Chris Brown Lands Major Acting Roles
After a brief stint in teen drama The OC and a role in dance movie ‘Stomp The Yard’ , Chris Brown is taking his burgeoning acting career to new heights. The teen R&B singer is reportedly set to star in ‘Shrek The 4th’ as a Gingerbread pimp – which is apparently a major role. The film is rumored to hit screens in 2010. Before then, Brown, 18, will star in basketball movie ‘Phenom’. The storyline of of the film sees Brown’s character – a high-school basketball player- take on his father’s team in the NBA playoffs. More power to him.

The Baddest B*tch Is Back

After a brief hiatus, Trina is prepping the release of the follow-up to her 2005 album ‘Glamorest Life’. Set to hit stores in August, the rapper’s latest offering has been titled ‘Baddest B*tch II’. Speaking on the new album – the sequel to her 2000 debut ‘Da Baddest B*tch – Trina told Billboard ‘I put 150 percent into this album. I’m stepping my game up like 10 notches..I have a thousand different emotions and feelings and I show it all in this project. I didn’t want to be sad, just happy and high spirited, so people can see Trina really grew up’. Producers on the CD are set to include Scott Storch, Cool and Dre, and Red Spyder. ‘Baddest B*tch II’ will drop August 14th via Slip-N-Slide/EMI.

Considering the fact that I really enjoyed Trina’s last CD, I’ll be checking for this one. I’m hoping she doesn’t exploit her relationship with Lil’ Wayne, as I didn’t care much when they were together and still don’t now. It seems that’s the route she’s going down – the scheduled first single is called ‘I’m Single Again’….

Mariah & Bone Thugs Set To Film New Video

Fresh from the success of their single ‘I Tried’- which peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100- Bone Thugs N’ Harmony are set to film the video for their next single ‘Lil L.O.V.E’ along with Mariah Carey. The shooting is to take place in New York City on June 4th & 5th.

I’m pleased they decided to go with ‘Lil L.O.V.E’ as the 2nd single from their ‘Stength & Loyalty’ album. The track is hot and real radio-friendly too. I’m anxious to see Mariah in the video, as it’s been some time since the multi-octave beauty has been in the limelight.

    You know, I don’t want to knock a player or pimp, but Chris Brown is jumping into movies way to fast. I mean, alot of artist wait at least 3 to 5 years to star in movies, even a small apart, so they can focus on their music career first. He is jumping in to major movies already and it hasn’t even be two years yet. If he keeps this up, he wont be relevent in music anymore, his career will rapidly go in to acting. Just like Tyrese. On top of all of this he IS not a good actor, so stick to making videos rather than movies…
