R&B Star Beyonce Performed Two Songs Off Album 4 On The Daytime Show The View

28 Jul Beyonce-The-View-100394

Beyonce says she planned to have children by 30, but now “that’s something God has to decide”.

In a frank new interview, she also revealed she got starstruck when she met Clint Eastwood.

The R ‘n’ B star performed two songs off her new album 4 in an appearance in daytime talk show The View and also opened up about taking some time off work in the last year.

“It was beginning to get fuzzy, I couldn’t even tell which day or which city I was at. I would sit at award shows and they would give me an award and I was just thinking about the next performance.

“I never really thought about how fortunate I was – it was onto the next project and the next day.”

Instead, she did some travelling and accompanied husband Jay-Z on tour.

“I went to see museums, ballets, the Great Wall of China, the Louvre – everywhere I had been to but never got to see,” said Beyonce, 30 in September.

Asked who she was, she had to think for a second before saying: “I’m a wife. I’m a daughter. I’m a friend… and I’m a woman. I thought 30 was so old back then! You know, one day (it will happen).

“That’s something that God has to decide. When it happens, it happens. I’m just so happy to be in this place in my life.”

Beyonce then confirmed she is working on a remake of A Star is Born, playing the role made famous by Judy Garland in 1954.

She said she was very excited to meet Clint Eastwood, set to direct the project. “He was so elegant and very charming and witty,” she said. “I was so star-struck, didn’t know what to say! I was so honored that he believed in me.”

Britney Spears Has Released A Sample Of New Song I Wanna Go On Twitter

20 Jun Britney-Spears-I-Wanna-Go

 

Britney Spears has released a 20-second snippet of a new song, “I Wanna Go,” on Twitter today (Feb. 22), two days after she previewed 10 seconds of another new track, “Inside Out.” Along with first single “Hold It Against Me,” the two songs are set to appear on the pop star’s seventh full-length, “Femme Fatale,” due out Mar. 29.

Produced by Max Martin and Shellback, “I Wanna Go” sounds like another synth-heavy dance track buoyed by a whistled melody. In the 20-second preview, a slow build allows the beat to steadily increase before dropping out as Spears sings in a staccato, “I-I-I wanna go-o-o all the way-ay-ay.”

“Femme Fatale” executive producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald originally posted a link to the “I Wanna Go” preview on Twitter earlier today, and Spears posted it soon after and called Martin “amazing.” Along with Dr. Luke, Martin, Shellback and producer Billboard, Spears has been in the studio with Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am, who wrote that he and the pop star had recorded a new song for “Femme Fatale” together on Twitter last Thursday (Feb. 17).

Although a second official single for “Femme Fatale” has yet to be chosen, “Hold It Against Me” is still going strong: the song remains at No. 10 on this week’s Hot 100, and the official music video has earned over 10 million views on Spears’ VEVO channel since debuting last Thursday.

Rapper Nicki Minaj Cover’s Elle Magazine In A White Mini Fringe Dress

7 Apr Nicki-Minaj-Elle-Magazine-745934A

Rapper Nicki Minaj graces the cover of Elle Magazine’s upcoming music issue. Minaj looks absolutely stunning in a white fringe dress in the black and white photo. Fans eager to get their hands on the issue featuring Minaj’s Elle cover won’t have to wait long: it hits news stands next Tuesday.

Nicki Minaj looks sublime on the Elle cover, wearing a mini-dress created by designer Mark Fast. To be fair, Minaj is quickly becoming a true fashion icon–so virtually anything she wears looks fantastic. This shot, however, is beyond amazing.

Minaj is also interviewed in the magazine, which includes pieces on several other notable women in the music industry. Among them are Stevie Nicks, Gwen Stefani, Willow Smith, and Rihanna. Very good company, Ms. Minaj! She tells Elle that she “always wanted to play with the boys,” adding, “I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character–a superhero.”

Nicki Minaj is quickly accomplishing that goal. Minaj is a force to be reckoned with in the industry and with her talents, she’ll likely reach “superhero” status soon, if she hasn’t already.

BRITNEY SPEARS NEW ALBUM FEMME FATALE IS NUMBER 1#

6 Apr Britney-Spears- Femme-Fatale-Album-Cover-203948

Britney Spears is still hot. But how hot?

Her new album, “Femme Fatale” (Jive), released last week, has become her sixth No. 1 on Billboard’s chart. That puts her in lofty company: the only women to have that many No. 1 albums are Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson (both with six), Madonna (seven) and Barbra Streisand (nine). And the video for the album’s first single, “Hold It Against Me,” had been viewed nearly 33 million times on YouTube as of Wednesday afternoon.

Yet sales for “Femme Fatale” were relatively low for a superstar like Ms. Spears. The album sold 276,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, a significant drop from the opening-week sales for her last album, “Circus,” which sold 506,000 when it was released in 2008. In fact, Billboard said, of Ms. Spears’s seven studio albums, only her debut, “ … Baby One More Time,” sold fewer copies, moving 121,000 in its first week in early 1999 (though that was enough for No. 1).

