There was a little concern over how well Chris Brown would do at last night’s results show for Dancing With The Stars, where the singer was scheduled to perform live. The producers were worried that the audience’s response might not be so kind. Well, Chris did perform his smash hits “Forever” and “Yea (3x)” along with “Beautiful people”.  
How do you think he did?

Rihanna talks Chris Brown




Singer Rihanna speaks of Chris Brown in Rolling Stone Magazine. Rihanna tells Rolling Stone magazine her decision to lift the court-ordered restraining order against Chris Brown was to make things less difficult for Chris in his career.
Rihanna tells the magazine:

“We don’t have to talk again ever in my life. I just didn’t want to make it more difficult for him professionally,” Rihanna says what Brown did on that night in 2008 was “a personal
thing” and that “it had nothing to do with his career.” “Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can’t perform at awards shows – that definitely made it difficult for him.”
But “you can never please people,” she says. “One minute I’m being too hard, and the next minute I’m a fool because I’m not being hard enough.”
Other tidbits:
 Rihanna also shared some racy quotes on what she likes in bed.

“Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your shit. That’s fun to me…I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned – you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. I’d rather have him use his hands. I think I’m a bit masochistic. [***the condition in which sexual gratification depends on suffering, physical pain, and humiliation]. I love feeling like I’m somebody’s girl. I think that is common in people who witnessed abuse in their childhood.”
What do you think of the mouthful that Rihanna has said?

Here’s the latest single from the lovely Jlo, titled “I’m into you” featuring Lil’ Wayne. She seems to be on her way to a strong comeback. This track has a great Latin/ reggae feel and it’s quite different from “On the floor”, which landed Lopez her first top 5 hit in 8 years. Anyone expecting Jlo to follow a trend and stick to a formula that returned her back to relevancy might be thrown off with this one. This seems like it could be winner. Check it out?

Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E expected to land at #1

Chris Brown may be telling all his nay –sayers “look at me now”, since the latest numbers according to Hits daily double have Fame placing at #1 while selling 273,346 copies. Despite some negative attention after his Good Morning America incident a week ago, the promotional trail for Fame has paid off nicely. Last week Chris hit single “Look at me now” saw an increase on the Hot 100, making its way into the top 10 at number 8. This is his first in 3 years since his single “Forever” peaked at #2 in 2008. It’s certainly a reason for Chris (along with his fans) to celebrate.
Do you think F.A.M.E is showing a lot of promise so far?

Janet Jackson Up-close and Personal Tour Review (Atlantic City showing 3/25/11)




Janet Jackson is on a 35 city world tour. She’s made scheduled appearances to the East coast, performed several dates overseas in China and will wrap things up over in the West coast and in Europe by April. I’ve seen this woman grace the stage just last year in a sold out arena seating 70,000 at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. Janet is one of those superstars that always seem so untouchable, similar to her late outstandingly great brother Michael.  So imagine how it feels to witness someone so larger than life in such an intimate setting. It was all so surreal to say the least. Janet is one of the very best to entertain on stage and is in a league of her own. How does one describe the show that Janet puts on? My best way of explaining it is to compare it to a night of ecstasy with a superb lover.
When you first lay eyes on Janet as she enters the stage, your eyes are fixated on her striking silhouette as the lighting makes you aware of her presence. Janet is curvy, yet petite and wearing an ensemble that is quite alluring. She’s more than easy on the eyes. Her body is wrapped in latex and she has her best assets showing. Then she’s off to a dynamic start. She open with Pleasure Principle and looks vibrant and energetic. You see her hunger, you feel her aggression. She is passionate and domineering, not taking any prisoners. Janet doesn’t crack a smile, her game face is on. Janet fiercely struts back and forth confidently across the stage commanding everyone’s attention. Your energy is high and she possesses a certain power over her audience. She breezes through her first session of songs: “Control”, “What have you done lately” and “Feedback” and believe you me all you want is more. More Janet! She is making you say her name. Fans are screaming- “Janet”! She has you in the palm of her hand and after an incredible first round she’s off and running to come back later with another dose.
She has the crowd waiting in anticipation for her. You feel like it was one huge rush that your sobering up from. Janet is once again in high demand. The crowd is chanting “Janet”, “Janet”, “Janet”! …Everyone is feeling the kind of excitement in the air that makes you want to pinch yourself. Instantly she returns and like an experienced lover whisking you away again to be lost in her world. She is now playful, singing hits like: “You want this”, “Miss you much” and showing you her “Nasty” side. It’s hard to sum up what one thing drives you so wild about Jackson, she’s such a professional at what she does. She has great showmanship and every mood of every moment appears to be spontaneous, but the strategic thinking artist knows exactly how to set the tone. Janet’s smile is contagious. The interaction with her dancers is friendly. You are enjoying yourself and feeling giddy almost. It’s not a worry on your mind. Janet is providing the fun and she’s relatable and inviting in this segment. You’re realizing that the music is making you feel good and Janet is proving herself to be everything she was from the start of your journey with her.
When Janet’s performing, she’s the director. You have no choice but to sit there and marvel at this fascinating woman as she works you like a pro, exploring every side there is to her on her stage. Finally it comes to a point in the show where things slow down. The seductress in Janet comes out and she’s tantalizing in numbers like “I get so lonely”.  Janet is delivering whether she gives it to you fast or slow. You are mesmerized and watching her move with such great precision live and in the flesh, it’s making your pressure rise. Janet has to be the sexiest artist you’ve ever seen, period! It’s turned off and on like a light switch. Janet then gives you moments to see her sensitivity and vulnerable side. She is gentle and… providing so many reasons for you to fall in love with her as she’s cooing to you on stage. It feels like a soft voice in your ear. She’s singing sweet “Nothing”‘s and reminding people how nice it is when you “Wait a while”.  The veins are jumping and yes, the vocals are live where it counts. She sings beautifully, like an angel. Janet is like Christmas; you’re unraveling so many presents and discovering each and every one of her special and unique gifts.
After this segment a rejuvenated Janet once again emerges with another wave of thunder bolt electricity, Janet’s back to finish the job. “Scream”, “If” and “Rhythm Nation” are highlights these are a few songs that get you going again. That magic starts happening and it’s another glorious round.
Eventually she cools you off finally with tunes like “Make me” and “Together Again”, the tribute to her brother feels like a celebration and you leave on a great note instead of feeling emotional. All you think of is Janet’s awesomeness. You leave exasperated … and satisfied!

