Produced by D. Mile. From brand new mix tape- Chamber of Diaries.

The mix tape rides, but this is easily my favorite today.

When Kalenna appeared in Dirty Money- it seemed to many people that Diddy had just magically made this woman appear from somewhere. Sorry guys- he is not that powerful. Actually my first learning of Kalenna was as a songwriter prior to her Dirty Money days.

I'd heard some of her music on youtube and fallen in love with her tone before I learned more about her pen game. As much as we'd like to think of her as new- Kalenna is very well a vet in this business, she's just managed in recent years to reach a broader audience.

Her creative genius is insane. Her style is insane. Her voice-yes insane, but what I really like about Kalenna is that she's a sweet heart. I accidentally ran into her one night in the studio here in Atlanta a couple of years ago, and she was just way familiar and approachable. That genuine spirit is what wins you over (if her extremely fly presence isn't enough).

Kalenna is in a league all of her own. Creatively, this mix tape is exactly what I would expect from her, but even better. It's all sorts of colors and shapes colliding into bold lyrics and sweet melodies. She's passionate and extremely intelligent concerning her sound and approach.  Kalenna's musicality is just different..not like anything the average partaker of today's music is used to. You get a chance to peek at it a bit on Chamber of Diaries.

Now, Kalenna makes music for a very mature audience for sure. With artistry theres always that desire to push people beyond their limits. The idea of forcing you out of your box- thats what every good artist does. Some of the stronger concepts and ideas presented on this mix tape may not sit well with every body's taste buds, but I guarantee that something will. In it's totality it's just simply good music.

Listening to the mix tape for the first time last week took me back to the hay days of Missy Elliot. That bold, eclectic, and colorful sound and delivery. That feel great vibe. The feeling that your ears have never heard such incredible sounds before. Easily Kalenna gives you that "I can't help but knock my head and scrunch my face" on one banging track, then sings to your heart in the next. Easily one of the best mix tapes I've heard.

Congrats Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner Welcome Son!

Bennifer part dos happily announced yesterday that Jennifer had delivered their third baby- a boy named Samuel Garner Afleck!

Actors Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner have been one of Hollywoods most beloved couples or a few years now. They already have 2 daughters together, Violet-6 and Seraphina -3 so I am sure a little boy is a perfect fit!

This message was posted on Ben's Facebook page yesterday to share the news with their fans and supporters;

@IggyAzalea Says XXL's Freshmen Class 2012 Cover is for All the Girls

Hmm..this list  is a bit iffy for some people. To many people's surprise this year's  XXL Freshman Class cover features female Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea. Im not really sure why it's a surprise. If you've had your ear to the streets at all in recent entertainment news, you know she's what lots of people are yapping about.

To my dismay, it looks like people honestly feel some sorta way about her being on the cover. Whether you're a fan or not- as Necole reported, she is the very first female to be featured in the infamous list. Which is major, not just for her, but for every woman as she took to her twitter account to say.

Sometimes you have to look beyond your own feelings about something and peep the bigger picture. Even if you don't respect her movement. Atlanta native and the "King of the South" TIP has already given her his stamp of approval. TIP is overseeing her first solo album under Interscope records set to be out this year.

She's not for everybody, but who is? If you can't respect her flow- respect what her covering XXL represents! Go Iggy!

Third Student Pronounced Dead After Ohio School Shooting

Following a heart wrenching school shooting in Chardon, Ohio another student- a third student has died due to gunshot wounds. The shooting that happened on Monday had already claimed the lives of two students; Russell King Jr., 17, and the first victim, student Daniel Parmertor.

King died this morning while Daniel was pronounced dead on Monday. Early this afternoon the family of Demetrius Hewlin confirmed that he too had died from wounds he'd received on Monday.

Little is known about the gunman TJ Lane. He is currently awaiting court-where the judge will determine whether or not to try him as an adult.  Lane is considered a "withdrawn, but nice kid" by students and teachers alike.  

