Ne-Yo has been dropped off of R Kelly’s Tour.

Posted by Media Outrage on November 20, 2007


Via SandraRoseNews:

According to a press release, Shaffer Smith aka Ne-Yo was informed that he was being dropped from the rest of the R Kelly tour after delivering two sensational performances. Entertainment reporters, music critics, bloggers, fans, and concert goers all agreed that Ne-Yo’s performances brought the heat; but maybe it brought too much heat.

“He’s written hit songs for Beyonce “Irreplaceable” and Rihanna “Unfaithful” (spending a combined 19 weeks at #1 on the Hot 100), said Tango, Ne-Yo’s business partner and manager. He’s written songs slated to be on Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Lionel Richie, and Enrique Iglesias‘ new albums. In a recent article in Ebony Magazine, the king of pop, Michael Jackson, referred to him as one of the artists that impresses him most. The fans were really feeling his performances. He’s good; maybe he’s too good – that’s the problem.”

R.Kelly’s camp sited the lack of a signed contract as the reason Ne-Yo was dropped. “I don’t understand their actions because I was rehearsing, doing media, promoting the tour, and performing, said Ne-Yo. In my opinion, I was doing everything possible to make the tour a success. I love being on stage in front of fans because of the immediate feedback you get. You know right away if they are feeling you; and they were really feeling our show.”

Ne-Yo expressed genuine concern regarding not having the opportunity to complete the tour. He wanted all of his fans and supporters to be able to see him live. “To my fans and ticket holders – I apologize if you are disappointed.”

We guess the hate has begun. R. Kelly has a history of this kind of jealousy you remember the best of both worlds tour with Jay when he was getting more love than R… and R was at McDonalds chilling when he was supposed to be performing lol. Egotistical.

Solange is making two major moves…

Via Eurweb:

“Bey’s younger sister is hoping to finally carve out a slice of superstardom for herself with two big announcements: a move from her native Houston to Los Angeles and a new recording contract with Geffen records.

Solange, 21, had been signed to Columbia Records, also the label of her older sister. There, she released her 2003 debut album, “Solo Star.”

Under a new joint venture relationship between Geffen and her father’s Mathew Knowles’ Music World Music shingle, the single mother of 3-year-old Daniel Julez Smith will soon release a follow-up project.

At Geffen, the artist joins label mates Mary J. Blige, Keyshia Cole and Macy Gray.

Could this spell platinum success for the aspiring star who lives in the giant shadow of her older sister Beyonce? Slow down…we’ll cross that imaginary bridge when we come to it.

Barack Obama to Hillary Clinton: Let’s get it on!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 20, 2007


Barack Obama charged Monday that Hillary Clinton acts as if she were a cabinet secretary instead of First Lady when she attacks his resume.

My understanding is she wasn’t treasury secretary in the Clinton administration. I don’t know exactly what experience she’s claiming,” Obama told reporters in Iowa, where a new poll shows he’s now leading among Democratic contenders.

Rather than just assert experience, if she has specific differences with me in regard to economic policy, then let’s have that debate,”

In other words let’s get it popping Hillary.

Did R. Kelly ask his publicist to commit perjury???

Posted by Media Outrage on November 20, 2007

R Kelly

Sources are whispering that the reason that R. Kelly’s longtime publicist Regina Daniels abruptly resigned was because he might have asked her and her husband George Daniels to lie for him on the stand during a recent hearing for his child pornography case.

Here is her statement after her formal resignation:

Friends and Colleagues – After careful consideration and counsel, I have decided to formally announce my resignation as publicist for R&B artist R. Kelly.

My resignation was effective as of August 28, 2007. Throughout the course of my 25 years as a publicist, I have prided myself on loyalty, respect and professionalism. It saddens me that I was not always shown those same courtesies during my 14 year tenure as Mr. Kelly’s publicist.

Though I have a great appreciation for Mr. Kelly as an artist, there are some lines that should never be crossed professionally or personally. Mr. Kelly crossed a line that forever altered the scope of our relationship. For this reason I made the decision to resign.

My husband, music retailer George Daniels, has also disassociated himself from Mr. Kelly.”

– Regina Daniel

Jay Z dropping another album December 4th.

Posted by Media Outrage on November 20, 2007


He’s not done yet. Jay is releasing an a cappella version of “American Gangster” on Dec. 4th which is his b day. I personally never understood why people would even waste their money buying something that they already own. You know? Like when people re release the same album with maybe one extra song on it. Why would I buy that? I already have it lol. Make me some new ish lol. So the a cappella thing doesn’t work for me. Plus I like music behind my stuff. If you are going to sell me another album it just better be all new cuts that I haven’t heard yet. But that’s cool Jay do your thing.
