Lily Allen Set To Release Sheezus!

lilyallen

She’s baaaaack!

Lily Allen will release her third studio album, entitled Sheezus, on May 6th on Warner Bros. Records. An album pre-order launches today.

Sheezus is the British pop singer’s first album since 2009’s acclaimed It’s Not Me, It’s You. The album finds her re-teaming with her long-time collaborator Greg Kurstin (Tegan & Sara, P!nk), except for on the title track, which was produced by DJ Dahi, and “Air Balloon,” which was produced by Shellback.

Critics have already weighed in on “Hard Out Here,” with Esquire exclaiming: “Job done, then: back with a bang,” and NME noting that she is “striding back in after four years out of the game.” Entertainment Weekly called the track “a booming critique of pop’s double standard” and “a lot of fun.”

At the end of 2013, Lily released two songs simultaneously – her cover of Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know,” which reached No. 1 in the U.K. and the download-only track “Hard Out Here,” which charted in the British Top 10 that same week.

Since emerging in 2006 with her iconic debut single “Smile,” Lily Allen has gone on to sell over five million albums worldwide. Her huge success in the U.K. not only quickly spread around the world but also helped shift the musical axis toward young female artists.

Her talent as a songwriter was acknowledged in 2010 when she won three Ivor Novello Awards. That same year she announced she was taking a break from making and performing music. In 2013 Lily returned to the studio, having spent the previous three years raising her young family and establishing her own record label.

The track-listing for Sheezus is as follows:

Sheezus
L8 CMMR
Air Balloon
Our Time
Insincerely Yours
Take My Place
As Long As I Got You
URL Badman
Silver Spoon
Life For Me
Hard Out Here

Anyone else excited for Lily Allen’s Sheezus?

Gemini Wired: Get Plugged In

wired

The issue of bullying has broadened in this digital age to include all forms of social media. How this impacts children these days cannot be undermined or ignored.  R&B artist Gemini Wired tackles the topic of bullying in his latest track ‘What Now’, which discusses bullying and the repercussions of its actions.

 

 

Gemini Wired speaks from self-experience on this topic, and the song was written to find ways to prevent it, how to spot it, and the best ways to recover from it once it has occurred. The corresponding video is an inspirational one that is meant to uplift and enlighten.

 

Gemini, hailing from Boston, began performing as a child, as both a dancer and a singer, heavily influenced by musical acts like The Black Eyed Peas, M.I.A., and Rihanna. These are just some of the examples of the eclectic mix that drives her own musical output. After more work on television and countless websites, Gemini is focusing on an upcoming EP, kicking off her campaign with ‘What Now’.

Beyonce Shares Photos Of Recent Jamaican Vacation And Blue Ivy

We all know how hard Beyonce and Jay-Z work, but you know what? They certainly play harder! It seems to be the family motto.

While out on the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Bey has taken some time off to enjoy the green land of Jamaica and she shared some photos of her and her family enjoying the beach life and the sun.

Yes, Blue Ivy is getting bigger and keeps on looking more like her daddy every single day.

Yes, Jay-Z is still sporting his bootleg Tom Ford jersey.

And yes, Blue Ivy is still being treated as if every day is her birthday.

Oh to be Blue Ivy…not a care in the world. She has no idea what kind of world she’s gotten into.

Bey will soon be heading back to work as her world tour is set to make stops in Germany, Holland and Spain.

Ke$ha Is No Longer Ke$ha!

kesha

Kesha is out of rehab and is no longer all about the money…or at least not when it comes to her name. Kesha has dropped the $ from her moniker. But there is reason behind the madness!

TMZ is reporting that Kesha wants a fresh start after her 60 days in rehab to treat her eating disorder and that now her Ke$ha moniker is no longer appropriate for the woman she wants to be.

So from here on out, we need to refer to the pop star as Kesha. No money sign. Just Kesha.

The good news is that Kesha is said to be spending a lot of time with a therapist who will continue what she calls a work in progress AND she is also following the advice she got in rehab. That advice? To get rid of the negative people in her life who contributed to the problems in her life that led to the eating disorder. And she should! Everyone deserves to be happy and it looks as if Kesha is feeling better on the outside. Hopefully she feels the same way on the inside.

