Criminally underrated by some of Kelly Rowland‘s younger fans is her debut studio album ‘Simply Deep.

A cool and halcyon collection of Pop-leaning R&B tracks, the mature album is most appreciated by Destiny’s Child fans who’d enjoyed the album ‘Survivor’ a year earlier in 2001.

Today, fifteen years after its unveiling, Deep’s tales of self-discovery, first loves and deep losses continue to move its admirers who have taken to Spotify to support it.

The result? A monumental achievement with the ‘Past 12′ songbird.

Kaya Jones, a former member of the Pussycat Dolls, is refusing to remain silent on what she says was abuse she endured at the hands of the group’s founder Robin Antin.

Kaya made headlines days ago when she claimed that Antin was the mastermind behind an organisation which saw the Dolls use Pop music to market themselves to wealthy men.

What Kaya sells they were really selling? Their bodies.

Robin denied the claim and called her former employee a liar but not even the threat of being silenced by the law has stopped Ms. Jones from spilling never-before-heard stories about the group’s business dealings.

As we reported last week, Nicki Minaj was one of 20 influential rap figures covering XXL magazine for its 20th anniversary cover.  Inside the mag, the Harajuku Barbie lifted a number of tongue-wagging quotes as she dished on her relevance and influence to the genre.  None, however, got people talking more than her thoughts on her role in “reintroducing female rappers to the mainstream.”

Expounding on the comment, Minaj stated:

I think female rappers have always been dope and influential, but I think I sort of came in at a time where big business was paying attention, so I was able to capitalize off of a lot of deals and business ventures. I aligned myself with a lot of brands, and I was able to show that a female rapper was able to sell products.

Fans of fellow rapstresses – namely Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown, Queen Latifah, and Missy Elliott – took umbrage with the quote.  Taking to the ‘PinkPrint’ performer’s social media handles to sound off, the commentary eventually led her to lend her own lengthy rant defending her statement.
