Ne-Yo is a Pimp

blog2-neyo.jpg

R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo just proved how much of a pimp he is as he walked out of opera a few days ago with several beautiful girls on his arm. And ever the crowd-pleaser, he decided to please them all at once by buying all the roses that the neighborhood flower lady was selling. And you know that made her day too.

While Ne-Yo was buying roses, other vendors bombarded him wanting to sell him CDs or to take his picture. The singer remained quite the gentleman by not only buying what they were selling but doing the impromptu photo op as well.

I guess his model-like ladies got him in a good mood.

Liam Gallagher Hates Oasis’ Early Music

oasis-rocker-liam-gallagher.jpg

Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher hates his band’s early material – comparing his voice to cartoon bird Tweetie Pie. The Live Forever singer, 35, cringes when he hears songs from Oasis’ 1994 debut Definitely Maybe. What’s the story morning glory is a great album. Definitely Maybe is just ok. Retrospection mostly gives the negative jibes to all people because after some 10-12 or even later we all think about the mistakes we made in life and how we could have done it in a different fashion. There are always many ways to do many things but what sense you have at the age of say 25 are certainly going to be different from what sensibilities one has at 35-40...

How many times has Michael Jackson made a comeback? Maybe Britney should take notes. But then again, maybe not.

The king of pop is on the cover of the October 2007 issue of L’UOMO Vogue magazine. His photo shoot was headed by photographer Bruce Weber.

The magazine shoot is reportedly part of a deal Michael struck with designer Roberto Cavalli. Details of the deal says that Michael would do the photo shoot for Cavalli and in return, the famous designer would make clothing for Michael for his new look to support the release of his new album.

How picky of him.

Rapper David Banner defended his controversial lyrics on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, as fellow hip-hop star Master P apologized for using the word ‘bitch’ on his past hits. “Drugs, violence and the criminal element were around long before hip-hop existed.” Yeah, and nobody used adjectives like “b*tch, ho, and [the n-word] to describe that criminal element. What a *ahem* douche. What an idiot. Does he think his “hip-hop” is doing anything to eradicate Drugs, violence and the criminal element with his music? Sure they’ve been around a long time…..but why promote it in that fashion? D*ck...

Madonna Plans Another World Tour

The Queen of pop is planning another world tour next year to celebrate turning 50. Madonna, who turns 50 next August, will call the tour “Madonna at 50.” I would never pay that much money for tickets to see her. I think it’s messed up that she charges that much. Plus the fact that she does stuff just to piss people off bugs me. I don’t care that she was on a cross for part of her performance I care that she did it just to cause shit and piss people off. I can’t stand this lady anymore. I saw her in Hartford Ct. Why to pricey no air condition she was not that good she spent 1/2 the time changing cloths maybe showering it was so hot. And her back up dancers did alot of stuff I paid to see her not them. Plus she was preaching. I would see Justin Timberlake Again he rocked the HOLE time….

A music video that is. Emmy Rossum has just released her video for ‘Slow Me Down’, her first single off of her upcoming ambient pop album which is due out on October 23. If you want to know what that means, well, if you like Imogen Heap, Frou Frou and Sia, you are definitely going to love Emmy.

Emmy talked a little about her video at the Teen Choice Awards last month. She went on the record about how the video was shot and it’s connection to the song saying “We were shooting at different speeds because the song’s about the pace of life and to create the blur of the world and how overwhelming that can be.”

It was first reported that he ended up straining his voice due to his performance at the 2007 MTV VMAs which took place in the middle of his massive tour. But this is Justin Timberlake and he was raised to be a good southern boy with all those loveable southern qualities. Honesty, being one of them.

The ‘SexyBack’ singer went back to San Jose, California Sunday night to make up for the concert that he cancelled the day after the Video Music Awards. Justin took time to speak to the audience and revealed the real reason as to why he cancelled. “Certain bloggers said I cancelled because I was hung over and they were right… I was.”

You can’t blame him now.

Fall Out Boy Raise Child Soldiers Awareness

Fall Out Boy are using their fame to raise awareness about the use of use of child soldiers at war in Africa. Great strategy to get attention…sounds very interesting, though. I hope I get to see the video. But if they are really committed to bring attention to some really important child labor and child exploitation issues then that’s a worthy cause that they are putting their efforts into bring people and the world’s attention to...

Keith Murray Offers $7,000 For Stolen Laptop

rapper-keith-murray-photo.jpg

Rapper Keith Murray is offering a $7,000 reward to be reunited with his stolen laptop which contains more than a decade’s worth of his work. Oh man! That is heartbreaking to have his work stolen! And the thief had some nerve to even shout what he did. I hope the thieves get what’s coming to them. Or can it be the other way round, look at my mischievous mind. Was the person who stole the work a spy agent hired by the person from whom Keith stole the work and now it has come a full circle? It could have been the successful plot of a movie, a struggling music artist approaches a then rap mogul to help him find a foot in the music industry, he throw the new kid on the blow out of his home...
