The Hip Hop star poses with his father, jazz musician Olu Dara, for Gap’s new 2012 holiday campaign. The advertisement is a part of a series of ads with the theme, “Comes In Every Shade.” Nas and his father’s segment is titled, “Fatherly Love” and there will be other advertisements starring Michael J. Fox and The Cast of NBC’s The New Normal that will focus on “Puppy Love”, “Modern Love” and “Best Friend Love.”
His former manager Steve Stoute, author of The Tanning Of America, definitely approves this message.
Terrence J hasn’t even officially started his new gig as the co-host of E! News yet and already he’s sitting down with big names for candid interviews. He recently sat down for a rare interview with Chris Brown and got the tea on the good deeds that Chris has been dedicating himself to lately. During the interview, Chris chatted about his new foundation, Symphonic Love, as well as his desire to give back, his greatest accomplishment and why he felt the need to speak up in court during a hearing recently.
Stacey Dash wants her voice to be heard! And so she’s put her thoughts on the Presidential Election in a 1,344 word essay.
TMZ received the 3 page document from Stacey today, and in it she revealed her overall thoughts on the election, the criticism she received for voting for Romney and why President Obama did not receive her support this time around. She said:
I voted for Obama in 2008. Yes, I was part of the overwhelming majority that swept President Obama into his historic election! I hadn’t known anything about him until he earned the Democratic nomination. He’s brilliant, understated, ethical, a great husband and father. President Obama will always be remembered as one of the greatest leaders this United States of America has ever known.
At the end of the day we are in this together. This is Our . I do not want to be a part of the hateful voices insulting each other. I want to be a part of the voices that helps shape the future. Don’t you? Perhaps I publically endorsed Romney from a slightly naive place, thinking that I could speak my voice without being criticized in such racially charged and hateful tones.
People get it wrong. My vote
So it looks as though Kelly is pretty much sealing thewhen it comes to her lane being sensual records that you can throw on in the bedroom. First she gave us, “Motivation” and then she dropped some sexy lyrics on the chorus of Luda’s, “Representin’”. Now, she’s back with “Ice”, where she sings lyrics like:
You put the pillow (right there)
Underneath my back
Got me up against the window (right now)
We got no shame, we going in
He hates it when I use my hands
He got me saying, ‘damn my man knows what he’s doing’
In the new video for the track, she rocks a bob cut and bra top whileoff her toned up body.
It’s just 12 more days before Mary Jane Riri drops her new LP, Unapologetic and already her album snippets have made their way online. Judging from the first listen, she successfully infuses Hip Hop, Pop and Dance on the album and it still manages to sound cohesive.
Out of 14 tracks, there are five features that include Eminem, Future, Mikky Ekko, David Guetta and (surprise! surprise!) Chris Brown. The melody and beat on the Chris Brown track actually sound like a 90′s throwback with Rihanna singing, “Ain’t nobody’s business, just mine and my baby!“ I can imagine they jumped in the studio and made this track around the time that Rihanna was spotted in various New York City nightspots cuddled up with Chris.
The album starts off with “Fresh Off The Runway” which has a beat similar to Nicki Minaj’s “HOV Lane”. On the track, Rihanna lets out her inner ratchet while singing lyrics like, “I bet you n-ggas gonna be like ‘B-tch this my f-cking song‘ and ‘Now I’m standing in the bank line throwing up my gang signs.“ Another Hip Hop highlight and a guaranteed smash in the clubs will be the song, “Pour it up” which has a beat similar to Juicy J’s “Bands a Make Her Dance.” On the track, Rihanna sings: “Valet cost a hundred bills, (still got more money), all up in my (still got more money), who cares how you haters feel (still got more money), call Jay up and close a deal ( still got more money) [...] All I see is signs, all I see is dollar signs. .” Folks are gonna be in the club with their drinks up, losing their mind to this one. Guaranteed.
Mariah Carey blesses us with the vocals we’ve all fell in love with throughout the span of her career in a new tribute to President Obama. The song, titled “Bring It On ,” was written earlier this year and first performed by Mariah in June at a fundraiser event in New York . Back then, she tweeted that she had just finished performing the track, which she wrote especially for the event, and that she wished she could put it out.
After it was announced that President Obama was re-elected into office last night, Jermaine Dupri posted the song on Global 14 and it began spreading like wildfire. Mariah sounds amazing on the song while backed by a choir as she sings:
We just everyday people trying to make it through the pain
We unintentionally hurt each other, playing silly
But when it all comes down to win or lose, don’t give up the fight
Cause strength is what we need, and love can save our lives
So Bring it On Home
You Can Bring It Home
Bring It On home
I know we gon’ bring it home
So when you down and frustrated, let them all keep debating, because we gon win
And Everybody be prepared to do the best that you can do because we going in
Although Halle B says that she is at her best when she’s rocking short hair, she is slaying in her recentin Russia’s Interview Magazine. For the 70′s inspired photo shoot, she dons retro shades and platform heels while looking fierce in a wild, unkempt fro.
It seems as though Interview magazine just keeps it coming with these shoots that feature celebs outside of their normal element. Just last month, they featured Brad Pitt in a photospread wearing Bob Marley inspired dreadlocks.
Four more years!
Even though it was a very tense night while watching the votes come in, President Barack Obama was re-elected for a second term last night. It all came down to that swing, but eventually President Obama claimed victory with 303 electoral votes, while Mitt Romney had just 206. The election was also swayed this time around by the Latino vote (the fastest growing minority group in America) with President Obama snagging 72 percent of their support nationwide. Women were also concerned about and their reproductive rights which helped the President snag 53 percent of their vote.
Last night, supporters grooved to music by Al Green, Frankie Beverly & Maze, and even some Beyonce while waving flags in excitement before the president came out to Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed Delivered.” He was accompanied by Michelle Obama and his daughters Sasha and Malia who he thanked during his victory speech:
I wouldn’t be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago. Let me say this publicly. Michelle, I have never loved you more. I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you, too, as our nation’s first lady.
Sasha and Malia — before our very eyes, you’re growing up to become two strong, smart, beautiful young women, just like your mom. And I am so proud of you guys. But I will say that for now, one dog’s probably enough. [laughter]
