Ms. Kelly gets more "Independent"?!


Ok Guys Lots going oN today!

If you have been keeping up with the blog than you would have read a few weeks ago that Ms. Kelly has parted ways with long time manager Matthews Knowles. Knowles, the father of R&B legend Beyonce Knowles has been Kelly's manager for her entire career thus getting her to where she is today...whether or not you agree that she should be in the place that she is or not!![cuz' u know what they say lol]

But Ms. Kelly is on a role and in following this hot streak, the Grammy Award Winner has announced today that she has left her long time label Columbia Records. Columbia Records has also been her home from being a third of Destiny's Child through her solo career, and latest LP. Kelly told Billboard Magazine that she will still work with Columbia Records in collaboration with her band mates for future Destiny's Child endeavors.

Kelly also told Billboard, "Because Columbia Records has been my home base as an artist for more than a decade, the decision to move out on my own required a lot of soul-searching." She continued on, "As a solo artist, I felt the need to explore new directions, new challenges, and new freedoms outside my comfort zone and my friends and family at Columbia have been incredibly understanding about my evolution."

Columbia Records also released a statement, "Kelly Rowland is one of our finest contemporary artists and a musical force to be reckoned with," said Rob Stringer, CEO, Columbia/Epic Label Music Group. "It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Kelly and we will continue our working relationship with her under the Destiny's Child moniker. The decision for Kelly to seek other opportunities for her solo career was agreed upon mutually, and any reports to the contrary are false."

Previously there had been rumors that the R&B beauty was dropped, but Columbia Records clearly states...it was mutual!

There has been no reports of the "Dilemma" star going to a new record label yet...but best wishes to her from the staff at "Swagg-less Concerns"

Disney's Princess Tiana has Jungle Fever?!




Hey Guys!
So briefly here is the scoop. Disney has been working on it's well anticipated debut of its newest movie, The Frog Princess which will star it's first African American Princess, voice of Dreamgirl's Anika Noni Rose this fall. That of course is great...but news of her princes' lighter skin has caused a stir in the African American Community. Sadly enough there has been much outrage over the color of the princes' skin.

Reports have noted that the prince is not actually white but of Hispanic heritage. Either way, many still are not satisfied and doesn't understand why Disney's first Black Princess has to be the only princess to have a prince outside of her race besides her predecessor Pocahontas, who lived happily ever after with John Smith who was white(based on a true story).
What do you think guys?
Are some members of the African American Community being too judgmental?
Should the prince be African American?
Should President Barack Obama have a cartoon? lol [just thought i'd ask lol]

Comment Below your thoughts are appreciated!

Chris Brown Going to Jail?!


Damn Damn Damn.
Chris Brown has reportedly been charged with 2 Felonies in connection with his Pre- Grammy Attack on Rihanna. The R&B Crooner faces a maximum of four years and eight months in prison!

The star is allegedly going to be arraigned today at 3:30 pm in downtown LA.

Also!!
There has just been shocking evidence provided by the LAPD of what really happen in the car with the two teen sensations!

Courtesy of TMZ.COM
"FOX 11 in L.A. obtained LAPD detectives notes from a search warrant in the case. According to the notes, Rihanna read a three-page text message on Brown's phone from a woman. An argument ensued and Brown allegedly tried forcing Rihanna out of the car but couldn't because she was wearing her seat belt.

Brown then allegedly shoved Rihanna's head against the passenger window. When Rihanna turned to face him, Brown punched her, then continued punching her while driving, according to the detective's notes.

Blood spattered all over Rihanna's clothing and in the interior of the car. Her mouth was filled with blood.

Brown allegedly told Rihanna, "I'm going to beat the **** out of you when we get home. You wait and see."

Rihanna called her assistant and left a message saying, "I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there."

Brown then replied, "You just did the stupidest thing ever. I'm going to kill you."

According to the report, Brown continued to punch Rihanna, bit her on her ear, her fingers and put her in a headlock -- she almost lost consciousness."

So I told you I would be blogging new and old this week to make up for my time gone :(
And a few post earlier I also vowed not to discuss the Chris Brown and Rihanna story until now!...Why? you may ask..........because People Magazine has reported that the teen pop sensations are working thought their issues and have reconciled as they vacation at one of Diddy's Mansions in Miami.

Do you think Rihanna should return to the recently dubbed, " Ike Turner Jr?"
Does true love conquer all? Let me know what you think
