[Thanks Mikey] Jay-Z is featured in the May 2010 issue of Esquire Magazine UK – “Jay-Z  Why He’s  The CEO Of Cool”, and TV/radio personality Jonathan Ross has written an article about the rapper. The British mainstream media’s obsession with Jay is just nauseating! You have BBC Radio personality Jo Whiley who I always associate with the Indie Rock scene,  fawning, cooing and wetting herself over Jay and now Jonathan’s his biggest fan. To some Jay-Z is now the acceptable face of []

[Thanks Brown Eyez] TV presenter and model Donatella Panayiotou has announced her resignation from Grime Daily. This comes after the shooting incident that took place last weekend during the Grime Daily 1st anniversary party in North London, and the sensationalized news coverage which later went on to cite Donatella as being the main target.

I have come across articles featuring Janelle and seen her videos posted on numerous websites, but I’ve never bothered to read those articles or bothered to click on play.

I am now kicking myself for not checking the singer out from the start. Janelle you now have a new fan! In this video she []

Make My Heart is Toni Braxton’s new single and to be honest I’m a little disappointed. I mean it’s actually quite catchy and I can see it going down relatively well in the clubs, but Toni could have released a stronger comeback single and video. This woman used to be a superstar.
