Queen or King B, whatever you want to say, but just make sure you call her royal, because that’s how Beyoncé looks in the photo spread for her cover feature in the new March issue of VOGUE magazine. Among the many events, performances, photoshoots and personal life adventures Bey shares some personal details about her 1-year old daughter Blue Ivy Carter, and the process of child birth.
“I felt very maternal around eight months,” she said. “And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . .But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. . . We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”
At the hospital her fears vanished. “My family and my closest people were there when I gave birth,” she says. “Everything that scared me just was not present in that room. So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction . . . it was the best day of my life.”

Kelly Rowland had everyone talking at the Grammy Awards, and in a good way! The “Kisses Down Low” singer looked stunningly beautiful on stage as she presented the award for ‘Urban Contemporary Album’ aside rap legend Nas. Directly following her appearance Kelly sat for an interview with The Grammys and made a big announcement! The R&B chanteuse has changed the title of her upcoming fourth solo album from ‘Year of The Woman’ to ‘Talk Of The Game.‘
Kelly revealed she recorded 50 songs, and has narrowed them down, and now the project tells a different story, more intimate.
“A lot of it is some slick stuff that I’m saying out of my mouth, and some things I can’t believe I’m saying,” explained Kelly. “Some of the writers wanted to push the envelope on some things, and really open me up a bit, as far as what to discuss, and somethings really hit home, really personal.”
The 31-year old also discussed the amazing Destiny’s Child reunion show at the Super Bowl, and her relationship with the ladies. See the interview below…
E! caught a rare interview from Chris Brown while on the red carpet of the Grammy Awards on Sunday. The R&B Pop star spoke briefly with Ryan Seacrest about his car accident over the weekend, and who/what he was looking forward to seeing at the big show.
Chris praised Miguel as his favorite of the year, and when asked what direction he thinks music is going in for the near future he said he just wants “real music” to come back. The 23-year old went as far as saying the dance or gimmicky music is cool, and even some of his own is gimmicky, but he wants real instruments, bands, the real essence of performing to come back.
Interesting to hear this from Breezy, and makes us wonder what he has up his sleeve for his upcoming new album rumored to be titled “X.”
The-Dream had a good time at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, hanging and laughing with Jay-Z and Beyoncé all night. The platinum hitmaker took home a Grammy in association with Frank Ocean, Jay and Kanye for ‘Best Rap/Sung Collaboration’ for the Watch The Throne opener, “No Churn In The Wild.” While he was wearing his own version of a ‘suit & tie’ Jay caught him with a slick comment about his Boyz N The Hood hat while accepting their award, thanking the swap-meet for the hat.
But, in more important news the man also known as Terius Nash has revealed he changed the title of his upcoming fourth album from ‘The Love IV’ to “Fourplay,” (That’s actually kinda dope).
Love em or Hate em but Rihanna and Chris Brown don’t listen to Taylor Swift, they are definitely back together and are so in love.
