PIC: Mariah Carey’s Pregnant Belly

29 Mar

Mariah Carey posted a picture of her decorated Pregnant belly on twitter yesterday with the caption, “My attempt at being festive on 3/27. Coming Soon Dem Babies!”.

Over the weekend Mariah was rushed to the hospital after what was believed to be labor pains. But it was a false alarm. If she did give birth, the babies would have been born on Mariah’s 42nd birthday.

Beyonce Announces Mathew Knowles Is No Longer Her Manager

29 Mar

Beyonce’s publicist finally revealed that Mathew Knowles is no longer representing Bey as he manager. In a statement to the Associated Press, Beyonce says that she is grateful for the role that he has had in her career and that she still has love for her father. “He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly.”

I’m not shocked.

Former Destiny’s Child members Kelly and Michelle also broke away from Mathew Knowles. As the media focused on Mathew’s extramarital affairs and lovechild born a year ago, Beyonce and her father were seen in the public less and less together. In June and September of last year, rumors circulated that Beyonce and her father were feuding but those claims were shot down by a rep for Beyonce both times.

The question now is who will be taking over as Beyonce’s manager?

Wouldn’t be surprised if her husband steps in and she’s represented by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation!

Chris Brown Splits From Publicist

28 Mar

Last week was one of ups and downs for Chris Brown. And things just got a little more interesting since he and his previous publicist, Tammy Brook (pictured), have parted ways. Initially, there were reports that Brook quit after Brown’s outburst on GMA, but Necole Bitchie reported that Brook was actually fired.

  “It was something that was in the works for a while, his team wasn’t happy with her and their contract was up“.

I thought Brook did a good job considering she helped bring Chris back to life after the Rihanna incident had him blacklisted and nearly ended his career. Tammy tells TMZ:

“I am an entertainment/music publicist and was hired as a publicist, as they often are, to work specifically on his music publicity for the term up to the release of Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E. album, which was released on Tuesday March 22 and is entering the Billboard and iTunes charts at number 1 this week.

I love and support Chris and it has been an honor to be a part of this album and I look forward to the possibility of working with him again in the future.”

With clients that included Terrell Owens and Mike Tyson, Tammy knows a thing or two about managing a crisis! A new publicist has not been announced yet.

Foxy Brown Kicked Off Tom Joyner’s Fantastic Voyage Cruise

28 Mar

Foxy, girl, not again…

What is supposed to be a time of fun and relaxation, you have to wonder what one can possibly do to get kicked off the Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage Cruise?

Recently, Tom Joyner revealed on his morning show that rapper Foxy Brown was kicked off the cruise last week. “We put Foxy off the cruise. Let’s just say she got put off. You had to really act a fool to get put off.”

Tom didn’t offer any juicy details about Foxy’s behavior on the cruise, but he did comment on what happened a few days ago, Continue reading

Tyrese Covers JET Magazine

28 Mar

Tyrese is set to prepare for a big year, and no way to kick things off than being featured on the newest cover of JET Magazine. The R&B singer is gearing up for the release of two expected blockbuster movies (Fast Five and Transformers 3), a new book “How To Get Out Of Your Own Way,” and new album scheduled for a Summer release.

In the interview outtakes (which didn’t make the published article), Tyrese reveals how he continues to stay ‘hungry’:

“I live my life by these words: ‘You can’t get points today for yesterday’s game.’ You won MVP last week, OK, get over it. It’s like, there’s another level to this thing and people like Will Smith and Denzel and Rev Run and …[I have a few billion-dollar and multi-billion friends] … these people have really messed up from showing me this life and lifestyle because I know that there’s a-whole-nother level of playing field out there that I can get to. Now, people get complacent. People stop being inspired when they have more than all of their friends. If you do that, then you lose your motivation, Continue reading

VIDEO: Big Sean ft. Chris Brown “My Last”

27 Mar

Big Sean’s been on a performance spree the last few weeks, hitting up SXSW in Austin, TX with his G.O.O.D. Music family as well as taking the stage alongside his label mate  CyHi da Prynce at XXL’s Freshmen concert on Tuesday (March 22).

Now Big Sean is taking a step further mainstream by dropping a video for his song “My Last” featuring Chris Brown, which is set to appear on his debut album “Finally Famous: The Album.” The video shows footage of Big Sean back in 2005, early in the rapper’s career. I like the way the video shows the rapper’s journey. Check it out!

Jay-Z Will Be Sade’s First Collaboration…Ever

25 Mar

The music Gods are definitely showing Jay-Z some favor! Longtime music staple and R&B, soul great Sade has requested the Roc Nation superstar for a remix to one of her songs.

Jay raps alongside the British songstress, who is known for avoiding collaborations with artists throughout her career, on the remix to “The Moon and the Sky,” a track found on last year’s platinum-selling Soldier of Love.

The remix, along with two other never-before-heard recordings, will appear on Sade’s double-disc set The Ultimate Collection. The 28-track offering also features classic Sade songs and will arrive May 3rd.

Now not only did he manage to hop on a track with one of the most sought after artists of our time, but he somehow managed to marry R&B’s reigning queen Beyonce, had Oprah in the projects AND keeps Obama on the text…I’m definitely scared of what Jay-Z is gonna do next!

And ya’ll wonder why they call him the greatest…