He opened fire at Chardon High School- but was a student at an alternative school. He was simply there waiting to catch a bus to his school. While looking for signs, it was obvious that Lang was suffering from some serious frustrations as his Facebook page featured a rant that ended in "Die all of you."

Lang said he'd stolen the .22  used to kill 3 and wound 2 students from his uncle. He is said to be cooperating with authorities. Our hearts go out to the family,friends, and community of Chardon, OH.

    Said I Wouldn't Do This But-New Video: Crash Cut-Change Shoes Change Life

    My mom is not a fan, so I said, for her sake I wouldn't post this video that came across my email this morning.

    I first heard crash cut about 7 yrs ago on a family reunion trip. Soon, he was everywhere. Every singer/musician was bumping his album. Hits like "I Qualify" & "If Man Don't Know Me" soon became staples in our cd players.

    He's now back with Change Shoes Change Life- and the video dedicated to his Grandmotherrrr Ida Bell Davis.

    With the straightest face possible I share this with you....enjoy.

    @ChrisBrown Gets Adorable Puppy- Names her Mabelline

    Chris' Girlfriend-------------------------- Karrueche RTd (and then deleted) this photo/tweet of this ADORABLE little puppy!!!

    Not really news, but a reason to smile.  For the record- this tweet then delete it stuff is REALLY ANNOYING Chris & Karrueche..seriously. Luckily Breezy came right behind her and RT'd we know it's real. lol

    Viola Davis, @JLO, & @GwynethPaltrow Red Carpet Perfection!

    Talk about GORGE! JLo who is always stunning (like she may be stunning first day of the full out flu) showed up looking exceptional in this seemingly peekaboo striped Zuhair Murad dress with a Ferragamo clutch! 

    The presenter wasn't alone in the fabulosity on the red carpet though, she had some great company in the likes of Viola Davis & Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Viola Davis wore Vera Wang gown, a Judith Leiber clutch,Jimmy Choo shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.  The first time nominee looked flawless in it all. Her most beautiful attribute though- her natural hair. The "The Help" actress usually is adorned with a wig hiding her beautiful natural look. She says her husband encouraged her to leave the wig behind and I'm so glad he did!

    Gwyneth Paltrow (Who most likely is Blue Ivy's REAL Godmother) shined brightly as usual in Tom Ford.   The actress turned singer made a very bold fashion statement in the full length gown accompanied by the full length jacket- amazing!

    Check out their stunning looks below!

    Press Play: @QParker112- Show You How

    Singer/Songwriter Q Parker is gearing up to take over the charts once again. His latest single, Show You How is the answer to the r&b drought all real music lovers have been suffering through for years. The record has been climbing the charts since it dropped- and for good reason- it rides!

    Q, known for his smooth vocal approach is letting the ladies know that there is certain way we should be treated. Of course we can't hear that enough right?! It's what we like to hear it said and love to hear it sang!- and if Q Parker can do ANYTHING.. the dude can sing!

    Check it out!

    @Common & @Drake- What Beef?! Spotted Chatting at AllStar Game

    The most recent ( & relative) rap beef in the media looks to have legit been a fluke- or at least over. Common and Drake have been in headlines lately not for their great music, but because supposedly, they hate each other.

    The supposed beef had us hearing Common rap in ways we never expected him to. It was odd for me to hear him getting "street" with somebody on a song. Shots were fired non stop from both rappers and we all assumed it was to each other.

    Word got out that the two made up recently, and it looks like that is true. They were spotted last night at the All Star game as if- nothing happened.- Respect.

    Did You Miss This: @Pitbull, @ChrisBrown, & @NeYoCompound Shut Down All Star Halftime Show

    Fans were already in a frenzy yesterday when Nicki Minaj opened up the All Star game with count them- 4 of her current hits. So for the halftime show to include some of their other jams from hot artists was a plus. Pitbull who is the latin loved around the  world came out and of course he has hits for days!

    Joining him on stage for an even better show was Chris Brown!!! Of course he killed his set! Chris is currently under investigation in the case of the stolen iPhone in Miami last week. He's remained mum about the iPhone, but the media hasn't.

