UK MUSIC: MZ BRATT – SELECTA

Well… Mz Bratt’s Jafaken accent is interesting….. But surprisingly I don’t hate the this track… it’s catchy, it’s a grower,  and has the potential to become a hit single. Selecta also takes me back to the mid 1990s when Jungle music was all the rage. The video – I have a headache now. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? Advertisements

VIDEO: LAURYN HILL PERFORMS AT ROCK THE BELLS NYC

It’s good to see Lauryn Hill out there performing again and looking happy. The singer/rapper performed at the Rock The Bells concert in New York City, and brought on stage with her some very famous faces. *Note comedian Chris Rock got the loudest applause*. Via PunchBowl Blog

WYCLEF JEAN RELEASES NEW TRACK IN PROTEST AGAINST HIS REJECTION TO RUN AS PRESIDENT OF HAITI

It seems that musician and wannabe politician Wyclef Jean is having a hard time accepting his rejection as a presidential candidate for Haiti’s November election. To cut a long story short Wyclef’s bid was rejected because the Haitian constitution requires candidates to have lived in the country for five years prior to an election. The former Fugees star hasn’t lived in the country for years and is therefore ineligible to run. Wyclef, however, isn’t taking the news lying down and according to Punchbowl Blog is blaming outgoing President Rene Preval of []

PIC OF THE DAY: BEYONCE AND JAY-Z LIVE IT UP OFF THE FRENCH RIVIERA

“Superstar” couple Jay-Z and Beyonce have been photographed having a wail of a time, sunning themselves on a yacht off the French Riviera. Out of all the pictures that have been published this one made me laugh the most. I’m sorry but it just looks like Beyonce’s ‘discreetly’ breaking wind with her bottom cocked out like that.

UK FOOLISHNESS: N-DUBZ STAR DAPPY BEHIND THE SCENES DURING ‘SEX’ VIDEO SHOOT

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, N-Dubz group member Dappy will end up single-handedly destroying everything the group has strived to achieve. If Tulisa and Fazer have any sense in their heads they will start working on solo projects outside the group ASAP! At least they will have something to fall back on after the group disbands. Anyway check out behind the scenes footage from the “Sex” video shoot. I can’t decide which is funnier/worse, Dappy rapping complete []

UK MUSIC: ALEXANDRA BURKE FT LAZA MORGAN- START WITHOUT YOU

What can I say about Alexandra Burke’s new single Start Without You… It sounds so CHEESY!!!! I can’t believe they released this as a single. No correction I can’t believe Alexandra recorded this song. Featured artist Laza Morgan’s contribution to this track just sounds ridiculous. The video – Alexandra looks nice. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UPDATE: UK RANDOMNESS – RAPPER WILEY POSTS “SEXY” FOOTAGE ON YOUTUBE ( WHY???)

This has given me my biggest laugh of the day! UK artist Wiley who clearly has far too much time on his hands has decided to post some random video footage/shots of him and singer/songwriter Janiece Myers (never heard of the woman before until now). Wiley, with a visibly erect nipple can be seen “seductively” kissing Janiece  and then viewers are treated to a number of cheesy shots of the two losers lovers. And the use of that dreadful Nicki Minaj track… []

UK NEWS: THE ‘BIG DAWG’ TIM WESTWOOD OFFERED £50K TO APPEAR ON TV SHOW ‘DANCING ON ICE’

The “big dawg” Tim Westwood has claimed via Twitter that producers from ITV1 show Dancing On Ice have offered him £50K to appear on next years show as one of the ‘celebrity’ contestants. As expected most of Tim’s followers have encouraged him to join next years line up, I’m guessing  for their own amusement. The Hip Hop/Rap show BBC Radio 1/ 1xtra DJ replied, “I’d have to dance on ice with a woman who looks like a man in drag. But then later followed up with, “What time does Baywater rink shut tonite?

UK NEWS: SINGER BEVERLEY KNIGHT’S COSMETICS RANGE WITHDRAWN FROM LONDON DEPARTMENT STORE

Last year songstress Beverley Knight launched her own cosmetics range K by Beverley Knight and less than a year later beauty blog Vex In The City reports that the range has been withdrawn from London department store Selfridges. Click HERE to read all about it. This is sad news but I can’t say I’m surprised. Why? 1) The promotion/marketing of the brand was practically non-existent.  What happened Beverley??? 2) Only stocking the brand in high-end department stores Selfridges and John Lewis was []
