Guess which Pop sensation was snapped wowing fans in Toronto last night.
Hint: Her debut album was certified 4x Platinum in the US and 5x Platinum in Canada.
Find out who the ‘Real’ diva is below…
Rihanna was a picture of health hours ago, striking a pose with friends in Capri yesterday.
Indeed, while her seventh album is being crafted for her, the nocalist was caught partying it up on a yacht in seemingly high spirits.
All this, months before she is set to launch a 2013 world tour following from the so so received ‘Loud Tour’.
Ever the hard worker eh?
Mariah Carey is to be honored at September 7th’s BMI Urban Awards, for her contributions to Pop music which span an impressive two decades.
The icon will be awarded in the company of her industry peers at the Beverly Hills event – which takes place shortly before the expected release of her long awaited new studio album.
Check out this shot of ‘Fame’ genius Lady GaGa, enjoying a studio session with Dr. Dre‘s Kendrick Lamar.
Surfacing online this morning, the pic’s arrival sparked reports the maestro is to work on her forthcoming LP in some capacity, following their meeting last weekend captured here.
Unfamiliar with Lamar’s work, check him out in action below…
X Factor graduates Little Mix may still be whipping up their debut album, however the quad are in full promo mode for the LP’s lead single ‘Wings’.
Proving that they aren’t the typical talent show act, the ladies served up a harmony-heavy rendition of the track. Check it out after the jump…
As the Urban community awaits Brandy‘s ‘Put It Down’ video with baited breath, the Vocal Bible debuted the song live in Washington, DC last night.
Taking front, stage, centre at the Howard Theater, the songstress rocked the house with a heavily choreographed spectacle.
All the action after the jump…
Feast your eyes on ‘Fame – Formulation‘, the visual piece in aid of Lady GaGa‘s forthcoming fragrance ‘FAME‘.
Released by the megastar on the social networking site Twitter last night, the clip sees the creative conception of the perfume, billed as the “First Ever Black Eau de Parfum”.
Perhaps in a bid to boost her ‘inexpensive’ stock, Team Tulisa have done quite the job trying to bill the star as the second coming of Cheryl Cole.
For, just in case her ‘Sexiest Woman Of The World’ win wasn’t enough to convince the public she was worth paying attention to, it would appear they have turned to other artists to give the singer very public nods of approval.
Not sure what we mean? Peep comments allegedly made by 50 Cent on the ‘Young’ chart topper below…
‘Put It Down’ diva Brandy is looking to put down rumors that she and ‘The Boy is Mine’ co-star Monica are feuding. For, as fans remember, the two-some’s R&B reunion ‘It All Belongs To Me‘ may have not set fire to pop charts, but it did spark interest in the two co-headlining a tour in support of their 2012 album efforts.
When B-Rocka later rocked headlines with quotes of not wanting to tour with Mo to “do her own thing”, the rumor mill instantly began spinning.
Now, as the ‘Have You Ever’ hitmaker readies her long awaited solo return, her promo rounds have led her to address many pressing issues including the ill-fated tour plans with Miss Thang and news of ‘Two Eleven’ collaborator Frank Ocean‘s recent announcement. Hear her thoughts on this, her last moments with idol Whitney Houston, and more below with our friends at BlackAmericaWeb:
“Hot, Ready, Legal”
Once billed as a an act your mother could love, Justin Bieber continues his calculated transition into somewhat of a sex symbol on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s latest issue.
It’s a contrived narrative that’s been played out many a time before. Yet, it’s a narrative we can’t blame Team Bieber for employing – given the difficulties many child stars face when they pander to Disney-esque audience for longer than they “should”.
At 18, Bieber is a mini-industry – with many hinging their annual pay-cheque’s on his success. Hence, ensuring that success continues means more covers like this, more crotch grabs during performances, and more use of apparently “cool” words such as “swaggie”.
Bieber’s latest album ‘Believe’ is in stores now.
Peep this snap off ‘Odd Future‘s Tyler The Creator and Rap deity Drake, taken last night at Frank Ocean‘s LA ‘Channel Orange’ show last night.
Caught backstage, the lively pair showed their support to the ‘I Miss You’ crooner whose debut album has moved over 200,000 units in the space of two weeks- spawning the well received jam ‘Bad Religion’.
Drake’s sighting at the show comes two days after it emerged his latest tour, ‘Club Paradise’ has pulled a sweet $42 million worldwide since its launch in February
This, landing his show in the top 5 of Pollstar’s Worldwide Tour Mid-Year tally.
Perhaps since 2007, no other Hip Hop name has been hotter than that of Nicki Minaj‘s.
Righting a number of wrongs made by an underground MC before her, Minaj has risen to become the fastest rising Rapper in her field- by way of mainstream notoriety and commercial prowess.
However, perhaps in response to her ‘Pop star’ packaging, the last few years have seen the Rapper labeled disingenuous- fake- contrived following the success of 5x Platinum single ‘Super Bass‘.
Now, the ‘Conceited’ Remy Ma has spoken out in her defense.
Her comments below…
