Britney Spears renews contract with RCA Records...

A new interview with Variety magazine confirms that Britney Spears has renewed her recording contract with RCA Records. The article reads: "Earlier this year she re-upped with RCA Records, which had inherited her contract from former affiliate Jive years ago." Britney says:  

“In my off-time I do record. Once in a while I’ll just go into the studio if there’s a really good song that I have in my head and want to do.

The power of Blue Ivy: BET producer suspended...

The BET producer responsible for creating a joke about Blue Ivy’s hair (read out by Karrueche Tran on 106 & Park this week) has now been suspended. It's not yet known if the producer has been suspended indefinitely or temporarily. 

Coincidentally, the show has been cancelled for the rest of the week, although word has gotten out that this was a "planned hiatus." I know they don't expect anyone to believe this. The timing is too suspect and it just seems a little too convenient.

Ariana Grande performs ‘Break Free’ on ‘America’s Got Talent’...

Miaow! Ariana Grande performed her Zedd-produced hit single 'Break Free' during the live results show of America’s Got Talent last night.

Please enlighten me as to why she consistently rocks CAT EARS as her hair accessory during performances. I'm clearly missing something here. Actually, I'm not. Although she's officially of adult age now, she still has the face of a 12-year-old. Milking this "oh, 5-year-olds can relate to me too" schtick clearly works for her. At least for now anyway.

New Music: Mila J ft. Ty Dolla $ign – ‘My Main’ (new single)...

Ungh! Mila J drops her brand new single 'My Main' featuring her touring partner Ty Dolla $ign. 

Mila shows gratitude towards a special BFF on the DJ Mustard-produced cut, which was originally set to feature Iggy Azalea. Were her pockets not steep enough to get Iggy on record? I knew this was too good to be true. I just knew it. Iggy has blown up so much that perhaps Iggy's people advised her not to?

Snapshots: A happy Mariah Carey takes twins out for lunch in NYC + fun times in LA...

The Elusive Chanteuse treated 'Dem Babies' to pizza on Tuesday, during an outing in NYC. Mariah put on her happy face while surrounded by her entourage and showed no strain following reports of her latest marriage woes. 

On that same day, Mariah's estranged husband Nick Cannon was also spotted paying a visit to his wife's Tribeca condo. It's amazing what a rumoured divorce can do for a woman's wardrobe. This is like the THIRD outting this week where she's dressed up all age appropriate.

Snapshots: Rihanna shows off bikini body on a yacht during Italy vacation...

Is Rihanna enjoying a last minute vacation before she embarks on a heavy, well-rounded campaign to promote her upcoming new album? 

Earlier today, the singer took to the high seas aboard a multimillion dollar carter yacht, the Galaxy in Sicily, Italy. The yacht reportedly costed at least $336,500 USD a week plus expenses, but that's nothing to Rihanna. According to Forbes, she has a total net worth of $188 million with earnings of $48M this year (as of June 2014)!

Beyoncé’s dad says Solange/Jay Z elevator fight was staged to promote tour...

This is cause for disowning your parents! During an interview with a Houston radio show this morning, Mathew Knowles said some pretty damaging stuff. 

He reveals that the Jay Z/Solange elevator incident was probably staged as publicity for the couple's 'On The Run' tour. Do I believe it was staged? No way! Solange was definitely furious with her brother in law, right up until those lift doors opened and they entered the car. I know damn well Solange's not that good an actress. If so, she deserves an Oscar!

'Beyoncé' is the fifth best-selling US digital album of all time...

99 problems but a flop album aint one. A highly publicised VMAs performance on Sunday night has seen Beyoncé’s self-titled album reap all the benefits.
