[The Word] “There’s nobody really in my league,” -Rihanna

Seems like Pop Superstar, Rihanna is feeling pretty good about her accomplishments as of lately. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, The Bajan princess recently told Look Magazine just how confident she was feeling;

There’s nobody really in my league But there’s competition everywhere. The whole music industry is competition. There are people who like other artists, those who like me and others who like both. Beyonce is a great artist and I feel honoured to be mentioned in the same sentence…

Wait … Say That Again?

Beyonce is a great artist and I feel honoured to be mentioned in the same sentence…

Carry On…

but we’re different performers with different styles.

Now, I won’t be a Bey Stan and jump all over Rihanna for this comment. She’s right, she has in fact carved a lane of her own. This is true. She makes hits. Great ones. And her charisma, fashion and music have catapulted her to the star status she currently receives. If that’s her league, (air quotation marks) she’s definitely right. And if that league includes her vocals and performances, she’s DEFINITELY right, that league is all her own.

because…

Beyonce (as she mentioned, not us)…

Is in a league of her own as well…

Period.

[The Daily Word] PETA call’s Janet Jackson’s career #DEAD/ Somaya Reece calls the GOONs on VH1/John Legend gets engaged!

 

Janet Jackson has the folks over at PETA pretty damn upset! The group named her Grinch of the Year for 2011 for her work with Blackglama.  PETA released this statement saying,

“When Janet Jackson had her infamous ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own – unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career).  Ms. Jackson, you’re just plain nasty.”

Well DAMN PETA …

I’m sure Mrs. Janet is taking this all in stride.

*Hmph*

 

The Jennifer Lopez of the Rap Game, Somaya Reece …

J-LO BREAK!

…is up in arms due to her absence on now the second episode of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Season 2. She pulled out her motorola razor and t9’d her talents to twitter to get the goons together.

I’m sure the VH1 offices were swarmed with angry 8 year olds, you know the children take those characters on Sesame Street very seriously.

….

But Somaya, secretly, there’s nothing interesting about your life that we want to see.

Nope, Nothing B*tch! Zip it! I’m F*ckin’ DONE!

Sorry.

 

And lastly, R&B Crooner, John Legend has proposed to his girlfriend of the past 3 years, model Christine Teigen.

His rep confirmed to People saying:

“John Legend and his girlfriend, model Chrissy Teigen, got engaged over the holidays while vacationing in the Maldives.”

I can hear messy Wendy now…

 

She’s so messy.

Well we fux with John! In other news, John has a new label situation with Kanye’s  G.O.O.D. Music promising new music in early 2012.

We can’t wait.

And that’s your Daily Word.

[The Word] Sheree Whitfield visits the Breakfast Club & J-Hud Passed up role as ‘Precious’ …

Sheree Whitfield of Bravo’s Housewives of Atlanta, paid a visit to NYC’s Breakfast Club  to talk about her crippled finances, no child support and her awful new single.

*Sighs*

Nobody Sheree, Nobody.

I just can’t deal with her doing the interview in a fur coat. Seriously?

Right.

Moving on …

Powerhouse, Jennifer Hudson is in the process of releasing a book entitled  ‘I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down,’. In the book J-Hud says that the starring role in ‘Precious’ was first offered to her, but she wasn’t prepared to gain more weight for another role.

*Shrugs*

It really annoys me when celebs talk about roles they passed up. I’m like, so? Christina Milian passed up ‘UmbrellaandS.O.S.’ both records that surely would have changed her career. You don’t see her talking about it.

I’m just saying…

That’s today’s Daily Word.

[The Word] R. Kelly Has Written 32 NEW Chapters of ‘Trapped In the Closet’?

So…R. Kelly has released some news 32 years later about “Trapped In The Closet”? I’m confused. :/

Via TMZ:

R. Kelly needs funding — AND QUICK — because the singer tells TMZ he’s ready to film THIRTY TWO new chapters of his legendary hip-hopera “Trapped in the Closet” … but he needs financial backing first.

When we last saw “Trapped” … the year was 2007 and Kelly had released 22 chapters, involving a little person who crapped his pants … a neighbor with the spatula … and a pimp with the stuttering problem.

Now, Kelly — who was leaving an L.A. gym yesterday — tells us he wants to continue the saga — “but it costs a lot of money to do … so we’re actually looking for investors.”

In the meantime, check out the end of Chapter 7 — it’s the only time we’ve ever heard anyone sing the word “spatula” … and it’s beautiful.

[The Word] Who is suing Queen Beyonce for 100 Million?

Good Lord, Who’s suing the Queen?

Here’s the scoop, Bey is being sued by the software developer Gate Five for allegedly pulling out of a deal to create Starpower: Beyoncé, a motion-sensing dance video game. The company is seeking more than $100 million in damages for what they say in a summons obtained by New York Magazine was “a bad faith breach of contract so callous that, on what appeared to be a whim, she destroyed Gate Five’s business and drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas.

Seriously? 100 Million dollars?

Whatever.

What happened you ask? According to Gate Five, the Queen “had already negotiated lavish compensation terms to which she was contractually bound,” but made a sudden demand for even more money than the original contract at a key moment in the development of the game. The summons claims that Beyoncé’s actions were so ridiculous that they were renounced by her pops Mathew Knowles, her manager at the time.

Really Matthew?

Guess that’s why you were dropped …

We’ll keep you posted on this …

Your Thoughts?

[The Daily Word] ‘I’m Sorry for the Ignorant Way I Represented Myself’ -Diddy

Diddy kinda pissed me off yesterday, as I’m sure you read. He quickly made up for it though, by issuing an apology for his niggerish behavior. (Read Here.)

I mean, I’m a Diddy Fan. I respect the business that is Diddy, and fully respect his contributions to the soundtrack of my life. Need I name names? So his behavior this weekend was totally unacceptable. No No No.

Diddy claims he “backslid and regressed” when he shouted racial and homophobic slurs at patrons in Atlanta this weekend.

Diddy took his talents to his Twitter page a few hours ago and issued an apology to his fans for his behavior in Atlanta.

“I’m sorry for the ignorant way I represented myself … I have backslid and regressed. Forgive me for my ignorance. Pray for me pls. I know better and I am better.”

He Tweeted.

He added,

“I have a responsibility that I promise I will live up to. And I’m more disappointed in myself than you know. I will humble myself and learn.”

TMZ spoke to the man on the receiving end of the slurs, Ricky Parker, who tells us he felt “humiliated and disrespected” by Diddy and claims he will no longer support the hip hop icon.

Parker tells us he couldn’t believe that Diddy would attack him so ferociously, simply because he was drinking Grey Goose vodka that night and NOT Ciroc vodka, which Diddy serves as a spokesperson for.

Parker tells us, “You won’t ever hear me support him from this moment forward.”

Rickey is MAD! lol

But this apology serves as a major sign of adulthood. We accept.
