I guess Sasha really is fierce. According to HITS Daily Double, Beyonce’s new double disc ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ is said to be the #1 album by next week. She is expected to sell anywhere between 500,000 to 550,000 units of her album. That’s not good enough to match Taylor Swift’s sales though as the country singing cutie sold 592,000 copies of her latest album. If Beyonce does get number 1, it’s going to be a close call for #2 – either David Cook, Nickelback or Taylor. I hope Taylor beats the boys. Either way, it’s not going to be a bad week for any of the singers.

Brandy Norwood and singer/actor Tyrese Gibson were seen chumming around at Westfield mall in Century City, California last week. An eyewitness told Life & Style “They seemed very close. You could tell they were very much used to each other’s company. It looked like much more than a friendly relationship.” An insider also said “She’s obviously looking for love. But are they 100 percent dating? Not yet. Are they two very successful, gorgeous people who are hanging out a lot? Yes. You do the math.” Tyrese was quick to shut the rumors down though when he talked to Us Weekly saying “Brandy and I have been the best of friends since we were 14 years old. She’s one of the most talented friends I have. I would never date her – it would be like dating my sister...
TRL has gone and said goodbye but they made sure that they left an impression. Beyonce opened up the show by singing ‘Single Ladies’ and ‘Crazy in Love’. Carson Daly and Damien Fahey took to the stage to host a bit before a clip of Miley Cyrus was shown. Then Diddy took to the stage to talk about TRL. Ben Stiller and Christina Aguilera also had clips for TRL before they went to Fall Out Boy performing on a huge stage out in Times Square. Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez also did a mini reunion recollecting their NSYNC days. Kid Rock, TRL news correspondents, Snoop Dogg, Nelly, Ludacris, Vanessa Minnillo, Heidi Montag, Hilary Duff and many others showed up to say goodbye to the show. It sucked that some of the performances were pre-taped though.
The famous 90’s band No Doubt will reunite and do a tour in the coming future and former lead singer, Gwen Stefani is very excited about it, even though she recently gave birth to a new child. She had this to say: “I don’t think we should wait. Pack up the babies and get a bunch of nannies. So fun! Would be so inspiring to get out there and play all those songs again.” Right… well, looks like Gwen will probably make a great mom. Well, no matter, maybe her heart-breaker son will get to go a bit wild while his mom is on tour, might do his talents a world of good.
Kanye West has taken to his blog to address his most recent arrest in the UK for allegedly assaulting a member of the paparazzi. For the sake of those with sensitive eyes, I typed parts of his blog post in the friendly style instead of his angry caps. In his account the rapper said “When I left the club, I was encountered by a thirsty paparazzi as usual. He felt he had more rights to my space than me so I put my hand up to prevent him from taking my image. I didn’t assault him but merely putting my hand up to cover his lens. My security yelled ‘get the camera off him.’ I guess in all the commotion the camera scraped his nose.”
It looks like 50 Cent’s new album ‘Before I Self Destruct’ has lived up to its title. The record has went off only to self destruct. The CD has now been pushed back to 2009 without a specific release date being set. The record was originally set to come out in early December to hopefully capitalize on holiday buying but after the kickoff single tanked, it’s now getting kicked to the curb. I say we should blame Scott Storch for producing the embarrassment of a first single ‘Get Up’. The official reason being given for the album’s delay is that the rapper was rushing to meet the December date but that he opted to wait until next year to fully secure advertising and retail placement.

Brandy has been spotted shooting a music video for her new single ‘Long Distance’. YouTube currently hosts an audio of the song. The 29-year old Grammy award winning singer is coming back with her first album since 2004 and it is set to debut on December 9.
