NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE WRITER’S PROFILE ON ‘SINGER’ M.I.A CAUSES UPSET

This article has given me my first big laugh of the day. New York Times Magazine contributor Lynn Hirschberg has written an article about British “artist” M.I.A (real name Maya Arulpragasam), which has hilariously forced the grossly over-rated star to retaliate via her Twitter account, by childishly posting Hirschberg’s mobile number to her adoring followers. I doubt Hirschberg gives a toss Maya. Click here to read extracts from the article, and if you have time to spare the article in it’s entirety HERE. Maya you seriously need to get over herself luv. You really []

VIDEO: INTRODUCING….. THE NEW BAD BOY FAMILY

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs recently unveiled the “new Bad Boy family” and the only artist on today’s Bad Boy roster that’s worth a bean is the talented/beautiful Janelle  Monae. It’s all so fake….. Can somebody please tell me why Cassie is still signed?  Actually ignore that question… I know why.

FORMER DESTINY’S CHILD GROUP MEMBER ADDRESSES ‘REUNION’ RUMOURS

Former Destiny’s Child group member Farrah Franklin (remember her?), who along with Michelle Williams replaced Letoya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson back in 2000, has revealed to Vibe that she would be open to reuniting with her former group members. Apparently there has been talk of a Destiny’s Child reunion which I missed. Anyway Farrah  said, “Right now, I’m kind of hearing about it with everyone else. It hasn’t been presented to me yet. When it does or if it does, I’ll deal []

BAD BOY RECORDS PRODUCER INVITES UP AND COMING MUSIC TALENT TO SUBMIT NEW MATERIAL…. BUT IT WILL COST YOU!

A songwriting friend of mine informed me the other day that she came across Bad Boy Entertainment producer Amadeus’ (real name Antwan Thompson) website, where he encourages up and coming song writers, male/female artists and producers to submit their material to him. But there is a catch! That catch being SUBMISSION FEES. Amadeus who “is a multi-platinum Bad Boy Hitmen record producer, music director musician and is the CEO of Platinum Boy Music Inc”, claims that once material (and payment) is submitted []

UK NEWS: N-DUBZ SIGN TO DEF JAM RECORDS

Well according to reports it’s finally happened.. it’s official…. UK group N-Dubz have signed to Def Jam Records. Def Jam’s Vice-President of A&R Max Gousse said, “I signed N-Dubz because they’re great entertainers and speak to London’s youth unlike any other band.

I am old enough to remember when Def Jam only signed the cream []

UK VIDEO: SELAH FT SADIE AMA & MZ BRATT – WOMAN’S WORLD

When I first posted Woman’s World on the site several months ago I said that I liked it, and still do. However I still think that they could have done without the guest rapper on the track. There are songs out there that don’t require a rapper to spit bars. This is one of them. But regardless I think the song will be a hit. The video – They all look beautiful standing in front of the black background, but the other []
