Sean Kingston is caught up in some groupie love drama, being accused of rape, as of July 12. Apparently, two young ladies, age 19 and 20, arrived at a hotel party that Kingston attended in Seattle. They were both dumb drunk, arriving with vodka and beer. They let Kingston smash…then they smashed the homies. When all was said and done, they screamed rape. I don’t know why women, groupies in particular, get liquored up, let celebrities smash, and then feel bad about it in the morning. But honestly, there is no telling what happened. Typically when women get drunk around a bunch of dudes they don’t know, a group of men can turn into a mob…and things can happen. Read More »

Kelis has been known to drop a hot single every now and then, but as of July 14, her album “Fleshtone” is experiencing dismal sales. Her career has seen its highs, and its dead spots, and never really seemed to take off. For those that don’t know,Â Kelis finally found mainstream success in the U.S. in 2003 with her Billboard Hot 100 top five single, “Milkshake”; this helped to propel her third album, Tasty, to sell over 400,000 copies in the U.S in only two months. But sales for Kelis album Fleshtone are awful to say the least, and NO WHERE near Tasty’s numbers.
Usher has released a video for his chart topping hit “There Goes My Baby” July 13. It seems like Usher always has to go through a rotten relationship to produce a hot album. The video is simple; minimal dancing from Ursher, but steamy scenesÂ intertwinedÂ throughout the entire vid. Not that an Usher video needs a plot, other than â€œappear shirtless, coo, lick lips, simulate sex (only from the shoulders up), drive fast car, repeat,â€ but the storyline is about how he canâ€™t wait to get his hands on his girl. Every man has had this thought. Â With lines like â€œI love the way you be poking it outâ€, this song is sly and sexy and perfect for setting the mood with your lady. Although Charlie Wilson released a track with the same name last year, Usher definitely has a hit with this one.Â ”Bet you ain’t know I be checking you out, when you be putting your heels on…”Check it out below.
