Hot Shots: Gwen Stefani At L.A.M.B Showcase

gwen lamb Hot Shots: Gwen Stefani At L.A.M.B Showcase

‘Hollerback Girl’ singer Gwen Stefani poses it up with models rocking her L.A.M.B clothing line at the Fall 2010 Fashion Presentation in New York last night (February 11th), which forms part of  Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Remember when Gwen’s hiatus from No Doubt saw her become one of the industry’s biggest stars a few years back? Pop, Urban, you name it, she had it on lock. Indeed, Ms. Stefani was the Fergie before Fergie, and most certainly opened doors commercially for the likes of Lady GaGa… and Ke$ha (although that particular door should have stayed shut if you ask me!). Now back in the studio with No Doubt, the 40 year old (yes, 40!) will be returning to the charts later this year.

Trey Songz Appears On ’106 & Park’

Trey Songz hit the stage on BET’s ’106 & Park’ today. The singer performed a medley of new songs including ‘Neighbours Know My Name’, ‘I Invented Sex’ and ‘Say Aah’ from his ‘Ready’ LP. Since it’s release on August 31st, 2009, ‘Ready’ has sold over 503k copies.

Songz delivered a very good performance. However, I find it rather baffling that people consider him to R&B’s current leading man. As a performer who primarily sings about sex, to compare him to the likes of R. Kelly or even Usher is quite laughable. He is yet to come close to the successes of those two, either commercially or musically.

Toni Braxton Performs ‘Make My Heart’ On ‘Wendy Williams’

Toni Braxton made a guest appearance on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ today. The diva performed the official 2nd single from her upcoming ‘Pulse’ album, ‘Make My Heart’. ‘Pulse’ hits stores on May 4th.

Although she was clearly lip-syncing, Braxton worked the life out of that stage. She oozed sex appeal and got into the choreography without looking forced or awkward in the least. ‘Make My Heart’ has grown on me a lot since I first heard it and I can definitely see it doing big things on the charts if given the right music video and promotion. Great stuff!

Check out the interview Braxton had with Wendy below where she discussed her marriage and upcoming reality show, among other things, below:

Janet Jackson Records Theme Song For New Film

janet nothing Janet Jackson Records Theme Song For New Film

Janet Jackson has being remaining under the radar while recording her next studio album. However, that’s not the only project that the icon has in the works. Jackson and her former boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, have recorded the theme song for her new film, ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’. Dupri confirms that the track, entitled ‘Nothing’, was co-produced by Bryan-Michael Cox. ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’ hits the big screen on April 2nd. {Source}

Jackson seems to be gearing up to take 2010 by storm. With a new album, movie and theme song, all this activity is reminiscent of the impact she had with the ‘All For You’ LP and the ‘Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps’ film. Coincidentally, after hearing the direction she plans to take with this record, I expect the new album to sound a lot ‘All For You’ which was packed with several up-tempo, ‘fun’ tracks. It’s exciting to see how this will all turn out!

Ke$ha Sets New Chart Record

keha tik tok kesha Ke$ha Sets New Chart Record

Ke$ha has just made history on the Billboard Hot 100. The Pop sensation’s first single, ‘Tik Tok’, has spent 8 weeks at the top of the chart, the longest stay at the top for a female artist’s debut single since 1977. Debbie Boone’s ‘You Light Up My Life’ set the record 33 years ago by holding the #1 position for 10 weeks. {Source}

Seriously? I take it that people in the US just want to party and have a good time given the gloomy weather. Still, the only thing I can say is: seriously?

New Video: LeToya – ‘Good To Me’

The video for LeToya‘s latest single ‘Good To Me’ premièred a few moments ago. Check out the AJ Crimson directed clip above. Keston Karter stars…

As much as we’re feeling LeToya as well as the song, it’s imperative to keep it real; the video – though not bad – left a lot to be desired (visually, concept-wise, budget and all that jazz). However, I must give the Destiny’s Child alumni props where props are due. With her label Capitol offering nothing more than to release the song (i.e. formally service it to radio and nothing else in terms of finance or promotion), Ms. Luckett deserves kudos for pressing on and keeping her face out there. Here’s hoping things work out for her in the long run.

Tidbit: LeToya looked stunning!

What do you think of the video?
