RAPPER MEMPHIS BLEEK DEFENDS HIS DECISION TO ENDORSE FRUCTIS FLOW SHAMPOO

Memphis Bleek recently spoke to HipHopGame.TV and defended his decision to appear in a commericial for Garnier’s Fructis Flow Shampoo. The rapper who is also Jay-Z’s protege/hype man stated, “Making yourself into a brand. That’s what that’s called, I don’t think niggas understand that”. “You get off the plane in Ireland and that product will be on the shelf. When you see that product here, you see that there. And you get a hell of a cheque. They gave me a hell of a cheque []

VIDEO: M.I.A PERFORMING AT THE DIESEL 30TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY

The UK’s M.I.A performed at the Diesel 30th Anniversary party that took place in Brooklyn this past weekend. T.I and N.E.R.D also performed. I really don’t know how M.I.A gets away with it, I really don’t! Her music is absolute shite yet for some reason the industry’s embraced her wholeheartedly and people (particularly Stateside) continue to lap up her unique brand of garbage.   The “singer/rapper” tied the knot very suddenly several months ago ( to the  son of Warner Music Group’s CEO, Edgar Bronfman, Jr), and []

VIDEO: BRITNEY SPEARS – ‘WOMANIZER’

I wouldn’t normally feature a video/track by Britney Spears on here, but seeing as she is now “officially” back, I thought I would post her much hyped come back single ‘Womanizer’. Was it worth the wait I hear you ask…. NO! ‘Womanizer’ is awful! Utter Pop crap!  As for the video…. smh……. well watch for yourselves….. I always admired the way she presented herself in video’s and on stage. Hair, make-up, clothing, choreography- everything was in place.  But now everything about her just seems slap dash []

VIDEO: BEYONCE – ‘IF I WERE A BOY’

This is Beyonce’s new single, ‘If I were a Boy’ taken from her forthcoming album which will drop on November 18th. I really like this track and love the video.  ‘If I Were A Boy’ also has a Country feel to it. Faith Hill would also sound good on this record.   Your thoughts please……

LONDON CLUBS CAN’T AFFORD JAY-Z DURING CREDIT CRUNCH

Via The London Paper Jay-Z is finding the credit crunch is hamperiing his London party plans. The hip-hop superstar has found no club willing to stump up his appearance fee. Representatives for the star, in town to watch his NBA team, the New Jersey Nets, take on Miami Heat at The O2 on Sunday night, initially asked for £25,000 for him to host a party. Even though that figure has now gone down to £7,500, no clubs are interested. A club source told theBuzz: []

RIHANNA MISTAKEN FOR PRINCE

Sources say that singer Rihanna was left “mortified” when a crowd of excited fans mistook her for being Prince, as she walked through a London airport several weeks ago. “Some fans screamed out ‘Prince’ when they saw her,” one witness whispers. “But when they got close enough to ask for an autograph, they realized he was she.” “She didn’t know what to say.” (Source: Star Magazine) HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I would of loved to have seen the look on her face.

BLACK MALE CELEBRITIES “EXPOSED”

Here we go again…a report delving in to the private lives of numerous black male celebrities, which more or less accuses them of being closet homosexuals, without any sufficient evidence. Until I see actual evidence of these male celebrities caught with their faces down and arses up/caught in a passionate embrace, I will continue to not take these rumours seriously.   However check out this entertaining video featuring blogger Xem VanAdams. (What was actor Duane Martin thinking when he agreed to wear that pink thong LOL!!!)

VIDEO: ALESHA DIXON – ‘THE BOY DOES NOTHING’

You all know my feelings when it comes to this track.  Now check out the video….. Like I said in a previous post, I have nothing against the woman but I’m sorry Alesha just needs to throw in the towel when it comes to making music! Her label clearly has money to burn even in these desperate times. I mean what was Asylum Records thinking when they signed her? ‘Oh she won ‘Celebrity Come Dancing’ so she’s bound to sell records now’. Err NEWSFLASH it []
