VIDEO: Wiz Khalifa “Roll Up” Starring Cassie

28 Feb

Wiz Khalifa’s new song “Roll Up” on the radio and I knew he had a decent single on his hands. In the song, he borrows the rap/sing formula made famous by the likes of Ja Rule and Nelly, while trying to get the attention of a new chick.

Whenever you need me, whenever you want me, you know you can call me, I’ll be there shortly. Don’t care what your friends say, cause they don’t know me, I can be your best friend and you be my homie“.

Regarding who was going to play his love interest in the  video, Wiz Khalifa bypassed being predictable and having his current girl Amber Rose. Instead, he  snagged Cassie for the part.

Ciara and Rihanna Go At It On Twitter

28 Feb

Beyonce fans, in case you were wondering…this is EXACTLY why Bey doesn’t do Twitter!

Friday night, Ciara stopped by E!’s Fashion Police with Joan Rivers to give her input on the latest red carpet hit and misses.  During the segment, Rihanna’s Christian Dior Couture that she wore to the BRIT’s flashed across the screen and the other hosts shared their thoughts. When it was Ciara’s turn to critique the dress, she instead shared with Joan that the last time she ran into Rihanna, it rubbed her the wrong way.

Now all celebs know that sharing how they really feel about another celebrity’s outfit, more less, real personality is a major no no! But Ci Ci broke that cardinal rule when she made these comments:

I ran into her recently at a party and she wasn’t the nicest. I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done in fashion and it’s crazy because I’ve run into her before but this time wasn’t the most pleasant run in”. Joan Rivers blatantly responded, “A b*tch! next”

The comment caused Rihanna fans to fire off angry comments at Ciara on twitter and word got back to Rihanna (who obviously didn’t watch the clip first), that Ciara said that she was a b*tch.

Chris Brown Goes Blonde

28 Feb

Saturday, Chris Brown tweeted a photo of himself after bleaching his hair blonde.     Now I haven’t seen dyed hair on a male R&B singer since…Sisqo. And I think we all agreed that there was NO need to bring that trend back.

Under the photo, Breezy wrote “Look at me now,” which is the title of his upcoming single on his long awaited album “F.A.M.E”. The album drops March 22nd. Is this his way of getting some extra promotion??

Celebrity hair is apparently a big deal. Justin Bieber recently lost over 80,000 twitter followers for something as simple as a new hair cut. People it’s not that serious…

Lil Kim TalkNext Studio Album, Offers From Jay-Z, Appearing On Dr. Dre’s “Detox” & More!

24 Feb

Lil Kim holds nothing back in her recent interview with Rap-Up.

The Queen Bee chops it up about her  upcoming album, working with Dr. Dre, getting offers from Jay-Z and more.

Now that your mixtape Black Friday is out, when are we going to get the next studio album?
I’m always working. You’re gonna always hear music from me. I can honestly say I’m so proud of the body of work that I’ve been producing. It’s a new sound for me, something that I think my fans are gonna love and I’m excited about the new direction. I’m basically always working. You’re gonna always hear music from me, but you’re gonna have that coming right after [the mixtape]. We got some surprises and some treats.

Do you have an album title yet?
I have a few, but I really don’t want to mention them now.

Is it going to be more like the Hard Core days or will we see the pop side of Kim?
You’re gonna get a mixture. There’s no way to just go straight Hard Core. I’m not one of those artists that say, “OK, I’m in a Hard Core mood, so everything’s gonna be Hard Core.” I’m not one of those artists. I don’t live my life like that. I don’t wake up every day and feel that same feeling. I live by the nature really. There are artists who will take a certain concept and go with that concept through the whole album; I’m not like that. I’m an artist who likes for everything to be universal. Continue reading

Carmelo Anthony and La La Vazquez Land VH1 Reality TV Show

24 Feb

Would a three-year $65 million dollar trade deal be complete without VH1 jumping in to film Carmelo Anthony and La La Vazquez for reality TV? Didn’t think so. With the tentative title of

La La’s Full Court Life, which is a spin-off of her last series, La La’s Full Court Wedding, began filming last month, before Carmelo actually inked any deal with the Knicks.

Viewers will get to see the details of their move from Denver to New York City, and how La La maintains her career and family, while celebrity friends like Serena Williams, Trina, 50 Cent, Ciara, and Kelly Rowland all make appearances.

Jeff Olde from VH1′s Original Programming and Production states:

“Viewers connect with La La because despite the fairy tale wedding and NBA star husband, she is a real, down to Earth, hardworking woman who stays true to herself. The best thing about the new series is that while pursuing and realizing her dreams, La La gets to take us back to her home in New York, where her story began.”

Nicki Minaj Talks About Frenemies, Lady Gaga and Diddy In Black Book

24 Feb

The Harujuku Barbie Nicki Minaj covers Black Book’s March Pop issue. The five page feature in the magazine includes an in-depth interview that details the ups and downs on her rise to fame. She talked about many topics including her twitter followers, the Lady Gaga Comparisons and Diddy rumors. Check out a few quotes below:

On her Image
When I started making those weird voices, a lot of people told me how whack it was. ‘What the f*ck are you doing?,’ they’d say. ‘Why do you sound like that? That doesn’t sound sexy to me.’ And then I started saying, ‘Oh, that’s not sexy to you? Good. I’m going to do it more. Maybe I don’t want to be sexy to you today.’

I’m definitely playing a role, I’m an entertainer, and that’s what entertainers do. That’s what people pay for. They don’t pay to see me roll out of bed with crust in my eyes, and say: Hey guys, this is me, authentic. They pay for a show. When I started doing all that weird stuff, I never thought in a million years that it would mean more people would start listening to my music, It was basically a ‘f*ck you’ to everyone who told me what to do and who to be.
