Amerie Talks Twitter

Amerie recently did an interview with HoneyMag.com where the singer talked about relationships, staying true to herself and connecting with her fans. The 29-year old spoke of connecting with fans, saying “I always reach out to my fans. When I first came out, I had my own website and I would do an update. A lot of people weren’t doing that. Some were, but not a whole lot. It was more like posting a paragraph about what’s going on. And now with Twitter and everything, it’s just like a constant influx of information from everyone, you know? I do have a Twitter account and I definitely do use it.”

Snoop Dogg wants to step into Oprah’s shoes

After the tragic development of Oprah giving up her lifelong profession of making the world a better place with her talk show, it seems Snoop Dogg wants to step in and take charge of this massive responsibility. Here’s what Snoop Dogg said on the matter: “I’m trying to proposition the networks right now. If you’re wanting a nice, black, exciting young male who wants to turn the TV world right up – get at me. I heard Oprah Winfrey is leaving and there’s nobody who can do what Oprah did but, ahem – hello! Hello!” A nice, black, exciting young male? It sounds more like Snoop Dogg’s auditioning for a strip show, rather than Oprah’s old show. What’s the world of rap coming to anyway?

Beyonce has the best track of the decade

Well now, here’s a diva that doesn’t flaunt her ways in public so much as some others one might think of… and she seems to be more successful than those “others”. It seems Beyonce’s song “Crazy in Love” has just made the #1 position on NME Magazine’s “Song of the Decade” list. Boy, this decade must’ve sure been missing some really good music, but then again, the list is probably a reader’s choice so we can blame it all on them. Hopefully this won’t go to Beyonce’s head too much… there’s no need for another Mariah Carey running around ravaging the countryside.

Chipmunk has a hectic life

The young British rapper who recently posted disturbing messages on his twitter page apparently resorted to such extreme measures because his life was too hectic. Chipmunk related the following about the matter: “I just needed to take some time out to rest and get my head together. I try and take everything in my stride. It’s been a successful year for me. But I still haven’t had the chance to let anything sink in yet, I haven’t had a chance to think about it all. I’m just too busy. And I get followed everywhere too, it’s crazy. It’s a bit boring right now, it’s my birthday and I’m not even going to do anything.” Ok, so first it’s tragically unbearable, and now it’s boring? Chipmunk should really make up his mind… and if he needs a vacation, why not just ask for it...

Timbaland Axes Chris Brown

Sources are confirming that Timbaland has axed Chris Brown off a track on his new album and the decision wasn’t entirely because of the music. Sources say that the controversial R&B singer provided some vocals for a song called ‘The One I Love’. Realizing the connotation that carried having Chris singing the song, he was cut. Though reps for both camps deny that being the case, rapper DOE, who also appears on the track, which was originally called ‘Maniac’, says that the track was changed because some people didn’t think it would be a good idea to attach Chris to a song with that title.

Jay-Z Refuses Pictures with Models

Beyonce seems to have her hubby Jay-Z wrapped around her little finger. While attending the Victoria’s Secret after party at M2 last week, the rapper refused to walk the red carpet and take any photos with all the hot models out of respect for his singer wife. According to a source, Victoria’s Secret practically begged Jay-Z to take pictures with the lingerie models but the rapper would not budge. Beyonce must crack that whip hard. I’m pretty sure Jay-Z has become a laughing stock. If people weren’t scared of what he’s capable of doing to them, I’m certain they would have laughed in his face.

A bit of advice, shell out a little for a financial adviser or an accountant and this wouldn’t happen.

Halle Berry Talks Rihanna

Halle Berry is no stranger to domestic abuse, having dealt with the abuse against her mother by her father, as well as an abusive relationship in the past. That being said, the actress shared some thoughts on the incident between Rihanna and Chris Brown. Halle said “Recently, Rihanna stepped forward and obviously she had an issue with domestic violence. She was able to get away which isn’t often the easiest thing. Any time a woman frees herself from that kind of bondage and that kind of situation I’m proud.” In related news, Halle recently helped launch photographer Mark Liddell’s book ‘Exposed: 10 Years in Hollywood’, in which some of the proceeds will go towards the Jenesse Center, a domestic violence organization.
