Now if this isn't PETTY. IT'S SO PETTY that we are even ALMOST over it...but not QUITE. This whole 'BEEF' or WHATEVER you want to call it between Monica and Brandy is getting to be SICKENING. At Brandy's tribute on this year's Soul Train Awards, allegedly she changed some lyrics to her song that may have been a JAB at Monica. I didn't feed into it much..I was just ENJOYING the HITS.
BUT NOW it appears the TWO frenemies are beefing over Whitney Houston! Yes. It's that PETTY. And BRANDY'S MOM, Sonja Norwood JUMPS IN NOW! During the most recent episode of OWN’s ‘Where Are They Now?’ Monica shared a personal story about her relationship with Whitney and referred to her as a ‘fairy godmother.’
WE ALL KNOW how much of an IDOL Whitney Houston was to Brandy--she even thanked Whitney as she was accepting her Soul Train Lady of Soul Award this year. So MAYBE these comments about HER idol from Monica RUFFLED Brandy's feathers a bit, so she took to SOCIAL MEDIA to post some words REMINDING US that Whitney and she SHARED a REALLY special relationship.
At this year's Soul Train Awards, Teddy Riley REMINDED US why he is and will always be THAT music INNOVATOR! He is CREDITED with creating that style of music called 'NEW JACK SWING' that was PREVALENT in the 90's. Riley had a HUGE impact on MUSIC and has worked with the BEST and the BRIGHTEST spanning the genres of POP, ROCK and R&B. He was a KEY MEMBER in not one, not two, but THREE HUGE groups, Wreckx-N-Effect, Guy, and Blackstreet. SO OF COURSE, Soul Train UNDERSTANDABLY gave him a FITTING TRIBUTE!
We are still talking about the tribute--Riley hit the stage to cover a mash of hits like "My Prerogative'' and "Rump Shaker." Riley was also joined on stage by Bobby Brown, V. Bozeman, Doug E. Fresh, and Tito Jackson, Guy, just to name a few. But NOTICABLY ABSENT were any members of Blackstreet. Did anyone notice this besides me? I mean Teddy helped craft hits with Blackstreet like 'No Diggity', 'Joy' and 'Before I Let You Go' to name a few, but none of these songs were included. Of course if he were to cover all of his hits we would still be watching the tribute today, but with such HUGE hits like these, one would scratch their heads as to why at least ONE wasn't FEATURED, right?