    Rock it or Knock it?- @Rihanna's Fashion in London

    Rih Rih is currently in London Executively (don't look that up) Producing a show and while there, she's really showing out on the fashion tip (along with not sleeping).

    Rihanna is probably known amongst other things for her impeccable sense of style. The woman can go from Belle of the Ball to hood chic/street walker without batting a pretty eyelid. So, it's no surprise to me that while in London she's adorning herself with some of the most eye catching ensembles yet.

    This is the first time the whole family has been photographed together in the public. Naturally Blue Ivy is bundled up really tight!

    Hello Blue!

    Tyler Perry's Real Life "Good Deed" Donates Remaining $98000 to Get Pastor Corey Brooks Off Roof

    We all know that Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings was actually on that roof for a reason, and that Tyler's generous gift is to do more than get Pastor Brooks down. As I previously reported, Pastor Brooks and the New Beginnings Church of Chicago where he Pastors, decided that the violence in their community had to end.

    So now for almost 100 days Pastor Brooks has been living on top of the crime infested motel they had shut down in hopes of raising enough money to destroy it and rebuild a community center. I know Pastor personally and the church family as well. He's stayed up there through some terrible weather.Actually being in the tent is a humbling experience, but to be up there for as long as Pastor Brooks has stayed is sheer faith and determination.

    Today while visiting the Tom Joyner Morning Show in Chicago to promote his new movie, ironically titled, "Good Deed" , the richest man in Hollywood- Tyler Perry got wind of New Beginnings' plight. He heard about the Pastor on the roof and simply said he was giving him the remaining $98000 to meet their goal!!! Incredible. What a miraculous thing!

    Many people have given and given, and I'm sure at times it seemed like they'd never reach their goal of almost a half a million dollars, but Pastor Brooks was sure and steadfast to the very end! So sure that even after Perry announced his gift, Brooks reiterated that he promised to stay up there until he had all the money in hand. Perry laughed and said, "Pastor, come on down from there. One thing about me is if I say I'm doing it, I'm doing it. I'll be over to visit soon.".

    I'm overjoyed at the miracle that happened today. Im happy for Pastor Brooks and his family, as well as the New Beginnings family. God is great!

    Make sure you guys go see Good Deed. Many blessings to Tyler Perry!

    Check out my Exclusive Interviews  from the Project Hood fundraiser with a few other celebs who have helped in Pastor Brook & New Beginnings' fight to save their community!

    300's Gerard Butler in Rehab

    The incredibly gorgeous Gerard Butler, most popular for his role in the blockbuster hit 300, has checked into rehab.

    From the looks of it, Gerard has been struggling with pain management for years and recently became dependent on pain killers. It is said that while surfing in December Gerard was in an accident and the pain became overbearing. After the accident he realized he was relying too much on prescription pills and decided to be a step ahead of the game and enter Betty Ford just three weeks ago.

    TMZ is reporting that cocaine abuse has been an issue as well, but his reliance on prescription medication was what drove him to seek help. He is said to be released today.

    Sigh.. yall know I love me some Gerard Butler..I wish him the best.

    Chris Brown Reportedly Under Investigation for Theft

    A young woman in Miami is claiming that late Sunday night she was Chris Brown. The youg lady filed a police report with Miami police stating that she saw Chris and Tyga enter a club and once they left she followed them and took a picture.

    According to her report, Chris got angry and snatched the $500 iphone out of Christal Spann's hands saying,
    Bitch, you're not gonna put that on the Internet!
    ..before driving off with the phone in hand. No arrests have been made, & neither has a warrant been issued, and the Miami policed dept. are stating that this case is strictly under investigation.

    This doesn't look good for Chris either way. Even if it's not totally true, it will leave the public to believe that some part of it is.

    Story Developing..


    Beyonce Launches New Spring/Summer 2012 House of Dereon Campaign

    Superwoman Beyonce is still at it. The new mommie turned even more of a fashionista following the birth of her adorable baby girl Blue Ivy. Makes perfect sense that her line House of Dereon is launching it's latest line and from the looks of it, it's best so far.

