Ashanti is still releasing singles from 'Braveheart'...

It sucks how much Ashant's career has fizzled out. If Beyoncé tweeted about Blue Ivy's inherited love of Popeyes chicken, within seconds, that not so important message would have gone viral worldwide with the quickness. But those types of hits and mass hysteria is something Ashanti won't ever get to enjoy again. I commend her for not giving up though and continuing to push forward. To be honest, I am actually surprised she is still dropping singles following the release of her album last March.

Rihanna & Kanye West perform at DirecTV’s Super Bowl Party...

This surrogacy sibling relationship between Rihanna and Kanye West is kind of cute I gotta admit. I can actually see them touring together at some point too. The pair, currently enjoying success with their Paul McCartney assisted new single ‘FourFiveSeconds’ served as stage headliners at DirecTV’s Super Bowl concert in Glendale, Arizona last night. They performed their multiple duets, and Rihanna sang most of her solo hits as well. Her dance hit 'We Found Love,' also received a rock make-over.

Mariah Carey's backing track has a mind of its own in Jamaica...

On Friday, Mariah Carey performed at the 2015 Jazz And Blues Festival in Jamaica. This was her first ever Caribbean performance, so you'd think she'd want to set a good impression on her West Indian fans. Unfortunately, that was not the case for those that forked out a lot of money for highly priced tickets. Mariah was also paid largely in advance for the gig itself, which received mixed reactions. She relied heavily on playback for the majority of the performance and even struggled to mime in sync with the pre-recorded track.

Mariah Carey "denied" $3 million advance on nearly finalised album deal with Sony...

Billboard alleges that Mariah Carey's return to Sony Music through LA Reid's Epic Records is now a nearly finalised multi-album deal. However, there was no bidding war like there had been when she signed a four-album, $80 million deal with EMI’s Virgin Records back in 2000. Different times and a testament to her less than prominent pulling power, because the source states that “Sony’s was the only deal on the table, and it came in far lower than she expected.”

Christina Aguilera confirms Pharrell Williams for new album...

A collaboration between Christina Aguilera and Pharrell Williams is bound to yield some interesting results. I'm totally here for it. We knew about it already, but now that she's officially confirmed it, we can be amped about it in the coming months. Aggy is bringing it thick and fierce this year. Her interview with Extra this week sees the singer discussing her upcoming new album, new daughter Summer Rain and returning as a coach on NBC's The Voice. Check out her newest interview below.

More from Rihanna's "FKA Twigs inspired" photoshoot in i-D magazine (as if)...

Apparently, Rihanna has come under fire by accusations that she copied FKA Twigs' look and style for her ‘i-D’ magazine shoot. The accusations are stupid. This look is a very general ethnic hairstyle. This is a popular black girl hairstyle which was rife in the 90s. My mother even has throwback photos of my sisters and I when she use to do our hair in similar styles, and even Rihanna similarly rocked it in her childhood back in the 90s. Anyway, enjoy these new pics from the shoot. They're amazing! 

Ciara performs acoustic version of new single ‘I Bet’...

It's about time Ciara did some form of promo for her new single 'I Bet.' I enjoyed watching her perform it in acoustic. The stripped down nature allowed for her voice to take center stage. As we all know, she is not a vocalist, but she did pretty well expressing her hurt through the break-up ballad. She was accompanied by three background singers, a pianist, and a guitarist for the performance, which is in support of her upcoming new album 'Jackie.' Check out the previously teased performance in full below.

Britney Spears cannot hide her disgust during fan meet & greet...

This photo right here had me cracking the f*** up! I am sure Britney Spears appreciates her fans, but the look on her face here is priceless! The pic was taken last night backstage at her 'Piece Of Me' show. She looks how I look while watching an episode of 'I'm A Celebrity' and the celebrity is told that they have to eat kangaroo nuts and live earth worms. This is EXACTLY what my face looks like. I know the fan is no looker, but perhaps he just didn't smell very nice or he farted himself up a storm. Either way, Britney clearly wasn't here for the pic!

Britney Spears uses new stage outfit to declare love for new boyfriend...

Someone is in lurve and wants the whole world to know it. Last night at her 'Piece of Me' show in Vegas, Britney Spears debuted a brand new outfit during her 'Me Against The Music / Gimme More / Break The Ice / Piece of Me' performances. Britney rocked a sleeveless denim jacket that had the words 'I love Charlie.' I'd say someone has it bad, so let's hope this relationship is the real deal for her. If anyone deserves to be happy after everything she's been through, it's most definitely her.

Usher on hit single 'I don't Mind': "That's what people choose to listen to now"...

During a visit to The Ellen Degeneres Show this week, Grammy nominee Usher and Ellen discussed the provocative lyrics in his hit song 'I Don’t Mind.' Unfortunately, music of substance is no longer something people will support. When an R&B veteran chooses to sing about love, heartbreak and social issues, they get shunned. Their music gets shunned. And they get left out in the cold. Let him sing about his love of strippers and twerking and people will jump all over it and make it a hit.

Rihanna covers i-D magazine...

Here is the extremely photogenic Rihanna serving early 90s Janet Jackson on the cover of this months ‘i-D’ magazine. "She really is one of the most creative, talented and inspiring women I've ever had the pleasure of working with," says i-D's Fashion Director Alastair McKimm, who teamed up with Rihanna and Paolo Roversi for i-D's cover shoot in Paris. "The energy and enthusiasm she brings is intense. She's the ultimate icon of our time." A very understated, but beautiful cover for the magazine's 'Music Issue.' Gwaaaan Robyn!

Adrienne Bailon breaks down when asked about her singing career...

Being in 3LW and then The Cheetah Girls gave The Real host Adrienne Bailon all the experience needed to go solo. It was fun back then, but following her short-lived deal with Def Jam, her struggles to go solo, was met with certain obstacles. Everything from being afraid to step out on her own, to lacking the confidence needed. These are some of the things she failed to overcome. I have to be honest, and say she had a chipmunk-ish tone to her voice and at times it wasn't always very pleasant.
