Traces of COCAINE found in #WhitneyHouston's Hotel Room!

The police investigating the death of Whitney Houston recovered traces of cocaine in the Beverly Hills hotel room where the Pop icon was found dead.

Sources are not saying just how much of the substance was found but that there was "white powdery remnants". The substance was tested and it was indeed cocaine.

At the time of her death, reports said that no cocaine was found in the room, but coroner spokesperson Craig Harvey noted that cocaine metabolites were found in her system leading them to conclude the singer was a chronic user.  This gave cause for them to dig deeper.

A tragic end to a promising life.  The 48-year old star had struggled with drug and alcohol use for many years prior to her untimely death.

#Usher names NEW ALBUM! To be released in June!

Usher gave his fans just a taste of what is to come on his 7th studio album, with the sultry, yet dance-worthy 'Climax'.  Now the 'Prince of Pop' is ready to give his fans even more.  Mr. Raymond has named his new project and issued a solid release date as well.

The new album will be called 'Looking For Myself' and it's scheduled to impact on June 11.  'Looking' will be the follow-up to 2010's 'Raymond v. Raymond', and will include production from of course Diplo, Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, Max Martin, and Salaam Remi to name a few.

So what can we expect on 'Looking'?  Usher gave some insight that may give us an idea of what he is melding together.

"Traveling all around the world, music sounds different.  There's many different genres ans when you see R&B, and Pop, and house, as well as electronic come together, that's the reality of what music is."

Well said Usher.  So we can hope to expect a wholesome blend of all these genres and more.  Usher never disappoints so at this stage in his career, why would he start now.

Thoughts on #NickiMinaj's 'Starships' on American Idol!??? Did she SOAR, or BOMB?

My email and Twitter were set ablaze last evening after Nicki Minaj's performance on 'American Idol'.  I must say, her performance had a very polarizing effect.  The comments ranged from, 'Dreadful', to 'Prolific'.  So, I had to see for myself.  One commenter said the performance was, 'the worst' she had ever seen from rap's reigning 'Queen'.  So after further review, I will give what I thought about the performance.  But you look at it first and tell me what YOU think.

2123292223 by YardieGoals

Hmmm, I think it was pretty good.  I mean, what did you expect?  IT is a POP song.  It stirred the crowd, there was loads of energy and the artist stayed true to what she is branding these days-- POP!  Was it a stellar HIP-Hop moment, not so much.  But then again it's not a HIP HOP song.  Minaj is showing that she does not have to live inside of the conventional box where she has to deliver the traditional run of the mill rap song.  So for it's intended audience and purpose, I think she hit the mark.
'Pink Friday Reloaded' hits shelves on Tuesday!

#Rick Ross WINS his NAME back!!!!

Rick Ross won his case today!  Ross, Rozay, Bawse but mainly Rick Ross keeps his moniker intact.  The L.A. County Superior Court totally shut down the did from former drug dealer, 'Freeway' Ricky Ross.  "Freeway" filed a suit against Rick Ross, claiming ownership of the name.  Unfortunately for him, the judge threw the case out citing 'Freeway' had no case.  So another victory for the Miami rapper!

Throwback Thursday: #TheNeptune Sound via: #Kelis, #ToniBraxton,#Phillysmostwanted, #Nore, #BritneySpears & #Mystikal!

I feel like going back --way back..back into time.  Well maybe not that far back.  The posts today will spotlight some of my favorite throwback jams.  Back when the economy was good and music was even better!
Let's go out of this UNIVERSE today! Let's go to NEPTUNE and revisit 'The Neptune Sound'!
The Neptunes are a record production duo consisting of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, who are credited with contributing the sound for many successful hip hop, R&B and pop artists in the late-1990s and 2000s. The Neptunes' sound is a distinctive brand of off-kilter, stripped-down electronic funk with sounds from Middle Eastern and Asian music including percussion and woodwind. Pharrell sings and (later) raps on records and appears in videos, unlike his production partner Chad, and sometimes vocal partner Shay Haley, who tends to stay behind the scenes.



Stay tuned!

The debate over the brutal slaying of Florida teen, Trayvon Martin is reaching all walks of life.  It is even spilling over onto the House of Representatives floor. Democratic lawmaker Bobby Rush donned a hoodie and was escorted out for violating a rule that prohibits wearing hats on the House floor. The hoodie is fastly becoming the emblem for protest at the police's handling of the Martin case.

Take a look!

#MarioLopez shows off BUFFED BODY on Miami Beach after ex-wife slams him for being a 'Liar' & a "Cheat"!

Barefoot on the beach: The Extra presenter later took off this shoes and went for a refreshing dip in the ocean

Mario Lopez, a self-confessed fitness fanatic,  was recently spotted working out in Miami, swimming and jogging.  The 'Extra' host seemed unfazed after being SLAMMED on 'The Wendy Williams Show' by his ex-wife. Last week his ex wife former Miss USA Ali Landry called Lopez a 'liar and a cheater' on the popular syndicated talk show.
'I had heard something right before the wedding. [Mario] swore that it was not true, but I had that feeling in my gut, ' she said
'All of my family was flying in – it was a destination wedding – and I really should have put the brakes on it at that point, but I was afraid.'

'I confronted him and he still – to this day – denied it and never apologized. It was horrible.
The two tied the knot on April 24, 2004 in front of 50 guests outside Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and annulled the marriage two weeks later.

Whether he is a cheat or a liar, he definitely doesn't cheat his body when it comes to his work-out regime.

