Supermodel Naomi Campbell is currently a contestant on the Italian version of ‘Dancing With The Stars’. Check out her performance on a recent episode of the show; I remember her appearance in Michael Jackson’s ‘In the Closet’ video all them years back, but I didn’t know she could move like this.

What do you think of Naomi’s performance?

Both LeToya and Solange attended Lil’ Wayne’s 25th birthday bash at Club HUSH in Houston on Sunday 23rd September. As usual, LeToya looked great…Solange, on the other hand, has had better days lol. Still, it’s good to see that all hostility between LeToya and the Knowles’ camp all in the past.

R&B songstress Alicia Keys features on the cover for the November issue of Complex Magazine. Though sometimes hit and miss, Alicia has really stepped up image wise. She’s looking on-point. ‘As I Am’, Alicia’s highly anticipated third album, will hit stores November 13th.

Kanye West continued the along the promotional trail for his already Platinum selling album ‘Graduation’ – this time performing a mini-set on ‘Saturday Night Live’ this past week. Check out videos from Kanye’s appearance below:

The performances were great. That 106 & Park skit had me rolling lol.

R&B star Ciara made an appearance on the Tyra Banks show last week Friday. In typical ‘Tyra’ fashion, the ‘Promise’ singer was grilled on numerous issues including her rumored romance with 50 Cent and as well as her ‘tom-boy’ image. It was a real funny interview, which saw Ciara teaching Tyra ‘the dance’ from the ‘Get Up’ video.

As a result of protests by Malaysia’s Muslim groups, Beyonce’s upcoming concert in the country’s Kuala Lumpur region – her first ever there – has been cancelled. The ‘Deja Vu’ singer reportedly refused to conform to the Malaysian Muslim dress code – which doesn’t allow for female performers to reveal any skin from the chest down – or tone down her racy routines. Interestingly, Gwen Stefani, who toured the same region recently, agreed to make changes to her show so that it may be acceptable. {Source}
I doubt her refusal was down to any diva antics. The whole idea of her touring over there seemed to be ill-advised in the first place. A large part of Beyonce’s appeal is her ‘sexiness’ and having seen the show myself, I doubt it would have been possible to alter the show to the expected standards.

The official commercial for Mariah Carey’s new fragrance – ‘M By Mariah Carey’ – premiered on MTV yesterday (September 27th). Though I’m feeling the specially recorded track playing the background, the ad was a mess. I can’t put my finger on what it was, but something was definitely ‘off’.

What do you think of the commercial?

Black Eyed Peas frontman, Will.i.Am, appears on the cover of the latest issue of Ave Magazine. Not sure about this, but I’m kinda feeling what they were trying to do.

With Will’s new solo album ‘Songs About Girls’ having hit stores this week, the artist/producer is making the promotional rounds in support of the project. Earlier this week he stopped by The Jimmy Kimmel show to perform the album’s second single ‘One More Chance’; he did pretty good. Check out the performance below:

R&B star Usher had a phone-in interview with shock-jock radio personality Miss Jones earlier this week. I am literally cracking up as I type – too funny. The ‘Confessions’ singer was attempting to promote his fragrance line, ‘Usher He/She’, but was continually grilled on the controversy surrounding his wife Tameka Foster. Though he shut Miss Jones and co down, this was still pure comedy lol.

As reported yesterday, Michael Jackson is featured in the October issue of L’uomo Vogue (Italian Vogue for men). The 25-page spread is to honor the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s mega-selling album ‘Thriller’. Check out more scans from the shoot below:

In other MJ news, famed fashion designer Roberto Cavalli is reportedly working on a new look for the King of Pop to coincide with the release of his new album next year.

In a recent interview with The Lantern, R&B star Kelly Rowland spoke on the forthcoming re-release of her critically praised, yet poor selling, ‘Ms. Kelly’ album:

The Lantern: Are you reissuing “Ms. Kelly?”

Kelly Rowland: I am actually. I’m going back into the studio to do some more songs. I was very apprehensive at first, but I swallowed my pride. The record industry is very different. Things are going more digital and I want to accommodate my fanbase.

It’s good to see her being honest and not sugarcoating the situation (i.e. the album’s poor performance). I’m assuming the re-release explains the whereabouts of the already-filmed video’s for ‘Work’ and ‘Comeback’.

In other news, UK Kelly fans should be on the lookout for her as she will be hitting these sides in October for a few shows. As soon as more information is available, I’ll let you know.

With the release of her album ‘Her Name Is Nicole’ drawing nearer (November 6th), Nicole Scherzinger is doing the promo rounds in support of the project – this time hitting up Yahoo’s Pepsi Smash. The Pussycat Doll front-woman performed the album’s lead single ‘Whatever You Like’. Though the song is still the pits, I did like the performance. It’s a shame the material she is putting out isn’t up to par as she has the potential to be big; judging by the little hype surrounding the project, it seems many feel the same way.

What do you think of the performance?