We got your back, girl! Keep on keeping on!

Justin Bieber’s Rolling Stone Magazine Story Highlights Pop Star’s Fall From The Top

justin-bieber

I saw Justin Bieber on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and thought, ok…the kid looks not so much like a baby anymore and hmmm, I am interested to see what kind of interview they were able to get since the Biebs seems to be plenty busy with things other than music. Sizzurp, anyone?

Well, to celebrate his 20th birthday, he landed the cover and according to their website, Rolling Stone is instead focusing on the hard fall of Justin Bieber. Seems legit because yes, it IS happening and maybe this article will snap the Biebs right back into reality? Or not…but, hey you never know!

Via Rolling Stone:

One of Justin’s wildest nights went down at a Miami strip club called King of Diamonds Gentlemen’s Club.
Bieber puffed a G Pen weed vaporizer and blew through the $75,000 in small bills his bodyguards brought for him in the VIP room, accepting lap dance after lap dance. The occasion? The January birthday of Bieber’s pal, rapper Lil Scrappy. Two days later, Justin was arrested for drag racing in a rented Lamborghini.

Insiders blame Bieber’s dad for encouraging Justin’s bad behavior.
Bieber’s 38-year-old pop Jeremy split with Justin’s mom when he was a toddler, but has reappeared in a big way. “His father’s not a great influence,” says a source. “They’re almost not like father and son — it’s more like two best friends.” Jeremy was in the strip club with Justin, enjoying the overflow of his son’s parade of strippers, and was also present when Bieber was busted for drag racing (he was accused of helping block off traffic).

As early as 2010, Bieber began to show signs of stress.
Justin broke down in tears backstage one day, bemoaning his lack of privacy. “If you want the Michael Jackson career, you have to grasp that you are never going to be normal again,” his manager Scooter Braun told him.

Justin Bieber’s wild decline: a timeline of the Canadian idol’s spiral

Three authority figures confronted Justin after his night in jail – but that didn’t slow his wild behavior.
After his night in jail, Bieber left Miami for Panama, with his gal pal Chantel Jeffries. Usher, Bieber’s mother and Braun flew to Panama to have a serious talk about his the singer’s behavior, shipping Jeffries back to Miami. A source close to the Bieber camp said the trip wasn’t an intervention, but “a conversation, reminding him of the people who care about him, and to consider things to do about it.”

After the non-intervention, Bieber and his dad took off on an even more out-of-control trip.
Justin and Jeremy rented a private plane to take them from Toronto to Teterboro Airport outside New York for the Super Bowl. According to a leaked incident report, the pair were so verbally abusive to a flight attendant, she hid in the cockpit with the pilots. The pilots were so overcome by the weed smoke, they had to wear oxygen masks to fly the plane.

In other words, his dad is enjoying the life his son is living too and he certainly hasn’t grown up himself. But oxygen masks to fly a plane because the air is hazy? Now that is just damn scary. They are just lucky they got from point A to point B that day.

So what happens from here on out? We sit and watch ever so patiently with popcorn in hand.

There’s A Reason For The Madness: Chris Brown Is Bi-Polar

chris-brown-love-more-video

There is a reason for all the cray cray-ness that spews out of Chris Brown on a whim. According to new court documents, Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Well, this definitely explains a lot. Wow.

Brown was in court yesterday for a progress hearing and documents were filed by the facility where Brown just completed 95 days of anger management therapy.

The legal documents also indicated that Brown was self-medicating inappropriately. Um, ya think? The facility writes, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.” The letter says Chris is now on meds for the bipolar and other conditions.

Let’s see if some meds help even his temper out.

According to the letter, Breezy has learned relaxation exercises to calm himself and he’s tested negative for drugs, including weed, since he’s been there. And apparently he’s doing really well, working hard and being complacent.

Well I hope that he is getting better for his own sake, for pete’s sake. He’s had a rough go of it.

Meet Tommy Lee’s Wife To Be SOFIA TOUFA!

sofia-toufa

Meet Tommy Lee’s wife to be Sofia Toufa! I never thought that Tommy Lee would marry again, considering it seems as if he always had a soft spot for his ex Pamela Anderson. But it appears as if Toufa has stolen his heart.

