NEW MUSIC: DANITY KANE 'DK3'

PHOTO CRED: DANITY KANE

In the midst of the crazy breakup early August of this year, it looks like the new sound and music will be released after all. If you haven't heard, early last year pop selling Making the Band girl group DANITY KANE sparked conversation by stating they were coming back as a group (Aundrea Fimbres, Aubrey O'Day, Shannon Bex and Dawn Richard), D.Woods decided to sit this one out due to work obligations that would interfere with her return to the group. 



Then once the group started working on their new music in the studio and went on a short mini comeback tour, member, Aundrea Fimbres resigned stating she wanted to start a family and that she'll continue to cheer on the three (Dawn, Aubrey and Shannon). With the hit radio buzz of the new trio's single "Lemonade" featuring Tyga, the pressure was on for the girls to create another number one album. 

In early August, the internet hit news of a physical altercation between Dawn and Aubrey which resulted in the girls terminating DANITY KANE as a group, indefinitely. Press releases were released by the three members regarding the incident, apologizing for the disappointment they've caused towards the fans. Within the statements neither of the women discussed the fate of their new album and music. 

Until now, Aubrey O'Day as well as Shannon Bex took to their Instagram accounts and posted a video stating the final DANITY KANE LP 'DK3' will be released October 10/28/14 and pre-sale begins 9/26/14. Along with pre-ordering the album you can listen to snippets of the album and automatically gain the groups popular tour song "Rhythm Of Love".

Of course with in the bittersweet moment, Dawn Richard had to make a statement regarding the on goings of the release of the album. Looks as if Dawn MAY have threw a little bit of writer's SHADE for the album. See what Dawn had to say after the jump...

The 'WANNABE' Braxton is about to hit us hard in the next weeks to come. Traci Braxton of 'Braxton Family Values' is finally releasing her debut album 'Crash & Burn'. For three seasons we've seen Traci complain about being in the shadows of her sisters Toni, Towanda, Trina and Tamar Braxton as they all had a piece of the music industry. Patiently Traci awaited her time and the time is now! 

On October 7th, Traci Braxton will release her LP 'Crash & Burn' for the world to hear. The LP's leading RnB single "Last Call" has already been on heavy rotation on the airwaves and the music video is just as beautiful as the song sounds. I'm so proud of Traci Braxton and I can't wait to hear the LP in it's entirety. The LP comes as a shocker because no one really ever though Traci would go forth with releasing an album. 

Check Out The Video For "Last Call" Below:

New Music: Nick Jonas "Jealous"


Watch Out Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber & Miguel !!! 

Younger brother of the Jonas Brothers, Nick released his second single "Jealous" a follow up to the summer single "Chains". Leave it up to Nick to represent for the jealous guys out there when they become territorial of their woman. Nick means no disrespect or harm but he doesn't want anyone to come close to what's his. The song has a nice R&B feel. 

I don’t like the way he’s looking at you,
I’m starting to think you want him too.
Am I crazy, ?Have I lost ya.
Even though I know you love me,
Can’t help it.

I turn my cheek, music up,
And I’m puffing my chest.
I’m getting ready to face you,
Can call me obsessed.

It’s not your fault that they hover,
I mean no disrespect.
It’s my right to be hellish,
I still get jealous.

Jordin Sparks Pens A Loving Tumblr Post About Her Dad & Loved Ones

Photo Cred: Jordin Sparks Instagram

Leave it to Jordin Sparks to give us something thoughtful and spiritual all in a Tumblr post. The American Idol winner and actress took the time out to post a loving letter about her father and taking the time out of her busy schedule to call up a few loved ones for memories. In the letter, Jordin describes how thankful she is to speak to her father on more than one occasion where he humbles her as well as learns more about the man who has known her all her life.

Jordin reminds us no matter how busy we are for anyone the importance of picking up that phone call, text, video chat or etc. will create memories that will live on forever. Live in the moment. Jordin Sparks titles the post 'When The Memories Flood In'. Jordin writes: 

"Last night, I got misty eyed listening to my song, Just For The Record. Not because it’s 7ish years old. (Which is CRAZY to me.) But because it was and is my Dad’s favorite. If this was a slideshow, you’d see all the times he would sing the tag line to me with a goofy grin on his face. How his face would light up when he heard the beginning instrumental with that tell-tale whistle. Oh, and when he would start to dance and really get into singing the song with me…

Kate Middleton & Prince William Are Expecting Their Second Child!

Photo Cred: E Online!
Congrats are in order to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they announced they are expecting their second royalty child. Both family members are ecstatic of the news but could it be tears of joy for Prince Harry? He will now be knocked down to fifth in line for the throne as the new baby will move to the fourth in line. 

We're pretty sure Prince Harry has nothing but love for his new extended family. The Duke and Duchess have their one year old son, Prince George who was welcomed July 22, 2013. No word on if it's a boy or girl, but I'm hoping it's a girl so that Prince Harry can live with hope of becoming royalty realness! Imagine the royal family with a baby girl?! 

CONGRATS TO YOU BRITISH ROYALTIES!!!

SUNDAY REPLAY - SAM SMITH "RESTART"


SAM SMITH CONCERT TICKETS PLEASE?!

