Two years after launching a huge Kickstarter campaign, iconic R&B group TLC will release their final album on June 30th.

Having given fans a taste of what to expect by way of the Snoop Dogg assisted ‘Way Back’ and ‘Haters,’ the ladies have lifted the lid on the pertinent details of the LP – namely its title, tracklist, and cover.

Opting for a simple yet definitive name, T-Boz and Chilli have christened their last effort ‘TLC.’

As the offspring of the most famous entertainer of all time, Paris Jackson revealed that she struggled to negotiate her identity.

However, now at age 19, Michael Jackson‘s only daughter is ready for her close-up.

Having signed with IMG Models earlier this year, it’s being reported that she’s inked a huge deal with Calvin Klein.

According to Page Six, Paris has signed a huge seven-figure deal with the fashion brand to serve as its face.

In doing so, she follows in the footsteps of major names such as Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, and more recently Justin Bieber.

The deal forms part of a mass media flood from Jackson, who recently guest starred in FOX’s ‘Star’ and signed on to Charlize Theron‘s new Amazon Studios movie.

**********

When born into a spotlight as intense as Paris’, there’s two options – reject it or embrace it. It’s clear she’s now doing the latter. And for that we ain’t mad.

Chris Brown can’t seem to catch a break. Not even on his birthday.

Last night saw the R&B bad boy celebrate his 28th at a Houston nightclub. However, upon leaving, he was formally served with a court-approved restraining order from ex Karrueche Tran.

As reported, the Emmy winner filed paperwork earlier this year to keep C. Breezy away from her and her friends – alleging his threatening and violent behavior as reasons.

Clearly, a judge agreed because Brown must now stay away from Tran and co.

Watch the hella awkward moment her received the papers below…

Janet Jackson is heading back on the road.

As reported, the superstar singer will embark on the ‘State Of The World Tour’ this Fall, with the trek officially kicking off on September 7th.

With tickets now on sale (and doing well), a new promotional poster for the 56-date US leg has been unveiled. Check it out above.

The jaunt sees Jackson hold true to her promise of resuming live dates after having to bring the ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ to a halt due to pregnancy.

But with baby son Eissa born this January, Jackson (who split from the child’s father two months ago) is getting back to business.

Sources close to the 50-year-old assert that motherhood and music are now her primary focus and that she’s working aggressively to ensure she’s in fighting form to deliver her best tour yet.

Anyone who’s followed Janet’s career will agree that her snapback game is on all sorts of fleek. So, we’re sure she’ll deliver dynamite come September time.

It looks like Katy Perry may have to put in a call to Olivia Pope & Associates or an equivalent service. Because her new single ‘Bon Appétit’ is bombing – and in a big way.

Unleashed only a week ago, the Migos assisted track has experienced an uncharacteristically bad chart run.

Indeed, signs looked bad when it failed to ever reach the top 10 of US iTunes – a reality virtually unheard of for a “Katy Perry” release.

Fast forward a week and the track has vanished from the top 100 of the market leader’s digital store.

As at writing, it sits at #103.

Fascinatingly, its below its preceding single ‘Chained To The Rhythm’ (#83) and older efforts from the likes of Lady Gaga (see: ‘Million Reasons’ / #69).

With streaming figures looking equally problematic, it’s unlikely (although not impossible) that even a video will help this.

It definitely makes one wonder: If Katy is struggling to sell / stream singles, what fate awaits her album?

Tamar Braxton is wasting no time tackling her new single ‘My Man’ live.

The 40-year-old performed the emotional song during her Houston, Texas show last night and made sure its inaugural offering was one to remember.

Employing the length and breadth of her impressive range, Ms. She, Me, Her soared to vocal heights with the track – which she says lays bare the reason for her parents break-up.

Watch below…

She did that.

Tamar can definitely grate at times, but her talent is undeniable.

Amazing performance.

The musical mogul Nicki Minaj faces claim that she helped a former friend rob commit a heinous crime by serving as his getaway driver.

Currently hard at work on new material and brand partnerships, the rapper has discovered that her former Hoodstars compadre 7even Up has spilled the beans on their alleged illegal proclivities much to the dismay of her fans.

What he says the business woman did when he attacked someone in NYC?

Watch below…

Minaj parted ways with Hoodstars to pursue a career as a solo performer and was picked up Birdman’s Cash Money collective shortly after.

She’s yet to respond.

Hit the gas, boostin’ my adrenaline

Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature launched to revisit entertainment’s often shocking past.

Today, as their biopic continues to enthral fans home and away, the members of New Edition stand as the subject of today’s class.

Why?

Their unforgettable clash on live television!

Watch below…

Fighting within the force eventually saw them disband and projects as solo acts and duos before finally reuniting to share their story with the world via BET.

Bobby had this to say about it:

I’m amazed. These talented young guys did a great job at being us as young kids and then brought it all the way home. Chris [Robinson, the film’s director] brought everything out of all these actors to make it special. I was sitting in the chair over here and got a little crying on. Watching and being alive to be able to see what my life was and has become and where my life is going from this point on? It’s special, man. These kids put their hearts and souls into this, just like we put our hearts and souls into our lives.

New video alert!

Hoping to bag multiple hits before the unveiling of her next studio album, Nicki Minaj glides into saucy action with help from Lil Wayne and David Guetta with the visual for their jam ‘Light My Body Up‘.

Released as her fans mock her rival Remy Ma over claims of infidelity within her marriage, the video was directed by Benny Boom and impacts the world following the release of her lacklustre visual for her cut ‘No Frauds’.

Is it time for Minaj to welcome new creative energy into her mix?

This Sunday brings with it the dramatic finale of the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ season 9 – and it appears Bravo have saved the full-on fireworks ’til last.

Viewers have watched on as private talk about lady ponds and dungeons has descended into public chaos.

The rumor mill has put Phaedra Parks in the middle of the madness, with suggestion that she is the puppet-master. Allegedly.

And while the answer will arrive in a mere matter of days, a newly released preview shows Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss cry tears (both of the angry and sad variety) in the aftermath of the “reveal.”

See what we mean below…

Looks like must-see TV. We’ll be tuning in this Sunday. Will you?
