Lots Of Disappointed Fans
Yesterday we learned that Kanye West was planning another series of video projections across the globe for his latest single, New Slaves. Even though none of the projections were popping off in Nyack, NY I was still excited to see some new videos from other parts of the world (and PITNBr nicole was hoping for a second experience in Toronto). Unfortunately, all of last night’s projections didn’t go so smoothly, especially in Houston, Texas. Police apparently shut down the video at one location, while others experienced technical difficulties. Click inside to learn more.

The Reign Of Young Yeezus Continues
In case anyone forgot, it’s still Yeezy season up in here! Last week Kanye West literally took over the world by debuting his single New Slaves on buildings throughout the world. He then delivered an unforgettable performance on the season finale of Saturday Night Live and also debuted another new track titled, Black Skinhead. Since then we’ve seen the artwork for the new album, which is called Yeezus. Yup. Yeezus. We’re now learning that young Yeezus will be projecting more videos around the world this weekend.

It's All About The 'Banji' Movement
We all know that rap is a male-dominated genre, which is why it’s always awesome when new femme rappers start getting some attention. Azealia Banks, Angel Haze, and Iggy Azealea are just a few artists that I’ve been keeping an eye on, and now we have Sharaya J. Missy Elliot has endorsed this Hawaiian-born Jersey girl and today we get our first listen to her latest single, BANJI which features vocals from Missy. Click inside for more!

Yesterday was a pretty bizzy day for me … I spent part of my evening watching the Detroit Red Wings defeat the Chicago Blackhawks, then I “ran into” the very same metal sign that Kanye West bashed his head on earlier this month, then I got my haircut, then I made my way out to Glendale, CA to see Hanzel und Gretyl live in concert. It was a late night for me but it turned out to be hella fun. More »

Funny thing about our siblings – sometimes we forget to tell them how special they really are.
For Katie, she was searching for a way to tell her big sister Kristine just how much she meant to her. Enter Boyz II Men, and the Kia Sorento Serenades sweepstakes.
Katie entered the sweepstakes and with a little from Kia, got a chance to have all-time great R&B group Boyz II Men come to Los Angeles and give Kristine a very special musical surprise.
Check out what happened in the video above – and click HERE to find out more about Kia and Sorento Serenades with Boyz II Men.
Throwback Thursday Gets A Little Nasty
If you follow Trent on Facebook you might have noticed that he had a Janet Jackson moment earlier this week, and made a note-to-self to re-learn the choreography from her 1993 music video If. The next day Janet was making headlines because she officially became a billionaire… like, with her own money. It just so happens that she’s also married to a billionaire, ya know. Just for fun… lol. Naturally, all this got me thinking about this woman’s unforgettable career and I was like, ya know? It makes perfect sense that she’s a billionaire! If I’d written Rhythm Nation, I’d expect to be a billionaire as well. So while we’re sitting over here waiting for Trent to post his remake of the If video on YouTube, we might as well get into some Throwback
Janet Ms. Jackson, right? Click inside for more!

In celebration of Morrissey‘s birthday yesterday the LA-based Smiths/Morrissey tribute band Sweet and Tender Hooligans performed in concert last night at The Fonda Theater in celebration. Each year, no matter what day of the week May 22 falls on, the Hooligans perform a birthday show where a portion of the proceeds of ticket sales are donated to a local animal shelter (as a gift to animal activist Morrissey). I’m a pretty fond of Sweet and Tender Hooligans so I made my way out to the show last night … and had a blast! More »
Beyoncé, Michelle, Pusha T, & The-Dream Get Features
Okay, you wanna hear something hilarious? There was a rumor going around that Beyoncé purposefully leaked those pregnancy rumors to detract from much of the hype surrounding Kelly Rowland‘s latest, super-epic, super-impressive single (in which she shares intimate details about her friendship with the Queen Bey), Dirty Laundry. Isn’t that ridiculous?! I mean, I was kind of wondering if Bey was gonna make a statement (at least one of support) since Kelly really poured her heart out on that track, not only about Beyoncé but also about her experience in an abusive relationship. Bey hasn’t said a word (granted, she’s pretty busy), but I can’t imagine there’d be any bad blood between the two of them over the song… right??? Anywho, Kelly‘s Talk A Good Game is about to hit the shelves, and I was excited to see she’d just released her tracklist. Click inside for more!
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Oh boy. I can safely say I did not see this coming, but Lil Wayne has been making lots of interesting choices over the past few years, so maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised. Ummm. Okay, how do I say this? Paris Hilton has apparently signed with the hip-hop label Cash Money Records…???!!! LMAO, ooookay! I mean, I knew she was into music, and put out an album a while back, (and was maybe a DJ… or something), but when you sign with the label responsible for Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Drake, that’s kind of a big deal! Am I gonna have to start paying attention to Paris Hilton‘s music?! Aghhhh! That ish is entirely too cray. Click inside for more!
It's All Going Down In Brooklyn
We all knew that Beyoncé‘s Mrs. Carter Show world tour was going to be a huge deal, but I’m not sure we were prepared for all of the madness surrounding these concerts. We’ve had nipple costume drama, postponed performances that then fueled pregnancy rumors, and now we’ve got the return of Lady Gaga! Many of you may remember that Gaga suffered a severe hip injury earlier this year, and was forced to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball world tour. Now we’re hearing reports that her first performance following her recovery will be during Beyoncé‘s NYC show at the Barclays Center. Jay-Z and Kanye West are expected to hit the stage, which means this show is gonna be completely insane! Click inside for more!
