Tuesday Throwback: #Janet- 'What have you done for me lately'

The Icon, The innovator, there can only be one--JANET JACKSON.  In light of Madonna's recent exploits for attention by subliminally bringing up Janet's Super Bowl incident, I think we should let Madge know that Janet is unfazed.  What has Madonna done, lately? Hmmm, her movie 'W.E.' didn't do so well at the box office and was panned by critics.  Now she has to enlist the flavor of the month Minaj to help sell her latest single---seems like someone is REACHING.....  Madge, is dope, but JANET is the DOPEST!!!! Tell 'em why J.....

#Madonna vs #Janet part 2- Madge SHADES Janet on #JayLeno!

Madge is busy in promo push for her upcoming SuperBowl Halftime show.  She stopped in on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to talk about the show and the new album and her movie, but in Madge fashion, she had to throw that whole 'Nipple' thing back in play yet again.  It's funny, how many times has Madonna shown her vagina or breast or gotten banned for some reason, and now she has this MORAL COMPASS that guides her? PLEASE!!!! SIT DOWN.  Madonna is a great entertainer, but the constant shots at other people like Janet and GaGa make her look desperate and attention-starved.  Enough already.  By the way did anybody go see her movie, 'W.E.'?  I didn't think so.  It BOMBED from what I heard... At any rate.. take a look at her clip from Leno.

More #Xfactor eXits! #PaulaAbdul & #NicoleScherzinger AXED as well!

The shake-up continues for X-Factor USA.  With the reports of Steve Jones' exit, more heads are set to roll!  Word is that Nicole Scherzinger will not be returning and fan favorite Paula Abdul has been axed as well!  And the rub of it all is that Simon personally recruited Paula to the talent competition and did not call her to let her know her pink slip was on the way.  She had to learn from a lawyer connected with the show.  Ouch.  I knew changes were coming, but to ax Paula too?  Nicole and Steve, I can see, but 'Paula Purebread' Abdul?  At the very least, Simon could have called his good friend to soften the blow.

Word is that Simon has not found replacements for the booted X-Factor alums.  The only ones left are L.A. Reid and himself.  Any thoughts on who Simon may recruit next????

4 tears in a bucket......

Drake says he will not respond to Common's jabs!!

Actor, turned rapper Drake has decided to take the high road and claims that he will not respond to any jabs or 'beef' towards him.  This comes after conscious rapper Common issued a series of subliminal and not- so subliminal jabs at the hip hop star.  When 'Nah Right Nation' asked the Canadian the question of whether he's respond to the 'diss' from Common, he had this to say:

No. Because despite how it’s been worded by him that situation is not a “hip hop moment” or a “battle for the sake of musical integrity”…it’s a ploy for attention around the release of an album. More than anything it was just disappointing cause what kid isn’t a fan of what Common has done for our genre. A guy who made such an incredible career for himself based off expressing genuine feelings about life and love is now targeting me for sharing my story.

I was actually surprised that Common took the approach that he did, seeing that he is a pioneer in a rap game that didn't really take too his conscious rapping at first.  Songs like 'The Light', and 'Come Close' are songs in the vain of what Drake is doing now, so it was a surprise that he would attack Drake for something that he has done in his career as well. 

I am sure Drake grew up listening to Common's music and may have even idolized the rapper.  I am sure it was a surprise to Drake that a person he looked up to would attack him in that way.  But at the end of the day, it is what it is, I suppose.  I would feel a little let down if a director or blogger or media figure I looked up to didn't receive me well after we met.  Hmmm, things that make you think.  Either way, Drake still manages to come out smelling like a rose in this instance.  WINNING????

Do you HEAR what I Hear? Is Estelle channeling MJB & Sade on new single, 'Thank-You'??

