definitely be no more reference to that from me in any way."

OMARION'S BACK



Taking my advice to seize the opportunity to cut Teeth Brown's throat. Omarion releases "Comfort."

CIARA INTERVIEW ON THE ED LOVER SHOW

Still in NYC Ci hit up the Ed Lover family radio show yesterday morning to chat with Ed and Free about her new album. (i just heard the 2nd song Timberfake produced for her....pure fire. I'm certain they will release that one too by May. Timberfake may be redeeming himself since the janet incident). Haters have to turn it up cause both of her singles are gaining momentum. Ci also hit up the Glamour Art show later last night before attending The Dream concert. See pics and audio below. And crazy tour info to come soon.

WAYNE'S ROCK ALBUM PUSHED BACK TO MAY 19TH


When you’re a bonafide star, you pretty much get your way. Unless of course your way could possibly get in the way of the cash flow that is.

Recently it was announced that Lil Wayne’s rock album, “Rebirth”, had been pushed back from April 7th to May 19th. He announced his plans to do an entire rock n roll album in addition to the release of the Carter V early this year, much to the surprise of his loyal fans who are used to hearing him stick to rapping.
Well now word is that this was not just a standard push back but a direct signal from Wayne’s record label, Universal, that they are not rocking with him on this project.

The Carter III was the top selling album of the year and pretty much Universal Music’s cash cow of last year. They want to do everything to keep Wayne in the top position he is in right now and avoid anything that could knock him from that spot.

Word is the top brass at Universal think that this rock album would be a failure and would make the rap world look at Wayne even more sideways than most of us already do. People reports top execs at Universal have tried to talk to Wayne several times and explain to him that this album is not a reality, but of course those convos are to no avail.

Word is that they let his manager, Cortez Bryant, know that if Wayne doesn’t brighten up they have to turn into Mr. Evil Record Company and just tell him it’s never going to be released.

CIARA PROMO FOR UPCOMING ALBUM WITH AN INTERNATIONAL RELEASE DATE OF MAY 19TH

Ci is about to start her promo grind which will go in full force in March. She stopped by BET's 106 yesterday to start it off. She wouldn't say the release date but this morning on Ed lover show she announced a final release date of May 19th so that is can be released internationally. And she promises that it will not change again. We'll see.

And will be on Snoop's After Dark Show on MTV tonight. They will be promoting 2 singles before the album is released.

See video of Ci on BET:


Love the look. She seems happy. She always dancing. Very articulate and intelligent. Still talks too fast but much better this time.


Here she talks about new single and video.

Here's a snippet of Ci on Snoops After Dark Show:

JOHN MAYER FANTASIZES ABOUT ANGELINA WHEN MANISTON IS GIVING HIM HEAD



[In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine way back in September 2006, John Mayer Talked about Blow Jobs and Angelina Jolie]

"Everyone thinks Brad Pitt has it great because he married Angelina Jolie," he said. "I think he has it terrible, because when Angelina Jolie is giving you a blow job, what do you tip your head back and think of to help you finish? You have nothing left – just Jesus on a polar bear in the middle of the snow, saying, 'You greedy mother-cker, I've got nothing for you.'"


TRANSLATION: Jennifer Anniston, you are just a loser and I'm using to see if Angie will steal me from you too.

THE OSCAR RECAP: Winners, Losers and In Between

One of the best oscars in a while. As a whole we were not that bored. Jackman did a great job and the presentations were creative and informative. Here's the recap starting with fashion:

BEST DRESSED

Taraji stunned in Cavali
Halle scored best dressed for me. Hands down gorgeous and flawless
Miley looked very glamarous
Natalie exemplifies simplicity in a stylish way

Tina Fey finally stepped her game up

WORST DRESSED
Tilda Swinton just has no hope when it comes to fashion
Alicia Keys looked a tranny mess. From hair to makeup to outfit
Beyonce and her failed clothing line = tackiness personafied. I wouldn't expect anything more
Whoopi wore a dress which is a plus. But why does she look so sloppy all the time? And leapord print?


I loved Amanda Seyfried in Mama Mia and check her out every week on Big Love but this is ridiculous

HOST....SUPERB


Brilliant opening. I especially enjoyed "The Reader" part.


Musical is Back f/ Beyonce Knowles and the Mamm Mia and High School Musical cast including Zac E and Vennessa H. This was okay. I liked some of the songs. I am now a fan of Hugh Jackman

THE WINNERS....
Slumdog took all the technical and musical categories, as well as best picture...which i don't think they deserved. Here are some acceptance speeches from other winners.


