Keri Hilson is on the cover of J’adore Magazine and has some things to say about artists being held as role models:
It’s important for us to be role models for our fans, but this is the entertainment industry and artists are not paid to be parents to our fans. We are not perfect. We are human beings just like our fans. Our music reflects us as a person and how we feel when we write a record. Our music also shows how we may be dealing with a situation at a particular time. Things happen in life. Why should we be exempt from the common compassion that a person receives who is not in the industry?
Keri Hilson also talks about her roles as a writer in the idustry, and defining what she feels is real music:
It’s funny. Some people say they want to hear someone real, but some artists do not even write their own songs. Some artists do not even meet with the songwriters that sell them their next big hit. So, if you appreciate the music and understand the realness of a true artist, then check In A Perfect World…..I have songs that anyone can relate to and they are from the heart.
MGV Says: I go back and forth on the moral obligation of artist as role models. I think being a role model inhibits creativity when you have to make sure you’re putting forth a positive image. But at the same time, I don’t think parents she look to artist like Lil Wayne as role models. If you want to carry that role model cross as an artist, I think you should let it be known, so parents can help their children decide what’s appropriate and what’s not.
I know you have seen the sunburnt picture of Kim Kardashian that she posted on twitter after falling asleep in the sun, but just in case you haven’t check it out below: Ouch!
Kim was in so much pain that she solicited advice from fellow tweeters. Well it looks like she has found a remedy for the pain, SPA DAY in Beverly Hills! I think she looks cute au naturalle!
Kelly Rowland is enjoying a stay in the states by soaking up some sun on Miami’s South Beach. We like gossip, but we like class even more, and Kelly Roland is certainly a woman of integrity and poise. You know she is twittering on her phone. Have you joined me on Twitter…What are you waiting for?
Speaking of Twitter, Ashton Kutcher and Diddy were on Larry King Live last night to promote the social network. During the entire interview with Larry King, twitter stayed over capacity, as new people rushed to find out all the buzz.
Is it just me or does this couple just make you giddy. I don’t know who excites me more, Barack and Michele, or Beyonce and Jay-Z. They are really starting to look like a normal married couple, except when they stop to sign autographs. Isn’t black love beautiful…
Fill in the blank: Lindsay Lohan has tried everything except _________!
I don’t know what went down at this event, but insiders saw Lindsay Lohan “sneak” away with Mel B and friends to a private room, only to return hours later looking like a couple. I’m sure it was all innocent and nothing happened, but the kiss that Lindsay gave Mel B at the end of the night just added fuel to fire. Lindsay was one of many stars who flew into Las Vegas to see Mel B perform in PEEPSHOW, a topless burlesque performance.

I know you can’t get enough of Karrin Steffans, and she is back with more drama than before. In an interview with Black Voices, she admits that she is married to Darius McCrary of Family Matters and has been for some time now. However she won’t explain when, where, or how:
The statement is that Darius and I have always been married. When and where is confidential. Our license is confidential. In the state of California , if you live together as husband and wife, then you can file a confidential license. Darius and I have always been married whether it’s spiritually or legally, we’re married on both levels; legally, on paper, signed, sealed, delivered.We’ve been living together for two years and we are married. We’re a couple. That was important for us on many levels. With the help of our pastor and the help of our church, it was the right thing to do for the situation that we’re in so whenever we did it, we did it.
That’s not the juicy part, the juicy part is that she has a relentless hate for bloggers. I guess that’s why she has blocked MrsGrapevine.com from her twitter page. Oh Well!
Karrine’s biggest beef, however, is with Necole of necolebitchie.com. In this interview, she blames Necole Bitchie for starting baseless rumors that Karrine and Bow Wow were dating; a charge that Bow Wow doesn’t deny, and a charge Karrine admitted during a radio interview:
I don’t know where the Bow Wow stuff came from. It came from an independent blog out of Atlanta who had gotten some information from a source that and I had all of these going-ons or whatever. I don’t know him so it was impossible. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
But, don’t worry. She has made a change for the best, and has learned her lesson. So don’t expect anymore books revealing her past conquests:
I hit 30 and I just woke up and got it. I have a husband and two kids, a house and a career. I had a dog, but she ran away. Other than that, everything is regular and normal. I’m too old for anything.
