Rihanna - The Wait Is Ova

The second single of Rihanna called "Wait Your Turn (The Wait Is Ova) leaked today.

LISTEN HERE

I think the part with "The Wait Is Ova" is very hot but I'm not sure about the song in its entirety. Maybe it's a grower.

Sugababes 4.0 Pushes Album Back!

Seriously this era is a mess from the beginning. After going with a sound that I am not quite feeling and kicking out their best member, Keisha, the Sugababes decided to push their album Sweet 7 back to (Attention!) February 22nd! It was originally scheduled to be released November.

Source

That is totally funny to me and honestly I'm not sad about it because I won't check for them, no matter when they release.

I rather sit here and wait for Keisha to bring a solo album. Although I have to admit that I hardly see her being a smash I hope for a decent album whenever the time is right.

Shakira, Nelly Furtado, Norah Jones Support Illegal Downloaders



SHAKIRA'S SUPPORT FOR ILLEGAL DOWNLOADERS

SHAKIRA has waded into an ongoing U.K. debate over illegal downloads - insisting the controversial practice brings her "closer to her fans".

Lily Allen spearheaded a campaign last month (Sep09) to stop illicit file-sharing and called on the British government to help beat illegal downloaders, who she fears will destroy the music industry.

Sir Elton John, Annie Lennox and George Michael backed her protest - but the Whenever, Wherever hitmaker, who has sold millions of records worldwide, is sympathetic to illegal downloaders.

Shakira tells Sky News, "I like what's going on because I feel closer to the fans and the people who appreciate the music. It's the democratisation of music in a way, and music is a gift. That's what it should be, a gift."

Allen is adamant the practice means artists just starting out in the music business will struggle - but singer Nelly Furtado has also joined the debate, insisting losing sales is irrelevant to success.

She adds, "If you love music you're going to make it anyway. You'll find an audience, and you may not make like millions of dollars but you'll make enough to have a house and a family and a car."

Justin Timberlake Performs In Vegas



“There were a lot of acts this year that weren’t able to get here till today, so there weren’t as many collabs as I had in my brain,” Timberlake told MTV News during rehearsals. “But I think that’s always the case, it’s kind of like [when] you do an album and you write, like, 40 songs, and then 12 of them make it. … But still, just having everyone out and getting to see them do their set — there are a couple of things that have never been performed onstage. There’s a new song from [Timbaland] tonight, from his record that we did together. I think Snoop’s doing a new song from his new record. So it’s kinda cool for them too, because it’s like perfect test marketing.”

Beyoncé Featuring Lady GaGa???

That's what StuffFlyPeopleLike reports:


[Allegedly] Beyonce and Lady Gaga were spotted on the set of Bey’s Video shoot for Video Phone in Brooklyn Friday Night.

I can’t even keep count of how many singles Bey has dropped from I am… Sasha Fierce, But I applaud her.

Sources say Lady Gaga is included on the remix for Video Phone and makes an appearance in the video.

An unlikely couple, that makes perfect sense.

I must admit, I’m quite anxious to see the results.

What’s your verdict?


It would be somehow hot because both are the hottest female singers right now but I doubt this is true because frankly I can't see (or hear) their voices match. But they can prove me wrong if they like.

Do you believe it?

Beyoncé To Re-release "I Am...Sasha Fierce"


Yep, you heard that right. Amazon.com offers the "I Am...Sasha Fierce Deluxe Edition" which will be out November 10.

3. Disappear
4. Broken-Hearted Girl
5. Ave Maria

10. Radio
11. Diva
12. Sweet Dreams
13. Video Phone
14. Hello
15. Ego
16. Scared Of Lonely
17. Poison


As much as I love Beyoncé this version doesn't make much sense. "Poison" is the only new song and it even leaked some time ago so that there are no surprises left.
Furthermore I'm of the opinion that the cover works much better in black and white.

Overall this is just a very underwhelming offer. I hope this is wrong and they will release something else.

