An event you will not want to miss out on is happening on June 23-26, The Utah Arts Festival.
Check out the following link for a sneak peak at some of the great talent that will be showcased, click here.
The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place in Los Angeles at Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2011, and will air live on the CBS Television Network from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). With a long list of nominations including Eminem, Cee Lo, and Jay-Z all up for Record of the Year award, this show should be a banger. I am definetely looking forward to watching!!!
Drake, Rihanna, Cee Lo, Usher, and B.O.B. and many more will perform at this years show.
Now let's all hope that none of these artists have the same problems as the performers from the Superbowl Half-Time show did.
Just gotta say that I'm loving Nicki Minaj representing for all the ladies!!!! It was definitely time for hip-hop to have a female back on top of the game. And it's apparent that I'm not the only that's feeling her ish right now.
She is celebrating two accomplishments this week, as her hit album Pink Friday is sitting at #1 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart, just as the album passes the 1 million sales mark. According to data provided by Billboard, Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday, which is in its 11th week on the chart, moved up three spots from last week to the #1 position. The sales spike is being attributed to Nicki's recent high profile appearance on "Saturday Night Live" on January 30th. Pink Friday also got some extra publicity when videos of Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez singing Nicki's song "Super Bass" hit the Internet, garnering over 2 million views in just over five days. The publicity surrounding Pink Friday helped push the album's sales to 1,035,000, taking her past the million mark, making Nicki's major label debut a platinum seller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
According to an article written on the BET website, it looks like Rihanna is staying in the eye of the public which, in this case her new video for S&M, is making people talk. Good or bad people are noticing the change that has occured from this once "good girl" that is now very open with sex and controversy and "gone bad."
It's a time-honored tradition: Good Girl Makes It Big, Good Girl Goes Bad, Bad Girl Makes Over-The-Top Sexy Music Video Wherein She Sports Skintight Latex. Wash, rinse, repeat.
Rihanna's latest music video, for her new single "S&M," has got some all tied up in knots with its bondage themes and overt sexuality. YouTube has flagged the video as inappropriate for viewers under 18, and U.K. paper The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Melina-directed clip has even been banned in 11 countries.
Rihanna's "S&M" is so stuffed with teasing imagery that it becomes the visual equivalent of a poke in the ribs. She dances in a tube top with the word "Censored" striped across her chest, she eats a banana in slow motion, and she gets right up close to the camera and shakes her head around like she's got a screw loose. She's in your face: Get it?
The bound and gagged sex-symbol thing has been done before and done better by Madonna and, of course, the reigning queen of provocation for provocation's sake, Lady Gaga. Rihanna's take seems to be aimed explicitly at the press, with men in suits who are supposed to be reporters (I take it Melina doesn't know many) holding her hostage at a press conference. Newsreels flash by, during the scenes where Rihanna isn't half-naked eating sexually suggestive foods, labeling her a "slut" or "princess of the Illuminati." She leads the gossip blogger Perez Hilton around on a literal leash.
"S&M," with its "sex in the air, I don't care" attitude, is boundary-pushing in a cheap and messy way, but nothing to get up in arms about. Nearly all of Rihanna's music videos of late have been über-sexed in one way or another—that's pretty much her M.O. at this point. We suspect we'll all survive to see the visuals for her next steamy, if slightly less "in your face" chart topper.
As the Good Girl Gone Bad herself reminded us in defense of the video: "They watched "Umbrella"... I was full nude."

According to an editorial from AllHipHop,Trey Songz is facing some political issues and possibly having to pay up on a $18 million lawsuit.
A Washington, D.C. production company has filed an $18 million lawsuit over the rights to the music on the hit song "Bottoms Up" by Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj. Derrick Price, Doc Mob Records and IHip Hop Music filed the lawsuit against Trey Songz, Atlantic Records, Kodak, manager Gee Robertson, producer Kane Beatz and others. According to the lawsuit, which was filed February 2nd in the Southern District of New York, Doc Mob hired producer Milton James aka "Tony Scales" to produce the original, copyrighted track for "Bottoms Up" for his company, Doc Mob Records. Price and Doc Mob further claim the track was originally produced by James in Price's home studio. At some point, James teamed with producer Kane Beatz who added production to the song, which was eventually used by Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj. The lawsuit claims that "Bottoms Up" was contained on Trey Songz' hit album Passion, Pain and Pleasure but only listed Kane Beatz as producer of the song. Doc Mob's Derrick Price alleges that he sent multiple cease-and-desist letters to Atlantic Records and Trey Songz, but they were allegedly ignored by the defendants in the case. Kodak has been dragged into the $18 million dollar lawsuit, for using the song in an advertising campaign featuring Trey Songz.
