Happy 50th B-Day Mike!!!


The undisputed King of Pop Michael Jackson turns 50 today. I know, time really does fly by...

For over 4 decades Michael has thrilled music listeners and audiences alike with his unmatched catalogue of hits and stage show performances. Arguably the greatest performer of all time, Michael's impact on music resonates till this very day; and no doubt will continue to do so for years to come.

Speaking from his home in California, Michael talked with Good Morning America yesterday about his big day, reminisced on his storied career as well as future plans:

On his plans for his big day:
"Just have a little cake with my children and we'll probably watch some cartoons -- before getting right back to work.

His greatest achievements (Songs) / Future plans:
Oh boy, that's a hard one," he said, before singling out "We Are the World," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller."

But Jackson was not content to rest on his laurels, saying, "I am still looking forward to doing a lot of great things."

He hopes to release new music and tour, though he doesn't have dates set.

"I am writing all the time," he said. "I love composing and the whole thing. But I am also raising my children and enjoying it and teaching them to ride bicycles and how to read. I love it."

On his kids:
Asked if he'd like his two sons and daughter to have the same sort of upbringing as him, he said he'd prefer to let them "enjoy their childhood as much as possible."

"I let them go to the arcade and go to the movies and do things," he said. "I want them to get to do the kind of things I didn't get to do. So, I fill them with a lot of enjoyment that way -- a lot of amusement. You know?

"I get pretty emotional when I see them having a wonderful time," he added, "when they are on a ride and they are screaming and they are happy. ... It makes me emotional, 'cause I see they are having a real good time."

Jackson said his kids "love music ... they are very much into the arts," but that, "I don't push them."


Ummmmmm, I thought when you battled another M.C. the #1 rule is no touching?!?!?! If you can't take the lyric get out of the battle.



Jennifer Hudson performed her rendition of the national anthem Thursday afternoon at Mile High Stadium in Denver to kick off the final day of the Democratic National Convention.

Earlier this week, the ‘Dreamgirls’ Oscar winner and former “American Idol” contender was asked personally by Senator Obama to perform at the event. Hudson, who calls Barack a “great role model,” told Entertainment Tonight that she had never yet sang for such a large crowd.

“This is definitely one of the biggest honors for me,” she said. “It’s something that I’ve really wanted to do.”

Rapper as made Billboard chart history this week with the first single from his forthcoming 'Paper Trail LP, 'Whatever You Like' :

T.I. establishes the mark for biggest jump to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, as "Whatever You Like" soars 71-1 in its third week on the list.

A No. 1 opening on Hot Digital Songs with debut-week sales of 205,000 downloads is the cause for the record-setting Hot 100 move, which surpasses the 64-1 jump taken by Maroon 5's "Makes Me Wonder" in May 2007.

"Like" is the rapper's first No. 1 as a lead artist (he was featured on Justin Timberlake's 2006 chart-topper, "My Love") and his opening-week digital sum is the best by a rap track since Nielsen SoundScan began compiling download data in 2003.

Teairra Marí recently spoke to KING magazine about former label-mate Rihanna's comments about her last year. Check out an excerpt from Marí's feature below:

Teairra took offense to some comments Rihanna made to Atlanta’s Peach magazine regarding her dismissal from the Roc. Rihanna said, “You have to be good to people. I could very easily say its all karma…”

“They asked her how she felt playing second fiddle to me, which I never felt [she was]. She had the number-one song in the country on Hot 100; I didn’t, so she couldn’t be playing second fiddle to me. When I heard that I was upset, like, ‘Why would she ever go there? Keep my name out your mouth, sweetie.”

Watch as Solange checks this newscaster, I must admit I didn't like her introduction as well. Whatever was said off air must not have been good as well. I say more power to you Solange, and also more power to the newscaster for keeping it professional. SAYIT!!! `


Word has it superstar siblings Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson will appear on stage together for the first time in 13 years at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards on September 7th:

Although Britney shot promos for the VMAs, we're told the real gold is Michael Jackson. Sources close to the awards tell us MTV honchos have been working OT to get Jackson to reappear at the awards.

We're told a deal is as good as sealed to have MJ present an award with sister Janet.


With Michael's 50th birthday just days away, a high profile appearance at the show really isn't far-fetched. Here's hoping they do in fact appear.

"Annoucement" is the first single off Common 8th album Invicible Summer in stores September 22nd, the song is produced by The Neptunes and feature one of the member Pharrell, check out the video !!!!!

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson will sing at the request of presidential hopeful Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday.
The 'Dreamgirls' star, who won an Academy Award and countless other honors for her co-starring role as Effie White in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical, will perform the National Anthem in Denver when Obama accepts the party's nomination.
"I'm so proud and excited for him. I haven't gotten a call from them yet, but he does have my support," the Chicago-bred singer told E! Entertainment back in June about the Illinois senator.
In other Hudson news, the 26-year-old singer has been on a whirlwind promotional tour gearing up for the Sept. 30 release of her debut self-titled album.

After producing strong ratings, TBS ordered a full-fledged series with an unprecedented 100 episodes. SAYIT!!!

Check out this video of K-Ci and Jojo performing while on tour in Syndey, Australia. I Can't..... I Can't....... He passes out, and then security just walks on and grab the mic like, shit not again....... I Can't.......

See what a fan wrote below:

So last night some friends and I went to see a Jodeci "reunion tour" at the Enmore theater in Sydney. Mate, the whole thing was a disaster. First, one of the guys (Devante I think) didn't even show up, so it became a K-ci and JoJo concert. JoJo came on stage and right away you could tell he was messed right up- he kept forgetting the words to songs and just was a general weirdo. But then, after about 40 minutes into the "show" he decided to sit right down on the floor. His brother, the other crackhead K-ci was trying his best to carry the show on his own. By far, the best part of the evening was when JoJo walked off stage for about 5 minutes, then came back out to sing "All My Life"- and PASSED OUT mid song. His brother told the audience that they were tired after their 24-hour flight and that JoJo had gotten dizzy.
