RAPUP CIARA NEW ALBUM EXCLUSIVE



Ciara has been laying low as of late, but for good reason. The R&B singer is well into recording her fourth album and we’ve got the exclusive details.


Christopher “Tricky” Stewart and his songwriting partner The-Dream have been secretly spending the summer in the studio producing the entire follow-up to Ciara’s Fantasy Ride. Stewart broke the news to Rap-Up.com in an exclusive interview. “We’re doing the whole project,” he reveals. “We’re pretty good into it at this point. We’re about 14 songs deep right now.”

The 23-year-old ATLien relocated to the West Coast to work on the album with Tricky and Dream, who crafted “High Price” and “Like a Surgeon” off this year’s Fantasy Ride. “She came out to L.A. to work with us. We’re out here making this record ’cause it feels good and the vibe is good,” says the Grammy-winning producer.

The as-yet-untitled effort will feature danceable tracks that have become Ciara’s signature. “This record obviously is gonna have tempo to it, but I think it’s gonna have even more substance than the last record,” Tricky discloses. “She dances and we always want to bring out what she does that other people don’t.”

Although Fantasy Ride boasted collaborations with a who’s who of the industry including Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, and Ludacris, the “Love Sex Magic” singer will be riding solo this time. “This album we wanted to take a few steps back and make it more about her, so the only feature is Dream. But the features that we do on this record will be remixes.”

The hitmaker even shared a couple song titles with Rap-Up.com. “I love ‘Speechless.’ I love this record called ‘Gifted.’ Those are two of my favorites. ‘Speechless’ is the record with her and Dream together.”

While there’s still the possibility of a release by the end of the year, it’s looking like 2010 will mark Super C’s return. “It’s a little up in the air, but there’s a chance that it might come this year. That was the goal, but at the same time, we didn’t want to rush anything. I think it’s looking more like a next year thing.”

Ciara is pulling out all the stops to make this her best work yet. “Right now, she’s on her grind, coming back, trying to make a better album than she made last time and get back to that mark where everybody knew that she was in the top tier of the female business.”

KLOE KARDAHIAN WEDDING DETAILS




In what proved to be an elegant finale to their month-long courtship, Khloe Kardashian wed Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom Sunday evening at a private residence in Beverly Hills, PEOPLE confirms.

At 5:12 p.m., Kardashian, 25, walked down the outdoor aisle in a Vera Wang gown on the arm of her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, with sisters Kim and a pregnant Kourtney at her side.

Black-Tie

Khloe's bridal party included half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, actresses (and twin sisters) Khadijah and Malika Haqq and actress Lauren London.

Cameras rolled for a future episode of E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians as 250 guests – including the show's producer Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Osbourne, Odom's Laker teammate Kobe Bryant, with his wife Vanessa, and TV personalities Chelsea Handler, Lara Spencer, Brittny Gastineau and Lala Vazquez – looked on.

Guests began arriving at the black-tie affair (at which BlackBerrys were banned) more than an hour in advance for a pre-wedding reception. A ten-piece orchestra played during the ceremony, held on the grounds of the home of music mogul Irving Azoff, a family friend. The flowers for the ceremony were all-white.

Nightclub Theme

Wedding planner Sharon Sacks created the Hollywood nightclub-themed reception that followed in a tent on the property, fitted with dark wooden walls, white carpeting, silver mirrors and chandeliers. Guests dined at glass and wood tables decorated with lavish centerpieces of white and lavender flowers. A DJ was booked to keep the party going until 11:00 p.m.

Elegant white and silver invitations went out to guests just days before the ceremony, hosted by Khloe's mom Kris Jenner and her stepdad. Also among those who attended were Luke Walton, Phil Jackson, Mitch Kupchak and Sasha Vujacic.

Lavish Menu

The four-course dinner began with chilled heirloom tomato soup with burrata (mozzarella and cream), a salad of melons with fresh figs and feta, followed by a choice of filet mignon or wild salmon fillet and a dessert trio. The wedding cake was by Hansen's Cakes.

Earlier in the week, Khloe prepared for the whirlwind wedding, choosing items for her wedding registry and celebrating with a bachelorette party, all while being followed by the E! cameras.

Asked if would consider producing a show with Khloe and Lamar, Ryan Seacrest replied, "I'm seriously thinking about it."

MAMA, CIARA WANTS TO SING


Finally, after some delays and re-shoots, 'Mama, I Want To Sing!' will make its world premiere as the closing night selection at the 13th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival.

Codeblack Entertainment has provided Black Voices with the first look of the trailer.

Presented by BET Networks, the highly-anticipated musical starring R&B superstar Ciara and Emmy Award winner Lynn Whitfield will screen on Sept. 26 in the heart at the AMC Loews 34th Street in New York City.

Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright with Jeff Clanagan, Marvet Britto, Holly Davis Carter, and David Pomier serving as producers of the film, the cast also includes Patti LaBelle, Prophetess Juanita Bynum (in her film debut), Hill Harper, Ben Vereen, Billy Zane, Marvin Winans, Kevin Phillips, Kim Porter, Ross Francis, Shonda Farr, and Mariah Roberson.

This film is based on the hit off-Broadway stage play by Vy Higginsen. It was loosely based on the career of her late sister, R&B vocalist Doris Troy, whose big hit was 1963's 'Just One Look.' The musical ran for eight years at Harlem's Heckscher Theater, making it the longest-running off-Broadway black theater musical in history.

In speaking to Black Voices, Randolph-Wright stated: "I am thrilled that the first screening of 'Mama, I Want To Sing!' will be at the Urbanworld Film Festival. The financial crisis placed the world on hold, especially independent films, but despite setbacks, we kept working on the film. What the audience will see is not yet the finished product, but it was extremely important to all of us to be involved in Urbanworld, because Urbanworld is OUR world!"

Urbanworld Film Festival runs from Sept. 23 through Sept. 27.

JAY Z FINALLY MEETS OPRAHS STANDARDS (PREVIEW)

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Pink




“The best I can gather is that Australia likes their artists to be rugged and raw and authentic, and America likes their artists to be glamorous and a little more packaged and glossy—like the difference between me and BeyoncĂ©,” the “Sober” singer tells Rolling Stone in the magazine’s September 17 issue

I like the song, don't care for the chorus melody but overall i like it. The video was hot. She looks great. And the body, wow.

SERENA SPEAKS



I love that clip when big sis steps in and defends Serena. She was clearly not at fault. Either way, what timing that now she is promoting a book. Might I add she looks gorgeous here.

BEYONCE GETS SUED AGAIN


Every year she's sued for stealing lyrics...Last month we announced Beyonce was sued for failure to pay for designs for her “I Am… Sasha Fierce”. “Project Runway” designer Chris, March, filed suit claiming he hadn’t been paid for his work as the tour’s “head of costumes”.

This month, in a lawsuit filed against the singer Tuesday, Abercrombie & Fitch Co has sought to preempt any fragrance launched under the name of Knowles’ alter ego, Sasha Fierce.

In its complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Columbus, Ohio, Abercrombie said it began selling its own Fierce scent in 2002 and trademarked the fragrance in 2003.

According to court documents, Knowles filed a letter-of-intent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in September 2008 for the Sasha Fierce mark in the fragrance category.

Abercrombie said its attorneys sent a cease-and-desist letter to Knowles after it became aware of her intent, but that the singer has continued to pursue the trademark.

Knowles’ attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.

The singer told WWD Tuesday she would launch a fragrance with Coty Inc. early next year. The company said the product did not yet have a name.

TAYLOR SWIFT ON THE VIEW


Moments later Kanye reportedly called the view to apologize to Taylor.

Admist rumors that this whole thing was a stunt etc, check out what HipHop rumors had to say:

Let's dissect the VMA:

1. Kanye did this at the beginning of the show during the first award nomination. MTV planned this to keep us glued to their network.

2. Right after the incident Rhapsody aired a commercial stating,"we listen to jay z, we listen to Pink but right now is Taylor's moment."

3. There are 3 winners at the VMA...Beyonce, T.Swift and Kanye.

Kanye is gaining so much publicity(bad publicity is good publicity) from this stunt. His fans doesn't care if he dissed a country singer, they will still buy his next album.

4. Beyonce saves the day and dedicates her award to the young singer. You think B really cares about a VMA at this point in her career...NO.

5.Taylors album sales will get a significant boost because people feel sorry for her.

6.If MTV really was embarrassed by the stunt, they would not have re-aired it on the rerun episode of the awards or posted it on their website.

I feel that this information is necessary because we can't allow the media to blind us and think we are stupid. And the sad thing is they are using our talented Hip Hop artists to do the dirty work. Corporations such as Viacom(own MTV, BET,VH1,Comedy Central-Dave Chapelle show) are exploiting our people and our music. Its sad that Kanye cosigned to do this spoof and he should apologize to Hip Hop not just Taylor. All MTV cares about is "Advertisment Dollars."

CIARA DOING IT AND DOING IT WELL





Before the VMAs Ciara opted to perform at the Audi Hearst Castle Challege Charity upon an invite for charity host Maria Shriver.




She soon after flew back to NY for Fashion Week where she spent her time last week. Looks like KK caught up to her. She was twitting Ciara all of last week about meeting up in NY.


GABBY KIM CIARA KELLY.....FABULOSITY at Tracy Reese Show








Did I show yall Ci and Amber last week. Smoking. She makes amber look like an old albino dude.


