random pics: gabrielle union at “meet dave” premiere

Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union hit up the “Meet Dave” premiere in Westwood, California on Tuesday night. The actress co-stars in the movie with Eddie Murphy (who was a no show) and it will be released on Friday.

After viewing a few of the commercials of “Meet Dave” I’m convinced it’s going to suck, not to mention Eddie didn’t even show up to the premiere and he is the star! Didn’t he do that for Pluto Nash too? Anywho, Gab looks nice.

♫ THE NEW MUSIC REVIEW ♫

by admin ·

♫ Keri Hilson feat. Timbaland – Return the Favor (snippet) – REMOVED
Check out this snippet of Keri Hilson’s “Return the Favor,” which was originally supposed to be the first single from her debut album, In A Perfect World…, which is set to hit stores on September 23rd. I think that they didn’t go with this song because it’s similarities to “The Way I Are,” but I love the song all the same. I’m really excited about Keri’s album. She just shot the video for her first single, “Energy” in LA. It was directed by Melina.

♫ Joe – Beautiful (full) – listen
Here’s some new music from one of my favorite R&B crooners in the game, Joe. “Beautiful” is apparently some new material from his upcoming project. I actually was a huge fan of his last album, Ain’t Nothin’ Like Me, which didn’t really perform well from what I remember. “Beautiful” is a cool track though. I think Joe just needs more of a push from his label in order to get his project out there.

R&B star, Usher along with his son, Usher Raymond V cover the August 2008 issue of Essence magazine. This is the first official look at the Usher V.

In the interview (conducted by actor/author Hill Harper) Usher speaks yet again on fatherhood, his marriage and rumors. Here is a snippet:

HILL HARPER: In the last year, you got married and you’ve had a baby. Which has changed you more?

USHER: They’re both linked—I can’t have one without the other. But the one thing that changed me the most is having a wife. Our child is an extension of that union.

HARPER: Why?

USHER: Because now I represent what he is to become. He’s gonna admire me, he’s gonna look up to me. He’s gonna say, “I wanna be”—or he should say— “I wanna be like my father. I wanna be a man of valor. I wanna possess what my father has as a man.” To get married was a choice. To have a child is a responsibility.

♫ HOT OR NOT: HOLLYWEERD – “MONKEY”

by admin ·

♫ Hollyweerd – Monkey

Let me reintroduce you to Hollyweerd. Back in January, we featured them in our artist spotlight section, and they got a swelling response from readers, other blogs and even some label executives.

So, they felt is was time to give the public another taste of what they’ve been grinding on. “Monkey” is that just that – a wild, loose animal, all over the place, a lot different than their previous track, “Have You Ever Made Love To A Weerdo?” But the group is still going strong and working on their debut, banging out cuts with a few different producers.

Note: There is a poll within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

If you’re digging the sounds of Hollyweerd, make sure you show them some CL love on their MySpace!
