Music News: Rihanna’s New Album Plus Jamie Foxx Gets Her Angry

New Rihanna album will feature Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z, plus Jamie Foxx Gets Rihanna Angry…

Rihanna is growing up, and she’s invited the big boys to play on her new album.

Among the heavy hitters slated to lend their voices to the new album are, Kanye West, the obvious Justin Timberlake, Soulja Boy, the beautiful Shontelle, Jay-Z, the talented Pharell Williams and many others …

Rihanna made a further statement about her music and the “Good Girl Gone Bad” album which is now behind her.

“I do not intend to give up anything, said the singer. Good Girl Gone Bad did that time in my life. It represented who I was. My next album will be a notch above. I want to continue to grow … I am not stuck. I want to change. “

First, it is important to know that no name has been determined at this time, therefore forget the rumor of the “Dark Angels”, the “Karma”, the “Good Girl Gone Bad” and all that follows. Rihanna has chosen the name of her new album for several weeks but want to keep secret until the last moment to avoid any leaks.

Many artists are working on this album that will certainly be a great board that will get Rihanna a successful comeback worldwide. Among the army of employees, include for example the famous leader of the band OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder, who composed two songs for Rihanna, which he played entirely on a piano.  At this stage, we will no longer speak of “planetary tubes”, but songs that should “mark the minds forever,” to cite Def Jam. Words certainly exaggerated but at least the die is cast.

Rihanna never was as much a perfectionist and selective in the choice of songs and their interpretation. Also, it participates actively in the writing of words and the selection of instrumental moods. The album is more rock than the previous one and a bit more pop, while keeping many songs tones and rhythms of R&B, where the singer excels.

It is clear that Rihanna wants to be recognized as being now a mature woman who requires both its own musical style and its own originality. Rihanna loves her image trendsetter and wants now to exploit it to its songs. So this is a true melting pot of musical styles that appear on the new album, which will mark a remarkable 180° turn for Rihanna and the fans, who should not be disappointed with the result.

Namely, several duos should appear on the album. By “several” means two or three. At the moment none have been recorded with the exception of those with singer Chris Brown who have been canceled and will not appear on the album. Needless to say why, as everyone knows (at least, hopefully).

In short, this album promises to be Rihanna’s best album and certainly the best in the league of artists produced by Def Jam.

Jamie Foxx Gets Rihanna Angry At Tao In Las Vegas…

JAMIE Foxx is at it again. The actor, who recently ridiculed Miley Cyrus on his radio show, laid into Rihanna during a party at Tao in Las Vegas the other night.

Jamie took over the microphone and started doing a show. Halfway through, he asked Rihanna to join him onstage,” said sources. She was there with Jay-Z and looked “annoyed” at the request, said our tipster.Rihanna declined, but Foxx continued to badger her.”

The deejay played “Umbrella” and “that was the last straw” for the Barbados-born beauty. “She got up to leave, and Jamie told the deejay to stop the record,” said our source. Foxx shouted, “You can’t go while your song is playing. Relax.”

Our witness said, Rihanna stayed and pretended to enjoy herself, but it was so obvious she was fuming. As soon as the song was over, she got the hell out of there.” Rihanna’s rep declined to comment and Foxx’s rep didn’t return calls and e-mails.

Music News: Jay-Z Tops Forbes’ List

Jay-Z

Forbes‘ annual list of Hip-Hop’s Cash Kings for this year has been unveiled, and it witnesses music mogul Jay-Z on the very top spot. Over the past 12 months, between June 2008 and June 2009, he has been pulling in an estimated $35 million, an amount which is $47 million less than his earnings in 2008.

Last year’s winner, 50 Cent, drops to the 4th place. He is reported taking in $20 million, down from $150 million a year ago. The earnings are said coming from his Vitamin Water deal, G-Unit clothing line and numerous licensing deals.

In between Jay-Z and 50 there are P. Diddy and Kanye West, who secure the 2nd and 3rd slots respectively. P. Diddy rakes in $30 million over the past year from his expanding business that includes a brand of premium vodka and his Sean John clothing line. Kanye, meanwhile, earns a total of $25 million, thanks to his multi-platinum album “808’s & Heartbreak” and his sold-out Glow in the Dark Tour.

