The ‘Put It Down’ diva already has already put it down with appearances at ‘Good Morning America’, ‘106 & Park’, and is still set to guest ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ tomorrow!

But before you set your DVR to find out how Brandy is doin’ *in Wendy’s voice*, see the hilarity that ensued when Miss Norwood dropped by tonight’s taping of Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens’ with Andy Cohen.

There, the singer dished on the new album, Kim K., Monica, Whitney, and even played a rousing game of ‘Match That Ass’. It all awaits below…



‘Your Body’ beauty Christina Aguilera is certainly making her promo rounds in support of the 3rd season of NBC’s top rated reality talent show ‘The Voice’.

Sitting down with E!‘s Chelsea Handler tonight, the pop siren dished on everything from her November-due album ‘LOTUS’ to her love of going commando (as evidenced by Etta James’ funeral).  As ever, Lately went there (as she always does).

Much to R&B lovers delight, a recent press release confirms that Cleveland, Ohio will be home to the first induction ceremony of the R&B Music Hall Of Fame  – a newly designed museum to include “state-of-the-art, highly interactive, virtual reality experience” to honor popular music’s legendary R&B artists.

Like its ‘Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’ counterpart, its inductees will include artists who have made considerable impact on the genre as it relates to its evolution and incorporation into mainstream music.

First up?  None more fitting than the late, great icons Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston


She may be joining Jay Z to whip up a modern-day spin on classic musical ‘Annie’, but that hasn’t stopped ‘Whip My Hair’ hitmaker Willow Smith from finding time to salute some of her favorite artists – namely ‘Rolling In the Deep’ diva Adele.

For while the British beauty’s latest hit ‘SkyFall’ has taken her to the top of charts, it – like her many other hits – has seen many of its admirers take to Youtube to offer their rendition…Smith being no exception.

See her take on Adele’s latest hit, the theme to the forthcoming James Bond franchise of the same name…




‘Get Your Freak On’ femcee Missy Elliott is getting her promo on in support of her long awaited return to music.

Headed by fan favorites ‘9th Inning’ and ‘Triple Threat‘, Elliott is finding herself teasing fans left and right – hitting many outlets plugging the new record months ahead of its release.

Recently dropping by Fuse, the ‘Hot Boyz’ hitmaker reflects on her 15-year old debut album ‘Supa Dupa Fly’ and even teases her next set’s title.  See it all below:


‘Friday’ funnyman Mike Epps may be constantly building his comedic resume, but recent news may see him step out of character and into that of another comedian – the legendary Richard Pryor.

A role undoubtedly eyed by many, Epps is set to portray Pryor in the forthcoming biopic ‘Nina’ based on the life of singer/songwriter/activist Nina Simone.  As headlines have revealed in the past months, the title role was awarded to ‘Colombiana’ actress Zoe Saldana (despite Mary J. Blige reportedly being a shoo in for years).

And, unlike the biopic itself (which has not received the official blessing of Simone’s family), Epps says the Pryor family’s blessing is what ultimately led him to take the role.

No official word on when the project can expect to be released.



Your thoughts?

With almost a month until the release of her new album ‘Unapologetic‘, Rihanna continued to put the finishing touches on the project in LA last night.
