Brandy is BACK on Broadway Until August 31st!

Black community, Celebrity News, Hip Hop/R&B, Music

Brandy Norwood is back on Broadway performing once again in the Chicago musical as Roxie Hart and so far her return has been epic!

Apparently, the singer was almost in tears during curtain call and thanked the audience while bowing beside her co-stars.

Brandy initially took on the task of Roxie Hart in 2015 and after a tough and busy summer reprised the sassy role from August 17th-August 31st. I’m hoping to try to catch her performance soon!

Remy Ma Brings Out Lil Kim, Young M.A., Cardi B & MORE During Summer Jam 2017

Black community, Female Rappers, Hip Hop/R&B, Music, Social Media Sensations

THIS is Female EMPOWERMENT! We have been brainwashed to believe that only ONE female rapper can run hip-hop at a time and I am so GLAD to see Remy Ma do something that other femcees should have done a long time ago.  The Bronx native performed during Hot 97’s Summer Jam and brought out rappers Lil Kim, Young M.A., and Cardi B. She also showed love onstage to mogul Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Monie Love and Lady of Rage.

What I would GIVE to have a compilation cd of hip-hop’s female MCs! And a TOUR! OMG!!! 

It also seems as if Remy Ma responded to a leaked diss track from Nicki Minaj (“Real Lies“) during Summer Jam ’17 by shouting “F*CK NICKI MINAJ before performing her diss record “SHether”.

I’m not sure if ya’ll are aware of Nicki Minaj’s antics behind the scenes but she attempts to use her influence and money to shut down other female artists and I think that it is downright disgusting and insecure of her to do so. She has tried to prevent Remy Ma from working, Cardi B, and singer K.Michelle. (Check our Instagram for more information about these stories-and Follow us if you don’t already!)

Lil Mo Fired From D.C Radio Show 93.9 WKYS

Celebrity News, Music

Sooooo, not too long after defending Chrisette Michelle and talking trash about Spike Lee’s comments toward Chrisette Michelle (inauguration debate)…Lil Mo was fired from D.C.’s radio show “The Fam in the Morning.” (93.9)

It seems as if she didn’t know that she was being fired from the show and although many believe that is was BECAUSE she defended Chrisette Michelle’s performance for Trump’s inauguration, it was just cited as “unprofessional-ism.”

Mo had been working for the radio station for one year, but the singer has not let this bring her down. She took to her Instagram account to say this…

Child, you know you got to be careful with which side you’re standing on publicly. Friend or not, you’ve GOT to secure that bag! Lil Mo– you should get back to singing anyway, but please be very careful about who you’re linking up with to do that. Your friend is not a fan favorite right now and it’s best to go with what the people want in your line of business. (I’m just saying) You should also hit up Mona Scott and audition for Love and Hip Hop. OK!

Watch a clip below of Lil’ Mo defending Chrisette Michelle:

QOTR Female Battle League: Don Ladyii vs. MBD

Female Rappers, Hip Hop/R&B, Music

Ya’ll know that I love the Queen of the Ring Battle League! Not too many are involved in the true heart of hip hop, but I have always appreciated the rawness of battle rap. This league showcases young ladies that are doing their thing in the battle rap world and being in an industry that only highlights ONE female EMCEE at a time, I always feel like it’s my DUTY to show them off.

With that being said….GIVE IT UP FOR THE LADIESSSS!!! (Babs voice) -Much love QOTR

During the night there were performances by Dru Hill (Sisqo), Carl Thomas, Brandy, Erykah Badu & DRAM, Indie Arie, Eric Benet, etc. There was even a small tribute paid to Brandy by music legend Babyface, Jhene Aiko, Jazmine Sullivan and others! (Ya’ll know I love some Bran so I was really happy for her!) And honey when Babyface said that her sound is UNMATCHED I was stoked! People try to downplay Brandy a lot but her vocals are astounding and her range is something that many in the industry look up to. She has copycats and ya’ll don’t even know it! Ok! Brandy was also a winner of the Lady Of Soul award.

Janet Jackson Pregnant? (49 & Pregnant)

Black community, Celebrity News, Music

Not too long ago Janet Jackson cancelled her world tour for the second time with the reason being that she and her husband were starting a family.

She posted a video to her Instagram account saying:

“I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” she told fans in a video released on Twitter. “Please, if you can try and understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”

A lot of people were angry and didn’t think that it was true, but it was just announced by sources close to the almost- 50- year old superstar that she is with child.(She turns 50 May 16) It was reported by Entertainment Tonight but has not yet been confirmed by the icon.

However, she has gifted us with a new video release to her song, ” Dammn Baby.”
