UK NEWS: MOBO DROPS ‘BEST DJ’ CATEGORY

The nominees for the forthcoming 2010 Mobo Awards extravaganza were announced last night and this morning only one question is being asked. What happened to the Best DJ category????  This year the MOBO committee has decided to ignore the nations DJ’s and as you can imagine ego’s have been bruised.

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

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 []
