Diggy Tweets About His New Sneaker Line

Chivalrous Culture 2

Diggy previews the red/black pair

It seems that Diggy Simmons is proving that he’s not just a rapper but a serious fashion mogul. Earlier today he gave fans an exclusive glimpse of 2 sneaker designs from his forthcoming Chivalrous Culture brand via Twitter. The trainers look hot, I quite like the ‘Forest colour’ pair. Hopefully, they’ll be available over this side of the pond (but I doubt it somehow).

Kanye Turns His Back On Electro?

14 Apr

Kanye West

If the latest rumours about Kanye West ‘taking it back to basics’ are to be believed, then it seems like Mr. West and the electro beat are no more. In a recent interview with The Red Bulletin DJ Premier said: “Kanye’s new album is strictly hard beats and rhymes. He’s totally done with electro. You’re gonna be surprised by what you hear.”

Kanye‘s fifth studio album, ‘Good Ass Job’ which is due for release this summer will feature top names such as Drake, Q-Tip and his new protégé Big Sean. Sounds interesting, but I guess we’ll see if going back to basics means he’s getting rid of that dreaded Auto-Tune.  Hmmmm [Kanye Shrug].

Ciara

Yesterday at the “Death At A funeral” film premiere, Ciara revealed some facts about her new album which will drop this summer.

“It’s called Basic Instinct. I executive produced it with Tricky and Dream and I worked very hard on it and they did to. It’s been so much fun so when you get the record you’re going to get a really fun vibe, an even more sensual side and also confident and cocky…. I got such an attitude on this record, but in a fun way.”

Check out the footage below.

Note: “Death At A Funeral” stars Martin Lawrence, Danny Glover, Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall. Interesting cast.

It seems like it’s eventually happened. The cast of Glee are finally doing a Lady Gaga episode.

Check out the behind the scenes of the Gagalicious episode below.

Winehouse Wants Usher

10 Apr

Amy Winehouse

The Daily Star is reporting that absentee soul singer, Amy Winehouse has requested a duet with Usher for her new album.  A close  source supposedly revealed:

“Amy personally called Usher after asking her people to get his number. He was shocked to hear some Cockney girl chatting away but finally believed it was Amy when she sang for him. Amy wants to release a song with him and her god-daughter Dionne is desperate for the pair to perform together.”

If this is true then this will be an interesting collaboration. Maybe Amy can help to revive Usher’s ailing title as the king of RnB.

We Will Have To Wait A Little Longer For Drake

8 Apr

Drake

Ever since it was announced that Drake’s highly anticipated album “Thank Me Later” would be dropping on May 25, everyone breathed a sigh of relief…

But now it turns out that we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer before we get our hands on a copy as the release has now been pushed back another month to June 15th.

Drake who recently unveiled a new track named “Fireworks” during the Pennsylvania leg of his tour, blamed the delay on the fact that he wants to make some ‘finishing touches’ to the album. So I guess we’ll just have to keep waiting patiently…

nicki Minaj

Shortly after the excitement of Rihanna’s  announcement that Ke$ha and lady of the moment, Nicki Minaj would be joining her for the ‘Last Girl on Earth’ tour, it seems that Nicki Minaj is no longer on the line up.

Nicki who was scheduled to support Rihanna on the 25-date tour to promote the R Rated album, used her Twitter account to break the news to fans, stating that she wanted to concentrate on her album.

“Barbz I’m sorry 2 say I will not be going out on RiRi’s tour. I’ve decided 2 use that time 4 the completion of my album. Hope u understand.”

Fans shouldn’t feel too disappointed because Nicki definitely needs to get her studio game up considering she just released that hot mess “Massive Attack”.

Rihanna Dresses Up In PVC To Perform on American Idol

8 Apr

Last Night Rihanna made an appearance on American Idol to plug her forthcoming “Last Girl on Earth” tour which will also be supported by Ke$sha. Rihanna donned a black futuristic-style PVC catsuit to perform her track “Rockstar 101”. I’m sure the figure-hugging outfit caused a few heart attacks throughout the living rooms of America.

Here are some behind the scenes flicks of Ciara on the set of her latest video, “Ride It” featuring Ludacris. Ce Ce is looking hot! I’m loving the boots but what’s up with all these RnB/Pop divas wearing overly intrusive leotards (if you catch my drift)??!

Weezy Thanx Fans

Weezy Thanx You

Lil Wayne has launched a site to thank his fans for their letters of support whilst he’s been in jail. It seems like Weezy will be posting letters and he’s kicked off his blog with a letter entitled ‘Gone ’til November’ and has also thanked individual fans personally. The site even has a countdown to his release (currently 215 days).

He opens the letter by saying:

“During my prison stint, I want my fans to know I love you. I want all of you to know that I appreciate all the mail I get, and this is my way of saying thank you. The F is for Family, Friends, and Fans.”