“Despite the economy, hip-hop is just as powerful as it’s ever been in the endorsement and licensing world,” says Ryan Schinman, chief of Platinum Rye, the world’s largest buyer of music and talent for corporations when commenting on Forbes’ Hip-Hop’s Cash Kings 2009 list. “Tween stars and rock legends are very reliable, but the impact of hip-hop on pop-culture and fashion continues to lead the charge.”

The music mogul’s earnings over the past 12 months, between June 2008 and June 2009, are listed as much as 35 million dollars.

Just In: Joe Jackson Says Michael’s Kids Have Bright Futures

The elder Jackson praises Michael‘s daughter Paris, saying that he believes the young girl wants to do something in Hollywood show business.

On Friday, July 10, Joe Jackson had an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” during when he expressed his strong belief that Michael Jackson‘s children could have bright futures should they try their hands in showbiz. The elder Jackson especially made a reference to Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, who delivered a touching eulogy during Michael‘s memorial service earlier this week.

“I don’t know – I keep watching Paris,” he said in a statement, before then adding, “She … wants to do something.” Joe, moreover, also has his eyes on Prince Michael Jackson II a.k.a. Blanket, revealing “As far as I can see, well, they say Blanket, he can really dance. That’s what they’re saying. He can really dance.” Joe, however, made no mention of Michael‘s eldest son, Prince Michael Jackson Jr.

On the same interview, Joe was asked about whom he thinks should get the custody of Michael‘s children, and his response was, “The grandmother, Katherine, and I. There’s no one else to do what we can do for them. We should keep them all together and make them happy. And feed them like they’re supposed to be fed. And let them get rest … and grow up to be strong Jacksons.”

Since Michael‘s sudden death on June 25, his mother Katherine Jackson remains the children’s temporary legal guardian. Custody of Prince Michael Jackson Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and Prince Michael Jackson II will be determined on a court hearing scheduled for July 20.

Wire Talk: La Toya Jackson to Dress Michael Jackson for Burial

In addition to making “the most incredible outfit” for Michael’s burial, the songstress reportedly has called her longtime stylist to help her styling her late brother.

Playing good and caring sister, La Toya Jackson reportedly will dress late brother Michael Jackson for his burial. Per Access Hollywood as being informed by a source close to the Jacksons, La Toya will have the King of Pop being laid to rest with his single signature white glove. “La Toya had Michael’s rhinestone glove laid in the casket,” confirms the source. “Michael wore a black leather glove on each hand [in the casket].”

As for Michael‘s final attire, La Toya will take care all the details. “She wanted him to look incredible. She called in his longtime stylist and had the most incredible outfit made for him,” says the source. “He looked wonderful – like an angel.”

On top of all, La Toya is said to have also been “extremely instrumental in every aspect and every detail” of the funeral arrangements, as well as watching after Michael‘s three children since he passed away last month. Besides, she has been “heavily involved” in the investigation conducted by authorities to determine the cause of Michael‘s death, which isn’t something new for her as she herself is a trained law enforcement official. “She’s still working around the clock with detectives until this case is resolved,” the source adds.

Despite the report, there has been no official word from Michael‘s family regarding plans of burial. In the meantime, there have been reports saying that he won’t be laid to rest until authorities finish examining his brain and before they can come to final conclusion on the cause of his death.

According to the NY Post, Michael Jackson is stored in LA Crypt as family squabbles.

Over his dead body!

Michael Jackson‘s family is bitterly divided over how best to profit off the King of Pop‘s remains — so his body has been stashed in Motown maestro Berry Gordy‘s crypt until the clan stops bickering, The Post has learned.

Jackson‘s gold-plated casket was last seen at his public memorial service, and its whereabouts have been shrouded in mystery — until now.

His remains were brought back to the white marble, above-ground crypt the Motown record-label founder bought for his family in the Court of Remembrance section of the sprawling, celeb-filled Forest Lawn Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.

Jackson‘s body is still missing his brain, which coroners are temporarily keeping for testing.

Aside from Jackson, the simple mausoleum is empty and marked only with a distinctive swooping letter “G.”

