If you have been following my blog, you already know that it is a bidding war for New York’s rapper French Montana.

Music label, then I reported that he officially signed with Rick Ross’ MMG, now it is being reported that he signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D music label and these pictures also adds some truth to this rumor.

She’s Now Singing: Amber Rose Pursuing A Music Career

Socialite Amber Rose is now pursuing a career in music, after her upcoming reality show and line of sunglasses both have been put on hold, or might not ever see the light of day. This past Thursday (November 4), Rose was spotted at the premiere of Smirnoff’s Master Of The Mix DJ competition which she serves as a guest host. In a recent interview with BET she talked about her music career and line of sunglasses. Below are some excerpts:

Wow. Any thing other than acting going on? What ever happened with your line of sunglasses?

I’m still working on it. But it takes time. Right now it would be someone else designing them and I put my name on them, but I don’t want to do that. I’m really creative, so I want to go in and design them myself. And until I get that opportunity, I won’t be doing sunglasses. Because it has to be dope and dope things take time.  But I’m designing for Member’s Only! It’s going to be winter jackets in furs and wool with hoods and capes. I’m also going to be the new face of Smirnoff Whipped and Fluffed, two new flavored vodkas that are coming out. My billboards are going to be everywhere—in Times Square, all over the US, all over Europe. And since I’ve been in New York, I’ve been in the studio constantly working on music.

Wait, so you’re making music? Cool! What’s your sound like? Who are your inspirations?

My sound is more house, club music.  My inspirations are Missy, Pitbull, Fergie—I love the sound of her voice. I want to make really fun, high energy music that will make you dance. Everyone knows I’m from Philly, it’s a very musical city. I grew up with my mom playing music all day long, before school, after school, during dinner. I love music, I always have. And I’ve always written music, but it was very personal for me. But I sat and had a conversation with my beautiful boyfriend Wiz, and showed him and he was like, ‘Baby, you’re so talented. You could really do this.’ And he just gave me inspiration and I’m really taking it serious. You guys are going to love it.
