Songbird Mariah Carey seems to be blaming her manager and producer Jermaine Dupri for the poor performance of her current album.
Mariah’s unfortunately named album, Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, sold a measly 83,000 total albums in the US. That wasn’t good enough for the 45-year-old Diva who has 17 top ten albums to her credit.
After dropping her lesbian anthem single titled “She” last month, R&B Diva Keyshia Cole released the album cover for her upcoming studio offering, Point of No Return. Keyshia, who insists she’s divorcing her husband Daniel “Booby” Gibson, kicked off her “Point of No Return” tour in Rochester, NY, on July 12.
Singer Robin Thicke dedicated his current album, Paula, to winning back his estranged wife, Paula Patton. But so far his best efforts have fallen flat with his fans and Patton. According to early sales figures, Paula will move only 25,000 copies in the U.S., and has sold a paltry 530 copies in the UK.
Last night, singer Beyonce and her rapper husband Jay Z opened their much-hyped ‘On the Run’ Tour at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
Concert goers took to social media to complain bitterly about the 3-hour traffic jam outside the stadium. Some fans wondered aloud why they bothered to shell out $300 for tickets to the concert.
Once the Beyhive faithful made it inside the stadium, the traffic complaints gave way to complaints about Beyonce’s tardiness, her bridal attire, and how empty the stadium was.
After forcing their most loyal fans to trek all over yonder to see them perform live, Outkast will finally perform a concert in their native Atlanta.
Many of you complain that you’ve never heard British chanteuse Rita Ora sing — even though Google is right at your fingertips. Thanks to the wonders of technology, you can watch Rita’s live performance at Radio One’s Big Weekend in Glasgow this past weekend.
The Internet is buzzing about an odd Michael Jackson impersonation that was billed as the King of Pop returning to perform a new song in the form of a Hologram at the 2014 Billboard Awards. Whether it was hologram technology or not, it clearly was a Michael Jackson impersonation.
The (Caucasian) impersonator did not look like Michael and the body wasn’t his. The technology is here to bring Michael Jackson back onscreen — using an impersonator and superimposing his face over the impersonator’s face. But that’s not what we saw on the Billboard Awards last night.
