“SINGLE MOM’S CLUB, which opens in May 2014, follows single mothers with varied backgrounds and experiences who cross paths after an incident at their childrens’ school. The mothers create a support group where they help each other through the challenges of motherhood as single women. Long will star as ‘Lydia,’ McLendon-Covey will play ‘Jan’ and Henao’s character is named ‘Esperanza.’ William Levy and Tyler Perry are playing the male lead roles.”
Musicians garner inspiration from all over, including the places they’ve been, paintings & portraits they’ve seen, and sometimes from sounds & songs performed by other musicians. When I first heard Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”, it seemed as if I heard it somewhere before. I was immediately drawn to the ballad with the haunting vocals and twisted bass line. Then it hit me…
It appeared that Beyonce’s inspiration for “Drunk In Love” could have came from this similar song by Keaira LaShae titled, “Drunk Love”. Watch both videos and you be the judge.
Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton & Leslie Mann get vengeful in ‘The Other Woman’. The film, also starring NICKI MINAJ, appears to be a rendition of ‘John Tucker Must Die’, but looks like it will be a funny movie all the same. Be sure to check out “The Other Woman”, in theaters on April 25, 2014.
I’m chillin’ on a Sunday evening, surfing the net, and I came across this video. I was really moved…
EliteDaily writes, “ABC News performed a little experiment at Denny Moe’s Superstar Barbershop for the hidden camera show “What Would You Do.” Utilizing three actors, the experiment was meant to show how average bystanders react to racism and verbal prejudice.
Two of the actors are portrayed in a relationship with the man being black and the woman white. As the white woman enters the barber shop, the third actor, Rachael, a black woman, immediately begins insulting her with outwardly racist comments.
After watching the video, it will be hard to deny that the results were more than inspiring. While some kept silent, there were three people in particular that spoke out against Rachael’s actions in their own way.”
This is what the world has been waiting for!! Drake Vs Kendrick Lamar Battle Rap On KOTD’s Battle League. This is so hilarious yet realisitic as f*ck! You’ll see other characters in the background such as Nicki Minaj, Birdman, Bow Wow, and Khaled on Drake’s side. And in King Kendrick’s corner, you’ll notice ASAP Rocky, The Game, Tyler The Creator, and even J. Cole standing behind the announcer.
This is an excellent presentation with the animated Drake sounding better than the real Drake. The verses Kendrick drops sound like exactly like lyrics he would say. This video makes you hunger for a REAL BATTLE now. Watch…
“Our friends at Blank on Blank have returned with a new, unheard, classic Tupac Shakur interview, which they’ve animated for your viewing pleasure. We’ve already shown you their Kurt Cobain interview, and they continue to give 90s pop-culture shine with these illuminating, animated interviews.”
Macklemore is a f*cking class act. Best concert I have ever EVER been to. I’m Speechless. What made it so amazing? I have a list of things. First off, Macklemore is an incredible, funny, kind, and amazing performer. There was also a surprise E40 appearance!!!! Check out the pics…

“RUNNIN’ by THE PHARCYDE with J. DILLA’s masterful production, frees my mind and takes me to a happy place. From the chorus to Slim Kid Tre’s harmonic lyrical freestyle in the middle of the song, you can literally get high off this hit without drinking or smoking anything. “RUNNIN” is the first single from The Pharcyde’s second album “Labcabincalifornia” in 1995. I wish this song was an hour long so I could just mellow out to it forever on repeat.
“A 90-second commercial for Beats shows off a new collaboration between Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar, and by the sound of it, you can expect a loud and energetic sound. The video also shows off the new Beats by Dre Studio headphones and the Beats Pill product. Check it out.”
Rihanna totally owns that whole 80′s rock Eurythmics vibe. The ‘What Now” video was released a couple weeks ago with already over 30 million youtube views. Regardless of her personal life, I feel that Rihanna deserved that ICON award she won recently at the AMA’s. Her artistry is very versatile as her sound transcends from reggae, to hip hop, to R&B, to rock and pop. Rather you’re a fan or not, you gotta give this girl some credit…music is in her blood and longevity is in her future,
LA TIMES – “Investigators are looking into whether speed played a role in the accident Saturday in Santa Clarita that left “The Fast and The Furious” actor Paul Walker dead.
The single-vehicle crash occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the 28300 block of Rye Canyon Loop. Deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station and the Los Angeles County Fire Department arrived to find a vehicle engulfed in flames. Two people in the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene.
The cause of the crash is under investigation, said Sheriff’s Deputy Kim Manatt. Few details about how the crash occurred were available.”
“Ye talks the “Bound 2″ video, the Yeezus tour, paparazzi and more. Charlamagne also confronts him about the perceived contradiction between his rants about being held down by corporate America while simultaneously courting them.” (NahRIght) I personally have to compliment Charlamagne Tha God for great questions.
Why in the world would they kill one of the most famous characters in animation history?? Brian Griffin made “Family Guy” great with his witty intellect and appeared as a central character in almost every episode.
Family Guy’s executive producer Steve Callaghan explained the decision to send Brian ‘on a trip to Belize’, telling E! Online: ‘This was an idea that got pitched in the writers’ room and it sort of caught fire, and we thought it could be a fun way to shake things up.
‘We started talking about what the next couple episodes could be and we got very excited about the way this change will affect the family dynamics and the characters.’
But rumor has it that the show’s creator, Seth MacFarlane, is just simply tired of doing the show. ‘Part of me thinks that Family Guy should have already ended. I think seven seasons is about the right lifespan for a TV series,’ he told The Hollywood Reporter.
“Family Guy”, however, has millions upon millions of fans…ALL hoping that Brian’s ‘death’ is a joke. Check out the video of Brian’s final moments. It’s still hard to believe it has the end this way.
SNOOP, “As I look up at the sky
My mind starts trippin’, a tear drops my eye
My body temperature falls
I’m shakin’ and they breakin’ tryin’ to save tha Dogg
Pumpin’ on my chest and I’m screamin
I stop breathin’, damn I see demons
Dear God, I wonda can ya save me
I can’t die Boo-Boo’s bout to have my baby
I think it’s too late for prayin’, hold up
A voice spoke to me and it slowly started sayin
“Bring your lifestyle to me I’ll make it better”
How long will I live?
“Eternal life and forever”
And will I be, the G that I was?
“I’ll make your life better than you can imagine or even dreamed of
So relax your soul, let me take control
“Close your eyes my son”
My eyes are closed”
Actor Tristan Wilds aka MACK WILD, known for his role of Michael Lee on the critically-acclaimed HBO series “The Wire”, is now focusing on music. His first single, “Own It”, is a surefire hit from his upcoming album, “New York:Love Story”. Wilds is signed with Grammy Award-winning producer Salaam Remi’s (who’s worked with powerhouses like The Fugees to Amy Winehouse) ‘Louder Than Life’ label. This song is dope, one of a kind., a nice club song, and cool music to listen to. I love the beat too and I think Wilds is a very talented singer and actor.
