New HAIRDO! Alicia Keys Goes Short & Chris Brown Dyes His Blue

I guess a couple of singers are getting a new hairdo for the upcoming Fall 2012 season. Alicia Keys released the promo flyer for her new single “Girl On Fire”. On the cover art, A. Keys looks sexy in a new short slicked hairdo. “Girl On Fire” is featured on her upcoming album of the same name which drops November 27. The single will be available on iTunes September 4.

Chris Brown took some inspirations from Willow Smith and added a sky blue color to his blonde hairdo. I’m not feeling Breezy’s hairdo at all! I think he went a little too over board. STOP BELIEVING RUMORS! Chris Brown will not be at the VMAs in any capacity.

Reality Stars Yandy Smith, Emily B, Somaya Reece & More Join Forces At WEEN’s Project Realism

I am so upset that I missed this event! I had a press pass to attend but I had to work on various projects for Universal Republic. Anyway, last night Wednesday (August 29), reality stars Yandy Smith, Emily B, Somaya Reece, MaShonda (Love & Hip-Hop), Adrienne Bailon (Empire Girls), Andrea Kelly (Hollywood Exes), and Meeka Claxton (Basketball Wives) joined forces for the PROJECT REALism at New York’s Helen Mills Theater. The event took place to discuss reality TV and its impact on young women. The women on the panel, held by WEEN, gave the people who were in attendance a chance to voice their opinions about reality TV as well as ways to create a more positive way for women of color on reality shows.

According to celebrity blogger Necole Bitchie, “The majority of the panel expressed that they joined their respective shows because they wanted to show the working side of women and their personal empowerment but unfortunately they do not get to control editing. They also expressed that parents should take more responsibility for their children and what they are allowed to watch. The biggest point made was that a lot of shows that portray women in a negative light are getting the highest ratings and the only way networks will stop airing those type of shows is if people stop tuning in. All of the panelists that are actively on shows made a point to never be physical while filming but they encouraged women that the best and ONLY way to see change is to continue to tune in to the positive shows and boycott the negative ones.”

THE WAVE IS OFFICIALLY OVER! Max B’s Appeal Denied, Will Be In Prison Until 2042

The wave is officially over! Rapper Max-B appeal was denied and he will remain in prison until 2042. Earlier today, New Jersey Court of Appeals upheld “The Wavy Baby’s” 2009 conviction for murder, robbery and other charges that happened at a Fort Lee, New Jersey Holiday Inn hotel. Max must serve out his entire 75-year sentence without the possibility of parole until his release on November 9, 2042.

According to NJ, “Charly Wingate, better known in the hip-hop world as “Max B,” was convicted after Bergen County prosecutors argued during a trial in Hackensack that he deployed his stepbrother, Kelvin Leerdam, and his girlfriend, Gina Conway, to the Holiday Inn on Route 4 to commit the robbery. The two targets of the robbery, David Taylor and Allan Plowden, had been seen a few days earlier in Harlem in September 2006, driving a 2007 Mercedes Benz and showing off lots of cash. Plowden testified during the trial that he had obtained the money from a mortgage and credit-card scheme before being arrested himself. He was an inmate in a federal prison when he testified at the 2009 trial. Conway, who pleaded guilty for her role and testified against Wingate and Leerdam, said she met Plowden in Harlem and that he took her to a Mahwah hotel. She said she later told Wingate that Plowden had lots of cash, and Wingate devised a robbery plan, enlisting Conway as the bait and Leerdam as the muscleman. Wingate was charged as an accomplice although he was not at the scene.”
