After a long weekend, we’re back at it with your Daily Word, You ready?
Looks as if Pop Star Mariah Carey is back to work. Less than six months after giving birth to her twins, the new mom has returned to the studio to begin her next album. She and longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri have posted photos of themselves in the lab. I’m hoping she steps out of the Dupri box a bit more this time around. I mean, we’ve already been down this road.
“So happy to be back in the studio with the one & only @Mr_Dupri aka Jermash!” she stated.
Mariah’s voice is one that I’d love to hear over a plethora of different beats and production. Hopefully I get my wish.
Seems as if Lauryn Hill has an affinity for High Fashion, especially when it’s free. A fashion consultant/stylist who fitted Lauryn Hill with clothes for her European tour back in 2007 is suing the singer, claiming Lauryn never returned a majority of the clothes.
TMZ Reports that According to a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Via Davia Vintage provided Hill “with an entire wardrobe of high fashion items.” The company claims L-Boogie agreed to pay a fixed weekly fee for 4 weeks. But according to the lawsuit, Hill held the clothes hostage for three months, paying only a mere fraction of her balance.
Mind you, this is the second time in the last two months that Lauryn has been sued because of her 2007 European Tour. Last month, a guitar player sued her for $20,000 claiming unpaid wages. What was going on in 2007?
Once again Amber Rose crying. It seems as if every other week she’s complaining and crying in a corner. Ungh! Earlier this week she received a huge backlash after she visited Ghana to host the Vodafone 020 festival and paid a visit to the youth that are living in poverty. Many Ghanaians were offended when Amber chose to tweet photos of those who lived in poor areas and stated that people in Ghana were either extremely rich or extremely poor, with no middle class. The statement pissed off many who stated that Amber should inform herself on the continent of Africa as well as the country of Ghana before making any comments in the future, in reference to things she knew nothing about.
I absolutely HATE anyone who makes erroneous statements without proper merritt. That tweet was based on what you SAW Amber, not based on what you know. They should have given it to you, your statement was ignorant.
She wrote a blog about her frustrations. Stating that she get’s a bad rap because she’s a woman, and there is a complete double standard in this industry regarding the activities of men and women.
I used to like Amber, but the more she opens her mouth, the more her ignorance turns me completely off.
Go back to school Amber.
Learn how to address the real issue. The Ghanaians are not upset with you for being a woman, and they could care less about your nude pictures. Your tweet was ignorant to their culture, and THATS why they were upset. Your statement was based on what you saw and not what you knew to be a fact, and yet you put it out there to all your followers as if you knew what you were talking about. Not realizing that DING DING DING someone MIGHT take your tweet for fact and inherit your ignorance about the country. That was the issue. Do yourself a favor and do some research before you make comments about the current state of a countries livelihood. Because you know what? Someone might get offended. Don’t you get offended when someone automatically calls you a talentless whore without knowledge of you? based on assumptions and WHAT THEY SEE? Ring a bell?
Shut Your Mouth.
I’ve heard of coming home parties when people come out of prison (Yes, it’s what brown people do), but a welcome home brunch?
And I do mean Fancy. T.I. is scheduled to have a Welcome Home brunch following his release from prison in a few days. Sources say Diddy is personally shipping in 150 bottles of Ciroc, one for each person in attendance, and the bash will cost around $100K, including $20K on food and additional $8K on dessert.
That’s a lot of money to blow. Sometimes we as a people do to much. He’s coming out of jail, he didn’t graduate from College.
The brunch is “allegedly” (Air Quotation Marks) October 2, two days after Tip gets released from the halfway house.
