Shots fired? Kanye West performing in Hammersmith Apollo in London decides to get some things off his chest namely him obviously not liking Justin Timberlake’s new comeback single “Suit and Tie” featuring his best buddy Jay Z. This will obviously be talked about for weeks to come.
Official video after the teaser, trailer, and lyric video for JT’s comeback single “Suit and Tie” ft. Jay Z.
Justin Timberlake‘s “Play” cologne (rhymes with “alone,” remember) for Givenchy tries to emulate handheld gadgets with Play/Rewind/Forward touch buttons, but it’s all a trick. You can never rewind to that less-smelly, less-desperate time before you bought this stuff.
Influenced, in the most irritating way, by “mobile multimedia gadgets, those quintessential objects of modernity and style that have become both everyday objects and icons of our era,” this cologne features a touch-based play button that presumably sprays whatever club-scented girl-repellent lies within the bottle. It’s a pretty silly idea and actually features poor design: No 3.5mm headphone jack? Did JT learn nothing from the T-Mobile G1? But if you want to smell like an international pop star, or at least like an international pop star’s publicist, it’s available in Europe right now. [Givenchy via Boing Boing Gadgets]
Ever since I found out CiCi was a fellow Scorpio I been in love, so here goes here captivating performance on SNL. Go and cop that album and show the lil’ lady some love.
This sorta makes perfect sense. She is known for her sexiness so why not capitalize? Just can’t wait to see the print ads and commercials!
SYDNEY (Reuters) – Singer Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” at the Superbowl made headlines four years ago when her bustier ripped. Now, she really wants people to see her underwear, and is launching her own lingerie line.
The Grammy-winning singer has joined forces with Sydney-based designer Bruno Schiavi to create Pleasure Principle, a lingerie line named after her 1987 global hit.
Schiavi, who founded the Jupi Corporation in 1996, has previously partnered with Australian singer Delta Goodrem and actress Priscilla Presley to create underwear lines.
Jackson, 42, said the collection would be lacy and sexy.
“You will see a lot of satin and lace combined and rich colors such as burgundy and beige, silver and peach as well as your classic black and white,” Jackson said in a statement. “It makes you feel incredible and offers variety as diverse as the women who will wear it.”
The brand’s first collection will debut in U.S. department stores in November with 14 bra styles and sizes ranging from 32A to 44G. The line also will be launched in Australia, Japan and Europe.
This is one case that will just not go away. I knew there was some type of opposition to the fine but I had no idea that this would still be playing out over the last few years.
Whoever saw her breast and was offended is probably way over it and if they are not they need some serious help. And just for a view or two extra we had to rightfully offend and post the pic and video:

R&B singer/songwriter Robin Thicke is gearing up for his third solo release, Something Else, this summer.
Unlike 2006′s The Evolution of Robin Thicke, which featured collabo’s with Lil’ Wayne, Pharrell and Faith Evans, Something Else was entirely written and produced by Thicke.
SOHH recently got a chance to listen to the album, which Thicke calls “wine and bubbly music.” The horn laden “Magic” will be the first single off the disc, according to Billboard, with the uptempo “Side Step” possibly being released second. Other tracks on the album include “Harmony,” a feel good song about a girl who discovers her inner-beauty; and “Loverman.”
Evolution peaked at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 and topped the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It has sold 1.5 million copies in the U.S., according to the Nielsen SoundScan.

With the music industry sales in a death-fall, the honchos at Def Jam and Warner are actually having a pretty good spring. Can’t miss artists Mariah Carey and Madonna have done serious damage to longstanding Elvis chart records and have their eyes firmly planted on The Beatles next.
Janet who has received a luke-warm response to her latest project is probably kicking herself.
As expected, Mariah Carey moved past Elvis Presley and into sole possession of second place for most No. 1 singles in the rock era, as “Touch My Body” soared 14 places on the Billboard Hot 100 to become the 18th chart-topper of her career.
Presley also was nudged from his standing as the recording artist with the most top-10 hits in the rock era, as Madonna surpassed him with her 37th top 10, “4 Minutes

Pop superstar Madonna has again changed the game with her upcoming promotion and marketing for her latest album Hard Candy due to released next month. With a new single with Justin Timberlake gaining traction, she has leveraged her power to cut deals with advertisers who will align her songs in commercials for their products.
In addition to getting fat checks from major corporations she is also getting the a ton of free promotion which will sustain her music in the minds of consumers. Great marketing moves that artists from all genres should take a look at. (wonder if Big Daddy Kane will make an appearance)
