It would seem that Virginia has something to prove. Timbaland and Chris Breezy are working together on the comeback for CB. I don’t have much more to say other than people telling me that both are looking to make a comeback of sorts.
Oh and the reason why Chris Brown didn’t perform, according to a new rumor, is because of Jay-Z. Well, I know I said that yesterday, but I am saying it again. According to one of Chris’s dancers, Jay-Z threatened to boycott the show and not perform if they had Chris Brown performing. They said everything was 100% set to go too. In the context of MiJac, CB was more important to the night. On the flip side, he’s also an admitted assaulter of women and it’s just too soon to look past that.
The final word on this rumor really seems to be that Covergirl, the show’s most involved sponsor, was about to withdraw their support if Breezy was involved. As you know, Rihanna is a spokes person.
I am not sure, but I am hearing that Drake was robbed or somebody attempted to rob him while at the BET Awards. If that’s the case, then things are getting hectic for Drizzy. What they are saying is that the rapper was out in LA for all of the rehearsing and stuff for the Awards and somebody ran up on him. Now, my source was actually very protective of Drake and refused to divulge and other info. They basically said that both his back and leg are injured.
Didn’t he get robbed in Toronto too? Drizzy walk with security and stop the Su wu or whatever talks playboy. And to the rest of the Dot, lets not rob our own, especially before they blow LOL. Screwface capital indeed. – Verse
VIBE magazine has shut down.
The magazine was launched in 1993 by music industry legend Quincy Jones and it served as as widely revered urban magazine.
“On behalf the VIBE CONTENT staff (the best in this business), it is with great sadness, and with heads held high, that we leave the building today,” said Danyel Smith, former Chief Content Officer of Vibe Media Group and Editor in Chief of Vibe.
“We were assigning and editing a Michael Jackson tribute issue when we got the news,” Smith said in a statement released to press. “It’s a tragic week in overall, but as the doors of VIBE Media Group close, on the eve of the magazine’s sixteenth anniversary, it’s a sad day for music, for hip hop in particular, and for the millions of readers and users who have loved and who continue to love the VIBE brand. We thank you, we have served you with joy, pride and excellence, and we will miss you.”
In the 90′s, VIBE experienced meteoric success as a business and an outlet for urban journalism.
It has ailed under the ownership of private equity firm Wicks Group of Companies, AOL reported.
The magazine had seen a dramatic reduction in ad pages and circulation.
Earlier this year, employees were put on a four-day workweek and other cuts were made such as scaling back to 10 issues per year.
There is speculation that the magazine will transform into an online-only entity.
Its coming blog family; I can feel it LOL
These two together would be too much madness!
This is why Ghost has the people!
(Ok…you can’t see much, but you can hear Ghostface’s enthusiasm as he sings along to his favorite Michael Jackson classics while onstage in Melbourne Australia, just one day after MJ’s death. Thanks to Modiika.)
Dwele shows his musical prowess with a creative dedication
(thanks to Cordell to sending this to me…Dwele recomposes Human Nature dolo…so cool to watch! And the pose at the end, lol!)
Thanks Miss Info!
Robin Thicke also shows love to MJ. Its a world celebration of a lost legend!
Now the umteenth final, offical Drake signing. Draks is signed toYoung Money/Cash Money/Universal Republic.
“Mixtapes are a movement. For some, giving away music could mean much more than trying to sell their tunes — but Drake played the game right. He started giving away his mixtape So Far Gone earlier this year, and the word of mouth spread with fans, his peers and record-company executives: a recent New York concert found [Warner Music exec] Lyor Cohen in the crowd, standing among screaming fans, along with Kanye West and Talib Kweli.
“Well, the wait is over: After weeks of speculation, Drake has chosen to go with the home team and sign with Lil Wayne’s Young Money Records, according to a source close to the situation. The deal breaks down as a joint venture between Young Money and Cash Money, with Universal Republic distributing. Drake’s management was adamant that he should be viewed as an independent artist, although Universal will distribute the project.
“Today is a definitely a comfortable day for me, having my team now that’s been in place for a couple of years. It’s just a great day,” Drake told MTV News recently in New York. “It’s something new, but it feels familiar.”
Over the weekend, there was a huge rumor that Chris Brown was going to perform in a dedication to Michael Jackson. Well, that rumor was supposedly a reality until the last minute. I was told that, because of Jay-Z’s huge relationship with Rihanna, he wouldn’t permit the young domestic abuser in the place to be – even for MJ. Now, I don’t know if Jay-Z truly has that sort of power over BET. Another theory seems a lil’ more realistic. BET just didn’t want the controversy of Chris Brown, who just plead out to felony assault, to be the hallmark of their event. Time will tell, but I think Chris Brown would have pushed the Awards Show well over the top.
I still remember the one of his performances where he was jumping from table top to table top; crazy!
I’ll let them speak for themselves. Pops was a little ……. strange. He plugged his new record label amidst questions about Michael Jackson?!
Out of respect for MJ, I will remain silent.
DR. Richard Florida waxes poetic on a unified social fabric and the importance of one’s literal place in the world.
