Jennifer Hudson says she’s unable to watch footage of her poignant performance at the Super Bowl last year because it revives too many raw emotions.
J-Hud took the stage at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans to perform America the Beautiful with a choir of students from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, who had been at the center of a massacre just months earlier.
Hudson was still grieving for her mother Darnell Donnerson and brother Jason, who were shot dead at their home in Chicago, in 2008. Lining up with the Sandy Hook children to sing at the event was almost too much to bear.
“I was not very present at all any of that time. It felt like a dream. I haven’t watched it back, because those moments send you back to a certain place and that’s a place I don’t want to go back to,” she tells The Observer Magazine.
Gunman Adam Lanza killed 20 young students and six adult members of staff in a rampage at Sandy Hook in December, 2012.
French Montana and his girl, Khloe Kardashian stopped by the Angie Martinez show on Power 105.Check out their first interview below.
“People are gonna comment no matter what. If I dated the most clean cut perfect guy, they’re gonna comment. That’s just the way it is. If I’m having fun and if I like this kid, no one else should care, they’re not f****g him. Or maybe they are, I don’t know,”- Khloe Kardashian
Myke Self fuels up with phrenetic wordplay as he covers Drake’s “0 to 100.” Introducing topics such as the ever so popular collegiate party scene, the daily grind as in independent artist, and fan girls every artist desires, Myke is approaching the checkered flag rapidly. Atypical of the prevalent “frat rap,” Myke’s lyrical edge and passion for hip-hop implies that he’s taking the road less traveled. Currently in the studio recording his full length album titled “Self Made,” fans can expect more remixes, as well as a few singles being released in the next few months. A dark horse candidate has never been so destined for success.
Lauryn Hill took the sage nearly an hour after her call time in Chicago last week, then had the nerve to snap at a fan who complained, reports TMZ.
Hill was in the Windy City for a gig at the House of Blues, and sources tell the website she was supposed to begin the set at 10:30 p.m. — but took her sweet time, and didn’t actually make it to the stage until 11:20.
Once she did, most accounts say Lauryn’s opening song performance was terrible, and when a fan called her out and flipped her off … she berated him and had him tossed by security.
The person who shot this video tells TMZ they decided to leave after two more songs (which they called “rushed and sloppy”) … and say they saw a huge line of people at the box office asking for a refund.
This past Saturday TLC brought their show to the House of Blues in Atlantic City. The ladies have been touring the world, continuing the celebration of their 20 year anniversary.
One of the standout moments from the night was T-Boz and Chilli’s heartfelt performance of their newest song, the Ne-Yo penned, “Meant To Be,” which played as part of the soundtrack for their recent Vh1 biopic movie.
This song ‘Meant To Be’ is so dear to us because we’ve been through so much, but we’ve come through it all, every time,” said Chilli. “Just like all of you MTB is for everybody, whatever trials and tribulations you guys have gone through, you get through them, because it was meant to be.”
Following the release of “Love Suicide,” T-Pain is back with more new music off his upcoming album Stoicville: The Phoenix.
The platinum hitmaker announced that he will be doing “journals” on his album in place of skits and the the mellow, piano based track “Look Like Him” serves as the first one.
Pain gets introspective on the song singing, “Baby I can look in the mirror and see, that I’m not the best looking man in the world / But, if you can look past that in me, you’ll see I’m the type of man that takes care of his girl.”
What’s poppin’ off at 3PM? Well, according to OSIYM it’s time to get poued’ up! The duo drops their hilarious visuals to go along with their party anthem “3PM Tippin’” that showcases the Toronto rappers running around with a few females, making the best out of their afternoon. From pull ups on trains, mixing OJ with that clear drank, to even an appearance from a Bearded Dragon, this one is just a good time.
