July 29, 2009 Leave a comment

Whitney Houston

It’s been reported that Whitney Houston’s highly anticipated new album I Look To You has been pushed forward.

The album was originally set to be released on September 1st, but will now drop on August 31st because of “continuous excitement”.

I’m so used to hearing about albums being pushed back, so this is a pleasant change.

Best of luck Whitney!

UK NEWS: JADE GOODY’S MOTHER SAYS ‘I’LL HAVE A BABY GIRL FOR JADE’

July 29, 2009 Leave a comment

Via The Metro

Jade Goody’s mother plans to fall pregnant so she can have the girl her daughter always longed for.

Jackiey Budden, 51, said she was confident she could conceive naturally and didn’t ‘even need to think about IVF’.

She added: ‘Jade would be over the moon for me if I got pregnant and I think it would be a wonderful tribute to her.’

Budden is expected to recruit the services of new boyfriend Jason Cooper, 36, who is considering having his vasectomy reversed. Continue Reading….

“Jackiey who is 51 years old is confident she will conceive naturally”

I swear, this woman is in need of an intervention. She cannot be serious!!!! 

Jackiey just talks rubbish for the sake of it and publications like Closer Magazine lap up the foolishness and fork out thousands of pounds for another warped ‘Budden exclusive’.

Madness! 

And as for her new boyfriend ( former soldier 36 year old Jason Cooper), he appeared with Jackiey on the HILARIOUS Jeremy Kyle Show last month, and I just sat there thinking, what is he up to?. He must be under the impression that Jackiey has millions of pounds stashed away in her bank account and is hoping to cash in at some point.

Cooper just didn’t seem genuine.

Rest In Peace Jade Goody.

XO Man celebrates his Hugo Urban Rules win with The Sugababes

Check out South London born rapper XO Man’s single/official video Microwave.

XO Man burst on to the UK scene after winning the Hugo Urban Rules talent contest in December 2008.

I only recently found out that XO Man won Hugo Urban Rules, which I guess shows a complete lack of interest on my part when it comes to contests of this nature….

Quirky, different and a mix of genres here!  This track will eventually become a commercial hit.

Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK NEWS: MODEL’S MURDERER JAILED FOR LIFE

Murderer: Ricardo Morrison

Via BBC News

A man jailed for life for murdering his model girlfriend is “dangerous beyond words”, a judge has said.

Ricardo Morrison, 22, from Birmingham, must serve a minimum of 24 years for killing Amy Leigh Barnes, 19, in Farnworth, near Bolton, last November.

Manchester Crown Court heard Miss Barnes was stabbed nine times and found bleeding to death by her father.

Sentencing Morrison, Mr Justice MacDuff said he was an “evil man” with a history of abusing women.

“You had controlled and abused Amy Leigh Barnes over many months,” added the judge, ordering him to serve at least 24 years before being eligible for parole.

“Yours was a sustained campaign of prolonged physical, emotional and psychological abuse.”

“Those of us who listened to her last anguished shouts in that 999 emergency call recording will never be able to forget it. You were unable to listen to it yourself.

“You slashed open her pretty face. What went through her mind when she saw you coming in through that back door with that knife is unimaginable.”

Mr Justice MacDuff said Morrison did not face an easy task in ever convincing a parole board he should be released in the future.

Morrison’s mother, Pc Melda Wilks, 50, who let him wash his bloodstained clothes at her home, was found not guilty of assisting an offender.

But she now faces an internal disciplinary inquiry by her force, West Midlands Police.

Rest In Peace Amy Leigh Barnes.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: KANYE WEST

Kanye West

Kanye West

“You know everyone loves and respects Michael but times change. It’s so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I’m willing to take that on. There’s nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael’s crown and become the new King. First there was Elvis, then there was Michael, now in the 21st century its Kanye’s time to rule. I have nothing but respect for Michael but someone needs to pick up where he left off and there’s nobody better than me to do that. I am the new King of Pop.”

[Kanye West thinks he has the potential to become the 'new Michael Jackson' (RIP) ]

Oh Kanye just put a sock in it you sad egomaniac!

July 27, 2009 7 comments

‘Run This Town’ is taken from Jay-Z’s highly anticipated album, ‘Blue Print 3′

People have been going crazy, wetting themselves over this track, like its the best thing since sliced bread!

But as far as I am concerned it’s just OK!!!!!

Others have also said that Kanye kills Jay on his own track.

Kanye’s verse is just OK!!!! It’s nothing to write home about!

Check out singer/song writer Cherri V, who I hope will go on to do big things here in the UK.

Cherri’s single Til The Sun Comes Up is a brilliant track that successfully meshes the genres of Rock, Pop and R&B.

I also love the spin she’s put on the Nirvana classic Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Mad News verdict: A HIT!

Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

Til The Sun Comes Up now available on ITunes.
