REST IN PEACE MICHAEL JACKSON

Today is the first anniversary of Michael Jackson’s tragic passing, and even though a year has passed I still cannot believe he’s gone. The best that ever did it. Rest In Peace MJ.

UK MUSIC: IDRIS ELBA – ‘HOLD ON’

British actor Idris Elba has been out there promoting his musical endeavours for sometime now, but this is the first time I’ve actually bothered to listen to one of his tracks, and I’m now wishing I hadn’t bothered clicking on the play button. Idris should stick to what he is good at  – ACTING!!! I am guessing that he  surrounds himself with a bunch of sycophant ‘yes men” because Hold On is hilariously bad. And can somebody please tell me when Idris []

VIDEO: DRAKE PERFORMS ‘FIND YOUR LOVE’ ON THE JAY LENO SHOW

Check out singer/rapper Drake’s live performance on The Jay Leno Show. Studio technology really does do a fantastic job of fooling people. This live performance is proof that ‘golden boy’ Drake is OVER-RATED. His live vocals are appalling. Flat and out of tune. He is probably a really nice guy but that was piss poor! To the UK fans who have purchased tickets to see Drake perform live in London next month….. have fun! [Thanks Kaydine]

Rapper Lethal B who claims the group stole a track from him, was featured on the documentary arguing with group member Dappy at a ‘celebrity’ football match.

ALICIA KEYS RECEIVES BLESSING AT ZULU CEREMONY

Singer Alicia Keys and producer/fiance Swizz Beatz had their unborn child blessed in a Zulu ceremony while in South Africa for the World Cup. According to the Daily Mail Alicia and her unborn child were given Zulu names while standing under a fig tree known as the “healing tree”. Click HERE to view more pictures and to read article… As you can see it turned in to a ”media event’. *rolls eyes* But I understand that Alicia was chosen to receive the blessing as []

UK MUSIC: G-FRSH – BLACK BATMAN

Jay-Z’s influence runs DEEP once again! UK rappers just love to sip that Jay Juice. Three words –  Run This Town. In all honesty the production isn’t bad but lyrically he’s just all over the place. I’ve listened to this track six times and I still don’t know why he’s the Black Batman. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

Mary told Trevor that Britney Spears would come out on top in the long []
