Music In Ya Ear!: Rihanna ft. Drake – “What’s My Name?”

Rihanna’s steamy collaboration Drake, the Island-infused love jam “What’s My Name”, off of Rihanna‘s ‘LOUD’ album, is the number one song in the country right now. Perfect timing for the song’s video to drop, no? In the video, Rihanna and Drake get touchy-feely with one another.

Drake told the New York Times back in June about his brief relationship with Rihanna after she had asked him to write a song for her (that was never released).

“I was a pawn,” he said. “You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, wow, this feels terrible.”

Looks like the two artists were able to kiss (on camera) and make up to make this sweet new video. We’ll cheers to that!

Check out the video and download the track after the jump…

Breaking News: Woman Claims to be Michael Jackson’s Love Child

This story sounds a little crazy, but if what Mocienne Jackson says is true, that would make her the daughter of the King of Pop and Dr. Barbara Ross-Lee, the first African-American woman to administer a medical school in the United States. Somebody pay up, because this woman is long overdue for her trust fund baby lifestyle!

Here’s the deal, Mocienne Petit Jackson has filed a claim in Los Angeles County Superior Court asking a judge for permission to conduct a DNA test to prove she is Michael Jackson’s biological daughter. Mocienne Jackson claims that back in 1975, when Michael Jackson was a 17-year-old he secretly impregnated her mother Barbara. Barbara, is the sister of legendary, pop diva Diana Ross! MPJ says that when she was 9 years old, Michael’s mom, Katherine Jackson, devised a plan to “abduct” her and send her to Belgium to protect Michael’s “reputation.”  According to Mocienne, all 7 of her abductors were later murdered. She is currently living in the Netherlands and has now decided to come forward with her story, so she can “formally claim my part of my father’s inheritance.” Mocienne also wants custody of Michael Jackson’s children so she can give them a “more normal life.”  She also made it a point to state that she was diagnosed with Vitiligo, the same skin condition Michael Jackson suffered from. At this point, The Jackson and Ross families have not responded to the allegations.

So what do you think? Could this woman be the offspring of these two individuals?

Celebrity News: Celebs Speak out Against Arizona

Of course Arizona wasn’t going to get away with such a bold move without Hollywood speaking out! Celebrities are voicing their opinions on Governor Jan‘s strict immigration law.

International star Shakira visited Arizona Thursday and met with officials to learn more about the law. After a meeting with Phoenix’s Latin Community the Grammy winning star had this to say:

“…It violates the civil and human rights of the Latino Community…It goes against all human dignity, against the principles of most Americans I know.”

The singer who at one point stated, “I’m here pretty much undocumented,” said the Constitution “exists to protect the rights of people living in a nation with or without documents.”

We’re talking about human beings here.

Ricky Martin, George Lopez, Eva Longoria-Parker and Jessica Alba have voiced their opinions via Twitter.

“Equality is understanding that we all come from the same place. Racial profiling should never be tolerated, in the U.S. or anywhere in the world. We’re moving backwards. Scary.”

He was joined by comedian George Lopez, and actresses Eva Longoria-Parker and Jessica Alba.

“AZ announces the first Spray Tanning Shop that sprays you lighter “the Casper”..Tougher to Profile.

“The crackdown in ARIZONA continues..The New Taco Bell TORTADA has been outlawed .by GOV Jan Brewer…The changing the name of PATRON to make it more ARIZONA friendly..Now..PAT RON”

Music News: Suge Knight Takes Kanye to Court Over Miami Shooting


Marion “Suge” Knight and Kanye West will go head-to-toe in federal court. The December 6th trial, which will be held in Miami, is the result of a 2005 shooting at a Miami Beach party.  As many as six shots were fired at the celebrity event which was hosted by Kanye West Suge Knight was shot in the right leg, but there were few witnesses to come forward, and no arrests were made. Knight‘s attorney, Marc Brumer, has stated that Knight had $200,000 in medical bills from the gunshot wound which shattered his femur. He is seeking total damages of well over $1 million. In his lawsuit, Knight is claiming that Kanye and the Club’s owners failed to provide the security necessary to keep people with weapons from entering the event.