Review: Shakira's New Album "She Wolf"



Shakira is back with her new album called “She Wolf” which is also her third English record. Her last album “Oral Fixation” was released in 2005. Obviously it was about time for her to release a new album.
So Shakira announced she would go for a more electronic/pop sound - and she didn’t lie.

She Wolf
The first single and the song that gave the album its title is just a catchy track where especially the violins are significant.

Did It Again
The first track produced by Pharrell and it’s hot. Again a violin sound with the great beat that goes hard. Additionally, Shakira’s “Oh’s” and “Eh’s” make it sexy.

Long Time
Again produced by Pharrell and he did an amazing job with the instrumental once again. However, the song is not a highlight.

Why Wait
One of my favorite songs off the album. Pharrell and Shakira were able to create a banging beat with oriental sounds. I love the combination, it’s just hot.

Good Stuff
The beginning is just amazing. The beat starts, stops then and Shakira moans while the beat pauses. The chorus is catchy [I’m not gonna miss out on the good stuff/The grass is much greener with us on it]. This track is also produced by The Neptunes.

Men In This Town
Shakira is basically looking for a guy in L.A. The song is great too. Especially the parts when she goes: I’m so fresh, I’m so fresh/Got the lips and got the skin/Got the skin, got the thing/I’m so fresh and I’m so…]

Gypsy
Yet another beautiful song. [Walking gets too boring when you learn how to fly (…)Cause I’m gypsy are you coming with me?/I might steal your clothes and wear them if they fit me]. The song was written by Amanda Ghost.

Spy
It features Wyclef Jean and like “Hips Don’t Lie” the song is hot too. “The Columbian with a swagger” and Wyclef really have some kind of chemistry that works perfectly.

Mon Amour
I’m really not sure what to think about this song. It’s the only song that is heavily rock influenced. So I’m not quite sure if it makes much sense to put such a song on a pop album. Maybe she just wanted to please her fans who prefer her doing rock music. The song isn’t bad, I like the airport references but like I said it would have been better on Oral Fixation. To sum it up: It's my least favorite track.

Lo Hecho Está Hecho, Anos Luz & Loba
…are the Spanish versions of “Did It Again”, “Why Wait” and “She Wolf” so there is really no need to discuss them again. But as always, Shakira sounds a little more comfortable when singing in her mother tongue.

What can I say but fantastic album!? I fell in love with it with my very first listen. I still believe “Laundry Service” is slightly better but “She Wolf” comes very close.

When I heard about the collaboration between The Neptunes and Shakira I really couldn’t convincely say that this will work out well but thankfully now I can. You can tell Shakira is always involved in the whole production progress and that’s something I think is pretty important and makes the album to sound well. I also think there is no other artist who can combine so many different sounds so well. Props to her.

Concerning her vocals I guess it’s a love or hate thing. She definitely has a unique voice but I like her voice and to me she sounds fine as always.

The only real criticism I have is the length. An album with technically only 9 songs is not cool at all.

The album is already released or will be released next week in most countries. The USA will have to wait until Novemeber to get the chance buy it. I don't understand they want to achieve with this strategy but oh well.

Are you gonna buy it?

Soulja Boy Arrested in Georgia

Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy has been arrested in Henry County following an incident at a video shoot.
The arrest happened on Wednesday (October 7) at 9PM, when officers responded to a call that there were upwards of 40 people mingling at an abandoned house in Stockbridge, GA.

“There were approximately 40 people gathered behind the dark house," Sergeant Rene Swanson detailed in her police report. "Half of the people fled the area as the arriving officer called for back-up.”


Soulja Boy (DeAndre Way) was one of the alleged individuals to flee the scene. In a search of the left behind vehicles, police found a 9MM handgun in the glove compartment of a white Lexus.


Although authorities have not given specifics, police stated the weapon was tied to Soulja Boy.

Upon his return, the rapper gave a statement explaining that his entourage was gathered at the home for a video shoot. Because of the gun, he was still arrested on obstruction charges.


