Rihanna and Drake Are EXCLUSIVELY Dating!

drake-rihanna-1

Well it seems as if Rihanna may have finally decided that nice guys don’t need to always finish last. Drake is getting a full time chance with Rihanna and I’m kind of loving it.

Multiple sources are saying that Ri and Drake have gone from casually hooking up to SERIOUS dating. Both stars want to hang out with each other as much as possible, or at least as much as their schedules will allow them to. In other words, when they’ve got a hot minute, they want to be with each other.

Drake has been touring Europe and Ri has been there quite a bit supporting him and has been seen almost every single night with him since she got there.

We all know that Drake has it bad for Rihanna as he once declared his love publicly for the Diamonds singer in his Rolling Stone interview calling her the “ultimate fantasy”.

See peeps, dreams do come true! I just wonder how long this will last this time around. And how long before Ri starts getting back into Breezy’s bed (if and when he gets out of jail, that is).

Jason Derulo Reveals His Next Single Is A Collaboration With Snoop Dogg

jason-derulo

Now that Jason Derulo has some new music out, he’s on a roll and now we just got word that Jordin Sparks’ man is collaborating with Snoop D O double G. But, even more shocking is the fact that he and Jordin are NOT engaged to be married.

Via our friends at Extra TV:

“Extra’s” Renee Bargh was backstage with Jason Derulo, after the singer performed his hit song “Talk Dirty to Me” on the premiere of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Derulo named all the artists he collaborated with on his new album, “Tattoos,” saying Snoop Dogg was the one he was most excited about. “I was really dying to collaborate with Snoop. I really wanted to do something like with an icon like that… it’s my first time doing something with somebody I consider a legend.”

Jason revealing, “It’s actually my next single, and I’ll give you the exclusive. It’s called ‘Wiggle.’”

The singer also recorded “Marry Me” with girlfriend Jordin Sparks, but admitted the song is not necessarily a sign of engagement. Jason smiled, saying he will propose “when the time is right, when the stars are aligned. You just wait for that right time.”

“Tattoos” will be available April 15th.

Okay, so wait a minute. So Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks are NOT engaged? What the heck. Then that whole “Marry Me” song is just a big fat bummer dude.

Instead of a big fat ring, at least she can watch this every damn day if she wants to…

Marksman Media/CelebrityVIPLounge Exclusive: Inside the 9th Annual Jazz in the Gardens

ANEFFKING_KELLYR_JITG9

As in years past, for the first word in the news backstage on stage at Jazz in the Gardens, keep it locked here. This year’s festivities featured some of the best and brightest in the musical realms of jazz, R&B, hip-hop, and soul yet again.

The standouts?

LL Cool J proved that his rapping prowess has not diminished in lieu of his latest acting endeavors. The New York native came down south to MiamiGardens to spit some of his most classic lyrics from his many platinum albums. Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, one of the biggest touring acts around, showed why they are still a powerhouse vocal group to be reckoned with. Old school rhythm and blues lovers ate this group up from the first note to the last ballad. But the perennial favourite of the weekend?

None other than former Destiny’s Child singer (and former X Factor judge) Kelly Rowland. The songstress proved that she is no longer in the shadows of Beyonce, but a formidable show(wo)man in her own right. Backed by an impressive band and wearing fashion forward pieces that women will be emulating in mere days, Rowland had the crowd eating out the palm of her manicured hands.

In the coming days, we will be back with snippets and video from the weekend festivities.

Stay tuned…

Chris Brown To Be In Jail For At Least 30 Days!

chris-brown-boxing-pose

Chris Brown is in jail after being kicked out of rehab, but get this, he will have to STAY IN JAIL until April 23rd! Brown had court today in a bid to win release, but this time he was shut down!

For all of you not in the loop, Breezy was arrested on Friday after he got kicked out of rehab. The judge had ordered Brown to stay in rehab while he decided Brown had violated his probation in the Rihanna case. After he got kicked out of rehab, Brown was immediately arrested.

In court today, TMZ reports that “the judge said Chris had an “inability to stay out of trouble.” Hizzoner was especially concerned at a statement Chris made at the rehab joint, “I am good at using guns and knives.”

So Chris will sit in jail until April 23rd! A probation violation hearing will take place on April 23rd and if he is convicted he is in deep doo doo.

Possibility? Four years of jail!!!!

So many are wanting to know why he was kicked out of rehab. Well, apparently there were three reasons.

1. He violated a rule made specifically for him…stay at least TWO feet away from every woman in the facility.

2. Initially refusing a random drug test. He eventually did take the test and it came back clean.

3. He talked smack about rehab during a group therapy session.

BOOM!

So as of the moment, Chris Brown is sitting behind bars!

I wonder what Rihanna thinks…

Chris Brown Arrested, In Jail With NO BAIL!

chris-brown-boxing-pose

Welp, Chris Brown has been arrested, is in jail now and is being held WITHOUT bail! Sucks to be him about now. But as I always say, Karma is a fierce bitch with an attitude and eventually, even if you are a celebrity with a lot of money and power, will track you down…kick you in the cooter…and give you the biggest wedgie that will have you going commando for life.

TMZ is reporting that Brown violated a judge’s order by getting kicked out of a rehab facility he has been living for nearly four months. It is being said that Brown was thrown out of rehab for violating “internal rules”. What rules those were, we are not for certain at this point. But, they must have been bad enough for him to get kicked out!

The same judge that has been dealing with Brown in the case with Rihanna ordered Chris to live in the Malibu rehab facility for 90 days to get anger management therapy, and he did complete the program earlier this month. However, because of the Washington D.C. assault incident, the judge modified the order for Chris to stay in the facility a little longer. The deal included if Chris left rehab, he would go directly to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200!

Brown was previously thrown out of a different rehab facility for throwing a rock at his mom’s car window.

It will be interesting to see what happens next!

CELEB SPOTTING: Lady Gaga Taking In Snoop Dogg At SXSW

lady-gaga-sxsw-photo.jpg

Each year the festival manages to become even more extravagant so it’s no surprise that there have been more star-sightings this year than ever! Last night at the Jägermeister house was no exception. Jäger obviously knows how to throw a party and not only festival-goers flocked to see Snoop Dogg perform, but Lady Gaga herself! Who knew she was a Snoop fan girl? Upon arrival, she was spirited away to the VIP area but was seen enjoying #RespectTheWest tour, drinking Jägermeister, and chatting with a bartender before heading out 15 minutes later. At least her Jäger buzz would last all night!

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Hit The Dance Studio And Dance Seductively TOGETHER! (VIDEO)

justin

Well apparently Justin Bieber’s attempts at wooing Selena Gomez back into his life and heart may be working as Selena seems to be falling for Justin’s most recent efforts.

He made a post via Instagram the other day with a photo of Selena with the following caption “most elegant princess”. Sweet, right? Eh, not so much. But…

Rumor has it that Bieber sent Selena over $10,000 worth of flowers and that may have done it for her as she agreed to meeting up with Justin for breakfast AND a dance studio.

Justin posted the following two videos to Instagram of him and Selena dancing seductively to John Legend’s “Ordinary People.” Even though Justin soon deleted the videos after posting them, you all know that whatever you post on the Internet does NOT DIE! The videos live on through…YouTube, y’all! And we have them here for you to drool over, gag over or use as dart practice.

Check out the Biebs and Selena getting their groove on in the studio together below!

What they did after this? I can pretty much guess. They probably went out for Starbucks again. Ahem.

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.