    The photograph and video released show off HOD's latest Spring/Summer line up.

    Bobbi Kristina Returns to Atlanta

    Just less than a week after her mother's burial, Bobbi Kristina has returned to Atlanta to the home they shared according to neighbors.

    Many have speculation as to why the family would allow her to come home alone after her recent anxiety attacks post her mom's death. Another source suggests that that is ludicrous, and that while she is back in the home, she is surrounded by family who loves her.

    One person who has been right by her side for years and especially throughout this time is her  mom's "Adopted son" Nicholas Gordon. Not much is known about Nicholas, but that Whitney took him in at a young age and raised him as her own. He was also a pallbearer at her funeral.

    My personal speculation though- is that he is BK's boyfriend. They may not want the world to know that Whitney let him live with them, so maybe they're masking it as if Whitney just adopted him. I may be wrong, but that just makes more sense to me.

    Bobbi Kristina naturally is mourning the loss of a mother. Some of the media is choosing to paint her as an out of control addict who is using to cope with her mother being gone. According to a family friend those rumors are not true. More than anything this young lady needs prayer and support- your hits can wait.

    Dream Tells Sway "Chris & Rihanna's Collab was Rih's doing" + New Video "Roc"

    This doesnt surprise me one bit. It actually is the way I assumed it worked out. In light of Rihanna and Chris Brown's 2 new collaborations everybody wants to understand why it had to happen. The Dream who is responsible for writing some of the biggest hits of the past few years, has worked with Rihanna many times. He is the writer of the record Birthday Cake that Chris Brown recently remixed with her.

    Naturally the Dream would be one person who's opinion matters to some as it was his song that the two remixed together. Also their (Dream and Rihanna) interactions on twitter and long history leads one to assume that the friendship is real. So his opinion wouldn't just be that of someone who doesn't know the two personally.

    Dream appeared yesterday with the homie Sway on MTV RapFix Live he opened up on how he felt about the collaboration and how it came about.

    On their relationship and him supporting her decision:
    At the end of the day, she's my friend, so whatever she wants to do is whatever she wants to do.

    On how she told him what she was going to do:
    I think I'm gonna put Chris on it" Dream says he replied, "I don't know which Chris you talkin' about, [but] OK, cool, whatever you say,"

    On her decision:
    "She's pretty smart too. The same questions that went through my mind, and I'm an artist also, had to have gone through hers..When she raised the question to me, I know she's not crazy. So my thought was you've been thinking about this, you've already thought it out, so evidently you know what reaction you gonna get."
    On the public outrage:
    "Don't say you know how to forgive when you don't. Everybody knows what took place, cool. Have the power to really forgive if that's what it is. If not, stay on that side of the fence from the beginning..It's easy to kinda throw Chris under the bus all the time, but c'mon, man. OK, we get it,"

    Dream told Sway that Rihanna gave him enough heads up to prepare for any backlash, but ultimately it was all her doing and her decision. Chris and Rihanna are still pubbing the heck out of their collaborations. Meanwhile Chris' girlfriend is laying low.....

    The Dream is currently working on a tour just announced on twitter! This dude is extremely talented..I'm sure it will be a hit show. He just released his grown up video for his grown up record Roc..check it out below.

    Adele flips the bird at British music awards ceremony

    After winning two awards Tuesday at the UK's Brit Music Awards ceremony, songstress Adele made an obscene gesture when her acceptance speech was cut short. Seems rather unbecoming of Adele, still on a high after winning big at the Grammy Awards.

    Don't Believe the Hype Cissy Houston is NOT Playing That!

    There have been many reports all over the internet since Whitney's homegoing that her baby girl Bobbi Kristina had disappeared for hours after the funeral and was caught gettin high.

    I even received a couple of texts and emails asking why I hadn't blogged it on my site. My answer was clear. I'd seen the report the moment it dropped and the source wasn't credible at. all. So I decided instead of perpetuating such a horrible lie (if it isn't true) I'd wait until a credible source reported it.