And Tommy Lee has popped the question. Lee made the announcement of the engagement by introducing his wife to be to his more than 430,000 Twitter followers.

Even though Tommy is twenty years older than his fiancee, he believes that Sofia is the one he will be with for the rest of his life.

He posted via his Twitter, “There comes a time in a mans life when you just know your partner is for LIFE!! Say hello to my fiancé and soon to be wife @SOFIofficial.”

So who is Sofia Toufa?

Well, I’ll tell you this…she isn’t a gold digger or so it doesn’t appear so. Toufa has a career of her own as a singer. According to Wikipedia,

Sofia, also known as SOFI, is a German dancer and singer, who is well-known in the music industry. Wikipedia states that: In addition to her solo career, SOFI has provided vocals on tracks from EDM artists including Deadmau5, Moguai and Savoy … In 2009, she has been touring the world as back up singer for Britney Spears on her “Circus 2009 World Tour” … Toufa has also worked with Fall Out Boy, Will.I.Am, Butch Walker, The Von Bondies, Tommy Lee and Nelly Furtado. SOFI originally began her career at age 13 with her music group Danacee and signed under the Def Jam label in Germany. Toufa also co-choreographed the music video for Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” and she was later hired to help choreograph, sing, and dance on Lavigne’s “Best Damn World Tour” in 2008.

Sofia will be Tommy’s fourth wife, as he was previously married to Pamela Anderson, actress Heather Locklear and Elaine Bergen (neé Starchuk). It should also be noted that he was also engaged to Prince’s former wife Mayte Garcia for two years but they never made it down the aisle.

Tommy Lee and his wife to be Sofia Toufa began dating in 2009. So there is hope, people! This could be it (as long as Pamela Anderson stays married to Rick Solomon).

Marc Anthony On Friendship With Casper Smart, “He fulfills a very very very important role”

2012 Winter TCA Tour - Day 11

Apparently Marc Anthony is totally okay with Casper Smart taking on the role of Jennifer Lopez’s lover and fill in daddy for his kids. And that is great that there is no “bad blood” between the two men.

Via Extra TV:

“Extra’s” AJ Calloway sat down with Marc Anthony, who opened up about his relationship with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend, Casper Smart.

Anthony said he doesn’t understand why people are surprised that he and Smart get along. “I don’t know what they expect, but Jennifer and I have a responsibility to the kids and so does Casper. He fulfills a very, very important role. My children love him and respect him and so do I.”

Marc continued, “I get it, he gets it, we get it… we really bonded. He’s a really good guy, solid guy.” The singer jokingly added, “Until he f**ks it up, that’s my story.”

Anthony also talked about twins Max and Emme’s upcoming 6th birthday. “We have a big one. It’s at this place that we rented out with trampolines and all that good stuff.”

Marc’s love for children is apparent in his work with Maestro Cares Foundation, which benefits homeless and neglected children in developing Latin American countries. Anthony, who was at the First Annual “Changing Lives, Building Dreams” gala for the foundation, explained, “They are my kids… I have 105 kids now.”

Lil Kim’s Baby Daddy Reveals Gender Of Baby!

mr.papers

Lil Kim’s baby daddy Mr. Papers is sure happy as heck to reveal himself. After confirming that she is in fact pregnant, we were starting to wonder if Lil Kim was still with Papers or if this was just a one time fling. Obviously this baby bump is real and Mr. Papers is basically shouting from the rooftop that this baby is his.

And he even revealed the gender. It’s a BOY!

He told Radaronline.com, “That’s my baby… He’ll be taken care of,” Mr. Papers told Radar.

Even though he isn’t married to Lil Kim, he did say that they are dating. “We together,” Papers said.

As for Kim? “Kim is doing great. That baby is going to be well taken care of… rocking Tom Ford, Versace — even the stroller will be designer.” Well, let me tell you something…hearing that sure makes my heart feel better about this whole situation.

Hey Mr. Papers, let’s just hope the baby comes out healthy first. Then we can worry about the Tom Ford and Versace. Mmmkay? Here’s hoping Mr. Papers has that paper and TIME to take care of this little baby boy once it arrives. I’m sure all Kim wants is a man to be around for her baby. She’s got the money to buy the kid what he needs.