“A white Land Rover at the scene was identified as belonging to Way, who had fled the scene," Swanson stated. "He returned a short time later, and [was] arrested for obstruction."

A second man, Latice Wayne Grier, was arrested on second degree forgery charges when a search of his Dodge Charger yielded eight counterfeit $100 bills.


Soulja Boy was released yesterday (October 8) on a $550 bond, and will answer his misdemeanor charge in State Court. Due to the more serious forgery charge, Grier posted a $10,050 bond and will respond to his case in Superior Court.


At press time, Soulja boy could not be reached for comment.

I know most of you are probably Soulja Boy HATERS, so you might enjoy this post! So have a read, but I LOL @ this I reckon Soulja Boy should have drove away in his car instead of just dashing for it.

Usher Vs Tameka: It's getting dirty

Article 1:
Law enforcement sources tell us when officers arrived at the scene, Tameka Raymond was nowhere to be found.

Police later interviewed both Tameka and Usher -- but determined there was no evidence or witnesses to substantiate Usher's claim.

But the drama didn't end there -- law enforcement sources tell us Usher called the cops on Tameka a second time several days later, complaining that Tameka again got onto his property and wouldn't leave. By the time cops arrived, Tameka had already split.

Usher filed for divorce back in June ... but it hasn't been finalized just yet.

UPDATE: TMZ just received the following statement from Tameka's rep:

"This is just another attempt to disparage Tameka. It's simply an angry ploy that has no merit.

Tameka's own truck was scratched but it's not clear how. The truck is registered in her name, it's not even Usher's car. Why would she vandalize her own vehicle?"



Article 2:
Usher told cops his soon-to-be ex wife Tameka Raymond vandalized his truck after a "custody dispute" they had the night before -- this according to the police reports obtained by TMZ.
According to the reports, Usher told the Johns Creek Police Department that on Sept. 10, he had a "verbal argument" with Tameka over the phone regarding weekend custody of their children.

Usher told cops that after the argument, he dropped his kids off at his mother's house -- but when he drove back to his home, Tameka showed up "demanding to take the kids." Usher claims Tameka eventually left and he drove back to his mother's house -- but when Usher got there, Tameka showed up and began "knocking on the door" and making several phone calls to the residence.

Usher claims he and his mom ignored Tameka -- and eventually called police. When cops arrived, Tameka was nowhere to be found.

The next day, Usher called police again after he noticed several scratches on his truck -- Usher told cops he believed Tameka vandalized the car in retaliation for their fight just hours before.

In the police report, the responding officers who checked out the scratched car claim they found no evidence to support Usher's accusation. The cops even reviewed the entrance log to Usher's private neighborhood ... but there was no record of Tameka ever getting into the area where the alleged crime would have taken place.

Source 1
Source 2

That's some weird shit. I'm at a point where I can see Usher using every chance to be in talks and making Tameka looking bad. He tries hard to not flop with his upcoming album which will be about his divorce.

I've never been a fan of Tameka but Usher gets more shady with every day.

The new version will be released on November 24, 2009.

Says Lady Gaga, "On my re-release The Fame Monster, I wrote about everything I didn't write on The Fame. While traveling the world for two years, I've encountered several monsters, each represented by a different song on the new record: my 'Fear of Sex Monster,' my 'Fear of Alcohol Monster,' my 'Fear of Love Monster,' my 'Fear of Death Monster,' my 'Fear of Loneliness Monster,' etc."
"I spent a lot of nights in Eastern Europe, and this album is a pop experimentation with industrial/Goth beats, 90's dance melodies, an obsession with the lyrical genius of 80's melancholic pop, and the runway. I wrote while watching muted fashion shows and I am compelled to say my music was scored for them. I also composed a ballad for the album, 'Speechless,' a song for my father, and it's my favorite work of all. I wrote every piece on the road - no songs about money, no songs about fame. I wrote it for my fans, so I wrote everything in between."

The first club-banging single, the RedOne-produced "Bad Romance," will be released in early November. Other collaborators on the new tracks include Teddy Riley, Rodney Jerkins, Ron Fair and Fernando Garibay.

