Syleena-Johnson-blue ivy-thatgrapejuice

Much to the exasperation of Beyonce‘s beloved #Beyhive, Grammy-nominated songstress Syleena Johnson dared to compare Blue Ivy‘s hair to that of late rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s.  The move may have resulted in a quite a few stings from the fan group, as seen here, but the ‘Angry Girl’ singer reveals that she has taken it all in stride.

Maintaining her stance on the little one’s hair, Johnson was recently interviewed on a red carpet where she did at least profess her love for Bey and child. This, of course, not without standing her ground and passing a few jokes along the way.

Fellow R&B diva India.Arie is not a fan of people making fun of Blue’s hair (read her open letter slamming critics here), but the ‘All Falls Down’ diva is not willing to back down to ‘computer thugs.’ Read her comments below:

Syleena Johnson Update

Syleena Johnson Update Some of you may have been wondering about the whereabouts of R&B songstress Syleena Johnson, following the release of her last album ‘Chapter 3: The Flesh’ back in 2005.
After the poor performance of her last LP, Syleena severed ties with then label Jive Records in 2006. A year later the singer gave birth to her and husband Kiwane Garris’ first child – Kiwane Garris Jr in August 2007.
Having signed a deal this year with with Federal, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, Johnson’s own label Aneelys Records (Syleena spelt backwards) will release her new album ‘Chapter 4: Labor Pains’ as a joint-venture on September 2nd. {Source} Check out new promo pics for the release below:

I’m real amped for Syleena’s new album; ‘Chapter 3: The Flesh’ was one of my favourite records upon its release – I vividly remember having ‘Hypnotiq’ and ‘Another Relationship’ on constant rotation. It’s a shame the album didn’t fare as well as it could and should have – much of which can be attributed to the label’s lack of support. Here’s hoping that ‘Chapter 4’ earns Syleena the recognition she deserves.