    Now here we are a few days later and it looks like it was a rumor after all. Our friends at Global Grind got the real scoop.

    New York Daily News is reporting that 2 sources close to the family released these statements:

    "She was with the family the whole time,we all went to a restaurant we call after a funeral or home celebration, a repast, where everybody goes and sits and talks and eats. She was there, she was there yesterday, she's been with the family these last couple of days."

    "In the aftermath of Whitney’s death, she’s (Cissy) running the show,” Cissy Houston “couldn’t do nothing with Whitney and the hangers-on, moochers and enablers that sucked the life out of her,” but “she has the reins of this now.”
    So maybe just maybe Bobbi Kristina was at her mom's repast all night with a family that loves her...just maybe.

    Jay & Beyonce Tonight at Knicks/Nets Game!

    The NBA twitter handle caught Mr. & Mrs. Carter courtside tonight at the Knicks/Nets game. Only 1 of 3 appearances we've seen of Beyonce post Baby Blue Ivy being born!

    Jay & Bey are staples at NBA games-they have been since they starting dating. Wonder who's home with Baby Blue :) & wonder if Jay knows about this Rihanna & Chris Brown takeover tonight.....

    Uh Oh! @ChrisBrown & @Rihanna Collaborations are Here! Turn Up the Music Rmx & Birthday Cake Rmx!

    Tried to use the youtube videos instead.. hopefully they work best for everybody!
     Chris Brown-Turn Up the Music ft. Rihanna

    Rihanna- Birthday Cake ft. Chris Brown- Explicit

    We knew they were coming! Though the WORLD seemed to have every reason to try to stop these two from making music together, it looks as though Chris & Rihanna took things into their own hands and did it anyway- times 2.

    In what seemed to be a well planned out twitter release between the two of them they both sent each other links to their remixed versions of one another's records. Then each of them RT'd the link. A unified front  to me.

    Chris took to his twitter account just before releasing the links to these much anticipated collaborations with these words-

    In other words.. this reunion on records is in hopes of bringing people together more than anything?? I respect that. It's time we learn to forgive people and move forward.

    Looks like Mama Breezy is in support too. She's been thought to have done some sub tweeting to Rihanna herself in the past couple of months. She RT'd both links out on her twitter page tonight too.

    I think this is just Rihanna's way of letting the world know that she has forgiven Chris... doesn't mean she's back with him necessarily. Plus I'm sure they had a ball working together. What do you guys think!?

    Whitney Houston Laid to Rest + Full Homegoing Celebration Program (Obituary)

    If you're anything like me, you still can't believe that Whitney Houston has passed away. It has truly been so hard for my to accept, and the rare moments of acceptance that I do have are filled with crying spells. Yes, it's that real to me. Since her death I was wondering and hoping how the family would go about giving me hero a homegoing service. I wondered in what way would they honor her life?

    That question was answered and with the best response I could've imagined on Saturday 2/18 when Whitney's mom Cissy Houston and family gave her the best homegoing celebration in the church she grew up in. It was incredible for many reasons. Friends and family from throughout Whitney's incredible life and career were there all to share their love and memories.

    Guests on program included, Donnie McClurkin, Tyler Perry, Oprah, Ray J, Brandy, Kim Burrell, Alicia Keys, Kevin Costner, R. Kelly, Clive Davis, and many more. The words of encouragement given to the family, the testimonies toWhitney's undying love for Jesus, and the uplifting songs sang were all simply beautiful. As many put it, Cissy Houston brought the whole world to church to celebrate her daughter's life, and I can't help but believe Whitney wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

    Many touching moments occurred during the services. Highlights for many were Kim Burrell's personal rendition of Sam Cooke's Change Is Gonna Come, Tyler Perry's testimony to Whitney's faith, Kevin Costner's heartfelt story, and the Winans' family over all. It was an experience you can get in any black church around the country on any given Sunday, but with a special touch for Whitney. At the end of the service her casket was carried out with her incredible voice singing her iconic rendition of "I Will Always Love You" while her mother and daughter followed. Tears began to flow immediately from the family, friends present, and fans around the world.

