*Videos now updated and work. Youtube are trash…deleting all the videos*

Fantasia appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show yesterday to promote her stint as Celie in the Broadway production of ‘The Colour Purple’. Tasia gave a near-flawless performance of one of the songs from the play called ‘Im Here’. It was very emotive..she even shed a few tears.

Performance – I’m Here

Lloyd – Get It Shawty

Unsure about this one. The track is ok but the video is kinda bland. It should do well, though, off the back of his last single ‘You’ which hit #1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop chart.

Lumidee (ft. Tony Sunshine) – She’s Like The Wind

Although I didn’t think I would, I’m liking this one. Maybe its because she’s rapping instead of attempting to sing (like before). Video is pretty much your standard R&B vid – nothing more, nothing less. One question though: Why does the feature artist appear more on the track than she does?

Timbaland (ft. Nelly Furtado & Justin Timberlake)

Not liking this one at all. The video is cheap as anything and I just can’t get into the track. Nelly’s voice- which I usually don’t mind- is really nasal and annoying. Then again, it might just be me…I can’t get past the idea that the song is supposedly taking shots at two artists I respect – Prince and Janet.

As promised here are the new Beyonce music videos, which debuted today.

Beautiful Liar (ft. Shakira)

Shakira & Beyoncé – Beautiful Liar

I’m kinda disappointed with this one. It really comes across as a missed opportunity. Here you have two of musics leading females and they put out such a lackluster and cheap video.

Upgrade U

Much better video. Everything is on point apart from some of the choreography. Apart from that the video is hot.

What Do You Think?
I know some of you have been waiting on this one since the solo version of this track leaked a while back. This song is scheduled to be on Beyonce’s B’Day re-release, due to drop on April 3rd. I’m liking it alot, but I kinda like the solo version better. *Be sure to check back here tomorrow, as the videos for this track and another (rumoured to be Upgrade U) are expected to drop then.*Anyway..check it out:

What do you think?

VARIETY reports that superstar singer Janet Jackson has been lined up to star in a new Tyler Perry movie (Madea series, Daddy’s Little Girls). The film, titled “Why Did I Get Married”, centres on a couple who go away with friends each winter to examine their marriages in a group setting. One of the wives brings along a sexy young temptress who causes plenty of trouble for the couples. Stars also signed up for the film include Jill Scott and Sharon Leal.
It’s Good to see her doing more films. However, will there still be a tour, if filming starts in March?
What’s up with all these stars repeatedly running in with the law? Busta, Foxy and now Bobby Brown (again). Brown was arrested yesterday for non-payment of child support fines and failing to show up in court. More embarrasingly, he was arrested outside his daughters’ (not Bobbi Kristina) cheerleading competion. Brown, 40, was said to be co-operative and is expected to post bail shortly.

10 time Grammy winner Beyonce graces the March cover of Pride. The title story has me kinda baffled. I know she’s loaded but $100 Million loaded? I’m not sure about that. Either way she’s making that money so more power to her.