Dear Diary: The Misunderstood Man – Michael Jackson

Hello Readers,

I came across a blog a few days ago, and read a post that they wrote about Michael Jackson. It was interesting to read in detail, what their thoughts of him were. I thought I would share that post with you.  You can do so below after the photo jump.

.¸¸.·`¯`·.¸¸.ஐ:

In recent days, ten to be exact, I’ve been enthralled in the world of Michael Jackson. You may have noticed the number of MJ posts since his passing on June 25, 2009. There was more enlightening information about the man that I was tempted to post but decided not to so I wouldn’t bombard the blog with MJ all day. However, I felt my first written post about Mr. Jackson wasn’t enough. I have learned more about the man behind the music since that day and became more inspired and amazed by him. I also felt guilty.

He was truly misunderstood and believe me, I know what that feels like–it’s annoying, it’s hurtful and it’s frustrating. And like so many Americans, I, too, misunderstood Michael Jackson. No, I didn’t think he was a child molester. However, I didn’t rule out the possibility either. I just didn’t want to believe it for there was no true evidence from the two cases and I just didn’t want to think that he did it and fall into the media’s sensationalism.

Nevertheless, I did wonder about his seemingly bizarre behavior and his endless love for children and child-like things. I did wonder about his skin color and the ever changing structure of his face. I did ponder over his career and how much love and respect he received during the Thriller and Bad era versus the Dangerous and Invincible era. I wasn’t that excited about the comeback tour. I guess, in a sense, I wasn’t paying that much attention to Michael Jackson. I didn’t know the man at all and like I said in another post, I was not a fanatic. I only appreciated the music and the performance. The rest was up to interpretation.

Sadly, I didn’t realize how brilliant, caring and interesting this man was, and still is in spirit, until after his transition. I read and listened to a speech he did at Oxford University in 2001, which I didn’t know about until after June 25th. It was truly a raw, honest and beautiful speech. It made me laugh and cry. It also made me realize how wrong I was about him. He didn’t do anything to those kids. He couldn’t possibly harm a child. He loves children too much to ever do that. He even said in an interview that he would slit his wrists before hurting a child in any way.

Even though I’ve never fault him for those charges, I still felt extremely guilty after that speech, almost to the point of feeling slightly sick to my stomach. To be excuse of such a heinous act and to have almost everyone look at you differently, to one degree or another, must have been the most painful feeling. To be rumored of not liking who you are over and over again due to a disease that couldn’t be controlled must have been frustrating. To be constantly questioned about it and to be constantly not believed had to have been a nightmare. To be put in a situation where you are trying to do the best by these children by providing them their childhood with unconditional love and support, financial and otherwise, to only be subjected to their parents’ greed must have been heart wrenching. To be labeled as “wacko,” a “freak” and other negative names must have hurt like hell. And to know that there is a possibility that all of this was happening due to the extreme success of a talented, intelligent Black man, who outsmarted the big honchos in the music industry, made him believe that it was a conspiracy against him and rightly so.

He was not perfect at all. He had flaws. He made mistakes. To his omission, he compensated the lack of childhood in his early years by building Neverland Ranch and having friendships with children. He outbid a friend, Paul McCartney for the publishing rights of Beatles songs and might have married Lisa Marie Presley for the wrong reasons. He was addicted to painkillers at one point in his life. He also had too many unnecessary cosmetic surgeries on his nose. He said things that would be deemed questionable. He did things that most would say is odd and eccentric. He was a human being in all its complexity.

I don’t want to make him appear to be a saint but I do believe wholeheartedly that his intentions were good in his music and in his personal life. He wanted to end the mistreatment of true artists in the music business, especially Black artists. He wanted to help heal the world through an initiative of rebuilding the parent/child relationship. He spoke out against racism, injustice, police brutality, greed and other social issues that America still haven’t dealt with, through song, speeches and interviews. As one of his bodyguards said, he was the most misunderstood person in the world.

Michael said in one interview that if a lie is told over and over again, you will begin to believe it. He also said that the truth will outlive a lie. I think with his recent transition, people are finally seeing the truth and appreciating the music, the dance and the man of Michael Jackson.

And I have a funny feeling that he would forgive us all for misunderstanding him while he was here on this Earth.

R.I.P. Michael.
