Mariah Carey has long called legend Patti LaBelle her godmother. And it’s more than a flowery title; it’s a role Ms. Patti takes super seriously.

During a visit to Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live to promote her infamous pies and new cooking show, the grandam diva was questioned about advice she’d give Mimi heading into 2018 and her response was rather telling.

See what we mean below…


Camila Cabello is strutting ahead to the January 12th release of her debut solo album.

Aptly christened ‘Camila,’ the set is preceded by global smash ‘Havana’ and buzz cut ‘Crying In The Club.’ 

Two new songs join the pre-release mix today – ‘Never Be The Same’ and ‘Real Friends.’ Both of which were made available


JaQuel Knight, the man whose ideas lie at the heart of Beyonce‘s videography, is talking.

What about?

Coachella 2018.

For then and there Beyonce will storm the festival with a headlining performance fans are travelling far and wide from to see in the flesh.

Why Mr. Knight says their efforts are worth the trouble?

Dua Lipa is the one to watch.

Rising to the top of Brit-Pop’s ranks with her cool brand of catchy and conversation-cuts, the vocalist now finds herself on course to casting a Union Jack-coloured shadow over the likes of Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato in 2018 now she has set her sights on the U.S.

Why some fans are calling her the one to beat? Because she is.

‘Clumsy’ singer Fergie lived up to the title of her 2007 hit in more ways than one when she attended The Trevor Project’s TrevorLIVE L.A. Gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel Sunday night in Los Angeles.

As has been making headlines since, onlookers reported the former Black Eyed Peas frontwoman appeared to be high on a little bit more than life she she crashed the stage not once, but twice over the course of the night’s festivities to go on unscripted rants.

In addition to the troubling scenes played out on stage, sources also noted bizarre behavior behind the scenes – occurrences leading the rumor mill to spin with whispers the chart-topper may be indulging in old habits [see:  battle with crystal methamphetamine addiction].

After striking out with ‘Bad Things’ and introductory solo single ‘Crying in the Club,’ Fifth Harmony alum Camila Cabello is undoubtedly crying tears of joy after finally finding a sizable hit in ‘Havana.’  An almost inescapable tune on radio, the cut’s ascension to the Billboard Hot 100’s top 10 was also assisted on the back of impressive streaming and digital sales.

Combined, the song’s performance on the respective listening formats have kept it a mainstay at #2 (notching its 5th run in the rung this week) behind Post Malone‘s ‘Rockstar.’  Yet, while Malone has been able to keep ‘Havana’ at bay, what it certainly hasn’t done is slow its progress…

Via Billboard:

Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, spends a fifth week at its No. 2 high on the Hot 100. It rises 3-2 on Radio Songs (115 million, up 9 percent); retreats to No. 2 after two weeks atop Digital Song Sales (54,000, down 36 percent); and holds at No. 3 on Streaming Songs (34.4 million, down 14 percent).

The additional stats above helped push the cut right into new certification terrain as it’s now crossed the double platinum threshold!  As congratz ring about for Camila, see who join her in the top 25 of this week’s Chart Check:  Hot 100:


Patti Labelle stopped by ‘Watch What Happens Live’ last night alongside Sam Smith to dish with Andy Cohen on her holiday album, cooking show, and – of course – tis the season for “Patti Pies.”  But, to accompany the news she served on her latest endeavors, Labelle also served a bit of “tea,” if you will, on late R&B vocalist Luther Vandross (who was a longtime friend of hers).

When Cohen quizzed Smith on critics likening him to the ‘Superstar’ singer, the host turned his attention to Miss Patti to ask about the legendary crooner’s rumored battle with “coming out” as openly gay.

Scribbled in history books for some good and not-so-good reasons, 2017 brought with it some of modern music’s most memorable moments.  Now, as the year draws to a close, TGJ is reflecting on our favorite moments that rocked – and to some degree reshaped – the Urban and Pop musical landscape as we know it.

Next up we reflect on once beloved gospel star Kim Burrell and the year she fell from grace…


‘Mouth Diarrhea’ diva Tomi Lahren has certainly put the #Beyhive in a sh*tty mood after she took to Twitter to slam Beyonce for honoring footballer/social activist Colin Kaepernick at this year’s Sports Illustrated Sportsmen of the Year Show.

Like fellow conservative political commentator Ann Coulter, Lahren has had a sordid past with Bey’s beloved fan group and is no stranger to their attacks.  We’re guessing those previous wig snatchings were forgotten, so she was painfully reminded this morning when they got wind of her disapproval of Beyonce & Kaepernick’s interaction.

See how it unfolded below:


Packed with cuts like ‘Sky Walker’ and ‘Pineapple Skies,’ R&B crooner Miguel is seeing his latest effort – ‘War & Leisure’ – soar to the top of this week’s R&B sales and streaming charts across multiple platforms. Seemingly in a bid to ensure the pop charts receive the set similarly, the Grammy winner’s been on a relentless promo run – a feat that’s seen him touch ‘Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show,’ ‘TRL,’ the late night TV circuit, print, radio, and many more places.

Today fans were treated to live renditions of some of the album’s favorite numbers via his official VEVO channel. Curious to see how he fared? Tuck in below to see:
