NEW MUSIC: Brandy "Beggin & Pleadin"

Beyonce Stage Crashes Channing Tatum

It's no secret that Spike TV's Lip Synch Battle is all rage at the moment. However, the show got what I call an awesome boost last night courtesy Beyonce.

As planned Channing Tatum was to battle his wife actress Jenna Dewan Tatum while LL Cool J judges and model Chrissy Tiegan was the dic jockey. During the show Channing had two performances. One being Frozen's  "Let It Go" (every parents least favorite song) in full Queen Elsa wear but it was his last performance that rocked the house.

As Tatum was performing (and semi-killing it) Beyonce's "Run The World (Girls)" in a full Beyonce-esque wig and leotard with dancer out comes Beyonce and pandemonium occurs. The pop star also danced alongside Tatum and was all smiles as well as all observing including Channing's opponent, his wife. It was as if Santa decided to do a re-do and Christmas was back!

Ironically (mmm hmmmm) Beyonce's appearance came just hours on the heels of the news that she too, along with Cold Play and Bruno Mars, would perform at the Pepsi Half Time Show during Super Bowl 50 at Levi Stadium in California on February 7. This being the second time gracing a Super Bowl stage for both Beyonce (32013) and Bruno (2014).

With that being said, I'm a little more inclined to tune in to Lip Synch Battle (Beyonce copy cats) and the half time show.

Andre 3000 Talks New Acting Role + Erykah Badu + New Music

Although the hip hop world is longing for new material from Andre "3000" Benjamin  his new starring role on the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated ABC hit drama American Crime will have to do for now. Last night marked  the second season premiere of the show also starring Regina King who just so happens to be Andre's on-screen wife.

Although Benjamin has displayed his thespian side more than a dozen times this will be his first starring role in a television drama which shouldn't be that hard with director John Ridley on board. Ridley directed Jimi: All Is by My Side a biopic starring 3000 as Jimi Hendrix.

In a recent interview with Billboard, Andre speaks on his new work environment as well as a collaboration with the mother of his son, Erykah Badu, but most importantly he assures fans he hasn't given up on music.

Check out a few snippets...Full Interview.

What got you interested in the American Crime role?The relationship I had with John Ridley. When he called, I knew it would be something good. I hadn’t seen season one at the time, but I trust John’s taste in that way.

How To Get A Beyonce Picture Perfect Selfie

Beyonce's stylist, Ty Hunter,  has come up with a new product sure to give you Beyonce quality selfies in 2016.

 To achieve such a high quality selfie you will need to purchase Ty's new Ty-Lite phone case. The case features a LED light trim that will afford you three different light settings for your picture perfect shots.

More about the case:
The Ty-Lite is a phone case for everyone due to its multifunctional features, benefiting anyone who owns a smartphone. It provides lighting while using the smartphone’s frontal-facing camera, while also acting as a protective case to the actual phone itself.
The Ty-Lite is a LED lighted phone case that offers users three distinct light settings: Cool, Warm, and Brilliant to accommodate any light in any environment. With the Ty-Lite, smartphone users everywhere can capture moments through pictures, selfies, videos and even Facetime, without worrying about lighting. Users can also dim the brightness in each light setting to their preferred level of brightness. The Ty-Lite runs on its own battery so it doesn’t affect the phone’s battery life, and each charge usually lasts between two weeks and one month depending upon consumer usage.The functionality and quality of the Ty-Lite sets it apart from anything else on the market. Capture moments in your best light and order your Ty-Lite today!

Hunter spoke with Glamour where he dished on how he came up with this awesome idea.

 "I'm such a selfie king and just wanted that extra light," Hunter told Glamour . "Light is so important to look your best." Hunter came up with the idea when a friend Face Timed him while he was still in bed and, let's just say, it wasn't his best look—"I wanted to look good, and I did not want to get up!"

The cases are $79.99 on the site. Will you get cop one?

Janet Jackson's Cancer Scare

It's no secret (if you read this blog) that Janet Jackson is by far one of a few of my favorite entertainers so it was with great sadness to hear she is being tested for throat cancer according to Yahoo! News.

Recently Janet had to postpone a few dates on the second leg of her Unbreakable World Tour beginning this week (Jan 9) because she was in need of surgery of some sort. Janet confirmed the news via her website.

“I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the ‘Unbreakable Tour’ until the spring.“Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time…There will be no further comment.”“Hey you guys…Happy Holidays to each and every one of you! 
Sources close to the situation have added that Janet plans to return to touring this summer after a break to recover. Back in October she had a brief sabatcle from touring to rest her voice and some experts feel that if this is in fact throat cancer the iconic entertainer's career could be over. Her voice will be lost.

With that said, Janet's voice can never be lost because she is a fixture in not only music but history. I believe in miracles as well as God and therefore have faith all be well with or without that hideous pest we call cancer.

 Get well, Janet!
