New Video: Chris Brown Featuring Ariana Grande

AriGrande

 

Looks like another name has been added to the rooster of people who will be featured on Chris Brown’s upcoming album X.

Breezy took his Instagram account to share a photo of him and Ariana Grande rehearsing for the music video. “First time back up en pointe in years,” said the former ballet dancer. “I missed it so much but my toes certainly didn’t #blisters #bloodytoez.” Although the title of the song has not yet been released the two shared some lyrics.

“Dug a single seed into the ground, I hope it grows / In a year or two if you’re around, you’ll see a rose.”

Earlier this month, Chris shot a video for his banger “Loyal” featuring Lil Wayne, French Montana, and Too $hort at Universal CityWalk.

Other names such as Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, and Nicki Minaj will be featured on Breezy’s album which hits stores May 5th.

Da Brat Ordered To Pay 6.4 Million For Assault Of Cheerleader

DaBrat

 

Back in 2007, rapper Da Brat was arrested and pled guilty to aggravated assault  and was sentenced to three years in prison, 200 hours of community service, and 7 years under probation, for smashing a rum bottle in former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader, Shayla Stevens in the face. The altercation happened at producer Jermaine Dupri’s Studio 72 nightclub.

At first Da Brat was ordered to pay up 3.7 million for Shayla’s past and future loss of earnings, but the jury slapped Da Brat with another $2.7 million dollars as an added punishment totaling $6.4 million dollars. Shayla’s attorney defended his client saying that not only does she have a lifelong scar on her face, she was made a brain damage survivor after Da Brat’s attorney B.J. Bernstein tried to get the sum reduced.

In 2011, Da Brat spoke about the incident and stated:

I think I was supposed to sit down. I believe everything happens for a reason. [I’m] not saying the incident was okay, but I believe this was God’s way of trying to get my attention. My temper was terrible. So if it wasn’t this, it would’ve been something else.

One expensive lesson !

Or Nah ? Snoop Dogg Gets A French Manicure

Snoop

Snoop Dogg released a new mixtape with DJ Drama entitled ‘Thats My Work 3‘ earlier this month and he’s still busy as ever performing concerts, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a little extra time on his hands. Maybe even to much time on his hands. Snoop Dogg took to his Instagram account to show off his new french tipped manicured acrylic nails.

The Donne and Ginny Gee, a sister duo who own “Hey, Nice Nails” nail salon in Long Beach, Calif., took a house call to Snoop’s place to hook the rapper up. Snoop has always been one of the stylish in the rap game, remember back in the 90’s with the relaxed hair do’s ?

Is french manicured acrylic tips the next big one ? Or is Snoop Dogg over doing it ? Sound off

New Video: Beyonce ‘Partition’

Partition

 

Beyonce has officially dropped the visuals to her latest single “Partition.” If you remember the only people who could view the 17 videos off of Beyonce’s self titled album that dropped earlier in December, were people who actually brought the album off of iTunes. Well the video has been officially released for the public.

The Jake Nava-directed video was influenced by Beyoncé’s trip to the Crazy Horse Burlesque show in Paris on the night that Jay Z proposed, which was also the same night he was celebrating his birthday. In the behind the scenes of the video Bey admitted

Just because I’m a mother doesn’t mean you lose who you are.

There’s songs like “Partition” and I’m in the studio and I hear this beat and I hear this baseline and it has snaps and it’s like, two tracks. Very simple. It reminds me of like Too $hort or E-40. It takes me back to being in my car [as a] teenager and it takes me back to when me and my husband first met. He’s trying to scoop me and he thinks I’m the hottest thing in the world. I kinda had this whole fantasy of being in the car and this whole movie played in my head. I didn’t have a pen and paper, I just got to the mic. I’m like “Oh, press record.”

The day that I got engaged was my husband’s birthday and I took him to Crazy Horse and I remember thinking, ‘Damn, these girls are fly.’ I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show I’ve ever seen. I was like, ‘I wish I was up there. I wish I could perform that for my man.’ So that’s what I did for the video.