Also on the charts this week, the Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa’s album “Rolling Papers” (Atlantic) opens at No. 2 with 197,000, and “21” (XL/Columbia), by the British singer Adele, holds at No. 3 with 94,000. After six weeks of release in the United States, Adele’s album is nearing a million sales, but back home she is a phenomenon: “21” has been No. 1 there for 10 consecutive weeks, beating a record set in 1990 by Madonna’s “Immaculate Collection” for the longest that an album by a woman has stayed in the top spot. If Adele makes it to 12 weeks she will tie Bob Marley’s “Legend,” released in 1984, for the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 by anyone, male or female. In Britain, “21” has sold 1.8 million copies.

Back on the American charts, Katy Perry’s song “E.T.” holds its top spot as a digital download, with 327,000 sales.

TRACKLIST:

1. “Till The World Ends” (Produced by Dr. Luke, Max Martin and Billboard)

2. “Hold It Against Me” (Produced by Dr. Luke, Max Martin and Co-produced by Billboard)

3. “Inside Out” (Produced by Dr. Luke, Max Martin and Billboard)

10. “Trip To Your Heart” (Produced by Bloodshy, Henrik Jonback and Magnus)

11. “Gasoline” (Produced by Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco)

16. “Don’t Keep Me Waiting” (Produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins)

Summary: This week Britney Spears triumphs with her newest album Femme Fatale (Jive Records) bowing at No. 1 on U.S. albums charts. The chart-topping entry makes Spears the first female ever to have six No.1 album debuts, and marks the second biggest album debut of the year. The album also debuts at No. 1 in Canada, Australia and Korea and enters in the Top 10 in 15 other countries.

The release of Femme Fatale follows the recent video premiere of the apocalyptic club thumper and Top 10 hit, “Till The World Ends” on VEVO. The video is currently on heavy rotation on MTV, MTV Hits, MTV Tres and VH-1.

Additionally, Spears is earning accolades with Femme Fatale: Rolling Stone magazine gave the album 4 out 5 stars and claims that “Femme Fatale may be Britney’s best album…”. The Associated Press adds, “Spears once again sizzles, and her flame burns as bright as ever,” and People Magazine raves, “One of the best start-to-finish albums of her career…”

Femme Fatale is executive produced by longtime collaborators Max Martin and Dr. Luke. The iconic superstar, Britney Spears has sold nearly 70 million albums worldwide to date with her previous releases …Baby One More Time (1999); Oops!… I Did It Again (2000); Britney (2001); In The Zone (2003); Blackout (2007); Circus (2008).

Summary: I picked up a few albums last night. I am really love my Ipod it goes everywhere I go. I am loving all the new music that came out this year in 2010. So I needed to purchase the albums to update my cd collection for this year.

Have to have the update in new music to keep those workouts powerful at the gym. Always adding new music to keep the Ipod on point! Never getting bored with my Ipod!

Also, for the day’s that I am working extra hard on my Pr stuff. Without music in ones life is like a song without a melody~

I am a huge fan of Christina Aguilera. I own every single album this was one I didn’t have so now my Christina cd collection is now complete.

I absolutely love her music and wanted to share what I love from my personal collection of Cd’s. So I picked her  Bionic album up last night at Target $17.99.

New Music From Eric Benet, Kandi Burruss, Lil Twist: My First Celebrity PR Experience

My Experience: I received a text message from my friend Sean asking me to goto a Pr party for Kandi Burruss and Eric Benet. It was 6pm already I actually was on my way to workout.

I kept staring at the text message. Asking myself should I take this opportunity that’s presenting itself to me at this very moment in time. Or should just pass up a good opportunity.

Sean has become a good friend of mine over this short period of time. We grew closer in friendship the last 7 months I been here in Dallas. He is a talented person himself. Always following his passions in his life. Which I very much respect about him.

I showed my husband the text Sean sent me. Then I asked him if I should go. He was very supportive and agreed that I should go check it out for myself. Also, wished me a good time.

I been a stay home mom for so long. However, I always dream t of Public Relation type jobs. So to be in a place where all that was going on that night was Pr. I have to say it was one of the many great experiences of my life.

Sean introduced me to a few of his friends in the business, as well as he wanted me to really live in the moment of great possibilities.

A few times when Sean walked away I had to ask myself how did I get here. How can such and opportunity come a knockin. Then I remembered when watching the secret. Ask and it is given.

Opportunities never come or present themselves in ways that you expect them to come.

When you talk about it you therefore are putting it into existence. Therefore later it becomes your reality.

Sean has asked me numerous times to get out and enjoy Dallas. However, after a hard break up with a best friend before moving here 8 months ago, and leaving a state where I thought I was going to call home just to start all over was just simply exhausting to me. I truly just wasn’t ready. Just to go out and have fun again.

