Ryan Seacrest Buys VH1 Soul?

Ryan Seacrest, radio personality and host of American Idol, is interested in purchasing VH1 Soul network. The creator of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” has decided to snap up one of the only music channels that still plays only music. With it being pulled out of a number of major markets, the network looks to be in peril. The plan is to purchase the network and rebrand it, but not the same way Oprah purchased Discovery Health and turned it into the OWN Network, Seacrest saying, “It will not be branded with my name or my face, which many people will be happy about.”

Once the plan goes through, will the channel still play Jill Scott and Dwele? Ain’t nothing like neo-soul at 3 in the morning…

What do you think?

Bobbi Kristina Cover Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’

Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, uploaded her cover of Adele’s ‘Someone Like You.’ And while she’s no Whitney (now), she definitely has potential. Bobbi Kristina is vocally-trained, I assume in order to take over the reigns of her parents, and you can see that in her singing. In the video, she’s not trying to be her mother though, she’s just being herself.

Check out the video and let me know what you think. Does Bobbi Kristina have a music career in the future? READ MORE

Did Amber Rose And Wiz Khalifa Get Married?

Amber Rose has been telling everybody that she wants to be Wiz’s wifey and the mother of his children. From the looks of things, I’m starting to wonder if the couple secretly got married. A picture has surfaced on the net of Wiz and Amber out in Las Vegas just a few days ago. In the pic, Amber is seen wearing a white dress and Wiz is in a black tux. When have you ever seen Wiz wear a tux? Makes me think they got married on the low and didn’t tell anybody! To add to the mix, Amber tweeted the other day calling Wiz her husband.
