Filmed in San Juan, Puerto Rico, actor/model (and now singer) Idris Elba just released the official video for his first single, “Private Garden.” Sung with a Caribbean twang almost, the R&B/soul song is sure to have a following, though I don’t think it will be on the pop stations. Check out the video below: READ MORE
Yesterday singer Ne-Yo showed his devotion to the country as he sung the National Anthem at the Redskins Vs. Giants game. While singing, Ne-Yo clutched on to his hat and belted out the classic song while families of some of the victims of 9/11 held a huge American flag in the field. READ MORE
According to Billboard.com, a reliable source has come forward and told the public that Wiz and Amber have not say “I Do” just yet. In actuality, they were just “simply celebrating Wiz’s birthday with close family and friends in Vegas”. This comes as interesting news to me. Wiz chose to celebrate his 24th birthday by having an upscale party that included him wearing a tux? What marks his 24th birthday as so important that it calls for a tux and the rest of the guest to dress up as well? Let’s remember this is the same dude that wore jean shorts and a white tee to a record label party for his album when it turned gold (click here for that story). I’m not sure if I believe this story just yet. READ MORE
Singer Llyod dropped his new video for his song Dedication To My Ex (Miss That) today and it’s hot! The video features a 50s/60s feel in the video. While this song is a favorite of many because of the feature done by Andre 3000, he isn’t in the video. Instead, a rapping cat (yes an actual animal) takes his spot in the video does the rapping appearance. In addition to a rapping cat, Wayne Brady also makes an appearance in the video. The video which was directed by Brian Barber just debuted on 106 & Park today. Check it out! READ MORE
Yooo, Wendy Williams and the ladies of the The View are back with new sets, new interviews and plenty of talk. They are back and revamped and hopefully this season will be better than ever. I caught Wendy’s show today and I gotta say, it was slacking a little bit. Wendy just got off her summer tour and it was tight, but I need to see more content! Next week, she’s supposed to have Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen on the show, and I’m hoping she’ll go in. The View had Dr. Phil today, and tomorrow is former Vice President Dick Cheney…I’m sure Whoopi will be telling somebody off! Haha.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa had charges of drug trafficking from November dropped. Wiz was arrested by police right before getting on the stage at East Carolina University and charged with drug trafficking and released on $300,000 bond (see here). The charges were thrown out, it looks like the 2 ounces of weed found on Khalifa’s bus weren’t enough to be considered trafficking, you need about 10 lbs. for that. Also, three members of Khalifa’s crew staked claim to the stash, each having to pay a $1000 and court costs.
Should Khalifa have gone down for those two ounces or was he profiled?
Hip-hop’s fashionista Kanye West was obviously absent from this year’s Fashion Week in NYC. Normally a staple of the event, known for sitting in front row of major fashion events, Weezy was no where to be found, and neither were some major designers including his friend, Marc Jacobs. Rumor has it that West will skill Fashion Week in NYC completely to launch his womenswear collection next during during the fashion shows in Paris. Rumor also has it that Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci, artwork designer for Watch the Throne, as a mentor.
