The first review of Beyonce's album bidet B-Day has arrived.... it's not pretty folks, but I understand that most people who judge these albums don't even listen to hip hop/r&b.. get Mother Love up in that bitch and it woulda been a whole different review!
Imagine if Whitney Houston never had Clive Davis steering her career for those first few important image-defining albums. The result would have been Beyonce Knowles ’ new "B'Day," the follow up to her huge-selling debut album "Dangerously in Love."
Post-Destiny’s Child Beyonce serves up a mixed bag of Tina Turner-inspired videos, shrill singing and invariably tuneless songs
.The closest they come to a defining single is "Déjà Vu," The song is catchy if you hear it enough times — like a sidewalk drill — but it lacks a consistent melody
I am told that focus groups (yes — can you imagine?) don’t care for it.
A London radio DJ told me last night that "Déjà Vu" and Justin Timberlake’s new "Sexyback" recently tied for least-liked records in his station’s polling
Among the tracks that sound less obvious — and more tired — are the next planned single, "Ring the Alarm." It features an extremely annoying siren and is accompanied by a bizarre video depicting a wildly angry and unappealing Beyonce telling off someone (maybe Jay-Z?) for cheating as if she were an enraged guest on Maury Povich.

A while back I posted a story about Tyra Banks speaking out about photoshopping. The model/talk show host said that she will not let any photographer digitally enhance any of her photos, she will rely solely on make-up and hair extensions to make her gorgeous.
p.s. she's leaving a vet clinic, if you were gonna walk anywhere barefoot why would you walk around a place where dogs piss and shit?
Akeem Eddie Murphy and Mel B Plan Get Together... Mel B and Eddie Murphy are planning a trip to Disneyland so that their children can meet. The only way they could possibly make this any more terrifyingly awkward is by leaving the kids in the Haunted Mansion for the entire day, then forcing them to watch Pluto Nash while mommy practices her new single.

Luda and Rev Run on TRL I like Luda's new cut, I'd always be skeptical to cut all of my hair off if I was a guy cuz lawd knows what kind of dome you got up underneath there. But it's looks normal shape, so Kudos to Luda for having a normal shaped head!
Miss Run lookin a lil pregnant! and Rev's daughters are gor-geo-us!
A while back I posted that Christina Aguilera had a song on her album called "F.U.S.S" (Fuck You Scott Storch)..Well I got ahold of the song [courtesy of hipandpop]. Click here to listen to F.U.S.S
Also.. Scott Storch did an interview in response to the lyrics:
"I thought I knew who you were, I see now you were a lesson to learn.” And then: “This song is for you to remind you / that I moved on … looks like I didn’t need you.”
“ S.Storch replied: “It’s pretty pathetic that she would do a song like this.” “I worked on half of her last CD and sold her millions of copies. Obviously, she cares more than I do that I didn’t do this album. “But I can’t blame her, with an album full of fillers, oversinging and lame Vegas-like cabaret music.” Storch adds: “You should fire your management for letting me slip through your fingers.” Source
