SAVE RISE FESTIVAL PETITION

Rise Festival was a London event set up by the Trades Union Congress in 1996 as a music event to promote anti-racism. The original event took part in Finsbury Park, north London, featuring artists Chumbawumba, Fun-Da-Mental, Asian Dub Foundation and Incognito and was held again the following year in East London’s Victoria Park in Hackney. After a three year hiatus the event was revived when Ken Livingstone was elected Mayor of London in 2000 and held annually around London featuring acts such […]

DIVERSITY WIN BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT BUT RUNNER UP SUSAN BOYLE RACKS UP THE COLUMN INCHES

Andrew over at The Worst Kept Secret pointed out today that even though street dance troupe Diversity took home ‘The Britain’s Got Talent’ crown last night, it’s runner up Susan Boyle’s face that can be seen splashed across the front pages of all the newspapers today. Susan comes across as being a lovely woman but she didn’t win the competition. Diversity did. The media coverage should therefore be focused on them NOT the runner up! But this is just typical of the […]

UK MUSIC: MZ BRATT – ‘WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?’

This is the official video for Mz Bratt’s debut single ‘Who Do You Think You Are’. The video has a number of featured cameo’s, but as most of you already know, I don’t really pay that much attention to what goes on within the world of UK ‘urban’ entertainment, so I only recognise one or two faces… and Mz Bratt. (lol) I actually like this track. I think it’s really catchy, and something that I would play in the summer while sitting […]

BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT(SEMI-FINAL) – HOLLIE STEEL

Britain’s Got Talent semi-final contestant Hollie Steel (10) took to the stage last night and this is what happened…. After Hollie broke down in to tears (notice her eyes are try like sand paper) and put the producers and the judges in a position where they had no choice but to give her a second chance (or risk being seen as monsters), we the viewers at home were then subjected to a 15 MINUTE commercial break because Hollie needed time to compose herself. This was manipulation […]

CIARA JOINS FORCES WITH KFC

I know that Ciara’s latest album Fantasy Ride, has failed to set the charts on fire like her previous albums have, but are things really that bad CC??? Via Sandra Rose Ok so this is clearly a joke! A mean spirited joke! A mean spirited HILARIOUS joke! :D :D :D

PIC OF THE DAY: TEYANNA TAYLOR AND OMARION STRIKE A POSE ON VENICE BEACH

I keep coming across pictures of Teyanna Taylor on various blog sites. I haven’t listened to any of her music (I just looked at her and thought nah can’t be bothered to click on ‘play’), but last year she was being touted as the ‘next big thing’ . Anyway check out singers Teyanna and Omarion posing together during a photo shoot on Venice Beach, California. Via The Gossip Jacker

VIDEO: THE DREAM FT KANYE WEST – WALKING ON THE MOON

There is nothing special about this track at all and it doesn’t make me feel as if I am walking on the moon. I think that it would be in The Dream’s best interest if a friend took him to one side and told him the truth, which is… When you sing it sounds as if your testicals haven’t dropped yet. You cannot sing!   The Dream should continue to focus on producing and writing hit records for artists and accept that he is a behind […]

NIGERIA: MANCHESTER UNITED FAN KILLS RIVALS

What was running through this idiot’s mind???  He should have been the one to die. Via BBC News A Manchester United football fan in south-eastern Nigeria drove a minibus into a crowd of Barcelona supporters, killing four people, police say. Ten other people were wounded in the incident in Ogbo town, after United lost Wednesday’s European Champions League Final 2-0 to the Spanish team. A police spokeswoman told Reuters news agency: “The driver passed the crowd, then made a U-turn and ran […]

MADONNA AND GUY RITCHE PAINTING UP FOR SALE

When I first caught sight of this creepiness today I burst out laughing on the train. You can literally pass any old crap off as “art” these days. The oil painting which depicts Madonna in the nude with her former husband Guy Ritchie, is the work of “acclaimed”  Scottish artist Peter Howson. Worryingly,  Howson seems to spend most of his time producing portraits of Madonna in a state of undress. His latest work (above) is expected to fetch up to £22,000 when it goes on sale on Saturday. Howson clearly […]
