Another day, another copyright infringement accusation. This common issue seems to be the norm among industry insiders. The latest artist to be accused of “track-jacking” is will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas. According to The Huffington Post, house music producers Mat Zo and Arty are claiming that the hipster ripped off his “Let’s Go” track featuring Chris Brown from them. The song does sound very similar to the Mat Zo and Arty-produced dance track, “Rebound.” Now the producers are claiming that the song was never properly cleared by Brown and will.i.am for use.
This of course rubbed Chris the wrong way, as he maintains that he is an innocent party in the matter.
So far there has been no official news of legal action being taken against will.i.am or Chris. Despite Will’s Twitter mentions being clogged with insults regarding the allegations, he has yet to publicly respond to the controversy. Although he and Arty felt slighted by Will’s alleged track-jacking antics, Mat took to his Facebook page, asking fans to chill out with the insults they’ve been hurling Will’s way and to stop making racist comments.
“I really and truely appreciate all the support you are giving me and Arty in response to Will I Am’s copyright infringement. However, this doesnt excuse the horrific abuse youre sending the way of Will I Am and Chris Brown, and it especially doesnt excuse being racist. Thank you,” Mat wrote.

“Hey Lucid Lovers!
So someone asked me to write about love. Whoa! I thought to myself, this is going to be interesting! LOL! Anyway, I got to thinking about my love life and the journey it has taken me on. This advice I am going to blog about might be right for you, but it might be wrong for you. All I can do is be honest and hope it helps or at minimum you take something away from it.
When I first started going through my divorce, my initial reaction was I need to date someone. That rebound guy, someone to distract me from my real feelings. When I got that, I realized it was a temporary fulfillment. What I really needed was to heal my soul and my heart so I could genuinely be open to honestly and whole-heartedly truly loving again.
Love can be the must amazing feeling in the world and the most hurtful as well. It truly is a funny thing! I feel the key to finding love is to be happy with you first. Make sure you are at a place in your life where you are content and your heart is open to love. Love requires work and compromise. I also feel like when you least expect it, love will knock you over. Focus on yourself; work, family, friends and whatever else makes you happy and when God feels you are ready he will bring you the perfect companion.
Trust is a huge component of making a relationship work. It is vital not to bring your past experiences of a bad relationship into your present relationship. Everyone deserves a fair chance until they do something to make you give them the side eye. Ladies, you know what that means without me going into detail.
Talk, talk and more talk! Communication is key to a thriving, loving, healthy relationship. Nowadays everyone gets caught up in texting. A relationship cannot survive when a “new message” alert is your lifeline. Pick up the phone and listen to each other’s voice. You cannot feel true emotion through a text and things can be taken out of context. Even when you are in a long distance relationship try and find time to Skype or Face time if your mate is not in the country. I am an advocate for long distance relationships. Absence makes the heart grow fonder and when you see the person you don’t take them for granted.
The important thing about love is to be honest and keep it fresh. Don’t fall into a routine. Surprises are always nice and they let your mate know they are appreciated maybe a love letter, a bubble bath or some home-baked cookies. Just a little something to put a smile on their face!
And ladies remember how you got him is how you keep him! So with the flowers soon blooming, I hope you all SPRING in love..
‘Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.’ – Mother Teresa
Love and Lucid kisses,
“You’re my rebound.” Ever heard these words? No? That’s because no one says them. To say them would be in opposition to the whole point of rebounding, which is to deny and avoid your feelings about a breakup. No one will ever admit you’re their rebound boo, so sometimes you just have to look for the signs and in the end, decide if you’re okay with that status. For instance…
He encourages you to go away
You mention a trip you’ve been invited on, or a school or job you’re considering applying to in another city, and he enthusiastically encourages you to go. Essentially, he never wants you making any decisions based on him, nothing that will make you too attached—like staying in his town to be with him. Keep an eye out for signs that he clearly does not want to be a part of your long- term plans.
As the saying goes, the best way to get over a new man (or woman) is to get under a new one. Of course, you don’t literally have to get up under the person (unless that’s your style – no judgments here); you could just date someone new and kick it. Most of us do it; even (and maybe, especially) the celebrities all go through a breakup and want to get past it by playing around with someone new…and quickly. In their cases, some have lasted and some have not!
Take a look at the list we came up with. Have you ever had a rebound? Was it for the short term or has it worked out for you?
The desire to text an ex can feel like an unstoppable force, especially if you’re intoxicated. Whether liberated by liquor or emotionally needy, here are some sobering thoughts to make you put down that that phone….
(News One) – Black women have returned as the nation’s strongest performing demographic group in official monthly unemployment figures. The release of today’s US Bureau of Labor Statistics data reveals that black female unemployment declined for a consecutive month in June, falling 5 per cent from a rate 12.4 per cent in May to 11.8 per cent in June.
(AP) — The economy grew at a solid 3.2 percent pace during the first quarter of this year as consumers boosted their spending by the most in three years.
The Commerce Department’s initial estimate of the economy’s performance in the January-to-March quarter, released Friday, provided more evidence that the economy is strengthening. It marked the third straight quarterly gain as the United States heals from the longest and deepest recession since the 1930s. Still, growth was weaker than in the fourth quarter of last year, when the economy grew at 5.6 percent.
(Fortune) — The economy has made a sharp U-turn in the past couple of months, and better days for American businesses and workers are around the corner.
But don’t take my word for it. Take Warren Buffett’s. And Jamie Dimon’s. And Jack Welch’s. All three tell me that in the past four to eight weeks, they’ve seen a real change in their businesses, and that indicates better news for the nation’s economy. They should know.
