Aside from a few vocal snags, Kelly did her thing – I especially liked the ‘Comeback’ and ‘Bad Habit’ performances. In other, somewhat puzzling, Kelly news, ‘Ghetto’ from her ‘Ms. Kelly’ CD is going for adds at Urban radio. I’m kinda baffled as to why, when ‘Comeback’ has been confirmed as the official next US single (with a video already shot too). My only guess would be that the label want to put out as much possible from the album – video or not?
Singer Lauryn Hill was recently interviewed by TV Maniacs, following a concert in France. The reclusive star, spoke on a number of issues including her comeback, the current state of the music industry as well as The Fugees situation.
It’s a pretty interesting interview. She wasn’t as ‘out of it’ as many would have you believe; yet I couldn’t help but notice that she rarely looked at the interviewer or into camera. Whatever it is that she’s going through, I hope she can overcome it. Having said that, she did have a few valid points.
What do you think about the interview?
The video for 50 Cent’s latest single ‘Ayo Technology’ (ft. Justin Timberlake) debuted lasted night. The track is definitely one of the better singles 50 has released from the project so far (which isn’t saying much). The Minority Report-themed video is pretty good too – although it was kinda underwhelming. With ‘Ayo Technology’ serving as the third or fourth single from 50’s upcoming ‘Curtis’ CD (I’m losing count) , the performance of this release will likely determine the success of the album. ‘Curtis’ drops September 11th.

Matthew: “But she’s (Beyonce) a hard troop and all of the Destiny’s Child ladies are. I’m proud of her and all of the ladies. I’m using this word “Destiny’s Child” cause that could be the day so Destiny’s Child album is coming soon. I don’t know, did I just said it?”
This really doesn’t surprise me. It’s a given that the girls would record again somewhere down the line – they’re still in their prime. I felt their last CD, ‘Destiny’s Fulfilled’, was one of their best efforts and for that reason I’ll be checking for their new project whenever it surfaces. One small tidbit: It’s great to hear Matthew promoting Solange’s upcoming album, yet I couldn’t help but notice that he never mentioned a thing about Kelly’s CD. I’m starting to wonder if there’s truth to the rumours of Kelly severing ties with Matthew’s management company? Just thinking aloud…
Allred said she’s [Brown] filed a paternity suit against Murphy to legally establish that he is the father of their nearly 4-month-old daughter, Angel Iris Murphy Brown.
“Murphy was promising to do the right thing, but to date he has not done the right thing,” said Allred. “Mr. Murphy can have all the babies he chooses to have, but his responsibility needs to be to his own children. [Brown] is seeking sole physical and legal custody.”
Still, Allred said Brown would be happy to arrange for Murphy to see his daughter regularly “like millions of parents do.”
“He bought a big diamond ring for his new fianceé,” added Allred, referring to Murphy’s recent engagement to girlfriend Tracey Edmonds. “It is nice to be generous to others, but what about his own baby?”
The video for Will.i.am’s new solo single ‘I Got It From My Mama’ premiered today. Although I’m really feeling the song, the Bryan Baber directed video left a lot to be desired (which I expected would be the case). Still, it’s workable and with the track’s infectious hook, Will likely has a hit with this one.
