Kreayshawn : “I Wanted To Befriend Azealia Banks”

For one reason or another, Azealia Banks has developed a habit of trash talking her contemporaries.

From downplaying Nicki Minaj‘s talent to labeling Kreayshawn a ‘dumb b”tch’, Banks is becoming just as renowned for her uncensored opinions as she is for her ever exciting music.

This week- while promoting her debut album, Kreayshawn has responded to Azealia’s remarks, admitting she found them to be hurtful.

With confirmed production from Emeli Sande, Will.I.Am and Sandy Vee, the project’s sound- much like Lewis’ career- following reports the star was taking a more upbeat route for the project, a far cry from her previous studio efforts.

Now, in what serves as basis for these reports, Calvin Harris has signed onto to work the LP, months after rocketing to #1 with Rihanna‘s ‘We Found Love’.

Nicki Minaj Slams “Sell Out” Claims

From The Vault: Khia – ‘My Neck, My Back’

This week’s From The Vault serves up “filthy” in earnest. And we’re unapologetic too. For, there’s something to be said when such a risque cut wraps it’s legs around Pop culture, gripping it until the masses can’t but sing along. No, we’re not talking about Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s ill-prepared ‘Birthday Cake’.

We’re talking Khia‘s ‘My Neck, My Back (Lick It)’.

Released over 10 years ago from the femcee’s ‘Thug Misses’ debut, ‘Neck’ has become somewhat of an underground classic and easily rapper’s most renown effort to date. Reaching the 4th position of the UK Official Singles Chart and peaking inside the Top 50 of Billboard’s Hot 100, the “pleasure-manual” is considered by many a guilty pleasure. For as “taboo” as it may be for some, it’s near-impossible to deny the track’s heavy dose of “infectious”.

Diane Martel was tapped to direct the song’s pool-party video. And, though another promo visual (featuring models in bikini’s lipsynching to the track) was later commisioned (the ultimate shade, right?), we’d much rather see the self-proclaimed Queen of the South show folk how to “do it, do it” herself.

Enjoy… just make sure mom is not around when you hit ‘PLAY’!

Glee’s Amber Riley Drops Two Dress Sizes; Flaunts Slimmer Figure

Cop a gander at Glee star Amber Riley!

The actress and vocal powerhouse, 26, has been rocking a noticeably slimmer frame as of late – one she tells PEOPLE is down to cutting out the fast food and burgers which she says “were attacking my stomach.”

Seven months of sticking to a new diet and exercise plan have seen the budding diva hit a weight loss milestone: “I dropped two dress sizes!” she tells the publication.

A cheque her recent appearance at the NAACP Awards 2012 can certainly cash (as seen above).

Speaking on her new physique, Riley – who plays Mercedes Jones on the Fox show, said  “I’m a lot more comfortable in dresses, especially gowns”.

Although, her healthier shape has caused drama in the costume department. “We had to revamp the wardrobe,” she says. “They bought a lot of new clothes for me and we have to take in a lot of my pants and dresses.”

Despite the loss of pounds, Riley asserts “I’ve always been comfortable with my size. I just decided it was time to get healthy.” And wear healthy well she does.

Preview: ‘The Kandi Factory’ (Real Housewives Of Atlanta Spin-Off)

The runway success of Bravo’s  ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has seen much of the cast try their hand other ventures. However, for Kandi Burrus the “reality” pie is one she clearly has a sweet-tooth for, as she is gearing up for the premiere of her spin-off series ‘The Kandi Factory’.

Set to debut on March 4th, the show will see the former Xscape singer give two protégés, with no music industry experience, the chance to fly to Atlanta where she will write an original song for each based on their personal experiences. Thereafter, the amateurs will be coached her team of “experts” – comprised of a producer, choreographer and stylist – to master the key elements that make a pop star.

The winner will see their song and accompanying video produced and released by The Kandi Factory.

A reach? Perhaps. However, we applaud Ms. Burrus’ hustle. More power to her.
