"All About You"-Chris Brown (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Chris Brown released a video for his song "All About You," which was actually a hidden track off of his fourth album F.A.M.E. when you pre-ordered the album. It's a funky little song complete with acoustic guitar. It's not one of Chris' mainstream videos, just something that I can tell he did just because. Thought I'd share for the rest of #TeamBreezy ;)

Kim Kardashian's Wedding Invite!

E! Online got the official invitation for Miss Kim Kardashian and her fiance Kris Humphries' wedding! Very fancy. The invite reads, "Kris and Bruce Jenner request the pleasure of your company at the marriage of their daughter Kimberly Kardashian to Kristopher Humphries." The wedding invitation package also came with three glossy white-and-black cards which included more details on the wedding (how to RSVP, where and when to arrive for the ceremony, a request to keep all information "confidential" and suggestions for local hotels), a parking pass and notice that a reception and dinner will follow the ceremony.

The star-studded black tie event will take place on August 20 in Montecito, California at an unknown venue. Can't wait to see those wedding pics!

ALBUM REVIEW: Here I Am-Kelly Rowland

I decided to go ahead and do a review on Miss Kelly's third album, Here I Am, which was released today, since I did my review of Beyoncé's album some weeks back (I think I'm going to start doing more reviews. A lot of work, but I like it).

I'm doing this review WITH NO COMPARISON TO B! I thought about it, but that's overdone. And I'm sure other reviews have done/will do it. Kelly has made a name for herself in this industry long before this album came out. So I just wanted to give my perspective on this album based on Kelly's vocals and production of this album.

I listened to this entire album on YouTube. The album was put on Kelly's website a while ago. I didn't bother to listen to it then and, of course, she took it down for the release. I told myself I would listen to it, get a feel for it, and decide from there whether or not I would actually buy and add it to my iTunes library. I could've downloaded this album a while ago I'm sure, but if it was worth my money, Kelly would get it. Check out my review after the jump!


Leighton Meester Sues Mom Over Misused Funds

According to PEOPLE, Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester is suing her mom Constance for misuse of Leighton's money. The actress was giving Constance money to care for her brother Lex who is dealing with medical problems.

The lawsuit alleges that Constance used the $7,500 a month that Leighton had given her on cosmetic procedures and other personal expenses instead of on Leighton's brother.

A source told PEOPLE., "This whole thing's been really tough on Leighton. Her only concern has always been taking care of her brother. Leighton's really close with her brother and her dad – her parents are divorced. Leighton's a sweet girl – she cares about work, friends and family."

Even though it hasn't been officially proven in court yet, I could see it. Leighton claims Constance threatened to sue her for $3 million if she didn't raise the monthly allowance to $10,000. Uh huh. Sometimes money changes people. Other times it changes the people around you. People see others they know making it, and figure that they should be making it too. And that's not the case. Not saying that a famous person making money shouldn't give back to their family, community, etc. I definitely would if I had the funds. However, you aren't about to be mooching off of me, using my money for things that we haven't discussed, getting Botox or whatever this lady was doing. That's a NO. I hope that Leighton gets this all resolved, and gets her money.

Kelly Rowland To Star in Stephen King's Bag of Bones

Can't even lie. Kelly Rowland is KILLING right now. "Motivation" is still doing well, she's judging the X-Factor over in England, and now she is set to star in a mini series. Bag of Bones, from author Stephen King, is said to feature Kelly along with Pierce Brosnan and Annabeth Gish. The two part, 4-hour mini series will start production in August and will premiere later this year on A&E.

The official synopsis (via SingersRoom): Bag of Bones is the story of grief and lost love's enduring bonds, an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire and a new love haunted by past secrets. Bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, played by Pierce Brosnan, is unable to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife Jo. A dream inspires him to return to the couple's lakeside retreat in western Maine where he becomes involved in a custody battle between the daughter of an attractive young widow and the child's enormously wealthy grandfather, the mysterious ghostly visitations, the ever-escalating nightmares and the realization that his late wife still has something to tell him.

Intriguing. I might sit down and watch when it comes out. Definitely want to see Kelly in this. Plus, even though Pierce Brosnan is getting up in age, he's still hot to me! Speaking of hot, check out some sexy pictures Miss Kelly took in a photoshoot with Derek Blanks after the jump! Stunning!

Lauryn Hill Gives Birth to a Boy!

According to BlackCelebKids.com, legend Lauryn Hill has given birth to her sixth child, a boy, this past Saturday! A source told the website, “Mother and baby are fine." The source added that Lauryn and her family “had a little scare because the baby came out the womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. All is well now and everyone is happy.”

Contrary to other reports, this child is not the son of Lauryn's longtime boyfriend Rohan Marley. Rohan recently came under fire for allegedly dumping Lauryn during her pregnancy for Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana. He has dismissed the rumors saying, “Ms. Hill is the mother of my children, whom I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for. I would never do that.”

SIX KIDS?! Bless her heart, because I simply COULD NOT do it. Plan for Brittany: 2, maybe 3 and that's the cut off haha. But congrats to Lauryn and her family! Glad to hear baby boy is fine and everyone's doing well.


Amy Winehouse Passed Away

Sad news to report. According to The Guardian, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London flat. Her death is unexplained as of yet.

The Metropolitan police said: "Police were called by London ambulance service to an address in Camden Square shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased. On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene."

Amy was last seen with her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield earlier last week when the teenager performed at the iTunes festival.

Such sad news. I was just skyping my friend Ben in Australia when he told me the news. Absolutely crazy. I always talked about how talented Amy was, but that she just needed to get her life together. And now she's gone. It's a very sad situation. Prayers to her family and friends...rest in peace Amy.

I love her. I love 4. She is King. That is all.


Kate Middleton's Dress on Display at Buckingham Palace

The Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine, still known to the world as just Kate Middleton, married Prince William in April. Her wedding dress will now be on display at Buckingham Palace for the palace's annual summer opening for public tours. According to PEOPLE, starting Saturday, about 643,000 tickets will be available to tour the Palace. The tours will run until Oct. 3 and cost $28.50. (That's definitely way less than I was expecting!) A tour of the palace includes 19 state rooms, a special Royal Fabrege exhibit and a walk in the south side of the garden.

However, everyone will most be excited to view the exhibits on the wedding. Not only will Kate's ivory and white dress, created by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. stand under lights in the Ballroom of the Palace, but there are other features of the wedding seen as well. In rooms where the wedding celebrations took place, visitors will see handcrafted bridal shoes by the team at Alexander McQueen (size 8, with three-inch heels) and a replica of Kate's bridal bouquet made of silk flowers by wedding florist Shane Connolly. There will also be a film about the creation of the dress, featuring Sarah Burton. The state dining room features the tiered wedding cake, which looks almost like it did on the wedding day itself.

Wish I was in England right now! I wasn't completely obsessed with watching the royal wedding, but I saw bits and pieces. That dress was absolutely stunning on Kate! It's nice that the Palace will feature different parts of the wedding to the public who is dying to see everything. I know the tourists will eat that up!


Paranormal Activity 3 Trailer!

Ok, so the Paranormal Activity movies have always been terrible in terms of actually being scary. At least to me. I was just telling somebody the other day that I don't count them as horror movies. They're straight comedies in my book, which is why I have continued to go on and see them. And now Paranormal Activity 3 is coming out in October and I'm excited! The movie is a prequel to the entire series, and will explain why this evil spirit is so consumed with Katie. It will be released sometime in October. Check out the official trailer below!



Single Ladies Renewed!

Ahhhhh....my show Single Ladies on VH1 has been renewed for a second season! I wasn't exactly sure what was going to happen, if people were really feeling the show all that much or not, or if the network was going to continue. A lot of shows these days don't make it past their first season. But according to Entertainment Weekly, the second season of the show will start filming late this year and premiere in 2012. The show stars Stacey Dash, LisaRaye McCoy, and Charity Shea as three best friends living life in Atlanta, with all three of them involved in their share of hookups and scandals.

“Our viewers have fallen for Single Ladies and its honest, modern take on love, female friendship and dating,” said Jeff Olde, executive vice president of original programming & production, VH1. “We’re extremely pleased to give the audience another great season of the series they love.”

I LOVE this show. The glitz and glamor attracted me, as well as the drama from episode one, and I've been a faithful viewer every Monday night since. Definitely glad that VH1 is continuing on with the scripted series, which is a first for them, and excited to see where the show and characters will go in the future.

Jersey Shore Season 4 Trailer

In a few short weeks, Jersey Shore's fourth season in Italy will hit MTV! The trailer was released some hours ago, and can I just say that this looks like the CRAZIEST season of the Shore! Italians are probably like never, EVER again bring these crazy people to our country. The boys attempt to get some chicks in Italy...turns out girls are DTF worldwide! Snooki goes to jail for hitting a cop car. Mike gets pounded by Ronnie (well, we already knew that). The season premieres August 4 on MTV at 10 p.m ET. You already know I'll be there, tweeting away. Check out the trailer below!


"My Moment"-Rebecca Black (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Why did I put this girl on the blog? Because for a 14-year-old, she has a pretty decent voice. And I don't care what anybody says. "Friday" was THE SONG when I was in Australia! And Glee made it even better. For the naysayers, Rebecca Black has released her new song "My Moment." She sings, "Weren’t you the one who said that I would be
 nothing? Well, I’m about to prove you wrong." It won't be on Brittany's iPod because I am TOO old, but I can't knock her. She has a dream. She's going for it. And again, no matter what the naysayers say, the girl has made a name for herself. Do you baby girl. Watch the video for "My Moment" below!



Betty White Invited To the Marine Corps Ball Too!

Ok, so we've heard about both Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake being invited to the Marine Corps Ball. Well, it seems invitations will never end as Golden Girl Betty White gets an invite as well from Sgt. Ray Lewis (courtesy of PEOPLE). Lord this will never end! It was cute when the guy asked Mila. I saw the connection to Mila and Justin's new movie Friends with Benefits when this female Marine asked him. But now Betty?! She's 89, man! Haha but the funniest thing is that I could actually see her going along with it. I mean, Mila and Justin are going (even though they are separate balls...Marines have different balls throughout the year). So who knows? Maybe Betty will make an appearance. She has yet to accept or decline.

"I think I could make her laugh. I think she could make me laugh. We could laugh together." Hahaha is this kid for real?! Check out his invitation to Ms. Betty below!



Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony Split!

After seven years of marriage and two beautiful twin babies together, 3-year-olds Emme and Max, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have decided to get a divorce. A rep confirmed the news with Us Weekly. A statement from the couple said, "We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."

Just last year, the couple renewed their vows for their sixth wedding anniversary. This marks Jennifer's THIRD divorce after her marriages to Ojani Noa and Cris Judd ended in 1998 and 2003, and Marc's second after divorcing his first wife Dayanara Torres. Always sad to see couples break up...I definitely thought that they would make it. I wish them both the best, and that they figure out a good way to continue to co-parent their children.



O-M-FREAKING-G!!!! Ok, those who know me know that I am a proud Gleek! I have the whole first season and have pre-order the second season set to come in September! With the third season premiering in the fall (the final season for Rachel, Finn, and Kurt played by Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and Chris Colfer respectively), the creators of Glee have decided to release a concert movie in 3D, featuring all of the cast singing live and behind the scene clips! The movie trailer apparently premiered at the Harry Potter premiere today! The movie is set to be release August 12. TOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!! Check the trailer below!


Kardashian Kolors!

The Kardashians are one of, if not the absolute top, families in the entertainment industry. Say what you will, but they've stayed on. From several reality shows to their boutique Dash to perfumes etc, etc, the Kardashian sisters have really made a name for themselves. And now they are set to release their line of nail polishes this fall, entitled Kardashian Kolors!

Khloé released pictures of the "Kolors" today on her blog. Check out the polishes and learn their creative names after the jump!

Lil Kim Removed from Monica's New Single

Poor Kim can't win for losing in this business now, man. She was recently featured on Monica's newest single Anything (To Find You) which also featured Rick Ross. According to SingersRoom, the single is now to be released WITHOUT Kim's verse on the track. Apparently, the song has a sample from the Notorious B.I.G.'s hit “Who Shot Ya,” and Voletta Wallace, B.I.G.'s mom, SHUT THAT DOWN. So the finalized version does not have Kim's verse on it at all.

Monica tweeted her fans and explained the situation (Read from bottom up)

I wasn't really feeling Kim's verse connection with the song. To me, it was hardcore Kim which is great, but it didn't fit the feel of the song anyway. No diss. I do want her to make a comeback though, and compete with Nicki Minaj in female hip-hop. You know, since now a days people just giving Nicki awards, with her competing against irrelevant rappers *cough BET.* Monica, Kim, and Missy Elliot who worked on the track, are fighting to get the Biggie Estate to let them use Kim's verse. We'll see how that goes. The original version is below...though I don't know how long it will be up as copyright claims are being brought up on YouTube, and the original is being taken down slowly but surely.


"I Miss U"-Britni Elise (Song)

I get a rack of emails everyday, spam from music websites and such. And sometimes they have some great upcoming artists, like upcoming singer/songwriter Britni Elise here. I have a song that she did a demo for Rihanna, "Don't Give A Damn About You," on my iPod. Can't remember how I found out. Even though it was a good demo, Ri never used it. Anyway, I like Britni's voice on that. And now she's come out with a new song quite recently entitled "I Miss You." Another amazing song by her...thought I would share. Check Britni talk about "I Miss You," and hear it in full.



"Bad Girls' Club"-Wale feat. J. Cole (Full Song)

So Wale released a snippet of his song "Bad Girls' Club" featuring J. Cole, a few days back. He just released the full song a little while ago. LOVE. But then again, I'm biased because I'm in love with Wale haha. But this track is hot, the beat is sick. This is for the bad girls doing their thing...what up?! Check out the full song below!

Wale - "Bad Girls Club" feat. J. Cole by RalphFolarin

Oh and btw...contrary to recent reports this is NOT Wale's lead single.


Lil Wayne to Release Clothing Line

Featured in the present issue of XXL, Lil Wayne is prepping to release a clothing line, entitled Rebirth, the same name as his 2010 album.“I just figure people want to be funky like me, so I got my clothing line.” he said. The rapper has been busy, releasing his mixtape, Sorry For The Wait, yesterday, starting the second leg of I Am Still Music tour last night, and is working on his long-awaited album Tha Carter IV, set to drop August 29. Gotta respect the grind.

Can't wait to see what this clothing line is going to look like. Already know that if he and his team works this out right, people are going to be buying like crazy. Simply cuz it'll be by Lil Wayne


The X Factor USA Preview

The preview for the X Factor USA has been released, and can I just say...WOW. This is American Idol times a million, with judges Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Paula Abdul, and Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls. Just from the preview, it looks like there will be harsher criticisms (don't get confused by the beginning of the preview...Simon is still Simon haha), big meltdowns, and excellent talent. When Simon first announced his plans to bring his hit show from England to the States, I was excited. One, because I love him. I think that he's an amazing judge of talent. Two, he was bringing on Paula as well as L.A. Reid who both have a lot of experience in the music industry. Nicole...sure, why not? And three, I'm interested to see how the show will fare against American Idol. I personally think that their ratings will be higher, because everybody wants to see Simon and Paula again. But we'll see. Check out the preview below! The season premieres September 21 on FOX.


Sarah Jessica Parker Vogue Cover

"Best Thing I Never Had"-Beyoncé (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

"Thank God I found the GOOD in goodbye..."

Beyoncé just released her video for her second single, "Best Thing I Never Had," from her album 4 moments ago. Of course, I was on BeyonceOnline right at 8 o'clock! Haha I have been anticipating this video for a while. The song is amazing! Honestly, I feel like it's one of B's best in her career. In the video, she speaks directly to a past boyfriend while preparing for her wedding (perhaps her real life ex that she was with from what like ages 11-19, looking at the '98 prom scene!). She lets him know basically that, "Hey, you showed out, and I moved on. You will never have me, and that's going to be one of the biggest mistakes of your life." Always gonna be the best thing you never had.

I loved the video itself. It was Beyoncé's silly side that's always good to see, and a lot of smiles! I can tell this was a real life song for her. The wedding dress was beautiful. Didn't really care for the bunching at the hip, but it was gorgeous still! And I don't know. Not that I expected it, but how excellent would it have been if Jay was the groom?! I mean, she is acknowledging their marriage more and more in speeches and interviews. The romantic in me would have loved it haha! Check out "Best Thing I Never Had" below!


"Bad Girls' Club"-Wale feat. J. Cole (Snippet)

Can I just have a moment and freak out over this collaboration with Wale and J. Cole?! One, because I just love them both. Especially Wale! *infatuated sigh* And two, because I am excited to finally hear something from  Wale's second album, which is supposed to come out later this year. Self Made with Rick Ross and Maybach is great, but I'm looking forward to hearing the material that Wale himself is putting out. A  lot of people want to see how his signing to Maybach will influence his music, his singles, and sales. I know I am.

Definitely excited about this 30-snippet of Wale's expected first single "Bad Girls' Club," featuring J. Cole! It's a  hot track from what I hear. I like the beat a lot. Can't wait to hear the full version! The full song is to be released July 19th and apparently a video has already been shot! Check the snippet below!
