MIDNIGHT SNACK: Beyonce’s Beach Blast

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-06-2009

Beyonce made a stop in Miami on her day off from her I Am tour today.  She took a dip in the ocean with her cousin Angie…and couldn’t hide her beach body under her clothes:

Fun times.  More pics when you read the rest…

Looks like this tour is making her shrink.  Still a fab chick though. *sneaking some Popeye’s to her via Fedex* They hopped on a private jet right after to head to ATL for tomorrow night’s concert.

Drake’s Has $4 Milli Of Young Money+Pleasure P.’s New “Under” Video+Another MJ Update

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-06-2009

Looks like Drake Drizzy just copped one of the best record deals any newcomer’s ever gotten. After a budding war amongst top labels in the game, Drake has reportedly signed with Lil Wayne’s Young Money records. Drake has been kickin’ it with the Young Money boys ever since he hit the scene, but he didn’t officially sign with them because Cash Money/Young Money is known for doing some shady ish to their artists. But Drake turned down Atlantic’s $2 milli offer to wait for a better deal. And he got it. Reports state:

It was widely reported that Drake was offered 2 million from Atlantic Records but turned that down to figure out his options a little bit more. It was also rumored that there was tension between Wayne and Drake due to the fact that Drake would not sign with him. Well I am hearing that Drizzy wanted to sign with Wayne all along but was concerned due to the fact that Young Money is an offshoot of Cash Money and Cash Money has the worst reputation in the business for fucking artists out of their money and overall career. However my intel into this situation told me that Drake has certain guarantees such as album release dates in his contract and also the fact that Weezy doubled the amount he was being offered and gave Drake 4 million just to sign! This is what ultimately led Drake to stick with the Martian.

Glad somebody’s got a good business head on their shoulders in this industry…

Here’s a few more behind the scenes shots from “Best I Ever Had” shoot:

And here’s Pleasure P.’s new vid for his single “Under”:

Awww Tia Mowry is fab in the vid. Loves her.


Tribute at the Apollo Theater

Christina Milian & The Dream TOPLESS For Final VIBE+Lil Wayne Brings His Daughter To Work…And Folks Are Pissy!

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-06-2009

Looks like VIBE went out with a bang:

Source: RapRadar.com

Christina Milian and her fiance The Dream are rocking the final issue of VIBE (they folded today) topless. Seemed like a trend for VIBE as of late. This one looks like a subtle shout out to Janet. Your thoughts?

So at Sunday night’s BET Awards, Lil Wayne and Drake performed “Every Girl”.  Probably not the best decision as the REAL un-edited word say “I wish I could f*ck every girl in the world” in the chorus a million times.  And of course, that’s what the songs about.  So aside from BET’s bang up job of editing, Weezy brings out his pre-teen daughter Reginae and her BFFs to dance around the stage during the song.  If you were outraged like us, we weren’t the only ones.  Here’s what celebs on Twitter were saying:

According to the Examiner:
“Overrall, the show was a big downer because… many things just seemed out of place. For example, Drake’s performance had Lil’ Wayne and his pre-teen daughter with other young girls on stage rapping along to “Every Girl in the World,” which is a song about having escapades with all the girls in the world.”

Twitter and Facebook became the main source of people revealing their disappointment of the performance. From celebrities to high profile magazines, everyone had something to say about it.

“Lil’ wayne + wanting to f*ck every girl + w/ young girls on stage = smh, pure mess. how did bet miss how inappropriate that was?! (TheSourceMag’s Twitter)

these girls onstage look a littttttle tooooo young to be the subject of this song. could be the red tutu (AngelaYee’s Twitter)

Okay I have a problem! Why are there 12 year olds on stage while Drake and Lil Wayne singing this song!! I as like is that a little GIRL????? and then I was like wait there are more lil kids! HUH?? (TiaMowry’s Twitter)

Drake/Lil Wayne performance really pissed me off by bringing those young 10 year old girls singing I would F ever girl in the world. (IPRMKTG’s Twitter)”

I hear folks are writing letters and ringing BET’s phones off the hook because of this ish right here.  Part of me is not surprised by the foolery.  The other part is just sad.  Oh wells….

For your own viewing pleasure.

