On going solo:
“It’s just one continuous journey. I started out just making music that showed the other sides of me. I am still exploring that. I don’t think I have found any definite number of songs that says, ‘This is it; this says who I am as a solo artist coming out.’ I haven’t found that yet. I am continuously being challenged and inspired. It’s safe because it’s not out yet, but it’s also scary because you really want to challenge yourself as an artist, to take risks. You want to do things that you’re not used to doing. I got to work with a lot of people that I wouldn’t have expected to work with. I was in the studio the other night, and I was like, ‘I didn’t even know I could do this. This is great!’”
On media portrayal:
“I don’t think they show my story. I don’t think they show who I am. Sometimes, when I read my stories, I am not interested So why are other people going to be interested? I know that here is more stuff in here. There are more stories and more interesting things to talk about than what lies on the surface. When I read stories about myself, it just seems so one-dimensional, kind of shallow, I think.”
“I reached out to Scott just a couple days ago,” he said. “Cause all this stuff I been hearing in the press about him, I just called him and said look man we been friends for so long and I’m here for you. All that stuff that I’ve done I’m sorry, I just know that you need a friend. And I just wanna be there for you cause I know people turn their backs on you.”
“I reached out to him and went over to his house and he was almost in tears cause he thought I would be the last person that would call him,” he added. “When he went against me he said that that shut a lot of doors for him.”
It’s good to see the both of them getting their ‘grown man’ on.
The suit, which also names Kardashian’s siblings Khloe, Kourtney and Robert Jr., alleges they ran up the charges on the mother’s card in 2006 and 2007. It seeks the return of the money plus 10 percent interest. Kim Kardashian denied the allegations, telling PEOPLE she and her siblings had Norwood’s permission to make the purchases.
“We have her signature on all items,” Kardashian says.
In the lawsuit, Norwood’s mother, Sonja Norwood, who is also her manager, alleges Kim Kardashian had only been authorized in 2004 to make one purchase on the Norwood American Express card in Kim’s then-capacity as a stylist for Brandy (Brandy’s brother, Ray J, also appeared in the infamous sex tape with Kim).
But later, Kardashian, now starring in the E! reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, made unauthorized purchases and passed on Norwood’s card number to her siblings, who also then made unauthorized purchases, including for items in two Kardashian family-owned clothing stores, Dash and Smooch, for a total of $120,636.
I can see that this whole Ray-J and Kim Kardashian mess is getting worse. I’m thinking Sonja should check her son, who is pretty much a joke thesedays, before suing anyone though.
Since hearing the video for Missy’s ‘Ching-A-Ling’ was set to debut today, I’ve been anticipating it. Missy didn’t disappoint. Though she’s served up better efforts in the past, I’m really liking this. Directed by famed director Dave Meyers, the vid is being billed as the first ever 3D video – which may explain certain things about the way it looks. In an industry that likes to rehash the same ol same ol, Missy’s innovativeness is welcomed. ‘Ching-A-Ling’ is one of many singles to be released from the ‘Step Up 2’ soundtrack – which is out tomorrow (February 5th).

This is quickly shaping up to be a hot mess. Too many release dates have been thrown out there, only to be changed later. Mariah needs to be bringing her ‘A’ game and no less, if all these delays are to be justified. I’m starting to think the arrival of a certain Ms. Jackson over at Def Jam – who is of equal or even more a priority – could have something to do with all of this.
MJ’s ‘Thriller 25’ is set to be released here in the UK on February 11th and February 12th in the US. See the star-studded promo vid below:
With Christina Aguilera’s ‘Back To Basics: Live From Down Under’ tour DVD set to hit shelves in the US tomorrow, this new performance of her club smash ‘Dirrty’ (from the tour) has hit the net. Aside from the unnecessarily long intro, it was a great performance. It really highlighted that not (m)any of the females out today could compete (or come close) on the vocal side of things. Kinda random, but I think she should revisit this sound on her next LP because that ‘Back To Basics’ album was a mess.

R&B star Alicia Keys performed a medley of hits and new material during her set at yesterday’s Superbowl Pre-Show on the University of Phoenix Stadium’s field. I really enjoyed the performance; Alicia showed out vocally, stage presence etc. Awesome.
