Some 3 years after splashing onto the scene with ‘Crank That’, it’s hard to believe Soulja Boy has extended his 15 minutes so long. Indeed the 19 year old is currently prepping the release of his third studio album ‘The Deandre Way’; a feat, which regardless of how one feels about his talent (or lack of) should be commended.
Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the rapper’s new single ‘Pretty Boy’ and its accompanying video, which premièred today. Simply described as an atrocity in every sense of the word, the lyrical content/delivery on this one has to be heard to be believed…
Ever the spectacle, Kelis made quite a scene while performing at trendy Las Vegas nightclub EVE last night. The singer, performed a set consisting of new single ‘Acapella’, as well as previous hits such as ‘Milkshake’ – which she was treated to a giant cup of. Peep more pics below:
R&B star Alicia Keys kicked off the first night of her ‘Freedom’ tour last night in Ontario, Canada at Scotiabank Place. The Grammy award winner put on quite the spectacle while journeying through her past hits, as well as the newer gems from her ‘Element of Freedom’ LP – and at one point emerged from a cage. Who said, she could only sit at that piano, ay? More power to her.

The legendary Whitney Houston answered back her critics by giving a solid show at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia yesterday. Earlier this week, Houston, 46, hit headlines worldwide when a handful disgruntled fans left her Brisbane, Australia show early, claiming her voice ‘wasn’t there’.
However, clearly much more disciplined with her vocal technique, the diva gave a rousing climatic performance of career definer ‘I Will Always Love You’; which, though not ‘perfect’, reinforced the fact that she should not be counted out – at all. Check it out below…