Lady Gaga is also in the process of planning her next tour after her co-headlining tour with Kanye West was canceled last week.

"Memoirs" to debut on #3

Mariah Carey's new album sold 172k units and will hit the third spot on the album charts.

The group Paramore owned the battle selling 185k. The second place went to Barbara Streisand.

This is definitely a disappointment for Mariah. Especially since the album is great. You can only blame the lack of promotion.

Mariah Carey To Release a Remix Album, H.A.T.E.U. 2nd Single

Mariah Carey Enlists Trey Songz for Remix Album

Fans who picked up Mariah Carey’s latest Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel most likely noticed the absence of features, but the singer is about to make up for it. Tricky Stewart and Trey Songz spill details exclusively to Rap-Up.com on Carey’s top-secret remix album.

Details are slowly emerging about the project, which will include remixes to every song on Memoirs. “There’s gonna be remixes to everything,” says Tricky. “I’m actually doing some remixing myself currently ’cause some of these records were so much fun to make. It’s easy to go in and do a remix.”

The mega-producer already has something in mind for the diva’s Foreigner cover. “I’m gonna do a remix to ‘I Want to Know What Love Is’ myself. I’mma raise the tempo up. I’mma try to make it into something else.”

He may even add a guest to it. “Once I get the beat and if it calls for the right person, I can get anybody on the phone I want to right now, so I will be using my Rolodex for that.”

One of the featured artists on the new project will be Trey Songz, who exclusively discloses to Rap-Up.com that he recorded a remix to one of Memoirs’ cuts last month. “Mariah Carey, I believe she’s doing a remix album and I’m on a record entitled ‘Inseparable,’” he shares.

Trey put everything aside once he got the call. “I actually only had a day to do it. I did it on my day off. [They were] very professional, very adamant on wanting to get it done. They made sure we had all we needed. I just went in and got it done.”

It better won't be some stupid remixes aka let a random rapper get his part or some club mix. If she re-records her vocals and make them sound different then it could be pretty hot.

Besides, Mariah's second single will be "H.A.T.E.U.". The choice is not surprising to me at all.

Nelly Furtado Interview and Performance of "Mas"

Prince Harry: The Movie

Prince William may have been born for the throne, but his younger brother is bound for Hollywood. At least, his story is.
Prince Harry's fascinating life has attracted the interest of filmmaker Peter Kosminsky, who plans to make a film about the younger, wilder royal, called The Spare.
Kosminsky says he was drawn to the 25-year-old's story because he feels "a sense of compassion for the guy".

"His parents break up in the most spectacularly public way," says the director."His mother dies in the most tragic, and public way. He's a man born to no role, the heir and the spare.
"Then Harry joins the Army and for 77 days sees action in Afghanistan — and finds, possibly for the first and only time in his life, a role.
"Suddenly, he finds himself alongside ordinary guys. …For the first time in his life he doesn't feel like a spare part. But then that's snatched away and, fearing for his safety, the Army top brass send Harry home."

It's unknown who will be cast as the charismatic, ginger-haired prince, but Twilight star and teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson is said to be high on the list of potentials, as is Harry Potter star Rupert Grint.

When I first heard about this I was like HOLY F**K in a bad way, among this review I reckon it will be a crap movie and I know for sure I wont be watching this. Anyone know who will? But among the crap film list I will name this,Cedar Boys,Facebook Movie and Glee

T-Boz had a Brain Tumor for 3 Years and Survived

T-Boz says she battled her tumor secretly because she didn’t want any pity from people who could be helping or paying attention to other people with bigger issues. She even failed to talk about her brain tumor while participating on Celebrity Apprentice which we’re sure would have earned her major pity votes, but that’s besides the point.