U.K. Chanteuse, Estelle has hit the pavement running in promotion for her upcoming release 'All of me'.  She just released a hot new single, the Akon-produced, 'Thank-You'.  This is a lush song about a love affair gone wrong and the lessons learned from that failed relationship.  Estelle's voice is some clean and pure, and when I listened to it the 1st time , i thought, 'Hmm, this sounds familar'.  Estelle's voice and delivery is hauntingly reminiscent of vintage Mary J. Blige with a hint of Sade thrown in for good measures.  I know I can't be the only person to think this.  As a matter of fact, fellow blogger and good friend of mine Brillion-A-Million was having this same discussion.  Hmmm, take a listen and see is you hear what we hear.


Compare to these CLASSICS!

Mary J. Blige-'Love no limit'

Sade'-'Cherish the Day'

I am sure these two ladies inspired Estelle.  I am sure somewhere online there is a demo version of 'Thank-You' that was shopped to Mary J.

Patiently waiting--Former J Record's Diva, #Olivia weighing her options, and drops NEW SINGLE! [video]

Olivia.  You may remember her as the 1st female signed to Clive Davis' J Records.  She was also the lone female on the G-Unit imprint.  Fast forward to 2012, 2 record deals later and a successful reality show on VH1, 'Love & Hip-Hop', the R&B diva is still patiently waiting.  The question has come up lately, 'Why can't Olivia get a deal?'  I am sure it is not getting a deal that is the problem.  Olivia has more talent in her pinky than some successful female acts out today.  No names need to be called, we all know there are some out there with less  cal prowess, than sex appeal, etc.  The singer, turned reality star is weighing her options and waiting for the right deal.  Olivia spoke with Big Tigger on his 'Live in the Den' radio show and basically cleared it all up.  She said there have been numerous deals on the table for her, but she wants to make sure that she finds the RIGHT deal for her.  Having been on 2 successful labels in the past, Olivia is wiser now and knows her self worth and is not going to jump at the first deal that is thrown her way.  Olivia just released the video for her new single, 'Walk Away', and by the looks of this hit, the phones will be ringing again.  The talent is there.  Take a look!

Shocker?!? Steve Jones OUT as #XFactor US host!!!

It may come as no surprise that Steve Jones is out as 'X-Factor' host!  Jones took to Twitter to announce that he would not be returning as the host for the talent competition's second season.

“I wont be hosting next seasons X Factor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show”

Jones did not say what reason led to his departure, but anyone that saw the 1st season can draw some conclusions.  Jones just didn't seem to fit the format of the show.  He appeared awkward at times and he lacked the panache say a Ryan Seacrest possesses to carry a show of that magnitude.  Some times his accent which in most instances can be endearing just came off as bland.  Needless to say, Jones is out of a job, which means the hosting gig s up for grabs.  Ahem, X-factor, call me.  I think I can free up some time on my schedule to fill those shoes. 
In related news, Ryan Seacrest's multi-million dollar contract is up with 'Idol' after season 11, so would'nt it be a power move is Simon Cowell snagged Ryan for 'X-Factor'?! That's be EPIC!  I mean he already snagged Paula.  Stranger things have happened....

While you guys are making needed changes, you can axe Nicole too.  Just saying....

Seinfeld Fans! 'Elaine's boss on 'Seinfeld', Ian Abercrombie passes away!

Fans of the grounbreaking sitcom 'Seinfeld' are saddened as character actor Ian Abercrombie passed away from complications of kidney failure over the weekend. Abercrombie was the British actor that portrayed Elaine's boss, 'Mr. Pitt' on Seinfeld.

Having started his career as a dancer, Abercrombie spent four decades acting on the stage, screen and TV, before his seven episodes on Seinfeld changed his life.

"Incredibly so," he told CNN in 1998. "I mean, I have been around as an actor for 40-odd years, and this show knocked me out of the ballpark."

As Elaine's boss, he said, "I was a pain in the neck. I was a hypochondriac. I was many things, and I just made her life so miserable. She wouldn't take the salt off my pretzels, you know. She brought me white socks … she did a lot of things for me, but she could never do it right."

The actor was 77.

Blige and Toni Braxton to 'bust a few moves' on the floor proving that you can indeed trust big butts and smiles.  Take a look!
