Beyoncé's mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson had some concerns over her epic Coachella set.

Tinashe's album 'Joyride' predicted to sell just 5K #yikes

Tinashe's new album 'Joyride' is predicted to sell just 5-7K in pure sales.
Horrible, but totally expected. That number is bumped to 15-20K with SPS. Tinashe recently told Cosmopolitan that she cried for two days when RCA forced her to release 'Flame' as a single. Looks like she has a lot more crying to do. 

Brandy to release new album with eOne Entertainment?

Brandy's hinting that her next studio album could be dropping via eOne Entertainment (more proof.)
What's in a hashtag? The answer to that is a lot! The singer, who is being managed by Primary Wave, has been working on a new album (as confirmed by herself multiple times.) The question is, how long will we end up waiting for it?

Tinashe & Offset perform on Fallon

Britney Spears @ GLAAD Awards #snapshots

Mariah Carey talks battle with bipolar disorder...

This week, Mariah Carey opened up about her battle with bipolar disorder to People magazine. 
This was very commendable of her, and shows great courage. There's a horrible stigma and ignorance surrounding the condition in which sufferers are pegged as "crazy." Mental illness is no joke, and someone of Mariah's caliber and status could actually help those too embarrassed to seek additional help.

Tinashe performs ‘No Drama’ on GMA

Tinashe delivered choreography and lots of it during her 'No Drama' performance on Good Morning America.
She's a cute little performer, but her music is horrible. I'm seeing some star quality, but no punch. When Ciara started out she was hitting it, but I don't see it with Tinashe. 'Joyride' is due on April 13th.