    Sunday in a private burial Whitney Houston's body was laid to rest next to her father who passed in 2003. She is greatly missed, but her legacy lives on.

    Chris Brown Publicly Wishes Rihanna a Happy Birthday

    The young couple in 2008

    Following a few really hard days in the public eye (make that years), Chris Brown and Rihanna seem destined to show the world that they have moved on from their situation. Even after apologizing numerous times, handling his legal woes impeccably (according to the judge), and producing amazing albums and performances, Chris is still at the very bottom of the totem pole on many lists. The one person who has seemed to have forgiven him and moved on, is the one person hurt the most out of the incident, his ex Rihanna.

    The two have been rumored to have rekindled their relationship many times since parting 3 years ago, but never has it been so obvious that if anything, they are friends. It all started last year when the restraining order against him was lifted with Rihanna's blessing. The reports spread that they were carrying on a low key relationship again. Then, one day it became obvious that they were following each other on twitter, then more rumors that they were sexually involved again.

    Most recently an ongoing cycle of subliminal tweets with the hashtag #1Love from Rihanna has had the world starting to believe these two actually are headed back towards a relationship. Just last week the rumor mill exploded with reports that Chris Brown was at Rihanna's  private 24th birthday party, and that he is featured on the remix of her song, Birthday Cake.This sent the haters of the world into a full frenzy. People have yet to move on and forgive Chris Brown for his huge mistake.

    I went on a long twitter rant about this the other day, so I won't reiterate again, but- hoping someone gets help, and shedding a positive light on the fight against domestic violence does not equate to bashing, demeaning, and outright disrespecting Chris Brown.

    If you don't wish them together and think he's an abuser then say that and pray they both get help, but some of the hateful things written to and about him are just heartbreaking even for me. There is a better way to state your opinion on such a real issue, that may actually help someone. Clearly the way many people are stating their opinions right now- is causing more hurt than it is helping anyone.

    With that said, Rihanna & Chris don't seemed to be moved from their decision to publicly show that they actually have moved on and still care for one another. Following their responses on twitter to several comments and blogs regarding their situation comes a moment many have been waiting to see play out. They've been following each other on twitter for a while, which is in itself some sense of acknowledgement. Chris Brown has even favorited her tweet before, but never have they spoken directly to one another via twitter.

    Well, today is Rihanna's 24th birthday and everybody was wondering if Chris would acknowledge that on soon as the clock struck 12 he joined the ranks of many fans , family members, and friends including Producer the Dream who is in London recording with Rihanna right now- to wish her a happy birthday.

    Chris tweeted HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN (Rihanna's first name- her moniker is her middle name), and Rihanna immediately replied with a simple thank you. For the first time the two have a definite public interaction with each other, and of course it would be by twitter. We wish Rihanna a happy birthday as well! It's Pisces season!!!!

    New Video: @Wale ft. @BigSean- Slight Work (Directed by @ChrisBrown)

    Wale released his brand new video for, Slight Work which features Big Sean! Surprisingly it is directed by Chris Brown! This guy is everywhere right now (Chris). He's putting in work in many ways and thats commendable. Slight Work is just one of many hot records of Wale's critically acclaimed album Ambition.

    Cissy & Bobbi Kristina Arrive At Whitney's Wake

    Whitney's family held a private wake today in Newark. Whitney's mother Cissy (below) was spotted arriving with her daughter Bobbi Kristina (above). It's becoming more and more real that Whitney is gone. Praying for the family.  Also in attendance was Clive Davis and Whitney's cousin Dionne Warwick among others.

    Whitney's Homegoing will now be broadcasted online and television for her fans to view. Reported to have been invited to the small ceremonies are: Oprah, Jay Z & Beyonce, Ray J, Brandy, Kevin Costner, Aretha Franklin, Mel Gibson (said to not be attending), and a few others.


