Chris Brown and Raz B Go At It On Twitter


Chris Brown and Raz B take it to Twitter, slanging each other in the mud. I do not need to reiterate in my own words what was said between the two, just take a look at it for yourself:

Kanye West, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj 'Monster' Music Video

Knaye West drops his new music video for the single 'Monster' feat Rick Ross, Jay Z, and Nicki Minaj. There is so much to say about this video, but after the jump:


 

Should I type my commentary in red blood runneth over? This video is spooky as hell, and does not devour any rumors that there is a cult-group going on in the music industry. Infact, this video storyline will just add more speculation and theories to that of the Illuminati running rampant in the music industry.

For real Kanye? Sex with dead women? Eating human flesh? Demonic entities? A Nicki Minaj with fangs in her mouth- playing around with another Nicki Minaj?#ICan't! I thought I saw the scariest thing in my when I watched 'The Excorcist', but this sh*t right hurr!...

Love Kanye, love the album, but this video makes me hate my MAC makeup kit now

Whitney Houston Places #34 On Top Grossing Tours Of 2010

http://s001.radikal.ru/i193/1012/8c/d0d81eff96db.jpg


Whitney Houston has a new reason to smile. Longtime legendary diva placed number 34 on top touring acts of 2010 list, grossing $36.3million, devouring any negativity in regards to her successful Nothin' But Love tour. Hate her or love her, the woman can still put people in concert seats. What is even more impressive about her placement on the list, is the 33 acts that came before her, are either young relevant artists who sells well such as Pink and Taylor Swift, or older acts who tour extensively all year long; every year such as Bon Jovi, AC/DC etc.
______________________________________________________________________________________________

Whitney hasn't masked a tour in over 10 years prior to her recent tour, and still was able to gross decently. These numbers from her tour does not reflect her Asian dates, merchandising, nor her private gigs, so it safe to say she grossed over $40million for this tour. Coming in on the list ahead of  much relevant acts such as Rihanna, Coldplay, Alicia Keys, and Rascal Flatts, is no fall feat.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
Imagine how high her numbers could had gotten had she toured the South American market such as Brasil (where her album and single, I Look To You sold well). Had she toured the American market, would had been an extra bonus. Congrats to you Ms. Houston, and we look forward to your future endeavors. Read the top 50 grossing tours of 2010 below:

Aretha Franklin has Pancreatic Cancer (says sources)




The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has Pancreatic Cancer according to sources and recent reports. This news comes after Ms. Franklin canceled a slew of concerts to undergo an unknown surgery back in November. Family close to Aretha confirms to Detroit's Fox 2 station, Detroit Fox News ,that the 17 time Grammy winner has cancer.

Ms. Franlkin recently released a statement saying:

"The surgery was highly successful," she said. "God is still in control. I had superb doctors and nurses whom were blessed by all the prayers of the city and the country. God bless you all for your prayers!" -Aretha

Ms. Franklin never disclosed as to why she underwent sudden surgery, but she did disclose it was for "medical reasons", Now reports are confirming that the Queen of Soul has Pancreatic Cancer, and less than a year to live.

This is a statement we wanted to post from a concerned fan, that speaks on how much power and influence Aretha has made, and the elite class she has been in the presence of:

"When you consider that Aretha Franklin has always made herself accessible during some of the most significant moments in American history such Mahalia Jackson's funeral, Rosa Parks funeral, Martin Luther King Jr.'s funeral, Jimmy Carter's inauguration, Bill Clinton's inauguration, Barack Obama's inauguration, etc. I will say now that if something befalls the Queen of Soul in 2011 (and I pray it doesn't) folks better represent her the way she has always represented". -NiceGuy

All of our prayers and wishes goes out to Ms. Aretha Franklin, friends, and family, for we know that God is the Ultimate Decider on our lives, and not Doctors.

Back in September, I personally named Aretha as one of the Ultimate Divas of all time, amongst others. Read that article here
