Check out the third preview of B2K’s forthcoming reality show:
Watching this back really reminded me of how badly Chris Stokes screwed them over; Omarion comes across kinda wrong too. I’m actually hoping these guys make something of themselves with this comeback – if only just show that you can’t hold people down with such shady tactics.
A number of R&B/Hip-Hop releases drop today, most notably Bow Wow & Omarion’s joint effort ‘Face Off’, Mario’s long-awaited ‘Go!’ and singer/songwriter The Dream’s ‘Hate It Or Love It’. So which, if any, will you be picking up this week?
Keeping the exclusive interviews coming, I’ve just gotten confirmation that That Grape Juice will be interviewing rapper Trina next Wednesday. The Diamond Princess is currently prepping the release of her new album ‘Still Da Baddest’, which drops via Slip-N-Slide/EMI on February 12th 2008. Do feel free to drop any questions you have for her in the comments section. As is usually the case, only legit/genuine questions will be considered. Thanks
Bow Wow and Omarion were guests on a ‘Sexual Health’ episode of the Tyra Banks show, alongside rapper Eve and Dita Von Teese. I am still in hysterics about what went down when Tyra asked “Stand up if you’ve ever faked ‘it’…” Check it out:
LMAO at Bow Wow! Omarion’s face was priceless. I’m guessing the jokes kinda write themselves with that one…
It appears the guys formerly of B2K (sans Omarion) are serious about putting out a reality show. Check out another teaser clip of the show below, in which Omarion, former manager Chris Stokes and the ‘B2K’ name rights are discussed:
This actually seems like it’ll be a good watch. Aside from the obvious strained relations with Omarion, it’ll be interesting to see how they plan on making a comeback.
As many of you by now Kanye West’s mother, Dr. Donda West, sadly passed away over the weekend. West was 58. Whilst no official word has been given on the cause of death, some reports have cited ‘complications from cosmetic surgery’. Check out the reports below, both via TMZ:
A plastic surgeon refused to perform plastic surgery on Dr. Donda West because he thought there was a risk of a heart attack. Dr. Andre Abolian told her she needed to get clearance from an internist but Dr. West went ahead with a tummy tuck and breast reduction without the co-sign from the internist.
The fire service were called to Ms West’s residence, following a 911 call:
A hospital spokesperson tells TMZ that an unresponsive West was brought to their ER around 8:00 PM Saturday night. They attempted to resuscitate her, but were unsuccessful. She was pronounced dead around 8:30 PM that night.
Whatever the cause, this really is sad. When I heard the news on Saturday, I was in shock. Evidently Kanye and Donda were close and it’s probably near impossible to identify with what he’s going through right now. Having been in London when he received the news, I can’t help but think what the plane journey home must have been like for him. My condolences go out to the entire West family. RIP Dr. Donda West.
It appears yet another defunct group are jumping on the reality show bandwagon in hopes of resurrecting their careers – this time it’s B2K. Before I continue, I’m literally cracking up right now at the ‘realty show’ spelling – very professional lol. About the trailer, it was pretty interesting to see the guys back together, as well as the hinting at there still being unresolved issues with Omarion. Saying that, this kinda screams desperation to me; none of the group, aside from Omarion, have achieved any solo success. Hmmm…
The video for the first single from Bow Wow and Omarion’s joint album ‘Face Off’ premiered yesterday. Considering I had my preconceptions about the album, I must say that I am liking this song and video; nothing great, but still pretty good. ‘Face off’ hits stores December 4th.
It was announced a couple of months back that rapper Bow Wow and R&B singer Omarion are set to release a collaboration album titled ‘Face Off’ on December 4th. The cover art for the CD has just surfaced and I must say that I’m liking it – the split face effect is kinda cool. There is potentially a feature with the guys on the site soon, so watch this space.