Kate got her win finally but Meryl deserved that Oscar....Best Actress

Penn got his 3rd but Mickey was robbed...Best Actor

Slumdog for best movie...I think not. However, I'm pissed MIA didn't perform and/or win.

BEST MOMENTS


They kept cutting to Ang and Brad when Maniston walked on stage. I hope Maniston realized Bradgelina was laughing at her not with her.



Ben Stiller does Joquinn Pheonix...hillarious

CIARA PROMO FOR 'LOVE SEX AND MAGIC"

I guess they will promote 2 singles at the same time because pop has picked up the song and cannot stop playing it. LSM to crossover and Never Ever to urban. Lets go:



On the set of the LSM video shoot, Ciara and JT's manager Johnny Wright gives a peak. Janet will not be happy about this. Yet another reason she will never like you Ciara.

FAB BUSTED FOR WEED?


Arkansas police revealed today (February 20) that they seized nearly 500 pounds of marijuana from a tour bus this week and the two Georgia men in the vehicle implicated Fabolous.

According to KHBS, police claim that they initially stopped the bus for driving on the shoulder of a highway on Tuesday night (February 17) and when they searched the bus they found 496 pounds of marijuana in a duffle bag.

Police also revealed that they found $6,452 in cash on the men.

The two men, who were identified as 52-year-old Edward Thimas and 44-year-old Robert Morris, told the police that they were returning from the NBA All-Star Weekend in Phoenix and they had been escorting Fabolous who was not on the bus during their arrest.

The men claimed that Fabolous and another rapper who was not identified loaded the marijuana on the bus and told them to contact them when they got to Boston.

It is unclear whether Fabolous has been questioned. Police said they are keeping the two men in custody because the stories they gave during interrogation were conflicting.

RIHANNA EMERGES LOOKIN UNSCATHED

NEW CIARA F/ JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE VIDEO



Word is Ciara and Timberfake are scheduled to film a video together this weekend. I'm assuming this will be her first single in Europe. More details to come...

**UPDATE**

per rapup.com

Ciara and Justin Timberlake will put their best feet forward when the two dance machines team up for Ciara’s new single, “Love and Sex and Magic.”

Rap-Up.com has exclusively learned that the Zomba labelmates will shoot a video for the song on Friday in New York with director Diane Martel, who helmed the clips for “Promise” and “Like a Boy.”

The Timberlake-produced track will appear on Ciara’s third album Fantasy Ride, scheduled for release this spring.


**UPDATE**

CLICK HERE FOR SONG

DAAAAAAAAMN. It looks like Jive has decided to spend all of Teeth Brown's advance on Ciara videos. Is the new strategy to release all the singles with videos but no other promo before putting out the album? They spittin videos/singles like the Octimom pushes babies.

3 weeks after releasing her first single "Never Ever" Jive puts out Ci f/ Timberfake "Love Sex & Magic" as the 2nd single. It was only a matter of time before the 2 falsetto singing/loving artists got together. The 2 share a manager. The demo was on youtube already.

The beat is similar to his sound on his last album, specifically "Sexy Ladies." It gives that 80's Time/Prince retro funk vibe. I guess pop will eat this up. Her current "Never Ever" is slowly climbing the urban charts and goes for ads to impact crossover on March 2nd. It's already impacted in Sweden and Germany even though that was not targeted. On March 2nd this new single with Justin goes to the European market. The video is being shot today and tomorrow. I guess that's what this single is for. Her negro base will not appreciate this.

After about 3 listens at high volume, I understand why they released it. Besides the fact that Timberfake is a international crossover magnet, the song has an eclectic sound. He wrote this and produced it for Ciara.

This experimental thing Ci is doing is out of control. I should applaud her audacity to truly give us sounds out of her comfort zone. We all know Ci could easily put out a crunk hip hop record and get the spins we expect from her. But she refuses to do what we expect from her. We'll see how long this defiance lasts.

MORE SINGLES FOR BEYONCE

Bey is shooting another video. Diva and Halo are not impacting crossover as well as Single Ladies so I guess they're keeping it moving instead of promoting it. Either way it's Bey.





TMZ POSTS RIRI'S BRUISED PIC



Today's her bday and TMZ does this.