#ChakaKhan assembles All-Stars for #TrayvonMartin Tribute: 'SuperLife'

Music living legend, Chaka Khan assembled an all-star list of celebs for a Trayvon Martin tribute! In their hoodies along with Chaka was Eric Benet, Kelly Price, and Luke James, V. Bozeman on vocals, and actors and actresses like Angela Bassett and her husband Courtney B. Vance, Terry Crews and his wife, Rebecca, Loretta Devine, Eva Marcille, and Boris Kodjoe.  The tribute is a raw video of the entertainers in the studio together wearing shirts and hoodies in the slain teen’s honor and announcing, “I am Trayvon Martin. Chaka Khan said the purpose of the song is:
“to raise awareness in children and adults and everybody that you can’t judge a person by what he’s wearing.
“I really feel strongly about our children, period, and their safety,” she said. “We’re concerned about children’s safety.”
The project literally just came together over the weekend. Chaka Khan said within 48 hours everyone came out to Henson Studios in Hollywood to be apart of the effort. Since everything happened so fast there hasn’t been any mention of making the track available for purchase or where any proceeds might go, but the funk singer wrote this on her website:
“Celebrities are privileged beyond belief to have a public following. We have explored and exploited media to our own benefits. Now it’s time to exploit media for the benefit of humanity as a whole. As purveyors of content and media, we need to use our voices to stop injustice at the site of its origin.”
Peep the video:

#PiersMorgan invites #Madonna to his show, then BANS HER FOR LIFE!

The people over at 'The Piers Morgan Show' must have gotten their signals crossed.  Piers' people invited the pop icon to his UK chatfest, then Morgan goes on Twitter Tuesday and issued this statement:

"Welcome to Twitter.  You're still banned from my show. Love Piers X."
Madge's manager responded "Really" with a letter attached showing that Madonna was indeed invited to a sit down with the journalist.

Now Morgan is saying Madge is banned from both of his shows.  It is unclear what the 'bad blood' is between the two.  Sources close to the developing story say that Madonna is unsure why Morgan is mad at her and states she doesn't even know who he is.

Funny! Who makes this stuff up!?

WayBack Wednesday- #TheBraxtons -'Slow Flow'- Live

Before The Braxton's were a household name, due in part by Toni's stellar career and the family's new-found fame from their hit reality show, 'The Braxtons' were a group. Trina, Towanda, and Tamar, struck out on their own and had a moderately successful run as a group. Take a look at a live perormance of one 'Slow Flow'.

#Tebow Tug of War!? #Nike Sues #Reebok over merchandising rights!

Nike filed a lawsuit against Reebok this week. According to Nike, Reebok's new Jets merchandise with Tebow's name on it is in violation of a 2010 Nike-Tebow endorsement deal.

Nike released a statement about the matter:
"We have filed a complaint relating to unauthorized use of Time Tebow's name on New York Jets related apparel. Nike is authorized and licensed to use Tim Tebow's name on products.

Hmmm, this could get ugly really quick.

Tim Tebow's jersey is one of the most sought after jerseys in the NFL now and before the trade.

Beauty 'Queen' BOOTED from 'Miss Universe' for being born MALE!

This is about to rattle a few cages, a blonde bombshell was booted from a beauty pageant for not being born FEMALE!
Get out: Transgendered Miss Universe Canada finalist Jenna Talackova has been disqualified  

The Miss Universe Canada organizers threw out Jenna Talackova when they found out she had undergone surgery to become a woman.
The transgendered contestant had already successfully reached the finals in the Miss Vancouver pageant before she was banned from continuing in the competition.
Although the pageant organizers described Talackova as a ‘real girl’ they disqualified her arguing that the rules state that each contestant must be a ‘naturally born female.’
According to Denis Davila, the national director of Miss Universe Canada, Talackova claimed on her registration form she was born a female.
But becoming suspicious Davila confronted the 23-year-old about her sex change and the contestant admitted she was actually born a male.
Despite her pleas to stay in the pageant her confession meant that she was pulled from the contest that same day.
This dicsision has people up in arms already, calling for Talackova to be reinstated into the competition. Donald Trump owns 'The Miss Universe Canada' pageant, but there was no word from him on the situation yet. But I am sure he'd tell him, 'You're FIRED'!

Beauty queen: Jenna Talackova, fourth from right, has competed in a Miss Universe contest before
From the looks of this photo, it seems there are several more contestants that need their 'Adam's Apples' checked as well.  I see about 5 that may need their applications reassessed. LOL.

Jenna, America's Top Model is casting!

Zimmerman says #TrayvonMartin Provoked him!!! New Police account of fatal shooting.

The Trayvon Martin case is getting more and more intense. A new police account of the Trayvon Martin shooting today claimed the teen suddenly punched George Zimmerman in the face, knocking him to the ground, and then bashed his head into the sidewalk several times, provoking Zimmerman to fatally shoot the unarmed teen one month ago in Sanford Florida.

Looking at the stature of Martin in comparison to Zimmerman's it begs the question, 'Are you serious?' Zimmerman is about twice Martin's size, so if this new account his factual, wouldn't Zimmerman have the upperhand on the teen if a 'fight' indeed did break out?

I am not sure I can buy this new account of the fatal shooting and if that did play out in that way, was he justified in shooting the youth?


Star Tracks: #BobbyBrown released from Jail after DUI arrest!

Arrested: Bobby Brown was arrested by police officers for driving under the influence of alcohol earlier today. He was booked into jail but later released after $5,000 bail fee was paid  

Former 'badboy', and ex-husband to the late Whitney Houston seems to have gotten himself into a bit of trouble with the law. According to the booking sheet the 43-year-old was pulled over Reseda, California at 12:20 PM PST. After being arrested Brown was taken to Van Nuys jail when he was booked in at 1:22PM PST.

Brown is said to have been drunk at the time of his arrest, with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher.
Don't fret, Brown is no stranger to the law and he has since been released after posting $5,000 bond.
