Promoters Face Backlash For Featuring Vanilla Ice In All-Star ‘Selma Anniversary Concert’

National Television Awards 2010 - Winners Boards

The name ‘Selma’ is ringing many bells in 2015.

Indeed, despite losing out on the ‘Best Picture’ Academy Award this year for the 2014 Ava Duvernay historical film developed in its honor, the film remains a highly recommended watch by fans and critics.  A timely affair as March 7th, 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the city’s infamous ‘Bloody Sunday,’ the movie kicked off what is set to be a number of tributes in homage to the Alabama town’s mark on history.

The most notable acknowledgements will come via this weekend’s 40+ events commemorating the march on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, including an all-star concert featuring the likes of T.I., Tamar Braxton, Anthony Hamilton, Rick Ross, and Fantasia as well as appearances from President Barack ObamaMary J. Blige and Bono of U2.  And, while fans of ‘Do What U Want‘ co-stars Lady Gaga & R. Kelly were disappointed to find out the duo will not be performing (as previously reported), some are expressing even deeper disappointment that ‘Ice Ice Baby’ star Vanilla Ice has been billed as a featured performer.

He may have just faced legal trouble for home invasion and burglary charges, but now it seems the former hitmaker is being accused of stealing another piece of black culture something else:

Weigh In: R&B Crooner Tank Slams Fans/Music Industry For Not Supporting R&B In Fiery Instagram Rant

tank-thatgrapejuice
“Maybe I should’ve been born white then all of my music would go straight to mainstream…”
“I look better, produce better, write better, and perform better than damn near everybody and this is the thanks I get?”

The quotes above are just two of many fiery statements lifted from Grammy-nominated R&B singer Tank‘s Instagram today (December 19).

Upon learning that a music video would not be financed for his latest single ‘Stronger,’ the multi-talented singer/songwriter lent a lengthy speech to the social media network to break down his frustration with his record label, lack of support of R&B from fans, and status of the genre in the music industry overall.

Despite landing top 5 placement on the Billboard 200 with one of the biggest R&B records of 2013 (‘Three Kingz’ by TGT), Tank has not been able to match that success by his lonesome.  The feat not only fueled his rant, but also saw him allude to never making another “true R&B record” again.

As artists like Beyonce, Chris Brown, Jhene Aiko, August Alsina, Trey Songz, K. Michelle, D’Angelo, and more are finding real success with “real R&B” records, do you feel Tank is wrong in his assessment?

New Song: Tank – ‘You’re My Star’

tank

Despite an impressive Billboard debut with their inaugural joint album ‘Three Kings’ and a Grammy nod, R&B crooners TGT (Tank, Ginuwine, Tyrese) have been plagued with ongoing breakup rumors since their trouble union began.

What certainly won’t do much to cool those rumors is the premiere of Tank’s new solo single ‘You’re My Star’. Reportedly the first single from his sixth studio album ‘Stronger’ (due later this year), the tune surfaced online today as the ‘One Man’ maestro continues (by his lonesome) to serve as the opening act for fellow R&B crooner Jamie Foxx on a Stateside tour.

Does this signal the end of TGT?  Either way, get into Tank’s new solo tune below and tell us what you think:
