Rumor Mill: R&B Divas New York is Possibly in the Works! Check Out the Prospects....

*Side Note: This is ALL ALLEDGED and Pure Speculation until I can confirm this info with true resources than it will and should be treated as nothing more than a really good RUMOR!*



Well I kind of saw this coming and hoped it would have came before R&B Divas LA but never the less its a strong possibility so I'm game. R&B Divas New York is in the works and here are some possible candidates: Lisa Lisa, Sunshine Anderson, Tweet, Blu Cantrell, and Adina Howard.

Nicci Gilbert and Faith Evans are considering Lisa Lisa as the anchor for Season 4 of R&B Divas. Since she is based in NYC and is of the iconic artists who bridged the gap of 80s R&B to 90s R&B music, they are hoping for a major YES. Lisa Lisa hasn't publicly or privately confirmed whether she will be on the show or not but she has admitted to being a huge fan of the show. So one can only hope lol, fingers crossed! Tweet was also questioned about her being apart of the show in an interview with a radio station and she was very much willing to make the move and be apart of the show. Sounds like if all the ladies are on board you've some of the cast pulled together.


Here's a Little Background on the Ladies in this Cast:


If you're not sure who Lisa Lisa is lets take a trip down memory lane. Lisa Lisa (and Cult Jam) has had numerous hits from late the 80s to the early 90s. Hits like "All Cried Out" (If your a 90s kid you might remember a group called Allure who remade the song with 112. Same name and everything.), "Head to Toe", "I Wonder If I Take You Home","Let the Beat Hit 'Em", and "Skip to my Lu". 

I've heard most of Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam's hits. They were very popular and my father a music connoisseur had most of her albums. So as a child I grew up listening to Lisa Lisa. I liked her music and still do to this day. I'm glad she may be back in the spotlight. Lisa Lisa began a phase of music that forever changed how R&B was perceived throughout the late 80s and early 90s. She's a pioneer. 




Sunshine Anderson is a R&B artist who came out in the early millennium. Her biggest hit was "Heard it All Before". One of my favorite songs by her to this day. Shes had other hits like "Lunch or Dinner", "Force of Nature", "Wear the Crown", and"Something I Wanna Give You"


















Personally Heard it All Before was the only song I can remember Sunshine Anderson coming out with that was a big hit. I know she collaborated with a lot of artists like Anthony Hamilton and others like him but honestly I didn't think she was still doing music. I hadn't heard anything strong from since her first album. But if she does do the show I'd be really glad because Sunshine Anderson can really sing.

Adina Howard was a mid 90s R&B artist is best known for her sexualized image and provocative songs. Her biggest hit was "Freak Like Me". It peaked at number 2 on the US and US R&B charts, it stayed there for quite some time too. My father loved this song it was played on the radio all the time and he had the edited version because he didn't want us listening to the very provocative lyrics. After that she had some singles that were ok on the charts singles like "What's Love Got to Do with It (with Warren G)", "It's All About You", "My Up and Down", "Chocolate (Cuties & Condoms)", and "(Freak) And U Know It".

In 2011 Adina Howard got married and began living a totally different life. I'm sure she hasn't changed much though.
I liked Adina Howard but she was ahead of her time. She was like the Millie Jackson of the 90s. Very raw, very raunchy and sexually charged. Hope she's on the show.







Tweet is best known for her singles "Ooops Oh My" "Call Me" and "Smoking Cigarettes". All off the debut album Southern Hummingbird. Southern Hummingbird debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, selling 195,000 copies in its first week. It was preceded by the lead single "Oops (Oh My)", which reached number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart. She was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2002 BET Awards, she also received a nomination for Soul Train Lady of Soul Award. In 2005 she released her single "Turn Da Lights Off" off of her second album Its Me Again. It didn't do as well her previous album debuting at number seventeen on the US Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 55,000 copies. After a while it peaked at number 2 on the US Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart. And after that Tweet kind of fell off. She did some appearances in TV like The Parkers and in movies like Honey but other than that she was nowhere to be found.




I liked Tweet and I thought she was going to be big but for some reason she wasn't being pushed. I hope she does get back in the studio and adds some diversity to this music scene. When you have a variety of artists to choose from it makes music more interesting. So I hope Tweet signs up for this show and gets it!





Blu Cantrell was famous for her songs "Hit Em Up Style (Oops)" and "Breathe". "Hit Em Up
Style (Oops)" was a single off her debut album So Blu. This song earned Blu, 2 Grammy nominations Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and for Best R&B Song and she also was nominated for American Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B New Artist all in 2002. Afterwards Blu Cantrell released her next album Bittersweet the lead single was a song called "Breathe feat Sean Paul", followed up by "Make Me Wanna Scream". Bittersweet was nominated for a Grammy in 2004 for Best R&B Album. She received worldwide attention for this album and the lead single. Afterwards Blu Cantrell's sexual past caught up with her and began to slowly kill her career. Before becoming an R&B songstress Blu posed for nude a magazine. Many people misconstrued the photos and accused her of being a pornstar. Afterwards the only thing you would hear about Blu Cantrell is her nude photos in magazines. The focus on her powerhouse voice and sound was shifted toward scandalous rumors and gossip. After years of nothing Blu is set to release an album this year if it isn't already out called I Am Blu. If she gets on R&B Divas New York she could make a major comeback.


Potential Cast:

Lisa Lisa
Sunshine Anderson 
Blu Cantrell
Tweet
Adina Howard

Rumor Mill: Is Drake Leaving YMCMB? Hmm...I Doubt It!


Well rumors about Drake leaving YMCMB have been circulating since he first signed to the record label. Everything from his money to his contract negotiations was gossiped and speculated about. Many reports claiming many things but nothing rang with any truth. Drake is often asked about his tenure in the YMCMB camp and he always responds with something along the lines of he and Lil Wayne are good friends and he's happy being apart of the record label or he dodges the question.

The rumors are swirling again about Drake leaving YMCMB. Nicki Minaj was on the phone with Flex at 97FM to originally discuss the DJ Khaled proposal incident. During the interview she was asked to address the rumors of Drake leaving and here's what she said:


“Drake is my baby. Whatever’s going on now, obviously, we’re all very busy. Sh*t happens. It gets hard to have a real connection when people are on different sides of the world. You never know what people have in their ear. Drake is my baby and Wayne is my everything.”




Check out the Interview Here:



Drake hasn't confirmed or denied anything and neither has Nicki. I remember when Nicki had her mini special on E! and Lil Wayne was talking to her about not being able to be to spend time with her or Drake. Seriously go to YouTube and find the clips or go to E! you'll see that he says it kind of coded but it was clear he was talking about Drake. Guess we'll just have to wait and see how this develops!

OMG! In Gross News...Pedophiles and SOME Psychiatrists Are Asking for the Same Rights As Homosexuals?!

Hurbert Van Gijseghem, psychologist and
retired professor
of the University of Montreal

This is probably one of the most disgusting and downright creepy blogs I will ever write. I was on Facebook this morning trolling through my timeline and I came across a news article about Pedophiles fighting to be able to legally have sex with children. Their claim is that their "lifestyle" should be considered a sexual orientation not a crime. Here's an excerpt from the article that I want you guys to see so its going to in BIG BOLD LETTERS, here it is:
In 1998 The APA issued a report claiming “that the ‘negative potential’ of adult sex with children was ‘overstated’ and that ‘the vast majority of both men and women reported no negative sexual effects from childhood sexual abuse experiences.”
When asked if he should be comparing pedophiles to homosexuals, Van Gijseghem replied, “If, for instance, you were living in a society where heterosexuality is proscribed or prohibited and you were told that you had to get therapy to change your sexual orientation, you would probably say that that is slightly crazy. In other words, you would not accept that at all. I use this analogy to say that, yes indeed, pedophiles do not change their sexual orientation.”
The IASHS lists, on its website, a list of “basic sexual rights” that includes “the right to engage in sexual acts or activities of any kind whatsoever, providing they do not involve nonconsensual acts, violence, constraint, coercion or fraud.” Another right is to, “be free of persecution, condemnation, discrimination, or societal intervention in private sexual behavior” and “the freedom of any sexual thought, fantasy or desire.” The organization also says that no one should be “disadvantaged because of age.” - To read the entire article click here

Throwing Major Shade! Rihanna Instagrams Subliminal Message to Chris Brown

Rihanna and Chris Brown via Bossip.com




























Chris Brown did an interview where he was asked about his relationship with Rihanna and his other ex Karrueche. He was questioned whether he was with one of them or not. Chris quickly dispelled the rumors and explained he's not with either one but he's good friends with them both.


Well shortly after the interview went public Rihanna took to Instagram to express her feelings. Meme picture below:



It's hilarious to me. If this meme was a shot at Chris Brown, Just let it go. Got damn! You're a grown ass women get the eff over it! Find another dude to obsess over or rather date you've done it before i.e. Matt Kemp, Drake, etc. L.I.G. it Rihanna, seriously! It needs to be a done deal. Your relationship was toxic. Chris ended up in court and you ended up with a black eye. Leave it and him alone. Period!

Shots Fired: Lil Mo Digs at Stevie Wonder's Boycotting Florida's "Stand Your Ground Law"



Lil Mo has decided to make a statement about the recent boycott of artists against the verdict of George Zimmerman, but made a particular dig at Stevie Wonder. Look I'm all for freedom of speech and she shouldn't be stifled simply because people don't like what was said. But you have to be respectful. Lil Mo took to twitter to voice her disdain about the recent boycotts of Florida by celebrities.

She tweeted:
“Ever since the verdict, a certain artist is boycotting the state of Florida. The fans don't deserve to be deserted,” she tweeted. “If the coin was right, would HIS staff accept or deny the gig? And if so how would he know? They could say it’s sumpter, sc or nah?”
“TBH some artists have staff that dedicate their LIFE to that artist so when that artists expires the TEAM outta work. Think abt it b4 u buck,” - See more at: Cocoafab
Really Lil Mo? Really? This is disrespectful and unacceptable. First off he has a right to assert himself for something he believes in. I don't think boycotting Florida will hurt him in anyway he could be in any country in the world and make twice as much as he would in a concert in Florida. He's not doing this to hurt his staff or anyone he's doing this to make a point. Stevie Wonder is a world wide artist and phenomenon. Furthermore there were plenty of other artists who are refusing to have concerts or anything in Florida, people like Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Madonna, and Justin Timberlake just to name a few. But you didn't make any snide comments at any of them in your twitter rant, No. You singled out Stevie Wonder in a roundabout way.

Second let these artists deal with the consequences of their actions. If its hurting them they will just have to eat that cost. Why are you concerned your not boycotting this way so L.I.G. Its not about what you said its how you said it. You weren't sounding concerned you sounded like you were trying to put someone on blast. Like they were just doing this boycotting thing for publicity. I do understand your frustration but this how they feel taking a stand would benefit the community and make Florida understand that the people do have a voice. And by the way there are artists who are doing small benefit concerts and showing up to vigils, but others feel that this is a better way to show their severe disdain for the injustice of Trayvon Martin.


Let's be real here, Stevie Wonder didn't have to boost his career by getting on reality TV. So he's not missing a beat by boycotting Florida His music is timeless. No matter how many breaks he takes, he can always come back with new music or old music and out sell you and everyone else in the world without even trying. So fall back Lil Mo and in the words of The Rock: "Know Your Role and Shut Your Mouth" Let them express their voice the way they want. If you don't want to boycott this way that's your business. I'm not judging you but you can't judge them for what they decide to do for themselves and their community. #imjussayin

What do y'all think?

Kanye West WANTED for Felony Attempted ROBBERY!!!!

There is a warrant for the arrest of Mr. Kanye West! I thought this was a joke when I read it but its REAL!



Apparently Kanye was outside LAX today and assaulted a photographer/paparazzi! The photographer was doing his annoying job by hassling Kanye about his current album Yeezus. Instead of ignoring the guy Kanye assaulted him! The photographer was injured and taken to the hospital. He pressed charges against Kanye and it was taken to the D.A. Instead of assault charges being filed, the D.A. charged him with Felony Attempted Robbery!!!!

Check out the video Here:



Don't know where the felony attempted robbery part came from but this is messed up. First off everyone knows these freelance photographers, paparazzi, blogger photographers, etc are so rude and invade people's privacy. There needs to laws put in place to protect the celebrities and their children from being bombarded and damn near killed. Its ridiculous and annoying. No matter how much money they have or notoriety they gain, they are still people and should be treated as such. Kanye, I know you're frustrated because everyone is in your business but this is what you have to deal with being a musician, actor, or celebrity. Its unfair I know but you have to keep your cool. Also you are dating a woman who is hungry for the limelight. She will do and has done just about anything to keep her name in the media. Understand your position in life and make your peace with it. Before you end up in jail with no career, no music, no girlfriend, and no North West. Think about it man, was beating this dude up really worth it? I don't think so.

Ya'll tell me what ya'll think are the charges justified? Comment below!

Shay v. Erica...Shay "Buckeey" Johnson @ The Breakfast Club Just Riding Erica. Hmm...Seems Like Erica was On to Something about Her Mouth



Well Shay is trying to keep herself in the limelight by busting Erica allegedly. Shay was on The Breakfast Club on Power 105 and she was there to basically out Erica and discredit her from being the victim of Scrappy's infidelity to alleging that she was the original cheater during her relationship with Scrappy. Mind you all the information Shay is spewing came from Scrappy. Just something to keep in the back of your mind. 

Now the reunion for Love and Hip Hop Atlanta was tapped last week. It was a lot revealed at the reunion apparently. One of the things Shay decided to share with the entire world including the Breakfast Club was that at the reunion Scrappy revealed how Erica was sleeping with a married man and got pregnant by him! Wow shocking! She also alleges that Erica cheated on Scrappy first. She claimed Erica cheated early on in the relationship and that's when Scrappy started sleeping with other women, that's when he officially began cheating.


Let me tell you why this information that Shay is releasing is not surprising. First off all Shay is doing all this because of something that happened last year. But her anger is misguided. Yeah she and Erica have words on twitter or whatever but on the flip Shay knew exactly what was going on between Erica and Scrappy and she didn't care about what it would do to Erica or her daughter Emani. Her main focus was getting next to Scrappy and being his main woman. When it backfired she turns into a scorned woman who vents her anger at the very woman she tried to burn.

If Erica was with a married man and got pregnant that was poor decision made her part. But does it surprise me, Hell Naw! I'm going tell you why. She chose to be with a man [Scrappy] and accept his proposal after she saw his infidelity on national TV and after he left her the first time for Diamond. So her being with someone else who was also unavailable does not shock me at all.

Shay is always on this tip of saying she does not care for Erica. But honestly who can believe you when you do shit like this? Your always trying to discredit her. Like your trying to prove that you're the better woman and everyone should be on your side rather than hers. Here's the harsh reality: NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU TRY TO BASH HER, YOU AND HER WILL NEVER BE JUDGED THE SAME. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE JUDGED AS A SIDE LINE HOE, A PART OF THE BOTTOM BITCH THEORY. ERICA WILL ALWAYS BE JUDGED AS THE MAIN CHICK WHO KEEPS MAKING THE SAME DUMB ASS MISTAKES AS FAR AS CHOOSING A MAN WHO YOU KNOW IS NOT READY FOR THE COMMITMENT THAT YOU WANT.

Shay here's some advice: Let This Shit Go new acronym L.T.S.G. I just feel like this doesn't do anything for you, your career or anything. It's difficult to take your seriously when seeing you act like a jester in the court, trying to entertain the masses. Girl pull it together go back to video modeling, male magazine modeling, etc. Do your work and be on your hustle. Find a dude that really digs you and wants you for you. Not some little boy who still sucking on his momma titty! Honestly I think your a cool chick but if you are blinded by dick that much then honey you have a serious problem.

Erica you seem like a strong woman and there is no reason for you to be fighting or putting up with this foolishness. Honestly I hope that you care enough about yourself not to entertain this nonsense. Shay is not worth your self pride and your daughter looks up to you. Is this the type of woman you want your daughter to idolize? I don't think this is what you want.

Just stop fighting with her. You don't have to be her friend. But you can be cordial. BE AN ADULT. There is no reason to fight with her. Sit down with her woman to woman and tell her this: Listen I know we've had our differences but I'm willing to let bygones be bygones just to keep the peace. There is no reason for me to argue with you or be fighting you. I'm done with it. I will speak to you and at least acknowledge your presence when your in a room but other than that we go our separate ways and move on with our lives.

Both of ya'll need to pull it together. Really, Scrappy is a master manipulator for ya'll (for some reason). He has a strong hold on you and honestly whatever the culprit please let it go. Here's the interview, I'm going to be honest it doesn't look like they welcomed her to the show it just seemed like the let her get on the show because she was there. Take a look for yourself:

Total BS!!!!! George Zimmerman is ACQUITTED OF ALL CHARGES!!!!!!

This case was so captivating the entire nation has been following it and it was televised on CNN. George Zimmerman a Hispanic male and leader of the local neighborhood watch shot and killed Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012.


Everyone has had an opinion on this topic since the news broke and I thought because of the strong media coverage and heavy opinions being thrown out that the case would left in the hands of a judge rather than a jury. I believed any jury pool would be tainted because of the strong media coverage and protests.


I feel like this. If Trayvon did beat up George Zimmerman then it was because he was defending himself. The boy didn't have any intention of committing any crime and to find Zimmerman not guilty of anything is outrageous. It sounds like negligent homicide to me (A person who commits negligent homicide if he or she negligently causes the death of another person or Negligent homicide is the killing of another person through gross negligence or without malice. Usually this applied when someone uses a vehicle of some kind boat, car etc. In rare cases is it applied to a murder without a vehicle being involved. I think in this instance it fits). But I'm no lawyer or paralegal. I feel George Zimmerman acted carelessly and therefore cause the death of a 17 year old kid. It makes it worse because the young man was African American and everyone slaps racial profiling on there too. But to me it doesn't matter what his race is, it only matters that he and his family see justice for his murder and he didn't get it today.

I feel bad for the family of Trayvon Martin. They deserved better than this and this long drawn out case has done nothing heal this family. I pray everything works out in the end. I would that anybody and everybody who has followed this case or read about it is clear that nothing about this case was cut and dry. It was a difficult case from the start and because of that justice did not prevail. I don't want to assume what happened to Trayvon, I just want some peace. He didn't deserve to die the way he did and it was clear that there were holes in the story of Trayvon's last day on earth. At the end of the day, he deserved better than what he got.

Trayvon Martin Rest In Peace, Honey. #Justice4Trayvon #TrayvonMartinRIP
