Mark your calendars! According to Billboard, Nicki Minaj’s third studio album, Pink Friday: The Pinkprint, is due for release November 28th! The anticipated album follows the female MC’s 2012 release, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. While the album’s first two singles “Pills ‘N Potions” and “Anaconda” topped charts worldwide, I’m looking forward to seeing what Nicki has in store! “The Pinkprint will remind people why they fell in love with Nicki Minaj. And I think people need that,” she explained. While Nicki’s 2012 album consisted of mostly pop-felt tracks, I believe that Nicki will return to her Pink Friday roots. Nicki notes Jay Z’s 2001 album, The Blueprint, as her biggest inspiration this time around, “I want female rappers to be able to pattern themselves with what I’ve done one day. I think the album is so classic. It’s gonna feel so good and I think it will probably be something that female rappers look to as a Pinkprint for years to come,” she continued. Are you ready for the The Pinkprint? As Nicki Minaj prepares her November 28th release, her current single “Anaconda” sits at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100! Check out the video to Nicki’s controversial “Anaconda” below!
While Miley Cyrus poses nude for V Magazine, Beyonce keeps it classy and flashy as ever in her shoot for the new edition of the ‘CR Fashion Book’. While taking some risks rocking some unusual, luxury labels, the 32-year old “Flawless” singer chronicles a few of her past music videos, lifetime moments and career achievements. Along with the amazing photos comes a poem about Blue Ivy and the inspiration she fins in children, “It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse. There’s someone, we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose. I feel a deep bond with young children. All those photos in my dressing room especially those who’ve been stricken, children I’ve met across the years. They uplift me like pieces of moon, and guide me, whispering in my ear. I’m tuned to spirits, the emotions of others.” Beyonce’s ‘CR Fashion Book’ shoot hits shelves on Beyonce’s 33rd birthday, September 4th! Check out some of the photos below!

While preparing his ninth studio album Paperwork: The Motion Picture, T.I. anticipates fans with a remix to Jeremih’s summertime banger, “Don’t Tell ‘Em”. “Got a man, he ain’t do it for you? Do he? You heard that I’m the man, now you want to give it to me!”, he raps over the DJ Mustard production. T.I. has been killing all of these recent collaborations and remixes! Tip’s new album will feature artists such as Chris Brown, Pharrell, Iggy Azalea, Jeezy, Lil Boosie, Rick Ross and many others! “The sound sonically of this one is soulful, musical, kinda like OutKast’s Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik or Jay Z’s Blueprint. It just has an incredible amount of soul and a perfect hybrid between the ahead-of-the-curve, new-school sound and the classic, nostalgic, soulful sound of yesteryear.” he explained upon the forthcoming release. With his last album being released back in 2012, it looks like T.I.’s ready to do damage! Are you ready? Paperwork: The Motion Picture is due for release October 21st! Check out T.I.’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” below!
Miley Cyrus shocked the world when she dedicated her VMA acceptance speech to raising awareness for the homeless youth in America. The stunt was so shocking, many believed that the “Wrecking Ball” singer had put her wild, “twerktastic” antics behind her . . . but they were wrong! Today, Miley Cyrus’ Karl Lagerfeld-helmed, V Magazine photos hit the web and Miley is bearing it all! In one photo Miley poses topless with some fly custom Adidas boots, in anther Miley’s completely naked with smiley faces censoring her boobs. While Miley looks great in the photos, the move is confronting and leaves me asking “pop star or porn star?” What do you think about the revealing photos?
