But the hit records have dried up, interest has cooled to an icy chill, and now he’s resorted to releasing a low budget video on Twitter. I’m sure there’s a good explanation for this though…. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

JILL SCOTT TALKS INTERRACIAL RELATIONSHIPS

In the latest edition of  Essence singer Jill Scott addresses the subject matter of interracial marriage. My new friend is handsome, African-American, intelligent and seemingly wealthy. He is an athlete, loves his momma, and is happily married to a White woman. I admit when I saw his wedding ring, I privately hoped. But something in me just knew he didn’t marry a sister.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: RODNEY JERKINS COMPARES LADY GAGA TO MICHAEL JACKSON

VIDEO: USHER FT NICKI MINAJ – LIL FREAK

Is this what it’s come to Usher??? I remember when this man used to be a class act. Now he’s singing about threesomes/group sex and working with the likes of the ATROCIOUS Nicki Minaj. The world really is coming to an end. Usher is struggling right now and doesn’t seem to know which direction to take career wise. This explains the ill-advised collaborations, the quality of the new music and his image at present. That terrible collaboration with Will.IAM and now this just saddens me. He is dumbing []

I thought we had moved on from the old tired council estate back drops in videos? And who is that guy standing next to him/trailing behind him? Why is he there? What is his purpose? The video gets a thumbs down from []
