We love us some Aubrey O’Day, yet can’t help but feel that she does herself no favours. At all.

With Celebrity Apprentice wrapped, the former Danity Kane doll is back on her media grind, yesterday serving as the guest host  at Rehab Sundays, a pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Garnished in fake fan a plenty, the ‘Automatic’ singer was snapped her with puppies (and “puppies”) on full display.

Granted the “vixen” angle is Aubrey’s long-established playing card, it simply hasn’t been working for the longest. She’s entirely too talented to be perpetrating this “Barbie” wahala – which itself has been played out for years now. Like, how does she expect to be taken seriously?

Fingers crossed for an image overhaul ahead of another proper push at solo stardom. For her sake.

Last year saw Kelly Rowland break-out in a major way with the mega-smash that was ‘Motivation’. And in keeping her buzz a’buzzin’, the Destiny’s Child graduate is gearing up to unleash the first single from her 4th studio album…much sooner than you may think.

In response to last week’s debacle which saw Pop star Chris Brown and Rapper Drake throw down at an NYC nightclub, the MC has shared his thoughts on the fight with New York fans.

Halfway through his ‘Club Paradise‘ set in the city, the performer weighed in on the issue- telling his side of the embarrassing story.

This evening, Oprah Winfrey‘s long awaited interview with ‘The Kardashians’ will air on OWN.

However, before the anticipated conversation airs, the mogul shocked the world of radio by joining our friends over at Kempire Radio.

The audience at last night’s Lovebox Fest almost got a little more than bargained for, when Rita Ora nearly suffered an on stage wardrobe malfunction.

Taking to the Victoria Park stage to perform cuts from her debut LP ‘Ora’, the triple threat was seemingly unaware her ‘girls wanted to come out to play’, continuing on with her well received set.

Proving that talent is no longer a pre-requisite for success, Cheryl Cole will be celebrating today. For, the lip-syncer’s comeback single ‘Call My Name’ has rocketed straight to #1 on the Official UK Singles Chart – with record-breaking sales.

Cop a gander of Solange!

The youngest of the Knowles clan looks all flavours of fierce in the latest issue of French Glamor.

We must say, we’re loving the self-branding Solo has been doing over the last few years. Eclectic, chic, fashionista. Here’s hoping  these can be leveraged to support her new musical material whenever it surfaces. For, next to her sister, the 25 year old is one of the industry’s most gifted and consistent performers. Yes, you read right.

Get a load of Rihanna‘s latest project- no, not a new album, but a new tattoo.

Taking time out of partying, not working on that voice and tweeting profanities, the model posted the above snap of her new artwork- a falcon placed on her left foot.

Seemingly unfazed by last week’s Bottle-gate, her pic comes two hours before she finds out where her single ‘Where Have You Been’ came in on this week’s UK chart tally.

It also comes after her big screen debut ‘Battleship’ crashed and burned at the Box Office, labelled “a miss” by Comcast’s Brian Roberts.

This week’s From The Vault pick is the crossover Gospel classic, ‘Shackles (Praise You)’ by Mary Mary.

Released at the very beginning of the noughties, ‘Shackles’ was the Atkins-Campbell sisters’ first ever single and stands as their biggest hit. After reaching the pole position on the Billboard Hot Gospel Songs, the cut managed to become a crossover hit placing #28 on the Billboard Hot 100 and coming at an impressive #9 on the R&B/Hip Hop chart. It proved to be a global smash when it hit the Top 10 of multiple countries in Europe as well as Australia.

The accompanying video, which to this day stays an MTV and VH1 favorite, underined the “life gets better” aura evoked by the song’s lyrics (which were penned by the group and Warryn Campbell).


At the time, Gospel purist disapproved of the track and Mary Mary’s work moreover labeling it “too secular”. Although such claims remain a constant about Contemporary Gospel, over the years acts such as Kirk Franklin, Trin-i-tee 5:7, Yolanda Adams and of course Mary Mary have helped the subgenre garner recognition and respect from a greater sect of the faith-based community as well as from the mainstream.

In many ways, this release broke the shackles off old school ideology and bridged a colossal gap. In every way, then, ‘Shackles’ is a classic.


Mary Mary continue their foray into the mainstream with their hit WE tv reality show, aptly titled ‘Mary Mary’. Click here to check out our interview with them on our sister site That Grape Juice TV. And be sure to keep it locked on TGJ TV for your Urban Hollywood fix!
