Cher Lloyd Signs with Jay-Z

 

Cher Lloyd, a finalist from UK’s reality TV singing competition X Factor, is rumored to have signed with Jay-Z’s record label Roc Nation. Black Eyed Peas front man will.i.am, who performed with Cher on the show’s finals and has reportedly already recorded a song with her, previously said that he would sign her to his label but I guess he didn’t close the deal. A source tells UK’s The Sun “Even though Cher didn’t do terrifically well in the X Factor finals, there’s been a hell of a lot of interest in her. Will.i.am’s backing only intensified the battle to get her signature. After weighing up the pros and cons, it was thought that the team at Roc Nation would be best placed to turn her dreams of stardom into a reality.”

The Game Gets Robbed

 

The Game recently took to his Twitter to tell an awful story, detailing how a valet made off with some of his prize possessions while he was out doing some last minute holiday shopping for his kids. In the rapper’s tweets, he explained the thief made off with an expensive Louis Vuitton bag, some jewelry and $75,000. Who keeps that kind of stuff in the car? According to sources, The Game wasn’t able to get the justice he wanted on the Nordstrom valet due to the police being around and the fact that he’s on probation. Violence is never the answer but I hope that the thieving valet got some sort of punishment.

Amy Winehouse’s Old Lyrics Found in Trash

 

Sources are reporting that some of Amy Winehouse’s early work has been found in a trash can in London. Several notebooks that he singer kept in her youth were found sitting in the garbage and they included lyrics that she wrote before she broke into the music industry. The Sun published a few excerpts from the book, including the lyric “I’m digging myself into a hole/These days I’ll just work when once I had so much soul”. I just have a couple of questions after reading this bit of news. One, why would she throw that away when it has so much potential? But a better question would be this – what kind of person would dig through Amy’s trash?

Abbey Road Named Landmark

Last week, the crosswalk near Abbey Road studios, made famous by The Beatles and their album, aptly called “Abbey Road”, was declared a historic landmark by the British government. The crossing was given the Grade II status, an honor generally reserved for buildings of historic significance. When reached for a comment, Paul McCartney expressed his happiness with the recognition, acknowledging that it’s been a great year for him and the band and “hearing that the Abbey Road crossing is to be preserved is the icing on the cake.” I think it’s an honor that well deserved. There’s never been a more memorable place to cross the street.

Jamie Foxx Credits Daughter for Successful Music Career

 

According to Jamie Foxx, we should all be thanking his 16-year old daughter Corinne Foxx, for steering him in the right direction with his music career. The singer/actor recalls an afternoon when he was first starting to put his album together and his daughter overheard the jams. He said “When I first started I was doing this little slow music, you know, just R&B … and my daughter walked in and said, ‘What you doing?’ I said, ‘I’m working on the album.’ She said, ‘I hope you don’t put that on there because you going to put everybody to sleep.’” That’s when Corinne told Jamie to reach out to some younger artists to help him out. Enter Kanye West, Drake, Justin Timberlake and Ludacris and he gets an amazing album.

New Chipmunk Video – Champion

British rapper Chipmunk recently premiered the music video for his song “Champion” via VEVO. The song is the first official single from his upcoming sophomore album “Transition” which hits stores in the UK in the first quarter of 2011. The video for the Chris Brown-assisted single was directed by Corin Tilley and was filmed a couple of weeks ago in Miami. It’s a nice visual with an epic feeling. As for the song, it’s massive. I can guarantee you that it’s going to be a smash hit for Chipmunk. I also have a feeling that Chris will be able to get back some UK love with this too.

Fantasia Barrino Cleared of Affair

After a long and intense road, it looks like Fantasia Barrino can at the very least find some peace of mind in this bit of news. A North Carolina court has found that the singer’s lover, Antwaun Cook, was indeed separated from his wife during their relationship. That means that Fantasia did not have an affair with the fact that Antwaun had been separated from his wife since September 14, 2009 as opposed to June 2010, which is what Antwaun’s ex Paula had claimed. If you don’t already know, that also means that Fantasia will be cleared of any charges as North Carolina happens to be one of few states that prosecute mistresses if proven that they were involved in an affair. Maybe this is a sign that things will start to look up for Fantasia in 2001.

Ludacris is a High Roller at Christmas Party

Ludacris just raked in a ridiculous amount of money just to perform at an exclusive Christmas party for some millionaire. In fact, the rapper’s contract was worth nearly $100,000 and he wasn’t even the only celebrity there. A rep for millionaire entrepreneur Jason Hope said that Ludacris was paid to perform a 45-minute set for partygoers at Jason’s pad in Arizona. Snooki, Stephanie Pratt, Lo Bosworth and a bunch of other reality stars got money to show up to but it was Ludacris who pulled bank the most. Altogether, Jason dropped nearly $200,000 to get the famous people to attend and ran nearly a $500,000 tab for the whole party.