NEWS: VIBE MAGAZINE FOLDS

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-06-2009

According to DailyFinance.com, VIBE MAGAZINE has folded:

“Vibe magazine, the urban-music magazine founded in 1993 by Quincy Jones, is the latest victim of the media recession. An assistant in the office of editor in chief Danyel Smith confirmed that the title is ceasing publication. No further information was immediately available. A call to Vibe Media CEO Steve Aaron went to voicemail.”

VIBE’s P.R. spokeswoman, Tracy Nguyen, said the Vibe staff was formally notified in a meeting at 2 p.m. and that she did not know how many people would be laid off as a result of the closure.

*LIVE COVERAGE* BET AWARDS 2009: The Show

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 28-06-2009

We’ll be updating this post as the show goes on. Live video footage from backstage is at the end of this post…

And some more:

Keyshia Cole performed with Monica their single “Trust.”  Interesting look for Keyshia.  Monica rocked the song.

Queen Latifah hit the stage with Mary Mary.

Lil Wayne hit the stage with baby and Drake–who tore his ACL so he performed sitting down.

Kerry looked nice accepting her first BET Award.

And Ciara sang “Heal The World” to tribute Michael.  Yeah….

More pics from the show:

Beyonce accepted an award.  Looking hot in a multi colored mini dress.  Even though it felt a little flnstone-ish.  Her hubby Jay performed D.O.A.  His official video for it that just aired wasn’t too shabby either.

Soulja Boy literally hopped up out the bed and turned his swage on…

KeKe Palmer flexed her pipes and belted out an MJ song.  Loves it.

Chaka had Estelle and LeToya Luckett taking notes.  Loved LeToya’s dress.

BBD and Keith Sweat brought the 90’s back!  One of my fave performaces.

And Trey Songz and Tyrese and Johnny Gill performed a tribute to the O’Jays.  A did a fab job.

11:37p EST: Janet Jackson just took the stage.  Understandably shaken but still solid.  She’s speaking about her family’s love for their son and brother.  And how much pain the family is in.  She also thanks everyone for all their love they’ve shown.  “I’ll Be There” tribute taking place now with Ne-Yo, Jamie Foxx, and others…

11:05p EST: Usher’s reps just sent this statement regarding him not making it back in time for the BET Awards even though he was trying to:

“It is with regret that I am unable to participate in the BET Awards Tribute to Michael Jackson on June 28th. When the BET Awards producers and organizers reached out to me to participate in the tribute, I was extremely flattered and humbled by the opportunity to pay tribute to the world’s greatest musical icon. Unfortunately, I am currently overseas and would not make it back in time to the Awards show. I look forward to seeing the show and I plan to work on a tribute to Michael Jackson when I return.”

11:00p EST: We’re trying to figure out why Lebron has his boys sitting next to him on the front row while his fiance/mother of his children Savannah is sitting a few rows behind him.  Congrats to him on winning Sports person of the year though…Diddy didn’t bring Assie to the event, but Dawn is sitting right next to him on the front row…We never want to hear Tiny or Toya speak again or promo their new show.  Ever.

10:41p EST: SPOTTED: Alicia Keys in the audience sans Swizz Beatz.  Kanye and Amber extra cuddly dancing to the O’Jays.  And a BET producer who took the stage during a commercial break to propose to his girlfriend.  Sweet…

10:09p EST: Keyshia Cole/Monica performed “Trust” and we’re wondering if Keyshia meant to look like MJ.  We’re also wondering if Chris Brown decided not to come and pay tribute because Hov popped up on the stage.  Wow @ Don Cornelius….

9:18p EST: Jamie, T-Pain, Snoop and Travis Barker’s “Blame It” performance:

Best of the night so far.  Hot.  And still LOL @ the Wanda/Shenanah Skank Robbers preview…

9:08p EST:

New Edition opened the show. I actually really liked the performance and “I Want You Back” tribute to Michael.

Lil Wayne won an award and brought all of N.O. up there with him as usual.

Ne-Yo performed his own tribute to Mike with “The Lady In My Life.”

Keri Hilson’s performance was ok:

The end had me in a *blank stare* though.

Jamie Foxx is killin’ it with the MJ tributes/impressions:

That’s true talent when you can make people comfortable laugh right after something so tragic. Loves it.

SPOTTED: Joe Jackson in the audience. Looking very touched by everything going on…
