Kanye West and Jay Z are working on their newest video set for their collabo joint titled "OTIS". The video will be directed by Spike Jonze out in Los Angeles, California.
Unfortunately, no photos of Jay Z on set have been released, but I'm liking the way Kanye is showing off his swag in the above photo!! Handsome indeed! Anywho, I can't wait for the finished product. I love the song, but I could do without all the screaming at the end of it. Is anyone else bothered by all that screaming at the end of the song or is it just me? *Kanye shrug*
So until that finished product is here, check out another photo from the "OTIS" video set as well as the song below:
Brandy has been a star for a very long time, however, as of lately, or should I say the last couple of years, all we've ever heard about were Brandy's problems. The focus was never on that beautiful voice she once shared with the world when she wanted to "Be Down". The media targeted Brandy's every mistake and broadcasted it to the world as if that was all she was known for.
Well now, Brandy speaks out and takes you on a journey through her life from the beginning. From being a singer/actress, to being a Mommy, Brandy let's it all out and tells you her story in her documentary titled "On My Own".

While I was over at the Ace Hood listening party, Pow-TV.net headed over to the Flud Watch party where Rah Digga was spotted hanging out with Maybach Music's own, Gun Play, Torch and Steph Lova formerly of Power 105.1.

Last night was the listening session for Ace Hood's newest album "Blood, Sweat & Tears" which is set to drop on August 9th. Many celebrities came out to show their love and support to Ace Hood such as Fabolous, DJ Khaled, DJ Bobby Trends, Steph Lova and many more.
The event took place at Jungle City Studios in the heart of New York City where media was cramped into a tiny area where teriyaki chicken wings were served with an open bar. Ace Hood and DJ Khaled came into the media area and gave everyone their shouts and took pictures. The only downside to this event is that there was a separation between the media room and the studio area where Ace Hood was going to showcase his album.
Dividing the spaces was this thick, bulletproof layer of glass which gave media a bad taste in their mouth. Many folks want to feel like they could make a connection with the artist during events like this, but unfortunately, the set up didn't give off that vibe.
Eventually, it became very hot and steamy in the cramped media room and many people left because of it. But not one to disappoint, yours truly did capture some great footage from the event and you can check that out when you click on the "Read More" button below:

The video tells a story of life on the road where Raphael Saadiq is welcomed home by his lady after returning home from several performances. Raphael's woman is excited to see him, welcoming him home with open arms. While Raphael may have to leave again soon, it's the quality time that he spends with his family that is most important.
But enough about the video and check it out for yourselves below:

Last night's episode of "Basketball Wives" was crazy!! For those of you who missed out on the show, you missed out on a lot! To make a long story short, Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams made up.....which I'm soo happy about because I really like these two as BFF's. And I'm also really happy that Tami Roman is able to get along with Evelyn Lozada and go out and have a good time. This all shows maturity in the women. Being able to put things to the side and get past them is hard for anyone to do in this day and age.
However, the real drama came into play when Suzie goes out to have a few drinks with Meeka Claxton. During their time at the bar, Meeka confides to Suzie her feelings regarding Tami Roman. Just as Tami was about to let bygones be bygones, Suzie opens up her big ass mouth and tells Tami what Meeka said. In my personal opinion, Suzie should've kept her mouth shut! There was no reasoning behind telling Tami that information since everyone knew it would spark up some more problems. And sure enough, that's exactly what happened!!

I've just gotten word that Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home. Amy Winehouse was just 27 years old at the time of her death and at the present time, the cause of death is unknown.
We all have a slight clue as to what the cause of her death may be. I mean, let's be serious here, she was a drug addict with severe depression, an eating disorder and a penchant for making trouble with the police, her marriage and personal life. Are we really surprised that she ended up dead? I know I'm not!
If you think I'm being too hard on the woman, I'm not! I'm actually showing respect by posting a picture of her when she was in her prime and not a picture of her looking like "Who shot John?" like the other sites are doing.
As always, you can leave your thoughts in the comments section. I'm listening!
During a visit to "The View", Latoya Jackson was asked about her brother, Michael Jackson's murder. Latoya goes into detail about her possibly knowing who the suspect is. Stating that there was someone in the house when Michael Jackson died.
Sherry Sheppard then stops Latoya and asks her "Well, if you know who it is, why can't you say a name?" And just as Latoya was about to say something, Whoopi Goldberg shakes her head and says Uh-Uh. At that point, Latoya starts laughing and then the clip ends.
Many might say this has to do with the Illuminati, but I'm thinking maybe Whoopi was just warning Latoya not to say something she might regret in the future. But I'll let you guys be the judge of that when you check out the clip below:

LisaRaye is one of the hottest models/actresses out. I have followed her career from the moment I saw her in a Tupac video and then featured as a stripper named Diamond in Ice Cube's movie "Players Club". Not only was LisaRaye beautiful and appealing to the eye, but she seemed to have this around the way girl type of attitude that made her seem personable. So since I'm a true fan of LisaRaye's work, I pretty much post on anything she does.

Rapper Lil Mama sure does know how to keep herself relevant. Even if it's always with bad publicity, you can be sure to always find her up in some type of mess. Whether it's jumping onstage with Jay Z and Alicia Keys for no apparent reason or getting booed off of stages or even claiming that Nicki Minaj imitates her, you can be sure that Lil Mama will always be a part of some nonsense.
With that said, Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" decided to go in on Lil Mama and all of her ridiculous actions. Charlamagne in particular, went all the way in on her and ended up making her cry.

Word on the internet curb is that Royce Reed and Shawty Lo are an item now!! This news or shall I say rumor, comes as a surprise because Shawty Lo doesn't even look like Royce Reed's type. Well, then again, what is Royce Reed's type? She went from that corny dude (I think his name was Dwayne) to the new jawn in this season's episode of "Basketball Wives" (I forgot his name).
Anywho, Royce and Shawty Lo were spotted at the Velvet Room nightclub and were rumored to have been getting really affectionate all night long.

After watching last night's episode of "Basketball Wives", I think it's safe to say that Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams are giving each other a break from their friendship for now and doing their own thing. At least that's my opinion from what I saw last night. I could be wrong.
However, while I was on Twitter, I noticed Mashonda tweeted some pictures of herself and some friends on vacation in Italy. Lo and behold, there was Jennifer Williams right in the pictures with the rest of the gang!! You can check out some of those pictures below:
