I’m on vacation til next week, which is why posts have been lacking.
I’ll be back next into the swing of things on in a few days.
Janelle Monáe is such a delight. She and Santigold are my favorite (Black) females performers. I find both of these ladies far more interesting than Beyonce and Rihanna will ever be.
Janelle Monáe’s upcoming sophomore album, ‘The Electric Lady,’ will include guest appearances by the legend otherwise known as Prince and the crooner giving bitches brain damage, Miguel.
In a new Billboard cover story, the lovely Monáe says she aims to “tell universal stories in unforgettable ways” on the album, due in September. She describes her relationship with Prince as….
“We are great friends, and (Prince) is a mentor to us, to me. It’s a beautiful thing to have a friend — someone who cares about your career, and wants to see you go far and to push boundaries and shake up the world — give whatever they possibly can to the cause.”
“I had a chance to produce an icon,” says Monáe, who is keeping the name of their song under wraps. “It’s not every day that he collaborates. I’m honored and humbled that he trusted me. He is forever my friend, and I am forever indebted. I can’t say too much else about it.”
Meanwhile, Miguel guests on the track ‘Primetime,’ which interpolates the Pixies’ famous “Where Is My Mind?” “ooh” section atop a spare funk beat.
Nine Inch Nails have debuted their dope new single ‘Came Back Haunted’ – track is from their new album ‘Hesitation Marks’, which hits stores September 3.
Have a listen to the track via the player below.
Rihanna was given a private look into the life of the fashion icon, and she documented her tour of Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment through photos she shared on Instagram.
“Got the keys to #CoCoChanels apartment!!! Yesterday=Most Legendary day in Paris!!!!” she wrote along with a photo of keys hanging from the front door.

Rapper Gucci Mane says he and rocker Marilyn Manson have teamed up to record a song called ‘Fancy Bitch’.
The two met when Marilyn attended the Los Angeles premiere of the film ‘Spring Breakers,’ which Gucci has a role in, and from there they went to the studio and worked together till 6AM.
They collaborated on the track this past March with Gucci telling thefader.com:
“That’s my boy man. We got the dopest record in the world, me and Marilyn. Me and him got one of the craziest records ever made. We made it whatever day Spring Breakers came out in Cali. He came to the sneak premiere, and after we did the red carpet and watched the movie, me and him went to the studio and made us a record.
That’s the day that we met and began being friends. He’s cool as hell, I fuck with him hard. He ain’t the averagest white boy. He got swag. Me and him together, he don’t get on my nerves. I can stomach being around him. He cool.”
Well, I’m expecting ‘Fancy Bitch’ to sound quite…. interesting, don’t you think?
Thanks to Olivia Pope, I can’t get enough of Kerry Washington! I love watching her work! And those lips, Momma Mia, those lips!! I was to get lost in her kiss!!
Kerry and my man Don Cheadle (he’s so delicious) sat down with Variety to discuss issues of race in Hollywood, as well as gender and the role of activism.
