US First Lady Michelle Obama recently answered a Twitter question in which she talked about listening to music while exercising for the Let’s Move campaign. Michelle said in regards to what songs are on her iPod “I always love Beyonce, so anything that’s fast-paced that she’s doing is a good one for me. I have very eclectic taste, so my playlist on my iPod runs from fast-paced to a little more mellow.” I wonder if the first lady ever tries to do some of Beyonce’s choreography. Maybe I should tweet her that. What do you think? She looks like she can get her groove on.Read More

Drake took to his Twitter account this past weekend to announce that he was releasing some free music for his fans that day. The Canadian singer/rapper dropped three new tracks called “Club Paradise”, which was produced by Noah “40” Shebib; “Free Spirit”, which features Rick Ross; and “Round of Applause”, a remix to a Waka Flocka original. Personally, “Club Paradise” is my favorite. Word has it that none of these tracks will be on Drake’s upcoming album “Take Care”, due out on October 24th. But if you like them, you can head over to his OVO blog at octobersveryown.blogspot.com to download them.

Rumors surfaced earlier this week that Hustler had acquired a sex tape featuring J Cole and Rihanna. It didn’t take long for the Barbadian R&B singer to deny the whole thing, taking to Twitter to say “We don’t believe U, U need more people…AND ofcourse an actual sextape! #slownewsday” At least she’s got a good sense of humor about the whole thing. She’s right though. Unless Hustler comes up with some proof that they do have a sex tape, it’s nothing but silly rumors spreading to have the media go crazy. What do you think? Do you think a Rihanna and J Cole sex tape exists?Read More
Selena Gomez will be hosting this year’s VMA pre-show. During which, Nicki Minaj will show the world a special preview of the music video for “Fly”, her collaboration with Rihanna. In January, we got to see a teaser picture of the video shoot via the Barbadian R&B singer’s Twitter but it was the rapper’s “Super Bass” visual that ended up being dropped first. Now, it seems that “Fly” is coming right up. I’m sure the first look into the video will only add to the big night that Nicki will have as she’s nominated for three VMAs including Best Rap Video.Read More
The Weeknd has a new song out called “The Zone”. The track, which features Canadian rapper/singer Drake, comes off of the R&B singer’s latest mix tape called “Thursday”. If you’re unaware, The Weeknd is the stage name of Toronto-based artist Abel Tesfaye. Drake has always been a big supporter of The Weeknd ever since hearing his music, even before coming into the scene in March 2011. It’s actually publicity created by Drake via Twitter that pushed The Weeknd’s initial popularity. As for the song, it has a chilling vibe that’s heightened more with The Weeknd’s vocals. The verse by Drake was a nice addition to the song. I like it but I understand that it may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Big Boi was recently put under arrest for drug possession but it seems that he’s not really phased by it. When the Outkast rapper was released after being thrown behind bars for three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, he took to his Twitter to alert his followers that he was free. He jokingly tweeted “Fresh Out Baby! Sh*t they said it was the Love Boat.” I get that he may think that he’s invincible but maybe Big Boi should learn how to be a bit sensible. He did just get arrested on some pretty serious counts. Let’s take this a bit more seriously.Read More

Thanks to @kanyewest 4 cmng out & shutting it DOWN!” I am jealous of everyone who got to see this go down live.

Rumors are running wild about Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley ever since the R&B singer gave birth to her sixth child. Word is that Rohan abandoned Lauryn while she was pregnant. However, Lauryn wants to set the record straight and has done so via her rep’s Twitter account. She posted “Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning. To speculate without the facts can only cause people to form WRONG conclusions. We both value privacy and for that reason defend and preserve our right to it. Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child. We have had long periods of separation over the years but our 5 children together remain a joy to both of us...Read More
