You have to read the magazine for the cover story, however I’m just so proud to say Seattle’s Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are on the cover of Billboard Magazine’s “The Triumph Of The Indie Hustle” issue!
Check out a small excerpt for the story:
This may seem like a poor merchandising decision, but it’s illustrative of how these unlikely hip-hop stars do business. Many of their choices-starting with releasing their debut, “The Heist,” independently last October to the topics they rap about-seem counterintuitive in an age when acts rely on brand sponsors for tour financing and crucial revenue, and major labels for marketing and radio promotion, to say nothing of rap’s long-standing celebration of swag and flash. But the soft-spoken duo from the Pacific Northwest wouldn’t have it any other way. Or as Wanz says, “It’s like the emperor is actually wearing the clothes. They check themselves with everything they do.” Even merchandising, it seems. Read more…
I’m posting this because one, I actually like Jas Fly, and two this interview was supper entertaining!
Recently Jas Fly sat down with The Breakfast Club, to talk about her role on The Gossip Game, any “beefs” the public may have thought she had, and the simple fact that VH1 cuts out way too many scenes.
I found it interesting to find out how many of Angela Yee’s scenes were cut out even though they were scenes that should have been kept in. I understand that ratings won’t be as great if you show the positive sides of the cast members lives, however there needs to be a better balance. People need to see that not all bloggers and journalist beef with each other. Read more…
Let me start by saying it drives me nuts when people drop all of these pregnancy rumors before the artist can even come out and say it. I see it this way, when I become pregnant, I be damned if the world finds out about it from Eonline.com.
Earlier today, Eonline.com posted that according to their “sources” Beyonce and Jay-z are indeed having their second baby:
Blue Ivy’s gonna be a big sis!
That’s right: Superstar supermom Beyoncé is expecting her second child with hubby Jay-Z, multiple sources exclusively confirm to E! News
The news follows rampant speculation that the “Countdown” songbird was pregnant, even as the couple remained tight-lipped about their ever-growing family. Read more…
Now I normally wouldn’t post something like this on Naybesa.com because believe it or not, I actually like Kim Kardashian. However I have to say something about her and those damn heels. If Kim isn’t getting a good photo of her own feet and posting it to Instagram, the paps posting the photos online.
I will never understand how your whole damn foot can look like an over stuffed sausage and you STILL squeeze your foot in that heel. I don’t care what people say, at some point you have to put on some flats. In this case, when Kim’s ankles started hanging over her heel straps, she should have been wearing house slippers a while ago. Read more…
Joseline also says she knows she’s wrong for saying it, and it’s something she’s working on.
“At first we were super excited that she was able to perform tonight and the crowd was hype in anticipation, but after the first few songs it was clear that she should have postponed this show as well.” – Fan reactions
Beyonce, I don’t know if you’re not drinking enough water, if you’re not eating enough, or if you’re doing the same mess you were doing while pregnant with Blue Ivy when you were trying to hide it; but what I do know is I need for you to take care of your body!
Last night Beyonce performed in Antwerp, Belgium even after her doctors told her not to. During the performance, Beyonce came on stage to say:
I just have to say, I feel so good to be on this stage. I have the best fans in the world. Now, my doctors told me not to perform tonight, but there was no way in the world. I just have to say that you all have given me so much inspiration and I just want to thank you guys.
Unfortunately, although Beyonce didn’t want to disappoint her fans, it may have been a better idea to get a little extra rest before hitting that stage again. According to fans of NecoleBitchie.com “all in all the entire concert was a great disappointment:” Read more…