For the time being, Jackson lies with a who’s who of Hollywood heavyweights. Next door is the final resting place of American sweetheart actress Sandra Dee, who died in 2005.

And nearby are ornate crypts for iconic actress Bette Davis, flamboyant pianist Liberace and ’70s “Chico and the Man” star Freddie Prinze.

Gordy — who discovered the Jackson 5 — offered the family use of the crypt until they sort out what to do with the superstar’s remains, sources said.

On one side are Jackson‘s brother Jermaine and father, Joseph, who are insistent the Gloved One be buried at Neverland Ranch so the family can profit off a proposed Graceland-style museum there — a process that could take years.

On the other are Jackson‘s mother, Katherine, and most of the rest of the siblings, who want his body laid to rest elsewhere out of respect for his wish, following his acquittal on child-molestation charges, to never return to Neverland.

“Jermaine is the one that wants him at Neverland — he and Joseph — because of the whole Elvis thing and the money potential,” a family source said. “They are seeing dollar signs.”

Her son’s physical purgatory has left Katherine shaken.

“She is still upset that Michael isn’t buried and he is at Gordy’s spot in Forest Lawn, the source said. “This fighting has to stop. We can never unite, and that’s an injustice.”

The fight had become so contentious that Jermaine rode in a separate Rolls-Royce limousine to Jacko‘s public memorial at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, even though his mother had wanted all the brothers to ride together, the source said.

But the fight hasn’t stopped the family from agreeing on other ways to turn Jackson’s death into a financial boon.

Most of the kids and Katherine are onboard with a proposed documentary about the family that could bring in $20 million, the source said.

“They’re doing this documentary because with the kids, they will get $20 million,” the source said, adding Katherine is pushing all her children to be a part of it.

But if Jermaine and Joseph Jackson prevail, it would be a long legal road — permits would be needed — before a Graceland-like museum could be built at Jackson‘s one-time fantasyland home north of Santa Barbara.

Meanwhile, LAPD Chief William Bratton told CNN last night that detectives are looking at Jacko’s prescription-drug history and trying to talk with his numerous former doctors.

The coroner will determine the cause of death — whether it’s homicide or an accidental overdose.

The coroner’s office has subpoenaed “any and all” medical records pertaining to Jacko’s care, the LA Times reported.

Bratton said the federal Drug Enforcement Administration and the state Attorney General’s Office, which keeps a database of prescription drugs, are assisting investigators.

All On The Cover: Miley Cyrus Covers Elle

Miley Cyrus is gracing the cover and inside pages of the new August 2009 cover issue of Elle magazine, and inside the teen queen poses in black thigh-high boots and talks about her new clothing line with Max Azria for Wal Mart. She is not a kid anymore, even though she’s underage.

On why she’s not a kid anymore

On the value of style: “I would pay $500 for the jeans that we make for $20. I’m really into high fashion.”

On natural beauty: “I like these crooked. I love my teeth. My dad won’t let me fix my teeth or cut my hair. He loves it. He’s like, ‘It’s you!”

https://i2.wp.com/stylefrizz.com/img/miley-cyrus-elle-us-august-2009.jpg

On her new line for Wal Mart: “The jeans are my favorite part of the entire line,” Miley told Elle. “Because, like, literally this is going to be good for, like, Middle America, and it will be great for kids that really want to be in fashion but that don’t have it available.”

She also talks about her friendships (and one-time romance) with Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato.

“It’s hard for all of us. There are so many people that could be using you. So me and Nick and Demi, we don’t need anything from each other. We got our own thing going on.”

On Justin Gaston, her boyfriend at the time of the interview: “We’re together, and then again, we’re not. Some people see us more as friends and don’t get why we work in a relationship. They’re like, ‘It’s weird, best friends shouldn’t date!’ But the person that you eventually spend the rest of your life with – I’m not saying it’s him – why are you going to wake up with someone every day and not want to hang out with them?”

About the glamorous life: “The most fun thing about prom is having that one special night when you dress up and you feel like a princess, and honestly, I get to do that one night a lot.”

It was so funny because we all read the description obviously in the first episode and it was like ‘a young Robert Redford’ and we were like: ‘Who are they going to get for this?’ “Those are kind of big shoes to fill. Robert Redford. Are you kidding me?