    NEW VIDEO: Chris Brow- Turn Up The Music

    Fresh off of his Grammy winning weekend, Chris Brown is still working hard. With rumors still heavily circulating that he and Rihanna rekindled their relationship, and photos of him simultaneously in the airport with now girlfriend Karrueche, Chris is still managing to focus on his career for the most part. A few weeks ago he dropped his first single- Turn Up the Music- from his much anticipated follow up album to his last release, F.A.M.E. dually entitled, FORTUNE.

    Early Friday morning he premiered the video via his twitter page. Check it out below!

    Photo on her FB page from Will's bday in September

    Reports have been circulating for months now that one of Hollywoods most adored couples Will & Jada Smith are splitting/have split. Well,  Jada released this song for Will no her facebook page  & honey..this is not a song you record for a man you're divorcing. Here is the note she attached with the song, entitled Burn..

    We should remember...
    Our lives are worth living fully.

    Our risks are worthy.

    Our traumas are worthy as well.

    The very paths we are told not to
    Tread are the paths that hold the
    keys to our deepest understanding of
    love for our lives and ourselves.

    Self love is the gateway to truly loving

    We were born to be loved and to love...

    I love you.
    Happy Valentine's Day.
    This is for you.


    Praying for these two to make it! I love them!

    @TYRESE & @OfficialChilli Stop By 106th & Park to Premiere New Vid Nothing On You

    Add caption

    Few days ago we featured some pretty steamy photos from the set of Tyrese's new video for my favorite song on his latest album, Nothing on You! TLC's Chilli played his leading lady in the video and the twitter flirting between these two was priceless the whole time. Well the video is finally here! Tyrese & Chilli stopped by BET's 106th and Park as surprised guests to debut the video for millions of fans! The chemistry between these to is just too real.

    Tyrese explained via twitter that Chilli is one of his dream women, so he was very excited to work with her.Yall how about Chilli is about to be 41............................................................................................. aging SO gracefully

    The video directed by Matt Alonzo chronicles the love life of a man showing his woman that even though many women want him, he only wants her. This has been my jam since before the album came out, so I of course am excited it's a single. 

    Wayne Popped the Question to Girlfriend Dhea?! [photos]

    Wayne has been spotted with this woman on his arm for a bit now. The media went into a frenzy trying to figure out just who she is. From the beginning people assumed it was something serious as Wayne was all cuddled up with her beachside, courtside, and even brought her to his daughter Reginaes 13 yr. Birthday Ball. So who is she?

    Well, we don't know much about her except she's Italian, Wayne's girlfriend and potentially his fiance'?!??
     Last night he tweeted something that was replied to by Birdman and of course twitter ran with it. The tweet:

    Considering how smitten Wayne appears to be over her via his twitter acct- the obvious assumption was, Wayne has finally popped the question!!

    I've watched Wayne tweet the sweetest things about needing his lady, or going to spend time with her. Some times it's even just her name that he tweets, or something cute like this one below:

    So many of you jumped ship and thought.. WOW Wayne FINALLY proposed & to her????! Hahhaaa... guys.. even I know Wayne better enough to not take anything he says at face value! He's a rapper & a genius one at that. He uses words, flips them, plays with your head with them, because that's what he  gets paid to do. I knew the whole time exactly what Wayne was doing!

    The answer is NO! Wayne did not ask Dhea (though he may be in love with her) to marry him.. just to be his Valentine..

    Maybe this will calm all of the raving fans on twitter going off about him marrying some "random" girl and not Nivea, Lauren, or Sarah. All of which have a kid by him and were at some point in a relationship with him. I even saw one tweet asking why he'd married her and not Reginae's mom Toya (um. he did. they divorced. Toya's happily married.) lol. Gotta love fans.

    Anywho.. s/o to Wayne for being silly as heck and all of yall for falling for it. Kudos to he and Dhea anyway..they're riding pretty hard.. who knows.. maybe someday he will, but not today!!!!
