WEEKEND WRAP-UP! Willow Has Something To Say To The Critics! Brandy Wants To Babysit Blue Ivy? + MORE!
Hey loves! I must say, this weekend has burned me out a little with so much sad news in the world since Friday but as I am still standing, it is my duty to give you all the celebrity news I can come up with. No worries, they definitely left us a little but to “chew” on.
For some strange reason, female singers are almost always asked about Beyonce and what she has going on in her life. Brandy is no exception and after her show in D.C., the JASMINE BRAND caught up with B-Rocka for an interview and some kind of way, Blue Ivy came up in conversation. After Brandy gushed about Beyonce’s braids, she said, “I’m like obsessed, I wanna babysit Blue Ivy. I wish I knew B enough so I could watch Blue Ivy, she’s so damn cute!” I mean, she’s definitely a cutie pie but how did the baby even come up in conversation? Brandy, please figure out a way to always get the conversation back to you and YOUR music.
Guess what? Another Rapper Arrested
I know, surprise surprise. Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky was arrested Thursday night after he and a friend got into a scuffle with two photographers in New York City, TMZ reported. Originally,Rocky and his friend were just having an argument with one person but when they noticed photographers taking pictures, they redirected their anger. The photogs received some cuts and bruises as a result while Rocky was arrested for attempted robbery. I can only assume he was trying to steal the cameras but that portion has been left largely unclear. Is it really that serious?
Willow Smith Is Not ‘Here’ For Any Naysayers
See, you all are about to make this 11 year old child “read you” for your criticism. Willow recently did an interview with Michael Yo and they discussed everything from music, her hair cut, her fake tongue ring and all the negativity she received (mostly from adults, of course). To the critics and probably the “hater” (you know kids love to call people haters when they don’t agree), Willow says, “…People have their own thing regardless. And, that is totally okay with me. If you don’t like me, if you like me; both are equally cool. I send love and positive energy to all those people in their lives. I hope they find where they’re meant to be but it’s kind of like don’t come here with that.” Welp, I guess she told US, huh? While I do see her point, she’s way too mature or something for her age but that’s not really her doing I don’t think.
Golden Brooks Back On The Small Screen
It has been awhile since we’ve seen any of of our favorite “Girlfriends” on television but that’s all about to change. Golden Brooks will be joining the cast in a recurring role when the second season of “Heart of Dixie” returns in the fall. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Brooks will play Ruby, a successful woman who returns to the small town of BlueBell and becomes fast friends with the main character played by Rachel Bilson. So good to see her back on television!
If There’s a Cash Money reunion, Count One Man Out
Former Hot Boys and Cash Money Records rapper B.G. has been sentenced to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and conspiracy to obstruct justice. This comes after B.G. (real name Christopher Dorsey) was arrested in 2009 in New Orleans with two other men and found to be in a stolen car and with weapons in their possession. B.G. initially had one of the other men arrested take the rap for him but after that fell through, he plead guilty but refused to cooperate with police. He began his bid immediately after sentencing last Wednesday.
Reggie Bush’s New Boo?
For some reason, the paps have been following NFL star Reggie Bush all over Europe and they finally snapped him in Paris coming out of Cartier with a woman who could possibly be his new boo. While she’s not been identified by name, all the gossip lovers are noticing that Reggie seems to have a type because this woman has features very similar to his ex Kim Kardashian. Oh Reggie, no matter where you go “she” always seems to follow you.
Introducing: CJ Hilton
If you’re a big fan of Raphael Saadiq, you may recall hearing CJ’s vocals on “Never Give You Up,” a song that also has Stevie Wonder on the harmonica. When I first heard CJ’s voice, I was immediately in love. I looked him up a little bit but didn’t really pay him any mind until a month ago when I was enjoying the song again. Imagine my surprise when I heard that voice belonged to a man who was only 23 years old! CJ is signed to RCA Records and so far he’s released a mixtape (The Package, hosted by DJ Driis aka Idris Elba) and he released his EP, Cold Summer in the Spring. The title track, produced by Salaam Remi (who is the EP’s executive producer), has a heavy hip-hop beat while still commanding the soul of CJ’s voice. You should also check out “So Fresh,” a single he has with rapper Nas. You will not believe his voice and will absolutely understand why seasoned R&B artists have co-signed him.