Beyoncé Got Alexandra Burke A Record Deal In America

‘In America I’m signed to Epic Records. It’s a five-album deal [worth £3.5 million] and it happened straight after the show. It all happened because of Beyoncé. She rang up her people – her A&Rs who are now my A&Rs – and she was like, “You need to watch this girl.” They then watched the show, flew over to see me on the last date of The X Factor tour at Wembley, and that was it.They signed me and I was in complete and utter shock.’
That was in March, barely three months after she was facing off against boy band
JLS in the TV final.
‘Every time I see Beyoncé I say thank you for changing my life completely. She kept in touch, she came to see me in New York, she invited me to her show when she was here. She’s just a real sweetheart.’

That's really nice, although I'm not totally convinced about Alexandra.

Beyoncé: I'd like to do a film loosely based on my father's childhood

What do you do to maintain your tour stamina? I heard a rumor that you run on a treadmill in heels and sing.


[Laughs heartily] No, I don't run on a treadmill in heels. That's a bit extreme. But I do practice my choreography in heels. And I have a rule that when I have my heels on, everyone has to have their heels on too. Sometimes the dancers are like, "Oh, God, we hope Beyoncé comes in late," because I'll go all day. And in the end, I'll have blisters and my toes will have bruises. It's really hard sometimes. I still do all the boring things that everyone else does in regular workouts like squats and the treadmill. But I mainly get in shape from doing the choreography during those long 12-hour rehearsals for two months before a tour.
What else is on your to-do list?


I'm interested in a lot of different things. I'd like to get involved in videogames since I really love Wii Fit. I think it would be a great idea to incorporate choreography because for me my workout is way more fun when it involves dancing as opposed to running on a boring treadmill. So I would love to do some kind of fitness game but incorporate dance and performance into it. I think a lot of women would enjoy that.


I also want to continue to produce films -- even if I'm not in them -- as well as a documentary on my life. Actually, I'd like to do a film loosely based on my father's [Mathew Knowles] childhoodand school years. He's had an interesting life. But that will probably be in a couple of years.



Is there a chance you'll start your own label?



Yes, eventually, when I have time. I'm doing so many things, I have to slow down a bit so I can focus. [laughs]


Have you thought about taking a longer break after this tour?

I think after maybe a month or two months, I'd be really bored. But I don't see myself working this hard for the rest of my life. It's just too much to do forever. I thank God I started touring and building a fan base when I was really young. So now if I took off a couple of years, I think I'd still be able to come back, go on tour and do records. I'm still a young woman.

Ehh. If she ever does that Mathew movie I'll go on strike.

Mariah: Nick is going to slap him if he ever sees him.

The British Guardian interviewed Mariah Carey. Pretty interesting interview.

Carey seems genuinely irritated. "He wrote a song about me and my husband, and in a really derogatory and juvenile way. And it's not up to par with his other songs." Carey's single, Obsessed, the first release from the new album, is about a sad little man who throws hip-hop shapes in his bedroom and follows her around, peering out from beneath his hoodie. "I never said it was about him. If he sees himself in that song…" But in any case, she says, "I'm not a fan. There's no connection there. I knew him, kind of vaguely, eight years ago, on a purely platonic level, and then he wasn't my friend any more and I was like, OK, whatever. And this was eight years ago and he's just writing this song. For no reason. No reason."

She says her husband is still saying "he is going to slap him if he ever sees him. He boxes." She laughs. "See, the difference is, my song is on the radio and his, you have to search for it." Ouch.

[..]

"I try not to be a jerk. I really do. I try to be nice and cordial. I've seen the real extreme diva behaviour and I don't think that's who I am. I think I have mannerisms and that whole thing, and I'm running around in these shoes. But even before I had any type of fame, I was like this." She laughs. "Seriously."

And so finally, then, to the question of dressing rooms and rumours that have been around for ever. Has she ever asked for kittens or puppies as accessories backstage? "No. In a video maybe." Bowls of blue M&Ms? "I don't even eat them." And the carpet thing? "Yeah. They said I wouldn't come into a hotel unless there were petals on the floor. I'm like, do you really think at 3am I give a shit what I'm walking on?"


So LMFAO @ "He boxes".
But by here last statement she somewhat compares Em's diss track to Obsessed.
