Solange and Baby Daniel

In an interview with WENN, Beyonce’s younger sister Solanage offered advice to 16 year old Jamie Lynn Spears – the pregnant sister of troubled pop star Britney Spears:

“I have been so blessed that my son is the coolest kid ever. Of course, that first year of not sleeping and just being dedicated to him had tough parts but that’s fine. It’s been a blast for me. A lot of people have doubts, but when you have a child I think it takes a really non-emotional person not to have a blast, no matter what age. I’ve heard stories of people who were 14 that had kids and basically snapped into it and got into the groove of motherhood. I think that emotional attachment, there’s nothing out of it that you could regret. {Source}

Check out this remix of Snoop Dogg’s latest hit ‘Sensual Seduction’ featuring the Queen Bee, Lil’ Kim. As ever, Kim is her raunchy self and it’s pretty good version of the song.

As many of you know, Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman welcomed their new son Max into the world on Saturday. After the news of baby’s arrival, Christina released this new video for ‘Save Me From Myself’ to celebrate with her fans and thank them for their support (hence I’m assuming it’s not a proper release). Included in the vid is never-before seen footage of the couple’s wedding. Anyway, having been, somewhat, underwhelmed by Christina’s ‘Back To Basics’ CD, I’m glad she released this…it’s a great song.

R&B singer Craig David serves up ‘6 Of 1 Thing’ as the 2nd single to be lifted from his current album ‘Trust Me’. After a difficult few years, Craig seems to be finding himself musically again. Both the song and video are leaps and bounds better than that shambles of a first single ‘Hot Stuff.

Wyclef stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel show earlier this week to perform his current single ‘Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill)’. I’m really feeling this song, the performance was pretty good too. Wyclef’s latest album ‘Carnival Vol. II: Memoirs of an Immigrant’ is in stores now.

The promotional campaign for Janet Jackson’s latest album ‘Discipline’ continues, with the star appearing on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard magazine. In the no-holds barred feature, Janet speaks on the poor performance of her last two albums, the difference between Virgin and her new label Def Jam , what we expect from ‘Discipline’, tour plans and more. Check out the comments section to read the article.

Interestingly, MTV have added the recently released ‘Feedback’ video to their schedules for the week beginning January 14th (next week Monday). MTV’s lack of support for Janet since ‘the incident’ has been well-publicized and hotly debated. It’s worth noting that the network did add ‘So Excited’ (from Janet’s last album ’20 Y.O) to their video schedule – only opting to play it at graveyard times. Whether the video for ‘Feedback’ gets the same treatment will be interesting to see.

Having only been on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks, ‘Feedback’ currently sits at #52. With the video having debuted this week, as well as the song having officially gone for ads too, one can expect the song to continue to rise.

Dawn Robinson's Ex-Husband Calls Her Out Former EnVogue singer Dawn Robinson has been put on blast by her soon-to-be ex husband Andre Allen on his MySpace blog. It’s a long, but interesting read:

“First & foremost, I would hardly EVER respond to sh*t talking from anyone but today I make an exception. These two ASS HOLES have gone on a rampage to destroy my name today while no one was even THINKING about them. If you read the blog comments, I was referred to by Dawn’s sister as a transvestite f**king homosexual who beats women & has sex with every woman he meets! Wow…gay but has sex with every woman I meet…LOL…this sh*t is a laugh! Well…since she felt the need to have her sister & a few of her closest friends come over here let me give you all the REAL reason why I left Dawn’s ass!!!

One…she was signed up to porno sites & wanted to swing with other couples…before I got involved with her she admitted to sleeping with 17 men in one month from one swinging site…I GAVE HER THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT & THOUGHT SHE WAS JUST REALLY COMPENSATING FOR ALOT OF INSECURITY! I stayed. THEN…she NAGGED the shit out of me day in & day out because I was always busy & she didn’t know enough about the business to just get her own shit done…NO…she wanted to be a f***ing DIVA & complain about EVERY f***ing thing that I DID set up like she was still BEYONCE! NOBODY was checkin for her ass when I was with her! NOBODY hardly would book shows unless she was in En Vogue…I side busted & got their asses back together but the only ones who knew what they were doing was the other 3 members of the group! THEY were the smart ones!

They knew how to get shit done & book shows but I had to always appease Dawn’s ass & say…”no, you’re right baby…those old tired bitches ain’t nothing without you”…SHIT…she is quite literally THE stupidest person I have ever met…I fell out of love with her…I left her…now these IDIOTS are coming to my page trying to destroy my name with my fans??? HOW DARE YOU!!! You don’t want to dance with me! Why? Because I dont give a F**K! Your record is PUBLIC! You got kicked out of En Vogue & they didn’t even want to FACE you because you are the most DIFFICULT person in the world to deal with! They left you sitting at a photo shoot for the last album & didn’t tell you where they were at shooting the EV3 cover without you…remember that???

Raphael Saadiq kicked you out of Lucy Pearl because your attitude jeapordized an operation he worked HARD to get off the ground…and HE didn’t even face you…you found out you got kicked out on the RADIO!! Ask yourself why Dawn…because…you’re a phony, nagging, complaining, two faced, spoiled rotten BITCH!!!!! We haven’t even STARTED talking about your deal with Dr. Dre! What happened there Dawn? He BOOTED you before you even started because he saw your mouth a mile away! You dug this grave for yourself! Now here is a warning…keep my name out of your mouth & keep your friends & family members OFF of my myspace page”

Messy. I never even knew these two were getting divorced (they were supposed to be doing a reality show). Anyway, it’s hard to not believe what Andre’s saying and, if true, it’ll make Dawn’s fall from grace all the more worse.

Kelis At 'First Sunday Premiere' Kelis At 'First Sunday' Premiere
Singer Kelis made an appearance at the movie premiere for ‘First Sunday’ (starring Ice Cube and Katt Williams) yesterday. Ms. Jones was looking good. On a side note, I’m hoping she gets snapped up by another label soon (having parted ways with Jive late last year); the industry needs artists like her.

The coroners report on the death of Kanye West’s mom, Dr. Donda West, was made public today. According to the report, West died of ‘coronary artery disease and multiple post-operative factors due to or as a consequence of liposuction and mammoplasty’. Put simply, she had a heart attack after the surgery. A definitive cause of death, therefore, could not be established. Dr. West died on November 10th. {Source}
Here’s hoping Kanye pull through, what must still be a very difficult time.