Ever since Sam Smith's debut album 'In The Lonely Hour' released, there has been this one song I can't take off repeat, "Restart". It's something about the beat that reminds me of an 80s pop/r&b sound. Each time I listen, it reminds me of something Whitney Houston would have recorded back in her early recording days.

Love & Hip Hop's Momma Dee's Tooth Falls Out During Single Showcase [VIDEO]


AND IN THAT ORDER....IT FELL OUT!

Well it hasn't been quite the weekend for Momma Dee. Seems as if Momma Dee's tooth is getting more attention than her single release showcase. YES, Momma Dee put on a 30-min SINGING showcase to commend her spiraling debut single "I Deserve". 

It is within this showcase around the 7:20 mark, her tooth felt it deserved to take a break and cause a mishap into her set. Quickly, Momma Dee caught on and placed that tooth back in order. The show continued after that. "I Deserve" is the only single Momma Dee owns and sang during her touching showcase. Momma Dee sang covers of great classic R&B hits. The showcase was phenomenally put together with a live band and she shocked and blew me away with her stage presence.

One Year Early For GUCCI MANE!


I Didn't Even Know Gucci Was Even Locked Up!

With all these rappers hopping on tracks left and right, I didn't know everyone's beloved Gucci Mane was incarcerated for gun possession just a year ago. Gucci's 39-month sentence was supposed to start last month (August 2014) but I guess Atlanta judge must've been a hardcore fan of Gucci after a big break he gave the rapper. 

The judge ruled Gucci Mane's sentence would start the time he went into jail. With that being said and dismissed, Gucci will now be released a year earlier, December 2016.

Anyone Miss The Brrrr Mane?!

Coming Face to Face with Jealousy


CURRENTLY PLAYING: "BIG GIRLS CRY" - SIA 

Putting up a facade when deep inside you're broken into pieces in front of the world is the hardest thing to live through. Going through a breakup with someone you genuinely had/have feelings for is the hardest thing in life we all wish we can erase. Why do people choose to break someone's heart? Why are there evil people in the world who don't care about other's feelings whatsoever? The only answer to all of this is to "SIMPLY" move on, right? 

The first few days after a breakup are the hardest. No, I take that back, the first hours after a breakup is like sitting under a hot scorching sun; equivalent to HELL. A lot of things are running through your mind; Will we ever get back together? Can we remain friends? What if he/she moves on to someone better? or even the biggest question of them all, Is he/she going to have SEX right away?

The Beginning of a New Era


BACK BUT NOT HALFWAY...

There comes a time in a person's life where they must contemplate their thoughts and let it out in written format. However, I have a lot of thoughts, questions as well as answers I need to express to you all. I've decided to give a certain self evaluation needed space on my blog for myself as an outlet to express some of the things on my mind: what's bothering me, ideas, advice and stories. 

Some of you only are familiar with me through my blog (Entertainment) and some of you know me personally. You might have questions as to where have I been?, what have I been up to? and most importantly why haven't I been blogging lately?. The question that I frequently get asked is do I still blog?. The answer to that is, YES! I still blog (THANK YOU ALL WHO SHOW SUPPORT). I had to take a step back to focus on my senior year of college (Which I completed this past May). As to why didn't I come back? I won't give you an answer just yet. 

Which is why I decided to start a journal/blog portion on my website. I'm stuck between calling my site a blog or not. I purchased a domain, it is a place where I post entertainment stories, I generally feel like I am entitled to call it my website. This here journal portion will be a reflection of who I really am as a person. Not a lot of people really know me as a human being, they just know me based on how I portray myself on the outside. TRUST ME there is a fine thick layer between who I really am and what you really see. 

Each week I'll write a journal entry and by doing so it will unfold to the person I really am. I am caring, silly, serious, emotional, loving, a friend, a lover, an aspiring singer/actor, blogger, writer, reader, as well as a huge supporter. Most importantly, I LOVE MYSELF

UNTIL NEXT TIME...

'BRAXTON FAMILY VALUES' SEASON 4 TRAILER [VIDEO]


THEY ARE BACK...WITH TONS OF DRAMA!!! 

From their first big on screen fight, I thought reality tv for the Braxton family wasn't such a good idea. I actually had empathy for the family and I suggested as amazing the ratings have been for the show, however the plug needs to be pulled. America's favorite African-American musical family shouldn't be seen bickering and arguing over fame, divorce, egos, infidelity, resentment and so on. 

After doing tons of press, the Braxton family expressed the issues seen on the show happens to everyone in a family, big or small. After watching seasons 2 and 3, I changed my mind and said "okay they're correct" as they all worked to mend their bitterness towards one another. The issues on the show couldn't be made up if WEtv wanted to script it. BFV is absolutely 100% REAL!

As season 4 readies its premiere this August, I'm going back to my original decision to put a halt on the hit WEtv reality show 'Braxton Family Values'. This season seems to be the most EXPLOSIVE season they've ever filmed. In the sneak peek trailers we see the feud between Traci and Tamar still lagging on, the sisters sitting down discussing their joint family album, Traci threatening to press charges on somebody, Towanda releases furious anger as she breaks wine glasses and Tamar painfully stating this will be her last scene and season of BFV

DONT BELIEVE ME? JUST WATCH!