After months of Sean just really sharing with me how important is it for me to live out my dreams in hair and make up, and people if I can not even make the steps to want to embrace my new environment and city that I currently now reside in. How are my passions in my life going to become my reality then.

Sean and his friend Tee Bone. Tee Bone is a reality star himself. Has been on I Love New York. I am surrounded by them often being that we all train at the same gym. So there is no excuses for me passing up good people who care and who want to see me win in life.

Now that I know there’s more to life then me being a stay home mom. You lose sense of self when you don’t surround yourself with the things that truly make us happy. I love people. I love inspiring and making a difference in a person’s life.

Please do not get me wrong. Nothing wrong with being a stay home mom but my son is 14 old enough to stay home alone. So I did my job now. I love being a mom, and a wife but I am ready to live my passions and the life I been dreaming of.

I know that Public Relations of any type. Or just being out there impacting people in life. Is what I am truly passionate and good at! It brings profound joy to my heart and soul!

This experience of me stepping out of my shell as well as my comfort zone has taught me. That anything is possible. You have to have confidence, faith, and the actions to make it a reality. You have to really do something completely different.

I met so many wonderful and talented people last night and just like Sean said it’s only the beginning. Now that I got my feet wet just a little bit I can’t wait to get in deeper to see what comes next.

I just couldn’t believe how other Pr people were willing to take my name and number and willing to connect me to other people who are in the business or at least give you a direction onwhere to go.

So remember never allow yourself to fall short. If someone keeps pushing you to share positive experiences take them on their offer and see what it can bring you.

You don’t know until you try! Don’t give up on hope, passions, and the strong will to live a powerful life.

Fulfillment is everything in life!

Eric Benet, Kandi Burruss, Lil Twist – Share their new music with the city of Dallas at All Star’s Lounge

Eric Benet and Kandi Burruss share new music by giving us all a taste of their new albums coming out this month.

What a night it was! Everyone gathered at the All Star’s Lounge here in Downtown Dallas.

Where Eric Benet, Kandi Burruss, Lil’ Twist from Lil Wayne’s record label all made a guest appearance.

We all gotta chance to listen to the wonderful new music these to singer and song writer’s offer us on there new upcoming albums available in stores this Holiday season.

We all got to listen to Eric Benet and Kandi Burruss sing live up close and personal. It was absolutely a wonderful night in downtown Dallas last night. While making their way across the country.

I absolutely enjoyed myself while in the company of Sean Owens, Krista Kelley and few other of their friends. So many Pr people under one roof.

While Eric Benet was being interviewed. All Star Lounge served food, drinks, and nice music was being played in the background. Which made for a wonderful and deliteful night.

I myself got to meet a few of my friend Sean Owens PR friends. I met quite a few models that night that were there as well to represent their Pr company that they work under.

My experience with Eric Benet was such a short quick but rather delightful moment I might add. The room was slightly cold I was kind of shaking to the coolness of the room but also from the fact that he had his arms wrapped around me. He mentioned “Wow you are shaking!” I said ” Yes I am so nervous!” after he said so was he. My nerves then went away.

He looked right into my eyes….. and I swear that moment was lost for a second. What a nice guy. Beautiful person. I have to say and incredible singer.

He definitely is a class act! So you don’t own any of his music you need to google and and check out a few tracks on Youtube if you  can. What a beautiful voice that man has.

As he was being interviewed a young man with the name Lil’ Twist entered the room with his mother and entourage and then signed autographs for his fans. As well as took photos with his many fans.

I had no clue who this young man was until someone explained that he is new talent from Dallas. I recently just moved here.  I am from the Chicago, Detroit area. So when it comes to the talent of Dallas I would not know who that might be these days. Now that I am resident I am doing my best to learn who’s hot and learn the music culture of this city.

The night ended with beautiful Kandi Burruss singing her tracks giving us a feel what’s on her album and what each song meant to her as she wrote the album.

So you got to see a fun and more personal side of Kandi Burruss. She was very fun and down to earth and always smiling.

This was a great experience to have met her and to be able to be photographed with such a talented woman.

All in all it was my first PR party experience. This was in a club setting but not a club going event. Very classy and cool mood that went on through the night with finger food, and drinks.

Quite a bit of photo sessions and interviews were constantly going on through the night.

Sean Owen’s let me a bit into his world. I have to say what a world it truly is. I can only imagine what comes next!

My life in Dallas after all turned out to be full of wonderful people, great experience’s and powerful connections!

When you think that after being a stay home mom for so many years that my life would unfold the way it has the 8 months I been here.

When you think dreams don’t come true they do! Always when you least expect it!

When you think that your life is reached it worst…. it’s then and only then your life is just going through changes of growth for self improvement.

All dreams are possible. You have to believe have faith and be dedicated to your passions and know that at any moment your life can open up for you!

Fantasia, Eric Benet, and Kandi Burruss will join forces for tour this Fall/Winter 2010-2011.
