This is not funny, but it does reflect the mood of bloggers everywhere who have grown wary of Rihanna pushing the style envelope too far and failing to deliver the goods musically. I HATE the new look that Rihana's stylist has taken her in.
Rihanna's new single "The Wait Is Ova" dropped online today on Rihannanow.com, but if her new album, set for release on November 23, flops then her career is OVA.
A video posted on urban blogs all over the Internet yesterday purported to show old skool rapper-turned-Minister Ma$e 'bum rushing' his boss Sean Combs inside an Atlanta radio station last week.
The video shows struggling rapper Ma$e demanding his walking papers from the Bad Boy Records' CEO after bursting into the Ryan Cameron Show at V-103 while Sean Combs was live on the air.
The only problem is, none of the above is true -- and the implications of that video has rankled at least one higher up at the station who uncharacteristically reached out to Sandrarose.com via email yesterday.
The email was short, but sweet and straight to the point: the whole thing was staged by Diddy, Ma$e and a heretofore unknown blog called Shuddup.com.
The gist of the email, which I published below, is that no celebrity has ever been nor will ever be 'bum rushed' on The Ryan Cameron Show.
I called this a PR stunt yesterday and it feels good to be right again.
Here's the email:
Thank you... For being smart enough to know that nobody bum rushed anything on ryan's show and these fools just want site hits! [Ryan Cameron] told him when to come on
The insider, who asked to remain anonymous, indicates clearly in his email that Ryan knew about the stunt and even told Ma$e what time to enter the studio.
Dionne Bromfield, the British teenager whose only claim to fame is being Amy Winehouse's goddaughter, can't sing a lick. She's not as horrible as Ashanti or Beyonce, but her vocals are flat and would be better suited for background work. Clearly the only reason she got a record deal is because of Amy's influence. That's sad because she's cute and all.
Chris Brown posted these pics from the closed set of his "Transform Ya" video shoot featuring Swizz Beatz and Lil Wayne. Didn't anybody tell them that this track is lame as HAIL? Is anybody but Chris Brown's few followers on Twitter even listening to this garbage? The last time I checked, the track debuted at #52 on the charts.
The Internet is buzzing (at least on the urban blogs) about Rihanna's new track "The Wait Is Ova" which drops today at 11:23 a.m. You can kinda hear the song in this video if you crank up the volume. It sounds dry as hail. I'm not feelin' it and I really have my doubts that Rihanna can ever top "Umbrella" which won every music award under the sun.
I'm also not feeling this wack new style of hers. I understand her stylist is attempting to take Rihanna to another level, but she was fine where she was. Now she looks like something out of Flintstones meets the Terrordome. Also, if the rumors that I'm hearing about Rihanna are true, I'm done supporting her. Not that she cares.
I have one word for this Gucci Mane/Usher collabo: HAWT. I'd almost forgotten what a great R&B singer Usher is because, lately, the production on his own music has been so lame. Gucci and Usher have a smash hit on their hands with "Spotlight" produced by Polow Da Don off the highly anticipated album The State vs. Radric Davis coming in December!
I knew this heifer wasn't going to perform in Malaysia. At this point, Beyonce's career has been reduced to one publicity stunt after another. Nobody cares anymore, Bey!
Beyonce was supposed to perform at a venue in Kuala Lumpur on October 25, and the event's organizer released a statement confirming that a future date would be announced shortly, according to Access Hollywood. “The postponement is solely (the) decision of the artist and has nothing to do with other external reasons,” the statement read.
When performing in Malaysia, government rules require female artists to cover up from their shoulders to their knees, with absolutely no cleavage showing. Last month, the event organizer, Marctensia addressed concerns over Beyonce's typically risque wardrobe, saying “all parties have come to an amicable understanding” about costumes. Source
Former Xscape singer and Grammy winning songwriter Kandi Burrus has graciously agreed to participate in a live chat tomorrow right here on Sandrarose.com!
As you know, Kandi and the rest of her RHOA castmates will shoot the season Finale show tonight at an undisclosed location.
R&B Diva Monica and legendary rapper Mia X kicked off the Live Chats on SR last week, and they will make their chats a monthly feature! Last week's chat went very well considering it was the first one we ever did.
In the meantime, on occasion, surprise celebrity guests stop by, like Kandi (it was a surprise to me because I didn't think she would do it!)
Of course, that means Kandi will only answer comments from my registered members, although everyone else is free to lurk and read.
So get your questions ready and later on I will let you know the time of tomorrow's chat!
Special thanks to legendary industry veteran Lisa McCall for making it happen!
Barack Obama issued a new marijuana policy that will go into effect today in 14 states. The new policy means federal agents won't lock up pot smoking patients or their sanctioned medical weed suppliers.
Medical marijuana is so named because it relieves the chronic pain and other symptoms of terminal illnesses such as cancer.
Of course that means most drug spots in the hood, such as car washes and strip clubs, will now be converted to sanctioned medical marijuana suppliers. This is just the first step to legalizing marijuana in every state.
How is that Hope & Change working out for you now?
Are TLC members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, left, and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas auditioning for celebrity fit club? They sure look like it as they sucked in their tummies while performing in Las Vegas over the weekend.
The ladies joined Justin Timberlake and Ciara for "Justin Timberlake and Friends" charity concert in Vegas. Chilli has her own reality TV dating show airing soon on VH1. Hopefully, TLC fans will support their girl in her endeavor.
