Rihanna Breaks Her Silence.


Rihanna is set to break her silence next week on ABC's Good Morning America's Thursday morning show airing at 7am, followed by an exclusive 20/20 interview on Friday at 9pm est. I think this is the moment, not only her fans, but the world has been waiting for. I wonder how the Nielsen ratings for these shows will look...more than likely outrageous!

Rock & Rebirth.

PhotobucketCover: Lil Wayne on the Nov 7th issue of Billboard

Given earlier leaks from the project, did you make many changes to the final version?
As of now Rebirth is coming out as a double disc with a [disc of songs] by Young Money. I had to add new cuts because a lot of things leaked, making people think they had an idea of what I was doing with Rebirth and what it would sound like. And I hated that because I never want anybody to think they know what I¹m doing until I present it. So what I did was make it totally different I flipped it.

Does the album still lean toward rock?
Yes, the album is still rock. I play guitar on 80% of the songs and there’s a lot of rock influences and rock beats. I also have Travis Barker on the album. But I don’t want people to think I’m trying to do something I can’t do. Don’t think you’re going to put on the album and hear me screaming and singing . . . Don’t worry about that [laughs]. When people hear me say rock, they may get a little scared like, Oh, God. What is he going to do? When I said I was doing a rock album, it was about doing a freedom thing. This album isn’t hip-hop. When I do my Carter albums, I know I’ve got to rap, I know I’ve got to spit. I know the words I’ve got to say and the subjects I’ve got to talk about. I also know the things I shouldn’t say, the things I shouldn’t talk about. There’s none of those limits on this album. I say what I want, how I want. That’s what this album is: a freedom album. And rock is the avenue that gives you that freedom. I’m just having fun, that’s all. Trust me: People will like these songs. It’s my job to make them love them, but I know for a fact they’ll like them.

Diamond and Pearls.


Diamond (1/2 of Crime Mob) shot the video for her brand new single “Superbad” featuring Cee-Lo-- Though he didn't appear in the video, Tiny, Toya, Rasheeda, Lil' Scrappy, and a few more of Diamond's industry friends came out to Opera nightclub and showed her some of that "ATL" love. Check out a lil bit of what I captured while there:

ThrowBack Thursday:

"Garfield & Friends"
Synopsis: "The star of the series is Garfield, a lazy feline whose only desires in life were lasagna, catnaps and kicking his hapless canine companion, Odie, off the table. The show also starred Garfield's hopelessly-single owner, Jon Arbuckle. Each episode is divided into stories about either Garfield and Odie, or Orson the Pig and the trouble they get into. "

-Garfield would come on every morning as i was getting dressed for school. It was always crazy to me how they'd divided the show into 2 completely different cartoons that had absolutely nothing to do with eachother. Randomly my favorite character was always Sheldon the egg. Don't act like you don't remember,

Executive Suite.

Mogul Round table: Lyor Cohen, Russell Simmons & Kevin Liles

I could talk about Lyor better than he can. He’s so nice, he might not say it. He was so in love with the music and worked so hard for the artists. He made a lot of money with Run-DMC and then lost all his money on Whodini. He came from a wealthy family but stayed in a raggedy hotel room… He worked for no money for a long time. He was Andre [Harrell’s] secretary. Andre shit on him. -- Simmons on Lyor Cohen

The Next Halle Berry?

Robin Thicke
's (now expecting) wife actress Paula Patton is gracing the current issue of GIANT magazine. Discussing her career, upbringing, and marriage, Paula also does a (imo) clever name drop, tagging herself the 'next Halle Berry'. This was always my secret thought when i saw her in films years ago, but im usually not a fan of folks tooting their own horns. Either way what do you think? The way i see it, she'd reap greater benefits spending her time becoming "the next" Paula Patton! Pow! (I'm jussayin....)


Homeward Bound:

Here's a quick shot of Shyne, who was accompanied by 5 immigration officials being deported back to his native Belize. But did anyone else know that he was the Prime Minister's son? So basically he gets to go home and live a lavish life filled with prince/first son status. Hmmm...there goes my empathy?

Age Aint Nothin But A Number:

Forever iLOVE Toni Braxton! How great does she look in these shots from her new video "Yesterday"? 40 something & 2 kids later never looked so good! Check for "Yesterday's premiere sometime next month & her new album "Pulse" in stores early 2010!

A Few Coins Short Of A Dollar...

PressPlay: 50 Cent Feat. Eminem - Pyscho


Why Wednesday

1. Why Did Monica's "Still Standing" feel like another season of Keyshia Cole's "The Way it Is" sans Frankie & Neffee?

2. Why did the most hated female rapper in the game lyrically destroy every male MC in the cypher during last nights BET Hip-Hop Awards?

3. Why is Jamie Foxx outing Plies as a "bonified Becky" during a run in with some real goons at a recent video shoot? Where's THIS beef coming from?

4. Why are we already dreading hearing Chris Brown's "I Can Transform Ya" in over-saturated rotation?

5. Speaking of... Why is Rihanna's "Russian Roulette" already the #1 song on growing nationwide pop radio?

6. Why can't we wait to go see Michael Jackson's "This Is It" which hits theaters today?

7. Why during an outing this week, did Beyonce & Jay Z spend $1200 on lunch? Word is that they left a $500 tip though. Cheers!!

8. Why was everyone kinda disappointed by the cover choice for Rihanna's "Rated R" album? Doesn't it just look like an outtake from her Italian Vogue spread from a couple months ago?

9. Why are we all just a little uneasy with this H1N1 Vaccine? Doesn't it seem like they don't have all the 'bugs' worked out just yet?

10. Why do we feel like we could've totally done without the new H-Town featuring Jodeci "Knocking Your Heels" record & video?

Can You Feel It?

PressPlay: Jackson A&E Reality Show Trailer

The Jacksons are letting the cameras in their personal lives for the first time as they embark on a new reality show, The Jacksons. The A&E series will follow the remaining memebers as they head back into the studio to record a new album. Are they even a group without Michael, let alone, a show? I wonder if Janet will be making appearances!? Something needs to keep my attention!

I wish them the best of luck, nonetheless...I just hope this show isn't as disappointing as their 1989 album, 2300 Jackson Street, which was recorded without Michael and Marlon.