Chris Brown you don't exist to me.I knew there was a reason I didn't like that lil bish. And you had the nerve to punch her in the forehead? SMH

__________

In the wake of a Grammy day altercation that left her in the hospital and him under arrest, Rihanna was embraced by a clearly sympathetic public. Sales of her 2007 album, Good Girl Gone Bad, surged 33 percent, selling another 25,000 copies at No. 31

LUDA APOLOGIZES TO MCCAIN


Ludacris, the self-proclaimed “mouth of the south,” made nice with former presidential hopeful John McCain over this past weekend, after making some disparaging remarks about the Republican Arizona senator on record last year.

The rapper/actor reportedly apologized to McCain and his wife Cindy during last Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game according to E! Online.

Luda made headlines last year when his track, “Politics (Obama is Here)” was publicly panned by President Barack Obama for using such lines as “McCain don’t belong in any chair unless he’s paralyzed.”

Theater of the Mind, the Atlanta MC’s last album recently went gold.

ARE THEY BACK TOGETHER?


First we hear that Rihanna did not accept Chris's apology. Now Entertainment magazines are consistent in reporting that Rihanna is not over Chris. If true, I've known some Pisces to be stupid but this takes the cake. Breezy is going to get away with this by making her think he wants her so she can't cooperate then dumping her when the storm clears. Here are the reports

National Enquirer:

”Even after what Chris did to her, Rihanna is crazy about him and she’s forgiven him … They’ve been talking on the phone, and they’ve agreed that once the legal problems are ironed out, they’ll be together.”

Star Magazine:

”[Rihanna] has reached out to [Chris] on numerous occasions, both calling and texting him with the message: Miss you, Love, peace and hope u r ok’ … She keeps saying she wants to make sure that he’s okay. She thinks this will all blow over and they can go back to how they were.”

Life & Style:

”[Rihanna] loves Chris but she wants to send the right message to fans by what she says publicly and how she handles the relationship … But she loves him – and may want to work things out.”

In Touch
They’re speaking and still in love, but not back together yet:

”She hates Chris but still loves him at the same time … [they] spoke a few times since the incident, and they’ve relayed messages back and forth through a friend.”

US Weekly:

Rihanna seems surprisingly torn, to the exasperation of many. “I mean damn, her eye’s black and the sides of her face are all f_cked up, “says a friend. “But she keeps saying she loves him … [and] she’s telling everyone that she’s sorry, though it’s not her fault … She’s actually worried about HIS life? What prison will do to him? Come On!”

DESPERATE FOR ATTENTION!!!!!


The Knowles are not happy that Rihanna is getting all the media attention. After trying to stage photos of Beyonce at Kelly Rowland's Bday party (days after Kelly announced she's leaving the Knowles management) to no avail, they had Solange show up to fashion week with a sheer black dress exposing her nipples (seen above). That only attracted some random blogs so now we get this:
Solange Knowles was admitted to hospital when she collapsed after downing flu pills on a flight out of New York on Tuesday night.

In a series of Twitter postings during the flight, she told fans how she had swallowed NyQuil tablets to treat a cold. She wrote: "I took a nyquil and i think maybe im getting high off it because im not sleeping. maybe i should close my eyes..."

Minutes later she added, "think im certified loosing (sic) it on nyquil. going to sleep before i start freestyling on the plane... omg (Oh my God) i didnt know nyquil could do this to you. i took the pills tho. cant stomach cough syrup. trying to be proactive on this flight."

She then added: "Never taking nyquil again. I feel so weird."
The singer left further apparently random messages about various musicians and having "freezing" feet, before a break of three hours.
She then logged on again and wrote: "Woaah...... How'd I end up in the hospital?

Woke up to 8 random people over me, laid out on the floor in baggage claim!... Guess I passed out! Scary. Hooked up to IV now . Apparantly I'm super dehydrated.
"I've never passed out before. S**t was like the movies. People standing over me saying 'hello'... My mom is the best. LOL (laugh out loud). She's like 'Ain't nothing wrong with this girl, she need some water and rest... Pull up the car!' LOL

"I'm like still in shock. I've never passed out before. Think it was the nyquil too. I felt weird when I woke up. This has been the day from hell. I'm done with the second IV. I just want to get in the bed and lay with (son) Julez. That's all I want.

The singer later confirmed she had been released following treatment, writing: "I'm out! yay!... they let me go..... Rest. Water. Rest. Water."


The desperation is toooo obvious
