Joe Jackson recently admitted in an interview that Michael Jackson’s young protégé/rumored son, Omer Bhatti, is in fact a member of the Jackson family. Rumors went around that Omer was the secret lovechild of the late King of Pop, but sources firmly denied it. However, Joe admits that Omer “looks like a Jackson, acts like a Jackson” and of course, the boy can dance like a Jackson. I think that he’s just doing this to get more air time. But if it is true, I just have one thing to say – run Omer! Hurry before Joe gets his hands on you and recruits you into the new Jackson 5.

Flo Rida has a new music video out for his song ‘Sugar’. The song features R&B singer Wynter Gordon and is the third single from the rapper’s sophomore album ‘R.O.O.T.S.’ The song’s chorus samples from Eiffel 65’s dance pop song ‘Blue (Da Ba Dee)’. The video shows a female doctor putting Flo Rida to sleep, causing him to fantasize about a girl he likes. It’s obviously not the most interesting of video concepts but I have to admit that the song is still fire! Flo Rida’s the kind of rapper who you label as a joke or a one hit wonder at first but then suddenly grows on you even though you think he still has his stupid moments.
Madonna and Justin Timberlake’s collaboration ‘4 Minutes to Save the World’ has leaked and is making the rounds all over the internet. And as people say, don’t believe the hype. I’m disappointed really. You can barely hear Madonna singing because the song is all about the beats and it overpowers the whole thing. The melody is completely sacrificed and I can’t even determine where the chorus is. And those darn horns repeating on a loop – it’s so annoying! The song sounds more like something from one of Gwen Stefani’s solo albums. It’s ironic because Gwen has been vocal about how she’s been inspired mostly by Madonna. Sorry Madonna, not even golden boy Justin could give you a hit. I’m just not digging the song. Maybe it will grow on me.
Celine Dion snuggles up to manager husband Rene Angelil at the 2008 NRJ Music Awards held at the Palais des Festivals on Saturday in Cannes, France. Earlier in the day, the Canadian singer was seen arriving at an airport in Nice on her way to the awards show.
Celine is about to have her first concert in China on April 13 and it will be party of Beijing’s official celebration of the Olympic Games. The singer also submitted an entry for the Beijing Olympics theme song competition and I think she’s a shoe-in. She did sing the theme song for the opening ceremony of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
Madonna was spotted wearing a pair of Ed Hardy sweatpants on Monday as she exited the Claridges Hotel in London. It must be hard earning all that money going in her pockets that she has to keep in shape.
The Queen of Pop has recently teamed up with hair care brand Sunsilk in hopes to inspire women around the world to take the leap up off of their couches and live life to the fullest with the debut of a massive ‘Life Can’t Wait’ campaign. The campaign will debut during the broadcast of Super Bowl XLII on February 3 and will feature such iconic stars like Madonna, Shakira and Marilyn Monroe.
Robbie Williams recently revealed in his blog that he has lots of new songs in the bag, despite no plans to release them at this time.
I can reveal the best of it is written with Jankel who was behind the 1978 smash hit Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick along with Ian Dury. I’ve heard it’s some of Robbie’s best ever stuff – which makes it even more frustrating for fans he is in no rush to release it.
Last year Robbie returned to the studio with ‘Angels’ co-writer Guy Chambers. But that hasn’t worked out and it’s Jankel’s work that will form the basis of Robbie’s comeback – whenever that may be.
A source revealed: “Robbie and Chaz have been working on some great stuff. “It’s back to Robbie’s funky best. Out of all of his new tunes, the Chaz stuff is the best. Currently his problem is that he has lots of different music that he’s worked with different people on. It all sounds very different so it doesn’t really sit very well as an album. “
The queen of fierce, Janet Jackson, is featured in the January 2008 issue of luxury lifestyle magazine Prestige Hong Kong. In the accompanying interview, the diva was asked about her family and her New Year resolutions for 2008.
She says that she wants to stop cursing as much and to become more environmentally friendly. “I’ve already started with my little energy-saving light bulbs; I’ve been testing them out. And I was thinking about getting a hybrid but I love these big cars, I love trucks and stuff. I’m awful. Slowly but surely I’m getting there, slowly but surely so that it’s not too drastic.”
If the new promo picture that came out is any indication of the vibe that Janet Jackson’s new album is going to have, then that stuff is going to be shooting through the roof! Hot! Hot! Hot!
The lead single off of the album ‘Feedback’ is already getting massive airplay which has excited even more people about Janet’s comeback. And for those wondering just when we’ll get it, her new album ‘Discipline’ now has an official release date for February 26th. I can’t wait! I really hope that she would do a tour for this one. She needs to really go out there again.
Celine Dion was photographer with her 6 ½-year old son Rene as she waved goodbye during the final run of her Las Vegas show ‘A New Day’ at The Colosseum at the Caesars Palace on Saturday night.
Since the show opened in March 2003, nearly 3 million people have watched the 39-year old songstress perform 717 live shows. Gross ticket sales have totaled a cool $400 million. For those that missed the show, you can still catch it on the newly released five-hour double DVD ‘Celine Dion: A New Day – Live in Las Vegas’.
Celine will be kicking off the North American leg of her concert tour next month.
At her sold out Wembley gig last night, Rihanna proved she can hold her own against any of the strong female legends of pop as she rocked the stage in some very hot outfits.
The performance certainly drove away any ‘teen-pop’ image she may have been carrying. With awesome stage presence, powerhouse vocals and moves that would have Beyonce shaking in her boots; the fans went nuts.
I doubt the many changes of PVC bondage outfits harmed the effect either.
