Hot Topic: Is There An Absence Of Black Men In Pop Music?

jason derulo august alsina that grape juice 2014 600x353 Hot Topic: Is There An Absence Of Black Men In Pop Music?

With roots that run deep in Black culture, it’d be safe to say Hip Hop & R&B remain the go-to genres for most African-American males hoping to try their hand in the game that is music.

Leaving the genres’ lovers with enough testosterone to last if a few lifetimes, the US’ frequent delivery of new “Urban” blood has proved to be quite successful for the labels behind said “blood”, with each and every major label housing at least one of categories’ leading acts.

Miguel at ‘Sony.’

August Alsina at ‘Universal.

However, while labels seem to have no problem making exclusively Pop acts out of Black females, it would seem that the same can’t be said when it comes to Black men.

Indeed, while backing from ‘Top 40′ and ‘Rhythmic’ radio has seen Rihanna and Beyonce  has seen them dip in and out of genres at will, one would be hard pressed to find a Pop-pushing African-American male being marketed as a Pop act by their supporting label.

This, after the Black British force that was JLS failed to rock any US charts with their inoffensive brand of ‘Backstreet‘-inspired Pop despite soaring in the UK with the very same material.

Interesting, when one remembers Jason Derulo topped the UK’s R&B singles chart with the outrightly Pop ‘Whatcha Say.

With the above in mind, we ask…

Is there an absence of Black boys in Pop?

…and…

Does race matter when it comes to genre?

Meow: NeNe Leakes Sinks Claws Into Wendy Williams

wendy nene leakes 600x315 Meow: NeNe Leakes Sinks Claws Into Wendy Williams

Both NeNe Leakes and Wendy Williams are renown for “saying like they mean it”. As such, it’s little surprise that the pair take the same approach when dishing on each other.

Once a regular on Williams’ hit talk show, Leakes has been notable in her absence  of late- yet she’s still routinely mentioned in the chat maven’s infamous ‘Hot Topics’ segment.

Seemingly fed up, ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ star took to her blog to lay into the former shock jock. And while it’s unknown what exactly triggered the outburst, there is some talk about NeNe being featured on today’s Hot Topics regarding a Birkin bag she “defaced” with graffiti.

NeNe’s no holds barred words await after the jump…

Hot Topic: Would You Pay To See Mariah Carey On Tour?

me i am mariah album cover. that grape juicejpg Hot Topic: Would You Pay To See Mariah Carey On Tour?

It’ll take more than a tanked album and negative press to stop Mariah Carey from reaching her fans.

Sure, though their decision not support her new LP ‘Me.I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse’ may have the star’s fan base face criticism from rival fan bases, this year will give them a second chance to prove their loyalty to the star once tickets for her new tour go on sale!

So, taking the above and recent tours launched by Madonna, Lady GaGa and Beyonce in mind, we ask…

Does Mimi have it in her to launch an arena/stadium tour?

…and…

Would you attend it if it arrived in your city?
