Rihanna Remixed


Rihanna is going to be ringing in the new year with a compilation of remixes from her double platinum album ‘Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded’. The album is set to drop in stores on January 27th and will contain 12 tracks, 2 of which are remixes of her very popular hit ‘Umbrella’. Like I said, the 20-year old Barbadian babe can probably never do any wrong. She’s really just milking it while everybody still wants the cow. But how many times can one song be remixed or covered anyway until we finally get tired? Oh well, I still can’t wait to hear it.

Diddy is a Lawyer


Diddy filmed his part playing defense attorney Derek Powell last week for an episode of CSI: Miami that will air in February 2009. Diddy told People just how he came about the role when he talked with CBS execs. He said “I don’t want to play no musician, I don’t want to play a criminal. None of those stereotypical things. I want to play a lawyer.” The entertainment mogul also said that he was thrilld to be on one of the biggest shows in the world. Diddy said “The ‘CSI: Miami’ team is like the Yankees. Me coming on the set, I’m like a Little League player with the Yankees. [David Caruso], he’s like Obi-Wan Kenobi or something! He taught me so much and let me ask questions and protected me. He’s like the coach of the team.”

Christina Milian VS Rihanna


Christina Milian is back on her first magazine cover ever since she parted way with Island Def Jam back in 2006. The 27-year old singer broke her silence to Rap-Up on the emotional past 2 years, her reaction to ex-boyfriend Nick Cannon’s marriage to Mariah Carey and her new album on MySpace Records. She said something pretty interesting on the reason why she was dropped from her label though. She said “It was a budget cut, I believe. [Def Jam] probably got rid of projects like mine to spend the money on [Rihanna].” Those are some fighting words missy. Rihanna is queen and you know it!

Kanye West to honor ghost by doing spirit singing


What taking over all these music guys, Nicole Kidman doing the Bollywood (Indian Film Industry) number ‘Chama Chama’ in Milan Rouge, the Madonna stepping up things with her ‘Mehendi’ colored hands and saying ‘Om’ in her music videos some years ago.

Now it seems that the same bug has caught upon Kanye West. He thinks that by doing spiritual singing he will be able to avoid ghosts and that in turn will aid him in improving his singing.

Nothing guys, these chaps just visit India for a day or two and catch hold of some well known spiritual guru and then return chanting his verses without even knowing what he has taught them and whether their teachings are relevant or not.

The ‘Stronger’ star was recently criticized for ditching rapping and instead be singing on his current album ’...

Akon Goes Easy


As it was reported earlier this month, Akon’s court date with a Fishkill Town Justice Court had been postponed til recently. The singer’s assault trial came as a result of a June 2007 concert when he threw a 15-year old concert goer off of the stage. Akon has pleaded guilty to second degree harassment. He ended up having to pay a $250 fee and was also sentenced to 65 hours of community service. Talk about getting off easy. He should have at least been feed for the poor kid’s hospital fees and the family’s legal fees. What possesses someone to throw a guy off stage anyway?

Beyonce has the X Factor


Beyonce looked stunning in a black gown that she wore for the 2008 Los 40 Principales awards ceremony at the Palacio de los Deportes in Madrid, Spain last week. The 27-year old singer recently did a Britney Spears as weel when she made a guest performance on the British show X-Factor. Beyonce performed the song ‘Listen’ as a duet with Alexandra Burke. If you were able to catch the show, you should also know that Alexandra was eventually crowned the winner of the show. Even if you didn’t catch it, you should know that she would win anyway. Who loses after performing with Beyonce anyway?

Rihanna for Nicole Richie


Rihanna has reportedly been asked by Nicole Richie to help her launch her solo music career. The reality star was previously part of a rock band called Darling back in 2004. Kelly Osbourne, the daughter of Black Sabbath Rocker Ozzy Osbourne, has also reportedly been asked to consult. According to a Daily News source “Rihanna and Kelly are coaching Nicole and giving her tips on how to perform.” If it is true, it may just be a hot product. Everything Rihanna touches is pretty much gold anyway and Kelly’s a pretty good performer too. Nicole has got some pretty amazing people vying for her.

Kanye West to be politer to the Paparazzi


Any reason why he said that? Just simple, because he want some damn favor and he know he has to be at his best behavior to get the paparazzi wooing for him or else he will have to do it his way which is to dish out a million bucks and he’ll get painted as the poster boy of the town for just doing nothing.

The Stronger hit-maker has had troubles with the photogs on 2 different occasions this year along after clashing his now seemingly good friends. He was detained by the English police just last month after being accused of pushing a camera into a photographer’s face. He was subsequently released without charge.

Cannot understand another reason for his new found love for those guys expect for that he needs them to be on his side for some useless promotion...

50 Cent changes his appearance to dapper


50 Cent used to wear sliver and platinum chains till recently but 50 Cent now has kind of (temporarily or permanently it is not known) shifted his style from thug to dapper lately. Gone are the heavy chains and rugged looks and now we have tailored suits.

That was the crap news cos’ it really doesn’t matter what 50 Cent wears or how he looks to millions what we would rather cheer is if he would reduce the price of is music and we all deserve it. If the Fed can cut interest rates to their lowest since may be 1954 then man we got to have everything at cheap prices.

That especially we some of us still can bear to listen to a piece of crap that 50 Cent manages to call music and the music charts kind of award his albums some kind of rating...