Chris Brown arrested


News just broke that artist Chris Brown has been arrested due to his violent outburst after his interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.  According to TMZ, the singer was enraged after being asked about the infamous incident concerning singer Rihanna. Brown did try to redirect the focus and place it on his album “Fame”, that’s in stores today.
TMZ reported:
We're told after the interview, Brown freaked out, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup became alarmed and called security.

We're told Brown was out of control, and one source present tells us he smashed a window in his dressing room, and the glass shattered and some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway.  ABC security tells TMZ ... the window was shattered with a chair.

We're told by the time security rushed the area, Brown had ripped off his shirt and left the building, blowing off another performance he was supposed to do for the ABC website.

And sources say ... on his way out of the building, Brown confronted a segment producer, got in his face and stared him down.   People from the show got in between Chris and the producer to diffuse the situation.
Remember -- Brown is on probation for the felony beating and he's required to obey all laws.

UPDATE 6:49 AM PT:  Brown just tweeted, "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for their bulls**t."

UPDATE 6:59 AM PT: Brown has already deleted the previous tweet ... and added a new one that reads, "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"

UPDATE 7:48 AM PT: Glass workers just showed up to fix Brown's handiwork.

Wonderwoman

Finally word on the David E. Kelley’s ‘Wonder Woman’ remake is surfacing. NBC unveiled its first image of Adrianne Palicki as the super heroine to the public. And the reception is pretty lukewarm.

Palicki's costume appears to be skintight blue latex pants with a full red bustier. Instead of Wonder Woman's trademark red boots, this look instead rocks blue ones. The outfit is finished off with a pair of silver cuff bracelets and gold lasso.
EW.com reports that NBC promises that if the pilot is picked up, it will be a non-campy take on the DC Comics character--quite different than the 1970s version. In addition to Palicki, Elizabeth Hurley and Cary Elwes have joined the cast. Are you interested?

She admitted to planning to retire from the business by the time she turned 30 years old in the British edition of Cosmopolitan. While Beyonce may have doubted her lasting impact on the music world, it’s fair to say that she’s very much still in her prime.  Matter fact the dynamic star has now become even more ambitious and hungry to do more. “Now I’m nearly there I can’t believe how much more I want to do”. “I never imagined I’d have as much success as I’ve had. I thought it would be great just to have a record out”. Beyonce goes on to speak of how humbled and grateful she is for her success; “I’ve never imagined the extent of what I’ve achieved. I never imagined the awards, the movies… I still can’t believe it. I’m grateful for all of it and don’t take it for granted. When I do something I try to do it as well as can”.

Janet Jackson Signs Film Production Deal with Lionsgate

There ‘s a certain poetic Justice taking place recently, now that Janet Jackson has inked a deal with Liongate to select, develop and produce a feature film for the independent studio. That’s just another great outlet for the entertainer to express herself in yet, an additional form other than her new book of memoirs “True You”, performing live on tour, recording songs and creating classic music videos. A deal with Lionsgate was a natural fit. Jackson has starred in three Tyler Perry films – Why Did I Get Married, Why Did I Get Married Too and For Colored Girls. She also starred in John Singleton’s 1993 drama Poetic Justice.
Mike Paseornek, Liongate president of motion picture production and development, says the studio recognized Jackson’s instinct for great stories. “She is a powerful on – screen presence, with a vast audience, and we believe she will be an equally powerful presence behind the scenes,” Paseornek says. “We are honored to be able to provide a home for her ideas, passion and immense talent.”
In terms of the film projects she might pursue, Jackson says she is drawn to diverse material. She says she is particularly captivated by the film Noir.
This is very exciting news; I personally can’t wait to see how Janet’s vision on the big screen pans out. She’s obviously continuing to grow as an artist in everything she’s involved with. What do you think the future holds for her?
