There is no stopping the force that is J.Lo. This beautiful diva is releasing her ninth fragrance called “Love & Light” and will also be starring in a new movie. Not to mention having a new album out,  judging on one of the biggest shows ever “American Idol” and being a mommy.

When asked about her new fragrance she says,

‘With Love & Light, I wanted to create a fragrance that was less about the world around you and more about your inner light and your spirit,’ she said in a press release. ‘It’s about how you feel inside, it’s not about your outside world.’

Lupe Fiasco Reviews Lil B’s Album “I’m Gay”

Never one to bite his tongue, this beaming laser named Lupe has written a thorough review of Lil’ B’s album I’m Gay. With all the controversy suffocating the title of the album alone Lupe praises Lil’ B for his work.

So Lil B is from The Bay and he’s a youth hahaha we can stop right here! He already good in my book. But what gets Lil B admission into my coveted genre of “Liberation Rock” is his absolute lack of fear when it comes to challenging the status quo. Whether it be in hip-hop, which is very elitist and caste and class oriented, or just society in general, which is very elitist and class centric. His albeit “rocky” road musically has been honestly at times unbearable to walk on. Some of Lil B’s past works have been underwhelming to say the least and at moments I would seriously consider heading out for smoother pavement. But every now and again an absolute jewel would come to the surface and I’d find myself unable to fathom leaving this kids side for any reason. The vulgar lyrics, happy go lucky cooking dances and sometimes pointless stream of conscious style rambling started to give way to hints of a deadly serious revolutionary mentality lurking underneath. Now I’m not talking Dead Prez or Immortal Technique level stuff here but something just as powerful and meaningful. What I was witnessing was a man in the process of profound self-realization and self-awareness. And seeing that this road has led to the promised land in the form of “I’m Gay (I’m Happy)” has been for me just as fulfilling as the new understandings that I’m sure Lil Bars has come upon if the content of his new album is anything to go by.

This is merely a taste of all his thoughts. Read the full article Here.

Video: ‘Her Room (Marvin’s Room Cover)’ Teyana Taylor

Teyana Taylor and co-star Omarion get hot and heavy in the viral video for “Her Room,” Teyana’s response to Drake’s “Marvin’s Room.”  Although my favorite cover is JoJo’s, I do enjoy Teyana’s version as well.

But let’s keep it real….I can’t stop looking at her abs. #kanyesworkoutplan.

Amber Rose Addresses Nude Photo Leak

Amber Rose became the talk of the blogosphere when very explicit nude photos were leaked of her once again.  This time, she’s completely nude and touching her lady parts in various positions.  We’re classy here, so if you want to see them, you can visit MediaTakeOut -_-.

Miss Rose is very upset about having her goodies put on display for a second time this year and vented her frustration via Twitter:

“I was gonna wait until my radio show to address this but I want to say this now. I trusted someone that worked [for] me and allowed them to use my laptop a million times. I caught this person sending my pics to themselves and I fired this person immediately. Wiz and I and both of our families have known about this for 2 months now. We tried to prepare ourselves for this day. Those pictures [are] 2 1/2 years old just sitting in my computer. I’m really hurt and embarrassed because I have so many young girls that look up to me. I would never put those pics out of myself.

The company that I was working with no longer wants to work with me because of these pics and that prevents me from getting money to take care of my family. Its a messed up situation when someone so evil comes into ur life and tries to destroy it. I know I’m not the only girl in the world that has taken pics like that but they were very private. I’m sorry for letting my young Rosebuds down. Pls understand this was a result of trusting a person that didn’t deserve my trust. I have cried for the past 2 days but I know this to shall p#!@%*#. Thank u for all of ur support.”
Part of me feels bad for Amber because I could only imagine the humiliation she feels.  However, as a public figure, she should know that anything on the computer is up for grabs- people love scandal and if they are within reach of it, they will grab it.

Amber seems to be trying hard to clean up her bad girl image now that she’s with Wiz…maybe she should’ve cleaned up her computer first #imjustsayin
