Drake is “So Far Gone” from the rap game rookie he once was, and it shows on the video for his newest single, “Headlines.”
It’s a task deciding which is better, the video or the song. Drake, whether in his letterman jacket that reeks of Degrassi’s Jimmy, his hooded sweater that matches the "homies" that surround him, his patterned man blouse, aviator lenses and cigar that mimic Young Hova in his earlier days or the Cosby sweater he dons as the Don at the head table, is easy on the eyes and takes the viewer on a tour of his Canadian hometown.
No one scene takes rank over the other; each comes and goes in split seconds. At one point Drake is standing in front of a Greek-style building with Corinthian columns. In another, he is on a rising elevator as a metaphorical analogy of his self-proclaimed career ascension. […] Read more »
Florence and the Machine frontrunner Florence Welch took time out from hitmaking to smolder on the cover of Billboard Magazine draped in a striking cranberry dress. Not just a talented singer, Welch has also emerged as a fashionista, with designers such as Gucci and Chanel clamoring to dress her frame in their creations.
In the cover story, she spoke at length about her style evolution, from the start of Florence and the Machine’s ascension until today.
“At the beginning of my career I was going through a really weird phase of dressing in boys clothes,” said Welch to Billboard. […] Read more »
Black Eyed Peas announced today they will no longer appear at this weekend's Michael Forever tribute concert for Michael Jackson due to "unavoidable circumstances."
"It is with regret that we announce the removal of Black Eyed Peas from the Michael Forever bill," Chris Hunt, chief executive officer of Global Live Events, told BBC News, "but I look forward to a great night with other earth shattering artists."
The bill currently features Jackson's siblings Marlon, Tito, Jackie, and LaToya, along with Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Leona Lewis, JLS and a video performance by Beyonce. The show will be hosted by Radio 1's Fearne Cotton and singer/actor Jamie Foxx.

Nicki Minaj and Detroit rapper Big Sean join forces on the remix for his explicit song, “Dance (Ass).”
Big Sean continues his ode to the bum and even adds an extra verse to a single laden with snare and sampling during the chorus and a minimalist bass sound during verses.
“Wobble-dy wobble-dy wa wobble wobble/I’m st-stacking my paper my wallet look like a bible/I got girlies half naked that shit look like the grotto/How your waist anorexic and then your ass is colossal/Drop that ass make it boomerang/Take my belt off, bitch I’m Pootie Tang,” raps Sean.
Despite his best attempt at sexism, however, Big Sean is no match for Minaj, who enters the track ass first and quickly proves that she is the star of the song.[…] Read more »
Chingy’s new song, “Paperman,” sets out to prove that the boyish rapper’s pockets still go “ching-a-ling.”
Although his last song, 2003’s smash hit “Right Thurr,” occurred eight years ago, with his disappearance from the rap game shortly thereafter ensuring his one-hit wonder status, Chingy has surely forgotten about his absence and isn’t short on braggadocio in the four-minute video.
“You can call me Paperman/I be getting paper, man,” he repeats over and over again throughout the video.
Chingy is cooped up in the back of a corner store, mobster-style, at the visual’s beginning when one of his “contacts” enters and hands him a backpack full of dirty money. He instructs his “assistant,” an attractive female, to count the money, and she happily obliges. […] Read more »
