It seems like Ciara is making her way back home. According to reports by Billboard, Ciara has left Jive Records and will now be joining forces with L.A. Reid (that’s who originally signed her back in 2003) under the restructured Epic Records. This looks to be a great business move for Ciara because then she would be top priority for Epic Records.

Ciara’s career is going nowhere but up now that her career will be under Reid’s direction. If you didn’t already know, Reid is responsible for helping artists like Mariah Carey, Usher, Toni Braxton, and even Kanye West reach multi-platinum sales. Sounds like my girl Ciara is in good company and I wish her nothing but the best! Do you think this is a good business move for Ciara?

R. Kelly Home Foreclosed

R. Kelly’s new album “Love Letter” must not be selling it needs to because he is now facing a $2.9 million foreclosure on his mansion located in Olympia Fields (a southern suburb of Chicago).

Supposedly R. Kelly hasn’t paid his mortgage on the 11,000 sq. ft. Mansion because he was trying to force the bank to modify his loan…well at least that’s what his people are claiming. Too bad his former managers over at Prospect Park LLC are saying a completely different story. READ MORE

Lil Wayne’s upcoming album is ready for arrival. The rap superstar caught up with MTV News and revealed that he’s “totally done” working on “Tha Carter Four,” and it’s still scheduled to arrive on August 29th. Lil Wayne is currently heating up the charts with “Tha Carter Four’s” latest single, “How To Love.” Weezy says the song is in some ways similar to Tupac Shakur’s “Keep Ya Head Up,” noting that it encourages “women and little girls across the world” to stay strong “even though things are hard.”

Fans will once again be able to catch Lil Wayne live and in person when he kicks off the second leg of his “I Am Music Two Tour” this week. The trek resumes on Wednesday with a show in Hartford, Connecticut.

Foxy Brown Trial To Begin Today

Foxy Brown is set to begin defending herself against allegations that she mooned another woman. The rap diva will be in a New York courtroom today to start her trial for allegedly violating an order of protection. Foxy was arrested last summer after she reportedly got into an argument with one of her neighbors. During the dispute, the rapper allegedly flashed her backside at the woman. The case has become more serious, however, because the alleged victim took out an order of protection against Foxy back in 2007 after she was hit with a cell phone. Foxy has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of criminal contempt, and is facing up to a year behind bars.

Recently Dj Khaled stated that there is no beef between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy! We all know that Dj Khaled and Rick Ross are like family so his word is very credible. Khaled says:

“I don’t condone problems.  That’s just what I do. I represent that love and just making great music. Them two guys, they don’t have no problems. I guess people in the streets just try to make things into a problem. But that’s just life. That’s how you know when you hot. And that’s just part of the game. When you in the game and you successful you have to deal with things like that. But you know, they aint got no problems. It’s all love.”

There you have it folks! Straight from the mouth of Dj Khaled. Catch the video here: READ MORE

Through the years, everyone knows the Black Eyed Peas to have taken breaks on and off but now singer Fergie is saying that they are taking an “indefinite hiatus from each other”. While Fergie issued this statement she really expressed that the group is not over but more so just taking a break. A break for them would be similar to the hiatus the group took when they released Monkey Business in 2005 and then came back in 2009 with The E.N.D. Will.I.Am confirmed Fergie’s statement via his twitter account tweeting:

“The @Bep will take a break after the beginning…just like we did from monkey business to the e.n.d…but it doesn’t mean we stop creating” READ MORE

Matthew Knowles Caught Stealing From Beyonce

According to documents obtained by TMZ, Matthew Knowles claims that Live Nation Entertainment wanted to play a major role in Beyonce’s 2011 World Tour. The documents say that Live Nation told Beyonce that her father Matthew “had stolen money from Beyonce on her most recent tour or otherwise taken funds that he was not entitled to”.
Basically…they made Matthew Knowles out to be a thief. Apparently Live Nation’s word made Beyonce think twice and she had her law firm conduct an audit. Sad to say, the law firm confirmed that Matthew did take money that wasn’t his and he was fired shortly after that.  This is all interesting because in her “4” documentary Beyonce said that:

“I’ve been managed by my father for a long time and a real change meant separating from him. It was scary but it empowered me and I wasn’t going to let fear stop me. It was very risky for me to step out on my own. Being a young woman I want to set the example that it’s possible for us to own our own businesses and own our own record labels. Sometimes we don’t reach for the stars, sometimes we are satisfied with what people tell us that we’re suppose to be satisfied with and I’m just not going for it.”

None of this sounds like what reports are saying now. Papa Knowles says that after this altercation, Beyonce hired a manager who had worked previously as an executive at Live Nation. Of course, Matthew is saying that the theft accusations by Live Nation are all lies. He’s even looking to get a judge to allow him the right to take depositions on several people over at Live Nation so that he can figure out just how they came up with the story of him being a thief. I want to know what Beyonce has to say about all of this. I’m sure everything will come out eventually. How do you feel about this situation? Do you believe that Matthew would really steal from his daughter?


In other news, Beyonce was spotted out shopping at Selfridges in London earlier today, just days after performing in Scotland at the “T in the Park” festival.