THE VMAs...A NIGHT TO REMEMBER

THE LOOKS OF THE NIGHT







MOMENTS TO TALK ABOUT

It's one thing to have an opinion and another to be an ass. We all question award show winners every year and I'm sure celebs do as well. But to go up on stage take the mic and do that truly demonstrates the kind of person you are. And bad things happen to bad people is all Imma say.

Beyonce made sure to get out of dodge and not take the Kanye rant heat by giving up her time to Taylor. Or as I would put it, accepting MTV's demand that she give up her time to Taylor. lol. I got teary though. That was a classy move. And she appears to be beautiful inside and out. Good things happen to good people. Once the moment passed, I was left thinking what kind of underwear those Bey have on? Her behind look like a volleyball...no homo

What was Jlo saying to Eminem when she gave him his award. She was yelling something.It looked like she was saying M'Fer you better not say anything about me while up on that stage.

HOT PERFORMANCES

The MJ Tribute. Brilliant sans the one dancer messing up the smooth criminal lean. Janet did her thing. Look at Beyonce and Jlo cheering like lil school girls, I love it. People question the lipsinging, trust me your favorite does it too. Just because she doesn't hold a mic in her hand shouldn't take anything away. I didn't like Janet's outfit. She looked like she had no neck. Other than that she gave energy and it was hot.

Say what you want this bish SLAYED. She gave you phantom..theater..choreo (shout out to Laurean).."performance art." People talk about being so disturbed by the blood yet they watch vampire movies and are fine. Give me a break. The bish gives me Madonna, Grace Jones, Prince, Janet all in one and adds herself. Plus she doesn't give the same performance...she always gives you a different look. And her performance told the story obviously the blood wasn't just for no reason. It was about a girl wanting fame and killing herself because of it. DUH. People need to learn how performance can be art and not just a visual of a person singing and/or dancing. Pure BRILLIANCE.

Beyonce turned it up by doing what she does best and adding more dancers to the party. Kat popping, hair slinging, floor scrubbing, and the single ladies routine in excess. How can you not be entertained. Respect the hustle pimpin.

Pink did her thing last night. Absolutely love this song and what a unique way to present it. By the way this is live singing on the freaking trampeze. Another use of the performance as a metaphor. AND WHAT. She is very underrated in my opinion. From Rnb to Pop to Rock to Dance she does it all effortlessly.

Surprisingly, my fav performance of the night. Jay Z turned up the swag and Akeys just melted my soul. It was so moving. It gave me a since of pride. I can't say enough about how this epitomizes the brilliance of a fitting callabo and the song is just perfect. You can tell Jay loved it as well because he seldom gives this kind of energy in a award show performance...see him dance with Akeys...see Beyonce reppin her man...see that NY swag by the duo..see that build up in the last verse...see Gaga groving in her bird nest...loves it. We are so ready for Akeys and a new album. The girl is so gutta....Enters Lil Mama = WTF, EPIC FAIL.

TYRA TO THE BANK


This former supermodel turned television mogul with 2 top rated shows on TV and a production company cannot be stopped. She sat with Jane Poley to discuss her business ventures, controversies and love life while giving insight into the fierceness that is Tyra Banks.

JENNIFER LOPEZ vs. ROSIE PEREZ



Sources are saying there is a battle brewing between Jennifer Lopez and the Rosie Perez over who will own the film rights of Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina appointed to the US Supreme Court.

It has been reported that Lopez hosted a dinner party for Justice Sotomayor right after her confirmation in an apparent attempt to butter her up and discuss a film about her life. Rosie resents Jennifer going after the project because she says she would have wanted to make the movie whether Sotomayor was confirmed or not,” the source adds.

This is not the first time Rosie has spoken out about Lopez in some form. In an interview with Out Magazine Rosie reportedly implied she was responsible for Lopez's success despite her limited talent. 'Jennifer Lopez was just Jenny from the block -- fat and clumsy Jenny from the block, when she got her start,' says squeaky-voiced Rosie Perez. Rosie said it was she, not Keenan Ivory Wayans, who hired Lopez as a dancer on the hit '90s comedy show "In Living Color ." "He didn't want her because she was overweight and didn't dance well, but I said, 'she has star quality.'"

Now the student is more successful than the supposed teacher, and steals her deals. This is enough to make anyone a little salty. You are likely to lose this one too Rosie. Sorry.

CASTER SEMENYA IS ALL WOMAN ON THE COVER OF YOLI MAGAZINE


The 18-year-old runner, who faced accusations of being a man after winning gold at the world championships in Berlin last month, has been given a glossy makeover.'I am who I am and I am proud of myself. I see it all as a joke, it doesn't upset me. God made me the way I am and I accept myself...'

The controversy over her gender, which has angered many in South Africa, emerged after she took gold in the women's 800 metres.

She is awaiting results of gender tests but said she was not bothered about the row overshadowing her win. And there are some compensations. Oprah Winfrey has invited her to star on her chat show.
