Chris Brown adds another number one album under his belt according to Hits Daily Double. Although sales aren’t that high, it’s a great showing for 2012 considering overall sales are low. To put it in perspective, Justin Bieber has the highest opening of 2012 selling 374,000 units. Week three Justin Bieber’s sales has fallen to 69,000 units. Nicki Minaj topped the charts with 251,000 units her opening week, which is actually pretty high for 2012.
Chris Brown also takes the top spot in the UK, knocking Maroon 5 down to second place. I haven’t heard the whole album yet, but I hear it’s pretty good if you’re into techno. Critics on the other hand aren’t really feeling the album. Reviews are mixed by mixed I mean mostly negative. I knew as soon as I heard Deuces that F.A.M.E. was going to be a hit. I haven’t heard a song from Fortune that gives me that same vibe. But fans of Chris Brown insist FORTUNE is a great album. Must not be too bad, it’s still #1.
A few days ago, Fantasia posted a picture on Instagram of herself preparing for the 2012 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. Just a simple shot of her in a robe, backstage. Seems so innocent at first…then people started commenting on it, specifically the way she was grabbing at her belly…
Man look. Fantasia has one of the saddest stories that I know, as far as celebrities in troubling relationships. She gave birth in December to her son by her still married boyfriend Antwaun Cook and it seemed downhill from there. Apparently she was dumped by Antwaun for Kendra James of Bad Girls Club. SMH People FINALLY asked her what was the deal. Was she pregnant or not? Peep the questions and her answer below:
I need help on this topic. I just don’t get it! I don’t get why a woman would knowingly date the last woman’s trash. I understand if you discover a man is trifling after the fact, but who starts off the relationship with trifling?
Scenario 1: If you watched last night’s episode of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta then you understand my question. Not only is Stevie J openly cheating on his baby-mama, MiMi, but he also gets his other girl(?) Joseline pregnant. Let’s just pretend for a moment that we believe Joseline was pregnant in the first place. Last night I watched a man drop his girlfriend off at the “clinic” to take care business. Let me rephrase that, last night I watched Stevie J drop Joseline off at the curb of the clinic, so that she can abort his child. By the end of the episode, they were together, again. Guess what he’s still with Mimi, too O_o.
Scenario 2: Antwaun Cook left his wife and kids to be with Fantasia. After attempting to take her life and deal with the public outrage of this man going back and forth between Fannie and his wife, Paula Cook, Fantasia took him back. Not only did she take Antwaun back,
Kanye West wants to see the face behind the urban site Media Takeout so that he can slap the expletive out of them. There are lot of bloggers who feel the same way, too, and an even longer list of celebs. According to Miss Jia, Kanye West decided to go off on MTO during a concert at the Revel Resorts in Atlantic City. Really?!? Kanye West is only giving MTO more publicity to fuel their fire. They will certainly turn Kanye’s words into a promotional video. If you’re going to mention a blog, shouldn’t it be one you like…like back in the day with Concrete Loop?
If you have something to give the world, a lot of times the press just tries to take everything negative. Just look at MediaTakeOut. They so effin’ fulla sh-t. Show your mf’ face so I can smack the sh-t out of you! Making up sh-t every day. I am flawed as a human being. I am flawed as a person. As a man, I am flawed…but
Earlier this summer Maxwell announced that he would be having a series of concerts, where he would be singing the full albums of ALL his work. Many of us rejoiced but just a few weeks ago, Maxwell had to cancel the shows, sighting vocal hemorrhaging problems. Only July 4th, Maxwell tweeted that his voice was well enough to sing again and has resumed work on his album. He shared his thoughts on what we should expect with SUMMERS’:
AP: How’s the new album coming along?
Maxwell: It’s my daily chore, let me tell you. The third part of it, “NIGHT,” is as well my daily chore.
